dently handle the team In Montana. Boise
also has a fair chance of being admitted.

SAY ADVANCER IS A RINGER
Horsemen Protest Winner or Citi
zens League Purse at Milwaukee.
MILWAUKEE. Sept. 15. A sensation de
veloped at the State Fair grounds today,
when it was announced that the Citizens'
League purse of $1000. given for the 2-21
trot yesterday, would not be distributed
until the identity of the winner. Advancer,
was established beyond doubt.
The money was tied up in response to
directions from Secretary Knight, of the
Western Trotting Association, who said
that representations had been made to
him that Advancer was a "ringer." The
horse 'was entered by L N. Chase, repre
senting the Forest Park farm of Brandon,
VL, and was driven by Carpenter. Those
who say the horse waa a "ringer" declare
the animal was campaigned three or four
years ago as Major Chew and that it had
a record of 2:144.

Beat Washington by Forty-Seven
Huns at Cricket Match.
Portland waa an easy victor yesterday
"at the cricket tournament over Washing

Inning, when Portland scored 111 and
Washington 64. giving Portland a lead of
47 runs. The Washlngtons went In again
and managed to score 43 runs, but the
Portlands had not time to get another
try at the batting.
It was easy to see Portland's superior
ity In fielding, bowling and batting. As
usual, "Fatlver" Charles W. Lawrence, of
Portland, distinguished himself, for xhe
rattled up 50 with the greatest of ease,
being top scorer of the day. He batted
the Sphere about the field at will, and
never waa In better form. W. G. Smith
played brilliantly for his 14. and so did

RAILWAY PILES ARTICLES
NORTHERN PACIFIC AND GREAT
Both Roads Will Come Into Port
land From Spokane by the
OLYMPIA, Waslu. SepL 15. Special.
The Portland & Seattle Railway Com
pany, whose operations, along the Colum
bia. River have given evidence of the In
tention of the Northern Pacific at once to
construct its lines down the north bank
of the river, has filed Its articles of Incor
poration In the office of the Secretary of
State. While the articles were entered of
record today, they bear the filing mark of
August 23. .This Is at the request of the
incorporators, who submitted the articles
on the date named. The papers had been
returned for correction, and were received
back In proper shape today.
The capital stock of the company Is
placed at $5,000,000. and the trustees are:
J. C. Flanders. C. F. Adams, S. B. Unthl-
PORTLAND CRICKET CLUB
President S. L. X. Gllman.
cum, James D. Hoge and John S. Baker.
The principal purposes, as expressed in
the articles, are as follows:
"To build, or buy, own, equip or oper
ate railway, telegraph and telephone lines
extending from the City of Spokane to the
City of Seattle, in the State of Washing
ton; also extending from the said City of
Spokane to the City of Portland, State of
Oregon, and extending from the said City
of Seattle to the said City of Portland,
with such branches and extensions as the
corporation may hereafter determine to
construct or acquire. Also to acquire, use
and enjoy, upon such terms as the trus
tees may approve, the right to run trains
and conduct a transportation business
generally, upon and over any lines of rail
way constructed between the points
above described, or any part of such lines
and any extensions or branches thereof.
"To construct bridges for the use of said
corporation, and incidentally for hire to
other transportation companies, or as toll
bridges, across the Columbia River and
such othor streams as may be crossed by
the railway lines of the corporation, and
to operate ferries over the Columbia River
and other streams wherever the same
may be practicable or desirable.
"To construct, purchase, own and oper
ate steamboats, tugboats, barges and
other watr cratt on the Columbia. River
and tributary streams, and on the Pacific"
Ocean, Its bays and Inlets, and generally
to do a carrying business by water."
Now that the articles of Incorporation
have been filed and are made public, ru
mor and conjecture as to the real power
behind the new company are springing
up afresh. A prominent man who Isgen
erally .supposed to be in close touch with
the workings of the Hill railway systems
and" In the confidence of Its officials has
made some statements regarding the Port
land & Seattle Company which lead to
the belief that not only the Northern Pa
cific, but the Great, Northern as well. Is
interested, and vitally interested. In the
construction of the new" line, and will
equally profit by its completion.
This man. who, for' many reasons, did
not wish to be quoted at present, states
that from his information the Portland &
Seattle line will be constructed for the
Joint use of the two great Hill roads.
It is not intended, he says, to construct a
new line the entire distance from Seattle
to Spokane, or from Seattle to Portland,
or from Spokane to Portland. The line
from Seattle to Portland now owned by
the Northern Pacific will form part of the
triangle destined to link the three cities
of the Northwest In one chain.
From Seattle to Spokane a new line will
be built in part, so this Informant con
tends. The Great Northern line Is shorter
by more -than 70 miles than the Northern
Pacific line between the two cities. To
overcome this the Northern Pacific will. in.
the Immediate' future, build from Llnd to
Ellensburg along the survey made some
time ago. This amended line will be a
part of the triangle of the Portland &.
Between Portland and Spokane the
tracks will be new ones along a new grade
down the Columbia River. This will be
the north-bank route, arid will not only
bear Northern Pacific, but Great Northern
traffic as well.
President Howard Elliot, of the North
ern Pacific is now In the Dakotas, and Is
nearlng the Montana state Unci so It Is
said, and, according to the story told by
this man, who alleges to have the Inside
of the plans about to be carried out, he
will be on the scene In a very few days.
With the arrival of President Elliot It Is
expected that some definite announcement
will be made, but in the meantime It Is
said to come straight from the thfone
that two transcontinental lines, and not
one, will seek an entrance Into Portland.
This Is said to have come by a reason
ably direct route from the offices of the
Northern Pacific and Great Northern
roads. The construction of the Portland
& Seattle will be the realization of the
Hill dream of a Portland terminal for his
It Is not to be supposed that the dream
will -be a reality in a month, for vast
engineering obstacles and problems yet
remain to be overcome and solved. .Two
years may pass before the line Is a real
ity, but the actual start haa been made.
President Elliot's coming will make clear
the puzzle, so it is sjated.
LEWISTON MUCH INTERESTED
No Evidence That Hill and Harrl
man Arc About to Clash.
LEWISTON, Idaho, SepL 35. There Is
Intense Interest here In plans of the
Northern Pacific in its north bank route
down the Columbia and developments are
looked forward to with much favor by
the people here, realizing that It Is but
another link In that chain that will bind
Lewlston to closer communication with
Careful Inquiry here by The Oregonlan
representative fails to show the slightest
Indication' that- the threatened fight be
tween Hill and Hani man on the Colum
bia will effect the agreement reached 'be
tween the O. R. -& X. and the Northern
"Pacific for the Joint construction of the
line extending from Riparia to Lewlston
and from this point to Grangeville.
Construction forces on the'Lewistoa and
Riparia line are now being dally In
creased, while two right-of-way agents
are at work on the Grangeville branch.
It is also noted that Division Engineer
Chase, of. the O. R. & N. Co., who is
here In charge of the Lewlston-RIparla
line work, and Division Engineer Cros
well. of the Northern Pacific, who Is di
recting the work for the Grangeville line,
are In dally conference.
Engineering work on the Grangeville
branch will be completed within a. week
and shortly traffic contractors will be In
vited to look over the ground preparatory
to beginning work.
It Is said upon good authority that the
Northern Pacific had delayed Its definite
move on the Columbia until an adjust
ment had been reached on. what Is known
as the Clearwater railroad war, w4ch
adjustment consisted of an agreement for
Joint construction of the road from Ri
paria to Lewlston and Grangeville. The
news Is gladly received here, as for a
period It was feared that the north bank
development might again tie up the roads
and again delay construction of the Ri
paria and Grangeville line. .
Colonel J. R. Eddy, of Portland, who
Is connected with the O. R. & N. right-of-way
department, was an arrival here
tonight on business connected with the
adjustment of some rights of way on
