Ttedmen sprang a surprise m City
League fans yesterday afternoon by
downing Red Hupert's West Siders 11
to 3. In the initial contest George
Orayson's Maroons triumphed over
Sellwood 3 to 0. with Rube Maxmeyer
on the mound for the Southeast-side
The eccentric cut-up twirled a good
fame for the lowly Lewis crowd, and,
although he was backed up with nine
hits bv his teammates, while he was ai
lowing but six to the Piedroonters, he
was unable to tuck away his first gams
in the city circuit. Poor headwork on
the bases on at least two occasions
was partly responsible for the Sellwood
Work on Bases Poor,
On two occasions men were half way
to the next base on a fly to the out'
field, and it would have meant two
scores at least for Sellwood had they
used Judgment and waited until the
fly was caught, as they would have
had ample time to gallop over the
The second game started out like a
pitchers' battle. Both twlrlers let their
oDDOnents down one, two. three lor
three innings. Then the Monarchs
slipped over two tallies on a hit and
two errors. This did not seem to feaze
the Redmen. however, as they put over
one run in their half and two more in
the fifth inning. At this Juncture
Murphy showed signs of weakening and
Chet Hughes snagged a-double off his
delivery in the sixth, but the Reds
could not get enough hits to make a
run In that canto. Four tallies each
in the seventh and eighth frames gave
them their big score.

Rupert's crew made their extra bell
ringer In the first of the ninth when
Lund allowed a walk and two biuglea
in a row.
The Monarchs seemed to have an Off
day all around. The twirling of Luna
seemed to have them mystified. They
were unable to connect with the de
livery of the big fiery-domed f linger.
Wolfer was in the lineup, despite the
fact that it had been reported during
the week that he had left for Montana.

WEEK FULL OF THRILLS
ST. LOUIS NATIONALS AND NEW
YORK YANKS ADVANCE.
Teams Little Rated In Either Leagme
Dash Totvanl Top. Both Chicago
Clubs Keep Up Top Clip.
NEW YORK. June 20. The upward
rush of the St. Louis Nationals and
the notable showing of the New York
Americans, after a sorry slump which
had landed them in the second divi
sion, were features of the week in the
major league races. .
Both these teams now occupy well
entrenched first division places, the
Cardinals in particular being in a posi
tion where they are likely to give the
leaders serious trouble if they keep up
anything like their recent good work.
Whllo St. Louis has been climbing,
the Chicago team has shown no signs of
faltering, and. in fact, by winning four
out of five games during the week,
pushed the Philadelphias out of first
place. Today St. Louis, by beating the
Bostons while the Philadelphias were
losing to Cincinnati, drove Pat Moran's
team down another notch, the Cardinals
advancing to second place.
Two pronounced losing streaks were
developed during the week, both the
Bostons and the Brooklyns dropping
five out of six games.
The American League situation
grows Increasingly interesting. Even
St. Louis, which dropped at a . fast
rate by losing six straight games, ral
lied today and beat Detroit, which had
to surrender second position during the
week to the speeding Bostons. The
Tigers are now only three games ahead
of the Yankees.
Philadelphia has plumped into the
cellar again, and the Clevelands. like
the Browns, are on the downward
trend. The Washingtons failed to live
up to the promise furnished by their
good work of the week previous, and
only by grace of Walter Johnson's ef
fectiveness yesterday kept their record
up to the .600 mark through beating
Nothing, however, seems to stop the
Chicago leaders. Cleaning up four out
of five games last week, they started
in promisingly again today by taking
both ends of a double-header from the
Clevelands and Increased their lead
over the Red Sox to 40 points.
FOOTBALL DATES ATfcE SET
California to Play Washington on
November 6 and . 13.
BERKELEY, Cal., June 20. Novem
ber 6 and 13 have been -fixed upon by
the' University of California and the
University of Washington as the dates
upon which the football teams of the
two schools are to meet this year in a
revival of the American collegiate
game. It was announced here today.

tentative, dependent upon the ratifi

and President Benjamin Ida Wheeler
of the decision already announced of
California to drop the Rugby game.
The first game is to be played in Berke
ley and the second in Seattle. Fresh
men, it has been decided, are not eligi

hardy sons, trained to expert
marksmanship through genera

That the Grace line steamer Colusa,

The steamer Is loading wheat for M.
II. Houser and at 6 o'clock this morn
ing she will be shifted to the Irving
dock to complete her cargo.
The Colusa arrived at the North
Bank dock at 10:30 yesterday morning
and at 1 o'clock six crews, consisting
of about 130 men, were put to work
loading the wheat.
When she left San Francisco the Co
lusa was in need of relining, and, in
order that there should be no delay in
port, lumber was taken on there and
the carpenters began the work en
route. At Astoria about 40 .additional
carpenters were taken aboard and the
work completed by the time the steam
er arrived in Portland. .
The Colusa has just completed a trip
amounting to about 25,000 miles, ac

P. S. MICIIIE WOKE IS BETTER
Depth of Nearly 2 1 Feet Reported at
Entrance to Coos Bay.
MARSH FI ELD, Or., June 20. (Spe
cial.) The heavier powered dredge Col.
P. S. Mlchie, since returning to Coos
Bay, has been doing highly satisfac
tory work on the bar, and in the first
half of June removed from the channel
94,000 yards of sand, with a high record
of 11,200 yards in one day. During
1914. the first year the Michle worked
here, her record for the month of May
was but 35,000 yards.
The reconstruction of the engine and
boiler-room on the dredge is respon-
ible for the Increased efficiency. Be
fore being overhauled the Michie could
not be depended upon to work on the
bar when there was a heavy wind, for
the power was too light to hold the
dredge in the channel, whereas the
craft can work now whenever the bar
is not rough.
Engineer Polhemua, in charge of the
Government work In this portion of the
state, is confident the dredge will make
a fine record this year and Improve
the depth of water on the bar to an
extent surprising to mariners and" the
shippers of Coos Bay. A chart of the
last survey shows a channel nowhere
less than 19 feet, and the survey was
made three weeks ago. Since then the
Mlchie has dredged the few shallow
places and the general depth is said
now to be between 20 and 21 feet.

Home Treatment For

At OREGON HOTEL
Also the privilege of vltnesfins a most re
markable demonstration of what STL'AHT'S
PLAPAO-PADS tlo for ruptured people. The
plapao-Pads ere an entirely new and wonder
ful treatment (not the same old truss under
a new name) for me worst forms In th
privacy of the home, without hindrance from
work: and at alight expense.
By STUART'S PLAPAO-PADS
means that you can throw away the painful
truss forever, as they are not merely a, me- "
chatiical support Ukd the trues, but their
unpa.raUe.ed fiucce& is due to their bem
applicators of the scientifically compounded
astringent absorbent medication, called
PLAPAO the purpose being to keep the
medication OO.N'siTA NTLY applied, so that
it contract and strengthen the weakened
abdominal muscles, thus effecting a closure
of the opening through which the viscera
protrude; this, of course, absolutely does
away with the rupture and the necwaity of
using any artificial support. Being self
adhesive, and when adhering closely to the
body, slipping being impossible, therefore,
they are also an important adjunct in re
taining rupture that cannot be held by a
truss. No htrnps, BuckleH or Springs at
tached. Demon&trator Babcock, whose wid
experience In this country and In Europe
