OFFICER! CALL A HOLIDAY! CHANCE IS HERE
Johnson Gets Shutout Record
News of tho Boxers.
,When he held St Louis .scoreless
for 3 1-3 innings yesterday Walter
Johnson established a record of hav
ing pitched 56 innings without a run
being made against him. This breaks
all previous marks, as it has been
found that the claims made for Doc
White were not authentic Doc
pitched shut-out ball for 46 innings
back in 1904, according to official
statistics, and Jack. Coombs wielded
the whitewash brush, for 53 innings
some years ago.
Johnson pitched six innings
against the Browns, being scored on
once. As Washington had counted
ten. times he was relieved by Boeh
ling, and will be given a rest until
the next series. Griffith realizes his
big smoke man is good for a win
most any time he pitches, and does
not want to waste him.
With his six innings yesterday,
Johnson has pitched 59 2-3 innings
this season. In that time only two
runs have been scored on 'him, and
one of these counted on errors. Yes
terday's tally registered, on a double
and single. It was Johnson's ninth
straight win of the season. He is
proving that he was not a flash last
year in the consecutive win race, as
were Wood and Marquard. These
two phenoms of last year have been
weak sisters so far this campaign.
Johnny Coulon, bantam champ,
has been matched to fight Charley
Goldman 12 rounds in Boston next
Thursday night. Coulon'is to receive
a guarantee of $1,200.
Kid Williams of Baltimore, whojs
after Johnny Conlon, knocked out
Young Diggins in four rounds at
Baltimore. Williams almost won, in
the first round.
Harry Donahue of Pekin shaded
Mickey Sheridan of Chicago In ten.

Lamp the position of the cringing:
Cubs. Yesterday they were last in
the first division. Today they, are
first in the second division. Evers is
determined his men shall stay on top,
even if it is the top of the second sec
tion. But there is little TiQncr in head
ing the second platoon.
Whfle the atmosphere has been,
all het up here with loud yelps about
crime trusts, etc., Johnny Evers has
been, discovering a ring of crooks in
the East First he went to Brooklyn,
and Bill Dahlen and his assistant
pickpockets went through Evers
pants for three games. Then McGraw
and his jackrollers repeated the
treatment in New York, and TJmps
Klem and Orth doubled as bouncers
and put John in the cooler, where
he didn't cooL
That js tragic-enough, but any old
clairvoyant, even without the use of
a white envelope, can see John's
path is going to be crossed by a Ted
haired person. Well forgive Red
Dobin is ha just crosses the path.
