NO INCORPORATION Leavenworth will Remain in the Future as in the Past, a Village At a public meeting hekl in the Ral ston building on Wednesday nrght ii was decided by an overwhelming vote that incorporation was undesirable at this time. It has been stated in these columns that as a matter of courseit tho Great Northern railroad company Dppoted the movement very few would favor it, as Mr. Hill hr.s such a vigor ous anil emphatic way of making his displeasure known few care to lead an opposition to him. Mr. Otto Donaldson as the personal representative of President Hill assured tho meeting ihat Mr. Hill would oppose the Incorporation of Leavenworth un der any circumstances. With this as surance of course there was nothing for those who had favored tho proposition but to submit, and after some little de lay in getting tho matter properly be fore the meeting a motion was dually made and seconded that Leavenworth do incorporate. This was very prompt ly and emphatically voted down with out discussion. A noticeable and rather peculiar feat ure of the meeting was tho absence of many of those who had previously de clared that they favored incorporation. After the defeat of the motion to in corporate a motion was made at once to adjourn wlitch was put and carried without a call for a division, showing that tho sentiment was with the oppo sition. I>i illi oT "I i». .lull ii •.on Some three weeks ago this paper made ment'on of the fact that Mrs. Nancy T. Johnston, mother of I. N. Johnston, hail arrived here from Gene see, Idaho, and that Bhe would make her home for the future with her son. This week it is the mournful duty of the Echo to announce the death of Mrs. Johnson on last Monday at 7 p. m. She was 88 JTUri old in December last. She had not complained of feeling sick dur ing the day on Monday last, and late in tfee afternoon retired saying she felt tfered. A little while before the hour of .7 o'clock she waked up from a sleep and again remarked that she felt tired, and that she believed she was going to die and a few moments afterwards, as quietly us a tired child would go to sleep, she passed Irom life unto death, without a murmur, a pain or a strug gle. Her life went out like the light of an exhausted candle. Mrs. Johnston leaves three eons and one daughter. A son, S. W., in Oltum wa, lowa, I. N., with whom she was making her home, and who lives about two and a half miles east of Leaven worth, Mrs. Elizabeth Reese, of Gene- Me, Idaho, and Millard P., who lives in Asotin, Wash. Funeral services were held at the. residence of I. N. Johnston, conducted by Rev. Govc. Tho remains wne interred on Thursday last in the Leavenworth cemetery. To the friends and relative! the Echo extends ils most profotind sympathy. < liurlty Tliliikrlli no Kvll If there is no thought of evil in man's heart, there will bo no condemning words or judging of others, ami even words thoughtlessly spoken will be kind, not cruel. It is such an easy matter to start ev.il reports of anyone. And while n good reputation may bo harmed by a person who has neither truth nor honor in4iis own heart, a truly good character can not be touched by the falsehoods Uttered in a spirit of 'envy, hatred or malice.' I have seen the statement, "Reputa tion is what tho world says about you, but character is what you are." It is very easy to start a damaging report of a good man, or woman, or even of a child, and, when once started there are many who will believe it, and it may dMtroythe influenceof a true and noble life for a time awl kill for a season the good they might do others. A true character cannot be harmed by false reports but stands in Its integrity before God, untarnished and secure. J. A. R. State Auditor Atkinson dropped in on the Echo yesterday and stopped long enough to say that his friends all over the state feel very .f a/iguiue about his oandldaey far the jgOTsnaorship. The Hon.iohn D. reflected the satisfaction which this assurance gave him, In his countenance. Mr. Atkinson is always welcome in Leavenworth by friends whoso number is legion. ■ Miles M. Sorenson, who left aliout the lirst of the year on a visit to his old home iti Minni'sota, returned Monday. He says lie enjoyed his trip and had a good time. While away he visited the southern and eastern htates and return-, ed by way of California. Ho will lake' his old place with V.

LOSEKAMP. 25 Per Cent WENATCHEE ITEMS Wenatchee is counting on a building boom of considerable proportions. The Big Bend farmers say that the quantity of snow and the lateness of the fall will almost insure the another big crop of wheat. In the future the Echo will contain a letter from Wenatchee each week, which will give to our readers the im portant happenings at the county seat. While in Wenatchee this week the Editor was told that ]X)lilics were warm ing up down there, ami that if the tem perature of the elements warmed up as fast as politics the (.now would soon be gone from the valley. There has been some complaint among the merchants that the volume of business for January arid February his not been altogether satisfactory. The severity of the weather and the un usual amount of snow has no doubt kept many people out of town. While the snow has almost dissapear ed from the main thoroughfares, on the less frequented streets the ground is still covered with snow. More snow has fallen in-and around the town this year than for several years past. There is every indication that winter is broken hut spring work among the ranchers will begin at least two years later than last year. It is currently reported that the Hon. Mr. Fields, of Stehtkin, will be a can didate for lieutenant governor so as to arouse county enthusiasm and divide the Chelan county vote between him self and Mr. Atkinson. Mr. Fields may possibly have the support of a few dele gates ftom LaJ;eChelan region but his work is too coarse to deceive the bal ance of tho comity. Srhool Election Tomorrow. An election will be held to-morrow at the school Jtioupe to elect a successor to Mr. L. G. EnglUh, whose term of office expires by limitation. The election of some one whose interest in a good school will prompt him to take an in terest in school matters'is earnestly de sired by a large numher-of the patrons of the school. Mr. EngU^i, the Echo is informed, declines to serve longer, and it becomes necessary to select a new member.

Af ter spending the winter of 1902 heio he left last June for Alaska. He aUo hail a brother who lived here for a time but now lives in Seattle. By an omission of the reporter the names of Misses Phelan and Pomeroy were omitted from the list of invited guests to Mii-s GUl's farewell parly. The ladies at the party presented Miss Gill with a souvenir spoon representing the town of Leavenworth to which she responded in a very neat speech of ap preciation of tho many friend* she was leaving. She ordered the Echo sent to her homo in Oregon. The Degree of Honor held an inter esting social session on Wednesday night after tho conclusion of ihe busi ness routine. We understand it was to celebrate tho return of that popular member, Mr. Niles Sorenson. A num ber of visitors were present from neigh boring lodges. From Mission were G. W. Lessenger and Mesdames Ai-ehie Manson and John Kuelbs, and from Wenatehec, Tho Misses Padoshek. The affair was as enjoyable as the Degree's socials always are. George Pratt, superintendent ol the state fish hatchery at Chiwaukum was in town last Friday aud attended the farewell party given Miss Gill who is an old friend and acquaintance of his. Mr. Pratt is one of the most competent men in the state in his line of business, consequently the Chiwaukum hatchery has been a grand success under his management. He has many warm friends in Leavenworth and placed his name on the subscription list of the Echo that he might keep in touch with them.
