Martinoni Pitches Sensational
Game for Portland North
western Team.
March 27th
Onljr in Ninth Are Big JLeayuers Able
to Score Eastley in Trim and
Bancroft and Mahoney Star.
1500 Fans See Game.
SANTA ROSA. Cal., March 2. (Spe
cial.) Nick Williams' Portland North
western U-aguers covered themselves
with Klory today by defeating the Chi
eatro Americans sutiad No. 2 In a Ben
national S-to-l pamf. Martinoni, the
lunky lad who broke in with Oakland

for the Class B boys, and they might
just as well have been Mathewson and
Walter Johnson, for they held the
tjitKhty sluicR-ers. Fourier. Bodie and
others, to four scattered nits.
- Southpaw Russell also twirled mas
terly ball for the Chicaffoans. crimping
Hie Colls to four hLngles. but tbe fort
land youngsters were tit enough to in
ject their hits at psychological mo
ments when hits meant runs.
Nearly 1500 wild and excited - fans
oheertd the Colts from the aide lines
for earn spectacular play, redeeming
Ui numerous errors, which were due
lamely to the uneven surface of the
Baa croft aarf Makoser Star.
Bancroft, on third, and Mahoney, in
rh outfield for Williams, performed
sensationally, while Fournier and Syl
vester pulled circus catches unheard of.
It was a gala day in Santa Rosa, one
that will be long remembered. Not in
15 years has a major league club ap
peared in Luther Burbank's town and
to show their appreciation of the visit
the merchants barred their doors,
dressed their clerks, the schools closed
for the afternoon and even the under
taker took a day off.
Bespeckled Martinoni is tonight the
hero of the hour. The Portland pitcher
twirled the seven innings and pitched,
perhaps, the greatest game of his ca
reer, with Bliss, another young recruit,
receiving in stellar fashion. Martinoni
was touched for only two safe bits in
his occupancy and one of these was a
scratch by Bodle that plunked, sown
between Kid Mohler and Mahoney.
Mighty Foamier Failed Thrice.
Three timea the migljty Fournier
came up, only to walk back to the
bench after puny flies. Five men, Ber
ber. Davy Jones, Kernan, Sylvester and
Billy Sullivan, were disposed of via
the strike-out route.
- Martinoni had "everything" and
should be a corking good pitcher for
the Volts this year. Eastley, too,
finished In grand form.
The Colts scored first in the fifth in
ning after both aides had threatened
innumerable time?. An error by Rus
sell in dropping a throw at first, a sacri
fice by young Walters and a wild pitch
put Coltrin on third and he scored on
a long sacrifice fly by Bliss.
Two more runs were' crammed In by
the fighting, slashing youngsters in the
seventh inning on errors ' by Sylvester
and Kernan and Bliss' terrific triple
into deep center field. Not satisfied
with this lead, Bancroft and Mohler
sent out - screaming doubles in the
eighth inning, Bancroft scoring on
Mohler's drive and Mohler on an error
and a sacrifice by Mahoney.
Ktraia Seorea fa Ninth.
An error put Kernan on the bags
for the Sox in the ninth Inning and
after a single by Sylvester things
looked ominous. Eastley then fanned
Sullivan, making two outs, and al
though Russell sent Kernan in by a
single to center. Jones proved an easy
out to right field and the game was
Several of Nick Williams' so-called
regulars were not in the game as they
are not yet in shape, but the youngsters
looked good enough for any class AA
League. In view of the fact that the
Sox have been whipping Venice, Los
Angeles. Oaklnnd and San Francisco
with apparent ease, the Portland North
western, victory Is. Indeed, a feather in
their caps.
Williams had anticipated a bad beat
as the Sox have been training for more
than a month and are In perfect trim.
Freak Play Pulled.
Bancroft manipulated one of the
freakiest plays imaginable in the
fourth inninir when he tagged both
Bodie and Zekler at third base with
one fell pwoop of the wrist and saved
his club from a dangerous predicament.
Bodie had been caught between third
and home ami Zeitler. coming up from
stecond. Mood on the bag until Bodie
was almort back to him, then, uncertain
what to do. he suddenly evacuated and
ran back tt the keystone sack, but too
late. Bancroft caught the ball from
Bliss, tagged Bodie and quick as a
flash whirled and got Zeider. It was
a peculiar and quickwitted double play.
The Sox walloped the San Francisco
Seals yesterday. 4 to 1. se they little
expect ed the warm welcome accorded
them. They returned to Boy's Sprlna-s
t ntght a very dejected and disgruntled
outfit. The score:

l;i-pound Hills. Brooklyn. Club,
vs. Larln. Arista Club.
14S-pound Parslow. Multnomah
Club. vs. Hyberir. Brooklyn Club.
116-pound Belmont, Multnomah
Clubv vs. Hewitt, Columbus Club.
Eight bouts, with 14 rounds of mitt-
wielding guaranteed, and 32 rounds, or
minutes of the ring sport, possible,
is the programme for the Multnomah
Club-Olympic Club boxing carnival in
the Winged "M" gym tomorrow night.
Frank Harraar, the Multnomah ciuu
matchmaker, submitted his list of
bouts last night, the bill containing
five special numbers in addition to the
trio of stellar inter-club events.
Of course, as the first appearance ot
the crack San Francisco boxers in
Portland in several years, and one of
them a Coast champion and the other
two fltle-holders among the miltmen
of the California metropolis, interest
is centered in the three feature bouts
of the programme.. Malone. who meets
Thorsness. Is the best 125-pound box
er on the Pacific Coast, or at least
was acclaimed such when he won first
place In the Los Angeles Coast tour
ney of last Winter. Jansen is the
former 115-pound champion of San
Francisco who has graduated into the
12upound class, while Noonan is the
lightweight veteran who has few los
ing marks agalnst'hls record.
Opposed to Malone is Thorsness, one
of the novice members of Tommy
Tracey's squad, but a boy of much
promise. The way he disposed of Elli
son, the Albina lad, at the Columbus
Club card Monday night, gives htm a
splendid fighting chance against the
Coast champion. Knowlton is boxing
better than ever before. He is strong,
tough and willing, and possesses a
pum'h which Is not to be despised by
Noonan. Powers tackles, a mighty
clever boy in Jensen, but the Mult
nomah hoy Is not afraid to exchange
punches with the San Franciscan.
The preliminaries, or special bouts,
look promising, with the Belmont
Hewitt affair the clever number and
the others flam-bang scraps which de
light the average tan. Three Columbus
Club, three Multnomah Club, three
Brooklyn club and two Arleta Club
boys will appear in the five specials.
The offivils of the programme:
Jack Grant. Omar Dranga. referees:
Joe Teal, Tom Roberts, judges: George
L. Parker, timekeeper; Dudley Clarke,
Texas Ix-agrue Catcher Available In
Kxrliange for Barcta.
Rlgrs. a catcher with Houston of
the Texas Leagrue. is the latest catcher
available to Nick Williams, manager of
the Portland Colts. The Houston club,
which covets Burch. the recalcitrant
Colt backstop, offers Riggs in exchange
for the holdout.
Riggs is boosted as one of the most
promising receivers In the minors, with
a great arm, good head, and slugging
ability par excellence. However, his
performances do not appear in the
record books, at least that section rela
tive to Texas and adjoining circuits, so
It is not likely that transportation will
be telerraphed to the would-be Colt.
Burch was nothing more than a fair
catcher with the Colts, so McCredle
argue that Riggs is not a world
beater. However. It's up to Nick." says the
"Judge." "If he wants to make the
trade ail well and good. It doesn't look
like we'll get any money out of Burch,
- $ci
so a trade of some kind might be the
beat way out of the trouble."
Williams has Harris, Bliss and Mur
ray as catchers, with Loan or Rlordan
due from the Beavers.
The Portland Baseball Boosters' Club
will be called to order at a luncheon
meeting at the Portland Hotel at 12:15
o'clock tomorrow afternoon. The call.
Issued for Thursday, has been post
poned a day on account of the Theatri
cal managers' parade.
Ex-Sheriff "Bob" Stevens, president
of the "Beavercolt" boosters, will pre
side at the meeting, with all of his di
rectors and committee chairman. Ad
ditional committees will be named and
the work of preparing for the April 16
Pacific Coast League opening In Port
land will commence
Ennon Callff. or Ernie Califf. as he
was known when performing valorous
ly on the mound for the Portland Bea
vers, is confident that he will make
good with the Colts this season. Califf
is nearly SO years old and has been
out of the game for several years, but
has been working out at Oregon City
and Is going to take one more whirl at
the pastime.
Warning Is Given Tliat This City
May Lose Big Championship
Tournament in 1914.
Unless Portland bowlers awaken to
the situation within the next few days,
not only will this city be not repre
sented at the Vancouver, B. C, North
west tourney of April 7-13. but Port
land will not secure the 1914 tourna
ment of the new alley organization.
With the date for the closing of en
tries to tbe Northwest competition only
four dqys off, not one Portland team
has filed entry blanks for the meet.
and only one man. Tom O'Donnell, of
the Meier & Frank quintet, seems to
be taking an active interest in the
gathering which means so much to
Northwest bowlers.
"We can't send one team from Port
land unless by public subscription."
saya O'Donnell. who plans to have a
subscription list circulated about town
during the next few days.
True, the money won in tne state
tourney will help, but the prizes are
not large enough to send the winners,
particularly in the five-man team
event, to Vancouver."
O'Donnell has received word irom
Mike Dovle. manager of the Reliance
alleys in Vancouver, that the Canadians
are boosting for Portland to secure
the next meeting of the bowlers. How
ever. Seattle and Spokane will be rep
resented by from three to six teams
each, and if Portland sends no teams,
or only one, prospects for bringing the
Northwestern champs here in are
far from bright.

Knockout Brown's Former Second
in Huff Goes to Northwestern
Boy's Camp in Effort to Aid
in Beating: Xew Yorker.
While Bud Anderson, the Vanc6uver,
Wash., boxer, Is still characterized "the
enigma of the lightweight division." De
Witt Van Court, one of the best Judges
of fighters In the world, believes that
lfAnderson can enter the ring in good
condition, and be at his best, he can
beat any lightweight in the world. Pro
moter McCarey, of Los Angeles, who
seldom comments on boxers, says that
Bud Is the greatest natural hitter of
his weight In recent years, if not in the
Mstorv of the srame.
However. Van Court qualifies his
words of praise by questioning Bud's
ahllitv to make 133 Dounds and be
"right," a doubt expressed by practl
cally every Southern California critic.
But the Northwesterner has a new
trainer. Earl Mohan, who will make an
effort to fool Dame Nature, and send
Bud into the ring for the return mill
with Brown a legitimate lightweignt,
and not a light welter. Mohan is the
chap who was in Brown's corner dur
ing the recent mill, and Is credited with
directini- Brown in the successful ef
forts of the New Yorker to evade a
knockout in the eleventh and twelfth
rounds. -Brown offered him 15 for seo
ondlnar him. and then waxed liberal
and boosted the prize to-$10. This
ana-ered Mohan, who thought that h
was entitled to more, as Brown drew
over $2000 for the go, so he was more
than willing to decamp to Anaerson
Training; la Criticised.
The severest criticism is directed at
the training methods of Anderson,
Donald's "beefsteak" alibi receiving
scant consideration. Van Court, in par
ticular, hoots at the Idea of so many
modern trainers of continually rubbing
their charges, pointing out that the
best athletes are exempt from such
kindly-meant but harmful ministra
tions. The following is the way McCarey
sizes up Anderson:
"Anderson is, in my opinion, the
greatest natural hitter in recent years,
if not in the history of the game. Ke
delivers his punches with tremf ndoua
force and with an ease that Is ds-elr-ing
as to the actual power behind eauh
blow. He will be even better whn he
masters the art of getting his body to
ac in conjunction with his arms In
delivering his blows."
Portland and Vancouver fans who
happened to be in Vernon for the
Brown-Anderson scrap, unite in declar
ing that Bud was "all in" before he en
tered the ring. One Vancouverite says
that Bud was stricken with malaria,
which, more than overwork in the ef
fort to make weight easily, was re
sponsible for his failure to stow Brown
away within 12 rounds.
Kins Believes Wright 133.
Jack King, the Portland trainer, who
is an ardent supporter of Anderson,
contends that Bud is a legitimate
lightweight. By that he means that
the husky chap, who would be strong
er naturally at 138 pounds than 133. can
make 133 pounds with ease under the
proper kind of training.-
"It takes the right kind of a trainer,
one who knows how to reduce weight
without weakening his man, to put
Bud in the ring at his best," says Jack.
"The ring has had many men, notably
Mysterious Billy Smith and Joe Gans,
who took off from 12 to 30 pounds by
the right kind of training. I have seen
the time when Gans had hard work to
make 145 pounds, yet he could make
135 and be strong, and made 133 pounds
for several fights."
Portland Manager Still Reticent as
to Regular Line-Cp Hagermun
Is Promising as Opener.
STOCKTON, CaL, March 26. (Spe
cial.) McCredle is taking advantage of
the good weather and will have his
Beavers engage In two games here to
morrow. In the morning he will take
his. players to the State Hospital
grounds for a game with the attend
ants, who have a fast amateur nine.
In the afternoon the Portland aggre
gation will open a four game series
against Tom Hackett's Quincy team,
which promises to be hard fought, as
several of the Beavers will play on the
latter team, to make the affair more
McCredie is well pleased with the
wav his nlavers are rounding into
shape and is confident that he will win
the opening series agrainst tne neais.
Todav brought the best weather since
the Portlanrters arrived and all were in
the best of spirits. All indulged in an
afternoon of good practice without any
mishaps. A few more days of such
weather will put the team in perfect
shape and as far as present indica
tions go there will be no more rain
for some time. The pitchers were all
given a good workout today and none
complained of soreness to any extent.
All of the twirlers are in the best of
spirits and McCredie probably will not
pick the opening slabster against Hen
ley untir the day of the game. At pres
ent, however, Hagerman appears to be
the most promising candidate to open
the season.
Although the Portland manager Is
still reticent as to his regular line-up,
all of the positions are practically de
MnA on excant the Ditchers. The re
cruits are all showing up well and will
probably be carried tor a lew weens
longer, but It looks as if the regular
men will appear on the batting list.
There is still Borne doubt, however, as
to whether Doane or Fitzgerald will
be utility outfielder.

With Rube Peters Starring.
MARYSVILLE. Cal., March 26. (Spe

less ball, the Yannigans tucked away
their first victory over the Regulars
in the training camp of the Sacramento
Wolves today. Four-to-one was the
score by which the Yannigans satisfied
their longing for revenge, and they
had the pitching of Rube Peters to
thank for tbe major portion of their
satisfaction. Rube showed the kind of
form which gave the first explanation
of the season of Peters' one-time pres
ence in the big brush.
In six Innings Peters was as tight as

Regulars to four scattered hits. In the

was found for three hits and the only
run which ihe Regulars could put over.
