Bull Fighting in Yakima.—Spain and
Mexico have their famed bull fights, but
grander and not so brutal contests are
often witnessed on the Moxee company’s
cattle ranch between the long horned
Hereford and the polled Angus bolls.
These thoroughbred cattle seem to have a
natural antipathy for each other and will
fight for hours. One of these magnificent
Itrutes will sometimes await with head in
air and (Ire in eye the passing of a whole
band of cattle to seek some well matched
foe of the other breed with which to give
battle. The polled cattle are the quicker
of the two, and seldom receive any in
juries from the horns of their antagonists.
When the foes have made their match,
they will back off for a distance of ten or
fifteen feet and then make a terrific charge,
coming together with fearful force. Oc
casionally the nimble and powerful polled
Angus will get his head beneath the
breast of his Hereford rival and throw
him clear into the air. These fights will
often last an hour, to be renewed, after
the antagonists have quenched their burn
ing thirst at a neighboring spring, and
continued until exhausted nature patches
np a temporary truce.
A Bm Way to Independence.—
“There in more money in hogs (or the man
of email capital than anything elee,” said
H. H. Allen, of the firm of Snipoe A
Allen, the leading cattle raiaera of cen
tral Washington, to a Herald represent
ative the other day. “I will give yon an
illustration,” he continued, “which will
convince you. Of course you know, with
our cattle interests, we have little time to
devote to hogs, but in 1887 I invested $l5O
in Berkahires. Since that time I have
sold hogs to the value of S6OJ, cured S9OO
worth of bacon and hams, and have 50
head of hogs left. If better returns can
be shown in any other business on so
small an amount of capital invested, 1
would like to hear of it” Mr. Allen is
right. With alfalfa to fatten and grain to
harden any man with small means can
get independently rich raising hogs in
the Yakima country.
A Badly Needed County Road.— The
settlers of the Cowychee valley are ex
tremely anxious for the county to give
them a road along the creek, from Silas
W. Morton’s ranch to the Cowychee
bridge. In the past year a couple of
county roads have been vacated and
fenced in, and, as a stfult, the fifty or
sixty families in the Cowychee are obliged
to travel over a heavy grade and away
around by Wide Hollow in order to reach
North Yakima to do their trading. In
addition to the proposed road saving ma
terial distance in travel, the grades are
much easier, and double the amount of
freight can be hauled per wagon. Citi
xens of North Yakima should co-operate
with the settlers of the Cowychee in this
matter and use their influence, by peti
tion and otherwise, with the county com
tnissiongrs to have this road established.
Vancouver & Yakima Railroad.— The
construction train has finished distribut
ing the gravel for ballasting 6 miles of
track, and the first section of the road
on the west is practically completed. A
side track has been put in at logging camp
/ No. 1, and the hauling the logs for the
' mills has commenced. Another engine,
f heavier than No. 1, has Iteon ordered, and
and will arrive for use on the road in a
few weeks. Construction work on the
second section is going steadily forward,
the fine weather being improved to the
full extent.
The Situation at Ro.-lyn.— The negroes
imported to the Roslyn coal mines have
lieen put to work and there is every pros
pect that shipments from mines Nos. 1
and 2 will soon lie made. The disturbing
factors of the white miners have gener
ally left for other parts, and those miners
remaining are in the main property hold
ers in Roslyn and the best class of the
late operatives. A gentleman recently
from Roslyn says the remaining whites
may be given an opportunity to go into
the mines with tlie more sombre-hued
Sai-r or the Prosser Figuring kfiix.—
The Prosser roller flour mill, one of the
host properties in the county, was sold
thia week by Mr. Heinssrling to George
Taylor, of the Wenas, for $12,500. Emery
Taylor will at once move to Prosser and
take charge of the mill. The Horse
Heaven country, which will ultimately be
come one of the most extensive and best
grain producing sections in the territory,
is directly tributary to Prosser, and will
insure that point becoming in time a
flourishing town.
Burning or Kinneyvillr.— Jas. Kin
ney, of the might-have-been town of Kin
ney, located a few miles from Prosser, ex
perienced quite a loss from fire Wednes
day night, February 14, when his dwell
ing burned to the ground. Mr. Kinney
was in the bouse and asleep when the
fire started, and had barely time to get
oat, let alone saving any of the contents
of the building. The fire was evidently
the result of sparks thrown out from the
. stove.
The “Mammoth’’ Mine.—A. J. Knott
and other Portland capitalists have made
a proposition to bond, for $50,000, the
Mammoth mine, located in the Cle-Elum
district, and develop the same. The own
ers of the “Mammoth’’ are A 1 Churchill,
Jeff McDaniel. T.. J. V. Clark and J.
Greeves. The assays received from this
mine rpn from sixty to nine hundred dol
lars per ton, and it Is considered as good
if not the best mine along the Yakima.
Bau or iRR College Addition.— J. H.
Thomas and Allen C. Mason recently
platted the College addition of 72 lots in
the northeastern part of the city. A few
days ago Mr. Mason sold his half to John
Vanderbilt, of New York, for $2500 and
yesterday Mr. Thomas sold his interest
to Mrs. Gertrude Robinson, of Corning,
N. Y., for a like figure. The sales were

A Frightful Res a way.— On Sunday
the 17th inst. a serious runaway accident
occurred at Ellensburgh which nearly
proved fatal to three lives. Miss Viva
Wiswell had been visiting friends at Kl
lensburgh for several weeks past and had
made all preparations to return home on
that day. Mitchell Gilliam, accompanied
by Mias Prowell, sister of C. 8. Prowell,
had taken Miss Wiswell in a carriage to
the depot and was aliont to assist her to
alight on the platform when an engine
“blew off” steam. The horses became
frightened, wheeled suddenly around,
and dashed madly up the street. Mr.
Uilliam held on to the reins as long as
possible and was dragged over the road
for some distance but finally the lines
were wrenched from his hands and the
team then flew on unimpeded. Miss
Prowell was thrown out, early in the run
away, and her head struck against a tele
graph pole with great force. Hhe waa
picked up in an insensible condition and
continued in that state all day and the
following night, during which time her
life was despaired of, but good medical ser
vices and careful nursing have placed her
in a fair way to speedy recovery. Miss
Wiswell found no means of escape from
the carriage. At Sboody’s corner she to
was thrown out, but made a fortunate land
ing and received no injuries more serious
than a bruise or two, and a severe shock
to her nervous system, which have kept
her confined to her bed during the past
week. Mr. Gilliam’s injuries are slight.
Rapid Incebase in Valuations.— Five
yean ago the Holton track, which was
bought last week by the Ontario Land
Co., for |35,750, was sold for the mere
pittance of SOO. Is there any country in
the world where property valuations have
advanced more rapidly than in Yakima
and yet the prices are still much too low
and are bound to continue on the upward
move. The representatives of the Onta
rio Land Co., which is a very wealthy
corporation, have traveled all over the
country and have large holdings in sev
eral of the progressive southern cities, in
Duluth, Spokane Falls and Tacoma, and
in every instance have their Judgment
proven good and their investments profit
able. The com pan v propose holding a
portion of the Holton tract for capital
grounds and to plat and improve the bal
ance. A street railway is one of the im
provements in view.

city that carries a full line exclusively of
gents’ furnishing goods. Also, we would
remind the people of North Yakima that
we will sell our winter stock of underwear
very cheap rather than carry it over to

Will Be Prepared.— A Tacoma paper
Bays, in speaking of the removal of the
capital: “When the hour of conflict ap
proaches Yskimw will be prepared for
the fight, not with her ammunition wasted
in a futile effort to create a “boom” on a
future possibility, but with her batteries
loaded for victory with the confidence of
■access. ”
“Now, Haaman, captured by the host
of the king of Hyria, waa a great man with
his master, and honorable, because by
him the Lord had given deliverance unto
Hyria; he was also a mighty man in valor
—but he waa a leper.”
The above waa the text of a very pow -
erful and searching sermon we bad the
pleasure of listening to a few evenings
The eloquent divine explained that
Haaman was a great and powerful man
socially and politically—a force In the
kingdom ol Syria; “but” he waa a leper.
There waa one drawback.
From this the worthy preacher Justly
drew the conclusion that there were many
exalted and noble men among us. Still,
it matters not how high or respected a
man may be, there is always a defect
aomewhere; that we all bare our “bate”
—an aphorism which extends to all man
kind, including even the “fair sex.”
Ah we sat under the “droppings of the
sanctuary” and listened to the inspired
words, our thoughts took a more worldly
range, and, whilst accepting the truth of
the statement— in invitum —as far as a
personal application is concerned, we won
dered if the same Just criticism might not
apply to municipalities, and, particularly,
North Yakima?
We need better school facilities. Our
rapidly increasing population demands
other, new and more extended accommo
dations. “But” if we must have a new
school house, where shall it be located?
The personal interest of one says here,
“but” another desires It there; -and thus
it goes all over our city, county and ter
ritory. The “huts” are depriving our
children of proper school privileges, stag
nating public improvement and growth,
and, for aught we know, keeping the ter
ritory out ol the onion.
Here in our city the envy and selfish
ness of the “bote” is unproductive of good
remits, and, if not heeded, will generate
a narrow public policy which will stifle
all progress.
We in this beautiful city cannot afford
to he under the rule of the “huts,” and
most in self-protection “hot” them into a
broad-gauge method of looking at things.
About the best proposition to commence
with is a new school bouse of elegant and
snitaMe equipments for our children, and
“but” the matter of location around un
til we suit the necessities of its patrons,
the children, without regard to the spec
ulative wishes of those who have lota
Prsnsgt Rctwrws.
