SPORTS FINE PLAY OF SUMNER HARDY AT DEL MONTE Californian Loses to DA'ight Davis at Tennis, but Shows Ex cellent Form. Special TVspatch to The Call. DEL MONTE. Sept. 6.— The singles championship tournament between the ■ and Atlantic tennis magnates Is at an end. Out of sixteen matches played the Westwnerß have captured two, hoth by the skillful playing of Sumnor Hardy, who demonstrated his ability to-day In no mean fashion. After a gruelling m.a'ch played yesterday afternoon with Whitman, the champion of the United B, he forced Dwight Davis, who ranks second on the list of fennis top notehers, to extend his prowess In a five set match. Sumner Hardy has proved his right to be classed with tho best the country has produced, and nothing but praise for hi? clever racket play is heard nr Del Monte to-night. Davle, although topped by Whitman in Eastern championship tournaments, is a harder man for the Westerners In *<?n --iils strife than Is the champion hin.self. Iliß Btyle of play Is different from any thing to which they are accustomed. He is a veritable Trojan, ever on the war path, and always looking for subjects of slaughter. His terrific smashing and mer ciless drives won his matches from the Pacific Coast men before the game had fairly started. But It was different In the case of Sum ner Hardy. This was the last contest of the day and the sole real struggle of the tournament. Previous to thfs match Hardy had disposed of Ward and Wright, the two lesser lights of the Eastern ten nis firraami'iit. It was predicted by all that the battle would be well worth poc- ti p and the court on w..ich It was played i\a.-= crowded when game was called. Sumiur Hardy begun his play with all srve he has demonstrated in the Pacific Coast tournament. In rapid suc in he won the rtrst four games.

FOUR MEN MISSING. There are a couple of mysterious dis appearances on the water front. A pris oner on the German warship Geier is gone, and with him went a small boat belonging to the Union Iron Works. Bill Spear, a boatman, and two passengers whom he look out on <.he bay last Monday night in Jack Hurley's boat are also missing and nu trace of men or boat can be found. The German sailoi had been court-mar tial. (1 and confined in the brig. He got out of his prison and made his escape in the dingy used by the workmen of the iron works. Neither man nor boat can be found, and the supposition is that the eailor sunk the boat after making his es cape. No attempt is being made to re capture the man, but the Union people would like to recover the boat. Last Monday night Bill Spear, accom panied by a soldier and a one-legged man, but in an app< arance at the clay street eteps. They were all under the influence of lkiuor. and Spear asked for the loan of Hurley's boat. He was at first refused. He final] v secured the Whitehall and he and his .two companions got in and rowed away. Neither boat nor men have been seen since. Hurley seems to think that the three men are at Sausalito carousing, but if they do not turn up to-day a search party will be organized. Advances made on furniture and pianos, with or without removal. J.NooaaD, IW7-1023 Mission.

NILGAR FIRST FOR THE DEWEY SELLING STAKE Daymont Captures the 2:17 Class Special Trot After an Excit ing Brush. St.-cial Dispatch to The Call. SACRAMENTO, Sept. 6.— Business is picking up in the weather line, and before I the week passes the mercury In the ther- i mometer bids fa ir to bump the top of the glass. The grand stand this afternoon at Agricultural Park was well filled with the fair sex, attired in stunning Bummer suit ings, and in the rin^r the bookies experi enced the liveliest betting session of the j meet. There was little growling over the j prices laid, and the books finished in the ; "place," the crowd displaying rare form In landing on the winner. In the harness events John A, the brown son of Wayland W, enjoyed a walkover, j and Lottie captured the -:I'l class trot im pr< ssively. Two days' work in succession, ' however, was asking too much ol Mamie Riley, for she lost the ".special" to Day mont. ' Diminutive Midlove, favorite for the Dewey selling stake, tound the route too far, the prize falling to Nilgar. Cromwell, the sizzimg choke tor the mile-and-a-six teenth run, was led out by New Moon, and in the windup round Manzanilla and Mafada were headed over the line by i'an amint, Thorpe riding one of his best lin tshes. After John A had made a trip around the elliptic for the 2:20 class pacing stake the eight starters in the 2:'sz trot were called. After hr-r Impressive victory at Oakland Lottie looked to be "Hawkins' horse," and Bold a 10 to 6 favorite over her field. Colonel X X, over which Billy Jon athan held the ribbons, had a respectable following, and alth"iigh the Colonel did not win he put his foot down In a way that commanded respect. The necessary three heats to draw the long end of the purs.- were r«el<-d off without effort by the favorite, Spencer handling her to perfec tion. Dora Doe, which annexed second money, stepped three nice heats, and in the tiiird. Colonel X R, finishing second, seemed to be getting just warmed up to his work. The special trot for horses eligible to the 2:17 class had bettors guessing before it was over. For the first heat the books marked up 4 to 5 on Mamie Riley and 6 to ."> on Daymont, this pair looking to be the most eligible. Charley Bunch, the "Beau Brummel of the Hike," came out wearing a wise 4x4 smile behind Dr. Frasse, a 4 to 1 choice, and led from wire to wire in 2:18. Daymont went high into the air at the llrst turn, and Mamie Riley stubbed her toe soon after passing the half, linishing fourth. The betting now became nervous and fretful. Mamie Riley was held at 6 to 5, with even money chalked against Day mont and Dr. Frasse. In this heat Mamie Riley was on her good behavior, and pass ing the Doctor in the stretch she won easily. Daymont once more made a bal loon ascension at the turn. The heat winner was now made an over whelming choice. When the horses ap peared for the second heat "HI" Hogo boom had replaced his brother behind Daymont, and with encouraging results. In the drive from the head of the stretch home Daymont outfooted both Mamie and the Doctor, taking the heat without effort by a couple of lengths. The Doctor shot his bolt, and with Ma mie Riley displaying signals of distress Daymont looked a good thing for the fourth heat. Closing favorite, he broke at the turn and seemed out of it. At the far turn, though, Mamie Riley left her feft. allowing Daymont to get up and eventually win In a jog. Dr. Frasse fin ished second, securing second money. The thoroughbreds now went to the bat. Only three started for the Dewey selling stake at a mile. Midlove closing favorite ever Nilgar and Jennie Reid. The talent figured that the first choice and Nilgar would chase away in front, after which the Burn entry would come on and win. but it did not so happen. Midlove sailed away In the lead, opening up several lengths oT daylight, with Ward on Nilgar taking matters easy. At the stretch the leader was all out, and Nilgar assuming c mmand disposed of Jennie Reid with little to spare. The books laid up little coin, as Joe Terry and his friends spread their coin about on the winner. Cromwell had been passed around all day as the, real thing for the mile and a sixteenth selling run, which caused him to be set up an even-money chance. The chestnut ran a good race after his long rest, but was headed from start to finish by the S to 1 shot New Moon, well rated by young Mounce. Fortis met with his usual streak of bad luck, making a game effort from the far rear and finishing a close third. Nine platers went to the post In the final number, a six furlong sprint, decided un der selling conditions. Manzanilla. Ma fada and Panamint nil came in for heavy hacking, the first named closing a slight favorite. After being cut off on the back stretch Thorpe, astride Panamint, hooked up with Mafada and Manzanilln the last furlong, and In a very exciting drive was first by a neck. Mafada downing the fa vorite a short head for the place. Following are the entries for to-morrow: First race— 2:4o trot; two-year-olds; mile heats, three In five. Eulah Me, I Vendome.

To-morrow will probably witness the trial. Consideration for his men was an other factor which served to delay the | trial under racing rlf?. The crew of the ■ Shamrock had been quartered on the Nonowantuc, a vessel which Sir Thomas J discovered was too small for their com ! fort. He accordingly chartered the pro i peller Plymouth, a vessel larpre enough ito accommodate 1000 passengers. The I'lvmouth arrived from Boston early to day, and proceeding to the Horseshoe tied Up to the Nonowantuc. The Sham i rock's crew was then told to move into ' Its more commr.dious quarters, and dur ln'ff the forenoon the sailors were kept busy shifting belongings and establishing THE CALL'S RACING CHART.

STAR POINTER DETHRONED AS PACING KING Game Old Joe Patchen Wins a Magnificent Race at the Em pire City Track. Special Dispatch to The Call. NEW YORK, Sept fi.— Fifteen thou sand enthusiastic spectators were at the Empire City trotting track to-day to see the grreai race between the pacers Star Poii •• i. .Jim- Patchen, John R. Gentry and Searchlight. The grandstand was crowded to the guards, the lawn was black with people and In the Infield there were hun dreds <>f v. ■hides. In the betting ring there was a surging crowd only too anx ious to bet 100 to 3Q on Star Point* r against the field, until poolselllng was stopped by the local authorities— which, however, did not interfere with the books and backers were .still able to put on their money. When McCleary appeared behind Star Pointer he received a rous ing cheer, !>ut when Joe Patchen, with ills old lctmiliar white nose and face, came up the stretch the applause was still louder, and when the haniisoine little bay Stallion, John K. Gentry, turned into the stretch the whole grandstand arose and applauded. Searchlight, the great son of Dark Night, who Is looked upon as the coming champion, was brought to the Judges' stand and it was announced that he was not in racing condition and would not be a starter. Three times they came down for the word, but each tune the starter realized that they were not exactly on their stride. At the fourth attempt they came down like a triple team, and when the word "Go" was given Pointer at once started out to win the heat. It was soon snt-n that Joe Patchen was in racing con dition, und he hur.g on to the favorite's wheel wiih the grim determination of a veteran who never knows when to stop. Around tlu< back stretch the conflict was close and exciting, and the public almost lost Bight "f John K. Gentry, as he was several lengths behind. Around the top turn Star Pointer appeared to gam, but it was simply an optical delusion, and when the mighty pair swung into the Btretch it was apparent to everybody that they were about to see one of the most magnificent races of the century. On they came, Star Pointer on his cour agi- and Joe Patchen d'-siring to beat his old and mighty antagonist; but try as he would he could not <iuite get there, Star Pointer landing a winner by a neck in Joe Patchen and Star Pointer were both together, with John R. Gentry about a length back, when the word was given in the second beat, and the positions re mained practically unchanged to the quar ter, where Patchen assumed the lead and held it to the wire in spite of the deter mined effort of McCTeary, who was driv ing Star Pointer. Patchen won by a length, with Gentry several lengths in the rear. Time. 2:02? 4 . This was the fast est mil<' paced in a race this season. There was now a rush to cover among the spectators, who recognized that the old-time pacing king was to be dethroned, and they made no mistake. As soon as the word was given Joe Patchen started out to complete his victory, and he did it in a most effectual manner. Star Pointer broke so badly that he was distanced, and John R. Gentry was utterly unable to compete with the horse that he beat at Rochester and which beat him at Goshen. The time of the last heat was 2:O4Vi- It was announced that Star Pointer would never race again. The regular programme began with the 2:22 trotting class, for which there were eight starters, and Senator L was plunged upon as the favorite at 100 to 40 for the field. It was simply a runaway race, as Senator 1., won In straignt heats with four or five lengths to spare. In the 2:10 mile dash for trotters the gray gelding Success was the favorite at even money, but the bay gelding Alvos, owned by Xathan btraibs and driven by Thompson, took the lead at the half and came home a very easy winner in 2:O9Mt. The 2:14 trottlnsr class wound up the days sport. In a field of twelve the black mare Rubber was the favorite, and she never gave her backers any cause to worry, as she simply walked away from her field, winning in 2:10)4.
