One Lap Oregon .Wolf Is
TWO BOATS ARE IMPAIRED
Three Entries in Free-for-All Heat
Oet Off- Together, but Winner
fchows Her Superiority lYom
Start Ball Is Given.
ASTORIA. Or.. Sept. 3. (Special.)
The speedboat Oregon Kid. owned by
Wilber Smith and driven by him and
Herman Zapf, will probably hold the
Pacific Coast International champion
chip for another year. That was prac
tocally decided this morning when she
beat the Oregon Wolf in the second
heat of the free-for-all contest, and,
barring an accident which would pre
vent her finishing the third heat to
morrow, cinched the championship.
The Kid now holds 10 points, while
the Wolf, her only dangerous an
tagonist, has but six, a decided ad
vantage at this tstage of the game.
The weather conditions today were
perfect for racing and the water was
even smoother than yesterday, every
thing being: ideal for some record
breaking, and this -unquestionably
would have occurred had the Kid been
crowded to the limit. As it was she
ran one lap at the rate of 40 miles
an hour, just seven-tenths of a mile
below the record on the local course,
-a record that was made by the Kid in
Vogler Boy Still I nder Water.
Hard luck which befell two of the
racers yesterday interfered materially
with today's contests. The Vogler Boy
is still at the bottom of the river and
the Red Nose, which was badly pound
ed and severely strained in yesterday's
races, was not in good shape and was
scarcely able to finish the heat in the
The Lawana also developed a streak
of hard luck. She won the heat in the
16-foot class and entered the free-for-all,
but was forced to drop out before
completing the first lap.
The first race of the morning was
the second heat of the race for 16-foot-ers,
three times around the- short
course, or nine miles. The only entries
"were the Lawana and Red Nose. They
got off together, but the former soon
swung into the lead and crossed the
line at the end of the first lap 32 sec
onds ahead of her rival. On the second
lap the Lawana spurted, running at
the rate of 30.9 miles an hour, and
gained nearly half a lap on the Red
Nose. She kept this lead to the end,
finishing in 18 minutes and 16 sec
onds, with the Red Nose 3 minutes and
seconds in the rear. The Lawana's
average speed for the nine miles was
29.6 miles an hour, Just equal to the
best lap made yesterday by the Vogler
Boy when it won the first heat.
Cannery Entries Dlnqnalifled.
The handicap cannery tender race in
which there were four entries was won
by the Altoona. with the Inde
pendence second. The S. Schmidt & Co.
and the- Globe, which finished first,
were disuualif ied for beating their try
cut speed more than 3 per cent.
There were but three entries in the
second heat of the free-for-all race
and but two of them finished. The
starters were the Oregon Wolf. Oregon
Kid and the Lawana, and the distance
was 20 miles, or four times around the
five-mile course. The start was one
of the prettiest ever seen on the local
course and there was scarcely six
Inches difference in the bows of the
racers when they crossed the line and
sped away for the upper buoy. The
Kid, however, was apparently out for
blood and she fairly Jumped out of the
water as she plunged ahead in a ter
rific spurt that sent a sheet of foam
and spray high into the air. With the
first quarter of a mile she obtained a
good lead, but she held to her knit
ting and finished the first lap in 7:30,
or at the rate of exactly 40 miles an
hour, the best time made thus far this
Wolf Haw Knglne Tronlile.
The Wolf did not make so good a
showing, as her engines were not be
having properly, and much of the time
only six of her nine cylinders were ex
ploding. At the end of the first lap
the Kid slowed down and lost a mile an
hour on each successive lap until the
last one. when she dropped to slightly
more than a 32-mile rate. At the close
the Wolf was more than half a lap
behind, while the lawana had dropped
out before making one run around the
course. The Oregon Kid's time for the
20 miles was S2-.T2; or at the rate of
37 miles an hour, much slower than
yesterday. The time for Oregon Wolf
was 38:48, or at a rate of 26:75 miles
In the sailing cruiser race this after
noon there were three entries, the
Wauna. Halycon and Columbian, all
members of the Oregon Yacht Club.
The Halycon came in first, but was dis
qualified for crowding the Wauna out
of the course and the latter was given

100 HOPPICKERS QUIT
Walkout at William P. Massey Yards
First Reported This Year.
QUINABY, Or., Sept. 3. (Special.)
The first strike noted in a hopyard
this year occurred Wednesday at the
William P. 'Massey yards, when 100
hoppickers walked out, after having
been given credit for 79 pounds of hops
instead of the usual 80 pounds, the
manager stating that the drenching
rain through which they had worked
had made the hops that much heavier.
General dissatisfaction prevails at
the rate of payment, which is 80 cents
a hundred, as supplies of all kinds are
high around the yards. No hops were
picked Wednesday afternoon and the
crew has been ordered from the shacks,
to make room for new pickers from

miles above Lewiston, who was in the
city from his stock ranch recently.
"I know several parties in this sec
tion who have beef cattle now. so fat
thit it is difficult to gret them over

been almost perfect. The prass could
not well be better, and crops of alfalfa

August Passes AYitliout Frost.
PR1XEVILLE. Or., Sept. 3. (Spe

who have been complaining of chilling
frosts in the Summer time are at a
loss to compare the present Summer's
wonderful weather with 20 and 30
years agro, because for the first time
in many years the month of August
has passed without any sign of a frost.
Farmers are preparing for a third cut
of alfalfa and the wood and coal men
are unable to talk fuel to any one. The
hot weather of the past three months
has made wonderful growths for the
Lay raisers and gardens.

HONOLULU. Sept. 3. Ten more

to effect an entrance. One body was

from the hold of the submarine. Others,
many in a fragmentary state and bad

SOFIA'S DESIRES NOT MET
OTHER BAL.lv AX STATES AGREE ON
All Are In reconcilable to Pretentions
of Bulgaria, Which Is Thought
Delmrlns Day- of Action.
ROM -3, via Paris, Sept. 3. Revision
of the treaty of Bucharest has been
agreed to explicitly by Serbia, Kou-
mania and Greece, according" to reports
received here, but it is said these coun
tries are not wiUing to satisfy entirely
Bulgaria's desire for territorial com
pensation for participating' in the war.
Bulgaria s pretensions apparently
are irreconcilable with what her neigh
bors are willing to grant and the im
pression is gaining ground that she is
prolonging the negotiations with the
aim of postponing the day when she
must reach a decision.
The treaty of Bucharest which ended
the Balkan conflict following the vic
tory over Turkey was signed August
10. 1913, between Bulgaria and Kou
bania, Greece and Montenegro.
By the treaty the Roumanian
Bulgarian frontier starts from the
Danube above Turtukai and ends on
the Black Sea south of Ekrane. The
Ser bo-Bulgarian frontier starts from
the Patarica Mountain, continues along
the old Turco-Bulgarian frontier and
the water shed between the Varda and
the Eturma and ends at the mountain
of Belashictza. The Greek-Bulgarian
frontier starts on the crest of the
Belashictaa ranee and ends at the

Governor Lister will return to Olym

than was anticipated. Politicians ex

During Mr. Lister's absence,- several

is believed here, may induce the exec

Several months ago. Governor Lister,

United States Senator, stated he would
either be a candidate for re-election
or would retire to private life.
