FIRE AT ALBION
CAUSES BIG LOSS
Large Elevator and Warehouse De
stroyed by Fire Sunday Morning.
Town Saved by Heroic
A disastrous fire, supposed to have.
been of incendiary origin occurred at
Albion early Sunday morning. The
huge elevator of the Pacific Coast
Elevator Company, which has stood
for nearly -•"> years, was discovered
to be in flames and a general alarm
to town ami country people was
sounded and then, was _ general re
sponse. A bucket brigade was formed
and a heroic fight made to save the
town and near-by warehouses. For
tunately no wind was blowing and to
this fact is probably due the. saving
of the town, for the tall elevator,
dry as tinder, burned like oil and
had there been a strong wind the
burning shingles and firebrands
might have ignited the town in many
The large warehouse of the same
company standing on the south side
of the track was also destroyed.
The flames leaped the tracks to the
warehouse and it was soon found to
be doomed. All efforts were de
voted to saving the farmers' ware
house to the west of the Potlatch
Lumber company's coal bunkers to
the east of the elevator. These ef
forts were successful.
The elevator contained a little
wheat and the warehouse contained
600 sacks of potatoes, which were
destroyed. The loss is estimated at
$15,000, fully covered by insurance.
Both buildings will be replaced In
time for the fall crop. C. W. Frazier
of Colfax, general manager in this
district for the Pacific Coast Ele
vator company, visited Albion Mon
day and arranged to rebuild the
warehouses, and work is expected to
Albion has had a number of mys
terious fires, all starting about mid
night in buildings in which there
had been no fire and there is a strong
suspicions of incendiarism. De
tectives are working on the case.

Kirns iii Slugfest at Moscow— .
Home Runs by Pullman
The Pullman Boosters piled up 20
scores against the Moscow aggrega
tion in the Idaho town last Sunday
and scored an easy victory. Every
member of the Pullman team wore
his batting clothe to Moscow and
batting averages soared as a result
of the slugfesl. Garlock started the
fun by hitting the first ball pitched
by .spray, Moscow » so-called phc
norn, for a home run, The ball
cleared the right field fence and
landed somewhere between Moscow
and Pullman. Aspray then tightened
up .and allowed no more runs that
in In- second Pullman scored .two
more on singles by Moeser and Ken
nedy, aided by a couple of errors and
some classy base running, but drew
blanks iii both the third and fourth
frames, in the fifth the slugging be-'
gan in earnest and six runs were
chalked up to Pullman's credit. Two
more counted in the sixth and in the
seventh nine Boosters crossed tin
plate. In this inning 14 men faced
the Moscow pitcher and eight hits

Foran getting a healthy home run to
deep center field and Kennedy an

Willi the exception of the second
inning, when several costly errors
and one measly single allowed three
runs. Moss started the game for

RELY ON PHOTOS
TO SETTLE CONTEST
Classification of the County May lie
Determined by Cheeking With
A brilliant idea conceived by Pros
ecuting Attorney Paul Pattison is
likely to result in the settlement of
the vexed question of the classifica
tion of Whitman county without an
expensive lawsuit.. He suggested that
photographic copies of the federal
census returns by precincts be se
cured from Washington and checked,
with the school census, the polling
lists, the personal tax roll and the
affidavits of persons who claimed
that they were not enumerated in the
federal census. The commissioners
adopted the idea and the photographs
have been secured at a cost of $60.
In explaining his .plan Air. Pattison
"I believe that this matter can be
settled with light, expense. Two men
can be employed at $2.50 to $;. a day
to check these lists with the personal
tax list, the school census, the polling
list and the affidavits already submit
ted and if we find that these people
who have- sworn that they were not
enumerated were missed by the enu
merator we have some evidence on
which to base our suit. If we find
that these people were enumerated
the best thing the commissioners can
do is to admit they were mistaken
and let the matter drop. I believe
that we can get a close check on the
situation in this way at an expense of
not to exceed $250 and may save liti
gation that may cost $10,000 to $20,
--000. The work of checking the list
with the other lists mentioned will
probably be done by the county treas
urer anil tin- county assessor, who
have a number of expert bookkeepers
and people capable of doing the work
in heir employ."
'On Wednesday W. .v. Duncan, the
county treasurer, and George Walter,
county assessor, checked over a few
of the affidavits with the list of
name's furnished by the federal cen
sus bureau for tie. purpose "i ascer
taining if these people who claimed
to have bee. missed 'were right in
; heir contention.
The' check was only a partial one,
covering 52 names of Maiden people,
