WHITMAN SCHOOLS ARE RAPIDLY
FORGING TO FRONT-DOINGS
AT STATE CAPITAL
Olympia, Jan. 31.—At a recent
meeting of the Washington Board of
Education seventeen new high schools
were placed on the accredited list,
and of this number two were from
Whitman county, the high school at
Endicott being accredited for its 9th,
10th, 11th and 12th grades while the
Maiden school was accredited for its
9th grade. The other schools placed
on the accredited list were Bothwell,
Cle Elum, Concrete, Cosmopolis,
Creston, Edison, Ferndale, Granite
Falls, Monroe, Renton, Richmond,
Sultan, Sumas, Vashon and Winslow.
At the meeting the Board also de
cided to grade the examination in
Grammar for the August teachers'
examination as follows: 70 per cent
on the questions submitted and 30
per cent upon the English used in
answering the questions in History,
those not taking history being mark
ed upon some other paper to be se
lected by the examiner. This is done
to test the ability of the teachers to
use good English.
An investigation of the Odessa
University, supposed to be located at
Odessa, Washington, will also be
asked by the board of the postal au
thorities, as it is claimed that this
school is offering to sell degrees, and
an investigation will be asked for; so
far as is known to the educators of
this state no such school exists.
Superintendent F. B. Cooper, of
Seattle, and Principal H. M. Hart, of
Spokane, were appointed as a com
mittee to consider and report upon
the matter of the subject of sex
hygiene being taught to the pupils
enrolled in the secondary schools.
The Governor on Wheat.
The members of the Grain Grow
ers' Convention, which met at Pull
man, Washington, gave an enthusi
astic welcome to Gov. Hay, who at
tended the meeting. Gov. Hay has
spent many years in Eastern Wash
ington and is known as one of the
authorities on grain in this state. The
subject of doing away with smut in
grain is being agitated, as it is fig
ured it costs the farmers of the state
many thousands of dollars each year.
Fees Must Be Paid.
The Attorney General will institute
suits to compel the payment of the
license fees due the state from corpo
rations which have failed to comply
with the law unless they pay up. Ac
cording to a list turned over by 1. M.
Howell, secretary of state, to the at
torney general there are more than
400 such delinquent corporations do
ing business in this state, and among
them all kinds of business is repre
Would Not Tax Furniture.
The declaration was made by State
Tax Commissioner T. D. Rockwell in
his address before the county asses
sors at the convention in Olympia,
that household effects should not be
assessed for taxation purposes but
that they should be classified as not
being property at assessment time.
He said that a large amount of such
property was now escaping taxation
and that the revenues 01 the state
would not be materially affected by
the exemption of such property. He
also said that he believed that if
credits and stocks were eliminated
from taxation for the benefit of the
man of wealth that other exemptions
should be made for the working man
ana that it will increase the number
of settlers, and promote honesty when
the assessor come around. Farmers'
implements and manufacturing ma
chinery he says should also be ex
empted from taxation. It is expected
that at the next campaign that the
question of exempting household fur
nishings will be an issue, and it is
probable that it will carry.
Present Checks Promptly.
The supreme court has ruled in a
recent decision in a Stevens county
case that when a check is issued by
any one person to another and the
person to whom the check is issued
holds the check for an unreasonable
time before presenting it for pay
ment, that the payee is at fault and
that recovery cannot be had against
the claims of other creditors. Failure
to present a check within a reason
able time works against the person
holding the check, according to the
ruling of the court.
In Class By Itself.
It is claimed by the Dupont Powder
company, owing to the safer manner
in which the plant is operated, and
for that reason it wants to be classi
fied by itself and not put in a class
! with other powder companies. The
company has agreed to pay its assess
ment to the industrial insurance com
pany if it can be put in a separate
Colfax Men Get Insurance.
The state industrial insurance com
mission has allowed Alfred Yaisly,
Colfax, $56.55 for an injury to his
back, while to Geo. V. Roberts of
Colfax, the sum of $12.50 was al
lowed for a fracture of a rib.

BALL LEAGUE IS ORGANIZED.
Strong Aggregation in Sight for Col
Colfax is assured of a good ball
team this season and the plan of
forming a league is rapidly being de
veloped. At a meeting in Spokane
Tuesday Colfax was represented by
Alton Tredick, Paul Pattison, Charles
Larue, W. A. Nelson and J. C. Mona
han. Four towns have been voted
into the league and two more teams
will probably be added. The four
charter members of the league are
Colfax, Coeur d' Alene, Palouse and
a team from Spokane. It is antici
pated that another Spokane team and
one more Palouse town will be added
to the list. Rosalia and Oakesdale
are both after the place open to a Pa
louse town and Rosalia seems to be
in the lead. Another meeting will be
called in about two weeks and by that
time it is expected that more defi
nite arrangements can be completed.
The present plan is to open the
season about April 1 and have a large
share of the early games played in
the Palouse country and after July 1
turn most of the games to Spokane
and Coeur d' Alene.
Alton Tredick will take charge of
the local team and he is already mak
ing up a list of players. Many of the
last year's men will be in the game
again this year. Among the players
already slated are Stuart Stapleton,
"Tip" Hamblin, Rodney Small, Alton
Tredick, Virgil Cannutt, Gus Morley,
George Cushman, Carl and John
Wynn and-Percy Manring.
COUNTY UP NEXT
HEARING BEFORE COMMISSION
ERS IS SET FOR NEXT TUES
Speculation is rife over the prob
able action of the Whitman county
commissioners next Tuesday at 11
o'clock on the matter of the classifi
cation of the county. At their first
meeting in November the commis
sioners adopted a resolution direct
ing the county officers to appear be
fore the board on the first Tuesday
after the first Monday in February to
show cause, if any they have, why the
classification should not be lowered
from the seventh to the eighth class.
The demand for a change in the
classification of the county was made
by the Farmers Union and Grange
for the purpose of having the county
in the class in which it legally be
longs, as they said, rather than for
any slight saving that might be made
in the salaries of the county officials.
The county officers have been
working on the plan to secure affi
davits from people who were not
counted in the last federal census,
with the hope of being able to prove
to the commissioners that the census
was not accurate. They have se
cured many affidavits and the show
ing will be made Tuesday. Commis
sioner Whitlow is in California and
the eyes of the interested public are
centered on Commissioners Ellis and
Other business before the commis
sioners at their meeting next week

WHATCOM COUNTY OFFICIAL FAIL
ED TO SPIRIT AWAY
Good luck more than anything else
was all that kept Harry J. Welty from
spending at least a day or two of this
week in the penitentiary at Walla
Walla. The supreme court had re
cently denied Welty a new trial in
the case wherein he had been found
guilty of accepting deposits in the
Home Savings bank of Bellingham
after he knew the bank was insolv
ent, and a commitment had been is
Welty had said that he would not
fight the case further, but a few days
ago he changed his mind and decided
to ask for a rehearing on the ground
that one of the jurors at his trial had
previously been in an insane assylum
and since the trial had been again
committed to such an institution. In
order to get a rehearing it was neces
sary to secure a writ of habeus cor
pus after he had been taken in cus
tody. For several days he had been
expecting an officer from Whatcom
county to take him in custody and a
writ had been prepared ready for the
signature of the judge at the proper
Sunday morning a deputy sheriff
from Whatcom county walked into
the sheriffs office unannounced and
asked to have Mr. Welty called in.
The request "was granted and when
Welty arrived the visiting deputy an
nounced they were to leave on the
westbound train which was due in a
few minutes. It is understood that
the deputy intended to take Welty to
a hotel in Walla Walla and from
there telephone to the penitentiary
for a guard to take welty to the in
stitution. Attorney Charles Hill,
who has been assisting Welty in his
defense, was called on the telephone
and rushed to the rescue. In the
meantime the deputy and his prisoner
had started for the depot but
the deputy became bewildered
in his directions and cros
sed th§ river. When near the old
Congregational church he realized
he was off the track and asked Wel
ty the way to the depot. The desired
information was given and they re
traced their steps to Main street.
About this time, by good luck,
Judge Neill was on his way to the
depot to meet a friend and was call
ed to his office where he signed the
writ. The document was placed in
the hands of Deputy Sheriff Geo. L.
Corner, who made a run for the
depot and served the paper just be
fore the Whatcom deputy and his
prisoner were ready to step on the
Welty was at once taken before
Judge Neill who fixed his bond at
$10,000. Provision had been made
for this and the bond was already
prepared and signed. The bondsmen
are G. W. Larue, Will Schluting, W.
M. Duncan, F. N. English, J. F. Rich
ardson, M. J. Maloney, T. J. Welty
and B. F. Sherfey of Colfax, C. H.
Hinchliff of Elberton, N. W. Mc-
Gee, H. W. Price, J. E. Nessly, C. H.
Russell and J. M. Palmerton of Pull
man, representing more than a quar
ter of a million dollars.
The writ was issued as a matter of
course and in order to give the par
ties time to secure evidence the date
of hearing was set for February 15.
Judge Neill announced that he con
sidered himself disqualified to hear
the case on its merits and stated that
another judge wouM be here at that
Another interesting feature of the
case was the fact that Attorney
Charles Hill fearing that he might
not succeed in getting the writ be
fore the train left, requested Deputy
Sheriff Cole to go aboard the train
to take Welty from the custody of
tne Whatcom deputy on telegraphic
instructions that the writ had been
issued before the prisoner was out of
the county. This precai tion proved
unnecessary and Cole, who had al
ready boarded the train, came back
on the helper engine from the Crest.
Had Welty been taken to the pen
itentiary he could have secured the
writ of habeus corpus and release on
bond but it would have necessitated
spending at least two or three days
behind the bars.
W. D. Outman, who succeeded H.
J. Welty as president of the Home Se
curity Savings bank, entered a plea
of guilty a few days ago to the charge
of accepting deposits after he knew
the bank was insolvent and was fined
$2,500. Outman was formerly a
Pullman man and is well known in
Eastern Washington. He passed
through Colfax Wednesday on one of
his trips for a harness company, for
which he is a traveling salesman.

FOR UNION STORE
ENTHUSIASTIC FARMERS PROMISE
TO BRING MORE BUSINESS
A Farmers' Union Store for Colfax
over-shadowed all other business at
the regular bi-monthly meeting of
Colfax local of the union last Satur
day. So enthusiastic were the mem
bers present over the proposition that
before they left their place of meet
ing agreements had been made for
$20,000 worth of stock in the pro
posed company. It was decided that
nothing less than a $50,000 capital
would fill the bill to start. Judging
from the way offers were made they
believe this amount will be easily se
One of the leaders in the new move
said, "We do not intend to interfere
with any other business in town. We
will make Colfax a better business
town than ever."
John Bloom and A. E. Kirkland
were appointed as a committee to
make further investigations.
The plan discussed is for stock
holders to pay the same as any one
for their merchandise and take their
profits entirely in dividends. The
Walker building, to be constructed
this spring, was mentioned as a suit
able home for the store at the be
ginning. That building is to have a
After as much progress as possible
at this meeting had been made on the
store proposition, the question of
grain bags was taken up and it was
well into the evening before the con
tract was finally closed.
The bid of Balfour-Guthrie com
pany was considered the best and a
contract was closed for 300,000 sacks
at $7.50 per 100 laid down in Colfax.
Other bids were a trifle lower but the
Balfour-Guthrie company agreed to
distribute the sacks and make all
collections and this was what looked
best to the farmers. A difference of
$300 on the order could have been
made with another company had the
Union agreed to make the collections,
but the members preferred to have
the business off their hands even
though the sacks do cost a little
Kerr-Gifford company was the suc
cessful bidder at Pullman last week
when the Union at that place let the
contract for 300,000 grain bags for
$7.15 per 100 delivered at Pullman.

DAYS IN PALQUSE
BEN MANRING WRITESIOFiTHE
EARLY INDIAN CONQUEST I
IT WHITMAN COUNTY.
For the first time an accurate and
detailed account, has been published
of the expeditions of Colonels E. J.
Steptoe and George Wright against
the Coeur d' Alene, Spokane and Pa
louse Indians in 1858. The author is
Benjamin F. Manring, at present
clerk of the board of county commis
sioners, formerly county treasurer
and for many years one of the well
known residents of Garfleld. The
book contains 280 pages of interest
ing local history, copies of official
documents from the war department,
treaties with the Indians and corres
pondence between people who made
possible the early settlement of this
wonderful and productive Inland em
pire. It also contains many illustra
tions of the army officers, Indian
chiefs and scenes closely connected
with the early expeditions.
In his preface to the interesting
volume Mr. Manring says in part:
"Meager and unauthentic details
of the story gained circulation among
the early pioneers and were by them
rehearsed from memory to those who
came after them.
"This volume, the result of long
research, was primarily suggested
through a lingering love of the pio
neer days. The pleasures that were
woven into the thin mesh of early day
society and the occupations of those
first citizens, as well as the hardships
and privations which came into the
country hand in hand with the pio
neer himself, are matters that have
frequently passed in review of the
writer's memory. They are of a i»»-r
--iod which of itself constitutes an im
portant epoch. From meditation
upon these things has emanated the
desire to place in the hands of the
people the facts of the events which
made it possible to settle and develop
this great, rich section of the country
in unbroken peace—of the time Just
beyond the real pioneer.
"The writer has not Btriven for
literary distinction, but rather for the
object of assembling the details of the
consecutive events which total the
history of the expeditions, and if that
be approved he will feel that the
task, which has been one of pleasure,,
will not have been in vain."
The writer also telis who lent as
sistance in gathering the details,
which go to make the work of such
personal interest. The different
chapters are entitled: Tradition,
Steptoe Butte, 1858, Causes, Steptoe
Marches North, Still Northward, Bat
tle of Tohotonimme, The Council, The
Retreat, Colonel Steptoe's Report,
Preliminaries, Measuring Strength,
Retribution, The Spokanes in Coun
cil, The Lonely Battle-field. It also
incorporates biographical sketches of
Colonel Edward J. Steptoe, Captain
O. H. P. Taylor and Lieutenant Wil
'Conquest of the Coeur d' Alenes,
Spokanes and Palouses" is on sale by

be handled by the local bookstores.
The book will sell for about $1.25.
