All North Yakima is congratulat
ing itself on the success of its cele
bration of Independence Day. Not
an unfavorable condition existed, and
not an unpleasant Incident of a seri
ous nature occurred. A much larger
crowd than had been anticipated was
here, but all were cared for and all
enjoyed the day. A notable fact
was that there was little evidence of
drinking or carousing: the crowd
was orderly and good-natured, and
the peace officers of the county and
city are deserving of special praise
for their efforts In maintaining order
and their watchi ulness in preventing
The parade was a happy surprise
to everybody. Even the most san
guine expectations of the committee
were surpassed. There were a large
number of floats, and they were
beautifully decorated. The award
ing of the prizes gave general satis
faction. The" contests at the race
track resulted In the same gratifying
success, and furnished very accep
taole amusement for the big crowd
of home people and visitors attend
ing. The fireworks at night drew
thousands of people to the south end
of Fourth street, where the display
was extensive and beautiful.
The speaking and exercises were
held on Natchez avenue. Hon. B.
F. Barge acted as president of the
day. Rev. Morton L. Rose, after
patriotic airs by Nagler's band, of
fered an appropriate prayer, and the
speaker of the day. John H. llniff.
was introduced. Mr. Bruff is one
of the city's youngest attorneys: he!
has not resided long in North Yaki
ma, but he has gained many friends
who are proud of his speech yester
day, and who predict a bright and |
succesful future for him.
Dr. P. Frank, as marshal of the
day, discharged the many duties that!
devolved upon him in his usual able
and gratifying manner. Much of I
the success of the parade Is due to
his efforts. The order of the pro
cession was as follows:

proposition to proceed at once with
the construction of the drain.
Messrs. Lane an 1 Bull, representing
the people who would be first and
most directly benefited, voted ngainst
the adoption of the plans. Neither
seemed to think the opinion of Mr.
Elliott, the government expert en
gineer, as to the proper place to lo
cate the drain, and the benefit to lie
derived from It, was well founded.
Mr. Lane thought the location was
not the proper one, and Mr. Bull
did not think that Mr. Elliott fully
understood the situation in its de
tails when he made the recommen
dation, and urged Its adoption. The
majority of the council -all the
other five- voting to adopt the plans,
they were adopted, and the city nt

ordinance to be presented at the next
meeting providing for the construc
