pacific States Company Will
Make Changes in Service.
A new location for central office,
new phones, and a new system gener
ally is the program laid out by the
pacific States Company for Pullman.
M. S. Parmeter, the district man
agerof the company, has been here the
past week making the necessary ar
rangements for the change, and ex
pects to have the new service in oper
ation by March Ist, a part of the ma
terial now being on the ground.
The middle room on the ground floor
of the Flatiron block has been rented,
and the central office will be moved to
that location. All the old phones now
in use in the city will be taken out,
and new and up-to-date instruments
installed, the new ones being of the
"common battery" kind, all batteries
being at the central office. No ring
ing will be required for central, the
taking down of the receiver serving
the purpose of the usual central call.
The new phone is much smaller and
neater than the one now in use.
—Last Saturday Marshal J. B.
Holt handed his resignation to Mayor
Staley, to take effect Monday morn
ing. The resignation was accepted
and Deputy Miller was at once given
the star of the office. Mr. Holt's
reason for resigning was that the sal
ary was not commensurate with the
duties required, the recent order of the
council requiring the marshal to keep
clean all the cross walks being the
straw that broke the camel's back.
> Mr. Holt bad it figured out that it
would require eight hours work every
Sunday morning before church time to
live up to the order of the council re
garding the cleaning of walks leading
i to the various churches.

THE MOONSHINER'S DAUGHTER. ■
"The Moonshiner's Daughter" will
be the attraction at the Auditorium
on Wednesday evening, Jan. 81. From
the excellent satisfaction which the
play has been giving elswchere it
surely must not alone bo a thoroughly
enjoyable production but a positive
meritorious melodrama from every
standpoint. The play is a charming
love story set in an atmosphere of the
bills of Kentucky and Tennessee. It
deals with the lives of those sturdy
specimens of mankind for whom the ,
government has officers constantly on
t)w lookout, the moonshiners. There
is a very realistic encounter between
moonshiner:-and revenue men in which
the latter try to destroy the still and
capture the owners. The mysterious
execution of the moonshiners, the
lynching of Negro Sam are all vividly
and Btartlingly portrayed. The com
edy element fairly bubbles over with
merrimeni of the good, wholesome
