Family Pleas and Old Age Cause for
Step—Grey Political Warrior De
clares Enemies Would Fight.
OLTMPIA, May 4.—Secretary of
State Sam H. Nichols mailed his res
ignation to Governor Hay this after
noon. He will ask that it be Immedi-.
ately accepted. In his note to Gov-1
ernor Hay Nichols reiterates his inno- |
cence of any wrong doing and con-'
tends that his official life has been
absolutely clean. But he says his age'
and the importuning of his family
make him physically unable to en
dure the stress of further legislative
and court proceedings. He regrets
that he is not In his vigor and strong- j
ly intimates that if he were his
enemies would have all the fight they
were looking for.
Robert Prior Reports Excellent Per
centage of Increase in Flocks and
Good Conditions Prevailing.
Washington sheep which are driven
across the Oregon line to graze in the
Wenaha reserve will not need to be
dipped this year. The Oregon state
board of sheep (commissioners has
announced that no dipping will be re
Under the Oregon law all sheep
coming into th estate must be dipped
at least once each year between April
I and August 1, to cure and prevent
scab and other diseases. However, a
section of the law provided that
whenever in the judgment of the
siiu ■ board the sheep are free from
infectious and contagious diseases
they have power to suspend the dip
ping requirements of the act by proc
lamation. This has been done at a
meeting of the state board at Port
Much Rivalry in Past.
The rivalry in the past between the
sheepmen of the, two states has
caused many bitter quarrels and sev
eral expensive and vexatious law
suits, but it is thought this year will
end their troubles, at least as far as
the present season is concerned.
The sheep in this section of the
state are reported to be peculiarly
free from any infection this year. As
a matter of fact, except in a few iso
lated places, no trouble has been dis
covered for a long time and there
are bands where no dipping has been
required for six yearn.
Robert Prior, who returned to
North Yakima Saturday from the
Cowiche hills, where the Prior (locks
are, reported a very successful lamb
ing. The percentage of Increase in
the flocks is US. There are fewer
twins this year than for a great many
years previously but as against that is
the fact that the number of lambs
is lost is unusually small, practically
every addition to the flocks being a
permanent addition. I^amblng and
shearing are not yet over in that

Ivctter Introduced Prom Clifford Dy
nioml Kcnvtng Time at Walla Walla
A. H. Merrill Has Hearing Today
P. H. Kruse, a veteran cattleman,
who admitted on the witness Btand
that he was one time convicted of
| a felony, was given a preliminary
| hearing In Justice of the Peace Hunt*
' court Tuesday afternoon on the
charge of horse stealing. Kruße was
bound over to the next term of the
superior court with bonds fixed at
$1500. He was represented by Attor
ney Grady, the states case being con
j ducted by Deputy Prosecuting Attor
ney Moren. Kruse Is alleged to have
taken three horses belonging to three
Sunnyside boys and brought them to
this purpose of disposing of them.
Memories of Old Crime.
Kruse is 59 years of age, and has
lived in the Yakima valley for the past
twenty years. Memories of an old
crime in which the famous Dymond
Bros, were involved were revived by
the introduction of a letter written by
I Clifford Dymond In the state prison
1 at Walla Walla, authorizing Kruse to
dispose of his horses on the range,
and send him half of the proceeds
Kruse's defense was that the horses
found In his possession bore the Dy
mond Bros, brand. Upon this point
the attorneys disagreed, and it is llke
|ly that Clifford Dymond will be
| brought over from the state prison to
j testify in the case. Judge Hunt was
| of the opinion that the evidence was
' sufficient to bind Kruse over to the su
perior court. The horses will remain
| in the possession of the sheriff pend
ing replevin action.
Says He Stole Spuds and Chickens
The case of A. H. Merrill, a resident
of old town, charged with the crime
1 of grand larceny upon the complaint
of P. Callewart, will be heard in the
justice court this afternoon at 2
o'clock. It is alleged that Merrill stole
24 sacks of potatoes valued at $24 and
50 chickens valued at $25. The case
is the result of a partnership row.
Merrill is a married man with a fam
ily, and says he has been a soldier. He
was allowed to go upon his own rec
ognizance pending a hearing of his
case. Judge Hunt appointed John H.
Bruff to act as his attorney.
Report That White Bluffs Men are to
Bring Law Suits.
It is understood that several claims
for damages because of the non-de
livery of water are to be tiled against
the Todd company. Though over
eight months have passed since the
plant was destroyed last year, the new
plant was not in operation the middle
of this week. Some crops have suf
, tßred because of drouth and while
I water users have been very patient
I and considerate in waiting for adjust
ment of conditions they say they have
reached the limit, and the company
will be required to stand damage on
account of tardiness in preparation for
operation this spring. The ranchers
add that earnest efforts have not been
made to deliver water on time. Some
claims last year were settled without
litigation.—Prosser Record.

Overcome by Democratic Candi
date—Omo Bitterly Opposed.
SPOKANE, May 4. —N. S. Pratt,
democrat, defeated J. T. Omo, repub
lican, for mayor today by a majority
of from BOp to 700. While Pratt ran
on the democratic ticket, he stood on
a non-partisan platform. Great In
terest in the election was manifest
from the fact that the liquor Inter
ests are said to have supported Omo.
while Pratt received the support of
the church element and those who
were opposed to a wide open lown !
The comptroller also went to L'.ie
democrats, while the race for treas
urer is close.
The usual vote of this city is nor
mally 4000 republican majority. The
remainder of the ticket ns indicated
from practically complete returns is:
Comptroller, Farley, democrat; treas
urer, Peterson, republican; council

summoned for the May term of the

B. Scatchard and J. W. Gore did not
put In an appearance until after the
morning session. Of these Mr. Gore
was excused as he is over 64 years of
H. F. Goodlander asked to be ex
cused saying that he does not believe
in capital punishment. He thought
that to be a good reason why he
should not serve. Judge Preble did
not see it that way.
C. E. Blssell, rancher, pointed out
that he is in debt, that ho linds it dif
ficult to engage ranch hands and
therefore must attend to his own
work. The. money allowed him for
service as a juror, he said, would not
pay his expenses where as if he (served
he would be put to considerable lo«S
and the necessity of serving would be
a distinct hardship. Judge Preble
said that the excuse was one which if
accepted might become very general.
He hopes, however, to be able to make
the service as light for Mr. Dissell as
F. E. Stump who is in charge of the
city scavenger work, feared that the
work would bo neglected if he failed
to personally oversee it. He has sev

Complains That People Who Write to
Tlilh City for Information Arc Vic
tims of Walla Walla Men.
Complaint has been made by letter
to a local business man by a man In
California, who Is also a North Yakl
ma land owner, to the effect that the
Walla Walla Commercial club appears
to have some method of procuring in
side Information regarding letters
written by prospective settlers to the
Commercial club of this city. The
wrl'er says that he has induced sev
e-' " people to write to the club here
n? for information. These letters
=nys, have invariably been followed
by communications sent out from the
Walla Walla clul>. The writer says
that the WailnWnlln fellows are most
unusually persistent. That once hav
ing procured the name of a prospec
tive North Yakima buyer they will
not let up on it but keep on firing
letters and advertising matter with
great persistency.
Secretary .lame* Kipliiins.
The North Yakima recipient of the
complaint called upon Secretary
James of the Commercial club, show
ed the letter and asked If It could be
true ns alleged by his correspondent,
that the names of those who write to
the club here Income the property of
the Walla Walla men.
Mr. James knew of but one way in
which the Walla Walla men could
procure the Information they appar
ently possess. He explained that the
club here is engaged In an exchange
with the Spokane Chamber of Com
merce of letters of Inquiry and such
things. It may be that the Walla
Walla men have some method of get
ting in touch, at Spokane, with the da
ta sent from here. That is the only
manner in which the names and ad
dresses can be procured. The ex
change arrangement with the Spokane
men is a friendly agreement which
has been indulged in for some time
and which, it is understood, has re
sulted in much mutual benefit for
those Interested.

In the line of converts at the Sco
ville meeting last night was a man
of 76, the oldest convert of the meet
ing up to this time, as well as boys
In their teens and middle aged men
and women.
Scovllle spoke of home and home
building. He declared that a city
could be no better than Its homes. He
said Yakima should be proud of her
streets, her public building, outlying
orchards and splendid farms, but
wealth nor splendor could not com
pensate for the destruction of home
Influences which are pure and whole
He scored lying and white wash,
saying: "If I am called upon to
preach nt a saloon keeper's funeral
I would set a glass of whiskey on the
casket and let It speak. Hear It sing
of murder, arson theft, broken hearts,
virtue despoiled, Childhood blasted,
sorrow, sadness and woe. Hear the
echo. Whatsoever a man soweth that
shall he reap.
"Should I be called to bury some
Godless worshiper at society's shrine
whose life had been spent at card
parties, dancing and following a fuzzy
wuxzy faced dog about the street I
would place a deck of cards In her
cold, stiff lingers and say this was her
Bible, let her read title clear if she,
can and may (rod have nn-rcy on her
poor soul.'
The audiences continue large and
converts are being 1>: ought into the
church In increasing number.
Tonight Mr. Scovllle Will speak on*
