The aiappflnmnt of the Western league
' has been the career of Lincoln. At tha
. outset of the aean that team presented
' n formidable aspect and It looka even
stronger today than It did then, but the
managment not getting the benefit of Ita
1 Investment because harmony has deserted

1 easy meat for Sloug City on the latter'a
1 grounds all season. At thnes Is has really
j been disgusting the way the Oreenbackers
I have dropped game to Duck'y tribe. It
has certainly been the means of giving
Holmes more footing against Omaha.
Omaha should yet win the flag, though.
It has a small margin over the Sioux, and
has Denver. Dca Molnea and Sioux City
to finish up the season with. Denver starts
In today for four games; Dea Moines comes
then for four games and then Omaria goes
t tioux City for five. Had Omaha, played
its usually good game last Sunday against
Des Moines and Thursday and Friday
against Pueblo it might think of taking
things easy now, but the only thing before
It at present is the hardest sort of work.
Sioux City has a distinct advantage In
those wlndup games on the home grounds,
which are miniature grounds at best.
Barney Drefus probably will aell Lefty
Lelfield to some brush league. Why? Be
cause the fans of that town, through one
of the papers, have read Lefty out of the
Viuslnesa as a pitcher. This paper Invites
Mr. Clarke not to' work Lefty at home,
but if he must use him. use htm on the
road. Such piffle as this Is what empha
sizes that Inexplalnable trait of human
character most com" . n in the base ball
fan. Every fan thinks his home team
should be the pennax-t winner, forgetting
that some team must take the tall-end place
and some others fill In between. The un
reasonableness of the fan la one of the
funniest things In the world, anyway. If
the home team Is winning the fan that Is
hard to please says he won't go out to see
the game because it'a a cinch the home
team will win and there's no Interest In
seeing m one-sided game. If the home team
Is losing this fan decides he won't go out
to seo the game because it's a cinch the
home team will get beat and what's the
fun of seeing the home team lose? There
are t o many Just fans as this. They are
not res" fans, though. They give neither
their moral nor financial support to the
gtme. They sit around In their favorite
lounging place and mumble their plaints
about "the lobsters," and a lot of other
pet names. The real fan wants to see the
home team win, of course. He is the fel-
low who goes out to the park and ahowa by
his presence and his lungs that he wants
' to see It win and who, when It does lose,
takea It as a matter of courae, knowing;
that what makes and keeps alive the great
rt of all games is the very fact that the
tallender can beat the leader.
With Autrey off first base, Austin off

Omaha will have three holes extremely dif
ficult to fill. Graham will cover first and
cover it magnificently If he la fully re
covered, as he probably will be, from his

pitchers are yet to be' secured. One thing
lYeiident Rourke will keep In mind In get

PACIFIC COLLEGE ROWING
Something About the Crew on the
WASHUfOTON IS THE LEADER

tention of Eastern ports
NEW YORK. Sept. . When Hiram B.
Conibear. coach of the University of Wash
ington crewa. left this section of the country,
soon after the Intercollegiate boat race at
New London and Poughkeepete. he made
the statement that a college eight from the
Pacific coast certainly would be seen In
action here In 1906 if the stewards of the
rowing association Invited the westerners.
As there la (mall question that such an In
vitation will be forthcoming for next year'
regatta, those who follow college rowing
will have chance to watch boat from
either Washington, California or Stanford
trying ita merit against the best of the
east. The Invitation to be sent will be
directed to the Pacific Coaat Intercollegiate
Rowing association to send the winning
eight on here.
For the last two seasons Conibear' eight-
oared crewa have been vlctorioua over the
others. Through some mistaken apprehen
sion on the occasion of both victories the
Washington men regarded themselves a
entitled at once to make the trip east. They
had the idea that all that was needed waa
that they ahould forward an "entry" to the
stewards. It Is. however, necessary that
an Invitation be received. The etewards
have followed a policy of attempting to
insure themselves that a university or as
sociation once invited will continue to send
crews each sesson thereafter, regardless of
the racing success. After two seasons they
are convinced that the Pacific coast col
legians are In earnest. Furthermore, they
have received aasuranoea from westerner
who came here last June that a crew would
come each year following.
Sw Sport on the Coaat.
Rowing on the Pacific coast among the
colleges is comparatively a new thing. It 1
older at California and Stanford than at
Washington, because they began rowing In
these places In 1893. Washington did not
take It up until some years afterward. It
waa not until 190? that rowing in eight
oared shells wss commenced In any of the
coast colleges. Before that they had been
rowing In fours. California Is really the
pioneer and has done moat to support the
game steadily. When rowing waa started
In im E. M. Garnett (Harvard. '87.) acted
as cosch. ' The yesr following there were
600 members of the California Boat club
and a fine boat house. This was burned the
next year, but the Berkeley men got to
gether and put up a new house on Sausallto
The rowing Interest at Stanford, which
was started with ah attempt to send
crew to Chlcsgo for a race with other col
leges at the World'a fair, lasted only a brief
time. Senator Stanford subscribed the
money for a shell and a boat house was
built at Lagunlta. The men did not realize
what was before them. They went to work
earneatly, but soon found that shell-rowing
I not an easy thing to learn. The diffi
culties punctured their enthuslaam and they
gave up the trip. Stanford did not respond
to the urging of California to get back
Into the rowing game for many year.
California Earliest Experience.
In the meantime California was making
trip up to the north and rowing against
club In Oregon and Washington as well
aa with looal clubs in San Francisco. These
latter didn't give much practice. In 1900
California bought a four oared shell from
Cornell. Goodwin, a Yale oar coached the
crews. President Wheeler,, himself enthusi
aatloally helped out rowing ac that time
For three year thereafter Intereet waa very
keen. About that time Preeident Wheeler
waa in the east at one of the Intercollegiate
regain as on the Hudadn, and made the
statement that soon a California crew
would come east. This did not come to
pass, but Judged from later happenings It
Is not Impossible, a was thought then to
be the caee.
Rowing at Stanford owes its real start
to Prof. A. W. Smith, an old Cornell oar
It may be aeen that although the coaches
at the coast college are not Cornell men,
at least the greatest Impetus come from
the Ithaca institution. In 1903 Prof. Smith
started up affair. He gave money out of
his own pocket and a barge was bought.
Prof. Smith helped to coach the oarsmen
A freshman four was started and Profa, C.
D. Marx and W. F. Durand helped out to
the extent of Indorsing notes which enabled
the .club to make some purchase. Eventu
ally there were races with Carl torn!
The Berkeley men knew more about the
gam and won.
Washington by 1904 waa well In the row
Ing game and the crews up there were
getting much needed practice with the row
Ing club about. However, a race in 1906
wrth California and Stanford was won
by California by eight lengths. The Call
fomia crew rowed two miles In 10 minute
40 seconds, an excellent performance for
coxswan fours. The California and Stanford
crews were prevented by the earthquake
disaster from rowing In 1908, although the
men had been in training and Stanford was
showing good reeurts. Stanford owed much
to the work of "Robert Gather, an under
graduate, who ofered hla service a
coach. In the three cornered freshman race
of 1905 Stanford won by ten lenglha from
California, with Washington a quarter of
mile back. The freshman and varsity
eights both had to uae one borrowed oar,
as the last spare oar snapped aa the fresh
man crew was going to the line.
Wash lag tea I'ader Conibear.
Dan Murphy became the coach of the
Stanford crews and Hiram Conibear took
charge of Washington. California continued
to be coached by Garnew. Last year Stan
ford beat out California and then raced
with Washington, which won handily in
33 minute 38 seconds, a good performance
on lake water. Again this spring Washing'
ton waa the winner, and after that victory
the Washington coach and one of hla
oarsmen. B. C. Beck, came on to the east
to look over the field.
Apparently Washington is the most prom
Islng of the three college. Before eight
oared shell rowing was entered Into th
othtrs did bttter work. But In 19 T th
Washingtonlans got rather tie Jjoip on
th others, having their shell before th
others. Stanford did not get a boat until
verv late in the rowing season and at that
exrr!lid California. The reason wss at
leged to be that the Berkeley men had
very little place and a bad season In which
Washington has the best water on whlc!
tn train. California can do best on the
San Leandro canal, which, taken with
irt of Oakland estuary, gives a course
that is fairly amooth and workable. Slsn
ford can do the preliminary work on Lake
Lagunlta. on the campus, where the nidi'
ment may be mastered. Redwood slough

the Stanford oarsmen. Tn wasmngron

nd the lske Is seldom rough. To be sure,

In the east.
4t Barters te the Crews.
The California ea rumen have a huge eld
ferryboat as a boat hou. This, the
mador. ty bought from a railroad cm-
papy. It Is moored In the Oakland estuary.
Stanford has 'a regulation boat house, ai
as Washington. On general principles It
seems well to bank on Washington as the
hampion crew for eime seasons. They
get big men at Washington, men used to
the water and strong snd sturdy. Fur
thermore. Seattle Is very strongly bejilnd
the university, which Is growing very rsp
ldly. The Alaska-Tukon exposition next
ear will leave behind some permanent
buildings for the use of the university
that will further Its prosperity immensely.
Again. Conibear picked up a deal of use
ful Information In the course of his tr.p
here last spring. He tslked with all the
rowing coaches and observed, too. Couch
Courtney of Cornell gave him many p 'Int
ers and he went back to the west with a
stock of Information that he ought to be
ble to., apply with profit. Incidentally
Conibear believes that maybe, a crew of
his might have a chance with the eastern
ers, maybe more than a chance.
