No one need fear that any di mage
will come to Pullman oi hei int. .
through the present agitatioi
gambling and for the puniahmi •
law breakers. The eyes of the state
are upon this city, and if the cleaning
up and renovating process is sufficiently
Complete, the town will reap rich re
turns. The advantages of th<
arc well known, and by reducing to a
minimum such disadvante may
have existed, the place will grow as
The farmers report the grain in this
region uninjured by the recent cold
snap, and now. under the influence of
the warming rays of the sun, and the
gentle spring time showers, it is com
mencing to grow and give promise of
another one of those crops that make
this the "famous Palouse country."
Fruit was undoubtedly considerably
injured, just how much can not yet be
told, but the damage to early apples,
cherries and plums, even on the high
lands, ia rprohably serious. The in
jury to late varieties of apples, Mid to
orchards that were in more sheltered
or backward locations, will be less.
Not a great amount of credit is due
the council at this stage of the game
for bringing forth an ordinance to keep
boys out of pool rooms. It is not
brought forth in pood faith. Last
fall, when the then city marshal, with
a commendable desire to enforce the
law, reported to a city officer that
complaint was made to him that boys
under the legal age were allowed in a
pool room, he was instructed that "if
there are not enough hoys in the place,
go out and run some more in." How
ever, the proposed law is a most ex
cellent one, and will be passed and en
forced there's no question about the
enforcement of these laws in Pullman
Pullman does not yet fully appreciate
what a blessing she has in the artes
ian wells. With water, the purest
and best in the world, and sufficient in
quantity for million**,' she is in a!) en
viable position while many of her
neighbors are put to big expense to ob
tain enough for their present needs,
and that of a most questionable purity.
That's one thing that the intending lo
cate* in the west should look out for.
Unless a town has a water supply
equivalent to present and future de
mands, it is not a good place in which
to make a home. The great influence
for the good health of the people of
this city is found in the artesian wat
er. If you would he healthy and
happy, come to Pullman.
It is clear that evidence that is
sufficient for a county prosecuting at
torney to have warrants issued upon in
sufficient for a city council to in
gate upon. Saloon licenses have been
revoked in Pullman before now for
violations of law and of common de
cency no more glaring than th<
now at issue, and no city ofHcia
afford to have it appear that he i^ do
ing lea* than his full and sworn duty.
The demand is ii-ade, not by on
two, but by ninety pet cent of the
•people of Pullman, that the ln>
gation against the Burns saloon bo
prompt and rigid, and that if the prob
able truth of the charge ia established,
that the lie • revoked and the
cond forfeited. The refusal of the
pouncil to i- te leaves ground
for the e'iary^ that is . penly made
jhat it dare n an 1 that
?ity officialn, by act and by inaction,
lave been party to infractions of the
Bty's lawn. Whatever the out
if the case in the superior court, it
can have no bearing upon the matter
before the council. The council is
supreme In regard to the issuance of
licenses, and the same power that
granted the license can take it away
if just cau?o ii shown. One of the
worst features of the itire proceed
ing is that the city attorney, a man
whose worn duty it is to protect the
interests of the city in legal actions,
should appear in the superior court to
protect a man who has been charged
with infringement of the city laws.
If Mr. Kimball had proper regaw for
the honor of the position he occupies
through luffrance of the people, he
would not have placed himself in a
situation so open to public censure.
810 ATHLETIC MEET IN" MAY.
c college authorities have begun
preparations for another big field meet

made also to run a special train from
Walla Walla. Last year Spokane
was tli'' winner hut Lewiston and
Walla Walla were close seconds, and
it is hoped that this fact will bring a
crowd of rooters from Walla Walla
sufficient to justify a special train.
Friday and Saturday, May Hand 12,
the clans will gather in the hope of
carrying away a share of the numerous
medals offered by the college. Each
high school ia entitled to one repre
sentative in the oratorical contest, in

al for the best athlete, the total mak
ing over thirty medals.
A silver cup and an immense \V. S.
C. pennant will lie awarded to the
school taking the most events.
Pullman's resources will be taxed
to care for the thousand or more vis
itors who will (lock here for this big
event. An effort will be mad. 1 to care
for the lady visitors in the homes of
the city. A large percentage of the
visitors will tie investigating the de
sirability of Pullman as a residence

mate advertising will he numerous.
