•.. SPOR.TS. •. TUMBLE IN BATTING AVERAGES It Is now up to the Indians to Change their batting rags for some new ones, now they are In Butte. Batting averages were given all sorts of thumps at Grays Harl>or when the Cubs made the Indians look like a sack of s'lelled peanuts. Big Eddie Hutchison is certainly no mud horse, as is evidenced by the slop his average took. He waa away to the good after tho Butte •cries in this city, then Tacoma took a fall or two out of him, and from the looks of the average now Grays Harbor must have taken three falls out of him. McKune went down a little out nearly broke even with the record he left at Tacoma. Becket surely desires to make good and show the fans he MARKSMEN SHOOT AGAIN TODAY The opening shoot of the 12th an nual tournament (if tho Washing ton State Sportsmen's association took place on the grounds of tho Spokane Rod & Gun club at Nata torium park yesterday and there was an interesting gathering of spectators and tra;nhooters.

Shooting commences at 8:30 sharp every morning of the tourna ment. ones shake their heads and quit touting Mellody so fast, it is a fact that a sight of Kitzpatrick in spires confidence in his ability to give and take all Mollody can give and si ill some. Kitzpatrick has boxed three six round draws with Mellody but a six round affair is hardly a criterion of his ability. He will have nn opportunity of show ing just how he classes with Mel lody iv the present match which is scheduled for 20 rounds. Tbe ques tion of training quarters for the men will probably be settled hxlay. occupy the same sphere of inllu ence and power that Tom O'Rourke did In the days of the Horton law. Polock has a lease on Madison Bpuare Garden, which is the most accessible nnd spacious place for hold ins a fight in New York.

MeCarty is being talked of to succeed James Morley in tho management of the Angeles team in the Coast league. Tho play ers, before they will go north, want some substantial indication that the league will not go "bump" ami it looks like the players will ask for "advance" money. SIDELIGHTS ON WELL KNOWN BALL PLAYERS RUBE WADDELL, Were it not that Rube Waddell la ono of the veery greatest pitch •ra the diamond ins produced he might have boon taken up long ago. Bccentrlolty hardly describes his peculiarities. Thare la only one Rube Waddell, and it la perhaps just as well. The queer things he has done would fill a newspaper Column, hut the queer things be has not done, yet la credited with doing, would till the magazine sec tion of the Sunday paper. While he Is known the country round as "Rube," the name under which his second wife recently sued him for maintenance was ccorgo Bdward Waddell. in Philadelphia, where he pitches for the Americana, i; is said he has cobwebs in his cupola. Waddell is ■all handed, strong as the bull of flashan, and possibly a little more Cultured, lie Is the most difficult mau In the business to handle. A goodly part of the playing season ho Is accompanied by a valet who culled his "keeper." Waddell The continued heavy hitting of George Stone, the speedy little out fielder of the St. Louis Browns, is the sensation of the American league. Ho is hitting well beyond the .400 mark and his timely swats have brought many games home to his team already this season. Stone is not a hard hitter—that Is, he does not try to knock the ball over the outfielders' heads, but Is con tent if he sends it on a line too high for the infielders and not strong enough to reach the players in the daisy patches. It is a re markable fact that Stone very sel dom sends the ball through the diamond on the ground; he aims to meet the sphere squarely and drive it out on a line. There is nothing sensational about his play ing and he never administers the wallop that brings the fans cheer ing to their feet as the ball sails ' over the fence, but he keeps a-hit ting and a-hitting in a way that makes life miserable to opposing pitchers and helps his team along In the race. first came into prominence while playing in the old Western league, now called the American Associa tion. He didn't cut up the didoes out there that he .lid afterwards in the East, but he quickly earned the title of "freak." While he should be drawing HSOO to |4000 a season for his ball playing. Wad dell testified in his wife's suit that his salary is $1200 a year. He has been married twice, has whipped one father in law and seems in fair way to lose wife No. 2. Those who admire the "unusual" can gratify their taste in a study of the Reuben one. He is the most persistently unusual person that ever wore a baseball suit. It has been charged that he is almost as freakish as a pritno donna. PAROLEDPRISONLR AGAIN IN JAIL Word has been received that Ed Spencer, murderer of Ella Mundt in Spokane four years ago. and who was paroled a year ago. got drunk in Walla Walla several times and now has been taken beck to the penitentiary for break ing his parolee, it was while on a drunken spree he murdered his sweetheart here.

A vaudeville performance con sisting of all star acts is that being offered at the Washington theater this week, where Yuma, the man of mystery, heads a bill that is strong in every feature. Billy Link, a blackface comedian, eives a clever act that is new and unique while Paul Dickey, dramatic imperson ator. Is clever and entertaining. The balance of the program is good A most successful production is that of "All the Comforts of Home" The play brought out large audi ences during the week and- is most acceptable presented by the com pany. In the role 0» Alfred Hast ings Mr. Douglas handles the com edy: role in an able manner, while the ballance of the company gives him good support. Next week "The Iron Master" will be offered at tte Columbia. The regular weekly matinee performance of "Allf the Comforts of Home" will Ijd on Saturday afternoon. The moving pictures of the San Francisco fires and the ruins wrought by the earthquake which are being shown at the Columbia Theater every afternoon this week are attracting large crowds to the theater. The pictures are proving HIS HONOR OR THE LADY? (This story, which is uncom pleted, comprises five chapters. To the person who writes the best •final chapter to the story The Spo kane Press will give a season pass to all baseball game", on the home grounds. Here is a rare oppor tunity to test your literary attain ments. The story will be published one chapter each day for the next four days.) Night was coming softly down upon tho prertty little town of Red fern. The streets were almost, de serted, save in front of the Imperi al hotel, where the Brownville Blues were staying. Here there was quite a gathering of townsmen to see the members of the baseball team from the rival town of Brownville. In front of the hotel the players sat in a row of chairs and discussed the prospects of vic tory in the morrow'? game. Theey were a husky looking lot of athletes and while they talked confidently of victory, yet It was apparent that doubt as to the out come of the series underlay the current of their confidence. "I tell you," Captain Edgar Davis was saying, "they can't hit Hafford. That drop ball of his will fool the best of them, if he can win to morrow, Jones or Waters will go in tbe next day and even if they should lose Hafforrd should be able to beat them again on the third day, which would give us two out of three." "Don't m:\ko no mistake, cap tain." spoke up Harlan( the short stop; "this fellow Casey, with the Redferns. is all to the good. He's got a 'pabtill sability -ffh' mh mh got a 'spit ball' that can't be beat. If be goes In tomorrow we will earn the game if we get it." While the players conversed in a desultory manner about the mor row's battle the townsmen lingered near, occn.-ionaily commenting up on the prowess of their own fa vorites and expressing a desire to lay small wagers that Redfern would tiot only carry off a majority of (hi 1 games, but land the pennant at the end of the sea on besides. The rivalry between the two towns had always been strong. CASTORIA The Kind You Have Always Nought has borno tho sig naturo of Chas. ji.

BISHOP WRESTLING . .6 . .6 6 G Biddy Bishop is rating up on a ranch near Salem, Or. He is unde cided where he will locate tempor arily, but it will olther be Butte or Seattle. He has pulled off fights in both places. *ue Sign of the Pour" at the Auditorium last night was greeted by a crowded house and the Jessie Snerley company s "ored another triumph. Detective plays always interest the masses and the Shirley company is particually strong in this class of productions. Two years previous Redfern had won the pennant, Brownville finish ing second in the race. Last sea son Brownville barely nosed out a victory over Redfern, the wonder ful pitching of Hafford being the important factor that brought vic tory to the Brownville team. As the players talked, Claude Hafford, the pitcher, arose from his seat and walked to the edge of the sidewalk and leaned against one of the posts that supported the broad wooilen awning which extended across tho entire length of the street side of the hotel. His hand some face was 'care free and a shock of reddish hair showed roguishly beneath his straw hat, which was tilted on the back of his head. Suddenly there was a commotion down the street, the players sprang from their chairs and Hafford ran to the middle of the thoroughfare. "Come back, Hafford," shouted Captain Davis in alarm, but Haf ford, if he heaerd, gave no heed. (To be continued tomorrow.)
