Signed Professional Contract
First In 1900 Wltn Denver

BT HARRY M. GRAYSON.
"Priceless" Pearl Casey, once more
will umpire In the Pacific Coast
League. He has been appointed by
President Baum to succeed Jack Doyle
who did not please overly well last
season. Fans all along- this gTeat West
ern circuit are pleased that Casey Is
the man chosen. He is one of the best
Judges of balls and strikes in the busi
ness and is not slow when It comes to
handling the bases either.
Carey has been a notable baseball
figure west of the Rockies since 1902.
He was born on a farm near Mexico,
Mo., but went to Denver at the age of
12 and was raised in the Colorado me
tropolis. Ha played his first "bush
games" around Denver.
Denver Gets Him First.
In 1900 he signed his first profes
sional contract with the Denver Bears
of the Western League, and beat Joe
Tinker out of the shortstop position.
Tinker went to Great Falls, of the
Union Association, coming to the Port
land Northwestern League club the
next season and soon graduating to the
Casey stayed with Denver only three
months and then arranged a deal for
himself whereby he became a free
agent and signed with the Ogden club
which played outlaw ball in a league
consisting of Ogden. Salt Lake, L&
Eoon, Park City and Pocatello, Idaho.
Priceless Pearl did the shortpatching
for Ogden for 'a year and one-half,
shifting to second base in 1902.
Mike Fisher had a poor club In the
Facramento Senators, of the Pacific
Coast League that year. He tried in
vala to get some good pastimers in the
East, but everyone sent out looked
more like a bartender than a ball
player, and at last Mike, determined to
land a few real tossers, Journeyed to

The Irishman whose real name Is
Pearl Barnes, reported to Sacramento
In June, 1902, relieving Billy Hulen at
second base. He was with Sacramento
until 1907, when that city's franchise
was transferred to Tacoina. He was
with Tacoma during 1904 and 1905 and
when Fresno took the Oity of Destiny's
niche after the San Francisco earth
quake of 1906, he went to the Raisin
City with the team.
From the day Pearl Casey hit Sacra
mento in 1902, Mike Fisher started to
carve his name into the list of famous
Western managers. That famous Sac-ramento-Tacoma-Fresno
team of 1903-4-5-6
is still remembered. On it were

Casey came to the Portland Coasters
In 1907 when the Fresno club was split
up. He played with the Beavers until
1909 when he took over the manage
ment of the Portland Northwestern
League club. In 1910 he captained the
Portland Coast League pennant win

Nick Williams' Portland Northwestern

Ability of PItebera Is Greatest
Point of Doubt.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Eugene,
lrCD. n. ispecial.) With the basket
ball season drawing to a close baseball
enthusiasts are anxiously awaiting the
early season call which, according to
Coach Bezdek, will be the first week
of March. Prospects for Oregon hav
ing a stellar nine depends on the abil
lty of pitchers who Join Bezdek's squa
earlv in the season.
Emmett Rathb'in, varsity pitcher of
last season, is on hand with Walter
Kennon, Dwight Wilson and Johnnie
Beckett to assist him on the mound.
Shy Huntington promises to prove him
;elf a big asset behind the bat with
Jake Rlsley ready to step Into his
shoes. Unless Dick Nelson, captain an
varsity first sacker, decides to sign
with a Southern league Bezdek will
have his high wall for the initial post
tion. Walter Grebe will probably be i
first line for second base with Harold
Maison on the third wing.
Oregon lost her fast shortstop by the
jrraduation of Anse Cornell but with
consistent work by Jay Fox. captain of
the fresman nine of last year, he will
be ready to fill the opening. Jim Sheehy
is the only regular man left in the out
field district with Virg Alexander far

Nothing has been heard from them by
Hugh McCredie, who is looking after
the business affairs of the club during
the absence of the two Portland mag
nates. Answers have had not enough
time to get here.
Leake has asked the McCredles to
arrange a transfer whereby he can

money than the McCredles could afford
to give an untried lad.

HO are the world's champions in

Here they are:

Bantamweight. Johnny Ertle, of St.
Featherweight, Johnny Kilbane, of

Welterweight. Jack Britton, of Chi

sas. Maybe one is open to correction on
the proposition that these are the
world's champions, but at all events
they all have at least a technical right
to their titles.
Pete "Kid" Herman, of New Orleans,
claims the bantamweight title by vir
tue of a decision over Kid Williams,
of Baltimore, who lost to Ertle on a
foul, but otherwise the titles named
in the foregoing are fairly clear. Jack
LMllon, who was generally recognized
as the light-heavyweight champion for
some time, lost a decision to Battling
Levinsky In Boston not long ago, and
while Levinsky and Dillon have both
been beaten In New York by Billy
Mlske and Miske may be the best in
that division he has not met Dillon
or the battler in a decision battle.
Jack Britton and Battling Levinsky
are without a doubt two of the clever
est boxers in the game today, both
boys often giving away from 10 to 13
pounds to an opponent. They do not
keep the fans waiting at the ringside
if an opponent comes In over weight
