"Elaborate plans are being: formu
lated for the running of all-American
field trials at Lebanon. Or., starting the
week of September 15. The programmes
will be under the auspices of the Ore
ron Field Trial club, of which Mike H.
Butler is president It will be the big
gest event of its kind ever run on the
Pacific coast and :s attracting na
tional attention 2. m c r. c: field trial men.
The running will start with the derby
stake of the Pacific Coast Field Trial
club of California, members of which
will come north in special Pullman
cars. It is hoped to complete the Cali
fornia trials by Wednesday, September
17, so that the Oregon trials can be
started the following morning and be
finished by Saturday night.
That the stakes will have a very
large entry list is assured, as the Ail
American Field Trial club, one of the
largest and most prominent organiza
tions in the east, is corning to Glacier
national park, Montana, to run its trials
there and will come to Lebanon intact.
For years past tnis club has staged
its annual prairie chicken trials in
South Dakota, but conditions there
made it advisable for it to change the
scene of the competition.
Montana Itaces Are First.
Four stakes will be held at Glacier
rational park starting September 2.
Quite a number of Pacific coast
fanciers will go to Montana to attend
the all-American trials and to escort
the ail-American party to Lebanon
Over 100 of the best dogs in the east,
south and middle west will be brought
west of the Rockies by the all-Ameri-can
The purps of the all-American club,
coupled with those from Oregon, Wash
ington. California and British Colum
bia, will develop some keen competi
tion. Paul R. Whiteside, the Porttand
trainer, who has most of the Oregon
dogs in his string, expects to make the
trip to Montana. At present he is -hard
at work at his training camp near
Harrisburg getting the dogs in shape.
Among the best thoroughbreds in
Whiteside's stable are several belong
ing to Aaron M. Frank and last year's
winners of the Oregon trials, Proctor's
Belle, owned by George W. Bates Jr.;
Licky Kid. owned by W. K. Bates jr.;
Carlon, and Langley's Zed, owned by L.
L. Langley.
Publicity Will Aid Stole.
Publicity gained in the columns of
the American Field of Chicago and the
coming of field trial enthusiasts from
many different states will do much to
advertise Oregon's natural resources
and conditions. Included in the ar
rangements to entertain the visitors
will be a trip up the Columbia river
highway, with the possibility of some
of the party continuing on to Mount
Hood, and trips through the Willamette
valley. At Lebanon they will b shown
moving pictures of various parts of
Oregon. On the night of September
17 a sumptuous banquet will be given
by the Oregon club and on September
19 a bench show will be held for dogs
that took part in the field trial com
petition. The people of Lebanon are
takine an active part and it is large
ly through the interest shown by them
that it was possible to schedule an
event of this kind on account of the
large number of dogs competing. It
will require land on both sides of a
road over a course 25 miles in length.
The international association of Field
Trial clubs has mapped out a great
campaign for the coming season. At
the conclusion of the Oregon trials the
Washington Field Trial club will put
on its sketch at Mount Vernon, Wash
commencing September 22. The British
Columbia Field Trial club will hold its
annual classic at Ladner's Landing.
B. C, commencing September 29, and
the international championships are
billed for th same fields immediately
following. The windup of the season
will occu r at Yakima., Wash., with the
Yakima Valley field trials on Octo
ber 26. Thp all-American club will most
likely participate in all of these trials,
giving everyone an all-American aspect.
Multnomah Fly and Rait Experts
Are Bu5 Preparing Against
Koreicrn Invasion.
Fly and bait casters from all along
the Pacific coast will gather in Port
land to compete in the northwest fly
and bait casting champions-hips which
will be held on August 9 and 10 at
the Sell wood Park cast in g pool under
the auspices of the Multnomah Anglers'
Walter F. Backus, prominent Port
land caster and secretary of the Mult
nomah Anglers' club, has been in Se
attle the past week on business and is
expected to return today or tomorrow.
Although the trip was primarily for busi
ness. Backus, it is known, has been
spending a good deal of his time look
ing over the casting situation in Se
attle and Tacoma and getting a line
on the men who will compete in the
northwest championships from those
cities. Back us will have a lot of in
teresting things to tell the local cast
ers upon his return. Members of the
Multnomah Anglers club are practicing
diligently during the remaining time
left before the big event and Portland
experts are expected to place high in
this year's tournament. The winner
of the all-round title will be sent east
to participate in the national cham
pionships in Chicago this month.
A lot of the boys are wondering what
Ray Winters does with all the money
he wins at casting. Maybe Kay could
answer that best personally.
The programme of the northwest
championships follows: August 9 Half
ounce distance bait cast, half-ounce ac
curacy bait cast, half-ounce miss and
out. dry fly accuracy and dry fly ac
curacy, unknown distance.
August 10 Distance fly. 5 ounce

CINCINNATI, Aug. 2. The Cincinnati
team strengthened its hold on first
place by defeating New York.. Sallee
pitched one of his best games, avow
ing the Oiants only five hits, and
they never seriously threatened to
score. Benton lasted only five innings,
and Dubuc, who relieved him in the
sixth, was wild and ineffective.
It was Knights of Columbus day, and
before the game Governor Cox of Ohio
presented Manager Moran of the Cin
cinnati club, who is a member of the
order, with a costly diamond-studded
watch and fob. The attendance was
21.600, the largest weekday crowd of
the season. Score:

Harry Fischer, member of the board

Frederick Rubian, secretary of the
American Amateur Athletic union, yes
terday, stating the A. A. U. would pay
$100 towards the expense of sending a
representative of Multnomah club east
to compete in the distance race at
River ton. It is not likely that the
Winged M institution will take up the
offer as the club has no one of enough
ability at that distance to send east.

Miss Helen Martin. 16 years old, of
Honolulu, in a recent swimming meet,
lost only by a few inches in the 60
yard breast stroke event to Mrs. Terie

Ruth Crane Is the 17-year-old mer
maid. In the same meet she won both
