Tigers Helpless Before
Johnson's Terrific vSpeed
Walter Is Master of the Bengals, and Result Is Never
in Doubt Moeller, Foster, and Milan Hit Well
Final Count Is '4 to 0.
Br WILLIAM PERT.
Detroit, Mich., Aug. 2. Walter Johnson's terrific speed tied the
Tigers into knots here this afternoon, and the Climbers were able to
make it two out of three in the present series, by a 4 to 0 score.
As the Boston brigade put the skids under St Louis in the Mound
City, no gain was made on the league leaders, but no ground was lost
either, and it's a iJ&od, even-money bet that the Red Sox are doing a
whole lot more worrying than are the Nationals, and with Griffs ath

engage in a contest of skill and
brawn. He reserves for himself the
right to criticise the work of the
Appeal to Ban Johnson.
But the introduction of professional
comedy Into organized baseball tends to
lighten Interest in the serious side of the
game and by so doing Is very apt to
work a serious Injury to the national
pastime in the near future.
It Is hinted that an appeal has been
made to Ban Johnson to legislate
against the antics of Schaefer and Alt
rock on the coaching lines and if the
league h-ad decides to do so. Wash
ington fans will miss seeing the funniest
act ever attempted on a ball field.
Clark Griffith takes the stand that the
comedy peddled out by Schaefer and Alt
rock Is not a detriment to the game, that
It keeps the players of both teams on
their toes and Is only a harmless amuse
Many of the club owners with teams
lower in the race than Washington are
just a wee bit jealous of the Nationals
and If Altrock and Schaefer are not
permitted to pull off their comedy stuff,
It will be an easy matter to trace the
source of complaint, and there will like
Iy be some, lively tilts before the 1912
Grlfl on the Job.
Griff will hae something to say re
garding the matter, and will not lie Idle
while folks are trying to slip something
over on him.
The sudden change In the weather from
Washington to the Middle West has been
disastrous to several of the members of
Griffs family. Eddie Foster caught cold
In his arm recently, and his whip Is so
lame he can hardly take off his hat.
