CHICAGO. 111.. September 10.?Amir?
tvar and kicking, liard lighting and all- .
round strife of the most joyous kind.
Washington fell again before the Sox yeslerday,
getting shut out in a game that
fnly went to show the greatness of young
Walter Johnson, even though he was defeated.
"Wonderful Walter" held the Sox
to three hits, gave only one ticket and
kept them guessing at all stages. I.uck
tv as.against him?luck and a combination
of one two-bagger with two succeeding
plays that advanced the runner from second
base to home station. Walsh was
rapped much harder and gave three
passes, but the luck was all his. and nobody
scored on his delivery, though they
kept coming near it, very near It. Twice
Washington runners nerished at the plate.
I ant] big Ed was kept jumping contlnuJust
before tlio battle Mother Cantillon
laid off Delehanty for the balance of
the trip, under full salary. Joe's action
Is one of the strangest ever recorded in
the annals of base ball. He has decided
to deliberately weaken the Washington
team so .as to give all the western clubs
an equal whack at him. If Delehanty
cannot play in Cleveland, he will not be
played in any other city. Rather than
give Cleveland such an advantage, Canlillon
takes Delehanty out of the line-up
for keeps, and will go against Chicago.
Detroit and St. Louis with iiis weakened
forces. "It's a fair deal to everybody,"
Said Cantiilon. "and also a rather emphatic
protest against Ban Johnson's ,
Nationals Fought Hard.
Although some scoffers might say that
Ibis looked like tossing games, there was i
nothing of the lay-down spirit visible In (
r^the Nationals yesterday. They fought !
?jike wild men all the way, and a per- j
sonal battle between I'nglaub and either ! j
Atz or Walsh was narrowly averted. The j
>>5ox were desperately determined to win. ]
and Cantillon's men did their hest to stop I
"Hibm. While the crowd, of course, was 1
.pulling hard for the Sox, they could not
tioip cneering ine worn 01 trie visitors, ami (
^Walter Johnson was pronounced the ,
grandest young pitcher of the season.
/ Only one run came over in all the tur- (
~Suoll of the afternoon. That one run.
"hearing a Chicago label, slipped over in ?
_4he seventh round. John Anderson, who
is still full of vengeful thoughts concern- !
Jrig Washington and Cantillon and never j
lets a good chance for gloating get away,
started the Sox half of this spasm with a
-murderous biff into left, which ran along
jibe wall and netted John two bases. Davis
"grounded to Freeman, who had his choice
?either to step back to first and stop
the batter or throw to third and get <

chance to cheek Anderson, who *
lugged in the only run just as the ball
Settled In "Gabby's" hands.
, Outside of that one run, the Sox never <
?*inriussed Johnson's hair. He had them '
jumping through hoops and climbing cur- I
rant bushes all afternoon, and his field !
liad hardly any difficult chances to con- ,
The Nationals kept hopping on Walsh. 5
-but always hopped off again before they 1
r< ould realize on their assets. Freeman
and McBride made successive hits In the
second?and got no farther. In the fourth j

doing an Ajax-defyig-the-footlights stunt. 1
Foolish. Freeman.
With no one out in the fifth, Freeman '
singled and McBride sacrificed. Street
^fanned. and Johnson cricketed one '
-through the apex of the diamond. Freeman
took a plunge for home, although
J>avis was holding the ball on second.
Naturally. Jerry came as near the base
as a monkey would get near a class In !
logarithms. They eraced him with great i
slaughter. In the sixth Ganley singled 1
and began to Salome up and down the j
, line. The ball came that way a moment 1
? Two passes and a hit by McBride filled
the sacks, with two out. in the seventh,
bift Johnson, though great in pitching,
eould not deliver as a batter, fanning S
beautifully. I
The big noise of the day came off
In the eighth. With one gone, Ganley
drew a pass and Unglaub singled. Cates,
subbing for Delehanty, had been an absentee
with the stick, and Cantillon sent
up Warner. Jack hit right at Walsh, who
. -wheeled and trapped Ganley off the line.
.After much dancing Bob was run down.
Unglaub. meanwhile, had come round to ~
third, and now. seeing the plate unguarded,
broke for home. Walsh got in front
of him and they crashed together mightily.
Walsh was sent rolling over and
oyer, but held the ball. As soon as he
."got up. big Ed wanted to fight. Before
lie could get near Unglaub, Jakey Atz
-< ut in and btgan to bluster. Unglaub de- 1
elded to take a punch at Jakey's nose, it 1
[being impossible to miss it, but several
h'layers split them out. and the noise died
iclown. Neither side did anything further,
rabd so the battle ended,

Treasury by defeating Grace yesterday
Afternoon obtained a good lead for the
hampionship honors of the amateur postleuson
series. The contest resulted in the
?core of 7 to 1. and was pulled off at
American league Park.
The church cam boys were outclassed
throughout and it was plain after the
second that the Money Counters were to
idd another victory to their string. The
ridding of both sides was on a par. hut
,t was at the bat that the departnientaiists
showed thetr superiority.
Hester. Treasury's best twirler and
practically the only man to be depended
an to win games, again mounted the
hurling block ami as usual ills work was
k-ery creditable. He allowed but five hits,
ill of which were widely scattered. Seven
men were put down by him through the
strikeout route awl only two men received
tree passes. Burch was in the pit for the
losers and was not hit for such an awful
lot of bingies, but being erratic bis work
was not to be considered extra fine. Five
men were given fre^ trips and he hit one.
Grace would have been blanked had it
not been for a wild heave of O'Neile in an
attempt to throw a man out at second.
There was plenty of steam behind the

At a meeting of the amateur base ball
|j commission at the National Guard Ar'
| mory last night the Twining Athletic
j Club was awarded first place in class
B of the post-season series. It was decided
to give the bunting to the Independence
Leaguers because the schedule
; had been concluded and they were leading
in the percentage column.
The final game between the Twining and
j Nesco teams resulted in a tie score. Had
' this game been decided there would have
| either been a tie-up for the honors or
Twining would have had a larger lead.

I they won on the field, because they did
not appear on scheduled time. President
Bolglano refused to allow the proteBt.
The commission decided to start all the
remaining games at 4:45 o'clock, so that
a full nine-inning game might be played.

I'nmlrcs have this spason been abuser
by players, managers, owners, the press
and the funs more than was ever knowr
in the history of the game. This, in view
of the time and thought given to thf
business by the executives of the different
leagues, makes it plain that therf
should be a prep school for all aspirants
before they are allowed to appear on thf
field with credentials. We nominate Jach
Sheridan as principal of the school.
Here is a stunt in batting that should
not pass unnoticed: Pokorny. the Toledc
recruit, was farmed out to Webb City, lr
the Western Association, to rest his burr
arm. In eleven consecutive games Ik
made twenty-six hits in less than fift\
times at bat. Of these twenty-six hits
lour were iiome runs, five three-baggers
and six two-baggers. A total of fiftylour
extra bases were made on twentysdx
hits?an average of over two bases tc
a hit.

J.ONDON, September 19.?With a match
with Tommy Burns In Sydney, Australia,
in November all but clinched. Jack Johnson,
the colored scrapper, yesterday began
negotiations to suspend his music hall
contracts so that ho may sail as soon as
possible for Sydney.
Matchmaker Hunter, representing the
Australian syndicate that is trying to
bring the men together, lias cabled Johnson's
manager, Fitzpatrick, that Burns
has agreed to tight for a guaranteed purse
of $35,000, to be divided on a 60 and 40
per cent basis. The Sydney syndicate is
willing to do this, and as Johnson is perfectly
satisfied with the arrangement the
match is as good as made.
Johnson cabled Sam Langford in Boston
that he will return from Australia in plenty
of time to tight him according to their
agreement. Fitzpatrick is now arranging
for the trip to Australia. He expects to
have Johnson back In L<ondon by January
to renew his music hall engagements.

BOSTON. September 11).?F. B. Alexander
and H. H. Hackett, national champions
in tennis doubles, defeated M. J. G.
Ritchie and J. G. Parke, the English
players, at the Longwood Cricket Club
courts yesterday afternoon in the
doubles division of the Davis cup preliminary
series now in progress in this city.
The Alexander-Hackett victory was
scored in three sets out of four, the score
being 6?3, U?6, 7?5 and 6?1. It was
generally expected that Alexander and
Hackett, who had far more experience as
a double, team, would win easily over
Ritchie and Parke, who had played together
in doubles very little prior to
their arrival in this country two weeks
The match. however, wa? not as easy
for the Americans as had been anticipated,
and at the end of the second set witli the
store one all, matters looked decidedly
dubious for the Americans. The loss of
the second set to the Englishmen, the only
set Alexander and Harkett have lost In
doubles in years, clearly disturbed both
men, and especially as it followed a
phenomenal volley on the part of the
Hackett and Alexander had now the
opening set 6 to 3, and had two games on
the second set when the Ritchie-Parke
combination made one of the most brilliant
and prolonged rallies against such a
nair as Hackett and Alexander as was
ever witnessed on an American tennis
The invaders from across the water not
only won six straight games, giving them
the set 0 to 2, but kept up their winning
streak in the third set until the games
were three love, in their favor.

That was the turning part of the
match. After a ten-minute Intermission
following the third set. the players returned
to the court and Alexander and
Hackett. by taking that set R to 1. ended
the match in short order, bringing to
a conclusion some of the most brilliant
tennis over witnessed In this country.
Hackett and Alexander started out playing
a net game, hut in the second set
discovered much to their surprise that
they were being outplayed at their own
game as soon as Ritcliie and Parke were
fairly under full steam. After that disastrous
second set the Americans paid
more attention to their back field work
and thereby won out.

Jersey Experts Will Meet Today at
Garden City for Trophy.
GARDEN CITY. X. Y., September 10.?
Play In the United States Golf Association's
tournament for the national amateur
championship yesterday progressed
to the final stage. With the close of the
day's work on the links here only two of
the original 1.13 starters survive. These
are Jerome D. Travers, Montclair, N. J.,
and Max Belir of the Morris Country Club, ,
In the same state. The two Jerseyites
meet in a thirty-six-hole final match
round today.
The match between Travers and Travis
was an eye opener for the big gallery <
from start to finish. In the first eighteen
holes there was scarcely a mistake ;
made by either player and only three glaring
golfing errors could be recorded dur
ing the day. The men played in par fig- :
ures for the first five holes and every shot
was made with clock-like regularity.
1 There was no hesitation by either man i
when his turn to play came around and
at the end of the first half of the match 1
Travis had the champion one down on
the eighteenth green. ;
The afternoon play was for the greater 1
part in favor of Travis, but when the
young champion reached the thirty-second
hole and found himself two down he
braced up and to the end of the match he
played all the golf of which he is capable.
He simply mowed down the vet ran's i
lead, taking the last four holes in the
grand golf and finishing up with three to .
six on the home green, the veteran's ball
having rolled Into a sand trap and the
strokes being approximated.
The other pair. Behr and ITerreshoff. ;
had a close contest all the way, which
eventually had to be decided on an extra
hole, Behr winning the additional hole by
3 to 4, and the match by 1 up. Sum- .
Jerome P. Tray era, Monti lair. X. .T., beat
Walter J. Travis. Garden City. 2 up; Max II. j

for (the mill. At the weighing time Britt

The semi-wind-up was a hard battle. It
was between two Washington colored
men. Kid Gordon and Kid Peyton. In the
second round, after some hard milling,
Peyton knocked out Gordon.
Jack "Twin" Sullivan, the New England
heavyweight, has turned down the offer
made to him by Jim Jeffries to fight Sam
I^angford. the colored fighter, a twentyfive
round battle at the Jeffries Club of
Los Angeles. Ca!., the latter part of this
month. Sullivan has been made several
offers by club managers of California to
fight Langford, but he has always sidestepped
the offers. Sullivan says he will
fight Hugo Kelly of Chicago.
Jimmy Coffroth, the fight promoter of
California, has practically arranged a
match between Paekey McFarland. the
Chicago fighter, and Battling Nelson, the
lightweight champion, to be fought at
Colma. Gal.. Thanksgiving day afternoon.
The only thing that hinges on the bout
being clinched for good is a percentage of
the gate receipts, which Nelson is holding
out for. Coffroth expects to sign Nelson
in forty-eight hours. They will battle
for twenty-five rounds if they get together.
T. E. Jones, manager of Billv Panke. the
middleweight champion, has arrived in
Chicago. In speaking of Papke's fight
with Ketchel, Jones says that Papke had
Ketchel beat before the bout started. Billy
walked up to Ketchel in his dressing room
and said: "Well, Stanley, I am going to
give you the worst licking of your life. I
am going to slug with you every inch of
the way, and when I get you going I will
put you out."
Freddie "Welsh, the English lightweight,
and Maurice Sayers, the Milwaukee lightweight,
will be matched at Eos Angeles,
