Thirty thousand men armed with
Rlgh-powered rifles will be in the for
"eats of Oregon tomorrow morning be
fore sunrise. They are not there to
patrol the timber against invasion
from a foreign foe. nor will they de
battle with any warring- people. They
are not in starch of any enemy of the
state or nation, yet they have blood In
their eyes and before 'they leave the
woods most of them will have accom
plished the purpose of their invasion.
The explanation Is simple the open
deer season begins one-half hour be
fore sunrise tomorrow morning.
From reports which have been re
ceived at the office of State Game
Warden Shoemaker deer are more than
plentiful. In some places where forest
fires have been more serious than usu
al the deer have taken to the high
ridges and open spaces. In Douglas
county, one of the many favorite hunt
ing grounds, a heavy rain Friday put
out all but one fire and the deer will
wander down to their accustomed
haunts, within easy reach of the sports
man. Campers, tourists, fire wardens
and settlers all agree that deer are on
the increase and that this year ought
to be a record year for those who like
to come back with the limit.
Maay Get License.
Tn eastern Oregon where the big
mule deer roams the forests the hunter
is not bothered so much with under
brush but the animals are harder to
get. These deer will dress from 175
to 300 pounds hile the western Ore
gon and coast deer will seldom reach
the ISO-pound mark.
There has been a last-minute rush
for licenses this week. Parties of
hunters have been made up over night
and the license clerk at fish and game
commission office has been busy filling
out the pasteboard with the two tags
attached. These tags are an important
part of the hunter's outfit, for by car
rying them on his person he will avoid
possible trouble. Warden Shoemaker
says that many extra special deputies
have been employed to cover the hunt
ing season. The principal duty of
these men will be to see that hunters
carry licenses and do not shoot does,
lawns or more than the limit of bucks.
Portland Sportsaaea Leave.
Friday and Saturday witnessed an
exodus of Portland sportsmen to vari
ous points in the Willamette valley and
southern Oregon. Autos loaded down
with camping outfits have been travel
ing southward for the last two days.
Lane county is the Mecca for many
parties. The Oakridge country on the
Vpper Willamette and the upper Slus
law district offer excellent advantages
to the hunter who travels by auto.
The roads lead right Into the good
bunting country and there are fine cold
springs and running water which al
ways add much to the camp life. Coos
and Curry conuties will add their share
to the number of bucks killed for the
season. Douglas county is always de
pendable for the Tiller. West Fork.

never fail the hunter who is not both

American Phantom Is Expected
Make English Evening Clothes
Contingent Gasp.
NEW YORK, Aug. 30. (Special.)
Mike Gibbons, the St. Paul boxer, has
declared his intention of making a trip
to England for the purpose of stacking
up acainst some the British middle
weights. English fight fans are going
to go wild over Mike Gibbons' style,
for the St. Paul phantom is the near
est approach to the English stars of
the ring a tew years ago. that could
possibly be found in this country at
the present time.
American fistic followers and critics
like to poke a little fun at English box
ing customs. The American fan has
come to demand rough stuxi in nis
battle in the squared circle, probably
because tbe rank and file do not have
a proper appreciation of the finer
points of the glove sport, but the Brit
isher likes his boxing fast and clever,
and In this Gibbons is certain to please,
unless he has gone back considerably in
the last year and a half.
Eugene Corrie. noted English referee,
in a recent article anent the boxing
game In England and in this country.
says the style that goes best in Uncle
Sam's domain, reflects truthfully the
aggressive spirit of the Yankee. Mr.
Corrie's deduction was made in the
most friendly spirit and students here
cannot well prove that he is wrong.
In the same comparison he says the
English fans prefer lots of science
and speed because they have been edu
cated in the orthodox principles of the
sport, and cannot obtain much of in
terest from a battle where the action
brings blood and gore from the force
rather than the frequency of blows.
England has never seen Mike Gib
bons. Mike's work has always been
appreciated In this country, but he has
not been kept as busy nor has he been
as popular with the rank and file as
some of the tough customers of the
division, but over in Old England the
St. Paul boy should cause the evening
clothes crowd to gasp In astonishment
for be does make the popular conception
of a ghost seem slow and clumsy when
he is properly warmed up and working
on "high." The trip to England will
probably be made within the next two
months, if it is possible to obtain pas
sage. The debut will be watcned with
interest In this country.

W. P. Burton had consented to sail the

"Naturally, he woll have his own
professional skipper," Sir Thomas
added. "Mr. Burton will also be re

both boats, and, in fact, he will be in
entire charge of the whole of the
trials and the actual races on the other

signer, is going over at an early date
for the purpose of thoroughly examin

"Do you thing any alterations are

was asked.

FRANCISCO. Aug. 30. (Spe-
"Wanted! American boxers
of class and a desire to see the
world, for matches in Sydney and Mel
bourne, Australia." The aforegoing
sign might as well have been published
in the advertising columns this week
for George Bailleau. new manager of
the Stadiums, Ltd., and successor of
Snowy Baker as the fistic genius of
Australia, arrived in San Francisco the
for part of this week.
Bailleau, who managed several Aus
tralian and English fighters before he
turned promoter, is, frankly. In search
of talent. When Snowy Baker decided
there was more money to be made in
moving pictures than In handling
fights, the director of the Stadiums
Ltd.. looked about for new talent.
Their choice was George Bailleau
who has a long experience in the fight
ing game and is not to be hoodwinked.
About the first thing they did was to
advise Bailleau to make a trip to
America and disoover for himself the
best boxers he could secure.
That's the reason why George is
He's nobody's fool and plans to dig
into the game for himself. The best
proof is that although he arrived late
on Monday night, he didn't lose any
time in going across the bay to Oak
land to watch tbe four round fights
staked by Tommy Simpson. Bailleau
wants to know first hand what is
going on. And to do that he will
have to see the fights for himself.
The Australian is a young chap in
the game but he is well informed. He
wants the best possible talent for his
stadiums. If he can't get the cham
pions (and it is quite likely, they will
want altogether too much coin) he will
have to take the next best. So Baill
eau plans to tour the country and
pick out the comers in the sport.
He says that since the war is over,
the Aaatralians are keener for sport
than ever before. They are willing to
pack the arenas providing they are
given something in the way of amuse
ment. Bailleau will likely spend sev
eral months tn America. He will send
many fighters to his country providing
he can reach terms with -them.
It certainly is a great chance for boys
who want to see something of the world
and at the same time make something
for themselves.
Willie Meehan brought home with him
from the northwest about as startling
an excuse for his failure to stow away
Ole Anderson as could be desired.
"They told me I was to fight a suck
er," he wailed. "Instead of that, I was
up against a tough, rugged, young fel
low and a chap who knows something
about the game. I was caught napping
and out of condition. They fooled me."
Meehan isn't the first man in the
world who has been told a story of that
sort. Many a fighter has been beguiled
into accepting an engagement on the
ground that he was to be given a soft
spot. But Meehan is the first, to my
knowledge, who has squealed when he
has been stung.
The best thing for Phat Willie to
have done would have been to keep
his mouth shut. But there is nobody
like our San Francisco fat boy the coun
try over. -
He is simplicity personified and when
he returned home told the truth and let
it go at that. He had been persuaded
that Ole Anderson would blow away
once a punch was waved in his direc
tion. So Willie took the match on in a
hurry and with no training. -
Now that Meehan. is finally at home.
he tella me that he will not fight for
two or three weejes. . Says he. was stale
when, he . boxed . Larue . and .what -he j
needs Is a rest. Indeed, he has gone
into the country and plans to spend
a fortnight breathing in the ozone and

As soon as the rest is over, Meehan
assures me he will be back in the game
and that he doesn't care who he fights.
Louis Parente didn't do so very well
last Thursday night with his re-opened
fights at the Coliseum. He had a good
care to be sure and the fights were
all that could have been expected of
them. But somehow or other, the
crowd failed to materialize.
San Francisco four round audiences
are accustomed to Dreamland rink.
They are likewise accustomed to going
to the fights of a Friday night and
might add their wives are accustomed
to that night off. But when it comes
to giving up friend husband for a mid
week night in addition, there is a roar.
Perhaps Louis will be able to build
up the sport. I thought so last week.
but the attendance the first night and
as well this Thursday evening was
anything but encouraging.
Abe Attell. former featherweight
champion, who is in our midst, is plan
ning a comeback. Abe wants to fight
again and Parente announces that he
has come to terms by which Attell will
take on Frankie Burns of Oakland in
the near future.
Abe came to the coast from New
York some weeks ago. He announced
at the outset that he was going into
the movies in southern California.
Since then, however, he has come back
to San Francisco and has spent most
of his time at the ball games.
Now, however, he yearns for the ring.
Personally, I can't see Attell as a
comeback. Once upon a time he was
great fighter and unquestionably the
class of his division. But it has been
many years since he lost the title and
practically five since he has been doing
any fighting at all. He may thing he
can fight, but the fact remains that no
man out of the game as long as the
San Francisco feather has ever been
able to accomplish anything.
The latest gossip is that Jim Griffin
will act as Attell's manager. In his
halcyon days Abe never wanted a man
ager. He attended very strictly to his
own business. And, no matter how
much he can fight at the present time,
Abe is still a smart chap and could, if
he so desired, look after his own af
fairs. . ,
San Francisco will have a midwinter
baseball league this season that prom
ises to count for something. Organi
zation was effected the first part of
this week. The league is to be known
as the Seals Midwinter Baseball league.
A lot of influential folks, with an in
terest in good, clean sports, have been
secured to act as officials and directors.
The plan is to have clubs of ball
players in age from 17 to 24, and young
fellows who are not signed by con
tract to any club in organized baseball.
These clubs will play a series of
elimination games. When there are
four teams remaining there will be
arranged a series to decide the city
No admission will be charged to these
games and no salaries are to be paid

baseball club has promised the winning
team a prize of 11000.
Naturally the Coast league, and par
ticularly the San Francisco club, looks
for its reward in the development of
young talent. Kamm of the Seals was
a product of the 1918 midwinter league.
The midwinter season will open the
week following the close of the Coast
league season. And it will last as long

state that he has offers from nearly

tary of the Pacific Coast Bowling asso

teams for the 1920 Pacific coast cham
pionship tournament to be held in
Oakland, Cal., during the convention of
the bowlers next spring.
J. W. Blaney, manager of the M. I
Kline team of Portland, which won the
northwest international title last year
and placed third In the race for the
Pacific coast championships, is in Re
ceipt of a letter from Tupper asking
for the assurance of the entry of the
Kline team in 1923 and gives his
scheme lor putting the coming meet
over with a bans.
His scheme for increasing the at
tendance at next year's tournament la
to hold a series of telegraph tourna
ments under the auspices of the Pacifio
Coast Bowling association, which
takes in all of the territory from Den
ver west. It is his plan to start the
first tournament October 1, and fol
low It up with others every two months
as follows: December 1, February 1,
1920, and April 1.
Teams will bowl on their home- al
leys against new wood; alleys must be
regulation and without "slots" and all
alleys are to be inspected and passed
upon by officials of the association.
It is Tupper's idea to have the first
four teams receive cash prizes and
have their entrance fees In all events
paid at the 1920 tournament. In addi
tion to these there will be many other
prizes governed by the number of en
tries in each tournament.
In this way 20 five-man teams will
have their entry fees paid and part of
their expenses paid to the big event.
A team that has won any of the four
prizes in any of the telegraph tourna
ments will not be eligible to bowl in
any of the following tourneys. In
other words, when a team has won its
entrance fee to the 1920 it is barred
from further competition during that
Tupper also states in his letter to
Blaney that bowling has taken a strong?
hold in all the cities throughout Cali
fornia already this season and many
applications for league and alley sanc
tions have been received. The largest
sanction was granted to the Standard
Oil league of Richmond, Cal., which is
made up of 20 fiye-man teams.
According to present plans the M.
L. Kline team will make the trip to
the American championships in 1920.
Clash With Ban Johnson Results In
Successful Business Man to
Seek Retirement.
new YORK. Aug. 30. August has
been responsible for some far-reaching
action in this world since time began.
In baseball alone some of the best men
ever associated with the pastime have
been driven out. and Just now fans may
behold the spectacle of one of the best
men baseball ever had washing his
hands of the national pastime, in the
person of Josepn J. iannin, lorati
owner of the Boston Kea faox.
Lannin sold the Newark (N. J.) ciud.
in the new International league, sev
eral days ago. He sold the outfit for
S40.000. a price conceded to De iar oe-
low the actual value of the property
Involved. But price did not enter very
deeply into the matter. The sale pro
vided Lannin with an opportunity - to
get a step nearer to the exit of base
ball. Lannin owns a nig snare oi me
Buffalo outfit. He expects to unload
this some day.
Lannin's leave of baseball at this time
is interesting because while he was at
the helm of affairs in baseball in the
Boston American league outfit, he
clashed with Ban Johnson, just as
Harry Frazee and Colonel Huston of
the New York Yankees are doing- toaay.
JoseDh J. Lannin was too clever a
business man to be satisfied with Amer
ican league internal affairs. He could
not understand why the league owners
permitted Ban Johnson to pursue the
tactics of a czar so he kicked over the
traces and was soon in bad repute
with ' "Big- Ban." - '
The disgust that rankled in Lan
nin's mind after several clashes with
Johnson drove Lannin to Jook for a way
out of the national game. He sold the
Boston club without much trouble. Now
he has disposed of his Newark holdings
and bis holdings in other cities will
not be difficult to clear off his books,
according to his own admission. Lannin
was a big, successful business man and
his keen business judgment would have,
helped baseball, but evidently-the ciubj
