BALDWIN IS
SUCCESSFUL
DREAM OF LIFE REALIZED IN
NEW COURSE
Official! of Los Angeles Racing Asso
ciation Complimented on Santa
Anita Track and Success
of Inaugural Day
"Lucky" Baldwin was the first to come
In for congratulations on the success of
Santa Anita's inaugural yesterday, and
the old horseman and land owner was
apparently happier tnan he has been for
ages.
"Years and years ago, when I first
acquired the big ranches I now own,"
said Mr. Baldwin, I often thought that
some day I would have a real race track
near where my horses, winners of the
Wggest events on the American turf, were
quartered. Little by '.lttle the idea grew,
•\nd shortly after real racing becam«
established in Southern California— at As
cot park— my plans began to materialize.
This, is the grandest spot in tho world,
and right here we have the best horses
the country can produce. I feel that my
title of 'Lucky' is appropriate.'.' And the
owner r { Santa Anita looked off across
the fields to where his Emperor of ' No
rfolk, winner of the American derby,
chafed in his stall in fretful old age.
The Baldwin colors went to the post
twlco during the day, and many times
more during the season will they flash
their black and red to the occupants oi
lawn and grand stand. The young horses
which are now being trained, sons and
daughters of the celebrated Emperor, are
expected to prove worthy of their sire,
and Mr. Baldwin may again feel the
thrill of happiness which comes after a
great race Is won by him.
The officials of the Los Angeles Racing
Rf-sociation, notary George Rose and Bar
ney Schreiber, were complimented on the
success of their venture. The "Chester
lie^ of the Ring." as Mr. Rose Is called,
backed the enterprise and gave the asso
ciation his financial tupport from the
first, utd together with Barney Schreiber
did much of tho work of promoting the
venture.
But with these and other prominent
members of the association sharing the
honors of the day, one man, F. G. Ran
<lle. must oe mentioned. As secretary Mr.
Randle worked narder ana under more
difficult conditions than did those whose
praises are sung louder, and when he saw
the fruits of nls endeavors yesterday rone
was more gratified than he.
ARCTIC BROTHERHOOD
TOSSERS TO TOUR U. S.
The manysldedness of life in Alaska is
to be exemplified anew to the American
people in a ir>anner entirely different from
anything that has gone before. Long ago
Alaskans impressed the nation with their
Industry and hardiness and ability to cope
with naUx?a> In its harshest "forms and to
overcome stubborn obstacles In the race
for success. Occasional glimpses of a
healthy iiome life, such as that which has
characterized American pioneers' exist
once during the epochs that have elapsed
wince the beginning of history on the con
tinent are caught in the pictirres and tales
of the north which have found their way
from time to time into the public prints.
That these sturdy northerners are ac
tive citizens of the republic, taking a live
and studious Interest in the affairs of
their country and communities is no lon
ger a secret. But It has been left for this
year to demonstrate to the country that
Alaskan.- have time to give to the lighter
side of life as it Is exemplified in amateur
athletic sports. The demonstrators are
from Nome, the Arctic brotherhood of
which town is sending out a number of
its young men for the purpose of meeting
the best athletes of the country at the in
teresting and strenuous game of basket-
The Arctic brotherhood basketball
team that it to try conclusions with the
teams of colleges and athletic clubs be
tween Seattle and Boston and from Mon
treal at the north to New Orleans at the
south, has gathered in Seattle.
Their tour will begin in a few weeks.
Oregon will be the first state invaded. The
trip will continue down the coast through
this state, thence across Nevada, Utah,
Colorado, Montana and the Mississippi
valley states to New York, thence through
the southern states ard back to New
York again for a new start through New
England and Canada, thence westward
along the border, first in Canada and
then In the states. The journey will ter
minate at Seattle about the first of next
April.
The Arctic brotherhood team is com
posed of a picked team made up from the
aggregations of both the Arctic brother
hood and the Y. M. C. A., though all the
players are members of Alaska's great
secret order. Among them are some men
who have made enviable records at bas
ketball In the east.
Barry Keown, captain of the Arctic
brotherhood team In the Nome contests,
and captain of the combined team that
will tour the nation, was captain of the
Knickerbocker Athletic club team of New
York during the season of 1898-9 and 1899
1900, which wpn the Metropolitan cham
pionship for those seasons. *
Don S. Alford, the captain of the Y. M.
C. A. five, who will play in the east with
his former rivals, was capta'n of the Uni
versity of Kansas Uam for several sea
sons and toured the central states', win
ning many victories for his college and
laurels for himself. Among the others
from whom the five Will be selected are
Walter S. Gaffney. C. H. Barlow, C. Q.
Mclntyre, Alfred Lo? en, Ralph Loraen,
E. Schneider, W. C. McGuire and F.
Burley.
These young men who come from the
north to contest for the American bas
ketball championship are engaged at min
ing and in business, and all of them have
had several years of individual responsi
bility in the walks of an active and rugged
life up near the arctic circle, and this has
.served to give them a stamina which their
roach says will count for much when they
clash with those who have trodden paths
that are more or less worn from much
usage.
It might be added, however, that while
the northerners are out for victories their
trip is more in the nature of a vacation
than anything else. All of them have
spent several years at hard work in the
north and they are ripe for a frolic.
McCAREY MAY BID
Representatives of Billy Papke and
Hugo Kelly met yesterday and discussed
the prospective match between the men.
While no definite dat i was set, It was
practically decided to have the encounter
New Year's day. The weight will be 154
pounds at 3 o'clock. Papke's manager
said he did not care to sign immediately,
•tiit 11 clubs which wished to bid for the
contest could be heard from.

BERKELEY, Dec. 7.— The trustees of
the Rhodes scholarship have issued a
statement of the welfare and activities of
the Rhodes scholars during the last year
that is of considerable importance to tho
people of the United States. Of the
seventy-three scholars elected In 1907
BARNEY SCHREIBER, Director
forty-five were from Ihe United States,
eight from Canada, six from Australia,
live from South Africa, five from Germany
and one each from Bermuda, Jamaica,
Newfoundland and New Zealand. The
Rhodes scholars played on the Rugby
football team against Cambridge and one
of them was elected captain of the team
for 1907-08. Six scholars represented Ox
ford against Cambridge In field sports;
four in tennis, six In lacrosse and three
lr boating.
The next qualifyinc examination for
candidates is fixed for Tuesday and
Wednesday, January 21 and 22, 1908, and
will be held at all centers throughout the
United States, and In all the colonies
where qualification is not obtained
through the affiliation of the local uni
versities with the University of Oxfora,
or by special arrangements made in the
cas 1 . of tropical colonies. The election of
scholars Is to be completed and the
names of successful competitors notified
to the trust before April 15. Steps will
then bo taken by the representatives of
the trust at Oxford to distribute the
elected scholars among the various col
leges. Elected scholars are to present
themselves at Oxford for the opening of
the term in October, 190 S.
Takes New Members
The annual initiation of members In
the Sigma Xi society was held Wednes

be obtained by the sanction of the king's
ministers and for valuable services ren
dered to Norway. Professor Davidson
has been at the university for many
years and is probably tho widest known
scientist on the Pacific coast. His work
in geography, astronomy, in the aiding
of expeditions and in the mapping of lit
tle known lands has been of Immense
value to this country as well as to for
eign countries. He Is a member of the
scientific societies of note and has re
ceived many honors at home and abroad.
He was from 1877 to 1884 a regent of the
university. He has been a prolific writer
on the subjects of engineering, geogra

BUTLER TO BUY CLASSY
BUNCH FOR EMPIRE TRACK
NEW YORK, Dec. 7.-Followlng the an
nouncement that the court of appeals had
decided in favor of the Empire City track
at Yonkers, came news today that James
Butler, the owner of the Westchester
plant, would purchase some high class
runners next spring and turn them over to
a competent transfer, tl also was stated
that Mr. Butler In the course of time
would go into the breeding Industry on a
large scale.
The court of appeals' decision came in
the nature of a surprise to many mem
bers of the Jockey club, who had been
led to believe the state racing commission
in its opposition to the Yonkers track
would be sustained. But with the matter
definitely settled the opinion was general
today that the Yonkers track would now
be taken Into tho Jockey club's fold with
out further friction. Not only a license
will bo granted next year but regular
dates will be allotted.

Indicator Handler Says League Men

Him *
James Toman, adjudicator of erroneous
curves, who has ruled the decision dy
nasty of Hen Berry's little kingdom
since the exit of the belligerent Qulgg
more than a month ago, is loud in his
declarations that the life of a baseball
umpire is not one long, peaceful bask in
tho radiance of worshipful fans.
Wlrra, wirra, wirra, as Red Perkins
would say, he rather maintains that If
his place at tnj dining hall of fame Is to
be stead.iy kept set for him— that's a
classical name for meal ticket— somebody
must proffer the necessary legal tender
for the same, all of which is coming or
supposed to be coming to him. After
dramatically uttering "ye rout" and
"s-t-r-l-k-e," and tweedling with the in
dicator during tho latter part of the sea
son at the Chutes, Jeems claims that by
right of services rendered there should
be a paltry sum of $150 headed his way
bearing his cognomen on its bill of
lading.
Through some oversight or something
lk« that on the part of the league di
rectors, James can not herald the arrival
of the lucr>-, nor is there much prom.se
of the bundle of scrip making an early
appearance. "His Obesity" mourns this
reluctance on the part of tho officials,
and has repeatedly made the remark in
tho presence of the authorities that his
happiness would be Increased one small
mite If tuey would come across with the

The league directors, however, cannot
hoar the murmur, or at least have not
given any evidence of Its reaching their
ears, and Jimmy has ceased audible pro
tests, but swears that as soon as Honey
gets done with his Jognl business in the
north lie will !,¦ „ught "to tho Chutes

PRODIGAL WAS SEASON'S
MOST SUCCESSFUL SIRE
United States Senator James W. Bailey
of Texas Is the owner of the most suc
cessful trotting sire of the season of
1907. The horse's name is Prodigal, and
before the senator bought him he was
the property of Marcus Daly. Hal
Childs, Senator Bailey's trainer, was a
pupil of the late Charles Marlni, who
was considered the best handler of
youngsters on the trotting turf.
Up to this season Childs did not ac
complish anything remarkable with Prod
igal youngsters. When the present sea
son began Childs had In his string nine
2-year-olds by Prodigal, and he put every
one of them Into the standard list— a
showing to the credit of their sire that
has not been approached by any other
horse.
Only ten 2-year-olds by Prodigal are
known to have been regularly trained
this season and as the other one was
put into the standard list by Trainer
Owings of Lexington Prodigal has at
tained a unique distinction, six being the
largest number of 2-year-olds by one
horse taking standard marks during any
previous reason.
Helen Hall, one of Prodigal's progeny,
lowered the record for 2-year-old trotting
fillies to 2:13%. Senator Bailey priues
himself on the fact that the dam of Gen
eral Watts, who reduced the record for
3-year-old trotters to 2:06%, Is by Prod
igal.

PLAYER'S FEROCIOUB COURAGE
This story may be a bit extravarant,
but It smacks of the spirit of the times:
W. J. (Jlothlor, the ex-tennis champion
of America, said at a dinner in Philadel
phia:
"Tennis Is all very well la its way. but
what Is the excitement, what Is the en
thusiasm of tennis compared to that of
football?
"Perhaps you have heard of that Penn
sylvania guard who, coming In at the
end of the lootball game, whispered to
the physician bending over him:
" "Did we win, doctor?'
" 'Yes, ha. ds down,' the physician an
swered.

son has fought a number of battles In
tho old days when the fight game was at
Its height. The boys are working out at
the S. A. A. C. rooms. Long is already
In good shape, but Thompson is still a
little overweight, but he can take oft the
extra pound., easily and go into the ring
strong.
The fight game has been kept down at
Coeur d'Alene on account of the stand
taken by the authorities in Idaho. It is
given gut that the coming fight will be
allowed by the Coeur d'Alene authorities.
SUES ADMINISTRATORS
OF DECEASED WIFE'S ESTATE
A complaint was filed yesterday In the
superior court by Camille Sentous against
John C. Sentous and Louis Sentous Jr.,
administrators of the estate of Matilda
Sentous, deceased.
Camille Sentous claims the executors
are holding lot 116 and the north ten
feet of lot 117, Clark & Bryan's Lone
Star tract, which rightfully belongs to
him. Mrs. Sentous died July 5, 1907, leav
ing her husband, Camille Sentous, and
their son, John, 9 years of age, the sole
heirs of her estate.
Sentous claims the lot In question was
acquired by him before the death of his
wife.
As a matter of convenience, he says,
the deed to the property was made in
his wife's name. He asks the court to de
clare him the owner of the property in
question.

THOMAS B. MERRY.
There should be more Intercourse be
tween San Pedro and the two northern
ports of Eureka and Portland; and the
new line consisting of the George W. El
der and Roanoke should get hold of anoth
er steamer of about the same size, to
enable Its projectors to give a five-day
schedule between San Pedro and Port
land. The difference of seasons, at least
five weeks, between Oregon and the
nnthprn portion of California, is In itself
a sufficient basis for an extensive marl
time commerce that is bound to Increase
In proportion to the facilities afforded for
Its maintenance now and Its expansion
hereafter.
People who have lived only in the inland
states car form but little Idea of the
cheapness of water transportation. The
writer was talking with some young men
who have a broom factory in Portland
about a month ago, and inquired in what
part of Oregon their broom corn was
grown.
"It is not grown ir this state at all,"
said the Portlander. "There have been
small quantities of ii grown here, but not
enough to make It an established suc
cess. The- climate Is too damp, and it Is a
staple which wants hot nights, to develop
a strong fiber."
"Where does the best come from?"
asked the writer.
"Well, our experience Is that the best
fiber obtainable comes from Colusa coun
ty, which lies on tne Sacramento river.
They grow very fine about Bakersfleld
and Fresno, but those are rai'.road towns
and the freight would come too high."
Water Rates Cheapest
"Well. Colusa Is only about one hun
dred miles this side of Sacramento, so I
should think the railway charges would
eat your head off, although It is 230 miles
nearer than Fresno and nearly 400 miles
nearer than Bakersfleld," said the writer.
"Railway charges? Oh, they don't
bother us any. We don't attempt to ship
broom corn by rail. The water is good
ejiough for us. We ship by barge from
Colusa to San Francisco— takes at least
four days, including the delay in trans
ferring from the barge to the ocean
steamer at -San Francisco; and then it Is
three days from fan Francisco here, at a
total cost of $18 per ton freight. If We
shipped by rail from Colusa to this place
it would cost U9 about $50 per ton, with
an additional charge for switching the
car from the freight depot to the factory.
Oh. no. you never can get anything to
beat the water when you want cheap
transportation."
A few minutes later the writer was on
board a river steamer, looking at the way
in which crude petroleum is fed to th»
furnaces. As all the boats on the Colum
bia and Willamette rivers are high
pressure boats the oil has to be fed to
the flames in a manner wholly different
from what it Is fed on the low-pressure
ferry boats on San Francisco bay. The
engineer was an old acquaintance, and
after closing the furnace doors he said:
"I'm just a prayin' that your oil wells
don't give out down there, for it is Just
as safe as any other kind of fuel when
you pay proper attention to It. You really
do not need a fireman in every watch
nowadays."
"How about the danger of explosions?
I asked.
"Well, you know they had one on th«
Teal the other day, and that's the only
one that I know of. On the other hand,
you know all the explosions that took
place in this state since 1850— the Gazelle,
the Senator, the Resolute and them other
boats that blew up— every last one of 'em
burned wood. Then there's another rea
son why steamboat men should fancy
oil."
"What is that?" I asked.
Is Clean Fuel
"Well, now, overhaul your memory. You
have been a captain and before that you
were a mate. What did you do every
Sunday morning when you were a mate
if the boat wasn't under way?"
"I used to get the deckhands up with
soap and scrubbing brushes to clean the
paint on the upper works," I answered
"Yes, and it took you from three to five
hours to do it. The dry cinders of that
fir wood stuck to every damp spot on the
cabin and pilot house. Now the oil burns
up so clean that nothing comes out of
the smokestacks and you don't have to
clean paint once a month. It's just as 1
tell you— Southern California oil Is a God's
blessin" to Oregon."
Just at the present waiting we are worth
more to Oregon In a commercial way than
she Is to us, as we do not raise our own
breadstuffs nor cut our own lumber. But
the exchange of products, which is tho
basis of all commerce, whether by land
or sea, could be greatly amplified if a
little missionary work were done by the
chamber of commerce or some other mer
cantile body like it.
It is true Frank Wiggins went up to
the Lewis and Clark fair, which adver
tised Portland far beyond the most san
guine of its projectors, and gave them a
good exhibit of the resources and products
of Southern California. He did well, to
be sure, but It did not go fai» enough. It
wants men to visit the country stores
throughout the state and take orders for
what they do not now carry In stock,
even if they have to give six or eight
months' credit for the sake of getting the
goods once fairly introduced. They want
old and experienced drummers, like Old
Prunes in Curtis' play of "Bam'l of
Posen," to go out into the wilderness.
Excursions a Failure
You might get up a chamber of com
merce excursion, with fare and a half
rates, and a train of seven or eight Pull
man cars starting out of the Arcade
depot. By the time they had got to
Shasta Springs they would want to drink
the tank dry. When they got to Port
land. Tom Richardson would have auto
mobiles waiting for them, to show them
the growth of the city, winding up with
a substatial hmch at the Commercial
club, and In the evening a dinner at the
chamber of c ommerce, with lots of cham
pagne and speechmaking. Every last
mother's' son would come home with a
head on him as big as an elephant— and
that's about all the good it would do.
No; it must be done in a different way
from that. It needs a list of articles
3
known to trade, that are to be handled
by wholesale houses, to be sent hence to
those houses in Portland. Then It wants
to have tho state cut up Into about six or
seven districts for the sake of expe
ditious work. We now imagine a mission
ary man coming into a country store In
the Rogue l'.iver valley, in a village of
about 600 people.
He— Good morning, sir: I want a bottle
of tincture of eucalyptus.
Storekeeper — You want which?
He— Essence of eucalyptus— great thing
to cure a cold in the. head.
Storekeeper— Never heard of It before.
Where is It made?
He— Made In Los Angeles, of course.
Write to Woodward, Clarke & Co., In
Portland, for it. By the way, have you
got any canned apricots?
Storekeeper— No. I've seen 'em in Port
laid, but never kept 'em myself.
He— Send to Allen & LewU for 'em.
Give you six months' credit on 'em, at
5 per cent discount for cash on your first
purchase.
In that w.t there are scores of articles
manufactured here that would find a
ready sale In the interior towns of Oregon
if people would only take hold of things
and push them to a conclusion. Just now
the balance of trade Is against us, be
cause we import a greater value of lum
ber and breadstuffs from Oregon than,
the value of the crude petroleum that
we sell them; and the imports Dt oil Into
Portland have increased 9V4 per cent In
the past two months, owing to the fact
that it is superseding wood and coal at
all points where water power Is not avail
able. But with anything like push and
determination on the part of Los Angeles
merchants »...e balance of trade could soon
be turned In our favor.
As I stated in a former article on sub
jects of this nature, there Is not the
slightest chance for rivalry between the
cities of Los Angeles and Portland. They
are over 1000 miles apart, and separated
by six weeks of dissim.lar climate, which
leads up to a constant interchange of
products. Therefore, instead of beget
ting antagonism between the cities, these
conditions -eed up a community of in
terest that Is eminently worthy of pres-,
ervatlon.
What is one of the primary needs of
the case is another large and commodi
oira ship like the Roanoke and Elder, so
as to enable the new line to run on a five
day schedule between the two cities. Up
to the establishment of this line, Los An
geles had -ever sold $5 worth of goods
in a year to Eureka and Humboldt Bay.
Now the steamers put off twelve to fif
teen tons the-o every trip of goods made
In Los Angeles, exported hence in small
quantities, of course, but everything has
to have a beginning.
Capt. Dunham tells me It Is a very
hard thing to purchase a ready-built
steamer of Bw tons at the east, for the
I reason that all trades are demanding
larger vessels, and they are building but
few of less than 3500 to 4000 tons; and,
I therefore, the only vessels of the required
size for in 1 trade are so old as to be
either irnseaworthy or too slow for a
growing trade. However, one can ex
pect to see r. new ship on that line in a
year or so, : :id thai will give us a ship
every five days to the land of the
Webfeet.
