It took the members of the North Pad
lie Fair Association from 10 o'clock yes
terday morning until late In the afternoon
to straighten out the kinks In the allot
ments of dates, elect officers and arrange
the early closing stakes. "While there
vaf a good deal of conflict among the
various .secretaries representing the
different fair associations of the North
west, harmony prevailed and the meeting,
which was held in the offices of the Rural
Spirit, will mark. It Is believed, an epoch
In the light harness racing of this sec
tion of the country. '
Not all those present who wanted Sep
tember racing dates were able to secure
them. This- was due in part to the fact
that the members of the association were
not Informed as to when the California
season ends. Secrctarly Dan Curry,
rather than accept the dates that were
ottered him. preferred to have the privi
lege of selecting dates before those given
to Seattle or later. Just so that they did
not conflict with those taken by the'other
Secretary R. H. Cosgrove made applica
tion for two weeks of racing, but It was
found that it would be impossible to al
low the dates for a mixed harness and
running meeting, so the additional week
was allotted to Spokane. But the asso
ciation cannot give harness events dur
ing the second week or give a stock show.
During the discussion over the granting
of dates A. T. Vcndcvantcr. of Seattle,
introduced A resolution which provided
that all members of the association should
abide by a two-thirds vote of the mem
bers present on all questions which may
come up at the meetings. This was done
lo head off any member who might be
come dissatisfied with the dates allowed
The Oregonian will start a voting contest on Monday, Jan
uary 15, 3906, to continue until Tuesday, May 15, 1906. The pur
pose of this contest is to send twenty:three of Oregon's, Wash
ington's and Idaho's most popular 3Toung ladies to the Yellowstone
Park, about July 10, 1906. The young ladies who win in this
contest will be the guests of The Oregonian, all expenses to be
paid hy this paper, and care taken to make the trip a decided
success. The winners will be fifteen days on the trip.
Remember the Date that the Contest Starts
JANUARY 15, 1906

Cut it out, bring it to The Oregonian office, with the name
of the lady upon it for whom you wish to yote, and it will couut

them and seek to loavc the meeting and
select their own dates. The penalty for
refusing to abide by the two-thirds vote
is that any association bolting the meet
ing is outlawed. Thus, should they give
a meeting, all horsemen who race on the
offending association's track arc out
lawed. The other important resolutions
adopted provided that each association
must give at least two harness events on
each racing day.
In order to make the harness racing
season in the Pacific Northwest one of
the best in the history of light harness
racing, the various fair associations will
give to the harness men 573.000 in stakes.
Owing to the fact that there were no
nreotings at Salem and Seattle last year
the members of the association realized
that in order to keep the harass men
and their horses on the Coast this year
it would be necessary to hang up purses
and stakes which would be worth while
It was decided that the various mem
bers of the association name at least two
early closing stakes and the amounts
which each association would give. The
Oregon State Fair Association will have
three $10C0 stakes and one at J2000. The Sa
lem stakes are: 2:20 trot, $1000; 2:20 pace,
$1000; two-year-old pace, $400; three-year-old
trot. $500; 2:25 pace. $1000; 2:15 pace.
52000; 2:10 pace. $700; two-year-old trot,
$400; three-year-old trot, $500; 2:21 trot,
$1000; 2:17 trot. $2000; 2:12 trot, $700.
North Yakima will give a $1000 2:15 pace
and $1000 for a 2:10 pace.
Spokane will Rive $1000 for a 2:16 trot
and $1000 for a 2:10 pace.
Walla Walla will give $100) for a 2:17
trot and $1000 for 2:10 pacers.
Lowlston hangs up $503 for 2:13 trotters
and $500 for a 2:13 pace.
Everett offers two purses of .$500 each
for a 2:40 and a 2:23 trot. A purse of $5
for a 2:15 pace and $$00 for a 2:10 pace.

SKEIi ROACH Oil TWO TEAMS
Will Pitch Both for Spalding and
CHICAGO, Jan. 10. (Special.) Bob
Welch has signed Skel Roach, of Chi
cago, to pitch for his Spalding- team
next year. The deal is one of the most
peculiar In baseball, and may set the
minor leagues to thinking. By his con
tract. Roach pitches SuntTay and holi
day frames for the Spaldings. He has
signed a contract also to work in one
or more games a week for the Three
1" League, on the Davenport club.
By the arrangement the Davenport
people get the experience of a wcll
trnincd, hard-working player at much
less expense and get rid of the expense
of carrying- him during- a large portion
of the time he would not bo working
for them. In case he was signed the
regular way. This gives to the Spald
ings a star for the prairie and semi
professional games and Incidentally
the player gets enough mld-weck work
to keep him in shape.
For the player this means steady
employment through the Summer at a
salary above most of the minor league
POULTRY SHOW IS OPEX.
Display of Pigeons Finest Ever Seen
The annual poultry show of the Oregon
Poultry Association opened yesterday
morning at the corner of Front and Sal
mon streets, and in spite, of the late ar
rival of many of the coops the judging
began in the afternoon. Tho number of
entries, both In chickens and pigeon?, is
the largest ever exhibited by the associa
tion. The pigeon display outranks any ever
held in the Northwest, both as to the
quality and number of birds shown. This
display alone Is well worth seeing, but
the officials have been unfortunate in
selecting the place they did for holding
At night it Is almost impossible to find
the place where the show Is being held,
and this will keep a great man people,
who would otherwise visit the show, from
peeing the splendid exhibition.

slipped from the sling- by which they
were being hoisted from the wharf
Into the hatch and shot Into the hold
of the vessel. The only man hurt was
C Amonsen. who was not quick enough
on his feet and as a result lies at St.

which was crushed, necessitating am

o'clock. No one seems to know exactly
how It happened, except that the hook
released Its hold on the chain holding
the lumber as It swung over the large
hatchway. With a terrific racket, the
heavy pieces landed on tho timbers al

Amonsen met with a similar accident
about two years ago when his left foot
was badly crushed and for that reason
he was not as quick as his fellow
workmen in getting out of harm's way.
He is a single man and lives on a scow

"The object of the company Is not
to unite the several interests for the
purpose of cutting rates or Indulging

purpose of centralizing the ticket busi

and steam schooners plying between
Portland and California ports," said
Mr. Toung In stating the objects of
the new company. "Plans are tentative
as yet, but the intention is to handle
the sale of tickets from sorae centrally
located office. At "present the traveling
public is put to considerable trouble

various agencies being spread all over
the city and along the water front.
"The establishment of a steamboat
line between this city and Yaqulna
Bay will be revived next Spring and
the Independent Steamship Ticket Com
pany will. In all probability, also look
after that business."
