FIRST CONTEST WILL BE BE
TWEEN WHITMAN AND
The Trustees Consider the Reports of
the Treasurer —A Pillow
The approaching debate with the
University of Oregon has drawn at
tention towards that form of inter-col
legiate contest at Whitman. This will
be held in Eugene on the 16th of Jan
uary. The University of Oregon will
submit the question this year, and it
is expected to arrive by telegraph to
night. Whitman has two weeks to
make her choice of the side she will
defend and then both colleges will get
down to work. Whitman will pick out
a team of three men to oppose the
Webfooters by means of a tryout un
der what is called the briefing system.
This tryout will be held some time
near the first of next month and will
be open to members of any literary
society in the college boys or girls.
About the first of February will be
held the regular debate between the
Athenaeum and the Phrenakosmlan
Literary societies. Each society has
appointed a representative to act for
it in making arangements for this con
test. The Athenaeum and Phrena
kosmian are represented by Baldwin
and C. A. Palmer, respectively.
Many of the boys have signified
their intention of competing for foren
sic honors in the coming tryout. Hez
Brown, Whitman's greatest debater, is
practically certain of a place on the
team, while Walle Merritt Walter
Eeils, R. X. "Wolfe. Gilbert Johnston,
Gaius Greenslade, Ridgway Oillis and
Rollin Dodd are among those who have
announced their intention of compet
ing for the remaining two places on
the team. The Oregon team will prob
ably also handle one of the debates
with Idaho of Pullman.
Amonr the Classes.
An examination in logic will be

A most interesting series of experi
ments is being conducted in the phy
sics department by Professor B. H.
Brown. This involves nothing less
than weighing the earth. The appar
atus is very delicate consisting of two
lead balls suspenderi by n fi" wire.
It is called a torsion pendulum. The
attraction of two large iron globes for
these small lead spheres is carefully
measured for each moment and then
the attraction of the earth for the
pendulum and the weight of the earth
calculated from the proportion.
A Pillow Sale.
The Y. M. C. A. girls have held many
mysterious "bees"' of late for the pur
pose of making sofa pillows and Whit
man banners to sell. The sale will
be held tonight at S o'clock in the
Conseravtory building. Besides dainty
pillows and pretty banners, candy will
be sold and a general good time had.
The proceeds will be applied to the
purposes of the association.
At the last regular meeting of the
executive committee of the trustees
the annual reports of the treasurer
and assistant treasurer were carefully
considered and the usual routine busi
ness transacted. The meeting was
held in Dr. Blalock's office.
The second team expects to have a
game with the Walla Walla high
school tomorrow afternoon. Captain
Ryan Is confident that Whitman will
easily come out victorious.

discovery was responsible for Miss
Waldron's attempt to end her life,
though it is certain her attachement
for the Pickerell woman is what led up
to her effort at self destruction.
Miss Waldron was found in Denny
Park shortly after 10 o'clock at night
by W. J. Clark, of 604 Battery street.
Clark was walking in the vicinity of
the park, when he was attracted by
moans coming from a secluded spot
about twenty yards removed from Dex
ter avenue. He went in search of the
person from whom the sound came
and found Miss Waldron lying
stretched on the green grass in a pool
of blood. A 3L'-ealiber revolver, par
tially wrapped in a silk handkerchief,
lay alongside the young woman, who
was in a semi-conscious condition
from shock and loss of blood.
Clark immediately telephoned the
police station and the ambulance was 1
dispatched to the park. Miss Waldron!
was placed in the vehicle and remov- j
ed to the Wayside Mission hospital. 1
She refused absolutely to give the j
ambulance attaches her name or ad-'
dross and for more than an hour after j
her arrival at the hospital persisted I
in concealing her identity. Finally,;
by dint of much persuasion. Dr. John
son prevailed upon her to give her
name and address. After doing so
she immediately requested that Harry
Livingstone, who she said resided at |
2?>12 First avenue, be communicated!
with. The address is that of the Pick
erell woman and the name her alias.
Dr. Johnson kept Miss Waldron on'
the operating table for almost an Hour |
in a diligent and most painstaking i
search for the bullet, which entered
her body about two inches above the;
heart and three inches to the left of,
the breast bone. The physician probed '
for the bullet in all directions, but j
could not trace its course beyond
the outer surface of the upper ribs,
and it finally became necessary to
abandon the search for the time. The
patient's heart action was very weak.,
and some slight indication of inter
nal hemorrhage was manifesting it
self when she was removed from the
operating table and placed in bed. Dr.
Johnson is of the opinion that the
chances for her recovery are exceed
ingly slight. The bullet evidently pen
etrated the cavity of the chest and it
is thought to have lodged danger- j
ously near, if it did not enter, some!
Pearl Waldron is the daughter of 1
Imogen Waldron, the widow of Jayj
Waldron. She is a handsome brunette
agen 22 years and was stylishly dress
ed. The police say that the young
woman has, during the past year, i
been associating with a set of fast
young girls in the north end and wasj
on one or two occasions arrested for
frequenting saloons. Her mother is
a respectable woman and Miss Wal
dron bears many traces of refinement i
in her features. I

North Yakima .Citizens .Say .State
Board Has Done City Harm.
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash.. Nor. «.—
The state board ot health has done
this city an inestimable amount of
damage by its report that an epidemic
of typhoid fever exists here. There
never has been an epidemic here, the
state board of health to the contrary
notwithstanding. During the month
of October the physicians made re
ports to the county health officer of
21 cases of typhoid. Many of these
have been turned off and at the pres
ent time there are not a dozen cases
of all kinds of fever. This compares
well wtih the rest of the state.
The people of North Yakima think
the state board of health did some
thing that was unnecessary.
