Attempted Assassination of Roosevelt
Perhaps the news flashed over the
wires Monday night that Theodore
Roosevelt had been shot by an assassin
at Milwaukee did not come altogether
as a surprise to many people. It cer
tainly did not to this paper. Just such
a possibility was hinted at in these col
umns about six weeks ago. The heat
that the campaign had engengered,
and the fact that Mr. Roosevelt had
frequently been held up by certain
newspapers as a most dangerous enemy
to his country had something to do
with turning poor Schenk's mind. He
had probably read some of these in
temperate charges —no doubt of it
from his own statement —and brooding
over it, as the poor woman did who
had a vision that her babe would grow
up and become a murderer, conceived
it to be her highest duty to cut its
throat while it was yet innocent. Un
der much the same stress of mind,
brought on by reading lurid stories
about what a bad and dangerous man
Roosevelt was poor Schenk thought
by removing Roosevelt he was doing
good. In our ninety million population
there are hundreds of men like Schenk,
with weak, perverted minds,unconscious
sufferers from some brain disorder, per
haps, who develop murderous tenden
cies under stress of circumstances. It
is impossible to guard against their
attacks. And so long as our newspa
pers and public speakers indulge in
the kind of abuse that was heaped on
Mr. Roosevelt we may expect to de
velop Czolgosh's Gaito's and Schenk's.
That Schenk's bullet did not find a
vital spot every right thinking man,
woman and child will rejoice at, and
that Theodore Roosevelt will rapidly
recover and again play his part in our
public life must be desired by all.
Leavenworth Should Have Commissioner
Editor Leavenworth Echo: —
As a citizen and taxpayer I want to
call the attention of the voters to the
importance of Leavenworth having a
representative on the board of county
commissioners. The position has never
been given to a west end of the county
man. For eight years it was held by
a Cashmere man and for the past four
by a citizen of Peshastin. Certainly
Leavenworth, being the second largest
town in the county, is not asking too
much when her people contend that
the county commissioner be given to
her this year. There is no politics in
the office and men of all parties can
unite on the one man who has an
nounced from Leavenworth for that
office. Mr. Carr, candidate for com
missioner on the republican ticket has
given good evidence of his abivity as
a business man since he has been
among us. Let us give him our sup
port. The west end of the county will
want some public improvements in the
coming four years and with a represen
tative on the board she is much more
likely to get what she deserves.
A Practical Man.
Fred Patten, the progressive nominee
for county commissioner has withdrawn
and the county committee has put up
in his place Matt Hickey, of Cashmere,
one of the oldest fruit growers in the
county and a most excellent citizep.
Once a year everyone is asked to
devote one day to the discussion of the

C. M. Mason Sells Rooming House
Mr. Mason sold his rooming house
on the corner of Commercial and
Ninth streets this week to N. Coleman.
The property consists of the house
which has eleven rooms and three lots
and is considered one of the best cor
ners in the town. Mr. Mason takes in
the trade fifteen acres of land on the
east side of the Chumstick, near the
Charles Fox place, about three fourths
of a mile from town. Mr. and Mrs.
Mason will leave about the 25 th of
the month for southern California,
where they expect to locate perma
nently. They are among the pioneers
of this valley, coming here from Mon
tana fourteen years ago. They will be
much missed in the community.

Don't Fail to Read Them so You Can
Vote Intelligently
When the voters of this state go to
the polls at the general election, Nov
ember S, they will be called upon to
vote on three proposed amendments
to the state constitution. On the bal
lot these amendments will be so briefly
stated that, unless the voter makes a
study of the amendments in advance,
an intelligent vote can not be cast.
At least two of the proposed amend
ments are of vital importance and ev
ery voter should study them closely
before casting the ballot. They are
of just as much importance, perhaps
more important, than the election of
certain state and county officials.
The least important of the amend
ments simply removes the bar that has
prevented county officers from serving
more than two consecutive terms.
However, the county treasurer is ex
cepted, the amendment still holding
the treasurer to the two consecutive
The second and one of the more
important amendments provides for
recall of elective officers, with the
exception of superior court and su
preme court judges. For state officers
and county officers of the first
second and third class, the recall
petition must be signed by 25 per
cent of the voters. In the case of
state senators or representatives, a
precinct, school district, or city offi
cials, the recall petition must contain
the names of 35 per cent of the voters
in the district.
The third and, perhaps most im
portant of all the amendments is that
providing for the initiative and referen
dum. This amendment requires the
repeal of two different sections of the
present constitution and so will be
stated in two questions and require two
This amendment provides that an
act may be initiated by a petition of
10 per cent of the voters, but in any
case not over 50,000 voters. For a
referendum a petition of 6 per cent
of the voters, or in any case not to ex
ceed 30,000 signers, is required.
The amendment is long. There are
many points in it requiring considera
tion and every person should give it
close study.

Essentials of Good Paving
The great growth of the good roads
movement on this continent has
brought the important matter of paving
material strongly to the attention of the
public. The people demand better
pavements than formerly, and munici
palities realizing the importance of
well paved, well kept streets, are much
more exacting in paving requirements
than they used to be.
What is demanded now is paving
which will approximate as nearly as
possible the combination of durability,
non-slipperiness, noiselessness, resil
iency or elasticity, dustlessness, easy
drainage and economy. The pave
ments most in use are brick, granite
blocks, wooden blocks, and bitumi
nous compositions. All of these have
their merits and also their drawbacks.
None of them approach the ideal pave
ment as closely as that which is known
as bitulithic.
The brick pavement, for instance, is
noisy, and must be laid with special
skill and care to prevent, under the
action of heat and cold, a heaving up
and settling down, leaving many
cracks. Granite blocks are also dur
able but noisy and lack the quality of
rebound. Wooden blocks, since the
discovery of the creosoting process,
have good wearing qualities, but be
come slippery when covered with mud
or frost, and require such large tribute
from the forests that their use is disap
proved by those who believe in the
careful conservation of natural re
Bitulithic pavement, which is com
posed of hard rock, broken fine, and a
specially prepared bituminous cement,
seems to solve the problem of paving,
approximating the ideal combination
of qualities mentioned above. For
ten years it has withstood the most
rigid tests of usage anh has so com
mended itself to municipal engineers
that it has been adopted in over two
hundred cities in the United States
and fifteen in Canada. The many
beautiful boulevards and avenues upon
which it has been laid prove that it
has a fine appearance, and the fact that
these thoroughfares are practically im
mune from the necessity of repair un-
der normal conditions, proves that bit
ulithic has that staunch durability
which means economy. —Vancouver,

Good Things to Eat
depends first upon the careful preparation
of the food; but the final result depends
entirely upon the utensil in which it is
cooked. You know that aluminum is the
lightest metal known, and one aluminum
kettle which is lighter than another must
of course be much more pure, therefore
when you think of getting a piece of
aluminum ware be sure to see our
"Wares That Wear"
brand, for while it is not quite as cheap as
the ware mixed with other metals, it is far
more pure. Just come in and let us show
you the difference. You know it is guar
anteed for 15 years. See our window
