The dispatch from Oakland in which Pete Lohman expresses his Intention of buying Into the. Portland baseball club, and a rumor to the effect that next week's series between Portland anad Ta coma. scheduled at Tacoma. would be played at Spokane, gave the local fans plenty to talk about yesterday. Regarding the transfer of the games scheduled at Tacoma to Spokane, It socma that the rumor arose from the recent visit of C. H. Williams, the Spokane baseball magnate, who was in Portland for a few days recently. The report in circulation is to the effect that Mr. Will lams has offered a certain sum of money, said to be $2500. to the two Coast League clubs to play next week's series in Spo kane. Mike Fisher is said to favor the transfer, and Williams' visit to Portland was principally to gain the consent of the local parties. Just how much .of tho story is true, so far as the local end is concerned, is impossible to learn, for tho local magnates are noncommittal on tho subject. The evident object of the Spokane mag nate is to ultimately secure the Tacoma franchise for the Falls City, and the ob ject in securing the transfer of this series is to demonstrate the paying qualities of that town. As to the Lohman rumor. Judge Mc Credle aHd Secretary Ely, together with other of tho local magnates, are united in their denial of the report. All. 1 A. C.

New York won SYSONBY NOT IN THE RACE Interest In Brighton Handicap Is Spoiled by His Absence. NEW YORK. July 7. Sysonby, the great Keen 3-year-old, hailed as the champion of the year. Is not carded to start tomorrow in the Brighton, the rich est of all ages handicaps run in America. His absence is a source of keen disap pointment to the army of racegoers. Art ful and Ort Wells have been looked on as the horses most likely to wrest away from Sysonby his fast accumulating lau rels. Beldame, whose glory has been somewhat diminished by her recent de feat along- with Delhi in the mile, won by Ort Wells, is also named to go in tho handicap tomorrow. This historic handicap, with a guaran teed value of J25.000, tho winner to take not less than $22,000. has been contested for by the very best horses the American turf has known. As among Artful. Ort Wells and Beldame, there Is a wldo di vergence of opinion as to relative merits. and it will be difficult to forecast the public favorite until the track conditions tomorrow are known.

Multnomah leads In the P. N. A. cham pionship games, tho first seven events of which took place on the Exposition stadium yesterday afternoon. Athlotes from all parts of the Northwest com peted for points, and at tho close of the day the representatives of the Multnomah Club had piled up 29 tallies, against 23 for Seattle nnd 1 for the Brockton Point Athletic Club. Interesting features of yesterday's meet were the quarter, the broad Jump and the 56-pound weight. The latter event Is not Included In collegiate meets, and hence has not been seen on local fields for some time. McDonald of Seattlo broke the Northwest record by tossing the weight out 27 feet 9i inches. The 440-yard dash was run In the re markably quick time of 50 3-5, Williams and Grecnhaw making a very close fln- ish at the tape. The hundred was not ! run as fast as expected, due to the fact that Smlthson. who makes the distance In 10 fiat, had a sprained tendon, and could not do himself Justice. His run ning mate, Williams, took first at 10 2-5. The weather was ideal, and the track In very good condition. The remaining eight events will bo pulled oft thlr after noon on the stadium, commencing at 3 o'clock. Summary of Events. Following is the summary of yester day's events 100-yard dash WIlHams, M. A.

N. G. S.. New York, and the West minster Yoluntcers yesterday for the Sir Vincent Shield Increased the Interest In todays' shooting, bringing out even a larger gallery than yesterday. On the whole, the breeze was very light, but the sun was much stronger and the glare In their faces Interfered with tho marksmen. The heat was oppressive. The morning's trains brought out a number of American and British military men. and there was quite a gathering of former members of the Seventh, who are now visiting England. The Americans started badly, Meyer missing twice nnd Short once. The vis itors had some trouble with the targets, two of which had to be shifted. The Westminsters shot more evenly. The to tals at JO-yard range were Westminsters, 359; Americans, SSI.

I offer the following contribution to the ever-recurrent discussion relative to the Ne halem beeswax, or ozocerite, or whatever U may be. If the Information I give Is not new to those Interested In the subject, I apologize for this needless recrudescence. I have in my possession a narrative en titled. "A true report of the gainful, pros perous and speedy voyage to Java In the East Indies performed by a fleet of eight ships of Amsterdam, which set forth from Texell In Holland the first of Male. 150S. stllo novo, whereof foure returned agalno the 19 of July, anno 1599. in less than 15 months, tii aOiAr Xouxo went forward from Java for the Moluccas,' pr (no date given), and argd olgne of the tv yard."' Five Island of Mai scene of "Paul out human lnll days, and a bl they found, lr "foules twice as b: extinct dodo. This vl 7outaliTJ following passage: "Her OjTTj founde aiso. wniter man any or .yrs. lyinsr the strande. bleached (as It Is like), bv sunne: and In some of this vaxe there wcl Arabian letters or characters printed: wherbi by It Is probable that some Arabian shil might bee cast away thereabout, out ol which the said waxe might be driuen on land." It thus appears that Oregon has not a monopoly of tho legend or hypothesis of a beeswax-laden ship. Without any disposition to dogmatize and without suggesting any explanatory details, and at a risk of running counter to dearly cherished theories of friends. I venture to express my belief that the Nehalem bees wax ship Is as mythical as the Flying Dutch man; that the product in question Is of mineral origin and thus more wonderful and more Interesting to the lover of nature than any mere wreckage of beeswax could be; that Its mysterious markings are no more the handiwork of man than the famil iar strintlons resulting from the Ice-sheet of the glacial period; and that the wick less candle of which we have heard so much "but that Is another story."
