Fire Alarm System and Opening of
First Street to Be Considered
at Special Meeting.
The city council will meet tonight in
special session and an Interesting
meeting is anticipated. The question
of Installing a Are alarm system will
be taken up and the matter will prob
ably be definitely settled. A majority
of the councilmen have expressed
themselves as being in favor of taking
immediate action. It is said that the
largest business men are very favor
able to the proposition, as they believe
it is a necessity.
The opening of First street from
Newell to Whitman will also receive
some attention at the meeting. The
people residing in that vicinity are
very anxiouw that the street should he
opened and an effort will oe made to
have the council do something with
the proposition at once.
What action will be taken in the
water question is not known, but it is
hinted that the committee on flre and
water will ask for further time in
which to make a report on the lines
called for in the resolution introduc
ed by Councilman Boyer at the last
regular meeting. The resolution pro
vided for an investigation and report
by the committee at the next meeting
of the council, but whether they will
report or not remains to be seen.
The poundmaster muddle will occu
py no small amount of the time of the
council. E. R. Harding will resist the
action taken in reconsidering his elec
tion several weeks ago, and will be
represented at the meeting by his at
THE CENTURY FOR 1904.
The Century for 1904 promises a
wealth of reading and pictures tnat
surpasses even the high standard
achieved during 1903. Perhaps most
notable of all the strong features of
the volume will be Dr. S. Weir Mitch
ell's "The Youth of Washington," told
in the form of an autobiography. It
will be a daring and unique piece of
historical work, written as if it were
done by General Washington himself,
sitting down in Mt. Vernon in his old
age and recording, solely for his own
eye, the story of his youthful life.
Then there will be a series of arti
cles on •"Italian Villas and their Gar
dens," written by Edith Wharton and
illustrated, largely in color, by Max
field Parrish. Ernest Thompson Seton
has prepared "Fable and Woodmyth,"
brief papers in a new vein, the illus
trations in the author's most fantastic
and amusing style. Early numbers
will bring John Burroughs "Current
Misconceptions in Natural History."
Already have commenced the import
ant Thackeray letters, telling the
story of the great novelist's friend
ship with the Baxter family of New
York, with facsimiles of manuscripts
and drawings by the author. Ray
Stannard Baker, whose articles on the
Great Northwest and the Great South
west have been leading and widely
acceptable features of recent volumes,
will continue his notes on the regions;
and there will be valuable contribu
tions by Jacob A. Riis, Dr. James M.
Buckley, and scores of other notable
Fiction of the volume will include
1 Jack London's strong new novel, "The
I Sea- "Wolf," Maud Wilder Goodwin's

a wealth of short stories from Anne

MAY GET FACTORY
Holt Company May Locate
IMPRESSED WITH WALLA WALLA
President Holt Says This City Offers
the Best Advantages in the
"If the Holt Manufacturing company
of Stockton, Cal., decide definitely to
establish a factory in the Northwest
for the construction of combined har
vesters and other farm machinery.
Walla Walla, will undoubtedly be the
place favored as a location," said Mr.
Ben Holt, president of the company
Mr. Holt, accompanied by Pliny E.
Holt, mechanical engineer and
draughtsman of the company, and
Ben C. Holt, local manager In this
city, arrived from Spokane last night
on the O. R. & N.
The visit of these gentlemen to this
city may mean considerable to Walla
Walla, and may result in bringing to
the city an establishment of great
magnitude. For some time the com
pany has had under consideration the
establishment of a factory in Wash
ington, and it was mainly through the
efforts of Ben C. Holt that these mem
bers of the company were induced to
come to Walla Walla.
"We have realized for some time."
said Mr. Holt, "that in order to prop
erly handle .our increasing trade in
this section it was necessary to have
a factory on the ground. This would
to a great extent be a saving to us in
the matter of freight rates and we
would be in a better position to handle
the business. I am certain that Walla
Walla would be the best and most
convenient point in the state for our
establishment, and should our com
pany decide to come north. Walla
Walla will be the place chosen.
"We did not have much time while
in Spokane to look around, and did
not inspect any sites in that locality.
Other business occupied our attention
there, and while we were willing to in
vestigate anything that could be offer
ed there, we were compelled to cut
short our visit in that city.
"The Holt company is one of the
largest firms in the United States
manufacturing harvesters, traction en
gines and other farm implements, and
it would mean a big thing for your
city if we decide to locate here. We
have a large plant and it would mean
the employment of about 200 hands
to operate the factory. I am greatly
impressed with your city and the sur
During the day the visitors met
with the Commercial Club committee
composed of H. H .Turner, M. H. Pax
ton, Dr. E. E. Fall, F. W. Kaser and C.
F. Van De Water. The niter was
tnken up and thoroughly discussed
from all points of view. The subject
of water supply, fire protection and
other matters pertinent to the ques
tion were carefully considered. The
Commercial Club committee assured
the gentleman that the club stood
ready to assist them in any manner
possible to consummate the establish
ment of the factory here. This after
noon the party were driven about the
city and given an opportunity to view
different sites which were available
for their needs.
President Holt and P. E. Holt nave
just returned from a trip to Spain,
where they went for the puprpose of|
placing a traction engine and disc'
plow. The machine was the first of
the kind ever set to work in Spain
and it proved highly satisfactory. The
work accomplished was a revelation
to the farmers of that country, and
the day it was operated was a gala
occasion. Over 3000 people were there
to witness it. "The success of this
venture," said P. E. Holt, "will be the
means of bringing a large amount of
business to our firm, and we expect
soon to receive many orders for addi
tional plows and engines from that
country. We will shortly send a sim
ilar machine to South Africa."
The party left on the afternoon train
for Stockton, where they will report
to the company the result of their in
vestigations, and the question of In
vading the northern territory will be

File Suit in Spokane
H. M. GLIDDEN THE DEFENDANT
The Company Asks That a Certain
Contract With Glidden Be
The litigation concerning the Walla
Walla Gas & Electric Light company
and the Pendleton Electric Light com
pany has taken a new turn in the
courts. In Spokane yesterday a suit
was filed in the United States court
asking that a certain contract made
between the parties be modified. This
latter suit is brought by Cyrus Pierce,
Edward V. Kane and Isaac W. Ander
son against H. M. Glidden, of Spo
kane. Some time ago the defendants
In this new suit brought a law action
for damages against the plaintiffs for
$16,000, which he claimed to be due
on a contract to sell some options that
he had on the stock of the Walla
Walla Gas & Electric company, the
Pendleton Electric Light company and
the Athena Light & Power company.
The latter company owned the power
er in the W T alla Walla river. The con
tract as set out in the pleadings shows
that if the deal was carried through
C. M. Rader was to have $60,000 for
his interest in the options to be paid
him in stock in a new company to be
formed. When the original case came
up at the last term of court at Spo
kane Judge Hanford ruled that the
plaintiffs had not set out a cause of
action and that the federal court
would pay no attention to a suit in
equity brought in the superior court.

HE FORGED A DRAFT
C. L. Martin, a Traveling
WANTED BY PENDLETON OFFICERS
Claimed He Obtained Goods Under
False Pretenses in the Oregon
C. L. Martin, a traveling salesman
for a nickle-in-the-slot house, was
arrested by the police at the Hotel
Dacres this morning on telegraphic in
structions from Sheriff Til Taylor of
Pendleton. Martin is charged with
obtaining goods under false pretenses
by means of a forged draft, and a
charge of forgery may be preferred
against him by the Umatilla county
Martin was quite indignant at his
arrest and vehemently declared his in
nocence of any wrong doing. The
police had no alternative, however, but
to place him in the city Jail until the
arrival of an officer from Pendleton.
Sheriff Taylor is expected to arrive
this afternoon on the delayed O. R. &
N. train to take Martin to Pendleton.
It is not believed that Martin will
