Ty Cobb. the hard 1 hitting outfielder of
the Detroit Timers, wbo led both major
leagues in hatting last year, Is quoted as
saving in commenting on the work of his
team this season: "Unless you get The best
of the breaks you can't -win pennants."
Everything else, being equal, Cobb no doubt
is rijrht. as the luck of the carp* is a fac-
BaT that cannot be overlooked. The fact re
mains, however, that the team which is
-playing good baseball with a confidence
born of success or a. apart* bom of the
courape to overcome difficulties is the team.
as a rule upon which the Goddess of Luck
•miles Things have been breaking well
for the Philadelphia Athletics and the New
York Tankees this year, and for the Chi
cago Cubs. baa. In several games, but that
only poes to emphasize the fact that thaw
teams have been playing the kind of base
hail that wins, by forcing opportunities or
which they have l*e*n Quick to take- ad
vantage.
"When an error is made that costs a game,
when a batsman lilts the ball fairly with
men on bases only to see It go right into
the hands of some opposing fielder, when a
circus catch is made that cuts off runs and
robs a man of a three-bajrger or a homer,
things are ' "breaking" badly for the team
"that Baaaßro— art least, that is Ty Cobb's
version of the poo.l or had breaks In base
ball. There Is something In this. too, but
■•■ the long run Incidents of this kind are
evened tip through a playntr season of 154
games or more, and it is the bad breaks,
«t least for the, hojne team, that are mag-
I Mad and th© p.^.i breaks that are quickly
forgotten. As said before, there is much
luck in baseball, as In aB sports, but the
team that is playing a heady, steady and
consistent pame is the team that wins a
pennant. Cobb winds up by saying that he
looks bmmi Connie Mack's team from rhii
adelrhia.flnisb on top this year. It is rather
♦ariy to che up hope for the Detroit Tigers.
mho have, won three American League pen
nants in a row, and Cobb. like, so many
others, is counting without the Yankees.
Those who vrore reviling the Giants only
three short weeks ago have, changed their
tune, and are now shouting their praises
and predicting all sorts of happy things
about winning the National League pen-
Bert For inconsistency commend me to the
■aaaji baseball "fan." Kverybody loves
a winner, it Is true, and nothing succeeds
like success, but it does seem that loyalty
to a baseball team is strained, and strained
through a mighty fine screen. There are
exceptions, perhaps, as the loyalty of the
Brooklyn "fans" in the face of much dis
couraKemer.t has become proverbial, but In
the long run there is no such thing as loy
aJty to a baseball team unless it is winning.
The Giants have boon going along in a.
way to lend encouragement, and while an
other Flump may come and games must be
lost, there if every reason to be optimlstlo
that the team will be fighting along in the
van when October rolls round and the race
is nearlug Its end. Nine games in succes
sion is something to boast of, and with the
men playing as they are and the pitchers
jroinj? well it seems only reasonable to look
for th^ rev< nee against St. Louis that four
defeats In a low out West make so desira
ble, if not imperative. Roger Bresnahan
and h;5 rret\ will be at the Polo Grounds
to-day, for four games, following which the
Chicago Cubs must be entertained and
jiulled "fT the top rang of the ladder, where
they ..are now perched, if s_<-h a thing Is
possible. The Giants pulled the Pirates off
that same top rune in Pittsburgh and his
tory may repeat itself with the Cubs. The
Giants vould look well died there them-
Feives.
The Yankees lost their first came of the
TVestexn T rip in Chicago, and the Calamity
Janes were quick to accept it as an ill
omen, even though "U'arhon pitched a two
hit game. Hard and consistent playing has
now put them at the head of the league, a
position which they thoroughly deserve-
Their career in the enemy's country will
b«r. •watched with even greater interest.
The team will be In St. Louis to-day for a
four-cam series, jumping from there to
face the Detroit Tigers, who are likely to
Vi» more formidable on their own ground
than they were in the East. Judging by the
way they have been treating the Philadel
phia Athletics.
Seven straight for Brooklyn. It begins to
look as if Bill Dahlen had discovered the
hoodoo that has been lurking so long In the
midst of a team that measures up well on
paper, but ha? failed to play up to expecta
tions. It is something of a record to win
th'«»«» straight games from the world's
rhaniplons, even if the Pirates are in the
midst cf a Plump that spells disaster.
The distressing a.eeident at Gravesend on
Thursday. In -which Fred Langan, the
Jockey, lost Ms life, was cause for deep
rejrret- I knew the boy as ■ quiet, well
•mannered little fellow, and admired him
for hip fearlessness and skill In riding,
•which was becoming more apparent every
day. The life of a jockey is not a bed of
roses and the boys oftentimes take des
perate chances and Jeopardize their own
lives and those of their fellows In a desire
to -win. but in this case It was an accident
pure and pimple, ■Warwick, the. first horse
to go down, swerving against the rail.
While none the less regrettable, It hi cause,
for congratulation that the accident was
cot caused by the. foul riding of one of the
other Jockeys. Horses as c rule take good
*-are of themselves while racing, and fatal
accidents, fortunately, are. few and far be
tween, but It is hoped that the other boys
will take the untimely drath of little Lan
p. and the cutting off of a bright future
ac a race rider to heart and study to
avoid the rough and foul riding which has
marred many races In the past.
Powers, the yvkr-y. no doubt was pun
lhhed enough by losing a race with House
maid In th* Criterion Stakes last Tuesday
through carelessness or over-confidence
•without being subjected to a fine or sus
pension, but it strikes me that the Btew
axds of the meeting neglected their full
duty in rot calling him to account. The
f-tewards, to all appearances, were among
th<* few who considered the filly more to
blame tliß3i th© boy. In my opinion It was
a roost ill Judged ride, that would have
done discredit to a stable boy. Powers
ought CO have i**-n sitting still when driv
ing his mount around the turn and Powers
ought to have been driving his mount
when sitting still in the last sixteenth.
Th« late Pittsburg Phil once «aid in sub
rUince that the quality of a hors» was
proven by his ability to make hi." own pace
«nd make it so fast in one furlong or
linother as to kill off ail opposition, while
earrviii* his own s eed to tie end. Such a
J.orse is Fitz Herbert, the winner of the
Brooklyn Handicap on Tuesday. Like the
unbeaten Colin, there Is do telling Just how
rood a horse the son of Ethelbert-Moran
utic If- and It strikes me that Mr. Hildreth
it, not far wrong in pronouncing: him one
of the greatest thorough ever foaled
cr raced in this or any other country. This
is fcaid, too, with £uch great horses iv
mind as Hanover. Hamburg. Domino, Irish
Lad. Colin and others which are known to
turf fame.
Yale complicated the college baseball sit
uation somewhat on Saturday by beating
Princeton in the first game between the
ancient rivals. Yale has had a season that.
ud to the present, only charitable observers
could describe as even Indifferent, but. so
far as sentiment at New Haven is con
cerned, victories over Princeton and Har
vard would atone for any number of de
f»atfi, and toe followers of the Blue will
look forward to the remaining games as a
result of Saturday's victory with a good
oeal more confidence. Yale's' victory over
Princeton stood out among the week's
games, of course, but Harvard's smashing
defeat of the Cornell nine, regarded as
one. of the best that has gone out from
Haaia in years, helps Harvard's standing
materially. Cornell has made a good show
ing this year, and the defeat by a score of
s to 1 on Saturday was a bitter pill to
swallow. The Harvard team developed a
battine streak that has been far from evi
dent in other games and drove the Cornell
pitchers to cover in short order. Cottrell.
of Syracuse, pitched a remarkable mid-
A\rrk pa*ne against Columbia, shutting out
the local tram without the semblance, of a
hit. But b« fell before Pennsylvania on
Saturday, and the Quakers found him as
easy to hit as if he had never possessed
class. Overwork is the only explanation
for the affair at Philadelphia that those
who saw him mow the Columbia batters
iawa wiil be disposed to accept Columbia,
having started well. Is finishing in poor
style, and defeats by Yale, Syracuse and
Trinity in the last three games played
make it hard for the Blue and White
ttam to be ranked very high.
A year ago there were plenty to say that
Max Behr won the New Jersey golf cham
ptonsbtp because Jerome D. Travers. wnc.
had held It for two years, had gone to
Groat Britain seeking new worlds to con
quer. But Travers stayed home this year
and reached the final round of the tourna
ment for the title at the Essex County
course. And Behr still holds tho cham
pionship. Truth to tell, neithar man played
brilliant golf in the match that settled
matters on Saturday. The play was dose
«=nrvuifh. to be sure, and Interesting for that
reason, but it could have added little to
the reputation of either contestant. An
earlier tournament of the, week, that
among the women for the metropolitan
■championship, brought forth a new and
brCliajit aspirant for the leading honors
of the pame In Miss LJUian F. Hyde, of
Bay Shore. In the final round at Montclair
Miss Hyde, although she was playing in
her second tournament, gave Miss Julia K.
Mix, old in competitive experience, a sound
h.-atirg, and eh* had previously defeated
Mis. S. F. Lefferts and. in an extra hole
match. Mrs. T. H. Polhemus. Miss Hyde
showed a wonderfully fine long gam<> and a
mastery of all the club*> in her bag save the
patter. Her work on the greens was all
that marred her game, in fact, and with a
little good coaohinp in that department she
arm prove herself a formidable contestant
• national championship.
The astounding news that this country
may a:!nw the challenge for the Dwight F.
I 'avis international cup to go by default
t'r.'s v«ir has again attracted attention to
th« Gutted States National T.awn Tennis
Association. Certainly the eleventh hour
position taken by the Americans has mys
tified the English players, who had made
all preparations toward holding the inter
national ties in that country, according to
the arrangements practically concluded.
The rews of the cable message sent to
Knpland by Dr. James Dwlght. president
of the national association, has stirred the
players throughout the country. Of course.
Dr. r> wight has made an explanation that
appears straightforward enough, yet it
fails to explain, when 1 am informed on the
host authority that Beals C. Wright,
Maarica E. McEangtiHa, H. Long
and possibly the. brilliant young Pennsyl
vanian. Wallace F. Johnson, ttand ready
to play for America. Is it possible, as has
bf-en mggestod. that some lawn tennis
players are jealous of the'.r prestige and so
refuse to have it dimmed by others, even
if they will not play themselves? It begins
;o look as if such was the case. England
sent a team to this country last year for
the preliminary ties, and In my opinion was
not fairly treated, inasmuch as our strong
est players were pitt?d against the in
vaders and a weaker team s»mt to Aus
tralia. In all fairness The preliminary
matches should be playM in England this
pear.
The rhll'i<-s are at war among them
selves, it would seem. >'o wonder they
have fallen so low. whon only a short time
ago they wore leading the league race with
colors flying. "A boaas divided." etc.. leads

Chicago. June s.— The Chicago White Sox
■were unable to put a dent In the unbroken
row of triumphs which Russell Ford, the
Yankee Ditcher, has accumulated this sea
son, and the youngster made it seven
straight to-day, shutting out the home team
by a score of 2to 0. This victory put New
York in first place, as Philadelohla lost the
third straight game to Detroit.
The Gotham Hilltop hero did not pltcb
as good baseball as Frank Smith, but he
had fine support, coupled with a little time
j lv hitting, which won the game.
I The came started off to be an exact dv
i Dlicate. of Saturday's. Hemphill opened with
a einirle and Wolter followed with another,
beating out a slow bounder between third
and short. Chases out advanced the run
ners to third and second, respectively. The
situation was a duplication of that on tne
day before, when Blackburne came to the
rescue with his marvellous stab of T.aportes
hit. This time Laporte took pains not to
get the ball anywhere near Lena. Instead
he raited a sacrifice fly high and far away
to left field, and Hemphill scored easily on

JOHNSON OUSTS LinLE
Police Help Champion-Manager
Threatens to Stop Fight.
San Francisco. June s.— An open warfare
between Jack Johnson and George Little,
his manager, started Saturday night and 1
wound ud this afternoon, when Johnson
told Little that he was discharged. Little
says that lie has an ironclad contract with
Johnson until May. 1911, and he threatens
trouble. He says that unless the differ
ences are settled he will stop the fight on
July 4.
In spite of the fact that he was dis
charged Little insisted on remaining at the
door to take the tickets. Not until John
son, backed by a squad of city policemen,
appeared did Little depart. According to
Johnson the trouble arose because Little
became Jealous of Sig Hart.
"Hart is one of my friends," paid John
son. "I've taken him out automobiling with
me. and Little did not like it. Then ho
threatened to whip Hart, and I told him
that was the end. I don't want any more
to do with him. He has not any contract
that he can hold me to."
The following statement was Issued by
Little:
"I have a contract with Johnson that
binds him to Rive me 25 T>er cent of nls
promts, and I am authorized to make 11
contracts for any boxing matches, theatri
cal shows or anything of the like. The
$10,000 that we put up is my money. I will
manaee Johnson or there will be no fight,
and if I withdraw they can take that for
fiijaL"
This trouble delayed the boxing m the
afternoon, but Johnson went through with
an unusually hard programme, which In
cluded three rounds with George Cotton
and Marty Cutler and two with Dave Mills.
At the conclusion of his work Johnson
weighed for the newspaper men. tipping- the
scales at 213 pounds, the lowest he has
weighed since his training started.
Ben Lomond. CaL, June 5.— J. J. Jeffries
1 performed to-day before five hundred spec
tators in his training camp gymnasium.
Three rounds of speedy sparring with Joe
Choynskl set the crowd wild with delight-
The pace was 6O fast that It is doubtful
whether Choynski could have gone many
more rounds. Jeffries came out of it smil
ingly. He was in rare good humor and
boxed with his face to the crowd bo they
could get a good look at htm. The gym
nasium programme included rope skipping,
bag punching, shadow boxing and a short
tug at the chest weights.
Another little sparring match, not on the
programme, was the feature of the day.
The principals were Jim Corbett and
Choynski, who had been enemies since
their last fight. in ISS9. until they met at
Ben Lomond recently. Now they are
cronieß.

Columbus. Ohio, June 4.— George I*
Rockwell, agent for a Western land com
pany: Foster Copeland, bank president,
and H. M. Blair, secretary of the Younjr
Men's Christian Association, with other
business and professional men, have

one million postcards, bearing the slogan:
"Stop that fight; this Is the twentieth
century."
Cards will be sent out Monday in batches
of one hundred to ten thousand representa
tive men throughout the United States,
accompanied by circular letters asserting
that the proposed Jeffries-Johnson contest
will not contribute to good will or good
citizenship and that (Jovernor Gillett's ac
tion so far has been characterized by
"lethargy, indifference and inaction."
The ten thousand recipients will be asked
to distribute the cards and have them
mailed to Gillett. The assistance of min

Matches for Griscom Cup To Be
Held This Week.
Intercity matches for the Griscom Cup.
the annual championship tournament of the
Women's Eastern Golf Association and the
Invitation tournament of the Wykagyl
Country Club offer rival f.->lf attractions
this week. The women Mill monopolize the
whole work at the Huntingdon Valley
Country Club, near Philadelphia, while the
nearby Wykapyl meeting is carded for.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
A start will be made to-day at Hunting
don Valley with a match between the
Philadelphia and Massachusetts teams. Ho*
long since Mrs. Caleb F. Fox won the
championship title of the Philadelphia
"Women's Golf Association, and as Hunt
ingdon Valley is her home course, this golf
matron, who sprang into prominence more
than ten years ago through the defeat of
Aliss Beatrix Hoyt. will doubtless be seen
at her best. Philadelphia and Boston will
play for the right to challenge the metro
politan team, the present holder of the
Griscom Cup.
Although the Boston team is always
formidable, it probably will meet a stub
born opponent in the Philadelphia combina
tion. Purtheimore. the New England team
will be short of practice. With the addi
tion of Miss I* B. Hyde, the new champion,
the metropolitan team will be as strong, if
not stronger, than a year ago. Mrs. C. T.

so has Miss Maud K. Wetmore. The prob

SHEPPARD WINS MILE RUN
Champion Romps to the Tape
Victor by Fifteen Yards.
ABEL KIVIAT IS SECOND
Heavy Track and Rain Impede
Runners in Monument Games
at Celtic Park.
Under the most adverse running condi
tions imaginable Melvin W. Sheppard. the
champion middle distance runner of the
Irish-American Athletic flub, won the
Monument Mile at the annual games of
the Monument Athletic Club and Brick
layers' Union. No. 37, at Celtic Park. Long
Island City, yesterday afternoon. Abel R.
Kiviat, the Junior metropolitan champion,
also of the Irish-American Club, finished
fifteen yards behind Sheppard, while Frank
X. Riley. a clubmate. ran a surprisingly
strong race by finishing third, five yards
in Kiviafs wake.
Harry Gissing, of the New York Athletic
Club, who was expected to be a strong
contender for the prize, ran a most disap
pointing race, trailing the field throughout
and quitting the contest when fifty yards
behind Sheppard at the finish. The time
of 4 minutes 30 seconds was a most cred
itable performance under the circam
etances. On a clear day the time would
have undoubtedly been ten seconds faster
and probably more.
The second effort of the Monument pro
moters to stage their games under a clear
sky waa balked, as a steady drizzle fell all
afternoon, but nevertheless three thousand
persons braved the inclement weather and
sought out every dry nook and corner
where a glimpse of the contests could be
had. The lone; journey by train from To
mn»o and the gruelling victory won by
Sheppard ovrr W. C Paull. of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania, and Jack Tait, the
Canadian champion, and several other
champions, across the border on Saturday
night apparently had little effect on Shep
pard. He finished in a strong condition.
Of the seven original entrants only the
four above named faced the starter, with
Kiviat on the pole, Riley next, Sheppard
third and Gissing on the outside. At the
outset the runners fell in behind Kiviat in
the order named and moved along at a
brisk pace, tiie latter turning the quarter
mile post in 60 1-5 seconds.
The s:une order was maintained at the
fcalf-milT post, the runners slackening their
speed somewhat, Kiviat being timed in 2
minutes 11 1-5 seconds. Within flfiftcen
yards of the three-quarter-mile post Shep
pard made the awaited spurt, and went on
the outside and sped past Kiviat, the for
mer's time being 3 minutes 19 2-5 seconds.
Sheppard then let out a link and Riley
moved into the second place. While Shep
pard was rapidly going away, Riley and
Kiviat had a battle royal for possession of
second place. On the turn into the stretch
the diminutive Kiviat passed Riley, and
maintained the place to the tape.
Robert Cloughen, another Celtic Park
athlete, who also invaded the Canadian
border* on Saturday and defeated Robert
Kerr. the Canadian champion, easily won
the 110-yard scratch sprint, after getting
off from a good start. He defeated J. J.
Archer, a clubmate, by a yard In 11 2-5
seconds.
William J. Kramer, the 'cross-country
champion of the Acorn Athletic Association,
starting from scratch, led hone a large
field in the three-mile run after running a
strong contest. He gradually worked his
way through the field, assuming the lead it
the two-and-a-half-mlle mark, when he
held it to the end, to win by ten yards from
Frank Masterson. of the Mohawks, In the
good time of 15 minutes 6 4-6 seconds.
Masterson pushed Kramer In the last half
mile, but on the first turn on the back
stretch the Acorn runner left his deter
mined rival.
R. T. Edwards, of the Winged Foot club,
won a close victory in the 300-yard run,
nosing out V. Casey, of the St. Malachy
Athletic Club at the tape. Despite the
BOggjr ground. Dan Ahearn, the Jumping
frog of the Irish-American club, made the
splendid leap of 4S feet 11% inches in the
running two hops and a jump contest.
The summaries follow :

COAST MARIE SHOWS FORM
Defeats Princess Direct Handily
in Heats on Speedway.
James A. Murphy* little black pacing
maro Coast Marl*. 2:11%. defeated Thomas
B. Leahy's Princess Direct. 2:14«4. in ]
straight heats yesterday morning: at Speed
way Park. There has been much friendly
rivalry between the two owners and each
felt convinced that he had the better mare.
The Princess was going so well yesterday
that many horsemen present felt sure that
when the two aicain measured strides Prin
cess Direct would take the measure of
her erstwhile conqueror.
The first heat was one of the closest
races ever seen on the drive. The two
little black mares were travelling side by
side, looking more like a pair In double
harness than contestants in a race, but In
the last eighth Coast Marie drew ahead
the fraction of an Inch and passed the post
with her nose just ahead of her opponent's.
Princess Direct broke In the next heat as
the two neared the post, and Mr. Murphy's
mar*» won by several lenpths.
When Mr. Leahy sent his mare down the
stretch again it was with J. F. Russell's
brown trotter Luke, and here the mare
scored an easy victory. If De Witt C
Flanagan's bay mare Klnstress. 2:10^.
had been up to her usual form she would
have given Charles Weiland's Inner Guard,
2:OS»i. a good race yesterday, but as It
was the gelding had things pretty much
his own way. In two straight heats he
finished several lengths ahead of the mare.
RAIN nOES NOT BALK ROWERS
Harlem Oarsmen Out in Force for
Their Daily Practice.
The strong northeast wind and steady
downoour of yesterday did not prevent th»
oarsmen along the Harlem River from In
dulging la their dally practice. A large
delegation from the various clubs was out.
The Metropolitan. Bohemian and Harlem
rowing clubs had the largest representation.
The Harlem boated a junior double,
manned by Walter Manley. bow. and Jack
Hughes, stroke; a senior double and an in
termediate double. The Junior eight-oared
shell which Captain Jack Nagle Intends to
enter In the Long Island Regatta caused
considerable comment along • 'Scullers'
Row." The crew, which averages well
over 160 pounds to the man, is displaying
remarkable form. Despite the rough,
choppy water th^re was hardly a splash
on the recovery and the boat kept on an
even keel throughout.
All flags were at halfmast along the river
In reverence of the memory of Charley
Stelnkampf. of the Nonpareil Rowing Club,
who died after a short illness of typhoid
fever on Fri.lav afternoon. Steinkampf
had been identified with the sport for over
ton years and waa stroke of tbe famous
Nonpareil four-oared crew the members
of which wnn four races at the national
regatta in 1906. Stelnkampf acted as clerk
of the course In the Memorial Day regatta.
John Fltzpatrick. former champion sculler
of England, is coaching the Nautilus Boat
Club, of Bath Beach, for the Long Island
regatta, which will be hold this year on the
Harlem River on July 9.
