FAIR GETS LION'S SHARE
Association's Profits Close to Quarter-Million
Everybody Who Got
Inside Gates Contributed
to the Exchequer. ,
SEATTLE. Wash.. Sept. 14. (Spe
cial.) The King County Fair Associa
tion lias cleaned "p so much money
on the race meet that closed today
that it makes dizzy the heads of those
who try to estimate all the profits. Not
less than a quarter of a million has
been made by the fair association, for
the expenses were comparatively light,
while the receipts have been enormous.
The admissions alone, it is roughly
estimated, will pay the expenses of
the meet The association doubled the
price of admission this year and the
racetrack fans doubled the attendance
right on top of the elevated prices. On
the big days the crowds have been
enormous and on the average occasions
it has been a rare day 'when the at
tendance fell below 1500. And this
continued for 67 days of racing.
From the admissions to the cabbage
patch in the center of the track there
was no single thing at the Meadows
this year that did not yield a profit.
The systematic effort of the fair asso
. elation to get all the money that could
be made was shown by the fact that
the ground inside the track was under
cultivation, and that it proved to be
one of the best truck farms In tho
county. Even the grass on the outside
was cut and sold for fodder.
Reaped Profit From AH Bets.
The fair association sold the pro
gramme privilege, collected, so it is
related, $13,500 for the bar privilege
that did not last out the meet, had a
restaurant privilege leased, rented a
cigar stand, sold the horsemen every
bit of fodder they gave their animals,
and shared In the selling war profits.
By far the greatest profit was from
the betting ring. Every book that cut
i i paid $20 a race for the privilege
of selling pools, and as there were six
races for five days a week and seven
on Saturdays and holidays, the average
of 23 books kept up during the meet,
paid the association more than $200,
000 for the betting privileges.
One-half of the amount paid for a
horse sold after a selling race in ex
cess of the valuation placed by the
association went to the track men.
Suppose an owner entered a horse in a
$300 selling race a'nd It won. Some
one bid it up and the owner kept the
horse at $500. He had to pay the track
association $100, or half the amount
bid over $300, for the privilege of
keeping his own horse. If someone
else got it, the owner received au
extra $100 above the price fixed in
the race, but the association collected
its bit, too. It is a curiously Interesting
fact that a selling war started early
in the meet, and it continued unabat
ed until the close of the racing. And
every time tierce competition over
horse resulted, the Fair Association
saw more money ' sinking into the
Losing Game for Gamblers.
During the meet millions were bet in
the ring, but comparatively few of
the bettors are ahead of the game. A
few wise ones have made some money.
The Jockeys' combination hit the books
hard for a few days until Manders
and Gross were ruled off. A few of
the horsemen are better off tbtin when
they arrived, but the average run of
bettors Is behind the game.
When a book has to pay $120 a day
for tho privilege of' laying odds on
the card, it can be set down that it
opens up at least $200 loser, for em
ployes are paid $10 to $15 apiece.
Either the betting public has got to
make up this amount or the book has
got to write off a loss. It is not of
record that many of the books went
out of business, but if any of them
did fall there was another in sight to
open up immediately.
Bookmakers in the know claim that
. the lowest day's betting dumped
$175,000 into the ring. Without a
careful check-up of every book, such
as could not be made In any circum
stances, no one can tell absolutely
.what percentage of this amount was
paid out again. But it Is a fact that
very few of the bookmakers are ahead
of the game. Some of the wisest of
them have made money, but more are
losers to the meet.
With the average bookmakers los
ing, the public out the thousands paid
for admissions and the betting losses,
there isn't a man who has patronized
the track who doesn't know that the
meet has returned its big profit to the
RUGBY" CAMPAIGN IS OPENED
Stanford Students Are Enthusiastic
Over Possibilities of the Game.
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Sept. 14.
(Special.) The second Rugby cam
paign Is In full swing at Stanford Uni
versity. During the entire Summer
Coaches Lanagun and Presley have
been over tne Pacific Ocean studying
the English game as played by its
greatest exponents In Australia and
New Zealand. They have returned
well versed In all the subtle points of
the sport and full of enthusiasm over
the possibilities of the game. The
first rally of the season broke all
records for attendance and spirit. At
the close of the speeches more than 163
men came forward and signed their
names to the training slips.
Trainer "Dad" Moulton, Lanagan,
Presley and Captain Koerner were the
speakers of the evening and all re
ceived a tumultuous welcome. Lana
gan was the last man to address the
rally and when this veteran coach,
who has never led a Stanford varsity
to defeat, stepped upon the platform,
the audience was fairly swept off its
feet with enthusiasm.
"I think that three things go to
make up a team." said Lanagan, "and
these are: Spirit, condition, and, last
ly and of least importance, knowledge
of the game. It is up to you. Cali
fornia has three weeks' start of us.
If everyone does as he is told and
does it with the right spirit you can't
lose. But if you don't do that you
can't win. You have a big advantage
In playing on your own field. We de
fended it once before to tho tune of
12 to 6. Do it again and send those
fellows back where they came from
4 with another beatlng"
The first practices have been light.
but faster ' work than has been in
dulged in past early seasons was gone
through last night, owing to the fact
that tne freshman intercollegiate game
with the University of California is
but four weeks away, the contest be
ing scheduled for October 12. Prac
tically none of the entering class know
anything of Rugby and with the limit
ed time before them the coaches will
have no easy task In whipping into
'shape a fast and able baby team.
The candidates have been upon the
field but three times so far, and It .is
difficult to say just what kind of ma
terial there is among the 70 freshmen.
They appear, however, unusually
heavy and the final 15 should be a
husky one. They have plenty of spirit
and seem very willing.
The three practices have been al
most entirely given over to the drill
ing of fundamentals; punting, kicking
and picking up the ball.

The United States Engineers' dispatch boat, Palouse, which will act as a tender for the work now being done on the Upper Columbia and
Snake Rivers, has been completed and was given a trial trip on the Willamette River yesterday. On her initial trip the boat made 17 Si miles
an hour. She will be Bhipped by train to Riparia and will go into commission on the ( Snake River immediately. The Palouse was constructed
under the personal supervision of Colonel S. W. Roessler and Assistant Engineer D. B. Ogden. She is 32 feet long, ihi feet beam and draws 23
inches of water. She is equipped .with a four-cylinder Standard auto-marine engine and develops 25 horsepower. She was built at the John
son yards in Portland. Four engineer crews are working on the Snake and Columbia Rivers. The Palouse will operate between the four camps.

Oregon Agricultural College refuses
to come here and Hemphill, in turn,
refuses to go to Corvallis, so that game
is off. The University Student Associ
ation is several hundred dollars in debt,
and it Is the object of the managers to
have as many games at home as possi
ble so as to replenish, if possible, the
depleted exchequer. For. this reason
the team will leave the campus only
once this Fall, to play . Whitman at
The old feud between the State Col
lege of Washington and the university
is still on. Pullman made overtures to
tne university for a game and attempts
were made to perfect arrangements.
Both institutions now have a grievance,
and it is not likely that a game will be
played. The university objects to Pull
man's playing preparatory students on
its team, and Pullman in turn objects
to the university's playing special stu
dents. For this reason the manage
ment cannot get together.
There is strong possibility of playing
the Chemawa Indians and Willamette
University, but nothing is certain.
Seattle 6; Tacoina 3.
SEATTLE, Wash., 14! (Special.) Seat-'
tie and Tacoma are fighting It out for
second place so hard that three games
will be played here tomorrow, one in the
morning and two in the afternoon. Dug
dale believes he has Tacoma faded and
he wants every game he can grab from
Mike Lynch. If rain or something else
Interferes with one of his three games,
he figures it can be played on Monday,
and by trebling the output of baseball
on Sunday he is not only taking extra
chances against the weather man, but is
jumping onto a cripple.
The Cubs nosed out today's game be
cause they played better ball. At that
there were two evidences of stupid base
running presented; one when the bases
were full and two men were caught nap
pin on throws about the diamond and
again when Arbogast had oceans of time
to score from third on an outfield fly,
but failed to do so. During the day. Coy
drew two home-runs and a single. It
was Coy's home-run that drove Hlckey

- Albany Horse's Good Record.
ALBANY. Or., Sept. 14. (Special.)
Albany horsemen are very much pleased
with the showing made by Oregon Babe,
a local horse, at the Roseburg fair. She
has succeeded in winning two good pacing
events in good time. Oregon Babe was
defeated here recently in a race against
John A. Crawford, another Albany horse,
in which about $1500 changed hands. Her
backers in that event now feel that she
has redeemed the poor showing then
made. Qregon Babe is owned by J. D.
Isom, of Albany, and will appear In pac
ing events at the State Fair next week.

NEWPORT, Or., Sept. 14. (Spe

The trip is over one of the wildest
STATES ENGINEERS LAUNCH, PAL.OUSE, MAKES FAST TIME ON TRIAL
sctlons in the state, and through miles
of territory over which there are no
avenues, of communication except the
rough trails of the mountains. Coming
around the old trail over Cape Look
out, where the heavy brush overhangs
the path, Mr. arid Mrs. Augur lost their
way. Larkness came on and they wan
dered about aimlessly for lours, finally
reaching the south side of the Cape
where they spent the remainder of the
night around a campflre of beachwood
without food to eat or blankets to
cover them. A worse experience still
was to fall to' the lot of" the couple at
Ingall's Cape near the .mouth of Sal
mon River, where the trail was again
lost and the pair went for two days
and a night with only two sandwiches
upon which to subsist, until they at
length found their way to the mouth
of Salmon River.
From Salmon River to Newport no
difficulties were encoutered, and the
rest of the trip passed off without
mishap. The entire distance covered
was in the neighborhood of 150 miles.
Mrs. Augur, who stood the trip very
well, is perhaps the only woman who
ever made this journey on foot.

AFTER THEIR EXPENSE MONEY
School Superintendents AH Want a
Whack at $200 Fund.
SALEM. Or., Sept. 14. (Special.) Since
the new bfanket-expense law was adopted
by the last Legislature, allowing County
School Superintendents $200 traveling ex
penses in making their tours of inspection
over their district, all of the County Su
perintendents who had been provided with
a lesser amount previously and by special
legislation are trying to work out some
means by which they may benefit or come
within the purview of the latter act.
This afternoon Attorney-General Craw
ford answered a query upon the subject
from Clerk G. B. Iiamb, for County Super
intendent W. W. Wylie, of Tillamook
County, which carried disappointment
with it. In 1906 the salary of the Super
intendent of Tillamook was increased
from $800 to $1000, but it was upon the
strict understanding and provision that it
was to include all traveling expenses, and
now Clerk Lamb writes to ask if the act
of the Legislature of 1907 did not take
precedence over the previous act, or
operate to nullify it. He was answered in
Recently a communication was received
from Superintendent G. W. Denman, of
Benton County, who wanted to knoV
whether or not he could draw to the full
amount of $200, even though there was a
special act passed by the last Legislature
fixing his salary at $800, with an expense
allowance of $150, but the blanket act ex
cludes specifically from Its provisions the
County Superintendent of Umatilla, who
was also given an Increase in salary under
special act, and provides that where spe
cial legislation has already been enacted
covering the expenses of Superintendents
Its effect does not apply.
CORT SUES PORTLAND ARTIST

SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 14.-(Special.)
John Cort, the well known theatrical
manager, has filed a suit In the Superior
Court against William Grabach, a Port
land painter, to recover $4,300 because of
the alleged failure of the defendant to
properly paint the scenery that was to
be used In the production of the Blethen
Girard opera "The Alaskan" in New

reached the Knickerbocker Theater it
was found that the work was of such In

be used. The plaintiff then states that
he was compelled to have the work done
in New York and that if cost him $2700.
The complaint says the work was
contracted for at $1940 and , that Cort
paid Grabach $1600 on account, and judg

Judge Snell Approves Conviction of
Rainey for Assault.
TACOMA. Wash., Sept. 14. (Special.)
William Rainey was convicted last night
of attempted criminal assault on a woman
at Buckley. Such was the feeling against
Rainey by citizens of Buckley that, had
the Jury freea him, he would probably
have been roughly handled. Three citi

from 4 o'clock until the Jury came in
late at night. They are said to have
been armed. Today Judge Snell said:
"It would have been an outrage to
have acquitted the fellow, and a verdict
of that kind would have called the courts
Into disrespect and no doubt would have
resulted in violence at the hands of a

that they returned a verdict such as they
did, although. In my Judgment,! it should
have been on a more serious charge."

THE METROSTYLE THEM
ODIST PIANOLA is the latest
and the most important devel

the Pianola as an interior fea
ture, in the Weber, Steck,
Wheelock and Stuyvesant makes,
is sold at $550 to $1050. Con
