ON TRAIL SIX PRAIRIE SCHOONERS WERE BLOCKED ON SNOQUALMIE PASS ROAD BECAUSE OF Df> PASSABLE HIGHWAY. Seattle, Oct. 6. —Six prairie schoon ers, bringing new settlers to this state, were stalled recently in Sno qualmie pass, near the upper end of Lake Kichelus, because state con victs, in blasting rock for a new wagon road, permitted rocks and debris to roll down upon the old high way and practically close it to traf fic. Samuel Hill, head of the advisory board to the road commissioner, and Highway Commissioned W. L. Bowl by found the stalled prairie schoon ers while traveling from the upper to the lower end of the lake by ferry. They made a vigorous protest to the foreman in charge of the coftvict camp, declaring that the existing road must be kept open during con struction work. A number of women and children were in the wagon train and many of them were in tears over their predica ment. One of the wagons had broken down and it was necessary to send two miles to the nearest farm house for help, while the small colony of settlers was camped near the summit.. Mr. Hill and his party of road builders completed their trip over the pass yesterday, arriving in Seattle at 6 o'clock last night. Starting from Quigg's camp, ten miles west of Eas ton, the party made forty-five miles over the proposed state road, cover ing much of the distance on foot, a part by team and some in a boat on Lake Kichelus, which they used to skirt the shores and follow the route of the new highway.

A new route around a 500-foot hill just east of North Bend has been lo coted by engineers under Commis sioner Bowlby that will give a water grade in place of the hill ascents lo cated by Commissioner Snow. It cost the state approximately $30,000 to locate the hill road that will be aban doned for an easy grade. Mr. Hill and his party made a trip of inspection over state road No. 10, running north along th eColumbia river to Winthrop. In speaking of this road, Mr. Hill said: . . Splendid Highway. "When two more hills have been cut through the state will have one of the finest highways that has been constructed; a purely water grade road that will open up the entire country north of Wenatchee. On the highway I saw some of the best grade that has been prepared and it was all done by convict labor under direction of a competent foreman. That piece of road demonstrates what can be done with convict labor when it is directed by a man who understands road building and the handling of men. "We name a thorough Inspection of two convict camps to learn the fare the men had, how they were clothed and how they slept. The convicts were all in excellent health and their quarters and fare was bet ter than the average graders' camp supplies. There is, in one of the camps, a lack of proper direction that will have to be remedied. "To make the task of road-build ing successful politics must be wholly eliminated. I want to give Governor M. E. Hay credit for the fact that he is attempting to eliminate all politics from the work, and that he is coop erating with our board to make the road work successful."

Spokane, Oct. 6.—Ministers of Spokane are preparing to take £< hand in opposition to the new mar riage law. "The almighty dollar,' the amount ministers are required to pay on the filing of a marriage ser tificate, is to be made the object of an investigation by the Spokane Miv ibterial association. To secure leg.il advice on the question, President Clarence O. Kimball, of the assocln tron, appointed Rev. M. E. Dunn, Rev. J. H. Bennett and Dr. C. O. Kim ball. Mr. Bennett reported that he had received advice from John Patt: son that it was not necessary for ministers to pay this fee of $1 for the filing of a certificate. W. C. T. P. Officers. The W. C. T.

Phone 1931 APPOINTEE TO ACT AS GOVERNOR M. E. HAY PLANS TO MAKE TRIP DOWN MISSISSIPPI WITH THE PRESIDENT — WILL LEAVE STATE SECRETARY IN CHARGE. For the first time since statehood, Washington will have an appointive governor this fall. And, further, it will be the first acting governor of Washington appointed by the execu tive. During territorial days the Washington governors were named by the president and since statehood there has always been an elective of ficer to take up the reins of govern ment while the executives were away. Gov. M. E. Hay is to leave the state October 20 in company with Adjutant General George P. Lamping to join the Taft party in St. Louis October 24 and to make the trip down the Mississippi river as the president studies the inland waterways scheme of opening a channel from the lakes to the gulf. In Hay's absence the secretary of state will be acting gov ernor. I. M. Howell, the secretary of state, is an appointee of Hay. chosen after Secretary Sam H. Nichols resigned. Under the constitution he stands next to the lieutenant governor in line of succession to the executive chair and will have to act in the absence of a j governor and lieutenant governor. It has happened in the past that a secretary of state was left tempo rarily in charge of state affairs, but he has always been an elective officer. Sam Nichols assumed the responsibil ities during an absence of Governor j Mcßrlde, and once when Gov. Mead was out of the state on a lengthy tour and Acting Governor Coon temporar ily away, Nichols had the same res ponsibility. The principal duty of the acting governor probably will be to sign some notarial seals and possibly to deal with a few requisition papers. There is pending no subject that will compel any important decision on an affair of state. CONTRACTOR VISITS OROVILLE Man Who WiU Build Brewster-Oro viUe Railroad Viewing Survey. Division Superintendent R. C. Mor gan came in Tuesday evening in his private ear, and A. Guthrie, the suc cessful bidder for the contract of building the Oroville - Brewster branch, was his guest. Mr. Guthrie expected to meet Engineer A. F. Whitcomb at this point, but that gen tleman was delayed at Spokane, and did not get In until Wednesday even ing. Wednesday Superintendent Morgan, accompanied by Mr. Guthrie, continued on to Keremeos, where Mr. Guthrie met and conferred with Chief Engineer Hogeland. They re turned Wednesday evening and ac cording to program a party consist ing of Messrs. Guthrie, Whitcomb and others left here Thursday morning in vehicles to drive south over the line of the proposed road. The reporter found Mr. Guthrie a courteous, approachable and commu nicative gentleman. He is a man of ripe age, bearing his years with ease, with a geniality of manner that makes it a pleasure to meet him. He is one of the oldest and largest con tractors in the west and has done much heavy construction work on the Great Northern system in past years. He conversed freely upon the sub ject of the prospective railroad con struction. He stated that crews would work from both ends, and progress made as speedily as possi ble.

He stated that outfits were now on their way from both Minnesota and North Dakota, due to arrive almost any day. He inquired especially regard ing the winters, and expressed the belief that work could be continued uninterruptedly throughout the win ter. His presence here was for the purpose of familiarizing himself with the country and conditions, and he was rather pleased than otherwise that his plans for meeting Mr. Whit comb had gone awry, as it gave him an opportunity to make the run to the front. The actual work of con struction will be done by sub-con tractors and Mr. Guthrie will spend little of his time in the county.—- Oroville News.
