THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL MONDAY EVENING, JULY 15, 1907. OdVN-THEY GO. JYichita's Winning Streak Is ; Rudely Interrupted. Topeka Takes Two Games in - ; Succession. YOTOG IS DRIVEN OUT. The Tall Sycamore Meets llis Waterloo at Last. "Curly" Speer the Other Tictim ".""' of Champions. Before a large crowd, a gathering of over Jive thousand people which is by far the largest ever recorded at an exhibition of the national game in this ity. the Topeka team wrested a vic tory from the Jobbers yesterday af ternoon by a score of 7 to 3. Cyrus Young III, who is considered as the best righthanded twirler In the Western association, was on the rub ber for the Wichita team and for two innings held the locals safe. But in the third his trouble commenced when n. X3hsi& mi. " - ...... for three bases and at regular inter- j vats -following hits were easy to se cure off Young and most of them were tor extra bases and always came in rich, rosy like clusters. In the seventh h retired to the bench for the first ti mo tVlfjt VPBr ' Jack Halla performed on the mound for the Topeka Champs. His pitching was of his usual good order. Ha was not so stingy with his hits but always managed to let his opponents connect when their hitting did the least damage. He pitched a steady rams throughout and was especially hard to solve when the Jobbers toad men on bases. . For awhile It looked as though the topeka team was on the program for a. severe walloping. During the first two innings neither side scored and it looked like a pitcher's battle was on the bill for the afternoon. In the third, Kelly made things look danger ous by hitting for one base. This was the- first hit of the game. Young's field ers choice cut Kelly off at second, Mi lan hit a liner Just inside of the fool line which rolled out and under a bunch of buggies which were crowded close to the foul line and the hit went for a home run bringing in Young and Milan. Becker fanned and Hetling doubled to center field. It looked as though Wichita would win the game In this Inning. Bayless singled to right field and Hetling attempted to score but Davis threw the ball to the plate In time to catch Hetling. The ball was rlayed by Halla and was one of the prettiest pieces of work seen during " i . , , X X"l A V ( a as th afternoon, xnis enu prospects of winning the game as Halla was very tight after that and his delivery could not be touched when the visitors were occupying the bases. . In the last half of the third, how ever, the 'WpeKS DUncn dim with some hits and errors on the part ' of the- Jobbers shoved three men actoss. Halla lit on Young for a triple to right center and scored when Law ler singled over the infield. Hurlburt singled to centerneia nui djic lowed the ball to get away from him and Lawler scored, Hurlburt going to third. A long fly to Milan by Abbott cored Hurlburt and Topeka was one run to the good. Young steadied down for an inning but in the fifth the locals took another whack at his offerings and the tabu lation of the locals was increased enough to put the game away without question. Lawler singled through Hol land and went to second on Captain Hurlburt's sacrifice hit. A three bag ger by Abbott to right center scored Lawler. Abbott was leading off third and Young threw to catch him but the throw was a low one and trickled through Hetllng's pins to the bleach ers and Abbott came home. - In the seventh Inning Topeka took hc third and final batting rally and Increased the score to such an extent that the visitors gave up all hope of winning. After Halla had been an easy out, J.awler secured a two base hit to right field and scored when Hurlburt duplicated the feat. Abbott sent a red hot single to right field and Hurlburt scored the final run of the game. Ab bott stole second but the next two bat ters were easy outs. Hendrix succeeded Youirg in the eighth inning and allowed but three men to face him. In the ninth inning Wichita scored tme run. Bayless first man up singled. Captain Holland sent in Nichols a right handed hitter to bat In his place but Nick proved an easy out. A passed ball s.nt Bayless to third and he scored on Weaver's Infield out. Annis stood up I U tll7 I'1"" ...... ... I . " ... pver In the groove and the game was ended. The feature of the game was Davis' .throw in the third which caught Het ling at the plate. After Becker had hit safe fn the eighth a fast doubleplay was Marted by Olson which retired the side. Halla made a grandstand stop of a hot pne' from Kelly's bat in the seventh 'which looked like a safe one. For the visitors Bayless" catch in right center .

Speers wild pitch with th hn v?s full in the eighth inning gave Topeka the aeciaing run m a hard fought and loose ly played game Saturday. Speer was wild throughout the whole game and every run made by the Topeka team came tnrough his wildness, two runs be ing scored on walks and another on hitting the batter with a pitched ball. Arnold on the other hand pitched a good game., A large crowd attended the game and excitement was Intense throughout tiio whole contest. As the game was not settled until the last half of the eighth inning the rooting of the fans never stopped and although there was plenty or noiienng tne crowds were very or derly. Wichita was the first to score. After Bayless had been retired In the second inning Holland singled and Weaver foi lowed with a hit for three bases to right center. Captain Jack Holland scored and Weaver followed suit when Annis singled through second base. In the fourth a combination of errors and wildness on Speer's part tied the score for the local aggregation. Runkel first up walked. Erwin tried to bunt but after two attempts Speer tried to slip one over which hit Erwin in the ribs. Runkel was caught between second and third but reached third when Hetling dropped Kelly s throw. The ball got past Hetling and Runkel scored, Erwin going to second. A fielder's choice by Lawler failed to get any runner and Erwin reached third. Tonneman hit saf'j and scored Erwin. . In the eighth Speer started off bad by walking Rttnkel. Erwin popped up afoul to Weaver. Lawler hit safe through Kelly's slow fielding and Runkel reach ed second. Tonneman walked, filling the basts. Arnold fanned. After two strikes were called on Davis Speer threw the ball wide and Runkel trotted homo. Lawler also reached home on the wild heave but Umpire Jacobs decided that Lawler had not come in contact , with third base and called him out. Poor base running by the locals lost several chances of tielng up the game and cheated the Champs out of three runs. Runkel and Lawler were the offenders In this regard. The score TOPEKA. Plaver AB.

The Oklahoma City papers say that Arlo Scoggins, captain of the Oklahoma City Western Association ball team, will retire from the diamond at the close of the season. Recently a scout from the Southern league looked the Mets over and asked Manager McFarland what the chances were to get Scoggins. Scog gins is quoted as saying that he Is not enthusiastic over the change, as he is playing his last season in baseball. Scoggins played three years with the Iola team and is now In his third year with the Oklahoma City bunch. His fielding has been better than ever, but he is weak this season on hitting. Tomorrow afternoon Dick Cooley and his Louisville club open in Kansas City. Cooley will probably try to get to To peka before the locals leave tomorrow night for Webb City, where they play three games. Morning Lickspittle. The above is a fair sample of the baseball "news" published in the lickspittle. The fact is that tho Louisville team does not reach Kansas City until Wednesday the day that Topeka opens In Webb City. Mighty is the truth. . Harry Huston who caught for Leaven worth last season under the name of Harry Corbln and who was drafted by Pittsburg has been sold to the McKees port team of which John Menefee, the old Chicago and Kansas City pitcher, is manager. Huston was not fast enough for the big leagues and like many others who get tryouts was relegated to the brush. . Nebraska Parrots Disappeared. Only a few naturalists and early territorial settlers know that parrots were once numerous in Nebraska. Fifty years ago they were still seen along the Missouri river in southeast ern Nebraska, but disappeared very suddenly after the first settlement in that reglonj . The Nebraska parrot was the Carolina paroque (Cornus Caro lina.) It had a beautiful green and yellow plumage, so striking In appear ance as to instantly- arrest the atten tion of the early hunter. . Besides this the birds gathered In large flocks, and were so exceedingly tame and simple that the whole flock was easily killed. Add to this that tha birds were fine eating and their feath ers attractive trophies of the hunt and the fate of the Nebraska parrot was assured. Nebraska State Journal. Meet me at the Chautauqua.
