Pullman's Census
Almost Completed
Enumerator Melvin Will Finish Work
Here Next Week. Get in and Help.
It. is the duty of every one to as
sist the census enumerator in secur
ing the names of actual residents of
Pullman. If you know of any one
who has not heen counted make it
a point to see that his or her name
is given to John Melvin, enumerator
for Pullman. The work must be com-1
pleted by May 15, and there is no
doubt thai many have heen overlook-1
cd. "I have been as careful as pos
sible In my work so far, hut am cer
tain that I have missed some in the
first ami third wards," said Mr. Mel
vin to the Herald reporter. "1 have
made a number of requests that all
who have been missed report to mo
as early as possible to get. the names
of any who have bet overlooked,
before .May 15. It will he too late
after that. I have completed the first
and third wards and am now work
ing on the second. I expect to have
the work completed before the time
allowed, .May 1.",, hut any names
given me before that time may he
counted. 1 hope that every one will
assist in getting the nanus of any
one who ha - be< missed."
Ten years ago, when the last fed- ;
oral census was taken, Pullman had ;
1308 inhabitants. There is no doubt
thai the town has increased more
than 100 per cent, and the popula
tion may reach 3000. In that case it
will, without, doubt, be the largest
town in the county, for no one be
lieves that Colfax, which was the
largest in 1910, with a population
of 2121, has gained more than a few
hundred in population] It. is known
thai the third ward has more than
1000 inhabitants, and the first ward
about Too. The state college is out
side the city limits and a large num
ber id' residences north of the college
are outside the limits of Pullman
and Hie people living there will not
lie counted as citizens of this town,
although they rightfully belong here.
An increase of 100 per cent in 10
years is a remarkable growth and
but few towns or cities will show It,
except in the northwest. It is believ-
The movement for the beautifying
of Pullman has been awakening
much interest and considerable en
thusiasm among Pullman's progres
sive citizens. A mass meeting held
In the Christian church Sunday even
ing to take the place of Hie regular
services, was devoted exclusively to
the "city beautiful" movement.
President Bryan spoke on the "edu
cational value, of a beautiful city,"
laying much stress on the advan
tages certain to follow the movement
now on foot, if it is kept up until its
aims are accomplished. Professor W.
G. Beach spoke on "The Moral Value
of a Beautiful City." The meeting
was well attended and much interest
and enthusiasm was shown. The

A special dispatch to The spokes
man- Review from Walla Walla tells
of the work being done by Professor
A. [_, Melander, entomologist of
Washington State College in fighting
the codling moth in W. S. Offner's
big orchard. The results of this work
will be awaited with deep interest
by the fruit growers of the entire
northwest. Its success means millions
of dollars to the fruit growing in
terest of the northwest and It also
means a new insectary for Washing
ton State College. There Is no doubt
here that Professor Melander will
win his fight. The dispatch to the
Spokesman-Review is here given:

been claiming such an enormous
growth, are falling far below the es
timated population and the news?
papers published therein are pre
paring for the exposure of the basje
lessness of their claims, by howling
about people being overlooked by the
census enumerators. Seattle, which
claimed 350,000 Inhabitants, is now
claiming 250,000, but it is thought
that the report of the enumerator
will show much less than that num
ber. In 1900 Seattle had a popula
tion of 80,671. Spokane, which claim
ed 150,000, and was estimated by
some of the real estate boomers to
have 200,000, is now claiming 108,

The following resolution was en

evening's mass meeting as expressive
of the sentiment of the meeting:
"That we, the citizens of Pullman,
in mass meeting assembled, do here
by express our heartfelt appreciation
of the suggestive addresses by Presi
dent. Bryan and Prof Beack, of the
educational and moral advantages of
civic Improvement and that we also
extend our hearty sympathy to the

task though he thinks now that vic
tory will be his.
Professor Melander Is doing this
hit of spraying on a wager. Part of
his work is to tell farmers of the
state how to spray. Mr. Offner, hear
ing Professor Melander speak of
spraying at the Wenatchee meeting
of tin- horticulturists last winter, told
the professor If he could actually do
what he said he could, he could come
and spray his orchard. He told him
if he killed the codling moth he
would pay for the spraying, by giv
ing the college a $500 Insectary.
The villain In this drama is the
weather man, who pulled off two siz
zling days last week. The days push
ed tile fruit trees along about two
weeks, and the wide open callzes In
to which Professor Melander expect
ed to squirt his poison dope, were al
most closed.
Then came the present cold spell
which slopped development, and
he professor an assistant are sprny-
Ing. The fact thai the floral cavi

Rjowettt Price in Three Tears lias
Been Reached, Rut Further
Decline Expected.
Wheat is now Belling at the low
est price in three years. Local deal
ers are offering but G3 cents per bu
shel for red wheat, with correspond
ing figures for the better varieties.
This is a decline of .'l7 cents per bu
shel from the highest mark reached
last winter when reel wheal bronchi
as high as $1 per bushel at some Pa
louse country points. Dealers predict
a still further decline and some say
we will again see "50-cent wheat,"
which has not been soon here in
many years. No one attempts to ex
plain the drop in prices which has
been steady and rapid for several
weeks. The , fall caught farmers'
with ihem-eatesl amount of wheat
.ever held at this time of year. It
seems strange that, with the high
est prices ever obtained, farmers
should refuse to Bell, hut more than
the usual number held for the "high
er prices" they were Certain Were
coming, and they got badly left.
The farmer who has hogs now is
in luck. With wheat sidling at about
60 cents per bushel and hogs bring
ing 9 1-2 cents per pound, live,
weight, there Is an enormous profit
in feeding hogs, and those fortunate
enough to have hogs to feed are in
luck. The price of stock hogs is high
er and the demand greater than ever'
known. It is thought thai Hie price
of fat hogs will remain high for
man} months, and probably for two
or throe years, but no one expects
the price to remain long at thepre
sent figures, which are the highest
ever known, but six or seven cents
per pound is regarded as a high price
and one at which the producer can
make a big profit. Farmers are ar
ranging to increase their output of
hogs and this is destined to become a
great hog country in the next few
years. Local dealers say they are
selling more than the usual amount
of hot; fencing Ibis" spring, while a
large acreage of alfalfa and other
pasture grasses is being planted.
Although farmers have; been sell
ing considerable wheat of late, there
Is still a large amount in the coun
try tributary to Pullman, the amount
being estimated at from 100,000 to
125,000 bushels. As farmers will
have to pay taxes on this in addi
tion to the drop of from ,",0 to 40
cents per bushel, those who held for
higher prices are doomed to tie
heavy losers. Oats and barley have
dropped in sympathy wit wheal.
