McAIeer and His Pitchers. . BY J. ED GBILLO. When a ball club sends out a scout to search for material It must have confi dence in bis judgment, and it was because the local club t;ad confidence in Mike Ka hoe that 8cotty Ingerton, the third base man of Altoona, was not purchased. It seems that McAleer got a tip on In gerton, and wired Kahoe Jo look him over. Then he wired President Noyes that Ka hoe would call on him regarding the deal, and to buy Ingerton if Kahoe said so. Kahoe came here, and he gave his opin ion of Ingerton, which fcas to the effect that he would not recommend his pur chase. This settled the deal there and then, and it still remains to be seen whether Kahoe was right or wrong. Just as soon as Herman Schaefer re turns to the team, Clyde Milan will be given a rest. His injury from the colli sion with Oessler was by no means mend ed, and Manager McAleer does not want to take any chances at injuring him. Bill Otey, the left-hander secured from Norfolk a few weeks ago, will make but an occasional appearance on the rubber this season. McAleer figures on develop ing Otey for next season. Otey was down with typhoid fever this spring and he has not yet entirely recovered from the effects of the disease. But he has shown Mc Aleer enough to convince him that he has ability and he will be allowed to take things easy in the hop* of having him in good shape next spring. Moyer, so McAleer figures, will be a great pitcher In the spring. Because of his youth and style of working he will be apt to win a lot of games early in the season. "I feel pretty safe about my pitching staff. With what I have now and Tom Hughes and a few youngsters added I think that we will be in good shape so far as pitchers are concerned" said Mc Aleer. Bob Groom will do the pitching this afternoon and Alnsmith will be at the re ceiving end. Wednesday's game will be called at 3 o'clock to give the Detroit team a chance to catch a train for Boston. There will be no chance to blame Ty Cobb with deliberately spiking opposing players from today on. Cobb will have a pair of Joe Quirk's spikes attached to his shoes this morning, and as these make it Impossible for a player to be cut even though he get struck with them at full force, Cobb will not be charged with trying to cut down players in the future. Bush and several other Tigers have been wearing the spike which they pro nounce a big improvement over the old one, and now that Cobb is convinced that they will serve the purpose he will adopt them. The fact that President Xavin of the Detroit club has threatened to fine every one of his players $500 who make a trip to Cuba to play ball may not . make any change In the players' plans. One of the party said yesterday that they would make the trip. "What can the club do If twelve of us go to Cuba to play right after the season opens. If we are fined we will not report in the spring, and 1 guess that would settle the matter. "It seems absurd and unjust to object to us going to Cuba. We go right after the season is over and spend about two weeks there. That certainly will not in jure us. So far as it being detrimental to our future, why Just look at the Athletics; they made a trip to the coast last winter and it does not seem to have affected their work in the least." Though tbe Detroit team has scored more runs this season than it has in the past three, it is in third place, instead of holding the lead. "Why, we have been beaten 11 to 9 and scores like that this year, when heretofore If we scored three or four runs we were sure to win," re marked Sam Crawford. "W? don't seem to have any trouble scoring runs, but the other fellows manage to get more somehow or other. This base ball propo sition Is puzsllng, Indeed. The Cubs won the pennant one year without having a .300 batter. So did the White Sox, and then they Jumped into the world's series and hit nothing but two baggers. There is no way to explain these things." Walter Johnson was far from being hinuelf. He did not have his usual speed and he did not work as smoothly as uau#l. apparently laboring all the way. It was an off day for Walter, and he EUSSiMr* h" ? -* ??,*" "oiT likely b. seen in baVl 7l??8 av.W^?ir^ of <?ff?rence In a Srn?nt n, ^ her.

In the second inning no drove a long fly right over Cobb s head, but the latter turned and ran, and turned in time to make the catch. In the ?xtn he gave Cobb another chase Into deep left center. Works' wildness and inability to field his position properly gave the locals a lead in the first inning, when they should have been blanked, for Works had a chance to make a double play, which he did not take advantage of. Milan walked to begin with and Delehanty gave Killifer a life, Milan taking third. Elberfeld s grounder to Works could have been turned into a double, but Works only got Elberfeld. Conroy's scratch single over Works' head scored Milan and sent Kil lifer to third, from where he scored on McBride's tap to Works, who failed to hold Killifer on the bag. Four bases on balls in a row and Mc Bride's two-bagger, followed by Gessler's sacrifice drive, netted the locals four more in the fifth. The Tigers scored one in the third and three in the sixth on passes and hits, and they started the ninth with two safe drives, getting men on second and third before any one was out. yet failed to score when a base hit would have tied matters up.

Low. As it is now certain that the British Isles will take the long Journey, the Americans are striving to get a home team together. As the matter now stands, Beals C. Wright and Maurice E. McLaughlin are said to stand ready to go for this nation in support of the challenge sent earlier in the year. Important official declara tions in this respect are said to be forth coming. and it is hinted that if the Ar rangements go through the American team will be the strongest ever sent for the cup, and with a good chance of suc cess.

However, whether Donovan will receive any extra coin next year or not. the Boston leader is more than satisfied. President Taylor, who has beccome known in the world of base ball as the lightning-change artist when It comes to releasing managers, captains and sta players, is also pleased to know that,*m has Donovan s contract for 1911 safely tucked away.

WITH LANG TONIGHT Australian Champion and Big Californian in Ten-Round Bout in Gotham. NEW YORK, August 16.-BIU Lang, the Australian champion, and big Al Kaufman meet at the Fairmont A. C- to night in a ten-round bout. The contest is in a sense a preliminary to decide upon the better man of the two for a championship contest with Jack Johnson, and one of the biggest crowds ever seen at the Fairmont club la ex pected. The interest centers In 1-ang. who has never been seen in action In this part of the world. He Is "the unknown" that Hugh Mcintosh and Jim Corbett offered when people started to look around for a man to wrest the championship from Johnson. Corbett has tried out the Aus tralian and says he will do. So doea Tommy Burns, who has been in a twenty round battle with Lang. Then again the match has an International flavor. Kauf man Is unquestionably the best white heavyweight we have in this country, and If he can put away the foreigner It means that the white race of America still has a chance to win back the title. Kaufman and Lang will be evenly matched in weight and helrht. Lang weighs close to 190 pounds, and Kaufman, who is trained to perfection, will enter the ring a trifle below the 200-pound mark. Those who saw Kaufman in action last year will hardly know the Kaufman that tackles Lang tonight. He Is so much Improved as a result of his association with Johnson that he really looks like a champion now. Fort Washington League. STANDING OF THE CLUBS. W. L. Pet. W. L.

August !?. ?The 17th and 143d Companies split even on a double-header yesterday Storms shutting out the former 8 to 0. This la the second time this twlrler has perform ed the stunt against the same team. Storms pitched a good pa me, allowing but four hits, and was given perfect support. Holding the 17th bo well In hand he asked to continue on the slab the second time. The first two innings he held them run less. In the third, however. Hard wick tripled and Brostrom tried to bring him home on a squeeze play. B^pstrom performed his part all rtght. but Hard wick did not start soon enough, and the result was Storms threw him out. Yoh ner singled and Wier walked- Hicks then broke the ice by smashing to center, scoring Wier and Brostrom. Yohner and Hicks then scored on Wledners slr.gle. Storms was touched up for four hits In the next session and incidentally hit a batsman, which, coupled with an err*j>r Krlsan, netted four more runs and tne game. March went In In tr.e fifth, and even if he had held the 17th It aould have been to no avail, as they could only manage to get one more run off Bro strom. Clemmer starred at the bat in the first game, getting four out of four. He fell down in the second. Wier was much in evidence in the final game. Going to the plate six times he made three hits, received three passes, stole three bases, scored three runs and drove In four. The score: FIRST GAME. 17th Co. R.H.O.A.E. 143d To.
