To tell about this affair would be the same as describing one of the battles in the trenches, for after the first round, it was simply a question of how long Ames could not stand up under the terrific grueling that the "Silent One" administered to him. To cap the climax a wound over Ames left eye was opened in the fifth round and this added to the ghastly slaughter that was going on. Several times the boiler maker from the "Superior City" tried to stave off the blows of Martin and gave his ad herents a chance to root for him, but the ultimate outcome was the pound ing in a , terrible manner of his face. Ames showed the S. O. S. signs in the fifth round when Martin reached his jaw with bombarding rights, and it was noticeable to those at the ring side that he was fast losing his speed and stamina. The affair came to a close at opening of the eighth round when at the sound of the bell Ames arose and walking across the ring he shook Martin by the hand and Referee Willis announced that he was ready to quit. The announcement was met with a few Jeers, but it was sound Judgement on part of the defeated who evidently believes in the old say ing that "He who fights and runs away, shall live to fight again some day." Bill Crowley the man who staged the Young Corbett-Terry Mc Govern fight, chief second for Ames showed signs of disgust on part of his "man." When the defeated "pug" left tho ring one of the eight handlers had the temerity to stop in front of the press stand and in a deep stentorian tone, he informed his listeners that Ames had broke both his hands, but the verdict of the post mortem was that Martin had broke his heart and made him quit. Referee Willis at. the close of the fight when asked for a statement said. "It looks to me like a case of quit." -Tho Prelim. Two of the most grotesque lndi- i viduals that ever graced canvass cov ered floor of a-' prize ring, styling' themselves as Johnny Sullivan (which if anybody by that name ever sees him in a ring traveling under the colors of a fighter will annihilate him) and Kid Green known by the Christian name of Frank, Baslle. who was one of the chief towel vielders at the shows of a near fight Vromoter last winter, but since grad uated to the ranks of a pug. (It's a shame to do this,) went through the torturous efforts (from a spectators standpoint) of a six round bout, and at the close of the mill it was tho agreed opinion that as boxers both J of the lads would make excellent blacksmiths. The sporting editor I of the Herald will give a prize to 4.1 T J 1 J i , , .... ' me uesi iiiiswer given juso wnat title to add to the exhibition put up by the "boxers." Sullivan in some re spects resembled Bob Fitzsimmons, (he was so much different,) on ac count of the knock-kneed attitude ho assumed while trying to find a place on "Green's" mush to plant his mighty left. At times the affair reach ed proportions that were of a side splitting nature. Around the Ring Some fight. To Manager Walsh, congratula tions. The fans were well pleased and on their good behavior. Captain Grace and Sergeant Kelly were at the ring, but their services were not needed- Both enjoyed the milling too. The usual number of 'glugs" got free advertising by the announcement route. All hats are off to Referee John (excuse me Honest John) Willis for the manner in which he handled tho mill. All walks in life were represented at the mill, the butcher, the baker and candlestick maker, coming from far and near to see the show. How do you like Hayes (Riley is not his name.) One thing that can be said in Man ager Walsh's favor is that he -does not consider himself an orator, and keeps away from the ring, thereby sparing the fans of the torturous or deal of listening to the crude verna cular such as an alleged fight pro moter in this city peddles at ht-s "bouts-" Eddie Cowles of the Waterbury "Herald," manager of "Wild Bill" Fleming was at the ringside and spoke in flattering terms about tho show. Hartford fans rooted hard for Sammy Waltz in his bout with Hayes, and were disgusted with the showing of "Red" Ames. Arrangements were completed last evening between Manager Sibbeme for Martin and Manager Cowles for "Wild Bill" Fleming for a 12-round bout in this city later in the month. The preliminary will be between Johnny Hayes and Buddy Faulkes of Waterbury- Save up your pennies boys these will be some mills, and be sure and be on hand. The date has not been set as yet. Philadelphia, Sept. 4. Boston won its third straight game from the Mackmen yesterday, an uninteresting contest, 10 to 2. Shcehan was pelted out of the box in four innings, Anker of Tcnafly, N.

As runless wonders the Yankees are in a class by themselves. After taking one came from the Senators by a lone run, they fell right back in the old rut and dropped another yesterday. However, there was some excuse for their failure to win this time. Walter Johnson was on the mound. Cy Pieh, who opposed him, gave a good ac count of himself, but was outclassed. The final score was 2 to 0. Score: r. h. e. Ntew York 000000000 0 4. 0 Washington 00000200 2 8 1 Batteries Pieh and Nunamaker; Johnson and Williams. Sox and Indians Divide. Chicago, Sept. 4. Benz was strong in the , first game of yesterday's double header with Cleveland, and the Sox easily won, to 2. The In dians counted six markers to the locals' 5 in the second game, but the affair probably will be protested. In the fourth inning Kirkle was struck out with a man on first and was auto matically out, but when the catcher dropped the pill he took first and later scored. All the Sox players and Umpire Evans overlooked the play until after the inning. In the fourth inning of the first game "Weaver made a home run with a man on, scoring the winning run.

The eyes of the lawn tennis world are now centered on the national tourney being played on the Forest Hills courts here. All the greatest racket stars of the coun try are on hand and many spirited contests have been played and many more are scheduled. Maurice Mc Loughlin. who lost his title to R. Nor ris Williams 2d last year at Newport, desires with all the intensity that is in him to win the national singles thig year. He has the good advice and hearty support of every one of the little band of players from Cal ifornia who will stick to their great champion. The details of the tourn ament have received the same care ful and efficient attention which last year contributed to make the Davis cup matches at the West Side Tennis club the most stupendous effort that the game had ever known in the world. The stands seat a total of 7,000 spectators, and it is possible that approximately another thousand may be squeezed in on the field. The challenge match in singles will be played Wednesday, Sept. 8. Natu rally, the arrangement of the draw which landed McLoughlln in one half and R. Norris Williams 2d in an other has received comment about the courts during the last week. The wide gap between McLaughlin and Williams positively avoids any possi bility of an anticlimax so far as these two are concerned before the finals are reached. Williams, who won the crown of the courts at Newport last season, is well placed in the up per half of the draw, which is a trifle stronger than the lower half.

PORT 2 LIGHT WHALERS SPEED UP IN PENNANT DASH Grantfand Rice Detroit, Mich., Sept. 2; The ques tion before the house now seems to be about this can the Phillies hold the lead they won back in June for another month Can the Tigers, after winding up with St. Louis, win an other road pennant as they did in 1909, with something like the same sort of a ball club. Conditions confronting the two clubs mentioned are not exactly the same. Philadelphia has no opponent to beat that is fighting at home all this month. Detroit has. The two main Philly rivals are the Braves and Superbas. But after this week these two also swing West, where they will confront exactly the same conditions. But the Tigers must play a trifle faster on the road than the Red Sox play at home before they can hope to send Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford against Alexander, Rudolph or Coombs some four weeks hence. If the Philliles can maintain this lead all the way they will furnish a battle requiring fully as much cour age as that shown by the Braves last fall. Most people give all credit to the runner that comes from behind. They have nothing to say for the leader who can maintain his lead. Yet it requires just as rare nerve and courage for Moran's club to protect a scanty lead as it did for the Braves to climb from last place to first. Consider the case for a brief moment. The Philliles, with a club ranked back in April as a joke, took the lead from the start, but lost It in May. They recovered the top in June, and for nearly three months now, with only a narrow gap between them and the club In second place, they have pounded along. All this time they have heard the hoof beats of several rivals within close range. All this time they have been strug gling with the pace, fighting off first cne aggressor and then the other, but nt no stage have they broken. They have slippeed here and there, but only to rally before they were caught. This takes a lot. out of any club. It is more of a strain than that of starting from behind and coming on up, for there is no greater nerve tonic than to know that you are on your way while the other contender is slip ping. But to fight on to the front, find 'then for over three months to know that any sign of faltering will drop you back is a heart breaker of the rarest order. Ask any golfer or any lawn tennis player or any runner the difference, they will all say that the big strain comes comes in setting and main taining the pace. And the Phllllies haven't one rival only to beat they have two. The Superbas were tipped to break and drop back as the Pirates the, Giants and Cubs did but they haven't. The Braves were counted out of it three or four times, but they are still coming on and fighting hard still ready to take advantage of any set back the Quakertown delegates may receive. The Phillies might figure that one of their rivals will soon Blip, but it isn't likely that both will break to gether. So their chance to win is not through any weakness on the part of their opponents, but through their own ability to continue for another month as they have been going since June. Out West they meet the same con tenders as the Superbas and the Braves. They will find exactly the tame opposition along the route. On the other hand, there will be a great psychological advantage for either Brooklyn or Boston if they can only once reach the top. They can feel that they are com ing while their rivals are going. The strain of pace setting has not been upon their shoulders or their batting eyes. And if either ever gets ahead it Is 90 cents to a nickel that said club will travel like the wind the rest of the way. The Tigers have a better psycholo gical case than the Phillies. They are in the position of the entry who has far more to gain than he has to lose. They are not being picked to win. Boston is at home in the lead. De troit is on the road. But a ball club under such conditions, where a big fight is on, often plays better abroad than at home. On the road they are together around the hotel, where they can better continue their machine morale. It was this way for the Tigers on 1909 and the Giants in 1911. Both fought harder and played far better on the September road than they had been doing at home. The lure of world's series kalo urged them on, and they both went out at top speed every start, fighting to for every foot. Detroit has this disadvantage. The Red Sox are a harder club to beat than any entry in the National league that is over a month's stretch. Their one big chance to fall down will be through over confidence. They have the stuff and no club yet has been able to stop them. "They are playing almost exactly as they played in 1912," said Eddie Col lins, recently. "Tha is. with fine con fidence every game and with fine team play. I have never seen the two clubs that looked more alike, and yet Gard ner is the only 1912 Inflelder left. It's hard to beat a club when you can't pick out a single weakness. I figure Detroit with a chance, but only in case Detroit can go to Buston and take that series. "That meeting will be a wonder, for each club will figure that it is worth about $2,000 to each man. For If Boston falls before Detroit she can hardly figure any other club to stop the Tigers. It looks to me now as if this series will settle the race." Senators Forced to Bow to Prowess of O'Brien's Boys. New Bedford, Sept. 4.
