Hardly had the cyclist reported to

been ln Oregon City and returned
home about 11 o'clock at night
had an exclUng experience with the
robber. Although two piatoia were

secret conference the lawyers would
say in chambers and there and then
boldly, fearlessly, yea, even defiantly
declared that the time bad come, tbe
phyalcologlcal moment aa it were,
when the fell blow must be struck.
And from that conference, which It it
declared will mark an epoch in base
ball matters in this part of the coun
try, came a challenge to the lawyers,
ministers and phyalclana to got their
willows ready, have the kinka rubbed

word It I hinted that the challenger
had an idea that their boldnesa and
Hie auddenesa with which they struck
would cause consternation ln tbe
rank of the enemy, and before the
line could be re-formed the game
would be declared forfeited. . But the
gentlemen who are employed to train
the pliable minds of the young, reck
oned without tbelr host. They little
dreamed that the professions chal
lenged numbered among them men
who virtually Invented the great na
tional game and saw the first curved
balls sent whizzing over the plate.
H. E. Cross, for Instance. They little
dreamed that there were men here,
who in the halcyon day of baseball,
had their praises sung throughout the
width and breadth of the great State
of Oregon. So hardly had tbe chal
lenge been sent upon its way before
there waa such an uprising aa haa
not been known since old Chief Mult
nomah, used to summon hla brave
for an expedition, or Rhoderlck Dhu
.used to cause men to rise up out of
the ground by tooting his whistle.
C. Schuebe! some ball player him
self, on to all the latest wrinkles and
systems anywny. If propinquity means
anything was the first to hear the
messenger's clarion voice proclaiming
Ihe challenge, and forthwith the afore
mentioned and said Schuebel, being
one of the party of the aecond part,
sent a wireless message to every law
yer, doctor and minister In the good
old County of Clackamas, with In
structions . to send by wireless their
answers at hla expense. The mes
sage conveyed the information that
the teachers had challenged, and It
urged every member of the challenged
profusions to prepare for the fray.
Mr. Schuebel waa so unxloua, so en
thusiastic, and so determined to hare
a full representation that he closed
his message with a quotation, or a
medley of quotations, In fact, that one
P. Henry Bnd one W. Scott might

quotation or quotation were as fol

CURRDd TOO STRO'tG
TO FISH NEAR FALLS
NEW PRIVILEGE GIVEN ANGLERS
AVAILS THEM NOTHING
Although Monday waa the day nam
ed by the Board of Fish CommtBsloa-f
era when the followers of Isaak Wal
ton -would be allowed to fish with lines
400 feet nearer the falls than ever
before no one took advantage of the
privilege. And there waa a very good
reason the current waa entirely too
strong. In fact the anglers were fore-
ed to throw out their lines much fur-
ther down stream than they did be-
fore the new order went Into effect.
Since the reported rise of nine feet
at Corvallis the water below the falls
has been giving an Imitation of the
rapids at Niagara. The current la so
swift that It Is almost Impossible to
keep near the falls for any length of
Then there has been another ser
ious drawback to fishing the . mud.
It has driven the salmon to the bot
tom, and besides even it they were
near the hooks they could not see the
spoons to make the necessary nibble
to being hooked. Thomas Brows, an
authority on Ashing In thla part of the
country declares that the Board of
Fish Commissioners made a mistake
when It fixed the closing time
for net. fishing on June 15, He de
clares, and .he is backed up by other
Ash merchants, that the open season
should continue until July 1. The
season In the Columbia doesn't close,
until August 1 and the fish men say
there ia no reaaon why there should
be a difference of a mouth.
