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
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
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-
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
"Parker is a good man. and I know
that I had to fight to beat him," said
"Was it a good fight?" queried Par
ker. On being assured that it was, he
answered: "Then I have no excuse to
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

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."
