Casey's Colts took the second Kama
In the Aberdeen series at the Vaughn
street grounds, winning; yesterday with
a score of 8 to 5. This was through the
generosity of Pitcher Ovitz, who gave
passes freely and who allowed four hits
to come In a row In the fifth inning,
retting five, runs and making the game
safe. Lee Samuels was on the firing
line for the Colts and was touched up
In lively fashion all through, but was
fairly steady In pinches.
The Black Cats made a Md for the
game In the final Inning, when three
hits, one a double, and an error by
Adams brought three runs across the
pan. but the lead was too much to
overcome and Samuels got away with
The game was almost devoid of sen
sational features. A few good running
catches, a pretty double play and a few
fairly good stops helped a little, but
the greater part was played to the
tune of Chopin's funeral dirge.
Wake Vp In Fifth.
There was a shade of 'life In the
fifth, when, with a . lead of 1 to 0
against them, the Colts came to the bat
and put Ovltx on the run. He started
the Inning by walking Fournler and
Armbruster, and then Lee Samuels laid
down a pretty sacrifice. Fournier
scored on Adams' bunt when Kreitz
dropped the ball at the plate and Casey
singled, scoring Armbruster. Then
Bassey came through with a double
which scored Adams, while Casey and
l.e Lot ! scored on Mullln's drive. Staton
followed with a hit. but a pop-up to the
outfield ended the agony and the bell
rang five times.
That inning seemed to take the life
out of Aberdeen, and two more came In
- the next inning, when Ovitz hit two
men and walked another. Two of these
-axne In on a hit by Bassey. The effort
by the Black Cats In the ninth was
not seriously regarded at any time, as
the lead was too great and the crowd
imply laughed as the three scores
Bassey's Hitting Feature.
Bassey's hitting was one of the few
redeeming features. Casey. Armbruster
nd Fournler featured In drawing
passes, the trio getting all eight of
the tickets given by Ovitz. Casey
I played a rattling game at second base
and In the seventh inning acted as the
' pivot In a lightning double play when
, .Adams . speared Bewer's liner and
"whipped It to Casey, who made a fast
! relay to first.
Samuels was hit hard all through the
.fame, but, save in the last two innings,
;he kept the clouts well scattered. Two
I of the Aberdeen hits could have been
.(topped had Samuels hastened a little
in covering first base.

FAND0M AT RANDOM
THEKE was a corporal's guard and
no more at yesterday's game, and a
fair majority of those present went
armed with their hammers. Some of the
knockers were called by the ever faith
ful. Hats off to Chinault for getting away,
with his return to the Coast, with a win
over the leaders. Despite the errors, the
ex-Colt Jumped in and took the pole.
Now for the series.
Swalm. left fielder for the Cats, loafed
on Bassey's fly In the sixth yesterday
and let It hit in front of him. Twfc runs
resulted, and both would have been
stopped, as Swalm could have made the
third out by hurrying a bit.
That was a lightning double play in
the seventh inning. Adams started the
play with a great spear and a sharp
toss, and Casey didn't lose a second in
Breen failed to show up yesterday with
the Colts, and some of the fans thought
he was still sulking. Breen has been al
lowed a day or so layoff before start
ing with the Colts. He now says he is
willing to join the team.
Lejeune made a great running catch
Into deep center field In the second in
ning and pulled down Fournier's fly when
It looked like a sure triple or homer.
The lanky one always does get off a few
grandstand stunts while playing in Port
land. Armbruster drew three passes in a row
yesterday, and the fourth time he faced
the pitcher he sent out a single. The
big fellow pegged fairly well, allowing
but two stolen bases.
Reddy Kreitz drew an error yesterday
when he dropped the ball at the plate,
but the pitcher was almost as much at
fault for tossing the ball to him under
handed. There was. a marked absence of ragging
at the umpire In the game at Vaughn
street yesterday. It almost seems like
a different game from that which has
been going on for the last several weeks.
Lejeune evidently has paid his fine of
$25. as he appeared In the game yester
day. While he has beeer an object of
sympathy for some, the general Impres
sion is that he got just about what was
coming to him for the barroom fracas.
The Angels are ahead of the Beavers
now, but with much ball such as Portland
has been playing recently there will be
little chance for Los Angeles to keep in
second place. Portland Is now going out
for the pennant.
Sulky Claflin. of Spokane, was drubbed
In the opening inning . yesterday, and
Brown had to yank the big fellow out
and put In. Killilay. At that, nothing ex
cept a blow-up saved , his game.
I love my Colts, but Oh! you Beavers.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 17. (Special.)
Portland fairly smothered Ed Griffin
with a scries of two-baggers at Free
man's Park this afternoon, six all told,
and although Chenault, the new pitch
er that McCredie borrowed from the
Northwest team, tried to toss the game
away with two careless throws, Carson
went on the mound in the nick of time
and saved the day for the Beavers 6
to 5. McCredie showed much better
judgment than Mohler In the substitu
tion of his twirlers, and It was that,
as much as anything else, that won
the game. .
Even though Chenault's errors start
ed the scoring for the Seals, it was
a good game, nip and tuck all the
way.- The Heavers showed their hitting
strength in the first two Innings, when
they produced a couple of runs. But
just when things were going well for
the visitors, Chenault threw the ball
away Into the right field bleachers,
and as a result the Seals made three
runs and took the lead. Once the Beav
ers tied the score up In the sixth, the
fans settled down to an enjoyment of a
It looked mighty bad for San Fran
cisco when three two-baggers gave the
Beavers three runs in the seventh, but
once again, in the last of the same In
ning, Chenault came to the rescue of
the leaders, passed one, and let the ball
slip through his fingers at a critical
moment, and then gave a hit. Two
runs were scored, and any kind of hit
ting would- have once more put the
Seals out In front. They were not
capable of accomplishing results, how
ever, and the game went to the North

AMERICANS TO BE OUTLAWS?
League Reported to Be Planning
Fight for Next Year.
NEW YORK. Aug. 17. Baseball fans in
the East are interested in the persistent
reports that the American Association
proposes to become an outlaw major
league circuit next year, with clubs In
Chicago, Louisville, Pittsburg, Indianapo
lis, Buffalo, Baltimore, Brooklyn and
either Pittsburg or Newark.
Certain men of wealth In this city have
been approached, so It is reported, by
representatives of Havenor, of Milwau
kee, and Tebeau, of Louisville and Kan
sas City, who are said to be seeking
financial backers. It is reported they
have received encouragement from men
In various cities, and in New York prom
ises are held out of obtaining the balance
The major league magnates declared
they are not worried by these rumors,
but the fact that there has been an early
and big increase in the signing up of as
many of their best players as possible
indicates that they are preparing for war
if war is bound to come.
JONES WANTS TO GO BACK
Ex-Manager of Chicago Team Hun
gers for Old Game.
ST. LOUIS. Aug. 17. "While in Port
land. Or., I spent a delightful day with
Fielder Jones, formerly manager of the
Chicago American League team," said
Robert Lee Hedges, president of the St.
Louis team in that league, yesterday. "He
is making money hand over fist, but he
yearns for the excitement and the cries
of the crowds. Jones sees every game
in Portland, and follows the play keenly.
" "I'd like to go back,' he said, "to the
big circuit and to the big crowds and
the big cities, but I cannot afford to do
it for the mere salary, no matter how
large. I want to buy a half Interest, in
some good major league club. I have
the money, at least within reason, if I
can find the club.' "
"Would you sell him half of your club?"
Mr. Hedges was asked.
The St. Louis club owner smiled and
shook his head.
"That would be telling," he said.

ROLLIE ZEIDER SOLD
COMISKEY BUYS SEAL CHAM
PION FOR $5500.
Must Also Trade Back Two Good
Players for Top-Notcher
From Coast League.
CHICAGO, Aug. 17. (Special.)
Charles A. Comlskey has spent pretty
clo.se to $100,000 so far this season for
new players and now has something
like 25 youngsters on his staff.
His most expensive purchase to date
is Rollie Zeider, the young third base
man from California whose phenomenal
work this year has put the San B'ran
cisco club In the lead. His playing is
the talk of the Coast League. This
player Comiskey drafted last year, but
turned back to San Francisco. There
were no strings to Zeider when he went
back. He became the sole property of
the San Francisco club. After Zeider
started to play such phenomenal ball,
scouts flocked to California to look
him over, but Comiskey beat them to
him, though Zeider cost him a pretty
It is safe to-say that Zeider; will be
one of the highest-priced youngsters
that will graduate into major leagues
next year. He will cost Comiskey
$5600 and two A-l players whom he
must deliver to San Francisco before
next season arrives.

ATHENS TO BE GOAL
Multnomah Will Send Men to
Olympic Games in May.
SMITHSON STAR SPRINTER
Dun Kelly Also to Be Sent if His
Ankle Gets Well Edgar Frank
Will Be Entered in Wrestling.
Season Over in Portland.
Forrest Smithson, the Portland athlete
who holds the world's championship in
the 120-yard high hurdles, will represent
Multnomah Club In the Olympic games
at Athens next May. This is the deflmto
statement made by Frank Watkins,
chairman of the athletic committee of the
Multnomah Club, who states further that
no meet will be held here this Fall that
will give Smithson a chance to establish
a new record.
"Smithson has gone to Tillamook for a
few weeks, and by the time he returns
11 knv will have returned to
school and there will not be enough ath
letes in Portland to warrant a iiieei,
stated Mr. Watkins yesterday afternoon.
"However, Smithson will not go out of
training, but will keep In the best possi
ble condition through the Winter and in
the Spring he will be ready to compete
In the meets held under the auspices of
the A A. U. He will then be sent by
fhe club to New York, where lie will join
the American team and go to the Olympic
games at Athens.
"These games will be held on the sama
large scale as they were In London in
1908 and will be the regular biennial games
with the best track athletes of the world.
But track athletics In Portland for this
season are ended and under the conditions
we will not be able to follow James Sul
livan's suggestion to hold games here this
Fall to give Smithson a chance for a
"The Multnomah Club will also send a
wrestler to the Athens games. This will
be Kdgar Frank, who, we think, is the
greatest 125-pound wrestler in the coun
try. Frank has been wrestling sinoe 1901
and has met with but one defeat in that
time at his weight. That defeat was ad
ministered after a hard match by Dole,
ths intercollegiate champion, who in th.s
same tournament won the American 125
pound championship. Since then Frank
has been wrestling" under the Instruction
of Eddie O'Connell and he has improved
wonderfully in the last two years. In
fact, O'Connell now says that Frank ca.i
defeat any man In the country under
155 pounds In weight.
"The club will send Frank to Athens
in May, where he will wrestle at 11J
pounds, the Olympic weight. Frank can
mak that weight all right, as he has
done so on many occasions and been
"The club will also send Dan Kelly to
Athens if his ankle gets in shape so that
he can compete. He will be entered in
the broad jump If he wants to go, and
I think there is no living man who can
beat him when he is in condition. Gil
bert, fhe polevaulter, will also be sent to
Athens if he wants to go, although I
doubt that he will. He has married and
settled down in New Haven, although 1
notice he has been vaulting this Summer
and a few days ago won the vault in a
meet at 12 feet 6 inches."
