WENATCHEE AS A SCENIC CEN
Wenatchee as a center for those
■who wish to spend a few weeks in
one of the most delight tut regions
in the world, has not received the
attention along these lines from a
publicity standpoint that it *a«»ld.
Now that this city can boast of its
excellent hotel accommodations, i* is
time right now to plan som» good
side trips for the tourist into the
Cascade mountains. A good s'ring
of burros ought to be provided for
a little mountain climbing, & nice
little trip could be made in one day,
or delightful trips could be laij out
which would occupy a week's time.
The past season, the mountaineers
of Seattle spent three weeks in the
Cascades. The coming season the
Mazamas of Portland will be here
and will climb one of the high peaks
in the Cascades.
The fact that Wenatchee is lo
cated right in the heart of a region
of great scenic beauty is one which
in the future ought to become one
of her greatest assets. The tourist
crop of California is one of its great
est each year. With p-oper publicity
Wenatchee will be filled every sea
sou with those who love to spend
a few weeks in the great out doors.

trict. This makes King county a
district in itself, gives the northwest
a district and, in a communication
to the Ledger, Mr. John A. Rea. of
Tacoma, would make a shoestring
district of the Columbia river coun
ties, which would extend all the way
from Pacific to Okanogan in the ex
treme northeast. Such a district
would never suit the southwest. We
might just as well have a congress
man at large. There is nothing in
ommon between such counties, say,
as Pacific and Okanogan. Even their
interest in the Columbia river, which
is supposed to bind them together.
is divided. The upriver counties want
an open river while the lower river
counties are more interested in the
improvement of the outer bar.
The Cascade mountains should be
established as the dividing line as
nearly as possible and Western
Washington given three congressmen
and Eastern Washington two, even
if such an arrangement does throw
suoh small counties as Pierce into
a district dominated by Tacoma and
Pierce county.--South Bend Jojrnai.
Okanogan county now has a real
live political issue. A plan has been
formed to divide the county, like
Gaul, into thre eparts: and there is
nothing like a county seat scrap to
make the good citizens love one an
other. —Bellingham Herald.
The city council of North Yakima
did a wise thing when they prohibit
ed billboards on the North Coast rail
road right of way. There is nothing
that so disfigures a city as billboards,
and Walla Walla seems to have more
than her share. Some provisions
ought to be made for controlling the
nuisance, also for prohibiting the
indiscriminate t-.cking up of posters
and hand bills on the main streets
of the city. It is high time that
Walla Walla was getting out of the
country; town class.—Walla Walla

Wenatchee and Waterville
Join in Asking for
Waterville, Wash., Dee. 31. —A pe
tition has been circulated by Fred
Thompson, secretary of the commer
cial club, and unanimously signed,
asking that a mail car and clerk be
put on the Washington ■& Great
Northern railway between Wenat
chee and Mansfield.
F. Z. Alexander, who has taken an
interest in the matter, has had the
same action taken by the Wenatchee
Commercial club. Under the pres
ent system it takes a full day to get
a letter from Waterville to Wither

WORK ON N. P. CUTOFF
Work Will Probably Start on Line
North of Beverly.
It Is believed that the Northern
Pacific will begin work in the spring
on their proposed cutoff from Ritz
ville through to Ellensburg. The
engineers for this line have laid off
a survey through the southern part
of Grant county which crosses the
Columbia about ten miles north of
Beverly. This would also open up
the country in the vicinity of Moses
A number of years ago the North
ern Pacific had a good survey
through the Crab creek country, but
the Milwaukee road succeeded in
rushing work through this section
and built their road on what is be
lieved to have been the Northern
Pacific's best location. The present
survey, however, is believed to be
a good one If completed, this cut
off would save many hours between
Seattle and Spokane.
E. A. Brown, of Trinidad, who is
in the city today, states that the
soundings have been made across the
Columbia river and that, the engin
eers drilled down to bed rock in the
river and on the hanks for the pur
pose of finding good bases for piers.
From all indications th/y found the
location north of Beverly to be very
