THE MORNING OREGDNIAN, TUESDAY, APRIL 19, 1904.
FIRST GAME WEDNESDAY
GOVERNOR AND MAYOR WILL
WELCOME THE BROWNS.
O'Connell Will Umpire to Fans' Content-Spectators
of First Game
Will Be Keen Critics.
"With the aid of a few railroad experts,
Ben Ely finally reached the conclusion
that it vrould he impossible for the
Browns to reach Portland In time to open
the season today, as per the schedule.
This was not all that he accomplished.
Yesterday he got busy and, if the weather
man will be good. Governor George E.
Chamberlain and Mayor George H. "WH
liams will be among the attractions at
the Vaughn-street grounds on "Wednes
day afternoon. There will be a street
parade In case the team arrives in time.
A San Francisco paper, -under date of
April 15, stated that President Bert has
selected Umpire Jack O'Connell to ofliclate
in the North. O'Connell Is well-liked in
the North and he "will be a welcome
visitor to the fans. According to the
Etories which have floated this way from
tne South, Portland fans are not a bit
anxious to have Houston come to this
neck of the woods. Ben Ely has stated
that Houston has broken it off into the
Browns on several occasions and that on
account of a couple of close decisions in
which the Browns got the worst of it,
they got off badly at Fresno.
"While the fans have been grumbling
at the Browns for being in the cellar,
everybody will be glad to see them re
turn and to give them a loyal welcome.
It will be a critical crowd, however, that
will journey out to the games, critics
willing to forgive if the team takes a
brace, but who will howl their heads off
In case the Browns continue losing.
There has been a disposition on the part
of some of tlfla fans to cuss the manage
ment and to lay all the blame on Fred
Ely. Just critics know that Ely has been
doing his best and, while they feel sore
ever the games which have been lost,
they know that no ball team on earth
can win games when almost every player
is suffering from a big slump In his bat
ting. Taking the games all through,
there is only one which really could be
called "rotten," and was a 9 to 0 affair.
The others for the most part were all
tight fits, in which luck counted against
the local team.
If the team gets out and plays good
ball and shows by its performances that
It is out to win games, all past perform
ances will be forgiven. The good old
fans here do not clamor for a pennant
winning team; they would be content If
the team was in the first division.
Itary Academy and Bishop Scott Academy
on ilultnomah field is the first game of
the Interscholastle series. As both teams
have been training hard and are equally
confident it promises to be an Interesting
Standing of the Clubs.

We can't do this always. Piano wants
have never been so generously supplied
ni w are dolnc it.now. The high char
acter of these bargains and the great
variety will probably not bo duplicated

have fallen below the best we have ever

The result has been big buying and
plenty of ready cash .for Ellers Piano

body has been happy and satisfied.
We have .accomplished what we set out
to do. We have raised the ready money
that we were In immediate need of to

But we are going to sell the remaining
new pianos that we set aside to sell for

struments, and the Identical make that
has sold over and over again right here
in Portland for 5400 and $475. Our price
now is only S0. Payments, 10 down and

The remainder of these used pianos will
be cleared out next week. They are all
In excellent condition, and are so nearly
new that their little prices astonish every
body. You can get an excellent one for
?105, and others all the way to $1S5. Pay

Carlon Not the Best Shot.
PORTLAND, Or., April -18. (To the
Sporting Editor.) In your account of the
Sunday shoots, a match between myself
and Mr. Cullison was reported. As a mat
ter of fact my match was with Dick
Carlon, who claims to be the best traj
shot on the Pacific Coast, but who Isn't.
He used his own gun, and shot the best
he knew how. I defeated him, and can
do It again. It was not Mr. Cullison, as
stated In tho paper.

New Jersey Judge Holds Plan to Dis
solve the Merger Equitable.
NEW YORK. April 18. Tho hearing In
the suit against the Northern Securities
Company, asking a restraining order
against the method of distributing of the
company's Northern Pacific holdings of
Great Northern and Northern Pacific
Railroad stocks, was begun In Jersey
City today. E. T. Nichols, secretary and
treasurer of the Northern Securities, filed
an affidavit very similar to the one filed
In Minnesota's court.
Counsel for Mr. Venner demanded the
production of the books, to which the
counsel for the Northern Securities Com
pany objected, but the argument was pro
tracted. At the conclusion of th5 arguments
Vice-Chancellor Berger dismissed the ap
plication of the Continental Securities
Company for an Injunction against tho
meeting of the stockholders of the North
ern Securities Company on April 2L The
Vice-Chancellor stated there was no
question of the right of the Northern Se
curities Company to reduce Its capital
stock, which action was conceded to be
legitimate; that no proof had been pre
sented that the proposed method of dis
tribution of the stocks would be an In
Jury to the complainant; that the de
cision of the United States Circuit Court
of Appeals and the United States Su
preme Court did not order any distribu
tion of the Northern Pacific and Great
Northern stocks, or describe any method
for their distribution, but that tho de
cree simply prevented the Northern Se
curities Company from getting any benefit
from the holding of these stocks; that
the stocks of these railroads are actual
assets of the Northern Securities Com
pany and may therefore be distributed
to stockholders, as, in the opinion of the
court, their sale in the market would be
a tremendous Injury to tho public wel
fare; and that the method adopted, and
heretofore announced, for such stock dis
tribution is perfectly fair. He said he
would have to sustain the contention of
the Northern Securities Company, and he
further remarked that any interference
on the part of the court was unwar
ranted and would work a hardship on
the stockholders of the company.
Minnesota Decision Next Week.
ST. PAUL, April IS. No decision was
handed down by the United States Cir
cuit Court in the motion of E. H. Harri
man and W. S. Pierce for leave to In
tervene in the settlement of the Northern
Securities Company's case. Judge San
born said to the Associated Press that
the decision would be given on or before
Thursday, April 2L The decision is in
course of preparation.
