April lo.-No rac inc between the Shamrocks was held to-day. Apart from the bad weather, the chal- lenger's mainsail requires overhauling. It set like a gunnysack during yesterday's trial. Designer Fife and Saiimaker Ratsey superintended the alteration. Fears are again expressed that the fault lies partly with the gaff and boom. Many people are of the opin ion that they are too light to do good work in a hard breeze. BRISTOL, R. L; April 13.— With the mainmast and most of its rigging in place and the bowsprit attached, the bow of the cup defender Reliance has settled and che floats with the bow much lower than the after part. Even when the main boom is on beard, and the boat attains her designed balance, it is thought she will still be distinguishable from the other ninety-footers at a distance by a dip for ward. It seems certain she has a lower freeboard than the Constitution by at least six inches. The riggers are at work rigging up a double bobstay, which is somewhat of an innovation in cup defenders. . An extra set of spars, including the gaff, boom and mast, exact duplicates of the new ones now on board, are being made for the .yacht. SEATTLE, April 15.-Seattle had a bat ting matinee to-day, driving Harmon out of the box in the sixth inning. Stanley led with four hits, being closely followed by Hurley and Babbitt.

In the third inning by scientific bunting, mixed with heavy slugging, they piled up nine hits and nine runs. This did not In any way discourage Kostel, who essayed the next Inning only to have his delivery found for five hits, while four more runs crossed the plate.

IT was simply no trick at all for Au tolight to win the mile and a six teenth handicap at Oakland yester day, and in his present form it seems he will take a lot of beating. The handicapper's 10& pounds rested lightly on the back of the brown horse and at 8 to 5 he won from Position with Ivy Powell "hauling in his jib." Bonner, on Charley McCafferty's recent acquisi tion, tried to steal the race, but the mare could not stand the clip she cut out and barely downed Dlamente, f the only other starter, for third place. Those whp strung their coin on the chances of the favorites again returned home short of weight, as besides Auto light Tufts was the only other choice that showed to advantage. away from the post poorly; Milas lacked speed; Miracle proved a false alarm, and Dlvina should have won, but didn't because Sheehan laid away his "bat" too soon. Sterling Towers, with Hildebrand, an apprentice rider, in the saddle, made a' runaway race of the opening sprint. The mare went to the post at 8 to 1 and ran home nearly two lengths ahead of the 60 to 1 shot Yo-No-Se. George Dewey« was third. Alaria, the favorite, was away poorly and had no chance. All three starters— Larry Wilt, Tufts and Expedient— were Quoted at 16 to 5 In the betting on the mile and a furlong number. It turned out a two-horso race between July Gyp and Tufts. The last named gelding had Bonner in the saddle and- outgained Ravino through -the stretch, winning by a head. I O U, with J. T. Sheehan up, t6ok show honors. The price about Mllas crept from ff'to 5 to 9 to 5 in the betting on the third re citaland his showing justified the slide. After Cousin Carrie had done with her stunt Aunt Polly with Bell In the sad dle,' passed the judges a length before the tardy Oriana. Dollie Weithoff dropped into the show. The winner was a 6 to 1 chance. - From the accounts of his work there was nothing to the fifth race but Miracle II, if the different trainers were listened to.. Jim Curl's gelding was backed from 5 to 3 to 1 favoritism, but did nothing to warrant the plunge, j Jim Hale, ridden by "Monk" Shceharu led from start to fin ish, winning in a romp from The Pride and^Ada N. j E)ivina, the 9 to 10 favorite for the con cluding, mile selling run, lost to Bard Burns in a neck finish.

LOS ANGELES, April 15.-Jlmmy Whal en broke the spell to-day and not only defeated the Angels but shut them out. After fifteen straight victories Los An geles lost to San Francisco by the score of 6 to 0. It was a pitchers' battle up to the ninth inning, with a slight advan tage in favor of Whalen in point of stead iness. San Francisco scored one in the sixth on Arrellanes' single over second and Lynch's grounder between short an<l third. No more runs were made until the ninth, when Newto'.i weakened and al lowed three hits, hit a batter and threw wild to third base. When he had pulled himself together five runs had crossed the plate.

It was a gala day for hitting the ball over the right field fence. During the game six went out on Ninth street for two bases and nine doubles were scored altogether. This was due principally to the fact that Pflester used wonderful speed and nearly every time the bail was hit it went over in the direction of the right field fence. Aside from this the game was an Interesting one and con tained some snappy, fast baseball. Kane of the visitors carried off the hon ors in batting for the day. He secured four safe ones'and two of these were good for two bases. Mas Muller, the Butte left fielder, was also handy with the club, knocking out three doubles over the right field fence. The Miners from Butte lay In wait for McClosky's talent yesterday • to wipe out the opening day Insult, so as soon as the trouble began it could easily ~be seen San Francisco was all in. The Miners were in earnest in everything they did, even to the making of errors. The home team seemed stricken with a fit of awe at the rush of thevisitors and they gave up the fight ere it was half over. Score, 8 to 3. The grounds were in much better shape than on opening day, but the fielding was not up to the standard of the first day's show. The Butte team committed eight errorsfcmany of which were costly and let in runs. Strange to say,, the home team played with a clean mistake column. It was their utter lack. of ability to land on Pitcher Gay that lost them the game/ Gay was in grand form throughout the struggle. He had an assortment of curves that would fool the best batsmen in the business. Besides this, his change of pace was utterly bewildering and his control was good at every stage of the game. In addition to all this, Gay was kept exceed ingly busy In fielding. He accepted eight of his ten chances. Jack Pfiester, the southpaw from Co lumbus, was on the firing line for the home team and he was one easy mark for the Miners.. They^gave him an awful beating and never for a moment did they case up. In all Mr. Pflcster was soaked for a total of fourteen clean singles, which brought in runs whenever rups were needed. Stolen bases — Brashcar 2, Van Buren Vi;r neaux. Two- base hits — Johnson.

Up to the end of the eighth inning It was a 2 to 1 score, yet a couple of hours were consumed In the contest. The slowness was chiefly due to the dilatory actions of the batters In taking their places .at the piate. The "next man up" was cover in readiness. He leisurely traversed the 100 feet from the bench after the preceding sttckroan had gone down the line to first. The Portlands still had their ill-luck with them. They forged ahead la the seventh to the delight of the majority of the onlookers, who always sympathize with the weaklings, but their Waterloo came in the eighth, when Engle lost his effectiveness. In that inning Gorton sin gled and Lee sacrificed. Devereaux reached first on an error by Vigneaux. Engle made it a full house by furnishing Fillman with a pass. A single by Brash ear brought Gorton home and a sacri fice by Baxter performed a like service for Dcvereaux. Murdock put the finish ing touch on Portland's discomfiture by scoring Fillman and Brashear on a sin gle. In the fifth inning Andrews, angered at a close decision at first, told Umpire Mc- Donald it was the referee's place to run Gown to the bag to witness the play. The suggestion was bluntly made and An drews was retired to the bench. >yig neaux then took third and Harlow donned the mask. (Pacific National League.) Won. Lon. Pet.
