Tho elements prevented the Portland
Tacoma baseball game at the Vaughn
street grounds yesterday, and as a result
there are now four teams practically tied
for second place In the league race. San
Francisco and Los Angeles are two points
ahead of Seattle and Portland, but this
advantage Is credited them on account
of having played more games, although
the relative standing of the four teams Is
practically the same, as each has lost
two more games than it has won.
Portland and Tacoma will 'play two
x games this afternoon, for which only one
admission will be charged, which will be
the first time since 1903 that the Portland
fans have had a chance at '"bargain
day" baseball, as Mike Fisher terms it.
Mike says that there will be baseball to
day', no matter what kind of weather Is
dished out by the weather man, and yes
terday he instructed Umpire McDonald
to call the first game at 1:30, If the offi
cial had to swim out to the field. Accord
ing to Fisher, the only thing that will
- prevent a game will be the washing away
of the ball park.
McCredie is not as sanguine as the Ta
coma manager, but says that the teams
will play If there Is the slightest chance.
The Portland fanB will have their first
opportunity of seeing the locals' new
pitcher. Cy Ferry. In action, for the big
fellow is slated to oppose young Emerson
in ths first game today. "Will Esslck will
pitch the second game against Bobby
Tho first game will be called- promptly
at p. M., and the second ten minutes
after the conclusion of the initial contest.
HALL'S HIT SAVES SEATTLE
Oakland Wins ' In Last Game on
Washington City's Grounds.
SEATTLE. Wash., Oct 7. Russ
Hall's hit in the lastof the ninth to
day saved a shutout and brought in Se
attle's only-run. The Commuters had
pushed three men across the plate on
bunched hits. Just as the game fin
ished a pouring rain started, and it is
probable that the game today will be
the last on Seattle grounds .this season.

EASTERN COLLEGE GAMES.
Yale Wins Fronr Syracuse.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct 7. Yalo
scored her second victory of the season by
defeating the University of Syracuse, 15
to o. The game was well contested, and
In tho first half the snappy play and de-
fenslvo work of the visitors gave Yale
plenty of hard work. But one score came
In the first half. New players In the
second half turned the tide in favor of
the Blue. The Yale t-am, with Captain
Shevelln, the only veteran In the line.
and Flynn, the lone veteran of the back-
field, acquitted Itself well. Yale found
the defensive tactics of .the visitors a
proposition worthy of their steel, and only
toward the end of the second half did
Syracuse begin to waver. Captain Sheve
lln was strong at running back and kick-
on. and Yale s defensive formation for
this play proved effective.
Chicago Has Easy Victory.
CHICAGO. Oct 7. Tho University of
Chicago was very agreeably surprised at
the ease with which they downed the
Iowa eleven today, when they ran up a
score of 42 to 0. In the first half Chi
cago scored six touchdowns, and Parry
kicked the same number of goals, while
Iowa only succeeded In making one first
Sown. The score at the end of the half
was 36 to 0.
In the second half the Hawkeyes braced
up considerably, though not sufficiently
to make any difference with the result
They carried the bill to Chicago's 50-yard
line, then kicked to the 20-yard line, but
there they blew up and could go no fur
ther. The Maroons then took the ball,
and after a short battle secured a touch
down and goal, ending the second half
with six more points.
Harvard 22, Malnd 0.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.. Oct 7. Harvard
defeated the University of Maine by 22 to

ing. Although they tried repeatedly ' to
punt only once did they succeed, while

the lot Harvard this afternoon plowed
her way through the Maine line for great
gains, and when an attempt was made to
circle the ends, It went through In easy
fashion. . i
Princeton Defeats Georgetown.
PRINCETON. N. J.; Oct 7. (Special.)

town here this afternoon. Princeton
gained at will and held Georgetown
repeatedly for downs. Princeton's of
fense was the best shown this season.

LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct 7. Dan Patch,
king of pacers, today clipped three-quar

155U. A crowd of 10.000 was already In a

thrce-heat record successively, and
whon Dan Patches time was given out
excitement approached frenzy. Cheering
people threw hats and wraps in the air

and swarmed Into the track, despite the
efforts of policemen, tho ovation continu
ing several minutes. The great son of
Joe Patchen and Zelllka appeared for his
trial at 4 o'clock. The track was light
ning fast and there was no wind, and
the weather conditions were Ideal. Scott
Hudson was behind the pacemaker. A
strip of cloth between the wheels of tho
forward sulky to prevent dirt being
thrown behind was the only suggestion of
a wind shield.
Hersey Drives Dan Patch.
Horsey was behind Dan Patch. The
books offered 4 to 5 either way on the re
sult of the' effort. There were cheers
when 293 was hung out for the first
quarter. Dan Patch's nose was almost
against Hudson's coat and the crowd
began vainly yelling to Hudson to move
up. Hope was stimulated when 57V was
posted for the half. Excitement became
Intense when the three-quarters was
passed in 1:2GU. and the spectators began
shouting encouragement to the drivers.
Into the stretch the great pacer, still
keeping his even, seemingly effortless
stride, the runner at his sulky wheel be
gan to crawl up. Hudson gave a little
more rein, but Hersey sat like a statue,
not urging his charge with whip or word.
Patch made no last supreme effort, but
finished the mile as he had begun It. Ho
had scarcely broken Into a sweat when
led back to receive the plaudits of the
Pacemaker Is Thanked.
M. W. Savage, his owner.- had the an
nouncer publicly thank Hudson for his
work as pacemaker. He also announced
that Dan Patch on Wednesday would be
sent against the record of 1:594 made
without a dust shield.

Lexington track the 1903 race record ot

EUGENE WILL GO SOUTH.
Coach Shorts Expects to Score
Against Berkeley and Stanford.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. Eugene,
Oct 7. (Special.) Monday the university
football teams will leave Eugene for Cali
fornia to meet the teams of Berekely
and Stanford Thursday, October 12, and
Tuesday October 17. Considering that it
is yet very early In the season the 'var
sity team Is In the best ot shape and pos
sesses an offense stronger and faster
than ever before seen on the local grid
Iron. The .team weighs 16S pounds to the
man and will undoubtedly give a good
account of Itself against the big southern
football players. The absence of McCtaln
and Mclntyre, the two big 'varsity guards
of last year, takes away something from
the efficiency of the team, but their po
sition will be well taken care of by Mul
len, the new man from Lick High School,
and "Bobby" Hartmond. the big fellow
who played guard last year. The extra
weight ot the team above the '04 aggre
gation Is partly contributed by "Lump"
Spencer, a 205-pound center from the Port
land Academy, who will alternate at this
position with George W. Hug. the regular
centerv Frlssel, who has Joe Temple
ton's place at right half-back weighs 170
pounds, and Frank Terapleton. left half
back, and Captain Lauterett, quarter
back, are both heavier than before, so
the back field will certainly be effective
on the plunges and cross bucks. N
Coach Shorts, although admitting -the
greater resources of the California
teams, expects to score against them, and
possibly defeat both Berkeley and Stan
ford, but it must be admitted that since
football training began six week ago at
Berkeley and the Stanford squad has al
ready been fat work for a month, the
southern football men must outclass the
'varsity players In point of preparation.
Following Is the list of players who will
make the trip:
Center, Hug and Spencer; right guard
Hammond and McKlnriey; left guard
Mullen; right tackje, Carl; left tackle,
Arnspiger; right end. Chandler; left end
Moores; quartorback. Captain Lauterette
right half-back. Frlssell; left half-back,
Templeton; fullback; Kerron, sub back,

CAN "FLASH" RACE RESULTS
California Jockey Club Cannot Bar
Men From Track.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 7. The new
California Jockey Club has no right to
keep from the privileges of the track a
person who Is caught "flashing or "sig
naling" the result of races, according to
an opinion rendered today by Judge Hunt.
The case in question Is a suit brought
I by George W. Sanfason against the new
expelling him from the track at Emery
ville. The racing officials admitted they eject
ed him from the track, upon the grdunds
that ho was guilty of Immoral conduct
and of violating the ordinances of San
Francisco in sending the results to de
termine bets made in illegally run pool
rooms. The court held that as to "Hashing" the
result an individual has the same right In
this respect as the news reporters who
send in the results of a prizefight.
