President Allmn T. Baum. J. Cal Ew

Walter McCredle. of Portland, returned
today a the advance guard of the
Coast League magnates who attended
the adjourned annual meeting. In Los
Angeles. President Paum confirmed
the selection of a new official ball, one
that will be lacking the cork center
of the Fpaldlng ball, but said that he
had not as yet closed with George
Wheeler for an umpire s Job.
Instead, he had a talk with Wheeler,
and told the newspaper boys that In all
probability bs would give the Is An
f eles player a chance to make good.
Flawey Already Slewed.
Ed Finney, one of the umpires last
year. signed his contract while Baum
was In the South. Finney put In an
appearance at baseball headquarters
escorted by a pair of crutches It ap
pears that he waa In bathing at one of
the beaches and cut bis foot on a piece
of glass. He cut one of the arteries,
and really was In a dangerous condition
for a time. Baum says that It seemed
rather extraordinary to be atgntng as
an umpire a man who has to use
crutches, but Finney will be all right
In a few days at the most.

Brief Sporting Notes. '
Carl Zamlock, former Seal heaver,
and last season with Sacramento, has
signed a contract to play with Cliff
Blankenshlp at Missoula In the Union
Association. Spokane was supposed to
have gobbled up the youngster.
The failure of Ralph Frary to land a
Job with the National League as an um
pire caused considerable surprise In
Portland today, as Spokane oWpatcnes
told of his signing a few days ago.
Frary originally turned down the
Northwestern and went to tno Union
League because of the stipulation In
the contract that he be allowed to Jour
ney eastward at the bid of President
Lynch. Lynch's list of appointees does
not contain Frary's name, but the Na
tional bead may be waiting to see how
his new men turn out.

Mount Scott. ....
O.-W. R. & N.
Out on the Mount Scott ground at
Tremont yesterday morning the Inde
pendents failed by three goals to four
in their attempt to. reach Mount Scott
at the head of the Oregon League, but
only after a magnificent struggle with
half the interest crowded into the last
five minutes of the game.
The homesters started downhill in a
confident manner, with the visitors
rather cramped in their movements on
the narrow ground, persistent work
among the forwards resulting in a goal
some 10 minutes after the start. Three
more goals came Mount Scott's way at
regular Intel . als, and they looked like
they wore piling up a big score when
the Independents broke through,
charged down the back's kick, and re
duced the lead Just before half-time.
With thi goal as an encouragement
and with the advantage of the "slope,
the Independents gradually had mora
of the game, so that when a second,
but rather lucky goal accrued the team
began to have hopes of drawing level.
These hopes were further strengthened
when Grier notched a third and with
Mount Scott failing to Increase the
lead, excitement among the spectators
The home defense, however, held out
till the final whistle blew, leaving
Mount Scott strongly entrenched at the

The halves played a good game.
With a more energetic pivot the for

though both cleared well.
In the other game North Bank de
feated the O.-W. R. & N. on the Co

sided affair, for the losers were two
men short all the time. Voss In goal

not be blamed for any of the shots that
