CAPT. CHARLES JOHNSON

Lulls and Honorable
Cnpt. Charles Johnson, republican
nominee for representative from Che
lan county, was born in Suilivan coun
ty, New York in 1842. He received his I
i education in the common schools, and a j
i practical education in merchandising
I and tanning, (his people being exten
i she tanners and merchants).
At the outbreak of the civil war lie
enlisted as private in the 56th regiment
of New York infantry and served to
the end of the war. He was promoted
through the ditferent grades to captain
of his company, the last promotion oe
ing for gailuntry on the lielil of battle.
At the battle ot Honey Hill, S. C. Nov.
30tb, 1S(!4. he lost a leg while leading
his company, which retired him from
active service during the rest of the
war, and was mistered out with his
regiment in July, 1865. At the close
of the war he entered the mercantile
business in his native town, which he
followed for a number of jean,
He has been a life-long republican,
and has never once waivered from his
allegiance to that party. In 1874 he
was nominated for representative by
the republicans of his native county
and was beaten only by a few votes in
a strong democratic county. In 1880
he removed to Wayne, Nebraska, and
engaged in the mercantile business
there. In 1886 he was elected auditor
and clerk of the county, served one
term and declined a renominalion, hav
ing decided to emigrate to Washington.
In 1888 he settled on Lake Chelan then
in Okanogan county, and was elected
one of the first commissioners of that
new county. Upon arriving in Wash
ington he engaged in fruit raising and
mining, and with patience and perse
verance and the expenditure of many
thousands of dollar?, be has developed
one of the best mining properties in
eastern Washington. He is a pioneer
of Chelan county and has always been
prominent in the upbuilding of the
Lake Chelan country, and is thorough
ly acquainted with the county and its

With a term in the state peniten

Strademler and George Clay pool were
laken to Waterville Tuesday morning
where they will be called to answer a
charge of cattle stealing. HenryStrad
emier has been living for some time on
the Fred Patterson place near Water
ville. For the past month he hss had
some stock to sell.
On Friday he phoned to Wenatchee
to Chas. Harlin asking him to come up
the next day as be had some cattle for
bale. Mr. Harlin was unable to leave
<m that day but on beinsr in'ormed that
he had tho stock at the heail of the can
yon near Waterville and was without
feed for them Mr. Harlin agreed to go
uu Sunday and take a look at them.
Accompanied by his brother,D. G. Har

Claypool. and made a deal for the
stock. They arrived at the upper ferry
at it p. m. Suuday. Monday morning
they drove them to Wenatchee.
The fact that in the drove of twenty
five head sixteen brands were repre

received notice of stock being missed
accordingly notilied F. S. Steiner of
| Waterville, secretary and treasurer of
the Eastern Washington Protective As
sociation. Warrants for the arrest of
the men were issued and they were tak
en in charge by Sheriff Keller.
The cattle which are now in Hnrlin's
yards have been found to be from dif
ferent parts of the state, pome from
Ephrata, <(irae from Moses Coulee and
some from the vicinity of Waterville.
There is a reward of $300 offered by
the protective association for informa
tion leading to the arrest and convic
tion of anyone s-tealinjt stock from any
member of the association. This re
ward will be claimed by Mr. Harlin.—

In every national campaign far forty
years past the republican party has
stood upon its recorJs of thing-, done, of
laws enacted, of policies established un
der which the country has progressed
and prospered. The record of the dem
ocratic party made in two administra
tions was so full of disaster, of commer
cial shipwreck, of industrial paralysis
and business failures that its chief bus
iness in recent years has been to get as
far away from its record as possible.
Mr. Parker, Democratic nominee for
President, has never journeyed west of
Buffalo, N. Y. What does lie know of
the great west, its people,their achieve
ments, their possibilities, their needs?
How can he reconcile the demands of
the different sections, and decide great

the whole country? Of limited experi

Some superextra cultured persons
down east have been much shocked at
the loose and careless way in which the
president has been Ufing the English
language in some of his speeches. In

he began 13 unlucky sentences with the
word "now," and he used the phrase
"have got"' 11 times. Worse than that,

between Waterville and Bridgeport, R.

judge of the supeticr court, is not the
saintly creature a ?mall boterieof popu
listic republicans in tliis town picture
him: "Early this spring on learning
positively that about 18 or 20 business
men of Waterville were holding home
steads upon which they had not com
plied with the laws of the ccuntry,l de
cided to contest odo of the claims and
finally picked the quarter section held
by W. H. Fraser, a blacksmith in Wat
erville. Fraser filed on the homestead
April G, 1900, but he never lived on the
place until after April 9 of this year,
the date upon which I instituted my
content. For four long years Fraser
held the claim, yet he did not pretend
to comply with any of the regulations
provided by by the U. S. land laws. He
was holding the quarter tecUOO as a
speculation and continued his residence
in Waterville without interruption. I
wanted a homestead and was eager to
comply with every law in order to ob
tain one. My only alternative was to
contest oh'e of the elctms held by the

asked him if he would lake a contest
case. He said he would. I told him I
wanted to contest a piece of land. He
said be "wanted to kn'nv who !t wus
against —that it might be one 6f his
clients. I told him it was Henry Frftser.
He replied he did not consider Frriser
one of his clients and would take thfv
, case. He al6O wanted to know what I
could prove. I told him what I could
substantiate: there were two witnesses
I had not yet seen that I was satisfied

'■I then asked Steiner what he would
charge for his services and he said $5(1.
I lolil him the fee was nil right and to
go ahead. Then he urged me to notify
the two witnesses I had not yet seen
and he would proceed to get the papers
out. I went out into the country about
■•20 miles to interrogate the two wit
nesses referred to and came back to
town the next day. I immediately called
upon Steiner and informed him that
everything was already and that we
could easily make our case good. To
my j^reat surprise Mr. Steiner slated
he had so much work to do that he
could not possibly take the time to
bother with my case. He said in con
clusion: 'I will tell you this much,
Bartholomew, you have a good case.'
"Being unable to secure the services
of any lawyer in Waterville to plead
my cause I went to Wenatchee anil
employed an attorney and when my
contest case dually came up for a hear
ing before the U. S. land office in Wat
erville in May of this year Tt S. Stein

in the country looking up my witnesses
the 18 or 20 Waterville people who
were illegally ho.ding homesteads for
speculative purposes,on being informed

tention to content Henry Fraser's home

is called the WaterviUe Homesteader's
