Torts was kill- ed on the G. N. track within a mile of town late Monday even- ink or early Tuesday morning. His body was found by residents in the vicinity the next morning and Undertaker Bartols sum- moned to take charge of his re- mains. His head was badly crushed and both arms broken but no evidence was secured as to how the accident was brought about. He was identified by a ticket h'om a Seattle bureau giv- ing him employment at Scenm and was evidently on his wag to thapoint. He had friends at North Bend who were communi- cated with and who will deter- mine the disposition of the ra- m ai n s. Reformatory Idea Strongly Favored "All of the delegates fro,i foreign countries who were pre- sent at the meeting agreed after two days' discussion that the American plan of indetermina,e sentences nd parole is the very best method o  handling younger criminals and all prepared to re- turn to their homes and urge the adoption of similar plans," aid Supt. C. B. Roe, of the reforma- tory who is back home from the meeting of the International Pri,on association in Washing. ton. "The delegates to the recep- tion were accorded a reception by the president, a dinner by the goverment and a government vessel took us all on a trip down he Potomac to Mt. Vernon to view the home of (,eorge" Wash- ingten. The reception was like a roll call of nations, so many d fferent peoples were present- ed to the president. In fact practically every civilized nation on the globe was represented by delegates and the interchange of thought will bring about wonder. ful results in the methods of handhng prisoners. The adop lion of the American plan wasa great compliment to this country s heretofore it has been regard d as unfeamble."

Overhead Crossings for Loff, in00, Roads The Great Northern has let. contracts to Caughren, Winters, Stanch & Co. for the building of overhead crossings for the High Rock and Porks logging roads in he valley. This plan was considered at the very first when th surveys were first made but it was decided that grade cros- sings would be all right and the new railroad was built with grade crossings for the two log- ging roads. These crossings have been found dangerous and inadequate for the buMness and the railroad company has now decided that it will be better to fix them at once and let the !og- ging roads go overhead. The crossings will require long tres- tles and will keep the contractors here for a considerable time ye'. This change in the plans and the further evidence of the man- ner in which the Skykomish bridge as constructed and the high quality of the construction work all along the line, more and more bear out the belief that sooner or later the line will be extended south from Tolt and main line trains and traffic from Portland and San Francmco pass down the valley on its way east via Monroe. It is stated on pretty good authority that sur- veys have been make sguth from Tolt and that it is the intention of the railroad company to con- tinue in hat direction. The traffic on the coast line is really heavier than the company can handle and is sadly interfered with at all times in the winter season by slides Extensive changes have to be made to put the road on a proper competitive basis with the other continental roads that are reaching the coast and the plan for an extension south is generally regarded as one of the most feasible, County Records.

Clark, under direction of the council, iu regard to finding out about a crossing at Wood street, the r:.:ilway commission answers that it had nothing to ay in re- gard to the rights of the town m establishing a crosing--that it is only called upon to decide whether or not a grade crossing would be permitted after the rights of the town are establish- ed, The answer received indicates that the commission is fully awaxe of all tim premises in the case--that the town has streets on both sides of he crossing leading to it--and the course of action suggested i to commence condemnation proceed inks, if a crossing is desired, af- ter proper resolutions in regard to the subject are adopted by the council. Action in regard to the cros- sing can be expected at an early council meeting as the members of the council are determined to protect the town's rights in eve- ry way possible. CHERRY VALLEY A splendid gravel pit has been found )ear town and Mr. Leake ha sewral teams busy hauling gravel for the road near Duvall. There will be dance in the hall on the evening of the 22nd.

Several neat cottages are go- # Ing up near the railroad They are for the section foremn and section men. Another Correspolldent Miss Mamie Knutson, of Sul- tan, is visiting at Mr. Allen's ttris week. Great interest has been taken in tim new town of Duvall. many have journeyed from Kirkand and Seattle to see the out-look; some on business and some for pleasure. A party given the young peo- ple by Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield, on Saturday night was largely attended and unenjoyable even- ing spent playing games and singing. A dainty luacn ws served. Mr. and Mrs. Getty returned Monda),, after attending the Po- mona Grange, in Seattle. " Robert Main was also present. Mr. and Mrs. Win. Trulson are moving away this week to where Mr. Trulsoa is working near Olvmphia, Miss Nellie Finley has been visiting in Kent the past week with Miss Gertrude Morkin. Rev.

Mr. Bird, Mr. Aimer and daughter, Mable and Miss Viola Finley were Tolt callers on Sun- day. Mr AI. PiCkerir, g has let the contract for: the erection of a store building on his place at Novelty. The present store is to retire soon. Cong, Humphrey to ' SpeakHere Monday Congressman Humphrey will speak at the opera house in Mon- roe on Monday evening, October 24, and local people will be giv- en an opportunity to hear his side of the controversy with Jud- ge Black. The congressional campaign is becoming quite in- teresting on accoun of the per- sonalities being indulged in be- tween Mr. Humphrey and his ju- dicial opponent and the meeting here next week will likely be well attended. Judge Black is well known and well liked m Snohomish county and lm is bound to get a good vote, not only from Democrats, but from among the insurgent element of the Republican party who are not standing by Judge Poindextor in the stand he has taken in support of the present congressmo, n. However, the nor- mal vote of Snohomish count), is strongly Republican and there is little question but that Mr. Hum- phrey will carry 'he count), and be re-elect d to succeed himself. Judge Black has taken the popu- lar and insurgent vmw of neaxly eve'ry prominent question--he has hogged the whole works-- and is unquestionably gaining votes on that score, but in doing so, is layinghim elf oln lethe char e of possibly injuring the lumber iniluslry. Telephone Girls Go . Out on a Slnke Friday evening about six o'chtck Miss Sarah Mercer. It) cal manager, and the other three operators e,npl,)yed iu the Pact- lic Teleph, me & Teetraph corn pany's Monroe office went out,,l, a strie and tied the sarvic ut tor a fe:v hours until other oper- ators could be rushed to town and a new force put to wort,. The young ladies claim that the) asked and were refused an ad- vance in wages and that that was the reason for the walkout but the view is taken about town that the strike is the result el the investigations being made ii town as to the cause of the con inued poor service. Friday evening,, men officials of the company managed th+ switchboard and offered apology for the sercme and the next day Miss Enfield, of Snohomish, ar rived to take charge as manager. with tim assistance of Miss Hopper. of Everett, and Mis- Hosch, of Monroe. Fo" the p,'e sent, the oflic is get,ink along with the services of three oper,, tors. the young ladies dividing up the time at night. They axe giving good service. The condition of affairs is most unfortuna,.e for all concertmd. Miss Mercer. the farina/" mana- ger. is h,ghly regarded in t,,e community and ha, the goodwill of the business men generally for her efforts to give good phone service and the oher young ladies are all well known ann liked, but the conditions were unfortunate and the efforts to better the serv ce on the part of the company's officials, aspen- tally aft0r a complaint was filled by the business men, resulted in iovesti,-,aMons that were un doubtedly most unp'easant to the young ladies.

Show Appreciation for Old Home Paper Subscribers of the Monitor Traascript have daring the past ten days aided this paper in es- tablishing what in probably a world's record in subscription collections on a country news- paper. It is a well known fact that the subscription list of the Monitor-Transcript is a paid up list. Only sut)scribers who want the paper and are willing to pay for it get it. There is no free list beyond one paper sent to busi- ness houses which advertise ex- teniveyduring the year. Tile paper is sold on its merits as a newspaper and ils circulation is stable from year to year. In most of the homes of the older residents it has been a weekly companion for periods extending back ten and eleven yeaxs At no time are twenty five per cent of the subscribers iu arrears on their subscription. SLate- merits are sent out every few months and all that, is usually necessary to secure t)avment for !the paper for the year in ad- vance is to mil the notice. On the lOth da.y of this ulontn 206 notices were m:de out. niue !of which were for su.'scripJ,m for two ye rs--tlle past year' and i ayear In advance. Tte ba.l,tnce i were all for the current veax, imotof them running froth' Ibis summer or fall to next, sn,nmr and fall. To dtt,e a total ,, 83 i persons in all have ,t,.ve,..d !these up, ices by mil or,n i,er ison and paid their snbs(.ri,,i,m ,a'counls--just forty per ce,,I, of t ta ;eta/ nu,nber who were two idnd.

It is a mark of appteciation for the paper that its editor takes very deeply to 'heart and his reelers can feel :asured tat he w}l[ never fail , try and give them their money's worth. It might not be out of order to suggest t: the ol,her sixly per cent. of the persons i,otiu.d that their payments during the next ten days or so would break an- other tec .ord. First Circus Here Pleases Big Crowd ThoA! G. Brnescircus whict showed here last Friday was the first real circus thatever came to Monroe and the attendance se- cured at both performances iil serve to bring other similar at- tra,tions here in the future. Miss Monroe proved herself a circus town -nd turned out generous crowds that packed the tent at both performances. The show p,x)ved good--better than expected--and was hea"tily enjoyed by everyone. The per- forming animals were ver), well trained and very clever, going through stunts that were good enough to be shown wih ny,,f bigger shows. Some of the acts were hair.raising.
