A select gathering of bugs and bug
gettes was agreeably surprised yes
terday afternoon. when the Blue Sox
upset the prevailing dope and dented
the Springfield aggregation for two
victories. After tire Senatorial crew
had apparently tucked the first bout
safely away in their bat bags by bunch
ing hits for a quartet of runs in the
second inning, a certain Mr. Betts
ascended In the fourth inning after
successive walks had filled the bases.
Carrigan knotted the count with a
sterling bingle to right field. Lelivelt
attempted to assume the life-saving
role, but varied and assorted miscues
handed the game to the Pretzels. Don
nelly sent Betsy right back In the sec
ond, but timely swats put the after
piece cn Ice In short order. The re
spfctive scores were 8 4 and 5-3. Py

Chicago. Aug. 8. Ed Euelbach will
have to pitch a peachuva game to
make the recent Cub-Dodger trade
look C3 good to Brooklyn as W. Eddie
Stack made it look to Chicago yes
terday, vlfen he let the Phillies down
with four hits and helped the Cubs
win the opening battle of tne series
by batting in two tallies himself. Final
score, 5 to 2.
For quite a spell the pair of runs
due to Stack's single in the second
inning were all the Cubs could get off
Seaton and were solely responsible for
the fact the Trojans were out in
front. Not until the sixth chapter
did the Cubs get any more, results
from their" endeavor. Then long Cy
Williams, who has been basking in a
lot of limelight of late, cinched the
thing for Stack with a rattling three
base hit, which scored two pals.
Thomas Leach, the other half of the
long and short sketch, drove home the
fifth run in the seventh with a triple
which closely resembled Cy's.

Jimmy Callahan (top) and Johnny
, Chicago. Jake Stahl, recently de
posed as manager of the Boston Red
Sox, will not remain lonely very long,
if rumors floating1 around in this town
prove true. The rumors are to the
effect that he will soon be joined by
Johnny Evers, present leader of the
Cubs, and Jimmy Callahan.
Although rumors about the depo
sition of Evers have been going around
for some time, the Callahan sensation
is brand new. Jimmy has fallen into
a losing streak and the bleacher crit
ics are after his scalp. It is said
also that his methods of handling his
men on the field have caused soreness
among certain members of the team.
Several things are the matter with
Evers. Fans have grown restless un
der his constant run-ins with the um
pires and his habit ofgettlng put off

league, is quoted a3 saying: "The lan

If Evers is relieved of his present
duties Roger Bresnahan, who has been
warming a bench this summer, prob
ably w ill succeed him. It is well
known that when Bresnahan was' fig
uring with the owners of the Cubs
on the contract proposition one of
the principal inducements for his
coming to Chicago was that in case
of Evers' failure he would become
leader of the Cubs. Evers, it is gen
erally agreed, has failed. He is out
of the 1913 pennant race for good,
and the team is torn with internal dissension.
Jiir.mie Sullivan, the esteemed arbi-!non

before the game. Some msons ago,
the Senator backstop, who was then

Mulvey, to" be assistant director gen

signed by President John Elliott re
fused to allow Ralph Rose, George
Horlne or any other of Its members to
compete in 1915 if the appointment
stands. At a meeting of the associa

coast from the parent body was urged.
"I have no doubt," writes President
Elliott "that Mr. Mulvey is a most e'.

claim, it is reported, to recognition
that he has, is his connection with'
professional pugilism. 7

Mulvey is well known here as a

winning," is an old saying in base
ball, but at that, Danville looks more
formidable right now than either Du

Graham has-added much strength to
the team, as his batting and fielding
and his speed on bases is going to win
many a close game. A whole lot worse

; HACKETT'S REVEXC.E. " ' " 1
The National Board of Arbitration
has allowed Player Rlmington'a claim,
against the Quincy club. , According
to Tom Hackett, Rimington signed a
contract with him and was permitted
to practice with the Quincy team at
his own expense. When Hackett re
leased him, he got sore and demanded;
a certain amount as expense money
during the training season, but thqj
claim was fought at Hackett's advice. 16
is thought that Hackett furnlbhed Rlm
after he returned to Stockton and that
on the strength of this the board alf
