ALBANY. Nov. 23. (Special.) That
Intangible something; known as "Ore
gon spirit" sprang one of the greatest
surprises of the football year today at
the Albany ball park. The University
of Oreg-on literally massacred the Or
egon Agricultural College, and,, while
the score was only 3 to 0, the wonder
. of. It is the margin wasn't larger.
A 25-yard place kick by Carl Fenton,
of Dallas, at the start of the second
quarter, decided the state gridiron
championship, but the scintillating: star
In the great battle of the year was
Halfback Johnny Parsons, a former
Portland High School athlete.
Corvallls IJne Outplayed.
Oregon's beefy line simply smothered
the Corvallls "Aggies," but It was this
dashing- Parsons, who ate his way
through the quick-closing' orifices, cir
cled the ends, zigzagged and plowed
for three-quarters of the Oregon yard
age. On the very first play he electri
fied the 6000 wildly excited enthusiasts
by biting off 25 yards around the
feeble "Aggies' " right wing-, and after
that the varsity always' hold the upper
Perfect order was maintained both
on and off the field. Between halves
the Agricultural College khakl-clad
rooters assembled In communion on the
rather slippery gridiron and liberated a
score or more of orange - bedecked
pigeons, who carried first news of the
core to Corvallls. "That's the way the
Aggies' play," shrieked one budding
George Ade. from the chrysanthemum
section. "Always up In the, air."
.And the witticism aptly described the
situation on the field of play. Dolan's
men played high and tackled woefully,
while Oregon showed a complete re
versal of past mediocrity by playing
real hard football, both old style and
Oregon's Defease Strong.
With perhaps the exception of Chrls-
inan at center and the doughty SItton I
at guard, the entire Corvallls line was
fConrluded on Pafe 12.)

It seems that yesterday the Invading

Withdrawing their advance posts, the
Bulgars encouraged attacks upon them
and at the same time converged a kui

The Turks advanced with ghastly
courage into the face of death, while
the Bulgarians showed that they could
be as skillful In night defense as they
were In night attack.
The end of the fighting- did not come
until noon today, when the Turks fell
back on their positions, leaving a large
proportion of their men on the Held.
Some estimate that at least half of the
attacking force were killed or wounded,

The losses of the Bulgarians was
slight, as they remained In positions
not exposed to the enemy and were
firing steadily on an object exposed by

Although the Bulgarian soldiers, for

their clothes for six weeks and are
sleeping on the ground, they continue
to amaze the foreign observers, by their
cheerfulness and aggressiveness. They

Medford Sufragists tAsk for Place

MEDFORD, Or., Nov. 23. (Special.)
Women of Medford were quick to
take advantage of their recently grant

meeting of the City Council after the

a woman member of the city election
board, and an application will also be
made In the near future for a police
matron in this city. The. women who
applied were members of the civic im

The Mayor and Council received the
feminine delegation with every mark
of courtesy and respect and granted the
first request, appointing Mrs. A. B.

vote in Medford and It is probable that
there will be two election boards here
after to take care of the increased leg

creased bond which was required by
the court "because he had deceived

COURT TO SETTLE DISPUTE
Astoria Taxpayers Bring Test Case
Over Irving-Avenue Slide.
ASTORIA. Or., Nov.. 23. (Special.)
The question of the legality of paying
the Irving avenue improvement war
rants with money taken from the gen
eral fund of the city is to be tested
before the courts. That was decided
upon this afternoon when a suit was
filed In the Circuit Court by Robert
Carruthers and Franz Kankkonen
against the city, the Auditor and the
Treasurer, asking that the defendants
be restrained from paying the warrants
About four years ago 316,500 In war
rants drawn on the Irving avenue im
provement fund were Issued to pay the
contractor for 80 per cent of the work
done on the Improvement. Soon after
wards a big slide occurred on the street
and the Improvement was never com
pleted and no assessments have been
collected. On last Monday, evening, the
Council, over the Mayer's veto'and di
rectly against the advice of the City
Attorney, passed an ordinance authoriz
ing the payment of those warrants by
Issuing in their place warrants drawn
on the general fund.
The complaint filed today asserts that
the ordinance Is void, as tinder the
charier. Improvements must bo paid for
with warrants on the improvement fund
and In no other way.

Miss Addams Starts Things.
Misa Jane Addams, of Chicago, pre
cipitated the issue. When she allied
herself with a political party in June
she started an opposition within the
suffrage organization. She frankly told
the convention today that she had for
gotten she was a member of. the
suffrage association when she commit
ted her'silf to the political movement.
Miss Addams' political activity caused
Mrs. George Howard Lewis, of Buffalo,
N. Y.. to prepare an amendment to the
constitution directing that all officers
and members of the association shall
r-a.iT! tain a. strictly non-Drttsan atti
tude toward all political parties unless
they come from states where equal suf
frage is in torce.
It was the opinion of the delegates
from Illinois and from other states In
the Middle West, when they arrived to
attend the convention, that the opposi
tion to Miss Adams had gathered such
force that there was da,nger the amend
ment would be adopted and that Miss
Addams would be censured.
Mrs. Lewis' Campaign Vigorous.
Most of their work this" week has
been In organizing to protect Miss
Addams. The campaign which Mrs.
Lewis waged was tireless and sweeping.
It was known that she had obtained
the support of Mrs. Oliver H. P. Bel
mont, and It was thought by members
of the Illinois delegation that the prom
inent officers of the association and in
fluential leaders In strong Eastern del
egations were In the movement aimed
at Miss Addam3. Mrs. Lewis was not
present when the issue finally came
before the convention today, but was
represented by Ida Hewster Harper, of
New York. Mrs. Belmont was also pres

Mrs. Lewis prefaced her attack upon
Miss Addams with the remark that she
had taken off her gloves and had
rolled up her sleeves, and that she
would throw her hat into the ring
were it not for the hatpins. She de
clared the question to be the most Im

the first time In 43 years, she said, was
