With the two leaders alternating for honors and the Angels showing poor form,
Vernon and Oakland are again coming within balling dl.tance of the pennant. Each
team ha» been playing grand ball this series, the Oaks banding Ilerry's pets a short

Milter Hunt of Sa to came to crief at Chutea park resterday after
r.onn when Hap Hogan's warriors selected his choicest offerings and pelted
thf-m for four clean swats, netting a like number of runs. H ter Hunt
wm removi I from the mound and Nourse given the job of rolling pills for
Graham. With Nourse's advent In the box things quieted down, and with the
. v eption ot one run by Sacramento in the fourth frame, went by tallylesa ami
all but httless.
The Villagers broke to one of their flying gtarts, and the late comers failed
tn observe the action in thi hich was a decidedly busy pi i
for the home boys. When the smoke had lifted Graham and his followers were
ready tn i the n -i i ; the contest went by without much effort on either
■lde, save for b four-sacker bj Perry.
Carlisle led off in Vernon'a hist time at bai by missing the trii of
dished vi' i" him by Hum. Stovall did better with his swings and slapped
dingle to center, kitty Brashear clouted a high one and went to station
one, Stovall landing on third through the effort. Brother Roy helped the family
batting averagi by slapping one at Heister, who threw wild to Danzig, Stovall
scoring, Kitty landing on third and K"y at the middle stepping place. Coy
ter and tallied both the Bra hears, makin . himself when
throw to thi plate ' ■ by Van Buren. Hosp singled to right and put
Coy at third, hut md when he overran the pillow. Burns d,id
ti, luggler .i< t with Lindsay's drive and Coy registered loi- tin- fourth run.
....as retired « ■ !' : I in i Into II istor's itching palm.
This was too much, and Graham gavi Hunt his release for the afternoon,
havll ■ 1 Nourse up when the first dark clouds hovered over his twirler's
le. Stovall was also left on the bench by Hogan, a game leg being the
alibi for his Idleness. J. Smith was sent in to tho left paature and C
ni"\>ii over t" 111<- central position vacated by Stovall.
Will' oni down and nun.' on the bags to benefit by his suat. Perry featured
ij., with "Ui- of the cleanest home runs picked out this year. The
H \ U p tor picked out a nice one and slammed it iver the hat sipn In
md was tli" object of generous applause from the sands on each
appearance nt the plate thereafter.
But one run does not win a game,
especially hen the other side has al
ready registered a quartet of the
thinsi.-< that count. The Capitalists
went through the remainder of their
times at bat absolutely without a bin
plo of any kind, and the Villagers were
nearly us futile in their endeavors.
Both Schafer.and Nourse were rath
pr wtinsy with their Flsxiits, and ha I it
not been for Hunt's poor execution
while the contest was j oung Perry's
poke might have put the Senators over
the wire a winner. Schafer was ex
tremely careful what hi dished tip for
11:,- opposition to swinfj at, and only
two safe swats wars registered off his
offerings. Nourse also pave out a duo
of percentage fatteners, neither of
which helped the cause of victory
The game was by far the fastest
played here this season— but from
point of time only. Just one hour and
twenty-five minutes after the fin mar
had taken his swing at the sphere it
was all over but going home, and few
dinners -were delayed because the head
of the house was among those rooting
at the Chutes.
Hosp, the former Ansel Bwlrler may
be Riven a permanent berth on tho
Verni.n team, as his work at third
Vase has been absolutely flawless in
both appearances. Hogan is thinkingi
of giving him a chance on the firing
line, and if in his old-time form Hosp, j
topi tli.-r with Raleigh, will be of much
benefit to the Villagers' twirling .staff.
Two contests are scheduled for
today, and Hogan lma hopes of taking
them both. He will pitch Hoy ll'.tt |
nnd possibly Raleigh, while Graham

California tennis circles have begun a
united campaign to Improve the games

plications and try out in the tourna
ment that has been established mainly
for their benefit.
The events will be men's singles,
women's singles, women's singles (spe

whirlpool rapids of the Niagara they
will have embarked on the most novel,
if not the most dangerous, contest ever
arranged among small craft. Yet this

For a period of years no attempt
was made to traverse tin' rapids in a
boat, nor was there any particular
reason, other than for notoriety's sake,
why the trip should be tried, The
river steamboats of two or three dec

made, and the danger! that the rapids
presented to even modern steam craft,
with their heavy engines, precluded
any very frequent effort t.i lay a course
through Niagara's outlet, v remained
