CUSIIMM IN WHITMAN
Opened the County Campaign at
Pullman Saturday Xight.
Talked Finance, Prosperity and
So-called Imperialism ~At
Colfax Tonight,
In the midst of the most violent wind
and rain storm the Palouse country hr.s
ever experienced Congressman Francis
W. Cushniau opened the cau.paigu for
the Whitman county republicans at
Pullman .Saturday iiigut. Notwithstand
ing the violence of the equinoctial ht.irm
this platform faroriteof Washington re
publicans was greeted at Pullman*
splendid additorium by a voting audi
ence of about 400 people. The financial
trust, nnd "imperialistic" it-nues, and
democracy in general, were handled in
the forcible manner characteristic of Mr.
Cosfaman, wbo in again the nominee for
congress. The strong wind beat a loud
tatoo on the roof, yel the t-peaker
warmed the bearta of hin republican
auditors and gave the doubting Thom
ases of the opposition many reason*
why they should mount the stool of re
pentance.
Mr. Coehnan wan received upon bin
arrival at Pullman in a heavy downpour
of rain by members of the local repub
lican club, but with handshaking and
informal receptions the speaker got do
ren after hie hard ride from Walla
Walla.
W, ,). Davenport, chairman of the re
publican county central committee, was
made cbairmao of the meeting and in
trodaced Mr.Coshman,who was received
with a hearty round of applause.
Mr. Cushruan opened with a pretty
compliment to the handsome room fur
niehed for the meeting and Bpoke t»f the
worth of the Agricultural College and
School of Science, which he said lm*
made the city of I'ullnmii famous.
"The only way we can read the future
is by the pant," said Mr. Cushman. "I
call your attention to the not long ago
past, which the opposition Is making a
studied effort to avoid. When a nation
is prosperous you may rent assured it is
well guided.
"I call your attention to 1892,
and 1*1)4, when there came a cry of free
trade. My old grandfather used to say
to me, 'Frank when we have free trade
you wiil be able to buy more for a dol
lar/ It did come about, but where did
the truth of grandfather's statement
lie? [ found the American people could
buy more for a dollar—but they tdidn't
have the dollar.
"We have attained prosperity without
the aid or consent of any other nation
on earth since those days. Iv 181)2 we
had reached a h'gb tide of prosperity
under the administration of President
Harrison. We enjoyed it. Then came
Cleveland and tariff tinbering. We did
not enjoy it. Today every son and
daughter willing to work lift'their faces
"to the sun of prosperity such as this re
public has never before known.
"The two longest periods in the his
tory of this nation were from 1861 to
1865 and from 1892 to 1896. During
the first period we were passing through
a great civil war, and during the latter
period a democratic administration was
passing through us."
Colonel Bryan an a prophet was
brought to attention and shown as }>!■
--ing wrong in every prophecy made since
1890. Tli-' question v\as asked, "How
many limes must a man deceive you for
yon to put unlimited confidence iii him?"
Mr. Cosh man spoke Wednesday night
at Palonse to n large ami enthusiastic
crowd. !>ud at Rosalia last bight. He
will address the citizens of Colfax at the
court house this Friday nigut, Septem
ber 28, and at Tefcoa October 4, at
7:30 p. m.
SAY HK STOLE OATS.
Man With Three Names Landed in
the County Jail.
A man who has uiven his name: us
Sam Junes in the country about Sun
shine, h warehouse point between Pull
man and Moscow and in the country
about .Johnson: who gave his name as
Joe Smith when arrested at Starbaek
and who was recognised by Sheriff Ca
nutt as Godfrey Clofner, is in jail
charged with the theft of GO sacks of
oats from J. (). Cooper uear Johnson.
All the fall, farmers of that vicinity
have been losing grain from their tields.
When Mr. Cooper lost 60 sacks of oatsj
and a German neighbor about the same
amount, Mr. Cooper hauled the re
mainder of his pile in. That night a
man was men by a neighbor to enter
the field, but the oats were gone and he
drove away empty.
Mr. Cooper found where his oats,
some of the Hacks of which were branded,
had been sold to a Moscow livery stable.
He got a description of the man and
pucceeded through the sheriff's office in
having him arrested at Srarbuck. where
he went when he found Mr. Cooper was
on his trail.
The prisoner had |650 in paper money
in his socks when Deputy Sheriff Carter
and Mr. Cooper, who went to Starbuck
after him, searched his clothing. Among
the money were three $100 bills.
There is convincing evidence against
Clofner. and it is thought the wholesale
grain stealing about Johnson has been
put a stop to by his arrest.
Stole Employer* Money.
Thos. Zimmerman, an employe of E.
A. DeGolier at his luuch counter in the
Newcastle saloon, in spending ten days
in jail for aodae familiarity with hi* em
ployer* money. Zimmerman was left on
shift Tueoda? Dight by Mr. DeGolier with
a btock oi btefsteaks and other eatables
on hand sufficient to bring in about $15
from the trade. When Mr. DeGolier went
to work Wednesday morning the stock
wae gone and the till empty. Zimmer
man \v?)K found at his lodgings by
Sheriff Canute, locked iv. He was ar
rested and arranged before Justice Kirk
land on a charge of petty larceny. He
pleaded guilty in a way, but befween his
tears declared he took but $2 r>o and
left $.'J in the till. He cried like a baby
and was fined £25 and costs, which he
will work out on the chain gaDg.
Death of Mrs. Abell.
Mrs. A. E. Abell, mother of Mrs. J A
Byrne, died Friday morning at 5 o'clock
at St. Ignatius hospital. The lady had
been ill for some time aud her condition
became serious a few daye before death.

ing with tke remains for Marshalltown,
lowa, the old home of the family, where
interment hns been mad;- beside the
bodies of her husband and son. Mrw.

Character, beloved by all of her large
circle oj friends.

Rev. G. H. Newman, formerly pastor
of the Cjlfax Baptist church, latterly a
resident of Kitzville, has returned to Col
fax and expects to purchase a home,
move his family hen> and permanently
remain.
FAY INTEREST ON COUNTY FUNDS.
First National Bank •of Colfax Of-
fer* Four Per Cent.
Coifax, Wash., Sept. 20, 1900.— W. .1.
WimiuH, Treasurer of Whitman County —
D^arSir: It appears from your financial
statement to the county auditor, an
published in- his official report uuder
date of -July 1, 1000, that there wan in
your hands cash to the amount oi $151,
--0^9.24. An examination of the records
of the treasurer's office nhows that at all
times during the past five years there
has been a large amount of money which
has been deposited in banks without any
return to the county for the use of such
funds. It is the general practice in most
states to compel banks which are the
depositaries of public funds to pay a
reasonable compensation into the pub
lic treasury for the same. On behalf of
the First National Bank of Colfax, 1
offer to pay into the general school fund
of the coirnty or into such other fund as
the county commissioners may direct 4
per cent interest on the average daily
balance of the county treasurer,provided
the entire county funds are deposited
with the First National Bank of Colfax.
in addition we will furnish every facility
for handling the county business, and
give a surety company bond for che safe
custody of the pubiic funds.
You will observe that, should the de
posit average as much as stated in your
last quarterly report, this arrangement
will yield a sum sufficient to nay the en
tire clerical expense of the treasurer's
office, including the treasurer's salary.
Thir» will result in a great saving to the
taxpayers and a consequent reduction in
taxation. Knowing that you have the
interests of the taxpayers at heart, I
trust that you will give a proportion so
obviously to the county's advantage
early and favorable consideration. This
bfiuu a matter in whi^h the publi- is so
vitally interested I take the liberty of
making this an open letter.
Requesting an early reply, 1 am yours
very truly,
Edwin T. Coman, Cashier.
HOLDUP THAT WASN'T
Farmer's Story of Robbery is
Doubted By Officers.
Nick I)e Long, a farmer living on
Sheriff Canutt's ranch, routed Deputy
Sheriff Carter out of bed at 10 o'clock
Friday night with a wild and woolly
story of having been held v:> by two
men while passing the 0 11. «£ N. coal
bunkers,near the old depot. He claimed
to have been robbed of $280 in gold,
asserting that he had just cashed some
wheat checks with Aaron Kuhu and
thought nothing of carrying it about, ac
he often carried §400 or $500 in his
clothes.
Deputy Carter rolled out and beat the
whole north end of the city for hourß in
the darkness in search of a clew or sus
picions characters, though at the time
be was strongly inclined to disbelieve the
story. lie found nothing.
\fter due inquiry, the sheriff's office
announced that there had beeu no hold
up, in tlu> opiuion of the officers, as up
on investigation, it was found De Long
had cashed no wheat checks.

CONFIDENT WE WILL WIN.
Chairman Shively Is Certain of Ite-
publican Success.
"The outlook for republican victory in
the state, all down the line, was never
brighter than at the present time," says
Chairman J. H. Schively^.f the republi
can state central committee, to the i*ost-
Intelligencer.
"The official work of the republican
state campaign is now fairly under way.
Committee organization has Iteen per
fected in all the counties, polliug has
been practically completed in many ol
the precincts, public meetiues are of
daily and nightly occurence in all parts
of the state and the issues of the bitr
conflict are very generally understood.
Under these circumstances the temper of
the people is beginning to be publicly
discovered and through official sources
something of r may be learned.
"The reports coming to me from ail
parts ul tne state indicate a complete
victory," said Chairman Schively yester
day, 'not only for the national ticket
but lik.-wise for the state ticket and the
various county tickets.
"The farmers east of the mountains
have realized that their prosperity is
due to the McKinley administration;
that prosperity and republicanism are
syuonu:ous terms. They heartily in
dorse the policy of the national" ad
ministration and are determined to put
the state in line with the nation, in
order to fully enjoy all the benefits of
McKinley's second term.
"Senutor Frink and his colleagues on
the state ticket are gaining strength
daily. As the voters of the state look
into the matter they arc realizing mure
and more fully that the strength of the
present fusion administration springs
more out of the fact that a republican
state senate, aided by a few stalwart
populists and democrats, prevented the
pernicious legislation which Gov. Rogers
and his friends tried to pass, than it
does from any positive virtue.
The Effect On State Warrants.
"The claim of the fusionists that the
Rogers administration has brought the
state warrants to phr, reduced the state
debt, and so on, is being appreciated
and understood as more of a compli
ment to the republican national admin
istration than to the state fusion ad
ministration.
"The four years immpdiateiy preced
ing the advent of Rogers, under demo
cratic national administration, by the
way, experienced the most severe panic
through which the country has past-ed
in recent years. The people were not
able to pay their taxes. In this state
delinquent taxes aggregating, in round
numbers, nearly $1,000,000, overhung
the people. Within the tirwt year and a
halt of McKinley's administration some
where between $600,000 and #900,000
of this money was paid iuto the treas
ury of the state.
"Why shouid the warranty not go up
under these circumstances? Rut 'What
in the world' the voters of the state ; ( re
asking, 'did Rogers have to do with
this?"
"In every county from which we receive
reports, and that includes every county
in the etate, conditions are much more
favorable to our success than they were
even two years ago. Our meetings are
much more largely attendee), our people
much more enthusiastic and our workers
are united in the determination that the
adverse majority of four years ago shall
be more than turned in our favor.
"The reports of disaffection in our
ranks, out of which the opposition is
tryiug to make capital, are springing
from the camps of the enemy and not
from us. The. fusiouists are pursuiug
these tactics to keep the eyes of the
voters from seeing the disaffection and
disruption of their own ranks.
A Confession of Weakness.
"The boast of the fusion committee
that Gov. Rogers will run ahead of his
ticket is, in reality a confession of weak
ness on their part and show 9 that they
consider him a burden rather than a
help. Kveryone who is at all familiar
with the tactics of the opposition knows
that where they expect the least they
claim the most.
"Everywhere throughout the state the
populists are asserting that the Rogers-
Turner-Sniveiy combine has sold them
out in order fo perpetuate iteelf in con
trol of party affairs.
''Looked at from any standpoint,
whether from the reports of our friends
or the boasts of our enemies, it |is per
fectly clear fo my mind that the coming
election in November will record a great
victory for the republican party in the
state of Washington on both the na
tional and state tickets."
