The second game of the season was easy
money for the Portland team, for McCre
die'e men had their batting clothes on and
slammed the offerings of Bill Reidy all
over the lot. It was a cinch from the
start for the local bunch of swatsmen, for
In their half of the first canto six blngles
were good for five aces, although In the
course of the Inning Mr. Reidy contrib
uted a palpable balk, and as Umpire Knell
ruled accordingly. Manager Van Haltren
(lusted all the way from center field to
the scorer's stand for the purpose of reg
istering his disapproval and at the same
time let It be known that he protested
N'o Score for Oakland.
Oakland failed to negotiate a single
score during the entire nine Innings, and
the person to whom moat of the credit for
this contingency must be accorded Is Will
Essick, the blonde slab artist McCredie
delegated to shoot 'em over for Portland.
He surely had something on the benders
he served to the visitors, because they
were helpless when the matter of nego
tiating hits was necessary to the accumu
lating of runs. For five Innings not an
Oaklander was able to land a safe swat,
and during the last four sessions just
three hits were allowed by the local favor
ite. A total of 16 hits, three of which were
two-baggers gave Bill Reidy something to
think about, during the matinee, and inci
dentally gave "IK.c" Anderson and "Mega
phone" Jack Atherton something to crow
about. From the time that Jimmy Mc
Hale led off in the.flrst Inning with a two
base wallop, a perfect avalanche of base
hits rattled from off the bata of the Port
land players. The chief gunners of the
occasion were Mike Mitchell. Larry" Mc
Iean. "Pete" Lister, Pat Donahue and
Charlie Moore, all of whom acquired two
or more hits off the ex-Brooklynlte'B de
livery. Lightning Double Play.
By remaining until the last Inning the
tnns were rewarded by witnessing a light
ning double play from 9weeney to Dona
lute to Lister, which took place with two
Oaklanders on the sacks and none in the
cooler, which Indicated that a shut-out
was about to be averted. The double took
the wind out of the sails of the visitors,
and the best lanky, red-topped Jim' Hack
ett could do in the effort to score Artie
Kruger was the sky to Mike Mitchell.
Phil Knell, while not so raw as on the
opening day, was off on several decisions,
but on this occasion the home team was
the gainer. '
The most surprising thing of the game
was the hooking of two bases In the first
' Inning by Larry McLean, who stole sec
ond and a few seconds later purloined
home plate assisted by Charlie Moore,
who stole second and third in rapid suc
cession. Todav will be ladies" day. and Calin or

Seattle and Los Angeles Want
to Drop Out.
OTHERS ARE NOT WILLING
Portland Will Stand by San Fran.
Cisco and Oakland as Long aa
Those Two Clubs Desire
to Play Ball.
In spite of the evident desire of the
San Francisco and Oakland magnates
to keep the Pacific Coast League intact,
persistent rumors of the dlsbandment
of the league continue to circulate.
Seattle and Los Angeles are the seats
of dissatisfaction. James F. Morley
desires to stand from under and give up
baseball for the year, and by so doing
to take down hi3. $1500 deposit, now In
the hands of President Bert. To do
this Morley must remain with the cir
cuit as long as does the majority of
the other clubs, for should he disband
his team at present, his franchise and
team would be forfeited to the league,
and some one else placed in charge at
the Angel city. Morley knows this, and
will hang onto his franchise until It
can be definitely dPtermined whether
or not he stands to lose more than his
deposit by so doing.
In Seattle's case, the magnates of the
Puget Sound City have lost considerable
money in the past three years, and
have been advocating the Northwest
ern circuit for some time. When the
season started this year Seattle agreed
to stand by the league for the present
year, and to go back on that guaran
tee at this time would not be looked
upon as sportsmanlike by the baseball
world. In view of the recent catas
trophe that has temporarily over
whelmed the California clubs, it seems
to be the duty of the other clubs in the
league to stand by Oakland and San
Francisco until the owners of these
two clubs are willing to give up.
When they say they have enough,
then it would be proper to entertain
a proposition to affiliate with another
circuit. This is the view of affairs
taken by Judge W. W. McCredie, presi
dent of the Portland club, and which
is echoed by the Portland fans.
At the Seattle conference last eve
ning no definite decision relative to
nffiiiatfng. with the Northwestern
League was reached, for the Seattle
magnates are somewhat up In the air
as to the status of the Coast League
on account of the evident desire of the
San Francisco, Oakland, Fresno and
Portland clubs to hold the league in
tact. The Seattle magnates have wired
Secretary Farrell, of the National As
sociation of Baseball Leagues asking
permission to release their players and
allowing them to play" with Northwest
ern clubs with the proviso that the
player be returned to them next sea
son, just as Los Angeles Is reported
as having done. Whether the request
will be granted remains in doubt, for
as yet the Coast League has not dis
banded, and while the indications are I
tnar. sucn an event may come to pass
in the course of the next few weeks,
the association cannot grant any .re
quest of the kind until such a step may
be acted upon by the local league of
ficials. The Northwest League is especially
desirous of acquiring the cities of
Portland and Seattle, and will hold
the proposition up until further devel
opments. WOULD NOT BE OUTLAWS
Seattle Club Wires to Find Out What
Its Rights Are.
SEATTLE, May 3. (Special.) After an
hour's conference tonight, the Seattle
club and President W. H. Lucas, of the
Pacific Northwest League, telegraphed to
Secretary Farrell to ask the rights t of
Portland and Seattle. Before any definite
steps are taken by the Northwest League
and the two outside clubs, it is desired
to know whether Seattle and Portland
can protect their players.
The point was raised early In the con
ference that unless permission was had
to withdraw from the Pacific Coast
League, Seattle and Portland would be
in the position of outlaws, their players
liable to seizure by any club under pro
tection and their territory subject to
invasion. At the same time, the North
west League wanted assurance that if
this season's schedule is disarranged, and
the two outside clubs Invited in,' that
they would stay for a term of years. No
definite period was specified, but the
Northwestern teams did not want to tie
up for a single season.
Seattle unofficially took the position
that eventually the Coast cities svtll
form a logical circuit, but that the
Northwest League should be joined for
a few years until San Francisco can re
build and the Northern towns grow.
The conferees could not get anywhere
in their negotiations today because of the
uncertainty of the National organization's
stand. If Secretary Farrell finds after
telegraphic correspondence tomorrow
that the inclination is to stand by Cali
fornia, it Is probable negotiations will be
declared off. If Seattle and Portland will
be protected, Seattle will demand strong
ly a Northwest organization. Another
conference will be held tomorrow night.
The agitation of a league change has
upset attendance everywhere. In Tacoma
George M. Shreeder tonight said that the
attendance fell off immediately after the
announcement that a possible affiliation
with Portland and Seattle would upset
schedules and raise the class of baseball.
Manager Dorsey, of Spokane, made a
similar report, and Manager Glllis, of
Butte, Is apprehensive.
The Seattle club has received a letter
from Cal Ewing. who owns the San
Francisco club, urging that Oakland and
San Francisco will be good home towns
six weeks later. Moriey still maintains
the same position In his telegrams to
Seattle that Los Angeles wants to quit.
Seattle has bad no word from Fresno.
Judge McCredie. the Seattle men say,
is trying to force the local club to take
the first jump. If "the water Is fine"
McCredie will come In.
