TAKE FINAL GAME
Minneapolis and Indianapolis Put
Up Rattling Battle in Con
test of Yesterday.
Beatitude an hull thick and hnrmonv like unto
Quaker quaiteih meeting ievaile at Nle
diet park jesteidav afternoon. Minneapolis
suppressed the Indianapolis team in one of the
best baseball exhibitions of the ear The
weather conditions weie ideal, a laise eiowd
was present and Stovall was pitching in mid
season form Ih field was cleaning house e\eiy
time a stray bat-i.i\eling floated out over the
heather and the laseals were hitting. That was
about all there was to it. Indianapolis managed
to squeeze in onte run. but rhev made it thru
clean-cut hitting, and weie entitled to it
Both pitchers, Reidy and Stovall, were steady
and effective The game started oft well when
the first thiee Indians ui weie bcaliied. altho
Farrell drew four balls Ho tried to steal sec

aand it waited for Taarrell at the base. Thrice
the Indinns tried laieem of second and just as
often did Constable Schmidt rebuke them by
throwing them out
Jones, first up for Minneapolis, put the wood
against the leather for a single and Sullivan
sacrificed. Freeman's out put Jones at third
and he came home on Coulter's sinode. The
game passed on quietly until the fourth, when
Gremingei started the disturbance by a single.

from second and upset e\er\ thing in the base
man line that got in his ratn When the bat
tleship gets into full siet the opponents havp
learned to shy like a country hen at a benzine
buggy. That ended te scoring for the fomth,
buggy. That ended the scoring for the fourth.
The Lucky Seventh.
The seventh marked the next outbreak of the
Indians and the millers. It was a scoring time
for both sides with the Watkins aggregation
coming off with the best the contest Roth
landed fair and square on htovall for a beauti
ful hit It bailed to the fence, Cy Coulter not
being able to knock it down as it went by. Roth
romped to third. Ostenn came up and diove a
stinging clout to light and Roth came home.
That was the first and last score of the In
Stovall led off at bat for the millers and
made a clean single. Reidy threw wild to catch
Jones at first base and Stovall gained second,
with Jones safe on first. Sullivan made a sin
gle and Stovall scored. Coulter flew out to deep
right and Jones came across the pan, biinging
up the score to 4 1, where it stood thruout the
remainder of the contest.
Louisville is on this afternoon, and from the
ball the millers have played in the last two
days It looks as tho the Tebeau "tarriers"
should go home with cans tied to them. Min
neapolis won the entire series from Indianapolis
but the work of Hynes of Thursday lobbed them
of a game that was theirs by every right.
Play of the Week.
The play of the week has been better in that
the Minneapolis team has been hitting better.
The outfield Is hitting satisfactorily, but the
Infield is not up to the proper work yet. Free
man is showing that he is still in the world
of lambasts, but Fo\. Ojler and Greminger have
not been doing well. Fox's play and head
work at second excuses: him from not being
strong with the willow, but Greminger aud
Oyler should lace it out The big third base
man has a string of hitting history back of
him, scattered thru thiee leagues The fans
know he can and will hit and have been patient
with his lapse They are "squeezing" for him
every time he comes up and all he lacks Is a re
gaining of confidence. Oyler is getting to the
pitchers all of the time, but seems to be un
lucky in getting an outfielder nndei Ins belts. He
generally drives the ball to the outfield and
seldom strikes out He, too, is a favorite, and
the fans would like to see him crawl higher in
the hitting column In fielding the team has

JENKINS MASTER BIG MEET MA
O FRANK GOTC
Iowa Man Unable to Do Anything
With Big Cleveland
New York, May 20.In the roughest and most
exciting wrestling match ever seen here Tom
Jenkins defeated Frank Gotcb two out of three
falls in Madison Square Garden last night.
Those who witnessed the match never will forget
It. Biting, scratching, pulling "and similar
methodsin fact, everything that is contrary
to the universally accepted wrestling rules was
Gotch began the first bout with his usual
roughing tactics, but soon found Jenkins his
equal in this respect. So fierce was the gruel
ling that both men were forced half-way out
of the ring on numerous occasions. Gotch pro
tested strenuously against Jenkins' methods, but
Referee Hurst ordered him to resume wrestling.
Finally after 1:27.57 of the most desperate
kind of wrestling, Jenkins gained the first fall
with what was announced as a "mug hold
and a half-Nelson." To those around the ring
side it was plainly a strangle hold that made
the Iowan roll over on his back.
Gotch went at Jenkins viciously 'in the next
bout He threw Tom around the mat as if
the latter were a rag doll. He cornered the
elusive Clevelander and obtained the second
fall with a strangle hold in 0 36.23 seconds.
Both looked tired as they came on for the de
ciding fall. Gotch's aggressive work in the
preceding bouts now showed its effect and he
was obliged to assume the defensive, after
squirming out of several dangerous holds, he
fell Into a body hold and a half-Nelson and his
shoulders were forced to the mat in 0:11:10.

hope in having them here in Chicago under
the auspices of the new Illinois Athletic club,"
said Dr. Herman. "I been trying to arrange
the matter and expect to hear from James E.
Sullivan soon. It is possible that the local
club may not refuse to take up the matter and
in case I hear from Sullivan in time, I believe
that it can be arranged. There is sure to be

Change of Sentiment Over the
Ocean Race for Kaiser's
New York Sun Special Service.
London, Slay 20.Discussing oeaan yacht
race and the chances of the competitors the
Yachting World says It may be admitted that
the majority of yaehting men in this c-ountry
looked coldly upon the proposal when it was
first put forward, and there was a general In
clination to prophesy that the event would
probably fall thru for lack of entrants.
This estimate, enoneous as it has been
proved, seemed reasonable enough, for the ar
rangements held many difficulties. By degrees,
however, the unique sporting possibilities of
the venture lecommended themselves to the
yacht owners on both sides of the Atlantic and
the result is a muster which may be regarded
in the fullest sense of the woid as a credit to
the spirit in which the yachting men of G?eat
Britain, America and Germany cultivate the
Take Even Chances.
If the match were to be judged at all by
the ordinary canons of racing, the first point
which would strike the jachting critic is the
fact that a fleet of such varying size, age, rig,
power, and presumably sailing ability should
have been started off on a course of about three
thousand miles without a shred of handicap of
any kind When Valhalla, a full-rigged ship of
1,490 tons, is matched against the Fleur de
Lys of 225 tons, and the ex-racer Ailsa against,
say, the old-fashioned Sunbeam, we look, natur
ally, for something in the way of a compensa
ting handicap allowance.
In stiict truth, however, it may be said that
the result will be so far dominated by the luck
of weather which the fleet or different yachts
of the fleet may have on their passage across
that it is doubtful whether any handicap which
did not run into days would have had any ap
preciable effect upon the chances of the contest.

In breezes which are light to moderate and
coming from a quarter which will keep ves
sels with sheets pinned close in, then the
chances of either Ailsa or Hamburg should be
worth considering. On the other extreme, with
gales or strong winds from almost any direc
tion, but particularly such as to give a lot of
sailing large, then the yachts of great power
and tonnage may be expected to produce the
winner. For an all-round chance, however, av
erage weather from any direction and average
luck, Wilson Marshall's American schooner At
lantic has all the qualities which should make
it the first favorite with anyone seeking to
prohesy as to the winner.
New York, May 20 From what could be
learned of the ocean racers yesterday the Ger
man schooner Hamburg led with the Atlantic
far to the eastward, but about thirty miles to
leeward. A stiff breeze blew from the northwest
at twenty-eight miles an hour The sea was
very rough. Last night the wind veered
around to the west. To the windward of the
other yachts was the Ailsa which had, however,
fallen back despite weather conditions to suit
her. The Valhalla was last with about two
hundred and twenty miles separating her from
the Hamburg. It was figured that the German
yacht had travelled 500 miles up to noon yester
day, making her ahead of the Endymion's rec
ord, despite the light wind at the start. The
last report of the Atlantic came by the steam
ship India, which sighted her heading east
southeast, logging ten knots an hour. All her
sails were set.
New York, May 20.The American bark
rigged yacht Apache, one of the contestants in
the trans-Atlantic race for the Emperor Wil
liam cup, was sighted by the steamer Princess
Alice yesterday about sixty-seven miles
east of Nantucket lighthouse ship. At that
time the Apache was running due east with
every stitch of canvas set. None of the other
racers was sighted by the Princess Alice.
TRACK ATHLETES WORK
OH NORTHROP FIELD
Great sport was expected by those in attend
ance at the relay meet at the university this
afternoon. Nebraska and Wisconsin were not
able to send teams, but there was a sufficient
number of entries from Minnesota to fill up the
events in good shape. In the preparatory school
classes entries from Shattuck, Englewood high
school. Chicago, Hamllne, Carleton, Pillsbury
and the high schools of Minneapolis and St.
Paul promised good sport.
The awakening of athletic interest at the
university this spring is in a way a forecast
of better things next year. Minnesota has the
material and the best equipped athletic plant
in the west. There is no reason why the
gophers should not stand up well with Wiscon
sin and Michigan in track athletics as well as
surpassing them In football.

home Belle of Pequest by a neck
Belmont's representatives, Tiptoe and Bivou
cas, were made favorites at 7 to 10. They did
not receive the heaviest support, however. Belle
of Pequest carried the most money. She might
have won with better luck, but Tiptoe made a
gallant struggle and won thru sheer courage.
Belle of Pequest was fouled repeatedly by Vic
tory Belle. Just as Tiptoe went to the front
Belle of Pequest challenged, but as she made
her move Victory Belle hit her and cairied her
wide. In the final furlong Tiptoe and Belel of
Pequest drew away from the field The former
had gained an early advantage and in the final
run was a half a length to the good. Belle of
Pequest caught her a sixteenth of a mile from

head In front, but by free use of the whip,

head. The weather and track were favorable
to good racing and 10,000 spectators saw some
exciting finishes. Backers of favorites cashed
four times during the afternoon.

Automobilists who are their own chauffeurs are
sometimes puzzled by a loss of compression in
the engine, for which they can find no cause.
This loss of compression occurs sometimes be
cause the piston rings within a cylinder have
worked around so that the openings in them
are in line with each other, allowing the gas to
escape. A remedy for this is to inject a few
drops of kerosene into the cylinder, so that when
the piston is driving the rings will loosen and
one or more of them work around to another

Ann Arbor, Mich Maj 20 On the eve of the
dual meet with Chicago, Keene Fitzpatrick,
Michigan's ever leticent coach, talked last night
of his team foi the first time bince preparation
for the meet began three weeks ago.
"Nearlv all Michigan men," he bald, "have
figured the dope to make Michigan win this
meet. I cannot see the grounds for their hopes,
for there are several diffeernt ways of figuring
this same dope."
Asked what these different ways were, Fitz
patrick refused to state them explicitly, but
hinted that about two of them would argue out
a victory for Michigan, while the other three
spelled victory for Chicago. Fitzpatrick would
not state In which particular events he intends
to run some of his best men. He is, holding back
his trumps until after he sees the Chicago
runners at the tape.
Weather prospects promise a perfect day for
cinder path record-breaking.
