A (.001) MAN CHOSE*
John \Y. Arrasmith, Secretary
State Ontral Committee.
His Acceptance of the Trust is
Everywhere Hailed With
John W. Arrasmith has been offered
and accepted the important position of
secretary of the Washington state re
publican central committee. It is an
bonor well placed. Mr. Arrasmith will
leave for headquarters at Seattle about
September 20 to take up the duties
which a hard campaign will impose up
on him in his devotion to the republi
can party, the principles of which he
never forsook when others were falling
all about him.
Mr. Arrasmith was asked to accept
the place when the appointment of a
secretary came up immediately after the
state convention. He then declined be
cause he diil not believe his private busi
ness ;!ffnirH would permit him to make
the sacrifice of time which the position
will demand throughout the entire cam
paign. .1. Will Lysone wus then reap
pointed, but has since insisted upon Mr.
Arrasmiths acceptance, and he has
done so, while Mr. Lysons will become
his assistant.
The appointment is one of great grati
fication to the republicans of Whitman
county. They know the work will be
done with the energy, ability and con
scientiousness which characterize Secre
tary Arrasmith in all he does. The
state republicans at large are to be con
gratulated upon his acceptance.
As Received On the Sound.
The Tacoma Ledger says, editorially:
Republicans throughout the state can
not but feel gratified at the selection of
the Hon. John W, Arrasmith of Whit
man county as secretary of the state
central committee, His acceptance of
the trust, with the hard work it involves,
speaks volumes for his devotion to the
party, inasmuch as he is making sacri
fice of his business affairs. While Mr.
Arrasmith is neither a professional
organizer nor a gad-aboot politician, he
in eminently fitted for the performance
of the duties which persons having the
best interests of the republican cam
paign at heart evidently prevailed upon
him to take up. He is perfectly fa
miliar with the political conditions of
the state. Having stood as one of the
republican bulwarks against populism
for years in a section where the uprising;
was most intense and irreconcilable, he
has earned the respect of the enemy for
uprightness and courage, while learning
the weak spots in the fusion method of
Mr. Arrasmith has been regarded for
years as one of the eafest and cleverest
republican leaders of the east side. He
has served several terms in the territor
ial and state legislatures, and was can
didate for lieutenant governor in the
campaign of 18DG. As a lawmaker he
distinguished himself for integrity, con
servatism and rare good sense. He is a
son of the soil, pure aud simple, and a
tighter clear through; aithough of that
cautious and diffident exterior which is
so often mistaken in strong men for
evidence of timidity.
What is of particular moment in the
choice of Mr. Arrasmith and his decision
to accept the responsibility is the excel
lent moral effect to be produced. The
fusionists have overshot the mark by
making a lot of airy charges against Mr.
Frink, republican candidate for govern
or, in the matter of anticipated railroad
legislation. He has been held up to
view as a secret agent of the railroad
power and an enemy of the east side
farmers. This accusation is disproved
by the record, since Mr. Frink supported
and voted for the only railroad rate
legislation that has been enncted in the
state, and it was especially designed for
the relief of the shippers in the wheat
belt. He was active and influential in
the senate at a time when Mr. Arra
smith was exerting every energy as
speaker of the house to secure the pass
age of the maximum rate measure
known as the Anderson bill. He had
no affiliation whatever with the coterie
of republican state senators who were
serving the railroad interests by pigeon
holing the bill in the senate committee.
At the closing hours of the session of
18'.K$, when all hope for the enactment
«.f the Anderson bill seemed at an end,
Mr. Arrasmith made a personal appeal
to Governor McGraw to use his power
and influence in a hist endeavor to force
the bill from its hiding place, as its pass
age on presentation to the senate was a
certainty. Among those who stood
| pledged to support it at that critical
juncture was Senator Frink. Then
Governor McGraw did-one of those dar
ing things which remain as the unwrit
ten chapters of an administration in
spired by the highest motives. He de
manded, under the threat of public
exposure aud castigation, the reporting
i of the Anderson bill to the senate, which
was reluctantly done, with the majority
report against it.
Thus Mr. Arrasmith served his con
stituency loyally to the last ditch; Gov-
I ernor IfeGraw enforced the fulfillment of
the party pledges, and Senator Frink
worked and voted for the measure. It
is no doubt largely from a sense of
gratitude for the aid given him, and
with a lively appreciation of Senator
Frink's honesty and fearlessness, that
Mr. Arrasmith has consented to aban
don temporarily the many business
: interests requiring his personal atten-
I tion so as to give the lie, by his conduct,
j to the false charges brought against the
I republican candidate for governor by
| the ignorant aud malicious.
Forged for Ten Dollars.
A farm laborer giving his name as Joe
Corbrett is wanted for alleged forgery of
a $10 order upon John Stover, a
' farmer, which Stover cashed. Corbrett
and a friend named G. G. Delzel had
worked a few days for Stover. Delzel
gave his employer $li l, with a request to
! keep it until called for, as he did not
! want to carry it about. In a few days
both men left his employment and
! entered that of a neighbor. Tuesday
; Corbrett presented an order for Delzell's
money, stating that the latter had left
euddenlv for the east on account of a
sister's illness, and that he had ad
vanced Delzel the $10, taking an order
on Stover for the money he knew Delzel
: had left. Though the order is a bung
line forgery, Mr. Stover had no sus
j picions, as he knew the men to be
i friends, and turned over the money. In
a few days Delzel appeared and demand-
Ed his |10. Mr. Stover later notified
he sheriff, but was a little late, as Cor
brett had been turned loose just before
at Walla Walla, where he had been
picked up by mistake for another man
upon request of Sheriff I anutt. The
sneriH knew nothing then of Corbretts
forgery, and as he did not answer the
description of the other man wanted,
was turned loose and made tracks.
Trip to Illinois.
Mr. and Mrs. M.A. Rose returned Fri
day from a three weeks' trip to Chicago
and Mr. Roses old home at Elgin, 111.
Returning, they stopped over at Omaha
to visit relatives of Dr. A. E. Stuht. Mr.
Rose had a special eye out for business
conditions, and says he was told every
where he stopped and by local travelers
met en route thut business was never
before so good throughout the middle
west as now and for two or three yenrs
past. As to democracy's claim that Illi
nois will be carried by that party, Mr.
Rose says: "Never fear about Illinois.
The state is solidly republican by from
75,000 to 160,000 Wherever I went in
the state I was told this by those iv po
sitions to closely estimate the vote and
the temper of the people, who are gen
erally satisfied witu conditions following
republican success. They are not desir
ous for change, except, of course, among
the professional partisans."
No Longer General Manager of the
Populist Campaign.
The mid-road populist central com
mittee held a meeting Monday afternoon
to whoop up the campaign. The most
important work done by the 20 com
raitteemen present and the ten or fifteen
proxies waß to fire Shorty Brown from
the position of chairman of the execu
tive campaign committee, without wait
ing to hear from him as to his manipu
lations at the fusion convention.
At the meeting of tht county nominat
ing convention of the mid-roaders it was
decided to not name delegates to a state
convention unless a mid-road, straight
populist convention should be called.
Notwithstanding this action of the con
vention, lirown assumed the authority
when the fusion convention met to ap
point himself and C. A. Ross as delegates.
They divided the remaining 25 votes be
tween themselves and represented the
party without authority. For this they
were fired and read out of the party.
J. H. St. Lawrence was elected perma
nent chairman of the committee and V.
E. Bull of Pullman secretary in place of
Daniel Conrad, a wheel horse from"
Oakesdale, was chosen to fill the va
cancy caused by the resignation of A. J.
.Stone as representative in the Sixth
legislative district.
A committee was appointed to also
select a man to take the place of B. W.
Powers, also resigned as representative
for the Sixth district, and a school
superintendent, vice E. R. McCorey, re
signed. These are the only resignations
from the ticket.
C. E. Hoover has been chosen for
school superintendent.
The committee will meet again Oc

Palouse Farmer Who Proves They
Are Profitable.
A few months ago the Palouse Repub
lic published a statement from W. Wol
heter regarding the cost of raising a lot
of hogs which Mr. Wolheter had jest
disposed of and the profit realized,
some exceptions were taken to the state
ment at the time, but Mr. Wolheter has
again proved his point by disposing of
a bunch of hogs fed on 40 cent wheat,
at a profit which leaves raising wheat
for market away in the shade.
The pigs referred to this time were sold
to EL C. DeHeaumont August 30, for 5
cents per pound. They were 16 in num
ber and their total weight was 81G0
pounds, or 197!? pounds each, bringing
at 5 cents per pound, $158.
One litter of eight pigs was born
March 12, and the other litter March 14,
making them IG9 days old when mar
During this time it cost Mr. Wolbeter,
according to his own stateroentjust $71
to feed these pigs and the mothers.
Three dollars aud sixty cents of this
was potatoes at '"59 cents per 100
pounds, and the remainder wheat esti
mated at 4-0 cents per bushel. The only
other feed given the pigs was waste from
the kitchen, which of course cost nothing.
Mr. Wolheter thus had a profit of $87
on his 1G hogs. As will be noticed by
the figures, the average gain per day in
weight was a little over one pound per
Mr. Wolheter has always made a profit
on his hogs, aud says it is his opinion
that a few hogs would be a paying in
vestment for any farmer id this country.
