BLANCHE WALSH INJURED
STEPS FROM A SIDEWALK AXD
FALLS TWENTY FEET.
Accident Occur While Walking
From the Stage Door of the What
com Theater to Her Carriage.
SPOKANE-, Wash., April 9. Blanche
Walsh, the noted actress now playing a
series of engagements In the Pacific North
west, met with a serious accident night
before last at New Whatcom, Wash.
While walking from the stage door of
the theater to her carriage, she stepped
from the sidewalk and fell a distance of
20 feet. She has canceled her dates at
Everett arid North Yakima, and is now
under the doctor's care at the Spokane
Hotel in this city. Assurance Is given
out that she will be able to play her en
gagement here, beginning tomorrow even
ing. The injuries received by Miss Walsh
consist of a badly bruised leg and shoul
der. It Its considered little less than
marvelous that she escaped with no
broken bones, and indeed with her life.
The sawdust which Is packed around the
piles between which she fell Is thought to
be accountable for her present good con
oltlon. Mr. Robert Lowe, a member of the com
pany, and formerly a physician, came on
with the actress to this city, and he, in
company with local physicians, is attend
ing to her Injuries.

Peach Trees Injured.
THE DALLES, Or., April 9. Owing to
the hard freeze in January and again In

feared has been done. Peach trees whose
buds were regarded as dead are com
mencing to blossom, the frost having
only thinned the buds rather than de
stroyed the crop. Unless some further
damage occurs, the yield will be aver

GOSSIP OF THE DEMOCRATS.
What They Have to Say and "Who
Are the Candidates.
Frank W. Durbln, the Democratic
Sheriff of Marlon County, and dele
gate to the state convention, wants
it distinctly understood that he Is not
a candldateX for the nomination for
State Treasurer, nor for any other office.
He says his Democratic friends, assisted
by some 300 of his Republican friends,
have twice elected him Sheriff of Marlon
County, and he feels that he ought not
permit his name to he used. In connection
with any other office at- this time. He
savs he is going out of office in July, and
will not ask a continuance of political
favors, which have been very gratefully
received In the past. Possibly Mr. Dur
bln's conclusion has been influenced by
doubts as to his chances of election.
Judge T. L. Davidson, of Marion County,
was talked of as a possible candidate for
State Treasurer, but the Illness of his
wife necessitated his going to California,
and his friends thought best not to ask
for his nomination.
Determined to find fault with everything
that comes from Republican hands, the
Democrats yesterday expressed their dis
approval of the clear, cold, sparkling
water that is supplied by a Republican
water commission from tho ley springs of
Rull Run. They didn't say anything that
might cause offense to their Republican
brethren, but at every opportunity they
expressed silent contempt' by drinking
something else. It is rumored that tho
platform may contain a plank advocating
subsidies for the growers of rye.
Lark Bllyeu, of Eugene, a delegate from
Lane County, was around the hotel cor
ridors all day yesterday. He Is an attor

as a possible Democratic nominee for
Attorney-General. He Is a member of the
great Bilyeu family, which kept the census-taker
busy up In the forks of the San
tiam, in Linn County. Half the people
of Linn County can trace some relation
ship by blood or bymarrlage to the Bllyeu
family. Both the Republicans and Demo
crats in Linn County always make it a
point to put up a ticket that will not dis
please any considerable number of the
J. J. Whitney, of Albany, was one of the
first of the Linn County delegation to
arrive upon the scene of the Democratic
love feast. Judge Whitney was one of
the prominent Democratic members of the
last Legislature. He always goes to the
state convention of his party, and usually
as a delegate. In all the many years that
he has lived in Linn County he has never
been a delegate to the county convention.
He says he always lets the other boys
settle the questions that arise within the
party, and then he gets out and supports
the ticket they put up. He has served
one term as County Judge, two terms as
Prosecuting Attorney, and has served
three times in the Legislature. He is not
a candidate for any office, nor Is he any

Senator William Smith, of Baker County,
arrived in Portland early in the day yes
terday and was warmly greeted by those
who were upon the ground before him. He
will be renominated In the Senatorial dis
trict composed of Baker, Malheur and
Harney Counties, and will have J. L. Rand
for an opponent. In the State Senate
Smith was always a stickler for preclse
ness in the use of language in proposed
laws. So far as possible he gave every
bill ciose scrutiny, to see that Its word
ing expressed its meaning, and In this way
he securedthe correction of many errors
that might afterwards have caused trou
ble. If the platform-builders today aro not
careful to fay just what they mean, and
say It In language that everybody will
understand, It may be expected that there
will be a suggestion from Smith of Baker.

and Fry are old-time members of the

convention, but are on the ground to
watch the proceedings. Incidentally, they
are working for the nomination of John
A. Jeffrey for Joint Senator between Ma

Democrat who has stood up for" his party's

George E. Chamberlain returned from
Salem yesterday morning, and was around
the hotel corridors for a short time last
evening. He did not attend the Demo
cratic caucus, evidently feeling confident
that his interests were safe in a crowd of
men who are all agreed upon giving him
a nomination. He presented the glad hand
to many delegates and talked everything
Among the youngest -delegates is Charles
V. Galloway, of Yamhill County. He is a
son of Hon. William Galloway, himself a
life-long Democrat. Young Galloway is a
prunegrower, and takes an active interest
in public affairs. He was Indorsed by the
Tillamook county convention for Joint
Representative from Tillamook and Yam
hill Counties. When seen last evening,
Mr. Galloway declined to discuss his can
didacy. The name of Henry Blackman, of Hepp
ner, formerly Collector of Internal Reve
nue for the district of Oregon, has been,
suggested as a candidate for the position
of State Treasurer.
Friends of State Senator J. W. Morrow,
of Heppner, have urged him to accept the
nomination for Congress against Hon. J.
N. Williamson. Mr. Morrow says that he
does not care to accept the nomination,
as business affairs will not permit his
making such a campaign as should be
made. His name has also been suggested
for the nomination for Secretary of State.

MAX MULLER ARRIVES
CLEVER BALLPLAYER TO BEGIN
PRACTICE WITH PORTLAND.
Number of Other Players Also Came
In Who Are Headed for Oher
Cities of the Leagae.
"Home Run" Max Muller, the crack
left-fielder of the Portland baseball team,
arrived from San Francisco yesterday
morning, and is ready to assist In the
winning of new laurels for Portland. Mul
ler spent the entire Winter in California,
and appears to be in fine trim. In com
pany with Muller were a number of other
players, who were headed for other cities
of the Northwest League. The party
spent the forenoon In the city, leaving on
the 2 P. M. train over the Northern Pa

inson, Tacoma's first-baseman.
The eight members of the Portland team
who are now In the city enjoyed a good
practice at the.Y. M. C. A. gymnasium

Three handsome ellver cigar cases are
displayed In tho window of the sporting

Company which aro offered as handicap
prizes by the Multnomah Rod and Gun
'Club, to be shot for at their weekly shoots
at Irvlngton grounds. The competition is
open to all comers ag well as to members
of the club. The terms are that each com
pstltor shall be allowed 25 shots each
wesk, and thooe making the highest score
at the end of the season will receive the
cases as first, second and third prizes. As
the cases are toth beautiful and valuable,
there will doubtless be many sportsmen
entering the contest, and the members
of the club will have to look to their
laurels Or outsiders may carry them off.
Portland Academy Baseball.
The students of the Portland Academy
have organized a baseball team for the
coming season, with Harry Lltt as cap
tain and L. A. McArthur as manager.
Practice has already commenced, and
about 25 candidates arr turning out each
afternoon for regular practice. A practice
game has been arranged with the Van
couver High School, to be played in Van
couver next Saturday. Baseball enthu
siasm , is running high at the academy,
and $150 has already been raised to equip
the team and pay the other necessary ex
penses. Professor H. H. Hcrdman, Jr.,
will act as coach throughout the season.
A large schedule of games will be ar
ranged. Entries for Dog Show.
Entries for the dog ehow are coming in
rapidly, and It is quite likely that there'
will be from 450 to 500 on exhibition when
the doors open next Wednesday. Dog

Health will come with all its blessings to those who know the way, and it is mainly a ques
tion of right-living, with all the term implies, hut the efforts which strengthen the system,
the games which refresh and the foods which nourish are important, each in a way, while it is
also advantageous to have knowledge of the best methods of promoting freedom from unsani
tary conditions. To assist nature, when nature needs assistance, it is all important that the
medicinal agents used should bo of tho best quality and of known value, and the one remedy
which acts most beneficially and pleasantly, as a laxative, is Syrup of Figs manufactured by
the California Fig Syrup Co.
"With a proper understanding of the fact that many physical ills are of a transient char
acter and yield promptly to the gentle action of Syrup of Figs, gladness and comfort come to
the heart, and if one would remove the torpor and strain and congestion attendant upon a con
stipated condition of the system, take Syrup of Figs and enjoy freedom from the aches and
pains, the colds and headaches and the depression due to inactivity of the bowels. In case of
my organic trouble it is well to consult a competent physician, but when a laxative is required
remember that the most permanently gratifying results will follow personal cooperation with
tho beneficial effects of Syrup of Figs. It is for sale by all reliable druggists. Price fifty
cents per bottle.
The excellence of Syrup of Figs comes from the beneficial effects of the plants used in the
combination and also from tho method of manufacture which ensures that perfect purity and
uniformity of product essential in a perfect family laxative. All the members of the family
from the youngest to tho most advanced in years may use it whenever a laxative is needed and
share alike in its beneficial effects. We do not claim that Syrup of Figs is the only remedy of
known, value, but it possesses this great advantage over all other laxatives that it acts gently
and pleasantly without disturbing natural functions, in any way, as it is free from every ob
jectionable quality or substance. To get its beneficial effects it is always necessary to buy the
genuine and the full nnme of the Co. California Fig Syrup Co. is printed on the front of every
iested, and it i3 evident that the attend
ance will be larger than usual.
