All pres ent were furnished WILD stage j money to bet and the bookmakers, 'true to their instincts, got all the I money. The prize which was to have been awarded to the one get ting the most money was not de livered, as it was claimed that some of the races were fixed. One of the successful features of the entertainment was a wheel of fortune that proved an open sesame to the refreshments. Considerable dissatisfaction was expressed among local Elks today when it became known that one half of the proceeds of the enter tainment went to a promoter. A tidy sum was realized from the performance last night and it was the impression of many local Elks, until this morning, that all of the money would go to the local lodge.

POLICE FORGE IS TOO SMALL One of the matters to engage the attention of the new city council will be an ordinance increasing the police force. At the urgent de mand of property owners the force was temporarily increased follow ing the San Francisco disa.-ter by the addition of 10 specials. These have been laid off, however. The personnel of the force at present is 44 officers- and men. In eastern cities the force Is kept up on the ratio of one police man to every 1000 inhabitants. On this ratio, allowing Spokane 80,000 inhabitants, the force here should number 80 men and officers. Despite the small number of men and the large area of the city, Chief Waller and the force have! been giving a very efficient service, j The addition of 10 men and two of-' fleers, a captain and a sergeant will j be asked for.
