"Wild 35111" Donovan Is Touched
Up for Three Twn-llaggers
in Fifth limine;.
YERKES PITCHES A GOOD GAME.
Keeps ISrookl.vn Hits Well tieat
lered and Shuts Out Visitors
in All but Two
Three two-base hits of the Cardinal va
riety In the ' fifth lnnlns of yesterday's
same at League Park proved the undoing
of "Wild BIU" Donovan, the man from
Brooklyn with the underhand delivery. Mr.
Donovan, -who is no relation to P. J., left
the earth for a moment, and before he re
turned the Cardinals were busily engaged
in th manufacturing of runs. Before JuilRes
Power and Brown could issue an umpirical
injunction the tribe of Donovan had earned
three rm.f. The final score was 4 to ".
It was a narrow escape from a shut
out for "Wi e Willie" Keelcr t Co. "Yank"
Ytrkes expended much energy fanning the
atmosphere when facing Donovan, hut he
pitched an excellent game, and only for
KcWer's fast foot work in beating out a
bunt in tho seventh Inning and Tim Flood's
Ion? hit in the ninth, the Uaulonltes would
have drawn nine horse collars as the day's
rations The Superbas could not bunch
hits, and the well-nigh perfect fielding he
hind Ycrkes choked off a number of runs.
Certain it Is that the Cardinals are devel
oping into a good hitting team. Nichols-,
Kvan and Y'erkes were the only ones who
tilled to figure in tho bingling. Itoy Bra
shear led the bunch with three safeties, oue
of the scratch variety. Farrell, Smoot and
Hartman connected twice apiece and at
the right time.

It was a prett even proposition up to th?
Cf;h inning. Notwithstanding various
ci.jaur attractions, the fans attended in
ironjiv numbers and witnessed a reversal

i.tit,'m.i4ier Hartman changed ivositions
with Kruyer and played a nice short-field
C::.-. His only offense was a bad throw.
The outfield had plenty of work to do and
diil it without a sembl.mce of an error.

the breach with a nlee rap o-er :-eco!id. Do

j.i.ttiest s:icit!ire hits of tho day. He laid
the bull down on the third-baso line and

cnuhl not retire Barclay, but threw Ityan
out at first. Yorkt-s then fanned, retiring
Barclav started tho third inning with a
flv to .limmy Pheekard and ICruger made
thre vain swipes at the hall. It looked
like a score when Hartman and Brashcar
1 oblvd up with successive singles and
Donovan filled the bases by Issuing trans
portation to Ryan. It wan up to Yerltes
t:t,ain and again did he claw the air in a
vain endeavor to hit something substan
tial. He brought his bat only half nay
aiound on the ball on which he was called
out. but Charley Tower declared a strike
t'nrdin:il J-numli the llnll.
"Blasted Hotk-s" was the sign hung out
in front of the Brooklyn shop during the;
imiimrs and the visitors" chances lor vic
tnrv begap to fade when the pyrotechnics
were put on in the fitth Inning. Jonathan
l'arrell again led on" with a swift liner to
left that carried a two-base tag. Nichols,
trying to bunt, lifted a puny liy to Dono
van "Hummer" Smox smashed the ball
down through Donovan. The Brooklyn
pitcher deflated the course of tho ball and
Dahlen and Flood collided while trying for
the stop. The ball rolled out to center and
l'arrell scored. Barclay smote the leather
far out between Sheekard and Dolan for
two baes. Smoot could have scored, as
the relay was bad. but Bot Wicker held
him at third. Krugcr planted a beautv to
right and Smoot scored, followed by Bar
clay. The "Deerfoot" gave a great exhi
bition of sprinting, but he might have,
spared himself the effort as llcCrecrj
muffid the relay.
Mavbo the tans didn't "whoop em up
when Hartman laced the leather far an
other of his long hits. Sheekard did a great
rrrint back to the bleachers hut he barely
touched the ball. The "Tumble Bug" re
turned the ball quickly and held Kruger at
third. Hartman roosttd on second and the
fans could already see more runs coming
over the rlate as there was only one out.
It was a good beginning hut the ending
was very sad. Brashcar and Ityan sent up
high fouls which came down and nestled In
Duke Farrell's pi'.ow. That was the end of
the scoring for St. Louis.
Captain Willie Keeler ivas the whole show
in the sixth inning for Brooklyn, and scored
the onlv run for his team. The little tlug
gcr beat out an inlleld hit, went to second
on Shcknil's hih rap to Barclay ami to
third on MeCreery's single. Dahlen's long
flv was captured by Smoot, but Keeler easi
ly scored. McCreery then expired whil
trvir.g to pilfer second. Flood led off lu a
single in the ceventh. but the visitors were
retired on a double play.
llrnoklns Try Ilnril to Score.
With a lead of three runs, tho Cardinals
felt comparatively safe, but, remembering
the day that New York turned the table:-,
were a bit nervous in the eighth lnnu.g,
when tho Bridegrooms made a desperate
attfmpt to reverse the situation. Dolan lilt
to Brartienr and beat Roy to the bag.
Keeler got on the circuit on a fumble by
Farrell and Sheekard advanced both on a
fly to Nichols. There was nothing doing,
however, as McCreery was an easy out,
Hartman to Brashrar.
With dcstierate energy the Superbas la
bored to tie the score in the ninth, nnd did
succeed in getting one run over the plate
Dahlen was the man who counted at the
plate and he got on base on Hartman'3
high throw of his grounder. Tim Flood
had no pity on his own twonspeople and
d-ove the leather far out to right. Nichols
backed up against the bleachers, but the
ball struck over his head. A quick throw
kept Dahlen on third. Irwin aired to Smoot
and Dahlen chased himself in to the score
station. Krugcr made a questionable play
on Duke Farrell's grounder. Flood was
nearlv on him when he made the stop, but
without trying to nab Tim. Kruger threw
Farrell out at firrt and Flood reached third

up as if he confidently expected the game

McAleer's Statement Apparently a Case of Sour Grapes
Malouey Has Yet to Be Corrupted Cardinals' Bitching
Staff Must Be Improved if Team Is to Make a
Showing Gossip of the St. Louis Teams.
WRITTEN FOR THE SUNDAY IlEI'tJBLIC.
Tho St. Louis American League team has
been weakened by the desvrtion of Davy
Jones,' the most promising young outfielder
that has loomed up on the local horizon for
many a -easoil It is a case of sour grapes
with Manager Mc-Ueer, when ho claims
Uiat Davy did him 11 favor by jumping.
However, managers are supposed to make
"smoke talk," but local followers of the
game feel genuine regret over the loss of
How does it happen that McAleer chanced
Ills mind so suddenly about Jones? Early
in the season In- often relerred to him as
a coming star, and boosted him to the
skies, but words of praise were not spoken
where th- would iiave borne truit ('.in
it be possible that so good a judge of ball
players as McAh-er. once a great fielder,
could be so mistaken hi Jones'.' Certainly
not. The fact of the matter Is that Jones
was not accorded right treatment by the
members' of the Browns a statement which
lias been set forth in these columns before.
Jones is a lad who is getting a bad reputa
tion for his alleged "jumping" tactics which
he does not wholly deserve.
When the Milwaukee club was transferred
to St. IOUls Jones expressed his dislike over
the change. He is a Wisconsin boy. and
possibly he didn't like to get so far away.
If ho possesses no honor, then why did he
insist that in his contract with the Chicago
club that a clause be Inserted that would
release him from his obligation in case he
decided to go to St- Louis? It has gradu
ally been dawning on me that Jones's en
gagement with the St. Louis club was due
more to a "bluff" than anything else. Any
one wiio knows McAleer knows- that Uic Is
a. man of conside-i:ble force, and, being an
old baseball politician, he convinced Jones,
a vouth just out of college, that he might
ho" "sent up" for life if he "Jumped" his
Jones does not possess any of tho tenden
cies of a rowdy player. Indeed, his lack of
aggressiveness amounts almost to a fHUlt.
Hi. companions or. the team had little in
common with him They rarely spoke to
him off the ball field; never tried to "show
him around." Of course, they were nt
dutv bound lo do these things, but Jonc-s
felt their slights just the same. Whenever
they spoke to him it was gencrallv a 'jol
lv." Not being a member of tho "se!f
admtration society." Jonei did not stand In.
It is true that he man t develop a bat
ting streak that was expected of him, but
as none of the Browns are batting like
Iiioies. there is no reason why he should
have been singled out on this account. Two
week? at the beginning of the season do
not suilli-e to show a player's strength or
weakness. As a chaser of fly balls Jones
Is the equal of Burkett or Helarlck. Ho
displays rar Judgment, and bis fleetnees
enabled him to gather In many nn aerial
rap that would have been a hit with an
other player in the field. He is possessed of
a good throwing arm, n good recommenda
tion for a fielder.
Jones was "done to a turn" by Manager
McAleer for a fielding break at Cleveland
that lost the game lor Bt- Louis. Cleve
land pres3 accounts of that game lay the
blame equally on Heldnck. Both were
chasing the ball, hut for fear of a col
lision Loth stopped at the wrong moment
and tho ball dropped to the ground. Davy
did not relish such treatment. A few dajs
previous ho had saved Willie Sudhoff from
defeat by two great throws in from ihe
field after catching files. Both nipped men
at the plato and Secretary Hedges says
thev were th best pieces of fielding ne
has" seen this vear. Yet Jones was given
ail official raking for the break at Cleve
land. He was told that it would probably
cost him bis release. He certainly cannot
bo blamed then for joining the Orphans.
He knew that Hart would receive him with
cpen arms, and he went to him at once, ill
order to get Dlaced before Selee made up
his team for the season. Perhaps he will
be appreciated at ChUao. He rertalnly
did not receive much encouragement in at.
Louis. . ,, ...
It is not anything to Maloney discredit
to sav that he does not rank with Jones
as a fielder. He is the fleetest member of
the team, hut he is a catcher, not a fielder.
He mav eventually develop Into a fielder, na
he has" ambitions that way But the shift
weakens the Browns behind the bat. sug
den is being overworked, and Donohue has
yet to show thnt ho can class with a team
that on form should win the iwrniant. It
1- -i t-i-v tones thnt he be nut right
before the public. Undoubtedly he "jumped"
a contract, out am noi peverui uure; ......-
bers of the Browns do the same to get Into
the American League? It is a poor rule
that doesn't work both ways. Here a good
luck to Jones in Chicago.

Came Emls In Score of 13 to 30 Mncli
Rivalry In the Contest.
In nn interesting ball game on the Chris
tian Brothers' oarnpus yesterday, the C B.
C. nine defeated St. Louis University's team
bv a score of II to 10, getting twelve hits
off Fltzporter and E. Qummersbach, and
making nine errors as opposed to sis by the
Grand avenue men. Gummersbach was
knocked out 'of the box in the sixth inning
and Fltzporter was sent to relieve him.
The meeting between the colleges excited
great interest among the partisans of both
schools and the attendance at the game was
good. JCano and O'Connor showed well at
battery work and played a strong game
throughout. Cummins did some good work
at second for C. B. C,. while Corbett played
& EOO& game for the-unlverslty.
Billy Maloney has not as yet accepted
the offer made "him by New York, and Sec
retary Hedges does not lielleve that he
will. The doughty secretary Intimates that
lie will go the limit with J. Andrew Freed
man or" anv other magnate that tries to
steal ids players. Mr. Hedges is a good
man to have at the head of a baseball club.
He Is willing to bid; his convictions and
the American league gained in strength
when he was Induced to enter the ranks.
It would be a sad blow indeed if Moloney
were to quit. He i a sure comer. He was
lndlrectlv "Eeomded" by an agent of the
National League in St. Liui?. as were other
members of the Browns, and the informa
tion thus gained was transmitted to the
people who paid to get it.

on the "road. Friday's game at Chicago
ts a proof that there are a number of teams
in the American I-eague that are pretty
evenlv matched. Nine times out of ten.
Powe'll would have won his game pitching
in such form, but when the team behind
him is not hitting he is not to be blamed
for losing. He is a good pitcher, who holds
the MeAIeerites to one hit. Thnt Cleve
land bunch has won but five games, and
three of them were taken from St. Louis.
Such is form in baseball.
The Cardinals need some bolstering, but
at present the Messrs. Bohison do not seem
to b.- making much of an effort to recruit
tho team. The pitching staff is dcplor.ibly
weak. Wicker is getting poor breaks, and
Murphv and Yerkes are the only other
twirlers who can be relied on. Jo -e
O'Neill has- failed to make good this .'prlng.
He gave muc i promise of becommc a ,tood
hitting pitcher la: fall, hut h- dr.es.it

has had considerable experience in the out
field and can bo UFerl as utility man in
case he fails to "come in." Popp does not
seem to be of major league c.illher. He
was signed last fall more because he had
a "pull." and was a St. Louis boy, tnati
anything else, but it probably will be Back

There ;-re few chances to pick up good
twirlers at this time. Mai Hison apparent

litt. who was relea-ed by Pittsburg, mfeht
prove a good investment. He was released
because Drevfuss didn't have room for him.
not because' he wasn't of major-league cal
iber. With proper coaelun;. Roy Bmshear
should develop into a fair lirst-baseman.
He is 'luiclt and fully alert to the duties
of his position. Ho is more, at home, how

Ho is beginning to hit. hut the trouble h,

more than balances his fielding deficiencies.
Parrel is an easy, graceful plover -and a
reliable hitter. Hartman has made hut few
errors of late, end he occasionally dca's
ort a corking good hit. Kruger Is good at
times und very had on some occasions.
Withal he is a gritty little fellow and has
not missed a game for two s-easons. He s
tho tvst hitter on the team thus far this
season, but his laserunnlng at times has
been decidedly raw.
The plaver who has shown the most im
provement, however. Is- Homer Smoot. the
Worcester lad. Smdot came here with a
reputation as a slugger, v. h ch he failed to
live up 10 nt the becluning of the season.

has turned some nice running catches. His
h'tting h- improved a hundred per cent.
He has qu't" n nice stock of extra base
drives and of late has been getting from
two to three hits every game.
'Tin a pity that Arthur Nichols can't get
in the game with greater frequency. That

he' has developed good hitting ability, iha

Diminutive St. Louis Twirler Lasts
but Four Innings Chicago
Ties the Score in the
Chicago. 111.. May 17. The- White Stock
ings are making a desperate effort to even
up matters with the Browns by taking the
entire series of four games now on. They
piobably will hit the mark if Umpire John
stone continues to rentier decisions like the
two which this afternoon sent Captain Pad
den from the grounds.
The trouble started in the first inning
when Johnstone called Burkett out at tho
plato when It appeared he had beaten the
throw several feet. Then on I.sbell's at
tempt to steal second Padden advanced to
meet the runner with the hall, but again
Johrstone said "Safe."
Captain Dick was sore and told Johnstone
what he thought of him in burning words.
Johnstone then ordcied him out of the
game, and because he did not move fast
enough he was expelled from the grounds.
lYiti took his place at .second.
Si.dhoft las-ted only four innings and the
Chkugoans connected with his curves, at
will, itcldy, who relieved him. was steady
the remainder of the route. The score was
6 to i.
Burkett opened the game auspiciously for
St. Louis when he waited for a'freo pass
to first. Heidritk was safe on Daly's error
and Davis, backing up Daly, ihot the ball
over Strang's head to the fence, while Bur
kett kept on going for home. Strang threw
to the plate and Johnstone called Burkett
While; the argument was In progress Held
nck kept running and scored a moment
later on Maloney's single- to left. Anderson
forced Maloney at second. Wallace hit a
fly in left, far back of third. Strang and
Merles humped noses while the ball fell to
the ground, Anderson scoring the second
and last run for St. Louis.
Strang opened for Chicago with a single.
Jones bunted safely. Green also bunted,
but Sudhoff threw Strang out at the plate.
Davis bun tea safely and Jones scored. Mer

Wallace to Anderson. This tied the St
Louis score. Two more runs came In the
third. Green singled and Davis was hit bv
pitched ball. Mertes singled and Isbcll's
long fly to right scored the second run. Sul
livan's free pass and Dingles by Strang and
Jones in the fourth gave the fifth run and
in the seventh Green's double and Isbell's
single brought in the final run.
