Big Basket Ball Game Team
From Chicago to Play .
There is to be one more big bask
et ball game at the College Armory
It takes place Thursday " night,
and ought to bethe most spectacular
of anything of the kind that has
vet transpired this season. This
time it is another Eastern team that
is to go up against the OAC men
The men are the Meteors, a Y. M
C. A. team of Chicago. Unlike
the Red Wing team, they are in
size about the equal of the OAC
men, everaging 135 to 138 pounds.
Their great stunt is speed and team
work, and at this they must be
crackerjacks, from all accounts.
They have played 54 games this
season, all but two off of their own
floor, and they have lost but seven.
One defeat was by the Kansas City
Athletic Club, the champion team
of the world, by which they were
defeated but three points. Subse
quently the Meteors defeated the
University of Nebraska team, which
has since beaten the Kansas Ath
letic Club. They . have one man
who is only five feet four in stature
who jumps five feet ten in the high
The Meteor men left SanFrancis
co last night, and will play a game
in Eugene tomorrow night, reach
ing Corvallis Thursday. They left
Chicago eight weeks ago and have
since played in Illinois, Iowa, Wy
oming, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah,
Nevada, California and Oregon.
Their route home will be via the
Northern Pacific, playing many
teams enroute. ',
At Salt Lake, : Utah, they de
deated a team that beat the Red
Wine team recently in Corvallis,
by 17 points. They saw the Red
Wing team play at Stockton, Calif
ornia, but did not play them.

A second victim of typhoid fever
was buried in Crystal Lake ceme
tery Sunday. She was Ina May
Day, 13 year-old daughter in the
John Day home. Her sister, Eva
Bell Day, aged 19, was laid away
in the same burial lot the preceding
Monday. ' '
The funeral of Ina Day occurred
from the Christian church at two
o clock, and the service was con
ducted by Mrs.' Humbert. There
was a splendid offering 5of flowers,
brought by the children of the
public schools. In the same fam
ily, Joe Day, aged about 18, is very
low with the disease.
The melancholy facts above ren
der of keen interest statements that
appear in an article published in
McClure s magazine last June. In
part they are as follows:
All typhoid is traceable to pol
luted water. If for a year the world
were to stop drinking dilute sewage
typhoid fever would vanish from
our vital statistics. Nine-tenths
of all infection comes direct from
bad water. Infected cities get the
disease in one of two ways. They
drink water polluted by themselves
or by others. Lake communities
drink their own offscourings. Res
idents of river municipalities wel
come to their warm and hospit
able interiors the germs which come
down the stream to them from dis
eased cities or rural districts direct
ly abov. There is a pleasant the
ory widely and warmly endorsed by
various boards of health that run
ning water purines itselt in seven
or eight miles. This is shown to
be fallacious. In Pittsburg in four
teen years typhoid fever has claim
ed 6.000 victims, practically all
traceable to the water supply. Some
day Pittsburg will have good water
It is spending- seven and one half
millions on a filtration plant. At
Butler, Pa., in 1903, a private water
company was at fault. In sight of
the pumping station stood a house
where there were two cases of ty
phoid. The refuse from the house
was thrown into a creek and car
ried down to the intake. There
developed in 19 days 1123 cases.
Many new grave stones point the
lesson that while the law ot man
does not exact its penalties, the law
of natuie will require them.
"At Ithaca, New York, the seat
of Cornell University, an epidemic
existed in 1903. The watershed
supplying the city was lined with
pigstys, manure piles, garbage
heaps, cattle pens, tnd outhouses,
many of them discharging their
contents almost directly into the
supply. By the time the disease
had run its course, there were 1880
known cases out of a population of
15,800, more v than one to every
dozen inhabitants. The fever was
not the most virulent type. - Only
about 8 per cent ot the reported cases
died, but even- with this low rate
the mortality reached 725 per ioo,
"Typhoid fever differs from most
other diseases in that its trail leads
from the country to the town. Each
hamlet, village, and even farm
houses, that drain to a watershed is
a peril to every city which draws
its drinking supply from that water
shed. . ." . -
"Every man is concerned immed
iately or prospectively, in typhoid
fever, if not through himself then
through his family, his friends, his
business interests, or the taxes he
pays. You pay taxes to get good
water and to have the laws enforc
ed. One of the best preventatives
against typhoid is the "pernicious
municipal activity which sees that
it gets what it pays for. The mat
ter f having typhoid fever at great
expense or avoiding it at less ex
pense is largely a matter of intelli
gent citizenship." - -
Visited Corvallis Is Man Thugs Tried
to Slay Carries a Wound.
Paul Radir, who has recently be
come a well known figure in Ore
gon, left at noon after a day spent
in Corvallis. He is the man on
whose life an attempt was made in
Salem, a few days ago. While on
a back street he was accosted by
two men who inquired the way to
the railroad station. As he raised
his umbrella to indicate the direc
tion, one of the men struck at Mr.
Radir' s breast with a knife. The
blade passed through the coat and
vest and passed almost complete
ly through a pocket book inside
containing a lot of cards. Radir
was quickly on the defense and being
a young man of large and athletic
physique quickly routed his an
tagonists. In the melee, he re
ceived a slash of the knife across
the back of his hand, to repair
which a couple of stitches were
taxen by a physician.
The marks of the struggle were
still noticeable on Mr. , Radir while
he was in Corvallis. The hole in
his coat had been sewed, but the
mark was easily noticeable. The
rent in the vest had not even been
attacked with a needle.- The
wounded hand was carried band
aged. The whole matter wastreat
ed by Mr. Radir as trivial. "AH
I hate about it is that they tried to
get me into the fake column," he
said. "The only thing strange
about it is that my opponents down
in Portland, pronounced the whole
matter a fake before the sheriff of
Marion county had even had time
to be heard on the subject. The
men assaulted me as described, and
for what reason I cannot say. I
have always said and still say that
I cannot believe they were employ
ed to attack me by the Liquor Deal

with the personality, of Mr. Radir

brush away every doubt as to the
manhood and integrity of the man,
and leave no question as to his pur
poses. He is a college man, and
carries brains in his head that lift

"If people knew the inner facts
relative to the minor who got evid
ence for us in the Portland liquor
cases, there would not be one word
of criticism by anybody," he said.
"None of us knew McCabe was
under 21. He had been making
his own way in the world for five
years. By the use of detectives,
who were known," we could not land
the evidence desired to convict
those who were violating the law.
We knew that girls were frequent
ing the saloons and that they were
being given drinks there. ; What
we had to have was some one other
than a regular detective to play the
role, and that is what McCabe did
for us. With the evidence secured
a number of convictions .followed
and that is the reason so much noise
has been made about the matter. It
is the exposure of the vice in the
courts that causes those who coun
tenance it to raise the howl."
There is a warrant out for the
arrest of Mr. Radir, because of the
McCabe affair. It was sworn out
by Crofton, manager of the inter
ests of the Wholsale Liquor Deal
ers Association. While here,. Mr.
Radir communicated with the dis
trict attorney, and offered to come
to Portland at any time for trial, but
was notified that the case could not
be reached until next week.:
Mr. Radir is president of. the an
ti-saloon league with headquarters
at Portland. The main purpose of
the society is the defense of the lo
cal option law. A thorough or
ganization is promoted to resist tne
Jayne bill which the Liquor Deal
