council bad confirmed th? apiiolnt
ment of policeman by tfie Mayor It
would have bocome A permanent of
fice, and would raise tbe taxes about
half mill eai'h year. In the mean
time the Mayor has the power to ap
point a man, and tbe .-ouncllnien
are willing until that lime to pay hla
alary until the matter will be taken
up at the December election. The
councllmen think so long aa the peo
ple have to pay the taiee they have
a right lo have aay In the matter.
Councilman llolman said Wednes
day that he oppoaed th appointment
of a policeman fur the bill taction be
cause he was convinced tnst a ma
jority of the residents of that district
did not fever It. He said the terri
tory wss to large for one man to

of tbe Athletic Committee of the

sembly, Wednesday decided that tbe
Price Bros.' team won the champion
ship In tbe series at the Chautauqua,

Dilworth Derbies, of Portland, pro
tested the last and deciding game, al
leging that Berger, who pitched for
Price Bros, wss ft professional snd
had played 4Hh teams In tbe Coast
and. North wfteoara. leagues... The de
cision In favor of the Oregon City
team wss made reluctantly. The let
ter of tbe committee to tbe assembly
clones aa follows:
"Mr. Berger, we find, was very su
perior to th ' pitcher for whom he
was substituted, and : had been tried
out by Mr. "IcCredle for one of bis
teams, but found not qualified for tbe
position. J "
"Under the contract for this club
with the Chautauqua Assembly, which
contract wis like that of every other
club with the. association and waa
therefore known to the other club,
Oregon City had ft light to substi
tute Mr. BerRer for the disabled pitch
er by the strict letter of the contract
For which reason, tbe protest is dis
allowed, but we are constrained to
state (hat In view of the fact that
these two teams were equally suc
cessful up to the time of this game,
that the championship of the season
depended upon It, and that a pitcher
was obtained who waa next to a pro
fessional, the action of the Price
Bros, team substituting this superior
pitcher should be condemned and
such contract made hereafter with
the baseball teams as to make such

would not go to the expense of ex

made unless there was something
tangible to work upon.
"Not the slightest evidence has
been submitted showing that Mrs.
Friel did not die from natural causes,"
said the coroner. "It is ridiculous to
think that I would put tbe county to
