Glen's Doubles Won by Percy
Murdock and Grant Smith
After Sensational Play
Little Champion Allows Her
Sister but One Game
in Their Two Sets
Epeclai IMepatch to The Call.
The tennis meet came to a close today
*nd it wa.s undoubtedly one of the most
\u25a0uccessful ever held in this part of the
State. The games drew several hundred
Epectatbrs each day and they witnessed
come clever tennis.
The finals in women's singles and men s
doubles were played this morning. As
•was expected Miss May Button carried
off the honors with ease. In fact she
disposed of her sister, Miss Florence,
much more handily than was expected.
The latter won but one game in two
sets The champion played her usual
strong game, and while her sister did
her best she was no matcn for her op
ponent. The score was 6-0, 6-1.
Percy Murdock and Grant Smith won
the finals of the men's doubles, taking
three sets out of four. The match was
a close and interesting one and was re
plete with brilliant rallies. All four fiid
come clever net work, smashing and vol
leying with great speed and accuracy.
Siiisabaugh was as quick as a flash at
the net, but his back court game was
rather weak. Warland, the ex-champion
of Harvard, played the most sensational
game of the four. He won many aces,
but fell down at critical times on easy
chances. Murdock and Smith had little
diftculty in handling his swift drives and
service. The winners were strong at the
net. but were rather weak in the back
court. Tile score was 6-4, 2-6, 6-3, 14-12.
Smith and Murdock took two out of
the first three sets handily and looked
to have the match well in hand when
they led at 4-2 in the fourth set. Sinsa
baugh and Warland braced at this stage
of the game and won three straight
games, giving them a lead of 6-4. From
the nir.th game on each player won on
service until Warland loet the twenty
fifth game. Smith served what proved
to be the last game and it went to his
eide easily. At one time during the set
einsabaugh and Warland had the odd
game and 40-0 on Smith's service. The
latter and his partner took the next five
points straight and evened up the score.
Murdock slipped and hurt his hand in the
last set, which caused him considerable
annoyance. The fourth eet was one of
the fastest and most interesting ever
played in this section of the State.
The winners of the five tournaments
were: Women's singles, Miss May But
ton- women's doubles t Miss Florence
Button and Mrs. Bruce; mixed doubles.
Miss Florence Sutton and Warland;
men's singles. Grant Smith; men's dou

lenge cup. Smith also r«ceived a gold
medal and a tennis racket, while Mur
dock received a gold anM silver medal

Jockey Club Stewards Bar Them
From the Oakland Track.
A mild explosion startled horse circles
last evening:, when It became known that
the stewards of the Xew California Jockey
Club had Informed the stable of S. M.
Williams & Co., of which Dick Williams
is trainer, that the firm's entries would no
longer be received. The .firm was ordered
to vacate the stalls held by them at Em
eryville track.
While the showing: in races of horses
controlled by the firm has not been alto
gether satisfactory to the officials at the
track across the bay, this action was no
doubt precipitated by the peculiar actions
of the gelding Arrahgowan in a race run
on Monday. Arrahgowan, with Eddie
Walsh on his back, ruled favorite for the
race in question and finished lengths be
hind his field. After finally passing the
wire the gelding bolted to the outer rail,
throwing his rider with considerable force,
although the latter fortunately escaped
serious injury.
Arrahgowan then ran away more than
three miles before being brought to a
standstill, and the claim was made that
he had been doped. This, however, lacks
Dick Williams is one of the best known
of Western trainers, having for years
been in the employ of Barney Schreiber.
Associated with him are his brother and
Jack Atkin. the widely known and popu-_
lar bookmaker.
Persons Involved in the
Britt-Gans Controversy
Have Nothing to Say
The parties involved in the Britt-Gans
controversy have followed the advice and
the example of "Silent Jim" Coffroth and
have nothing to say. The cessation of
hostilities may be only temporary, as it
will take but little to fan the slumbering
embers into flames.
The Fight Trust is just now trying to
elect a matchmaker, the candidates be
ing Morris Levy and Willus Britt. Eddie
Graney is with Morris Levy, while Cof
froth is stringing with Britt. When the
matter came up some days since, Cof
froth was ready to vote for Levy, but
each member of the trust was afraid to
trust the other and no. election was held.
Coffroth originally wanted the trust to
have the acts of the matchmaker ap
proved by a majority of the members.
Thus the matchmaker would announce
his intention of bringing together two
men. and if two other members approved
of his selection the match was made. This
was voted down by Graney and Levy.
Coffroth then changed his motion to
read that it would require a majority, to
reject a fight arranged by the match
maker. This was also rejected.
Britt manages his brother, and Sam
Berger, with MrrrJs Levy, !a interested
in the interesting Sullivan twins and in
Jack Cordell. If either was given unlim
ited power as matchmaker he could pre
sent his fighters against some easy op
ponents, and both the trust and the public
could grin and bear it.
There is a disquieting rumor about that
a match Is contemplated next month bo
tween Young Corbett and Britt. The only
reasonable excuse for this is that the
principals need the money.
When Al Herford entered the ring the
night of the affair between Britt and Gans
he carried two 44-caliber revolvers among
towels and other articles In a dress suit
case. What possible use he contemplated
making of them is hard to tell. The re
volvers were stolen from him during the
excitement of the night, but were recov
ered upon payment of a reward. The for
midable cartridges were extracted and
are still being shown as trophies by ume
of the fight fans ; at Powell and E'.lis
Representatives of Neil and Tenny will
meet at Manager Coffroth's office to
night to select a referee for the coming
fight. The betting is expected to open
with N<ll favorite at odds of 8 to 10.
Will Ask War Department
to Send Ships to Old
MONTEREY. Feb. 20.— The War De
partment will be asked to have the troops
which arrive and depart from the Mon
terey Presidio for- the Philippine Islands
loaded from the transports in this city.
At presenr the troops are taken to San
Francisco by rail and then loaded on the
transports. Monterey Bay \u25a0is one of the
finest harbors on the coast, and the Mer
chants' Association of this city has taken
up the fight to secure just recognition of
the harbor. The matttr has been present
ed to the War Department before, but no
action was taken. It is now believed that
the request will be heeded. •

Strange Death of Motorman
Puzzles Police of Los
LOS ANGELES. Feb. 20. — Jesse M.
Wilcox. a street-ear motorman, was
found lying on the floor of his room
on South San Pablo street after mid
night last night with a bullet' hole
through his heart. He was -barely
alive when neighbors, attracted by the
cries of the woman who says she is his
wife, reached the room and could make
no statement. The circumstances
point almost conclusively to murder,
and the detectives believe that if the
woman did not commit the crime she
knows who did.
The shrieks of the .woman which
aroused the neighborhood gave the
first intimation of the tragedy, no shot
having been heard. When the_ : police
arrived .the body of Wilcox was lying
on the floor, the feet toward the bed.
but no weapon could be found.
The officers left the woman alone in
the room for a moment, and when they
returned a large revolver was found
under the sheets of the bed. There
were no powder, burns about the
wound, which was large enough to ad
mit a man's three fingers..
The woman declared that she : -had
returned home late and found her hus
band dying and advanced the theory
that he had shot The autopsy
surgeon of the Coroner's office declared,
that Wilcox- could 1 not have fired the
*hot and then get out of bed.' The
woman has been in a constant condi
tion of hysteria, real or feigned, since
the shooting, and says she can make no
statement. " .'..".: .

Southern California Track
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20.— The racing at
Ascot today was marred by a pitiful ac
cident to Loyal ; Front, which broke his
right foreleg Just after leaving the bar
rier. The accident took place in full view
of the grandstand, and as the tanimal

the spectators. C. Van Duzen, owner of
Loyal Front, recently refused $5000 for
the son of Loyalist. He valued the colt

St. Francis Walks
Away From His
Dixie Lad Shows a
Surprising Form
Tocolaw and Misty's Pride met at equal
weights in the concluding Futurity course
sprint at Oakland yesterday, and the ad
mirers of the spio and span looking Ore
gon mare unloaded again.
Tocolaw, through a Marconigram from
the paddock, was reported lame, and
the ring fell for it, laying 11 to 10 about
the big chestnut horse. It proved no con
test. At the start Misty's Pride shot to
the front, with Knapp, who rode with
splendid Judgment, sitting still on Toco
law, holding a handful of wraps. Knapp
let the latter down the last sixteenth and
breezed, in first by half a length. Show
honors fell to St. George Jr. •
The heavy downpour of rain left the
track in a fearfully sloppy condition. But
two choices were successful.
Dr. Sherman went to the post favorite
for the introductory event, and finished
second. Graham on Matt Hogan, the sec
ond choice, trailed along- in second or
third position to the stretch, then cut
loose, winning easily. The first choice dis
posed quite as handily of Lansdown for
the place.
Another favorite, Mimo, went by- the
board in the six-furlong selling sprint,
which followed. The Reprobate, a ripe
one Just picked from the vine, went out
in the lead, with Rice up, and was not
headed. Mimo took place honors from
Mimon. Old Jerry Hunt was fourth.
There was no demand for anything but
St. Francis when betting began on the
third. Lloyd Fountain piloted the chest
nut colt, and he scored at leisure from
Frolic and Bantam. Jillette had no speed.
Tavora also made an indifferent showing.
Next ' came . the startling reversal of
Dixie Lad, which captured the mile and
an eighth selling fixture, at odds of 12 to
1, well and quietly backed. The first
choice. Orchan. was in front to the pad
dock, where Robinson on Dixie Lad came
with a rush, winning by half a length.
Dusty Miller ran third.
Wenrick, a winner on. the previous day,
was played to repeat in what speculating
was done on the mile run. Heavily.played
at 7 to 5, the five-year-old cripple finished
fourth. Mr. Farnum, carrying all sizes
and colors of commissions, reached home
nearly four lengths before Ray and Royal
Red. \u0084.'
To-morrow will be Derby day at
