FORMATION OF THE STATBOWLINLEAUE AND OTHER SPORTING ITEMS
WILLBE BAD FOR THE LEAGUE Split-Up Might Kill the Pacific Northwest Organization Just at This Juncture, When the League Is Getting Strong...Walkerville Folks Would Like to See Jerry Go Against Mose Again. That's bad news froml the c(oast which tells us that Portland and Seattle have jumped the Pacific Northwest league and will hereafter be found in the ranks of the Pacific Coast league. Dissension is always had, but when it breaks otrt in a baseball league there is sure to be all kinds of trouble. The hit ter war which has been waged between the National and American leagues is an example of what friction can do inl this line; and yet an outlawed league down in California, represented by some inn-head ed, sore-headed, would-be nianagers, seems to be willing and anxious to throw down the gauntlet and start a fight to the finish where before all was quiet and Irosper oUs. According to a dispatch from the coast to the Inter Mountain,. Portland and Seat tle are to join with San Francisco. I.os Angeles, (Oakland and Sauramento in the formation of a Pacific coant ),aseball league. Hlenry tHarris, who poses as the hons of baseball matilters in California. paid a visit to Seattle recently. lie was accomnianied by Jack Marshall, and the two went about a quiet deal that if carrieI through will eventually kill the great Amuerican gIanI in the Northwest. It is said the I'mrt"and Pacific league club controls the groundsl in that city where all the I'acilc Nort urhwhst gan!'. ere phlayed this year, and litat they will hold the gronmds for the new league be ing formed.

The upshot of the whole matter will be thit the Pacific Northwest le.iague will not abandon Portland aind Seattle, but will place teams in the field to represent those cities just as in the past, and then the ptublic can sit back in its seat and watch the fight between the two leagues, which will be a hitter one and to a finish.

He is unusually large for a year ling and resembles not little the sire of his dam, the great Faraday. His owner will let him become fully developed before training him to any extent, but about mid summer next year he wil be a bidder for a number of classic a-year-old engagements, and his conformation indicates that he will lie able to make good the fond expectations of his owners.

Paris, Dec. ii.-American makers of automobiles are practically unrepresented at the fourth annual show of automobiles which has just opened auspiciously at the Grand Palace with President Loubet and several cabinet ministers among the throng of visitors. The vast amphitheater was filled with the latest types of racers and coaching and commercial vehicles, chiefly ponderous and powerful French, Swiss and Belgian makes contrasting with the few light, graceful American machines. Among the novelties exhibited were auto mobile canoes and launches. One of the latter, luxuriously equipped, was built for the sultan of Morocco. A representative of one of the American companies said: "The absence of auto mobiles of the American type is due to the fact that the American manufacturers are so busy supplying the home demand that they are unable to compete with the Euro pean trade and the American types are chiefly for city streets, whereas the mountt tain coaching of the continent requires powerful climbers." President I.oubct gave special attention to speed machines. He was also struck with the ilumerous and remarkable appli (ations of automobliles to agriculture. 'lihe minister of agriculture, M. IMougeot, is said to have the inltention of making a special study of the application of auto mobiles to agriculture. MAXEY HAUGH KNOCKED) OUT Oakland.

The trophy to be contested for will be furnished by the Brunswick-Balke-Collen der company, and will be a very handsome one, valued at $Soo. The trophy was olfered by the company, and the league offitials were not slow to accept it. Another stipulation in the by-laws was that teams to qualify must pay an entrance fee of $1o, and this amount must be forth coming before the fight of the year.
