TI1I3 winnhrg gives Marshfield a hope ot yet winning the liennaut, no matter If It Is a forlorn hope. There are three game3 yet to be played, and Coquillo must lose two of them and Marshfield must win all three if she would tie Coquillo for the champion ship. This looks like an Impossibil ity, but baso ball is always uncertain and tho unexpected may happen in this Instance. North Bend cannot tie Coqullle for. tho lead If she should win all tho games she is yet to play, since she has lost five games, and Coqullle could lose but four if they fell down on every game for the re mainder of the contest. Tlic Game at Raudon. Tho Marshfleld-Bandon game played at Bandon, was a poor exhibi tion on the part of the Bandon play ers, and they made fifteen errors In tfio nine innings. Marshfield played good baso ball, and had but three fumbles chalked up against her. Bandon wasexcusable to some extent, since Its catcher had a thumb broken in tho first inning and had to retire from tho game. Rosa, who caught for the remainder of. tho game, did good work, but tho elu-b scorned to have lost confidence when the regu lar man wont' out, and played poorly for tho rest of tho game. Had Hohn had the support that Wright had, the Bandon boys would have won tho game. Tho base hit column shows tho Bandon boys to havo done much better stick woi k than the Marshfield aggregation. .Yet this Is a part of tho circumstances which win and lose games, and tho team which makes tho yellow plays usualy loses. There wore no features In tho contest and tho umpiring was considered fair. Tho crowd was about half that which comes out to see the games In Marsh field and North Bend.

Italians In Subucfls Attack De- leless Children and Policey4re Heirless. . HUNDRED POLICE .els Are Being Arrested, But Many Guilty Escape Ruby Last Victim. New' York, "Aug; 5. One of the most brutal of tho recent crimes against women and children was to day charged against Luzza Fontaza, now locked up in New Brighton sta tion, charged with assaulting An toinitte TaluccI, tho two-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mr3. Pasqual TaluccI, of New Brighton, with whom Fontaza boarded. He was left with the child this afternoon while Mrs. TaluccI went shopping. She had not gone far from tho house when the child's screams were heard. When he saw Mrs. TaluccI returning, Fon taza rii3hed from the house, the wo man following him. Soon a mob was chasing tho Italian down the street. Ho was overtaken and se verely beaten until a policeman ap peared with a revolver and club and fought off tho crowd. A physician reported the child seriously injured. Angollno CondartI, six years old, was terribly bruised In a thicket near the village of Llmonvlllo, Staten Is land, this afternoon. She had been attacked by an unknown man. Joly Ambatro was arrested in Brooklyn charged with attempted assault upon two little girl3. Daniel Lalo and Frank Feabody were arraigned on similar charges. Five hundred addi tional police are asked for. Most of tho crimes are committed in seclud ed places. Mothers throughout the city are terror stricken.

It. & S. not properly protected. Foote pitched a winning game, but tho support behind him lost tho game. There was considerable ar gument and chaff at the first part of tho game on account of tho um piring, but tho offonding .official was removed and the game went on bet ter afterwards. An amusing accident happened to Paul of tho North Bend team, and this can bo seen in tho Coquillo report of tho game, publish ed elsewhere. Coqullle ab. r. h. po. a. e.

Commander Robert E. Peary left hero today for New York whence he will sail in a few days on an ex- peditlon to tho -north polo. He says he is going prepared to make 4 every effort to reach tho pole. He carries with him a large num- ber of his former crow. Ho would not commit himself regarding the likelihood of reaching the pole as "For a man to say he will do a certain thing up there Is madness. I have learned many lessons from my other trlp3 and I shall profit by all my experiences. What I shall find at tne polo Is a question until I have reached It."

New York, Aug. 5. Satisfied with tho performance of the experimental all-steel box car built at Its Omaha shops, tho Union Pacific Railroad has ordeied 25 of these cars to be con structed immediately. With a ca pacity of 50 cubic feet more than that of tho standard Union Pacific wooden box car, the steel car weighs two tons less 37.S00 pounds. Be sides affording greater safety and protection to goods In transit, the steel car requires less repairing than a wooden car, will be out of service less frequently and will therefore give mdre as well as better service to carrier and shipper. A 15-lnch steel I-beam forms the center sill of the car below the double steel flooring. Actual tests have shown that the one-eighth Inch sheet steel forming tho sides and ends of tho car Is Wronger than the wood usually used. Tests have also developed the fact that the steel un derframo of a wooden box car can not stand up against the all-steel box car. in collision tne enu ot a wooa en car was badly d&maged, while the steel car was uninjured. The doors of the steel car aro formed by single sheets of steel reinforced, like the sides and ends of the car,' by diag onal bracing. The anticipated difficulties in loading and unloading and the injury that tho stool sides and bottom of tno car might do to contents havo not been borne out by tho Union Pa cific's experience, as shown in the order now placed for additional cars of this type.

(Enterpriser) Myrtle Point nas been experienc ing a smallpox scare, which has been something like the war with Japan up to date considerable of a scare and no one hurt. H. A. Tucker was taken with the dlscaso and as soon as it was determined that It was small pox he was removed to a detention hospital, and those who had been ex posed were viccinated and kept under surveillance. The original case was of a very mild nature, and the two cases growing out of It are also of a mild character and were promptly isolated so that It Is believed the dis ease Is under complete control. Every precaution to prevent the spread of the disease Is justifiable and to bo commended, but In this modern day, there Is no cause for serious alarm, as serious results are seldom shown, tho physicians being so capable of coping with tho disease that It is little worse than a case of chlckenpox, under proper conditions. Meanwhile there need be no fear In coming to Myrtle Point, nor for Myr tle Pointers to go to other towns. The health officers aro vigilant In fIJe'r"Ttttentlons to the matter, and If there Is, any reason for alarm be as sured that they will not permit tie people to take chances of contracting the disease.

WILL TRY TO FORESTALL WINTER COAL FAMINE Hailrcmds Plan Elaborate System of ,. . , . T, . , ' ,,m-y- Chicago, Aug. 5. Following up efforts already made to avert a repe tition of last winter's fuel famine In tho West, additional ordoi-3 have been Issued to local agents of tho Union Pacific ltailroad to advise deal ers of the urgent necessity of laying in their supplies Immediately. At tention Is called to the faet that tho prohibition against transportation companies engaging in coal trade af ter May 1, 1908, has stopped all de velopment work in this direction by railroads, making it impossible for a large territory to draw Its supplies' from the Wyoming fioTds. Supplies must now bo sought In Colorado, or east of tho Mississippi, Good results havo followed tho ac tion of tho Interstate Commerce Commission, at tho request of the Union Pacific, in authorizing a reduc tion of 25 cents a ton on coal ship ped to Washington, Idaho, and Ne vada before September 1. Tho com pany's object in putting this rato re duction into effect Is to lnduco dealers to order fuel now when It can bo readily nandled, rather than to wait, as they did last wintor, until transportation is difficult If not Im possible. By September 1 local Union Pa cific freight agents aro required to report tho amount and kind of coal each dealer has In stock m that date, and If dealers havo failed to get their supplies to report the reason, On its own account the company has stored 200,000 tons of eastern coal, and'i states that tho public can only be assured of fuel next winter by dealers filling their sheds now.
