Wenatchee's Big Red Apple Daily VOL. V. NO. 93. uiesi iin COAST 11 US CONFIRMING REPORTS SHOW NORTH COAST TO BE SUBSID IARY TO C. P.—SURVEYORS NOW IN EAST WENATCHEE. ■ That the North Coast railroad which is surveying through the Col umbia river valley is a Canadian Pa cific subsidiary corporation is evi denced by a statement of a former Wenatchee citizen who was in the City yesterday. For the past two or three months the rumor has been gaining ground that the North Coast road, whose operations have been so veiled in mystery for the past two years, was being backed by the Can adian Pacific. The statement of this man was that years ago he was told by a prominent eastern railroad man that he had recently been in Europe interesting capital for a network of roads in the state of Washington. The statement was made at that time that the road would be called the North Coast and while it would be backed by the Canadian Pacific yet the big Canadian line would not be known as its backer. This has been worked out along the plan as out lined. For the past two years the North Coast has been operating in the west, spending millions in ter minals in Spokane. Portland. Seattle and Tacoma. In fact more money has been spent in purchasing ter minals and right of way than has been spent in actual construction work, but now that terminal facili ties have been secured in the cities it would appear that the North Coast is Teady for extensive building opera tions. Terminal stations having been Secured in Portland and now that the North Coast has located a line along the Columbia river it would seem that it is the object of this road to drain the Columbia river valley by way of Portland. Just how Wenatchee is to be served by the North Coast road is not as yet evidenced. The survey follows the east side of the river most of the way. While surveys were run on l oth sides of the river from the cross ings near Kennewick the west side survey was abandoned at Rock Is land. It is said that engineering problems on the west side of the river were a great deal more serious than those of the east side and from the fact that the survey was con tinued on the east side of the river it is believed that that side will be used by the North Coast. From conditions as they now stand it is highly evident that this line will cover the upper Columbia valley, in ' eluding the Wenatchee country, and connect with the Canadian Pacific main line some place north of here. One bunch of surveyors, however, has been surveying in the Methow valley and another along Lake Chelan with the evident intention of seeking a pass through the Cascades to the west side. Both these iatter parties from what can be learned, it is be ■ lieved, are Great Northern engineers. The surveyors now along the Colum bia river seem to be heading straight for the Canadian border and it does not seem improbable but that there will be a railroad on each side*of the Columbia river between Wenatchee and Canada within the next few years. c Robert Strahorn, the man of mys tery, who is at the head of the North Coast system in this state, made the statement in Spokane to a Wenatchee resident last month that by the middle of February active con struction work would be commenced on the line along the Columbia river. The surveys as being made are final. Railroad men all concede that the surveys made by* the Strahorn line are the most perfect, ever run in the west. Engineer Hollenbeck. who is in charge of the engineering work in this section, is the man who run the surveys in the Yakima valley on which construction work has already started and the surveys along this river are also final and are ready for building. The camp of the North Coast surveyors is located about 8 miles up the Columbia river on the east side, and it will be moved in a few days closer towards Orondo. Probably Bridge Columbia. From all that can be learned it seems probable that the North Coast! STILL ANOTHER DE FECT! DR. L. E. HUTCHINSON, OLD STANDBY OF TAMMANY, TO BE WEDDED THIS WEEK TO MRS. ZELMA HINES AT PORTLAND. Dr. L. E. Hutchinson has not fol lowed the usual custom in sending to Tammany the box of cigars which follows the marriage of its mem bers, yet he has left the city and under very suspicious circumstances. Last week he received a handsome black suit which had the appearance of being made especially to grace a bridal ceremony and he also had all of his other suits neatly pressed and cleaned. Though he told no one of his intention of leaving the city, yet Sunday and. yesterday he was absent from his office and from the Tam many board. It is stated that Dr. Hutchinson and Mrs. Zelma Hines will be married in Portland today or tomorrow. Following the ceremony a short trip will be made to Califor nia and they will not return to this city until the latter part of the month. Dr. Hutchinson is one of the best known young men of this city, hav ing been engaged in the practice of dentistry for the past three years in the city. The bride is one of the pio neer residents of the city and is a sister of Mrs. Frank Reeves and Dr. Culp and has a host of friends in this city. Though every effort has been made to keep the marriage se cret yet it has leaked out. as such things usually do. DRANK TOO MUCH CIDER James McComb was arrested last night by Officer Nelson for being drunk. This is the first arrest for drunkenness in several weeks. The officers were naturally solicitous to know where the booze came from. Mr. McComb stated that early yesterday morning he took a small drink of whisky as he was not feeling well and thajt during the day he took a number of drinks of sweet cider. The officers know, however, that what ever McComb took it produced the real old-fashioned drunk and Judge Palmer assessed a fine of $20 and costs against him. which he paid. Water Damages Basement- Water from the street last night flooded the basement of the Wenat chee Electric company. This base ment has been remodeled and fitted up for the superintendent of the com pany. The water from the street caused quite a flood in the building and some means of draining the street at that place will have to be made. The electric company has greatly improved the interior of the building by recent changes, both up stairs and down stairs. Mr. Gunn stated this morning that while the changes add ed considerable to the appearance of the building yet they were not very expensive as he has hopes of build ing a brick structure on the lot next year. TEN ACRES, $10,000 L. H. Moss, Recently Here From Chi cago, Purclia-sed Sunnyslope Taret, The William H. Tigner ten-acre tract on Sunnyslope was sold yester day through the Christenson & Denis ton agency, to L. H. Moss, recently here from Chicago. The Tigner place is one of the handsomest on Sunny slope. Five acres are in bearing and the other five is planted to young trees. There is a good house on the place and is is considered a good buy for the price. Mr. Moss is a recent arrival here from Chicago, but likes the Wenatchee valley so well that he has decided to take up his permanent residence here. will bridge the Columbia at Wenat chee in order to get to the Chelan country side, where the bulk of the population is at the present time and where it may have a fair show with a competing road. It is not improb able that a depot will also be estab lished on the East Wenatchee side together with railroad facilities. THE WENATCHEE DAILY WORLD, WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1909.

During the past summer Mr. Wright has visited all of the fairs in the middle west and had with him an exhibit for the company. J. B. Valentine came in today from up river, where he has piloted a party of eastern capitalists over the Met how valley. Mr. Valentine is now en gaged in developing power plants in several places in the Methow valley and is doing much towards the devel opment of the upper country. J. H. Miller and George R. Fisher will leave tomorrow for a duck hunt ing trip at Moses lake. The ducks are reported very plentiful in that section this year and some good bags have been made. DISTRICT DISPLAY TO SPOKANE. j North Yakima.

John Bobb. who has been employed on the Waterville-Douglas railroad branch, had an experience yesterday morning with a dynamite cap which caused him the loss of several fingers and a portion of his right hand. He was getting ready to load a hole with dynamite and in handling the cap it exploded, taking o ffthree of his fin gers and badly injuring his hand. He was brought down yesterday on the Wenatchee-Waterville train and placed in the care of Dr. Culp. Dislocated His Shoulder. W. B.

BUILDING MAY BRIDGE- COLUMBIA RIVER TO ELIMINATE MUCH COSTLY ROCK WORK ON OROVILLE AND PATEROS LINE. Seattle, Nov. 2.—Great Northern engineers today turned over the Wa terville branch to the operating branch and a mixed train service was inaugurated between Wenatchee and Mansfield. Work on the branch be tween Oroville and Pateros was start ed last month and an impression is gaining ground among Hill officials that a bridge will be built, either across the Okanogan or Columbia river, and the line connected with the Waterville branch, instead of be ing continued 40 miles down the Col umbia to Wenatchee. One of the strongest arguments for this theory is that the line down the Columbia to Wenatchee will be an extremely expensive piece of road. There is a great deal of rock work on the Wenatchee extension and the road would have to be carried down the river through a partially unpro ductive country and with high preci pices on each side, which could not be negotiated by a wagon road ap proach to the railway tracks. Extension Costs Little. The Great Northern's new line be tween Columbia Siding and Mansfield runs through a rich wheat country and can be extended at a compara tively light expense to connect with the Oroville branch at either Pateros or Brewster. It is not believed in any pf the Great Northern circles that the com pany intends to haul produce out by way of Oroville and then back to Spokane over the Spokane Falls & Northern. A connection with the Waterville branch would offer an easy solution of the operation and traffic problems and the fact that the We natchee extension has not been au thorized is interpreted to mean there is a strong possibility of its being abandoned at least for several years. AVENUE PROPERTY IS ID A. J. LINVILLE AND BROTHER-IN LAW PURCHASED NORTHEAST CORNER OF WENATCHEE AYE NUE AND KITTITAS STREET. A. J. Linville and brother-in-law recently here from the east, pur chased the northeast corner of We natchee avenue and Kittitas street to day from Guy C. Browne. The sale was made by Walter M. Olive and the price paid was $7,500. The new owners plan to at once erect a cement block building. The lot is 50x125 foot and the new build ing will occupy the entire lot and will be two stories in height. ■HI KM HI Two werkmen employed on the First National Bank building re ceived bad falls this afternoon. They were working on a scaffolding over the sidewalk and the plank broke, precipitating them both on their heads onto the cement sidewalk. They were carried to the office of Blake & Schiltz and their injuries attended to. It was thought at first that one of the men. Charles Wilson, was severely injured, but with the exception of bruises and severe bumps both men will be all right in the course of a couple of days: The names of the men were Charles Wilson and Frank Repler. H. W. Otis and O. J. Smiete, of Peshastin, are in the city today. S. S. Barney came in today from Peshastin on business.

Case and daughter, Miss Effie. of Entiat, passed through the city eysterday to spend the winter with their son and brother in Idaho. Wenatchee's Big Red Apple Daily CHANGE NAME TO APPLEDALE NAME OF STATION ON MOSES COULEE ORCHARD TRACT BE LONGING TO WENATCHEE CITI ZENS. Messrs. Russell, Bousquet and Pogue have desired very much to give the name Winesap to the station located on their place in the Moses Coulee. The name Winesap. how ever, had been appropriated by a community up the Columbia river and the postal department has sanc tioned the name for the postoffice at that place. In order to avoid con fusion the Great Northern officials thought it best not to use the name Winesap for the Moses Coulee sta tion, so asked the owners to desig nate some other name. After several conferences the name Appledale was agreed upon and this was approved by the Great Northern officials and was formerly given to the station which it is hoped will become quite an important place in the years to come. So far there is nothing but a sidetrack to designate Appledale. but the Great Northern will build neat stations all along the line of the Wa terville-Wenatchee branch and in the course of a short time it is expected that Appledale will have a neat sta tion and a row of warehouses. < -helan 0, Waterville O. Chelan. Nov. 2.—Chelan high school played a tie game, 0 to 0. with the Waterville team Saturday. DAILY WORLD DID NOT LIE Jack Seaman, who returned Satur day from a summer spent in state road work near Easton, stated this morning that he received the Daily World during the entire summer and read the various accounts of im provement work going on and gen eral air of prosperity in the valley but said that he considered that a great deal of the stories were hot air. Since his return, however, he has con cluded that the papers have not over drawn the accounts of the general prosperity of the Wenatchee valley this year. Mr. Seaman stated that though he had been gone but five or six months yet he seemed like a stranger in the city. Dozens of peo ple that he meets on the streets every day are strangers and the city looks very much different than it did when he left in the spring. First Sight of an Auto. Percy Walker and N. M. Streeter drove to Moses lake last Sunday in Mr. Walker's automobile. They were on a sight-seeing trip and took in a great deal of the lake country. They left Ephrata yesterday morning at S o'clock and arrived here just at noon, making the 72 miles in four hours. The trip was over the Big Bend pla teau and they spent half an hour in Waterville. They were accompanied home by J. H. Miller, who spent a day at Moses lake. While in the Moses lake country Mr. Walker had the pleasure of dis playing his machine to a sheep-herder in that section who had never before seen an automobile. The man was much amazed at the iron monster and did not care to get too close to it. Snow was falling pretty heavily in the Big Bend country yesterday when the auto party passed over it. Racing for First Location. Spokane. Nov. 2. —Two parties of engineers employed by the Northern Pacific Railway company and three crews connected with the Chicago. Milwaukee & Puget Sound Railway company are racing for the first lo cation of a line into the timber belt on the north fork of the Clearwater river in northern Idaho. The Hill people have located a line on both sides of the river from Ahsahka to Dent. 15 miles, and is extending it up the stream on the north bank. The Milwaukee engineers have locat ed on the north bank between the points named and are now working on the south fork. Eastern and western lumber companies with ex tensive holdings along the river are obliged to remove the timber within a specified time and the railroads are necessary to handle the products. G. B. Kinney, of Peshastin. is a business caller today. 5c PER COPY. RATIONAL Cf- FIB 10 CO 10 JAIL DISTRICT COURT OF APPEALS HOLDS GOMPERS, MORRISON AND MITCHELL GUILTY OF VIOLATING COURTS DECREE. Washington, Nov. 2.—The district | court of appeals today affirmed the j decree of the supreme court of the j District of Columbia, adjudging Pres ! ident Samuel Gompers, Secretary Frank Morrison and Vice President John Mitchell of the American Fed eration of Labor guilty of contempt of court in the Buck stove and range case, Chief Justice Shepard dissenting from the opinion of the court on con stitutional grounds. The coart held the fundamental issue was whether the eexcutlve agencies of the govern ment should be obeyed or denied. The mere fact that defendants were officers of organized labor In Ameri ca, said the court, lent importance to the case and added to the gravity of the situation, but should not be per mitted to infiuence*the result. "If an organization of citizens, however large." the court held, "may disobey the mandates of the court the same reasoning would render them subject to individual defiance. Both are subject to the law and nei ther is above it. If by the decision though he may be honestly believe his rights invaded ani may elect when and to what extent he will obey the mandates of the court and re quirements of the law as interpreted by the court, instead of pursuing the orderly course of appeal, not only the courts but the government itself would become powerless, and societj would be reduced to a state of an archy." I Tbe action of the supreme coutJ ;of the District of Columbia in sen j fencing Gompers. Mitchell and Mor : rison to twelve, nine and six months' ! imprisonment in jail, respectively. , was a result of the failure of these ! three defendants to obey the order ■of the court directing them to desist from placing the Buck Stove and Range Co. of St. Louis on the "Un -1 fair list" and prosecuting their boy ! cott against the corporation. Government is Too Poor. R. F. D.

He | offered to carry it for $100 per | month, which is about the lowest any ione can carry it for and come out 'safe. The route is 32 miles, and 'there are over 100 boxes on it. As I the government seems too poor to j pay the rural carriers living wages, jthe patrons are talking of making up the $25 needed. Of course if it was |a ship subsidy or building some bat tleships, the government would have | plenty of money to give away, but when it comes to paying for honest work where the people get real bene fit it hesitates.—Douglas County : Press.
