The Okanogan-Cariboo Trail map boasts of railways, bathing beaches, camping and other tourism attractions along what is now known as the U. Highway 97 corridor. The Chronicle refuses to print the article. April 1 — Gas rises to 37 cents per gallon. April 8 — The BilesColeman mill in Wenatchee announces it will begin operations that week, expecting to turn out 1,, boxes per year. Other Indians attested to her power, but the court said the control of evil spirits was not a proper defense. April 29 — The Ruby mine ceases operations after the death of its president, but expects to resume soon.

It resumes June June 3 — State legislation requires automobile licenses to be enforced after Aug. July 15 — Building permits now required within Omak city limits. Continued on on Page Page 2. The plans of this organization now call for a cut of ten to fifteen million feet for the season and in their efforts to do this, they now have some 4,, feet of logs already piled on the skidways along the three and a half miles of logging railway they have run up Wanicut creek.

This lumber is all to be made up into boxes at the Omak box plant of this company this spring and summer and means that more than 2,, boxes are to be manufactured at this place. At the present time, a crew of forty men is being employed at the sawmill and thirty-five more are in the woods getting out logs. Within thirty days, it is planned to have the sawmill running a full twenty-four hour shift and turning out anywhere from , to , feet of lumber a day.

In fact, it is planned to run the mill past the regular season so there will be a hangover of several million feet of lumber that will be thoroughly seasoned for the box plant to begin on next year. Over a mile and a half of the present logging railway has been constructed during the past forty days over the frozen ground and the present track will need to be moved into new timber by the middle of this summer. At this time, only three trucks of 18, feet of logs are being brought in over these tracks each trip but this will soon be doubled and a steam unloader installed at the mill that will unload one truck of logs a minute into the mill pond.

A good illustration of the up-to-theminute ability of this organization is well illustrated by the fact that they are able to start sawing in this zero weather and to successfully do so are keeping their mill pond from freezing by the judicious use of steam. A well appointed woods camp and commissary has been erected at the woods end of the railway and a new warehouse and office is now being built at the mill. The Daly Bros. This lumber hauling contract is the vital connecting link.

If you wish to view the largest lumber operations that have ever been staged in this neck of the woods, take a run up to the BilesColeman mill any time within the next thirty to sixty days, it will repay you. Continuedon on Page Page County All-Star Team Selected March 19, The selection of an Okanogan County All-Star team as selected by secret vote of coaches and officials within the county was compiled as follows: Each player receiving a choice for a position on the first team was given two votes and being named on the second team gave him one vote.

Those who named a captain for their team chose Gliden of Brewster, although not all of the coaches named a captain. In some cases a man lost a position on the first team by being named for two different places. This was true of Burnham of Oroville. The votes are as follows: Gliden — Brewster, 10 F H. Burnham 0 McCormack — B 7. Holmes — T 6. Burnham received 6 votes for center and 4 for forward so in as much as the vote was divided I took the liberty of selecting him as second choice for center.

The rise of this young man marks the fulfillment of the life work of Father E. The young generation was his hope, Paschal one of his brightest pupils. The good father felt he would be satisfied if he could live to see one of these Indian lads reach the point in life to which Paschal has now attached himself. He has now attained as he was sure such a one would be fired with ambition to buckle in and assist in the uplift work of his own people.

Friends, Indians and whites, have watched this bright young man climb and have been proud that his early training was in this community. They wish him continued success, whether or not he elects to return and become a leader of his people as Father de Rouge had planned. Dodge ship designer and builder of the Atlantic Coast died. March 30 — cars of apples shipped for the season. April 20 — Fire destroys Glenwood Mercantile Co. June 15 — L. M Klessig sold dairy and milk route to M. July 6 — Biles Coleman wins baseball series. March 1 — Orchardist A. April 5 — The Chronicle runs an advertisement celebrating the first radio transmission to England.

Continued on on Page Page 3. March 1, An open hearing will be held Monday morning at 9 a. Some of these charges are to the effect that the affairs of the Indians are not properly supervised, that their property is not protected, that they don not receive proper medical attention, and that the Indians are not making the progress that they should under Government supervision. The committee was composed of C. Blackwell and O. Woody, Okanogan and J. Biles of Omak. Much Testimony The reports of the committee without their recommendations covers 27 typewritten pages, largely composed of questions and answers taken during the hearing last Monday.

Only a small part of the testimony was transcribed as it was estimated that the full report would have covered probably 79 page. The committee recommendations are published below. Medical Attention This committee is firmly of the opinion that a hospital for the exclusive treatment of Indian patients should be established on the west side of the Colville Indian reservation, suitably equipped to give adequate service in surgical cases and care of tuberculosis patients.

In the case of children at least the disease cold often be arrested if it were possible to give proper treatment. Under the existing contract, Indians are given some medical and surgical attention, but the latter may often be denied through inability of the patients. Proper coverage of the health field can only be given through establishment of suitable hospital facilities. More and more the Indians are mingling with the whites and being admitted to the public schools and the tuberculosis menace among the tribes has become a matter of concern to all people in communities where Indians reside.

Statements that Indians seek the services of other doctors because the government appointed does not answer their calls or because they feel he is neglectful in their treatment warrants a check-up on the general treatment afforded. Rehabilitation Cattle holdings among the Indians has been greatly depleted by a long period of drought and poor market conditions. We recommend that some means be provided whereby the older Indians may be reestablished in the stock-raising business on a small scale.

There is need of more active assistance both on the part of the government and the public in. We recommend organization of a self-improvement council by the young Indians assisting members of the tribes in the conduct of their affairs. Payment of Rentals Particular efforts should be put forth to keep lessors and those Indians who have individual agreements for the sale of timber, pasturage, etc. In the minds of the Indians there is is much mystery about these affairs and a great deal of suspicion. The Indian. Conditions Less Favorable On the Colville reservation, Indians were better off 20 years ago than they are today.

This statement is based on our own observations as well as testimony by Indians.

This condition, however, is in line with the experience of white dry land farmers in the same district and is largely attributable to climatic conditions. This particular member of the local apricot family came from the Bartin Robinson orchard just north of town and measured nine inches one way and eight and the three-quarters the other.

Best of all, it had a numerous flock of brothers and sisters who crowded it closely for Jumbo honors and the quality was A1. Hatcher orchard just north of town and only weighed twenty-five and a half ounces and looked like a young pumpkin size. Could the aforementioned apricot, and this pear, have been pickled in one huge glass jar, they would have graced any museum with honor and small chance of being eaten. This break was caused by falling rocks that had been loosened by the spring thaw on the bluff above the track.

The accident proved fatal to Engineer Duffy, of Oroville. When he saw the derailment was unavoidable, the engineer jumped to save himself and was crushed on the rocks. A speeder was secured and the injured man rushed to the Pateros hospital, but life had left the body before medical aid could be reached.

Dickson and a Mrs. Guile and daughter and Mrs. Scott and children were the only local passengers aboard the train and while the passengers were all badly shaken, the pleasing report comes through theat none of them needed medical attention. The train left the track, most fortunately, on the bank side, so none of the cars were turned over but had it gone off on the river there would have been a terrible loss of life and property.

For just a month ago, lightning struck a fence not a hundred feet from where Paxton was standing in his field. The lightning traveled along the barbed wire fence and paralyzed a pig nearby. Paxton came to town afterwards and told of the incident. And then while the farmer was cutting grain in his field, four miles from Meyers Falls last Tuesday lightning struck again and killed Paxton.

The bolt traveled through his body, through the binder, through the tongue of the machine and laid out the four horses in a row, one on top of the other — all dead. This was the first time in more the 25 years that anyone had been killed in Stevens county by lightning, old residents said. Neither of these buildings were occupied and the funrishings had been removed from the hotel building some months ago by the parties who had the place leased.

No one knows how the fire started and the practically no fire protection, it is fortunate that more of the business section wsa not caught by the flames. Hendrick, the lad would undoubtedly have lost his life. In company with several of his little playmates, Del was playing along the river bank above the bridge. Hendrick was busy at the plant and had heard the lads calling and playing about and was not paying any attention to their shouting until he rather subconsciously noted a tone of fear in their shoutings. Going to the river bank to make sure all was right, the lads shouted to him that one of their number was in the river.

Rushing to the bank, Mr. Diving under the ice, the lad was quickly brought to the surface but it was a strenuous twenty minutes work to bring back signs of life in the sturdy little body. Warm blankets, coupled with immediate medical attention and loving home care soon put the lad back in the running, for what is hoped will be a long and useful life. October 14, Closing of pool rooms at midnight, according to city ordinance, was demanded by the Omak Commercial Club at its Monday meeting, the resolution further requesting that the city marshal and county sheriff give loafers the choice of going to work or leaving town.

The resolution passed unanimously by the Commercial club follows: Whereas, the laws and ordinance of the Town of Omak have not been enforced during the harvest season, and the pool rooms have been permitted to remain open at all hours of the night and have remained open all night. Be if further resolved, that the town marshal and sheriff make every effort to rid the town of idlers, and that such be given the choice of going to work at. Be it further resolved, that a copy of this resolution be furnished the mayor, every member of the council, city marshal and city attorney.

Champion, President J. Courtright, Secretary. Impediment to Harvest The pool room question arose during a discussion of labor shortage for harvest operations, and the fact that pool rooms were remaining open all night contrary to law was declared to be a definite hindrance to harvest work. McDermott introduced the subject declaring that not only was there a group of loafers playing a crooked game of cards and filching money earned by regular laborers, but also the very fact that workers were spending their nights in a pool room rendered them unfit for work the next day. A second thought which developed in the discussion was the removal of those whose purpose was not the seeking of work.

Caldwell related a conversation he had heard. Monday between a rancher and a pool room loafer, the latter grilling the rancher upon wages, accommodations, size of apples, height of trees and so on. The job was finally refused and the rancher returned home without help. Another angle of the question was brought out in the assertion that some of those who were hanging around pool rooms were actually ranchers who had better be home resting for harvest work. McDermott, who has taken an interest in the providing of labor declared that there were possible accommodations for men in the community, invalidating the contention that there is need of pool rooms in lieu of a lodging house.

After a heated discussion of the matter, it being evident that opinions was solidly for closing pool rooms according to law, at midnight, the resolution was put by President E. Champion and passed without a dissenting vote. The cat was shot over on Beaver Creek, a few miles northwest of Olema, beyond where the first party of hunters in the field Shuttleworth, Haley and Hildebrand lost the trail.

This party of hunters had gone north and were working back toward where Vanderpool shot the animal on Wednesday. The cougar is not such a large cat but is an old female whose teeth and claws show her age and whose tawny body proves she has been unsuccessful in obtaining all the wild food she needed. In phoning in this news, deputy sheriff McCauley stated he felt sure the guilty animal had been killed but the hunters reported signs of other cougars in the same locality so the enlarged campaign by the state hunters will be highly pleasing to everyone.

Sufficient water is available to operate the plant at full capacity up to the 20th of August each year. In fact, this project is safe right now for the season with what water is now in the reservoirs at Conconully and what can be taken from the local wells and lakes were there no snow in the mountains at all, which is far from being the case. Project manager Casteel gave these absolute figures to the Chronicle Wednesday morning: Storage in old reservoir, can be taken out by gravity, 2, acre feet; new Salmon Lake reservoir, 3, acre feet, can be pumped.

This makes a total of 5, acre feet now actually in storage. In fact, Mr. Casteel states that past experience shows that much more than 3, feet can be taken from Salmon Lake, but he has kept his figures conservative. These figures take no account of what can be pumped from Duck Lake, the regular supply from the private wells or the extra 3, acre feet that is figured can be taken from private wells over and above what is actually needed by the lands upon which the wells are located.

At least, if not now, it soon will be here. An authorized Klan orator, of Seattle, delivered an eloquent address to a large audience of invited Omakers at the Omak Auditorium last week, the object of this meeting being the enlistment of new members. While the speaker gave few of the inner workings of his order, he did, in most respects give a highly moral and entertaining lecture that was designed to give his audience the impression that the Klan was among the truly better class societies of our nation and that their aims and objects were all of the highest moral, religious and patriotic character.

As above stated, this publication feels that a mighty good impression was left with this local audience. The editor of this sheet innocently pulled this stunt at the Ku Klux Klan meeting last week Wednesday evening. Presuming upon the ordinary license of newspaper reporters, and not being aware that the particular Klan meeting was a invited party, we butted in, obtained a seat, and heard most of a very interesting lecture by the Klan organizer.

Take it from us, folks, the best of the Omak citizenship was represented at this meeting and we know not whom they seek in other parts but they sure went after the best we have at every turn. The Chronicle has never feared the Klan, nor has it in any way attempted to defile it. Our attendance at the meeting last week left the impression that no upright citizen need ever have any fear of it, at least so far as the Omak branch is concerned.

We do believe, however, that the Klan is treading upon treacherous sands when it antagonizes any religious society, either the heads thereof or the membership at large. To us, it is a proven fact that the upholding of the fundamentals or our government, as constituted, will prevent the domination of any sect, society or creed from gaining control of the reins of temporal government and mixing of church and state.

We are a forward-looking and working nation, one that has never backed up to take on the discarded robes of the by-gone dark ages, and we cannot believe that future generations will ever do so. We know they will not, provided we of this generation give them the broad viewpoint of human freedom we all love so much.

Therefore I am requesting that since I am the said accused commissioner I must strongly urge that your president call a meeting at an early date and that the club select at that meeting one citizen to serve as a member of an investigating committee. I am requesting that the committee proceed immediately to investigate the official acts and expenditures of your commissioner during the two years I have held that office; to make the investigation thorough; to report their findings; and if the use of the office for personal benefit at the expense of the county be found to have taken place, then the report must so show.

In due fairness to all parties, including the public, I request that the committee be instructed also to investigate the conduct of the office of prosecuting attorney of the county during the same two years.
