THE COLFAX GAZETTE
MUST LOOSEN UP
ASSESSORS WANT TO KNOW HOW
MUCH HAIN IS HELI
Olympla, Jan. 24.—The conven
tion of the assessors of the state
opened in Olympia on January 15,
with all the counties represented ex
cept Asotin. San Juan and Chehalis
counties. The assessors of the East
ern counties introduced a resolution
calling for the filing of lists with the
assessors by warehouse men showing
the amount of wheat in storage on
March 1, and the owner of it. Some
wished this rule to apply to commis
sionmen and automobile dealers.
Particular attention was paid by the
east side assessors to methods of eq
ualizing the assessments on grain
and fruit lands, while the west side
men considered the problem of as
sessing timber lands fairly and the
question of equalizing the assess
ments on logged off lands so as to
force them out of the hands of the
speculators. Geo. W. Walter, asses
sor of Whitman county, was put on
the committee of Farm and Grazing
Lands and on the committee on Live
Stock. He also read a paper entitled
"The Assessment of Grain," before
Whitman Has Most Sacks.
The apportionment of grain bags
among the various counties has been
received from C. S. Reed, by Gov.
Hay. It ii estimated that two mil
lion bags will be made at the state
penitentiary for the season of 1912,
and these are apportioned among the
various counties. Fifteen of the big
grain producing counties get all but
140,000 of the two million sacks, and
these are the only counties credited
with a certain number, the other
counties receiving their sacks, as
needed. The largest number of
sacks goes to Whitman county which
Is to receive 420,000 bags. Lincoln
county gets 320,000 and Walla Walla
county 240,000, while Whatcom
county gets only 15,000.
County Men Gets Insurance.
Frank L. Pearce of Larson, Whit
man '-ounty, has been awarded $30
in final payment for injuries to his
right hand, by the state industrial
Insurance commission, and the com
mission has also allowed a monthly
payment of $30.00 to Amasa P.
Smith of Farmington for a fracture
of the first dorsal vertebrae.
State Gets Forest Monej.
The federal government has turn
ed over to the state as its 25 per
cent of the forest reserve fund the
sum of 124,111.36, and John G.
Lewis, state treasurer, has appor
tioned this amount among the 24
counties of the state which contain
portions of national forests, accord
ing to the area of such forests in each
county as compared with the total
area in the state. This money goes
to the support of schools and roads.
The largest antount apportioned to
any county is 124,104.13 which goes
to Stevens county, while Thurston
county gets only $1.00 as its portion.
Demijohn Is Unbroken.
Under the local option law a demi
john when filled from a larger recep
tacle Is an unbroken package, accord-
Ing to a ruling of the supreme court
In reversing the superior court of
Snohomlsh county. The supreme
court says that a package Is any re
ceptacle holding a given amount
which Is put up with the considera
tion of safety In transportation as
well as convenience, and that there
Is no need of a man ordering a bar
rel of whiskey if he wants only a
quart, but that the law does not per
mit four men to order a gallon of
liquor and each take a quart. In the
case in question a man in Everett
wanted some liquor and as Everett
Is a "dry" town he ordered it from
Snohomish which is a "wet" town,
and the dealer in Snohomish filled a
small demijohn out of a larger one
and when he delivered it, was arrest
ed and convicted for delivering goods
other than in an unbroken package.
The supreme court, however, held
that the case should be reversed.
Water Said to Be Bad.
With the public service commis
sion has been filed a complaint pro
testing against the quantity and
quality of water being furnished in
the town of Morton, Lewis county.
A hearing will be had at an early
date. This is the first complaint
which the commission has ever re
ceived as to the quality of the water

POSTAL FUNDS GO BEGGING.
College Town Sends Savings Deposits
to Colfax for Safe Keeping.
The postal savings bank system
throughout the country *s proving
everything that those who were re
sponsible for the law claimed for it.
In Colfax it is not proving of as much
use as in some other places. At the
present time the deposits here amount
to about $800, divided up among 16
depositors. In all 34 accounts have
been opened and 18 have been closed.
A total of 66 deposits have been made
and 33 withdrawals are on record.
During the harvest season the de
posits reached the highwater mark,
or about $1400. The same system is
in use at Pullman but no bank in that
city qualified as a depository and
their funds amounting to about $1500
are on deposit in this city.
In the 5185 postal savings banks
in the United States more than four
teen million dollars have been placed,
on deposit. It is stated authorative
ly that most of this money has been
brought from hiding, and has not
been in circulation. It can be seen
that these millions will find their way
into the channels of business, and
will add just that much to the re
sources of the country available for
present business needs. This one ad
vantage of the system is an important
PROSECUTOR'S ANNUAL REPORT.
Many Criminals Plead Guilty and Are

STAINED GLASS CONTRACT LET.
New Congregational Church Will
Have Many Windows.
The building committee of the Ply
mouth Congregational church have
let the contract for the windows for
their new church edifice to Ford
Bros.' Glass Co. of Minneapolis. The
windows to be furnished are the very
best obtainable. The firm supplying
them is supplying windows also for
the new Congregational churches at
Boise, Idaho, Hood River, Oregon,
and the $250,000 church which the
Plymouth Congregational of Seattle
is erecting. It is expected that all
the windows, some 20 or more, will
be donated by the members of the
church and others. It is suggested
that a set of five windows be devoted
to the memory of Rev. Gushing Ellg,
the founder of Congregationalism In
The contract for the construction
of the church building will probably
be awarded within the next few days.
Plans for Three New Buildings.
Plans and specifications are being
prepared by J. R. Good & Co. for the
construction of three two-story busi
ness blocks in this city. S. A. Nixon
has decided to erect a 25-foot front
building in the same block where
Drelfus & Co. will erect a building
with 60-foot front and W. J. Walker
one with 35-foot front. All three
buildings are to be two stories high,
have basements and are to be con
structed of the best pressed brick.
COLFAX, WASHINGTON, JANUARY 26, 1912.
WILL RETURN SOON
DEEPLY INTERESTED IN POWER
AND IRRIGATION PROJECT
FOR NORTH PALOUSE.
Governor M. E. Hay will be in Col
fax on the first two days of March
and will attend the meeting to be
called for Saturday, March 2, for the
purpose of furthering the proposed
conservation project for the North
Palouse river. This was given out
after Governor Hay had talked with
Mayor Tifft and a few prominent
Whitman county men while the gov
ernor was a guest in the city tor an
hour between trains Wednesday
The governor had been to Pullman
to address the Wheat Growers con
vention Tuesday evening and on his
way to Spokane came through this
city for the purpose of conferring
with Colfax men on the conservation
problem. He was met at the station
by Mayor Tifft, Senator Oliver Hall,
John Arrasmith, former state grain
inspector, J. R. Good, Claude Hol
lingsworth and several other citizens,
who escorted him to the office of
Senator Hall. No mention was made
of politics during the governor's stay
in this city.
People all along the Palouse river
are awakening to the possibilities
that lie before them and it is expect
ed that the meeting called for March
2 will result in a movement to bring
greater possibilities to the people of
Whitman, Adams and Franklin coun
ties. Data pertaining to the proposed
project should be gatnered by people
ah along the river and be presented
at the meeting.
F. A. Metz, the Elberton banker,
was in this city Tuesday on business
and in conversation with a Gazette
representative expressed his enthusi
asm over the probability of the peo
ple of this county being able to inter
est the government in the conserva-
tion of the waters of the North Pa
louse for power and irrigation pur
poses. He believes that if the gov
ernment can be induced to send en
gineers here to investigate the pro
ject there will be no question about
the discovery of the feasibility of the
proposed plan. Mr. Metz declares in
favor of more people in the county
and he believes the way to get them
here is to make it possible to produce
more from small tracts. He believes
all the river flats for miles and miles
may be made into veritable, garden
spots and fruit tracts. Sufficient
water runs to waste every spring to
more than irrigate all tnese flats and
it could be held in reservoirs near
the headwaters of the river until the
dry months when it is needed.
Shoots Own Leg Instead of Coyote.
Newton Huffman, aged 19 years, 1b
in St. Ignatius hospital recoveriag
from a gun shot wound received last
Sunday morning while returning
from a coyote hunt. His 32-caliber
rifle was accidentally discharged and
the bullet entered the calf of his leg
ranging downward and broke the
large bone just above the ankle. An
X-ray examination shows the bullet
to be lodged in the bone. Young
Huffman lives with his brother-in
law, Algie Day, on the Palouse road.
He was alone at the time of the acci
dent but managed to crawl to the top
of a hill where his shouts attracted
the attention of people at the house.

CITY FAILED TO
COUNTY ENGINEER FIXES BLAME
FOR DAMAGE TO COOPER
County Engineer J. M. McCaw
blames the city for the accident to
the Cooper Lake bridge last fall and
in his report to the county commis
sioners makes recommendations for
the repair of the bridge. His report
On examination I find that it will
be necessary to repair the floor of the
Cooper Lake bridge during the com
ing spring or summer. As is known,
the floor of this bridge was badly
damaged by the Warren Construction
Company's roller last fall. The city
of Colfax, contrary to promises made
to the county commissioners and to
this office, neglected to place signs on
the bridge warning persons crossing
the structure with traction engines to
use floor plank under the wheels
when crossing. The roller crossed
the bridge two or three times safely
but on crossing again ran very close
to the curb on the west side. In so
doing the hind wheel ran over a
stone, which had fallen from one of
the wagons, concentrating the entire
load on the wheel on one point caus
ing the floor to give away under the
The sand and broken stone used in
the floor concrete was good material
and met the requirements of the
specifications. The cement used con
sisted of two standard brands known
as Superior and Red Devil cement.
The mixing and placing was well
done. On account of having no test
ing machine and having no time to
send samples of the cement away for
testing, this office had to rely upon
the reputations of the brands of
The Multiplex steel plate used was
highly endorsed and I was persuaded
to use it in the floor. It has since
developed that the parties making
the endorsement were not familiar
with the real value of the plate, in
fact knew little about it. Had the
plate been as strong as represented
no failure would have occurred.
In order to repair the bridge so
that there will be no future trouble
with the floor, I am submitting to
you a design which I am confident
will meet the most severe tests. In
this design it is intended to have the
concrete in the present floor removed
and replaced with a new concrete
slab reinforced with high tension
steel rods, not relying on the multi
plex plates to, carry any load, only
using them as forms for the concrete.
The curb is also made to act as a re
inforced beam sustaining a part of
the floor load.
This work can be done in two ways
under the supervision of this office:
(1) By free day labor; (2) By
prisoner labor. By using the prison
ers in the county jail to remove the
old floor the repair work can be done
by paid labor for about $480. By
using the prison labor entirely and
employing paid labor for the special
work the job will cost the county
about $417, this includes the relaying
of the blocks.
The following is an estimate of the
quantities of material needed: Crush
ed stone, 36 cubic yards; sand, 12
cubic yards; cement, 54 barrels;
lumber for forms, 700 feet, board
measure; steel bars for reinforcing,
DEAD AT SAN DIEGO
WAS PIONEER IN BUSINESS
Mr. MacKenzie Owned Much Prop-
erty in This City and Spokane.
Roderick MacKenzie, father of
Charles L. MacKenzie of this city,
died in San Diego, California, last
Friday night of heart disease. His
wife and daughter, Mrs. Carrie Mc-
Kinnon accompanied him to Califor
nia early in the winter and were with
him at the time of his death. They
were guests of relatives here for some
time before going south and at that
time Mr. MacKenzie appeared in ex
cellent health although he was 72
years of age.
Burial was at San Diego as Mr.
MacKenzie was very fond of that city
and had often expressed a wish to
"live and die" there.

BOONE MAY GET PARDON.
Petitions and Letters Are Being Con-
sidered by Governor.
Governor Hay is considering the
petitions and letters asking for the
pardon of H. M. Boone who is charg
ed with having wrecked the Palouse
State bank about three years ago.
Boone was convicted of larceny by
embezzlement and was sentenced to
not less than one nor more than ten
years in the state penitentiary at
Walla Walla. He appealed to the
supreme court but last week his mo
tion for a new trial was denied and
the commitment was placed in the
hands of the sheriff but on tele
graphic advice from the governor the
commitment was held up. Governor
Hay says he will go into the letters
and petitions which have been filed j
with him and promised to be guided
by the evidence and law in the case.
The governor is expected to either
grant or refuse the pardon asked
within a few days.
Boone hag been at Hanford on the

Two kinds of machines will be

combine harvester and place them on
a wagon, will sell for about $30. As
soon as a few machines are finished
they will probably be taken through
the country and demonstrated to the

GRATEFUL TO COLFAX FRIENDS
Charles Hnbbard Plans to Return to
the Far North.
Many old timers in Colfax and
Whitman county will remember
Charles Hubbard who owned what is
now the Minnick brothers farm on
Dry Creek. Later Mr. Hubbard went
to Alaska where he made money. At
one time two friends borrowed all
Hubbard had and then hit the trail.
Hubbard followed and overtook the
men and in a gun fight which follow
ed he shot a man in self defense. He
was convicted and sentenced to the
penitentiary but his Colfax friends
made a strong fight for his release.
While going to LaCrosse the first
of the week J. A. Perkins of this city
met Mr. Hubbard on the train and
had a long visit with him. Mr. Hub
bard was on his way to Waitsburg
to visit a son. He declared that he
was coming back to Colfax sometime
to thank his friends who stood by
him during his trouble many years
ago. Mr. Hubbard plans to return
to Alaska later.
Mr. Shirkey Sells Out.
George H. Shirkey, who has been
in the jewelry business in Colfax for
the past six years, has sold his inter

DOES NOT LIKE MEAT.
Objected When Companion Threaten
ed to Make Him Into Sausage.
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney F. L.
Stotler was in Rosalia Tuesday to at
tend the trial of John Bowman, who
according to the complaint filed by
Godfrey Hildebrand, "did threaten to»
shoot me through the head and make
sausage meat out of me."
The two men had been employed a«
farm hands by Thomas Hastings, liv
ing near Rosalia and had an argu
ment over the number of buckets of
milk which Bowman had milked on a
certain day. One said it was three
buckets and the other said it was
four. They decided to make a bet
but before the question had been de
cided their argument had waxed so
warm that a "near fight" occurred,
resulting in the arrest of Bowman.
The case was tried before Justice
M. H. West and as a result Bowman
was fined $1 and costs, amounting to
Vaudeville at Pastime.
Sterling and Sterling will be at the
Pastime theater tonight and Satur
day with their entertaining musical
and shooting act. They come well
