Angels' Arc in Poor Way for the
Second Half, "While Tigers
' Appear to Be Hold
ing Back.
The Portland bunch of cripples Inaug
urated the second half of the season by
winning the first game, but failed to keep
up the good -work by dropping the next
three. With Mitchell and Schlafley out of
the game and the defection of Pitcher
French, the local team is In bad shape,
and a few defeats on the road at the start
were to bo expected. When they return
home next Tuesday the two 7nen on the
hospital list will be able to resume their
positions, and In addition to these it Is
rumored that two new men will Join the
team here in the persons of Jay Hughes
and Arthur Hoffman. Hughes is the
pitcher about whom there arose a dispute
between the local and the Seattle club.
The .veteran is still capable of twirling
In fast company, and his services will
prove of groat benefit to the locals. Hoff
man is the crack lnflelder, who has been
with the Chicago Nationals, and is "rated
as one of the cleverest inflelders In the
business. He has been playing utility
roles for the Cubs, and if the report 'is
true as to the local manager having land
ed him. the local fans will see a corking
good man cavorting around the third
sack, for the acquisition of this man or
one of his kind means the release or
sale of Runkle. Manager McCredie has.
been after some new - timber for some
time, and it is to be hoped that he has
been successful in landing the player, who'
will strengthen his club materially, lor
with the next five weeks at home the
Giants should be well up among the lead
ers. Russ Hall, the manager of the Seattle
club, has been quietly adding to his club,
until now At the start of the second half
he has a team that should prove a for
midable contender for the honors. The
bunch of pitchers on Rusty's pay-roll are
as fine as any in the league, and will
undoubtedly keep the Slwashes out of
the cellar. Each of the five pitchers has
a different ptyle of deliver', for with
Charlie Shields, the southpaw, with a
world of speed; Fireman Fltxpatrick and
his crossfire: Charlie Hall, a right-hander,
with as much steam as the southpaw;
Roscoe Miller and his excellent control
and curves, and Skcl Roach, with his
dlnky-dinks, Rusty's slab artists present
the most puzzling stylo of delivery from
day to day.
The Angels have got off badly as a
starter of the second half, and are not as
strong a team as they were last year, for
the services of one Useless J. Newton are
sadly, missed by Jeems Morley. The An
gelshave a fairly good staff of twlrlers..
but among the bunch only one can be
compared with the crack southpaw,"" and
that is Big Warren Hall. The Angels,
even under the captaincy of Frank Dillon,
arc not much more than a second division
club, unless they secure some batting tal
ent. In this Tespcct they are lacking, and
can be rated with the Oakland club, which
is the porest hitting team In the league.
The Angels' teamwork will win them a
few games, but they are not by any means
as formidable a club as in the past two
seasons. Dillon and Smith are the only
men In the club who have a respectable
batting average.
For the first time In two years, Mike
Fisher's Tigers have dropped the oponlng
games at home, but that Is of no sig
nificance, for they can be depended upon
to show in the first division right along.
The Tigers are not extremely anxious to
capture the second half, and are evidently
desirous of playing off for the champion
ship with some other club, but in any.
event they are capable of giving any club
a strong battle for the honors. It has
been rumored for some time that Fisher
Intends to dispose of Bobby Keefe, his
star twlrler, and this is probably true, for
by selling the pitcher at this time the
Tacoma club can command a far better
price than it would secure were he to be
drafted at the close of the season.
While the Highlanders deserve all the
credit that can be given to them for the
gallant fight which they are making to
climb in spite of a casualty list which
would discourage the most sanguine man
ager, there is another team In the league
which has surprised baseball followers by
making the strongest kind of fight
against misfortune. With Lajole, cap
tain, manager, best lnflelder. hitter, and
in general the backbone of the team, on
the hospital list, Cleveland lias been mak
ing the best of an Insufficient substitute,
and by the strongest sort of team work
has hung on to the first position intermit
tently but unremittingly, until it now has
a lead greater than before Its captain's
When Lajole was injured Chicago was
tied with the blues for first honors, and
even Cleveland's most ardent supporters
grudgingly said, "Now. I'm afraid the
slide is creased." It was greased to a
certain extent, for Cleveland lost by fig
ures in the average column, but the foot
hold which Chicago and Philadelphia had
on the second and third rungs bad a great
er per cent of sllpperiness than the Cleve
land perch, for the closest rivals of the
blues have also gone down enough to keep
the Clevelanders on top.
This is where the ability of the clubs In
the second division has had its effect on
the standing at the top. The closing up
of the last five clubs on the first three has
pulled Chicago and Philadelphia down,
opening a gap between then? and the lead
ers which should keep Cleveland the
strongest kind of a pennant possibility.
"They can talk about Hanlon, McGraw
..and a few managers being the greatest
ever," said Jack Taylor, the St. Louis
Cardinals' pitcher, "but this man Selee of
Chicago has all of them beaten when it
comes to finding out for Just what position
a man is fitted. He has developed more
stars away from the regular positions
than any manager that ever handled a
team. Take his aggregation as It lines up
now; there is scarcely a man on it who Is
playing in the position In which he origi
nally attracted attention.
"Joe Tinker, counted bj one of the best
rhortstops in the business, came to Selee
as a third baseman. After hating seen
Mm play that position for a little while,
Selee came to the conclusion that Tinker
was too fast on his feet for the place,
as he frequently overran hits, and so
he switched him to short, where he bo
same a star. Johnny Bvers was a short
stop when Chicago got him. His throw
ing in that position was bad, so Selee
placed him on second, where he Is today
one of the greatest performers the posl
tlon ever has known.
"Chance jraa a catcher, but now ranks
s a leading first basemen; SC&loney and
Casey also were catchers, their work In
right field and at third base, respectively,
being of the highest olass since they were
switched. Slagle, originally a center field
er, became a star left fielder for Selee,
and only recently was changed back to
his former place In middle field because
Schultze could play only in left." Cincin

Harry Yardon, the four-time winner of
the British golf championship and; once
of the American, Is out with a new book,
"Complete Golfer." Here are some ex
cerpts from It:
"The man who has never stood upon
the teo with a sturdy rival noar him and
driven a perfect ball, the hands having
followed well through and finished nicely
up against the head, while the little white
speck In the distance, after skimming the
earth for a time, now rises and soars up
ward, clearing all obstacles, and seeming
to revel In Its freedom and speed until
at last it dips gracefully back to earth
again I say that the man who has not
dono' this thing has missed one of the
joys of life.
"There are two mistakes to which the
beginner is much addicted, and to them
Is duo the unhappy circumstance that in
so many cases he never gets his club han
dicap down to single figures. My earnest
advice to the beginner Is to undergo the
slow process of tuition, for nothing less
than three months, and preferably more.
It is a verj long time, I know, and It
may seem painfully tedious work, simply
knocking a ball backward and forward
for all those months, but If he does not
accept my suggestion he will havo harder
things to try his patience during many
years afterward, while, if he takes my
advice ho may be down very near to
scratch at the end of the first year, and
he will be very thankful that ho spent
the period of probation as ho did.
"A golfer's swing Is often made for good
or ill in the first week of his experience.
His first two days of practice may be of
the greatest importance in fashioning his
style. If, when he takes his first lesson
or two and makes his first few swings,
he has a ball on the ground before him
which he is trying to hit. all his thoughts
will be concentrated on what appears to
him to bo the necessity of hitting It
hitting it at any cost. But if he has no
ball before him he will surely learn to
swing his club in exactly the way in
which it ought to bo swung. His whole
mind will be concentrated upon getting
every detail of the actior. properly regu
lated and fixed according to the advice
of his tutor."
"Pop" Geers, the famous driver, has
had his first real ride In an automobile,
and he says he has had enough. The
greatest of all the harness horse drivers
was Inveigled Into a machine owned by
a horseman the other night, and before
he got out expressed himself very strong
ly against automobillng In general, al
lowing that miles In two minutes to sulky
or even a slower clip than that would be
his limit hereafter, unless he was com
fortably seated in a railway coach.
Jack Curry, the old friend and rival of
Geers, was to blame, and he tells the
"I made the engagement with Geers
and we went round to get him." says
Curry. "We put him in the tonneatl
where he couldn't get out. Everything
went beautifully till the chauffeur hit her
up In a long stretch of deserted road.
Whew! she did fly!
"Pop leaned over to me and remarked
that we were traveling at quite a clip.
" 'Why. you'd call this slow If you
were riding out there In front with
Walter Direct,' said L
"But we had to slow down, neverthe
less, and Geers then swore off forever.

In a recent talk with an old friend,
Harry Tuthlll, considered one of the
best seconds in the prize fighting game,
explained how a fighter should be sec-
.onded properly. He said:
There are many things that are
not necessary when a prizefighter Is
seconded. There Is no excuse for a
fighter being banded an ammonia bot
tle during a contest. Before he goes
into the ring let hlra get a bottle simi
lar In shape to that In which vaseline
is sold.
"Saturate a sponge with ammonia
and cover the bottle 'with a rubber
cork, because ammonia will eat away
an ordinary cork. By this simple de
vice there can be no chanco of a sec
ond handing the fighter the ammonia
bottle Instead .of the water bottle.
"In many Instances it !g laughable
to see fighters enter the ring for a
contest. They are loaded down with
clothes, from coats to undershirts, the
other covering being a bath robe.
Around the ring sits a coatle&s crowd
endeavoring to keep cool by means of
palm leaf fans. This class of fighter
has -usually from four to six seconds be
hind him. who are of no use and do
practically nothing except shout to
their friends In the gallery.
"Three seconds are enough for any
fighter one to fan, one to advls- and
another to handle a. bucket and" chair,
Moreover, the fighters will not be the
only ones benefited. Those sitting
around tho ring near the corners will
nothave to stretch so far to see what
is going on; besides, they will not have
to put up umbrellas to protect them
selves from the shower of rosin from
the towels as the fighter' Is cooled oft
at the end of the round.
"In a bout a boxer is liable to be cut
by. bumping against the other fellow's
head or by a blow. Amateurs, In sec
onding, use almost everything to atop
the bleeding. Tincture of 'iron is good,
but it burns the skin and leaves a very
bad-looking wound. Subsulphate of
Iron Is tho best to use.
"If a second places a little of the
powder oa a piece of cotton arid presses
it against the cut he -will find, unless
the wound is a very severe one, that
It will stop the bleeding In from 20
to 30 second and leave, a clean wound
to work on when the contest Is over.
"Did you ever notice the lunches
some seconds bring into tho corner
with their man? There are usua&y
fruits of all kinds in the layout. A.
fighter hasn't much tlroo to partake of"
such things In his minute's rest.
"He is usually busy trying to get a
good breath. All that stuff Is excess
baggage in a corner. All a handler of
a fighter needs are these: Two bottles,
a spongo and a bucket. If the boy that
is boxing is not afraid, a sponge on
the head after a round will brace him
up and help him to remember things
that a punch in th Jaw during the
round might have made him forget.
"If a fighter goes to his corner grog
gy, a few slaps with the palm of tho
hand on the back of the neck will do
much more to revive him than the
strongest ammonia. Then, too, this
mode of arousing him wilt not affecV
his heart action and will better enable
him to exerolee his brain. Chicago
Cry f Fake Raised.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. E. (Special.)
Tho cry of fake has been raised in re
gard to the Gardner-Turner mill, at Col
ma, last night. Men from Stockton,
Turner's home, believed their man In
vincible. They knew his fighting and they
saw him putting up a very Indifferent
game of pugilism.
He showed neither cleverness nor
strength, and cries of "Why don't you
fight," were repeatedly heard. The the
ory of those who say Turner didn't try
to coin Is that he has found great dif
ficulty In getting matches, because fight
ers were shy of him, and he thought a re
versal of form would bring him a bunch
of easy marks. Gardner's showing has
not greatly Impressed the sporting public

Delightful weather, new equine blood
from Eastern race courses, good starting
and many exciting finishes caused the
turnstiles to show a big increase In at
tendance at Irvlngton Park during the
past week. In fact, the racing we have
been witnessing at the four-cornered track
has been of a high order ever since the
meeting opened. The only complaint
heard has been over a few close finishes,
in which the horse finishing on the out
side looked to a majority of the spectators
to have won. On almost every occasion,
however, the horse finishing next the in
side rail caught tho Judges' eye first. The
angle of the finish at Irvlngton Is very
deceptlvo to the spectators at the left
of the Judges' stand. If one would like
an excellent Illustration of this deception
to the eye, stand two oblong blocks on
a table and place them on exactly even
terms, but with about a foot of space be
tween them. Then stand back from the
table and view your home-made finish
from different angles and see the result.
You wlir make no mistakes about which
"horse" wins this finish, as your nerves
will be in a normal state, and neither of
the blocks will be carrying any of your
"worldly goods."
Starter Mulholland has been doing ex
cellent work with the barrier, and but
few bad starts are recorded against, him.
Nearly every well-played horse has' had
an even break, and this, of course, gives
speculators lots of confidence.
One of the features of the past week's
racing has bean the riding of little
Graham, who rode nine winners In the
first five' days of the week. The Jockey
tabic shows that he won 24 per cent
of hl3 mounts, which Is an excellent aver
age. And It cannot be said that Graham
Is riding the best horses, as in tho nose
and head finishes In which he has taken
part he has gained the decision in a ma
jority. He Is very alert at the post, and
has been off In tho first four on all but
a few occasions. He rates a horee very
nicely and seldom cornea wide In tho
stretch, nearly always finishing on the
rail, thereby saving a lot of valuable
ground at the last turn.
Loague has also dene some clever work
In the saddle and Is but two races be
hind Graham. Benny Powell Is another
boy who has more than held his own.
The heavier boys Ivy Powell. Otis, Min
der and T. Stewart have not done very
well, although they have had but few
mounts. "Handriding" Frank Kelly ex
pects to commence riding this week, and
Eddie Walsh, a very "clever rider, will be
here from Cincinnati this week. Walsh
will rldo for the stable of S. M, Williams,
a recent arrival from the East.
The race run by Judgci In tho MncRae
Handicap, a week ago Saturday, proves
that horses partial to mud run well
over the Irvlngton track. The black son
of Atheling la at his best on a soft track,
and will bo a hard horse to beat In the
Horsemen who raced at Denver are
very enthusiastic over Flying Fox, a
sprinter that won most of his starts at
tho Overland Park meeting. They con
sider him a wonder, but he would havo
troubles of his own if he should meet
Billy Mahan at four' or . five furlongs.
The roan gelding can beat any horse
here at four furlongs, and 95 per cont of
them at five furlongs.
Laldlaw, the best sprinter at Seattle,
'seems to bo of no accounf over the Irv
lngton track, as the short stretches make
It Impossible for him tq get fully In his
Epicure Is, without doubt, the hardest
luck horse here. He should have won the
sixth race Tuesday by -a couple of lengths,
but Jockey Ivy Powell underestimated the
staying Qualities of Estella J., and
thought he could take the lead from
her whenever ready. He .allowed her
to open up a gap of seven lengths In
the first half-mile, and when he made
his run in the stretch he was unable
to get up in time. Epicure was running
over Estella J. at the end. and should
have won as he pleased. This Is about
the fourth race in which Epicure looked
a certain winner, only to have something'
happen to "delay" him.
Good Cheer was another horse that
should have won her race. She wa3
unfamiliar with the Irvlngton turns and
Clark made his move entirely, too late.
Good Cheer came to the extreme outside
entering the stretch, and rushed by the
others In the last sixteenth as though
they were standing still. But, like Epi
cure, she was a stride too late.
Dick Williams, owner of Good Cheer.
Alencon, Loyal Front and other, fast ones,
furnished shining example of. the uncer
tainties of horseraclng. On his arrival
here he was anxious to dispose of Water
cure, and found a ready customer In Tom
Davles,' owner of Eleven Bolls. Then
Dick grew enthusiastic over the race run
by Dlxelle on Wednesday, whon she won
pulling up by three lengths. So he pur
chased DIxello and entered her in the
sixth race Friday, In-which It happened
that Watercure was also a starter. A
number of handleappers and bettors,
knowing the good racing Watercure had
done in the past, thought him one of the
contenders In the race and a possible
winner. But when some of them went to
Williams for Information as to Water
cure's recent form in the East, he threw
cpld water on their hopes by declaring
that Watercure was of no earthly ac
count, and that he was absolutely certain
of being beaten by every other horse In
tho race. As a consequence, the book
makers posted 6 to 1 against Watercure,
although they felt certain the price was
entirely too long, and. finding no takers,
carried the odds to 8 to I. and then to 10
to 1. At this last figure a few of the
faithful couldn't resist the temptation of
10 to 1 against a ohe-tlme high-class
horso, and took a chance to get even on
an otherwise bad day. Tho running of
the race showed how often horsemen are
more at sea In their opinions than the
public. Watercuro followed Blissful, the
pacemaker, very closely to the last turn,
and In a hard drive through the stretch
managed to win by a head. Dlxelle. Will
lams' recent purchase, was a distant
fourth, with little or no excuse to offer.
Watercure is about 8 years old, and In
1S01 ho finished second In the Suburban
and Brighton handicaps, two of the rich
est races run in America. He was a good
breadwinner for Green B. Morris, and
thji late Caesar Young, and won a num
ber of races In Los Angeles last Winter.
Alencon's win on Friday brings td mind
his purchase for 51SC0 as an untried year
ling by Caesar Young. As a 2-year-old.
Alencon could outwork R M. Brattaln,
one of the fastest sprinters on the Coast,
but he was a' bettor horse in the morning
than when the money was up. He com
pletely outclassed the field he was meet
ing Friday, and won as far as he liked.

"While Legal Battle Is On, Will

Many Owners.
Not only the -horsemen were- disap
pointed by' the granting of the injunc
tion against the Multnomah Fair Asso
ciation, hut the large Saturday crowd
that Journeyed to Irvj-gton track. In
addition to being disappointed, was
exceedingly wrathy. Captala R. W.
Spencer's oars must hnve tingled, be
cause he was the topis of conversation,
not only among the horsemen, but
among thoso who were denied seeing
the thoroughbreds chase each other
around the traok.
The officials of the association will
not let the mattor rest with the pre
liminary injunction which Judge Frazer
granted Captain Spencer yesterday
morning. Late in tho afternoon at
torneys for the asoclatidn filed a mo
tion to dissolve the Injunction, and the
time set for the hearing of the motion
is Monday morning. If this mntln
falls, in all probability the case will bo
taken at once to the Supreme Court
and fought out to the bitter end. The
closing of the race meeting Just at this
time will work a woeful hardship upen
tho owners who have brought their
horses to Portland. A.lltold. there aro
over 400 horses stabled at Irvlngton,
'and there are about 500 men and bovs
needed In caring for these horses.
These owners and trainers have ship
ped their stables Into the Northwest at
a great cost, nnd by the time they hae
returned to California for tho Winter
racing, they will have spent with tho
railroad companies something like S30 -000.
If racing is stopped altogether, it
means ruin to many of them.
At first It was the intention of tha
association officials to race out yester
day's card and pay the purses,
selling pools. They would not havo
been prevented by the Injunction had
they decided to do this, but the officials
deemed It best to thrash out the mat
ter in the courts, so the races wea
postponed for a week. Hors?ran In
spite of the fact that -it will prevent
them from dividing the $10,000 wh!h
the association distributes weekly
among the various horses that run each
day In tho money, were willing to ac
cept tho postponement. They came here
to race, and were exceedingly glad to
get away from Seattle, and while thov
realize that each day of delay means
added financial burdens to the load they
are already carrying, thoy wero will
ing to wait.
When it became known at tho track
thnt the races were postponed, owners
and trainers hurried from the track to

taking in tho sights of the city. Most
of them are hero, for tho first time and

Hard checking and fast combination
play will mark the championship lacrosse
game to be played at 2:30 o'clock this
afternoon at the baseball grounds. Twenty-fourth

for the Seattles. are about the best m
the business In this country, not even ex
cepting the equally famous combination
of the Brooklyn. N. Y.. club. And they
will be faced by an equally string duo,
Dan McNlcholl and Tommy McDougall, c
tho Portlands. Another storm center will
be where "Deer Wallace and Jennings
are opponents they are determined. we.I

capable of tickling the grandstand- They
are well balanced on the other side by
Campbell, Hamilton or Stewart. It Is saTa
to say that a similar game of the kind
will not bo seen here for years.
