The" funeral ot Mrs. Mary E. Beach who passed away at an early hem last Friday morning, May 6. at the home of her sister. Mrs. J. A. Bloom tu this city, was held at-10:30 Mon- day from the residence and was at- tended by a large concourse or friends, the greater number of whom had known Mrs. Beach for many years and were. in fact, pioneers them- selves. In the number were not a few from outside communities Every detail was carried out in ac- cordance with the expressed wishes o~ the deceased. The beautiful Episcopal burial service was read by Rev. Edward W. Burleson. rector of Holy Trinity church. Prayer was of- fered by the Roy. W. M. ,Martin, pas- tor of the Methodist Episcopal church and three hymns were sung by Mrs. J. M. Rlsley and Mrs. J. B. Dudley. The hymns, which had been particularly loved by Mrs. Beach. were "Some Day 'Twill All Be Over," "Abide With Me," and "Asleep in Jesus." The floral offerings, coming as ex- pressions of love and esteem from in- dividuals and organizations, were nu- merous and beautiful. The pall bearers at this place were selected from among men who might be term- ed pioneers. They were J. C. North- rup, Alex. Warner F. H. Ankcorn, Chas. M. Mecklem, G. D. Kincaid and B. M. Scl~ick. The body was taken to Spokane on the 12:50 Spokane & Inland train, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Bloom and a number of close friends, and was laid beside the grave of the hus- band. the late E. N. Beach, In Green- wo~l cemetery. The pall bearers at "Spokane were selected from former Palouse friends of Mrs. Beach, now living in that city. They were J. K. McCornack, C. E. Frederick, John Kendall, W. R. Barnes, G. W. Barns and Walter Davenport. All places of business in this city were closed during the funeral out of respect to a pioneer, who had had no small part in the early-day devel- opment of the community. Lived Here 45 Years. The girlhood home of Mrs. Mary E. Beach was in Michiga~n, where she was born November 14, 1842, growing to womanhood in that state. In De- cember, 1867, she was married to Dr. Fitch. In the winter of 1874 she and her husband came to the Pacific coast, locating at Junction City, 0re- gon. In the fall of 1876 they came to Washington, and located on a farm just south of the present Palouse city limits. At that ti~o Colfax and Pa- louse were the only named towns in Whitman county. Palouse, according to notes Jotted down by Mrs. Beach, during the past winter, when she knew the end was not far away, con- sisted o~ one small flour mill, two very small stores, a box school house and a few small residences. Colfax had but one store, but had a small hotel. The following year the coun- try begun to settle up, principally with people from Oregon. When Mrs. Beach came to Whit- man county there was not a church building north of Snake river and not more than one religious organization represented in that ~,ast 'territory~ There were a few mnall log or hox school houses and the farm houses were mostly built of logs. Mrs. Beach lived to see the pa~using of the log homes of the pioneers and in their Olace the building of commodious farm homes; saw the wonderful bunch grass hills cultivated and planted to orchards and fields of wav- ing grain; saw the many hamlets grow into substantial towns and cit- ies and the log school houses sup- planted by modern educational insti- tutions. Durtng her life the vari- ous religious organizations entered the territory and now worship in im- posing church buildings. Recently Mrs. Beach remarked that in the early days she had never ex- pected to see a railroad built through the Palouse country, but had lived to see two railroads built between her honse and barn~the Northern Pacific and the Spokane & Inland. Dr. Fitch pa~sed away in Califor- nia in February, 1885 and in June, (Continued on page ten) WORK TOG~TH'gR FOR HIGHWAY commin Re om louse of One Accord. At the weekly hmcheon of the chamber of commerce Saturday, R. L. Smith and A. P. Murray, of-the highway committee, told of the trip of the Palouse committee to Pull- man on Tuesday, when road mat- ters were discussed at the regular meeting af the Pullman chamber. The two communities are heartily in accord in the movement for an early completion of th~ Inland Em- pire highway through to Pullman. The matter of issuing some ad- vertising matter to be sent out in answer to inquiries regarding the Palouse country and the Palouse dis- trict in particular, was brought up and discussed at some length and the advertising committee instructed to bring some definite plans before the chamber. Senator R. C. ~McCroskey stated that Commissioner J. B. Sanborn. who was to have been present at the meeting, had been called to Spokane to meet Governor Hart and his party who were then touring the east part of the state inspecing the highways. Mr. McCroskey said that Mr. Sanborn would visit Palouse at an early date. He" urged that right of way south to Pullman be secured at once. President J. C. Northrup of the chamber named as a committee to prepare fitting resolutions express- ing the sentiment of the members at the death of Mrs. M..E. Beach, and offering the sympathy of the or- ganization to the family, Chas. M Mecklem, G. D. Klncaid and R. L Smith. Operetta at Potlatch.

MUST HAVE LICENSE TO HUNT OR FISH Whitman County Game Comm~m'one~ Lays Down Rules--Fish for l~louse River, The hunter or fisherman who is not properly armed with a current license in Whitman county tht8 year will have to pay the penalty, according to the declaration of the Whitman county game commission, which was in session at Colfax Tuesday evening, May 3. The commission is composed of H. Wltte, Oakesdale; C. M. Meek- lem, of Palouse; Dr, J. Floyd Ti~.ft/ whom Colfax, all of were present the meeting, as was H. W. Terhu/~e and W. R. Heglar of St. John, county game warden and chief deputy, re- spectively. Mr. Terhune was reappointed game warden for the remainder of the cur- rent year. The commission took up the matter of appointing deputies nominated by the various sportsmen's organlations of the county. It is ex- pected that at least fifty deputies will be in the field, all of whom will be supplied with a commission and an official badge. The commission and the warden are determined to see that the fish and game laws are enforced to the letter. Sportsmen's organizations have al- ready been formed in Pullman. La- Crosse, Palouse and Oakesdale. an:l are being perfectect iu Colfax. St. John. Tekoa, Thornton and GarField. When these organizations are all per- fected it is the plan to form a county sportsmen's association composed of elected members of each local associa- tion. The commission voted to cooperate ~with Spokane county in the exchange of game warden appointments so ~hat ill the future an offender in Whitman county may be apprehended by a Whitman county deputy, even though" the culprit should flee to Spo- kane county, and. vice versa. It was recommended that "open season" on Hungarians be maintain- ed throughout the month of October, and closed during the entire year on all other game, this may be modified somewhat before the official publi- cation of the season is made. The bag limit is fixed at five per day or twenty-five per calendar wetk. MAY 13, 1991. IIOI D PRF CitER IOHO[D M EIING$ H. K WII,I[~E OF C/~II~RJi~ WILL BF.~IN SERIES OF EVAN- GF.JJSTIC MEETING8 AT CHRIS- TIAN OHURCIL The most extensive evangelistic effort attempted in Palouse in a num- ber of years will be carried forth in the Christian church, beginning Fri- day evening, May 20, and continuing indefinitely. The meeting will be conducted by the Hey. H. E. Wilhite of Los Angeles, California, assisted by Mrs. Wilhite and P. O. Gates, the latter the chorus leader. The arrangements for the meeting were made with Hey. Wllhite some six months ago, immediately after his successful meeting at Moscow which resulted in the addition of more than 150 persons to the church at that place. He is known as one of the strongest men in the work in the west, having held successful meeting~ at many points In Washington and Idaho. The greater part of his work, however, has been done tn California. He is noted especially for his ability as a pulpit orator. Mr. Gates is a chorus leader of great ability and the two men have worked together in many meetings. Roy. Wilhite is expected to ar- rive here early next week to pre- pare for the meeting. Because of the functions in connection with the high school commencement it was thought best to defer opening the meeting until Friday. The pres- ent season of the year was selected by the congregation because of the fact that seeding will, have been practically completed in the district and the roads will permit the use of automobiles.
