fend lies in the sandy section near the
Northern Pacific railway, and until
the movement of desert land a few
weeks ago was considered worthless
in years past, when booms were in
order, people rushed to file homesteads
upon the river banks, and much of
the poorest land was thus taken from
settlement. As might be expected
nothing came of the filings, the par
ties even failing to relinquish after
the holdings proved no good. When
the recent desert filings began near
Pasco people looked about for every
piece of available land, and a number
of filings have been made in Walla
Walla county. In order to clear the
record's in case of previous filings the
contests had to be brought, and there
is little doubt that any of the original
settlers will be heard from. The land
will be taken as desert in case the
contests prove successful.

LABOR UNION CELEBRATE.
First Anniversary Exercises of Or
ganized Labor in the Garden
City of the Northwest.
One tear ago the first systematic
work of organizing the various crafts
in Walla Walla began. The then state
organizer. F. Stacy Whitney, since de
ceased, visited Walla Walla at the
urgent invitation of Typographical
union No. 3fcS. Mr. Whitney's advent
was proclaimed throughout the city by
a committee of enthusiastic "typos"
and arrangements were made to hold
a mass meeting at the county court
house. As a result of this meeting
three new unions, namely, painters,
carpenters and barbers, were estab
Upon Mr. Whitney's departure the
active work of organiizng was carried
on by various members of the Cigar
Makers' union and typos of No. 388.
By diligent work on the part-of this
voluntary committee this movement
was carried to its present standing,
embracing nearly every trade in the
After one year of strenuous labor,
the leaders of the trade union move
ment may well look back with pride
on the honorable record shown. Con
sistent, conservative and conscien
tious has been the method of the cen
tral council in dealing with questions
of difference between employer and
employed. As a fitting celebration
of their first anniversary, organized
labor has called another mass meet
ing this evening at Armory hail to
which the general public is invited.
The Rev. Austin Rice and Rev. M. H.
Marvin have been invited to deliver
appropriate addresses and a large at
tendance is expected. The meeting
will be called to order at 8 o'clock by
President' George Ripple of the Trades
Council. The Walla Walla Military
band will render several selections
during the evening.
CROP LIGHT, PRICES GOOD.
General Conditions Over the State Not
E. Noonan, manager of the Paget
Sound Warehouse company, with a
line of warehouses throughout the
wheat belt in eastern Washington, is
making a trip for his company in an
effort to size up the grain situation.
In Walla Walla he said:
"The crops in Washington are go
ing to turn out a fair crop, but in this
valley the shortage will be greatest.
In the Palouse the crop of wheat will
be fair while oats will make a new
record. In this section the wlieat is
going to turn out below the average,
but in Columbia county the barley
crop promises good results.
"The price will prove a redeeming
feature. Ranging about 15 to 20 cents
above the price at the opening of har
vest last year, farmers will get more
money from the grain this year than
they did last, or about as much. Ex
penses wdll not be so high, and alto
gether there is but little to complain
SHIELDS PARK THIS WEEK.
Shields Park was crowded again
last night with patrons anxious to see
the new faces for this week and com
pare the bill with that of last week.
While the program is entirely differ
ent the same standard of excellence
prevails and the complimentary re
marks heard as the people passed out
of the gate bespeaks a record break
er for this week and made Manager
Rasmus feel that his efforts to please
were not in vain.
Pretty Katie Orr was the first num
ber on the program and her sweet
singing and clever dancing made her
a favorite at once. Eddie Earnie in
iiis wonderful ring act won round;
after round of applause and demon
strated his right to be railed one of
the famous team of monopedes.
Hooley and Kelton made a great hit in
their comedy sketch "The Sleep
Walker." and were forced to respond
to a number of encores. The star act
of the program was the Dagmars in
their wonderful acrobatic feats and
barrel jumping. This team has a
world-wide reputation as the origina
tors of this marvelous act. which
must be seen to be appreciated and
Manager Rasmus is to be congratulat
ed on being able to present such fa
mous artists. Mr. Ronald Bradbury
in his beautiful illustrated song. "The
Tie That Binds," won fresh laurels.
The polyscope pictures are much bet
ter this week.

NEW ROAD LS SURE.
B. B. & B. C. Will Cross the
W r hatcom.—That the B. B. & B. C.
railway is making preparations to ex-,
tend its line across the Cascades from
Whatcom to Spokane at an early dflte
is confirmed by the amended articles
of incorporation which will be filed
within a few days with Secretary-
Nichols at Olympia and with the au
ditor of Whatcom county.
These articles adopted at a meeting
of the board of directors in San Fran
cisco on the 2d of July authorized the
construction of the proposed road.
The distance from tidewater here to
Spokane over the located route is
miles —nineteen miles less than the
line of the Great Northern from Spo
kane to Everett, the shortest existing
railway from eastern Washington to
I'uget Sound. The extension of the
B. B. & B. C. will pass through the
Mount Baker, the Slate creek and the
Okanogan mining regions and through
the rich Methow valley, and much of
the best mining lands east of the Cas
cades. The route described in the
articles is by the North fork of the
Xooksack river in Whatcom county
and though Hannegan pass in an east
erly direction, thence soutbeasternly
along the valley of the Methow. to
a point near its junction with the Col
umbia and on to Spokane. This will
open up a wealth of undeveloped
country unexcelled on the Pacific
coast in its possibilities.
Another feature of the amended ar
ticles is the authorization to have
the branch now being built westward
from Hamilton on the present line to
Lynden continued on to Blanche. En
gineers of the B. B. & B. C. are now
in eastern Washington looking over
the location of the proposed road.
The route was practically determin
ed upon after the exploration of Engi
neer Cryderman and party a year ago.
The extension eastward from the end
of the original line at Sumas was re
cently completed to Glacier creek at
the foot of one of the old state trails
to Hannegan pass, which is 20 miles
beyond and through which the railroad
will cross the mountains. Seven miles
above the present terminus, the B. B.
& B. C. Improvement company, the
stockholders of which are the same as
of the B. B. & B. C. is putting in a
big electric plant at the falls of the
Nooksack river. The suggestion has
been made that this power will be
used in sending trains over the moun
tain division of the railroad. It is not
known when the active construction
work will begin across the Cascades.
ELKS IN NATIONAL SESSION.
Baltimore. Md., July 21. —Thousands
of members of the Benevolent and
Protective Order of Elks are here from
every prominent city in the country
to attend the annual meeting of th<
grand lodge and reunion of that order,
which began today and will continue
throughout the week. Tomorrow there
will be a grand parade, in which it is
expected 15,000 Elks will participate.
The opening exercises were held to
day in Ford's opera house, which was
crowded with badge-bedecked Elks
and their ladies when the grand chap
lain arose and offered prayer. Mayor
M< Lane made the opening address ol
welcome. He was followed by Charles
R. Schirm, who welcomed the visitors
on behalf of the Baltimore iodg*'.
George Cronk of Omaha, the grand
exalted ruler, responded. This after
noon there was a great band contest
at Electric park and other festivities
are planned for this evening.

Life for Edgar C. Cowell Is Made Un
pleasant by the Seattle Police.
Seattle. —Edgar C. Crowell. arrested
Saturday evening for the second time
upon suspicion of being responsible
for the death of Mrs. Addie Mull and
her infant daughter. Gussie. was re
leased from the city jail about noon
Monday by direction of Prosecuting
Attorney Scott. Mr. Scott's reason is
thus stated by himself:
"Crowell could not legally lie held
upon mere suspicion after being once
discharged. No evidence has yet been
developed which would justify swear
ing out a complaint against him. If
such evidence is obtained later the
officers can easily lay their hands
upon Crowell at any time.
"The bodies of Mrs. Mull and the
child will be exhumed Tuesday to be
viewed by a coroner's jury, which will
>c impaneled to serve at the inquest,
which will be held Tuesday.
It is not supposed that anything
will be learned by the inspection of
the remains beyond what is known al
ready. The inquest was deferred until
today because City Chemist Bogardus
