Wenatchee's Big Red Apple Daily
VOL. V. NO. 68. WENATCHEE AND THE APPLE SHOW E. GAUNTT RIDICULES THE IDEA THAT NATIONAL APPLE SHOW RULES WORK SERIOUS DETRI MENT TO IiOCAL EXHIBITORS. So much has been said recently concerning the rules adopted by the management of the National Apple Show held at Spokane in November, that it is necessary for some one to try to explain them and see if there is really anything unfair about them. The first thing to consider is the wope and purpose of the show. As to its scope it is called the National Apple Show, because all states and nations are invited to participate. Secondly, the purpose of the show is to boost the northwest as an apple producing section, to call the atten tion of the world to the beauty and quality of our fruits. As an adver tising medium the apple show can not be surpassed. It 1s obvious that the rules of such a show should be broad and fair to all sections, fearing none but being fair with all of them. Could we in vite the world to bring their fruit to this show if the rules are such that they stood no show of winning a prize? We could not. and we must remember that Professor Van De man, who heads the judges, is a member of the American Pomologl cal society (whose rules have been adopted), and that his honesty and integrity has never been questioned. Why then should anyone fear to trust to such rules when adminis tered by such men. It has been ar gued that the rules are obselete and out of date and are against this dis trict. eLt us see how out of date they are. We have some compara tively new apples that we grow to perfection, namely. Delicious. Stay man WMnesap and Winter Banana. The quality rating of Delicious is 18-20; of Stayman 16-18, and Win ter Banana 16-18, which shows that they at least are fairly rated for quality. The rating of Winesap is 14-16, of Spltzenberg 20, of Yellow Newtown 18-20. of Arkansas Black 10-12. which of all qualities ratings Is too low as it outranks the old ►Winesap when well grown and pro perly ripened. But the quality rat ing was taken from the east, where the apple does not do quite so well. The quality rating of Yellow New town is 18-20, and as that is the apple Wenatchee growers seem to be afraid of it is well to consider the merits and demerits of this famous apple. It has been the standard for quality among yellow apples for over 100 years and when well grown is a splendid apple, but as it is not grown here and as one other district does grow it largely some people jump at the conclusion that as it scores from 2 to 4 points more than Winesap (Wenatchee favorite), that W'enatchee stands no show of win ning the sweepstake prize for car loads. The Newtown being a yellow apple it will be far more difficult to get a carload of perfect specimens than it would Winesaps or Arkansas Blacks or even Spltzenberg, as all packers know well that all yellow apples show every mark or scratch very much more than the red varie ties, which is more than four points in favor of Wenatchee red apples. The rules for judging in the car lot class are: First, value of variety for the purpose for which it Is adapted, 25 points; second, color, size and uniformity, 25 points; third, freedom from marks and blemishes, 25 points; fourth, pack, 25 points. To tal, 100 points. There is not a word said about quality in the rating for the car lot sweepstake prize and we venture the assertion that that prize of $1,000 will be won by a carload of red apples. But there are ten other carload prizes. The first prize being $250 and one of them may win the grand sweepstakes, but in that event the winner would get only one prize. The car lot entries are as follows: No. 2 —Best carload Winesaps, first prize $250 No. 3—Best car Rome Beauty, flirst prize 250 No. 4 —Best car Wagner, first prize 250 No. s—Best car Mcintosh Red, flirst prize 250 No. 6 — Best car Jonathan. flirst prize 250 No. 7 —Best car Spltzenberg, flirst prize 250 No. B—Best car Yellow Newtown flirst prize 250 No. 9 —Best car Gano or Black Ben, first prize 250 No. 10 —Best car Delicious, first prize 250 No. 11—Any other variety, first prize 250 Wenatchee should compete for seven out of these eleven and stand a show of winning No. 1 on the grand prize. We would like to ask what brought fame and glory to We natchee more than the winning of the grand prize by Mike Horan? And we believe Mike Horan can win the "prize again if he feels disposed to (Continued on Page 8.) WENATCHEE 11- SNOHOMISH 0 LOCAL TEAM HAD NO SERIOUS TROUBLE IN WINNING FROM SOUND FOOTBALL TEAM IN AN INTERESTING GAME. Wenatchee high school won the first game of the season on the grid iron, Saturday, from the Snohomish high school, on the local grounds, by a score of 11 to 0. The day was too warm to make ideal football wea ther and neither team made any sen sational plays. Wenatchee presented the heavier team on the field and the line with Capt. George Harter at cen ter was almost impenetrable. We natchee was weak in the backfield and considerable coaching will have to be done to get the team in shape for the Everett game next Saturday. The Everett team recently defeated the Snohomish team by a score tf 47 to 0, and yesterday succeeded in defeating the Queen Anne high school of Seattle by a score of 16 to 0. The game Saturday was started off by Snohomish kicking the ball to the Wenatchee boys, who immediately commenced to carry it down the field for a touch down, which was made after five minutes by Foster. We natchee failed to kick goal. Everything looked easy for We natchee during that time, the smaller team being pushed off its feet by the bigger boys with their line plunges. Snohomish then began to hold them, and a costly fumble by W T enatchee gave them the ball. They didn't suc ceed in making their yardage and the ball went over to Wenatchee again. Back and forth the lines surged, with the ball in Snohomish territory all the time, but the locals were unable to get it over the goal line, and the first half ended with the score 5 to 0. In favor of Wenatchee. The second half was a short one, only 15 minutes, and Snohomish gave the boys a scare several times. The local boys tried end runs and line bucks, forward passes and cross kicks but with no avail until a costly error on the part of Snohomish got the ball dangerously near their goal, with it in Wenatchee's possession, and the locals put it over. This time the kick for goal was successful and the score 11 to 0. The local team is to be congratu lated on the showing they made for their first game, as considerable raw material had to be developed in a short time, but hard work must be done from now during the season, as they have undertaken some pretty big jobs with Everett, Lincoln high and Spokane high.

HAD TROUBLE IN ENTIAT RAPIDS The Daily World was in receipt of news from Entiat just before going to press that the barge containing the steam shovel to be used on the Brew ster-Oroville line had trouble in the Entiat rapids. A cable snapped in the rapids and the boat and barge seperated in the dangerous waters. The accident happened about 10 o'clock and the barge was not picked up again and lashed to the steamer until about 2 o'clock. The position of the boat for a time was a perilous one and the Wenatchee citizens on board the boat would have preferred being on dry land. Messrs. Olds. El liott, Furey and others from here were on the up-river boat. McMahon Completes New House. M. R. McMahon has just com pleted the erection of a fine resi dence on Spokane and Cascade streets.

Wenatchee's Big Red Apple Daily MIAN FAILED AT WATERVILLE WILL NOT BUILD WATERVILLE DOUGLAS ROAD—WITH G. N. ASSISTANCE ROAD WILL BE BUILT THIS FALL. Frank MacKean, who has been pro moting the Waterville-Douglas elec tive line, left Wterville today but he d'd not carry with him a contract for connecting Waterville with the Great Northern at Douglas. There has been a hitch between Mr. MacKean and the officers of the railroad corporation. J. J. Kennedy and George P. Wiley went to Seattle last week for the purpose of looking into the bond provided by Mr. Mac- Kean for the building of the road and also for its operations. They fonnd the bond for construction satisfac tory but that for operating the road is not satisfactory at an. Mr. Mac- Kean was notified that his bond would have to be perfected and he was given until the latter part of last week for getting this in shape. He returned to Waterville last Thursday but terms could not be agreed upon by Mr. Mac- Kean and the committee, consequent ly all negotiations were called off and Mr. MacKean left the city this morn ing. The road will be built, however, but it will be built by the Waterville corporation assisted by the Great Northern. The following from the Big Bend Empire of last week gives an account of the status of the Wa terville-Douglas road: "A letter was received by the sec retary of the Waterville Railway company this week announcing that the Great Northern would furnish the ties and rails for the building of the Watervlllebranch if Waterville would build and operate the road. Fur thermore, it was announced that they would furnish the rolling stock and an engine temporarily, if neces sary. "The fact Is that the rails and ties are now at Columbia Siding ready for use. "The letter from headquarters con taining this announcement was over looked in Mr. Costello's office, and therefore delayed reaching here about two weeks. Had it arrived without delay there is no doubt but that the road between here" and Doug las would now be nnder construc tion. "In the meantime Mr. MacKean came here and agreed to construct and operate the road and he has been given until today (Thursday) to fur nish the necessary bond. He is ex pected in the city today noon and will confer with the officers of the road at once. If Mr. MacKean does not 'make good' the officers of the -road will call for bids immediately, and begin the construction of the road at as early a date as possible, accepting the Great Northern's offer to furnish the ties and rails. "We have men right here who have done railway contract work, and they are ready and willing to put in their bids for the work. "The road will be built whether Mr. MacKean takes the contract or not, and the trustees have decided to spend no more time with Mr. Mac- Kean or anyone else, but will build the hoad themselves." It Is expected that the power for operating this line will come from the Entiat instead of Chelan Falls as contemplated by Mr. MacKean. Charles Grey, of Grey & Sons, En tiat. has made a proposition for fur nishing the power for operating and there seems to be a good chance of the power coming from that place. Pending the enlargement of the En tiat plant to such an extent as to be able to supply the necessary power, a steam engine will be used, this to be furnished by the Great Northern. WILL BUILD NEW CHURCH CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION SOON TO BEGIN THE ERECTION OF A NEW HOUSE OF WORSHIP PLANS NOW r BEING DRAWN. Plans a*e being drawn by J. W.

Mil WATER THE COULEE HAD- MADE PROPOSAL TO LAND OWNERS TO PUMP WATER FROM COLUMBIA RIVER ONTO COULEE LAND. There was a large meeting of prop erty owners in Winesap last Satur day, being convened for the purpose of hearing the proposal of Frank MacKean, representing a company, having in view the watering of 10,000 acres of land in Moses Coulee. Mr. MacKean stated his proposition which in brief was that he would furnish power, taking it fro mthe Methow for the purpose of installing a large pumping plant on the Columbia river and supplying tbe land owners with one-fourth inch of water per acre dur ing the irrigation season; that he would also furnish water in a one fourth inch pipe for domestic pur poses for the entire season. The cost of maintenance he stated would be $5 per acre per annum for land under the 900 foot level and over that the cost would be $7 per acre per an num. The terms on which Mr. MacKean ".nd his company were to deliver wa ter on the above proposal were that one-half of the land watered would be deeded to the company by the land owners. Mr. MacKean stated that the water would be on the land, if the land owners agreed to his terms, for the irrigation season of 1911. Ed. S. Russell and Percy Scheble, of this city, attended the meeting and Mr. Russell is on the committee ap pointed to draw up a contract on be half of the land owners with Mr. Mac- Kean. The latter's representative will he here tomorrow for the purpose of getting together with the committee On the terms. The people of the Moses Coulee country feel very much elated over the prospects of getting Columbia river water in sufficient quantities for irrigation. GELLATLY FILED FOR MAYOR PRESENT HEAD OF CITY THIS MORNING FILED HIS INTEN TIONS OF BEING A CANDIDATE FOR ANOTHER TERM. John A. Gellatly, mayor of the city of Wenatchee has announced his can didacy for another term. His dec laration was filed with the city clerk this morning and he is the second candidate so far to file with* the clerk, R. H. Nowlan being first. There are a number of other candidates who expect to file their declarations with in the coming few days. Mr. Gellatly this morning gave his reasons for filing as follows: "Having served as mayor for the past two years and received such honors as go with the office, I would not have filed for another term but for the urgent requests of numerous taxpayers (together with a desire of my own) to have the contemplated improvements and those already be« gun carried to a speedy completion "As the city government is a ques= tion of policies rather than politics. I would much rather have filed as a non-partisan candidate, but under the terms of the primary law and the former elections held thereunder it becomes necessary to file under a party name, and I being a republi can have filed under that party des ignation." 6.
