'" Cliitf of Record*. !,- - DIGGING PANAMA CANAL ■|lu.uniiii<l« of <iilnpne, Japannic and PlllllpplllOM Mlllll tin' J()b, Hilt Admiral Walker Will Kmploy Amcr icaiiN Between twenty and thirty thousand laborers will be employed in digging the greatest cunal on earth. It wilt re quire four 1 months and the labor of over 3000 men 10 put the whole canal zone from Colon to Panama in a thor oughly- sanitary Condition. First the whole country will be ditched and drained, and then an elaborate system of water works will be installed. Pure water will be conveyed in pipes to both terminals anil all the small villages be tween. > The whole country is at pres ent a hotbed of tropical diseases. The laborers will be housed in insect proof houses. ! Great quantities of insect powder and crude petroleum have been shipped there to be U'ied in exterminat ing insects and mosquitoes. It.is be lieved what was done for Cuba under American occupation can be done for Panama. Probably twenty million dollars could bo saved by employing cheap labor, but this is contrary to the policy of the pres ent administration. Another serious problem which has been presented to the commission is the question of the employment of labor. | Thirty-two propositions have been re ceived from companies employing Chi nese labor, offering to furnish the gov ernment coolies to be employed on the canal at a cost of 02 cei.ts for each la borer per clay. The companies guaran tee to feed and clothe the laborer.-*, their propositions contemplating the impor tation to Pauama of largo quantities of clothes worn by tho Chinese at home, together with cargoes of rice and such other articles of food as they are accus tomed to. It is also proposed to con struct bamboo houses for the Chinese laborers, aud the companies agree to return the bodies of all Cbinamen who miiy die on tho isthmus to their nu. ive country unless death should be caused by some contagious diseaso. It is nec essary for the compani sto guarantee to return all the bodies of dead Chiua men to their native country in order to induce the celestials to go toPamima. Another proposition has been submit ted to the department by Lieutenant C. O. Thomas, of the quartermaster's de partment, United States army, who re cently supervised the construction of the military post at B&tARgM, Philip pine Islands, and is now tupervlilng the construction of the now post at Los Banos. Lieut. Thomas recently asked authority to take 2000 Filipino laborers to Panama to work ontho canal. lie offered to supply skilled carpenters at $1.50 per day and rations, stone masons at $1 per day and rations, and laborers at 7~> cnnls per day and mtions. He re ports that he has employed Filipino la bor almost entirely in the construction of military posts and roads in the Phil- Iplnei and that it has proven exception ally offlcient. The bridges and other public works constructed by Filipino labor have been pronounced by engi neers to be the equal of anything con structed in the states in point of work manship. The secretary of war lias forwarded the proposition to Admiral Walker. Similar propositions have been re ceived from Japan, the Japanese offer ing to furnish skilled mechanics at $1 per day and laborers at 05 cents per day. The Porto Uicans are particularly anxious to assist in iho construction of Uncle Sam's great ditch. Thousands of applications have been received from Porto Rco requesting employment. It has been urged as a reason why Porto Rican labor should bd employed thai the island is today impoverished and that it would be a gracious thing on the part of Uncle Sara to employ Porto flicans, thus furnishing the idle on the island employment,which in turn would furnish relief to thousands of families that are now practically deslitutn. It is also argued that the Porto Ricans are acclimated and would thus prove i..uch more efficient and valuable to the gov eminent thau laborers brought from Ihc states. It in understood that a majority of the commission are opposed to employing foreign labor on tho canal. They be lieve that an far as possible American workmen should bo employed. They are ('ally receiving hundred* of nppl! cations from carpenters, stonemasons and laborers throughout the United States for employment. Admiral Walker believes that as the canal is to be an American enterprise that Amer ican labor, as far as practicable, shatild be employed, and that this labor should be properly compensated- while 'he government could save millions of dol lars by employing; Chinese, Japanese and Filipino labor, it U not probable that this saving will bo affected as such a practice would be contrary to the pol icy of the present adminstration which believes in furnishing employment to American workmen to the fullest posi ble extent consistent with the demands of the government, and to see that those workmen are properly compensated for their labor. New wheat is selling at Bridgeport at 01 cents per bushel. There was a grass widow quite proper, who was formerly married to Hopper; but he got a divorce, as a mat ter of course, and the grass widow is now a grass Hopper. A New York dispatch of recent date says. Wm. W. Belvln who has just re turned from Europe, is quoted as hav ing sucessfully negotiated funds there for the construction of the Port Angles Eastern from Junction City to O'ympia. A new mining camp hat been discov ered in the forest reserve near Priest lake and Priest river. The iinds made there are remarkably rich. Free gold and pure galena ore are said to be found in close proximity, and the ore is said to bo paying almost from the grass roots. An exchange gives the following reci pe for preparing a squaw lish: Clean the lish nicely and let it dry for two days in the sun. Nail the fish to a pine board, cover with salt, and it has stood two days longer put in tho oven and bake slowly for six hours. Thea draw the nails out. throw the iish aud board away and eat the nails, which are said to be tho best part. John S. Sharp of Seattle who is the Great Northern tax agent, for this staic, visited Assessor NoDle of Lincoln Co , and toU! him that bis road would refuse to pay tLe assessment as levied Tho road's agent spent several hours in presenting his aide of the quest on. It is probable that the railroad will make a test case from umong the group of counties wboti officials have levied against thum heuvier than they desire. —Davenport Corespondent in Wilbur Sentinel. The most prosperous town is the one whero there is the greatest evidence of local pride. It doesn't require man sions and great lawns and the trapping of wealth to make a prosperous town or city, but ordtr, cleanliness and the evidence of civic pride are an absolute essential. The neat, clean, well kdpt home with evidences of personal inter est, c.eati streets and back alleys free from rubbish, things that may be pos sessed by all save the really unfortu nate, are the things which make a town inviting aDd upon which prosperity in a large measure rests. —Tacoma News Herald. 'Tis said a bottle and glass Will soon make a person mellow, Hut Kooky Mountain 'IVas the Uriuk That livens up a fellow. Has Not Nlopt for over Ten je»r» The Trenton, N. .1., correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer says: "Al bert B. Herpin, the sleepless wonder of Trenton, is still awake, and accord ing to his own statement ho expects to stay awake tlie rest of his; life. Phy sicians who up to the present time have refaloed from making public their opin ions of this strange case now come for ward and vouch for the truth of the story that Herpin is the sleepless won der of the century. Dr. C. H. Wat ers of Trenton says Herpin has taken enough drugs in the hope of obtaining sleep to kill an ordinary man many times over. He says there is not uri other like this. The man is itever ill never drowsy, eats heartily and weigh* IN) pounds. "I have treated Albert K. Herpin for over ten years,"' said Dr. XV A. Van Duyn of Trenton, and his ease stands alone At his request I have s-aid nothing about him till now, but from my observation his case stands alone in medical history. Mrs. C. H.

Abert E.Meade. the republican candidate for governor, will bear rereading by tho voters, who will, and ought to, ponder well who they support for jrovernCr. There are a few papers in the state headed by thu Spokesman-Review, that have endeav to becloud the sittial'on by stating that Mr. Meade was nominated by railroad influenco nnd will oppose •By legisla tion that is not approved of by tho rail-, roads. His statement of what he will do if elected governor, as a pledge, anil his record as a man who will keep hix word has never been impeached, JSL "I want to say in coiint'clipa^^itli any railroad question, or with any Ques tion with reference to the creation of it railroad commission, that I have liv stock in any railroad in the state of Washington, and that no railroad in the state of Washington, or anywhere else has any stock in me: ''1 believe, my fellow citizens, that this question, thi> aarao as any other 1 question, can be settled ami ought to btf sealed, and will be settled through the instrumentality und agency of the re publican party of this state. 1 <lo not believe there is nny necessity or reason why there should be any tectional bit' terness involved. As slated by Chair man Nash in his opening-, the republi can party, from its very infancy, ha» waged war against, sectional lines* "I want to say what I said before and now reiterate, that if a railroad com mission bill, or any other railroad leg islation is to be enacted in this state wo have simply got to pursue the gQod old fashioned remedy of obtaining nuch legislation from representatives of thy people, who sit in the state legislature, and if such legislation is enacted, and if by grace of God and the bUtfrageof the people of the slate of Washington, 1 should be commissioned by the people as its chief executive, I know that I can honestly appoint a commission of repre sentative citizens of this state who will carry such a law honestly and ably iato effect. '•>iow,then, I believe that there is no substantial citizen of western Washing t( n and no republican in western Wash ington that wants to indict any injust ice upon the shippor, upon any farmer or upon any business man of eastern Washington, i know that, all legiala- Uotl, generally t peaking, when it is fir mly 11 iced on the tta; v • tooke.is the re sun of compromise between conflicting loices. I believe I know enough of tho people of western Washington to »ay that they are big and brotd enough and interested in the state of Washington to the extent that upon any fair measure, if the people of eastern Washington are prepared to meet them upon the same ground, they can meet in tho re publican legislature, which will be chosen next to November, aud enact wholesome legislation, denning th« relation between tho people aud the railroad interests of this state. "My friends, if that high honor is ex tended to me by tho suffrage of t!i» people of this state of Washington I want to say in conclusion that when I have taken the oath of office I will owo allegiance to the entire people of tho state of Washington and not to any fac tion or portion of it and property inter ests, or other interest, in any portion of the state."
