WOMEN'S RELAY RACE
--AT SPOKANE FAIR
, (Journal Special Service.) : ,
v Spokane, Wash., March 6. Manager
A. H. Co.sgrove of the Interstate fair Is
favorably considering' -the project of
putting on a ladles' relay race as one of
yie features of the fair this fall.
While the matter .has not been def
initely decided upon as yet Manager
Cosgrove believes a ladles' relay race
would be a big attraction and If the
girls can be found to make the ride It
. t ior than likely Jtwlll be put oiuAa
Spokane used to furnish girl riders for
the races In the early days; there la no
good reason why she could not da so
row. ' : 1 - . ,;. ' ::
If the race is put on It will probably
be about a 20-mile race, with four miles
of a run each day and a relay at the
end of each mile. Each girl wilt use
the same four horses each day, with one
horse In reserve In case of accident
; "If we can get . the riders," said Mr.
Cosgrove. "I believe the race will be a
good card. The girls will In all prob
ability ride astride as that reduces the
chance of an accident In a race of this
fcind-at Helena last year there waa only
R4 seconds difference in the time ot the
first and last In the whole 29 miles.

COMA
NEW SUGGESTIONS
FROM FAIR FANS
The appended suggestions have been
received regarding ladles' day at the
baseball games. The agitation seems to
have stirred up the fair fans to a certain
extent, and for tghe benefit of those who
are worried, the suggestions are herein
presented: ; 1
'"To the Sporting Editor of The Jour
nal Dear Sir; I don't see any reason
why ladles should be guests of the club
on certain days any more than the men.
Why not do away with ladles' days and
charge them 60 cents the same as the
men? If they want to see a game for
2& cents let them ait on the bleachers.

COLONEL FISHER
READY FOR SEASON
Michael Angelo Fishen to whom sn
enterprising newspaper correspondent
has added the title of Colonel, has ar
rived In Fresno with a fresh supply of
gags and new stories.
"I'm gofug to train with my men and
start the pace this time," said Mike
Fisher yesterday. "The fact of the mat
ter is that the ability of Phil KneU
last season taught your uncle a lesson
that he Is r.ot likely to forget Phil is
no older than 1 am, and Is no younger,
either, and It struck me that it a lit
tle training would put him into such
shape that he could prance around like
a two-year-old, that a similar course of
physical science stunts would put me
into such shape that again the public
would watch me In left field. You may
see me In my old position' before the
season is done. Why, there's Pete Loh-
man. -1 have certainly as good a right
to play as he has, for he is two days
older than ! am I looked the record
up and I know, Besiaes, out of practice
as X, am, I can play . better bail than
Pop' Lohman, and always could. With
out desiring to boast, he never was in
my class." '-
And to begin with, Fl&her wrote a
letter tho other day to Governor Par

bowling, baseball, . Indoor and outdoor,
basketball, golf, football and track
events have taken great strides. The
interest Is not confined to the men alone
by any means, the women sharing, in
the work. Every week the women have
their regular bowling contests at the

the scores made speak well for their
skill and endurance. Bowling has taken
a firm hold upon Portland and before
long several big tourneys will be played
here. . . . : '-

spent In every line . pf . sporting, and

for a baseball team for Oregon City has
at last worked itself out. The' men who
were working up the matter; here were
either discouraged 0' thought the ven
ture would be a failure, so nothing has
been done. This will prevent Oregon
City from becoming-a member of the
Oregon State Baseball league. The
league has already started and the dif
ferent managers are now, signing play
ers. Harry Edmonson was in Oregon
Clty-tho first part W the wreek looking
up players. He Is the manager of tho
Capital City team and expects a very
successful season. , He has his eye on
several players here and It is believed
that he is. negotiating with Ed Rapp
or this city, and trying to secure Jiis
services. At any rate they were talk
ing over the proposition but whether
Rapp will play in a Capital City uni
form next season is not known. Oregon
City will not be represented in the up

ily mean that there will be no team here.
There will be a team here but who will

COMPANY F'S CAPTAIN
MAKES A STATEMENT
Portland,' March 6. To the SporUng
Edltffr of The Journal. Dear-Sir: In
answer to the statement made In yes-'
terday's . Oregonlaii that company 9
team won because the umpire gave then
the game, and that I said we won thr
game on that account I wish to regis
ter a denial of ever having uttered such
a statement Company F'S team won
on its merits and decisively outplayed
their opponents. I asked Mr. Dohle to
umpire and Captain Austin of company
H agreed to him. If Mr." Dohle made
the. statement attributed by company H
to him, before the game,' then why did
not company H say something then?
For myself, I feel that Mr. Dohle never
said anything that has been charged to
him. Why, we shut out company H fof
seven innings. - Does that lpok as If the
umpire helped us? The truth of the'
matter is that they were so sure of win
ning that they could not appreciate how
a defeat would feel, and thus their kick. '
Respectfully -yours, ':- -- - --v
