MAI DREES,
Tales Told At
By W.
I
T IS'T a I way the boxing skill or
a battle. Sometimes the better fighter tarns his nnkle and sometimes cir
cumstances entirely unforeseen cut more ten than half a 1oi-rn winter
vryers. Mntt IJree. Tvhose very name is now forgotten "by the lovers of
the game, was an unforeseen circumstance and while he lasted he surely
upset the "dopc like a mastiff flicking his tall around in n drug store.
Mr. Drees broke Into the limelight In Chicago many 3 ears ago. One
night the Chicago A.thIetlc association, which was pulling off n tourney,
found the card shortened up because some kid who was to meet Harry
Griffin had failed to show. Griffin was a good lightweight, who in later
days, even defeated Johnny Thompson, and, at this time, was a "terror to
the younger stars. He could hit like mnIe kick, was game as a lion, and
loTed rough going. Hence, when it wag announced that Griffin's adversary
and defaulted, there was no wild eagerness to take the Job, and it looked
as If Mr. Griff la would go through the evening merely as a spectator.
A small boy who had slipped In with some fighter piped up: "I know
where dere's a light v. eight wot'JI fight Griffin," said he, "an yonse can
get im on de phone right away3. His name's Matt Drees: he's Just de size
up Grifrin. an' he'd fight an ellyphnnt fer $30."
And, taking a despcratechance, the matchmaker called up 3Ir. Drees,
got him ail right, and secured his promise to be there In half an hour.
When Matt Drees appeared beforc the matchmaker, the official threw
a fit and began to give tongue like a bloodhound, but there was no time to
choose. Griffin, having heard that his foe was on hand, was already In
the ring. Presently Mr. Drees appeared, ana then a whoop went up that
shook the building, while Mr. Griffin stood up, gasped, and bulged his
eyes. Matt Drees proved to be a man with red hair falling in wild locks
around his shoulders. A huge red mustache swept across his face. Ills
eyes were fierce and blazing. He dnnce,i np and down upon the padding,
and front the great mustache came low, lahuman growls of fury and antic
ipation. Griffin looked at this creature and his blood ran cold. The gons
rang, and Mr. Drees, with cries of benstlike frenzy, launched himself across
the ring. Mr. Griffin made one ineffectire pass at the monster, then
turned hJs back and ran for his life. Round and round the ring they went,
vrlth the red mustache growling .in pu rguit. At last Mr. Drees got close
enough to land a light swipe on the retreaOngback of Mr. Griffin and Mr.
Griffin immediately leaped the ropes, never stopping his flight until he hit
the dressing room.
NeTer again In ten years of fight I oc and 200 battles did Griffin quit
or show a trace of yellow, but that object-with the red mustache and scar
let mane got his goat before the gone pang. During the next month 3Ir.
Drees fought five men, and cveryone f them curled up, quit, or dogged
it till he had a chance to flee. Xot One of them was even bruised by the
demon he dldn t have to hit them. Then, one fatal night,- poor Drees,
complaining that it was hot -weather, shaved off the big mustache and
parted with the crimson mane. And the next time he fought his nntagon
1st, a second-rate pug, beheld a timid little man, with a weak Jaw and
apologetic features confronting him Instead of the devil he had banked on
meeting. The second-rater went straight at Drees, drove him round the
ring ana flattened hlra in tbxec rounds without the slightest trouble. Drees
never fought again, but the reputation he built up v with his mustache and
hair was a topic ot mirthful conversa tlon round the town for many and many
a day.

Millers Are the Champions' Of the
City League; Win EI Paso Pennant
Soldiers Outclassed in the
Last Game of the
Season of 1912
The Millers are the City league cham
pions of 1912. In the final game of the
season, played Sunday at Washington
park, they completely outplayed the
22d infantry team and decided the City
league title by a 5 to 2 score. For the
tntire nine Innings the teams played
ball that was the best seen in the city
this year and which was in a class far
surpassing that of amateur balL Both
teams were, in the game every minute,
playing sensational ball, pulling off
thrillers in the fielding, hitting and
base running line and the pitching
work; especially was that of Hill of the
highest order.
The Millers did fine work through
out the .ame, and" in ' winning
their title played- baseball that
deserved to win. As during the
other games of the season, thev
showed, a gameness and fighting spirit
which will win games for any team,
and when things were going against
them at times, they buckled Into it
with the result that they had the big
end of the score. Likewise, when they
started anything during the game, they
finished it, and when a man reached a
base, the batter following generally
sent him along.
uinr -will's wonderful pitching as
sisted the Millers in winning the decid
ing game of Sunday! Ten different
times he fanned men and he made the
batters bite the air at critical times and
generally with men on the bags. His
hits, too, were kept well scattered, and
only in one Inning did they play an im
portant part in the scoring. Hill's no
hit game of a week ago and his defeat
of the soldiers in the final -game which
decided the pennant Sunday has put
him in the leading class of the local
twirling artists.
Claiborne Adams, the foster father of
the Millers, was near the diamond Sun
day and at all times was encouraging
his. team to win.
. Soldiers Not Up to Kcfrm.
' The soldiers were not up to their
form in Sunday's game and neither at
bat nor in the field did they do the
things which they have done in other
critical games of the year. Their field
ing in many cases was mediocre and
the pitching department was poor.
Scamerhorn was hit" so hard and was
so wild that Lieut. Garber had to pull
him from the game in the sixth inning
and sent Kay in to replace him. Kay
pitched much better ball than Scamer
horn and possibly if he had pitched the
entire game the Millers- might have
been held down closer by the soldiers,
but it Is not belieTed that the soldiers
could have beaten them, because of the
form they were In for Sunday's game.
Besides the honor which goes with
the winning of the City league cham
pionship, there is a pennant fund
amounting to about $350, which will be
divided between 15 players and a final
banquet which had been promised to
the Millers earlier in the season if they
should win the pennant. Claiborne
Adams will be the host at the banquet
which will be given to the victorious.
Millers.
Millers Start Game Lively.
With the opening inning, the Millers
started off by kicking away ivso neat
li tie run3, -which gavi- them a nice
margin to play on during the game.

Darnell, who was taking Barker's place
in left field, flied out to Lamb, but Har
ley Kiefer, the Millers' captain, was hit
by Scamerhorn and sent to his ,base.
And by the way. Harley was in the
game for all of the nine innings and his
spirit helped the Millers greatly. Weiss,
because of soldiers pitchers wildncss,
was passed to f.rsi ann tnen he and
Kiefer enacted a successful double steal.
Hill was the second out, but H. Grady
singled and Kiefer came home for a
score on Grady's hit -with Weiss closely !
following him for the second run. Only j
one hit played a part in the -scoring. 1
Gurtz, the first soldier at the bat,
made a hit off Hill and was sacrificed
by Grady to second. He went to third
on a passed ball, but Hill came into
form tltiA farmprl Art&ms and Trpmn. thp
two remaining batters-to face him durT

. Hill but a--score-could not be -squeezed
in.
Millers Fall to Score.
W. Grady, the first Miller at the plate
in ' second, was given a walk, but
c -liough he stole second, his team
na o did not assist him and he died
at second. Fassett and Leyva both filed
out and Campbell, who took Coming's
place, fanned.
In the soldiers half of the inning.
Lamb and Yost both went out and, al
though Fisher got on a base by an er
ror, Erickson could not help him any
and the inning was over.
The 22d infantry band, which v,zx.
present, tried to bring the soldier play
ers back to life by playing and .the
crowd stretched, but it didn't seem to
"be in the soldiers on Sunday and their
efforts were"Useless.
In the first of the third Inning, the
Millers went out in one-wo-three or
der and the soldiers did likewise. Um
pire De AVigens was hit in the shoulder
b a pitched ball, and Grady's hot liner,
which H. 'Grady did away with, brought
back the old "pep" to the game in this
Inning. -
Plicher Proves a Hitter.
Hill, the great little pitcher of the
Millers, started the fourth inning off
with a two-bagger and H. Grady sent
him to third with a sacrifice. W. Grady
sacrificed Hill home for a score and
then beat out the ball to first, landing
at that section safely. Fassett and
Leyva both went out -with the Millers
one run to the good for the Inning.
The soldiir It, th!s Inniner rront tS
route as previously. Kemp, the first !
up, sent a not one. which Kiefer swal
lowed and had him out. Hill fanned
both Adams and Limb.
Off of Scamerhorn in the fifth, Camp-J
Den drew a quartet of Dalls, but was
declared out while stealing second. Dar
nell was hit by the pitcher, bat Erick
son, the center fielder of the soldiers,
by a wonderful catch, put Kiefer out
and the Inning ended with no hits and
no runs for the Millers.
Yost made a crack to deep center in
the soldiers' half of the inping. but
Leyva made one of the greatest catches
of the year when he pulled it down out
of the clouds after a long sprint. Erick
son was again in evidence, as he was
many times during the game, with a
screaming three bagger to right field.
There were no runs made by the sol
diers. '
Millers Mnkc Tvo More.
Two additional runs were made bv
the Millers in the sixth which resulted
in Scamerhorn being pulled and Kay
sent in to replace him. To begin with,

Billy Grady was safe, on an error and
on -Fassett's two bagger scored. Leyva
followed him with a clean single over
second and Fassett romped homeward
for the second score. Campbell was de
clared' safe at first and Darnell singled,
and. with the bases full, Lieut. Garber
sent Scamerhorn to the bench and put
Kay in his place. It was a critical po
sition for Kay, but even with the bases
full, he fanned the remaining Millers
who faced him.
Hill slowed up a little in the second
half of the sixth and gave Gurtz a base
on balls. Grady followed with a little
bmgle, but he slid into first and spiked
Kiefer. the. injury nearly causing him
to quit the game. Kiefer, however, stuck
it out. With the two men on the bags,
Hill closed down on the othpr hotter"!
-and no-1 runs -were made.
Soldier Make Near-Rally.
A near-rally was made by the sol
diers In their half of the eighth inning,
when- they scored two runs. Grady be
gan the inning with a single and
Kemp's fielder s choice put two on the
bases. Grady went to third but was
out- at the plate, but on a neatly exe
cuted, steal, Kemp came home for the
first score for the infantry. Lamb
landed a safe one down near second
and scored for the second run of the
game, when Yost singled. Campbell's
sensational catch of Fisher's flv over
second saved the soldiers from" doing
any mor&damage.
The ninth Inning went off with the
usual outs and nothing was pulled off
by either team.

"Wasn't 1 A Player Myself?"
Proudly Says the Elder Tesreau
"Big Jeff" of the New York Giants, After Pitching Team to Victory, Win
Dray Only S3000 Regular Salary Is $1800.
By CLARENCE F. LLOYD.
T. LOUIS. Ma. Oct. 7. James Tes
s
reau, father of "Jeff" Tesreau,
the pitcher who pulled the Giants
out of the fire and virtually won the
National league pennant when It
( seemed about to slip away, while in
r St. Louis, disclosed several facts not
1 generally known to the baseball
world.
While Tesreau has been pitching
the Giants to the National league
championship Jie has been, drawing
the njeasly sum of $1800 a season.
That's even less than half the amount
being pulled down by some players on
second division teams.
But Tesreau's work has been appre
ciated so much that he will receive a
bonus of $1280 extra for his great
services during the season, with the
promise of a present in the shape of
an automobile if he succeeds in win
ning the world's title from the Red
Sox.
This information was received by
Tesreau senior In a letter from his
son.
"Charley has already won the $3800,
which includes his salary and bonus
promised if he won the National
league pennant," said the elder Tes
reau, "and now he -will try to -win
the automobile and also the -world's
series title for the Giants.
"Why shouldn't Charley be a base
ball player? Wasn't I a player my
self? Even after my oldest son had
become 20 years 'of age, I used to get
out with the youngsters and hurl 'em
over. Yes, I was a pitcher, too, so
I guess Charley inherited the art of
twirling.
"Yes, I'd like to go on east to see
my boy Charley pitch for the Giants.
but I can't take the time. But he's
a great player now and I guess he
can get along without me."

not as broad as his famous son. He
is on his way to Washington state,
where he expects to purchase a new
farm, inasmuch as "Jeff," or Charles,

Rest for the weary is what the New
York and Boston clubs are enjoying
as the curtain is ready to ascend lor
the championship games. The re
cruits have been given a tryout in the
final games of the schedule and all
of the players, especially the pitch
ers, have been given- a chance to rest
and get in condition tor the final
games. Relaxation is what these high
strung Individuals need and Messrs.
Stahl and McGraw are not overlook
ing this one best bet for they are giv
ing the players all of the rest they
wish. Charles Murphy to the con
trary, the players are being allowed
to gamble, drink beer and do any
thing else they wish. This is on the
theory that the relaxation win do
them more good than the suds will
do harm and the players are able to
forget the contest they are np
against.
