In a rent lssu of th Rural Nw
Torker. H. W. Colllngwood, special
writer on th taff of that periodic!.
has th following Interesting Impres
sion of a world championship b-
-Two strikes, thr ball"
-A .tlenc ao intense thm you eocld
feel it fail upon 0.000 people, who saw
the upirplr put up hU hand to an
nounce t.-. .econd .trlk. It waa th.
crisis of in flr.t baseball gem for th
world championship between New
Tork and Philadelphia. Tho great
stand wr black with people, and
thousands mora wero perched upon th
rocks which ros abora th levl In
which th ball grounrf. ara laid out
Th boy and I t on the bleachers. It
was th only place w could Bet. and
w eat ther Ihre hour before the
gam began and we were among th
last to get in. Of course you will any w
should rav been at hom picking ap-rl-a.
but without discussing that I wl.l
admit that w wer packed away In
that -bleacher crowd.
-Ther were ome !S.0 of us crowd
ed on thoe wooden bench with our
feet hanging down. Her and ther in
Mi black mass f hat a pot of lighter
color howd whr om woman haJI
crowded In with th rt. Ther may
bar been 100 women tn tht crowd. Th
.tax-ls whir, th reeerred eat ar
placed wer brlaht with women gay
color. Our at wer not reserved,
but well "deae'ved' after our etruggl
for them.
f enjoyed th crowd a much aa I
did th him. Many of you have no
doubt read that dccrlptlon In Hen
Hur of the motley crowd wMch urgd
out to th crucifixion. Gibbon d
crlbe tn msrs of humane who at
tended tile Komn game. Th world
aa known at that time trathered at these
pectaclea, yet I douM If thoe old-t!m
horde eo-ild fiow th variety of blood
or color which showed within 100 feet
of wber w wer. Within four feet
at two colored men showlnrf traces of
two distinct African race. Th young
man on tr.y rtaht wae certainly an
Irishman. Th f.t man. who was wM
enough to fill two seats, we a German.
In front n Italian, behind ws a Swede,
off there a Frenchman, a Spaniard and
eeen a thlnaman. Ther wa an A rah,
whose father at dates In th desert.
The son had looked forward to this
late s an oasis In th desert of hard
work. Here were Indians. Japanese.
Mexicans. Russian. Turks th entlr
world had poured the blood of Its raca
Into this ya.xt crowd.
"I do not beilcv the great Coliseum
at Rom erer held a larger company.
Yet this crowd was different. In th
sai-aa" hordes of centuries t(o th air
wa filled with a babel of sound each
rac ..Ir.ektng In It own language.
Th! Tt army of "fans- thought and
pok tn th common language of Cnf.
ltsh and baseball. For there la a true
language of baseball. Nothing ran b
popular unless It acquire a language
f it own.
Tt wa an orderly crowd too. Pome
how these waltlnrr men seemed to feel
that they had come fo th hush and
ntirnlty of a -treat occasion. You may
laugh at us you poor unfrtunat peo
ple who do not know a home run from
a fir catch, but you bar missed a lot
ff tha thrill and Joy of life.
Heme Kelt for Other.
"W feel sorry for you. To th true,
baseball crank thla cam represented
th climax of the year, for her woe
i he best Is player tn th world ready
fjr tha supreme struaKl. rio thee
thousands sat silent and watchful, for
aa you may know, when stirred by pas
sion. Su.000 people may glva rent to th
moat hldeou and awesome sound. Yet
when stilled by th th.iusht of what la
to com th sllenc of thl great army
Is most profound.
-Now. of course you and I may say
what a pity that all thee "people and
tha nrgy and money they represent
could Pot be used for ome mor use
ful purpose. I could nm half a doien
thing which this country needs. If it
were posslbl to rather 0.000 people
In behalf of any of the thlnre with
th claw of elemental uiaKry barely
covered with thin cotton glovs no
I-erlslatur In th land would dar re
fuse tn demanded law. That la true,
hut It la also true that human nature
has not yet evolved from that point
where at th last analysis the physical
power and what It stands for appeals
first to tha younc and strong. You
cannot get away from that, and It
must be considered tn all our rots rots
about th 'youna-or generation."
-v can hare anything w want In
legislation and reform, whenever w
cen work tap a spirit and demand for
It which la akin to thla baseball feel
ing! For In thla silent, orderly crowd
ther was nothing but cotton over th
.laws. There was a dignified looking
ntiiea not far from us who looked
like a fair representative of th Clty
of Brotherly Lore- You would pick
him as on of a thousand to take
charg of a Sunday school. Yet when
a Philadelphia player raced homo with
the first run there came a hoarse cry
that might even have startled a l!st
leea Csear 2to years ago. Ttirr was
our Philadelphia frwnd on one fjot
waring his hat and shrieking def'snce
and taunts at th crowd of New York
fans." Why. the germ of that man a
mind waa back In tne, centuries, clad
In hairy flesh and sklr.s. shouting a
wsr cry at what wer then Its ene
mies: Rleaeber Rata Cry.
-Ar.d when New Tork tied th -or
the entire bleachers seemed to rls like
a great black ware of humanity with
shrieks and rrl-s and waving hat.
For the moment these were har.Ily hu
man be:r as w Ilk to consider th
race. They were crair barbarian
lapsed for the moment back to elemen
tal motives. And as I came back to
f.nd myself standing up with the rest
1 waa not aur but that th brief trip
back to barbarism had cot after all
been a profitable one!
"But w left th umrlre standing
with hi hand up calling two strike!
It was th fifth Innins. and th score
on to one. There were two out and
York had worked a man around to
tr.lrd base. On mor pltcned ball
would tell the etory.
-Consider tha mix-up of th race In
this Amarlcan game." Th man on
third base straining Uk a greyhound
t0 gt horns waa au Indian. Th nan
at bat waa of Frwac& blood, wall th
next batter waa an Irishman, with a
Jew clone behind htm. Th catcher
waa an KngUanman and th pitcher a
pur Indian. This Indian stood ther
Ilk a silent representative of fate, with
th ball In his hand, eyeing that
Frenchman, who shook his bat defiant
ly. I presume neither of them thought
for th Instant how 100 year ago It
would hare been tomahawk against
muiket In plao of ball and bat. Yet
the rac traits were evident th light
and airy nerre of th Gaul and crafty
ilieuc of tse red man!
Bedlaa Break Loose
"Oh. how tfiat bail did go In. "Balir
shouted the umpire snd the batter took
his base. Then It seemed as If bedlam
had broken lio. Men and women
shouted and cheered and laughed and
cried, for they thought that Indian waa
hratUed' at last. But his ancestor
went through too much f.r for that.
H stood In th center aa cool as a
cake of Ice.
"Th play for th man on flrat waa
to run to econd when the ball was
pitched, and run h did. 1 noticed that
tha catcher Jumped alx feet to the right
as that Indian threw th ball. It went
Ilk lightning right Into th eatober'a
hands. Th eoocd baseman had run
up behind th pltchr and took th
throw from th catcher. Of course th
runner on third tried to run In on thla
throw, but back cam th ball ahad
of him and h waa out!
-Then In an instant th mighty
crowd saw that New York had been
ambushed. It waa a great trick, and
played so accurately and quickly and
with such daring that ren the Phila
delphia "fans' were mind paralysed and
fotgot to cheer. Tb llenc which fol
lowed the Indian to the player bench
waa th most eloquent trlbut of th
day. And It happened, as every 'sport
already knows, that New York finally
won two to on. The needed runs were
made on mighty hits by an Indian and
an Irishman and the great crowd filed
out and hom to talk It orer.
I wish I could toll my children how
some Cap Cod Yankee had a hand In
it. but too many of them are occupied
In telling what they or their ancestors
used to do. 1 think the ram wa In
rented and dereljped by Yankees, and
that they hare made most money out
of It. Probably Capo Cod Is willing to
rest content wrth this and let th oth
ers handle the ball. I am ready to ad
mit w ought to hare been home pick
ing apples, but w saw th garnet and
tb apple harvest will go better to pay
for It-
Salem Declslrely Beaten by Score
of 18 to'0.
For th second time thla season.

Recvnt Death of Champion' Father

Cause of Hesitancy on Making

All y of th tennla world ewltehed
from America toward Nw Zealand on
Wednesday, when the American team
of challenger for th Darl trophy
sailed away for Chrtstchurch from
Vancouver. B C. on th good hlp
Zealandla. William A. Lamed. Maurice
K. McLoughlln ana neoi wnui,
at first announced, mad up the team
which goo to foreign shore bent on
..-.. I . with the famous CUP now
long held by th Australian.
When MoLoughlin passea inr
Portland and wa entertained by Port
land tennl man at th Irvlngton club
for th day. h expressed utmost con
fidence In tho ability of th present
American, team, the strongest possible,
to bring back the laurl long eought.
Though at that time b did not
know that Larned ' would b In the
party he expressed the wish that ha
would, for h acknowledge the Na
tional champion the atrongeat tennla
man th game ever produced, and Mo
Loughltn ought to know, for h baa met
not a few of them In hla day. which la
far from being over yet.
Actloa Fortmnate for America.
It waa fortunate for tha Americana
that Larned could get away after even
declaring, as he confidently bellev.d
st th tlm. that buslnes matter
would keep him here In America
through the Winter. It develop that
ther vaa no reaaon other than per
sonal why Larned, after declaring h
would mak th trip, decided not to go.
Larned- father reoently died and
left a large tat of which th ten
nis champion 1 executor. Thla fact
coupled, of course, with the extended
tlm of keeping In training up to tho
t m et for th play In New Zealand.
m?de th. champion feel that h .could
not get away, and ha thua gar busi
ness reason, a. th. cans Gossip In
the East had It that Larned had fallen
out with those making '
for the American, and that for thl.
reason he would not b. .een in the

figure in th. single, for Australia. In
th. flrat alnglea matches Larned w
oppose Brook, and McLoughlln will
meet Heath. McLoughlln and Wright
probably will play together in th. dou
ble, match. Th. Australian team ha.
not yet been announced for tha dou

appear at this dlstanc to ba th. strong

American tennl. follower, har. It
f'gured that Larned will win two of
th. singles matches and that McLough

Should McLoughlln fall to win either of
Ma matches, however, tha American
team will UI1 bar a good chanc of
returning with th championship, as
Wright and McLoughlln will mak. a
atrong combination In th. doubles.
IWpV Hard rVaJck t Flgar.
Opinions regarding th outcome of
th matche. ar based on th r.lativ.
showing of th British player agaln.t
Wilding In England and McLoughlln
and Larned here. Dixon, th. leading
Prltlsh player, dlspced of Wilding
during th. past aaon In Kngland. In
the East this year both McLoughlln
and Larned won from Dixon and Bea
mish, the English pleyera. A in any
other .port, "dope" cannot b. relied
upon In tennl. and thla -dope" doe.
not afford th. best possible lln. clth.r.
Dixon played Larned to a flre-t match
and In th fifth aet had a commanding
,a, i'ivdrnr'?frrt
I ' e, r 1
' ?
lead of S-t and 10-15. Then Larn.d
ran th. aet out.
McLoughlln defeated Dixon with
a-reater eas than did Larned, whll
Larned won from McLoughlln In three
straight Beta In the challenge match
for th. American championship. That
shows lust how reliable "dope" Is. It Is
practically conceded her. and tn Eng
land that Larned I. th. greatest tennl.
play.r In th. world at present, though
In Australia, of cour.e. they think th.
aame of Brookes. McLoughlln ha.
play.d against both men and think,
that Larned will har little troubl.
disposing of tha Australian champion.
McLoughlln went over to Australia
In lt09. and at that tlm he waa a
comparatlre norlce. He made good
showings against both Brooke, and
Wilding, though ha wa. beaten by both
of them. With two year additional
experience he figure, to have an equal
chanc with cither of th Australian
cracks. Larned' coaching on th. trip
will also, help him considerably.
Thar 1. perhaps no batter double,
player In th. world than Wright. He
excel, at this style of play. His head
work 1. largely responsible for hi.
success In doubles. He 1. a left-hander
with considerable speed and at the same
tlm. he 1. accurat. In his stroke.. The
Australian, will find McLoughlln and
Wright a hard team to defeat.

Talked Of Schedule In New
York Rankles Leaders In
Ring Circles.
Tommy Ryan Tells of Mm tn Which
Dnnkhorst Meet. Fltxstmmon
and Falls Before Punch of
Australian In First Bonnd.
Several unexpected things ar. likely
to result from th. appointment of th.
state boxing commission In New Tork.
For Instance. Jak Skelly. official ref
eree, has compiled a revision of th.
recognized weights, which he has ar
dent hopes of seeing adopted.
Briefly, Skelly would change the ban
tam limit to 110 pounds, the feather to
120, the light to 1S5 and the mlddl. to
165. He also provides for a light-heavy,
weight poundage, 17J. and bring, the
welter up to 144.
What chance there Is of Skelly" pet
scheme being accepted remain to b.
seen. There 1. really no way of com
pelling th boxer, to change the pres
ent .tandard. It all depends on th.
title-holder and th. near-top-notchers.
Should they see fit to accede to his re
quest, his revision would Jump Into
varus; otherwise It would take years
to effect a recognized readjustment.
It la oertaln that Champion Ad Wol
gast would never entertain the 185
pound Idea. The Michigan Wildcat
usually 1. under 133 pounds when he
strip to defend his title, and it would
be folly for him to consent to anyone
coming Into the ring at a higher weight
than th present one.
Mlddlerrelghta Would Slag.
With Abe Attell It Is different. Th.
featherweight king might weloome such
a change. There is little doubt but that
he could make 120 pounds and be
strong. The hardest battle he ever
fought was with Owen Moran. Had the
limit ham 120 nounds In those days, the
EngllBh feather wouldn't have stood a
ghost of a show.
Sammy Langford. Billy Papk et al.
vnuM hv from lowering the middle
weight notch, a. Henry Berry T-ould
from a high ball. But few of the mid
dleweight, oan scale lower man 100
nnii hn in ne-htlnsr condition.
Mention of Langford'. weight recalls
the fact that the Boston "bono crusher"
was able to make 133 pounds in 1903.
There have been many protests
against placing a llght-hearywelght
limit. It is said that anyone over 160
pounds Is big enough to fight the world.
Newspaper Men I'leased.
Freaks of th. ring are many and
Tommy Ryan recalled one the other
night that merit, rank wun me irean
lest. The story deals with the "life,
battles and career" of Ed Dunkhorst,
and particularly with his first bid for
the heavyweight crown. He has been
bidding more or less ever since, but
tho occasion referred to was the only
I time he ever got a crack at a near
"It was while I was training Jen-
ries for his fight with Corbett at Coney
Island," said the Multnomah Club In
structor. "Jeff wanted a husky young
fellow to maul and wrestle with, so i
got Dunkhorst, a stripling of 260
pounds from Syracuse. The only ex
perience he ever had was helping mo
In m v training.
"Well, ho mad. ruch a hit with the
newspaper men tho day h. arrived that
all had something to say about bim.
I told them I was going to make a
phnmnlon out of him.
"Th next day I receivea a Telegram
from a Brooklyn club asking If my
man would fight Fitzslmmons.
"Can you Imagine it? A novice fight
ing the man next to th. champtonf
"I thought soma one was trying to
kid' me, so I wired baok that Dunk
horst would fight the Sultan of Zulu
if he wa. given S1000 in advance. They
fell for It, Article, were signed.
Fits I Surprlaed.
"The night of th. fight came. After
much persuasion I Induced the pro
moters to fork over th. 31000, on the
plea that Dunkhorst wa. a funny chap
and might decide to walk out of the
pavilion any minute if he wasn't given
his guarantee.
"It came time to fight I was afraid
that I would bo mobbed, for I didn't
think Dunk' would last 10 seconds.
Before the men were called to th.
center I told him to look real savage
Ilk. and ask Fits how he wanted to
fight, with clean break, or what.
"Dunkhorst did. It surprised me: It
surprised Fitz. In fact, poor old Bob
was so flabbergasted he didn't know
what to say. He walked up to the
lanky Australian and spoke hi. little
speech in the most approved fashion.
Fltz didn't know what to say.
VWelL what's It going to her de
manded Dunkhorst. TV e haven't got
all night to stick around here! I want
to beat you up and get out.'
"Fits finally stammered that any
thing would suit him, whereupon Dunk
horst said that they would hit any
time they felt like It.
First Blow I Surprise.
"The gong sounded for the first
round. On rushed Dunkhorst like a
Hon. crouching low like Jeff. In a min
ute he had Fits on the rope, and the
crowd out loose. Dunk got him Into a
corner. In attempting to get out, Fltx
fainted with his left for th. head and
suddenly shifted his right Into Dunk
horst's mldrift. It was such a blow as
beat Corbett at Carson. Down went
th. budding champion and th. look on
hla face denoted a painful surprise. He
weathered the storm until the bell
clanged, however, and wobbled to his
"He complained of being hurt. He
wanted to quit, I coaxed him into tak
ing another whirl and he ran out to
meet hi. opponent as If nothing had
happened. It got Fltx's goat. He
hugged and clinched and hugged some
more. Breaking from one of the many
waltzes. Dunkhorst cut loose and
crossed Fitx flush on the chin. If
there had been any steam behind his
punch the paper, would have been hail
ing a new champion next morning. But
there wasn't. It only dazed Fits. H.
recovered quickly.
"Thus far Fits had been shooting all
hla punches toward the waist line, and
Dunk" guarded that portion of hla an
atomy sealously. Fits started a left
lead for "Dunk's tender spot and down
went the elephant's guard. Fltx's left
halted when half way; his feet shifted
qulcklv. ana his right hand shot to
Dunkh'orsfs Jaw like a flash. Thud!
Down went 260 pounds of the pride of
Money First Thought.
"Next morning there were pictures
printed of six men oarrying him to his

Paclflo showed a decided Improve

Bryant, of Pacific, who made end runs

principal stockholders In the
San Francisco club, deny positively
that they are contemplating the secur
ing of a successor to Danny Long, the
San Francisco scribes are pouring out
red-hot shots declaring Long's tenure
as manager of the Seals has ended.
The excitable scribes admit that
Ewlng and Ish maintain that there will
be no change, but they rattle off yards
of guff explaining the reason why a
successor Is needed, and it -is not
beyond the bounds of possibility that
he will be supplanted.
If Cal Ewlng and Ish can be made
to see the advantages of making a
change In the Seal line-up. there is
every reason in the world to figure
that club as a formidable contender
for the honors next season. That club
never will be with D. Long at the
helm, for he has so "unpopularlzed"
himself with the players that scarcely
one of the Seals will speak to him, and
all of them openly express the opinion
that they would be delighted to play
elsewhere as long as Long is retained
as manager.

returned there was npt a single speci

the catcher had helped themselves to
the rabbits without-the formality of
asking permission. Thomas spied a
stranger bearing a pair of rabbits
which he believed belonged to his bag,
and accosted the person with the
query, "Where did you get those rab
bits." "They were part of Tommy Thomas's
bag." replied the fellow.
"Well. I'm Tommy Thomas," asserted
the catcher.
"What difference does that make?"
Impudently replied the custodian of
the rabbits, and after some argument
Thomas was compelled to pay two bits

vehemently charged Gilmour Do

about to sound for hostilities In the
annual game between the two institu

If Coach Dolan's huskies used chloro
form, the formula went boomerang.
The events of the ensuing 60 minutes
proved that, for the University of
Washington players literally swarmed
over their smaller opponents and won
by a score of 34 to 0, 12 polnta worse
than in 1910.
Everybody was startled at th. one

Dolan Praises Washington.
"The boys fought Ilk demons for
every lrch, but they were simply over
powered by superior weight. Washing
ton's eleven is stronger. In my Judg
ment, than the team Doble led to the
championship last season."
Washington's first touchdown came
after an exhibition of superb football,
the locals plowing 90 yards down the
field without a break. Mucklestone,
Sparger and Wand shot through the
Oregon Aggies' defense as though pro
jected from a torpedo tube.
Jack Patton recovered a fumble only
five yards from the line on the second
score and Walter Wand carried it
across. Coylo kicked this goal. Score,
11 to 0.
The Corvallis scrappers howled vig
orously on the third touchdown. Coyle
had punted over Quarterback Reynold's
head and the 126-pound midget tore
back after the ball. Field Judge Car
ver ruled that the oval hit him before
crossing the last time and as Bliss, a
Washington man, fell on the ball, the
touchdown was allowed. Coyle kicked

For the Oregon Aggies. Enberg, Jes

although all the boys seemed working
like Trojans. Dolan's men had few
opportunities to show what they had
offensively and everything that was
tried went the route of a pigeon's egg

Mr. and Mrs. Louis Lamar, recently
from Portland, where they were mar

slavery here. Both were fined 50 each
on a minor charge, and the authorities
will look up the case further with a
view to convicting Lamar for a long

store here three weeks ago, and It is
the contention of Chief of Police Kraby
that they have been using it aa a,
