The Old Strong Bank PLAN TO PLAY BIG FOOTBALL Minnesota Alumni Want Their Old U. Team to Come and Play Washington, Spokane, Wash., Oct. 23.—Minne sota alumni living in Washington, Idaho Oregon and Montana, backing J. M. Lilligren, manager of the Ever green state's football squad, and 60 graduates of the Gopher state col lege now residens of Spokane, are boosting for a post-season football game between Minnesota and Wash ington in Spokane this fall, and there is every indication just now that ar rangements will be completed to puil off the contest at Recreation Park at the close of the regular season. Donald S. Blair, assistant cereal ist at the Washington State College, | Pullman, a graduate of Minnesota, says that Frank Reed, manager of football for Minnesota, favors the proposition, and if the slight pre judice agains nost-season games :s overcome there will be no difficulty in arranging the details. General plans have already been made for bringing the faculty and student body of 1,500 from Pullman, and excursions from various parts of Eastern Washington, Northern Ida ho, Western Montana, Northeastern j Oregon and Southeastern British Co lumbia are talked of, while it is ex pected the Puget Sound and Pacific coast cities will also send' delega tions in the event of a game. Lilli gren has received letters from sev eral hundred alumni of Minnesota in the northwest, and they are heartily in favor of bringing Minnesota's team to this city.

Action Against Farmers Who Fulled Runaway Logs from River. When the Lamb-Davis log boom broke near Leavenworth some months ago dwellers along the We natchee river reaped a rich harvest of valuable timber. They saw the 1 runaway logs and put out in skiffs | and caught them. Wenatchee people themselves were not slow to take advantage of the situation, and hundreds of valuable logs, good for lumber and fuel, were rescued from the racing Columbia, dragged ashore and converted into coin of the realm. Suits Commence. Rumor at the time stated that at least $750,000 worth of logs of all kinds escaped from the Leavenworth corporation and floated down stream. The Lamb-Davis Co., through its attorneys, Reeves & Reeves, has been quietly gathering evidence in the matter, and this week has filed suit against Jay Jones, a farmer living two or three miles above We natchee, and R. A. Brown of Moni jtor, for the recovery of the value of logs alleged to have been the j property of the logging corporation, and to have been unlawfully con verted by these two men. The dam ages claimed in each case is $210.00. Attorneys Corbin and Kemp have been retained by Mr. Brown and by the other defendant, Jones.

The pair of travelers struck the old Ellensberg trail only to find it closed by fences in many places, which necessitated wide de tours and a great loss of time. They reached the crest of a mountain from which they could see the lights of Wenatchee about 6 o'clock at night; but being off the trail it seemed inadvisable to continue on in the darkness, so they camped on the mountain side for the night, and finished the home journey next morning. The distance of over 300 miles was covered, in eight days. j "The several irrigation projects we saw included some fine tracts of land; but the really good land is just as expensive as Wenatchee val ley soil. The tracts that are cheap usually have something the matter with them or they wouldn't be cheap. The Handford land is al right, but it's about 40 miles off the railroad; you have to go to it by steamer on the river. Drawing Big Crowds.

There passed through Wenatchee yesterday a man wdose life is linked with the past—a survivor of the days when trains were not and the horse was the hope of the country. It was Ned Paine—"Uncle Ned people call him. Forty-five years ago "Ned" Paine was one of the best known stage drivers on the pacific coast, famous from Portland to Sacramento as one of the most skillful and fearless of the brave band of men who han dled the four and six-horse teams on the California and Oregon trail. Hold-ups were common in those days, and it was considered no dis grace to "stand and deliver," pas sengers and all. "I have carried all the way from $100,000 to $250,000 in gold bricks, in the big boom days, but we always carried a heavy guard on such occasions," said the hale and hearty old stager yesterday. "Two men usually rode ahead, two sat armed on top of the coach, and ,two more followed about 100 yards behind, always on the watch. I once had my lead horse shot by a high way man. He ran 90 yards at full speed, shot through the heart before tie fell. Those were stirring days, 'way back in the early '60's, almost a quarter of a century before the railroad was finished over the Sisk you Pass, and overland stages put out of commission. We used to carry 11 passengers, with their bag gage, on the one coach, and average 7 and 8 miles an hour, too." The completion of the coast line railroads along in the 'SO's put an erernal quietus on stage lines, and Ned Paine, with other pioneers of the business, were forced further north, still following the frontier. In 1892 Uncle Ned landed in the Okanogan country at Conconnully. He is living there now, at the ripe old age of 73, as fine a specimen of well-preserved and vigorous man hood as ever looked at the tails of six horses and flecked a fly from the pff-ear of a fractious leader". He left last night for Spokane on a brief "visit. Post cards, novels and pipes at the "Mascot."; BRAD TBJS CLASSIFIED PAGE FIVE CENTS PER COPT.
