JUL - 1 ff ) I a J mm J I ,'.11 r ' JJilutLUl: There's a good deal of satisfaction in knowing that the clothes you wear are of good quality; all wool and well-tailored Part of the pleasure in wearing clothes comes from knowing that they are of the right quality. There's a lot of cheap clothing made and sold; it's made so that you'll think it is good, and you'll pay for what you think it is. It isn't even low-priced sometimes. The advantage to you in our Hart, Schaffner & Marx clothes is not simply in what they are all-wool, correct in style, perfectly tailored; it's in what you know they are. When you wear these clothes you know you are right; the mental attitude is worth more than the price of the clothes.

Wuh., Which Una Been In I li st Pliuv for Some Time Amount Slilpixil from Con don Mist Smihoii , Wns 1,300.000 UiihIm'Is. FOR BE fill, Nil Denver, Co!.. Jan. 27. Still a fu ture event in the minds of the pub He. the democratic convention at Denver has already assumed the guise of a present reality to railroad off cials, who ivre beginning to hink out schemes for taking care of the crowds without confusion. Regular trains will be made longer and many special trains will be run. Long before the democratic dele gate has brushed the dust off his plug hat and sent his frock coat to be refurbished, the operating men In the railroad offices will be working overtime on emergency schedules. Th!s selection of a city so far west an the place of convention Is without precedent. It introduces new prob lems for the carriers, since the lines of railroad in this section are much fewer than In the Mississippi val ley and on the Atlantic seaboard, Denver has no fear lest Us guests suffer from lack of accommodation. Ever since it was a collection of huts it has been called the "tourist's city." The railroads may dump thousands of. delegates Into It In two days, but the "Queen City of the Plains" will refuse to 'be disturbed. Denver did not 6ffer $100,000 .to the democratic national committee for nothing; It j tnew what It wanted, and it !s going, to be well prepared for the crowd. ! nulhling the Auditorium. Work on the mammoth auditori um is two-thirds completed. Of the total 1500 tons of steel which will go into the building, 1009 tons are now in place. By far the heaviest part of the work is done, and the contractor ys that he will be ready to turn over the finished Job to the city on the first day of May. The $425,000 for the erection of the auditorium was raised through a bond sale voted by the citizens of Denver. The auditorium is 60 feet long, 168 feet broad and 93 feet high. Its normal seating capac'ty will be 9. 000, but this can be increased to 11, S00 by utilization of aisle space. Committee rooms adjoin the main hall, and, If there Is any overflow of committees, the democratic club, three blocks away. is available. Railroads Getting Ready. From the timelines.? of it one might suppose that the double-tracking of the Union Pacific railroad, between the Mississippi and the Rockies, was undertaken for the particular bene fit of the democratic eonvent'on. The construction of the second track by sections, has proceeded steadily dur ing the last four or five years, and now the Union Pacific has the only double track line west of the MIs Jouri 'river. Many of the Improve ments now under way will have been finished when the poI tical gather ing is held in July. Westward Into Denver the Union Pacific will run special convention trains over Its two znain stems one line through Nebraska from Omaha and I he other through Kansas from Kansas City. The Nebraska route will be taken by the delegates from UJe North Atlant'c states, while the delegates from further south will find the southerly route more con renient. ArriWng at Denver, the trains enter a magnificent un on sta tion. It is at the foot of the slope on which the city Is built, and Is within a short distance of the big hotels. Excessive heat has been part of the history of moi-t political conven tions. The president makers go back home and tt-11 their families and WYOMING IS FOR TAFT. That Condon, O 'Ilium county, Ore gon, hns wrested from Rltzvllle, Wash., the honor of being the great est wheat shipping station In the United States, Is the statement made In a telegraphic dispatch sent out from Condon. The statement gives Condon a unique honor In the ship ping circles of the United States and is as follows: One million three hundred thou sand bushels of grain Is the past year's crop output to be shipped to the outside world from Condon. This enormous showing makes Con don the largest primary grain ship ping point In the United States. Last year this honor of having shipped 1,250,000 bushels of grain. Th's-statement has come to a ma jority of the people In this vicinity as a great surprise, as only a few had given the figures a thought. The figures, which have been gathered from the local agent of the O. R. & X., show that 1.100,000 bushels have thus far been received at the station, part of which has been shipped while the remainder Is awalt'ng shipment. From men who keep posted on the movement of grain it Is learned that about 200.000 bushels are still scat tered over the county, which will be brought to this point for shipment, making a grand total of 1.300,000 bushels of wheat and barley as Con don's contribution. No less remarkable Is the output delivered at the other Gilliam sta tions, which all told for this county will sum up to 2,500.000 bushels. The average price has bpen 70 cents per bushels in this vicinity. The ranch ers of this district are looking for ward to another most prosperous year, and land deals have been made during the last few months which will enable many to farm on a much larger scale. tain their Interest as heretofore, but Mr. Loldlaw becomes the princpal owner as Mr. Lyman was before the trade was made. Mr. Lyman has not yet determined his future business course. Ho will stay on the Red Apple farm until spring and may then move to Mor row county, unless he disposes of his recently acquired proporty there in the meantime. The Red Apple farm lies on the mountainside about three miles north of La Orande. It contains In all about 200 acres and a largo portion of the land Is In benrlng orchard and there Is also a big tract set out in young trees. Mr, Laldlaw. the successor of Mr. l.ymnn Is becoming quite extensive ly Interested In Orande Ronde fruit lands. Resides his' present Invest ment he last year became the owner of a young orchard of about a hun dred ocres near Imbler. friends how they nearly stewed in the convention hall at St. Louis or Kan sas City, or wherever It was. The conventions are always held In the summer, and somehow the weather man seems Invariably to be lavish with humidity and a knockout tem perature. But Denver says it will not be so thexe. They don't know what It Is to have a really hot spell In Denver, and the oldest inhabitant can draw a crowd any day when he begins to tell of a wilted collar he saw 'way back in '59. Further back than that nobody can remember the city for there wasn't any. In 1858 the single log cabin of a pioneer constituted the beginning of fast growth that Is unparalleled In the h story of a fast-growing na tion. Today It Is a modern city, with handsome buildings, beautiful parks, a great public library, schools, clubs, hotels, theaters everything that a center of civilization should have. The famous gold hunt of '49 had little civilization effect on the Colo rado country; It was aimed further west. Even In 1870, 12 years after the pioneer's cabin was built, the population of Denver was less than 5000. Recently In the United States senate, Senator Scott of West Virgin It, made a speech In which he spoke of his old mining days In Colorado. "I went to the site of Denver," said Senator Scott, "when there was no Denver there, when it was Inhabited by the prairie dog, the rattlesnake and the owl." "In 1870 the Denver Pacific and Kansas Pacific divisions of the Union Pacific reached the city, and the population figures began to Jump. When President Grant proclaimed Colorado a state on August 3, 1876, Denver's population was about 25,- 000. It was 35,000 in 1880, and In the next 10 years it Increased to 133,- 859. With a population estimated to day at 175.000, the city Is confident that It will have passed the 200,000 mark when the next decemlnal cen sus Is taken. FAKEIt FEIGNED ILLNESS. Walla Walla Store Artist Fail to Fool Old Physician. The case of W. C. Bingham, the stove artist, who Is wanted In other parts of the state for crookedness. Is said to baffle the physicians" In charge, says the Walla Walla States man. Yesterday Mr. Bingham bad an awful siege of lung trouble so serious, Indeed, that he despaired of h's own life. County Physician Stiles was called, and after a careful ex amination announced that the man's lungs were not In the least affected. Seeing that his last hope had about fled. Bingham contracted a bad at tack of heart trouble, and again Dr. Stiles made a flying trip to the Jail. After another careful examination. In which the prisoner's heart was found to be performing Its ordinary func tions, the doctor looked over h's glasses at Bingham and remarked. "You're a fake." Bingham, according to the authori ties. Is wanted In Colfax and Palouse City for fiauds similar to that for which he was arrested here, and he will, in all probability, be called upon to answer the other charges as soon as he ha satisfied the claim of Wal la Walla county officers. Sentiment or People for Ohio Man Since Roosevelt's. Absolute Refusal. George E. Paxton, member of the national republican committee from Wyoming, is spending the day in Ba ker City and when seen by a Her ald reporter In regard to the politi cal outlook In his state he said: "I can hardly say Just what the wishes of the people are at this time for the state Is In a very peculiar eond'tlon and the public sentiment has not yet crystallzed. "The voters have not taken much Interest In the political situation, not nearly as much as Is usually mani fested at a time preceding the na tional convention. . However, the pa pers are In favor of Taft and I think that the majority of the people will support him when the time comes for them to decide. "I do not think think that the dele gation from Wyoming to the nation al convention will It Is very probable that they wUl be In favor of Taft." When asked about a third term for Roosevelt he said: "Roosevelt him self has killed his third term boom and the people of my state are will ing to abide by his decision, although If he should run again the whole state, both republicans and demo crats, would be In his favor." Mr. Paxton Is a business man of Wyoming and Is here in the Interest of the Evanston Coal company. At the present time Instead of the coal supply being short there Ih more coal on the market than will find a ready sale, and the cause for this Is very apparent.' The closing down of a large number of the smelters throughout the west has thrown about 15,000 tons of coal on the mar ket each day that would ordinarily oe used ror the mines. His company Is doing a very good business at the present time, however, and have op ened another mine. , The unemployed of Boston march ed to the state hou yesterday and demanded work. IMPROVED TELEPHONE SYSTEM, Home Company at La Grande Making intensive Improvements. The most modern and un-tn-dnte central energy system of telephony ' to De installed by the Home Tele phone company in the city of La Grande, at once, and to do this, the company has purchased and stored In this city one and a half miles of lead cable and 2000 feet of underground bitumen fiber conduit, which Is to be submerged in the principal business section of the city, says the La Orande Observer. Within a few days rl gglng of the three foot trenches will commence and with It the laying of conduits and the cable.

It Is learned from a reliable source that an effort Is being made to have the Soo Limited, the first train over the Canadian Pacific from St. Paul to Spokane, extended to Portland via Walla Walla, says the Walla Walla Bulletin. Notwithstanding the fact that It proved a wonderful suc cess operated to Spokane, It was tak en off at the beginning .of the win ter season when travel was expected to drop off. This matter will probably be brought to the attention of the Com mercial Club In an official way In the near future and If Walla Walla will put forth the proper effort It will have what Is In effect the main line of a transcontinental railroad within the near future. The offi cials of the operating department of the C. P. R. have already signified thelr( willingness to secure this serv ice and with the support of the busi ness men of Walla Walla it is prob able that a double train serv'ce be tween Spokane and Portland with only one stop and that at ' Walla Walla, connecting with the through service to the east, can be secured. The first Intimation that such a plan was under contemplation leak ed out at the Canadian Pacific hotel opening Monday, which was attended by newspaper men from all Import ant uuicn iii me nortnwest, including Walla Walla. The Soo Limited Is one of the finest trains ever run over an American railroad. CUT RAILROAD RATES. If Roads Withdraw Mileage Books Wnshhurton Railroad Commission Will Ijook Into Rates. Railway passenger rates through out this state may be cut to 2 cents a mile, unless the Great Northern either retires Its mileage books or changes their form, and this the rail way company refuses to do, says the Walla Walla Bulletin. The contest, which will probably be tried In the courts, has arisen over a rule which the commission has pro mulgated, and which the Great Northern refuses to obey. Tho order In question requires rail way companies In dealing with mile age books to Instruct their conductors to pull only such number of coupons as would be equivalent at 3 cents to the regular fare. One Instance Is that the exact dis tance between Seattle and Olympla is 73 miles, which would cost pas sengers, at 3 cents n mile, Just $2.19. The railroads, to meet competition, charge only $1.80 a trip. When, how ever, a man Is travel'ng on mileage, the conductor pulls 73 miles. The commission rules that he must pull only 60 miles In order to give the man owning mileage the benefit of the rate of 2 cents a mile, at which rate he has paid for his mileage book. The railroads say that If the rule of the commission bo enforced by the courts they will ret're their mileage books. Commissioner J. C. Lawrence has stated that the retirement of mileage books will probnbly be fol lowed by the Issuance of an order by the commission for a hearing on the subject of reducing passenger ra'es to 2 H cents a mile. The railroads can. If they will, avoid the controversy by Issuing a mileage book like that recently put out by the O. R. & N.. where the m'leage coupons are designated In cents, and the conductors are requir ed to pull only the regular fare be tween stations. Instead ,of coupons representing the actual mileage.

It was also learned today that there is a shipment of 10,000 guns on the way from the east, consigned to the Philippines. It will be remembered that 16,000 rifles were forwarded to Man'la upon the transport Sherman on the 6th of this month.
