Grant 'Hinkle has sent to each high school several copies of the state constitu- tion and of the election laws. These streams have fallen so low, because of a long continued dry spell, that there is not enough water left for the fish to swim in. Old settlers re- port to the State Fisheries Board that some rivers are lower than they have been for 52 years It is a rather serious matter when fih cannot find' water enough in the West Side rivers. All along the banks of the rivers in the mountains are found dead salmon which failed to reach the pawLing grounds they will be received after that date though some extra time may be allowed for the fmther investigation of claims airead  on file. The legislature fixed the closing date and Mr. Clausen does not bel.ievc plans will be changed at the special session. If the veterans' oro'anizations are interested in check- ing up the world war survivors who have not been paid their adjusted comp2nsoticn they have five months in which to act. Mr. Clausen still believes the voters of the state in- tended to pay ad'justed compensation to all those who enlisted from this state for war service m:d if another effort is made to get the bonus for the so-called "professional soldiers" who were barred by the Maxmi!lion decision he will give the legislature the necessary information. About half the "professionals" were paid before the decision was rendered.

In addition the contractors have been saved the expense of clos- ing and then reopening their camps. As spirited bidding cut construction costs to the bone this year the con- tractors will find the saving in some instances may be their margin cf ,vrofit. There has been a slight sav- ing in state engineering costs as well but this is hard to estimate accurate- ly. Washington's engineering costs, averaging a shade under 6.9 per cent are among the lowest in the country. Not only has there been an increase in the number of auto dealers this year, but License Director C. R. May- bury's record shows that the number of licenses issued to dealers, repre- senting cars used by salesmen, has in- creased more than 10 per cent. There were 841 auto dealers licensed last year and they took out 2997 sets of extra plates at $10 per set. This have appealed to Secretary of State year the 903 dealers asked' for 3385 J. Gran Hinkle for permission to sell l extra sets of plates, a gain of 388 stock in Everglade view lots or sand lsets. Exm'essed in cash, the auto beach farms went to the wrong man dealers cf 1921 paid $10383 in li- to get permission to float their rand leon.sos. Thus far in 1925 they have corporations. Secretary Hinkle has [ paid $76,874.80. replied to several letters of inquiry t and his attitude toward each has been Comparison of the rate base for the the same. He declares he has no Great Northern which the state de- facilities for determining the value ipartment of uublic works is fighting of Florida lands they claim to own for before the interstate commerce commission and the actual value of the road as fixed by the state tax commission shows the public works department does not wish the railroad to earn interest on more than $58,- 052,000 while the tax commission ruled the property was worth $71,- 402,000. The interstate commercb ommission's tentative valuation was $74,110,000. The public works de- partment has two months work ahead to finish valuing the O. W. R. & N., !and has not touched the Northern Pacific. The tax commission's fig- ures for these roads are $50,383,000 and $126,460,000.

Hence he refuses to list these pro- motion schemes under the Blue Sky Law. Mr. Hinkle believes the bubble will burst soon and then attention of investors will be turned toward the northwest He still receives scores of letters from inquirers though the appropriation for his Immigration Bureau--which the Canstitution says shall be maintained in his depart- ment has not been renewed by the last two legislatures. State funds held' in public deposi- tories have earned $215,001 in inter- est during the first three quarters of the present ear, the report of State Treasurer W:. G. Potts shows. Last year over $311,000 in interest was collected. The interest is credited to the various funds which has been de- posited in banks. However, the ag- gregate amount is equal to the total appropriations made for five elective officials. -- i There are no "cats and flogs" in the escheated estates that are turned over to the state for the benefit of the school fund, G. W. H. Davis, Sup- ervisor of the Inheritance Tax Div- ision, has found. "Cats and dogs"-- wildcat stocks--are a luxury of the rich and most of the escheated estates are small. Mr. Davis is not sure, from his investigations, that the man without heirs or other earthly respon- sibilities is proof against the wiles of the wildcat stock peddler. It may be that they, too, fall for the get- rich-quick schemes, but if so t-hey  almost always throw away the worth- I visitor on Sunday last. Atty.

Swan, of Monroe, and their mutual friend, Mr. Vanderhyde, of Snohomish, were for a few days over in the Kittitas val- ley, attempting to knock down a few chinks. The shooting, we understand, is not very good over in that section of the eastern side. The following sharpshooters left Monroe Saturday evening last for the Kittitas valley, where they reveled for a day or two among the pheasant family: Dr. Zaremba, Bill Broughton, Lloyd Malone, Cecil Bennett, Julian Young, M. C. Reardon and a Mr. Me- Laughlin, of Snohomish. The bag- ging, however, was not as. good as on former visits to these chink fields. New Low Prices on m Rubber Footwear GET OUR PRICES BEFORE YOU BUY.
