Judgment for plaintiff.
Laura E Fuller was granted a decree

Thursday, Prosecuting Attorney In
man announced that no further action
would be taken in the case against
Judge McDonald and the cane wan dis
missed. Judge Jacobs explained that
he could not have sustained the inform
ation. The judge said lie had read the
testimony in full an taken in the cane be
fore Justice Kirkland, and that if the
Btate has no stronger testimony than
that, the prow :uting attorney i* acting
with good judgment in not proceeding
further in the matter.
Then Judge McDonald arose to the
occasion and made one of his character
istic spiels, in which h< «»id he had told
Keech that whatever he did to tell the
truth. Be started to open his battery
on Reed and Matthews, but was gently
called down by Judge Jacobs. McDon
ald was awfully sorry that the court
could not find some reason for overrul
ing the demurrer put in by his own coun
sel, that be might prove his absolute iu
nocence before a jury. He was still
sorrier that tbe prosecuting attorne
could not have found some way to file
another information, as he bad made up
his mind not to allow his count '1 to de
mur to it. He wanted to be tried very
badly, but all the time his attorneys
were clamoring at the court to be sure
and sec that the order of dismissal was

'/.. Haddock, charged with assault and
battery, was dismissed on the ground
that more than (50 days had expired
since the charge was tiled, although the
records show that the defendant cou-
Heuted to it.
The case of W. H. James was then
called and Judge Jacobs requested Mc-
Donald to take the bench; but alter a
whutpered conversation between the
judges, McDonald announced that he
would request Judge Jacobs to dispose
of the case. Attorney Reed for the de

When the cose was called the girl, the
complaining witness, could not be found.
She was dulj palled, but bad disappear

where she whs, but she said she did u<;t
know where Eva was; that she left last
Friday to see a neighbor and that was

The McDonald tight has opened with a
new chapter. The judge late Thursday

Mr. Reed says lie is ready to Bght it out
in approved style.
Cy Neel Appointed County Shrep
The county commissioners adjourned
Wednesday evening, after a two day's
session auditing election bills. They al
so set the bonds lor the couut.v officers
for the next term. The only change
made in amounts was in the bond of
Treasurer Windus,whico was raised from
$125,000 to $150,000. This was made
obligatory because of the fact that at
one time during the past year the tras
iir.v contained $150,000. Bonds of other
officers are: Auditor. $15,000; sheriff,
$5000; prosecuting attorney, $5000;
assessor, $5000; superintendent of
schools, $5000; surveyor, fixed by stat
ute, £111(1(1.
(\ Neel was appointed sheep commis
sioner. Dhe state law provides for the
appointment of B uch mi officer, where
deemed necessary, and fixes his compeu
SHtion at $2.50 a day, when actually on
Talking Contest.
There is some talk among interested
oius at Pullman of contesting the legis
lative eeat of E. .1. Durham, shown by
the canvassed returns to be one vote
ahead of Wiilord Allen, his colleague on
Hw'ticket. It i 8 claimed eight ballots in
1 ulltnan country precinct, rightly mark
ed for _ Allen, were not counted 'for him,
him! that these elected him instead of Mr
Durham On the other hand, Allen's
political enemies say if he contests this
thej will n,m,si Colfax prtcincts, and
( olfax republican* nay if they dothei
w, cont^t Iniontown, Harper, Rosalia
and other democratic precincts, and so
"n ad infinitum. All except the Mien
contest would be on technicalities It
has not >et been determined whether the
Allen contest will be opened.
At i lie Opera House.
E>«l before the pictorial advertise
ments of that beautiful play, -'Human
Hearts are posted in windows and on
the boards about town, its praises have
reached us: so quickly flies the news of
any great dramatic success. Not writ
ten for scholars, it is yet enjoyed hv
such, not writteu for the illiterate it is
yet to them absorbing in interest 'it ia
a play for all. It deals with humanity
the universal elements of life. In its un
folding by illustrations it teaches moral
lessons and we are told there jg no
better preaching than by example. N >)llf >
cpn blush to witness a performance of
this drama, which can be said of very
few entertainments offered in our
theatres today. Sustained interest and
pervading charms ore pronounced quali
ties found in this piny. It taken com
plete possession of the spectator, and
after moving him to tears, now to
laughter, holding him iv anxious sus
pense and satisfying his sense of justice,
sends him home thioking. It* influence
lasts long after the fall of the curtain
That "Human Hearts" will meet with a
warm greeting at the hand* of our
theatre-goers in a foregone conclusion.
To those who have not yet had that
pleasure it will be doubly welcome. At

Thanksgiving Militia Ball.
For the purpose of rapine funds to
ceil the armor] building, the officers and
members of Company L, N. G W., will
give a grand Thanksgiving ball at the
armory, Wednesday evening, November
28. (t is the expectation that this will

largely attended. However, the room in
a commodious one and the large crowd
certain to be in attendance will be well
taken care of.
Chairman Says Washington Will
Remain Republican.
"Washington is iv the republican col
umn to stay. Whatever may be said of
i be results of thp election, this state ha*
redeemed herself from the blight of pop
ulism of 1896. We have two cor;greKH
meu of the true faith, a legislature and
every Btate officer, including the judges
of the supreme court,save the governor."
So spoke John H Schively, chairman
of the republican state central com
"Unfortunate as wns the defeat of Sen
ator Frink," continued Mr Shively, "tbe
republicans of the ntate of Washington
have great reason to congratulate them
selves. Consider for a moment the cir
cumstances which confronted us at the
beginning of this campaign. In 1800
Bryan and frte silver won in thiH state
by 12,000 majority. In that election
not only wa« a populist legislature

of J nDm to pome extent m< lerated the
disaster of lN9(i and redeemed the state
partially from the baleful influences of
populism. Hut as the vote polled two
yearn ago wan not very large, there was
a chance in a presidential light for
Washington to again vole the wrong
'"The election shows that whatever
tears might have been entertained re
garding tbe soundness und permanency
of the conversion of our voters two
years ago were not well founded. Wash
ington has cboe.'o republican presi
dential electors by a majority of nearly,
if not quite, 12,000. Every candidate
on the state ticket is elect d save tbe
governor. Two republican congressmen
will safeguard the iut rest!? of the state
for two years mw^ Moreover the elec
tiou of a republican ir^tslatuu guaran
tees us safety .rom the threatened perils
of populistic Irginlaiiou.
"But over and above all this is tbe
fact that ii has been demonstrated be
yond a possibility of question that the
majority of tbe voters of this state are
in sympathy with the policy of the na
tional administration President M< -
Kinley's course in dealing with the
Philippine islands will benefit Washing
ton more than any state in tbe Union.
This state will therefore reap great ad
vantage* from the continuation of the
republican national administration. The
republican party will continue to grow
in influence and prestige in this wtnte be
cause it stands for every material in
terest we have, while democracy con
stitutes a continual menace For these
reasons, then, the republicans of Wash
ington, and indeed, the whole people <>f
tin 1 state, are to be congratulated "
Secretary Arrasmith of the committee,
while disappointed at the results in his
home county — Whitman— nevertheless
shares with Chairman Scbively his view
of the situation.
"Eastern Washington is republican on
national questions," he said. "I believe
that we have sen the end of populism in
this state. The republican party has no
need to fear the democratic party in any
Bghi . Four years,ttgo, when the populists
were in control in Eastern Washington,
there was always a danger from the fu
sion of the anti republican elements.
Fusion is no more and populism lihs
faded away. I believe we have gained
more voters from the old people's party
than the democrats. The election has
settled this fact, in my ((pinion."
