Rebel From Phillies" CaJiip Performs
Brilliantly For Brookfeds
Against IvnetAor.
Pittsburg, April 15. The Brooklyn
Federal league team defeated the
Pittsburg Rebels by a score of 1 to
0 in the opening game of the Federal
league season here yesterday. The at
tendance was about 14,000 and the
saw thrills enough to suit the aver
age fan! The young Brooklyn left
fielder, Cooper, who was taken by
stealth from John McGraw, went into
the crowd several times for fly balls
and generally came up with the
sphere in his hands.
Tom Seaton was invincible all the
way. He had his curve ball working
and the home men nearly broke their
backs trying to place the ball safe
ly. Elmer Knetzer, the former
Dodger, who pitched for Pittsburg,
was unfortunate in the tenth inning,
when he and his infield wavered for
a moment, just long enough to lei
the Tip Tops came under the
wire first. In the fatal tenth Hof

dered Knetzer to walk Murphy, who
looked dangerous. Besides. Wester

this time he hit between McDonald's
legs for a single, scoring Hofman
with the only run of the game.

Ex-Crimson Captain Will Not Play
Against Holy Cross Today.
New York, April 15. The an
nouncement yesterday that Charlie
Hann, the former Harvard first base
man, had injured a bone in his right
ankle and would be out of the Co
lumbia lineup, in today's game with
Holy Cross at South field did not de
press Head Coach Lush much. Lush
said that the team was in such fine
fettle, that Hann could be spared to
rest up a few days without a defeat
resulting from the move.
Buncke, who hit so well in the
Penn series at Atlantic City, will
move .from right field to first base.
It . will not be new to him, as he
played 1 the position' part of last sea
son. Danny Meehan has been show
ing so much improvement in his few
days' practice that he probably will
play in the outfield today., Coogan,
the former Georgetown man, will not
play, as he has not been declared eli
gible as yet. Jim O'Neale will start
in the box for Columbia and Coach
Coakley says the slim youth is still
in winning form.
Maurice B. ("Lefty) Flynn, the
.famous Yale fullback, has been elect
ed a member of . the New York A. C.
He is a possibility for the all-around
athletic championship. Before he
became a pigskin chaser "Lefty" was
a good hurdler and shot-putter. On
account- of his strength and speed the
experts believe "Lefty" can be de
veloped into one of the best all
around me in the world. He will
be eligible to represent the Mercury
Foot in the junior championships in

French Lion Tamer Disposes of
Mitchell in Opening Round.
Paris, April 15. George S. Mitch
ell, the amateur heavyweight cham
pion of North England, was knocked
out last night by the French cham
pion, Georges Carpentier, in the first
round after one minute, and 35 sec
onds" of fighting. At that, he man
aged to last twenty-two seconds long
er against the French man than djd
Bombardier Wells in his bout, with
Carpentier at the National Sporting
club in London a few months ago.
Mitchell is the nephew of P. H. 111
igworth, the chief liberal whip in
the British parliament and hails from
Bradford. He stands six feet three
inches, and weighs 177 pounds about
the same weight, as Carpentier. He
had the advantage, however, of hlb
great height and reach.
in the single round of the fight,
Carpentier knocked the Englishman
down five times. Four times he' man
aged to get to his feet after the
count of nine, but on the fifth knock
down the referee counted only as far
as six and then said:
"Gentlemen, the fight la over. This
man has had enough."
Mitchell entered the contest, he
said, in advance, with no idea of
beating Carpentier, he was merely cu
rious to see how long he could last.
He displayed pluck and managed
to land one or two blows on the
Frenchman's chest and shoulders.
.Before he was finally disposed of, he
essayed one vicious swing which
would doubtless have knocked , out
the Frenchman, but it failed to find
the mark by a fraction of an inch.
The geniuine sporting ( nature of the
match and Mitchell's modesty
aroused great interest in England and
France, and the gymnasium where
the . contest took place was crowded
to the doors. , ' .
. Banbury, April 15. A large num
ber of Connecticut ball tossers have

McCabe of the Poughkeepsie, N. Y.,
team has signed as pitcher Chick
Evans of Hartford, who was formerly
in ( the Connecticut league. He has a
record of having shut out Bridgeport
without a batsman reaching first.
New London, April 15. Timely hit
ting by the local club defeated the
Providence team of the International
league here yesterday by a score of
5 to 2. Orover, who twirled for the
visitors, was touched up for eleven
hits, practically all coming at the op
portune moment. The local pitchers
were tight at all times and at no
time did the Grays threaten to take
the game away from the Planters.
