Baseball's cosmopolitan character is exemplified ably and fully by the Sacramento Coast League Club, which finishes a week's series in Portland this afternoon.
Wolverton has lined up under his standards no less than six different nationalities. If they were paid for talking they would land the Coast League gonfalon hands down
Sacramento boasts of the only Hawaiian and Spanish ballplayers In the Pacific Coast League, and, perhaps, the only Hawaiian In big league ball in America. Frank Arellanes, pitcher
is of pure Castllian descent, while Johnny "Williams, another twlrler, nails from Honolulu. . He has some English blood in his veins. "- '
Kenworthy represents the English on the Senatorial roster, although Wolverton and Moran also come of English stock away back.
Of Irish and German there are plenty. Jimmy Lewis, Tom Tennant and Klnsella all have the map of Erin plastered across their physiognomies. Klawitter, Reitmayer and Van
Burerf are German. Wolverton and several of the remaining Senators claim America as their foster mother.
Winning Streak Follows Reported Throwing to Winds of Caution and
Inside Baseball Knowledge, by Manager McCredie.
STORY on Walter McCredie that
is worthy repeating Is going
the rounds in California, al
though the Portland Coast League man
ager merely smiles when quizzed as to
Its veracity.
The local Spoonbills, Beavers or
whatever you are a mind to call them.
were down near the cellar when they
left home over a fortnight ago aboard
train for California. McCredie nat
urally was puckered in the mouth, and
he is credited with calling his men to
gether in the parlor car and thus ad
dressing them:
"I. want you fellows to understand
that I don't care a blankety blank
whoop what the blazes you do. Chase
the bright lighds all you want. Throw
all your Inside baseball knowledge Into
a grip and go out and win some ball
games. Go up there at bat and slash
and cut at the ball like a bunch of
school kids, and maybe we can win
a few games. I am-paying you all good
money and have spent a lot of money
gathering you together. Now you are
not winning and I am being blamed.
"Chase yourselves around the block.
Make this a Joy club for all I care.
You can't do worse."
Now, those may not have been Mac's
exact words. And they probably weren't,
because he has always been bitterly
opposed .to the so-called Joyful pro
pensities of various ball nines and In
dividuals with whom business had
brought him in contact. There may
have been more expletives and ejacu
lations in McCredie's brief tirade. But
the sum and substance of it was that
"Mac" was disgusted and told the boys
so in pointed diction.
History does not record whether the
players followed McCredie's instruc
tions, but the percentage column re
veals that the Beavers won 11 out of 16
games on the road trip and returned
home in the first division only a few
games from the top and a real pennant
Yes indeed, this . is a queer hemis
UD ANDERSON'S defeat by Leach
Cross July 4 at Vernon proved
the prime pugilistic boomerang of
the year along the Pacific Coast. Bud
was supposed to be about as safe to
fool with as an unloaded revolver. No
body ever had the temerity to suggest
that the Vancouver boy possessed any
cleverness to speak of, but he was
credited with a kick in either hand and
a backfire calculated to neutralize all
science in the books.
As a matter of fact had Buddy been
matched against a clever fighter of
the Ritchie-Rivers type his chances
would have been infinitely better than
against a slugger of the Cross caliber,
a rough and rugged veteran admittedly
quicker and shiftier, just as awkward
and as hard a biffer.
Cross did not outbox Anderson, if we
are to Judge from the press reports
from the ringside. -He simply beat him
to every punch by more experienced
timing, and when Anderson did turn his
occasional 13-inch battery loose, he
found his target better able to assiml
late the punishment than he himself
was able to bear.
There are those who condemn Ander
son's manager for pushing him ahead
too fast. Perhaps there is some Justin
cation In the criticism. But that same
criticism was voiced before the Knock
out Brown battles, when Buddy brought
home the bacon amidst wild huzzas.
Anderson is not down and out yet, as
many of his, former friends seem to be
lieve. This same Cross lad. It will be
recalled by those pugilistically well
inrormea, went the kndekout route
when he was breaking his first division
shell. Cross left New York and trav
eled all the way to San Francisco to
meet Dick Hyland, and "Fighting Dick'
put him to sleep in 41 rounds at Colma,
June 26, 1909.
Reverse comes to everybody. Samson
lost his hair and then came back; Bat
Nelson lost to Gans and then became
champion; Ritchie lost to Welsh and
then won the title;' Roosevelt lost his
pajamas and then proved total abstain
ance. Sic Semper!
Anderson may have to start his long
climb all over again, but we all know
ne nas the goods to be in the very
front ranks with Ritchie, Rivers, Welsh,
Cross, Britton and McFarland. He has
proved that in all his fights, and If
experience is what Bud lacks it will be
only a matter of another year before
he will be back as a headllner, snap
ping at the shanks of the greatest
potentates of the prize ring.
HILB the Thames and Poueh-
keepsie regattas are almost an
cient "history, so- far as news
values go, an interested querant asks
why Harvard and Yale do not row in
the four and eight-oared Poughkeepsle
regatta against the other colleges of
the East.
Just why the two bier- universities
fight shy of the crews from the rival
institutions, they themselves know best.
But a deadly parallel on the times of
the various events at the New London
and Poughkeepsle regattas, suggests
that both Yale and Harvard are wise
in padlocking their prestige behind the
sham of commoness.
The deadly parallel on timing shows
that every one of the eight-oared crews
in the Poughkeepsle race would have
beaten Yale or Harvard. After the
two leaders, which will be used for
comparison, comes Washington, 19:33;
Wisconsin, 19:36; Columbia, 19:38; Penn
sylvania, 20:111-5.
Four of the six crews In the four
oared race would have beaten Harvard,
and all that finished would have beaten
Yale. Cornell, Syracuse, Wisconsin,
Pennsylvania and Columbia freshmen
would have beaten both the Crimson
and Bulldog freshles.

Present Season to Be Better Finan
cially Than Last Year in AH
Leagues, Thinks Proctor. ' ,
That the talk which has been preva
lent during the past year to the effect
that baseball is gping back and that It
has reached the height of its popular
ity is absolutely baseless, and that the
game Is more successful and better ap
preciated than ever, is the contention
of Jack Proctor, one of the baseball au
thorities, -writing for the Chicago Trib
une. .
Proctor admits that 1912 was an off
year, but he goes on to show that the
first months of the 1913 season more
than counterbalance the weak finances
of last year.
If the officials of the major leagues
may be believed, 1913 shows marked
improvement over several of the past
years. The American League Is far
ahead of Its corresponding receipts of
last year, while the National League
has made up in some cities what it haa
lost In others.
, The American Association also shows
a good gain, and this is one of the
leagues which was reported as some
what under the weather last year.
In the major leagues it becomes more
apparent each year that the winning
teams are the real money-makers. In
former years the fans turned out to
see the game for itself, but now the
demand is for the home team to be a
consistent winner.
The same seems to be applicable to
the Coast League and other minors,
those teams which iare at the bottom
of the ladder being far behind the lead
ers as money-makers.
He also goes on to show that the
fans In the minor leagues really get
more for their money than the fans In
the majors. In the big leagues, teams
move very slowly from one, end of the
scale to the other.
Such reverses as nave taken place In
the Coast League are very scarce in
deed. The fan at the big games has
more to base his prediction on, accord
ing to Proctor, than the minor league
follower, and as & -result the uncer
tainty of the smaller leagues makes it
really better appreciated.

Western Tri-State to Begin
Second Series All Even.
Walla Walla, Pennant Winner of
First Half, to Play Post-Season
Series With Flag Winners
of Second Race.
BOISK, Idaho, July 5. (Special.)
The Western Trl-State - League will
close the first half of its official sched
ule tomorrow, and Tuesday will open
a new one. The league opened with
six clubs. Today it is composed of
four, .two of the six clubs that started
Baker and La Grande having
dropped out. To the Bears of Walla
Walla is given the high percentage
average of the first half of the season,
for they finish almost 100 points ahead
of the other teams in the league.
The league has developed some re
markably fast material that will go
into faster company and for whose dis
posal negotiations are now on. Frlene,
Gard and Reams will be sold by Boise
to Northwestern League clubs, while
"Big" Steve Melter, the ex-Northwestern
League pitcher, ' who started with
Spokane, but .was released ' and joined
Boise, is now being .dickered for. A
price of $1000 has" been placed on Mel
ter by the JSoise management.
Scouts Look Over Mayers.
It is understood thaf Jlmmle Rich
ardson, local scout for a higher class
league. Is negotiating for the big
pitcher. Melter loeks good and has
been going fine ' since the season
opened. Harmon, center fielder;
Lundstrum, shortstop; Martini. left
fielder, and Tiny ieonard, the big
raised-ball pitching artist with' the
Bears, will be sold. Terry McKune,
manager of the Pendleton Bucks, is
confident of getting good money for
Jamleson, the ex-La Grande pitching
star, signed when that club blew up,
and for Augustus, third baseman; Lo
dell, f irst-sacker, and Rader, shortstop.
McKune also signed carl King, ex
manager of . the La- Grande club as
utility catcher and fielder. King finds
it more profitable playing than lending
money as manager to ballplayers.
Byrnes, the Bucks' catcher, was re
leased by the Pendleton management.
Grover is the saleable man with the
North Yakima tribe.
The new schedule for the second half
of the season has been perfected. It
goes into effect next Tuesday, when
the four clubs in the league start the
second lap with even percentages in
a race for honors.
Sevf Schedule Framed. opens next Thursday at Boise
with the Bucks, while North Yakima
opens at Walla Walla. The four clubs
are- evenly matched, and the last lap
in the race will be far more interest
ing than the first. Should any one of
the three other clubs in the league win
the high standing in the second" half
of the pennant race. It qualifies to
meet Walla Walla In a series of seven
games to decide the championship. The
series for each week, as arranged by
the new schedule, the first to open
next Tuesday, follows:
July 8 to 13 Pendleton at Boise,
Walla Walla at North Yakima.
July 15 to 20 Walla Walla at Pen
dleton, Boise at North Yakima.
July 22 to 27 North Yakima at Pen
dleton, Boise at Walla Walla. '
July 29 to August 3 North Yakima
at Boise, Pendleton at Walla Walla.

Stovall Has Browns on Move.
George T. Stovall, now manager of
the St. Louis Browns, has certainly
"grabbed things by the tail" to get to
his present place of prominence. He
is now given credit for moving the
Browns from the bottom of the league,
where it had been for quite a while.
In.. 1903 Stovall had an awful time
Landing a Job.' He played, with five
different teams of minor leagues and
did not seem to fit well. In 1904 he
asked every manager of the American
Association for a trial, but tailed to
get a reply from any of them. He did
get a Job in one ot the other leagues
and accepted with the determination to
"show somebody up." Now looks as
if he did.

Above, In brief, may be summarized
the most noteworthy pitching of the
Northwestern League season to and
Including the games of July 1.
The work of about four of the lot
stands out like a sore thumb. "Iron
Man" McGinnity (who would better he
watching out or some major leacrue
club will draft him). Southpaw Stanley,
Charley Schmutz and "Weiser" Dell.
McGinnity has taken part in no
fewer than 36 games of Tacomas' 79,
and has pitched a little more than 30
per cent of the total number of inningrs
played by his team. Of course, thev
can get hits off the "Iron Man" but
runs? and walks? Only 33 of the 860
men who have faced him took free
transportation, or 3.8 per cent.
Stanley leads all pitchers In the
number of swabs with the whitewash
brush, and has held hits and runs down
to a skinny margin. Hynes' record is
impressive, but he has been in condi- .
tion so little of the time as to impair
his real usefulness to the Portland
Dell leads in strikeouts, and at the
same time has given the greatest num
ber of bases on balls. Narveson is the
league's kingpin bean ball artist.
There have been 1 casualties in the
games the wild-cat Swede has worked
for Victoria. While Hynes has nom
inally the best wining percentage, the
.-real honor belongs to Glpe of Seattle,
who has been on the bench two weeka
with a sore arm.
Meek has dropped below the .400 bat.
ting mark, but still continues to be the
league's leader by a wide margin.
Young Mclvor keeps oa plunking out
hits in the few games he works. Kip
pert is slumping.

Four Men Threatened With (Jetting
Blue Envelopes.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 5. (Special.)
Rumor has it that a big shakeup Is
impending in the Oaklaftd club. It i-4
said that the blue slip will be passed
next week to Gregory. Crisp, Guest and
Schlrm, with Cy Parkin hanging to his
job by an eyelash.
Gregory has gone back to-such an ex.
tent that he is absolutely a detriment
to the club. Crisp has proved a joke a.
a catcher, while Guest has not helpe.d
much in his role of utility infielder.
Schirm came here highly "touted" and
he has shown that he knows baseball.
But he has been bothered constantly by
"charley horse," his throwing arm is
woefully weak and he has not been able
to play up to expectations.
Several new men are in sight who. it
Is believed, will strengthen up the club
