LONDON', June 22. The American in

championship, International matches
and other events in -which they are en

among the English, continental and colo
nel cracks. The games in which the
Americans are playing at the Queen's
Club are attracting much attention, al
most entirely drawing off the galleries
from other matches.
Favored with perfect tennis weather,
the Queen's Club has been well patronised
by fashionable society since the opening
of the tournament, notwithstanding the
counter-attraction of Ascot week. The
service and net play of the Americans
seem to be a revelation to the English
players. This has been particularly no
ticeable in the doubles, in which Beals C.
"Wright and Holcomb "Ward completely
dazed their opponents with their in-play

cial.) That Morley realires the import
ance of having a good pitching staff It
he hopes to capture the bunting this year

young fellow named Tosler have been
signed, and will appear in an Angel uni
form very soon. Both are from the de
funct Pacific National League, which dis

made good in faster company. Both play
ers were highly recommended to Morley
by Charley Reilly.
At present only Goodwin, , Baum and
Ray make up the staff, on whom he much
depends. As a result of an injury to his
hand in the opening game of the series

Joseph B. Maccabe Here to Invito
Northwest to Join.
Joseph B. Maccabe. president of the
Amateur Athletic Union, arrived In Port
land yesterday morning In the course of
a long Journey, during which he hopes
to reorganize the entire organization and
make It an even more powerful organiza
tion than at present. He hopes, particu
larly to organize the Pacific Northwest
and promises to father Its interests with
the National body. He has already won
many friends and says that the North
west association to be organized, prob
ably today, will be known as Maccabe's
baby." and that It need not fear for lack
The only hitch In the organization of
the Amateur Athletic Union In this por
tion of the country is the community of
interests between the Northwest and
British Columbia and the impossibility
of both belonging to the same general or
ganization. The athletic clubs of the
Northwest will probably form a strong
organization under the Amateur Athletic
Union. Mr. Maccabe was entertained
by the Multnomah Club at a dinner at the
Commercial Club last night.

New Washington Manager Changes
Programme at University.
SEATTLE, Wash., June 22. SpeciaL
Loren D. Grinstead, of Spokane, was cho
sen graduate manager of athletics at the
University of Washington for the ensuing
year, at a special meeting of the board of
control of that Institution, held today,
and plans were made to have the new offi
cer devote his entire time to the work,
increasing tho salary from WQ to 31000.
The general manager, under the new ar
rangement, will have entire supervision
over all student enterprises.
Grinstead was graduated from the law
department of the university during the
present month, and has been baseball
manager during the past year. In which
office he has roado the most creditable
record that has been made at the Institu
tion in years. He is a veteran of the
Philippine War, having served through
the entire campaign with the First Wash
ington Volunteers. He received his sec
ondary education In the public schools of
Spokane, and was graduated from the
Cheney Normal School In 1S02.
The State Universities of Oregon and
Washington are, in the opinion of Grin
stead, destined to be the two great col
leges of the Northwest, and ever since
he has been connected with athletics at
the university he has insisted that tho
two institutions should hold their main
Intercollegiate relations with each other.
He proposes to try and arrange for an
annual game between the two universities'
in the City of Portland late in October
and a return game between the two in
Seattle on Thanksgiving day.
Grinstead has gone to Spokane, and
while In that city will attempt to arrange
for an annual game with the University
of Idaho, to be played in Spokane In No
vember. This is a radical departure from
tho programme pursued at the Washing
ten University in the past, which has con
sisted in an attempt to butt into relations
with the California universities, at the
expense of Intercollegiate relations with
the colleges of the Northwest.

Two Days in Portland for Con
ARRIVAL IS FRIDAY MORNING
Delegation for the Oregon Metropolis
Meets Members of the Party in
eastern Oregon and Visits
the Malheur Project.
KAMELA. Or.. June 22. (Special.) Tho
Congressional Irrigation party,' which has
been making a siudy of Irrigation condi
tions and development all over the West,
sft here this afternoon for Portland,
where two days will be spent taking in
the Exposition and seeing the city.
Senator Fulton, accompanied by A. H.
Devers. E. M. Ran nick and A. King Wil
son, Joined the party at Arcadia this
morning and drove with them over a
portion of the land under the Malheur
project. At the conclusion of the drive
Senator Fulton took up with tho members
of the committee the subject of the stay
in Portland. He said the people of Port
land were deeply disappointed to learn
that only one day was to be given to
that city, and Insisted that the Itinerary
be changed to give Portland two full
days. Senator Fulton insisted one day
was not sufficient time In which to see
Portland and the Fair.
Finally the committee agreed to give
two days to Portland If Representative
Jones would consent to cut out either
the visit to Tacoma and Seattle or a day
In Eastern Washington. This Mr. Jones
flatly refused to do, but when that sug
gestion was made, he Joined with Sena
tor Fulton In urging that an additional
day be given Portland, and that the re
malnlhg stops on the Itinerary be moved
forward one day. There was no objec
tion to this, but In the end Senator Ful
ton's Insistence carried the day, and the
committee accepted his plan.
As a result Congressmen will arrive 'in
Portland Friday morning at 7:15 and will
remain until Saturday night at 11:45.
Sunday morning will be spent In Tacoma.
At 11 o'clock the party will run to Seattle
by trolley and spend the afternoon until
4 o'clock in that city. A special train
arranged by Senator Ankeny will carry
the party to North Yakima and Spokane
on Monday and three hours being given to
the Yakima Valley, about as much time
that evening to Spokane.
The irrigation party as now made up
will include Senator Fulton. Representa
tives Mondell, of Wyoming; Jones of
Washington, and wife; Reeder of Kan
sas, and wife; Cooper of Pennsylvania,
and wife; F. H. Newell, chief of the Re

SERPENT - EATING SNAKE
Venomous Reptile Attacks Man or
Axnrlta Bazar Patrlka.
A few days ago a serpent-eating snake
or king of serpents (Ophiophagus elaps).
was found swimming In the water of the
Royal Lakes at Rangoon and was killed
before it could endanger the safety of the
people sculling on the lakes.
It Is among the most interesting of our
venomous snakes, and the only really ag
gressive member of the ophidians, readily
attacking any man or animal that hap
pens Its way. The female is especially Ir
ritable during the season of modification,
and as the adult snake attains a length
of from 12 to 15 feet. Is superlatively swift
and active, and possesses a poison fang
three Inches In length and charged with
a very powerful venom. It will be ad
mitted that Ophiophagus elaps. nala
bungarus or serpentlvore, as it is also
called, is a foe that had better be avoided.
While being neither an arboreal nor a
water snake, the Ophiophagus elaps
climbs trees with, facility and takes to
water readily, swimming with great ease
and skilh Its poison is as deadly In its
effect as that of the lesser hooded snake
(the Ophiophagus elaps also carries a
hood) the cobra; but It is believed that
the action of the venom Is not quite so
The shortest period within which It
proved fatal to a fowl was 14 minutes,
while a dog expired in two hours and 18
minutes. Nicholson relates an account of
an elephant which succumbed to a bite
In three hours.
A COSTLY SMOKE.
Cigars That Are Sold for $5 Each.
Who Buy Them?
Five dollars for a cigar! And if you
bought a hundred of them you would have
to pay JoOO. with no discount off for cash.
"No, we don't sell many of them." said
a clerk to a curious customer. "Some
times a sporty looking Individual, evi
dently from out of town, comes In here
and wants 'the best cigar in the shop.
He means the most expensive, of course,
and the $3 cigar is shown him. This Is
the way we get rid of most of them. Of
course, they are worth J5 If you don't
care for expense.
"They are all Havana, including the
wrapper. That is what makes them cost
so much. The cigars are five times as
large as the ordinary one3, and it Is ex
tremely difficult to get a leaf of Havana
large enough for a wrapper. In 1Q0O
'hands of tobacco we won't find one leaf
of the requisite size and quality.
"The last one we sold was two weeks
ago. A boy of the messenger type came
in here and sidled up to the counter.
" 'Gimme a fi dollar cigar,' he de
manded. " 'Run along-, I said.
"Bjt the way of answer he threw down a
$5 bill on the counter and repeated his
request. I gave the cigar to him and he
went out. I suppose someone must have
sent him for It possibly a cigar manu
facturer, who wanted to keep his identity
Elopements a Specialty.
James Whitcomb Riley says that the
most amusing "character" that ever
came within his personal observation
was a Squire Roberts, of Lapeer, Mich.
Although the squire was, according to
the letter-heads on his stationery, a
Justice of the peace, he made addi
tional claims to fame in that he ad
vertised himself as "the original and
only exclusively matrimonial. Gretna
Green, magistrate." Also, the squire
announced on ''his stationery that his
office was in the First National Bank
Building, "or wherever most conve
nient to swains," and he made the fur
ther assertion that "A fine line of high
grade bridesmaids and groomsmen"
were "constantly on hand to assist at
the services." Mr. Riley adds that the
following? were also selections from the
remarkable letter-head circulated by
"Marriage solemnized promptly, ac
curately, and eloquently. Plain cere
mony, lesal fee. Elopements a spec
ialty." A Story for Lawyers.
The Hon. James Ml Beck, of Phila
delphia, tells a story of a young: bar
rlster who had been working- very hard
for a couple of months on a bank-
burglary case. The evidence was greatly
against his client and a verdict of
guilty was rendered. The youn lawyer
appealed and the case was taken to a
nlgher court, -which reaffirmed 'the de
cision of the lower one. He had done
everything; In his power to keep his
man. out of Jail, but was unsuccessfuL
He then put In a bill for $500. which
ha knew the convicted man could pay.
and he deemed it a fair amount for hla
efforts. The burglar kicked and fumed
and refused to pay. The younp lawyer
then went to his father, who was a
member of the bar. and Inquired if his
father thought 5500 was too uch to
charge. After a few moments delibera
tion his father said: "Yes, my son, I
think he could have been convicted for
