Mr'. Poindexter is by by non]eans a polished orator, but he uses good straight Eng presents his arguments not unnecessarily plausible most e:nphatically. He dwelt at con. sidembl [ength on thedramatie incidents of the last session, tell- ing how Speaker Cannon was deposed and retailing]he same facts iu connection with the matter and the methods employ- ed in l)assino the tariff bill as have been told and re-told in the magzines and newspaper press of tile past months. Introduced by E. Hazel]on in part Mr. Poindexter said: 'There is a crisis in the devel opementof parties in tins state.

"As to my political affiliation, I will say that I voted the Repub- lican ticket in this stale when people would nearly sm their I dogs on Republicans. "The great issue of the day is] [whether tim corporations shall I control the public functions and I agencies for private purposes or I the people for the publm good.

Four different big pieces of improvement work are under' way--the G. N. changes, the Milwaukee building, the water company reservoir and the build ing of the new Woods creek bridge. Add to these the other improvement work that is being done all over town in different sections--the sewer work, the big sidewalk COhtracts, streeL grading, water and electric corn- [)any improverlents, telephone and the building of the union high school--and it is a safe guess to make that no other town in tile state of twice the number of inhabitants is so busy.

The G. N. work is being push ed rapidly now so that the change to the new depot Can be made soon. Tim 'approach to the Cherry Valley bridge is being moved to th0 west side of tile right of-way so as to brim: the track on an easy curve to]hi south side of the depot. The first tract on the north fde--the present main rack which will be the passing track--is being moved north and the track be vend will t:e the main track. The new big tank has been corn pleted at an elevatmn that giv big pressure at two stand arms that ,re being put in place on the tract 300 feet each side of the tank. Republican State Convention at Tacoma The Republican state convon tree, held in the Armory at Taco ma Wednesday, was called to order by Senator S. H Piles a 10 a. m. Senator Wesley L Jones wa later made permanent chair- man. Both of these gentlemen. in the course of their speeches. made ringing denouncements of the insurgent movement, every reference thereto being received with uproarious applause on the part of tile delegates. It" was i early demonstrated that insur- gency would not have a look-in at the convention Resolutions adopted heartily endorse President Taft and his administration; favor the election of a United Sr:tes senator from' the west side, which literally amounts to saying that any candi date except Poindex;,er would be acceptable to the conventi,m. No reference ]s made in the platform, however, to either woman suf- frage or the liquor question. There was considerable discus- sion over the propositioris o eliminate the second choice pro- vision in nominations, which was carried, and to restore the nomi Oem0crals Mixi,0000, in nation of supreme court judges to tim primaries, which was lost..
