'With two men on the pillows the mighty Norman clouted the leather for a tWO-sacker that all but bumped the boards off the Chutes tenter field palisade. This was right after James the Whale, with unusual parsimonious intent, had allowed the Villagers but three hits and a single run, While his own mates had hooked Wlllett for a brace of talUes and a trio of fafe swats. """The game was not much of an excitement producer save in spots, for both Wlllett and 'Whalen refused to be caJoldcT into allowing the batsmen to take liberties with their offerings. In the first session Sacramento chased a man clear around the pillows anil in the third frame another Senator completed the circuit, the while Vernon drawing nothing but empties. Business was proceeding at a nice gait for Mister Whalen until the fatal eighth. The fans were already putting on their coats and the fanesses were drawing thoir gloves up to the buttoning point when Vernon broke loose. Brown, who came to bat after Lindsay had been declared out on his foul to Boardman, was presented with first base because the Whale could not locate the plate. Willett sacrificed him a peg, and with two in the cooler it looked its though Whalen was going to get away with something. j4,. ,]j ( ] NOT. Carlisle drew four wide ones and Smith singled to left, chasing Brown In with the first break in the Villagers' long line of goose eggs. One run was needed to tie thinsd up, two wore on the pillows, and when two Btrikea and only one ball was called on Kitty Brashear the case looked hope less from a local point of view. But Kitty was then', and the single shot at the li hi d lefi was sufficient. CRACK! and the fans rose to their !'• ■ i to watch Helster backing oft' toward the deep center fleld IV-nce to take Brash ear's swat on the rebound. By the time the ball was bark in safe hands Kitty was hugging third base and Smith had followed Carlisle home with the run tli.it put Vernon one to the good. Previous to the fireworks it looked! mighty sweet for Sacramento's chances at taking two In i line. Shinn, first man up at the opening of the initial Inning, beat an Infield hit out to first an ,l j, |y bettered his standing with Mana ham by purloining second. When Burns was asked to resign, Willett to first ba«e. Shinn spread himself to reach the far cornel of the diamond, and from there the trip home was easy when Perry | out a binglc. ]n the second round it looked like more ai tion for the bellboy taking care of the Senators' count. Briggs and Helster both world d WHli it for tickets to the Initial station and each nioved up a pep on LaLonge'a martyr dom. Jlmma da Whale came to bat tried to squeeze Brigga home. The r caught the ulgnal all right, but James failed to catch the ball with hla bat, the result being that Briggs was captured on the line between third and home. The Capitalists did better In the third spasm, however, for Whalen took his life In his hands .ml stepped In ii tof it pitched ball.

HERALD SPORTING PAGE FRANK HOLBORCW, SPEEDY LOCAL BOY TO RACE THIS EVE POWERS DECIDE AGAINST SANTA ANA BALL CLUB Minor Leaguers Protected After Application Is Granted, Is Commission Ruling CINCINNATI, July 21.—The National baseball commission in establishing the title of the Washington American league club t o Player Heinrlchs of the Santa Ana., Cal., club and rejecting the claim of that club today of draft money established a precedent. Early this year the Panta Ana club had ap plied for protection under the National commission, and while its case was pending the "Washington club signed Heinrichs. The Santa Ana club's con tention was that its protection should begin from the date of application. In rejecting this claim the commis slon held that protection begins only at the time the application is granted and also that it is unfair to semi-pro fessional players to make them observe the provisions of the National agree ment when the club with which they have been playing applies for protec tion without consent of the players. The commission says it would hold that in cases of this kind when pro tection is granted to a new club, that the i.layers will have to be resigned to tli.- National association or major league contracts and that unless they r.f their own accord they cannot Id by th.-> dub with whom they formerly played as free agents.

CLASSY PADDLERS TO MEET TONIGHT Freeth and Holborow Will Oppose Each Other in Swimming Tourney at Bimini MEN HAVE LARGE FOLLOWING Aquatic Enthusiasts of Southland Interested in Outcome of Professional Test The first of a scries of swimming tournaments will be held at the Bimini batha tonight and one of the best pro grama the aquatic fans have been pre sented in some time lias been billed for occasion. The Bimlni baths have come under the management of Claude. Bra il' n, one of the leading gymnasium in structors of the coast and a leading exponent of the watery art, and the swimming meets have been planned by htm iif order to arouse an Increased interest in the sport and produce more of the i lass nf. champion swimmers which the Southern California llelds now boast.

Ho hay been a life guard at the Re dondo Beach bath house for several years and was lately awarded a medal valued at $150 by congress for rescu ing nine Japanese from a wrecked fishing smack off Venice. There are only two medals of the kind on the Pacitic coast and only twelve have been issued, so Freeth is justly proud of the token.

Frank Holborow is well known around local Bwimmlng camps and has succeeded in annexing all the, coast records in the shorter dashes. In the fifty and hundred swims Holborow has equaled the world's records made by C. M. Daniels last year, 25 1-5 se.c omls for the short dash and 56 second! for the century.

Amateur Sports, Athletics JEFF REFUSES TO NIBBLE BIG BAIT Former Champion Fails to Reply to $20-000 Offer of Eastern Promoter MESSAGE MAY HAVE FAILED Possibilities Are That Big Boy Did Not Receive Wireless Containing Proffer . LOST, STRAYED ni: STOLEN—ONR big boy answering to tho name of Jeffries. Last seen off the fishinp; banks of Oatallna. Finder please notify Billy McCarney of Philadelphia and loeeive thanks. Jim Jeffries lias made no reply to the message sent via wireless Wednes day night to Catalina, telling the former champion that Billy McCarney of Philadelphia was ready and willing to give him $20,000 if he would oppose Al Kaufmann In a six-round, no declslon bout at the Quaker city Labor day. The offer was forwarded to Cata lina by one of Jeff's close friends here, and it is thought If he received it the boilermaker would have answered one way or the other. Jeffries Is so wrapped up in pursuing the battling tuna over the ocean near Catallna that he may not have come ashore at all Wednesday. Be is ac companied by Tex Rtckard and Jack Kipper, and it is among the possibili ties that tho trio chartered a launch and are making an extended cruise along- the Channel islands. If this is the case a reply to the McCarney offer may be expected today, or tomorrow at latest, for Jeff and his friends will bo back on the mainland again on the Saturday afternoon boat. McCarney is sin: ere in his offer to Jeffries, and sent further telegrams to a friend here yesterday in which he reiterated his statement of wishing to c the former champion. Tho Herald now corrects the report making the sum tendered Jeffries $50,000 In- Btead of the J^'o,ooo which Is really the amount. If Jeffries plans another shot at Johnson and mentis to accept the Phila delphia coin, he will tie forced to start tralnln.tr within a month. Labor day is not very distant, and the former cham pion would need a little time in which to acclimate himself. Ponding action of the city council, Manager McCarey win muke no move toward definitely signing a ficrht for tho local fans. The Pacific Athletic club's chief is not worrying over efforts of San Franciscans to -take Sammy Kellar away from him, for it is thought the English bantam will stay here and face Danny Webster In a ton-round bout, whether at Naud Junction or Vernon. Kellar is staying at Venice and doinjr light training stunts all the time, so a few days' announcement will be sufficient for him to get In real fighting shape. • • • Abe Attell is among those present at Venice these days, the little champion having run down from San Francisco after he heard the lid was on at Seattle and his contemplated match with Mc- Veigh was oIT. Attell Is hopeful for the future of the game in California and e'xpecta to get on before McC.irey's club after things shape themselves. Jim Griffin, the Ban Francisco pro moter who has been having- such a hard time securing an attraction to flil his July boxing permit, made Abe an offer, and told him to select his own victim. Attell, through Hen Ballg, re fused to even look ai Griffin's contract unless a guarantee clause were; at tached, and when the promoter failed to consider such a thing the feather weight champion decided not to tarry. Bill Lang;, the Australian heavy weight, le much in the limelight these, days, because of Hugh Mclntosh's boosting of his stock, and also for the reason that he "ill meet Ketchel in a ten-round bout before the New York Fairmount club .early next month. Many see in Molntosh b talk regarding Lang's ability a pointing toward a meeting with Johnson, but foxy Hugh is only pulling for himself. Lang came to tiiis country in the Australian pro moter's care, ho it is only natural such a pood press agent as Molntosh baa demonstrated himself to be should do a little boosting for his protege, News from Vancouver la thai Tommy Burns la training there for his berth on a Canadian lacrosse team which will soon play for the Dominion cham pionship. Burns was formerly a star at Toronto, and his presence on the coasl team will strengthen jts chances. ELMER REIGER TRANSFERED ST.
