PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE.
Standing of the Team.
Manager McCredie and his crew of
Giants arrived from Tacoma yesterday
morning and last night left for San Fran
cisco. The team is a bit out of condition,
out at that Manager McCredie feels that
It will only take about another week
before he will have it in shape. He Is
going to order Jay Hughes to report on
his arrival in San Francisco, and unless
President Bert steps In and prohibits
Hughes from playing, he will pitch his
flr6t game for the Giants next Sunday.
Hughes Is determined to sue the Seattle
club for keeping him out of the game.
Manager McCredie is going to try to per
suatie him from doing this.
Manager McCredie would have had Jay
Hughes in uniform long before this but
for one of the Siwash moguls, Phil F.
Kelley. who seems to be the Seattle
lighting magnate, and has been blocking
the Hughes deal for all he is worth.
McCredie says that Cohen and Agnew
have been willing to settle the Hughes
matter, but that Kelley has held out for
more money than McCredie feels that he
can afford to pay for the big twlrlen
McCredie is dickering for a third base
man. He has three in sight and ju6t as
coon as he and the managers of -any
of these three men can come to terms
he will have a new thlrdsacker. Runkle,
owing to the fact that things have been
breaking bad for him at the bat. has sort
of lost his grip and has not been playing
the game that he Is capable of putting
up. Runkle's slump in batting has af
fected -his fielding and he has got to the
point now where ne is afraid to take a
French Getting in Condition.
Win French, since he pitched one whole
game, has found that his arm is round
ing into shape. McCredie is greatly
pleased over this fact and hopes that he
will bo able to pitch him In a couple
of games while at San Francisco. Bert
Jones wrenched his back in one of the
Seattle games, and although he pitched
one game against Tacoma, his back Is
still bothering him a great deal. Ely
Cates illness was one of the things which
crippled the team on its recent trip away
from-home, more than any of the local
fans know. Cates Is still in the hospital
and it is a question whether he will be
of any use to the team again this sea
son. Manager McCredie is not taking
any chance-either on having Hughes or
of having Cates back in the game and
hashis wjres out for some more pitchers.
The other day he received a telegram
from Hickcy. who was one of Dugdale's
star box artists. Hlckey Is pitching for
Cleveland and Is dissatisfied. He wrote
to Manager McCredie. saying that he
would like to be given a chance to play
with Portland, and McCredie has wired
him for his terms.
With the rest of the team Manager Mc
Credie seems satisfied. He believes that
. when he has third base strengthened
ho will have an infield that Is as strong
as any In the league. The Giant man
ager is delighted with the game that
Jakey Atz is putting up at short, -and
declares him to be the fastest shortstop
in the league. Atz' work has demanded
very favorable notices from the baseball
critics both at Seattle and Tacoma, and
they cannot understand why it Is that
Jakcy is at the bottom of the list of
shortstops. This is easily explained. Atz
never loafs while he Is in a game. He
is after everything that comes his way.
An error to him does not keep him from
going after the next ball that is hit In
his territory. He Is not looking after his
individual average. He's out to win
games. He has been compelled to cover
a great deal more territory than any
shortstop In the league, more especially
since Runkle has been so sadly oft In
Schlafly Nearly Well.
Larry Schlafly has his bruises and cut
about cured, and both at bat and at the
keystone sack Is beginning to play up to
his last year's form. Big McLean Is
still playing the same brilliant game be
hind the bat as he did while here. He
has been hitting the ball as hard as ever,
but has been robbedof many a long drive
by some great fielding on the part of the
opposing teams. Manager McCredie says
that Mitchell. If he keeps on Improving
as he lias during the past week, will do.
He is still hobbling about first base on
one leg, but McCredie says he has been
fielding his position, in spite of this handi
cap, in grand style. He has also been
hitting the ball well, considering that he
ha"s to stand on one peg -while swinging
at the balL
The Giants are still laughing at the
home run Garvin made at Tacoma. "When
Marse Garvin kited the ball over
the "garden wall he was the most surprised
man on the grounds. After lamming the
ball "Virgil dashed intd first base wnn
the speed of a man fleeing from a col
lector. Just as he struck the bag, Xor
dyke cooly remarked. "She's over the
fence. Garve." The Information so
shocked the lanky Texan that he looked
in the direction the ball "had gone and
just saw it as it was dipping over the
fence. Then he stopped dead still. His
mouth opened so wide that a green botue
fly fell into the opening and Garvin
swallowed it just as he would a cherry.
When h started again he almost fell
down, for sheer Jey of knocking out a
home run. The wallop pleased Garvin
o much that he offered Mlque Fisher $5
for 'the ball. Fisher wasted JS.7S and
Garvin wouldn't come through with the
bargaln-ceuater price. Both Van Buren
arid Eddy Houeehoider have-bees piaythg
goed -b&llt B&d McCredie thinks that if he
can do as well down South aa he did at
Seattle and Tacoma, he will, whenjie gets
his new third baseman, still have a
chance to get into the first division.
On the same train that brought the
Giants to Poland was the Tacoma team.

CALLS SULLIVAN'S BLUFF.
Mitchell Says He Will Tut Up For
feit for a Fight.
VANCOUVER, B. C. May 15.-(Speclal.)
Charlie Mitchell, the veteran prize
fighter, arrived here this evening from
San Francisco. When in Tacoma yester
day he saw F. Hall, manager for John L.
Sullivan. Hall eaid he was prepared to
place $10,000 to bind a fight between Sulli
van and Mitchell.
"I'm willing to put up 51000," Mitchell
said, "that Sullivan will not fight,"
T. J. Consldlnc was with the party and
he Immediately offered to sign a check
for $10,000 to bind the match, thereupon
Hall backed down.
"'I'm afraid 1 have gone too far on my
own account," he said, "and will have
to see Mr. Fulllvan before I take definite
"I told liim," Mitchell said, "that I
would be in Seattle again on Thursday
after 1 got through at Vancouver, and if
Sullivan wanted to fight the whole mat
ter could bo settled then and there. The
insinuations made by Sullivan have been
so base that I could not stand them any
longer. I have always regarded his talk
of flghtng with me as a bluff, and I am
prepared to go right ahead and meet him
in a month for any sum."

IS BEST BULL TERRIER
Frank Watkln's Edgccote Peer
Proves the "Winner of the Coast
at Victoria, Portland and
The half-dozen Portland dogs which
have been making the tour of the Pa
cific Coast bench shows will arrive from
San Francisco this morning. None of
them went to Los Angeles, the last show
of the season.
Earlier In the season these dogs made
some good records on the Sound, but what
the breeders wanted was to win In San
Francisco, and they succeeded. The San
Francisco bench show Is considered In
point of excellence second only to New
These and other local dogs will probably
be placed on exhibition at the Fair In a
bench show, the details of which are yet
to be arranged. If this takes place, they
will have a wide competition, but hardly
wider than at San Francisco.
All the Portland dogs were very favor
ably commented upon In San Francisco,
and when Edgccote Peer, Frank Watkln's
bull terrier, was declared the best boll
terrier In the show, the crowd cheered.
TI1I3 dog was also first In the open and
winners" classes at Victoria. Portland
and San Francisco. He can easily claim
to be the best bull terrier on the Coast
Watklns Willamette Sunbeam, a puppy
bitch, would probably have won In her
class. If she had not died from pneumonia
contracted at Seattle. At both Van
couver and Victoria she won first In the
open and winners', and at Seattle first
In the puppies and winners'. She was
only 9 months old. She was commented
upon In Eastern dog papers as the most
beautiful puppy bull terrier in the country.
The Brierdale Kennels, raising airedales,
won all there was to be won with Lady
Alice. She was first In the winners at
Seattle, Portland and San Francisco,
making -her an American Kennel Club
F. J. Moorf's Woolton Bang, an old
time winner in the pointer class, was first
in the winners and specials . at Seattle
and Portland, but did not go to Cali
fornia. E. F. Willis cocker spaniels made a
clean sweep also. The black one. Mapal
Saxon, had honors heaped upon him in
San Francisco. He was first In the win
ners and was given a special prize for
the best black cocker in the show. At
Vancouver he was similarly honored and
at Seattle, but he was only second In
Victoria and Portland, having two pf the
best dogs in the country against him.
Portland Kid. Willis other cocker, is
now a double champion. He was first in
the winners and was given a special for
the best partl-colored cocker. He was
also given a special for the best of any
breed belonging to a member of the Can
adian Kennel Club and another special
for the best American-raised dog. He
carried everything away before him at
Vancouver and is a C. K. C. as well as
an A. K. C champion. At Portland he
took first In the winners and special for
the best cocker, but at San Francisco he
was only second, being defeated by a
New York dog sent out to the show.
Dog fanciers pass upon a judge Just as
they do upon a dog. The Portland fanciers
were naturally very well satisfied with the
decisions obtained, though they believe
they hardly got all they deserved at Se
attle. The judges were: At Vancouver.

PARIS. May 15. The Minister of Marine
has received a dispatch announcing the
torpedoboat-destroyer Arbalctc has ar
rived at Cagllari, Sardinia, towing the
nutoboat Quand Meme. having on board
her owner, the Duke Decazes and all the
crew of the racer. Quand Meme led
the racers from Port Mahon, Island of
Minorca, until about 50 miles outside of
Toulon, when the storm blew her back
over the same course she had taken. The
rescue of the Quand Meme closes the con
test without loss of life, but with only
two of the seven starters afloat.
Further advices received by the Minis
ter of Marine show that the crew of the
Quand Meme were saved, but that the
boat Itself was abandoned.
The commander of the Arbalite tele
graphs that he has all the members of
the crew on board the destroyer, but that
he was unable to bring the Quand Meme
to port, as heavy seas swept over the
autoboat last night, repeatedly snapping
the towline and making it impossible to

TELEPHONE IW CORN BELT
Quiets Baby, Spreads Fire Alarms
and Announces Trains.
m World's Work.
Nearly every day some one invents or
discovers a new use for the telephone.
One day the girl at "central" received this
message: "Hello! Say, Central, I have
put the receiver of the 'phone in the
baby's cradle, and if she wakes up and
cries, call me up at No. 71."
It must have been an unusually absent
minded woman who eent In the message:
"Oh, Central! Ring me up In 15 minutes,
so that I won't forget to take the bread
out of the oven."
If some one finds It necessary to take a
night train, the operator at the exchange
will receive some such message as this:
"Central, ring me up a half an hour be
fore the 2:17 train In the morning. See If
It's late before you call me, please."
Go Into the exchange during a "rush
period" say at 9 o'clock In the morning
and you will see the telephone girl stand
up, push her chair into a corner and
"throw" the plugs with which connections
are made as fast as her arms can fly, for
an hour at a stretch. All she will have
time to say to you will be, "Every woman
In town Is ordering things for dinner."
There are about 30 subscribers' who are
called regularly every morning by the
telephone instead of by an alarm clock.
The "central" girl Is supposed to know
the time of all railway trains, and If a
train happens to be late, how many min
utes behind time. She la often asked the
time of day, because some one has let
the clock run down. When there Is an
alarm of fire, '"central" Is supposed lo
know whero it Isl The crrhanro lo

nre alarms are often telephoned In to
the saving of valuable time. v
