Fans, Players and Umpire in Riot at Oakland Ball Game
and Fists Fly Indicator Man Sticks to His Decision
Former Giant Mertes Slugged by Smith and
Then Ordered From the Field
The baseball game at the Oakland State league grounds yesterday, when
Stockton and Oakland clashed in the opening game of the series, resulted' in
a riot in which the players of both teams and the fans participated. The
assault was mainly directed against Pete Smith, the umpire, and for a time
it looked as if one of the bloodiest riots that ever took part on a ball field
was about to result. However, cool heads and some of the officials of the
, league played a prominent part . in suppressing the riot.
The Stockton players were armed with bats, ready to begin their assault,
and the women spectators in the grandstand turned their heads away, ex
pecting momentarily that some one would be felled from a blow of a batl
Umpire Smith, who happened to be a San Francisco police officer, found it
necessary to draw his "billy" to protect himself from the attack of the
Stockton players. That Smith possessed the to make>a successful umpire
•was shown by the courageous manner in which he stood up before the en
raged Stockton players and held them
at bay. though the odds were greatly
Though the real fire-works occurred
In the second inning, the match was
really applied in the first inning, when
Sandow Mertes, formerly of the New
York Giants and now playing short
stop for Stockton, clashed with Umpire
Smith over»a decision. Mertes was at
the bat and Smith called a strike on
the player, who argued the merits of
the decision with the indicator man.
MerteF used his feet mostly to argue j
thp point and he kept stepping on j
Smith's feet with his spikes. He went i
too far however, as Smith measured
his man with a full right swijig to the
jaw which sent the Sandow reeling
"ba<~ k. »..V "
Following the blow he ordered
Mertes out of the game.
ORDERED OFF THE FIELD
The ire of the Stocktonians was
really aroused by this time and they
had Vight in their eyes. They never
lost an opportunity to heap abuse on
the umpire, and Mertes sat on the
bench with Captain Danny Shay, who
was in uniform, hurling remarks. The
nagging continued and Smith ordered
Mertes off the field. At this point the
players swarmed around Smith.
Catcher Frambes took the initiative
with a bat and many other members
of the team followed suit. :
A special policeman was called to (
suppress the belligerent players, but
attempts to quiet them went for
naught. There were fists flying in
every direction. One or two Oakland
players had been attacked and the fans
from the bleachers swarmed into the
field and mixed up In the affair. Many
persons left the grounds in fear and
it was the most exciting moment that
had been seen on a ball field in many
a day. ,
The belligerent players were over
powered by others, of cooler heads,
and order was restored. The game
was resumed after Catcher Frambes
and Mertes had been ordered from the
field. ' •
THEIR SECOXD OFFEXSE
This was the second disturbance the
Stockton players had caused on the
tirove street grounds. In their pre
vious series against Oakland across
the bay. Shay and his men pursued
hoodlum tactics and tried to bulldoze
Umpire Jack O'Connell, who was
forced to give the game to Oakland in
the opening inning by default. t?hay
argued about a decision and he was
reinforced by his men.
At the conclusion of the game.
Mertes and Frambes waited outside
the grounds for Umpire Smith and
warned him that if he was at the
grounds today, he would take desper
ate chances of being nurt.
Tne warning did not affect the gritty
The contest was one of the poorest
exhibitions played in some lime on the
outlaw field as it was one sided all the
way. • • -'-";b
Oakland seem«d to go Into the game
with determination, after the misbe
havior of the up country players, and
there was never a doubt in regard to
the results. ' The Millers experienced
one of the worst beatings they have
known this season.
Loucks was on the firing line for
the Millers, but he was touched up for
(seventeen binglen by Nealon's men. In
the opening frame they touched him
up for three hits and they kept making
runs in nearly ev«ry other inning.
Doc Moskiman took up the heavy
work for Oakland and the Doc was
working in • fine shape. He had the
Slough City performers blanked until
the ninth Inning when they secured
three hits off Moskiman and staved off
a shutout. The score:

ALIKE TO MR.
Oakland Pitcher Deals South
erners a Shutout in First
Game of the Series
The oracles of , the _ diamond have
always held that "a southpaw pitcher
at his best holds the Indian sign over
the heads of that Los Angeles team any
time he starts. We have seen instances
of this in the past, but it was never
more' clearly brought put. than yester
day afternoon on the Oakland \u25a0 field.
Tonnesen whisked the southern slug
gers away with such seeming ease that
everybody marveled. Oakland won, 1
to 0, by slipping in with a lonesome
tally in the opening inning. It was the
first game of the series and, naturally,
it counted a lot for the cellar brigade.
Tonnesen's work was the show. He
hurled everything that a pitcher ever
had, and the farther . the game pro
gressed the better he was. At the
same time, he did not have many shades
on Koestner and , the chances are that
we -would have seen another 24 inning
history making struggle but for. the
tally which Oakland managed to rail
road through ere \ the game was five
minutes old. This* was a Jucky one,
though it was earned.- »
Tonnesen has pitched many- a good
game since he joined the Oakland club
this season, but never a one like yes
terday's. He twisted 'era up around
the ' necks of the opposing batsmen
and he wound 'em around their ankles.
The shoots were all the same. The
southern swatters, went for any of
them.. Lone hits in the third, seventh,
eighth and ninth spasms tell the tal«
of what. the proud and haughty Angels
did with the club. \ - :
That dean of leaders and wiseacre of
the field. Cap Dillon, tossed the game
to the Oaks in the: first inning. ? After
it was all over everybody on the lot
saw where lie had * made a mistake.
Murphy opened the round with ' a
healthy wallop to' right that Was good
for two sacks.' Carroll - laid down a
neat sacrifice and' Duffey Lewis pro
duced the bird that caused the over
throw of the southerners. It trickled
down, the first base line • and Dillon
only scoffed at it, feeling certain that
the ball would roll foul. .It rolled fair,
bounced, over the bag. Murphy tore
home and the game was. won.
The Angels played a . grand . gdme ; In
the field, and had they been against
a pitcher, whom they could hit the ex
•hibition would have been a spirited
one on their part. Anybody who fig
ures that the southern team will not
give^ the Seals a run next \u25a0' week- 1b
figuring the wrong sort' of baseball
stuff. . Los Angeles is still there and
as dangerous as of old.
The chances are. that yesterday's vic
tory will put some life and ginger
into the: Oaks. With Nelson, another
southpaw, and. the speedy. Wlggs still
in reserve, ; the \u25a0; Angels will : be forced
to fight every inch of the way in order
to get by on the next six games. The

ERNE IS WILLING
BUT LACKS AN
North End Match Makers Prob
ably, Will Decide Upon Lew
WILLIAM J. SLATTERY
Young Erne, the ;Philadelphia*light
weight, is still seeking a man to meet
him before the North End club this
month.. The clever little, man from
Philadelphia waited in vain all day yes
terday and far into the night while
Manager John C. Desmond of the North
End club tore all around town seeking
a man to pit against Erne on the night
of June 26.
\u25a0 The North Enders are willing to put
Erne on with Lew' Powell, if they can
get ' a line on the : said Powell. Last
night they searched every nook and cor
ner of the city,' but Powell was nowhere
to be- had!-' lf he wants a match he can
have one* by presenting himself at the
North End club today. Powell was ldbk
ing for a fight a week ago, but'now that
the fight i is looking for him', he figures
among the absentes.* ,:. . : ~[ \u25a0 .-'. i
The- North End ..promoters have been
very : unfortunate, indeed.. -They took
the words of Johnny Frayne and his
manager, Heine Rafael, but 'when they
brought out- the man to meet Frayne
the latter" welched and crawfished and
immdiately stated that :he \u25a0 had a
chance to fight Corbett before Coffroth's
club. Maybe he will be crawling before
one of the /local clubs for a match yet.
The best he /deserves is the hook, and
the fans would like to see him get it.
\u25a0 Manager Desmond said last night
that he would pull off his show at all
hazards, no. matter whether his club
lost money or not. If Powell is not
available Chick Hudson may be Induced
to fight the Phlladelphian, but at all
events Desmond will . find somebody to
fight him. '
Promoter Jim Coffroth headed a
bunch of the local sporting men on a
trip to San Rafael yesterday afternoon
to take a peep at Leach Cross and
PYankle Neil. Both boxers were all
dolled, up for the occasion and both
showed ah - additional burst of 'speed
for the " benefit of the promoter and
his guests. Everybody was well satis
fled'with the entertainment.
Cross boxed three fair rounds with
his trainer, Johnny Loftus. Naturally
he was the center of attraction.- None
of the party had ever seen him with
the gloves on before and they all
wanted to get a line on how he would
stack up against "Fighting Dick" Hy
land, whom he meets at the Mission
street arena a week from next Satur
day afternoon. \u25a0 . ' \u25a0
Cross made, a very favorable impres
sion. He was far from being a flashy
boxer or a. sensational performer. He
waded* in- in an awkward sort of way
and kept fighting all; the time. Like
many more of. the present day ring
stars, he is classed as a sort of "awk
wardly clever". chap.- He is well built
and acts like a man who is capable of
taking a good beating.
Cross' chief stock in trade seems to
be a good right hand. He can whip
this over quickly and. apparently ef
fectively.- Loftus is a- clever fellow,
who can step around fast,, and . this
gives Cross a better opportunity to
show -how he can go against a man of
this class. He will increase his boxing
daily' from now on and will secure
more sparring partners.
*Neil worked three rounds with -Bobby
Evans, the likely young Portland ban
tam who recently Joined the local fight
colony. Evans is," rather a green chap,
but he-is tough and rugged a..d always
willing to exchange wallops with any
of them. He sailed right into Neil
and the latter had a great time, fight
ing his 'man' all over the ring. '
Neil looks to be In shape. He
weighs about 118: pounds and is ap
parently faster and stronger than the
night he fought Abe Attell here, his
last appearance in this city. Neil still
declares that if he beats Monte Attell
Saturday afternoon he will keep right
ahead till' he gets another match with
Abe. He won't admit that Abe is his
The bunch at Colma put in the usual
busy day. All of them, with the ex
ception of Attell, boxed and sparred
around and played handball and gave
the crowd quite an exhibition.' Krantz,
Smith and Hyland all k boxed with one
another. Krantz meets George Green
as one of the ring warmers to the
Attell-Neil mill and Smith is to hook
up with Jerry Perry in the other.' ,
As usual, all of Attell's numerous
relations will be at the \u25a0 ringside to
cheer him on. and all. of -them who
are flush financially will have a bet
on the little Hebrew. Monte will claim
the bantam weight championship If
he cleans Neil and he is very confident
that he can make good. He will do
his last boxing ; this afternoon. He
weighed 117 pounds yesterday.'
; - . • •'.',,\u25a0• .
Oh, look what Jeff has to say about
the- big black champion. \u25a0 He prac
tically admits that he is going to
fight Johnson, and for the first time he
goes to the bat and actually tells how
the battle is to be fought on his .part.
It's the hottest mess of hot shot that
has | been handed ' out by any fighter I in
many a day, an<Mt goes like this:
"I want to say in all sincerity that I
want to meet that fellow worse than I
ever wanted to. fight any living man.
He has no business with that title. I
have always been afraid of my own
strength in the ring, for fear I: would
kill a man, but I will have no fear
when I get in the ring with this fellow.
For the first time In my life I will hit
with all the force that is in me. I want
to see howfar.l can knock him."

SHOW HOW BAT
Films Will Be Put on Exhibition
at Novelty Theater Next
The moving pictures of the great
N'elson-Hyland fight will be thrown on
the canvas at the Novelty theater,
Steiner and O'Farrell streets, next
Sunday afternoon for the first time.
Bob Russell, who is. handling the pic
tures for Kelson. and Jack Grace. Nel
son's personal representative, made all
arrangements for the show house" yes
. From all • accounts the films ar»
among tbe . finest ever taken of j any
ring event. They were shown her* in
a private -exhibition two weeks ago
and impressed everybody who saw
them. At that time the pictures were
not. printed, only, the > negatives betnc
shown. These were sent. to New York
to be completed and are expected to
arrive at any hour.
When Nelson closed his contract
with the firm of Miles Brothers- he was
shrewd enough not .to undertake to
have the entire light taken if it went
over ten rounds. While in the rinjc
fighting Hyland Nelson gave his men
the office as to which rounds should
be reproduced, and consequently h«
, has secured the 10 best periods of ths
slashing battle. - \u25a0".-.' •
While putting in the final blows the
Battler again showed his wonderful'
presence of mind by stepping aside so
that the camera men had the full '
sweep of the ring, the principals and
the crowd at the ringside. The cameras
caught every move of both men and
the referee, for the day wa3 perfectly
clear and all conditions were favor
: able. ; \u25a0.., - • . -.----
Aside from the pictures of the; fight
itself the machines, secured a great
panorama of the crowd and It Is said
that nearly every man near the ropes
and many in the bleachers can pick
themselves out at a single glancev
There seems to.be a great deal of in
terest manifested by the fight fans and
indications are that the films will net
Bat a tidy sum.
Five performances will be given
daily for eight days, starting on, Sun
day afternoon at. 2 o'clock. This show
will be folio-wed by another at 3. The
evening performances will start at 8,
9 and 10 o'clock. Colonel Bill Thomp
