Michael Angelo Fisher's squad of
diamond artists will arrive In Los An
geles this morning and will Immediately
hie out to Chutes park to prepare for
the afternoon's combat with the Ser
aphs. It will not be the terrible Ben
gal squad that created such havoc last
year, the "champs" having been
thoroughly tamed both in body and
mind by their unfortunate experience
with the Athenian host.
The Tacoma manager, however, ex
presses himself as confident that when
the pennant possessors return to San
Francisco for their first Interview with
Hank Harris' men that his sphere
chasers will occupy a distinctly more
satisfying notch In. the percentage
column. Tacoma played a series of five
games with Oakland on the Athenians'
diamond and when hostilities ended
Sunday the Tigers had captured two
and lost the remainder to the enemy.
Six Game Series
Los Angeles and Tacoma will play
a six-game series on the Chutes park
diamond and the results of the blngle
fests mean much to both contingents
of ball basters. With Seattle out of
the reckoning, Tacoma is at the bot
tom of the heap, a position that is
hardly conducive to the dignity and
peace of mind of a team that walked
away with the pennant last year.
Tacoma's pennant winning infield
will all be in action this afternoon.
Nordyke, the sticking first baseman
that did such consistent work last sea
son, will again appear on the initial
corner for the Flsherltes and Casey will
guard the territory Immediately contig
uous to the second patch. On the
third corner Tommy Sheehan will han
dle the work of the difficult sack.
Tommy emulated Ollle Twist In hold
ing out for "more" when called upon
to affix his signature to a document
confining his services to the Tacoma
baseball club for another season, but
Fisher was determined not to permit
the little second baseman to seek other
fields and pastures new and' the mo
mentous question was finally "com
promised" to the satisfaction of the
Tacoma fans. So Tommy will be there
Charlie Graham will stop the twist
ers for Tacoma today. Graham is
again the leader of the northerners, his
all-around ball playing ability making
him a valuable aßset of the Tacoma
Eagan at Short
Truck Eagan, the man with the four
base stick, is doing the short-stop
turn for Tacoma again this year.
Eagan fractured an arm while trying
to nip the second bag in a game with
the Seraphs during the latter part of
the seaßon of 1904 and was unable to
wear the mlt during the deciding sprint
for the bunting. That the big Tacoma
shortstop still has his optic on the
ball Is proven by the fact that he
lifted out a homer and a bunch of base
hits during the series with Oakland.
Doyle. McLaughlin and Lynch will
rare for the Tacoma outer gardens and
form a trio hard to beat when it comes
to connecting with the lifts that leave
the diamond behind.
Bobby Keefe or Fitzgerald will toss
over the slants for the men of Fisher
this afternoon. Ovle Overall will be
missed from the Tiger twirling staff,
hut the loss of the big collegian should
militate but little against the chances
of Tacoma to repeat their performance
of last season. But things have
changed since then and the supporters
of Tacoma may he destined to experi
ence bitter disappointment when the
day of reckoning arrives. It looks so,
Roy Toren or "Bones" Baum will do
the slab work for the Seraphs this af
ternoon. Both of the twlrlers pitched
one of the two losing games against
Portland and one of them will be given
the desired opportunity of mowing
down the terrible Tiger swatsmen to
Perrlne !s billed to manipulate the
Indicator. The game will be called
promptly at 2:30.
Queer Burial Custom
A very curious old custom is associat
ed with interments In the cemetery of
Labruck, Connemara, Ireland. A box
of pipes — short clays— ls brought with
the coffin, and a pipe. with tobacco is
rerved out to each mourner. The pipes
are smoked in silence after the earth
has been filled in and a mound of
stones raised above the grass; the
ashes are solemnly knocked out on the
top and the pipes broken or left behind.
The origin of this custom is unknown,
but it is thought to be emblematic of
'ashes to ashes, dust to dust." Knipty
black bottles are also to be found
scattered about the site.
MANAGER FISHER AND RIGHT FIELDER DOYLE OF TACOMA
BIG THINGS DUE
IN AUTO RACING
NEW FIVE-MILE TRACK TO BE
Year 1906 Should Be Long Remem
bered Among Speed Merchants
The year 1906 should be the banner
one of automobile racing in the United
States. Before the Ormond-Daytona
races next year It is expected that all
of the speed owners of surplus thous
ands now in the auto racing game will
have either disposed of the cars they
own and which proved more or less
disappointing last month on the Flori
da beach course, or will have made
extensive alterations which will result
in greater speed.
It is now generally admitted that the
men in control of this year's racing at
Ormond and Daytona were not ex
perts. That the handling of races of
such importance was beyond them is
conceded by all who became discour
aged at the delays which occurred
time and again.
The feeling of dissatisfaction which
manifested Itself early, owing to the
manner in which the races were han
dled, or, rather, were not handled, re
sulted In the organization of a new
association to control racing in Florida
In future. This association must be
recognized by the American Automo
bile association before its races will be
sanctioned, but with men like H. M.
Flagler back of It, this recognition
should not be long in forthcoming.
The new association has placed the
management of Its races in the hands
of W. J. Morgan, familiarly known as
"Senator," whose long experience with
the bicycle and automobile racing game
has given him the necessary education
to run races on a business basis and
with general satisfaction.
In addition to running the 1906 races
in Florida, "Senator" Morgan will be
general manager of the new five-mile
track to be constructed next year near
Earnegat bay, twelve miles south of
Lakewood, N. J.
This track, if It comes up to the hope
of the promoters, should be the fastest
in the world. It is proposed to build it
of approximately triangular form, 120
feet wide, with a mile straightaway.
where ' the flyers can go after mile
Opposite the mile stretch a grand
stand with capacity for 10,000 will be
built. On the bay a clubhouse will be
erected, and a landing provided where
boats drawing not more than eight
feet of water can land passengers.
CORBETT MAKES POOR
SHOWING AGAINST ERNE
Former Champion Unable to Win
From a Fourth
By Amcclated Freaa,
PHILADELPHIA. April 3.— Young
Corbett of Denver and Young Erne of
this city sparred six rounden at the
West Washington Sporting club to
night. Corbett was fat and fought
wildly, frequently misjudging his dis
tance, and many of his blows landed
on the hack of his opponent's hfad.
Erne, while active, was timid, and
much of the time was wasted in
clinches and hugging.
In the third round Erne was cut over
the eye and In the sixth Corbett's
mouth was bleeding. In the same
round Corbett rushed Erne through
the ropi'H. Erne landed the greater
number of blows. He Jabbed Corbett
frequently and ran away from the
swings of his opponent. Corbett tried
to stop Erne repeatedly and several
times countered on Erne's jaw, but his
blows lacked strength. Under the law
no decision can be given in this city,
but the spectators appeared to be of
the oplnon.that the tight was v draw.

HIGH SCHOOL AND
CAPTURE BASKETBALL GAMES.
AT U. S. C. GYM
Preparatory School Five Triumph Over
St. Vincent's Men, and Whittier
Colllegians Defeat Santa
The two basketball games played at
the University of Southern California
gymnasium last evening to decide the
team to play In the finals for the
championship of the Southern Califor
nia league resulted in victory for the
Los Angeles high school over the team
from St. Vincent's college and the de
feat of the Santa Monica Kellance
squad at the hands of the Bpeedy little
players from Whittier college. The
flrml score In the High School-St. Vin
cent's game was 25 to 13 and In the
Whittler-Keliance bout 30 to 12.
The high school and St. Vincent's
played the first game and the lovers
of the sport witnessed one of the snap
piest games played in the south for
several weeks. The plucky little high
school lads playod rings around their
heavy college opponents and outplayed
them In tenm work so decisively that
the Catholic students were at no time
in the lead. Samples, St. Vincent's
ppeedy forward, was held down with
comparative ease by Johnson. Wllhoit
and Irvine played the major part of
the game for the orange and white
and both men did good work. i
Captained by Hussey, tho high school
team has developed into one of thR
fastest five In Southern California and
tttund well In the way of taking thu
t hmnplonshlp of the loague.
The result of last night's games put 3
SI. Vincent's out of the running for
first place and will leave Los Angeles
high school and Whlttler college tied
for the championship.
The tie will probably he played off
the latter part of this month.

IS NOT PLEASANT
BUTT FOR BULLYING JEERS OF
Peculiar Fascination In the Official's
Work — Men Anxious for the
_ Position, With All of Its
The avprasre citizen finds It hard to
understand how anything but dire ne
cessity can drive a itinn to be an um
pire. Of course, rather thnn starve to
death almost anyone would consent to
become a butt for Uie bullying Jeers
and Insinuations of the bleacheritrs, a'
target for pop bottles and the common
enemy of ball players.
Hut it Isn't the prospect of starvation
that flll« the timplrlcal ranks, for an
umpire must be a man who has brains
enough to get along at some other kin 1
of a Job, jf he chooses. Why he doesn't
choose another more humble, but cer
tainly less terrifying, branch of labor
Is the mystery. There must be a pe
culiar fascination about setting one's
self up In opposition to the world.
League presidents are- deluged with
applications from would-be judges of
So far as quantity goes the supply
Is greater than tho demand. As for
the quality, that is another story. The
fact rem,alns that there arc plenty of
good men who seem to prefer to take
their lives in their hands and run the
risk of buttle, murder and sudden death
on the ball field rather than enter
some quieter and safer employment.
One big reason Is that a good um
pire ma^kes fair money, enough to keep
him comfortably through the winter.
Even In the class A and B minor
leagues the judges of play draw from
$200 to $300 a month, besides their trav
eling expenses. That helps a good
Then there are lots of men who en
joy the position of authority, even if
it is accompanied by tho frequent an
tagonism of players and fans. They
look upon their work as honorable, and
a healthy love of the game is another
inducement to keep at it.
Umpires, as a rule, look forward to
the opening of the season as' eagerly
as the players.
Above all things, an umpire must ba
strictly on the level. One false move
and it is all over with him. It speaks
well for the diameter of. the men In
the business that an attempt to fix the
umpire is rarely thought of — never In
the bigger leagues.
A man makes a big mistake in being
what is known as a home umpire; that
is, in making a practice of giving the
home team the best of the close deci
sions. Ho may curry temporary fa
vor with the local fans, but they soon
learn to despise him. As for the play
ers, they have nothing but contempt
for such a man. On the field they try
their best to get him to give decisions
In their favor, but at heart they de
spise him if he favors them unfairly
as much as they hate him If he gives
them the worst of it.

Size of an Atom
How large is an atom? "Perhaps the
simplest, though the most exact, way
of arriving at a rough estimate of tho
size of atoms Is by measuring the
thickness of a soap bubble film, where
it is as thin as possible, just before It
bursts," says a writer. "Such a film,
If composed of atoms, must be some
thing like a pebble wall. Now, a peb
ble wall would not stand If it were not
several pebbles thick, and .if we had
reason to suppose that it was about a
dozen pebbles thick we could easily
make an estimate of the size of the
pebble by measuring the thickness of
"That is the case with the thinnest
region of a soap Him. It is found to
have a very definite and uniform thick
ness. It Is the thinnest thing known,
and by refined optical means its thick
ness can be accurately measured. It
must contain not less than something
like a dozen atoms In Its thickness, and
yet it is only about the twenty
mlllioneth of an inch In thickness by
direct measurement. So that the diam
eter of an atom comes out between
one two-hundred-mlllloneth and one
three-hundred mllltoneth of an Inch.
In other words, from about 200,000,000
to 300,000,000 of atoms can lie edge to
edge in a linear inch.— Science.

$2000 FOR DOGS OUTFIT
Shameful Extravagance of Women

Cleveland Moffett In his series "The

some startling exposures of the manner
in which our idle rich waste their
money. He quite caps the climax, how
ever, with the following Information
regarding the willful waste on the pet

"There are pet dogs in New York," I

"On clothes for their poodles?"

coats, dusters, sweaters, coats lined
with ermine at $200 each, automobile
coats with hoods and goggles, and each
coat fitted with a pocket for the
poodte's handkerchief of fine linen cr
"I never heard of such a thing."
"It is absolutely true. Furthermore,
these women buy for their pet dogs
boots of different colored leather to
match the coats, house boots, street
boots, etc., that lace up nearly, to the
knee and cost from $5 to $8 a pair. They
buy half a dozen pairs at a time. And
they buy collars, set with rubles, pearls
or diamonds at several hundred dollars
each. A man who makes a specialty of
such collars told me of a woman who
imported from Paris a complete' outfit
for her poodle costing $2000. And ona
lady had a house built for her dog, the
exact model of a Queen Anne cottage,
with rooms papered and carpeted' and
the windows hung with lace curtains.
