W. IV. Finn to Work at Alan In In

W. W. Finn, manager of the Van
couver, B. C, race programme, one of
the holders of a concession for the
staging of running races In Mexico
City, and one of the best-known turf
men of the country, was a Portland
visitor yesterday. Finn Is on his way
to Spokane, where he will work among
the horsemen at the coming Alan meet
In the Interests of the Vancouver pro
gramme. While Finn and Canadian associates
have Invented many thousand dollars
In the million-dollar plant In Mexico
City. It la not likely that an effort will
be made to hold a meeting next Win
ter, Aa soon as political conditions
permit the turfmen will stage a 100
day programme at the Mexican capital.
A combination of good and bad luck
kept Finn from Mexico City during the
recent troubles. He. was called to his
home in Missouri by the death of a
relative, and was crossing the Mexican
line when the news of warfare In the
streets of Mexloo City turned him back.
Indians to Play at Eug-ene.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Eugene,
March 27. (Special.) Oregon's base
ball team will play the overture to the
present season with the nine from the
Chemawa Indian School Saturday.
Welch will probably start the game In
the box for Oregon, and Tuerck. Blgbee
or Fleming will relieve him if neces
easy. They ;liad combined a lot of
work In the two days of good weather
previous to the White Sox game and
consequently two or three of the boys
did not dress in their uniforms. Mohler,
Doty and Dougherty were among the
absentees at the ball park.
A long practice session was indulged
In from 10 o'clock In the morning un
til 1:30. The usual practice stunts were
gone through and a team composed of
pitchers entirely played the Yannigans.
Some of the pitchers are rounding to
slowly. Hynes, Doty, Bloomfleld and
Agnew will not be able to participate
in the Sacramento games next Saturday
and Sunday. The chances are that
Girot, Callahan, Martlhonl. Cooney,
Mays and Stevens will be called upon
to show their pitching skill against the
Senators. None of these except Martin
onl and Cooney are In good shape. So
the work will have to be divided be
Young Walters showed well In the
outfield against the Sox, hitting every
ball hard at the home plate; but right
at some opposing fielder. He Is fast
and has a fine arm.
It has been unfortunate that the bad
weather prevented some of these young
fellows from getting Into more games
as they all look promising and seeing
them under fire in a real game gives
a man an opportunity to notice their
good and bad qualities.
The regular team will leave Friday
afternoon for Sacramento, while the
yannigans will stay until Monday
morning and play Santa Rosa at borne.
