FRESNO, CaL, April 13. (Special.)
Portland" defeated San Francisco today by
a score of 11 to 10, the game being the
poorest exhibition of the season. Cutter
was batted out of the San Francisco box
In the first Inning. Terkes replaced him.
He, too, was pounded hard on the start,
the 11 runs being made In the first five
Innings. After that San Francisco began
to land on Thlelman hard, and he -was
taken out In the eighth and replaced by
Butler. The game was all but lost In the
ninth Inning. "With the score 11 to 9, and
bases full, Butler hit Irwin -with the
ball, forcing In Frisco's tenth run. Mas
sey rapped out a long hit to center, Dren
nan capturing It in a sensational running
match and saving the game for Portland.

OREGON DOGS FARE WELL.
Minnesota Joe Is Defeated by Wool
ton Bang, of Salem.
SEATTLE, "Wash., April 13. (SpeclaL)
Portland dogs fared well In the first
day's Julging at the Seattle Kennel Club's
ninth annual bench show, which opened
today. The Oregon metropolis was par
ticularly strong in the cocker class, but
Oregon is given good representation for
This year's bench show la being held at
the Madison Park pavilion on the shores
of Dake "Washington, two miles from
town. Despite this handicap that comes
from inadequate street-car facilities and
the long ride out to the show, the at
tendance on the opening day was fair.
There Is a sprinkling of Oregon men
present, breeders and dog fanciers being
practically the only ones at the show. A
few Portland men In town also visited
One of the big surprises of the show
which opened in this city today was the
defeat of H. F. Ziegler's champion
pointer Minnesota Joe, by Frank J.
Moore's Woolton Bang. "Woolton Bang
won first in the open dog competition,
sweeping everything before him. He then
ran against Minnesota Joe In the win
ners' class. Judge Watson considered
Joe as being too rangy and leggy. On
the other hand "Woolton Bang was In
perfect form and showed what dog men
call compact formation. He Is consid
ered a typical workman. In Justice to
Joe It Bhould be said that he shows a.
slight deterioration In form from last
year. Minnesota Joe comes from The
Dalles and "Woolton Bang from Salem.
Impartial critics say that Judge "Watson
was right in tearing down champion Joe.
The Portland Cocker Kennels had an
easy time of It in the black cocker class
with Zaza. She won first in open bitches
and first in winner bitches Portland
Twinkle, owned by the same kennels,
won first in open bitches, for any solid
color other than black, and first in the
winners' class. Portland Dick, a dog
now owned In Victoria, B. C, won first

first In winners' dogs, showing Barney

dog Dude Nye, of Portland, won second
to John Rlpllnger's Seattle English set

time that Dude Nye has ever been defeat
ed, having won four sweepstakes in Pa
cific Kennel Deaguo shows, and needing
but one more win to make his a champion
of record In the Pacific Kennel League.
Ho was sent to Seattle to make the neces

He was met at the train by a number

WILSON IS SILENT
Furth Waits Vainly for Signal
to Fight Piles.
KING - SENATORS EXPECTANT
Hold Meeting That Runs Until Mid
night Without Definite Conclusion-Piles
tions With Wilson.
SEATTLE, "Wash., April 13. (Special.)
The hold-over Senators and "Wilson poli
ticians, who tried yesterday to bring him
into an open fight against Piles, waited
all day today for an answer from Wilson
and got none.
A meeting of the hold-over Senators was
held this afternoon and continued until
nearly midnight tonight, but nothing
came of it. The Senators could get no
word from Wilson and they would not
take the Initiative. As the matter was
left the Senators aro in tho position of
men awaiting developments and willing
to accept whatever comes of the political
fight they expect to break out
Jacob Furth waited all day for Wil
son's answer to the offer that he would
precipitate a fight against Piles, but Wil
son did not give the word. Furth and
his friends claim they had an appoint
ment with Wilson this morning, but If
they did the ex-Senator did not keep it.
In fact he did not meet any of tho poli
ticians that are urging him to fight Piles.
Wilson is still waiting on tho Plies man
agement in the hope that they will agree
to terms that are satisfactory to him.
Piles himself has reopened negotiations
with Wilson after having declared point
blank that he would not agree to a divi
sion of tho county strength. Piles hopes
to bo able to induce Wilson to accept a
promise that in tho event Piles Is not able
to force his own election he will turn
the delegation from this county over to
This Is not what Wilson "wants, but it
is insisted by Piles' managers that it Is
the best that will be given him. The
Piles men claim that It would be suicldo
for them to divide the delegation between
Piles and Wilson and they will not listen
to such a compromise. Wilson Is con
fident that he has the city administra
tion and Influential politicians who aro
supporting Plies In sympathy with him
and that he will eventually get from Piles
a satisfactory concession.
This is the reason that he is keeping
away from Furth and the other Wilson
men that are urging an open fight.
BATTLE IN SOUTH DISTRICT.
Success of Lou Smith the Test of Se
attle Politicians' Sincerity.
SEATTLE, Wash., April 13. SpeciaU
The fight of the socalled "south dis
trict" for the Republican nomination for
Sheriff is a test of tho sincerity of Seattle
politicians. Leaders of that district are
making their contest to learn whether
the City of Seattle Intends to play fair
with the southern end of the county, and
if It Is shown that tho district Is cut out
of political Influence In King County an
eruption in Republican politics will fol
low. This condition is thoroughly understood
by the managers of tho Piles Senatorial
campaign, and they aro undeniably
alarmed. Among some of tho Piles' sup
porters the fear of a south district revolt
goes so far as to result In a prediction
that a portion of tho district, at least,
might bo lost to the county. Annexation
of Pierce is predicted, but this la some
thing the strongest men in the south
district protest against.
The possibility of a political show-down
between the city and country comes in
the fight of Lou Smith for the Republican
nomination for Sheriff. There havo been
stories afloat that this nomination was
promised by Piles when Smith stepped
out of the race, but this Is not a fact.
Piles might prefer to see Smith nominated
to harmonize the south district, but ho
has not pledged himself to deliver the
nomination, and, owing to local compli
cations, he cannot do so.
Smith will carry practically all of the
south district In his fight for nomination.
Complications resulting from a Legisla
tive and County Commissioner fight may
lose him betwen 25 and 30 votes, but of
the 155 votes the district has in the com
ing convention Smith will carry outright
about 120. Pride in the district's success
may give him the rest. In addition his
friends figure upon enough support from
the north district to 1st him come into
tho city with nearly 200 votes. With those
he should be able to force his nomina
tion for Sheriff.
That Smith is likely to be nominated
is conceded by Seattle politicians, and
there Is talk of cutting him at the polls.
Threats have been made that If Smith
is named he wlll'be sacrificed In the In
terests of Jack Williams, whom it Is ex
pected the Democrats will name. Will
iams was one of the men wounded in
the Tracy hunt.
Tho possibility of a fight against Smith
at the polls is what causes alarm to local
politicians. As far back as politicians
remember tho south district has had a
Populist for County Auditor; the Repub
licans have given the district a School
Superintendent, Assessor and Sheriff.
During the past four years two Repub
lican nominees from tho south district,
running for Sheriff, have been knifed to
death In the city, while tho remainder of
tho Republican ticket carried by an over
If the experience of the past two elec
tions should be repeated with Lou Smith,
Piles' managers fear the district will re
volt and fight at the Legislature, any
King County candidate for Senator. The
district leaders, in such circumstances,
would feel that the city of Seattle had
cut them off and would bo out for re
venge. There has been no direct statement
from the south district leaders that con
firms this feeling, but those who know
King County politics realize the Piles
management has the situation sized up
correctly. If Lou Smith is beaten In con
vention tb.e south district will not com
plain, but if he in knifed at the polls there
will be trouble. The district has four
votes in the Legislature, and might con
trol at least one more. This Is where
the most serious blow In retaliation would
In the event Smith Is nominated for
Sheriff the procedure likely to follow is
a demand upon influential local politic
ians for his election. It Is believed they
will be told that they will be held per
sonally responsible for his success, and
this would place the responsibility di
rectly upon the Piles' management.
TURNER FOR VICE-PRESIDENCY
Thurston County Indorses ex-Senator
OLYMPIA, Wash., April 13. (Special.)
The Thurston County Democratic Con
vention, held today -to elect delegates to
the Stato Convention, indorsed Hon.
George Turner, of Spokane, for Vice-President,
by the passage of the following res
olutions: "Resolved, By the Thurston County
Democratic Convention, assembled la
Olympla on this anniversary of the birth
day of Democracy's greatest disciple,
Thomas Jefforson, that It Is especially
appropriate on this occasion, and harmo
nious with the immortal Jefferson's fun

we do with supreme pleasure announce
and with deepest feeling of party satis
faction accord to the Hon. George Tur
ner, ex-TJnlted States Senator from this
state, the commendation, 'well done, good
and faithful servant.' In this city six
years ago George Turner was called from
the ranks bearing Democracy's banner
and placed 'on guard' In the highest law
making body of our country; today we aro
all pleased to say that as the first Dem
ocratic Senator from our state his serv
ices were performed along such a high
line of statesmanship as equally to shed
luster, honor and renown upon our party,
andto strengthen popular government, by
having proven himself worthy of that
high title, 'true representative of the peo
ple.' "Be It further resolved, That if In the
wisdom of our party associates In State
Convention, to be assembled In this city
May 5 next, they should desire to present
the name of the Hon. George Turner as
a suitable candidate to our National Con

Seattle Saloon Licenses Will First
Be Passed on by the Chief.
SEATTLE. Wash., April 13. (Special.)
The approval of tho Chief of Police will
have to bo obtained In the future before
new llauor licenses or renewals of old
permits will bo granted by the present
City Council. The entire saloon problem
has been turned' over to tho department
by the Council committee on license and
The object of this chango Is to enablo
tho Police Department . to keep a close
check upon the saloons In the restricted
district. Heretofore saloonmen have been
able to laugh at officers when they sought
to compel proprietors or bartenders to
aid them in looking up criminals or in
vestlgationg reports of robberies com
mitted In tho resorts. The Police De
partment might threaten, but little actual
authority was vested In tho officers.
Tho crusade begun by Chief of Police
Thomas Delaney, under the Instructions
of Mayor Balllnger, Is, responsible for
tho new Council's position. Delaney has
already commenced holding a close rein
on the saloons of the restricted district
and with the authority to block a re
newal of license he will have the saloon
men completely under his control.
BACK OF HEAD BLOWN OFF.
Evident Suicide of an Old Resident
of Benton County.
CORVALLIS, Or., April 13. (Special.)
R. M. McConnell, formerly of Albany, but
for a dozen years past a well-known res
ident of King's Valley, was fatally shot
today In what Is supposed to have been a
case of suicide. At 1 o'clock this after
noon he and two young men sat on tho
porch of his residence. He asked thorn
to water his horses and they went to tho
barn for the purpose. Then without a word
to his wife, who also was on tho porch,
he entered the house.
The report of a gunshot a moment later
brought Mrs. McConnell to the scene. Mc
Connell was found dead in his room with
the back of his head shot off. The muzzle
of tho gun had apparently been placed
close to his bead behind the ear. An In
quest is to be held tomorrow.
McConnell had been In bad health for a
couple of years, and It is supposed hero
that he determined to make away with
himself. He was about CO years of age,
and had no children.

TICKETS POR ST. LOTJIS FAIR.
Railroads Soon to Fix Terms-Heavy
Travel From Coast Likely.
Ticket agents are now discussing tho
conditions on which excursion tickets
from the Pacific Coast to tho St Louis
Fair are to bo sold, as that question is
to be settled at a meeting of the Trans
continental Passenger Association to be
held at Santa Barbara, Cal., on April 19.
The points to bo decided are the dates
of sale, the stop-over privilege and the re
There Is a difference of opinion as to
the dates of sale, the California men fa
voring three consecutive days In each
month on which tickets should bo sold,
while those of tho North seem to prefer
fixing three days In each month, ten days
apart, as suiting tho convenience of tho
largest number of people! The California
men have already fixed three consecutive
days in this month, but It Is declared that
the association alone has authority to fix
dates, and that their action cannot stand
unless It Is approved by the meeting at
Santa Barbara. California desires to havo
tho dates set to agree with tho traffic
to the Methodist Quadrennial Conference
to bo held at Los Angeles In May. Oth
ers desire to have the dates In different
months varied to suit the travel to other
The question of stop-overs also affects
the selling dates. It Is -proposed to allow
stop-overs extending the length of tho
trip eastward to ton days and to fix the
return limit at 90 days. If the selling
days arc too far ahead of tho opening of
the Exposition, tho excursion rate would
be open to abuse by men who wished to
mako trips to near-by points before go
ing to St. Louis. For this reason the
northern roads object to April 13, 14 and
15, tho dates chosen by California, and
prefer to have one day of sale toward the
end of April, allowing just time to reach
St. Louis by the day of dedication, April
SO. It may bo decided to fix tho days In
Juno to allow for tho rush which Is likely
to occur after the closing of tho schools
for the vacation.
Thero has been such a volume of In
quiry about these questions at the local
railroad offices as to indicate that thero
will be a very heavy travel to SL Louis
and that it will begin early In the sea
son before the weather In St. Louis be
comes oppressively, hot. Conditions are
much more favorable to heavy travel this
year than they were during the Chicago
Fair, ten years ago. In that year the
panto set in very soon after the opening
of the Fair, and many people were kept
at home by anxiety about their business
affairs, while others felt the pinch In tho
money market so keenly that they had
not means to go. This year prosperity is
universal and the reaction from the busi
ness expansion of the last few years Is
too slight to have any appreciable- effect
on travel to the Fair.
