SAX FRANCISCO, June 26. (Spe
clal.) Proving just as adept at losing
doubleheaders as the Beavers are at
winning such sessions, San Francisco
took a slump today that brought the
Seals up with a jolt when they finally
xeallzed what had happened.
Pitching that was unreliable Is chief
ly the answer for the double upset, al
though the fielding at critical stages
-was anything but of a brilliant nature.
Elliott Dent was picked for lacing
number one and he responded nobly.
Even two homers In that game by
Bobby Jones couldn't prevent Portland
from staging a 6-to-4 win.
Btann Slaughter Pitcher.
The second affair was even worse.
Reisigl, who opened up, and Jack Kill!
lay, who followed, were punched to the
queen's taste for all manner of hits
and runs. Finally Hookem Smith had
to be called upon to stop the slaughter,
which ended with the visitors on the
right side of 9 to 6.
Cent had pitched hitleea ball for three
innings, but he got his -with trimmings
In the fourth. He landed the first bat
ter. Derrick. Then came the deluge.
Stumpf swatted into center and Bates
to right. Hillyard sailed a drive over
the pitcher's head into center for the
lirst of the runs. Fisher shifted with
a left field single and Bates came home.
Speas forced Gus and Leber walked,
filling the bases. Keefe fanned, but
the score was tied, the Seals having
made two In the second on Corhan's
walk and Jones' home run.

It all happned with two' down In

and Fisher to be retired before he
knocked, the ball over the fence. Lober
doubled into lert and Keefe beat one
out down to third. A two-sacker by
Davis against the fence sent along Lo
ber for a score, and when Meloan mis
Judged Derrick's liner it gave the latter
a two-ply hit, and the Beavers two
more runs. The Seals rallied in their
half, but to the extent of two tallies
In the second game the Beavers took
a three-run lead in the Eecond chapter,
and kept on in front thereafter.
Bates smashed into center and be
tween a wild pitch and a steal, hied
himself to second. Hillyard and Fish
er flied to the outfielders, but a waik
for Speas with Lober's single into right
tallied the first. Evans sent a fly to
right that Meloan dropped as promptly
as he caught it. In consequence, the
Kortherners were three runs to the
good. Incidentally they scored two

for Changed Views.
"Im for the Portland Beavers. Mac
has them fighting like tigers." So said
James J. Richardson, well-known ball
scout, yesterday upon his return from
a fortnight's trip to the iSan Francisco
"AH the boys are playing great ball,
and the local fans will see a different
team when they return Tuesday after
noon. The San Francisco Post came
out early in the week and said that
Portland was out of the race and that
the fight from now on would be be
tween Los Angeles, San Francisco and
Salt Lake. Perhaps some of them will
think differently after this series."
Mr. Richardson, who is with a local
sporting goods house, saw Benny Hen
derson in the south, and Benny was
looking fine. He said he had not been
off the aqua cart for nearly three
Judge McCredie also returned yester
day from the South, but he had little
or no news to give out.
"Nothing much to say," said he. "The
league meeting didn't amount to much.
We talked over the proposed eight
team expansion question, but there
seemed to be some opposition on ac
count of the weather up here. Yester
day all the teams gave up their receipts
to Happy Hogan. Hap, it develops, was
In debt, but this money from us goes
to the widow, not to his creditors."
The Portland ball magnate said they
had no 'candidate in sight for the in
field utility job left vacant by the re
lease of Milton Reed.
"For the present Lober and Speas
are available," said he. "We are down
to 17 men and will not add another un
less we release a pitcher. I guess Wal
ter is having a hard Job deciding on his
pitching selections. Rube Evans has
not been going good yet, although I
see he won a game today."

COBB STORY DENIED
President Johnson Brands
Tipping Charges as False.
TALE CALLED BOLD FAKE
American League Chief Says He Has
Xbt Threatened to 'Drive Ty Out
of Baseball for Yarn and Has
Xo Intention to Do So.
NEW YORK, June 26. (Special.)
Before leaving here recently to witness
the Giants and Tigers play an exhibi
tion game in Toledo. Ban Johnson,
president of the American League,
gave out an interview to one of the
local papers that puts an altogether
different aspect on the Ty Cobb story
regarding the signal stealing of a
certain former minor league manager
now in the big leagues."
The statement that appeared In the
local paper quoting Mr. Johnson fol
lows: "While I -was In Washington an in
terview appeared In several papers
which made me say that I would drive
Ty Cobb out of the American League
and organized baseball, for allowing
his name to appear over a story that
signal tipping methods had been em
ployed by a "former minor league man
ager now in charge of a major league
"In the first place I never gave out
such an interview. It was written and
published entirely without my knowl
edge or consent. I know the reporter
who wrote the story and I cannot
understand why he went to such ex
tremes. The Interview was the boldest
kind of a fake and prompted much un
Statement Declared I'ntore
"In the second place I never have
seen the article which -appeared in
several publications under Cobb's sig
nature. I heard about it after it had
been printed, but I do not know
whether Cobb was the real author of
it or not. It was most unfair to make
me say that I would drive Cobb out
of baseball for such a comparatively
trivial offense. The story which he
is supposed to have written was based
on hearsay and, in fact, was abso
"There has been no signal tipping
at wnite ox Park this year or any
other year and Manager Rowland has
handled the team with absolute
squareness. The stories of signal tip
ping, which provided a basis for the
Cobb yarn, were originated by some
minor league manager or player who
was jealous of Rowland's success. If
there had been an ounce of truth in
these malicious reports it seems to me
that the .Chicago newspapers would
have obtained - the facts and I would
have been asked to make a- thorough
"The Chicago papers did not print
these unfair charges because they
knew only too well that Charles A.
"Comiskey would not allow such un-
sportsmaslike methods at his park.
Comiskey has been in baseball all his
life and he enjoys the respect and
confidence of the baseball public all
over the country. For that reason the
stories of signal tipping are unjust
Storlea Called Absurd.
Mr. Johnson, therefore, has been
ridiculed and censured for something
that he never said. It wasn't so very
long ago that he was misquoted in
Boston to the effect that he had
opened negotiations with the Federal
League for peace in the baseball world.
When the American League boss was
asked to discuss the situation as it ap
plies to the Federal League he re
marked: "I said In Chicago that I thought the
Federal League would do well to quit
now rather than go on losing money
in & hopeless baseball venture. I gave
out this statement for a purpose which
I cannot discuss now. But it is true
that the Federal League games are not
drawing. The baseball public has lost
11 interest in that circuit and it is
simply suicidal for the Feds to con
tinue. You can say that there is no
idea in organized baseball to arrange
a compromise. We have the enemy
beaten to a standstill, so why call the
fight off at this stage of the proceed
"Does your trip East mean any
thing important?" he was asked.
I have talked with Colonel Rup-
pert and Captain Huston about their
proposed new ball park," replied Mr.
Johnson. "I also have Inspected about
half a dozen pieces of property which
they are considering. Some of them
are on Manhattan Island and others
in the Bronx and Queens, but no de
cision will be reached for some time."
"Don't you believe that the Yan
kees should be strengthened in view
of the unusual public Interest in them
"Yes, the team needs several first-
class players and I am doing my best
to get them for Messrs. Ruppert and
Huston. But, of course, it is a diffi
cult matter to induce other club
owners to part with their stars."
"What about Home Run Baker?"
"I have nothing to say except that
I believe be" will not play ball this
year. The .breach between Baker and
Connie Mack sems to be wider than
ever and there is little hope that they
will patch up their differences."

was a clean single over second base.
STANFORD . IS INVITED
OREGO.V ASKS PALO ALTO FOR
Jlanager Tiffany Brand Washington
Excuses for Breaking; Contract
asi Being Untrue. -
EUGENE, Or., June 26. (Special.)
Negotiations for a football game be
tween Stanford University and the Uni
versity of Oregon, either in Portland or
in California, were entered into this
afternoon with the telegraphing of a
proposal this afternoon by Manager
Tiffany, .of Oregon, to the. Stanford
This is the date over which the Uni
versity of Washington broke a contract
with the University of Oregon to get a
game with the University of California,
and, say the angry fans of the Eugene
campus, to avoid meeting Oregon in
face of an expected defeat.
Manager Tiffany said this afternoon
that . he expected to make no further
negotiations with Washington for a
game next year, and he brands as ab
solutely false, in' rather harsh terms,
the attempted excuses of the Seattle
management published today.
"That date was as definite as was
any date arranged at the conference in
Spokane," declared Mr. Tiffany. "His
statement is untrue. I hadn't seen a
single man regarding arrangements be
fore arriving in Spokane, and the first
man I saw when I got there was
Younger, of Washington, trying before
the conference to buttonhole Dr. Stew
art, of O. A. C, on a combination for a
game. He was trying to get a date,
and they couldn't get together.
"Washington simply couldn't get any
games because the other conference
teams didn't want to play the Seattle
team, and now they're trying to find
"Washington didn't want to accept
the November date at first it wanted a
Thanksgiving date. But we had a date
with Multnomah and we did not intend
to break it. Before the end of the con- )
ierence wasnmgton definitely accepted
the November 6 day with us."

today to determine those best fitted to
represent the East in the National
championship competition to be held at
San Francisco August 6 and 7.
Most notable of the day's perform
ances was the mile run of Norman S.

with morning; rains, the former Brown
University track captain sped over
the mile in 4 minutes 15 1-5 seconds.
This was only 4-5 of a second behind

W. H. Meanix, of the Boston Athletic

in 54 4-5 seconds, two seconds better
than the world's record, but doubt as
to whether the hurdles were properly
arranged caused the referee to refuse
to let the time stand as a low mark.
The attempt of J. E. ("Ted") Mere
