Invited to enter the individual compe
tition for the world's championship to
be held in Madison Square Garden. In
New. York, on May 24 to June 12. dur
ing the three weeks given to the na
tional championships for men by the
National Bowling association. Final
arrangements for the tournament have
been perfected with the United Tour
nament company, which has been or
ganized to handle the National Bowl
ing association events.
Thi is the only tournament for wo
men that will be held in the big gar
den. There will be no entry or other
fees of any kind, and every competitor
will have free admission to the garden
during the tournament. Club member
ship is unnecessary, as the entries are
all made by individual registration. In
recognition of the eastern ladies' bowl
tag congress, an organization of 300 or
more members,, that has done so much
for bowling among women tajthe east,
the garden event will be conducted
under Its rules, which are the same as
those of the New York Bowling asso
ciation.

Not since the early '90's has Baker
City had a street railway. At that
time there was a line that ran down
Front street and west on Center street
to the O. R, & N. station. Horses
were used as motive power and finally
it was abandoned. "
General interest in the new enterprise
prevails and it is understood Portland
people have raised sufficient capital to
put in the line.
Domestic Science At Baker
Encouraged by the excellent exhibit
made by Baker City school for : the Se

make an effort to add a course of do
mestic science to the school work next
year. Last year he inaugurated man
ual training and it has proven so thor
oughly satisfactory that the entire com
munity is anxious for this kind of train
ing to continue. ; With domesticrscier.cf
added, the course of study in the city
schools will be complete, and occording
to Professor Churchill, "no boy will be
graduated who cannot use a saw, and
no girl will ever receive a diploma who
cannot cook a square meal and darn a
sock. '.

Persons Ordered Away For Examina

Oue of the curious phases of life at
the Molokai leper settlement was il
lustrated when seveu persons from the
settlement were taken to Honolulu,
in Hawaii, a few days ago to be re
examined to determine whether they
are now afflicted with leprosy or not.
They are all persons who have been
at the settlement a considerable time.
most of tHern several years. They are
to be re-examined because when the
members of the legislature visited the
settlement some weeks ago these indi
viduals showed uo outward sign of the
disease, and their re-examination was
asked for by some of the legislators.
But when these seven were directed
by the superintendent of the settle
ment to get ready to go: to Honolulu to
be re-examined they all demurred.
They declared they did not want to
leave the settlement, even if it should
be proved that they were free from
the terrible disease. They asked that
assurances be given them that if they
were found ; free from leprosy they
would be permitted to return to the
settlement as kokuas or helpers to
lepers.'.
This is not at all an unusual experi
ence, l hough the dread of being sent
to, the settlement is so great among
the Hawaiians that they hide their af

sible, once they live at the settlement

prizes. Each woman will roll three
games, total pins to count, as in the
individual competition for the men
and boys. Games will be rolled only
in the afternoon.
Quite as much interest has been
awakened among the women In the
west over this tournament as among
those In the east aDd in Greater New
York. Miss Gertrude Hull of Chicago,
who won the Olympic championship
at St. Louis; Miss Birdie Kern, daugh
ter of Martin Kern of St. Louis, the
former national champion; Miss Herr
mann, daughter of Garry Herrmann of
Cincinnati, chairman of the national
baseball commission; Miss Bergman of
Philadelphia and many women bowl
ers of note will all be competitors for
the diamond medal.
In the garden they will meet for the
first time the best of the east, among
them Mrs. P. J. Riddell. who defeated
Mrs. Hull at Rochester last year, and
all the stars of the eastern ladies'
bowling congress.
In this competition, as in that for
the men and boys, where tournament
conditions make the result extremely
open, every woman bowler will have
an equal chance to win the diamond
trophy and the world's championship.
Rather remarkable are the results
when a person with an inclination for
mathematics ' delves Into figures per
taining to the national bowling cham
pionship tournament. .
On the basis that r00 five man teams
will compete, there will be 30.000
games rolled 300,000 frames. Figur
ing on eighteen balls to a game, 540,-
000 deliveries will be made.
With each- ball traveling eighty-five
feet and back, or 170 feet to each de
livery, means that 91,800.000 feet, or
about 17.386. miles, will be the dis
tance covered by bowling balls In the
garden. This is six times the distance
between New York and San Francisco.
Each ball weighing sixteen pounds,
a total weight of 8,640,000 pounds will
be lifted, or about 4,320 tons, the
weight of an ocean steamship. Each
bowler will lift and handle nearly half
a ton. '. , "
Approximately 5,400,000 pins will be
knocked down, a weight of 17.550,000
pounds, or 8,775 tons. The combined
weight of the balls delivered and the
pins knocked do.wn will be greater
than the weight of the steamship St
Louis.
The time for bowling will extend
over eighteen days. There will be
$50,000 In prizes. $1,000 of which will
be given to the winning five man team-

Stencils to Replace Inspection Labels
- on Incoming Baggage.
Dishonest travelers returning on
ocean liners will hereafter have diffi
culty in eluding customs regulations,
according to a Washington dispatch.
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury
Reynolds has issued an order directing
that the paper labels heretofore pasted
on baggage to indicate that it had been
examined by the customs inspectors be
replaced in the service by erasible
stencils fixing the mark directly on the
baggage. --.'".
Customs officials have long complain
ed that the pasted labels are frequent
ly removed by the owners of the bag
gage after the custom house is passed
and then used on other baggage not
yet examined. The stencils will stop
this practice, and as the ink to be used
comes off easily the marks will not
last long enough to confuse officials.
