Chester Hoff Responsible for
Salt Lake's Second Victory
of Series Score
Reads 5 to 1.
Salt Lake, Oct. 20. Chester Hoff
girded up his bolt to the fifth holo
yesterday and went out to the so
called hill at Majostic park upon
which pitchers are wont to puzzle and
paw. Tho fact that he went out to
the hill Is not tho most Important opl
sode to record, however, but the re
sult of his goings and comings are
indeed palatable to peruse. Chester's
toll on the mound, supplemented and
reinforced by the activities of his
teammates, resulted In Salt Lake's
second victory of the series, the score
reading 5 to 1 with the Utes on the
Not the least significant result of
the joust is the fact that the Utes
moved Into fourth place In the club
The whole soiree was enjoyable.
Hoff's performances, while they woro
relished thoroughly by tho fans, wore
not the entire pith and point of the
entertainment. Skipper Bernhard had
certain ones of his help placed In new
positions. Orr occupied the center
garden In Tommy Quinlan's Job. Bill
seemed to take to the new place like
a kid rejoices over a holiday, and
flitted hither and thither and yon
In pursuit of tho fly balls which stray
ed to his vicinity. In tho eighth he
robbed Jerry Downs of a three-bagger
by nipping the ball off the fence ad
Joining the Salt Lake clubhouse. He
also blighted tho hopes of Jones In
the ninth, when the latter poled out
one to the signs In left center. Buddy
Ryan was also ambitious in the left
pasture, mowing down what would
have been a two-base hit from Downs'
sap stick in the fourth.
Spider Stars for Seal3,
Vis a vis to Hoff in tho Seal
trenches was Spider Baum, or, that is
Spider was in the Seal trenches dur
ing a part of the session. In the
fourth inning he got himself entan
gled in the meshes of a net of his own
construction, when he suffered from a
sudden attack of chronic generosity
and doled out free transportation to
three JJtes, which eventually fattened
the latter's score to tho extent of four
runs. Wolverton could not see the
Idea of Spider's liberality, however,
and invited him of Samaritan propen
sities to retire to the warmth of the,
Brown Replaces Baum.
Curly Brown was then summoned
to take up his abode on the knoll for
the Seals, and "did noble," finishing
Spider's duties by holding the Utes
hitless during the remaining portion
of the matinee. Curly's curls feinted
and twirled about the bats of the

TIGERS SHOT OUT
BY STURDY OAKS
Vernonites Make Things
Merry For Oakland But Fail
to Reach Home Plate.
San Ftanciaco, Oct. 19. As has
been voiced before It is a long an
gle worm which has no turn. The
Oaks, trampled In the muck ever so
long, turned to with a vengeance to
day and trimmed the Hampats in an
eleven-Inning session by the close
count of 1 to 0. Barring the second
frame when Sleeping William Burns
loaded the bags with two out, the
Oak heavlst was In rare old form.
The Vernonites were not dangerous
again until the seventh when they
swarmed all over the bags again, but
the necessary click was absent. Thus
It went until the eleventh canto.
Things looked squally for the Oaks
in that frame, but again the neces
sary hit was not at home.
Decannlere opened the Barao Inning
with a walk for MIddleton, but Roxey
was forced at second by Murphy.
Lane rapped to right and when Ken
worthy was hit, tho bags were bulg
ing. The climax was not long In com
ing. Cunningham hit over second,
scoring Murphy with the only tally
of the set-to.

New York, Oct. 19. The National
league must be strengthened In the
opinion of John K, Tener, Its presi
dent. Mr. Tener says he believes tho
twenty-one player limit has worked
against the league in world's series
games and that the limit will bo in
creased next year.
There Is no use in the National
league making any excuses or giving
any alibis," said Mr. Tener. We have
played poor ball, very poor ball, In
the last few aeries. Our pitchers held
up, but that was all. I appreciate that
something must be done. In my an
nual messago to the club presidents
I have called attention to the fact
that the National league does not get
Its prestige in the executive office,
but on tho ball field.
"No one can actually tell whether
the twenty-one-player limit has in
jured us in competition with the
American league. This limit in a deli
cate matter, which the men with the
money invested must settle for them
selves. Personally, I believe It has
worked against the National league
and I think by next season the player
limit in our league will be increased."
It was reported today that Presi
dent Tener, Harry Hempstead, the
president of the New York National
league club, and John J. McGraw,
the club's manager, will meet here
today or tomorrow to talk over Mc

pended pending an investigation.
The convicts who are at liberty are
Marquis Curtis, Thomas Hyland, Wil
liam Tammany, Frank Lutz, William

and Hyland were serving life terms.
The truck, which was supposed to
be used exclusively inside the prison
walls, was driven by a convict who
wore the uniform of a guard. Anoth
