The Efforts of The Echo Appreciated
The response to our request that
the people of Leavenworth help The
Echo in its effort to make known the
advantages of the upper Wenatchee
valley to the homeseeker and investor,
has been very gratifying. Since last
week's Echo was printed we have
booked the names of thirty people in
different portions of the United States
to whom The Echo will be mailed reg
ularly for the next three months, six
months and one year. We earnestly
hope the recipients will find somethiug
in the Echo that will stimulate interest
in this country to the extent that
they will pay us a visit and see for
themselves the matchless opportunities
that abound here for the man who
wants to better his condition. It will
be our special effort to make the paper
truthfully reflect conditions as they
prevail here, and to give reliable news
of interest to the homeseeker and
The Progressive Members Will be
There are some thirty-odd progres
sive members of the legislature and
somebody should keep tab on them.
They are under pledge to the peo
ple to do certain things and should
make every honorable effort to re
deem the pledge. It is quite likely
they will not be able to accom
plish much. 'They should form a
compact organization and vote right
on every proposition that comes up.

the republicans and democrats com
bine to legislate in the interest of the
bosses, as they doubtless will, turn the
light on and let the people see the
If they do this they will have gained
a substantial advantage. If any pro
gressive enters into a combine with
the old tricksters in order to get an
appropriation for a road thru his county,
or any other boodling scheme to get
public money for his neighborhood,
he should be spotted and held up to
scorn. If progressives expect to hold
the confidence of the voters they must
be able to come back home with clean
The legislature met in Olympia the
first of this week and according to
press dispatches the republicans and
democrats entered into an agreement
to leave the progressive members out
in the cold on committee appoint
ments and such other little advantages
as accrue to those in temporary con
trol. To use the language of the dis
patches, "to punish the progressives
as severely as possible." It is- the
same old element in control of both
old parties, believing in the same old
theories of convention rule, the sacred
ness of judges and the worship of the
political overlord. Progressives be
lieve in the rule of the people —a ma
jority of the people. They believe
that judges are just like other men.
Good and bad, and they believe when
a bad one gets on the bench there
should be a way to get rid of him.
Standpat republicans and democrats
believe the only way to get rid of a
bad judge is to wait for him to die.
It is charged on mighty good author
ity that last summer, about the time
the Aberdeen convention met, Gover
nor Hay promised certain people that
he would pardon Wappenstein immedi
ately after the November election.
Some newspapers are so close to the
deal that they have named the very
day on which the pardon was to be
issued. He is asked why he failed to
carry out his agreement. Probably be
cause the republican party failed to
carry out its part of the bargain. You
know the governor failed of reelection.
A party writes 1 from Oklahoma|that
he intends to come here and start a
bakery. He writes that he is a prac
tical bakery man. Knows all the
tricks of the trade and will give Leav
enworth a first class place. He says a
copy of The Echo fell into his hands
and from reading about the town be
came interested and after confirming
the opinion he formed of the place by
writing to parties here he decided
to close out his business there and lo
cate in Leavenworth. He had con
cluded there was no bakery here as
none was advertised. We wrote him
he was in error but that the town had
supported two until a short time ago
when one had to close out because
the house he occupied was torn down
and he could get no other location.
Nor Any Other Day
When a man is nearly frozen from a
ten mile drive on a cold, windy day
he will not stop to read a plank adver
tisement. But at home in his arm
chair, with his legs crossed before a
cheerful fire, he reads his local paper
and while he is feeling good and has
plenty of time, picks out the live busi
ness men of the town from the adver
tisements in the paper and makes up
his mind where he will trade on his
next trip to town. —Ex.
We are told that the reason Leav
enworth people are indifferent about
whether they go to hell or not is owing
to the fact that it is generally believed

Will make SteePat An Rarly Date
Mr. Rothert expects to return to
this city in about two weeks and will
devote the remainder of his time in
getting the plant in this city into
operation. While no definite time has
been set he expects to be turning
o&t the finished product at an early
date in the spring. On account of
the blockade in the mountains much
of his machinery is being held up on
the west side which may cause some
delay in getting started. The first ore
to be used will come from the west
side near Hamilton and Baring, Wash.
Men are now engaged in mining this
ore, and several carloads are expected
here in a few weeks.

Keep the hens bjisy if you would get
winter eggs. The hen that eats her
fill and goes back on the roost will
not lay many eggs during the winter.
The science of feeding has been work
ed out by many of the experiment sta
tions and colleges, but nowhere better
than at Cornell university. Prof Charles
A. Rogers, in an address to Connecti
cut poultrymen, explained their method
of feeding which has given some won
derfully good records, says Farm and
In the morning the hens are fed
2Jj to 3 pounds mixed grains for 109
Leghorns. At noon green feed or green
cut bone is given and the hoppers of
dry mash are opened. At night they
are fed seven to eight pounds of mixed
grain. Grit and oyster shell are kept
before them at all times. By giving
a light feed of grain in the morning in
deep litter the hens are kept hungry
and will scratch all day for it. They
should eat from one-third to one-half
as much dry mash as hard grain.
