Patsy O'Rourke. second baseman, and
Tacon" Van Buren, outfielder.
O'Rourke manasred the club In 1 1 1 1
and the first half of 1512. when his
failure to enforce discipline ai:d his
vtrenuosity on the playing field, re
sulted in his summary decapitation.
Van Buren then got the job. Van is
one of the most likeable fellows In
the league, but, as a manager, the
veteran was about as useful as buttons
on the tail of a coat.
Consequently the new owner of the
Senators craspfd at the opportunity to

jnff. slipped over a prood thing- on San
Francisco, which could have used Wol
verton mighty ndva ntaeeously.
Whether or not Wolverton is to du
plicate his Oakland first division build

onstrate, but the lavish manner in
which he is raiding the Kastern vine
yards for talent is making more than
one (-oast magnate sit up and scowl at
mention of Atkins. At any rate no
body expects, any friction between the
silver-topped Harry and the erstwhile
managerial aspirants, for Wolverton

Wolverton has signed eight or nine

Jactc Bliss, former Cardinal, will
greatly bolster the Senators back stop

BOXER CHATS CF HIS RISE

of Monry for Hard Scrap.
Ad Wolgast. ex-lightweight boxing
champion, and W. 11. Parrlsh, of Grand
Rapids. Mich., the men who gave the
Cadillac youth hiy first ring chance,
paid tribute to the memory of Jack
Dempsey, famous middleweight of two
decades ago, yesterday afternoon. The
duo, accompanied by friends and rela
tives, visited Dempsey's grave in Mount
Calvary Cemetery, and laid an ever
green wreath on the spot.
Both Wolgast and Parrish are keen
admirers of the old-time bare-knuckle
fighter and for 15 years it has been
the ambition of Mr. Parrish to gaze
upon the spot where lies the body of
the great ringster. The Grand Kapids
man realized his hope yesterday after
noon, gazing; upon the marble slab
which marks the resting place of the

John L. Sullivan when the heavyweight
was in his prime.
F.I Kb t Visit Grave.
Those who composed the party to
Mount Calvary Cemetery were: Ad
Wolgast and wife, W. H. Parrish and
wife, M. B. Davis and wife, of Portland
Jack King and James II. Cassell.
Wolgast and Parrish are having the
time of their lives chatting over the
days when Ad considered a $15 purse
too much money for a fighter, and rated
the $2 he received for his first mill
"I was running a saloon back In
Cadillac when WolcasL then a bare
footed youngster, began to bother me,
insisting that he have a chance to

ing his nrst experiences with the ex
lichtweight champ. "I was looking
after the athletic end of the Elk pro
grammes in those dnys and refereeing
the four-round bouts. I sent the little
Dutchman against a boy named Creely.
and while no decision was given, Creely
hai the better of the scrap.
"Wolgast's style, with that constant
covering up to avoid punishment, did
not make a hit with me and I tried to
dissuade him from fighting further.
But h? was ambitious and T then got
him a fight up at Petoskey, Mich., meet

colored lad, who" outweighed him ten
pounds. In seven rounds, but still
thought little of him.

"He kept after me so much that
decided to have him get a good licking
to cure his ambition, so advised him to
go to Grand Kapids to fight Young
Nelson. Imagine my surprise when he
knocked out Nelson in three rounds.
After that there was no stopping him.
Now I think that Ad is the best light
weight in the world.
Parrish tells an amusing story of the
early struggles of the 24-year-old lad
who counts his wealth in six figures.
When Ad left Cadillac for Milwaukee
he "swiped" a white bulldog belonging
to Parrish. The canine was a favorite
with the trainer of the Parrish string
of horses and he voted to have the
scrapper arrested for the theft. Ad
afterwards confessed that he lived for
a month off dog sales. When he was
hard up he would sell the animal for
$2 and then sell It to another party
when the bun ran away and found its
way bacsc to Ad s neaoquarters.
Wolgast and Jack King leave early

keeping their destination a secret. The
pair may be gone two days.
A trip to Cuba is the latest plan of
the conqueror of Battling Nelson. The
Wolgasts practically have decided to
cancel their trip to Cadillac. Midl
and leave for New Orleans within
week. They wish to evade the rigors
of the Michigan Winter and both are
keen to take a trip through the South,
then to Cuba, with the return to Cadil

of the proposition that causes Wash
ington to hesitate is that Washington
bring a' Japanese team from Meijl Col

antee. Manager Horr says that he will take
the matter up with the Seattle Cham
ber of Commerce and see if any means
can be devised so that the offer can
be accepted and the money raised. Se
attle does not take to college baseball,
so Washington could not make more
than $500 in any series with any col
lege. The baseball men are enthusi
astic about taking a trip to Japan, but
they consider the chances slim of such
a trip being made. Two years ago
Waseda College of Japan made
similar offer to the university, but It
was laughed at because or the exces
sive amount of the guarantee demanded.
If Washington accepts the offer the
clause about bringing a Japanese team

The rock upon which the Western

Whatever financial rakeoff Jenkins
gets, he secures in the couple of

the annual tourneys. Vancouver doesn't
relish the idea of paying Jenkins about
