BY W. J. PETRAIN.
After Portland had apparently sewed
lip yesterday's game in the first Inning
and again in the third, those Tacoma
Tigers came up so fast that it required
a sensational piece of baserunnlng on
the part of John Bassey, In the last of
te ninth, to assure Casey's hustling
band of a 6-to-S victory.
It was necessary for Bassey to score
the run because Umpire Jimmy Flynn
called Manager Casey out at the reg
ister in this inning; on a close play at
the plate in which Casey looked safe.
Still. Bassey's running, which was
really startling and caught the Tacoma
team entirely unawares, was the feat
ure of the game.
The little left fielder got on first when
his rap to Hurley was tossed to the
plate and converted Into an out for
Casey because Uncle Jimmy said It was
so. Bassey thawi stole second, and
when Mullin hit a Blow bounder over
Jesse Baker's head, which he beat to
first. Bassey dashed all the way home.
Tills daring play was successfully ne
gotiated simply because the Tigers
were totally unprepared, and Hurley's
relay of the ball to Catcher Bender was
too lute to get the Portland runner.
Seaton Loses His Control.
Tom Seaton. who made his debut with
the Coasters several weeks ago. opened
on the mound for Casey, but. after
Portland secured a lead of 5 to 2, he be
came unsteady. Casey replaced him
with Chief PInnance when Tacoma
came within one of tieing the score.
Tacoma put one over in the first on
a gift to Suess. Cartwrlght's sacri
fice. Hurley's out and Swain's infield
tap. which is recorded as-a hit.
Portland did much better, in the sec
ond half, but Tacoma errors helped
materially. Casey was on because Bre
slno fumbled, and when Jesse Baker
erred on Cooney's sacrifice bunt, both
runners were safe. Bassey executed a
neat sacrifice, advancing both runner.f
and Mullin hit to Bresino. Casey beat
ing the throw home, while Cooney
went to third. Mullin stole second
while Baker held the ball, and Staton
scored two runs with a saftey to right.
Total. 3 for Portland to 1 for Tacoma.
With two out in the third. Bender's
single and Klppert's two-sacker gave
the visitors another run. In Portland's
half Casey's lads increased their total
to G by scoring two runs on singles by
Cooney and Bassey and Garry's corking
two-sack drive to center.
Suess' Hit Clears Bases.
Seaton got into a bad hole in the
sixth, -when Tacoma scored two more
runs. Klppert opened with a single
and Mackln followed suit, sending Kip
to third on a hit to right field. Breslno's
out did not help matters, while Baker
hit to Seaton. who threw Klppert out at
the plate. Suess, however, did the
clean-up stunt with a two-sacker over
Bassey's head, and Tacoma" was one run
Seaton walked Cartwrlght, the first
man up in the seventh, and Casey der
ricked him for Pinnance. Hurley sac
rificed Cartwrlght to second and Swain
fanned, but Johnny Bender, who is hit
ting like a fiend, biffed one to left on
which Cartwrlght rode home with the
Casey opened the ninth inning with a
double to right and took third on a
rassed ball. Cooney was declared out
on strikes, and when Bassey hit to
Hurley. Flynn ruled the manager out
at the register. Bassey then stole sec
ond and scored his .sensational run. Tt
was grat baserunnlng and the kind of
playing that wins games. Casey's team
Is doing well, and without any accidents
to the players, should commence to
climb the ladder rapidly.

LOS ANGELES. Cal., May 12. (Special.)
Portland and Vernon would be playing
yet Jf the sun hadn't got weary watch
ing the game and dropped out of sight
after 12 red-hot innings at Chutes Park
this afternoon. The sun, however, was
the only spectator to get enough of the
kind of ball that was put up. At the
end of the 12th McCarthy called the game
on account of darkness, and not a man
on either side had made the circle of
Hundreds of fans were so hoarse when
they left the bleachers that they could
not talk about it and had to evidence
their contempt by making gestures with
their hands. It was nip and tuck play
ing from the beginning of the first in
ning until Umpire McCarthy reluctantly
called the game off. -
' Harkness Is' Star.
Harkness was the star of the game,
which was full of sensational playing!
The Portland pitcher allowed but three
hits in the 12 innings, and none of them
were at all serious. Harkness not only
put many of Hogan's players away on
strikes, but he fielded his .position with
skill that brought him more applause
than was accorded any other player dur
ing the afternoon.
Schiffer also pitched a steady and re
liable game, but was not in the class
with ;:is opponent in the box. The field
ing of both teams was well nigh perfect,
and there was something doing every
minute of the play.
Fine Catch Made.
Next to Harkness' game. Ryan's great
running catch in the fourth was a fea
ture. Brashear, first man up for the
inning, landed on the first ball pitched
and dropped a fly to short center. Ryan
was playing deep in center, but bad his
eye m the ball from the time- it left
Brashcar's bat. With a fast sprint he
made toward second and got under the
ball just in time to save it In the sixth
Olson n:ade a difficult stop of Haley's hot
one down tha line and then threw to Ort
like ligntning, catching Haley at the bag.

COLTS GET NEW OUTFIELDER
Fred Adams, of Sacramento, Signed
by Judge McCredie.
The first real- step to bolster up Pearl
Casey's Northwestern League team was
taken last night, when, after a confer
ence with Manager Casey, Judge W. W.
McCredie accepted terms with and tele
graphed transportation to Fred Adams,
the Sacramento club's extra' outfielder,
who !ast season played with Oakland
under the name of Jimmy Cook.
Adams Is one of the best outfielders in
the Pacific Coast League, and in addi
tion to his fielding ability is a good hit
ter and a clever base runner. He was at
liberty at Sacramento because Charley
Graham could not afford to carry an
extra Iran after securing Flanagan from
the Chicago American Leajrue team. The
former Northwestern Ieaguer has com

he could get a berth in the Northwestern
League, Graham would release him out

effect end the manager immediately in
formed Judge McCredie of the oppor
tunity to get a good player.
- Adams' record in the Pacific Coast
League gives him a batting; averag of
.219, having been 105 times at bat and
scored 23 hits. He i;tole eight bases and
has five sacrifice hita to his credit, and
was :-3iding off for Graham's team in a
number of games. In the Northwestern
League he can be expected tel hit much
better, for he will be assured of his Job
on the Portland team and will not be
worried on that acccunt. He Is a player
who can be utilized in either Infield or
outfield in caseof an accident to another
Portland also has lines out for another
player, said to be ar. outfielder from the
East, who Is rated as a star. If the deal
for this player is successfully negotiated
his name will be announced soon.

Metropolitan Circuit to Open
Without Bookmakers at
Belmont Park Track.
MANY CHANGES THIS YEAR
Smaller Purses, Fewer Race Days
and Higher Admissions, Features
or "Purified" Sleet TTnder
. NEW YORK. May 12. Horse racing on
its own merits racing for the excitement
of the sport and with bookmaking elim
inated, will have its try-out on the Met
ropolitan Circuit tomorrow with the open
ing of the 1909 turf season at Belmont
Park, under the auspices of the West
chester Racing Association.
There will be oral betting this year, as
the legality of this method 01 making
wagers has been sustained by the Appel
late Division of the Supreme Court; but
in order to keep within the law. no re
cording of wagers will be permitted.
Big Crowd Expected.
Adopting every means for increasing
receipts, which fell off as the result of
the adverse anti-betting legislation, the
old admission fee of $3 has been restored
at Belmont Park, but indications are that
with fair weather the inaugural tomorrow
will be witnessed by 20,000 persons.
As In former years, the Metropolitan
Handicap will be the chief feature, al
beit reduced In value from 110.000 to
$5000. Notwithstanding this, there are
14 entries for the event, which ranks well
with the entry lists of days gone by.
Changes In Season.
That part of the public that follows
racing finds itself particularly eager for
the opening, not only because the anxiety
concerning the experimental aspect of
things, but because of the lateness of the
season. Heretofore the racing season
has started a full month earlier, but it
was postponed this year, and the days for
racing have been reduced ta Tuesdays.
Thursdays and Saturdays. The meet will
come to a close June 2.
All the horses for the Metropolitan
Handicap finished their trials on Long
Island courses. Jack Atkln, looked upon
as a likely starter and a probable favor
ite, will not start. He was scratched, it
is understood, because of the almost
prohibitive weight of 129 pounds imposed,
and because bis condition Indicated that
he would run to better advantage in the
Toboggan Handicap Saturday. With Jack
Atkln out, it is the prevailing opinion
that King James, one of t!ie Hildreth
entries, will go to the post favorite, with
John E. Madden's Fayette second choice.

CASEY has the Tigers on the run, and
it is now up to the fans to commence
whooping it up for the young manager.
He has a clever team back of him and
deserves popular support.
The manner in which that Tiger outfit
comes up from behind is calculated to
cause "heart failure at times. That bunch
is not beaten until the last man is out.
Tom Seaton pitched good ball while he
was on the mound, but he became un

it is hard luck that such good pitching

everyone off the field who is not in uni

least Umpire Flynn, is that, while he is
efficient in every respect as far as deci

in bouncing the coachers for trying to

It was Hail Columbia! at the Mult
nomali Field yesterday afternoon when
Lincoln High School and Columbia Uni
versity crossed bats for the second time
this season. The score was 9 to 1 for
the Columbia team. Good batting on the
part of Columbia and errors made by
the Lincotns were responsible for the
Columbia started the ball rolling In the
first inning, and kept it going so fast
that the Lincolns could not properly field
it, and before the fireworks had ceased
Columbia had scored four runs. The first
four up reached first base on three errors
and one base on balls. The Lincoln boys
had not been practicing during the week,
on account of the' bad condition of the
grounds caused by the rains, and they
attribute their poor showing to this
Columbia played good ball. Only two
errors were made by them In the game,
and these were hard ones to field. Onu
of them, however, was costly and let in
a run for Lincoln. This was made by
Brace, who fumbled a. hot one while
Thompson was on third. No other man
got farther than second, and there were
only two who reached that corner.
Columbia made the fifth run in the
second inning and in the fourth two
more. The first of the latter Was a
beautiful drive by Dooley into the far
tennis court adjoining the grounds, which,
according to the ground rules, entitled
him to a home run. This is the third
made by Dooley for the season. Hay
wood and Davis, for Columbia, made two
two-base hits besides. Two more hita
and an error on the part of the Lincolns
were responsible for the other two runs
