BROTHER WANTS RANCHER
After Passing Day In Portland Jfoted
Pitcher Leaves for Elgin to Visit
Relative, Owner of Big Ranch.
Young Yonng at 43.
"Hello Cy. what are you ' doinfr out
here-?" was the greeting hurled by
Charley Armbruster at a big, handsome
looking, well-dressed man at the corner
of Sixth and Washington streets about 3
o'clock yesterday afternoon, and in that
manner Denton T. Young, the most
noted of all baseball players, was Intro
duced to Portland.
"Why, If it ain't 'Buster" Tm dippy."
replied Young, who arrived in Portland
on the Shasta Limited yesterday, and,
after registering at the Hotel - Portland,
hastened to look up Fielder Jones, 'Wal
ter MoCredie or some of the other mem
bers of the baseball fraternity, and when
he met "Buster," who formerly was his
battery partner with the Boston Ameri
can League team, he was soon escorted
to McCredie's billiard emporium where a
reunion was held.
While enjoying a talk with McCredie
and the other members of the Portland
baebaU colony. Young facetiously re
marked that he was seriously thinking of
giving the ex-manager of the Chicago
American League Club a run for the
timber baron." honors of Oregon.
Oregon Farmer May Be restiny.
"I'm on my way to Elgin, Or., wher
ever that Is," said Cy with a smile.
"You see I have a brother there who
thinks Tm about 'all in' as a pitcher and
he wants to make a rancher out of me,
Just as Fielder's brother seems to have
done with him. I don't know what kind
of a country he is located in, but I guess
it mu6t be a good one, else he would not
toe so anxious to have me Inspect some
land he has picked out for me to buy.
Seriously, fellows, I may really become
on Oregon larmer yet. for if this country
is good enough for Jones, who comes
from Shinglehouse. Pa., it ought to be
good enough for E. T. Young, of Olean,
111., and besides the climate here seems
to ' agree with ' 'Buster' and old 'Gagle
Eye' McCredie. .both of whom seem
healthy and pro::, t'rous."
Somebody Bpruns the retirement "ru
mor" on "Cy," and he very promptly
fled, for he doesn't like to discuss his
baseball career. Young asserted. how
ever, that when he retired he would
make no . announcement, but i..mply
cut loose and quit the game.
When this remarkable player reports to
the Cleveland Baseball Club next month,
he will round out the twentieth time he
has annually reported for duty on the
"Cy" Young is 48 years of age, but
looks about 35. He commenced his base
ball career with the Canton, Ohio, club
of the Tri-State League in the Spring of
18i0. He had not completed that season
when he was sent to the Cleveland Club,
then in the National League. He re
mained with Cleveland until 1898 when
he was transferred to St. Louis, and from
that club he went to the Boston Ameri
can League team in 1901, and remained
with the "Red Sox" until last year, when
Cleveland regained his services.
Twenty years as a professional ball
player seems to have agreed with the
veteran, for he is a man possessed of
a " wonderful physique. Cy Young
claims that he is not much heavier now
than when he started in 20 years ago.
He calmly announces that he abstains
from nothing in the line of refresh
ments that he desires, but he believes
in moderation and his baseball record
proves him to be the marvel of the
Veteran Jfever Too Ola to Play Ball.
"One never gets too old to play base
ball," says Young. When asked what
he thought of Christy MatthewsonTs
book, in which he is being made the
hero of one of the New York pitcher's
literary effusions. Young refused to
commit himself, nor would he delv
Into his ..past to tell the story of how
he struggled at the beginning of his
"I have not noticed much difference
in the game In the 19 years I have
played it," said Young, growing remin
iscent. We have the same curves and
the same delivery used when I started,
and the only new method of pitching is
the spit ball, and that is fast falling
into disuse. I never used the spitter
myself, for I find other methods just as
effective, and I think it spoils a pitcher
in the long run. It ought to be abol
ished altogether, but I think it will run
out of popufarfcy without legislation."
With Billy Alvord. Fielder Jones and
Billy Sullivan interested financially in
Oregon properties, and the possibility
of Cy Young investing here. Oregon
seems likely to prove the haven and
fortune of- many more of the diamond
stars of the country. Fielder Jones
says they cant do any better elsewhere,
and Cy Young Is inclined to believe
him. Young left last night for Elijln,
Or., where he will remain several days
with his brother, and about March 1 he
will go to Hot Springs, Ark., where he
will commence training for the open
ing of the American League season in

this remark, at 10:30 o'clock this morn

pointing toward the West.
The last day of January Coffroth was
at a little wine supper in London and
the question of making quick time be

"I can ' make the trip in eight,"

Corri, as he reached for his check-book.

That settled it. and the following
morning" Coffroth started and caught his
boat at Liverpool, making good time into
New York and hustling right on West,
he stopped over part of a day in Chicago
and reached here this morning. But he
was delayed by his train having to wait
two and one-half hours for a connection
coming off the Milwaukee.
Train One Hour Late.
Later, at Sidney, the train was one
hour late, and Union Pacific officials say
that this will be mader up this side of
Ogden and that Coffroth will reach San
FranciBco early Tuesday night.
Coffroth says the Jeffries-Johnson fight
will be pulled off in San Francisco,", but
he refuses to pick the winner. "When in
England and since reaching this side
he has matched Bailing Nelson and
Freddie Welch for a date early in April
and Sam Langford and Stanley Ketchel
