SANTA MARIA. Cal.,. March 10.
(Special.) This morning was " quite
fogrsyv and Manager McCredle there
Core announced there would be no
workout until afternoon, which was
bright and clear, and the team went
throug-h signal practice for the first
time since arriving here. Hitherto, it
bas teen customary to work out morn
ings, as well as afternoons, but as soon
as the late arrivals get hardened and
the team hits the road on the Junketing
tour McCredle will allow the players to
rest during the forenoon.
"Tomorrow afternoon the Regulars
and the Tannigans will play another
game, while on Saturday comes the big
game between the Irish and the Dutch.
The latter contest has excited a great
deal of comment among -the baseball
fans here, and an effort Is being made
to have Nick Covarrublas, who imper
sonated Don Gaspar de PortoTa, at the
Portola Festival at San Francisco,
assist Fred Lewis in umpiring.
;. Garber Shows Up Well.
"Bert Garber has satisfied McCredle
hat he did not fall off the water
wason, ana xne iau manager nas tatcen
bira into the fold again. Garber was
totally worn out by his ten days' trip
noon, according to Trainer Cornell, who
investigated the matter.
The Texas pitcher showed great form
today and his batting made quite a hit
with McCredle. Max Hall is also show
ing up well, as is Eugene Krapp and
Billy Steen. This makes.it more diffi
cult than ever for McCredle to decide
on his pitching corps.
Only a few more days of training at
this camp remain, after which the Port
land squad will depart on the first ex
tensive ante-season tour made by any
club in the circuit since its organiza
tion eight years ago.- .
Leaving - Santa Maria. Immediately
after the game with the Chicago White
Sox, -next Monday, McCredle's huskies
will hook un with Comlskey's warriors
at San Luis Obispo on Tuesday. March

March .16.' The following day Manager
Mac ajwl his tribe hit San Jose and
play .the-State League club a series of
three games and possibly four. Be
cause of poor train- service it is pos
sible that the White Sox game here or
at San Luis Obispo may have to be
McCredle Makes Money.
The fans of Santa Maria have patron
ized the games -between the Santa
Maria -club and Portland, as well as
the game last Saturday between Mc
Credle's Regulars and Yannigans. so
liberally that the tall "manager has re
ceived more money for the three games
played here than he did for the entire
month of - play last year at San -Luis
Obispo. He had not expected to pay
more-than half his expenses out of the
receipts here, but he now stands an
excellent chance of breaking better
than even. His games with San Jose,
Fresno and at the other one-day stops,
not to mention the White Sox games,
should put him in San Francisco with
a litle coin to the good as the result of
the training trip. " .
McCredie.. has assembled the finest
collection of pitchers " he. has ever had
on a training trip. "-The big fellows
Billy Steen, Ben Kralzberg-.. Dan Ryan.
Jack Garbr, Phil Lezie and Ernest
Krapp, are so good that McCredie is
greatly - pleased. Besides he has the
old reliables. Jesse Garrett. Howard

pitching berths, for the southpaw has
come back in such a pronounced man

proclaim him the star left-hander of
the Pacific Coast League this coming
season, as he was in 1907.
Lefttouts his head off every day. He seems
to nave acquirea a uncn or ginger tnis
season, and Casey attributes it to his
habit of reclining under the- pepper trees
lining the streets here.
Off the ball field Ben Kratsberg is
one of the most silent and retiring fel
lows imaginable, but let him don a uni
form and have a chance- to pitch or chase
flies and he will make more noise than
Happicus Hogan and Bill Devereaux com
bined. Gus Fisher is all to the good this sea
eon. He is ambitious to get a chance
among the big leaguers and nays if he
is not hooked by one of the big brush
clubs this Fall it will not be his fault, or
that of his playing.
Joe Smith Is acquiring the title of
"Speed Marvel" in the Portland camp
rapidly. No other member of the squad
is as speedy in picking up and toesing
the sphere as the former Enid third base
man. Smith has the knack of playing the
ball in such a manner that he fields and
throws with the same motion.
When Casey handled the regulars
against the Yannigans last week he
wanted McCredie to let him use Charley
Hartman as a pitcher, but Mac was too
wise. The Yannigans lineup comprised
seven left-handed batters who would
have been easy for Hartman.
"Joe Smith, the new inflelder. is some
thing of a piano player. He accompanies
a quartet composed of Casey, Guyn, Per- I
