nle of LeagHe Series.
Contrary to expectations, the baseball
season in Portland "will not begin until
May 13, when Portland and Helena will
cross bats. The Portland men will begin
the season's work at Tacoma on April 29,
ard will play in Spokane the following
week. The Portland cranks are some
what dlsappointetd over the turn of af
fairs, but the fact that Helena will ap
pear In the opening series in this city
will somewhat appease their feelings, for
the local baseball followers are anxious
to see the Montana boys play ball.
"Vigneux has received propositions from
prominent players In all parts of the coun
try, and will soon have a full complement
o fmen. Although he has signed but two
players Mahaffey and Hupp he has sev
eral others on his string, and expects to
conclude negotiations with some of them
in a few days. Nearly all of the best
players of last season's nine will return,
and Vigneux believes that he will put
out a winning team.
At the Spokane meeting the following
directors were chosen for the coming year:
D. E. Dugdale, of Seattle; C. H. Lane, of
Butte; L. A. Walker, of Helena; C. A,
Wliltemore, of Pprtland; H. G. Brown, of

point as to umpires. No men have yet
been signed to preside over the diamonds.
It is reported that last year's umpires.
O'Connell and McDonald, have signed
with the California League, and Presi
dent Lucas will not act in making ap
pointments until he hears from them. The
appointment of Ed Rankin, of Portland,
and Ralph Dodd, of Spokane, as substi
tute umpires was made in recognition of
the demands of the cranks in the two
:ltles for their appointment, and also as
-ecognition of their services to baseball

tonight knocked out George Green, of San
Francisco, in the seventh round of what
was scheduled as a 10-round contest be
fore a large audience in Armory Hall.
From the first round, in which Green
was forced to take the count, until the
decisive blow was landed, the result was
never in doubt. Ryan was the aggressor
throughout, and Green was at no time
able to withstand the furious rushes of
In the flrst round, after knocking Green
over the ropes with a hard right in the
ribs, Ryan landed again with his left
on Green's Jaw, with such telling effect
that the latter was forced to take the
count. In the second round Ryan rained

for five seconds. Green made his best
showing in the third round, when he
landed a half dozen times, but without ap
parent effect on Ryan. In the beginning
of the fourth round Ryan landed a clean
right on the Jaw, which knocked Green
down. After this Green was in great dis
tress, and ran around the ring to avoid
his opponent. Ryan was waiting now
only to land a knock-out punch, and after
one minute and 20 seconds In the seventh
round he landed another right on the
Jaw, and Green went flat on his back.
Green was counted out, and had to be
carried to his dressing-room, and was
revived with some difficulty.

NEW YORK, Jan. 30. Gossip among
yachtsmen is to the effect that Sir Thom
as Llpton's Shamrock II will participate
in the special cup races during the com
ing season in American waters. Sir Thom
as' wishes in the direction of sailing his

of the members of the Constitution syn

In the event of Constitution and Sham
rock being put In commission, the Larch

corruption made by Sir John Blundell
Maple, Conservative, against the British
officers who purchased army horses in

unjustifiable attacks on the Integrity of

to abolish flogging, and rigidly to control
the liquor traffic among the blacks. He
admits this latter to be a tremendous un

"While I realize the difficulties, I also

igin on ForelRH-Made Goods.
BERLIN, Jan. 30. The government was
defeated today In the tariff committee
of the Reichstag by 15 votes to 10 on
the amendment of Herr Gamp, Conserva
tive, requiring the production of certifi
cates of origin on all goods subject to
duties differing in amount, according to
the country where they are manufactured.
Falling the production of certificates of
origin, the highest duty shall be Im
posed, except in cases where no doubt
exists that the goods were made in a
country entitled to lower rates, In which
case certificates may be dispensed with.
The committee voted on this amend
ment Immediately after Count Posadow-sky-Wehner,
the Imperial Secretary ot
State for the Interior, speaking for the
government, said: "The federated gov
ernments cannot accept any proposition
making certificates of origin an ordinary
requirement. I regret .that the committee
is devoting so much time to discussing
amendments that cannot become law."
The committee adopted the first section
of paragraph S, which is cs follows:
"Dutiable goods from any country treat
ing German ships and German goods less
favorably than it treats those of other
states may be subjected, besides the reg
ular duty, to double rates, or the full
value of the goods. Goods not subject
to duty can be taxed half their value."
Count von Schwerln-Ioewitz, Conserva
tive, offered an amendment empowering
the government to treat the goods Im

same duties and customs regulations that
the same countries apply to Germany, in
so far as the treaties would permit of
