VISITORS WIN OUT
Vancouver Club Carries Off
fiiGBY TOO MUCH FOR PORTLAND
fine Bowling of Professional Player
and Superior Batting Contrib
ute to a Decisive Victory
. Tlie Scores
By superior batting, and aided by the
fine bowling of their professional, Rigby,
who took 11 wickets at an expense of
only 58 runs, the Vancouver (B. C.) Crick
et Club won an easy victory yesterday
over the Portlands, at the Multnomah
Club grounds, by defeating them by nine
wickets and two runs to spare. Rlgby
was a puzzle to nearly all the Portlands,
with his rapid overhand delivery breaking
at will now to the off and then the on.
The balls are not full-pitched, and they
have a trick of shooting Into the wickets
before the batsman Is aware of the fact.
Rlgby is easily one of the best bowlers
who has visited this city. Ho comes
from Barrow-in-Furness, Lancashire, .
England, and Is the professional Instruct
or of the Vancouvers. He is pleasant to
meet,- and plays as a true sportsman
should, but it is a question If the Van
couvers should be permitted to play a
professional against an eleven like the
Portlands, composed of amateurs. Prob
ably some sort of a protest against play
ing Rlgby will be lodged with the Van
couvers today. The Portlands have their
good luck to thank that Rlgby was
caught out by Lumgalr when he had only
scored 2. It was a chance shot, and it
was a wonder he did not make 50, or even
a century before he was disposed of.
Portland Score 07 Runs.
Portland began batting and sent Lum
gair and Lawrence to the wickets'. Rlgby
sent In a shooter to Lawrence, which ho
blocked, but two cuts to slip followed,
and the fourth ball was hit for two.
Then came a four, and a careful block.
Jukes faced Lumgalr, and the third ball
was smashed for three. Rlgby sent two
deceptive shooters to Lumgalr, and then
sent a ball which the batsman tried to
sky, but it fell short into Senkler's hands.
It was a hot catch. On wicket for elev
en. Barfoot came next, but he fell to .a
shooter from Jukes. Cawston joined
Lawrence, and at first the partnership
looked promising. In the sixth over,
Lawrence sent a beautiful cut for three,
which Just went over the heads of two
fielders, but It was safe. He blocked
three balls, but the fourth one shot along
the ground, struck the matting, and
looked as if it were to rise, but It broke
through Lawrence's guard, and the wick
et fell. Things looked blue at this point
for the Portlands, with three of their
best bats down for 21 runs. Fenwlck
made a single, and he returned a hot
"liner" to Jukes, who held It. Cawston
fell at 13 to Jukes, with two fours, two
doubles, and a single to his credit None
of the remaining batsmen succeeded In
getting Into double figures, but It looked
at one time as If Smith was going to
get there. He played cautiously and
blocked Rigby's shooters, but after a fine
drive for four, he tried to help Willie
make a run, and was run out instead.
The tall-enders, Gilman and Crocker,
made a sturdy defense, and both batsmen
had fours. Then Jukes bowled Gilman,
and the Portlands were out for C7 runs.
Just as 1 o'clock was recorded. The field
ing of the Vancouvers was good and
steady, but they were not kept hard at
wcrk. There were only two catches.
Vancouver at' the Bat.
After lunch, the Vancouvers went to
defend the wickets, sending In Morley
and Deane. Lawrence opened the bowl
ing, and the fir?t ball he gave Deane the
latter cut for two to the grandstand.
But the other five were nearly unplay
able, except to block. Barfoot faced
Morley, and the latter cut him for a sin
gle by a pretty drive. For four Innings
both Morley and Deane played the bowl
ing easily, but in the second ball of the
fifth Lawrence scattered Deane's wick
ets. Robsoncame on and he began" to hit
confidently. Lumgalr replaced Barfoot
at- the south end, and only allowed one
run in his first over. Smith, Lawrence
and Fenwlck were kept busy stopping
drives, but in the seventeenth over, Lum
galr sent a tempting one to Morley, who
cut it to slip where Gilman lay handy.
It was a pretty catch. Rlgby came next,
and great things were expected of him
from his record as a bowler. He ulti
mately faced Lawrence and cut one ball
sharply for four. "Now for some crick
et." murmured the knowing ones, but the
' very next ball Rlgby received he cut to
point, where It was smartly held by Lum
galr. The catch was one of the prettiest
plays of the game. Rev. Mr. Clinton got
a drive for two oft LawrenceT tout the
nexj ball crashed from his pad to bat
and wicket. Lumgalr disposed of Robson
by another catch at point.
Then came Senkler the hitter of the day.
He displayed no partiality to any of the
bowlers, for he drove everything tney
gave him. South managed to stay with
' him for a bit, although South narrowly
escaped being caught when he drove a hot
one to the edge of the grandstand. Senk
ler seemed to have a liking for twos,
and Barfleld replaced Lumgalr, but the
hitting went on. But Lawrence bo.wled
South, and as Senkler could not find any
cne to stay with him, he stuck out to the
" end, for 40 not out. He had two ones,
nine twos, and five fours. The score
Portland's Second Innings.
At 4 o'clock the Portlands began their
second Innings, but with the exception
of Smith. Dakyns, Lawrence and Gilman
they made an unfortunate showing. The
third ball Rlgby sent scattered Lumgalr's
wickets. Rival bowler.. Lawrence Joined
Smith, and they played carefully, but
Lawrence could get nothing but singles,
when he was bowled by Rlgby. Rival
bowlers agpin. No stand was made until
Dakyns came on, and he played well for
his 15 three fours, a double and -a single.
Smith was the batsman of his side with
his 23 three singles, two doubles and four
fours. He was declared "leg before
wicket," by Jukes. Gilman, for an end
man, played well, and seemed at home
with the bowling. He blocked, and hit
the good ones. But all the same the Port
lands could not make any more than 57.
Vancouver Wins Out.
"With only 25 runs to make to win a vie
tcry, the Vancouvers started at 5:25 o'clock
by sending In Morley and Deane. Law
rence and Fenwlck were bowlers. The
first ball Fenwlck gave Morley the latter
cut for two, but the next one scattered
his wickets. Robson Joined Deane, and
they hit out confidently, so much so that
the fielding of their opponents suffered at
this point. In 19 minutes there were 12
txtras, one six being helped by an over
throw. When the Vancouvers had 2C they
paused. They were two runs , ahead, with
nine wickets to fall.
This morning at 11 o'clock the All-Oregon
team faces the Vancouvers.

'AMERICA WHO TEACHES ;PARIS
SOCIETY THE ART. '
The "Boston" a Favorite A Waits ot
Which the Parisians Cannot
Get Too Much.
. Parisian society Is taught to dance by
an American. Its dance programmes are
made up of "Boston," hop-waltzes, waltz
lancers, two-steps, three-steps, one-steps,
Newports, five-step schottisches and
Washington, The American step, the
American taste and the American Idea
are firmly fixed In the Parisian great
world, and one young American Is respon
sible for It, says the Paris correspondent
of the Washington Star.
Between classes at .his establishment in
the- Rue Washington, as swell young
."buds," escorted by their governesses,
drove up and away In private cabs, I have
Just had a talk with George Washington
Lopp, this young apostle of the "Boston"
to' the Parisians. So'me seven or eight
years ago the late Henri Plucquc, then
reglsseur of the grand opera ballet, wrote
to his confrere of the Metropolitan Opera
House In New York to ask if he could
recommend some one to teach his cory
phees step dances, in view of the forth
coming ballet of "Ip. Korrlgane," whose
"danse aux sabots," or "wooden-shoe
dance." lasts some 20 minutes. Mr. Lopp
was sent, and stayed a year, In which
time he taught the fair creatures clogs,
jigs, hornpipes and sand dances In va
riety. 'They need It," says Mr. Lopp to
day. The young American, however, was not
satisfied to spread abroad the knowledge
of step dancing. Almost unknown, ex
cept to professionals, he got together
here and there a class of young Americans
belonging to the colony. There must
have been a long-felt want for a good
master of the dances of American society,
because classes grew as If by magic, un
til the Americans were left In a minority
and Parisian society had claimed him for
"How different they are here from what
they are In London!" exclaimed Mr. Lopp,
as we talked about the coronation. "They
are really Innocent Jn London, and Ameri
cans bound for the coronation festivities
need have no fear to show themselves on
any London dance floor. On the cobtrary,
let them remember only one thing never
to turn to the left in waltzing. That is
the one rule In England. Any. other old
thing will do, for they are away behind
"In London." Mr. Lopp went on, as he
warmed to the subject, "they dance what
they call the 'Washington Post' to tho
music of that name by Sousa. In it the
man dances behind his partner, extending
both fcands; while for the rest. It la
danced very' much like 'La Favorite,' a
dance In the nature of a galop, written
by an American teacher of the name of
Gilbert. Throw the heel to the side; then,
crossing the leg. touch the toe In front;
this they repeat, then slide four step?,
men to 'the right, girls to tho left. In
changing places. The whole movement Is
then repeated, after which they take eight
galop steps forward to the right and eight
to the left, and repeat ad libitum. Waltzes
they dance always to the right, never re
versing, and It Is something terrible! When
they get dizzy they start at one end of
the room and go forward until they feel
able to go on turning to the right again.
They are beginning to dance the two
step but only to the right. They dance
quadrilles, which are romps, mere romps
"What they need in London Is a good
American- dancmg master," I suggested.
A Pressing Need.
"One?" said Mr. Lopp. "They need a
"I thoughtthat you -were once sent for
to teach the royal children?" I asked,
remembering the rumor I had heard long
ago from some of his earliest American
"That was at the beginning of my ca
reer In Paris." he replied. "1 had left the
opera and established my first society
cloisses. In this same apartment-house,
whoa number Is on the avenue of the
Champs Elysees, not the Rue Washington.
(And, by the way, do you know lhat San-tos-Dumont
Is my neighbor, in the next
apartment?) At that time Lady de Grey
wa9 also a neighbor of mine, and she had
a lot of young friends coming to take
lessons of me. It was through her that 1
got the 'order' to go to London, to . teach
the children of the Duke of York and
their young companions.
"The lessons took place at the old Buck
ingham Palace In a kind of salon-room on
the second floor, come distance back; I
know I had to go through half a dozen
corridors to reach It. Very shortly I had
four or five other classes about 40 chil
dren of the aristocracy held regularly at
the hemes of this or that one of them.
Here, again, they would never allow me
to teach the children to reverse In waltz
ing.. Often I asked why; but I never got
a real answer except that 'It Is bad form.'
In truth, it is only British stubbornness.
"Well, after I had been giving lcesons to
the little royalties about five weeks I bad
a row; yes, in Buckingham Palace! There
was a young fellow of the name of (I
think) Argyle, who used to come to look
on. He, too, was great on not reversing
and against all things Amerlcnn, Includ
ing the American accent. He claimed
that I had it, and I would not argue with
him. Then he began to mock me. When
I would say 'dance e would say
'dawnce,' and when I said 'can't he
would say 'cawn't.' After a little of this
I turned to the pianist and asked: "Is
there a parrot In the room?' The young
Argyje went off muttering about 'a beast
ly brute.' And a word about It was
brought to me the next day. I had had al
most enough of the thing already, ao my
answer was to take the first boat for
Did Xot Like the Court.
"In a few days Lord -Duffc-rin, the then
Ambassador, came and said to mo: 'You

Court quadrille, one or two plain lancers
and waltz-lancers, and (were young people
predominating), a minuet, a gavotte and
perhaps a pavane-three old dances that
are very popular again. And then, to fill
up, later there would be a quantity of
Bostons. At many young people's dances
they dance only Bostons, while the older
ones go In for the old waltzes."
A "Boston" Described.
"And now, what Is this Eos ton?" I asked
"One hears about it everywhere, and the
new Larousse dictionary gives the verb
'to boston,' 'bostonner.' "
"The Boston as danced in Parisian so

Dip danced sometimes in America. Yeara
ago, when qulto a young fellow, I ran off
and Joined a minstrel company. At San
Diego, where I left the company, I opened
a dancing class, and It, was there I wrote
the Boston as It Is now dapced In Paris.
The original idea I had received from a
friend of mine, a dancing master of Bos
ton, Russ Walker. He had written the
'Boston Dip,' which attained popularity In
certain circles, not the best. They took a
long dip during two measures In which
the dancers almost touched the floor, then
waltzed and, repeated the 'dip' ad libitum.
I saw It had considerable possibilities; but
It would have to be materially changed to
fit It for a dance of society. First I made
the step much longer. Then, Instead of
having them dance it round, I made them
dance it forward and back."
"In those early days you hardly realized,
I suppose, that you were evolving a quite
now type of dance?"
"No. And It is a new type of dance.
The Boston as we now dance It in Paris
may be described as a waltz that Is
danced forward and backward. In turning

Boston, that It acts like a touchstone ot
refinement. Those who exaggerate It be

danced properly, it Is a movement as nat
ural, as unfatlgulng and as Innocent ai

waltz in this way: While the waltz would
make a pattern ot backward and forward

GEORGE IITS CANNON.
Used as Tools by n Pittsburg Bridge
From deadly implements of war turned
by the enemy against the sons of the
land In which they have for more than a
century reposed to instruments useful in
the furtherance of peaceful pursuits In
that same country is the remarkable
transition through which two large can

Bridge Company have passed. Captured,
It la supposed by General Gates at the
battle of Saratoga, one of the most Im
portant engagements of the Revolution,
the cannon were placed In the Pittsburg
arsenal early in the last century, and
remained there as souvenirs until 1S73,
when they were bought by the old Shlf-
fler Bridge Company, and placed In the
mill to be used as compressors. There
for almost 29 years the old guns have
done service, and no better tools of their
kind could be found.
In a . dark corner of the dingy plant,
hidden from sight the greater part of the
time by the great weights surrounding
them, and smeared with grease and
grime, the old cannon still retain their
usefulness, and beneath all the grease
the royal coat of arms of the proud King
George III stand out, the sole reminders
of the days In which they boomed In the
service of the King. The royal crest Is

the heads of both the cannon were re

ends. Through the great 16-lnch bore
water Is pumped and Is forced out by
long cylinders that are burdened by GOOO
pounds of steel. This tremendous weight

Is thrown through the pipes against a
machine known as an "upsetter." At the
other end of this machine the "T" bars

machine against the end of the bar and

"The Rose Among Roots" Finds Its
The onion Is one of those strenuous
vegetables about which one cannotbe in
different. One either yearns for it with
a passionate longing or else utterly re
pudiates It and everybody who has any
trafficking with It. If one never had to
take one's onions at second hand it would
not be so bad. If the law would only set
apart one day a week for the consump
tion of onions and forbid It under penalty
of fine and Imprisonment preferably Im
prisonment at all time. It would be a
boon to the world. The onion hater would
at least know when to take to the woods
and how long to stay there.
As for banishing the onion from the
kitchen, that would be a crime. There
have been poets who have sung its prais
es, but perhaps some of the prose rhap
sodies are Just as eloquent. For instance.
If you want to crush your neighbor who
regards your dish of onions with a super
cilious eye. just ask him If he knows
that the onion Is called "the rose among
roots." Ask him If he knows that "with
out It there would be no gastronomic
art"; that "Its presence lends color and
enchantment to the meet modest dish.
Its absence reduces the rarest dainty to
hopeless Insipidity, and the diner to de
spair." It Is quite possible that your
haughty neighbor may decline to follow
this hint and may show signs of being
plunged Into despair pending the addi
tion of onions to his own menu. The
antl-onlonlst is a stiff-necked party.
