Between the man who was loquacious
and worked so hard pulling for Port
land to -win that he ran bases in the
grandstand and the young woman
who divided her attention between
tossing- her escort"s headgear into the
air and shrieking until her pipes plead
ed for a plumber, and that eighth can
to, there was lots of good stuff thrown
into yesterday's 5-to-3 matinee. The
loquacious one who knew all of the
players by their front name, and
pleaded with them as they came to bat
to remember. Butte, Springfield and the
rest of the burgs from whence Mc
Credle's gallant crew hail, was cer
tainly a fan of the ardent hue. He had
to be, for the screaming lady in white
wrinkled her nose, swung her arms and
shrieked and howled for the Seals. She
must have known Hildebrand or l'arke
Wilson. Maybe she was a refugee. Any
way she was part of the afternoon's
attraction not only on account of her
shriek, but because men's bonnets were
not safe within reach of her sema
phore arms.
It was the finish of the eighth canto
tiiat made the loquacious one happy
find caused the fans to forget the
shrieking lady in white. Roy Hit-t and
.Ernest Califf were the mid-diamond at
traction and as the Oregon City youth
had yet to be trimmed by the refugees,
he figured on the dope as the winner.
In the fourth inning San Francisco,
with the assistance of a couple of in
lield miscues, shoved Wheeler around
tiie circuit without a blnglet to take
off the sting. Portland made it one all
when it came their turn. B. Sweeney
registered after llrst being presented
with four wide ones. Mitchell messed
one along the third-base line and Irwin
made one of his usual American Beauty
one-hand pick-ups. Charley heaved the
bHll to Nick Williams and the ball,
Mitchell and Williams hit station No.
1 at the same time. Nick's waiting
clutch failed and the ball went to the
land of bleach. Sweeney scored. The
tie-up lasted until three singles, a sac
rifice scored two runs and once more
the Seals were happy and so was the
shrleker in white.
Beavers' Lucky Eighth.
Then came Portland's halt of the
eighth. McHale's floating rib stopped
one of Hitt's shoots and Sweeney ad
vanced him a station and lost his life.
Mitchell came through with a biflet
and Jud Smith got away with a
squeeze play. Mohler tried the plate
for an out and missed, and everybody
was so messed up over the neatly
piaced dump, that no one thought of
covering first, so Smith was safe. This
tied the score, for Donahue had seated
in the seventh. One more run was de
manded by the fans. Just because Jud
Smith was tagged at third when the
Seuib failed to trap Mitchell. Donahue,
who, by the way, was blamed for the
loss of B'riuay's game, and most un
justly so, because the rules now say a
base runner cannot be forced off a
base by another runner, was waiting
to score.. It was up to Manager Mc
Oredie to help In the good work and he
did whan Wheeler foozled ills drive.
iJonahue waited in front of the drive
until Wheeler's eyes became crossed
and that helped some. Henderson
shoved his second safo one Into center
and the fifth run was easy.
This was not all of the hot stuff
thrown into the game. It remained for
Manager Mac to close up the session
witii a lightning double. With one
down and three on bases and all of
them there by nice safe hits, Hilde
brand hit to right field. Manager Mac
sprinted as he has never sprinted be
fore. He got by the ball Just as it was
about two feet from the ground. His
clutch was sure and without straight
ening up ho winged it to the waiting
I'c'.e T.ister and doubled Kid Mohler
out. The play was fast and perfect. It
liad to be.

Work of Portland's Oarsmen In East
Directs Attention This Way.
Professor Montrose M. Ringler returns
to this city this week, after an absence
of three months spent in study and in
vestigation throughout the East In the
latest and best methods of physical train
ing. Mr. Ringler spent six weeks at
Yale University, the leading athletic col
lege of the country, and two weeks in
New York and Philadelphia, studying the

tlons. He visited the leading athletic
clubs and gymnasiums of the country and
covered a distance of 12,000 miles, return
ing via New Orleans, Mexico, Los An
geles and San Francisco.
Professor Ringlet writes that since the
Lewis 'and Clark Exposition Portland
has been given a leading place among
the cities of the country and many eyes
are turned this way. Whereever he has
gone people have eagerly asked concern
ing the real truth for business opportu
nities and homes, and he has shown
them the Chamber of Commerce reports
the circulars which he carries along to
verify his statements.
A rate of J50 from all Atlantic Coast
points and ?& from Chicago to Portland
Is effective September 15. and Mr. Ringler
predicts a tremendous influx of Eastern

fices are swarming with inquirers regard
ing rates and reservations.
Mr. . Ringler is gratified at. the respect
and high esteem accorded our Oregon
athletes. Since the great showing made
by the Portland Rowing Club against
the Eastern cracks, the followers of this
sport have begun to sit up and take no
tice. Oregon's sportsmanlike conduct and
grit in this competition was the biggest
advertisement Portland could be given.

Everything in Readiness at Goldfleld
for the Contest for Supremacy
Between Negro Gans and
Danish Battler.
GOLDFIELD, Nev., Sept. 1. Battling
Nelson trained at the fight arena this
afternoon, and he will work there until
fight time. Nelson began this afternoon's
work earlier than usual, In order to take
advantage of the hot sun, the heat from
which was Intensified by the bright, new
canvas. After a vigorous session in the
dressing-room with pullies, punching the
bag and skipping the rope, the Battler
and Bobble Lundie sparred three rounds
in the 18-foot ring.
There was a big crowd scattered about
the arena to witness the Dane's boxing
stunt. Both men went at each other
more viciously than has been their wont
at the old quarters, and Lundie appeared
considerably the worse for wear when the
set-to was over.
Gans Seems Fit.
About 100 people Journeyed over the
hot road to Columbia to see Gans do his
afternoon's work. The colored boxer
punched the bag for about 40 minutes and
skipped the rope for about 10 minutes
more. He got up a lively sweat, but
showed no signs of exhaustion. On the
contrary, he seemed to be in perfect
physical condition.
After his exercises, Gans invited news
paper representatives to visit his dressing-room
and watch the rub-down pro
cess. His chocolate-colored skin glistened
under the rubbing of Trainer McDonald,
and all over his body the muscles stood
out hard and firm. He was never in bet
ter condition, and expressed the utmost
confidence in winning. From reliable
people who saw GamTweigh In today it is
learned that the colored boxer weighed
13Hi pounds stripped.
R. A. Smythe, of San Francisco, says
that Nelson is still quiet In demeanor,
but it requires but a few minutes' con
versation to learn that he Is as confident
of lowering the colors of Gans as he was
that he was master of Jimmy Britt. Nel
son's eyes, those wonderful eyes, which
are so cruel and so pitiless when the
Dane is In the thick of action, are clear
and sparkling, denoting the' robust health
In which he is at present.
Dane's Condition Excellent.
Labor Day will be the 10th anniversary
of Nelson's appearance in the ring, and
he looks upon it as a good omen. Nel
son's' shoulders look as formidable as
The Dane is apparently going into this
fight confident in the belief that Gans
cannot hurt him. He concedes that the,
colored boxer can" outbox him. but he
feels that there will come a stage in the
fight when his opponent will show signs
of weariness, and he will then make the
effort that has returned him a winner so
The odds are still 10 to 8 in Gans' favor.
The following statement concerning the
actual sales- of seats for the battle was
given out tonight by Tex Rickard:
"Our actual cash sales up to 5 o'clock
this afternoon amounted to $30,000. At
Tonopah $2000 was collected yesterday, and
a similar amount deposited today. Our
telegraphic orders foot up to a trifle over
$7000. The total amount, therefore, in
cluding cash sales and reservations foot
up to $42,500."
George Silcr's Promise.
"It is needless for me to say that I will
show absolutely no partiality," said
George Siler, the referee, today. "The
articles state that the order to break is to
be given by the referee by word of mouth,
but do not say that the men should be
penalized if they insist upon holding, and
that puts t( up to me, and if either light
er Is guilty of holding. I will step in
arid break him forcibly away. The offi
cial timekeeper will call oft .the seconds
when a man goes down, and I will repeat
separate count very distinctly to the fall
en man. If anything looks bad about the
fight, I will first Inform Tex Rickard of
my intention and then disqualify both
fighters. The man standing should step
back len feet when a knockdown occurs.
The clause In the articles stating that a
fighter should go to his corner when a
knockdown occurs will not hold because
it is impracticable. T will referee this
fight the same as I refereed the Corbett
Fltzsimmons fight In Carson in '97, and I
think I gave satisfaction on that occa
sion. I have refereed over 200) fights in
my life, and know exactly what is re
quired of a referee In a big event like
Says Men Must Fight Fair or Battery
Will Open Fire.
NEW YORK. Sept. 1. Robert Fltzsim
mons told a party of friendu at the Ho
tel Metropole that Joe Gans is a sure
winner over Battling Nelson. He figured
the respective fighting qualities of the
two men in this fashion:
"Gans Is the cleverest fighter, big or
little, thnt ever put on the gloves. He is
also a hard hitter. He uses one hand
equally as well as the other and can score
a knockout with either. Nelson is
strong fellow with only a vague idea of
scientific bnxlng. He can hit hard and is
always willing to take a blow or two to
land . one. My word for it, he will get
many blows from Gans. and one of them
will put him down and out.
"I expect to see Gans put him to sleep
Inside of four rounds.. Gans may have
'faked' in the past, but he must fight
honestly next Monday, and so would any
other fighter, surrounded with the artil
lery that will be in evidence at the ring
side in Goldfleld."
John L. Says the Negro Can Hit
Like a Mule Kicks.
BUFFALO, N. Y.. Sept. L-John L. Sul
livan says if he had some of John D.
Rockefeller's wealth he would bet a mil
son into insensibility In six rounds, out in
Goldfleld on Labor Day. Sullivan says
he never did like a negro, but admits he
is compelled to select Gans because he
thinks he Is the better man.
"Gans ought to come home on the bit."
says the once mighty John L. "I never
liked a negro as a fighting man, and to
be perfectly frank, I would Just as soon
see Nelson win, but I don't think he can.
Gans is the greatest lightweight the ring
ever saw. He could lick them all in their
best day. Gans is easily the fastest and
cleverest man of his weight in the world.
He can hit like a mule kicking with either
hand. He is there with the coolness and
ring generalship, and I think he has It
on Bat this time. Gans' record is shady.
like his face. I pick Gans In six rounds
by a knockout, but I hope the other fel
low will win."
Interest Increases in the Irvlngton
Tennis Matches.
Never in the history of tennis in Port
land has there been another such suc
cessful tournament, nor has a tourna
ment been played tin which so many
players took part, as the tournament
which is drawing to a close at the Irving,
ton Tennis Club court. During the past
eight days, those lovers of the racquet
and sanded courts have reveled in the en.
Joyment of splendid tennis, and before
the curtain has been rung on the finals
which will have been reached by Tues
day, more good, steady tennis will be
on tap. By the time that the finals have
been reached, 103 players will have taken
part in the tournament. The work of
handicaping this large number of play
era has been a colossal tack, yet so well
was the work done that' all of the
matches were close.
There were also just enuogh surprises
thrown into the tournament to keep both
the players and the gallery guessing and
there was also more than the usual num
ber of young players whose work before
the nets brought them into the limelight.
A number of the former favorites with
the racquet who took part in the tourna
ment, showed by. their games that tney
had not lost their cunning In driving and
other, arts of the game. All this has
pleased the officials of the Irvlngton
Tennis Club, especially those upon whose
shoulders the success of the tournament
has fallen. It has been no easy task to
have the great number of matches which
have been dally scheduled, played on
time, but this has been accomplished and
in order to bring the tournament to a
close on Tuesday, as many of the finals
as can consistently be pulled off, will be
played on Monday, Labor Day. The holl.
day should bring out a large gallery and
some great tennis will be on tap.
. Surprise of the Day.
In yesterday's schedule a surprise
turned up In the defeat of Miss Heitshu,
the state champion. Miss Heitshu has
been going through all" comers until she
met Miss Campbell yesterday afternoon.
Her game throughout has been one of
great consistency and steadiness and but
for the heavy handicap in her match
with Miss Campbell, she would have been
victor in the finals. As it was, It took
three sets to decide the match. In the
club championship for ladies. Miss Fox
beat Miss Moore.
Mr. Andrews, who on Friday beat Mr.
MacSwaln in their spectacular match,
went down to defeat yesterday before Mr.
Mackie. Mr. Andrews at no stage of the
play, displayed the form he showed in
his game with Mr. MacSwain, or the re
sult might have been different. This does
not detract from Mr. Mackte's splendid
game, for It was steady and exceedingly
consistent -throughout.
In the doubles Mr. Bellinger and Mr.
Wlckersham had to call out their cham
pionship form to win from Mr. Mackie
and Mr. Thome. For a while after the
second set opened it looked as If the
champions would be defeated,- but they
rallied under the stiff fire and finally
won. , -
The scores of yesterday follow:
Ladies' singles, finals Miss Campbell
beat Miss Heitshu. 8-6. 7-6, 6-1. -
In the club championship game Miss
Fox beat Miss Moore, 6-2, 6-0.
Men' singles Ferris beat Farrell, 6-1,
6-2, 6-3; Mackie beat Andrews, 6-1, 7-5.
Men's doubles MacSwain and Turner
beat Warren and Lindy, 6-0, 6-4; Mackie
and . Thorne beat Gammie and Breece,
6-4, 6-1: Durham and Morse beat West
and Knight, 6-8, 6-4, 6-4; Bellinger and
Wiekersham beat Mackie and Thorne, 7-5,
4-6, 6-4, 6-1.

BOSTON. Sept. 1. A new major league
record was established today when Phila
delphia defeated Boston. 4 to 1, in a 24
innlng game, lasting nearly five hours.
An advertised double-header brought out
a large crowd, but it was Impossible to
play the second game on account of
On only one occasion, so far as record
ed, has this number of innings been ex
ceeded. . In 1S95 a game between Fargo

game on record prior to the game today
was the Harvard-Manchester game of

years ago.
Only three major league games ap

the victor in all three. One was a 17-.
Inning game in 1902, the -second was a 20
Innlng game, July 4 last, and the third
was today's game.
Coombs pitched one of the strongest
games ever seen in this city, five times
passing dangerous batsmen, only to get
the next man. He struck out 18 men and
was batted safely 15 times. The pitching
of Harris equaled that of Coombs for
22 Innings, but In the last inning he
weakened after the Athletics had scored
and was hit for two three-baggers.
The fielding was necessarily excellent,
but the fielding of Parent and Grimshaw
was especially so. Philadelphia scored
the first run irt the third inning on two
scratch singles and a stolen base. Bos
ton tied the score in the sixth on a
three-bagger and a single. The visitors
scored the three winning -runs in the
24th. Coombs struck out. Hartzol singled.
Lord struck out and Hartzel stole second.
Schreck singled, scoring Hartzel. Thisn
Harris weakened, and was batted for
successive three-baggers by Seybold and
Murphy. The score:
