There vqil be at least 60 men ample)ed on rock work at the Palo~tse camp, in addition to the men and teams em- Idoyed. Several hundred men will be employed on the highway between here and Garfield and many teams. The work between Cedar creek and Garfield will be almost exclusively slip work, where teams and scrapers will be heed. The heavie~lt rock cut will be on the Hughes place, just be- fore the road enters Palouse. The engineers have opened their headquarters in the rear rooms on the second floor of the Security State bask building. Many sub-contractors and others who will be connected with the construction have been in Pa- louse during the past several days. Mr. McKay is of the opinion that there will not be any contracts le~: for the road south from here toward Pullman this year, but says the corn-~ pletion of the road is badly needed, in order that traffic may take this route. One bridge, at Cedar creek, is in-i eluded in the contract and will be l built at once, according to Mr. Mc-i Kay. Sees Completion to Pullman. Pullman, Wash., April 27. That c:lose cooperation between the state highway commissioner and the com- missioners of Whitman county will make possible the eoml)letion of the eastern division of the Inland Em- pire highway during the next two ~'ears, is the opinion of Cotunty Com- missioner J. B. Sa~iborn. The la.~t legislature appropriated $135,000 for grading the highway between Gar- field and Pullman, via Palouse. A contract was let last week for the grading of that part of the highwa)" between Garfield and Palouse, tlie contract ,price including construc- tion of~ne bridge, being $87,000, leaving approximately $48,000 yet tion of pews.

Olympia, April 27.--:In response to questions submitted by Governor Hart and several prosecuting atlorney~ Attorney General L. L. Thcnnpson todqy filed a set of rulings on doubt- tul point~ in the act of 1921 under which a poll tax of $5 is now due a:~d payable by every resident of the el.ate over 21 and under 50 years of a~e. Opinions asked by the governor ap- IdY particularly to liability o~ em- 1,1oyers under the misdemeanor pen- alty of the act in the requirement that they deduct the amount of the poll tax from the pay of each em- IdOyec subject to the tax who can t:ot display a poll tax receipt or suf- ficient evidence of nonliabillty On these and other points the opinion of he attorney general reads: Employer Deductions. Employers may deduct amoflut 9f tl~e poll tax owed by an employe out of sal~/ry or wages due the employe that may be ~n the employer's hands after May 1, even though the pay is due for work actually done prior to May 1, and not exclusively from wages earned after May 1• Employers ;nay not dedue~ the amount of the poll tax due on wives from employee' pay, but the'- may act as agent in receiving such pay- ment by consent of the employes and transmit the amount to county treas- urers. Where a husband amp!eyes his wife in a business capacity, or a wife employs her husband, the em- ploying spouse is liable for tl, e tax of the other to the same extent as The Newest Near East Geography THE ac-corap'tnying map aims to show the extent of the operations of Near East Relief ahd also by contrast how comparatively limited is the At. manias area in the Near East controlled by the Bolsheviki.

NORTHERN GRAIN COMPANY LEASES BIG STRING OF HOUSES --MANY IN PALOUSE TERRI- TORY--JOHNSON PR~SIDENT~ Seattle, Wash., April 26.~By the terms of a lease signed today the Northern' Grain and Warehouse com- pany, with offices in the Arctic build- ing, gains control of more than 100 grain warehouses scattered over the wheat producing sections of Wash- ington, Oregon and Idaho, acocrdlng to an announcement made this after- upon by Moritz Thmnpsen, president of the Centennial Mills company. The warehouses have for years been in the control of three Seattle companies, the Centennial Mills com- pany, the Seattle Grain company ~nd the Pacific Coast Biscuit company. That the control of so many ware- houses by tiffs company would have any effect on the marketing of grain at any olher place than Seattle was denied by Thompsen, who sald it was merely a matter of one company tak- ing tim responsibility of housing the grain at ~arious centers. The three Seattle companies which have been relying on these warehouses for their :~upply of wheat will buy di- rect from the Northern Warehouse and Grain company, according to Tholll psen, "There are more than 100 grain warehouses in the threo northwest state:~ ~'hich have been controlled by these three companies, and they have a combined capacity of more than 5,000,000 bushels of wheat or nearly one-sixth of the average wheat crop of Washington. That a combination string of warehouses controlled by one company would result in the grain being marketed in Portland, Spokane or Tacoma is not the plan of the lessees," continued Mr. Thompsen, "and as far as our companies are concerned we will continue to get our wheat from the same warehouses under the new company." The Northern Grain and Ware* house company maintains offices in Spokane, portland, Tacoma and Seat- tle, but is understood by the terms of the lease that the main business of the company will be conducted from the Seattle headquarters. On account of the complicated na- ture of the transaction, the amoun~ of money involved would not be de- termined until the end of the year, Mr. Thompson said. The above transaction includes the Seattle Grain company house at Fal- len, which has been managed by E. A. Thayer for the past several years, and a number of other houses in this sec- ties of the Palouse district. A. P. Johnson, well known Garfield business man,' is president of the Northern Grain and Warehouse com- pany. Call New-State Convention.
