1 Aided by Brownie Errors Yankees Win First Game of Year in St. Louis Rain Again Stops Giants and Dodgers BAKER'S SINGLE IN 7TH DECIDES ISSUE Snnbles Yankees to Beat Browns for First Time This Season In St. Louis. opectol DetpoteA to Tna Bolt. 8t Locis, July 18. Pate set the stage for J. Franklin Baker and hli hie bait here In the seventh Inning- to-day and Trarpe Parmer answered Opportunity's KnocK witn a roaring blngle, which, aided and abetted by a wild throw by Earl Smith, downed the Browne and gave the Yankees the first victory they have achieved In St Louis this season. With the Browns leading, 3 to 1, at the Mart of the seventh Hannah's single, s. wide throw by tier her and a fumble by Slsler filled the basest with on down and Baker up. Qne of the southslde slants of Carl Wetlman came over to Prank's liking and he promptly punched the ball into right fleld, driving In Han nah and Pecklrrpaugh and tying the core. When Smith's throw to the plate went Into the stands Plpp cantered across with the1 tally that gave the Yankees victory. 4 to S. The victory not only was the first the Yankees have won of the present series, but was the only one bagged by them In St. Louis this season. On the flrat visit here of Huggins's men this season they dropped three straight. The Browns captured the first two games of the pres ent eerlea which now stands two game to one In favor of St. Louis. The elongated Wetlman was opposed by Allan Russell. The Browns nicked the Yankees' side arm spttball pitcher for two more hits than the Yankees har vested off the tall St. Louts southpaw, but Russell was accorded stonewall sup port while Welltnan's defence crinkled up behind him In the fatal seventh and away went the old ball game. Russell, however, out pitched Wetlman. for two of the St. Louts runs came across on a fluke homer by Slsler In the fifth Inning. With Tobln on ahead Slsler shot what ordinarily would have been a single to centre. Bodle misjudged the ball and It went by him for a home run, scoring Tobln ahead. Roger Launches Rally. Peckinpaugh launched the Yankees off on a rally In the first frame, when he greeted Wcllman with a lash to left and stole second. ripp's sacrifice. Bronkle j to Slsler. planted Roger on third, and i Baker's out. Gedeon to Slsler, permitted Peck to score. The drowns tied the score twice 'n the second Inning on Sls ler' e three base blow to left and Will iams's sacrifice fly to Vlek. With two down In the fifth. Tobln walked. At this Juncture Slsler's hit was misjudged by Bodle, with the re sults aforementioned a fluke homer and two runs. Hannah pried the lid ofT In the sev enth with an Infleld hit. Russell fanned. Peckinpaugh bounced to Oerber and got a life on the little inflelder's wide throw, Hannah taking second. An error by Slsler on Ji'pp filled the bases. Baker singled to'rlght. scoring Hannah and Peckinpaugh. and when Smith's throw went tnto the stands Plpp galloped home with the winning run. The score: NEW YORK (A.) I ST.

CUBS HAKE POOR SHOWING IN HARLEM 22 Hits In 5 Games Is Record on Polo Grounds Heydler Answers Herrmann. Bp FREDERICK O. 1. 1KB. Since the local clubs pulled their Joke postponements of last Tuesday for the alleged reason of rain, they have had all the downpours they care for. They now are willing to call It "quits" with the weather man and only hope he will permit them to got In their big week end contest. For the third time In the last four days all local bats hsvs been Idle. The second game of the Giant-Cub series on the Polo Grounds and the second con flict In the Brooklyn-Red series were called off because of too much moisture. Assuredly the pitchers of the local clubs now are getting all the rest they re quire. No double headers will be played on this stretch, as the Sunday games have furnished both local clubs with a lot of open dates late in the season, which will be filled In with postponed games. The Cubs will make their sixth at tempt to win a game on the Polo Qrounda to-day, and big Jim Vaughn probably will be sent after the contest. For champions the Cubs surely hav shown a weakness In their contests with New York this season. Qlanta Far In Lead. Ths Olants have beaten therm In eight out of nine games and have won all five games played the Bruins on ths Polo Grounds, but even this does not show how weak Chicago has been in Its con tests with Now York. In their five games on the Polo Grounds ths Cubs havs raads only twenty-two hits, an av erage of four and a half hits to the game. In thetf first game here, on May II, the Cuba got six hits off Rube Benton, snd in their next four contests. Includ ing that of last Thursday, they mads four hits In each gams. Barnes twice held them to four hits, Dubuc once and Causey once. , HIGH LIGHTS AND SHADOWS IN ALL SPHERES OF SPORT ADAMS OUTPITCHES NEHF. Leads Plratea go a to O Victory Over Braves.

John Heydler, president of the Na tional League, yesterday Issued a state ment In which he replied to August Herrmann, president of the Cincinnati club, who on Thursday strongly pro tested against the right of the National League to throw out the six Inning game won by Cincinnati in the second game f a double header on July 8. Supplementary to his statement Heyd ler says that If Herrmann makes a for mal request to have this contest finished by playing the last three Innings In stead of having the entire game played oves this angle of the situation will be given consideration. Heydler'a statement follows : This protest was one Involving a violation of a constitutional provision of the league. It was not the ordi nary protest of a loalng club against a violation of the playing rules by the winner, or a case of misinterpre tation of such rules by the umpire. "The complaint was brought by a club which was not a participant In the game in dispute, but which club, as n contender In a keen champion ship race, was Interested and was Justified In Its demands that all ths rulos of contest be strictly enforced. "Under these conditions I referred the case to the board, not because I had doubts as to my Jurisdiction, but because, considering the extraordi nary nature of the protest, I doubted my power to fix the penalty. "In order to dispose of any ques tion as to where proper authority rests to pass on this case I wish to state that If there had been a tie vote between members of the board on this issue my vote as ex officio member of that board would have decided the case Just as It was decided. "The papers of complaint were mailed the Cincinnati club on July 8. No reply had been received for eiht days thereafter. "I do not consider Mr. Herrmann's protests well taken. He has elected to remain away from the last two league meetings, as well as one board meeting. At all of these meetings matters were considered In which the Cincinnati club was especially Interested." ichsry.S.. 0 0 1 4 I M Total. .28 0 4 24 11 11 Totala... 30 3 11 27 41 Batted (or Harper In the eighth Inning.

TN sll this talk of opponents for Jack Dempsey what shout Fred Fulton? We know that nlno hundred and nmaty-nlne out of a thoussnd followers ox ooxing win scout the Idea that Fulton could give uempsey anyuiing bearing oven the faintest resemblance to a fight. Personally ws feel that by his charge that ths fight with Dempsey had been a fake Fulton rulsd himself out of boxing for all time. But In the event Fulton should be able to make a come back In England the old forgiving public will forget all about that fake story and once more give Fulton a hearing. It Is the same old story all over again. We have had many oases of fighters making confessions of fakes that truly were fakes and not, like Fulton's, figments of ths imagination, but they kept fighting. Just now at least one of them holds a rather high position In flsUo circles and professes to be the most stanch supporter of clean boxing. The boxing public Is the most forgiving and the most willing to forget of all sport publics, and if Fulton comes through with flying colors In England It will be only too glad to hall Fulton .'n tho desert of opponents for the new champion. Fulton Is ths cleverest heavyweight the ring yet has seen. We believe him more formidable all around than was ths scientific Jim Corbett But Corbett had a heart, and Fulton thus far has tailed to show that he possesses that organ. Oempssy knocked out Fulton In eighteen seconds In Harrison last August, but Fulton was beaten before he entered the ring. Hike Collins, his manager, said afterward that Fulton, while getting into his togs for ths bout, quaked like an Arkansas bog trotter in his most advanced ague "shimmy." The question rises. Can Fulton develop aggressiveness and a fighting heart? Until now he had been handicapped by poor management. Had Fulton and Dave Force, his rrwnnger at the time, listened to William A. Brady they would have steered clear of Dempsey and landed a match with WJllard, and ths title. But Force led Fulton astray and Collins finished the Job. Now Fulton Is under the management of Tom O'Rourke, an old stager, who has piloted such stars as George Dixon, Joe Walcott and Tom Sharksy. O'Rourks's makeup contains nothing that smacks of sentiment He Is a development of the old dog fighting school in Boston and he will stand for no quitters. Can hs make a fighter out of Fulton? The task msy be accomplished, but whether It can be carried to so advanced a point as to make Fulton a worthy opponent of a man who already has knocked him out In Jigtlme we are dubious. MARSTON AND WILD ARE GOLF FINALISTS OTJIMET'S CADDY WINS. Will Clash To-day on Deal Links to Decide Possessor of New Jersey Title. The Striking Case of Jim Jeffries. The most striking transmogrification of a fighter after a change of management was that which Jim Jeffries underwent when William A. Brady took Billy Delaney's place as his guiding spirit. Jeffries has gone down in flstlo history as a slugger, but in reality he was little more aggres sive than Jess Willard. Don't get us as saying that Jeffries was a Wiilard. But Jeffries was a watchful waiter who was willing to let the other fellow punch himself out in order to get him in a position for a knockout. He pursued that method with Jim Corbett at Coney Island, and he pursued It with Sharkey at the beach in a fight In which the sailor very clearly was robbed of the decision a. id the title. But to come back to the question of developing a fighting heart. In 1888 Jeffries came here with Delaney to show that he was a worthy man for Bob Fltzslmmons, then champion. In order to test the aspirant from the coast It was decided to send him against Bob Armstrong, the negro, and Steve O'Donnell, at the old Lenox A. C. on East 108th street. Jeffries was to go ten rounds with each. Delaney Insisted that O'Donnell go on first, but the programme called for Armstrong to be the Callfornlan's first opponent, and they went on. The big negro outpointed Jeffries, who in the tenth Insisted that he had sprained a thumb. When the time for fighting O'Donnell arrived Jeffries was not to be found. He had gons to his hotel and from there headed back to the coast, firmly resolved never again to put on a boxing glove. The boiler maker had lost heart But Brady had seen that Jeffries possessed great possibilities and he went to the coast to take over his management. Under the hypnotic man agement the Svengall eye and convincing tongu of Brady Jeffries became convinced that after all he was a fighter, with the title Just ling there for him to siese it Jeffries went into the ring with Fltrslmmons In June. 1819, and won In eleven rounds. Can O'Rourke work a similar changer with FuIton7 Steve O'DonneU's Case Very Much Like Fulton's. When Jeffries ran away to California that night at the Lenox A. C. Steve O'Donnell heaved a long sigh of relief, for Steve had been waiting In no heroic frame of mind. And there you have another case very much like Fulton'a If ODonnell had had a fighting he.'irt he undoubtedly would have become the champion. He was clever more clever than Corbett and he could fight, but he had no liking for a punch. Corbett once boxed O'Donnell In a gymnasium here and was badly outpointed. He became convinced that O'Donnell was the next champion and he persuaded some mighty cagy old bettors to believe the same way. Finally It was decided that O'Donnell was to take on some dub and beat him. Corbett was to enter the ring at the height of the excitement and hand O'Donnell the heavyweight championship. But the "dub" they selected was Feter Maher. O'Donnell went Into the ring at Maspeth with Maher on July 6, 1900. It was a fight similar to the Dempsey-Kulton affair. Maher wont Into his corner and glowered at O'Donnell until Steve shook from head to heel. The bell rang and In thirty seconds O'Donnell was down for the full count. Corbett was there ready to present the tiUe to O'Donnell, but the unexpected result did not nonplus the champion. He Jumped into the ring and said, "Peter, you are a great fighter. I present you with the title." Maher looked at Jim hard and replied. "To h with your title: I'll fight you for it." ImaRine that in 1919! Corbett knew that Fitgsimmons would get him and he tried hard to stave off a meeting, but finally he was forced Into the match at Carson City and took his ten. Another case In point was that of Ktd Carter. After he had been knocked out by Bill Hnrahan twelve rounds In Brooklyn In 1900, and shortly afterward lost on a foul to Oeorge Gardiner at Coney Island in the nineteenth round, Carter was through with tho ring. So ho said. He had :io stomach for fighting any more. But he experienced a mental meta morphosis and soon became the most vicious of battlers. Any time Carter appeared the public knew that It was going to see a fight. Like Stanley Ketchel Carter was nervous and fearsome before he started, but once he got going he was a living fury. if Total. m II vi li.

The only oloss match of the morning was In ths final bracket between F. F. Turrell of Morris County and W. F. Donohue, representing Shackamaxon. All the last named needed was a I at the home hole to win, but he took three putts after driving the green, thereby giving his opponent a "life" when everything seemed lost Turrell on his tee shot had landed In the water, but dropping back for a penalty stroke he laid his next stone dead and got a half In 4.

By way of proving that his sensa tional playing In returning a 69 for ths qualifying round was no flash in ths psn Jesse W. Sweetser, young Ardsley golf star, waltsed easily through his two roundu of match play yesterday in Westchester county championship Apawamls. In the morning round eliminated A. W. RraAd, a clubrruate, tind for his afternoon's work ha dle- i posed of C. V. lien ton, Hudson River star. His score against the former was 4 and I, while Benton was beaten 7 and 6. In ac'dltion to the continued high class Of Fivt-iser's play the days contests de veloped more than one othsr rather un expected feature. For one thing John O. Anuerson, Slwanoy sclntlllant, win ner of tire last two tournaments staged by the Westchester association, was boosted right out of the race In the asc end round of play. Anderson fell before tho attack of Ualnes Qwsthmsy of Apa wamls by a score of 3 and 2, after hav ing eliminated one Apawamls entrant in the first round In H. S. Oraves. Something of a surprise also was ex pressed when (J. L. Conloy of Slwanoy took the measure of T. V. Be rm Ingham of Wykagyl 1 up. Bermlngham also lest In tho second round, after winning very easily from H. L. Phillips, a Siwanoy player, by S and 7 in the first round. C. H. Paul of Gedney Farms waa hardly expected to beat Lee Maxwell, entered from Siwanoy, but he did so by a soars of 2 and 1 In the first round. Getting back to the playing of Sweet ser. the youngster got away to a bad start In the morning. At the finish ef ths first five holes he found himself 3 down to Brand. But he rallied quickly, and by the time the match reached tha tenth tee. he was I up. From there Out he set the pace straight through to the finish. Sweetser'a Second Round GoasAV He didn't fritter away much tlms in going after his match with Benton in the afternoon. He turned the first nine holes In 36. and was 3 up at the finish of that half. He kept right ahead at top speed and won the next four In a row, having a pair of 4s and a pair of Is and endlug the match two strokes under 4s. In commenting on his game Benton stated that he sliced a drive on the second, and pushed his tee shot to tho rough on the seventh. He didn't miss any more. He barely missed holing a 3 on the 612 yard ninth, and on two other greens rimmed the cup tor "birdies." The battle between Gwathmey and Lewis In the morning was a hard fought affair, ending on the nineteenth hole. Lewis ran a 35 in going out and turned 2 up on the home player. But the latter evened things on the next two with a 4 and 3 against a pair of 6s. He took the lead by chipping In for a 2 from just off the green at the twelfth and gained another on the fourteenth. Lewis rallied and cut the lead to 1 on the sixteenth with a bird 3. The seventeenth was halved. Lewis took the eighteenth to even up again when Owsthney iivipcd bta drive and eventu ally counted a 8. On the tirst extra hole Lewis was short on his second and then ran his third acrosH the green. He could do no better than a j. Gwathmey held the grern with his second and holed Ills second putt for a 4. Brrniliighatn's I phlll Fight. Bermlngham was forced to make sn uphill tight throughout In Ills match with Conley. The Siwanoy player won the first. The next three were halved and ho tnerea.ted his read to 3 by grabbing tha flftli and sixth with 11 and 4 against 4 and D. The seventh and eighth yielded no advantage, but Bermlngham cut his handicap to two holes by winning the ninth. Conley promptly took the tenth, and the next two were divided. Bermlngham registered a 4 ayalnst u ;. on the thir teenth, only to have Conley drop a bird 4 on the fourteenth, aam stretching his lead to 3. He aklddcil a bit On the next two, and Bermlngham promptly si pped past him with wins on both, re ducing the lead to a slnglo hole. The seventeenth was halved. Birmingham missed a nice opening On the eighteenth. Conley half topped his drive atiU took 2 to reach the flat facing the green. B.-rmlngham waa well lover, :md reached the green In 2. But hiH apiirna.il putt was weak, and he did not hole his nest effort. Conley played a fine mashie to the preen and halved the hole in S to win the match. Anderson ascribed hla defeat to wretched work on the greens. His work frmn tee to green wa good, but ho sim ply could not get his putter to working. The lasn snsrlea.
