ONE CENT A COPY. ON TRAINS FIVE CENTS. BATTERIES FOR TODAY S GAME: k SPOKANE-COLLINS AND BROOKS TACOMA-BUTLER, BLANKENSHiP A rather small crowd turned out Tor the opening of the Spbkane-Tacoma scries at Recreation park this afternoon, due. it is believed, to the erroneous idea prevailing that there are to he no .Monthly hall games this year. Fans were delighted to see Hasty Wright, last year a member of the Indian pitching staff, in the field as um pire. The Tacoma Tigers, who were tied with Vancouver for first place in the league yesterday, were late in arriving in Spokane today, being held up on the way from Seattle by wrecks, which delayed trains. They appeared a snappy bunch when they trotted out on the field, and it looks as though the Indians were going up against something worthy of their steel for the second series of the season. The teams lined Up as follows: Spokane- Davis, If; Cartwright, 2b; Kippert, cf; Weed, rf; Nordyke, lb; Flood, 3b; Brooks, c ; Qranville, ss; Col lins and Keener, p.

Although no damage was done, the shock was severe enough to rattle crockery and windows. The tremors lasted several seconds. lie: Why not give me your re ply now?

Despite Berger's statement, there Is a general suspicion that he will welcome a postponement. The Jef fries crowd, it is said, is a bit miffed over the effort of Johnson to squarely pass Jack Welch up to them. Not that Welch would not be agreeable, but Berger would rather talk the matter over and not permit Johnson to arbitrarily force the acceptance of welch withoHt going Into the merits of the Other i :ai lidatCS for the job.

I respect those who oppose it from their own personal feelings, but it is only fair to say that many who oppose the big fight now do so only because it is a big fight. "None of them saw fit to attack all the boxing contests similar to this one, except in the issues at stake. There have been scores of ring contests throughout Califor nia, but because the Jeffries-John son fight is attracting world wide attention It is not fair to oppose it for that reason, or for a desire to gain selected notoriety. CARRIE NATION WAITING FOR INSPIRATION "MEN WHO SMOKE SHOULD NOT MARRY"—"SECRE ORDERS A CURSE. Carry Nation may smash up some Spokane saloons, but she refuses to state definitely that she will. "I never can tell when I will dean out a bar room, for I never know till the moment the inspira tion to do so conies to me from God—lf it comes while 1 am here, look out. That's all I can say," said the militant reformer to a Press reporter this morning, when seen in her apartment at her hotel. Spry and active for a woman of 64 years, with a record of having smashed hundreds of saloons In America. England and France dur ing the past decade. Mrs. Nation does not have to be urged to hand out a line of talk on any one of a dozen lines of "reform." "Secret orders ate a curse." she says. "They ought to be put out of business, and there should be a law prohibiting men who smoke, chew or drink from marrying." She will lecture tonight in the tent at the corner of Astor and Baldwin on the subject, "How I Smashed. Why I Smashed and Why You Should Smash.'' and tomorrow she speaks at the First Methodist church Further plans for her stay here have not been given out. Meanwhile no alarm is felt among the saloon keepers of the city. None of those interviewed this morning remotely expected a visit from Carry and her hatchet, but several saloon keepers express ed the wish that she would call, claiming that the additional trade that would I*' attracted as a result of her visit would more than repay for any damage she might do be fore the police arrived. "Women like to be loved," con tinued Mrs. Nation to the reporter after she had decorated him with a souvenir hatchet pin bearing her name and a paste diamond, said to represent the stones she has thrown through saloon mirrors, that being one of her methods "Yes, they like to be loved too well and they are too prone to overlook the vices of men.

A fist—open, to he sure, hut a hard one just the same—landed on the* side of the face of the one who wouldn't "quit yelling." No, Mr. and Mrs. Press Reader, this isn't the story of an assault by highwaymen. It is merely a true to-life incident of two policemen arresting a "drunk." Mayhe you yourself have seen something of the sort and know that the incident isn't overdrawn. If yon haven't, you will have to take the word of a police reporter of many years' experience in many cities, who assures you that it is a very, very mild sort of incident, after all. BEATINGS THE RULE. Now. no policeman will tell you that the police beat prisoners un less in self defense. That "self de fense" covers a multitude of sins. I have seen many men beaten and mauy women abused by the police —hundreds of them —and If It was all in self defense—well, theu I have only pity for the officers who feared attack. No discussion of police policies gets far without someone mention ing Chief Kohler and the Cleveland police department, with its "golden rule." 1 was a police reporter In Cleveland for years prior to and during Chief Kohler's administra tion.
