—The condition of the mail service in
this territory is simply execrable. Yes,
damnable. Five to eight days are con
sumed in getting a letter, or papers, from
Pullman to Tacoma, or Seattle, or most
anywhere else. And vice versa. The
daily papers of those cities, and of Walla-
Walla, are usually five days in transit
—that is, if they are traveling at all; and
this, too, on supposably direct mail and
rail routes. We do not wonder that the
press and people of tho territory are
howling vigorously. There is no excuse
whatever for such mismanagement. Fire

A "curfew" ordinance (an ordinance
prohibiting boys under 18 years of age
from being on the streets after 7 o'clock
p. m., unless with written permission
from parents or guardians) is a good
law, and one that Pullman should enact
and enforce right soon. Boys that are
given the run of the streets at night de
velop into unmitigated nuisances and
hoodlums in a short time.
Christmas Tree.—The Sabbath
schools and churches will join in a grand
Christmas-tree entertainment at the M.
E. church on Monday evening next

o'clock, prompt. An invitation is ox
tended to everybody, big and little,
young and old, rich and poor, to attend
and assist in properly observing this fes
tive anniversary. It is requested that
all presents for the tree be left at the

labeled, and the committee will arrange
them and see that each gift is given to

tion takes place.
Improvement Company.—The gentle

The executive officers will bo chosen at
the next meeting, which was fixed for
the 26th inst. at 7.30 p. m. The main
object of this organization, as we stated

business and manufacturing interests of

In tho case of George Dacres vs. the
O. R. & N. Co., for killing a bull, on
trial at Walla Walla, Judge Langford, on
motion of the attorney for the defend
ants, gave a non-suit, deciding that the
company was not liable to pay damages
occurring because it had not fenced its
track; that under common law tho own
ers of cattle must keep them off tho
premises of others. In short, that tho
owner of real estate, oven if a railroad
company, is not bound to fence against
the depredations of cattle, in the absence
of a special statute. This is a very im
portant ruling, by which, if sustained,
railways need not fence their tracks.
