START TO PRACTICE. Four of McCredle's Players Begin Training. 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.

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 President Bert. 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 New League. SPOKANE, March 4.

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. Oregon City Team Beaten. The Portland All Stars defeated the Ore gon City team last evening at the Port land Bowling Alleys, after brilliant play ing by both sides.

ELEVEN FOR ORIENT Big Steamer Fleet Will Be Dis patched From Here. WILL CARRY OUT 50,000 TONS Passengers of the Ill-Fated Oregon Due In Portland Tonight Re markable Towing Feat Sue 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 sea carriers!. 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 parture the transport Sheridan will be due with the Fourteenth Regiment from the Philippines, which Is changing sta tions with the Nineteenth. The Sheridan 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 of oU. ALUANCE DUE TONIGHT. Brings Up Oregon's Passengers In Addition to Her Own. The steamer Alliance, which Is bringing up the passengers of the ill-fated Oregon. sailed north from Coos Bay yesterday morning, and is due at her dock at the 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 Barkentine's Busy Nine Months. ASTORIA, Or.. March 4. (Special.) The American barkentlne Kolo Head, which arrived in last evening from Honolulu, reports an uneventful passage of 16 days.

UPHOLD THE LAW. (Continued from Ninth Page.) facilitate registration and the noting of party affiliation. 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 sons who since tho registration books 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 tion 6." 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 decided." John "Van Zante. chairman of Demo cratic County Central Committee! "The primary law la -valid, and in my opinion applies to the June election. I favor the law. though It Is cumbersome, and I be lieve a much plainer and more harmoni ous law could have been enacted. I, do not. think, in view of present circum stances, that the regular Republican or crantxallfln will -not a ticket la th Cold. MONTAVILLA 5-ACRE TRACTS At Montavilla Station, on 0. R. & N.

As for a conven tion, there Is no necessity for one before or after the primaries." HOW NOMINATIONS ARE MADE What the Primary Law Requires of Political Parties. The direct primary law having been declared to be now in force, an election will be held under its provisions on May 6, which is 30 days before the Portland municipal election. The Judges and clerks appointed to serve at the city election are required to of ficiate at the primary election. It is held under the general provisions of the Australian ballot law, and tho pre cinct boundaries are the same as in the city election. The tickets used are the same as those used in general elec tions, except that each political party Is designated by a color. No person is entitled to vote at the election who has not ' registered and who also has caused his political party affiliation to be noted oposlte his reg istration In the remarks column. Elect ors can have the latter done by ap pearing at the County Clerk's office when the books are opened from March 15 to April 15, lnoluslve, next. "When a voter applies for a ticket he must give bis name and that of his political party and receives a ticket for the candidates of that party and none other. Vacancies in nominations- caused by withdrawals, deaths, etc., are filled by the proper officers of political parties. A political party is described in the act as an affiliation of electors repre senting a political party or organiza tion which at the next general election preceding for candidate for Repre sentative In Congress received at least 25 per cent of the vote cast for that office in the state. The Republican and Democratic par ties are the only ones that polled such a percentage of votes at the last Con gressional election, and consequently are the only parties to which the di rect primary law applies. " The Prohibition, Socialist, Populist or other political parties not affected by the act can make nominations as before under the general election laws by an assembly of 100 electors by peti tion. A citizens' assembly of 100 elect ors for a citizens' ticket can be hold as before. No person except he receive the di rect primary nomination for an office can be placed on tho ticket as a candi date for election to that office under the name Republican or Democratic Inde pendents can no longer use the term Independent Republican, or Democrat, but the word Independent alone. A nominating petition must be signed by at least 2 per cent of the electors of a party, all of whom must have reg istered and declared their party affilia tions, and for a nomination for a muni cipal office the signers shall include electors residing In at least one-fifth of the voting precincts. Before the circulation of a petition How Sickness Starts n Most forms of sickness start with the Inside nerves. Indigestion, sour stom ach, heartburn, dyspepsia weak kidneys, diabetes, Brlghts disease liver irregu larities Heart irregularities Bowel irreg 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 consider here. 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.

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.
