' i SEATTLE, Oct. 28.—The man»ge | ment of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Ex | postiion, determined to have every- ! j thing finished "nd in working order 1 jby June 1, 1909, the opening day, is ® '[ busily engaged on the work on the r I grounds. All of the grading will be 1 i finished by January 1, and several of!' i the large buildings well under way. } The Administration Building has been M completed and occupied for several weeks. The management is fully aware that the success of the Exposition depends 0 upon its being ready on time, and in- a tends to take advantage of every min- a "ute of the twenty months it has in 8 which to have the fair finished. a I The division of exhibits and privi- 8 leges will soon be organized and the 0 work of arranging for displays and c concessions inaugurated. It is the 6 intention of the officials to start this 01 part of their task far enough in ad- v vance so as to have all of the exhibit '« space allotted in time for the exhibit- P ors to have complete installation on 1 opening day. 4! b Convicts build State Roads, State Highway Commissioner J. M. ** Snow of Spokane returned to Olympia si a few days ago from a tour of inspec tion in the Okanogan country, and especially of the work in progress on m the Methow-Barron road. The Met how-Barron road, which is 80 miles tr long, junctures at Pateros with the th Wenatchee and Okanogan state road m which is to extend from Wenatchee cr northeastward t the Canadian bound ary line, a dis- ce of 158 miles, [and ov follows up 11 'thow river to Twisp, be Winthrop a- northerly and west- up erly to Barr the Slate creek min- th ing district vill take five or six th years to co> it, with the funds In that can be ied. in Comti.is! now went over the wl route fron irop to Pateros, a pr distance of »0 miles. He found m< the route .. construction work in accomplis! ly satisfactory. Old pp grades of I to 25 per cent are an being red: ot more than three shj per cent. fas RITZVILLE, WASHINGTON, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1907. "The convict labor camp is located four miles from Pateros," said Mr. Snow, "and I found the experiment proving most satisfactory so far. We have 28 men in the camp, four of whom attend to the cooking and the care of the quarters, and the remain ing 24 working on the road. They are now engaged in cutting the road around a great rocky bluff for a dis tance of a mile a'.d a half, the most difficult piece of work on :he whole road. We had estimated that the con struction of this particular piece of road under the usual contract system would be $9000. but we are expecting to do it with the convict labor with a saving of one-third, or for $6000. Ac cording to our best estimates we are saving $500 a month by the use of convict labor. "And those men certainly do like the work. |rhev want to stay up there all winter and kc-ep at it, and we now exyect to continue the camp all winter. I watched the men at work with the hammers and drills, and they work with a vim day by day that I don't believe would be equaled by paid free labor. The men like the open air, the climate, the certain sense of freedom they enjoy, the absence of prison routine,and - perhaps most of all, the excellent bill o/ fare which would do credit to a good hotel, save in the way of fancy dishes. They are all men whose terms would soon expire anyway so they have nothing to gain by attempting to escape, and so lose the accumulated 'good time' allows ance. They do not wear prison cloth ing, and the only way one of the con victs could be distinguished from any other laborer would be by 'finding the) number appearing on the inside of his | shirt at thcback. The rock work affords a good chance to work the men this winter, as little trouble will be exper ienced from the snow, and we expect' to continue the camp. "We now have thirteen state roads j and twenty six state aid roads under | way ir. all sections of the state, so i there is plenty of work in this depart- , ment and I will be kept out on insjiec-■ j tion trips most of the time."- -Chron* , icle. I, • i Wheat Crop of 1907 100,000,- I 000 Bushel* 'ess than of '06. t The crop reports of the department 3 of agriculture for October are gener . ally accepted as fairly accurate, for . at that time practically al l of the , grain crops of the counrty are matured and thu9 beyond the reach of any . serious damage. The . out this month show that the wheat I crop out of the United States will reach . 625,567,000 bushels, or nearly 110,000,- i 000 bushels the crop of last . vear. The crop at that is considerable larger than the average for ten years . past The corn crop is also shorter i than that of last year by about 45,- 435,000 bushels, although it will still be above the two-billion mark. Not with standing that the crop of both of these falls con siderably short of that of last year, the money value of both crops is much greater, the advance in the price muc'n more than maxing good the deficiency in yield. This is likewise true of cotton, the advanced price on the smnller crop bringing the grower more money than he got on the larger i crop of last year. The farmers' earnings', the country over, therefore, will average *much better than last year, and following up several of good times, will leave them in better condition financially than they have been in previous years. In this state there is double benefit; in a crop of splendid proportions, which also brings a very much higher price than ever before. The actual money returns from the wheat crop i in this state promises to be out of all! < proportion the greatest ever known; I and every industry in the state will share in the good fortune of the i farmer.—Ex. Ii ;ed Will Mcßride be a Candidate for Ir - Governor. «it Ve Discusing the politircal situation in this state the Seattle correspondent to The Oregonian has the following: If a close analysis of the republican re sentiment in this state indicates that ad enr) Mc ßride can be nominated for 3 governor, the former executive will get into the fight. His friends are working on that assurance, and they n are going over the state with a fine -toothed comb to locate the disaffec m [ ed parts and to ascertain whether Mr. Mcßride is strong enough to win * out in the first direct primary contest. c Mr. Mcßride has been told by his friends in different sections that he re can win, and that he is the logical candidate to oppose Governor Mead for renomination. He has been told < e this story so often and so positively re that he is beginning to believe it him 't self. " Those politicians and party men who do not want to renominate Mr. * y Mead are skeptical about the chances S. G. Cosgrove of I'omeroy, would have if left in the fight alone against n the present governor. Th re is no doubt as to Mr. Cosgrove's personal popularity, but close political obierv '• ers do not believe it is the kind of d popularity that'attraets votes. Mr. Ie Cosgrove himself is confident and de ' termined, but he cannot convince the ® close students of public sentiment n that he could win. That is one of ,e the reasons why anti-Mead republicans have been so enthusiastic about the , 1 prospects of Mr. Mcßride's candidacy, ( for he is figured strong where Mr. Cos- ( y i grove is weak. ei < g j The surprising thing about the Mc- j Bride movement is that the great bulk , of his early strength appears to be j shown in western Washington. It was tj to be expected that Skagit county I would forget past differences and t ' come again for him. Enough \ 8 ! leaders of both factions in Skagit a r have been to Seattle to affirm loyalty c 5 tb turn to indicate that he has regained | any strength he lost since his defeat 'in the 19(14 convention. If the men o : who used U know how certain districts C would vote, still have that knowledge o the same is true in most of the west . side counties, a Two seperate canvasses of eastern a Washington indicate that Mr. Mcßride is as strong in that scction as ever, ,'' and these returns encourage him to 11 get into the fight again. 11 Mr. Mcßride has made money both ' l in the law practice and in his lumber investments, and he is now anxious to r< jbe governor. That he will make his 01 ' fight is due in part to the pressure 11 | brought upon him and the fact that he has a longing to reverse the defeat of m 1904. His friends believe that he ot i could have won in 1904 in a direct pri- at mary fight, and they believe he could e< " be nominated now in either a conven- *' tion or by direct primary. It is hard to get a line on Mr. ,KJ Meads' exact and dependable strength. mi It is known that his organization will have the hardest fight of its existance ne in Whatcom county where such lead ers as Hugh Eldridge, Mayor Frank ' ,e Black of Bellingham, State Senator Robert Kline, ex-Fish Commissioner rei T. R. Kershaw, and Fenton H. Mer rill are opposing him. It was report ed several weeks ago that his friends "J among the timbermen were notified Ui that most of those identified with st such interests would fight him, and J" there has been reputed trouble in sev- fo eral of the other counties. aii . th 3 — Three New Town* — 3 «' an Ralston, Revere and Lavista are the ni names of three new townsites platted l'° by the Western Townsite company of Washingon. These towns are on the ro Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road, and it is promised that ample depotsj will be erected by the road at each ati town. S The towns and their locations and ( , resources are described by the company r,u as follows: ' Ralaton is situated 13 miles east of L,ind, in what is known as Rattle in snake valley, one of the best wheat and fruit districts in the states. Its lots will be sold at auction in Spokane on November 21. tn t Revere is situated 24 miles east of Ralston and several miles from any existing town. It is surrounded by a fine farming and fruit country. The sale of lots takes place onNovembr22. e Lavista is at the foot of Rock lake, j 13 miles east of Revere and eight miles , r nor "> St John, its nearest corn*; n petitive point. Rock lake is nine miles long and from one-half to two / i miles wide. The sale has been set for j November 23. Ie ..„ I Our company has just completed i j arangements for the erection of a first! class hotel at JSt. Joe city, Idaho," states G. VV. Morrow. "The building will cost $2D,0011, but the plans have been so made that the big hotel may bo increased at any time. We will start laying the water mains on j Grand avenue immediately . The' •J street grading should be completed j in a week. "C. I'. Pride has worked out the j 0 details for the big paper mill at St. 1 Joe city. The second large sawmill I for the Monarch company will soon | be in operation. Arrangements have I ' also been about completed for the j building of a fine steamboat landing I and for a number of business houses 1 and residences. "The Chicago Milwaukee it St. Paul is building its lines through a territory in which there are already ' transportation lines. It has announced 1 that at all its stations it will build commodious depots with wide plat-1 forms, so that the farmers and ship- J ; pers will be provided for on all occas-! 1 ions. A well-kown authority on Rhema tism gives the readers of a large New York daily paper the following valu able, yet simple and harmless pres cription, which any one can easily pre pare at home: Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half ounce; Com pond K argon, one onnce; Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three ounces. Mix by shaking well in a bottle, j and take a spoonful after each meal and at bedtime. He states that the ingredients can be obtained from any good prescrip tion pharmacy at small cost, and, be- a ing of vegetable extraction, are harm- K less to take. This pleasant mixture, if taken regularly for a few days, is said to a overcome almost any case of Rheuma tism. The pain and swelling, if any, 01 diminishes with each dose, until per- c< manent results are obtained, and with- '' out injuring the stomach. While there H are many so-called Rheumatism rem- e| edies, patent medicines, etc., some of which do give relief, few really give permanent results, and the above will, |>i no doubt, be greatly apreciated by many sufferers here at this time. 2, Inquiry at the drug stores of this neighborhood elicits the information that these drugs are harmless and can U f be bought separately, or the druggis's here will mix the prescription for our ti< readers if asked to.
