SCHOOL BONDS VOTED DOWN AT PESHASTIN PESHASTIN, June 12. —The elec tion held Monday at the school hous formerly that of district 15. to de cide whether or not bonds should be issued in the sum of three thousn. d and flv e hundred dollars, for th e pur pose of purchasing a site and erect ing a school house on the site chosen at the special election for the pur pose of determining the school house site, were voted down by a majority of nearly two to one. The long drawn out proceedings through which the matter of the consolidation of districts 15, 34 and 35 have passed are at an end. For two successive years the question has ''been brought to the attention of the residents of the three \ districts, mainly through the efforts of a few in district 16. The former attempt at consolidation ended in disagreement at their first meeting. This year however the attempt was carried on until the time of bond ing the districts was talked of. Before April 11 of this year a petition, circulated by those few in district 15, was filed in the office of County School Superintendent Riste, praying for a hearing on the matter of consolidation. The hearing was granted aud on the above date a fair hearing was held. The superintendent had vot.s tak en on consolidation, those who favor ed it and those who did not. The votes no doubt were in favor of the proposed plan, for in a few days the different boards of 15, 34 and 3T> were notified of his decision. At this same hearing proposed school house sites were ashed for. The sites proposed were as follows: Site No, 1. anywhere on section line north of Wenatchee river bridge to the railroad track, in district 34. Site No. 2. the site then used by district 15. Site No. 3. being nearly the same as that of No. t. The election called May l. for de ciding which site was to be used, resulted in the vote of 40 to 52 in favor of site No. 1. District 34 is north of the We- natchee, while 15 being in a souther- ly direction. The river seemed to be the bone of contention. Although 15 has more scholars than 34. yet 34 has $60,000 worth of taxable prop erty (because of the railroad) as compared with $38,000 taxable property in district 15. District 15 is something like $600 in debt and a 6 months' school, while district 34 has bo debt an a 9 months' school. District 34 did not care to consoli date unless the school house for the three districts combined was left in their district. District wented to consolidate, wanted the school house in district 15, wanted the money that 34 had control of, and yet were not of the nature to concede one point for it. The majority of votes usually come from district 15, and would have succeeded in receiving the ma jority vote of site No. 2 at the elec tion of May 10, had not the voters of 35 assisted in defeating 15. Had 15 succeeded in getting site No. 2, then they would hare done all in their power to have the bonds voted for instead of against, such as they did vote. Voters from 34 did not turn out, knowing the attitude of their across the river neighbors, and as the vote went against the issuance of bonds the new district, No. 57, will be a thing of the past and each district will be the same as it was before the proposed plan was agitat ed. The judges of Monday's election election were Mr. Davis, Otis, and Green. After the election, the directors of district 57 finished up the busi ness. C. H. Allen was in Wenatchee Monday on business. Mrs. J. Griffith was quite ill the past week. The De Mose family, a traveling troupe, gave a concert at the school house in district 15 Tuesday evening. Died of Spinal .Menengitis.

The re mains will be shipped to the old Lang home at Everett for burial on the noon train today. Mr. Lang is bookeeper for the Col umbia River Lumber Company at it 3 Skyline mill up in the tiTlls.

Already the # citizens of Pullman are preparing to take care of the increase in student body, which is promised by the in crease of efficiency in the College.

College Park Ad dition, as the new building area is called, has been cut up into one hun dred and forty lots, the sales of which have amounted to nearly ten thousand dollars within the last fort night. It is estimated that fifty new houses will b e needed to take care of the increase in the student body, which will be made possible by the authorized expenditure of $322,000. A BAD ACTOR FLIES THE COOP Takes Money and Property of the Brandon Company and Dis appears Over tbe Cascades. An actor man has flown the coop. He took his clothes—and went. The Brandon Company is out a trunk, some cash, and a "prop" gun which the erstwhile Hebrew Com edian saw fit to annex prior to his flight. According to police inteUigencek Mr. Brandon dispatched one of his troupe, M. E. Lowenworth, to Leav enworth to bill the town for the ap pearance of the Brandon Players on Sunday night. Expense money was advanced to Lowenworth, and he left on the west-bound, ostensibly for Leavenworth, but he kept on going. The Seattle police have b=en not ified and Lowenworth will probably be returned here for trial, charged with absconding with his employers' money. The actors have their troubles. Lowenworth is the man who sang the Home Made to Order song at th e theater on Monday night, bring ing consternation to various unfort unate persons in the audience. "In Missouri" Tonight. The Brandon Players tonight will produce that old time favorite "In Missouri," the melodrama made fam ous by that veteran actor, Nat Good win. "In Missouri" abounds in human interest, audible heart throbs and stirring situations. It is full of love thrills and eventful events, and as staged by the full force of the Bran don players should attract r. full house. Last night's vaudeville bill made a hit with a small audience. Victor Gillard's recital of "Lasca," Frank Desprey's famous Texas poem, was easily the best number on the pro gram. Pulling 'Em Down last. All over town wooden awnings are coming down.
