ELMER WILLIAMS JAILED.
Formerly Wai In Business In Walla
Walla, Where He Was Successful.
Walla Walla, April 28. Elmer E
Williams, who is charged with 'drug
ging two men in the famous Goo Goo
saloon in Seattle, is well known in

ber of years. Williams left this city

has been heard of by but few of his
friends since his entering business in
Seattle. At the present time he 1b in
jail In default of JbOOO bonds.
.Williams took up land near Touchet
.station in this county many years ago.
and it is said he still owns land h
this county. He managed a warehouse
at Dixie for several years, and was
considered industrious and honest
Then he came to town and took up,
politics. Williams studied politics
under Coblentz, the warden of the
state penitentiary, who committed su
icide when found short in his ac
counts. Under the instruction of Cob
lentz, Williams soon took a leading
place in politics in this county. He
was a careful manipulator and a re
lentless worker. For several years he
worked ln the interests of Levi An
keny, and at one time was a lieuten
ant at Temple flat Then he fell out
with his superior and for the last year
or two In this county he took a posi
tion of bitter opposition to Mr. An
keny's interests. After a telling de
feat nearly two years ago, the Wil
liams faction was so discouraged that
Wdlliams gave up politics and enter
ed the cigar and club room business
in Seattle. He left here about a year
ago and has not been back since. He
has a wife, but no children! .
The news of William's arfest and
the heavy bond fixed by the justice
at Seattle was a surprise to Williams'
old-time associates in thiB city.

Colonel John A. Joyco, of Washing

Wheeler Wilcox's poom which con

Weep and you weep alone,
has designed a mounmont for himself
upon which ho is going to have tho

I will not deny that It is a pet idea
with mo to assert, over my gravo, tho
authorship of "Laugh and tho world
Laughs With You." Wlion I wrote

tant of tho Kentucky regiment with
which I served throughout tho war. I
composed it at a banquet at Louis
vllle, and it appoared in tho Louis
villo Journal, then under tho ablo
editorship of George D. Prentice.
Tho little poom, of which I did not
think much at the time, soon attained
a wonderful popularity. It lias sinco
become moro popular, nnd has drifted
around In various Journals, without
my name, common prey for uny pla
