WALLULA MAY GET BRIDGE .■MYSTERIOUS PARTY OF SURVEY ORS HAS BEEN WORKING ON COLUMBIA. Wallula, Wash., Jan. 6—The Wallula Gateway this week says: For the past two weeks a party of surveyors have been taking soundings and making surveys of the Columbia river at va rious points between the Eddy and the gateway. They are very mum, declin ing to give out any information what ever, except to say that solid rock has been encountered at no greater depth than 14 feet. They are evidently mak ing a location for a railroad bridge.

STUDENTS' 6IVE REASONS WHY THEY LEFT PACIFIC UNI VERSITY AND CAME TO WHIT MAN COLLEGE, Decided to Com e to Walla Walla Be fore They Ever Received Line From Representative. WHITMAN COLLEGE, Walla Wal la, Jan. 5, 1905.—Several articles ap pearing in the northwest reflecting upon our character as athletes have been called to our notice recently and we think the public ought to know the true reason why we left Pacific uni versity and why we came to Whitman. The facts of the whole matter are these. All three of us went to Paci fic a year ago last September. We were attracted there because we pre ferred a denominational school, be cause we liked the course of study PROF. O. S. MATTHEWS. The Mental, Electric and Magnetic Healer.

THE EVENING STATESMAN, WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. they offered, and because it was warmly endorsed by our friends. We are all of us interested in athletics and the success of student activities of all kinds in a school. We found that these things were woefully ne glected at the university mainly be cause of lack of encouragement on behalf of the faculty. The fact that during an intercollegiate football game prominent members of the faculty calmly engaged in target shooting with bow and arrow in another part of the college campus will show how much interest they took in our success. Many similar cases disgusted us with the institution. The student body became so small that there seemed no hope of success in student affairs or athletics. We. like a lot of other stu dents, decided not to return. We began at once looking around for another institution. We were first attracted to Whitman by the account of that institution which Pacific's de bating team gave us. The team had been up to Walla Walla to debate. The fact that there was a large dormitory at Whitman and a fine new gymnasium also attracted us. Philbrook worked in the harvest ffeld this summer and be came more than ever impressed with the fact that Wnitman was the school for him. We had all decided to go to the same institution, and so when Philbrook said it was Whitman for him, it was Whitman for us all. We want it distinctly understood that we had fully decided to come to Wnitman before we ever got a sin gle line from any representative ot Whitman and that the Whitman au thorities fully understood that we were not going back to Pacific under any circumstances when they wrote us. We also wish to state that we were not offered any inducements to come to Whitman college to partake in ath letics. On the contrary, we were plainly told not to come if that was our main object. We wish further to say that we have found a place which is entirely satisfactory to us and that we intend to remain here throughout our college career. GEO. PHILBROOK, P. J. SPAGLE, RALPH C. DIMICK. PATRICK BOBS UP ONCE MORE DENVER TRADES ASSEMBLY IS AFTER LABOR AGITATOR SCULLIN'S SCALP NOW. Patrick Scullin, the labor agitator, who was in Walla Walla several months ago and failed to gut much en couragement in several plans that he advocated at a public meeting held un der his auspices, is alleged to be work ing another graft. From San Francisco comes news that the labor council of that city has re ceived a letter from Frank Morrison, secretary of the American Federation of Labor, advising the council that one P. H. Scullin, representing the Na tional Peace association, has collected money from Chinese through the In dorsement of the San Francisco Six Companies, on assurance that the unions will cease their opposition to Chinese cheap labor, and warns all unions and central labor bodies against that method of graft and misrepresen tation. It further states that the Den ver Trades and Labor assembly is in possession of the full facts, and have adopted resolutions to send out the warning throughout the country. Is Full of Fight Now. FRANKLIN, Pa., Jan. 6.—There la much fighting In the talk of Major Charles Miller, who has been accused by Bob Fitzsimmons of having stolen the affections of his wife. The story from Scranton, Pa., that Fitz's mnaa ger, Freidman. had employed an attor ney to sue Miller for $100,000 damages started Miller to talking. He said in part: Til give that outfit all the fight it wants. Fitz and the rest of the outfit evidently need a little change and are looking for a good place to collect, but they have the wrong man. I'll fight them, and won't settle. More than that, I want them to make good the bluff about suit now. If they do not. I'll prosecute them on charges of con spiracy and attempted blackmail. It's about the worst and the cheapest at tempt at blackmail that I ever heard of. They all know I have not seen that woman but once in a year. It looks pretty phony that they will go to Scranton. Why not come to Franklin, where I live? I a mnot in Franklin, New York will do for the suit. I want this thing spread to the world." Licenses to Marry. PEXDLETOX, Jan. 6.—Marriage li censes were yesterday issued to George Lott of Walla Walla and Jes sie Patterson of Umatilla county: William M. Robinson and Lillian M. Perry of Umatilla county. EARLIN6 IS COMING WEST MILWAUKEE PRESIDENT DESIRE TO KEEP CLOSE TO THE RAIL ROAD BATTLE Northern Pacific to Have New Line Across the Cascades —Will Build Through Tieton. President E. J. Earling, of the Cin cinnati, Milwaukee & St. Paul, is now on his way west in company with H. R. Williams, president of the Pacific Railway, an allied corporation of the Milkaukee. This is the report that comes from Tacoma. The object of Mr. Earling's visit is not known, unless it be that he desires to give the railway situation in this state his close personal attention. The great interests now engaged in rail road building in the northwest are pre paring for a bitter contest. The Mil waukee will find itself assailed prac tically by the Hill interests, the Har riman lines are reaching out to the Sound from the south, the Canadian Pacific threatens on the north, while the Chicago & Northwestern or the Gould system or whatever the inter ests behind the North Coast, would parallel the Milwaukee's tracks across Washington. Naturally Mr. Earling does not wish to be outwitted in any fight that may ensue. May Want More Land. It is also rumored that the Milwau kee desires more terminal grounds in Tacoma and that Mr. Earling's trip is made in that connection. That may or may not be true. Before the owners pooled their interests to form a termi nal compnny, the Milwaukee is said to have applied for an additional i6t> acres, adjoining on the east tl}g present holdings on the Pnyaliup. This is the, same tract that is said to be sought by the T'nlon Pacific. It is also de clared that the Milwaukee is willing to bu y every foot of tide land between the Pupallup and Hylebos creek owned by the Mason-Ashton-Rose syndicate. In fact, it is rumored that application for it has already been made by the Mil waukee. Shorten the Line. A railroad engineer, whose name is not given, and who is said to have been engaged for som e time in railroad sur vey work in the Yakima valley, de tailed in an interview at Seattle, the the Northern Pacific project, and that when the road is completed the North ern Pacific will have nearly a straight line from North Yakima to Tacoma, through the Tieton pass. The engineer says the new route will be shorter by 27 miles than the pres ent line, and that it will have no curv ature greater than 14 degrees, and no grade in excess of one and two-tenths per cent; and that this last item alone will save the Northern Pacific $2730 daily in the operation of trains. In support of the statement that the Yakima line is a Northern Pacific enterprise, it is stated that surveyors were sent out from Northern Pacific headquarters at Tacoma, and that all the survey parties were outfitted from the Northern Pacific engineering de partment. IN THE LONG AGO From Wallula Gateway. W. A. Kinney came to Old Wallula in 1859, and has resided in this vicini ty ever since. Uncle John Lindley has resided here for 22 years. For five years he was county assessor. Major Rees was editor of the first newspaper published in Wallula. He died a few years ago. Mrs. Reese re sides at Walla Walla. G. D. Goodwin and family came to Wallula in 1862. He and his son, Frank, died in 1900. E. A. Linn, who came here In 1860, also died in 1900. Much of the timber used in construc tion work of the Northern Pacific from Pasco to Wallula was sawed at a mill erected by the railroad company below Old Wallula, near the gateway. The logs were floated down the Snake river. In the early 70's Dr. Baker* erected a sawmill at the eddy, a short distance above Old Wallula. Logs for it werf floated down the Yakima river to the Columbia. All the lumber and tim bers used in constructing the Baker Railroad were sawed here. Our townsman Amos Cummings was a commissioner of this county for 12 years, eight of which he was chair man of the board. During this time the court house and jail were built. He also served for 12 years in the capa city of postmaster at Old Wallula and later the new town. Preparing for Service in China.
