SEATTLE, "Wash., July fc (Special.)
Roach and Corbett pitched the same kind
of ball today, and Portland won because
the first run was a clear gift. Atz opened
the third with a ?xp-up that O'Connell
thought Frary would take, and the ball
fell at his feet. A sacrifice moved him
down and a hit scored him.
Seattle tied the score In the fourth, when
Kane opened with a three-base smack
and Frary sent him home with a double.
The next three hitters could not score
Frary. Portland won the game In the
sixth on clean two-baggers by Schlafley
and McLean, and after that Seattle was
never dangerous. Corbett's change of
pace had the locals popping the ball up
In the air.
Van Buren's spectacular one-handed
catch of Dashwood's hard drive was the
fielding feature of a game in which Port

Mixed Events Will Xot Be on Pro
grammes Hereafter.
Under a new set of rules of the Multno
mah Rod and Gun Club, and the Sports
men's Association of the Northwest.
which have been drafted by a special com
mittee, mixed events will be abrogated
from the programme In future events.
The committee, consisting of W. F.
Sheard. of Tacoma; T. B. Ware, of Spo
kane: J. P. Holohan, of Wallace. Idaho;
E. E. Ellis, of Seattle, and Abrams of
Portland, has decided that In all shoots
conducted by the association nothing but
20-bird events will be held.
Under the old system of mixed events
targets consisted of 10, 15, 20 and 25 birds.
It was often necessary to have one squad
shooting In different events at the same
time, thus mixing up the programme and
delaying others, who had entered for spe
cial events. Many of the shooters, be
coming disgusted at the long waits, took
down their money, causing the rearrange
ment of many squads.
The season for the Multnomah Rod and
Gun Club has practically been finished.
The next shoot of Importance, before the
Interstate shoot which will be held In San
Francisco. September 12, 13, 14 and 15. will
be a cracker event at Medford. Or., at
which 1500 added money will be put up
for Oregon shotgun men. The meet will
be held September S.
The interstate meet at San Francisco
will be the largest that has yet been held
on the Coast, and will attract shooters
from all parts of the Northwest and Cal
ifornia. It is expected that more than
500 entries will be made.

That Miss Sutton's triumph Is most pop
ular was shown when she defeated In

cumbed after a hard fight. The specta
tors rose In a body and cheered the young
woman again and again.

ment of the second set. and the Kentish
champion seemed to be winning, when

and her drives kept her opponent from
getting near the net.
In the ladles' open doubles. Misses
Thomson and Longhurst beat Misses Sut
ton and Morton, 6-3, 6-3.
In the doubles today the Britishers,
Smith and Frank Lcysley. defeated the

Bout Xear Aberdeen Not a Prizefight,
Declare Prominent Men AVho
AVcrc Present.
ABERDEEN. Wash.. July 6. (Special.)
Justice Fox. before whom the examina
tion Into the charge of manslaughter pre
ferred against Jack Donnelly was held
this afternoon, discharged the prisoner,
finding the evidence did not sustain the
allegation of the state that Donnelly
killed Ross in the mill at Electric Park
the night of July 3. There was a for
midable array of witnesses, all spectators
of the contest between the two men.
They were: State Representative Bcnn.
President Bowes, of the Chamber or
Commerce: John R. Lewis, ex-president
of the State Bank of Aberdeen; Council
man John Anderson. ex-Councilman
Morgan, Manager Crary, of the Gray's
Harbor Electric Road; United States
Deputy Collector Hood. Dr. Campbell, of
Hoqulam. who was a witness of the
match, and also the Coroner who held the
autopsy; ex-Mayor Anstio and others
quite as prominent.
The testimony went to show that Ross
and Donnelly simply engaged In a boxing
contest for points and that Ross acci
dentally fell In the 15th round and struck
his head on the ground and nt no time
had he received sufficient punishment to
have caused death. The only blood spilled
was In the seventh round, when Ross'
lower Hp was cut. The physicians were
tunable to give the exact cause of the
hemorrhage of the brain, but Intimated
that It was probably caused by the fall
and not from any punishment Inflicted
by Donnelly, the men seeming entirely
friendly throughout.
All the police officers of Aberdeen and
Hoqulam who were present testified that
It was a boxing match and not a prize
fight, and that there was no violation of
the state law In regard to prizefighting.
Donnelly was congratulated on the out
come of the examination by his friends

patch this afternoon from Mrs. Ross.
