Brooklyn Team Mixes War Paint When Salem

Fulton Steps Out, so Battle of Bitter Riv

Biddy Bishop has brought the
Portland semi-professional base
ball clubs up-standing. So much
so that the speedy Brooklyn club,
whtch earlier in the wek canceled
a game scheduled. With the Sena
tori for next Sunday, called Bish
op ;by telephone and asked to be
allowed to come. , :
'Have our check made out."
said the Brooklyn manager, "for
weare going to take: your money."
It looks as if Brooklyn is com

handed the Portland clubs yester
day through the columns of the
Portland News. It happened like
The Montayilla club was" sched
uled with the Senators! for next
Sunday in Salem. Monday the
Montavilla manager, called Bishop
and told him that because of . the
loss of players who 'had signed
up far the fall tournament in
Portland it would be impossible
for him to bring his club to Sa
lem. Bishop immediately arrang
ed a game with Brooklyn, which
is said to be faster than Monta
villa. In fact its position on the
percentage list proves this. But
on Tuesday the Brooklyn mana
ger changed his mind land tele
phoned Bishop that his team. too.
would be unable to come. Then
Bishop arranged a game with the
Fulton Athletic club.
But the Portland Journal had
some mean things to pay about
Bishop on its sporting page, charg
ing him with side-stepping - the
fast teams and bringing the easy
ones to Salem. .Then Bishop spoke
out. The result was that the
Brooklyn manager' last night
called up and asked to have the
game here re-arranged for next
Sunday. ! Bishop had to get the
consent of the Fulton manager,
which was readily given, and Ful
ton will come a week from Sun
day.. ! - : 1

Dan Coffey Did Not Feel at
Home When He Looked
Over His Old Haunts
Dan Coffey was' in Salem Wed
nesday. -He was7out at: the old
Coffey farm, on prospect hUI, six
or seven miles south of Salem, and
nothing' looked natural to him. He
did not feel at home.
; His father was Bartholomew
Coffey, known to old residents,
thirty to forty years ago, and he
owned a farm of about 1500 acres
of fine land lit the Prospect hill
district, southwest of Liberty, and
extending down to near East In
dependence. Bartholomew Coifey died many
years ago. He had a son named
John, well known here in the old
times; and another son Dan. It
was Dan who was1 visiting Salem.
Dan found that! the Sky Line
orchard had been i developed on a
part of the old Coffey farm, and
in every other ; way things had
changed out that way.
Also, things had changed in Sa
lem. He did upt find the dusty
dirt streets that were mud holes
in the rainy season, as in the old
days. Everything, almost, was
new to him. jv
Salem did not look like Salem
to Dan Coffey. His old friends
were mostly gone; many of them
to the undiscovered countries' lu
the vast spaces; beyond the stars
So Dan moved on to Portland, and
after a few days he will be on hi
homeward way "
He now lives In Los Angeles,
where his address is 1239 West
