.jccea In Ma new venture, talked of the
!,.vr low sustained by tho National
Lewue. but made It plain that they did
. ihiik that Mr. Tener could do Jus
tice to both of the Job ho had been
hoUinS since the beginning of tho -ear,
However, the local club owners com
t'etely Iffnored the reason Mr. Tener
rate at the motive actuating; h(s resle--ration.
It wilt be recalled thafy Tener
note ef his Inability to continue rep
rMenthi the National League, on the
National Commission because of the rea
tm. well known to them (the Scott
Ferry case), and wanted to get out so as
ti glt the league time to choose a sue
cesser who rould represent the league on
the commission If It saw fit. Tener'a tet
ter of resignation treated entirely with
this American League controversy, but
no mention of It was made tn the letter
of acceptance signed by Hempstead, Eb
btti and Hiker, which follows :
In compliance with your letter of
Aurust 6, submitted to alt National
League club presidents, this committee
his been authorized to accept your r Ig
nition to take effect at once.
"In taking wis onion we reel mat
we hate sustained n heavy loss, and In
accepting your resignation we -plan to
mure you of our highest esteem and
rive you our very best wishes ln jour
r.ew field of endeavor.
"We rallied, as you did, that it was
Ir-possblie tor you to successfully con
duct both of these large enterprises, as
their character Is so vastly different
and requires so much detail."
The committee also announced that
the league's affairs will be conducted by
Secretary John A. Heydler until the an
nual meeting of the league In December.
Heydler will have complete authority,
and will represent the National Leaguo
i!on during the world's series as he did
In 1909. He then was serving as presi
dent pro tern, ot the league, following
the death of Harry Pullianl.

Leaders nit Robertson Hnrd
and Profit by Brooklyn's
nr GEoncin n. cndkiiwoou.
Acting as If they were suffering from
shell shock or the blind staggers, the
Podgers tottered around Bbbets Field
yesterday and blew the final game of tho
aeries to the Cubs by a score of S to 1,
allowing the Windy City crew'lo got an
even break.
Brooklyn got away to a two run lead
In tho opening frame but tossed It
right away In the second. After that'
the Podgers never were In the hunt
They accorded Davy Robertson a de
fence ,as flimsy as tissue paper and as
shaky as the Jelly gran'ma used to
make. In addition the Cubs hammered
Robertson hither and yon.
Olson starred tn the comedy of er
rors, with Johnston, Daubert nnd Miller
also playing loading roles. Ivy com
mitted two misdemeanors. Ono of.them
followed a boot by Johnston ln ' the
eighth and let a run filter across the
platter. Daubert made an almost ex-,
ous&ble muff of Hendrtx's fly back of
Drat tn the second, allowing one Chicago
count and making possible another.
Miller's trended flip to catch Taskert
rtteallng ln the fifth planted Dodle on
third. , whence he scored on a triple
I by. Merkle that was played badly by
Ilrndrlx Tightens Vp. '
The Cubs harvested twelve blngles oft
Robertson. Before the second Inning
was over Davo had been found for Ave
lnsles and a double. On account of to
day's double header with the Phillies
Manacer Robinson had no relief pitcher
to sparo and so Davy had to stay In
and take his medicine. The only earned
run scored by the Cubs after the second
was the count put across In the ninth.
The other runs were ushered In on the
error platter.
Claudo Hendrlx, who has been some
what of a Jinx to tli a Dodgers this sea
son, kept the nine Brooklyn hits well
scattered. He was found for ono earned
run In ths first and another was made
with the aid of a wild throw by Kllllfer.
Hendrlx was effective after the first
and turnod the Podgers back scoreless.
Brooklyn planted two men on the has
socks with none down ln the second, but
Hendrlx tightened and bowled over Mil
ler, Robertson and Johnston, fanning
the latter.
Kllllfer'a IIeae Help.
Johnston greeted Hendrlx with a
double to right In the first and took
third when Olson planted a safety ln
right centre. After Daubert popped to
Hollocher Jimmy and Ivy flashed a
double steal, Johnston scoring. Wheat
swung1 at 4t wild pitch for the third
strike and reached first with the aid of
a bad throw by Kllllfer, Olson scoring.
Buck tried for second and was out,

rick and Zelder singled, Ilollle's belt
registering Fred. Kllllfer doubled to
right, registering Pick nnd putting Ze'.
dcr on third, whence he scorrd on
Daubert's muff of Hendrlx's twisting fly
back of first. Doolan recovered from
his boot of Flack's grounder In time to
throw Max out at first and absolve him
self from an error, but too late to shut
off Olllifer at the plate, which would
have been done had the ball been han
dled perfectly Robertson threw out
In ths fifth Paskert singled, stole sec
ond, took third on Miller's wild throw
and scored on Merkle's triple. With
two down ln the eighth Pick's single,
Johnston's error, Zelder's pass, a double
steal and a wild throw by Olson gave
the Cubi two runs. They added another

Pittsbm-ff Middleweight Per
mits Indian to Take Only
tho Opening Bound.
Harry Oreb. the Pittsburg middle
weight, last night added Clay Turner,
said to be the descendant ot a Sioux
chief, to his list of victims. The com
bat was waged, at the Jersey City base
ball grounds and was a spirited, peppery
affair. Turner started with eclat and
outpointed Oreb thoroughly In the open
ing round, using a straight left to the
face and a right uppercut with good ef
fect. That "as as far as the Indian got In
tho way of a victory. Hcclnnlng with
the second round. Oreb, exerting all his
stamina and aggressiveness, wore Tur
ner agwn to a whisper and had him very
tired at tho close.
Oreb used a left swing to the body
that weakened Turner, and the Pitts
burger also thumped Turner on the Jaw
with left and right ln a way that dis
couraged the Sioux.
Oreb marred his victory by a lot of
unnecessary clinching and his Judgment
of distance was erroneous.
In the semi-final Willie Kohler of New
York won easily from Hugh Brady of
Hobokcn. Brady was In distress at the
close of the batlte.

Special Deipatcll to Tns Sck.
Sahatooa, N'. Y., Aug. 9. Westy Ho
gan, the brown colt owned by Wilfrid
Vlau, startled the big crowd of racegoers
at the track this afternoon with the
svecd he displayed In tha Qlens Palls
Handicap. It waa ono of the worst
form somersaults of tho season. In his
raco a few days ago he could not raise
a -good gallop, -was never a contender
and was boaton off. This afternoon he
waa another horso. Taking tho lead
soon after tho barrier was raised ho
sped along so far In front that tho mud
he splashed could not reach his oppo
nents, who staggered after him.
At tho end of tho mile Journey Westy
Hogan was halt a dozen lengthn in
front of Joseph E. Wldener's Natural
ist, which took second honors, four
lengths ahead of Commander J. K. U
Ross's Damrosch.
It might have been the mud tht't
caused Westy Hojan to show such a big
Improvement. The cott was the "class"
of ths race, and wers It not for his bad
raco ths other day he would have had
a hott of followers. Those who had
watched him In his previous start con
cluded that ho had lost his form and
pinned their faith elsewhere.)
Naturalist the Choice.
Naturalist, because, of his tremendous
esrly speed and the fact that ho has a
fondness for the mud, wbs mads the
favorite and was heavily backed at
even money. Hut NaturallBt novor had
a cfhance to win. Wosty Hogan was too
fast for him and Jockey Kummcr had
difficulty In keeping the Vlau star from
winning by a sixteenth of a mile.
Tho sloppy track played havoc with
the form of the favorites, tind only ono
popular' choice finished In front That
was Capt Ral Parr's Robert 0llv!7
which won the, Stillwater .Steeplechase
by nearly a quarter of a mile.
Only a trio of Jumpets competed In
thin race, which was over tha two and
a half mile course, They were Robert
Oliver. Commander Roan's Early I-lght
and the Triple Spring Farm's Reddest.
The horses did something seldom seen
on a metropolitan course. While set
ting n leisurely pace Reddest bolted nt
the obstable In front of the club house,
and as ho swerved, to the outside of tho
brush fence hoth of his opponcntn fol
lowed suit and for a few seconds none
of the contestants was on tho right
The Jockeys quickly took their mounts
back and the race began all over again.
This time Robert Oliver took tho lend,
with Reddest second and Early Light
third. Capt. Parr's- old gelding leaped
faultlessly and gained with every bound.
The second tlmo around Reddest again
bolted at the Jump In front of the club
house and again Early Ught followed
him outside of the course.
Ik-fore they could get going again
Robert Oliver was an eighth of u mile In
front, and during the final mile all
Jockey Allen had to do to land Robert
Oliver the winner was to sit sOU and
provent Ws mount from falling. This he
did and Robert Oliver cantered home
a)l by himself. Reddest waa an easy
' Wtlann Colors In Front.
Richard T. Wilton, Jr. scored an
other victory' In the first race, when his
brown colt Thletledon romped homo
ahead of a big field of sollln platers.
With Ruddy tenser In the saddle ln-
1 Mend of Johnny McTaggart he ran
' kindly, and after following the pace
I to the head of tlie stretch went to the
front and won easily.
Commander Ross'b Foreground won
the third raco oer the six furlong
course, but his victory was due ln great
part to a poor rldo by Jocliey Sherrcr
on O'Donovan. The lad did more to
retard than help hi mount, with the
result that Foreground, which came with
a rush through the Btretch, got up In
time to cam tho decision on the post
by half a length. O'Donovan finished
Second and IVInflnnier third.
In tho last race Scootr., the bay Ally
belonging to the Cleveland Stable, dis
played great fondness for the muddy
going and spreadeagled her Held. She
won by half a dozen lengths, with W. R.
Coe'a Kiss. Again wcpnil and J. 1L Ros
seter's Passing Shower third.
Passing Shower and Kiss Again were
unable to untrack themselves In the mud
and floundered all over tho track.
Coinmandep Ross, who will lose the
services of Jockey Iiawrenc Tkc" early
next month, has engaged Jockey Kande
to pilot hli horsea during tho remainder
of the season.

JOHN IC TENER'S connection with tho National League was severed
yenterday, nnd lf nomo of the) club owners woro glad Mr. Toner waa
oven uioro Joyful. His oxperlenco ns head of tho parent major body
was far from pleasant, especially in Its latest developments, and perhaps ho
will be better off for his having dropped out of tho game. Thoy say It Is a
bad move for any man once out of baseball and doing woll to go back into It.
Mr. Tener will testify to tho truth of that statement. '
Tho league has placed John Heydler in chargo, and w'o know of no man
bettor fitted for tho duties of tho office. Mr. Heydler will glvo out no.startllng
statements or misstatements, nor ts ho likely to rush Into print with things
which might got the leaguo and the gamo Into bad odor. Mr. Heydler knows
tho leaguo and hq knows tho game perhaps better than tho umpires.
Wo can soy with some authority that tho owners are not looking About
for a successor to Mr. Tener. Mr. Heydler is likely to remain president per
manently. In duo tlmo the various factions may come forward with various
candidates. Mr. Brown of Loulsvlllo and John C. OToole, tbo league's legal
adviser, have been mentioned. Neither is likely to land.
Nat Fleischer Goes Off to tho Army.
Nat Fleischer, for moro than two years sporting editor of Tub Stw, has
started on his way to France. Mr. FlclBchor left for Camp Greenlcaf In
Georgia yesterday morning and he loft smiling. Ho had made unsuccessful
attempts to got Into tho Marino Corps nnd the Navy and welcomed the oppor
tunity to become one of our doughboys. His Induction Into service marked
his family's fourth contribution to tho army. Tho first to go was his brother
Murray, n. dental graduate of Pennsylvania, who Is a First Lieutenant over
there end doing flno work In facial reconstruction. Then came his brother
Dill, who enlisted tn tho Aviation Corps. Last week his brother Joe, who is
beyond tho draft age, roslgned his position as assistant principal ln our
public school system and won accepted for the officers' training camp at Camp
Nat Fleischer takes with htm tho warmest regard of his associates. Never
a man met him but liked him. For twclvo years he has been my pal and
never has a man's friend been truer and moro loyal. Godspeed, Nat! We
know you'ro coming back sofo nnd sound nnd that you will mako a splendid
record for yourself.
Herrmann F.iplalni Stand on tho World's Scries.
We are In receipt of a letter from Garry Hcn-mann ln which he explains
tho stand of the National Commission In tho matter of playing the world's
series after September 2. Tlie letter says:
"I am qulto sure ynu will agree with mo when this matter Is fully under
stood that Organized Baseball ts not defying tho ruling made by Secretary
ef War Baker. Tho enclosed bulletin on this subject Is self explanatory. My
understanding Is that tho Secretary of War has not ruled that baseball was
to stop on tho first of September. On the contrary, ln both his original ruling
nnd tho supplemental ruling made, ho Indicated that ho was anxious to sec
the gume continued. What has been done by him Is to extend the tlmo of
putting the 'work or fight" order Into effect from tho first of July to the
first of September.
"In other words, nt that tlmo players within the draft ago who nro ln
deferred classifications will bo required to seek essential employment, and in
doing so can, lf they euro to, bo governed by tho amended selectivo service
regulations which provide, first, that the player must be notlliod either by
his local board or tho board In tho territory ln which ho Is found to seek
essential employment. He Is then given from three to seven days to file his
statement. Thereupon a finding must be made and certified to his own local
board and to the district board, from which he has an appeal, nil of which
means rod tapo nnd consequently delay.
"Tho world's series will bo over In seven or eight dnys at tlio most. You
will notice from our bulletin that club owners will cooperato with the players
and the Government ln finding essential employment for nil the players re
quired to do so as quickly ns possible nnd will not wait until they get proper
notice from their boards. Thus they will obtain essential employment much
inore quickly than lf they went along under tho regular routine. This surely
must Indicate to everyone that we are cooperating with tho Government
Instead of hindering or delaying them.
"In addition tho world's series arrangement now adopted provides spe
cifically, 'If there !s no objeotion thereto by the Government.' If there Is
why It Is quite certain wo will not go ahead as against their wishes.
We are qulto euro that there will bo oltlctal objection from the Govern
ment against the series at tho time specified, but It Is a question whether
the Individual players will take chances with their deferred classification by
disregarding the "work or fight" mandate after September 1.

Brilliant as was tho Saratoga Handicap on the. opening day of the

us the following telegram:
"I have arranged n, bnxlng net In tho "Yip Yap Yaplmnl:" show at the

Capt. Glick evidently has not been Informed of tho change of date of

been moved forward to August Hi. o that there Is no bar to Leonard's
taking part. The champions bout with Frank le Callahan t-hmiUl ho quite
