BEAVERS WIN AGAIN
AND VERNON LOSES
IX)8 ANGELES. Oct. 11. (Special.)
There la little doubt now that Port
land will win the 1911 pennant. Mc
Credle's men never played better ball
than they are now and Vernon aeems
to have gone all to pieces. The lieav
era easily disposed of Los Angeles
today and Vernon dropped another to
Henderson outpltcbed Torer and the
Heaver outplayed their opponents In
every department of the game.
When tha reault of tha Oakland
Vernon game, disclosing the rout of
Happy Hogan'a men, was posted on
the score-board the Lo Angeles fana
cheered the Beavers, apparently recon
ciled to the belief that the Coaat
League pennant'will go to Portland.
Portland's victory today and the de
feat of Vernon gives McCredle's team
a lead Of 17 points over the Villagers
In the contest for tha Coast champion
ahlp. The camp of McCredie la gay
Captain Dillon had announced that
"Flame" Delhi, hia ' crack twlrler,
would try hia deft hand against Port
land today but he disclosed such a
wtldness while warming up for the
contest that the Angel leader changed
hla mind and dispatched "Bill" Toner
to the firing line. x

The property constated of alx dia
mond rings, which were tied up In a
handkerchief. They were inadvert
ently dropped into an open sink about

five feet deep In places, and probably
it will require a day or two before It
Is dug up. If the rings are not found
before that time.

The defendant alleges that she lives
at Santa Ana, Cal., more than 1.200

to make a proper defense It will be
necesaary for her to bring six wit

expense of at least $200 each and one
witness from New Tork at an expense
of more than $300. She says their .
testimony is necessary to refute
charges of misconduct on her part
made by the plaintiff. The affidavit
