r The Multnomah-Chemawa game this
afternoon promises to be one of the hardest-fought
football contests that has
been played In Portland this season,
The Indians r secured permission of
Manaa-er McMillan to Clay outside men
--that is. men who do not attend the In
dian school at Chemawa and engaged
three star football-players,, two of them
from the Haskell Indian school of Kan
sas and one from, the Perish school In
'California. The new men are McCully,
- who will play center, and Left Guard
' Bander of Kansas, and J, Peassonl of the
Perish school, ,. .
The game will be called promptly at
S:110-and the Multnomah boys will battle
, hard to retain the Iaujls that they .have
' gained at home. ; Br, far on their home
'grounds they have ; not been scored
against, and the only defeats met with
this season were those in California.

without the services of Murphy and

HOLD ELECTION JODAY
At the meeting of the stockholders
of the Portland Baseball association,
which la to be held this afternoon, a
new president and board of directors will
be chosen for the ensuing year.
Just who will be chosen to lead the
organization next season is a jnatter
of speculation. There are rumors circu
lating to the effect that a slate has been
prepared by some of the most Influential
stockholders . and H seems that : it will
prevail at the session without opposi
tion.: The majority of the stockholders,
who were disgruntled at the dropping of
Mr. Marshall and Manager Vlgneux, have
either disposed of their stock or retired
from active Interest in the association's
affairs. . ;f ;.:' ;iyn':'v v'::-: . ':;.. ,,X:';i
Of the present board of directors it
Is probable that Messrs. Scbmeer and
Richards will be again chosen to act in
that capacity. The others have signified
their desire to retire from active con
nection with the club, and their suc
cessors are to be chosen at thlsafter
hoon's meeting. ' , . "
. Plans will be discussed regarding the
proposed Improvements of the baseball
grounds. ' A . short time - ago the asso
ciation proposed extensive improvements,
such as the erection of a new, up-to-date
grandstand and new bleachers. Also the
moving of the right field fence and the
raising of the fences in order to shut
off the "rail birds," who congregate on
the world's fair fences and witness the
ball games gratis. The work of fitting
up the park, should the association de
cide to do so, will be started shortly
after the new vear. which Will allow
the contractors time enough to complete
the-work by-ttre first of May. when the
season opens in this city.
The present grandstand nl bleachers
are unsightly and but fiimslly con
structed, having been thrown up in a
hurry upon the organization of the Pa
cific Northwest league In 1901, and when
the success of a- baseball venture was
uncertain. Now conditions are different
and prospects are rlght for a successful
season, and with the 1905 fair approach
ing an up-to-date ball park Is in line
with the improvements of the times,
and the coming of the exposition, as
well as the comfort of the baseball pat
rons, warrants the outlay. '

Pitcher Cronln and Shortstop Babb to
Brooklyn for Dahlen, the exchange
being merely one of players, with no
money , consideration. By this deal the
infleld of,tH; Giants is materially
strengthened, .and its pitching staff is
not weakened to the extent that any
apprehension need be felt about it.
Dahlen led the National league short
stops last season with the splendid
average of .948. Babb was fourth on
the list, with .912:-? Dahlen fell off in
his bating in 1903, when his average
was only .262, but at that be excelled

The fact that four Of the Coast leaguer
stars are reported to have bee.v corraletl
by Danny Long, the Pacific coast agent
of Ned Hanlon of Brooklyn, for the lat
tcr's National league club, has caused
no' end of discussion anying the fan
all oVer the circuit. Tho men reported
to have - signed with Long 'are Van
Buren ftnd Nadeau of Portland. Dillon af
LOS' Angeles, and Harry lumiey or Se
Frank Dillon, the capable captain or.
Morley's champions,-. Is -undoubtedly the
best man of the four, both in experience
and ability, -The other three are cam
paratlvely new men, and have not as
yet had a trial among the top-notchers.
Nadeau has signed to play next ye:ir
with Portland, and gave Manager Ely
his word that he would not go to Brook
lyn, notwithstanding that he had made
a deal with that club previous to mak
ing- terms with Ely. Phil is a valuable
player on any club, because of his bat
ting and base-running ability, and hi
many admirers will be glad, to know of
his decision' to play with Portland an
Other season."' " ; .
Whether Dillon r will go to the Bu-
perbas remains to be seen, as the Loo
Loo captain is a great favorite in the
southern city, and besides he recently
marrlod a California girl,, and stated
that he hoped to make his home In the
Golden state In the future. Dillon's
prospects in Los Angeles' are much
brlghtor than they are In the event of
his making a change, .in toe serapnic
burg he la a favorite, and should he
go, he, leaves It for an uncertainty. He
has had several trials on both National
and American league teams, nd failed
to stay on any club long.
As.to Van Buren : and Lumley, tney
are. both good, fast minor league play
era, but whether they will stand th
gaff among the stars ts a question tirmi
alone can answer. . Van Buren ,1s a far
better fielder than Lumley, and there
fore has a greater chance of making
good. Lumley's fielding will handicap
him more or less, and unless he hit
extraordinarily well from the start he u
likely to be farmed out or dropped.
Andy Anderson will not bs a member
of next season's Portland team, tor luy
figures on getting a faster man for that
position, Anderson seems to be some'
what overweight for a second baseman,
which position calls for a light, quick
and active man, one who can cover
large area of ground. Men like Casey,
Mohler, HpUlngsworth and Little Ray
mond are the right build for guardians
of the second corner.
It Is well known that Rube Waddell
Is dissatisfied with the provisions of his
Philadelphia contract, and also thit
Connie Mack will not allow him to play
with any other club. Therefore there
Is a good chance to secure this erratic
player, - who would prove a great draw
lng card in Portland as well as all over
the circuit Manager Ely Intends to
use his utmost endeavors to land the
"Rube" and has high hopes of succeed
Inr. for he (Ely) was captain of the
Plttsburgs when Waddell pitched " for
that organisation, and Is therefore well
acquainted with the big southpaw's ec
centricities, and knows to a certain ex
tent how to handle him. The acquisi
tion of Waddell would be the greatest
coup- the Portland management could
SDrlna- on the local fans, as a drawing
card, for his fame Is known from one
end of the states to the other. '
An Oakland exchange states that Pete
Lohman may nave an outfield composed
of the following players: Van Haltren,
McCreedle and Dunleavy, with Murdpck
or Kruger to help out. . That would b
a pretty fast trio to draw to. Evidently
Pete is trying to redeem himself for
the past season's nondescript aggrega
tion. . .'.. : -
To date the men who will wear Port
land uniforms next season are: , Shields.
Thlolman, Butler, Freeman, Nadeau,
Francs and Druhot, and possibly Law
ler and Danny Shea. The nafnes of
several' other good men may be added
to this In the near futureaa Ely Is in
correspondence with them, and expects
to get their signatures to 1904 contracts
very soon. . Players who know the
game and can play It as a unit, are the
men who are being given the preferenqe
by the local manager.
The many friends In this city are glad
to learn of the success tf fy Andrews
In being chosen by President Sexton of
the Western league to manage one of the

E. A. Wallen. Finey, Mo.: "i was
afflicted with paralysis for over four
years, and was treated by different mag
netic healers and others doctors, and got
no relief. I think your treatment is
more than you claim. They all say it
was like bringing the dead to Ufa to be
restored to health in such a short time.
I cannot praise you enough."
Doctors have sought out and brought
the very worst cases in the eountry to
Professor- Adkln. thinking they might
baffle him. but they have gone away,
convinced that he uses some invisible
power or force unknown to them. They
cannot explain the phenomena. Profes
sor Adkin Is quite wealthy.' He lives in
a One home in an aristocratlo section of
the city. He has a number of business
Interests, but devotes most of his time
to healing the sick. He offers certain
help to any one without money or price.
All you need to do Is to call on him or
write him. If you write. Stats tha lead
ing symptoms of your trouble, your age
and sex. Professor Adkln takes an in
tense delight In curing cases that deb
tors hsve given up to die.
He disdains the use of Christian Sci
ence, osteopathy, faith healing or drugs.
He claims his method is scientific in the
highest degree.' although scientists s
far have been utterly unable to compre
hend it. One thing is sure, and that is
he has some mysterious knowledge,
agent or process by which he restores
health to people In the very last stages
of usually fatal diseases. Over 30 doc
tors have taken up the study of his
methods. Some are staying right with
him and daily witness the remarkable
cures he performs. . Nearly every train
brings invalids j to be healed by his
power, - He gets an enormous mail from
persona in nearly all parts of the globe.
The most mysterious thing about his
whole work la his ability to heal at a
distance, but there is no lark of proof
that he doea heal those thousands of
miles away the same as those who call
personally. This would seem to prove
beyond doubt that thought, will power
or some mysterious intangible force can
be sent through gfcace the same aa we
ara now able-, to telegraph without wires;
but how this force takes hold and quick
ly rids the body of material disease Is
totally Inexplicable. ' In some cases Pro
fessor Adkln sends a peculiar magnet

which he claims lmrndlaUly revltalla
