Council Takes Steps to Do
Away With Poundmaster
MOUNTED POLICEMAN TO DO WORK
Two Ordinances Relative to the Mat
ter Introduced at a Special
Meeting Last Night.
As had been hinted for several days,
the city council met in special ses
sion last night and took the first steps
toward getting that body out of the
muddle into which they had become
entangled over the poundmaster mat
ter. All the members of the council
were present except Councilmen Mar
tin and Glasford.
Two ordinances were introduced,
both being read the first time, passed
to their second reading, then placed
on the calendar to be called up for
final action when all the members are
The first ordinance provides for the
repeal of the ordinance creating the
office of poundmaster and defining his
duties. The second one was an ordi
nance providing for a mounted police
man, whose duties, in addition to those
of a peace officer, will be to perform
the work now being done by the
poundmaster, and providing further
that the office may be abolished at the
will of the council.
Previous to the reading of the ordi
nances Councilman McLean asked to
be excused for a few minutes, which
was granted by the mayor. When the
n>ll was called on the two ordinances
Councilmen Smith, McKean and Brew
er voted for them and Councilman
Hover in the negative.
The council by a unanimous vote
decided that the plans and specifica
tions for the Main street bridge as
prepared by the city engineer should
be adhered to. This action was
brought by the report that one mem
ber of the street committee, had as
sumed the authority, without consult
ing the other members of the commit
tee, of making several changes in the
original specifications. The changes,
they claimed, would necessitate the
expenditure of more money than the
original plan called for.

ENDORSE THE PLAN
Business Men Favor Dona

OF CITY'S PROPtRTY FOR HOME
Council Will Consider Plan at a Spe
cial Meeting Monday Morning.
The preliminary steps toward secur
ing the location of the Stubblefield
home in Walla Walla was taken at
the special meeting of the city council
last night, when a resolution was in
troduced by Councilman Smith pro
viding for the donation to the trustees
of the proposed home a portion of the
city's land near the old race track.
The resolution was not adopted, how
ever, but was made a special order for
consideration at a meeting of the
council to be held Monday morning at
In connection with the action taken
by the council a Statesman represen
tative today interviewed a large num
ber of the business men of the city re
garding their views in the premises.
That they are heartily in favor of the
proposition is evidenced by the fol
lowing opinions given:
Ex-Mayor G. W. Babeock—Walla
Walla should never let the opportunity
pass to secure the Stubblefield home
and as the ground referred to is at
present put to no use I believe it the
proper action for the council to donate
say 10 or 15 acres to the trustees. It
would not only make the home possi
ble, but would open up a nice subur
ban residence district.
John G. Munfinga—Leave the mer
cenary part of the consideration out
and merely consider that Walla Walla
should make provision for caring for
the indigent widows and orphans that
every community and state have. The
Odd Fellows' home is an excellent ex
ample of what the Stubblefield home
would be to the city. It is just such
institutions that is helping far more
than people imagine in building up the
city. The council should donate the
land in question if there is no legal
Fred W. Kaser, secretary of the
Davis-Kaser company—Walla Walla
should make every effort to secure
the home. If the council can legally
give the land in question it would
quickly solve the problem and it would
be satisfactory, I believe, to the ma
jority of the citizens of Walla Walla.
George Kellough—lt not only aids
in the upbuilding of Walla Walla but
it places the city before the outside
world in a light that must appeal to
every person interested in advanced
civilization —caring for our unfortu
nates. Personally I would endorse
the council's action in donating the
land referred to.
Thomas R. Eastman, manager of
the Schwabacher company-—lf there is
no legal obstacle I would heartily fa
vor the council donating the 10 or 15
acres contemplated. Walla Walla
should make every effort to secure the
home and this facilitates the matter
H. A. Gardner, vice president
Schwabacher company—Every institu
tion of the kind is a direct benefit to
the city and aids in its upbuilding not
to say of the humane act iti caring
for our poor and indigent. If the
council can legally make the donation
the matter is solved.
George Evans —The city can give 20
acres just as easily as it can 10. The
land in question is put to no immedi
ate use as it stands and it would re
sult in a nice tract of suburban prop
erty being opened up. I am heartily
in favor of the council making the do
M. U. Esderts and Edward Claus
sen. of the Esderts stores, both said
they favored the plan advanced by the
council. The city should make every
effort to secure the home.
Joseph Merchant—lf Walla Walla
secures the home by subscription there
is no likelihood of it coming here.
The feasible plan seems to be the one
considered for the city to donate the
land under discussion.
A. B. Olsen —It is proper and right
that the council should donate 10 or'
15 acres of its land for the purpose.
Walla Walla should never let the home
pass to some other town.
L,. L. Tallman —It is not good busi
ness judgment to even consider the
letting of any other town besides Wal
la Walla secure the Stubblefield home.
The council is taking the proper
course and I for one would endorse
their action in donating the 10 acres
or even 15 if necessary.
J. G. Paine —Give the trustees a
strip off the city park if necessary.
The home should come to Walla Walla
and a few thousand dollars should not
stand in the way.
J. H. Stockwell —If the city's donating
of the 10 acres will be any Induce
ment for securing the Stubblefield
THE OLD RELIABLE
THERE tS NO SUBSTITUTE
home the city council should set aside
J. C. Hockett—The city should not
let the opportunity pass to secure the
home and it would be right and proper
for the council to make the donation
W. P. Hooper, vice president of the
Commercial Club and manager of the
Motter-Wheeler store —The provisions
of the Stubblefield will providing for
a home should be carried out to the
letter that Walla Walla may secure
the proposed home. The matter of the
city donating 10 acres was discussed
at the beginning and is probably the
only feasible plan to reach a satisfac
tory settlement. By all means Walla
Walla should secure the horn*' and the
council will have the support of the
majority of property owners and bus
iness men in making the donation.
Victor Hunziker, of the firm of T.ud
wigs & Hunziker —If the donating of
10 or 15 acres will not interfere with
the proposed extension of the water
system or retirement of the present
water bonds, I would favor the coun
cil's plan of securing the Stubblefield
home. The city by all means should
secure the. home.

Herbert Jones, local manager for the
Pacific Coast Elevator company was
of the opinion that if the land is
worth $506 to the trustees it w r as worth
that much to the city and should be
sold to redeem city bonds or help pay
for the installation of a better fire
system of water works.
