SAX FRAXCISCO, May 25. (Special.)
Portland and San Francisco broke even
on today's double-header. As a result
the Seals took five of the seven games
with Portland, while Los Angeles took
all seven from Seattle and thus got
a little tighter grip on first place.
In the morning at Oakland, Tom Sea
ton pitched like he used to for Phila
delphia, beating Portland 5 to 1, and
allowing only two hits. In the afternoon
Casey Smith helped beat himself and
Portland won by a score of 5 to 3 in
Portland won two games In the
series and Lieutenant John C. Oldham,
formerly the fearless fisherman of the
Seals, won both of them. John C. had
narrow escape here this afternoon,
but he simply, sat tight and let the
Eeals beat themselves.
Three Walked In Ninth.
:'. Tom Seaton was a curly wolf in Oak
land in the morning. He is charged
with two hits and both of them should
be charged to the rough ground. One
hall took a crazy hop andL skidded by
Corhan and another jumped 10 feet
over his head as he squatted to take it
between his feet. Those two fluky hits
scored the only run made by Portland.
But in the ninth with two hands
down. Tom suddenly lost control and
walked three men in a. row, thereby
nearly causing the death of Doc Strub,
who has a weak heart. "With the bases
full and George Maisel up, most any
thing was liable to happen, but Maisel
drove a liner at Crandall and the agony
The Seals whipped themselves in the
afternoon, concentrating a lot of bad
work in the tenth inning. A pass to
Wisterzil in the fourth was converted
into a run on a bunt which Walker beat
out; Maisel's sacrifice and Siglin's
Portland Ties) In Eighth.
Joe Connolly busted a two-bagger in
the sixth that scored two and the Seals
were in front. The score was tied by
Portland in the eighth when Rader
oiencd with a double and Wisterzil folr
lowed with a hit to right. Walker also
pot a hit, but there was no more scor
ing. Neither side counted in the ninth,
but Casey Smith began the tenth badly
by walking Walker. He then nipped
him off first base, but Corhan chased
him too long and he slid back to safety.
Maisel bunted and all hands were
Fafe when Smith not only fumbled the
ball, but threw wide to first base. Then
Smith passed Siglin, filling the bases.
Elue drove the ball against the right
field fence scoring one, but was picked
off first base himself. Cox lifted a
fly to center which scored another, and
then Koehler dropped a dinky hit into
left which put a third run over.
The Seals tried hard in their half
of the 10th, but could not tie the score.
Both Smith and Oldham pitched great
ball until the 10th, and then Oldham
walked off with the victory. Scores:

do any boxing. Dempsey was eager
enough to rip into his sparring part

bade it because the newly-constructed
ring has not been padded.
Women and children of the Bay Shore
district are showing more interest in
Dempsey's work than the men. The

POCKET MATCH IN "FALL.
Local Billiard Sharps Told That Ex
pert Is Willing to Derend World
Title on Local Tables.
Portland followers of the various
styles of billiards have had the oppor
tunity to witness a number of exhi
bitions, match games, champions and
challengers in action the past season,
but if the plans of Harry D. Green,
manager of the Rialto billiard parlors,
and J. J. Parker, president of the Ri
alto corporation, do not go amiss and if
the word of Frank Taberski, pocket bil
liard champion of the world, is good the
Portland fans may see a real honest to
goodness world's championship match
Frank Taberski is really a champion
without a challenger. During the three
years which he has held the title he
has defended it against all comers and
won over them every match. There Is
not a man in the country at the pres
ent time who is demanding a match
with Taberski. They are all practic
ing. Taberski. who plays a game which
Is much more interesting than balk
line for the average sport fan to watch,
travels around the country and bars no
one. He does not charge them a cent
to play him and docs not look for any
J5000 side bets.
Of course once a year a big match
is held with Taberski meeting the best
pocket billiard players in the world;
but any one by the wayside who thinks
that he can trim "Tab" can Just step
up in whatever city he is in, and "Tab"
will take him on, asking no questions.
While in Portland last week, appear
ing in matches with the leading local
players. Taberski assured Manager
Green of the Rialto that he would give
him first consideration for the big
championship meeting next fall.
The fuss over the three-cushion bil
liard title is raging merrily in the east.
In a recent match at the Friars' club in
New York ftob Cannefax won the cham
pionship from Alfred De- Oro. After
the match De Oro nearly raised the
rafters, alleging that he had been
"beat" out of the crown. The trouble
is over a foul shot which De Oro claims
Canafax made in the -second block of
the match. The question has been re
ferred to a board of arbitration and
will be settled one way or the other in

IT RACES TO ATTRACT
WATER SPORTS TO HE SPECIAL
Culler Races, Surf-Boat Contests,
Diving and Swimming on
Under the auspices of the Portland
Motorboat club' on the afternoon of
June 11 as a special feature of Vic
tory Rose Carnival a programme of
water events will be presented by the
water enthusiasts. The programme
will consist or speed boat races, cut
ter races, surf board contests, diving,
swimming and canoe races with a spe
cial exhibition of water throwing and
maneuvering by the fireboats, David
Campbell and George H. Williams.
The speedooat races will consist of
16-foot speedboats, cruiser handicap,
runabout handicap and free-for-all
scratch races. Captain Spier, harbor
master, will be in immediate charge
of policing the course. Authority for
closing the course during the races has
been asked of the government to pre
vent the passing of ships.
Captain George v . Kendall is in
immediate charge of the water sports
on the river. It is tentatively planned
that the boats will race over a course
extending practically from the Broad
way to the Hawthorne bridge. Len
M. Myers is in immediate charge of
the speedboat racing events.
The following boats are already en
tered In the lti-foot speedboat class;

be in the game. At the present timo

EvORTLAND promises to becomo the

If the men Mayor Baker has ap
pointed on the commission hope to
make boxing a success in this city,
they must appoint a matchmaker wb
Is known throughout the land as a
man who understands boxers and
knows their value as box-office attrac
tions. There should be no repptilica

Drew. Jim Flynn-Jimmy Dailty, Jake

It Is far better to pair off a couple
of willing youngsters with less draw
ing power, than to match a well
trained youngster with a veteran who
is at the end of his boxing career.
George P. Henry, who has been act
ing matchmaker for the boxing com
mission for the past several months, is
not wholly to blame for some of the
recent poor matches staged here, for It
Is a known fact that the matchmaker
has not been allowed to use his own
Initiative at all times.
It Is to be hoped that when Chairman
Frank FJ. Watklns returns from the
east and the commissioners are called
for their meeting, that they will select
a matchmaker who is capable in every
department of the promoting art. for
upon the selection of a matchmaker,
more than anything else, depends the
success of the boxing game.

Charley Bonner of Weiser, Idaho,

Gorman would care to make a change,

TIMING is the real rroblem of Ions
driving. What is tuning? . To un
derstand it. it is necessary to remark
that the blow delivered by the golf club
is not the result of one but of many
forces. The body itself Is swinging
round as if pivoted on the backbone;
the arms are swinging from the shoul
ders, the forearms from the elbows, the
club Itself from the wrists. All these
motions are more or less independent;
the aim of the player must be so to
balance the different muscular forces
by which these motions are governed
that they all attain their maximum at
the same time, and that time should be
the moment when the head of the club
comes into contact with tho ball. This
Is timing. And pressing is neither
more nor less than an error of timing
by which one or more of the muscles
exerts Its force at the wrong time and
the wrong point of the swing.
The beginner who is making his first
attempts at long driving Is nearly al
ways sure to fall into the error of ex
erting too much force at the beginning
of the downward swing. Even if he
remembers to take the club back slowly
he tries to make up for lost time, as it
were, by getting up speed as quickly
as possible coming down. The usual
result Is a Jerky, uneven swing and a
foozled drive: but even if the ball is
struck truly, there is no gain in power,
because part of the force has been ex
pended long before tho club reached it.
What the golfer must realize is that at
the top of the swing the club is for
an infinitesimal space of time at resL
