Plllf HAVE A
About 50 members of tbe local
Pytbian lodge have made berth res
ervations on a special car which will
be sent out here Sunday evening and
will leave on No. 3 early Sunday
morning for Seattle. The occasion
of the excursion to Seattle is in con
nection with the Pythian exercises,
which will be one of the special fea
tures in Seattle next week. Those
who will go from here on this ex
cursion are: T.L. Ross and family;
U. G. Pogue and family, Joe Graves,
J. W. Sussex and family, H. N.
Swartwood and family, C. J.Wurtz
and family; Sam Mills, Ben Lowe,
W. O. Parr. Pat Heley, John Aiken,
O. W. Ernst and family, L. C. Ross
and wife, Chas. F. Eggiman and
wife, W. A. Buttles, Jesse Robertson,

J. Murdock and wife, C. O. Brownell
and wife, F. H. Lisbon, M. Hiram
and family. Robert Murray and wife,
Ernest Burdick and C. G. Hall.
There are others who will be pres
ent at the exercises from here who
are already in Seattle and others
who will go over during Sunday and
Monday. One of the special fea
tures of the Pythian week in Seat
tle will be the dramatic presentation
of "Damon and Pythias" by the play,
ers of lola lodge, Knights of Pythias,
of Dayton, O. 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
candidates will come from all parts
of the state.
The parade is set for 6:30 o'clock
next Monday evening. 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
move mm 10
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
"Whereas, by reason of the death
lof the Hon. S. G. Cosgrove, there is
| a vacancy in the office of governor;
"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,
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-
■ 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.
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
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.
Tom Markette, an Italian miner
working in the Fairfax mine, about
30 miles from Tacoma, met instant
death Wednesday as the result of
coming in contact with a trolley wire

Secretary McKittrick had a mess
age last night from Seattle stating
that Chelan county cherries showed
up unusually well yesterday at the
big Cherry day exhibit. There were
no prizes awarded for the cherries
but this fruit was entered from al
most all localities from Washington,
Oregon. Idaho and Utah. All gave
away their choice fruit with a lavish
hand. One of the interesting fea-
tures of the program yesterday af-
! ternoon was the lecture by Prof. H. !
T. French, of the University of Ida
ho, on "Cherries and Cherry Cul- ■
ture." The Dalles, Oregon, sent 400 ;
! boxes or about two tons of Bing and j
j Royal Ann cherries.
Next week will be White Winter i
i Pearmain week at the fair and this
county has some unusually choice
apples of this variety for exhibition
j purposes. A car was sidetracked
this morning to transport about 630
boxes of apples to Seattle for exhibi
tion purposes. These are now in cold ;
storage and after arriving at Seattle
' will immediately be placed in cold
j storage and will be taken out as
needed. This shipment includes all:
j the different varieties that may be j
; needed during the progress of the j
j exhibition.
The First National bank building
of this city was awarded $6,000 dam
ages from the city by reason of the
regrading of Wenatchee avenue.
Plans for the remodeling of this ,
building are now in the hands of Se
attle architects and as soon as the
regrading work is started Cashier
Fisher stated to the Daily World that
jit is expected to commence work on
j remodf ling the Rosenberg building,
j the home o fthe bank. The plan is
;to cut out the partition between the
< bank and the office occupied by the !
• Wenatchee Canal company, giving
I the bank the rooms now occupied by
| the bank and by the canal company.
| The front part of these rooms will be
; remodeled and each store room will
ibe given a distinctive finish. The
\ improvements will cost many thou
sands of dollars but Mr. Fisher stat
ed that it is the intention of the bank
management to make this building,
which at first was put up very cheap- j
ly, a credit to the city.
Late yesterday afternoon, Mrs. A.
W. Clarke, formerly manager of the
Oylmpia Annex Cafe and Bakery,:
closed a deal with Fluharty Bros, for j
their bakery. The new owner took
possession this morning, her assist-j
ant, Mr. McKinnon, being in charge.
After completing the negotiations
last evening, Mrs. Clarke left for Se- 1 1
attle with her son, Mr. Falk. of Mon
tana. The young man is a telegraph
operator for the Great Northern rail-. 1
road and stopped off for a visit with !
his mother, he being en route to the
exposition. * Mrs. Clarke decided it
was wise to accept his invitation to
take in the fair and at the same time 1
make the purchase of some materials i
which she desired for the bakery- <
She will return in a few days. <
Member of the Associated Press
I Leo Marchint arrived here this
week and by easy stages has made
the trip since August 8, 1908, from
Quebec to Vancouver, B. C. Most of
the trip has been made by walking
the ties of the Canadian Pacific rail-
I way taking in the surrounding coun-
I try generally in the interests of the
readers of Pearson's aMgazine, mak
j ing a total mileage of 3,551 accom
plished in 118% days,
i During the progress of the trip
I Mr. Marchint found time to furnish
| Pierson's with a number of short
sketches of countries and people
i which he met in his trip. From Van
■ couver, B. C, he went to Seattle and
j visited the exposition and f urnisheß
< descriptive articles of this big fair
I for the eastern magazine. Mr. Mar
chint is also the war correspondent
;of the London Telegraph. He was
contemporary with Bennet Burley
and Julian Ralph on the London pa
pers and these three men were acting
; for the paper through the Boer war
of South Africa. Mr. Marchint is an
interesting conversationalist and has
a fund of information regarding his
trips and experiences. Besides be
; ing a well known newspaper and
, magazine writer he is a practical
horticulturist and he is very much
; pleased with the Wenatchee valley.
; From Seattle he went to the property
lof the Moses Coulee Fruit Lands
company of which George Virtue is
president. Mr. Virtue sought the
: advice of Mr. Marchant in the care of
this 600-acre tract and Mr. Marchan*
has spent the past couple of months,
there in shaping up the trees. He
is now in Wenatchee and expects to
remain here to make his permanent
> home. He is to become associated
with Messrs. Hailing & Sinclair.
During the trip across the eonti
neat Mr. Marchint carried with him
an autograph book in which he has
the signatures of all the newspaper
editors and other prominent men
; among whom are Premier Laurier,
Walter Scott, Richard Mcßride, Sir
Thomas Shaunnessey, R. B. Angus
and other leading men of the British
! Mr. Marchint looks none the worse
for his long itinerary across the coun
! try but it a hale and hearty young
man and looks capable of many more
continental trips. He had a number
of thrilling experiences, including a
knock-out by half-breeds between
Montizanbert and Mouisseimbia and
: was shot at four different times by
the half-breed outlaws.

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.

ing very nicely in totaling the work
of the field deputies done this spring.
There are found to be under taxation
this spring 17,85 6.54 acres w\ich
parior to this year have never paid

new land has a taxable value of $81,-
The assessor also found in the
county new improvements to the
value of $170,180, making a total
increase of valuation in all lands
and new improvements of $251,435.
The assessor found in the city of
Wenatchee alone, that is within the
corporate limits, new improvements

--000. This has been assessed at a 50
to 6 0 per cent valuation, meaning a
total valuation of approximately
$175,000. The improvements at the
other towns have not been computed
as yet.

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

tent of the damage could not be
