Linn .County Jurist Read, Only Short

Reminding; Him of Beach.
ALBANY, Or, Sept 1. (Special.)
"Jean J., the brown mare valued at
$4000 by her owner, E. G. Johnson, of
Seattle, dropped dead at the Irvington
Park races yesterday."
This item appeared in the "Twenty-
five Years Ago" column of The Ore
gonian last Thursday. When D. B. Mc-
Knight County Judge of Linn County,
read this item it carried his thoughts
back a quarter of a century to the time
when he saw this occurrence, and .he
recalled that when this mare dropped
dead she was being 'driven by Jay
Beach, for years one of Oregon's most
prominent horsemen. The judge re
marked that he had not heard of Beach
for many years and would like to know
what had become of him.
That morning when Judge McKnight
went to his office. Edward Washburn,
bailiff of the grand jury, met him in
the halt "An old soldier was here to
see you yesterday when you were at
Lebanon," he told him. "He waited
around a long time and was very
anxious to see you. He said his name
was Jay Beach."
It developed that Mr. Beach had been
attending the Grand Army of the Re
public gathering in Portland and had
stopped here to see Judge McKnight
while on his way to his home some
where in California. He did not leave
his address so his old friend cannot
write him. Beach formerly resided in
Oregon many years, but has been s
resident of California for a long time.
Judge McKnight said today that
Beach did more than any other breeder
for the light harness horse in Oregon.

Foundation and Cornfoot Nines
Only one game will be played in
the Columbia-Willamette Shipbuilders'
League this afternoon. As McCormick
clinched the pennant Saturday when
they defeated Cornfoot and because of
the poor crowds, the officials and man
agers of the teams in the league have
decided to call it a season, calling off
the proposed 'games for St Helens and
Vancouver this afternoon. The only
game will be between Foundation and
Cornfoot at the Vaughn-street park.
Foundation will play McCormick
post-season series of five games for the
championship of the league starting
The fans have supported the ship
builders' games fairly well and would
have stood behind them a wnole lot
stronger if all or more of the teams had
been of equal strength in the first and
second half of the season. The first
half of the season Foundation and
Grant Smith-Porter had it all to them
selves and in the .second half three
teams McCormick, Cornfoot and Stan
difer have been on top all season.

RECEIPTS IV DROP
World Series, However, Will
Attract Many Fans.
THOUSANDS TO BE MISSING
Each Member of Winning Team This
Tear Is to Receive $2 00 0, While
Loser's Individual End Will
Amount to $1400.
NEW YORK, Sept 1. While neither
gate receipts nor attendance figures are
expected to be broken at the coming
World Series, baseball fans throughout
the country iare certain to watch the
daily returns with more than the usual
interest owing to the changed condi
tions under which the series will be
played. Two outstanding features are
apparent which heretofore have not
been faced by either the players or the
magnates at any time in the history of
the baseball classic.
No such National or international
crisis has .ever prevailed during the
playing of a world series as exists at
this time. Under normal conditions
the annual clash of the pennant win
ning clubs of the rival major leagues
has each season been one of the events
of the year. The play was followed
each day by hundreds of .thousands of
baseball enthusiasts in all parts of the
country. Great cities and little hamlets
in isolated sections of the continent
nave witnessed the daily gathering of
throngs before the bulletin and player
boards to follow the fortunes of the
competing teams. Today the mind of
the public is burdened with great re
sponsibilities and cares and the world
series at best can be but a momentary
Under the circumstances it appears
certain that while the games may be
well attended, there will be nothing
like the great outpouring of fans which
have each year filled the parks to
capacity and svelled the coffers of
the clubs and players. Strange to say
this will make little difference to the
men who will participate in the
diamond battles for under the new sys
tem of apportioning the winner's and
loser's individual share of the receipts
they can secure only a fixed sum, re
gardless of the total of the gate re
ceipts. .As adopted last Winter by the two
leagues and the National Commission
the amended regulations provide that
each member of the winning club shall
receive $2000. as his share of the world
series proceeds while the loser's in
dividual end will amount to $1400. The
total of these sums will come from
the usual 60 per cent of the gate re
ceipts for the first four games of th
series. The new arrangement, how
ever, calls for a further distribution ol
the balance of this 60 per cent fund
among the players of the three clubs
which finish the pennant race of both
leagues respectively; second, third and
After the 'money apportioned to ths
players of the two competing teams
has been deducted- from the original
60 per cent the residue will be divided
upon the following basis: To the play
ers of the National and American
League clubs finishing second in their
respective race, 50 per cent; to the
third- place ekibs, 30 per cent, and to
the fourth-place clubs, 20 per cent
This new arrangement does not af
fect the club owners or the National
Commission, however, for the old rule
of distribution still prevails. Of the
40 per cent of the gate receipts of the
first four games, the National Com
mission will receive 10 per cent and the
club owners 30 per cent. After four
games have been staged the players
cease to participate in the distribution

Not played under National commission rules.
over the interpretation of the
rules of play, Spalding's Golf Guide for
1918 gives interpretations of the differ-
nt rules in numerical order, originally
resented by A. H. Gilbert secretary
f the Massachusetts Golf Association,
and revised by Captain J. A. bcott or
Boston. These interpretations should
be very edifying to new and even to
experienced golfers, for they call at
tention to points too often overlooked.
In discussing the time to drive, these
interpretations say: "It is customary to
t the players of the party ahead play
their second shots, no matter if their
rives are far beyond the possibility or
A too strict observance or mis cus
tom would tend to slow down play on a
crowded day. It often happens that
pair o'f poor players follow the stars
of the course, who regularly outdrive
those behind by from 40 to 60 yaras.
To hold back until these high lights
play their second shots would be to de
lay the movement ol tne line, ana migni
be considered as arguing too high an
appreciation of one's doubtful ability.
In the case of women playing, it ' is
generally safe to allow them to play
even before the good men players ahead
take their seconds, as the men will be
anywhere from 80 to 100 yards beyond
where the women can drive.
It will profit many an experienced
golfer to read these interpretations
with care, for they will. freshen up one s
knowledge of the rules on points wnicn
a olaver may not have had occasion to
deal with for several years, but which
may arise at any moment in play.
Ball Must Be Dropped.
Take, for example, the simple rule of
droDDing a ball, which comes up so
often in play. How many players know
that the ball must be dropped, not
tossed, over the shcrulder? Is it not a
common sight on any course to see tne
players raise their hand to the top of
the shoulder ana give tne Dan a hick
or toss over tne snouiaer insieaa oi
placing the hand far enough over the
shoulder to permit the ball to be
dropped clear of the body?
This mistake is the result ol pure
laziness more than anything else, with
the exception, perhaps, of the reeling
that it is a little beneath one's dignity
to spend much time or devote much
care to so simple a thing as dropping a
ball. It is in watching great players
like Travers and Ouimet that one comes
to understand the necessity of being
right in little things. In this respect
there is a great value in galleries at
big matches such as the recent Ked
Cross four-ball at Siwanoy.
The penalty for not dropping the ball
properly is the loss of the hole in match
play and two strokes in meaat piay.
Yet how seldom does a player "can
his opponent for not having dropped
properly, even if the ball was actually
pitched over the shoulder. It is in thus
overlooking rule violations rather than
run the risk of getting the name of a
kicker or a stickler that rules fall into
Under the heading of "Whose Turn
to Play," the interpretations say some
thing that is Yiot often considered and
has been overlooked even by the Rules
of Golf committee of St Andrews, Scot
land, as shown in its book of decisions
on contested points submitted to it for
judgment The writer in Spalding's
Guide says: "You should, before play
ing, find out where your opponent's
ball is, for the one whose ball is farther
from the hole must play first"
St. Andrews Decision Opposed,
This view negatives the correctness
of the decision of the St Andrews body
in the case of a golfer who played into
a bunker and in playing out before his
pponent's ball was looked for struck
lie sand with his club., Later it was
learned that the opponent s ball could
not be found. The committee ruled that
the player who touched the sand in the
hazard had lost the hole.
Now, if the player in the bunker Tiad
taken advantage of the privilege men
tioned in the Guide he would not have
played till he had ascertained where
his opponent's ball was. When that
ball could not be found he would not
have had to play out of the bunker at
all, but could have claimed the hole on
a lost ball. The decision of the com
mittee was wrong in that it awarded
the hole to a player who did not have a
ball in play, something opposed to
every consideration of Ifair play In
Another often ignored or not under
stood rule has to do with lifting in
match play and medal play. The inter
pretations say: "It may be that the ball
is in such trouble as to be absolutely
unplayable (as when lying in a crevice
between two rocks). In match play the
ball must be played where it lies or the
hole given up." There is no option in
Many Players Get Mixed.
In medal play, however, the ball may
be lifted with a penalty of two strokes.
The ball does not have to be in an un
playable position to justify this lifting.
for it is pointed out that "while this
privilege of lifting is usually exercised
only if the ball is unplayable, it is al
lowed at any time during a round and
sometimes is taken advantage of by
cautious players when in difficult posi
tions in sand traps, etc.
Many players get mixed on the count
in such cases but they will not if they
listen to the explanation given in the
Guide: "If the ball be played Into an
unplayable position in medal play and
you desire to lift under penalty of two
strokes, you should count as follows:
If it is the drive, then you tee the ball
and play 4, counting the drive as stroke
1. the penalty as 2 and 3, thus making
the next stroke 4."
If Spalding will make these interpre
tations a feature of each year's Guide,
keeping them up to date, in harmony
with the latest decisions, a positive ben
efit will accrue to the game, not only !
in educating the newcomers, but also in
enlightening those older players who
Bobby Evans has been heard from
again and this time the former local
boxing promoter who intends return
ing to this city this week and pliina

Evans is not so sure that he will b
able to land Jack Dempsey and if he
does he questions the ability to pit
him against a fighter capable of even
making a mediocre showing with the
battler who claims the heavyweight
title. Evans will know definitely
whether he will secure Dempsey as a
headliner after a conference' with Man
ager Kearns and Dempsey, which will
be held as soon as Dempsey arrives
in San Francisco.
According to Evans' latest missive
he Intends signing "Battling" Kruv
osky and Jimmy Darcy. That would
bo a pippin of a match if Evans lands
these two middleweights. Both art
the same style of slam-bang fighters

Johnny McCarthy is coming north,
according to Evans, and Coffroth has
wired Willie Ritchie, former lightweight
champion now boxing instructor at
Camp Lewis, asking Willie to fight
Johnny in this city at the benefit
smoker. All McCarthy is to receive
fcr his fight is transportation expenses
incurred en route and while in Port
land and his salary as a motorman on
the Municipal Railway while away
from San Francisco. If Kitcnie ana
McCarthy battle it ought to be a rip-.

Efforts have been made to sign these
two lightweights before but there has
always been a hitch in the programme
and to date they have shied clear of
each other. Joe Gorman, Alex Tram

others are on Evans' tentative card.
