LOS ANGELES, May 13. (Special.)
Two stinging .defeats administered by
Portland today set the Venice club
more firmly in last place. The club
lias won but two games since the be
ginning of Hap Hosan's fatal illness.
The team goes on the road this week
and with a change of environment
should do better.
Portland took the morning game 2 to
0 and won by a score of 6 to 3 in
the afternoon. The second game was
featured by Doc White's debut as act
ins manager of the team. President
Maier appointing him to the position
Just before the men took the field. He
celebrated the occasion by going into
the box himself, while the Beavers
celebrated it by pounding him for 14
hits. But while hit hard, the blows
were so well distributed after the first
inning that with any kind of luck he
would have held the Beavers to a
brace of runs.
lllarg Stopped Venetians.
Harry Krause was touched for three
runs in as many innings and then re
tired in favor of Higginbotham, who
held Venice to two hits in the re
White met with misfortune on every
Bide in the first and Portland piled up
a four-run lead. Davis had been re
tired, when Derrick flicked a weak
fly to left center. Kane and Wilhoit
failed to reafh an understanding and
the ball fell between them. Doane
walked. A Texas Leaguer by Bates
Tilled the bases, the ball lighting in
a safe spot with Purtell, Kane and
Wilhoit grouped under it. Hillyard
drove to left for what should have
been nothing more than a sharp sin
gle, but the ball, taking a sudden
bound, cleared Carlisle's head by 15
feet and went to the fence for a triple,
leaning the bases, Carisch singled
Hillyard home. He was thrown out
stealing and I.ober ended the round
with a fly to Carlisle.
KrnuMe Wobbly in OiienlnK-
Carlisle walked for Venice in the
first, and singles by Berger and Wil
hoit filled the bases. Risberg scored
Carlisle with an infield hit after Kane
had fanned and Hetling squeezed
Berger across. Purtell flied to Lober.
Wilhoit singled in the third and count
ed on a double by Kane. HiggiMbotham
took hold in the fourth, and Kisberg
alone was able to solve him.
Stumpf is hitting in great form. In
four times up he gathered two singles,
a double and a triple. Bates had a sat
isfactory afternon, with four singles
out of five attempts.
Umpire Phyle worked" both games
alone, Jommy Toman being off duty
because of the death of his mother.
t'orelfMkle la Orrat Form,
In the morning Coveleskie held
Venice to five hits. He was in trouble
but once. That was in the first inning,
when the bases were filled on him He
pulled out when Wilhoit- fanned and
Risberg hit into a double play.
Chech worked eight innings and held
Portland to one run, but this lone tally
was sufficient to beat him. The other
Portland score was made off Decanniere,
who worked the last inning, Chech be
ing removed In the eighth to make
room for a pinch hitter. .
Portland's seventh - inning run was
the result of doubles by Fisher and
Stumpf. Singles by Fisher and Stumpf
' and "errors by Berger and Risberg gave
the Beavers their final in the ninth.

V'mpire Draws Ire In Decision Which
Costs Oaks Game With Angels.
. SAN FRANCISCO. May 23. Los An
. pcles won a double-header from Oak
land today, cleaning up five out of the
seven games of the series, and went
into the lead of the league in a day of
baseball that was enlivened by a small
riot in the morning game at Oakland.
The first game was a neck-an-neck
affair that was finally won by the An
gels in the 10th 1 to 0. In the second
Inning 'the Oakland fans hooted a de-
' cision by Umpire Ed Finney, and they
kept up a roar of disapproval through
the rest of the game.
In the 10th. the home fans again dis
approved a decision by Finney which
gave the game to the Angels. After the
game hundreds of excited fans followed
Finney to the dressing-room. The po
lice had gone. As Finney stepped from
the dressing-room a woman slapped
him and a crowd of 400 or 500 followed
him tothe San Francisco train, jeering
and denouncing the umpire.
Los Angeles made another last-inning
winning in the afternoon game. Abies
had kept his hits scattered. When the
ninth opened it was 2 to 0 for Oakland.
But the Angels came through with a
hitting bee, slammed out threee safe
ones and put over the three runs they
needed to win. Scores:

On a heavy field yesterday at Recre
ation Park "Jude" Moreland. on the
mound for the Piedmont crew, dis-
played his class by walloping the Sell
wood team, 5 to 0, and striking out 16
batsmen. This record now ties More
land with Webb, also of Piedmont,
who has struck out the same number
of hitsmiths in a nine-inning game.
In the second contest "Red" Rupert's
West Siders handed Jack Randall's
Redmen a 7-0 shutout.
The feature of . the double clashes
was the showing made against the
league-leading Maroons by the lowly
Sellwood contingent. The Sellwood
boys were full of pep and the affair
started out to be a pitchers' battle
end was breezing along as such until
the fifth canto, when the Maroons fell
on Twirler Heiman for four hits, which
proved good for two tallies. Not sat
isfied with a two-run lead, they came
back in the sixth and hung up another
score. In the eighth they put two
more over. Heiman pitched a nice
game with the exception of the fifth.
He tightened in the pinches afterwards
and. looked good. Johnnie Newman
flivered a throw to first in the third
frame that started the Maroons ram
paging on the paths and it was partly
due to this that the two runs were
Ostorne. Rupert's flinger, was the
batting star of the double bill. He
soused the pellet for four singles out
of five times up. Rupert's boys looked
good in the contest
There will be no games next Sun
day in the City League. Decoration
day games have een arranged with
out-of-town teams for that date. The
Maroons will play at The Dalles: the
Redmen at McMinnville and the Mon
archs will probably go to Albany. The
Sellwoods have not selected their voy
age as yet, but have several offers.

Wfth more than S3 launches in the

Motorboat Club, held at Buttewille
Saturday and yesterday, proved to be
the -most enthusiastic ever held. A
light rain fell all yesterday, but it was
not sufficient to cause Mayor Scheurer,
of Butteville, to call off any of the' boat
As a special added attraction a sham
battle between two companies of mi
litia was staged on the hill back of
the town." The idea was to capture the
ferry, but before the river could be
reached the ammunition ran out, so
Mayor Scheurer ordered a retreat and

been slowly crawling upward. yt.
Louis and' Brooklyn have shown recent
improvement and Cincinnati is to be
considered as a contender.
In the American League the Yankees
had done well on the road until St.
Louis aided in ousting them from the
leadership of the league. Detroit only
broke even for the week. Boston has
disappointed its followers, and Wash
