twenty-. Ye cents per month. Students Changes in North\*%t Conference Rules To consider any changes tna. "frhit pian college may want in the confer ence rules, there is a meeting of the students interested held in Billings hall this afternoon from 5:30 to 6.: 30. AJi who 'have changes to suggest will them at that time and the pre liminary discussion will be made in order to facilitate the work of the isex lated students, which body meets tomorrow morning after chapel, at 10:15.

Although hit harder by the rules than any institution in the conference, Whitman has followed the rules more closely and there has been no com plaint against her, save perhaps that of W. S. C., who brought charges agaist nearly every school in the northwest in an effort to vindicate herself. Whitman has played only eli gible men and deserves credit for the same. And for the reason that she has weathered the rules and their bad ef fects for one> year, it is improbable that she will do more at the conference than to make a stand for a more rigid enforcement of the rules now in ef fect. A governing board, in which the schools are all equally represented, is the favorite method of determining el igibility in the future. It is the plan of local collegians that such a board should have the decision, by majority i vote, of the questions that arise con j ce.rning individual athletes. The evi- I dence of both complainants and the j schools in question would be submit i ted to this board and their decision would be final and as nearly as pos sible impartial. Thi s plan is to be re- I commended at thei mass meeting this afternoon, and will be discussed at that time. at the prison, and it is said arrange ments will be made, in case the work is started, to go to a depth of 1000 feet or more if necessary. What an artesian well such as has been secured on the B'.alock farm will mean to the penitentiary can hardly be estimated in dollars and cents, though it has been said that $150,00d 1 would be placing too low a figure upon it. The preseint supply is derived from a well some 35 or 40 feet in diameter, but as a pumping sta tion is kept in almost constant opera tion, there is more or less epcpense at tached to it through the use of fuel, repair of machinery, etc. With a "gusher" such as has been secured on the Bialock farm, the' fu ture water supply of the prison would be soived, and iu addition what water is required for irrigating purposes would be available. It is believed that thci supply, if gained from an ar tesian source, would be fully as adapt able to domestic uses as is the present water, and the vegetation so irrigated would make much more rapid growth becausei of the high temperature of such a flow. enjoys the honors and emolmuents of the Columbia postoffice on the appoint ment of the president.

SNOWFALL LIGHT IN THE MOUNTAINS SEATTLE'. Dec. 21.— According to bulletin issued by the weather ser vice here, the snow fall during tu month of November, 1908, was ligat and there was less snow than usual on thei mountains at the end of the month. Considerable snow fell during October on different dates from tae 14th 10 the 24 th. but a warm spell following melted the greater portion ot t, so that there was less on the moun ain summit and slopes than usual a. :he end o£ that monih. November was above the average -n emperatare, and there was a nota e Iciiciency in precipitation throughou he state, there:ore the fall of snov. in he mountains was less than usua . ex j ?ept, perhaps, in the Blua mountains, vhere, it is thought, therei nvay ha\e seen a little more. Reports from the western slope o he Cai-cades show little or no snow «•<. he end of the month, except on the summits, where it is estimated at from '•x inches to about three feet, accord ng to locality. On the eastern slope >f th e Cascades the, weather was 'rally so mild during the month tha ittle snow fell except in the higher altitudes. Reports from the Yakima Jeadwaters show lees snow than lsua l. A snow scale on the summit >f Stampede Pass, which wa> recently 'cted for the weather bureau, has r.ad at intervals by telephone inemen passing over the summit. On »>ctober 23d, the scale stoowed six iv.'fv, 0t snow; °n November 14th and ' er e "was none; on November 23d WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON, MONDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1908. there was four inches. In the highlands of Okanogan, Ferry, and Stevens counties, there was gen erally no snow in the valleys until the 29th, when the wenther turned colder. On the mountains the depth at the end of the month was from four inches to one foot, according to estimates in different localities. In the foot-hills of the Blue mountains, the first snow of the season fell on thei 29th and 30th, but melted rapidly as it fell. Thus far the season, in regard to snowfall, is strikingly similar to that of 1907-8. Victims Get Bogus Bills BELLINGHAM, Dec. 21.—That there are still "easy marks" left in Belltng ham is evidenced by the success of a well dressed man in passing Confed erate currency in several places in this city. The victims, most of them merchants, tried to keep the story from the newspapers, but secret service men failing to locate the stranger, let the news leak out. j The man passed first a $10 Confed erate bill at a dairy station, receiving change in good money. He bought a •loaf of bread with another and re ceived $9.95 in change. He later re turned to the bakery and passed a $20 Confederate bill. The bill bore the stamp of the Bank of Georgia. DIRECTORS' MEETING A GOOD ONE The sessions of the county school directors' meeting held in the court housed on Saturday, were completed at the close of the afternoon and the meeting was adjourned. About 50 di rectors from the districts of the coun it was so near Christmas probably be ing responsible for the small attend ance. "The meeting- was good although the attendance was small," said County Superintendent Bond 'this morninf. "Those who were present showed mtfch interest in the work and through, them we expect much good to be done. Especially were those present benefitted in the explanation of the Labor Trouble Not Yet Settled As a compromise to the threatened trouble between the Cooks' and i Waiters' union and proprietors of res- j taurants of the city, thei union at a j special meeting held last night adopt ed a resolution to abide by the reduc tion in wages until April 1, but to work only on 10-hour shifts. As the proprietors demand an 11-hour shift, therei is still a dissension, and to straighten out the tangle and if pos sible, bring the question to an amica ble settlement, a committee is this afternoon waiting on employers. In speaking of the action of the union men th: s morning, Manager Joe Boden, of the Creamery cafe and the Calumet, said: "I do not know what we are going to do, yet, for we have received no of ficial 'notice of any action taken by the nion. The committei will call on us this afternon and we will then be able to tell what action to take. I under stand they have agreed to abide by the reduction, but want a ten-hour shift. If that is granted, it will moan an adeii- Work on New Jute Mill i Held up by Cold Snap Owing to the severe freeze of the past week, operations on the new jute mill at the state penitentiary have been held up, and brick work on the walls has not progressed noticeably. The window casings, provided with steel bars, are now being put in, the walls having been completed on three sides of the building as far as the >ill line. As soon as weather condi tions will permit, 15 or 20 brick ma sons will again take up active work, so that there may b? no more delay than possible in the completion of the structure, which will be 171 by 303 feet —more than double the dimensions of teh present jute mill. The estimated cost of the new mill, which is being built at the north end of the prison proper, when fitted out completely with machinery and para phernalia. will be something cveJ $125,000. an appropriation of $28,0110 having beer, made two years ago by the legislature for the purchase of structural steel, and $75,000 having been put aside for the purchase of ad ditional machinery. Counting in the convict labor which has been and Is being utilized on the mill, together with fhe immense number of bricß. and t;:e new plant would reach a point in cost well above the $200,000 mark. There will be a total of 145 looms in operation in the jutue mill. 70 of them to be removed from the old plant; 75 new looms have been bought and are now in the warehouse await ing the com pletion of the building. In addition to the looms, which will em ploy between 550 and 600 convicts, there will be other machinery necessary in a plant cf that kind. The building will be fire proof throughout, or as nearly so as steel and concrete can make it. and the danger of fire, which is so marked in the present mill, finished with wood on the interior, will be wholly eliminated. It was said this morning that the jute is given to fre quent combustion, causing an incipi ent blaze ii tJie P resent establishmenr every week. Because of the flimsinrss of the structure, those in charge are forced to be ever ready with the fire hose and their vigilance is due to the ESTABLISHED 1861 proposed changes of the commission by Superintendent Dewey. The meet ing was interesting, and the one next year will -be much more largely at tended I am sure." farmers Will fleet Monday O. M. O'jsen and R. W. Thatcher, professors of tne Washington State college at Pullman will arrive in the city early next Monday morning on their special O. R. & N. educational train, and three sessions, comprising a farmers' institute, will be held in the rooms of the Commercial club, one in the morning, one in the afternoon and another in the evening The pro fessors are on their regular tour of the state and everywhere they have been much interest has been taken in the work. The farmers of Walla Walla valley are cordially invited; and urgedj to attend the sessions next Monday, as the addresses to be delivered by the authorities of the state college will be of a high order and contain much of general interest to tillers of the soil. Among the other speakers who will make talks to the farmers here are Professor A. L. Melander, the bee ex pert, and Professor Trumbull, the fruit man, who has is past seasons eon ducted successful spraying experiments here. Farming of all kinds, as well as dairying, will be touched upon by the speakers, and all farmers, fruit men and dairy men of the valley are invited l to attend the meetings. Taft-Bur ton Row Is Now Explained WASHINGTON; Dec. 21.—The cause of the recent disagreement be tween Taft and Representative Bur ton of Ohio, was explained today by Chairman Brown of the Ohio republi can central committee. Brown said tl:e split was caused primarily by Taft's belief thai Burton misrepresent ed his attitude on the Ohio senatorial fight and denied that the break re sulted from Taft's opposition to Bur- tional shift, and that we icannot afford at this season whan the two eating 'houses are not doing the business that one of them should be doing. "I have a 1.; l of men who want to go to work in case the union men go on strike, but I have not been offi cially notified as to their demands, I cannot say at this time what action we shall tuke. I have been told that the leading members of the union were not present at last night's meeting, but that the; resolution was drawn up by some of the younger hot-headed member-; they will put their union out of existence if discretion is mot employed." Members of thei organization this morning said they had agreed to stand by the reduction in wages, if granted a ten-hour shift, but as the proprietor d:d not iook with favor up>n the pro position this morning, it is doubtful if a cla-h can be avoided. However, the conference this afternoon may result in a re : gn of peace and a cessation of hostilities until April 1. fact that the old mill has not, long erf this, been converted to a mass of ruins. As soon as the new building is com pleted, the old building is to be razed, and the old concrete, steel and brick in the walls is to be used in building 1400 feet of new stockade to surround the new mill, in front of which will be located the playground of more than twice the size of the present recrea tion ground. It is the intention of those in charge to erect the chapel on the old playground, when the de cision to erect such a structure Is reached. Besides giving the prisoners much more room for their exercises, ball games, and other sports, the new stockade, to be extended north from the old walls, and across the rear of the new mill, will elo away with much of the worry incident to taking the jute workers to and from the mill as they will not leave the prison walla in going to tfce mill. The play ground is to be 250 by 40® feet. The excavation for the new mill was, perhaps, the biggest undertaking in connection with the erection of the structure, a large area having to be leveled. About lJd men were employed for six months in making the excava tions, and as a result a draw some 20 feet in depth just to weft of the prison has been filled and made as level as a lawn. The work was all done by hand making it more difficult and laborious than though done with machinery. Warden C. S. Reed said this morning, however, that many ap plications were received from prison ers who desired that class of work, and practically every man in the pris on was kept at work throughout the summer season. Estimates as to the time 1n which the new jute mill can be completed and the machinery installed vary some what, but it is believed that within a year from this date, the hum of wheels in the new building will be heard. The plant will be operated with electricity, and the steam needed will be piped from the big plant in the main prison buildings. ton running against Toft's brother Charles in the senatorial fight. Taft was angry with Burton after a con versation with the latter in which *he told Burton that he was not politi cally embarrassed by the candidacy of his brother, Charles P. Taft, and that he thought his brother should enter the race. Taft was angry because the impression gained strength that Taft had expressed himself as being under obligations to Burton. +*♦♦**++++++++++ + ANGRY LOVER SHOOTS. ♦ 4* ELY, Nev., Dec. 21.—Peter *• Gigosizich. was identified today •J- by Amelia Bogan, aged 15, as the ♦ + man who shot her and her com- * «i» panion, George Saturday «fr 4» night.
