HARDIN AND DALY WORK
Seven Hits the Total tor the. Day-

Peoria at Cedar Rapids.
Ycstei day's game with Springfield
was a buttle royal between pitchers
and the game was marred onlv bv Me
Bride's work in left field which gave
the Senators the one run which won
tl:e contest. .MeBride held the hall
when a runner rounded third aud his
throw, which was from short left field
was so lar wide of the mark when lie
Anally decided to throw that the run
ner had no difficulty in crossing the
pan, wIk'ii au ordinary return of thb
ball would have caught him by 10
ards. Kxcept tor this one play, the
work of the Islanders' fielding was
brilliant, both MeBride and Murphy
making line catches.
Manna aim uaiy were opposed to
each other for the second time this
year and the Springfield man was fo"
tunat.- enough to get away with the
contest. He was hit hard and often
but the J rives were almost always in
to some one's hands. The Springfield
gardeneis were kept pretty busy catch
ing hard hit balls, and some sensa
tional fielding was the result. Four
safe hits were made off Hardin in the
nine rounds, and three were garnered
off the visitor, making a total of seven
hits fur both teams, which is going
gome when all things are considered.
Three In n Knuuil.
I'nfottuuaUly for Hardin, three of
the visitors' hits came in the one
rouiiil. the fourth, and these with Mc
lirhh 's blunder cost the game. The
three hits alone were not sufficient to
win, as all of them were short hits
which the batters had reason to con
gratulate themselves on for their good
luck. The first hitter was caught on
the buses and with no accidents or
lisplays, the game might have been
ouij; on yet. in which case it would
lobably have been a victory for the
iaihler.-, as Hardin was getting bet-
er right along, and Daly was hesin-

Head of National League Fires
Bullet Through Head at
, New York.
Lives Over Night With Hole Through I
Brain from Temple to Temple,
But Is Not Conscious. -
New York, July 29. Harry C. Pul
llam, president of the National League
of Professional Baseball Clubs, died at
8:10 today after shooting himself
through the head in his room in the
New York Athletic club last night.
Although the bullet passed entirely
through his head, severing both optic
nerves and causing instant blindness,
Pulliam lived from 9:30 last night un
til this morning. He became uncon
scious soon after the shooting was
discovered, and was unable to make
any statement as to his reason for
committing suicide, but it Is generally
attributed to ill health.
Henlth Alarm Krlendn.
Pulllam's health, particularly his
nervous condition, had been so poor
for several months as to cause alarm
among his friends. Atter the spring
meeting of the National league in Feb
ruary he was granted an indefinite
leave of absence and spent several
months with relatives in Tennessee

tie returned to his duties about a
month ago and seemed to be consid
erably improved by his long rest. His
health soon began to give way again.
It is reported he recently spent a week
in a sanitarium.
Mr. Pulliam's room was on the
third floor and he retired early in
the evening. It was about 9:30
o ciock when a telephone call came
from his room to the switchboard
downstairs, but when it was answer
ed there was no further response
Repeated ringings disclosed the fact
that the receiver, must have been
taken from the hook.
Thereupon Thomas Brady, an attend
ant in the club, was sent up to the
room. The door was unlocked and
he found Mr. Pulliam, clad only in
his underwear, lying on the floor,
with a large revolver clasped in his
hand. Only one cartridge had been
. A glance was enough to tell Brady
that the well known- baseball man
was in a serious condition, and he
lost no time in summoning Dr.. Hig
gins. the club physician.
'I'b rT-!: Mournn.
President M. H. Sexton, president
of the Three-Eye league, was pri
vately not I lied of Pulliam's death to
day and immediately issued a request
that all Three-Eye league clubs iiy
their flags at half-mast for a period
of live days.
President Sexton today received a
telegram from the I lost oh Olobe for
some expression of sentiment, which
he uromntlv answered navinir a hitrh
tribute to the deceased chief of the
1-Vlt NaKttlnic Too Krenlf.
Speaking of Mr. Pulliam to an Ar
gus representative, Mr. Sexton said:
Mr. Pulliam was a remarkable man
brainy, fearless and conscientious in
the discharge of duty. It was un
doubtedly the heart interest that he
took in baseball which led up to the
mental trouble eventuating in the
terrible tragedy which took him from
earth. Being of a sensitfve dispo
sition, the worries and nagging 'at
tendant upon his position wore upon
him and broke him down, where
other men differently constituted
have stood the strain.
"The first symptoms of mind
trouble developed several months
ago. He was granted a leave of ah
sence and recently returned to his
duties, as it was thought, fully re
cuperated and restored to health. He
was wonderfully qualified for the po
sition he held and was an honor to
the administration of the national
game. I knew him personally. HeSame).

and of a fine personality.".

The Sporting News, printed in St.
Louis and devoted exclusively to base-
ball. in this week's isue comes out
with a roast for Manager Jack Tighe
of Rock Island that will arouse a
good deal of curiosity as to the source
of its inspiration, so personal and so
bitter is the language in which it is
couched. It is obvious that the editor
of (he News, who is presumed to have
written" or at least to have seen it le
(fore printing it, is not personally fa-
miliar with Mr. Tighe or his aietho ls
on thebaH field. Therefore the in
