statement In your paper. In the lixam

the property of It. li. Uourlay, of which
I am a shareholder, was raised from

as our valuation for the year 1911 was
11820, and the valuation was not raised
after the assessor assessjd it: and, fur
thermore, our taxes for the coining year
will be cut from $40-75 to $17.(1, and our

From Coiville News Bureau:
Adam \V. Arnold, who died at Ills
home in Colville, .Saturday evening,
October 2ii, was burn in Chatham, on
Lake Krie, in the I'rovince of Ontario,
Canada, April 2v, 1837, where he spent
the early part of his life with his par
ents upon the farm.
In ISM the stories of fi-bulous mines
of gold on the Paolflo slope excited the
young men of that community and for
two years they saved their meager
earnings and planned for a trip over
land to the great northwest. In the
early spring of 1868 they organized
their party of eleven young men, In
cluding Adam W. Arnold, L. W. Meyers,
ills two uncles, Jacob and Tobias Mey
ers; Frank MoConnell, George 13. Wan
naeott, Benjamin Wilder, George F. C.
MeCiea, Walter Frederick, a telegraph
Operator, and Reltmao Turner, a printer.
They traveled by steamer to the west
shores of Lake Superior, and thence
overland to Fort Gerry, and from there
by o.\ teams across the Uuckies through
the Kootenai Pass.
It was their intention originally to
reach the Caribou mine 3in northern
reach the western slope of the moun
tains Induced them to look for a milder
climate and they came to Colvllle,
reaching here in November. 1862. After
■pending the winter, the party scatter
ed, some going to Nevada and California,
others to Idaho and Montana, while
others remained here, making excur
sions occasionally into the mining
camps of British Columbia or other
parts of the northwest.
Major ltumwell, who had command of
Fort Colvllle, tried hard to secure their
enlistment In the regular army, but the
small pay failed to lure the minto the
Uniform of Uncle Sam.
Mr. Arnold was a gunsmith by trade
and possessed superior skill as an ar
tificer in brass and Iron. In his later
years he made a specialty of manufac
turing souvenirs In shape of hunting
knives, one of which was sent to Pres
ident Hoosevelt during his administra
tion, which the ex-president carried on
oil hunting trip into Africa.
When the steamer "Forty-nine"
foundered on the Marcus bar and Its
fitting* were bo frozen they had to be
brazed, all of the mechanics lnslste<l
that transportation would have to be
suspended until the necessary material
for repairs could he obtained from Port
land, which would require nearly two
months. Mr. Arnold looked over the
situation and decided th.it If they could
procure enough faucets from the
whisky barrels at the po.-.t he could use
them for repairing the machinery. His
request was promptly complied with
and the repairs were completed within
two weeks, and the steamer made ready
for its regular trips as soon as the river
was open for travel.
Mr. Arnold has always n ade his home
In Colville and has been v diligent and
painstaking worker at his trade. He
was a good citizen, and If he ever had
an enemy no one ever knew It.

to Mr. Roosevelt's political fortunes by

$100,000; that he never heard of any

and that this year neither he nor his
banking house had subscribed a dol
How It Was All Done.
To grasp these pregnant facts we
have only to recall a little modern his
tory. In VM4 Mr. Uoosevelt had his
bureau of corporations in working or
der. Mr. Cortelyou, lately in control
of it as secretary of commerce and la
bor, had been made chairman of the
national Republican committee. He
and Cornelius N. Bliss, treasurer, were
collecting money. As George It. Shel
don, Mr. Bliss' successor, says, 73V& per
cent of the funds received came from
the menaced corporation?.
If we do not find in these disclosures
a sufficient explanation of J. P. Morgan
& Co.'s "especial interest" in Mr.
Roosevelt's election, it is possible that
later events may reveal It.
Mr. Roosevelt never prosecuted J. P.
Morgan & Co.'s steel trust. He em
phatically stopped the proceedings in
stituted by other* against J. P. Morgan
& Co.'s harvester trust. When the
panic of 1907 was at its height he turn
ed the resources of the treasury over
to J. P. Morgan & Co., who used them
and made money and reputation by the
process. He met Gary and Frick, rep
resenting J. P. Morgan & Co.'s steel
trust, before breakfast one morning
and licensed them, in violation of law,
to absorb the Tennessee Coal and Iron
company, thus giving J. P. Morgan &
Co.'s steel trust a monopoly of high
grade Iron ore. He put Mr.' Bacon, a
.partner of J. P. Morgun &. Co., into the
state department and the diplomatic
service. He made Herbert Satterlee.
J. P. Morgan's son-in-law, assistant
secretary of the navy. In a letter to
Attorney General Bonaparte he testi
fied feelingly to the virtues of the
"Morgan interests which have been so
friendly to us." Never before was the
"public welfare" so cheaply protected.
Extent of Morgan Interests.
The "Morgan Interests" are not con
fined to J. E*. Morgan & Co. by any
means. The Morgan Interests compre
hend Itfe insurance companies, banks
and trust companies, railroads and
manufacturing enterprises. If the par
ent house increased Its regular Repub
lican contribution In 1904 because of
'its "especial Interest" we may easily
Imagine that the policy was widely
Imitated by affiliated corporations and
Individuals. Perhaps in this almost un
exampled favor by the Morgan Inter
ests we shall find an explanation of
the Roosevelt administration's hostility
to the Standard Oil Interests, which
have not always agreed with J. P.
Morgan & Co. concerning "the welfare
of the public."
It may be that the senate committee
will be able to throw more light on
this point, but It can hardly add any
thing to the scandal of the Morgan-
Roosevelt alliance. It was Mr. Roose
velt who opened up to J. P. Morgan
& Co. the possibilities of government
by big business. It was Mr. Roosevelt
who persuaded I. P. Morgan & Cc. to
plunge deeply ln lo politics. It was Mr.
Roosevelt who, consulting "the public
welfare," registered the decrees of J.
P. Morgan & Co. in the White House.
Not until Mr. Roosevelt had lost con
trol of the Republican machinery and
the law providing for publicity of cam
paign contributions had cone Into ef

A few days before, at St. Johnsbury, -.
Vt, Mr. Roosevelt had devoted a large
part of his speech to showing how
strongly he believed in the ballot for
women and how anxious he was for
them to get it. The question was not
an issue (here or likely to be, but It
was a vital issue in Ohio, to be settled
in four days, and yet not by spoken or
written word did he show to the people -
of Ohio that he knew of its existence.
Two days after the Progressive party
in Ohio permitted the defeat of this
amendment its state convention met.

In Mr. Roosevelt's second term the
suffragists determined to make every
possible eifort to secure an indorsement ,
from him. As Miss Susan B. Anthony's
most eloquent letters to him received
no answer, she went in person to see
him In November, 1905, just four
months before her death. With all her
powers of persuasion she pleaded with
him to recommend in his forthcoming
message some recognition of woman's \
claim to a voice in the government
Laying her hand on his arm, she looked
up into his face and said, "I beg of you
to be the emancipator of woman as
Lincoln was the emancipator of the
slave." He was not resembling Lin

present, and he remained totally un

Scant Courtesy at White House.
Shortly before he left the White
House several ollicers of the National
Suffrage association, realizing his great
influence on public opinion, made one
last effort to have him speak a favor
able word. He came into the outside
lobby of the executive office, required
them to state their business before the"
crowd waiting to see him and would
hardly give them a chance to speak,
but kept saying, "Go and get another
state." Fie shrugged his shoulders and
turned on his heel, and then they said,
"If we will get up a petition of a mil
lion names will that influence you?"
"No," he replied, "not one particle."
That was in 1009. The next year 04
letter from him was read at an anti
suffrage meeting In the Berkeley thea
ter, New York, in which he said: "I
am very tepid on woman suffrage."
The cause of woman's enfranchise
ment has no more implacable enemy
than the Outlook, and Mr. Roosevelt Is
on the editorial staff. Last February
he had In that magazine a ten column*
article entitled "Woman's Rights," but
the only right considered was that of
the suffrage. The article was such an
excellent exposition of the attitude ot
women who do not wish to vote that
the Anti-suffrage association ordered
copies for distribution. In this article
he said again, "In our western states
where the suffrage has been granted to
women I am unable to see that any .
great difference has been caused as
compared with neighboring states."
