Case of Tafticitis
Our old friend. Ceo. E Hcnschot
er. Sehiil. Nebr.. from whom we pur
chased tlie Northwestern some eight
yean ago. writes us interestingly along
Taft persuasion lines, as follows:
n hill, N'-b.. Mar. 12.-Dear Editor
Nortliwestern: Never before, that I
can remember, have 1 been more inter
ested in the presidential situation
than now and I appeal to all my old
republican friend- in Sherman county
to stand faithfully by President Taft
at tlie coming primaries He should
be renominated, as he has made a
good and faithful president. His po
sition lias been a most trying one,
and lie lias braved it all with courage
and fidelity
Colonel noose*eit lias made a great
and unpardonable mistake in oppos
ing him at this time and 1 believe
that lie will loose strength before tlie
primaries in April, while President
Taft will gain every day. I liaveeon
• dence in there being enough think
ing people in Nebarska to bring about
Uiis result.
Mr. Roosevelt is responsible for tlie
portion Mr Taft now occupies, and
it is noticeable that he has refrained
all through the president's adminis- ‘
'ration from giving him a word of
praise or assistance during his whole
term of office, and any sound think
ing man can see plainly now the mo
tive that marked hi- silence in this
Koosetell has had Ills day. but liad
he remained silent a little longer he
might liave risen again with success,
but at this time. Vo! He helped to
buiid Taft up and with his magic
power of peruasion induced the people
to support him. Vow. in like man
ner. he seeks to tear him down, not
by making direct accusation, but by
placing himself in the way, seemingly
thinking his is the only light that
si tine* to iilottmie tnW'paUiway <
To Ute republican boys of Sherman
county. I again say. stand by Presi
dent Taft. Respectively.

Friend Fulliton
In Oklahoma
Following is a letter from our good
friend Willis Fulliton. who, with his
good wife, is wintering at Blackwell,
Okia. and though crowded out of
past issues because of condition of news
columns, is still newsy and worthy of
Blackwell. <»kla.. Feb. 17.-I*ear
Ldiu>r Mrs. Fulliton and myself ar
rived here safe and sound the next
day after leaving home and had a
pleasant trip. Found all doing well
and should have written sooner, but
waited to see l»ow j likid the country
before doing so. I like the country
and find it verv fine and prosperous.
Tlie country is nice and level, spil of
dark loam, with the farmers prosper
ous and contented. Blackwell is a
very pretty place, well built, with
the bnsiness part mostly brick. There
are several churches, fine school house
three banks, four elevators, large mill
water works, electric lights, fire de
partment. etc. The residence part
is very nice, bouses well built, streets
nice and well shaded, and all in ail
Blackwell a very desirable place.
Price of land is from $25 to $100 per
acre and some cannot be bought at
that. Water Is good, while they have
natural gas. used by everybody in
town and most of the farmers, and
wiil be used by all as soon as it can
be piped through the country. The
weather lias been very pleasant since
we liave been here, some showers, at
freezing point most of the nights,
with the days warm and spring like.
;Tiie farmers are getting ready to sow
oats, and some have made garden.
Tl>e peach and cherry buds are begin
tng to start, but every thing is a little
backward, as the winter lias been a
extremely cold for this part of the
country. About lo below. I think,
lias been the coldest. The climate
agrees with me. my bronchitis is bet
ter. Tliere are many old army com
rades here, so I have plenty of com
pany to loaf with, it was quite dry
here last year, but there seems to be
plenty of feed and thestock looks well,
white prices are better than with us.
The wheat crop was pretty short last
year, but wlut 1 saw here looks fine.
Alfalfa is a fine crop while cartir corn
does well. Alfalfa is worth$12 to $15
per ton. liay $*. potatoes $1.50 per
busiiel. I think by what I have seen
so far tills wiil prove to be a line al
falfa country, and they liave the in
side track on us as they do not have
to feed so long, cutting their a Half a
four times, while we get only three
I do not know how long we will
stay, bat do not want to go home till
the weaUier gets warm at home, and
as I have my best girl with me tc
keep me straight. I can get along at
right. Willis Fulliton
Ira E. Williams in
Hood River, Oregon
Hood River, Oregon, March 14.—
Dear Mr. Burleigh: Have not seen a
copy ef the Northwestern since I left
jour city, Feb. 24, as conductoi
of a car load of emigrant move
ables bound for Hood River, and
1 trust this will remind you of my new
address and that your good paper will
proceed to come this way.
Was little more than seven days en
route without particular incident
and the journey was entirely novel to
me with rather more of pleasure than
1 anticipated, although 1 would not
care to take another one just like it
having gained the experienc in this
one trip that I would not be without
the reflection for considerable.
The horse 1 bought of JohnTromp
ke came through in good shape
and you may tell JohD,v if you think
of it. that I like him very much, and
that lie drives single line an old hand
at the business. Tell Milo Gilbert
that the Poland China sorts that I
bought from him availed of
their sleeping car accomodations
pretty much all the way and did a
better job of snoring most of the time
than 1 can do. One of the sows far
rowed yesterday with nine tine pigs
and if Milo knew this he might want
to raise the price since they came
fully six weeks sooner than he antici
Mr. E G. Taylor sold me about 100
bushels of good Nebraska corn and
oats that 1 was fortunate to bring
with me as I tind that corn is worth
$47 per ton and oats very nearly the
same out here. The only thiDg 1 got
stuck on in shipping out here was hay
and perhaps household goods. Hay
is generally cheaper, especially alfalfa
ajid I tind furniture is cheaper than
I supposed it was.
The only extremely high priced
commodity that I have noticed thus
far is the famous Hood River apple.
The poorest quality is bringing our
orchardists $1.50 per bushel box and
the best grades have all been export
ed to France, Germany and England,
netting from $2.50 to $4 per bushel
box. While the crop of 1911 was a
little under the average, these fat
prices make good bank accounts for
our orchardists.
My wife, daughter Emma and the
two boys reached here in good con
dition last Friday noon and we have
made a good start at getting estab
lished in our new home just three
miles southwest of Hood River on 7
1-2 acres of bearing "orchard land.
Our house is fully equipped with
electric lights, spring water supplied
by hydraulic ram over the house, in
addition to irrigation pipe line from
the gravity system. There is a neigh
bor on every 10 or 15 acres and the
valley extending about 5 miles by 25
miles looks more like the suburbs of
a large city.
Every day since March 2, when I ar
rived has been balmy and very much
like Nebraska May weather except
we have almost no wind. With kind
regards to all old friends, 1 am
Yours sincerely
Ika E. Williams.
Tom Burton At
San Antonio, Texas
Our:old friend, Tom Burton, has
at last stopped his roaming longenough
to write the following* letter from
San Antonio. Texas. March 11, 1912
—Ed. Northwestern: I will write you
a few lines from this wonderful city
located among the cactus and mes
quite. First, I think it would not
be much of a city, if it were not for
the northern and eastern tourists
spending so mucii money here. It is
the muddiest city I ever saw, except
Houston, when |t rains and dustiest
when it don't. There are not many
i paved streets and they are so narrow
and crooked in the main business part
and some of the sidewalks are* so
narrow that people have to walk
single tile. It is very interesting to
wander through the old part of the
city. There are a great many of the
old one-story adobe buildings which
were here at the time of the Tenax
revolution. There are hundreds of
tourists who visit the old alamo every
day. I have stood on the spot where
Crocket and Bowie and the rest ol
that noble band of 185 fought «,00C
Mexicans for ten days, killing 2,00C
Mexicans before the last Texan waj
killed. Then there are the old mis
sions built nearly200 years ago- Thej
are nearly In ruins now, although
some of the rooms are well preserved
A party of us visited the missions
i and went through two of them, ever
I to climbing the winding stairs inU
■ the belfry. The stairs are made o>
cedar logs with notches cut in then
for steps. We retuned to town througl
the old mission farms where the old
est, irrigation ditch in the Unite*
•States is located. Another day wi
visited Fort Sam Houston. • Unci
Skm does surely fix things nice fo
> his soldiers. The soldiere’ city is th
nicest part of San Anto tio. W
cli in beu to the top of the 80-foot
tower and had a tine view of the city
and surrounding country. From the
fort we went to Breckinridge Park,
consisting of about 300 acres on the
San Antonio river, where there are
buffalo, elk. deer, peacocks ane wild
turkeys. There are some beautiful
residences in the new additions. I
haven't space to tell you of half the
tine public buildings, parks and pla
zes. but I must mention the Ruck
horn saloon, wheretherearehundreds
of horns and mounted heads of an
imals of all kinds. 1 understand the
proprietor has been offered *75,000 for
the collection. 1 liaven’t seen much
of the fine weather wa read about.
There has been a great deal of rain
and cloudy weather,, with lots of cold
and freezing weather. We notice
some cotton planted. Hoping all my
Sherman county friAnds are well and
happy, I will close. \ Yours truly,
Tnos. Burtcn.
Charley Minshull in
Ewan, Washington
Ewan. Washington. March 12, 1912.
— Dear Mr. Burleigh: I shall have to
impose upon your good nature to the
extent cf asking you to change the
address of my copy of the •‘Northwes
tern” to Ewan. Whitman county.
Washington. Kindly include the
county in the address, inasmucli as
at present there is some confusion in
the similarity of postottice names of
the state, and mail sometimes goes
Ewan is a new town on the Pacific
extension of the Milwaukee road, and
is in the heart of a rich country,
known as the Palouse country, which
is especially adapted to wheat. The
country is rolling and without timber:
in sections there is considerable rock.
The town is in a valley, about a mile
from the foot of a large lake, it is
yet very small but several buildings
are now under construction. We
have a large country to draw from
and the prediction is that this will he
a very good trading point. The bank
here lias been open but two weeks
but finds business #erv satisfactory.
I am of necessity a bachelor at
present there being no place 1 can ob
tain for a home. That will soon be
ended though—thanks be when it is
for I don't enjoy this boarding out
stunt with Mis. M. at the other end
of the country.
We are enjoying spring here new
and farmers are busy in the fields.
We have had a very good winter, and
prospects are good for a iarge crop
Although thisisadry farming country
they know no such thing as complete
Thanking you in advance for your
kindness, and assuring you that we
look forward each week to tiie ar
rival of your newsy paper, 1 remain.
Yours very truly,
