Washington-' APPi.is Members of Pullman Chamber of
Delegate* to National Grange Meet-
Ing at Atlantic City, N. J., lie
ceive Choice Fruit Prom
This Stud.
Every delegate to the meeting of
the National Grange, now in session
at Atlantic City, New Jersey, last
week received a magnificent speci
men of Washington grown apples,
the gift of the Spokane Chamber of
Commerce. Spokane also made a
bid for the next meeting of the Na
tional Grange through Di legate Keg
ley from this state, but the ii. Ire of
the delegates seemed to he for a
more central meeting place, and as
a consequence the Invitation of the
state of Ohio was accepted, The At-
lantic City Daily Press tells of tin
receipt of the apples by the grangers
ami tin- selection of the next place of
meeting as follows:
"Wednesday morning each mem-
ber of the National Grange received
a splendid Washington grown apple
by mail from the Spokane Chamber
of Commerce. The postage on each
tipple was \4 cents. m, ie Master
Kegley will us.- les fact as an argu
ment a:,,litis! our unjust postal laws
The embers appreciate tin- thought-
fulness of the Spokane Chamber of
Commerce and the Washington State
Next Place of Meeting.
"After the minutes had been read
and approved, came the selection of
a place of meeting next. year,
"Secretary Freeman read letters
from Cincinnati, Spokane and other
places. Spokane presented the great
est, volume of letters. There were
more than one hundred in all from
the governor down. Bellingham,
Wash., also extended an invitation.
"Mr. Kegley made a special and
eloquent plea for the body to go to
Washington next year. Bellingham
and Spokane both wanted the meet
ing. The governors of all tin- Pacific
coast states joined in the request for
Spokane and their letters were read
by Mr. Kegley . No Invitation could
he more cordial or promise greater
hospitality than the one made by Mr.
"Mr. Spence, of Oregon seconded
the motion for Spokane. All pos
sible courtesies should be extended.
"Mr. Laylln extended an invitation
from Ohio. It was cordial and gen
erous. All the cities of his state
wanted the meeting. Columbus was
especially anxious and its mayor bad
written a personal letter of invita
tion. Mr. Laylin added his own
tribute and spoke of the great, de
sire of the "Old. Guard," who with
tears in their eyes, wanted to see the
National Grange once more. Ohio
was peculiarly situated. It was in
the line of the march of Immigra
tion and New England and the north
had dropped off many of her noblest
sons on its soil. Every state in the
north and south had contributed
their share to its population. It was
the nursery of all that was noble in
our civilization.
Mr. Hoyt invited the meeting to
come to South Dakota. It came
from the entire state grange of his
state. Up did not consider invita
tions from boards of trade as impor
tant. They would give excursions to
points of great interest and other en
tertainments. Rapid City had all
hose advantages to offer and not
least of these would be 500 Indians
with a reproduction of the Custer
massacre. It was a powerful plea
made by Mr. Hoyt.
"Mr. Kegley said that the fabulous
wealth did not enter Into this case,
but Washington had natural beauties
equal to any other. He then read a
letter from the governor of Wash
ington, giving a most cordial invita
"Secretary Freeman said he had
listened to Brother Hoyt with plea
sure and would like to go there.
Brothers Kegley and Spence had also
told the truth and the welcome to
their state would be grand. But
there was Ohio and it was her turn.
The Grange there was large and the
welcome would be generous. There
was grand manhood and noble
womanhood In this order and he
wanted his state to see them. Co

Pullman Citizens Victims of Alleged
Bogus Solicitors for Magazines

authorized agent of several of the
most popular magazines and periodi
cals. He made a house to house
canvass on College hill and succeed

others for subscriptions to different
magazines, he collecting the money
when he took the order. After a
couple hours of work he found his
coffers swelled to the extent of about
a hundred dollars, but by this time
several of his victims had had time,
to think the matter over and were,
wondering how he could make such
extremely tempting prices on the
magazines. Several of them got
their heads together and came to the
