BASE BALL NOTES. ine grounas ariea up nicely last night, ami Manager Cantiiion had the Nationals working hard in practice this morning. Manager McAleer and his Brownies start a series with the Nationals tomorrow afternoon. Ladles' day. Any one after a first-class pitcher should not overlook Pfanmiller of Jersey City. He has already pitched seven games, six of which were shut-outs. Hayden batted for .286 in twenty-four j games for Rochester. The Boston Americans want to get rid of Pitcher Harris. He is the biggest twirler in the American League?but not the best. Sam Mertes won a game Sunday by a hit, steal of second and third and an inHeld play. He has proven a decided find for Minneapolis. Manager Hanlon has promised the Reds $1,IXX> if they finish In third place. They made a good opening bid for the coin Thursday. "Sox win by bunching hits." says a morning paper. Well, did anybody ever hear of the Sox winning any other way? They never get enough to have them scattered around much. Dave Fultz was asked the other day to describe his sensations when he was knock<ii cold In the collision with KlberfeVd Just before he retired from base ball. "There weren't any." replied Dave sententiously. "When I woke up I was in the hospital." It is neither Cornell nor Princeton that is In the lead for the college base ball championship at present, but the Brown team, which has not lost a game and which has beaten both Harvard and Yale. A Rochester critic points out that Duffy came from a big league team and has a tlrst division team at the bottom, while Kelley came from the same big league and put a tailender on top. Joe Kelley, ex-Cincinnati manager, got two hits in four times up in the game which gave his Toronto team the lead of the Kastern League. Jack Harper has been sent back to Chicago by Columbus. He failed to get in shape to pitch. The Yankees did better than merely win a game last Wednesday. They broke the hoodoo that Case Patten has had on them since me i law was pucnea in the American League ?New York Journal. There is not a regular on the Chicago American team who is hitting over .275, yet they are leading the league. Evidently they know when to hit better than they know liow. All the tough luck in base ball that ever was faded into insignificance compared to that which attended Deshon. the Cornell pitcher against Harvard. Deshon did not allow the Crimson batsmen to make a S1DI1 Il \r rv ?i <1 <vrvo H <U>tUi UJlliai fine An acq grade, artisti men the mc good dress. The Si X 4- -% xr i L a an CAU a MIS' _JeM,rSa hit.

Cannell ,250. Raymer .250. Crawford, who goes to Providence, hit for .22? in the National League. A note from New York says that McGraw is preparing for a Druislng finish in the National League race?for the umpires. In all the four games it wasn't a good day with the bat for any athlete on the two teams excepting Ganley, who wasn't fast enough to make good in Pittsburg. | He got four hits for hfs share. Wonder I what kind of ball players they are looking for In Pittsburg? A few Ganleys on the team now might Improve Its standing quite some.?New York Telegram. Pitcher McCloskey of the Philadelphia National league Club has been purchased outright by the Baltimore Club of the Eastern league. McCloskey pitched in the Eastern League last season as a member of the Providence team. The Phillies drafted him from the Omaha team in 1906. A benefit game has been tendered to the widow of "Chick" Stahl Thursday. June IS, which will be an open date In the American League schedule In Boston, and on that day the Boston club will play the Providence club of the Eastern league. ton* winter Pitcher Walslt of the White Sox has been feeding fat an ancient grudge. Griffith is alleged to have predicted last winter that Walsh would not be as good this season as last because no spitball pitcher couVd come right back and repeat. Therefore, when Walsh faced the New Yorks not long ago and shut them out without a hit he was actuated by a desire to convince Griff of the error of his reported prophecy. DOUG ALLISON THE FIRST. i Went Up Close Behind Bat Before Nat Hicks Bid. "Nat Hicks was a great catcher for the short period that he stood in the limelight of public opinion, but the press of the country is away off in giving him credit as the 'original' up-behlnd-the-bat man," said the veteran catcher Douglas Allison tn ? Star reDresentatlVe yesterday. "Not that I wish to claim any such record," said Allison, "for after all it does not carry any great weight or glory, but just the same I think figures will prove that I was among the first, If not the first, of any of the backstops to attempt that trick that was the mystery of the game. "X was a young mechanic at the time, following the stonecutter's trade In that sport-loving section of Philadelphia known as Manayunk. and while catching with the j 'Mechanics' of that place I began to be- , lleve It possible to get close up to the bat, so as to catch the ball, and thereby prevent so many runners from stealing second and third bases. I put my theory in action, and that was way back in I860. 1 nrSL irteu It, Ruiuk ua Clio aiuc Hi uider to allow the pitcher to throw them wide, but gradually worked over behind the batter, so as to fool him as well as the base runner. "My success in this style of play was remarkable, and naturally the talk of the place, until our games began to draw crowds simply because 'Allison was behind the bat.' This is not egotism, but the fact, and niy method soon ha,d lots of Imitators in and around Philadelphia, but, strange to say, few made success of it. "in 1SR7 T nlaved with the Gearys, the leading amateur team of Philadelphia, and there attracted the attention of that greatest of all base ball generals?Harry Wright. He induced me to go with him to become a member of the most famous American base ball team since the game began, the Red Stockings of Cincinnati, where I continued up under the bat with plenty of success. "Now my friend Nat Hicks did not break into the game at all until 1870, and could not nave sianeu 11 ui i yiay iur kiuch so many newspapers have been giving him credit,, and while disliking to cloud their stories, it seems right to correct the popular impression on this important epoch in the history of base ball." Allison talks amusingly of the many mishaps that came his way while up under the bat?how often he had been "put to sleep" by catching foul tips in the face by mistake, or winded by Asa Brainard's inshoots landing in his solar plexus. His hands give testimony, for, as he says, "they are monuments for work well done." They are but a mass of knotted and twisted Joints, showing what a torture the catcher of those days had to endure without any protection whatever. Allison also said that Charley Snyder was another who had made a success of catching behind the bat before the advent ? (Tomo onrl tlfn nt liarC ui mi an luiu uic u>>u t .? K, vtliviut who graduated from the local Creightons. Allison is now a clerk In the Post Office Department, still in good health, and is never so happy as when out with the youngsters of the Post Office Department nine. He is a close follower of the Nationals' chances, and is one of the few who are hopeful, minus the knocking. i J? il /111 J J m JttOUie ior lxio uiiuucu iuui. NEW YORK, June 3.?Announcement Is made by the touring board of the American Automobile Association of a part of the itinerary to be followed in the Glldden trophy tour, which starts from Cleveland July 12. The first night's stop is to be made at Toledo. Ohio; the second at South Bend. Ind.; the third at Chicago, and the fourth at South Bend again. The fifth night will be spent in Indianapolis, the sixth in Columbus, Ohio, while Pittsburg will be the next stopping place.

It seems safe to predict that James R. Keene, vice chairman of the Jockey Club, will again head the list of winning owners for 1!H)T. as he did a year ago. A few years ago it was quite unusual for a single owner to reach the $100,0U0 mark for a season, but with even a fair amount of luck Mr. Keene is quite likely to win $"J<X>,000 or more before the curtain is rung down at Aqueduct next November. His horses have earned to date something over j thanks largely to the victories of Superman in the Brooklyn handicap. Peter Pan in the Kelmont stakes and Colin in the I National Stallion stakes. Mr. Keene has a strong stable this year, and in all probability many other rich fixtures will be won by horses bearing the famous colors, white, blue spots. Peter Pan and Superman are candidates for the high honor of belr.g the champion threeyear-old of 11X17. Salvidere. the champion twn-vear-nld Inst venr- V.lr-rfirm^pT winner of the Futurity; Kentucky Beau and Fountainblue are about the only three-year-olds which have not started this year that are likely to deprive the Keene horses of the high place they now hold. It Is too early, perhaps, to pass judgment, but it is safe to say that Peter Pan and Superman will not be far from the top when the last race is run. There is hardly a question that Mr. Keene will be quite a* strong, if not stronger, with his two-year-olds. Colin, Sepoy and Masque are probably three of the best youngsters shown so far this season, and in Colin Mr. Keene has a colt that should make amends in part for the loss of Commando, not only as a great race horse, but as a worthy successor in the stud to perpetuate the blood of Commando and of Domino, the sire of Commando. Colin has a slight intirmity, which may or may not prove serious. If he trains on. however, it looks as if Mr. Keena had another great horse to compensate him for the loss in Quick succession of Domino, Commando and Sysonby, than which few, if any, greater horses have ever raced on the American turf. Colin has speed and courage, to say nothing of wellnigh perfect action, to recommend him, while In conformation he is of the highest type of the thoroughbred. That the death of Commando was a distinct loss to the American turf has been emphasized to a marked degree in the last two weeks by the sterling performances of Superman, Peter Pan and Coiin. Peter Pan more than redeemed himself for his defeats by Frank Gill and Dlnna Ken in winning the rich and historic Belmont stakes on Memorial day. He not only showed all the great speed for which he Is famous, but dispelled the illusion that he was lacking in courage and would not go a route. He la the kind of horse which seems to need plenty of work and plenty of racing, and with stake weight up his equal may not be seen this year. There have been so many upsets and surprises at Belmont Park that racegoers will welcome the change to Gravesend this week for the second spring meeting of the Brooklyn Jockey Club. There may or may not be any change for the better, but the hope Is there, and that counts for something. The big parklike inclosure at Belmont Park has a distinct attraction for many, but little old Gravesend appeals to those who like to see the horses over every foot of the journey, which is Impossible at Belmont Park.

YALE OARSMEN PLEASED AT THEIR FINE WORK The most delighted body of athletics at the recent American Henley regatta at Philadelphia was the Yale junior eight, which, after winning the race for second eights, rowed a second time and defeated the supposedly invincible Cornell juniors. It was at first announced that Yale would not row against Cornell, and some rather uncomplimentary things were said and mougm aDout me t-iis. tsut Yale's victory In the first race put an entirely different complexion on things. The Ells wanted to row again, and although this was in no way necessary. In deference to Cornell and Pennsylvania. Julian Curtiss, the Yale adviser, asked permission of Judge Irvine of Cornell and Wm. Innes Forbes of Pennsylvania, to enter this race also. Both of the 1?4-4-n? ~ .?

The Yale victory will do Cornell quite as much good as it will Tale. The opinion has been taking root too fast at Ithaca that Cornell crews are unbeatable, so this upset ought to do Courtney's men a world of good. Next to the surprise of Yale's fine work, the experts were much disturbed by the very poor work of the I'nlversity of Pennsylvania 'varsity eight. The Quakers were matched against the New York Athletic Club, the Bachelors' Boat Club of Philadelphia. and the Nassau Boat Club of New York. The Red and Blue oarsmen have been at work since the middle of January, and have had twice as much work on the water as any of the other crews. Yet the collegians had to take third place behind the N. Y. A. C. and tlje Bachelors. What makes the defeat of Penn all the more gall ing is me ract that the Bachelor eight is composed almost entirely of former Pennsylvania oarsmen, who are keeping up their rowing solely for pleasure. The graduates had their successors beaten oft from the start. Now the question is being asked: Are Penn's crews deteriorating? At any rate, the Quakers will have to develop pretty fast to make as good a showing at Poughkeepsie as thev did a year ago. Next year rowing will be installed at Princeton, and the Tigers will undoubtedly be out with one or two crews. Their flr.1t racing shell will probably be launched in the Schuylkill. The American regatta, being held on Saturday, will not interfere in any way with the Tigers' scholastic work, and on Uils account an extra good entry Is ex pecieu irom ligeriown. i ne orancning out of Annapolis will probably result in sending a crew up from the navy. Coach Rice of Columbia was at the regatta, and as the new coach Is an'advocate of lots of competition, it is not unlikely that Columbia will have an eight on hand next year. CANADIAN CUP DEFENDER. Description of the Seneca, Built by Herreshoff. BRISTOL. R. I., June 3.?Seneca, the Canadian cup defender, built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company, Is named after the once powerful tribe of Iroquois Indians which roamed the great fresh water lakes in their canoes. This is Designer Nat Herreshoflfs first trial at a boat for cup defense under fresh water conditions. The Seneca is of the true Herreshoff type of racer, and no attempt has been made to conceal her dimensions or lines from the public. Regarding her shape or sailing lines underneath, there are only one or iwo ieaiur's which are uepari ultra uoiu the Herreshoff productions in the small classes of a year ago. and these are In the after and forward ends. The crew of the Seneca will number seven, all victorious racing men, including Mabbit, the man who came to the front so prominently in the event of two years ago, when the Rochester Yacht Club took the Canadian cup. There are three candidates for challengers, which are being built In different places to meet the St-neca. These include two coming from Kurope and another. the Crusader, designed by Fife, the noted Scotch designer, which Is being put together in Canada. The dimensions of the Seneca are: Length over all, 4G feet; waterline length, 30 feet; breadth of beam, i) feet ti inches, and a draught of 7 feet. The new sloop will have a sail area of 1,150 square feet. ^ TITUS MAY BE BARRED. I .isntry ior .Diamond scuns may jje xvcturned by Henley Stewards. NEW YORK, June 3.?If it is true, as reported, that the Henley stewards have decided to return the entry of Constance S. TitU3 for the diamond sculls on the groun i that ills expenses are to be paid by contributions a great injustice will be done to the American champion. Although entered formally by the Nonpareil Rowing Club of Harlem, Titus was to pay his own expenses to England, and not a penny of it was to come from other individual or organization. Titus is a genuine amateur. His only fault Is that he refuses to compete against Frank Greer, the former champion, who is anxious to meet him afloat. But that his entry should be turned back for thnt nr for the mistaken idea that It is ex penses were to be defrayed by club contributions is a mockery upon the spirit of fair play. It is true that the entry of Titus is not indorsed by either the National Association uf Amateur Oarsmen or the American Rowing Association, the chief ruling bodies of this country, but then West of Philadelphia went to Henley last year without official indorsement other than the I'ndino Boat Club of the Quaker city, and if West, why not Titus? RACE OF MOTOR CYCLES. An Endurance Contest This Season Cnnmc A Pellrorl tJCCXUO ?XOOUlbU( j NEW YORK, June 3.?That there will be I an endurance contest in conjunction with the annual motor cycle meet this year seems assured. So many changes have been made in motor cycle construction and so many new aspirants are in the field that a contest js strongly indicated. Under the rules, the course must not lie less than 250 miles, and whether Baltimore or Providence is chosen as the objective point, the run, taking New York as the starting point, would be through an interesting country. A ' wide detour would be required to cover enough distance if the run goes to ProvlI dence. The first annual endurance contest I Vonr VnrL* to fn m hriritre.

PHILADELPHIA. June 3.?Capt. Rot>ert C. Folwell of the University of Pennsylvania foot ball team In an interview dealing with the foot ball prospects and situation at Pennsylvania admitted that the Quakers and Yale are trying to get together in a game next fall upon one of the open dates of the season. There Is little doubt that Pennsylvania is anxious for this contest and that Vale men in Philadelphia, almost to a man, would like to see it played. Folwell said: "My only regret is the scarcity of big games.
