The only consolation that the local "fans" gleaned from the contest was that the Sen ators played good ball, but the champions must have done a "leetle bit" better, just enough to score the run necessary to win. The champions are playing in unusually good form at present, and a very high order of base ball is required to beat them out. The Senators' playing in the field yesterday was about equal to that of the champions, but at the bat the Chicagos hit more time ly with successful results. Case Patten was on the rubber for Wash ington and opposed to him was Virgil Gar vin. Patten has been doing good work all season, and although he lost yesterday's game, his work was good enough to win. Garvin held the Senators down to six hits, Wyatt Lee being the only batter to get over one hit off his delivery, and Catcher Bill Clarke hammered out a home run. This home run of "Bleacher Bill's" de serves special mention, as it scored all the runs credited to the Senators In the game. It all came about in the second inning, when Carey started off with a clean single over second and Wyatt Lee sent a safe one into left. Mr. Clarke, from Baltimore, then strutted to the plate in his usual confident manner, and on the second ball pitched by Garvin met the sphere squarely on the end of the bat. Up. up. up and out. out, out saikd the leather toward the center field fence, with Jones in full pursuit and Sena tor Bill chasing around the bases like Sprinter Duffy doing a hundred yards on the cinder path. Clarke got the best of the start and also the finish, beating Jones' throw to the plate, and, of course, sending Car? y and Lee across the plate ahead of him. With this good lead it looked as though Washington was going to score its first vio tory on the western trip, but in the fourth the champions unbottled the bothersome bir.gle and neat sacrifice, with the result that when the last man had been retired the score was tied. With one out, George Davis singled and Mertes was passed to first. Isbell tin ? came to the front with a double, scoring the two firxt named and a moment later crossed the plate himself on Tom Daly's timely single. With the score a tie the two teams strug gled along for the following four innings without results, but In the ninth, afur the Senators had been blanked, Chicago chased the one run necessary to win over the plate. Mertes began the trouble with a sin gle and went all the way to third as Isbell was being thrown out at first by Wolver ton. Tom Daly once more came to the front with a clever "pinch" hit, and Mertes trotted home with the winning run. Following is the score: CHICAGO. I WASHINGTON. K.H.O.A.E. K.H.O.A.E.

This is the third championship trophy which The Evening Star has given for the annual track meet of the Washington High Schools.

TONIGHT'S BIG RACE. Champion and Freeman Meet at Coli seum in Ten-Mile Event. The program for thi3 evening's racing at the Coliseum promises to be the best of the season on account of the fine condition of both riders. Albert Champion, the great French pace follower, and Howard Free man, the sturdy cyclist of Portland, Oreg. Last night In Baltimore Champion rode rings around Leander, taking both heats in unusually good time, and demonstrated that the Frenchman was never in better form than at present. His pace men are two of the cleverest in the business, and whoever wins tonight, the chances are that record breaking time will have to be made to score a victory. Last Monday night Freeman was In Pitts burg and had as his opponent Bennle Mon roe of Memphis. Monroe is one of the fast est pace followers of the country, but Free man was in unusually good condition and ran away from him from the start. When last here Freeman defeated Fenn In hollow Albert Champion. stvle. and at that time many remarks were made about the condition of the man from Oregon and the hope was expressed that a first-class man would be secured to race hlin. Managers Klosterman and Osgood have done considerable correspondence since that time, with the result that Free man and Champion were matched for to night. This pair met in Boston last week in a four-cornered event. Bobby Walthour and Nat. Butler being the other contestants. Champion won. but Freeman was the man who pushed him the hardest. Tonight the race will be a ten-mile heat^a flair. and the chances are that both men- will go at top speed from start to finish. In addition to this chief event, several amateur contests are carded and also an exciting motor machine race. This latter event Is positively a great attraction and bound to be close, furnishing lots of ex citement for everybody. The circus pro gram, that has been drawing large crowds since the opening Monday night, rounds out the evening's bill and furnishes plenty of entertainment for all the spectators. GRAVESEND RACES. Five Favorites in Front, the Bookmak ers Being Hard Hit. Five favorites and one second choice ?wept the board at Gravesend yesterday, and the lines were long behind the cash iers' boxes after every race. It was the worst day of the season for the layers, as every winner but one was at a reasonable price and was heavily played. Smoke was the only exception. She was a 5 to 2 on, and only the heavy bettors won by her vic tory. The Hanover stakes, for two-year-olds, was the day's only fixture, and It was won by the game colt Plater, who is much bet ter than his name, and who landed the vic tory largely on his own courage. David Gideon sold Plater a few days ago to A. L. Aste, and he probably got a good price for him. The colt has won every race he has started in since his first, and ran second in that. There waa no representative of Han over in tha Hanover stakes. Sergeant was a false favorite hijtiie betting, being played down to S to 5 at) the close, the fact that Michaels was to, rjde Plater having its effect on the pjjlqe. Africander, Wild Thyme ana Bernaxd were among the scratches, the withdrawals leaving a Held of ten to dispute the, honors. Plater was the flfat to show after the ^Lt,801 JPto 'ts ?nde. with Fort Wayne ?''g him hardi Sergeant was then in fourth place, but when the field swung around the bend for the finish line he had moved into second plpce.

Missouri Courts Deny Appeal. The suoreme court of Missouri has re fused to take immediate action in the In junction proceedings against Players Wal lace, Heldrick and Harper, pleaded for by the St. Louis National League club, and thus the American League club of that city has scored a decided victory. It is the opinion of those who claim to know that there Is no chance for these cases to come up now within the next two years, and so the St. Louis American League club Is assured of these players' sen-ices for at least that time. In fact, there is not much chance of the Missouri courts taking: the same view of the Nation al League contracts as did the Pennsyl vania court. The American League attor ney who presented the case in St. Louis re sorted to entirely different methods for a defense than did those for the Philadelphia American League club in the Lajoie case. The Lajoie case was lost principally be cause the attorneys for Connie Mack" were under the impression that they had an easy victory. Negligence and carelessness lost that case. In Missouri it is different. You have to show them out there. Croker'B Horse Finished Second. Richard Croker's Vendale at 1(X) to 1, with Sadgrove up. was second In the Vil lage handicap at Llngfleld Park, England, yesterday. "Skeets" Martin rode Raven's Flight, the winner of Hie Llngfleld plate, and was third with J. B. Leigh's Corca in the Spring two year-old plate. The latter event went to Major Loder's Cat Bird, ridden by "Clem" Jenkins, while the second horse was Sir R. Waldo Griffith's Merle colt, piloted by Danny Maher.

"Henman, the Mayor's Bootblack"?no body knows his last name?having lost $24, 000 since the racing season opened, Is back In the City Hall Park. New York, polishing shoes at 5 cents a shine. About his plays Herman said: "I'm about thirty years old. I had about $50 on the 4th of last July. It was a holi day and the hall was closed and I shot craps in a 'Joint' all day. Next day I went to the track with $250. I struck a run and won every day for a week. When the season closed here I had cleaned up $18,000. Then I tackled the pool rooms. "When the season opened up here this year I was $24,000 to the good in clean cash. My biggest losing was on Animosity on April 10, at Aqueduct. I dropped $10,00o. 1 dropped $1,000 next day and kept on losing. I got back to the city hall without a sou." ? ' 'i Canadian Oarsmen Start for Henley.

"Lou" Scholes. the sculler, who is also entered at Henley, left with them. Base Ball Notes. On to St. Louis today. Townsend will probably pitch. It will be noted that Griffith didn't pitch against the Senators. The question now is When will the first game be won on the western trip? Reports from Chicago say the umpire fa vored the home team, but that Is only to be i xpected. Tommy Corcoran Is to be released by Cincinnati. What a prize he would be for Washington. Manager Loftus is said to be after Mc Farland of Chicago for the outfield and he would strengthen the Senators wonderfully, being a good fielder and hitter and just the man to follow Ryan on the bases. Manager Comiskey may recall the laugh that Manager Loftus gave him when he asked for Cough! In before the season opened and refuse to part with McFarland. Comis key recommended Keister to Loftus. think ing Coughlin would be turned over to Chi cago, but the Washington manager had seen "Scranton Bill" play, and that was sufficient. When Jimmy Ryan walked to the bat In ? the first inning of Sunday's game at Chica go he was presented with an Immense bou ! quet of roses by his friends in the windy j city. The big crowd cheered lustily for I several minutes. Washington, Baltimore and the Athletics appear to have gone to the bad on the west ern trip, Boston being the only team to hold its true gait. No wonder the western clubs are stuck on themselves. The Athletics' defeat Monday cost them the leadership in the American League. Lajoie has a batting average of .577 per cent since joining the Cleveland team last week. Carney, the Boston right fielder, is the idol of the fans In the city of culture. He covers acres of ground and bats timely. "Dad" Clarke has been turned loose by Minneapolis. Nothing new for the former Giant who has played In almost every league in the country. O'Neil, who pitched the Phillies into a de feat Monday, was formerly a student at Villanova College. He was signed by St. Louis late last year and did excellent work under the name of Joyce. Cy Youngs victory Sunday at St. Louis was his thirteenth during this season. The unlucky number did not interfere with Cy in the least. As yet there Is no sign of a slump in Harry Bay's batting average. In every game in which he has played he has made a hit, and has yet to leave the field with his day's average under .333. Jimmy Williams, former third baseman of the Pittsburg team, now star second baseman of the Baltimore American League team, has fallen heir to one-fifth of $30,000 through the death of a relative. Jack O'Neill, the backstop of the St Louis club, will be retained. He was given his ten days' notice, but both of Donovan s catchers were In the hospital and O'Neill had to go into the game. Since then he has played good ball and regained his standing to the extent that Donovan thinks he is too good a man to let go. W ho says that the Indian cannot be civi lized? Over at Waynesburg, Pa., Monday the Carlisle base ball team broke up a game by going after the umpire in true college boy fashion. The score was even, 2 to 2, when the trouble broke out. and the red men, who objected to a decision, abused the umpire until out of breath, and then left tne field. r^!tCif??i^?nna' 'ormer'y of the Phlladel K, ?. et c"' w.ho accepted the terms of Milwaukee AMoclatlon team, arrived Mi! ^ y?and "tened with the Milwaukee W estern League club. having accepted advance money from Duffy.
