THE COLLEGE SEASON
OPENS IN THE EAST
Most of the Big Teams Will Go to
New . York, March 22. College
bnseball players go to bat today.
Nearly all the big teams in the east
and west lino tip against high school
and academy teams for the first bit
of hard practice. Some of the teams
are to be tried out against league pro
fessionals. It Is practically the first
day on the diamond for the colle
gians. One or two teams appeared
on the diamond early In the week,
but for the most part the men have
been engaged In chasing grounders
and drawing down skyscrapers sent
out by their coaches. In the west
the weather and the condition of the
varsity fields delays the opening of
the season for two weeks or more
yet. Some of the nines emerge from
the gymnasiums today, but the games
will be only practice affairs. The
universities of Michigan, Wisconsin,
Illinois, Norte Dame, Iowa and others
are getting into shape rapidly, ac
cording to all reports and a success
ful season is expected.
In the East several of the big nines
play games at home today prepara
tory to leaving next week on their
southern trips. Princeton plays its
first game with Rutgers at Princeton,
and Manhattan college lines up
against Yale at New Haven. At
Washington the teams of Lafayette
and Georgetown come together, and
at South Bethlehem Lehigh begins its
season with a game with Ursinus col
lege. The University of Virginia,
which began its season earlier in the
week, has a game scheduled for today
with Woodbury Forest at Charlottes
ville. These are the only games that
make pretentions to being more than
practice affairs. One week hence,
however, the game will be on in ear
nest with a full muster of the colle
giate nines both east and west.

Yankee Steamers . After Irish Trade.
New York, March 22. W5th the
sailing of the steamship Haverford
today the Red Star Line inaugurated
its service by way of Queenstown to
Southampton and Antwerp. The new
service brings the Red Star lines In
sompetitlon with the Cunard and
White Star lines for Irish and Eng
lish immigrant and freight business.
Considering the admissions made
last spring, that the American and
Red Star lines, the two departments
of the International Navigation Com
pany, and the Atlantic Transport and
the Leyland lines were to carry on
business In a community of interest,
the new departure- of the Red Star
may be taken to indicate an aggres
sive move by American capital upon
a port whose freight and passenger
business has hitherto been exculsivo
ly In control of the British companies.

What the Telegram Say6.
The Evening Telegram, of Portland,
has this regarding the chances of
Mr. Furnish for the governorship
Much mixed Is the gubernatorial
Governor T. T. Geer thought it
necessary to hurry to Portland as
soon as the result of the convention
was heard in Salem Wednesday Ight,
and W. J. Furnish, of Pendleton, has
tened to this city when the returns of
the primaries Saturday became
For months It has been currently
reported and believed that Geer had
some understanding with Seator Si
mon. It was asserted that Geer was
to bring the Marlon county delegation
to the state convention and that the
delegation would be as clay In the
hands of Simon. Geer was also to
guarantee that every delegate he had
from any county would assist in put
ting up a legislative ticket that would
be agreeable to the senator. In re
turn for these favors, Senator Simon
was Jo deliver the nomination of gov
ernor to Geer.
As for Furnish, the leading aspirant
from Eastern Oregon, It was said that
snlce Simon had a combination with
Geer, Furnish could not very well ex-
pect assistance from the Benator at
the same time, because the objects of
Furnish and Geer were identical. This
being the case, wiseacres soon decld
ed that Furnish was an antl-SImon
man and he has been making a strong
campaign not only in Eastern Oregon,
but elsewhere throughout the state.
Under present circumstances It
would seem that Geer should expect
hd assistance from the independents
from Multnomah county in the repub
llcan state convention, and that Furn
ish should secure practically the solid
backing of the 67 delegates from this
Now comes another report to the ef'
feet that Charles H. Carey may have
the support of the Multnomah delega
tion in the state convention for gov
ernor. Judge Carey has not announc
ed himself as a candidate, but neither
has he denied the report. Unless he
shall announce himself as In the race
Furnish must be generally conceded
to have a long lead over all competi
The Multnomah county delegation
wjll have but C7 votes in the state
convention, out of 346, however, and
even if Carey should enter the race.
Furish would still have an excellent
chance to land the nomination.
Comes From the Senate Com
mittee on Military.
They Say That Miles' Discipline
Wiouid Cause Trouble to the Pres
ident iSo Perhaps the Matter Will
Be Dropped by the Rough Rider for
' Washington, March 22. Warning
has been served on President Roose
velt by a number of republican sena
tors that if he attempts to discipline
General Miles because of his testl
money before the senate military
committee in antagonism to the Root
bill for the reorganization of tho
army, trouble will ensue. As a result,
the Impression prevails that the Inci
dent will be allowed to pass unnotic
ed. It Is pointed out that It will be
easier to do this because tho official
report of the hearing before tho com
mittee will not contain the alleged objectionable-language
of Miles, who al
so says the published reports of his
remarkB are grossly exaggerated.
This -nay be the result, though it I
declared the president is inclined to
resent what he calls the disloyalty of
Milles. There la nothing of an of
ficial character on which ho could
base a censure. Senator Hawloy,
chairman of the senate military com
mittee, opposes the Root bill and
says he hopes and believes the com
mittee will make an adverse report.
He says all the military men owe a
debt of gratitude to Miles for the
exhaustive exposltian he made on the
subject before the committee.
Governor Wood Comes.
Washington, March 22. Governor
General Wood, of Cuba, arrived In

ence with the president on the Cuban
problem, tho chief of which is tho
evacuation by the American authori
ties on May 1.
