THROWN OUT OF COURT
police Judge Porter Refuses to Pass
on Constitutionality of City
Declaring himself to be not quail l
tied to pass accurately on the con

1 police Judge William M. Porter Tues- i
day dismissed the case of the City
of Pullman versus G. L. Chamber
lain in which the city charged thai I
Chamberlain had violated the provi
sions of a new city garbage ordin
ance. The new measure provides
that no person can legally dispose of
garbage as a comrrlercial enterprise J
■who is not licensed by the city and
the license fee is set at $300 an
nually. Two complaints were filed
against Mr. Chamberlain, one charg
ing him with hauling garbage for
hire without a license and the other
charging him with violating the city
ordinance in hauling garbage in open
Mr. Chamberlain retained M. S.
Jamar as counsel and Attorney .la- 1
mar filed a demurrer to the com
plaints, arguing that the ordinance
is unconstitutional. Both Mr. .Ja
mar and D. C. Dow, attorney for the
city, filed citations on the demurrer.
Police Judge Porter took the case
under advisement for several days,
then dismissed the action. The city |
council will hold a special meeting
Monday evening to consider the gar

Attorney .lamar insists that the
ordinance is discriminatory and in-!
tended to limit the field of garbage I
haulers to a single man. The niea: l

an official city garbage supervisor, j
with a salary of $300 per year, and j
places the annual license fee at the ,

PULLMAN, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, MAI
An eledion will be held at the High
School building, tomorrow afternoon, Satur
day, May 6th, between the hours of 1 and
6:30, to determine whether or not a special
levy of 7 mills shall be authorized to main
tain the local schools. The opponents
of the levy will vote without any urging.
Unless those who favor the levy go to the
polls, it will be defeated and they will have
no one to blame but themselves.
The members of the school board have
prepared the following Statement to show
the necessity for the levy:
A special school election is called for .May 6th, to vote on the
question of authorizing n special levy of seven mills for school
The school board can levj 10 nulls without a vote <»l the
people, and the seven mills asked for is in addition to the 10
The assessed valuation of the distrid is aboul $1,580,000.
With ;i ID-mill levy, the income from all Bourcea would be
I al tax (10 mills) $15,800.00
Prom slate tax (estimated) 18,775.00
From county tax (estimated! 8,860.00
Prom other sources (estimated! 3,700.00
The fixed charges for operating the schools, such ,-is teachers'
salaries, light, fuel, janitors, interest on warrants, paving tax,
etc., are $51,325.
It therefore requires a special levy of four mills to meet the
fixed charges and it will require the remaining three mills to
cover the uecded repairs on buildings to make them fit for
