KAUFFMAN NAMED AS THE KITTITAS JUDGE Has Practice Law in Ellensburg Since 1890, Having Been in Partnership With Judge Gilliam of Seattle LAW PARTNER ALSO OF JOHN E. FROST 01 the-State Tax Commission—Short Sketch of Mr. Kau'fman by the Olympia Correspondent ef the Post Intelligencer—Gov. Mead's Appointment of Him Satisfactory. Olympia, Manh 11.—Governor Mead this afternoon announced the appointment of Ralph Kauffman of Ellensburg as judge of the superior court for Kittitas county, under the terms of the new law creating four additional judges. This completes the four. "Ralph Kauffman is a native of Pennsylvania, 46 years old. His father, a Union soldier, was killed during tlie Civil war. Mr. KaufTman was graduated from the law department ef the University of his native state. He moved to Ellensburg in l* s, < and established the Ellensburg National Bank, of which Institution he was cashier until 1890, when he resigned to enter the practice of law, forming a partner ship with the present Judge .Mitchell Gilliam of the superior bench of King county. Thi-, partnership continued until Judge Gilliam's removal to Seattle in 1895, when Mr. Kauffman formed a partnership with J. E. Frost under under the firm name of KaufTman & Frost. This partnership continued until Mr. Frost was appointed a member of the state board of Tax Commissioners in 1905, Mr. Kauffman is at present city attorney of Ellensburg. He has never been active in politics, although always a republican. He is also known as a profound student, a man of pro nounced literary tastes and attainments: possessing a judicial mind and temperament and being remarkably well read in the law. THE BEET SUGAR FACTORY What It Means to Ellensburg, Kittitas County And the State of Washington. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer has this to say relative to the beet sugar factory to be located in this city: Within the next ninety days the construction of a large beet sugar plan! will be commenced in Ellensburg, the second factory of tbe kind to be opened in thisstate. The plant already in operation at Waverly has proved commercially profitable; has been of the greatest value to the farmers in its vicinity and has saved to the state a very heavy amount oi money which in its absence would have gone abroad for the purchase of sugar. Every beet sugar factory which is established lv re and which is operated luccessfully is worth to the state very much more than its cost. The productive capacity of tho land in sugar beets is, measured in dollars and cents, very much greater than the same land In Hay other 0 f tbe staple crops of this A DAWN OP BRIGHTER HOPES—A LIGHTHOUSE FOR THE NATION'S SAFETY— A PEOPLE'S SHIP OF STATE—A GOVEIINMENT OF JUSTICE FOR ALL MEIv Vor.. xiv. latitude. The cultivation of sugar beets means the employment of very much more farm labor than the cultivation of a like area in other staple crops. The factory itself gives employment to a large amount of labor, and the linal product of the factory takes the place of stijfar which, in its absence, must be purchased abroad. In every direction the state and the community in which the factory is located benefit by it. The factory at Ellensburg starts with ample capital and under experienced management, which should insure its profitable operation; for the business is no longer iv its experimental state. It should be the forerunner of similar factories, until the state of Washington is in a position to produce a home of the sugar which it consumes. ALFALFA PASTURE. Some Objections to ll* I up us Voted In Missouri. The Missouri experiment station is credited with tbe following in regard to nlfulftt: As v pasture alfalfa has many disndvantages. The crop makes v most excellent pasture for all classes of ntllmals, but groat precaution must be taken In pasturing it. The difficulties arise from the Injury to the plants which close cropping may cause and to the fact that in cattle and sheep It Is liable to cause bloat. According to re ports received from fanners over the state, those who have attempted to make n continuous pasture of it have fulled. After the plants are well established it will stand much closer pasturing than when plants are young, but care must always be taken to prevent too close cropping, especially with sheep, and the number of animals allowed on a field should therefore hi; limited to several less than might be supported. Excessive tramping, especially on young iields or In wet weather, Is very injurious, and the crop should therefore not be pastured In early spring. I.ate fall pasturing is also harmful if the plants are not allowed time to recuperate before winter. The usual result of continuous pasturing seems to be the killing out Of the alfalfa and the coinlug In of blue grass. The best method seems to be that of Intermittent rather than continuous pasturing and then for only such time ns will prevent Its being cropped too closely, 'i he danger from bloat may be lessened If not entirely removed by using care to turn the animals on for only short periods at flrsl and then allowing them free access to v good blue grass pasture. Winter rood. Oilmen] also Ims a special value in connection with Jit winter feed. The oil it contains is of very pronounced benefit to tbe alimentary canal, as can be observed by the pasture-like consistency of the manure; and by the soft skin and generally fine condition of the cow Cottonseed meal Is a tremendous milk maker, but is a dangerous feed when used Immoderately. \„ occasional fanner grinds wheat regardless of price for feeding stock. This is also a losing plan in most cases Wheal has to be very low or other feed very high in price to Justify the plan. \ ion of bran will make more milk than a ton of wheat because It con tains a greater percentage of the milk maU lng element, protein. For feeding young pigs middlings Is superloto wheat, pound for pound, as it contains L S bran and less Hour, both of which arc inferior feeds for that class of StOCk.-W.G J. in Ohio Farmer.

Ellensburg, Kittitas County, Wash., Mar. 15, 1907 LAND REGISTRATION TORRENS SYSTEM APPROVED Senate Provides for Registering Title to Lands —Senator Graves' Amendment to Section 34 an Important One MOTION OF POSTPONEMENT BLOCKED Measure ai It Pints Makes Use of System Optional—Tranifers of Land are Made More Easily and More Cheaply by a System ol Registration. OLYMPIA, March 14.—The senate this afternoon passed the bill to authorize the use ef the Terrens system of registering titles to lands. As the bill passed it is optional whether this system shall be used. tinder this system an owner of property can have the courts puss on the title, and then tranifers afterward are made more easily and more cheaply by a system of registration. The bill passed by a vote of 25 to 12 after attempts by Senator Presby and Senator Graves to have it postponed indefinitely had failed. Per haps the most important amendment was that of Senator Graves striking out section 34, which says: "No title to registered land in derogatieu of that of the registered owner shall ever be acquired by prescription or adverse possession." This amendment was adopted without opposition. Seaator Hands moved the words, "all acts and parts of acts, if any there be necessarily in conflict herewith are herewith repealed," be stricken. The vote was a tie and the lieutenant governor decided it by voting against the amendment. RETURNS UNEARNED SALARY McMillin, Former Railroad Commitiioner, Restores (o ihe Hate $2,092,16.
