TRIBUTE TO STRAHORN
AS AN EMPIRE BUILDER
Hundreds of Leading People of
the State Unite to Express
Approval of His Acts
HIS RAILWAY BRINGS
MUCH TO THIS VALLEY
Speakers at Banquet at the Com
mercial Hotel Laud Man Who
Took the People Into His Con
fidence and Built Railway
The banquet at the Commercial
hotel Wednesday evening closed the
gala day in honor of Kobert E. Stra
horn and of welcome to the North
Coast to North Yakima. Throughout
the evening, every speaker paid rome
tribute to the man who had l':u- live
years fought and worked to make
the North Coast a go and at IU Close
those present rose en masse and gay*
him three cheers. When called on
for a speech, the builder of tho
North Coast was hardly able to re
spond because of his emotions. Let
ters of regret were read from Unltel
States Senator Miles Polndexter. Gov
ernor Hay and Guy M. Talbot, presi
dent of the Pacific Power & Light
company. Mayor Schott acted as
toastmaster and sat at a small table
a: the end and beween the two rows
of long tables spread for the guests in
the new dining room of the Commer
cial hotel.
City Makes Good Deal
Mayor H. H. Schott, the toast
master, called the meeting to order
shortly before ten o'clock and In a
short address welcomed those pres
ent to North Yakima. He said: "North
Takima today celebrates the greatest
event of the city, which means much.
The values of property have risen Im
mensely. North Yakima is oil the
map, for every city in this country
will 'know that the North Coast rail
road has come to North Yakima. 1
say now that Mr. Strahorn ought to
be congratulated on bringing Into
North Yakima the North Coa3t rail
road. I was a member of th.2 ef
council when Mr. Strahorn flrst too
out his franchise in this town. Sine

Fred Parker, who spoke as a pin
neer, said: "When I came here j
years ago. 1 was not abb- to coma
a palace car nor any kind of a ca
but by a lumbering stage by way
The Dalles. That was the way w
got all our freight in these days,

In 1884, the Northern Pacific reach
Yakima City, but there was no sue
celebration as this, on the coming
the North Coast to this ciy. Th
we could have bought Nob hill, selling
now for $3000 per acre for $2.00, but
we had neither the price nor the
nerve. We have waited long for this
event —the coming of the North Coa9t
railroad and the proper facilities for
transportation now grown so eno
mous that It is no longer a one ral
road proposition.
Strahorn Comes Into His Own
H. J. Snively, attorney for th
North Coast railroad, was the ne
speaker. He said this was the da
that Robert E. Strahorn comes In
his own. The day we looked fo
ward to has come to pass and w
felicitate ourselves on the coming
the railroad. In justice to Mr. Str
horn 1 wish to say that I believe th
people Of North Yakima have n
appreciated the gallant fight made b
him to get this railroad through." M
Snively spoke of the attitude take
once by Vice President Levy of th
Northern Pacific, wno refused certa
concessions to the North Coast b
cause be did not believe it was a le
itimate proposition, but a blackma
ing scheme. "I.,ater," said Mr. Snive
ly, "Mr. Levy acknowledged that the
(North Const was the finest railroad
lin the country and he was sorry In
•did not have a finger In the pie."
"1 consider," said Mr. Snively,
"that the conception and construc
tion of the North Coast ral'ioad Is
the greatest single act n the history of
Wasbingon."
Strahorn nnfJ the N. I*.
Introduced as the man who would
■tell how he helped the North Coast
railroad come to North Yakima, Ira
■"P. Englehart, attorney for the North
ern Pacific, arose amid laughter and
applause and said: "The Northern
■Pacific has been laboring 26 years In
this valley so that Mr. Strahorn
•would be able to build his Njrth Coast
railroad, and has always take^a much
■interest In Its growth." (Cheers and
■laughter) "With Mr. Strahorn hert
■we think it will enable ua to do more
business With the people of this city,
and do it more pleasantly. In future
years we. shall always take great in
terest In the growth of the North
"Coast."
Welcome From Horticultural Union
W. N. Irish, president of the IT >r
ticulturai Union, was Introduce I as
the man who had more to do with the
grower than with the railroad. He
feald in part: "Tin- coming nf this
road to North Yakima means ti us
greater facilitie-s for the greater dis
tribution of fmii at better pr'cei 'I he
Horticulural Union, on behalf of Its
40U members, extends th- North
Coast railroad a hearty welcome,"
Spokane Merchants' Views
After extending the thanks of the
Spokane delegation to the city ol
North Yakima for its courtesy to
them and to Mr. .Strahorn for th -
pleasures of the trip, Mr. T. Crane, a
merchant of Spokane nnd a rancher
of Wenatchee, gave those present
some figures and facts to think of,
He said: "In 20 years the present
railroad facilities will not be ample
to care for the Immense crops thai
will be grown on the 100,000 acres in
this valley bearing at the rate of a
. carload of 600 boxes to each acre. To
ship this Immense amount of fruit
you will need 3000 feet of lumber to
•build boxes for each carload, or a
total of 3,000,000 feet of lumber per
annum; with 3,000,000 pounds of pa
per to wrap the apples In and five
million pounds of nails for putting
the boxes together. Thr-.se figures
might be alarming if eastern orchard
conditions were normal but they are
not."
"There are not one hundred acres
of young apple trees, where then
are thousands of acres of dead fruit
trees and thousands of acres more
dying. In the east there Is no attempt
made at spraying, New York trees I
have been bearing fruit for the past |
hundred years, the soil is depleted
and the trees are full of pests. The
orchards of the eastern states can
never be renewed."
snub.nn Praises Assistants
Thanking those present for their
overwhelming tribute, Mr. Strahorn]
said: "In all this something, some
body has been overlooked. While I
have probably succeeded beyond what]
some men have done, 1 attribute it
mostly to the loyalty, help and co
operation of the men I have been for
tunate in being able to bring into the
work." Ile paid a tribute to North
Yakima, saying that very few com
munities of only 15,000 Inhabitants
would have been able to do what this
city has done and could make such a
showing as was made today. Ik
thanked all for what had been done.
In closing he said he did not think
that an additional railroad in the
valley would hurt the existing line
and had always felt so and he believed
that before the North Coast had got
ten firmly organized that another rail
road would be needed. This he said
he was confident .if.

with cheers ended the evening's

YAKIMA 10 FRONT
AT BIG STOCK SHOW
)uncan Dunn Sells Huge Steer and
Wright Company Purchases
Prize Winning Lambs
The Pacific Northwest Livestock
show, which closed In Portland la3t
Wednesday, was a record breaker in
regard to the prices obtained for some
of the fat stock. Not only that, it Is
interesting to the stockmen of the
Yakima valley from the fact that a
number of local people were directly
interested in the sales.
Fourth prize 2-year-old steer, fed
by A. D. Dunn, Wapato, Wash., was
bought by Union Meat company at $7
per hundred weight, 1720 pounds.
The *'akima Sheep company, com
posed of the Messrs. Wright, male
a number of purchases. Including the
following: champion car lot yearling
wethers, grand champion car lot
la mlis, second prize car lot lambs,
third prize car lot lambs, fourth prze
car lot lambs, fourth prize car lot
ewes and a lot of champion wethers. I
T, W. Coles sold his champion steer
weighing 1 i,50 pounds for cents a
pound, Mr. Constantino of Portland
being the buyer.
BURIAL PLACE WILL BE
MADE MOR ACCESSIBLE
By Extension of Street Car Line—
Sightly Location With Shade
Trees, Shrubs and Lawn, Make
it a Beauty Spot
Lying on tho edge of the soum
slope of Nob Hill, commanding a view
of the Moxee, the upper and tho lower
gaps, and with the Ahtanum hills
for near neighbors, Yakima's city of
the Dead, presents wonderful pos
sibilities as a beauty spot. When the
proposed continuation of the grea>
car line down the cemetery road, is
completed and the side walk asked
for by the Woman's Relief corps built,
Tahoma will be more accessible.
Even under present conditions ev
ery Sunday sees numerous visitors.
The extension of the water pipes to the
cemetery, made last year, simplifies
the problem of the upkeep of the place
considerably. There are hydrants ev
ery few feet, making possible a green
sweep of lawn and proving a con
venience for thoso wlio wish to keep
fresh flowers upon the graves of their
dead.
Not only has the cemetery associa
tion spent a good bit. of rendering the,
approaches more attractive, and in
selling out more shade trees along:
the drives, but thousands of dollars
are represented In the many fine mo
numents Which have been erected
within the past months. One of the
most pretentious is that of Senator
Walter J. Reed, a shaft of polished
gray .stone, inscribed on all for faces.
On the front is his civil war record,
and on the corresponding side of the
back, under a camp fire emblem, ver
ses from "The Bivouac of the Dead."
Another side tells that he was a
Yakima pioneer, and founder of Cle
Blum, while the fourth face has a list
of the important offices he has held,
including register of the land office,
post commander of the G. A. it.
mayor and representative In the state
i assembly.
Many different kinds and many dif
ferent sorts of granite are used, some
v.ry black, other stones being red and
brown. The white marble of the older
graves is no longer usad.
The maple trees, of which there are
a Quantity, nre budded and will soon
be In leaf. There are a number of the
Inverted willows, lilacs, rose bushes
and a few young cedars. There are
one or two firs unions the older trees.
In so far as there are no mounds over
the graves, Tahoma cemetery would
meet with the approbation of the
landscape architect, Howard E. Weed
who was recently here. Mr. Weed,
however, advocates the headstones also
sunk into the ground, so that the sex
| ton with ills lawnmower can do better
(and quicker work in keeping tho lot
j tidy. HS would have a great deal
more shrubbery planted, too, not only
In Individual lots, but grouped to give.
I a park-line effect to the whole.
With incere water available, It Is
likely that considerable landscape
gardening will be done this year.

FRUIT TREES
ARE WATCHED
Owners Who Fail to Spray for the
Pests Will Find Themselves
Against the Officials
WORK IS TO BE DONE
AND COSTS CHARGED
Inspector Morrison, Having Fin
ished With Inspection of Nurs
ery Stock Is Looking for De
linquent Orchard Owners
Owners of fruit trees In this coun
ty who neglect the lime and sul
phur spray for insect pests are to
j have a rude awakening this season,
j Their trees will be sprayed and they
, will pay the cost It does not matter
at what time the authorities are able
Ito reach them the trees will be
sprayed Just the same. This may j
,be after the blossoms have dlsap-j
I peared and the fruit got so far along
I that the lime and sulphur will leave
: Its marks. Owners of home orchards
are the ones most likely to suffer and
! to be called upon to pay the official
price for the work.
Big Growers Are Alert
Commercial orchardlsts as a rule
are very alert in the application of
the various sprays which protect the
fruit from its enemies but it has been
found in past years that those who
own small tracts containing but a
few trees have been negligent or In
different. Some of these people ha s
got an idea that If the blossom sea
son arrives without lime and imphur
having been applied to their trees
they are safe. Inspector T. O. Mor
rison is this year to look for people
with such an idea. He already has
a list of those who are indifferent to
the general claims of the valley with
regard to clean fruit and Is getting
out his notices. He has been very
busy to date in the examination of
Incoming and outgoing nursery sto?k.
This work ts now about completed
and he has time to attend to the
other and vital phase of the situa
tion.
ZILLAH GROWS TBE

"Zillah Qrows the- Fruit She

gresslveness. She is the tirst cltv
in Yakima county to take advantage
of the offer recently made by the
O. W, It. & N. company to advertise
the country tapped by that railroad
system, and of course the cities
along the line will come in for a
big share of the benetits. The corn

carry on this publicity work. Zil
lah was invited to raise $1200. and
to show how earnest the citizens of
that burg are in boosting things
along, it may be stated that the
amount was raised" In twelve min
utes. One hundred dollars per min
ute is traveling some. That added
to the railroad company fund will
make a total of $6000, the judicious
expenditure of which will undoubt
edly be of far reaching benent

THROUGH EXPRESS
CHARGES ARE CUT
American Company's Figures Ate
Being Met—The Northern
I Has Announced Reduction
The advent of the O. W. R. & N.
Co. and tho American Express com
pany has had the effect of cutting
down the through express rate from j
New Yorl; and Chicago to North Yak-
Ima from 25 to 40 per cent. Here
tofore the rate on a seven-pound pack
age from Chicago to* this city has
been $1, while the rate on an eight
pound package has been $2.20. Tbe
rate of the American Express com
pany for a package of the latter
weight Is $1.20. This reduction Is
made possible by the fact that
through express for North Yakima is
carried westward as far as Pendle
ton. Ore., without the cars being
opened. Express is delivered here
on the fifth day from New York.
The Northern Express company will
reduce its rates, notice to that effect
having aire idy boon filed with the
Interstate Commerce commission.

YAKIMA PEACHES TO
GO TO BRITISHERS
Railway Man Says That He Can
Promise a Service of Twenty-
Four Days to British Ports
Twenty-two days from the time
peaches leave the orchards in east
ern Washington, Oregon and north
o;n Idaho until the fruit is placed on
sale in London and Liverpool markets
IS the fast freight service promised
for this season by Percy L. Sinclair,
traveling representative of the Lacka
wanna lines, who has been spending a
great deal of time in North Yakima.
He says the transcontinental railroads
and connecting lines already are pre
paring to handle the crop of the dis
trict, adding:
Yakima Peaches Good
"If we can assure the shippers of
such a schedule, we also can show
them that they are in a position to
compete successfully with the pro
ducers of Spain and northern Africa
in supplying the British market
; Tests have proved that peaches
grown in the Yakima valley, properly
packed, can travel for 22 days and
arrive in as good condition as tho
day they were placed into the box.
Considering the fact that none of the
orchards of Spain or Africa produces
as high grade peaches as are grown
in the Inland Empire, and that tho
fruit can be sold as cheaply In Lon
don as that from Africa, the oppor
tunity for the northwestern horticul
turist is apparent.
Opens Now Markets
•'The opening of the British mar
kets will mean a great deal to the
Inland Empire peacngrowers, and Is
bound to enlarge the possibilities of
this line of fruit growing in the north
west. Last year many peaches of ut
, cellent quality went to waste simply
fiom lack of a market which could be
, reached.
"The opening in the British market
for Washington and Oregon apples
also ts splendid, although at this time
of the year the Tasmanian apples aro
beginning to invade England. But
here is a curious fact: I know a man

NOT A CHANCE
FOR THE GIRLS
Such Appears to Be the Evidence
of Conditions Surrounding the
New York Fire
DOORS SWUNG INWARD
AND ESCAPES BLOCKED
Greater Number of the Employes
Were Unable to Speak English
Yet There Were No Yiddish or
Italian Directions
XEW YORK, March 27. —Fixing the
blame for tho loss of 142 lives In the
Washington Square fire Saturday drew
to a focus the emergency forces of the I
district attorney's office firs marshal J
and coroner, stats Isbor department,
and Borough President McAnnv of
Manhattan. Dozens of Investigators
collected available Information and I
grand jury men turned ths personal
probers in addition. Tim grand jury
In formal resolution presented lo the
court of general ssssions, offereu their
aid to the district attorney and de
clared someone should bo prosecuted
for the disaster.
Evidence Is Serious
The investigators found evidence
that the doors at the exits swung In
ward, crumpled fire escapes in ths
air shaft, one fire esctp* blocked by
the iron shutters when opened in tits
air shaft, an empty water tank on th.
roof and the practice prevalent among
the cutters of lighting cigarettes a
few minutes before quitting time. All
of this and what is yet to bo ferretted
out, will be placed speedily before the
grand jury.
Tenement Owners Tried
The tenement house department
summoned the owners of half a dozen
faulty structures to the police court as
a preliminary step to a far reaching
investigation of the tenements. Ono
man was held for violating tho law
and other cases went over until to
morrow. Fire Marshal Beeres stated
today that from his investigations it
would have required three hours for
the 700 girl employes to descend by
one fire escape. There had never been
a fire drill, nine-tenths of the cm
i ployes cannot speak English and yet
j he found no signs in Yiddish or Italian
pointing to thu exits.

SMUDGE POTS READY
FOR INSTANT USE
Fruit Growers Are Well Fortified
Against Any Possible Damage
From a Serious Frost
With a total of 26,00 0 smudge pots
delivered to the farmers In the lower
valley this year by the Granger Stor
age Co., making more than 70,000
now in use between Union Gap and
Xvennewick. there is little apprehen
sion that Jack Frost will win very
much of a victory if he should in
vade this territory the latter part of
next month, says the Granger News.
In the Kennewick country it is es
timated that about 10,000 of these
frost proof devices are in use.
There are many seasons when the
fruit grower is never bothered with
frost at all, but to be on the safe side
they have supplied themselves with
pots and oil to be ready for instant
use when necessity demands. They
have also supplied themselves with
frost alarms, a delicate piece of me
chanism, so arranged that It rings a
bell in the house when the tempera
ture reaches the danger point.
At the present time the Granger
Storage Co., has tanks at Wapato,
Toppenish, Granger, Grandview, Pros
ser and Sunnyslde, with a total cap
acity of about 150.000 gallons of oil.
This doesn't Indicate that that much
oil is used every season to Insure a
fruit crop, but it gives an idea of the
amount that might be used in case of
an imergency. Much of the oil 'n
the tanks now Is the supply left over
from last season.
The last car of heaters arrived la-it
Monday and are being delivered to
the farmers this week.
WILLIAM II OF GERMANY
AGAINST THE DRINK HABIT
Extract From His Recent Speech to
tho Naval Cadets at Murwlck—De
clares Against the L'so of Liquor
Because Of Its Evil, Physical
Moral Effects —Urges Cadets
to Join the Temperance So
cieties
"I will give you' in addition some
advice upon a question which, in the
interest of my nation, I have very
much at heart, that of the alcohol
evil and the drink habit.
"I know very well that the pleasure
of drinking is an old heritage of
the Germans, but we must, by self
discipline, deliver ourselves from that
evil.
"I can assure you that In the course
of my reign of twenty-two years, I
have observed from experience that
the greater part of the crimes which
have been appealed to me for deci
sion ought to be reported as the re
sults of the alcohol evil.
"Formerly It used to be considered
a very smart thing for youth to ab
sorb a great quantity of alcohol, and
I myself, as a young officer, had
such examples before me but never
Imitated them. Those ideas belong
to the Thirty Years War and no longer
fit our times.
"Without speaking of the results of
drink, which I do not need to describe,
I will call your attention, specially,
to one effect of intemperance which
touches your future profession. As
you will observe for yourself, In the
course of your service on shipboard,
naval service demands a height of ef

Stomach Troubles
Cured by Vinol
HERE IS PROOF
" I suffered so long from stomach
trouble and indigestion, that I lost
flesh rapidly — VINOL cured me
after everything jl&e had failed. It
strengthened my digestive organs—
gave me a hearty appetite, and I
can eat anything without the slight
est distress. Ido not believe any
thing equals VINOL for stomach
trouble and indigestion."
W. E. Waterhouse,
Portland, Me.
Mr. Thos. G .Wallace, of Detroit,
Mich., writes, ''I suffered for years
from a chronic stomach trouble.
VINOL entirely cured me after
every.' . o A c had failed."
It . .he curative medicinal ele
ments of the cod's liver, combined
with the strengthening properties
of tonic iron contained in VINOL,
which makes it so successful in re
storing perfect digestion, and at
the same time building up the weak
ened run-down system.
Try a bottle of VINOL with the
understanding that your money wiM
be returned if it does not help you.

fort which Is hardly possible to sur
pass. It devolves on you tb maintain
a steady tension without cessation, to
keep In condition to meet exigencies.
"The next war, the next naval bat
tle, will demand from, you sound
nerves. Nerve power will decide the
victory. Now, the nerves are ruined,
damaged from youth by the use of al
cohol.
"Later you will have opportunity to
see the target ships and to study ths
action of modern projectiles upon ves
sels. You will have thus a picture of
the conditions of battle. You will see
frightful devastation. It is then that
It Is necessary to have sound nerves
and a cool head. The nation which
absorbs the least amount of alcohol
will carry home the victory.
"And this Is what you must do,
gentlemen.
"You must give the example to the
crew, for It Is example which acta
most potently upon men. I demand of
you now In this naval school and,
later .among the battleships, that you
watch yourselves and each other la
this regard, and that you do not
count alcoholic beverages as among
your privileges.
"There are being founded In the
navy, where they already exist. Good
Templar lodges and sections of the
Blue Cross. Many officers and some
hundreds of men belong to them. I
hope that you will do everything which
you can to persuade the men to Join.
I do not need to call your attention
to the example of the British navy
where 20,000 officers and men already
belong to these societies, to the very
great benefit of the navy.
"This is a matter of great import
ance to our navy and to our people, if
you will pay attention to the education
of your men In the sound sense of
abstinence from alcohol, I shall have
sane and reasonable subjects.
"This Is a question of great Import
ance to our people, for these men,
when their terms of service have ex
pired, will carry back the idea to
land.
"If you will champion these prin
ciples, my people will be great moral
ly. This Is a labor In which I pray
you to co-operate.
