ECHO IS A CITY. yJ
L. A. Esteb, Attorney, Elected First
Mayor.
The vote on the incorporation
proposition at Echo yesterday, stood
28 to 10 for, which makes the burg
a "city."
There were no disturbances dur
ing the day, though the feeling was,
to put It mildly, intense.
The protestants against incorpora
tion had "economy" as their shibbo
leth, urging the expense of maintain
ing a municipal government as a
deterrent against voting for the in
corporation. The liquor question
was a side issue which was recog
nized, but which was not organized,
and it is understood that the bulk
of the strictly "dry" element refrain
ed from voting for the only ticket in
ni,i whifh. it will be noted, re
ceived practically the same vote as
did the incorporation prujiumuuu.
The only division so far as tho
ticket was concerned was on mar
shal, and the contest was purely on
personal grounds.
The vote on candidates was as fol
lows: .

London. Feb. 3. Redmond, in be'
half of the nationalists, demanded
home rule for Ireland today In the
house of commons. There was fre
quent cheering, He said the present
government had pauperized and de
populated Ireland.
He said no greater delusion could
be entertained until that question
could be got rid of. Neither force
nor concession could relieve the
British government of necessary con
sequences of maintaining a system
opposed to the will of the governed.
He predicted that If the liberals
came into power they could get the
Irish vote on the promise of home
rule. He said:
"Our present government is cor
rupt. Ireland would rather govern
herself badly than bo governed well
by another nation. Ireland lags tie
hind in commerce and agriculture!
art because the education board was
Imposed on the country, which was
antl-'notlonal, narrow. Incompetent,
and should now be swept Into the
dust-bin. The government's tttltude
on the university educational plan is
dishonest. The government's prom
Ises have been false."
The Irish gave Redmond a tre
mendous ovation when he had con
eluded.
