UP-TO-DATE SPORTING NEWS WASHINGTON MEET 60ES TO SEATTLE WHITMAN CANNOT GUARANTEE ENOUGH MONEY TO SATISFY UNIVERSITY. Coach Blanchard Gives Call for Track Men to Show up With Spiked Shoes. Instead of the Whitman-Washington track meet being held in this city as previously arranged, in all probability this event will be pulled off in Seattle. The board of control of the state uni versity has had this matter under con sideration for some time and when Whitman offered a sum which was not considered large enough to meet all the expenses of the "U" trip here, they ar ranged to hold the meet on the Sound Although the executive committee a*. Whitman has r.ot met and discussed this subject, it is more than likely that it will agree with the university men. In case the track meet is held in Seat- tie, a meet with the University of Idaho boys will be arranged for this city on May 8 which will give the peo ple here an opportunity to see the local athletes in action. Whitman met Washington on her own grounds last year and it is Wash ington's turn to meet the Missionaries in Wfcilla Walla. The contention of the "U" boys, however, is, that if the meet is held in Seattle, it will receive far better support. It is also claimed that Whitman will not guarantee enough money to pay the expenses of the men from ttie coast, these facts taken to gether. causing the discussion. Washington promises to have a splen did team this season and although the material is not brilliant, under the tute lage of Physical Director D. C. Hall, great things may be expected from them. Whitman is not so far behind in this respect either and already the old and the new men have been ordered out to start in practice for this year's work.

The. official date for appearing at headquarters, is March 25, but several of the old favorites have already ar rived and the others will drift in as they please. Ther e is always a rush from March 20 to March 25, and this will undoubtedly be the case this year. Those who are employed regularly do not leave until the big date is near at hand.

It is almsot as large as those announced by the leading major league clubs, showing that the portly mag nate has had a very busy "off season." There are thirty-one names on the roster. President Conn, of the Spo kane club, says that EM Killilay will be a sensation in the league if he has control of his fast ball. He is a brother of the Killilay who pitches for Spokane.

HUBBARDSTON, Mass., March 9 — From six to eight square inches of skin from the back of a little white pig were grafted upon the left side of Eliza beth Adams, 5 years old, of this town yesterday.

PECK ASKS Claims Her Husband Beat Her While In Drunken Frenzy—Asks Re straining Order. Because he beat her last Thursday morning, while under the influence of liquor and t"hen dragged her about the house by the hair of h£r head, Maggie R. Peck yesterday filed in the superior court a motion for divorce, asking at the same time for the sum of $100 as temporary alimony with an additional $250 as attorneys' fees. Last Saturday Peck, charged with assault and battery upon his wife was fined in the justice court $50 and costs, this sum apparently did not appease the irate spouse who claims that she has had enough of that sort of treat ment and asks that the bonds of mat rimony be dissolved. Mr. and Mrs. Peck were married May 17. 1905, and since that time have been living about five miles below the city. No children were born as a result of this union, which Mrs. Feck claims has been an unhappy one from the beginning. In addition to owning 320 acres of farm land in Umatilla county, valued at about $6000 this couple owns personal property worth about $1250. Fearing that her husband will sell the property or place it so that it can not be held in any manner, the plain tiff, through her attorneys, prays the court to issue an order forbidding this and at the same time asks for tempor ary support, alleging that the defend ant, A. I. Peck, is in a position to pay it. VERNON LAD IN TROUBLE AGAIN. Lad Given Chance by Prosecuting At torney Smith Fails to Make Good On Trial.
