This time the aged celestial faces a breach of promise charge preferred by Miss Anna Hopper of Spokane, who asks $60,000 to heal her injured heart, alleging that Bologna" prom ised to marry her and failed to make his promise good. A summons and complaint were served on Pullman's lone Chinaman Friday afternoon by Marshal Baymiller, citing "Bologna" to appear in the superior court of Whitman county within twenty days and answer the complaint. Attorney L. J. Birdseye, formerly of this city, now located at Spokane, who is represent ing Miss Hopper, sent the summons and complaint to Marshal Baymiller for service, with instructions to pres ent the papers himself if possible' and If not to have it done by some one else, but to keep the matter absolute ly quiet. "Bologna" at first stated that he would not answer the complaint, but would let the case go by default, al leging that he has no money and that even If damages were awarded the plaintiff she could recover nothing. Tuesday, however, he experienced a change of heart and employed Sanger & Dow of this city to fight the case. Later he will file his answer to the complaint. I The plaintiff alleges that the China man promised to marry her on the 2nd day of this month, the date set for the wedding being November 9. She states that he failed to put in an appearance, thereby putting her to a great deal of trouble and causing much disappointment, and that a let ter was received from (Jong Lee with in a few days explaining his non-ap pearance and asking for a postpone ment of the wedding day to Wednes day, November 22. The Chinaman failed to put in an appearance on that date, and Miss Hopper now asks the $50,000 heart 'balm. The plaintiff alleges that she wrote at least three letters to her ••fiance" urging him to marry her, 'and that she received an affirmative , reply in every case. When interviewed soon after the papers had been served the China man presented his version of the case, stating that on November 3 Miss Hop per, accompanied by Mrs. Pemrose, at that time employed in one of the 10 --1 cal hotels, called at his shack and tint Mrs. Pemrose asked him if he wanted a good wife, stating that her wntttlon would marry him and ■Mb his life a happy one. He celestial denies that he prom- I "-to wed the white woman, stating 1 -he did not know whether or not ._ | |,«was a good woman and that he ; •old not promise until he had satis *M himself as to her character. The case will attract a great mount of Interest locally, as the ftinaman has for the last 25 years PS a unique character in Pullman's Wory.

To a representative of a Spokane newspaper. Miss Pemro.e, who is now located at the Brown hotel in Spo kane, stated that Miss Hopper is in Hillyard. "I came from Chicago a year ago, and have a brother in the Armour packing plant," said Miss Pern rose, who is about 40 years of age. "There is no reason whatever for connecting my name with the case, as 1 was not at Pullman with Miss Hopper. "It is true that. 1 was there last November employed as a cook at the Palace hotel. I saw the Chinaman often, but do not know that he had money. It may be that he- wants to get even with me about something." "Bologna" has in his possession three letters which he received from the Hopper woman. In each of these the celestial is addressed as "Dear Gong," his true- name being Gong Lee) and in the first the plain tiff told the Chinaman that "Shorty" who is said to be Miss Pemrose, would come to Pullman soon to see "Bologna" and arrange to purchase a dining room. The others told of the "keen disappointment" experienced by the plaintiff upon _.he failure of her "fiance" to put in his appear ance on the days set for the wedding. Both were couched in endearing terms. Gong Lee said: "This woman come to my house one night with Miss Pemrose and she ask me to marry her. I tell her maybe me mar ry her. She go way to Spokane and write me letter tell me 'Shorty' come down see me. Then she write me more letter and ask why me no marry her like me say me would. Me got no money. She get nutting. 1 sue her in court and make her pay big cost. 1 no want to marry her. What for me want wife?" "Bologna" has many friends in Pullman who believed that the case is a deliberate attempt to fleece the Chinaman out of his hard earnings and several offers of financial assis tance in fighting the case have been made. The Chinaman's life has been anything but a happy one, but hi litis borne his hard luck with much patience and is always in a happy mood. He is almost totally blind as a result of a fiendish attack by a French cook in Sprague many years ago. The cook had been discharged for drunkeness and "Bologna" was given his position. Tlie discharged man returned to the place and threw coal oil on the Chinaman and set a lighted match to it. The Chinaman's clothing was almost burned from his body and his face was badly disng ured, his eyesight being nearly des troyed. The Frenchman was given a term in the penitentiary. The house was insured with E. W. Downen and was valued at about $2500. Mr. Matlock did not carry any insurance on the contents and his loss is quite heavy- An adjuster is expected here today. The fire Is supposed to have started from a de fective flue. Emory Kilhum Married. Emory' Kilham, son of Mr. and Mrs. S. E.

Day <V»1<! and Disagreeable and High Scores , Impossible. C. li. Green, of Moscow, took first honors at the trap shooting tourna ment last Monday, taking four firsts and one second in fifteen events The shoot was largely attended, but the day was cold ami disagreeable and high score's were obi of the question, a seen., of eight out of a possible ten being good for first place' in near ly every instance. In each even! a turkey was the prize for first place, with a goose for second and a duck for third, and a goodly number of these fowls found their way to the homes of the participants While rifle contests were advertis ed as a part, of the program, but lit tle interest was evidenced in that sport and only two or three events were pulled off, these being won by T. A. Ireland and Lew Irwin of Col fax. Those winning first, and second places in the trapshooting events were as follows: first. —Green, Moscow. 1; Colo, Welsh Choir Pleases Audience By 11. B. Humphreys) Those whose privilege and pleasure ;t was to hear the brilliant musical performance of last Tuesday evening will have for many a day a lingering sense of having,heard something ef fective aud musically beautiful, It is matter of common concession by all those best fitted to judge that the singing of the Mountain Ash Choir of sixteen native Welshmen was the best of its kind that has been heard by a Pullman audience. Although Pullman is but a mere spot on the map in comparison with those cities usually favored by the best type of musical performances we are in this respect in a class with Spokane, Seattle, Tocoma and other towns of like. size; for, during th" last ten years Pullman audiences have, heard much of the world's best mu sic from the voices and instruments of many of the world's best perform ers. And the Mountain Ash Choir was no exception to the rule, unless it be conceded that the' refined de light, of their singing won the ap preciation of a greater than usual number of listeners. Music is a part of the very warp and woof of a Welshman's makeup. Since the time of Orugydd ab Cynan, away back in the twelfth century, the people of Wales have been singing, not as a means to an end, but be* cause music is a part of the natural every-day life.. So important is it regarded that for generations the peasantry of Wales has maintained that national tournament, the Eistid dood, the first one of which was held at Cardigan in 176. At the time of the Eistiddood a great concourse of people from all the valleys and mountain glens of Wales meet, to witness the most Important event of the principality. For it is then when men meet to vie with their Merritt Tells How Washington Won Seattle, Nov. 30. — (Special to the Herald) —The U. of W. defeated XV. S. C this afternoon by a score of 30 to 6, but the- game was much closer than the score Indicates. Dobie admits that it should have been 12 to C. W. S. C. outplayed their opponents in the first quarter and showed great offense and defense. Laird fell on fumbled ball after Kienholz had carried it over the goal line. Both teams put up a great game in the first, third and fourth quarters. The sec ond quarter was disastrous for XV. S. C. The IJ. of W. scored three touchdowns on recovered punts near the W. S. c. 20-yard line. Our boys were decidedly out-lucked, but not outplayed The last quarter was a punting duel, Coyh' played poorly and was all in. The University won only be cause of a superior backfield. Our line Is the best yet. The two darters. Laird, Pynn and Tyrer played great ball. Caddis was the particular star of both teams. In head work, carrying tbe ball and running back punts he showed the caliber of a veteran. Coyle out-punted the W. S. c. backs on every exchange and Mucklestons was the best ground gainer. W. 8 C.'s touchdown came after 50 yards of the. best football ever seen here. Dobie was worried on side lines during the first quarter. Be.th teams worked forward pass to good advantage, sprang many surprises and uncorked more foxy plays than have been seen in any of the conference game- this season. This is the first time W. S. C. has scored on the U. of W. for four years. Everybody satisfied. 0«thofl Is pleated with team. Luck beat them. Ceni(l day. fine field, 5000 crowd.

When it is considered that the. Pullman club has been organized but two weeks and that some of the members bad never shot at a bluerock until that time, the' showing of the locals is an exceptionally good one, and gives evi dence that with a few months practice* Pullman will have a trapshooting team that can compete with the best of them. While Monday's tourna ment was not given under the aus pices of the' club, it did much to stim ulate interest in the organisation and was the means of securing several new members. It is the Intention of the' club to hold a tournament some time before Christmas! fellows in literary and musical con tests. It would indeed be difficult to estimate the' great value of this national institution in maintaining a high musical standard and in vital izing the language and literature of Wales Many, if not most of the men who so delightfully entertained us on the evening of Nov. 28th have been prize winners in these tournaments; and much of their superiority as singers is the product of the competitive drill through which each contestant must have passed. It may not be generally known by the readers of the Herald that the voices we heard Tuesday night were those of men who have without exception taken no lessons in vocal music, other than the long lesson learned through competition. The Welsh boys and girls begin to sing as soon as they learn the first words of their simple folk songs. All about them are the' rich tones of the harp and of their elders; music sweet in melody and rich in harmony is heard about the fireside, by the shore, in tlie field, and underground. And from these various sources have gath ered such men as now make up the Mountain Ash Choir, un organ ization numbering over eighty voices. Our college organist. Doctor Evans, prior to his coming to the United States, was director of a large- church choir in Merthyr Tydoil, not many miles distant from Mountain Ash. More than once his choir was in com petition with the men of Mountain Ash and not always to the advantage of the latter. The Choir left Pullman for a three nights' performance in Seattle. From Seattle they go to Vancouver, B. C. then back to Seattle and on the foi lowing night they will be heard in Tacoma. PULLMAN HIGH SCHOOL WINS CHAMPIONSHIP Football Team Closes Successful Season with Decisive Victory Over Strong Palouse Eleven. For a second time has the' Pull man high school team won the football championship of Whitman county, and won it so decisively thai no erne questions their superiority. The last game' was played yesterday on Rogers field in the presence of a large and enthusiastic crowd. The boys lined up against the heavy and last representatives of the Palouse high school, who had beaten all other aspirants for the county champion ship and came here confident of victory. A big delegation of Palouse enthusiasts came with them and did some first class rooting on the side lines. Tho weather was favorable and the field ill good condition, ex cept ihat it was soft and slippery in spots. A hard, exciting contest was expected and the crowd was not. disappointed. Both teams played for all they were worth, but played clean football, as Is evidenced by the fact that Pullman was not once penalized and Palouse but twice. once lor tripping and once for be ing offside. All the players were in first class condition and not a man was taken out during the- whole contest. Pullman won the toss and elect ed 10 defend the east goal, with the wind at their backs. Palouse kick ed off and Pullman at once rushed the ball rapidly up tin' field by a series of line' bucks and end runs. On their 20-yard line Palouse se cured the ball on downs ami alter trying the line punted out of danger, but Pullman soon bad the ball with ing striking distance' again and Moss placed a pretty drop kick over the bar. The teams changed seals for the second quarter and after a few plays Livingston intercepted a long pass, jumping in the air, taking the ball almost out of the bands of one of the' Palouse backs, and then sprint ing 75 yards for a touchdown. He was tackled from behind just as he went over the line. Moss failed to kick goal. The half ended with the score 8 to 0 in favor of Pullman. In the first quarter Pullman clearly outplayed their opponents and the ball was in Palouse territory nearly all the time. In tin' second quarter Palouse took a decided brace and the ball see saw ed back and forth near th'- center of the field till Palouse' recovered a fumbled punt on Pullman's 25-yard line and was making steady gams when the half ended. In the last half neither goal line was dangerously threatened through i some long runs were made and Pa- I louse pulled off a pretty .ripple for ward pass. Pullman was playing ; safe and Moss punted frequently, bis i work in this department being a feature of the game-. Once he boot ed the ball over 70 yards, Most of the last quarter was played In the ; Palouse end of the field. As usual all the Pullman boys played a hard, snappy game and are entitled to equal credit. Each one did his part and did it well. They ' were against a team wliich made them play their best, every moment of the game. Palouse has every rea son to feel proud of their eleven. They are near champions, even it they did not win the championship, and put up a first class article of football. By winning the county champion ship, Pullman will retain for anoth er year the silver trophy cup pres ented by the First National bank of this city. If the team next year can win the cup again, it will become the property of the high school, as under the* terms of the git. it is to be retained permanently by the high school wining the county football I championship for three- consecutive years. The high school team has made a remarkable record this year, having lost but one gam.-, and that to the Lewiston Normal eleven by a score of 11 to 0. Not only have the boys NUMBER 9 defeated every high school team they have' inVn liv decisive scores, but their goal line has not been crossed. Pol lowing is the record; Pullman. ...

In addition to these games the boys won a practice game from the W. S. C. second team by a score of 6 to ii and won two games from the "Preps" by scores of 25 to 0 and 5 I lei 0. The < loach This splendid record Is in large measure due to Couch Cecil Cave, who is entitled to much credit, not only tor the fine playing of his pupils but also for their splendid physical condition. By careful handling at the beginning of practice and not allowing the boys to scrimmage un til they were hardened up and had learned how to look out for them selves, he has brought the team through the season without any In juries and not a player lias been ta ken out of any game because of be ing hurt or exhausted. This record, to gether with the line' team work, strong defense, and varied offense, stamps Mr, Cave as one of the best coaches in this .section of the country and shows that he has the faculty of teaching others to play the game as well as to play It himself. He played right half back on the W. S. C. team for four years—l9o6-7-8 and 9. In '06 he was a prep, and probably the youngest player on any college team In the United Slates. ll.' played a star game all four years and captained the team in 1909. Last year he coached the team which won the county championship. He has a strong hold on the confidence and esteem of bis pupils and has demonstrated beyond question his ability as a couch.
