fielding Hurley's bunt In the eighth, al
lowing the locale to take the last game
of the series.
Bmlllng "Schmidtty" wag pitted
against Jake Thlelman and as far aa
uii.hin mtmm concerned, honora were
about even, but when It came o the um
pire our Jake received the beat of H on
base decisions, but suffered somewhat
on balls and strikes. Jack McCarthy
had an off day and when he very prop
erly called Schlafly safe, when that
Worthy atole home In the sixth Inning,
the small Sunday crowd, who were In a
bad humor on account of the weather
and some previous decisions became
demonstrative and threatened all sorta
of tilings to the unfortunate official.
To add to hla troublee, several of the
players became hostile, and expreased a
desire to argue aome of the fine points
of the game, and McCarthy got hla
dander up. and when Dunleavy became
abusive, he got ehaaed from the game.
Previous to thla Pete Lohman had been
politely requested to vacate the premlaes
and was forced to leave the field under
escort. Bill Devereaux. Morry Steel
man. Bob Qanly. Bill Hurlay and several
other players started gab festa with the
daughty little umpire and were fined.
By long odds It was the scrappiest
game seen here In a long time. Mc
Carthy's work at tlraea was a trlfls bad,
bus he certainly demonstrated quite
clearly that ha was running the per
formance and kept the unruly players
under his thumb pretty well, considering
the way things were breaking.
Portland registered the first run in
the fourth Inning, when Hurley walked
and stole second. Nadeau singled to
left and Hurley scored.
In the sixth. Dunleavy. Schlafley and
Kruger singled In succession, although
Spencer ahould have fielded the latter"a
bit. and one run acored. Strieb sacri
ficed, advancing Schlafley and Kruger.
Then came the decision at the plate that
aroused the Ire of the fans. Schlafley
aaade several fake starta for the plate
and Thlelman was wise to the fact that
a double steal was to be attempted and
held a conference with Steel man.
Devereaux flew to Campbell, making
two out. Schlafley then took a chanca
for the plata, and Steelman, aa uaual.
made a fluke of touching htm. and Mc
Carthy said Safe!" and the crowd
howled thief! robber! etc., but the de
cision was correct; for Steelman failed
to touch the runner until be had regis
tered. It was a clever play on
Schlafley's part, and Is the second time
that worthy has atolen home on Thlel
man and Steelman thla week.
Spencer led off for Portland In the
eighth by securing a pass. Hurley
dumped one down to Strieb, who cap
tured the ball near the line, ana puilea

JOYED THE CONTEST.
The Portland lacrosse team went
down to t to 0 defeat yesterday altar-
noon at Hawthorne park at' ths handB
and sticks of the strong Victoria club.
The cohteat was a moat enjoyable one
and thoroughly pleased the falr-alsed
crowd that attended. Were It suffi
ciently known In this city that auch a
splendid exhibition of lacrosse was being
played here yesterday, there Is little
doubt but that the grounds would not
be large enough to aocommodata the
spectators. As it was. ths game was
not sufficiently patronised to warrant
the local club bringing the crack teams
to this city. There Is no getting around
the fact that lacrosse Is one of the most
interesting games in the category of
outdoor sports, and the young men of
this city who have undertaken to put
the game on a firm footing here deserve
commendation for their efforts. Of
course, the day was not ideal for the
snort, yet the match was of the variety
that warranted a larger attendance.
Portland was pitted against a team
that holds high rank In the lacrosse
world, and for the loss of yesterday's
game there ta no disgrace for the home
players. In truth, the visitors were
slightly outplayed In the first two quar
ters, ths Portland players displaying
more cleverness snd generalship. At the
beginning of the third quarter rain be
gan to fall, and this had a bad effect
on the locals, as they slipped' all over
the field. The Victoria boys wore rub
ber cleats on their shoes, which enabled
them to hold their ground very well,
while the Po inlanders were skating in all
directions. During the game Portland
had many chances to score, but the
shooting wss not accurate. Victoria
played a vigorous game tn the last quar
ter, and when least expected Peele shot
the ball Into the net after five minutes
of play. The play was a pretty one.
Six minutes later Morris shot another
goal, making the final score 2 to 0.
For Vlctoris, Peele. Belfrey and Morris
put up a corking good game, while Oddy,
Hogue. Laurence, Met ance ana uraaen
did the best work for Portland.
Considering that Victoria Is a crack
aggregation, and that Portland played
her a 2 to 2 game at Astoria on Fri
day, yesterday's contest may, be reck
oned as first class from a local stand
point. There was not roughness dis
played, the cutting of Mollis' Up being
attributed to an accident. The lineup

BROWNS LEAVE FOR
TWO WEEKS TRIP
FOHTX.ANTD HUNCH LEFT
NIGHT POH SHJUNS
LAND AND LOS A NO
BHOWNS All TN DIMO
The Portland ball team, balls, bats,
baggage and Dugdale, left last night for
Ban Francisco on a two weeks' trip.
What the gods hava In store for the
Brownies no on can tell, but it Is safe
to say that the Portland men will have
to atep lively to keep out of the dungeon
while in California1. Portland and Oak
land will open at Oakland tomorrow and
nine games will be played with Lohman's
men. Ths following week Portland will
visit the land of orange blossoms snd
flowers and play six games with Jim
Morlsy's sngels. With this prospect. IS
hard games, and the smaahed-up con
dition of the Browns, Portland's chances
are not the brightest. Bhould anything
happen Steelman, Portland will be minus
a catcher, as Shea was left at home, and
should an lnflelder be crippled Dugdale
has no utility man, aa Campbell was also
lsft at home.
Even with the dark olouda on the
scene, the hopes of the Portland fans
are the highest, and they expect to see
Portland make a fair showing. There is
no getting around the fact that Portland
will be up against a hard proposition
for the next two weeks. Oakland la
playing a hard and consistent game and
a team that beats her will surely know
that it was in the game,. Oakland la in
rare form now, and It Is pears to prunes
that the commuters will be out of the
cellar this time next week
Without prejudice towards manager or
players. It must be said of the Browns
that their Infield is lamentably weak and
badly disorganised. One day they will
play a brilliant game, and the next-performance
will be so stale that the angels
would weep If they had paaaes to the
contests. This tn and out business,
propping up poor players and stuffing
their batting and fielding averages
through ths aid of a "hired man," will
not produce the desired results. San
Fmnclsco found herself with a weak
team two months ago and Manager Har
ris promptly went east and secured
first-class talent. All the good players
In the country are not dead yet. and
Portlanders would like to see a few new
faces. Drennen doesn't appear fast
enough for thts league. iadeau has not
been playing the game of which he is
capable, and Phil knows the reason why.
Castro haa been playing a stas- right
field, but not Kitting up to the standard.
The trouble, however, Is not with the
few players who are continually being
abused by the "hired man," but right in
the midst of the team, where discretion
should prevail and a wise head rule. It
la not "knocking" either to state that
Portland la poorly captained. In truth,
there are many Ills that beset the
Browns, and if Manager Dugdale Is as
wise as his backers declare, he should
be able to see wherein he blunders. It
might have been too late for Dugdale to
strengthen his nine materially before the
first season closed, but it is not Too late
now for Manager Dugdale to give Port
land a winning team for the remainder
of the season.
