The addition of Oregon to the Demo

In addition to electing successors to
Democratic Senators now sitting,
Democrats will displace Republicans

Colorado with men of their choosing.
The contests in Illinois, where two

The first aid to injured saved the life
of Motorman A. C. Dow today when he
was hit with 6000- volts of electricity
from the wires of the Spokane & In

top of an electrical motor car on which
he was working in the yards at this
point. Dow, whose home Is in Spo

switch oft at the base of a po.le before
going on top of the car to grease the
pantagraph, and in some unaccountable
manner, while Dow was looking at the
regular morning electric train pull out,
the "kite" raised to contact with the
high-tension wire while Dow had his
hands on the post.
His hands and feet were severely
lacerated and burned. Undertaker
George Slelt saw the accident from
his residence and hastened to Dow,
who fell beside the car. Steltx Imme

to the promised land.
- If Mr. Roosevelt really is cherishing

PARIS, Nov. 9. "Dangerous, but not

summed up tonight in official circles
The diplomatic controversy between
Austria and Servia over Servia's access
to the Adriatic has the center of the
stage, overshadowing all else, even the
Accord of Power Retarded.
Efforts at. mediation have been post

work to Induce the disputants to com

LONDON, . Nov. 9. Another mile

almost as much to the Greeks as the
ancient capital, fskuk, to the Servians.
Crown Prince Constantlne, after an
interview with ' the commandant and

The report of a massacre in the city

ACCUSED MANJVIAKES PLEA
In Own Defense ex-Chief Clerk at
Navy-Yard Takes Stand.
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 9. Edwin F.
Meyer, former chief clerk in the gen
eral storekeeper's office at the Puget
Sound Navy-yard, took the stand in his
own defense today in the Federal Court,
where he is on trial accused of de
frauding the Government In connec
tion with supply contracts. Meyer testi
fied that he had $600 when he was
transferred to the Puget Sound yard
from South Carolina in 1902, and that
soon after his arrival here J. A. Ket
tlewell a brother employe who has
already served a sentence for partici
pation in the supply frauds, borrowed
$150 from him.
Meyer said that Kettlewell, who was
one of the Government's principal wit
nesses, still owes him $75 on that loan.
Regarding the Government check pay
able to Peter Brandt, whom tho Gov
ernment alleges is a fictitious person
and which was cashed for Meyer by his
attorney, Meyer said the check was
given to him by 'Kettlewell in payment
of another loan of $200 and that he
did not know that such a person as
Peter Brandt did not exist. Catagorl
cally denying every allegation made by
the Government Meyer asserted that be
had never recived monthly paymnts of
$20, from R. H. Wheeler, a machinery
salesman who waft.pflnvicted with Ket
tlewell and that he had never given
Wheeler advance information on ma
terial needed by the Government. Meyer
was still on the stand when court ad

Excellent Football and Fight

BY ROSCOK FAWCETT.
Umpire Washington-O. A. C Game.
Coach Samuel M. P. Dolan, of the
Oregon Agricultural College, pushed
an enigma at the University of Wash
ington football champions yesterday on
Multnomah field. An enigma is as se
rious an affliction in football as fff is in
the dictionary. With three minutes to
play in the fourth quarter and) the
score 3 tp 3, it looked as if the Wamo
would end in a tie. Then two plays
changed the conundrum into a 3 to 3
catastrophe one a magnificent 45
yrd punt by Young, of Washington,
the other a disastrous bungle by the
under dogs In the 2-to-l and 3-to-l
Those two plays one of achieve
ment, the other of mischievement-un-doubtedly
turned the tides of war and
gave the Washington champions a toe
hold on the pennant. In that fatal door-die
finish. Quarter-back Young,
backed up on his own 25-yard line,
kicked a hole In the door of fame by
booting the soggy ball 45 yards down
the field. Dewey, In the backfleld, fum
bled the punt one of many bungle
some slips of the kind and then
sprang the serious tactical mistake of
attempting a forward pass on the first
down In his own defense territory.
Miller Makes Touchdown.
Young, of Washington, intercepted
the pass, and that proved the crack in
the Corvallis shell. After two trials
Young essayed a drop kick from a had
angle and the Aggies recovered the
ball on their own 25-yard line. Black
well punted a puny 15-yard offering,
Young returning 10 yards. Voung
gained five yards and then sang out
the signal for a forward pass. Twenty
yards the leather sailed over the heads
of the helpless Beavers Into the out
stretched paws of Lelt-end Clark, who
was down on the four-yard line. Shiel
made no gain and then "Hap" Miller,

who had tossed the pass to Clark,
slammed through guard for the touch
down that spelled victory and sent
emotions of Joy and of sorrow vi
brating through a crowd of close to
4000 wild-eyed enthusiasts.
The Oregon Aggies played a brilliant.
grinding game. There's no question
about It, for Washington had been ex
pected to win by a score something
like 18 to 0. The. Corvallis line out
fought ' and out-gamed their heavier
opponents all through the four quar
ters, making yardage ten times to
eight for Dobie. Young's remarkable
punting, however, offset the superior
line plunging and the fact that tho
Seattleites had the punch when tho
punch was needed makes It Imperative
to add that the best team undoubtedly
