AT ROWARDENNAN WHEN THE GOVERNOR SAID "NO FIGHT"
COMEDY OF ERRORS
LANDS FOR SEALS
Harry Sutor Pitches First Game, but
Contest Is Almost a Bloomer
."•. "=;• .WJien Danny Long's speed boys took
r;BL'.fall out of the Angels yesterday aft
v'crnoon at Recreation park they com
" .fbfted the "kiddies" who secured en
\u25a0•tranc<j to the bleachers free of charge.
;But to the veteran ball fan it was like
i taking a dose of salts to have to watch
I \u25a0j'.Kame of bush league caliber.
;-" There were errors galore. There was
." Eome erratic hitting. Thore was a lot '
,'. " €>t *enatlonal fielding, interspersed with
enough dump play to give Mr. Dooley
.' nkusea. But there was some satisfac
• tton to all. for Francisco had the
- # Toagr end of a 3 to 3 score when the bell
rang and the curtain came down.
'.. Naturally there were plenty of ex
cuses for that double quartet and one
:of errors that were scattered over .the
'•' "afternoon's play. The blame for the
\u25a0 \u25a0•\u25a0~:-*najority of them wa& laid upon the
="- xJ-lnd. It blew a perfect gale, and the
•:..-way it frisked that ball around was
• ":' feufflcient to make National leaguers
.'"'look. '"'look like corner lot players.
• : :. But th? errors would not have been
.-. .p<> apparent had they been sort of
..j' .spread around. Instead they came in
: • Punches, and no wonder the fans
.--• -.inpaned.
; jjSRRORS PROM ST.VRT
."Right at the very start there was a
•.".presentation made to Berry's men when
•.-Kid Mohler got his hooks on an easy
drive from Daley's bat and tossed it
".'•; ground like a hot muffin, instead of
\ lining it over to the initial sack. This
..• \u25a0 was followed by a f uzzle by Vl tt of
\u25a0' ißer'nard's tap, and a subsequent passed
\u25a0 • bail allowed Daley to come across with
i- the firfct Angel tally. Then it was that
• • everybody realized that the game was
•„ certain to develop into a comedy of
errors.
*-;BHt the contest improved in spots
, only to decline again at the most inop
portune moments.
* The Seals were made a present of a
.run in the opening inning when Vl tt
.. started with a walk, stole two bases
and crossed the pan on Tennant's two
bagger to deep right field. In the sec
v_,c>tid inning Melchior started away' with
f>. hit to right, *tole second and scored
* on McArdle'3 drive to phort left field.
' ir was then that the scoring ceased
for a' time, but the Angels got energetic
. in the fifth »pasm. but only because the
.Seals went into a sort of lethargy from
which they could not be awakened un
til two runs had been chalked up. Del
xnas walked and Warring was hit by a
pitched ball. The pair worked a clean
double bteal that might have looked
• good in Oshko»li. but It was entirely
:.* out of .place at Recreation park. With
'• * 'two out Bernard blazed one over the
*econd bag that sent the pair on bases
•\u25a0 tome comfortably.
V riTCHER KLEIN WILD
.' With the score 3t02 in the Angels'
• * favor the big crowd seemed dlsconso-
Slste. It was in the sixth that the ice
was broken. Pitcher Klein developed a
eort* of wildness- that is characteristic
of youngsters. He walked a couple
andthen endeavored to be careful," and
- Melchior sandwiched in a. hit. Captain
•Dillon donated an error and the entire
combination netted three tallies.
It might have been more, consider
ably more, had not Tennant driven a
fly to left field that made it possible
for Murphy to start a fast double'play.
It would have developed into a triple
• -had Howard moved a little faster and
*eot the ball to the plate an instant
sooner. It \ras the one great fielding
'feature that saved the game from being
'a real bloomer.
• Th« game wandered along .. rather
aimlessly from that point to the, finale,
with very little action to recommend lt-
It was a battle between the souths
paw and incidentally, a duel between a
youngster and an old stager. Sutor,
* that great left hand twirler, who was
•the sensation here two years ago,
pitched his Initial game in a Seal uni
'jyirm this- season. Stacked tip against
,&m was the boy wonder, Eddie Klern
""^Alameda.
Sutor pitched nice, consistent ball
and was never in serious difficulty.
* Klein was continually getting in diffi
culties, from which he generally failed
to extricate himself. He went so far
one tUne as to make a balk that proved
rather costly. But Klein is young, and,
although he has lots to learn, he has
the makings of a right clever pitcher.
All be needs is seasoning.; .
After the official scorer .had^ dallied.
with the figures a white he turned out

SPORTDOM ADRIFT
ON SEA OF GLOOM
Developments in the Big Fight
. Controversy Have Already
Affected Attendance
R. L. GOLDBERG
This city is enshrouded in gloom.
A stranger unacquainted with, the ro
cent developments .In -the Johnson.-
Jeffrles fight would believe that a na
tional calamity had gathered the west
ern v metropolis in its destructive em
brace "and tossed it far-out into the
sea .of hopelessness. The most con
servative citizens in this town look
upon Governor Gillett's action in' stop
ping: the fight as a deliberate blow-to
the welfare of the city. All sorts of
reasons are being guessed, for the gov
ernor's action, but no one seems to be
able to figure out what led the chief
.executive sto make this rash move.
Rickard himself has had no talk with
the governor and can onls' regelate his
actions according to the movements of
the powers that be.
; The: promoter told the writer over
the phone at a late hour last night
that he could do nothing until, he
found out what happened , in . the Kauf
man-Langford fight that is scheduled
to come off? this afternoon.
, "All I can say positively," said Rick
ard, "is that the flght will take place
on the fourth of July, either, in Reno,
Goldfleld or San Francisco, with the
chances very slim regarding the lat
ter city. I do not know what action
I, will take until -tomorrow night, ; when
I /will know the attitude of the au
thorities- toward the Kaufman -Lang-
UP TO POLICE CHIEF
.The buck seems to have been passed
to Chief of Police John B*.. Martin, who
has : promised the attorney^ general tha/
he will .stop the Langford-Kaufman
fight, and thus save the state officials
from calling out the militia.
Many : sports, see a faint gleam of
hope ; in ; the possibility of the chief of
police giving; the attorney general the
double -cross. "But it Is doubtful if
this would be of any benefit to the
flght of -; greater importance. The at
torney general' applied to -the superior
court for an order prohibiting the
Lahgford-Kaufmarij fight, but" was re
fused^ by ;; Presiding {Judge J. J. Van
Nostrand. The latter-claimed that he
could not: Issue an: injunction until he
had made sure that the contest was a
prize , fight in the legal sense of the
word. \u25a0;._-: - ;' , '•-.-. ., \u25a0 •
The situation threatens to "develop
into -a'; legal tangle that, the best law
