PLAYED POOR BALL
Millers Beautifully Walloped by
the Speedy Saints.
LOST BOTH GAMES ON SUNDAY
Local Pitohers Could Not Pitch Nor
Conld the Fielders
The more that Is said about the events
,at Lexington park the worse the local
•fans will feel. A number of men who
-ought to be in the hospital tried to play
ball with the speedy St. Paul team,nushed
with success and for the nonce invincible.
The present Ryan crowd is about the best
.that St. Paul has ever owned, and the
fans are showing their appreciation.
The first game In the double header was
a fine one to look at, although the millers
/were not in It at any stage. Chech, the
.Wisconsin collegian, narrowly missed
winding up the game with neither run
&or hit to the millers' credit. But in the
ninth inning he issued a pass to Rone,
.then he made a balk, some one made an
error and Brashear hit the ball safely.
.The first and last miller hit of the game
brought in Rohe with the only run. The

It must have been that the defeat up
set the Minneapolis team. Their pitchers
couM not pitch, nor the fielders field.
Whitridge did good work in the first inn-
Ing, but was chased to the woods in the
third Inning. Then young Ford, the star
twirler of the Toozes, made his appear
ance. He puzzled the saints for two
rounds and then he followed Whitridge.
There was no one to take his place, how
ever, and the youngster had to stay in
and see himself slaughtered.

giving Mr. Thurston a close call for the

play was for 36 holes. On the ninth hole
Thurston drove into c bunker and in his

A GOLF DINNER
Capt. Christian, and Hl* Players the
Capt. C. H. Hood and his invincible
team of golfers ate an elaborate dinner at
the Minikahda club Saturday evening at
the expense of Capt. George C. Christian
and his aggregation of crestfallen braves.
It all came about through the inability of
Christian's men to stem the tide of defeat
which, set in against them in the early
stages of the "dinner" match, as it was
called. Hood's team finished ten up over
their opponents. S. F. Porter, who was
opposed to H. L. Wilkine, won the largest
advantage of the entire match, being 10
holes ahead of Wilkins at the finish.

Minneapolis Yachtsmen Enthusias
tic Over Race for America's Cup
TALKS WITH 'TONKA'S SAILORS
Concensus of Opinion Is That Either
of the American Boats Can
Beat Shamrock 11.
Not even in New York city is the out
come of the race for the America's cup
being awaited with greater interest than
.among Minneapolis yachtsmen. The Min
.netonka Yacht Club has generally had
.representatives at the front during the
big event, and there will be no exception
to the rule this year. Several members
of the club have already planned to go.

Sir Thomas Lipton, Owner of the Shamrock H., "With Watson. Her Do
niener, on His Left, and Captain Sycamore, Her Skipper, on His Right
,are H. J. Burton of the Plymouth Cloth
,ing house and William Peat, Jr., than
whom there never were more enthusiastic
inland lake yachtsmen. Hal Watson, who
,saw the race two years ago, and fol-
Jowed it on one of the New York Yacht
.Club's steam yachts, has not yet made
jup his mind to go or stay at home. It is
the grandest spectacle in the world, says
Mr. Watson, and if he can possibly get
,away he'll be there.
, Everyone in Minneapolis who knows
Anything about yachting is optimistic over
.the outlook. They say there has been a
.great deal df unnecessary alarm about the
America's cup being in jeopardy, and
that eitherConstitutian orColumbiastands
fis good a chance of winning out against
11. as any other defender in
.the history of the contest.
If the cup is to go 'back to its start
ing place all agree that the time could
not possibly be more opportune than now,
.and that it would be very easy, and, to
some extent pleasant, to lose to such a
thorough, gentlemanly sportsman as Sir
Thomas, especially after all the nice
.things he has been saying about the
Here is what some of the Mlnnetonka
yachtsmen think about it:
Ward C. Burton—Columbia proved her
self to be the better all-around boat in the
trial races. While the Constitution won
,an ec.ual numfoer of races, she did so in
fluky, drifting breezes, which will prob
,ably not prevail in the international races
(Which are to be sailed this year during
,the last of September, instead of the mid
dle of October, at which time the velocity
of the wind off the New York coast aver
ages stronger than in October.
The question is, can the Constitution de
.feat the Columbia in moderate to strong
.breezes, instead of a drifting match. Up
to date Columbia has porved her su
periority in auch winds, especially in
.windward work. This may be due to the
.superiority of her sails and better
handling. There is yet three weeks in
which to get Constitution in racing trim.
Still, it does not seem advisable to race
&n old cup defender against a new chal
lenger. In all probability Columbia
would be defeated should she again be
.selected as the defender. Unless Consti
tution shows marked improvement she
will probably meet the same fate. For
once the challenging boat seems to be
tuned up and in better condition general-
Jy. While it is hard to pick a winner,
j should say that if Constitution is chosen,
Shamrock will defeat her in moderate
,and strong breezes. We should pray for
Win. Peet, Jr.—l think the defender of
the America's cup will win, whichever
boat may be selected for the honor. I
believe Constitution will be the privileged
boat. The, real tests of the comparative
merits of the American yachts are now
on off Newport. I don't think Constitu
tion has bad a fair shake yet, and that she
will show wonderful improvement now
that she has finally gotten into condition,
with Nat Herreschoff on board. The Co
lumbia sails have been a better fit than
Constitution's and she has no doubt been
handled better. I feel that Shamrock 11.
was given a distinct advantage over the
defending yacht by the postponement of
the races from August to September. It
was a big concession for the New York
Yacht Club to make, and Sir Thomas
should feel correspondingly grateful. In
putting in a new mast after the first pole
was carried away, you may be sure he
adapted it to different weather f.han he
expected to encounter in August. On
the other hand, Herreschoff undoubtedly
built Constitution for a light wind. She
was intended to sail in August.
C. B. Eustis—l am confident that Con
stitution will win. I don't think the trials
to date have been a fair criterion of what
the new defender can do. and that she
will vindicate herself off Newport. So
far as I have read, there has been nothing
wonderful about tlie performance of the
challenger. She has not appeared to such
advantage in her trials with Shamrock I.
as has Constitution with Columbia. If
our boat is In proper racing condition
and is sailed right, she will assuredly
win out on the present showing.
Should we by any possibility lose, it
would be in a certain sense a pleasure to
have Sir Thomas win.
Fred Fayram—The Amerlcwfe *cap was
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
never in greater danger than at the pres
ent time. In Shamrock II I actually
believe that England has finally sent over
a boat which has it in her to outwit the
genius of a HerreEchoff. If we are to
judge from Constitution's showing up to
date, she will not have the ghost of a
show with Shamrock 11., save In a light
wind, and the equnoctial storms will be
about due when the race is sailed. I be
lieve the Newport trials will give the
honor of defending the cup to the Co
lumbia. In some respects I believe it
would be a good thing with the cordial
relations which exist between Sir
Thomas and the United States to have
his boat win. It would be easy to lose
Fred Hubbard—You can't come to any
conclusion from Constitution's perform
ance in the preliminary trials. She "nas
been getting in shape all the while, and
beyond doubt has not been well haudled.
With her plates overhauled and a proper
fit to her canvas, I rather expect to see
Constitution surprise them this week. I
see nothing in the performance of Sham
rock 11. to cause alarm, though we al
ways have these wild rumors about the
cup being in jeopardy weeks and months
In advance of the big race.
Hal Watson—l think Constitution will
win handily. Sh,e hasn't been in good
sailing condition before now, and is bound
to show her superiority in shipshape with
Nat Herreschoff on board.
Campbell Sweeney—Cheer up. Either
Columbia or Constitution will keep the
cup where it belongs, In the New York
Yacht clubhouse. We always have these
bad scares before a race, and the results
show how groundless they were. Herree
choff has put his very best work on Con
stitution, and with the right man at the
helm, she'll cross the line first in the
H. J. Burton—lt would never do, of
course, to be over-confident, but it is my
firm belief that we shall keep the cup
on this side of the water. I have yet to
see wherein Shamrock 11. excells Con
situation, and the latter's performance to
date has certainly been more creditable.

IT'S A BIG BLUFF
That Air of Confidence Worn by
American League Barons.
SO THINK SOME OF THE WISE FANS
Reaioni for Believing; That All
I* Not Well With the
A very bold front is worn by the Amer
ican league president and some of his sat
ellites, but there are surface indications
that all is not so well as they would have
the public believe. While one of the
"barons" says that the Americans do not
care for peace unless the Nationals sue
for it, the baseball public, barring some
people in Chicago, are pretty well "on to
the bluff." The Americans have made a
remarkable record to date, but that they
are in a position to crowd the Nationals
off the earth or even to force them to sue
for peace is not at all likely. If the Na
tional league magnates mane any conces
sion to the "fat boy" league or any com
promise they will commit business suicide,
for if things go on with the Americans as
they have and the Nationals conduct their
business with common sense a year from
now, they will have no rival worthy the
Twenty-five cent ball is all right for
twenty-five cent leagues, but when the
Americans raise the price of general ad
mission to 50 cents, as several of the mag
nates say must be done if they are to make
even fair returns in a successful season,
they are getting out of their class of pat
rons. The latter won't pay 60 cents and
the Americans can't play National league
ball. It's absurd for any one to contend
that the American league clubs of last
year, such as Kansas City and Cleveland,
for instance, could be converted into teams
of the major league class by the addition
of three or four stars. The American is
recognized as a "major" league largely
through Ban Johnson's audacity, but not
for the kind of ball it serves to Its pat
rons. When it elevates the prices as the
members say it must, then trouble will
follow. The other alternative will be that
the players won't get their salaries, for
the Americans, even at 25 cents, will not
be the novelty next year* that they were
Somera Ready to Quit.
It is reported that C. W. Somers, the
financial backer of the league, is sore
and being unable to bear Mr. Johnson's
arrogance and bulldozing tactics will with
draw. His baseball stock'is on the mar
McGraw and the Baltimore management
makes no concealment of its contempt for
Johnson and will not be with his league
next year under any circumstances. De
troit, too, is disgusted with Johnson. His
poorly concealed effort to help Comiskey
and the white stockings win the pennant
are so obvious that if the other magnates,
meaning Connie Mack, Jimmy Manning and
Hugh Duffy, were not such blind followers
of Johnson they would also resent his fa
In spite of all the drivel that Johnson's
press agents have been handing out con
cerning his "wise administration" there
have been two or three times as hany dis
orderly scenes on the American diamonds
as on the National fields. A further in
dication that Johnson is not such an ex
cellent manager of men as he is reputed
to be is shown by the defiant language
sent at him from Baltimore by the Chi
cago and Baltimore players.
When shown the statement alleged to
have been made by Ban Johnson in which
he is quoted as saying, "I lay all this
trouble with the umpires to those Nation
al leaguers, Duffy, Griffith and McGraw.
These three men have stirred up all this
trouble, previously unknown to the Amer
ican league." Captain Griffith, of the Chi
cago team, said: "If Ban Johnson thinks
for one minute he can blacklist an Ameri
can league ball player he is badly mis
taken. He would suddenly find himself
president of a league which did not exist.
Should he resort to any such outrageous
tactics the ball players would desert his
organization like rats from a sinking ship.
"Ban Johnson goes on to say that Mc-
Graw, Duffy and I have stirred up all this
trouble. On the contrary, I join with both
McGraw and Duffy In saying that all the
trouble that has occurred in this league
this year has been caused by Ban Johnson
himself failing to' carry out his duties as
i president of the league. It is his place
and duty to supply umpires who know the
game of baseball, and who can .manage
players. He has five on his staff, ani only
two of them understand the game. They
are 'Joe' Cantillion and 'Jack' Sheridan.
"I would respectfully suggest to Ban
Johnson that if he desires less trouble in
this league he spend less time fishing and
more time attending to the league's busi
"I guess Ban Johnson would do well to
blacklist McGinnity," remarked Captain
Robinson, of the Baltimore club. "Han
lon wants him bad, and I expect to see
him back in the National league next year.
If Johnson doesn't quit his tactics pretty
soon he'll lose more than the Baltimore
club. He'll find what Griffith says about
being without a league is true."
Minors to Organize.
It is reported from Boston that President
T. J. Rickey of the Western League has sent
letters to the minor league presidents all over
the country suggesting that a meeting for
organization be called as soon as possible.
. The organizations interested are the Wes
tern League and Western Association, the
Southern ■ League, ' the Eastern League, the
New England League, the New York State
League and the Connecticut League. The
. two Pacific coast leagues are also invited to
take part in the new organization.
The New England League has named Chi
cago as the place and Sept. 8 as the most
convenient time. Mr. Hlckey will % get the
opinions of others and decide when and where
to hold the meeting. .-.-.'"
The minor leagues . in the east think the
time has come when they can do something
for ■ themselves, and welcome the crossing of
swords even with the magnates of the Na
tional League, feeling that the energetic
American League will see the advisability of
working in harmony with the young and am
bitious organizations, who feel they have been
getting simply the crumbs from the league
table long enough.
la Presidents Hickey, O'Rourke, Parrell and
other . leaders of the minor leagues, - well
backed up by the . fair-minded press, the old
league will find Its always powerful ally, the
minor leagues, and organized baseball sus
picious of all its moves. This will leave all
teritory open, and several surprises may be
in store for the old diplomats.

"FEATHERS' " NERVE FAILED
Forfeited *< Trimming- Race to John S.
"Feather's" courage failed him at the
last moment. Feathers, whose true name
is Harry Winters, had agreed to beat John
S. Johnson, the former bicycle champion,
in a mile swim down river from Minne
haha creek—the former with his clothes
on—or forfeit $25. When the crowd got
together below the Soldiers' Home yes
terday, Feathers insisted on removing
part of his street clothes, but Johnson's
friends wouldn't hear to any such com
promise. They insisted on Feathers ad
hering closely to the original terms of the
bet. The black waters had a depressing
effect on the expert swimmer, and he
finally forfeited the money. Johnson's
backer issued a challenge to Feathers to
race Johnson for $500 a side for 100 yards
/under the same conditions. If Feathers
#.gain backs down, Johnson's friends will
be willing to pit him against the profes
sional on equal conditions.

"There will be twelve or thirteen ves
sells in the patrol fleet—five or six reve
nue cutters and five or six steam yachts.
I shall offer the right of line in the di
vision composed of steam yachts to Sir
Thomas Lipton's Erin, a courtesy extended
two years ago and one which is his due.
"There is a great deal of lawful author
ity that goes with the revenue service
pennant that harbor captains especially
respect. In order that a steam yacht may
fly it it will be necessary for me to desig
nate an officer of the revenue marine to
go aboard and take charge of the ves

will not interfere with the handling of
the yacht which will be left to her own

GAUDAUR VS. TOWNS
The Great Sculling Match Comes
MEN OF VERY DIFFERENT TYPES
Those Interested In Aquatics Gath
ering; at Rat: Portage for
Special to The Journal.
Rat Portage, Sept. 2.—Jake Gaufiaur,
the champion sculler of the world, is
training with more care than he ever did
before for his coming race at this place
with George Towns, the English champion.
Gaudaur says that he has the race of his
life before him, and that this battle for
the championship honors which he Is try
ing to retain will be the hardest he ever
The race will be rowed Wednesday, and
will be one of the most important aquatic
events in years. The course is three
miles with a turn, and the race is for
$1,000 a side and the championship of the
world. Both men are hard at work, and
are said to be in excellent trim for the
big event. Jake is now down to the weight
,he will row at and is complaintag about
the monotony of further training. Towns
said yesterday that he could not be in
better condition, and he is confident of
winning the coveted championship
Gaudaur and Towns walked up the street
a few days ago and many remarked "the
pigmy and the giant." The champion
towered above the young Australian who
believes he can wrest the championship
from him, and his herculean proportions
made Towns appear very small physically.
There are very- few= men anywhere who
can boast a finer physique thanj. G. Gau
daur. He is over six feet^ro height,
with the shoulders of a Hercules. His
lower limbs are equally well developed,
end a great part of the force -of his pow
erful stroke is gained from leg action: In
rowing Gaudaur sits high in his shell and
his orect position gives him a wonderful
If physical development or apparent
strength are to win the conteet.'it looks
as if Towns had taken his long journey
in vain. George tips the scales at 154
pounds, and is five feet eight and a half
Inches in height In street clothes Towns
looks almost slender. In fact the people
here say he looks like a "counter hopper."
When stripped, however, his muscular de
velopment shows to better advantage. And
yet his muscles do not stand out like
those of many athletes. In this particu
lar bis development much resembles that
of James J. Corbett, the pugilist. Towns
greatest development is in his thighs and
leg muscles. His arms are not long and
he gets most of the power of hia stroke
in his body swing, putting a great deal
of power In the front of his outrigger.
Another point of Interest in the race ii
that the cantestanta scull in vastly dif
ferent style. Gaudaur rows about thirty-two
(strokes a minute in a race, and to a
casual observer his stroke would seem
much shorter than that of his opponent.
However, this is not entirely so, for the
champion's height and length of arm give
him a tremendous sweep. His recovery is
perfect, the oar coming back with light
ning rapidity the moment the force of
the strike is spent. Towns style is typ
ically English, the long sweeping stroke
f with the momentary rest at its conclu
sion. In his shell George reminds one of
Edward Hanlan, one of the world's great
est scullers. Towns rows only tweoty-aix
'strokec to the minute, but they carry him
along at a great pace. His sweep is long
and powerful, and his recovery barring a
slight pause at the end of each stroke is
rapid. Hia style, taken as a whole, looks
less tiring than that of the champion.
A remarkable featlre of the race will ba
that Gaudaur will row in a shell which is
six and one-half feet longer than that of
