New Boat I: Jfs 110 to I? iFiVhtinp Sherman's
New Boat
Is Surely
a Beauty
Nearly 200 Salemites Enjoyed
a Trip on the Grahamona
the Finest Equipped Boat
Ever on the River
The 0. C. T, Company's new boat,
tho Grahamona, Is a beauty, as the
nearly 200 excursionists who yester
day accepted the company's Invitation
to take a ride down the river on her
Sunday, will one and all testify. It
was a rather dreary morning, heavy
fog and rather cold, and besides, Sa
lem folks have a habit of not getting
outside of their breakfasts Sunday
morning early enough to get anywhere
bofore 9 o'clock, but In spite of this
combination, nearly 200 took the trip
down as far as Lincoln, which was
i cached at 9:fi0, Soon after starting
back tho fog lilted, and the return trip
was delightful, tho Btaunch little
steamer going past the city on her re
turn, and a couple of miles up tho
The Grahamona Is the finest of the
company's boats, Is thoroughly equip
ped, splendidly furnished and his plen
ty of power to negotiate any rapid or
current of the Willamette.
She is 150 feet over all, SO feet beam
and 18-inch draft, light. She is per
mitted to carry 308 passengers, and on
excursions 412, and her big cabins can
accommodate them, too.
All who enjoyed the company's hos
pitality yesterday will long remember
the trip, as one of tho delightful little
unexpected things that brighten life
And warm us up toward our neighbors
and townsmen.
There are hundreds of Salemltes
who have never taken the trip by boat
to Portland, but It is safe to say that
some on the excursion yesterday made
up their minds to do so, and among
them was the writer. Every Salemlte
should know something of the. river,
Its possibilities and the country tribu
tary to it, and the only way to get this
knowledge Is to make a few trips over
It and thus see and realize the Impor
tance of the river to Salem's trade.
Willamette university football team
went to Forest Grove Saturday, where
they defeated the Pacific university by
a score of 40 to 0. The score about
represents the relative strength of the
two teams, although Willamette was
not at its best by a good deal. Shaver,
for the Pacifies, was good at punting,
but the whole game was monotonous
and uninteresting. Shaver made sev
eral substantial gains for his team.
The center of .Pacific's team was
strong, but the ends were weak, and
It was here the 'varsity made their at
Willamette's second team played a
game with the Independence high
school team at that phce Saturday
which proved to bo very close, The
score was 7 to 0 In favor of Willam

tue 'varsity scored a victory, as the
Independence boys were in the tfame
all the time. Tin Wil!amettc3 made
their only touchdown In tho fi.'st half
of the game, and In the i-econd half
the locals came bncn with sucli force
that it looked as if they would score.

Taft Says Wilson's Elec
tion would Be a Calamity
Voters to Choose Between
the Actual and Assured
Washington, Oct. 28. Red hot de
nunciation of Governor Woodrow Wil
son and the Democratic party marked
the return to tho executive offices here
todny of President Taft. The attack,
which was In the form of a campaign
statement, asserted that Wilson's elec
tion would bo as great a menace to the
prosperity of tho country as that
which followed Grovcr Cleveland's
election In 1892.
'The Democrats," the statement
said, "profess to discover cause for
amusement In the alleged Republican
claims of credit for this year's abun
dant crops. Tho only credit the Re
publicans claim Is the Republican policy-protection
for American Indus
try which maintains the best market
In the world, a homo market for fann
ers to sell In, while foreign markets
have been invaded by both the farmer
and manufacturer.
"The voter's choice Is not obscure.
It Is between actual and assured pros
perity, active Industry, good wages
and a flourishing home market on the
one hand, and a depression of busi
ness, paralysis of Industry, loss of em
ployment and general demoralization
of trade, both at home and abroad, on
the other.
'The American people have more
tlian once surprised those who think
that the people are being successfully
tooled. I believe a similar surprise
awaits my opponent In the coming
election on November 5."
President Taft was greeted by
scores of friends on his arrival here.
Tomorrow he will go to New York City
to launch the battleship New York.

Turks and Bulgarians Fight

from Adrianople to Black
SeaThat City Is Doomed
Sofia, Bulgaria, Oct. 2S. Official
dispatches from tho Bulgarian battlo
lino nt Adrianople and news dispatch
es reaching here today from Constan
tinople both declare that a desperate
battle between Turks and Burgiirlnns
Is raging over the wholo territory be
tween Adrhinoplo nnd tho Black sea, a
fighting line of nenrly 100 miles. The
struggle, dispatches agree, has been
In progress since Wednesday.
Latest accounts from Adrianople
here are that the city still holds out,
rain having greatly hampered tho op
erations of the besieging Bulgarian
Turkish dispatches today deny thnt
tho allies have criptured EsUllmba, on
tho line of communication between
Adrianople nnd Constantinople. If
tho reports here Uiat Esklbaba has
fallen prove true, they will Indicate
that the main turning movement of
the Bulgarians has been successful, r
and thnt Adrlnnople Is isolated, and
almost Buro to fall.
Capture Important Point.
Sofia, Oct. 28. Offlclul confirma
tion of the report thnt Bulgarian
troops havo captured EBklbaha, 60
mih(Tsotitheast of Adrianople, was re
ceived here today. Esklbaba Is but
100 miles distant from Constantinople.
The capture of Esklbaba means that
Adrianople Is cut off from all com
munication with Constantinople, the
1 Bulgarians having complete control of
tll(J Oriental railroad. Tho Turkish
troops, which comprised tho garrison
a' Esklbaba, are retreating In the dl-

With a Greek army moving on Sa

approaching from the north, the sec
ond lylkin of the allies' plan seems
near lis climax. The capture of Sa
lonika will mean that nil of the west

cut off from Constantinople, and Its
reduction will bo merely a matter of
guerilla fighting.

By orders from his physicians,
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt's

den next Wednesday evening w
bo limited to 30 minutes. Al
though tho former president Is
rapidly recovering of the effects

doctors fear tho tax on his
strength should ho speak longer.
Colonel Roosevelt enjoyed nn
other walk outdoors today. It
was announced that ho still suf
fers occasional pains from tho
Governor Will
Take a Hand in
Enforcing Law
"If I find that tho laws are not be
ing enforced nt Klamath Falls and I
havo every reason to believe that they
nro not being enforced, as It nppenrs
the sheriff and (ho city officials arc
allowing houses of prostitution to go
rnniolested I shall take a hand In en
forcing the laws there." So stated
Ccvernor West t,dny after receiving a
reply from Mayor Nichols, of Kliunath
Falls to the governor's telegram of
Friday In which the executive de
manded to know what steps tho mayor
proposed to (alio toward enforcement
of the law.
In his reply Mayor Nicholas charges
that tho Klamath Falls Northwestern
has published numerous fako Btorles
about the lack of law enforcement in
that city with a view to causing tho
resignation of both tho mayor and of
the police force. Tho mayor claims
that the lawless conditions of which
the Northwestern has made publica
tion do not exist and nevor have ex
isted. Tho difficulty between tho
Klamath Falls newspaper and the city
officials, and In which Governor West
has been asked to take a hand, arose
over tho alleged assault iiHn R. Vance
Hutchlns, a reporter on tho staff ct
the Northwestern, by Policeman Hull
whllo tho mayor, the chief of police
and other officials looked on without
offering to Interfere
Governor West stated further when
Interviewed todny:
"I will seo that, tho matter Is thor
oughly Investigated. I cannot under
stand why the mayor and the chief of
pollco should stand by and see a peace
ol fleer UHHUilt a citizen of tho town,
and claim that the laws aro being en
forced, when ns It now appears, tho
policeman has pleaded guilty."
It takes a clever man (o sell out ad
