Alice M M Bowron vs John E I3ow
ron. suit for absolute divorce.
On Monday morning tost a pe
tition was presented to Gover
cior Mcßride numerously signed
by people living in Seattle and
Judge Bell and Assistant Prose
cuting Attorney Craven, who as
sisted in convicting, requesting
jfche Governor to commute the
sentence of hanging against
John Reynolds to life imprison
ment. The case is rather pecu
liar one. Some time since Rey
nolds was convicted in the Su
preme' Court of King County of
killing a man. The evidence
how,ever showed that Reynolds
intended to kill another man who
had threatened Ijis life, and had
said he would iilJ Reynolds on
eight. Reynolds 3/ad previously
borne a good character. If the
governor does not interfere Rey
nolds will be hung today inside
the walls of the penitentiary,
which will be the first to take
place under the new law.
Mrs. Tom Coleman went to Spokane
last Sunday night in answer to a tele
gram advising her that her mother w.as

who visited here last fall.
George Farnsworth, agent and ad
juster for the Equitable Mutual Fire

several days in our town the lir^t of
this week adjusting the loss of his com

SPOKANE FOR M'BRIDE
So Say the Spokane Papers of
The following is taken from the
Spokesman * fteview of last Tuesday,
and may or may not reflect the senti;
ment of the voters of that bailiwick:
That the solid delegation from Spo
kane county to the republican state con
vention will be instructed for the re
nomination of Governor HenryMcßride
ie the linn opinion of a large majority
of the shrewd local politicians of the.
party. Since the tirst of the year a
strong sentiment for Indorsing Gover
nor Mcßride for roDomination has been
crystalizing among local politicians.and
the haste with which interests hitherto
classed as anti Mcßride have declared
themselves neutral in the governorship
light has added much to the belief that
before the county meets there will be a
regular Mcßride stampede in this coun
It would not be exactly in accordance
with facts to say that sentiment for the;
governor's nomination has increased in
the past few weeks. A more apt state
raent is that during the past few weeks
politicians of thocounty Jiave had made
manifest to them the abiding sentiment
of tho rank and lile in favor of the yuv
ernor, and that as the days go by they
are more and more inclined to pay heed
Taki'n to a Higher Court.

Eighth Judicial district of lowa years

In Cedar county the qiM of Dillon a
gninst Craudall was .called on an ap
peal from thedecisionof a justice of the
peace. A member of the bar arose and
said he would suggest to the court the
decease of the appellee. Another law
yer arose and suggested the death of the
apellant. The Judge remarked that the
clerk could pass the case, as it would
probably be tried by another tribunal.
After court adjourned the following
lines were found on a sheet of legal cap
on the judge's desk;

Another nisgruiitled One
A short time since Lew Wilinot ad
dressed an open letter to Senator Fos
ter in which he predicted an awful po
litical calamity if Roosevelt was defeat
ed for the nomination. Now comes one
H. E. Beach, from Stevens county, and
tells what he will do if Mcßride is de
feated in the republican nomination for
governor. The letter is dated at Scotia
and is addressed to the Spokesinan-Ue
view of the sixth instant. It reads :is
"Please allow me space in your paper
to hurrah as loud as I can to Low Wil
mot, for he has hit the nail squarely on
the head. While lam an old line lie
publican, having cast my maiden vote
for good old Abe in 1800,1 am still what
is termed an independent voter, and
I look upon Governor Mcßride as a
worthy mate to ow daring president,
Teeodore Roosevelt. And if this miser
"aVlle political clique can manage to turn
down Governor Mcßride, we, the inde
pendent voters, will bury them so deep
in their political gravps that even the
day of resurrection will not raise them
"Now, it ought to be patent to every
one that the hearts of the voters of the
state are set on Mr. Mcßride for our
next governor, and, if the politicians
turn him down, the democrats will go
in with a whoop, and I, old line republi
can as I am, will take the stump in
their behalf. And now, you political
tricksters, take warning. Beware of
the handwriting on the wall!"
