BAKERSFIELD, Jan. 28.—San Fran
cisco and Sacramento dogs divided the
honors today at the second day's heats
of the Tacific Coast Field Trials club.
Little Jeff, the dandy setter of Joseph
A. Chanslor, oil magnate of San Fran
cisco, carried off first place in the most
highly prized event of the meet, the
derby. Shasta Queen, the star per
former at J. E. Terry of Sacramento
last year, captured the all 3-Se event,
which was hotly contested. Chanslor's
setter, Old Forester, finished second,
with setter Bohemian Prince, owned by
Judge Carroll Cook of San Francisco,
Second honors in the derby were
awarded to Shasta Duke, owned by
Terry of Sacramento, while the Seattle
setter, Melrose Dude, owned by J. W.
Considine, came third In the derby. The
derby was finished this morning, and
the result was In doubt until the very
last. The decision was received with
CREDIT TO COUTTS
To Wallace B. Coutts, the veteran
handler, belong the signal honors of
the first two days' sport. He handled
every dog that landed in the money in
both events, and every winner was a
fetter. The pointers failed to exhibit
their usual cunning and keenness of
scent and range.
The trials today were better than on
the first day, with promise of keen
sport tomorrow in the members' stake,
in which the owners or members of the
club must handle the dogs.
The members' stake will start on sec
tion 15, which has not yet been trav
ersed and should prove productive of
birds. The clubmen will shoot over
their dogs, which must retrieve the
game in order to qualify. Walter Scott
of San Francisco will handle the dogs
of Judge Cook, Judge Post and others.
THIS DOG SKIPS OUT
An event of the day was when
Judge Post's clever setter Glow was
put down in the al! age. Without so
much as a yelp or a wag of his tail
to trainer or owner, Glow started on
a dead run for the entrance and at a
fast clip disappeared in the direction
of town. All efforts of Judge Post,
who is president of the club, to re
cover Glow failed until when
the setter wa3 returned by a lady who
picked him up in her automobile.
The members of the club held a re
union and banquet at the Southern
this evening. At the annual meeting,
it is stated, the veteran field trials
sportsman, Judge Post of Sacramento,
and E. Courtney Ford, secretary, both
In office for several years, will be un

AS WORTHY OPPONENT
FOR CYCLONE HOPPE
Butchertown Lad Sure to
Have His Hands Full
With Little Tommy
Willie Hoppe and Tommy McFar
land are expected to put up the most
lively four round show in years when
they come together at the Pavilion
rink next Friday night. Hoppe is un
doubtedly the champion of the short
distance lightweights and the best
drawing card in that game, while Mc-
Farland stands cut as the only boy
who has yet been able to hold the
Butchertown terror to a draw.
McFarland fought Hoppe off his feet
when they met three months ago. The
fans were on their toes all the time,
so lively was the milling. McFarland
proved just as game as Hoppe and
fought back every time that Willie
came at him. They were standing toe
to toe and slugging for all they were
worth when the bell sounded the finish
of the battle. There was nothing to
choose be.tween them.
Hoppe beat every other man he met
in the meantime and so did McFarland,
so it looks like an even bet between
them this time. Hoppe probably has
more speed and more stamina, but Mc-
Farland can outbox him any day In
the week. He knows more of the tricks
of the trade and still he is a pretty
rough performer himself. Barring a
knockout at the hands of Willie
Ritchie a year and a half ago, the little
fellow from Hayes Valley has a clean
The chances are that Hoppe will rule
a favorite over McFarland despite the
fine showing which the latter made at
their last meeting. Hoppe is regarded
as Invincible by the Butchertown and
the Mission fans. They fairly Idolize
him and for this reason, they figure
to far outnumber the McFarland
boosters when the boys step into the
center of the ring and get the referee's
Next in line are Johnny O'Leary,
king of the northwestern feather
weights, and Young Abe Attell, the
star performer among the local 128
pounders. This looks like a lightning
match. They seem to shape up evenly
In skill, hitting ability and speed, al
though Attell will have the call be
cause he is better known here. O'Leary
made his local debut two weeks ago
when he beat Manuel Vierra of Oak
land in four rounds. He made a great
hit with all the fans.
Young Wussow, the 125 pound cham
pion of Milwaukee, will show the fans
what he can do against Lem Kegg of
Montana. Kegg is an ideal boxer, very
fast and shifty. Wussow was sent out
here by Tom Andrews, the Milwaukee
sporting man, who recommends him as
a bear. If he lives up to his reputa
tion, he ought to make Kegg hustle
every inch of the way, but he will
have to show the local fans.
Phil Morgan, the local lightweight
who has been going so well of late, will
start against Bubbles Robinson, the
colored lightweight from the south.
Tim Nickola of Manila will tackle Sam
Slavich at the middle weight limit and
Kid Bertleson is going to try out a
Boston bantam weight named Joe
There also will be mlxups between
Grover Hooper and Dick Green, ban
tams, Happy Thomas and "Salinas
Jack" Robinson, lightweights, and Joe
Mackey and Dick Kendall, light

Meehan and Berg Billed
For Oakland Show
Willie Meehan, * looked upon as the
best of the local middle weights, will
oppose Otto Berg of the northwest in
the 10 round main event of the Oak
land Wheelmen's show on the evening
of February 6. They were signed tip
yesterday afternoon to fill in for Gun
boat Smith and Jack Geyer. The lat
ter is said to have deliberately run out
on the promoters, who ha\*e vowed
vengeance upon him.
Meehan and Berg ought to make a
rattling good fight. The local lad has
been going like a champion since Louis
Parente took hold of him. He defeated
all comers save Sailor Grande, whom
he held to a draw. Berg is one of those
rugged scrappers of the Bat Nelson
order. He is well known to the fans
on both sides of the bay, having ap
peared before them many times.
Four battles are also listed.
Joe Azaveda, the Sacramento light
weight, takes on Louis Reese of Los

CUBAN A CHESS WONDER
NEW YORK, Jan. 28.—With only a queen and

champion was tonight able to outwit Harry

at the chessmasters' tournament, thereby keep
ing his slate clean. Capablanca, with seven vic
tories, still leads th" field by a full point. His
nearest competitor. JatTo, also won tonight, de

from Chapes and overtook Jsnowskl, who drew
with Stapfer. Other winners were Kupchik

CHOSEN BY OAKS
Mitze Intends to Take His
Charges in Camp About
Livermore was officially decided on
as the training camp for the Oaks
yesterday morning, when a communica
tion from that city signified the desire
of the Livermore people to accede to
the demands of the Oakland team. J.
O. McKown, who has been representing
Livermore in the negotiations, sent in
the word today that the Merchants*
association had agreed to the terms.
The Oaks stated i-hat they would lo
cate in Livermore If their terms' were
accepted. None of the other towns will
be considered, as Manager Mitze thinks
the Livermore field one of the best in
the country for training, owing to the
fact that that the grounds absorb the
wet easily and dry quickly after a
rain. The Oaks can work out there the
next morning after a hea,vy shower.
The Livermore boosters will see to It
that the grounds are put In proper
shape. The pebbles will be cleared off
and the Infield line extended back to
ward the outfield, a bit back of second
base. The clubhouse, which is located
across the way from the grounds at the
swimming baths, will be fitted with a
stove and hot and cold showers, besides
being rebuilt to brave the wet weather.
Mitze is pleased that the question is
off his mind, and the manager is plan
ning to take his champs Into training
about February 20, three or four day 3
sooner than was originally planned.
As the work on the new park is go
ing on in a very satisfactory manner
and there appears no doubt but that the
park will be ready for the opening
game, Mitze has nothing now to worry
him but the contracts. There are but a
few signatures In, but Mitze Is not
troubled, for he realizes that the boys
don't want to appear in a hurry.
Vinnie Ward, the young recruit who
went in for one game last season and
cleaned things up with a two bagger,
putting the Oaks In the way to a vic
tory, wants to work with the champs
this year. Ward is one of the' likeliest
lads here and is a home product, but
; the team is well filled.
Mission Protest Not in
Accord With Facts
Mission high has protested the right
of Wally Barnes to play with the
Lowell high team in the basket ball
game scheduled to take place tonight,
on the ground that Barnes has pro
fessionalized himself by playing with
the Smilers basket ball team, on which
It Is claimed that one Riordan is a pro
fessional baseball player. The Misslon
ites also claim that Barnes is past the
age limit allowed for subieague com
Secretary Tibbetts of the Academic
league has received the protest and will
report on the matter today in time to
allow Barnes to play or keep htm out
of the game, as the facts warrant.
Mission has not sent in any evidence
on the case at all, but simply makes the
statement that the facts are as they
say. As a matter of fact, the Riordan
Playing with the Smilers is Fred Rior
don, and not Jim Riordan, who was
professionalized by the league a couple
of years ago; and, furthermore, Barnes
still has two years to run before he

MURPHY GETS CHANCE'S WARNING
Peerless One Threatens to Expose Former Boss
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
CHICAGO, Jan. 28.—President Charles
Murphy of the Cubs admitted the re
ceipt of the much discussed telegram
of warning from Frank Chance today.
"The California telegram is here,"
said Murphy, who had previously
branded the message a "fake" con
cocted by a Los Angeles news bureau.
"It was on my desk this morning."
The Cub boss did not appear to be
In the best mood as he continued:
"We shall submit to no more In
terviews on the playing strength of
the All Star Cubs, nor give out any
statements on our future prospects un
til we first get Chance's approval. In
the meantime Chance, or anybody else,
has my consent to tell anything about
me. I have refrained from indulging
in any controversy with Chance, not
through fear, but because of sympathy
over his nervous condition following
his recent operation."
Chance's message was not shown by
Murphy. It is said to have contained
the following: "j consider it beneath
my dignity to answer your insinuations
regarding myself. However, if I hear
of any more Interviews with you de
rogatory to me I will shut you up as
quickly as I did last fall. This goes."
MURPHY BOOSTS PLAYERS
Murphy refused to discuss the state
ment In detail. He declined to answer
any questions concerning what Chance
might have "on him." He says every
thing he has done in baseball has been
honorable and he fears no one. '
Murphy announced the receipt of
"Red" Corridon's and Fred Toney's
A manager is merely Incidental to a
big league baseball club in the belief
of Murphy. In his latest signed arti
cle the Chicago magnate expresses the
opinion that Mordecai Brown, the once
great pitcher, "made" Frank Chance,
former manager of the Cubs.
The Cub boss protests against the
habit of fans giving leaders of big
league clubs all the credit and asks
a share of the glory for players.
Murphy's statement opens with a
question as to whether the manager
shall receive all the credit for the suc
cess of a ball club. The Chicago mag
nate answers the question as follows:
SPEAKS FOR HIMSELF
"Thinking persons, whose knowledge
of the national game is largely super
ficial, would be led to believe so from
the artificial clamor which has been
indulged in lately anent the retire
ment of Frank Chance from the Cubs.
"Are we to forget Evers, Schulte,
Tinker, Zimmerman, Brown, Archer,
Saler, Cheney, Lavender, Richie, Reul
bach, Miller, Good, Sheckard, Leach
and others and agree that Chance de
serves all the credit for the recent
good showing of the Cubs? Think it
all over and you will doubtless come
to the conclusion that a desire to
'pan' me Is back of much of the re
cent hubbub. I have been pictured in
every conceivable light by those who
enjoy throwing rocks at one who hap
pens to be at the head of a ball club.
"Of course, a competent, painstak
ing manager Is a big asset and quit*
necessary to success, but he is not th_
'whole cheese.' Chance really has
been fortunate in Chicago by being
surrounded by smart players. He said,
probably in pique, that Tinker was th_
smartest. Does Chance know which is
the smartest or was he trying to show
that I had erred in my selection?
"Evers' brain alone won one cham
pionship. Now the question before the
house is 'will Evers have some pitcher
who can do for him what Brown did
CHANCE ON THE JOB
Chance has several trades in pros*
pect, some of w-hlch he expects to>
Jlose when he comes east In a few
ays. Chance is particularly anxious
to land Joe Berger, the Los Angeles
star shortstop of last year, who is on
the White Sox roll. As Manager Jimmy
Callahan has a number of inflelders, it
is believed he will agree -to trade Ber
ger to New York after the training
season unless the coast player develops
into a "phenom."
Chance recently said that he will
make a second place team of the Yan
kees the coming season if he can get
the men in trade that he ia planning
on, and he feels that he can.
He has been making a careful study
of the men on the American league
teams and says he sees several stars,
who, if taken from their present po
sitions, will get back into their old
form. These men are the ones he will
try to secure.
