218 COUPLES MARRIED LAST YEAR;
48 ASK LEGAL SEPARATION
IN WHITMAN COUNTY.

218 couples in Whitman county in
1911. In the same space of time 4 8
divorce cases were started in. the
county. In other words 22 divorce
cases were begun to every 100 mar
riages. Of the total number of di
vorces asked, 28 have been granted
and the others are pending.
County Clerk's Office.
During the past year 489 cases
have been filed in the county clerk's
office as follows: Civil, 303; crimi
nal, 6»; probate, 120.

$3193.25; 1909, $3217.40; 1910,
$3063.00; 1911, $3776.65. Since
1909, or during the service of the
present Clerk the Clerk's office has
been compelled to do the work of
the Jury Commissioners which cost
the County from $175.00 to $200.00
a year, this in reality should be ad
ded to the fees or deducted from
the expense of the office in making
comparisons with the past beyond the
year 1909. The new jury law re
quires far more work than was done
under tne old law by the Jury Com
missioners, for now a list must be
prepared of all the voters who are
tax payers, who are not in some way
disqualified for jury service.

WINS EASILY FROM FARMING
TOX; HOPES TO DEFEAT RO
In a fast and snappy game of Bas
ket Ball last Friday night, the Colfax
High Quintet vanquished the Farm
ington team on the latter's own floor
by the decisive score of 32-18. Farm
ington failed to show the class that
was expected and proved an easy vic
tim. The local boys jumped into the
lead from the start and were never
headed, the score at the end of the
first half standing 20 to 10 in favor
The Farmingtop. team pnt up a
plucky defense and did their best to
win but were helpless in the face of
the superior team work of the Colfax
men, the splendid passing of Lom
masson and Fuuer and the accurate
shooting of Goff at center. Goff
played his usual star game shooting
nine baskets from the field and two
fouls. Morrison did good work at
forward making two goals from the
field. Fuller guarded his man well,
besides shooting one basket. Bur
gunder at forward secured 4 points
on two well placed shots.
The team showed up well in this
game and are on their metal to defeat
the Rosalia High School five which
plays here to-night, "January sth. A
hard, close game is expected. Rosalia
defeated Colfax last year in the first
game in five years and the boys will
try to even up matters by a victory
this year. A good, enthusiastic
crowd will go far toward enabling
them to do so.

All Colfax and eastern Washing
ton was shocked to learn of the crit
ical illness followed by the sudden
death of Dr. Wm. Clay Cardwell at
6 o'clock Tuesday night. Leukemia,
a rare blood disease little understood
and for which medical science Knows
no aelp, was the cause of death.
Dr. Cardwell was not feeling per
fectly well when he went east early
in November to attend the surgeons
congress in Philadelphia as a dele
gate from the state of Washington.
While in New York a minor opera
tion was performed 10 remove a
gland from the doctor's turoat and
it was during this operation that the
surgeons discovered the presence of
the fatal disease, a carefui exami
nation and diagnosis was made by
the best doctors in America. There
was no mistake about the presence
of the symptoms of leukemia. All
that remained for the doctor to do
was to return home and arrange his
business affairs. His condition was
made known to only his family and
a very few intimate friends.
He was in his office nearly every
day through December until Thurs
day afternoon of last week when he
was suddenly taken worse and re
moved to St. Ignatius hospital. His
condition was reporter as critical on
Sunday. He lingered until late Tues
day afternoon, rational and able to
talk until almost the last moment.
Dr. Cardwell was 06 years of age
last June. At an early age ue de
cided to take up me study of medi
cine and before he was 21 years old
he was practicing at Carollton, Ark.,
his birthplace. He was an untiring
student and before completing his
professional training had graduated
from Marion Sims Medical college at
St. Louis, Vanderbilt University at
Nashville, Term., and the Polyclinic
school of New York. He was also
an annual visitor at the best surgi
cal clinics in the United States.
Before coming west Dr. Cardwell
practiced at Ripley, Term., where he
was also a railroad surgeon. About
11 years ago he came to Pomeroy in
Garfield county, where he practiced
in partnership with Dr. Kuykendall
until he came to colfax a little over
three y^ars ago. During his stay
here he practiced with marked suc
cess and was considered one of the
bright surgeons of the Northwest.
The Whitman County ftiedical so
ciety will miss an ex-president and
active worker. The doctor was also
a member of the Washington Medical
Society and the American Medical
association. He was also recently
appointed surgeon for the Spokane
and Inland railroad.
While living in Pomeroy Dr. Card
well married Miss Grace Crofford,
who survives as does one daughter,
Elizabeth, four years of age. He is
also survived by his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. J. N. Cardwell, three brothers,
C. W., Frank and H. H., and three

business there about the same time
that Dr. Cardwell began to practice

during the last few days of the doc
tor's illness. At the time of his
death Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Cardwell,

FARM HAND GETS $75
WITH FORGED CHECK
E. J. PESCHAU NABS FORGER AS
HE IS ABOUT TO LEAVE TOWX
A youth of such tender years that
he could not grow a beard if he tried,
is in the county jail charged with
forgery in the first degree. Chris N.
Crone, a farm hand working for D.
A. Luther in the Wilcox country since

clothes, over coat and other articles
up to the value of $72.25 and re

to be a forgery and the sheriff's of
fice was supplied with a description
of the forger.
The hunt lasted for several hours
and the capture was made by E. J.
Peschau, proprietor of the Leader
store, and Deputy Sheriff Eastep.
Crone had boarded the Inland train
for Spokane after discarding his
mackinaw coat, putting on a pair of
overalls and tying a silk handker
chief around his neck. By changing
his clothes he had thrown the officers
off the track but the man who had
accepted the bad check could not be"
easily fooled again.
When taken to the jail Crone de

speak with a friend. A search re

LOCAL MAN WRITES HISTORY.
Story of Indian War in Palouse Coun
try Soon Published.
B. F. Manring, clerk of the board
of county commissioners, has written
a history of the campaigns of Cols.
Steptoe and Wright on their expedi
tions through the Palouse country in
1858. The book which will contain
over 300 pages is now in the hands
of the publisher and will be out about
the end of this month. It is entitled
"Conquest of the Coeur d' Alene, Spo
kane and Palouse Indians."
For several years Mr. Manring has
been collecting material for this his
tory. When he first began to gather
information on the subject he had no
idea of publishing a book but later
found that his material was of such
general information that he decided
to have it published.
Mr. Manring came to this country
33 years ago and has established a
reputation for reliability that will at
once give his publication that stamp
of approval of his wide circle of
friends in eastern Washington. The
book will contain many illustrations
and will be handsomely bound. Its
appearance is awaited with interest.
New Tax System in Use.
County Treasurer W. M. Duncan
is preparing a new system for send

ment over the old system. The new
notice instead of being on a postal
card is prepared on a regular tax re
ceipt blank and in duplicate form.
This notice should be presented to
the treasurer for his signature in
paying the tax and will be a great
time saver to the office as well as to.
the patron. By presenting the re
ceipt all delay at the time of pay
ment will be avoided.
A blank will also be enclosed for a
statement of real estate tax.
Personal taxf* will be payable on
