Y. M. C. .A. Defeated in Annual
Salem-Portland Relay.
2iedskin Runners Know Every Foot
of Rouds Last Year's Time Cut.
Association Athletes Beaten
24 Minutes, 18 Seconds.
Cutting the record made last year by
ten minutes, the Chemawa Indian School
won th a relay race from Salem to Port
land by 24 minutes IS s conds. From the
moment that Governor Chamberlain start
ed the men at Sal m till the winner
handed the Governor's letter to Mayor
Ltine at the Association building the
race was only another exemplification of
system beating mere brawn. Where the
T. M. C. A. had the men and the ability
to win, the Indians had the organization
and training that enabled their men to
accomplish the race In the record time of
5 hours 16 minutes. I
Starting from Salem on the tick of I
o'clock Cartozian and Haight set out for i
the first change post at Chemawa. Haight I
made a record run last year, beating his j
opponent by eight minutes, and although .
Haight made the run of five and one-
half miles in 32 minutes Cartozian was
only 3 minutes and 46 seconds behind.
Sanderson took up the Indian trail and
Wettcrborg took things In hand for the
Association and although putting up a,
good run lost a further 1:15,. making
6 minuted to .the . bad when
Keys took a hand In affairs. Keys,
a smart little runner of a slight type,
took a couple of minutes oft hia op
ponent, Johns, thus putting up the best
record for the Association men.
Backus was scarcely up to his usual
style, allowing; a few more minutes to
be captured from him, while Vosper,
through a bad start, threw away val
uable time. As a substitute Vosper
entered the race, without training at
all and credit is due him for having
made the run. Apart from Haight, the
Indians are proud of the performance
of Gondy, whose hill-climbing was mar
velous, both up and down Elk Hock
he went at a pace his opponent could
not approach. Gondy handed over the
Governor's letter to Amos Smoker, who
made quick time, right into the asso
ciation building, ' while his opponent,
Hessemer, had been barely able to make
a getaway from Riverview. Although
beaten before he started, Hessemer put
up a fine run and was greeted by sev
eral hundred people from the street
and from the association balconies and
surrounding windows.
Smoker arrived quite unexpected and
Mayor Lane was barely in time to re
ceive at his hands the missive he was
bearing, and which proved the race to
have been run throughout. From that
time until Hessemer arived the crowd
steadily grew. It was evidently due to
the fact that the spectators believed hJm
the winner that he got the tremendous
reception he received.
The organization of the Indians was
without fault. Every man knew the
route well and the entire course had
been traversed by the men several
times. That their men knew every
mud-hole on the way and how to avoid
it Was the claim of the Indian iM that
Y.-M. C. A. men admit the claim to be 1
well-rounded. Erery.-man was 'tarried
out to his position by auto or buggy.
The majority of the men were taken
along in the big auto following the
race and dropped Just In time to make
the respective changes.
At the Chemawa School the directors
extended hospitality to the two associa
tion men at the Salem end and put them
undiir the same training regime as were
their own men On the morning of the
race the Indians supplied the Y. M. C. A.
men. as well as their own, with a
schedule of instructions, and altogether
proved how superior was their organi
zation. Many of the Y. M. C. A. men had
great difficulty in reaching their posi
tions by car and on foot, and It was
only by the courtesy of Henry Hewitt
with a 2:40 trotter and 'buggy that Lau,
the Oswego relay, was able to get to
Ills post at all. Lack of interest taken
by the ruling powers of the associa
tion and no .contributions In the matter
of funds is whatthe runners charge the
association ofticials with. Physical Pl
rictor Grilley Is not held at fault.
Crowd Out to See Racers Start.
SALEM. Or., May 2. (Sp2clal.) Quite
a large crowd gathered at the State Cap
itol at 9 o'clock this morning to witness
the 6tart of the Chemawa-Portland Y.
M. C. A. relay race. As Governor Cham
berlain handed his messages to the run
ners, Haight, of Chemawa, and COrto
rlu, of Portland, and the signal was given
to start, the crowd gave a shout of en
couragement. Contrary to expectations,
the two men began their five-mile sec
tion of the course ;at a pretty stiff rate,
but they slowed down some as soon as
they were out of sight of the crowd.
Speech on Foraker's Brownsville Bill
Cannot Hurt Idaho Man In
That Quarter.
ington, May 2. When Senator Borah
announced bis purpose to discuss the
Brownsville matter in the Senate it was
noised about that the new Senator from
Idaho was taking the President's end of
that now notorious controversy becase he
had practically no negro votes in Idaho
and therefore had nothing to lose. Those
who stood sponsor for that report were
una wars that Senator Borah had previ
ously made himself so solid with the
negro voters of Idaho that he would re
tain their support regardless of anything
he might say in regard to the discharged
Anent this popularity with tha Idaho ne
groes, tha following story has been print
ed, showing why Senator Borah will lose
no negro votes on account of his Browns
ville speech:
Senator Borah Is a man who earned
the right to proclaim hlms If defend r of
the colored rac;. at the risk of his life.
Senator Borah is yet a young man,
and the incident is recent enough to abide
in the memory of thousands of his Idaho
constituents. But for Borah's splendid
courage and prompt action, the bodv of a
negro would have darkled at the end of a
ropa and Nampa, Idaho, would have had
a lynching.
When this thing happened the Sena
tor Borah of today wu plain Bill Borah,
leading citijten and practicing attorney at
the bar of Boise. There had been a ball
game at Nampa, 25 miles distant, between
rival teams of Boise and Nampa, A Boise
negro who accompanied his team as mas
cot and general functionary had become
the victim of Boise unpopularity. He was
attacked on the ball field, and In his own
defense he shot a white man. Fealing
immediately ran high. The negro was ar
rested. There was talk of lynching, but
the spirit of outlawry seamed to have
subsidid, and the Boise ballplayers re
turned to tbelr home, leaving the colored
man In the Nampa JalL
That night Nampa experienced a
reign of terror. A mob organized and
it made an attack on the Jail. It was
11:30 o'clock at night when Borah was
called from his bed to the telephone, to
be told that the negro's life was at
Borah's decisions and action were
characteristically prompt. First, by
telephone, he made provision for a.
special train, to be placed at once at his
disposal. Then he called up the Gov
ernor. Hurriedly he Informed him of
what had happened and what was
about to happen. "I want your au
tority to represent you," he demanded.
"I am going to get that negro out of
the hands of the mob, if he's alive when
I reach Nampa."
The Governor caught some of the'
spirit of the determined young man; he
decided to accompany him. Borah
picked up two other men. Deputy Sher
iffs "Shad" Hodgin. famous in the Hay
wood trial, and "Ras'V Beemer, . by
name. The. special train made a record
run; Nampa was reached ehortly after
midnight. Borah and his two deputy
sheriffs left the special and made for
the heart of the excited city. '
Downtown he mounted a dry goods
box and tried to exhort the people.
They jeered and hooted him. No ex
pedient was left save to carry the fight
to the Jail Itself. The crowd. had al
most finished its work. The outer doors
or the jail had been battered. The In
ner doors had yielded, and men, armed
with sledges and picks, were endeavor
ing to reach the cage in which the
frightened negro was confined.
A frenzied mob screamed their ap
proval on the outside, mad with the
thirst for blood. That was the situ
ation when Borah and his two friends
pushed their way through the crowd,
among the men who were completing
the last preliminaries.
"What brings you here. Bill Borah?"
one of them demanded.
"I've come to get that negro." was
the retort. The other tried to place a
restraining hand on him. "Baa" Reemr,
a very Goliath In towering figure and
strength, pushed him mildly aside.
"That'll do for you now," he shouted.
"We've come to jt this negro," Bo
rah said In tones so firm that the crowd
gave attention. "We've come to get him
peaceably If possible, but get him we
will at any cost. Aboard our special
train we nave forces sufficient to cope
with you, and unless bloodshed be your
desire, you must surrender this negro."
"That'll be about all." affirmed MRas,"
as he pushed a few others out of the
way, and made his. way, with revolvers
threateningly exposed, the negro pro
tected by his huge form and that of his
comrade, Hodgin. . With Borah bringing
up the rear they made their way to the
special train In the twinkling of an eye
they were aboard and speeding madly
toward Bclse. Three men had outwitted
a town bent on lynching, and not a single
blow struck.
The next day the Nampa papers emit
ted an awful shriek. "An insult," they
termed it, that three outsiders should
Invade their town and defy as well as
hornswaggle their leading citizens.

ABERDEEN," Wash., May 2. (Special.) Dr. W. S. Holt, of Portland, will preach the dedicatory sermon
Sunday, May 3, in the new Presbyterian Church built by the Presbyterians at a cost of $20,000. The build
ing marks a new era in church construction in this city, inasmuch as heretofore little attention has been
paid to the character of buildings devoted to Christian worship. Aberdeen, until the erection of the Pres
byterian Church, had nothing worthy of the civic pride of Its people In the way of a handsome church. It
Is understood now that the Presbyterians have taken the initiative in this particular direction that the
Methodists will soon proceed with the erection of a stone church to cost $30,000, and that the Episco
palians intend to make their church building more attractive. The new church was designed by a Los
Angeles architect and combines many pleasing and harmonious features. Its Interior arrangement is
worthy of note and Is probably one of the best adapted for the purposes for which it will be used on the
Pacific Coast. By a unique plan the entire first floor, which Is divided into a main auditorium, Sunday
school parlors, large lobby entrance and gallery, may be thrown Into one great room when occasion de
mands. The church has many fine leaded glass windows and three elaborate memorial windows. Rev.
E. R. Prichard Is the pastor who has superintended the work of construction and who has built up a
large membership the past few yean.

How to Make Them Appetizing and
criminating eater. But there are other
strawberry dishes and methods of serv
ing that are, on occasion, useful and sat
isfactory. Here, of course, strawberry shortcake
heads the liBt Of the two types of short
cake, the "old-fashioned," or plain kind,
half-way between biscuit and pastry, is
the better and more wholesome. But it
must be eaten at once, as It easily loses
Its attractiveness; while the cake-likt
mixture, made with eggs, can be baked
some hours before hand with less dis
astrous result and is, therefore, tne type
most favored by bakers or restaurant
As a rule, each family has its own
particular shortcake recipe which is
superior to all others; but the following
Is a good average formula, which is
neither difficult nor expensive to fol
low: For every cup of sifted flour take
teaspoon salt, 2 level teaspoons bak
ing powder, 3 level tablespoons butter
or lard, hi to 1-3 cup' sweet milk. Or, in
other words, take a baking powder bis
cuit recipe and double or treble the
usual amount of shortening.
Individual shortcakes are most at
tractive, and can be cut wtlh the
lid of a baking-powder or coffee tin
whether of a pound, two-pound or half
pound tin will depend upon the age, sex
and hunger of the individual to be
served. Or handsome family cakes, 18
inches or more In diameter, may be
preferred, as requiring less handling,
both in baking and serving, and mak
ing a more attractive appearance when
the serving is done at table not "from
the side."
The cakes should of course be split
and buttered' hot, and piled up with
crushed. Juicy berries between the lay
ers. Whipped cream and whole berries
decorate the top and extra cream may
be passed by way of sauce.
Shortcakes of the other type are
made by taking any plain cake mix
ture, making it less sweet than usual,
and serving in layers with berries and
whipped cream or meringue.
A pleasing variation is to bake little
cup ' cakes (old-fashioned "cup cake"
or any preferred mixture baked in
deep muffin pans) and, after scooping
out the centers, fill the remaining
shells with berries and whipped cream,
berries and Bavarian cream, or berries
and ice cream. The berries should, of
course, be suitably sweetened.
The centers scooped from the cakes,
if not devoured at once by Interested
Juvenile spectators, may reappear at
some later .meal as th foundation of
a strawberry trifle layers of cake
crumbs, crushed strawberries, custard,
more crushed strawberries and me
ringue arranged in long-stemmed serving-glasses.
Whipped cream Is, of
course, . nicer than meringue, but the
latter, with the custard, Is useful if
the supply of cream is not what it
should be.
A modern adaptation of the short
cake is to be seen In light, hollow,
eream puffs, or unfrosted eclairs, filled
and garnished with combinations of
berries and cream, the latter being
sometimes not only whipped but stif
fened with gelatine and piped on the
outside, as well as the inside of the
eclairs, with small, whole berries, for
contrasting decoration.
