Reed of Wenatchee at the State Horticultural Society conven tion at Walla Walla. In speaking of the project, Mr. Reed said: "It will be no trouble at all to get together a box of fruit apiece for tliis purpose, with which we can fill the hall of the convention at Albuquer que. We will give the delegates something to eat, something to think ahou* and sometning to talk about when they return to their respective homes in all parts of the United States. j • "I expect that a large delegation from the Inland Empire and Colum bia river water basin will attend the 190S conven'ion and they will all go with the united purpose of securing ' the next big meeting for this coun try." At the state convention in Walla Walla, Spokane county was awarded the beautiful silver cup offered by the Up-to-Times Magazine for the best plate of apples.

According to phone messages re ceived here this morning, John F. i Miller will be next mayor of Seattle. | Seattle's first experience with the direct city primary brought out the largest registration in the history of the city. There was a heavy vote in proportion to the registration. I Geo. F. Russell was backed by the saloon element, and while personally a clean man, a fight was made on him because of his associations, Trim ble is a prominent business man and a heavy taxpayer, and had prom- j i ised a reduction in taxes, making his campaign on this issue. Miller is at present assistant pros- j ecuting attorney, and had the back ing of voters representing every ele- ; ment in the city, although he had , t declared for a "closed town," and , ; openly denounced the Clancy broth ers. First Ward bosses, who have , been after the gambling and saloon ' privileges. Returns indicate that ; the closest fight is for the city I treasurership, with Colonel W. F. ' \ Prosser, backed by the G. A. R. men, leading E. L. Reber by a slight mar gin. The election passed off quietly. In , spite of a heavy fall of snow and f rain the vote was large. The big surprise of the election ( so far is the light vote accorded Rus- ? sell, who had the backing of the city \ and county ring as well as the back- < ing of teh saloon element and Clancy c crowd. There was a registration of over 33,000. and of this amount fully 80 \ per cent of the votes were cast. I It is practically assured that Seat- a tie will be a closed town, whichever c way the city election will go. Mayor c William Hickman MooreT who has f been*making a stiff campaign for re- \ election, inaugurated the closed town proposition some months ago. s At first there was a terrific protest, s but the plan came gradually to be in- r dorsed. j 3 All of the leading candidates in a this campaign have come out strong- t ly for the closed town policy. This a was apparently without the asking of j READ TEE WANT ADS. FIVE CENTS PERCOPY. STUNG BY THE MESSAGE President of Northern Pacific Makes Fierce Attack on Roosevelt. Lewiston, Idaho, Feb. 2.—Blaming ! anti-trust legislation for the cessation |in railroad building except on pro jects well under way. President How iard Elliott of the Northern Pacific [ railroad, declares that the west has I been retarded fifteen years by the | great power given to the commissions, ; his opinion being that the interstate commerce commission is the great est check to further development. In .speaking of what he calls hostility of 1 the administration to corporate in terests Mr. Elliott said to a Spokes man Review representative: ! "Not satisfied with the "havoc al ready wrought by extreme and unwise statements, Pres'dent Roosevelt yes terday made another attack on cor porations. His recommendation for federal control of the stock issues o corporations is so rabid as to be alarming. The encroaching power given commissions over railroads has checked building for years to come and the west must suffer for this un wise legislation. This talk about wa tered railroad stock is untrue. There is not a single drop of water in any of the railroad stocks of the country, jlt would be impossible to replace the ! railroads for the par value of the railroad stocks of the country today. "It is time the people called a halt on this vicious legislation. Tor it must be checked if future development is to be expected. Take the Northern Pacific for an instance of the ab sence of water, or, as better stated, ove.r-capitalization. Our earnings amount to 4.23 per cent, certainly not too much for investors. How many business men of Lewiston would be satisfied with such a small profit? All railroad development work not largely completed must stop because of the power given to commissions and bureaus under the present admin istration. Instead of giving these commissions more power they must be shorn of some they now possess be fore corporate conditions again be come normal." any element or party. This, of It self, It Is argued, shows that Seattle likes the closed town proposition, and will stay with it for~some time to come. Another proposition which will confront the new administration is that of municipal ownership. This idea has been more strongly carried out in Seattle than in any other city in the Pacific Northwest, and there is a strong undercurrent here in fa vor of it. D. W. Jones, the purchaser of the S. W. Phillips ranch is in the city today. He will return to Seattle for about a month, after which he will remove with his family to this valley. He is a brother-in-law of J. T. Ajax of this valley. Mr. Phillips will erect a nice residence in the city and move here to live. Do you want to sell quick—adver tise in the Daily World. High School Notes.
