; "I was Just wondering," said Walter
D. Greene;. as he bathed a swollen eye
' In Ills dressing; room' at the Temple
theatre one night last week, "who will
be the unfortunate actor chosen to face
James J. Corbett next season . when
'Pals' (cho sketch at the Temple 'thea
tre this week, in which a rough-and-tumble
fight takes place) is enlarged to
a four-act melodrama, and Corbett takes
the "place of Hal 'Davis. " I am quite

Davis is about as far as I will go in
that line, and even with him I -some-times

when living in Kansas, I was greatly
troubled with ' kidney complaint At
that time I was, I might aay, perfectly
helpless for months, but In time it wore
away as mysteriously as It came. It
did, not bother me again until last fall,
when there was every symptom of its
return, and knowing what I had suf
fered formerly I began to look around
for something to cheek It, and on look
ing over the paper I noticed Doan's
Kidney Pills highly recommended, so 1
procured them at the Laue-Davis Drug
Co.'s store, corner of Tanfhill and Third
streets, and took them as directed. It
only required a few days' treatment to

Champions Almost Complete. '
So far aa known Manager Morley has
almost completed the team that Is to
represent- Los Angeles In the race, hav
ing signed all his team with the excep
tion of anoltier pitcher. The Angels, as
lined up at . present are: Spies and Ea
gan, catchers; Newton, Hall, Gray and
Wheeler, pitchers; Dillon, first base; Mil
ler, second base; 'toman, shortstop; Jud
Smith, third base; Ross, left field; Hoy,
center field, and Cravath, right field.
This team la practically the same that
won the pennant so easily last season.
The loss of Joe Corbett will no doubt
be felt considerably by the Los Angeles
team, but Mr. Morley assures the Loo
Loo fans that a good man will be se
cured In the "little brother's" place.
' Wilson BUM dome Good Ones.
Parke Wilson Is engaged In signing up
his Seattle team, and so far has the fol
lowing men . under contract: Norman
Brashear. first base; Kid lohler, sec
ond TaseTHenry Janslng, third base;
Carlos Smith, right field; George Van
Haltren, left field; Joe Delehanty, cen
ter field, and Bill Byers and Matt Stan'
ley, catchers. Jay Hughes and Wilson
have about come to terms and the crack
pitcher will, in all probability, again
wear a Seattle uniform. Parke Is also

which is to be a member of the Lucas
league this seasog.
-In case jCaaey decides to- stay there
Mike will have to cast about for an
other second baseman, and a' better one
than Casey would be hard to find.
A a Tila tsam now atn.nda Fisher has
Nordyke at first, Eagan at short Shee-

catchers and Thbmas, Keefe and Fita
gerald pitchers. Fisher says that he has
secured an eastern star box artist In ad
dition to the three already algned and
may also secure Fred Schock who was
with Seattle last season.
Oakland cures Good Kan.
Pete Lohman is endeavoring to secure
a team that will have a place in the race
during the coming season and has signed
several of his 1902 champions for the
season of 1904. The men known to have
signed with Oakland are: Pitcher,
Schmidt; outfielder, Dunieavy; snonstop,
Francks; third baseman, Devereaux; first
baseman, Strelb; utility man, Schwarts;
Pitcher Moskiman and Outfielder Ganley
who forgot to report last season.
Hank Harris in San Francisco has the
following men: Captain and third base
man, Charlie Irwin; pitchers, Cutter and
Whalen; catcher, Tommy Leaby; second
baseman, Billy Fox; right fielder. Pat
Meaney; shortstop, Danny Shay, and
utility man Bert Dolmas. Bill Massey
and Jimmy Downey of the Toronto club
are also believed to have signed with
Harris, but the report cannot be con
firmed. Massey Is a first baseman and
negotiated with, the Portland team last
season, and Downey is an inflelder of
considerable ability. Both men would
make valuable additions to any Coast
- Kay - cure - Beckley.

Local Team Hearly Completed.
Th inrai team is about completed and
the lineup for 1904 will be announced
in a few days. Of the players aireaay
signed they constitute the pick of last
year's team, and form an excellent nu
cleus for the new team.
Manager Ely and his men will start
spring practice in Bakersfleld about the
20th of February. This will . enable the
men to have at least one month's train
ing under the watchful eye of the man
ager In which to get in condition.
Ike Butler, ,who was somewhat over
weight last seaaon, is now In Bakersfleld
and working hard to get down to "fight
ing" weight before his teammates ar-
Phil Vadeau and Buck Freeman are In
town and are anxious for the practice
work to begin or at least have a few
days of good weather so they could take
a dally run to the ball park. It is pos
sible that Manager Ely may send these
two players to the training quarters
some time next week, and if Francis ar
rives he will accompany them.
The prospects this year are brighter
than ever and as all the clubs are being
strengthened by the addition of the best
players that it la possible to secure,
a hotly contested season is expected. .

ganized it will be hard to "tell which

: The .athletes of the Multnomah Ama
teur Athletic club are taking great In

which are to be selected the men who
are to try f6r the honor ot competing in
the Olympic games at the Louisiana
Purchase exposition at St Louis in July.
A team will - probably : be selected to
represent . the Pacific coast as a whole,
In the world's, fair , carnival, and the
men to be selected by competition In
the different localities. The local men
will compete with the athletes of the
Northwest' and from that meeting a
team will be selected to battle for the
honors with the. athletes of California,
those making the best records in the
meet to represent the .Pacific slope at
the fair. - '- : . i-' -.- '
Best Plam So Par Advanced
The above plan seems 'to.be the most
feasible plan so far advanced for con
sideration, as a team consisting of the
pick - -of the coast athletes would be
more representative as a body and would
consist of the very best material.
From among the many athletic insti
tutions o the coast an excellent team
should be organised that would ' prove
itself worthy of the honor of repre
senting this vast territory.
That the .coast can produce capable
men to represent it among the world's
selections goes without saying, for many
of the best amateurs in America own
their nativity to the locality which em
braces the states of Oregon, California,
Washington, Idaho and Nevada.
The enthusiasm among the local ama
teurs Is gaining in strength every day,
and when the call is iasued for the
track and field competition there will be
many of Portland's finest young men
Already the boxing and wrestling
classes at the Multnomah club are full
of eager competitors, who follow pro
fessor 'Acton's instructions eagerly, and
many promising men are being devel
oped. Every Man Should) be An Athlete.
Every young man in Portland, as
well as in the state of Oregon, should
take up some branch of athletic sport,
not alone that he should strive to rep
resent his state at the world's fair, but
for his own personal benefit, for there
is no such preservative of good health
as dally athletic exercise of some sort.
By keeping the body- Inperfect shape,
or as nearly perfect aa possible, by a
certain amount of athletic activity each
day, the dread enemy- of each human
being is effectually kept at a distance.
