Baseball, Racing, Boxing HENSLING KEEPS UP GOOD WORK BY ONCE MORE WHITEWASHING PORTLAND Beavers, in the Midst of Batting Slump, Again Fail to Register One Run Against Vernon, Making 27 Consecutive Innings in Which I They Have Failed to Score-Towheaded Twirler Wins in Pitching Duel with Mighty Krapp by Heady Curving and Brilliant Fielding Support-Noodles Hogan Shows , McCredie How to Win, Although Unable to Hit Portland and Vernon will play the usual double-header today, the morning game being played at Vernon park, starting at 10:30 o'clock, and the afternoon game being played at the Chutes, start ing at 2:30 o'clock. Roy Hitt, who pitched the one-hit, no-run game against this bunch last Thursday, probably will twirl the morning game, and Carson will do the firing this afternoon. Uregg and Steen probably will pitch for the Beavers. JAY DAVIDSON Vernon and Portland played another "love" game yesterday afternoon, the Villagers being on the long end of the 4 to 0 score. This whitewashing business seems to have become habitual with the two teams, as every game played this series has been a shutout victory for the winning club, and It is gratifying to say that Vernon has won three in four of them. The game yesterday was the eighth shutout exhibition between these teams, and Vernon has won six of them. Hensling was on the mound for the Villagers, and the towliead was absolutely invincible, although Krapp pitched tighter ball. Hensling was given brilliant support in the field and at bat, while Krapp got ragged fielding support and the batters who once were famous for their slugging propensities seemed to have become victims of a lost art. Whenever it seemed possible for Portland to score, the smart Alecks on the Vernon payroll pulled off something calculated to enthuse the fans and give the Beavers a grouch. When hits were required to send runners over the plate Hensling became as stingy as a miser and no runs were registered. Noodles Hogan was the bright and particular seinttllant of the game, despite the brilliant pitching of Hens ling. It was Noodles who broke Up the game with his old head and handy stick, as he was responsible for three of the four runs scored by Vernon. Hogan gave a high class ex hibition of how to bat for the best inte rests of the club, instead of trying to fatten bis own batting average, preferring to bo known as a run-getter than as a sticker. Scoring started in the second inning, after Krapp had gotten on his stride and seemed destined to make a strikeout record. After Roy Brash ear had flown to left, Coy drew a ticket to first, Burrell singling over second and Lindsay filled the bases with a bingle through short. Noodles Hogan and his Little Giant walked to the plate and began to tease Krapp and the Beavers' infield. With two strikes and one hall called he laid down the prettiest bunt one m Ight ask for. Krapp and Fisher col lided in their efforts at fielding it and Krapp got the ball, only to toss It over Fisher's head to the grandstan d, Coy and Burrell scoring. In the fourth Hogan again was " there with the necessary brainy stick work. Burrell singled to left and went to third when Krapp threw the ball over Rapps' head to catch him at first. Lindsay was out, Casey to Rapps, and then Hogan was called to bat After a little more kidding, until Krapp did not know whether he was pitching or sitting on the bench, Noodles pulled off another bunt, just as pretty as the first one, and Bur rcll landed at home before Krapp co uld field it. Hogan was thrown out at first, but he had accomplished hi s purpose. The fourth and last run of the game was put over In the eighth, just to keep Krapp from getting swelled v p on his pitching. Stovall, who had been unable to get a bit, was desperate and managed to get hit by a pitched ball. He got his base, but was very sore about the leg that was Walloped. Kitty Brashoar was an easy infield out and Stovall stole second. Carlisle walked and Roy Braahear forced Carlisle at second and Stovall ■cored on the out. This result was more displeasing to the Beavers because it made twenty-seven straight Innings that they had failed to get home once. Hitt, Wlllett and Hensling refused to give them a single run in the three games they pitched because Portland got so nasty about the way they treated Carson opening day.

Hap was responsible for three Of the four runs scored by Vernon, and his perfect pegging also contributed some to preventing the Beavers from making a winning rally. While Hap never has posed as a heavy sticker, preferring to work for the success of the team to making an Individual bat ting record, it was his brainy work with the willow that won the game yesterday. When the bases were over flowing with Villagers in the second inning. Hap realized that It was an opportunity to make a score, which might win the game. He went to bat, teased Krapp into a frenzy, and then laid down a bunt in front of the plate that so rattled both Krapp and Fisher —because of tic unexpected perfection with which the trick was pulled off— that two runners registered before the frustrated ones could hold onto th? ball. Again in the fourth he pulled off the same Identical play, which it would seem might have grown old to the Beaver battery by that time, and Sto vall was squeezed over the plate. His perfect peg to second In the third in ning retired Speas mid taught the Beavers, when they were fortunate enough to get on first, to hug the bag until advanced by a batter. Happy can smell an attempted squeeze halt an hour before it is attempted on him, and lv knows how to handle them. In Wednesday's game he caught a runner at the plate by signaling for a waste hall, catching tile runner by a city block. It is the old noodle with him, and there is not a catcher or diamond general on the coast who is in his class, even if he can't hit all the time or peg perfectly to the bags every time he tries. Although Vernon did not go to the top of the Coast league yesterday, be cause Los Angeles and Sacramento fell down In the finish of their games with Frisco and Oakland, the old girl has a tine chance to get there today, and it will be freakish luck If she fails. Oakland plays only one game, and, win or lose, cannot stay ahead of Vernon If our boys can take the double-header today, which seems very probable. Ban Francisco must then beat the Angels twice to stay with us. With Hltt and Carson almost sure to pitch the double header today, it looks like a copper riveted cinch that Vernon will grab off both games, if she doe*, hoopee, who opened the gate? Paul Drowning, the score card man nt the local ball games, lias opened his heart and proposes to give a dish ot ice cream to every woman who buys a program from him toay. He will not have the cream ready to serve, but he will give a ticket on a local Ice cream factory for one mellifluous dish o fthe frozen happiness, and just to make it all the more tempting he has arranged with a dealer opposite the park entrance to furnish the ream, so the order i an be cashed right after the game. ■■~i. Eddie Mali is the real Vernon mas cot. The team started its slump as Boon as he 1,1,11 attending: the games three weeks ago and resumed the winning streak as soon Us he found his way back to the park. He has seen the team win nearly every game that it has annexed locs and has not seen it lose half a dozen games this season. Tom Stevens was out yesterday and actually show some pleasure at the victory of the Villagers. Ho said that Hen Berry had wired that he could not be present and had appointed him, Tom, as .his personal representative to be In on the slaughter of the Inno cents. Tom It going cast soon for an extended tour of tin big league circuits in search of promising players.

A college pitcher bearing the trade mark of Christopher Mathewson also has been tipped off to Tom as a likely youngster to be tried on the Angelic pitching staff. Col. Jim Brooks sug gested to him yesterday that while he was scouting around tho east it would be well to look out for a couple of umpires to replace Finney and Hilde brand, both of whom are very unpop ular with the colonel. Somebody said It was a shame to ask Hensling to pitch yesterday, as he was a very sick man, but when the game got to the'warming point some wag who overheard the remark suggested that it was a good thing Hensling was sick, because he might pitch a no-hit, no-run game and break the strike-out record. Hensling did not pitch like a sick man. Hensling has a funny jump ball that the average batter cannot figure out. After Smith fanned yesterday he ex ! plained his hard luck by saying that I the ball was bewitched, as It dodged every time he struck at it. It sure Is some sidestepper and beats all the spit balls ever exhibited here. Along about the eighth inning a cou ple of kids got into an argument over in the bleacher section reserved for them every Saturday afternoon and went down behind the stand to fight it out. The scrap caused a big commo tion among the kids and attracted some of the older heads and the ball players to the fence. Joe Mason, with a right idea and to give vent to his dislike, yelled: "Telegraph the gover nor quick that there's a fight over the back of the bleachers, so he can order out the troops." Walter McCredle is dickering with Hogan for the purchase !of Martinke, who wa staken out of right field a few days ago for a rest. McCredle is of the opinion thai Martlnke Is a better hitter than Smith and it Is said that if he can get the Vernon' fielder Mc- Credle will get out of the game and run the team from the bench, He Is weary of playing. It is a big drop from first to fourth place in tho Coast league pennant chase, but that is what happened to Portland yesterday. The Beavers act ed like they were tied to a post when Oakland, San Francisco and Vernon passed them. It shows what a close race is resulting in the pennant chase when one game can make such a sweeping change. Custleton, the twlrler Dillon got from Clnclnnatal, made his debut yesterday with the Angels and pitched a remark able game for a loser. Ho allowed only four hits and struck out ten Seals, but was beaten because the Angel batters could not bunch their hits as did the Seals. He and Kline have made good, although neither has won a game for the Angels. Luck cannot break that way all tin time. Paeky McFarland got something, af ter all, for his trip to England. By whipping Goldstein last night he be came the English welter champion and this probably will- mark the passing of McFarland as a lightweight. As there is no welterweight champion of the world now Paeky can lay claim to it and it looks like he is good enough to defend his claim. George Hancock Is a persevering as well as an enterprising cuss. When his fight special to Frisco was knocked into a cocked hat he got busy and re arranged it so thai it will run through to Reno, or Ely or Goldfleld, wherever the fight may be held, and will offer sleeping accommodations and a quick return homo that others cannot get by going on the regular trains. piro Klein's decision In refusing to permit him to take his base when hit by a pltqhed ball.

[Associated Press] SAN FRANCISCO, June 18.—"On to Reno!" is the cry of the fight brigade. Convinced by the "postponement" to day of the Kaufman-Langford match that San Francisco definitely has been eliminated as a possible scene of the Jeffries-Johnson fight, the positive an nouncement is expected tomorrow that "the battle of the century" should be fought In Nevada. Tomorrow night at Reno Rickard will receive bids for the big contest from committees representing the rival cities of Reno, Ooldfleld and Ely. The city offering the most substantial financial Inducements, he says, will secure the match and the winner will be immediately announced. It Is gen erally understood, however, that Reno will be the choice. The laws of Nevada do not prohibit glove contests, and no serious obstacle to the staging of the great battle ln that state is anticipated. After his turbulent experiences of the last few days, a great calm appears to have settled over Klckard and, breathing freely once more, he is In clined to Jest about his troubles. ( "I think Aye are getting this cham pionship into a safe pent at last," he told the newspaper men tonight, and he smiled grimly over ills pun. Both Jeffries and Johnson are awaiting the word to move. Prepara tions to break camp have been com pleted, and Monday morning the exodus of fighters and trainers from Ben Lo mond and San Francisco is expected to begin. Tentative arrangements for training quarters at Reno already have been made fur both Jeffries and John son. The capitulation today of Louis Blot, promoter of the Langford-Kaufman contest,,as a result of Governor Gil lett'S militant measures to prevent the fight, has ended a stressful situation. "Blot's rebellion," though short lived, was fraught with exciting possibili ties, involving tlie calling out of the militia: but, despite the promoter's open defiance of the state's chief ex ecutive, no serious importance has been attached to his war-like declarations, and his "backdown" occasioned little surprise, '©¥* A big crowd surrounded Blot's arena this afternoon, curious to witness the "test id' strength" between Blot ann the authorities. Mounted police threaded paths among tho throngs in the street, and a special detail of pa trolmen managed to keep the side walks clear. Blot stood at the entrance of the arena and greeted Adjutant General Lauck and Chief of Police Martin when they motored UP to see what was go ing on. Neither Kaufman nor Lang ford appeared, however, and finally the crowd melted away. Blot persists in Ids assertion that the contest lias been merely postponed un til next Saturday in order to stage a minor boxing event against the hold ing of which he hopes the governor will take action so that a test case can be put up to the courts. Sputtcrlngs of the controversy be tween the governor and the local au thorities continue to attract attention. Acting Mayor A. J. Kelly Issued a signed statement this afternoon pro testing against the "threat of the gov ernor to send troops into this peaceful community" to prevent Blot's contest if the city officials refused to take ac tion, y GILLETT PLACES BLAME ON LOCAL AUTHORITIES SACRAMENTO, June IS.— Feeling that his reasons for interfering with the Kauffman-Langford fight have been generally misconstrued and mis understood, Governor Gillett, repeating almost word for word the statement which he made to the press yesterday, issued today the following official state ment: '''___._,"'?' "I notice that District Attorney Flck ert, in his reported Interview, complains about stopping the fight at this late hour, and others too are making the same criticism. In reply to all of these complaints, 1 wish to say that the press of this country has not reported me correctly. For Instance, one of the Chicago papers published an interview with me which never took place, where in I was made to say that the fight would be a big thing for Han Fran cisco- that it would cause many peo ple to go there and spend much money. In this way I have, in one sense. been made wrongfully an advocate of that in which I don't believe.

June IS.—The most enterprising city of Southern Ne vada has made a hid for the Jeffries- Johnson fight in the offer of the Las Vegas Athletic association, headed by Harry Beale, Al James, Charles O'Neill and others. Tho telegram to Rlckard and Gleason of San Francisco reads: "Las Vegas will meet all requirements. Wire terms.".-. •..*■.- So far as known this offer exceeds all others, as the promoters arc understood not to have demanded a bonus outside the gate receipts. Las Vegas has many points to recommend it, with little or no opposition, besides an 1 elevation which is comparable to the training quarters of the fighters. It ls believed the Athletic club has the backing of the Salt Lake Railroad company and First State bunk of Las Vegas. ,.*,>/'; CLAIMS FIGHT SITUATION UP TO CITY AUTHORITIES The fight question does not seem to worry District Attorney Fredericks, for When he was asked yesterday if he had received a communication from Governor Gillett requesting that he stop fistic encounters in this city he said: "I have received no communication from the governor and don't wish to discuss the light question. The mayor, city council and chief of police are run ning this city, and as the fights here occur under the city ordinance they are the ones to Interview."

Junction come within the statute exempting boxing bouts from the application of the prohibition against prise fighting, MeCarey holds that since all bouts are limited in the maximum to ten rounds that no decision Is rendered and that at all times the police of the city arc in absolute and supreme con trol, with authority to stop any bout at any time, the affairs cannot he dubbed I>rizo fights. He Is more certain of non-llablllty In staging the Attoll- Mornn bout than in others because the world knows It Is to be the highest type of scientific boxing. Instead of the average mauling bees, that Is to be staged. There is no purse for the boys to light for and every element,, of a prizefight has been eliminated. In bis talk. MeCarey said that be al ways had favored tho shorter bouts, ■ hut that competition bad forced him to get out of that class and Stage the longer ones nt Vernon. Some of the latter day fighters will not talk of any thing less than twenty-live or forty five rounds, so It forced Mci'arey to put on those extended scraps In order to furnish his patrons with the enter tainment and the classy lighters they Want.,;. Th,. return to the shorter limit he believes will make better sport and make It just as popular as It ever was, While at the same time It will en able him to keep the sport alive and • within the requirements of the law. It was quite I big surprise to local fans to learn that the governor had said that he would force the discon tinuance of the bouts at Naud Junction, owing to the fact that these bouts have been believed to be within the law re lating to boxing contests, and it Is still believed that when the governor learns of the restrictions placed upon the sport here and the strict compliance with the law and the ordinance by the promoter and the boxers he will not be so inclined to interfere, In fact. It is quite probable that Coffroth, Blot, Hes ter and other Frisco promoters may be forced to copy after the MeCarey plan of staging ten-round bouts and that this will be the accepted limit all over tlie state in future, with the same re strictions placed upon the bouts as regards the decision, the attending physicians and the police control as Obtains here. The Los Angeles way Is famed In other lines, It may becomq equally famous in the boxing line. t CASTLETON FANS TEN AND YET LOSES GAME SAN FRANCISCO, June Heavy sticking, in which the two star per formers, Bodle and Williams, played an active part, won a tight game for San Francisco today.
