One Hundred and Fifty-five Educators
are in Wenatchee Attending
One hundred and fifty-five school
teachers from all over the county, of
which thirteen were from this city,
gathered in Wenatchee this week to
attend the 1912 Institute. From all
accounts this meeting of the teachers
promises to be the most interesting
and instructing institute ever held:
The session will continue thruout the
whole week and a good program has
Among the prominent educators that
will speak are: W. G. Hartranft of San
Francisco; Isabelle Austin, dean of
women, University of Washington;
Frank O. Kreager, department of ele
mentary science, Washington State Col
lege, and N. D. Showalter principal of
the state normal school, Cheney. Miss
Viletta Guthrie, county superintendent
of schools, will have active charge of
Arrangements have been made to
carry the teachers through the We
natchee valley in automobiles that a

Ship 74 Carloads of Apples in One Day
The biggest one day's shipment of
apples that has left the Wenatchee
valley so far this season was shipped
from Wenatchee last Saturday, when
seventy-four carloads left that city con
signed to middle western and eastern
points. Fifty-five carloads of the ap
ples were raised in the vicinity of We
natchee and nineteen carloads came
from Peshastin and the Upper Wenat
chee valley. Much talk is going
around this year to the effect that ap
ples are not bringing the price they
did in former years on account of the
unusually large crop this season, but
those who are familiar with the apple
situation claim that by February and
March there will be such a demand
for apples, and especially the Wenat
chee valley apples, that the price will
even exceed that paid in the past.
The Wenatchee Valley Fruit Growers'
Association are now sending most of
their apples to Chicago, St. Paul, Min
neapolis and other big eastern points,
where they will be stored until the de
mand for them several months from
now. Most of the big apple growers
thruout the valley have become mem
bers of the association and the old time
fruit buyers who have visited the val
ley for many years find little consola
tion now as the apples are being con
tracted and the grower receives the
greater share of his money for the ap
ples upon delivery instead of waiting
for returns from the consignee.

Yakima and Wenatchee Fruit Growers
Association May Combine
If the plans of those who are work
ing toward the consolidation of the
fruit growers association of this valley
and Yakima and possibly Hood river,
Oregon are accepted by the respective
districts and one big association formed
there is no question but what much
mutual good will result from such an
organization. While as yet no definite
plans have been made, those who are
fathering the movement claim that it
is only a question of a short time until
the various fruit districts of the state
The competion between the differ
ent fruit sections of the state is very
keen and if such an organization is
formed it would tend to a better under
standing and closer working relations

fruit growers thruout the state.

The world's championship baseball
series between New York and Boston
which is now in progress is arousing
much interest among local fans, and
from all accounts several hundred dol
lars has been wagered on the result.
The common opinion among those who
profess to know baseball is that Boston
will win out, although occasionally you
find some crank who contends that
New York has the best team. Up to
the present writing both teams have
won one game.

BUYS BOOZE FOR INDIANS
AND IS CAUGHT IN THE ACT
Tramp Will Probably Get A Term in
Prison for Selling Whiskey
Ed Johnson a new arrival in the city,
who give his residence as some place
in Ohio was arrested Monday morning
on the complaint of E. C. Booth for
giving booze to Harry Pell and his
wife, Indians from Cashmere. Mr.
Booth and Dr. Snyder, who witnessed
the affair, were looking out the window
of the doctor's office which fronts on
the alley back of Front street where
they saw the man talking to the Indians
and thinking that there was something
up watched the fellow.
After a short talk the man entered
the Opera Bar and came out with a
package, which later proved to be a
quart of alcohol and a pint of whiskey.
After seeing the package change hands
Mr. Booth notified the deputy sheriff,
who arrested Johnson a few minutes
later. The Indians at first claimed
that they had received no liquor from
the man but when Mr. Hamilton
started to make a search of their per
son the squaw produced the two bot
tles of booze from under her skirts
where she had concealed it and ad
mitted that the man under arrest was
the one who had given it to them for
which they had paid him 81.50.
Johnson had his hearing in Judge
Grant's court Tuesday morning and
was bound over to the Superior court.
"The Awakening of Helena Richie."
Probably the most renowned theat
rical company that has ever visited the
Wenatchee valley will be in Wenat
chee Friday night Oct. 18 for a one
nights performance, where they will
present the most famous play of recent
years "The Awakening of Helena
Richie." The attraction is now being
staged at the Metropolitan Theater in
Seattle one of the leading playhouses
of that city and is drawing crowded
houses every night. Miss Ro.selle
Knott plays the leading role and is
described as a very beautiful and tal
ented young actress. The last time
Miss Knot came to the coast she was
leading woman for Robert Mantell.
She is supported by Henry Hall a well
known actor in the theatrical world.
This play, like all problem plays or
sex dramas, has scenes that are tense,
scenes that are emotional, scenes that
are unpleasant to think over. The
central figure is a woman who has
sinned rather through a combination of
untoward circumstances than through
natural inclination. The four acts are
devoted to an exposition of her sinful
state, the coming of the pure influence
of a little child into her life and her
moral redemption through the agency
of this child.
The other play elements are the
prying neighbors who beat down Hel
ena Richie's moral alibi, the man in
the case, an excitable youth who loves
Helena to the point of attempted sui
cide and the venerable pastor whose
benediction is poured upon Helena's
repentant head as the curtain goes
Seats will be on sale Oct. 11, and

Supreme Court Decision on Local Option
According to a decision of the su
preme court, in signing a petition for a
local option election in a unit which
consists of but one precinct, the signer
need only give his postoffice address,
and is not required to add the precinct
in which he resides. The question
was raised with reference to a petition
for local option election at Winloclc,
Lewis county, and the supreme court
reversed tne decision of the lower
court, which ruled that the addition
of the precinct was necessary to the
validity of the petition. Accordingly
a local option election will be held in
that municipality on November 5.
