Hap Hogan's Villagers advanced one ; notch above that .500 deadline yester- ; day afternoon by decisively trimming the Sacramento Senators, 6—o. As Roy ; Brashear remarked aftter the battle, "'lt's Charley Graham's club that keeps ■us in the league. Young Mr. Raleigh, : lata of the St. Louis Cardinals, was the leading man in the performance with his curve ball working to per fection and with his team according him first-class support in the pinches, the outcome of the contest was a fore gone conclusion. LiT Artie Ross stepped Into the lime light in the opening canto with a two base drive that struck the "Bull" sign on the right field fence, which feat ac cords the performer the right to ex tract $50 from the coffers of the to bacco concern which puts out -that particular brand. Ross is the third man to secure "get-away" money by hitting the sign in the past few weeks, j Brown of Vernon and Pfyl of the Oaks j being the other lucky ones. The game was on in the first in- | ning, when with two men in the! morgue Ross clouted his zwei-sacker. Roy Brashear then gave Burns a diffi cult one to handle, which that hard 1 working youngster threw too low for ; Danzig to manage. Ross took third on i the miscue and Roy went to second when La Longe dropped one of Pape's fast' ones. Hosp drove a single just over Burns, the ball tipping the end j of the shortstop's glove, and Ross and I R. Brashear tallied. That was all until the fifth, as the Senators were going out in one, two, ; three order during the majority of the Innings. In the fifth Lindsay singled to center and crossed the plate on Car- j lisle's triple to the same garden. , The sixth was Pape's bad inning. R. j Brashear walked and went to third on Hosp's drive to right. Lindsay ' singled to left, sending Roy in and both Hosp and Lindsay scored on ] Brown's single over Boardman. Only \ three Senators reached third. Carlisle . brought the fans to their feet in the second with a great catch of La j Longe's fly to center. "Carlie" was j given an ovation.

SPALDING GETS GOLD BRICK CHICAGO, Oct. 13.—Some one has "gold-bricked" Charles V. Murphy, president of the Chicago Nationals and depended on the flight of. time to cover his footprints. Murphy presented to A. G. Spalding, one time champion pitcher, the ball which was used in Spalding's great game against the Chicago White Stock ings, at that time managed by Thom as Foley, ono of the old billiard mag nate-. How Murphy got the ball in a mystery, for the ball used in that game was burned when Foley's bil liard hall in this city was destroyed in the great fire of 1871. Foley, to use his own words, was "breathless" when he read a story to the effect that Murphy had given Bpalding the old hall. Foley had clung to that ball with great care up to tho time it was burned, as it was proof that his club had beaten the greatest pitcher in the world at that time, and lie says he knows positively that the tall was lost in the ilia ARTIE ROSS.

LOUIS, Oct. 13.— E. V. Parrish, i who officially scored Sunday's double | header between the St. Louis and I Cleveland American league teams, last j night made the following statement of the Lajoie case: "The first game, in which I gave ! Lajoie four hits for as many attempts, ; was without incident save that there I was a continual procession to the press j box for information regarding the I scoring, which was given. Sometimes ; the scoring pleased tjie fans, at other times it didn't. The game was scored as I saw it, and had I to score it again I would credit Lajoie with four hits for his efforts. , "In the second game Lajoie bunted his first time up. It was a clean hit. His second time up, which was in the third inning, ho bunted again. Cor -1 ridon, third baseman for the St. Louis team, fumbled the ball and Lajoie was j safe at first. A runner was on first with jpone out. He advanced to sec ! ond. In my opinion Corridon could , have gotten Lajoie at first easily by < clean handling of the ball. There was , but one way to score the play, a sac ] rifice hit and an error for Corridon. "As to scoring of the hits I have to _ay: That in my opinion there is no : question as to their legitimacy. They i were clean scoring hits and had they been scored otherwise it would have been an injustice to Lajoie." Parrish also said that Harry Howell, scout far the local team, came to him on Sunday and asked him how the play which was a sacrifice hit was scored. . . -..• * "I told Howell," said Parrish, "that I gave Lajoie a sacrifice hit and Cor ridon an error. He asked me if I could not stretch it a point and make it a hit. I told him I could but I wouldn't. "Howell remained around the press box for some time, attempting to argue the correctness of the scoring. ! A few minutes later a local bat boy brought me the following unsigned note: . i " 'Mr. Parrish: If you can see where Lajoie gets a base hit instead of a sacrifice I will give you an order for ! a $40 suit of clothes—sure. Answer by i boy. In behalf of -— I ask it of you.' " ___,» Howell, when asked about his visit 1 to the press box, stated his connection ! with the matter was purely the get ting of information for a Cleveland i player. He was in citizen's clothes and I not on the bench. LAJOIE ADMITS that HE TELEPHONED TO parrish ST. LOUIS, Oct. 13.— a telegram to a local paper, Lajoie admits he tele phoned to the home of Official Scorer Parrish to see if he had received credit for nine hits. Lajoie's message said Umpire Evans and all the Cleve land players thought he ought to have been credited with nine instead of eight hits. According to Parrish, after the man at the other end of the telephone had paid it was Lajoie and had found out that he had been credited with but eight hits, the man asked if there was any chance for ______ to see nine hits. The answer was "No." After Parrish refused an invitation to go to a hotel, the conversation was cut off. , __*-*< > MARATHON RUNNER HELD ON CHARGE OF BURGLARY CHICAGO. Oct.

DOLLY GRAY RETURNS TO OLD CAMPING GROUNDS Washington American Twirler, Former Member o1 Angels, Recalls Old Times i * Dolly Gray of the "Washington Amer icans and premier wirier of the Coast league during 1907-08, is back again, and worked out yesterday with the Villagers. Dolly pitched • good ball In the big league this season, but was handicapped by . being with a losing club. He Intends to get in all the work possible during the winter months, as, contrary to the orders of the majority of the "big show" managers, Jim Mc- Aleer of Washington has instructed Dolly to keep in trim this winter. Ac cording to report, the track southpaw will sign one of Cupid's contracts be fore returning to the east next spring. After his workout yesterday Doily held quite a reception in the grand stand, where friends of the old days gathered around and inquired about life in the "big bush." Dolly's appearance moved Hap Ho gan, champion crabber of the Coast league, as he is called 'by some, to re call the old days when Gray was climbing the baseball ladder. "He was young and green In those days," said Hap, who sometimes sorrowfully re calls the fact that he has never had a chance to "go up," "and the only way I could get him to do his best was to tell him how much he didn't know. My -special stunt was to remind him that he didn't know as much about ' pitching as a baby. This always riled Dolly, and he would put everything he had on the ball. I had an old glove, and the ball would stick if it landed square in the middle. I'd stick up the glove and- grab the ball with one hand. This made Bill, which was Dolly's par ticular name on the club, all the worse, and he would do his best against the opposing team, to be able to tell me about it afterward. And just think, here's Dolly, ranked by experts as one of the best pitchers of the American league, while I am still out here on the coast. But never mind, next year's Ver non club will win the Coast league flag in a walk, and just look here " and Hogan, the irrepressible, wandered into his favorite subject. WOLGAST AND McFARLAND MIX WITH BROKEN HANDS CHICAGO, Oct. 13.—1t has developed that both Ad Wolgast, lightweight champion, and Tom McFarland of Cal ifornia fought the greater part of their battle at Fon dv Lac with broken hands. Before the end of the ten rounds the champion complained of pain in his arm, which was broken in his contest with Jack Redmond a few months ago. Wolgast after the fight declared he would be unable to fight again for five months, possibly more, on account of tho injured arm. On the other hand, McFarland, who took the match on two days' notice because Tom Gary was unable to fight through sickness, jumped into the fray and fought the full ten rounds. When he left the ring he did not pay any thing about his left hand, which had been fractured just below the wrist. Next day the hand was swollen to twice its natural size. He had the bone set and the hand and forearm placed in a cast. It still is in the cast and will be for several days.

Manager Hogan of Vernon entered an emphatic denial last night of the rumor that" Walter- Carlisle, center fielder of the Villagers, had. been sold to the ltoston Americans for delivery next spring/ ''•;*''' . __- ,: •There Is absolutely no truth in the story," said Hogan. when asked for a confirmation or denial of the report. "My policy Is to build UD the Vernon club and not to tear It to pieces, and I am counting nnon Carlisle for one of the malustays of the 1911 club, which I am figuring upon to take the pennant. I have received no offers for Carlisle, and If I do, will pay no attention to them. Offer* for other members of my clnb have been made this season, but I have turned them all down.

MEETING OF NEW YORK TEAMS EXCITES GOTHAM Christy Mathewson Invincible, Striking Out 14, While ' Ford Fans 9 Giants NEW YORK, Oct. 13.— New York National league club defeated the New York American team in the first 'game of their post-season series today, 5 to 1. In a pitchers' battle between Old Mas ter Christy Mathewson and the young ster, Russell Ford, who has been the sensation of the American league this season, the National hurler overshad owed his rival. Mathewson struck out fourteen, which equals the American league record and excels the National league record for this season. The present series is the first ever held be tween the New York clubs, and was largely attended. Mathewson's work has rarely if ever been equaled in any game in New York. If his opponents threatened to score Mathewson was at his best, fan ning the batsmen with a high, fast ball and a fade-away. Ford pitched fine bail, striking out nine of the New York Nationals and holding them well in hand with his so-called "mystery ball," until his team's defense weakened in the eighth inning, and four runs were made on hard hitting. Ford struck out Snodgrass, the heavy hitter, every time he came to the plate. The Americans suffered a hard blow to their post-season hopes today when Catcher Sweeney had his finger badly split by a foul tip in the third inning. Mitchell took his place. Score: Americans 1, hits 8, errors 2. Nationals 5, hits 12, errors 4. Batteries: Ford and Sweeney, Mitch ell; Mathewson and Myers. Umpires— Klem and Evans., * ADVANCE SALE HEAVY NEW YORK, Oct. 13.—Today brought Now York baseball fans an opportunity to see the rival teams which represent this city in the two big leagues meet to decide the question of superiority. The advance sales of seats for the first four games has been very heavy, and there were expectations that the polo grounds' seating capacity of 37,000 would be taxed. The two teams have never met be fore, and opinions as to which would win were reflected in nearly even bet ting odds. The showing of their re spective pitching staffs was expected to be practically decisive, Manager Mc- Graw> pinning his faith chiefly on Ma thewson, Crandall, Wiltse and Drucke, while Manager Chase relied mainly on Ford, Vaughn, Quinn'and Warhop Seven games will be played if neces sary to decide the issue, the flrst to win four games being declared the winner. The players share in the re ceipts of the flrst four games only, win ners getting 60 and losers 40 per cent of the players' pool. The umpires for tho series are Klem .of the Nationals and Evans of the Americans. The paid attendance at today's game was $24,398; the total receipts $19,262.75. Of this amount the players will re ceive $10,401.88, each club owner $3467.70 and the national commission $1926.27. .- - - WISCONSIN UNIVERSITY ANNOUNCES NEW COACHES MADISON, Wis., Oct. 13.—1t Is an nounced the 'regents of the University of Wisconsin-have ratified the recom mendation of Physical Director George W.

MULLET QUESTION NOW ABSORBS LOCAL ANGLERS An Interesting controversy among fishermen __• been invited as a result of an angling expedition to Alamitos bay undertaken last Sunday by a party composed of George Rico,, Hays Rico and "Dad" Jenkins. Each member of the party claims to have caught two mullet with hook and line, whereas veteran fishermen of this vicinity de clare that such a feat has never been accomplished in the history of fishing, as the mullet is a vegetable fish, sub sisting entirely upon vegetable matter, and will not take a hook. A. M. Morse of the Southern Cali fornia Rod and Reel club states that the club was in receipt of a letter from the Smithsonian institution at Washington some time since, in which tho government experts declared they had never heard of a mullet being caught with a hook and line. The local Waltons agree that the only way to secure this toothsome fish is by seining. The mullet is known as tho gamest fish swimming, and George Reynolds, a veteran angler of this city, declares that he has seen them jump a net extended twelve feet in the air. - ■ ;' '.. The Southern California Rod and Reel club, which is the premier or ganization of its kind on the coast, had a prize up for several years which was to bo given for the first angler to catch a mullet with a hook and line, but the offer was withdrawn some time ago, as the feat was deemed impossible. ■ --« __________________________________________________ ' a n "\ " EST. 1900 ~T _C_^____l ______-_.
