Kernan Stars With Stick Driving
In Both of Virginia's Runs
With Two Bagger.
DAHLGREN AND WRIGHT
PITCH GREAT BALL
Cunningham, Candidate for Big
League, Heaves for Duluth
But Is Very Wild.
(By Sandy Macdonald.)
In a 10-inning argument that drag
ged through two hours of play, Duluth
and Virginia tied up with two scores
each bexore a large week day crowd
yesterday afternoon at Oliver park.
The game was called after one extra
inning had been played. When Umps
Landry announced, just, before the
curtain went up, that George Cun
ningham would heave for the visitors
and Cyrus Dahlgren for the Diggers,
the crowd applaued long and loud.
The greatest pitching battle of the
season was in prospect and the fans
were all excitement. But cold water
was thrown on the quarrel in several
instances which greatly dampened the
It is usually poor sportsmanship to
jump the umpire for decisions which
he renders but Jack Landry, who held
the indicator in yesterday's battle did
not make a hit with the crowd. Sev
eral of his decisions were stoutly ques
tioned by the home players and one in
particular, when Couture trapped a
runner at first on a throw from Dahl
gren, Couture seemed to have his man
by a clean foot. This would have
made the third out. After that Du
luth scored its only two runs of the
contest. Of course Landry was closer
to the play than the fans and conse
quently better able to judge but the
decision looked bad to the crowd and
they told him so very pointedly.
Cunningham, the prize flinger of the
White Sox who was going to do ter
rible things to Virginia and who is
booked for a berth in one of the big
league clubs this fall, did not show
upper class calibre. He was wild as
a colt in fly time and could not locate
the plate with a compass. He walked
eight men, hit one and allowed five
hits, making a total of 14 bases. The
boy has plenty of steam and is strong
as a house but he is a long way from
being anything like a finished pitcher.
Cyrus Dahlgren, who started the
game for Virginia and who was re
lieved in the last of the fourth frame
to permit Farrell to hit for him when
there was one man on, did exception
ally well and the fans disliked to see
him retire. He was going great and
showed much of the old time form
that was his chief recommendation
for a position with the Cincinnati
Reds. Wright who succeeded Dahl
gren, was strong and steady all the
way, holding the White Sox runless
and with two little singles for six
Kernan Uses Gad.
Kernan starred in the sticking de
partment, getting two blows out of
two times up, one a double, driving in
Virginians two runs. The other three
times at. the plate he secured passes.
Duluth was first to score, register
ing two marks in the third inning.
After Cunningham was down, Brac
kett reached first on an error by
Campbell and stole second. Croake
fanned. Bond drew a walk. While he
was on first Couture nipped him off
the bag but Umpire Landry called
him safe. Then Collins singled, scor
ing Brackett. Ford got a one station
blow and Bond scored. O'Brien was
an infield out.
Virginia tied matters up in the last
of the sixth when Campbell walked
and Greisch reached first on an error
by Cunningham. Couture was an in
field out. Agnew fanned. Farrell
was sent in to hit for Dahlgren and
drew a pass. Kernan clouted the ball
against the left field boards for two
stations, scoring Campbell and Gre-

Professor Wrench's Government Own
ership of Baseball Prediction
Amuses Secretary Heydler.
NEW YORK, July 30—Secretary
John H-ydler of the National league
had a gcod laugh todav. It came when
he v.ras shown a dispatch stating that
Prof. Jecse E. Wrench, teacher of his
tory at the University of Missouri,
pie cted that the government would
own the baseball leagues in the United
States in the next twenty-five years.
"That's all a dream," said Heydler.
"Before we talk about government
ownership of our baseball and other
sports it might be just as well to wait
and see what success the government
has with ownership of railroads and
a few other things. I understand
the weather down in Missouri was
frightfully hot the last week or so.
And besides the silly season is now at
its height, so we are liable to hear all
kinds of foolish talk these days."
HALPIN TO MANAGE
THE OLYMPIC TEAM
NEW YORK, July 30.—In prepara
tion for the Olympic games in Berlin,
in July, 1916, the executive committee
of the American Olympic committee
met last night at the New York Ath
letic club and the first action taken
was the unanimous election of Mat
thew P. Hal pin of the local club as
manager of the American athletic
team team for the fourth time.
James E. Sullivan, one of the Ameri
can representatives who attended the
international meetings at Paris and
Lyons, France, said the Germans ac
cepted more suggestions and seemed
more desirous of procuring informa
tion from the delegates at these ses
sions than had been expected. He said
they were good sports and endeavor
ed to do their utmost to make the Ber
lin meet a success.
He stated also that in all the Olym
pic rifle contests the competition
would be obliged to use the German
army rifle and the ranges would be
open for the use of the visiting marks
men at least ten days prior to the
beginning of the shooting events.

ST. PAUL, July 30.—History is re
peating itself in the American asso

ing teams in the race are concerned.
Last year at this time Milwaukee was
leading in the race with a lead of four
games over Louisville. Right now
these two clubs are fighting for lea
dership, scarcely half a game apart.
Minneapolis, now in seventh place,
was third at this time in 1913, half
a game behind Louisville, Columbus
was fourth, Kansas City fifth, St. Paul
sixth and Toledo and Indianapolis
brought up the rear. Columbus, Min
neapolis and St. Paul have been the
chief disappointments, and Cleveland
and Indianapolis have shown the most
It is in the big leagues that great
differences are seen. Last year at this
time New York in the National and
Philadelphia in the American leagues
were more than ten games ahead of
their percentages yesterday. In both
big circuits the race was settled be
yond any doubt. The same teams look
as though they will repeat, but their
margin of leadership is nothing like
as great as it was a year ago.
In the _National league St. Louis,
now third, was a bad last at this time
twelve months ago, and Brooklyn, now
in eighth place, was then fifth, right
on the heels of the Pirates, who were
Last year, Cleveland, now in last
place, was second, and continued in
that position until within a month of
the close of the season. Chance's
Highlanders are one notch higher than
they were a year ago and have a con
siderable better percentage.
In the Northern league Winona was
leading a year ago. Now Duluth is on
top after making a spectacular climb
from very last place.

NEW YORK, July 30—Reports that

Europe again next winter have led to
several requests that the teams visit

that baseball is really gaining a fol

the subject a well known American

evidence that cricket i.® loosing some of

lives in houses surrounding these
