This was a rank injustice and a few years ago Spokane, wlth the cooperation of other inland Empire towns, secured a readiu'~tmeut of freight, rates, so this injustice no hmger existed. The people of Spo- l~ane celebrated thelr victory at the time with jubilant demonstrations. Recently the leading tran,~conti- neural lines have been working to in- duce the interstate commissiou to per- mit thorn to take up the old rates once more. Various Inland Empire towns are protesting agains this move and have formed an as,~;oc!atiou to combat any move on ~he part of the railroads that will put the rater- mountain territory under a hand'cap in competing with ,coast cities, Produce raised here will be ship- )ed out at greater expense if the old ates become effective and likewise :ommodities that are brought here will necessarily be higher on account of the increased freight, consequen:ly all the leading towns in the Inlaud Empire are fighting any move that "~, . ~ " ' ~.S~ ~-ill brzug ahout tln~, change, lh efforts are beingmadethrou gh the commercial clubs of the different towns and it is to be hoped that they will be sucessful in forestalling this change.

Mr. Deleplne spoke in be- half of the flour campaign for the re- ief of the starving Armenians. He was followed by A. P. Murray, who. having relatives working with the Near East relief in Armenia, had much information which they had given him first hand. A committee having i~reviously been appointed 'the chamber of commerce left it to the committee to raise the $200 assigned to Palouse. Superh~tendent Ellis Moves to Colfax. H. A. Ellis, who has been superin- tendent of the Palouse schools for the )ast year, moved hls family to Colfax S.qturday preparatory to assumiUg hi~ duties as county school superintend- ent September 1. Mr, Ellis has been one of the strongest administrators of school affairs Palouse has ever had ~nd will fill the office of executive of the county schools in a credita- ble reacher.

They returned quantities of wheat on hand from last 6o,000 hushels of last year's crop and it would seeul as though the prices quoted by Mr. Robinson are a little iflgh, considering the amount of wheat held over from last year. How- e~'.r, it is assulne(l that he knows what be is talking about, and it is hoped that his figures are no exagger- ation. With the present outlook for an Immense crop and prices ranging Tuesday. Church Gives Picmc. The Holy Trinity Episcopal church held a picnic on the river east of town Monday evenlug. Seventy-two )eople were present, including sev- eral out of town members of the church. A i)icnlc supper was served Pioneer Enjoys Picnic, J. W Shreve reports that he en- joyed the Pioneers' pienlc at Pulhnan last week immensely. He said the from 95 cents to $1 prospects are ex- cellenl for great prosperity in the ['alouse country, Never in the Pc- louse country was there a better pros- pect than now. and this condition does not only exist locally, but re- por~s from all parts of the state in- dicate a bounteous harvest. With prices quoted as above, the entire northwest will be in such a state of prosperity as was not dreamed of when wheat was up to $2 a bushel and more. With prospects of a good crop. th(~ price good, and plenty nf representation from Palouse was labor waiting for the harvest to open small this year.
