STRUCTURE illlS f
Bolton & Bodmer, who have been
engaged in the agricultural implement
business In thisclty for 10 year or
more, are now getting ready to enlarge
their present quarters by practically
tearing down their present building.
A- two-stpry structure, 80x115, will
soon occupy the present site.1 The
Improvement will cost In the neighbor
hood of J8000. C. D. Goodnough .has
the contract. ' "
When any business thoroughfare
but the principal avenue : of a city
takes to building, It Is a sign of gen
eral prosperity and municipal en
largement. In a short time, now, the
brick structure of the iJl( & M. com
pany will be erected only a block from
where the Bolton & Bodmer new Im
plement house will stand, and It will
lend a color of prosperity to that sec
tion of the city. The hammer and
saw will create a noise pleasant to the
ear of the city as a wjiole., In a brief
space of time.
Labor Journal Started.
Walla Walla, Sept. 23. "The Gar
den City Monitor" Is the name of a
new publication to be established
through the Trades and Labor council
of Walla Walla next month, the publi
cation to be Issued by Jess Ferney,
providing the laboring men of the city
pledge enough subscriptions to make
the venture a success.
A committee which was recently ap
pointed, together with deelgates to the
Trades and Labor council, are working
on the peldges for subscriptions, and
as soon as 600 cah subscriptions have
been secured the first edition will be
launched. It is probable that the first
number will be Issued about October
10, after which It will appear every
It is the intention of Mr. Ferney to
make the paper at the start a four
page, seyen column publication, cov
ering all the news of the labor world.
It will be the offllcal organ of the
Trades and Labor council, and It is
believed that a subscription ' list of
fully 2000 can be secured.
For a number of years the labor
bodies of the city have felt the need
of a paper in Walla Walla, and now
that Mr. Ferney has consented to es
tablish one In return for a sufficient
number of cash subscribers, members
of the various labor bodies have taken
up the work of securing the subscrip
tions. The Monitor will be a non-partisan
sheet and will keep clear of ny af
filiation, except In cases where the
election or defeat or certain candi
dates Is desired by the labor Interests.
