summarily ordered off the grounds for registering a deserved kick Davis' worl-c vas of the same hue that characterized last Saturday's game Fair tn-L lis were called foul and strikes were J nils until the crowd got after Mr Dav Is for fair and his departure at the end of the game was not exactly a march of triumph San Francisco did not have a shadow of a ehanre aCterthe first inning when the Seraphs ltinded on Chubby George Wheeler for f triple a double and two singles in adtlition to a free pass resulting in thr-ee runs out Pavis' poor work robbed of much of its interest an otherwise one — sided game It was a t ig holiday crowd that gathered to -witness the contest It was a good - natured crowd also or Davis would havncome in for a worse Joshing 0m y- win on the slab for the home team ai d Wheeler for San Francisco "Dnil v " pltcheil gilt-edged ball all through - Tnilc Wheeler was oumsed for thirteen ii its including a triple and three doubles Things vere so easy for Morley's mm that they -became careless and three errors were marked up against them ' i Three runs were scored in the first Inning on a single by Bernard a triple by Flood a single by Smith and lirashear'a double Toman walked In the second and scored on 13er-nard's single Two more runs were net ted in the third as the result of a don Me by Dillon and singles by Cravath tvnit Brashenr In the foux-th Toman singled and Spies was srfe on Oochnaucr's error Tfimnr helntr thrown out at the plate In an attempt to score Cray fouled out and Bernard -popped to Spencer At the end of the 1 renins Captain Parke Wilson of the Steals ventured to protest against a decision of the umpire and was flurl 3- For talking back he was ordered iff the grounds Catcher 5h ea was fined $5 for kicking dirt cn tlie plate and for expressing his pm-c- nal opinion of the umpire he was mulcted !5 more Shea was 2iand"l a stinging- rebuke for being so familiar as to call Mr Davis by hi baptismal name of "Ira" when he tasi coldlv Instructed to address that official as "Mr Umpire" The last tally was scored by Morley's men in the ei trhtli when Smith doubled and scored i n Cravath's single to left After the game some playful fans indulged In tossing cushions but the prompt seizure of one offender by the police stopped the fun LOS AN'iT IBS iBAm AH I l HO A Although Umpire Davis is enforcing I plate it was seen that he had a news- the rule not to allow anybody but ! paper in his hnnd Arriving at tne pime ttlius strucK a maicn uou ni fire to the paper and laid It on the home plnte Then turning to the pitcher he snlrl: 'Tut 'em over Jesse it's only the New York Sun coming up' For tills little trick Davis was fined $10 and put out of the game But he hrul accomplished his object for before they could settle down again it was raining so hard that Mace was compelled to call the game Whatever It may be off the diamond Umpire Davis always addresses the plnyers In the corn'ct form He always says "mister" and not a playfr's first name This Is exactly as It should be for familiarity breeds contempt and ho is perfectly right in insisting on being addressed as "Mr Umpire" the caDtnln to auestlon the correct ness of any of his decisions a majority of them are doing enough kicking for the whole team They appear to think that nowadays a man cannot be viiocprcftil as a raptaln or a eap-taln-mnnnger unless he says things to the umpire and gets put out of the game and thrown out of the grounds mi a remit During yesterday's game Curtis Bernard eot in the way of one of Wheeler's slow balls and was hit on the arm The batter started for first base while Parke Wilson who got up from the bench and approached the lines began to make a kick over it Davis ordered rwrnard back to the plate Heine Spies v-ns on third having reached there on the plav and the umpire ordered him back to second And still Wilson was not satisfied He stood there and growled at Davis wanting him to enh Bernard out for interfering with the ball Fnrke had received everything he could legitimately claim but he nnn tinned to kick Finally Davis fbrdered him off the grounds and that was the last seen of Wlison until tn game was over when he met tne umpire near the steps leading from the field to the grrlstand Wilson and several other San Francisco players assumed a very threatening air but Davis did not stop Cousin Parke probably wlil receive a stiff call-down from league headquarters In a few days and it will do him good X' f 39 1 realized what a good man they had until it was too late and ha had signed with Boston "HIT THE TOBOGGAN" Thousands of fans in California remember Elmer Meredith the southpaw who pitched such good ball for San Francisco In 1902 "Your Uncle" Henry Harris secured Elmer from the Salt Lake team where he had been the star for the season of 1001 After pitching one season on the coast Mere dlth signed with Milwaukee of the American association where he was once more the "hit of the piece" for he pitched great ball For some reason or other this was his last good season for the season following 1904 Meredith hiked back to Salt Lake but his visit was short for he could not get in form From the-r" he drifted South pitched for first one Independent club then another and falling to make good with any This spring Elmer went to Leavenworth Kan and two weeks ago was traded to Springfield Mo for another pitcher Springfield in turn gave Meredith and another player back for the pitcher given for Meredith Leavenworth after giving him another trial released him entirely saying he had passed his dny of usefulness Meredith "lilt the toboggan" at a rapid nace last soring and It Is doubtful If i the once famous southpaw w ill ever be able to get back into form again Vote for the No-Saloon

5000 COMMENTS ON THE GAME "Dolly" Gray had almost perfect control yesterday In the fourth inning he pitched three balls to Nealon retiring the voung man on three strikes ( )ne pitched bail was sufficient for Williams the fair-haired boy to be retired at first while Shea selected the second bail to hit to Smith and be thrown out The first two balls Wheeler pitched resulted in two hits and a run Bernard bunted the first and beat It out while Flood who never waits for Bernard to steal second lambasted the first ball for three bases scoring Bernard WAITING FOR RAIN J Ira Davis the gentleman who is handling the indicator at Chutes pant was playing with the Norfolk Va elnh rliirlne the season of 1896 In a game at Richmond one day a slight rain began to fall Just as the eighth Inning was to begin The score at the time was 1 to 0 in favor of Norfolk and th players of the latter eiuo negan i" play for time for Jesse Tannehill was in the box for Richmond and was pitching th? fastest kind of ball The Norfolk batters could not touch him their one run having been scored on errors And Richmond was likely to get in and win out in the last inning for they were great finishers They dallied around and argued wdth the umpire— Harry Mace— trying to de-lnv the game until the rain began to full jr earnest and It would bay to be-called Finally Mnce lost patience and ordered Claude McFarland up to bat at once or he fined Claude held the rr-ine for several minutes but was finally retired batter up and Davis was the next as he approached the GRAHAM FOOLED Charley Qraham was completely fooled during Saturday's game by ft clever play that Flood and Toman pulled off Graham was on first and Casey nt bat when the "hit-and-run" signal was given The runner started for second with the pitcher's arm but the best Casey could do was a weak ttl? fly back of second Graham din not see where the ball was hit and when Toman went through the motions of fielding a grounder while Tim ran to the bag to take the throw Grn-hnm strained every nerve to reach second ahead of the ball When he finally tumbled to the play it was too late for him to get back to first baFp so a neat double play was pulled off Saturday evening Graham told soma friends that the play fooled him completely and that If Toman had made a move as though to throw to Flood he would have dived Into second head first If he broke a collar bone Tomnn and Flood try for this play regularly Sometimes thev make It and other times they rec in only the "big laugh" but it is 'wor'h vying for if they succeed once out five times LINE ON DOUGHERTY Tim Murnane thus sizes up one of the leading plnyers of the New York Americans: "Pat Dougherty goes slouching by a great run-getter poor fielder but a valuabe man one of the few men who can throw from the outfield an all-around batsman and a hound going over the ground to first 'dopey' disposition not liked by his fellow-players and apparently indifferent to public opinion a smile for no one but the proper build for a great player and with more thought and practice In his weakness should be a fancy-salaried man made a barrel of money for both New York and Boston last season when he changed his base of operations hard man to replace on a champion team but lacking many essentials necessary for team work" The above may describe Pat perfect ly Nevertheless there will always be a warm feeilng in the hearts of the Los Angeles fans for him He Joined tho Seraphs after the Connecticut State league season was over and like the league be had Just quit he le'i the
