The locals trimmed their lamps in the seventh inning 1 yesterday -afternoon, straightened out a few of Comedian John son's twisters and before "Youngey" set tled" down three of the pretzel shooters 1 had crossed the rubber, and Cal Ewing's star players were a few points further away from the coveted pennant. \ It was a 'well played game from start to finish, -marred by but one error, made by "Truck" Eagan in the <; initial inning. San Francisco played a clean, snappy game and managed to hit the ball when hits meant runs. The Dudes, on the other hand, failed to bunch their hits, so here hangs their tale of woe. " Each side went out y in something like one, two, three order until the fourth in ning, when. the Dudes started in to make a showing. .Drennan managed to obtain a free pass to first,- but was caught in try ing to steal second. Dunleavy came next and connected with one of Jimmy's pet curves for a beautiful three-bagger. Whalen lost his ey<J for just a minute and hit Strieb, forgetting that the "Dutch man" was married. . Eagan next sent a slow one to Schwartz, bringing Dunleavy in • but going out at first himself. - "Chim mle der Whale" proved ' too much for, "Mother" Ix)hman, who ended the good work by striking out. Oakland lost . her batting eye after this. inning, securing no more runs.". ' ¦ .. --..-.¦. Uncle Henry's' men secured their first tally in the sixth. Schwartz wa« hit by a pitched ball, took second on Pabst's sin-, gle and went to. third onKrug's sacrifice. Nordyke sent a high one to .Strieb, who accepted it, but Schwartz came home on the ! throw in. Reilly then took first on four balls, stole second but died there on Graham's out to Dunlea\y.- ¦ San Francisco settled down to work In the seventh. Whalen got free transporta tion. Croll bunted but was called out for interfering with the ball, Pete Lohman going to sleep in- the meantime and letting Whalen go to second on a passed ball. The Germans in this inning took kindly to Joh-nson's offerings. Hiidebrand tore off a single, outting Jimmy on , third. Schwartz also managed to hit safely, bringing the San Francisco itwirler in. Pabst . next straightened out one . of Youngey's kinks for a two-cushion swat, bringing Schwartz and Hiidebrand in, but going out at third by trying to stretch it into a triple. Krug then made an eat;y out, retiring the side. '. . '...-'•;, Both pitchers were in good trim. "Whalen held the Dudes down to three hits, . one of which* was a three-bagger. The Ger mans, got five safe ones from Johnson, three of them being secured by Pabst. The, series -will be decided to-day.

" Dewdrop was a 7 to 1 chance for the stake before he won his course from vulcan, but the long going that he had In getting the decision will change his price. For a good outside chance Libera tor figures well. He is in an easy posi ticn on the card and has nothing to meet until near the end. Winners in the second round look to be Norah.

Backed down from 4 to 2 to 1 he holds first place among the favorites for the stake. Some little play was made on Wedgewood to beat him, but from the time the dogs left the slips until the wUit<! flag -went up Geary's speedy courser took the lead, keeping Wedge wood from scoring and making him look somewhat like a. selling plater. In the rundown of the open stake at Union Park yesterday the dogs on the long end in the betting had things much their own way. In all there were but ten ¦upsets recorded, though three at 5 to 1 and as many at 3 to 1, helped to make it unpleasant for choice players. -Sisquoc made his reappearance after an enforced layoff; He was slipped with Warship and the wise ones placed their faith in his ability to take the flag to the extent of giving 5 to 1 that he could out do his opponent. After an undecided Sis quoc was led to the hare and failed to keep Btep with Warship. When the flag went up he was on the short end of a 4 to C score, the single point given him being hardly earned at that. Achilles, at 6 to 1 against him. got the decision from Pleasant Girl and Boney Boy at the same oqqs beat Bad Boy, who shirked his work and by allowing the kill to go to his op ponent lost the course. The 3 to 1 shots ¦were: Liberator beat Brutus; Honesty beat Roman Athlete, and Silver Lyon beat Johnnie R. Coursing Prophets Make Geary's Dog Their Choice. PICK PALD ALTO FOR THE STAKE SAN RAFAEL. July 20.— In one of the most exciting finishes that has ever concluded a. paper chase of the San Rafael Hunt Club, Frank Glass won the prize for gentlemen and Miss Annette Bradshaw that for ladies to-day. The honors of the ; chase belong to Miss Bradshaw, who probably would have beaten all competi tors had not her filly bolted when the race Jn the straightaway for the finish Sags 'was on. At that she passed the flags close to the leader, and her magniri cent riding won the congratulations of all observers of the chase. The riders and their friends gathered in the grounds of the Hotel Rafael at 3 o'clock, and preparations for the start were made. Louis Hughes, with two enormous bags of paper suspended over his shoulders, dashed away in the capac ity of "hare" and twenty minutes later the hotel's dinner gong summoned the "hounds" to the scratch. Then the voice of Ward McAllister was heard: "Gentlemen, are you ready?" Then, as the riders bunched on the driveway: "Away, and may the best man win." • And out the riders sped, full twenty of them, across Petaluma avenue, following the line of Vjoss papers" left by Hughes. The course lay to the west, over the Lu cas ranch, along ridges and through quiet valleys for about eleven miles. The finish came on the meadow of the ranch of A. P. Hotaling, ¦where two flags were planted. . After the paper chasers left, all of the guests and sightseers drove out to the Hotalingr ranch-. It •was a hot, dusty drive. Ward McAllister, as master of ceremonies, headed the procession and maintained order. Arriving at the grounds the flags were duly planted and everybody waited. Soon the Hunt Club riders came into view on the distant ridge. . «r < Then the excitement began. It was a beautiful sight. In the steep descent Miss Bradshawtook the lead. Urging her mount to reckless speed down the slippery hill, her daring ride gave her a 200-yard lead of the'entire party. This advantage she lost, however, on reaching the level,: as her thoroughbred filly bolted from the paper strewn trail and the others thundered on past her. As the riders came to the lin<i between the flags, Miss Bradshaw dashed In with the leaders. "After crossing the line her filly collided with the horse i ld- den by Graham Babcock. and the young lady was thrown across Babcock's horse, with her foot caught in her. own stirrup. Mr. Babcock caught her," as did Judge Martinelli, who ran to her assistance. It was a miraculous escape. • - Mrs.-- Farns worth, who rode with Miss Bradshaw, came in first, but passed outside of tho flags, not haying entered the chase. The" flrstTfpur- to finish- •were: -^ Frank Glass, Grahlsn Babcock,: Miss Bradshaw and Miss Jeuries. SIDELIGHTS OX THE SAN RAFAEL.
