ASKED DANE TO QUIT
vBritt's Condition for Fight
BILLY JJQLAN MAKES CHARGE
Manager of the Aspirant Says Willie
Britt Came Out With a Cold
Blooded Demand That
His Brother Win.
SAN FRANCISCO, CaL. March 2L
(Special.) Billy Nolan, Battling Nelson's
manager, today made a statement -which
will set the pugilistic -world afilre, as it
casts a cloud upon .Jhe squareness and
fighting ability of Jimmy Britt, leather
weight and lightweight champion.
Nolan says that it is not because Britt
wishes to fight for the international cham
pionship that, he is sidestepping Nelson,
but simply because the latter refuses to
lay down to him. Nolan does not beat
around the bush, but comes right out
with the statement that Britt attempted
to frame a match up so that Jimmy could
not lose. In other -words. Nelson -was to
quit and Britt -was to be hailed as un
conquerable champion. When Nelson ab
solutely refused to be party to any such
crooked scheme Britt declined to post any
forfeits or sign articles for a match.
"It is not a bonus mat is standing in
the way of tho Nelson-Britt fight," said
Nolan, "but it is for no other reason
than that the Battling Dane declines to
lay down to Britt. Before forfeits -were
posted and prior to the terms of agree
ment being talked over, "Willie Britt, act
ing for his brother, came to me and said:
" "You know. Billy, this match -will
have to he fixed up for us before -we sign
anv articles. Jimmy can'.t afford to take
any chances, and Nelson -will have to
agree to quite or else there will not be
any fight as far as the Brltts are. con
cerned. "This line of talk staggered me, and I
told Willie that there -would be no such
arrangement entered into as long as I
managed Nelson, and if Britt -wanted to
fight Nelson he would have to go in and
win or lose on his merits. As soon as
Britt saw that he could not induce us
to cook the fight up so that no 'Britt
gravy' would be spilled, they refused to
post forfeits, and the International match
with Jabez White began to assume a
"If Jimmy Britt wants to show the
Vpublic that he is a bona fide champion
lot him come forward and agree to fight
Nplson on the sou are. We do not "want
any the best of it: all -we ask for is an
even break, as both Nelson and myself
feel positive that Britt would not last 20
rounds in the next fight, provided the
referee allowed the men to fight strictly
according to rules."
Nelson has added Jo tho charges of his
manager. They have set local sporting
circles aflame. Britt has entered a gen
eral denial, but sticks to his plan to meet
White.- It is considered here that the
only answer to Nolan's charges can be
an agreement to fight.

What the Press Agents Say.
"The Moonshiner's Daughter."
There are probably a great number of
people -who have read of the moonshin
ers, but have never seen one and only
Icnow of him In the abstract. There Is
now an opportunity to see the moonshiner
as he really Is, at the Empire Theater,
where ' a sensational melodrama entitled
"The Moonshiner's Daughter" is now be
ing played. Two large audiences greeted
the play . Sunday afternoon and evening
and. Judging by the manner in -which
the company and play "were received, the
engagement ought to be a highly success
ful one. The-piece Is booked for the en-
"Thelma" at the Columbia.

the Columbia Stock Company's fare

admirers of this splendid company are
openly expressing their sincere regret
at the loss Portland will sustain when
it is gone. The last performance of
"Thelma" Sunday night. Matinee Sat
urday and Sunday.
Harry Beresford Coming.
That genuine comedy, "Our New Man,"
from the prolific pen of Charles T. Vin
cent, who is responsible for many laugh
producers, will be seen at the Marquam
Grand Theater next Monday evnlng.
March 27. with Harry Beresford as the
star of the performance. We are told
that he is a comedian of quiet methods,
of an oddly grotesque personality and to
possess the happy faculty of telling his
lines pantomimlcally as comprehensively
as if he spoke them. This Vincent play
Is a comedy farce pure and simple, and
delightfully diversified with many com
plications of a ludicrous and mirth-provoking
nature. It will be costumed most
excellently and cast with a company of
players that will do full Justice to its
exhilarating lines. t Advanced sale will
open next Friday morning.
Pollard Juveniles Coming.
The famous Pollard Juvenile Opera
Company, with a number of new children,
together with Daphne and several of the
old favorites, will berin an engagement

Froslnl at the Star.
Froslni. the headllner at the Star The
ater, is a musical genius who makes mel
ody flow from an accord eon. This, talent
ed man, late of the Conservator' of Mu
sic, Milan, raises this humble Instrument
to the dignity of a sonorous pipe organ.
To hear him play the overture from "The
Poet and the Peasant" is a delight to tho
critical jnurfc-lover as well as those whose
ears are trained only to lovo melody. All
the other acta are of the highest class.
JAPAN BUYS FLOUR
Importers Anticipate Advance
MANY INQUIRIES RECEIVED
Orders Are for April and May De
liveryPrices Still an Obstacle
to Heavy Trading Gale at
Mouth of Columbia.
Shipping men look for a good increase
In flour exports to Japan ih the next two
months. A number of large orders have
been received In the past few days for
April and May delivery and from the in
quiries at hand It is believed that the
buying for several weeks will be heavy.
The revival in tho demand is due to the
advance in the Japanese tariff -which will
go Into effect on July L The advance is
understood here to be 15 cents gold per
barrel, and It Is to get In under It that
the importers of Yokohama and Kobe
have begun placing their orders in this
city. The last time the Japanese govern
ment advanced the duty on flour they put
it up 17 certs a barrel and tho export
business swelled to such large proportions
that the steamship company was hardly
able to take care of the offerings.
The movement is not expected to be so
heavy this time, but it will certainly as
sure full cargoes for the Portland line,
inasmuch as the steamers have been car-
rylng out an average of 60,000 barrels
on each trip during what was considered
the dull season.
A large proportion of tho flour shipped
westward of late has gone to Hong Kong,
the Japanese buying being of a hand-to-mouth
character. The backwardness of
the Japanese has been due in part to the
uncertainty as to the length of the war,
but more on account of the 'difference of
opinion as to values. It Is conceded that
if the Portland manufacturers would name
a price CO cents under their present quo
tations, the buying would be enormous.
Such a low price, however, 4s out of the
question with -wheat held at a high level,
a fair Eastern demand on and stocks in
this country very much reduced. Besides
this, .the Japanese are not likely to raise
their offers with a big American crop
In sight and lower prices for wheat sure
to comswlth the opening of the new
season. They are paying now all their
trade will stand, and therefore are buy
ing only to fill Immediate needs. Even
the slight tariff advance, the Importers
say. will check much of the consumption
on, the other side.
Should the war be brought to an end
soon, things would take on a different
aspect. Stocks of flour are not heavy
either In Hong Kong or the Japanese
ports, and the buying orders that would
follow the cessation of hostilities would
swamp the millers on this Coast and make
an Increase in the steamship fleets
COMES WITHOUT PILOT ABOARD
Channel Course Is Signalled to Ara
bla From Tug Wallula.
ASTORIA. Or.. March 2L (Special.)
The tierman steamship Arabia arrived in
today, 20 days from Yokohama, with
full cargo of Oriental merchandise. She
arrived off the mouth of the river yester
day, but was unable to cross in owing
to the rough bar. This morning the tug
Wallula could not cross out to put a
pilot on board the Arabia, but by signal
ing she directed the steamship along the
course of the channel while the latter
was coming In.
Captain Melzenthln, of the Arabia, re
ports an uneventful passage across the
Pacinc, except that unusually heavy
weather was encountered during the past
three days. He saw no warships, but
while at Yokohama saw 9 vessels that
had "been captured by the Japanese for
carrying contraband goods.
Roughest Weather of the Winter.
ASTORIA, Or., March 2L (Special.)
Captain Reed, of the tug Wallula, says
the bar was rougher today than It has
been any time this Winter. The wind

were frequent squalls, sufficient to raise
a nasty sea. The steamer Whlttler. with
the oil barge Santa Paula In tow, is out
side and there Is little hope of her being
able to cross in tomorrow.

be made to do so by Irritating and In

lack, and. unless the deficiency of pepsin,

Departure of United States Marshal
Causes Speculation That He Went
South' to Make His Peace
SAX FRAXCISCO. March 2L (Special.)
Francis J. Heney. the United States
Attorney of Oregon, is at present in San
Francisco, as is United States Marshal
W. F. Matthews, of the same state. Their
presence here at the same time has re
vived the report that Matthews is to be
removed and that Heney is working to
that end. Heney, however, when seen to
night, stated that he has made no move
to bring about the dismissal of Matthews.
"I am not directly Interested in this
matter," said Heney, "and I can only say
that If Matthews is to be removed it is
not at my instance. There have been
certain elements at work to oust him, but
how far they have succeeded I do not
W. F. Matthews and his deputy, J. A.
Wilson, left Portland the middle of last
week with a party of Chinamen ordered
to be deported by the Federal Court. Mr.
Wilson is expected to return to the city
today or tomorrow, but the Marshal Is
not expected until the first of the week.
When it was learned that Mr. Matthews
had made his trip to San Francisco co
Incident with the arrival there of F. J.
Heney, It was rumored that he was go
ing with the view of meeting the District
Attorned and establishing peace between
the two offices if possible.
Washington dispatches would indicate
that an agreement had been arrived at be
tween the President and the Department
of Justice to the effect that Mr. Matthews
tenure of office depended upon the will
of the District Attorney. It Is said that
the Marshal had done things, or had not
done them, which had caused friction be
tween himself and Mr. Heney. It was re
ported that the political activity of the
Marshal and his affiliation with many of
the prominent men under Indictment was
looked at with unfriendly eyes in view of
the fact that he had to take so prominent
a part in the institution of court proceed
ings in June.
These and other things, it is said, led
to an uncertain condition of peacefulness
between the two Government officials,
the outcome of which was the visit of the
District Attorney, in company with the
Attorney-General, to the President, and
the tacit promise of the latter that should
any circumstances in the conduct of the
Marshal's office lead to the suspicion that
.Matthews' heart was not in the prose
cution of the land-fraud cases then his
head should fall at the simple request of
Heney, as that of John Hall had done
All these things have taken place while
Mr. Heney was in the East, and now that
he has returned to his home at San Fran
cisco prior to the resumption of his In
vestigations In Portland, it has been, sup

necessity of escorting the Chinamen to

X spent twenty years In experimenting be
fore I felt satisfied that I bad a certain
remedy for this dread disease a remedy
which would not only clean out the poison,
but one which would stop its formation.
The secret lay in a wonderful chemical X
found In Germany. When I found this
chemical I knew that I could make a rheu
matic cure that would be practically cer
tain. But even then, before- I made an
announcement before I 'was willing to put
my name on it I made mora than 2000
tests! And my failures were but 2 per cent.
This German chemical Is not the only in
gredient I use in Dr. Snoop's Rheumatic Cure
but it made the remedy possible made
possible an achievement which. I doubt not.
could have been made in no other way.
This chemical was very expensive. The
duty. too. was high. In all it -cost me $4.90
per pound. But what is $4.00 per pound for
a real remedy for the world's most painful
disease? for a real relief from the great
est torture human beings know?
I don.t mean that Dr. Shoop'a Rheumatic
Cure can turn bony joints into flesh again
that is impossible. But it will drive from
the blood the poison that causes pain and
swelling, and then that is the end of tho
pain and swelling the end of the suffer
