GOSSIP OF THE CLUBS
ITEMS OP INTEREST TO AMATEUR
f Football a Thins of tlie Fast Re-
.vlew of the Season Otb.ce
The outdoor season for amateur ath
letic sport is practically at an end. That
it has been a successful one was evidenced
by the crowds that turned out to every
contest held on Multnomah field, and
cheered the contestants on to victory.
The football season was, in many re
spects, unsatisfactory, because the man
agers of the several teams in the field
seemed to be working at loggerheads as
to dates of play, and every game played
was so hastily arranged that teams could
not be evenly matched. But the three
games played in this city were all of
peculiar interest to amateurs, in this
section of the country, and for that reason
aroused more enthusiasm than has been
displayed in any previous season. The
first contest of interest was that between
the Portland university and State univer
sity elevens. Football was a new de
parture among the colleges of the state,
and every one wanted to see how the
college men could play the game. The
experiment proved very successful, and
football has become established firmly
among the Oregon colleges. The annual
struggles for supremacy on the gridiron
field between the Multnomahs and Seattle
Athletic Club teams was next on the
list, and the dispute growing out of it as
to the right of amateur , clubs to play
professional coachers in championship
games, stirred up a discussion all over
the United States trat promises to bring
about a great reform In the Amateur
Athletic Union. The Multnomahs, on the
ruling of the union, lost the champion
ship, but gained a point that will give
them the advantage in the future, if
past battles can be taken as a criterion.
The recent game between the Portland
Amateur Athletic Club and the Port
Townsend Athletic Association elevens
brought out a new team of surprising
' strength, backed by a club that promises
to cut a considerable figure in the Norta
west Pacific Association in the future.
The football season opened with but little
promise of interest, but the flourish with
which it closed clearly demonstrated that
the game has lost none of its popularity
In this section of the country. The
elevens of the various clubs have dis
banded, and there will be no more games
until next fall. An effort was made a few
weeks ago to inaugurate a season of
Itugby, but the lack of interest shown
by the British Columbia clubs proved
detrimental to the scheme, and it has
The surprising strength and skill de
veloped by the Portland Amateur Athletic
Club eleven, under the coaching of Lass
well has proved a sort of seven-days
wonder In local athletic circles. There
was no lack of good, strong men on the
team, and the majority of them were
"battle-scarred veterans;" but as a team
they were almost entire strangers to the
game. But for fast play, lack of fumbling
and errors, and good generalship they,
in the opinion of many good judges, put
up the finest game seen on the field this
season. It was a snappy game, and so
open as to give spectators a chance to
watch the ball at every stage. Of course,
as the Port Townsends found their line
impenetrable, it was impossible to judge
how the Portlands might stand in defens
ive play. Not once was their center
broken through, and the backs found lit
tle to do in the way of tackling. How
ever, on one or two occasions, when a
Port Townsend man happened to stray
through the line at some point, he was
downed so quickly and hard that he could
acadlly guess that the line was well sup
ported. The criticism of a Seattle paper that the
Portland eleven is not in the same class
with the Multnomah and Seattle teams,
is. to say the least, uncalled for, and the
accompanying statement that the Port
land club is not a member of the Pacific
Northwest association is untrue The P.
A. A. C. is a charter member of the as
sociation, and, therefore, as old a one as
the S. A. C. The criticism upon the merits
of its football team is unwarranted, be
cause the jyrlter could scarcely have had
an opportunity of judging their methods
of play from the single game in which
they have been seen. Such judges of
good football as McDonell and Joe Smith,
of the Multnomahs, have said that the
Portlands put up such a modern game as
would make their chances even with the
best learns in the Pacific Northwest.
Portland's full-back, Pearson, has very
few equals on the coast: Half-backs Lass
well and Washburn are men of established
reputation, and Hall, center, and Perham
and Black, guards, are strong and bralny
onough to hold their own anywhere.
Charley Davey was without a reputation
as a football player when he entered the
game, but he played, at quarter, In a
3iiauner that will make him a much-sHMight-after
man in the future. Every
anan on the team is a pure amateur, with
u clean record. The recent game was free
from rough play, and was clean and
amateur In every way. Were it not so
3te in the season, the Portlands would
challenge the Seattles. The Multnomahs
wanted to play them previous to the Port
Townsend game, and the Tacomas have
since asked for a game. To say that
either the Multnomahs or Tacomas were
looking for a game with an inferior team,
would be doing them a great injustice, to
say nothing of the Portland club.
There has been a great deal of talk
in xegard to the annunl indoor games
of the First Regiment association, but
at; yet that body has failed to Issue an
announcement or asked for entries. The
"regimental" games usually take place
during the latter part of February, and
if they are to be brought off this year, it
is high time the announcement was made,
for, as It is, there is but little time left
for prospective participants to train. All
of the local clubs will seek representa
tion, and possibly the Astoria and Ia
Grande clubs. Some good contests are
Mr. A. J. Dallain, secretary of the
James' Bay Athletic Association, of Vic
toria. B. C. has written to Mr. H. E.
Judge, requesting him to tise his influence
to ecure the N. P. A. of A. O. regatta
of ISfa for his association. The place of
the regatta will be named next spring,
when the delegates hold a meeting, either
liore or on the Sound. The local mem
bers of the association would like to hoM
the regatta here, but will probably con
sent to holding it in Victoria, where they
were treated royally three years ago.
The Tacoma Athletic Club has taken a
grout Interest In handball this winter, and
some enthusiastic members of the club
who were In Portland during the past
wetk, suggested to the Multnomahs that
a series of contest be arranged between
the two clubs In the near future. The
Idea has been recehed with favor by the
Multnomahs. and negotiations are now in
prosross for the tournament.
A report that has been going the rounds
to the effect that the Portlands had
challenged the Multnomahs for a game
of Intercollegiate football, to take place
oh February 22. was emphatically de
nied by Manager McKee. of the Port
lamls. yesterday. "My team has dis
banded." he said, "and will ptey no more
football this season. We should have
ltked te have played the Tacomas. but the
wefcther at this time of year is so un
csrtkin that we coukl not afford to take
the risk. Next season, perhaps, we will
be ready to challenge all comers."
Sisoretary Johnson, of the East Side
Y. M. C A., is slowly and surely build

association, until It is becoming one of
Its important features. For the present
Mr. Johnson Is acting-instructor, and will
so continue until the class is large enough
and strong enough to employ some one
else. He Is an enthusiastic supporter of
athletics, and encourages members of the
association to join the class. The gym

bars, vaulting saddle, rings, ropes, lad

The East Side Amateur Athletic and
Social Club has adopted a new set of by
laws for its future permanent govern
ment. In these laws it Is set forth that
the club shall be composed of young men
who are desirous of cultivating a taste
for gentlemanly athletic exercises, out
door sports, and the social and other fea
tures of organizations of this character.
The powers vested in the club are exer
cised by 10 directors, and the officers are
a president, vice-president, secretary,
treasurer, and sergeant-at-arms. The di
rectors are to be elected semi-annually
and will select from their members the
officers of the club. No person is eligible
for membership unless he be an amateur
and not under 18 years of age. Applica
tions are to be made to the board of di
rectors. The by-laws provide for non
resident members, and any one may be
come a life member on payment of $1C0
and complying with all the rules. He is
then exempt from payment of all dues.
In all contests where members are en
tered the members are to wear club col
ors, which are scarlet and light blue.
The rules governing the conduct of mem
bers are very strict.
The challenge contest between the Port
land Whist Club and Multnomah Ama
teur Athletic Club, for possession of the
North Pacific Whist League trophy, now
held by the former organization, took
place last Friday and Saturday evenings
at the Arlington Club, and was won by
the whist club, by a score of G30 to 613.
The teams were composed as follows:
Portland Whist Messrs. Preston C
Smith, G. M. Stearns, L. Therkelsen and
Multnomah Messrs. Clarence L. Nich
ols, Nell McMillan, E. H. Shepard and
The match was conducted upon the two
table duplicate system, and was divided
into two halves, of 24 hands each. The
first half was played Friday evening,
and resulted in the score of 319 tricks for
the Portlands and 303 for the Multnomahs,
a gain of 14 tricks for the former. In the
second half, Saturday evening, the score
stood 313 for the Multnomahs and 311 for
the Portlands, a gain of 2 tricks for the
former. This, however, gave a net gain
of 12 tricks to the Porland Whist Club,
who thereby retained possession of the
trophy. The match was umpired by Mr.
T. M. Stevens. It is understood that the
Arlington Club will shortly challenge the
Portland Whist Club for the cup.
RAILROADS ALL CLEAR.
A Southern Pacific Fasucnger's In
The O. R. & N. now has a clear track
over its entire system. The regular train
was only 40 minutes late yesterday morn
ing, and there is now apparently nothing
to prevent later trains from arriving on
usual time. The only difficulty experi
enced at any point on the O. R. & N.
lines was at Oneonta, the account of
which was given in yesterday's issue. A
chlnook is now in progress in the moun
tains, and the snow is melting rapidly.
So there is no danger of fresh snow
drifting into the cuts unless another storm
should occur. The two rotary snow-plows
which have been operating between this
city and The Dalles during the past week
have been taken off the road.
The steamer which the O. R. & N. Com
pany sent to Cascade Locks to bring
on the passengers of the delayed Friday's
train was not required, and has returned.
All trains were In last night, the de
layed Southern Pacific arriving at 9:45 P.
M. There is no indication of further de
lay In railroad service on any of the sys
tems, tracks are clear and the storm is
Mr. W. J. Ingalls, of Astoria, who was
a passenger on the delayed Southern Pa
cific overland, which reached here early
yesterday morning, reports a most event
ful trip. The train left Sacramento at
10:50 on the night of January 3. A boulder
was encountered on the track between
Sims and Castle Craig, which gave the
passengers a good shaking up, and
smashed things up a little, but did no very
great damage. A landslide near Castle
Craig delayed the train four hours, and
the train had to lay over at Dunsmulr
for several hours, while the southbound
train, drawn by three engines, plowed
through the drifts In the mountains. Just
this side of Roseburg the engine broke a
coupllng-pln and connecting rod, occasion
ing another delay. Mr. Ingalls made the
following statement to a reporter yester
day. In regard to the horrible death of
Mrs. Jasous, who was a passenger on
"Mrs. Jasous was carried on board the
tourist sleeper by her husband, M. Jasous,
a Syrian, and his brother, and they said
they were going to Tacoma. The lady was
very sick all day Friday, and lay moan
ing in her own berth. Her husband was
very attentive, and apparently very ner
vous. About 2 o'clock Saturday morning,
when everybody was in bed, and asleep,
the husband alarmed the passengers by
announcing that his wife was missing,
and that he could not find her on the
train. " He could talk very little English,
but the brother could talk very well. They
seemed to be afraid of arrest, and Insist
ed that the passengers write out a state
ment, exhonorating them from all blame.
Mr. George B. Kennlston, of Maine, wrote
out a statement of the facts as under
stood by the passengers, and several
signed it. But afterward there was a
growing suspicion of foul play, and when
we reached Ashland, an engine was sent
back over the road, accompanied by Jas
ous and his brother.
"The brother told us that Mrs. Jasous
was very wealthy, and lived In Tacoma.
She was evidently a woman of 45, or there
abouts, while her husband was under 30.
The passengers all expressed a desire to
have the matter thoroughly Investigated."

Mr. Lyle says that the people in his
vicinity are anxious to have a new county
formed out of the eastern part of Crook,
the northwest portion of Grant, and a
slice from the southeast part of Grant,
and a bill is prepared for such purpose.
Mr. Lyle has agreed, if the majority of
the taxpayers living within the lines of
the proposed new county will ..join In
asking for the same, he will introduce the
bill, and do what is in his power to secure
its passage. The sheepmen of Crook
county are hoping for better times, and
better prices for wool, when the present
democratic administration goes out of
power, and the republicans again assume
control of the government. Until then
they are content to live as best they may.

ARE JAIL BIRDS SOW
HOW KELLY AXD STEEVES STAXD
Think Their Fate Hard and Unjust
District Attorney Hume Holds
a. Different Opinion.
"Bunco" Kelly thinks it strange that
Xenophon N. Steeves should have been
convicted of manslaughter. He leaned
wearily against the bars of his cage yes
terday and remarked, in the tone of one
to whom the matter was of slight per
sonal interest, that he did not see how
the jury could have reached such a ver
dict. He did not say, however, whether
he thought Steeves should have been ac
quitted, or given a harsher verdict. He
preferred to talk of his own case, and
launched forth into a denunciation of the
police, and the methods they used to ob
tain damaging admissions from him.
Kelly Is a little man, but he has not
the appearance of physical weakness de
scribed so graphically by one of the at
torneys for the defense in the Steeves
case. His arms are small, and so are his
legs, but they have a tough and wiry
look, In keeping with the character and
expression of his face. A man with such
a neck and face would doubtless prove
an ugly customer In a scrimmage. His
hands are large, and the backs are ta
tooed in sailor fashion. Phrenologically
considered, his head indicates the ex
treme development of the lower propen
sities, particularly that of destructive
ness. The muscles of bis Jaws are de
veloped to an abnormal degree, bulging
out so far beyond the usual oval of the
human face as to give a peculiar expres
sion of bulldog ferocity and determina
tion. This expression is heightened by
the wide mouth with the thin, compressed
lips, the remarkable breadth of the nos
trils, the small, fierce eyes and the low
ering scowls, as he gives expression to
some vindicative thought.
Steeves, on the contrary, looked
strangely out of place there, with his
well-groomed appearance, his face clean
shaven, except for a well-kept mus
tache, his hair carefully brushed and his
unusually tall figure neatly clothed in
black, with spotless linen and a small
black tie. He was In cell No. 2, which
Is the aristocratic quarter of the jail, and
at the opposite side of the building from
Kelly's cage. Caste is marked even In
the county jail. There are, in fact, four
degrees of discomfort to be had there.
In answer to questions, Steeves remarked:
"I think the district attorney's course
in refusing to sanction my release on ball
quite unjustifiable, for the reason that
it Is both customary and legal to admit
persons to ball, pending the judgment of
the court in such cases as this, when the
evidence is not strong."
Steeves complained that be had not
been treated fairly by either the prosecu
tion or the press, but added, resignedly,
that he supposed such treatment was to
be expected in a case like his. He was
much surprised at the verdict of man
slaughter, as he could not see where any
evidence had been produced to make any
thing but acquittal possible. He restated
"STEEVES SHALL JVOT ESCAPE JUST PUX
ISH2IEXT IF I CAN PHEVEXT IT."
his Ignorance of anything connected with
the murder of Sayres.
"Have you any theory, then," he was
asked, "as to how Sayres came to his

about it," he replied, "shut up here as I
have been for the past three months?
I know nothing on which to found any
"Do you believe Kelly to be guilty?"
'i know nothing about Kelly and can
express no opinion about him."
Steeves impresses one as a very intelli
gent man, with a face that would be
open and honest enough were it not, per
haps, for a habit he has of rapidly wink
ing his eyes when in conversation, and
only glancing at one from time to time,
as If he feared one should read some

District Attorney Hume was seen yes
terday afternoon and talked freely about
the case. He said that a more thoroughly
impartial trial had never been held in
"The prosecution," said he. "took no
unfair advantage at any point. Judge
Stephens presided with the utmost con
sideration for the defense, and it is ad
mitted by everybody that the press has
been unusually fair to both sides through
out the case. In regard to admitting
Steeves to ball, he has no right whatever
to expect it. Judge Stephens was not to
blame for Steeves' brief freedom yester
day, as he had left the matter to my
colleague. Mr. Leasure, but as soon as I
brought to his attention the fact that the
evidence against Steeves was strong, and
under the circumstances, it would be con
trary to the statute to admit him to bail,
particularly that if he chose to jump his
bond the collection of the same could be
probably successfully contested, the Judge
revoked the order. Why, do you think

settle about my ball or get out of it as
best you can.' It would not be an easy
matter to find two or three jurors for
acquittal in case of another trial, for
Steeves cannot change his line of defense,
and in a second trial we could shatter It to
pieces. We only had time to bring in
rebuttal evidence this time, but when evi

At The Dalles some time ago the body
of a little grandchild of S. B. Adams was
removed from some other graveyard to
the Sunset cemetery. At the time it was
noticed that the cotfin seemed very heavy
and it was suggested that the body was
petrified. A few days ago Mr. Frisco in
formed Mr. Adams that someone had
been digging into the grave. Mr. Adams,
accompanied by Mr. Barnett, went out
to the cemetery, and an investigation
disclosed the fact that the dirt had been
removed from the grave and the coffin
opened, although all had been carefully
replaced. It Is supposed the story of the
petrification caused the work to be done,
and on this being found incorrect the
ghouls tried to conceal their work.

It is strange that people continue drink
ing insipid Japan tea when "Blue Cross"
Ceylon tea has so much more character.
Those unhappy persons who suffer from
nervousness and dyspepsia should use
Carter's Little Nerve Pills, made express
ly for this class.
The people of Russia used to take all
the choicest China tea, but are now giving
preference to the "Blue Cross" Ceylon tea.
The refreshed feeling after drinking
"Blue Cross" Ceylon tea Is due to the
theine a natural stimulant.
