Lost Per cent
Tim's" Trailers came down the pike
yesterday afternoon and struck a snag
near Washington village named Frank
Killen. They dallied with the obstacle
for a few agonizing minutes and then
save up in disgust.
The ex-Pittsburg twirler was positively
invincible as long as he wanted to be,
and, up to the seventh inning, he gave
the visiting "con" artists but four hits.
Then, seeing that lie had his game won
handily, he let up and permitted the
howlers from St. Louis to make a few,
so hat 4hey would have some little heart
to .last them over the night to play on
the morrow. He pitched a pretty game,
and came in for many rounds of applause.
A rank decision on balls and strikes by
O'Day caused a pass to first to be regis
tered against the ex-Pirate
The Senators, on the other hand, found
Hughey the easiest kind of a proposition
ana straightened out his curves and J
elants for fifteen hits, with a total of
eighteen bases. "Pepper' RIetz found
tne youngster for three singles, leading
in suck work for the home team, and
posting a clean sheet in the field.
Harley made a good catch of Killen's
leul fly in the second inning, grabbing the
nice aoout an inch and -three-quarters
from the top of the rail in front of the
Jeff field bleachers..
Lave Cross made a sensational stop of
Farrell's high bounder in the seventh in
ning and threw the Duke out at first,
for which he received a generous portion
of the pleased palm.
When "Poghorn Tommy" Tucker
stepped up to the bat in the third, he re
ceived a pleasing reception from the
"fans." who remembered his good work
here last season.
The Right Hon. Timothy Hurst, re
crriendent in a cpitommesuggestive
gtraw hat of the vintage of 2001 B. C.
sought to adorn the beich on the left
sNle of the plate. One of the factors in
his keeping cool was his propinquity to a
bunch of ice water, kept in a ' barrel
pninteti yellow whether out of compli
ment to the article of baseball put up
ly his learn, however, could not he
learned. Somehow or other "Tim"
seemed to be sad.

HOLMES THE SCAPEGOAT.
"VliltevnHhinjr of Freeelman by the
League Bonn! oE.Diiectors.
The League magnates at their meeting
at Philadelphia on Monday did just what
The Times intimated they would do. They
abrogated and annulled a plain provision
of their constitution, which is manilatory
in its character. In their deliberations
they considered matters over which they
had no jurisdiction, for the reason that
another special tribunal has been estab
lished for that purpose. The conviction
of Holmes for an alleged offense upon ex
parte testimony, and without affording
him full and ample opportunity to-be
heard, is illegal and void and a travesty
upon justice, calculated to bring into
odium and disrepute one of the cardinal
principals of free government the right
of trial by the jury.
In their zeal to placate Freedman they
went out of their way and handicapped
their own findings by providing a condi
tion precedent to its enforcement, affect
ing the rights of others not parties to the
investigation, either personally or by at
torney, a findings which would be re
versed in any court of equity In the
The enforcement of a judgment depend
ing upon a condition precedent Is farcical
and absurd, and not complimentary to the
men who seek its promulgation.
The board of directors have shown by
their action that they desire to shield
Freedman from the consequence of his
folly and to placate the public, whose
.indignation has been' so prominently
manifested. Therefore they visit their
wrath upon poor, unfortunate Holmes,
who was not even cited to appear before
the tribunal for answer, and whose of
fense, if an offense, has 'been establish
ed, should have been punished by the
umpire, who had exclusive jurisdiction.
These gentlemen have made a sorry
mess of the affair, and stand before the
country in an unenviable light. They
have given to baseball a set-back that
will be felt for some time to come. It is
therefore, inconsistent for them to expect
ball players and other subordinates to re
spect laws for which "they themselves
manifest such seemly disregard..

hy should Hanlcyaj. suspend Holmes?
Umpire Lynch .has: filed no charges
against Holmes, nor has the secretary
c ted him to appear before the board of
discipline. Without The slightest formal
ity of a trial, upon x parte testimony,
the board assumes that Holmes is guilty
of some offense, npt, mentioned, and di
rects Hanlon to punish him, and says:
'Unless you do so-; -we'll punish you."
Is it to bo supposed1 that Ed Hanloh will
tamely submit to this outrage upon his
rights and manhood? If he should, he
deserves the contempt of all his friends.
Does anyone think that Holmes is ignor
ant of his rights? It 'is patent to all who
can distinguish between right and wrong
that any civil court fif the country would
decide against such jx ruling, which de
prives Holmes of the benefit of a contract
that guarantees him pay for a seasdn's
work, subject to exceptions which have
not as yet been urged.
These gentlemen, who seem to be so
afraid of Andy Freedman, and presume
upon Ed Hanlon's good nature, have
placed themselves In a position from
which there is no escape, except defeat In
the courts or an abject back-down.

of the work of a "vigilance committee."

complete, and his fl.000 is perfectly rate.

One of the questions that naturally
came up at the training etuarters was
whether the tragedy would result in any
postponement of-Corbett's fight with Mc
Coy. Corbett said this afternoon:
"If McCoy will not postpone the contest
I will give up my forfeit. I am only In
this business to provide money for those
who are dependent upon me. No man
ever had a better father or mother."
Later In the day Corbett received a tel
egram from his brother Harry, saying
that the bodies of his parents would be
laid in a vault pending his arrival. He
then decided that he would go on.
Trunks were hastily packed and prepar
ations were made for the departure to
San Francisco. His wife will accompany
Corbett Arrlvcn lit Gotham.
New York, Aug. 16. Corbett arrived in
town tonight from Asbury Park. Ho was
ery much unnerved and wept continually
on the trip to the city. George Consldine,
his manager, says he will ask for a post
ponement of the fight to any day be-
I tween September 25 and October L He Is
trying to dissuade Corbett from going on
to Frisco, but the pugilist insists on go
ing. M'COY IS WILLING.
ConsentM (o a l'OMtponement for a
ItenHonnlilc Length of Time.
Saratoga, Aug. 16. The news of the
tragic death of Jim Corbett's father and
mother in 3Un Francisco greatly shocked
"Kid" McCoy, who Is training to meet
Corbett. He immediately sent a telegram
to CorBett, as follows:
"You have my most heartfult sympa
thy in your hour of bereavement- The
news of the sad death of your mother
and father was a severe shock to me."
McCoy said: "The death of Corbett's
folks may be the means of breaking up
our match. "Under the circumstances, I
am willing to forego our original articles
of agreement to the extent of giving him
a reasonable length of time in which to
properly (It himself."

Hawthorne Club OilleinlM Await
"Word From Corbett.
Buffalo, N. Y., Aug. 16. Officials of the
Hawthorne Club are awaiting for Cor
bett's decision before announcing what
will be done with the light scheduled for
September 10. Everything depends on
Corbett If he will stay in training the
contest will take place here, they say,
on the date named in the agreement.
Secretary Charles M. Wilson said to
night: "If Jim should go to Frisco, it will
interfere with his training, and probably
his baqkers would not let him fight on
September 10. But If he wants a short
postponement we will be willing to grant
it and 1 am sure McCoy cannot object.
Anyway we will go ahead and build the
clubhouse, and if the contest does not
come off on account of this tragedy we
will have some other big match." My
own opinion is that the contest will take
place on the date fixed or very shortly
The committee of clergymen, headed by
Bishop Quigley, called on District Attor
ney Kenefick and Sheriff Kilgallon today
and thanked them for their declarations
that they would stop the fight.

any purse satisfactory to McCoy.

Bristol, R. I., Aug. 1. (Special.) At the
works of tno Herreshoff Company it was
stated officially that the new America's
cup defender will be built there. It was
also learned that the design will be one
upon which Captain "Nat" Herreshoff
and C. Oliver Iselin have already agreed.
President John B. 'Herreshoff, the blind
boat builder, will take an active interest
in the work of construction, and he sent
for today and conferred with some of the
most skilled metal workers in the employ
of the company.
It is estimated that the cost of the new
.defender, built of metal, will be in the
neighborhood of $GO,000, and the contract
will provide that she shall be afloat in the
Herreshoff dock in sufficient time to race
In due time the Defender Is to be sailed
to this harbor and put in trim for racing
in the trials of tho new yacht. Some of
her plates require replacing, and a quan-tity-of
the bolts are-to be removed. This
is duo to corrosion,, the result of the De
fender's long vacation at her anchorage
in the- waters about New York.
In an interview Capt. "Nat" Herreshoff
"The challengers have not yet defined
the character of their boat. We must
await that and the formal challenge, and
some other information. There is no fear
but" "we can 'hulraoT winner, still tho
Americans thistipjewill have a remark
ably well-equipped "challenger to contest
aairst..For months past Mr. Iselin and
others have kepfclose watch of foreign
5'achts and yachtsmen, and we will not
be caught napping."

finish had a lead of eight minutes and
The- course was similar to Saturday's,
a two-mile beat to windward and return
sailed three -times, making a course of
twelve miles. There was a good reefing
breeze, with a fairly heavy sea.
The weather again favored the Cana

traordinary windward work, and on one
very windward leg fhe made remarkable
Mr. Crane admitted after today's race
that his boat had clearly no show against
the freak, but he said he would complete
Mr. Crane, in racing against the freak,
is doing so in opposition to the wishes of
the Seawanhaka-Corlnthian Club, which
sent word to its representative, Mr. Gib
son, to withdraw the boat from the races
on account of the decision of the St. Law
rence Yacht Club to sail the Dominion as
the defender, the Seawanhaka Club con
sidering the Canadians we're taking- un
fair advantage of Its representative by
sailing the freak.
Tomorrow's race, which will probably
be the final one, will be over a triangular
