CHARLES JOHNSON Republican >"omlnee lor Kepresenta iln I mm 4'lK'lan <<>linlj—A Lulls and Honorable <arcer Cnpt. Charles Johnson, republican nominee for representative from Che lan county, was born in Suilivan coun ty, New York in 1842. He received his I i education in the common schools, and a j i practical education in merchandising I and tanning, (his people being exten i she tanners and merchants). At the outbreak of the civil war lie enlisted as private in the 56th regiment of New York infantry and served to the end of the war. He was promoted through the ditferent grades to captain of his company, the last promotion oe ing for gailuntry on the lielil of battle. At the battle ot Honey Hill, S. C. Nov. 30tb, 1S(!4. he lost a leg while leading his company, which retired him from active service during the rest of the war, and was mistered out with his regiment in July, 1865. At the close of the war he entered the mercantile business in his native town, which he followed for a number of jean, He has been a life-long republican, and has never once waivered from his allegiance to that party. In 1874 he was nominated for representative by the republicans of his native county and was beaten only by a few votes in a strong democratic county. In 1880 he removed to Wayne, Nebraska, and engaged in the mercantile business there. In 1886 he was elected auditor and clerk of the county, served one term and declined a renominalion, hav ing decided to emigrate to Washington. In 1888 he settled on Lake Chelan then in Okanogan county, and was elected one of the first commissioners of that new county. Upon arriving in Wash ington he engaged in fruit raising and mining, and with patience and perse verance and the expenditure of many thousands of dollar?, be has developed one of the best mining properties in eastern Washington. He is a pioneer of Chelan county and has always been prominent in the upbuilding of the Lake Chelan country, and is thorough ly acquainted with the county and its needs. Seven Political Co«t» George Turner has worn (-even polit ical coats in seven years. The colors were: 3896—Republican; sound money; pro tection. 1800 —''Silver" republican; free silver. 1897 Populist; unlimited free silver. 1900—Bryan democrat; free silver; imperialism. 1902 —Turner democrat.indescribable. | 1904—Parker gold bug democrat; Standard Oil; free trade. 1904—Turner corporation buster democrat. Has any man in this nation, who ever rendered any real service to the people, ever made such a record as that? What one ever had any political existence af ter one or two flops'! 1 Stephen A.Doug las tried twice and was extinguished. Horace Greeley tr.'ed once and was an nihilated. General J. B. Weaver tried twice and passed into obscurity. And what does George Turner deserve be i side such men as those?—Tacoma New ; Herald. Found With Slolin i .mir With a term in the state peniten tiary staling them in the face Henry Strademler and George Clay pool were laken to Waterville Tuesday morning where they will be called to answer a charge of cattle stealing. HenryStrad emier has been living for some time on the Fred Patterson place near Water ville. For the past month he hss had some stock to sell. On Friday he phoned to Wenatchee to Chas. Harlin asking him to come up the next day as be had some cattle for bale. Mr. Harlin was unable to leave <m that day but on beinsr in'ormed that he had tho stock at the heail of the can yon near Waterville and was without feed for them Mr. Harlin agreed to go uu Sunday and take a look at them. Accompanied by his brother,D. G. Har iin. he met Slrademier and his rider. Claypool. and made a deal for the stock. They arrived at the upper ferry at it p. m. Suuday. Monday morning they drove them to Wenatchee. The fact that in the drove of twenty five head sixteen brands were repre sented was enouuh to arouse suspicion The action of the men sis" EMMd thcn> Ito be suspected. Mr. Harlin who had received notice of stock being missed accordingly notilied F. S. Steiner of | Waterville, secretary and treasurer of the Eastern Washington Protective As sociation. Warrants for the arrest of the men were issued and they were tak en in charge by Sheriff Keller. The cattle which are now in Hnrlin's yards have been found to be from dif ferent parts of the state, pome from Ephrata, <(irae from Moses Coulee and some from the vicinity of Waterville. There is a reward of $300 offered by the protective association for informa tion leading to the arrest and convic tion of anyone s-tealinjt stock from any member of the association. This re ward will be claimed by Mr. Harlin.— WenaUhee Republic. !• • Wise, Pound Foolish Democ racy In the last democratic congress,elect ed in 1892, largely on (he ispue of econ omy. the only items of national expend iture where there was any large money saving was (or the navy and for coast defenses. Appropriations for the former were cut down $9,000,000 and for the latter $:3,000.000. Yet notwithstanding such diminished expenditures in the means for promoting the safety and prestige at the nation, this s-ame ooQgreM was pennywise in this way only to be pound foolish in many other diiections. with the net result ihat fop the first time in the history of the United States the to tal appropriations ran above the billion dollar mark. It is a matter of histori cal record that the last democratic congress was the lirst uciual billion dol lar congress. Parly Kerord* In every national campaign far forty years past the republican party has stood upon its recorJs of thing-, done, of laws enacted, of policies established un der which the country has progressed and prospered. The record of the dem ocratic party made in two administra tions was so full of disaster, of commer cial shipwreck, of industrial paralysis and business failures that its chief bus iness in recent years has been to get as far away from its record as possible. Mr. Parker, Democratic nominee for President, has never journeyed west of Buffalo, N. Y. What does lie know of the great west, its people,their achieve ments, their possibilities, their needs? How can he reconcile the demands of the different sections, and decide great aneationf properly and for the good of the whole country? Of limited experi ence, a narrowed horizon, he is not comparable with Theodore Roosevelt, who has traveled the country over.lived east and west, knows the people, the country, and is a President of tbe peo ple not controlled by Wall street and its influences. Some superextra cultured persons down east have been much shocked at the loose and careless way in which the president has been Ufing the English language in some of his speeches. In one of them, delivered in Boston, too— he began 13 unlucky sentences with the word "now," and he used the phrase "have got"' 11 times. Worse than that, the chief magistrate of the nation actu ally split an Infinitive. When President McKinley was first inaugurated in 189 C business and com mercial depression prevailed through out the country. Within two years af ter the passage of the Dingley tariff law there were established MS new in dustrial plants and 108 existing plants were enlarged; the new ciipital invest ed amounted to $40,-149.<'50, and the number of additional employees to 37, --2a">. Such ligures as tln'=e tell their own slory. With every prospect of gaining a re prieve and eventually a commutation to a short term of imprisonment. JmM Webb, a Pennsylvania murderer under sentence for the murder of his wife and mother-in-law, has declared in his cell at the Moyamensing prison that he wishes to die and by his own act ha> cut off his one chance of escaping the gallows. When hU attorney went to the prison with the documents needing the convicted man's signature, Webb refused to sign, and said he wanted to die on the gallows.

STEINER ——- ~~ Jonrph Bartholomew Pay* Ills Be" •peels to (he Saintly Water vlllr Lawyer According to the following story told by Joseph Bartholomew, stage driver between Waterville and Bridgeport, R. 9 Sieiner, the democratic nominee for judge of the supeticr court, is not the saintly creature a ?mall boterieof popu listic republicans in tliis town picture him: "Early this spring on learning positively that about 18 or 20 business men of Waterville were holding home steads upon which they had not com plied with the laws of the ccuntry,l de cided to contest odo of the claims and finally picked the quarter section held by W. H. Fraser, a blacksmith in Wat erville. Fraser filed on the homestead April G, 1900, but he never lived on the place until after April 9 of this year, the date upon which I instituted my content. For four long years Fraser held the claim, yet he did not pretend to comply with any of the regulations provided by by the U. S. land laws. He was holding the quarter tecUOO as a speculation and continued his residence in Waterville without interruption. I wanted a homestead and was eager to comply with every law in order to ob tain one. My only alternative was to contest oh'e of the elctms held by the Waterville speculators. "1 then went td K. S. Slelner and asked him if he would lake a contest case. He said he would. I told him I wanted to contest a piece of land. He said be "wanted to kn'nv who !t wus against —that it might be one 6f his clients. I told him it was Henry Frftser. He replied he did not consider Frriser one of his clients and would take thfv , case. He al6O wanted to know what I could prove. I told him what I could substantiate: there were two witnesses I had not yet seen that I was satisfied would substantiate the testimony of ttif other witnesses. '■I then asked Steiner what he would charge for his services and he said $5(1. I lolil him the fee was nil right and to go ahead. Then he urged me to notify the two witnesses I had not yet seen and he would proceed to get the papers out. I went out into the country about ■•20 miles to interrogate the two wit nesses referred to and came back to town the next day. I immediately called upon Steiner and informed him that everything was already and that we could easily make our case good. To my j^reat surprise Mr. Steiner slated he had so much work to do that he could not possibly take the time to bother with my case. He said in con clusion: 'I will tell you this much, Bartholomew, you have a good case.' "Being unable to secure the services of any lawyer in Waterville to plead my cause I went to Wenatchee anil employed an attorney and when my contest case dually came up for a hear ing before the U. S. land office in Wat erville in May of this year Tt S. Stein er appeared as attorney for the defend ant. W. H. Fraser. While I was out in the country looking up my witnesses the 18 or 20 Waterville people who were illegally ho.ding homesteads for speculative purposes,on being informed ny some one unknown to me of my in tention to content Henry Fraser's home stead, got together and organized what is called the WaterviUe Homesteader's Union. One of the members of thii? or ganization—formed for no other v\it pose than thwart the aim and intension of the homestoart laws of America—lias since told me that Mr. Steiner is the. legal adviser of the nefarious Union."' —Bridgeport P6rt.
