Seattle, Wash., March 14.-The de,
mination of the l'acific Nurthweast leagI e
to invade the. two leading cities of CpII
fornia has created consternation in tle
outlaw camp. The "Kernal" and '"Ik "

T'here is a hit of un rilten history in
this connllctioll that is interesting. The
outtlans went to lac"b In urlh, the head
i.f the Seattll I': <tric ciompany, which
otins he groutnds usedt by i)ugd:Ile last
yeair, andl asked him if the would close ap
the tpark if they wauld build a n.w park.
There was nothing said at that time
abouit putting an outlaw teamn ill this city,
and it was understood that the park was
to be rented to Dugdale, and these men
were to build it simply as an investment,
NIr. Furth so understood the ma;tter and
agreed to close up the old park. With
this promise the conspirators Ielased the
ground and then sprung the outlaw teanm,
hoping thereby to crowd I)ugdale off the
lasehall tap. Since then. however, Mr.
I:rtlh hats bt shown that l)utgdale had
brel, promised the use of the grounds for
threec ye.ars. which would allow him to
use the park this year. Though the lease
Is not in writing, It has always been un
derstood that it was to run for three
years, and Dugdale made his contracts
with advertisers on that basis. Mr. Furth
has become convinced that Dugdale has
a good claim on the grounds, and because
deception was practiced in getting him
to promise to close up the old park he
now wants to withdraw that promise and
allow Dugdale to stay where he is. The
pirates are trying to hold him to his
word. This matter will be settled up this
week, and if Dugdale is allowed to re
main in the old park he will have every
thing his own way. A majority of the
city council is opposed to putting a street
through the grounds for this year at least,
so that everything looks rosy for the fat
Dugdale Goes to 'Frisco.
Aflfairs being in sucht good shape int
Seattle, Dugdale left the first of the week
for San Francisco to help McCloskey and
I.ucas get things moving in the two new
cities of the league. McCloskey sent for
him and, though Dugdale has a lot of
work to do at home, he took the first
train for the South. These three expe
rienced baseball men will cause "Uncle
llenry" Ilarris many sleepless nights this
year. Already Harris has lost his confi
dent tone, for lie knows that he will have
the fight of his life to hold his own in
San Francisco, where he is anything but
popular with the sporting public,

from C'alifornia a meeting will be held
ini Tacoma to adopt the playing schedule
and arrange for the opening of the sea
son. The fact that Butte, Helena, Spo
kane, Tacoma, Seattle and Portland stood
solidly behind McCloskey and Lucas in
the fight helped materially in making the
expansion of the league a success, and
has convinced the public that this fight
is to be a hard-oil finish, so far as the
regular teams are concerned,
Jimmy Britt's Foul,
nlimmly Britt losing his fight to Jack
O'Keete in Portland on a foul left a bad
taste in the mouths of the sports In this
rction. A large delegation attended
from Seattle, and they backed Britt to a

.s a left hook to the wind and O'Keefe

tJr the fight dejmotuttrated that the ment

clever and strong for ()'Keefe and was

the light without a scratch, but with a

t-ie.t in the club which pulled off the
fhit. and it was the club that brought
i)'Keefe out from Chicago to meet Britt.
ii coitrse this had nothling to do with
the decision, but it causes talk.
Inlterest is awaketning in the race meet
which is to be pulled off here in June.
.\Asttrances have been received that a
numtllber of California hor enten will brintg
their batlgtails here for the meet. This
is to be a running meet pure atnd simple,
and the harntess horses will have to wait
until next fall for their chance. The
track opened last year is being worked
on all the time and will be in splendid
shape this year. There is some fear that
the anti-ganmling law piassed by the leg
islature will interfere with the racing,
but the horsemen do not think it can lie
stretched to cover that pouilt. They are
going right ahead with their preparations
anjd it is hoped to have a numlber of Mon
taina horses enter the field. The purses
hung up are substantial in size.

ltni.tructor Murphy of the Froadwsay
gymnasiumn and matchnmaker for the club,
has received manlty anonymous letters ask
ing him not to match .\lose .al:ontise
again under the atispices of the club.
Some claim he is a foul tighter and that
he gets too many decisiotns from referees
when defeat is coning his way.
In speaking of such letters Murphy said:
"I agree with many of the writers, as I
think I.aFontise was pretty well done for
when Referee Nolan gave him the decision.
,Iibbs was stronger at the end than in the
early rounds and, in mty upinion, would
have won.
"I will put I.aFontise on again, but lie
mlust meet the man I name atnd let mte
referee. I will match hint with Rubc
Ferns, and I'll assure the public that Ferns
will get the decision if he is the better
man. Should Mose begin to foul, then tlt
Ferns do the same thing. I would referee

fact that Clifford is my pupil, atnd I could
not expect Bishop and Herrera to accept
"I have another pupil, Jack Richards,

strongest lightweight fighter in Butte and
can stand all kinds of punishment. He is
game to the core, and there is ito qiuestion
about his having the punch."
