VICTORY FOR SALOON MEN.
Court Holds That a Liquor License Is
Not n Valuable Privilege.
OLYMPIA, Nov. 2. in the Superior
Court of Thurston County, this morning,
Judge Linn disposed of a question that
has been rather prominent in th!s com
munity lately, and one that is liable to
be the issue in the forthcoming city elec
tion. Some time ago the City Council,
on a ruling of the Mayor that It Cook five
votes to grant a saloon license, refused
to grant a license to two applicants. One
of the applications had four votes In Its
favor, and the other three, both, however,
being a majority of the Council present
and vjtlng. Mayor Relnhart held at the
time that a saloon license was a valuable
privilege, and that under the statutes the
granting of the licenses took five votes.
The saloon men at once appealed to the
courts, holding that a majority of the
Council only was necessary for such
license. Judge Linn this morning In over
ruling a demurrer in tho case held that
a saloon license was not a valuable priv
ilege under the statutes, and thus the
saloon men win a victory. The question
has been agitated to such an extent of
late that It promises to be the leading
issue in the coming election, which will
be held on December 5.
Two Trains "Were Smashed Up and a
Depot Building Wrecked.
ROSALIA, "Wash., Nov. 2. A rear-end
collision of freight trains occurred In front
of the depot here today. The engines
were badly smashed, two freight cars and
a caboose were wrecked, tne depot "was
wrecked and the building fired, and one
tramp was slightly hurt. s
The local freight tram was standing on
the main track. The engine had been
detached and was doing some switching.
No one attended the freight train. An extra
freight train, with cars loaded with wheat,
and pulled by two engines, came down the
track.' The train crews tried to stop the
train, but the grade was too steep. Seeing
a collision was Inevitable, the trainmen
jumped. As tho train had slowed down
none of the men had a hard jump and
none was injured.
GOOD PROGRESS ON STATE CAPITOL
Contractor Has Declared a Tempo
rary Suspension of Operations.
OLYMPIA, Nov. 2. Work on the State
Capitol has now reached a point where
the building Is almost ready for the
Iron girders, etc., and last evening all the
stone-masons and stone-cutters were laid
off by the contractor. The shut-down is
but temporary, as Contractor Goss Is de
sirous of seeing what the Capitol Com
mission does with his communication of
Tuesday before he proceeds further. Tho
exact nature of the communication cannot
be learned, but It is understood that the
contractor will make objection to the ar
chitect's plans. As to substituting wood
for Iron, the contractor has evidently
given up all hope of converting the com
mission on that point, nnd that matter
will not come up' at Tuesday's meeting.

The gratifying feature of the Increased

much as In the number of new settlers

as actual settlers who come here from
all parts of the country to make their
homea. The principal business of The
Dalles Land District comes from the lat
ter class, and the fiscal year will show
at least 1300 new homes In this locality.
In the number bf original homesteads

the lead with 50. Other counties are cred
ited as follows: Gilliam, 122; Crook, 18;
Morrow, 16, and Wheeler and Sherman 12

appropriated amount to 21.0SS.66, divided as
follows: Homesteads, 19,256.50 acres; des
