Detroit Tigers, and Detroit has an
nounced that It will pull tha strlnc at

Cant, tha pitcher. Harry Wolverton
had to promise Bobby Jones, tha third
sacker. Walter Schmidt slned up for
this season only on tha promise that
tne San Francisco mnnaaement would
find him a lob with some bis; league
club for 11C
While the same promise haa appar
ently not been made to Corhan. the
shortstop Is really entitled to a chance
If any of the major leaauers are de
sirous of his services. To take away
that quartet means there will be some

It looks as if Block Is belnr groomed

Into the second spot In that dlrtalon.
It will be harder, however, to get
together what will practically ba a

of thinking. Is the ruling shortstop of
tha league this year. He la hitting
better than was tha case In 1JM. and
his fielding is above reproach. In fact,

With Jonea and Heilmann missing,
there will be oth-r problems as well,
and perhaps Boas .Iarrya hair will be
whiter than It Is at present before he
straightens out tha tangle. Rut suffi
cient unto the day Is the evil thereof,
and Just now It Is a tough enough
proposition to keep the club up In the
ra-e for honors.
Harry Heilmann will be out of the
game for at least another week, and
perhaps two. so goes tha report. As
was announced, he la suffering from
a growth In one of hie ears that seems
to have affected his nervous system.
Heilmann would appear to be ona of
the strongest chap In tha game. On
the contrary, he is quite subject to
minor ailments and haa to watch him

prises. rll Joined the Oaka with a
big reputation, but ha couldn't seem
to catch on with that team. Finally
and reluctantly tha club handed him
his release. Koerner loafed around for
a time and finally, when Ileatty waa
out of tha running, he was signed as a
hurry-up substitute. Since then Koer

happens to ba tha boss and tha fellow

Although the minor leaguera are
cheduled to hold their annual meeting
la San Francisco nest October, base
ball people do not look for a big at
tendance. Of course, the officera and
soma of the men wbo never miss a ses
sion will flock to this city, but it Is
surmised that the rank and file will
be conspicuous by their absence. For.
as you are aware, this has been a lean
year In baseball. Soma of the mag
natea haven't been able to keep their
beads above water, othera have been
lucky to stagger along, and none of
the cluba have done any good for them
selves. Salt Lakers are still talking about
Jimmy Toman, whom they can't see as
an umpire any way you look at tha
matter. It appears that not so long
ago Toman was an umpire In the Union
Association. Ha wasn't popular as an
Indicator man and the fana let him
know It. Of course, when thtnga start
ed to go wrong with the Bees, and To
man was on deck, they blamed him.
The playera are Inclined to ba con
servative, and while they say that
Jimmy Isn't the best umpire In tha
world, they admit that hia mistake

words, the errors of Judgment don't
affect the pennant rare to any extent.

died Immense business.
On her last voyage she sailed from
San Francisco April 14 and reached the
Columbia River at midnight April 18.
Her loss Is attributed to tha fact It
wag decided to proceed inside at once
without waiting for daylight.
In tha Marina History of the North-
wet. K. W. Wright, now manager of
the Port of Portland, wroli concerning
the wreck as follows:
-The decision waa fatal to the old
China liner, and within an hour she
had made her last port, grounding on
Sand Island, to be leisurely knocked
to pieces two daya later. The steamer
struck so lightly that few of those
aboard knew of the accident at the
time, and all were confident of soon
being again afloat. Unfortunately, the
steamer grounded at nearly nigh tide,
and tha next tide was so small that
she could not float off.
- -Her weight had also severely
strained the hull and disarranged the
machinery, the Injection pipes break
Ing when the sea fell and the feed
and bilge pumps also refusing to work,
permitting tha water to gam rapidly
when the tlda again flooded, and giv
ing the rising wavea a full sweep at
the house and upper works."
The Great Republic was Insured for
130.000 and the cargo for 2.0QO. and
tha value, of the freight, amounting to
1051 tons, waa 175.000. The wreck and
cargo were sold for $1:80 and 12500.
respectively. The vessel continued to
break up. and May 1 the entire hull
aft of tha walking beam broke away,
and for years the walking beam and
huge wheels were used as targets by
gunners at Fort Canby. Less than a
month after the loss of the Great Re
public the steamers Oregon and State
of California were placed In service.
There Is now said to ba 14 feet of
water over the wreck, and the placing

"Why, I've been on steamers on this
river seven years, and have often stood

when a boat ia landing or in picking up

vocation for a woman, and at times she
appeara ungainly, perhaps; but I was
six years on the steamer Lottie with
my husband, and for the last seven
months we have been on the John A.

a deckhand many times on our boats.
which naturally is different from the
labor of a 'roustabout' on the larger
boats, such as run In the passenger and
freight trade on the river.
There ia no question in my mind
that I can pasa the examination. In
fact. I think I ahould have 'gone up'
for a pilot's ticket Instead of a second-
class license. There are two women on
Puget Sound who have master's papers,
and in other parta of the United 'States
are women officers on vessels."
Navigation Called Easy.
Captain and Mrs. Burkholder have
been married 11 years. Her life In the
