JEFFORDS KNOCKED OUT
Hfi LASTED TWO BOUXDS BEFORE
A RIsIit-Hand Blow on the Stomach.
and Another on the Chin Settled
BALTIMORE, Nov. 8. Peter Maher put
a sudden stop to the championship aspira
tions of Jim Jeffords, of California, to
night, in the second round of what was
to Ivave been a 10-round contest, before
the Eureka Athletic Club, at Germania,
Maennerchor Hall. Both men stripped as
fit &b a fiddle, with Jeffords having all
the best of It in height and reach. The
first round began with a light punch and a
clinch, after which both men landed light,
ly and clinched again. Then Jeffords
touched Peter with a right on the ribs and
they came to a clinch. As they broke
away Jeffords touched Peter on the chin
and the latter growled about a foul,
which the referee declined to allow. Jef
fords landed lightly again, and, After an
other clinch, touched Peter on the ribs
and they locked arms once more. When
they broke away they sparred a while.
Peter sent his right to the head without
effect. The bell rang with honors easy.
In the second round Maher swung his
right to the body. They mixed it and ex
changed a series of right and left swings.
In which Jeffords got a hard right punch
on the Jaw and went to the floor. He lay
there until the referee counted five. When
he got up they mixed again, both sending
In hard rights and lefts to the ribs and
face. Peter go it this time with a stiff
right jab in the neck, going to the floor,
and, on the advice if his seconds, stayed
down until sir was counted. When he got
up they mixed it again, and, after a mu
tual exchange of half a dozen terrific
rights and lefts, Maher sent his right to
the stomach and immediately landed on
the chin with the same hand, and Jef
fords was down and out. Time, one min
ute and four seconds.
JACK GRIM IS RELEASED.
Portland Club-Will Get Alons With
out n. Playingr-Mnnagcr.
John J. Grim will not be the playing
manager of the Portland Baseball Club's
team next year. Grim was on the list of
the players reserved, but several weeks
ago a story came to him that he was
not to be kept on the team; so he
pressed matters and asked the directors
of the club what disposal they had in
store for him. The result was that Grim
received a note from the club this week
informing him that he had been re
leased from his reserve, or In other
words that his services would not be
required any longer.
Grim was a little rattled by the action
taken by the club, chiefly, he says, be
cause tney did not notify him at the
end of the season that they intended
to get along without him for the next
season. His reserve was submitted to
President Powers, of the National As
sociation of Professional Baseball
Leagues, and published in all of the local
and a number of the Eastern papers..ThIs
Grim says greatly reduoes his chances of
landing a managership next season, as
the baseball magnates who had any de
signs on him would suppose that he was
engaged for next season. He hid a chance
to get the position of manager on the
Spokane team, but with the publication
of his reservation the Spokane Club
opened negotiations for another man.
The club directors state their reason
for releasing Grim as being because they
wised to reduce the club's expenses by
having the secretary of the club attend
to all the management, and have the
team upon the field controlled by a cap
tain. They could not see any necessity
of paying a man a large salary and his
expenses for traveling around with the
team and not playing ball.
As to whether a playlng-manager, such
a? Grim was last season, is advisable is
an open question. Many contend that
without Grim the Portland team could
not have made the showing that It did
this year. Grim, while he did not play
In many of the games, was always on
the field to direct the team.
The directors of the Portland Baseball
Club have issued their first annual re
port of the expenditures and receipts of
the club. A cash balance of $719 60 is
shown, not including -the $500 guaranty
fund. During the season 53,441 general
admission tickets were sold for the games
played in Portland. Of the amount real
ized from these sales 10 per cent went to
the league sinking fund, and the balance
was divided equally between the contest
ing teams, the home team, however, tak
ing all of the grandstand receipts, except
Tacoma was the best drawing team in
this city, the club realizing over $400
more from the games played with that
team than from those played either with
Spokane or Seattle. However, when on
the road the games in Tacoma netted
less than in either of the other cities.
Spokane paid the local team best in the
The club fully expected to be able to
declare a dividend on the stock this
season, but the poor attendance at the
games during the last three weeks the
team was on the road did not come near
to covering the expenses of the trip.
Of course this greatly decreased the sur
plus In the treasury and the directors did
not deem it advisable to declare a divi
dend. As it is. the club will have no
trouble in starting the season next year,
while In case a dividend was paid it
might necessitate the asking of more
money at the beginning of next season.

MULTXOSIA1I VS. CHEMAWA.
Football Game on Mnltnomah Field
The football team of the Multnomah
Amateur Athletic Club will play the Che
mawa Indians on Multnomah Field at 3
o'clock this afternoon. The game gives
every promise of being one" of the best
of the season, and Manager Buckenmeyer
expects a large crowd of spectators. The
Indians team is stronger than ever this!
year, as was shown when they held the
Oregon eleven down to a small score two
weeks ago. The playing of the Chemawa
men at Eugene drew forth many favorable
comments, and disinterested spectators
say that Chemawa can be counted in
the same class with Oregon and Mult
nomah. Bishop, of Salem, who may play
with the Indians, Is a sure ground-gainer.
Ruben Sanders, the crack fullback of the
Indian eleven, Is noted all over the Coast
for his line-bucking ability, and those who
have seen him In a game know that he
understands his- position.
The Multnomah team has been doing
hard work this week. Captain Kerrigan
has been out each evening with his men,
and the team Is in much better shape
than it was last Saturday' at Eugene. Mc-
Kenzle, tvho played on The Dalles team
last year, will go In as left halfback, and
will no doubt strengthen the team ma
terially. Multnomah has Improved its
team work considerably, so ought to be
in good condition to withstand the power
ful rushes of the Indian backs.

PULLMAN, Wash., Nov. 8. The foot
ball game between the Washington Agri
cultural College and the University of
Oregon, which will be played here to

the visitors about 12 pounds to the man,
but the latter have something of an ad
vantage in speed and teamwork. How
ever, Oregon Is materially weakened" by
the loss of Murphy and McBrlde, who

Massachusetts Insane Asylum.
HYDE PARK, Mass., Nov. 8. Adolph
F. Kraus, the famous sculptor, died in
Danvers Insane Asylum last night Mr.
Kraus had been receiving treatment at the
institution since last July. He was 51
years of age. A widow, four sons and
two daughters survive him. A pensioner
of the Prussian Government and a win
ner of the grand prize of Rome, the name
of the sculptor was established In Eu
rope before he came1 to America In 1SS1.
In this country he continued to win fame,
and It was the disappointment of his am
bition to produce a masterpiece which is
aald to have caused his mind to give way.
He had partially completed a model in
clay of a heroic figure of Belshazzar at
the moment of seeing the handwriting on
the wall when his mind became unbal
anced. Among his noted pieces In Amer
ica are the Theodore Parker and the Cris
pus Attucks monuments. He was the
sculptor of the winged figures of Victory
that crowned the towers of machinery
hall at the world's fair at Chicago, and
which received great admiration.

COURT'S NEW QUARTERS.
Will Not Take Tip the Case Until Kext
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. The Schley
court of inquiry today transferred its
effects, from the gunners' workshop in the
Navy-Yard to the uptown quarters in the
McLean Building, Vermont avenue and
H streets, which will be the consulting
quarters. No effort will be mad,e by the
members of the court even to confer upon
the case, however, before next Monday,
as they are In need of mental and phys
ical rest. The court will ask the Navy
Department to supply It with clerical
assistance and a stenographer to do the
mechanical work involved in the prepara
tion of the report In order that the
court may absolutely control such assist
ants. It is probable that recourse will be
had to men In the naval service, such
as yeomen, who are subject to naval dis
cipline. Captain Lemly, Judge-Advocate of
the court, has gone to Kansas City, Mo.,
to attend the meeting of the National
Prison Reform Association, in which he Is
interested by reason of the fact that he
is specially charged with the conduct of
the naval prisons at Boston, Norfolk and

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. The Pension
Bureau is investigating utterances attrib
uted to Dr. Mary Walker, the ex-Army
nurse, who has worn masculine attire in
recent years, and who is alleged to have

sassin, a murder, and the late President

MATTERS BEFORE THE CABINET.
Captain Carter's Rehearing: and the
WASHINGTON, Nov. A The Cabinet
meeting today developed the fact that
there exists an entire misapprehension
concerning the legal proceedings which
are to take place in Chicago In the case
of Captain Oberlln M. Carter. Attorney-General
Knox explained to the Cabi
net .today that Captain Carter was not
to be given a new trial before Judge
Kohlsaat, as has been erroneously re
ported. The Government has attached
$150,000 of the property belonging to Cap
tain Carter, and the question which will
be tried before Judge Kohlsaat relates
only to the title of that property. Attorney-General
Knox said that with the
$150,000 which the government will soon
recover, the total amount restored to the
Government will foot up to over $500,000.
A considerable portion of the Cabinet
meeting today was devoted to talking over
the plans of the National McKinley
Memorial Association. Before the Cabinet
met formally, Senator Hanna discussed
the subject with the President and Cabi
net. He explained the necessity for ab
solute harmony between the association
of which he is trustee and the McKinley
Memorial Arch Association, of this city,
but argued that In seeking popular sub
scriptions the former organization, which
plans the erection of a suitable monument
at Canton, should have the right of way.
Senator Hanna thought that about $750,000
should be used In the erection of a suit
Secretary Root Is somewhat perplexed
In preparing his annual report on ac
count of the delay In receiving the report
from the Philippine Commission. The
commission's report, together with a spe
cial envoy sent to the Philippines to re
port on the banking and currency condi
tions of the Islands, left Manila on the
transport Sheridan. Two weeks ago the
Sheridan broke down In Japan, and the
Warren was ordered to bring her pas
sengers and important mail. A few days
ago the Warren broke down and the
Hancock Has just sailed from Manila to
take, her place. These accidents will pre
vent the report of the Philippine Com
mission, ps well as the report of the
special representative on currency, from
reaching Secretary Root In time to be
used In his annual report Meanwhile,
he is using such information as already
has been prepared in the Bureau of In
sular Affairs, but It Is likely that a sup
plemental report will be made by the
Secretary covering the Philippines and
based on the commission's report.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 8. President
Roosevelt has decided not to make any
more appointments of Importance until
Congress meets. All recess appointees
must be reappointed on the re-assem-bllng
of Congress, and the President
thinks that all the larger appointments
should be held up until he can send the
names directly to the Senate. No Imme
diate action, therefore, will be taken In
the case of the appralsershlp and collec
torshlp of the Port of New York.
The President has appoinated Thomas
Swobe, of Michigan, an assistant Quar
termaster In the Army, with the rank
of Captain, to fill a vacancy. Captain
Swobe was a naval war veteran, and also
served as Captain and assistant Quarter
master of volunteers during the recent
war with Spain. The following appoint
ments were also made:
Majors of Infantry, "William Nichols,
Colville P. Ferrett, Nat P. Phlster. Alexis

. Memorial Ansoclntlon's Plans.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. The plans of
the two associations formed for the pur
pose of erecting memorials to the late
President McKinley, the monument at
Canton and the memorial arch at Wash
ington, were the subject of an Informal
conference today between Senator Hanna
and Secretary Cortelyou, representing the
Ohio organization, and Commissioner H.

with the many other material improvements of
the age. The many

to meet the above conditions a laxative should
be wholly free from every objectionable quality
or substance, with its component parts simple
and wholesome and it should act pleasantly
and gently without disturbing the natural
functions in any way. The laxative which
fulfils most perfectly the requirements, in the
highest degree, is

undertaken by the two bodies, and an. ex

It Is expected that this cable will materi

GREAT WEALTH OF ALASKA
Its Resources Bnrely Touched
IMcnsant to Live in SltUn.
W. L. Dlatln, Surveyor-General of Alas- J
ka, is at the Imperial, accompanied by his
wife. He has lived in Sitka for the past j
four years, or since he was appointed,
on the creation of the office and likes the
country very much. "We have a cli
mate that strongly resemb.cd that ot 1
Puget Sound," he said, "although more
snow falls in the Winter time. We think '
Sitka is quite a pleasant place to live in,
although matters are In a somewhat
crude state yet. The population of the J
town, including Indians, Is about 1200, and
there are quite a number of Government t
officials quartered there. This adds to
the social advantages of the place, and, as
we have been getting mall from the States
twice a month, we are not so far out of
the world as many suppose. Hereafter
we will have four mails monthly."
General Dlstln thinks Alaska Is going
to prove Itself of Increasing richness, as j
its resources are developed. "Our mineral .
wealth alone will keep people digging and j
building for centuries," he said, "'ana our
fisheries and canneries are increasing from
year to year. I cannot say much for ac
rlculture, however, although there aro a
great many fertile areas where vegetation
thrives with remarkable vigor, considering
the latitude of the -country. The Govern
ment has land offices located at Sitka. St.
Michael and Rampart City, and a great
many homestead entries are being. mad
at each of these. Homesteaders, how
ever, are only allowed W acres In Alaska,
and I think they should be given 160.
"Very little Government surveying has
been done In the territory yet, and this
has been confined to the southeastern part.
The face of the country Is usually very
mountainous and so surveys, have been
confined to the localities where settle
ment has rendered them necessary. My
deputies are mostly engaged in mining or
some other business on their own account
and so do not work for the Government
constantly. The reports from deputies
all over the territory all agree as to the
undeveloped mineral resources of each re
gion and I consider the whole territory
a veritable mine of wealth."
General Dlstln and wife will remain a
few days In Portland, .before returning
to Alaska about the middle of the pres
ent month. In speaking of his impres
sions of Portland, he said: "I admire the
city very much and I consider It secure
In the Important position It has gained In
the .Northwest. Its solidity, size, and
evidences of wealth cannot help Impres
sing strangers who take advantage of a
few days' stay by traveling about the
city and visiting Its many points of Inter
est. It seems to me that I should like
to live here very much." General Dlstln's
home is In Qulncy, 111.

PRUDENT WITH PARK MONEY
Commission linn to Go Sloiv Because
of Limited Fundi.
The Park Commission has been going
slow in the matter of creating expanses
of late, and tome reductions have been
made in the force. "The sum of $14,0t0
does not go very far when there is to
much park improving to do," one of the
commissioners said yesterday, "and wc
have been buying considerable machlnery
and implements with which to carry on
the work. The turn of one-half a mUl
was set aside out of the total levy this
year, and we have been trjlng to keep
within the limit In carrying on the Im
provements to each of the city's parks.
Next year the s-um total realized from this
half-mill tax may reach $15,000 or $16.0W,
according to the assessed valuation of
the city, and we can proceed with Biore
"In the Spring we shall improvth

thrifty young firs and maples which an
now of the right age to transplant and
these will be set out where they will .Jo

"This tract contains 29 acre and about
10 acres have been cleared and cultivated
for several years, the city hazing leased
this portion. Grass will be planted in
this and the place beautified in such a
way that the people of University Park.
Portsmouth and St. Johns will have a
pleasant place In which to spend Summer
afternoons. This tract cost the old town
of Alblna $5u,)0 before consolidation an
the city is now paying 53000 a year In
terest on the bonds. The tract fe a Hnf
one, however, ami will become, more, val
uable as the years advance, and tht por
tion of the city becomes more densely pop

ject of leasing the Hawthorne Parn, on the
East Side, and a special meeting may b
called next week to debate on It. Th
proximity of this park to the thickly .set
tled portion of that section makes it iv
very desirable acquisition and It is likely
the Commissioners and the Hawthorne
estate will come to term in the ,mitt r
of turning It over to the city.
