W. B. Staniford of the Amercian Railway Express Co., was in town Friday in the attempt to tind some lone to take the local agency who had sufficient room to store the num- erous bulky packages received here. Because of delay in removing ship- lments the present qualers were too small. 1 No one being found who couhl and would take the agency the office was closed on November 5th. Hereafter all express matter will be delivered either by the Tacoma or Olympia office. Express notices can be deliv- ered either to the purser of the boat for Tacoma or stage drivers for Olympia. While it is a considerable shed tears in the reaction. It marks the day when no annoyance to local patrons it seems more of our boys would be sacrificed in the great slaugh- the only service possible at this time. WILL ASK ACT TO JAIL THE BOOTLEGGERS. The state legislature, which c0n: venes in January, will be asked to enact a more drastis prohibition law despite the fact that the federal stat- ute's are designed to make all states bone dry. Donald A. McDonald, federal pro- 'hibition director for this state, has taken the initiative in the movement, and he has announced that the legis- lature will be reque,sted to pas a law that will send to jail every per- son convicted of liquor selling. Mc- i Donahl has enlisted the aid of George D. Conger, of Seattle, secretary of the state Anti-Saloon lea.gue, and Fred Shoemaker, commlssmner of public safety, in the movement. "As British Columbia voted wet, a ter, even if many still were doomed, never_ to.reach_ their_ ,LAW VIOLATOat ....... At'm stringent law is' needed in Washing- homes safely.

Con. 20 follows: Hoquiam 77.24; Aberdeen :for the future. Armistice Day will grow with future organization and encouragement for the young men who have fought the country's battles in the near past and are to carry on the work of their fathers for the future. With such a baptism of service the country will be safe in their hands. One of the first great problems to be aced by the new administration is that of immigration, and the sooner the open door is pushed to the narrowing point the better for the country. Other first issues are tariff, taxes and a working agreement with our allies. . , '! : READY FOR ADJUSTMENTS The ordinary citizen needs no particular credit for his foresight in preparing for the change in conditions sure to follow the era of inflation in all things the country over. Doubtless such have 'prepared for more settled conditions when a dollar will bring a full dollar of return, whether in labor or needful supplies. While there may be some unfair things to follow in the wake of readjust- ments it is hopeful to feel'that the country is in the hands of an administration, every department of which will be on the job and co-operating to make conditions for all as equitable as possible, and that the interests of the public as ultimate consumer will have full share of atten- tmn. If nature takes its course in the form of' supply and demand and without artificial stimulant, things will not go far wrong nor long wrong. , . * . . ihe silk shirt eia m American history ]s passing and the element which has been wont to "soak" its dia- monds and glad rags on occasion for hooch finds the necessity of transferring finery for food; at least in the East.

The Senate is Repub- lican by 19 and the House by 151, the latter rather more majority: than the  Republicans care for. It assures, however,, that the: Republican program will be carried out, and the country hopes that the new administration will prove equal to the heavy task ahead of keeping the balance as well as the peace an d prosperity of the people. While Mason County gave the Repu)lican electors 997 votes, the Democrats 383 and the Farmer-Laborites 351, the voters did not forget the other divisions on the ba"lot. The straight Socialists found 25 supporters, the Prohibitionists 19 and the Socialist-Labor candidate re- ceived but four votes in the county / a THE BEST WAY OUT In spite of what little Mason County could do to boost for the Carlyon referendum, and incidentally boost f,r its best interest, the measure was swamped over the state. We are not particularly concerned whether a ccaent trust was behind the bill oran asphalt trust put- ting up the funds to fight it, but we are Concerned over the fact that Mason County is bound for a quarter-mil- lion dollars to hard finish its highway, and must look to its representative to find the way out. According to late returns from North Dakota Gov. Fraz.;er, the Nonpartisan candidate for re-election, had nosed out his Democratic opponent, O'Connor, and also Ladd, candidate for senator, won out With the returns i from back counties. In the several other states only a few minor candidates were elected. .,, ........ o, ......................... acres. Con. $10, I)ella F. Kneeland wtd to W. A. Johnson, wd, blk 1, Kneeland's add.
