START TO PRACTICE.
Four of McCredle's Players Begin
BAXERSFXELD, Cal., March 4. (Spe
cial.) Those "Wobfooters from up Port
land who are to train here for tho Pacific
Coast League season of 1905 began unllm
borlng this morning. Manager "Walter H.
McCredio and four of tho vanguard of his
baseball troopers journeyed out to Ath
letic Park, and with tho assistance of a
dozen or more schoolboys Indulged in the
first preliminary practice of the season.
With Manager McCredie were Eddy
Householder. Deacon Van Buren. Jlmmy
Gleaeon and Pitcbpr Esslck.
McCredie was content with having his
pennant-winners chasing files that were
lenocked Into tho outfield by the young
sters and Umbering up on the bases.
About two hours were spent In this pas
. tltne. This was enough, for the sun had
ktseed the thermometer until It registered
100 degrees. From the field the players
went to the clubhouse, whero they took a
Fhower bath and received a rub down by
an expert whom McCredie had engaged
especially for the purpose.
Pitcher Garvin. Atz Gillpatrlck. French,
Runkle and McLean are expected here on
the overland trains late this evening or
tomorrow morning, and Swindells will
land here early next week. Jim St. Vraln
ad Bert Jones arrived tonight. Mc
Credie has capitulated to Mike Fisher,
allowing him to have a clear field with
his Tacoma team against the Chicago
Nationals In this city on March 12. "When
the Portland manaser arrived here. It
was his Intention to proceed to Los An
geles and arrange to bring players to this
city for a game on the above date, but
tho management of the new baseball park
talked him out of It.
On March 16 the Webfooters will 'play
the Chicago Nationals here, and that day
will surely be a holiday, and a record
breaking attendance is assured. Tomor
row the Portland team will play an exhi
bit ton game with a picked team from the
Kern County Commercial League, which
just closed Its season. Several strong
professionals have been Incorporated Into
the line-up of the locals, and McCredle's
mon will meet a nine in perfect condition,
and will be obliged, to play ball to win.
Those representing Bakersfield are Claf
lln, pitcher; Kaymce, catcher; McCue,
first base: Benson, second base; Durge,
third base; Shea, shortstop; Alexander,
left field; Oberle, center field, and "West
lake, right field. This team win play the
Webfooters three games each week.
Next Sunday the new recreation park
will be inaugurated. It has the finest
diamonds in this part of California. The
grounds were built by tho Transit Com
pany, and every modern convenience for
training has been installed. Nearly all
the other Pacific Coast League teams are
preparing In cities not far from Bakers
field, and the park management Is nego
tiating with Los Angeles, Oakland. San
Francisco and Seattle for games against
, Portland Sundays during this month.
Eddy Householder ran from the Fern
City station to the Southern Hotel, in this
city, where the -ballplayers are stopping,
-a distance of three miles. Esslck, who Is
from Salt Lake, closed tho day very stiff.
Little Gleason, who -formerly wore the
colors of a Washington university, took
oft a few pounds of fat. The "Judge" de
voted almost the afternoon to running,
and his legs are sore tonight. McCredie
recoh-cd word that Coe left Omaha for
this city today.
UNITE ' THE MINOR LEAGUES
Mission of O'Neill and Griffiths to
SAN FRANCISCO. March 4. iSpeclal.)
Tip O'Neill and Howard Griffiths, the
baseball magnates who were delegated by
the Western and Eastern leagues and the
American Association to confer with the
Pacific Coast League in regard to forming
an organisation to combat the major
leagues, arrived from Chicago early this
morning. As soon as they arrived they
called on President Bert,"
Neither O'Neill nor Griffiths would dis
cuss their mission until they had met the
president of the Pacific Coast League.
They did say that they thought the big
leagues were too dictatorial, and that it
was time for the minor leagues to stand
together. If the latter organize, O'Neill
and Griffiths both expressed the opinion
that the National and American leagues
would come off their high horse and be
willing to treat fairly with the minors.
Neither magnate was certain that there
would be a baseball war.
Tho main object la to get better terms
from tho big leagues. A special meeting
of the Coast League has beon called for
Tuesday, March 7, to consider the propo
sition. MAY BE ONLY A JOKE.
Western Bowlers Talk of Forming
SPOKANE, March 4. A plan for the
formation of a "Western Bowling
League is made public by the Chron
icle today. The plan Is for San Francis
co. Denver. Butte. Spokane and Seat
tle to secede from the American Bowl
ing Congress, forming a new league.
The recent action of the American
Bowling Congress In requiring regula
tion alleys -with flat gutters and limit
ing balls to 16 pounds is given as a rea
son for the threatened secession.

gon City team last evening at the Port
land Bowling Alleys, after brilliant play

w cessfully Accomplished.
The shipping activity of this port in the
next 60 days will be largely confined to
the dispatching of cargoes to the Orient,
Fully 50.000 tons of miscellaneous freight
will be forwarded from Portland to .the
Far East In the two months, and the port
will be visited by at least 11 large over
The Portland & Asiatic Company is
rushing cargo aboard the Numantla at
Oceanic dock, and will have her away on
her voyage across the Pacific by March
9. The Arabia, of this line. Is due here
March IS, and she will be followed about
three "weeks later by the Aragonla.
The Ras Elba will finish loading a half
cargo of oats at Seattle today, and will
sail tomorrow morning for this port to
complete her load with hay. She Is ex
pected here "Wednesday night. Another
steamer, not yet chartered, will take sim
ilar cargo on the Sound and at Portland.
The Forest Brook has been figured upon
for the business, but the negotiations had
not been closed last night. If she Is not
fixed, another steamer of the same capac
ity will be secured. The cargoes of- both
the Ras Elba and tho other vessel will be
taken on at the warehouses of Alb era
Bros.. In this city, and at Seattle.
A third tramp steamer to load here will
be the Ellerlc. which Is on- the way across
from Japan. Balfour, Guthrie c Co. have
her under charter, and will load her with
a full cargo of barley.
The United States army will be well
represented in the shipping movements.
The transport Buford will come here
about the middle of the month and em
bark the Nineteenth Infantry, now quar
tered at Vancouver Barracks, sailing on
April 1 for Manila. Soon after her de

hag orders to sail eastward from Manila
on March 15. Besides these regular trans
ports, the Government will charter two
commercial steamers to carry a large
quantity of lumber approximately 2,200,
000 feet to the islands. The material was
recently purchased here and will be used
In the construction of army buildings at
Fort "William McKlnley. at Manila. Bids
for the transportation have been called
for and will be opened March 10. The law
requires that Government supplies be car
ried to the Insular possessions in Ameri
can bottoms, when such are available;
but as American steamers are scarce on
the northern coast, provision has been
made for the participation of foreign
ship owners in the bidding.
The latest addition to the list of Portland-bound
steamers Is tho Drayton
Grange, a Britisher of 4246 tons net. She
sailed from "Wellington, N. Z., March 1
for this city. The steamer is comlnc In
ballast and was probably attracted to this
coast, with others, by the revival In tho
trans-Paclflc steamer trade. The Drayton
Grange belongs to the Grange line of
steamers, plying between ports of Aus
tralia, New Zealand and South Africa.
She acquired considerable celebrity during
the Boer war, when she was used as a
British transport between England and
the Cape. On the voyage that gave her
the most fame she conveyed a large num
ber of sick and wounded soldiers home
from the front. She was proved to bo
well arranged and equipped for the pur
pose, but for some reason not explained
she set sail and proceeded on her way
with no physicians aboard.
LONGEST TOW ON RECORD.
Oil Steamer Atlas Brings a Barge
From New York to San Francisco.
The longest tow recorded In marine his
tory was brought to an end a few days
ago when the Standard Oil steamer Atlas
arrived at San Francisco, leading the
Standard company's barge No. 93. These
vessels left New York 72 days before, and
in that time covered a total distance of
12,090 miles, straight run. A great steel
cable 350 fathoms in length held the craft
together. It parted but once, and then
for only an hour. The Atlas left New
York with 15,000 barrels of fuel oil in her
tanks, and had 5000 left when she arrived.
Tho barge brought 1,255,000 gallons of
naphtha. The only atop on the long voy
age was mado at Punta Arenas. Both
steamer and barge will be employed In
Coast trade here.
The Atlas was built for the Standard
Oil Company at Chester, Pa,. In 19S. She
is 21S feet long, 40 feet 1 Inch beam and
22 feet 5 inches deep. Her net tonnage Is
1243. The average speed on the trip was
9& knots, but without tow tho Atlas can
mako about 14 knots. The crew of the
Atlas numbers 25.
Barge No. S3 Is a peculiar-looking craft,
somewhat resembling a four-masted
schooner. Her masts are of steel and the
foremast answers the purpose of a smoke
stack for the engine-room forward. Her
steering gear and all the general mech
anism are run by eteam power, but she
lacks steam-propelling power. She Is
about two years old, is built of steel, and
is a thoroughly up-to-date oil-tank barge.
She is 230 feet long, 45 feet beam and 21
feet depth. Her capacity is 23,000 barrels
ALUANCE DUE TONIGHT.

foot of Couch street at 9 o'clock this
evening. She has aboard, in addition to
the 56 passengers from the San Fran
cisco steamer, about 40 of her own that
were taken aboard at the Coast harbors.
This number will make things somewhat
crowded aboard the vessel, but those who
went through the experience of the burn
ing ship off Crescent City will have, no
cause for complaint. 7

(Continued from Ninth Page.)
facilitate registration and the noting of
The city charter provides, section 23,
that tho registration act shall apply to
city elections, and further, "No person
who has registered for the previous
county election and has not changed his
residence need register again for the city
election. The County Clerk shall keep
open the registration books, lists, etc, for
a period of 80 days before the 15th day of
April next preceding the city election, and
during euch time shall register all per

were last closed have- become eligible to
vote at such election, on who, being enti
tled to vote, have failed to register and
shall enter changes of residences occur
ring since the last registration of all per
sons who shall apply therefor."
Its Provision Direct.
The direct primary law provides, "That
this law shall not operate to prevent any
additional registration of voters required
by the charter and ordinances of any
city or town within the provision of sec
Section 6 refers to nominations for
municipal elections. District Attorney
Manning and Messrs. Greene, and Lock
wood, arguing in support of the direct
primary law, contended that if repealed
the former primary law of 1901, and while
the act does not specifically mention the
year 1905, it is meant to refer to the city
election this year. The charter provision
for the opening of registration books
from March 16 to April 15 inclusive, and
the direct primary law provision concern
ing municipal elections, should be taken
together. Counsel argued that when the
registration books were opened, electors
could appear and have their party obliga
tion registered, the same as having a
change of registration effected.
City Attorney's Argument.
City Attorney McNary argued the other
side of the question. He admitted that
the direct primary law repealed the pri
mary act of 1S0L but contended that the
new act was not applicable until June,
1903, and quoted from It showing that 1906
was the first year referred to, except that
tho act provided for the opening of the
registration books for the 1904 Presiden
tial election. If there was no primary
law this year, the managers of the polit
ical parties, counsel said, could arrange a
method of holding primaries.
Tho following statements were made to
The Oregonian regarding the law:
County Clerk F. S. Fields: "I think
that the matter will rest with the decision
rendered by the Judges of the Circuit
Court, and that there will be no appeal.
I hold that the law Is applicable to the
June election. Under the city charter tho
books will have to open for registration
30 days prior to April 15. The books,
thereforo, will be open from March 15 to
April 15. All voters who have registered
heretofore will have to come again and
declare their party affiliation. This is
practically rereglstration. "We will have
blanks specially prepared for thoso who
registered before, and will be able to ex
pedite matters, as tho blank will simply
have to be filled out, giving affiliation and
other statistics necessary."
Representative "W. T. Muir: "I have
given the subject of the primary law and
its effect on the June election no thought.
I am not Interested in the matter in the
least. "Whether or not the law Is applic
able to the June election. I do not know,
as I have not studied the situation."
Does "Not Know Plans.
C H. Carey, ex-chairman Republican
County Central Committee: .I do not
know the plans of the Republican organ
ization regarding the primary law, ana
have nothing to say regarding whether
there will be a regular Republican ticket
placed In the field for the June election."
Representative S. B. Linthlcum: "I can
say nothing on. the subject of the' pri
maries and their effect on the June elec
tion. I have not talked with others re
garding the state of affairs, and have not
given tho matter enough thought to war
rant me In making a statemenL"
Will Be No Appeal.
City Attorney McNary: "I am confident
that there will be no appeal to the Su
preme Court from the decision of the Cir
cuit Court Judges regarding the primary
law. Mayor "Williams simply didn't care
to take the responsibility, and the matter
was referred to the Judges to settle a
friendly contest. Mayor "Williams and
myself agree to let this decision be de
cisive, and believe, therefore, that, in
view of this decision, the Taw Is applic
able to the June election. "We will let the
matter rest, so far as we are concerned,
as the Judges of the Circuit Court have

applies to the June election. I favor the

How Sickness Starts
Most forms of sickness start with the
Inside nerves. Indigestion, sour stom

diabetes, Brlghts disease liver irregu

ularities oil of these ailments, and the
ailments which they. In turn, bring on,
are due directly to derangements of cer
tain nerve centers.
Understand first that we have two en
tirely separate nerve systems. When we
walk or talk or act we call Into play a
certain set of nerves nerves which obey
our mental commands. That Is why the
arm can be raised or tho mouth opened,
or the eye Bhut at the slightest desire.
That Is why your fingers can delicately
pick up a pin one moment and bold a
heavy hammer the next.
But these are not the nerves we are to
There is another set of nerves which
control and govern and actuate the heart
and the stomach, tho kidneys and the
liver and all of the vital functions. Tou
cannot control these nerves. By no su
preme effort of mind can you make your
heart stop or start nor can you even
make It vary by a single beat a minute.
And so with the stomach and the -liver
and the kidneys and the bowels they are
automatic they do their work at a cer
tain set speed, whether you are awake or
asleep whether you will it or not.
It is on these inside nerves that life
and health depends. So long as these
nerves perform their proper duties we are
weU and strong. "When they fall, we
know It by the Inevitable symptoms
stomach, heart, Uver, kidney troubles. And
these troubles have no other origin ever
than In these same nerves. For the stom
ach, the heart, the liver, the kidneys,
have no power of their own. no self-control.
They owe their every Impulse to
the Inside nerves. The nerves are the
masters. The organs their slaves.
But the most Interesting part about the
inside nerves is the bond of sympathy
whlch exists Between all centers and
branches of .this great automatic system.
The center, which, for Instance, con
trols the stomach, is known to science as
the "solar plexus." The heart center is
called the "cardiac plexus." The kidney
center, the "renal plexus." Yet It is a
well-known fact that In prizefights, a
solar plexus blow Instantly stops the
heart, although Its usual operations con
