A special to the Star of Idaho, under
date of the 25th ult. says: The bill
establishing a territorial University at
Moscow, has passed in tho house. The
council having passed it last week, it
will certainly become a law, as Governor
Stevensou is known to be friendly to
the bill, because he considers it a death
blow to annexation.
As exchange, iv answer to the ques
tion, what makes one town grow into
a city while the others remain villages,
ssiys: It is because in one case there are
men of push and energy, who are not
afraid to spend their time and money to
boom their town. They erect substan
tial buildings, organize stock companies
and establish factories and secure rail
roads, work for public improvements
and use every means in their power to
induce pooplo to locate in their town.
They send their local paper to acquaint
ances they think can be induced to lo
cate in their town. When strangers
arrive the attractions are shown to them
and they are treated with so much kind
ness that they fall in love with the town
at once. A 2>laee only succeeds when it
begins to work for itself.
O.vksuale has petitioned Congress to
divide Whitman county and create a
hew county, bounded as follows: Begin
ing at the northeast corner of Whitman
county, running north six miles, west
to the east line of Lincoln county, thence
south six miles, west six miles, thence
south to the southwest corner of town
ship 18, north of range 39 east Willam
ette, thenoe east to the Idaho line, thence
north to the place of beginning. The
petition states that Whitman county is
too large, being 34 miles long by 45
miles wide. That the county is too
large is conceded by every one outside
of Colfax, and that it must be divided is
the natural consequence.
The Colton Eagle has the following
to say of Pullman: PuHman is 85 miles
south of Spokane Falls, on the Spokane
& Palcuse railroad. A branch of the
0. B. & N. which extends westward from
Moscow to Palous* Junction, also crosses
at this point. Most all branches of
business are well represented. A fair
idea of the amount of business transact
ed here in tho course of a year may be
formed by referring to tho general mer
chandise sales of McConnell, Chambers
& Co., which were 125,000 during the
E. H. Lettermau, one of tho leading
grain merchants, informed the Eagle
correspondent that last year's shipment
of wheat was nearly 400,000 bushels, be
sides a vast amount of Has, barley and
oats, which would make an aggregate
amount of more than 500,000 bushels.
Pullman can boast of eight warehouses,
with a capacity of 400,000 bushels.
Those who have not had the good for

>V hit.nun County.
Wher Whitman county was created
anJ its boundaries defined by an act of
the legislature, passed Nov. 29, 1871,
which took effect the following year, its
area was then about 5,000 sqnare miles
and had a population of about 200. Iv
1883 the population had increased to
9,000, and the legislature that year made
the counties of Adams and Franklyn
from the western portion of it and thus
reduced its area to its present limits
which are stiil largo enough for at least
four goixl counties with a present popu
lation of 4,000 each. It is situated in,
and comprises almost the entire country
known as the Palonse, which we described
in last week's herald, hence, what was
said about the Palouse country applies
to Whitman county. Its present bound
aries include nearly 1,400,000 acres, and
all of it good farm laud. The eastern
part, of which Pullman is the trade cen
ter, is by far the best land for agricultu
ral purposes in Washington territory,
and has no rival in any state or territory
in the Union. The western portion of
the county is more especially adapted
to stock raising—an industry which is
very profitable here as tho winters are
short, and very little feed, if any, is re
Farming land, unimproved, is worth
from $10 to $23 per acre, nr.d fast ad
vancing in value. The time is not far
distant when land that can now be pur
chased for $20 and $25 per acre will be
worth from $40 to $50, and. of course,
all other land will increase in proportion.
This will be tho inevitable result from
the fact that more money can bo made
at farming here, with the same amount
of capital invested, than any place in the
United States. This is owing to the
fact that tho land is easily cultivated,
the crops certain and the yield immense.
No government land can be had in this
county except at a long distance from
the railroad. Tho soil is of volcanic ash,
from two to five feet deep, with a heavy
clay snbsoil and will stand an unusual
amount of rain or drouth without injur
ing the crops in the least. The surface
is a heavy rolling prairie, in fact, hilly,
but tho top of the highest hill produces
equally well with the valleys, and when
accustomed to it, no inconvenience at
tends tho cultivation of even the steepest
The Snako river on the south, the Pa
louse in the center, with their numerous
tributaries, and tho liock and Pino
creeks in the northern part furnish an
abundant supply of water for stock,
while springs of the purest water, soft
and free from alkalies are found on al
most every soetion. Practically there is
no timber in the county except a little
along the streams, but at a distance of
12 to 15 miles from Pullman plenty of
it can be had for fuel at about $?.1O per
cord, cut. But if the farmers would
plant more trees in a few years they
would have sufficient fuel on their own
premises, as trees grow very rapidly here
and do not require much care.
The present population is about 16,
--000, mostly Americans who are progress
ive, energetic, industrious, and possess
an aggregate wealth of about §20.000.
