Exciting Tennis Matches at Del Monte
Close Finishes at Sacramento
Big Pacers Coming to California
Braley and Bell, Southern Califor
nia Players, Create Surprise
by Excellent Showing.
Prwla! Dispatch to Th» Call.
DEL MONTE., Cal., Sept. B.— Whitman
and Wright are the winners of the Pacific
Coast all-comers' doubles tournament,
i and as such will play the Hardy brothers
to-morrow afternoon for the champion
ship of the Pacific Coast. ■*"•
The Easterners engaged in two matches
to-day, in the morning: with .Braley and
Bell, champions of Southern California,
and in the afternoon with the Whitney
freres, winning both without much exten
sion or effort, although Braley and Bell
gave tin- Easterners the hardest battle
of the tournament. The first-class dou
bles teams of California are no longer
summed up in the names of Hardy and
Whitney; Braley and Bell Is the latest
addition, and it is a strong one.
Wherever you go on the Del Monte
grounds you strike some sort of a tennis
champion, even if it is of a village school.
There never was such a collection of
racket celebrities before. The day after
to-morrow it will be all over, and these
would-be champions will have lost the
denominations which carried them to Del
Monte to light with the men of the East.
The surprise of the day was the splen
did showing that Braley and Bell made.
This team came all the way from L,os
Angeles to wear out rubber soles on hard
asphalt in a vain light against Whitman
and Wright, but their work was easily
the best of the tournament. It was cer
tainly of a superior order when compared
with the playing of the doubles champions
of America, Ward and Davis. The first
sel played was won easily by the southern
team. Whitman and Wright secured but
The three sets following were won by
Whitman and Wright. 6—3. 6—l, G— 4. The
last set was not an easy one for them,
every point being contested and hard
fought. '- V
In the afternoon the largest crowd that
has yet gathered at the tournament filled
the stands and awaited the coining of the
four who were to play off the finals.
Whitman and Wright were first on the
scene of the racket struggle. George
Whitney was an Immediate follower, but
"Brother Bob" was late by some ten
minutes. The "clouting" he has received
during the last few days has left him
spiritless and he now thinks of taking
up golf or possibly croquet.
The first match of this contest was won
by Whitney and Whitney. "Brother Bob"
smiled and George pattered to the other
side of the net, happier than he has been
In four da vs. With a swish and bang
the terribles began their "clouting" again
and the Whitney treres were triturated
on the asphalt. Robert Whitney, with a
diabolic inspiration, thought it wise to
drive everything that came within his
rise. He wanted to be a "clouter." but
all that was accomplished by his swish
banging was a rent or two in the net and
removed sections of w<ie fence. Robert
X Whitney is now known as "Clouter 1-4
Socond." George Whitney played a steady
game, the best he has done since .the be
ginning of the tournament.
In the second set the Whitney? started
out well, winning the first two games.
The third game was taken by Whitman
and Wright, and they tied the score at
the end of the sixth game. Four gam'-s
were won by the local men in this set.
"Clouter the Second" had sided and
was feeling the ball. The third sot was
easy labor for the Easterners, the Whit
■ .'•-.> taking but a single game to con
sole them li v.< ■ contemplation of the
many ''clouts" received at the hands of
the visitors. The tournament ended with
a quadruplicate handshake Just as Pro
fessor Joseph Dailey announced the win
The ladies' championship singles tour

and Miss Button of Southern California.

To-morrow afternoon the Hardys will

many tennis omniscients at Del Monte
who "are willing to wager cigarettes that
it will be a fizzle match.

The Sunny Slope stake for two-year-old

by Thorpe. A field of but /five young

FANS LOOK FOR
GREAT BALL IN
Gilt Edoes and San Franciscos to
Local Nine Vow to Shake Off the
Hoodco Which Hoy rs Over
With seven straight defeats charged up
against them the ball tossers of the home
club will enter the coming series with a
firm resolve to shake off the hoodoo. The
team has undoubtedly encountered much
hard luck, but Manager Harris concedes
that superior playing was responsible for
a few of the Sacramento victories, and in
deference to the demands of the fans he
has endeavored to strengthen his aggre
gation. Inability to connect with the ball
has been largely responsible for the com
paratively poor showing of the team and
Harris has sought to remedy that defect,
and he surely has made an improvement
in substituting Brockhoff for O'Neil and
Courtney for Muller.
Two good hitters having taken the
places of two weak ones the effect ought
to be felt in the coming series. Besides
that, there has been a complete reorgan
ization of the team and Captain Sullivan
expects to get better team work out of
the men. The series will no doubt attract
another large crowd of "fans" and en
thusiasts, for it is now well known that
when Sacramento and San Francisco
meet on the diamond the contests are
bound to be productive of exciting epi
sodes and close scores. The Sacramento
aggregation has a good lead, but if the
Friscoes win a majority of the series they
will be within easy winning distance. The
line-up for to-day's game follows:
Sacramento. Positions. San Francisco.

In the opening- rounds Burns was tho
aggressor, and in the fourth round Zcig

round Zeigler looked worried and both
men seemed tired. Science was cast to
the wind completely and they simply
slugged each other. In the seventh both
fell in a clinch. Burns after hitting Zeig
ler rather low in the body, extended his
right hand as if to apologize, but Zeig
ler merely hit his opponent on the law.
This er raged Burns and in a wild dash
he threw Zeigler heavily on the ropes.
Burns then sent his left to the jaw arm
Zeigler fell through the ropes into the
arms ot his Beconds, who shoved him

bell. In the eighth Zeigler received a l"t
