A lost occupation: Hunting the
Two mouldy relics of the dark ages:
The King and the Judge can do no
wrong. _ — _^__ - _ —
Great Jove, hit that Lycurgan ass
who last week introduced a bill in our
legislature to prevent school teachers
and college professors from discussing
socialism with their pupils, with one of
your twelve-inch thunderbolts.
Do the progressive members favor a
law coming before the Washington
legislature? Then it is the duty of
republicans to oppose it. Whether it
is a good or bad measure is not so
important as the fact that the progres
sives favor it. No good can come out
The latest addition to the Washing
ton family of country newspapers is the
Snohomish Advance, which made its
appearance last week and bids fair to
wax strong and great as country news
papers go. It is handsomely gotten
up, ably edited and its advertising
columns look "phat."
Under the caption of the Pacific
Building & Loan Co., speaking about
banks and trust companies that had
failed, the failure of a bank in Skagit
county the past summer was men
tioned, and it was stated that it was a
Mt. Vernon bank, when it should have
read a bank located at La Conner.
Legislator Craig must be related to
the old lady who tried to keep the
ocean within its bounds by the aid of a
broom. He would prevent the spread
of socialism with a law forbidding re
ference to it in our schools. The sim
ple mind of Mr. Craig would expect
result from a man made law declaring
that all men must be virtuous and hon
One of the really sensible and meri
torious things that the Washington legis
lature has undertaken is to give state
aid to the Quincy valley irrigation pro
ject. This project might be put
squarely on its feet without costing the
state one penny. There is neither
speculation or risk about the state
guaranteeing the interest on the hun
dred dollars it will require to make each
acre of fertile land perpetually produc-
; ve by putting water on it. It is as if
the state had one dollar in gold for
every dollar it guaranteed the payment
The Seattle Sun, Seattle's new daily,
found its way to The Echo office this
week. For a truth The Sun starts out
well if one may judge from advertising
patronage bestowed. There was not
only room, there was an insistent de
mand for a good, clean, fair and fear
less newspaper in Seattle, one that
would simply print the news. The
dollar mark was on every news story
printed in the Times and lust after
office warped the policy of the only
morning paper. Well, the people of
Seattle now have the solar and stellar
luminaries to make clear the path of
duty by day, but what of the night ?
Why not change the name of the
night-made paper to "The Moon," it
at least has the merit of brevity, which
is the other name for wit.
When the matter of putting the
judiciary of the state under the recall
came before the house last week the
representatives from Chelan county
voted against making the judiciary
subject to recall. All those who voted
against the proposition in the legisla
ture are headed for a fall. It is ex
ceedingly doubtful if one of those who
voted against the proposition can be
returned to the legislature. The more
the voters study and understand the
recall the more they favor it. The
people can not understand why mak
ing a man a judge changes his nature
and disposition. If he's all right be
fore being made a judge he's all right
afterwards, and the recall won't touch
him.' If he had dog hair in his nature
that never showed up until after he
was appointed judge the people ought
to have some way to get rid of him.
The recall is not intended for good
judges and never touches them, and
it ought to hit the bad ones, and hit
The Commercial Club Revival
Our Commercial club waked up last
Monday evening from a twelve months
nap, yawned, stretched itself, and pro
ceeded to elect a new set of officers.
If only it will remain awake to the op
portunities for good, effective work in
the interest of Leavenworth during
this year no one will regret or com
plain at its Rip Van Winkle nap.
If ever in the history of the town
there was need for work this is the
year. If ever since its birth there was
a year when active, intelligent work
meant much to the town, this is the
year. 1913 marks the turning point
in the history of the town. It will
either be a thriving, prosperous hive of
industry or it will be a "Deserted Vil
lage." Towns are much like peisons.
It is within their power to make or marr
If we work together for the common
good all will benefit from the growth,
development and prosperity of the
town and country. If each locks him
self in a shell of selfishness and says,
■'Look out for yourself and the Devil
catch the hindmost," we will probably
make no headway, and to stand still is
to go backward. Good reader, would
you stop in a community where every
man had a grouch and his hand raised
against every other man. No, and
neither would I. The world is too
wide. There are too many good towns
where one can stop and shake the out
stretched hand of welcome.
That's not all. We should let our
light shine. We should let the world
know about the advantages and oppor
tunities that abound here —the Mecca
for homeseekers and investors.
The Echo stands ready to take its
full share in any movement that has
for its object the upbuilding and growth
of Leavenworth and the country sur
rounding and tributary to it.
We are now holding revival services
every evening. Interest is good, and
with a live song service and pure gos
pel preaching we are expecting great
results for the Kingdom. Attendance
at one service this week will convince
you that these services are more than
ordinary ones. Every man, woman
and child in town and country may get
enjoyment and help from them and
will be welcome any time. Sunday
school and Epworth League at usual

FRUIT GROWERS SHOULD KEEP
INFERIOR APPLES OEE MARKET
Apples Now Selling at Eastern Points at
Prices that Will Not Meet the Cost
From $2.75 to $3.50 a barrel,
which is equivalent to three boxes are
the prices being received for apples
thruout the east writes John A. Gel
latly from New York to Warren O.
Dow, secretary of the Wenatchee Com
Thousands of boxes of Fancy and C
grade apples from Oregon and Wash
ington, says Mr. Gellatly, are being
sold now in New York at prices that
will not meet the cost of picking,
packing and shipping the fruit. The
quality of apples shipped from this
section must be maintained if success
is hoped for against the cheaper east
ern fruit. Apple and pack will win
says Mr. Gellatly, but he urges the
most unremitting care in both features
and says that the eastern market de
sires from the Northwest large and
well colored apples. Only in this way
can the reputation of the Wenatchee
valley for growing the best fruit in the
world be maintained, by keeping in
ferior fruit off the market.
Mr. Gel'atly points out that many
varieties which local growers are rais
ing are grown by eastern fruit sections
and they come into competition, not
with our C grade, but with our fancy
apples. Among these he enumerates
New York's Greenings, Baldwins and
Kings; Delaware's Stayman Winesap
and Spies; Virginia's Winesaps and
Senators, and the Ben Davis and Jona
thans of Missouri and Ohio.
Drive* Oil a Terror
The chief executioner of death in
the winter and spring months is
pneumonia. Its advance agents are
colds and grip. In any attack by one
of these maladies no time should be
lost in taking the best medicine ob
tainable to drive it off. Countless
thousands have found this to be Dr.
King's New Discovery. "My husband
believes it has kept him from having
pneumonia three or four times," writes
Mrs. George W. Place, Rawsonville,
Vt., "and for coughs, colds and croup
we have never found its equal."
