NEW PARTY IN STATE Costs of Government To Be Reduced By Combining the Diffet;ent Divisions. The younger generation of the state is upon the political stage today with a proposal for consolidation of city, county and state governments, which they say will reduce the cost of government approximately 50 per cent. Plans are being advanced by the New Order of Cincinnatus, state-wide political organization of men be- TREE TUESDAY EVE was considered from an orchestra from Snohomish County, asking spe- cial consideration for the first night, in the n a t u r e of an experiment. After discussion, Master Bradley asked members of the executive com- mittee to rmain after the meeting to decide on action to be taken. A disastrous accident occured at the big new bridge just above Sno- qualmie Falls last night, resulting in damages estimated at over $150,000. A gasoline truck skidded into the west end of the bridge and the ira- pact with the steel burst the tank, striking a spark that caused an ex- plosion. This and the raging fire that followed wrecked the bridge which fell into the river carrying the truck with it.

Their plan is to reduce the num- ber of offices by abandoning county lines and dividing the state into IO or 12 large districts. Port districts, school districts, irrigation districts, and other forms of special tax dis- triers would then be merged with the enlarged district, they said. Cities within districts would retain their form of government, but would be limited in the amount of taxes they could levy. Spokane, Tacoma and Seattle would be separate dis- tricts. Many of our cities and counties are facing actual insolvency because of the high cost of government, they de- clared, and such a plan to eliminate duplicating functions is inevitable if (Continued on page five) degree~ The usual luncheon was served.

Donlan in Seattle yesterday noon, the occasion being the annual Christmas luncheon of the Woman's Republican Club, held in the dining room of the Ber- gonian Hotel. Ladies who attended from Issaquah were Mrs. W. E. Gib- son, Mrs. John Neukirchen, Mrs. C, W. Peters, Mrs. P. J. Smith and Mrs. J. E. Carlson. A MOST APPROPRIATE GIFT As a general rule, most of us are somewhat lax when it comes to letter writing. We have friends and relatives in others sections of the country with whom we want to keep in touch, and we know they are anxious to keep in touch with happenings in the home town. But, somehow, we can't bring our- selves to write to them as often as we'd like to. And yet there is a happy solution, and an inexpensive one. Why not take just a moment to subscribe for the home-town paper to be sent to some former resident The many friends of Mrs. Julia Harshman of Fall City will regret to learn of her death on,Monday. Fu- neral services are being held at Fall City this afternoon, with many friends attending from here.

It will be as reg- ular as clockwork, and a weekly reminder of your thoughtfulness. If there is anything that would make a friend or relative in a distant part of the country as fine a Christmas gift, we can't think what it would be. For it is one that not only gives service and pleasure, but that keeps your friend or relative constantly reminded of you. If you wish, we'll send along a card telling them that your thoughtfulness makes the gift possible. Think it over, then drop in and tell us what you think. Federation of Garden Clubs. The purpose of a state federation is to bind the garden clubs together to act as a unit when need be on legislative questions pertaining to conservation roadside beautification and other matters pertaining to garden club in- terests, and to serve as a clearing house of information and service through various standing committees to member clubs; that is, organiza- tion for mutual helpfulness and al- so state usefulness.

The state and county machinery for this is now in operation. If a group of ten or more desire work in a study and a local school, club or church will pay the other expenses the teacher will be furnished with- out expense to the students or com- munity. The plan briefly is: I. The adult (person over 16) notifies the local school superintend- ent that he wishes to take up a cer- tain branch of study. 2. When enough names are secur- ~d, the local superintendent applies to the county superintendent for a teacher. 3. The county .superintendent ;hooses out one of his available teach- era and sends him immediately ~o the work. Courses to fit a variety of needs are possible. High school graduates could take up higher branches of mathematics, a different foreign lan,~age, as Latin, German, agricuI- ture, etc. Those who have not had the ad- vantages of schooling could learn to read and write English. This work woul~ be very useful and would be handled in a tactful manner. Tell your non-reading neighbor about this and encourage him to enroll prompt- ly.
