SALT LAKE CITY. Oct. 5. (Special.)
Coveleskie and Stumpf conspired to
toss away a great big Portland lea-J
and let the Bees make four runs In
the last half of the ninth inning, there
by giving Salt Lake a victory in the
opening same of the series, 8 to 7.
Gilligan started on the mound for th.
Bees, but he didn't show anything, and
after allowing four runs in five in
nings yielded to Peterson, the recruit
from the Northwestern League, who,
although hit hard, managed to get
til rough.
Beaver Bat Hard.
The batting of the Beavers was re
sponsible for Portland's big lead. 1 to 4.
at the start of Salt Lake's rally. Ward's
single in the third, the first of his
four hits, became a run on hits by
Speas and Bates. In the fourth
Carlsch's single and Ward's double,
-with Coveleskie's sacrifice fly, gave the
Beavers another, and in the fifth Der
rick was beaned and stole and came in
with Bates when Bates homed over
the left field fence. Right there Peter
son went in to replace Gilligan. He al
lowed seven hits in the four final in
nings. In the sixth the Beavers sent
two more men home on a hit by Ward,
Coveleskie's walk, a passed ball and
tineas' single. The final Portland tally
came in the ninth on Stumpf's double
and Fisher's single.
Bee Rally I psets Beavera.
The Bees started on Coveleskie In
the fifth on Orr's hit, a walk, an infield
out and a passed ball. In the sixth
the Bees made three on Quintan's hit.
Derrick's and Bates' errors, and sin
gles by Brief. Ryan and Orr. Cove
leskie then tightened until the ninth.
The Bee rally was brilliant. Zacher,
pinch hitting, had fanned, when Han
nah doubled, and Reuther, also pinch
hitting, scoring him. Doubles by
Quinlan and Shinn then sent in
two more, tying the score, and Cove
leskie was yanked, Hig g going in.
Higg fanned Brief, and then Stumpf
booted Ryan's grounder, Shinn tearing
home with the winning run. Score:

' day Coach Ed Bailey is daily working
his squad of Albany College men at
top speed. Next Saturday will be the
opening of the season for the Pres

effort to make up for the lack of pre
season games and scrimmages.
. "The team is light this year, and will
average about 155," said Bailey yester
day. 'The line is weak and we have
had only four scrimmages this year,
and the loss of Toles at tackle has
hurt us a lot. I expect Willamette to
beat us, but we will give them a hard
game." .
French is doing the punting for the
orange and black team and is show
ing up well. Hunter at center is a
tower of strength on the line. It is

Portland fans will take an unusual
personal interest in this world's se
ries. This is chiefly so because young
Dave Bancroft, of the Portland teams
of 1912, 1913 and 1914, is shortstop on
the Phillies and because of the pres
ence of Carl Mays and of Vean Gregg,
former Portland pitchers, on the Bos
ton club.
Local fandom, too, will watch the
work of Alexander with more than
passive concern. Alexander is con
sidered generally to be the keystone
of the entire series. Without this
great pitcher Philadelphia would never
have won the National pennant and it
will depend in great measure upon his
performances in the coming series as
to the final outcome.
On the tour of the - National and
American League all-star teams on
the Pacific Coast last Fall Alexander
pitched for the National in Portland
against "Portland Bill" James. Alex
ander won the game and, while James
is exceedingly popular here, none could
but admit that Alexander towered
above him as a slabbist.
We have at hand, through the
courtesy of Chester G. Murphv, a
comparison of Dave Bancroft and of
his Boston rival. Shortstop Scott, from
the pen of Hugh Fullerton. the Chi
cago dopester. He says:
Beyond doubt. Bancroft will bo a greater
player than Scotl. Bancroft, a "busher"
practically, won the pennant for Phila
delphia. To him, even more than to G.
Cleveland Alexander, belongs the credit for
the victory. of course, neither could have
won wit.iout the other, but Bancroft ' made '
that Infield, transformed it from an un
certain and ragged defensive proposition
a. hard-flelding. clean-working machine.
Cutting down to figures. Bancroft can out
hit Scott about 30 points against all kinds
of pitching: he is speedier on the bases and
clever at getting the Jump on the pitchers.
In the field the men figure very closelv
togetner. Scott not being quite the equal of
his rival in going toward third base or in
comins forward and cutting across in front
of seeoni base; but he plays the deep field
perfectly and is steady and brilliant in short
pliy especially with the Infield drawn close.
He handles a ground ball cleanly and gets
it away to the bases quickly, but in that
he is not the peer of Bancroft, who shoots
from almost any position.
The players declare that Bancroft In this
respect, is almost the eoual of Dool'an. who
was considered the greatest of all players
at that style of defensive work. Bancroft is
faster in double plays, but there is one
thing I want you to observe in comparing
these two fellows. Watch Scott whn h
passes the ball to Barry and see the dif-
icr.icw in tne manner in which he handles
It from what he did last year. Then watch
Bancroft and Nlehoff make the same play.,
This play is. I think, executed better by
Evers and Maranvlllo thnn kv -
They slip the ball to each other with a
scoop motion, merely pitching it toward the
bag while the other is sprinting to meet
the hail and trying to reach the bag in po
sition to make the throw to first quickly.
The danger of an error thnt will min a
double play is minimized and the danger of
oii going isr enougn to make the er
ror more serious is eliminated. Besides that,
the ball is at the base, easy to handle, and
the ether player can move freely and with,
out fear, which lets him cover more ground
im Dim rearn tne oase in time.
Bancroft still has a hnhlr j.rt.ctntlv
hurried, of snapping the ball to Nlehoff
with a quick wrist motion when the plav
must be made in a hurry It comes fast
to the base, doubles the danger of a muff,
and if the muff does happen or the throw
is bad. the ball goes on and the runners
advance another base.
They seem evenly matched at the wait
ing game, and on the bases all the advan
tage is with Bancroft, so that with the ex
ception of the little Inside points of the
game, a little more finish on his combina
tion playing, and a few minor details of
play, Bancroft outfigures his Red Sox rival.
St. Mary's College, of Oakland. Cal.,
will be well represented in the series.
Three members of the Boston club.
Hooper. Lewis and Leonard, and one
of the Phillies, Eddie Burns, are from
St. Mary's. Harry Krause. of the
Portland Club, is also from St. Mary's,
being tne first of the quintet to butt
into the big ring and the first to par
ticipate in the spoils of a world's se
ries. So great was the success of the au
tomatic world's series board shown at
the Heilig Theater last year that W.
T. Pangle has decided to unpack the
board again. It will be in shape for
the first game of the series and every
morning at 10 o'clock thereafter.
Every pitched ball, every foul, every
fielding and batting play Is shown on
the board.
Finish of Schedule Delayed and
Chance for Secret Practice Flits.
pointment was general in the camp of
the Phillies, the new National League
champions, today because rain caused
a postponement of a double-header
with the Brooklyn team. It had been
hoped that the regular season here
would be completed today, and that
tne two days intervening before the
world series on Friday could be de
voted to, secret practice in preparation
for the big game.
Prospects for finishing their schedule
tomorrow were anything but brilliant
tonight and the weather forecaster
held out little hope for a clear day to
morrow. If rain . again interferes It
was officially stated that the games
will be called off in order to give
Moran'a men at least one day of rest
before clashing with the Boston Amer
icans for premier baseball honors.
Manager Moran held a secret confer
ence with his men during the .after
noon and it was said that he imparted
to them whatever knowledge he gained
of the Red Sox in viewing their play
at New York yesterday. It has been
his custom all through the season to
confer frequently with his players in
secret, believing, he says, that to ac
quaint them with certain points about
opposing players and teams' tactics
goes a long way toward winning games.
Applicants for tickets to the games
to be played in this city will not know
until Thursday whether they are fortu
nate enough to secure the coveted
seats. . The management of the club an
nounced tonight that notices will be
sent out by mail Wednesday night to
those to whom tickets have been al
lotted, stating how they can be ob
tained. Thousands, however, are doomed
to disappointment because the applica
tions exceed the seating capacity of
the park ten-fold or more. In order to
minimize the chance of the tickets fall
ing into the hands of speculators, it
was announced the applicants will have
to be identified before receiving their
Mayor Blankenburg today accepted
an Invitation to attend the second game
of the Beries on Saturday. Three seats
in the private box of W. F. Baker, pres
ident of the club, were placed at his
disposal. This box adjoins the one to
be occupied by President Wilson, who
also will be present at Saturday's
game. The Mayor received an invita
tion today from Mayor Curley. of Bos
ton, to come there on Tuesday and "see
the obsequies" in the fourth game of
the series, which, the Boston executive
said, would be the last.
The Philadelphia baseball writer to
day selected Chandler R. Richter, of
Dporang ine. to De one .or the official
scorers of the series.
Abont 5 00 0 Persons to Be Allowed
to Stand In Available Spots.
BOSTON, Oct. 6. The world series
games to be played in this city next
Monday and Tuesday probably will be
witnessed by 45,000 persons. President
Joseph J. Lannin, of the Boston Amer
icans, announced tonight. Careful
checking up of the capacity of Braves
Field, he said, had shown that this
number could be cared for without in
convenience. About 5000 persons will be allowed to
stand in the rear of the grand
stand or behind the fence to be erected
in right field.

Liberated Pheasants Believed e Have
Thriven. Leadlas to Large Number
to Be Found In Valley.
Unusually good shooting by pheasant
and duck hunters was reported to Carl
Shoemaker, state game warden, yester
day from various sections of Western
Oregon invaded during the week by
shooters. Pheasants seem more plenti
ful this year than in former seasons,
a fact that Mr. Shoemaker attributes
largely to the liberation of 4000 pheas
ants this year by the state.
The normal increase in these birds
would be 20.000, he said, and from Mar
ion. Linn. Polk and Benton counties
particularly reports of many birds and
good hunting seem to bear out the be
lief that the liberated birds have
thriven amazingly.
"Last week 1 saw thousands of pheas
ants in the TTmpqua Valley," said Mr.
Shoemaker. "It was the day before the
season opened and they were so tame
they would hardly get out of the way
of the automobile. We are getting re
ports from all sections that the shoot
ing is exceptionally good, with plenty
of birds."

"Wolfer, Star of Last Year, Is Shifted
to Backfleld for High School.
Paul Cndllpp Again Is in
Coach Enrlbart'a Idneup.
Today is the day!
Enthusiasm is at its highest now for
the opening of the 1915 football season
of the Portland Interscholastic League,
wnicn win De staged this afternoon
on Multnomah Field between the Jef
ferson High School and the Portland
Academy. Both teams reported in great
shape last night, and each is eager for
Referee Francis to start the match at
3 o'clock.
Nothing except light workouts, fea
turing signal practice and open plays,
were on the boards for last night. In
the lineup announced by Coach Homer
Jamison for his Jefferson High School
eleven, eight of the players were among
the 1914 regulars, and the same num
ber of letter men are gracing the Port
land Academy roster, according to
Coach "Spec" HurlburL
Wolfer Switched to Backfleld.
Last season the high schoolers ad
ministered a 23-to-0 walloping to the
private school representatives, due
mainly to the efforts of "Ike" Wolter.
"Ike" scored all the points for the Jef
ferson High School on forward passes,
goal kicks and a safety when he threw
the opposing halfback across his own
goal line.
Now Wolfer has been switched to the
backfleld to help Steve Wilcox and
Captain Moe Sax advance the ball from
that position. Ward Irvine, considered
to be one of the headiest quarterbacks
in the league for seasons past, is not
out with the Jefferson High School this
year. His place is being ably tilled by
Paul Cudlipp. who played quarter
back for Portland Academy last year,
is a halfback now. and Captain Blllie
Lewis has been taken from am end to
quarterback. "Buck" Hicks, the Acad
emy fullback, is going great guns, and
If he appears in the league games like
he did in the two practice games it
will take a great deal to keep him off
the 1915 all-star team of the league.
Play May Sot Start Before 3ilB.
The contest today has been called for
3 o'clock; but because the Jefferson
High students have to come so far to
Multnomah Field it may not open until
3:15 o'clock. The various coaches and
players of the "other teams of the Port
land Interscholastic League will be on
hand to give both teams the "dou
ble O."
Grover Francis, of the Multnomah
Amateur Athletic Club, will be the
referee, and Herbert J. Campbell, of
the same institution, will be the um
pire. Both were officially appointed
to their duties at a meeting of the
league directors held last week. The
hcadlinesman will be selected by the
two contending coaches on the field this
afternoon. Whether or not a field
judge will be necessary will be deter
mined when Coach Jamison and Coach
"Spec" Hurlburt meet today.

It is time that I smoke another Van

cigar case he is too fine a fellow to
throw loose in the coat pocket,
I light carefully. I smoke deliber
ately ; there is quite a pause between
my puffs. I am not one of your walk
ing chimneys I smoke Van Dy ck !
Ah, that rich Havana leaf how
often I look into its cool white smoke
and see again my old home !
It is the siesta of midday. The air
is heavy with complete fragrance. I
rest in the blue shadow of my living
room, smoking slowly. The splattering
tinkle of water sings in my ears from
the fountain in our courtyard.
So I say to myself that Mother Nature
is not after alL the jade she sometimes
' seems.
Does 6he not give us many tobaccos
for the beginners in smoking? Does
she not give the precious Havana
tobacco in Van Dyck cigars to those
of us who are more fastidious about
our cigars ?
After but one Van Dyck I thank her
