Petaluma can secure the training camp of the Portland baseball team for the coming season and it is up to the people to secure it as Manager Nick Williams has expressed a desire to come here and his close friend and chum Harry C. Taylor, the prominent former Petaluman who is now living in Portland, is urging him to do so. A telegram received by the Argus from Mr. Taylor conveyed the pleasant information and stated if the grounds can be secured and the board for the men during their stay here, the camp can be secured for Petaluma and that it would be one of the biggest things that ever happened to this city as all well know.

On Saturday evening, Mrs. H Harrington delightfully entertained the American Band Boys at an elaborate Halloween party.
