lately with his utock, says the Farming

valuable horees was found to be suffer

yet fully recovered. The day after the
finding of the horse, a 4 months old
heifer was found to be suffering from a
similar cause and on Wednesday the
animal died. A few days ago a second

! The charge is being advanced by
opposing politicians that Hon. J. M.
brink, republican nominee for governor
ie unfriendly to the interests of the farm
jng t-ommuuitieeof Eastern Washington
Ihese reiterations led Hon. John W*
Arrasmith to address the following letter
v• . • Knnk« un(l h'B reP'y follows. Mr.
rnnk s reputation as a man of his word
is unsurpassed, and all who know him
have implicit faith in what he may say
upon any question, public or private:
Colfax Wash., Aug. 1, l'.KX>.-Hon. J. M.
*nnk, .Seattle, Wash.—My Dear Sir: The
farmers of Eastern Washington have been for
years, and are now, anxious to secure some
reasonable adjustment of freight rates upon
farra products. They have in the past sought
relief in urging the legislative enactment of
maximum rate lawe, but the poor result of
these efforts have convinced many of us that
the real remedy lies in an appointive railroad
Your nomination by the recent republican
state convention for the office of governor has
naturally aroused much interest, and occa
sioned some discussion as to your views of
that question.
Having served with you in the legislature
oi this state, and there learned to rely upon
your word, I take it upon myself to address
you this letter and ask you to define in your
reply your attitude upon that subject. I
know that when you and I were together in
the legislative session of 18H3, you supported
the freight rate measure known as the Ander
son bill, but I am anxious to know your pres
ent attitude as bearing upon your present
action in the premises if elected governor. I
am, respectfully yours,
Mr. Frink's Heply.
Seattle, Washington, August 23, I!KK) —
»?' i\ V,Arrasmith. Colfax, Washington.
—My Dear bir: lam in receipt of your letter
ot the 18th mst. In reply I would Bay: lam
heartily in sympathy with you and your peo
ple in Eastern Washington in your desire for
a just and equitable reduction of the present
freight rates. It is my judgment after mature
deliberation, and watching the effects of rail
way legislation in other states, that the best
way to arrive at a proper solution of this
matter, which will do justice to all parties
and sections concerned, is through a railway
commission. Every legislature convened has
had this matter under consideration, and with
the exception of the freight rate bill known as
theAndersoQ bill, passed by the legislature of
IB.W, no railway legislation has been passed.
I his is owing largely to local and conflicting
interests. The creation of a railway com
mission, to whom all these matters could be
referred, wauld, in my opinion, bring about a
freight rate reduction satisfactory to all par
ties concerned,
If I am elected governor of this state and
the legislature, in its wisdom, ehould pass an
act creating such a commission, it will have
my immediate approval, and if the duty of
appointment devolve upon me, I promise you
that such appointments would be made solely
on the basis of merit and qualification. No
appointment would be made for the purpose
of compensating political workers or paying
campaign debts.
Hoping that I have made myself clear in
this matter, I remain, Sincerely yours,
J. M. Frink.
