If there Is a fiercer umpire than Bubo
Levy, won't the Pacific Coast League
officials please trot him put, and send
him to Portland? This same bunch of
Pacific Coast League officials boast of
starting with three umpires beg pardon,
one umpire and two false alarms, Leiy
and Jim McDonald and they also boast
that they will finish the season with
them. Maybe they will, but a few more
exhibitions such as Levy gave yesterday
afternoon may call for the coroner's
official attention, and a revision of the
boast of the Coast League magnates.
Really, there was nothing to the game
but Levy. It was a eort of Pan-Levy
affair, with the official of ball and strikes
guarding the interests of Pete Lohman's
crew, like a -miser would his ill-gotten
pelf. If Levy's name had been on Peter's
payroll he could not have spent a more
Industrious afternoon in his services.
Thielman pitched a four-hit game and
struck out five Oaklanders. It is true
that one was a triple and one a two
bagger, but they were scattered through
the whole nine innlrgs, and never came
two In a cluster. It's true, also, that
there were four errors behind the play
ing of the Browns, Just two more than
was chalked up against Oakland, yet
the Browns clouted Cooper for eight
bingles, a couple of which were good for
extra bases, and still they could not win
not with Levy's strenuous endeavor
to help poor old Oakland out of the
The game In spots was the real article
for which the crowd is wont to pay their
cash to see, but for the main part it
was decidedly off color. This bunch of
Coast League pitchers seems to have
taken Van Buren's measure. This big
fellow was a terror to twlrlers, but they
are next to him. Some one of them
discovered the sort of ball that he could
not hit safely, and he passed it along
until it' has gone the route of every
pitcher, and now, if he gets a safe blngle,
it's almost a mistake. Yesterday he
negotiated two, and It was the nearest
approach of his old form that he has
Eh own in many weeks. This same Van
Buren used to gladden the hearts of us
all also by his perfect Holding, but. In
these Autumn days, unless the ball is
ballooning, we groan when It rolls out in
his territory. His all-round playing has
taken an awful slump. It may be that
ae needs a rest, for his has been almost
a. continuous performance since the sea
Bon began. If this Is not the cause, it
must be that the responsibility of being
captain is too great for him. The latter
Is hardly probable. About the thing he
needs is a rest, and It would not be a
bad idea to play Thielman in Ijis garden
until the Deacon gets over being stale.
Thielman opened the game with a pass
to O'Hara . and when "Doc" Moskiman
drove out his triple he scored. The genial
doctor also scored a second later, when
Hoilingsworth threw the ball too high
for Francis to handle. With this handi
cap of two and Rube Levy lying in am
bush for Fred Ely's men, the Browns
certainly got off bad. They did not get
into the running until the fourth in
ning, for a couple of double plays strung
through the second and third chapters
Bent them to the morgue runless. Van
Buren surprised all by hitting safely
to left, and Phil Nadeau made his re
turn to the game felt with a two-bagger
to right. Van scored on the play, but it
was a tight squeeze. Gorton dropped
the ball and the run was saved. A
spasm .of disappointment passed over
Levy's -face, when he saw that Gorton
had dropped the ball. Francis singled,
and drove in Nadeau. An unfortu
nate bit of playing gave Oakland a run
In this inning also, and it left them still
one to the good. Thielman walked
Schwartz. He stole second and went
to third on a passed ball and scored oa a
wild pitch. Levy didn't have a hand in
this, but he apologized to Grandma Loh
man, and of course was forgiven.
In the seventh, Danny Shea's single
became a run on a wild pitch. This was
the last of the Browns; because Levy
insisted on Cooper striking Francis out.
In the closing scene Van Buren's error
nnd a glaring theft of third, gave tfCruger
a chance to score. Van must have thought
when he fell on Kruger's hit that it
was useless to try and beat the Oakland
-Levy combination; so, while he was on
the ground, he threw the ball anywhere
Into the diamond, and Kruger went to
second. While Jake Thielman was un
winding he purloined third.
Among the interested grandstand spec
tators who watched the Levy presenta
tion" was Arthur Anderson, the Browns'
new catcher. Anderson did not arrive
in time to get Into the game, but he
will play this afternoon and poor Danny
Shea will get a well-deserved rest. The

and it is said to be considered doubtful
whether he will ever face the barrier

for the Brighton Cup contest, and was
being worked slowly over the Sheepshead

of his trial he faltered in his stride. His

Stanford's Game With Reliance Sets
Them to Thinking-.
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA,
Berkeley. Cal., Oct . 7.-(SpeclaL)
Stanford's ability' to score on the Reli
ance eleven, a team that the California
players could not down, has set the local
pigskin warriors hard to work again, and
vc tVio. pnoches with renewed vigor.
The general air of confidence that had
pervaded tho local practices has given
away to hard work, and there will be less
reference to the cinch that California is
supposed to have on the "big game."
Stanford worked an ancient and much
used trick play on the Reliance eleven,
and so succeeded In drawing in the club
players that when the quarter broke
loose with the ball there was no one be
Vim aaA the coal line, and it was
simply a question of running to make tho
score. If Stanford can score through the
use of old-time plays on a team that
PflUfnrnln. could make no impression
against it's time that something was do
ing with the coacnes, say me Dieacuer
Thi PnUfnrnln. freshmen found it DOESl-
ble to score against the Palo Alto High
School team Friday last a feat that the
Stanford Infants could not perform, and
the young players feel more confident of
a victory on the 17th.
The date for the Multnomah-Callfornla
team has been set for October 3L on the
Berkeley grid, and the Stanford-Mult-
nomah game a week later at Palo Alto.
The two games are looked for with much
expectancy, as it will be the first time
fnr spvprsl vjitk that th nnllfnrnln fn.
thuslasts have had a look at Northern

PACIFIC UNIVERSITY, Forest Grove.
Or., Oct 7. (Special.) After chapel this
morning the football squad held an enthu
siastic rally in the auditorium. The 30
men present were very enthusiastic
Coach McFadden, Captain Barnet and
Manager Thomas made speeches in which
they urged the importance of systematic
training and the value of experience.
A game had been partially arranged with
Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club for
next Saturday, but the faculty ruled that
the 'varsity should meet no club team
this year. In place of tho meet with
the club a game has been arranged for
Saturday with the Portland Academy
team, to be played at Forest Grove The
academy Is reported as having the best
school team in the city.
CornellNlagrara Game Cancelled.
ITHACA, N.Y., Oct 7. The Cornell
Niagara football game, scheduled lor to
day, has been canceled
BALL-PLAYER WHO EXCELS IN ANY POSITION
"DOC MOSKIMAN, OF OAKLAND.
"Doc" Moskiman is one of the best all-round baseball players In the
Pacific Coast League. Pete Lohman originally signed him to pitch, but in
juries and sickness so crippled the Oaklanders that Moskiman has been called
upon to play in every department of the game but catch, and a singular
fact Is that he has played every department well. His. batting has been an
other feature of his game. He once led the league and today Is well up
among the top-notchers. '
Being a pitcher himself, ho will not stand for "terrorising batters," a
dodge which Joe Corbett has started and which other twlrlers are trying to
adopt. In tho Oakland-Los .Angeles series Moskiman followed O'Hara, who
had been hard hit by ono of Corbctt's "throat-cutters." When he advanced
to the box, he stopped long enough to say to Corbett:
"If you hit me, I'm coming after you with this bat, and Til get you.
and get you good." It was noticeable that Corbett did not shove any of his
curves anywhere near Mosklman's anatomy.
When the season closes, Moskiman will coach tho Berkley baseball team.

COLUMBIA TEAM IS READY.
Will Play First Game With Hill's'
The football players of the Columbia
University are doing good work under
the coaching of Albert and L. Cronan,
brothers, who are Jointly coaching tho
team. There are practically two teams,
and tney were out on the field last even
ing practicing. There seems to be ev
ccllent material for a strong team, com
posed almost entirely of new men, only
a few of the players of last year remain
ing. However, the players this year en
Joy the experience of Albert Cronan, who
was a member of the trl-state champion
team of North Dakota. He was then
taught the Princeton rules, which, he
says, are a great advantage under the
present method. Mr. Cronan said he was
hopeful of turning out a first-class team,
but that it was too early to predict what
tho boys will do. The are learning tho
signals and players rapidly, and, after
training, will make a good showing.
The first game will take placo next Sat
urday with Hill's Academy, which was
defeated by the Pacific University recent
ly. There Is always a large crowd of en
thusiastic sympathizers out to witness tho
practice gamfes at the University field,
and tho team may depend on having
good support at the opening game.
Tho line-up will be about as follows:
Wiley, center; Hayes, right field; Shell
or Denny, left field; Martin, left tackle;
More, left end; Monks, right back; Gll
san. right end; Cullen, quarterback;
Fred Smith, left halfback; L. Cronan,
left half; A. Cronan, fullback, E. J.
Fredell is captain of the team, but will
not be In the game Saturday.
The following Is the schedule of games
as far as laid out at present: With Hill's
Academy Saturday, October 10; Portland
Academy Saturday, October 17; Pacific
University Saturday, October 24. Other
games will be provided for in due time.
Columbla's Last Practlco Game.
The football team of Columbia Univer
sity played Its last practice game yester
day before tackling the eleven of the Hill
Military Academy next Saturday. It. de
feated the second team of the university
by a score of 10 to 0 on the school grounds.
On tho 'varsity team Gleason Is develop
ing into a star end player. Martin, Moore,
Hayes, Ryan and Smith constitute a
strong line. .Wiley will probably play
center in the Saturday game. Monks
kicked five out of eight goals attempted.
The absence of A. Cronan weakened the
team, as he is one of the star players.
British Golf Champion Still in Race.
PHILADEPHIA, Oct 7. The first
match play round of the invitation
match play tournament given by Mrs.
Clement Griscom In honor of her guest
Miss Rhona K. Adair, the British cham
pion, was concluded at the Merlon
Cricket Club links today at Haverford.
The two -best-known players, MIsa Adair
and Mrs. C. T. Stout formerly Miss
Genevieve Hecker, still remain, and will
probably fight out the final on Saturday.
During the day arrangements were
-made for an International woman's team
match to be played on Saturday. Nine
Americans will play against nine Cana
dian and English women. Miss Adair
will captain the English side and Mrs.
Stout will head the home team.
The match between Miss Adair and Mrs.
Pauline Mackay was an interesting one
throughout The former won at the fif
teenth by four up.

Never since a crab walked sideways has
tho sport of capturing those pugnacious
and plucky little crustaceans been so
popular as at tho present time. Crab
bing has become a fashionable fad. Thou
sands of maids and matrons, of course,
with their attendant cavaliers, both
young and old, along the Sound, the
Shrewsbury River and the waters of
Staten Island have recently forsaken ten
nis and even golf to indulge in -the wild
hilarity of luring tho wily crab from its
lair and triumphantly landing tho scrappy
There is just enough excitement in crab
bing to provide a new sensation for Sum
mer resort society. There Is ample op
portunity for little feminine shrieks -of
apprehension and alarm, affording excuse
for tho spasmodic clutching of manly
arms, the lifting of muslin skirts and th
many girlish fascinating affectations of
fear, when the monster Is landed, full of
fight, perhaps exhibiting more combative
courage to tho square inch than any cre
ature in existence. There Is scope for the
escort of the fair crab-catcher to exhibit
his skill in handling the enemy, laugh
ingly to endure real pain, if his method
be sufficiently clumsy or his knowledge
of the safe end of a crab Insufficient to
save his fingers from a nip by its
sharp and powerful claws. There is all
sorts of fun In crabbing, of Just that bois
terous unconventional kind which charms
and delights the heart of the Summer girl
and makes her more than usually fascin
ating to that class of mankind it is her
mission to bewitch and bewilder.
It is believed that the present craze for
craa-flshlng originated in Oyster Bay,
where the children of the President have
devoted much time to the sport this Sum
mer. Be this as it may, from Sag Har
bor around to Shelter Bay, and the entire
length of the Sound, from Pleasure Bay
to Atlantic Highlands on tho Shrewsbury
River, and along the Staten Island shores
of the Kill von Kull. crabbing Is all the
rage. When the tide is running out the
most advantageous time for a good catch,
the links are deserted. Even the bathing
grounds and the boardwalks suffer, and
tho tennis nets are Idle; but from boat
and jetty merry laughter peals.
Delicate little hands, heedless of the
coat of tan accumulating, pulsating with
excitement cautiously draw lines to the
surface to which are attached ugly lumps
of raw beef. But perchance to these cling
crabs tenacious little fellows, who refuse
to part with the dainty meal until within
an Inch or two of the surface. Then it is
that the skillful manipulator of the
"scalping net" with sudden dash and ex
citing splash, does lightning work and
lands the prey.
Inasmuch as the real sport in crabbing
does rkt consist entirely of luring them to
the sivface and landing them by the
rapid and skillful use of the hand-net
but comes with the run of handling and
securing them when landed, It Is perhaps
excusable that many flshers adopt pot
hunting devices, such as "drop nets" and
artfully contrived wire cages, which glve"I
the crab who once decides to make a
meal off the tempting bait absolutely no
chance to escape. For with such appa
ratus, which frequently draws up two or
three at a time, each with a mind to seek
escape. In opposite directions, the fun of
ten becomes fast and furious.
But, after all, the youth who wants to
-enjoy a genuine sensation and revel In
real excitement in a crowd of pretty girls,
cannot do better, when a good catch has
been made, than accidentally upset the
jLPpt full of craba within tho narrow limits
of a boat This trick, however, nearly
led to disastrous results one day last
week on.' the Shrewsbury River near
Pleasure Bay. It is perhaps better to
wait and indulge in such playful pranks
upon the cottage piazza.
An interesting outcome of the present
fad for crabbing Is tho establishment, by
many Staten Island devotees, of crab
aquaria, where the smallest of the crus
taceans are kept-and fed until such time
as they shed their outer coats and becomo
softshell crabs, with their magnitude and
proportions almost doubled.
HE TALKED TOO MUCH.
Now Aslett Mast Go to Astoria to

His drunken babblings .while locked up
as an ordinary inebriate will be the cause
of Peter A3lett's taking a trip to Astoria

for he little answered the description of
