T-JE opening game of Scottish bowl ing at the new Oakland bowling jreen was played yesterday by the San Francisco Scottish Bowling Club and the Oakland Scottish Bowling Club. The new bowling green, at Twenty-sec ond avenue and East Fourteenth street, is in splendid condition for a new one, the ground being dry. whic\ helps the players. The game opened at 1:30 in the after noon and was witnessed by several hun dred spectators, who were attracted by the novelty of the game, though it has been played for hundreds of years in Scot land. The Scottish bowling has no resem blance to the common bowling game played on the alleys; it resembles more the game of shuffle board or the Scottish game of curling. The game Is played with four teams to a side, four players compoatng a team. At one end of the rink, which is 12$ feet long by 20 feet wide, a small white ball called a jack Is placed, and each player rolls a ball, which is shaped like an orange, as near as possible to the jack. When each player has bowled all his balls those nearest the Jack are counted bo that if one team has three balls nearer the jack than the other side the first team makes three points, whereas if the other team has one ball nearer than either of the three of 4he first balls the first three balls are counted out and the other side gains one point. Twenty-one points make a game. The opening game was won by the San Francisco club, the visiting team scoring 84 points against 53 points scored by the Oakland club. Electric lights will be placed on the new green, and in the future the game can be bowled in the evening as well as the afternoon.

Sept. 9.-Captaln Wringe, who sailed the Shamrock III in her races against the Reliance for the America's cup. to-day announced that he had de cided to make this country his home in the future.

Opening Game Is "Won by the Men From San Francisco. BOWLERS PLAY ON THE NEW GREEN A Manchester. England, man Is suir.sf a woman fcr breach of promise, ar.d she is suing him on the same charge. They •won't agree to a compromise. singles was extremely exciting and al though Alfonso Bell, the challenger, won in straight sets, it was close from start to finish. The score was 6-3, 7-5. 10-S. Bell played a magnificent game and at the net was invincible. The first set was won quite hnndlly by the new champion. In the second and third sets the great struggle came. It was evident at the out set that Freeman was not in the best "of condition. He appeared to be afraid to let himself out. He did not play his usual steady, careful game, but seemed inclined to win a point or lose It on one stroke. He was not up to his last year's form, but Bell showed great Improvement over his work a year ago. The fact that Free man about half the time failed to follow in his service showed that he was a little afraid to exert himself. In the second set first one led and then the other, until Bell finally won. 7-6. Freeman had a fine chance to win the third set, but Bell made a beautiful stand and pulled up from 5-6 and 0-40. The ex champion needed but one point to win the set and had three chances to do it. Freeman weakened perceptibly in the last two games and Bell annexed them quite handily. The loser deserves great crdit for making such a plucky fight, con sidering his condition and the heat. In the forenoon Miss May Sutton de fended her title successfully against her sister. Miss Florence, the tournament winner. The champion won three straight sets, but the leser made a better show ing against her clever sister than ever before. This makes Miss May's third win and the challenge cup becomes hers for good. Both players stayed in the back court and consequently many lengthy and in teresting exchanges occurred. The little champion drove to perfection and the few times she played at the net smashed with great speed and accuracy. The score was 6-1, 6-3, 6-2. After the Bell-Freeman match a special match was arranged between Miss May Sutton and Clarence Griffin, a promising youngster. Discussion has been rife as to whether Miss Sutton could beat one of the best of the second class men. Many of the south erners claim that Miss Sutton can beat all but about ten men on the coast. The local men do not agree with them. The match yesterday gives a line on the champion's game as compared with the games put up by the second-class men. The match was won by Miss May Sut ton only after three very close sets, con sequently she can hardly be ranked among the first ten players. The score was 6-4, 1-6, 6-4. Prizes were presented at 9 p. m., after which a dance was held at the hotel, winding up one of the most successful tournaments ever held on the coast. Color Photography Successful- After more than 4000 experiments Dr. R. Neuhaus ha3 reached results In color photography which were warmly applaud ed at a recent lecture and exposition given by him in Berlin. The chief remaining defect is that an exposure of ten to fifteen minutes is still required. France Advances Interest Bate. The French Treasury has further ad vanced the rate of Interest on its bills for two months to less than six mon-tta from Ztf to 2 x i per cent. That for one montli to less than two months, ar.d for six to twelve months. Is unchanged at 1 per cent.

Griffith, who is charged with hav ing attempted her life at Santa Monica last week. The papers were filed at a late hour last nlsrht. but the fact was not made public until to-day. Colonel Griffith is out on ball and to-day being a legal holiday no action could be taken, save to serve a restraining order upon the defendant to prevent his making any disposition of his property, pending a set tlement of the suit. The complaint charges extreme cruelty extending over a period of about four years and culminating in the shooting affair Thursday, September 3. which nearly coat Mrs. Griffith her life. The plaintiff applies for the custody of her rifteen-year-old son Vandell and prays that Colonel Griffith be required to pay her alimony in reasonable amount and a sufficient sum for the support of her son. As co-defendants in the suit the State Bank and Trust Company, the Pacific Art Tile Company and the Eriswalter Land and Water Company are named in the complaint. The reason given by the attorneys of Mrs. Griffith for this action is that the defendant Is supposed to have large deposits with the bank and is a con trolling stockholder in the two companies named. By making the corporations co defendants disposition of Colonel Griffith's property is estopped. From present indications Mr*. Griffith, the victim of the shooting affair, will re cover. XEW YORK. Sept. 9.-^The examination of Joseph Waherman. a dealer Jn leaf to bacco, to-day before United States Com missioner Ridgeway on a charge of buy ir.g smuggled tobacco brought out the fart, if the confeslsons of two sailors ar rested Monday are to be believed, that there are a number of tobacco merchants In New York engaged in illicit traffic In tobacco. For many months the treasury agents have been investigating what they felt assured was a -well laid conspiracy to smuggle into New York leaf tobacco used for wrappers on expensive cigars and bearing a very high rate of duty. It can be purchased in Holland for SO cents a pound and easily disposed of In the United States for 52 50 per pound. Much of it is smuggled, it is declared, from The Netherlands by sailors, particularly the men in the engir.e and stoke rooms, and the Federal cQicers have been unable to get their hanci^ on the receivers or pur chasers. Sunday night two treasury officials fol lowed two sailcprs of the Kocnigen Louise, giving the riShle-s of Thome and Schoon. who, they say, delivered smuggled to bacco to Joseph "Waherman.

The Commissioner held Waherman for trial in Jl'.OO bail, which was fur nished. Waherman oenied the charge and insisted he -was the victim of circum stances. The sailors were paroled. TnOLUiTN-E.
