It. becomes my duty to announce that
1 have sold The Gazette to Messrs. How
ard and Charles Bramwell of this city,
who through former connection with the
paper and later as general job printers
have become so widely known that they
need no introduction to Gazette readers.
All but a small portion of my working
life thus far has been spent in the office of
The Gazette, and naturally I experience
a feeling of regret at parting company
with many good friends and relinquish
ing the steering wheel of the paper, but
this is mitigated by the knowledge that
the paper goes into good and competent
bands and will be kept up to the stand
ard and improved as time goes en. The
patrons of the paper during the many
years of my ownership have my sincere
thanks, and for my successors I bespeak
a continuance of the favors shown me
The transfer dates from October 1,1910.
To the Public.
In assuming the management of The
Gazette we do so with a feeling of satis
faction, brought about by the efficient
manner in which it has been previously
conducted by the retiring manager, Mr
Chase. The Gasette will still be pub
lished as a strong republican paper,
printed in the interest of the party as a
whole. The primary object of The Ga
zette will be for the general upbuilding
of our great Whitman county and for
the city of Colfax.
In taking over The Gazette we want
to aek all our friends to lend us their
support and help us to even improve its
present condition. There are many
things that can be done for the better
ment of any community through a local
newspaper, and The Gazette is anxious
to bring about these conditions and
asks the support of its friends looking
to that end.
Our job printing department will re
ceive the same careful attention that it
has in the past, and our personal ener
gies will be devoted to thie part of the
work, as well as the newspaper, in order
that our phrase, "work always ready
when promised," will still be a true one.
We may make mistakes, most people
do, and if such happen we want to as
sure our readers that it will be of the
head and not of the heart. Trusting we
may meet all the old friends of this
paper in our new capacity, we are,
Republican Ticket Is Strong.
The Gazette takes pleasure in calling
attention to the strong ticket placed by
the republicans of Whitman county for
the suffrages of the people at the Novem
ber election. Under the direct primary
law there was little chance for manipula
tion, therefore it can be truthfully said
that the nominees are the choice of a
majority of the republicans of Whitman
county and the Third congressional dis
trict. An the republican party is the
dominant party it is reasonable to ex
pect that the nominees of the party will
be endorsed at the polls in November.
This is the more apparent from the fact
that the nominees are well known to the
electorate, being business and profes
sional men of high character, several of
them standing for re election to import
Republicans should bury the minor
differences of opinion that prevailed be
fore the primary election, and sound the
tocsin .for the party of progress—the
party that has weathered the storms of
the past, and has shown its ability to
guide the ship of state at all times and
under all conditions.
Judge Grimebaw of Cbelan county has
declined the non-partisan (so-called)
nomination for justice of the state su
preme court. This will make room for a
democratic wheel horse of the Tolman
and William Hiekman Moore stripe to
get their names before the public.
COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON. OCTOBER 7, 1910.
"The World Do Move."
As Uncle Jasper would Bay. "The world
do move." Legalized gambling came to
an end in the state of Nevada on the
Ist of thin month, the laßt stronghold
in the United States to permit it to be
conducttd in the open. A dispatch from
Keno of that date nave:
"The star of gambling faded Friday
night amidst scenes that approached
the fun tempest of New Year's Eve in
some of the larger citieß. The hours
before the curtain dropped at the front
of the stage of chance were given over to
a revel in which both men and women
joined, and shouts and laughter and
song rose from singing throngs in the
glittering palaces of gaming and on the
illuminated streets. It was like the
swirl of the Mardi Gras.
"Society women of Reno, and women
who t-hine in social life in other cities,
here now to have marriage ties severed,
formed parties that mingled with the
general throng, lending brilliancy of rich
costuming to the scene.
"Music split the air. Reno turned the
funeral of its regnant vice into a fanfare
Let us ring down the curtain on this
scene. It is bad enough to think about
without being seen. But what of the
divorce business? How much longer is
it to remain?
The Morning Olympian says that
special preparations are being made for
the celebration in Olyjjpia on November
19 of the 50th anniversary of the first
publication of the Standard, the pioneer
paper of Washington, which John Miller
Murphy launched and has since success
fully conducted. The paper's birthday
will be celebrated by a banquet at the
Mitchell hotel. Many distinguished pub
lishera and editors will sit down at the
festive board. This will, indfed, be an
interesting event. Those acquainted
with the conditions existing in Washing
ton territory in 1860 and as they see
them in the state of Washington in the
year of our Lord 1910 can note changes
startling in their character and epoch
making in their formation. It will be
interesting to hear from John Miller
Murphy, still in the harness and making
the Standard a live and up to date paper
in every respect.
The blowing up of the Times building
in Los Angeles, resulting in wholesale
destruction of life, was a dastardly crime.
It is hoped that the culprits and the true
inwardness of the effair may be found
out. The Times and the labor unions
have been at war for year^, but no one
believes that the unions, as such, had
anything to do with th» hellish crime.
It is a lesson, however, for the uuions to
get rid of the anarchistic element that
honeycombs many of them, and it is
also time for the government to take a
hand in suppressing the many treason
able utterances he^rd on street corners
in most of our large cities.

An Exhibit Out of the Usual.
A unique exhibit will be seen at the
Toucbet Valley Fair, to be held at Day
ton, where a collection of weeds, gathered
from the different farms of the Touchet
country, will be on view. Every pest of
the fields, from the Jim Hill mustard to
the Russian thistle, will be there, making
a striking exhibit of what to avoid in
the cultivation of the wheat and fruit
ranches. It is hoped the exhibit at the
Touchet Valley Fair will start a warfare
against weeds and result in ridding the
fields of the pests that choke out thous
ands of bushels of wheat, barley and
oats and decreases the yield of fruit and
vegetables to a very large extent each

The readers of this paper will be pleased to
learn that there is at least one dreaded disease
that science has been able to cure in all its
stages, and that is Catarrh. Halls Catarrh
Cure is the only positive cure now known to
the medical fraternity. Catarrh being a con
stitutional disease, requires a constitutional
treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken in
ternally, acting directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system, thereby de
stroying the foundation of the disease, and
giving the oatient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature in doing its
work. The proprietors have so much faith in
its curative powers that they offer One Hun
dred Dollars for any case that it fails to cure.

SPRING SOWN GRAIN BEST
Weeds, Thistles and Mustard Choke
Out Fall Sown Wheat.
A dispatch of the Ist from Winona,
in the western part of Whitman county,
has this to say of crop conditions there:
This seanon has demonstrated, it is
argued by farmers, that winter wheat in
the Winona country muat give place to
the spring varieties. Notwithstanding
that this locality has always been for
Hpring wheat, there has alao been here
tofore a large acreage sown to winter
wheat. The total hes run from 20 to
35 per cent of the whole. This year it
was about 25 per cent. Next year it
will be lesß than 10 per cent. Many of
the farmers who have been winter wheat
advocates for years will plant all their
land next year to spring wheat.
The crreatest obstacle to raising winter
wheat is the weeds The mustard, china
lettuce and thistles come up early in the
spring and seem to get the start of the
wheat, damaging it materially and
making its harvesting almost an im
In the last five years (he total dam
age by the weeds has amounted to
thousands of dollors. In extreme cases
j;he fields have been left uncut. In ad
dition to its being less objectionable on
account of the weeds the spring wheat of
the bluestem variety always commands
a premium of from five to ten cents a
