A The First Game.
' Both teams started out with a

Aided by fast fielding. Courtney

some brilliant fielding that
cut off scores.
In the sixth, after two had singled
with one down. Jimmy took
part in a double lightning play
with Harris, retiring the side. But
he furnished a big thrill in the
eighth when Sisler doubled after
two were down. Jacobson smashed
a low grounder near first base, but

pennant winner and the team to j

Great things were expected of A1
Schacht, who started the second
game, because of the time spent
under treatment by a highly touted
bone setter up in Rochester, N. Y.
But the "doc" failed to oil all the
kinks out of Al's system, for he was
warmly greeted with three runs in
the opener. He retired early in favor
of Jose Acosta. who worked for
the first time before a local audi

when Shanks singled, stole second
and tripped home on Gharrity's
! drive toward Jacobson.
The Second flame.
Occupying the hurling pit for the
Browns when the second game
started was a certain Adrian I^ynch,
who once wore the regalia ot the
Nationals. He was alleged to be &
"find" of Mike Martin and. if this
be true. Mike found himself one of
the wildest young men in the game.
With a little practice he may soon
I rival our own Joe Engel. our peer-.
I less scout and now-and-then slabber.
Knowing the youthful Adrian of
eld. the Nationals insisted on wait- j
ing him out. This peeved him. He j
1 knew it was going to cause trouble,
) as it did. Finally the tension grew!
so great, that Adrian walked four
men in a row in the fifth and was
robly led from the field by the ever1
watchful Jimmy Burke. But that's
getting ahead of our story.
in the first inning, among other
' things, Sisler doubled and Jacobson
tripled, and Kllerbe, playing third,
booted one. so that the Browns
j opened with a three-run lead. They
came right back with three hits in
the second, but not a run because !
Brower tossed out a man at the |
plate, with the aid of Judge's arm in i
, the relay. But the frequency of hits
boded no good, so Acosta relieved

Lynch Walks a Few.
Taking advantage of Lynch's
known ability to be wild, the Nationals

Tobin's double and Harris* error

they rapped Ihree safe ones oft j
Acosta and counted two more. j
Hut a lead of six to one amounts i
to nothing when Lynch is pitching- |
His weakness cropped out again in j

IREAK EVENJOHNSTON
WINS
LONGWOOD CUP
f
Singles Champion Defeats
Niles; Cup Permanent
Possession.
I^ngwood Cricket Club, Chestnut
Hill, Mass., Aug. 17.?William M.
Johnston, of California, national
singles champion of the United
States, won permanent possession of
the famous Longwooil Cup here this
afternoon by defeating; Nat Niles in
three straight sets in the challenge
round, 6?4, 6 0, 6 0.
It was the third time Johnston
has won the Longwood Cup, and it
is now his property.
The champion outclassed Niles
and won as he pleased. A good gallery
turned out to see the meeting.
Play in the national doubles was
suspended.
The national v champion began
service In the first set and Niles
broke through and took the first
game. Johnston -4n turn broke
through Niles' service and then won
his own, leading at 2 to 1. Niles
won his service and evened the set.
The champion then began driving
beautifully and reeled off the next
three games in decisive fashion,
leading, 5 to 2.
The challenger rallied and took
the next two, but Johnston would
not be denied, and won' the final
game and set on service, 6?4.
Johnnton Superb. i
Johnston was in superb form In
the second set. He opened by win- I
ning a love game -on service and
then ran through Niles'for a love
set, 6?0. The champion drove
beautifully from the back lino and
continually tricked Niles out of
position for passing shots. His
service was also severe.
The third was a repetition of the 1
second set. Johnston played su- '
perbly, and won the first five games
handily. Needing only one more
game for the set, match, and Long- i
wood Cup, Johnston broke through j
Niles' service and won the set, G?0.

Tilden and Garland defeated Poyne '
and Rrain in three straight sets, 6-0,

I round in the lower half.

Jerry Conway, the husky leffcI
bander who was sipnerl by Nick Al- ,
trock in Holyoke, Mass., reported to
Griffith yesterday and warmed up I
during the second gamp. He stands
about 6 feet 2 inches, and seems to1
have a world of speed and "stuff."
In addition to pitching. Conway is j
also a good first saeker and a fine i
bat ter.
Brower went hitless in the first
game, though he smashed several |
hard drives and landed a single to
right in the second in four times at
bat. He handled seven fielding '
chances in the second affray in fine !
st vie.
Celebrating his return to the gam#1.
Stanley Harris landed two hits in
each battle, and also did some beautiful
fielding work, despite his three
errors.
James Aloysius Shaw will probably
hurl against the Browns today,
with Shocker as his opponent. Besting
Shocker is one of the toughest
assignments any pitcher can draw
these days.

WINSTON AND
ALOYSIUS TIE
Independents in Near Riot
I
On Umpire's
Decision.
The game staged between the
Winston A. C. and the Aloysius A.
C. at Cnion Park yesterday in one
of the independent series games for j
the championship of the city proved
a thriller. The ^ame was called on |
| account of darkness, as- was the !
case the day before, but there was |
I no decision, so to speak, as the
I teams battled to a 4 to 4 tie. Over |
1 a decision of Umpire Doyle there j
| was so much trouble and disorder j
| that it was necessary to have police |
protection for the arbitrator, who j
j left the field with one of the guardians
of the law.
The teams put up a spirited fight j
during the five innings played. Da- j
vis went on the slab for the Aloysius
men and looked good for four ?
innings. Then the miserable work j
of his mates in the field had such j
a bad effect on him that the op- j
ponents might have sent him to the j
I showers had the battle been length- j
j ened.
I The trouble, which cropped up in
'the game, came when the Winstons
went into the field after they had !
| batted in the sixth inning, and 1
seemingly thought that they had J
j been regularly retired. The mis- !
i take was noticed as the first batter ;
for the Aloysius weryt to the plate, i
Only two outs were officially re- j
corded, so the sides had to change j
back again to the first half of the
j sixth inning. Before the second j
ball had been pitched Umpire Doyle i
called the game on acount of dark- j
ness. i
Immediately the Winston men
crowded around the arbitrator and j
angrily argued that th#> Aloysius ,
had deliberately stalled and kept i
the gam?- at five innings and a tie 1
score. They also persisted that the :
game should go on until the sixth
had been completed or at least un- j
til thev harl ?

PLAN PROTEST
Banishment of Girl Mays
May Be Demanded, with
Strike as Alternative.
?
By GEORGE L. MORELA> D.
Aroused by the death of Ray Chap- ,
man, star Cleveland shortstop, as j
the result of being- hit in the head
by a ball pitched by Carl Mays, of
the New York Americans, Washing- '
ton and St. Louis players, in a meeting
held before yesterday's doubleheader,
decided to demand the banishment
of the New York pitcher
from baseball, or to refuse to take
P?art In any game in which Mays !
pitches.
Similar action is reported to have
been taken by the Boston and De- ]
troit clubs in Boston, and it is be- I
lieved the movement will spread j
throughout the entire league.
Feeling among the Washington j
and St. Louis men was bitter. Players
who as a usual thing have few ;
words to say were violent in their |
denunciation of Mays. This Was es- I
pecially true of the St. Lxiuis men.
as the result of narrow escapes Sisler,
Severeld and othprs had wh?n
Mays nearly beaned them in a recent
series in St. Louis. Sharp words
passed between these players and
the Yankee pitcher, and a physical
encounter was narrowly averted. I
Prompt action by the players Is
predicted, with an ultimatum going
to President Ban Johnson to keep
Mays out of baseball.
War on Bean Ball.
With the players of the league
fully aroused, it is predicted that
Chapman's death will bring about
the final abolishment of the bean
ball. Clark Griffith, president of the
local club, Indicates that he will
take a leading hand in bringing this
about. Mays, he declares,-has been
beaning players for a long time, and
it is time the practice be done away
with in the league.
Had this action been taken last
winter when President Griffith of
the local club and others asked to
have a rule made on this kind of a
pitch. Chapman would have been
alive today.
It may be true that Manager
Speaker of the Cleveland club says
it was an accident, but that is not
going to make hundreds of ball
players believe it.
Mays has hit many batters in his
time and this year he has beaned
25 m^n in 32 games. Many may
have been accidents, as he will
claim, but the fact is that no person
who knows will believe it. The
fact is. Mays has deliberately hit
batters and says he has done it on
purpose.
I'ratt (liven May* Anar,
Only last Sunday the writer was
talking to Pel Pratt, second base-,
man of the Yankees, about hitting
batters and what several pitchers
have done. "Why." came the reply,
"we have one on our team that
makes no bones about what he is
going to do. Only the other day we
held a meeting in the club house
previous to an important pame
(Prutt would not say which game).
Wo were talking over how he
would pitch to th#> different batters.
'Well,' replied Mays, 'first I will
dust him off and then fe*d him ont>
owr the corner.' Wh^n he made
this remark he also said: I don t
rare what you fallows say about it.
1 know I have no friends on this
team and I am going to do what 1
want." "
"Chapman's d*ath is going to
cause more trouble than any oth#*r
case in the history of baseball,"!
said one of the local players.
"Players on every team in the
Amerioan League will take action
and, if I am not mistaken, wilt
refuse to play in any game that
Mays is slatod t?? pitch.'' The play
or. and he is one of the leaders
in the gam. . says that the ball
players should take the case to
President Johnson and tell him in
plain words that they would rofuse
to play if Mays is on the card
to pitch.
Strike Talk Heard.
This appears to bo th#? sontiment
of every man on the Washington
and St. Louis clubs, and word from
Boston is that the players on both
tho Detroit and Boston clubs are
ready to strike and force Mays out
of the game. The players up there
have started action to this effect,
and it would be no surprise if the
same action is taken by every club
in the American League.
George Sisler?and there is no
finer ball player in the game than
[ this sterling man?said yesterday
j that hardly a game Mays pitches
ngainst the Browns doesn't see a
I batter hit. "Why. 1 have had so
many close calls that 1 <'an not
remember them. Not a time I go
to bat but what I do not have to
dodge at least one of them," Sisler
i continued.
| Hank Severeid is also ready to
I make a statement that he has been
j nu more man one**. oniy <*. cuupie
I of weeks ago when we beat the
j Yanks three out of five gampp. Mays
told me that he would bean me
every time he got a chance," he
said.
Several of the Browns also re!
marked on the many close escapes
j that they have ba<1 and1 not one
(could be made to believe that Mays'
hitting Ray Chapman was an acI
cident. Hank said he would not
| believe it under oath.

Tram Feels Hi* Lou.
Members of the Cleveland team,
heartbroken at the loss of their fellow
player, who was the favorite of
the team, were incensed today at apparent
efforts in local sporting circles
to whitewash Mays Without
openly charging the New York pitcher
with intentionally striking Chapman
in the head, they plainly made
it known that an investigation was
necessary.
Mays has a peculiar manner of
throwing the ball, delivering in a
long, sweeping underhand movement
so that it rises toward the bat
difficult for even the best bitters to
guess whether the ball is to currs '
or be straight. Frequent complaint
against his pitching often has been
made.
Up until a late hour tonight Mays
had not been arrested, although in
the normal course of events, had he
been driving an automobile and run
down Chapman, killing him. tha
nearest policeman would have placed
him under arrest and a charge of
manslaughter mould have been
placed against him. This charge.
Cleveland fans maintain, if not a
more serious one. should have been
placed against Mayft today at least
as a formality.

This had not been done, despite
the fact that May* went to the
district attorney s office today, ac-*

"It was a straight, fast ball I
threw, such as I had delivered hun*
dr?-d.? of times, and 1 can't understand
h<?w it happened. I followed
Chapman into the players' house
and he looked up at me and said:
It's all right. Carl. Everything will
be all right.'
"I never threw a ball with tha
intention of hurling any ball player,
much less Ray."

Ty Cobb, on one occasion, however.
accused Mays of att'-mpting

in the game. It mas generally conceded
