PROVISIONS FOR SAN
The promptness of Pullman
in meeting the call for assist
ance was exemplified this
morning when a car of flour
and another of potatoes were
sent to the stricken city of
Governor Mead wired May
or Staley of the call for pro
visions for the 300,000 suffer
ers, and the following char
acteristic reply was soon sent
over the wire:
Hon. A. E. Mead,
Ten minutes after receipt
of your telegram Pullman
citizens, through Pullman
Club, are loading -two cars
provisions which go out today
to Mayor _ Schmidt,-- ot 3an
D. F. Staley,
The Pullman spirit, which is but
nother way of spelling that unity of
ction that can enter into matters of a
jmmon interest, was again well dem
istrated when Mayor Staley received
telegram from Governor Mead an-
Hineing the pressing need of the San
rancisco sufferers, and asking dona
ons from our people. The ink on
le telegram was hardly dry before
te mayor had gathered together a
immittee of citizens, and it was de-
I ded to immediately ship out a car
<■ ad of Pullman flour, and the flour
( ill go forward today. The railroad
I mpanies have agreed to make free
tipment of the flour, and to give all
1 mations right of way and to hurry
em to their destination.
In times of great calamity the
lality of human sympathy is always
own at its best. It is affecting to
ad of the generous and wide spread
aponse of the country to the needs of
ricken San Francisco. Western
ties and towns, almost without ex- !
ption, and the national government,
c sending money, shelter and food
ppließ to the homeless and hungry
pulation of the city that was. To
d in the transportation of supplies
c O. R. & N. and Southern Pacific
lilways offer to carry free of charge
y supplies consigned to the San
ancisco relief committee.
A number of Pullman people were
or near San Francisco during the'
cent terrible disaster which has ;
ertaken that city. Mr. and Mrs. I
S. Burgan were due in SanFrancis-'
about the time of the earthquake,
t fortunately for them they did not
ach the city. They are now at Los
-igeles, whch has experienced several
ocks, but no damage was done.
rs. Mattie Anderson is about 100
lea south of the city and Dr. Wilson
in Frisco, probably busily engaged
relief work. Up to the time of go
? to press no word had been received
Today Pullman will entertain the
itors of Whitman County, and what
ig not the least important feature of
the coming of the newspaper fraternity
is the fact that the knighta of the quill
will be accompanied by their families.
Many of these newspaper workers,
while neighbors of Pullman are mak
ing their first visit to the Artesian
City, of which they have heard much,
and in which all have shown a most
friendly interest. Pullman greets her
guests with a welcome that comes from
the heart of everyone of our 3000 peo
Next Tuesday is park day. You
all know what that means, and your
duty is plain. Be at the city park
bright and early with the proper im
plement of warfare and the Pullman
Pullman citizens have some stren
uous personal or political differences,
but you want to get out of the way
when they are coming with a matter
of common interest in tow.
Park day, Tuesday, April 24th.
WHEN GREEK MEETS GREEK.
Every springtime about the time the
bloom is coming on the apple tree
little knots of men who often show
the wear and tear of time and tide can
be seen gathering on the street corners
bemoaning the fact that there has
been a great decadence in baseball
since they left the diamond.
i his bemoaning of the past week
has resulted in trouble for Pullman,
for the "fats" and the "leans" aro
going to play.
Of course, the people would turn
out to see this game anyway, but as
an evidence of good faith, and that
neither fat nor lean may professional
ize himself by accepting money should
there be gate receipts to divide, all
the money taken in at the gate is to
be turned over to the park commission
to use in improving the city park. It
is expected that quite a sum will be
realized, as 1000 tickets will be sold
at 25cts each, and every one who re
fu es to buy a ticket will be fined four
The game will be played on Rogers
field, at two o'clock, and will be pre
ceded by a grand with emphasis on
the grand—street parade.

dless ambition are as follows:

ROSCIAN OPERA COMPANY.
The Roscian Opera Company, one of
the most notable aggregations to ap
pear here this season, will be at the
auditorium next Tuesday and Wednes
day evenings. In speaking of this
company the Portland Telegram has
"If the majority of the $1.50 and
even $2 musical attractions which come
to Portland had as many good voices
aa were found in the Roacian Opera
Company at the Marquam Grand last
night, the public would be thankful
for something besides a collection of
beautiful scenery. At popular prices,
the Roseian Opera Company gives a
Jig return for the money. Unlike
the general run of alleged musical
companies it really depends on the
vocal efforts of its members to make
good, and, for its size, it gives a mar
veolus quantity of harmony. 'El Cap
itan,' the Sousa comic opera, was
used to open the engagement last even
ing, and it served to introduce one of
the best tenors this town has listened
to this season. F. W. Walters possess
es this tenor, and his clear notes, with
a high range and distinct delivery of
words, won for h;m several encores
every time he had a solo. Miss Hazel
Davenport, who played Estrelda, ex
hibited one of the hghest sopranos of
the year. In addition to this she was
a hard worker and did everything poi
sible to throw ginger into the enter
tainment. Claude Amsden, the lead
ing comedian, who had the role of El
Capitan, carries a basso voice with
him and a fund of humor. Hi 1 Hard

- The Herald man has had all kinds
of fishing trips; he has been on horse
back, afoot, by wagon, train, and sev
eral other ways, but the edition de lux
of a trip was commenced when Jesse
Burgan and his beautiful 16-horse pow
er Reo automobile stopped at the edi
torial front gate and we joined Mr.
Burgan and Messrs. Duncan and Aus
tin with Rock Creek as the destina
tion. It was at about five o'clock on
such a morning as must have affected
Col. Sapp when he got the inspiration
for that oration on the "rising of the
sun of peace and happiness and pros
perity over Palouse hills." Endicott
was made in time for an early break
fast, the 35 miles whizzing past with
delightful rapidity. Rock Creek was
soon in view, and while the fishing
demonstrated that it is not all of fish
ing to fish, the population of the creek
was reduced somewhat. Toward even
ing the homeward trip was commenced,
and after a quick run to Endicott the
auto was housed for the night, and the
run home made the following morn
ing. The trip had demonstrated the
strength and reliability of the Reo,
and that Mr. Burgan is a chauffeur of
coolness and ability. The run of
about 55 miles home was made in a
running time of about three and one
half hours, distance being annihilated
by the modern auto.
—The baseball aggregation from
Butte defeated the college team in a
ragged game yestreday to the tune of
18-9. Both sides played school boy
ball, the miners hammering out nine
runs the first inning and the collegians
getting six the same inning. Every
body hit the ball and three home runs
went down in the score bock, one of
them being made by Capt. Brown of
the State College, who drove out the
second ball pitched over the plate.

to the West side to inspect hop condi
