Vancouver (B. C.) poloists put over
a brilliant victory yesterday afternoon
on the Waverly grounds with the
Portland Blues losing;, score 7 to 3V.

minutes after the game started. Tills
he picked out In his characteristic way
and carried it well down the field
with three accurate drives.

Snowden, of the Vancouver team, put
over one after a mass play In which
the entire squad figured.

both teams did considerable plashing.

Roscoe Fawcett Condemns American Boxers for Being Pikers Abroad.
BY ROSCOE FAWCETT.
BASEBALL'S recent capitulation to
the Players' Fraternity In the
case of Clarence Kraft of Brook
lyn, leads one to wonder where this
tight between the managers and the
playvs Is to end.
Personally. I haven't a guess as to
what the fut,ure will bring, but here's
one expert of fame. Fielder A. Jones,
former manager of tho Chicago White
Sox champions, xvho predicts abject
failure for the Fraternity unless it
chanRes its tactics.
This Fraternity stand In the Kraft
case was all right," commented Mr.
Jones yesterday. "If a man Is good
enough to play in AA leagues he should
be given a chance to do so In prefer
ence to the lower salaried A leagues.
"But." added the Northwestern
League president, with a note of warn
ing, "the Fraternity will have to change
Its tactics and really stand on a fair
foundation or It will wreck baseball
and Its own structure will go toppling
down with the magnates.
"The Fraternity should not counte
nance contract Jumping. There should
be no hemming and hawing about the
matter. Any player who breaks faith
with his employer ought to be auto
matically ousted from the Fraternity
and ought never to bo allowed In the
ranks of the organisation again."
Mr. Jones says baseball Is in a bad
tlx all over the Nation because of the
activities of the Federal League and
of the Players' Fraternity.
"Salaries are too high In practically
every league in the land," continued
the ex-Chlcagoan. "Kven the majors
have been going about their salary
raising in a haphaxard manner and
there will have to be some sort of a
readjustment before long.
"I dare say the Pacific Coast League
Is paying double the salary total to Its
teams that It was five years ago. I
don't see how these teams are going
to get by this bad season without big
ACCORDING to Ed. A. Goewey In
Leslie's Weekly, only the refusal
of Cleveland to waive on Clyde Waras
kept -the little Infielder from returning
to the Oakland club of tha Coast
League this Summer.
During the Spring series Wares
showed little batting strength and
Branch Rickey, manager of the St.
Louis Browns, decided to let him go
Every club In the league waived ex
cept the Naps and this wobbling out
fit offered quick cash for him and
Rickey decided to retain the ex-Coaster.
Now he Is doing sensational work at
short for the Browns and could not
be bought for $5000.
Too many youngsters are sent back
to the minors without sufficient trial,
because the managers don't care to
Jar up their lineups. We can mention
half a dosen cases here in the Pa
cific Coast League.
WHEN England took the relay race,
the golf and the polo champion,
ships away from us things began to
look rather Indigo, and, the loss of the
lightweight boxing title to a Welsh
man did not Improve the outlook.
But. the future is looking up.
With the yacht races, the Davis cup
tennis competitions and billiards our
standard bearers ought to be able to
wave a few tattered strands ere the
curtain drops for Winter.
No one of these is a lead pipe cinch,
however, except It be Hoppe'a billiard

score himself. That put Waverly still
further to the rear and the score was:

In the sixth Grosvenor crossed tha
Waverly goal again. Neither team did
anything In the seventh, and Vanoouer

as much as their riders.
The Waverly Whites will meet the
Vancouver team SI Monday afternoon
in the last game or-the series, as tha
Vancouver men practically have agreed
to ship their ponies back on Tuesday
morning, discounting the possibilities
of a third game.
"Vancouver has a wonderful team "
declared Victor Johnson, chairman of
the Waverly polo committee, at tha
finish of yesterdav's game. The plsv.
era are real gentlemen, and the ex
hlhitlon today was nothing hut of the
cleanest type of polo and with all pos
sible action In every minute"

was never so badly humiliated as by
the trio eif boxers who represented this
country during the recent bouts In
Every one of them squealed and
welched about the decision. Ritchie
was the gamest of them all. Willie
said he ought have had a draw but
ho gave Welsh full credit for his great
fight. But the other two would make
a man sick.
Moran waa licked to a fraiale but
he kicked and fussed about the deci
sion and capped this off by going over
to London and "exposing Johnson aa

baloo at his defeat, although experts
who witnessed the fight said he fouled
Carpentler not once but several times.
Not one of tho three, come down
to cases, took his medicine like a man.
Each had his howl about hla particu

practice In this country but It puts
America in the role of a piker when
Its representatives abroad pull that

JCDOE Thomas F. Graham, former
president of the Pacific Coast
League, Is the author of an Interesting
baseball contribution In tha August
number of Sunset magailne. recently
taken over by William Woodhaad.
Judge Graham's article Is entitled
"Putting Over tha Next Big League.'
Says Judge Graham In part:
"Judging the future by what tba
past has given us, baaeball on tha
Pacific Coast Is still In the Infancy
of Its development. . . . The next
step for the league will be Its axpan- -slon
Into an elghl-cluh league. At
present there are no cities with suffi
cient population to support these clubs.
"The Pacific Coast league eventual
ly will become a major league, with
equal standing with tha American ami
National leagues. The population la
coming, and, a decade hence, that pop
ulation will demand baseball In no re
spect Inferior to that of their brother
fans of the Atlantic seaboard."
Judge Graham adds that Walter Mc
Credle, of Portland, has sent mora
players to the big leagues than any
other manager and he goes on and
tells how Honug McArdle, former Seal,
conspired to keep out of the majors.
"Report that he was under tha ayes
of the scouts came to McArdle's eara,"
sayi the Judga. "and In consternation
he sought a friend for advice and sym
pathy. " 'I don't like to get In had bare.'
he mourned, "but I guess I've got to
boot a few of the easy ones till these
scouts quit. Nona of this big league
business for me. I like this league,
and I like this town, and I like my Job.
And If I'm satisfied they ought to let
me alone' ."
It sounds nice, but If thata all that
keeps the popular Mac out of the ma
Jors Ty Cobb's butcher battle Is all
that prevents Secretary Bryan from
sending the Oeorgla peach to repre
sent tue tin its navy at Pans
