A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE
Senator Lewis speaking at a .banquet given him by old
Seattle friends, Thursday night, called attention to the
fact that after the war is over this country will face
trobble with several countries, and especially with Japan.
He asserted that the Mdnroe doctrine would certainly get
us into trouble sometime, and we must either be ready to
defend, or abandon it. The European nations, he thinks,
will make renewed efforts to gain a foothold on the
American continent, and Japan will not always accept the
treatment given her in regard to the standing of her peo
ple in this country and their being denied the right to
own land. He thinks Japan will demand of her present
allies that they help her to compel America to grant her
subjects the same rights as are granted all other nations.
At the same time he thinks the issue in the next political
campaign will be whether .America will enforce her
doctrines and bear the expense of the increased necessary
navy and the taking over of islands adjacent to us that
might be used as a base of attack by foreign powers. This
he says we must either do or qualify our Monroe and
Asiatic doctrines so as to allow the world to come into
America just as we are demanding to go into the world.
Naturally, if we fail to grant these concessions the
countries we discriminate against will retaliate by ex
cluding our goods and later, if this does not accomplish
the object, by excluding our people. If we resent this, as
we probably will, we will require a strong navy for it will
mean war, and that war will be fought largely on the
ocean. Senator Lewis discussed the matter at some
length and gave his hearers as well as the country at
large, food for some hard thinking.

some cases arising under it in his county, if necessary to
the supreme court. The dispute started over the filing
of claims under the law, for back pensions, amounting to
more than $4,000. The judge points out that the last law
on the subject gives county judges large discretion, and
that they can find it in many cases for the best interest
of the children that they be sent to some state institution.
This would remove the grounds on which pensions are
applied for, and intimates he will give this course a trial.
r?..r,A Arii-mvi nf S:m Frnnciseo wants a divorce. He
alleges that when he married he expected to and was will-'
ing to support seven pledges of affection his wife ac
cumulated in a previous marriage, but he did not expect
to support the wives the boys acquired later, and draws
the line at taking care of the two blushing brides recentlj
brought home by them and installed at the family table.
His wife savs this is "cruel and inhuman treatment and
so filed a counter claim. The decree was granted. Fred
now has a separate stall and feeds by himself.
Philadelphia and Brooklyn met yesterday ,on the
diamond, but only to part as Jupe Pluve took a hand and
made a regular sea of the field during the third and the
game was called thus keeping all baseball fandom on the
rack and almost inducing nervous prostration for some
of them. It may be settled today, or at least it will be
nearer the end.
In his speeches yesterday Hughes declared that he
favored the eight-hour day for working men. Then what
in the world has he been kicking about ever since congress
passed the Adamson bill?
The dispatches dailv tell how tired Mr. Hughes is.
Still whatever condition of weariness he may reach, it
will be trifling to that of the reading public caused by
"With twenty-two big ships operated by one company
it would seem the Pacific Coast is at last coming into its
own in the way of ocean transportation.
In his speech in Seattle Thursday night Senator Lewis
of Illinois, made this clear statement of the enactment
and effect of the eight-hour day law for railroad work
ingmen: "Judge Hughes says there should have been
arbitration. I answer, there was no law in existence
providing for arbitration. There was; no law to en
force any arbitration. I remind Judge Hughes that his
party came into power after Cleveland, at the end of the
great Pullman car strike. They were also in power when
the telegraphers had their universal strike. But his
party passed no law to prevent a repetition of such
strikes or to provide arbitration. I ask Judge Hughes
under what law was there to be arbitration? Who were
to be the arbitrators? And what does he say could have
been done to prevent the strike while the attempt at
arbitration, which had been progressing for months with
out success, continued? Judge Hughes says the people
will ,pay. Why will the people pay any more than they
have been 'paying? The railroads have always made the
people pay. The last returns by the railroad, made under
oath, show that for the last railroad year, ending the first
of last month, 55 railroads, one-third of the total in the
United States, had made net over one billion dollars.
If it be true, as they claim, that $50,000,000 are to be taken
from the public to pay the increased wages under the
eight-hour law, which might give more food, better
clothes and better conditions to the toilers, let it be seen
that even then the roads are still in possession of a net
profit of $950,000,000, and this but one-third of them. Is
this not enough?"
The horse show last night again drew a great crowd
and demonstrated that it is a feature of the fair that has
come to stay. This being the case the fair board will be
forced to make some arrangement for seating the
visitors. It was an experiment this year, arid the tem
porary arrangement, while probably the best that could
be secured hastily are far from satisfactory. Part of the
seats were all right, having foot rests, but a large por
tion of them was not so provided, and the visitors bal
anced on the little narrow boards with no place to put
their feet, and squirmed and twisted in utter discomfort
for three hours. Their movements reminded one of a lot
of chickens trying to get settled down on their roost, only
they never settled. That the horse show is a winning
card is thoroughly demonstrated by the fact that the big
audience stayed on the roost to the end.
As usual the Capital Journal, because of its full leased

wire United Press service, was enaoieci 10 give us read
ers the British view' of the war Thursdays through a
voirmvL-nh.lv frank interview with David Llovd-Geoi'ge.
It was a great newspaper beat, and no Associated Press
paper had a line regarding it. Almost daily the Capital
Journal gives its readers exclusive news from Germany
through Carl Ackerman, the special representative of the
United Press at Berlin, which is far more reliable than
anv matter received bv rival news associations, as has
been proven time and again. The Capital Journal s
telegraphic news service is beyond question the most com

accounts for the .popularity of this paper with the read

Colonel Roosevelt is billed to speak in Michigan at
Battle Creek. So far no notice has been given of his be

time friend, LaFollette holds forth. The committee is
finding it difficult to find places where the Colonel's ap
pearance will not do more harm than good. It would
probably overcome the difficulty by not having him speak
anywhere, but realizes that the colonel would not survive
an enforced silence during a whole campaign, so he is
given a chance to let his safety valve get loose occas-

MILDRED HAS A DINNER PARTY
LWUU. Ml! '.'V
( HAPTLIi XXXV.
It was n gay, laughing group that
trooped into the dining room. Although
it was to be a formal dinner there was
no formality among my guests. The
oh si and the ah si that greeted
their first view of the room was proof
of that. I had seated Mr. and Mrs.
Franklyn iu the place of honor, and
put Mr. Brooke as far from me as pos
sible. He went iu with Daisy Moore,
a pretty girl soou to be married to n
western man. But I frequently caught
him looking at me, nnd iu such an ad
miring lunnuer that I felt myself flush
ing. My dinner, from the first course of
iced'melous filled with small fruits to
the roffee nnd liquers, was i success.
Mandy really outdid herself. Each
course elicited praise from everyone.
"I shall tiever dare give another din
uer as long as I live! " oueyouug niatiou
declared, "that is. unless Mrs. Ham
mond will lend me her cook."
"Your dinner was perfect. " Mr.
Frnnklyu said ns we left the table.

I was so pleased nnd happy I didn't
know what to do. The dinner had gone
off without a single hitch, Kate and
Annie had served perfectly. Had Clif
ford beea home I don't believe even he
would have found a thiug to grumble
"You are a very accomplished little
woman." a voice said at my elbow, and
I turned to find Leonard Brooke smiling
dow n on me. " Your dinner and service
"Oh, I am so glad," I returned. "1
was so awfully afraid it wouldn't be.
You know- I never gave a real dinner
"Then you are all the more wonder
ful. Did you have a decorator arrange
"Why, no! I did that myself."
"Then you are a fairy, I believe.
I'm going to watch for fear you sud
denly disappear drive off in a pump
kin coach or something like that. A
modern Cinderella. But really I can
hardly believe that ydn could manage
such an affair; you look so young."
Was it any wonder I was happy, in
spite of Clifford's having left me?
"I Din young." I replied. "Perhaps
that's the reason I wao a little nerr
ous." Just then Kate brought in the
card tables, so there was no more time
to talk. We played five hundred, as we
were ou uueven number for bridge. Ev
eryone seemed gay and happy. The
women all looked so pretty, the men so
fine, that suddenly I fouud myself wish
ing that Clifford could look in on them.
He would surely be pleased could he
see what an attractivelot of young peo
ple they were. If he would ouly meet
them, he couldn't help liking them.

He was so uncertain. I kaew so little
of his nlaas that I felt it ui ..no-;n
talk about him.
They remained until after 1 o'clock,
when they all went away together. Just
before Leonard Brooke 'said good night
he asked mo if he might come in the
next evening for a few minutes.
"Certainly," I replied. "I shall be
glr.d to see you. I am going South the
next day, you know."
"Yes, I' know. That's the reason I
want to come.' '
I was so happy I couldn't sleep. I
lived every minute of the evening orer
nd over. It was my first affair. It
had beeu an unqualified success. It
augured well for the future.
