Will Keep a Large Force of Men Employed In Development Work All Winter Edward Ellis, superintendent of the 'Chewawa Lead & Smelting Co., ar rived last Saturday morning from Se attle and in company with Colonel Chase, one of the directors, and a large stock holder in the company, started for the scene of operations in the Red Mountain mining district. A large supply of provisions, enough to last all winter, has been hauled to the camp. Several additional loads of iron pipe, from four to six inches in diam eter, was taken to the mines last week. It is to be used in developing the water power which will operate the electric generator. The company has ample funds on 1 hand to carry out the development ; work which is undertaken. A number of expert mining men under a com petent foreman have been engaged and will work day and night all thru this fall and the coming winter. Edward Ellis the manager, has had many years experience in practical mining and ranks with the best min ing experts in the northwest. It is not improbable that within a compara tively short time some working mines, yielding dividends to their stock holders, will be in operation. Should , a good vein of coal be discovered in this vicinity, which now seems likely, as several promising prospects are now • undergoing development, smelters will be among the enterprises that may be located here The Wenatchee World says Com missioner Otis will move to Wenatchee ! to spend the winter. ANTI-OTIS MASS MEETING Permanent Organization Formed and Com mittees Appointed to Conduct Campaign In response to a call printed in The Echo last week some twenty citizens, mostly from Peshastin, met last Satur day in the opera house for the purpose of bringing out an independent candi date, or indorsing the democratic can didate for commissioner, from the Second district in order to defeat the election of Mr. Otis, the present incum bent and nominee for re-election on the republican ticket. S. P. Beecher, of Peshastin, was elected chairman and J. W. Corcoran, of the same place, secretary. Both officers were made permanent before the meeting adjourned. On account of the small attendance at the meeting it was deemed best to adjourn to Wednesday evening, Sept. 30, to meet at the same place. E. A. King, of this place, E. D. Shugart, of Chewawa river, Charles Freytag, of Chumstick valley, J. W. Corcoran, of Peshastin, and E. A. Dickinson, who recently came here from the Chewawa river valley, were appointed a commit tee to advertise the adjourned meeting. The meeting on Wednesday night was attended by a very good sized crowd, fifty or more being present. The largest number being from Peshas tin, with a sprinkling from the Chum stick and Chewawa river valleys and Wenatchee lake, and perhaps a half dozen citizens of Leavenworth. A motion was made by Geo. Siverly that G. B. Kinney, of Peshastin, dem ocratic candidate for commissioner from this district, be indorsed and the mo tion prevailed without a dissenting voice, some eight or ten not voting on the proposition. A committee was then sent out for Mr. Kinney and he was in formed by the chairman of the action of the meeting and he stated that he appreciated the vote of indorsement and said if elected he would give every section of Chelan county a square deal in the distribution of the road and bridge funds, and that while this was only a small part of the matter that would come before the court that he would do his best to attend to all mat ters in the same spirit, and further stated that he was going into the fight unpledged to any section or person. This statement appeared to meet the approval of the meeting, which ap plauded the remarks. A committee of ten was then ap pointed to collect funds and conduct the campaign, with authority to do anything that seemed necessary to ac complish the object of the meeting. It was pointed out by some one pres ent that a vigorous campaign in the First and Third districts would have to be made to accomplish the defeat of Mr. Otis, a fact that seemed to be im pressed on all present. It was moved that the name of Sec ond District Square Deal Club be adopted and the motion was promptly passed. The following is the personnel of the committee: E. A. King, J. J. Griffith, J. W. Corcoran, Charles Frey tag, George Siverly, A. E. Dickinson, E. D. Shugart, R. F. Templin, E. L. Meeker and Geo. Grant. Messrs. King and Templin are old residents of Leavenworth, and as stated elsewhere Mr. Dickinson recently came here from the Chewawa valley; Messrs. Griffith, Meeker and Corcoran have their homes near Peshastin; George Grant, Cashmere; George Siverly, We natchee lake; Charles Freytag, Chum stick valley, and E. D. Shugart, Che wawa valley. After the meeting adjourned twenty dollars was voluntarily contributed to the fund to be raised. Wanted to Be Governor For Thirty Years. In an address before his fellow towns man at Pomeroy a few days ago, S. G. Cosgrove, republican nominee for gov ernor, said: I am going to tell you a secret; one that I have never told except to Mrs. Cosgrove. Thirty years ago, soon after our marriage. I said to her, "Some i day I am going to be governor of one i our great states." That has been my , ambition. I have never allowed any thing to swerve me from this course. . I have been twice offered the position of lieutenant governor and once of fered a congressional candidacy, and also a supreme judge ship of this state; but I rejected these and set every thing aside that would detract from the attainment of my one great object. Sometimes things looked dark and I could not see how to proceed, but I never gave up. Coming from this small county, with only five or six votes in a convention, it seemed as if I could not succeed, but finally I saw my chance to go before the people of this state under the primary law and I was successful. two busTMssThanges Dd McCoy Buys Out G. B. Kinney and E. C. Carter Buys Out E. C. Davey On the first of October Del McCoy will assume charge of the mercantile business of G. B. Kinney at Peshastin. The deal was closed this week. Mr. McCoy will also be postmaster. Mr. McCoy has long wanted to quit railroading and this seemed to be a good location. The present pro prietor has always done a good busi ness. The country surrounding Pe shastin is settling up very rapidly with a thrifty and prosperous class of farmers and fruit growers. Mr. McCoy says his wife will be mayor of the town while he expects to act as police man and treasurer. E. C. Davy storekeeper and post master at Chiwaukum was here Mon day. He has disposed of his mercan tile business and hotel to E. C. Carter, for the past two and a half years as sistant roadmaster on the Cascade division of the G. N. Ry. Mr. Car ter is not only considered a good rail road man but has a host of friends who wish him unbounded success in his new venture. After closing up his business, it is Mr. Davey's intention to locate at Deer Lodge, Montana, from which state he came to Wash ington three years ago. He did an immense business at Chiwaukum and will go back to his old home many thousand dollars better off for having come to Washington. May success attend him wherever he goes, is our earnest wish. Hunting and Fishing Party ftUirns Utfth. the Goods A large party returned from an ex tended hunting and fishing trip last Tuesday evening. Five Ellensburg parties were in the bunch that killed among other game ten mountain sheep. Mrs. Geo. Hoxsey is credited with bringing down the largest one, since which her prowess as a hunter has been mightily increased. Of the ten sheep Leavenworth parties claim the honor of getting five. Frank J. Spangle, mayor of Spangle, and his son George were in the crowd, and Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Martin, of this place. The party was out eight days and report a highly en joyable time. A Promise Unfulfilled O. Henry, the well known story writer, once promised the editor of a magazine that he would deliver a short story to him on the following Monday. Several Mondays passed, but the muse was refractory and the story was not fortcoming. At last the wrathful editor wrote this note: "My dear 0. Henry —If I do not receive that story from you by 12 o'clock today I am going to put on my heaviest soled shoes, come down to your house and kick you down stairs. I always keep my promises." Whereupon 0. Henry sat down and wrote this characteristic reply. "Dear Sir: I, too, would keep my promises if I could fulfill them with my feet. —Success Magazine.

STRANDED Manager Skipped Out With Funds and is Arrested in Spokane and Brought Back Just like nearly everybody else, show people have their troubles. In truth, they seem to have more than their share just now. The Good Fellow company arrived last Sunday after playing an engage ment in Wenatchee the previous night, and presented "A Good Fellow" to a fairly good audience in the opera house. By having the property man arrested in Wenatchee, on what appears to be a trumped up charge, the manager, Harry Arthur Dußois, secured possession of the trunks, paraphernalia and some pri vate property belonging to members of the company and took the early morn ing train for Spokane, one member of the company, a woman accompanying him. Of the seven member of the company left here with two weeks pay cominp, two departed for other Melds of endeavor, but five were left entirely without funds. They laid their trouble before the officers with the result that Mr. Dußois was arrested in Spokane Monday night and held pending the arrival of Deputy Sheriff Debord who brought the prisoner here Tuesday night. On Wednesday two complaints were lodged against him charging him with feloniously taking private property. The property man, Ted Rife, who had been arrested in Wenatchee was turned loose as Dußois, the complaining wit ness failed to appear against him. When the cases were called for trial Wednesday afternoon the state took a continuance on the ground that they proposed to produce the- stolen prop erty. One trunk containing some of the stolen property was shipped to Ev erett and the other was taken to Spo kane by Dußois. There is no doubt that Dußois acted in bad faith with the members of his company and was untruthful in his statement to the Spokane reporters. When the show closed here Sunday night the manager of the opera house gave him $75 as his share of the re ceipts. He also stuck up a notice on the curtain telling the members of the company to meet Monday for rehearsal and gave each one the route list for the coming week. By having the property man arrested in Wenatchee he secured possession of the baggage chacks and all the property and after the members of the company had re tired he slipped out of the hotel and took the 3:30 train for Spokane. To further show that his plans to desert the company were premeditated it ap pears he instructed the advance agent not to bill any points beyond this town. Whether the complaints against Dv- Bois will stick we have no means of knowing at this time, but earnestly hope they will, and that he will get a lesson that will be of benefit to him in future. If he had acted in good faith by telling the members the condition of things and divided what money he had with the company his case would not look so bad. M. E. Church Notes Services next Sunday as usual in Fraternal hall. At the morning service the Lord's Supper will be administered. All members should attend. Rally Day next Sunday at Sunday school.

Prayer meeting every Friday night at the parsonage. H. Davis and wife arrived here the first of this week from Mt. Vernon, Wash., and will take up their tempo rary home in Leavenworth. Mrs. Davis is afflicted with asthma and found that the coast climate aggravated her trou ble, hence the removal to this place.
