FOR IMPROVEMENT OF OKA
NOG A N AND POPLAR—CHANGE
MISSION STREET PLANS.
The first business of the city coun
cil last night was to hear the pro
tests on Mission. Okanogan and Pop
lar avenues. There was no serious
protests to any of this work. Some
slight changes were made in the
plans as outlined by the city engin
B*. W. .Tones and J. M. Duffy, and:
in fact most of the residents of Mis
sion, between First and Second, pro
tested against improvement on that
part of the avenue. Mr. Jones ex
plained that while the people favored 1
improvement, yet they wanted to j
wait to see the results of the im- i
provements in other portions of the j
city. The council decided to accede
to the protest. The residents of this
street between Orondo and Kittitas
Objected to the parking strip and by j
motion of the council the plan pro
viding for this was changed. It also
seemed to be a sentiment of a large
part of the property owners that
Mission street should be paved be-,
tween First and Kittitas and further
action on the improvement of this:
- sireet was deferred until the next j
meeting that the sentiment of thej
property owners could be fully ascer-:
On Okanogan avenue it was final
ly decided that from Orondo avenue
to Kittitas there should be a 50 foot
roadway. C foot sidewalk and a 7
foot parking strip on each, side of
the sidewalk, and from Kittitas street
to the city limits the roadway should
be 3tl feet. 4% foot sidewalk and 2
foot parking strip on the outside of
On Poplar avenue there was no
protest at all and it was decided to
make the roadway 40 feet, 4 foot
(Sidewalk, and Z\~> foot parking strip
on each side of the sidewalk. Ordi
nances will be prepared at once for
the improvement of these streets.
A petition was presented last night
from property owners in the Colum
bia Firiuge addition for water. A
ffumber of the residents of that sec
tion agreed to pay their water rent
12 months in advance providing the
extension of the mains would be
made to take in that addition. The
matter was referred to the water
committee with power to act.
W. S. Gehr asked that Second
street, between Wenatchee and Col
umbia street, be leveled and stated
that if this is done at once he would
lay a concrete walk along his build
ing on that street. The council in-'
structedTiie city engineer to have the'
street crew put to work on this street
and have it finished at once.
Consulting City Engineer Hanford
submitted a written report on the
new water system. The engineer
went very thoroughly into the pump
house and city reservoir work. A
number of changes were suggested
and the city engineer was instructed
to comply implicitly with the sug
gestions and recommendations made.
A resolution was submitted for
the improvement of F street in Gar
den Home addition. October 26 is
the day set for protests on this work.
Ordinances were passed providing

ADJUTANT GENERAL STATES RK.
yIT REM X.NTS FOR NEW COM
PANY AND SAYS WENATCHEE
MAY HAVE ONE.
The Oomereial club is in receipt of,
a letter from the adjutant general of
the state of Washington. Two new
companies of militia are to be organ
ized in the state and providing We
natehee can comply with the regula
tions it is possible to secure the loca
tion of one of these companies at this
place. The matter was brought to
the attention of the members of the
Commercial club at the meeting held
last Monday night and a committed
was instructed to take the matter up
with the residents of the city who
might be induced to take hold of this
matter. The committee consists :f
Ira D. Edwards. Le mMcKittrick and
W. S. Trimble. The letter from the
adjutant general is as follows:
Seattle, Sept. 28, 1909.
Chamber of Commerce, Wenatchee,
Wash., Gentlemen: By direction of
the adjutant general I have the honor
to advise that the military depart
ment of the state of Washington will
organize two new companies of in
fantry in the near future and it is re
quested that if your locality would
be interested in securing one of these
companies that you communicate
with this office and take the matter
up with your citizens and secure the
cooperation of the business men of
your community in circulating such a
petition among the eligible men who
might desire* to become members of
the National Guard of Washington.
It must be clearly understood thai
no company will be mustered into the
service until the adjutant general can
be assured that it can comply with
militia regulations, and the state and
federal laws governing the organized
militia. The company must have 58
men before it can be mustered in and
prior to that time a competitive exam
ination will be held for the purpose
of securing a captain for the com-
; pany, who must have served at least
one year as an officer and three years
in the aggregate in the National
Guard of Washington or some other
state, or three years in the volunteer
or the regular army of the United
States or as a graduate of a military
college of the United States requiring
three years military study.
The matter of a proper building for
armory purposes is also one o r the
conditions which mas; be satisfa#
torily met and it will be necessary for
j your city to assure us that such a
| building is available before a com-
I pany could be considered in your lo
i cality. The standard of efficiency re
: quired of National Guard companies
at the present is so high that unless
your community could guarantee that
you could maintain a company at the
proper standard of efficiency with a
minimum of not less than 58 men it
would be impossible to muster in a
company at that point.
We are mustering in a company in
the city of North Yakima and felt
that Wenatchee might be a proper
and satisfactory company station for
one company, and we will appreciate
any information which you might oe
able to give us in furtherance of this

REMODEL BLOCK OWNED BY
FIRST NATIONAL RANK.
Work was started this morning by
j Alexander Pierson, the contractor for
the high school building, on the work
remodeling the Rosenberg block,

natcliee Canal company. The en
trance to the basement will be from

SIDE ROUTE TO WARRANT
CARRIER TO COXTIXUE JOli—
RESIDENTS MEET OCT. 123.
Ever since the establishment of ru
ral route No. 3 there has been diffi
culty in keeping carriers. The route
pays but $75 per month and the car
rier is obliged to furnish his own
team and equipment. The route is
i 4 miles long and a hard one.
Some two weeks ago the last car
rier resigned and it has been impos
sible to get a successor. The resi
dents of East Wenatcb.ee will have a
meeting Saturday, October 23. for the
purpose of seeking a $25 per month
guarantee for this route. With $10' i
per month it is expected that it will
be possible to keep a permanent car
rier. Under the present conditions
the patrons of route No. 3 are obliged
to get their mail at the postoffice
here, causing a great deal of incon
venience. The meeting is to be held
in the Commercial club rooms at 1
o'clock on Saturday. October 23, and
it is expected that there will be large
attendance of east siders.

DAISY RANCH. 20 ACRES, OWNED
BY A. C. DALLACH, PASSED TO
THE CONTROL OF MRS. L. P.
WORL OF FLORIDA.
The well known Daisy ranch -if
Sunnyslope, owned hy A. C. DallacD.
manager of the Orchard Growing
company, was sold today to Mrs. L.
P. Worl of Florida. The sale was
made by the Ira D. Edwards agency.
The consideration has not been made
public. The tract consists of 20 acres
in bearing orchard. Mrs. Worl has
been here a number of times in the
past and each time she has visited
this valley has been better impressed
It is with regret that Mr. Dallach
gives up this title to the Daisy ranch,
for it is one of the best young ranches
in the entire Wenatchee valley, but
his 'duties as manager of the Orchard
Growing company have lately been so
many that it has not been possible to
give a full bearing ranch the atten
tion it should have.
