WENATCHEE'S FIRST DAILY.
With this, onr first issue, a word as
to our poliov is perhaps needed. Wi
believe this section of the state to
have great repources and great prem
ise, c wish to do our part toward
developing these resources and bring
ing the prom 83 to piss. We shall try
to be an active, helping factor in not
alone the city of Wenatchee and the
county of Chelan, but also in our
neighbor counties of Douglas ano
Okanogan. We believe that here will
be built a large city, whose broad
minded citizens will develop and aid
in the advance of the entire section
that we hope to acceptably represent.
It is our intention to make The
World modern and up to-date in its
news features, clean, conservative and
reliable. Politically, The.World will
uphold and try to advanoe the princi
ples of the Republican party.
ONE WAY OF BOOSTING.
Patronize home industries. If you
have a dollar to spend, spend it rigln
here in Wenatchee. Every doll r's
worth of goods bought in Chicago, Se
attle or Spokane means a loss to the
local merchant and indirectly a loss
to the entire community.
Wenatchee's stores carry as complete
lioes of merchandise of every kind as
an ordinary mortal is in need of, and
the prices are actually lower in many
instances than on the same goods in Se
attle. If there are any extraordinary
mortals in town we can spare them
and everybody would be the gainer if
they would move to some place where
true worth would be appreciated and
they would have the satisfaction of
knowing that their goods were pur
chased at Scmebody-or-other's store,
even if th-?y did pay more. The man
who sends money out of town for some
article that he conld have purchased
heie is an enemy ot the town.
We don't need a "boosters' olnb" to
keep Wenatchee bowling right along on
the high road to prosperity. It every
man, woman and child would follow the
rule of buying of the home merchants,
the betterment 01 the city would be
immediately appreciable. There is no
other one thing which would do so
much to insure Wenatchee's prosperity
JOHN HAY, STATESMAN.
A great man has gone to rest. In al ;
that makes a man loved, honored and
respected by his fellowmen, John
Hay excelled. He was a type of all
that is best in American life, both
public and private. An author and
poet of merit, a historian, humorist,
journalist and orator, his many gifts
made him a marsed man of the cen
t jry and his good deeds live after him.
His successful labors to preserve the
peac6 of the world are perhaps his
His life is a beacon to every man
who aspires to the heights of fame
and honor always aooorded the mem
ory of the truly good and great.
He lived his life; the world is bet
ter for his living; his memory is hon
ored now and will be in tbe fntnre.
SOME FIKST THINGS.
The Wenatchee Daily World is the
first daily paper to be published on
the line of the Greit Northern Railway
between Everett and Spokane. The
firsf to subscribe for the World
was Mr. F. M. Soheble of the Scheble
Lumber Company. Mr H. I.Newbauer
of the Wenatchee Department Store
was the first to sign an advertising
contract with the new paper and alio
the first to contrionte a page adver
t sement. Mr. Ira Edwards was the
to furnish oopy for his
ad. The first copy of the paper was
purchased by O. S. Sampson, may
or of Wenachee, and the first man to
make a payment on his subscription
was Mr. D. Leonard.

i " The Torpedo Is King.
When the Japanese torpedo boat flo
tilla destroyed several of tbe large
Russian warships at Port Arthur there
was a decided reversal of sentiment
among the naval experts of all nations
concerning tbe value of torpedo craft.
Experiments previously made with tor
pedo boats indicated that they can be
terribly effective under certain condi
tions. Tbe mechanism of the subma
rines is of course very complex, and
much depends upon luck whether they
con be used to advantage in actual
conflict. The results In tbe strait of
Korea are almost certain to give to ad
vocates of torpedoes in warfare new
proof of their superiority.
The torpedo Is certain to play a part
in the defense of ports and channels.
It was used in the civil war at Charles
ton nnd Mobile, but not to an extent
which could decide a conflict. The
Confederate General Beauregard was
n believer In torpedoes for harbor de
fense and used them with effect at
Charleston in 18C3. Under his direc
tion the famous cigar shaped subma
rine boat which destroyed tbe United
States warship Hoosatonic in 18G4 was
perfected. A greater use of submarine
boats would have been made at
Charleston but for Beauregard's re
luctance to permit sailors to take the
chances of disaster In experimental
craft. Several crews were lost In the
cigar boat before It scored a success,
and even then the entire crew went
down alongside of the enemy which
In comparison with battleships tor
pedo boats are inexpensive, and a
belligerent can well afford to lo3e half
a dozen with every man on board in
order to destroy one battleship. At the
last session of congress when the naval
appropriation bill was under discus
sion arguments were made in the com
mittee rooms that money should not be
appropriated for battleships on ac
count of the showing made against
vessels of this class by the torpedo
boats at Tort Arthur. More torpedo
boats were recommended, but the gen
eral board of the navy favored battle
ships. With the torpedo growing in
importance the big ships will soon be
obsolete In naval armament.
Tbe Exposition at Portland.
Although the Lewis and Clark cen
tennial exposition at Portland, Ore., is
small in comparison with the world's
fairs of 1593 and 1004, it Is a big show
in Its way and celebrates a big event.
The residents of the whole Pacific
slope have uuited to make the exposi
tion a success.
A century ago the Lewis and Clark
exploring party traversed an unknown
wilderness, and the story of this ro
tua?;tlc acMevesoent as .veil as that of
the marvelous development of the re
gion during the past 100 years will be
told graphically by the varied exhibits
;it Portland. The history of (he expe
dition and of the conquest of the wil
derness which followed it Is unknown
to the mass of the American people.
As they excite curiosity and add
knowledge in different features of our
national growth, fairs like that at
Portland are valuable and should at
tract a liberal attendance on the part
of those who wish to become acquaint
ed with the most absorbing and thrill
ing Incidents of pioneer development

THUMPING A KING
[Coypright, 1905. by T. C. McClure.l
The old Calabar river flows Into the
bight of Benin, on the west coast of
Africa and twenty miles up the river.
In the year 1862 was born the kingdom
of King Oyaaapoo. The British had
bad possession of that coast for thirty
years, but more In name than !n fact.
Their authority was supreme wherever
settlements had been made or ports
opened, but up the numerous rivers
and back from the coast the native
chiefs held full sway.
Oyainpoo was a man about forty
years old and chief of the Adamawa
tribe. lie began making war on other
tribes as soon as he had been elected
chief, and at forty he was cock of the
walk for 500 miles arouud. In twelve
years he had licked nine tribes and
brought them under his rule.
Traders had visited him and sold him
firearms and taught him how to use
them, and deserters from whale ships
and men-of-war bad found refuge with
him and taught his treops the white
man's drill and built forts to defend
bis capital on tbe water side. Cannon
and ammunition were wanted for those
•forts, and so one day when a French
survey brtg came up the river she was
seized and disarmed and her crew
made to shift the guns and instruct the
natives in their use.
Oyampoo wasn't cruel, but he was
ambitious. He had Just got bis forts
In working order when the British gov
ernment sent a gunboat up the river to
knock them about bis ears and humble
his pride. It wasn't a success. He
sank tbe craft In half an hour, and
such of her crew as sun lved were held
prisoners for months.
He expected the British to fight, and
there was a glad song In his heart
as he saw their ships in imagination
sailing up the muddy old Calabar to
give him battle. Within a distance of
seven miles he erected nine forts and
five or six earthworks. He counted up
and found that he hadn't cannon
enough, and be sent a fleet of war
canoes down to the gulf to see what
could be scooped in. As luck would
have It, a merchantman laden with
military supplies for Cape Coast Castle
had put In there in distress, and her
rapture was an easy Job. There were
twelve cannon among her supplies, and
these went up tbe river to be mounted,
while her 2,000 muskets went to arm
J.OOO more of the king's fighting men.
According to Oyampoo, things were
coming his way and be was leading the
procession, but there was a little cloud
forming on the horizon which was be
yond his ken. The British had their
hands full elsewhere on the coast just
then, but they finally got around to
tiike the king's case under advisement.
All needed particulars were learned
from traders and deserters, and when
an expedition finally set out it knew
what It was up against.
Oyampoo bad posed as a strategist,
and be had had the advice of other
posers, and yet they fatal mis
take. All the forts h;ui ueeu built on
narrow islands in the river, with a
deep channel flowing on each side, and
the batteries in front of the town were
protected only by flimsy earthworks
and could be taken In reverse. The
depth of the river was well known,
and the exact location of each fort was
mapped out. Four men of-war, accom
panied by two transports carrying
2,000 infantry, made up the expedition,
and when it had gathered at the mouth
of the river Oyampoo sent word down
that he would demolish It on sight. As
a matter of form he was asked to sur
render, and he returned word that he
would have the ears of the commander
of the expedition.
It was thought best to make an ob
ject lesson of Oyampoo and to make
a fair stand up light of it. The ex
pedition, therefore, advanced up the
river with wind and tide one morn
ing about 8 o'clock, and word was
sent to the king of Its coming. Salvos
were fired and hurrahs given, and by
and by the head of the line appeared.
Two of the fighting ships took one
channel and two tbe other, and in th's
way all the forts were taken in re
verse. The transports did the same,
and the rifle fire poured into the em
brasures, and the roar of the forts was
enough alone to drive the natives from
Of tbe fifteen mounted cannon not
more than three were fired more than
once. The big shells from the fighting
ships knocked tbe earthworks to pieces
and dismounted the guns, and the rifle
fire mowed tbe defenders down by the
score. The men-of-war sailed up to
the city without a halt and with only
three men killed, and, anchoring In
front of the capital, they knocked it
into smithereens within half an hour.
What huts were not knocked to pieces
were reduced to ashes in the confla
The natives did not run away like
cowards. On the contrary, they fought
In a way to compel admiration and yet
without a show. When flesh and blood
could stand It no longer they broke
and fled, and the victors landed and
finished the chapter. It was three days
before Oyampoo could be induced
to come forward and take a little
fatherly advice. He had lost his king
dom, bis capital and his armament,
nnd he had had 800 of his army killed.
He was told what would be expected
of him in the future, and his written
declaration was taken that he would
forever bear allegiance to tbe British
In three .short days he was reduced
from a boastful and powerful ruler
to a contrite and badly frightened sub
ject, and the lesson was one he never
forgot. Two years later he was pick
ing up shells at Cape Coast and selling
them to traders for a living, and wins
he happened to get in the way of- a
white man he was kicked asMe like
