Mayor Hansen Making Good on I. W.
W. Promise—Working on Plan lo
Cut out Man Between Farmer
and Square Deal.
Seattle, May 8, 1918— During his
campaign for Mayor of Seattle Ole
Hanson, who landed the job, told the
people that if he became the head of
the city government he would not
permit I. W. W. gatherings, but on
the contrary would close every hall
where they assembled and in the end
see that members of the order either
went to work, got out of the city or
joined the army. Hanson is making
good. Under his orders his chief of
police conducted a gigantic raid on the
main I. W. W. hall a few days ago
and arrested more than 200 of those
assembled. Many alleged slackers
were among the outfit and were turn
ed over to the Government for in
vestigation. Many of the I. W. W.
members, guilty of crims against the
government, will also be prosecuted.
Hanson declares that he will keep
after the organization until it ceases

The Washington State College has
called the attention of families in the
state to the fact that they can be of
real service to the government by
encouraging their children to plant
a few sugar beets during the present
season. The country is short on
sugar and an increased planting of
sugar beets will go a long way to
wards reducing that shortage. The
government will give the boys and
girls free seed and aid them in every
way possible to grow a successful

The Unions of Seattle changed their
minds at the last minute and did not
go out on a day's strike in sympathy
with the cause of Mooney, the con
victed California dynamiter. It was
called to their attention in many ways
that a strike, even for a day, at this
critical time in the country's history,
would be most unwise and would have
a tendency to injure organized labor
throughout the country. The real
reason for calling off the strike, how
ever, seemed to be that Mooney sent
a telegram to the local unions telling
them not to strike in sympathy with
him, as it would do his cause no real
There is" a general sentiment pre
vailing throughout the country that
farmers are destined to receive fairer
prices for their products in the future

HAVE YOUR MILK COWS EX
AMINED FOR TUBERCULOSIS.
Because an agent of the Depart
ment of Agriculture of the State of
Washington will be in Okanogan
county, where he has been called to
examine dairy cows, and because
herds should, in the interest of the
public health, be examined occasion
ally, I deem it opportune, writes
county agent Wm. Meikle, and sug
gests to our cow owners in the fol
lowing extract from a letter address
ed to The Echo, how they may have
their cows examined and get a certi
ficate of health or advice as to how
to eradicate thr disease:
"Any persons in Chelan county de
siring to have the assistance of the
State Veterinary Inspector in t .-.tine
their cows for tuberculosis will have
the opportunity to secure the services
of Dr. L. C. Pelton in the near future.
Persons wishing to have their cows
tested should call at or write to the
office of the County Agent and secure
blanks on which to make a ■
for the test. These will be placed
on file and upon the arrival of Dr.
Pelton he will be taken by the County
Agent to any place in the county
where his services are desired.
The testing of cows for tuberculo
sis is not compulsory and is done only
upon written application of the owner
of the animals to be tested. Where
herds are found to be free of the
disease health certificates are issued
thus giving additional value to the
herd. If the herd is not free of the
disease but contains one or two re
acters the test will remove these from
the herd and prevent th infection of
Persons wishing to ha»e their ani
mals tested should avail themselves
of this opportunity and send their ap
