20 Acres Orchard aod
Less than 2 miles south of Grand View we have control of a 20
--• ere combination ranch property which we can deliver without cash
There are G acres of 6 year old Spitz and Wlnesap apples, 8 acres
3 year old Spits and Wlnesap, 4 acres alfalfa, 2 acres plow land for
potatoes, melons and garden truck. The li year old trees began to bear
thlf year and are prime for a big yield next season. This place could
well be divided Into two 10-acre pieces, as there Is a 4-room house on
each tract, one a well built bungalow with water in house.
There Is a good 140 foot well, pump, engine and tank. Good barn,
root house, .milk house, chicken houses, etc. Also all kinds of tools
for orchard and farm use. Good stuck of hay for winter use. hay
derrick, rake, mower, wagon, harness, etc ■ ■ ■ .
Full water right goes with the place (one small payment on bal
ance not yet due.)
The location Is on main county road. IVi miles to live railroad
town of Grand View, ranches on every side, and one of the most de
sirable fruit and residence districts In Yaklma valley. The whole 20
acres Is fine soil, well drained and free from alkali.
The adjoining property of no better value Is held at $800 per acre.
We can deliver the above 20 acres for $12,600 and take $7,500 worth
of clear Tacoina property in exchange. Would consider tldelands,
building lots, acreage, or residence property unlncumbered.
This Is the making of a $20,000 place; everything goes. It's big
enough for combination stork, dairy and orchard ranch. All ready for
•ooupatlon and revenue from start.

THE TACOMA TIMES
BY ABE HURWITZ.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Jan. 18. —
Rep. A. M. Bryant, progressive,
of Pierce county, will probably
los« his seat as the result of a
contest brought by A. G. Mc-
Questen, republican, who, on tne
face of the returns was 23 votes
behind. While McQuesten, wlio
in tin' last legislature, voted as
a progressive repuoilcan, declares
he does nol want that seat unless
a recount, which was ordered by
the committee on elections and
privileges Friday afternoon,
shown him fairly elected, It will
not be up to McQueston at all.
Unless all signß of tne past
week mean nothing, Bryant's seat
Is as good as forfeited now.
Bryant failed to vote ror Taylor
and voted consistently for the
progressive program, bo that he
has invited no mercy at the hands
of the reactionary combine.
McQuesten's claims are based
on the allegation that votes which
showed a cross besides his name
were also erroneously counted for
Bryant by reason of a cross in
the progressive party circle.
Frank Sweet, who was elected
from the same district as a pro
gressive but has since deserted,
ran about 200 votes ahead of the
others, so that the contest Is lit
tle likely to affect his seat.
