Moving Picture Shows Popular.
! The moving picture show on Sat
urday night at the theater was at-
I tended by a fair crowd. The views
were excellent, and aside from one
or two exceptions hardly worth re
cording the machinery moved
smoothly. The views were some of
tho best ever seen. They embraced!
new subjects, and were of a hu-j
man Interest character. Tho series'
of vie, s showing the murder of the]
murderer and Killed him after a
spirited hnife duel were bully. The
series entitled 'The Mother's
Dream" were also good. "Bill."

The illustrated songs won a hand

Uncle Sam is making careful ano

preserving wood which are expected to
result in the saving of millions of dol

tar creosote is a most effective preser
vative of timber, and a number of ex
periments are being made along this
line. The economical utilization of
many woods which are very suscepti

IX spite of a half year's record, which in most lines of business
will be the equal of last year's phenomenal figures, nearly all
experienced business men are of the opinion that WE ARE
FACING A PRACTICALLY CERTAIN RECESSION
IX TRADE, that we have ahead of us a period of smaller
industrial totals. There is no longer the disposition courageously to
enter upon new enterprises. Railways are curtailing expenditures.
Bankers are inclined to exercise CAUTIOX in extending accommo
dation. Most manufacturers and merchants are planning their fall
campaigns with much conservatism.
THAT THE PERIOD AHEAD OF US IS ONE IN WHICH COM
MERCIAL ACTIVITIES WILL BE CURTAILED AND MANUFACTUR
ERS' TOTALS SHOW A DECREASE THERE IS REALLY LITTLE DI
VISION OF WELL INFORMED OPINION.
The question that is desirable to consider is only in relation to
the extent of this recession. Will it be but a dip, lasting only a few
months, giving us but TIME TO CATCH OUR BREATH before
we march on to renewed accomplishments in this most wonderful
development of prosperity, or is there to be a more protracted and
serious disturbance ?
I believe the answer to that lies wholly in the public mind and
temper. There is no INHERENT reason in the conditions of agri
culture, trade, industry and finance in the United States that would
make necessary a period of further disturbance and depression. There
are a thousand influences that should lead toward CONTINUED
PROSPERITY and renewed accomplishments throughout the fields
of industry and commerce.
The business of the country will turn into one of these roads,
solely as the result of whether or not the public and the public's legis
lative representatives are wise and putient or are hasty and incon
siderate. If THE INTRICATE PROBLEM OF RAILWAY
REGULATION is worked out in a spirit of fairness and intelligence,
if the vastness of the problem is recognized, if the involved relation
shin- encountered are taken into account and the far reaching effects
of paternal regulations when applied to so great and complicated a i t
work are reckoned with, and if an intelligent understanding of the
complications will lead to a patient attitude toward results, then I
believe we will resume the road toward further prosperity.
THE MOMENT THAT INVESTORS HAVE BECOME CONVINCED
THAT THE PROBLEM IS TO HAVE FAIR AuD PATiENT CONSID
ERATION IN ITS SOLUTION WE WILL STAT.T ON THAT ROAO
AGAIN WITH FULL MEASURED PACE.
But if we are to have legislation based upon political advantage,
if we are to adopt SOCIALISTIC theories which will amount to the
CONFISCATION OF PROPERTY RIGHTS, if we are to have
reprisal for past wrongs, no matter how real, if action is the one
thing v.-anted first and the consideration of the intelligence and fair
n< i ■ t such action is to come afterward, then I believe it is possible
that Tin: whole business structure may be fac-
FXG A DANGER the proportion of which will be measured by the
same vast figures as have been the totals that have marked the extent
of our prosperity.

A Fishermen's Grievance.
Great Britain has a sort of state

have nullified the laws of Newfound
land with respect to Americas fish *
men. and the home government backs
cp the proceeding.
This fisheries matter is very much
!;ke the Japanese school question in
San Francisco. Through a treaty with
the Cnited States Great Britain ignores
the local laws of her colony. Mean
while the fishermen on the spot hive
been fighting it out among themselves
to the great scandal of diplomacy and
treaty making if not of lawmaking.

i Hello! Gensinger!
How is Hanford? Hanford is alt
right. And I am very anxious to
have you know all about it.
i I will tell you what you find there.
A very large scope of very fine land;
j comparatively level sage hrush land.
The Hanford Irrigation and Power
■ Co. of Seattle have under their pres
ent canal about 32,000 acres of land,
with about 10,000 acres plotted In
ten-acre lots. This gives you a large
number of tracts to select from. You
( can get just what you want; near the
canal, near town and near the river,
' above or below the canal, with or
| without water. Wells can be had
j anywhere at a depth of from 40 to
'200 feet, owing to the elevation.
jThe town of Hanford is located 33
miles up the Columbia river from
IKennewick. The company is putting
( in a monster power plant at Priest
Rapids, 40 to 100,000 horsepower,
and will furnish power for pumping,
lighting and running electric car line
to many points throughout the state.
They have a line surveyed and have
under contemplation an electric car
line to Wenatchee, and will be in a
position to furnish power to our city
as well. Six R. Road Co. have sur
veyed in the vicinity of Har.ford.
