another interesting journalistic rec
ord, in the ahape of "The Daily all

of the office. It may be aeveral week

The Electric Line
From all accounts that tan h. ...

doubt that the men interested in th.
proposed electric line now feel as
sured that the finances will he f,.,(,
coming the moment the rights of way
rc .., .ecured. This is good news.
The nghta of way are said to be in
excellent shape, and the only thing
to be done now is to olck nn the

inp, nave not yet been secured it is
understood that SO per cent r,f h,.,

nances were to be secured when that
extent of the right of way had been
ootained. Upon the whole it is said
the property owners have hern n..h

or two have held out and refused

trouble. It is stated that it may be

necessary to condemn the strip across

According to friends or Dr. Pea

speedy recovery so that he may re
turn to Cathlamct and take up his
affairs there. His trial, wherein he
is charged with having brought about
the death of the Longtaine girl, is set
for February 24 and it ia understood
he ii anxiously awaiting this to take
place, for he seemi to feel assured
that it will be a very easy matter to
convince everybody that he is entire

Various men of Cathlamet whn
have been in the city during the pasfl

will be "impossible" to find a convic

to be a pretty general conviction in
the Washington town that no inrv

It seems that Mr. Lonetaine h-,.

physician, and Dr. Peacock's eager
aesire to get back home shows that

already have been sent into his body

In a letter to this paper in resard
to aome of his advertising, Herman
Wise adds a bright account of where
he is and what t good time he is bay
ing back East. The letter was writ
ten from the Palmer House. Chicano.
and Mr. Wise stated that he was then
in the midst of a snowstorm. In an
other letter to i friend Mr. Wise
gives a snappy account of his errand
back there and many here will be
doubtless glad to read what is writ
ten. In part he says:
" . . I determined to personal
ly hasten the shipment of my spring
stock, for I learned by experience
that letter writing does little good;
up-to-date merchants from every
where flock to Chicago and New
York and express the cream of the
new things to their respective locali
ties, as each wishes to be the first to
show the new crup, so here I am in
the midst of a snowstorm." .
Mr. Wise states that the styles for
spring and summer show many radi
cal changes, especially for young men
"The time is fast coming when
each up-to-date firm desiring to keep
to the front will be obliged to have a
man here in the center of things,
where the bratnest designers get up
new things continually, and I am eo-
ing to arrange to have such a repre
sentative here to look after my inter
ests, thus getting the new thines as
fast as they come out. After a couple
of days more I shall run over to New
York and gather some more cream
from the style shops there and hurry
home. I enclose a few verses from
the Record-Herald to which I have
added one of my own. ..."
The verse that Mr. Wise added of
his own composition is as follows:
Pays to Advertise
When other clothiers tackle
Old Herman in this town.
They find themselves outwitted,
For Wise is hard to down;
Before they know what's happened,
He hikes toward the East.
And for his many patrons
Selects a clothinir feast:
The choicest of fabrics
Made up to please the eves
Backed up by honest dealing proves
it pays to advertise. - , .
