of Everett. Is a candidate for the Pro

ond the northwestern section of the
state Including King County, outside
the City of Seattle, which, with Kitsap
County now constitutes the First Dis
trict and the Fifth District. Including
the Northeast and the City of Spokane.
Representative J. A. Falconer Is a res -dent
of the new Second District, but
his candidacy for the Senate leaves the
district open to new men. The onl
filings so far in this district are those
of LIndley 11. Hadley. of Belllngham. a
Republican, and George E. Adamson. of
Everett, a Democrat.
The new Spokane district is expected
to bring forth a large number of can

filed. They are C. C. Dill, formerly pri

Wa-ren W. Tolman. Harvo Phipps. a
Progressive and ex-State Senator, has
