PIT ON NEW LAW. Spokane, July 3. —Dan Cupid won a decisive victory at the meeting of the Spokane County Medical society last night, when, by a two-thirds vote, it was decided that for the re mainder of 1909 all those presenting themselves for physical examination as a qualification for the taking out of a marriage license should be ac commodated by the members of the society free of charge. The effect of this action, accord ing to Dr. Carrol Smith, secretary of the society, will be that during the time indicated any one making application to a member of the so ciety, whether a stranger or not, will be relieved of any financial tax as a prelude to the entering of the mar ried state. Cupids Friends Win Out. Dr. J. G. Cunningham made the motion and there was an immediate and hearty response. Some debate was precipitated and arguments were even made by a few that the fee for examination should be made any where from $5 to $10. but the co horts of Cupid broke down all op position and won a triumphant vie- tory. The consensus of opinion was that the law is a good one and not framed for the benefit of the medical profession, but or the general pub lic. Dr. Carroll Smith, in behalf of County Auditor R. W. Butler, de clared that erroneous reports had been recently circulated that many tfllet us do your job printing —the prices and quality of work are guaranteed TAKE A TRIP TO THE HEAD OF LAKE CHELAN Commencing July Ist the C. & 0.

It waß also urged that a high fee, if persisted in, would eventually work the repeal of the law, and this, the doctors thought, would be unwise. A few speakers declared that a high fee would drive many of the lovelorn, after being denied a certificate by a reputable physician, to consult fakers and shysters and thus make the law in many cases inoperative. Dr. G. W. Libby said he thought the law should be amended so that in case an applicant was rejected the examining physician should be com pelled to file a report in order to pre vent the applicant from being passed by a less scrupulous practitioner. Average Fee $3 to $8. County Auditor Butler said yester day that from several inquiries he had made of applicants for the average fee charged by physicians for a couple was $3. Deputy Audi tor Bishop placed the average fee at from $5 to $8 the couple. Both declared that the average notary public fee was 25 cents instead of 50, which is authorized by law. "Graft," Cries Bridegroom. These fees have been severely de nounced by many taking out licenses. "It's a big graft." said one budding bridegroom-to-be yesterday. "It's a hold-up game," said another. "Why, we went to this doctor and he looked wise and asked a couple of questions and said 'Three dollars, please,' " DAYLIGHT SALOONS IN NEBRASKA i Lincoln. Neb..

ROOMS AND BOARD LOGGER WAS NOT KILLED RUMOR THAT MAN WHO GOT BUMPED BY GELLATLY'S AUTO WAS KILLED IS FALSE REPORT —GELLATLY NOT IN JAIL. The Post-Intelligencer lor Sunday contained the following item concern ing Mayor Gellatly and his new auto- "While crossing First avenue south at Washington street last night Chas. Swanson, a visiting logger, was struct* by an automobile owned and driven by John A. Gellatly, mayor of We natchee. Swanson waß not badly in jured and the Wenatchee city execu tive was not held. "Swanson and two boon compan ions were tacking across First avenue south at the time. They were beat ing to windward when the Wenatchee automobile hove in sight. Swanson was well past the middle of the right side of the street when the automo bile was approaching, but upon see ing the machine he stopped, and then backed up. "The automobile driven by Gellatly struck Swanson and knocked him down, bruising him severely about the head and face. "The driver of the automobile was taken to police headquarters, but he took with him two witnesses who had seen the accident and who stated that he was driving slowly." The report became current, on the streets of Wenatchee yesterday that the logger had been killed, that Gel latly had been arrested and was now reclining with the "bed bugs" in the municipal bastile. Both these reports were false. . The man got a pretty good bump and parties who saw him say bis face and head were badly bruised, but that his injuries were not serious. CIT!

FOR SAFETY OF THE CZAR St. Petersburg, July S.- —Not in the history of Russian railways have greater precautions ever been ob served to protect the imperial train than those which had been perfected when the czar started for Poltava to attend the celebration beginning to morrow of the 200 th anniversary of the overthrow of Charles XII. of Swe den. The preparations for the trip had been in hand for weeks and the train had already run every foot of the route and every particle of ap paratus of the train and the track had been subjected to the most care ful inspection. Stationmasters, oper ators, and track inspectors at every station along the route, no matter how small, were imperatively re quired to be on duty several hours before the imperial train was due, to examine personally as to signals and switches, and to see that all was in proper workink order. As a further precaution against any attempted outrage on the part of the terrorists the whole line of 1,800 miles of railway between St. Petersburg and Poltava was guarded by troops.

It was a momentous occasion in more ways than one. First. Hud son's political fortunes and those of all in his administration hung on the issue. Then, when other candidates had been nominated and a lull over spread the house, the lean, smooth faced stranger from the Eighth ward rose v pand in a speech which was a classic of eloquence and flow ery diction, Cushman named Hudson for mayor. Speech Made Him Famous. It did not matter that Cushman's choice came within two vote* of a nomination, only to be slaughtered by false friends on the second bal lot. A newspaper writer in the con vention dubbed him "The Abe Lin coln of Washington," and his fame was secure from that moment. ! In 1898 he was nominated for rep resentative to congress by the repub lican state convention at Tacoma. at a time when it seemed that no human power could prevent the reelection of Representative James Hamilton Lewis. Yet Cushman, after a sensa tional campaign throughout the state, beat Lewis, the idol of the state democracy, by better than 3,000 votes. Pierce county politicians have fig ured 'to a certainty that Cushman would be a candidate for senator to succeed Senator Samuel H. Piles. For months it has been well under stood that if Pierce county republl- cans could be harmonized, Cushman would be their choice for senator and he would be able to make a vigorous fight against any man who could be named from King county. Here the situation has been well understood by friends of Senator Piles who have figured that Cushman would probably be the most dangerous ad versary of Piles. With Cushman out of the race there has been suggested tbe names of C. E. White, of Seattle, and of R. L. McCormick, of Tacoma. Knowing that Cushman might not be a candi date again for the lower house, the friends of Judge J. A. Shackleford, of Judge W. H. Snell and of Judge W. P. Reynolds, all prominent Ta coma jurists and lawyers, have been keeping an eye to the windward. It would not be surprising to state poli ticians if the choice for representa tive should fall on one of these three men.

"PEACH BLOSSOM" FLOUR MAKES PURE and WHOLE SOME BREAD. Wenatchee Milling Co. Washington, July 6.—While Rep resentative Cushman possessed the unchallenged title of "house humor ist," he was universally regarded as far from that. His high ability waj recognized by Speaker Cannon iff committee appointments, particularly in his election to fill the vacancy oa the ways and means committee at the time when a great tariff bill was to be reported to the bouse for con sideration. One striking thing about Cushman was that he never displayed his gift of humor to the house for Its amusement, but always with the object of impressing his views mor*> forcibly upon that body. In con trast with humorists who have pass ed into history his fame does not rest on a single speech. His maiden effort in the house attracted so much attention that ever thereafter he gained a hearing as soon as he arosp. His style of expression and his home ly appearance had quite as much to do with the effect as his humorous remarks. He will probably be long remembered by reason of the effect iveness of his humor in debates on the Payne tariff bill in the house. His speech in defense of retaining duty on lumber secured several additional votes in the schedule. European—Thoroughly Modern Rates $1.00, $1.50. BECAUSE SEATTLE, WASH.
