President Blewett, of Pacific Coasl
International League, to Hold
Meeting With British Columbia
to Lay Plans of Campaign.
SEATTLE, Jan. 26. (Special.) Bob
Brown, the sorrel-topped magnate of
the Vancouver club, will pass through
Seattle tomorrow evening on a mission
which will be of interest to Pacific
Coast International League followers.
Brown has been appointed a committee
of one to see that a baseball club Is
put In Butte this season, and he will
leave for the Montana city after con
ferring with President Blewett here to
That the Vancouver' president's Job
is not going to be any snap is evident
from the news which leaks In from
the mining city. Both Butte and Great
Falls are still nursing a grudge against
the Northwestern League because of
the failure of the circuit to finish the
season In 1917. President Davey, of
the Butte club, has been whispering a
few things In the ears of Montana,
newspaper men which give the Impres
sion that Mr. Davey is leary about
financing a baseball team this season.
In which case Bob Brown will face the
task of digging up a new man to take
over the franchise which the leaguo
has voted to Butte.
President Blewett admits that the
league may experience some trouble In
the Montana city, but he declares that
Butte will have a club in the league,
regardless of whether Davey withdrawn
or not. The Pacific Coast International
League has had more than one offer
for the franchise in the Montana city.
and It is pretty certain that the Butte
fans will see baseball.
"We expect to have the Butte mat
ter straightened out in the very near
future," Blewett states. "Brown has
been empowered to go ahead and com
plete arrangements for a team in the
Montana city, and we expect the mat
ter to be settled shortly."
Meanwhile, the fans will await the
result of Brown's visit, as it is not
Impossible that a change of manage
ment will occur in Butte baseball.
Two battlers who recently performed
in Portland will head the boxing show
carded for Seattle this coming week.
Battling Ortega, the southerner, who
Al Sommers held to an even verdict In
their bout, and Jimmy Duffy, the Oak
land lad who beat Frankie Tucker, are
the men who will furnish the feature,
attractions, with Frank Farmer any
Willie Hunefeld, of Los Angeles, dlslsi
Ing up the opposition.
While Farmer can be depended upoi
to put up a good fight against the in
vading middleweight crack, Seattle
fans are rather disappointed in the se
lection of Caruso Dan Salt. The local
ring followers were desirous of seeing
the boy who held Ortega even, AI
Sommers, In action here, but Austin
and Salt picked the logger.
In Willie Hunefeld, Duffy, who beat
Tucker In the south, will find a boy
who is able to give him a tough scrap.
Hunefeld is one of the clever men of
this section, and he has a long record
of wins In .Los Angeles, where he lived
before coming north. Hunefeld, like
Duffy, has a great left hand, and local
fans look for him to give the visitor
a hard contest.
Joe Benjamin should have been
awarded the decision over Lloyd Mad
den In their go here last week. The
Portland boy Jabbed the former ama-
eur champion all over the ring, and
in BPlte of a good finish by Madden,
Benjamin deserved the verdict. In
fact, the Portlander was the most pop
ular boy on the card, owing to the
failure of Frankie Farren to show to
good advantage against Houck.
That the Seattle hockey team Is out
to repeat their little stunt of last sea
son and cop the Pacific Coast cham
pionship Is shown by the return of
Frank Foyston, star of last season's
world champs. It has been learned that
the Seattle boss, Lester Patrick, turned
down $500 In cold cash for Foyston,
offered by the Toronto club, of the
Eastern Canada League.
Foyston always has been popular
with Seattle puck followers, and he
will be honored by a "Foyston night
next WeSnesday, when the Vancouver
Millionaires oppose the Mets in the
Seattle arena. Foyston will be pre-
rnted with floral wreaths and treated
like a regular matinee idol, and several
thousand fans are planning on turning
out and see the fun.
The hockey race this year is a num-
dinger, in spite of the fact that only
three clubs are in the running. The
arena Is well filled ever;- night a ame
is staged and the biggest crowd or ine
season Is looked for Wednesday. Port
land always has been the best drawing
rjird here, and any time Eddie Oatman
and his cohorts take the Ice the rink
Is pretty certain to be crowded.
