enough runs to maintain a lead

small end of the deal. Kummer went
to pieces In the first and second
rounds and the Navy Yard team made

BENEFIT GAME FOR
Today at Union League Park a bene-'
fit game for the stranded members of
the Washington outlaw banehall team
will be played between that organiza
tion and the Washington Giants. Pfef
fer will pitch for the unfortunate play
ers who are left here without expense
money. Stonewall Jackson will ascend
tho mound for the Giants.
The straw that broke. the camel's back
has been added to the load. With a
game scheduled with Cincinnati of the
United States League, the Bandits be
took themselves to Union League Park
yesterday only to find the opponents'
bench empty and bare and a note pasted
on the wall saying that the Cincinnati
team had made Its departure for Rich
mond. Two more games are scheduled
between these tpams.
All of this, mind you, without any
warning, without even a telephone mes
sage to President Mockabee, who has
been struggling so hard for the past
week to conduct a ball team that would
reflect credit upon tho Nation's Capital.
Few but who are familiar with the
troubles the Bandits have encountered
since their Invasion of the ranks of the
United Statps League. The circuit's
schedule began on May 1 with the
Washington team playing In Richmond.
There was a goodly attendance. The
three eames or the Initial series In the
Virginia capital were played with much'
success, after which the team went to
In Gotham a fair patronage was on
hand to greet the Bandits. Officials an
nounced that enough money was taken
'n nt the gate to pay expenses and only
the most encouraging statements for the
success of the organization were given
out. After three games In New York,
Reading, Pa., was visited, where a
trio of contests were staged. The num
ber of spectators at the games became
smaller In the Pennsylvania town and
when the Reading and Washington
clubs came to this city they received no
attention whatever from tho fans.
At the first game at Union League
Park, exactly fifty-one spectators greet
ed the outlaws. Washington won Its
game that day. The next day Reading
and Washington lined up again, barely
seventy-five paid admlssl6ns having
been reported by Secretary Yetzee. On
the following day the teams did not meet
at nil, trouble having arisen between
owners and players over money mat
ters. The latter announced that they
would play no ball until back salary
and expense money be paid them. Prom
ises wero made by the magnates to
make nmends, but the money was not
forthcoming at the agreed time, and one
by one the players straggled out of
J.UUH U(C1 OIUCK.
About a week ago Mr. Mockabee took I
over the controlling stock In the local j
team, and with a practically new team
endeavored to pursue the schedule orig- I
Inally planned for the Bandits. He out-!
fitted his team entirely new, and but
one game nas Deen played, that being
between Cincinnati and the Bandits on
Sunday at the northeast park.
The break has been expected for some
time. The outlaws have found their lot
a hard one, and several of the pro
moters who expected to make a mint of
money right from the start are ready
to throw up their hands. The league
Is In a bad way In the East, Its only
strength being In Richmond, but the
attendance there has fallen off In tho
TECH 11 FIRST
Initial Contest for Scholas-t
tic Title of the
Georgetown Preparatory School and
Technical High School will play tho
first game of their championship series
tomorrow afternoon on the Hilltop field
at 3 o'clock, and a great exhibition of
the national pastime should be the re
sult, as both nines are going at top
speed and both arc anxious to capture
the District title.
If confidence counts for anything, the
Blue and Gray youngsters should b
able to win premier honors In straight
games, for since their victory over Cen
tral last Saturday they express no doubt
as to their ability to take the Black
smiths Into enmp in both games. Their
record of two victories over Western
High School and an even break wjtli
Central, both of which nines Tech Just
managed to defeat, seems to be more
or less of a firm foundation for the
confidence of the embryo collegians.

from running wild on the bases. The
