Baseball Moguls Hold Meet
jng This Morning at Bellc-vue-Stratford
to Complete
THeir Plans.
Tho Notional Commission, armed and
well prepared with a 60-ccnt plcco, went
Intb moro or If.ss executive cession at the
Bcllovuo-Stratford Hotel this morning to
arrange tho last details of tho world's
series. Tho presence of the. half dollar
was made necessary becaute on tho re
sult of tho tos'd depends where the first
game between the Athletics and Qravcw
T HI bo staged,
Tho other detail requiring attention vrns
the naming of tho date for the first imo.
Tho arrangement of tlio scries schedule,
which Included tho settlement of the ques
tion as to Whether two games should be
played In succession In Boston and Phil
adelphia or one game alternately, as pro
posd by Manager Staltlngs, was anothor
matter to bo dlscusced. The matter of
tho starting hour for the games, tho se
lection of the umpires from tho two
leagues, giving ofllclal canctlon for tho
playing of tho series and other details
of lesser consequence were taken u? In
The commission, composed of Ban John
son, Garry Hen man and Governor Toner,
wero assisted In their work by President
Gnffney and Manager Stalllngs, of the
Boston club, and President Shlb'o anr"
Manager Mack, of the Athletics.
This nftcrncon the Commission plans
to witness tho Phillies-Brooklyn gamo
at Broad and Huntingdon streets, at .1
o'clock. This Is tho beginning of the
final scries to be played by Dooln's
men In Philadelphia this year. Follow
ing this series, the local National
Leaguers go to Now York to completo
the schedule, playing tho defeated
While, things are happening In Phila
delphia, tho Athletics nrc In Washing
ton preparing for the world's series.
That Is, feomo of the regulars are there.
The line-up today for tho Athletics
a;aliist tho Nationals has not been an
nounced. Baker, Collins, Oldrlng, Ben
der, Plank and Feveral other members
of tho team camo directly to Philadel
phia from St. Louis. Hero they will get
In idiapo for the scries. Several of tho
regulars will play In tho Now York
erics hero, the last of the season.
The enthusiasm displaveil by the members
of tho Hactilon Country Club Is manifestoil
from the number who turned out for the club
cnamp.onslilp. So laigc was tho thron? that
v lined to play that it vvas found necessary to
form tlirco slxtcens beside tho cliamploiiuliiii
division .
Many surprises wero In store for the mem
btrs of tho Old York Itoad Country Club In
their club championship tournament, the first
round or niatch play for which has alrca.lj
tn completed. Or. Parrs, thu present holder
or tlio title, has won tho championship three
time, and In his encounter with Dr. Stalor.
no has won tlio Clartnco Miller Cup threo
times. Dr. I'arry had to acknowledge defeat,
llotn were expected to reach the finals. Dr
Jiajor. In turn, was eliminated from further
participation in the event by Kdwln Steven".
no looms up as the likely winner.
Tho wlnnlnrr of tho Ilcrtcllvn Cup at the
IiumlnKdon Valley Country Club last Patur
div j Mrs. K. H l'-ltler, of the Merlon
rr!,ct Club, brings beforo tho public a new
figure In local championship circles and a
K'lfei who will have to be reckoned with In
no future. Havlnsr tasted tho lijs of victorv,
V Is extremely unlll.elj that Mrs. Filler will
be ratlsfloj In future with anv but the 'first
rlace. And It ma lie bald In passing that
hTi Is a colfcr who knows her shots nnd
can play Ihem. Her shots with tho wood and
Iron aro straight and long, nnd were It not
for nr erratic performances on tho rrrcens
nt times she would be a still more prominent
Motor The litter fault can be overcome with
practice, and It is sifo to assume that Mrs.
i'ltler is awaro of her troubles anil will cn
ciavor to correct them. ,
Thi final round of match play for the chim-rlons-ilp

Secretary of War Instru
mental in Ending Negotia
tions When Differences
Could Not Be Settled.
Mr. Gairlson, Secretary of War, yes
terday tecommended to tho West I'olnt
athletic authorities that all negotiations
ulth Annapolis for tho arrangement of
futuie football games be abandoned. This
action ended tlio unsuccessful attempts
o'f representatives of tho two academies
to select a site for the inter-Ecrvlce con
test. The Secretary of tho Navy, Mr. Daniels,
and Mr. Garrison were appealed to to
settle this qu?stlon. Both of them sided
with West I'olnt, but tho Naval Academy
representatives refused to yield. Mr. Gar
tison then advised West Tolnt to call tho
negotiations off.
This dispute has now continued for sov
eral months, aud-thcro Is little question
that tho deadlock and Mr. Garrison's
drastic recommendations will prevent any
game this year and even serlouoly
threaten tho continuance of this yearly
contest on the gridiron between the Army
and the Navy.
The Navy now objected to this schema
becauso ft discovered that Washington
has not the facilities to handle the gamo
nnd tho most Southern point which the
Navy could obtain would bo Philadelphia
That would place tho game every other
year In New York and on tho alternate
e.u lu Philadelphia. With such an ar
rangement tho Navy would have by far
tho greater distnnco to travel, would be
put to greater expense nnd would lose the
udvantngo In the gamo which a short
Journey for the team gives.

Hcppc Is now leading, 1301 points to 807.
We agree with Georgo that the fight

howl about an ounco or two, but what
about "a fighter" George, when that man
Is poorer by n hundred or two? Kid
Williams was a quarter of a pound over
weight thp other night when he met
Kltl Herman here, and It cost the Balti
more Kid just f30 an ounco.
Tnlltln? about the Kid Wllllams-Kld
Herman fight tho other night, it Is now
pretty well agreed that oven champion
fighters aro not to bo petted; nor aro
they to be allowed to "run tho show"
to suit themselves. Williams, as cham
pion, probably figured ho should be given
the preference as to the corner ho want
ed. Herman didn't think so. That's how
tho fun started.

Gone all thoughts of Boston breaking:
Dream of battled fields no more.
Pays of danger, nights of waking,
Whtro the fortress of the Braves
Stands amid the lair of learning,
There a captured banner waves;
Vain now all regret of yearning.
Giants, rest; thy warfare o'er,

Disciplining lagging football players by
dropping them from a training table Is 1
something new In gridiron strategy. But
hereafter any man who partakes ot tho
carefully selected food ot tho Pcnnsl
vnnia training table will have to play
football up to tho standard set by Coach
George H. Brooke. This training table Is
to bo an exclusive place, and a scat there
will bo a seat of honor. Eleven players
found that out yesterday.
This is distinctly a Pennsylvania Inno
vation, and tho Idea Is a good one. Theto
Is no ground for any of the men dropped ,
yesterday and sent back to their own
homes or boarding houses to get their j
meals to feel that they have been uufahly '
dealt with. Every player now knows that
he has set beforo him a standard of efll- '
clency which. If he maintains, will assuro
him a place of honor at the Quaker train
ing tabic. Failure to meet It means that
ho will bo summarily dropped. Still theto
will be no limit to the number of playeis
who may be at the tabic As Captain
Journcny said. In commenting on tho
new rule, they would have 50 men at the
tablu If 50 men could bo found who meas
ured up to their standard.
Perhaps It was this diastic ruling on
tho coach's part that put new llfo Into
tho Quaker cloven yesterday. Anyhow,
the varsity regulars went at the scrubs
with more spirit than they havo shown ,
any time this season, in 15 minutes' time
tho regulars took the ball across tho
sctubs' goal line threo times. Two of tho
touchdowns were made by Merrill and
tho third by Avery. This big halfback
took a long forward pass from Irwin, who
replaced Merrill at quarterback, and then
dashed to yards down tho field for tho

Having set a now mark for completo
reversal of form, tho Hoston llravcs ara
now prepared to glvn battle to tho Ath
letics for tho world's baseball champion
ship. This National league club, whose
movements on tho field hae been directed
during the last two years by Georgo
Stalllngs, has upset precedent by malting1
tho most remarkable pennant run ever
recorded in tho major leagues.
Connie Mack once remarked that It took
five year3 to build up a winner. Stalllngs
has demonstrated that if there aro any
rules regarding tho development ot a tri
umphant club, there aro exceptions. Ho
has made tho pennant prognostlcators ot
the land look foolish by coming to the
fore In an almost miraculous manner,
when It was generally forecasted that his
cluh would not finish a good eighth.
There were a few, very few, who, prior
to the opening of tho National League,
averred that Stalllngs' men had a chance
to win the pennant.
Tne qunstion concerning tho Boston
club's race to the flag is not "Now you
have won it, what aro you going to do
with it?" but "How did you do If" Just
how Is Indeed a matter that puzzles tho
baseball world. The simple answer, of
course. Is that the Braves played the
best ball in tho National League. But
what forces combined to bring about that
condition'.' Briefly, there weie six rea
sons: Stalllngs, Evcrs, Maranville, Jame,
Tyler and Rudolph.
Beginning with the crack of the gun
on April 11 the Braves were off. But
they wero not off Into the lead. They
soon dropped down and remained near
tho small end of tho percentage column
until after July IS. On that date Stall
lngs' team was being given a dally
tongue lashing by the vorboso leader.
Suddenly tho team awoke. On July 21
tho Braves had, thanks to the close
grouping of the other clubs, Jumped Into
fourth place Trom then until August 9
tho Braves teemed to be Immovable, but
on August 10 they went into second place..
It was lust nt this petlod of the race"
that McGraw, who had been leading, hap
pened to look back. He had to rub his
eyes twlco before he believed he was
gazing on tho Boston team.
Even then no ono seriously considered
the Bravos as n pennant possibility ex
cept Stalllngs and the Braves themselves.
Apparently they knew then their power,
ami It was partly this confidence that
helped thorn to wlPld It.
But to got back to dates. The Braves
continued in second place from August 9
until September 2. when they drew along
side the Giants, much to McGraw's sor
row. Then It was that tho Giants awoke.
But it was too lute. McGraw opened,
tho throttle, but tluio was a leakage In
tho power. M.ittv was not going well,
Marquard was doing prurlv and the en
tire New Vork i-luh was demoralized at
the thought of having their plans for
spending the worlds series so rudely
But all this time Stallings' mon were
not figuring on tho series monev They
wero on the field playing ball every af
ternoon except when It rained. Tho hot
flffht throut-h Soiitcmber between the
Bravos and tho Giants will long be re
membered. Confidence was on thn sldn
of tho Braves, and overconndence. which
soon changed m desperation, on the side
of the UUnt.
The Braves were victorious and after
that date thev wero never topped by New
York, though the Uothamltm made a de
termined fight until the finish vesterday.
Tho fijrureu thow that it took the
Braves only ft trifle over klx weeks to
bo froTi Ut to rtrst pU-e and only a.
little over two months, from July IS, to
ilinb the Hag and give the fans of Bos
ton a p'nna.it In the Vational League
or me ore lime in sixteen jears.
The bulk of the credit for winning the
pennant should be given George Stal
llngs He is a brainy bail player Thla
must bo admitted by everyono. no mat
ter what then personal opinions of the
manager nuv be when lie is not on thn
bench He ruts made a pennant wlnnlns
