SEATTLE. Wuh. Sept. 17. (Spe
claL) Luck will beat a shotgun and
this phrase comes close to telling1 th
story of the game Seattle won from
Portland today by a score or s to x.
Portland hit Bill James, tho star
pitcher of the league, hard and often,
btnation that produced run luck fied
to tne otner siae oi 1.110 vauip.
It is a cinch that if good fortune
favors Seattle as it has against Victo
ria, and Portland, they will hold
the lead to the finish of the race.
Ma boner Makes Homer.
Tho only run Portland got was a
homer by Mahoney in the fifth, but
they came close to Seattle in number
of hits and their errors were of the
most aggravating kind. The ball
bounded Just right for Seattle and was
too low or high for Portland.
All this, taken into consideration
with the masterly pitching of Bill
James, was more than the Colts could
Burch was knocked down by a foul
tip that hit him on the knee cap, but
he refused to quit and finished the
same In good shape.
Seattle got the lead in the first In
ning after two were out. Nill hit and
then WilBon poled the ball over the
right field fence. In the third three
hits and a pass, taken in connection
with a boot, let over four runs. Seat
tle was never In real danger after that,
although James had to pitch for all he
was worth in every inning, as Portland
was giving the fielders plenty of work.
Colts Lowe Chance at Start.
Seattle really won the game In the
first Inning, when Portland had the
bases full and failed to score, owing
to sensational pitching by James and
(treat plays by Mann, Nlll and Shaw.

These bids include two pitchers from
the Western League clubs untouched

and Higginbotham would make a won
derful nucleus around which to build
my 1913 pitching staff," said McCredie
last night. "Just think where we would
be if I had two more pitchers like
them. Both have won 60 per cent of
their games. I expected to lose either
Klawitter. Doane or Fitzgerald.
Mac declares he was misquoted in
San Francisco when the newspaper
men had him picking Oakland to win.
He says it's still a tossup between the

A battle Is due soon over the draft
ing of umpires. The new rule regard
ing arbitrators was injected into base
ball law at the last National Associa
tion meeting. The j-ule provides for
the purchase d"r draft of umpires by
the minor leaguers, but' not for the
payment of money for men taken up
by the majors. George Hildebrand has
accepted an offer to umpire in the
American League, but President Baum,
of the Coast League, is averse to let
ting him go and then turning round
and buying a man from a B league.
He holds that the majors never rati
fied the agreement and that therefore
it is void.

CITY LOSES APPEAL CASES
Judge Gantenbein Orders Dismissal
for Lack of Evidence.
Because the city could not prove 'the
ownership of the store other than by a
clerk who sold the "booze," and be
cause he believed the Jury would re
turn a verdict in favor of the defend
ant anyway, Circuit Judge Gantenbein
yesterday ordered an Instructed verdict
of not guilty In the case of the city
against C. E. Bogue, an East Side drug
gist accused of selling liquor without
a license. .... . .
The court's action was based on the
rule of law that the unsupported evi
dence of an accomplice Is not suffl- -cient
to establish a fact. The case was
an appeal from the Municipal Court,
where Bogue had been fined $100.
Because of the absence of Sergeant
Klenlen, of the Police Department, the
prosecution's most Important witness,
the city was not able to make much of
a showing against Ida Miller, convicted
of vagrancy in Municipal Court and
who had appealed. Judge Gantenbein
learned that she had been in the city
for eight years and had never been,
arrested or accused of crime before,
and he ordered the case dismissed in
order to save further trouble.
