The Puget Sound bowlers who arrived
last evening- were given an enthusiastic
welcome, and also two defeats by the
teams of the Multnomahand Commercial
Clubs. The Multnomah Club bowlers
were In line form and took four straight
games from the Seattle Athletic Club.
The Commercial Club men took three
games out of four from the Olympic Club
team of Tacoma. The visitors played In
good form on the unfamiliar alleys, and
accepted their defeats as true sports
men. At both clubs there was a good
attendance of bowling enthusiasts, and
lucky strikes by the local men and the
visitors were cheered Impartially.
The big scores were made at the Mult
nomah Club, where the Seattle Athletic
Club was bowling. Nelson, of Seattle,
made the highest game score of 65, and
four game score of 215, bowling in excel
lent form. Craft led the Multnomahs
with a total of 192, and the best game
score of 62. The outcome of the contest

the best team in the Northwest, as the
Seattle team recently defeated the Ta
coma Club six games out of eight, and
the Multnomah Club defeated the Com

The Seattle men bowled a splendid,
steady game and made a strong spurt

MULTNOMAH WOMEN 1VOX. "
Defeated St. Helen' Hall Team at
Basket-Ball, 7 to 5.
The Multnomah ladies' basket-ball team
deefated the SL Helens Hall team, at
the Multnomah Club last night by the
score of 7 to 5, after an exciting contest
In which the result was in doubt up to
the last few minutes of play. The game
was viewed by several hundred enthusi
astic spectators, who were about equally
divided in feeling, and who cheered their
favorites to the echo. The game was
fast and snappy, and as the score see
sawed back and forth, every one had a
chance to test their lung power to its ut
most ability. The victory of the fair
wearers of the winged "M" was due to
their superior physical condition and bet
ter team work. Both these points told
heavily In the second half, and enabled
the ladies to pull victory out of what at
one time seemed almost sure defeat. The
contest was most satisfactory in every
way, and the decisions of the umpire were
met without a word's protest, which was
In Itself one of the most pleasant features.
"Where so much of good playing was
shown on both sides It was difficult to pick
out the stars, but the all-round work of
Miss Hilda Hegele was perhaps the feat
ure of the evening. Miss Hegele was In
the game from start to finish, and al
though she was pitted against the most
formidable player of the rival organiza
tion, she bore off her share of the honors.
Miss "Wasserman's work was also of the
very best, and she distinguished herself
by throwing a difficult goal from the field.
Miss Murphy contributed largely to the
score by making two baskets and a third
that was not allowed. In fact, the whole
team played In splendid form. For the
Hall team Miss Lanyon carried off the
honors. She had the ad-antage of weight
and height, and made good use of both.
She scored all the points for her team
by her accurate goal throwing. Miss Car
lisle also did some excellent work.
The Game Itself.
The game was called a few minutes af
ter 9 o'clock and both teams were greet
ed with hearty applause as they came on
the floor. All through the first half the
play was fast and furious on both sides.
The only points made were by Miss Lan
yon, of the Hall, who threw a basket from
a foul by Multnomah, so that when time
was called the score was St. Helens Hall
1, Multnomah 0.
The fine work all came In the second
half. The Multnomah team took a very
decided brace, and, after a few minutes
of play. Miss Wassermann threw a basket
from the field, putting her team over in
the lead. The supporters of St. Helens'
Hall soon had a chance to yell, however,
for on two successive fouls Miss Lanyon
threw two baskets and the Hall was one
ahead. A few minutes later Miss Helege
tied the score on a throw from a foul.
"With the score three to three both teams
worked hard, but the Multnomah team
work, which had been Improving steadily,
and their good condition told heavily, and
Miss Murphy soon threw a basket from
the field, and later duplicated the perform
ance. This was Multnomah's last scoring.
A minute before time was called Miss
Lanyon threw a pretty basket and the
final score was 7 to 5. The line-up with

- SUCCESSFUL PAPER CHASE.
Portland Ilnnt Club Ilode at Hare
and Honnds Yesterday.
The paper chase yesterday afternoon,
In spite jof the bitter cold and Intermit
tent showers, drew out the largest and
most picturesque crowd of the season
Over 50 riders gathered at the starting
place near the D. P. Thompson school,
and the horses and their riders, with
here and there a dash of red contrasting
with sober black habits, making a very
pretty sight At the finish on the boule
vard near the starting place, a large
crowd of spectators had gathered, pedes
trians, horsemen and women, and a
number in various equipages.
A quarter mile from the flag at the fin
ish, the hounds were lined up for the
dash in. At the starting signal, down
the home stretch the riders went at full
gallop, about 20 abreast in the front rank,
straining every nerve for place. Men
without caps, girls with hair streaming
in the breeze, past the finishing point
they swept. Near the end of the dash
John Latta forged to the front at least
two lengths and came in first, with Ham
ilton Corbett second, and all the riders
well bunched. ,
Ambrose Cronln and E. T. Chase were
the hares and laid a deceptive trail for
the honds. The latter lost the course
completely at one point, where the wind
had obliterated all the traces of the pa
per scent thrown out by the riders. The
hares finished at least 15 minutes before
the hounds came down the home-stretch.
The ride proved enjoyable and exhil
arating In spite of the bitter cold and
the rain at the finish. About 35 riders In
all went over the course.
On the Golf Links.
There was a large turn-out yesterday on
the Waverly Golf Club's links,. Fully 100
people went over the new course, and the
changes which have been made by the
greens committee were much appreciated.
In the morning the men's singles compe
tltjon resulted In a tie between P. B.
Glfford and A. A. Wright. Mr. Gifford's
actual score was. 94. handicap 1; net, 93.
Mr. Wright's score was SS, handicap 3;
net, 93. The scores of the next two play
ers were also tied. J. E. Young making
98. handicap 3; net 93: and T. P. Futcher
scoring 103, handicap 8, net 95.
The first prize In the mixed foursomes
competition In the afternoon was won by
A. L. Mills and Mrs. H. C. Wilson, with
a score of 115, handicap 10: net, 105. W.
W. Cotton and Mrs. Ben Campbell took
the second prize with a score of 122, handi
cap 16; net, 105. The next best score was
made by B. Mackay and Miss King, with
115. handicap 7, net 108.
All of the matches were finished before
the rain, and the day was fine for golfing.

Sketches of M. J. Mailer, P. L. Willis
and L. T. Peery.
M. J. Malley is a native of Philadelphia,
3S years of age, and for the past 13 years
has been a resident of this city and t en
gaged continuously and successfully in
the grocery business for the past five
years at the corner of Third and Ankeny
streets. He has always been a Democrat
of the liberal type, and has never taken
an active part In politics, but was always
willing to help the party or a friend.. He
resides at 55 North Seventh. He says he
never sought the office or had any Idea
of getting It. About a week ago two Sen
ators asked him if he would accept the
office, but he did not give them a decided
answer. Yesterday he received a telegram
asking him to give a decision, and he
replied that If It would be for the good
of the party he would. An hour or two
after he received congratulations on his
appointment. Mr. Malley stands well In
the business community, and Is a genial,
jovial, straightforward man who has hosts
P. L. Willis, the minority member of
the commission. Is a lawyer. He is a Re
publican of strong Mitchell proclivities.
He made his first appearance in politics
as a delegate from Marion County to the
union state convention which met at Cor
vallls, March 29. 1866. He was a delegate
from Marion County to the Republican
State Convention of 1870, and from Mult
nomah County to the State Convention of
1890. In 1895 and 1896 he sat In the con
ventions of the Republican League of
Oregon. In 1896 he was a Mitchell dele
gate to the State and Second Congres
sional District Republican Conventions.
In 1890 the Lotan faction cleaned out the
Simon faction in the Multnomah County
primaries, and Mr. Willis was nominated
for State Senator. The Democrats nomi
nated ex-County Judge John Catlln, and,
though Mr. Willis was cut by many of the
Simon people, he pulled through and
served at the sessions of 1S91 and 1893.
L. T. Peery is a hidebound Democrat.
He was elected to the City Council from
Alblna In 1896. In January, 1S9S, he sold
his grocery store and took a stock of
goods to Alaska. Shortly after he re
signed his seat In the Council and was
succeeded by Martin Wallace. Mr. Peery
was In business In Alaska until about
nine months ago, when he returned and
began dealing in real estate.
Had to Walt for Conductor.
A delegation of Portlanders who went
to Salem Thursday evening experienced a
delay from a rather singular cause. At
some station about half way to Salem,
while the conductor was In the telegraph
room waiting for orders, the train
started off without him. His absence was
discovered by the time the next station
was reached, and the train was side
tracked until he came up. The conductor
who had chartered a gang of section
hands and a hand car and started In
pursuit of his runaway train, soon ar
rived, and assumed command. None of
the passengers could find out how the
train came" -to start without the con
ductor, and he did not know.
A little medicine-of the right kind, taken
at the right time. is Invaluable. That

NORTH BEACH TIDE LANDS
HOW POttTLAKDBItS MAY PnOTEeT
Washington Legislature, Is Consider
lag a BUI to .Make thc-llfraco
Beach a Pabllc Illgrhirar.
Somo misunderstanding about the II
waco Beach tldelands seems to prevail
here, and the following statement show
ing their present status will interest
many Portlanders who own property
along Nerth Beach
Under Ihe laws Of the .Slate, of Wash
ington the ocean tldelands may be leased
or purchased. Last Spring some people
living at Seattle attempted to lease all
the tldelands brt Long Beach, a distance
of some 23 ot 23 miles, excepting one sec
tlort lh front of what 1b called the Tinker
claim, the tldelands. ih front of the Tinker
claim being one mile.
Lands which are to be purchased or
leased from the state are put up at public
auction at the county seat, and all these
tldelands were so offered .for sale or lease
at South Bend last June.
For the purpose of protecting certain
parts of the beach. H. W. Corbett, Jacob
Kamm and Frederick V. Holman leased
M. J. MALfcEY.
OXE OF THE NEW FIRE
about 3Vi miles of this beach for the term
of five years. The parts of the beach
leased by Mr. Corbett and Mr. Holman
extend from North Head up to Tinker's
south line what is locally called "Long
Beach." Mr. Kamm's land Is situated
several miles further up the beach In
front of what is known as the Easter
These Seattle people purchased the mile
of tldelands in front of Tinker's claim,
and ia r flve years all the rest of
uie beach, being distance of about 20
miles. This purchase or iand Was made
on a time contract, such as it. ordinarily
entered Into In the sale of state iands
In Washington. These Seattle peoplt.
claim that In addition to the contract for
the sale of this mile of tldeland they
have certain reserved rights of purchase
under said leases.
A bill was Introduced in the Washing
ton -State Senateby Mr. Megler declaring
this beach a public highway, and provid
ing that no conveyance of said tldelands
should ever be made, and also providing
that the holders or ail leases or contracts
of sale could surrender the same for
cancellation to the state authorities.
A serious legal question, however, arises
as to the power of the state byalaw to
do away with rights which th'e 'state has
granted to individuals. This question
arises under the Constitution of the
United .States prohibiting a state from
passing any law .violating the obligation
of contracts. And unless these contracts
and lease are canceled, the bill may be
defeated before the Legislature, or, If It
passes, be set aside by th'e courts.
These Seattle people assert that .they
have, been jo the texpense," outside of
moneys paid on these contracts and
leases, of about $500. and while the bill
has passed the Senate, they say that it
cannot pass the House and become a law
unless thls money Is paid to them, and
these contracts and leases canceled.
It Is therefore of the utmost Import
ance to all people Interested In the beach
that this $500 be raised Immediately, so
that there can be. no objection to .the
passage of the bill or to Its legality.
Messrs. Corbett, Kamm and Holman sim
ply took their leases for their own pro
tection and for the protection ot .others
along the beach, and will surrender their
leases for cancellation without any claim
for compensation from the other beach
owners. Some money has already been
subscribed, but all persons Interested
should subscribe without delay, so that
this sum of $500 may be, raised forth
with, In order that all opposition to the
passage of the.blll will cease. Subscrip
tions may be made to Frank Hncheney.
Some persons on the beach have pur
chased school lands, and have an Idea
that that Includes the tldelands.. But
that is not true. In the sale of school
lands the State of Washington docs not
part with any of the tldelands in front
thereof. All lands sold by the State of
Washington, except .tldelands, only go to
the ordinary high-water mark. Ocean
tldelands are sold by the linear chain.
"The Eleventh Hour."
All true lovers of melodrama, pathos,
wit and humor should see "The Eleventh
Hour," which comes to Cordray's Sunday
and all next week, with a souvenir mat
inee Saturday. This will be the first pro
duction of this play In this city. It has
met with the most pronounced success
everywhere that it has appeared this sea
son, and Is pronounced by press and pub
lic to be Lincoln J. Carter's greatest ef
fort, and if box-office receipts are a crite
rion to go by, "The Eleventh Hour" is
certainly a winner.
The play Is gorgeously equipped with
scenery by Messrs. Buhler and Mann, the
well-known scenic artists. The properties
and effects are said to be superb. The last
act. the millionaire's drawing-room, 'is
said to be the handsomest and most ex
pensive stage setting that has ever been
"Uncle Tom's Obln."
When will the time come when "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" will lose Its charm to the
rising generation? Judging by its present
freshness, its alluring powers will be pe
rennial. There-is something in the skill
ful combination of the pathetic and hu-
morous tbs-t never fall to- fascinate, rod
the story that it tells of the suffering of
of the poor slaves appeals directly to the
finest sensibilities of the human soul.

Neither Is she "desexed." whatever that

LITTLE FIGHTING NOW
FILIPINO REBELLION OX ITS LAST
Returning Soldiers Tell Hovr Close
Imprisonment of Tafrals Has
Met With Good Results.
Many members of the Thirty-seventh
United States Volunteers are passing
through Portland In spuads of 20 or so, to
their homes In the East these days. The
regiment was discharged last week at
the Presidio, after having returned from
Luzon, where the boys saw on an av
erage about 20 month's service chasing
Tagals. They all agree that the rebel
lion is on its last legs, having long slnco
petered out into desultory skirmishes In
which a score or so of insurgents beat
a hasty retreat after firing a few shots
The old method of capturing Filipinos,
keeping them In the guard house for a
few weeks and turning them loose again,
with a few dollars In their pockets, after
the trecherous little fellows had fattened
up, Is now giving place to the more effect
ive one of sending the prisoners to an
Island where they are kept from further
mischief by a strong guard. Good re
sults are already apparent from this new
scheme, according to these boys, and the
final total purification of Luzon is only a
question of a short time.
The returning volunteers are all young
men, some mere bbys, but they are all
glad to get away from the Philippines
and some of them express a desire to
never see Manila again. The hot weather
is the main objection they make when
asked their reason, as even the rains
are of a warm, sickly nature that is con
duslve to growth In the swampy rice
paddocks, as well as of malaria In the
human system. Few, If any, of the sol
diers passing through Portland have es
caped the ravages of dysentery, malaria,
or mountain fever, and the high alti
tudes are reported fully as sickly as the
marshes. The food furnished by the Gov
ernment, they think. Is not adapted to
a tropical climate, as It consists of bacon,
salt beef and canned salmon. The beans
are always welcome and considered
healthful, while rice has become quite a
favorite dish In consequence of it being
easy to digest.
A large number of soldiers will be dis
charged between now and June In the
Philippines, and these boys think quite
n proportion of them will pass through
Portland on their return to the various
states where they were mustered in. The
Eleventh cavalry, they say, will soon
close Its career In Luzon, while all regi
ments from the Twenty-sixth to the
Forty- ninth will have completed their
term of enlistment early In the Summer.
The soldiers passing through Portland say
they prefer this route homeward, on ac
count of the scenery, the cost of reaching
their homes being the same over all
routes. They go East from here mostly
over the O. R. & N. and Union Pacific.

May Not Accept Offer for Patent.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 18. Now that
there Is probably to be an appropriation
of $100,000 for buying the exclusive right
to the high explosive thorite. Invented
by Dr. Tuttle, of Tacoma, In conjunction
with the Isham shell, there Is consider
able speculation In Washington, particu
larly at the War Department, as to wheth
er or not the two Inventors will agree to
sell their patent rights for this sum. It
Is claimed that they have been to a very
considerable expense in producing this
explosive shell, and that the sum named
will not compensate them In anything lllce
the degree they ask. It will be recalled
that Dr. Tuttle asks 5100.000 for his patent
to thorite, while Mr. Isham asks the same
amount for the shell patent. The mem
bers of the delegation from Washington
have not had any Intimation as to the
intention of Dr. Tuttle, but are Inclined to
the opinion that Jie should receive more
than the $50,000 he would receive under the
pending bill. In case this Is declined, an
effort will be made at the next session
to have the full amount asked appropriat
ed for this purpose.
