-The O*.ks had a lot of luck -when they
went against the Angels yesterday
afternoon, otherwise they would have
been banded the big package, instead
of getting away with the game, 4 to 3.
After having it tucked away in their
i «£t pockets the Oaks indulged in some
more of that bone-headed baseball that
they have such a liking for. In a
twinkling the leaders put a couple of
runs over, and. had they been playing
tticlr usual pa me with the stick, the
contest would have \>een settled with
• out furthc-r ceremony.
There was hardly any reason why the
southern stars should have scored at
all.-but'so long as their opponents in
sisted on. slipping them a few runs
they probably figured that the only
thing to do was to wade In and grab. :
" Hftd they«n£one a bit stronger at the
right moment the finish would .have
been different.
Oakland started the scoring in the
first, with two to ,the bad. Van Hal
tren and Eagan picked off safe hits and
Uien got away witb a nice double
steal, both scoring on the two» bagger
that- Heine Heitmuller ripped over
third. Xo more runs showed until the
f.rth. Then Haley beat one to third.
' was sacrificed along by Van Haltren
iind arrived on Eagan's long single to
right
.That made it 3 to 0 for Oakland, and
it looked 'like a shut out until the
rough work showed in the sixth. Car
lisle landed on Haley's boot and a sim
ilar play a moment later gave Cravath j
a life. Brashear flied to left and Smith
made the prize bone head play of the
day with a wide throw to second, when |
he could have come in and handed the
ball. This advanced Carlisle a bag and
he .went all the way around on Ellis'
single to center. His running mate.
Cravath, beat it home while the Oak
lend outfield was busy giving chase to
Dftlnias* double to deep left.
The Oaks saw their danger and
started to get the run back in their
hAlf Of the . same inning. Both Bliss
and' Bigbee soused the ball safely and
Devereaux sacrificed them along. Then
Wright dumped one down in front of
tae pin. Burns picked up the ball, but
. in. his anxiety to nail the' runner at the
pUte he pegged it so wide that Eager \
could not handle it, so Bliss registered
the run.
Even in the ninth the Oaks were not
out -Of the woods. Ellis opened with a
double and. Wright passed Deimas,
after putting two strikes over without
a fealL Eager forced Ellis at third, but
Bernard came in with a drive into right
thit chased Deimas home. Carlisle
ended the game by skying to Bigbee
when a hit would have tangled It up.

YOUNG THOROUGHBREDS
IN A RAILROAD WRECK
Part of the Hildreth Ship
: ment Left i Behind in •
Colorado
• After having floured In a* train' wreck
In Colorado,' two carloads of valuable
yearlings, shipped by S.C Hildreth
from New York,'.? in • charge ;of John
Lowjp, arrived' at the: Emeryville race
track yesterday and .: were ; assigned
stalls in "the two stables ".that will be
required to shelter the .big: strinar^of
thoroughbreds that Hildreth • will race
here. . A third carload, which; it was
found necessary to leave behind tem
porarily on account of the smashing of
the car,, probably will arrive today.
Trainer Lowe is hopeful that none of
the youngsjters will show ill effects" of
the. accident, but .is. .by no means cer
tain that this" will be the, case, rrfe is
anxiously awaiting : the appearance of
the car: to which those left behind , were
transferred after : ; the 'mishap.
Hildreth; is expected to leave NeT(
Tork-about the middle of October wiU
the remainder of his stable, including
Montgomery, his * candidate ' for : th<
i Burns \ handicap, for Iwhich* •" he paic
J13.000 at the Herz dispersal salea few
days ago, and his^candidate forth*
California derby, the 530,000 Star Shoot
colt. Uncle. The Hildreth stable wii:
shelter 29 yearlings and 16 horses 01
more mature age when all shall havt
reached Oakland. Hildreth is negoti
ating for the : services of a competeni
jockey to do his riding during th€
winter. Notter/: one of the best boys
of the year, . is said to be
whom he has his eye. ... Pending' Hil
dreth's arrival John Lowe will" develoj
the yearlings.
President "Williams' action' in adding
Martin Nathanson'to the list \of officials
of the Oakland track will not resultjin
the ' displacing of Horace Egbert as
handicapper and. . programmer, as many
turfmen have been led to believe. Sec
retary Percy Treat of the New Califor
nia jockey club is authority ifor; the
statement that Nathanson will ;\u25a0 succeed
Egbert in the stand as an associate
judge, but that Egbert, who is: slowly
recovering, from the illness that com
pelled his premature return from Seat
tle before the close of the racing sea
son there, will continue to discharge
the duties of handicapper.
_It is reported; although not officially
admitted, .that John. Dinue, who has
acted heretofore as entry clerk, pad
dock judge and timer, will be relieved
of some of his responsibilities. It is
believed probable that Martin Nathan
son, who has achieved a' splendid repu
tation as a competent and popular offi
cial, will discharge the duties of entry
clerk. -
Dr.S H. E. Rowell, who trains for
Thomas, H. Williams, will ,. have full
control of Jockey "Walter Miller during
his California engagement ; next winter
and'will select hismounts. Rowell is
desirous of disposing of the contract
he holds on Jockey Tommy Sandy,
which has two, years to run from Jan
uary 1 next. The Williams horses that
have been campaigned in the east will
be shipped. \u25a0 back to Oakland \u0084at .the
c?iose: of the Brighton "meeting, October
5i 'Aside from the good colt Firestone,
the stable is not" of much account at
present, but before it leaves ; the east
it is likely to be; strengthened by sev
eral good horses, for which Williams is
now looking.. The- full list of -.the

ST. MARY'S ENTHUSIASTIC
OVER THE RUGBY GAME
Captain '; McNeil Expects to
'Send Strong Team Into
' the Field
William Unmack
'^Captain McNeil and several mem
bers- of -the St! Mary's college Rugby
tftini'. attended , the weekly . practice of
the" Barbarians^ in Jefferson hall Tues
dayvrilght. Special scrum formations,
screwing ot the ; scrums, "-dribbling
rushes and other f ormatlons^were gone
through for the benefit "of the college
boys... They paid close attention to
everything ' that was shown them and
seen^ed;to.ba apt scholars at" packing up
the .points of the game. . "
The* enthusiasm for Rugby is great
throughout "the colleges.. This "seems to
be the. case not only at St. Mary's, but
at 'every school or college that has
taken;up the' game. The enthusiasm
gains .ground at. each-daily practice.
i Captain McNeil says that he has some
first class material- and expects to send
a.good team Into the field on" October 5
against" the Stanford freshmen. Stan
ford has agreed to let the collegians use
four? of, the Barbarian ;players. . This
naturally will strengthen the team, but
Stanford will have the benefit of at
least E a .month's training and schooling.
; jArrangements virtually have been
completed by St. Marys--' and Nevada
university for a match early in Novem
ber.;:,^ iv -•-,'-,
/California university's football car
nival,, to be held at Idara park on Sat
urdiy,*is attracting public Interest." Use
of the: park has been donated to. the
varsity for the entire day arid allsorts
Of stunts are to be brought ,oft. It Is
probable a game will be, played by two
class i teams during the., afternoon. A
burlesque on.the* recent push ball game
Is scheduled.
"This is the largest scheme of this de
scription the students have ever, tried,
and from appearances.it is T^rtain to
be >a success. The proceeds will form
a fund fyr the special training of the
football jquad.

without sufficient explanation that all

-'"Thai outside influence has ' been

suggests November 4 and 16. -The v lat-<
