Unless the dove of peace lights in
the rival camps of the outlaw Federal
league and organized baseball rather
eoon, the Portland Coast League club
is due to lose three more of i Is stars
to the Federal circuit.
Ray Bates, stellar third baseman and
the unanimous choice for all-star
honors at third base in the league,
held a conference with W. W. Me
Credie yesterday and announced his In
tention of Jumping to the JNewarks of
the Federal League.
Bates also said that Chuck Ward,
shortstop on the Portland club, in
tended to jump to the Brooklyn Feds,
and that Bill Stumpf, eecond baseman,
had an offer to play with the Balti
more Feds and expected to sign shortly.
Baltimore is Stumpf s home town.
"I live at Patterson, N. J., only a
lew miles from Newark," said Bates
last night. '"I held a conference with
V. V. McCredie yesterday, and par
tially put through a deal for the pur
chase of my release from Portland, be

theirs, I will accept the offer. I ex

Ward and Stumpf also are pretty
certain to go to the Federals, for both

Judge McCredie confirmed Bates'
statement about his conference with
Jiis star third baseman.
'Ray Is a clean, likeable fellow, and
jtave us good service this year," re
marked the Portland magnate. "He
wanted to go to the majors this Fall
and when nobody placed a draft
against him I guess it hurt him. If
he wants to buy his release I guess

Gedeon, or Bees, and Middleton and
Prouglj, or Oaks, Dissatisfied.
SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 1. (Special.)
Jimmy Johnston. Oakland's mainstay
in the outfield, already signed to a
contract to play with the Newark club
Jn the Federal League; Joe Gedeon of
Halt Lake, ready to accept an offer
with the same team, if indeed he has
not signed a contract; Roxy Middleton,
outfielder, and Clinton Prough, pitcher,
both of the Oaks, on the verge of jump
ing to the outlaws in baseball.
All this is said on good authority to
ibe the result of the week-end visit
that was made to San Francisco by
George Stovall. manager of the Kaw
feds and high in the councils of the
Salary cuts in the new Contracts of
fered by the Oakland management are
said to be the cause of dissatisf ication
co far as the players of that club are
When word came earlier in the year
that the Cubs had refused to exercise
their option on Johnston, Jimmy, so it
is reported, was assured by Manager
Rowdy Elliott that he would be hand
somely treated. His 1916 contract, re
cently submitted to him. called for a
cut of $500 on the season and this
Johnston would not stand for.
Gedeon is aggrieved because of tht
desire of the Washington club to send
him to Minneapolis. The Senators held
an option on Joe and recalled him at
the end of the year. He insists that the
management is sore because he didn't
sign a contract calling for more money
than he received with Salt Lake and
now wants to punish him by sending
him to Minneapolis. Also he is open
in the assertion that he will not go to
a minor league club.
Whether he has signed as yet with
the Feds he will not state, but an au
thentic report says he has reached a
thorough understanding with Stovall.
Middleton. so the story goes, has a
minor financial difference with the
Oakland club and has threatened that
unless he is properly treated he will
flock with the independents.
Prough wants more money than the
Oaks seem desirous of giving him for
the coming season.

There are a number of animals in
the state that are fur-bearing and
have enough of a commercial value to
warrant time and pains in their cap
ture. Predatory animals also have 1
commercial value, since there are boun

According to information sained at

there seems to be a belief that there

There is, however, no open season for

401 Wildcats Killed Last Year.
Last year there were reported killed
401 wildcats. 25 cougars. 1 wolf and 28
bears. It has been estimated by of
ficials of the Game Warden's office
that the average number of deer that
are killed by these four mentioned ani
mals is 120 a year. The cougars and
wildcats kill more than that, and it is
easily seen what the state has gained
by having these animals killed.
The laws governing the trapping of
fur-bearing animals follow:
