In many ways the game waa distinct in the annals of the Lop Angeles diamond. Twenty-six players were in action during its long existence, thirty hits were made by the combined forces; Carson, who pitched but two innins*, is charged with defeat; the captain-manager of each team was ordered off the field by the umpire; six different times the game appeared to be safely in the grasp of one team or the other; and last, but not least, Eugene McGreevy placed himself firmly with the inns by his prompt action whenever a player was inclined to crab at one of his decisions. It was a ball game to be remembered, for while it did not change any vital standing in league percentages, the action was so evenly distributed, and so rapid were the transfers of the long end of the score, that the fans were kept in their seats until the very last man had been put out in the final round. The Senators apparently bnttled things up for themselves in the second Inning, when they put two men over the counting place. Vernon came right bark and hit the bulUeye once, and from there until the eighth it was a see saw affair, with neither side being able to advance men clear around the cir cuit. Batfm, who had taken Nourse's placo tn the third act, wheji the latter dis played signs of weakening, was easy for the Villagers in the eighth, and tiogan's sparkling humor again became audible to the stands. Three hits and as many runs were, garnered by Vernon, and the fans looked on it as a gift from the Senators. However, Graham's visitors were not through fighting, for in their half of what would usually have been the last inning the Capitollsts pounced on Hitt and before the smoke had cleared away were once more in the lead with six tallies to their credit. Vernon, not to be outdone for gnmeness, came right nack in their half of the'same frame and tied things up again, two nits netting two runs. The next spasm went by with the Senators trying every foot of the way and get ting a man as far as third v lth but one gone, but there was no scoring. Then cairn- the blowoff. Carson, who, at first base scored Hensling, and had relieved Hitt at the beginning of thi tenth, lost all semblance of con trol. Bhtnn, the first man up. went ..in on a foul, but liurns and Perry, followed, were allowed first base on four balls each. Hast] let a rather loose pitch by hlni and the men moved up a peg, and while Danzig wa ing retired via the Burrell-Bra route Burn? romped home with what proved to be the winning run. The second Inning saw Sacran begin Its work. Boardman and I both copping singles off llitt and ail ing the third and s-econd cushions be fore the third man came to bat. Helster's roaring two-bugger put them both on Easy street, but the other btngle of the inning fell flat because ol a nipped in the bud attempt at a double steal, Helster being nailed at the plate. » Vernou went right back nt the. visitors, when Coy followed Roy Brashear's out with a double to cen ter. Jiurrell tore off a singlo that was long enough to allow Coy a chance at the final station, but Lindsays single did no good, as Burred, trying to get clear in on some poor coaching of Hogan's v>ag nailed good and hard by Si lesman. On the lirst ball pitched in the third round Hltt nailed a single and Nourse removed from the tow Bones Baum a chance. Pli nty ■■! action Btretched Itself from eighth Inning, when the real : began, Stovall and Manager Graham were rousted from the fl ilklng back to McGreevy, and several switches In the lineups were In oi ler.

This news was embodied In a telegram McCar ney sent to a friend of his here yester day, and a further bit of bait for Jeff to nibble at was contained in a sen tence stating: 40 per cent of the gross receipts would go to the biff boy in case he preferred to take a chance In stead of the lump sum. This news was flashed to Jeffries ! over the wireless to Catallna island, where the ex-premier heavy is fishing: with Tex Rlckard and Jack Kipper. A reply one way or the other is ex pected today, and by night McCarney should be able to show—provided Jeff accepts— he means real business and is not out after some cheap ad vertising- In view of stories making the rounds that Jeff is considering a return match with Johnson, the Philadelphia offer exactly fits in with conditions. If there is nothing in the "mental col lapse" and "dope" talk. Jeff should be able to dispose of Kaufman inside the six rounds which they are to battle, and his re-engageuient with Johnson I would prove a drawing card scarcely I less Important than the Fourth of July : mill at Reno. No doubts exist in the I minds of those who saw that bout 1 as to the almost unbelievable way in i which Jeff moved around, and if be : made pood with Kaufman, who has I been knocked out but once In his ca reer, the big boy would again have the 1 backing of the majority at his former I adherents. Should Kaufman make a I creditable showing, then all hope of a ! r"turn battle between the smoke and ! Jeff would be out of the question, as it would not draw enouch to pay train ing expenses for the principals. It look? like the ten round, no de clslon fights held here for many mdons j past will be the popular ticket up and j 1 down the state. Reports from Ban Francisco indicate the northern pro ! moters will trail in behind Managev ' MeCarey or the local rhib, and the short bouts, with no official verdict at their termination, will have their inning where twenty round events formerly were offered as drawing cards Seattle is also slated to blos som forth as a fight town of the short mill variety, and what has long been looked on ns the Mecca for mitt ar t Nts will descend to tha level of New York. Philadelphia and other eastern ' ' \ report on the local situation, pub lished in theso columns yesterday, caused the fans to discuss the many phases of boxing future, and on all sides the suggestion that Manager McCarey keep his bouts down to child's size until after the ■ reform wave haa gpenl itself was received as the proper thirfg to do in the clrcum ! stances. Liberal patronage for ten round bouts at Vernon is promised, ana the sport can go on uninterrupted, save there will be more science and less slugging interspersed into the action. The wise promoter of his day is sure I to pick out boya of skill rather than ; endurance and wallop, and McCarey Is no exception to this rule. As his ppen er nt Vernon. he has tentatively signed Pammy Kellar and Danny \Veb ster little fellows who are on the move all the time, but whose records show comparatively few knockouts to their credit. They are ,lust what the doctor prescribed in the present In- Btance. The strictest interpretation of tho state law could not call a match between them a prize fight, so no In terference by the EJureka solon can be contemplated. But McCarey may not have, cicar | ' sailing in securing Kellar's services, 1 unless he already has the little fellow j ! bottled UP with a contract. Jim Grif- ! I fin, the San Francisco promoter, is I after the Englishman for a bout with i Jimmy Carroll July 1:9 at Dreamland, and as McCarey expected to BtagQ his | go early in August the, dates sort of i conflict' But Mac is on the inside | track, having Kelhir right here at i Venice, so In all probability Qrifnn will I be left in the cold, bo far as Sammy | is ncerned. , , I The Carroll-Kellar bout is planned by Orlffln as a substitute for that be tween Frankle Burns of Oakland and 1., iv Powell, who were to have boxed for Griffin on the twenty-ninth. Powell demanded too much weight concession, and efforts to set some lightweight to I take his place were unavailing. Cyclone Johnny Thompson has come forth as his own fair press agent. That grand old fighter, champion of the applewoman class, has issued a four-page booklet from the Sycamore ; farm which tells how great Cyclone could be if he only had a chance. Thompson is surely some booster for H'l Johnny, but he's about the only one who can s<so the cycloneless Cy clone. CHICAGO CUBS SECURE KEENER FROM SPOKANE CHICAGO, July 20,—The Chicago Nations!
