This is becoming the fashionable thing to do, apparently. Veterans flocked to Washington, D. C., to intimidate Congress into giv- ing them a bonus. Now Mayor John F.:Dore of Seattle swamp Olympia with a small Army if the governor refuses to convene the Leg- islature in special session. Undoubtedly the result will be the same at Olympia as at the national capital. Calls Mayors' Metlng Mayors of 26 municipalities from Bellingham on the north to Camas on the south, Soutk Bend on the west to Grandview, Yakima valley, on the cast, met with Mayor Dore at Se- attle, last Saturday to discuss the economic problem. It was decided to demand a spec- ial session to appropriate funds for providing work for the unemployed; funds to, come frSm sources to be decided upon by the governor aml the Legislature. If Governor Hartley refuses to heed this demand, then Mayor Dove promises to mobilize 'his Army and march against the capitol. Incidentally the Seattle executive might be also planning to use this Army in his march after Republican votes for the nomination for gover- 'nor. Protest High Tara There was not a mayor attending the conference but who cried out a- gainst high taxes. Each told of tax failures, of inability' of taxpayers to meet demands; of property lost and reversions of property to the coun- ties. All spoke of low percentages of taxes collected and resultant inabil- ity of municipalities to meet current operating costs. In the face of all this, however, they demand that the governor get the Letgislature to session on an e- lection yeax, on the eve of a primary campaign and let it provide ways and .means for settling the :unemployment problem. It goes without saying that if the cities, towns, counties, and taxpay- ers' generally all over the state have twinges of a headache now, what will they have after such a special session ends its labors? Headaches are bad "enouggh but (Continued On Last Page) PUBLISHED IN THE INTEREST OF AND TO THE "GATEWAY TO THE FAMOUS OKANOGAN COUNTRY." SLIGHT CHANGE IN .

D. Gensing'er, East Wenatchee business man, while ill Brewster Sun- day, made the following formal an- nouncement of his candidacy for state representative on the Republican ticket : E. D. GENSINGER At the request of a number of my friends I have decided to announce my candidacy on the Republican tick- et for one of the two representatives from the district comprising Okanog* an and Douglas counties. In the reapportionment bill passed at the last session of the state legis- lat.ure, Okanogan and Douglas coun- ties were placed in one legislative district having two representatives instead of each county being a sep- arate legislative, district with one representative from eah.

Only a small per cent attended. A resolution was passed by those pres- ent, u1,,ging the Governor to call a !special session. Mayor 1)ore of Seattle, in his cam- paign for election, promised to pro- vide jobs for all the unemployed in Seattle, numbering some 40,000. On the day of his inauguration the City Hall square was thronged with un- employed who had came to cash in on the promises made. The mayor, during his campaign, also promised a reduction of 25 per cent in taxes. Since both of these pomises could not be carried out it was quite nec- essary that the unemployment situa- tion be met in another way so he proceeded to pass this responsibility on to the state, which is not author- ized to deal with purely local func- tions and no machinery ix provided by law for the administration of re- lief by the state. Would Hit Rural Communities Another group urging the calling of a special session, while keeping more or less under cover, is made up of a number of the larger taxpayers in Tacoma and Seattle who would like to see state aid and il this way pass a part of their unemploy,nent relief taxes to Eastern Washington agricultural communities. This group argues that the large numbevs of un- employed in the Coast cities repres- ents industrial workers out of em- ployment because of closing down of plants for whom the state should as- sume responsibility. This g'roup feels that the whole state shouhl help feed those unemployed, although not de- nying that these men are in fact a pact of the communities in which they now find themselves stranded and where their salaried and wages were all spent during the years they were employed in these industries. Most of the legislative leaders are vep6rted as being opposed to the call- ing of a special session of the Legis- lature, realizing that the state has no funds to contribute for relief except as they are taken from the people in taxes. Any state-wide attempt to deal with the administration of un- employment relief would result in many inequalities in distributing tile burden since most of ttle Eastern Washington communities are caring for themselves quite effectively.
