Marse Garvin essayed to pitch against
the champions yesterday, but as he la
not yet at himself, he was bumped in
a lively fashion, for the Tigers landed
on his choicest shoots in clusters, the
result belner that they rang: up a total
of nine tallies, while the best the locals
could do was to shove four men over
The second innlngr proved the undo
ing of the local star, for in this chapter
the visitors rushed six men around the
circuit, principally assisted by safe
i hits. It seemed as though all the Tigers
had to do in this inning was to swing
wildly and the ball would land safe,
J and before they were finally retired- a
perfect avalanche of tallies was rushed
over the plate. Lynch started off with
a safe one to left, and Casey's attempt
ed sacrlttce was thrown away by Gar
vin, which advanced Lynch to third,
whence they both scored on Hogan's
single to left. Brown fanned, but Doyle
waved at a wild pitch and landed the
ball safely in left, after which a pass
to Sheehan filled the bags, and allowed
Nordyke to score two of them with his
double to left. Eagan's single and
McLaughlin's out made the total of
six for the inning.
Portland got one back in its half
on Householder's two-bagger and sin
gles by McLean and French, but further
scoring was cut off by a fast dduble
play by Casey, Eagan and Nordyke.
The Tigers pushed two more over in
the fifth on the squeeze play, when,
y with McLaughlin on third and Casey
on second, Hogan bunted, and both
runners scored, as the local .Infield
went up in the .air on the play, Hogan
even reaching first In safety, for Cates
failed to cover the bag when Van Bu
ran ran in on the bunt.
Portland secured two in its half, "when
French reached second on errors by
Nordyke and Casey, and scored on Cates'
triple to left, the latter registering a
moment later by a double-steal, in
which he was assisted by Jakey Atr,
who had been passed to first on four
that failed to cut the corners.
Tacoma scored its last run on two
baggers by Sheehan and Eagan in the,
eighth chapter. 'Portland's fourth and
last run came in the ninth, when Van
Buren beat out a bunt and tooksecond
on Hogan's wild throw. -whence he was
sent over the pan on singles by French
and Runkle Cates ended the game
with a long drive that was captured by
The main feature of the game was
the umpiring of "Slats" Davis, whose
work was exceedingly gratifying to the
local fans, after having witnessed such
clowns in that line as Perrine and
Klopf. Davis hustles the players all
the time, and is .always master of the
field, and when Fitxgerald tried to get
a little gay with him from the bench
the umpire promptly shut the player
up with a fine of J5.
Yesterday's game would have taken
at least two hours with either Perrine
or Bray handling the indicator, but
. Davis hustled the contest through In
one hour and 35 minutes'. Players and
wpectators do not have a chance to
question the base decisions of Davis,
for he Is on top of every play, and
therefore his rulings are not 'debated

AFFECTS THE TAX TITLES
WASHINGTON SUPREME COURT
HANDS DOWN DECISION.
Insufficient In Making Foreclosure
to Publish a General Notice to
All Persons Interested.
-ABERDEEN. Wash-. July 17. (Special.)
The Supreme Court has handed down an
opinion of unusual Importance affecting
tax titles. The decision was given in.
the case of A. J. Anderson vs. Emanuel
Lurati. ,Jt is held that the tax title se
cured by Lurati against the property In
volved is void.
Several years ago Lurati bought a tax
certificate against a piece of land in Aber
deen which was assessed in the name of
Samuel Bonn, as owner, but which really
belonged to Frank Decker. Lurati fore
closed his tax certificate, but did not
make Samuel Benn. the person In whose
name the property was assessed, a party
to the foreclosure action, and did not
serve him with notice. Neither was Deck
er served with notice, but the usual sum
mons against all persons Interested was
published. On this forccloure a tax deeJ
was Irsued to LuratL
Later A. J. Anderson, without knowl
edge of the tax deed, bought the land
from Decker, and upon learning of the tax
deed, brought action against Lurati to
have the tax deed set aside. This was the
case just decided by the Supreme Court In
The court holds that It is not sufficient
to publish a general notice to "All persons
Interested" in foreclosing a tax certificate,

Many Surprises In the Championship
Games Flayed on Multnomah
Eleld by the Best Mea
of the Coast. . ,
The first .lay's tennis for tho Lewis
and Clark and International champion
ships was played at Multnomah Field
yesterday. Herdman was the "hero of the
day and Reserved everything he got.
The first surprise of the day was
when Ewing defeated Joe Smith la
straight sets. Dr. Nunn followed with
another surprise party by "doing up

nad a hard time of it. and had- to strug
gle through three seta. McAlpln again
held up the banner of the "old men" by
defeating F. V. Andrews in straight
sets and he earned his victory. Great
interest is being taken in the play of
the two representatives from- Spokane.
Neither Walker nor McBurney have
had a hard match, but from the play
thus far seen, it is apparent that Spo
kane has sent a team that must be
The biggest surprise of nil was when
Irving Rohr defeated J. D. Hunter from
Victoria. The match was very long and
Rohr fairly outdid himself in his work.
His volleying was high-class and his
service hard ar.u accurate. Hunter was
undoubtedly off his game, for he led in
the last set a-;, but Anally lost it.
The Benham-Herdman ' match was
probably the best match of the day
from the expert's standpoint. Benham is
a clever, active player of wide expe
rience and with his partner Armstrong.
is looked upon as one of the strongest
Although very tired Herdman went in
with Ewing to do up the Los Angeles
team and succeeded in the attempt.
Great interest is taken in the playing
of Gorham, from Los Angeles who nas
not yet appeared in singles.
Farquhar gave Goss a lot of work, and
at one time was leadlngjn the games. He
won the second set quite easily and dis
played remarkable ability as a getter. He
passed Goss repeatedly and fought like a
tiger right up to the last. This Is the
first time Vancouver. B. C. has. ever sent
a team to Portland, and both Beecher and
Farquhar are good, strong players. As a
double team, they have had long expe
rience, and will make somebody work.
The results of yesterday's matches were:
Schwengers beat McGulre 6-0. G-2.
Gos beat Farquhar 7-5. 4-6. 6-0.
Beecher beat Gilbert 6-2, 6-4.
Ewing beat Smith 6-4. 7-5.

Unfortunately, Scheugers will not be
able to stay for the entire week, so that
he will probably not be able to finish in
ail of his matches. Schrengers is prob
ably the strongest man In the Northwest,
and at 4 P. M. he will meet Goss in the
Lewis and Clark championship. This will
probably be the best match of the week
in singles, and will be watched with a
great deal of Interest- Goss was defeated
by Schwengers last year In the Interna
tional at Victoria, so that he has been
waiting a year for a chance to have an
other go at him, and Schwengers is no
less anxious to get into the game.
At 3 'clock. Walker and McBurney will
play the Multnomah team, Bellinger and
WIckenham. This should be a line match.
Today's schedule follows:

In the first set there were six deuce
games, and in the 21st game deuce was
