Will Keep a Large Force of Men Employed
In Development Work All
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

missioner Otis will move to Wenatchee

Permanent Organization Formed and Com
mittees Appointed to Conduct
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
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.

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.

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.

H. Davis and wife arrived here the

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.

troublesome and annoying affliction
who have been benefitted, if not cured,
in this dry. salubrious atmosphere.
