J. PETRAIN. "Speck" Harkness had his fence ball working in fine fhape in the first inning of yesterday's Kame and San Francisco managed to clout enough of his offerings to the boundaries of the park to chase a flock of runs over the pan; enough to win the game and incidentally the series. The final score was 6 to 4, Portland mak ing a heroic effort to overcome the tre mendous handicap allowed by the speckled one. Eastley was on the mound for Mohler and was steady at all times. Barring that first inning, the game was a snappy one despite the frigid atmos pheric conditions and the Interruptions caused by rainfall and wrangling with the Joke' umpire. It required a home run clout over the right garden wall by Buddy Ryan to start the home team In run-getting, yet frequent chances to get an ace recorded were passed up by the home guard simply because they were afraid to take the chances San Francisco did. However, several lively fielding stunts were injected Into the game, and some of these plays were startling enough to arouse the freerlng gathering of 2500 fans who assembled despite the threatening oloud banks and occasional showers. The Seals opened the first canto as though the Portland team was to be annihilated. "Speck" Harkness thought he could fool Mohler's men like he did on his other appearance, but he was about aa much of a puzzle as Saturday's primary election Is In doubt. Inning Proves Swatfest. Roily Zelder was the first Seal up, end despite the uncertain footing In the hog wallow about home plate he managed to pole one at Harkness that' bounded off his shins and Roily gets credit for a hit because the quagmire Infield was too llppery for the ball to be fielded. Mohler sacrificed and then the swatfest started. Tennant singled to left, sending Zelder home. "Ping" Bodie pinged one over Buddy Ryan's skypleoe, which went for three sacks, scoring Tennant. "Speckles" handed Melchior a pass, and when Jimmy Williams clouted safely to right Bodle registered and Melchior brought up at third. McCredie trotted out his belated hoisting apparatus and Jerked Harkness, replacing him with Carson. With three runs In and Richard "Williams up, Carson failed to fool the blonde and the two base runners scored on Nick's double, making five aces for the inning. For tunately Carson got into action soon and the run-gotting ceased until the fifth. In the fifth, Melchior walked and was forced by J. Williams, who scored on hits by Nick 'Williams and McArdle. Portland took a brace In the home team's half of this session, when Breen started things with a two-bagger. Kennedy poled a high infield fly which dropped safe without anyone touching it and two men were on. Armbruster and Carson were outs, but Buddy Ryan drove one over the right garden wall, making a' cleanup, and Portland was represented on the scoreboard with three runs. In the eighth a pass to Speas and Ort's corking two-bagger gave Portland the last run, but still two runs shy of the Seals' total. The Portland and San Francisco teams left for the south last night.- and the Seals are ambling home In the lead to play the Joke Oakland team, while Port land In slated to mix it with Happicus Hogan's seemingly rejuvenated Vernon club.

VANCOUVER IS IN LEAD now holds first place ijj tri-city' league. St. John Is Defeated on Home Dia mond by One-Sided Score of 11 to 2. Vancouver Jumped Into the lead In the Trl-City League race yesterday when they defeated St. John before a small crowd at St. John, 11 to 2. The cold weather was too much for both the players and the spectators, many of whom were forced to leave before the end of the game. Pitcher Stone, of the Apostles, demon strated that he is most decidedly not a cold weather pitcher, for the Vancouver team batted him out of the box in the eighth Inning, every player on the Wash ington team coming to bat. The team registered six runs before the third man was put out. Two-baggers, triples and singles dropped around the diamond al most as fast as the hard rain of the morning. After five men had hit him safely, another been hit by a pitched ball and another sacrificed, Stone was pulled out of the box and a lanky slabster by the same name, but with the initial D. in front, then took up the task and con tributed another run when he allowed Munger to hit safely, scoring Causey. Up till the eighth inning the work of both teams had been good, although nelthe- pitcher was able to do his best. A cold wind swept across the diamond, chilling both players and spectators to the bone, and Stone, a Caiiforntan used to warmer weather, was the first to blow up. Vancouver certainly deserved to win, for the team showed the best form of any of the Trl-City nines this season. They batted and ran bases well; besides field ing In gilt-edged fashion. The batting of Gains, Sudds and Causey was espe cially good.Gains secured a triple, dou ble and a single out of four times at bat. FOREST GROVE DOWNS ALBINA Colts Out-Play Visitors and Score Ends 4 to 3. FOREST GROVE, Or., May 9'. (Spe cial.) Albina met defeat at the hands of Manager Wirtz's Colts this afternoon by a score of 4 to 2, in the best-contested game of the season. The Colts opened the game by batting out three runs off Concannon In the last half of the first, but they made no more runs until the seventh, when they scored one. Albina scored one In the second and one in the fifth. The only show Albina had of winning was in the first half of the ninth, when the three bags were filled with no outs. Robinson for the Colts fanned one, and the next man drove an Infield hit which was handled to third, then back to sec ond. The forced runner to second was not caught out, but he stepped off the bag, and was put out by the second base man. The decision was close, and Al bina says it will contest the game.

FANDOM AT RANDOM THE frisky ones came vowing to take the series and a combination of favorable umpiring, large bunches of luck and the stage fright of Portland's youngsters turned the trick. McCredie lost two games of the last series simply because he started with the wrong pitcher. Still a manager can not be blamed for that, yet Walter Is somewhat too slow in Jerking 'em when they show wrong. George Schreeder is worrying because J Casey's team might get pinched over in nutuuvrr, iui me t.nucK outclass nave a nasty habit of keeping people in Jail until they are tried, and George thinks his Tigers may not have a chance to play here at all. Eastley. the youngster who worked for the Seals, is a classy little pitcher. He was hit hard at times, but managed to work himself out of tight holes in a most clever manner. Kid Mohler and Dick Breen made some great stops and throws to first despite the muddy field yesterday. Mohler was especially brilliant, and Roily Zeider's word at third was splendid. San Francisco has won the last three games practically in the first inning, and after that session has been helpless. If Portland ever acquires the knack of dis posing of the Seals at the start the rest should be easy. e Dugdale's Seattle bunch trimmed Aber deen again yesterday, giving Lynch five out of the six games played. Dug seems to have all the luck this year. Still the season Is young and he may sweat off several extra pounds) in the series re maining to be played. . Pitcher Bd Klnsella, of the Portland Northwestern League club, arrived home from Vancouver. B. C. yesterday and will probably pitch the opening game here tomorrow. Big Eddie is In splendid form and says Casey's team will make good yet. SEATTLE IS WINNER Defeats Aberdeen in Close Game, 3 to 1. RAYMOND STAR AT SHORT Does Phenomenal Work at Times.

Three Oregon Grapplers Will Go Against Iovtan in Handicap Event at Heilig. Frank A. Gotch, of Humboldt, la., the champion heavyweight wrestler of the world, arrived in Portland at 8 o'clock CHAMPION WRESTLER OP THE t WORLD, NOW IN PORTLAND. Frank Gotch, Who Gives an Ex hibition Here Tomorrow NlKbt. last night and Is quartered at the Hotel Oregon. The big grappler is to appear at the Heilig Theater tomorrow night, when ha will wrestle several local celeb rities in tha endeavor to give the fans of Portland some Idea of what he can do at the mat game. In order to give the champion some thing of a run for his money, at least three Oregon wrestlers will contest with him In the effort to prevent the cham pion .rom throwing them a certain num ber of times in one hour. In addition to Eddie O'Connell, the local champion welterweight. William West, of Medford, and Roger Cornell, the trainer of the Portland baseball teams, will as sist O'Connell In the effort to stop the world'3 champion. Roger Cornell Is something of a wres tler himself, and at one time was the grappling instructor of the Olympic Club, of San Francisco. Previous to accepting the position of instructor, he defeated Ed Johnson, of the Multnomah Club, for the championship of the Pacific Coast, and is really a clever wrestler. Cornell has been induced to go on against Gotch in this handicap bout, and modestly says that ne does not expect to defeat the champion, but that he will do his best to make a showing. When seen last night Gotch expressed regret at not being able to see Ed Ken nedy, the first baseman of McCredie's Pacific Coast Club, who left for Cali fornia 15 minutes before Gotch arrived. Gotch wrestled , Kennedy at Belllngham several years ago, and after thaf meeting tha Iowan gave Kennedy several lessons which helped the ball tosser considerably. The two are fast friends, and Gotch wired Kennedy from Pendleton, telling of the time of his arrival, but big Ed could not remain over to see his old friend. Gofch's one ambition is to get the big Russian, Hackenscbmldt, on the mat again, but he expresses considerable doubt as to the success of his wish, far the Russian has evaded him time and again, and especially during his visit to Eng land last Summer. Gotch has been invited to take part In the opening day ceremonies of the Pacific Coast League, and has accepted. The world's champion wrestler will of ficiate at the opening a la James J. Jeff ries at the Los Angeles opening a year ago, and will hold the indicator for the inaugaral ceremonies. WJLLAMETTE HAS COLD FEET Track Team Sidesteps Contract to Meet Pacific University. PACIFIC UNIVERSITY, Forest Grove, Or., May 9. (Special.) Willamette Uni versity has sidestepped her contract for a track meet with Pacific , on the local field May 22, thus leaving' Manager H. L. McCoy short on competitive contests. The only meet definitely arranged for is with McMlnnvllle College on the Bap tists' field. May 29. The contest prom ises to be a' close one, and Coach Hahn will bend every effort to get his men in condition to defeat the representatives of the neighboring institution. A fair com parison of the records of the two teams thus far gives Pacific a slight advantage over the McMlnnvilleites. Negotiations are pending with the In dians for a meet at Chemawa during the first week in July, but nothing definite has so far been decided upon. . Evening Ball Games at Albany. ALBANY. Or.. May 9. (Special.) An amateur baseball league for a series of evening games during May and June has been perfected.

WILL GREET COLTS Fans to Give Royal Welcome to Northwestern Team. PARADE IN AUTOS Casey's Players Have Been Strength ened From McCredie's Bunch and Are Expected to Make Good Showing In Portland. BY W. J. PETRAIN. Portland is the only minor league city In the United States to enjoy two open ings in one baseball season. Tomorrow afternoon the second formal inaugural of a playing season to occur here this year will take place. The opening tomorrow is that of the Northwestern League, and the fans will welcome Pearl Casey's Colts and the Tacoma Tigers. It Is to be made the oc casion, for a demonstration similar to that extended Walter McCredie. A big automobile parade has been planned, and, as the members of the Portland Automobile Club and the local auto dealers have risen to the occasion by contributing the use of their machines for the parade. The Pacific Coast League opening saw SI automobiles in line, and tomorrow Pearl Casey will be greeted by as many, if not more, machines filled, with enthusiastic admirers of the Portland Colts. George S. Shepherd, Hugh McCredie, W. T. Pangle, John F. Carroll and others have been active in the work of preparing for the opening of the Northwestern sea son, and. unless the weather man inter venes, the opening day of President Lucas' organization promises to be a gala event in Portland's baseball history. McCredie's Team Goes South. Walter McCredie and his Portland Pa cific Coast League pennant chasers left last night to give batle to J. Cal Ewing and his umpires, as well as the Cali fornia teams, on the California lots, and will be gone three weeks. In the meantime Manager Casey and his more or less promising Colts will hold forth at Vaughn street for three weeks. Schreeder, of the Tacoma Tigers, says he does not expect to trim Casey every game, but, before the series is concluded, George thinks Russ Hall will have several more games stowed away under his belt than graced Tacoma's win column Sunday. Schreeder is determined to strengthen his club, and in the effort to do so he has landed Pitcher Berger, of San Fran cisco, and expects to surprise the North western Leaguers with two more good men very soon. The Tacoma magnate boasts that he has never ridden a loser and docs not intend to do so this season. His ambition is to puncture Dugdale's balloon, and he asserts that he will prove the undoing of the Seattle team before the season is over. "Somebody said Dug had a two-man team-,'' said Schredeer yesterday. "Well, I am firmly convinced that he hasn't any team at all, and once he hits the toboggan he'll not stop short of the bot tom. That bunch will be tearing off each other's heads when it begins to lose. In my opinion Seatlte and Aberdeen will fight it out for the cellar, for Rowland has underestimated this league, and his Three-Eye Leaguers won't stand the gaff." Thinks Seattle Is Weak. The Tacoma manager thinks that Dug dale's bumping is due to begin next week, when his team invades the stronghold of Bob Brown's Spokane Indians. He says that If Spokans gets Mike Lynch and the Seattle bunch on tbe run it Is quite pos sible that Spokane will clean up the en tire series. Manager McCredie, when he departed south . last night, left Catcher Jerry Sbeehan and Pitchers Gough and Seaton behind. All three are to Join Casey's squad and work out with them during the tall manager's absence. Gough is to be re tained by the Pacific Coast League club, for he is a pitcher whose ability will de velop as soon as he is physically fit for hard work. The clever youngster has been ill for some time, and is not yet strong enough to work at his best. Mc Credie figures that a few weeks' work out with Casey's team, during which time he may have a chance to pitch one or two games, will do the young fellow a world of good, and by the time the Coasters return he will be ready to get into the game in earnest. Tom Seaton was signed originally for Casey, hut McCredie was shy of pitchers in ths south and retained the youngster on the Coast club. He has done so well that McCredie believes he will be one of the stars in the Northwestern League. Sheehan Left for Casey. Troeh seems to be a weak sister back of the bat. and Jerry Sheehan will prob ably alternate behind the bat with Tom Murray. Sheehan is a capable catcher in every respect, and while he is new to the game, having only turned out from the amateur ranks a short time ago, he is picking up knowledge of Inside work rapidly and will undoubtedly prove a valuable asset to the Portland club. I Casey's weakest department seems to be his outfield, for he has not a single out fielder who Is batting stronprly enough to hold a job in a bush league. This is the most surprising thing about Casey's trio, for all ti-ree men are players who have hitherto been credited with good av erages. Today not one of them Is hitting better than .175, and an outfielder, un less he is a sensational player, is con sidered worthless to a club unless he bats close to the .300 mark. Bassey, Garry and Murphy may yet strike their gait. At any rate all of them are capable of much better percentages than, are now credited to them. First Baseman Charley Mullin has prov en the. find of the season. He is yet far from being a finished first sacker. but he is fast learning to field that bag, while he is the batter par excellence of the team. The tall, red-headed lad is the most fromi3ing youngster who has graced a Portland uniform in years. Cooney, Casey and Staton are doing good work, ard if the outfielders get to hitting.
