Their work lends confirmation to

of territories that voted "dry.'' The

In this connectior. it is only neces
sary to point out that men who Bre

velop a fruit ranch, must have a little
capital. Income properties of this
character cannot be developed In a
single season. Payments and Inter
est must be met and money must he
at hand to make the required im
provements. Generally speaking, it
Is impossible for any man to size up
the situation correctly in a day or
two while being drKon from one sec
tion to another. It will be strange,
therefore, if unscrupulous men do
not take advantage of the ignorant
and the unwary and lead them into
obligations too heavy for them to
In addition to this prospective
trouble, many homesoekors will un
doubtedly bring their families, ex

making a first payment and take care
of the future payments by day labor
until tho property yields an Income.
From a limited number of such cases,
no harm will result, but,if too many
seek work, the community's resources
Will be seriously overtaxed and Yak
ima will witness another instance of
what .). Pierpont Morgan would
term "undigested securities."
Such ii result can only lead to a
reaction, which will prove serious in

North Coast and Northern Pacific
Solution Can bo Beached.
Business men of North Yakima
think that the best interests of the
community require that there be no
increase in the trackage at the
Walnut, Yakima avenue and B street
crossings. In their opinion, as
voiced al the meeting of the Busi
ness Men's association Monday even
ing by Messrs. Alex. Miller, W. A.
Bell, John Weigel and others, there
exists, at the present time, sufficient
interruption to traffic at the cross
They are anxious that in the de
velopment of tho city. consequent
upon the entrance to this city of the
North Coast railroad, no further or
additional tracks be constructed
across these highways. They recog
nize that to prevent It they will have
a hard problem to solve, but. they
believo it can lie accomplished. To
this end it will he necessary for all
the organizations having the welfare
of the city at heart to co-operate
with the railroads in arriving at the
best solution of the difficulty.
It was suggested at the meeting
that the Northern Pacific railroad
may be influenced to carry on prac
tically all its operations, or a very
large part of them, north of tho ave
nue and to some extent north of B
street, while in its construction work
the North Coast can provide yards
south of the avenue and below Wal
nut. This matter, if attempted, will
leave some present property inter
ests along the line of the railroad
to be coped with.
The important question, however,
i in the minds of all who expressed an
opinion is to procure the best de
velopment without increasing the
barrier dividing the east and west
sides of the city and without multi
plying the difficulties and dangers
of crossing from one side of North
Yakima to the other
