Foot* of Portland, who came here to lake/ charge of the paper during Wilson'a imprisonment, is charged same offense. Following is a statement gwcn? out by Wilson, especially for H'ha, Press this afternoon. ■ "Tuesday afternoon I wa%| fn| formed that I was to be arrestee orr sight. I was taken In custody about 4 o'clock in the afternoon and was taken to the office of Chief of Police Sullivan. Other officers of the department were there They asked me who the leaders of the I. W. W. were, and I Informed them that there were none. "They then attempted to .sweat me on this line. I asked to see a warrant for my. arrest, but they re fused to show me one. One of the men present said that I would see 'the rope' before I saw a warrant. All Tuesday afternoon and until Wednesday night about 10 o'clock, 1 was kept In a dark cell. "Most of the time there were from 20 to 28 men in the cell. The floor was slippery with vomit. One man who had an ague chill, from a malaria attack and who vomited all the afternoon, asked the doctor for medicine. This man was from a malarial district of California, and the doctor simply told him that there was no malaria in Spokane, and said: 'If yo uwere not all damned anarchists, you would not be here, and I will see you all in h —l before I give you any medi cine. If you open the door I will knock your d- head off.' The door, of course, was locked. "Our membership will refuse to eat until we are given something more than mouldy and sour bread. There were b2O men packed in one cell, and they were compelled to stamp their feet to keep from get ting stiff. This resulted In the offi cers removing the shoes from tho men's feet, and several of these men whose shoes were taken away from them have rheumatism. "Joseph Gordon, who was re leased, because of his condition, is again in jail, and is still in a bad condition.

Agents Wanted to write Industrial and Ordinary Life Insurance Good Income—Promotion—Best Opportunities—Now! WE'RE GOING TO HA YE A "SPOKANE PLAN" HERE In an exchange of ideas last ight at the meeting of the new larter committee the following lints were brought forth: That It Is possible to write a tarter that Is even better than le Dcs Moines plan, that will be nown as the "Spokane plan." nch charter to provide for a gov •nment by five commissioners, ith better safeguards for the •ople's Interests than is provided i the charter of Dcs Moines. That it might be advisable Instead of electing a mayor to have him appointed by his fel low commissioners, or to be designated by the people through the candidate for com missioner receiving the high est number of votes. That the commission Is di vided as to the proper method of regulating the awarding of public utility franchises and that a hot fight looks im minent on this point. Views on this question range all the way from that of a perpetual fran chise to one that will prac tically permit the people to take over the ultility at will WOMAN WORKER TELLS JAIL EXPERIENCE Mrs. Fernett, one of the women 1 arrested by the police In the freed speech demonstration, today de- I livered a bitter arraignment of the conditions in the Spokane city jail. "Two hours' after we were ar rested we were covered with ver min," said Mrs. Ferntt. "We were denied the use of soap and towels to keep ourselves clean, prevented from calling counsel or being brought to trial, while two women arrested for crimes against the state were given immediate trials and released on fines. They were given towels, soap and use of the telephone. We were told that we might get a trial at Christmas, and jeered and tantalized by the officers, as though we were caged Wild beasts or monkeys. "I was arrested Tuesday after noon at 2 o'clock and released Fri day afternoon at 4. During that time I made repeated requests to bo brought to trial, but was met with only gruff words from the of ficer In charge. He refused to tell me with what crime 1 was charged, and the last two days had me locked in a cell as though there NET OVER 25 PER CENT County Recorder Rutler states that the 22 pieces of school land sold at public auction this morning netted over 25 per cent above their appraised valuation.

Senator E. C .Whitney secured a section 16 miles northeast of Spo kane for $8250. Incorporated as a Stock Company by tbe Stale of New Jersey and Inaugurate municipal ownership. Jacob Schiller thought that by electing five councilmen at large to run the affairs of the city, and cutting outtlng out a lot of the antiquated ordinances now in the city code, the city hall could be run properly. % . fc Gordon C. Corbaley saw in the endorsement of the Dcs Moines bankers proof that tae new plan was working satisfactorily in that city. Fred Baldwin advocated the ap pointment of the mayor by the oth er commissioners. Frank T. Post, G. C. Corbaley, D. C. Coates and others seemed to think this idea a good one. D. C. Coates made a plea for a charter having for its object tho best Interests of the public. He stated that the root of all our po litical Ills was In the avarice and greed of public ultility corpora tions. He said the same diseased condition permeated our state and national government that obtained in our cities, and argued that if the members of the commission would keep In view all the time the was danger of my escape. Officer Jellsett was particularly obnoxious and seemed to be backed up by the chief in every indignity heaped upon us. "The first night In jail the steam was turned on to a suffocating de ed down ypip pnpnp pnpnpnppp free, until the perspiration stream down our faces. Then toward morn ing the heat was totally cut off, causing the cell to turn cold, giving us all severe colds.
