WHAT THE SPOKANE INDIANS NEED MOST IS G-I-N-G-E-R; ESPECIALLY THE INFIELD Oil TO MEET TOMMY KELLY H S. I. K. C. SMOKER TONIGHT Rev. W. J. Hlndley, pastor of tho Westminster Congregational church, will he one of the timers at the S. A. A. C. smoker tonight. The reverend is declared to he one of the most enthusiastic athletic fans lately discovered. One of the latest in the boxing and wrestling meet that will he pulled off tonight is Danny GUIIn of Vancouver, who will meet Tommy Kelly in the 126 pound TIP WRIGHT'* COL UMN BY TIP WRIGHT. There linsn't boon much said about the moving pictures of the Jeffries-Johnson fight lately, i wonder why? Has the picture trust clinched the privilege or have the independent stolen it march on them? Both trust and inde pendents were tn Iking business with Sain Merger not long ago in Chicago, but nothing definite has been made public. When Jeffries and Johnson signed articles they agreed to split tho receipts of the pictures three ways. Bach lighter was to gel. one-third of the profits and the promoters were to have the oilier third. It was stipulated in the agree ment that the fighters would con trol the pictures. Apparently the men who make the pictures were not. taken into consideration. It was the clause giving them control of tin- pictures that cauaed the fighters to accept Itickard and Cleason's hid. .Now there isn't r chance In the world for the fighters to control. The trust has put in a flat bid for the pictures and the Independents have made an offer based upon percentage, which in reality will bring more money to the lighters and promoters than the offer of the trust. Hut both Independents and trust will insist upon absolute control. There's a barrel of money in the pictures. Xo one can estimate with a certainty their ultimate value, hut they ought to be good for more thai) a year, with it conic bach a couple of years later. They wtll he worth ten limes anj pic tures ever mtide. There has been much said to the effect llull Jeffries and Johnson will fight 10 or 12 rounds for the benefit of the picture machines be fore trying to put across a knock out. Qui B statement credited to Jeffries diipels this. Jeffries is reported to have said: "I'll whip Johnson in three rounds if I citn. I don't Intend to waste any time fooling around, The quicker I dispose of him the more money there Is In It for me Individually. A quick victory means big money on the road, and 1 can make $100,000 In a few weeks." Good talk, Jeff. The public wants lo see a sharp, decisive light, und the quicker you or your opponent wins the better we will like It. Nothing will so quickly dispose of this talk about a frame up than a hurry up finish and stamp out this lalk about the fighting game be ing rotten to the core.

TOMMY MURRAY'S WIT GAVE VANCOUVER FUN A funny incident happened last year at Vancouver, B, c. when the Portland Northwest ern league team was playing one of its series there. The members of the Portland team occupied ringside seats at a boxing smoker on n'ghts with the exception of Tommy Mur ray, who sat in the bleachers. Pearl Casey was laid up at the time of the game with his had knee, and little Phil Coonej was acting captain. When two of the principals were introduced it developed that one of their names was Casey. The other chap was a colored fighter by the name of of Stmt. When the battle had progress* d a few rounds iind the colored chap was knocking the block off Casey, the "white man," Tommy Murray, who was way up in the bleachers, let fly a remark which brought down the house. Tom hollered to Cooney: "Put Jimmy Adams in to hit for Casey." This was Hie event of the evening, and Adams nearly • killed Murray when he saw him again. Casey, Adams and Cooney were the targets for some awful joshing the rest of the week. The Reliable Outfitting Co. s Bankrupt Stock REMOVED TO 109-111 WASHINGTON ST.

(12 innings.) o.toj,iq S»uo( 1 usbm_ i] pun 'asnastp SPORT SFECE We WILL win today. Hob Hrown opened a new can of "pep" yesterday and so enthused the fans that half the time they were helping him jolly the visiting team. It's about time for the Indians' medicine man to get busy with his spice. •* * - T T Some of those fellows who knocked "Bobby" James last year, when he was an Indian, felt kind o" squeamish over his fine head work yesterday in the Beaver team. But, you know, there is nothing really material about one's regrets. "What the heck have those blue guys got them rats on their arms for?" a verdant fan. sitting right bsck of the press box, earnestly queried of a cityite beside him The "rube" had just piped the beaver outline on the sleeves of the visiting team's uniforms. Five minutes later that city fan, thinking he had an easy one. be gan to bone the "rube" to go him a bet on the next inning. The "rube" took him up all o.k. and stung the wise one for a half. It was Just as hard to tell about what was coming in the game as it was to evade deception as to some apparently green ones in the crowd. It was some chilly yesterday, so both Jensen and Killilay put some thing on the pellet. Besides that, it was ladies' day. The* pill got lost under Lewis" protecter in the fourth. It was a foul tip off W odd's bat and the fans moaned, "O C T." Seriously, too. Ought to have seen Lewis rub his wisli bone. ****** COW WANTED—By the Indians. A goat will not be accepted, unless it is the Beavers' goat. Don't miss the story about the cow fortune teller. HutThellellofltlsThe'lndlansare Not PlayingCood Hall. THE SPOKANE PRESS BE A VERS HA YE INDIANS GREA TL V OUTGENERALED All the way through the game • yesterday the Beavers had the tl home team outgeneraled. Spo kane's outfield played a good game, but the Beavers were too. often successful in putting hits through the infield. Jensen pitched a tight game of ball for the Beavers and, with his well known change of pace and his curves breaking at their best, the Indian batsmen were held practically powerless up till the sixth inning. Kippert succeeded in rapping out a Texas leaguer back of second for two sacks after two were down in the first and Weed got a base on balls, but Nordyke fanned, retiring the side. Again, in the second inn ing, Ostdlek managed to pick out a clean two bagger after two were out, but he died at third/ trying to stretch the double into just one more sack. In the next two inn ings not a man in the home team got so far as first base. A base on balls and Scharn weber's error in the fifth allowed Flood and Weed to populate first and second for a brief period, but Jensen was not long in securing the death sentence of Killilay and Davis. It was Scharnweber's error in the After getting a base on balls, Adams went to second so fast he made the Twentieth Century Lim ited look like a sprinkling cart. sixth inning that opened the way for Spokane's two scores, for the instant Cartwright was given a life on his bobble, Jensen began to-Joosen and three hits and an in , out did the rest of it. That ' was Spokane'B last chance. Jen sen was tight as a miser. Kippert The Beavers had Killilay in a hole In the seventh Inning, but he managed to work himself out un aided. was the only man who located him alter that and he was doubled out at second when Weed hit to Scharnweber. "Off and on" was the sort of ball Killilay pitched. In the first inn ing he had the Beavers going out in one, two, three order, but in the second, an error by Granville at shortstop and one hit and a base on balls gave the visitors another run. Killilay held down tight In the third, but two bits and a neat sacrifice by Bobby James in the fourth netted the Beavers still an other run. They followed suit in the fifth, and the same in the IT'S UP TO THE INDIANS TO GET A NEW COW Talk about your luck! Maybe the Indians need an official mascot. Now, last year a certain old brindle cow resided in the vicinity of Recreation park, by which both fans and Indians would swear as to their luck from day to day. On going to the ball grounds, should this bovine be seen standing and industriously switching flies, it was a sure sign, according to the superstitious beliefs of players and fans, that the home team was going to win. On the contrary, should the traditional quadruped be lying down and lazily munching her cud, when the home team passed, it was a "cinch" that the Indians were slated for a drubbing. Strange as it may seem, this kind of "dope" seldom failed. The habit of watching for that old cow's mute forecast grew so strong on many of the fans that they refused to put their money on the home team whenever the cow was seen lying down while the crowded cars were passing on the way to the game. This year, Madame Sukey Is gone. Where? None of the fans have so far learned. She disappeared sometime during the win ter. Having already grown old by the end of last baseball sea son, maybe more than one of the Spokane fans, who, by her guidance, placed their bets, have long since chewed, hammered and "cussed" at her tough old steaks. Guess It's up to the Indians and fans to buy a cow of their own, for, with existing conditions, there is no way of telling what is going to happen five minutes ahead of time.

Killilay would allow them to get a man on first and the see ond man up generally sacrificed. 1 They played the sacrifice racket to a finish. Jack Killilay showed his real prowess as a twirler in the sev jenth, eighth and ninth innings, lie j pitched himself out of a bad hole ;in the seventh. The inning was a remarkable one. Jensen opened it with a smashing three bagger to the right center field. Adams, j next up, drew a base on balls, then ; beat it for second so fast that he ! made a Twentieth Century Un ited look like a sprinkling cart. I That was the last of the Heavers' j fun. The next three of their men I who went to the plate couldn't even ' raise the dust outside of the in- I field and one of them struck out. I Only three Beavers went to bat |in either of the next two innings. 'Had Killilay pitched ball through out the game as he did for the re . mainder of the game after he had ! second and third populated in the 'seventh, there could scarcely have , been anything to it. Two runs for the home team would have been sufficient. Granville played a pretty fair Igame at short and Cartwrlght showed up well at second.

HIS CROUCH AND GROUCH SNAPPED TOGETHER JEFF S CROUCH AS IT ISN'T. 1 BEN LOMOND, Cal., April 29.—"Now the crouch, Jeff," said the pic ture man, very humbly. Jeff had been posing in various other positions and the posing business was getting very wearisome. He had a good mind to balk and walk away. He didn't any so— Jeff is a pretty good natured big fellow after all, when you get down to rock bottom —but that's what he was thinking about, all right, all right. There was a suspicion of his famous grouch as he fell Into a pose for a picture of his famous crouch. The crouch wasn't altogether his famous one (you remember Jeff's left, in the crouch is straight out, like a battering ram), but the picture man snapped, before the grouch should get bigger. Here it is, composite picture, crouch and grouch. Tpls coupon is good for |10 if pre sented before May 10 as first pay ment on tuition at Standard Com mercial College, Spokane.
