One winning and one consistent losing streak was humped Into yesterday at Coast league diamond*, when the six teams In the organization started away on another series. Here at home the Angels, who lost six straight to Sacramento last week, took Horn's Villagers down the line on a 5-3 score, and at Sacramento tbe hitherto winning Senators were shut out by the Seals, 3-0. Oakland broke in on Portland's gains by registering another shut out, 5-0, Willi*' twirling being the 'en ure of the game. No changes In league standings were recorded, hut are possible today. Should the Angels make It two straight they will be tied with Vernon for fourth place, slightly over the live hundred mark. If the Oaks take a pair In a row from Port land the Beavers must step down to third place and let their conqueror* trail the leaders. It is not possible for the Seals and Senators to switch.

GRIFFIN Where did the horseshoe come from? The Angels, recently outlucked all the way through two series of away from home baseball, returned to their own stamping ground yesterday and hung it all over Hap Hogan's villagers, 6 to 3. Luck figured prominently ln the Los Angeles victory, for Vernon drove one Angel twirler out of the box, made but two errors to their opponent's six, and batted out two more safe swats than the Berryltes. But with all that they couldn't win, and Hogan is looking for the place where Berry keeps that pile of equine moccasins. The Angels, attired in their road uniforms, had first shot at the sphere, and before the first inning was over decorated their frame of the score board with a trio of tallies. Vernon came right back ln their half of the same inning and chalked up a single. Then began a bombardment and ThOrsen, who opened on the mound for the Angels, was chased to the weeds to give Nagle a chance at bending them over. The attenuated slabs was In good form, and held Vernon runless for the rest of the game, the Angels picking up two scores in the fifth spasm and retaining their lead to the end. The double umpire system was placed on the market, and was fairly savory to the fans. Finney and Hildebrand served as Indicator handlers, and judging from the way the bleachers took to the Idea, President Garham will invite some fancy criticism if he leaves the local diamond in a one man condi tion before the end of the season. Finney called judgment on the slants, and Hildebrand announced them out or safe on the pillows. Willett had an extremely rough passage to get by the first inning, but I aside from that the Vernon twirler was in fair pitching form. The trio of j safeties he allowed in the opening frame accounted for a like number of tal- j lies, but after he had struck his gait Hap's mound artist was very much to I tin- good so far as benders went. Ho allowed but two stray hits throughout I the rest of the game, but the two runs in the fifth frame could be attributed to his lack of control. Thorsen was slapped for four hits during his brief stay in the middle of the diamond. Nagle, who followed as official slanter, gave three safe ones to the Villagers, but none of them counted when It came to checking up. Two more on bases and one gone when the judge picked up the burden, but assisted by | a fast bit of work on Bernard's part, whereby a batter was retired and one ; runner cut off at the plate, the tall boy was able to get out with a whole skin. ; Business was brisk from the first minute of the game. Daley, who opened hostilities, slapped one to left for a clean blngle, and went another station on Bernard's perfect life given. Howard drew a quartet of mlscues and George Wheeler, playing first base in place of Cap Dillon, walloped out a two-sacker that sent the duo ahead of him on to the tallying place. Murphy skied out to Lindsay. Hallinan singled, and when Stovall'l throw to the plate got Brown, Wheeler galloped In with run the third. Hogan sicked his warriors on and one tally was their portion the first time a chance with the willow was of fered. Carlisle at the top of the bat ting list, drove out a double to left field and ambled on to bag three when Howard played havoc with Murphy's toss from the garden. Stovall drove to Howard who again performed In fancy fashion, and Carlisle scored, Stovall being safe at first. Nothing else was doing, for the rest of the Villagers were unable to locate them safely. In the second round Vernon came back and tied things up. Lindsay was presented with transportation and then retired on a fielders' choice of Brown's attempted sacrifice. Willett slapped out a single to left. Carlisle laid a pretty bunt down along the third-base line, and the cushions were all occu pled. Stovall rapped a single to left, and Brown and Carlisle tallied, leaving Carlisle on third. At this point Nagle made his bow, and It was all over, so far as A'ernon's further scoring was concerned. Business was comparatively dull until the fifth round, when the Angels Slipped over two and the game when they had no right to. Smith opened the Inning by wing four wide fines. and Nagle sacrificed him on to second. Daley got his by being soaked in tho slats, and Bernard shot at three he SAN FRANCISCO ARTIST TO ENTER PRIZE RING SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2.—ln Ted Wolff|£all star boxing show, which he ! is'io pull "off next Friday at Dreamland ' pavilion under the auspices if the Cen- : tennial club, he has matched 'barley Rogers, the fighting artist, and Charlea i \Veber to box four rounds.

BLIND MAN IS ARDENT FAN AT ABILENE DIAMOND ABILENE, Kas., Aug. 2.—The most enthusiastic baseball fan in Kansas is C, Gish of Abilene, a jiano tuner, who is totally blind. Ho attends all the ball games at Abilene and is well acquaint ed with the names of the players and the merits of each one on the field. Mr. Gish can tell you how many balls or strikes there are on a batter and how many «uts on the side at bat. After the game he can tell the features of the game, and enjoys talking over the play with his friends. "How can I enjoy a ball game when I cannot see a play?" said Mr. Cish. "Well I listen to what the people about me are saying. I can tell every play that Is made providing there is not too much noise. AVhen the ball leaves the bat I can generally tell where it is knocked and who makes the putout.. Sometimes I hear people around me asking how many strikes are on the batter, and if they would ask me I could tell them, because I always listen to the umpire's decision. I cannot tell when an infield play is made, but I get that by asking someone who is near i me. I can give a detailed account of every ball game I attend." TURF GOSSIP W. P. Fine, the California turfman, expected that Glorlo would be the star of his stable on the New York tracks this season. He shipped from Juarez early and started Glorio In the Carter handicap. After that event the horse went to pieces, but Fine has been pa tient with him. and he has been slowly rounding to. Last week he worked six furlongs in good shape, and It is thought he will show to advantage be fore the close of racing on the eastern tract*. * * a There is some ' question aa to the ownership of .

BIMINI BEATS WESTLAKE IN WATER POLO CONTEST In the fastest, closest game of water polo ever staged in tho Bimini baths plunge the. home six last night won from the Westlake squad, 1 to 0. At all times the result was in doubt, as first one clever forward and then the i other would make a rush into the enemy's country, only to be repelled by the ever ready backs. Frank Holborow established a new record for swimming the length of the Bimini lank, thirty-one yards. The coast champion negotiated tho distance in fifteen seconds. Willis O'Malley, amateur champion, essayed the feat, and was but three-quarters of a sec ond slower than his professional com petitor.

There's a queer thing about the Aus tralian—he is built on exactly tho same plana as is ketchel, only on 1 larger scale. Long looks a llttlo like the "Michigan Lion." His eyelids are heavy and hang half way over the eyeballs. It Is usually supposed that men With such eyelids are l good judges of dis tance, and hen Lang boxed with Sailor Burke, who 1° also quartered at the captain's, the spectators all re marked that Lang's Judgment of dis tance was splendid. "I came over here principally to 101 tho fight at Reno," said Lang. "I thought It would be the greatest fight ing event ever held in the world. It was a disappointment. "When Tommy Burns fought John son in Australia ho made a great mis take In going after the negro and try ing to outslug him. Had he boxed Johnson the way he did me, I have no doubt but that ho would have gone twenty rounds. Burns is ft Jolly good boxer, and If he fights Johnson again I believe he will put up a much better brand of fighting. "Johnson cut me up a wee bit about the eyes when we fought, and the po lice stopped it In the tenth round. I was a comparative novice at that time, although I had defeated about twenty five of my countrymen. Soon I'll get another chance and Mr. Johnson will find me a wonderfully improved man," said Lang. Lang was a 4 to l favorite when he met and defeated old Bob Fltz simmons. "Fitz was easy for me," said Lang. "He was too old to tackle a young fellow- like me. After the go I met Bob on the street In Sydney and asked him how lie liked my stylo of milling. 'I'm an old fellow now and you were too strong for me,' said he. Fitz, you know, Is about 50 and I have just passed the 27 mark." It would seem only natural that Lang would want to learn as much as he possibly can about Ketchel, the next man on tho program, but the big fellow apparently does not believe that the middleweight champion has the necessary class to cope with a good heavyweight. '- "At Reno I saw a lot of your best fighting men," said Bill. "Ketchel was about a great deal and I sized him up pretty well. However, you can't tell a lot about a fellow in his street clothes. Everybody told me that Ketchel was a wonderful man In the rinpr "I've got a knockout in both hands: Ketchel Is an open sort of a fighter, I understand, and if such Is the case most likely I will win In a punch, remarked Lang. . He says that a vlctdr^ over Ketchel will do a great deal toward establish ing his name all over the world, and be of particular help to him at homo, be cause the Australians have all reached the conclusion that their men do not class with the American boxers. Bill Squires' downfall brought about the feeling, says Lang. * . m McFARLAND MAY BATTLE GOODMAN IN METROPOLIS Packy McFarland's next battle will in all probability be with Jack Good man before the Fairmont Athletic club of New York during the month of August. Sam Kelly, who la handling Goodman, says that he is willing to send his man against the hard-hitting stockyards scrapper, and as Packy told the manager of the club, Billy Gibson, that he was perfectly willing to sign Articles for a match with Goodman It looks rosy for the aeal going through without a hitch. * a a Billy Job, who was mentioned by Billy Gibson for tho position of referee when Bill Lang and Ketchel tangle two weeks from today, has h^en ac cepted by both principals. While Billy has a "Job" name, he has an excellent reputation as a ring official and should give entire satisfaction. m.m SCULPTOR SUES JOHNSON FOR WORK ON BRONZE CAST NEW YORK, Aug. 2.—Cantaino Scl arrlno, an Italian sculptor, has brought suit for $4000 in the courts here against Jack Johnson, the pugilist. Sciarrino claims this amount for making a bust in bronze of the champion. Johnson was 10 eager for a cast of himself, the sculptor says, that he passed several hours of each day for several weeks ln posing.

"I have not thought out any definite plans," lie said, "but will have some thing to present to the promoters when wo get together.
