BAKERSFIELD
. (Journal Special W-ie..)
Bakersfleld. CaL( Feb. i.i-The mim
bers of the Portland baseball team are
rapidly congregating In this city, and In
a few day they will' be working in their
regular positions. , Acting Captain Ike
Butler is in charge of the . team Until
the arrival of Manager Ely and Captain
Castro. , Butler says that he expects Ely
today, and Castro by Sunday. Accord
ing to advices received by the Portland
players, the much-disputed Castro- is
positively on his way to this city, and
upon his arrival home arrangement may
be perfected whereby he wilt play with
Portland. ; .,
Those of the Portland club now here
are indulging in light exercise, , except
Butler, Kadeau, Freeman, ' Francis and
Steelman, who have become almost sea
soned in the" time they have been here.
Shields, Shea and Drennan -took a spin
on the road- yesterday,- after-whicn a
good rundown finished their day's exer
cise, i y K ,.. -;.
Morris Steelman and Ike Francis are
wonderful throwers, having a speedy
and accurate delivery. Steelman car
ries himself like a big leaguer, and his
throwing to second Is one of .the most
accurate ever witnessed here. '
. Francis is still' somewhat overweight
and when he gets down to fighting
weight will rank, among the fastest men
on the club. ,
Phil Nadeau And Jerry Freeman have
endeared themselves' to the local fans,
who have watered them work; and are
as great favorites in this town -as they
are said to be in Portland. Every small
boy in this town knows Ham Iberg, and
they follow him around with admiring
yes whenever he appears on the streets.
Ike Butler will probably pitch the
whole of Sunday's game for Portland,
for the other players will be troubled
with sore muscles, after their long win
ter's reet.
U
NEW SPORT THAT
ATTRACTS ATTENTION
There Is , something new under the
sun. It is scooterlng. Comparatively
few sportsmen have heard of scooterlng,
but their number will be larger next
year. Sscooterlng may be defined a fly
ing over ice and skimming over water.
Its great advantage lies in the fact that
you do-Tiot have- to change -ear;
The Ice yacht' is a rapid transit de
vice with Infernal accommodations, and
dangerous possibilities, If the ice be in
firm. The. scooter is an almost equally
speedy contrivance in which you can
find real comfort and feel -perfectly se
cure that If your craft does happen to
take a plunge into water it will return
to the ice again without subjecting you
to more serious discomfort than a dash
of spray. "V ".--" -'-.---"w
The scooter Is a real boat that travels
equally well. If not equally fast, over Ice
or water. It has metal-shod runners to
carry it over the ice and a water-tight
hull to carry it over water. It has a
cockpit that will accommodate two- per
sons comfortably and one or two more
on a pinch.. The hull Is almost an ex
act counterpart of the sneakbox, from
which it was evidently derived, bat the
bottom is flatter.
The scooter is a Great South Bay
product. The Long Island life-saving
crews, finding much difficulty in crossing
the bay between their homes and the
stations along the beach In the winter
season when the bay was partly frozen
over, contrived a boat on runners that
could be pushed over the Ice and paddled
over the intervening water. They have
been using this for years, but until re
cently it was not very a satisfactory
conveyance, as it was slow and it im
posed a great deal of hard work.
The real scooter did not come Into
existence unttl a year or so ago, when
some village genius with a practical turn
of mind applied the sail. Then it was
suddenly discovered that the queer-looking
little boat was the handiest craft
afloat or ashore.

An Important Factor.
The sportsman has become an Impor
tant factor in commercial and territorial
development. He is spending millions,
and more of them every year, in a
wide range of outdoor pastimes. He la
wielding a potent influence in legisla
tion, and there Is no longer that which
used to be called the "Yankee character
istic' of chasing the dollar in blind
disregard of playtime and wholesome
recreation. The sportsmanship which
flourishes in deep woods, by swift rivers.
on quiet lakes, in marshes where wild
fowl feed, or which finds Its keenest
sest in sailing salt water with lee rail
awash, has drawn the city man by tens
of thousands to make him all over
again. At the same time, it has boomed
the business of providing for the wants
of this multitude, to an extent first
realised by the public at large since the
sportsmen's show has become a fea
ture of the year of entertainments at
Madison Square Garden.
Showing of Census.
The federal census of 1900 Included
this interesting Item: Hunters, trap
pers, guides and scouts, males, 10,020;
females, 1,320; total. 1 1,34b.
A table compiled from numerous gov
ernment reports gave the average wages
of "hunters, trappers and guides" as
$420 a year. This, however. Is not a
fair estimate, for the cash returns do
not include the living which the ma
jority of men following these occupa
tions are able to obtain for a good part
of the year, In addition to , their wages
or profits. As a conservative estimate,
these hardy Americans earn $8,000,000
a year, and their proceeds are but a
small fabtor of the total business of
providing outdoor sport for the man
who seeks It. The revenue of the rail
roads which carry the sportsman to his
favorite haunts wlll amount to larger
figures than this item. The manufac
turer of guns and ammunition, of camp
ing outfits, and flsnmg tackle, of canoes,
and other small craft, of outdoor ward
robes, roll up their respeotive shares
of this great business to amazing totals.

Spokane, Feb. 28. It has been prac

simultaneously in Salt Lake and Spo
kane April 28. Lucas, McCloskey, Wil

this date was agreed to, subject, of
course, to the. votes of Butte and-Salt
Lake.
Butte will come to Spokane for the
first week and Boise will go .to Salt
Lake. Spokane has better weather In, ..
the early part of the season and for this
reason Butte will play here. Salt Lake
has good weather, as- has Boise, but the
receipts will probably be larger in Salt
Lake for the opening games.
Spokane will most -likelyJumn
straight to Salt Lake and return to
Butte and Boise, or, it may be, the trip
will be reversed, as it Is the intention
to have all the teams start ou with,
