The other three will be located on farms at Grand Mound, Des Chutes and Hunter's Point. The fertilizer will be furnished by the Farm Bureau for demonstration application and the fertilizer demon stration leaders will make out appli cation for the proper amount needed. Mr. Stookey will supervise the plots during the growing season and check up on the results and place placards designating the demonstration plots. On August 15, 16 and 17 the project leaders prepare reports on their plots giving the effect on the yields. The communities have agreed to build 12 manure sheds in this territory. The project leaders which have these in charge are going to locate them where they can be more easily seen and more readily used in planting of extensive crops. They will be furnished by the first of August so that they can be in spected on the general farm tours. The one big thing that the Satur day meeting accomplished was an arrangement for the proper growing and marketing of potatoes. The pro ject leaders decided to find a way. If possible, to make a survey of the acreage devoted to potato production, to ascertain the varieties planted, and THE WASHINGTON STANDA RD, OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1920 whether the growers wish their fields inspected during the growing season by the potato extension division spec ialist. It is expected that the project leaders in livestock, dairy, soils, and crops will work together making the survey for all communities in the en tire county all on these three lines. It was decided to make.three drain age demonstrations, one each in the Northwest district, Little Rock and Brighton Park. The demonstration at Brighton Park will be given per sonally by A. B. Crane, the drainage specialist between February 16 and 25, and the other two will be hel.l during the growing season, Mr. Crane going over the work when he finds the time opportune. The crop demonstration have been assigned to definite plots except the one at Grand Mound, the farms chosen being those of R. H. Goddard, J. A. Donnelly, Ed. Henderson, L. F. Davis J. B. Talyor and J. T. Sinclair. Those who feel that they have bad poor crops on certain fields are urged to plant them in hairy vetch either this fall or early in the spring, according to Mr. Stookey. Experiments with hairy vetch on lands in Grays Harbor county have proved that it benefits the soil besides raising cattle fodder at home wherto formerly one hundred or more tons of alfalfa were im ported. STAGC INTERVENORS GET COLD SHOULDER Governor Hart Adheres to Rule Deny Personal Interviews in Clemency Matters. When informed Tuesday by his sec retary that Scott Z. Henderson, attor ney for Betty Brainerd and George Stagg, principals in the sensational kidnapping case, Mrs. Edith Cunn ingham Stagg, Mrs. Ada Cunningham, grandmother of baby Stagg were coming to the capltol Tuesday from Tacoma and Seattle personally to petition him for a pardon for Stagg, who was sentenced on Saturday in the Tacoma superior court to ten to fifteen years in the state penitentiary at Walla Walla, Governor Louis F. Hart said that be would not vary from the rule of long standing that personal interviews would not be granted on clemency matters. However in accordance with the usual custon he will read anything which may be presented to him in writing in this case as others as his time would permit. Many years ago it was recognized that it is physically Impossible f>r any governor of this state to do Jus. tice in clemency matters and at the same time transact business of the state which involves the welfare of the people as a whole. If the governor granted a personal Interview in one clemency case, ne I would have to do so in all and the re sult would be that the whole of his time would be taken up with clem ency matters and he would have no time for questions involving the people, or large portions thereof. The governor works an average of 15 hours per day on matters of policy, therefore he cannot give his time to details or matters involving a single individual unless the same first cornea to bim in the form of report and rec ommendations from the proper sub ordinates. This obtains throughout the state over which he has jurisdic tion as in clemency matters. CLEMENCY FOR WHITE MUST AWAIT ACTION OF COURTS Governor Louis F. Hart has de clared that he would entertain, no pleas for executive clemency for Isom White, convicted 19-year-old mur derer who is condemned to hang, until the cade is finally disposed of in i the courts. I Upon being asked if he would re ceive a delegation from Everett scheduled to arrive Olympia this week to plead for a commutation of the sentence, the governor stated that he conld do nothing until the covrt action is ended. Thirty days are given for filing of petitions for rehear ing in the state supreme court and after that, if the petition la denied, appeal to the United States supreme court is possible. It is understood the convicted man's parents are to make a personal call upon the gover nor in an endeavor to save their son. White was arrested last year for the murder of Lee Linton, an Everett taxi driver. During the trial the at torney for the defense tried to prove the point that White waa mentally de ficient.

COMPANIES CONTEST RIGHT TO USli WATERS OF CREEK A hearing was held before State Hydraulic Engineer Marvin Chase Tuesday in the matter of the water of the west branch of Leciere creek, which is tributary to the Pend Oreille river. Hoag has assigned his application for water rights of this creek to the Panhandle Lumber company, oper ating on the banks of the creek. Recently the Diamond Match com pany opened a mill on the creek and started to use the waters for trans portation of 60,000,000 feet of white pine. The Panhandle company is fighting strenuously to keep out the Diamond Match company and the outcome was the hearing before Mr. Chase. « May the day be bright, holding for you joys and • pleasures unalloyed.
