Wenatchee's Big Red Apple Daily
VOL. V. NO. 92.
John D. Atkinson, former attorney
general of the state of Washington,
is in Wenatchee today and while in
the office of the Daily World was
asked concerning the status of the
Wenatchee bridge. Mr. Atkinson
"The proper method for the people
of Wenatchee is to present a voucher
for the payment of the money as ap
propriated in good faith by the last
legislature. If the state auditor re
fuses to pay same by warrant he may
be made the defendant in an action
by mandamus and before the supreme
court of the state. Upon the show
ing that the bridge is in good condi
tion, safe and sound as it is no court
can fairly decide otherwise than to
decree that the voucher be paid. The
report of the state roads commission,
though it has been adverse, cannot
under the law prohibit the payment
of the money when it is known that
the bridge was a good, substantial
structure for the state to buy.
It is altogether unlikely that the
court in such event would desire to
investigate the matter by a commis
sion appointed by itself for that pur
pose or require the complainants to
bring in expert evidence to show that
the bridge is a safe and sound struc
ture in that way to offset the report
of the state highway commission. If
the commission should still stick to
its former report the court might
likely order the highway commission
to make a further and more detailed
In case the supreme court would not
hear the matter originally it would,
of course, then be ordered to be
brought into the superior court and
from there be carried to the supreme
court for review.
Money Will Revert Soon.
"Under the state constitution all
moneys from the legislature not paid
out reverts two years from the first
of April following the adjournment of
the legislature. Under this law only
a little over a year remains in which
to close up this transaction with the
state. It is important therefore to
the people of Wenatchee that action
be taken immediately. The unfavor
able report of the state highway com
mission is regarded in Wenatchee as
a matter that was fixed up before ex
amination of the bridge was made."

A barn belonging to Arthur Gunn

cause of the fire is no known.

Don't Mention It!
Don't say a word about it. because
we saw it before you did and correct
ed it. We mean the mistake in the
heading on the first page of Satur
day's World which read. "Wenat

School." which last word should have
been "Institution" instead. It was
only a mistake of the head setter.
Part of the issue was on the street
before the correction was made.

One of the local results of the
closing of the Seattle fair has been
the great inrush of Canadian dimes
and 25-cent pieces in this section.
Where before Canadian money never
got much beyond Seattle, since the
closing of the fair it has been cir
culating inland and south at an
amazing rate and today a banker es
timated that about 50 per cent of the
small change in the city was Cana
dian coin.
Every effort is being made to get
this money back where it belongs,
and large quantities of it are being
shipped to Seattle for exchange every
week; but so far this has made but
little impression on the supply. The
money passes readily on the streets,
though it is not legal tender of the
realm, and it is hard to collect it
and get it ready for shipment.
Trouble May Result,
If the influx of the foreign coin in
creases some trouble may be exper
ienced by merchants: for the banks
do not like to accept it in large quan
tities. Such acceptance necessitates
its being shipped out again and
when a large sum of money is turned
in to a bank in Canadian form, the
institution is really taking a chance
on getting rid of it. While its in
trinsic value as silver is worth about
the sum it represents in American
money, it is nevertheless difficult to
handle and bankers have noticed that
while their customers do not mind
turning it in. they have serious ob
jections to taking it in payment for
checks. •
Much of the money is also being
sent to Spokane, where it can be aB
readily disposed of as at Seattle. The
local field is gradually being cleared
of it; but should any great prejudice
develop against it. some difficulty of
considerable proportion might result.
Whether American money has gone
to Canada in equal proportions to
take its place is not known here.
Matter of Technicality.
I The only embarrassment that
i might result from too great a supply
of this Canadian coin would be of a
technical nature, and that is really
very unlikely to happen. Should the
merchants and other people insist in
turning in all their Canadian coin to
the banks and retaining United States
small change, so stocking the institu
tions up with the foreign money fast
er than they could dispose of it, and
then should a call for a bank state
ment be made, local bankers might
have some exciting times balancing
their accounts, for in the eyes of the
treasury department, dimes and quar
ters with the visage of Victoria and
Edward upon them are not "real
Of course such a state of affairs is
; very improbable, in fact, it is alm«t
impossible; but it is one of the things
that local bankers are thinking of
I when they have nothing else to wor
ry about. In all probability, they
j say, the Canadian money will all be
disposed of by the first of the year.

Into Town.
Mr. D. J. H. A. Z. Swack Hanner,
Junior, who claims that he is an ex
cannibal, arrived back in Wenatchee
after an absence of several years. Old
Swack is quite a character. He is
known all over the state of Wash
ington. He is a very broad-minded
man—that is, he must be broad, ow
ing to the fact that he is strong on
rambling talk. He is also a philan
thropist, at least we would judge so
from the fact that he never charges
anything for lectures —just takes up
collection at the door of about 10 or
15 cents. The following is an ex
tract of port of his string of talk ver

"Swack" called on the Daily World
early this morning. He reported that
he had made a lecture across the
river last night and was going to
give another one tonight. He expect
ed to call on Supt. Brown to find out
if one of his lectures might not in
crease the knowledge of the members
of the high school. He went from
the World office to see Mayor Gellat
ly. Swack also called on Rev. Beigh
tol, asking if he might have the
church in which to hold one of his
lectures but apparently did not meet
with success. Swack Hanner always
takes his inevitable turn-down with
the spirit of a martyr.

court of Chelan county this week,
having exchanged places with Judge

Wilson Creek, Nov. 1. —The most
important movement in the history
of this section of the Big Bend coun
try, having for its object the elimina
tion of spring floods, which have in
past years damaged Wilson Creek
and neighboring towns, and the con
serving of the water which flows
through Crab creek valley each
spring, was started this week,
The widening and deepening of the
channel of Crab creek has been un
dertaken by owners of swamp land
formerly known as Crab lake, to
draw off the water which comes
down from the high plateaus in the
spring. John Rumsey has been
awarded the contract for $4000.
It is understood the Great North
ern is backing the scheme, as the
work will relieve the company of a
large annual expenditure for repairs
to washed-out tracks and result in
revenue* when the large areas now
lying waste are utilized.
The work embraces the construc
tion of reservoirs at the head of the
canyon. Walls of the canyon * will
furnish the material. The flow of
water down the valley during the
spring floods is enormous, and ample,
if stored, for all irrigation purposes.
Between Odessa and Adrian there are
now thousands of acres lying idle
and practically valueless on account
of the annua] inundation.
With the launching of the "Yak
ima" the big boat of the Columbia
River Improver ent commission, yes
terday afterno< :i, the work of the
commission wa 'eally started. While
a few details yet remain before the
start up the river can be made, Capt.
Fred McDermott. executive commis
sioner and the man who will have di
rect charge of the work, stated today
that he expected to leave for the up
per river work on Thursday.
Beyond about fifty people of We
natchee who gathered to see the big
boat take the water no ceremony
marked the inception of the work.
All was in readiness about 4:30 p.
m. and when the work was given to
cut the ropes mooring the steamer it
slid down the ways and rested in the
water. There was absolutely no hitch,
and the launching, was one of the
most successful in the history of the
local shipyards.
It had been expected that a num
ber of the commissioners would be
present, as a meeting of the commis
sion is scheduled for this afternoon,
but all of the members had been un
avoidably delayed.
"I am more than pleased with the
progress we have made in fitting out
the boat and the success attending
its launching," stated Captain Mc-
Dermott today. "The machinery is
now practically ready for the inspec
tors, who should arrive today or to
morrow. As soon as their inspection
of the craft is completed we will be
ready to start up the river.
"Our crew is already assembled
and our supplies for several months
will be placed on board in a few
days, so that as soon as the inspec
tors have finished their work we ex
pect to start for Foster creek, where
the first work is to be done."
A meeting of the commission is
scheduled for this afternoon at the
Commercial club rooms.
Miss Vaughn Received Injuries.
Miss Lillian Vaughn, the well
known music teacher of this city, had
her arm badly injured Saturday
evening at the skating rink. In
some way Miss Vaughn fell, breaking
her arm in two places above the
wrist. Dr. Culp was out of'the city
at the time, but Dr. King set the
arm and this morning Miss Vaughn
is reported to be greatly Improved.

Power company hich he can not in
The contract provides for the light
ing of the city streets by this com
pany at an expense of $117 per month
for the term of three years. v The
council entered into the contract un
der the protest of the mayor, who
believed that the sum is too heavy
for the city to pay at the present
time and owing to the fact that he
has no veto power he deemed it best
to resign under the circumstances.
The question of a municipal water
and lighting system is being discussed
by the people of Leavenworth and
circumstances point to the consum
mation of such a scheme within a
short time. To succeed Mr. Nelson,
J. E. Guntherless has been appointed
mayor and has signed the contract
as passed by the council.
David Keith Sells.
David Keith has sold his five-acre
