SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 26. (Special.)
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:

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.
University o Oregon Expects to
Have Lively Encounter.
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
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.

(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

Seven Steamers Arrive, Ten
Ships Are Chartered.
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.
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
E live in India only three
months, and during the other nine

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

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 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.

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.

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

Italian Customs Officials' Carelessness Almost Ruined Case, but Tone
and Tune Remain Perfect Mme. Eames' Letter: "A Joy and
Wonder," She Says:
Like other eminent artists such as the De Reszkes, Nordica, Sem
brich, Patti, De Lussan, Gadski and many others. Mme. 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. Kimball Co.i
Dear Slrs-rl write not only to acknowledge the receipt of the piano I
chose at your wareroonis when in Chicago hittt November, but to state a
fact In connection therewith which cannot fall to be of Interest to you.
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.
