McCrcdie's men went out to Multnomah
Field yesterday and taught the Com
muters how to play ball. Under the
shadow of the old exposition building the
Giants fell upon the Oaklandites and
chewed them to the tune of 4 to 3.
It may have been the new grounds, it
might have been the fact that the Giants
were in Portland again, and it possibly
was the fact that everything that wears
a Portland attachment is taking a brace
and getting ready to show people things
when the Exposition opens.
There was a twlrler named Esslck who
yesterday dished out a mass of enigmas
in the shape of bewildering balls. That
boy Eseick forgot yesterday that he was
attached to a bad-luck contingency and
played ball from the starting flag to the
home stretch. Eight other gentlemen
dressed in abbreviated trousers and shirt
sleeves were at that boy Essick's back
to jee that he didn't take any back talk
from the other side. There was no back
ilk; the Commuters didn't have time
to give any.
Early In the game, when every one
remembered that they were used to play
ing In bad luck, this selfsame Essick got
himself in a hole. The Commuters had a
gentleman on the slab who goes by the
name of Mo6klman and doesn't care who
knows it. He saw Esslck get himself into
a hole, and he followed suit. Essick
thereupon climbed out of the hole and
got on an elevation and crowed. The
gentleman inside the Oakland uniform
attempted to follow suit once more, but
every time he got to the edge Essick
shoved him back and forgot to beg his
That was all there was to the fight;
Esslck beat Moskiman out of the hole.
Multnomah Field, the substitute scene of
-conflict, was suited to the slaughter. The
infield Is fast, and the old Exposition
building looms up on the skyline Just to
remind McCredle's men that they are ex
pected to do their duty. Some hundreds
of the old guard assembled yesterday to
see the gladiatorial contest. As the game
progressed, their faces, long-drawn-out,
broke into smiles; hats went into the air,
and a committee was appointed to visit
Big Chief McCredie and demand what he
meant by shocking the assemblage by
In the first round things looked black
for the braves of Big Chief McCredie.
The Commuters thought things were to
be as before, and dashed a couple of men
across the plate without asking permis
sion. In the second round another man
was pushed across the last sack before
any one got next to what was going on.
Then the Giants got mad and began to
froth at the mouth. They charged unex
pectedly and pushed a man across the
sack themselves. Schlafly got soaked by
a brutal twlrler and walked to first. The
big chief struck out, and while he was
doing -it Schlafly got to second and won
dered how it happened. Then the Com
muters got excited, juggled the ball In
the vicinity of first for a time, and finally
hurled it toward the man behind, but
Schlafly beat it and went to the bench
for refreshments. The old guard took off
Its specs and gave a war whoop.
In the third the Giants got a half-nelson
on the Commuters and refused to let
go until the Oaklandites called it off.
Then Atz walked to first, got bunted to
second, pushed on to third by Eddie
Householder, and scored on a long drive
by Brave Schlafly. The old guard had a
spasm and began to climb from the
bleachers to get nearer the firing line.
Until the sixth the Giants amused them
selves by chasing shadows across- the
field. Then they settled down again.
They looked at the perspiring Moskiman
on the pitcher's slab and they straight
way chuckled to themselves. Then they
did things to him. Big Chief McCredie
landed one in the lft garden. McLean
gave his life for his chief, and the chief
went down to second without a grunt. A
Commuter stopped long enough to spec
ulate on whether a baseball is an exact
sphere, and while he speculated McCredie
hopped to third and sat down on the
sack worse than a man with a chattel
mortgage. Runkle smashed the sphere
and McCredie hoofed it. The ball came
back to the last sack with a zip. but the
dp came after the big chief had crossed
The square. '
Things were even then, but the Giants
were not satisfied. They had tasted
b-l-o-o-d! They wanted a full-sized drink
of it, and they took it in the course of
events. In the seventh Van Buren walked
to first because the man on the pitcher's
slab couldn't see the plate. A Commuter
tried to hit the clouds with the ball and
allowed Van Buren to get halfway around
the track. Householder bunted a bunt
and Van Buren bunted himself to third.
Then Schlafly came to the bat. He spat
upon his hands, bespattered them with
mud. looked Moskiman In the eye and
bade him beware. Moskiman said he
wasn't afraid, and hurled a hot one
straight at the sack. It sailed the other
way as Schlafiy's bat made the arc. and
landed far enough away from civilization
to score Van Buren and net Schlafly three
sacks. For two more Innings the Com
muters strained themselves to get loose.
but failed to accomplish much, and the
old guard walked from the grounds in a

the big Injun wouldn't talk to roe. His
managers, two dapper young- men from
San Francisco, whom I met at the

lodging-house, where the freak was
being herded, that he could talk four
languages, Mexican, two Indian dialects
and homespun English. Fancy my dis

"Stand up. Jumbo, and shake hands

one of the managers opened the mat

in all his obese majesty, extracted a

a hand, from a capacious pocket, and
wagged my arm to and fro.

I S3 Id something to him. It was not
"Webslerian, but it seemed appropriate
but he muttered not a grunt.
I sat down on a dissipated-looking
chair and gave it up.
"I can't talk to him. He's too proud
and haughty for me," was my com
plaint to the managers. "You told me
he talked four languages. Now let's see
The manager was vexed.

I thought of the serried and sometimes

got "sore" at the sight of an inter

For the purpose of making conversa

but no one present knew what that
was and I was compelled to ask the
dimensions of his right arm. They told
me it was eight feet long, or something
like that and I believed.
I was also Informed that he Is a full
blooded Cocohpaw Indian, of a tribe that
is supposed to inhabit the' wilds of Mex

has been a policeman on the Tuma reser

at 700 pounds, but even at that early day
no one thought of matching her against
