- The Kenuewick band is to have
new uniforms. This is made pos
sible by the generosity and public
spiritedness of our townsman, How-
Ward S. Aragu. The band has only
been in existence a few weeks, but
under the able direction of Prof.
Jauslin has made such rapid
itrides that it is a credit to the
town- Mr. Anion, who is some
thing* of a band man himself,

Ji new town labors, and to en

solid foundation one of the most
important of our public institu
tions, and has given the boys an
incentive to get dowu to work

Ten days ago the outlook was good
fqr a record-breaking prune-pro
ducing season. The trees were
bearing enough small prunes to
give basis for high hopes in this
direction. Suddenly a great change
has come. A very large percent

Indians May Lease Their Land.
At the instance of Representative
Jones, the secretary of the interior
has granted authority to the North
Yakima Indians in Washington to
lease their unimproved allotted lands :
amounting to about 1,500 acres, for !
a term ot ten years. Some time '
ago Representative Jones laid be
fore the secretary a letter from !
Mayor C. A Fletcher of North
Yakima, on behalf of a corporation
that desired to erect a beet sugar
factofy at North Yakima. The
company, however, will not build
unless it has assurance that it will
be furnished with a -tited quantity
of beets, and inquiry developes the
fact that there ii not sufficient land
tributary to North Yakima on
which beets can be grown unless it
is possible to use a part of the lu
diau lands on the reservation.
The Indians, or many of them,
are willing to lease their lands for
this purpose, and the department is
willing they should do so for a
stated period, at a rate not less than
$1 per acre per year. The depart
ment furiher insists that Indians
shall be given employment in the
beet fields, and will require leases
of each 80-acre tract to put up im
i provemeuls to the value of $500,
jbarn, fences, etc., such improve
ments to be of a permauent char
acter and become the property of
the Indian owner at the end of the
lease. It Is also stipulated that at
the end of the ten years at least ten
acres of each 80 shall be planted
in alfalfa for the benefit of the

Skagit county, brought a manda
mus proceeding against the auditor
of Skagit county to ccmpel the pay

ary. Thomas Smith, attorney for
the auditor, and J C. Waugh,
prosecuting attorney, took the
! ground that the law providing for
: the appointment of county fruit
j inspectors was unconstitutional,
since it came into direct conflict
with Section 5, Article 11, of the
constitution, which says that the
legislature must provide for the
election of county, township or pre
cinct officers required for the con
venience of the public.
The court held that the county
fruit inspector is a regular officer,
with duties and compensation pre
