Greenawalt, 17; William Goodyear, 16: Lee Allen, 16. The Pullman Chamber of Com merce has raised to date $4343.93, and has expended $3950.88, leaving a balance of $393.05. Of this re maining sum, $380.00 is the amount paid into the Initiation fund, which will not be' touched in exploiting the work of the Chamber of Com merce. The chamber was organized November 21st, 1910 with a member ship of 46. During the past year the membership has Increased to 131. Forty-nine meetings of the' chamber and 57 meetings of the trustees have been held. The average attendance at the weekly meetings of the Cham ber has been 25. During the year exhibits have been held at the Missouri Valley fair in Kansas City: at the Spokane interstate fair: at the Whitman county fair; and the National Apple Show. Over thirty thousand pieces of literature have been distributed during the year, and there is yet on hand about ten thousand primers and community books for distribu tion. At the present time upwards of 100 pieces of literature are being sent out each week. In a brief summary of the work accomplished during the year, mention should be made of the establishment of the 'Bologna" Asks $1000 Cost Bond "Bologna," much imposed upon Ce lestial, and principal figure in a $50,000 breach of promise suit, tiled against him' by Anna Hooper/of Spokane, who. it is supposed, thinks the Chink has money and desires to Ret it, yesterday filed a motion for a cost bond of $1,000 through his at torneys. Sanger and Dow. This action on the part of Bologna's attorneys will undoubtedly put a damper on the relentless hopes of the Spokane wo man to fleece Gong Lee out of his hard earned money, Gong has many friends in the city of Pullman, and every means will be supplied the un lucky son of China in fighting the case should it be carried further. "Bologna" is a familiar figure in j Pullman, and has been for the past twenty- years. Never has he done any man harm, and always has he' been a peaceful and law-abiding mem-1 ber of the community. Since coming | to Pullman over twenty years ago. the Chinaman has made his living j selling garden truck from door to door. Those who know him best' say that, he has not the money that he is supposed to have, according to the Spokane woman who is suing him for a broach of promise.

E. C. Turnbow, Frank Lavin and Lotta V. Edwards were elected to membership in the Chamber of Com- , merce. A movement, state wide in its scope, is on foot to make the Col umbia river navigable to the bound ary of British Columbia, giving a total navigable mileage of over 900 miles, and opening up the Snake riv er for boating purposes as far up as Lewiston. Every Chamber of Commerce in the state Is boosting this big movement, including the lo cal organization. A wire to Sena tors Poindexter'and Jones, and Rep resentative La Follette will be sent Saturday by the Pullman body, en dorsing the proposed legislation for, which it is expected that 110,000,000 will be appropriated if passed. These , endorsements from the various I Chambers of Commerce throughout the state will be used to aid in pro curing the enactment of the bill. Spokane, In an effort to secure) that place as the next meeting of the! National Rivers and Harbor Commit tee, has asked the Pullman Chamber among the others of the state, to j use what influence they could bring to bear to aid in the securing for the west this big meeting. The lo cal Chamber has complied with the | request sent out by the Spokane Chamber, and Secretary Harrison has ' wired J, J. Ellison, secretary of the; national congress, the endorsement of ! the Pullman body. Before adjourning, the Chamber j of Commerce listened to speeches from President Frank M, Single. .1. N. Emerson, on "Some of (the Things We Have Done;" Professor; Watt, on "City Improvements;" Professor Waller, on "Some Things j We Hope- to Do;" J. J. Rouse on "The ! Knocker," and John H.

In their attempt to extract from the kind old mongolian what little' money he may have saved from his , _ vegetable business are many. Gong Lee has lived a life of mis fortune, and Is now in his later years, suffering almost total blindness as a: result of an attack upon him by a French cook some years ago, whose position "Bologna" was given after the Frenchman had been released, Because of his many hardships, the citizens of Pullman extend their sym pathy to the old man, and pledge' their support to his cause.

Dow \ 19 33 57 139 I———————————— - T ' Nothing out of the ordinary was evidenced on the pari of the citizens of Pullman in the interest shown in Tuesday's election of mayor, city at torney, and four councilmen, one of the four being councilman at large, The final returns show Dr. A. E. Shaw leading in the inayoralily race by a comfortably plurality, and M. S. Jamar victor over I). C. Dow, present incumbent, for the office of city attorney. Three councilmen, one from each ward, hold over, these men being U. G. Lawler, of the first ward, Murray Henry of the second ward, and Frank E. Sanger of the third ward. Charles White replaces D. F. Staley in the first ward, E. L. McAlister takes the vacated seat of Harry Douglas in the second ward, and D. M- Haynes succeeds Charles Price in the third ward. Charles Price still retains his seat in the council, having been elected council man at large to succeed John San born, who did not run for re-election. Neither Mayor-elect Shaw nor At torney-elect Jamar were nominated at the primaries and their names did not appear on the ticket, but both wen elected by the use of "stickers." . The new officers take their oaths of office on January Ist of the com ing year. Doctor E. Maguire. pres ent mayor, did not allow his name to be used for re-election in the re cent campaign. J. S. Klemgard, of j the Pullman State Bank, is the de ! feated candidate for mayor. The | newly elected councilmen hold office j for two years, while the mayor, coun- I cilman at large, the clerk and treas i urer are elected for one year only. Doctor Shaw, who replaces Mayor : Maguire on the first day of the year j will say nothing for publication other ; than to reiterate the stand taken in i his statement announcing bis candid acy for the mayor's position. "1 am pleased with the result of the elec tion," said Doctor Shaw today, "and I have nothing to say regarding the policy that I shall follow during the j coming two years except that every ) man and every detail of the regime I shall receive a square deal. Ido not take over the office until January I, and until that time I have nothing definite to offer as to my policy, I ! shall consult my friends and support ers before outlining the work to tie' done during the incumbency of my- j self as mayor. Towards the begin ning of the new year, I hope to have a general grasp of the problems lac ing the citizens of Pullman, and it I win then be time enough to announce the policy of the new city govern ment." ! The new council will lie called upon to face many serious problems that will materially effect the citizens of! Pullman and vicinity. Each and every member of the new body ear- j nestly ask for the united support of j the citizens of Pullman during the! coming two years. In the near fu ture the council will consider the proposition of relighting the city of Pullman, and several members favor j the Tungsten plan of providing light j for the city. A campaign for bet ter streets and side-walks the city over will be waged by the new law- j making body, as well as a movement to macadamize the road from the cen ter of town to the college. Perhaps the most serious problem to come before the council will lie' j In regard to the granting of a new franchise to the Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Company, whose present franchise expires next March. The telephone people have asked for a \ 25 year renewal of their right to car-1 ry on their business in Pullman, ihe council contemplates at its ( next meeting the appointment of an investigating committee to pass on the fitness of the pictures* and films used by the Star Theater of Pullman. This committee will prob ably consist of three members, whose duty It will be to render a decision , as to whether or not pictures shown at the Star Theater each week are of the right nature. The different members of the coun- j cil ask too that the people of Pull- j man take some active interest in the j appointments to be made by the may or in filling the subordinate offices, ; such as marshal and police Judge. PRINCESS LEILA TELLS OP ROYAL ENTERTAINMENT Miss Leila Lavin, Pullman's Princess at Apple Show, Relates Pleasures of the Favored Young Ladies. I do not think that Mr. Horton. the representative of the Apple Show exaggerated one bit when he said ' that the "princesses" would bare the best time of their lives during the Apple Show. Spokane is surely deserving of credit for the way In which they entertained the princess es. The first day, Thursday, Novem ber 23rd, was the busiest day of all. At 10 o'clock was the dedication of the Monroe street bridge. In the' afternoon an Informal reception and : tea was given by the hostesses for ; the princesses and their escorts in the beautiful palm garden of the new i Inland club. This reception was merely for getting acquainted, and , each princess was given a royal 9 purple badge bearing the name' of , the town she represented. In the evening there was an automobile parade, about two miles long, through the business streets of the rity and ended at the Apple Show building. After the parade the coro nation ceremonies took place. The king sat on a high throne in the center of the stage and grouped on either side of the throne were the members of the royal apple family. the knights in waiting and the thirty three visiting princesses. Archbishop Herbert Moore read the coronation ceremony and placed the crown on the king's head, proclaiming him King Apple IV. The king responded with a short address and this con cluded the coronation ceremonies. On the next day, Friday, there' was a decorated automobile parade In the afternoon. Eighteen electric cars, all beautifully decorated, were in the parade. in the evening at Si o'clock the visiting princesses were presented to the king. James W. ] Evans, court chamberlain. Introduc |ed each princess Individually, call i ing her name and the town she ; represented and each princess In turn I court sled twice to the king. Immediately following this the princesses were driven to the corona tion ball In the Hall Of the' Doges jat Davenports. Over 50 subjects of ■ ! King Apple participated In this ball. I : When the arrival of the king was an nounced by C. B. Bradford, master I of ceremonies, the grand march was, I formed. As the king mounted his | throne four colored trumpeters ! sounded the royal salute and the' | grand march started. First came Pullman Ships Much Livestock The shipments of cattle and hogs from Pullman during the 12 months of 191 1. will amount to at least $.".<». --j 000. This is the estimated value of Carload shipments alone, and does not include any shipments of stock hogs, pure-bred or other shipped for breed ing purposes by express or in less than carload lots, nor does it in clude dressed veal, of which hundreds 'if not thousands of dollars worth have been shipped during this year. The shipments include 4 2 carloads i of hogs and 10 carloads of cattle. The : Northern Pacific shipped '.',', carloads ! of hogs and the 0.-W. R. & N. ship ped seven carloads. The Northern Pacific shipped six cars of cattle and the other road shipped two carloads, 'i he shipments over the 0.-W. R. & I N. went to Osborne and other points !in tin- Coeur d'Alenes. The ship ; un-nts over the Northern Pacific went Ito Tacoma, Seattle, and Spokane. ! Two carloads of stock bogs were ship- I ped by J. S. Adams for the big Cool- I Idge-McClalne ranch at Burbank, on Snake river, between Walla Walla and Pasco, where this firm is mak ing a big alfalfa and stock ranch and 1 where hog raising Is to bo an Impor ; tant industry. i But five carloads of apples have been shipped out of Pullman this year. The last car went out Tues day, when B. C. Cameron, of Farm- .mil i u-^wV - NUMBER .0 four trumpeters from Fort George Wright. Following the trumpeters came four king's councillors, two archbishops and the * thirty-three princesses and their escorts. 1 After the- grand march was finished the dancing began. During the evening Madame La Uarraque, a famous blind soprano entertained with sev eral songs and Albert Nightingale, solo cornetist, gave several se lections. Punch was served In the balcony and here many played cards or watched the dancers. The danc ing continued until long after mid night. After the dance each princess was presented with a large box of candy. Saturday was a very disagreeable day, as It rained all day. Not many princesses rode in the royal In dustries parade in the afternoon, but none' could afford to miss the theater party nt the Auditorium in the even ing. The play was the "Spring Maid," and was a great success. Af ter tin' theater a luncheon was given for the princesses at Davenports. Sunday was a day of rest and was sorely needed after three such strenuous days and nights. Monday was the Inland Empire parade. This parade was more than 3 This parade was more than three miles in length. ' Each town in the Inland Empire was represented by a beautiful float and a band. The Pullman float section, led by the W. S. (' band was a brilliant part of the procession. The float symbolized t!ie wealth of the I'alouse country by grains, fruits and vegetables, and was gay with the college colors, crimson and gray. ' Tuesday evening a banquet in hon or of the princesses and their host esses was given .it the Hall of the Doges, During the- courses the Enakops chorus entertained with several songs. The chorus Bang the verses to several of the popular songs and Invited the guests to sing the chorus, which they did with great enthusiasm, At the banquet each princess received a large boquet of violets. Wednesday afternoon ■ "Seeing Spokane',' auto trip was greatly en joyed by all the princesses. Thursday, Thanksgiving day, the , last day of the Apple Show, all the princesses attended in a body the Wenatcl -Spokane game and this closed our week of entertainment. Leila Lavin I lngton, came down and shipped the j last of four carloads he had bought from local men. The other carload ■ was shipped by ■ Lewiston firm.' There is probably half a carload of apples left here to be shipped in small lots, in addition to those need ed for home consumption. Strange as it may seem, the rail road record shows that more apples have been shipped into Pullman than out of it. Up to date the vinegar factory has Imported more than 100 tons, or about seven full carloads of apples to be used In making cider and vinegar at its plant on the Northern Pacific tracks In the north part of town. Seniors I^-ad in Scholarship Principal F. N. Bryant, of the high school, this week completed a chart showing the standard of scholarship maintained by each of the four classes during the first half of the present semester.
