Spokane took another game from Salt Lake yesterday through placing the hits when needed. Dammann was outpltched by Essick, but the poor suppwt given the latter helped Rellly's braves to get around the bases. MtUler, behind the bat for Salt Lake, was unaided to get the ball out in time and base stealing was a rule. The game was won In the fourth Inning, when hard hitting bright In four runs for the Indians. The score: R. H. E. Spokane 6 7 3 Salt Lake 5 13 2 BOISE BEATS MISTERS.

This picture was taken a couple of years ago. She was In Beattle. then, on a visit. Ono evening. In evening dress, she wrap ped tho habiliments of a Sister of Mercy aroUnd her bead und shoulders, nnd was photographed. From Seattle comes this story: "Babe" Womack was the toast of the gilded youth of Seattle eight years ago, and her dainty slippers were sold to do service us wine glasses at frequent suppers. "Pretty Babe," with those innocent big brown eyes which still haunt the memory of numerous Seattle men who were younger once, claims lv New Tork that she was a willow when she met Duna and that he 'was only a friend, anyhow.' To more In timate friends she had staled that she was divorced from her Seattle 11 us hand more than two years ago nnd was merely a 'grass widow.' "As a matter of fact Mr. nnd Mrs. Dlgnnn were divorced In this city less than a month ago, but ho quiet ly that the fuct remained unknown to all but the parties und their at torneys until the sensational happen* ing In New York. "The suit was on purely statutory grounds and was brought by Mrs. Beatrice W. Dignan against her bUH band. At the time she was v guest at the Hotel Washington, where she spent the time quietly between the filing of her divorce complaint, im June It, and the grunting of her de cree, on July 11. "Then sho disappeared from the city ngulu and was not beard from till the news came of Dana's suicide.

"At lirst Dignan Intended to ap pear in the suit and retained Attor neys Stafford ,<4 Dawes to represent him. but changed bis mini! and al lowed the suit to go by default.

Mrs. Dlg nan did not ask for alimony and none was allowed her. "When she came to the courthouse to testify In her divorce suit she was handsomely dressed In black, with a large picture bat. She told a clear, straight story of nonsupport on the witness stand and from the evidence brought before him there was noth ing for Judge Hatch to do but grant the divorce.

When a aciuab Is hatched, all the neighboring plgeona gather around, and, despite their experience, the verdict is that the squab will make a Jumbo when fully matured. But he never meets expectations. He turns out to be just a common pigeon. It is so, sometimes, with men. Judge Parker was presented to the American people as a second John Marshall, we mean the old. original John; he of the all-comprehensive mind; the soldier, the sage, the matchless Jurist, who took the rough frame of the constitution nnd so braced and embellished it that It became a world's won der; who had no sectional prejudices, but stood by Hamilton as against Jefferson, because Hamilton was right and Jefferson was playing to the gal lerl, • 'use Hamilton was always brave and candid and true, and because Jeffei.- •-, while anxluus to win hollly, was always bound, If possible, to win and to be in a position when anything sinister appeared, to say, "Thou canst not say I did it." But the truth ia growing more clear, day by day. Under the ermine of the bench Judge Parker always wears the sweater of the politician. Twenty yeara ago Senator Hill, who knows all that Is crooked In politics, had faith enough in the then young lawyer Parker to entrust the manage ment of his campaign for governor in Parker's hands. He never would have done that with John Marshall. He wanted a man who could beguile the honest voters of the state of New York and at the same time go down Into the Tammany lair and show the tigers that he had been a lion-tamer all his life, even, If necessary, to the point of chloroforming them. A little re cent history will be sufficient to show how different Judge Parker Is from what Chief Justice Marshall was. On April 15 of this year, three days prior to the meeting of the demo cratic convention of the state of New York, Judge Parker slipped down from Esopus to New York city. The object of that meeting was frankly stated by the New York Times, a warm advocate of Judge Parker. Here are a few extracts from the Times: "Judge Alton B. Parker spent several hours In this city yesterday in con sultation with William V, Sheehun and others, discussing principally the draft of the platform which has been prepared by ex-Senator David B. Hill for adoption at next Monday's democratic state convention. "Judge Parker, Mr. gluehatl and August Belmont lunched together, and late In the afternoon Judg» Parker, accompanied by Mr. Sbcehan, left for his home nt Bgbpva, where he will remain until after the state convention. Mr. Sheehan will remain at Judge Parker's h->me until some time today, when he will go to Albany to take the approved draft of the platform back to Senator Hill. "As It stands the platform la understood to have the full approval of Judge Parker, all of the propositions advanced by Senator Hill as being likely to attract the radical vote having b?en eliminated at the wish of the prospective candidate for the presidency. "The platform which has been approved, and which will be presented to the convention on Monday, is understood to be drawn ou ultra-conservative lines, nnd to avoid all references to the rocks on which the party split in the last two national campaigns." That convention instructed the democratic delegation to St. Louis to vote as a unit for Judge Parker, and ex-Senator Hill went with Belmont to St. Louis to carry out the program. When Hill told Mr. Bryan In St. Louis that he had never conversed with Judge Parker and did not know his senti ments On certain questions, he had at that moment a platform, prepared under the eye of Judge Parker, to present to the convention. Bryan had an antl-trust plank Inserted in the platform, but in the one prepared by Judge porker and which the New York convention adopted, the plunk on trusts reads as follows: "Corporations chartered by the state must be subject to just regulations by the state, In the interest of the people." That is, if Jim Hill gets a charter in Uie state of New Jersey for the purpose of placing restriction over the trade of Minnesota and all the states west of Minnesota, there can be no power to check him. The object was to make the Sherman anti-trust law a dead letter. That It was not Incorpor ated in the St. Louis platform was due, not to Hill and Belmont and Judge Parker, but to William J. Bryan. What do our anti-trust democratic friends think of it? When later (April 30> the question of whom should be chairman of the New York democratic state committee came up, through Judge Parker's Inllucnce, caused the place to be given to Cord Meyer, and through the same influence the chairmanship of the executive committee was given to Pat McCarren, strangely, too, both Meyer and McCarren were the moving agents that organized the sugar trust In 18;>7. that put In their assets amounting to a few thousand dollars and capitalized them at millions, unloaded their watered securities on the public and have since, by smashing smaller enter prises, caused all that water to pay 12 per cent dividends. The trusts do not like President Roosevelt because he has all the time insisted that they must do business on the square. It was the trusts and the grout national banks that caused the nomination of Judge Parker, and tlyy did It because they know their man. What will democratic orators on the stump In Washington this year have to say In opposition to trusts? Certain It is that every word spoken against them will be an Indirect but pertinent arraignment of their candi date. » CANDIDATE PARKER 1$ NOT JUDGE PARKER EBOPUS, Aug 10.—It was BOt Hie J u dg« Parker the country has ween pictured in newspapers or on cam j pitigu banner* and buttons who stood 'on the Sag-draped speakers' stand , ever looking the Hudson ami accepted i the nomination for the presidency. It ■| was not the Judge Parker of the New York court of appeals, it was not, b» any means, the man whom public opin- I ion in many quarters lias painted as B*- I vercly judicial in bearing and ultra - i till—Slttslitl manner. The opening words of the nominee's I speech teemed to change the man as it by mafic. "I hare resigned my of fice- al chief judge of the court of ap peals to accept this nomination," were liis words, ami those who heard and knew the man say it seemed as it they had seen him cast otT his black robe al that moment and don the armor of I the campaigner, The ball thousand men, women and children who sat under the dripping skies saw in Judge Alton B. Parker's man six feet in height, erect as an ar row, sunburned, smiling, forceful and niih) of voice. As he spoke rain drop* trickled Iron the tanned bald spot into his sandy, gray-fringed hair. Hw durk eyes snapped as if punctuating his ! sentences. He has a habit of Dinging |at his sandy mustache. In repose he i I stands with his hands clasped before | I him and he i« constantly throwing j ! hack his shoulders and extending his i breast. Champ Clark had delivered his poetic •ration and the crowd was cheerio** I when Judge Parker advanced to the Platform rail. The dignity and solemn j ity of the occasion was over every one like a blanket, The noise (eased and every car was awake to hear the lir*t public utterance of the candidate since his nomination. "t'lentlenicn of the committee, fellow ci untrymtn, fellow citilens," was what the crowd had ex pected. What they heard was, "1 have been noticing that thOTS arc a good many people standing in the rain on mv left. I think that if you will move over under the trees you will he more pro tected unit will not get quite so wet.'' The crowd stood still and roared. Judge DR.

BASB Parker, hospitable lirst ami then el oquent, seemed a little surprised at this cheering and he evidently could not understand why the throng before bin should laugh at his effort to make his guests comfortable before he for mally accepted the leadership of the Democratic party. Judge Parker has a melodious voice. It is Soft and clear and his enunciation is perfect. Bvery lylable is pronoun ced distinctly, llis gestures are mod est. He points the index linger of his right hand and often raises that hand to his face hut never above his head. He does not move about the platform, and he does not bend his hack. Yachts on the Hudson were sending up aerial torpedoes, whistles were screaming, children romping on the porch were talking and laughing loudly, and roost ers were crowing. but everyone in the crowd heard every word .Judge Park ST spoke. The candidate in discussing the issues was serious enough, but he turned quickly and gracefully from this to dig nilied and subtle humor and laughed mildly with the crowd at his telling hits. There was a picture connected with that ceremony which few saw. Mrs. Parker, a number of her friends about I her, sat in a rustic summer house look ing directly into the face of her hus band. Ily all odds she wore the most serious expression of anyone in Rosc moitnt. Her daughter was laughing in her conversation with friends, but Mrs. j Parker sat almost rigid, facing straight ahead and listening m wrapt attention. [ At tune-, her lips moved as if she were follow ing her husband's words. She was simply dressed and quite in contrast to the display of gorgeous colors worn by the women about her.
