Return to County Newspapers



Jerry HORGAN, a well known character around town, died very suddenly in his room in a lodging house last Sunday, supposedly of apoplexy.

CAPITOLIANS

W. B. PRICE pulled through after all. He conceded his own election at 2 o'clock this morning. The large residence which C. B. NORRIS is building on Third and Sprague streets is rapidly assuming shape. The hay dealers are unable to get cars enough to haul all the product away and the big warehouses are still bulging. The county commissioners have entered into a contract with E. C. SUITER, representing an acetylene gas company, to light the poor farm
buildings. C. C. DUPEE is equipping a steam laundry in the brick building on Pine street, known as the OLDHAM shop. He expects to have it in
operation by the middle of the month. Agent PALMER is a more popular man than he was a month ago, all because he has been receiving coal, and consequently was able to deliver
more than he has been. There are now 72 more pupils in the public schools here than there were last year, not taking into account the normal. This amounts to
two average rooms, and is a good indication of the growth of the town. The brickwork of the new SMITHSON building is nearing completion. The front of the old building has been merged with that of the new
one, the whole making a large, attractive and substantial business block. Kind hearted people have been assisting a woman and several children in the north end, across the creek, who have been deserted by the
husband and father. The Capital learns that more help is needed and the case is a deserving one. The Bellingham Herald of recent date says KLEINBERG Bros. have sold the Hanna block in that city ... for $45,000. It is one of the
fine properties of that town and it is understood that the Ellensburg men realized handsomely on their investment. KOEPKE & SHOUDY have sold their grocery business to the John A. SHOUDY Co., Incorporated. Mr. KOEPKE will soon leave for California
where he will reside. John A. SHOUDY is the manager of the new corporation.

SUDDEN DEATH SHOCKS OUR COMMUNITY

The sudden death of H. F. NICHOLS at Yakima last Thursday evening came as an awful shock to his many friends here, many of whom had
shaken his hand on the streets in our town 48 hours before, when he was visiting acquaintances here with his family. He was instantaneously
stricken with apoplexy and never spoke a word after being stricken. The body was brought here and buried from the Episcopal church Saturday
afternoon. Mr. NICHOLS was 41 years of age. Nearly three years ago he came here as agent for the Northern Pacific, a position he filled with
ability and a courtesy that won him many friends. On being appointed receiver of the United States Land Office at Yakima a few months ago,
he moved there and had purchased a residence. He leaves a mother, wife, and two young daughters, and to them in their great grief goes out
the deepest sympathy of all who knew him. He was a devoted son, an ideal husband and an affectionate father, and the community has
sustained a distinct loss by his death.

AN OLD TIMER WILL ENJOY RETIREMENT

This item from a Wenatchee paper will be of interest to old settlers here, as Mr. MILLER was for many years a resident of Kittitas and
was well known to almost every man within its borders: "Mr. and Mrs. Philip MILLER left Monday for Seattle to take up their residence in that city. Their home will be 223 First avenue west.
Philip MILLER has had a continuous residence in this valley since 1873 and until this year has been very actively engaged with his large
holdings in this valley. This spring, however, he sold most of his land and cut loose from the greater part of his responsibilities and
from now on will take life easy..."

NOTES OF THE STATE NORMAL SCHOOL

...This week Miss GRUPE, head of the training department, entertained the students with two very interesting talks on New York city. The normal orchestra is well organized and practices every Monday evening under the direction of Miss SABELWITZ... Miss Lena LANDON and Miss Myrtle PECK went to Bellingham as delegates from the normal YWCA to the association convention... ... New students are still registering. Two have been added in the past week, brining the number up to 197.

NEW COAL MINE WILL BE OPENED SOON

The drilling and prospecting for coal which has been carried on for the past six months by the Golden Gate Mining and Development Co.,
has resulted in the company finding and getting possession of eighty acres of land carrying a vein of coal eight feet thick and of unknown
width though traced for several hundred feet, of a character superior to the Roslyn and Cle Elum coal, which has a reputation of being the
best steam coal procurable anywhere west of the Rocky mountains. The coal was discovered but a few days ago by the manager of the Gold Gate
company while personally prospecting in the vicinity near where the company has been operating a drill all summer. The deposit is but
a mile northeast of Easton on the main line of the N. P. Ry... --Cle Elum Echo

A COMPLETE SIGNAL SERVICE

Ellensburg is now in a position to get the sharpest kind of a corner on the weather as we now have all the apparatus for doing the work
of first class meteorological studies, thanks to the enterprise and genius of Prof. BEVIS of the department of science at the state normal
school. Persons passing the normal building may now see an anemometer revolving on top of the structure. This is the instrument that
records the velocity of the wind, the recording is done by electricity, Prof. BEVIS' own contrivance... In a small building north of the
normal, specialty construction on government plans, has been installed a rain gauge ... Here also are the self-recording maximum and minimum
thermometers... There is also a wet and dry bulb thermometer, for ascertaining the humidity and dewpoint, and there is a barometer for
showing the atmospheric pressure... In the near future, Prof. BEVIS will be prepared to display signal flags, whereby the people will be
informed of coming changes in the weather ...
