ROOT WANTS TO MANAGE "BTJD"
Donald Kef uses $25,000 for Con
tract With Anderson.
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 31. (Special.)
Jack Root created quite a sensation
In" local sporting circles today by of
fering Dick Donald, manager of "Bud'
Anderson. S25.000 In cold cash for his
contract on the lightweight contender.
Donald added to the excitement by re
fusing the offer.
In these perilous times, when tne
boutlng game is hanging by a thread,
with a sharp legislative knife directed
at that thread, such an offer seems all
out of proportion, and the fans were
slow to believe it was anything more
than a press agent yarn.
Root was in deadly earnest, however.
He saw Anderson dispose of Sammy
Trott a week ago and got a hankering
for his contract then and there. He
had been talking it over with Donald
ever since, making offers and raising
them, until this morning, when he met
Donald, he raised the ante to $25,000.
Donald was staggered a bit and wob
bled mentally for a few seconds, but
finally turned it down.

SPORTSMEN SHOW FIGHT
SHVATE BILL SO. 53 CAUSE OF
Provision for Confiscation or Death
of Canines Found Hunting Game
Rouses Ire of Dog Fanciers.
A bitter fight is to be waged by Port
land sportsmen against a bill intro
duced In the State Senate by Senator
Hosklns, making It unlawful to hunt
game birds with dogs and prescribing
confiscation and even the death pen
alty for all canines found thus en
gaged. The bill. No. BS. was referred to
the committee on game January 16 and
will come up for public dlsousslon be
fore a joint committee of the Senate
and House Monday night at 8 o'clock.
"This bill Is unsportsmanlike and
vicious, to say the least," declared W.
E. Carl on. a local sportsman, last night.
"Every true sportsman will lend his
efforts to defeat any bill calling for
the killing of a hunting dog.
"We have a closed season and a bag
limit for the protection of game birds
If the season is too long it should be
shortened. If the bag limit Is too
great it should be reduced. If game
birds should not be killed there should
be a closed season at all times. We
therefore have to assume that the au
thor bf this bill does not like dogs and
objects to others owning any.
"I venture to say that more wounded
birds will be left to die in the field
without the aid of a dog In retrieving
them than will be killed by the aid of
a.og in hunting them. That feature
which calls for the Killing oi tne aog
is most obnoxious of all. Think how
badly the average sportsman would
feel Bhould his dog be killed while In
nocently pursuing his natural Instincts.
'Furthermore, unreasonable laws are
the cause of many violations and a
burden is placed on the officers in try.
ing to enforce them."

"Freeze" Is Eliminated From
CLUBS ADOPT NEW STYLE
National Association Falls to Make
Regulation Penalizing "Safety"
Players, but Adopts Reso
lution Condemning It-
The "freeze" has been eliminated
from amateur billiards. Technically
there are no such thing as "frozen"
balls In amateur contests hereafter, for
the National Association of Amateur
Billiard Players, at a meeting at New
York on January 10, ruled that the
referee shall separate the frozen
balls bv a thin card.
This departure, which means so
much to that section of billiard Is ta
styled "nursers," will be introduced into
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club
Immediately, according to W. C Dunl-
way, chairman of the Winged "M" bil
liard committee, who received word
yesterday regarding the change.
Under the style of play now In vogue,
a player "banks" when the balls are
frozen, attempts a "masse," striking
the ball not "frozen" first, or calls for
a re-snottlnz of the three bans.
The new style permits of the re-spotting
and the bank," but also allows the
nnn ball to strike the "frozen" ball
first, or a "masse," or the moving of
the cue ball to eliminate tne -ireeze,
which makes direct "masses easy, as
well as the "force follow."
The ruling of the organization win
be adopted In every club In the coun
try, while the majority of public rooms
are expected to follow suit.
The convention failed to make a rule
penalizing "safety" players, but adopted
a resolution condemning It.
Mr. Duniway takes the stand that the
fault nearly always lies with the play
ers when balls are "frozen" on a good
table, and that the man whose turn It
is to shoot following a "freeze" should
hn aMaH hv the miles.
"This new rule was shoved through
hv the nurse nlavers. says Mr. Duni
way, "and means that many of the
amateurs who are now indifferent per
formers will develop Into champions,

The Multnomah Club basketball five
will leave today for Corvallls, where it

There is considerable talk of a tour
to California, but no definite plans have
been made. Manasrer Mackle has writ

Sain, superintendent and promoter
of tne American cuua as . io.i
pany of New York, which is exploit
ing the Summer and Albert lakes in
Southern Oregon, was in the city to
day conferring with the State Land
The company Is leasing the lanes of
the State of Oregon and is evaporating
the water to obtain the valuable salta
which the lakes contain. The com
pany has already started work on the
preliminaries, but has experienced con
siderable difficulty on account of the
weather. This delay has postponed
the gathering of the salts beyond the
four months' time prescribed by the
land board In its lease, and it Is in
connection with this matter that Mr.
Sain Is at the Capitol.
To compensate for this delay, the
company is making an agreement with
the Board, whereby It will relinquish
its claim on the shore lands, which
were the bone of contention between
the. Governor and Attorney-General
These shore lands will be turned
back by the state to the Federal Gov
ernment and the state school land fund
will be enriched by about 33,000. This
removes the cause of dispute between
Governor West and Attorney-General
Crawford. The Attorney - General
claimed that the state had acted un
wisely in making these selections, as
the land was not valuable enough for
lieu land selections.
The developing company is con
structing long dikes, cutting off vari
ous shallow parts of the lakes, and
will leave the water In these ponds to
evaporate naturally. The salts will
then be collected from the dry lake
bed. The company is under contract
to produce 100.000 tons of these sails
annually. The Pacific Coast market.
Including- shipments to the Far East,
consumes about 150,000 tons annually.
The soda obtained is used largely In
paper pulp and glass manufacture. .
