A WONDERFUL PROGRAM
r vents Scheduled for the Interstate Fair
of Extraordinary Merit
Little do the people who propose |
visiting the big Interstate Fair, which ,
opens on Monday, October 5, realize
the length and magnitude of the amuse
ment program that has been prepared
for them. In summing up the ar
rangement of the grandstand events,
Manager Cosgrove has discovered that
time is the only thing he has to beat
to give Interstate Fair visitors the
greatest show ever presented in front
of a grand stand. To crowd the many
features into a single afternoon or an
evening is no easy task, and only an
expert would dare attempt it. With
three running and two harness events
scheduled for each afternoon, it would
seem almost an impossibility to find a
place on the program for six or eight
classes in the horse show, to exhibit,
for the always sensational relay race,
the balloon ascension and parachute
leap, the air ship flights, the exhibition
drill by Companys H and I, the Parker
Troupe of trained ponies, Fink's Long
Eared Circus, the marvelous St. Georges
in their aeriel casting exhibition, Mme.
Barnes and her trained lions, leopards
and pumas, the Zeb and Zarrow Troupe
of comedy bicyclists, the miners' rock
drilling contest, and some six or eight
other attractions, even lack of space in
this paper prevents mentioning.
The same is true of the evening
program, as in addition to the after
noon program of vaudeville and circus
attractions, there will be presented each
evening Pain's latest success and what
has been pronounced his masterpiece
—the Eruption of Vesuvius and Carni
val of Naples —which is concluded with
a pyrotechnical display, alone worth
going miles to see. The Interstate Fair
has grown rapidly and is recognized as
the peer of all fairs in the west, but
this year should place it in a class by
itself, as never before has there been
offered here, or elsewhere, for one ad
mission, an entertainment so novel,
elaborate and expensive as will be the
fair of 1908.
ACTIVITY AT RED MOUNTAIN
Extensive Development Work With Ample
Financial Bat king Going On
John Miller returned from the Red
Mountain mining district last Saturday
and tells us that development work on
the group of claims in which the
Lamb-Davis people aie interested has
resulted very satisfactorily. A vein of
mineral about eighty feet in width with
satisfactory surface values was encoun
tered. The amount of development
work now going on in the Red Moun
tain district and the satisfactory results
obtained indicate that in the near
future some paying mines will be
found there. Every practical miner
who has visited the district predicts a
glowing future for the Red Mountain
mines. Twenty-five miles of a gap re
mains to be rilled to put the district in
direct communication with the world.
The Chelan Consolidated is pushing
its working tunnel to a large ore body
day and night with men and machin
ery. A car load of new machinery for
the Chelan Consolidated was received
here this week and will be hauled to
the mines at once. The tunnel is
now in a depth of approximately twelve
hundred feet.
Edward Ellis, manager of the Chewa
wa Lead and Smelting Co. has a force
of men at work developing his company's
property. Altogether the outlook for
the district is most promising.
Major J. S Chase, of Seattle, deeply
and confidently interested in mining
property in the Red Mountain mining
district spent several days here this
week looking after the transportation
of two cars of mining machinery and a
saw mill plant to the camp of Chewawa
Lead and Smelting company's prop
erty. The machinery consists of a
large compressor and air drilling out
fit which will be operated by water
power, the pipe and machinery for
which is included in the shipment.
His company is engaged in developing
a group of valuable mineral locations
in the most promising mineral belt in
the st«te
Wm. Rice has undertaken to super-
intend the transportation of the raa
chiaery and began sending it out this
week.

A Nauseous Monopoly
To remind the people of the state
of Washington that they are in the
vise-like hold of a heartless monopoly,
composed of institutions, that are pop
! ularly supposed to be the champions
lof American liberty, will doubtless
startle many. That such is the case
will be seen from the present trend of
affairs as shown by the three large
daily papers of the state. The exact
date of the nefarious compact is im
material, but its existence became
j painfully evident to the manly mem
bers of the last legislature when they
tried with might and main to get a law
upon the statute books of the state that
i would forever prevent the papers pub
j lished within its borders from being
real schools of crime, by the heartless
intimidation and the threats to which
they were subjected. Senator Graves
of Spokane had the clearness of vision
to see the terrible danger to which the
youth of this fair state is subjected by
the publication of detailed reports of
crime, social evil and its long train of
blood-sucking vipers, and the patent
medicine deluge, upon which the daily
press of the state depends for hundreds
of thousands of dollars annually that
are literally filched from the purses or
their unsuspecting readers. This mo
nopoly with one blow of its murderous
club successfully felled those who would
effectively protect the home from such
insidious assaults. Its next brazen
assault was upon the three largest
cities of the state, all of which were
captured by its policies of villification
and misrepresentation of every officer
and policy that did not promise humil
ity and profit to the monopoly. Spo
kane, Seattle and Tacoma for nearly
two hears, have been in the grasp of
the Cowles, Wilson and Perkins com
bine and every policy of any real im
portance to the people have been dic
tated by these three men. The first
step in the control of the state was
taken when they decided that Senator
Ankeny was to be slaughtered, as a
move in the elimination of Senator
Piles two years hence, to make room
and place for the Wilson member of
the combine in the United States sen
ate, and to enable the other two to
dictate the patronage of the state.
There is not a county, city or town in
the whole of Washington that has not
been blighted, directly or indirectly,
by this combination during the past
two years and it is probably true that
every community in the state will feel
its strangling grasp more terribly than
ever. Young men of the state, if you
would serve the good people of Wash
ington in any of the several positions
of honor or trust for which you may
desire their suffrage, prepare to get
down and crawl before these fellows
who are too dishonest to decline ad
vertising that is smeared with the blood
of innocents, who are insensible to the
dictates of common decency, and
whose insane ambition it is to rule a
million of free people for their own
aggrandizement, for until their rule is
broken, you can have absolutely noth
ing without their favor. Mr. Business
man, you of the cowardly caliber, who
do not dare to spend a farthing of your
advertising appropriation in any but
these filthy channels that are so laden
with putrid matter that your customers
must hold their noses as they wade
through the mire to the place where
you have deposited your tribute of
cowardice, is it pleasing to know that
you have yoked your neck to the wheel
that is making an exhibition of you and
your business. And you, Mr. Citizen,
who were led by the nose to the mu
nicipal ballot box, and are now follow
ing the same hand to the general
election ballot box, has the blood of
your forefathers become so impotent
that you cannot stand up and act as
well as think for yourself? The laws
that go upon the statute books at Oljrm
pia next January will be dictated by
Cowles, Wilson and Perkins, and every
office in town, city, county and state
will be filled by men wearing the collar
of the combination if the people do not
rise in their might and break it. Every
ordinance affecting the appropriation
of the people's money, particularly in
the three large cities of the state will
fail of fruition if the combine is not
first appeased. No railroad can enter
any of these cities that does not first
make its peace with the combine and
no company now operating street rail
roads can extend its lines without se
curing its permission. This same in
fluence is extended to the humblest
(The Xcavcnwortb l£cbo»
lines of business, and none of them are
safe who are unwilling to render the
larger share of their profits to this heart
less combine. That such a condition
could exist amongst liberty loving peo
ple of Spokane, Seattle and Tacoma is |
due to the fact that they have been so
busy with rendering their full share in
the upbuilding of the state that they
have not observed the stealthy approach
nor realized the subtle power of this
debasing combination. No voter can i
go far wrong who goes exactly the op
posite to that candidate or policy that
is championed by the combine, for
they will not take an active interest in
any person or movement that does not
promise substantial returns to them. —

SOHE STATE COLLEGE NOTES
College Opened This Week With Increased
Attendance and Larger Quarters
Several hundred students have al
ready arrived in Pullman, and the
town is rapidly taking on the appear
ance of the "college town," which it
is for nine months of the year. Many
families have moved to the seat of the
State College during the past few
weeks, and at present there are very
few unrented houses on College and
Faculty Hill. The homes which have
been built up in the new College
Park addition south of the campus dur
ing the past summer have relieved
the situation quite fortunately, and it
is thought by local business men that
there will be no serious lack of rooming
facilities this year.
All of the new buildings, except the
large auditorium, will be ready for use
by the student body by the time the
{all term opens on the 24th inst.
College Hall, the recitation building,
Van Doren Hall, the domestic science
building, the new wing to the veterin
ary hospital, and the electrical labra
tory, will be occupied during the fall
semester. All the construction work
on these buildings, except a few de
tails of the interior finishing, is now
complete. The steam connections
will be installed this week.
Among the important faculty
changes is that of the headship of the
Forestry Department, in which Mr.
Christian H. Goetz takes the place of
Mr. E. O. Sieche, lately resigned.
Mr. Goetz has degrees from the Uni
versity of Michigan; Pacific University
of California; and the Michigan Agri
cultural college. He has spent a year
and a half in the Philippine Islands,
and later traveled and studied forest
conditions in California, Oregon,
Washington, Arizona, New Mexico,
Michigan and other states. He is
lately of the U. S. Forrest service at
Silver City, New Mexico.
We Lay us Down to Sleep
We lay us down to sleep,
And leave to God the rest;
Whether to wake and weep
Or wake no more be best.
Why vex our souls with care?
The grave is cool and low —
Have we found life so fair
That we should dread to go?
We've kissed love's sweet red lips,
And left them sweet and red;
The rose the wild bee sips
Blooms on when he is dead.
Some faithful friends we've found,
But they who love us best,
When we are under ground
Will laugh on with the rest.
No task have we begun
But other hands can take;
No work beneath the sun
For which we need to wake.
Then hold us fast sweet death.
If so it seemeth best
To him who gave us breath
That we should go to rest.
We lay us down to sleep;
Our weary eyes we close;
Whether to wake and weep
Or wake no more, He knows.
Sorry He Died
The lawyer was drawing up Enpeck's
will. "I hereby bequeath all my
property to my wife," dictated Enpeck.
"Got that down?" "Yes answered the
attorney. "On condition continued
Enpeck, "that she marries within a
year." "But why that condition?"
asked the man of law." "Because,"
answered the meek and lowly testator.
"I want somebody to be sorry that I
died.

Label All Water Pipes
Label all water pipe stop cocks in
the cellar so that in case of accident
there will be no difficulty in turning
off the right one quickly. Write plainly
on baggage checks such guides as
"Cold water in the kitchen," and
"Hot water in the laundry," and tie
these tags close to the stop cocks. It
also is well to fasten to the wall near
the water and gas meters full directions
for turning off the supply of water and
gas from the entire house in an emer
gency. If a leak is sprung in one
pipe it is then a simple matter to run
to the basement and turn off the water
in that pipe.
