The Pasco Base Ball Club, Backed Up
By 1 Large Crowd of Kootevs and
the Keuuewirk Brass Band, Win
Uihhl Game at Prosser Sunday.
Sunday the Pasco b ill team
met the Prosser aggregation on the
latter's home grounds and put them
to the bad by a score ot 4 to 1.
We sprung a new deal 011 them
and it took some of the wind out ol
their sails. Heretofore when a
team visited a town for the purpose
of playing a game they were
companied by a few enthusiasts
and were at the mercy of the root
ers of the home team, and it is a
well known fact that no matter
how hospitable the home team and
the rooters may be before and after
the game, all friendship ceases
when the umpire says "Play ball."
■Said y when time was called
Pasco had about as many support
ers on the ground as the home fel
lows, and they were all good husky
rooters, at that. Kennewick has
decided that one good team in the
Twin Cities is enough, and so we
got our band together and headed
1 delegation of about seventy-five
fans to gojto Prosser and do what
we could to bring victory to the
visiting team. Pasco also sent a
larger delegation than usually fol-

lows a ball team, and when we all
poured out of the train to the stir
ring strains of one of Sousa's popu
lar marches by the band, the na
tives were so bidly surprised that
they did not recover till the score
keeper told them what had hap
pened.
And the way it happened! Well,
we don't want to go into details.
The Prosser boys are good fallows
and treated us right, and have
promised to come down here and
play a game. Details might not
look good to them in cold type.
Tiie score tells a sad enough tale.
Both teams played good ball and
everybody got the worth of their
money except a few who thought
a little bet on Prosser would be
easy money.
The Pasco boys have asked us to
extend to the band boys and the
citizens of Kennewick their heart
iest thanks for the support given
them, and have promised to piay
part of their home games on a Ken
newick diamond.
Will Have Earliest Berries.
It is the general opinion of all
the expert strawberry growers of
the valley that the first berries will
go on the market between the otli
and iothof May, according to the
weather conditions from now on
Last year the first berries were
marketed 011 the 10 th. Reports
from all over this state and Oregon
say that it will be impossible to
have berries from other districts 011
the market betore the isth or 20th
of May. This will give us from
five to ten days lead over our com
petitors and our] berries will bring
prices equal to, if not higher than
last year. Several growers report
bei ries of considerable size 011 their
vines now and say the crop will go
beyond expectations in magnitude.
Noble and Party Here.
Chief Engineer Mottle and party
consisting of A. P. Davis, I). C, Henny
and A..1, Wiley were here last night.
They have been Icoking over the val
ley in connection with irrigation pro
jects. They took the train yesterday
for this place from lviona and from
that we suppose they have been giving
the Led better proposition some atten
tion as that is the only scheme that;
affects that part of the country. They j
went over to Pasco this morning and j
will go to Council where they hold a j
meeting today to discuss the Palouse-
Pasco project.
A- N. Short for Deputy Marshal.
It is understood that George H.
I>aker. the new United States mar
shal for the eastern district of
Washington, will reappoint Deputy
U. S. Marshal A. X. Short. Xo
deputy will be appointed for Walla
j Walla county, as one is not often
needed in that district. The rea
sons for a deputy in Yakima is on
account of frequent disturbances
on the Yakima Indian reservation,
particularly on account of the men
who sell whisky to the Indians.—

Frost Kihs Southern Fruit.
Reports from many sections of It e
east and some in the south indicate
that frost did tremendous damage
to the fruit and vegetable crop gen
erally. Cherries, plums, apples,
pears and peaches suffered greatly,
the blossoms being stripped trom
the trees.
Moral: If you want to make a |
success of fruit raising come to |
Kennewick where we never have i
frost that kills out tha fruit crops. |
This is a fruit country.
