WINS FINAL STAKE EVENT OF
Steps Five Furlongs In Fast Time and
Beats Fustian for First Money
In Santa Catallna
The flnal stake event of the Ascot
meeting was run yesterday, being the
'renewal of the Santa Catallna selling
"stakes, which was run December 2,
and was won by Daruma, J. M.
Cooper's sensational Solltarle II filly.
The distance was seven furlongs ana
Blx of the best sprinters at the county
course were named to start, with Whoa
Bill carrying top weight.
Daruma was In light and her per
formances this season entitled h^r to
'the post of honor as favorite, and a
Btrong play forced her price from 6
to 6 down to 4 to 5 at post time,
i Daruna broke behind her field and
at the quarter was fourth, but her
creat speed sent her to the front in a
flash and she held the lead to the wire,
although Fustian made a strong bid in
the flnal strides and cut down the fllly s
lead to a head finish. 'j ' '■ ■ : -
Fustian and Workman finished sec
ond and third, with Sullivan's coal
black erratic nearly three lengths be
hind the first two. Whoa Bill, which
is the most consistent In-and-outer at
the track, tired in the flnal strides and
was beaten for show by Workman.
" The time required by the winner was
1-26U, which is within three quarters of
a second of the track record set by
trim Payne last season.
Senator Tim Sullivan of New York
had two candidates out for purses yes
terday and landed with one of them,
■DArkle showing a fine turn of speed
and much class by winning from Hester
XV In the fifth race, although the win-
! ner stumbled after the start and was
Carried wide in the stretch.
'■• DArkle is one of the eastern sensa
tions of last season and this was his
second out at Ascot. Miller put up
one of his star rides and, despite the
rough Journey and incidents that would
Ordinarily put a horse out of the run
'nitig he landed his mount an easy win
ner over one of the speediest sprinters
at Ascot at the distance, five and one
half furlongs. ■
I The performance of DArkle is all
the more remarkable when it is under
stood that he equaled the track record
for the distance, 1:06%, which is the
jnark set by Dalvay. Barring acci
dents and the ill luck in the Jams at
the head of the stretch, DArkle would
have set a new mark.
Hester W was a 1 to 2 favorite to
win this race, while DArkle was held
at 3s, and lack oJ support allowed the
price to go to 4s at post time.
Hester set a sizzling pace and opened
tip a big gap immediately after the
start, but was unequal to the task of
Btaying in front. In the flnal sixteenth
DArkle caught her and won by a
. Bavarian, which won Wednesday in
fast time, and at odds of 100 to 1, was
third, but this position was eight
lengths behind the winner.
Long Shot Wins
The day of the long shot has passed
if the card yesterday Is any criterion.
Four favorites at odds-on prices, two
necond choices and one long shot fur
nished the seven winners.
Navarro furnished the long shot sen
sation of the day by winning the baby
race, second on the card, at 40 to.l.
Navarro had started but once previous
ly and ran indifferently.
Wapnugootis was first away from the
post and Navarro was sixtli to get In
motion. Before the leader had gone a
sixteenth of a mile Navarro passed him
and was running away in sensational
At the head of the stretch Navarro
had a lead of five lengths and he gal
loped home an easy winner by four
lengths. Lady Allece was second and
Blue Bottle, the 1 to 2 favorite, was
lucky to be third.
• Sir Brinkley won the first race in
spreadeagle style. He was the class
and all else that is essential to the win
ner and nothing in against him could
make him run.
Seed Cake was second and Babe B,
as good as 25 to 1 and heavily played
to show, was third. James J. Cor
bett ran an Improved race, but was
not good enough to get in the money,
The third race was a gift to Conde,
although he scored a lucky win. Had
Prince Ching been given a real ride in
stead of the imitation he could not
Prince Ching was permitted to stroll
along in last position to the stretch
and finished on his own courage, get
ting, second money. The winner beat
him by two lengths. Sais carried 120
pounds and ran into third position,
•while Ingleside, the favorite, finished
The most exciting finish of the day
cccurred in the sixth race, which was
at one and one-sixteenth miles. Sun
ray and George P. McNear, which
opened equal choices at 6 to 5, were
the principal actors in this duel,
through the. stretch.
Public confidence In Sunray was so
great that 6 to 5 melted away to 4
to 6 at post time, while the same odds
on McNear soared to 11 to 5. Miss
Way Bowdish was so greatly fancied
that her 30s were reduced to 15s aa
the bugle sounded.
McNear was away to a fiying start
nnd he set a killing pace to the wire.
Sunray tagged along in third place un
til she turned into the stretch, when
Jockey Ross set her down for real
Sunray put up her usual strong fin
ish and caught McNear at the pad
dock gate. From this point to the wire
It was nip and tuck, but Koss put up
a better ride than Jackson and landed
the Ross fllly In front at the wire by
the margin of a short head, worth $325.
Gllpln was prominent in the running
throughout, lasting long enough to get
the show money from Miss May Bow
dish. He was second to the stretch,
but the pace became too hot for him
and he permitted Sunray and McNear
to flght it out for first money and took
the show, '"i :">.:•
< Bonnie Keg had an easy time winning
the final race from Jostle's Jewel. Bat
tlste took Bonnie away from the post
in . front and kept him there all- the
;~vay to the wire.
'The Roustabout had some preten
sions . and remained in second place
until. within fifty yards of the wire,
where his heart failed him and he
dropped back to third place and al
lowed Josie to take the place money.
William Walker shipped his entire
string of horses to Hot Springs last
night and will campaign them through
the Mississippi valley during the sum
mer."; He expects to return to Ascot
next season and says that the present
season has been a good one, as he sent

The Man Angel when it In ready to

by the strength of the operator.

reason that it can be propelled over
the camp of an enemy in the night and
be dropped without making a sound.

FIGHT TRUST IS
SEEKS CORNER ON PUGILISTIC
GAME ON COAST
Attempt at Establishing Branch Club
In Los Angeles Meets With
Disfavor Among Local
The announcement that Joe Gans
and Mike Twin Sullivan are matched
to box twenty rounds at welterweights
under the auspices of a new local flght
club, which ia said to be under the
direction of Morris Levy, a 'Frisco
flght promoter, is the official confirma
tion of the report that 'Frisco is about
to invade the Los Angeles field and
establish a branch of the fight trust
in this city.
Local fight fans will not take kindly
to a project of this nature, because
it will be the beginning of the end of
the boxing game in Los Angeles. In
the paßt and up to date the local game
ha^ been unusually free of tnlnt and
the disrepute which has nttached to
the 'Frisco game. The Pacific Athletic
club has been conducted upon a plane
which has warded off criticism and
rendered unjustifiable any suspicion
of "fake" fights or "frame-ups."
Because the game has thus been con
ducted upon a clean basis it. has flour
ished and has been tolerated.' Today
Los Angeles is the Mecca toward which
reputable boxers turn for engagements
because the sport is liberally patron
ized and is consistently clean and. on
On the contrary 'Frisco fight clubs
have contributed all the disgrace and
injury sustained by the sport in recent
yearß on the coast and have added sen
sation after sensation and confession
after confession which tend to prove
that the up-state game is in a bad way.
The recent . organization .in 'Frisco
of a fight trust, whereby one organiza
tion controls nil the clubs and monopo
lizes all the boxing affairs of that city,
started a light among the promoters of
the sport that promises to drag politics
into the game and the inevitable result
can only be adverse legislation. ;
The attempt at establishment of a
branch oX the fight trust in Los Angeles
gives an indication of the intent of the
trust to monopolize the game on the
coast and absorb or put out of busi
ness all rival organizations.
When, an Orpheum circuit of fight
clubs has been established on the
coast, all to be under the direction of
the flght trust in 'Frisco, the trust will
be in a psition to force prominent and
top-notch boxers to pass up the In
dependent club now in existence in Los
Angeles, as well as other independent
clubs on the coast, and pay exclusive
homage to the trust at 'Frisco.
Naturally, . championship contests
will be limited to 'Frisco and v the
'.'branch agencies" in Los Angeles and
other cities on the coast will be forced
to patronize the overflow of rub-dubs
and has-beens from 'Frisco, and who
have ceased to be attractions else
where, or take the ;ind of the fight
melon. '■■■■■': ■' '
Morris Levy, who is promoting the
project of a new flght club in Los An
geles, residc3 in 'Frisco and is actively
Interested in 'the game there. It is
charged that 'he was one of the pro
moters of the Neil-Tenny bout, which
resulted in the death of Tenny. It
has aiso been charged by 'Frisco news
papers that the flght was another fixed
affair for which 'Frisco has become
Los Angeles patrons of the sport
have not been treated to the ; novel
sensation of a fake flght and have no
desire to become accustomed to It.
Neither have they found it necessary
to patronize a pugilistic show in which
tho principal actors were has-beeno or
The local game in the past has been
conducted to the satisfaction of the
element which lends support to such
institutions, and Manager McCarey
has presented many high-class enter
tainments, wherein the principals were
prominent in the boxing world and
worthy aspirants to championship
The local game is flourishing under
conditions that have prevented any
serious complaint and its patrons are
naturally unfavorable to subordinat
ing it to the espionage and control
of 'Frisco promoters and their. methods,
or permitting the northern promoters
to step in and disrupt the game and
create stlfe that must inevitably mean
its ruin and elimination.

IS AT HAND
ANGELS WILL REPORT FOR
Seraph Aggregation Should Be In
the Running for the Pennant
\ From the Call of
The click of the bat, early season
fumbles, long, hard chases in the out
field, sore muscles and various other,
happenings peculiar to the opening of
a baseball era will be the order •of
things from now on.
Tomorrow morning the Angel base
ball team will report to Capt. Dillon
for preliminary practice, and during
the ensuing days prior to the opening
gume it will be a dally grind for the
men who are expected to bring home
thn pennant for Los Angeles. .
The coming season promises to be In
many respects one of the most notable
in the history of the Pacific coast dia
mond, not only because of the grow
ing popularity of the game in Califor
nia and the demand for the best play
ers which can be signed, but also by
reason of the fact that every club has
been engaged in .one or rflore little
squabbles, which will add spice to -the
trend of play throughout the season.
The San Francisco ball fans have
been ,kept on edge for the past six
weeks as n result of the contentions
which have arisen in the north regard
ing the management of the Seals.
Clunie, who is reported to have sold
his stock In the 'Frisco club, a short
time before his alleged retirement
threatened, to close Recreation park to
the games of the league.
Clunie ia very much disgruntled over
the fact that he has not been able to
secure all the players whom he thought
would prove valuable acquisitions to
the Seals, and as a result Is making
things miserable for everybody in gen
eral, according to all reports from the
The case of Mohler, whom Clunie
claims, has been the cause of no end
of trouble, but at the present writing
it would appear that the little sec
ond baseman will romp in a Seattle
uniform when time is called for tho
Every bickering which has arisen will
add to the general interest, however,
for the element of "getting even" when
playing time comes round without
doubt ndds to the keenness of any con
test. This was strongly apparent sev
eral years ago when the appearance of
the San Francisco team was the occa
sion for an outpouring of fans in re
sponse to an inspiration that some
thing would be doing when Capt.
Pabst, who then directed the Seals,
and tho remainder of his aggressive
bunch lined up with the Seraphs.
There were some rattling good games
In those days and, though the spirit
of animosity which often manifested
Itself was to be condemned, it resulted
in some thrilling finishes that are still
fresh in the minds of the fans.
"I decry rough ball." said a well
known fan yesterday, "but I can't help
thinking that some of those games way
back when Los Angeles first branched
out as a ball town were among the best
wp have had."
The present rivalry which has arisen,
especially nmong the managers of the
northern teams and the attendant ex
citement of the fans, should make the
coming season anything but slow".'"', ,
The Seraphs will appear with prac
tically the same line-up as marked tho
close of the last season. Flood and
Smith aro the only veterans who aro
not to cast their fortunes wilh Morley
for another series. Flood and Smith
are held by Portland, but the latter de
clares that if he cannot play in Los
Angeles it will be back to the dentist's
chair for him. • ' ' :
"Kitty" Brashear, owing to the death
of a brother in tho east, will not; be
able to return before another week, but
will eventually report to Dillon.. .
Whether Heinle Spies will ever again
play ball '■depends upon his ability to
bring his throwing arm to its old timo
form. Local fans wl" regret to wit
ness the withdrawal of the "iron man
from the game, as he has always re
tained a warm spot in the hearts of
Los Angeles followers of the game.
Just who will hold down third base
has not been determined. Morley had
intended playing a local amateur ,at
the difficult corner, but was unable to
close the deal. It may be that Atz
will be put in at the third bag and then
the position of shortstop will have to
Curtis Bernard will again be in cen
ter field and a better man for the po
sition would be difficult to find in either
of the major leagues. His fielding,
while always consistent, was little
short of marvelous toward the close of
the past series, and the longer he plays
the better the agile garden man looms
Cravath, he of celery fame, will am
ble around in right once more. Eager
may be called upon to do most of the
catching in the event of Spies' inability
The pitching staff remains intact and
should be able to hold its own with
any of the coast twirling combinations
that have so far been rigged up. ..".''. ■':;; ■*>
