P. to Begin Active Operations on Pasco-Riparia Branch ENGINEEn DARLING IS IT PISCO COTRACTORS ARE GIVEN OPPOR- TUNITY TO BID ON THE CON- STRU.CTION WORK. PASCO, Wash., April 2. —Within a month dirt will begin flying on the Northern Pacific line from Pasco to Riparia, a distance of sixty-flve miles, along the bank of the Snake river. W. h. Darling, chief engineer of the Northern Pacific, was here Saturday with Simms and Shields, of the con tracting firm, conferring with half a dozen Minnesota contractors and Par sons & Boomer, of Spokane, about contracts on this line. Profiles of the road were shown the contractors and they were offered contracts. It is un derstood that none was made. There j is much heavy rock work and it is / said the contractors have been unfav- j orably impressed with the terms offer- j ed. It is believed that Wren & Green ough have taken a contract for some of the work, this being one reason for Thomas Greenough visiting this sec tion this month. Eastern contractors came out from Minnesota especially to examine into the work. On account of the heavy work, it will require about a year and a half to build the line. It is supposed to be a part of the Mis soula cut-off. The road from Lewiston to Riparia is now undergoing construction, which leaves only the line from Kooskfa, Idaho, to Hamilton. Montana, to be built. Engineer Darling went to the coast today in his private car. THOMPSON IS IN KEEN DEMAND Since Defeat of "Kid" Parker, Eastern Fighter Has Offers From West- ern Clubs. SPOKANE, April 2.—As a result of his victory over Kid Parker Maurice Thompson has received offers of matches in Seattle and Butte, though he now wishes to get a go before the Col ma club. W. R. Dailey of Seattle wired Thompson last night that he would make a good match for him in that city in the event that the Butte boy succeeded in disposing of Parker. Young Gordon of Butte also wants to have a go with Thompson at about 133 pounds, and the match may be ar ranged to be held in Dune McDonald's pavilion in the smelter town. Characteristic remarks were made by both fighters after the errtl of the contest. "Parker is a good man. and I know that I had to fight to beat him," said Thompson. "Was it a good fight?" queried Par ker. On being assured that it was, he answered: "Then I have no excuse to offer." BIGGEST PEACH ORCHARD IN WORLD T. F. Von Holderbeke, Former Horti- cultural Commissioner, Tells of His Plans. T. F. Von Holderbeke, former state commissioner of horticulture, is in the city as a witness in the civil action brought by J. A. Kelley & Sons against the Northwest Nursery. Since retiring from the position of horticul tural commissioner Mr. Von Holder beke has become identified with L. Mac- Lean, president of the Spokane Canal company, in the fruit industry. "Mr. Mac Lean and I are now en gaged in setting out what will be the largest exclusive peach orchard in the world," Mr. Von Holderbeke said this morning. "We have 2,000 acres op posite Chelan Falls on the Columbia and the land is now being put in con idtion for the trees. We will set out 320,000 trees within the next two years. We expect to set out about 65,000 trees this fall. Our "lands ex tend up and down the Columbia a distance of nearly five miles and thei MONDAY, APRIL 2. 1906. A WOMAN came into our store not long ago and Inquired if we had a strictly all wool ingrain carpet which we could guarantee to wear and hold its color. We replied that we had, that we were sole agents in Walla Walla for the Cele brated "Valkyrie" Carpets and carried upwards of two dozen patterns in this one grade. We explained the points of superior ity which "Valkyrie" Carpets have over inferior grades, and told her the -price was always 85c and that we would sew and lay her carpet without addi tional charge. The result was that we sold her a carpet. After she had made the pur chase she said: "A neighbor of mine bought a carpet at your store three years ago, and it looks almost as bright and new as the day she bought it, and they have used the room every day, too, so I just made up my mind to come here next time I bought a carpet." We have not had one com plaint about "Valkyrie" Carpet in more than five years, and have built up an enviable busi ness on this grade. Next time YOU need a Carpet, try a "Valkyrie."

We have sufficient water to irrigate 400 acres, but are arranging for another system of canals that will tap the Big Bend. There are a num ber of natural storage reservoirs that will be utilized for furnishing our lands with sufficient water to irrigate the wfyole 2,000 acres." FLIP OF COIN. Brothers-in-Law Poll Tie Vote for lowa Mayoralty. IDA GROVE, lowa, April 2—The winner of the office of mayor of this city may be determined by the flip of a coin or the cast of the dice. The re sult is now a'tie. This strange result is eclipsed by the fact that fhe warring candidates are brothers-in-law, both republicans. members of the firm of Anderson, Lip ton & Co., worth $1,000,000, founded on the combined fortune of the two w.Ves, who are sisters, and nieces of the late Senator Fair of California, who left them $900,000. Robert Lipton and W. J. Anderson were farmers when the Fair thousands came to their families. They moved here and have been prominent ever since. Two years ago, Lipton was elected mayor. When he was renomi nated. Anderson said he was going' to run for mayor also. The campaign was intensely exciting. They kept their temper well and did not let politics in terfere with money making. When the result of the election was announced, Anderson said he would contest, but now there is talk of a compromise and a little game of pitch or the short straw may yet decide who wins the office.
