Kees' Friends Are Active—Cadman Is
Said to Be Slated for Job.
The announcement in the Evening
Statesman of Saturday that Governor
elect Mead was coming to
Walla Walla, has had the effect
of causing considerable speculation
among local republican politicians.
They look upon Mead's visit to Walla
Walla as one of much importance,
and that in addition to inspecting the
penitentiary, he may decide the war
denship question while in the city.
The friends of A. F. Kees, who is a
candidate for the place, are preparing
for Mead's visit and will be on hand
to advance reasons why the Walla
Petersburg. Both sides participated.

licemen charged the crowd full gallop.

Russin Hospital Ship at Cpe Town.

sian hospital ship "Orel" arrived here

Russian Cruisers at Crete.
12. —The Russian cruisers "Oleguj,"
"Dneichr." and the torpedo boat de
stroyer "Grozeny" arrived here this
of marriage. He said the mothers of
his own children had been given him
by God and were saints of God. Smith
was quoted by the witness as saying
that he could not give up any of his
wives, that it meant eternal damnation
to abandon multiple wives. The wit
ness sair he made inquiries concern
ing Smoot and found be sustained an
excellent character.
George Reynolds, a Mormon of Salt
Lake, testified that he formerly kept
the dead persons in endowment house.
He said marriages were performed
with dead persons in the endowment
house, and that the church granted
divorces from legal marriages until
the courts acted. Plural marriages
are not recognized by courts and
therefore the church does not consult
the court in such cases.
More Subpoenas Issued.
SALT LAKE. Dec. 12.—United
States Marshl Heywood served six
more subpoenas today on witnesses in
the Smoot case including the county
clerk of Wevier county, who was or
dered to bring the marrige records to
Walla man should receive favorable
consideration from the governor-elect.
A story comes from the sound that
Mead is not yet ready to make any
announcements, but will endeavor to
hold up all appointments as long as
possible. It is claimed that he finds
himself in a very embarrassing posi
tion regarding appointments to the
various fat berths in the numerous
state institutions, and that while he
will endeavor to satisfy all factions of
the republican party in this regard
he may experience trouble. The Wil
son crowd of Seattle are still persist
ent in their demand that they be given
the power to distribute the patronage.
This fact alone has been the cause
of a renewed effort on the part of
Kees' friends to force the governor
to settle the wardenship appointment
when he comes to Walla Walla. It
is a well known fact that the friends
of Kees are not in the Wilson band
wagon and that they will not be found
supporting the Seattle newspaper man
for United States senator when the
battle opens up in Olympia next
month. They hope to show to Mead
that he owes something to Walla Walla
and that in payment of the debt the
wardenship should go to Kees.
According to the way the cards are
stacked it looks as if the desire of Kees
to become warden carries with it the
aspirations of another republican, wno
has for mny years drawn a salary as
a county official. It is now claimed
that if Kees should secure the peni
tentiary plum, his office of deputy rev
enue collector under Collector of Cus
toms Crocker is to go to Walter L.
Cadman. at present deputy assessor of
Walla Walla county. Cadman stands
well with the Crocker crowd and bas
been one of the leaders of that fac
tion of the republican party for many
Lee Shun Arrested on Charge of Being
Here Illegally.
Lee Shun, a Chinaman, was arrest
ed Saturday by Inspector R. B. Scott
on a warrant issued by United States
Commissioner Harry Strong and fall
en to the county jail. He is charged
with being illegally within the United
States. He was brought up for trial
before Commissioner Strong in the
United States court at 3 o'clock today.
The case is being fought on behalf
of Shun, the defense being that he
was over here and a merchant during
the registration period, consequently
has no certificates as merchants were
not given certificates at that time.
If the case goes against him Shun will
have to go back to China agin.
East Enders of Umatilla Renew Old
Agitation of Question.
A story comes from Athena that the
people residing in the eastern portion

and business men of that end of the
county are now at work on the prop
ostition and that they will send a large

lem this winter to lobby for the meas
ure. Several attempts have been made
