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. The score: K H E Portland 1 000100002 5 2 Oakland 1 0000000 0 1 7 0 Batteries Garvin.

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. Olympla Won Two Games. ABERDEEN, Wash.. Aug. S. (Special.)

ACROSS STANFORD CAMPUS Trustees of University Give Right of Way for Railroad. STANFORD UNIVERSITT, Cat, Aug. 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 company. The new road will give the university community easy access to all the towns south of Mayfleld and north of Menlo Park. ( DRINK NEARLYCOSTS LIFE 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. Juries. Census Shows Little Increase. CENTRALIA, Wash., Aug. 5. (Special.)

MERCHANTS NOW HESITATE 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 freight. 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. BACKERS THERE WITH COIN 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 Willamette. 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. Marino Notes. On August 3 the Portland & Asiatic liner Arabia reached Hongkong from Portland and Japan. T. S. McRath, the agent of Girvin & Byre and other shipping- firms, left last night for San Francisco on a business trip. The steamer Kona, 642 tons. Is listed to come to Portland from San Pedro for lumber. She belongs to the fleet of Hind, Rolph & Co. Their last vessel here was the barkentine Kohala. Yesterday tho stcamthip Ilford moved down through the bridges to the Victoria dolphins, wJiere the re mainder of her lumber cargo is being loaded. She will leave down tomor row or Tuesday.

Famous Joko Recalled. 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." in coin HOPS POOR YARDS AROUND EUGENE SUFFER FROM DROUTH. Weather Unfavorable Since the Seaaoa Opened Output Will Be Light. EUGENE. Or.. Aug. 5. (Special.)-There Is no doubt that many hopyards are suffering from the drouth, even though the bottom lands -In this vicinity are recognized a better suit ed to retaining moisture than any other on the Coast, Estimates on the crop are betas' made by growers and dealers, and the universal opinion Is that the crop will .not be a. large I one at bett, while some who are considered pessimistic ray the quantity will not be as great In the county a? a year ago, even though there is considerable increase- In acreage. Conditions have not been right for a large crop at any time during the season. Cold weather during April and May. lack of mois ture early, missing hills. Irregular growth, early and vigorous attack by the- lice, and the extreme dry and hot weather of the paet two weeks, all have had their effect In pre venting what could be considered good develop jnt of the hop. If the hop are not small awl light, all the growers will be agreeably surprised. A considerable quantity ot old hops are still held by growers here, and they are evincing no haite about putting them on the market. With the present prospect here, which is. considered more nearly normal than any other section of the country, and discouraging reports from other hop districts, the growers are apparently willing to take chances for a high market price.

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 partment of State at the ceremonies In cident to the reception, boarded tho Mayflower from a launch about ten minutes after the arrival of the Presi dent. He- and the President chatted a few minutes before It was .reported to tho President that the Japansee en voys wire about to come aboard tho Mayflower. V 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 tions which had resulted In the pleas 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 formal. Xo addresses were delivered. Calls Takahlra "Comrade." Baron Komura then presented to the President the 12 members of his suit 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.

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.
