Tacoma Started Ont Strong.
Tacoma started out strong and at the
end of the first two innings had a pair
of deuces on the score board to their
credit These were made oft five hits,
including two doubles, .an error by Deisel,
"which opened the game, and a pass. In

The big event came off in the last part
of the sixth. Max Muller started out by
putting the ball In centor field for a
,safe hit. Letcher handled it In poor form
and Muller traveled around to third.

Record-broaklns, or so-called record

athletic circles throughout the Pacific
Northwest. Every time an athlete makes
fast time or good distanco in field meets
of any kind, his admirers go wild and the
newspapers of his locality tell In start

which a new Northwest record has been
allowed. Particularly is this true at the
University of Washington, whore records
are handed out with: a rapidity that Is, In
deed, astonishing. The University of

Bears are becoming numerous of late In
the country back of Vancouver, and, hav
ing a tendency to prey on the calves and
pigs of the farmers, are not welcome vis

from tho region about Mount Adams, fol
lowing a range of hills. They have prob
ably heard, that the Maza,mas Intend
storming Mount Adams this Summer, and
have concluded that they would emigrate
for a season.
A short time ago a big bear walked
into tho farmyard at a farm a few miles
back of 'Vancouver, took a vlg weighing
150 pounds In his arms and toddled off
toward the brush with it. The squeals ef
the frightened porker aroused the farmer,
who set his two dogs on the bear, which,
however, paid no attention to them, but
occasionally took a bito out of the pig,
as a boy might out of an apple.
Tho farmer summoned his neighbors,
and they gave chase to the bear, and as
he could not travel very fast with a pig
in his arms, they 6O0n overtook him.

Great Interest la Tnltcn by Experi

The weather of Saturday, which caused
the postponement of the meet of tho Port
land Hunt Club, made the racing men of
the city feel as if they had taken the
wrong end of a 20-to-l shot. It was not
that they expected that any records would
be. broken, or any bets would be made
excepting that Lazarus could not clear
all the barricades without kicking a fern
but they wanted to see some clear ama
teur heats, and they were sorely disap
pointed when the meet was declared off
for one week. The Interest taken in the
meet, by the way, shows that the owners
and managers of the big racing stables J
recognize the fact that amateur racing:
contains instruction a3 well as sport. Of
course. It Is not likely that there will be
any Tod Sloans, on the runners, but, as a
horsemen said yesterday, it is possible, for
winners of fast mile heats to pick up a
few points from the work of men who
drive for pleasure only on the road and
t for a cup on the track; also that amateur
racing never lacks excitement, and no
meet is without Its sport. If hi3 opinion
Is that of all horsemen, there Is plenty
of sport in store for Portland. The Hunt
Club will haye lis meet on the 7th, and
the Riverside Driving- Club on the 14th.
As there Is considerable rivalry between
the owners of 'fiorses entered for both
meets, spirited contests may be expected.

COLLEGES FAIL TO AGREE.
Pacific University and Pacific Col
lege Fall Ont Over Diacns Throw.
&EWBERG. June 1. The track athletes
of Pacific College are considerably dis
gruntled over the treatment received at
the hands of Pacific University In Forest
Grdvc, on May 24. A dual field meet had
heed arranged between the two Institu
tions, and the local team Journeyed to
Forest Grove td participate in the sport.
Upon going- on the field Captain Henter
was informed that Pacific University
wished to add the discus throw to the or
der of events. The Ncwberg bo5'3 object
ed to this, as they had never practiced
with the dl3cus, and they believed that
adding such an event would give Forest
Grove on unfair advantage. Captain
Heater steadily refused to allow the discus
throw to be included, and Manager Gib
son, of Forest Grove, declared that
his team would not participate In
the meet, unless the disputed evnt
be Included. No agreement was
reached, ea the meet was called off. Tho
Newberg boys, say they never dreamed of
having a discus throw until they arrived
in Forest Grove, where they were treated
In a most unsportsmanlike manner.
- North Yakima Won, 7 to 0.
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash., June 1.
Owing to a decision of the -umpire, tho
"Hopplckers" won today's ball game from
the Daytons by a score of 7 to 6. It was
not until the seventh Inning that Dayton
got a hit off Jewett, while four hits, In
cluding two doubles and a triple, had
been lined out by the Yakimas. the score
being 7 to 1 In favor of the homo team.
In the ninth, three hits, one of which
was a triple, were made by tho visitors.
These, with the help of errors, netted
four rms. A dispute arose as to whether
a base-runner left his base before a fly
was dropped, but the umpire called the
Dayton runner out at the plate. Tho
tally would havo tied the score.

WILL THE SLU3IS CONTROL.? 4
Tho inhabitants of dens of xice always
vote in solid phalanxes. It Is thus they
maintain pulltlcal Influence sufficient to
prevent a prosecuting attorney from do
ing his duty. Will the respectable peo
ple show an equal degree of Interest In
tho election today? Will they ote to
Indorse tho unpunished assault upon
Faith Stewart, or will they mingle their
ballots with those of the denlsens of the
North End? Honest men will get their
dues when thieves fall out, or when
honest men stand together. Is it not
better that the political influence of tho
respectable people should be a power
than that the candidates who bow to
the lawless should always be victors?

As to City Engineer.
PORTLAND. June 1. (To the Editor.)
It is interesting to the property-owners
who were obliged to pay for some of tha
worthless but expensive street improve
ments and badly plarmed sewers, con
structed under the supervision of the
fusion candidate for City Engineer when
he was Superintendent of Streets, r to bo
told of his "fitness for the office." Tho
first Improvement of Third street and
Washington street with bituminous pav
ing are notable cases.
Tho Holladay-avenue sewer system is
another Instance. Many thousand feet of
sewers outside of tho district and un
taxed have had to be run into this main
because Nature will not admit of it being
run anywhere else. "Skill and experi
ence" were factors In "these engineering
problems" of the city whjch were demon
strated to be lacking at 'that time.
Such old stock phrases aa "life and
strength of materials," 'stresstrs and
strains of bridge timbers." "resistances
of pipes," "forces of water." etc., dug out
of some engineering work for the occasion,
ara intended to mislead.
