$85,000 Snob II., WWskaway and Others Measure Strides With
Champion in Carlton Stakos Exterminator-Grey Lag Duel
Ranks With Best Races Ever Seen.
By Vincent Troanor.
1 tORVlCH, "the horse with bad
I VI legs." which Jumped from a
4 BO to 1 shot in his first start
on through a sensational season with
out defeat as a two-year-old, and
over the threshold of his three-year-old
career as tho winner of the Ken
tucky Derby, strips to racing form
to-day at Aqueduot for what horse
men regurd as the first real defense
of his championship laurels. To the
turf world It Is what a bout between
Jack Dempsey and Harry Wills
would mean to pugilism, only among
horses there Is no color line.
Carrying 118 pounds In (he Carlton
Handicap, Morvleh will measure
strides with the best horses of his
own age he has ben called upon to
meet so far. He will be going a mile
against speed, with Snob II. an
ISS.OOO horse, which, after the
'Withers, and before the Belmont,
where he performed so disappoint
ingly, was bailed as a certain con
queror of the Block colt.
Whlskaway, a speedy son of Whisk
Broom II., the mile and a quarter
two minute horse, owned by Harry
Payne Whitney, will be In the field.
Whlskaway made his three-year-old
debut at Belmont Park only Wednes
day last, and towroped his field for a
Mile In 1.37 2-6. There's no telling
how good he Is.
June Grass, the colt which led Snob
II. In the Withers for a half mile, and
then crumpled under the tatter's
steam engine pace, will also be a
tartar. Only a week ago yesterday
June Grass galloped to a mile victory
In 1.J8 with Prudish, winner or the
Coaching Club's Oaks behind him.
As tr to lend size to the field Horo
logue and William A. will go too,
making it a horse race In which It will
be necessary for -Morvlch to get a
contending position and run all the
way to hold It.
It will be no mere exhibition or trial
such as the Dempsey of the turf has
gone through on the local tracks since
his Kentucky triumph. And let It be
said right here, to-day's field repre
sents more class than the ordinary
lot In front of which Morvlch only
had to gallop In the Derby.
In other words, Morvlch Is In for a
real test In the Carlton, and If he
comes out of It victorious his claim
to the three-year-old championship
will be pretty firmly established. He
will need only to win the Kentucky
Special at a mile and a quarter next
Saturday at Latonla to clnoh it.
There has been criticism of Mor
vlch's recent trials, such as there
were during his preparation for the
Derby, but these were not worrying
his trainer and developer, Fred' Bur
lew, nor his owner, Benjamin Block.
A Burlew said early to-day, "Mor
vlch will start and win unless I drop
dead before post time."
Notwithstanding Burlew's confi
dence, rallblrds say the Block colt
hasn't worked as a champion should.
His recent mils In 1.S9, they point
out, wasn't Impressive. He slowed
up, as if Urlng toward the end, and
It took him It seconds to negotiate
the last eighth. However, only yes
leroay morning, fiiorvicn stepped a
quarter In 12 seconds, and tho next
eighth in 24, which Is ample evi
dence cf his well known early foot.
From this It might be judged that
nothing should outrun tho champion
this afternoon. The only question
then Is, will something else outstay
him?
Billy Garth, the veteran trainer of
Snob II, wasn't making any wild pro
dictions for 1Mb $85,000 colt tp-day,
but he said he Is trained to run a fast
mile, and ho doesn't care If It's
against Morvlch or anybody else.
Garth Is satisfied tlmt Snob II. did
not run his race In the Belmont. He
wants him to run his Withers mile of
1.35 t-D this afternoon, that's nil
We'll say It will bo a horse race, no
matter who wins.
Jim Hhevlln, President of tho
Queens County Jockey Club, with
half a century of equina battles In his
memory, says Hxtermlnator's victory
In yesterday's Brooklyn over Grey
ung was tno greatest liorso race
oer run. Many agree with lilm
while others hold out for the Man
o' Wur-John V. Grler duel as tho
daddy of them all. But bo that ns
may, certainly no nice In the writer's
memory ift aroused such a tumult
ous demonstration.
When thousands of ordinarily cool
headed c.tlsens go through a series
of Indescribthle contortions, with ac
companylng atrsplttlng noise, us

a stride for stride sttrtcli liittle. when

for old Exterminator, und then when
the finish Is reached and Extorml
ruitor goes past the upright wire
head in front, ana the deafening
tumult begins again, only this time
ten times louder, you'll know that
something unusual In the way of
horse racing has lccn ei-en.
It was a mile and tn eighth race
but as a contest It developed only
at the head of the stretch, when thn
equine driftwood got out of tho way
leaving Qroy Lag and Exterminator
to provide the thrills.
Grey Lag had been carried ver
wide by Polly Ann, the paeemake
up to that stage, and this piece uf
racing fortune enabled Exterminator
to save a lot of valuable ground b
Sdnnlng the rail. It was as if Grey
Iac conceded two lengths to his

Grey Lag bore out a bit, while John-
son on the rail, never lost an Inch
with the popular old gelding.
At the eighth pole they were on
even terms, and from there homo It
was a blood-tingling battle. Game
ness didn't enter Into It. Both horses
and both Jockeys were game. Ex

the best position. Tho raclna- luck.

Such cheering As Exterminator
ambled back to tho stewards' stand,
prooauiy never was heard on a race
track. Tho old liorso with almost
human expression, seemed to know he
had dono something out of the ordi
nary. As he was being unsaddled he
ahook his Intelligent head un mid
down, then looked up to the head of
the stretch as If recalling where the
battle had started. Ho then turned
his eyes past the finish line up to
the place where his Jockey pulled lilm
up, All the while ho seemed to lw
saying:
"Well. I beat him, didn't I? Where
Is that horse, Morvlch 7"
Shouldering 135 pounds, and with
out even the fleck of the whin, the
seven-year-old gelding had won prob
ably the greatest race of his career.
which to date represents purses of
213,000 to the owner, Willis Sharpo
Kilmer. A few more such victories
and ho will top Man o' War's earn
ings and stand at the head of the
greatest money winners of tho Amer

Big Gap in the Ages
Of Semi-Finalists in
Fox Hills Golf Tourney
That the Sport of the Links Is the Only One in Which Years Are
Not a Fatal Handioap Is Proved by To-Day's Programme,
Which Brings Two Veterans and Two Youngsters Together.
By William Abbott.
THK age limit In the game of golf
can't be seen with a telescope.
It Is about tho only Hport In
which tho number of years Is not a
fatal handicap. In tournaments on the
links you'ro very apt to see a brilliant
youngster matching strokes with a
grayhead, although It's steadily be
coming more difficult for tho old boys
to hang on In tho hunt for prizes.
An illustration how disparity of
years will occur In golf Is supplted by
th aeml-ilnul to-dny In the annual
Fox Hills tournament. At the ton of
the list of four survivors is Laddie
McMahon, a Junior at Yule. At the
bottom Is F. H. Brooke, whose age
would Just about bar him from any
other strenuous pastime. Thero Is
lso a big gap In the years of A. C.
Grcgson and W. H. Follott, the other
seml-flnnllsts.
Despite his years F. II. Brooke
eliminated one of tho most dangerous
contestants when ho defeated J. B.
Jnftruy, Minnesota champion, in Die
second round. It was u tough argu
ment all tho way, the veteran win
ning on tho homo green when ho
holed a tricky downhill putt of about
fifteen feot, tho most welcome shot of
tho mutch. Brooke only won by a
margin of ono hole, but that was suf
ficient Brooke's place In tho semi
finals Is nil the more notablo because
he barely qualified, the eteran com
peting In a threc-corncird plus -off for
one position In tho first sixteen.
W. H. Follctt, now chief favorite
for Ilr.it prize, enme through only
after two hectic battle. In the sec
ond round the Fox Hills entry de
feated L. Vynno of Chicago, who was
one of a small group of top notcher
uliooters from the corn belt.
This was a case of give and take.
Follett hnd a medal Hcoro of 7g and
Vynne 800. The scramble for holes
was n dingdong nfalr ull the way
Follett anil his trusty corncob havlnp

tho Westerner made a costly blundei
In missing his second shot.
In the first round Follett dlspnsoi'

and both theso Fox Hills stars won

urally this was tho foi t tiro contest.
Both took turns showing tho way
first Perry and then Follott, especially
when his opponent bernmo :mdl
tangled up In a network of traps on
the seventh and needed six stroke."
while Follctt holed out on his third
attempt.
At tho turn Follett hnd tho narrov
ltB.i of one, but this was evened at
the tenth. The match wop all square
at the thirteenth, but from here on

weakness enabling tho careful play

Victor Linhart
Wins Bike Race
Behind Motors
Fate played a trump hand In the one
hour motor paced race last night at
the New Tork Velodrome when Jules
Mlquel had to bow to defeat because
his mech'anlcsl pacer, with Eddie Boot
at the throttle, went bad during the
early stages of the match. Llnart won
tho race. Wiley was second. Mlquel
third and the Italian, Columbatto, last.
Before another motor pacer could
take Us place on the track Mlquel had
lost three laps to his nearest competi
tors, Victor Llnart. the Belgian, and
Cleorge Wiley, the American. Punctures
put Columbatto, Italy's entrant, out ot
the race and destroyed whatever
chances he had of winning.
Although the bronxed Mlquel had lost
two laps to Llnart and Wiley, he was
not downhearted. Behind his new me
chanical pacer he pushed down on his
pedals with all his might and soon re
gained one of his lost laps. He electri
fied the crowd when he almost got an
other, but at this point Llnart and
Wiley sprinted and refused to be passed
a second time.
GOLF DRAWING PLAYERS
FROM TENNIS COURTS
CLEVELAND. O., Juno 17. Jolt
is rapidly drawing men and women
from the hard-clay courts to the green
fairways, according to the caretaker
of one of Cleveland's largest tennla
clubs.
"Two years ago this club had 220
members," the veteran caretaker Bald.
"This season the enrollment IS only
168. I am certain that golf Is the
reason.
Tennis is not tho only game to feel
the Inroads of golf; others, too, are
suffering from ILi popularity. Vision
aries of tho game see Its ultimate
growth reaching out until every ham

see the time when farm boys will
be able to play the game on their
town courses, where now baseball and
horseshoe pitching furnish the bulk

BOUTS.
Champs Win Nine Games
From Western Invaders,
Cubs Won Honors in One
Pirates End Stay To-Day and
Cardinals Open Series
To-Morrov.
By Bozeman Bulger.
WITH the Western Invaders In
rull retreat the Giants are
Bleeping woll these week-end
nights. Even If the Pirates, mighty
low in their minds to-day, should
wield their outlnss with more aplomb
In the final combat thero Is no occa
sion for alarm. The crisis was really
passed In the slaughter of tho Reds
some days ago. What wo win now
Is velvet.
So far our champs have licked the
Invaders In nine games out of ten.
The rest can't htirt much. The Cuhs
still have the honor of winning the
only game. The Beds lost four and
tho Pirates already have dropped
Fur. The Cardinals arrive fr their
showing to-morrow. They will be
the last to come out of the West.
Fans are beginning to wonder If all
that alarm about the spurt of those
Reds and Cubs and Pirates was not
a sort of vicious propaganda to glvo
us a scare.
A Pittsburgh camp follower even
advanced the suggestion last night
that the Qlants had better have a
care about winning too many ball
games In a row or they'd kill all In
terest In the race.
Cleorge dlbson, big chief of the
Pirates, sits around these mornings
engrossed In profound meditation.
This Is Hoyt'a second defeat of the
Western trip. He waB credited wltu
tho loss of the fourth game In Chi
cago against the Whlto Sox after ho
relieved Sam Jones. Ho has won ono
gamo on the trip West the socond
ono In St. Louis, last Sunday.
Aftor getting a two-run lead on the
tigers and batting Howard Ehmke off
the mound, the Hugmen faltered ana
were beaten out by the Detroit team
by the soore of 9 to i-
Cobb, as usual, pulled some clever
strategy In replacing Ehmke with
Dauss, and the latter held the Yan
kees well In hand for the remaining
seven lnntngs he was on the mound.
Tho reason for the Yankees losing
their jfrlp In the race In the younger
circuit can be traced directly to the
great playing of some of the Western
clubs, such aB St. Louis and the
Tigers, and their own team game.
Ruth got his second hit In tho present
series ycstenlay. The enforced idle
ness of Wally Schang with an Injured
leg Is more serious than the club
officials care to reveal. He Is limping
badly and hit for Scott yesterday, but
oould not run tho bnBcs after httttng
safely. Hoffmann caught most of the
game yesterday. He Ib a slight Un
provemcnt over Al Devormer, but that
Ines not signify much.
The Yankees got thirteen hits off
Khmke and Dauss, but only scored
lour runs on them, denoting clever
Iiieusivo worn on uif pun or wiu
Tlgetts and also stupid work by the
Hugmen on the offense.

George always has cherished an Idea
that youth will be served. On that
theory he pumped the old pirate ship
full of young blood and sprinkled It
around freely. And now see what
has happened.
In the third encounter at the Polo
Grounds youth after youth was hurled
against our gray and venerable
champs. They waved the cullass
freely but with every wave a Giant
runner slid over the pan. That old
cutlass seemed of tin -a boy's play
thing. But George Is not through.
He has one more youngster left In
the bag and will shake him out for
tho final fray to-day. It's hard to
got a notion out of Qtbson's head.
This afternoon George proposes to
take the blanket off John Dewey Mor
rison, said to be the doggonedest
curve-ball pitcher that ever put a
kink In the old pill. According to
Pittsburgh players John Dewey is not
only very young but whin he gets
worked up he has a curve that knots
up like a pretzel.
This does not annoy the Giants.
They would admire a crack at a
pretzel rlcht now.
Yesterday Gibson gave us Whltey
Glnzner, a very young man who led
the league records In pitching last
year, despite his lack of years. HV
was thrown at our champs with sor
of a flourish and wound up.
"Bloole!" Captain Bancroft hit thn
ball right back at him for a single.
Oroh, Meusel nnd Kcllcy also took
a crack at the best Mr. Ginzner had
and two runs were In before tho dust
had settled. That would have won
the ball game but It was not nearly
enough to fatten batting nvcrnges and
to cure the youngster. They went
right on, firing at will.
In the second Inning JesB Barnes
yes, the pitcher took a swing from
his shoe strings and poked the ball
against the fence for three bases
Bancroft laughed at this and then
took a similar belt at the old onion
himself. That was enough for GIa.
ner. Youth had been served, but
harshly.
Gibson, ever a theorist, now trots
out Chief Moses Yellowhorse, the only
remaining Indian In baseball, very
young and tender. Chief Yellowhors
is but twenty-one but big enough to
be forty. But the Pawnee brave,
even with his warm Oklahoma biood
stirred to fighting pitch, could not
check the paleface champs. They
whaled Into the noble redskin until
he also went away from thero. Then
they tried a Mr. Earnhardt. It was
all the same.
Those Giants have simply gone hoi;
wild In the hitting department.
Tho Pirates also have a very young
man catching these days, a Mr. Gooch.
When It comes to shooting tho pill
around tho bases and hitting an!
everything like that Goooh Is the
goods, Like other youths, though,
ho gets excited.
In tho fifth Inning, for Instance,
there were three Giants on the bases
when a short fly was hit to tho out
field. All ot a sudden the Giants
started running wild and tho Pirates
started throwing wilder. Mr. Gooch.
the main target, was scrambling in
the dirt and dropping the ball and
throwing It back to one base and
another until the Giants had two runs
In at no cost whatsoever to them
selves. This violent disturbance around the
plate was not entirely the fault of
young Gooch, however. Not one of
the throws to him was good. But
he wns one busy boy.
The young blood of the pitching
Pirates, though, misaeB the steady old
Schmidt, who nso to Ruldo them over
tho rough spots. Schmidt would not
sign a coutinct, or something like
thnt, this year. Gibson, therefore,
must and does depend on youth.
THE ROBINS STEAL
CARDS' STUFF AND
BAT OUT VICTORY
Brooklyns' Own Clouting Cir-1
cus Gets Busy and Routs
St. Louis Team.
By Joseph Gordon.
THE St. Louis Cardinals, a base
ball team which is known,,
throughout the National n
Laegue circuit as the Clouting Circus, ,
may, before the day Is over, ask Com?j
mlssloner Landls's Committee ori.
Ethics to look Into the circumstances,;?
surrounding the third game of the,,
current sefles between the above men.
tloned team and the Brooklyn Rob-
Ins. A sweeping investigation will In
all likelihood be the result.
The chief question upon which the
committee will have to decide ls.i
whether one team can steal another
team's stuff with Impunity. The ques.
tlon Is a very delicate one. It will re.
quire a great deal of careful connlder-o
atlon before it can be fully determined i
whether or not the Robins wet acU"
lng within their legal rights when
they pulled the heavy clouting stunt .
for which the Cards have been so
heavily advertised. Some experts '
claim that It was a transgression of
rights. Some say It was not. And
there the case rests.
Not that the Cardinals mind losing
the game. It was Just the prlnclplolJJ
of the thing. Especially considering
that the Robins are contemplating
very strongly continuing the stunt
this afternoon. Thev already havp
two games to their credit In this series
and "Dutoh" Ruether is ready to step '
in in an effort to make it three out of
four. "Dutch" has been saved by
Robinson for the final contest, and if
ino locals succeed in winning n iney
move up a notch In the standing or
the clubs, and perhaps two notches.
depending upon the result of to-day's-Giants-Pirates
game. ,
And thus the Western Invasion .
which had been looked upon with so
much apprehension, is beginning to
assume a much milder aspect. Thu
worst port of It Is over and so far
It has been more of a dress parada
than an Invasion. The Robins have)
given them all as good as they re
ceived and In some cases a little bet- ,
ter. Out of the ten games they have
played against Western teams they
have taken Ave. And they are still
In tho first division.
Tho latest victory' was due to tho
great work of Burleigh Grimes In thu
pitchers' box; to the players who all"
contributed with timely hits; to Ivy
Olson, who played a fine pme all ,
short and above all, to Manager Rob
inson, whose Instructions to the men'
played a leading rolo In the game
Tho Robins had a great day all
around.
Clarenco Mitchell, who Is now
ternatlng with Ray Bchmandt at
first, had a perfect day both In field
and at bat. Out of rtvo times up hof
made two singles, a double, drew a
base on balls and sacrificed In a run.
Tom Griffith, who Is alternating wlfih
Bert Griffith In right field, made two
singles, two runs and a base on balls
out of five times up. All Wheal f
could do yesterday was to get three)
hlta and three runs out of five trlpa '
to the plate. But he made up for It
with tho bleacherltes by telling them
that It was Topercer batting for,
Lavan In the sixth.
Rogers Hornsby, the strong man of
the Clouting Circus, was the only,
one of the troupe who was able to do
his stuff. He laced out two singled
In tho early Innings and In the eighth"
he lifted the ball, a brand new one,
over the right field wall for his fif
teenth home run (old English for cir
cuit clout) of the season. But In tha
fifth, with a man on second, tho ,
Btrong man struck out
Tho final score was 12 to 2. The)
Robins made seventeen hits for a.
total of twenty bases.
