. SPORTIM NEWS. Frank Selee Has a Scheme to Increase Iiattiug. Suggest. That All Carre Fitch' tnff It Cat Out. ONLY STRAIGHT BALLS Ko Strain on the Slab Artists' Arms That War. Bat Thejr Would Hare to Be Good Dodgers. Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. 13. While dis cussing a method for increasing batting Manager Prank Selee of the Cubs has proposed a new argument. "Many of the enemies of the foul strike rule have claimed that the game has been Injured by the handicap placed on the batting," said Selee, "but if they want to increase batting, I would sug gest that they cut out all curve-ball pitching and have nothing but straight balls. Let the pitchers depend on speed. This would be a great srivirg of pitchers also, as it is the curve pitcii ing that wears an arm out. A straight shoot would be easier to hit and it would increase batting. We would then have to have better outfielders, for they would have to cover more ground nd learn , to run back on the ball.,, A pitcher could work three or tour times a week without injury, for there would be comparatively no strain on his arm. Many pitchers are more successful even now with a straight ball than they are with a curve. "I am not advocating this measure by ny means, but if the people that are anxious to increase the batting in the game want a good way to do it let them take up that line of argument." Mordecai Brown was a party to this conversation and had this to say: "I haven't any doubt but that it ..would increase the batting bo that it Would satisfy any one, .but if they should make such a law they will have to supply the pitchers with armor plate protection, for I'm sure I would not be willing to risk my life in front of the gun. It is bad enough on a pitcher the way it is and unless a pitcher is a good dodger these days he is likely to be put on the hospital list any time." FOR TWI.NTY HOVND BOIT. Tommy Ryan and Philadelphia Jack O'Brien Matched. New Yoik, Sept. 13. Tommy Ryan, the middle-weight champion, and Philadelphia Jack O'Brien have agreed to fight 20 rounds for the middle weight title. They have about reached an amicable understanding as to the weight at which they will clash and have all but signed articles. Ryan wants to fight at 156 pounds, ring side: O'Brien demands that the figure be made 15S at 3 o'clock, which is the real middle-weight limit. The fight will probably take place before the International Athletic association, of Rouse's Point, New York. Negotiations for this match, hwve been going on for some weeks. Up to today Ryan has refused to talk right. Now, however, he has come to the bat and is. ready to sign articles aa soon as the weight question can be adjusted. As the champion he thinks he has the right to say at what figure he will scale in at. The International Athletic associa tion of Rouse's Point made an offer of a (10,000 purse for a light between Ryan and O'Brien some days ago. With the offer was a promise to post half ths rurse at the time the fight ers signed articles. The club stands ready to make good and only the af fixing of the fighters' names to the document is needed to guarantee one of the best fights that has been seen in some years. WHY NEW YORK WINS. McGlnnity, Matthewson and Wiltse Do Great Slab Work. New York. Sept. 13. Mike Donlin suspended and released by Cincinnati to New York in a trade, is the man leading the National leaeue at nresent. Donlln has taken part in seventy-six unira ana nis Datting figure is .3 4 2. Dunn of New York is second, as he has tairen part in thirty-six games and bat ted at a .340 clip. Then comes Hans wagner with 117 games and an aver age of .336. Two weeks ago Grady was leading, with Wagner second, but oraay Had now dropped to fifth place. Prank Chance being in fourth. Beck Jey has also taken a drop and is bat- xing out a single point above .300 Mnoot and Shannon are the next two oatters to show for St. Louis The pitching record pays a high xrioute 10 wiltse, the New York south paw, the latter having won ten games out of that number pitched. McGin- nlty is the one who deserves the main credit, however, as he has pitched 34 games and won 2 8. Matthewson has made the brilliant record of pitching in u games ana winning 31 of these. With McGinnity, Matthewson and Wiltse on the slab it is easy to under stand why New York has been win ning the pennant without half trvintr Nichols Is still the leading twirler for St. Louis, with J9 games won and 9 lost. Jack Taylor is second, with 17 games won and as many lost. Then follow McFarland. O'Neill and Dun- leavy in the order mentioned. Racing at New York. New York. Sept. 13. Diamond, at 7 to t. won the I15.0UO Produce stakes, which was the opening feature of the autumn meeting at Brighton Beach. The Pro duce is run in two parts, being for colts and geldings. The second half will be for fillies. Only a fair field of 2-year-oids faced the starter for this race, with Wild Mint and Jack Lory equal first choices at 12 to 5. The start was bad.

FITZ WANTS THE WLVXER. Lanky Bob Would Like to Fight Ryan or O'Brien. New York, Sept. 13. Bob Fitzsim mons announced today that he would meet the winner of the Tommy Ryan Jack O'Brien fight for the middle weight championship of the world. "Many people think I have reached that stage where I can no longer get down to 15 8 pounds," said the Cornish man, "but I will fool them. "Immediately after Ryan and O'Brien settle their argument I will post a forfeit of $1,000 to bind a match with the winner. In a long fight I think Ryan is O'Brien's match, unless he has gone back considerably, and it would not be a surprise to me if he finished Jack inside of twenty rounds. O'Brien is not used to bouts of more than six rounds, and for that reason Ryan, who is more experienced than O'Brien, will beat him down in 12. or 15 rounds. It is immaterial to me who wins. I don't think It would take me more than 10 or 12 rounds to dispose of Ryan or O'Brien." - In the American Loajrue. Uncertainty marks the going in the American league. When Boston drop ped Pat Dougherty the Champs were so far ahead that it looked like an ex ercise gallop' for Jim Collins" team. That deal, which created so much commotion at the time, was responsi ble for letting just enough steam out of the Boston balloon to drop the Champs back to the bunch. New York and Boston have been see-sawinff at the front for a week or more, while in Philadelphia the white elephant hasn't been goirv? around fast enough to put the Athletics in the running. Out west Charles Augustus Comiskey Is kneeling at the shrine of Hope, with his toes in four-leaf clover. The Old Roman believes there is good enough stuff in the White Sox to get there, but to achieve ultimate success the Sox will not only be compelled to work like the old Harry themselves, but must receive material aid from De troit, Cleveland and St. Louis in the shape of frequent upsets of the east ern leaders. Cincinnati Enquirer. American League Figures. New York. Sept. 13. American league batting averages show a mark ed and continual decrease in percent ages, even the great leader, Lajoie, suffering with the rest. Only nine men are over the .300 mark, and most of these are dwindling steadily. The base running records are also poor, Harry Bay having the best mark so far. New York leads in team hitting and Cleveland in extra bases. Lajoie is the chief long range hitter of the league. Sudhoff and Dunkle lead the pitch ers in fielding, and Sugden the catch ers. Lachance leads at first base, Robinson at second and Bradley on third. Wallace tops the shortstops, and Robinson the outfielders. Chicago leads in team fielding. Chesbro has the best pitching record of the season, although Smith of Chi cago, has been most successful in pre venting runs. Racing at Chicago. Chicago, Sept. 13. The Excelsior stakes, at one and one-eighth miles, the feature at Hawthorne, was won by Prince Silverwings by a length. The Lady was second and Miss Crawford, the favorite, third. Judge Himes was scratched and Flying Torpedo added. The stake was worth SI. 655 to the win ner. In the third race McGee and Ielagoa furnished an exciting finish. The two hooked up at the final six teenth pole and raced as a team to the wire, where Delagoa won the verdict by the action of a nod. Racing at St. Louis St. Louis. Sept. 13. Commodore, favorite, easily won Delmar's feature. He got off running and was never head ed, winning by a length from Vestry, who was a neck in front of Braden. Barklyite made it three straight by winning the fourth race very easily from Lady Strathmore. Barklyite is In great form at present, and it will take a good horse to beat him. Boston Sticks to Back. . Boston, Sept. 13. A. C. Bucken berger has signed a contract, and will manage the Bostons next season. This action was taken in quick refutation of the story that Fred Tenney would succeed him. Nelson After McGovern. Milwaukee, Sept. 13. Battling Nel son and his manager, Teddy Murphy, have arrived in Milwaukee, having come direct from Butte, Mont., where the battler defeated Herrera on Labor day. Nelson shows a few marks of the twenty round battle, one hand be ing a little damaged and having a "tin ear." Otherwise Nelson appears in fine shape. He will take a rest of aiTownsend and Clark.

Two fa vorites and an outsider won the events at the opening of the fall meeting at the Readville track. The track was slow, owing to a heavy morning rain and the first race was not started un til late in the afternoon. The 2:10 pace was the feature, for after Ben F., the favorite had taken the first heat handily. Peeler Patron came up in the second and won by a head.- The next two were easy for Peeler Patron. Ecstatic, the unbeaten mare of the season, won the 2:06 pace. It was announced that on Wednesday the noted trotting gelding. Major Delmar, would go to beat the world's record without a pacemaker. If he succeeds he will then on Friday trot against the world's record to high wheel sulky. To Play Post-Season Series. Columbus, O., Sept. 13.

On Monday afternoon the Saints drove the last nail into the coffin threw upon it the last clod, and then stuck up a sign board which read as follows: "Here lies Fort Scott, the tall-enders of the Missouri Valley league for 1904." The Giant corpse struggled Just a few times and then stretched its toes. The obsequies read like this; Topeka 7, Fort Scott 3. Abbott and Armstrong Talk it Over. It was all over in the first act. The Celestials made more runs In that round at the swatting stick than the Scottltes in their entire nine. Four chalk marks went down for Topeka. scott took the field first, with Hender son handling the tureen ladle. Big Ben was apparently suffering from tangled wires. His whisking muscles were a little rusty. He hit two men, gave three hits, and Harrington help ed out by making an error at second, where he was playing, vice Downs, sore arm. This combination which Henderson dished out netted a whole quartette to the haloed ones, and Ab bott telephoned home: "The victory is ours." In the fifth. Big Jones fumbled Bevis' grounder. Shlnners sacrificed him onward, and Olson furnished him a single with a cushion seat to ride home on. In the seventh Abbott got to first on Haney's error. Cole's semi-sacrifice to first shipped him to second, and he stole third on Henderson's wild pitch. Then as Bevis was swinging at his third strike, Abbott stole home. Arm strong made a great bluff of quitting the field because the umpire gave the decision to Topeka. But visions of the $50 fine imposed on Dud Risley for pulling the Gasllghters off the dia mond about six weeks ago, made him reconsider the motion and kick it un der the table. Shinners then got his base on balls. stole second and whirled the dusty track on Olson's third hit of the game. Horath Smashes a Bat. The Scottites got one In the second off Olson's error and Henderson's hit. Another came in the fifth. Graves singled himself to first. Then Jones hammered one clear out to the phono graph advertisement, the ball striking near the top of the fence, bounding into . the air, and giving the fans heart disease for fear that it was go ing over. But the horse-hide caromed back into Cole's hands - and Jones only got a chip good for a two-bag ger. Meantime Graves had pitter-pat- tered home. In the ninth Circus Clown Haney raised the ante. He filtered a pretty two-bagger through the left field horizon, went to third on a mean grounder to Olson, and then withered out of sight over the gutta-percha, when the smiling little Swede let one percolate through his shins. Dunn was out oi tne game on ac count of sickness, and Eddie McDill had another chance to show his" value. His work on third was ninety-nine and one-quarter per cent pure. Claude Liming having gone out or business, the player-umpire system, the most unsatisfactory thing on earth. was called Into service.

The ball was practically driven on a straight line. It struck about four Inches from the top of the fence, where the cross-beam and the post come to getser. The ball shot up into tne air for about 15 feet, but bounced back into Cole's hands. On the old Washburn field the ball would have fallen into the scrub elm growth just east of the park. Here is another wad of indignation from the Iola Register: "Iola Is now 42 points ahead of Springfield. Do you suppose there is any way that Shlveley can figure us out of the rag? Nay, nay, Pauline." Lawrence Barr, a Fort Scott amateur, tried out against Leavenworth on last Friday. He gave fourteen bases on balls, and then proceeded to let the Orioles down with seven hits.

The Sedalia Sentinel writes Claude tim ing's obituary in this way as an indicator man in the valley: "Umpire Liming de cisions were also very raw and at ull stages of the contest he gave Topeka the best of it, both on ballff and strikes and also on the bases. His decisions were questioned numerous times and when a close decision was made which went against Topeka either Abbott or Dunn would raise a howl and the 'umps' would become Intimidated and change the decis ion in favor of the visiting club, of which he was a member before being appointed an indicator holder in the Valley league. His decisions were on a par with those made by Collins, whose reputation is well known here, and the spectators became so disgusted with his work that he was hissed by almost everyone who witnessed the game. A spectator at the game loan ed his timepiece to the 'umps' during the progress of the game and after watching the contest for a time went out on the diamond and had Liming turn it over to him for fear that he would get away with the watch as he did with the game."
