ted from Spokane through the
Palouse country, were here yester
day in company with Waldo G.

The gentlemen were driving
through from Spokane over the
proposed route of the electric line,
their idea being to inform them
selves of the character of the coun
try through which the road would
run, and the possibilities of the
country in the way of furnishing
freight and passenger traffic for the
road in wnich they propose to in
vest their capital. They were in
thusiastic in their words of praise
for the Palouse, remarking its
wonderful richness, one point that
appealed to their being the small
amount of waste land in so large a
country. They drove here from
Colfax, and then on to Moscow.
From Colfax they were accompanied
by Wilbur Yearsly.
