JOINS JOCKEY CLUB
Multnomah Fair Association
;RACE MEETING IN AUGUST
Annua! Races at Irvington Assured
Attempt to Secure Dates In July
Foiled by - Seattle's Supe
The Multnomah Fair Association of.
Portland is now a full-fledged membei
of the Pacific -Coast Jockey Club, and
from now on." with anything like luck,
Portland will nave a yearly race meet
that will be worth while. The Portland
Racing Association was taken into the
Pacific Coast fold at a meeting held in
Ban Francisco on Monday and. while
President R. A. Diamond did not secure
the racing dates he would have liked,
those allowed are acceptable. They are
August 8 to 2a
It was no more than to be expected
that Seattle, whose race meeting last
year was a success, locally if not from
the liorsemen's standpoint, would have
the call when it came to the choice of
dates. Mr. Diamond would have liked
to get the race date in July. Seattle
would have liked to unload upon Port
land dates early in June, but Mr. Dia
mond was on hand to checkmate this
move on the part of A. T. Van De "Vanter.
"To have given Portland the July dates
it wanted would have been the means of
dividing the Seattle race meet, which
could hardly be expected, when It is con
sidered that the coming race meet in
Portland is a sort of experiment, while
at Seattle it has been proven that a long
meeting can and does pay.
Good Meet Is Assured.
"While it is true that Mr. Diamond went
to the San Francisco meeting hoping
to get the Portland dates for July, it goes
without saying that the association will
, accept the August dates given It. Mr.
Diamond's wish to have the July dates Is
two-fold, first because of the fair weather
which usually prevails during the mid
Summer month and, second, because the
exodus of Portland society does not take
place until August. A July meeting
would have assured a better attendance,
but it is expected that when it becomes
known that between 500 and 600 of the
best horses racing on the Pacific Coast
will be stabled at the Irvington track
during the meeting. Summer ,. vacations
wIlL.be postponed two weeks In order to
attend the races. The dates, August 8
to 20, aside from the fact that a great
number of the people go to the seaside,
could not have been better chosen. It
may conflict a bit with baseball, but
who will go to a baseball game when the
bangtails are romping over the turf?
Men Who Revived Racing.
Now that ' the Multnomah Fair Asso
ciation is a member of the Pacific Coast
Jockey Club, It might be worth while to
throw a few bouquets to those men who
have 'made the thing possible, R. A. Dia
mond. Lewis H. Adams and Sanford
Hirsch and others. When these gentle
men took hold of the racing problem
they were met at every turn with. "You
can't make it go." But they did make
it go. The brief meeting held last Fall
was a success, but the croakers' were
not silenced. They contended that the'
racing game in Portland had received a
-death Slow'5 at the JbaCds of the gamblers'
who "had been fostering It anc no matter
what was done or who was back of it,
it could not be revived and placed on a
sound financial basis. But these men
did revive Interest and, what Is more,
they established a financial standing
among the horsemen that has traveled,
not only on the Coast, but wherever rac
ing has been held this "Winter. For
perhaps the first time In the history of
the Irvington track the purses were paid
after each race, a thing so surprising to
the horsemen that they never tired of
talking about it. Some of the harness men
wno had raced at Irvington several years
before and had never received the purses
they had won, thought the present man
agement "easy" and tried to collect.
The officials of the association felt sure
of becoming a member of the Jockey Club,
and during the Winter months they kept
a force of men at work at the track.
The track near the inside rail was
ploughed up last Fall and, when the
proper time comes, it will be worked until
the whole track becomes as fast as any
In the Northwest It Is also the Inten
tion of the association to cut away the
hill at the first turn. About 200 stables
will be added to the present number and
the sheds for the livestock show, which
will follow the Salem Fair, will also be

YOUNG CORBETT IS LOAFING.
His Friends Fear He Will Not Be In
Shape to Meet Britt.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 8. Young
Corbett's apparent carelessness regard
ing his coming battle - with Jimmy
Brltt is causing his- admirers some un
easiness. His present intention is to
settle down to training on Tuesday
next. This will allow him but 15 days
In which to prepare himself for what
is conceded to be a hard battle. -
It was thought the lesson he learned
when he fought Hanlon the first timo
would make him cautious, but it did
not have a lasting effect. If Hanlon
had experienced men behind him that
night the general opinion is that hf
would have won, as he caught his op
ponent entirely out of form.
When Corbett fought McGovern here
he was 11 pounds over weight five days
before the contest, and was making no
effort to get down to the required
figures.- He was finally Induced to take
a serious view cf the situation, and
weighed in safely at the appointed
There Is a suspicion that Corbett holds
Britt lightly, and that he thinks a little
training will carry him through safely.
This' confidence Is likely to prove his
undoing some day when he Is caught
napping by some strong, ambitious

PACIFIC HAS GOOD TRACK TEAM
Will Enter Men In Intercollegiate
and Other Meets.
PACIFIC UNIVERSITY, Forest Grove.
March 8. (Special.) Manager Thompson,
of Pacific's track team, has accepted the
invitation given by Columbia University
to enter a team In the Intercollegiate
meet to be held there April 16. As each
Institution must pay the expenses of Its
own team, Pacific will not send all her
men, but will endeavor to have enough
representative athletes present to make
a good showing.
The track squad is training every even
ing indoors now under the direction of
Captain Gilbert, who will have charge of
the work until the arrival of Coach Mc
Coughern, April .1
The Interest taken In track athletics
here this year Is quite unprecedented.
With the exception of Walker, a half
mile man, and Harris, second place man
In the sprints, all of last year's athletes
are in school. There is also more good
material among the new men than any
previous season, so Pacific will certainly
put out a fast aggregation.
The manager will schedule meets with
all the leading institutions of the state,
and will also send a team to compete in
the big meet of the N. A. A. A. at
Walla Walla If Pacific's application for
membership in the association Is accepted.

will have to be to go the route, for I am
In first-class trim myself and am confi
dent that I will return to Portland a win
ner. My training has passed "off without
a mishap, with but one exception. My
trainer, while out on the road, slipped on
an Oregon City boiled union and sprained
his neck, but he is rounding to In fine
shape. Seriously, however, I box daily
with Jerry Rustln and Mike McGee, two
local boys, and I have plenty of work.
Jerry trains on mince pie and says he does
so because there Is more beef In the pie
than In an Oregon City steak.
"I have already chosen my seconds.
They will be Tommy Tracey, Jack Hill
and Bob Thorn, and Thorn Is training me.
The people here are taking great Interest
In the coming battle and they are look

however, refused an offer of 56000 for the
season a few months ago. This, however,
was while he was still at college and anx
ious, to retain his amateur standing. The
fact that this is no longer so material to
him may have caused him to accept a
It has been settled that George Hllde

lege of negotiation with the clever out
fielder. Before siting up Hildebrand the

realize that the students generally are
deeply Interested in Spring athletics and
an enthusiastic squad of strong material
is now training In the gymnasium and
anxiously awaiting -for enough sunshine
to permit of outdoor work.

At a meeting of the Hoquiam baseball
team last evening it was decided that the
team throw the league proposition aside
and proceed to make a schedule with
Aberdeen for the coming season. The
harbor towns wanted the league to run
as It did last season, but Harnion, who
has the management of Centralla, has
hung out for a 50 per cent division of
the gate receipts, to which the harbor
towns would not agree.
Manager Brewer, of the team, resigned
owing to not being able to give It pro
per attention, and Ralph L. Phllbrlck,
who so successfully managed the bunch
last year, was elected to the position.

of the old association will be bought in
by the new team, and they will go ahead
securing three players for the season.
Everything looks good for a prosperous
season this year.

TILLAMOOK, Or., March 8. (Special.)
Representative B. L. Eddy left yesterda
for Southern Oregon for a few weeks'
rest. He Is an aspirant for Circuit Judge
and will have a solid delegation from Til
lamook County to back him in the Repub
lican State Convention. While on his way
to Southern Oregon he will stop over at
several points to see what his prospects
are, although he Is not making a very ac
tive campaign for the nomination.
Local politics are exceedingly quiet. The
two offices that are most sought after are
Sheriff and County Clerk. E. W. Stanley,
the present Sheriff, and George W. Gray
son, are considered the two strongest as
pirants for Sheriff, while for County Clerk
George B. Lamb, the present County
School Superintendent, has declared him
self a candidate, and as he Is one of the
most popular young men In the county;
his chances are good to land the nomina
tion. Chester Holden, G. B. Alley, Carl
Haberlock and H. V. Alley have also
been mentioned as candidates, and there
may be 'more ajralrante' XTr these offices
before the convention meets. '
Very little is said about nominees for the
other offices, with the exception of As
sessor A. M. Hare, who will probably be
renominated. From all Indications Eddy
delegates will control the convention.
NO REVISION OF THE TARIFF.
Senator Fulton Says Government
Needs All the Revenue.
ASTORIA. Or.. March & (Special.)
United States Senator Fulton, waiting to
a friend in this city, expresses the be
lief that Congress will not. revise "the
tariff after the Presidential election.
Senator Fulton says our revenues at
present are jiot any too great to meet
expenses, and he believes the Govern
ment will require all the funds which the
present tariff schedule will net. He
points out a general desire for river and
harbor improvements, the isthmian canal,
a service pension bill and Government aid
for roads, which will necessitate ex
penditure of many hundreds of millions.
"True, the tariff schedule will be re
adjusted," the Senator says, "but I am
not In favor of readjustment that looks
to any considerable decrease, or places
many articles on the free list."
Speaking of the proposal to put coal
on the free list again, the Senator says
such action on the part of Congress would
lead to a demand for free admission of
many other articles. In this, respect he
"Free coal would be a great advantage
to Oregon, but you must bear in mind
we cannot expect to get free coal with
out consenting to the admission of other
things duty free. For instance, lumber
will certainly be put on the free list If
coal shall be, and many localities are de
manding free admission of wheat from
Canada. I do not think Congress will
revise the tariff after the Presidential

continue to struggle until completely dis
abled, and that's the end.

trouble, you can stop all progress and
