EVERY COMFORT AT REASONABLE RATES EUROPEAN PLAN $1.00 PER DAY UP J. H. Davis. Propri.tor Invite Republican Convenlion to Monroe Every Convenience Offered Here for County Convention Monroe may get to entertain the re- publican county convention this year and all citizens unite in a cordial invi- tation to the members of the party in the county to agree upon the selection of Monroe as the logical place for hold- ing the convention. Train facilities of the very best on the Great Northern and Milwaukee, giving twenty trains or more a day that will be in operation by the time the convention is held insure the quickest and easiest service in the accomodatiGn of passengers and will make it easy fcr delegates to reach here from every por- tion of the county. In addition the roads are good and automobile travel fast and pleasant. Everett and Snohomish have had the conventions in the past, usually, and there would seem to be little reason why the convention should not be held in Monroe this year. It would be a friendly exhibition of courtesy on the part of Everett and Snohomish people to agree and such action would be ve y greatly appreciated by the people of Monroe. It is hinted that Everett members of the party will not be averse to having the convention held somewhere else for the reason that it would probably help to harmonize the party interests better and having the convention in a smaller community will held to hold the dele- gates closer together and make possible a more united, friendly and harmonious convention. Monroe has grown to a position of importance in the county and a visit here on the part of several hundred del egates will furnish interest for all a d a pleasant outing and entertainment i that every one will enjoy. There wil I be no trouble about entertaining the i convention. Monroe republicans will I take care of furnishing a hall large d enough to accommodate the convention easily and the community has taken care several times in the past of feed- ing larger crowds than will be present. The convention should meet towards the end of this month or early in May and the county committee should take action in the near future and decide upon the invitation to come here. Precinct Committman E. T. Bascom and other leading republicans will present the in- vitation in due form and the committee may feel assured that in deciding to ac- cept they will be meeting the wishes of a very large portion of the voters oi' the county embraced in the district in- cluded in this section.

They Imps issued a revolutionary poster, of wai('h copies are for sale in moat or the Chinese shops. The proceeds are devoted to the financing of the rebellion. The portrait is that of Li Yuen Hung the chief military commander of the insurgents. The flags at either side are the banners of the provisional government after the design whl(.h has been adoi)ted by the Young China association, many of whose members in America wish to see a rel)ubllc established in China. The pictures below the portrait (which, of course, are not a part of the poster) are those ot tie cl!efs of naval and military affairs at Peking. The names from left to right are: Ylng Chang, president of the war ministry, late commander In chief; Tsai Pu. se:ond son of Prince ChiRR; Prince Tsai Hsuen, head of naval affairs; Prince Tsal Jln, Prince Tsal Tap, late military councilor (the last three uncles of the emperor); Duke Ling, Prince Pu and Tam Heap HERR, subpresident of the navy. he Mayor Balks [,aster Services at at Naming Ih,gineer lhe Reformalory Leaves it to Improvement Committee I Second Death Occures Amonl the In- to Choose Official mates at the Institution Mayor Vanasdlen announced at the In c " . ....... : ........ a council meeting Wednesday evening 'Passiogm. mn wxt] En:t2:da.w.ere that he did not propose to make the up- properl , _ - nrmatory. pointment of town engineer for the fiR- Beginning with Palm Sunday, the story cal year but would leave the matter of the selection of such an official', to the improvement committee. The mayor took the view that the present law was improper in so far as it gave the mayor the power to make such an appoint- ment without the sanction of the coun- cil but that after the appointment was made, the official was entirely under the control of the council This being the casG, and as the matter of paving :will probably come to a head here this summer, the mayor desires that the improvement committee, the members of which will be in direct supervision of the work, should select an engineer who will be entirely satisfactory to them and work in harmony with them. The west side of Ma]ison street is to be improved with a cement walk, a resolution of intent being passed. The report of the town treasurer of the Savior's life was set forth in three addresses by the chaplain.

Easter was observed with a special sermon, illustrated with slecial views on the resurrection of Christ. Special music by the quartet, rendering the "Radiant Morn" and the chorus of twenty voices, "The Holy City," while the song was illustrated by stereopticon views. Kipling's Recessional was recited by Inmate--with Prof. Ball assisting at the organ; to whom much credit is also due for the training of the quartet and chorus. The usual efficient music by the orchestra, Mr. Boar director added to the splendid service. Super- intendent C. B. Roe provided the usual Easter treat for the inmates.

Busy al Arlington Believed to Be Running Milwaukee Line to Bellingham News comes from Arlington this week that a gang of surveyors is at work in that vicinity that are generally believed to be working in the interests of the Milwaukee. They are running lines paralleling the N. P., and Arlington people have strong reason to believe that the Milwaukee extension north to Bellinghar, to connect with the Bell- ingham Bay & British Columbia rail- road recently purchased by the Mil- waukee, will be under construction in the near future. The Monitor-Transcript takes a most fatherly interest in all news pertaining to the building of the Milwaukee branch north. "It first outlined the general plans of the company in making the exten- sion directly north from Monroe and is still of the belief that the road will be bait by that route in spite of continued runors that the extention will go north from Everett or Snohomish. The Woods Creek route offers every advantage for the building of a new line except that some severe grades will interfere, but it is not believed that the grades will prevent the build- ing of the line by that route. Wlerever the Milwaukee has come in the Coast section it has endeavored to open up new territory and by going directly north from Monroe, it would open up an entirely new section of tim- ber and agricultural country that would in time produce enormous freight revenues with development. In going north, following the route of the G. N. and N. P. close to the coast, the Mil- waukee would simply be endeavoring to take away some of the business of its competitors, but building the north branch in as close to the foothills as possible, an entirely v:rgin territory "s opened up that the road would contro . At the same time the route would be the shortest to Bellingham and Van- CaRver and give the quickest service as a feeder to the main transcontinental line.

The shows will be known as "See America First" Expositions and will aim not only to attract tourists and in- duce them to travel thraugh the sew n northwest states, but by displays of products the expositions will also claim the attention of the homeseekers and show them the opportunities and in- ducements offered on western lands.
