The Seal owners deny that there is

Manager Reidy is still rusticating at
Cleveland: that he has not signed a
solitary plaver since he said his good

scored him heavily within recent date
for derelection of duty.
Ordinarily a manager has a great
deal to say concerning the new play

That should represent 25 per cent of
the value of any manager to his boss.

best known to himself, hasn't even

owners. A Cleveland dispatch says
he has Just recovered from an at

Howard was secured from the
American Association in midseason last
year for first-base duty. He finished
like a Honus Wagner, batting .358 in
98 games. Del is a brother of Ivan

Five Pacrflc Northwestern athletes
are chosen by Peter Gearhardt, dean
of all Coast track and cinder expo
nents, as the most remarkable all

field athletes In their respective
. The San Francisco veteran, who has
been spending the week in Portland
on a business mission, picks Forrest
Smithson, of the Multnomah Club, as
the greatest high hurdler ever devel
oped In the West; McClure, of the Uni
versity of Oregon, as the greatest miler;
designates Dan Kelly, of Multnomah,
as the premier broad Jumper, and Ed-
mundson, of Seattle, as the one best
bet over the 880-yard course. In ad
dition, he gives Brailey Gish, of the
Seattle Athletic Club, equal honors
with Wyman, of Stanford, as the fast
est quarter-miler in the annals of sport
on this side of the Rocky Mountains.
Gearhardt has represented the Olym
pic Club on the cinder path for 17
years. He has won every 220-yard
Coast championship event ever run and
has been beaten only once In the 100
dash for the Coast title. Despite his
years, .the veteran was chosen a mem
ber of the American Olympic team last
Summer. In the farewell meet at New
York he finished second to Cral In
the century, but was unfortunate in
being drawn In the same heat with
the sensational negro. Drew, at Stock
holm, and was nosed out of the flnvls.

the 220 dash. Gearhardt Is present

both the short distances at the Astoria

picked as the greatest Western half-
mller, won the National championship
at the Seattle fair In 1909, but fell Just

GAY LOMBARD DESCRIBES HIS
PLAN OF GOVERNMENT.
Candidate for Mayor, ir Elected,
Will Conduct Business Ad
ministration, He Says.
If Gay Lombard is elected Mayor of
Portland next June, for which office he
is now campaigning, there will be no
political rewards, such as appoint
ments to high positions In the public
service, whether salaried or unsalaried,
according to a statement made by him
yesterday. He declares he will Inaug
urate an absolutely new system of con
ducting the municipal business.
"I have devoted much time and study
to the conduct of municipal affairs,"
said Mr. Lombard, "and I find no good
reason whv sound business methods
may not be successfully applied to the
public business. I will. If nominatea
and elected to that high office, faith
fully apply to their business the same
energy and strict attention to details
that I have applied to my own private
"Having determined that the city's
business can well be conducted along
sound lines of good business policy, I
shall, during my campaign, pledge my
self to make no appointments to pay
political debts should I be cnosen By
the people of this city as their chief
executive, I shall select only such men
and women as have intimate knowledge
of the positions to which I shall ap
point them. For example, if I am
elected Mayor, I will appoint to the
police committee of the Executive Board
three men who are familiar with police
"I steadfastly believe It is not a
dream, but, that if I am elected and
annlv this policy to everything I do
for the city It will prove to be the best
thing for the city and the people who
provide the funds for conducting city
"I favored commission government
two years ago and still favor It; I snail
do whatever I can to bring It to pass,
but I am mindful, after all, that no
matter 'what form of government we
have, we must depend upon the aver
age man to fill the public places and
we must depend upon their ability and
faithfulness in the discharge of their
obligations to the public."
