The Seals took another fall out of tho Portland Stars this afternoon and their victory brought them up in second place. They had a hard time at that in beating the Giants to the flnirfh by a run. but everything camo out all right, for the Seals profited by Sweeney's bad throws in the fourth and fifth, which save them enough to go through with. Uncle was afraid that SVIllllams was" not going to weather the storm, so he stuck Jimmy Whalen in after the sixth, when Williams was bumped for three runs. It began to look very bad for the Seals then, but Whalen came to tho front Just in time. Joe Nealon put the first one over for Uncle in the fourth, when he slapped one to Sweeney, who heaved the ball into the bleachers, letting Joe come all the way around. Williams leaned up against one for three bags in the next period and when Sweeney threw Waldron's hit away, the blonde pitcher arrived. Wald ron quickly got away with a steal of second and third and Hlldo put him through "with a nice bunt that went safe. The Giants made a great rally in tho sixth, when they seemed to be able to hit everything Williams had. Schlafly beat out an infield clout, stole and scored on McHale's blngle. After this, both Sweeney and Cates rapped tout doubles, but tho batting fest ceased before 'the score was tied up. The score: PORTLAND. AB R IB PO A E Van Buren.

BAX OX FOOTBAIili SLUGGERS Harvard President Will Stop Game if Order Is Ignored. CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct 26. President Elliot, of Harvard, has determined that brutality and unnecessary roughness shall cease in football played by Harvard teams, or that football Itself shall be eliminated from the athletic curriculum of the university. At the Yale-Harvard game in the Stad ium next month, President Elliot -will sit near the side line as a critic of the play. If there is any slugging he -will recom mend to the corporation that Harvard cease playing inter-collegiate football. The corporation could undoubtedly so vote, and, football, with Harvard left out would receive a stunning, if not a knock out blow. President Elliot is no warm friend of football as played today. His reports have frequently been hostile, but he has yielded to public-opinion. In his recent resolve he was backed up .by President Roosevelt and Influential members of the faculty and corporation. PLAY WITH CHEMAWA BRAVES University o Oregon Expects to Have Lively Encounter. UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Eugene, Oct. 26. (Special.) Next Saturday the 'varsity football team will meet the strong eleven from Chemawa, on Kincald Field. The Indians did great work against Washington last week, but lost on fumbles. Their practice since that game has gone far to ssnooth "up the rough places, and make it certain that, whatever may be the outcome of Sat urday's "battle, the Chemawa braves have played a fast, scientific game. For tho 'varsity the contest will de termine whether the team -will line up for future games, as it did in California, or whether it will be necessary to make substitutions. Excepting a slight slump immediately after the return of the team from the South, the evening practices have been faster and harder than ever before. The first team squad works to gether as a unit and is in eery -way pre pared to uphold the good record of last year. Moores, eft cnd nas -ot fully re covered Xrom his injury received In the Stanford "game, and may not appear against the Indians, but will be in shape for. the succeeding games. Races at Jamaica Park.

Death or A. E. May. Aby E, May, con of Mr. and Mrs. Emanuel May, dledat the family home, 45 East Fifteenth street at 1 o'clock this morning, aged 19 years. HEARD IN THE ROTUNDAS State Printer Says His Job Is Not So Fat Government Clerks Not to Be Moved Life in India Not All Joy (QALEM people are pretty confident 3 that within a year they will be con nected with Portland by an electric road," said State Printer J. "R. -Whitney, at the Imperial Hotel, yesterday afternoon. "The same firm controls Salem and Eu gene street railways, and we are Inclined to believe It is only a matter of a short time before all of the Valley towns will be connected by an interurban railway. There are those at Salem who say they have Inside information that electric cars will be running from Portland to the Capital City within a year. "I haven't such a fat Job as some peo ple think I have," said Mr. Whitney, with a laugh, "but it is good enough for me to be after it for a second term. You may not believe it but some persons think tnat all of the $60,000 appropriated by the Legislature to cover the printing of two years goes to me. They forget that pa per and binding costs something, and that union prlrfters are not in the habit of working for nothing. If the printing should be let out by contract it would cost fully as much. If not more, than it does now. This has been proven in sev eral Instances." CCf ORTLAND is the best market for dairy products in the United States, New York City not excepted." said Dr. James Withycombe, of the Ore gon Agricultural. College, at the Imperial Hotel last night "Of course, in the East ern cities there are fancy brands of cer tain dairy products that bring higher prices, but taken on an average Portland is the best market of all. The scarcity of farm labor holds back the dairy Indus try of the state, the laboring men finding ready employment at the mines and at the mills at better wages than the farmer can afford to pay. , "Within ten years practically all tho farming land in the Willamette Valley will be worth at least $100 an acre. By up-to-date and intensive farming all the 5.000.000 acres of agricultural land in the Willamette Valley ought to yield a profit of about $30 an acre. It is destined to be a great dairy center, being peculiarly adapted for this industry. It will not be long before the large farms in the Valley will be divided into smaller tracts and the 5,000,000 acres of available land will all be under cultivation. "I made a statement last week that the Eastern Oregon farms would be con verted into a desert waste unless the farmers changed their system of farming. In certain portions of Eastern Oregon in a few instances the shifting sands have put in their appearance already where before excellent crops of wheat were growrf. At the present rate, certain lands m Morrow, Sherman and several father counties will be worthless within a score or more of years. All the farmers havo to do to prevent this condition is to plant a crop of peas every five years and plow the plants under, soas to "restock the land with organic matter. By this system tho farmers would make more money, as they now let their land He idle every other year." TyaEDFORD is dcstlneti t0 he the 'I 1 metropolis of Southern Oregon, and it has a great future in store for it," remarked Captain Leavenworth, formerly, of Portland but now of Gold Hill, at the Imperial Hotel last night "This is from a disinterested point of view, as I have no reason for boosting Medfbrd other, than that I admire the progressiveness and publlc-spirited-ness of Its business men. "Every indication points toward Medford being the biggest town of Southern Oregon. It is in the center of the Rogue River Valley, which is re nowned for the abundance and excel dence of its agricultural and horticul tural products, is surrounded by a gooj mining cuntry, and immense tracts of timber land are contiguous to It They SHIPPING IS HEAVY Seven Steamers Arrive, Ten Ships Are Chartered. BUSY DAYS ALONG DOCKS Charters Are for Wheat-Carriers to United Kingdom, and Part of the Cargoes May Go From Tacoma. Yesterday was a day full of features and Interest to local shipping circles and was a record-breaker in many re spects. Early in the morning informa tion of the charter In San Francisco of ten vessels for northern loading gave the exporters a topic of conversation, while the arrival of seven steamers and shlp3 at Astoria during the day made a record In Itself. Of the charters made in San Francisco little is known save thar the Northwest' Warehouse Company secured four and that the Portland Floring Mills and Bal four, Guthrie & Co., are also the pos sessors of additional ships. Those taken by tho Northwest Warehouse Company, are the French bark Hoche, 172S tons, 152 days from Rotterdam for Portland, the French bark Alice Marie. 1781 tons, 34 days from Hobart for Portland: the British ship St. Mungo. 1E52 tons, now at Guay mas; and the clan Graham. All of these ships will load in Portland. No definite information has been received as to tho remaining six of the chartered vessels but it is understood that some may go to tho Sound. The arrivals in the river yesterday in cluded the steamers Agincourt, Abergel dle. Eureka, Wasp and Costa Rica, the French bark IHernflttc and the five master Louis. The steamers all left up yesterday and arrived in the harbor between the hours of 1 and 5 this morning. The Vauban, a member of the grain fleet also left up yesterday and will ar rive today, and the L'Hermltto and Louis should leave Astoria before evening. The Abergeldle. direct from Japan, will load wheat for the Northwest Warehouse Company; the Agincourt with Its sulphur comes to Mitsui & Co.; the Burcka will take out wheat for Taylor, Young & Co., and the Wasp will load lumber at the Portland Lumber Co.'s mills. Owing to the large number of vessels In the harbor at present which occupy all the wharfage the Abergeldle and Agincourt have been compelled to He in the stream. The Abergeldle will go Into Irving dock on Saturday. TUGS WILL GO TO RESCUE Attempt Will Be Made to Pull Light ship Into Open Channel. At high tide today the first attempt will grow five and six tons of alfalfa to the acre without irrigation. "The Medford business men are of the. kind that make a. town grow, and the building of the Medford & Crater Lake Railroad Is an example of their determination to develop a country In which they have- the utmost faith. They are anxious to secur6 more people for their city, and newcomers are royally welcomed. They are willing to aid nex enterprises and will do anything in their power to help to develop that sec tion of the state." , CfT" HE Government clerks at Wash- 1 lngton have good, easy positions, but I look upon them as a very unfortun ate class and thoscwho have Jhad experi ence with them view them in the same light" remarked Everett Dufour, a well known attorney from Washington. D. C, at the Perkins Hotel last night Mr. Dufour makes an annual trip to the West on a hunting trip, and is en route to Brit ish Columbia, where he will try his luck with the grizzlies. "Not that the clerks are not well treated by tho Government but they have little opportunity for ad vancement and unless they are unusually intelligent, their life's wjark Is laid out before them Just the same as though it were written In a book. However, I might state that under the- present ad ministration, hard-working and Intelli gent clerks have better chances for ad vancement than ever before. "I could not advise any young man to take a Government clerkship at Wash ington,". C, unless he use it solely for a stepping stone to - something better. Many a young man has gone In the Gov ernment service full of ambition and lofty ideas, only to plod along year after year at practically the same salary. Of course anyone who has, a pull can go along very rapidly. The young men who get clerkships are paid fairly good sal aries, havo light work and short hours. They know they have a Job for life and they have no Incentive to work hard be cause they know how hard it Is to be advanced without political Influence. They drift along and the first thing they know they are old men still working as clerks, whereas If they had kept away from the Government they might have made more out of themselves. If a young man has any ambition and hopes to succeed, he had better keep away from tho Government clerkships at Washington." "W E live in India only three months, and during the other nine months we merely exist" said S. Gregory, a Calcutta business roan at the Hotel Portland last .night Mr. Gregory has ex tensive Interests in the United States and Canada, as he is a big Importer of tea, and he is Just returning to Calcutta after looking after his business on this con tinent "We have only three months of good weather, and for the rest of tho year the weather is so hot that it la almost unbearable," he continued. "In the dry seasons the thermometer fre quently registers as high as IDS degrees in the shade, but it is during tho rainy weather when we suffer the most Then the thermometer only gets up to about 90 degrees, but with the atmosphere laden with moisture the heat is simply terrible. "No true Englishman looks upon India as his home, and we are only there tem porarily, striving to lay a little money aside so that we can go back to the good, old British Isles to spend the re mainder of our days. Practically all of the Britishers I know in India expect to die in England. We long to get back to the 'islands' as much as the Ameri cans abroad long to get back to the States. "When young men get started In bus iness in the India cities they go ahead in rapid strides and make money very fast This is due to the fact that the older Englishmen are constantly " drop, ping out having accumulated enough to return to their native homes. You rare ly ever find an aged Britisher in business in Calcutta, as they turn their backs to India long before they get old and feeble." bo made to take Columbia River Light ship No. 50 out of Baker's Bay into the open channel. Since being pulled off the beach, where she stranded, the lightship has been lying at the Fort Canby wharf awaiting the high tides. The bar lying between Baker's Bay and the channel of the river has only a depth of two feet at low wa.tr. Today's tide will be 9 feet 2 inches, and as the lightship has been lightened to a draft of "ten feet it is thought there will be no difficulty in free ing the vessel.. Should this first attempt be unsuccessful the next two days bring increasing tides, that of Sunday being 9 feet 6 Inches, which .will give ample water- for the purpose. Assistant Engineer Robert W arrack left last night for Baker's Bay to superin tend the work. The tugs Mendel and Mel ville will be used to tow the lightship out of the bay and take her to Astoria. On her arrival there the vessel will be taken to the buoy depot and beached for an ex amination of Jier keel and hull in an en deavor to learn the full extent of her Injuries. Following this the lightship will be brought to Portland and placed in the drydock for full repairs. Major Roessler and Captain Fries, of the United States Engineer Corps, returned yesterday from an Inspection of tho Gov ernment projects under way on the Upper Columbia. The first of those Inspected was the survey being made of the Co lumbia River between the mouth of tho Snake River and Celllo. This work, which is now progressing rapidly should be completed by February and will be the first complete and concctcd survey made of that portion of the river.

DREDGES TO BE REPAIRED Port or Portland Commission "Will Place Craft in Good Condition. At a special meeting of the Port of Portland Commission held yesterday af ternoon, and attended by Commissioners Driscoil. Alnsworth. Willis. Thomas and Adams, the first named presiding in the absence of Vice-President Pease, tho report of J. B. C. Lockwood on tho con dition of the drydock and dredges Port land and Columbia was considered and repairs ordered as outlined in the re nort. Mr. Lockwood made a thorough examination of the craft and equipment belonging to the commission and in his report suggested many repairs needed. giving at the same timo an estimate of the cost The repairs to the drydock are con fined principally to the pumps, the part of the roport relating to these reading as follows: Toe ball bearings for the pumps I find that the bearings are very much overloaded, carrying approx imately 2200 pounds each. It will be im possible to enlarge the bcaVings enough to carry this load on account of the 11m Ited space available. It will be a much better plan to carry the weight of the armature and shaft on a separate frlc lion thrust hearing and have the ball bearing: to do duty only for Its pump, The report of Mr. Lockwood s'howed that numerous repairs were necessary to the dredges, particularly to the Port land, whose hull is in bad shape. Tho commission adopted the report of Mr. Lockwood. and will shortly call for bids for the work to be done. It is not likely that the dredges will be re paired until they get through with their work for the Government when they will be brought to Portland and put in the drydock. The request of James Laldlaw & Co., agents for the steamer Oceano, for a reduction in the drydock charges against the ship was also considered at this meeting. The bill against tho Oceano amounted to $9022, but a reduc tion of $55S was granted. BRINGS REPORTS OI RIOTS Steamer Abergeldle Arrive In River Direct From Japan. ASTORIA. Or.. Oct 28. (Special.)

Detective Vaughn arrested Eugene MOTHER AND CHILD. Let the mother take Scott's Emulsion for the two; it never fails to benefit them both. One can eat for two, but nour ishing two is a different thing. It calls for a de gree of internal strength that the average woman lacks. People of luxury are not very strong by habit; overworked people are weak in some func tions from exhaustion or their surroundings. Scott's Emulsion can be depend ed upon to overcome such conditions. It is a won derful food for a mother and child. SCOTT i BOWNE, 44 ?el Street, New Yerk. A GREAT ARTIST'S NEW PIANO 3 OIK. EMMA EAMES.

Emma Eames, the world-renowned singer, Avho, in connection with a brilliant company of artists, appears at the Marquam Grand Theater on the night of October 30, under the direction of Lois Stcers-Wynn Coraan, prefers and heartily indorses the Kimball Piano. In her beautiful music room in Paris is her chosen instrument, the only piano in the house a Kimball Grand brought from Chicago. She also has a Kimball in her Italian home at Vallombrosa, concerning which she writes as follows : ' Torredi CampigHonl Vallombrosa, September 19. Messrs. W. W.

When I received my Hrst Kimball piano for my Paris house, and found that after an ocean journey it did not require tuning, T was, as I wrota you thon. much surprised and delighted, but the facts concerning this new piano for my Italian home are even more astonishing. I therefore feel it my duty as well as my pleasure to Inform you of them. Elthor the agent In whose care we hid sent the piano, or the customs officials, were guilty of criminal carelessness. They wrenched the piano from the board which held it In place In the case after having cut tho lead lining which had hermetically sealed It and simply afterwards replaced the piano In the case with both locks unlocked, floated about In its case unlocked from Genoa to Florence and from Florence to Vallombrosa. Both hinges of the lid were broken, the keyboard jamed forward and part way out, so that the Hd covering it could not be shut. Of course, scratches innumerable all over tho piano. I was obliged to have two experienced workmen from Florence to put it in order, and evon then I feared tho piano would prove to be Irretrievably Injured. It is almost Incredible, but when the keyboard was put In position and wo were able for the first time to play upon it. it (the piano) did not need tuning. It has been a joy to mo this Summer and a wonder to all our Italian friends. I studied my new roles for te coming Winter upon 'it. Yours very sinceroly, (Signed.) EMMA EAMES.
