McGraw Attacked By Brennan
Philly Defense Crack?.
The Phillies are apparently in for
a.temporary crack over the strain for
keeping up in the National League
pennant race. Making the pace,
closely pursued by the Giants, was
too much for Dooin's men. They
dropped a weird game to New York
yesterday, and the Gothamites
slipped into first place. Several in
cidents showed the strain under
which the Phils have been traveling.
Point one was an attack made on
Manager McGraw of the Giants by
Pitcher Ad Brennan of the Phils after
the game. Brennan claims McGraw
taunted "him during the battle, and
when the teams were going to the
dressing rooms threatened to "get
him." Believing he was to be at
tacked, Brennan delivered a healthy
clout of McGraw's jaw and the little
leader went down. In the melee he
was either struck in the ear by Bren
nan or was kioked by a Philly player
while on the ground. Accounts of
the fight differ here. Giant players
say a Phil kicked their boss. Bren
nan saya he slit McGraw's hearing
apparatus with a left hook.
President Lynch of the National
will make an investigation, and a stiff
fine ahd suspension for some one is a
The Phillies fielding was ragged.
They seemed to be scared to death.
Doolan made four errors, Magee
muffed a fly and Paskert fumbled a
single. These things were disastrous.
At the bat the Phils showed their
mechanical ability to whale the pill.
It may be that Dooin's men will
play better ball when they have the
Giants to set the pace. There is
great strength in the Quaker lineup.
The recent slump is nothing more
than is suffered by all teams. Those
who cojmt the Phillies out of the race
Are making a sad mistake.

President Tebeau of the Louisville
American Association Club conferred"
with President Murphy of the Cubs
today in an effort to secure one or
more players to be released by the
West Side magnate.
Late this afternoon it was reported'
that Tebeau had completed a deal for
a left-handed pitcher now with the'
Cubs. He wants an outfielder also,
but will probably be disappointed. If
Otis Clymef is released he will be Ben
to Minneapolis, from which team he
was taken by the Cubs.
A popular pastime lately has been
declaring that President Murphy 61
the Cubs Is going to let a player or
two go "immediately." Notwith
standing all this expert information,
the West Side magnate has rfbt pull
ed off any deals. But the time has
come when he can hesitate no long
er. One aspiring gent must be sev
ered from the payroll in a day or so.

York, Pa., team, joined the Cyb squad."
