The coming of a new hospital will mean much to Wenatchee. The assurance that we are to have must be received with no small sat isfaction. The necessity for such an institu tion has been felt in the past. And it will be remembered that some time ago a movement was inaugurat ed for securing a hospital, to be founded under the auspices of some one of the Catholic Sisters' societies, tout for several reasons the effort was unsuccessful. The need, even now, for an insti tution equipped for the successful care of surgical and other cases is great; as we grow larger, this need will become greater, and it is hence with no small interest that we wel come the enterprise of one of our professional men. HEAD 'EM OFF. Wenatchee Wants No More Busi ness Men Just Now. We've business enough to keep us busy, but if a big flock of OUTSID ERS blow in, and the present trade Is SPLIT UP, it will leave only SCANT PICKING FOR EVERY BODY. This is a danger we must ward off. We must not permit the city to be come Overstocked with Business Men or Business Houses. The past history of Spokane and Everett furnishes two Grevious Ex amples of an Overdose of False Pros perity. A number of years ago these cities boomed themselves into a fren zy of inflated values and unhealthy growth, and the Sorrowful Sequence is a matter of common knowledge. Is there not a danger of Wenatchee doing the same tiring? Let us work together to avoid this. Let the Commercial Club sit up and take notice. Here's the HARD BOILED TRUTH: Encourage people to come, but send them to the country. That's What Spokane is Doing. The Chamber of Commerce there is $500.00 Cash Will Buy one of the best 5-acre tracts in the valley. 1 acre in trees, balance reach- to be set.|Best soil, smooth and level. Price $3,000, $500 Cash Balance on Easy Terms BOWER & NOWLAN Some Good Cheap Things New Five-Room House and 50-foot lot. King street on the bill Seven-Room House On F street, with bath. Fine building 5-Acre Bearing Orchard With good improvements. Close in $5000 WALKER & WIDNEY promoting abundant immigration, but deflecting the incoming current of new population into the rural dis tricts. Spokane's plan is wise. Develop the adjacent country, and the city will develop Itself; for is it not whol ly dependent on the surrounding country. Twice as many lawyers, doctors and merchants as we now have would make Wenatchee a mighty poor busi ness place. There is ample trade and practice for the merchants and pro fessional men who are here now, but until more farmers come to Wenat ches and spend more money, what's the use of encouraging more people to settle in the city itself, and try to make money? GET MORE RURAL SETTLERS! Encourage People who would like to grow fruit, or sow wheat to come to this country. It's the place for them. Fill up the Mose3 Coulee dis trict, develop the lands across the river. Harness the potential water power in the hills back of us—mak ing the outlying districts busier and better, but head 'em from Wenat chee. • This is not a Selfish Attitude. It's Self Preservation—and that's Nature's First Daw. Wenatchee is Prosperous, of courst, but why Crow so Much as to attract the attention of Possible Competitors who will thereby be in fluenced to Butt In and try to Split the Winnings with us? Is not the World right about this? Thing it Over. RANCHER GONE; A MYSTERY Wife Thinks He May Have Been Slain for His Money. NORTH YAKIMA, April 10.—Con siderable mystery surrounds the dis appearance of Jack D. Willmon, a Columbia river rancher living near Priest Rapids, who has been missing since March 11. During the week prior to his disappearance he drew $275 from a local bank, leaving 42 cents deposit to his credit, since which time he has not been seen, and his family are worried over his absence. He met Miss Annie Fisher, a trained nurse, five years ago when she came from Boston and filed on a desert claim near Wiilmon's ranch, and out of the friendship which sprang up between them developed a love affair which culminated in their marriage New Year's day, 1906. They are said to have lived an exceptional ly happy life, and no domestic trou bles have marred their happiness, and Mrs. Willmon, who is on the verge of nervous prostration, asserts her husband would not desert, her. Mrs. Willmon is in town directing the search for her missing husband, who, she declares, was a man of exemp lary habits, and she is sure he did not lose his money through gambling. She is of the opinion that he may $1600.00 $1500.00 At Lakeside A chance to own a home on the beautiful Lake Chelan Must be Sold If you are looking for a home or investment you cannot afford to pass this up.

Editor World: I learned only last evening that the impression was abroad that I was the abused man referred to by some one (afraid to sign his name) in an article abusing the Ladies' Aid So ciety, in a recent issue of the Re public. I wish to state that I can prove an alibi, as I was out of the city during all of the month that my wife enter tained an aid for the first and only time. She was not sick after the aid, but spent the evening at a X-TOW trie Panama AA Canal Will Affect North and South America. & m & IF conditions were to remain PERMANENTLY as they are today, there might be a doubt as to the wisdom of the enor mous expenditure involved in the building of the Panama canal, but when we look around and see the rapidly increas ing population and resulting DENSITY OF TRAFFIC in our own country, when we observe that our vast transportation facili ties, which made possible our country's wonderful expansion and form the underlying basis of our prosperity, are simply swamped with the traffic which they are called upon to handle, and when we contemplate the enormous amount of money that must be raised TO ADE QUATELY PROVIDE FACILITIES for taking care of the in creased volume of business, we are compelled to conclude that the superfluous population of the earth will soon be forced into other chan nels than the United States. IT IS NOT UNLIKELY TO MOVE INTO THE VAST FERTILE PLAINS AND RICH REGIONS OF OUR SOUTH AMERICAN NEIGH BORS. While it is necessary to have the markets in which to sell our goods, it is equally necessary to have the facilities with which to transport them. I mean by this that the volume of our export trade today is seriously hampered BY THE OVERTAXED CONDITION OF OUR RAILWAYS, especially at terminal points. In fact, it is a serious question whether it has not reached its limit under present con ditions. Many of the important railway systems in their desire to pro vide more adequate accommodations are going so far in their efforts to raise money for this purpose as to well nigh IMPERIL THEIR CREDIT. The managements of these corporations realize fully the serious nature of the steps they are taking, but because of their ex treme anxiety to perform PROPERLY their duties toward the traffic interests of the country they have assumed the responsibility. Port terminals are already so scarce and valuable as to render ade quate relief in that direction improbable, in fact impossible AT ANY REASONABLE COST. It is, therefore, suggested that there be created a vast interior harbor reaching from Chicago to the gulf. The idea is not new, but present conditions should bring it home to the minds of all with greater force than ever before. The beneficial effects of such a harbor are many and obvious. In the first place it would furnish opportunities for the creation of TER MINAL FACILITIES along its entire length. These would be util ized to relieve the congestion at and take care of the overflow from our present port terminals. In the second place it would build up and develop the entire Mississippi valley by giving it the advantages of ter minal ports brought close to its doors. In the third place —and this has a most direct bearing on onr canal proposition—it Would give the people of our great middle west, with their geographical proximity and these superior transportation facilities, A DISTINCT ADVAN TAGE over the rest of the country in commanding the South Ameri can trade. Where are the American ships in which to float this commerce ? That opens a subject quite too large for more than cursory treatment at this time, but I have no hesitation in saying that, with Secretary Root, I think ue should recognize the fact that we are living in a world NOT OF NATURAL BUT OF SUBSIDIZED COMPETITION. WE SHOULD OVERCOME THE ARTIFICIAL DISADVANTAGES IMPOSED UPON AMERICAN SHIPPING, THROUGH THE ACTION OF OUR OWN AND FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS, BY AN EQUIVALENT ADVANTAGE IN THE F>RM OF A SUBSIOY OA SUBVENTION. neighbors playing cards.
