Readers of the Daily World will \
"remember that some weeks since j
John Miller started to build a livery
stable on Chelan avenue, just below
the Baptist church, and adja
cent to the homes of several prom
inent citizens, the latter immediately
raising a very audible howl.
Miller stated at the time that he
was not in the least buffaloed" by
the strenuous objections to his plans,
though work on the project has not
gone forward as yet, except that
building materials were hauled to the
proposed site of the new livery barn.
RIVER RISES FAST
BET BRIDGE IS SAFE
Six More Timber Supports Go Out
Early This Morning—Xo
Danger to Structure.
The river is now nearly 30 feet
above low water mark.
This morning at 4 o'clock six more
of the bents which have been sup
porting the new bridge went out.
They had been secured to the bank
by means of a Ix 4 inch steel cable,
but this snapped in two under the
heavy strain, and the timbers were
swept down stream, trailing a long
piece of the steel cable after them.
The builders of the bridge had antic
ipated trouble with the rapidly rising
water, and last night came up town
and made arrangements for men to
come at once to the bridge in case of
trouble. So within 20 minutes after
th? supports went out this morning
a crew of men had been aroused by
telephone, and were at the scene of
The river is now so high that it is
impossible to run the trolly cable car
across the river. On the opposite side
are several large timbers which it is
desired to use as a sheer-boom, and
these are being hauled up the river
bank to the Wenatchee ferry, and
will be brought across on it, and tak
en down for use at the new boom
which is being put in.
The bridge contractors feel that
there is very little probability of the
bridge being menaced any further,
as should the river continue to rise,
it is probable that the current will
shift toward the opposite bank and
not grow any stronger on this side,
where the temporary supports now in
danger are standing. These supports
have already been guyed with cables,
to make them more secure. Had the
present flood but come a week later,
the necessity for false work or under
pining would have been past, as the
overhead arch-work or span would
then have supported the horizontal
girders which the loss of the supports
has caused to sag.
A force of six watchmen are at. the
bridge, and steam is being kept up
in both the donkeys for use in case
Prof. Aiivile Resigns.
Some days ago Professors Deniston
and Auville, of the Whitman school,
had a "falling out." Professor Au
ville was formerly in charge of one
of the surburban schools, and was
subsequently transferred to the Whit
man school. It appears that he and
Mr. Deniston held different views on
some subjects, which lead to a dis
agreement. The matter was aired be
fore the school board, and just what
tram-mired there is not clear. Prof.
Auville, however, resigned on Mon
day last, and was paid his salary to
AGTOR TELLS OF
WRECK AT DOWNS
Broken Rail the Cause—Many In
Lee Willard, whose dramatic com
pany is now appearing at the Wenat
chee theater," this morning told a
Daily World man about the wreck at
Mr. Willard was on the west-bound
train, which readied the scene of the
wreck soon after the disaster. Speak
ing of the accident he said: "A
freight car with a flat or broken
wheel had so damaged the rails that
any train follow ing was placed in
utmost danger. We could plainly
see the .damage inflicted by the bad
wheel of the freight car, which was
the cause of the accident to the east
bound Xo. 4. The diner, the day
coach and two sleepers were turned
over, the engine and the rest of the
train remaining on the track. About
100 yards of the track was torn up.
The head chef on the diner, a negro,
was probably fatally hurt; he was in
very bad shape. His assistant was
also badly injured, and a number of
other people were more or less hurt,
though no one was killed.
Treated With Great Consideration.
"I wish to say,*' continued the ac
tor, "that the officials of the G. X.
were most kind to us. A special
train with doctors from Spokane
came through on its way to the
wreck, and we were invited to ride in
a private car of one of the officials,
which was coupled onto the special.
Of course we were obliged to walk
for a mile or more to get around the
wreck and the stretch of damaged
track. The company then made up a
special at a point this side of the
wreck, and we were brought to We
natchee at 9:10 last night. We left
the station, hastened to the theater
building, prepared hurridly for our
performance and rang up the curtain
at 9:30. It was making a quick con
nection, wasn't it? Xone of our scen
ery, and but a scanty wardrobe, could
be carried on the special, and we
were greatly handicapped at last
night's performance. Tonight we pat
on "Monte Cristo." Most of our
scenery and all of our wardrobe save
a few trunks has arrived."

WENATCHEE TO BE CENTER
OF WHOLESALE COAL TRADE
New Fuel Company With Two Hundred
Stockholders Organized—Side Track
and Bunkers to be Built
Wenatchee is to become the center
of a large wholesale trade in coal
during the coming season. A recent
ly organized company, known as the
Catchall Fuel Company, has been or
ganized with its general office in We
natchee. Agencies have been estab
lished in the towns along the Great
Xorthern between Cashmere and
Wilson Creek and G. C. Calentine,
president and general manager of the
company, will leave for a trip up
the Columbia where he will establish
more agencies. Seven cars are now
being distributed in Wenatchee and
the tow ns along the Great Xorthern.
There are in the new company two
hundred stockholders, ail of whom
are users of coal and the consump

pany will run into the hundreds of

$75 AND GOSTS
Vendonie Cafe Man, Accused of Keei>
in Pallid Meal on Hand,
The first "results." ia the meat in

Vendome Cafe; was haled before Jus
tice Palmer and fined $"."> and costs.
Appel was arrested this morning
at the instigation of Dairy and Food
Commissioner L. Davies, charged
with having in hi 3 possession "adul
terated foods," with the intention of
selling the same, "To-wit: Summer
sausage and dried beef, which was
adulterated by virtue of being decom
posed and putrid."
The trial of Appel was short and to
The only witnesses called were the
state inspector, Mr. Davies, and his
assistant, William Adams, better
knows as "Willie the Meat Man."
Mr. Appel made no defense, plead
ing "guilty" to the charges as read
by Prosecuting Atorney Crass.
As published exclusively in yester
day's World Mr. Appel had ten tons
of beef products in Groves' basement,
which were seized and burned by the
May Be Some More.
Rumors are floating about today
that there is another car-he of bad
beef concealed in the suburbs of We
natchee, and not yet fallen within the
convuleiveiclutch of the state inspec
tors. An effort will be made to lo
cate it today.
Clean Conditions Now.
Commissioner Davie a said today
that an inspecton of the local meat
markets lately made by hm shows
them to be in better condition than
the average country town markets,
by far. Ye. terday Mr. Davie3 called
on some of the grocery stores, and
had a look into their premises, cel
lars, etc., and says that conditions
are sanitary and in good shape. This
will be gratifying news to nervous
people who have been worried about
their food supply ever since the dam
aging disclosures in the meat sensa
tion a week or more ago.
Monte Cristo Tonight.
The wreck at Downs held up the
scenery of the Willard dramatic peo
ple and delayed the company itself
to such an extent that it was not pos
sible to put on the play which had
been adverised, 'The Count of Monte
"A Western Gentleman," staged
without scenery and with but twenty
minutes of preparation, was well re
ceived by a small audience. The re
port circulated in the afternoon that
on account of the annulling of the
side-track will be put in and the
grading will begin this week.
iSheds will be built to protect the
wood during the winter months.
"With all of our agents along the
line," said Mr. Calentine today, "I
think there is no doubt but that as
much coal will be handled by the
new corporation as by all others com
Mr. Calentine, the general man
ager and president of the company,
is in receipt of letters from the par
ties with whom he deals and there
are evidences that the coming winter
may be as disastrous as that of the
past year unless those needing fuel
use some efforts to get get in a sup
ply this summer.
The same feeling exists among the
railroads and there seems to be an
action along the line to induce those
needing coal to purchase the same
during the coming months.
Every man the fills his basement
with coal now will not only save half
the price of coal the coming winter
but will have coal when it is Impos

Elected Manager of Wenatchee Val

J. B. OHnger has been elected as
general manager of the Wenatchee
Valley Frutt Growers' association.
For the past few months Mr. OHn
ger has been at Puyallup where he
went to assume the management of
the Puyallup and Sumner Fruit
Growers' association, taking the place
vacated by W. H. Paulhamu3. But
the need of a man of his capacity has
been felt keenly by the local associa
tion and the growers consider them
selves fortunate in being able to close
a contract for his services.
Mr. Olinger was in c-harge of the
warehouse of the association last
year and the year previous was lo
cated at Cashmere, and as a result is
well acquainted with the needs of the
organization. He is expected thie
