IT WAS A FAST
BASE BALL GAME
U. of I. Taken into Camp to
the Tune of 3 to 2
by the W. S. C
The first scrap of the season be*
tweeo those old time rivals, tin' I.
of I. and W. S. C. base ball teams,
was one that made tho hair of the
rooter raise with every play, for it
was a fierce contest from start, to
finish, and great joy filled the
Pullman camp when the olose of
the 9th inning showed a score of 3
to 2 in the fanners' favor.
The game was played in Moscow
Wednesday afternoon, and was wit
nessed by a large attendance from
Pullman and Moscow. Both teams
are evenly matched. Brilliant
playing gave the rooters an oppor
tunity to keep up the excitement
with college yells. The greatest
sensation of the game was the last
score for the university by Holohan
in the ninth inning. Holohan in
| leaving first base, never stopped
j running until he safely crossed the
! home plate, although he was re
peatedly chased back and forth, be
tween second ami third and be
tween third and home. Washing
ton college made one earned run.
land the other two scores were made
! on errors.
Waller pitched for Washingtoi
[and was hit on the head by a bal
thrown by Holohan to first bast
and was knocked down, but soon
revived and stayed in the game.
Middleton, the pitcher for the uni
versity, was easiiy the star player,
and in three different innings
struck out two batters in each
while two college players were on
bases each time. Washington sum
mary: Errors 4, hits 7, runs 2.

hits 7, runs 2. Barteries —College,

Whitman County has 35,000 People
Whitman county Ins enjoyed a steamy
and rapid growth curing the past five
years and there is a strong probability
thai this county will be advanced to a
higher class wheu the census now being
taken is completed. In 1900 the county
had a population of 25,360, an shown by
the Federal census taken that year. The
county commissioners ordered a census
taken by the county assessor and li is
his deputies thisl year. The work is not
nearly completed, but if the entire coun
ty has kept pace with several of the
towns, it is thought the population of the
county will reach 35,000, which will ad
vance, the classification of the county
and''raise the salaries of all county
i The census of only a few towns has
been completed, but these show marked
growth in population in the live years
since the federal census was taken. Th»
census of Col fax has not been completed
but ii is» a so nearly done that a close es
timate of the population can be made.
In round numbers the town has 2900
population, as compared with 2121 in
1900. This is a gain of 779, or more than
•10 per cent in 5 years.
Tekoa shows a. splendid growth. The
census of Tekoa has been completed and
shows that, the town has a population of
1310, as compared with 717 in 1900. This
is. an increase of 293, or more than 75
per cent in five years.
St. John has a population of 575. This
town was not incorporated in 1900, but
was a little village of probably 150 in
, habitants. The increase there has been
almost 400 per oent. St. John is. located
in the midst of what was considered a
grazing section until a few years ago.
■ Recently it has been known that the
- country surrounding the town is one of
the best wheat growing sections in the
state, and the town has made no more
rapid improvement than the surround
ii A complete census of Culton has been
[1 returned by \V. H. Simpson, the Held
( , deputy assessor. This shows a popula
tion of 326, as against 261 in 1900. This.
is ah increase of 74, or almost 80 per
■ cent in five years.
Garfield has 917 inhabitants, as com
, pared with 697 in 1900. This is an in
■ crease of 220, or nearly .'!() per cent.
The census of Pullman has not yet
been completed, but the figures will show
1 a more rapid growth than in any other
portion of the county.
