Eleven innings of quarrelsome baseball,
feny hearties, and Portland won, 5 to 4.
Eleven innings of the good old National
game into which was tossed the punkest
Icind of baseball, with splashes now and
then of playing that roused the crowd to
the highest pitch of anger, a frenzied de
sire for Umpire McCarthy's gore, and then
to the maddest kind of gleeful joy, when
the Bugs, in the last half of the 11th can
to, pushed three runs over the pan and
won the game. For three innings the
game had the appearance of settling down
to a pitchers battle between Baron Jacob
Thielman and Heir Schmidt. Then one of
the big things happened In the fourth in
ning. Schmidt walked Spencer, and he
stole second, and scored on Nadeau's hit
to loft field.
After this the war broke out. Old Peter
Lohman, dressed In a $4.9S store suit, un
loaded a package of Oakland billingsgate
at Umpire McCarthy, and he was ordered
off the ground. Peter began to weep, but
McCarthy couldn't see his tears, and he
signaled the big policeman. Lohman tried
to laugh the matter away. The cop
couldn't see the laugh, either, so he was
marched out of the grounds. Shortly after
this Castro took a playful tug at the um
pire's protector because that official called
lilm out on a third strike that was a yard
wide of the plate. All the time McCarthy's
decisions were raw and woefully bad. Not
only the players were camping on Mc
Carthy's trail, but to add to his misery
the crowd handed him a choice lot of
What General Grant said about war
broke out in the sixth inning. Dunleavy,
Schlafley and Kruger bunched their hits,
scoring two Tuns. Oakland was really
entitled to but one, but those Commuters
had. McCarthy buffaloed, and after he had
called Schlafley out he switched his decis
ion and called him safe. This run gave
Oakland a lead of one, and it was the
.means of the crowd wanting to murder
.McCarthy. Then the scrappy Dunleayy
cursed the umpire In seven kinds of lan
guage, and he was benched. When Schlaf
ley made his slide for the plate, Stark
'was at bat, and instead of calling the
Oakland catcher out on the third strike he
allowed him another chance. He fouled
out to Steelman, but the crowd was so
thoroughly worked up over McCarthy's
change of mind that they began to pour
Into the diamond. Cushions were tossed
at him, and the curses that flew about
would have shamed a gang of dock wal
lopers. Strategy Ties the Score.
For two innings more the game pro
gressed, and then Bill Hurley, by a clever
3)lt of strategy, tied the score. Spencer
had walked, and had stolen second. Hur
ley dumped a bunt along the flrst base
'line, and Strieb pounced upon it wolflshly.
Hurley knew he was out. Instead of
waiting to be tagged, he turned and raced
onadly back to the plate. This action
threw Strieb up in the air, and Instead of
going back and touching the bag, he
raced after Hurley. In the meantime
Spencer, was going Into third. Strieb saw
ihlm and made a -weird toss of the ball to
:Tevereaux and Spencer came home. This
was all for three Innings.
In the Hth a fielder's choice to Kruger,
and McCarthy's refusal to call Strieb out
when he struck out, put two on the
perches ready to score when Devereaux
slammed a two-bagger Into left field. This,
coupled with Stark's' single, sent two runs
in, and with this lead the crowd gave up
If they did, Manager Dugdale did not
Instead, he took the firing line. Nadeau
singled, so idld Castro. Beck, who had
taken. Campbell's place the Innlncr nre
vious, clouted the ball almost to the fence.
Ganley thought he had it, but the ball got
loose. This filled all of the perches, with
no one down. Schmidt gave way to Mos-
kiman. Drennen's single scored Spencer
and a wild pitch scored Castro. Raymond
went down easily, and Thielman forced
Beck at the plate. While Spencer was try
ing. Stark let a ball get away from him
and Drennen sneaked under Moskiman at
the plate witn the winning run. Port
land's winning the game is what saved
McCarthy from a troublesome trip home.
Tonight the teams go south.
Team Walks Off Diamond.
HUBBARD, Or., Aug. 2S. (Special.)
The Canby baseball team walked off the
diamond today in a game with Hubbard.
The score was 11 to 8 in favor of Canby
at the end of the seventh inning. An
argument arose over a blocked ball, and
the Canby nine withdrew, -and Charles
Piatt, of Hubbard, declared the score 9
to 0 In favor of Hubbard. The batteries
were Calif and White for Canby, and
Manning and Kinzer for Hubbard.
Sellwood Team Was Defeated.
CLATSKANIE. Or., Aug, 28. (Special.)

SHOOTING WAS POOR
HOQUJLAM, Wash., Aug. 28. (Special.)
Hoquiam defeated Aberdeen today in a
one-sided game, by the score- of 6 to 2,
and cinched its grip on the Southwest
pennant, which it has won in a walk this
year. Five hundred fans came down
from Aberdeen to cheer their pennant
winners on, but to no avail, for the Pip
pins were outplayed and outhit every in
ning. This has been a very successful sea
son for the Southwest Washington League
and although no money has been made no
team has lost money. Hoquiam has won
the pennant through gopd, hard playing,
in which team work has been an impor
tant factor. .Besides ttem work several
young players have come to the front
and will no doubt'be In demand next sea
son by the big leagues. Hoquiam has won
13 games and lost four, . giving them a
percentage of 763.
The Perfect Gentlemen jumped to the
front early In the season and were never
headed, but maintained their lead
throughout the season by splendid playj
ing. The .game today was easy for Ho
quiam which got three runs In the first
inning. Baker reached first on an error
of Hlckey's, Schwarz reached first on a
fielder's choice, Bottlger hit, scoring two
runs, and Phllbrick scored Bottlger on his
two-bagger and Dad Schwarz got a -home
run In the third over left field fence. Ho
quiam added another In thd fifth when
Bottlger reached flrst on an error and
scored on Phllbclck's hit to right In the
sixth Halbert reached flrst on an error
and scored on Schwarz's two-base hit
Aberdeen's only runs were made in the
fourth and eighth Innings on flukes.
Emerson, who pitched for Hoquiam, won
his sixth successive game, being in won
derful'form. He struck out ten men and
.allowed three hits. He was effective
throughout the game and was given ex
cellent support by his team. GalLskey, for
Aberdeen, was batted from the box and
Belt, who succeeded him, was hit hard.
Aberdeen played hard but was out
classed. They had Imported Keating and
Wllkins, the two best men in the Central
team, but It was Hoquiam's game. The
members of the Hoquiam team are: Emer
son, Phllbrick and Law, pitching staff
and alternate second basemen; Bottlger,
Halbert, Schwarz captain, Ford, Baker,

University Games at a New Park. -
UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, Seat
tle, Aug. 28. (Special.) General Man-,
ager Sigrist, of university athletics,
has decided that the coming foot
ball games will be played at the
Madison Park Instead of the Ath
letic Park. The decision will undoubtedly
lose for the Washlngtonlans the support
of many of the leading athletic men In
Seattle. Slgrlst feels, however, that their
support will not amount to the sum that
will be saved through the exchange of
The Athletic Park management refuses,
to allaw the grounds to go tor less than
10 per cent of the gross receipts. Ten per
cent will likely amount to nearly $1000
during the season too large rent for the
park. The Madison-Park grounds can be
secured for a nominal sum.

Portland Lacrosse Players
Lose to Victoria,
SOME v COMFORT IN DEFEAT
Team That Beat Them Is Equal to
the Star Organizations . of the
East Game Was Fast and
Hidden somewhere in the legends of the
American Indians who played lacrosse
long before the white' rnan came to this
country, there may be an account of a
game in- those wild days when goals were
two mlle3 apart, where young braves were
taught lacrosse to get endurance and
speedln battle, and where the killing of a
warrior or two didn't matter very much.
But those contests were outclassed
from a scientific point of view, in the la
crosse game played yesterday afternoon
on the East Side baseball grounds on
Hawthorne avenue, between teams repre
senting Portland and "Victoria, B. C. For
50 minutes both teams fought hard to
score. But no result followed, so evenly
were the opposing players matched. Then
somebody cut open Mellls upper lip with
a lacrosse stick and the doughty British
Columbia boy was forced to retire. To
even up, Lawrence, of the Portlands, re
tired, and tjqth teams played eleven men
a side. The last quarter was only five
minutes old when Stan Peele, of Victoria,
scored a goal, and six minutes afterward
his mate, Morris, performed the same
trick. Portland 0, Victoria 2. That's the
way It finished. Portland was white
washed by the better team, and largely
because Victoria has played longer as a
unit has better lacrosse sticks and most
of her players took the healthy precaution
to wear rubber spikes ln.thelr shoes. They
didn't slip and flounder through muddy
places so much as the Portlands, and
were able to keep their feet Under la
crosse rules, no iron spikes are allowed
in players' shoes, but there's nothing
against rubber spikes.
As for the audience. It was a large one
that -comfortably filled the - grandstand
and a portion of the bleachers, and
throughout the contest everybody main
tained a lively interest When the play
became close, or a good play was In evi
dence, the spectators were swift to ap
plaud. It is not a matter of astonish
ment that the Portlanders were defeated,
for they opposed a lacrosse team that, is
the equal of many an Eastern star organ
ization, and there were' just the right
number of veterans in the Victorias to
bring- out all the lacrosse talent in the
For the Victorias, Peele is the star
player, and his passing, catching, cool
ness and headwork are admirable. Ho
wa3 king of the attacking forces, and a
hard man to stop. He, Galholm and Mor
ris fairly peppered Dr. Braden's terri
tory with shots, but success didn't arrive !
until the fatal fourth quarter. Again and
again Peele was beaten off, but once he
caught the ball with a lightning swing
when ten feet away from the Portland's
goal, and sent In a bard shot that Braden
could- not handle. Score one for Peele.
Then the latter and Morris made a de
liberate stand. Peele caught the ball
near the fence back of the Portland goal,
and sent three shots in swift succession
directly in front of the goalpqsts, where
his cohorts were as busy as bees. So
straight were Peele's shots that they
seemed to come out of a gun. One of his
shots was caught by Morris about 30 feet
away from the goal, and bang, went the
ball against the net.
Belfrey is a flnely-bullt player. He
stands five feet seven Inches tall, and
weighs 195 pounds.' Many a shot did ho
and Lorimer ward off. Both these men
played a game worth going a long way
to see. Mellls played well until he was
hurt; but was outclassed by Wallace,
Portland's great center player. Wallace
is speedier and cooler, and turns and
twists like a clever acrobat. His run
ning record Is 100 yards In 10 seconds, and
if he can be Induced to stay in this city
he will be a valuable man for the Mult
nomah track team.
At the flrst face-off the Portlands had
the best of the game, and they kept
Lorimer, Belfrey and Snider on the Jump.
Hague had a pretty run shortly after the
flrst face-off, but his shot went wide.
Thurston also had a try with a swift ball,
but Lorimer blocked In time. Then Vic
toria found the way to their opponents'
goal, and Braden saved three times in
succession in gallant style. In warding
off a strong shot however, he slipped
and fell, Injuring his right leg, which be
came slightly lame.
Mike Did Not Shine.
But what of Mike McCance? It was
not Mike's day, although he tried hl3
best Mike seemed, out of condition and
his close checking lacked aggressiveness.
Somehow he couldn't keep the ball very
long without some other player jumping
at him, and in the muss the sphere went
to someone else. Mike's shots at goal
were also In hard luck. Sam Hague
played a most plucky, aggressive game,
and is one of the coming star players, for
he Is faithful and unselfish to a degree.
Time and time again did Oddy save for
his side, and It was hardly possible to
take the ball away from him. A. L.
Stewart was resourceful at point, and
worked hard. "Doc" Brown exhibited
good stick work in flrst defense, but
Lynch was not so strong. Hawes was
hardworking and quick, while Lawrence
made a number of pretty catches and wa3
i a hard man to pass. Thurston and Jen
nings made quite a number of attacks on
the Victoria citadel.
Fate, however, seemed against the
Portlandsln shooting. Try as they might,
they were so hard pressed by their op
ponents that they could not get many
chances to send In. straight shots, and had
to be content with underhand shooting,
which was not half so effective. It was
too much on' the wobble. It seemed to
be a pity that Wallace, with his great
speed, could not send In more shots, In
stead of- passing. Probably ho was too
well watched! It is- creditable; to the
Portlands that their training stood '. them
in-frnod stead, and at the end of the con
test they did not look so fatigued as
their opponents. It is curious, though,
how the Victorias managed to score to
ward the end of the game. Their, com
bination play Is superb, although they are
riot better than some of the Portlands.
" Some Comfort In Defeat
The latter have solace in. the thought
that they have played a tie game with
the great Victorias, who latterly beat
them by two goals, and no more, ,in a
game that was anybody's in the first
Among the spectators were two rnen
well-known in the lacrosse world, Pro
fessor Foster, " "father of sports"' in
British Columbia, and P. J. Lally, of the
Lally Lacrosse Company, Cornwall,. Ont.
Mr. McLennan, the referee, Is a new
comer to Portland, and acted In a fair and
impartial menner. His decisions were
equitable ones. The Victorias say they
have enjoyed their- visit to this city.
Through the kindness of the Multnomah
Fair Association, the Victorias were
treated to an afternoon's racing at Irv
ington Park Saturday, and through the
kindness of the Portland Lacrosse Club
they were the guests of Cordray & Rus
sell at Cordray's Theater last Saturday
Those who missed the lacrosse game
yesterday missed the game of their lives,
and such a one may not possibly be seen
here for years. The players played man
'fully through all the tricks of the trade,
and as only rivals can. They didn't mind
the, rain that fell in torrents throughout
two quarters of the game, and stuck to
their work like true sportsmen.
