Baseball, Racing, Boxing ONLY THREE SEALS GET TO FIRST BASE AND ANGELS SCORE SHUTOUT Nagle Holds League Leaders Down to Two Hits. Both by Eastley, and Allows Only One Base on Balis. While Angel Batters Touch Frisco Curve Artist for an Even Dozen Safe Bingles and Complete Circuit of Bases Four Times—This Victory Gives Los Angeles Team Four in Five Games Played. Present Series Ends Today with Double Header JAY DAVIDSON High-class baseball was dished up for the ::""'"> faithful who wont out to Chutes park yesterday afternoon to see the Angela trim the Seals in the fifth game of the present series. nnd the brilliant fielding on both Bidet, the classy twirling of Nagle and the terrific clouting- of the home boys amply rewarded them. The Angela made it four in Bye by whitewashing the league leaders, 4 to 0. Baatley was the only Seal who could got a hit Off Nagle and lie sot two, both of them tWO-baggers to the left field fence. His team mates could not help him pet any further toward home, however, and he died on the midway cushion both times. The Seals never were dangerous, only three of them ever getting to first base and only twenty-nine batters faced the mighty curve artist in the nine Innings. Nagle held them absolutely help less all the time, and never showed the slightest signs of weakening. Up to the sixth inning Nagle held them hit less and gave only one base on balls. Kastley got a two-bagger in the sixth and repeated in the ninth. Tennant, Who walked in the second Inning, was the only other Seal who ever got to first. The Angels started scoring in the opening inning, when Daley, first man up, was hit by n pitched ball. He went to second on Bernard"s sacrifice and was run down between third and home when Howard singled to left. Howard went to second while Daley was being run down and scored when Dillon bounced one over McArdle's head to short left. After this round scoring was discontinued until the sixth, when the Angels chased another man over the rubber. Dillon beat out a hit to short, went to second on Murphy's sacrifice to Tennant and scored when Delmas smashed a Texas leaguer over short. The other two runs were registered In the seventh. Nagle, first batter up, rattled the left field boards for two bases and beat Vitt to the bagg when Daley bunted to the third baseman, both runners being safe. All the Inflelders ran over to third base to argue with Van Haltren over his close decision and Daley sneaked down to the uncovered middle bag. Bernard put a Texas leaguer back of second base and Nngle got home. Daley going to third. Howard Hew to center and Daley beat the throw home. The Angels might have been scoring yet had not Dillon, who got his base by being hit, and Murphy been doubled up on Murphy's tap tn short. It was a fast game and a beautiful exhibition all the way and the fans worked up a lot of enthusiasm during the nine innings when the Angela made a hit or run and when either side pulled off any brilliant plays, of which there were many. Although both teams played errorless ball, the Angels played rings around the Frisco bunch and clearly outshone them in the snappy, fast fielding. Delmas, Howard nnd Roth pulled off some sen sational fielding stunts, while all the outfielders had their share of chances on long fly balls and accepted all of them. The series will be wound up today with a double header. As usual, the morning game will be played at Doyle park, Vernon, starting at 10:30 o'clock, while the afternoon game will be played at the Chutes, beginning at 2:3n o'clock. Dillon has saved up Tozer and Castleton for this double head er and will be greatly disappointed if the Angels do not grab off both of them. With only three games separating the first and fifth team in the pennant race, every game counts now and Dillon is nnxious to take his Angel band north one week from tonight In first place. It looks like he would he able to do it, too.

GAYNOR REFUSES TO BE AUTOCRAT Declares He Will Act Only Where He Has Authority Regard ing Fight Pictures DECLINES TO BE BLUFFED Asserts That Abuse of Executive Power Is More to Be Dreaded Than Other Vices [Associated Press] NEW YORK. July 9.—Mayor Gaynor flatly stated today that he would not iisr arbitrary power to suppress tin 1 ex hibition of the Jeffries-Johnson light pictures. In a letter to Rev. O. K. Mil ler of the international reform bureau Mayor Gaynor wrote: "If It lay in my power to say whether the pictures should be exhibited, it would not take me long to decide it. I do not see how it can do anyone any good to look at them. But will you be so good as to remember that ours is a government of laws and not of men Will you please get that well Into your head? 1 am not able to do as I like as mayor. 1 must take the law just a.s it is, and you may be ab solutely certain that 1 shall not take the law into my own hand*. "You say you are glad to see that the mayors of many cities have 'ordered' that these pictures shall not be ex hibited. Indeed? "Who set them up as autocrats? If there be some valid law giving any mayor such power, then he can exercise it; otherwise, not. "The growing exercise of arbitrary power in this country by those put in office would be far more dangerous and is far more to be dreaded than certain other vices which we all wish to min imize or be rid of." WASHINGTON. July 9.—At the or der of Col. Gerrard, commander of Fort Myer, cavalrymen last night guarded the Alexandria county Jail on Fort Myer Heights, where early yes terday soldiers made an attempt to lynch Robert Jackson, a negro con lined there, who had stabbed Private Scott of battery D, Third Held artillery, In an argument resulting from the Jeffries-Johnson fight.

NEW YORK, July 9.—Before election of officers, preparatory to its final busi ness session today, the Young People's Christian Temperance union of the Univeraalißt church, In annual conven tion here, put into a formal resolution the sentiments against the exhibition of the Jeffries-Johnson fight picture!.

BAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio, July 9.— Mayor Samuel Crawford, in announc ing he would not prohibit the fight pic tures here, declared there was no moro harm in showing the tight pictures than in presenting a wild west show. •This agitation ovtr the country is simply advertising the pictures." he Bald " -If people remain.'d quiet the public soon would forget the fight."

Ping Hodie, the terror, could not get to first base to save his life, while Lewis, Berry and McArdle were as helpless as any of the others. Eastley was the only Seal whp could get a hit off the Judge, and his brace of two-baggers did not amount to anything more than to keep Nagle from pitching a no-hit, no-ri:n game. Walter is In his best form now and opposing batters have a fut chance of doing anything serious with his de livery. Dillon certainly has a daisy pitching staff now, with Thorsen, Nagle, Tozer and Castleton taking reg ular turns and winning nearly every game they pitch. Then there is Criger, Delhi and Klein ready to take a turn any time they are needed. Tozer and Castleton should win their games from the Seals today and make it six in seven for the Anjrels. Barring that awful (Hike last Thursday, the Angels should have made a clean sweep of the series. In that game the Seals came from behind and ovei-came a 8 to 1 score against them and won out. Rotten Melding caused it, and it would be impossible for the Angels to m;ik. as many errors in one inning again this season unless they really tried to see how poorly they could play. The An gels go north again after the series next week with Vernon, and Dillon wants to take his boys on the road in first place. Ry grabbing the double header today, the Angels have a chance of overtaking all other rivals, and if they keep on playing as they are now it is a cinch that they will go away in first place. Johnny Mooney, manager of fighters, fight promoter and baseball scout, stopped over in Los Angeles yesterday on his 1 way back to Boston from the big tight. . Johnny brought Honey Mel lody to Los Angeles while he was champion and for a long time had a big string of scrappers under his man agerial wing. He Is matchmaker for the Armory club at Boston, but the season Is closed there until September, when the fight game will open up again. Charles Van Loan dropped off the Owl yesterday morning to pass a month with old friends in Los Angeles. Van is sporting editor of the New York Journal, one of the Hearst pa pers, and came west to "do" the big fight at Reno. While out this way he decided upon taking his summer vacation here and says ft Is soothing to the mind and eye to be back in this tropical clime once more. . Van took in the game yesterday and said that Hen Berry should take his Angel band on a tour of the east this fall, pre dicting that the boys would make all big league rivals play some ball to beat them. After seeing Delmas play yesterday and every other day this season, it is difficult to believe that such a classy shortstop could ever make an error. He covered miles of territory, accept ing many extremely difficult chances, and handling all of them without a i luihble.. Del Is also getting back his I batting eye, which means that he will drive home many runs for the Angels before the season is ended. Del had one bad day during this series, but lie more than makes up for it nine days in ten. Jack Johnson says he Is willing to give Jeff a return match Labor day If the big boy wants it, but expresses AMERICAN LEAGUE NEW YORK, July 9.—New York and Chicago broke even In today's double header, 5 to 2 and 3 to 2.

The big follow sure wants n re turn match and is confident of re versing the verdict. Otherwise he would not think of trying it over. It would be a. great drawing card, too, as everybody who saw the fight .Inly I would try to be back there, knowing that Jeff did not put up any fight at all and knowing; further that he could give Johnson a tough fight if he could go into the ring in as good con dition as he was then, minus his dope or nervousness. Those who wen' a 1 ringside that day would need no urging to make them go back Ijabor day. Jack Doyle will put on a boxing show in his open air gymnasium this nfter noon to entertain those who drop out that way to the baseball games among the sald-lottors. Professor Kiddo Cleveland will be master of ceremonies and several bouts will be staged. Bobby Oolnier and Sid Totton, who went to Reno to see the big fight, dirt not return on the T-os Angeles special, deciding to continue their vacation a week or two. Totton went to Krisoo, while Ctolmer met an old friend. Pete Fay. and went home with him some where up in the sagebrush. Both these boys will be back home within a week or ten days. Happy Hognn and his Village Cut ups will start home tonight ami will open up with the Angels next Wednes day for a seven-game series. Both teams are tied up for fourth place now, and both have a strong following here, so the. series between them is bound to be a biff thln.sr for the box office. Oakland goes to Portland and Sacramento goes to Frisco. This switch around should benefit the An gels, as the Berry Blossoms room to bo playing a much better game right now than the Villagers, while Oakland and Portland shovild hold each other nt a standstill and Sacramento and Frisco will be unable to make much headway during their series. Fifteen victories in nineteen cames Is a record that Is hard to beat. It is quite Interesting to sit down and read some of the letters that the cranks are sending to Jeffries, They go to the Spring street caff, and Jack Kipper peruses them, sending the Im portant ones to the bit? fellow and flll- Ing the waste basket with others. They are from beggars, real estate agenets, ministers and cranks. One minister wrote to Jeff to make the sug gestion that If he would present his 11-gotten (?) sains to charity the world would overlook his transgres sion of decency (?) in going Into tho prize ring to fight. Another wanted him to do penance by giving up $1000 to help a building fund, while several hundred real estate agents were anxious to sympathise With him. say- Ing that they know he was the better man, but unlucky, and Incidentally warning him against unwise Invest ments, winding up with a quiet tip to put his money In Arizona sand dunes, "r buy ur> a big tract and sub divide it, adding that the writer, who ever It might be, would he willing to undertake the management of the fund and the property for a small considera tion. All of them, regardless of call ing, want to help the big fellow spend his money, all right, and gauge their sympathy by the strength of that de sire. Jeff never sees any of this kind of letters.
