MANY PAY LAST TRIBUTE TO PIONEER

Ellensburg has witnessed few larger funerals than that of John P. CLERF, which was held at the Catholic church last Sunday afternoon.
The attendance represented town and country and revealed the place Mr. CLERF occupied in the community. Father SWEENS conducted the
services and the church was inadequate to hold those who would have heard him. The cortège to the Catholic cemetery was a very long one. A brief announcement of the death and burial of this man does not do him justice, for Mr. CLERF was in many ways a remarkable man. A
German, he mastered the language of his adopted country, and by his superior natural talents he mounted upwards, attaining a success that
few native born men achieve. He was essentially a business man, and was of the kind of men who "do things". He seemed not to know the
meaning of the word failure, and as a result, he generally achieved his aims. That he obtained wealth, with the qualifications he possessed
is not at all remarkable, and in his death one of our most capable business men is removed.

AN OLD MAN WAS PROBABLY MURDERED

Charles SMITH, an old man of 80, was found in his shack near the Ellensburg creamery last Saturday morning with a number of bruises on
his head and weak from loss of blood. He was still conscious and said he had been beaten but could not tell by whom. It was not at first
believed he was seriously injured, but he died Monday evening. The clue to his assailant is slim, as it is known the old man was drinking and had some companions with him, and it is possible that
his death was the result of a drunken brawl. SMITH was a section man and lived in a beastly fashion in a shack, spending more than he made,
it is said, for liquor. The officers are still working on the case.

AN ELLENSBURG GIRL MAKES FINE RECORD

The many friends here of Miss Jasmine BRITTON will be delighted to learn that she captured the degree of Bachelor of Arts at Smith
college, Northampton, Mass... Although she registered as from Catalla, Alaska, where her father lives, Ellensburg can consistently claim her,
as it was here she attended school for years, and got started on her successful career... Miss BRITTON will spend the summer or a portion of
it, here with her aunt, Miss L. H. WHEELER.

LAST OF THE NORMAL YEAR

The exercises incident to the ending of the present school year of the normal have, as usual, been well attended and enjoyed... The
address of Rev. Alfred MARTIN was a finished effort and was a valuable feature. The reception given by Prof. and Mrs. WILSON to the faculty
and senior class at their home was a charming affair ... The baccalaureate address of Henry L. SOUTHWICK of Boston in the auditorium... was
listened to by a very large audience... In addition to a pleasing appearance, the speaker has a fine voice which he uses most effectively ...

finest in central Washington...

THE GRIND OF THE COUNCIL

At the meeting of the city council last Monday evening, an adjournment was taken until Tuesday, after Wm. GILLIAM had been confirmed as
extra policeman and similar acts were taken in regard to Chris HANSEN, appointed street commissioner and fire engineer. A compromise of the threatened damage suit of the widow of James MALLON, who recently fell on the sidewalk and died soon afterward, was
