Students of history will take great pleasure in the celebration of the discovery of Lake Champlain 300 years ago. There is perhaps no spot on the American continent more replete with historic meaning and in cident than this natural highway between Canada and the New Eng land and Middle States. In fact, it is probable that the incident in which Champlain allied himself with Algonquins and thus incurred the eternal enmity of the Iroquois of Central New York had much to do with making the civilization of North Amreica Anglo-Saxon instead of Latin. Without the aid of the Iroquois in the numerous wars be tween the English and the French, the English would not have been able to keep the French from extending their authority into New York, thus dividing New England from the colonies further south. But aside from speculation, the Hudson, the Champlain region and the Richelieu were the theatre of momentous events in many wars from the time of Champlain until the final struggle between the Americans and th English in the war of 1812. And it is peculiarly fitting to re call the memories of pioneer days in, American history by appropriate ceremonies. Some opinions have been expressed that the effect of the, dissension in the suffragist convention in Seattle will be to retard the movement for granting the suffrage to women in Washington. But why should it? Rows are usually the rule rather than the exception in men's con ventions, but through habit and training the men are more adept in extricating themselves from difficulties of this kind. If it is the pre rogative of men to have strife in their conventions, it is difficult to see why the same privilege should not be accorded to women. Men have insisted on placing women on a pedestal and worshipping her, but some women refuse to be worshipped if it carries witfi it the denial of the suffrage. Strange as it may seem, where the two sexes intermingle there is more decorum in public gatherings. It might work the same way in political and fraternal conventions. Industry is reviving in the east, as is indicated by the fact that in many large mills and factories the wage scale has been restored that was in operation before the cut of April and t May last, when wages were reduced from sto 10 per cent. Many plants are now running day and night where before they were operated only in the daytime. Money rates are also lower, some banks making loans at 4 per cent. This revival of industry in the east will unquestionably make a better feeling throughout the country and a forward movement may be ex pected from this time on. Undoubtedly real estate transfers will be more numerous in North Central Washington than at any previous period in its history. Many Wenatchee ranchers are giving expression to their public spirit Dy sending fresh shipments of fruit to the Chelan county exhibit at the A.-V.-P. exposition every week. This is as it should be. By keeping the exhibit looking fresh in addition to the excellence of the product, much good can be done for Chelan county in creating a favorable im pression of its resources. Each town in the county should do its part in making the exhibit the mast attractive in the f-ir. Chelan county is a law-abiding county. Judge Grimshaw has don ned the judicial gown ordered by the legislature and consequently the county will not be placed in the lime light as some other counties have been by the refusal of their judges to conform to the law.

FIRE RAGING ON NASON CREEK Fanned by a Stiff Breeze—Broke Out Wednesday and is Spread ing Rapidly. The forestry department is making heroic efforts to stop a forest fire which broke out on Nason creek, about 15 miles northwest of this place Wednesday morning, says the Leavenworth Echo.
