ARMBRUSTER
HOME AGAIN
Trip From San Francisco to Se
attle in Record Time, Fifty-
One Hours
EX-MAYOR BENEFITED
BY PROLONGED TRIP
He Favors the Commission Form
of Government, But Thinks the
Law Will Be Declared Uncon
stitutional if Tested
Ex-mayor p. m. Armbruster and
wife returned on Northern Pacific
train No. 42 last night at 10:35, uf
ter an absence In various cities of
California for seven months. Their
lust stop for any length of time in
the •'state of sunshine and flowers"
was at I-iong Bench, from which place
they came direct.
They Were Lucky
To prove that they were both born
under luck stars it may be stated
that they were among the fortunate
ones who made the ocean trip on
the Governor from San Francisco to
Seattle, beating all previous records,
time between ports, fifty-one hours.
First and foremost, however, In im
portance. Is the fact that the health
of Mr. Armbruster is much improved
and he looks "Iwice as well as he
used to," as one of those who greeted
him remarked, it will be rememberedi
that he was compelled lo resign as
; mayor on account ol ill health, In
order to take the trip that has been
so beneficial.
Government by Commission
The ex-mayor expresesd himself us
favorable to the commission form of
government for the city, but said he
was sorry for he believed that the
law granting the right to North Yak
ima was unconstitutional, His prin
cipal reason for favoring the innova
tion is not on account of the expense,
lor he is of the opinion that city
government will cost just as much
under the new as the old, but on
' account of being able to get better
: service from officials.
From Politics to Baseball
In regard to the cup which he of-
I fered last year to the winning team
I in the Central Washington Baseball
I league, he said that the cup would
I have been forthcoming but that the
j league broke up without the schedule
j being finished. He says he stands
c ready right now, with the same prop
' osition, if they will organize a league
j and play it out. His cup was to have
1 an ordinary vase of some kind, plast
ered with from ten to twenty five
dollar gold pieces, so that the money
could have bean detached without too
■ much bother and distributed among
i the players of the winning team,
! where it would have done the most
good.
The ex-mayor was too busy to tell
of his plans for the future, but it
goes without saying that he will be In
ihe business swim.

Charles Heath, a member of the com
mission and Its treasurer said that
Mr. Pace was still the secretary of the
board, meaning that his position had
not been vacated by the acceptance
of his resignation or anything of that
sort, and meaning also, It Is assumed,
that the board was not prepared to

Found in his pocket. This was the
main link in the chain of evidence
placed before the Jury by the pro
entitle attorney.
The implements used In the murdei
were a broken gun stock, which was
found c overed with blood, and n .
slung-shici. made of ■> pair of women's

the effect that W. 11. Keating, a
colored porter ln a barber shop, had
