MAY PLAY IX SPOKANE.
Portland and Taconia May Go to
the Fnlls City.
The dispatch from Oakland in which
Pete Lohman expresses his Intention of
buying Into the. Portland baseball club,
and a rumor to the effect that next
week's series between Portland anad Ta
coma. scheduled at Tacoma. would be
played at Spokane, gave the local fans
plenty to talk about yesterday.
Regarding the transfer of the games
scheduled at Tacoma to Spokane, It socma
that the rumor arose from the recent
visit of C. H. Williams, the Spokane
baseball magnate, who was in Portland
for a few days recently. The report in
circulation is to the effect that Mr. Will
lams has offered a certain sum of money,
said to be $2500. to the two Coast League
clubs to play next week's series in Spo
kane. Mike Fisher is said to favor the
transfer, and Williams' visit to Portland
was principally to gain the consent of
the local parties. Just how much .of tho
story is true, so far as the local end is
concerned, is impossible to learn, for
tho local magnates are noncommittal on
The evident object of the Spokane mag
nate is to ultimately secure the Tacoma
franchise for the Falls City, and the ob
ject in securing the transfer of this series
is to demonstrate the paying qualities of
As to the Lohman rumor. Judge Mc
Credle aHd Secretary Ely, together with
other of tho local magnates, are united
in their denial of the report.

Athletes From All Parts ot the
Northwest Come to Compete for
Points In the World's
Multnomah leads In the P. N. A. cham
pionship games, tho first seven events
of which took place on the Exposition

from all parts of the Northwest com
peted for points, and at tho close of the
day the representatives of the Multnomah
Club had piled up 29 tallies, against 23
for Seattle nnd 1 for the Brockton Point
Interesting features of yesterday's meet
were the quarter, the broad Jump and
the 56-pound weight. The latter event Is
not Included In collegiate meets, and
hence has not been seen on local fields
for some time. McDonald of Seattlo
broke the Northwest record by tossing
the weight out 27 feet 9i inches.
The 440-yard dash was run In the re
markably quick time of 50 3-5, Williams
and Grecnhaw making a very close fln-
ish at the tape. The hundred was not !
run as fast as expected, due to the fact
that Smlthson. who makes the distance
In 10 fiat, had a sprained tendon, and
could not do himself Justice. His run
ning mate, Williams, took first at 10 2-5.
The weather was ideal, and the track
In very good condition. The remaining

Blsley Match Hns Exciting: Finish,
Westminsters Breaking Tic.
by Steady Work.
BISLET. England. July 7. Tho close
finish of the Initial range In the match
between the teams of tho Seventh Regi
ment. N. G. S.. New York, and the West
minster Yoluntcers yesterday for the Sir
Vincent Shield Increased the Interest In
todays' shooting, bringing out even a
larger gallery than yesterday.
On the whole, the breeze was very light,
but the sun was much stronger and the
glare In their faces Interfered with tho
marksmen. The heat was oppressive.
The morning's trains brought out a
number of American and British military
men. and there was quite a gathering of
former members of the Seventh, who are
now visiting England.
The Americans started badly, Meyer
missing twice nnd Short once. The vis
itors had some trouble with the targets,
two of which had to be shifted. The
Westminsters shot more evenly. The to
tals at JO-yard range were
Westminsters, 359; Americans, SSI.
The Westminsters scored more than the
Sevenths In the StiO yards, and completed
the third range of the match with an
advantage of three points, the totals of
the three ranges being
Westminsters. 1H5; Americans, 1112.
The Westminsters retained their ad
vantage and won the match. 14S0 to 14M).
The finish of the match was most ex
citing. When Crall and Beach and the
two Fultons came up to shoot, the West
minsters had a lead of seven points. The
Americans' first nlno shots evened the
score, but the Englishmen overtook them
again by steady shooting and gained ten
points. The Americans were first to con
gratulate the winners.
