Botb Nominated at Philadelphia
By Avclanialion.
Philadelphia, June 21.—McKinley for presi
dent and Governor Teddy Roosevelt of New
York for vice president were today nominated
by acclamation by the republican national
convention. Roosevelt fought hard to pre
vent his own nomination, and in this he was
aided until near the last by Senator Mark
Hanna, but the tide of Roosevelt nentiment
could not be stayed. Hanna finally gave in
and advised Roosevelt's nomination. The
enthusiasm was intense. The whole country
wanted Teddy, and the delegates would not
consider his declination.
The I)ojf and Tony Show.
Norria & Uowe's dog and pony show
gave two exhibitions in the city Wednes
day, which were reasonably well attend
ed. This little show is clean throughout
and reflects great credit ujon its man
agement, both as to the character of
its performances and the absence of
shell games and confidence men The
intelligence shown by the animals is
simply wonderful. The military drill
executed by the ponies is, to say the
least, one of the cleverest acts in the
City Improvements.
The city council has ordered a ditch
cut at the lower end of Cooper lake —the
idea being to put in a dam, with a head
gate at the upper end of the ditch. At
intervals the head gate will be raised

nant water that usually accumulates
there during the stage of low water.

Clifford Sent to the Pen.
Monday the attorneys for the prosecution
in the Clifford case asked that a date be set
for his trial upon another charge, but the court
took the matter under advisement and finally
refused to set a date. At the same time
UiHord and his attorneys seemed more
anxious to get him into the pen now
than to risk any further chances on an
other tna and according to instructions from
the court he was taken to Walla Walla Tues
day by Deputy Sheriff Chaa. Elmer and

Chaplain Bateninu Addressed
the Republican Club.
Defended the Government Against
the Charges Piled Up By
the Democracy.
"i \\ ish some artist with skillful pencil and
prophetic eye to paint a picture of the awaken
ing of the Orient. Let the back-ground be
Luminous with sunrise, through a tropical haze,
out of which looms the plume-tops of royal
palms. In the foreground I see a" American
soldier, in kah-ki uniform, bending over the
recumbent figure of the sleeping Orient; and, as
he gently strokes her tresses, I can hear him
say: -Awake from thy slumber of centuries,
thou fair one; for, behold, a new day has
dawned for all the world. The mighty" west
shall bless the east, and sen shall answer sea,
and mountain unto mountain rail, '('raise 'i'>d
for free.' "
With thiH beautiful word picture Chaplain
C. (J. Bateman closed a speech both interest
ing and politically instructive at the court
house Wednesday night, under the auspices ot
the Colfax republican club. The chaplain
eloquently preached the doctrine of expansion
nnd showed Aguinaldo up in his true colors as
a brigand and bribe taker. Having recently
returned from the Philippines, where he served
as chaplain of the Twentieth regiment, Mr.
Bateman assured his hearers that there was
nor never had been such a thing as the Fili
pino republic, and that Aguinaldo was noth
ing more than the dictator of the Tagaloa, one
of 65 tribes. Many Filipinos oppose him.
He is an arrant coward who has never been in
battle and a deceiver whom his own people
despise. The Tagaloa are hated by all other
The .■520,000,000 payment for the islands
was defended on the ground that none of the
country except Manila and Cavite had at that
time been conquered and other governments
would have objected and prevented our occu
pation except by purchase. Every property
owner and responsible man among the Fili
pinos talkß tor an I believe* in the American
The very people, said the speaker, who now
object to expansion are the ones who first in
augurated the expansion policy. Democrats
were responsible for the Louisana purchase
and the Mexican war which resulted in turn
ing a preat territory in the southwest over to
the United States. They now e:o back on their
own doctrine. The whole story of expansion
is democratic.
The .speaker defended the government
against the charges of yellow newspapers that
the soldiers were badly treated in tne Spanish
war. He was in Cuba with the Sixteenth
regiment and never heard but one complaint
of ill treatment from a soldier. This soldier's
left arm had been shattered by a ball and he
was going forward alone to find and kill the
Spanish sharpshooter who did it, when an
officer ordered him back to safer ground. 1 It
felt ill used.
The opposition charge th.it Filipinos have
been killed in cold blood by the United States
government. "The man who says this," ex
claimed the chaplain, "is a liar, willful and
malicious, or a traitor, or both, as they
The great natural wealth of the islands was
set out and the bold assertion made that the
inland of Mindanao alone is worth ten times
the purchase price.
The speaker is an eloquent man, and the
beauties of his language were fully appreci
ated and his sentiments most heartily applaud
ed by the audience.

of Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Everett,
New Whatcom, Port Angeles, Port
Townsend, North Yakima, Waila Walla
and Spokane. Special emphasis will be
placed on the advantages of these cities
aad the country adjacent to each. Will
