THIRBER BOND ELECTION NOVEMBERS Taxpayers of Lewiston Will Be asked to Vote For or Against an issue of $80,000 on that Date Sewer System Extended to Include Thompson Addition. The council at its meeting last night fixed upon Thursday, November 19, as the date for the special election when j the question of issuing $80,000 of bonds to complete the city water system and redeem outstanding warrants will be voted upon. A résolution was read describing the sewer district. The district was charged to extend east from 18th to 20th street, and to include the Thompson addition on Normal hill and some part of the city west of that addition. The section east of Thompson's addition will come under a separate sewer system sometime in the future. A street light was ordered placed at the corner of Main and Monis streets. City Treasurer Poe presented the fol lowing report: "In accordance with your request, herewith submit a statement showing the warrant indebtedness of the city up to and including the date hereof, the same showing also the amount of interest due on outstanding warrants: Fund.

The interest on them has been calculated to the date they were called. The warrants not having been presented when called, the money has been used to take up other warrants which were issued subsequent to them." City attorney McFarland submitted the following communication: "Some time ago the claim of Dudley Gilman for injuries sustained on the side walk on Main street was referred to me. I desire to advise the council that I have made considerable examination and in quiry from parties who claim to know the facts, and have been unable to ascer tain any liability on the part of the city. I would recommend to the council that this matter be referred to a committee, as I desire that the couucil be informed as to the facts in the matter." Councilmeq Kjos, Colby and Morey were appointed by the mayor to investi gate the matter. The request of the normal board for a reduction of water reptal was refused. The campus came in for the compliments of some members ol the council owing to the rank growth of weeds thereon. As to interest on city money on deposit in local banks, it developed that by a supreme court decision the city treasurer is the sole custodian of public funds and as such can deposit the same in banks or not Kjos thought the city ought' to realize at least 3 per cent, iuterest. The matter was dropped. A report submitied showed that 1,085 feet of 8-inch sewer pipe and 60 leet of 6-inch pipe ha- been placed on Normal hill by Supt. Lewis. Council adjourned to meet Saturday evening. Grain Coming Slowly. , • Mr. B. Coon, owner of the Asotin ware house, was in the city this morning. Mr. Coon states that almost all of the threshing in Asotin county has been done. A few fields up next to the Blue mountains «have not been harvested. There will be almost no loss from damp weather this fall. The farmers have been supplying the flouting mills at Asotin with the first grain and thereby only 5,000 sacks have been stored in the ware house up to date. Only 30 sacks out of the 5,000 have been the least damaged by the rams and these were only sprouted 011 the outside. Most of the grain from Asotin flat this year will be marketed as first class quality. Alva Coon and Waller Jones left yester day for Kouse creek » here they will take charge of the large warehouse they pur chased last fall. Mr. Alya Coon will leave, as soon as the grain hanling sea son is over lor Seattle where be is taking a course in the Washington State Univer sity. __ ___ Scattering Fair Potters.

NORMAL SCHOOL HAS 130 Car Thrown From Track. While making a flying switch yester day a freight engine turned a car of wood over -in froni of the section house. As the car left the track it tore loose from the tracks and feil across the main line track. This morning a steam derrick arrived from Spokane and lifted the car on its wheels again. The steel wire was at tached to the underside of the box and a moments work with the steam drum brought it to an erect position then the ropes were tked around the centrr and the heavy cur suspended in mid air until the wheels could be attached to the bottom. Students for the Lewiston State Normal Are Arriving From Every part of the State—The Enrollment Will ((each 175 Before the Last of October—The Football Team Is Practising. The Lewiston State Normal has reached the 130 mark and hopes to reach 175 by the end of October. New students from all parts of the state are coming in every day. A visitor at the school building can not help but be impressed by the diguity with which the school is working out its missious. At six o'clock iu the morning the first bell calls the student from liis slumbers in the dormitory. A bell at 6:30 an nounces breakfast in the dining hall. The students gather at the dormitory board to enjoy their meals served in the most elegant homelike st le. The dormitories are governed by rules that make the caller feel that one is entering the most modern dwelling where good manner and perfect order is the mark of culture. At 8:30 students may lie seen coming from every direction in the city and hurrying over the broad campus to their work in the main building. The teachers are there to meet them. Every thing goes smoothly during the day and the happy student returns to his home or appartments feeling that he lias received instruction worthy of his time and the expense he has called upon to bear. After school the young gentlemen gather on the campus and practice at the game of football under the direction of Prof. Hibbard. Our Normal will put a strong team in the field this year. Dates for games have been partially ma.Ie with all of the big teams in the northwest The changes in the rules of football makes the game less liable to fatalities and makes lightness and speed more of a feature of the contests. This will be an advantage to smaller colleges. The ladies will soon orgauize a basket trail team. The campus is torn up now by the sewer ditch that is being dug through the center, but as soon as this ditch is filled the football grounds will be marked off and a number of tenuis courts will be laid out.
