—The following from the Minne
apolis (Minn.) Times will be of in
terest to many Pullman readers:
"Win. Grosskopf, one of the best
■ known grain men of Minneapolis,
was elected yesterday first vice pres
ident of the Coe Commission com
pany, and at the same time made
manager of all lines and offices west
of Helena, including the Washing
ton wheat country, Portland, Taco
ma and Seattle. Mr. Grosskopf's
home and headquarters will be in
Spokane. He has been long in the
grain business, starting as a tele
graph operator twenty years ago.
He went to the Pacific coast in the
interest of the Coe Commission Co.
about 18 months ago, and for the
past year has been in charge of a
large number of outside offices con
trolled from the main office in this

will have a 50 cent coupon attached
. to them, which will be good ior one
admission to the fair. They will be
good for return up to October 10.
The regular rates to the fair will be
one and a third fare, with a 50 cent
admission coupon attached. The
tickets will be on sale as far as Walla
Walla from October 3 to 9 and will
be good for return until October 10.
—The public schools are to open
Sept. 12th, and then the boys and
girls (the "future hope of our coun
try" ) will be very much in evidence.
They have had a long vacation, as
have their teachers, and should now
come back to their studies with re
newed vigor and a determination to
make the most of their excellent op
portunities. The importance of
such training cannot be over-esti
mated. It is of much importance,
too, that the best of instructors be
emyloyed, and in this respect Pull
man is most fortunate, our School
Board having used every effort to
secure the ablest teachers possible.
—That usually staid and respect
able span of horses, the Palace Ho
tel 'bus team, came very near
to a first-class runaway last Sunday.
Returning from the depot with the
baggage dray, one of the straps
holding the neckyoke broke, allow
ing the wagon to hit the heels of
the animals, and after a bit they be
came angry and made a desperate
endeavor to run; but the driver, none
other than the genial " Bill" White,
held on to them like grim Death,
and succeeded in stopping them
on Paradise street without damage.
—This is thjday of the hobo and
the hold-up and it behooves all hon
est citizens to maintain a close watch
upon this element as its member-,
hang about the town. Robberies
and fires caused by them are fre
quent in adjoining towns, and Pull
man may prove no exception. The
warehouses are favorite places of
rendezvous for these toughs, and
tftey should not be allowed to re
main near them on any pretext.
Keep 'em moving on.
Another Railroad Victim.
The south-bound local freight
on the N. P. ran over and killed an
unknown man at the Grand street
crossing last Monday evening at
about 7:30 o'clock. No one wit
nessed theaccident, audit isthought
the victim had endeavored to gain
entrance to a freight car or to the
brake beams, missed his calculations
and fell beneath the wheels. His
left arm and leg were cut off, the
abdomen torn open and contents
scattered along the track, and the
scalp entirely loosened from the
skull, presenting, altogether a shock
ing sight. The train had been gone
nearly half an hour before the re
mains were discovered. Death
must have been instantaneous. The
body was that of a man about 25
years of age, attired in the garb of
i a laborer. In his pockets were
found five cards of the U. S. hod
carriers union, three made out to
the name of Charles F. Tracy and
two to that of Win. Peterson. The
Tracy cards were from the Portland
(Ore.) branch of the union, and
Marshal Holt at once notified that
body of the accident, but up to yes
terday had received no answer, and
(tn Wednesday the remains were in
terred in one of the city cemetries.
Aside from the cards nothing was
found to identify the man. He
wore a watch, had $1.30 in silver in
one pocket, and carried a small
package of food, indicating that he
was "on the travel," as is the case
with so many of the working class
.today. Coroner Crawford came up
I from Col/ax and decided that no in
quest was necessary. The published
report of a wordy difference between
him and Marshal Holt in regard to
the disposition of the body is a bit
of romance on the part of the Re
view correspondent. Undertaker
Palmerton prepared the remains for
I wish, before the opening of Col
lege, to obtain a complete list of all
persons living in Pullman who de
sire to furnish either rooms or board,
or both, to students during the com
ing year. Will anyone wishing to
do so please communicate me at
their early convenience, giving full
particulars as to how much accom
they have, whether it be for board
or room, or both, whether young
men or young women are preferred,
etc., and oblige,
P. F. Naldkr, Reg., W.A.C.
—Superintendent Campbell, of
the Washington division of the O,
R. & N., says: "The movement
of the great wheat crop of eastern
Washington is not started yet. Just
a little grain is moving from Walla
Walla. Our line was never in a
better shape to handle an immense
crop. We have plenty of cars and
power at command and everything
will move smoothly when it starts."

will be held in the Pullman school
