Since a good route for a highway between Wenatchee and Ellensburg has been found which is practically free from heavy grades, every effort should be made to have it construct ed as speedily as possible. Chelan and Kittitas counties form one sena torial district and by all means there should be easy means of communica tion between the two : counties. A good road would also encourage the growth of business relations be tween these two jurisdictions. Since the coming of the automo bile and its growing popularity there would he a constant travel over this route and, without doubt, it would be found profitable to operate a mo tor stage from Ellensburg to We natchee. This stage would be pa tronized by traveling men and by theatrical companies. If it were pos sible for theatrical companies to reach Wenatchee by a good motor service from Ellensburg, it would be possible for our theatrical managers here to book high class attractions more frequently. Another consideration should not be lost sight of. The North Yakima country is an older settled commun ity than is the Wenatchee valley and a larger number of prospective land seekers and investors are naturally attracted there flrst. To get to the Wenatchee valley from there involves an expensive and roundabout jour ney. With a good roadway and a motor service, on the other hand, many would make the journey into north central Washington who other wise would be more likely to visit the fruit sections of Oregon from there. From a business point of view, cry consideration points to the urgent need of a good roadway be tween the Wenatchee valley and the Yakima country, and autoists, real estate men, hotel men, and others should use every endeavor to have immediate steps taken to effect the construction of this roadway. When Roosevelt heard the news of the action of the Ohio convention, his brow wrinkled and he had noth ing to say. Wonder why he did not give an immediate expression of en dorsement to the convention's work? The colonel has never hesitated be fore for words to express his convic tions; in fact, it is customary for him to express his opinions before the other fellow has finished speak ing. As a matter of fact it would require a man constituted on the plan of a champagne fizz to enthuse over the laudatory endorsement of the Payne-Aldrich tariff bill which the Ohio convention gave. Progressive republicanism scored a point in the Nebraska state con vention. That state is anti-Cannon and anti-Aldrich to the core and will send a progressive republican to the United States senate when the legis lature meets in January. In Ohio, on the other hand, its standpat senators controlled the con I. J. Browne, Pres. Guy C. Browne, Vice Pres. M. Horan, Vice Pres. Frank D. Case. Asst. Cashier Charles E. Ow?ns. Cashier.

WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON vention and it was chary of accept ing progressive republican ideas with the exception of a plank on the ques tion of conservation. The Ohio re- publicans have a heavy burden to carry this year inasmuch as Senator Dick, who is a candidate for reelec tion lent his name as president to a bunco mining proposition which separated the guileless from their coin. The convention did not en dorse his candidacy. If Governor Harman, a democrat, was elected two years ago when Roosevelt and Taft enthusiasm run high, which resulted in the election of Taft, God only knows what he will do to republicans of Ohio this year who are carrying the burdens of both Cannonism and Aldrichism. o It is noticeable that the platforms of both republican and democratic conventions in the east and middle west speak in unmistakable terms on the question of national conserva tion. They do so because the peo ple of both parties are in favor of it. o VIEWPOINTS OF THE PRESS. Things Have Changed. Can some of you stadpat editors who scoff at the insurgents, account for the continued increase in the pro gressive following. A few months ago LaFollette and a few others were about the size of the insurgents, but now look at the hundreds of thous ands of them. You surely don't mean what you say brothers. —Davenport Tribune. Big Year in History of Chehalan County. It looks as if 1910 would go down in the history of Chelan county as its wonderful year. Progress and improvement have been racing hand in hand to golden goals of prosperity. City and country alike have forged forward with unbroken pace. The people are well aware that the way to make money is to spend money, and that the judicious expenditure of public funds for justifiable im provements is an investment that re turns a heavy percentage of profit. Consequently Cashmere, Chelan city, Leavenworth and Wenatchee have spent hundreds of thousands on their streets and buildings. Mean while the railroad from Leavenworth has nearly reached Wenatchee Lake, the scenic highway around Lake Che lan has been started, thousands of fruit trees have come into bearing, other thousands of new ones have been set out, thousands of arid acres have been redeemed and isolated Peshastin has grown into a center of civilization. It is doubtful whether any equally remarkable developement has occur red in the west in so short a time as this. —Spokesman-Review. The Peopels' Turn Next. As was expected the standpaters controlled the Spokane county repub lican convention and turned down Poindexter in his own town. But that the people will turn the conven tion down at the September primaries by supporting Poindexter is a fore gone conclusion. In Grant county the same conditions exist, Wilson men controlling. It looks as if it would be repeated in Lincoln county. What explanation will the county bosses make to the people when Poindexter rolls up a big majority vote in these counties? If the people do not en dorse the actions of the conventions by returning a plurality vote for Wil son then the convention manipulators will be branded as would-be bosses, for whom there is no place. If the Wilson machine wins out, in these counties, which is not at all probable, the rest of the way will be smooth sledding. It looks as if "some bodies" were staking all on a single throw. —Big Bend Outlook. No Clue to Girl Found in Search. Newport, Ore., July 28.—The mys tery of the skelton of the woman found in a sack on the beach a few days ago is still unsolved. Efforts to connect the bones with dlsappearace of Sophia Nois, the young woman who disappeared from here six years ago mysteriously, is so for unsuc cessful. From relatives who came here and viewed what remains of the body it would appear th"t the bones are not those of the missing girl. The authorities are still investigating the mystery. THE WENATCHEE DAILY WORLD, THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1910. LADY MAYOR OF QM Wenatchee Would Have All Kinds of New Fan gled Ideas. What a dream of a city we will have when the women voters elect women councilwomen and a woman mayor! The streets will shine like the morning and the cobblestones will bloom out in fragrant beauty. Playgrounds will take the place of > lumberyards; the ugly dirty factor ies will give way to beautiful parks and fountains will play "O Promise me" at every corner. The policewo men at the crossing will wave her fan and wagons, teams and cars will move to the rythmic beat like an or chestra. The locomotive whistles will be tuned, the car gongs will tinkle like the chimes of the Swiss bell ringer and no automobile horn will | pass muster until it sounds like a [ symphony. Clean streets, clean politics and clean collars and cuffs —they will be among the first demands. The streets must be dustless, the city gov ernment graftless, the skies cloudless Men will be required to wipe their feet before stepping on the sidewalks and horses will be fined If they kick up the dust. Mirrors at every street corner, free powder puffs and munici pal ownership of hair dressing par lors are not at present included in the demands. These things must come gradually. The report that the city ordinances will be crocheted is untrue, and the inclination to tie a sash around the city hall and surmount the dome with a big butterfly bow will be curbed. The demand for free moving picture shows and lemonade fountains in the parks will not be urged at present. But reform in ice cream and cheaper chocolate drops are demanded. Why should these reforms be de layed by inconsiderate men holding on to the city government and deny ing women the right to vote? "One half of us are still in bondage!" ex claims one of the leading suffraget orators. It is pathetic to see these bond slaves going through our prin cipal streets clad in silks, satins and laces, carrying the burden of the man's purse in the man's automobile and spending the man's money; while the tyrant is enjoying the privilege of of digging away in his office or fac tory. Released from bondage, freed from the galling yoke, they faithfully promise to take charge of things and run them. Our cities have too long been run by ordianry looking men, some of whom are not even good dressers. If we had a women for mayor, the city would have to take a bath and a clean shave every morn ing. It would be kept well brushed, with all the buttons sewed on. You can see the vision of it now —a model city, clean, well dressed and highly perfumed.

Don't let it slip your mem ory that you should tais paper reguLt,/. RAISE PEDIGREED APPLE TREES Sunnyside Nursery Issues Certificates for Thorough bred Orchards. The science of raising the quality of fine stock, cattle, horses, hogs, etc., by breeding, has been placed on a scientific and practical basis. The results have been so universally beneficial that no up-to-date stock man will own any animal whose pedi gree is not registered. The same idea has often been suggested as ap plicable to nursery stock. But most nurserymen have scoffed at the sug gestion as impracticable. One of these idealists in this state, how ever, is an enthusiastic devotee of the thoroughbred tree and this man is in Wenatchee today for the pur pose of getting acquainted with lead ing orehardists and to make arrange ments for securing scions from trees bearing prize winning fruit. H. M. Lichty, of the Yakima-Sun nyside nursery, was seen by the World representative this morning and gave his views on the pedigreed fruit tree. "We have been experimenting for some time on raising the thorough bred tree for market. Success has come with recognition by the or chardist of advantage to be gained in following our suggestion. A strong demand has been created in Yakima- Sunnyside district for the pedigreed apple tree. "Our method is this: We visit every district where prize fruit is produced, just as I am now getting acquainted here in your valley. In every superior orchard, one or two trees are prominent for yielding most of the ribbon winners. For in stance, J. M. Neslie, of North Yaki ma, is a persistent winner of prizes on Rome Beauties year after year. Mo3t of his plate prizes come from one particular tree. We have taken 700 scions from this one tree. The same plan is pursued everywhere. "Now these trees are all recorded and when sold the purchaser is in structed to make a plat of his or chard showing the location of each tree. This plat is then deposited with our office, the tree registered and a pedigree issued. It is not claimed that all the trees so grown will produce prize winning apples any more than all pedigreed stock will wear the blue ribbon. But ex perience does show that a greater percentage of high grade trees are raised by following this common sense system than in the old hap hazard way." The state college at Puliman has stamped its approval on the thor oughbred tree. Prof. W. S. Thorn ber, of the horticultural department, said at the state meeting in Wenat chee last winted: "Some variation is common in some form or other in every orchard and the practical orchard man may readily improve his product by bud ding and grafting from superior stock. There is just as much differ ence between peach and apple trees of the same variety as there is be tween cows and hens of the same breeds. And if a man would have the best there is, so far as trees are concerned, he would have the scions taken from strong, healthy, regular bearing trees that produce fruit of the highest color and best size rather than from young unhealthy trees of doubtful bearing habits for that va riety." H. M. Gilbert, the largest producer of the Yakima valley, and Mike Hor an's chief contender for the title of apple king, writes his opinion to Mr. Lichty: "Permit me to compliment you on your plan to raise thoroughbred nur sery stock. For some years I was a little skeptical as to there being su perior strains of any particular va viety. I thought particular excel lence in certain trees could be ac counted for by cultivation or special care in pruning and fertilizing. But I have been compelled to change my mind. I have two blocks of Wine sap apples on the same 20 acres, probably 30 rods apart. The Wine saps on the south slope, with the same care, grow as most Winesaps in the valley, a little fiat in shape. The Winesaps on the north slope grow a little larger and Bellflower shape, making a better show apple and perhaps a little better in qual ity. This difference is not confined to single trees but is common through both blocks. "Our company exhibited at the National Apple Show the Peter King Baldwins grown in the Selah last year. They easily took the prize over a large number of competitors, and were greatly superior to any thing grown in this section. "The car of Rome Beauties ex hibited by the Richey & Gilbert com pany at the National Apple Show of 1909 were grown by J. A. Bourgaize, and comprised a little less than one half the crop grown on a single acre. These were very superior Rome Beauties, the acre bringing the grower $2150. "There are many other instances that I might mention, but these are sufficient to prove to me that there are superior strains of the various varieties. I should certainly much prefer buying trees grown from stock of acknowledged excellence. I certainly wish you success in your enthusiastic effort to cultivate and propagate the best strains of our Yakima apples." A CIRCUS ACT AT THE 1909 FAIR. It used to be that when a fair secre tary bad arranged for three or four horse races for each day he considered that ali the entertainment necessary had been provided, but nowadays far visitors demand all sorts of amuse ments. One of the features of the Spokane Interstate Fair amusement program is the circus and vaudeville acts. Eight to ten of these acts art put on twice daily in front of the big grand stand, and none but the very best in the business are used. Among the turns already engaged for the Fair to be held Oct. 3 and 0 are a troupe of foreign acrobats called the Steiner troupe, a whole herd of trained goats which will come clear from Washing ton, D. C. and last, but not least, the two funny tumblers with their team and load of hay who. three years ago. played so many comical pranks on the race track while the band played "Tur key in the Straw."

The south room in the World building is beginning to assume the _=The=— "Don't Need To" Theory In a recent debate at Reno Mr. James Jeffries failed to convince Mr. John Johnson. Some seven or eight years ago Mr. Jeffries was the leading man in his line of work. Business was good and his profits were big. Having all the money he could handle at the time, he concluded to take a rest. To be sure, he planned to get into t lie field again at the proper time. But everything was rosy and there really seemed no good and sufficient reason why he should spend so many hours a day keep ing his muscles lithe and strong and his wind good and his heart and nerves in trim. Eventually the meeting with Mr. Johnson was arranged. Mr. Jeffries was still tolerably content with what fie had done. (Brother, a has-done is about as bud as a has-been.) Mr. Jeffries did not care to stand up in the training ring and punch and take punches. He did not see any necessity of practic ing side-steps and feints and rushes. He knew all about them. Why, seven years ago he had done all of that he ever needed to do. Mr. Johnson did not overlook the boxing and the wTestling and the clinching and the sidestepping, etc. As a result, Mr. Jeffries received Mr. Johnson's compliments on the point of the jaw and his business career closed. Advertising a business is the training of that business. Advertising keeps a business healthy. It tones up its liver, strengthens its biceps, steadies its heart and keeps its nerves in order. Once in a while a man decides that he is doing so much busi ness that lie can stop advertising for a while and run on mo mentum. Momentum is the gradual process toward a full stop. The momentum business is usually prematurely full-stopped by the straight left jab of the well-trained competitor who finds his opening in the fifteenth round. If you want to stay in business stay in the advertising field. No matter how much business you are doing, keep up the energy that makes it. You might as well cut off your legs because you are running well in a foot race as to cut off your advertising because your busi ness is too good. You might as weU teU the insurance man that you are so healthy you will drop the policy for a few years as to stop advertising be cause the orders are piling up. "Don't need to" is the eventual preliminary to "Can't do it." The only man who doesn't need to advertise is the man who has retired from business. The only policy holder who doesn't need to pay his premiums is dead. Mr. Jeffries doesn't need to train any more. He is licked. THE WENATCHEE DAILY WORLD appearance of a postoffice.
