NORTHWEST TO OPEN APRIL 14
PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 22 The
1914 season of the Northwestern base
. ball league will open April 14 and
close about September 27. It may be
possible that the club magnates, who
are in session here today with Presi
dent Fielder Jones, will decide to
close the season one week earlier or
a week later.
Although nothing has been doiia to
ward making the schedule , it was
stated around the lobby of the Oregon
hotel this morning that the Portland
- Colts would open the season in Se
attle, Tacoma at Vancouver and Vic
toria at Spokane. "
There may be some changes, how
ever in the towns where the teams
open, Joe McGinnity and Frank Red
"ZVl 6 t"2 Tacoma Tigers want to
open the season in Seattle, but there
' is little liklihood of that opening be
All teams of the league have select
ed their training quarters for the 1914
season with the exception of Tacoma
' Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver will
train on their home grounds. Spo
kane will train at Boyes Springs, Cal.',
and the Portland team will likely train
in Santa Rosa again.
NATIONAL LEAGUE IS NOW ON
The election of John Kinley Tenet1,
governor of Pennsylvania, to the preB
ideucy of the . National league has
placed that organization on the most
formidable footing it has ever enjoyed.

CLUB MEN WORK
DESPITE COLD WIND
PORTLAND, Ore., Dec). 22 The
Multnomah club football players prac
ticed again yesterday morning. Near
ly all the players, with the exception
of Cherry 'Rourke and Hickson, turn
ed out for practice.
The players ran through their vari
ous play formations time after time,
the cold wind making them hustle to
keep warm. After over an hour's
practice, Manager Stott called a halt
and told all the players to report
again Tuesday night.
"EASY," SAYS GUNBOAT
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 22. "Five
rounds is all I want to finish Mr. Pel
key," said Gunboat Smith today, dis
cussing his scheduled 20 round clash
at Daly City January 1 with Arthur
Pelkey, white heavyweight champion.
The gunner is brimming over with
"This guy Pelkey," he continued,
'should be easy for me. What has he
ever done to cause anyone to figure
any other way? I have met the best
of them and put the crusher on 'em,
too. Before Pelkey met the late Lu
ther McCarty no one had ever heard
nf him. Just wait until I get him into
the ring. I'll make him curl up with
in five rounds."

ball public in geueral. Tener will not
only prove himself a capable leader of
his league, but be' will make a suitable
man to represent his organization on
the national commission. Under Te
ner's regime the affairs of the senior
organization will be conducted much
more smoothly than heretofore, and
!:ere is at last a chance for it to re
gain the prestige it lost by reason of
Its unsportsmanlike conduct in years
Incidentally the election of Tener
will bring the two. major leagues on a
more harmonious basis. Tener has the
respect of Ban Johnson and the club
owners of the American league.
It remained for roan who just
came llito basebali to see the advan
tage of having Tener lead the league.
President W. F. Baker of the Phila
delphia club is responsible for Tener
returning to baseball. Baker, who was
formerly a police commissioner of the
city of New York, became the presi
dent of the Philadelphia club at the
death of his brother-in-law. Will
Locke, last fall. Realizing that the
league was not flourishing because of
the factional strifes which were preva
lent, Baker set about to find a man
suitable to fill the position of presi
dent. He suggested Governor Tener,
a former ball player and a man of
character and prominence. Tener's
candidacy found the support of every
club owner in the league, and his
unanimous election is the result
But for Baker Tener would probably
have never been dreamed of in connec
tion with the National league presiden
cy and the club owners would have
been tied up in their annual fight when
the question of electing a president
came up this winter.
II. will be well for the National
league magnates to heed the advice of
Tom Lynch, retiring president," who
suggests that the club owners "inject
some dignity into themselves." There
has been an absolute lack of sports
manship displayed by them in the
past. There has not been a season
that numerous protests have not been
filed, resulting from decisions of the
umpires. The game's reputation for
honesty has been jeopardized by the

The stewards of the Jockey club are
working hard to rehabilitate racing
on a clean basis. With that end in
view sportsmen of highest standing
are Importing stallions and mares' to
improve the breed not only for the
turf, but for the remount service of the
United States government The dona
tions of thoroughbred stallions and
horses to Uncle Sam by patrons of the
turf have already had good results as
is. apparent in the quality of the charg
ers representing the government serv
ice in the jumping contests at the
New York horse show.
Plans are now being considered for
at least four days a week of racing
on New York courses next year. The
stewards realize that with that number
of days the tracks will be able to at
tract horses from all parts of the coun
try and hold them there. This year
racing was held only three days a
week. This was not worth while to
owners of big strings, and as a result
manyDf the notable horses were ship
ped to Canada, where they were able
to race seven days before they were
asked to move to another track.

Brignoli, the famous tenor, was very
-.careful of his voice and was terribly
afraid of drafts. It is said that during
the winter it always took him tbree
qciarters of an hour to get from his

leaving his room pace the hall for ten

descended to the lobby, where the tem

Golf as a cure for insanity is the
latest prescription of the doctors. The
New Jersey State Hospital For the In
sane at Morris Plains. N. J., has decid
ed to establish a nine bole course for
the benefit of its patients. Less than
a year ago four holes were built, and
golf became so popular that arrange
ments have been completed for a links
of nine holes.
Some of the players show all the
symptoms of being good golfers, one of
them having a score of 3G for twice
around the four holes, plus one more,
making nine in all. Dave Honeyman.
the Forest Hill professional, holds the
record for nine holes, 34.
During the winter the other five
holes will be laid out Doctors at the

old, ragged, and bent. His clothes
were the cast-offs of a man far smaller
his feet were decorated with a trim
ming of patched shoes, while his an
cient black cap, pulled way down on
his face to keep out the cold, had
probably been thrown away long ago
by some more prosperous brother.
He had drawn himself together. His
hands were in his pockets, his arms
held close to his side, and his neck
even seemed to be contracted closer
to his body. But his face was more
to wonder at than his clothes. It wa
hard and pinched. His eyes were
half closed but there was a tamt

eyelashes. ", The hair that showed
around the hat . was white and fuzz
that covered his chin and cheeks
showed a dirty gray.
As he came in the chop house the
warmth of the room slowly permeated
and he expanded. He drew his hands
from his pockets, big, scarred, expres
