Louisville, Ky., Aug. 27. With four
pitchers playing' in the field, two catchers
and a generally patched up team, the
broken down and unlucky Senators gave
the Colonels a big scare this afternoon.
As It is made up at present, the Wash
ington team is reasonably the worst that
over represented a city in the National
League, but the Colonels were lucky to
defeat them after ten innings of play by
the score of 4 to 3.
It was far from a good game of ball,
though several nice neldmg plays were
made. Dexter's daring base running
practically saved the Colonels from de
feat, though Decker's batting and Killen s
wild throw helped to a considerable de
gree. Cllngmarr, also in the tenth In
ning, cut down a two-bagger and helped
make a double play which had much
to do with saving the day for Louisville.
McGee pitched another good game, "but
the players, as a rule, went through the
motions of playing in a listless manner,
as If they wished baseball had not been
The Colonels made one in the first.
Clark was hit by a pitched ball and scored
on infield hits by Boy and Dexter. AVag
ner and Ritchey also got on the bases,
Dexter being forced, but neither was
able to score.
In the fifth McGuire hit one at Cling
man, Billy threw at the stand. anS Mc
Guire went on to second. He went to
third on Donovan's long fly out to Hoy
and scored on Killen's two-bagger down
the left field foul line. Weyhing and Mer
cer flew out.
In the Colonels half they made two
scores. Hoy hit to left and Dexter beat
out a bunt. They tried for a double steal,
and Farrell threw the ball to centertield,
Hoy scoring and Dexter taking third.
Decker followed with a safe drive to cen
ter, scoring Dexter. Decker stole second
and went to third on Ritchey's fly-out to
AVeyhing, but was thrown out at the
The Senators resumed business in the
ninth inning. After Farrell had gone
out, McGuire singled to right. Donovan
followed with a home run, the ball strik
ing the center field fence near the club
house. This tied the score. Killen went
out from Clingman to Decker. Anderson
was put into bat for AVeyhing. He singled
past AVagner, but Mercer struck out.
The Colonels could do nothing in their
half. A great stop of a double by Cling
man spoiled AVashington's chances In the
tenth. In the last half Dexter was hit by
a pitched ball. AVagner hit one at Kil
len, who threw badly to first, and Dexter
took third. Decker singled and Dexter
came in with the winning run. The score-

The poor showing of the Brooklyns this
season has not only disappointed thou
sands of local baseball enthusiasts, but
has also aroused many of the big league
magnates, who have all along appreciated
tho fact that a winner at AVashlngton
Park means increased receipts for all the
clubs. As the Brooklyn club has never
been a money-maker since the old days of
tho American Association, when tho team
won the championship, it is taken for
granted that patrons of the club want a
AVhile various stories have been afloat
this year regarding the disposition of the
Cleveland club, this is the first time the
plan of several influential league men to
locate Tebeau and his men in Brooklyn
has been made public. Frank De Hass
Robinson has decided to take his fino
ball team out of Cleveland at the end of
the present schedule". Reports have been
in circulation that he would either go to
St. Louis or Buffalo with Indianapolis as
a successor to Cleveland If the Mound
City should be chosen.
Now comes a scheme to put Tebeau's
men in Brooklyn, Albert L. Johnson, who
was tho principal backer and organizer
of the Players' League, assisted Abell
and Ebbltts to build AVashlngton Park
this year. Robinson is one of Johnson's
most intimate friends. This fact is re
garded as most fortunate by the mag
nates who want to see things boom In
Robinson wants an Inducement to come
to Brooklyn. Johnson, the man with
money, who wants to see a winner at
AA'ashlngton Park, may be the means of
fixing up the deal. Two of the latter, In
talking over the plan, said recently:
"Robinson would jump at a chance to
put his Cleveland team Into Brooklyn,
but, of course, he would not care to get
the rhort end of the stock. AVe would like
to see Robinson, Johnson, and a new club
to be organized In Brooklyn, and we be
lieve that It would be a success from the
"In case Johnson should look upon the
-scheme favorable he might be the one to
pay a cash bonus to 'Robinson to bring
the team to AVahington Park. Abell
could toe asked -to. split up the stock in
a new club that .would be calculated to
make a barrel of money.
"A team calculated to come near win
ning the championship could be placet! in
the field." t -
AL SELBAC& TALKS.
DelincN AVhnt He HeJleiON to Be the
Duty of a I'luycn to III Cluli.
Al Selbach, who-Us now on the hospital
list, has ample time "at his disposal to
talk baseball, and as' It is a theme in
which he delights, he is always an inter
esting subject for the interviewer. Speak
ing to a Times representative, he said:
"I first acnuired a fondness for ball
playing around the lots about Columbus,
Ohio, where I spent all my idle time In
learning the fine points of the game. Of
course, the knowledge I received was of
the kindergarten kind, yet in a mechan
ical way It was of great benetfi to me in
after years. I was always devoted to the
game, and was never so happy as when I
was with a winning nine.
"The scrappiest games of ball I have
ever participated In were those played
upon the open lots, when a disputed play
generally ended in a fight that resulted
In bloody noses.
"I finally succeededin establishing a lo
cal reputation and was given a chance
upon a semi-professional club, where I
acquitted myself fairly well. I admit that
I was 'stuck' on myself and that the
baseball bee was buzzing In my bonnet,
and I imagined that I was fitted for a
more extended field of usefulness. My
chest expansion kept pace with my aspi
rations and my assumption of being the
real thing brought me Into public notice.
Finally Gus Schmelz, who was then man
aging the Chattanooga team of the South
ern League, and had been keeping a quiet
tab on my playing, came to me and offer
ed me a place on his team, which, it is
needless to say, I readily accepted. It
was the realization of my dream to get
into ithegame professionally, and the sal
ary of $io per month, which was dazzling
to a kid who had always played for fun
and glory, was a secondary considera
tion. "Schmelz had got together a fast
lot of youngsters, and under his careful
and painstaking management we soon
took a prominent place in the race There
were several members of that team who
made reputations as ball players in the
major league, notably Dan Daub, pitcher,
who has been doing good work for Brookl
lyn. Charley Abbey, who played three
seasons with AVashlngton, was another of
"While with Schmelz I played the
catcher's position and mj; work averaged
up with that of any catcher in the leagup
and I was touted by the fans and the
press as a phenom, which makes me
smile now as I look back to those happy
old days. I did, however, distinguish my
self upon a certain occasion and con
tributed towards winning the pennant for
our club. We were tied for first place
with Birmingham and were scheduled to
play a game with'that club on their own
grounds, which would'-decide the cham
pionship. AVhen itho' game was called
there was none ofl--our pitchers in condi
tion to play. Schmelztvas simply frantic
with rage and disappointment, with no
relief in sight. I finally went to him and
said: 'Let me pitch,5Gus; I can throw
these fellows down. I know I can.' Like
a drowning man catching at a straw,
Schmelz acceptedothe. situation and put
me in. I won imy 'game easy; they
couldn't hit me a little bit. Gus's smile
Tould have reached; from Atlanta to the
sea, as It gave hlscjubhe championship.
"When Schmelz7assumed the manage
ment of the AVashingtqrj club I was signed
as a backstop and,renorted with the team
here in the Springof i. I did not play
that position, however., but was put in
left field for the rcasop that no seasoned
left fielder had been secured. I have been
playing along in that garden ever since
with what success the public knows.
"My debut in the big league was
fraught with doubts and uncertainties as
to the consequences that might follow. I
had been told that the gauntlet that all
minor leaguers had to run. was very try
ing upon the nerves; that the old stagers
were merciless in the perpetration of
practical jokes and that many a victim
had gone to his berth on a Fell River
steamer upon a hot night Incased in an
armor of life saving cork and perspired
the night away in expectation of sudden
disaster, etc., etc. I therefore kept very
quiet and slept with one eye open and
was always distrustful of any marked
attention from my comrades. Of course
I did not entirely escape, and the laugh
was frequently upon me.

marked kindnets by. the owners, press
and public, and I have not a kick com

that I have tried to play the game to the
best of my ability, but there is nothing
that takes the life out of a ball player
who has the interest of his club at heart,
and who desires to gratify a personal am
bition, as a long string of defeats.
"I regret to say there are some ball
players who are entirely indifferent as
to tlie results of the games In which they
play. They seem never to be cast down
because of defeats. Such men are a detri
ment to a club. Their actions cast a re
proach upon the earnest, honest and con
scientious ball player, and they deserve
to be put out of the game.
"Yes, the club this season has been
sadly disappointing to us all. 1 have no
criticism to make. In my opinion, how
ever, what Ir. AVagner has needed and
what he now needs, is a competent man
ager, a man who thoroughly understands
the game, and is endowed with executive
ability one who, when he issues an or
der, has the nerve to enforce it, regard
less of whom it may affect.
"My experience has been that the man
who tries to do his duty and observes the
rules and regulations that have been es
tablished for the conduct of the game,
will have no trouble with owner or man
ager. I believe that if the owners, man
agers and players would get In closer
touch and cultivate a more fraternal feel

that would produce success, and all to
gether work for the accomplishment of
one common purpose, then we would in
"There has always seemed to be a gulf
between the magnates and players. The
magnates have an idea that ball players
are trying to throw them down, while the
players think they will get the worst of
everything, consequently there is uneasi
ness and dissatisfaction engendered in the
club, out of which grow dissensions that
destroy the harmony of the team.
"Finally, the responsibilities should be
evenly borne, as the honors and. successes
are fairly distributed. Incompetent and
unworthy players would find no place in
such an organization, as they would be
an incubus to the men on the team who
have a professional pride and ambition
to sustain, as well as to establish a repu
tation for honesty and fair dealing,
which, after all, is a prize of more value
than any Temple cup that could be de

New York, Aug. 27. A colored man,
Major Taylor, is now the cycling wonder.
He gained a title to that appellation to
day by thoroughly beating Jimmy Michael
in a race that established new records
for the world.
It was one of the fiercest and yet pret
tiest contests seen on the Manhattan
Beach track this season. The diminutive
AVel&hman was fairly beaten.
Taylor rode faster than the midget did
and shattered the Idol that has so long
been worshiped by the followers of cycle
Early in the afternoon it was an
nounced that a contract had been signed
for a one-hour race on September 5 be
tween Linton and Michael, with unlimited
pace qnd the men to start from opposite
sides of the track. The suspicious ones
thought they saw In this a foreshadowed
victory for Michael over the colored man,
and bet accordingly.
AA'hen the men started for the first mile
heat, both had a hard sprint to catch the
five-seated pacing machines, of which
each man had two. In the back stretch
the chain on Taylor's pacing machine
broke. No other was near to pick him up,
and Michael rode home a winner by 150
In che second heat the men srot away
together, traveling aibreast tfor two laps,
Taylor striving to forge to ithe front. In
the third lap he opened up a gap of fifty
yards which gradually widened to 100,
and tihen seeing that he was hopelessly
out of it, Michael sat up when be reach
ed th third turn.
In the third htat, Taylor went to the
front at 'the start and remained there,
crossing the .tape a quarter of a rap
ahead. The time made in tne heats are
below all previous-records.
In the 'third heat the world's record for
