Directors of League Denounce Action
of Vernon City Trustees In
Denying Application of
Scotty Allen
The managers of the baseball teams
which comprise the Southern State
Baseball league met'yesterday evening
and drew up a schedule of Sunday
games which should result In some of
the best amateur ball which has been
witnessed during the past season
around Los Angeles. The directors
had also a prolonged argument con
cerning the Hermosa-.Market National
game of last Sunday, and It was de
cided to call the game off and play it
over at some later date.
Nearly every member of the league
who attended the meeting expressed in
dignation at the treatment which
Bootty Allen received at the hands of
the Vernon trustees when be applied to
that august body for a license to
charge admission to baseball games at
Joy park In the city of Vernon. The
directors passed a resolution regarding
the action of tho trustees as follows:
"Resolved, That the action of the
Vernon trustees In denying J. B. All'
a permit to charge admission to Joy
park be denounced as not being in har
mony with the promotion of amateur
baseball players in Southern California.
Mr. Allen has spent his money, time
and labor In the loyal support of the
national game, and we pledge our as-
Si Stance to him In every way to defeat
fie action of the aforesaid trustees."
The schedule of games arranged for
Sunday should bring out some of the
fastest and most closely contested
games played during the present sea
son. When the Redondo nine crosses
bats with the Downey boys there.
should result some real baseball, and
plenty of it. Both nines are In form
and ire playing about equally, both
having an average of .600. The same
may be said of the Wellingtons and
the Dyas-Clines, which teams, although
they are at the foot of the list, have
Improved lately and will meet In what
should prove to be a colsoly contested
game. Sunday's lineups:

Grand Union, United States Hotel,
Spinaway and Travers Stakes
Will Be Run for Youngsters.
SARATOGA, N. V., Aug. s.—Follow
ing the lead of the Coney Island
Jockey club, tho Saratoga association
will reopen for yearlings on August
16 four of the old-time specials at the
springs. This was decided upon at a
recent meeting of the executive com
mittee. The races to be reopened are
the Grand Union and United States
Hotel for 2-year-old colts and fillies,
the Spinaway for 2-year-old fillies and
the Travers for 3-year-olds, the Grand
Union and United States at $6,000 each
and the others at $5,000 each. The 2
year-old races will be, run next sea
son and 3-year-old race In 1911. Noth
ing was done with respect to the Ala
bama, the principal event for 3-year
old fillies, the inference being that that
raco may be dropped for a spell. The
executive committee will not decide as
to the Hopeful until some time in Octo
ber, but it Is safe to predict that it,
too, will be renewed In November.
The Grand Union and United States
will be three-quarter races as formerly,
the Splnaway a five and a half furlong
dash and the Travers a gallop of one
mile and a furlong. The Grand Union
and United Slates are increased $4,500
each over their values fhls season, but
the Travers and the Sptnaway are cut
a bit. The former Is this year a guar
anteed race of $7,600 and the latter one
of $10,000.
Richard T. Wilson, Jr., J. Harry
Alexandra and Andrew Miller, the ex
ecutive officers of the Saratoga as
sociation, are confident that their spe
cials will fill well, and It is more than
probable that their general program
for next season will be Improved all i
along the line.
Meanwhile things are shaping up well
for the coming meeting. James Rowe j
has arrived at the springs with the
strong stable of James R. Keene. |
Thomas Welsh, Woodward Clay, John j
Hynes and John K. Madden with their i
horses are also at the track.

Local Boys Land on Anderson for
16 Hits—Are Treated to Chicken
Dinner and Foot
The Redonrlo baseball team of the
Southern State league Journeyed to
Upland yesterday aiternoon and wal
loped the nine of that city to the tune
of 8 to 2, allowing them but one hit.
The local boys never left the result in
doubt from the first Inning, and wal
loped the ball Into every corner of the
field, getting sixteen hits off of the
Upland twlrler. Every man who stepped
up to the plate, with the exception of
i'reston ami Hydo, connected with at
lp.jst one hit and sometimes two, land
ing the horsehide Into every garden of
the outfield. Both Venable and O'Con
nor of the winners connected for home
runs, while the former, who tossed ball
for the Redondos, allowed but one hit.
The game was held at a merchants'
carnival given at the valley city for
the purpose of raising money for a town
band. Not only did the local boys
play baseball, but they ran races, drank
pink lemonade, made of Upland lemons,
and were allowed to vote for the pret
tiest girl in Upland. They were also
treated to a chicken dinner and got
away with so many of last year's birds
that they will probably knock fouls for
a month. Following are the figures:

Les Henry has received a number of
entry blanks from Seattle for the Junior
and senior national championships
which will be held on the athletic field
of the Alaska-Yukon-Paciflc exposition
August 13 and 14. The meet, which will
include every track and field event of
amateur athletics, will be held under
the management of the A. A. U., and a
large list of contestants is looked for
ward to.
Among the athletes who will repre
sent Southern California will be Robert
Merrlam of Pomona college, who is in
great form and cleared the bar in the
high Jump at the recent meet at Ascot
park when 5 feet 11 inches above the
ground. Merrlam is capable of doing
6 feet, and should prove a formidable
contender at the northern meet. James
Donohue of St. Vincent's will also
Journey to the fair and will enter the
hurdle races. Donohue made a great
showing at Ascot recently when he ne
gotiated the 120-yard hurdles In time
which came within two-fifths of a sec
ond of the world's record over a medio
cre track and with a strong breeze in
his face. Other entries are expected
within the following week.

Many Believe Guernsey and Reynolds
Will Be Champions—Nevins Has
Benefit of 18 Points
The first hadicap handball tourna
ment played at the L,og Angeles Ath
letic club will wind up with fireworks
Saturday. It is probable that Reynolds
and Guernsey, the old war horses of
the closed court, will come together in
the death struggle, and del.ate as to
the outcome Is waxing loud at the club
In order to clear the way for tho
final grapple Keynolds, who cleaned
up Welton with his handicap of 17 yes
terday, will take on Fred Selgle, who
will play nine points against his
scratch opponent. Guernsey will mix
| it with the. matinee Idol, BUI Nevins
William is In full training, having re
duced his weight to less than 260
pounds. He vy-ltl have a lead of only
IS during the games. Should kind for
tune or blind luck cause Nevins to
swat the ball in such manner that he
will fluke through with three, little
points in each game while Guernsey is
running up 21 points, the youthful
member will get Into the finals for the
tirst time in his life, and he has min
gled with the juniors not a little. How
ever, the winners, according to Hie
dopesters, are Keynolds and Guernsey,
although J. H. Nest will be in the way
somewhat. The latter came In on a
I pass. With His usual phenomenal luck
he drew the only bye that was lose,
and sailed past the semi-flnals without
a single squall.
Guernsey and Reynolds in Form
Both of the scratch men have back
ers. Guernsey, who has vitality, a ter
rific drive, a grayhound sprint and a
reach which swoops in even some of the.
near Impossibles, is a veteran who al
ways is dangerous to the most skilled
opponent. Reynolds also Is a crack-a-
Jack, and he now is In the pink of con
dition, backed by plenty of recent prac
tice. His accuracy Is formidable, while
he has phenomenal skill in killing from
any angle of the court.
Play in the finals will start Saturday
afternoon and the tournament will be
ended by evening. The management of
the tournament has proven pleasing to
players and spectators. All matches
have been pulled off oti time, and none
of the arrangements have buen allowed
to drag for an instant.
00 successful has proved the first
handicap tournament that the club di
rectors have decided to make It an an
nual affair hereafter, for members have
evinced more lively interest in these
games than In any which have been
played during recent years.
Following are yesterday's results:
Ray Dunnigan beat Bob Wilson In
two straight games, 21-19, 21-18. Lou
! Guernsey won from Bill Henderson,
two out of three games, 20-21, 21-16,
21-1!). Reynolds defeated Jay Welton,
! 21-17. 21-20. Siegel won two out of
! three games from Schepp, after hay
! Ing been badly beaten himself In the
! opening round, 5-21, 21-14, 21-16. Nest
I won from Witt, 21-20, 21-17.
Areonaut Takes Aeroplane with Him
from Rheims, N. V., to Rheims,
In French Republic, and Is
Confident of Winning
Glenn Curtiss, the aerialist who has
made a number of successful flights
over Long Island, sails this afternoon
on the French liner La Savoie for
France, where he will represent the
United States iii the international con
tests at Rheims. Oddly enough, Mr.
Curtiss made his first experimental
(lights at the town of Rheims, in New
York state.
"The machine I am taking with me,"
said Mr. Curtiss, "is a new one and
never has been given a trial, but since
it is the counterpart of the one with
which I have made some successful
flights down on Long Island I am sure
it will fly.
"The engine is a little larger. The
express company says it cannot get my
machine to Rheims before Aug. 19,
which will leave me only three days
to put it together and try it, tor the
week's events begin Aug. 22. But I
hope to be ready qn time and with a
new eight-cylinder engine I expect my
machine will maka a creditable showing
for the United States.
"I am going to try principally for
the international cup offered by James
Gordon Bennett for the aeroplane nego
tiating a sat course of about twelve
and one-half miles in the best time. I
shall try, too, for several other prizes
offered in some other flying contests.
"If successful at Rheims, I will prob
ably stay in Europe a while this fall
and make flights elsewhere."
Mr. Curtiss is the only American en
tered against all of the successful avi
ators in the Rheims contests.

Closely Contested Election at Summer
Resort Towns Results in Defeat
for Pet Plans of North
_ —
[Special to The Herald.]
OCEAN PARK, Aug. s.—By a ma
jority of 105 votes, consolidation With
Santa Monica was defeated today In
one of the wannest elections ever held
in this city. The vote stood 147 for
and 252 against. In the Venice dis
trict where the antis were the strong
est the vote was 184 to 31. In the
northern prectnet there was a tie vote,
on to 69 being the count.
When the result wan announced the
south end of tiie city went wild. Whis
tles were blown, cannon tired and Dens
rung. The partisans of the opposition
formed an Impromptu parade and
with hundreds ol pieces of red nr« ana
roman candles inarched along the |
ocean front to Pier avenue and back i
to the Venice dance pavilion, where
a Jollification meeting was held.
In the streets of Venice fireworks
spluttered and popped, horns tooted
and men, women and children cheered |
until they were hoarse.
Late in the evening a band was se- ,
cured and a large parade was hastily
formed thai marched to the home of
Abbot Klnney. The father o£ Venice
serenaded and cheered until he
came forth in his robe de nuit.
He stood shivering In the night
breezes until the crowd wearied ol
cheering, when he made a brief speech
of thanks and retreated.
Carries in Santa Monica
The vote on the consolidation carried
in Santa Monica by a majority of 172
votes, the result being 620 for and 44S
against the proposition. The vote was
lieht and while the election was hot,
there were a numb-r of surprises
sprung The consoltdationists have
the consolation of knowing that while
their victory was a barren one in tne
face of the returns of Ocean Park,
the carried their section of the beach
and made good.
One peculiarity of the election In
both cities was that while the liquor
interests of this city were lined up
for the measure, those of Ocean Park
were opposed to the movement. The
churches were against the consolida
tion in this city, some ministers com
ing out in their Sunday sermons
against it. The saloon element on
the north end hoped that if the merger
was effected it would effectually
quench a prohibition movement, while
these on the south end were afraid if
the merger took place that the prohi
bition faction on the north side would
be strong enough to restrict the sale
of liquor on the entire beach.
A F. Webster, president of the San
ta' Monica Bay chamber of commerce,
when asked this evening what he
thought about the result, said: "Money
of the breweries, well spent, defeated
us. We are not beaten yet, but will
reorganize and go to it again, and the
next time we will win. We made good
in this city and we will carry the
proposition in Ocean Park next time." I

Heat Causes Deaths in Chicago
CHICAGO, Aug. s.—The effect of the
latest spell of hot weather in Chicago
was seen In the official death record
for yesterday, the report containing
names of twenty-live Infants one year

distressing mortality.
