San Francisco 3, I'ortland 2. GAMES TODAY Vernon-Saeramento at Chutes I'nrk. Lot Angeles-Oakland at San Fr«ncl»co. himl-San Francisco at Portland. The Angels dropped another chance to (hoot up nearer the top yesterday when Thorsen was accorded j>oor support and the Oaks took advantage of their opportunities to hunch a couple of lilts off a very stingy delivery. At that Berry's pels rould not have* changed their place In the league percentage, for San Francisco pulled the. Beavers don-n a peg and are now hut one game, shy of topping the column. How ever... the lllllonltes are capable of playing steadier ball than they have shown In >,helr last two performances, so they ma y be. expected to win the majority of games in the present series with Oakland. Hen llerry will he on the Job today, and his presence at the scene of conflict should lend courage to the Angels. Veraon took an easy game from (he Senators nt Doyle park, and now leads the Oaks for third place by a single point. Relative!), the standings are the same, hut a difference in the number of games played accounts for the separating margin. These are today's "ifs": Club— Win. Lose. Cluh— Win. Lose. Portland 349 .63!) Vernon 518 .309 San Francisco 344 .JtSS Oakland 51* .508 I,os Angeles 530 .523 Sacramento \.. .307 .358 Hap Hogan's Villagers led the vi<= itincr Sacramentans nut to Jack Doyle's pasture yesterday and threw the harpoon into them for a shutout, throe to nix. Tho game was not what might be classed as a thriller, for Vernon piled in two of its tallies before the fans were comfortably seated, and the ensuing innings, cave in one instance, were not productive of bullseyes. The third round saw Hogan's hirelings repeating th^ performance of the opening tict and ringing th^ bell, but aside from that hardly a safe swat was registered. "Walter Carlisle was the feature-maker in what otherwise was a rather tame contest In the third Inning Carlisle was forced to back clear up against the fence and leap high In the air to nab a swat from Shinn's club. Had the ball traveled a few inches higher it would have been registered as a home run, V.ut the way Carlisle handled it turned the play into the most brilliant fielding feat of the local season. Shinn also broke into the spotlight a bit by stopping Hogan's drive in the second round and robbing the veteran of what would have been his first safe swat In many moons. Aside from these plays. Carson's twirling and the way in which his team mates clouted the sphere in the first time at bat were the main instances to arouse enthusiasm at the Vernon lot. In the eighth inning Graham sent Nourse on the mound to replace Fitzgerald, but it was done more to relieve the twirler than because he had begun to weaken. Fltz was liberal only in the opening heat, and after that settled down and pitched real ball. Before the multitude had settled into its cushions at Doyle's place Sacra mento had overlooked a chance to score and Vernon had chased two men across the counter. Shinn led off for the Capitalists with a neat single to left and look second when Burns laid down his life to advance his compatriot. Perry's , (tort was from Hosp to Kitty Brashear, making it two down and Shinn on third. The elongated Danzig was called on to execute a safety with the club and get the runner home, but Lindsay relayed his drive over to first and retired the side. The Villagers came up for their half of thf round full of fight. Carlisle drove to Shinn, who, afti r doing a bit of juggling, shot the ball over to first in time to heat out the shifty Yernonite. Stovall picked out a soft one and drove it to center for two sacks, remaining at station two while Norman Brashear Bkied to Shinn. Hoy Brashear singled to left, but Stovall would have been nailed at the plate had not LaLonge muffed the relay home. Brashear went down to the keystone stop on the toss for the plate and Coy's single was long enough to send thi runner clear over for the second tally. Coy pinched second, but a little teamwork by Fitzgerald and Shinn In slowing- up Hosp's hot one and getting 11 over to first retired the side without further damage to the visitors. When Carlisle led oft for Vernon in | the third Inning every £an i n up all available lung i the little fielder for his grandstand catch in the opening half of the frame. Walter responded to this outburst by whanging a single out to the left pa - ture. He added to his laurels by l ing on t.i third when Sto rlflce j 1 him to onlj the middle stal I nil dashed :■ on Norman Brashear'fl long sacrifice fly.

Amateur Sports, Athletics GLEASON THINKS JEFF SHOULD TAKE A CHANCE Promoter States He Could Have Whipped Former Champion in Reno Battle CHICAGO. July 22.—That James J. | Jeffries may again enter the ring is the . belief of Sam Berger, his manager, and Jack Gleason, who, with Tex Rickard. staged the battle at Reno. The pro moter and manager arrived In Chicago yesterday from the Pacific coast. "I know that Jeffries feels the defeat very keenly,' said Gleason, "and I should not be surprised were his friends to persuade him to enter the ring again. As a matter of fact, Jef fries was a mental wreck when he en tered the ring against Johnson. I could have whipped him myself." Berger, who has been with Jeffries as much as anyone since the fighter's defeat, believes that Jeffries will be himself In a short time. "There is no good reason why Jef fries should not try to wipe out his defeat," said Berger. "My confident opinion is that he would whip Johnson | any day in the week. It was not a question of coming back when Jeffries stepped into the ring at Reno. Jef fries was 'all in' when he went into that fight. He was a nervous wreck." Gleason explained that before signing the light articles Jeffries wanted a clause put in which would make him tree to have a couple of fights before meeting Johnson. The promoters were willing, but as Johnson asked the same thing (hey feared possibly the colored champion would SJTOW reckless and either stumble into defeat or elso injure himself, so they decided to keep both out of the ring. Berger now thinks a real i»)ut before the i>ig fight would have put Jetties in far better trim than he was. CONLEY AND WALSH TO MEET IN NEW ORLEANS Jimmy Walsh is still 01) tin- Job.

WRIGHT Westerner Upsets Dope of Proph ets with Easy Victory Over Veteran TOUCHARD AND GARDNER LOSE Whitney and Bishop Victorious in Spectacular Match and Jump Into Finals BROOKLINE, Mass., July 22.— Maurice Mclaughlin.defeated Beals C. Wright, ex-champion of tho United States, in tho semi-final round of tho Longwood tournament this afternoon in one of tho greatest exhibitions of whirlwind tennis that the historical court of the world-famed Cricket club has ever Been. The westerner played unbeatable tennis after dropping tho llrst .set and outgeneraled and out played the veteran Wright. Both players realized at the start of the match that a victory would bo the result of fust tennis and shrewd pluy and began the match carefully, Mclaughlin showing his usual nerv ousness and being Inclined to net tho majority of his kills. Wright start,.! serving and annexed the llrst game in easy fashion, McLoughlin playing carefully and allowing the vet. r-an too many chances for the aces. Mc[,ough line took his own serve and the scoro ran evenly, with each player taklni; nts own service to four-all. Wright then won his own service and broko through Mclaughlin's for the But at 6-4. The second set began with Wright in the service position and the scoro alternating to flve-all. McLoughlin broke through the eleventh game with some fast angle work at the barrier and took the game from deuce. Tho westerner had an easy time In run ning out the set on his own serve, 7-.',. The .second set for McLoughlln did not greatly surprise the gallerios, but as the last year internationalist kept up the pace and met Wright at his own net game the "sure-thing" proph ets in the front rows began to ba anxious and when in tho thirteenth game McLoughlln pressed the scoro from deuce to vantage and finally an nexed Wright's own service, followlng this with a win from his own un returnablo initial driving, tho galler ies settled back in their seats with tho disappointment plainly depicted upon their faces, but the hope in their hearts that the greut court general would come In with a rally for the final sets. With a lf>ad of two sets to one Mo- Loughlin began the fourth set with tho winning determination, but coukl not break through the easterner's ■•rvlce until tin; ninth game, which ho won after a hard struggle and som» last interchanges of Volleys at the net th.it brought botli players round after round Of applause. Tho tenth gamo of the linul set was a walkaway for the western player, Wright making scarcely any defense and going to piecee In hla overhead play.
