LOS ANGELES, Ca!., June 24.
(Special.) When president, McCar
thy suspended DicK Cox and Sam
Hale for the altercation with Um
pire Carroll in the Jirst game of
the Portland series with Vernon at
Washington park here, he greased
the rails for a skidding ball club.
Today Tom Turner's ballgamers
dropped their, fifth straight to the
Bengals, 7 to 4.
Jimmy Middleton took the mound
for the Portlanders. He was hit
hard, 14 safeties being pounded off
him. Even then the fighting Bea
vers might have won were it not
for Manager Bill Essick's quick re
versal of pitchers in the third in
ning, when Byron Houck went wild
and a single and two walks filled
the bases. :
Pete Schneider went to the mound
and with him the curve that gave
him big league fame when he was
chucking for the Cincinnati Reds
not many years back. After a sac
rifice fly by Brazill, which scored
Joe Sargent, who had singled sharp
ly to center, the Beavers were able
to collect but two more hits and but
one more run.
Beavers Score in Second.
Portland made its first run in the
second. Charley High walked and
was forced out by Brazill. Smith
fumbled McCann's grounder, but his
quick toss to French nabbed Brazill
at second when he overran the bag.
Gressett then walked and McCann
scored on Fuhrman's single.
Portland's two tallies in the third
came when Sargent singled and
Houck dealt out free passes to Poole
and Charley High.
Brazill's sacrifice fly scored Sar
gent and Smith's boot of McCann's
drive let Poole tally.
.French's Error Causes Run,
French's error accounted for the
only run off - Schneider. Charley
High popped out, but Frank- Brazill
walked in round No. 8 and took
third on Gressett's infield single.
French's boot of Ollie Fuhrman's
bounder allowed Brazill to cross the
dish. The score:

WILL ARD DEFIES DEMPSEY
AND CHAMPION STANDS PAT
Ex-Title Holder A'dmits He Has Been Quietly on Trail of Jack. Ever
Since Long His Crown at Toledo. . "
BY ROBERT EDGREN. '
M ENTITLED to a return
match with Jack Dempsey,
and I've been after it iLver
two years. A couple of times I've
thought the match was on, but
Dempsey has slipped out. I, don't
believe he wants to take the risk
of meeting me again. I'm ready to
sign any time and it's up to Demp
sey to saywhether he'll give me a
match or not. If he will, let's go
to it. If he won't let him say so
and that'll end It. It's up to Demp
sey." There's Jess Willard's defl, hot off
the bat. According 'to Jess he Is
weary of trying to use diplomacy.
It hasn't worked. 'Now he's coming
right out in the open. t
"I gave Dempsey time to enoy
what he was entitled to after To
ledo," says Willard. f"I was deter
mined to get a return match from
the start, but I didn't hound him
for it. I worked quietly to get it.
"Once I trained three or four
months. In touch with Rickard all
the time, and went to New YorkJ
and signed Rickard's articles, think
ing it was all settled. Then I went
home to continue training. But for
some reason Rickard didn't - get
Dempsey. Perhaps it was because
Carpentier came over and they all
saw the possibilities in an Interna
tional match and side-tracked me.
There was a world record gate in
it and I don't blame them. But
I've been quietly after Dempsey
ever since and haven't been able to
cet him to agree, to . a match.
"So you really were in training
that time?" I said.
"ijure good lmrii training," re
torted Jess. -
"Our hov.se was full of boxers and
boxing glovea for wo months." put
in Mrs. Willari.
"I had half a dozen sparring part
ners," said Jess.
"But since then haven't you given
out the impression all along that
you were Indifferent to fighting
again, and all tied up in business?"
"Yes, I havei" admitted Willard.
"I thought that was the best way
to get him. I didn t want to ap
pear too anxious, although there
hasn't been a minute when I have
not been quietly on his trail. It
looked as if I might never get him
at all if he thought I was in shape.
"I thought it was going to work
out all right Rickard telegraphed
me to be in Los Angeles when

Jess Scoffs at Brennaa,
I'm entitled to some kind of
action. Now- all this dodging
around is off, so far as I'm con
cerned. I'm the best man Dempsey
can meet and he has no excuse forJ
fooling around with Brennan, whom
he's beaten twice, or any of the
other second raters. I'm the only
man In the country the .public wants
to see him fight Any other match
he can make is a joke unless he
should fight Wills, and that match
is out of the question because mixed
matches are barred practically
in 'much better condition than
I was when I began training to fight
iempsey before, ' Willard went on.
"Then I'd been living in cities and
knocking around through a lot of
moving-picture stuff that kept me
busy, and left me only a month for
regular training. I was soft I didn't
feel good. .'
"From the time I left Toledo I've
taken care of myself with one idea
in mind to get Dempsey again and
win back the championship. I've
been in the country a.11 the time and
have done a lot of work jind walk
ing and some running. My legs
were my weak point at Toledo.
They re good now.
"I was soft from easy living. Now
I'm hard. I don't know what I
weigh, but I've been- a lot heavier!
than now. while I ve been rough
ing it for a couple of years Dempsey
has been living in cities and going
through the stage and moving-picture
stunt bo conditions are re
versed. I surely believe I can beat
Dempsey and will beat him if I
can induce him to fight me'

a New York sporting man who stood
near by. "I've seen that big quitter

"Don't you believe he isn't game,"
he snapped. "He. was so, game I

WHAT'S LEFT OF BEAVERS
PLAYS HERE THIS WEEK
Liberal Lickings Received From Seattle, San Francisco, Vernon,
Umpires and Bill McCarthy, Coast League President.
BY L. H. GREGORY.
E have with us thisi week the
Portland Beavers, or what is
left of them' after liberal
kicklngs from Seattle, San Francisco
and Vernon, the umpires, and Bill
McCarthy, Coast lea.gue president.
Since leaving home three weeks ago
at the iteak of a sensational win
ning streaky the team harf fallen
on evil days. Of 19 games on the
road, the Beavers have won just
five or to put it in reverse, have
lost 14. "
However, they will be -back on
the home kt this . week and that
may make a difference. As guests
in their two weeks' stay they will
entertain Los Angeles first and then
San Francisco, it will be the first
appearance here this year of either
ot these teams. -The
first game of the Portland-
Los Angeles series wiu an vvea
nesday, instead of the usual Tues
day. The reason for that is the- long
time it takes to come by train from
Los Angeles to Portland. The Beav
ers can't arrive in time to play Tues
day. . '
. Incidentally, this coming Wednes
day's opening game against Los
Angeles, is to be one of the- big
days at the Portland park. The
Portland Chamber of Commerce
some time ago asked to have th day
eet aside as a special Chamber of
Commerce day, which is to be made
an annual affair. The chamber will
endeavor to produce a, crowd for the
occasion that will make the cham
ber of commerce attendance record
at Seattle last Reason look like the
Chamber of Commerce day used to
be a great occasion at Seattle, "with
attendance and enthusiasm actually
rivaling those of opening day. It
has rather fallen into the discard
there this season with the change
in management, so it will be a
chance for Portland to show what
can be done. There will be a parade
preceding the game, the parade to
start at 1:30 o'clock, and there will
be a special stunt programme at the

primed tonight for the lo-round de

Monday night. ,
It is only once in a blue moon
that two champions,' both idols of
the sport, are found milling in the
same ring, Leonard, the youth, has
only some prestige to lose and a
championship to gain, while Brltton,
a campaigner of .17 years, has his
crown at stake. ,
Leonard's scepter will, be safe be
cause Britton will not be down' to
the lightweight poundage. Leonard
has trained in New York and will
step Into the ring at between 133
and 137 pounds against the 147 avoir

If Leonard wins he will be the
fourth man In ring history to sport
two titles simultaneously and the
first lightweight champion to an

Players of both the Portland and

attend the luncheon in uniform as

may get acquainted with at least
There will be brief talks by Tom
Turner, scout and acting manager
for the club; by Wade Killefer, the
Los Angeles manager; by William
H. Klepper, president of the Port
land dub; Dr. E. V. Morrow, second
vice-president, and Gus C. Moser,
iirst vice-president. Mr. Moser will
make the main speech, but he has
promised in advance that it will be
short, sweet and to the point...
The reason short , speeches are
emphasized is so there may be time
to hear from the players. Joe Sar
gent, for instance, has an interest
ing story to tell about his advent
tures in France, and Sammv Hale
has a fish story that will double up
the boys in their seats if he can be
prevailed on to tell it in his inimit
able southern dialect.
The luncheon will adjourn in time
fof the parade at 1:30. Among spe
cial prizes announced by Chairman
Coble for Ad club members attend
ing are a couple of tickets to that
afternoon's ball game and the first
ball pitched, which will go to some
body to take home for a souvenir.
The 'members of the Ad club will
attend the game in a body.
That five-day suspension slapped
onto Dick Cox and Sam Hale by
wuuam H. McCarthy, the Pacific
Coast league president for their
run-in with Umpire Carroll Tues
day, was altogether too pat to have
been accidental. It's beyond a coin
cidence that by barring them for
rive days McCarthy kept them out
io me exact ena ot the series
against Vernon, thus insuring theJ
Beavers or a good, hard licking be
fore their return home this week.

Bobby Harper is a big favorite In
Portland and always draws a good
bouse when he fights here. That Is
because he is a clean, promising
young fellow who always fights and
gives the fans their money's worth-.
Bobby is not a spectacular open
fighter like Joe Gorman, but at in
fighting he has yet to meet a boy
in the northwest who can beat him.
Harper's weakness at present is
an apparent inability to fight well
at long range and lack of a knock
out punch. His manager and trainer,
Charley Jost, himself an old-time
fighter, says he is working on Rob
ert and that he, is getting better
every day at long-range fighting.
"Harper is Just a kid yet," said
Jost. 'He is only 22. He hasn't gained
hjs full growth and has quite a few
things to learn about fighting, nat
urally enough, but he is learning all
the time. He gains something Irom
every-fight, and he is pecking away
in the gymnasium between fights
with the end always in view to Im
prove himself. Heis the most con
scientious young fighter I ever saw.
"In fact, Bobby hasn't a bad habit.
He never drank liquor in his life
and he doesn't like tobacco. He is
in bed every night at 9:30 o'clock
and he does that of his own volition,
not because his manager is hound
ing him to keep training hours. In
the morning he is up bright and
early for a tw,o-hour run on the
road. He is back for his bath and
rubdown and all set with a big ap
petite by lunch time. Incidentally,
Bobby doesn't eat breakfast. He
never misses his luncheon and din
"One of these fine days Harper
will surprise these fans who think
he hasn't a knockout punch, by
knocking over three or four boys
in a row. When he starts knocking
them he will bowl over a string of
the boys, for he has the strength
now but lacks only the knack of
landing that one punch. Harper is
one of the strongest young fellows
I ever saw.
"If all fighters were as clean-cut
and ambitious as Harper there never
would be any objection to profes-
sipnal boxing. Not that he's a high
brow, for high-toning the boys is
farthest from his thoughts. But he
is cean-cut and a clean liver and
I expect him to be heard from as a
champion some day not far . dis
GOLF COURSE IS FUNNED
USE OF OLD COUNTY FARM
SITE IS PROPOSED.
All Arrangements Made to Turn
. Over About 200 Acres to
City Park Bureau.
All arrangements have been com
pleted for turning over about 200
acres of land, formerly the county
farm site, to the city park bureau
for development, according to an
announcement made yesterday by
Charles S. Rudeen, chairman of the
county board of commissioners.
Several years ago the city and
county entered Into an arrangement
whereby the city obtained the prop
erly on a rental basis of $1 a year
for 50 years. This arrangement was
not satisfactory to either side, as
the city did not care to make per
manent improvements, and the
county was constantly besieged
with requests to utiliae the property
for other purposes.
While a portion of the handsome
tract will be used for park pur
poses, a group of golf devotees has
started a movement to develop a
west side course on the site. This
plan has the approval of the park
bureau, if the course can be made
"If the city decides that the use
of the major portion of the tract as
a golf course will be beneficial to
the greatest number of people, I am
perfectly satisfied," said Commis
"The porperty is owned 'by the
public and at present no one is de
riving any good out of it. The
county is not in the park business
and therefore I consider that the
city park bureau can do the most
good with the property."
The tract extends south from
Washington park to the Canyon
roadway. A strip of land, 400 feet
in width owned by private interests
separates Washington park from the
new park site.
C. P. Keyser, superintendent of
parks, said yesterday that City Com
missioner Pier, in charge of parks,
will arrange for a ceremony on the
new park site when the formal
presentation of the property is made.
This ceremony will probably be
held in July, when all county and
city officials will take part No
definite plans have yet been an
