Mrs. W. N. Washburn, Jr. of
Neah Bay, Wash., lost her life
aboard, the ill-fated steamship
Governor because she would
not leave her two daughters,
Olene and Sadie, the survivors

leave the ship just before she
sank, when it became appar
ent that her daughters were im
prisoned in the wrecked state
room and could not be extricat
ed and saved. They went down
amid the terrible explosion ot
the Governor's boilers. Seven
others who are missing, are
supposed to have drowned dur

Cold Springs Controversy to be
Settled; Messrs Booth , and
Barratt Are Now Here.
Opinion cf State Commission
as to - Where Work Should
Start Will be Followed.
That the long debated questm an
to the route of the Cold Springs road
and the place of starting work is soon
to be settled Is Indicated by the pres
ence here today of Chairman Booth
and Commissioner -liarratt of the
blate highway commission. The two
commissioners accompanied by Eng!--neer
Kelly are making a personal in
spection of the project today with a
view to getting first hand Information .
One of the mooted points is whether j
work shall start from the Pendleton
end of the highway or from Cold
Springs landing. 'It is being vignrousb
contended by many local people and
farmers that the greatest community
wncfit will result from starting work
from the Pendleton end of the high
way. County Judge Srhannep today
declared that the county court Is dis
posed to rely entirely on the Judg
ment of the highway commission and
pill accept the recommendations made
l.v the commission.

FARMERS WOULD SUFFER
IF SALES TAX PASSES
That the proposed federal sales tax
.-t J. substitute for the income and ex
cess profits tax is a dubious proposi
iio . especially when, viewed from the
standpoint of the farmer, is the belief
of Cecil Cosper, income tax expert.
"I have just computed what the pro
posed one per cen sales tax would
mean to two clients of which I have
knowledge." says Mr. Cosper. "In one
case a man during the last four years
paid a total of $4000 in income and
excess profits tax. Under the sales
tax plan thia man would have had to
nay a total of 14300 and the worst oftis
it is that, he would have had to pvjan increase in prices because each j

The argument behind the proposal , al tax. If the sales tax plan is adopt
