OKEGOM'S MOST FAMOUS ATHLETE
Joseph H. Smith, "Who Excelled in All Fields of Sport and
Wno "Won Many Victories for the Multnomah Gab
JOSEPH H. SMITH Is the greatest all
round athlete that Oregon has ever
produced, and his records and accom
plishments can show to the younger gen
eration of baseball, football and tennis
players and track athletes -what a man
can do who has never trained for an
athletic event. Smith is a natural-born
athlete, and has been able to do anything:
he has ever tried at the first attempt. His
cool head and lltho physique won many
a victory for the Multnomah Club.
' As one of Smith's friends said: "Smith's
fame has come because he was always
Johnny-on-the-spot, when he was needed.
No matter if it were a football game al
most lost or a ball game with the bases
full and only one man out. Smith was
equal to the occasion, and made the
necessary ground or struck out the neces
The facts of Smith's career have been
gathered from friends. His estimation of
his accomplishments has always been con
fined to the time Immediately following
the game or whatever kind of sport it
was he was engaged In. If he pulled vic
tory out of what seemed hopeless defeat,
he was glad at the time, but that was
the last heard of it from him. He loves
the excitement at the time, but he does
not value his record in itself, except as
showing himself that he can do it again.
And every one wishes be would take the
time to try.
His athletic career began in the late 'SOa
at the Bishop Scott Academy, where he
played baseball welL But he was only a
boy, and was soon sent away to Law
xenceville School, in New Jersey. There
as he grew his fame came quickly. It
was baseball there with him then as with
every one else In that time. He was there
three years, and learned to pitch. At
Lawrenceville it is told yet how Smith
handled the ball, and the wonderful throw
he had. His record for throwing the ball
has not been broken there yet, and It was
made in 1S92. That was his last year
there, but many men who afterward
played on the fast ball teams that Har
vard, Yale and Princeton used to have at
that time, have been fanned by him. His
arm was at Its very best then, and he
was relied "upon by his school to win
games for it. During the last Spring he
was pitching three and four games a
week, and in the last game he pitched be
fore vacation he felt a sudden pain above
his elbow. Immediately afterward he
came out-here and pitched for" the Mult
nomah Club. His arm was weakened for
the season, and more or less permanently.
His school-fellows at Lawrenceville say
that Portland has never seen him. at his
best, on account of that bad arm, but It
has seen him pitch wonderful games. In
1894 he pitched the Multnomah Club Into
the Northwest championship. The Seat
tie game was the most exciting of the
scries, and this Is the way It ended: The
score was C-5, In favor of Multnomah In
the ninth, but Seattle had the bases full,
and only one man was out.
That was Just the situation where Smith
shone. Here was the place where his
headiness could come In. He struck his
two men straight, and the championship
And he is Just as good at the bat. The
following year, which was a time when
tho old Portland Athletic Club flourished,
Portland and Multnomah played a close
game, and in tho ninth the score was 8-7,
against Multnomah, with a man on sec
ond. Smith came to tho bat like the re
nowned Casey, but he did not have his
fate. He knocked a clean two-bagger,
tying the score. Ho stole third and was
brought in himself by Shortstop Thomp
son. Smith was much admired before he
did that trick, bift no crowd that ever
witnessed a game on Multnomah Field
ever went so wild. Tho Portland sup
porters had been so sure of victory that
they had already lined up for the march
of triumph. The excitement of the Mult
nomah rooters when Smith gavo the game
the sudden turn was something delirious.
That was the last of his baseball until
ho pitched for the Second Oregon Volun
teers in the Philippines. There had been
a series of games among the regiments
of different states, and the championship
lay in tho end between Oregon and Penn
sylvania. Smith had not lost a game.
Oregon was one run shy toward tho end
of the game. There was a man on base.

It is a show which never becomes old to
the masses, and no matter how dull the
theatrical seasonmay be, "Tom people"
are prosperous. ,
There have been hustle and bustle about
the Tailroad tracks- at Fourth avenue,
north, and Fifth street this week. The two
big cars belonging to the Minneapolis
promoters have been repainted and
scrubbed until they shine like Uncle Tom's
countenance. Trucks have been hauling in
load after load of canvas for the big tents,
and scenery, seats, dogs, ponies, trom
bones, actors and actorines, and all that
goes to make up the traveling village,
have been In evidence. The bloodhounds
have consistently tried to bite the leg of
every loafer they could' reach, and the
Shetland ponies have, tried to "kick the
sides out of the car." Marks came near

speaking, the Uncle Tom business has

lty people smile at the old play, but it
takes cold cash and a lot of It to put a
.r show of the kind on the road. It is a
miniature circus these days, and demands
the same keen business management re
quired in any other line of business. The
show which has been outfitting in Min
neapolis this week carries almost 75 peo
ple, including actors, canvasmen, business
agents and the ticket-sellers and takers.
The company will play North and South
Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin.
Large crowds have watched the work from
the Fifth-street bridge, but the abusive
language used by the dogs has prevented
too large a crowd from Interfering with
the work of the laborers.

flirted along through the grass. The nfan
came in and Smith likewise. It was the
cleanest homo run he ever made. "Foul,"
said the umpire, and the championship
Smith's football record Is scarcely less
illustrious. He played here one season,
and the next two he was made captain of
the team. Football was not then what it
is now, but Smith knew the game as it
should be played, and taught his men
form. In those days Blyth and Jack Sav
age used to play guards, and the line
was Immovable. Smith bad been in the
line at Lawrenceville himself, but here he
was a running half and fullback. At
school he had a record of being able to
handle any man under 23) pounds, and he
only weighed 1G0 himself. In one par
ticular game when he first came out. In
1B93. the score stood 4-0 against Multno
mah. The touchdown only counted four
then. But the drop-kick counted five, as
now. Few people here had ever seen a
drop kicked in a game. Multnomah could
only work the ball to the 30-yard line.
Smith asked the time left to play. Ten
Beconds he was told. He dropped back
and did what has often been done since,
but which in that day was a great feat
he kicked a goal from the field, and won
the game. That Is Smith's great virtue as
an athlete he wins.
Unfortunately, his football career came
to an abrupt end in the Rugby football
game played between the Multnomah and
Olympls Clubs at the Midwinter Fair, In
San Francisco. He threw out his knee,
and was not able to play for some years,
and since then he has got out of the
Oddly enough, Smith's all-around ath
letic fame is somewhat of an accident, as
far as purpose of being known for it Is
concerned. The active sports, such as
baseball, football and tennis, in which he
had a record here, also at Lawrenceville,
have always been of more interest than
anything else In the athletic line to him.
But he ran some at school, and while at
Lawrenceville, while playing third base,
he would have to Jump several stationary
hurdles every time he allowed a ball to
pass. The fact that he became a pro
ficient hurdler from that practice does
not imply that he let many balls pass, but
shows the aptitude he had for any form
of sport. He was the first man to intro
duce to Portland the proper way of hurd
ling. It was 1893, when he was the big gun
in the baseball world, that he won the all
round championship In field athletics. He
really put little time to it, as he was
more Interested In baseball at the time,
but he was a good hurdler, could handle
the weights, ran a good clip and could
Jump well further than any one. He
went in against men like Alva Stevens
and Foster Beck, the latter having won
the championship the year before. He
won. He won in almost everything. Sud
denly his fame shot sky-high In that di
rection. He trained a little for those par
ticular sports after that.
As to training in general, he Is always
in condition. He does not train at all,
in fact, but he could go out on the track
or ball diamond and do as well as ever.
The famous ball game he pitched in
Manila, after long unfamillarity with the
game, shows how ho retains his skill.
He represented the club In the hurdles
and broad Jump successfully several times
after he was champion, but it was mere
ly to help out the team, he did not care
for tho honors. He was also the club's
amateur champion boxer, and recently
was on the Multnomah billiard team that
defeated the Commercial Club.
An illustration of his athletic readiness
was shown two years ago, when the ten
nis fever struck the club. Smith had not
touched a racquet for years, but he took
up the sport, and a few days later gave
Walter Goss, the local champion, one of.
the fastest games of his life. Smith won
his share of the game, too, but Goss'
superior training and experience gave him
Things that can be termed sports are
really his forte, and he plays them and
plays them well because he likes them
and is a natural-born athlete.

WATER WILL HOT QUENCH
Only those who have experienced the awful itching and
burning of Bczema can know how it feels to be consumed by
the blistering, fiery acids oozing out through the pores of the
skin. There is no other skin disease that compares in severity
with Bczema. It begins as a mere redness of the slrinj or
comes in little watery blisters and pimples, discharging a thin
sticky fluid which hardens into scabs and scales, leaving a raw
and inflamed surface as they peel off, while the itching is
almost intolerable. Bczema is the most vicious and violent of
all skin diseases, appearing in many different forms: the dry
and scaly kind with brownish white crusts, which gives the skin a rough, leathery appear
ance, and producing sometimes painful fissures and sores. In other cases the skin has a
swollen, moist appearance, with occasional profuse discharges of watery matter. Bt all
the varieties and types of this aggravating disease are akin and are caused by impure blood
and an over-acid condition of this vital fluid that seems to set the skin on fire, kindling a
flame that water will not quench, and an itchmg, stinging eruption that lotions, soaps, salves
and powders cannot suppress. As the poi-
SAN F-RAyNCISeO. HAS MEW CLUB
The Sequoia Is to Foster Art, Literature, Music and Drama
Conreid's Artists and Greeks Players May Come to the Coast
i AN FRANCISCO. May 1L (Special
Correspondence.) A club with lofty
ambitions has been formed here by
artists, literary folk and the patrons of
art. They have banded together under the
California name of "Sequoia," but their
ideas are borrowed from lands remote.
Tho object is to promote art and literature
In San Francisco. The new organization
hopes to father (or mother, for it is made
up of men and women) a salon on broader
lines than has heretofore been attempted'
west of New York. In addition, the study
of music will be encouraged by bringing
to California tho finest vocalists and in
strumentalists In the world. Tho drama
will receive a like recognition. Already
contemplated' are tho bringing of Con
reld's group of operatic stars to the Coast
in the Fall and a Western tour for the
Ben Greet miracle players. The club has
Included in its personnel mon and women
of financial prominence, as well as those
more directly Interested in art. The presi
dency of the club has been bestowed upon
Charles S. Aiken, editor of Sunset Maga
zine. MIsb Jessica Picxotto, the first wo
man to receive a Ph. D. degree from the
University of California, and an authority
on sociology. Is vice-president, promi
nent among the 100 members are: Frank
lin K. Iano. late candidate for Governor
and for Mayor; British Consul-General
Bennett, Mrs. B. F. Norris wife of tho
novelist; William Greer Harrison, presi
dent of the Olympic Club; ex-Mayor James
D. Phelan, John McNaught, managing
editor of the Call; Charles Kceler, tho
poet; Fremont Older, managing editor of
tho Bulletin; Ashton Stevens, dramatic
critic of tho Examiner: William Keith, tho
artist, and Ernest Simpson, city editor of
the Chronicle. In addition there are a
score of the most prominent society mat
rons and a strong representation from
the artists and musicians of the city.
Strange among the court records of
tho week have been two breach of promise
suits, in the one, the plaintiff was her
own attorney. She was a Mrs. Richards,
of whom a wealthy Chicagoan had grown
weary. She agreeably accepted the
first twelve Jurymen offered. Frequent
exhibitions of hysteria and her statement
that "our relations were as pure as those
of the angels" failed to impress the Jury
in tho face of some very plain and un
adorned assertions of the defcntlant. He
had offered her $500. but the Jury awarded
her but $1.00.
The other case was that of a trapeze ac
tress. Miss Lconna Sonne by name, who
asked for $100,000 from W. L. B. Carey,
a Manxman, the son of Colonel Carey,
of Crimean war fame. In view of the fact
that this was the third tlmo the aerial
artist had appealed to the courts for
golden heart salve tho equilibrium of the
defendant was not affected.
A court-martial is in sight for Colonel
William Pitcher, who Is accused of trifling
with the affections of some score of young
women. Colonel Pitcher, who Is a brother
of Major Pitcher, superintendent of the
Yellowstone Park, is on duty at the Pre-
(d&io. He was first charged with Jilting
Miss Caroline Harold, of Washington, but
since then reports have floated In from
several places where Pitcher has been
stationed, telling of his lovemaklng, but
non-marrying ways. So many, of these
tales have reached the war office that Sec
retary Taft has had them made into for
mal charges. Taft is determined that the
brand of romancing charged against
Pitcher shall cease in the Army. He is
quoted as saying that no man guilty of
the misconduct charged against Pitcher Is
fit to wear an American Army uniform.
To give Pitcher a chance to clear him
self he has ordered a court-martial.
A new movo by tho commercial bodies
of San Francisco calculated to remedy a
great defect In the city's business life Is
the plan set on foot this week to supply
the harbor with adequate dockage facili
ties. The great ferry building completed
in 189S at a cost of $700,000 was outgrown
two years ago, and so crowded have be
come conditions on the water front that
confusion and delay are the results. Three
transpacific steamship companies are giv
en one wharf between them. The Gov
ernment Is confined to one dock for Its
transports, where three are essential. The
Southern Pacific ferry slips, crowded to
twice their capacity, have been divided for
a second time, on this occasion for the
new Key transbay system. The seawall
is banked with merchandise which should
occupy a space half again as extensive.
Boats criss-cros3 and back in order to
avoid collision and wait In the stream for
a vacant dock. Passengers wade through
coops and barrels to gain their boats, and
river steamers crowd their moorings in
close formation. In order to remedy all
this the commercial bodies propose to
bring about an Issue of bonds for har
bor Improvements to the extent of $2,000.

the commercial Interests of the islands
will be entertained In San Francisco upon
their arrival here, at the end of the
month. They will spend five or six days
here, and during that time will be shown
all the courtesies which a city can ex
tend. They will be under the special care
of Governor Pardee, Mayor Schmitz,
Rear-Admiral Kempff and Major Devol.

things about Mansfield In view of the
constancy with 'which he has shunned the
Pacific Coast. However, now that the
great prosperity of the Pacific Coast and
the waning glory of the East have sent
him scrambling over the Rockies, San
Franciscans relent and open their arms
to receive him. His $30,000 special will

T"OXI people are getting ready for

ambiguous statement means little, but to
those in the know it conveys the
sentiment that the "Uncle Tom's

American people are anarchists, the chil
dren of anarchists, and in turn tne

any religious organization tfiat we have.
