Texas' Sporting Gossi
By D. W. Hornaday
Tcians fa the His Lchrticn.
The Texas pitchers in the bi league
continue to make an exceptionally bril
liant showing. Kargrer, -with Boston,
is nearly the league leader, only three
men doing better -work. He may De
called a seasoned player.
Of the new men. Mitchell, of Cleve
land, Blanding, of Cleveland, and
Mitchell, of St Louis, are doing the
best -work. Mitchell, who is with the
Naps, went up from San Antonio sev
eral months ago. He has ceased to be
a possibility and had become one of the
regular pitchers. Blanding has also
done very fine pitching. He has won
about two-thirds of the games pitched.
According to the official drafts he goes
to Columbus, Ohio, although he has
been playing with Cleveland. It is
generally considered the Columbus
draft is merely a bluff to cover
him for Cleveland, the Columbus
club really belonging to Cleveland.
Mitchell of St. Louis has been in the
harness regularly and has won more
Houston, has been tried out more fre
quently and while he has done good
work has had the misfortune to lose al
most every game he has twirled. Texas
Bill Bailey has been in bad shape all
the season and his work has Teen de
cidedly off color.
Drucke In National League.
In the National league, Drucke, the
former Lallasite, is the only pitcher
now regularly playing. He- has taken
his turn in the box during the entire
season and has won a few more games
than he has lost. He is now considered
a veteran and in three years it is pre
dicted he will be as great a pitcher as
the mighty Mathewson, of which there
is none greater.
Crlss, also a Texan, with St. Liouis,
has pitched but two games this season.
He won one and lost one. There Is lit
tle indications he will be considered a
pitcher, but may be carried again next
year as a' pinch hitter and a utility
man. Griggs, formerly of San Antonio,

St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 11. Easy money
autos for star batsmen in the big
leagues are jiow a thing of the past
The squabble which has resulted from
the race of Ty Cobb and Lajole for the
automobile offered for the batter mak
ing the most hits in the American
league, has caused president Ban John
son, of the American league; Garry
Hermann, of the National commission,
and other baseball authorities to an
nounce that never again would there
be any prizes hung up for the best
batters In any league.
The squabble is a result of charges
made by St. Louis sporting writers
that Lajcie was allowed to make eight
hits in the Sunday game by the St.
Louis Browns In order that he might
beat Cobb out of the auto.
Sporting writers here charge that
the local team of the Ameri
can league allowed Lajoie, of the
Cleveland team to obtain hits. The
object of this, it is claimed, was to
enable him to score more hits during
the season than were credited to Cobb
It was necessary for Lajoie to obtain
eight hits in order to pass Ccbb. Hor
went to bat four times in each game
and obtained as many hits. The first
time he hit a long liner to center field
that netted him three bases. Six other
times he bunted down the third baso
line and either beat third baseman
Corridon's throw to first or else Cor
ridon did not throw.
Another time Lajoie grounded to
Wallace, who threw wild to first base.
Once Lajoie bunted to Corridon, who
fielded it, but tossed wide to first. La
joie was credited with a sacrifice hit
Johnson IJnrK Autos.
Chicago, 111.. Oct. 11. President B.
B. Johnson, of the American league,
has announced that no more prizes
will be offered or permitted while he
continues at the head of that baseball
President Johnson stated that he had
taken this position as a result of thp
Lajoie incident He also said that h
was making an investigation of the
allegations made unofficially by St
Louis sporting -writers.
Hermann Says "erer Again."
Cincinnati, O., Oct 11. August Her
mann, chairman of the National base
ball commission, in discussing the La
joie incident, said:
"Lojoie and Cobb, according to un
official averages, have the race of the
leading batsmen in both leagues be
tween them. Which will win I do not
know, and the National commission
cannot decide until it receives the of
ficial averages of both leagues. I -want
to saj' one thing, however, since the
question came up as to the genuine
ness of the hits made by Lajoie at St.
Louis, and that is that no more prizes
or bonuses will be permitted, under
the rules of the National commission.
We shall be very careful to eliminato
anything of the kind in the future."
Lajolo Xot Talking.
"I have nothing whatever to say,"
was the way Napoleon Lajoie answered
a request for an interview here, re
garding the manner in which he -made
eight hits in one day. at St. Louis yes
terday. Before he was "through, how
ever, he said that he not only secured
eight hits in absolutely genuine man
ner, but that he really deserved nine
hits. When asked to explain this last
statement, he answered: "That's all I
have to say on the subject."

IN THREE ROUND BOUT
Kansas City, Oct. 11. In the first
fight since Ad Wolgast stripped him
of his championship laurels, Battling
Nelson here last night won from
Monte Dale, of Denver, after three
rounds of fighting.
At the beginning of the fourth round
Dale's seconds threw up the sponge
in order to save their man from a
knockout. Dale broke his left arm in
the second round of the fight and it
was for this reason, his seconds say,
that they stopped the fight. Nelson
was clearly the master of his oppon
ent First Round Decided Bout.
Before the first round had gone a
minute it was obvious that the "bat
tler" had the grounds for his claim
that he could "come back." The
Hegeswich fighter rushed into Dal
after feeling him out for a few sec
onds. With a. stiff left to the eye.
Nelson drew first blood. In a few sec
onds a left to Dale's stomach floored
him for four seconds. Many specta
tors thought Nelson could have won
by a knockout in this round had ha
desired. There was not a moment dur
ing the fight when Nelson appeared
tired. He was light on his feet and
hit from all angles with great force.
Dale weighed in at 133 pounds, but
Nelson did not weigh in. It was said
he weighed about 138.
