; r The unfinished business of the Oregon
, iPUh and Game association, which , was
postponed from the annual meeting1, was
: taken up and concluded at a smoker
given lant eveninar in the rooms of the
Mining Exchange. The minutes of the
previous meeting and report "of the treas
urer ocnetltuted the routine, work, after
which several able papers on Interesting
sporting subjects were read by . Dr.
Ernest F. Tucker,- Mr, James F. Tay
lor, Capt. Jesse M. Baker, U. 8. A., Dr.
Ney Churchman and Hon. T. V. Holman.
Dr. Tucker opened: the program with
a paper on "Field Trials' which he has
become the advocate of since witness
ing somo very interesting . events of
that kind which took place last fall upon
Whidby Island In Puget sound. ",.
Advocates yield Trials Bet.
Dr. Tucker thinks that the establish
ment of an association formed for the
purpose of holding field trialsand cours
ing events in this state would be of in
terest, a well as of benefit; to the local
sportamen, ' ., - ,'-". ' ,
-. In San Francisco and many other lot
calltles in California tne game of coursr
ing attracts almost a much attention
as horse racing,, and if a club was or
ganised here, under whose' 'auspices ft
coursing program 'could be held, a great
number of these California dog fanciers
would come here to compete in ' the
trials. We could draw not only from
California for entries, but from all parts
of the United States and Canada, where
high-priced dogs are raised for hunting
purposes. , ' '
Dr.- Tucker's remarks were enthusias
tically received, and will probably bear
frutt. ' ,
president Taylor; of the Kennel, club
read an Interesting paper on 4the ''Up
land birds of Oregon.": Capt. Jesse M.
Baker delivered ft forceful address upon
the subject of "Game Protection.". :
Captain Baker's Bemarks. .
Captain Baker skid In part'.' "This Is
.not a ' new subject. It has probably
been discussed more frequently, with
energy and at times bursts -of passion,
than any other subject of outdoor exer
, else, sport, or business profit. , It - is
with great difficulty that a majority of
men of . any organization, be it a Ash and
game protective association or a legis
lative body," can be brought to the same
way or tmnxing.' Tne. two great stum
bling blocks are the' gupposed natural
rights of man and the supposed personal
ownership In fish and game,.
"With regard to the natural" rights of
man to hunt and fish he has been gradu-'
ally giving away his natural rights until,
he has nothing left but his legal rights,
surrounded by the particular laws of
the community In- which' he- desires to
fish and hunt .nviiv ' ' , ,, '
"A to srppprty In' ilih and garnet't
,waa In this country prior to the haet
ment of colonlar'Iaws.p tlie property of
man without restriction.' provided Re
would catch or kill the same.
"We have beert graduating, ' however,
first) by- township and county, "as the
laws of many states yet recognize, until
we have arrived at the conclusion. In
most of : our advanced states, that all
fish and game is the property of the
state. Now. why not go one Btep far
ther, and arrive at the safe conclusion
that all fish and fame Is the property of
the government,.' whose?. duty It should
be to furnish full protection to the
same? 1
"I therefore sumblt 4 the .' foregoing
knowing at the time that It will - not
meet with your entire approbation, and
in fact it does nt entirely meet my own;
yet I believe it to be in a proper and
Intelligent direction, and If the sugges
tions 1 now offer, the means
of making but a few converts, 1 1 shall
feel amply repaid for thei privilege of
addressing 'you this evening." ;--
Captain Baker la a comparatively new
member of. the association, and: as .an.
enthusiastic sportsman . he takes great
Interest in legislation for - the protec
tion Of game.
Dr. Churchman Instructs and Amuse.
Dr. Ney Churchman delivered an In
structive as well as humorous address
upon the habits of the wily trout. The
doctor's ? remarks were well rendered
and received amid . considerable mlrtli
by his hearers, whose risibilities were
aroused by the speaker's droll remarks,
with which he sandwiched his other
wise quite instructive lecture. Tho only
fault that could possibly be found with
the doctor's remarks Is that they were
not long enough. '
. Holmaa's Able Address.
' lion, F. V. Holman then read a paper
which was of the "stralght-from-tho-shoulder"
order, and had for Its , object
the violation of the game laws by peri
sons who pose as purely amateur sports
men. ' Mr,. Holman earnestly advocated
the -co-operation of the sqclety in . the
matter of prohibiting the sale of game
fowl to the- markets. This seems to be
the chief evil of hunting, for it causes
the huntsmen not only to disregard the
law providing for a closed game season,
but also causes sportsmen (not .true
amateur sportsmen) to disregard the
limit placed upon 'the number of birds
or ot,her game that shall be killed by
each hunter during one day, or a sea-
sun, as me chub may De, Mr. HOIraRn
was emphatic in his denunciation of- the
'would-b amateur who knowingly dis
regards the gam protection laws elm
ply because of the desire to sell his
ket cannot, pose as an amateur sports
man, and when he Is found guilty of
such r an offense he should be quickly
eliminated from the ranks, of the ama
teurs, who are the only real sportsmen.
Mr. Holman further stated that he did

Do the magnates of the Portland Base
ball association contemplate the taking
In of . Mr. D. K. Dugdale of Seattle as
manager and part owner of the local
team? -
. This momentous, question is the prin
cipal toplo of conversation in local base
ball circles and the vast majority of
the fans seem to think that a serious
mistake would ' be made if the rotund
Seattle cherub were taken into the fold
of the Paclflo Coast league in this city.
Dugdale a Cheap Manager..
It Is a well known fact that ? Dug
dale is what is called a cheap manager,
that Is, one who secures - ball players
for the smallest possible salary, and
only by his knowledge of the game does
he , manage to make ' a showing ' with
them,- and in a minor league at that.
The Paclflo Coast league is one of the
best leagues in the country, and as all
the clubs in this league are made up
of the best talent that can be secured,
a' team the like of which Dugdale would
In all probability secure would not finish
as good as Oakland did last season.
Dugdale' s type of ball tossers with
but few exceptions are of the Treadway
order,' in other words, has-beens. By
the cheap policy he displayed In 1902
and 1903 he lost the best players he had
vis: Hurlburt, Scbwarts, - Stovall and
Hogg. Now Portland won't stand for a
cheap team of has-beens, so if the local
magnates contemplate any change It
will be well for. them to secure a first
class team and pot one of the usual
Dugdale order.- - - . 1
Dugflal Xa Coming.'
Mr. Dugdale is- on his- vnr to this city
to confer with the local magnates, and
notwithstanding the denials of several
of: the club officials, It looks very much
as though the . former enemy of the
Coast league was to be patted on the
back and given the best town on the
northern, circuit,' if not In the league.
Now, If such a- move is contemplated, -which
evidence at -hand seems to indi
cate, the question arises, "What has
Dugdale ver done to be so fatly re
warded?" Why should a man be given
a plum by .this league when . he has
been defeated by them? And why should
an outsider be allowed to buy the club
when there , is , an able and . competent
local man who is willing and anxious to
The magnates of the local club should
conalder all the different, phases of the
question before admitting a man who
has been the most determined enemy of
this league throughout the past .season,
and only because he saw he : was tip
against ' the real thing, when Tacoma
deserted the Lucas cause, .'did he sell
out his Interests in Seattle.
Now, . Dugdale is undoubtedly' a good
manager In a Paclflo National league,
but cart he "guarantee to give
Portland' a better class of baseball, than
they had last year? The answer is
plaln'no, for he is not the man who will
pay the money to get the best talent,
as Isnow being done by the other
coast clubs, and therefore1 with the
former- Seattlelte at the helm Portland
can expect a. team of, about Oakland's
last season capacity, which was about
on a par with the team Dugdale had af
ter the loss of .Hogg, Hurlburt, Stovall
and Hulen last season. . " i
Ely Should Be Given a Chanpe. -.
t W.' Fred Ely, the present manager Of
the team, although not yet. signed him
self, has been, working hard, to secure
a good team tojrepresent this city, n
the coming race and some of the men
whom he has acquired or 1st negotiating
with would give Dugdale, heart , failure
had he to meet the salary they have
agreed to play for. . These men do not
demand exhorbitant salaries, merely an
amount about eiitial to that which they
secure In the East and which seems
very reasonable to the local magnates.
- Sojne time 1 ago Mr. . Ely : received a
letter from Jesse Tannehlll In which
'"Tanny" expressed a desire - to go In

played In it with but very little incon

of the crack relay team of Notre Dame
