Chicago, 111, July 13. Chicago base
ball fans are not going to be surprised
if some of the world's series games
are played here this fall. They will not
be surprised, either, If within another
fortnight the Cubs are basking in the
sunshine of first place.
Manager Hank O'Day, after getting
away to a poor start, seems to have
the boys working with almost the same
machine-like regularity that made the
1906 Cubs famous.
The Giants hare a lead that some
persons may term commanding, but it's
nothing to get over-confldent about. It's
a lead that a week or bo of hard luck
may clip away, and with the end of the
season still eleven weeks off there Is
every reason for the Cubs to feel hope
ful about the ultimate outcome of the
race as it concerns them.
The best part of the Cub uprising is
the fact that the entire team now will
ingly concedes to Hank the job of
leader, and instead of pulling about
ten different ways the gang is pulling
together for Hank and for victory.
Earlier in the year when the Cubs
were going like a lame and spavined
mule, Roger Bresnahan, Tommie Leuch
and Frank Schulte, in whose bonnets
there was buzzing the managerial bee,
didn't exert themselves overly much,
according to reports. Twas said they
figured that if Hank continued to make
a poor show ing as manager, he would
be deposed sooner or later, and that

VELIE HAS LOW SCORE
IN MEN'S PRELIMINARY
W. L. Velle won the handicap golf
match against the bogy at the arsenal
links Saturday. It was the fifth pre
liminary for the men's handicap cup.
Good playing was prevented because
of warm weather, but Velie finished
the round jn. 77 strokes, with a net
score of 4 up. His nearest competitors,
F. W. Bahnsen, who won the last
match, J. L.. Thatcher, G. F. BurmeU
ter. Decker French and W. B. StarR
had 1 up. J. X. Cady, next in strokes,
had 78 with two down. The scores of
the others were as follows:

Bull Froge Win.
The Bull Frogs defeated the Hubers
in a game that went 13 Innings by a
score of 3 to 2 at Lin wood yesterday.
The result was in doubt to the final
frame. The hitting of Lindenatruth
featured the combat. The batteries
were: Hube-rs Mordhorst and Mord
horst; Bull Frogs Franks and Huntley.
the job of handling the Cub reins would
be given over to one of the trio. So
why work your head off to win games,
when by losing them It brings the pos
sibility of your becoming a manager,
the ambition of -every major league
But all of a sudden the Cubs began
to sit up and everybody in the vicinity
took notice of the process. The Cub
twirlers began pitching in real form,
the infield and outfield began working
with machine-like regularity and the
whole gang began hitting like fiends.
From a position near the bottom of the
heap the Cubs shot up just behind the
first place Giants and seemed untired
by the pace. They continued to play
at a .700 clip, and although they since
have received a couple of setbacks,
they seem to have the power to do a
real "come-back" and remain in the
come-back position right to the Octo
Hank isn't making pennant predic
tions, but his bunch has become fired
with the idea of landing on top of the
heap, and right now they are showing
as much "pep" as any team in the big
league. Hank's pitching staff is a bit
weak. He needs one seasoned, reliar
ble pitcher to bolster it up, and he
needs a hard-hitting addiiton to his
outfield. Given this pair for which he
is searching both day and night and
Uie Chicago fans may yet count on the
privilege of seeing a world's series
combat in their home town.
ILLINOIS OIL COMPANY
TEAMS WIN TWO GAMES
Both Illinois Oil company teraia
were returned winners yesterday af
ternoon at the Island City park. The
most interesting game was played be
tween the Lightweights and the Car
dinals. Neither side scored until the
ninth inning when the Oil company
pushed over one run. Koester for the
Cardinals allowed only three hits.
while Taber allowed five. The score:
Lightweights 1 3 1
Cardinals 0 5 1
Batteries Taber-Bisman; Koester
Whistler. The Oil Company's first team de
feated a fast Muscatine nine by a
score of 9 to 7. The locals were given
a scare In the seventh inning when
the visitors scored seven runs. Geiger
worked on the mound for the winners
with Allen behind the bat.
CUBS LOSE DOUBLE BILL
TO THE SLUGGERS' TEAM
The Rock Island Sluggers walloped
the Colts In two straight games at the
Reservoir park yesterday afternoon.
The first combat was taken by a score
of 7 to 5, and the second 8 to 6. Botn
were bitterly contested. The games
were featured by the fielding of J.
Bledsoe and the hitting of Wilcox for
the winners. The batteries for the
Sluggers In both games were F. Bled
Boe and E. Bledsoe; and for the Cubs,
Cavanaugh and Bredar.
