More of Wilson's Devious Methods.
Kufua 11. Wilson, I'oindexter's sena
torial manager (co called) in Eastern
Washington, ran against a snag and
punctured a bole in his nautical bottom
(metaphorically speaking) when he wrote
a certain letter to Postmaster Henry of
I'roeser nsking for a conference. This
was along the lines of Wilson's doings in
regard to posroffiepsand post masterships
at Palouse, Wenatchpe and other places
It was written when Wilson thought his
chief could deliver the goods, but the
two dromios have become acquainted
with a few facts since then. This to
Postmaster Henry, bearing date Spo
kane. April 7, makes interesting reading:
"We have opened state headquarters
of the Progressive Republican L°ague.
and are about to begin an aggressive
campaign to secure the nomination o<
Judge Poindexter to the senatorship.
Knowing that you are actively and per
sonally interested in this matter, I would
like vrry much to have a talk with you
at the earliest moment convenient to
you. Can you arrange to come to Spo
kane within the next two or three days
and have a conference?"
Mr. Henry's repl? was quite lengthy
and left no doubt as to his brand of
republicanism. It is needless to say that
the Spokesman Review did not print it
or refer to it in the least particular. A
few excerpts from Mr. Henry's reply is
given, which must suffice at this time :
" 1 note your assumption that I am
actively and personally interested in thin
matter, together with your expressed
wish to have a talk with me at the earli
est convenient moment, and your request
that I come to Spokane within the next
two or three days for a conference.
"In view of the fact that Congressman
Poindexter and you, his friend, must
sooner or later learn the facts as to my
attitude toward his candidacy for the
senate, I think it well enough at tbi*
time, and on this occasion you have
made for me, to state to you in plain
terms that I nhall not cast my vote for
Judge Poindexter at the primary election
"I have many reasons which are to me
entirely sufficient to justify me in this
position, the chief among which may be
inferred from this: That if I wanted to
help send a democrat to the United
States senate I should enroll under the
banner of democracy.
"Judge Poindexter has said that he is
a republican, but so far as I have been
able to learn, both his conduct and his
company constitute emphatic denial of
" In view of the fact that 1 am post
master here, and presumably a candidate
for reappointment, yoar assumption
that I am personally interested in this
matter is not, an unnatural mistake. On
this point I have to say that if I become
a candidate for reappointment it will be
on my record as an official made during
this term. *•••••*
" If Judge Poindexter is entitled to be
called a republican, why has he not at
tended the caucuses of that party since
"If it has been his desire to bring
about the 'reforms' he champions
through putting 'his own' party right
on these questions, why has he held aloof
from the very places where, it would be
naturally presumed, the party would
thrash out its differences of opinion
among its own members and thereby be
able to act as a party together."
It is needless to state that Postmaster
Henry didn't go to Spokane at the
behest of Wilson.
The republican state central commit
tee, at its meeting in Seattle last week,
named August 3 as the date for holding
the next state convention and Tacoma
bs tbe place of meetiDg. Whitman
county will be entitled to 24 dtlegates.
President Taft was indorsed, and the
Poindexter element received no encour
agement from tbe hands of the commit
tee, they having but two votes. The
reason that August was selected as the
date for holding tbe convention was that I
congress will probably not adjourn bt- !
fore July 20, which led east side con;-'
inittteiuen to waive their objections to
an August convention.
Last Saturday wae horse show day in
Colfex, and Colfax has not eeen such
throngs nor witnessed eucb enthusiasm
for a long time. And these who came
caw the beet in horse flesh to be found
on the Pacific coast. The saying that
the horse is "man's best friend" is as
true now ac ever, and he will continue
for ail time to be "man's beet friend."
Interesting figures h-*ve been made
public by the state tax commission on
taxation in the state of Washington. It
ha* been found thnt the three counties of
Pierce, King and Spokane actually pay
more taxes than all the rest of the state
combined. The taxes levied in those
three counties total 112,865,297 24,
while the rest of the state pays taxes
in the sum of $12 128,579 09. These
taxes are for all purposes, state, county,
municipal, school and roads.
On May 18 members of the Interna
tional Typographical Uuion will vote for
officers for another year. The system
adopte 1 is uuique and thoroughly repre
sentative. Every member ia good stand
ing has a vote, the voting being done
through tbe local unions. In member
ship the Internationa! has increased
from 33,000 members in 1900 to 51,000
The Frazier apple tree at Dixie, Walla
Walla county, thought to be the cham
pion of the Northwest, has been meas
ured by a committee of Walla Walla
business men. Tbe trunk is seven feet in
circumference, the crown 57 feet in diam
eter and the height is 43 feet. Laet
year it yielded 126 boxes. The tree
grew from a seedling.
A Political Judas Iscariot.
In a speech recently delivered in New
York the democratic eong re-sman from
the Third district of this state, elected
to that office by republican votes, de
clared his hostility to the Taft adminis
tration. After such a declaration no
man claiming to be a republican can
nupport this traitor to the party that
placed him in congress. It is simple
hypocrisy to be a republican and train
with such a political Judas. If there
was anything manly about this seeker
after senatorial honors be would remove
the mask and come out for office on the
democratic ticket —Oroville Gazette.
To Remove Glass Stoppers.
CJlass stoppers which are stuck in
bottles may Tie quickly removed by
holding the bottle at a slant of about
forty-five decrees and applyinc a burn
ing match to the neck of the bottle
around where the stopper seems the
tiffhtest and turning the bottle while
the match is burning so the plass will
be heated evenly all around. This will
pause the neck of the bottle to expand
before the stopper does, nnd when the
flame has well burned out drop the
match and quickly cive the stopper a
little twist and it will come out read

BIG FIRE INSURANCE CO.
Well and Favorably Known Amongst

Grain growers will be especially inter
ested in the fine showing made in 1909
by the Northwestern Mutual Fire Asso
ciation of Seattle.
Reports of the various fire insurance
companies operating in Washington,
tiled with the state insurance department
at Olvmpia, shows that the volume of
business transacted by this big Seattle
company in Washington in 1909, was
only equalled by one other company.
The Northwestern is the company
which has revolutionized the system of
insuring the crop of growing grain. It is
well and favorably known to the farmers
of Eastern Washington and Northern
Idaho as the company which gave them
such satisfactory service and which in
the last few years has paid a large Dum
ber of losses on growing grain. Its
settlements have always been prompt
The company now has large cash re
sources to guarantee its contracts, its
last quarterly report showing reinsurance
reserve and cash surplus of more than
five times the amount needed to pay
losses to expiration on all polioies in
This shows 33 per cent more than the
ten largest stock companies in the United
States, based on their average loss ratio
The Northwestern issues a New York
Standard form of policy which is abso
lutely non assessable, and no better
indemnity against loss by 6re can be
had than a policy in this strong, well
known and conservative company.
