SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1906
I hereby certify that on the even
ing and night of March the 9th,
IfMW, I was beaten out of $55 in a \ j
gambling game which was played
in Dan Hums' saloon in Pullman,
Washington. •*• » * j Wlin t j
the Mayor and Council to imme
diately investigate this matter and
put all gambling dives out of busi
ness in Pullman. lam ready to
tell what I know about this place
and one other in Pullman. I have
already told the night and day mar- <
shals and one Councilman but they
have done nothing. I now call good
Citizens to aid me in bidding this
town of the gambling curse. J
J. B. HICKS. ! I
The statement made by J. B. Hicks
concerning the loss of a sum of money
in a gambling game in this citjy comes
more as a verification of well grounded
rumors that have existed for months
than as a sensation. Upon the strength
of this statement, and the further con
clusive evidence that can now be ob
tained, the people of Pullman demand
a searching investigation, and the
prompt and sufficient punishment of
all violators of the law. No white
washing of the affair will suffice; the
notification to law breaking establish
ments that they must cease being had
is not going to hush the matter. It
should not be necessary to have to no
tify people to obey laws they are al
ready under bond to obey. They had
sufficient notification when license to
conduct business under certain restrict
ions was granted. The right to violate
moral or other laws was not purchased
with the payment of the license mon
ey. The fact that Councilman Car
penter could not get a second to his
motion to set a time for an investiga
tion does not speak well for officials
who are under oath to uphold the laws
of the municipality. They should
have been the first to demand the in
There is no blot upon modern civili
zation today more awful in its conse
quences than the gambling curse. It
is depriving homes of the very neces
sities of life, and has already driven
men to the graves of the suicide.
Will the council rid Pullman of this
curse now that opportunity has pre
sented itself, or must the town contin
ue with a mill stone around its neck?
Some time in the near future a date
will be set for a general cleaning up
of the city, and in this movement the
co-operation of every citizen is
nrged. "The City Beautiful" is a
catch phrase which has become current
in connection with tho wMq spread
movement for improvement and en
couraging immigration to the West.
This phrase expresses in a compact
form the ideal of a residence towr
which may be attained in many differ
ent ways, among which few are mon
important than clean Erects, alleys,
back yards and vacant lots. Muel
may be done by concerted action
hence the value of establishing i
"cleaning day." On the date se
every citizen should lend a little of hi
enthusiasm mixed with a good propor
tion of muscular exertion. Men hay
ing teams can do especially valien
service in hauling away rubbish. N
one, however, need hold back for thi
<jne day, for each householder ca
make the early days of spring his ow

"We want an independent paper.
We want an editor who is not afraid

this-if you pitch in and abuse some

with a ten foot pole and he is up and
coming. Ridicule that man's religion
or his political views, but don't touch

MONEY ON DEPOSIT IS NOT
Attorney General Atkinson recently
rendered an opinion on the question of
assessment of credits, and on the col-j
n of personal property taxes on
property tliai had changed hands after
March 1. The opinion was given in
response to ;i request from the prose
cuting attorney of Whitman county,
who wrote as follows :
"I would like your opinion with
reference to a matter contained in
tecton 3 of the revenue laws of the ;
3tate enacted in M>7. The direct
question I wish to ask is, whether in
your opinion money on deposit is a
i-redit, and if a credit, is subject to be
ntfset by debts? (See laws '97, page
"I also wish to ask a question with
reference to section 3, chapter 59,
laws of 1908, page 74. Where a party
sells personal property after March
Ist, is it the duty of the county
treasurer to exhaust his remedy in
collecting the tax upon the property
first, or upon the person to whom as
sessed? There seems to be a great
difference of opinion among the prose
cuting attorneys on these two ques
Following is the reply and ruling
of the attorney general:
'' In reply to your first question as
to whether money on deposit is a
credit, in accordance with section ::.
of the revenue laws enacted in 1897, I
have to advise you that our supreme
court has held that money on deposit
subject to withdrawal is not a credit,
and my opinion is that it is not a
"In reply to the next question,
with reference to section 3, chapter
59, laws of 1903, I will say that where
a party sells personal property after
the first day of March, it is my opin
ion that under the law as it exists and
under the best policy, the treasurer
should use his best judgment in col
lecting the tax upon said property.
The assessment against property is in
rem rather than personal, but the tax
is a lien against real property of the
person against whom assessed, and
collection could be made on other per
sonal property found. There might
be occasions in which it would be en
tirely impracticable for him to try to
collect taxes against certain specific
personal property so sold. For in
stance if horses were sold in the state
of Washintgon and taken to the state
of Oregon, it would be difficult for
him to follow such property. lam
of the opinion that, as a general prop
osition, he should attempt to exhaust
his remedy rather upon the person to
whom assessed, than to lay down the
specific rule that he should try to ex
haust his remedy in collecting the tax
upon the property first."
WHAT IS HER AGE?
Sometimes it is a standing joke,
asserts an exchange, that certain girls
I will not. tell their ages. If you woulc
discover their little secret, apply th«
following formula, allowing the gir
whose age you wish to discover to d<
the figuring. Tell her you do not wist
i lo look upon the paper, and that aftei
has done as you r^ue.st her sh«
may destroy the figures without you
'.ing at them; but that you wi'
wager to tell her age, also the moni!
which she was born. Tell her fa
c put down in figures the number of th<
i:th iii which she was born; multipi;
b it by 2, then add 5 and multiply th
I amount by 50; then add her own ag
n and subtract 3C5; then add 115; thei
c ask her to please give you the amoun
1 ; she has left. This she will unwiuir-R
Ily do, and you will tell her that th
last two figures to the right represent
her age and the others the number of
the month in which she was bom. For
example, if the amount is 719 she is 19
years old and was born in July, the
seventh month. If this formula is
carried out according to directions
there can be no mistake.

Another increase in dividend has
been made by the Northwestern Mu
tual Fire Association in its dwelling
department. This now makes its
policy holders a saving of 40 per cent.
Northwestern policy holders are not
complaining of high insurance rates,
as they get the profits. This not
only keeping the insurance premiums
in the state, but the profits are going
where they rightly belong, namely, to
the property owners who pay the pre
mium^. The company now has over
$13,000,000 of insurance in the State
of Washington, which is $5,000,000
more than is carried by any other com
pany. • *
