NEW YORK. Dec. 13. —A triple foot
ball allianctoamong Yale, Harvard and
Princeton is the latest thing in the
i making of the schedule of games for
the next season.
A deal of this kind has been rumored
for some time and at the recent Har
vard-Yale game representatives of all
three colleges got together and talked
the matter over. Yale already plays
Harvard and Princeton, so it only re
mains for Princeton and Harvard to
schedule a game and the arrangement
According to one w ho is on the inside
the deal has been practically made.
Formal papers will be signed soon,
when the dates of the games will be
fixed. Princeton and Harvard have not
played each other since 1896.
It was suggested at the conference
that the deal be made four-cornered,
which would take in Pennsylvania.
This was agreeable on the whole, but
the prejudice Of some of the influential
Princeton graduates will have to he
overcome before the scheme can be put

Since the enactment of the legisla

lows the law governing general
elections and mentions nothing
about electors writing names on ballots,
the general election law in this partic

other than decisions of the supreme

"We have the soil and the climate,"
isaid Mr. Ritz, "now all we need is
(the energy. When I came to the valley
jin 1889. I saw some of the finest ap
jpl. s that ever grew. In fact tiner ap-
I pies than were produced in the Yakima
ior Hood River country, and I will go
on record as Raying that we are capa
ble of producing just such fruit in the
[future. We all know that fortunes
have been made by fruit raising—care-
Iful fruit raising, and Walla Walla val
ley can be made to produce the finest
!fruit on earth."
| "I firmly believe that to increase the

lutely necessary to chop up the big
[farms into smaller tracts. These mat
ters will be thoroughly threshed out at
jthe coming convention, however, so it
lis not necessary for me to explain

FAVORS CHANGE IN
SYSTEM OF SCORING.
NEW YORK, Dec. 13.—Harry Pull
liam, president of the National league,
thinks it is an injustice to a batter who
brings in a run from third bas,- on a
long fly to the outfield to charge him
with a time at bat. This play often
wins games fully as much as a base hit
and Pulliam says he will advocate a
change in the rules whereby a batter
sending out such a fly or a grounder
so difficult to handle that the play
cannot be made at the plate shall be
exempt from a time at bat.
"There are some players." he says,
"who always are sure to hit the bah
when men are on bases and frequently
win games by so doing; yet they get no
credit for what they have aciom
Pulliam thinks there should be a
change in the scoring system which
would give credit to the batter bringing
in runs. Reform in the pitching rules is
another change advocated by Pulliam.
He is opposed to allowing the pitehet's
box to be raised above the level of the
diamond..."The pitcher's box at the Po
lo grounds is on the .evel with the rest
of the diamond," he observes, "and I
maintain that you get a correct line on
the ability of a pitcher on this ground."

Multnomah Club Wants Good Football
Game for New Year's D«\y.
Multnomah Club is casting about for
a New Year's day football game in
Portland, and is at a loss to decide
what team to' play. It has a chance to
play several elevens, and wants to play
several others on that day, but so far
has reached no understanding with
any. The latest report received by
President George McMillan today was
that the St. Louis university team has
definitely decided to play the Washing
ton State college in Spokane, Christmas
and the Seattle club in Seattle, tfew
Year's. That can scarcely be, because
Seattle and Spokane are scheduled tb
play in Seattle New Year's day.
Multnomah would like to play the St.
Louis team, but failing in that, is anx
ious to meet the crack W. S. C. team.
Correspondence is being taken up with
Manager Lilligren for a game here New
Year's day, and it Wii] be a rare treat
for the Portland fans if it is secured.
