SPORTING NEWS BONNER LETS LAST GAME SLIP AWAY Ostdiek signalled Bonner for two or three wide ones in order to catch a runner on the bases yester day, and after that the 19 year old phenom couldn't settle down, and the lowly Turks overcame a four run lead, and then annexed two more, giving them two wins for the series. That makes three out of the last 13 games that the Turks have won. Nordyke drove In four rum aud then came in himself, but with the exception of Cooney and Davis, not another player got a safe hit. Although the Heavers made five vrrors in the coast game, still they JOHN LTELL HOW IT HAPPENED NT RENO The "noblest Roman of them all" la In town today, doing a spieling stunt at the Pautages, telling crowds three times a day how it all happened at Reno. John L. and Jake Kllraln will always be remem bered for their famous mill, but it is of more recent history that Sullivan is talking on this tour. He says that the battle last July 4 did more to kill the fighting game than any other 10 fakes that ever were staged. The next time a white mar juts a good chance to knock out Jack Johnson, Sullivan says the purse will be about $20,000 to $30,000. NOW THEY SAY THEY'LL SHOW 'EM IN A TENT After Mayor Pratt proved to be an adamantine obstruction to the fight picture man. Eugene Levy, and the Hlllynrd council wouldn't allow the Kono views to he shown at Jones' hall, the promoters got desperate and threatened to leave town without giving the local peo ple a chance to see the picttlres.

The Heavers have just dropped two out of the last 14 games, so the battle this week ought to be well worth witnessing. The attendance last week wasn't very hefty, but if the fans know what's the proper caper they'll turn out better this week to watch the contenders than they did during tho past seven days to look at the tail enders.

SEATTLE All This Week and Sunday at 3:15 Phone Main 2578 308 Post Bt. Rambler Bicycle Store RAMBLER, IDEAL AND DAYTON BICYCLES SPORT SPICE DIAMOND GOSSIP A queer play came up in the seventh inning Saturday, when Akin was at bat. He sent a hot one to Netzel, who ran in for it, but just missed scooping it up. The ball struck his leg, caromed off and shot about twenty feet to the left, dropping Into Cooney's hands. All this hapepned so quickly that Akin was thrown out at first by a quick snap from the little Hebrew. A fifty-three point lead looks pretty safe when there are only 30 more games to be played, but there's a chance for Bob Brown's outfit that gives this lust home series an element of uncertainty. The Heavers can tie the Indians by winning eight out of nine. They'll have to go some to break even, though, the way the local lads are slugging. Shea and Cartwright will be back in today's game. They were both in uniform yesterday, but the team was able to get along with out the clippies. The habit of the fans of rooting for the tail-end team doesn't please the Indians. They object strenuously to the support the root ers gave Seattle yesterday as, since Tacoma let the Beavers win, It was just the same as if the Canucks had beaten the Indians. One player said that the team wanted to feel the sympathy of the wins was all theirs. Umpire Huss Hall left for the coast last night. Requiescat in pace. We have Frary with us today. This Vancouver series is to be a nine game one. There'll be two double-headers, one on Labor Day, and the other probably Sunday. On Sunday both games will be in the afternoon, but on Labor Day the first game will be in the morning and the second after the circus. Nordyke was directly responsible for all five of the Reds' runs yes terday. He scored two in the first with a double, and two more in the third with a triple. He ended up by scoring on Davis' liner. Killllay is to pitch this afternoon. He's beaten Gardner four straight times. Can he do it today? Here's hoping!

Merritt's city hall paving combine —is having hard sledding these days. Tuesday night Astor street property owners arose in arms and said that they had been bunkoed when Hassam was ordered on that street, Indiana to Buckeye. They filed a remon stranQe, that, if it is heeded by the city council, will likely put Ilassam to sleep on Astor street for a while at, j[«ast. Property owners on Stevens street signed for paving with grani toid concrete, but when the con tract turned up for letting it was concrete that could be made only by following the Hassam patent. The board of works at first tried to insist that Hassam concrete had been petitioned for, but Friday the original filing record at the office BAKERS WILL FIGHT COOKS (By United Press Leased Wire) SAX FRANCISCO, Aug. 29.— Stragetio maneuvers of the army bakers aud cooks, promising sev eral interesting skirmishes between the flapjack turners and the bis cuit greaters, will commence at Atascadero, Cal., on September 13.

Property owners in the Fourth ward, north and west of the court house have suddenly discovered that there was a move on foot to '< pave about a mile square of that territory with Hassam. The pro moters of the deal had managed to get some of the hustlers in the ward interested on the plea that it was a great public benefit. On the discovery of the deal a storm of indignation has been aroused, and Hassam will have a rough road to travel in its effort to get through the Fourth ward job. hospital corps also will put in a fortnight of outside training.
