If the Portland Uncle Sams wio tho
Pacific Coast hockey championship
and Friday's brilliant 6-1 win over
Vancouver gives them quite a nice lit
tle lead there may be a world's cham
pionship series after all.
E. H. Savage, manager of the port
land septet, returned yesterday with
his team from British Columbia and
made this announcement.
There are several sthmbling block
in the way yet. but it is believed they
will be removed by the middle of
March, when the National Hockey As
sociation schedule ends. .
Two League at War.
Chief among these is the fact that
the two leagues are at war with each
other and have been stealing each
other's players. Thus far the Eastern
ers have received the most punishment
through the purloining of the entire.
Toronto team, now wearing Se.attle
colors. In view of this it is 'more than
likely that the Eastern Canada major
circuit will be glad to call off hostili
ties and engage in a world's series.
The series will be played in Eastern
Canada; if at all, because it is the
Westerners' turn to go East. Last year
Ottawa came West to Vancouver and
took a world's championship beating.
Montreal Leading League.
"At present the Wanderers of Mont
real are leading the National Hockey
League," said Mr. Savage, last night.
"Quebec and Ottawa are close behind
and I believe Ottawa will win the flag.
Ottawa beat Quebec 4-0 on Wednesday
Quebec and Ottawa play on a lake and
I believe the ice will last until the first
week of April and permit a world's
series. Their schedule closes March IS.
Even if the lake ice melts, however, wc
could play the scries in the Montreal
The only negotiations conducted thus
far towards bringing the Eastern arid
Western major associations together
were Instigated by the trustees of tho
.Stanley cup. This cup, emblematic of
the world's title. Is held by Vancouver.
The Eastern association is said to have
agreed with the trusteeas to play a series
and Frank Patrick, the president of tho
Coast circuit, likely will give his reply
within the next fortnight.
Coast Likely to Agree.
According to Mr. Savage the Cont
League will agree to the series because,
of the good it will do hockey every
where. Eddie Oatman, the captain of
the Portland club, doesn't think there
is a chance for Vancouver to beat Port
land out of the pennant and he is eager
to make the world's series trip East.
Eddie, by tho way, is packing around
a lame shoulder received in Friday's
game at Vancouver. ,
The next hockey game will be the
big event of the year on Tuesday night
when the Vancouvers will endeavor to
put a crimp in the Portland pennant
aspirations. If the weather moderates
Manager Savage predicts a 6000 house.
