SMOOTH JOHN TOBIN
Touched (he Treasury With His
Fine Kalian Hand.
Cashed a Warrant Alter Two Years
Which Had Hern Camelled
By the CotnmlMionen.
Smooth John Tohin, former populist audi
tor of Whitman county, has finally succeeded
in touching the county treasury for SlL'O with
a warrant which had been ordered cancelled.
Gazette readers may remember that at the
March, lSl'tf, meeting of the commissioners
Tobin presented a bill for $120 for postage on
a campaign document. This bill had form
erly been rejected by Commissioners T>yons,
Davis and Bancroft. Recognizing the poli
tical value to them of his campaign document
when it was sent out in August, 1895, the
several employes of Mr. Tobin contributed
most of the 8120 needed.
When Tobin presented this Ml] in March,
1898, ore of these contributors, Clarence
Tarbet. demanded his if'AQ back in caee Tobin
collected from the c unity. The bill was pre
sented to Commimionars Davis ami Stephens
in tha absence <>f Hinchliff, and they ordered
it paid. Mr. Hincbiiff immediately notitied
Tobtn that he would enjoin the payment of
the warrant, when Tobin promised he would
never present it.
Warrant Ordered Cancelled
At the next meeting of the board, in April,
1898, the bill was reoonadered and the war
rant ordered cancelled. The commissioners
failed to have Mr. Tobin bririf the warrant
ba'ore th m and cancel it under their eves!
They took his word that he would do it—but
his word did not go far. He had written on
the Btub the cancellation order and this was
one time written in tho register of warrantp,
but has been erased by some one. Mr. Tobin
never cancelled the warrant, and when he left
the county took it with him.
Last .January Tobin sent the warrant to
John Pattison for collection. It was cashed
January :< by the treasurer, as on its face it
was regular and no cancellation order had
ever been filed by Tobin against it with the
former treasurer. It was sent to Auditor
Corner with the treasurer's quarterly report
in April and was discovered by Miss Pocock
in checking up. Auditor Corner has been
looking for this warrant for months, as he
knew it had been ordered cancelled but it
had disappeared and he did not know but it
had been destroyed.
Treasurer Windus wrote to Tobin, who is
now at Valparaiso, Indiana, asking lor an
explanation of his act. Tobin replied, asking
for a few days' time in which to make a fnil
statement, but said:
"My act in regard to the warrant was not
accidental. No. sir! It was deliberate, and
what is more, it was right, and I can justify
it and will. Not a single word of apology do
I owe to anyone, and Done will be given."
While it is possible that Tobin cannot be
held legally responsible for this draft on the
treasury to pay Kb campaign bill?, wtrch have
once been paid by his employes, he should
certainly be held morally responsible for eras
ure of the cancellation record and failure to
cancel the warrant as ordered by the commis

John White returned Saturday from
Hay Htatiou, where he has been lor the
past two months in charge of the O. R.

from a rail which be wan cutting. Mr.
Bird has now entirely recovered and re
turned to his duties. Mr. White has
been ordered to Willada, to take charge
of the section there, and was in town for
the purpose of arranging for the re

a few days.

Failing to get all the saw timber

An outfit of ten or twelve big teams was
sent into the woods on the upper river

feed and supplies were taken from Colfax.
This v\ill be a rather costly method of

one inning when the game was about
two thirds played, permitting Colfax to
score four or five runs at a critical time,
the game would have been a close and
exciting one with a small score.

MISSION IN HOOSIEUDO3I
Palouser Preached With Effect oi
the Banks of the Wahash.
Winter Wheat in Indiana and Ohio
is a Complete and Dismal
J. _L. Irwin is one of those enthusiastic
Hoosiers who, having come west and pros
pered, believes in the country this side of the
Rocky mountains. Two months ago he re
visited for pleasure the scenes of his boyhood
in Indiana and Ohio. He carried witli him
'200 samples of the agricultural products of the
fertile Palouse and acted as a missionary
among the people "On the Banks of the
Wabash Far Away." Mr. Irwin exhibited
these wherever a crowd of two could be found.
Hundreds of people were made acquainted to
a large extent with the beauties, resources and
possibilities of the country to which the
United States expanded less than sixty years
Mr. Irwin returned Monday evening from
his trip. To the Ga/.ette he said:
"On my way east I found a number of dis
gusted 'homeseekers' on the back track. They
had tickets good for return for 21 days only.
They rode straight through to the coast and
never saw the country except from car win
dows on the main lines of railways, which, as
every westerner knows, furnish no proper
Hiandard by which to judge the country. They
had never heard that there was such a country
as the favored and fertile Palouse.
"In Ohio and Indiana are hundreds, thous
ands, of people who have the emigration fever.
The trouble is that they know not where to
turn. They want to come west—anywhere to
get away from the life they live in the crow Jed
east. Bat they have never heard of the Pa
louse or any other favored western section.
They need preaching to, and I put in over
time in sermonizing on the advantages of this
country lam glad to call my home. As an
instance, at Lebanon, Ohio, an agricultural
implement show was being held. I leased
counter space in a prominent place and spread
out my samples of Palouse products. From
morning until night I held an interested
crowd-not with my oratory, but with my
samples of P.ilouse products. The pe«ple
thought impossible my commonest tales of
the fertility of the Palouse, and no doubt
many are still praying that I be kept out of
the liar's purgatory.
"In Ohio and Indiana there will scarcely be
a bushel of wheat. They sow winter wheat
only, and it is all killed, Man after man
begged me to give them but a dozen grains of
the spring wheat samples I carried, that they
might experiment with it. They wanted
something to sow when their winter wheat

unreasonable in demanding that the officers
turn their offices into detective bureaus and
made cnnplaints, while the people stood back
and did nothing. He was willing to proceed
asainst any alleged violator of the law, when
proper complaint is filed, but he is unwilling
to appoint himself judge, jury and executioner.
C. M. Wyn.an spoke of what can be done
and gave an outline of the state laws and city
ordinances. He was of the opinion that there
is already plenty of law for the regulation of
the saloon business. All that is necessary is
its enforcement. Miss Wilcox opened and
Rev. J. T. Collins closed the meeting with
Rev. J. W. Flesher directed attention to the
next meeting, which is to be held at the Bapt
ist church on the evening of May 17. Rev.

The league is a comparatively new organiz

The influx to the weat of farmers is shown
by the sales of Northern Pacific company,
which has disposed of a million acres of farm
ing lands in the last four months. All these
lands were in the western Btates. and almost
a million acres were in Washington. Thia is
the claas of immigration that will confer most
benefit upon the state, and aid most in ita de

farming lands will become producers, and not
only self-sustaining, but add to the taxable
property and wealth of the state.
