Baseball, Racing, Boxing —...._. i — OAKS TO TACKLE VILLAGERS TODAY Northerners and Locals Should Put Up Ding Dong Series During Week ANGELS PLAY AT SACRAMENTO Grass Diamond and Other At tractive Features Planned for Chutes Park All aboard for another week of Coast league baseball. The teams will line up ready for the fray tills afternoon, and another shot at pulling up on the leaders will be given the Angels, Vil lages and Oaks. Here at home we will have llogan's braves battling with the Oaks, the lat ter feeling fine and pert because of the trimming they admlnl.torel the ever dangerous Angels on the northern grounds last week. However, the Vil lage warriors are also feeling some sausy, mainly because of th? easy manner In which they bandied the Cap italists during the recent series here. Los Angeles goes to Sacramento to take a whirl at the scrappy Senators, and unless they do better than against Oakland, the Dillonltes may feel the hook. At the opening of tho last series chances for Los Angeles to go to the head of the class were bright indeed, but after getting away to a flying start and taking two straight games the Angels blew and secured but one more victory out of the bunch. San Francisco and Portland, the league leaders, will resume their fray find the former appear to hay ! all the better of the argument. If the Seals ran take the long end of _ majority of scores on McCreedie's own ground they surely ought to do as wc'l with the Beavers striving away from their home lot. Again, the Frisco fins are a mighty partial flock, so their repre sentatives will have plenty of support ■when they face Portland on the Recre ation park field today. It Is among the probabilities that when the Chutes diamond Is sodded nt tho close of the. present season a new grandstand will further add to the attractiveness of the place. While no plans have been definitely announced, directors of the Los Angeles Baseball association arc discussing the Idea, and lt Is daily growing ln favor. According to the general scheme, lt is thought a grandstand and bleach ers with one-third more capacity than that .of the present structures, ornate and fitted with all modern conven iences, will servo as an added attrac tion and Insure more than a third large attendance. With a restful grass diamond to enhance the beauty of the scene, the directors figure they would be warranted in making the Improve ments. A ten year lease has been secured by the baseball association on Chutes park, and the directors are free to go ahead with their plan of making the local lot ahe handsomest ln the league. In the winter the sod which is now growing at Tenth and San tea streets will be transplanted, and the'outfleld sown with some hardy grass. The scheme for a new grandstand may be adopted by then, and perhaps the Chutes will go forth as an added ad vertisement of the up-to-dateness of Los Angeles. President Graham may pay a visit to the local lots this week and local boosters of the diamond sport are sharpening up their vocabularies to be ready for the league leader's advent. The lack of two umpires in games played here, the while two northern cities having the services of a pair of Indicator men, has been a Fore spot with the Los Angeles contingent, and they are only too anxious to lake is sue with Graham regarding lift un favorable attitude toward the south. Both Henry Berry and Colonel J. W. Brooks of the Vernon club have seT eral times wired the league president regarding the need of help for the man calling the changes on the local lots, hut their efforts resulted in nothing more tangible than a reply stating Graham would look into the matter. Whether ho did or did not has never been known, for the fact still remain, that ft lone indicator holder is still doing duty at Chutes and Doyle parks.

HERALD SPORTING PAGE LEGG IS STAR OF QUALIFYING ROUND Minikahdo Player Leads Western Championship Aspirants Over Home Links WOOD'S RECORD IS LOWERED Sixty-Four Survivors Will Play 18 More Holes in Qualify ing Today [Associated Tress] MINNEAPOLIS, July 25.—Harry O. Legg of Minnikahda led the field in the first half of the 36-hole qualifying round for the western golf champion- ship tournament over the links of the Minikahda club today. Legg made 18 holes in 70, two strokes below the curse record made by Warren Wood of Homewood Friday. The quality of golf displayed by the sixty-four sur vivors of today's game was the best even shown in a western champion ship. The highest to qualify was 87 and there were several ties at those figures. W. I. Howland, Jr., of Glen View, finished second with a 72, while Paul Hunter and Mason Phelps of Midlo thian, and Albert Seckel of Hinsdale handed In 74 cards. Charles Evans, jr., the western champion, made a 75 after a bad journey out. R. A. Gardner of Hinsdale, national champion, also had a 7."«. Warren Wood of Homewood, winner of the low qualifying prize in the 1.09 west ern tournament, handed in a 77. The sixty-four survivors will play 18 more holes In the qualifying round tomorrow. Those who failed to land in that charmed circle are out of the championship contest. The Legg's 70 was little short of phenomenal, as he had hardly any luck. He rimmed the cup six times on putts, as he said the putting greens were keener than he had anticipated. His driving was brilliant, especially on the shorter holes, where he drove on to the green every time. His only poor drive was in playing the tenth, but he retrieved himself with a screaming brassie that put him on the green in two. He lost his chance for a 3 by missing a comparatively easy putt. He took three putts on the sixteenth and then held out in a five. His in st previous performance over the new course here was 73. Cards of the leaders. The cards of the leaders follow: Harry G.

I.AKXKD M'LOUGHLIN LOSES CHANGES FOR TITLE Crack California Tennis Player Is Defeated by W. A. Lamed at Longwood [Special to The Herald] BROOKLINE, Mass., July 25.—With two Longwood cups already In his possession, the national lawn tennis champion, William A. Lamed, of Sum mit, N. J., fulfilled the expectations of his friends and defeated Maurice E. McLoughlin of the Golden Gate Tennis club of San Francisco in the chal lenge round of the Longwood tourna ment today after dropping the second set. The match did not result in the grueling contest that was predicted and the sets were taken by rather one sided scores. Lamed led off with his service and ran out the game easily. McLoughlin followed with a win from his own forcing strokes and the games ran to 2-3 on McLoughlin's service before the turning point in the set was reached. Lamed won the westerners serve after a long struggle, the game running to deuce several times and the vantage point on McLoughlin's side twice. With the breaking through on his own serve the Californian be came erratic and Lamed ran out the set 6-2 by letting his opponent toss the points into the net and over the line. __ __ The second set produced the finest tennis of the match and the vantage points see-sawed back and forth with few mistakes on either side and a pre dominance of aces and kills to run out the score. Each man took his own serve and ■'he score ran to 4-all and Larned's service. McLoughlin broke Into his real form at this point, and let himself out In heavy forehand strokes that the easterner tried in vain to reach. Lamed scored one clean ace In the deciding game, but the Cali fornian placed three and took the last point on an out by Lamed. Mc- Loughlin served the tenth game in brilliant style and dropped only ono point on a crosscourt stroke that ticked the sideline. Rain interrupted the proceedings at this stage of the game, and the play ers took advantage of the cessation in hostilities to rest. The intervention of this dampening feature told on Mc- Loughlin, and he could not get warmed to the work afterward. His disposition is not of the waiting kind, as he plays his best game after a struggle through a grueling morning's round In which he has been pressed to the limit. WESTERNER LOSES SPEED The winner was easy to pick at this stago of the game, as McLoughlin's play seemed to be losing speed and Lamed was serving and driving easily and with scarcely an effort. Mc- Laughlin would drive through a splen did rally and bring the score to deuce and then aggravatlngly net or out the next two points. The national cham pion never displayed such perfection in the placing of his strokes as he showed today. He was the cool, cal culating court general as of old and did not show the erratic streak which was so obvious in his match with Carl Gardner in the Metropolitan tourna ment a month ago. McLoughlin's fore hand drive, when he put his whole strength into the stroke, brought him many points, but was greatly offset by his weakness at the net and his inability to change the direction of his follow with sufficient speed to cope with Larned's sure placing of the crosscourt drives. McLoughlin served several aces, but overbalanced the spectacular side of his serving game with doubles at critical periods of the match, , . ■I'll., third set was an easy victory for the easterner, McLoughlin taking only the second game on his own service Lamed drove and smash d with great accuracy and play.-.] with his opponent. The Californian netted _ great many of his strokes and lost a great deal In the speed through sheer nervousness. » In the fourth set the score ran evenly to the seventh game, 3-all and Mc- Loughlin serving. That game was the keystone of the match, and alter a i hard-fought deuce game the national | champion won by forcing his opponent | to the back court and coming to the net. The last two games were easy I for the champion, and the Californian I fell Into an erratic streak, from which he did not recover. The final .core 1 was 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3. From the match today the prophets are picking the Newport possibilities, i ami there are thou who declare that < if McLoughlin keeps the pace which he in shown In the past week's pro gram there will be another match be tween today's stars in the Newport tourney, with the probability of a Uif- SCHOONER SWEETHEART LOSES RACE TO HAWAII BY LESS THAN AN HOUR HONOLIXr, July 28.The schooner Sweetheart, hope of the South Coast Yacht club of Los Angeled in the trans pacific race, arrived here at 9:10 o'clock this morning, Just 17 hours and 46 minutes behind the Hawaii. This put the Sweetheart out of the running by forty-six minutes, as her time allow ance from the Islands pride was an even seventeen hour.. All on hoard the Sweetheart were well, and until they learned of the time at which their most feared rival had dropped her hook, were confident they had the race well In hand. Captain Lew Harris and his crew will return to the mainland with their craft within a week, despite many urgent and cordial Invitations to remain and see the Island sights. The desire to get bark Into the home port before serious weather threatens Is given as an excuse for the hasty leaving. The yawl .Mollilou, representative of the Aeolian Yacht club. Is the craft still to be heard from. Commodore T. L. Ware and his fellows are capable seamen, and no fears are entertained for their safety. It Is thought they will be in the harbor tomorrow. The Mollilou will remain here, as she has been purchased for pleasure trips in these waters. erent result. McLoughlin is certain to win from the national champion some time, and that the time will be in the near future there is little doubt. Lam ed plays a great game, but his style of play is the style of ten years ago and not to be compared with the rush ing, forcing style of today. McLough lin has been fighting at a great dis advantage on account of being unac customed to the turf, and when lie has had a season or two on the green the national title cc ill seem much nearer than at the present time. BURNS IS 'WILLING' TO BUTTLE FOR 35 PER CENT SEATTLE, Wash., July 25.—Tommy Burns, who is in Seattle, denies the statement published in New York that the match between Burns and Sam Langford, scheduled to take place in London in September, has been called off by Promoter Hugh Mcintosh be cause Burns demanded $5000 more than the amount he originally agreed to battle for. "I told Mcintosh at Reno after Johnson had agreed to meet me again that I would fight Johnson for 35 per cent of the gross receipts," said Burns today. "I figured that Johnson, icing the champion, would get about m per cent. Then I wired Mcintosh that I wanted 10 per cent of the receipts to meet Lang."l'd, but that I was still willing to tackle Johnson for 35 per cent of the gate." STANDING OF THE CLUBS COAST LEU.

Amateur Sports, Athletics STAR PACERS WILL BEGIN TOUR TODAY A Savage Combination of Crack Harness Horses to Appear at Dakota Fair EXTENSIVE TRIP IS PLANNED Minneapolis Owner Intends Try ing Novel Stunts All Over the Country MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., July 25.-M. W. Savage's combination of ah star racing and exhibition pacers will make their first public appearance tomor row on the North Dakota state fair track at Fargo. This will be the beginning of the most extensive tour ever attempted by any stable of rare horses ln the United States. The Itinerary Includes more than a score of race meetings and state fairs in the northwest, middle west, east, far west and the sunny south. It Is roughly estimated that the com bination will travel by rail ln tho neighborhood of twenty thousand miles and will give exhibitions of speed from Pennsylvania to California and from North Dakota to Louisiana. It Is very probable the season will be closed In the West Indies with exhibitions at Havana, Cuba. Mr. Savage started out to corner the world's fastest pacers. Ills success has been attested by the enthusiasm aroused among fair managers all over the United States over the entertain ment features he has to offer. The owner of Dan Patch has over a hun dred requests for dates from fairs, race meetings, large and small, In every part of the United States. As It would be undesirable as well as Impossible to appear at all of these places, Mr. Sav age has been and still is choosing the best dates in reference to time and short Jumps. Ho already has closed contracts with a dozen associations and there are a large number more that will be closed within a short time. The five stars of the Savage stable are Dan Patch, 1:55 champion harness horse of the world; Minor Heir, 1:59%. holder of several world's records and conceded to have the best opportunity of lowering some of the seven records now held by Dan Patch; Hedgowood Boy, 2:02.4. &nd Lady Maud C.,-2:02H, the world's champion polo team and individual race performers with two minute possibilities; George Gano, 2:03 3-1, champion money winner of 1909, and as great a race horse as ever looked through a bridle. In addition, the personnel of this equine troupe will include the famous running pacemakers, Cobweb and Gabriel, and two or three of the most promising of Dan Patch's colts that will take part In races at the various fairs. These famous pacers will travel in a specially fitted up palace car by express on the fastest trains all over the United States. They will have every elegant appointment, every care and comfort that brains can suggest or money procure. The entertainment that will be of fered by the combination includes a race for the race championship of the world between Minor Heir, George Gano, HedgeWOOd Boy and Lady Maud c. exhibitions by Minor Heir and the Other horses single in efforts to lower the world's unpaced record, and a modernized chariot race between Lady Maud C. and Hedgewood Boy and George <;ano and Minor Heir. , Fair managers generally are most enthusiastic about the four horse race since each one expects 'to give his track a new record and the public a contest that will furnish unusual excitement. Mr. Savage is letting the fair manager! name the drivers in this race, subject to his approval, and there will probably be a purse hung up for the driver that wins, and the horse and driver that carries off the money on any good track will have to nego tiate the mile very close to two min utes. ♦« » NATIONAL LEAGUE PITTSBURG, July 2...—Philadelphia won today, 3 to 2, by getting as many hits in the third inning as Pittsburg got in the entire game.
