Martin, which has se . cured the exclusive right of sale of I the property, and has already had it : platted. i This place includes ninety acre l " i the best orchard land in the We -1 natchee valley with the best kind of water right, being near the head of the Gunn ditch. It is on the railroad and within forry rods of the station of Monitor with a fine big school building close by. Owing to urgent need of money at the present time the price has been cut way down, and it is to go at $200 "to $500 per acre.

I The spectacle of railway passen gers, alighting in a city of 5,000 be-' ing obliged to seek a private home near the depot for retiring purposes, j reflects anything but credit on the ' town. i Bus the G.

That there ARE ways, as discussed in council meeting last Bigot, of FORCING the company to comply with the law; but it is also historical that towns which have tried to ob- 1 tain their rights against a raiiroad company by force have IXVARIA feIt thfi Mailed Fist of the avenging corporation. The president of the Great North- • e-u is so much more powerful than the Mayor of Wenatehee that thi former can have it all his own way, though his way is manifestly unjust.

Rock Island Rapids may be made navigable by blasting out some of the big rocks in the Columbia and at'a reasonable expenditure of money. This is the opinion of Manager Bruce Griggs of the C. & O. Steamboat cunpany. "At the present time steamers may make their way through the rapids for about three months of the year; but it is so dan gerous that it is not practicable," salJ Mr. Griggs. Asked as to the amount of money More New Settlers. Among the recent arrivals ia the valley are three families from Akron. lowa, all of whom are now at the home of Mrs. F. A. Fisher, at 115 B street North. HI. Mead and family will settle at East Wenatehee. as will also H. J. Smith and family. Rev. Robinson and family, who came from the same place, will go to Peshastin. where Mr. Robinson will assume the duties as pastor of the church there. Epidemic of Marriages. Audtior Godfrey today issued three marriage licenses, as follows: James W. Stephenson of Cashmere to Miss Clarissa Lewis of Chelan. E. J. Carey of Cashmere to Miss Mp.rtha Koehler of Wenatehee. W. E. Buntain of Wenatehee to Miss Carrie Rearick of Wenatehee. Rev. T. H. Atkinson of Entiat is back from Butte, Montana, where he has spent several weeks in calling sinners to repentance in that.city, which has a reputation for its simi larity to the infernal regions. Not a spear of grass grows there, and the smoke and fumes from the smelters make the place a picture of the re gion described so vividly by Dante. SEEKS TO DO BUSINESS HERE Entiat Power Company Asks Fran chise to Supply Electric Juice in City. i ! The council had a busy session last night. j In addition to hearing an extended eulogy on the history and life work of the railway commission, listening to Mr. Wilmot present the claims of the Seattle corporation which asks i the street car franchise, and transact ing a large amount of routine munici i pal business it also entertained the j j proposition of Mr. Barash of the En- I tiat Power company. The latter corporation, aa pa*** lished in this paper Monday, is devel oping 30,000 horse power in the En tiat Valley, and is desirous of extend ing its system to Wenatehee. In presenting its requests to the city Mr. Barash said in part: | "We are going into the power de velopment business on a big scale ia i the Entiat country, and are spending lots of money getting in shape to take ' care of the many contracts we have 1 for supplying power up there for ir rigation and other purposes. I have submitted to you, thrmgh City Clerk Sumner, a preliminary estimate j showing at what price we can furnish, light and power to Wenatehee. The ! prices we shall ask are about half \ what you are paying now. The rea json why a copy of the proposed fran chise is not submitted at this time is [that 1 thought be more ex pedient for me to meet with your proper committee and go into the subject in detail, ascertaining just about what terms and conditions we j might expect, and then embody the 'conditions mutually agreeable in the franchise. If we can obtain entrance the city on certain conditions, we ; are ready to go ahead ar once. The sooner we can have your decision the better, as we wish to drive our poles, ere., while the river is high this spring; this will keep the money ex pended for , imber at home. If we are obliged to get them later .on. when the river is low, we will have ;to ship them in from the Sound." To Ask Advice, j Upon motion of Alderman Bous j quet, it was decided to ask Hanford, ;the Seattle electric expert, to come ' over and consult with the city upon i the franchise asked for by the Entiat | Power company, as well as the street car franchise for the Federal Engi | neering company. j The schedule of proposed changes I for light and power, aud the question lof a franchise to Mr. Barash's com i pany was referred to the proper committees for attention: FIVE CENTS PERCOFY. that should be expended to put thhj point of the river in good shape, Mr. Griggs said: "One hundred thousand dollars would do a lot of work, and would put the river ia much better condition, and $50,000 or $100,000 would open the river for the whole season. If the government could be shown the feasibility of this proposi tion matters might be arranged to open the river in this manner thus making an open river between here and Priest Rapids." INSPECTOR IS ! NOT HOPEFUL Perley Says Wenatehee Needs Depot Facilities, hut Commission is Too Busy to Effect Changes Now A. W. Perley, state inspector of j railway tracks, safety appliances, jetc. visited Wenatehee yesterday on •behalf of the State Railway Commls i sion, and investigated the condition of the Great Northern Railway's de | pot, pursuant to the many com plaints within the last year or two j over the absence of a water closet. The inspector said to a World re | porter last night that considering | the size and importance of Wenat ! chee as a shipping point the city has about the worst depot on record. ; "Over half a million dollars' worth of business is transacted here each year by the G. N.." said Mr. Perley, "and yet the railway's passengers are obliged to go out in town and ■ ask admission to private homes be -1 cause the depot is without proper retiring rooms. I have made my re | port to the commission, and they will send you a copy of it if you ask i for it. ( Road is Ohstinate. "I doubt very much, however, If the road would take immediate ac tion on any suggestion from the rail way commission, for they are ignor ing all the rules promulgated by the commission. Both the N. P. and the G. N. have persistently refused to post the recent laws passed by the commission for their regulation; in some cases they even returned the set of rules sent them to the com mission. There are now eleven cases in court, brought by the commission against the railroads, and you can see what a fight the commission has on its hands." Inspector Perley addressed the council last night; told them brief ly that the railway commission would do what they could, and told them at great length of' what the commission was doing in other di rections.

Purring electric cars, buzzing up the scenic valley from Wenatehee to | Leavenworth, and serving the inter mediate population, is the happy spectacle promised within eighteen months if the council grants the i franchise asked for by the Federal Engineering company of Seattle. Ar last night's meeting or the al [dermen J. M. Wilmot, from the'au diting department of the Seattle Electric company, and as secretary and treasurer of the Federal Engin eering company, appeared and laid ! the company's desires aud intentions Line Cp Valley. ' "This company," said Mr. Wilmot. I "has been formed for the purpose of taking over the plans, assets such y are, etc', of the Red Apple Railway company. Our plan is to J construct an electric railway line j from Wenatehee, up the river, to | Leavenworth, serving Monitor, Cash ! mere, and intervening populations. The franchise we ask for, a copy of ! which I now submit to you for your' investigation and consideration, is practically a copy of the franchise granted by the City of Seattle to the Electric company. If the city o< Wenatehee decides to grant us tho privileges we ask, we will agree to have a single line of cars in opera- (Continued on Page 3) READ THE WANT ADS.
