W. H. Brooks, the founder and
editor of the Scimitar, has mov
ed his printing plant from Ket
tle Falls to Spokane, where he
will operate a job printing shop
at 1806 North Monroe. He has
turned his subscription list, ad
vertising patronage and job work
over to the Examiner.
The Kettle Falls managers of
the new Scimitar will be N. B.
Wheeler and J. M. Williams. Mr.
Wheeler has lived in Kettle Falls
22 years, and for years has been
the correspondent for the Review
and P.-I. Mr. Williams is cash
ier of the Kettle Falls branch of
the Bank of Colville. Both gentle
men have the interests of Kettle
Falls and the Columbia valley at
heart, and will endeaver to con
tinue the Scimitar for the bene
fit of that section. They will
have complete charge of the
Kettle Falls department, and will
receive advertising and job work
and make collections for their
All the Scimitar correspondents
will be retained. From one to
two pages of the Examiner will
be devoted to this department.
The Scimitar subscribers will
thus not only receive their own
news as usual, but in addition,
without extra cost, will receive
all the Examiner news, the of
icial county news and the official
county seat news.
This combination of two news
papers, and the combination of
two subscription lists, places the
Examiner in the lead among
newspapers in northeast Wash
ington, and gives an immense ad
vantage to advertisers, covering
as it does two distinct sections
of country. It will give the reg
ular Examiner readers a greater
field of reading, and will furnish
the Columbia valley section a
much greater field of publicity.
In addition to this, Meyers
Falls is to have a department of
its own, conducted by C. 0. San
ford of that place. He will be
authorized to handle advertising,
subscription and job work for
his department, and to collect
for the same.
It will take several weeks to
get the new departments in full
running order, and to get the
added list of subscribers proper
ly adjusted. Columbia river cor
respondents may send their news
either to the Kettle Falls man
agers or direct to the Examiner.
Another new feature of the
Examiner will be a reduction in
the subscription price when paid
in advance. The cash-in-advance
price will be $1.00 a year. When
not paid in advance, the regular
price will be $1.50 a year. With
the increased subscription list,
it is the intention to gradually
place all subscriptions upon a
cash-in-advance basis, and those
who do not care to pay in ad
vance may discontinue the paper.
The Examiner has doubled its
floor space, having rented the
south room of the Stenger &
Thomas building formerly occu
pied by Rich's jewelry store.
This will give us 30x70, and al
low us to spread out our material
so that a greater amount of work
can be accomplished. It also
gives the Examiner the largest
printing and publishing house in
the county. Some new equip
ment has also been added.
Governor Woodrow Wilson has
announced that immediately after
his inauguration as president of
the United States he will call an
extraordinary session ot" congress
to convene not later than April
15 for the purpose of revising the
"I shall call congress together
in extraordinary session not later
than April 15. I shall do this not
only because I think that the
pledges of the party ought to be
redeemed as promptly as possible,
but also because I know it to be
in the interest of business that
all uncertainty as to what the
particular items of tariff revision
are to be should be removed as
soon as possible."
Beyond this brief announce
ment, the governor said he had
nothing to say.
William J. Bryan, when in
formed of Governor Wilson's an
nouncement, said the president
elect had done the "wise thing."
Senator John Sharp Williams of
Mississippi, long democratic lead
er of the house, and a democratic
leader in the senate, said:
"It would be wise to confine
ourselves at this extra session to
the tariff and to trust legislation,
with such routine business as may
be practicable to get through."
Senator Dixon of Montana,
chairman of the progressive na
tional committee, said:
"I think Wilson has done the
wise thing in calling an extra
session. This secures the admin
istration "andthe democratic party
an opportunity to put into actual
practice their promises made dur
ing the campaign."
After March 4th next, the
Democratic party will control all
branches of the national govern
ment—President, Senate and
House—and it will be up to them
to make good. As evidenced by
the result of the late election, the
people have become sick and tired
of the rule of Special Privilege as
exemplified by the Republican
party, and have entrusted their
cause to the Democrats. The
same feeling of unrest which
caused this change is still in ex

istence, and if the democrats do
not carry out their platform
pledges and grant relief to the
people from the extortions of
trusts and monopolies—made pos
sible by the robber tariff—their
lease of power will, and ought to
be of short duration. —Ex.
The newspapers of the country
are busily engaged these days in
the pleasant task of building a
cabinet for President-elect Wil
son. The task is one of mere
guesswork, but serves the pur
pose of filling up space and inter
esting their renders. When the
time comes, President Wilson is
a big enough man to pick out his
own advisers, and there is no
question but what they will be
men fully competent to fill the
positions to which they are called.
According to court records the
expenses of the Bartholomew
case that is now in progress
amounts to approximately $400
per day. Some of the expert
witnesses draw $25 per day, and
others have mileage that amounts
to $45 per witness.
