CI.KVKLAND, Ohio. July 20-Rain and
darkness put an end to the game between
the Naps and Nationals at the end of the
twelfth inning yesterday with the plate
still uncrossed and with the fans warm
and weary from cheering the great plays
with which the simp abounder from start
to finish. Both Smith and I.lebhardt pitched
m isterful ball, the honors really going
to the Washington twlrler. for he was In
more tight places than the iron man. All
in all. It was the greatest game seen on the
home grounds this season.
On- precedent was set us when, for the
first time since he has worn a Cleveland
uniform, faithful old Bill Bernhard was
hissed by a home crowd. Berny's lapse

when he was doing coaching duty at thi-d
wtth one out. Hinchman doubled and raced
to third when Aitiz^r momentarily Juggled
O'Brien's fast grounder over second.
Horny pushed Hinchman along toward the
plate, where he was nailed by yards on
Aitizcr's quirk throw to Heydon As it
developed Hinchman could have scored on
Frank Delehanty's long fly to Hickman,
which immediately followed, but which
uniivr the cirrunistancca was the third out.
There were other near runs, but none
quite so close as that. Toward the close
of the same, when it seemed sure that one
run W"iild be enough to wtn. the twirling
of Smith and Liebhardt was a delight to
the eye. They worked as if the world's
championship depended on the outcome of
this particular battle, and each pitcher was
wildly c-heered .at the end of every Inning
he walked to the bench after having
pulled his team out of a tight hole by his
own superb work.
Fielding Spectacular.
The fielding, too. was spectacular in the
extreme. In the third Ginley lifted to
Frank Delehanty and Altlzer grounded to
Stovall. Jim DelPhanty got a pass. Hinchman
picked up Anderson's single and nail*d
Del off second with a throw that traveled
like a rifle shot. Jim was Just hanging off

when Turner put the ball on him. It was a
marvelous play.
In the Sixth Jim Delehanty grounded to
Turner. Anderson singled, Hickman likewise
singled. NI1I lifted to Hlnchman. The
double st?-al was well executed, advancing
Anderson to third and Hickman to second.
Shipke shot a savage grounder over third,
but Bradley made a whirlwind stop and

and O'Brien singled and Smith, obeying
<"anHllon's signal, parsed Delehanty, filling
tiie bases. It was .good judgment, for I^iebhardt

out at first.
Bradley reached third with two out in
the eighth, and the fans almost scuttled

Smith when Stovall came up. The big

The game looked to be all over for the

a Texas leaguer hack of Stovall for two
bases, and went on to third wh?n O'Brien

Notes of the Game.
"I am sorry to see T.arry'a team slumping
rl<ht now. for now is the Nap#' time to go
out and grab that flag." said Cantillon to
day. "The 80* are surely on the slide,
however brilliantly they may play now
and then. Walsh and Smith are about the
only pitchers who can beat anybody dui
the left-handed batting teams. Coraray's
men have played themselves off their feet
in my opinion and are liable to get many
a beating on the eastern trip. If Larry
could only keep ahead of the Athletics and
Tigers he would soon be ahead of tha
White Sox. too."
Charlie Hickman had a long ta'k with
Somers and Kilfoyle today. After the conference
Hickman gaid: "It was just a
pleasant chat, but I don't mind saying that
if I am to leave Washington I want to Join
the Naps. I will go to Chicago if there is
a dial, but my preference in Cleveland."
E'rner Flick made the [>ositive declaration
to The Star correspondent last n:ght that
he would quit the Cleveland club next
Tuesday night. There Is no trouble nor il!feeling.
nothing of that kind at all," said
the great outfielder. "I am just simply
through with base ball, that is all." Elmer

The loss of Flick is bound to be ? staggering
blow to the Naps. He is the only
man outside of Larry w-ho has been batting

and Lajote out of the game for an indefinite
period the Naps' present outlook is

Printers Noh Out Atlantic?.
> "Chunk" Wheatley, being In good form,
handily carried the government printing
office team to victory yesterday afternoon
against the strong Atlantic aggregation,
the game having resulted in the score oi
3 to 2. Owing to a late start, the game
lasted but five innings.
Wheatley was complete master of the
situation throughout, having an abundance
of speed, and his control was of the best
sort. The hard-hitting Atlantics only could
solve him for three safe ones, two of which
were hammered out by Catcher O'Neill,
and, strange to say, the latter'a drives
counted for a> couple of bases each. Murray
served ud Duzzliner ball also, but he was
very erratic at times, having walked sit
men and made four wild pitches.
McCarthy on third for the Atlantics pulled
down a hot liner in first round that certainly
was a corker, and Johnny Farrell In the
left garden for the winners, got under two
flies that looked good for safeties. The

Ninth Boys Win Fine Game.
One of the most interesting and exciting
games played in .this league this season
was witnessed yesterday, when the Ninth
Street boys, with Moreland's batting, defeated
the First by the score of 5 to 2.
"Dolly" Gray was on the rubber for the
winners, while Gordon opposed him, both
pitching excellent ball. The score stood 2
to 1 In favor of the Ninth boys until the
seventh Inning, when First tied the score.
In the eighth Conner, the first man up,
shot one into safe territory and stole second.
Quantrelle and McDonald died, but
Stuckert knocked one to Harris, which was
too slow for the inftelder to handle In
time, reaching first safely, and he also
stol* second. Moreland walked to the plate
and took a good swing on one of Gordon's
shoots, and when the ball was (1 'Id.'d to

and Conner and Stuckert had crossed the
plate. Moreland made a break for Jhird

Several scribes spent columns in
telling how the Tigers were going to take
every game. One told of a grand barb?cue
that was to be held for the hungry tigers.
Another quoted Hugh Jennings as saying
the locals would take every game?something
that Jennings never, never do.?a. Still
another had an Interview with Cantillon,
telling how It feels to be eaten alive.
The Senators read all this and held a
consultation In the Orlswold House corridor.
They were furious
"Cinches are we." said Tom Hughes,
reading, "well watch us. I'll pitch my head
off to beat em. I'll show them If Joe will
let me get Into the box.''

"I heard them talking," said Umpire Billy
Evans, who was In the corridor at the
time, "and I'll venture to state that they
nerved themselves up to that pitch that
they p'.ayed 40 per cent better ball."
Some day a few people around town are
going to get tired of putting Jennings In

Harry Nlles. the St. Louis Browns' best
hitter, says that In addition to having a
good eye, a batter must have courage and
not flinch when the ball comes whlszlng
over the plate. "Always get your base on
balls, If It is possible," he says. "Don't
swing at the ball Just for the pleasure of
hitting it. If it doesn't come right for you
to hit it, let It go. A base on balls helps
as much as a hit In starting off. The main
idea In batting?that is, to help toward victory?Is
to get to first base, no matter how.
With men on bases, it is time to hit, but
even then do not fall to take a base on balls
If you can get It. The next batter Is good
enough to be depended upon. If he Isn't he
I ought not to be on the team."

CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 20?"We
haven't got very much of a base ball club
right now," said Manager Joe Cantlllon of
i the Nationals today, "but we will have one
by and by. I have set up my standard as
10 wnat l want In Washington on the basis
of my outfield when It Is Intact. I wouldn't
trade Jones, Clymer and Ganley for ajiy
other outfield In either league. Every
man is a fielder, a hitter, a base runner,
an aggressive ball player and a quick
thinker. When I get an Infield like that
and two more pitchers I will be reajdy to
give Washington people the kind of base
ball they so richly deserve.
"I want a great tirst baseman, a sort of
Hal Chase and Jiggs Donohue rolled Into

and is playing winning ball; there never
wa3 a finer fellow than Charley Hickman,
but their first base playing Isn t quite what
I want or quite what we must hav? If
are going to get up Into the first division.
Niil Is trying hard, but I want a harder
hitter down there at second.
"Altlzer at short I regard as a first-class
player. He majies errors, but errors do
not count with me. He goes after everything
In sight, he is amenable to advice,
he bats timely and runs the bases intelligently.
He will do.. Shlpke's fielding will
electrify t.ie fans down in Washington. 1
only wish he could bat as well ?? h*

ing Smith, Hughes and Falkenberg are doing.
I have asked too* much of Tom
Hughes. He is so willing and so eager for
work that he gets too much of it. I am
going to ask more of the other twirlers
after this.
"We haven't had as good a trip as we
expected, but we have had our share of
tough luck. With Jones ajid Clymer in the
game we would have won two or three
that wo have lost, including. X think I may
say, that twelve-Inning game yesterday.
When we get home and can have our regular
outfield In line we can win as many
games as we lose, and probably more.

Washington a team of ball players that
will play the game as I think it should be
played. Then if we don't win, I will be
ready to admit that my way is the wrong
way. Until then i expect to be handicapped
to some extent. Just now to my
way of thinking the Athletics look like the
pennant winners of 11)07, but any team
with four pitchers doing the work 1'iank,
Bender, \ addell and L>ygert are now doing
is bounu to look mighty good."

A Euchee Team That Has Never Been
Prom the Kiinans Cltr SW?r.
Euchee Mission at Sapulpa has developed
the finest basket ball team In Indian Territory.
The team Is composed of full '
blood Indian girls, and they have been
trained by C. L. Garber, superintendent
of the mission school? who Is an experienced
basket ball coach.
This team has never been defeated. Match
games have been played with the crack
teams of Tulsa. Olaremore, Rrlstow. Sapul
pa. Okmulgee and Stroud, but the Indian
girls have, always won. j
These Indian girls are all scholars in the ^
Euchee school. They are excellent stu- ]
dents. The natural aptitude of the Indian 1
for athletics crops out in their basket ball J
play. Their strongest point is In team 1
work backed up by incredible swiftness
of foot. In the Sapulpa match game these
girls took the record for making a goal 1
from the toss-up without ever letting the 1
opposing team touch the ball or allowing ,
the ball to touch the floor.
The fame of this team has spread to .
such an extent that already games have )
been scheduled for next fall for a Mis- l
sourt-Kansas tour. 1
These Indian girls represent some of the
best and purest blood of the Creeks and J
the Euchee clan. The Eucbees have main- ,
talned their Indian clan with greater care
than any other band of Indians, and there
ia less of foreign blood In it. ,

NEW YORK, July 20.?A big crowd went
to Brighton Beach track yesterday expecting
to see the world's record for a mile
lowered In a special event scheduled by the
management for this purpose. But there
was no such good luck. There were only
three starters, McCarter and Kentucky
Beau, three-year-olds, and the four-yearold
mare Cressina, who carried special
weights. McCarter. with Miller up. was a
prohibitive favorite at 2 to 7, while Cressina
ruled second in favor at 0. with Kentucky
Beau at 7. At the start Kentucky
Beau, ridden by E. Dugan, shot to the
frnnt lillt" a C tha nana lia out true ?>/-? fact
enough. Miller took his mount ino the
lead In the backstretch and opened up a
big gap. Cressina ran over Kentucky Beau
at the beginning of the far turn and then
went after McCarter, but the latter was
much the best and galloped home an easy
winner by four lengths. The crowd was
visibly disappointed when the time, 1:3B,
was hung out. The fractions were as follows:
0:11 .{-5, 0:23 4-5, 0:35 4-5, 0:47 -'-5.
1:00, 1:12 4-5. 1:26 1-5 and the mile in l:3i?,
there being a marked slow down by the

him down he breezed home two lengths In

to 5, by a head. Orbicular received a badlooking
ride from Radtke. who kept him In
the ruck on the rail until the head of the
stretch was reached, where he went to the
whip when it was apparently too late. The
stewards asked Radtke to explain, and the
boy said his horse tried to run out all the
way. The time was 1.46.

First Mason was a noted race horse three
years ago, and was only beaten a head by
Ram's Horn for the ttrighton handicap last
season. He was sold after the latt race
yesterday for $T??X?. He was entered to bo
sold for that sum by "Boota" Durnell. who
recently claimed him out of a selling race
from C. E. Rowe for $2,300. During the
time First Mason was in Durnell'* stable
the horse had worked well, and that clever
turfman thought that with only ninetythree
pounds he would certainly beat the
thoroughbreds that opposed him. Durnell
accordingly backed First Mason very heavily.

hind some low-priced platers, he becunie so
disgusted with the horse that he sold
him Immediately after the race to Jack
Bennett for his entered selling price.
