G. Copgrove, of Potneroy, as a re
gent, the friends of the institution

Eastern Washington rejoices at
the signal victory of our friends in
the legislature, and the crushing
defeat met by the railroad lobby.
The commission bill as passed is as
•strong and virile as its friends
would have it, and proves that the
legislature and not the lobby is the
law-making body in this state.
Gov. Mead has at all times de
manded the enactment of a bill
such as this, and should be given
due credit for his efforts to thiß end.
The governor has appointed F.
J. Barnard to succeed himself as
regent of the college, and S. G. Cos
grove, of Pomeroy, as regent, vice
Judge H. D. Crow, resigned. The
names of U. L. Ettinger and R. C.
McCroßkey, appointed by Gov.
Mcßride, have been withdrawn
from the senate in common with all
other Mcßride appointments.
Whether or not Gov. Mead will re
appoint thes« two. or make new
appointments for the places, is not
known. There is also a vacancy
on the board, caused by th» death
of Regent Sharp, to be filled.

The number of farm animals* as report
ed in the table represents, the chief of
the bureau of statistics explains, as
nearly as obtainable without an enumer
ation, the actual numbers on farms and
ranges on January 1, and are not strictly
comparable with those published one
year ago, the present figures being the
result of a very careful investigation by
correspondent! and field agents without
exclusive reference to the relation euch
figures should bear to those of last year.
That there has been a material reduction
in the number of sheep, together with a
slight increase in the numbers of all
other farm animals, admits, he concludes,
of no doubt.
The total figures for the entire United
States give the per head value and ag
gregate value of the different classes of
stock as follows: Horses ($70.37), $1,
--200,310,020; mules ($87.18), $21*1.840,
