LOS ANGELES. Sept. 13. (Special.)
The Loo Loos could do nothing today at
the right time with Cates, and lost a
game that was a fierce wrangle from fhe
start. Hall gave way to Goodwin In the
first of the fifth, and the kid held the
Blues down very well.
Householder's batting was the swat
feature, though Goodwin shocked the
fans with two scratches he beat out. Da
vis was very bad on decisions for both
teams, and a riot almost resulted early
in the game. Large crowds saw the
game and spent the time hooting Davis.

the general public a large share of re

Commenting upon tho fact that the men
students are drifting to the scientific and
engineering courses, while the women
studonts are nearly nil pursuing the

question whether the old-fashioned lib

Adjutant-General W. E. Flnzer and the
members of the Oregon Natidnal Guard
rifle team that recently competed in the
National shooting tournament at Sea
Girt, N. J.. are expected back from the
East today. The Oregon contingent did
not make such a bad showing among the
competitors at the shoot, for nearly all
the teams that ranked them have com
peted at the annual shoot for several
years, while this was the first trial of
the Oregon boys. The state team ranked
22d on the list when the final shoot was
concluded, and their low position was due
entirely to the poor showing of several
inen who were depended upon to average
much better than they did, for on the sec
ond day of the tourney the Oregon marks
men were 11th In rank, and dropped from

that position to where they finished be
cause of the unnerving of some members
of the team who were unable to make
anything tme a creditable score on the
final day. Considering the fact that the
Washington team, which is a more ex
perienced one than that of Oregon,
dropped from sixth place on the second
day to within a couple of places of the
Oregon contingont on the final day's
shoot, the local team's showing Is not so
The state team won high praise for its
creditable work in the skirmish competi

one Oregon man captured eighth place
among the 72 competitors. This man was

creditable score of 149 out of a possi

the Oregon team, scoring 371 during the
entire meet. Sergeant Schwarz, of Port

third with 35S.
Nearly all of the National Guard teams
In the competition had the advantage of
extensive practice on regulation rifle
ranges, which is an unknown quantity In
the work of the Orogon team, as this
state has no range at present, and the
Oregonians were at a disadvantage on
that account. The Oregon team that
competed in the shoot were as follows:

Twelve stockholders of the Tacoma base
ball club were presen't last evening at a
meeting in the Fidelity Bank. When the
meeting adjourned, according to a state

Evans, it had been unanimously agreed
that all stock should be returned to the
original stockholders. These original
stockholders are: David Evans, George
M. Schroeder and Manager Fisher. Sur
render of all outstanding Mock moans that
this trio will have complete control for
the remainder of the season, and will bear
all the losses. Stockholders stand to lose,
of course, what they paid for their stock
at the rate of $100 a share last Winter.
The stockholders, when informed that
an assessment on the stock would be
necessary In order to save the club from
financial downfall, ran over each other in
their haste to get rid of their stock. They
one and all washed their hands of club
affairs, and expressed themselves as glad
to get off so cheaply.

Albany Republicans Favor the Love
Feast Harmony Is Desired.
ALBANY, Or.. Sept. 11 (Special.)-This
morning the Albany Herald contained a
notice over the signature of Percy R.
Kelly. State Central Committeeman for
Linn County, Inviting all Republicans to
attend the "lovefeast" on October 12, for
which Chairman Frank C. Baker ha?
Issued a call. A number of prominent Re
publicans were Interviewed on the subject
of the proposed meeting, and In answer
to the questions. "Do you approve of the
Baker meeting?" "Will it accomplish the
ends for which It Is alleged to be called?"
and "Will It have any bearing on the can
didacy of aspirants for state positions?"
generally spoke favorably of the meeting.
E. D. Cuslck, banker and prominent in
Republican politics, stated that while he
hardly thought harmony could be accom
pUshed by a lovefeast. yet no harm would
likely be done by such a meeting. "There
are untried conditions coming In Oregon
politics. If the direct primary is followed
strictly the party will succeed," said Mr.
J. S. Van -Winkle, chairman of the Re
publican County Central Committee,
tersely answered: "Yes, I favor the meet,
ing, and think It will conserve harmony.
but that is problematical. It will have
no effect on prospects of candidates."
J. R. Wyatt, lawyer, stated that he
could see nothing against the proposed
meeting, and that it might possibly do
some good, but that If any effort was
made to further the interests of any can
didate, nothing but harm could result.
N. M. Newport, lawyer, answered: "Yes,
I think the meeting advisable. I hope It
will conduce to harmony, but am inclined
to be skeptical. No candidate will be
helped further than what Is accomplished
by the personal magnetism of the candi
dates that may be present.
Percy R. Kelly, lawyer and State Cen
tral Committeeman, favored the meeting
in the following terms: "I am heartily
in favor of the meeting proposed. I sin
cerely believe It to be a practical step
toward meeting conditions now confront
Ing thei Republican party in this state. :
understand it to be a recognition of the
necessity of an organization within the
party, and yet a plain, unequovlcal and
Imperative assertion and declaration that
to be effective such organization must
embrace and commend Itself to every
loyal Republican within the state. Its
the interest and good will of all those who
earnestly desire the existence and main
tenance of a Republican party and not
simply a machine, faction or ring."
G. A. Westgate. editor of the Morning

old: "I favor the meeting, think it will
do no harm and may cause harmonyN and
will have no effect on the candidacy of

active in Republican .politics in Linn

Gale S. Hill, lawyer and secretary of the
Congressional committee In the First Dis
trict, spoko like this: "I fail to see
where the proposed meeting can do any
harm, and it may possibly serve to In

I favor it. As I understand the lovefeast
is not called to further the Interests of
any candidate. It will certainly have no

NO CHANGE ON SMUTTY WHEAT
Eastern Washington Growers Score
n Victory in Grading.
TACOMA. Wash.. Sept 13. (Special.)
Official announcement was made today
by the Stat Grain Inspection Department
that there will be no change made In the
present system of grading smutty wheat,
which means that the growers of Eastern
Washington have scored another big vic
toryY61" rnlllers and the exporters of
Tacoma and Seattle. Wheat containing
smut balls will be graded as "No. 1, if
smutted." although the growers will have
to submit to the higher charges made by
the combine for "smutting" the wheat.
Regarding dirty wheat, the commission
will try a new experiment for a period
of one month, beginning October 1. dur
ing which time the department will at
tempt to fix the dockage on each car of
dirty wheat Inspected. Should the new
plan prove satisfactory after a trial of
ono month, it will be permanently adopt
ed by the board.
The only point which tho growers failed
to gain in the controversy between them
selves and the dealers was that of charges
for "smutting" wheat, the commission de
ciding that It had no authority to say
what should be charged by the buyers
tor this work. This means that the
growers will be compelled to submit to
the demands of the dealers for a charge
of from 5 to 20 cents for "smutting."
