For five or six innings the game was a prett- one and the fans got all they wanted. The Mets were the first to core. In the third inning Goes of the voluminous proportions hit one to cen ter field. White bunted and Arnold threw to Ragan to catch Herr Wilhelm Edward Goes at second, but Stevie obligingl" let go of the ball, and both men were safe. Bandy bunted and Goes-was thrown out at third through the agency of Mr. Arnold. With two men on and one out. Johnny Pendry hit a single and White pranced home with the only tally of the entire after noon for the Mets. With Oklahoma City with the big gest end of the stick the game dragged along until the sixth inning, when the Champs opened up for business. Davis hit safe and was sacrificed to second by Olson. Abbott fanned but Ragan hit one to right field and Davis scored. Ragan went out in an attempt to show Jack Henry how to run bases. This tied the score. But things were not to be in a tied-ui state very long. In the seventh inning Colonel Runkel was the first gentleman for Mr. Bandy to contend with. Runkel hit a single over second base off the "Laughing Gallery" and Wooley bunt ed. Bandy threw the ball to - second but m&de a poor peg and Runkel; waa safe. Erwin also tried the hunting game with the result that Bandy threw the ball to Pendry to get Runkel a lit tle bit after Mr. Runkel reached the station and the bases were well oc cupied. At this Juncture Price, the new pitcher who took Spec's place, made good by hitting over the Infield for one base, scoring Runkel and Wooley. Arnold helped out in the good cause by hitting another single and Erwin trotted home. Red Davis cleaned up the bases with a triple and scored on Olson's single. Jt was at this psychological moment that Man ager McFarland sent McCIintock into the box. Abbott popped up a fly to White and Ragan hit Into a double play retiring the side. McCIintock showed signs of losing control in the eighth. With one down, Wooley hit safe and then McCIintock filled the bases by walking both Erwin and Price. This ended it. for McFar land went in himself and Arnold hit into a double play. 1 The feature of the game was the Stevie Presents Jack Henry With a Hit. er stuck up his' mlt only to knock the ball into Olson's waiting hands. Olson touched Goes and threw White out at first. Oklahoma City's double plays were all of the fast and snappy order. The score: . TOPEKA AB. R. 3 Player Davis, rf. ......

"I will not . sell Elberfeld for $50,000,'' and make that statement as strong as you like." ; These were the decisive remarks made by Owner Frank Farrell of the New York American club yesterday. The statement was made In Mr. Farrell's office in answer to the .question, "Will you trade Elberfeld if you think you can strengthen the "Yankees by so do ing?" A report came from Washington that Manager McAleer of the St. Louis Browns was on his way to New York with the object of completing a deal whereby he could secure Elberfeld in exchange for Pitcher Glade and Out fielder Hemphill. There is no douht'thnt such a trade would be advantageous to the St. Louis club, and possibly to the Yankee, for 1 Pitcher Glade is a player of whom I WHERE THEY" PLAY TOMORROW: Topeka at Oklahoma City. .

According to notices which have appeared in the press of the Western league at various times during the past ten days, presioent -Xip" O'Neill of the Western league has been ab senting himself from that circuit for some time and has been working on plans for the formation of an eight circuit next season, ho is planning to take in Topeka and although he was aereatea once is working as hard 1 as ever. At the conclusion of tonight's game every team In the league has made two trips around the circuit and has played-- . two series on the home grounds., with every other team in the league.. J-orty-two games still remain on the schedule for each team, twen ty-one. at , home, and twenty-one on the road. Nearly every team, how ever, is behind a game or two. To peka has four games to be played off. Two of these are with Springfield on tne latter s grounds. One game is still lert for the locals at Joplin and an other for the locals on the home grounds with the Miners. This leaves but twenty-two games to be played on the local grounds and one series of three games each with every team in tne league. Captain Spec Hurlburt was out of yesterday's game on account of sick ness. Price, the new southpaw twirl- er, took his place in the center garden end behaved well. His hitting started the bombardment in the seventh in ning. Eckman, who umpired In this cir cuit until a few days ago when he quit his Job, is now 'working in the Iowa State league.- This leaves but Guthrie, O Connell. . Jacobs and Mc- Irnis on the staff of President Shively. President Shively has announced his intentions of scouting through the Kansas State league for a new umpire some time within the present week. Shively says that- five are needed and he intends to keep an extra man on the staff for the rest of the season. Arnold's score yesterday was the first score which the popular young pitcher has -made this year. Hd wever, Itf he can pitch like -he did yesterday and as he has done on several previous occasions his hatting will be overlooked. Ragan's courtesy yesterday allowed Jack Henry- to seoure a hit in the ninth inning after two men were out. The ball was a grounder to shortstop and Kagan made no effort to field it. Manager Charles McFarland returned yesterday from St. Louis . and took charge of the Mets. He went in in the ninth inning to stop the slaughter of j his pitchers. In all probability he will work today.- He brought a couple of players with him from St. Louis. Bill Rapps of the Mets, is now play ing second base and is putting up a good game. . A few days ago he was playing first base while Gill was off sick nursing a boll on his arm.. Bill is equally good in the infield or outfield. The team leaves tonight for Oklaho ma City. They will visit Oklahoma City, Wichita, Springfield, Webb City and Leavenworth before returning home. The next game on the home grounds will be two weeks from Sat urday when a three game series with. the Webb City team is opened. In the course of an interview in the Springfield Republican, President Shively makes the following statement In regard to Umpire Guthrie: .1 Know that there is much kicking against Guthrie.",: said . President Shively. "but he . is the . best-umphe in the associa tion ..He. has . missed but one game. since he was put to work and this was caused by a .belated train. He is not a.
