No Harmony in Their Whitman
County Camp
A special correspondent of the Seattle
Post Intelligencer writs rbiv- of democ
racy iv Whitman eouDtj Bttder date of
Colfax, September 20:
"All is not harmony in the eatnp of
the democracy o? Whitman eoonty. In
fact, harmony in an unknown quantity
in tin tuaioa Ibid, and Ma result the
ticket is prreatly weakened. Although
the campaign is iiot .\et fairly opened
there is jealousy and bickerings among
the party leaders and candidates that
bodes ill for the success of the ticket.
If the executive commit tee has its way
there will be no active and aggressive
campaign in thin eoonty for the demo
cratic ticket.
At least that in what some of the
democnuic candidates and their friends
nre claiming. They are not at all satis
fied with the prospect of a halfhearted
campaign. They charge that S ,1. Thnd
wick, democratic aomiaee for superior
judge, has control of the executive com
mittee and will not allow an aggressive
campaign because it will hurt his chances
of election. A promin"nt democrat to
day stated this fact and said:
"Mr. Chadwiek expects to poll a large
number of republican votes. Iv fact, he
expects to be elected by th« votes of re
publicans. He fears that if the demo
crate make an aggressive campaign and
give the republicans hot. shot, ac they
naturally would, it will estrange repub
licanfi who are friendly to him and be
will lose their votes.
"Consequently he is opposed to an ac
tive campaign and wants to prevent
anything that will cau.<-e the republicans
to fight the ticket and lessen his chances
of election. He controls the executive
committee and bis wishes are respected
in this matter. If something is not
done to make a change in the plans al
ready laid the democratic campaign will
be mild aud non-aggressive. Other can
didates on the ticket are complaining
and declare their interests are being sac
rificed in the interest of Mr. Chadwick.
That causes ill feeling and there is a
noticeable lack of enthusiasm and har
mony. If this continues there may be
an open disruption lefore election, in
which event the democratic ticket will
suffer and the republicans will gain a
decided advantage.''
This state of affairs and the open fight
between the Rogers and anti Rogers fac
tions if! the democratic party make a
great lack of harmony and little enthu
siasm. The campaign is well ad
vanced, and the executive committee has
made no announcement of meetings and
has arranged for no public speakers.
The apathy which prevails in the demo
cratic ranks is earprising.
All the leaders, when talking of the
prospects in this county, ch>im they will
carry the county by a big majority for
Bryan aad the state and county tickets.
Yet they are doing nothing to bring
about this result, and some of the small
fry candidates for county offices are de
claring that their interests are being
sacrificed in an effort to advance the
interests of others.
It is hard to conceive BOW a party so
divided and apathetic inn hope to win,
and the beliel is gaining ground that the
leaders have no hop of electing the en
tire ticket, bin are devotiug their time
and efforts to trying to elect a few can
On the other hand the republicans are
active, confident and harmonious.
The republicans elected every county
officer in 1898, and d#rlf»r*» their ability
to do the sam'> this fall, but with iu
creasr<: majorities. They are anxious
that the democrats should get to work
and make ■ fifffat, for, as one of the
leaders expressed it recently, "It is hard
to make a fight against a foe who will
not 'ti^JT back" "
Talks Interestingly On the Political
J. W. Arrasniith, of Colfax, secretary
of the republican state central com
mittee, arrived in this city yesterday
and ai once assumed the duties of his
office at state headquarters in the Starr-
Boyd block, nays the Seattle Popt-Intel
ligencer of Saturday. Mr. Arrasmith,
who is one of the largest wheat farmers
of the Palouae country, brings encourag
ing reports from Whitman county. He
regards the county, once a hotbed of
populism, hs safe for the republican
"The situation," he said yesterday, "is
improving in Whitman county, ' and
there is no doubt of republican success.
The entire county ticket cannot but be
elected, as the fusionists have two tick
ets, a democratic and a populist, 10 the
field. With a divided opposition the
republicans feel sure of victory.
"The state ticket will also be success
ful in Whitman county, I believe, al
though there is some mistaken opposi
tion to Senator Prink for' governor by
the people who lmve been deceived in re
gard to his attitude toward the rail
roads while in the legislature.
"When the few republican farmers who
have- been iiliudly au-eptiug as true
groundless falsehoods put into circula
tion by Senator Frink's political ene
mies, have ha<! time to investigate they
will soon bud their error and rally to
the rapport of the entire state ticket.
"Another error ti.e voters of eastern
Washington have fallen into is thinking
that became the administration of QoV.
RogerH h«s been prosperous, Gov. Rog
ers is therefore entitled to re-election.
As a matter of fact, in my estimation^
Gov. Rogers is only benefiting like the
peopli- of the state generally, by the
prosperity following the election of Pres-
that-winter is coming
and that by buying
your fuel in large
quantities you can
get better rates.

ident McKinley four year ago.
"At that time thp nation w.-sr but
barely emerging from the throes of a
panic. Naturally QoT. VcGraw'fl ad
uiiuistratioij bad been seriously ham
pered by tbe hard times When Presi
dent IfcKinley was elected the whole
country immediately revived fruui the
effect of democratic maladministration.
Washington, in spite of her populist
governor, obtained n substantial share
of republican prosperity.
"People, taught a leason in economy,
mode money, became contented, paid
their taxes und thereby replenished the
state treasury. Now Gov. Rogers and
his followers point <o evidences of repub
lican prosperity as the blessings of a
populist administration. Nothing could
be more absurd.
"I am considerably interested in the
middle-of-the-road populist convention
called to meet at Spokane next month.
How the matter may be looked upon
this side of the mountains I do not
kuow, but, in Whitman county it is cer
tainly a popular move. There are in
the Palouse country many populists
who are honest and who care more for
the principles of their party than for
"They will welcome a ticket that they
can consistently vote and also keep alive
their party organization and their partj
name. The fact that they have a county
ticket in the field in Whitman county
will add to the popularity of the state
ticket move meat.
"The silver issue, as most people on
this side of the Cascades know, is dead
in Kastern Washington. The majority
of the republicans who four years ago
were hypnotized by Bryan into voting
tl>e democratic ticket, are coming back
quietly to their old political associations
and will vote for the entire republican
ticket this fall."
State Pays For His Telegrams To
Goodyear and Others.
If is believed by some of the state
officers that the state has paid for some
of Governor Rogers' private telt-grarus.
and after perusing the executive's last
statement of hie official account with
the local telegraph office, almost anyone
would be forced to believe that such is
the case, says the Olympian.
The bill was presented to State Audi
tor Cheetham, and that gentleman at
once made up his mind that the state's
business did uot require nearly so much
upo of the wires during last month. The
auditor did not at once audit the ac
counr, and started to ascertain the na
ture of the telegrams. Calling at the
local telegraph office Mr. Cheetham
mace inquiries, but the agent of the
company is strictly forbidden to give
any information as to the narure of
telegrams transmitted and would give
the auditor no information. After seek
ing elsewhere for something to substan
tiate his belief Mr. Cheetham finally de
cided that there was but one way to set
tle the question, nud that wouli be to
formally subpoena the recipients of the
telegrams ami force them to testify.
Tui* would, of course, necessitate a legal
scrap, and as the amount was not very
much it. wns thought better to allow the
account, which Mr. Cueetaam finally did,
aud the bill was paid.
The governor's official account with
tbe telegraph company usually does not
exceed five or six dollars per mouth.
Last mouth, however, the account raD
up to ovpr twenty dollars. Even this
mijiht uot have attracted so much at
tention, but for the fact that most oJ
the telegrams were sent or received on
August 23, just prior to the fusion crate
convention, and they were almost with
out exception, to the executive's lieuten
ants, members of the "cabinet" and
others. A perusal of the bill in question
is quite interesting, and the items are

Cushman's Kecihot Retort.
Tn a public speech to the republicans
at Wilbur on the evening of September
14 Congressman Francis Cushman was
interrupted in the course of his remarks
by 8 miner recently from Wardner,
Idaho. While Cufbman was talking on
the labor question this man walked up
the center aisle, and, holding a paper
aloft over his bead, exclaimed:
"I'll tell you what this republican ad
ministration did to me. This is one of
those permits issued to miners in Ward
ner. They made me hold up my hand
and take an oath before they wouid per
mit me to go to work."
Quick as a fll'ish Cusbraati replied:
"Yes, my friend, that is exactly what
that samp republican administration did
to me. Before they would let me go to
work as a congressman they made me
hold up my hand and take an oath to
support the constitution of the United
States and the laws of my country.''
At this point the applause was so
great that the miner fled from the ball.
Still More Counterfeiting. -
The secret service bns unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a large quantity of bogus bills, which
are so cleverly executed that the average
person would never suspect them of be
ing spurious. Things of great, value are
always selected by counterfeiters for im
itation, notably the celebrated Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters, which has many
imitators but no equals for indigestion,
dyspepsia, constipation, nervousness
and general debility. The bitters seta
things right in the stomach, and when
the stomach is in good order it makes
good blood and plenty of it. In this
manner the bitters get at the seat of
strength and vitality, and restore vigor
to the weak and debilitated. Beware of
counterfeits when buyiner o
