Byron Hcuck was in rare form in
the first game of yesterday's double
header, letting- the Seals down with
three hits. The Beavers won, 3-0, and
lost the second game 3-1. They ended
the series with a record of five wins
and two defeats.
Good baserunning by Wilie and 'Will
lams' homer were the main reasons the
Beavers annexed the first game.
Penner and Johnson started the sec
end half of the matinee, but the Seals
hopped on Penner in the first and
scored one run on three hits. The
JSeals bunched three hits for two runs
In the fourth, after which Penner
Williams and Farmer must have
known the circus was in town, for they
both pulled off catches that entitled
them to a front seat at the three
Fitzgerald, the first man up In the
opening game, drove one to deep cen
ter that Ken ran back and speared
with one hand. In the second game
Calvo lined one to right center and
Ken raced in toward first, spearing
the drive. Farmer robbed Pick: of a
hit in the second game by tearing in
hack of shortstop and getting the ball
at his shoetops.
The Beavers hopped on Oldham In
the first inning. Hollocher doubled to
right and went to third when Wilie
hit to Pick. Dennie then stole second.
Willams singled and "Holly" scored.
Wilie taking third. Williams started
to steal second and Wilie hiked for
home, sliding safely under Baker.
The Beavers gathered their last tally
In the third, when Williams lifted the
ball over the right field fence for a
Pick singled over Hollocher's head
in the first inning, and after that
Houck had the Seal sluggers helpless.
In the first inning of the second
frame Fitzgerald scored on his own
clngle and two other hits. After that
Penner and Johnson started a pitchers'
battle, neither team being able to get
an extra base hit.
A fast double play Hollocher to
Rodgers to Griggs saved Penner in
the fourth inning.
The Beavers left last night for the
south. They will play Montague, Cal.,

PHILLIES SPEED UP
WHILE GIANTS SINK
New York Continues Indiffer
ent Playing, Losing 20
Points in Week.
PIRATES BREAK RECORDS
Chicago Remains on Top After Im
portant Series With Boston, and
Cleveland Gains on Leaders
With Five Victories.
NEW YORK, Aug. 26. The lead of
New York In the National League de
creased 20 points last week because
the Giants continun to play Indifferent
baseball, while Philadelphia won six
of its eight contests. The league
leaders won four games, lost three and
played a five-inning tie. In the Ameri
can, Chicago retains the lead by a
slightly better margin than at the end
of the previous week.
The series at Chicago between the
American League leaders and Boston
was the most important of the week,
but the three games between the
Brooklyn and Pittsburg Nationals were
equally as interesting. In all. the
Superbas and Pirates played 45 innings,
enough for five full games. The league
record for the longest game was
broken Wednesday, when the Superbas
triumphed over Pittsburg by 6 to 5 in
22 innings. Pittsburg also set a new
major record by playing 59 innings in
four consecutive extra-inning contests.
The play of McGraw's men continues
erratic, and is not as finished as dur
ing July and early August. Philadel
phia, on the other hand, has shown
marked Improvement in the last two
weeks, due especially to steady pitch
ing and opportune, although not ex
tremely heavy, hitting.
The four-game series between Chi
cago and Boston for possession of the
American League lead ended in a tie,
with each team winning two games.
Cleveland gained on the leaders bv
winning five out of six, its only defeat
oeing on faaturday at the hands of New
York. Detroit also showed improve
ment over the previous week and won
five out of seven.
New York showed no lmnrovement
and Vashington, during the week, won
oniy one game out of six in comparison
with their success of the week before.

CITIZENS DEMAND GRAVEL
Railroad to Be Asked Why Road Ma
terial Is Delayed.
CANBY, Or.. Aug. 26. (Special.) A
mass meeting of the citizens of Canby,
Barlow, Aurora and Hubbard was
called at Aurora on Thursday evening
to ascertain, if possible, why the South
ern Pacific Company could not furnish
cars for the hauling of gravel for the
paving of the Pacific Highway be
tween Canby and Hubbard. The con
tractors have the road torn up and
crews are ready to work, but they have
not been able to have the gravel deliv
ered. As a special gravel is to be used it
must be brought on barges from St.
Helens, Or., and then shipped by rail
roads to the distributing points.
Mayor Sadler, of Aurora, was elected
chairman; Arthur W. Graham, of Can
by, secretary. The chairman appointed
the Mayors of the four towns, with Dr.
B. F. Giesy, of Aurora, Dr. H. A, Ded
man and O. Slyter, of Canby, who,
with S. Benson, are to interview the
Southern Pacific Company.
