Yes, about 2000 fans cursed the street
railroad company, said torrid things about
the sioney changers at the Vaughn-street
grounds ticket office, encouraged the
email boys to throw mud and sticks at
Umpire Klopf and saw Captain Dillon's
ball-tossers hand McCredie's Giants -their
sixth coating of varnish.
Truly this was a $ad, sad opening of
the season for the Giants. Every faith
ful in town that could sneak away from
business was on hand, and they fully ex
pected to see the locals win the opening
game In a canter. But they hadn't count
ed on the hoodoo. It made its first ap
pearance before the parade. In fact, there
was only a semblance of a parade, for it
wan a thing without head or tall, and
without the- host There was a band, the
Los Angeles players, some 15 or 30 in the
epark wagons, but Manager . McCredie
and his Giants might just as well have
been in Oakland, for they were anchored
at the ball grounds and o juice in the
rollies to bring them to town. Even the
someone. If there was somebody in charge
of the details, never thought of sending
one of the automobiles for the Portland
players. The thought perhaps never oc
curred to him that they were necessary
to the parade. Perhaps they weren't.
Hoodoo Not Dead.
Manager McCredic did a great thing
when he cleaned up all of the old players.
He seems to have stopped short, for he
failed to wipe out of existence the hoo
doo, the jinks, or that wretched god of
misfortune. This black bird of ill omen
Hew over the parade. It flapped Its wings
and fooey away went the electric power.
Then it took a Journey to the ball grounds
and perched on the Giants' banner until
it was time for "curtains."
Of the game itself there is little to tell.
Bill Esslck was touched up lor a two
hagger and two singles In the first Inning,
and they were good for a brace of tal
lies. In the second two Infield mlscues
gave the Loo Loos another run. This
made three and all they could get, for
Esslck settled down and pitched a nice
game. It was more than enough to win.
lor the Giants were as so many Infants
in the hands of Pitcher Goodwin, who
twirled for the Southerners. He held the
locals down to three widely scattered hits.
This' inability to hit Goodwin, the calling
of Van Buren out at the plate when
Eager failed to touch him, a thing which
Eager himself admits, .tells why McCre
die's men failed to score. Klopf didn't
hand us anything he could help. Van
Buren made a brilliant catch In the eighth
that saved another run, and Schafly,
Mitchell and Runkle took part in a light
ning double play. Atz also stopped trou
ble) by backing up a throw to second.
Schlafiy stopped the ball and Atz picked
it up and made the put out. Bert Jones
was to have pitched, but he failed to
This makes 35 innings without a score.
It ought to be a record.
Umpire Klopf, Just before . the. game,
read a telegram from President Bert to
Captain Dillon, suspending Tim Flood.
Flood was suspended- for taking a kick
at Umpire Ferrine'at Xios Angeles last

3rcCrcdic Releases Players.
Manager McCredie unsheathed his prun
ing knife yesterday morning and released
Pitcher Jimmy St. Vraln. First Base
man Clark and Catcher Swindells. The
arrival of young Mitchell from Chipago
was the cause of the release of Clark.
McCredie only tried St. Vraln twice,
but in both games he was unsteady,
and as McCredie had more pitchers
than he could use, he 'turned St. Vraln
loose. Swindells was also tried in two
games, once at Los Angeles, where he
was practically responsible for the loss
of one of the two games -which the
Loo Loos captured from Portland, and
part of a game last Sunday morning
at Oakland. Swindells did not seem
to be able to get into condition. Clark,
while he played good "ball for Port
land, was weak when it came to tight

United States District Attorney Will
Go to San Francisco and
Remain There Until
The defendants in the land fraud casfa
can now rest their nerves, the attornera
their voices and the court his patience
for the remainder of the week nt least.
All of the prominent men on the indict
ment roll, with the exception of George
C. Brownell and George Sorenson, have
appeared for arraignment, and these will
face the court on Friday morning. Be
sides, there are a few of the more unim
portant defendants who have not as yet
put in an appearance, but all of them
have been notified and will be irr court
either this week or on Monday morning.
Brownell is Indicted for subornation of
perjury In having Induced two witnesses
to swear falsely before the grand Jury,
as is alleged, while Sorenson Is a co
defendant in the Mitchell case.
Mr. Heney will leave on Friday evening
for San Francisco, according to the pres
ent programme, and will remain there for
several weeks, or until near the time when
the first case Is to bo set for trial. Thla
Is supposing that the decision of Jud
Bellinger In regard to the Mitchell plea
of abatement will be ln favor of the Gov
ernment and against the quashing of the
Indictments. Should the decision of tha
court be for the defendants, however. It
would complicate matters greatly and
what would come next would be a hard
thing to predict. If the court were to
so decide It might be necessary for the
facts 'alleged In the pleas to be tried out
before a jury and ln this case oven tna
preliminary steps In the trial could not
be taken until after the jury had been
drawn, which has not been done at this
If the plea In abatement is not allowed,
then the defendants will be required to
plead at the earliest moment and th
decks will be cleared forN the battle of
the trials to come.
Dates Xbt Determined.
The date of trial in any of the cases
has not been determined upon and will
not be until the time of the completion
of the new Federal building is assured
and It Is positively known when the new
courtroom can be occupied. When that
time comes the jury pnnel will be drawn
and everything made ready for the com
mencement of the trials.
It Is thought that' the Government will
insist that the trial of the Mitchell in
dictment known as the Krlbs case, bo
set for the head of the calendar. That is
the main case against Senator Mitchell
and is regarded as conclusive .by the
Gpvernment. It Is the one In behalf, of
which the pica of abatement waa filed
and argued, and Is the one of which "the
defendants have the most fear.
It is certain on the other hand that the
defense would much rather have th con
spiracy Indictment against the Senator
tried first, as it relies to some extent
upon the testimony and evidence of Puter
and his fellow conspirators, and is for
that reason not considered so strong for
the Government. It is for this reason
that Senator Mitchell waived his rights
and pleaded not guilty, asking for an
HAS SECURED ABLE LAWYER.
.Mitchell Sure or Strong Defense
From Senator Thurston.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. April ID. Senator Mltchellmade
a wise move when he selected ex-Senator
John M. Thurston, of Nebraska, as his
counsel. That, at least, is the opinion
which prevails in Washington.
As a lawyer Senator Thurston stands
well. He la a mart of ability, he enjoys
a wide reputation, and has a long list
of successful cases to his credit. While
'he is not one of the greatest lawyers
of the country, he 13 well up on the list,
and has been quite successful in the pros
ecution of criminal as well as railroad
cases. He last came before the public
eye as attorney for Judge Charles Swayne.
of Florida, when the latter was tried be
fore the bar of the Senate on the im
peachment voted by the House. The ac
quittal of Swayne, however, was not due
so much to his defense as to the fact that
he was a Republican, and the further fact
that his case had been decided by the
Senate before it was argued.
Officials of the Interior Department,
who know Thurston, are convinced that he
will put up a strong defense for Mitchell.
"Thurston will get an acquittal if any
body can," was the opinion expressed by
an official who is deeply interested in the
land-fraud cases. "Thurston can sway a
jury as few other lawyers I have known
could do, and it's an easy bet that, if he
could get that jury off to one side for
an hour and tell them stories, buy them
drinks and get acquainted with each mem
ber individually, he would knock the Gov
ernment's case to smithereens. Of course,
he won't get the jury off to one side, but
nevertheless he will give Mr. Heney a
run for his money, and he will make the
prosecuting officers put up a mighty stiff
fight, notwithstanding they have some
very convincing evidence to submit.
Mitchell was probably' prompted by
friendship to call on Thurston to help him
out of his trouble. The two men have
been friends for a long time, and Thurs
ton Is one of the few men who remained
loyal to Mitchell after Judge Tanner con
fessed and the Government got hold of
Mitchell's famous "burn it" letter. It Is
probable he will follow out the tactics
initiated at the time Senator Mitchell was
arraigned and seek to have the indictment
set aside because of technical Irregular
ities, rather than by rebuttal of the Gov
ernment's case. This, however, is purely
WIESBADEN, April 13. "Americans
are shorter lived than Germans," was the
conclusion reached by Dr. B. Laquer. in
his paper on "Social Hygiene In the
United States,"-to the International Con
gress of Medicine, now in session here.
"Althougn more temperate in the use
of alcohol than the Germans, and work
ing an average of 10 per cent shorter
hours, the Americans are." said Drt
Laquer, "exhausted earlier in life."
The doctor gave these figures for each
