THE BIORNIXG OREGOXIAN, SATURDAY. AUGUST 24, 1907.
Controversy Seems to Lie En
tirely Between Hayward
and Jack King.
Multnomah Club Officials lioatli to
Bts Drawn Into Wrangle and
Think Belligerent Agitator3
' Should Settle It Themselves.
When Jack King offered to bet $100
that Dan Kelly would not get the place
(meaning to finish second) In the 100
yard dash at the A. A. U. games at the
Jamestown Exposition, it was believed
that the failure of Trainer Hayward to
cover the wager had ended the incident,
but Instead, unknown persons began
throwing aspersions at King, and another
athletic scandal promises to develop.
King is credited with claiming that
Kelly is a professional and alleges that
he received a sum of money from the
proceeds of the football game between
the University of Oregon, of Eugene, and
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club,
of this city.
In the controversy between King and
Hayward over Kelly the Multnomah Club
has been brought into the argument, and
on this account the club officials, while
admitting King's thorough knowledge of
athletics in this section of the country,
deny that the books of the club will Bhow
any discrepancy as far as the receipts of
the game are concerned. On the other
feand the Oregon men claim that even
rere such a thing to be so and had they
eld out a sum of money for any purpose
'hatever, they ask what evidence there
Is to show that such a sum had been
given to Kelly or to any other man.
King's statement as to the money part of
the deal is denied by all. and both sides
fefm to agree that the dispute lies with
King and Hayward, with the local club
men holding the position that it is up to
the State University to disprove the Port
land man or discharge Hayward.
Club AVould Keep Out.
The Multnomah Club is not desirous of
mixing up in the dispute for the reason
that they do not wish to appear in the
light of "knocking" Kelly, for It has been
already reported that they are not
pleased with Kelly's refusing to run un
der Multnomah colors at the World's
lair. The report is totally denied by the
clubmen, who have already expressed the
hope that the Oregon champion will be
successful under his varsity colors. As
for the allegation that the books of the
club will show that jvelly received money
from the football receipts, A. O. Jones,
secretary of the club said:
"To my certain knowledge my books
will not show anything of the kind, and I
think Mr. King was hasty in his state
ment. Multnomah had no dealings with
Kelly as far as Jamestown is concerned,
neither are we sore at him for refusing
our offer in preference to that of Oregon.
I cannot see where we should be mixed
up In the Hayward-Klng dispute, fof that
is a matter to be settled between the two
men and the University of Oregon. 'It
King can prove his charge of profession
alism against Kelly, the athlete should be
dealt with by the University.
Jones Denies Charge.
"As for having issued any statement of
the accounts of the receipts from the
football games, I have never done so,' for
I have never been requested to do so by
a bona fide member of the club or any
one else authorized to so inquire."
Frank J. Lonergan, who was man
ager of the Multnomah track team at
the Spokane meet when Kelly made
his record, which King disputes, and
also at the recent meet at Seattle
when Kelly failed to run, expressed
himself as follows:
"I have every reason to believe that
Kelly made his record and is entitled
to the same. I was present at the time
and saw nothing wrong and will vouch
for the timers. Jack King is as well
posted on athletics as anyone in the
Northwest, and usually knows what
he is talking about, but in respect to
the record made at Spokane I think
he is mistaken. As to the charge of
professionalism I am not in a position
to dispute him for I have had no con
nection with the football games ex
cept as a player and know nothing re
garding the handling of the funds. The
controversj- eeems to lie between
King and Hayward and it should be
settled between them and the Uni
versity of Oregon. The charge of pro
fessionalism in amateur athletics is an
ugly one and should be proven or dis
proved immediately. As King has pub
licly brought forth the charge it is
up to the State University to prove it."
Vhnt Edgar Frank Says.
Edgar Frank, one of the club di
rectors, expresses the same view of the
situation as did Mr. Lonergan. "I
have known Jack King for a number
of years," said Frank, "and he is as
well informed on athletics as anyone
I know, yet I think he was hasty.
"The charge of professionalism crops
cut continually and several cases have
been proven in the past, but in the
present instance Multnomah cannot af
ford to be mixed up in It for the rea
son that it will, immediately be said
we are sore because Kelly is not to
compete at Jamestown for us.
"We have no grudge against Kelly,
nor have we against King, and hope
.that the charges will not be continued
for the sake of all concerned. The
simplest way out of the matter now
that, it is started seems to be that Ore
gon should quietly investigate the af
fair and either disprove the charge
or get rid of Hayward."
Jack King, when seen last evening,
repeated that he was ready to back
up what he said in reference to Kelly
(and Hayward. His statement in brief
,is as follows:
King Makes Statement.
"Kelly and Hayward know that what I
said was true, and I do not like the way
they have tried to belittle- me in their in
terviews. I have been connected with
athletics for over 20 years, and know Bill
Hayward from the time he started foot
tracing, and furthermore, in all the time I
have been in athletics no one can say that
: I ever used a crooked method to attain
I the end I desired, either for myself or
. for any of i the athletes I have trained.
,Th wager I made, and which is still un
.covered, seems to have worried some peo
ple considerably. I have nothing further
(to say at present."
The worda "at present" were uttered in
a significant manner and might be con
strued to mean there may be more to fol
low in the event that the matter is not
dropped. When pressed for a reason as to
;why he had issued his defy in the first
3!ace. King replied, reiterating portions of
hla former statement:
"I have always been fair and square in
yathtetlca. As is well known, the only
thing an amateur hopes to attain is to se
cure a record for some meritorious feat
on the field or track, and do you think it
Is just or right to have all the athletes
of this and generations to come strive
to attain or lower a record that has not
been made legitimately? That's all."

THREE CHEEKS FOR RUGBY
Berkeley Athletes Rally for New
Style of Football.
BERKELEY, Aug. 23. (Special.) Foot
ball men of the university, including
players, coaches and trainers, held their
first rally of the year on the campus this
afternoon, heard speeches by the idols
of the gridiron, gave three cheers for
Rugby and went out to make ready for
a campaign designed to beat Stanford
at Rugby in November on the latter's
own playing ground.
It was apparent that Rugby would
have enthusiastic support from the
players, old and new. Cal Haffey, cap
tain of the '07 team, said after the meet
ing: "There is just about four times as
much enthusiasm on tap here today as
there was last year at this particular ses
sion, when the ball was set rolling."

E WILD HEAVE
Almost Perfect Game Lost to

SCORES ONLY RUN MADE
Barns and Kinsella Fight Pitchers'
Battle - and Only One Beaver
Reaches Third Fielding Al
most Devoid of Blunders.
LOS ANGELES. Cal., Aug. 23. (Spe
cial.) One wild heave by little runt Fay
in the fifth inning and a Los Angeles
run came over the plate, and this was
the only score made today in one of the
best games of the year and one of the
shortest, for Umpire Kelly kept the men
moving from the start.
It was a pitchers' battle between Burns
and Kinsella and there was practically no
difference between them. There was lit
tle chance for any fancy plays, for the
pitching was too good, and, aside from
Fay's wild throw to first, the fielding
was perfect, merely a case of which
team would first be favored by luck, and
the locals proved the ones.
Only one man reached third for Port
land and that was Atherton, who doubled
to center in the second round and ad
vanced on a wild pitch. Aside from
Brashear, who scored the only run, Cra
vath reached mlrd on his double to
right in the second and Brashear's sac
rifice, but he wag caught oft the bag on
a double play.
After one was out for the locals in the
last of the fifth, Brashear singled to leit
and stole second. Then Nagle hit a fast
grounder near Fay and in his haste to
make an out, threw wild to first and
Atherton fell in trying to stretch for the
ball and it rolled far enough towards the
grandstand for Brashear to score from

Payments to Auditor for Ab
stracts Go to County.
STATE ATTORNEY SO RULES
However, if Work Is Independent of
Official Duties, In Case of
Treasurer, He May ltetain
the Fees so Charged.
OL.TMPIA, Wash., Aug. 23. (Special.)
In an opinion to the Prosecuting Attorney
of Cowlitz County, the Attorney-General
ruled today that "the fees- charged by
County Auditors or deputies for prepar
ing abstracts or title, whether during or
after office hours, must be paid Into the
county treasury for the benefit of the
county. In the same manner as the other
fees officially collected by him.
He also ruled that "as to County Treas
urers, the preparation of ordinary ab
stracts would appear entirely independent
of the duties of a County Treasurer, and
if the abstract In question has no connec
tion with any, of the duties or courtesies
of the office of County Treasurer, the Attorney-General
would see no objection to
the County Treasurer charging and re
taining the fee. It Is not presumed, how
ever, that any such Independent work
would be done to the neglect of his offi
cial duties. But if the abetraetingr'arises
out of any matter relating to the duties
of his office, a County Treasurer, If he
performs the work, should either perform
the same gratuitously or, if a fee Is
charged, the same should be accounted
"Whether a County Treasurer or his
deputy, therefore, could charge or retain
the fee for abstracting would depend upon
the actual facts. In case of doubt, how
ever, it should either be performed gra
tuitously or the charge should be turned
over to the county."
