S OKUID'S WEEK
Commuters Will Play Giants
on Local Diamond.
THREATEN TO TAKE GAMES
Four New Men Are to Appear With
the Athens' Nine and Four
Old Ones Are SJated
"Pop" Van Haltren and tho Oakland
bunch of Commuters -will open up today,
a -week's series with McCredie's Giants,
or ag they are now called, after the loss
of six straights to the Angels, Pigmies.
This will mark the second appearance of
the Oaklanders In Portland this season.
On their last visit they failed to annex
a game, having dropped all Ave of the
games played that week, but this time
they claim that the least they get
is an even break, fqr several new men
are to join thorn In this city.
Among the new men signed by the
Oakland team is a third baseman, which
probably means the retirement of "Brick"
Devoreaux, . one of the most popular ball
tossers that ever donned a uniform on
the coast Devereaux Is a good ballplayer
today, but the Oakland management Is
said to desire a change of faces and the
retirement of the "Red Top" is In line
with that policy. This player will not
be long Idle for several clubs In this
league could use him to advantage right
now. He may be a weak man with the
Ptrlck, but there are few men In the
league who can field that difficult corner
In the manner In which Bill Devereaux
performs. Another feature of the ".Red
Dog's" work is the fact that he puts
more ginger Into the game than any
other man In the league, and his comical
antics on the side lines have furnished
many a laugh to the fans, with whom he
Is vastly popular. Devereaux would find
a royal welcome among the fans of this
city should Manager McCredie pick him
up If he geta his conge from the Oak
Strclb Slated to Go.
Another player on the Oakland payroll
who is said to be slated for release is
Julie Strelb. Strclb Is another weak man
with the stick, but his fielding around
the first sack Is on a par with that of
any othor man at that position In the
league. Just who the other men to go
are is not known definitely, but as there
are four new men to Join the club, two
more will be released.
Portland will also have a couple of new
men In lino before the week Is out. for
1 Infielder Sweeny 'Is due in a couple of
days and Pitcher Henderson will report
to McCredie on the first of the month.
Sweeny Is a youngster who was given
a trial by the Cleveland club while Man
ager Lajolo was on the disabled list, and
made a fine showing. Henderson Is the
pitcher Rubs Hall had on his Seattle team
for a tryout last Spring and released
without much of a trial. He went to the
Southern league where he made good,
and Is at liberty now on account of the
yellow lever epidemic which necessitated
the transferring of several of the clubs
and the reduction of the playing staff.
Oakland "Versus Portland.
Oakland and Portland will play this
afternoon. The game starts promptly at
3:20 o'clock. slck will pitch for Port
land and Graham for Oakland. "Slats"
Davis, who has officiated as umpire here
during tho past three weeks, left Sun
day night for San Francisco and will
work -there during the next few weeks.
Jim McDonald, the veteran umpire, whose
return to the game gave so much satis
faction to the fans all over the circuit,
win probably officiate here during the
week. McDonald Is by long odds the
most popular umpire that ever handled
an Indicator In the Coast League and his
assignment to this city is appreciated
by the fans as well as by the players.

A B. Cummins today made public his
reply to the letter of Secretary of the
Treasury Shaw, who criticised him for
misquoting the Secretary in his speech
