(Hetrrt gpeclat Krrrk.) '
New York. Feb. 23 James J. Jeffries

regarding his willingness to meet the
winner of the Sharker-Msnroe contest:
"As I have'repeatedly said. I am will
ing to defend my title against the win
ner o the Bharkey-Munroe bout, no
matter who It Is. I am ready to fight
either Sharkey or Munroe, but to avoid
an mieunuersianaing a to my position,
I wish to make it clear in a few'polnts.
In the first place, Vwtfeh our match to
take place within the next three months,
some time before. June 1. As the cham
pion. 1 think I am entitled to this small
consideration. ; . - , . i
"Secondly, I wish the battle to be
held in Baa Francisco. , Personally, I
do not like that city any better than
any other, but I think it is clear to all
that Ban Francisco is the only city in
which a battle of such importance could
be successfully pulled off," .

V. S. Howard, riding Jim Budd II,
won the Mrs. Downing cup', in (he Hunt
club paper chaso yesterday afternoon.
President F. O. Downing was second,
beating out Judge A. H. Tanner by
three lengths, while E. R. Eldredge was
on the heels ot Judge Tanner. ' The win
ner's margin was a little over' throe
lengths. , ., '"' : ?-f
- James Nlcol came in first on Bernato,
but hjs mount was not eligible, owing to
his never having been through a paper
chase before, so the cup went to Mr,
Howard without question.
Washington's birthday of . 1904 will
be long remembered by, the members of
tbe Portland iium ciuo as one or ine
gala days inr the history of the club.
While ihe day was not ideal for a r)de,
yet the riders encountered but one mile
of mud during the whole course, the
exact length of which was-lOH miles.
The course was a perfect one from
a sportsman's view, ana was the nrst
one ever ridden by the Portland Hunt
club that waa free from blinds. Not a
blind marked the entire distance, and
this made things decidedly -Interesting,
because everjr rider waa on the anxious
seat looking for the annoying twists that
are so misleading. .
E. M. Lazarus experienced great diffi
culty with Morengo about a mile after
the start and was unseated, thereby los
ing a place In the race, as his mount
ran away.
rrank Bobertsoa Thrown.
About - two miles from : the finish,
Frank Robertson's horse, Nellie Bufofd,
madej a feeble attempt to go over a
hurdle and instead turned a complete
somersault, throwing Mr. Robertson
heavily on his back. The riders stopped
and assisted their thrown companion to
his mount, and giving him the trail,
sped away. ' .
Coming to the close ot the' race the
pace was fast and the leaders were in
a bunch. As the riders approached the
entrance to the race track some mis
creants chopped down several good sized
trees and erected a six-foot-hurdle af
ter the hares had laid the paper. Into
this hurdle the entire bunch rushed tear
ing it away before them. The force was
so. great, however, that horses could
not make the sharp turn Into the fence
opening.' Mr. Downing was in the lead
at this point and lost considerable
ground. Finally the turn was made and
the horses rushed onto the track at the
three-eighth pole and started .for the
finish, making It in 40 seconds. Ber
nato was In' the lead, Jim Budd was
within 60 feet and then came Baby.
Mr. Downing urged Baby along, but the
ground lost at the entrance' was too
much to overcome and second place was
the best position she could maintain.
Howard crossed the wire first with three
lengths tos spare. -
Contrary to reports, Mr, . Chase was
not thrown from his mount. As that
troublesome hurdle waa reached at the
gate entrance, Oregon Kid bolted badly
and Mr. 9hase didn't have sufficient
strength . left to turn kis mount into
the track. By the time he got Oregon
Kid faced around he heard the cheer
ing at the grandstand for thev winner
as he dismounted and walked in. .
The hares, Mr. Strain and Mrs. Down
ing, laid 65 pounds of paper on the trail,
and were congratulated on account of
their fine work. - -
Last evening the members gathered at
the club headquarters and enoyed din
ner, during the course of which the In
cidents of the chase were recounted. Mr.
Cruthera -was the staster and also one of
the judges. Mr. Will O. MacRae was
the other judge. The tide consumed 90

, What this country needs right now
is a president without a chip on his
shoulder. On account of tha Russo
Japanese war we need a conservative
man at the helm. Mr. Roosevelt has
many admirable qualities, but he is a
little too strenuous for the situation at
present. At least, this is the sentiment
advocated by the conservative ; men of
the east."
This statemenf was made last evening
by W. E. Hlldreth, proprietor of the
West End hotel, one of the well-known
hontelrles of Long Branch, the New
York Rummer resort. Continuing along
this line, Mr. Hlldreth said:
"drover Cleveland is the strongest
man in the Democratic party today. If
ha were nominated a large number ot
'Republicans would give him their vote.
It is doubtful If he will accept the
nomination. The only thing that could
be urged against Cleveland is the third
term proposition, and there is neither
rhyme nor reason In that
v "From al( Indications we are in dan

conservative enough In his .pollcyv for
such a situation. Let the nations of

would be-a great thing for.ua if we
steered clesr of the trouble. We could
get the plums aa they fall, but war is
costly and 1 we gjit,into It we will not
profit much;
"The Philippines have cost us more
than we will get back in 50 years. We
never can get back the. blood of the
sterling young Americans that watered
the shores of those South Pacific
Islands.- As Sherman said, War is
hell!' We are mixed up with the
Panama republic without good reason
and have to see it through. Secretary
Hay seeme to have a good head, as is
seen by tha order sending American
war vessels to Hong Kong. Young
Americans are frequently hot-neaded
and it is well to keep them where they
cannot cause International complica
tions by some rash act.
"In my opinion the sympathies of the
American people will probably undergo
a change before this war is over. Rus
sia was the country that kept the hands
of Europe off during our war ' with
Spain. She has shown friendship for us
in mapy, ether ways. One. prominent San
Franciscan had tha courage to come out
recently and brave public opinion - by
saying so, and his words cHused people
to do a great deal of thinking.".
Mr. Hlldreth was on the .Pacific coast
1? years ago. He says there has been
a wonderful growth since then. Port

Blood-curdling tales of the sea can be
told by the satlora on board the French
bark Vercingetorlx. which arrived in
port .Friday fromBan Francisco.
During tne vessel s criei smy in m
. --V .. .... . . ,. .
harbor of the Bay city, a murder, a sui
vide and a serious accident occurred on
board, and one of the members of the
crew was .sent to the penitentiary ior
six years.
Bad luck seem to; have wen cioseiy
following tjje Vercingetorlx for ,the past
year. In that time she has had four
different captains, one of 'whom lost his
reason and is now confined in a French
lunatic asylum. Captain Martin, the
present Bkipper, assumed charge or tne
vessel In the California metropolis. He
has been with her about eight weeks,
the trip up the coast to tha Columbia
river being his first in that position.
Shortly after the- ship reached Ban
Francisco, which was about two months
ago,, the first thing that the sailors did
was to go ashore In quest of a good
time. Vincent La Corvee, one of their
number, imbibed' freely and became
quarrelsome. Returning to the ship he
went into the forecastle, where he met
Vincent La Meur whom he began to
abuse. Words finally led to blows. . Al
though drunk. La Corves - was getting
the best of the fight. The men strug
gled out on the deck and a toss and
tumble scene was enacted. La Meur
waa finally thrown down, and he began
to bite and claw the face of his stronger
adversary. Tl.-ls enraged La Corvee,
who Immediately drew a knife and fat
ally stabbed La. Meur. First Mate Jean
Le Oal attempted to separate the men,
but he reached them too late. The
wounded sailor was conveyed to a hos
pital, where he breathed his last four
hours later.
La Corveo was overpowered and
placed in irons, The next day he was
given up to the authorities, and was
tried on the charge of manslaughter.
found guilty and given a sentence of six
years in the penitentiary.
First Mate Jean LeQal says 'that pre
vious to. the quarrel the men had been
the best of friends. Each of them was
about 2 years of age. He attributes
the difficulty to drink.
Two days prior to the fatal fight
Joseph David, a young apprentice, was
sitting on a yard working with the rig
ging. .He lost his balance and fell to
the deck below, breaking his right arm
at the elbow. The bone was badly shat
tered, - and large fragments had to be
removed. He will bea cripple for life
and was sent to his home in tha old
country.
About this time Carpenter Chardln
was discharged for some offense, and he
went ashore either to celebrate the
event or drown his sorrow. His ship
mates never knew, for that is the last
time they ever saw him alive.
On the night of January 20 a noise
was beard on deck, and in the vicinity
from which the sound came aome one
was heard to utter the words "Father!
mother!" '
The following day all the poor fel
low's clothes were found scattered about
the deck,, and later his body was found
floating 'in the bay. The first officer
says it was a plain case of suicide.
While at San Francisco the Veroin
getorlx was taken on the dry dock and
given a thovough cleaning. She was put
in good sailing trim, for she made the
run up the coast in just seven days. On
February 11 and 12 a distance of 270
miles was covered during the 24 hours.
The ship is under charter to Balfour,
Gutherie A Co., to load grain for the
United Kingdom.

As soon as climatic conditions will
permit tha government will begin the
work of reconstructing the army post
at Fort Gibbon, Alaska, destroyed by
fire last November. On account of the
expense" and the time limit, tha summer
season in the northland being so short.
the logs for the structures will be pur
chased in Alaska and sawed into lum
ber at the post sawmill. This Informa
tion is iurnisnea oy uen. .Frederick Fun
ston. who waa in tha city from tha Van
couver barracks a short time yesterday
afternoon. , "
"One oof the barracks buildings was
burned down and also the commissary
store," said General Funston. "Fort
Gibbon Is the central point for a large
industrial region in Alaska and the work
of reconstruction will be pushed to
completion aa soon as possible. Civil
lans will be employed to do the work as
far aa practicable and soldiers will do
the remainder.
"The telegraph lines and the cable in
Alaska are now working satisfactorily.
I am unable to say when I shall make
a tour of Inspection in that country. A
good deal of construction work Is In
progress at the Vancouver barracks st
this time and there is plenty to occupy
tne time ot mcers here.
Questioned regarding the war situa
tion in the Orient, General Funston was
exceedingly cautious.
"The reports reaching as are very
meager," he said, "and many of them
fare founded on rumor. This Is due to
the failure of the war correspondents to
get to the front and to the work of the
censor. For this reason I should not
care to be quoted aa expressing any
definite opinion on the situation. This
much I will say, however, the relative
superiority as regards affairs at present
depends to. a large extent on the injury
to the Russian navy. This we do not
know. I can safely say that Japan
herself does not know the exact damage
ahe has inflicted. The Russians are the
only people that know the full extent
of the damage done the Russian navy."
Decoration of 6,000 Flags.
'Imagine a store draped and decorated
with. 1,000 American flags. Is not the
picture you' draw a beautiful one? If
you would have it in real life, visit the
store of Olds, Wortman A King. All
this week a- "Colonial Bale" is in prog
ress, and in this event the store has
been so beautifully and patriotically
beautified. , Tha sale, which opened yes
terday, started with a rush, and bids
fair to equal any other ever Inaugurated.
Between a beautiful store and tempting
bargains. Portland housewives have a
struggle to keep away. .
