Flayers Made S29.0OO.
The Northwestern League closed its
season today with the Vancouver oase
ball team the winners of the 1913
pennant. Vancouver took the lead on
July 6 and never was headed. Seattle,
champions of 1912, broke badly In mid
season and were nosed out of second
place by Portland.
All clubs either made money or at
least broke even on the season. It Is
reported. Seven Northwestern League
players were sold for a net purchase
price of 117.900 and nine were drafted
at $1250 each, making a total profit
to the Northwestern club for the sea
son in the development of players
Charles Swain of Victoria made a
record of 34 home runs this year.
The Spokane club was sold in mid
season after losing money, but under
the management of Mike Lynch re
turned to the new owners a good
profit. It is believed. The score:

LATEST PICTURE OF FAMOUS LEA DER OF PHILADELPHIA ATHLETICS
MANAGER OF PHILADELPHIA ATHLETICS SAYS HIS TEAM
WILL WIN CHAMPIONSHIP.
BY COXXIE MACK.
"I am fully confident that the Athletics will wear the title of
world's champions," said Connie Mack, manager of the Philadelphia
American League pennant winners, today.
"We have the greatest team of hitters ever brought together. Eddie
Collins Is up among the leaders, with a great average of .341, while
Baker has hit for .329, Mclnnis for .316, Amos Strunk and Eddie
' Murphy for more than .290. With five of my regulars so close to the
honor class, I have nothing to fear as regards hitting. In fielding
well I am satisfied on that score. Schang will do the catching for
the Athletics in the series. He is ne of the greatest finds I ever
Pi"Although Jack Barry does not rank among the leading batters of
the American League, being only about a .260 hitter, he is one of
the moat dangerous men ever connected with baseball when he comes
to delivering a needed hit.
"In pitchers, I am relying on 'Chief Bender, Eddie Plank and
Shawkey, the latter having performed well since I took him from
Baltimore. Bender and Plank are at present in better condition
than they were when the 1911 series opened.
"I expect the series to be an extremely close one, but I fully be
lieve the Athletics will be the victors."

NEW YORK, Sept. 28. A week more
of major league play, a week or 10
davs following to settle the world's
championship and the baseball season
of 1913, except on the Pacific Coast,
will have passed into history. The
last week saw the pennant contests in
both National and American leagues
settled beyond dispute and arrange
ments fnr the blsr series between th
New York Nationals and Philadelphia
Americans completed. The "crucial se
ries" of the year will open at the Polo
srrounds. New York. October 7, and be
foneht out there and at Shibe Park,
Philadelphia, until the winning of four
games gives either the Giants or the
Athletics the right to Inscribe the
lerenri "World's Champions. 1913." on
th elnh'tt banner.
The personnel of the two teams is
not greatly changed from tnai ol
two vears ago. when the Athletics won
the series. Erperts generally figure
a decrease in defensive strength by
the Mackmen through the loss of Jack
Coombs, and a corresponding gain by
th . (Plants throusrh the addition of
Tesreau and Demaree to the box staff,
while Mathewson and Marquard still
remain to oppose Bender and Plank.
This leaves out of the reckoning, how
ever, the large, group of Philadelphia
Athletics Hitting- Ball Hard.
It Is interesting to note that while
the Athletics have worked effectively
out of their batting slump and now
are belaboring the ball in " old-time
style, the Giants have not shown a
corresponding return to the hitting
form. Last week, McGraw's men aver
aged only 34 runs to the game, while
the Mackmen were getting nearly
The Athletics' canny leader gave his
veteran boxmen a good rest last week.

McGraw had to work hard to win
the pennant. Mathewson, Marquard
Tesreau and Demaree doubtless will be
given just enough work the coming
seven days to keep In condition for the
big job ahead of them.
Cobs Have Chance for Secoad.
With a week of the season remain
ing several contests for position in
each major league remain to be set
tled. Chicago in the National, still has
chance to overhaul Philadelphia for
second place. The Pirates are settled
in fourth plnce. The ultimate tenant
of fifth position is likely to be decided.
in the series between Braves and Su
perbas, the last of the week. Cincin
nati, however, still has a fighting
chance to rise.
In theVAmerican League Washington,
after being beaten in a series by the
Browns, took vengeance on New Tork,
winning three straight and thereby
getting a hold on second place, as the
Clevelands continued their slide and
lost three games out of four. Boston
and Chicago stood practically still and
the fourth place contest still is an open
one. Detroit has the sixth berth re
served for occupancy until the end of
the season, while It will take the last
week of play to determine whether St.
Louis or New York shall be tallenders.
Cobb Safely in Lead.
The batting duel between Ty Cobb
and Joe Jackson was watched with in
terest. Tyrus officially went to bat 20
times last week and hit safely in 12 in
stances for an average of .600. Of his
12 hits two were three baggers, and
one a double. The fleet Detrolter also
scored three runs and stole four bases.
Jackson, on the other hand, had a poor
week of It for him, hitting safely only
four times in 14 times up, an average
of but .286. However, he scored five
runs in the four games he played and
stole two bases.
Only one of his hits was for extra
bases a three bagger in Detroit en
Saturday. Cobb's great work puts him
far out in front and there is little
doubt that the batting laurels of the
season will go to him.
Speaker has been out of the Boston
lineup lately and his average is likely
to stand about as it is, probably rank
ing him third among the Amerlcar
League hitters. Lajoie finished another
season well above the .300 mark. In the
National there is a pretty fight be
tween Daubert.and Cravath for leader
ship among the regulars, Daubert hav
ing a slight advantage when the latest
unofficial averages were compiled.
The veteran Honus Wagner bids fair
to complete his 17th consecutive season
as a .300 hitter as since the last compu
tation, which gave him a .300 mark, he
has been hitting at a .333 clip and the
season has but a week to go.

scored at least five more touchdowns
against the Astoria eleven Saturday,
according to the members of the team,
Coach Borleske says the referee called
penalties which aggregated 365 yards,
the locals 'coming within 10 yards of
Astoria's goal more than 10 times. Lin

Fullback Newman scored the only
touchdown for the Portland team, but
failed to kick goal. Rightend Mclndoe
received an injury to his hip, while
Newman injured his ankle.
Following are the members of the

If you hunt big game there
is no rifle so well adapted
for your requirements as
one of the various Win-i)
Chester models. If you
shoot birds or wild fowl a
Winchester repeating shot
gun will surely please you.
There is this advantage in
buying a Winchester gun,
that , is, its entire depend
ability. Some guns are
made to sell. Winchesters
are made to satisfy. That
they do satisfy is shown by
the fact that they are used
by about two million shoot
ers throughout the world.
When buying remember

Nlrlc Williams' Portland Colts
clinched second place in the North
western League yesterday at Spokane
and the junior bunch wil be back In
Portland today with whlnneys and

Pacific Coast Leaguers. The two local
clubs big - and little brothers are
scheduled to meet in mortal combat in
their annual city championship tussle
this afternoon at 3 o'clock at Recrea
While McCredie In his remarks prior
to the game invariably takes this
Northwestern-Paciflo Coast squabble as
a sort of joke, the fact remains that
Walt would rather lose his right eye
than be humiliated by the Class B
Therefore it Is quite possible that
Eugene Krapp or Harry Krause will
twirl today for the Beavers, although
Lon Stanley has been mentioned 11
along as the probable starter. Carl
Mays, the drafted pitcher, will be on
the mound for the Colts.
Botb Teams Crippled.
Both teams will be crippled, so it Is
a standoff there. Bancroft's place in
the Portland Infield is being filled by
Ouigni and Netzel. an ex-Beaver, likely
will be located In an outfield niche.
Williams will catch.
The Coasters will line up about as
they did against the Seals last week
with Speas, Lindsay and Derrick out.
McCormick will be on third, Davis at
short aid Kores at first
Field exercises will precede the big
game, the calisthenics being scheduled
for 2:30 sharp.
Reverting to the Northwestern
League race, which closed yesterday,
Nick Williams, of Portland, Is given a
great deal of praise.
Stanley's Loss la Felt.
Walter McCredie was good to Nick
In sending him some winning timber
from the Coast camp, but, now that It
Is all over, the recapitulations show
that Walt virtually robbed Nick of the
