CRACK FOOTBALL TEAMS TO
TRY OUT ON CHRISTMAS DAY
Multnomah Has Decided to Give That
Date to Commercial, Which Will
Be Quite Strong.
There' nothing so uncertain a foot
ball dates. Testerday The Astorlan
announced failure of the negotiations
for a Christmas day game between
Commercial and Multnomah, and now
must announce that the Christmas dayj
game will take place. Multnomah had
been negotiating with Oregon for
Christmas, but yesterday Manager
Watkins wired a proposal that Com
merclal will agree to. Mr. Watkins
Is willing to give the team 1200 or 40
per cent of the net receipts, Commer
rial to take its choice after the game
Is played. It costs money to maintain
a football team, and for this reason
the financial arrangements are Import
ant It Is interesting In this connec
tion to note that football managers
usually hare little trouble as to al
Manager Watkins telegram came
yesterday. It was rather Indefinite in
Its language, but its receipt indicates
that Multnomah wants Commercial for
Christmas. The date originally fixed
was December J, but Commercial was
anxious for the Christmas game and
urged Mr. Watkins to try and make
arrangements. At first it seemed that
the Portland team would take on Ore
gon, but now it Is probable that Com
merclal will make the Xmaa struggle
on Multnomah grid. If the Christmas
day game with Commercial Is played
a large delegation will attend from this
city, and there Is little doubt that the
crowd will be a record-breaker. Fur
ther advices are expected today from
Manager Watkins concluding the ar
rangement In view of the fact that
Commercial will defeat Multnomah on
Christmas, the game should be seen
by at least 5000 people. It will be the
game of games.
Commercial's next game. If Mult
nomah takes on the Astoria clubmen
Christmas, will be with Puget Sound

this team goes without saying, j probably not be another until the short
guards like Gammal, tackles like Blair
and Sutton, centers tike Bay and halves
like Painter are not numerous, even In
the entire country. Only the weight of
experience will count against Commer
cial's other men.
The Puget Sound-Commercial game
ought to be a fast one. Commercial
Is now practicing diligently for the
struggle, and It the men work a well
on the Seattle grid as In the gymnas
ium victory will be comparatively
simple. Commercial will line up for
the Seattle game as follows: Center,
Bay; right guard. Gamma; left guard,
Minard; right tackle, Sutton; left
tackle, Blair; right end, Jones: left end.
Barker; quarterback. Stockton (cap
tain); right half, Roxy Graham; left
half. Painter; fullback, Abereromble;
substitutes, Mathena, Welch, Mix and
Roxy Graham was in Portland last
night but every other man In the
sauad was at the gymnasium. The
practice was secret and the work done
was excellent. The team at present Is
very strong, and if Stockton and Bar
ker completely recover use of crippled
legs Commercial will make December
memorable month In football lore.
Barker is ever so much better than he
was last year, and the whole team has
improved. The men are enthusiastic
and turn out nightly for hard, hard
practice. Minard is not in town Just
at present but he can be relied upon
to give a good account of himself.
Captain Stockton la tickled to death
with the work of his squad, and says
Commercial's football colors will con
tinue to fly.
INTERESTS OF COLUMBIA
WILL BE LOOKED AFTER
Harbor Improvement to Be Cared for by
the Committee at the Forthcoming
' Session of Congress.
A special to the Oregonian from
The house committee on rivers and
harbors held a preliminary meeting
today to prepare a bill which will be
ready for presentation to the bouse be
fore the Christmas recess. The meas
ure was discussed only In a general
way, but an agreement was reached
that the more important projects would
be taken care of first by the commit
tee and the less important afterward.
Representative Jones of Washington
will look after the Interests of the Co
lumbia river, the improvement of which
means so much to his constituents In
Washington. Members of the commit
tee who were seen today were of opin
ion that the Columbia project proper-'
ly comes within the classification of
important, and it will be among those
Mr. Jones was present today. In ad
dition to caring for the Columbia river
work, Mr. Jones will control to a large
degree appropriations for improve
ments In the state of Washington.
It has been definitely determined
that a river and harbor bill shall be
passed at the approaching session of
congress. Chairman Burton decided to
get his committee together In advance
of the convening of congress, so as
to complete work on the bill and have
It ready to present to the house Just
before the holiday recess. Once the
bill Is called up in the house It will
take but a short time to get it through
that body, and It will go through In
session of the fifty-ninth congress.
Therefore the appro print Ion to.be
made thl winter will be of sufficient
site to continue work for two years lo
come, commencing July 1, 1905.
Four years ago Senator Tom Carter
of Montana, angry because the west
ern men were unable to secure the
enactment or a national Irrigation law,
vented hi spite by talking the river
and harbor bill to death, at the close
of the short session of the fifty-sixth
congress. There Is little probability
that any such tactics will be resorted
tq, by disgruntled senator thl year,
though there Is always a possibility of
defeating a bill of thl character In a
short session. There has of late grown
up a sentiment against enacting river
and harbor legislation In the long ses
sion, as it is the session Immediately
preceding elections, and members do
not like to go before the people with
a fresh record of expenditures that will
surely be termed "extravagant" by the
the opposition. That Is why river and
harbor bills are now put over until the
It should be said. In passing, that
the appropriation for continuing the
Jetty Improvement at the mouth of the
Columbia river will not be made In
the river and harbor bill, as this Is a
"continuing project," appropriated for
each year In the sundry civil bill.
The coming session will determine
once for all whether The Dalles-Celllo
canal project Is Intended to be a con
tinuing project. By some It Is con
tended it Is such: Chairman Burton of
the house committee says It Is not It
Is highly desirable that thl should be
made a continuing project, If It Is not
one already, for once It enters this
class there Is sure to be adequate ap
proprlatlona made for cnrrylng on the
work each year, Irrespective of whether
or not congress passes a river and har
bor bill. AU continuing projects are
appropriated for yearly, and enough
money Is always made available to
continue work without cessation until
the project Is completed. -
It may require special legislation to
make The Dalles-Celllo canal a con
tinuing project. If so, the members of
the Oregon delegation will endeavor to
secure the enactment of such legislation.
