Tomorrow Portland at Spokane.
Tomorrow Vancouver at Seattle,
Tuesday Seattle at Portland.
Three more games and the first half
of the 1916-1917 season of the Pacific
Coast Ice Hockey Association will be
history. Tomorrow night two contests
will be staged. Portland meeting the
Spokane Canaries at Spokane and Seat
tle playing Vancouver. Tuesday night
Portland will play Seattle in the Ice
ralace. This is the only match slated
for that night.
The 6-to-4 defeat of the Uncle Sams
by the Canadians Tuesday night and
the 3-to-l victory of Seattle over the
Canaries jumbled the league standings
again. The Uncle Sams were forced
into the cellar, while Seattle jumped
out in front.
From all accounts it was "too much
Lehman" that was responsible for the
trouncing handed the Oregonlans. It
was a rough match and full of real
action, particularly the last period. The
Seattle aggregation took the lead soon
after the engagement started, and it
never was headed.
At last Dick Irvin, the former Win
nipeg amateur, has reached the top of
the ladder in the individual scoring
honors. At the start of the present
campaign he was used only as a sub
stitute, but in the last four matches
lie has been a. regular, scoring 12 goals
in that time. He registered two goals
and one assist against Vancouver Tues
day night, and as a result he passed
Dr. Gordon Roberts in the standings.
Irvin is credited with 21 points so
far this season, 17 of them coming from
goals scored and four from assists. Dr.
Roberts has 14 goals and six assists,
good for 20 points.
f The Uncle Sams remained in Seattle
all day yesterday, and today will go
to Spokane, where they will play to
morrow night. William F. Scott, man
ager of the Portlanders, is somewhat
disappointed as to the score Tuesday
night, but he was satisfied with the
' way his aggregation was working, so
. nothing but a victory will be accepted
after tomorrow's embroglio.
A win for Portland and a win for
Vancouver will mean that second place
will be a tie between Seattle and Port
land at .500. Vancouver, who was in
the cellar the first part of this week,
will then be in the lead, while Spo
kane will be out of luck.
The first game of the Portland In
terscholastic League ice hockey season
will be played tomorrow night be
tween Lincoln High and the Jeffer
son High. Play will start at 8 o'clock,
and everything will be completed
within an hour so that the regular
ekating session can be held.
The coaches for both squads will not
be able to witness the fray. Tommy
Murray, the Portland goal keeper, is
v.oaching Lincoln, while Captain Char
ley Tobin, of the Uncle Sams, is look
ing after Jefferson.
Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club
versus O.-W. R. & N. will be the sched
i le for next Monday night in the Port
land Amateur Hockey Association cir
cles. The Police dropped a 2-to-4 af
fair to the Northwest Auto Hockey
Club last Monday night. Harry Moun
" tain and Dean Lane each sagging the
net twice for the winners.
In 10 games Vancouver's representa
tives have recorded 50 goals for an
average of five each game, while Port
land is second with an average of 4.91
goals each match. Seattle has put up
the strongest defense, allowing but
:t.77 scores in all games. The Mil
lionaries have allowed 5.20, while Port
land is charged with 4.67.
" Does any one believe that Jim Jef-
fries. Jack Johnson and Jess Willard
" reached the top through their "brains
' and courage." or through their physi
' cal bulk and their developed knack?

Impressed by Pete Standridge's 1915
' trip to Eastern climes. "With Los An
geles in 1916, Standridge made a better
showing against every club but Port
land than he had made in 1914 when he
was pitching for San Francisco. In
1914 Sacramento was the only club that
could win more than it lost against
Standridge and it has his measure to
the tune of seven wins and only one
defeat. In 1916 Standridge in part
wiDed out this stain by picking in Sac-
lamento's heir. Salt Lake, for four wins
and two defeats.
In 1916. Portland with five wins and
only one defeat was the only club that
could win more than It lost against

Thomas J. Darmody.
Thomas J. Darmody is encoun
tering difficulty in getting Ivan
Olson, ex-Beaver and present
Brooklyn 6hortstop, from the
Dodgers, according to the latest
reports from Brooklyn. Darmody
made a hit with the Los Angeles
fans by naming Olson to head the
Tigers next season. Everyone
thought that he must have se
cured the Brooklyn club's consent
before giving out the announce
ment, but late reports from the
big-league city cause one to be
lieve that he did not.
Those on the inside think that
he will eventually land Oleon,
who should make the Vernon club
a hard one to beat. Olson should
prove popular with the fans, and
in that way be just the opposite
of Ham Patterson, recently deposed.

"My advices have convinced me that
not only Coach Bezdek, Captain Beck
ett. Huntington, Parsons and Tegart
deserve the greatest credit, but espe
cially the real football spirit that was
shown by the whole team in overcom
ing what looked like a depressing be
ginning and fighting back with in

their attack suddenly to forward pass
ing when the opposing secondary de
fense came too close to their line and

Vincent Monpler. of Portland, will clash
In another big bout.
Reinforcing these four' headline bat
tles are two preliminaries.
Bronson has made a hit in Portland
by defeating Lee Johnson and fighting
Madden, of Seattle, to a draw. The
Seattle boxer packs a right-hand punch
which may disturb "Muff if he con
nects. The bad cold which attacked
Bronson after a fishing trip of last
Sunday apparently disappeared yes
terday, and be worked with all of his

Now that Les Darcy, the pugilistic
pilgrim from Australia, is in New York,
fans of this country are speculating on
his ability as a fighter. Until he be
gins actual training for whatever en
gagements may be made for him they
will have to depend upon heresay evi
dence, which certainly puts Darcy all
to the good.
Walter Miller will wrestle Chris
Gesek in Spokane tonight at 14$ pounds
at 3 o'clock. He has written here that
he would like to meet anyone who can
be secured for him in Portland. He
says that he has heard that John Berg
says he can beat him two falls in one
hour. Miller says he is willing to back
himself with J500 in that sort of a
match with Berg.
According to Charlie Carr. ex-big
league first baseman who was a Port
land visitor Tuesday. Jack Dillon, the
Indianapolis "man-killer," will be
through as a fighter unless he takes
better care of himself. "Dillon Just
recently opened up a cafe In Indianap
olis," said Carr. "He never used to
smoke or drink, but does now and
seems to have lost interest in fight
ing." Carr and Dillon are fast friends,
as they both reside in Indianapolis.

In most parts of the country, may not
show the same fear of meeting Herman
in a long contest that he has displayed
in signing up with Williams.
Most fans hope that Herman and

will be able to gain a clean-cut decision
so that the bantamweight tangle will
