One of the greatest games of baseball ever played In this state was that be tween the Los Angeies team and the Gil; Edges of Sacramento on Friday last, the contest resulting in favor of the boys from the southland by the score of 1 to 0. Telegraphic accounts have been meager and the following suc cinct talc from the San Francisco Ex aminer will be read with interest by the "fans" of this city: It was the closest, warmest, hardest, most exciting ball game seen in San Francisco for many, many moons. Not one of the 5000 spectators who witnessed It can conceive that a better game was ever played. For seven throbbing in nings neither side scored. The concen trated efforts of the eighteen players resulted In a lone tally during the en tire nine acts. That tally belonged to Los Angeles. Whitewash decked Sac ramento. The ruction resultant when Greek meets Greek was a battle of ants com pared to that at Central park yesterday afternoon. People fastened to the benches like barnacles to a ship's bot tom during the play. Great outbursts of applause alternated with periods of comparative silence as the tide of con flict fluctuated. Some brilliant play would cause the crowd to cheer madly and then as another batsman faced the box a hush would settle upon the multitude, until his fate was de cided. Hughes and Harvey were the central figures in this, the greatest game of the tournament. Both were at their best. Men who had not struck out for months fanned fruitlessly whenever they came to bat. Sluggers like Hughes, Hen esey and Harvey died without a strug gle. The support given the opposing twlrlers was almost perfect. Every player was at highest tension and all of the three miscues were excusable. Though defeated, the Gilt Edge team not only did not lose, but gained pres tige. It won enough glory to List an ordinary club a lifetime. Had that saucy bounder in the eighth inning not. been so erratic there is no telMng who would have won. All credit, however, must be given to the citrus belters. They made one more hit than their op ponents, one less error, and, what is absolutely essential, on.' more run. A sensational victory and one wooden paddle, festooned with a wealth of vari colored ribbons, rewarded the efforts of the visitors from the southland. To Pitcher Harvey belongs much of th credit for the victory, but to "Baby" Whaling the paddle was awarded. When the big first baseman came to bat in the second Inning a small boy rushed to the piale and presented blm with the decor ated trophy. During the first inning Hughes and Harvey each struck out two men. Ir, the second Wilson hit safely after one man had *ecn retired, but was neatly doubled with Held by Lochhead and Henesey. In the latter half of the F:.tr act Smith led off for Sacramento witn a pretty single to left. After Shanahan had been blotted out Lochhead's sacri fice advanced Smith to third, he having in the meantime stolen second. Neth ercott got a base on balls and beat his way to the second station. Harvey then settled down and struck Walker out. The third and fourth rounds were all ln favor of the sunland giants. Leland culled a pretty hit after two men were out. but was retired trying to steal sec ond. Harvey struck out St rocker, Hen esey and Hughes, three of the lies', bat ters In the Gilt Edge nine, in rapid suc cession, ar.d Lelan.l made the only error charged to the visitors from the citrus belt on a slow grounder from "Buck" Hughes' bat. In the fourth Thurman lined the ball to the left Held fence. It looked a certainty for two bags. Walker, however, after a great backward run, reached the boundary about the same time the sphere got there. He leaped Into the air. and seeming to hang on the fence, got one hand in front of the ball, retiring his bit;- ■ wpoiKnt amid the hys terical cheers of the crowd. It was only this phenomenal catch that prevented the southerners from scoring right there, for Harvey, w ho was next up, batted the ball clear to the bleachers at the f nd of the Acid, landing on second before the sphere could be returned. He was lefl there by Whaling, who died by llni eaey's hand on a difficult liner. Thurman robbed Shanahan of what looked like c hit in the last half of the fourth by a splendid pick-up of a slow grounder. In the fifth "Buck" Hughes retired Francks by catching a high foul ulor.g the. third base line after a remarklable tun. Not until ihe eighth round did a man cross the plate. Then there was almost enough excitement to start a riot. After (.eland had been retired by Lochhead, Van Born got to first on a missed third SPORTS OF THE DAY strike. Thurman forced him to second. Thurman then stole his way to Smith's territory. Harvey lined a vicious hit directly at Lochhead. Just as the ball reached the Gilt Edge shortstop it bounded over his shoulder, rolling far Into center field. Before it could be re covered Thurman crossed the plate. The Brewers started the eighth at the head of their batting order. Their in tention evidently was to do or die right there. Harvey, in an attempt to strike out "Buck" Hughes, gave him a pass to first. Henesey placed a single past second. J. Hughes obeyed instructions and sacrificed, advancing the runners a base each. With one man dead and runners or. second and third. Smith hit to Francks. who threw home and "Buck" j was caught between third and the plate and run down. Shanahan landed a safe one in left, but Van Horn, by a splendid throw to Thurman, caught Henesey off the third bag, which he had overrun, and retired the side. Following is the score: GILT EDGES AB.

The Rex Athletic baseball learn played Its first game yesterday on the Maoy street '-rounds With Metal Works team.

Ryan is a welterweight, and to fight at 10S pounds is giving him a hard task. But hl9 wonderful foot work seems to make up for any difference in weight, height or reach that he encounters. McCoy I*, a brainy, clever fighter, but as yet he hardly shows that championship form that so many fond admirers declare) he possesses. The principal objection ln the past tr. pneumatic gloves—and the one which has made the most of them a failure —was the fact that when Inflated they were SO hard that it was as easy to bruise or knock a man out as with the light fight ing gloves of today; this objectionable feature is entirely overcome in the new Frazler glove, and slugging may be in dulged In with perfect safety. With this glove the dangerous and inhuman feat ures of boxing are entirely removed, and it will doubtless be the means of Intro ducing the manly art of self-defense to many who have hitherto been unfriendly to the sport. These gloves were used by Corbett while training for his recent ght with Fitzsimmons, and. the Meacham company have a letter from the ex-cham pion strongly endorsing them. Paddy Partell seems to have struck a dead easy mark in the Scotch champion. Latchie Tompson, on his debut in Eng land. The cable accounts of the affair indicate that Latchie was not in It. ex cept as receiver general, from start to j finish. Paddy is a willing soul, and ho ought to do well in England if he keeps his wits about him. Sammy Kelly, who feels aggrieved, that Dr. Ordway did not send him to England, to flgjit Pedlar Palmer, had about as much as he bargained for in besting Austin Rico before the South Beach Athletic club Monday night a week ago. At one stage of the game It looked a 9 though Rice would win, but Sammy got in a lucky stomach punch that changed the aspect of affairs. He la like Fitzsimmons in one respect—he generally wins by a lucky punch. Tom Sharkey was the referee. CYCLING At last the one-half mile paced record has gone to England. When the crack riders across the por.d began hammer ing at the mark, it did not take long for it to fall before them. First comes Stocks, then Platt-Betts, and then Stocks again, finishing with the marvel ous mark of 1:35 flat for the distance on a three-lap track. For years the French and English riders have been working at distance events, and the impression had arisen in this country that the mile record and the intermediates were the sole property of American riders, As it stands at present, pacing In the United States will have to be greatly Improved before the riders here can hope to get the coveted record back to Amer ican shores. The amateurs gave the best exhibition of riding at tho recent bicycle meet at Agricultural park. The professionals ir. this country have not yet arrived at that state where they can jockey and please the public at the same time, ln the j races last Thursday the apparent In ability of the professional riders to meet I a time limit of 2:25 was simply absurd. In one way the failure was due to the i management not providing pacemak ing as is customary in the east, but tha!_ an unpaced professional race should degenerate Into a loaf and be finished in the dizzy time of 2:52 is a crying shame on the sport Itself. Such performances bring discredit upon riders and man agers alike, and the latter In particular should be quick to observe this. Paul Percival, the referee, cannot be too highly commended for his firmness in staying closely to the time limit, and since it was not met, throwing the race out. A little more such firmness Will cause riders to stop similar tricks. ■♦• 4- 4 "Pinto Billy" Jenkins has a' position as manager of the business of the South Africa Importing and Trading company, at Cape Town. "Billy" has declared that he will never race again but in tends to become a staid and prosperous business man. THE KENNEL The insolence of poundkeepers and their deputies Is proverbial, and Oak land seems to be suffering just now with an acute attack of the malady. The courts, however, are coming to the res cue and providing the proper remedies. John Joseph, the sou of the Oakland poundmaster, has just been sentenced to pay a fine of $100 for his insolence to a lady of that city. The same perscrip tion a'l along the force might have been administered with advantage as a pre ventive against the spreading of this set ious infection. 11. T. Payne, the proprietor and edi tor of Field Sport, seems to have the sympathy and encouragement of every newspaper and sporting magazine on the coast in his recent fight against Mr. Mortimer's somewhat highanded action in attempting to muzzle the press. This is distinctly right and proper, and Mr. Payne deserves the thanks of every sporting writer In the country for the manly struggle he has made against an attempted imposition. • SPORTING NOTES The city of Chihuahua, Mexico, is to have a horse track, with J. G. Follans bc-e as the promoter. When the track is finished, It Is the intention to hold an annual fair and race meet. The Santa Monica Golf club has com pleted Its new links on Seventh street, and almost any afternoon a horde of enthusiastic golfers may be seen at j practice. j George H. Brooke, whose name is graven on the memories of football en thusiasts by his excellent work as full back for the famous Pennsylvania team, will coach the Stanford eleven this season. Mr, Brooke arrived from Philadelphia last week. It Is now said that Richard Croker, who went to England to "elevate" the .game of thoroughbred racing, has lost £78,829 on his ventures. Croker is one who toils not, neither does he spin, hence the all-absorbing question is,not "Where did he lose a fortune?" but "Where did he get one to lose?"— Horse Review. Manager Manning has loaned Brownie Foreman to Columbus until the end of the season. Brownie will wear the blue again next season. There fore Brownie Is in luck. By play ing with Columbus until the close of th? season he will probably get In the cup money, as Columbus is almost sure to finish in second place and play the cup series with Indianapolis. S. M. Philpott of Fort Huachuca, Ariz., telegraphs the Herald as follows: "Please give the amount of purse fought for by Hall and Fitzsimmons in spring of '95. Just purse offered by club." The purse offered by the Louisiana Athletic club for the fight between Jim Hall and Robert Fitzsimmons was $25,000, the largest purse ever hung up for a fight in this country. A side bet of $15,000 was made by the two men. Hall was put out in the fourth round.
