Locaf Clubmen Much Relieved by Letter Received from Alt.
Rogers in Yesterday's MailAll Four Clubs Have High
Hopes of Winning Sen?or Race on Regatta Day
rw There was a broad smile much in
erldence around the ; Healani Club
yesterday , .. afternoon. In fact, the
grin was broad enough to' reach right
. around the boat house, with enousb
lap-over to tie the ends in a bow knot.
- -i "There's a . reason, and ; a mighty
. good - one, tooi for the - general at
w mosphere of , contentment and pros
" perity, for letters from the Coast re
ceived yesterday brought the cheer
ing .news, that -the new Healani rac
K ing barge was .' to be shipped- on the
U AVIlhelmina, due here September 3.
" , ; That Alf Rogers has 5 finally com-
: ; pleted the boat is good Hews ; to the
J Healanis, who have been looking for
- ft for the past month,! and who were
beginning to get somewhat worried at
the prospect of having to go througb
V the regatta with, the old barge. The
, new boat is said to be the very latest
J; In construction, with several improve
ments In weight and design over; the
present racing' craft. The Healanis
will , get it Intp the water as soon as
: possible' after, landing; and the senior
' crew will have the pleasure of trying
. it out for 'the first time. M
H No name nas .been selected for the
new; boat as yet," but Jt la probable
2' that some ; Hawaiian " name will , be
given to It, to follow the custom of
the club! - 'yx C,V-:::.-';''iv;:r;- ; j
-.Eight Crews "Out--."-f----?"- 7
k Yesterday .Ight crews were 4 on the !
Water, aif ,itir' now .'necessary "for!
the oarsmen to double up, two crews
taking turns at the same boat. There
is no chance, however, that the
Healanis will put two senior crews
in the regatta, although this war?
talked of a few weeks ago. The club
will need to put its very best men
in the boat, and when the choice is
made there won't be many first-class
oars left over.
Reports from the Coast intimate
that the Alameda crew Is rapidly
rounding into form, and that the men
have 'fallen naturally into six-oar
barge rowing, and are making great
progress. Rogers remodeled a four
oar barge into a six for the California
clubmen, and although not used to
six-oar work, the crew is now- making
Best Race Ever.
The Myrtles are right In their
stride again, after something of a
slump, and they confidently expect
to . walk off with the senior event.
Owing to the entry of the Alameda
champions, and the fact that Puu-
nene will row senior, this event car
ries even more Interest than is usu
ally the case. It is a bigger race
than ever, and with four fast -crews
fighting for honors, the contest
should be orie well; worth seeing.

heaviest crew in' the race, the figures

CANNON BALL PITCHER
IS NQT HARD TO CATCH
, Is Walter Johnson a hard pitcher
t6 catch? When one watches his ter
rific speed and dazzling curves he
surmises that it is one tough job to
receive the big Swede. Charley Street
was the first catcher to receive the
delivery of the 4idaho phenom." Street
had. trouble in handling him in the
first few ' games, but after that It
seemed . a very easy Job for Street
He always insisted that Johnson was
easier for him to catch than any other-member
of the Washington staff,
but such a statement was never taken
seriously. When Clark Griffith traded
Street to the New York team last win
ter it was believed that he had made
a boot On past performances it did
not seem as if Washington had a catch
er ..who could hold Johnson. It was
thought his effectiveness would be
greatly decreased. On the contrary,
Aihsmith is catching Johnson better
than Street ever did, and Walter ad
mits he would prefer the youngster to
microscope or any other scope, of the
most delicate scientific instrument so
far as I am aware; something in the
innermost recesses of the nervous sys
tem. And I think your great trainer
gets at it by his personality, so that
I- conceive him rather in the light of a i
skilled empiric with an exceptional ca
pability of influencing men and stimu
lating them to do their best, rather
than as a man who has thought out

In any movement and able therefore
to 'show the aspirant to athletic prow
ess the way to do things best. The
coach need not be dissatisfied at my
labeling him an empiric. A clever em
piric is better any day .than a muddle
headed, scientist whose criteria are all
(Second Baseman of the Athletics.)
At last the Boston team has shown
signs of breaking very slight but
still an indication of slowing up. The
team Is not winning games with the
same facility it displayed up to the
last week or two, aHd other clubs with
stations much farther down in the
standing are coming from behind and
beating tbe Red Sox after they have
accumulated a lead. This means that
the pitchers are not as strong as they
Let Stahl lose his pitchers and he
will have a great fight on his hands.
The evident strain of the drive for
the wire, with all the possibilities of
a world's series, is beginning to telt
The Athletics are much encouraged on
the week. With greater frequency the
names of two pitchers are appearing
in the Boston box scores instead oi
just one. -
How About Senators?
But there is a thorn in the side of
the Athletics and Red Sox which
pricks deeper with the passing of each
week. There Is the Washington club.
Its unexplained spurt of the early sea
son has become a sustained flight,
wfth extremely .serious possibilities.
No less' a j baseball light than Frank
Chance has selected the Washington
team to win the American League pen
nant, and ! cmic tnat it is probably
playing the steadiest ball In the league.
Each week that Griffith maintains his
place just behind the Red Sox and
just ahead of us, he stands a better
chance. -His men are not under the
nervous strain caused by worry over
falling back from the dizzy heights of
first place and have no fear in their
hearts 6f the criticism which Is bound
to exude from every pore cf the home
papers should, they once have a com
fortable lead and then drop. A team
in second place has not that to con
tend with. .
Now tjhat no , great alterations have
been made in the standing of the team
as , a 'result' of this t last Western trip
it looks . as if the : championship, were
going to be decided in those few vital
series 3 in the last part'pf - August' and
the be$nnihgf:September, when, the
three redfitending teams" meet one 'an-;

The Athletics should, be Jn tha best

games come around. This last Week
has 8howria big improvement in the
team. Oldring Is back in the game

may clean up in a short series when
