APPLE SHO* APPROACHES.
Mary Important Questions to Be Dis
cussed at Spokane Meet. ,
Spokane— "The four national apple
shows given thus far, have aided ma
terially in placing northwest apples on
the map; now the j chief function is to
solve the big problems confronting the
industry^" said H. * C. Sampson, vice
president and general manager of the
Fifth National Apple show, which
will be held in Spokane, November 11
to 17 incluseive. *
"Great stress will be laid on the
conference to be held during the show,
in which growers, bankers, traffic offi
cials and business men will partici
pate," added Mr. Sampson. "Experts
in these lines will discuss these sub
jects: Choice of site, air drainage,
water drainage, selection of stock,
cultivation, pruning, spraying, pick
ing, packing, financing, disposition |of
by-products, transportation, and mar
keting or distributing. Of these
subjects, I consider the disposition of
by-products and marketing the most
pressing questions demanding our at
tention.
"We want all the growers' unions
and organizations to send representa
tives to this conference, and we need
all the growers with us in this move
ment. When it is'suggrested that in a
few years the Pacific Northwest will
be shipping more carloads of ' apples,
which are perishable, than of wheat,
the question of distribution becomes
of vital importance.
"It is the intention of the board of
governors and board of trustees to
make the National . apple show of the
greatest possible service to growers,
shippers, unions, common carriers, in
fact, to all classes connected with the
industry. If we can this year throw
light on the vital problems, we will
feel amply repaid for the large outlay
of time and money. From talks I
have had in a number of districts of
the Pacific Northwest, I feel sure we
can go a long way toward clarifying
the apple situation.
INDIANS REAL FARMERS.
Sioux Make Remarkable Display at
First Native Exhibit
Poplar, Mont.—Hocesan, an Assin
niboine, was awarded the highest hon
ors as an Indian agriculturist at the
Fort Peck reservation fair, the first
Indian county fair ever held in the
United States, with 33 varieties of
(Trains and vegetables exhibited.
He carried off the Louis .W. Hill sil
ver cup for the best individual land
products shown. Among the products
he raised is a cabbage weighing 52
pounds, one of the largest ever raised
in the world, agricultural experts de
clare. Hocesan's farm is near Fra
ser, Mont. He had, as competitors,
Indian farmers representing a dozen
tribes of the Sioux nation. The fair
is being watched with great interest
by United States government agricul
tural experts, in view of the fact that
next year 1,800,000 acres of land in
the reservation will be thrown open
to white settlers. The Indians who
have taken to farming already have
made a start which would make any
white farmer envious in a new country.
The amazing thing about their success
is that they did litte or no cultivating.
"It must be the soil," said Hoce
san, "for all I did was to plant the
seeds."
This statement on the part of the
prize winner made the judge smile.
A feature of the sport programme in
connection with the fair was the vic
tory of the Fort Peck football team
over the Glacier Park eleven, 3 to 0.
This gridiron contest between the
Sioux and Piegan Indian nations was
of the brand of which Yale and Har
vard would be proud.

Prosecution Given Free Hand.
Indianapolis— Not only evidence of
the alleged illegal interstate shipment
of dynamite and nitro-glycerine, but
also evidence as to - what was done
with the explosives, will be admitted
at the trial of the 46 men accused of
complicity in the "dynamiting plots."
Federal Judge Anderson has so
ruled. His decision, thus opening to
the prosecution the right to show a
motive by going, into „>. the details of
many explosions, including that which
wrecked the Los Angeles Times build
ing, October 1, 1910, followed the im
paneling of a jury and a severe ar
raignment of the defendants in the
opening statements by District Attor
ney Miller. ;
. Consul Seizes Steamship.
New York—The steamship Mace
donia, scheduled to sail for Piraeus
with 2000 passengers aboard, was com
mandeered, just before sailing time,
by the Greek consul-general at this
port. All passengers, with their bag
gage, were hurriedly sent ashore and
the vessel prepared to sail at once for
Philadelphia to take on a cargo of : am
munition. The Macedonia will return
to New York, the consul-general said,
for the reservist of Greece and the
Balkan state who plan to sail on her
to take part in the threatened war.
France Would Prevenf War. ,
Paris— France and Russia are in
complete accord on all questions relat
ing to the Balkan situation, but the
programme they are to follow has not
been divulged. The delicate conditon
created by the presence of nearly 1,
--000,000 armed men face to face on the
frontier is recognized here and the
government lis considering I the best
means of preventing a conflict. Re
fusals of financiers to loan the Balkan
states is a factor in favor of peace. ,

place south of Harmanli, a Bulgarian
town 37 miles north of Adrianople, ac
cording to a Constantinople; dispatch.
INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AND
PROGRESS OF OUR HOME STATEj
SHIP 40 CARS APPLES.
Eastern Markets Buy 36 Carloads —
Four Consigned to Coast
Wenatchee —Forty carloads of ap
ples were hauled out of this city last
evening by the Great Northern, 36 go
ing to Eastern points and four to the
Coast. This makes the total number
of carloads of fruit shipped this sea-'
son out of this city more than 100 and
the harvest of the apple crop has just
commenced. Fully 2500 carloads re
main to be shipped.
The great increase in the crop has
disclosed another problem to be solved
by the fruitgrowers in the Wenatchee
valley within the next two or three
years—the scarcity of labor. Men,
women and children are in demand to
aid in marketing the crop. Many of
the big orchard owners have had to re
sort to inexperienced help in packing
fruit. Women average in the packing
sheds from $3 to $4.50 a day, while
experienced men packers average $5
and $6 a day, and boys in their teens
are making good wages and yet the
demand is greater than the supply. In
another three years the crop of the
valley will be doubled.
Clarence Smith, a local grower, has
just harvested bis crop of Spitzen
bergs from two acres, the sale of
which netted him $1,500 an acre.
The apples are now on their way to
New York, having been purchased by
a commission firm of that city.
Reports on shipments of peaches to
London, the first attempt to export
soft fruit from the Wenatchee valley,
show that the fruit was found in ex
cellent condition and a ready market
was found in London.
FRUIT ROTS IN ORCHARDS.
Hundred Carloads of Apples Await
Buyers Near Farmington.
Farmington—What to do with the
immense fruit crop is worrying orch
ard owners of this section. It is esti
mated there are 100 carloads of excel
lent apples in the neighborhood of
Farmington, yet there seems to be no
demand. Only one buyer is here.
The early apples are being sold to the
cider mill at $5 a ton and ground into
cider and vinegar, because there is no
market for them. There are several
carloads of prunes within a few miles
of Farmington, yet no one wants
them. They are being fed to hog 9
and many owners of orchards which
have many early fall apples are feed
ing them rather than go to the ex
pense of gathering them and hauling
them to town to be sold for £ cent a
pound.
MANSFIELD WHEAT 70 CENTS.
All Grain House Crews Are Working
Day and Night.
Mansfield—Wheat reached the 70
--cent mark on the Mansfield branch
of the Great Northern this week and
the result was that all grain house
crews were obliged to work day and
night.
All records for the Farmers' union
grain houses were broken at Withrow,
a station 10 miles west of Mansfield,
Wednesday, when 2600 sacks of wheat
were taken in at that point.
The splendid yield from the in
creased acreage of winter wheat
planted la«t fall has established the
fact that this is essentially a winter
wheat country and a much larger
acreage has already been sown.
An early estimate of the crop placed
the shipments from Mansfield this
year at 1,000,000 bushels, but from
present indications considerably over
this amount will go.
Farmington Oats Heavy.
Farmington—Harvest is nearly over
here. Two threshing machines have
pulled in for the winter and several
others will finish the season's run
within the next few days. There is
some grain to be cut and several bind
ers are running in late oats. Mike
Torpey, whose ranch is one mile
northeast of town, is cutting a fine
field of oats. South of town a num
ber of fields of oats remain to be cut
and east of here, across the line in
Idaho, oats are standing in the fields.
Late oats are averaging 75 bushels.
Make Vinegar at Farmington.
Farmington—H. Latter has arrived
from Seattle to open the vinegar, fac
tory at this place. This is Mr. Lat
ter's third year in the business here.
He has contracted with a Seattle firm
to furnish 2000 barrels, which means
a 90-day run, to require between 900
and 1000 tons of apples. Thirty cars
will be necessary to deliver the pro
duct. A motor is being installed and
other improvements made.
Jumbo Potatoes at Davenport
Davenport — The Lincoln county
state bank has on display three pota
toes grown on the ranch of J. W. Fry,
nine miles southeast of Davenport.
The largest one weighs three and
one-half pounds, is 12 inches long and
12 inches in circumference. It is of
the Early Rose variety. The next
largest one weighs two and one-half
pounds, and the other 28 ounces.
Thornton Horses to Chicago,
Thornton—D. L. Dutton, of Ros
alia, has finished buying up a car of
heavy draft horses. Some of the
teams brought as high as $600. The
horses were shipped to Chicago. The
local hog and cattle buyers have ship
ped several carloads of hogs to the
Spokane market The price paid
ranged, from 8 to 10 cents.,
APPLE VALLfcY PROSPEROUS.
Towns Make Substantial Gains— Ev-
erybody Busy.
Wenatchee —Never in the history of
this city has there been greater pros
perity than this year. Every line of
industry in the city is rushed and the
demand for labor exceeds the supply.
Every available carpenter in the city
is employed and building tradesmen of
all kinds are kept working, in many
instances 10 to 12 hours a day and
Sundays. Houses to rent in this city
are at a premium even though the con
struction of new homes is being kept
up constantly. Estimates by city
officials claim the population of the
city has been increased about 1500
during the last two years.
One hundred and fifty carpenters in
the city |have been employed during
the summer. Every bricklayer in the
city and in the valley has had employ
ment all summer.
The construction of eight new 50
--foot store fronts on the business
street of the city has allowed the mer
chants to expand. More than $30,000
is now being spent in the removal into
larger quarters by firms in the city,
while more than $100,000 is being
spent in the increase of stocks of mer
chandise.
Cashmere, though classed as having
600 people, has two department stores,
one of which employs 20 clerks aud
the other 18. Every line of business
in the town is rushed. The streets
have been lined with concrete side
walks and the largest grange hall in
the state has just been completed at a
cost of approximately $30,000.
At Leavenwortb, the big Lamb
Davis sawmill is being run night and
day, with a payroll of $30,000 a
month, and the returns from the
orchards in that vicinity are bringing
large sums. In that city the business
street is now being paved and a new
$44,000 water system is being started,
as well as the improvement of some of
the residence streets.
Chelan has prospered this year as
never before. Besides the construc
tion of the new Wenatchee-Oroville
line going on in that vicinity, over
$1,000,000 is now being spent in im
provements and construction of a large
irrigation proposition in the Lake
Chelan country.

APPLE HARVEST ON.
Wa"a Walla Crop Is Estimated at
800 Carloads.
Walla Walla — The winter apple
harvest will start in the Walla Walla
valley this week and will be fully un
der way in ten days. The year's crop
will total 800 cars, the crop being the
best in quality and quantity ever
known in the valley.
The weather conditions this month
have been ideal, the warm days and
cool nights putting an unusually fine
color on the fruit. There was little
blight this year and the fruit is free
from blemish and worms. Several
hundred pickers and packers will be
needed. The pickers get $2 a day,
and the packers being able to make
$4 to $6 a day
Prospects are that apples will not
bring as good a price as last season
when fruit was scarce. Some of the
Milton fruit growers' crop has been
contracted. In the near future the
Union will put three additional men on
the road to dispose of the winter crop.
The Milton Union has decided to place
no apples in cold storage, and as a re
sult the crop will move from the val
ley as rapidly as it is sold. It is ex
pected that the crop will be com
pletely harvested and shipped by the
middle of November.
In the upper valley the crop is ex
pected to be the largest ever harvest
ed.
School Rooms for Public.
Spokane — Spokane public schools
will be available for public meetings
of all kinds, advocates of the "social
center" idea having won their long
campaign before the board of educa
tion. The board has adopted a rec
ommendation of a special committee
of its members providing for the use
of any room suitable for a public
meeting in any of the ?6 Spokane
ward school buildings. Meetings of
an educational, social, religious or po
litical character are specified by the
board as permissible.
Sells Orchard Near Ephrata
Ephrata — Dr. W. M. McCoy of
Wenatchee, has sold 20 acres in one
year commercial apples to an eastern
man for $10,000 cash. The land is in
the Hiawatha valley, south of Eph
rata 15 miles. Work has begun on
the public highway running three
miles east of Trinidad. Eleven thous
ands dollars was set aside by the state
aid fund for this road.
Children Help in Orchards.
Granger — That the heavy crop
might be taken care of in the lower
valley it was necessary to postpone
the opening of school in Granger two
weeks, as the children were needed at
home. Help this year was scarce,
and many thousands of dollars' worth
of fruit has been saved by help of the
children during the two weeks.
Market Wheat at Reardan
Reardan —The threshing season in
this locality will be practically ended
this week, and wheat is beipg market
ed in large quantities. The elevators
are getting pretty well filled, and the
Reardan Union Grain company will be
compelled to pile a large amount of
the gram out of doors until can can
be provided. ,
STANDARD OIL NOT HURT.
Pursues Same Business Methods As
Before "Dissolution."
Chicago—The Standard Oil com
pany of Indiana still buys its crude oil
from the Prairie Oil & Gas company
arid the Ohio Oil company, and ships
its refined product in cars of. the Un
ion Tank line, both former subsidiary
corporations of the Standard Oil com
pany of New Jersey, the same as be
fore the separation of the corporations
by order of the United States Su
preme court. Such w ■ evidence
brought out at the hearing here in the
fight waged by H. Clay Pierce against
stockholders of the Standard Oil com
pany for control of the Waters-Pierce
Oil company.
The hearing will be resumed at New
York. John D. Archbold, vice presi
dent of the corporation, will be called
as a witness before the conclusion of
the hearing in New York.
It was brought out by witnesses
that the company since its separation
from the parent corporation has not
established any new stations in terri
tory outside the states previously cov
ered by the Indiana concern.
President Cowan, of the Standard
Oil company of Indiana, denied, how
ever, that John D. Archbold or other
directors of the old corporation have
had any connection with the manage
ment of the Indiana corporation since
the order of dissolution.
President Cowan explained that the
$29,000,000 stock dividend distributed
after the reorganization of the com
pany represented property owned by
the corporation, and was made after
the capital stock had been increased
from $1,000,000 to $30,000,000.
L. J. Drake, vice president of the
Standard Oil company of Indiana, said
he was in charge of the marketing of
the company's product, and that there
was no agreement or understanding in
regard to the prices or territory with
any of the former subsidiary corpora
tions of the Standard Oil company of
New Jersey.
AUTOIST HURLED TO DEATH
AT 90 MILES AN HOUR
Milwaukee—David Bruce-Brown, a
wealthy young New York sportsman,
was killed and his mechanician, Tony
Scudalari, was fatally injured on the
new Wauwatosa automobile road
course on the eve of the eighth run
ning of the Vanderbilt cup race.
Bruce-Brown was driving hia high
powered Fiat car at a 90-mile an
hour speed when a rear left tire blew
out. The heavy car swerved into a
ditch and a second later men and ma
chine were catapulted diagonally
across the road ard into a field with
great force. The men' were thrown
clear of the car, which was hurled
high in the air and then smashed into
a heap of wreckage.
Brown's skull was fractured, his
left leg broken and he suffered inter
nal injuries. Surgeons said that death
resulted directly from hemorrhage of
the brain. The top of Scudalari's
skull was crushed, bis right arm
broken and his body seriously torn.
PAROLED MAN IS BLAMED.
Adams, Not Webber, Originator of
Counterfeiting Plan, Is Belief.
Seattle —Secret service operatives,
taking note of the effort of George E.
Adams, the paroled assay office looter,
to represent himself as the dupe of
70-year-old John C. Webber in the
plot to manufacture counterfeit silver
dollars in a mint established by them
near Kent, said that all the evidence
they had gathered showed Adams as
the principal.
Adams, they said, supplied the old
man with money, obliged him to ac
count for evey penny and gave him
instructions about his conduct. The
secret service men say that Adams
and Webber apparently decided upon
the counterfeiting scheme while they
were both in prison, and Adams set
Webber to work as soon as the old
man was out of prison at the end of
his term.
Webber makes no denial of his part
in the plot and will plead guilty.
Italian Navy Will Help.
Rome—ltaly's program in the event
of war in the Balkans has not been
mapped out. It is known, however,
that the Italian navy will play a prom
inent role, indirectly aiding the Bal
kan coalition by preventing Turkey
from moving troops out of Asia Minor.
To this end the Italian fleet will keep
its full strength in the vicinity of the
Aegean sea. To move troops from
Asia Minor toward Macedonia by
land, it is said, probably would be be
yond the resources available to the
Turkish government.
Professor Lowe Dying.
Pasadena, Cal. —Prof. Thaddeus S.
C. Lowe, designer and builder of the
Mount Lowe railway, inventor of wa
ter gas and pioneer aeronaut, is near
death here at the home of his daugh
ter, Mrs. E. ,L. Wright. Professor
Lowe won fame as a balloonist during
the Civil war, being the first aeronaut
attached to the United States army.
Mount Lowe isuamed after him. Pro
fessor Lowe is 80 years old, and is in a
precarious condition.
Grand Jury Ignores Vice.
Chicago—Despite testimony by Miss
Virginia Brooks, the West Hammond
"Joan of Arc," the Cook county grand
jury adjourned without voting indict
ments as the result of its vice inves
tigations. It also refused to take
cognizance of the report that a mem
ber of the staff of the state's attorney
had attempted to prevent the vice in
vestigation.

The, fk victorv of 'the American
opened the way for the Nicaraen
government troops to assault the IZ
of Masaya, which they took from the
revolutionists, and its starving i n h ah
itants were relieved.
The revolutionist losses were heavy
while the government force lost lim
killed and 200 wounded.
General Zeledon, the rebel, escaped
but later was cornered and killed by a
troop of Federal cavalry.
One thousand American marines and
bluejackets, under Lieutenant Colonel
Charles G. Long, are moving on the
city of Leon, the remaining rebel
stronghold.
The American marines killed were-
Private Ralph Victor Bobbett, Neva
da, Mo ; Private Charles Hays Dur
ham, Junction City, Ky.; Private
Clarence Henry McGill, Portland,
Me ; Private Harry Pollard, Medway|
Mass.
Admiral Southerland in reporting the
battle to the Navy department, said:
"The department and the country
have every reason to be proud of the
officers, marines and bluejackets who
were engaged in this action."
Admiral Southerland's dispatches
made it plain that the defeat of the
rebels was complete. Zeledon, a Nic
araguan and formerly supporter of
Zelaya, fled toward the Costa Ricao
boundary for escape. A band of Fed
eral cavalrymen discovered him some
distance' from Masaya and gave fight.
When they defeated him and his fol
lowers he was found fatally wounded
and died later.
The shedding of American blood in
Central America is expected to bring 1
to a climax in congress the dispute 1
over the right of this government to
intervene in Nicaragua.
