first game was a long one, and the De
troit club was obliged to leave on an
early train for St. Ijuis to be on time
for a double header with the Browns
on the following day. In consequence
a time limit was fixed on the second
game by agreement.
As soon as Detroit acquired a win
ning lead in the second inning Lajoie
and his men began playing for time to
prevent finishing five innings, which
would make it impossible ever to play
off the game. Despite all delavs a
legal game was completed, but the
Xaps nearly caused a riot by their dil
atory tactics. Immediate protest was
made by the Detroit club on the ground
that the affair was an injury to base
ball in general and to the Detroit club
in particular on account of its effect
on the patrons.

BATTLE IS STILL
ON IN WISCONSIN
Wausau and La Crosse to Give Free
port Hard Fight for Pennant.
Freeport, 111., Sept. 20 The fight be
twecn Freeport, Wausau and La Crosse
for the pennant in the Wisconsin
league is assuming sensational angles
since the riot of last Monday at Free
port, when the visiting players were
mobbed. Excitement over the incident
has not subsided. Charges to the ef
feet that President Fred Rodemeyer of
the local club had attacked and knock
ed down Bond of La Crosse are em
phatically denied, the local magnate
having in no manner participated in
the melee, it is said, but a libel suit is
on just the same.
Manager Hawley of La Crosse has
thrown down the gauntlet to the Free
porters and is confident of his ability
to capture the flag. "If Freeport wants
the honor this season, its club will
have to play for it," says Hawley.

IDIOSYNCRASIES IN THE STAFF
OF AMERICAN LEAGUE UMPIRES
Jack Sheridan, the veteran of the
American league umpires, is in a clans
by himself. He uses neither indicator
nor chest protector, yet he never stops
a ball with his manly bosom and never
loses count of the number of balls
There are a lot of things about a
ball game that the casual observ-r
seldom notes. The conduct of the un:
jiire is oiu? of them. The arbitrators
are considered a part of the baseball
machinery, until they disjilease the
Kipulace, and then they are anything
from a horse thief up.
Every man working as a judge of
play in the American league has some
marked peculiarity. The method ct
calling balls and strikes is quite dif
ferent. Jack Sheridan yowls "sts-r-r-rk" in
a bulldog tone, lifting his right han1
to indicate that the ball was over the
plate. What he says for "ball" his
never been interpreted, nobody els?
speaking Jack's language. His. term
for "ball" is an unintelligent growl.
yet It is so different from the "strike"
that the fans have no trouble knowing
his decision. Sheridan crouches b.v
hind the catcher tis the pitcher de
livers the ball.
"Silk" O'Langhlin, the near alder
man, is also in a class by himrelf.
"Silk" yells "stri-l-ik," with particu
lar emphasis on the "i" and draws hie
right hand back over his shoulder an 1
points his. thumb at the grand stand.
When he calls a ball he makes n i
movement with his hands. "Silk"
calls two "tuh," which never fails t.i
raise a laugh.
"Tubby" Tim Hurst appears on the
hall lot in his street clothes, the ony
change being a shift' from the regula
tion hat to a small blue cap, which
Tim facetiously calls his "uniform."
Tim says "hall" and "strike" all right,
in United States, but in a faint and
faraway voice. Owing to his lack of
height, Tim is a scream when he runs.
Tommy Connolly works with great
er ease than any of them. Connolly
siaiKis nenina inc plate, makes ni
superfluous motions and shouts h
decisions in a char voice.
Billy Evans depends solely upon his
vocal powers for making himself un
derstood. Being a person of some
width. Bill has a fierce aspect whci
decorated with a mask and chest pr-
tector. He yells "strike" and gives
the number as though talking to som"-
body in Clayton. If anybody can't hear
Bill he's a candidate for an ea
specialist. Evans is the most nimbln
man umpiring, and can beat half tho
ball players in the league to first has?
