Scott's good work In the box won for
tho Whlto Sox from the New York
Giants hero yesterday. Frommo
went In Tor tho Giants but was re
placed by Hcarne. The Sox wont In
tho third when threo hits and two
errors netted flvo runs. Lobort's
four bagger in tho first Inning jravo
tho Glaute their one run. Score:
K. H. E.
White Sox .. 7 9 0
Giants 1 C 2
Datterles: Scott and Daly;
Fromme, Hearnc and Meyers, Wlngo.
In a letter received from a party
who witnessed the gnmo last Satur
day between tho Giants and tho White
Sox ho has tho following to say: "The
splendid part of this trip Is the way in
which tho players fight for the game.
To watch It would lead one to believo
that a world's championship depended
on tha outcome of each contest. And
It's this stylo of play that Is at
trading tho great crowds to each
park In every city they visit. Tho
Sox added Trls Speaker to their line
up at St. Joseph and when they re
place MatMck and Kath, as Is their
Intention, It looks as It McGraw will
havo to add a few to his aggregation
if ho hopes to win tho majority of
tho games on tho tour.
"Everything is dono to mako tho
contests interesting and amuso tho
spectators. For Instance "Gertnany"
Schaefer cuts up and creates the com
edy, and Just beforo tho gamo bo
gins whilo New York is having its
practice Thorpe, tho world's cham
pion athleto Is sent around tho bases
to glvo tho fans an Jdea of his ex
tromo speed. And by the way, that
Indian covers about as much ground
out In left field as one would care
to note. He Is going to be a sweet
ball player somo day. Just a little
Improvement In batting and ho would
hold down a regular berth on the
Giants team during tho championship

little Hex I'nlincr, nj.el 0 months,

Tho "September Horn" hnho was
brought beforo the bureau by his
mother, Sirs. AIico I'almor, nfter
neighbors had complained to the po

HOOD RIVER'S RECALL ELECTION
OPPONENTS of (ho recall are given a powerful ariu
ltient in Hood ftivor county. Tho object lesson is so
Strong that it disgusts oven those who believe in the recall.
Hood Kiver county is in the throes of a recall election
against the eoinit.y court. The stated reason is the em
ployment, of a voa'd building expert at $o a day to super
vise the construction of highways.
The employment of a road master is sanctioned by law.
The salary paid is a modest one and the object of the court
is to obtain bettor results from tho expenditure of road
t inula than possible under the unskilled and untrained
.However, the five pinnies a day seems to a certain
disgruntled element in Hood River an enormous stipend.
The possible waste of many thousands of dollars in make
shift, construction is entirely overlooked.
Hood River cannot be called a progressive iMunty when
there are enough residents to demand a special election
upon such a trivial cause. The spitowork that engendered
the recall will probably result in efforts to repudiate
comity indebtedness as'in Klamath, if defeated in the elec
tion. It. intensifies a factional fight and prevents the har
mony essential to accomplishment. A dividend commun
ity cannot accomplish much.
The recall election in Hood River, like the referendum
election in the state, constitutes a rank abuse of the Ore
gon system which goes far to discredit it.
NO SNOW LEFT
AT CRATER L
There Is no snow nt Crater Lake,
according to 11. E. Momyer, who Is
still at tho government headquarters,
says tho Klamath Northwestern.
Mr. Momyer said the weather had
been delightful In tho park all fall
and that he expected to remain there
until the snow drove him out. IIo
further stated that tho minimum
temperaturo had been only down to
2S and tho maximum for sevoral
weeks had hovered about Gl.
"I am well and enjoying myself
hugely," said Mr. Momyer over the
phone. "Tho evenings and mornings
aro a llttlo cool and wo have hnd a
llttlo frost but for the last two weeks
wo havo certainly had delightful
weather. It has stormed only flvo
days during the entire month of Oc
tober and I anticipate being able to
remain hero several weeks longer bo
foro being driven out by tho snow. I
have my snow shoes and whllo I will
bo In no rush to try to get out during
a storm I do not care how deep the
first big snow gets 1 will be ablo to
mako my way out alone."
Mrs. Momyer left tho headquar
ters some time ago and Mr. Momyer
Is alono taking care of things there.
Ho said tne registration snowcu u
total of 62,000 people visited
lako during tho season.
Wli MATCH KING SEAL
$1 0Q0 RACE WITH ALBIA
To tho Editer:
Thero has been a great deal of talk
going around to my friends that Albla
can beat King seal and mat tney
will bet $1000.00 that be can. Now,
I don't llvo a thousand miles away,
I llvo right hero at Medford. Now,
instead of tellng so many people what
Albla can do and that you have a
thousand dollars to put up, why
don't some of you men como to see
the owner of King Seal. As I am
getting tired of so many people Jump
ing mo about this Albla, beating my
home King Seal, and that you people
say he can. Now If you people want
to match these two horses for $1000
a side, I will match King Seal with
Mbla or any other horso that's In
Jackson county for $1000 a side bar
ring none, aud as a guarantee that
my money Is ready, I have left a
$100 check with tho editor of tho
Medford Mall Tribune, to raco best
threo heats out of five. Now if you
people mean business, como through
with your thousand dollars and wo
will raco. It not, I would thank you
people for Just to quit talking about
what you can do with King Seal,

TO BE CANDIDATE
GUAXT8 PASS, Ore., Oct. 30. In
terest In the coming city election
hns Increased with tho announcement
by Mnyor Hobort G. Smith that ho
will not bo a camlldato for reelection.
Mr. Smith is now serving his second
term as mayor, and on the occasion
of each election has been the center
of n bitter campaign. Tho tlquor
question was paramount In the prev
ious campaigns, but It now seems
probablo that It will not bo brought
Into the coming one, the local option
law having removed It from tho city
campaign. Smith was elected each
tlmo by tho anti-saloon people, on n
platform of high license nnd law en
forcement. It Is thought thnt with Smith out
of the race his support will be turned
to Councilman A. A. Porter. Other
names mentioned In connection with
tho office are tho-o of E. T. McKln
stry, C. L. llobart, II, L. llcrzlngor,
George Lundberg nnd President Kroh
of the Commercial club. Thero Is
no fight on any of tho prcsont coun
cllmcn. The council will have much
work to do this year, as tho build-
jng 0( tnJ novv railroad to tho Apple
goto valley, bonds for which wore
voted at tho special election last
week, will bo under its direction.
