The loss of yesterday's game but con
firms the fact that the pitching staff
Is shot to pieces. Hughes pitched an
excellent game against Detroit before
the team went away, and In jls return
performance yesterday waa banged all
over the lot The youngsters wjll surely
get a chance on the mound in the next
few days. f
Hughes got walloped.
The Boston Nationals, Pittsburgh and
the Chicago Cubs were all after Chick
Oandll, lately acquired for the first
sacking job by Manager Griffith. Gan
dll Is termed as a finished fielder, but
his forte is 'hitting the ball. He hits to
all parts of the field and was selected
for the all-Mar team in the Interna
tional League last year,
Young Walker shines again.
The trade which Involved Buck Becker
brings to light the Interesting fact that
the Nationals now or minus thnlr only

the distinction of being the only Ameri
can League club to be without a left
hander. Becker and Akera shptlfd make
good In the league.

NEW YORK, May 28.-Before agree
ing to take his place in the line-up of
the Montreal club, Bill Cunningham.
who left for Buffalo this morning,
means to have a long and earnest con
ference with Manager Billy Lush, of
the Royals, and he declares that he will
not sign with the International Leaguers
. unless they assume his contract with
,thc Washington club.
"1 don't Intend to stand for any cut
tlng,'' said Cunningham to the writer,
"and this Montreal club has an evil
reputation In this respect. I want to
,' play ball, of course, but I don't want to
have my salary cut In half. This Is one
thing I refuse to endure, cutting my
salary. If Lush wants me for his club,
he will have to pay me the money.'
Cunningham alone, of the three
players sent to Montreal for Gandll, Is
inclined to feel peeved. Furthermore,
he blames Jimmy McAleer for his trou
bles during the last two seasons, re
membering that rubber shirt at At
lanta, and claiming that his long loaf
of two winters ago, followed by the At
lanta training trip, setUed his case In
the big league.
Moeller Goes Home.
Dan Moeller has gone to his home In
Relnbeck, Iowa, and will Join the team
In St. Louis Saturday. His shoulder is
yery lame and 8ore, and It may be two
weeks before he will be able to take
his place in the outfield again. Mean
while, Howard Shanks is filling his
place acceptably in the field, but is yet
to .equal him at the bat and on the
' Without Moeller leading off the Na-
'tionals seem much slower, and Eddie
j; 'Foster has completely lost his confl-
.'dence without his side partner. The
'loss of the Rochester rambler, just
'when he was going like a house afire,
,1b a severe blow to the team, and has
'already been felt. '

"Slim" Caldwell, the telegrapher

but yesterday he was master of his own
destiny, captain of his own soul. Ex
cept in the sixth frame he could not
be solved successfully when blngles
would mean tallies. Ho whiffed just
ten of his opponents, and Milan drew
his lone free pass to first.
Indeed, In searching the underbrush
for the reason foe the Nationals' de
feat, Caldwell must be examined and
found worthy of suspicion. Caldwell
was there with chimes chiming.

front of the plate, scoring on Hartzell's
double to left. Dolan strolled. Sweeney
fanned, but Caldwell's fast drive leaped
off Foster's shins into left and Hartzell

along the left foul line, scoring Dolan
and Caldwell. Friends. Bertie should
be known as Mike. Pat. or Zacharlah,
anything but Bertie. Four runs weie

Explosion No. 2 was shown in the

her great Joy as the home boys ran

putting the runner on second to open
the affair. Sweeney's bunt gave him a

Daniels collided with his second triple to

Milan. Bertie, my word, what a mis

over with the final tally of the contest.

Concerning J. Coombs.
The report that Johnny Coombs was all In, down
and out, trapped and passe, is being indignantly denied
by those clubs called upon to face him at stated inter
vals. The Konnebunk Express may not be running upon
Its former schedule, but as long as it is delivering tho
frolght and making the main stops there is little room
left for adverse criticism.
The Colby Carbine Is an automatic repeater which
doesn't fire many blank shells. And it might also be
noted in passing that with the selfsame Mr. Coombs
back at his post there will soon be as much of a flutter
In the first division as there Is in the egg market
of late spring.
Tho Browns return home soon for twonty games.
"With thla long home stay," remarks Manager Wallace,
.'I expect to cinch the cellar championship again. Out
on the road we frequently go up in tho air a.nd win
unexpectedly. But the club that can lose to ub upon

Two thousand wrestling fans who saw
the huge mat carnival at the Gayety
Theater last night are today declaring
that it was the most spectacular and
scientific exhibition of the sport ever
seen in Washington. With three big
matches, which Included every style and
weight of wrestler, the lovers of the
game for once had their fill.
The consensus of opinion Is that the
bouts between Turner and Evans and
Americus and Perrelll were tied for
honors, both having brought out many
features of the game never seen here
Americus and Perrelll put up twu
clever bouts, the former seeming to be
at a disadvantage on account of not
being trained down. Perrelll showed
himself to be a heavyweight wrestler of
the first water and he withstood the at
tack of Americus well.
The Montano-Jordan event was fast
from the beginning. Montano showed
much ability and his strength stood him
In good stead at all times, but the suave
cleverness of Jordan was too much for
the Italian. Jordan took the first two
falls, Montana falling to get a down.
During the evening a token In the
