REED I COE, Proprietors. ■amirißf nvuDAT. $2,00 PUR ANNUM. IN ADVANCE. iifei Up| inigUi^ B.M. Hasp. Editor and Business Manager. CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. We have at last reached a point where there is really something to do that will count toward making Washington a stole; and something to do which most be done promptly, carefully, and with a purpose single to the best interests of all. There will be no lack of advice in this matter. In the first place men must be selected for the constitutional convention, and it ahonld be borne in mind that this is not a political matter. The political part of the business will come on immediately there after, and we shall all have enough of it There will be no lack of opportunity for all the politicians in all the partiee to work their plans in the most approved fashion for six months; but let us come to the convention without any party poli tics. This statement is not made by the HatU) under the impreesion that it is an idea peculiar to us. All reasonable citiasna of Washington will, doubtless, find themselves bolding the same opinion, when they take the time to think about ft. Our purpose is to remind them that they had best bsgin thinking about it at once, then when the notice comes for election, they will not be confused and confounded by any hasy ideas such as duster about and befog most elections. We shall never again have another such an election. There * ill never be an elec tion la the state of Washington probably in which party politics cut no figure; hence the need to approach this one as a single body politic—all republicans of a republic and democrats of a democracy, with no dashing interests to conflict as the work of making the best possible con . stitution far all progresses. We want our beat men there; and it is never hard to pick them out When party strength and party policy is to be considered there is frequently great difficulty, and when the honor is an irksome one it is sometimes difficult to get good men to serve; and now the only way to get at the business of selecting the best man, will be to rec ognise a few simple raise for the deter mination of fitness at the very beginning. Every effort ought to be made, not only to select the best men, but to have a sort of recognised understanding that selection to this constitutional convention bm not the slightest relation to any future honors “that is, the mart selected ie not, by that foci, specially brought forward for any thing in the future, nor is he, by such •faction, honored and shelved out of the way of other ambitious men. Holding this in mind, no man of doubtful fitness would stand In the way of clearly the beet seen, because be would feel that be P*ned no such special advantage as an ambitious politician is always on the alert for. On the other hand, the beat man would not evade the honor for fear of be ing faft out of the next deal. Thesa mat ter! are ae simpleaathey ere important; and they are important for the reason that the people themselves are responsible far any leek of ability these may be in that convention, and far any resulting fealty work. It is, of coarse, possible to make each e muddle of it that we would not be admitted at this time, and it is •ran easisr to make a constitution that woold coat more for repairs than for orig inal contraction. Whatever else there may be to say on this Uveet of all sob facts, this la the first consideration—able man without reuard to party. new state officers. Tbs Spokane Falls Review says: One Muter will psrhaps be chosen from Western Washington and one from East «n Washington. Ex-Governor Squire of Beattie la talked of as the most likely to «fcoesn as the senator from the west ride, although there are other able and ambitious men in that longitude who may contest the honors with that gentle man. As to the east side senator noth ing can be said with any degree of cer talnly. As time goes on no doubt many wfll consider themselves called, but only one wfll be chosen. Delegate Allen will be selected either lor the aenatorship or •or the representative in congress in all Wobabißty. He Is a resident of Walls Walla, la one way or another Spokane Falls mart be represented either in the senate or lower house and as to which it wfll be will perhaps depend upon which positfan Is assigned to Mr. Allen. Hon. Edward Whitson, the mayor of North Yakima, is spoken of in connection with tbs governorship. He is a banker and a lawyer and has been prominently identi fled with tbs enterprise and industrial de vriopmsal of Central Washington. He was a member of the legislature several years ago and is a man of good ability. The secretary, treasurer and other state ofloen will doubtless be chosen from parts of tbs territory not otherwise repre •talsd. The political hive win soon be * * swarj^^^^^ to Is arid that Miles C. Moore, one of lbs most wealthy men of the territory md g resident of Walla Walla, is making a determined struggle to be appointed the neesasor of Hem nle as territorial governor, lbs tana of office will be abort but Mr. Moore wants tbs honor. The claim is made that John B. Allen is pledged to Mm f and that be wfU receive the support ef Senator Dolph, Senator Mitchell and Fan! Setwise. Tmb Han am* offloe Is last being put in rimpe and with tbs steam attachment and paper euttsr which have been ordered no nsunpapsr oAcs east of tbs mountains wik be hotter equipped. The plant is born Me printers* supply house of Palmer 4 Bey, Portland, and after a thorough tori tt has proven moat antisfaotory. At the time when it wee generally con ceded that the fiftieth congreea would let the eeaelon slip by without passing the admission biU the Board of Trade of Yak ima, with the welfare of the territory at heart and in hopes of hastening our en franchisement, petitioned the governor to call a constitutional convention, and ex tended the hospitalities of the city to the delegatee should Yakima be named as the place of meeting. This called down the wrath of the Beattie Pott-IntelUgeneer upon this piece and we were told that we were immodest and could “well accept from EUensburgh a lesson in good man ners.” On the 21st instant modest EUensburgh telegraphs to the various papers of the Northwest the following: The citisena of BUsasbargh, actios spas Us fsoeroas Impulse characteristic of thaw, called an Informal meeting, presided over by Mayor Abrams, who Is also president of tha board of trade, and extended a cordial invitation to the territory to hold a constitutional convention bars on tbs 4th of July. The P.-I. prints the dispatch, as ahe is bound to do in fulfillment of her contrast hot fails to make farther comparison of the manners of the two places. The Wickersham, or Pillowsham se duction case, as it has been dabbed, Is a nasty morsel for unclean tongues to roll around in unclean mouths. James Wick ersham, s prominent Tacoma politician, is being tried at Seattle for the seduction of Sadie Brantner. Wickersham claimed, and tried to prove, that the suit was insti gated by Radebsugh, of the Tacoma Ledg er, for political purposes,and endeavored to ■how by witnesses that Radebangh him self was criminally intimate with the aforesaid Sadie. The case baa brought many prominent personages unenvisbly before the public. The Sound papers, with modest disclaimer, pnpiish all of the filthy details which at times have reached a dramatic climax. Two witnesses weie fined, one committed to Jail, and the keeper of an assignation house testi fied that hundreds of Tacoma “ladies" have visited hie piece. The case is foul as fool can be, and those who have wal lowed in the mire or those who have l«en pushed therein will be besmirched. The jury brought in a verdict of guilty, and Wickersham was arrested for subornation at pwj'iry. Ik California the legislature authorised the forming of irrigation districts by which act farmers of a district can combine, issoe bonds and supply themselves with water. Such an act can be passed by the new state legislature with beneficial re sults to Yakima, Kittitas and other sec tions of Washington. Lra* Thompson and her troupe of Brit ish high-kicking blondes now occupy the boards at Tacoma, and matrons of central Washington, when their husbands an nounce that they have been suddenly ■called to the Sound on argent business, smile e knowing smile. The travel west ward ie increasing. R. K. Nichols and J. B. Reavis are prominently mentioned aa suitable tim ber to represent Yakima in the constitu tional convention. Should Yakima be entitled to two delegatee, no more capable representatives could be sent. The N. Y. World facetiously dubs Phil a delphia’s merchant prince John Money maker, and says he <Ud not bid in vain for a cabinet position when be raised $400,- 000 for republican campaign expenses. The “pan-handle” of Idaho didn’t “get there.” Washington had grown large enough to leave off knickerbockers and don a long-tailed coal without any out side assistance. Olthtu was named in the admiasiep bill as the place for bolding the constitu tional convention. This was a sad blow to modest Ellen of Kittitas. These will now have to be forty-two stars on the U. 8. flag. A Pmrietaeiu’i lyuiiiss. A. W. Nye, who has been spending a lew days in a survey of Ellensburgh and North Yakima, booming towns in eastern Washington, returned on Tuesday even ing from his sojourn, and was seen by an East Oregonian representative to whom be expressed the opinion that notwith standing Ellensburgh’s present lead, North Yakima would eventually become the town of that eection. "A good support for this prophecy,” Mr. Nye observed, "lies in the tact that the Northern Pacific railroad company is now making preparations to dispose of its property in Ellensburgh as soon as possi ble, while it has withdrawn its large pos sessions in North Yakima from the market It seems to me that this is a good indication that the railroad company knows, or thinks it knows, that the El lensburgb boom will soon collapse. "Another slight straw which shows the direction of the wind is the tact that a syndicate of St. Paul capitalists has pur chased two hundred and seventy acres of land near North Yakima lor |I2S per acre. This land the previous owner took op about five years ago, because he could secure no better, and afterwards held it because he wss too poor to leave It. The good fortune which struck him was like a lottery drawing. "Increased confidence on the part of North Yakimaites is caused by the sup position that the branch road of the Nor thern Pacific, diverging from Cheney, will strike their town, in the course*of time, and this Impression Is sustained by the movements of the company. It is be lieved that the Northern Pacific is on the inside track, and that North Yakima will secure the capital.—Eo* Oregonian. The Chinese railroad and other laborers, numbering about forty, in and about Tekoa, a town located on the edge of the Occur d’Alene reservation, were recently compelled to leave for other parts. About *OO whits men gathered, gave tbs Chinese "warning,” assisted them to pack their gripe and escorted them quite a distance on their way to Farmington. NTH $r nws.

President-elect Harrison and party are now at Washington and quartered at the Arlington hotel. Dave Wilson’s new hotel at Davenport will cost SIO,OOO. It is to have three stories, a Mansard roof and to be hard finished. Spokane has 44 saloons, 41 real estate firms, 23 grocery stores, 17 dry goods •tores, 15 hotels, 12 cigar atom and 11 meat markets. Johnnie Powers, 11 years old, wee taken to the county asylum si Orange Farm, N. Y., a raving maniac from the effects of excessive cigarette smoking. To become a policemen in Seattle a men must be five feet and ten inches in height, be between 25 and 45 years of age, must weigh 165 pounds and must not drink. Bell Boy, the famous trotting stallion, was sold on the 21st inst. to J. H. Clark of New York for $51,000, the highest price ever paid for a horse in the United States ■t either public or private sale. Waterville, W. T., Is having a boom. Last spring there were six or seven houses; now there are about one hundred booses and about three hundred inhabitants, with new houses going up all the time. There is but little doubt that the con fessional bill requiring residence of five years and ability to read the constitution in English before a foreigner can be nat uralised in the United States will become a law. Gwin Hick, deputy collector of internal revenue, has resigned, to take effect July 1. Aa Mr. Hicks was prominent in dem ocratic councils daring the late contest, Pfcaident Harrison may hasten his resig ns! ion. Dr. Joseph Parker of London has dis tanced all the sensational preachers in the race for popularity by his invitation to workingmen to come in their working clothes and bring their pipes and their dinner pails with them. Dr. Parker is evidently in no danger of falling into the soup. Washington territory leads every state and territory in the Union in the yield of wheat per acre. In the official reports of the government the greatest yield of any state is that of Oregon, placed at 16.3 bushels per acre, and the largest yield in the United States is accorded to Wash ington territory, being 18.5 bushels per acre. The greet Parnell-Loodon Timet suit is about finished. Pigott has confessed that the alleged Parnell letters, on which the hopes of the Timet were baaed, are for geries and that he, Pigott, did the forging of all letters ascribed to Parnell, Egan, Davitt and O’Kelly. Warrants are out for the arrest of Pigott on the charge of perjury and forgery but he haa fled. Davitt says that the Timet and the gov ernment have aided Pigott to escape. Kfitkitot Ceutj* Wertrlui Thinking a description of some of the peculiar and somewhat unique and won derful characteristics of Honey Lake val ley might interest some of your readers at least, I will tell what I saw on a trip to the east end of the valley. Honey lake, a body of water which in the past occu pied an area of several t bop sand acres, sank from sight in the month of Jane last and remained ont of sight np to within a week or two pest, notwithstanding two streams shoot the size of the Klickitat are constantly discharging their waters into its bed. At present it is very coyly com ing in sight again. The lake took its name from the great deposits of hooey dew in the early settlement of the valley. But at present I would mors particularly call attention to the boiling springs, a number of which rise near the border of the lake on the northeast side. These rise out of a level plain not less than a mile from the surrounding hills in a vast .tract of alkali as white as though covered with snow. There are quite a number of these springs, and they extend for three or lour miles along the border of the lake when it is at its largest extension. Each spring has some peculiar characteristics of its own. The largest one of all throws out a volume of water four feet wide and four inches deep as clear as crystal, and boils with such energy that the water comes up a foot above the still water around and Jets of water are constantly spurting much higher and the roaring, hissing and sput tering is so loud that our team would not willing go near. If this is the place dis covered by emigrant Dutchman when be so urgently requested Hans to drivs on for God’s sake for his satanic majesty’s dominion was not one mile away, one can hardly wonder at his fears. If some of our Klickitat bacon menu fact urns could Import this spring it would make a great siving of fuel. Ifeltofthis stream six or eight rods below where it issues from the ground and found that it was hot enough for scalding and 1 was told the water where it came from the ground was ttoiter than water can be made artificially. Here is a nut lor phil osophers to crack. The other springs, a number of which rise near this large ons, are of different degrees of heat, all from boiling down to cold. In ons place a cold and a hot spring are near enough together that by lying down, one hand can be placed in one and the other hand In tbs other. A large volume of steam arisss from the bead of the spring and for along distance along the stream its course can be readily traced by the rising steam. 1 was told by my guide that in the past an overheated dog one summer day cams running up to the pool at tbs bead of this spring and plunged in and could not and did not get out alive. I was also informed that it is excellent sanitarily lor sweet baths for persons who are troubled with rheumatism. The steam gives off a sul phuric odor. Administratrix Notice.
