BALL PLAYERS IMPER- VIOUS TO DEFEAT .Portland is to be included in the itinerary of a new line comprising six modern freighters which will go into service this fall between Boston and Pacific coast ports, operated by the Emery Steamship Company of the Massachusetts metropolis and Hind. Rolph & Co. of San Francisco. At least four or five of the steamers will have capacity for handling 4,000,000 feet of lumber at a trip, as they will be of S0O0 tons burden. Announcement of the proposed es tablishment of the service was made for the first time Tuesday by W. H. Randell. president of the Emery Steamship Company, who arrived in Portland, via San Francisco, Tues day. While President Emery was in San Francisco the plan of his company consolidating with Hind, Rolph & Co for the establishment of the new ser vice was discussed at length. The San Francisco firm will construct two of the steamers for the new line, and a liKe numoer win uw turuou uut iu New England yards for the Emery interests. The latter concern owns the steamer Pacific, built about two years ago for the express purpose of beine oDerated in the lumber and! general freight trade between Boston, Portland and other points on this coast. The steamer Atlantic, sister to the Pacific, was sold by the Emery com pany since the European war started. Soon after the construction of these vessels they were placed In service out of Boston to this coast, but the war came on, shipping became more or less stagnated on the route chosen for them, and finally the line was abandoned. "But a much bigger and better service Is to be established," said President Randall. "Six steamers are to be placed on the route. On this coast they will make regular calls at San Pedro, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. In the East the shipyards are overrun with busi ness, but I know of yards in New England where our company will be able to have two steamers built. "So far as trade conditions now are concerned, there will be no dif ficulty in obtaining sufficient cargoes to keep six steamers in continuous service. Lumber will make up the cargoes they will carry from this side. Comine from Boston they will carry general freight. The new steamers will be modeled to some extent after the type of vessels be longing to the American-Hawaiian line. The first year I am confident that orders could be placed In the New England states for 100,000,000 feet of Pacific coast lumber. Before I left Boston space on steamers was being sought for the shipment of 15,000,000 feet of lumber from this coast to that section." President Randall also stated that in picking up cargoes for 'shipment from Boston to this side of the con tinent much of it could be procured as far Inland as Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. He explained that such a method is being carried out success fully with the companies running lines out of New York. St. Helens Team Takes Third Game of Scries at Rldgefleld. The game at Rldgefleld last Sun day terminated in another victory for St. Helens. The local ball team faced a battery that is considered among the best on the Columbia river, but nevertheless they managed to inflict a defeat with a score of 3 to 0. "Red" Lund pitched a shut-out game and al lowed only two hits. Aside from this, the main feature of the game was the remarkable hit ting of Elchman. Out of four times up he rapped out two two-baggers and a single. in the last three games, also the first three, in fact the only three this seasou, Lund has allowed a measly light hit and has struck out forty seven batters. His starring is a fore gone conclusion. Turn out and watch the smoke. St. Helens. AB H R PO 6 2 4 4 5 4 4 4 4 0 COUNTY COURT PASSES RESOLUTION COMMEND. IXO ATTITUDE IN REFUSING TO ARBITRATE. .

UNCLE'S FOX FARM Industry Has Grown to Enormous Proportions and Fabulous Returns. Probably a good many of our read ers were surprised to learn that Uncle Sam had just sold twenty silver foxes at $312 a pair for breeding purposes and wondered where he got them. It seems so out of the line of ordin ary functions of government admin istration. But it appears that there are many more silver foxes in the government reservation on the Prlbl loft Islands, where the seals used to congregate, and Uncle Sam is devot ing the time and energies of his em ployes there to doing a little business in fine furs. The price may seem large to many, but if the foxes are of good grade it is exceedingly low. Up in Prince Edward Island they have gone mad over silver foxes in the last few years and the price has risen to $40,000 yes $40,000, for a single pair. There are thousands of foxes in the Island mostly controled by stock com panies and their estimated 'value is more than of all the rest of the live stock in the region. The foxes are not killed for their skins, but when one dies the fur gets to market, the price for the best skins being about $250, or waa at that figure before the war. It is presumed that mem bers of the royal families are not buying furs so lavishly as formerly, Reports from Prince Edward Island are that the price are being main talned for the live animals, but as Beaver Valley Taxpayers League No. 1 was organized at the Frank Stehman schoolhouse. In Beaver Val ley, April 16, with a splendid list of charter members, numbering thir teen, as follows: Jared Wilson, Charles Dutro, Wm. Cain, W. F. Stehman, Chas. A. Bry son, Henry L. Stickler, R. F. Rucker, G. W. Girt. Frank Wilson, D. E. Steh man, B. C. Whitham, Mrs. J. Ber endts, L. Sonneland. The following officers were elected: President, Mrs. Mlnta Wilson; vice president, Mrs. J.

Vernonia, May 5 (Special) The forty-ninth quarterly session of the Columbia County Pomona Grange was held last Saturday, May 1st. at Vernonia, R. N. Lovelace, W. M., pre siding. The attendance was very good, considering the fact that only a few were present from granges out side the valley. The members of Vernonia Grange had made prepara tions for an old-time grange day, and the good old grange spirit prevailed throughout the entire session. The session was called to order in the forenoon for the transaction of routine business, atter which an in termiBslon was taken for noon iu or--der to partake of one of those sump tuous dinners tor which the grange Is famous. The report of the subordinate granges showed that they are in good financial condition with a substantial membership; one new grange was or ganized and one reorgaulzed. A number of resolutions were adopted during the afternoon session upon various questions pertaining to public as well as grange matters. Some of those of more general inter est are the following: Commending the county court upon the stand they luive taken as against the Consolidated Contract Company in not allowing that com pany for more than the engineer's es timate of work done on the highway; Instructing the delegates to the state grange, which meets In Tillamook next week, to vote for Gresham for the meeting place of the state grange In 1916; and instructing the state delegates to ask the state grange to Initiate a bill to amend the road laws so tn at the distribution of the gen eral road tax shall be left to the vot ers of the several road districts. At the open session in the evening, an excellent program of recitations and music wad rendered, and a talk made by J. H. Collins on the work of the grange. The open session well attended. A class of sixteen was initiated into the fifth degree. The following resolution adopted: Resolution. Resolved, that this Pomona Grange commends the county court for the stand they have taken on the issue between the county court and the Consolidated Contract Company, to the effect that the Consolidated Con tract Company should not be allowed any more than is JuBtly due them for road work done, as shown by the es timates of the state highway en gineer; and that, the controversy be settled In the proper court.

State probable amount. (Oregon Voter) Why try to tear down the reputa tion of a man in advance? Why Imply that the new state high way engineer is under the control and domination of a ring of contractors? Does it help the good roads cause to cast baseless reflections on Gov ernor Wlthycombe's appointee, mere ly because he was selected to succeed a man whose removal was the inevitable result of controversal storms? It Is hard enough on Mr. Cantlne to have to take a job that has so many perplexities; so many difficult situations that were not even created by the present state administration. Why not give him a word of en couragement, Instead of vengeful Insinuations? The Oregon Voter doesn't know whether Mr. Cantlne is a good mau or a crook. We do not know whether he Is competent or Incompetent to fill the thankless Job to which he haB been appointed. We assume that Governor Withycombe would not knowingly appoint a crook. We as sume he has enough loyalty to the state he loves and enough pride In himself as a man and our governor to select the best man he could se cure for the money. Only time will tell whether the choice was a good one. Meanwhile, let's help make the Cantlne administration a success, for the sake of Oregon as well as simple justice. It Is unfortunate that so many of our newspapers are so blinded bv partisan opposition to the Withy combe administration that they are willing to tear down the reputation of an untried man as a means of wreaking political revenge.
