Newport Club affiliated with the South

craft of all descriptions. The South
Coast members declare that It la not
fair that 4 boat should have a repre

boat will be represented by only -two
Vlce-Comraodore Warren Wood, who
la handling the proposition on behalf
of the cluh. brought up this arg-ument
and Is being backed by most of ths
other membera. HI request for a
larger representation ha been turned
down by the officials) of the associa

less of ths South Coast Club's desires.
So far the attitude of both parties
ha been friendly, but the uncompro

piqued the owner of racing; yachu be

"The universal role Is successfully

made by the association will rVsult In

Aeroplane or automobile which Is
foster? Thl question has been pro
pounded many, many times, not alone
in Oregon, but elsewhere. Generally
the reply has been aeroplane! Port
land has one man who takes the op
posite view, and la backing his con
fidence with money and nerve. This
person is A. J. Edwards, Portland dis
tributor of the Ford car.
Edwards, with one of his stock cars
stripped for racing, will go against
Eusrene Ely. In his Curtlss bt-plane,
at Salem today.
"J have every confidence that I can
go faster on the saucer-shaped track
than Ely in his heavier-than-air croft,"
sold Mr. itdwords yesterday, prepara
tory to starting for Salem. "My car
is in first-class shape," he continued,
"and I think I am safe in saying that
I can make a speed of a mile a minute
if the track is In good shape.
Eugene F. FJy perhaps is the most
daring and probably the best-known
aeronaut in the United States. It was
he who accomplished the remarkable
feat of flying to and from the decks of
the United States battleship Pennsyl
vania, while anchored In San Diego
Bay. Ely has been the chief instruc
tor of the United States Aeroplane
8chool at the experiment station of San
Cnrtiss Praises Ely.
Glenn H. Curtlss, the most sensa
tional flyer in the world, has every
confidence in the ability of Mr. Ely
to become the topmost blrdman in the
world. Ely ha been the Curtlss sen
sation for the post yeor.
One of the machines which he has
used is the Curtiss hydro-aeroplane, a
creation of Glenn H. Curtlss. which
runs either on land or water, rising
from both with equal ability. It was
after a demonstrotion of this kind that
the United States Government adopted
the aeroplane as a warfare factor.
It is not generally known, but Eu
gene F. Ely learned the art of flying
In Portland, acquainting; himself with
heavier-than-air craft owned by Rob
ert Jj. Simpson, manager of the Auburn
Motor Car Company. Ely flew several
times at the Country Club, never pub
licly, but gave several thrilling exhi
bitions for newspaper men and friends.
For several years Ely was associated
as salesman with the Auburn Motor
Car Company. Going East, he made
rapid -strides in the field of aviation,
attracting the attention of Curtlss by
his nerve and daring. Ely has flown

and on the Pacific Coast

Considerable Interest is being mani
fested In today's race at Salem be
tween Edwards and Ely. Many mem
bers of the Portland Automobile Club

and to see the race between land and
Edwards has been practicing with his
Ford speeder on the Portland Country
Club track, and has attained a speed
of nearly a mile a minute.
The Ford car has been stripped to
gasoline tank and seat for driver and
mechanician. The race will be held
this afternoon at 1 o'clock.
Next Sunday afternoon Edwards will
perform In his Ford racer at the motor
cycle meet of the Portland Motor
Cycle Club. His car will be piloted
against the two-wheeled autos in two
separate races. Edwards has had con
siderable experience as a racing pilot,
and possesses all the nerve and daring
of an Oldfleld; in fact, before taking
to the selling game he seriously con
templated entering the professional

BT W. J. PETHAIJT.
Harry Wolverton and his Oakland
bunch conclude their visit to Portland
for this rart of the Pacific Coast League
season today, for the Oaks do not appear
here again until August 8, and com
mencing Tuesday afternoon the Bea
vers win entertain the rejuvenated An
gels during Rose Festival week.
The series with Oakland has been a
hotely contested one. and has been
marked hfr exceptionally heavy hitting
on the cart of McCredle' braves. The
rival clubs, which fought so hard for the
championship last Fall, have clashed
strenuously all week. The Beaver bats
men have had the better of the argu
ment so far, and the prospects are de
cidedly fair for Portland to maintain the
lead, for some time at least.
Four Pitchers Going Good.
At present, McCredie has four twin
ers working in fine form, though of late
Dju c.aah feaa nni h.n favored with
much of the good luck which is ap-
portioned winning pitcners. mm is
test In Sacramento a ?ouple of weeks
ago seems to have hung a "Jinks"
around Steen, though it is hoped the
big fellow will . get back into form
shortly and make up for the wallopings
he has received in his recent games.
Ben Henderson has been the one best
bet of the Beaver squad since the team
returned home, which is in strange con
trast to the fortunes this big pitcher
experienced during the last trip abroad.
On the last road trip, Benny was at the
short end every time he started, and
since he returned home he has reversed
the order of things and has won hi
three sashays against the enemy.
Besides, Benny has also acted aa first
old to the injured when hi pals. In
deceiving the enemy, displayed signs of
lost cunning, and In every respect his
work has been of the 14-corot variety,
which effectually demonstrates that
Henderson is still "some" pitcher, and
has not yet entered into the classifi
cation of the "has beens." If he ever
was a "has been," he has shattered the
Krneger Improves Batting.
Another feature of the games played
in the series which ends today has been
the hitting of Arturo Krueger, a be
lated starter in the batting line, whose
war club has cut quite a figure in the
recent victories chalked up to the Bea
vers. Herr Krueger, sometimes fondly
referred to as "Dutch." likewise dis
tinguished himself by earning a niche
in the Portland baseball hall of fame
by being the first player to hit the bull
for BO simoleons since the tobacco firm
decorated the left-field fence with its
ad., and the accompanying donation to
ball players whose batting prowess Is
strong enough to hit the sign with a,
batted ball. This sign was undamaged
last season, and when Krueger accom
plished the feat, his teammates, as well
as the visiting players, congratulated
the big fellow on the feat.
Krueger Is one of the most popular
players in the league.
Buddy Ryan, another nifty Beaver, and
beyond any question the idol of the
Portland fans, continues to use his hat
with effect, and scarcely a game is
played in which this redoubtable player
does not create bunches of Joy for his
admirers by a healthy bit or two. In
Tact, all ot the Beavers have been
whanging the ball quite satisfactorily,
and this helps to keep the team at the
top of the heap, and to keep up the hope
that the Portland bunch will prove , re
peaters In the race for the flag.
Angels Are Improved.
Next Tuesday the Angels are here
again. This time "Pa" Dillon will have
a better-looking team than on his last
appearance here, for Pitcher Bill Toxer
Is back in the game, and eo ore Bernard
and Howard, and the addition of the lat
ter pair adds - considerable strength to
Hen Berry's merry crowd.
Berry is still on a hunt for players
In the East, and rumor has It that he
Is in a fair way to land a couple of good
ones, though it is not likely that any
of the importations will appear in Port
land this week. However, the Angels
are no mean opponents, even though the
team is occupying last place, for Dillon
has the knack of making the bunch play
ball and every game is hotly contested
from the start. With Toxer in form and
the balance of the Angels playing fine
ball, as has marked their work in the
past two weeks, the coming series prom
ises to be one of considerable interest.
The Angels will arrive here Tuesday
morning, and the series will start that
afternoon. The final game will be
played next Sunday, after which the
Beavers leave for a three weeks1 inva
sion of California, during which time
they meet Vernon. Oakland and Sacra
mento in the order named.
