Hoganites Establish New Record.
Carlisle Batting a Feature.
Beavers-Angels Today
Hap Hogan'B Villagers established a
world's record and gave thems-'-lves a
comfortable lead over Frisco in the
for third place in the Coast league
yesterday afternoon at Chutes park by
trimming the Angels In the :-eventh
straight game of t: score
of 4-0. The records of I' to not
show any similar iaso where a, club
took seven straight games Horn the
sain.- team in ■■ «nil tlie
unit north with a fighting
chain c for the pennant. But only ;•
fighting chance, aa they will be obliged
to take practically all of the remaining
fourteen games, and tlie help of the
Angels will be necessary to trim Port
Bull Thorsen was selected to take
tlie mound for the DlUonites in an ef
fort to retrieve his defeat of last
Wednesday, but the phenomenal hitting
of the Tigers sent "Bull" down to an
big twlrler can
. on station from the fact that the
Vernon sluggers hnve treated tl;.
tire Angel pitching staff to the same
dose during the ■ d.
The fifth looked like a defeat for
Vernon. Thorsen walked and advanced
to second when Daley '-crossed" Fisher,
who was playing in for a bunt, with ;i
scorcher to right for one has... Bernard
bunted to Fisher, who tossed Thorsen
out at third. Kurreil making a nice stop
of a rather wide th.-ow. Any kind of a
hit would have scored two runs, but
Howard's case was another Instance
Of the luck which lias militated against
the Seraphs all week. Ivan bounded to
Lindsay, who thre.v Daley out at thi
plate. Bernard went to third and How
ard 10 second on the play. Smith drove
a long fly to Hosp and Euleigh's one
bad inning was over.
Carlisle, who had previously driven
out two iiits. a double and a single,
was passed to first by Thorsen at the
start "t ii:'- .sixth. Burrell sacrificed
him t<- second and "Carlie" reached
third when Orendorff dropped the ball
as hi' was about to peg to third. More
Angel luck, Carlisle scored on Hosp'a
double to left, just out of Kennedy's
reach. Halllnan jumped high in the.
air ami pulled down it. Braahear'a
bounder over third, which was labeled
"base hit." Coy picked out one to his
liking and drove in deep center for
three bases, sending in Hosp. He was
later caught off third, ending this ses
The eighth was another bad inning
for Thorsen. With Kaleigh out of the
•way on a grounder to Delmns, Carlisle
smashed ■•■ double to right and tallied
the third Tiger run on Burrell's single
to left. "Lennle" reached second on
Daley's throw to the plate for Carlisle.
Hosp singled to left, scoring Burrell.
After this the Angels never looked
dangerous, for the Tigers, secure In
having bagged tlie seventh same, took
chances and pulled off fielding stunts
that would never have been attempted

of Dillon, who is resting up for the

but not even Bender of the Athletics

stopped the Tigers the way they have

With a Cheerful smile of victory il
luminating their countenances and
confident of an ability to keep up thrir
burst of speed until the finish of the
season, two weeks hence, the Vernon
Tigers, sixteen strong, led by the re
doubtable "Hup" Hogan, boarded the
"Lark" last night for San Francisco,
where they are scheduled to hook up
With the Oakland Commuters in a
seven-game series. Hogan is the hap
piest man in the world today and de
< land just before leaving that "there's
!no telling where we'll stop." And this
; wan not an Idle jest, for the Tlgera
have a fighting chance for the flag.
The Villagers are eight points c
of the Seals, thirty point* behind the
Commuters and about fifty pegs in
rear of Portland. But they meet
Oaks this week and every n:mi<
won from Wolverton'B men will boost
the Tlgi ra bo much higher. If the
Angels succeed in downing the Beav
ers and Vernon succeeds in doing the

promise to be well tied up at the finish. |

All the men are imbued with confl

picked on Thorsen's slow one for a

Roy Hitt is firmly convinced that
there is a hoodoo folowing him.
"Every game I have pitched in the I
last two months the opposing team has
managed to score two runs, either by
aid of hits or errors," he said. "Some- '
times the dub br-hlnd mo hai man
aged to score enough runs to offset this

Walter Carlisle :ooks better every
time he steps to the plate. The fleet
Tiger is now hitting .2(52 and if he keeps
up his phenomenal work during the
two remaining weeks he will be leading
I the league at the close. How the big
', league scouts ever came to overlook
1 him is a mystery.
The fans quickly caught on and gave
"Hap" a "hand."
Kddie Mainr was a visitor in the Ver
non club house after the battle and
spent a pleasant fifteen minutes in>
forming the Tiger? that they would
have the »500 lie won from Berry on

week from Sunday.
Enough ball players to start a league
occupy the top section of the grand
stand each day. Among those noticed
Monday were Tom Downey of the Kan

of the Vancouver team, "Lefty" Ton

report that he deliberately threw away
Lindsay's drive In Sunday morning's
game. * It is unjust to Eddie to even

he does, and If he was loafing he -would
not be seen taking chances with sliding

Hughey Smith showed up well at first
in the absence of Cap Dillon and in
time might develop into a first cushion
guardian. Hughey '.ikes the infield and

' can do.
Carlisle might well father a super
stition that it is lucky to hit the first
ball pitched in a game. Four games
of the last series ho has taken a crack
at the first ball r.flered him and on
each of these occasions has landed on
second base.
The Beavers arrived this morning.
Let's all pull for the Angels to trim
them and give the Tigers the benefit of
that fighting chance for the flag.

Monthly Tournaments and Han
dicap Play Aids in Develop
ment of Court Game
Followers of the court game who
have had the pleasure of visiting the j
northern haunts of the tennis racket !
and ball have been impressed with the
fact that the average of play, especial
ly around San Francisco, Is much
higher than in Southern California,
true that Torn Bundy has won
his way to the front rank among the
coast players: it is also true that tlie
south cannot boast another such
player capable of making a creditable
showing against the Golden Gate ten- j
nis club stars, McLoughlin, Long, i
Hunt. Hardy and the rest.
The secret lies in the handicap tour- j
nament which has become so popular I
around the Golden Gate and in the ;
all-year-arounck play of the various
clubf. clubs and competitive play be-!
tween the various organizations does'
a groat deal to develop the players
and establish a higher standard, and ■
that is another point in which South
ern California is sadly lacking.
Handicap tennis tournaments are
held during the entire year, winter and |
summer, in San Eranclsco, and are ar- ,
ranged at least once a month. The.
better players, in giving long odds, are
inspired to use their best strokes to
win, and the national champion and
the tyro meet on equal terms. Me- i
Loughlln and Long, the two leading
tennis experts of the Golden Gate,
during the past season have been giv- ;
ing tremendous odds and are compelled i
to play in top notch form throughout
the match to win. One of the draw
backs to the open tourney is the fact
that the first matches are more one
sided, especially if the big men have
been placed in the drawing. In the
handicap variety every match i.s hard
fought, the experts become more ex- |
pert and the juniors develop by leaps
and bounds.
During the winter in Southern Cali
fornia tennis is one of the non-est.
Tournaments of any kind are rare,
and the players have little chance to
round into form. A tournament once!
a month would not pall upon the fans, I
and when the big tourneys are sched- j
tiled play would be wonderfully im- ,
proved. The handicap idea is a good
one and has never been tried out in
the south. Xo one seems to desire the j
initiative in introducing a strange bill
of fare. Handicap tournaments will ;
do a great deal toward bringing the.
national championship title Westward
and in keeping it there. The west has I
one great advantage over the east, out
of door play the year round, and by
taking advantage of opportunity the
west, and, in particular .Southern Cal- \
ifornia, can produce somo wonder
workers with the racket and ball.
There is one tennis organization in
Southern California which directs the
tournaments of the south. It is known
as the Southern California Lawn Ten- ,
nis association. Other than In name, j
it scarcely exists. It is no more than
a ghost to conjure by. Let the asso
elation be rejuvenated, an official club
house and court be selected for tour
nament play, and tournaments be held i
during winter and summer at fre-!
quent intervals. Prizes are unneces-'
■ary to attract the Interested ones, and
these practice meetings would work
a great good for the sport.
The rumor that May Sutton, leading
woman tennis player of the world, and
her rival for the honor, Hazel Hotch
kiss of San Francisco, will leave for
European conquests in the tennis line
is a pleasing one to the local fans of
the game. There IS' nary a ray of
doubt in the minds of the Angelenos
but that the peerless May would come
forth victorious and perhaps Hazel j
Hotchkiss also, in spite of the fact that |
the British press is heralding Mrs.
Lambert Chalmers, who was Miss i
Douglas, as the world champion woman ■
tennis expert and crediting her with
being in the zenith of her skill.
May Sutton has defeated Mrs. Chal
mers and can do it again. A double |
victory over the English star by the (
two Californians would be a groat j
honor and is well in the realms of the ,
probable. If the two coast racket
wlelders are able to go they will bear
with them the best wishes of every
American tennis fan and should have
a great list of trophies to exhibit on
their return.
Another announcement from tin;
camps of Dame Rumor predicts a ten
nis tournament for the courts of the
Hotel Virginia in the month of Jan
uary. A big midwinter tourney would
attract a large following and should
be a great success.
The "dub" tournament is now under
contemplation. It will be held on the
Mount Washington courts during the
first part of next month and will be
open to tho*e who have never had their
names inscribed on Southern California
tennis tournament rolls. A lar^e num
ber of tyros have announced their in
tention of taking part.

John Kilbane, Cleveland Feather
weight, Is New Scalp in
Champion's Possession
MCIV YORK, Oct. -'I.—Announcement
was made tonight that Abe Attell, the
title holder, and Fraukle Conley will
meet In a 20-rouml bout at the West
Side Athletic club on !>iiil(lh.v, November
18, for the world's featherweight cbam
KANSAS CITY. Oct. 24.—Abe Attell
won a decision over John Kilbane of
Cleveland, Ohio, after ten rounds of
fighting here tonight. Attell's title was
never In danger from start to finish,
"He certainly is a jumping jack,"
commented Attell after the fight. And
that tells the story of the battle about
as well as it can be told.
Kilbane, except in the eighth round,
was on the retreat. Attell followed
him about the ring, hoping to get near
enough to land. But the champion
usually had to get the Clevelander in a
corner before he could put In telling
punches. Attell directed the majority
of his blows for the wind, but he drove
home enough choppy lefts and rights to
Kilbano's iieud, to mark the Cleveland
There was no blood drawn by either.
At the beginning of the ninth round
Attell dropped his arms and asked Kil
bane to come in, but Kilbane was wary
and stayed away.
Ted Peppers and Attell posted $600
forfeit at the ringside for a light for
the title.
Kilbane is a comparatively new star
in tho pugilistic world. Until a* year
ago he got nothing better than prelim
inary fights, but during the last twelve
months he has defeated some of the
best featherweights in the east and is
regarded aa n fast and willing fighter.
Attell has held the title for seven years
and probably has defended It more fre
quently than any other champion of
any class.
After making a determined fight for
a Chicago referee, Attell last night
agreed to Leo Shay, a local arbiter, as
the referee.
The most important event in the local
i bowling year took place Sunday night
at the Venice alleys, when Walter
Young led the seasoned veterans of the
beach city a merry chase to a decided
victory. Young has been touted as a
"phenom" with the tenpins and ho
proved the boast to be right last night,
as none of his competitors could keep
i the pace. Young, besides competing In
] the singles, was a member of the live
i man Venice team which defeated the
1 Grands in one of the most exciting
games of the evening.
The tournament held Sunday is the
} first of a series which will be held In
j Venice this winter. The Venice man
agement wll make this feature a yearly
event to allow California bowlers an
opportunity to become seasoned for the
championship Spokane tournament in
March. A large crowd was in attend
