THE INSPECTOR PROBLEM AGAIN "No Funds" Says Commissioner o Horticulture. County Com missioner Will be Asked to Advance Money. The state is again facing the fruit 1 Inspector problem. It is lack of funds this time, there being no mor-; remaining in the horticultural ex chequer with which to pay the inspec- j tor.

In the | meantime, will you please explain the | matter to your board of county com j missioners, and see if they will, at , least for a time, guarantee to pay for this service. The counties have to bear this expense anyway, as your salaries are charged to the counties to reimburse the state. The condi tion of things is simply a question in regard to the state's advancing this money, and later colecfing it from the counties. Please explain to j the county commissioners and see if this work can be pursued without in terruption. J Kindly acknowledge receipt of this ; notice and be governed accordingly. I Very truly yours, "F. A. HUNTLEY, I "Commissioner of Horticulture." I were successful. This does not mean ! that 35 out of 123 were successful j the first time up. Some of these sue .' eessful inexperienced applicants have | been up as many as three times be fore. i This is the smallest examination in many years, being little more than one-half the size of the August ex jamination. There are various rea-j sons for this —one, the large issue >f permanent first-grade certificates last j July: second, the power of the coun ty superintendent to issue temporary j ■ certificates for a year, and the power of superintendents in cities of 10,000 , to do the same, and last, by far the : most important reason, there was i 1 greater percentage of successful ap plicants in August than formerly. THAT RESERVOIR j j Some time ago the Daily World j printed a news item stating that the city water reservoir was cleaned out. ' Several of our readers have come to the World within the past few days ' in regard to this matter, stating that there was a mistake in the report, i and asked that it be made right. Accordingly, a World representa ■ tive saw the water commissioner, and received the following interview: I j "We spent several days at work ]on the reservoir. We found from one to three feet of sand on the bottom. We took out three-fifths of the sand j i pad then quit work. This sand came down through the ; '. water pipes—most of it during the I time when the washout occurred at ; ! the flume. We found nothing of a filthy, character, nor did we find any impurities. The sand comes down through the pipe and always will j , continue to do so. "I do not deem it wise to do any thing more with it until spring. By : that time we will have the pump run ning at the Columbia river to heln supply the ei*y with water while the reservoir is V>ing cleaned. I "At the • "«sent time, the city is |in danger of fire, too, when there is no extra supply for several days." "ARE YOU CRAZY?"
