Just what the meaning of the sur-j Palouse has waited and Just now, vey is no one is able to find out, but i as this promise is about to be a member of the chamber of cornI fulfilled, to have the road suddenly meres talked with Mr. McKay, the contractor that is constructing the highway, and. he stated that his con- tract called for the completion of the highway up to the Inland tracks north of town, and that he had no knowledge of any other plans, al- though he said he knew the new sur- vey had been made, but he thought that the engineers had mapped out this route so that if anything came up that would cause them to abandon the old plan they would have a sur- vey mapped out for a possible new route. This statement from Mr. McKay put the minds of the business wen at rest concerning the road being routed ,uv way but through Palouse. bur ~t seems that the sta~e would not gb to the expense of sending a surveying crew here and making a survey Just for the sake of having a pretty blue nrint to look at, and to some men it ha§ a sinister significance. The state the matter of roads. No town of its size in the county has as poor roads, but promises from officials have kept her silent these many years. She has watched the awarding of roads to other towns and hamlets and held her peace, because she had been tel by the officials: "We can't get around to you Just now. but if you will let us complete our present program then we will get around to you and put a veered off just sufficiently to miss this city is a little too much for the citizens of Palouse to bear. She will hold her peace no longer. Much property has been improved and businesses established on the strength of the promise of a state road through the city and it would mean a great loss to Palouse should the road follow the new survey. A committee should be appointed to con- fer with the highway officials for the purpose of clinching the proposition of a road through town, and if we can aid or support the highway depart- ment in any way to offer to do so. If we can eliminate a grade for the state it is up to us to do it, or If wo can provide a less expensive route through town we must do it, but by all means we must not allow the road to be located according to the new survey. Palouse has a future. We must stay on the map and we must have our share of road improvements. I moody and dreamy.

Below is an itemized statement of the receipts and expenditures of the committee who engineered the 4th of July celebration staged in Palouse this year. The committee is to he con- gratulated on being able to put on a three-day celebration and come out with a surplus. Following are the re- ceipts and disbursements: Rooipts. Subscriptions ............. $482.00 Concessions .............. 121.50 Dance ................... 280.20 Lumber sold ............... 4.40 Returnt Part of Plunder. The week before the Fourth a thief entered $ake DeWeese's home while the family was away and took $10 from a dresser drawer, leaving a gold watch which was lying near. A few days later he entered the house again and took the watch, along with some other jewelry. It seems that either his conscience was hurting him or else he became alarmed because the owner was close on his track, for some time during Sunday he re- turned the larger part of the jewelry. Sheriff William Cole has been working on the case and no doubt he was on the thief's track so closely .~ that he thought best to return enough of the plunder to silence Mr. DeWeese. Mr. DeWeeso says, however, that the Jewelry he eared most for has not yet been returned. "I am very thankful to recover the lost articles," said Mr. DeWeese, "but I wis~l the thief would bring back the rest/' / t Yet to live.
