The drill team, which is known throughout, the ranks of the order, consists of 103 men, and has for several years participated in the production intact. A cornet band is part of the team's equipment. * L»r. L. C. Adams, who was asso ciated for a long time with Robert Downing, the actor, is director. Most of those taking leading parts have been in the profession actively at some time or other, so that the per formance is not amateurish. Two large stages are being erected in Seattle armory. The first is 4Ox 80 feet in size, and immediately in front of this is another, 36x50 feet. Eight electricians will operate lights from various parts of the balcony during the performance, to obtain the spectacular effects desired. In the course of the play the drill . team executes intricate evolutions. There are 800 distinct movements crowded into 45 minutes at a ca dence of 135, without a single com mand. Four companies take part in this drill. Three public performances will be given July 5 and 6. The greater portion of the tickets have been re served by members of the Knights of Pythias, but 4,000 are available for those who do not belong to the order. The proceeds will be vied to defray the expenses of the trip of tbe lola team to the northwest. On their way here they will stop at Min neapolis and give one performance on July 1. Denver will get a produc tion on the return trip. On one oc casion in Chicago 16,000 persons viewed the entertainment. The armory will be decorated spe cially for Pythian week, during which the grand lodge of the domain of Washington will be in session. It is expected that a class of 600 will be initiated into the rank of knights on the evening of July 5, following the big parade. The entire lola team will exemplify the work.

The visitors from lola lodge will participate, rid ing in four large sight-seeing auto % mobiles. Many notable knights, in cluding the supreme lodge officers, will also be here for this event. It j Is expected that upwards of 12.000! persons will be in line. General Pythian headquarters will be established in the new Seattle j hotel, where an information bureau is to be opened next Sunday. Each day next week will be filled with spe cial events of interest to the lodge members. move mm 10 OUSI HAY WILLIAMI INTRODUCES RESOLU TION DEMANDING THAT HE CALL SPECIAL ELECTION FOR GUBERNATORIAL VACANCY. Olympia, Wash., July 2. —Senator E. M. Williams, of King, is after the scalp of Acting Governor Hay. He has introduced his joint resolution, the first of the kind to be offered at the extraordinary session, providing for a special election. The text of the resolution is as fol lows: "Whereas, by reason of the death lof the Hon. S. G. Cosgrove, there is | a vacancy in the office of governor; and "Whereas, by reason of the resig nation of the Hon. Samuel H. Nich ols, there is a vacancy in the office £ secretary of state; W "Now. therefore, be it resolved by I the senate, „ the house concurring, ' that the acting governor, the Hon. iM. E. Hay, be herewith ordered and directed to call a special election within five days, for the purpose of filling the aforesaid vacancies, such election to be held September 1, 1909." Ever since the issuance of the call of the extraordinary session Will iams has declared that he would in j troduce the resolution the moment he had secured votes enough to guarantee its passage. He claims it will go through the senate without difficulty, and that the question will ,be put squarely before the house. The senate voted to refer the reso ; lution to the judiciary committee, i Williams claims it makes little dif ; ference what committee handles the ; matter, as it will ultimately get \ through the senate. What will,happen in is i a question. At present the""admin i istration forces number 41, and they I have been voting solid on all mat \ ters bearing on the acting governor. In case the resolution succeeds in ' both houses, Williams claims the acting governor could not dodge its i mandate by refusal to call the elec- I ■ tion. The resolution instructs the ! executive to issue the call for a spe cial election "within five days." "What would you do if the act j ing governor should pay no atten tion to the joint resolution?" Will ! iams was asked. "We would impeach him," was ; the answer. RECEIVED SEVERE BURN Fire started this afternoon on the •back porch of the J, H. Miller resi denc on Mission street. Tbe cause of the fire is unknown, but It was I discovered by Mrs. Miller before it : had reached much headway. She seized some of the articles that were on fire on the porch and threw them out in the yard. In doing so her hands and arms were very badly I burned and this afternoon she is suf j fering intense pain. The fire was extinguished, before it had done any i great amount of damage. It was . very fortunate that the fire had gain ed but little headway as the water supply is very low today and while |the hose was being turned on the building the water was entirely shut j off. I Bought Douglas Street Lot. i P. P. Holcomb today bought 65 feet of the 105 foot lot recently pur chased by H. C. Littlefieldl from ! Marvin Chase. The lot is on Douglas land Second street. The considera tion was $1,500 and the sale was made by the Chelan County Realty company. Mr. Holcomb bor-ght this lot with the idea of building on It. Mr. Littlefield still retains 40 feet and expects to build this season. Death in a Mine.

DIRT DEALERS HIT THE BALL DEFEATED EAGLE TRANSFER TEAM BY A SCORE OF 14 TO 11—NO GAMES UNTIL NEXT MONDAY. Standing of the Clubs. Won. Lost. Pet. Firemen 1 0 1000 Bankers 1 0 1000 Ellis-Forde 1 0 1000 Real Estate 1 0 1000 Printers 0 1 000 Icemen 0 1 000 Tammany 0 1 000 Eagle L. & T 0 1 000 The Real Estate men have joined the "Smile, Smile, Smile" club. And why? The reason is apparent. In the presence of five automobiles, countless rigs, Frank Keller, George R. Fisher, W. S. Gehr and about 300 other spectators, the Real Estate men "closed a deal" Thursday eve ning whereby they obtained title to 14 runs for and in consideration of 11 runs which were credited to the Eagle Livery & Transfer company, parties of the second part. But all joshing aside it was a good game and it is safe to say that before the season closes each team will show up in far different shape than that of the opening game. The Eagle team played under a great deal of difficulty as but one of the men had played in the diamond this season until last night. Fox, the regular pitcher of the team, could not be present last evening on ac count of sickness. There will be no game until Mon day evening.

REPORTS DIFFER ON APPLE CROP COLORADO MAY HAVE ONLY 3500 CARS INSTEAD OF BEING THE PIVOTAL APPLE STATE— REPORTS ARE CONFLICTING. Reports as to the national apple crop this season are very conflicting. Immediately following the report that Colorado is to have an unpre cedented yield, there comes the fol lowing letter from a New York firm: "Just a line to say that John Moore of Grand Junction, Col., has just paid us a visit and informed us the situ ation was not at all up to what it was when our senior was there about a month ago, and instead of 3500 to 4500 carloads of apples, he thought there might be 2500 if all continued to go well, and not over 500 cart would be Jonathan, Winesap and Rome Beauty * * * In fact, wt do not see what is going to be heavy except Tokay grapes, and under the circumstances we look favorably on the outlook for all your fruits," From Fruit Grower. The California Fruit Grower no tices the conflict in the apple reports, as follows: 'There seems to be a very consid ; erable diversity of opinion as to what ; may be expected in the way of apple ; production in the United States in 1909. One large New York dealer in [ evaporated apples is reported as say : ing that the setyng of apples in New York state is fully equal to last sea :on and that, on the whole, the out i look in the west is better than the i previous season, although some sec tions will have as short a crop as last year. He thinks there will without doubt be as many, if not more, evap i orated apples manufactured this year |as in 1908. "Another well known New York apple handler takes issue with the above view of the apple situation, saying that in the west, say in Mis- I souri and Arkansas, etc., they again have a comparatively poor crop, but. ; all the same, the outlook is somc i what better than last year, when the crop there was very near to an ab : solute failure. As to New York state, the outlook is certainly no where near approaching a promise of a crop equal to the one of last year.' Tippin's Report. "On the other hand, George T. Tip pin, secretary of the Missouri State i Horticultural society, writes Califor ; nia Fruit Grower that, according to reports received by him. the indi cations now are that northern Mis souri will have a good crop of ap ples, while the southern portion of the state will have but one-fourth of a crop. Arkansas, he says, has about 35 per cent of an apple crop pros pect. Michigan reports the best prospect in year, the showing now being for 75 per cent of a yield. New York promises more apples than last year, and the same is true of Kansas and Nebraska. Illinois, how ever, will not have more than a third of a crop. His reports from the northwest indicate a heavy yield, as large as last year's, and, on the whole, Mr. Tippen concludes that, barring future damage, the apple crop of the United States will be twice as large as was last year's. Big Barn Burned. This afternoon about 3 o'clock the barn on the old D. M. Paton property across the Columbia river and south form the bridge, burned. The fire could be plainly seen from the city but the cause of the fire nor the ex tent of the damage could not be learned. Bank Embezzler Sentenced. Ralph K. Parkhurst. former as sistant cashier of the First National bank of Seattle, who was recently convicted of embezzlement, has been sentenced to serve a term of ten years in the federal prison and pay a fine of $2,000.
