DISTEMPER IS PREVALENT
Canines in Bear State Kennels Arts
Afflicted and Some Have Died.
Local Dogs Are Training
for Coming Contests.
BY HARRY M. GHATS OV.
S. Christenson. secretarv of th Pa
cific Coast Field Trials Club, who Is
in on j? rancisco. las written hero
that it is the intention of a nnmbev
of Californians to send their dogs
mis year to compete in the
pheasant trials in British. Columbia,
Washington and Oregon.
As the California trials will not take,
place until January. 1918, there will
be plenty of time in which tr wnrt h
dogs on quail in that state after the
uregon trials, which will take place in
September. Distemper has been preva
lent in some of the Bear State kennels
of late and a number of valuable dogs
have been lost. There are enough left,
however, to make things interesting in
mo wonnern trials.
Carl Liebe's young doe. Llebe'a Kin it.
a good performer in last year's Oregon
uerDies. is developing splendidly and
those who have seen him work in the
last few weeks believe that he will be
a grand performer this year. Dr. E. W.
Morse" Rowdy, winner of second place
in the Oregon derby last September,
has completely recovered from an at
tack of distemper and returned to form.
He shows great promise.
Maurice Abraham's Count IvrnT-lnir
the Oregon derby winner, looks well
and is receiving light work to keep in
condition. He Is a tractable dog, a
consistent performer and is expected to
show something out of the ordinary in
me mi-age races. ,
Dr. L. D. Fricka. of Wash In trtrvn r C
head of the United States Public Health
bervice, has sent out a promising Eng
lish setter bitch to Fred Beaks. She
will be fitted for the Northwest trials
this season. E. A. Parsons, of Portland,
has sent his noted bitch. Irene Dan
stone's Marie, to Quayley vllle. W. Va.,
to be bred to the famous sire. Prince
Rodney's Count. He has also sent
Theda Bara. another English setter
bitch, to the same kennels to be trained.
Carl Stratton is mourning the loss
of hi3 beautiful setter bitch and her
entire litter by Uncle Nat.
There Is a movement on foot to hold
field trials in Yakima this year. A
number of Hog ewners have signified
their willingness to take part in the
trials and it seems more than probable
that there will be a large number of
entries. The British Columbia trials
will likely be the first in the North
west. They will be held about Sep
tember 1. Then will come the Wash
ington trials, which will be held near
Seattle. Following these will be the
Yakima and Oregon trials, the fo'ir
forming an attractive circuit.
Walter B. Honeyman has received a
brace of high-class Walker foxhounds
from an Illinois kennel. They have a
long record of bobcats and other var
mints to their, credit, and Mr. Honey
man is preparing to give them a trial
on the Oregon felines, one of which
he has already secured for the experiment.

TIOMAS w. tiAnoua once was as
prominent in the sport light as
he is now in the "leak" probe that
has been occupying the attention of
Congress. The Bostonian was once in
terested in the sulky sport and his
colors were represented by a select
string of blue-blooded trotters' and
pacers on the elite Grand Circuit.
It was as owner of the trotter
Boralma that he established a record
that still stands and was the sensation
of the season of 1900. In the $5000
Transylvania stake at Lexington, Octo
ber 4 of that year, Lawson started
backing his favorite. Auction pools
were the system of wagering, with
bids received for first choice. He went
ud to $5000 to buy the first ticket on
Boralma. For the second ticket Law-
son paid another $5000.
This stands as the record price ever
bid for a ticket on a trotting horse.
Boralma took the first three heats and
the stake. Lawson is reported to have
wagered $20,000 on the side with J.
Hubinger. another plunger.
After- it was all over Lawson dis
played his generosity by presenting
all his winnings to charity.
Fred W. Kelley. secretary of the Pa
cific Coast Trotting Horse Breeders'
Association, was present at the time
and recalls many of the lncldnts.
"I can picture Tom Lawson in Con
gress as he was that day at the Lex
ington track," he says. "He took the
business of betting thousands as calm
ly as could be Imagined. The crowd
marveled at his nerve in running the
first two tickets up to $5000 each. He
simply twirled his cane while betting
th additional jzo.uoo.
Leslie James Darcy says his main
ambition is to knock out Mike Oibbons,
and he is anxious to have a 20-round
bout arranged. "In Australia they
think Gibbons is the greatest man of
his weight in this country," says
Darcy, "therefore they expect me to
knock him out or they will think at
home that I have been a latiure nere
Friend fan maintains that Darcy
doesn't have to do "very much" to make
the folks at home believe he has Deen
a success. Anyway, what does he care?
According to all reports they don't
want him back.
' The latest "dope" from St. Paul.
Minn., is that Fred Hartman. American
chemist who ran most of the distance
in the 609-mile Wlnnipeg-to-St. Paul
dog race, still feels weary, although he
does not show any ill-effects from his
terrible exertion of the long "mush."
He is in high spirits, although still
suffering from snow blindness, but is
expected to come out without injury
to his sight. His frost-bitten face and
swollen knee are doing nicely.
Hartman entered the race hoping
that he could win first money and with
it establish a research chemical lab
ratory. His ambition is in a fair way
to be realized. Purses collected for
him have exceeded in value the prizes
I captured by Albert Campbell, who won
I the race. In addition Hartman's feat
has resulted in a number of theatrical
offers for him and his dogs. The other
drivers also were given extra prizes.
Hartman, an alumnus of Massachu
setts Institute of Technology, has been
employed as assayer in the Far North.
He Is still the guest of L. W. Hill in
Walter Miller, world's middleweight
wrestling champion, goes a long way
when he allows the Lyric Theater to

a man weighing only 154 pounds or so
at his best. His engagement starts this
Walter probably will be bothered by
Ben Bordsen and a few other "rasslers.1
Here's a new one for all the broken
armed pitchers. Hy West. ex-Coast
Leaguer, has taken up tennis to im
prove his .flipper.
George Stovall Intends to make
"Chick" Mattlck captain of his out
fielders this year. The firebrand, him
self, will be captain of the infielders.
It is rumored that "Chief Johnson will
be captain of the Ditchers. "Horni
Mitze leaderof the catchers and "Shine"
Scott pilot of the rubbers. No an
nouncement has been made regarding
the captaincy or the owners.
The coming of Fred Yapp Mitchell to
the Chicago National League this year
has been likened by- many old-time fans
to the start of the managership of
Frank Selee. the man who put the Cubs
on the map to start their long period
of victory 10 years ago. When Selee
came to Chicago the team was worse
off than it was last Fall.
Selee took charge in the Spring of
1902 and his club finished in fifth place
that year. He gathered together a
young army of athletes in the Spring
of 1S03. Frank LeRoy Chance and
Johnny Kling were the only two good
holdovers. Out of the 190i group of
youngsters came Johnny Evers and
Carl Lund gr en.
From that time until the season of
1906 when the Cubs won the pennant
and started on their long period of su
premacy, they were strengthened a
little at & time.
However. Selee was replaced by
Frank Chance just on the threshold of
a successful managerial career.
Mitchell has better prospects than had
Selee. Can he turn the same trick and
remain on the job to share the glory
and financial reward of a championship
A contract has been signed for a
baseball game at Peoria, I1L, April 3,
between the Boston Red Sox and
Brooklyn Dodgers. Owner Ebbets, of
the Dodgers, tried to arrange a barn
storming tour between the two clubs,
but Frazee and Ward at Boston did not
like the plan. This one game ought to
furnish a real battle, considering how
the Sox showed up the Brooklyn in tho
last world's series.
