Look Hollocher Over,
The Portland ball club lost one south
paw when the temperamental Walter
Mails quit to work in the Seattle ship
yards, but Walter McCredie signed an
other yesterday. The new left-hander
Is "Lefty" James, of Louisville, erst
while member of the Cleveland Amer
ican League and Cleveland and Toledo
American Association clubs.
If he is half as good as the other
Bill James the Beavers had a few
years ago, now with Detroit, he will
strengthen the local twirling corps.
James won eight and lost seven
frames last year for the Louisville pennant-winners.
' His effective average
was 3.91 runs per nine innings, which
wasn't particularly brilliant. The pre
vious year, however, James won 19 and
lost 13 with the near tail-end Cleveland
Colts, so another change in climate
may prove beneficial.
James to Report Soon.
James already is on his way to the
Coast, and should arrive before the
finish of the Seal series.
Another pitcher joined the Beavers
yesterday, De Greif, the Whitman Col
lege athlete. Mack had him out in an
eld faded blue uniform and will give
him the "once over" twice or three
times, and may start him in some game
already won or lost.
In the absence of Bill Rodgers, who
is nursing a lame shoulder or rib or
something, Slglin held down second in
the opening game yesterday, Plnelll
being stationed at third and Griggs in
the right garden, with Wilie in left.

en route to the Northwestern League,
but he will have to hurry, for by the

William M. Ladd, after reading the
article by Mr. Goss In The Sunday
"I have read with Interest what you
had to say in yesterday's Oregonian on
the subject of Oregon tennis for the
boys, and I want to say that I do not
think you will ever regret any time
which you give toward helping our boys
to learn to play a good clean game of
tennis. I hope that I may be present
next Saturday afternoon to do my share
In helping Portland win."
Marshall Allen and Millington Grey,
the Seattle entries, arrived in Portland
yesterday afternoon and practiced on
the Irvington Club courts.
Voung Allen will try conclusions
with Paul Steffen. the Portland pride,
but he will have his work cut out.
Steffen has been taking lessons from
Mr. Goss and Is improving rapidly. Phil
Neer, the boys' champion, will have
things to himself from the form he has
been displaying to date. While only
a boy, his tennis prowess would do
credit to many of the veterans.
Bealls C. Wright, one of the world's
grreatest tennis players, has been ob
tained to referee the matches.

The longest match of the day was
between Jesse Guilford, Massachusetts

were one even at the half-way point.
The veteran player halved the 10th in
five and won the short 11th with three
and the 12th in par four, but Jones cut

the hole and match, 3 and 1.
Onlmet lias to Extend Himself.
Francis Ouimet, former National
amateur and open champion, found
Tartar in A. S. Mclntyre, a rather in
experienced Chicagoan, who admitted
he was somewhat abashed at his fa
mous opponent. Ouimet has not shown
as good golf as ordinarily, but quali
fied with 77, 77 154, finishing third
in medal play. In the match he won
the first hole in par four, but took six
on the second, and was over par, and
four on the third, one over par, and
was one down. He squared it on the
520-yard fourth with a birdie four, and
was one up at the sixth, won in par
three. Another birdie four on the 490
yard seventh made the Boston man
Mclntvre then halved the next si
holes, four of them in par, but was
three down after losing the 14th. They
halved the next, and Ouimet was
dormie three. With a birdie four on
the long 16th, Mclntyre kept Ouimet
to dormie two, but lost the 17th and
the match, three down and one to play.
Gardner Worries Anderson.
John G. Anderson, twice runner-up
In the National amateur championship,

INDIANA CASE IS CITED
Formal Opinion Not Given, but
Precedent Is That One Person
May Not Hold Two Lucrative
Positions at Same Time.
SALEM, Or, July 10. (Special.)
While still adhering to his declaration
not to give an opinion as to the status
f Circuit Judges Oantenbein and Davis,
of Multnomah County, who have gone
to the offlcere' training camp, Attor
ney-General Brown today called at
tention to a historical old Indiana case,
that of Kerr vs. Jones, 19 Indiana,
which Mr. Brown says la exactly In
point as to the situation of the two
Judges absent from Multnomah County.
The Indiana case Is woven around
Benjamin Harrison, a former President
of the United States.
It Involves the Interpretation of a
provision In the Indiana constitution
which inhibits one person from holding
more than one lucrative office -at the
same time. The provision In the Ore-
eon constitution was taken from tne
Indiana constitution. It Is a rule of
construction often laid down by the
Supreme Court of this state that the
Oregon courts will construe statutes or
organic provisions borrowed from oth
er states with the same construction
as that given by the courts from which
such provisions originate.
In Kerr vs. Jones, Benjamin Harrison
was elected Supreme Court Reporter.
During his incumbency he Joined the
volunteers and was called into service.
He selected a deputy to act In his place.
During Harrison's ' absence another
election was held and a successor to
Harrison was elected. The successor
called for the papers and documents
belonging to the office, but they were
The court compelled the holder of
such papers to turn them over to Har
rison's successor on the ground that
when Harrison Joined the volunteers
and took out a commission In the Army
he relinquished his post as Reporter
for the Supreme Court.
"This is the case upon which I large
lv based an opinion given last Summer
to Adjutant-General White when he
went to the border," stated Mr. Brown
today- "When he became Captain In
the cavalry I held that he relinquished
his post as Adjutant-General."

Hundreds in Exhibition.
Peninsula Park was a falrlyland
scene last night, with hundreds of tal
ented little lads and lassies dancing In
the pantomime pageant, "The Pled
Piper of Hamelin." The attractive ex
hibition was staged on the lawn in
front of the bandstand and later a
pretentious concert of muBlc followed
in two parts by the municipal band.
"The Pled Piper" was put on early In
the evening, beginning at 7:30 in order
to catch the twilight for the lighting
effects. The cast was made up of two
dozen "rats," little boys 'in rat-like
costume, with long tails and whiskers,
who pranced in and out from behind
the bandstand and annoyed the
Misses Garbed as Villager.
There were a dozen or so misses
garbed as the villagers who waged
their war against the rodents. Miss
Marion Allhands appeared as the "Pied
Piper," a role she played in delightful
mood, gayly and merrily dancing in to
pipe the rodents out of the village.
Then came the "citizens," a group of
lads In costume, who refused to pay
the piper. Followed next the dozens
and dozens of dancing children in color
ful raiment, who laughed and followed
the Piper out of town. The action be
came swift from here on. "Silver and
gold to his heart's content" the citizens
promised if "he'd -bring their children
Band "Piped" "Prom Village.
So next the Pied Piper piped the
merry band back tto their village, the
"mothers" rejoiced, the "citizens" paid
royally and the "rats" were forever
banished. The entire little pageant
was in pantomime and beautifully
presented. Miss Allhands and A. P.
Patten directed the training. The
scenes were nine, and all presented on
the greensward. The big park was
crowded and thousands, not finding
seats on the benches, lounged on the
steps about the bandstand, or aiund
the sunken gardens, or on the grass.
The band-concert was .a rare delight,
with Percy A. Campbell eVirecting. Pos
sibly the biggest and most applauded
number wa3 a vigorous and musicianly
treatment of an American and Indian
fantasy, entitled "The Death of Custer,"
by Lee Johnson, a splendid interpre
tative number. Eight big numbers with
i.n encore for each made up the band
programme, and the audience was
moved to deepest appreciation.
The night was auspicious for the
presentation of the pageant and the
concert, the scenic beauty of Peninsula
Park heightened the beauty of the
event and several thousand turned out
to do homage. This event is the second
of a series of playground features be
ing staged under direction of Park Su
perintendent Convill for the benefit of
the thousands of teachers who are In
