; VOLUME XXIV ID RIVALS TO CLASH ATMOSCOW TODAY W. S. C. and University of Idaho Foot ball Teams Are Ready for Their Annual Gridiron Contest COACH OSTHOFF. The game Friday is a tOMUp. We know nothing about Idaho's strength and have hardly found our own. At such an early sea son stage of the game, and Idaho fight to go against, I can only say that we will give them all we have. Yes, we hope to come off ' victorious. I do not look for a tie score, one team is going to be defeated, but not badly. The team is working hard and will fight for its college every mo ment of the game. Everything is in readiness for the big annual gridiron contest between the husky warriors of the W. S. C. and the fast and foxy pigskin experts of the U. of 1., which takes place at Moscow, Idaho, this afternoon. Unusual interest attaches to this al ways exciting contest. In the 13 previous games between the repre sentatives of these two institutions each has won six and the 1908 con test was a draw. Both teams are eager to gain a lead in the race and will battle for all they are worth ; to add another victory to their list. t While neither team has appeared in public sufficiently to get a line on their comparative strength, both are brim full of confidence. Too much confidence on the part of W. S. C. has caused the loss of several games in the past, and Coach Osthoff has this year been devoting much energy in impressing upon his pupils tho necessity of putting in their best licks from the very start. It is be lieved that he has aroused the fight ing spirit of the squad and that they will be on their toes from the mo ment the referee's whistle is blown. W. S. C. has a powerful and ex perienced line and a fairly good hack field, which has been materially j strengthened by the switching of Captain Fishback to the position of j full. While the team has appeared ! in but one practice game, a feeling of quiet confidence pervades the stu dent body, which has been communi cated to the Pullman fans, and an immense crowd will set out for the Idaho city this noon. Roth the X. P. and 0.-W. R. & N. lines will run special trains to accommodate the enthusiastis. The N. P. train will comprise 16 coaches and the 0.-W. R. & N. probably seven coaches. They will be needed, for Pullman is in the throes of a severe attack of •the most virulent form of gridironitis and the city will resemble Gold -1 smith's "Deserted Village" this :, afternoon. "On to Moscow" is the watchword, and "We must beat I Idaho" the answer. The enthusiasm | was wrought to fever heat last eve- I ning by one of the biggest football I rallies since the college on the hill I was established. The Officials. H The game will be as well ap pointed, officially speaking, as any I game ever played.

PUB-GAME FORECAST. (By Roy W. Merritt.) ,".. Pre-game football talk, on the eve °* the annual contest between Idaho ai»d the state college is rife concern ing the chances of the two teams. Coach Osthoff, although not too sure, i s confident that with any break of lock at all his team will come off tae. field at Moscow victorious. With three cripples, it is no wonder jtnat Osthoff is rather dubious about Impressing his opinion about tomor row's battle. Fishback. jj with the _;weakest kind of an ankle, may not The Pullman Herald Devoted to the best interests of Pullman and the best farming community in the Northw_.t aurroundtng it evotea to me best intere.ts of Pullman and the best farming community in the Northwest surrounding it. be played at full even for a starter, acocrding to the statement made by the coach last night. "Fishback is in mighty poor condition," said Osty, "and unless he feels better Friday, it. will be impossible to play him bark of the line. Fishback plays so hard and tears into the fight so fast, that in his injured condition, with a poor ankle, it will not be ad visable to play him back to the line unless he improves. lie will play himself out in a short time if given the opportunity." Eddie Kienholz, half back, has had a poor shoulder ever since the Gon zaga game, and the coach is wor ried about Eddie's ability to see the hard game through. Worse off than Eddie, however, is "Shorty" Harter, the long center. Harter has not be.en in a suit for three nights, his sore shoulder preventing him from taking the nightly workout. Other than these three men, the team is in good shape. Osthoff said last night that he had made no en deavor to put the men in iop-notch shape, as he wished to guard'very carefully against over-training the men and getting them into mid season shape at the very outset. The coach believes that with so many games coming up, the boys will do better to take it easy and work up to real form gradually than to give them overtime at the start. Idaho has little to fear from the State College in the interpretation of Idaho's plays. Idaho as yet has not made public her best bets. On the other hand, the state college, in the Gonzaga game, opened up a whole lot. and Pink Griffiths had two men over here to watch and watch closely every turn of the football compass. This has given Idaho two whole weeks in which to perfect a defense for XV. S. C.'s formations. That is where one big rub in the coming contest is making itself felt. Again, Idaho has had two practice games, and the state college has had but one. Early season practice games count heavily on a team's chances in- its first conference con test. There's another rub. It is true that we have a heavier line than has Idaho, but with every likelihood that Tom Fishback will not be behind the line, we have a weaker back field than Idaho. Idaho has us excelled on a kicker, this big fellow Kinneson. who is pulled back from center to do the booting, being good for 4 0 or 45 yards at most any stage of the game. Lovers of the game will undoubtedly see more foxy plays used by Idaho than they have! ever before used in any one game.. That is their salvation with a fast! back field, headed by Hilman, the J big fullback. ] If Idaho's usual luck in the early part of the game is forestalled, the State College has more than an even chance of winning. This Idaho luck is what we must guard against if we expect to win the game. Idaho has always grabbed a fumble, got away with a fluke or sprung some thing entirely unlooked for when they have won the games that they were not doped to win. Thornton last year, in accidentally picking up that fumble on a beautiful bounce, when he had full speed ahead, with | I no one in his path, netted Idaho the 1 1 winning score. This is a good ex ample of the Idaho luck. We simply have to watch this early burst of speed on Idaho's part if the game is to come home to Pullman. With an elegant day in sight, the largest crowd that ever witnessed a football game in the Palouse country is expected to turn out to see this big hard-fought contest. The trains leave about 12:30 and return after the game. Game called at 2:30 sharp. Harry Styles this week purchased a three and one-half acre tract In McGee's addition, abutting on the college farm. The deal was made through the Pullman Land Co. PULLMAN. WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20. 191! The laws under which the banks of Pullman me operated re quire that the hooks of the bank he written up and correctly bal anced at the close of each day's business, so as to show the exact condition of the bank at the end of each day's work. It is necessary for the bank's office force to start this work at 3 o'clock p. m. in order to get It finished before bed-time. Heretofore it has been the custom of the banks of Pullman to balance the day's business at :t o'clock p. m. and afterwards admit customers to the lobby of the bank, transact business, ami carry these transactions over into next day's business. It has been ruled by the Hank Examiners that this is not in accord with the above men tioned provision of law.* - Therefore it is hereby agreed by and between the banks of Pullman that on and after .November Ist, 1011, we will confine our business transactions strictly to the office hours provided In our by laws, and will admit no one to the bank before the hour of II o'clock a. m. nor after the hour of 3 o'clock p. m.

IMPROVEMENTS BEING MADE Street Commissioner Hooper Reports Much Progress in Putting Pull man's Sidewalks in Good Condition. Xt the present rate id' progress Pullman will soon be in a position to boast of the best sidewalks of any city her size in the Northwest. *The sidewalk question has for a long time been a hard one for the city council to solve, and while improve ments along the line of sewer con struction, road building, etc., have been under way the sidewalks have of necessity been allowed to become badly dilapidated. With the city well supplied with sewer lines and with the streets in good condition, the city dads have now turned their attention to the sidewalks. and have instructed Street Commissioner Hooper to see thai, every foot of sidewalk within the. city limits is put in good con dition. The commissioner has taken hold of the work in a way that shows that he means business, and as a result new and* substantial side walks are rapidly replacing the an tiquated relics that have passed lot walks for the past few years. That the property owners are willing and ready to co-operate with the council in the matter is shown by the readi ness with which they make the Im provements after they have been notified by the commissioner, and the fact that many of the walks are being replaced with cement walks proves that the property owners take much more pride in upholding Pull man's reputation as a city of progress and enterprise. While every part of the city is the scene of much sidewalk- con struction, College hill is receiving more attention along that line than the other parts of the city. The walk along Maiden Lane, which for the past year has been almost Im passible, is being replaced by a good, substantial walk as fast as the two crews of carpenters under Commis sioner Hooper can do the work. A new grade has been established along Maiden Lane and the Improve ment is one that will be hailed with joy by the residents of the city. A. D. Wexler. Mrs. Batts and A. D. Baum have replaced the walks abutting on their property with good board walks, and H. M. Hook, of the Model Bakery, is laying a fine ce ment walk in front of his property on Maiden Lane. Dr. Archer is lav ing 200 feet of cement walk In front of his property and W. A. Moss is constructing 300 feet of the same kind of walk in front of the Shearer property, recently purchased by Mr. Moss. The walk along the west side of the W. S. Thornber property Is being replaced, as Is that abutting on the property of the Shearer estate. Thos. Ellis.

M. Boone, ex-banker and politican of Palouse, stands face to face with a sentence of from one to ten years imprisonment in the statt penitentiary. The state supreme court last Friday handed down a de cision confirming the conviction of Mr. Boone on a (barge of larceny by embezzlement while acting as presi dent" of the State Bank of Palouse. The case was tried before Judge Can field and traded much attention because of the prominence of the de fendant, who is a pioneer resident of this county, had served one term in the state senate, was a candidate for the republican nomination for con gress from this district, in 1908 and served a few months as state hank examiner prior to the closing of the Palouse bank. The case was hard fought and the evidence brought out during the trial aroused consider able sympathy for the defendant, i as it showed that while he had I juggled the assets and accounts of the institution, it was done to keep the bank going and not for his own private benefit, and that he had put his own property in escrow to pro tect the interests of his depositors, He is under sentence of from one to ten years in the state penitentiary, and pending the decision on his ap peal to the supreme court has been living with his son on an irrigated tract of land on the Columbia river, near Hanford. A petition for a re hearing will probably be made, but there Is little chance that it wilj be granted, as the case was ably briefed and argued before the supreme court Seriously Injured. A. E. Smith; chief lineman of the Pullman bfflce of the Pacific Tele phone & Telegraph Co., was very seriously injured Monday afternoon by falling 23 feet from the top of a telephone pole in College Park addi tion. The accident was caused by his failure to. properly adjust his safety belt. He had a pair of plyers stuck in his pocket, close to the ring of the belt and thinks that he must, have slipped the snap over the ply ers instead of through the ring. At j any rate, when he leaned hack be ! tell from the pole and struck the ground on his back. He was taken to Dr. Campbells hospital, where itl was found that his spine was frac tured, and the lower part of his body paralyzed. An operation was per- j formed Tuesday, which relieved the pressure on the spinal cord, and yes terday his condition was much Im proved and there is hope of bis re-1 co very.. 488 Have Registered.

TWO THOUSAND PEOPLE HEAR GYPSY SMITH Famous Evangelist Addresses Largest Crowd that Ever Gathered in College Auditorium The largest audience that ever gathered in the college auditorium listened to Gypsy Smith, the famous evangelist, last Saturday afternoon. The auditorium has a seating capac ity of about twelve hundred, and tho over How crowd was accommo dated on the stage, in chairs placed in the aisles, and even tho stairway leading to the balcony was packed, it being estimated that fully 8000 people listened to the renowned Eng lish evangelist. Largo delegations came from Colfax, Moscow and other nearby towns. The evangelist, accompanied by Messrs. Bloom, Cross and Preston and Mrs. Dr. McFadden, arrived at 11:50 on the N. P. train and were met at the station by a large dele gation. The party took lunch at the Palace hotel, after which they were driven to the college auditorium in automobiles, By 1 o'clock the audi torium was packed. although the services did not begin until 1:30. Dr. Hayes, pastor of the Presby terian church, Introduced the speak er to the audience in a few well chosen words. On the platform, be sides Mr. Smith, were the members of his immediate party, who accom panied him here, all of the ministers of the various Pullman churches, and the Rev. Dr. Clarence O. Kim ball, of Walla Walla, anil formerly of the Vincent M. E. Church of Spo kane. For his text Gypsy Smith chose the kindly message which he re ceived in an anonimous letter, evi dently from a mother in Spokane, who asked him, while in Pullman, to pray for her sons and daughters, who were attending college here. Without bluster or excitement, he besought the assembled people to live clean lives. "The best Christian on earth may at any time loose Christ." declared the evangelist. "Oh, people, I be seech you to have a care. Watch the trail that you ate following. The way of Christ is narrow, and it is so easy to stray from the way. "When you lend your ear to listen to a filthy yarn you are in danger of losing Christ; when you degrade yourself to tell a dirty story you have lost Christ. Watch your mouth and your ears. If you are a preach er, or if you are one of the stays of your church, your fickle heart may lose you Christ, by one little act of this kind." Long before Mr. Smith had con cluded his ardent appeal for the souls of the people, to take up the blessings of the simple life as taught by the Savior, handkerchiefs were in evidence everywhere. At no time did he raise his voice to an excited pitch, but the absolute simplicity of his truths were by far the strongest ap peal he could have made, In appearances Gypsy Smith is very common and is just as he told the audience, only a plain man, who loved humanity. As lie arose from his seat and spoke the few words of his text many were disappointed, having expected to hear a sermon of blood and thunder and Hell, but after he had spoken a few minutes in that wonderfully low, musical voice of his, there was no person present who could say that, they were disappointed. The greatness of the man grew with each word that lie uttered, and no one was sorry that they had listened to his story. The singing was led by Choirmas ter Xaftger, but as the audience did not take part In the singing to the extent that the evangelist desired, he Stepped to the front of the stage and asked the audience If he should sing a verse of the hymn himself. The audience replied with heary hand clapping and the evangelist said: "I'll sing a verse if you'll sing the chorus, but mind, if you don't sing the chorus I'll sing the verse." Then, to make sure that the . audience did its part, he had tie > chorus sung first, and %tts so well ■■■-.■■ '■-,''•'■■-. 'fl& - Im - • NUMBER 3 pleased with the response that he sang two verses. The next hymn was "Only a Sin ner Saved by Grace," and Gypsy sang two verses, as well as a verse or two of the next hymn, "'I Love to Tell the Story." and In the last effort he got 'the audience to join . until the house rang with the melody. Gypsy then spoke on the necessity of singing and said: "When you go to church and do not. Join ln the singing your pastor wonders what Is wrong with you. He suffers in silence. I suffer out loud." Turning to the pastors .on the stage he asked: "Can you do any thing for a man or an audience that won't sing?" All of the pastors ans wered in the negative. Gypsy turned again to the audience and said: "Even God can not do anything for you if vim won't sing, if you sit through the service like a log and won't take any part. When you open your mouths you open your hearts so that Cod can enter." At the conclusion of the sermon in waiting automobiles to the North in waiting automobiles to the North ern Pacific depot, where they took the 3:30 o'clock train back to Spo kane. Chamber of Commerce. The most important business transacted by the meeting of the Chamber of Commerce Tuesday eve ning was the unanimous decision to show the good will of Pullman toward the county fair and the wil lingness of the business men to bury the hatchet in the long-standing quarrel with Colfax by getting up an excursion of Pullman citizens to at tend the fair on Thursday. A num ber of short talks were made in fa ■ vor Of the plan, and then T. XV. Amos, Wm. Goodyear and J. S. Klemgard were appointed as a com mittee to induce as many as possible to join the excursion. A letter was read from the Campbell Soil Culture Co.. stating that Mr. Campbell, the noted dry land farming specialist, and some of - bis associates were to make a lecture tour of this state, and asking if a date could be arranged for Pullman. The secretary was Instructed to write for further information regarding dates and terms. The horticultural committee re ported that preparations were being made for a Pullman exhibit at the National Apple show at Spokane.. Attorney Adams of Spokane made a short address explaining the plans of the Interstate Amusement Co. re garding the building of a theater In Pullman. Prof, Taylor, acting' head of the department of economic science at the college, was Introduced and made a very interesting address, in which he explained his desire to co operate in every way possible with the business men and farmers In solving the practical problems which confront the people of this section. Mr. Mineah, of Prosser. an old friend of President Slagle, was intro duced and spoke briefly in eulogy of the resources and people of this state, urging the importance of being progressive in politics as well as in business and farming.
