They were not wholly in accord with the views of some of the various committees, but after they had been adopted and discussed. State Land Commissioner Ross, following the example of Governor Mead, openly Indorsed them and agreed to be governed by the sentiment they ex pressed, so they were not opposed. There is no reason to doubt the land commissioner's sincerity, and there fore it may be assumed that the de partment of the interior will go ahead with the work of the reclama tion service la the Yakima valley. The department is now free to act as it sees fit in regard to the land se lections by the state under the Carey act: at all events Mr. Ross will not attempt longer to have the selections approved by the department, which action would result ■ in indeflntely 'postponing the work of reclamation which the majority of people have hone of seeing aecomplisned. The mcc ing was an interesting one at all times, and the advice of Congressman Jones to "get after Ross" was followed out. The dele gates were as follows: Yakima Commercial Club —Walter J. Reed, O. A. Fechter, Tra P. Engle hart, Alex Miller, W. W. Robertson. George Donald, A. B. Weed, A. E. Larson, A. W. Coffin and Frank horsley. Ellensburg Commercial >. lub— Ralnh Kauffman, Edward Dickson, R. B. Wilson, Andrew Olson and W. H. Talbott. Sunnyslde Commercial Club—Pr. Chamberlain, S. J. Harrison, W. B. Hridgeman, W. H. Cline, Lee A. Johnson, E. J. Young. Prosser Commercial Club—E. F. Benson, G. W. Hamilton, K. B. Wil liamson. Mabton —W. L. Leonard." A committee consisting of one delegate from each of the four clubs represented, was appointed by Chair man Kauffman as members of the committee on resolutions. The committee consisted of Kauffman of Bllensburg, Fechter of Yakima, Ben son of Prosser and Bridgman of Sun nyside. Eventually, Mr. Ross, him self by common consent, was made a member of the committee. And This Is One of Many. Three years ago M. Srhorn pur chimed four lots on North Natchez avenue for $250 each, or 91,000. |At the time this was considered a pretty good price for the lots, for the town had not built up around them ;is it has since. A few days ago Mr. Sehorn sold one of theite lots to Dr. Helton, who recently came here from Salt Lake City, for $1,100. Mr. rii luini has therefore made $100 on the deal, and mill has three of the lots. This is a fair Instance of the increase in property values In North Yukitia, and shows there is good won«y yet to be made in real estate. Mn. I. M. Krutr and son, Clifford, returned home from the Sound last Frida; accompanied by Miss Marjorle Krutz. who has been spending some time ia Seattle under the care of an eye specialist. Her condition gave her parents considerable uneasiness, but th< treatment her eyes have re ceived has bad a tendency to allay the anxiety somewhat and it la thougnt with due care the trouble will soon be entirely overcome. BEATEN BY THUGS. Carl Ingler Held Ip Last Xigtif- They Overlooked His Pockrtbook. Carl Ingler, a young man who has been employed on the ranch of Pleas Bounds in the Belab, was held up by a couple of thugs on Front street last itight about 11 o'clock and beat en badly about the head. His in juries are not dangerous, however, an.", he Is able to be about the street tnday.His assailants were captured and are now In the county Jail. "I was walking along on Front street near the Chinese laundry." Ingkr stated to The Herald, "when a couple of fellows who had been standing with their backs to me as I approached, turned on me. One of them said 'hold up your hands, you —,' and when I refused ho began to hammer mr with his re volver. I was not rendered un conscious, but I was dazed, and while I was this way they cut my trousers and tried to get into my pockets. They failed to find my money, how ever. I had about $60 on me. After they gave it up and left me I started up the street, and met two police men, who took me to the police headquarters. They got Dr. Tetrau and he dressed my wounds. I do not know whether I could identify the fellows or not. I had never seen them before." A number of men who were down on Front street at the time Inglerwas hurt, Joined In the search for his assailants. Patrolmen Kahoe and Frost rounded up a couple of sus picious characters In less than half an hour, who are doubtless the men wanted. The gun with which Ingler was beaten was found hidden behind Fletcher's saloon. One of the men who was arrested was covered with blood, which he was unable to satisfactorily account for. He gave the name of Burns. His "pal" is a fellow who was sent up from North Yakima some time ago for selling booze to Indians, and recently re leased under the ruling of Judge Hanford regarding the rights of In dians to purchase liquor. The men have not yet had a hearing. NOW READY TO PROCEED WITH ELECTRIC ROAD lOimini-erx Begin Work Today—Mr. Ko*e Believes Council Will l'uss Franchise Ordinance. "We believe," said J. H. Rose to The Herald yesterday, "that the city council will grant us a franchise that will be fair to us—which is all we ask—and at the same time accepta ble to a majority of citizens and tax payers of the county. 1 think we have done all that could be asked of us to show our good faith, and the intention to carry out the agree ments we have made. Just what the ordinance as finally passed by tiie council next Monday nlnht will be I have no idea, but as the com pany intending to build the electric road is willing to meet the people of Yakima half way on any reasonable proposition, I am sure we will arrive at an understanding. So certain of this is the company that the chief engineer, K. C. Hawkins, will arrive tomorrow morning, and he will lie gin work immediately. He will bring with him some of the best en gineers in the northwest, from Seat ne, and a number of local engineer will also be employed. "There is nothing new to say In regard to the plant) or intentions of the company. We mean business; the franchise Is not. being soimht hh a speculation. Mr. Loga, who is associated with me, purchased R residence on South Eighth street yes terday, and his family, who have Just arrived from lowa, will move into it at once. We are all ready to go to work In earnest. The promise of aid and expressions of encourage- ment received on all sides are veiy gratifying. Mr. Dunn, Mr. Sawyer and other residents of Parker Bot tom were In the city yesterday and gave me every assurance that there would not be the slightest difficulty in getting a right of way through tnat section." Nothing further than a general discussion of the franchise ordinance resulted from the special council meeting last Wednesday. It is thought, that the forfeiture clause will not stand In the way. as Mr. Rose and his associates do not seem to rare how that feature Ih arranged, so long as It Is satisfactory to the council and a majority of the citi zens. While some of the citizens are opposed to the granting o f n,,, franchise for private reasons, the majority who have expressed them selves appear to think that If it is granted to this company the road will be built at the very earliest date possible, and that it will be for the best interests of the city and the sur rounding country.

Several officers of the local company have been assigned to duly as instructors In tactics and rifle practice.

This Itinerary will not be completed for several weeks, and will be an enjoyable trip to those who arc for tunate enough to be selected.
