YACHTING : /Eolus Wins the Macdonough Cup.
BASEBALL : San Francisco Defeats Sacramento.
Hardy v Brothers Win the Coast
Tennis Championship by Out
playing Whitman and Wright.
Ati Ii ;■> The Call.
DEL MONTE. Sept. 9.-After an un
bridled arid unbroken course of clouting
Whitman and Wright, the tennis invinc
iblcs from Boston, foil with a sickening
fall yesterday afternoon under the swing
ing racket Hows of Sam and Sumner
Hardy; The many clouts, for such have
thejstinging?de£eats at the hands of the
East been dubbed; are now wiped off the
slate, for this single victory; retains the
doubles championship for the West, and
was as sensational *»a contest as has ever,
been seen on the Pacific I oast. In three
straight, sets the Hardys rang the death
knell of the Easterners; who have been
hailing on oceans of victory erer since last
Tuesday; the inaugural of the Atlantic-
Paciflc tournament.
Game by panic the score advanced until
the boards read five all. The local team
took the aggressive. Sam Hardy was sud
denly metamorphosed into a clout< r.
Whenever the opportunity offered he
Bmaßhed the balls nke another Davis and
it was these strokes combined with skill
ful placing, superb cuts across court and
< areful h< ad work that won the set for
the Hardys. Five all. six all and then two
games in rapid succession gave ■ he match
to the plucky Westerners. Whitman and
Wright were bewildered; it was some
thing novel to their tennis understandings
and they changed courts automatically
lor the beginning of the next set.
llobart wanted to bet .. liittier horses
on the result of the match, but both pick
ed the same team so neither will collect.
All books having lixe.l their slates the
second sot was called. Again the Hardys
won the tirst game, but lost the following
two only to even up the score on the fourth.
They then went ahead again; but again
the score was tied, three all and a palpi
tating grandstand waiting for the end.
Courage and daring eat In the hearts of
the Hardys and for the Irst time in their
lives they played with a reckless bril
liancy Driving and chopping everything
in sight by .Sumner and an outclouting
of the dinners by Sam, saw the end of
this set. which read 6—3 in favor of the
Oakland boys. Alter this there was no
more ruthless betting, except by the ,
youthful enthusiasts on the back benches
'who had cigarettes to burn and gum to
tril'.e with indigestion: In the third set
there was no question ay to the outcome.
Although every point was contested the
Hardys played hard and brilliant tennis '
right 'up to the end. The last point of the
{Tame was the most sensational rally of ■
ihe match and won by Sam Hardy's
tjnash after a. rail v that ..is the cause of ■
three distinct cases of nervous prostra
tion. Volley after volley, with the quickest |
lacket play at the end. all four men in
action; was what the spectators went wild |
over. For a time it looked as if the game
would never end. but Sam Hardy's ter
minal smash did the trick.
•'Unmo, match, set; tournament—
win!" yelled Joe Daily in the scorer's box;
but bi-lore he had finished the victors
leaped over the net and were shaking
hands with the vanquished. There was
rot much joy in the Eastern countenances
Lut the Western beams more than coun
terbalanced. ■
Then the crowd surged in on the Hardys
md to-morrow they will have swelled
hands— not heads.
The ladies' championship singles was
played out to-day between Miss Button of I
Los Angeles and' Miss Bee Hooper of Say
Francisco. This was the sole match 01
the tournament, and now Mi.-s Sutton is
the proud possessor of a very handsome
toilet set, the prize offered by -Mr. Douty.
The first set of the match went to Miss i
Hooper, with the .score 6— i. Miss Sutton
was slightly nervous and not able to reach ;
her regular game. In the second set she
improved, while Miss Hooper showed
weakness her returns losing their char
acteristic 'strength and sureness. The set
was won by Miss Sutton, 6—.'!. The third
set went to' the young lady, but not until I
every game was fought out to a bitter
iinish. The score was o—i,0 — i, and now Miss
Hutton is the champion lady player of the
Pacific Coast, Miss Jones being absent and
neglecting to defend her title.
The consolation doubles played to-day
resulted as follows:
Collier and Stauf won from Jones and
Arguello by default; McFarlan and Stew
art from Braly and Bell by default; John
sun and Argufllo lost to Farlan and
Stewart, o—4, «— 2; Hunt and Seager beat
Fatjo and Warburton. 3—6, 6 — 3, 9—7;
Bliven and Code beat Collier and Stauf,
(• — 4 i_6, ti — Finals: Hunt and Seager,
o—3, 6—l. 6—2.
The week of tennis culminated to-night
in a banquet tendered the Eastern men by
the Pacific Coast Association. Besides

by Jennie K'-i<i, ridden by young Loulller,
with Hohenzollern, Libertine and Nllgar
finishing m the cloud of dust left behind
by the winner, oi five favorites furnished
oil thr iriL-nu. but two earned brackets.
William Kleldwick had the track in rare
,v i condition, and those who looked for
last time were not disappointed. The
2:20 pace was lirst called, with Wild Nut
ling selling favorite over the field. For
the opening heat (laff Topsail drew the
pole position, but It availed the chestnut
horse nothing. Valeria soon headed the
bunch, with the favorite in close attend
ance. Straightened for home, Donathan
called on \\ il<l Nutllng and at the wire
won easily, with Myrtha Whips second
and Gaff Topsail third.
In the heat following Dick Havey
sprung a surprise with KoMet, going to
the front and beating Nutling out very
handily at the wire. The same man- re
peated the trick in the third heat, Wild
Nntlinp stopping to a walk. Then came
another change. The Myrtha Whips party
backed the odds against the mare from 5

strode Into first position, winning frc*i
the deposed leader without being pressed
Klamath made a couple of "jimmies"
during the' trip, but managed to finish
third. The next heat was a repetition
almost of the first, only that Toggles led
from the word, passing the judges five
lengths uhead of Klamath. Neernut, of
which great things were expected, was
third in this heat.
Of the four starters for the Vinctor

both 2 to 1 chances in the betting. Havey
made a perfect start and Libertine and
Hohenzollern at once made for the had,

move with Jennie Reid, disposing of
Hohenzollern at the wire somewhat easily

/Eolus Outfoots All Competitors
in Her Class and Carries Off
the Fourth Macdonough Cup.
The fourth of th* series of five cups pre
sented annually to the Pacific Inter.-lub
Yacht Association by J. M. Macdonough
I was won yesterday by Carl Westerfeld
■ nnd R. H. Morrow's sloop Aeolus, thl
ing the third Macdonough trophy cai
off by that speedy craft. In the thlrty
■ Bix-foot class B. !•'. Sugar's sloop Edna
d< feated her old rival. K. N. Walter and
M< Loughland brothers' sloop Bmbla. by
1 the handsome margin of 21 mm i •
! onds. corrected tlm.\ In forty-four-foot
class. F. K. Ames' Ella defeated B. Don >-
hop's Spe< Iwell, by 9 minutes and 40
I onds corrected time. Hoth boats carried
1 working sails only, and - dwell
ti wed a small boat throughout the race.
At 9 o'clock yesterday morning
' was a piping breeze on tin bay, so that
; the twenty-footers Kit ti wake, [dlei
i Petrel did not come over to the
\ front. The little sloop Doris sailed over
; from Tiburon, but founi
; stiff that she did not cross the si
j line. Among the twenty-five-footers l.
W. Hurndall's Merope was the only
starter. She covered the- short
and will receive the class pennant. H. ...
Simpkins' Mistral had been enti red in the
twenty-five-foot class too lan for her
name to appear in the list of enti - The
entry, however, was accepted and
put out from Tibtiron. but <!!■!
the starting line. In the thim
there were six starters, but only t
these finished.
The race lost a strong 1 element of inter
est from the fact that J. W. Pew -
ant, the most dangerous rival
Aeolus, was put out of the contest
minutes after crossing the startin-
The Aeolus came up to the line sh<:
before the signal to start was giw
slacked sheets and hovered along It, I
ally crossing It on the port tack
fifteen seconds after the whistle. X
seconds later the Presto and the Amij:
went across, and five minutes after the
whistle Gorter's Sans Soucl crossed. Th:
Truant and Mignon were the last to pass
over the line, about ten minutes late.
The Emma, on the port tack, bore duw:i
upon the Truant on the starboard tack,
and getting her bowsprit entangled in the
Truant's topping-lift, slewed her round s>
that the Truant ran head on toward the
wharf. Fortunately sh« struck Kanf 9
launch, which was moored alongside ths
wharf obliquely, and her peak having
been quickly dropped, did herself litt!. In
jury. She was compelled to retire frcrti
the race.
This was the first of a long- chapter of
accidents. In gibing around Blossom
Rock buoy the Mignon carried away tl^'
traveler from the mast and tore her main
sail also retiring from the race. H .\
Hurndall, brother of P. W. Hurndali.
owner of the Merope, fell overboard ami
was picked up by Frank Stone's Presto.
Just after she had crossed the finishing
line a winner the Aeolus attempted to put
about, but had not enough sea room ami
fouled the wharf. She was soon cleared,
having sustained no damage. A few min
utes later the Amigo. which had also com
pleted the course, was struck by a squall
and carried violently against the Powell
street wharf, under which her bowsprit
passed. The starboard bow struck the
piles with such force that the mast
snapped off at about the middle, bringing
down all the standing rigging. Fortunat?
ly the broken mast hurt no one and as
soon as the sails, spars and running rig
ging had been pulled aboard the tug Aleri
came up and took her in tow.
1 The regatta was full of incident and pro
i vlded plenty of sport to the spectators an !
j a good deal of excitpment to the yachts
i men. Only eight boat* finished, ami of
. these all but the M< at over th-r
middle course, estimated at fourteen nau
ti..;:l miles. A. .7. Young's sloop Clara was
the windward Btakeboat and w. S. <;r<r,-
. :'s yawl Arcturus was the leeward staki -
boat. The Merope salted the short course,
reckoned at ten nautical miles. TI
results are shown in the annexed table:
