The amateur ball tosers expect to get
down to business today after yester
day's start and managers say their
'teams will again be ready to hold forth
Ion the various diamonds. The long
period of rest occasioned by the rain,
and the return of the National from
the West, has called off many of the
contests which will be sandwiched In
as postponed games later In the season.
Yesterday there were two postponed
games. The Marquette League teams
failed to have a full quota of players
and the Government League was forced
to call a forfeit on account of the fact
that War did not have a team to meet
interior. Promise 1b given today that
he leagues will stage all their scheduled
(Contests this afternoon.
One of the leagues, the Columbia,
tried to play off a postponed game yes
terday between Southern and American
Eecurlty, but was unable to get the
teams out. The game was announced Jn
jthe early morning, but was called off
it noon. Some of the teams did not
have notice of the games and were at
jlosa to know what to do.
Cornell Company and Sewerage Pump
on are to battle it out today at
the Capital City League grounds and
while neither team has had much prac
tice, a good game is looked for. These
teams are the strength of the circuit
and have many backers. The league
started up again yesterday with Rrent
Fwood and Navy Yard and drew a fair
crowd. It Is expected that the troubles
are all over and the circuit will again
continue in operation.
8ome of the amateur teams seem to
he pulling away from the Idea of a
parade and celebration on amateur day
and It is generally regretted by those
who have the Interest at heart. In
stead of getting behind the movement,
and giving the amateur commission all
kinds of support, a few of the peevish
ones seem to be trying to get back at
the commission by trying to spread dis
sension in the ranks.
Park defeated Andrews yesterday In
a one-sided game, the score going at 13
to 8. Many errors and hits marked the
contest Park was able to hit Walters
for seventeen safeties, but fell down on
C chances. .
Andrews players made seven errors
all told which had much to do with the
scoring Miller, of the winners, was the
leader at the bat with four hits, one of
which was a homer.

hits were made by the Anacostla play

Navy Yard managed to get six runs
in the sixth inning yesterday, and
checked the winning aspirations of the
Brentwood team In its first start in the
league. Tho score waa8 to 5.
It looked for all like a Brentwood
victory up to the sixth, when the Navy
Yard sluggers got to Loomls for the
six runs, which broke up the game.
The game was the first played in the
circuit since May 27.
Fans are today saying that yester
day's game between G. P. O and In
terior, which went to the Printing orflce
by a 2 to 1 score, was the best ever.
G. P. O. presented a strengthened team
and the fruits of the additions made
showed In team playing.
Each team had an error chalked up
against It and both pitchers kept the
scores down by crafty work. G. P. O.
had a shade on Interior and managed
to get a much needed victory.

First Presbyterian had won yester
day's game, but Souder got Into an
argument with Crnplre Woodward and

other player to make up'the nine First

at 13 to 4 in favor of FirBt.
The Presbyterian team was practi
cally given the game as there was little
chance of getting ahead In the last
round. The unfortunate loss of the
game may cause a protest.

was too much for the Station team. He

As the fortunes of wa would have It, the Senators
found themselves with a total of seventeen straight
wins and then a stand against the Athletics. But
record or no record, Griff and his people can absorb
credit for the greatest event In the run of baseball his
tory. For a ball club bereft of pennant tradition to rise
from the rut into a whirl of seventeen consecutive vic
tories completes our idea of the Ultimate Achievement
In sport. And the sudden turn of a heart-breaking do
feat doesn't lessen this credit. Business of doffing
sombreros to the gamest dash of balldom history that
no other ever made.
The Rube and 15 Straight.
Between the Chicago convention and the argument
built around Marquard's fifteenth straight win we can
clearly hear the call of far countries and alien lands
Inviting us to come and pay a friendly visit for a year
The issue is this: Crandall relieved Marquard against
the Cubs, with the score 3-2 in favor of the Giants after
Marquard had pitched eight Innings, Crandall pitching
Marquard relieved Ames against Boston, with the
score a tie in the eighth, and the Rube worked two
rounds, the ninth and tenth. Technically he gets credit
for both games. As to what sportively Inclined dent
this might make in compiling a world's record is left
to the fan delegates-at-large, contested and uncontested.

Hofman Sent Home;

PITTSBURGH, June 21. Artie Hof
man, who was secured from the Cubs
through a trade, has been ordered to
his home In Akron, Ohio, for rest,
Clarke and Hofman had a long talk last
night after the game. Since Hofman's
recent collapse In New York, his condi
tion has been such that he was border-;
ing on a complete nervoiiB breakdown.
Clarke decided the best thing to do
was to send Hofman home. Motman is
under weight and lull of malaria, ac
cording to his own statement. Those in
a position to know state that Hofman's
ailment is more than malaria.

Tipping It Off.
After a great Western trip J. Stahl and cast are
headed for homo with the ultimate Idea of curbing
Mack's team at the next clash or breaking a leg.
The Red Sox know what it means to see those whirl
ing Mackmen out in front, and the full force of BoBton
artillery will be fired point blank at the next McGulll
cuddian charge. The Red Sox are confident they can
turn the trick with Wood, Hall, Bedient and O'Brien at
top speed. Not attempting any forecost, SOME scrap
when these two clubs meet next is entirely apropos and
Sad as the wind through the cedars at dusk
Drear as the masterpiece Chopin arranged;
Sadder than memories lifted from musk
Aye, even sadder than lovers estranged:
Where, with a sudden Intaking of breath.
Brave dreams arise and the moment is tense
Far rings the monody, reeking with Death,
"Baker Hits Over the Fence."
Marquard first heard it and still in his dream
Richard can see bludgeon crashing with ball:
Mathewson followed and over his gleam
Gathers the shadowing drift of the pall;
Loud the acclaim and the echoing blare
One bloke to die and the end of suspense
ZING and the blur of a streak through the air
