SCIIOFIKLI) BARRACKS. Aug. 22. The first of what should prove an Interesting series cf ball games will be played tomorrow at Schofleld be tween the Coast Defense and the 25th Infantry. The series is to be the best three out of five games, and all the details fcr the other games will be arranged tomorrow between Lt G. L. Van Deusen and Lt R. P. Harbold, the respective managers. The baseball enthusiasts cf the army both at Schofleld Barracks and in town have been urging such a series since the close of the Army league Fames in which the 25th Infantry bare ly nosed out the heavy artillerymen for the army championship cf the terri tory. In this series these two teams were pitted against each other only tviee. each winning a game. The 21th Infantry won all the other games they played, while the Coast Defense 1 fuccumbed in tho first game they j played at. Schofleld to the 1st InfantT.; thereby losing cn more game In the" series than the 2rth. j The Coast Defense were at a dls-. advantage nlay'ng all their games at.

But I don't know that I felt any betts than I have in previous springs which rave not been followed by nearly so successful . seasons. Several friends have asked me the ' reason, and the only reply I coull make to all of them lias been: - ; "I'm getting the breaks."- Everything has been breaking for me this year. The club has support ed me better in .the field and at the bat than any other pitcher on the New, York staff, I believe. In almost every game I have started, they have Denegre of the Yale University crew put runs under me to make my work for next year has announced that after easier.

In other words, the fielders knew where a certain man was liable to hit a curve ball close or a fast one. My control helped in this. Then there was a grad ual changing the team and new blood was shifted in. The new-comers were not used to my methods, and for two years nothing would break for me. Once more they are bending for me this season. As a side remark, I want to say that golf has helped me in my pitching. On the off days that I do not work I find that the amount of exercise which a round or two of golf will give me keeps roe on edge. The mistake I made last season was to play on morn ings that I was to start a ball game in the afternoon. It is too hard work to play 18 holes of golf and then pitch a game in one day. Another thing golf does is to keep my mind from dwelling on baseball constantly. It is a relaxation from the game at which I make my living. Demaree Has Tough Luck. On the other hand, Demaree is ex periencing a season of tough luck Nothing will break for him. His big asset up to this yi-ar was his control.

There Is much significance In Capt Denegre's announcement On the sur face it would seem to indicate a fixed, purpose in New Haven to give the English style a test to the finish. Nothing is said as to the rigging of the boats, but there is little room for doubt that Nickall's ideas as to this are also to prevail. That both crews are to row under Nickall's domination makes it clear that the Yale manage ment is well satisfied with the results ef the season just past the trick has him worried to death. So it goes with players. One year things will break for them and they make great records. Another season, they get some of the bad breaks, folks begin to knock, and they start to be lieve that they cannot pull off any thing they try.

OF THE NATIONAL The baseball sensation of both big leagues this year is the Boston club cf the National. The Braves are just running amuck, and vwhen New York lost to Cincinnati yesterday, while Bos ton took an enforced lay-off on account cf rain at Pittsburg, the Giants drop ped back to within one point of Stall frigs' team. Today's late cable resuHs cf the eastern games may reverse the position of the leaders and then again it may not y Boston was scheduled to play Pitts burg a final fame today andthen the. Braves ;jumiS 6 0'feib'for a ! threes game series ccmmenclngc next Monday. New York ha two more with the Reds, including' today's game, and then goes to St Louis for three more. It looks as though Boston had a bit the better of this break.jfor the.Cards are in third place and fighting hard, while the Cubs, although only four points back ofthem, do not look into so dangerous, f Any way you take it it's a grand race iri'the first division. New York, and Boston clash in the latter's home town September 6, 7 and 8. and if the race Is still close, the fur will certainly fly. Then the Giants and Braves meet again at Gotham September 30, October 1. 2 and 3, the last meeting of the season for the two teams. "Johnny" Evers is largely responsi ble for the sudden success of the Braves, according to the eastern base ball writers. "Evers Is playing better ball than 1 ever saw him show in Chicago dur ng my time." declared "Vic" Saier, the Chicago first baseman, in a recent interview. "He is hitting In the pinch es, and he Is always getting on. The oitching cf Rudolph and James, com bined with the batting of Connolly. Evers and Devore, Is keeping that club going at a dangerous clip." Managers Reduced to Ranks. - Many . men. after they have been managers, find it hard to return to the ranks and make good, as Evers has dona Bresnahan Is playing good ball for the Cubs now, but he can't touch for consistency what he showed when he wa 8 with the Giants or when he was manager of the Cardinals. Roger was fighting for every point as the leader of the St Louis club before he get Into difficulties with the own ers. As a catcher on the Giants he was one of the best men behind the bat not barring "Johnny" KHng in his prime. Bresnahan could play his own position and keep track of the rest of the game to a nicety. The other play ers on the club were always on their toes and he was hollering and sug gesting to them and riding them all the time. In other words, he kept the team un to the limit of its efficiency, which it is largely up to a catcher to do. The slovenliness of many catchers is responsible fr the slow work of a lot of big league teams. FIRE THREATENS THE STANFORD FOOTBALL FIELD AND BLEACHERS By Latest Malll STANFORD U NI VER SIT Y.

PROTEST LOST BY SINGLE VOTE OF LEAGUE St. Louis and Asahis Support Paresa Hawaiis, Punahous and Coast Defense Oppose The protest of the Portuguese Ath letic club against last Sunday's Oahu league game, which w-as won by the Chinese Athletic Union after 12 in nings, was considered by the league directors rand thrown cut of court. Manager,' Paresa of the Portuguese then asked for an appeal to the board of arbitration, but this request was also turned -down so that the disputed game stands on the records and the percentages of the teams remain the same. The Portuguese protest was on the point of whether a base runner on sec end in the eighth inning was entitled to one or two bases on a play that came up in that frame. A sacrifice fly was hit to center on which a runner scored from third. The ball was fleld 1 to third, an overthrow resulting on which the runner on second. Joe Or nellas, scored. He was sent back to third and the run disallowed on the ground that he had not attempted to make third cn the sacrifice fly an1 that the cne base to which the over throw entitled him was third base. Beth umpires agreed on this nolnt Last night at the meeting there was considerable discussion over the pro test Umpire Stay ton was not pres ent but sent a communication cover 'ng the points mtlined above. George Bruns, the field umpire, was present and gave the same views.

Nation al League, John B. Day, founder of the New York baseball club, which has controlled the Giants since now draws a small salary for super vising the turnstiles at the Polo grounds. Day's fortune, made in 1SS and 188$. when the Giants won two world's championships from the St Louis Browns and the Brooklyns. re spectively, was swept away in vainly fighting the Brotherhood revolt of 1S90. He sacrificed all to remain loy al to the National League, which, without his allegiance, would have been crushed in mldseason. In fart. ! ivay refused a half interest in the New York Brotherhood club, together with a $25A0 salary to serve as pre sident. Players Broke Faith. The story of Diy's ruin is an old one. but his w.onderful faith in th? ball players who threw him down never has been told. At the sugges tion, of James Mutrie, Day organized the old Metropolitans, who wen the American Association championship in 18S1. He leased the Polo grounds, then located at Fifih avenue and One Hundred and Tenth street. As the National League was the parent body. Day snd Mutrie pocn applied for a franchise to operate a New York club. Tflio toam woe n lrlrn a nof1 Iha fllantai in 18S7 because the players included big men Buck Kw'ng. Roger Connor. Tim Keefe, Jim O'Uourke, Mike Slat tery and others. During that season the New York club made $100,000, while in 18S8 Day's profits were said to have been double that amount. John M. Ward, George Gore. Mike Tiernan. Mickey Welsh. Ed Crane, Danny Richardson Bill Brown. Arthur Whitney. Gil Hef field, Pat Murphy and Titcorab were added to the chub's roster from time to time, so that when the pennant was captured in 1889 Day was literally rolling in wealth. He paid more than $60,000 to the players in salaries from the Brooklyns. He allowed them to pocket the New York club's entire shard of the receipts. It was during the fo!iowins winter that the Giants, with Cue exception of Tiernan, Welch and Murphy, agreed to desert Day. They had joined the Brotherhood, which had formed a se cret agreement with various financial backers to organize a rival circuit called the Players League. When Mutrie informed Day, therefore, that all but three of , the- Giants had de cided to jump, the New York magnata replied: Didn't Believe It. "I do not believe a word of it! I have treated my boys . liberally and fairly. You cannot make roe believe that they are; not real men. that they are simply a lot of Ingrates. Why, they haven't said a "word to me about this - brotherhood -because- they havd ho grievances I cannot adjust in a few minutes." . : - : A week later Day learned that he had been terribly deceived. Buck Sw ing and Tim Keefe, who had been his personal friends, led the revolt Sev eral Wall street brokers who had ten dered a banquet to Day just after the world's series were among the back ers of the New York Brotherhood Club. They invited Day to join them, but he promptly refused. In the summer of 1890 Day, who had secured a new team and also had paid 3 , ' I M I I $t0.0oo to the late Jchn T. Brush for Glasscock. Tenny. Rusie. Buckley. Bas srtt. IoyIe and Scanlon, of the In dianapolis team, began to fly signals of distress. His games at the Polo grounds, which he had built on th plot at One Hundred and Fifty-fifth street and Eighth avenue, had attract ed an average of 200 paid admissions, so that his losses footed up closo to $1000 each day. Other National league club owners came to Day's assistance with $100, 000 to enable his team to play out the schedule, but thv also took away his stock. At the end of this disastrous year the brotherhood backers, who had discovered that the public did not care ror war, tnrew up tneir nanus ana were glad to consider a plan for con solidating the rival clubs in the var ious cities. But John S. Day. froxen out of the club he organized, was left without a dollar. Feds Due For Blowup. "The present Federal League move ment reminds me of the old days," 6aid Day. "The nlayers who have de serted organized baseball have no grievances. Neither are they grateful for the fair treatment they have re ceived. It is a case of money, not sentiment, and the backers of the Fed eral League will soon follow the ex ample of the men who blindly flnanc ago. They will quit In disgust ready ago. They will quit in dusgust ready to sue for peace with the National and American leagues. "The Players' League failed because the public did not take stock in tin players' alleged grievances. Then, again, the conflicting dates, the wrang ling in the newspapers and the con tract jumping by stars killed interest in the game- New York fans know that the Giants had been well paid by me and that they had been un grateful. "When I learned that all but three of my players had deserted me I was shocked. I couldn't believe that men whom I had befriended in many ways were willing to turn their backs on me without first talking lt over. But I stuck to the National League as a matter of principle, and when they naked me to join their movement It was an insult pure and simple. Glad He Made Fight "It's an old story, but I shall never forget It- It cut me to the quick to see my old friends. Buck Ewing. John Ward. Tim Keefe, Roger Connor and others playing for a rival club. But I fought the Brotherhood as far as I was able to go and I do net regret If, ' '. y.-v "The Giants were great players In those days. They were real chan pions, but I do not believe that they could have beaten some of the teams that John McGraw has managed In recent years. 1 think that baseball has become much faster. There la more Inside stuff than. In my days as as ,a pitchers and I've not forgotten Keefe.,. Clarkson, HcCormlck.r Welsh, Galvin, Bufflngton. Ferguson, Bald win.

His personality made him a card, for he was popular with the fans In all of. the National League cities.
