XMAS GAME WITH CHEMAWA.
Multnomah Makes Arrangement
With Indian Eleven.
Arrangements are now being made for
a Christmas football game between the
M. A. A. C. team and the Chemawa In
dians. It will be remembered that Che
mawa played Multnomah on November 9,
and that the clubmen, by the hardest
kind of work, won the game, by a score
of 5 to 0. Since then the Indians have
had the experience of a number of hard
games, so they will be In goodjshape to
meet the clubmen. It is understood that
the Chemawa eleven will be reinforced
by a number of Salem players, including
Bishop, he crack halfback. Bishop
played with the Indians in the first game
with Multnomah, a-nd made good yardage
whenever he carried the ball. His friends
say that he Is the best ground-gainer in
the entire Northwest superior even to his
older brother, who was Eugene's crack
halfback a few years. As Sanders has
played with both Multnomah and Che
mawa this year, and knows the signals
of both teams, it is not likely that he will
be in the line-up on Christmas day. Mult
nomah will feel the loss of Sanders keenly,
a he was one of the stars on Thanks
giving day. -
The New Year's football game, which
will be played in this city between the
teams of the Multnomah and Reliance
Athletic Clubs, promises to be of excep
tional interest. The Oakland eleven is
composed of ex-college stars, and the line
is a very heavy one. That Reliance can
play good football has often been demon
strated this season, as close games have
been played with the crack elevens of
Stanford and Berkeley. On Thanksgiving
day. Reliance lost to Olympic, the score
belrg 2 to 0. The Olympic team is one of
the best football aggregations on the
Coast, but Reliance succeeded In holding
the eleven down to the smallest possible
yeore. The game on New Year's day
ought o be a most Interesting exhibition
of modern football, as the elevens are
very evenly matched. Some have ventured
the opinion that Multnomah will win out,
while the more conservative critics say
that the local eleven has a fighting chance
to do so. In Woodruff, McMillan, Dolph,
Pratt, Downs and Kerrigan, Multnomah
has some of the cleverest players on tne
Pacific Coast. Multnomah's team work is
exceptionally good this year, as was dem
onstrated in the games with Oregon and
Washington- The line has stood like a
stone wall against the assaults of all op
posing teams". Multnomah certainly has a
strong eleven, and the Reliance players
will meet men full worthy of their steel
The M. A. A. C. football team has not
done any hard practice since the Thanks
giving game, but will resume active work
Considerable interest is being taken m
the provable Joufcfome of the Michigan
Stanford football game, which occurs at
Pasadena, on January L Michigan has an
exceptionally strong eleven this year, and
ought to win the game, although Stanford
will, doubtless, make an excellent show
ing. A good many people think that the
Michigan team Is the strongest one in lha
country this year

A. G. SPALDING
X. G. Spalding wh elected to
the position at president of the Na

to succeed Nldc Young. Mr.
Spalding is looked upon as the
one man who can restore peace be
tween the rival American and Na
tional Leagues. His reputation as
a promoter of baseball is well
known to all the followers of the
diamond sport, and In the coming
season his word may be looked
upon an the law among the Na

shoulders on the mat. The contestants
are la earnest, and the science, strength
and agility exhibited In the robust sport
make it exciting, but the directors of the
club consider wrestling so unobjectionable
that ladles will be admitted, and it is
confidently expected that they will gen
erally avail themselves of the privilege.
The tournament Is open to all ama
teurs of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Mon
tana and British Columbia, and will be
for the amateur championship of the
Northwest In the respective classes. A
sanction has been obtained from the Am
ateur Athletic "Union, so the title won by
the victors will be official, and all con
testants will exert themselves to the ut
most. Appropriate gold medals will be
presented to the winners of first and sec
onds In each of the five classes. Entries
close at noon December 17.
The entry sheet for the tournament so
far Includes 18 men. It Is expected there
will be at least 25 before the entries are
declared closed. With one exception,
Frank McKenzle, of Pacific University,
all of 'the athletes so far entered are
members of the Multnomah Club.
The fact that there are not a number
of outside entries is a great disappoint
ment to the lovers of the sport. When
the circular announcing the tournament
were first Issued, It was expected that a
large number of outsiders would take
part. The local Y. M. C. A. was ex
pected to make a number of entries, but
so far nothing has been heard from them.
The Turn Vereln, of this city, should also
have some wrestlers who" would be willing
to try to win the championship. The
Seattle Athletic Club has a number of
good men, but they have failed to enter.
In Spokane and Tacoma there are wres
tlers, but no entries have been received.
And in Idaho, Montana and British
Columbia there should be some to repre
sent those states. What is the matter
with these people? Is the Interest in
amateur sport on the decline, that there
are no entries made? Or are these men
afraid to go up against the local wrestlers?
Certainly, when it is known for a fact
that nearly all of these places have wres
tlers and no entries are received, it looks
like nothing more than, a case of "cold
feeL" It is too bad that the tali end of
a blizzard affects the Northwest athletes
in that manner.
Entries and Weights.
The entries, with their weights, up to
date are: H. W. Kerrigan (135), A. W.
Phllpot (115). A. C. Gilbert (115). Richard
Price (135). Frank McKenzlo (125), John
McCallig (135-145), H. H. Rasch 058), J.
Alex DeFrance (135-145), C. G. Whitcomb
(135), B. Johnson (145), Kenneth Fenton
(115), R. A. Lamberson (IBS), Henry Frank
(125), Burr Struble (125), Ted Wood 035),
Ed Frohman (125). Edgar Frank (115),
Chester Hughes 025).
It will be noted that the entries Include
all of the five weights bantam, 115
pounds; feather. 125 pounds; light, 135
pounds; welter, 145 pounds, and middle,
15S pounds. Two men. McCallig and Da
France, will try for both light and welter
weight honors. They are both clever, and
perhaps the most Interest centers In their
bouts. Ed Johnson, the middle-weight,
has been far from well for the last three
weeks and may not be able to take nart
in the tourney.
Wrestlers from outside points would
add zest to the contests, but if none come
to the scratch there will bi no lack of
good, clean, scientific sport, as the men
entered are all out to win, and besides
possess a wrestling ability of a high or
der, the result of the teaching of the
club's well-known instructor, Joe Acton,
the "Little Demon."
All the contests will be catch-as-catch-can;
any grip or hold, grip, lock or trip
to be allowed, except hammerlock, strang
ling and full Nelsop holds. The bouts
will be six minutes each, with a rest of
six between bouts for every contestant.

The girls of the Portland Academy have

time was up, and that the victory was

students say that their team was in the
lead when time was up, and therefore Is
entitled to the victory. However, they I
are perfectly willing that the game ba re

High School students contend that the
referee had not called time, and there

REDUCING THE REVENUES.
The Honae TVill Take Up the Ques
tion After the Holidays.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 15. Chairman'
Payne, of the ways and means committee,
says that no definite plans have been made
thus .for for considering the question of
further reducing the war taxes. At the
same time there has been much informal
discussion of the subject, much data has
been gathered concerning the items which
can be best reduced, and there seems to
be a general purpose on the part of the
members of the committee to push this
Important question to the front sbon after
the holidays. In speaking of the matter
today Mr. Payne said:
"With a surplus of about $100,000,000, I
have no doubt the ways and means com
mittee will frame a bill reducing the rev
enues, probably on the general lines of
the last war-tax reduction bill. But there
is no particular hurry in dealing with the
subject, as there are several contingencies
which may call for a large Increase in
Government expenditures, and it will be
well to understand pretty well what our
expenditures are to be before finally de
termining on a large reduction of the rev
enues. When we make the reduction we
ought to make It as large as can be made
with safety. In my judgment the com
mittee will take the matter up soon after
the holidays. Whether we will have hear
ings or not will depend upon the pleasure
of the committee."
In the absence of action by the com
mittee, Mr. Payne will not discuss the
prospects of reduction on particular items.
Already, however, several interests have
applied for hearings. These include the
representatives of the tea Interests, who
desire to have the 10-cent tax imposed
by the war revenue act taken off that
product. No formal application has been
made by the representatives of the beer
and wine Interests, but both are expected
to make strong efforts for reductions In
their respective taxes. Suggestions have
also reached members of the committee
that the war tax imposed on banking- cap
ital be taken off. Another proposition Is
for the doing away with the withdrawal
stamp taxes on imported merchandise,
particularly on tobacco, as these with
drawal stamps are said to be very oner
ous to Importers. The large tobacco In
terests have not yet made known what
further reduction they would seek on to
bacco, but the Independent producers of
manufactured tobacco and snuff are un

THE "WEEK IN CONGRESS.
Philippine ' Tariff B1U "Will Be
Passed hy the Honse.
WASHINGTON, Dec 15. The House
this week will pass the bill to provide
temporary revenues for the Philippine Isl
ands, which was reported from the ways
and means committee last Friday. Under
the agreement made, general debate will
extend throughout Tuesday and until 4
o'clock Wednesday, when a vote will be
taken. There will be no opportunity to
amend the measure. There will be no
break In the party lines on both sides of
the House. McCall (Rep. Mass.), the Re
publican member of the ways and means
committee, who opposed the, Porto RIcan
bill during the last Congress, will speak
against the measure and will be support
ed In his dissent from his Republican
colleagues by Iittlefleld (Rep. Me.), and
perhaps several other Republicans who
opposed the Porto Rlcan bill and who
hold that a similar Issue Is presented at
this time. On the Democratic side, Rob

means committee, will support the bill,

and the remainder of the Louisiana del
egation will do likewise. Representing
the cane-sugar Interests of their state,
they are opposed to concessions on sugar
duties, either from the Philippines or
Cuba. The general belief is that the bill
will secure as manj Democratic votes as
It loaes votes on the Republican side.
and that the majority In Its favor, when
placed upon Its passage, will be about
the Republican majority In the House.
The Senate Forecast.
The disposition of the Senate is to do
very little business beyond acting upon
the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, before ad
journment for the holidays. In accord
ance with the agreement Friday, the
treaty will be voted on before the Sen
ate adjourns tomorrow. Senator Teller
will make the first speech of the day to
morrow, and he will be followed by other
Senators with brief speeches. The oppo
nents of the treaty admit there Is no
doubt of Its ratification.
Tuesday the announcement of the
changes In committees will be made, and
there Is a probability that after this an
nouncement the Senate will adjourn un
til Thursday, when the adjournment for
the holidays will take place, extending to
January 6. If there are business sessions
Wednesday and Thursday, Senator Mor
gan will make an effort to secure action
on his bill authorizing the acquisition of
right of way for the Nicaragua Canal,
but Senators on the Republican sjde of
tlie chamber are Inclined to postpone all
important legislation until after the hol
idays. There probably will be action before
the adjournment Thursday on a numDer
of nominations, and the chances ara tnat
Attorney-General Knox's nomination will
be among those to receive attention. The
introduction of resolutions bearing on
the case of Admiral Schley 13 also among
tho probabilities, but no action in that
direction is anticipated for tho present.
