SAX FRANCISCO, Aug. 5 (Special.)
In the fifth Inning today McCredle and
Householdor rapped out a hit each and
McCredle scored for the second time,
giving Portland all her runs, which were
sufficient to win from Oakland. One of
McCredle's runs was on a four-baggor.
The Oaklands trotted Francks around the
bases In the first Inning, but that was all.
Today's same was one of the best of
the season. It was close throughout, and
both Gates and Iberg were In good form.
Portland made a switch by retiring Cates
and throwing Garvin In the box at the
close and giving Conrad, a bush leaguer,
a try behind the bat. Conrad Is from the
Presidio baseball club, and has been
signed by McCredle. He Is a good utility
man, and will add strength to the team.
He Is a fair catcher, can play any Infield
position, and is a hitter who can be de
pended upon.
The batting throughout the game, out
side of two Innings, was weak. Portland
played a nice fielding game. Jim McDon
ald reappeared as an umpire, doubling up
with Bray.

Hoffman Bought by Portland.
Inflcldcr L. C. Hoffman, late of the Chi
cago National League Club, has beon pur
chased from that club by Manager Mc
Credle, and will arrive in Portland to
morrow. He is a fine player and is rated
as one of the cleverest Infielders in tlie
profession. Hoffman played third base
and shortstop 'for Chicago when Jimmy
Cosey and Joe Tinker were on the dis
abled list, and his work was highly
praised in the Windy City. The signing
A of Hoffman probably means the release
of Lou Runkle, unless the local manager
should decide to try the third baseman
out in the box. The new man will play
Ids first game for Portland against Los
Angeles Tuesday.

Trustees of University Give Right of
Way for Railroad.
5. (Special.) A party of surveyors is now
at work laying out a right of way
through the Stanford University campus
for an electric railroad which is to Join
the electric lines of San Mateo and San
Jose. This is the first time that a fran
chise through or near the Stanford estate
has been granted for an electric car line,
for tho reason that Mrs. Stanford person
ally objected to any such improvements
being made upon the roads running
through the campus. Tho board of trus
tees has taken a different view of tho
matter and is allowing tho present survey
to be made.
According to the work now being done,
the new electric line will approach the
Stanford estate from the south and fol
low the road which runs along the foot
hills west of Lake Laguna and the Palo
Alto stock farm. This road divides the
original Stanford property at Palo Alto.
It was formerly a right of way across
the land of Senator Stanford, but has
been open for public travel for so many
years that It Is not probable that the
boa! of trustees could prevent an elec
tric road company from gaining a right
of way, even If it desired to stop the
The new road will give the university
community easy access to all the towns
south of Mayfleld and north of Menlo
Park. (
Oregon Express Passenger Belated
Hangs to Vestibule for Miles.
MARYSVILLE, CaL. Aug. 5. (Special.)
C S. Darling, a. passenger on the south
bound Oregon Express, fell from the
train at Live Oak early this morning and
narrowly escaped death as the train was
moving at the rate of 40 miles an-hour.
-Darling got off at Gridlcy to get a drink
and as the train started be caught the
railing of the closed vestibule of the Pull
man and clung there for ten miles until
he had nearly reached Live Oak, when he
dropped off, too fatigued to hold longer In
his uncertain position. He knows little
of what happened to him, but when he
recovered some time afterwards he was
some distance from the track, torn and
bleeding. He managed7 to reach Live Oak
and took another train- for Marysvlllo,
where his physicians attended his In.

Only Drawback to Independ
ent Boats to California.
Haxrimun Line; Charging Higher
Freight Rates Now, Is Well
Patronized by Shippers Be
cause of Regularity.
There has beon no indication that
the San Francisco & Portland Steam
ship Company will rcduoe Its new"
north-bound rates on freight, and
Portland merchants are skirmishing
around to find a cheaper means of get
ting freight carried from California.
What has always been the drawing
card of the Harrlman line to shippers
is the regularity of its: service. For
instance, most of the fresh vegetables
received here during tho Winter comes
on these steamers. Front-street men
could calculate almost to an hour when
the produce would arrive. By other
steamers there was much guesswork.
' Very much cheaper carriers are the
steam schooners which come north for
lumber. They are willing' to take
freight for little more than the cost
of handling, as tholr profits are made
from the south-bound lumber cargoes.
But there was always the uncertainty
as to when they would sail, and still
more uncertainty as to when they
would arrive. Then there, are steam
ers like the Redondo, Czarina, Despatch
and Leggctt, making periodical visits.
They usually bring north a quantity
of low-class freight.
The Roanoke and F. A. Kllburn ar
rive and depart with fair regularity,
but the best the Roanoke can give is a
14-day service, as she runs to San
Pedro, after stopping at San Francisco
and Eureka. North-bound, she also
stops at Coos Bay. The Kllburn makes
these stops, but turns back at the Bay
City. She has a limited capacity, how
ever, and is well supplied with way
Since the new tariff went into effect,
Augut 1 and the wholesale grocery
houses, in particular, found their
freight rates from . California greatly
Increased, the demand for better serv
ice at lower rates has rapidly grown.
The grocers have requested a reduc
tion on several lines of goods, and other
classes of shippers will probably take
similar action when their August
freight bills are presented.
Owners of independent steamers raise
the cry that Portland merchants will
not patronize the steamers outside of
the Harrlman lino when the opportun
ity offers. If a five-day service was
maintained, however, and an arrival on
time could be depended upon. It would
undoubtedly be another story. The
owners of the steamer Roanoke are
considering placing another vessel on
this run, but first want, the assurance
of local -patronage.
Friends of Telegraph and Spencer
Would Bet on Decisive Race.
Until tho Telegraph has a- decisive
brush with the Chas. R. Spencer, the
water front will remain undecided
which boat is the faster. The Puget
Sound boat has a strong reputation as
a flyer, but over half of tho men along1
the beach hero still pin their faith to
the Spencer.
lI won't try to make arrangements
for a race, but I will race if the Tele
graph is going the same was," said
Captain Spencer yesterday. "Captain
Scott told me he would like to race if
ho had a 200-pound boiler Instead of
one allowed 160 pounds."
That other reputed crack boat, the
Telephone, still waits at the Haseltlne
dock. Every day steam Is raised In her
big boilers, but unless she makes a
move soon the report that she has been
paid a subsidy to remain there will
seem to have good foundation.
If n race was arranged between the
Telegraph and Spencer some big sums
of good money would be staked on the
outcome. If tho three fastest boats
get on the river at the same time, it
will seem a revival of the halcyon days
of steamboatlng on the Columbia and
Good Longshoremen Scarce.
Good men to load ships are scarce
these days, because many 'of the best
longshoremen have left the city for
the Summer, taking their families Into
the country for an outing, while the
men themselves find temporary Jobs in
farm or field. Consequently there have
been many delays in loading lumber
cargoes at the mills. A number of
minor strikes occurred on the steam
ship IlforeT while at the Inman-Poulsen
mJJl, and the men working in the hold
have more than once left the Pytho
meno at the North Pacific mill.
As the O. R. & N. Company employs
its own men. transferring: them from
one dock to another, the Oriental
steamers suffer comparatively few de
lays, and the California steamers are
worked with the same men.

London Sketch.
At the Associated Booksellers' dinner In
Edinburgh the other week a story Illus
trating one of Sydney Smith's most fa
mous Jokes was recalled. All the world
knows iydaey Smith's raying that it re
quired a surgical operation to get a Joke
Into a Scotchman's head. But In 1S44 he
supplied a Scotsman with a consolatory
interpretation of this dictum. When Will
lam Chambers, the publisher, was visiting
London Jn ISM. there drove up to the door
of his lodgings In Greek street, Soho, an
old family coach drawn by a pair of sleek
horses. From this descended an aged
gentleman, who, from his shovel hat and
black gaiters, was seen to be an eccles
iastical dignitary. He was ushered In and
his name announced, "the Rev. Sydney
Smith." "You are surprised, possibly, at
my visit." said Sydney. "There Is nothing
at all strange about It. The originator of
the Edinburgh Review has cons to see
the originator of the Edinburgh Journal."
Smith talked about old times in Edin
burgh. He made somo little Inquiry about
Chambers own early efforts, and he
laughed when Chambers reminded him of
a saying of his own about studying on a
little oatmeal. "Ah, labora, labora," ho
said, sententious'. "How that word ex
presses the character of your country!"
"Well, wo do sometimes work pretty
hard," observed Chambers: but, for all
that, we can relish a pleasantry as much
as our neighbors. You must have seen
that the Scotch have a considerable fund
of humor." "Oh, by all means," said Syd
ney Smith. "You arc an lmmensly funny
people, but you need a little operating
upon to let the fun out. I know of no In
strument so effectual for tho purpose as
the corkscrew."

with evident pleasure on the beauty ot
tho day.
Meanwhile the cruiser Tacoma, with
the Jupanese envoys and their suite on
board, had arrived from New York,
making the run in two hours and
three-quarters. The ship came to
anchor at 12:30 o'clock about half a
mile from the Mayflower.
Almost 'at the same time the naval
yacht Sylph, with Third Assistant Sec
retary of State Herbert H. D. Pelrce
on board, also came to anchor a short
distance from the Mayflower. Mr.
Pelrce, who. In the absence of -Secretary
Root, was to represent the De

cident to the reception, boarded tho
Mayflower from a launch about ten
minutes after the arrival of the Presi

a few minutes before It was .reported

Reception Is Informal.
Scarcely had the report been made
before the guns of the Tacoma began
to Are the salute of 19 guns as the
plenipotentiaries and their suite went
over the side.
As the Japanese mission, headed by
Baron Iomura and Minister Takahlra,
ascended the gangway, all attired in
black frock coats and shiny silk hatsg
the band sounded three ruffles and then
played a march. At the head of the
gangway Commander -Winslow re
ceived the envoys, and as they stepped
to the deck they were greeted by Mr.
Pelrce. Thoy were escorted immedi
ately to tho cabin, where the President
was awaiting them.
The reception was brief, and was as
devoid of formality as the nature of
the occasion would permit. Baron
Komura and Minister Takahlra shook
hands with the President, the cordial
ity of the greeting- being unmistakable.
As the representative of the Emper
or, Baron Komura then extended his
thanks to President Roosevelt, and
through him to the American people,
for the Interest they had manifested
In the pending peace negotiations, ex
pressing; particularly, his gratitude to
the President for the friendliness he
had shown In initiating the 'negotia

are they were to have today. The
President assured Baron Komura that
he had found great pleasura In taking
tne steps toward what he hoped would
be a permanent peace between the two
great nations. The exchanges. If they
may be so termed, were entirely' In

The President srave uartlculRrH- pnriiini
greetings to Commander Takahlra, "the
navai auacne 01 tne Japanese legation,
addressing him as "comrade" and to
Mr. Hanahara, the third secretary of
the legation, with both of whom he is
personally acquainted. The President
then introduced the envoys to the
Army and Navy ofllcers prosent, after
which, with Barjon Komura and Minis
ter Takahlra. he retired to an inner
cabin for a brief consultation prior
to the arrival Of thn TttlK.olnn mlnilnn
The cruiser Chattanooga, with the Rus
sian envoys on hoard, anchored a third of
a mile from the Mayflower at 1:50 P. M..
and 15 minutes later the Chn.ttnnnn?no 11
gun salute announced the departure ot
tne Kussians. A rew minutes afterward
the form of M. WIttc, Russian chief pleni
potentiary, appeared at the starboard
gangway of the Mayflower. He was fol
lowed br Baron Rosen. Russian Ambassa
dor and second peace envoy, and eight
members of hlssulte. They were received
precisely an tne Japanese had been, and
they, too, were ushered Into the cabin,
where the President was waiting to re
ceive them.
Russians and Japs 3Iect.
During the reception of the Russian
mission tho Japanese envoys and the
members of their suites were In one of
the forward cabins.
With notable cordiality. President Roose
velt shook hands with M. WItte and
Baron Roaen, exchanging with them In
formal but hearty personal felicitations.
After receiving the members of the suite,
and presenting all In turn to his personal
guests, the President then brought the
two sets of envoys togetaer, introducing
them formally to one another. It was
a notable scene, a3 the diminutive Baron
Komura shook hands with the gigantic
Wltte at the instance of the President.
The greetings of the members of the
two special missions were distinctly for
mal, but not the slightest suggestion of
enmity was shown on either side. Nei
ther by word nor by action did they
show, even by Indication anything except
utmost cordiality.
Careful to avoid any strain. President
Roosevelt as soon as possible after tho
Introduction suggested that the party pro
ceed to tho main saloon, where luncheon
was In waiting. '
Tho President himself led the party,
followed In order by M. Wltte, Baron
Komura. Ambassador Rosen and Min
ister Takahlra. Even the formation of
this llttlo procession Involved a difficult
diplomatic problem, but it was agreed
that the President solved It admirably.
Xiunchcon Eaten Standing.
Although tho luncheon was served with
the guests standing, the President es
corted the envoys to chairs In one cor
ner of vthe saloon, and In half a minute,
through tact and delicacy the whdle party
was engaged In animated conversation
over their dishes.
The conversation generally was In
French, as M. WItto speaks very llttlo
English. Baron Rosen and Baron Komura
chatted as though they had been llfolong
friends, and Minister Takahlra, at no
tlmo particularly communicative, entered
Into' the conversation with zest and inter
eat. Before the luncheon had proceeded far.
President Roosevelt rose from his chair
and turning to tho assemblage raised his
hand for sllnce. In an Instant there was
a hush. Bowing to the envoys, President
Roosevelt said: , .
Gentlemen: X propose a toast to which
there will be no answer and to which I ask
you to drink In silence, standing. I drink
to the welfare and prosperity of the sover
eigns and peoples of the two great nations
whose representatives have met one another
on this ship. It U my earnest hope and
prayer In the interest of not only the two
great powers, but of all mankind, that a
just and lasting peace may speedily be con
cluded between them.
The toast was drunk as the President
requested. In profound silence, but In the
hum of conversation which followed, little
was heard but enthusiastic comment on
the character of the President's expres
sion. M. Wltte and Baron Komura both
cordially thanked him.
President Leaves Envoys.
At the conclusion of the luncheon, after
tho President had posed with the four
envoys for an official phdtograph. ar
rangements were made for the President's
departure for Sagamore Hill. He took
cordial leave of the envoys and their
suites, shook hands with his personal
guests on board, and to" the music of tho
band and to the roar of the Mayflower's
guns, went over the side and entered his
launch. His nag was hauled down, and
a fow minutes later, at 2:55, he was land- i

Boise River nt Low Stage.
BOISE, Idaho, Aug. 5. (Special.) The
remarkably low stage -of water In the
Boise River is causing threatened losses
of thousands of dollars' worth of crops
In the Boise Valley. Never in the his
tory of the state has the water been so
low at this time of year. The UDner
canals have been using tho water and
the lower ones are dry. There will be no
second crop of hay, and farmers fear
they cannot keep their meadows alive.
Judge Stewart has made a sweeptnar
order to have nearly all the water taken 1
from tho upper canals and give the lower I
ones a chance.
