LOS ANGELES, CaL. Nov. JO. (Spe
cial.) Today was another repetition of
the past two, and this time Portland lost
by a 4-to-l score. It was all due to
Mason, who pitched a fine game and al
ways had the visitors guessing. Their
only run resulted from singles by Nadeau
and Beck, a passed ball and Murdock's
fielder's choice, that for Beck. The locals
made their first two on Bernard's hit by
the pitcher, a passed ball. Flood's sacri
fice. Smith's single, his two steals and
Cravath's single. The final two came
on Cravath's pass and steal. Chase's
single, a passed ball and Kellackey's
wild throw. A long running foul catch by
Boss was the feiture. The score:

ROWING CLUB TO REORGANIZE.
Cumbersome Corporation Will Give
Way to a-New One.
At the annual meeting of the Portland
Bowing Club, which will occur in the
Y. M. C. A, Auditorium next Monday
night, besides the election of officers, an
other Important matter will come up.
The club Is now operating under an old
charter by which stock In the corpora
tion was purchased in the way of Ini
tiation fee, no clause In the by-laws pro
viding for' the return of this stock to
the corporation when membership was
given up. so that now the stock Is scat
tered far and wide. None at all has
been Issued since 1895. A large enough
quantity of this Btock has been ob
tained so that the corporation can be
regularly dissolved at this meeting, and
when this Is done another will be organ
ized to take Its place. Under the present
law clubs of this sort can form corpora
tions without stock.
With a new corporation formed the
club will be placed on a. better business
basis, so that certain pieces of property
now held for It by trustees can be made
over to" the corporation Itself.

CHEFOO, Not. 10. Itz Mountain,
according to Chinese, 120 of whom-arrived
here today from Port Arthur, is proving
a costly obstacle to the Japanese. On tho
mornings of November 5 and C fierce as
saults on the position were made by the
Japanese, who were repulsed. During the
second assault a shell, soaring over the
other hills from Pallcbung, dropped on
Itz Mountain and demolished a mine and
the mine-controlling station and exploded
The Russians were holding the trenches
on the boundary of the mined sections.
Between COO and 700 were killed or wound
ed. The Japanese, having not reached the
place, were unhurt.
Itz Mountain owes the best part of its
strength to the peculiar topography of the
surrounding country, which prevents a di
rect artillery fire and does not enable the
Japanese to advance trenches with the
success evident elsewhere.
The Japanese advanced on it In both
Instances from behind distant hills, with
the fullest forco the ground would allow,
but in the long distances which they were
compelled to traverse in the face of ma
chine guns their ranks were melted. Both
times thejJapanese broko the wire entan

Scouts Idea of Capitulation.
ST. PETEBSBUBG, Nov. 10. The War
Office has no late advices from Port Ar
thur, and nothing is known here of the
report that General Stoessel has asked for
an armistice, but if so, it Is considered
that it must have been to bury the dead
and not in view of a capitulation. The
suggestion made by way of Toklo that
the Busslans are maltreating the wound
ed is deeply resented in military circles
here, where It Is considered that the idea
may be put out as an excuse for the like
lihood of a repetition of a massacre such
as following the taking of Port Arthur
during the Chinese-Japanese war.

in the dead of night, have men and mate
rials ready, and repair the flaws before the
committee's investigation. Mr. Siegler

night, to the Police Station, where he un
folded the plot, and asked Captain Moore,
to have an officer etop the work, should It

as the City Engineer had accepted the
sewer. Contractor Rlner had no business
on the premises.
Captain Moore detailed Officer Ogg, and
Officer Ogg descended npon the conspira
tors just as Contractor Rlner and his men
were about to lower materials in the man
hole and commence work. Officer Ogg or

until relieved at 1 o'clock this morning
by another police officer. If there are
flaws In the sewer the .members of the
committee will now find them when they
make their visit.

AN OBJECT LESSON
In a Restaurant.
A physician puts the query: Have you
never noticed In any large restaurant at
lunch or dinner time the large number of
hearty, vigorous old men at the tables;,
men whose ages run from 69 to 8 years -
many oi mem Daid and all perhaps gray
but none of them' feeble or senile?
Perhaps the spectacle Is so common, as
to have escaped your observation or com
ment, but nevertheless it is an object les

If you will notice what these hearty old
fellows are eating, you will observe that
they are not munching bran crackers nor
gingerly picking their way thro'uik a menu
card of new-fangled health foods; on. the
contrary, they seem to prefer a juicy
roast of beef, a properly turned Join of
mutton, and even the deadly broiled lob
ster is not altogether ignored.
The point of all this i that a vigorous
old age depends upon good ,dlgeetIoa and
