The theft of f 1,140,000 from a Louis
ville, Kentucky, bank by a trusted em
ploye who was assistant secretary and
bookkeeper, is reported. This is the
most gigantic defalcation known, mak
ing other incidents of the kind look like
petty larceny by comparison. The
money was filched and lost in speculat
ing on Wall street and in the Chicago pit
in about five years.
And bo William Jennings Bryan, the
perennial candidate for the presidency,
has been repudiated as a leader by the
democrats of bis state and reduced to
the ranks. The fall occurred in the Ne
braska state democratic convention Tues
day, when by a vote of G47 to 198 the
delegates turned down Byan's county
option plank, which he submitted as a
minority report from the platform com
Japan is ever and always striving for
something, and in the matter of per
centage of divorces the Japanese have
the distinction of leading the world, with
215 divorces per 100,000 of population.
The United States is a poor second with
73, while England and Wales rank low
est with 2. These figures were brought
out in the testimony given before the
royal commission on divorce, sitting in
London recently, and stamp the little
brown people as exceedingly fickle, with
not much of an idea of the duty and
obligation of marriage.
Dr. Bernhard Boeggild of Copenhagen,
Denmark, ouc of the foremont dairy ex
perts in the world, has been visiting the
Northwest and advises the dairymen to
get busy and make the most of their op
portnnities. He says the beet opening
he knows of for a great dairy industry
is along the Washington and Oregon
coast west of the Cascade mountains.
With a total area of only 11,000 square
miles Denmark has a dairy industry
yielding $54,000,000 annually in butter
exports. He claims that either Western
Washington or Western Oregon can
double the Danish figures.
Encouraging reports come from What
com and Snohomish counties to the
effect that republicans there have awak
ened to the gravity of the situation im
posed by the large field of west side can
didates for United States senator and
are lining up in support of Judge Burke
as the strongest and most available can
didate. A marked and significant change
of sentiment is going on in these coun
ties, indicating a determination on the
part of the voters to ignore personal
ambition and pool forces to save the
day. From King county comes the re
port of increasing activity among the
business men in behalf of Judge Burke,
whose candidacy alone offers prospect of
victory at the polls.
Washington end Oregon are joining
bands in the plan for opening the Co
lumbia river from the Pacific ocean as
far aa Robson, B. C. This movement
was started by the Portland Chamber of
Commerce, bat upriver communities of
both states are helping in the plan and
there is no doubt that a great delega
tion of influential business men of the
Inland Empire will join Portland in
making the trip to Nelson, B. C, next
September to confer on the project.
Action by both the American states and
British Columbia in seeking the same
object ought to get results. Such a
project will be of the greatest benefit to
the Inland Empire and the way it is be
ing taken up indicates it will meet with
The D. 8. Department of Agriculture
is using this year on the national forests
over ten tone of tree eeed. Most of this
teed has already been planted or sown.
The rest will be utilised later in the
wagon, as favorable conditions are pre
sented. It takes a great many tree
seeds to make ten tone. Jack pine, the
most important tree for planting in the
Nebraska sand hills by the forest service,
will average something like 125,000 to
the pound. Of western yellow pine, the
tree most extensively planted through
out the national forests as a whole,
10,000 seed wfll make a pound. Alto
gether the ten tons of seed to be used
this year represent perhaps 300 million
•ingle seeds. If every seed could be de
pended on to produce a young tree suit
able for planting, the result would be a
supply of nursery stock sufficient to
plant three hundred thousand acres of
land, but no such result can be looked
for|because many seeds do not germinate.
Most of the seed will be sown, either
broadcast or in seed spots, or planted
with a corn-planter, directly in the place
when the trees are to stand.
Why can not King county republicans
get together for the common good of
republicanism in the state and sift sena
torial candidates until but one remains,
which is all the county ought to have.
Such action would be hailed throughout
the state, and approval of it would be
manifested in no uncertain way at the
polls. With four candidates, two of them
leading ones in the state at large, the
situation is brought to a point of com
plication that bodes disaster, responsi
bility for which rests on King county.
It should not be required of the balance
of the state to size up and select King
county's candidate, yet that in effect is
what the present condition imposes.
Of all the King county candidates
Judge Burke is the only one willing to
allow the republicans of the county to
express their choice of a candidate in a
preliminary primary, he having repeat
edly offered to submit the matter to the
voters and accept their decision as final.
Jle has gone still farther, agreeing to
withdraw from the race if in such pre
liminary primary he did not receive more
votes than all the other candidates com
bined . Have any of the other candidates
accepted this challenge? Not yet, and
the reason is obvious.
Acc6rding to figures compiled by the
weather bureau of the U. S. Department
of Agriculture the Palouse country has
an average January temperature of 29
to 31 degrees, und an average July
temperature of about 65 degrees. The
highest temperature recorded is 105
degrees, and the lowest recorded temper
ature is 26 degrees below zero. The
average annual precipitation ranges
from about 12 inches in the western part
to 23 or 24 inches in the eastern part.
The Walla Walla country is the warmest
region of the state, having an average
January temperature of 33 to 36 deg.,
and an average July temperature of 74
to 80 deg. The highest recorded temper
ature is 118 deg., and the lowest record
ed temperature is 17 deg. below zero.
The average annnal precipitation ranges
from 15 inches in the southeastern part
to about 23 inches around the base of
the Blue Mountains.
A New Hobson In the Field.
It is considered the correct thing to
laugh at prophesies of war between
this country and Japan. No one can
imagine why we should want to thrash
the Japs, for, of course, it is assumed
that that would be the outcome of a
scrap, nor why Japan should be fool
enough to risk the whipping. Now
comes a foreign naval expert to unite
his voice with Hobson's as to the im
pending war and to add that "the
Americans live iv a fool's paradise in
The new Hobson is an Englishman,
and he might be supposed to know as
much about Japan as any one on this
side of the water. Writing iv the
London Graphic recently, he pointed
out the strategic advantages favoring
Japan. Our "fool's paradise" consists
not so much in discounting these ad
vantages as iv believing that, iv spite
of all, the United States is bound to
win out if attacked. We can surely
think of these thiugs without getting
into a panic and shouting for a dou
bled battleship program.
The bill providing for the raising of
the Maine made an appropriation of
$500,000 for that purpose, which was
changed to $100,000, and at that figure
it was passed. It is freely charged
that the reduction of the appropriation
to an Inadequate sum was made be
cause there was no real desire on the
part of congress to raise the Maine.

Where is there another country on

can compare with such a record. No

Vacation on and From the Land.
Vacation on a farm for town dwell
ers who dream of going "back to the
land" should be an eye opener. Ad
vantages and drawbacks may be test
ed that way without paying dearly for
the experience. It works the other
way too. There usually comes a spell
between seedtime and harvest when
farm folks can get an inside glimpse of
city life. They may test the lure of
urban life and figure out whether it be
possible or worth while to break its
hold upou their city friends and rela
tives or upon themselves. It it is all
a matter of discoutent the vacation
trip will banish it.
The clerk can quickly determine

If your fire insurance is carried in any
of the ten largest stock companies in the
United States, your insurance is entirely
safe, for these companies have cash as
sets, including their subscribed capital
and surplus, of nearly four times the
amount necessary to carry all policies
to expiration as based on the past nine
years' experience; but if your insurance
is placed with the Northwestern Mutual
Fire Association of Seattle, it is still
safer, because it has cash assets of
nearly six times the amount that will be
necessary to carry its policies to expira
tion as based on the past nine years'
experience. If you insure with the stock
companies you pay the stockholders a
handsome profit as well as very extrav
agant expenses. If you insure in the
Northwestern Mutual you receive the
profit yourself. Which do you prefer?
