The trainmen of Washington have concluded that the state has out grown the swaddling clothes and are now asking the legislature to make official recognition of the fact by abolishing the "dinky" ca boose. If they succeed in inducing the legislature to grant their re quest, the standard caboose will not only add materially to the looks of a freight train, but will add much to the comfort of the trainmen. With a standard on the rear, a freight train won't look so much like the vanishing point of a kangaroo's tail. OUTSIDERS NOT ADMITTED. In refusing to accept exhibits made outside the state of Washing ton for the woman's building at the exposition, the board of managers have given an incentive to Washington women to show what they can do. This building will be visited with interest by Washingtonians who are particularly interested in everything that pertains to the ad vancement of the state. The unanimous verdict of the men of Wash ington will be that the exhibit can't be beat. MAKE THE APPROPRIATION. Probably the most meritorious piece of constructive statesmanship initiated by President Roosevelt is in the conservation of- the natural resources through the concerted action of national and state authori ties. This action is appealing to congress for official recognition. The president asks that a fund be provided for its maintenance and the continuance of this work—a work so far conducted at private expense. The sum asked for is $50,000, and this is less than one-tenth of the amount appropriated for private pension bills, which it is well known are the perquisites of members of the house and senate. Tariff revi sion is no doubt a very important subject and congress is committed to action upon it, but there are other subjects that the people of the United States are interested in. All over the country farmers, busi ness men and men in the professions are urging congress and will hold its members responsible for neglect of such important legislation as may go to preserve the natural resources of the country, or as are necessary to develop the inland waterways, or establish postal savings banks, or to develop a parcels post. Congress, by husbanding its time, can accomplish much toward desirable and even necessary legislation before the fourth of March next. THE JAPANESE SITUATION. Disguise the fact as we may. when the president of the United States brings the weight of the influence of his office to bear to prevent action by state legislatures hostile to the Japanese, the question is more seri ous than a casual thought would indicate. That something will have to be dt.lie to check the tide of Japanese immigration into the United States is apparent to everyone. The question is, will the federal au thorities handle this question more satisfactorily than the local authori ties? In the nature of the case, the obligation must ultimately rest with the federal authorities. Viewing the situation at the present time, either the federal gov ernment is now pursuing a course of action looking to that end with which the action of the California and Nevada legislatures is interfer ing, or else the diplomatic relations between the United States and Japan are not satisfactory. Race jealousy is a difficult problem to deal with, particularly when it is combined with commercial rivalry. The control of the Philippines by the United States will necessitate very circumspect action in diplomacy and a large navy will help naturally to .make the pathway smoother.

Wenatchee - Washington fHE WENATCHEE DAILY WORL D, WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 0, 1900. The Passing of the Saloons. Wenatchee has gone "dry." Pull man, Moscow, Palouse, Oaksdale and other leading towns of the eastern part of the state have been "dry" for some months, and others are pre paring to follow suit. The moral wave, as it is called, seems to have gathered strength by example and through the efforts of the Anti-Sa loon League. Possibly the new pri mary election law has had something to do with it. At any rate, the fact appears to be that the saloon ele ment has (temporarily, at least, dug its own grave in Washington by a too general admixture with politics and a desire to control the same. This wave may, as has heretofore been the case, be a "spasmodic" one, subsiding in time upon the shore of non-interest and tolerance; but, how ever that may be, its effects must certainly impress a lesson upon th* liquor interests that is not to be ignored in future. The people are deciding not to be dominated politi cally by such interests in city or country.—Big Bend Empire. The Bridge Bill Involved. A bill has been introduced in the legislature by representative F. T. Campbell for the division of Douglas county, says the Big Bend Empire." While we believe that this division would not affect this part of the county nearly as much as the part to be known as "Big Bend" count/, we believe we are safe in saying that at least 75 per cent of the people are against division at this time ?nd that those behind the proposition are endeavoring to get the measure through for the mere purpose of se curing the county seat and officials. Last October, when Mr. Campbeil was a candidate for representative, he made the statement over his own signature that he would not introduce a bill of this kind if elected. He now says he was compelled to do so on account of receiving many petitions from his constituents asking him to do ?o. The people would like to know who Mr. Campbell's constituents are? Do all of them reside in the vicinity of Quincy and Ephrata? Was it this little bunch of people that elected him? Had Mr. Campbell stated be fore election that he would introduce and work for a bill for county divi sion he would not now be occupying a seat in the legislature. In a letter to Mr. Rogers of this city Mr. Campbell says that if we oppose the division bill he will be compelled to oppose the bridge bill. No doubt that opposition will carry with it his own vote, as that is about as far as his influence will reach. When a man goes back on his word to the voters his associates in the house should know it, and they will. While the people here are not over time, yet they realize that it is not ly strong against division at this best for all concerned and believe that Mr. Campbell should have kept his word with them. Wenatchee's Prize Land. ! Some of the prize Wenatchee ap ; pies sold in Chicago for 50 cents each and some of the Wenatchee boosters have figured out so many apples to a tree and so many trees to the acre, and have made it bring $77,777.99. When asked why he did not add one more cent and make it even, he ex claimed: "I am an honest man and would not add one penny if it did not belong there." Good for a Wenat cheeite! Now they claim they have land worth $77,000 per, and darned if it don't look as though they were going to get it. — Douglas County i Press. Last Frjday the Cashmere hotel passed into the hands of H.

C. Her bert Moore, Spokane; P. S. Scanlon, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and William Cousins, Medicine Hat, Alberta, and 207 residents of various parts of the Inland Empire. The executive of ficers of the commercial organization are represented by Levi Grant Mon roe, secretary, who occupies a similar positiDn with the Washington State Horticultural Association and the Spokane county committee of the Al alsa-Yukon-Pacific exposition. The special train, composed of eight standard sleeping cars, two din ing cirs, an observation car and a combination baggage car, left Spo kane the evening of February 5 and will arrive in Los Angeles at 5 o'clock the afternoon of February 12, where ; the p irty will break up after a re ception in the rooms of the Chamber of Commerce. The excursionists are wearing handsome metal badges backed with blue silk ribbon with j metal zed real roses as pendants, and have souvenirs, of the size of a dol tar, made of native copper dug out j of the hills in the Inland Empire. j The itinerary includes stops at Portland, Grants Pass, Medford, Ash- j land md Eugene, Ore., and Shasta j ; Springs, Oakland, San Francisco, Palo Alto.

The Columbia is still blocked with j great jams of ice, which extend in places for miles along the stream, i says he Chelan Leader. However, on account of the fluctuating stages of water the ice is steadily breaking J up an 3 wearing away and if the pres ent L.vorable weather continues the j i river may be cleared soon. The Che- j lan Falls ferry remains tied up. While the river at the crossing place j !is free from floating ice a greater portion of the time, a big jam just \ above the mouth of the Chelan river j ,is liable to break loose at any time, j and it is deemed advisable to take no | chances. The scow used by Captain j Hansen in his river improvement j work, which was carried away by the; j ice two or three weeks ago and lodg ed in the jam in the Chelan rapids, has disappeared under the ice. As all the tools and machinery were re moved from the scow when the ice j threatened it there was no loss except j the boat itself. Pass Irrigation Memorial. A memorial was passed yesterday in the state senate asking for the ir rigation by the federal government of that part of Douglas county lying between Moses Lake and the Colum bia river.
