LATE HAPPENINGS IN SPORTDOM OAKS PLAY LIKE BUSHERS AND ARE OUTCLASSED BY ANGELS IN OPENER Local Stick Swingers Find Visitors' Twirlers Easy and Connect with Slants of Three Sent on Hill by Wolverton-Many Changes Call for Fourteen Men on League Leaders' Lineup, and General Reversal of Form Is in Order—Crager Produces Puzzlers for Dillon and Holds Game Safe Somewhere between here and San Francisco a baseball team is wandering over the bleak, cactus strewn desert. The team, known all over the coast as those sturdy Oaks, failed to show up at the Chutes yesterday, and in their stead a flock of bush leaguers ap peared to do battle with the Angels. They had the same names as the Oakianders, the same maps and makeups, but surely couldn't have been, for Berry's boys won by a score of 10 to 1, Just imagine the real Oaks, fighting with Portland for the league leader ship, falling for anything like that. However, each and every one of the players affirmed he was the only original his name called for, so we'll let it go at that. It was truly a shame the way the Angels butchered three twirlers of fered by Wolverton, and it was more shameful the way Criger mowed down his opponents, holding them to five safeties and a lone bell tingler. It may have been the real Oakland team, but what a re versal of form 1 The Angels certainly had their batting optics right alongside, and such a drubbing as they gave the slants passed over for their benefit! Moser was sent to the bench after two innings, Slim Nelson was next in line, and Harkins was pounded in every inning he tried to produce puzzlers. Altogether fourteen men were used on the Oakland line-up, and they kept the official scorer busy finding a place to write it all down. Gus Nast, a product of the local brush, who was the batting sensation of the recent Valle)' league series, was given a chance by Dillon, and as far as he had opportunity made good. Nast went in to clout for Daley in the seventh innings and whanged out a two-sacker that acounted for a tally. The boy had one chance in center field, and showed his ability to judge flies by standing still in his tracks to hook a long one. He has all the earmarks of a player, and may be used from now to the end of the season. The Angels broke with an awful rush^ and had Oakland hooked before the first inning was played out. In that frame they made two tallies, one In each the second and third, three in the fifth, and chalked up one for each the sixth, seventh and eighth. All this time Crlger bent them over bo the Oaks could not touch his curves, and the visitors were held runless in all but the fifth frame, when they secured their lone bell ringer. Daley's first time at bat was pro ductive of a single to center. He went to necond on Bernard's sacrifice and on Howard's triple to right came in with tally number one. Dillon whanged out two sacks toward right iincl Howard registered, and Murphy :iiid Wheele.r were retired on ground ers. Pelmns started the show in tho sec ond nidi a long hit to the center field fence, the swat going as a double. Orendorff sacrlficfd him on a hasr-, and after Crlgor had been retired he scored on Daley's infield hit, which Pete beat out to first. Four wide ones to Howard began the third act. He went to second on Dillon's out and pinched third by a bravn dash. Murphy singled to center find scored his teammate, and AVolver- ! ton decided Moser had done enough ] work for one afternoon, retiring him in favor of Nelson. Slim broke well by making Wheeler whiff, and Delmas accounted for the next out. Nelson did not last long, but somo awful brush stuff by the Angels tided htm by the fourth frame, the only one in r/hich a run was not recorded. In this inninsr Orendorff walked and Crlger, who followed, laid a dinky bunt in front of the plate. Instend of running- the hit out, he dogged it, thinking the ball would roll foul, the result being he was tossed out at first. Orendorff got to second all right, but fell for the old brush trick of the hid den ball, Cutshaw pulling tho pill from under his arm after he had th" victim several feet off the bag. Daley walked and Bernard was credited with a single because there was no one at first to receive Cameron's retrieve. | Then Daley and Bernard pulled off a| double steal, but it went for nothing when Howard fanned. The fifth frame saw Nelson's re tirement, Harklns going on the slab when the heat opened. With Dillon down, Murphy singled to left. Wheeler j was hit by a pitched ball. Delmas doubled and scored the duo -ahead of him, and after Orendorff had walked and Crlger sacrificed scored on Daley's blngle. Howard singled in the sixth. sWe second and scored nn Murphy's double, SOUTH COASTERS WILL GIVE VARIED PROGRAM Swimming 1, rowing and motor boat races will be on tap in the outer har bor Sunday, when the South Coast Tacht club will put on a program of aquatic events calculated to make members and srieetators 3it up and take notice.

ANOTHER FOR W. K. PARIS, Sept. 13.— W. k. Vander bilt'B Clatterfoot won the Prix de Co i,imbes run at Tremblay tod;>y. in the Prix Joubert his Bats Delight finished •hlrd. In the seventh Delmas walked, the next two were put out and Nast slammed out a pretty two-saeker, scoring Del. Dillon's double, Mur phy's walk and Wheeler's getting hit by a pitched ball accounted for full bases In the next act, Cap scoring while Delmas and Wheeler were be ing put out in a double play. The Oaks made their lone tally in the fifth inning. Pfyl was chased when Howard threw him out at first, but Carroll was there with a single to Daley's territory. Mltze came through with one to the same portion of the lot and Pearce, who was sent in to whang for Nelson, drew a- pass. Christian went on the bags to do Pearce's footwork and Carroll scored j on Maggert's out, Howard to Dillon. All danger was over when Orendorff took care of Ware's foul.

With the tennis tournaments of the United States National and the Pacific States Lawn Tennis associations writ in hlutory, the court fans are Indulg ing their Idle moments with calcula tions in regard to "who's who" for the 1910 rating. It will be some time before the na tional committee on ranking sends in its report, but already many slates have been proposed, and the above will undoubtedly be the chosen one, with the slight possibility of an Inter change of the names of McLoughlin and Wright. In the unwritten code of the ranking department a final match counts more than a semi-final meeting of the same pair. Wright's victory over the Callfornlan was ac complished in the semi-final division, but took place in the more important of tho two big events of the year. McLoughlln's defeat of Wright was in finals, but in a less Important tourney. The two "leaders of the ten" will not be disputed In their right to the I laoes, third and fourth places are ac corded to McLoughlin and Wright, and the last six are difficult to sep arate on account of the varying con ditions under which they played. Melville Long would undoubtedly have been given a chance In the up per ten If he had been a contestant at either Newport or Longwood, and many would give him a place abov« Nlles in the list under present con ditions. There Is more difficulty In the allot ment of places to the Pacific coaat players after Bundy, McLoughlin and Long have been arranged in the order named. George Janes retains his high place only through courtesy, as he has fallen off considerably in his game during the past year. The work of Winnie Mace, twlre holder of the Southern California title, in tho local tourneys would entitle him to a position second only to that of Long, and Gerald Young would press him closely on the way to the top rung of the ladder. Murdock, one of the old guard, "came back" with a vim and swept some of the "comers" off their feet in the Del Monte championships. Reu ben Hunt won his position by defeat ing Fottrell, while Batkin came into the count by vanquishing Simpson Slnsabaugh In straight sets in the first round. Johnston, although a Junior, was in great form at Del Monte and defeated Fottrell with ease. SANTA ANA TEAM TURNS IN GOOD BULLSEYE MARKS SANTA ANA, Sept. 13.— J. L.
