GOOD MEN ON GRIM'S LIST
SPOKANE BASEBALIi MANAGER OX
HUNT FOR NEW PLATERS.
Red-Hot FootbaU oil Christmas Day
Basket-Ball Game May Not
John J. Grim, formerly manager of the
Portland baseball team, but now manager
of the Spokane nine, arrived In Portland
yesterday morning. Grim Is here on a
trip around the circuit, looking after play
ers for his team next season. Next week
he intends to close a deal with several
Eastern players, but at present he 1? not
prepared to give out names. He is on
the lookout for any trades that may come
under his notice. "While the men he has
reserved are all good men, he wants to
have some new faces on the nine for next
year. Donahue, last year's third base
man, has been signed to play with the
team. He received a number of offers
from several American League teams, but
preferred to return to the Northwest.
Everything in the baseball line is run
ning smoothly in Spokane. The people
are taking an active Interest in the sport,
and promise to give strong support to the
team next season. A great deal of con
fidence is placed in their new manager,
and they realize that he will do his part
toward putting a pennant-winning team
in the field. There was some talk of put
ting In new grounds at Spokane, but It is
expected that the lease with the Spokane
Athletic Club will be renewed, and the
diamond remain in the same place as last
The proposition of bringing Butte, and
Helena into the league is still under con
sideration, but no action has been taken
in either direction. Grim, in speaking of
the matter, said: "As I understand the
situation, the only difficulty in the way Is
the matter of transportation."
At Seattle, Dugdale is busy making
preparations for the coming season. He
has signed a number of new men, and it
is quite likely that he will effect some
trades with Grim before the season opens.
Baseball promises to be more popular
than ever next season. It has been firmly
established in this territory, and has come
to stay. Besides, the Northwest League
next season, it is probable that a six-team
league will be going in Montana, Utah
GOOD UMPIRES ARE SCARCE.
Northwest Lcngnc Already Looking;
for Good Material.
A weighty question Is soon to come be
fore the officers of the Northwest Base
ball League. That Is, who are to be um
pires for next season. McDonald and
O'Connell, last year's staff, gave general
satisfaction In the league, but it is doubt
ful whether both of these men can be
secured for the coining season.
A rumor emanated from Spokane several
weeks ago that Ralph Dodd, manager of
the team there last season, was out for
the position. It Is said that he Is a cap
able man, and would make an efficient
umpire. But, outside of Spokane, the Im
pression is that Dodd would be a "frost"
as an umpire. In the first place his per
sonal appearance is against him. An
umpire should be a large man; at any rate,
of the average height. Dodd Is a small
man, and would have a hard time holding
the respect of the players as an umpire.
His smallness would be an incentive for
them to try and bulldoze him, and make
his position rather uncomfortable.
Portland has a man In Ed Rankin who
would be an artist In calling off the balls
and strikes. "Rankin has all the quali
fications for an umpire, as he has demon
strated to the Portland fans. He Is an
old baseball-player, and has umpired near
ly every game of amateur ball played hero
In recent years. He also showed what
he was made of in the games he officiated
during the trouble with "Sandy" McDer
mott last season. Although his umpiring
was not entirely satisfactory to John Mc
Closkey and the rest of the Tacoma play
ers, the grandstand and bleachers were
well pleased with his work. If any local
man Is to be given a position on the staff
next season, the Portland fans think that
Rankin should have the place. The fact
that he is a Portland man would not In
fluence his decisions in the least.
AMERICA TO BE REPRESENTED.
Polo Team "Will Take Part in Sports
at the Coronation of the King.
NEW YORK. Dec. 23. It has finally been
decided that the United States will be
represented In England In June, at the se
ries of sports in connection with the cor
onation ceremonies, by a polo team. After
mature deliberation the Invitation of the
Hurlingham Club to the Polo Association
was acted upon and an acceptance will be
sent this week by H. L. Herbert, chair
man of the Polo Association.
The American team will probably be
made up principally of members of the
Lakewood team, which won the champion
ship last seabon. Foxhall Keene, who will
captain the American forces. It Is said,
will be accompanied by Messrs. Lawrence
and V. M. Waterbury, Jr., John E. Cow
din and R. L. Agasslz. The first four
named are members of the Lakewood
team and Mr. Agasslz belongs to the
Myopias, of Hamilton, Mass. Messrs.
Cowdin, Agasslz and Keene have all
played in England, and France.
The proposed team will be the first to go
abroad with the sanction of the Polo As
sociation. Aside from entries being made
for the tournament by the foremost coun
try and cavalry teams in England, there
are expected to be competitors from In
dia. South American and France. Ih ad
dition to taking part In the coronation
tournament, the American team will play
at Ranelagh and attempt to regain pos
session of the challenge cup which was
won at Newport 20 years ago and carried
to England by Sir John Watson's team.
The five men named as prospective
members of the team have between them
about 35 ponies, but it is expected that
George Gould, Clarence Mackay, H. P.
Whitney and A. G. "Vanderbllt will tender
the players the pick of the many line
animals in the stables of each. The
ponies which will be arrayed against them
will be of various breeds, English, Indian,
Arabian and in some cases American. It
is hoped that the American players will
have the fleetest ponies in the tourna
ment. INDIANS COME FOR BLOOD.
Football Game "With Multnomah
Will Be a Hot One.
The Christmas football game between
Chemawa and Multnomah Is arousing
much enthusiasm among football cranks
of the city and great predictions for a
fast- and furious game are being made.
Chemawa's men have set their hearts on
a victory over the wearers of the red and
white, and they will come down tomor
row fully determined to have revenge for
their former defeat. The Indians play
good football, and tomorrow's game will
be no exception to the rule. The Mult
nomah players have settled down to hard
work again, and will go through their final
practice this evening. They are in condi
tion to put up a good game, but the loss
of Sanders will be keenly elt. The line-up
will not be the same as On Thanksgiving
day. as several changes have been -made.
McMillan will appear in his old position
at halfback, with Dolph as his running
mate. Downs will play fullback and Ker
rigan quarter. Keller will hold down his
accustomed position at center, Ross and
Van Voorhls playing the guards. Klrkley
and Pratt will go in as tackles and Monta
gue right end. The other end position lies
between Hamilton, Dowllng and McCul
ley, the exact choice not having been de
termined. During the interim between Christmas
and New Year's, Multnomah will go
through a series of hard practices, so that
the team will be in good shape to take on
Reliance. The line-up of the New Year's
game will probably be the same as on
Thanksgiving day, and the game promises
to be one of- the best ever played in Portland.
MONMOUTH MAY NOT COME.
One of Basket-Ball Team. In Sick, and
That May Settle It.
Physical Director Forbes, of the Mon
mouth Normal School, writes that one of
the players of the girls' basket-ball team
is sick, and unable to play, so that the
team will not come to Portland to play
the Turn Vereln team on December 27.
This Is a great disappointment to the
Portland team, and Professor Krohn is
doing all in his power to have the game
played anyway. One of the Turn "Vereln
players is also unable to play, and a sub
stitute will have to be put In her place.
If the Normal School team can get a
substitute for its player, the game may be
A number of tickets have already been
sold for the contest, and It Is expected
the Monmouth people will find some way
out of the difficulty and send a team

an interview, said:
"I'm getting too heavy for a jockey and
I shall not ride next year. X expect to
train. Instead, for J. De Leon. I've been
In England now 18 months, and I like the
English tracks and the English horses
better than the American. The turf is
certainly better than the hard American
roadbed, and the English horses seem to
have better bone and substance than those
over here. Take such horses as St. Si
mon, for example. The Americans do not
possess such beasts as this one. The Eng
lish horses have the blood and the Eng
lish the money to educate them. The most
popular American Jockey in England to
day, I think, Is t)anny Maher."

able. At all events, I am going to match
Jeffries Immediately. The fight will be

At a meeting of the faculty of the Uni
versity of Washington, held last Friday,
Frank E. Brlghtman, mmager of this
year's football team, was expelled from
the Institution. The reason for this se
vere' action is due to the fact that Bright
man deliberately hired a number of foot
ball men ,to play on the Washington
eleven. The faculty believed that Bright
man's further presence at the University
of Washington would be Injurious both tn
himself and his associates. Previous to
the recent trouble, Brlghtman was well
liked at the university. He Is a member
of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, and
was prominently Identified with a number-
of student enterprises.

PORTLAND'S BANKING STRENGTH.
The statement ls made on the authority of one of the leading bankers of Port
land that Portland's banking power today Is represented by a showing of from
$20,000,000 to 525.000,000. Portland's clearances for 1001 show an Increase, ap
proximately, of $17,000,000 over the total amount of clearances for 1000.
The Oregonl&n In Its forthcoming annual number, that will be published on
January 1 next, will contain a complete resume of Portland's banking strength,
and a statement of the status of each of the rtrong Individual banking houses
now firmly established In this city. One local bank alone today carries deposits
In excess of $ C.500.000. Portland challenges the world to show a city anywhere
of 100,000 population that claims as great financial resources as are commanded
by the representative banking houses here.
When any financial center roaches a point In Its history where It Is able to
command practically unlimited control of money for use in legitimate enterprise,
that place ls In a position where Its future Is assured.
The extent, the richness and the diversity of the resources of all that wide ex
tent of country embraced within tho limits of what is naturally Portland's trad
ing field have long been recognised by the world at large. That Portland has
command today of ample capital to handle the Immense business of developing
these resources is best shown by the low rate of Interest that prevails In this
community. Portland's conservatism has been at once the strength and the
weakness of the local situation. The conservative trend of the community as a
whole ls found In the fact that business has been done on a legitimate and sate
basis, and this In itself has led to the accumulation of the vast wealth In Port
land that ls now available for the work of local development In a wider cense.
Portland ls rapidly emerging from the provincial Into the metropolitan stage,
and the greatest encouragement that the hope of the future growth of the city of
fers ls found in the favorable showing of the strong local banking houses.
old, stabbing and beating them to deatn,
while they were in bed, was found guilty
today and condemned to be decapitated
by the guillotine. Brlere persisted in de
claring himself innocent, but the circum
stantial evidence against him was over
whelming. A pathetic incident of the trial occurred
when Brlere's surviving daughter, wno
the nollep dpelnre onlv "?onripri the fate
of the other children by not responding J
to Brlere's Invitation to go to see hrm,
went on the witness stand, sobblngly pro
testing that her father was Innocent and
begging the court to restore him to her.
Brlere at the time of the murder, as
serted that two tramps entered his house
during his absence and killed the chil
dren. He added that he returned wnlle
the murderers were robbing the place,
and that they attacked him. and, after a
desperate struggle, left him for dead,
with four wounds in the head. He fur
ther alleged that the tramps escaped with
the sum of 1G0O francs and a number of
objects of value. Suspicion soon fell on
Brlere. It was suggested that he mur
dered his children In a fit of drunken
madness, as he spent the evening of the
murders in drinking, and no trace of the
alleged tramps was found. Besides this,
Brlere's wounds were only slight, and
the knife with which they were inflicted
was found to belong to his house. Final
ly, a blood-stained jacket belonging to
Brlere was discovered hidden under some
straw in the courtyard. His arrest fol
lowed. Another theory advanced In con
nection with the murders is that Brlere
wanted to marry a widow, who had re
jected him on account of his large fam
ily, and that he therefore sent for all his
children, some of thtm at that time board
ing with neighbors, and committed tne
murders, after which he Invented the
story of the two tramps, hoping to there
by shield himself from suspicion.
"Wresclien School Scandals.
NEW YORK. Dec. 23. The Radicals in

on the "Wrcschen school scandals." The
Governor and Prefect have been making
efforts to induce the Radicals to abandon
their proposed action, but unsucessfully.
The Austrian Government, says the cor

The whole affair Is embarrassing and an

NEW YORK, Dec. 23. The St. Peters
burg correspondent of the London Times
and the New York Times says all ac
counts agree In representing the State of
Manchuria as being very unsettled. The
presence of the Russian troops has led
to most serious abuses. Private letters
describe shocking outrages perpetrated by
bands of Cossacks on the defenseless in
habitants. A typical case Ls that of six
Mongols, Russian subjects, who were sent
In pursuit of horsethleves. They were at
tacked by Cossacks and because they were
unable to produce passports, five of them
were tortured and then beheaded, in spite
of tlreir prayers and entreaties.

NEW YORK. Dec. 23. The fact that the
Uganda Railway has reached the Victoria

the London Times and the New York
Times, provides the National Zeltung with
food for melancholy reflections. It say3
I Great Britain must again be congratulated
on the completion of a colossal undertak-
lng, of which the political and commer
cial significance can hardly be overesti
mated. This spectacle of British enterprise
and succcra.says the National Zeltung, can
not but arouse a feeling of humiliation on
the part of Germans when considering the
situation In their own East African pos
sessions. The construction of the Ger
man East African Central Railway, pro
posed years ago, ls a matter of vital Im
portance to the future prospects of the
German possessions. It will be well, the
paper says. If Germany realizes the
precious time lost through "the pettiness

NEW YORK, Doc. 23. A dispatch to the
London Times and New York Times from
Kleff says the existence of a dangerous
subversive movement among the Jews

Inflammatory character have been posted.
It is declared that the general condition

"Doctor's" Iiavryer Likens HIai to
Elijah, Opposition to a Devil Fish.
CHICAGO, Dec 23. The closing argu
ment in the suit against "Doctor" John
Alexander Dowie, for the appointment of
a receiver for his Zlon lace Industries.
was begun by Attorney S. W. Packard
today in Judge Tuley's court. Mr. Pack
ard denounced the action of Samuel
Stevenson. Dowle's brother-in-law. In
having brought the suit, and expressed
the hope that his better spirit would
move him to reconciliation with Zlon. A
strong plea was made to show that
Dowle was not Infallible. Attorney Pack
ard likened Dowle to J. P. Morgan as a
great organizer, but said he doubtless
made mistakes. "He does what I cla'm
to be more than human," he said, "for
In the Bible St. James says Elijah was
a man of like passions with ourselves."
Mr. Packard, In upholding Dowle's
claims as Elijah, said he would prefer
him at his bedside if he were at the
point of death rather than any skilled
physician. Mr. Packard Is not a member
of the Zlon congregation.
"Dr." Dowle and his wife were present
In court, with by far the largest number
of followers that has yet filled the court.
During Attorney Packard's, recital of
Dowle's Identity with "Elijah the Re
storer," Dowle frequently rolled his eyes
