Largely patronized by state legisla-  tors, the Olympian hotel, principal hostelry of Olympia, will be improved within the next year with an expendi- ture of about $100,000. The new Lewis county courthouse in Chehalis was formally dedicated with mayors of tiearby cities and rep- resentatives of farm organizations and commercial clubs as guests. The cornerstone of the new Masonic temple at Pe Ell was laid Saturday evening by Walter F. Meier, master of the Masonic grand lodge, assisted by other grand lodge officers. A. V.

An excursion to the Grand coulee-is being planned by Otis W. Freeman of the Cheney Normal School for his class in geology and any others who are interested in such a trip. The trip will take place July 8, 9 and 10. Walla Walls firms selling farming machinery were practically a unit in declaring that sales have been heavier than for years. The demand for mow- lug machines, binders, etc., is much larger than last year and sales of threshing machines have almost dou- bled. Tmrty per cent cut in fire insur- ance rates on mercantile buildings, hospitals and apartment houses in Yakima has been announced by the insurance companies' state rating bu. ! reath but it is stated that rates, on other classes of structtlres may be raised. An almost unanimous vote was clmt by Quinault Indians attending the an- ntml tribe council at Taholah to ex- clude allwhite fishermen from watcr within the Quinauit reservation. "Phe decision will not be binding until sanc- tioned by the federal bureau of-Indian affairs. t L. L.

Mrs. Hulda Klager of Woodland, who has gained fame by her creations of new and unusual lilacs, has won national recognition by her culture of ,. flowers.

Skaggs, Everett, says he l: considering entering the 1928 contes for the democratic nomination for gov ernor. Slot machines and other gambling devices are doomed to extinction in Grays Harbor county, according to an edict issued by Prosecuting Attorney Wade. Mr. Wade has given the sher- iff's force instruction to take immedi- ate steps to put all gambling devices out of business. Nearly $2,000,000 have been spent in Venatchee since June, 1926, for new houses, commercial buildings an(i alterations, according to figures mad public by the city engineer. Of this amount about $400,000 has gone fo new homes, the same for businessi buildings, and about $200,000 for alteri aliens. Sixty-seven Vancouver business men have signed a guarantee that the coun- ty will not be taxed for the cost of m election to determine whether the peo- ple of Clark county are willing to seli the county's share of the interstate bridge to the state for $250,000 as pro- vided for in a bill approved by the last legislature. Due to the fact that C. Divine, who for some time past has been town mar shal of Pe Ell, failed to appear for duty, Russell Carmichael has been ap- pointed to the position. Divine's whereabouts is unknown. He did not resign his position, at least no resigna- tion was filed with Mrs. Hazel M. Sur- ber, city clerk. Indications are for a nearly norms! crop of wheat or about 4,500,000 bush els in Walls Walls county, according to grainmen. Recent rains have in- creased the yield on an average of five bushels to an acre. Growers, who thought they had sufficient sacks have been coming in since the rain and ordering more. Sacks are 14 cents. Four hundred and seventy-two cows under test during May by the Yaktma Cow Testing association averaged 842 pounds of milk and 29.4 pounds of but- terfat. One hundred and thirty-two cows produced over forty pounds of butterfat each and fifty-one produced over fifty pounds each. The highest herd record was made'by G. A. Smith of Greenvalley, with an average of 44.2 pounds of butterfat per cow. A complaint charging forgery with intent to defraud was filed with the United States commissioner in Taco- ma against L. G. Dowell, who recently retired as auditing accountant for Ad- jutant-General Maurtce Thompson of the Washington national guard. The action followed a report filed by Adju- tant-General Thompson with A. R. Gardner, state director of efficiency, at Olympia, which held that a short- age of $1518.77 had been discovered in the accounts of the chief auditor. A hearing will be held at Lea;en- worth July 22 by the department of public works, representing the inter- state commerce commission, to deter- mine the application of the Great Northern Railroad company, which seeks to reconstruct its line in the Cascades between Peshastiu and Win- ston, a distance of about 17 miles. This will be of vast importance to the Leavenworth vicinity, as the railroad is straightening out its line through the mountains, and it may eventually mean abandoning Leavenworth as a division point for the company. In anticipation of the dedication of the $6,500,000 new legislative building, tentatively scheduled for the latter part of August, Governor Hartley has made public his appointments to the dedication committee. By congres- sional districts of the state, the gov- ernor's appointments were: First dis- trict, Rolland H. Denny of Seattle; ]second district, Mrs. Hugh Eldridge of Bellingham; third district, James McCormack of Tacoma; fourth dis- trict, John Ankeny of Walla Walla, and fifth district, George Turner of Spokane. Senator P. H. Carlyon of Olympia was designated by the execu- tive to be a member-at-large of the committee. After holding that the majority of the state highway committee had the right to elect the chairman and secre- tary of the committee, the supreme court apparently reversed itself by dismissing the qno warranto proceed- ings by which C. W. Clausen, state auditor, sought to assert his right to the chairmanship by election, and George T. McCoy similarly claimed the secretaryship. In dismissing the proceedings the court held that it lacked Jurisdiction because the chair- manship and secretaryship of the committee were ex-officio pomitions and not state offices. The effect of the Aecision .is to leave the highway committee organlzation as tgh in the , air as ever, even though it is specifi- cally stated that the majority should rule. Eight hogs were killed and poles were piled high on the Northern Pa- cific grade crossing when a stock car loaded with hogs and a flat car loaded with poles on the freight, Lowiston to Spokane, left the rails near the ar- mory in Pullman. The Columbia river has been threat- ening to break over the river road near the ,Northern Pacific railway bridge at Kennewick. The effect of such an overflow would mean a tem- porary closing of the toll bridge be- ween Kennewick and Passe. o, HONOR ROLLS OF HIGH AND GRADE SCHOOLS, 1926-2T I'1 MONROE GRADE SCHOOLS Students Neither Absent or Tardy During 1926-27 PARK PLACE Estelle Keifer Room One; Grades One and Two Harvey Ren Jeunesse Bartholomew Jeanette Defeyter Helen Dirks Alice Klein Mrs. McCormick Everett Tolette o Alvin Klein Alma DaM Room Two; Grades Three and Four Catherine Law George Helm Tom Law Room Three; Grades Five and Six Myrtle Klein Eleanor Law B.
