The fire originated in an old va-! TOWN OF MANSFIELD SWEPT BY FIRE cant barn supposed to have been caused by chihlren who had been us- ing the barn as a play house. There was a heavy wind prevailing at the time and the fire spread rapidly to acining buildings. Land Mark Destroyed The Leahy Hotel, an old time land mark was the next building to go and from there it was but a short time until 16 business buildings were razed to the ground. The destruction of the Power line which was furnishing juice to do the pumping was a factor in the heavy loss and only for the fact that con-/ nections were made with the G. N. I water tank the entire town might I have been destroyed. The Cross I Hotel, a concrete structure built some seven years ago, was destroyed This was one of the best buildings in the city and it is a heavy loss to that little city as they are now de- prived of all hotels. The Mansfield News, one of the leading weeklies of Douglas County, was also totally de- stroyed and is a total loss. This is a sad blow to our sister city and we all sympathize in their loss. their candidacy, the first day of fil- ing saw an unbroken line of nomi- nees making their way to the office of the county auditor to fill out a notice of candidacy. There will be a large number of candidates in the field by the time the lists close at 5 P. M., Aug. 12th. was the prediction made at the court house. It was guessed that there would be from thirty to forty names on the ballots by the time all those who have indicated that they would run have signed up. Nearly all of the present incum- bents have signed to stand for re- election. Only M. Brinkerhoff who has served two terms as superintend- ent of schools, and Will Wright, county clerk, have failed to sign at press time. Brinkerhoff is ineligi- ble and Wright says he will not run. The candidates, in their order of filing are: Dale S. Rice, republican candidate for county treasurer; W. E. Gamble, democratic candidate for superintendent of common school James H. Silverthorn, republican candidate for county auditor; W. S. Shumway, county ' commissioner, district No. 1, republican. D. C. Warfel, engineer, republican; M. E. T0nseth, clerk, republican; Eli Wil- son, sherriff, republican; George M. Littlejohn, assessor, republican ; B. L. Smith, Clerk, democrat. Only two democrats have filed so far during the time the lists have been open. They are W. E. Gam. ble, for county superintendent of schools, and B. L. Smith, for county clerk. All of the cndidates are residents of Okanogan except Gamble, who is from Loomis, and Shumway from Omak. Statements of the candidates who could be reached before the paper went to press follow: Dale S. Rice, candidate for county treasurer: "I consider myself entit- led to the support of the public in the election in view of the fact that he office has been conducted during the past two years with an efficient and careful business management If I am re-elected the office will re- ceive the benefit of the experience that has been gained in the past." JamesH. Silverthorn, candidate for county auditor: I will run on the platform of general economy and ef- ficiency." M. E. Tonseth, candidate for coun ty clerk: "My platform will be econ- omy consistent with an efficient ad- ministration. I will make a further .tatement later." D. C.

JULY 21st. 1922. [is ]J ,  _ ,, / |l NO Joy Pddin on his 00|de of the Fence ! R[PORI Of PR[SS MIllING AI PULLMAN Last Thursday we,locked our shop up and headed for Pullman where the State Press was scheduled to hold their annual meeting. We were accompanied on the trip by Editor Dodd of Pateros, and Editor Freeman, of Bridgeport. Thursday night was spent in Spokane and the drive on to Pullman was completed the next morning. Upon arrival, we found that all preparations were made to royaUy entertain the Editors and their wives We, after registering, were conduct- ed to Ferry Hall where we had din- ner and a fine dinner it was too. The meals were prepared by the do- mestic science class of the State Col- lege, and everything was first class. Just as good as could be bought any place and furnished to the visitors at actual cost. A dinner fit for an editor to cost but 29 30 or 40 cents. If some of our "wiseacres" through- out the country who think our school and young people are going to the eternal "Bow, WowsI" would have had a chance to eat one of these meals served by the domestic science class o the State College they would have to admit that our girls are learning to cook anyway. A business session was held Fri- day morning and afternoon. During periods between sessions we were regaled by vocal and instrumental music by the students. We also had an exhibition of the Radio and some good singing was heard. Friday evening we were the guests of the Lewiston Chamber of Commerce. After a drive down the famous Low. iston Hill, (which, by the way, is the most scenic roadway for adiso tance of ten miles of any road in the United States,) where a fine turn pike has been whittled out of the side of the rugged 'bluffs of the Snake river. The road winds be- wilderingly down, the mile and one ' half in a straight distance, until 'te miles have been driven before one] [finds themselves at the bottom of] the hill. We were then met by a I group of live business men and con-I ducted to the nearly completed $500, I 000 Hotel Lewis and Clark where an elaborate luncheon was spread. Wc were regaled by vocal and instu. mental music of a ve:y high order. An auto ride was then taken through I the orchaids in the vicinity and af- ter a couple of hours dancing by those so inclined, the most beautiful of all the happenings was the drive back up the hill, where twinkling lights of 30 or 40 autos and in the background the myriad lights of the town made a fine panorama of ever changing lights which will be "long remembered by those taking thi drive for the first time. Saturday was put in by the visi- tors attnding to the business session and talking shop among themselves. I Saturday eening at Ferry Hall we I were treated to a banquet by the Pullman Chamber of Commerce. I Toast were given and replys made by the College Faculty.

Stone and Webster', The Washing- ton Coast Utilities, and the Washing- ton Water Power Co. of Spokane are all mentioned as possible purchasers. ' It is known that engineers and ohe have been looking over the Okano- gan Valley Power Company's hold- ings recently. Among those who are reported to have made inspections of the Okan- ogan plant are Warren Marshall who is said to be connected in a financial way with the Washington Coast Util- ities and Charles Kincaid an engin- eer of Seattle. No definite announce- ment can be secured from any of the reported purchasers. The Okanogan Valley Power Co. covers a large territory with it's tran emission lines and it has been com- pelled to increase it's facilities sev- eral times recently on account of the growing demand for power in the dis tTict. BELIEVES IN ADVERTISING An outstanding feature of the me, chant's convention and Market week at Spokane July 31- August 5 is the presence of Fred P. Mann, the re- tail merchant who made Devils lake, N..D. famous nationally as the scene of his remarkable success as a re- tailer. Mr. Mann is a dielple of advertising and urges small town dealers to capitalize the advertising pssibilities of their home papers. xtaddition he ha splaced th lore of a luarter of a century of small town nchandising at the command of t2m merchants attending the Spo- 'ke Convention through the medi- um of a question box in Which he un- ctertakes to solve the problems that occur to the retailer in the light of his personal experience. The pro- gram for the convention is exception ally attractive and interesting. Busi- nesu will be subordinated thruout to the development of personal con- toots and acquaintances. STEAMERS DESTROYED BY FIRE The steamers Lewiston and Spo- kane have been 'destroyed by fire at their docks in Lewiston Idaho. The craft have been in service on the Snake river since 1895 and were val- ud at $100,000. The boats were[ owned by the O. W. R., &N railway[ which will take steps to secure other boats to handle the wheat crop. ors but they all gave expressions of gratitude and pleasure at the hospit- able manner in which we had been received. Sunday morning the drive home, a distance of 250 miles was begun. We arrived home tired and dusty but having fond remem- brances of the friendline of the people over in the eastern part of the te. NUMBER 5 I INVESTMENTS Says Floyd W. Parsons in a re- cent article in the World's Work: "It has frequently been said that money invested in public utilities and therefore devoted to a public service, should be satisfied with a lower return than money invested in other enterprises. "Such an assumption is absolutely unwarranted, for one person who has money to invest is always just like another. Practically everyone who has money strives to invest it where it will bring, the largest return with the,greatestderce of *safety. "If any one is offered an invest- ment in a public utility that pays 5 per ' cent and just as good an invest- ment in something else that pays 8 or 10 per cent, it is an absolute cer- tainty that the investment netting the lagest return will get the money. "Let no one overlook the truth that money is a commodity which we buy and sell just as we buy and sell grain or clothes or lumber. "A public utility or a municipality cannot buy money for less than oth- er peoRle pay for it, any more than the same utility or municipality can buy coal or labor less than it is worth in the market. "Every utility, no matter where it is located, requires new capital for continuous additions to it's plant, and it cannot get this necessary' cap- ital unless the corporation is permit- ted to earn and pay a fair return on the new money." WOMIIN/tCCIDFNILY SHOOTS HI:RS[LF Last week Mrs. N. T. Wilson, near Carlton Methow Valley, had a very narrow escape from instant death when she was shot with a rifle hang- ing on the wall. The gun was an automatic twenty-two calibre and Mrs. wilson in some manner brushed against the gun when it was discharg- ed three times. One shot struck her back of the ear and entering her mouth penetrated her tongue and then lodged in the jaw. Another shot struck her in the temple and the [ third one landed in her shoulder.. The badly wounded lady was rushed to Twisp, where Dr. Gossett dressed her wounds. Dr. Gcarhart of Wenatch- ee was summoned and afLer a ten hour period of uncounciousness the injured wonmn reT, ained senses and there are hopes entertained of her recovery. CODLING MOTH INSURANCE The Third Cover Spray The third cover spray should be completed below town by July 22; on Brewster Flat by July 25. This spray takes care of any strag- glers that nmy have escaped from the sprays for the first brood and from the thinning. If you have held the worm infestation down to nothing by proper spraying and care- ful thinning up to this time, you can rest assured that you will not be troubled much by worms for the rest of the season. If, however, you find worms show ing up in any numbers early in Aug- ust, spray every eighteen days until harvest time.
