THE SUNDAY OREGONIAy, PORTLAND, OCTOBER 1, 1905. LATEST NEWS IN THE WORLD OF SPORTS PORTLAND TEAM STARTS ON TOBOGGAN GRIDIRON SPORTS ARE BEGUN 10 GIANTS LOOKING I TIE CELLAR Leadership Fight Seems Have No Charm forthe. Team.' to MORLEY'AND'DUGDALE-TALK Little Likelihood, However, of the Old Northwest League Taking: the Plnce-'of 'the Present. iGoastj League. . Those Giants of-ours are being ham mered deeper down in the cellar. Right now we may as well give up the battle for the leadership, forget they are still playing ball and speculate on what will be doing at the big annual pow-wow of the league magnates and dope a. little on what will result from the annual'meeting of the Portland Baseball Company. It was with a sigh of -relief that some few timid ones read that poor old Peter Leh man was down and out of baseball. The story that was started by some unknown person that Lohman would loom up on the Portland baseball horizon Tiext year, threw one, if not a couple, of persons Into a nervous chill. . Lohman would like to have been taken Into "the GJant fold, but he never had a chance. D. E: Dugdale Is another who has his ear to the ground. Dugdale's advent Into local baseball was In a meas ure a fizzle, but tlio fat man hasn't given up hopes of once more cutting in. The truth of the matter is that Dagd'ale was never given a good chance to make good. He is not a hurdler, so he couldn't take the big jumps that were strewn over the route he had to travel. Dug's visit to Portland recently was for the purpose of feeling things out. So far aa la known, he made no overtures to any one, but his visit here was for the purpose of sizing up things. He has money to In'est in a baseball team and he would sooner be in Portland than any other city, although he would like to see Portland and Seattle go back to the old order of things. Dugdale did not call on Judge W. McCredie while he was in the city. He learned through some underground sys tem that certain faces' that adorn the local baseball map would be missing next year, and he wanted to get a line on what changes were on tap. Dugdale's main reason for" looking over the situa tion, however, was not altogether for the purpose of "butting in" again, but to sound the feeling locally about sloughing any team from the Pacific Coast League. The three-year agreement with the Coast League is at an end at the close of the present season, and there are hopes in the breasts of some few disgruntled ones that the contract will not be renewed. From a financial standpoint the circuit as It now stands has not been a success, and Dugdale, President Lucas and others have been led to believe on account of certain utterances of B. C. Ely and Jim Morley that it would not take much to prevent a renewal of the contract. In discussing the situation, Dugdale frankly admitted that be expected big things to happen at the annual meeting meaning that he did not believe Portland and Seattle would be in the Pacific Coast League next year. He said that he based his opinion on interviews that Ely and Morley had given out from time to" time. "Morley," said Dugdale, "has never had much use for the northern wing of the league. He Isn't on the best of terms with the league magnates, and It would not take much for him to kick over the traces. Ely's attitude on the subject is well known. Ely believes that by cutting cut California, a league such as the old Northwest League would pay, so I look for a change when the annual meeting is held One thing is sure, something must bo done.for not a club in the league has made any money during the past three years." Dugdale seems to have forgotten that there is a chance that nelMier Eljvnor Morley vrlll be in baseball next year. It is true that the league moguls have little use for Jim Morley. Ever since he has been in baseball he has been an insur gent President Bert. Hank Harris, Cal Bwing and Judge McCredie have a pretty good line on Morley. He is no longer tak en seriously. This was shown when they voted that Los Angeles was without a franchise at the meeting held In Portland. Morley's published interview that he wasn't at all alarmed about his franchise did not ring true, for it is a well-known fact that when ho learned he was with out a franchise he at once made appealing overtures to the league magnates and apologized for not attending the meeting. "Whether Ely will have any voice In base "ball during 1906 will depend upon the out come of the annual meeting of the local club. This meeting will be held either after the season at home closes or short ly before the annual meeting of Xhe league. The McCredles own the majority of the stock, and when the transfer of interests was made an agreement was reached with Ely whereby he was to handle the finances of the club. This agreement. It was understood at the time, was to last for a year, and whethor It will be renewed will depend upon the out come of the coming meeting. At the present writing there is no Tea son to expect a break In the present re lationship between the North and South. Fans of the Northwest have no desire again to go back to a strictly Northwest League. They have been educated dur ing the past three years to high-class minor league baseball, .and even if such a thing should take place that there would be a Northwest League, the fans would not be satisfied. A league on the old lines might furnish the fans with just as fast baseball as the Coast League has been giving them, but they -would be hard to convince. You couldn't conxir.ee them that it would not be going back, and in baseball like everything else no one wants to go back. All the talk about the Coast League entering Spokane sounds well, but It cannot be accomplished without a srreat deal o.f cost. Lucas' league owns Spokane the territory has been awarded it, and the only way for those who want to place a Pacific Coast League team in that city would be, to buv out the Spokane magnates who own the franchise and the baseball grounds, which are held at fancy fig ures. The purchase of tJie ball grounds woujd -be an easy matter, but It would take a meeting of the Lucas league to obtain the franchise and the territory. Cal Ewing has been Xh Sac ramento recently trying to sell his Oa"kland franchise. "What progress he has made is not known. There also has been some talk of continuous base ball In Portland. Portland likes base ball, but it would not take-long for continuous baseball to pall -upon the fans. There are not enough transient visitors to Portland to support con tinuous baseball. Los Angeles won't stand for it. so there is no use of bur dening Portland with it. Spokane has made a record In the - T baseball world during the present year that Is unique, for the Falls City has been represented In two different leagues, and now has two clubs of an other league playing to her fans. Spo kane started off with a team In the erstwhile Pacific National (outlaw) League, which, owing to the apathy shown in Butto failed to hold together for half the season. Shortly after the disbandmcnt . of the Nationals, Mr. Lucas, of the Northwestern League, decided that Spokane was a necessary adjunct to his new territory, and after some dickering, he and the other mag nates transferred the Victoria fran chise to the Eastern "Washington me tropolis, which club finished the season as the Spokane team. During the past week Mike Fisher and the Tacoma Tigers have been play ing their series with the Oakland club, which-was scheduled for' Tacoma, ai 4he Falls City, and the "King" says that all the other gamejs that Tacoma has at home will be played In "Portland or Spokane. " " Many Eastern balltossers are on their way to Portland, to see the Lewis and Clark Exposition and to Winter in this city. Louis Castro is on his way West, and will be in tho city during the earlj- part of the week. Castro has played great ball for Kansas City dur ing the past season, having held down almost every position-on the club as he had done tho previous season in Portland. Ike Butler, who finished the season of 1904 as manager of the Port land team, is another player who will spend the "Winter in this city. Butler has been with the Grand Rapids team of tho Central League, ana according to accounts from that place, he was the club's star pitcher, and, in addition to twirling in fine form, Ik, led the team In batting as well as nil the pitchers of the league, for he Qplshed the season with an averagft of over .300. The Grand Rapids team finished third in the rac in an eight-club league. John Ganzol. formerly first baseman of the Ner York Americans, is the manager and owner of the club. Carl Druhot. the Portland boy who started his professional ballplaying career with the Portland team of and who was with Bellingham last season, has returned to his home in this city. Druhot has been recom mended to the Cincinnati club, of the National League, by that club's agent, Ted Sullivan. This youngster is a ca pable left-handed pltchor. and there is no reason why he should not make good in the East, providing he takes the proper care of himself. The youngster also has a chanco to go to another club In the same league. PRAISES NEW SEATTLE MEN Umplre Huston Says Hall's Colts Are a Likely Bunch. SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 30. Jack Hus ton, the umpire, dropped in from the North yesterday on hfs way home to Ba kersfield, where he will spend the "Winter. After the season closed in the Northwest league Jim stopped over at Seattle, where he watched Russ Hall's new colts cavort about the diamond. Speaking of Hall's new men, Huston remarked: "If Russ had had the team last Spring that he has now. you would see him not far from the top of the ladder. He has a rattling gooa team, and the only criti cism I could make was that it was shy on team work. Tacoma beat it out of a couple of games because Mike's men played better inside baseball. As soon as the Seattle bunch gets acquainted with one another and plays the ground better It will be hard to beat. This big pitcher, "Vlckers. looks awfully good to me. He is as big aB that fellow Wlggs, who used to be with McClosky. He has as much speed as "Wiggs and Is Fteadier. They say that Vlckers Is weak on bunted balls, but he put them up so fast to the Ta coma batters that they could not bunt on him. Oscar Jones complained of a sore arm after he had pitched a game. He had been bumming around Brooklyn a couple of weeks before he came to terms with Hall, so I suppose he was raw. He will get over that. Bennett and Lauterbom have strengthened Seattle's Infield more than I can tell you. Both "are very good men and Hall made a ten strike when he put Johnny Kane in the outfield, where he is doing great work. Hall has put Hurley in Strelb's place at first, not because he thought Jule was a weak man, but because Hurley Is well thought of at Seattle. Jule will be used as utility man, and, as Hart's logs are bothering him. he will find plenty to oc cupy his mind. "Behind the plate both Blankenshlp and Frary are playing well, especially Frary. I have seen Ralph work a lot. but he never put up any better ball than right now." Hcston said he could not tell what ter ritory the Northwest League would have next year, but he thought Montana and Utah would be included. Butte wants MeCloskey to come back, and if he docs not accept the St. Louis offer he will go. AMERICAN LEAGUE. I Chicago 4. Philadelphia 3. PHILADELPHIA. Sept. SO. The record crowd of the season today saw Philadel phia defeated in the third game of the scries. More than 25.000 spectators were jammed In the pavilion and the crowd In the field handicapped the players. Plank and Owen were the opposing pitchers, and both were hit freely.

PULLMAN'S FIRST SCORE, "Washington State College Defeats Spokane High School. PULLMAN. "Wash., Sept. 30. (Special.) State College, SO; Spokane High School, 0. The football season opened in Pullman today in a practice game against the Spo kane High School eleven. The State Col lege scored nine touchdowns, five goals. In two 30-mlnute halves. The game was fast and required great effort on the part of the collegians, who found Spokane a gritty eleven. Spokane made yardage but three times, and held the college boys not once. In carrying the ball the college players made continual gains of five to 20 "yards. Most of the gains were made by the halves through the tackle and end. Jones and Nlssen. halves, proved a strong pair. Hardy .at full, proved to be in the race for the greatest Northwest full back. Wexter, at left end, played, one of the finest games of the day. Hardy, alert and hard to tackle, proved a valuable player. Captain Stewart, at center. Is successful In opening holes In the oppos ing line. On the whole, for so early In the season the score of SO to 0 against the Spokane eleven Is a good test of the abil ity of the State College to win champion ship honors this season. 3Iatch Kaufraann and Jack Jeffries. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 20. Billy De laney had a little heart to heart talk yes terday with Jim Morley, the baseball magnate, who Is Interested In Tom Mc Carey's boxing club. Delaney did not say what the conversation was, but It was"surmlsd that It had something to do with getting a tight with Jack Jeffries at Los Angeles. Jeffries challenged Kauf mann after his victory over Foley, and it is thought that Delaney looks with favor upon the match. If it Is made. It will seem strange to see Delaney sitting in the corner behind Kaufman n. the lat est thing in the heavyweight bric-a-brac, and Jim Jeffries instructing his brother how to trip up his old trainer's protege. But prizefighting, like politics, creates some peculiar combinations. 11111111 M ' ' ' ' ' ;. ' f WHITMAN COLLEGE FOOTBALL SQUAD. I I OACBESTSIM Veterans Put Up Fine Game, but Lose-by 10 t6 6. IC.0LLEGE ELEVEN STRONG Promises to Be Faster Than, That of - Last Year Lawrence, "i Dolan . i and Emily Are Showing Up "VVelK CORVALLIS, Or.. Sept. 30. (Special.) The annual-alumni game formally ppened tho football season at the Oregon Agri cultural College this afternoon. The alumni team scored the first touchdown, when Zophar Tharp picked up a fumble and ran 30 yards across the goal line. It came after the 'alumni men had secured the ball on their own punt. Two -touchdowns made with ease afterward by the collegians mado the score: College, 10; alumni, 6. Early as it Is In the season, the college men showed very good defense, and the samo fast offense that made their playing notable last season. The alumni present ed a formidable line, composed mainly of the members of tho old champion team, with "Pap Hayseed" Harvey McAllister at center. Estimates of the protective strength of the new team since the .game vary somewhat, with the belief general that It will be stronger and faster than the team of last year. Another sugges tion from the game seems to be that the star honors worn so long by Root, Wil liams and PUklngton are to have added to them other stars In Lawrence and Dolan and Emily. The game was witnessed by a large crowd of spectators. The officials were Bert PUklngton ahd Dow Walker.

The football team bC "Willamette Uni versity, of Salem, Or-, was defeated this afternoon by the Stanford Varalty eleven, by the score of 1 2to 0. Stanford had the better of the game all through, playing faster and in better form, than the team from the North. Willamette, however, made a much better showing than was expected. By straight plunges and. cross bucks, the visitors made their gains time after time through the Stanford line, but much ground was lost on several fumbles at critical points. The defeated team was well balanced, no particular player star ring above the others." The cardinal team won the game only because they have been better drilled in team work and details. LADYSMITH" TAKES CUP. Defeats Portland at Association Football Two Straight Games. Superior play and weight enabled the Ladysmlths to make the finish two straight defeats yesterday so far as ttte Portland Association Club is concerned, and the Ladysmlths, of British Columbia, accordingly win the silver cup and indi vidual medals offered for association foot ball by the Lewis and Clark Exposition management. The match was played without rain accompaniment and amid good weather and ground conditions at Hawthorne Park, with the result that the Ladysmlths scored four goals, while the Portlands were whitewashed. Two of the Ladypmlths' goals wero scored out of a scramble, and the Portlands missed two good chances to score, so at one time it looked as If the game would end ' In a draw. But. there Is no concealing the fact that the Ladysmlths won fairly and squarely. The match was the best and most excit ing of the series. For their weight none played more plucklly than Dickson, at left half back, and Matthew at Inside left. Captain Kllpack made a good field dlplo-r mat and organizer. Jago, who envious soreheads said was only worth a place In the reserves, was: a star in the full back division, and kicked like a veteran. So was Gowens. Schmltt ought to be en couraged to play more, and Owens worked like a machine. It was not Owens' fault that his side did not win. The ex haustive work soon told on the Portland half back division, but they grimly played on. Referee Kcnnerlay was able apd Impartial. S. Mills, one of the lines men, was a drag on the team by not watching the play and using his mouth too much. Adams was again the star In the vls Itoref eleven and his team bad to work for their victory. They played men this time. In about two years from now. If the Portlands stljc together, train and get three or four 170 to ISO-pounders, they will be able to defeat the Ladysmlths. The line-up: Ladysmlth. Position. Portland. Halstonrs :.. . .Goal. . .

ATHLETES TAKE MONEY V SUMMER BASEBALL DOES NOT DISQUALIFY FOOTBALL MEN. Wliltnmn Accepts Washington Rul ing, but Authorities Regard It a Step Backward. WHITMAN COLLEGE. Walla Wallla, Wash.. Sept. 30. (Special.) Considerable talk has been caused here within the last few days by the action of the University of "Washington football manager In plac ing in the contract for a game with Whit man on -October 14. the provision that the playing of Summer basobail for money should not disqualify a man from playing Intercollegiate football. He also stated that the Universities of Idaho and Mon tana had agreed to disregard the rule. Ridgway Glllis. the Whitman manager, felt obliged to sign the contract but stated to the- Washington manager at the time that ho did so protesting against the clause in question. There Is a strong feel ing among the authorities here that this action will be detrimental to athletics but probably no definite action will be taken by the athletic committee beyond seeing that "Whitman lives up to the rules of the Northwest Association in this matter. Those principally concerned expressed themselves as follows o the Oregonlan correspondent: Said President Penrose; "Personally. I am opposed strongly to every form of professionalism In college. I believe that collego is an Institution for making men of culture or a high sense of honor In oth er words. I think that the solution of the' difficulty lies In strengthening the sense of honor rather than in lowering the bars TChlch are Intended to keep out professionalism. After a man is In col lege he ought to be absolutely free from the suspicion of using his athletic skill for financial gain and I am sure th,ere would be little difficulty in the matter if undergraduates appreciated the Import ance of .co-operating heartily with the faculty In regard to It. I would tolerate only one departure from the strict let ter of the law In that I would not hold a man responsible for what he did before he came to college. I would grant for giveness for a violation of the amateur rule before a man became a college stu dent but after becoming a student I be lieve there should be no violation what soever. I do not see why Summer base ball should be mado an exception from other forms of athletics. The real reason for the proposal lies in the fact that baseball Is the most popular game and that at the present time offers more op portunity for a man to make money than basket-ball, football or track athletics." Professor "W. A. Bratton. chairman of faculty committee on athletics, said: "So far as we are concerned we shall at tempt to Inforce ru'es of the Northwest Athletic Association of Colleges. My at titude Is that every taint of anything that seems like professionalism should be discouraged severely and that Inno cent as this Summer baseball with the home team, may be to appear that In reality It must lower tho whole standard of college athletics." Coach Everett J. Smith was also strong ly against the Summer baseball saying: "My opinion Is that If there Is anything detrimental to college athletics it la pro fessionalism. The professional Is not a success in football, he lacks the spirit. I think ho should" live up to the rules of the association against playing any game for hire. It develops strife between the colleges and takes the interest out of the game itself. It seems there are some ten dencies In this state now toward Its' creeping in ana I think It should be stopped In Its inception." Practice at McMInnvlllc. M'MJNNVILLE COLLEGE, Or.. Sept. 30. (Special.) Ye3terday Coach David Waddle arrived, and football practice be gan in earnest. Twenty men were out. and a larger number is expected next week. The practice last week was light, consisting chiefly of kicking, catch ing and falling on the ball, and it is not yet known just how strong some of the new men are, but thus far a few of them have shown a marked aptness for the game. A new shower bath has been added to the dresalng-room, and the room space enlarged. Rubbing tables have also been Installed for the first time, and the men will be well cared for. A training table has been established at the boarding club In the college building, at which all foot ball men will take meals. Present pros pects Indicate a strong eleven. Coach Knight Goes to Princeton. . SEATTLE. Wash.. Sept. 29. (Special.) James Knight, former coach for the Uni versity of Washington football team, has left for Princeton University, to take a special course In that school. He grad uated several years ago, and was one of the Princeton stars In football practice, but was knocked out of his big games by a serious accident. He had an offer last Summer to help coach the Princeton team. END OF GREAT STOCK FARM J. B. Ilaggin's Rancho del Paso to Be Broken Up. SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 30. (Special.) John S. Drum, the San Francisco rep resentative of J. B. Haggin. confirms the announcement from Kentucky about the breaking up of the famous Rancho del Paso breeding establishment, near Sacra mento. Every stallion, broodmare and suckling Is to be sold under the hammer, and the biggest thoroughbred breeding farm in the world will soon be only a memory. The present move has been ex pected for some time. J. B. Haggin. the founder and owner of Rancho del Paso, owns the Elmdora stud in Kentucky, and as he now lives in the Bluegrass State he has been weaned away from California. The breaking up of Rancho del Pnso will be a. great loss to the breeding Interests of California. The picturesque John Mackay has managed Rancho del Paso since Its Inception. Its growth in 20 years has been phenomenal. In 1SS1 the only stallion owned by J. B. Haggin was Longfield. Today there are almost 40 stallions at Rancho del Paso from all parts of the world. Ten years ago Gold finch, Watercress, Golden Dawn and Golden Garter were Imported from Eng-( land, and these, horses have since pro duced many winners. Such stars as Sal vator. Firenri and Ben All have carried the Hngglii colors. In recent years J. B. Haggin has not raced any horses, but such celebrities as Sir Walter. Water Color, Afrikander, Propor, Dainty, Mon tana and dozens of others first saw the light of day at Rancho del Paso. It Is estimated that there are over 400 brood mares at Rancho del Pso at the present time. THE DAY'S HORSE RACES. At Brighton Beach. NEW YORK. Sept. 30.
