SAN FRANCISCO, Sept 6. (Special.)
Jt was a large-sized tank of whitewash In
fwhich Oscar Graham soused the Portland
baseball tjutflt at Recreation Park this
afternoon, and more than 8000 spectators
looked on. Superior and heavy stick work
Is what brought in nine runs for Oakland
and netted a total of 12 base hits, five of
them doubles, for the cripples, but it was
Oscar Graham's mighty south paw that
allowed but two safeties and prevented
tallies being scored on the Portland sheet.
Lohman's .boys started things in the
third inning, when they beat in three runs
and touched up McFarlan for four safe
ties. Graham beat out the ball he dropped
In front of the plate, O'Hara hit one
through McFarlan, advancing Graham and
and putting himself safely at first corner.
IBuck Francks cracked out a hit to right,
driving home Graham and putting O'Hara
safely on third. Francks pilfered the sec
ond sack, but Moskiman went out on an
Snfleld fly. Charlie Schwartz swatted the
leather for two bases, which was respon
sible for the home-coming of O'Hara and
Francks. Murdock fouled out, Messerly
"walked, and was forced out at second a
jnoment later on Gorton's infield hit. Oak
land was thus three runs to the good, and
jo remained until the fifth period, when
mother tally was added. Schwartz again
plugged out a two-bagger and scored on
Clurdock's single. But the ninth and last
time the cripples were permitted to slug
the luckless McFarlan was the spectacu
lar part of the show.
The least said about the morning game
fat Oakland the better it will appear for
the Portland crowd. Cooper pitched for
the cripples and Shields performed a like
eervlce for Portland? Each twlrler was hit
tov five safeties, but Pete's pets brought
home a total of three runs, while not one
"Webfoot made the round-trip Journey.
Portland played the game in ragtime, and
a total of eight errors Is quite sufficient
ior any pitcher to lose his game. Raidy,
Hollingsworth and Elsey we're the chief
rOffenders,' and they each contributed two
errors to the day's performance.

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. & (Special.)
"There's the Indian," was the remark
ionWi at Rporeation Park this afternoon
when Sam Morris, the Indian pitcher for
the Browns, appeared. Manager sammy
Vlgneux of the Portland Browns received
a message last night. It read: "Will
be on hand Sunday and in shape to win
for you." The terse telegram was signed
Sam Is the Nez Perce Indian who won
the two gomes he pitched for Portland
when the Brownies were climbing out of
the cellar Into third place on their own
hunting grounds. Reports from Salem,
Or., where Morris was raised, are that he
can pitch with the best of them and that
those who know a twlrler when they see
one will recognize the goods in this
"You'll see for yourself," said Vlgneux
last night. "Morris is no advance agent.
All I have to do Is to put him on the
slab. He does the rest himself."
Tomorrow afternoon the plan Is to
warm him up for the game he will pitch
against Oakland on Labor Day.

JERRY POWERS GOING EAST.
Greatest Admirer of Brovrns Will
Wlthdrav Smiling: Countenance.
Jerry Powers, an ardent admirer of the
Browns, general good fellow, and for the
last couple of years employed at a local
cigar store, left yesterday morning for
Indlanola, la. Jerry's departure from
Portland will be a great surprise to his
many friends, who have looked upon him
as a sort of fixture. He will also be great
ly missed by the members of the baseball
team, for It was Jerry who took a flying
trip to Sacramento last Spring when the
club was being tramped on by the South
ern teams, and by his genial good humor
and enthusiasm encouraged the Browns
to keep plugging away. "When the Browns
won their first game from Mique Fisher's
crew on Good Friday, Jerry was the hap
piest man In the country.
Powers goes to Indlanola for the pur
pose of going Into business with his broth
er, who visited Portland several weeks
ago for the purpose of taking Jerry back
with him. Jerry liked selling cigars, but
he was finally persuaded to join his
brother in the clothing business. The good
wishes of his Portland friends, and they
are many, go with him, and while they
I predict that he will soon tire of Iowa and
again return to Portland, they hope his
business venture will be successful.

ARE LIVING A RAPID LIFE
MEN AND WOMEN OF TODAY
TRAVEL THE PACE THAT KILLS.
Dr. House Preaches Vigorously
Against the Vices of the Age
and Decadence of Nation.
The vices of the times came In for a
scathing, denunciation in terms which
leave no room for mistake as to his
meaning by the Rev Edwin L. House at
the First Congregational Church yester
day morning. The sermon was entitled
"The Pace That Kills," and was a gen
eral condemnation of the modern hjgh
pressure life and exhortation to a quiet
er, simpler life.
Dr. House, after alluding to the burn
ing of an automobile and the wrecking
of a passenger train trying to make up
lost time, in the way of an introduction
came to the application of his subject in
"Our age is one of frantic haste and
rush. The old leisure is gone. We have,
no ume ior proper ana aaequate mental
development; no time to see our children
and families; no time to give to moral
culture. Boys and girls are rushed for
ward out of days that rightly belong to
them, to take up duties that rightly be
long to men and women. Young men and
women too often come forth from school
and college with frail bodies and over
"Then look at some of the business
methods of our day. How men by a fast
pace that kills, are trying to amass
wealth. Short cuts are made. Get-rlch-quick
methods are adopted, and many
men go so far that they deliberately steal
from their employers, or from a deluded
"And then we have a social pace that
kills. In order to get into society, to
stand well, and attract attention, one
must be a 'faultless dresser.' The pace
among young men and women of today
of moderate earning capacity is too fast.
It either compels many to run Into debt,
or else drives them out on to the streets
to act as highwaymen or, as often Is the
case, to defalcation.
"Says one: 'We have fallen on easy
times. Life Is. luxurious. Ours is an age
of cushions and rosewatcr.' But there 13
arduous -work to do. The city that has
been given over to the control of gamblers
and prostitutes, that has gone into part
nership with the houses of evil, must
'reap the pace that kills,'
"There Is a great city, in England that
has a water supply with a deficiency of
lime In it, and more warped and rickety
limbs are to be seen In the children of
that city than in any other city of Great
Britain. And In our day religious living
and thinking and voting, and social life is
such, that the wonder grows, 'if there,
could be any manhood under such Influ
ence that would be robust and straight
limbed.' We may stand the strain for
awhile, but In the long run we shall reap
what we are sowing.
"Another pace that kills is riotous Hv
ing. Lately our papers have given to
us the career of two young men who have
given themselves to women, wine and
gambling, who took the downward grade.
turned on steam and sent their palatial
train to the bottom fast.
"And some of our young women have
been going at a frightful pace. During the
past week or two, the names of half a
dozen womeii have been In the press in
connection with the charge of murder,
and back of the murder was the nameless
sin, and others have been connected with
various other offenses against society
until It would seem as If woman had come
to the place where her life was making
for destruction, rather than for reforma
tion. "There Is a picture in Paris called the
'Decadence of the Romans.' The brutal
ized faces have no trace of Roman dig
nity, as one can see in contrasting them
with the noble features of the statues
which fringe the hall. It is a significant
fact that the models for tho faces were
found by the painter in the streets of
Paris. It might be worth some material
gain for some great artist to give us a
picture entitled.: 'The Decadence of the
Americans.' It might be true that degen
erate sons might sneer at the hardihood
of their fathers. But young men who
have been introduced to dissipation, who
get rotten before they get rip'e, who
spend all their time in the sublime con
templation of the height of their collar
and the width of their shoe and tho color
of their necktie, are not the men who will
compare very favorably with the strong
robust manly men of other days, and
are not the ones to transform our cities,
our politics or our morals.
"It is time that the best element of
the city put their hands on the throttle of
city politics, and tlmo that all who love
virtue and home, and morality, live a
quieter, plainer and simpler life, if they
would save our young men and women
from the pace that kills."

tenary Methodist Church, East Side, spoke
last evening on "The Sin of Gambling."
He said in part:
"Gambling bears direct relation to the
commercial Interests of the community.
It is so subtle and deceptive that the ex
tent and scope of the evil flowing out of
it and from it Is not generally realized.
Once a man becomes a gambler, outside
of a miracle, there Is no hope of his re
covery or escape-from the web of the evil.
He Is ruined almost irretrievably. The
Bible puts a premium on honest efforts.
I have most profound respect for the man
who gives honest toll or service in some
form for all that ho receives, but only
contampt for him who seeks to get some
thing for nothing. The truly honest man
gives honest toll or its equivalent for all
he receives. Otherwise he is a gam
bler or a thief. The principle to get rich
quick is demoralizing and destructive to
the commercial and Industrial life of the
I community or city. It simply means
something for nothing, and Is not honest.
He who seeks riches by getting possession
of the money or property of others Is dis
honest. Such a man cannot make a good
citizen. Gambling destroys all noble sen
timent. The gambler becomes cold and
hard-hearted, and will betray his best
friend. He Is unfit for any trust or re
sponsibility. Not infrequently the gam
bler uses the money of others. The habit
fastens itself upon young men before they
are aware of It, and it destroys their char
"Our streets are crowded with idle men,
even In these times of prosperity, who prey
upon the community. They dress well, but
they have no occupation. They are pro
fessional gamblers. The ordinances of
this city drive the tramp out of town or
put him to work, but to this Idle floating
population it does not apply. It rather
protects this class. They throng our
streets, and yet they have no business.
They are protected. The politicians fear
them and their power. Under the sanction
of the law and the Indorsement of the
officers, they ply their vocation of gam
bling. "For the city to foster, to wink at or
in any way protect the gambler com
mits the greatest possible crime known to
civilization, and that city which does so
protect or foster this monster evil must
suffer the consequences."
Mr. Holllngshead gave many instances
of the fatal passion for gambling, of Its
fascination and the almost Impossibility
of breaking away from It once the habit
becomes fixed on the individual. He
closed by declaring that the man who
gambles cannot be trusted in any capacity
whatever. He contended that gambling
Is one of the bottom evils of all crimes
and the destroyer of character.

"This week," said Bishop Thoburn, "I
received a letter from the editor of the
Pacific Christian Advocate with a picture
of the missionaries taken in London 41
years ago. I recognized my own. face,
somewhat faded with the lapse of time,
but the picture had been touched up. The
request came that I should write some
thing for the paper to go with the pic
ture. As I was making my notes, I re
called that at that time there were but
500 native converts and the field open to
missionary work was less In extent than
New England, but now we Iiave a field
longer than the distance between New
York and Honolulu, with a population of
hundreds of millions of natives. If our
own Methodist Church would awaken, a
contribution of 3 cents from each mem
ber per week would bring in $3,000,000 per
annum for missions."
