"t didn't figure on more thn 11 thrw out of five from the ritates, nnd thought the Chlcagos would take thrc .IraK'lit from Boston. One thing thrft helped us In Pittsburg was the way Ames and Wllt.e Mood up for us as far as thi went. Thn again, tho nplrlt of the New Vork team has been much better the last ten days, and the four rittsbuig victories til have a still further stimulating effect." Mctlraw was urked about Mathewson, whether his pitching of Ute could be re garded as encouraging since he has lost his last fout. r "Oh, .Matty ' He's all right," replied the manager. "He's been losing, but two of the games he lost were booted awav by ejrors In the outfleld. He'd have 'won both of them easy with good support." Chief Meers went home from Pitts burg for 11 rest. He Is much In need of It, and won't put on the spangles again until Thursday. Wilson will do the catch ing In tho two game liio, nnd Wilson, being handy with th bat. makes a good suhstltutK for Meyers. Th Giants were In a jubilant mood whn thoy pulled out of Pittsburg. 'J he ii"wj from Chicago that the Cubs hnd lost didn't depress them, oud they joined In a song which went lIKc this: "Somebody rise Is getting it. getting It He'll get his where 1 got iiiln." The Giants' record In th West this time Is right victories and four defeats, pointing sttongly to much Improved play Ing since leaving hom-. Iist week the Giants won sAvcn games nnd lost two, and no fault can be found with that rate of speed. It was a hard and critical week, and th I'olo men came through tn gallant style. Moreover, nnd what In more to the point, they gained on the Cubs while tho latter were righting In their own stronghold The (Hants went Into St. Louis last Sunday morning with a four and n half game lead and closed the week with 11 six game Had. It wasn't through anv fall down by the Cubs e!thr that the'v Improved their pos'tlon, but by their own good work and gameness So far nn can be foreseen, the Glnnts will have it comparatively easy ahead for a while. They haw a series of gams with the Jlrooklyns and Ilostons. Game for game there Hn't much choice between what Is ahead for tho Giants and Cubs, except that the Giants havo more games at home. Tho New Yorks have sixteen more games with first division teams, three with Chicago, three with Pittsburg and ten with Philadelphia. Tin- Cubs have fourteen more games with Hist division clubs three with -Sw York, four with Philadelphia and seven with Pittsburg. Th Giants have twenty four more games with second division In cumbents and the Cubs tvventy-rlve. Klght of these games for New York are with the Hostons, whereas the Cubs have eight with Cincinnati. On what has taken place so far this ser.ion It looks as If the eight Chicago-Cincinnati battles would make more trouble for the Cubs than the eight New York-Boston tngasements will make for the Giants. McGraw expects to have a talk while heie wl'j. Garry Herrmann relatUe tn the pioposed around the world tour of the Giants and a picked team. The National Commission has not yet given its consent to tho piojrct Theie have been some ob stacles In the way of tho trip, but McGraw hopes to get them cleared away this week.

WOLVERTON TO REMAIN IN CHARGE OF HILLMEN President Farrell to Sign Him lo Another Contract for Next Yenr. DESEltVIXO OF THE CHANCE l'ltlcky Fight Affninst Big Odds Wins Admlrntion of His Present Employer. Harry Wolverton will be retained as manager of the Highlanders for next year. This positive Information was ob tained by Tub Sun man yesterday fiom n thoroughly reliable sourco. Wolverton Is not under contract for the season of 1913, but he will be signed by President Karrell as soon as the time arrives to talk business. When Wolverton put hl signature on the New York Americans' paper last win ter tho term of his engagement called for one year not three as It has been widely stated. The club officials naturally did not feel like sewing themselves up to a longer contract when, as a matter of fact, Wolverton never had handled a major league team and was engaged sim ply as nn experiment. Considering the unusual string of acci dents which have befallen the lllghlandcts this year, Wolverton cannot be said to hae had a fair chance to demonstiate his managerial skill. I'resldent Farrell Is not Inclined to blamo him for any of the team's shortcomings, Wolverton In the face of the most discouraging conditions has dis played courage and nerve, qualities that have won the admiration of his employer. Wolverton has fought gamely to build up his shatteied forces and now that the Highlanders have begun lo show somu winning ability tho manager feels that his perseverance has been rewarded. It wasn't the manager's fault that Harry Woltcr broke his leg, that Cree's wrist was fractured, that Chase was seriously 111 for two mouths, that Sweeney didn't re port until May. that thr pitchers tvlth one or two exceptions fell down hard and that Barl Gardner and Coxy Dolan failed absolutely In attempting to coser second and third bases respectively With the pitching department in shape and also strengthened by the addition of Keating. Davis and Green, with a new second baseman, who will be landed In a few das, with Sterrctt used behind tho bat to help out Sweeney, with McMillan r fixture at short field and the return of Cree and Wolter to the outfield, where Lellelt. Daniels and llartzell will figure meanwhile, Wolverton flrtnly believes that 1 he will have a good ball team next year President Karrell Is ready to spend money for whatever material Is neces sary, but that will not require an abnor mal outlay I'addock will remain on third base, where he Is learning rapidly. He Is a natural hitter and that means a grrat . doal. Mr. Karrell has been angling for a I well known second baseman for several weeks, but the plaer's Identity si far has , not been learned, though numerous guesses havo ten made. Ir the deal goes through without a hitch, it Is said, the Hilltop Infield will look like ready money. Wolverton's Ideas In select ing new timber have been carried out and for that reason ne will to kept In charge of affairs for another ear, If not longer. Pitcher Romer, a left hander, who has attracted attention as a member of the New York Police team, may turn profes sional. He has been dickering with the Hilltop management, also with the Chi cago White Sox. In the uniform of the Highlanders he practised several days on the Hill last week. Then Matty Mc Intyre of the White Sox asked him to put on Chicago spangles and work out with I Callahan's men. Romer will not sign a major league contract until he ie celves a guaranteed salary for a year, it Is said In that case he will if. sign from the Police Department. So far he has been unable to secure his own terms, chiefly tocause the big clubs want to see him pitch a few games against major league hitters first. The Giants play the Reds In Cincinnati to-day and to-morrow, while the Cubs are tackling the Brookhns tn Chicago. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, thej Brooklyns will try out the Giants at tho Polo Grounds, while the St Louis Cardl-' rials ate playing In the Windy City at the same time. The Clevelands begin 1 their last series ut American League) Park this afternoon. Hany Davis has corralled some new players, but still relies upon Napoleon Lojole, Joe Jackson. Vean Gregg and other stars. Jack Lellvelt of the Rochesters will probably Join the Highlanders to-day, and will play one of tho outfield positions regularly. Wol verton's men play In Washington Thurs day. Krlday and Saturday, and then come back to meet the conquering Boston Red Sox In a double header Labor Day after noon at the Polo Grounds. Opinions are freely expressed bv base ball wlseacies that Toronto will beat Rochester out of the International League pennant. At least nair 11 dozen games between those teams must be played be fore the season ends, tho first clash com Ing In Rochester on Labor Day. Gansel's men win be on the firing line to a finish. That much Is certain. Walter Johnson, who has pitched six teen consecutive victories for the Wash lngtons this year, announces that he Is going out after the world's record of nineteen straight, held Jointly by Rube Marquard and Tim Kcefe. This Is Johnson's record, which wipes out the former notch of fourteen straight, made ny .lack Chcsbro in 1004. Game. Dale. Opponent. .Ml. II.

RENAULT Phone Columbus 8171 214 West 65th Street PLAYING ON THE ROAD Most of he Biff League Teams Have Done Equally Well Away as at Home. THE GIANTS' GOOD .RECORD In Lead in Number of Victories Won Abroad Spectacu lar Jack Murray. The Giants have won more games on the road than they have at home, and In point of successes on foreign fields have the best record to date of any team In either league Strength of that sort may or may not point to it successful rush for pennant honors during tho remaining weeks of the race. If it means that they play better ball away than at home then there Is no particular alluring prospect In tho fast that most of their games to come are at home. But If It Is con strued to mean that they ought to do all the better at homo for having toen so strong on the road then the pennant out look is all the better. The Giants under McQraw always have been a strong road team, and this year havo actually played their best ball away from home. Some of their play has been as good at the Polo Grounds as elsewhere, but the home work hasn't been us consistent as the work on the road the former has been moie streaky. It has been easy enough to beat Boston and Brooklyn and Philadelphia and Cincin nati at Ihe Polo Grounds, but against the Cubs, Pirates and even the Cardinals the Giants on their own stronghold have done only Indifferently well. This time, however, the members of the team are looking forward confidently to a strong windup and a consistent display of strength on the home field. They are not paying any attention to the strutting braggadocio of the Cubs, and you can't convince them that they aren't a better ball team than the Cubs. On the strength of what lies ahead of them they believe that even If the Chlcagos should catch them they would outstay and outplay the people from Chicago tn the exacting dash for the wire. They are conducting their campaign with more dignity and less hur rah than the Cubs, but they believe they are a better team. As to which team in the National League proves the tost on the road It lies between the Giants and Cubs. The latter haven't won as many away from home as the champions, out they haven't played as many. The Giants have won 44 games on the road and lost 17. The Cubs have won SS and lost 20. Tho weakest team In the league, the Bostons, have won 1 anch games and lost 42. Still those sixteen were half of Boston's total victories, so the propor tion of foreign victories was good for a tallend team. The Giants had won nine more games away from homo than at home and the Cubs two mote. As a matter of fact. In this question of strength abroad and at homo the fig ures go to show that nowadays there 's practically no niaterl.il advantage In be ing at home, with one exception the St. Louis Club eery team In the Na tional League has done about as well. If not better, away than at horfie. The Cardinal, up Into the last week In Au gust, had won only IS of their So vic tories on the load. r'nnlllnna In , V. . . 1 1 - .., .-i,,,ruiM ucacue are much the same. For the moat nart nl.v. Ing at home has been of little or no ad santage. It would appear that the moral support which n home team gets exerts no actual Influence In bringing victories and that touring teams are hardened to tho wear and tear of travel. The Highlanders are the only club of the eight which has been appreciably stronger at home, and by the same token noticeably weaker on the road. Of their first 40 victories onlv 14 were won away fiom home. That left -6 won at home nearly twice as many.
