The Portland baseball company has
been offered $lj,U00 by the New York
National loaprue club for Pitcher John
C "Red" Oldham and First Baseman
Luzerne Blue. The offer came to Man
ascer 'Walter H. McCredie at Los
Angeles throuph Moose MoCormick,
Muggpy iktlraw'fi foxy forager for
A slip of Judge "William "W. McCre
die's tongue last night caused the first
information of the offer to get out
here. The president of the Heavers
will spend an hour and 30 minutes
tvith Nephew Walter at the union sta
tion tonight when the pair will talk
over the deal and arrive at some defi
nite conslusion. Judge AlcCredie re
ceived the dope from the ifeaver man
ager yesterday.
Oldham is the best pitcher in the
league, although he is far from the
top as shown in the records. Red has
pitched about as many innings as any
other chucker in this western circuit
and if he were with Los Angeles or
Vernon would, without question, be far
out In front. As it is he has won 16
and lost 13 which is a mighty fine rec
ord considering the streaky manner in
which the Mackian machine has per
formed this semester.
Lew Blue came to Portland by pur
chase outright from the Uetroit Amer
icans. He bats either left or right
handed and is swatting tho ball at a
.1:72 clip after getting off to a bad
start in the swatsmith line. Blue re
minds many old-timers of Hal Chase
when the temperamental Califorman
first broke into the game on the coast.
He is tho most improved ballplayer
on the team.
Two major league scouts are swopp
ing down on California parks Moose
McCormiik of the Giants and Hugh
Duffy of the Boston Red Sox. Before
becoming a scout, Mi-Cormick gained
renown as a pinch-hitter for McGraw's
crew from Gotham, seldom failing in
a crisis. Duffy, when playing, was one
of the greatest hitters in the game.
Later he managed the Chicago White
Speaking of McCormick's ability to
deliver in the well-known pinch, it
might be well to say that it was un
doubtedly Lew Blue's ability to punch
over runs at psychological moments
which prompted the Irish scout to bid
for his services. It was Blue's home
run in the eleventh inning which won
the final game of the series for Port
land at Los Angeles Sunday after
noon. Lew's fielding is of the flashy
variety and he's fighting for the old
ball game at all times.
Judge McCredie was very close
mouthed on the deal last night. He did
say however, that if the men were sold
that he was of the opinion that they
would not report until next spring.
The Portland club is due at 10:30
o'clock tonight from Los Angeles and
will entrain again at 11:30 o'clock for
Seattle to open the series with Seattle
at the sound city tomorrow afternoon.
"Whether it will be a six or seven-game
sessionBis not known. If seven games
are played there will probably be double-headers
Saturday and Sunday for
one double-header at least becomes
necessary because of today's postpone
ment. If I'resident Jim Brewster of
the Rainiers has the authority to play
seven games he may call for the extra
battle on next Monday and play but
one game on Saturday.
San Francisco entertains Vernon at
the Seal Rocks city this week. Salt
Lake will be the guest at Sacramento
with the Oaks and Angeles scrapping it
out at LossAngeles. These three series
commence this afternoon.
Double-headers will be in vogue
every Sunday afternoon that the Beav
ers are home from now on at Twenty
fourth and Vaughn streets. Judge Mc
Credie made this motion to the league
directors and has been granted permis
sion to stage such affairs.
Judge McCredie, who returned late
Sunday night from a two weeks' so
journ at the hot baths which he for
merly owned at Oakridge, Or., believes
"that it was Outfielder Oeorge Maisel's
injured leg which kept him from being
eold to Cincinnati. Maisel Is not in
the Beaver lineup at this time because
of the injury and therefore would be of
- little use to the Redlegs.
Outfielder Billy See. obtained by Cin
j cinnati from the Rochester Interna
: tionals when that club failed to get the
: services of Maisel, was the Babe Ruth
of the International league. Like Ruth,
See's strong point originally was pitch-
- ing. and he was hired by Rochester as
a twirlor. But he hit the ball so hard
" that Arthur Irwin, Rochester's man
ager, played him in the outfield when
he wasn't pitching. See was leading
the International league in batting
when sold but his pitching suffered as
1 a result.

Tat llarkins, former Angel twirler.
" Is one of llie heroes of the war who
has t been heralded much in these
parts. When America entered the scrap,
1'at went into the aviation, and be
came a member of a pursuit squadron.
His record was three German planes
and seven observation balloons. But
l'at piled up another record when he
was shot eight times and lived to tes
tify to the fact. llarkins is recuperat
ing at a California resort. His wounds
have all healed.

bugs like Meehan, who wouldn't draw
flies in San Francisco, where he is con
sidered a freak and a clown."
Curley arrived in Portland Sunday,
and says there is a chance of his coming
back to Portland the end of the week
before proceeding to San Francisco.
This depends largely on just how much
of the timber deal he can close while
in southern Oregon. He says he in
tends to stick all of his money in Ore
gon timber, preferring that to Tex
Kickard's oil wells.

Coach Successful in Kentucky Will
Assist Bob Evans.
Cal., Aug. 4. (Special.) A- L. Acker
has been appointed assistant football
coach at Stanford for the coming sea
son. He will assist Coach "Bob" Evans
rounding out the second Cardinal
American football team in years. Acker
made an excellent record in turning
out two Kentucky state championship
teams and his work at Stanford will
consist mainly in coaching the fresh
men squad.
A conference between Manager Ames
of Stanford and Manager Nicholls of
the University of California has been
scheduled in San Francisco for tomor
row afternoon. The proceedings of this
conference will probably settle finally
the date and arrangements for the ."big
game" between the two colleges.
One day last week when Cincinnati
was beating Pittsburg, Dutch Reuther
of the Reds dusted off Fred Mollwitz,
first baseman of Pittsburg. Fred got
mad and soon as he regained his feet
he hurled a bat at Reuther. But his j bait casting; 11 A. M
control was bad and Dutch easily side
stepped to safety. Mollwitz was chased
out of the game and the fans panned
him for losing his temper and weaken
ing his team by getting fired out.
At a meeting of the Multnomah
Anglers' club yesterday noon at the
Imperial hotel plans were discussed and
final arrangements made for the north
west fly and bait casting champion
ships to be held on August 9 arid 10 at
the Sellwood park casting pool. V alter
F. Backus, secretary of the Multno
mah Angiers' club, just returned from
trip to Puget sound cities, was- pres
ent at the meeting. Backus has been
looking over some star fly and bait
casting performers in Seattle and Ta
coma and had some interesting news
for the local casters who were present
at the meeting yesterday.
t Seattle will send six of her best men
to the local tournament this year. J.
Monette, one of Seattle's representa
tives, is a dangerous man In th dis
tance bait events, having won every
thing in that class in the local tourna
ments held in Seattle this .year. R. S.
Hays and C. A. Waisen, both of Se
attle, are expected to make the com
petition hot for the local boys in the
fly casting events. Hayes specializes
in the accuracy fly events, while "Wai
sen is strong in the distance fly cast
ing, having a mark of 100 feet and
better to his credit. F. V. Rhoades and
F. S. Byler are the two other entries
from Seattle.
All-Hound Champ Coming.
In the delegation from Tacoma will
be R. H. Pcrrow, the all-round cham
pion of last year, who is expected to
make a strong fight for the cham
pionship in the local tournament this
year. W. J. Bailey and R. V. Xason,
two of Tacoma's best bait casters, are
expected to show up well in the bait
events. Bailey will be a hard man to
beat in the accuracy bait events1 and
Xason has been making a good show
ing in the -ounce distance bait. Dr.
Ralph Hutchinson, C. R. Werner, and
D. C. Gilkey are three other casters
who are coming to the local tourney
from Tacoma.
The out-of-town anglers from tho
Puget sound cities will arrive here Fri
day morning and will spend most of
Friday at Bell wood park getting ac
customed to the local pool. They will
make their headquarters at the Im
perial hotel while in the city. The
committee of the Multnomah Anglers
club in charge of the tournament have
made arrangements for lunch to be
served on the grounds.
The local club members have been
putting in a great deal of time in prac
ticing for the championship tourna
ment and from the scores made In some
of their practice tourneys an excel
lent showing is expected of the Port
land casters. The following Multno
mah anglers will compete against the
out-of-town stars: Walter F. Backus,

Jennlngs Keels Chesty.
Hughey Jennings Is beginning to feel
hopeful and says that his Detroit
Tigers may wind up the season in
whirlwind style. Jennings has built
up a great ball club, no mistake, and
Detroit fans, who once clamored for his
release from the management, are wor
shiping at iis feet. The Tigers are
powerful at the bat, and are well bal
anced in defensive strength. Their
success this year is partially due to the
F-plendid catching of Ainsmith and the
improved pitching of Dauss, Khmke,
Boland and Dutch Leonard. If these
boxmen can hold their own for the rest
of the campaign, Jennings may enjoy a
laugh at the expense of the White Sox,
Yankees, Clevelands and Browns. But
the Tigers have two more eastern trips
to make, so that Jennings sensibly re
fuses to claim the pennant.
