The Brook Wins Bayside Steeplechase?Yanks Take Third Game of Red Sox Series
Poor Riding Upsets I Talent at Aqueduct Jockeys' Blunders Keep Several of Best Horses From First Place?Vincent Powers Loses His Whip in the Homestretch The fates seemed to conspire to prevent the best horses from winning in several of the races at the Aqueduct track yesterday. Blunders on the part of the jockeys were made the obstacles in their paths. Buxton, H. Williams, Erickson and Owens made many errors of judgment, but the greatest of these was committed by the first named, who literally tossed away first money in the last race when Porte Drapeau was beaten out in the last two strides by Elmendorf. Jockey Schuttinger, who rode the last winner, received an ovation for his brilliant work?an ovation that is sel? dom paid a jockey except when he rides the favorite home to victory in a hie; handicap. ^ It was ?mis last weck that A. K. Ma- j comber decided to suspend Jockey Loftus, the premier rider of his stable. This was an unfortunate decision for | racegoers, because it eliminated from the racetracks the most capable jockey ?on the American turf to-day. It was also unfortunate for Mr. Macomber, for if Loftus had been on the back of , Porte Drapeau yesterday, even though Loftus would have had to carry over weight, that horse would have got home j? front instead of playing second fid? dle lo Elmendorf. Instead of Loftus the Macorobor colt was intrusted to Buxton, the second pilot of the stable. : Buxton at best has never been rated better than a fifth class rider. He has j ;i poor seat in the saddle and heavy : hands on the reins. His judgment of ; pace is bad, due principally to his im riatier.ee. He is always in a hurry to get home, and thereby finds the slowest path to the winning post. This may ! seem paradoxical, but it is a cold fact, j His impatience causes him to make many errors, and these errors bring about defeats. . Porte Drapeau was made favorite lot ? ??he last race, a race for maidens at one mile. The colt's showing last year and ; in his one race at Belmont Park, plus some fast trials since, was the founds- | lion on which the wise men of the pad dock decided that he was a good invest rttent; accordingly he was heavily backed. Elmendorf, which had been : trying to hide his light in the middle of a numerous bunch of horses in his ? previous effort, but which had fooled none of the racing clan, was second in favor, being heavily played from 6 to1 down to 3 to 1. So far as the contest \ was concerned these two horses had the race between them. Jockey Disregards Ady?ce Jockey Buxton had orders to get off \-ith Porte Drapeau, but not to make , too mu^h use of his early speed. In Stead of listening to this advice of. Trainer W. B. Jennings, Buxton took Porte Drapeau to the front, and at the end of half a mile was five lengths in the lead. Schuttinger, realizing that the pace was? fast, took his time with Elmendorf, and when the homestretch was reached was racing in third posi? tion. , , Button's impatience to get home forced Porte Drapeau to a sprint dur? ing the next quarter of a mile, this took the keen adge away from the favorite, and he was tired and leg weary h furlong from the finish. But, under judicious handling he might still have won had Buxton nursed his fail- ? ing strength for a final rally. Instead he banged and flopped around on his back and lost control of the horses At' this critical stage of the race Schuttinger, riding desperately as though his very life depended on it, brought up Elmendorf with a rush, and making his challenge at the right time just nailed Porte Drapeau on the post. Questionnaire, a ?jolt new to public form, made his first public appearance of the season in the third race, a live furlong rash down the chute. this youngster is a fine looking brown colt by Zeus, dam Frances. He had worked well in private, and because of tne speed that he displayed on several oc? casions he was made the favorite. , The fact that he had an allowance of ! five pounds from Osgood and was meet ine several other youngsters new to the game-Toto, Ceramic and Tapageur? caused many of the players to believe that he would win because of his pri? vate trials. Questionnaire Wins Easily He won easily by nearly two lengths, and his success was such that many trainers predicted that he would play an important part in future stake events. He is owned by Edward Ar? lington, the man who sold Jess Willard a circus. Since that sale Arlington has found that he can race thorough? breds at a profit. He made no secret of the fact that he thought Question? naire would win, and as a public tip had the colt's mane dolled up with ribbons. Questionnaire raced with Toto, the former acting as pacemaker, to the last furlong pole, where Questionnaire drew away and won easily. The fight for the place honors was close. Hurri? cane, another fine looking son of Zeus, got up just in time to nose out Toto for second money. Osgood was fourth, a neck away. Osgood should have been second. Erickron steered him a zig-zag course -the peculiar course that a steamship captain steers his boat when he's try? ing to escape a torpedo. If Erickson had been, capable Osgood would have been second, but could not have beaten the winner. One of the daily mysteries, by cour? tesy called a steeplechase, was decided, with The Brook the winner. The Brook won easily and was much the best horse in the race, despite the fact that he had a jockey in the saddle, by the name of Green, who had never previously ridden a winner. The Brook made practically all the running and won easily, shaking off Sixty-Four after the first turn of the SB RACING AQUEDUCT Every Day SPECIAL FEATURES TO-DAY Union Selling Stakes 2-Mile Steenlechase Mil 4 Otter Thrilling Events FIRST RACE AT 2:50 P.

BHSftaVHHHMHHH Forgot Draft Card, Chick Evans Held By Justice Agents MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., June 26.?On his ar? rival here to-day to participate in an exhibition golf match for the benefit of the Red Cross, Charles (Chick) Evans, national open cham? pion, was taken into custody by agents of the Department of Justice because he was un? able to produce a draft classi? fication card. After a two hours' wait Evans was re? leased when a telegram was received from his draft board stating he had been placed in Class 3. field. Just when Syosset was making a bold bid to catch The Brook in. the homestretch Jockey Vincent Powers tossed away cr dropped his whip. ' Anyhow, he lost it. Syosset finished j second. ' Early Light Is Third Early Light was third, thanks to the fact that the mind of H. Williams, the ! rider of Reddest, was not on the race, j His thoughts were wool gathering. On i Tuesday it was noticeable that Reddest was heavily backed and that H. Will? iams did not keep pulling him back to the rear as he did yesterday. In the betting yesterday Reddest's odds went upward instead of downward. The winning career of Sunflash II was checked by Damrosch in the Wil lard Handicap, distance one mile, the fourth race on the card. Sunflash II was made favorite at even money de? spite the fact that he had two hard races at the Jamaica track last week and that he is a horse that cannot stand this kind of campaigning. Flittergold, with a big pull in the weights, was well supported, but the horse most in demand was Bondage, which had finished second to Cudgel and beaten Omar Khayyam in a race at Pimlico this spring. Bondage ran the best race of the eight contestants, but despite his effort he finished fourth. "Headed for Poorhouse." "Where is Bondage?" said a spec? tator while the race was on. "He is going over the hills to the poor house," said a cynical bystander. The remark was called for by the fact that Bondage had raced on the out? side of his field all the way and nearly came to the outside fence in the home stretch. He lost at least a dozen lengths by this poor guidance. ! He closed rapidly at the finish, but Damrosch, better handled, was able to save so much ground that he came home aldne after Sunflash II and Flit? tergold had raced themselves leg weary during the first seven furlongs. Kewpie O'Neil made a runaway race of the fifth race. He took a big lead early and held it to the finish. Deck mate followed him all the way. The* latter might have won had Midget Humphreys, a stable boy, been capable of handling him when the -ace nar? rowed down to a struggle in the final furlong, but Humphreys was unequal to the occasion and nearly lost second j money, just beating out Ellison by a nose. Ellison was nearly knocked to his knees when Jockey Owens tried to crowd through a small opening on the back stretch. This forced Ellison back to last place. The horse closed up twenty lengths in the run through the home stretch and was fairly running over Kewpie O'Neill and Deckmate at the finish. Says Yellow Golf Ball Has Finally "Arrived" The yellow golf ball has "arrived," according to the "Sporting Goods Sales Journal." It is the outgrowth of the experiments of a Toledo player, who convinced himself and others that on dark days the yellow ball is easier to hit and easier to find after it is hit than either the white or the red ball, which latter long has been available for winter use. As yellow is considered the most I luminous of cors there may be some | thing in the Toledo man's idea.

Mrs. Stuart Green, that same sterling playerwho performed so brilliantly in the recent tournament, at Ardsley, to spring a. real sensation yesterday afternoon in the. second round of the annual Middle States championship lawn tennis tournament on the clay courts of the Orange Lawn Tennis Club at Mountain Station, N.J. Playing in the women's singles, Mrs. Green defeated Miss Mario Wagner, former'national indoor champion, by a score of 7?5, 3?6, 0-0, and nobody who witnessed the match was in any doubt as to who was the superior at the game on this occasion. In the first set. after trailing at 3?5 on games, Mrs. Green raised the power of her deep court driving game until she drew level at 5?all, and then took the last two for the set at 7?5. The remarkable accuracy with which she placed her drives down the sides of the court, always within inches of the line, kept Miss Wagner on the run con? tinually, and this told^its tale in the last set, when the former indoor cham? pion was so distressed from her pre? vious efforts that she fell an easy victim to the Ardsley girl's splendid playing. It,was the prevailing opinion at the beginning of the day's activities that either Miss Wagner or Miss Eleanor Goss would win the tournament in view of the absence of Miss Molla Bjurstedt, and therefore Mrs. Green's victory came in the nature of a surprise, but the result was achieved by the sound? est of lawn tennis, and the winner in? dicated that she will be a dangerous contender for the title-now held uy .Mrs. Eaton, the former Miss Ina Kissel. Miss Pollak Defeats Miss Winn Another stirring match in the wom? en's singles which began -yesterday was produced when Miss Helene Pollak, finalist in the women's national all? comers' at Philadelphia last week, de? feated Miss Caroma Winn at 6?8, 7?5, G?4. Miss Winn, a left-handed player, was "stroking" the ball with great power, and her placements to the lines in the first set caught Miss Pollak out of position frequently enough to give Miss Winn the set, but only after a bitter struggle. Miss Pollak is one of those players < who are never willing to admit defeat until the last point has been played, however, and she went into the second set with even more determination. For ; the remainder of the match it was j largely a case of deep drive pitted [ against deep drive, and at this the na tional finalist was more reliable in the j tight places and a better ''getter," so that by winning the last two sets at ' 7?5 and 6?4 she took the match. ' Men's Singles Reach Semi-Finals | The men's championship singles j reached into the semi-final round, with the brackets occupied, in order, by G. A. L. Dionne, Seichiro Kashio, the Japanese; Lindsay Dunham and Walter Merrill Hall. Dionne gained his place at the ex? pense of Robert P. Bennett by a score of 5?7, 6?8, 6?3 in a match that was resumed where the players left off on Tuesday, each having won a set. Di onne's proverbial steadiness won for him. Kashio advanced by defeating Dr. William Rosenbaum at 6?1. 6?2. The little man from the Far East tamed Rosenbaum's wildness with a soft but carefully controlled assortment of strokes and allowed his opponent to run up an unusual number of errors through his anxiety to "kill" the ball. Dunham eliminated H. W. Holbrook at 6?4, 6?4 in a well played match, mixing up his driving attack by fre? quent sallies to the net. Hall had gained his bracket on the previous day.

Matthew Allen.one of the last of the I old generation of racehorse trainers, ] i died at his home, 416 Fourth Street, j Brooklyn, yesterday. He was eighty- j three years old. "Matt" Allen, known ! to followers of the turf of thirty years , ago as the "kid glove trainer," was] born in Nashville, Tenn. Practically ( his entire life was spent around race- ? tracks. He trained for the late Senator George Hear3t. George Ehret, the ] New York brewer; the late "Diamond | Jim" Brady, Robert R. Keene and sev eral others. He first trained for Sen? ator Hearst in California, but came East with the Senator in 1888. The last year he was with Ehret Allen was the most successful trainer on the American turf, his winnings that year being in the neighborhood of $200,000. ?

Taylor And along came Slim Love and Ruth l was shackled. That's one of the rea- I sons the Yanks won the third battle of the "croocial" series with the Red Sox yesterday afternoon and crept up ' to within one game of the lead. It i was a "slim" chance, indeed, the Hub | ! men had with Love. There is nothing! I quite like a day in June when Love | is concerned. He*was much concern?^] j yesterday and the Hugging men tri- ! umphed by a score of 3 to 1. . Love had a lovely day. His old south- ; paw wing never fluttered so grace- | fully or with b-t!.?r results than i yesterday. Only three safe bingle? fell to the lot of the Red Sox, so graceful and effective was Love on this j June day. But the poets say real love ? is lasting. It is never content with ! ?the present moment, but waxe? stronger and stronger as the game of life goes on until the ninth, or is carried into extra innings. Love was omnipresent yesterday at the Polo Grounds. It could not only pitch, but hit. It was a double from the bat of Slim ir. the second stanza of Love's poern that scored the two runs necessary to win the game and make Love indeed supreme. Underhanded Pitcher Opposes If there is one thing Love v*ill not brook it i- underhanded dealings. Carl Mays, the under-handed, opposed Love on the mound this June day. Mays has compiled a wonderful record with his underhanded way of doing things. Even such an experienced arbiter as Silk O'Loughlin has been put in such a maze by May's iow shoots that he has forgotten the rule that a strike i* the proper decision for an urr.pire only when the ball hurled by the pitcher crosses the plate between the shoulder and the knee. Silk ignored all his in? structions yesterday by pronouncing balls that almost dusted the plate, they were so low. "strikes."' But Love overcame all such handi? caps. One inning was enough to pul the laurel wreath on Love's brow. The second was the inning. "Wallop" Pipr cheered Cupid by singling to centre Ping Bodi? sacrificed, catcher to first and Marsans hit safely to right, bu Pipp was caught between third an< home by Hooper's fine throw. "Wallop" pranced about the path way just long enough to enable Mar sans to reach the far corner. Truel Hannah scoffed at underhanded May and was rewarded by a pass. And thei along came Love and victory. Slir drove the ball on a line between lef and centre and sprawled across the sec ond bag, while Marsans and evei Hannah sped over the platter. It wa a lovely hit and the six thousand howl ers in the stands howled their O K. Yankees Add Another The Yankees added another run i the third frame. With one man ou Baker dropped the ball over Scott' head for a single. Pratt flied to Shea at second. Mays made an overhan toss to first in an endeavor to cate Baker napping, and the ball went pa? Mclnnis and bounced up against th concrete back of first. The Home Ru King pursued his way unmolested t the keystone sack, whence he scored o Pipp's safe smash to right. The Red Sox attempted vainly 1 overthrow Love in the ninth. Aft? Whiteman had skied to Marsans. Bal Ruth, chagrined at the poor showing 1 had made heretofore, took a migh' swipe at the ball, his aim being tl right field stand, with which he is i familiar. But Babe's aim was poor and h blow soared so high that Gilhooley f most had time to get under it. C managed to get one hand on the ba but was unable to hang fast, and t Babe was credited with a double. M Innis singled to right and Ruth reg tered the only run for the visitors.

Ruth banged the ball to Pipp so far from the first sack that Walter was forced to seek assistance in retiring the runner. Love was on the job with all his six feet seven inches, and he had to be, for Pipp's throw was so high that only a Love could have nabbed it. Only one hit was made off Love until the ninth. The youngster Fred Thomas, who is playing third for Harry Frazee until he is summoned b\- Uncle Sam for. the bigger game, dealt this blow in the second inning. It was a clean single to centre. "Wallop" Pipp led the Yanks with the stick, getting two hits in three times at bat. Pipp also displaved some "noodle" by swinging at a wild pitch for his third strike in the sixth. Before Schang could recover the ball Wally was safely perched on first. i For the Bean Eaters the fielding sensation of the afternoon was con? tributed by Thomas in the fifth. The Red Sox infielder gathered in a terrific clout from the bat of Del Pratt with his bare hand and got his man at first. Pratt got his revjnge for this rob? bery in the sixth, when he knocked down a hot liner sent on its way by Ruth. The smash hurled Pratt off his balance, but he recovered in time to toss Babe out. Price of Basebalis To Be Raised July 1 Baseballs at $2, which was predicted early thie year, will become a reality July 1. according to the "Sporting Goods Sales Journal," which says that though the increase applies only to what is known as the Official League ball made by nearly all manufacturers the prices of the cheaper balls almost certainly will be doubled before the end of the year. The difficulty in obtaining horsehide and wool and the labor stringency has hit the baseball makers hard. Dodgers Drop Third Straight To the Phillies Three Bunched Hits Off Mar quard Supply Lone Run of Game PHILADELPHIA. June ??6. - Thj Brooklyn Dodgers' pitching act-, RiCn. t'.rd (Rube) Marquard, fai^<? them to? day, and the visiting nine met fa third straight defeat before the Phil? lies by a score of I to 0. The Ruae was bested in a twirling duel with El? mer Jacobs, who recently came to the local club from Pittsburgh ?n ex? change for J. Erskine Mayer, another twirler. Marquard's downfall occurred in th? second inning. when Philadelphia bunched three of its six hits. Pearce, the local boy who joined the club ser eral days ago, accounted for the win? ning run with a single. Jacobs'* pitching was deceptive, holding the Dodgers to six scattered hits, of which three were collected by Jimmy John? ston, the lead-off man. In only ore inning, the first, did the Brooklyn team threaten to scor<>. John? ston singled, and when Cravath fum? bled the ball the Brooklyn player went to second. Jacobs tossed out Olson, Johnston going to thrid. Jacobs also held Johnston on third on Wheat's in? field out, and Myers ended matters by flying out to Cravath. As it turned out, Johnston was the only Dodger player to reach second or third base. Luderus started the Quakers on the road to victory in the second, when he sped out an infield hit. Marquard soon nipped Luderus off first base, but Cravath was passed. Meuse! followed with a double to right, sending Gabby ro third, and Pearce came through with his single, sending Cravath home. Pearce stole second, but Marquard had easy victims in the next two bats? men. Only two Phillies reached sec? ond in the remaining innings. Daubert opened the Superbas* ninth 'with a single, but the next three bat? ters hit out easy fly balls. The score: nnoOKXYN (if. T..) iPHTi-ADKLPHIA (N. L. < ab r li o a e ah r h <> - ?:?

Navy Yard Marines to Play Mine?la Aviator* When service baseball teams meet on the diamond a good game is assured, and especially will this be true when the aviators from Mine?la oppose the/ marines from the Brooklyn Navy Yuta at Ebbets field Saturday afternoon. The entire proceeds will be turned over to the National Aeronautics Committee, which is furnishing athletic equipment for our boys. Both combinations pride themselves that they have former college and pro? fessional players on their teams. The aviators' strength can be judged from their victory last week over the Pel ham Bay naval training station, which had, with the exception of the Boston Navy Yard, defeated every team it had met this season.
