"Worbt About Next Year's Race.
Everybody -was glad when the great con
test between the yachts Reliance and
Shamrock came to an end, as the intense
mental strain and worry connected with
It had begun to be tiresome, and It was
pleasant to think that it would be a year
before it was renewed. Some, however,
never get enough of that sort of thing,
And ae already worrying about the next
contest. A large room set apart as a
"snug harbor" by F. Botefuhr is frequent
ed by captains and officers of ships in
port, pilots, ship-Joiners and others in
terested in all seagoing matters, and
among this crowd a lively dispute has
sprung up in regard to international law
or courtesy in connection with the con
test for the cup next year. Some said
the Japanese would enter the lists next
lime, and perhaps other nations. Others
said this would not be allowed. To, this it
was replied that as the contest for the cup
was an international affair It must bo
open to all nations. It was admitted that
perhaps European nations might be al
lowed to enter the contest, but that Mon
golians, Japanese or Chinese, could not
be allowed such a privilege, and that In
any event those wishing to enter the con
test must be invited or secure the permis
sion of the New Tork Yacht Club, the
guardian of the cup. Some said that as
the contest was between the English and
the Americans it would not be just to
either to allow other nations to come in
and perhaps carry off the prize by some
accident. In short, there are all sorts of
opinions among the crowd disputing over
the question, but none of them can be
convinced that he is wrong. It appears,
however, that they all are wrong, and
that the contest is a private affair, under
the management of the New York Yacht;
Club, and international only In the sense
that it is between two nations. The club
probably will neverrefuse a challenge
from any one to race for the possession
of the cup.
Raises Foxes and Ducks ok Same
Fami. A former resident of Portland and
En enthusiastic sportsman, now residing
on a farm In Yamhill County, still re
tains an interest in a fine shooting pre
serve down the river. He was in the city
yesterday, looking into the prospect for
this season's sport. On being congratulat
ed on his healthy, robust appearance, as
due to life In the country, he said that
there were some unpleasant things con
nected with life on a farm. He could pro
tect himself against the Incursions of the
Codjln moth and the San Jose scale by
spraying, but it grieved him when he had
raised a lot of chickens to the proper
size for frying to have some mink or
crow devour them, or when he had raised
some crop of vegetables to perfection to
have a horse or steer break In and de
stroy it. Just last' week he had met with
a loss which hurt him sorely. He had been
raising a flock of 36 ducks of a peculiar
breed, a small species of mallard, to use
as decoys on his shooting preserves. Just
as they had attained their full growth
and the duck-shooting season had arrived,
a pair of foxes, which had a den and a
litter of young ones on his place, pounced
on his flock of ducks and carried off IS of
them in one day. He is expecting to lose
the others soon. The old foxes had prob
ably been waiting for the ducks to attain
their growth, and In the nick of time took
a share of them. The victim called in a
judicial friend, hoping to De consoled for
his loss, but this friend only remarked
that he had long ago discovered that it
was not advisable to raise ducks and foxes
on the same farm. An effort will be made
to get revenge on the foxes, but whether
this can be done before they get away
with the rest of the ducks or not remains '
to be seen.
No Native Soft-Shell Crabs. "Why
does not someone go into the business of
growing soft-shell crabs on this coast?"
asked a man yesterday, as he planked
down $2 for a dozen of these little deli
cacies, brought all the way from Chesa
peake Bay. "They transplant Eastern
oysters here," he continued, "and they
prosper and thrive as well, or even bet
ter, than they no in the East." "Are
soft-shell crabs a special species?" asked
a man standing by who had been jin
gling coins in his1 pocket and evidently
trying to make up his mind whether to
invest $2 In a handful of them or ntft. A
friend volunteered the Information that
"soft shells" were only ordinary crabs
in their moulting stage. He said that
small crabs grow to be larger ones, and
that in order to expand it was necessary
to cast their shells, and as soon as they
had stretched themselves as much as pos
sible they grew another hard shell. This
operation they repeated several times In
attaining their full growth. "Then," said
the first speaker, "there should be no
difficulty in transplanting some crabs of
this particular kind from Maryland in
their shells alive, as they get them
through ajlve without their shells, .and
if they will flourish here there should be
big money in them at $2 a dozen." The
dealer said the crabs sold readily at that
price, all he could get through in good
order. The only , trouble he had was that
Jje could not get enough of them.
Visits Rich Mining District. "I have
Just returned from a trip to British Col
umbia," said C. E. Zumwalt, a well-known
mining man of Montana, yesterday,
"where I visited the best mines in that
section of the country. I first went to
Boslyn, B'. C, and found the famous Le
Roy mises shipping more than they have
ever shipped in the past, with great pros
pects for the future, and also found the
"War Eagle and Center.Star mines run
ning to full capacity, and many other
smaller mines In operation, and from there
I then went to the rich Lardeau country,
where I visited the Eva, Lucky Boy and
X.ardeau-GoldsmIth mines, where I found
xnuch greater values than the Roslyn
camps, especially In the Lardeau-Gold-smlth,
where I found the miners to be
taking out ore which will run Into the
thousands, and in some places was
streaked with pure gold, as though they
were digging from a mountain of pure
gold itself. I am under the impression
that the Lardeau-Goldsmith is destined to
be one of If not the greatest mlnon Can
ada. In all my trips through the United
States and Canada I have never been so
greatly Impressed as with my recent trip
through the Lardeau country, and I am
satisfied that this part of Canada will
prove to be one of the richest mining dis
tricts yet known." Mr. Zumwalt left last
evening for Livingstone.

Thi Axt of Fksdixo "Wild Ducks. A.
large number of 'sportsmen went out
after ducks on Sunday, but "most of them
returned without a feather, although the
day was a favorable one. Some said
there were no ducks in the lakes; others
said that the air was lull of ducks
"coming in," but they had not located
themselves, and so were not ready to. bo
shot. At a few places where feed has
been put out judiciously to attract the
ducks as they come in, very fair bags
were made, the best being at Morgan's.
There was no complaint of shooting be
ing Interfered with on Sunday by hay
makers, but there was lots of hay In
shocks along many of the lakes, show
ing that haying had been going on there
during the week. The feeding of ducks to
lure them to lalces where they may be
shot has become almost a- science. Long
trails of wheat are strewn In shallow
water In order to lead the flocksof ducks
to certain points, where a good sYipply
of wheat is kept, and which afford good
chances for shooting them. It must not
be supposed that a lot of wheat is plied
up, und that when the ducks are feeding
on It they are shot. The wheat is scat
tered in water about 12 inches In depth
for mallards and other large ducks, and
six Inches' in depth for teal. The wheat
sinks In- the mud at the bottom, and the
ducks feed largely; at night or ' in the
early morning. They dibble In the mud
with their bills and find the kernels of
wheat, which they washclean and then
swallow. They cannot se'e tlie wheat at
all, but appear to know what It Is when
they get hold of 1U When a lot of ducks
have been feeding at night in a lake
they are sometimes scared out early In
the morning. In the afternoon they get
hungry and begin to come back for more
wheat. Then the hunters conceal them
selves In a blind and shoot them as they
come in. The owners of preserves try to
draw a good lot of ducks to their lakes
by feeding them liberally and increasing
the amount of wheat put out as the
number of ducks increases, till a certain
point is reached. Sportsmen are looking
forward to having fine sport this Winter,
bufonly those who feed with skill and
good Judgment are likely to kill many.
Flowers not Plentiful. Flowers are
not- so plentiful as they were in the
spring or have been all summer. Wild
flowers are mostly out of bloom, and
roses have been scarce of late, and the
number of plants In bloom in gardens Is
much reduced. Even florists offer but
small -fcariety, plentiful supplies of lilies
being their strong suit, and orchldswlth
a few varieties of roses, making their
chief attractions. The late showers have
been hailed with joy by rose culturlsts,
who say that they arts now assured of a
fine fall crop of roses. The bushes which
hare been kept cleared of fading flowers
are covered with buds, and in a -week
or two rose gardens will look almost as
well as they did in the spring, and there
will he a profusion of fine roses until a
deadly blighting black frost comes.
Many varieties will not pay any atten
tion to early frosts, but when there
comes a killing frost they have to suc

The merry, rollicking comedy opera,
''The Chaperons," Is to be seen In this
city at tho Marquam Grand Theater for
four nights, beginning next Monday, Sep
tember 14, with a special matinee Wednes
day, in all its gorgeous splendor. An Ori
ental tinge is always essential In produc
ing the most. brilliant stage effects, and
to this end no doubt the authors of "The.
Chaperons" located the last and xaoft
elaborate scene in the opera at Alexan
dria, Egypt. The widest scope for the
display of female finery is afforded, and
Is said to have suggested to the manage
ment a lavish outlay In this direction.
This season's company contains the names
of the chief popularlzers of the successful
"Chaperons," and with an experienced
eye to the well-being of the music and
laughter departments there will be seen
such' time-tried players as John G. Sparks,
Mabel HIte, Thomas Whlffen, May Boley,
W. V. Struntz, Arthur Earnest, Mae
Stebblns, and a chorus of 40. "The Chap
erons" has enjoyed a three months' run
in New York, and one or more prosper
ous visits to all the principal cities, and
in this its third season is expected to
outclass all competition in the comedy
opera field. The advance sale of scats
will be placed on sale Friday morning at
The Baker Thenter Opening:.
No orders by' mall or wire can be filled
until th6 line of people buying seats for
the opening performances at the Baker
Theater has been disposed of. This Is the
only fair way to treat patrons, and Mon
day and Tuesday has been given ov.gr to
those who want season reservations only.
The majority of these will be filled and
listed, and the regular sale for all others
will begin Wednesday morning at 10
o'clock. The first performance will be
next Sunday afternoon, September 13, the
Nelll-Morosco company appearing in
Viola Allen's great" play, "In the Palace
of the King," and those who want to at
tend the opening performances should
buy early in order to, get the best scats.

only fault that can be found wltti them Is
that they make the people laugh so hard
that their sides ache. Their parodies of
popular songs are exceedingly clever, and

land has seen In a long time, but an ex

manner and is therefore most pleasing to
the Intellectual lovers of the drama.
There will be the usual matinee Saturday.
Another Big House at Shields'.
Fine weather and an excellent pro
gramme filled Shields' Park again last
night. Prior to Sunday people spoke of
Grace Walton Haynle's possible failure.
Now they- speak of her pronounced suc
cess. Her nervousness has worn away,
and she now. appears with the ease and
assurance of a veteran. The success of
the show does not devolve on Mrs. Haynie
alone, for nine big acts appear, and they
are all excellent. The park closes Sunday
night with a new programme.

Senator Mitchell promulgated that Judge
Carey would be vicarious chief in Mult
nomah. The Simon people, at this an
nouncement, have resumed sharpening
None of tho politicians doubts that Judge
Carey will shoulder the responsibility
which , Senator Mitchell has placed upon
him. But how much of this responsibility
will be Carey's and how much Matthews'
is a question still in the gloom of doubt.
Judge Carey was asked yesterday to an
swer two questions; first, whether he
would accept the charge, and second, what
would be his plan of procedure. He re
sponded: "It Is too early to talk politics now.
When the proper time comes, I will call
together the County Central Committee.
It is not opportune at present to begin
Judge Carey added that If the duty of
leading the fight next Spring should fall
upon him, he would undertake Its per
formance with misgivings and with reluc
tance. "It would Involve personal sacri
fices," he remarked, "which I could not
Further than this Judge Carey would
not talk for publication. His discourse
made it evident thdt at present; he shuns
tho prominence to which the position of
leader lifts him;
Comments were many and various
among the politicians yesterday. Mem
bers of the County Central Committee
commended tho sagacity of Senator Mitch
ell in making the Judge his vicegerent;
that is, all but one did so, and he ex
claimed in his woeful loneliness:
"It's Matthews all over; again. Carey,
you say? Don't believe It. It's Matthews
all over again. Carey will lie down. Just
as he has done before. Don't you remem
ber he wanted the nomination for Gov
ernor? Matthews not taking part in poli
tics? Don't believe that, either. What
Bboiit the report that he agreed to deliver
certain votes in the City Council for the
new telephone franchise?"
But such talk as this is not heard much
in the central committee. All the mem
bers of the committee whb were met yes
terday, save the one, commended Carey
as an able organizer and a man of char
acter. So did the one, but he declared
that Matthews would be the real man
ager of the show.
"But." went on the dissenter, "I want to
see a new deal. So do lots of other fel
lows. There's Senator Hunt and Senator
Andrew Smith and Postmaster Bancroft
and well, they'd all like a new deal. I
-'want to see Influential men from the
"Mitchell camp and the Simon camp coau
esce into a new organization."
It may be said in this relation that
many advLers of Senator Mitchell have
desired such a new deal, though not to
include the Simon people. Senator Mitch
ell worked at this problem as best he
could, but gave it up. Just before he
started for Europe he assigned the prob
lem to Judge Carey, saying:
"I have reason to believe that should
Judge Carey decide to continue as chair
man he would desire to associate with
himself an executive committee of repre
sentative men. Suoh men would be influ
ential members of the party."
And It may be said In this relation that
extreme care has been taken to keep any
prospective "Droadenlng "but" from weak
ening the hold of Senator Mitchell and
of the central committee. Also the fact
may be mentioned that Senator Mitchell
has desired to retire Mr. Matthews to the
background. "Many of the Senator's
friends," remarked a member of the cen
tral committee yesterday, "have told him
that his organization would be the strong
er If his enemies could be kept from al
leging Matthews' personality as a con
spicuous part of It. All their talk has
left its impression on the Senator."
One of tho above "friends" and, by the
way, he is as close to the Senator as any
body, was heard to declare near his of
fice nn Third street:
"Mitchell will have to got rid of Mat
thews or get left. That's all there is to
It. A lot of us fellows won't run around
But a leading member of the central
committee, who has an office on First
street, entered the lists against the ene
mies of Mr. Matthews to say:
"This Matthews talk is all hot air. It
comes from the soreheads. Mr. Mathews
has always been true blue, and then the
organization which his friends hold In
their hands Is making for the good of
the city. Judge Carey, I believe, will con
tinue to head the committee. He Is am
ply qualified for the position.
, "No, there's not the slightest discord In
tho committee. I have not heard a jar
ring note. Our old enemies are all there,
but we are ready tp meet them."
Judge Carey is still revolving in his mind
the "advisory" or "executive" committee
Idea. "I really think," said a committee
man near the postofflce yesterday, "that
an advisory committee would run things
to suit Itself and to accord with the best
Interests of tile party. It wouldn't stand
for any monkey business from the cen
"But," Interposed somebody, "doesn't the
central committee hold the real power?"
.The reply from the first man was not
direct, for he said:
"Mr. Matthews has separated himself
from the committee as much as he can
do. If he should get out of town he could
not do so more completely. Yes, he
might, but you know I mean he is not
trying to influence "thecommlttee. He Is

BLUFFED THE ROBBER.
Hi 8Th wnym a n Ran Becanse Intended
Victim Pretended to Draw Gun. '
Because when challenged . he slid his
right hand quickly to his hip pocket and
shouted a threatening defiance, Ernest
House, the Third-street restaurant-keeper,
escaped a highway robbery last evening at
Grand avenue and Tillamook street
Mr. House was proceeding on his way
home about 10 o'clock when a man of
whom he can give little description,
sprang in front of him.
"Throw up your hands," said the bold
highwayman In the stereotyped robber's
"Get out of this quick," cried House, at
the same Instant stepping quickly back
a pace and moving his. right hand to an
imaginary pistol In the trousers pocket.
Though the would-be highwayman held
a gun. the sight of Mr. House's hand in
the vicinity of his hip pocket combined
with the ungentlemanly attitude of the
victim was too much for his bravery. He
took to his heels and fled, never pausing
for a moment until out of sight down
Then the restaurant man went quietly
on his way and as the pistol which was
not there was not again called Into ac
tion, he reached his home, 4SS Rodney
avenue, in safety.
All the description House can give of
the man who made so poor an attempt to
rob him is that he was young, and, he
thinks, wore a gray felt hat. He was
of medium Blze, with a deep voice. But
the voice, manly and strong as it sound
ed, was not supported by nerve, so that
the highwayman, as such, was a failure.

Cutting down thistles no more relieves
the land of thistles than does scouring
the scalp cure dandruff. In each case per
manent relief can only come from eradi
cating permanently the cause. A germ
that plows up the scalp In searching for
the. hair root where It saps the vitality,
causes dandruff, falling hair and bald
ness. If you kill that germ, you'll have
no dandruff, but a luxuriant suit of hair.

aration In the world that cures dandruff
and falling hair by killing the germ.
