WOULD ANNEX MIL
RHSIDENTS OF THAT THOROUGH
FARE DEMANDING IMPROVE
MENT IN STREET —TAKE AD
VANTAGE OF CITY LAWS.
An effort will be made this spring
towards the improvement of Miller
street. Already estimates have been
made for grading, placing on of six
inches of crushed rock and a coating
of shell rock at a cost of $20,000.'
This is the longest straight stretch
of road in the valley—about three
miles in length. The property own
ers feel that it would be a good in
vestment to improve that piece of
road and an effort will be made to
Taise the finances to improve it. It
is said that it would be easy to raise
half of the required amount from the
property owners, providing the coun
ty commissioners would appropriate
the other half and the county board
will be interviewed on this matter in
the near future.
There is another plan being dis
cussed to take care of this matter
and this is by annexation to the city.
This plan is being freely discussed.
Should that be done it would be pos
sible to throw Miller street into an
improvement district and bond fori
the amount required to improve the]
street. It is thought that «his plan ;
might be carried out and a canvass
of the property owners will be made
on this line in the near future.
There is a determined effort al!
over the county towards the improve- j
ment of the thoroughfares and the I
Daily World has received information !
from all parts of the county that the,
proposition to bond for $200,000 fori
good roads is generally agreeable and'
there stems to be no opposition to the;
scheme. The residents up the river i
are crying for the betterment of the
roads. Malaga people want improve
meats and all over the county there' l
is felt the demand for improvement, \
and the only way that it can be done
satisfactory is to bond for $200,000,
to $300,000 and have main trunk
lines laid out. Last year the county
expended some $26,000 on roads
Providing the county bonded for
$200,000 the Interest on this would
not be over $9,000 per year, and with
the $200,000 the county would be
laying the foundation for a system of
good roads which would greatly en
hance property values, conduce to the
improvement of the land not now
under cultivation and eventually re
sult in bringing a great many more
settlers into the county.
It is felt that there is a necessity
in the state for the enactment of a
law which would allow districts to
go into improvement districts and
bono' for road and bridge building!
under plans similar to that provided'
for in cities, and there is a probability
that such a law will be enacted by
the next legislature.
Would Make Trip to Mansfield.
Some months ago there was a talk j
among the business men of the city
that it would be conducive to better
trade relations between the Wenat
chee business men and the towns
along the line of the Wenatchee-
Mansfield railway for an excursion
over that road. This plan, however,
was not carried out. but there seems
to be a general feeling among the
fuisiness men that if somebody should
fake the Initiative in setting up the!
'xcursion that it would be well pa
'ronized and would be productive of
a great deal of good. It has been
stated that a special sleeping car
might be provided to leave here on
the regular train, which departs at
about 4 o'clock, and the return could
be made on the regular train which
arrives here at noon. It is likely'
that after the first of the year this
excursion may be arranged.

SAYS SPOKANE IS
( ASHMERE GROWER SAYS THAT
MISTAKE WILL BE MADE BY
WEST IF APPLE SHOW IS TAK
EN AWAY FROM SPOKANE.
Editor Daily World: I read your
article entitled. "Apple Show —
I think that Spokane is the place
tor the next of third NattocsS Apple
show, not from a real estate point of
view, but from an educational point
Who makes the apple show, the real
estate men or the growers. Now, as
a grower I think that Spokane is the
best place to hold the next show. We
that attend the apple show derive a
great deal from it. It is the best
school for the grower that he has
ever attended. The only trouble is
to get him to go and study. When I
go and see good fruit poorly put up
ir makes me think that the grower
ought to go and see the apple show
and learn how to handle apples. We
had a number of exhibits at the last
one that were very poorly handled,
but not near as many as at the first
one. I could see a great improvement
in the second one and expect to no
tice more in the next if I am able to
attend it. I will admit that from a
real estate point Chicago is the best
place, but I think we had better do
some more missionary work at home
before we start out to teach others.

BATTLE ROYAL IN
PEOPLE OF NORTH YAKIMA WILL
DECIDE TODAY EITHER FOR
OR AGAINST SALOONS IN THAT
North Yakima. Dec. 30.— "Vote
saloons out and North Yakima will
be dead;" "Vote saloons out and
North Yakima will prosper as never
before." These are the statements,
for and against local option, which
will be decided here today, and the
campaign waxes hot.
Agents of the Royal Arch, a liquor
organization, and agents of the Anti-
Saloon league from Seattle and else
where are fighting a fierce battle and
a barrel of money is being used on
The contest will probably be very
close and the chances favor a victory
for the "drys."
Wealthy citizens have assured the
liquor men that business enterprises
will be found for all houses vacated
by saloons, and declare that the im
mense saving in the maintenance of
courts, jails, police and hospitals will
more than offset the business that
will be outlawed by local option.
Yesterday a sew element entered
the fight when more than 100 promi
nent ranchers of the rich country sur
rounding North Yakima paralyzed the
saloon adherents with a full-page ad
vertisement, to which their names
were signed, declaring against the
saloons, and pledging unlimited fin
"We are not citizens of the city."
they said, "but we are heavy property
holders in North Yakima and we pay
the state and county taxes imposed
because of the saloons. We are de
termined to destroy the evil, root and
branch. We have as much pride in
North Yakima as the citizens who do
the voting and are determined to
help slay the rum demon. If the
c;iuse is lost this time we shall im
mediately take steps to keep the cam
paign hot until another election can
be called. The saloon must go."
The defeat of the "drys" at Walla
Walla merely served to increase the
vigor of the North Yakima "drys."
who claim victory is assured. They
have ample funds, probably more
than the liquor element, since the
rancher brigade has entered the fray.
Every citizen is eagerly interested
and a full vote will be polled.

TO EIND MARKET
EOR SOFT FRUIT
FRUIT GROWERS' ASSOCIATION
SATISFIED WITH FINANCIAL
EXHIBIT MADE FOR THE PAST
The meeting of the stockholders of
the Wenatchee Fruit Growers asso
ciation was a very harmonious affair
yesterday, and the members are very
much pleased with the financial show
ing made. The annual meeting oc
curs on January 31, at which time
officers and directors for the coming
year will be selected.
A committee was appointed yes
terday to solicit among the members
for soft fruits. It is generally con
sidered that the peach crop for the
coming season in this valley will be
enormous and already plans are be
ing made to market this crop. Two
years ago the association made a
failure in handling the peaches. An
effort was made to handle all that
was brought to the association and
as a result the association and non
association members brought in their
fruit and an effort was made to han
dle it in the east. Under the plan
outlined for this year the association
will handle only the soft fruits of
those who agree before the opening
of the season to market it with the
association. Plans are already being
formulated to establish an eastern
market and the plan is to find out at
once just what growers and approxi
mately how much fruit it will be
necessary to find a market for.
Already there is some speculation
as to the coming board of managers
of the association for the coming year.
It is generally thought that more
business men are needed on the board
of directors and an effort Is being
directed to that end. P. P. Holcomb
is the present head of the association
but it is not known positively as to
whether or not he will accept the
position for the coming year if it
should be offered to him.
Committee Meeting With Success.
The committee appointed recently
jby the Odd Fellows lodge to solicit

Cincinnati, 0.. Dec. 30.—For the

by the poor.
Nashville, Term.. Dec. 30.—For the

at this point is covered with ice.
Louisville, Ky.. Dec. 30.—Fast in
the grip of the coldest weather in
years. Louisville with several million
bushels of Pittsburg coal almost at
her door faces a coal famine. The
Ohio river, for two weeks unnavi
gable on account of floating ice, is
today frozen almost to the shore, the
first time in many years, which pre
cludes the possibility of bringing coal
down the river for a week at least.

The Wenatchee Business College

BACHELOR JUDGE REFUSES TO
BECOME PARTY TO TRANSAC
TIONS WHERE PARTIES DESIRE
TO "COMMIT MATRIMONY."
It is said that Judge Grimshaw,
the bachelor member of the bench
ot Chelan county, refuses to officiate
at welding ceremonies. The judge
refused to marry a couple who came
to him yesterday and several other
couples in times past have met with
the same fate.
It is said that the thought of mat
rimony even for himself or in con
nection with his friends gives him
nervous prostration. And as it is
oftimes customary for the presiding
official to kiss the bride, this is an
additional reason for his refusal to
sob-ionize the contract.
Judge Grimshaw occupies a unique
position from the fact that he is said
to be the only superior judge in the
state who has gone on record in his
refusal to aid Cupid. In fact, his
official actions point the reverse as
a search of the records show that he
has already dissolved a number of
marriage contracts. which other
authorized officials have been in
strumental in making.
While- Judge Grimshaw has been
positive in his refusal to officiate at
wtddings. Judge Sumner has not
loudly advertised the fact that he is
authorized to perform the marriage
rite, and in fact in the few cases in
which he has officiated he bribed the
newspaper boys not to say anything
about it, but that within the next few
months the latter expects to memor
ize the marriage formula and he

NEW YEAR'S RACE
ENTHUSIASTS HAVE ARRANGED
INTERESTING PROGRAM FOR
SPRING WATER AV'ENI'E COM
MENCING AT 10 O'CLOCK.
The New Year's races will be
pulled off at 10 a. m. on Springwater
avenue. Free conveyances will starr
at 9:30 from the Department store
corner, and private rigs will be wel
come additions. Men are working
on the track today, and with the new
snow that is falling it is thought
that the track will be in fine shape
on Saturday. The start will be from
Murray street, going east, and the
finish will be at the Lewis and Clark
school. Wenatchee business men
have welcomed the racing idea and
without exception have enthusiastic
ally contributed prizes from their
Four Miles Against Time.
The special feature of the day will
be the buzz-wagon race between Dr
McCoy's devil wagon and C. C.
Griggs' stern-wheel Pullman. The
machines will get away on flying
starts and may make some flyins
stops. The bets are pretty even ye*,
although if there should be any oc
casion to "line-up" over any rocky
places the swift-water craft will be
the favorite. But the engines on the
devil wagon may be "hypo-dermick
ed," so the race between the heavy
weights is bound to be a classy even*.
Sam Campbell will start all the
races from the ground, except the
autos. He will start them from the
top of a tree. Bill Reed, Bill Smith
and Bill Stacy will be the judges.
All entries are for half miles, and
ten Wenatchee horses are entered,
trot or pace.
