1 SPOKANE. Wash.. April 20. (Spe
cial.) Covaleskie pitched airtight ball
and was accorded magnificent support
In the opening game of the series
against the Portland Colts this after
noon and Spokane won. 7 to 1.
The big Spokane pitcher, who lost
his first out. was never in better form
than today. Three safeties, two of
them healthy triples and the other a
lucky pop over . the infield, were the
only satisfaction he gave Nick Wil
liams' men. Until the seventh Inning
not a Colt got as far as second. Net
eel who in the -fourth made a fluke
single and was thrown out with lots
to spare in attempting to steal second,
opened the seventh with a triple to
left center and scored when Melcholr
drove a triple to right center.
With a runner on third, none out
and Spokane only orie run to the good,
the Colts' chances looked good and all
the fans held their breath. Mllllgan
hit a hot one to .Wuffll down the third
base line and was thrown out at first.
Ouignl then rolled an easy one to
Ilolke. who threw Melcholr out at the
bag. Shea blocking the Portland' run
ner off cleverly. Guignl attempted to
eteal, but was caught by a wide mar
Kin -f by Shea's perfect throw. - This
was 'the only Inning in which the vis
itors were dangerous, not a single one
getting beyond first in any of the
other1 innings. In five of the nine in
lngs they went out. ne, two, three.
Loss Not Enstley's Fanlt.
Eastley, who has long been a hard
rut for the Indians to crack, was on
the mound for the Colts, and It was
not his fault that the score was not
a lot closer.
The tribe went out in order Jn the
first. In the second Jlmmie Lewis was
plven a base on balls, stole second and
eccrea on Holke's Infield hit and Mur
ray's error. The Portland catcher
dropped Guigni's perfect peg. which
had Lewis six feet off the plate. Holke
went to second on the play and scored
when Coltrln threw wild to catch
"Wuffll at first Two runs, neither of
them earned.
It was not until. the. last half of the
seventh that SDokino put the game
sway beyond doubt. Lynch reached
first on an error by Netzel and was
forced at second,- Holke going "to first.
Wuffll cracked out a hard double,
Ilolke was thrown out at the plate by
Eastley. Covaleskie, who is usually
kood for about three hits a season, then
brought Wuffll home with a pretty
single, and Powell walked. Covaleskie
Bccred on Butler's single, and Powell
nd Butler reached home when
hit one a mile a minute over sec
ond. .Spokane Pangcruus in Eighth.
Spokane was dangerous again In the
eighth, when Holke and Wuffll poled
out hits, but the former was caught at
tiie plate when Thea rolled an easy one
to Eastley. Score:

Welch Adds to Ball Record.
When Oregon's crack twirler, Welch,

game onto his remarkable three years'
record with the lemon-yellow. In that

When the Venice Tigers pounce upon
the field at 3 o'clock this afternoon
against the Portland Coasters, to re
sume their annual warfare, two or the

pitted against each other.

of 40 Summers, as against 82 Winters

Borton, the big flrst-sacker who

When it was announced during the
Winter that Hogan had fixed a deal
for "Doc" White, his old boss. Fielder
Jones, ' opined that "Doc" would have
a good year out on the Coast.
And Fielder seems to have diag
nosed the .situation with more than
ordinary acumen. White already has
pitched and won five games for the
Tigers. He took the San Francisco
Seals down twice the opening week,
winning two of the three games ac
quired by the Venetians.
Since last Fall Hogan has over
hauled considerably his batting order.
Jack Bliss, of the Senators, has been
added to the catching roster; Leard,
of the Oaks, occupies Brashear's niche
at second: McArdle, of the Seals, is
at short, and Pitcher Henley, of the
Seals. is another acquisition well
known to Portland fandom.
Hogan has been using Frans Hosp
at third base, and it win not De sur

at the difficult corner most of the sea

wonderfully well at short.
Thus far in the year no team has
been able to make the Tigers back up,
and. those who have seen them In
action think the Tigers the most for

the circuit.
Los Angeles larruped Oakland un

The Sanitary Ail-Gas Kitchen
PICTURE to yourself this kitchen ia operation the Rund
Automatic Gas Water Heater in the basement, without
any attention save the turn of a faucet, supplying you
with unlimited, inexpensive, pure hot water. Unlimiud because
the water runs piping hot as long as the faucet remains open
the laundry and bath supplied at the same time. Inexpensive
because the Ruud is self-operating and burns gas only while you
are drawing hot water. Pure because the water is
heated as it passes through the long copper heating coils
direct from the water main.
Think of the Modern Gas Range, especially equipped
for any mode of cooking, heat easily regulated to a "just
right" temperature, no dirt, no ashes, no excessive labor,
and all this comfort and convenience at a low cost for gas.
The best demonstration of .the merits of these
"comfort makers" is to see them in operation at

The Giants' Star Pitcher.
EW YORK," N. Y., April 20. (Spe
cial.) Many calculations have
been upset In baseball since the
season started. The clubs that 1 ex
pected to get the jump havo fallen
down, and the supposed weak ones
have come ' through in pretty good
shape so far. The Federal League also
has got away with flying colors, an
other unexpected development, from
my point of view. But. after all, the
showing of the first week does not
amount to much.
The new organization has made a
profound impression on the ballplay
ers lately, especially since the opening
of the league in Baltimore across the
street from where the Giants were
meeting the Baltimore International
Laguers. There was not room in the
Federal League's grounds for the crowd
which desired to attend, and some of
the overflow came across the street to
see the Giants' big game. But all the
enthusiasm was over the rival attrac
tion. A big holiday was made of the
occasion in Baltimore, and the Gover
nor of Maryland attended.
Some of the members of the New
York club expressed their surprise at
the showing. If the Feds can keep up
this sort of attendance pace for any
length of time they are going to con
vince the ballplayers that they really
have a league. Many of the stars in
the big leagues have been holding off
until the Feds got under way before
believing that the new organization is
liable to stick. A lot of them will lis
ten to offers for next season, if the
present showing holds up.-
Of course this large attendance at
the start may be simply the result of
the curiosity of the fans to see what
the new league will do, and may not
bo any true indication of how far the
league will go. Almost (anybody - will
go once to see a new exhibit, but if the
real goods are not on display pernio-
nently, they won t go again.
As T have before, I don't think
that the new league has the ballplay
ers to carry it through the season with
the) patronage necessary for success In
these days of high salaries. However,
if the Feds make it this year, it is go
ing to be easier for them to pick up
the real stars next Winter. You would
be surprised at the sensible players in
the business who are beginning to take
the Federal League seriously. I know
of one man wh5 has been on a club
that has taken three world's champion,
ships, who made this remark to me recently:
If the Federal League makes me an
offer next -Fall like the one it did last,
I'm going to consider it a long time. If
I don t take It, I'll worry somebody
Even some of the Giants are wonder
ing what it is all coming: to, but the
older players on the club are too loyal
to McGraw and too sure of the future
of the team to do any Jumping. How
ever, the good start of the Federal
League baa worried the club owners,
because it was confidently hoped by
the powers in organized baseball that
the new league would crack as soon as
it saw the light of April sunshine. AH
baseball men realize that the new
league means the expenditure of a lot
of money before it either cracks or Is
taken into organized baseball. The
players appreciate this fact, too, and
they are going to. profit by it. because
they know that as soon as the war is
settled, the scale of salaries is going
to be badly cut.
A prominent baseball magnate as
sured me last week that under the new
scale of wages only, a few clubs in
organized baseball have any chance of
making money this year. Of course,
the Athletics, the Giants, the White
Sox, with their solid Chicago patronage,
and one or two more teams which
should finish in the first division.
should show -a profit. This magnate
added that the club owners in the Fed
eral League -did not have a chance to
get anything on the good side of the
ledger with the salaries in that or
ganization exaggerated as they are at
present and the added expense of the
new parks to carry. Such men as
Falkenberg. formerly of Cleveland,
ilenorix. wltn tne firates last year.
and Seaton are taking; down enormous
pay, while Knabe, Tinker. Doolan. and
the rest are getting the real cream in
the money line.
Beavers and Ihe Tigers tied them on
their home grounds.
Add to these proxy comparisons the
fact that Venice also has a series over
Sacramento to Its credit and you will
readily Bee that Venice looms up now
as the best bet in the Coast League.
However, trie season is too young
yet to indulge in pennant predictions.
Portland always comes stronger
after McCredie has had time to pet his
team In lighting shape. He is handi
capped by having to train away oft in
a foreign land with no outlet for
strenuous competition.
Sacramento is bound to come
stronger, too, after a month or two,
while San Francisco is pretty sure to
become more phlegmatic as the sea
son progresses.
Venice generally holds to pretty stilt
gait the entire season through, but,
