As to silks, Mr, Humes does nut ex

to 17 score and the Lincolnites elimi

Ashland and Silverton won their right
to meet in the senmi-finals last night
when Ashland defeated Hood River
with a 49 to 12 walk away and Silver
ton rung up a ii to 16 victory over
tho Marshfield basketers.
The Salem-Ashland clash this morn
ing was a surprise to Oregon fans as
Ashland was heraldted as one o-f the
best teams in the state and a probable
combatant in the fitnal series. Thfl
southern Oregon squad failed to play
up to the form they showed last night,
while Salem played a whirlwind game
from start to finish. Satem led at the
end of the half with a 16 to 7 score.

SILVERTON AND SALEM
LEAD IN STATE CONTEST.
University of Oregon, Eugene, Mar.
15. The Lincoln high basketball team
of Portland won the first game of the
state basketball tournament here to
day. Lincoln drew Eugene in a lottery
for places and defeated the fust valley
team by a score-of 23 to 10.
Silverton Defeats Astoria.
In the second game of the after-
inoon s scries Silverton slipped a win
over on Astoria by a count of 20 to 17.
This game was fast and furious from
start to finish, and while neither team
played exceptional basketball they were
evenly matched. Astoria was anead at
tho end of the first period 9 to 8, and
the lead changed hands several times
during the conflict. Astoria can blame
her defeat to the fact that Hulbert had
an off day on shooting fouls. Out of
14 chances to gather a point Be con
verted only 7.
Silverton had considerable luck dur
ing tho afternoon. Morley nio.de one
beautiful shot from tho center of the
floor that brought the crowd to its
feet. Harwood, forward, and MKtnney,
center, played the best game for Silver
ton, while Lee and Hulbert get the hon
orable mention for the Astoria quintcn.

Standard List Not Changed
la Today's Short Session
New York, Mar 15. The Evening
Sun financial review today says:
While there were numerous issues
which were bid up briskly at thcopen
ing of today's short session of the
stock market, the Standard list was not
materially changed nor did it present
any feature of more than passing in
terest. As trading developed, more and
more irregularity gave a spotty appear
ance which was not dissimilar from the
Surface manifestations of yesterday.
The steel and copper shares were
again soft. The 'motor and distilling
issues were little more than firm, al
though they had some strong moments
early. American International. Central
Leather, Mexican Petroleum and Unit
ed States Rubber were well bought The
rails, like the Industrials, were dispos
ed to case off in very light dealings.
