Bloomington, 111., Aug. 26. It was
too much Bluejacket yesterday and
the slipping Sox -never got a look-in at
any time. The Ojibway chieftain had
everything and the visitors broke their
tiacks in wild swings at the elusive
borsehide. Five segregated bingles
ere combed from Blue's assortment

to juxtaposition in the Ultimate stanza

fang from an ignominious shutout.
Opposed to "Loot Black" was Roder

In the first and seventh innings, grab
bing one run in each of these frames.
With two gone in the ninth, the Sox
Staged their rally. Holke boosted dy
ing hopes with a resounding .Jhree-ply
mash to the outskirts. Otto Koep
plng scratched a tingle and the white
fcaired first packer romped homeward.

yesterday and Detroit took the second

fr Detroit and lasted less than an In

and Willett was sent to the rescue. He
was greeted by Janvrin's double which
which counted Yerkes. but tightened
up and pitched splendidly thereafter.
Leonard allowed only one hit until
the fourth, when four hits gave the
Tigers three runs. Again, in the fifth.

Detroit started i.t Leonard, and sin-
man, Cobb and Beach
scored Baumaon and brought Bedient
to the rescue. Bedient trtpped Veach
off first, then Cobb started for home.
Munday shot the ball to Nunamaker
and the umpire said "safe." A mo
ment later Veach brought in the win
ning run on a wild pitch. Cady went
behind the bat for Boston in the sixth,
but stayed there only a minute. He
objected to a decision by Umpire Fer

ROCK ISLAND IN
NEW K.C, LEAGUE
Plans Now Under Way for 1914
Season Monmouth to Play
W. C. U. Sunday.
Although the entry of Rock Island,
Davenport and Moline into the Knights
ot Columbus baseball league this sum
mer failed to materialise, it is a fore
gone conclusion that when the summer
of 1914 rolls around they will be in
the "ring." Owing to the late start, it
was found impossible to perfect the
proposed circuit this year, but such
will not be the case In the future.
Plans are now under way towards the
organization of the new circuit which
will 'comprise the following cities':
Rock Island, Davenport. Moline, Ke
wanee, Galesburg and Monmouth.
Manager Phillips, the gentleman
who endeavored to launch the K. C.
league early this season, and who has
carried the Monmouth K. C. team
through a very successful season thus
far, will bring his team to Rock Is
land Sunday afternoon to meet the
local W. C. U. aggregation. While in
the city, Phillips expects to confer
with local K. C. baseball moguls, and
start the ball rolling for the new or
ganization. The Monmouth team is considered
one of the fastest in western Illinois
and has excited much favorable com
ment because of the gentlemanly con
duct of its individual members on the
ball field. The game3 have been de
void or "crabbing," w rangling and um
pire baiting. The local W. C. U. team
will play a return game at Monmouth
Sept. 21. The Monmouth K.lC.'s will
leave the Maple City Sunday .morning
at 7:30, arriving here in time to attend
high mass at 10 o'clock at Dean
Trl-city fans will be treated to a
good game and are planning to turn
out en force.
FAMOUS MAJOR LEAGUER
DIES AT PHILADELPHIA
Philadelphia, Pa.. Aug. 26. Frank
L. "Red" Donahue, st.ar pitcher a
dozen years ago, died at his home here,
yesterday after a long i.lness. H?
was 41 years old. He retired frm
baseball seven year6 ago to engage in
the ho'el business.
Donahue entered professional base
ball in 1892, when he played with the
Milford, Conn. team. Later he played
wit.h Lowell of the New England
league and with the Allentown, Pa.
team. He signed up with the St. Louis
Nationals in 18t6, and the following
year was with the Philadelphia Na
tionals, with which team he remained
until 1902, when he entered the Amer
ican league, playing successively with
S'-. Louis, Cleveland and Detroit.
While with the Philadelphia Nation

Clemann for revision. Mr. Clemann
was authorized to make any necessary
changes and place the tabulations in

Cleveland, Aug. 2ti. Two hundred

convention of the National Association
of Deaf. They - were guests of Presi

Cleveland, O., Aug. 26. Pitcher
George McConnell of the New York
Americans will be out of the game for
three weeks at least. The middle fin
ger of his pitching hand was so badly
broken yesterday when he stopped a
ball from Leibold's bat that the bone
protruded from the flesh.

St. Louis, Aug. 26. The latest base
ball rumor In St. Louis is that George
Stovall is to be asked to quit as man
ager of the Browns, and that Roger
Bresnahan is to be invited to take his
place. Until just recently tie dope
seemed to be that Branch Rickej
would succeed Stovall when the latter
gentleman stepped out. Now they say
President HedgeB plans soon to retire
and that the former Michigan coach
will be made president cf the Browns.
Wit.h Bresnahan managing the local
American leaguers, there seems little
doubt but that they would make a
Bresnahan is Immensely popular In
St. Louis, where he took hold of the
Cardinals and made them a factor In
the pennant race of 111. His failure
in 1912 was due, largely to interfer
ence. He would draw at the gate and
being a wise baseball man might suc
ceed where Stovall has failed in boost
ing the Browns.
As a matter of fact, Stovall can
hardly be counted a failure, as he has
not had time to rebuild such a deplor
able aggregation as are the Browns.
For the latter half of the season he
has been hampered in his authority
by constant, rumors of his retirement,
and these have been denied in a half
But Bresnahan would bring with
him prestige as well as ability, and
some ready-made popularity besides.
He is in the National league, of course,
but unless Murphy wants to retain him
as manager of the Cubs a thing now
hardly likely the Cub bess has little
use for him. No other team in the
National stands in much need of him,
as his days as an active catcher are
practically over and he can be used,
merely as a manager. Every head in
the older league is fairly safe this sea
son, and getting waivers on Bresnahan
to 6ell him to St. Louis should not be

game of the series at Commy's arena
yesterday. For once In their lives,
Callahan's men set out and picked up
a few runs for the big Texas southpaw,
hence he had no trouble In winning,
even though decidedly 6hy on his cus
tomary stuff. The score was 5 to 2.
Being peeved over the fluky loss of
a game the day previous, the sox went
out and put the skids under the Wash
ington fellows in a hurry. They staged
so much unexpected offensive work
that Bob Groom was beaten before he
was started. Berger handed him a
sickening blow by shoving a homer -to
the scoreboard in center In the firr.
round and before he recovered from
the shock two more went over. The
last were perpetrated in the second
round, after which Groom survived un
til the end of the sixth.

The attendance at Lake View is al

efforts will be made to bring this up
to the 50.000 mark in the next eight

in getting the high attendance.
Next Friday, the Barnum and Bailey

OQCATIR READY TO QVIT.
"How Decfttur can have a Three Eye
baseball club next year Is more than
I can see," said a prominent official of
the Decatur team Saturday. "The
main reason is that the club is head
over heels In debt already and it will
be pretty hard to find anyone who will
want to assume any of the obligations
and go ahead w ith the proposition.
"Because of the successful sale of
Pitcher Schupp, last year's debts were
reduced to about $4,000. According to
my figures, we will be exceedingly for
tunate if we get through without los
ing more than $3,000. The cash re
ceipts, both at home and abroad, were
smaller this year than any other year
In history, I believe. And I don't think
that the total attendance this season
will go over 30,000.
"It Is easy to see then that the club
will begin next season with an exceed
ingly heavy debt. If there is an 'angel'
who will assume these obligations he
has not yet revealed himself." De

Chief Vaught, the Lincoln star, who
was sought by Manager Syfert, went
to Springfield instead, the Senators
making him a better offer. He showed

Shortstop Spicer will probably not

least within several days. Should Dug
