The Minneapolis team owes its victory of yesterday to the fcindnees of Prultt and Wheeler, who insisted that Joe Sugden, the first base man, was at least seven feet tall and threw the ball accordingly, with the result that at one time It went to the clubhouse and twice after ward to the bleachers. Prultt was the first offender, and this was in the third inning after Lefty Davis received a base on balls In an attempt to catch Lefty leading off, the pitcher threw the ball to Sugden and the latter was just able to touch it. It went high and so far that before it was returned to the diamond Davis was telling Kelley how fast he had ran The second Minneapolis run, which was the winning one, came in the eighth inning. Fox was first to hat In this Inning and he knocked an easy one to Wheeler at third. After trying to stand on the ball for a while, Wheeler at last picked it np and the way he slammed It at the first base bleachers should go down in history. It went by Sugden so fast that he was waiting for it when Fox reached second, and by the time it was recovered "our cap tain" was on third Shannon then came to bat and he poked ball ine did Pox1 the sam manner as and tthe the sam Wheelee man Th latter by this time had pulled himself together, and, Just to show the crowd that he could still throw hard he pasted it to the first base bleachers again, allow lng Fox to score. The only run made bv the visitors was in their part of the ninth when "Van Zandt, who was first up, put the ball over the right field fence. The game was interesting and many star plays were pulled off In the eighth, with one out on the saints' side. Geier made a double, advancing Prultt, who was on first, to third. The fans became shakv and more than one could see another game credited to the St Paul team, hut such was not the ease, as Sugden knocked a fly to Davis in deep center and the latter, making one of the prettiest throws ever seen on Nicollet park, cut off Pruitt by three feet, thus saving the game. Oyler, Fox and Freeman got together like clockwork and in the seventh and ninth Innings pulled off neat double plays, the last one ending the game Cadwallader pitched a good game, but was not at his best, as was Prultt, who allowed only three hits, and one of these a mere scratch. The saints connected for eight safe ones, but the errorless work of the millers held the score down.

Portland, Me., July 28.William McDonough, a Holy Cross collage freshman, aided by James Dodwell, the star Holy Cross back, saved Miss Ella Morris, a debutante of Evanston, 111., from drowning Thursday night. Miss Morris was walking down a flight of stairs leading from a wharf to a raft, but she forgot that the bottom Btep only reached high water mark, and since the tide was only half in, she literally walked off into the harbor. The motorboat of McDonough and Dodwell was just approaching the float. McDonough heard the young woman's screams, and, tho it was dark and he could only trace her by the splash, lumped overboard with all his clothes on. After a fierce struggle in the dark with the terrified girl, who almost choked him, he got her to the raft. He waited until daylight, and then by diving recovered a pooketbook containing a consider able sum of money which she had lost.

O'BRIEN, Who Doubts. By O'Loughlln. Without attempting to pass upon the truth of the charges against Clarence Owens, one is constrained to wonder at' the attitude taken by Joe D. O'Brien, president of the league. If he was quoted correctly this morning, his state ment is a "funny one." O'Brien Is unquestionably right in supporting his umpires, as such a policy is necessary In baseball, but when such serious charges are filed against an umpire it behooves the president of a league to move quickly and subject his ap pointee to just as rigid an investigation as he would a player against whom similar charges had been made. O'Brien's talk that he would not listen to the "evidence of gamblers"if he ever made such a remarksounds childish. The evidence in such a case could come from no other source. In law such evidence would go as the best evi dence availavle. In questions of gambling the evidence must necessarily be given by gam blers. If the case concerned the turf, it would have to come from jockeys, bookmakers and trainers. In fact, the truth about gambling can only be ascertained from gamblers. The three men who made the Davis affidavits says they are willing to go before any tribunal and make the same statements which they em bodied in the affidavits furnished Lydiard. It is hard to see just how the president of the league can ignore such proof. President Bryce is quoted today as saying that he thinks a mistake has been made in re ferring the matter to the national commission. It may have been a mistake, but it was the wish to get the matter before the highest court in baseball and have it passed upon by parties In no way concerned in the factional disputes of the American association. If it was a mis take it was one which can be rectified very easily. The charges against Owens are of too serious a nature to be mixed with the past troubles of the league. They have nothing to do with it, and any attempt to make it appear that this is the case is without justification. If Owens has been gambling on games it Is to the best interests of the league to find it out at once. If he la innocent he will have little trouble in proving it. It is a matter which Is of im portance to every clubowner in the league, no matter to what organisation or faction he may belong. For once Kelley is not the storm center. This affair was handled by Mr. Lydiard alone and without any assistance from the president manager. Attempts to make it appear that Kelley Is responsible will fall flat when the Investigation starts. Indianapolis, Ind July 28.President J. D. O'Brien, in an interview last night on the charges which have been formally prepared against Umpire Owens by the secretary of the Minneapolis ball club, that Owens had placed money up on the result of the game between the millers and the Colnmbus team, and was but the tool of a gambling trust to help them by contributing to the victory of the ehamps, declared that he considered the whole business pure rot. Mr. O'Brien said the Minneapolis team had been after Umpire Owens all season, and the present attack is but a continuance of its at tempt to get him thrown out of the association employ. "I will pay no attention to the charges until they are laid before me formally. The Minne apolis club will be forced to prove all its charges, and I think this will be impossible." Mr. O'Brien added further that he would Kerry Gaelic Eleven Will Tour .Ire land. Journal Special Service. New York, July 28.For the first time in the history of athletics a team of football play ers will be sent from this country to contest abroad. They will be the members of the famous Kerry Gaelic football team and will make a tour of Ireland to kick against the picked teams of the Emerald Isle in 1907. For this purpose Denis Buckley of this city, an enthusiastic Kerry man, has contributed 81,000. The Kerry men's team has been organised by Captain Tom O'Connor and the captain of County Kerry believes it is the best aggregation of Gaelic football players in the world. PBICB MAY BE DROPPED Northern Copper League Also Has Poor President.

"Baseball has been the greatest of all American sport, for the last thlrty-flve years for the simple reason that the element of gambling has been kept out of it," said the president of the American association, "and that baneful element shall not enter it as long as I can keep it out. I have perfect con fidence in my umpires and will back them until I am personally assured that they are not giving fair and Just decisions." Kansas City, Mo July 28.Umpire "Brick" Owens, who has been charged with having bet on the last series of games between Minneapolis and Columbus which were played last week, and who is now handling the indicator in the present local series of games, denied very em phatically last night that he had ever placed a cent on the outcome of a baseball game. He went so far as to say that he did not have any money to waste betting on ball games. Owens says that he does not know any gam blers in Minneapolis or any clique of persons who4e on ball games He says that the pres ent charges preferred against him by the Min neapolis Baseball association, thru Secretary Lydiard, are lies of the worst sort. The pres ent trouble, declares Owens, Is the outcome of Mike Kelley's personal grievances. Owens has had trouble with Kelley all season, and last week's occurrence was the third time that he and Kelley have ran amuck. "Mike Kelley has had it in for me all season, and I knew that the matter would come to a head sooner or later," said Owens last nght. "I am glad it has come so soon. Now that Kelley has taken up this thing he will have to go thru with it. I have a lawyer working on the case of where I was accused of tipping off the Toledo signals, and I think Kelley is mixed up in this. "I will work until I hear from O'Brien or Herrmann, but I think the affidavits will be proved false." BRYCE IS SOBBY Columbus Man Believes Minneapolis Management Has Made a Mistake. Columbus, ftsj* vi *_pdj- Ohio, Jul 2^-^.ldent X. Bryce of the Colnmbus club, which is indi rectly concerned in the latest American asso ciation scandal, in which Umpire Owen is the accused, last night wired President O'Brien and asked him to call a meeting of the club owners as soon as possible for the express purpose of taking up the charges made by. Secretary Lydiard of the Minneapolis club. In making this request, Bryce is simply notifying Lydiard and his associates that a big mistake, according to his opinion, was made in submitting the original testimony to the national commission. He holds that the American association club owners are capa ble of handling in a satisfactory way this case which concerns only the league and which he claims has no bearing whatever on organized baseball in general. Bryce would not say how much weight the deposition of the three Minneapolis men, whom he understands to be gamblerB, would have with" him* if""he gets"a "chance 'to pass Judg" I ment on the case. He did say Minneapolis CLUB WAS LOADED Ohio Sheriff Is Balked in Arresting Ball Team.

D.The government has declared war on persons along the Chamberlain Black Hills extension of the Milwaukee who, it appears, have taken out government licenses to sell liquor in some of the new towns in Lyman county, and then have engaged man to Slstanceliquor eddle to the railroad grading camps for varying from ten to twenty miles from the place where they have procured a license to sell liquor. The first man upon whom the heavy hand of the government has fallen is "Tom" Bunbury, who was fined 325 and costs, amounting in all to $60. This sum was paid and Bunbury was released from custody. The licenses of course cover the sale of liquor only in the places designated in the permits, and the practice of sending peddlers out is a clear violation of the federal statutes., Mclntyre Bros, of Milwaukee, who have the contract for constructing the new railroad grade, have been greatly annoyed by this practice of the "bootleggers."

JUDGES GALLED THE RACE OFF Streaky and Easy Winds Pre vented a Race in Interlake Contests. By The Skipper. The final race in -the interlake regatta at Mlnnetonka, which was to decide the champion ship for the Class A sloops, was postponed until this afternoon because of the inability of the boats to finish the course within the time limit of two hours and a half. The Cambria of White Bear was in the lead of the Mlnnetonka by about sis minutes when the race was called off. The wind was blowing about three miles an hour from a little south of southwest when the boats started at 3 15. Cambria got the best start, crossing the line thirty seconds ahead of the syndicate boat. The first leg of the course was to Crystal bay, and was a spinnaker run, or rather walk. The Mlnnetonka picked up ten seconds on the White Bear boat on this walk. Shortly after the boats rounded the buoy the wind began to fade away. A sephyr came up which filled out the Cambria's sails, but avoided the Mlnnetonka's cloth. The wind shifted around to the northeast, but was yery light. The boats took in their spinnakers and began to beat up to windward like snails. The Cambria rounded the Point Lookout mark four minutes and forty-eight seconds ahead of the syndicate boat. The Mlnnetonka gained eighteen seconds on the spinnaker walk to St. Louis Bay buoy. She gained seventeen more on the lope up to Crystal bay on the second time around. After that the wind began to get fluky, the Cambria getting most of the flukes. The Cambria had rounded Point Lookout buoy and the Mlnnetonka was making for it when the judges came within megaphone distance and announced the race off.

Brighton Beach Racetrack, July 28.One ot the liveliest scandals of the year was precipi tated yesterday when the hot favorite, Victoria B., was left at the post in the third race. The filly is owned by George Long, a western owner, and she wa. ridden by Jockey Koerner. The betting wa. "fishy" to say the least. She opened a fonr-to-flve favorite, and the money poured in on her in thousands. Despite the sub stantial play, her odds receded steadily in the betting, and it was noticeable that a certain clique of bookmakers would take any amount of money offered on Victoria B. When the start came the filly appeared t* break with the rest of the field, bat was imme diately np and merely cantered the rest of the way. The starter and his assistants report ed that Koerner broke with the rest of the field, bat that the bey puUed up at once. They shouted for him to go on, but Koerner Ignored their shouts. The steward** have taken the matter under in vestigation and will probe the race to the bot tom. While no demonstration was made at the time It is a sure thing that the jockey wlB so baled before the stewards. __ ICOMFANK EXTRACT OF BE EF Famous for 40 years as the meat eoncaotrated farm ef beef goodness.
