mn BETTER BOND
Sheriff Not Satisfied With De
France's Security.
Shawnee Warehouse Sold and An
AssefiHiiient lievied to Square
Ip Ac-counts.
Chan. De France, under §1000 bond in
the second charge against him in which
he in accused of larceny of wheat from
the Shawnee warehouse, was notified
Thursday by Sheriff Cauutt that the
bond on this charge was considered in
sufficient and that it must be strength
ened. He was given a reasonable time
in which to secure the required security
for his presence in court when called, the
old bond to stand in the meanwhile.
The bond is signed by .Jos. Kennedy,
Mrs. Humphrey ami (i. \V. Ford.
SHAWNEE WAREHOUSE SOLI).
Peculation* Sweep the Corpora-
lion Oui of Existence.
According to au agreement entered in
to by the farmers wlio hud wheat Btored
in the Slmwnee warehouse and tbestock
boldera of the company, the people who
had grain in store which cannot now be
accounted for except through the pecu
lations of \V. H. Clifford, the managing
agent, find his alleged accomplices, are
to be paid "27> cents a bushel for their
wheat.
In order to settle up these claims,
amounting to between .*<>ooo and $7000
at this reduced price, the Shawnee Ware
house Company agreed to sell the ware
house at auction. This was done last
Saturday, the Pacific Coast Elevator
Company buying it in at $2105. There
were several other bids over $2000.
When this was done it was still
found necessary to levy an assess
ment of f.'H) a share on the 108 shares
of warehouse stock in order to meet the
claims. The par value of the stock is
$20 a share, and it has always been a
paying investment until this year, when
the big steal of 17.400 bushels of grain
was disclosed. It is now a costly wreck
to the holders of stock.
The Farmers' warehouse at Guy has
been purchased by Aaron Kuhn of Colfax.
REPUBLICANS AT TEKOA.
They Are Capturing Recruits From
Democratic Ranks.
\eeording to Tekoa visitors, the re
publicans of that vicinity are active and
growing in strength iv a way which de
moralizes the democracy. Before the
late fizzling convention of the democrats
Tekoa had organize! a strong republi
can club, with n membership greatly ex
ceeding the total republican vote of
1898; bat after the democratic fizzle it
began to grow surprisingly. Old line
democrats, like Dr, Chan. James, for in
stance, came boldly over then to the re
publican camp and publicly announced
that they could not longer stomach such
democracy. I>ast week live or six
former democrats deserted demoralized
democracy and placed their names on
the republican roll. As Judge Hanna
remarked to Brother Goodyear and
other fusiouists in the democratic con
vention of 18'J8, when a strong pull was
made for fusion, "1 must have a politi
cal home. If I cannot get it in the demo
cratic party, over the fence I go; and 1
warn you, right now, that when a man
votes the republican ticket once he is
nine-troths republican."
Bat Tekoa is not alone in the good
work. All over Whitman county former
good democrats have ween the light of
political reason and the prostitution of
the late democratic convention.
(LOSE OF THE SCHOOLS.
Most Prosperous Term in the His-
Tory of the City.
The Colfax schools, at the close last
Friday, showed the moat successful term
in the history of the city. Phis was
especially true in points of advancement
and attendance. Last year the total
enrollment was 644 and this year 678,
according to the report of Superinten
dent Ransom. The total days attend
ance last year was 75,178 and 78,848
this term. It was found necessary to
inflict corporal punishment in but .'52
eases of boys and two of girls during the
entire term of 36 weeks. This speaks
well for the discipline of the schools and
the deportment of the children. There
were but two cases of suspension, both
boys, and none of expulsion.
Closing Exercises.
The closing exercises, held Friday
night at the opera house, brought out
one of the largest crowds ever packed
into the house. The full program, as
heretofore published by the Gazette, was
successfully rendered, and every feature
heartily received and encored by the
audience. The receipts amounted to
$7t;.50, and a tidy sum is left over for
the benefit of the school library, to which
it will be applied.
Kairs on Horses.
The 0. R. k N. has announced a spec
ial rate on shipments of horses in car
load lots to eastern poiutn effective June
8. The instructions received by General
Agent Adams reads an follows: "June
8, 0. R. & N. will publish via Hunting
ton and the Union Pacific a rate of
$171.50, 36-foot car to Missouri river
common points and .S2OO to Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Louis on branded
range horses, valued at $10 or less per
head for train loads of 10 cars or more."
Brick Yard in Operation.
The brick making plant of A. J. Easum
&. Co., which has been in operation at
I'ullman for some months, manufactur
ing brick for the new buildings of the
Agricultural college, has been returned
to (olfax and is in operation at the old
brick yard in South Colfax. Fifteen men
are employed, and Mr. Easum expects
to make at least 200,000 brick for the
home trade this season.
Stole the Game.
The Colfax ball team played at Lewie
ton Sunday and were beaten 19 to 15,
but from manager to out fielder they
say they were simply umpired out of it,
and that this is putting it mildiy \
better word, they think, would be
straight theft. Decisions, according to
the players, were glaringly unfair against
tnem throughout.
Decorated By Woodmen.
Members of Royal Camp, No. IG,
Woodmen of the World, and the Women !
of Woodcraft observed the annual decor- ;
ation day of the orders last Sunday aud
the memory of departed Woodmen wan
honored. The graves of Neighbors Kay.
Metz, Torrance and McCarthy, the only
Woodmen laid at rest in Colfax ceme
tery, were visited by a large procession
of members of the orders, the regular
memorial service being observed. The
Stars and Stripes were carried at the
head of the procession and black mem
orial badges of the order were worn.
Later all visited the grave of Mrs. Ed.
Lloyd in the cemetery northwest of town
and the women of the circle decorated
the grave of their departed sister.
Says Husband Beat Her.
Virginia Leavitt has instituted in the
superior court a suit for divorce against
her husband, E. W. Leavitt. They were
married in Nebraska eleven years ago,
and the wife alleges cruelty and failure
to provide. They have three small
children. The cruelty alleged consists
of the wife being beaten.

COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, JUNE 8, 1900.
GOOD FOR OLD OREGON
Heaviest Republican Vote Ever
Cast in the State.
Both Congressmen Haye Largely
Increased Pluralities—Legis
lature Safe.
Portland, Oregon, June 6.—The Morn
ing Oregonian sums up the Oregon elec
tion as follows:
Oregon has gone republican by in
creased mfijorities. With reports yet
incomplete, Wolverton for supreme court
judge and Bailey for dairy and food
commissioner have carried the state by
majorities exceeding that given for the
republican ticket two years ago, when
the war spirit was active to swell the re
publican vote to abnormal proportions.
For congressman, Tongue in the First
district already has a plurality of 2029
votes, while in 1898 his entire plurality
was but 2037. In tLe Second district
Moody's plurality of the present incom
plete returns is 8200, whereas in 1898
he won by only G057. These figures
show that it has been a notable republi
can victory. Local issues mixed in the
election of members of the legislatures
that the increased republican vote is
not so apparent in those officers, but
the legislature is strongly republican.
From only one county of the state has
the complete unofficial return been re
ported—Benton. For all others, includ
ing Multnomah, the figures are more or
lees incomplete.
Early Returns.
Portland, June s.—Complete returns
from 22 counties out of the 83 in the
state show that in yesterday's election
the republicans carried the heads of the
ticket by at least 8000 plurality. Re
turns so far give Wolverton, reputlican,
for justice of the supreme court, a plu
rality of 7971. For congressman in the
First district, Tongue, republican, has
2421 plurality. In the Second district,
Moody, republican, for congress, has
5550 plurality. The republicans will
control both branches of the legislature
and will have a plurality of 22 on joint
ballot. The two houses will be made up
as follows: Senate—Republicans 20, op
position, 10. House—Republicans 80,
opposition, 24.
The woman suffrage amendment i« de
feated.
AMONG THE CHURCHES.
One of the most impressive ceremonies
that has ever been held in the Catholic
church in Colfax was witnessed last Sun
day when the sacrament of holy com
munion was administered to twenty
six handsomely dressed girls and boys,
The church was beautifully decorated
and the choir sang touching English
hymns. The program was well outlined
and was carried out with precision every
thing working like clockwork. Thechurch
was filled with relatives and friends of
the children. Too much praise cannot
be bestowed on Father Yerhaagen for
the care and training of his charge and
to Sister Superior for her interest which
aided so materially in the success of the
ceremony.
Preaching services at the United Pres
byterian church next Sabbath by the
pastor, Itev. W. W. Reid as follows: At
