The Pullman Tribune says: "Doubt whether W. S. C. band had Square deal," and goes on to say that one man, by the way a Spokane man, said it was not intended that the college band should receive a prize. Now, in. reply to the Pullman Tribune will say that I think the men who acted judges were too honorable to do any thing but what was deserving in their estimation. I further say I have al ways considered it very poor sports manship for anyone to enter a con as the decision was not to their liking, offer excuses or say it was not on the square. My band won fair and could do the same thing over again. Pullman made a good showing and deserves much credit, but the Mos cow band made a better showing. In regards to the leader of the Lewiston band, expressing the wish that the second prize go to the W. S. C. band, will say I have played under Professor Baumgaetel of Lewiston and he must have changed his disposition consider able if he were foolish enough to make or even express such a wish. My band won and won on the square and that's what hurts. E, J. CAREY, Director Moscow Band.
