Sunday's association football game
between the Ilwaco and Condon (eastt
ern Oregon) teams was a snap for Il
waco, which scored seven times. The
sheepherders lacked team work and the
Ilwaco men scored live times in tha
flrst half. The game is played with
head and feet, the. use of the hands
being (wl, and the, match excited much
enthusiasm among spectators. As
sociation football was once very pop
ular in Astoria, but few of the ama
teur sportsmen could "now tell 'now
many points a goal counted. ' The Il
waco team returned on last ' night's
train and its members were very glee
full because of their decisive victonr.
The prospect of bitter warfare be--.ween
the rivaling lumbering interests
of the coast will affect the local situ
ation to a material extent.,. The strife
will probably not reach an acute stage
until spring, for, the reason that logs
are verv scarce at present, many of the
lodging camps having been closed down
for the winter. It is Btated the north
ern mill men will leave nothing undone
to rout their , California ' antagonists,
and, as is asaal In such contentlons,the
mill men will seek to,i compel every
branch of the Industry to bear part of
the burden. " The price of logs will
doubtless be forced down, and there is
some talk, already of probable reduc
tion of wages. The loggers are m a
rtrong combination and it is not clear
that they will agree to stand part of
the brunt of the . big fight whioh -is
fmnendlne. As to the 'employes, they
have a union now, and an effort at re-
d uced wages may cause trouble . 1 ne
belief is general that the Califomlans
vUl lose out !n their struggle. .
The capture of the two alleged
thieves wanted at Vancouver showed
good work on the part ol tne ant
ing officers Messrs. , uamma.
Thompson, The aescripuu,, v--men.sent
by the sheriff of CJark coun
ty, was meager, and when uamma,
and Thompson were aetata to make
the arrest it appeared that the data at
hand would allow the culprits to elude
their vigilance. The town was filled
with strangers, many loggers .ana
country people being in the city pre
paring for Christmas. Nothing daunt
ed, however, the officers set out and
son ran actbss two men that aroused
the suspicion of Mf. Oammal.. The
movements of the suspects were noted
and they were followed to tne o. n.
Sc N. dock where their luggage had
been landed by the steamer Hassalo.
They were later arrested In a ddwn
town saloon. : The men made no at
tempt to conceal their Identity, which
Is considered somewhat . strange as
there Is , little question as to their
gum. . a i '. s . .

Nearly all the men on the Commer
cial football team complain of stirc
necks since their Christmas day battle
with the Cheraawa Indian eleven. The
Indians play fierce ball and have culti
vated a faculty of twisting necks when
tackling. The Chemawa team was
nMr. than the Commercial eleven
nnA the visitors depended upon trick
plays for their yardage. The neck
twisting system which they employed
was calculated to weaken the player'
work. When Decker, the Haskell end,
tackled' Stockon on the'latter's great
run he deliberately twisted the Com
mercial quarterback's neck and was
hissed for his foul tactics. Stockton
was not hurt, however. In this mixup
When Barker began making his fre
quent runs the Indians spotted him
for ulanghter,- and balf dosen times
an effort was jnada to lncapacltiate
him by" kicking him oh the ankle.' Not
until the' very end of the last half was
Ithe-effort successful: Barker's ankle
Is badly swollen. Several other play

Mr. Foraker did not like being in

"When the gentleman from Massa
