Food for Thought.
The first number of The Wenatchee
Daily Republic, containing G4 pfiges and
bearing date August 27, has reached our
table. It ia metropolitan in every re
epeet, containing all the dispatches and
news of the day. Its typographical
make-up, fur neatness and attractive
ness, places it in the lead of any daily
publication en the Pacific slope. Its ad
vertising patronage is liberal, showing
the civic patriotism of Wenatchee's busi
ness men. Of course the Republic doe?
not propose to get out G4 pages every
day, but the first number shows what
they have the capacity to do, and is an
earnest of what may be expected of the
future. It has heretofore been aIG page
Wenatchue, with a population of less
than 6000, boasts two daily papers, and
good ones at that. Here is food for
♦bought. Wenatchee and Wenatchee's
products are known far and wide. Her
papers "carry the news to Mary," not
only telling of the products of the farm
and orchard, but carrying the advertise
ments of her business men and telling
from their own lips what they are doing.
Instead of sending out tona of pamph
lets, which few read and no one believes,
the Wenatcheeites send out their home
papers, which tell of every business in
the city and the daily progress made.
Wenatchse owes its growth and prot'
perity, not to its superior location or
greater natural advantages, but to ite
patriotic, intelligent and superior citi
zenship. Fourteen years ago it was a
struggling village of ponsibly 200 in
habitants. What made Seattle in th^
early days, when the Northern Pacific
railway tried to blot the Queen City off
the faci> of the map—known in history
as the "Seattle spirit" —has made We
natchee, which should be known ac th?
"VVenutchee spirit." It is men that
makes towns and cities —not luck. In
stance Portland, Seattle, Wenatchee.
We take off our hat to Wenatchee.
It might be a good investment for the
Palouse towns to import some of the
etock here, that the seed might germinate
and develop in our rich soil and even
That died-in-tbe-wool democratic
organ, the Colfax Commoner, has this
to say anent the insuriieuts: "Poin
dexter and the other republican insur
gents are advocating policies which a
large majority of their party oppose
and which a large majority of the dem
ocratic party favor. They have no use
for republican principles, but cling to the
republican uniform." And thie: "A re
publican insurgent is a man who wants
to help enact democratic policies without
affiliating with the democratic party."
The two will probably get together soon.
It will then be hard to know which is the
dog and which is the tail.
Republicans should not be deceived by
the extravagant claims of the insurgent
press that Poindexter has everything his
own way and is sure of election. On the
contrary, there is every evidence that the
insurgent congressman is losing ground,
and only for the hope of getting demo
cratic support is there the least prospect
of his being elected senator. Republi
cans have but to stand by their guns to
defeat the combination.
The Columbia Chronicle, published at
Dayton, remarks that "you will find the
same element among the insurgents that
was found in the free silver ranks in
1896. Experience shows that they were
wrong then, and experience should guide
the voters at the present time not to
listen to their wild-eyed assertions."
Judge Burke made many friends while
on the east side, bis statesmanlike atti
tude on all public questions appealing to
the better side of our people of whatever
political shade of opinion. He appealed
to the reason, not to the passions, of
men. He is a statesman, not a mere
politician bunting for votes.
It is apparent every day that Seabury
Merritt will be the choice of the republi
cans at the primaries on the 13th. Straws
show which way the wind blows. From
every part of the Third district good re
ports of Merritt are heard. Merritt is the
Brady for governor and French for
congreeß eeem to be winners in Idaho.
COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, SEPTEMBER 2, 1910.
More of Gifford Pinchot.
Gifford Pinchot, sitting in his eaey
chair at Washington, D. C, gravely in
forms the public that Senator Heyburn
of Idaho, Senator Carter of Montana
and Representative Mondell of Wyom
ing are responsible for the forest fires
that have been and still are ruging
throughout the Pacitie Northwest. It ie
susceptible of proof that Pinchot'e
methods of conservation are in large
part responsible for the wreck and ruin
seen on every hand.
"He drove the settlers and prospectors,"
gays Senator Carter, "who were the real
guards of the federal forests, out of the
country and left the domain to the
pranks of the lightning and the negli
gence of the campers. His patent leather
forest rangers could not meet a difficulty
which the old settlers overcame every
"I do not object to the expenditure of
money for the protection of the forests.
I do object to Pinchot's use of the funds
for lectures and a press bureau to ad
vance his personal ambition and to fur
ther his private ends. The policy estab
lished by Pinchot to keep the cattlemen
and sheepmen off the reservation was
"The long, dry grass, which the stock
devoured, was fuel for the fl'imes. It
started the fires. Pinchot is represent
ing Pinchot. His administration of the
forests has cost the ppople of Montana
and Idaho £20 000,000."
Even Senator Borah, who was talking
himself hoarse a short time ago in praise
of Pinchot and his policies, has? changed
front, seeing that public sentiment
throughout the Northwest is against the
lawn tennis bureau officer.
Poindexter will probably be the next
This from Spokane shuws where Poin
dexter stand?: "Five democratic candi
dates for the state legislature, in signing
the statutory pledge, inserted the pro
viso that they would support their party's
choice as long as he had a chance for
success. They will then switch to Poin
dexter. They are E. R. Weeks, Horace
H. Guth, J B Johnson, Bedford Brown
and William Mathews. The Poindexter
adherents are expecting much from the
democrats, which is indicative of how
near the congressman approaches the
democratic ideals of retrogression."

There is more Catarrh in this section of the
country than all other diseases put together,
and until the last few years, was supposed to
be incurable. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease and prescribed
local remedies, and by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced it in
curable. Science has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co.,
Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure
on the market. It is taken internally in doses
from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts direct
ly on the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system. They offer one hundred dollars for
any case it fails to cure. Send for circulars
