Casey"! Colts won another from Aber
' an yesterday, nosing out -with a 2 to 1
score, after a hard 32-lnnlng battle. It
was after two were down In the ninth
'that the tying score was shoved across
the pan and again In the 12th two were
down and the bases were as populous as
a desert Isle when a brace of hits came
In quirk succession and won the game.
It was a peppery game all through and
developed into a great pitching contest
I between Kinsella and Most. Both were
on edge and had everything, but In the
ninth inning Moat let Mullin double and
after he had gone to third on an Infield
i out. Most sent a wlerd one to the catcher
which the latter could not reach and
Mullin raced home, safe by a halr-llne
lociaion. Catcher O'Brien made a hard
(Tort to retrieve Most's toss but failed.
Stever began the game for the Cats and
'was In trouble from the start. The first
man up walked, then Breen singled, but
'he next three men went down, all. how
kver, rapping the ball sharply. In the
I second Inning Fournier started with a
bee-line drive straight at: Slever. The
latter attempted to. knock It down and
,in so doing his right hand was split open,
1 so that he had to retire in favor of Most.
Kinsella was in grand form and struck
; out 11 men during the game. Save In the
'fourth Inning he kept the hits well scat
tered and outside of that inning and the
second. Aberdeen never looked dangerous.
The score in the fourth come from a hit
'by Regan, a stolen base and another hit
by Julie Streib. In the second Lejeune
doubled, was sacrificed to third and went
, out in a foolhardy attempt to steal home
on the veteran Annbruster.
Casey Gets- Into Game.
Casey broke Into the game in the ninth
Inning, when he batted for Crocker. It
was while Casey was at bat that the wild
pitch came which gave the required score.
Gotigh also replaced Mullin after that
The game was much better than the
former contests this week and this, the
; fourth consecutive win of the Colts
against Aberdeen, was much better at
tended than the former games. The fans
who Journeyed to Vaughn street were
well repaid for their effort It was a
game full of brilliant baseball, with
' enough spectacular plays to suit the most
sated fan In the crowd. Umpire Frary
drew a little roast for his decisions,
. which seemed all the way through to
favor the home team and the Aberdeen
: players were disposed to feel that Frary
' was giving thorn the worst of it. The
questioned decisions were calling Lejeune
out at home on his steal and Mullin safe
at home in the ninth, when the score was

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19. (Special.)
Portland pinched out a victory on a home-
run that brought three players over the
plate In the eighth this afternoon, after
the score had stood at 1 to 0 in the Seals'
favor from the start of a scrappy game.
In spite of the fact that Catcher Fisher
was fined $10 and sent from the field for
Jawing over a close decision that went
against Portland, and a talk-fest in which
half the Beaver players Joined, seldom
has a finer game been seen on the local
diamond. And with the fans tense with
excitement, Graney's homer fairly lifted
the spectators from their feet, as with it
Portland won its third straight game
from the leaders in the present series.
That home-run, coming as it did when
two Were out, and when even the Beavers
considered if a forlorn hope, took all of
the light out of San Francisco. In the
ninth the Seals fell away to nothing,
and hardly knowing what they were do
ing, gave Portland another tally, that
made the score In its final stage i to 1.
It was a ball game filled with tense
situations, with the Beavers ever sus
picious that they were to be given th
worst of the deal, and with the fans anx
ious for the leaders to break their losing
streak. Outhlt two to one, Browning was
forever in trouble, but the manner in
which he got out of the hole when the
bases were filled and no one out won him
more support than had been given by the
The first and only Seal run came in the
opening Inning, and it looked for a long
time as if it would be good for the game.
The ecrappy period was chiefly confined
to the first part of the third inning. Olson
was out when Speas singled,' Ryan fol
lowing it with another base hit. Speas
tried to make third on the hit, but was
caught on a close play, and waved aside
by McGreevy. Quite evidently the base
runner slid into the ball and not the bag,
but he started a rumpus just the same.
Half the Portland team filed in to add
noise to the protest, but Fisher was the
noisiest of the lot A 210 fine didn't have
any effect and. then he was chased from
MeCredie tried hard to still his catcher.
but the situation was past relieving, and
Murray was forced to work the balance
of the game. , Ote Johnson was also in
clined to scrap, but Was motioned back
to his post by MeCredie. The score:

That Amos B. Strait, of Scappoose, Is

deer were being hunted with dogs and
killed in Columbia, near his former res
"Mr. Strait's complaint is on a par
with those usually seen in the public
prints." said Mr. Stevenson. "Nothing
is known of Mr. Straits woe or of
these violations until long after they
happen, and until Mr. Strait is leaving
for Eastern Oregon, where his Infor

it will be. next to impossible to procure
his attendance as a witness in the
event he should be wanted.
"Mr. Strait, like similar informants,
chooses to publish his discoveries.
There appears nothing to shew that he
acted like any law-lovlng. conscientious
citizen should act It doesn't appear
that he gave his information to any of
ficer of the law, Justice of the Peace,
Sheriff, Deputy Sheriff, Constable,
Deputy Constable or any other peace
officer, all of whom are made ex-of-ficio
game wardens by a special act of

laws are. He says he told the reputed
violators so, and yet it seems Mr. Strait
did not know that it is against the law
for a person to have deer in his posses
sion at this time of the season. It seems
also a little strange that he did not
avail himself of his authority under our
statutes to arrest these men for com
mitting a misdemeanor In his presence.
This he would have had a right to do.
"The proper thing to do is to give
immediate notice to the Game War
den, some of his deputies, or some
other peace officer, charged with game
duties. Then something can be accom
plished. There is a Deputy Game War
den located at Scappoose, but it ap
pears Mr. Strait made no effort to
apprise him of his discovery.
Alarms of this kind are generally
to be taken with a grain of salt al
though this particular Instance may be
true. I know my father has frequently
caused these rumors and reports to
be run down, and almost invariably
found them to be little more than
zephyrs of hot air. Occasionally the
violators, taking advantage of what
everybody was made acquainted with
by published scares, made good their
escape and covered up their crime.
Another phase of Mr. Strait s plaint
is his statement that the Game Warden
Is negligent While conceding that the
game laws are being violated now, as
they always have been and will be,
there is actually less crime of this
order than at any time in years. Nu
merous convictions of deer-killers were
obtained recently, and only a few
weeks ago five persons were heavily
fined in the Game Warden's home
county for this offense.
Those who are quick to condemn a
public official, like the Game and For
estry Warden, every time a violation is
discovered, should bear in mind that
a force of about 20 men is called upon
to patrol 96,000 square miles of terri
tory." ALEXANDER AND HACKETT WIN
