Portland Bantam-weight's Fame
Reaches Atlantic Seaboard.
The fame of Billy Mascott. Portland's
sensational bantamweight and present
nonnwest reatherweight title holder,
has reached the Atlantic seaboard. A
recent Issue of a New York paper gives
the little Frenchman quits a. boost.
It has been the intention of Bobby
Evans, one of Billy's most' intimate
friends, to take a fling- at the Eastern
same, either in New York or Phila
delphia. Evans has had several op
portunities to take Mascott away but
he declined, desiring to wait until Billy
has obtained more experience.
Frank Kendall, another Portland boy,
has written "to Bobby Evans, saying
that he is matched with Porky Flynn
at Boston. The contest will take place
the latter part of this month. The Port
land heavyeiwght plans on returning
here shortly after his go with Flynn.

Slowly but surely the number of

Coast League is dwindling. There
are but two pitchers who have escaped
defeat so far during the 1916 campaign.
Art Fromme, ex-New York Giant but
now a Vernon Tiger, has won four
contests up to and including the games
of labt Sunday. His teammate, Arrel
lanes, has two victories and no defeats.
"Speed" Martin and Paul Fitterjr, of
Salt Lake, are next in line, with one
setback in seven recorded starts.
"Dutch" Klawitter. of the Oaks; Bert
Hall, of the Bees, and G. Jcrhnson. of
Vernon, can t seem to get going. Each
has beers responsible for four defeats
without one redeeming feature. Kla
witter has been responsible for 24 runs
made against his team. Sothoron, of

This was the declaration of Jack Le-
bolt, of Lebolt & Co.. jewelers, regard-
ng the situation in the jewel market
as result of the European war. The
importation of pearls, according to tne
report of the Federal Department of
Commerce, fell off nearly $2,500,000
worth in the fiscal year following the
utbreak of the European war.
Reports from JSew York City that
some of the pearl importers there are
receiving shipments direct from India,
came to Chicago. Mr. Lebolt said that
uch shipments include so many gems
of poorer quality that they do not pay.
'However, the pearl market in Amer
ica has increased so enormously in the
last six months that most jewelers will
take any goods offered for aale. he

0 per cent of the shipments direct from

It is cheaper for ua to get the gems

present a very large proportion of
pearls shipped into this country is com
lng from Pans.
The imports of pearls In thisr conn

"1HRISTY MATHEWSON'S 1916 debu
J a day or two ago wm one of the
most interesting incidents of a highly
interesting year. Big Six was beaten
and yet. with the breaks all against
him. he gave promise of at least a fai
season, if not a great one. It is a note
worthy incident that the Giants began
to settle in 1914 when Matty began to
silo. Up to mid-July. that, year, ne
had won. 16 games and lost but four.
His club was then well in front. From
August on Matty besan to slip and
fall back, and the rest of the Giant
cast fell with him. His return to form
is now about the only show the Olants
have of getting back up. If he could
sret going again and Join with Jerr
Teareau there might be enough inspl
ration for the rest of the cast to rise
up and break away from the galling
bondage of the present.
Matty started with the Giants i
the Summer of 1900. Seventeen years
isn't such a long time. Well, of all
the big leaguers playing then, in addi
tion to Big Blx. there are just two
left. The answer is Hans Wagner and
Nap Lajoie. Johnson was then just 11
years old. Ty Cobb -was Dareiy out
of short trousers. And Brooklyn had
lust won a pennant.
Are We Correct T
We would like to get right on a
certain proposition. As we under
stand and recall it from tne late March
and early April dope, there were five
regular pennant contenders in the
American League.- These clubs were
Boston, Detroit, Chicago, Kew yorlt
and St. Louis.
If we are correct in our surmise
regarding the early pril dope, what
do they intend to do about Washing
ton and Cleveland, who seem to have
no idea they were picked to finish
sixth and seventh?
Same Old Game.
Baseball is still the same old gam.
In the National League affairs have
followed the broad highway of pro
phecy. Boston, Brooklyn and Philadel
phia were picked as the best clubs In
the circuit, and they have been 1-1-3
alternately all the year.
But in the American League two
clubs picked to finish far out of the
jubilee have been playing, by long
odds, the best ball in- the circuit. The
showing made by Washington and
Cleveland is the feature of the cam
paign, and. what is more to the point,
there seems to be something substan
tial back of this rollicking start.
Sir The first week in May found
five ball clubs in the National League
and five in the American less than a
game apart. Isn't this a record for
closeness? I". K. J.

f.QTRAXGLER" LEWIS, well-known
O wrestler, is going to "think his
way into tha championship." according
to Eastern newspapers. Lewis Is a uni
versity graduate, and a student of psy
etiology, or thinks he is. He has
reached the conclusion that the power
of mind over spatter will win for blm.
He says that he can beat an opponent
simply by thinking that he will.
Thinking an opponent to the mat, in
stead of throwing him, is a new one.
Plainly, one is to believe that a good,
strong brain throb is more to be
dreaded by an adversary than the toe
hold. Lewis, while he uses them, really
has no use for the scissors hold, the
hammerlock and the half-Nelson. He
goes through the motions simply to
satisfy the enthusiastic patrons. In
reality, he pins his opponent's shoulders
to the mat by thinking deeply on both
sides of his bead at once.

fact that Jess Willard owes his physi
cal development to reading, constant
thought and meditation. People have
often wondered why in nearly every
blacksmith shop there is to be found a

OREGON CITT. Or, May (Spe

in the legal battle which opened today
before Circuit Judge Campbell.
The Portland Railway, Light & Power
Company and the city of Oregon City
are the contending parties, and the
action is a suit on the part of the power
company to quiet title to a small
triangular piece of land at the southern

in examining witnesses, and the argu

and that after the flood of 1890 the
property waa never used as a street
City Attorney Srhuebel called atten
