PORTLAND IS SURE
ON CLEVELAND MAP
Portland Is surely on the map as far am the average Cleveland
fan Is concerned. First, there Is Jack Graney, who is there with the
long wallops and the long pegs from left field, where he has the
regular's Job. Next there Is Ole Oleson, who will have the regular
berth in the short field. Already he has made a iv hit with the Nap
team. Then there is Gus Fisher, who will alternate with Grover
Land behind the bat. Ous set the players and correspondents talk-
Ing, the other day, by nearly catching George Stoval off first base,
pegging the ball to first in whirlwind fashion, while looking straight
down to second. He pulled that stunt several times on the coast,
but it was new in the east, and even Manager Jim smiled. Then
there is Gregg and Krapp, who by their marvelous pitching won the
Coast league pennant for Portland lust year. McGuire has watched
Oregg like a sick baby. He held him back from pitching a fast
ball for three weeks, and is Just as careful of the big fellow now.
Only during the last few days has Jim given little Krapp much at
tention, but he has changed his mind now. Krapp will stay in the
big bush. The last in the list is Spec Harkness, who pitched for
Portland year before last, and who handed It to the White Sox every
time he went against them last season.

Those Sullivan boys, prodigies of the west, won't do. The lnuoli
heralded championship caliber failed to develop In New York last
night, and Frank Klaus, the husky Pittsburg middleweight, put a
crimp In their aspirations, and at the same time placed himself-one
step nearer the coveted championship, when he planted a left square
ly on the Montana Jack's jaw, which was practically the ending of
the fight. Sullivan took the place of Hugo Kelly, who was scheduled
to meet Klaus. Both Jack and Dan Sullivan are well known to
sporting men on the coast. Dan is a wrestler as well as a boxer, and
Jack a fleet-footed runner aud baseball player. Both are clever with
their bands and have devoted the past two years to boxing. Dan
appeared in a wrestling match in Seattle a couple of years ago, but
showed only mediocre form.
George Longnacker, who is to do duty In the Northwest this
season, says that it would almost pay an umpire to journey to Cali
fornia at his own expense and work gratis in the winter leagues.
All kinds of strange situations confront the umpire down there, ac
cording to George. "We had one question," said he "which even the
Sporting News, the final arbiter in so many matters, failed to decide.
It happened in this wise: • Jack Killilay, the former Spokane pitcher,
wan on the mound, with no one out and three balls and two strikes on
the batsman. Jack wound up, ready to deliver, and, in bringing the
ball back over his head, the sphere slipped from his finders and rolled
over toward third base. I called it a ball and walked the batsman. A
discussion led to a letter to the Sporting News. The answer was that
If a man was on base, the play was a balk, but the editor failed to
state what the alternative was."
Johnson Now Behind
the Bars for 25 Days
(By United Press Leased Wire*)
SAN FRANCISCO, March SO.—.Snug in a cell in the conn
tj jail. Jack Johnson awakened today to a meal of coffee and
mush before going to Police Judge Weller's court to answer
another charge of speeding than the one on which Judge
Treadwell sent the pugilist up for 25 days. The new cliarge,
which may get Johnson a further sentence, was preferred by
Policeman Ceinar, who caught the fighter speeding near the
park. At that time Johnson promised to be good, and the
chnrge was not pressed. In view of his later actions, however,
it is possible the negro may get a further dose of the cells.
Johnson** appeal from the jail sentence he is now undergoing
will be filed by his attorneys today in the court of appeals. In
view of the fact that he pleaded guilty before Judge Tread
will, however, it Is believed doubtful that an appeal will eet the
scrapper out of jail.

LITTLE CHANCE FOR
Jimmy Archer is ambitious, a
good worker and is in the game
every minute. Further than that
he is about as good a catcher as
there is in either of the big
leagues, next to Johnny KHng
but sad to relate he and KHng are
on the same team, the Chicago
Cubs. With the possible exception
of Pittsburg, where old George
Gibson still holds forth, there is
not a team In either circuit which
would not give Jimmy the first
string job, if they had him, but
it is around Jimmy that Chance
will build up the new Cub ma
chine when the great Kling and
others begin to fade away.
Chicago fans said last y»ar that
KHng had ibegun to retrograde and
that the end of the season would
see his finish. Jimmy waa on the
training job early this spring and
has trained hard. But oh! KHng
had trained, too—ln a gymnasium
at Kansas City, his home town.
H e showed up late at the Ijaiaipg
camp, his usual custom, ,*utn«
was down in weight and &rd as
tacks. At the end of three days
he was pegging the ball with his
old-time accuracy, and hitting It
on the nose.
Critics at the camp are enthus
iastic over Kliag this year and say
Scientific men discover that
Jack Johnson's 3-4-inch skull is
what prevents opponents from
knocking him out. Practical men
disagree with this. The latter
claim that what keeps Johnson
from hitting the mat is the soft
gray substance that lies directly
under Jack's skull tone, coupled
with his ability to keep that 3-4
inch ivory piano out of direct
communication with the fists of
those who try to reach It.
