Clark Griffith said a whole bookful
when he chirped his Washington spiel.
Also ho made It possible for another
volume or two to be written about
"Who'll be in Cincinnati in 19127"
After the "fox" has been placed In a
coffin and burled, so far as Cincinnati
was concerned, he was resurrected and
within a fortnight it was all decided
that he would again hold the mana
gerial reins for Herrmann. The post
mortem spasm, which led to Griffith's
selection as the 1911 Redleg leader,
was caused by a petition sent to Herr
mann signed by every one of Clark's
1911 crew and the subsequent an
nouncement from the magnate that he
was "undecided" whether to fire Grif
fith. Since Griffith knocked the prophecy
in the head by the declaration that he
would be at the helm of the Washing
ton team next season, a host of men
have bobbed up for the Cincinnati Job.
H waa even hinted that Hugh Jennings
would forsake Detroit for the position.
Then John Ganzel. former major
leaguer, but later an Eastern League
manager, hopped Into daylight as a
Cincinnati possibility. Joe Tinker and
Johnny Evers,' both Cubs, are prom
inently mentioned, along with "Kitty"
Bransfleld and a host of others.

No. 6 Willis P. Salisbury.
WHEN the Pacific Northwestern
League was organized in 1901,
all the clubs maintained as small a list
of players as possible. That year Port
land Issued monthly stipends to but
three pitchers and one of them was
Willis P. Salisbury, a steady and re
"Solly," as he was familiarly called
by the fans, was not of the sensational
order, for he was quiet in his manner
isms and deliberate in his actions
when oocupylng the box. He was not
a great curve-ball pitcher, and neither
did he possess speed above the ordi
nary, yet he was a consistent winner,
and his main stock in trade was a
clear head and fine control.
Both Engle and Glendon were rated
as better pitchers, yet Salisbury fin
ished that season with a winning per
centage almost as niga.
He performed for Portland but one
season, for he was signed by the Phil
adelphia National League team after
having been permitted to become a
free agent, but did not last long In'
the big league. Salisbury was a na
tive of Iowa and Joined one of the
Three-Eye League clubs in 1903, play
ing in that league intermittently un
til 190 when he turned up as a mem
ber of the San Francisco club, in the
Paclflo Coast League.
"Solly" pitched fairly good ball for
San Francisco, but Cal Ewing let him
go In 1907, and he went to Albany, Or.,
where he entered business and fol
lowed baseball as a side issue.

CHARTER CHANGE URGED
Sheridan Proposes to Revise Docu
ment in Near Future.
SHERIDAN, Or., Nov. 6. (Special.)

vision to the city charter is growing.
At a meeting Wednesday the Commer
cial Qub appointed a committee to con
fer with the City Council at its next
meeting Monday night to formulate
definite plans for organizing a chaitcr
committee which will have power to
submit a revised charter to the voters
The matter of a new city charter has
resolved into a faction fight between
the "wet" and "dry" elements and there
promises to be some stirring times un
til the question is settled. At a recent
election a vote on the revision of the
city charter was lost, the principal rea
sons being due to the restrictive liquor
clause in the proposed document.
It is probable that the vote for a
revised city charter will be polled at
the annual city election held in De
cember, as it will take some time to
compile a new charter.
