IN VAKIM* COUNTY COURTS
Mildred Wnllinn nu<l Vlvn Stump Ask
for Separation from llii.sbunds—
Cruelly ami Vile |MgW|t,
Mildred Walling and Viva M.
Stump wore enrolled Monday in the
long list of people in this county who
have become principals In divorce ac
tions. The number of divcrce actions
filed in Yaklma county within the past
30 days Is larger than for the same
period of time at any other time in the
history of Yaklma. This fact appears
to have become known to the public
as well as to those who have need to
watch the court records. This was
made plain Monday when a letter was
v received at the office of the clerk of
1 court addressed to the "Recorder of
Divorces." The title has been accept
ed and conferred upon C Roy King,
he, being the only untltled person in
the entire building. Moreover, he has
had a great deal of increased work
answering the telephone and saying
"no" or "yes" to women who are
' anxious to know if the husband from
whom they wish a separation has "put
up" the alimony.
Had Only Hour and Water.
Mildred Walling asks a separation
from Henry Walling because, she
says, he is cruel to her, profane when
he addresses her, calls her bad names
and uses undesirable language before
their three children. She says that
ho has neglected his family and that
he Is proflgiate. He left his family
at Bickleton, she says, one time when
he went to work at Prosser for the
Northern Pacific railroad, with no
food except flour in the house, and
they were compelled to live on flour
and water except what i-hey begged
from neighbors. Mrs. Walling asks
divorce and custody of the children.
The couple were married at Cleveland,
Kllckitat county, in 1896.
Says Language Was Vile.
Viva M. Stump, whose only child is
named Joy Opal, asks a divorce, from
John A. Stump, whom she married at
Southwlck, Idaho, July 21 1901. She'
says that her husband has called her
vile names, heaped personal Indigni
ties upon her, and that between her |
and her husband there Is no Incompat
abillty of temper which can not be
reconciled. She asks a divorce, $25
a month alimony and the custody of
their daughter. The husband In his
answer admits the allegation but
asks that he be given permission to
visit his daughter.
WARM SESSION OF THE COUNCIL
Temporary Victory for G Street Prop
erty Holders—Practical Engineers
Testify In Favor of H Street.
The ordinance granting to the
Yaklma Valley railroad a franchise to
operate a railroad on G street was
laid over until the next regular meet
ing of the city council at the Mon
day evening session of the body. The
action of the council came as a sur
prise to the supporters of the fran
chise and was an eleventh hour vic
tory for the G street protestants. It
was early evident from the tenor of
the questions directed at the witnesses
for the property holders that the
passage of the ordinance was a matter
of time, and the motion of Council
man .Smith to lay the matter over for
further consideration was the sign of
a weakening front on a prearranged
Fight for Xew lloute.
Under the direction of Attorney H.
J. Snively witnesses for the property
holders on (j. stree f laid before the
council the detriments of a railroad
Operating In tin; heart of a growing
and populous residence district. A
map showing the proposed lint: on G
struct, and its relative position to H
street, already occupied by the spur
of the Cascade Mill company, was
hung on the wall. The outline of a
new route, .showing the feasibility of
granting the franchise effective on H
■treet was outlined, and It was from
this basis that the fight of the protes
tants was made —and nearly won.
Several G street property holders
te.stilied to the detriment that the
granting of the franchise would work
on them and told of the danger to
life that would be occasioned by
scores of school children being forced
to cross the tracks on their way to the
Barge school. Engineers Noble and
Libby gave expert testimony showing
that the line could be Duilt and ope
rated on H street with less cost and
but a slight Increase in distance over
the proposed G street route. The plan
advanced by Engineers Noble and
Llbby was for the franchise to be
granted on H street, the road using
the Cascade spur, or be granted a
right-of-way on the south side of the
street. Engineer Marble of the Don
ald project and State Senator Camer
on spoke In favor of the G street

Lively Tilt With Ooiinlil.
During the eouise of Noble's re
marks he demanded to know why the
Valley road was BO nnxious to secure
a right-of-way on Q street at a great
er cost than on H street, and with
more detriment to the many. Hanker
Donald stepped to the front of the
:oom, and In an angry voice, almost
shouted "Its none of your business."
"You are asking the people
through their representatives in the
council for a franchise and the right
to operate a public utility, and they
have a right to ltnow, Mr. Donald,"
retorted Noble. The banker walked
back to his position by the door.
The arguments pro and con took
over three hours, and when the time
came for the reading of the amend
ments to the franchise ordinance
Councilman Smith Introduced a mo
tion asking that the granting of the
franchise be laid over until the next
meeting of the city council. The first
vote was lost In a tie. At the con
< hision of the reading of the amend
ments Councilman Smith again put
the motion to lay over the matter and
carried on the grounds on further
consideration, all members voting aye.
Wight Suites Position.
Councilman Wight went on record
before the council as opposed to the
franchise and stated he would vote
against the measure. He was the only
councilman who stated his exact posi
tion. The final talk of Engineer No
ble from the standpoint of a practical
engineer had a visible affect on the
attitude of some of the members. The
■ounell chamber was packed with the
supporters of both sides of the ques
tion. A protest from 75 property

AlmilMiiiiciil of MdMWi
An ordinance having for Iti puipoßß
the abolishment "f th<> Front street
"cribs," and embracing thr (lunger of
damage suits ;i; mm < the city. was
presented to the city council Monday
evening. Owing; to confllction with
the recently passed building ordinance,
the ordinance was laid over for fur
ther consideration. The ordinance as
read provides for the destruction of
all buildings that have fallen into de
cay by the city, after the service of a
seven-day notice on the owners. Af
ter the tearing down of the buildings
it is up to the city to prove that the
destroyed property was a fire, health
or moral menace.
Modes of l*rcx"ediire.
It in provided in the ordinance that
the chief of police, the health depart
ment, or the building inspector, sep
ately or collectively, shall report that
the buildings are menaces to the coun
cil before the taking of action. The
property placed under the ban by a
provision of the ordinance must have
decreased 30 per cent under the origi
nal value. City Attorney Allen stated
that he would not guarantee the city
from law suits resulting from the ac
tion of the ordinance, but was confi
dent of its validity. The burden of
proof Is placed on the city.

Residents and property owners
along G street would like to have a
few questions answered before they
believe that the proposed extension of
the Yaklma Valley railroad Is in any
way connected with the Milwaukee, or
with any other than the Northern
Wo know that Mr. Donald was in
the employ of the Northern Pacific
railroad during its construction; that
he has lobbied in its interests and
that he has opposed all other pro
We would like to know why the
Northern Pacific railroad has assisted
the Yaklma Valley railroad as It has
if It has no interest in it?
Sonic Questions VsUiml.
Is it the policy of the Northern Pa
cific railroad to assist other railroads
to invade Its territory? Does It give
a right-of-way on Its main line to a
competing railroad? And furnish the
engine and cars for the construction,
as It has on the Yaklma & Valley rail
road? Was not the said road built,
in part at least, with secondhand
Northern Pacific rails?
If the Yaklma Valley road is in no
way connected with the Northern Pa
cific why did Mr. Donald take Mr. El
liott, president of the Northern Pa
cific, over the proposed road before
anything was done toward purchasing
a right-of-way to the Moxee, which we
know he did?
Favors to Competing i-incs.
We know that Northern Pacific of
ficials have said that they Intended to
build Into the Moxee valley and other
parts of the Yakima valley. Such be
ing their intention, would they show
the favors to a competing line as they
have to the valley road? Has that
been their policy with other proposed
lines in this valley or elsewhere?
We would like to know when the
Yaklma and Valley road "got back
into the Milwaukee fold?" When did
Donald give his friend Elliott the
Hails fun Carry Traffic.
We are not trying to prevent the
j building of the road to the Moxee but
1 believe it can be built on H street as
easily as on G street and tvith much
less damage to property. We believe
that Is where It should k<>. There Is
a I ready one track there and we fail
to see why the track already there
can not be used and with much less
damage than on G street. We believe
that une track will accommodate all
the business of a lg-mile load and
also the business of a sawmill. We
don't believe the business would ex
ceed that done by many other single
track roads even If he runs his "hot
Would Welcome the Milwaukee.
We do not believe that the North
Yakima & Valley railroad Is in any
way connected with the Milwaukee
or any other competing company
built, and that would be a benefit to
the city and valley, for then we would
share in the benefit derived from it
and It would largely offset the damage
to our property.
But we can see no evidence of it be
ing anything but a little jerkwater
branch of the Northern Pacific, fath
ered by It and built by a man who has
always served It.
We believe it to be a part of the
scheme of the Northern Pacific rail
road to bottle up this city and valley
and prevent any other road from
building here, as well as to hinder the
completion of the electric line.
Electric Rood Throttled.
We know that with branches of the
Northern Pacific built Into the dlnVt
ent valley the harder it will be to In
terest capital in building the electric
line which we so much need. It
seems to us that if Mr. Donald wanted j
to engage in railroad building for his j
own Interest and the good of the city
and valley he would have given his as
sistance to the electric line.
