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. Tbe possibilities

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
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

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."
W. P. Fine, the California turfman,
expected that Glorlo would be the star
of his stable on the New York tracks

early and started Glorio In the Carter

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
The lineup for the polo game was as
follows: Bimln—Marcus Lee, Howlett,
forwards; Edwards, half; Harroll and
Sweet backs; Moore, goal. Westlake
—Frank Leo and Blades, forwards;
Sholes, half; O'Malley and McManus,
backs; Ranst, goal.
A lively program of aquatic events
lias been prepared for Friday night,
and another water polo game will be
among the features.

LANG DECLARES HE MAY
BEAT KETCHEL IN PUNCH
Australian Heavyweight Looked
on as Enlarged Edition <of
NEW YORK, Aug. 2.—8i1l Lang, the
champion heavyweight of Australia,
has started training at Captain Bond's
place In Stratford, Conn., and all of the
villagers flock to the camp to get 1
look at the big fellow, who is to meet
Stanley Ketchel at the Falrmount Ath
letic club August 12.
. 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,"
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
"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
"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.

McFARLAND MAY BATTLE
GOODMAN IN METROPOLIS
Packy McFarland's next battle will
in all probability be with Jack Good

send his man against the hard-hitting

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.

Billy Gibson for tho position of referee
when Bill Lang and Ketchel tangle
two weeks from today, has h^en ac

has a "Job" name, he has an excellent
reputation as a ring official and should
give entire satisfaction.
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

plans," lie said, "but will have some
