FOR DIRECT PRIMARY LAW Appeal Has Been Made to Voters of Washington. URGED TO PREPARE FOR THE FIGHT Civic Union of Seattle Sends Out Cir cular Letter to All Newspapers in the State. An appeal to the people of "Washing ton to make a warm campaign for a di rect primary law to be passed by the next legislature ha s been sent out by C. W. Horr, chairman of the direct primary committee of the Civic Union of the city of Seattle. His letter is as follows: SEATTLE, "Wash., Feb. 7.—Citizens of Washington:" All who believe in the majority rule, and are opposed to the domination by an oligarchy of political bosses are exhorted to agitate and or ganize for a campaign in favor of nom inations by direct primaries, which will restore the lost art of rule by the peo ple. The political bosses decreed that we shall not have rule by the people, and for that reason defeated direct primary bills in the legislature of the state of Washington in 1891, 1903 and 1905. At the last session of the state legislature a direct primary bill passed the house and was reported on favorably by the senate judiciary committee. Twenty one of the 42 senators had intimatad they were in favor of direct primaries. "When these men, elected as servants of the people, had ascertained that 21 senators had indicated they were in favor of direct primaries, it was, de creed by the bosses that the direct prU mary bill must not be allowed to come to a vote, so that these public servancs would not be placed on record by roll call. It was understood that when the bill came up for consideration it should be howled down by a viva voce vote. This self evident scheme as outlined was carried out almost unanimously, in opposition to the efforts of Senators Russell, Graves and Palmer who pleaded for fair play and a square deal. Prepare For the Fight. We must now prepare for the fight and see to it that only good and true men are nominated and elected to the| legislature, who will serve the people to the end that the much too confiding American citzen may not be the vic tim of irresponsible polticians. If you wish to exercise your full rights ..if American citizenship, organize direct primary leagues in every voting pre cinct in this state. We will call a state convention of league delegates and enter into the campaign fully pre pared for the coming fight with the po litical bosses. The great states of Ohia and Penn sylvania have declared in an unmistak able manner that the political bosses and ward heelers must go. Now is the time for all good citizens to assert their manhood and recover their political rights, now usurped by political bosses Let us be worthy "for rule of the peo ple, by the people and for the people." DIRECT PRIMARY COMMITTEE. Per C. W. HOOR. AMUSEMENTS Kuiiman 'uiee oiuu. The boys' glee club from the Wash ington State College arrived in Walla Walla this afternoon and tonight will give a concert and entertainment at tno Keylor Grand theater. This is one :f the best student organizations in the state and everywhere they have ap REQUIRES 3 MINUTES of Back-Breaking Work. and a "Universal" Bread Maker. (ASK YOUR WIFE.) (ASK YOUR NEIGHBOR.) The New Way is Simple, Sure and Sanitary and the "Universal" Bread Machine is Ae Acme of the Labor-Savers' Art. SOLD BY THE DAVIS-KASER CO. peared they have been given a rousing reception. The members of, the club are said to be excellent singers and their efforts to furnish an attractive program have been crowned with suc cess. One of the features of tonight's concert will be the brass quartet, which will render several musical numbers a:.>l in addition to the musical end of the program the boy s also present a good one-act comedy. The advance sale in dicates that the theater will contain a large audience tonight. "Human Hearts." In "Human Hearts" the story told is one of much interest in which the sympathies of the audience are very j thoroughly enlis'ed. Tom Logan, an honest blacksmith, living in the hills of Arkansis, is entrapped by an ad venturess whom he marries without discovering her character. After a time, and while poor Tom thinks his happiness is secure, her former lover appears on the scene. A murder Is committed and through the plottings of this Infamous man and woman, the crime is fastened on Tom. He dis covers the truth, but through love tor the woman, and rather than betray her he bears the stigma, stands trial, is convicted, and is sentenced to state'a prison for life, where he would have remained, had it not been for the In tervention of faithful friends, who bring his case to the notice of the governor of Arkansas. In the end of course, all ends happily and Tom is restored to his former standing in the community. The play is one in which pathos is com bined with comedy. The organization presenting "Human Hearts," is under the management of W. E. Nankeville, who has directed its tour most successful}- for years. Mr. Nankeville is said to have procided ample scenery display for the produc- j tion and to have engaged a splendid company for the portrayal of the vari- | ous characters. At the Keylor Grand tomorrow night, February 10. Charles B. Hanford. One of the most terrible and tre- I mendous characters of the drama is that of "Othello," which Charles B. Hanford will present at the Keylor Grand on Monday, February 12. It is terrible because of the rage which in spires it and tremendous because of its simple dignity. That few actors can realize such immensities of human emotion as it deals with is not sur prising. Charles B. Hanford has been fortunate in having the courage, tho scholarship, the genius and the op portunities which must combine ?n order to produce a favorite tragic star. Schooled in his early youth under thp guidance of the most eminent players that have graced the American stage he has in mature life carved out a way for himself with only the loftiest ideals of his art in view. Today finds his re ward in the fact that the announce ment of his appearance is sufficient t • arrest the attention of theatre-goers of every description. Miss Marie DrofnaTi who will play "Desdemona" is an act ress of wonderful power and personali ty. "Iago" will be played by that ex cellent actor Frank Hennig. Specisl scenery and costumes have been pro vided for this presentation of "Othel lo." "Yon Yonson" Coming. The attraction at the Keylor Gran on February 14, will be "Yon Yonson" which is such a departure from the average dialect production. It is u Swedish dialect comedy with a plot well worth listening to. Earl K Mit - chell interprets the role of the Swede "just over." As the play progresses, "Yon Yonson" shows evidence of grad ually becoming Americanized. It is ! said that since the death of Gus Heege, no one has assumed the character si perfectly as Mr. Mitchell, who originat ed the part in England. The play is staged with new scenic equipment and 1 accessories During each act a number of refined specialties will be introduced, including the now famous "Lumber men's Quartet," which has made such a great hit throughout the country.

UPHOLDS RIGHT OF OLD FOLKS SUPREME COURT SETTLES STA TUS OF DEED IN CONSIDER ATION OF SUPPORT. . When old folks deed their property to their son on an agreement that Sie will care for them until they die, the estate that passes to the son is not such as will vest title in the son's wife, or on her death in her children. Such was the decision of the su preme court in the Skagit county case of Jefferson Ford against C. H. Kimb'e and others at Olympia. Ford sued to ( set aside a decree in a case wherein ne, while a minor, was a party. Levi and Rebecca Ford, aged 80 and 75 years a t the time, deeded their J7.000 Skagit county farm and turned over $2,000 personal property to their son, on his promise to care for them while they lived. The deed by mistake gave a wrong description of the property. Subsequently the parents gave a quit-claim deed of the property, de scribing it correctly, to their daughter. Litigation arose, to which Jefferson Ford was a party as heir of his mother, who was wife of the old folks' sou. This litigation resulted in a decree set ting aside the quit-claim to the daugh ter, curing the original.deed to the son and requiring the son to care for the parents. Subsequently the old folks separated, the father going with his daughter, the mother with the son, and the property wa s by court decree parti tioned between son and daughter. In its decision the supreme court says Jefferson Ford, the grandson, had no interest in the litigation or property, because while record title was in h s father, the father was not an owner in fee, but simply a trustee for the old folks.

FINANCE THE NORTH COAST New York Capitalists Said to Have Put Up Money. NORTHERN PACIFIC TO MEET ST. PAUL Report That Union Pacific Had Se cured Control of the Illinois Central Is Denied. The North Coast railroad is to be built at the cost of about $35,000 a mile, including terminals, making the total cost more than $20,000,000, is the report that comes from New York. Preparations have been completed for financing the project on a good basis. New York capital is supplying more than 80 per cent of the money. It is not true that the Union Pacific has bought the Ilinois Central, though control has been in easy reach for the past year. It is reported the Union Pacific has sold nearly all the Great Northern and Northern Pacific stock it owned and has nearly $100,000,000 in cash. Nearly 20 branches are to be buiit, the Oregon Short Line using over $25,- 000,000, which is $15,000,000 more than expected. Rumors say the Northern Pacific will issue $20,000,000 of stock at par to finance the Clearwater line and lines in Washington to meet the Milwaukee competition. There is no confirmation yet, the buying of Great Northern and Northern Pacific being a mystery, but i said to be for Hill and Morgan, en- I tirely on account of the great deals • impending. ♦ WHITMAN COLLEGE NOTES. ■• With their clothing scattered in vari ous parts of the building the men of the Whitman faculty at the conclusion of their basketball practice last night found themselves the victims of a col lege joke that savored of the days of the "old swimmin' hole" when it was the custom of the boys to tie each others clothing into knots. It was only after a continued search that the miss-1 ing raiment was discovered. Who the perpetrators of the crime were is a j deep mystery, and at the present time | no one seems inclined to boast of the deed, so it wi] probably pass into his tory with the long list of college pranks. The fourth-year class of Pearsons academy will give a party to the third - year clas this evening in Association hall. The entertainment is in return j for one given by the lower class at the first of the year. At the invitation of the Country club the Girls' Glee club of Whitman will occupy boxes this evening at the con cert given by the Pullman Glee club in the Keylor Grand. Several parties of students are planning to attend and give a send-off to the performers from the State institution. 1 To consider objections or alterations to the revised constiuttion, the execu tive committee of the Associated Stu dents will hold an open meeting to morrow afternoon. Among other pro visions the new form provides for the impeachment of officers to be con ducted with the president of the col lege in the chair. Dr. E. E. Shaw will address the boys of Billings Hall after dinner this even ing on the subject of the "Medical Profession." The talk is one of the series that are being given every Fri day. The second popular lecture, open to the public, will be given tomorrow af ternoon by Dr. Brode in the biological laboratory on the subject of "Bac teria." Specimens prepared by the class in bacteriology will be used ; n the demonstrations. Next Saturday- Professor Brubaker, head of the chemi cal department, will lecture on the "Manufacture of Gas and Gas Analv sta."
