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. The figures:

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

Parrish Offered Suit of Clothes if
He Would Favor
ST. 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
"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.
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.

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.
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
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.
CHICAGO, Oct. 13.—Harry Forbes,
ex-bantamweight champion of tho
world, has been matched to meet
Jimmy Watts of Indianapolis for ten
rounds before the Springfield Athletic
club at Springfield, Ohio, October 17.
They will meet at catch weights.
George Gray, the 18-year-old Aus
tralian bllllardiSt, established a new
English billiard record at Leeds, ■with
a break of 985,
*. 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. Where the
rumor originated I have no Idea."

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., *
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.

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 13.—Judge W.
McCredle late today made public a
statement commenting on the decision
of President Graham of the Pacific
Coast league forfeiting the games be
tween Portland and Oakland played
September* -7, 29 and 30 to Oakland:
McCredie makes the assertion . that
President Graham does not decide the
player, Hetling, belongs to Spokane,
nor does he decide that Hetling is a
contract jumper. McCredle says that
Graham is merely a dragnet, "trying
to catch enough to justify his de
cision." ■ ' '._- *'
McCredie declares that although
Judge Graham says that he does not
care win) wins the pennant, he penal
ized* Portland on the sole ground that
it is difficult for him to believe that
Hetling was played with Spokane with
out being % released. "Think," Mc
< "re-die continues, "of a superior judge
finding that we transferred Hetling,
upon the slender thread that it was
difficult to believe we did not." '•
. McCredle asserts also that the bur
den of proof as to Hetllng'a ownership
is on Oakland, and that Judge Graham
has not a particle of evidence before
him to establish the transfer which
inn reality never existed.

Rowing at Stanford university and
at the University of California in all
probability will be again placed on an
Intercollegiate basis. *At a recent
meeting of the executive committee at
Stanford the student body agreed to
finance the sport and recognize lt, pro
vided amateur coaches were secured.
As it was only the refusal of the Stan
ford student body to continue rowing
that resulted in the sport being
dropped, it is deemed highly probable
that at California favorable action will
now be taken. The races last year
were held under the auspices of rival
rowing clubs composed of students, but
not recognized as varsity organizations.
What undoubtedly is close to a re
cord for duration in a golf match has
just been made by two members of tho
Siwanoy Country club of Mount Ver
non who have been playing In the
fourth round for the president's cup.
From handicaps at 11 and 26 stokes,
respectively, J. R. Taylor and John
Thorpe have four times in succession
finished all even after covering^ the
eighteen-hole course. The men have
played seventy-two holes without set
tling their match.

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. ■
