FALL FAIR MEETING
Dates of Whitman County's Fair
Are Fixed.
Some of the Attractions Determined
On—Premium List Soon be Sent
to Kvery Voter of County.
At a meeting (if the directors of the
Whitman County Fair held Saturday it
was decided to bold the fair two weeks
earlier than last year and the dates were
fixed for Sept. 25 to Sept. 20 inclusive.
Everything pertaining to the full meet
ing in progressing smoothly ami there
jh cv ry project ff>r a successful exhibi
tion. The premium! on live stock, at
the suggestion of the directory, nan
been raised about 200 per cent and a
good exhibit in assured in thin depart
ment an v lurge number of fine stock
have been imported into the county
during the lust year.
It whh found pcecconry to reduce the
purses for horse races somewhat over
those of last year aH the grounds require
a large amount of repairs, particularly
the live stock stalls, which will be en
tin-Iy remodeled, so stock will bp per
fectly safe and also comfortable while on
exhibition.
A balloon ascension as usual will be
one of the many attractions this year
and if everything is favorable one will
be given on two different days of the
fair. Other features of entertainment
will be trick acrobats, match races,
entertainers and a big free dance at the
armory every night. The free dance
was one of the successful issues of last
year's fair, and its pleasing features will
be duplicated this fall. The Colfax
orchestra will furnish music, as will the
band for the fair.
The premium list is vow in the hands
of the printer and will soon Le ready for
distribution, and will be mailed to every
voter in the county.
While the pui>es for horse races have
been reduced somewhat over last year
quite a good sum has been hung up for
the events each day, reaching a total of
$700. As the LewistOD fair follows
Whitman county's, it is believed there
will be a number of horses drop in here
to com.iete in the races and then later
in the Vineland meeting.
All the management asks this year to
make the fair an enjoyable event to
every man, woman and child in the
county is their cordial assistance in
attendance, and if just one exhibit could
come from each home it would make the
largest exposition ever seen in the
county.
VACATION NEARLY OVER.
The Knelish School Will Open
September 12.
Prof. English intends to again open
up his school this year. The fall term
will begin September 12. It is the ex
pectation of Prof. English to have a
new building for his work this year. The
place selected for the building is on the
two lots on Wall street, just above
Herford'a, This makes a centrally
located school.convenient for both cuds
of the city and removed far enough from
the business streets so that the nou-e
need not interfere with the work of the
students.
At the beginning Prof, and Mrs.
English will do the teaching, putting in
other forces as the demands increase.
They have been identified with educa
tional work many years, both in the
east and went. Since they began their
work in Colfax they have had over 600
young men and women under their care
and direction. The greater part of
these are today holding important posi
tions throughout the state. The work
of Professor and Mr*. English has proved
their worth in the educational field and
should tie a guarantee of their patrou
age and success in the future.
It is the intention to put in a full
busim He department under the care and
supervision of a man thoroughly pre
pared fur the work. For the present it
is their purpose to do the work natur
ally dove in the various preparatory
Hchools.both in the English and classical
Hues, fitting their students to occupy
positions of worth and trust in the busi
ness and social world.

time and Mrs. Stinson was a short dis
tance from the house when the fire broke
out. She was unable to cave anything

THE CITY COUNCIL.
Concluded to Bore a Well Near
the Pump Station.
The city council met Monday night,
but The low stage of water was not a
Bobjeet oi discussion to any great extent.
All members were there except Council
men Baker and Van Schoick.
The principal cause of the meeting
seemed to be a ratification of bills pay
able, and §780.37 was disbursed.
Marshal Mackay reported fines collect
ed for July at $101.50.
Chief White made application for 500
feet of new fire hose, and it was referred

The appointment of K. W. Weinberg

The matter of city water was talked
over, and by the votes of Councilmen
Lippitt, Harroll and Mastin, Good and
Dumdi voting nay, it was resolved to
bore an 8-inch well somewhere convenient
to the pump station. The proposal of
Jncob Arrasmith to bore an artesian
well on his farm was not entertained.
Commissioners Had Their Say.
The county commissioners took a
hand in the proceedings and cent in a
communication like this:
"The county commissioners, at their
meeting now in session serve this notice
on the city authorities:
"At a meeting of the board of county
commissioners, August G.it was directed
that the city authorities of Colfax be
notified that hereafter any person dump
ing rubbish or garbage on any oi the
public highways leading into Colfax, or
in any of the streams, in the vicinity of
Colfax, will be prosecuted to the full
extent of the law."
J. I). Hagan filed a treasurer's receipt
for $600 and asked for a liquor license,

recommendation that the city attorney
prepare a new set of bonds and applica
tion for license.
Ijost in Barn Fire.
Last week's barn fire on the farm of
It. L. McCroskey on Tennessee flat,
through which Walter McGuire lost
heavily, was fairly well insured in agen
cies represented by R. R. Rupert. On
the contents of the barn $1750 was car
ried. Horses were insured for $2850,
but there was no loss because Mr. Mc
(iuire was absent with them beading in
the lower country. There was also $400
on the headers which were out and $320
on hay. Eleven hundred sauks of chopped
feed and 1100 or 1200 bushels of wheat
were destroyed, with only $400 of in
surance upon them. Farm machinery
to the value of $1200 was burned, with
but $200 of insurance.
Politician Went Fishing.
The Newport Miner has this to say
about Chairman Davenport of the re
publican county central committee: W.
J. Davenport and son Harry, of Colfaxj
Kpent last week at that famous trout re
port, Sullivan lake. Mr. Davenport is
cashier of the Bank of Colfax and chair
man of the republican central committee
of Whitman county, and we will venture
to say that if the voters of that county
are as pcrsistenly pursued as were the
speckled beauties on Harvey creek, that
there won't be a populist vote cast in
Whitman county this fall.
