Some Bail Game
The North End Champs beat
the Yunnigans 2f-5 Sunday
morning with Ty Larson and
"Hat" Nelson pitching hay for
the Vans while Secrests pitched
for the regulars. Secrests pitch
ed no-hit ball up to the sixth in
ning when "Big" Ole hit onofor
a single. Walt Mahor mado one
of the classiest one hand stops
evor seen on the grounds. Ty
Larson was given rough treat
ment the first inning1 when with
threo on V. Larsen hit one of
his famous smashes towards
Sauvio's Island and trying to
play hog was thrown out nt the
plate. Young Lavsen was knock
ed off the rubber in the fifth
and "Bat" Nelson goes in to
stop the rumpus. "Bat" must
have fed all his speed and curves
to the High School boys, as he
was soon in a hopeless fix and
never got out until the regulars
went around three times. His
six or seven fielders came in
with tongues hanging out after
the rumpus. "Big" Ole and V.
Larsen wern the stick men, the
former getting two two-baggers
and a single while Larsen got a
triple, double and two singles.
Secrests had most of the Yans
swinging so hard that they saw
the hair on the back of their,
neck. "Kazoo" Hawkins started
to officiate but got cold feet
when the players commenced to
ride him. Hawkshaw took un
the job and umpired in most ad
mirable manner. The Champs
want a game with some town
bunch for Sunday and by seeing
Ty Larsen can arrange a game.

Tho recent decision of the

that the legislature was the sole
judge as to whethor an emergen

this is a legislative usurpation

Apropos of a recent article
in the Telegram fearing n wnter
famine in Portland this summer
owing to lightness of snow fall
and shortness of rain. P. H. Ed-
Iefsen, manager of tho St. Johns
Water Company, advances a so
lution so far ns the Peninsula
is concerned, nt least. He states
that the local plant has n capacl
ty of 3,000,000 gallons of wnter
per day, with an unlimited sup
ply; that abouta half million gal
lons serve the wants of tho peo
tie of St. Johns, but reserving
one million of gallons for local
consumption, to bo on the safe
side, there remains two million
gallons daily that is not working
and may be utilized by the peo-
lie of tho Peninsula, insuring an
amplo supply for all. So if Port-
nnd runs short of wnter the
coming summer, connections
might be mado with the St.
Johns wntor lines nnd partial
relief, at least, nllordcd.
