JUNEAU PLAYS I
LOOSELY AND !
MINERS WIN
Treadwell passed Juneau In the race
for the Channel gonfalon yesterday
by winning from the Radonich crew
on the local grounds, 5 to 3. Tho Is
landers gave Kllleen great support
and the Treadwell hurler allowed but
fqur hits, although be gave free trans
portation to six of the local team. On
the other hand Granville pitched good1
ball for Juneau, but his two errors,
Healy's muff of an infield fly and
King's wild heave to first base were
costly miscues.
Captain Redmond, of the Treadwell
team, was hit on the head by one of
Granville's fast ones, in the second
inning, and retired In favor of Pitt
man. the slim twirler going to right
field and Worth coming to the mid
dle sack. Cy Wright was knocked
down in the sixth frame by one of
Kilieen's inshoots which caught him
on the head. A squad of players ren
dered first aid and he continued the
game.
Features of the game were Roso's
? ? ? ? 1 " 1 ?
home run, Pittman's good fielding In i
right field for Treadwell, a nice stop ;
of a ground ball by Baxter, In the
fourth, and Fox's running catch of
Wright's drive in the olghth inning.
A small crowd witnessed the game, In
spite of the fact that the admission
price was reduced from 50 to 25 cents.
By winning, Treadwell has a one
game lead over Juneau In tho 20
game series, the Islanders having tak
en nine games to eight won by Ju
neau.
Seized Game in Second
Treadwell put the clumps on the
contest in the second inning. Kertls
led off with a single. Dahl bunted
and Granville threw wild to Healy
to catch him, both runners being
safe. Redmond was beaned. a dizzy
ing straight ball striking him on the
head. He retired from the game and j
Fox was put on first to run for him.
With the bases full Lewis struck out
but Dutton slammed a scorcher at
Granville. The big pitcher spoared
1 it with his bare hand, but was unable
to field the ball in time to catch Ker- j
tls, who scored. Killeen's scratch
hit scored Dahl and Fox. Kllleen
then stole second. With Dutton on
third. Worth walked. A moment lat
er King threw to catch Worth nap-j
ping at first, but the peg went wild
and Dutton scored. Wright threw
the ball to Baxter whilo Klllocn was i
starting home, and the Island pitcher J
was cut off at the homo plate, Bax- <
ter to King. The score kid hung up J
a four spot on the board, and Juneau <
started in on Its up-hill climb.
The locals got their firBt blood in
the fourth. Rose picked out a good
ono and lifted it over the fence for
a homo run. The ball struck on the
top of the fence and bounded oyer
into Gold Creek.
Trcadwoll scored again in the (:
fifth. After Killcen had fanned Healy 1
dropped Worth's infield skyscraper. ]
Fox hit safely. Granville fumbled
Woods' tap and the bases wore pop
ulated. Kertis lifted a tantalizer
back of third, which Callan dropped
after a hard run, the chance being
almost Impossible to field. Worth
scored on tho play, but Fox had hung
to second, and was forced at third.
Dahl forced Wcods at third for the
final out.
Granville Bats in Runs
Juneau's last two scores came in
the fifth Inning. Baxter worked Kll
leen for his second base on balls.
Pittman robbed King of a hit by gath
ering in his drive to right field.
Wright forced Baxter at second, and
things looked glum for Juneau, as
two were out. Fossas hit for two
bases, sending Wright to third, and
Granvlllo came to bat. After getting
two strikes, he hit safely through
the Infield, scoring Wright and Foss
as. Rose was passed to first but
Henly went out on en infield tap to
Worth.
Killeen's wildncss nearly got him
in trouble in the sixth. He walked
Callan, but Boeckel's hard drive was
caught by Pittman and Baxter popp
ed up to Dutton. Then King was
given a free ticket to first and Wright
was hit by a pitched ball. With the
bags full Fossas tried hard for a hit,
but was unable to delivor. sending
an easy one to Killecn. Again in the
eighth, with one man on, Juneau had
a chance to score, but Fox made a
running catch of Wright's line drive
for the third out. Treadwell had
men on bases in the eighth and ninth,
but could not send them around.
The game was marred by kicking
at the umpire and the fans panned
Acting Captain Wood unmercifully
after Wood had protested two of
: Brewster's decisions. Killeen also
got In bad with the fans back of the
home plate, when hp got sore at one
of the decisions.

rOUR CLUBS NOW IN
THE "NORTHWESTERN" j
SEATTLE, August 2. ? Aberdeen 5
ind Victoria today dropped out of the '
Northwestern Baseball League and
:he season will bo finished by Seat- 1
Jo, Tacoma, Vancouver, B. C., and J
Spokane, as a 4-club circuit
Feds Have Their Number
One of tho main reasons for the
heavy hitting of the Federal Leaguo
Is because the batters are strangers
to most pitchers and the outfielders
don't known Just whero to play for ?
the different batters. The men have ?
not been playing agalnsC each other
often enough to know tho peculiari
ties of each othe& Chief Bender,
pitching for the Baltimore Feds, now
looms up as a real cxamplo of the dif
ficulties a pitcher encounters in the
new league. The chief knows the
weaknesses and the power of every
batter In tho American League. He
knew Just what kind of a ball to
throw. As a resul:, the Chief rarely
was hit for more than 6 or 7 safeties
per game.
But In the Federal Leaguo it Is dif
ferent. The batters for the most part
are strangers to the big Indian. He
hasn't got their "measure" as he had
of tho batters In the American league,
therefore tho Chief has to experiment
and the experiments have proven very
costly.
The Chief's showing in the Federal
League has been miserable In com
parison with his showing In all tho
years be was pitching star baseball
in the American.
Goin' To Beat Doble?
Another man Is going to try to
trim Gil Dobie's Washlhgton war
riors.
Read this from the Spokesman Ro
view, Spokane:
R. E. Harmon, for tho last two
years athletic coach at Gonzaga uni
versity will leave this evening for
San Francisco over tho North Bank
road. In the South Mr. Harmon will
hold a conference with Ralph Stroud
manager of athletics at the University
of California, with whom he has an
appointment and is Is possible that
the ruddy complexioned coach will
assist in putting the California grid
iron warriors in shape to trim Gil
Dobie's University of Washington ag
gregation next fall.
It is expected that California will
employ a large number of coaches to
teach its big squad the American
game, so long a stranger there, and
Harmon, who understands the forward
passing game perfectly, should prove
a welcome addition to tho staff.
Chance at Santa Clara
If he does not catch on at Califor
nit it is possible that Harmon will
get a chance to coach Santa Clara, if
that school returns to tho American
game, particularly slnco a largo
part of his experience has been with
Catholic schools.
Harmon has had years of exper
ience as a coach, having turned out
a championship team in Butte the sea
son before he came to Spokane. Pre
vious to that he coached college
teams in Illonols. His last two years
in college he played with Denver uni
versity when that team won the
championship of the Rocky Mountain
conference.
A Motorcycle Message
President Wilson's message to the
president of the Panama-Pacific Ex
position, which is being carried from
Washington to San Francisco by re
lay motorclclist members of the Fed
erated American Motoi cyclists, ar
rived In Chicago July 21, twelve hours
behind the schedule time because of
bad roads and storms. Tho message
received by. President Charles E. Es
sig at the Sportsman's club of Amer
ica, and left half an hour afterward
on its journey across the country in
charge of the three who will carry it
to Sterling, 111.

Veteran "Hlg" Still Wins
Pitchers may come and pitchers
may go, but Irving Higgenbotham,
who is earning his daily bread at the
present writing by twirling for the
Pacific Coast League, goes on for
ever.
When the season of 1915 has passed
into history Hlgglnbotham will have
completed his twenty-first year in
baseball as a pitcher.
It was away back In. 1894?when he
was only 12 years old?that HIggon
hotliam started his carper in the na
tional pastime as a member of a
mining camp team that played only
Sunday baseball in the Black Hills
of South Dakota.
Higgenbotham pitched semi-pro and
independent baseball from that
yead until 1906, when he signed his
first professional contract with the
Tacoma (Wash.) team of the North
western league. Two years later he
graduated into the National League
with the Chicago Nationals. Later he
(oined the St. Louis Nationals.
Losing the effectiveness demand
ed in the big Eastern leagues, Hig
genbotham was sold to the Toledo
(Ohio) squad of the American Asso
:tation. Ho remained there only one
season, however, and was sold to
Portland, which club has won two
pennants since he joined it in 1912.
Higgenbotham has won exactly 74
games in the Pacific Coast Lcaguo,
while his defeats number an even 50.
n order to establish an average of 25
victories for each year he has been
n the lcaguo Higgenbotham must
vin 24 t games this season, or eight
ess than he won last season.
During his wonderful career Hig
jenbotham has naturally twirled
nany wonderful games, but he points
vith pride to his 1-0 11-inning victory
iver Walter Johnson in Colwell, Ida
to, in 1911. Both he and Johnson
truck out ,nineteeen men in that /
?me. s
That Higgenbotham will not begin
o wane for at least five years is in
icatcd by his present physique and
trength of his pitching arm. He
an work three times a week and C
rithout the slightest trouble bo ready
o take his turn as usual tho next
veek.
Do not "baby your arm," is Higgon- t
lotham's advice to young pitchers.
'If your arm is sore work the sore
less out. Rubbing it only tends to
veaken tho tendons. A rubdown is
ill right before and after you pitch,
lut never take a rub just because J
'ou thing your arm needs. And do J
lot bo afraid to expose your arm to J
he climatic conditions. In other J
vords, just act natural like a person J
who never attempted to throw u base J
jail platowards would." J
