PORTLAND. Me., June 1. (Special.)
What promises to be the most effec
tive enforcement of the liquor law in
all Maine's SO years of prohibition is
now well under way after many years
of political football with the prohib
itory laws. The people of Maine are
demanding state-wide enforcement.
With the administration of Governor
Haines the situation has taken a new
turn. Violations of the law in the cities
of Maine had become flagrant. Illicit
liquor sellers had fitted up steel-cell-lnged,
tiled-floor emporiums with as
complete stocks as could be found in
license cities. The slogan now of the
law-abiding is: "So long as the pro
hibitory law Is on the statute books,
we will have it enforced."
Governor Removes Sheriffs.
Governor Haines has caused to be
removed several Sheriffs in whose com
munities the liquor traffic has long:
been openly conducted, and he lias is
sued his ultimatum, which, in enTect,
is that he will have removed from of
fice promptly, even though it becomes
necessary to call a special session of
the Legislature, any Sheriff who per
mits liquor selling. The result Is that

a diploma of graduation from the Olympia High School this week,
has no equal in the State of Washington. The record is 11 years

of the common schools and four of the high school in the 11 years

Second .and third choice votes
count exclusively for the candi

It is wise to vote second and

second or third choice votes to
an unfit candidate who appears
to be politically weak.
The advantage in second and

King Would Make Ixss Good if Red
Tape Could Be Cut.
ington, June 1. A bit of history has
been unearthed by Senator . Jones
wherein Captain I. F. Tozier. of Seat
tle, played an important part. A re
port was made on a Senate bill In 1910
which was in the nature of an omnibus
bill of requests for the return to the
original recipients of such gifts and
decorations as had been presented to
officers of the United States by for
eign governments, and Tozier was
mentioned in this report.
In the case of Captain Tozier- a
sword had been tendered him by the
King of Great Britain for "cordial and
valuable assistance" rendered by him
during the search for H. M. S. Condor
along the west coast of Vancouver
Island. -
According to a paragraph of the
Constitution, no person holding any
office or trust under the United States
could accept any present, emolument,
office or title of any kind from any
king, prince or foreign government
without the consent of Congress.
It is contended by the friends of
Captain Tozier that the sword pre
sented to him was in lieu of the one
of his own lost in his search fox the
British vessel and for this reason it
could be returned to him without
awaiting special permission by Con

Assiduous Attention to Books Wins
Name of "Bookworm" From
Colleagues in House.
ngrton, j une 1. Representative Haw-
ley, of Oregon, is undertaking to break
the Congressional reading record. He
is setting a new record at the Con
gressional Library in books read by
members of Congress.
These are comparatively dull days
for House members and many resid
ing in the eastern states have gone
heme to wait until the Senate finishes
with the tariff bill, or until it be
comes necessary for the House to de
vote itself to currency reform. Mr.
Hawley is not in a position to go
back to Oregon, for If his presence
should be required suddenly he would
not be able to respond. So he has
taken to reading as a diversion, and
never a day goes by but he skims
through at least one and sometimes
two and three works from the flies
of the Congressional Library.
During these early Summer days.
Representative Hawley is never found
without some interesting volume
tucked under his arm or spread before
him. When his daily grist of work
is disposed of at his office, he turns
to his books; when the debate or do
liberations of the House are dull and
uninteresting, Mr. Hawley may be seen
lost in the pages of some interesting
bit of fiction or some famous histori
cal work, and not infrequently, when
the House is going through routine
matters, the Oregon member hunts
out a- comfortable arm chair in the
House lobby where he can read undis
So intent Is Mr. Hawley on his array
