Geer. served as Captain in the early Indian wars of Oregon, was Identified with some of the earliest under takings in Oregon's struggle for state hood, and as an importer and breeder of fine stock and as a student agricultur ist and horticulturist, probably did as much, if not more, than any other indi vidual toward laying the foundation upon which the present State Fair has become such a popular Institution.

However they won the game, and that is a big boost for them. - When inside baseball is considered, Casey's team plays rings around Ta coma, but Hall's team has so many good hitters it is always a dangerous club. George Schreeder, the genial owner of the Tacoma club, who has spent several days In Portland, left for home last night. He thinks he is the Jonah as far as the weather is concerned. A gentleman named Cohn and another named Brown can be expected to take to the tali and uncut In the very near future. Thttt is, the vamoose stunt will take place suddenly If Dug's work is continued. Should Spokane lost . a couple more games to Seattle, President Lucas will have to call out the militia to protect his umpires at Spokane. They never lose a game on the square there. Big Eddie Kinsella was the "clear Havana" yesterday, for the lanky Indi vidual had a srreat deal more than a glove in the game, as the strikeout list will show. Phil Cooney was too anxious to make basehits on the home grounds yester day, and his anxiety caused him to swing too quick, which resulted In five pop flies a3 his portion of the batting proclivities displayed by Casey's bunch. Swanton was the victim of a high way robbery stunt on the part of Mackin in the seventh inning. The Tiger second-sacker hooked one over second and. while off balance, threw to first ahead of Swanton. Moral Run everything out. Casey and Cooney pulled off some nifty fielding stunts around that second bag yesterday, and the manner in which the duo Is performing would have made Walter McCredle sigh sev eral more sighs of regret. . The San Francisco club yesterday again niado enough runs In one Inning to win the game, for the Seals scored no more after grabbing five in the third inning. However, one cannot ex pect much else from Cal Ewlng's joke club, the Seal appendix, Oakland. J. Cal Ewing would do well to give his umpires a few weeks vacation, send them to Portland, and have them watch the manner In which President Lucas" umpires handle the players and the game. Some two-hour games might be eliminated in the Coast League. . Johnny Bender, who was known to Portland fans in 1907 as Jack Burdette, s one of Tacoma's backstops. Johnny caught yesterday and did excellent work. He showed he has not forgotten how to hit the ball, althougJt on one occasion he fanned when a hit would have meant a flock of runs.
