Wanderers Assist In Their Defeat by
Weird Playing at Critical Stages
of a Long Drawn
Out Game
It required twelve innings to do it,
but the hoodoo is broken and the
Angels turned the trick in one of the
sharpest games of ball yet pulled oft at
Chutes park.
Just how long It hag been since the
Seraphs won a Sunday game on the
home grounds is beyond the memory of
the fans, and when Tim Flood went
tearing around the bases for the decid
ing run in the last half of the twelfth
there was enough noise to make up for
the Sabbath-like silence which for
months past has fallen over the crowd
as they watched the last bad Angel
pop into the air or swing in vain at the
A great game and nothing less, with
the crisp air of the afternoon putting
life and vigor into the players, and from
the time that the first player stepped
to the plate there was no let up to the
swing and dash that kept the crowd in
a state of uncertainty. It was a
pitchers' battle royal with honors about
even. Tozer and Fitzgerald were in
great form, and though both fell into
several bad holes they managed to
squirm out before much damage re
Pretty plays abounded in profusion
and more than one piece of clever head
work tied a runner to the bag or nipped
a.' score when appearances were sorry
for either side. In the fifth inning,
after Casey had doubled to center with
no outs, Hogan came to bat and dumped
a long bunt into the infield which Tozer,
Smith and Toman, in an undecided mo
ment, let roll to a stop, while he of the
bright efre sped to first, Casey going to
Fitzgerald fanned and Doyle walked
to the plate prepared to break up the
game then and there. He lined a
scorcher to Flood, who, like a flash,
touched unhappy Hogan and doubled
Doyle at the Initial sack. The stunt
was one of the best pulled off on the
local grounds during the present series,
and almost started a riot of joy.
Big Mike Lynch, in center field for
the Tigers, was a veritable well, and
anything that went his way was easy
Tozer In Form
Tozer had them breaking over the
plate like a big leaguer in midsummer,
and eight of the Tigers swung their
figurative heads off in an effort to con
nect. Four bases on balls added in
terest to the game, and Fisher's men
took advantage of them in a manner
that threatened to make the bell ring.
But the tall boy from the Mormon
country was there in the pinch, and all
went well.
Fitzgerald pitched good ball and al
lowed but one free pass. Four errors
were chalked against his team, and two
of them figured in the Angels' brace of
Tacoma started scoring in the fifth
when McLaughlln walked and went to
second on Lynch's sacrifice. Casey
singled and Mac came home. This was
the end for Mike and his men, and
during the remainder of the fun they
contented themselves with holding the
Angels to just one run on the wrong
side of their ledger.
The Seraphs came back with the
tying score in the next inning and there
was considerable excitement before the
situation cleared up. Bobby Eager lined
a sizzler down the short field that
Truck Eagan's arms fell short of.
Casey, in a laudable effort to nail the
sphere, stood on his head to the vast
amusement of the spectators.
Tozer sacrificed and Tommy Sheehan
became bo Interested in watching his
progress to first that he forgot the
corner eack, and Bobby displayed his
wisdom in going on to third. Nordyke
threw high to get him, and the ball
went Into the left field bleachers as
Bobby tripped over the bag.
It was one, two, three until the last
half of the twelfth, and then Tim
Flood leaped into the limelight by
smashing one far into light field which
had all the earmarks of a two-sacker.
Doyle thought otherwise and made a
try at spoiling the aspirations of the
second baseman in the vicinity of his
own camping ground. The weird throw
.went wild and the game was over.

Each Is In Good Condition for Friday's
Fight and Has Ceased Hard Work
to Scrap at Long Distance
Through the Press
Jack O'Brien has added another spar
ring partner to his list of helpers for
the battle with Kauffman Friday night.
Sam Spaldlng Is the latest find, ana
It Is said that he is giving Jack all
the heavyweight boxing he wants.
Spalding Is Biddy Bishop's strapping
youngster and tnkes great delight In
sending In his terrific stabs to O'Brien's
body. Last week during one of the
sparring bouts between them Jack
sailed Into the youngster and jarred
him Immensely with a couple of leads
to the face. One of Spaldlng's eyes
was closed and It was necessary to
use a bellows to rive the youngster a
chance to breathe for a time.
All of this Is pointed to as Incidents
tending to show that the twenty pounds
difference will not be so much In favor
of the kid wonder when he meets
O'Brien as it has been touted.
O'Brien has broken his custom of not
bragging about his fights, and is re
ported as saying that it Is all over
now, that he will win In jig time, and
that, while he regrets the necessity of
puncturing Al's boomlet for heavy
weight honors, he has some aspiration*
in that line himself and 'that he re
gards himself as bound to give Kauff
man a good-sized thrashing.
Kauffman is equally chesty In his
claims. He says that he has no in
tentions of breaking any records ana
will put Jack to sleep in the first
round, ns he has performed with all
others. He says that, while Jack is a
nice fellow all right, he had no busi
ness taking on Buch an unwieldy con
tract, and since he has done so it be
comes the Bad duty of the rising gen
eration to stop him before he gets in
the way of Jeffries or some one else
and gets hurt.
Both are spurred on In their train
ing by the news that Hart is coming
to the coast after their scalps. Each
owns up to a hankering for a biff-bang
battle with the title holder, and realizes
that their right to meet the champ de
pends upon the result of Friday night's
Delaney announces that his kid won
der is In trim to go Into the ring at
the present moment, but this fast will
not cause a cessation in work.
It is generally recognized that De*
laney is too cute to allow Al to go
up against O'Brien without proper
training, and when the two pugs come
together the best man should win, as
there will be no room for excuses after
Stanford vs. Indians
By an error a statement was made In
this column yesterday morning that
the next big football game would be
played by Berkeley and Stanford, when
It should have been Stanford and the
Indians. The Indians will be the op
ponents of Stanford at Fiesta park
next Saturday, when the football fans
of California will learn the relative
strength of the teams competing for
championship honors. Should the In
dians win from Stanford the Cardi
nals will be a slight factor in the final
result of the championship series, while
the opposite would be true If Stanford
wins by anything like as big a score
as Berkeley made against the braves
Poe Brothers Officiate
John P. Poe, jr., and Neilson Poe,
graduates of Princeton, will probably
be selected to officiate at the big foot
ball game between Stanford and Berke
ley at Palo Alto when the two insti
tutions send their football warriors
to fight it out for the championship.
John Poe played on the Princeton
team In 1891 and 1892 and was coach
for several years. Neilson Poe was
coach last year at Princeton.
Terry Is Next
Manager Billy Nolan announces that
if McGovern wants a fight with Nelson
he can have first chance at the title
held by the Dane. Nolan is greatly im
pressed with the ease in which Mc-
Govern put away Murphy a few days
ago and expresses the belief that he
is the best of the fighters now seek
ing a scrap with the Battler.
Kid on Honeymoon
Kid McCoy will punch anybody's face
who addresses him by his ring cogno
men in future, saying that the name
of Kid McCoy is an Insult to him since
he became the husband of the wealthy
Mrs. Ellis. He is now enjoying the
honeymoon period in one of the sev
eral autos owned by his wife, and
proposes to take life easy from now on.
At least until the former widow stops
his allowance.
Roseben Retired
Davy Johnson, the plunger, has de
cided to retire Roseben until next sea
son. "If I run him again this season
he will have to carry a ton of weight
and he might break down or be in
jured, and he is too great a horse for
me to take any chances with. There
fore I shall give him a rest until next
season." Wise head, Davy.
Ned Hanlon to. St. Louis
The report that Hank O'Day had
been employed to manage the St. Louts
Cardinals next year may have been
premature if reports telegraphed from
the east are to be accepted with any
truth. It is said that the Robinsons
are negotiating with Ned Hanlon, who
last season managed the tailenders—
Brooklyn— and for several seasons man
aged the old champion Orioles. Ned
would command a stiff salary, but the
Robinsons believe he is worth it. St.
Louis has not had a respectable stand
ing in any baseball league in many
years and the game has suffered as a
Welch to Referee
Aleck Greggalns, manager of Wood
ward's pavilion, where the O'Brlen-
Kauffman battle is to be held Friday
night, announces that Jack Welch, tho
club's official referee, will be the third
man in the ring when the fight gong
taps. Welch is satisfactory to O'Brien
end Kauffman.
France Refuses Cup
The Automobile club of France has
written a letter to the Vanderbllt cup
commission declining the trophy won
by Hemery recently. The objection
made la that France does not want the
next race or any other automobile
race and, not willing that the cup
should be defended on its soil, the
French people prefer to relinquish the
trophy ot ylctorr. . . t-

Eastern Owners and Grand Circuit
Performers Are Expected to
Participate in the
Agricultural Park is a lively place
these days. Trotters and pacers stir
up the dust every morning and along
the rail alert owners snap their
watches and smile or frown, according
to the time made.
Preparations are now under way for
a harness meet that is expected to sur
pass anything ever attempted before
on the coast. More fast trotters and
sidewheelers will be seen on the local
track during the latter part of next
month than have ever stepped over a
Southern California course.
A couple of hundred are already be
ing trained at Agricultural and there
lit always a good sized crowd of the
harness enthusiasts on hand to study
the horses.
Great Match Race
Arrangements are almost completed
for a match race that will attract the
attention of the entire country. The
purses offered will all be large and the
fields that will contest will be big and
well matched.
The meeting held last spring furn
ished the best harness racing California
had ever seen and easterners who were
here said it compared with the Grand
Circuit races in the east. Almost
every stake was a contest and the big
events were all won in fast. time.
Zolock, the star of the coast this
year, will be on hand and horsemen
are predicting 2:04 or better for this
great stallion.
The big harness meetings in the east
being over, many owners are preparing
to ship their stables to the coast for
the races here. The local meeting will
be preceded by a three-day meeting at
San Bernardino, where great prepara
tions are being made, and a meeting of
similar length at Santa Ana.
Tommy Dowd Coaching
Tommy Dowd, one of Chris Yon der
Ahe's old Browns, is coaching the St.

Tommy was once one of the* greatest
ball players in the big league and has
been engaged In business during the
summer months and coaches football
and baseball teams for colleges during

Nelson. Britt Contest, Reproduced at
the Casino Theater, Is Remark,
ably Clear
The moving pictures of the Nelson-
Brltt fight at Colma, which will be
the attraction at the Casino theater
for the coming two weeks, were dis
played in a private pxhibltlon at the
play house last evening, and from the
expressions of the men who sat at the
ring side the films are the finest rep
resentations of any fight in the his
tory of the prize ring.
Theater men say that Nolan, Nel
son's manager, who sold his right to the
pictures for $5000, made the mistake of
his life and the revenue which the
Brltt boya will obtain from their share
in the enterprise should put them on
easy street fov life.
Every movement and emotion which
actuated the vast throng is as appar
ent from the pit of the house as it was
to those by the ropes, and the human
Interest of the scene does not cease
from the time the various celebrities
make their appearance until, amid the
frantic demonstrations of the crowd,
Nelson lifts Brltt, bleeding and beaten,
from the ropes after the knock-out.

Rube Jefferles haa been signed by
Manager Billy Roch» of the National
club, San Diego, for a six-round go
with Frank Fields, the affair to be the
main preliminary to the battle between
Dave Barry and Billy Woods on the
night of Nov. 2.
The fight will be at catch weights
and the Rube will not carry less than
158 pounds, while his opponent will tote
not less than ten pounds lighter, and
more probably will have to give The
Rube thirteen pounds.
Both have been knocked out by War
ren Zubrlck. The Buffalo dentist ad
ministered the sleep medicine to Fields
after eight hard rounds, in which
Fields, who was thirteen pounds lighter,
made a game fight until the last mo
ment and walloped Zubrick in lively
Rube went out In the second round
and was really whipped in the first in
ning of his scrap with Zubrlck, never
being in the running for a moment.
On this dope, Fields should experi
ence little difficulty in getting the de
cision over the local boy. However, the
difference In weight may be more of
an item between these than it would be
between the Rube and Zubrlck.
Fields will experience great difficulty
In getting to 145 for the fight and be
In any condition for a milling with
Rube's terrific right. And as Fields is
one of the slap-bang scrappers and
loves to mix matters from the tap of
the gong, he Is more liable to step Into
one of Rube's piston rods than was
Zubrick, the foxy fellow.

One 150 to 1 Shot Might Have Wo»-
Had He Not Run Away for Nearly
180 Miles When Taken to
the Post
Where is the piker or perpetual fol
lower of "good things" at the race
track who hasn't played the "hunch"
to the limit. Hunches are peculiar
things. Whence they come, where they
go, no one knows. Whenever a hunch
happens around right and makes good
it is touted broadcast, but the tens
of thousands of hunches which fall
down in a practical test are unheard
The greatest hunch is the dream.
The hot brained form player who nev
er cashes a bet acquires; a habit of
dreaming that such-and-such a horse
won a race. Forever afterwards, un
til that horse is actually entered in a
race, the unfortunate dreams of what
he will flo with all the wealth which
ho expects to win when the dream
land horse goes to the post. One of
these dreamers recently recounted his
experiences to a crowd of followers of
the form charts about like this:
"There was once a tall negro around
the New York tracks who cleaned up
several small fortunes by dreaming
for a living. He worked a pretty
shrewd game for several months be
fore he was found out.
"He would approach a prospective
bettor and say, 'Bobs, Ise had a dream
'bout dls hoss', naming one of the
long Rhots in the race, and if the
bait was swallowed he woul catch an
other Rucker and so on until he had
some one down on every horse In tho
race. .
"After he had received several thous
and dollars as his part of such dream
tips, he was detected and run away
from the track.
Ran Away 186 Miles
"Out at the track I took mine out in
masticating salted peanuts until the
fourth race, the race in which the
black babesky of the slumber hunch
was to towrope 'em.
"When the slates were hoisted the
black one was the only 100 to 1 thing
In the lot. I got my $30 down on him
In sawbuck lots at that figure, and
then leaned against the rail to watch
the start, right In front of the stand.
"The black butterfly ran away from
them all and hid, all right. He was
100 yards in front of them all before
they knew what was coming off. Fact
Ik, the others hadn't started at all.
"He was the only one to start. He
was in such a hurry that he burst
through the barrier as soon as they
lined up in front of the webbing. Ha
probably thought he was to run in a
walk-over in the Me Only stakes.
"He tossed his boy at the first turn,
hopped the infield fence, went the full
steeplechase course twice around, flag
ging the jumps, and then he gamboled
over the high fence inclosing the
ground and took for the veldt.
"They got him about three weeks
later, up around Troy or somewhere
near the headwaters of the Hudson,
where they found him feeding on
acorns and wild berries and slick as a
circus Shetland.
"But that didn't take all of the curl
out of my dream dope. I knew that
the black would have connected if he'd
got away on a line with the others,
and I knew, too, that If the race had
been about two miles, or the distance
between Long Island and Albany, the
black would have won by about three
days. So I Just waited for another
"It came along, all right, one night.
I dreamed that I saw a bright maza
rine blue horse spinning along the
stretch, just fit to kill. The blue horsa
was so much doubled up with the
laughs that he swerved and zigzagged
all over the track in the last sixteenth,
but he got home in front by as far
ay from here to Bladensburg. When I
came to next morning I lay In bed
quite a while trying to Interpret that
one. It didn't look like a legtimate
coin-aggregating hunch to me, for who
over heard of * blue horse? I was on
the point of passing up that slumber
suggestion when I picked up the paper
at breakfast to take a look at the en
tries for that day.
"True Blue and Blueaway were slat
ed to go In the first race.
"Oh, I guess I'm the punk dreamist,
hey?' said I to myself then, when I
saw those two names, and both of
them swell horses.
"I was in New Orleans a few months
later. During the long winter mud
meeting there I dreamed that I saw a
pure white horse winning a race all by
himself at the New Orleans track. I
woke up chuckling, for I knew that a
pure white race horse, a plugovitch by
the name of Elmer S., was going to
race at the track on the very next day.
In addition to the dream, for which
I'd have fallen with a thud only a
few brief months before. I saw about
twenty-three red-headed women around
town that morning and on my way to
the track.
"When the bunch with the white
Elmer S. In it paraded to the post I
was all a-gurgle with self-congratula
tion to think of how I had broke away
from that dream junk. 'Only a little
while ago,' I gloated to myself. 'If
anything bearing on or appertaining to
a white plug like that Elmer S. had
flashed through me while I was in the
hay I'd have had a temperature of 109
until I got a chance to Joggle In all of
my change on it, and here I am now,
just a-laughing, and with a ticket on
the sure-enough winner in my pocket.'
"Just then the field got away, and
Elmer S., the white one, taking a dis
like to the company he found himself
in, when the far turn was reached, Just
nicked up his doll rags and came horn«
alone, with all of the 150 to 1 against
him that you could have shot a bis
cuit at out of a 10-Inch gun.
"And this sums up in a few reasons
why, when I hear the dream boya
valving out escaping steam about the
droskeys of dough they've hauled
away through .somnambulistic selec
tions, I feel like staking 'em to a smokes
