• ments —Leaves Thousands of
Charles Timblln, a loyal friend
and supporter of Washington State
College, died at his home in Spokane
Saturday morning, March 24th. Mr.
Timblln was the head of the depart
ment of Elementary Science and an
instructor In mathematics at the col
lege from 1905 to 1911. While here
he was one of the most energetic and
most beloved workers. He served on
many of the faculty committees, and
was chairman of perhaps the first
State College interscholastic track
Mr. Timblin was a man who
reached the hearts and influenced
the lives of the students. His
straightforward, direct advice and,
more than all, the Influence of his
own life, helped them to realize a
broader and truer vision. Since he
first came here. Mr. Timblln fre
quently loaned money to students
that they might secure an education.
He guaranteed notes for many
In 1911 he was forced to secure
work which would take him out of
doors more, and obtained a position
as agent for the Western Union Life
Insurance company. Mr. Timblln
was a remarkable business man and
rose rapidly in the company. Six
weeks ago he was made vice presi
Although he was no longer offici
ally connected with the college, Mr.
Tiinblln's Interest in Washington
State did not decrease. Last fall he
was the principal speaker at the
Idaho rally. Many other times he
has added enthusiasm to a college
event with his optimistic, straight
forward remarks. Wherever he has
been, he has been a friend and boost
er of Washington State.
Former President E. A. Bryan said
of Mr. Tlmblln's death: "This is In
deed a shock to me. Professor Tim
blln was a most excellent teacher, 1
very Impulsive, yet a man of excel
lent thought and disposition. His
wonderful sympathy with students
won him as many friends as any man
who ever was connected with the col
R. L. Rutter, president of the
Western Union Life, paid this trib

blin preached and practiced the gos-
P«l of 'divine discontent" In hie en
deavor for better and nobler things.
He was one of the most courageous
and characterful men I ever know—
& man with a high sense of honor.
He was royal-hearted—kind and
generous to a fault. His optimism
was Inspirational, and he did many
helpful things for his friends and ac
quaintances, particularly young men
and boys."
i "Many young men owe their suc

He was very popular with the stu

Judge Thos. Neill Will Return to
City of His Adoption After Seven
Veurs in Colfax
Judge Thos. Neill. who assisted
materially in making Pullman his
tory during the years of the town's
infancy and after it had assumed
greater proportions, has announced
his intention to return to the town
of his adoption and will again be a
full-fledged Pullman citizen very
shortly. The announcement will be
greeted with a great degree of sat
isfaction by the many old-time Pull
manites who remember the valuable
services rendered by Judge Neill In
the interests of the municipality dur
ing his long residence here. Judge
Neill left Pullman seven years ago
upon election to the superior judg
ship of the county. His residence in
the county seat town has been
marked by the same enthusiastic in
terest in that city's progress and de
velopment as attended his residence
The following story concerning
Judge Neill's decision to return to
the college town is taken from
Wednesday's Colfax Palouser:
"Last Saturday the law firm of
Neill & Burgunder was dissolved,
the senior member of the firm re
tiring, and Mr. Burgunder will con
tinue the practice in the future.
Judge Neill will take a deserved va
cation from the practice of law this
summer, but will continue to reside
at Colfax at least until after school
has closed. After that, his plans have
not yet fully been made, but it is
likely that the family will move to
Pullman, where Judge Neill has
property Interests, and where his
daughter, Miss Marjorie. will attend
the State College.
"Judge Neill Is one of the pioneer
Whitman county jurists and his
standing in the profession Is second
to none. His loss to Colfax, how
ever, will be more keenly felt
through the services he has been
wont to render In the way of civic
betterment. His worth to the city
during the years of his last residence
here is well-nigh Incalculable. Al
ways a leader in all that makes for
the good of the community, Judge
Neill has perhaps contributed more
time and thought to Colfax's civic
problems than any other man during
the past several years. It is with a
feeling of keen regret that the Pa
louser congratulates Pullman upon
the return of an honored and upright

.Indue McCroskey Sustains Demurrer
to Complaint of Mrs. Mathews ,
Las) Saturday Judge McCroskey'
sustained the demurrer entered by:
the county to the complaint of Mrs. ,
Serena Mathews et al., in the suit
brought to compel the count) com
missioners to pay claims for services
as election officials on the ba:iis of
the eight-hour law. Former Prose
cutor Burgunder filed a demurrer in
the Justice court at Pullman, which
was denied, and the case was ap
pealed to the superior court. The
demurrer states thai the complaint
fails to state facta sufficient to con
stitute a cause of action, in that the
eight-hour law does not apply to
work on election boards.
Arguments on the demurrer were
made by Prosecutor Clegg and Attor
ney Mathews before .indue McCros
key several weeks ago and the latter
took the matter under advisement.
On Saturday Judge McCroskey ren
dered a decision sustaining the de
murrer, and It Is thought that Prose
cutor Clegg will move to dismiss the
case. — Palouser.

frenzied Animal Chased Dogs and
Dallied with Family Dog—Ex
amination Gives Positive evi
dence of Dallies
Positive evidence of rabies was
discovered Wednesday afternoon by
members of the veterinary faculty of
the Slate College in a microscopic ex
amination of the brain of a coyote
killed Monday by R. F. Ilaxton near
Almota. Mr. Ilaxton is farming the
.1. W. Haines farm, 1 3 miles south
west of Pullman and five miles east
of Almota. .Monday morning he was
attracted by an unusual commotion
among his hogs and observed a
Strang acting coyote among them,
the animal holding his head
high in the air and running along
with the hogs, toward the house.
The family dog sallied forth to do
battle with t he Intruder, but got
considerably the worst of the argu
ment, the coyote biting him severely.
The coyote showed no signs of fear
and following his conquest of the
dog started leisurely down the road.
Mr. Haxton started after the ani
mal on horseback and soon located
him In a near-by field. The coyote
observed his pursuer and immediate
ly turned and started slowly toward
him. Mr Haxton waited until the
animal was within about L'". steps of
him and fired, two shots being re
quired to kill the coyote. Fearing
rabies. Mr. Haxton dispatched his
dog. which had been bitten in several
places, and brought the coyote car
cass to Pullman for examination,
Inasmuch as there are a large
number of unmuzzled dog- in the
Ilaxton neighborhood, fears are felt
that, the coyote may have Inoculated
some of them with the germs of the
dread disease. The farmers of that
district are urged to exercise every
precaution and watch closely for
Signs of the disease, at the same time
muzzling their canines.

■nan and Deliver Address on
Wednesday, April 11
Notice has been received that Ray
McKaig, lecturer for tho non-parti
san league of North Dakota, will be
in Pullman Wednesday, April 11.
Arrangements will probably be made
to have him speak In the chamber
of commerce room either in the
afternoon or evening. Mr. McKaig
is called the "John the Baptist", of
this new league of farmers which, in
the last election swept the state of
North Dakota by a vote of four to
In speaking of the work and pur
pose of the non-partisan league Mr.
McKaig says:
"Our league la nothing more than
an effort, through politics, to selve
our marketing problems. We are go
ing into the business of politics to
make it clean; to help solve the rural
school problem; to make our states
places where we build for our citi
zens instead of building for Wall
street. Food gambling must stop.
"1 am not a socialist. I am Just
a non-partisan republican. Just a
common-sensed citizen. They call us
socialists and populists, but we're
not. We captured the republican
party in our state, and palled all the
planks we favored in our republican
party platform. Our ultimate aim
is to go to Washington, by sending
a few strong fighters there. We
abolish partisan politics in state
lines. We vote for the best man, for
principle's sake, no matter what
party he belongs to.
"And we're going to win. This
movement is spreading faster than
populism ever spread; we take the
office to the man and (he man does
not seek our office.
"We elected the whole state ticket
in North Dakota by a vote of four to
one. Even our supreme court we put
through, because we are like Abra
ham Lincoln—we would like to have
God Almighty on our side, but we
must have the supreme court. We
are in the business to put the skids
under invisible government, and
wherever we find able, thinking men
and women, we find a welcome. Our
league is well equipped for this
work; we own the biggest daily
newspaper in North Dakota, the big
gest weekly. 160 automobiles, and
have a set of organizers and workers
that are tremendous in power.
"We will be In the state of Wash
ington this summer and help to get
the market in stable condition for all
producers. We officially promise to
enter the state of Washington on the
same basis'as we enter Colorado .and
Idaho, and unite this solid Northwest
