For the first time in many years the
American League race does not promise
to furnish an exciting finish. The Athlet
ics are gaining more of a lead with every
day, and Its rivals are not showing any
signs of spurting. That this condition
?' affairs will prove a detriment to the
league, from a business point of view,
there is hardly a doubt. The public
loves a contest, and when a pennant
race is decided while there is still vir
tually a third of the season to be played,
public Interest begins to drop and nat
urally the attendance suffers in conse
quence. But the very fact that this con
dition exists is another conclusive proof
that there Is no manipulation of the pen
nant races, as some people insist.
In most of the previous penpant fights
two or more teams have been hooked up
In a head-and-head struggle about this
stage of the race, and year before last
any one of four teams had a chance to
win the flag during the last week of the
season. Not only did this state of affairs
help the attendance in the cities affected
by the contesffe, but even the cities
| which were out of the race were bene
In the National League there is at least
a struggle on between tm-o teams, and this
is none too close, but gives promise of
being closer before the finish is reached.
There is no city In the circuit which
appreciates the good work of its ball team
more than do the patrons of the game
here. The rousing reception given the
players on their appearance on the field
yesterday shows that their efforts have
not been in vain. It Is not because of
the lack of encouragement that Wash
ington has had a losing team for these
many years. Ball players are well treat
ed here and the fans are easier to please
than in most cities.
There Is 00 doubt that the encourage
ment which comes to the players as a re
sult of their good work does much 10 urge
them on. Just now the Nationals are en
Joying the conditions which always comes
to a Inning team. They are encouraged
in everything they do and their short
comings are overlooked, with the result
that they play with dash and lots of con
Any one who has made a careful study
of Walter Johnson's pitching can pretty
near tell whether he Is at his best or not
after he has gone an Inning or so. When
Johnson is right his fast ball seems to
curve the last half of the distance from
the slab to the plate, and when he is not
it looks as straight as a string
There are naturally two sides to the
stand taken by the club owners to pre
vent their players from Inditing in the
game during the off season. The players
feel that once the season is over they
should be allowed to spend their time as
they see fit, and that Is the view that
most any one would take of the matter
at the first glance. But the club must
also be protected. Its only asset is its
team. Without a ball team no base ball
plant or property Is worth a continental
as a productive proposition. Therefore,
it must protect Its assets. It pays ball
players big salaries for their work and
it should not allow such players to
endanger their future for the sake of
picking up a few stray dollars. That
is the club's side of it.
The ball player figures that after he
has delivered the goods for his Salary
he can go where and when he pleases
and do as he may see fit. Which is true
enough, but the fact should never be
overlooked that It is a player's duty to
help protect the game.
Tt may, of course, be a mere prank of
the game to show its uncertainty but it
does seem strange that the New York
team, which hits all pitchers as if they
were bush leaguers on Its own grounds,
finds it difficult to score more than a run
or two per game when It gets on the road.
It may be that the climate on the hill
top in New York Is Invigorating to the
batting eye. or there may be aome other
causes, but It Is rather strange neverthe
less that a team should show such a re
markable reversal of form with the bat
when on the road.
Just why 1t is that with hundred* of
minor league clubs in operation and thou
sands of players engaged in the playing
of the sport there seem to be so very few
outfielders in sight who have a chance to
make good 1n fast company is hard tb ex
plain. That, at least, is the com
plaint every minor league scout is
making Just now. It may be a bad year
,for outfielders, and there may be an abun
dance of them next year, for the strange
thing about it is that these youngsters are
sometimes developed in * single year.
NEW YORK, August 1H.?Manager
Griffith of Cincinnati is trying to put
through a deal for Third Baseman Es
mond of the Jersey City club, and will
probably succeed in doing so. The Red
leader went to Philadelphia with the
team but expects to return tomorrow to
try to'come to terms with the Jersey City
officials for the services of Esmond.
This youngster looks like the real goods.
He belongs to the Pittsburg club under
an optional agreement, but President
Dreyfus assured Griff that he will relin
quish claim on him in case a deal can
be made for him. Barney is well forti
fied at third base with Byrne and Mc
Kechnie, and does not need this young
fellow. All Eastern leaguers speak In
high terms of Esmond's ability, both as
a fielder and a hitter. The chances are
very good that he will not report until
the latter part of next month, after the
Eastern League season is over.
BROOKLYN, August 16.?From San
Jose, in the Outlaw Coast League, comes
a dispatch that Happy Smith, formerly
with the Superbas, has joined that team.
8mith was secured from Chicago with
Tony Smith and Davidson in the deal
for Mclntyre. Happy did not give the
local team his best service and was list
less and entirely lacking in ambition. He
complained that he was sick and wanted
to get back to the coast. He asked to
be allowed to go hack there to get in
shape. President Ebbets put the matter
up to Manager Dahlen and the latter
stated that Smith was of no use to the
team. Tie player went home and was
released by the Brooklyn clut> to Roch
ester in the Eastern League. Smith
told Mr. Ebbets that he would get some
team out on the coast to buy his release
from the Brooklyn club, but as Smith
stood Brooklyn about 12,000, and there
was little chance of his becoming able
to get more than 1500 for his release, Mr.
Ebbets could not see where he was to be
a gainer. If Smith plays with San Jose
he will be barred from organized base
ball and will also be subject to a fine.

"The Chicago Nationals also secured a
fine young player in Cooney. the short
stop of the Spokane club. He is a grand
player and will make good. The Pitts
burg club has a fine young pitcher in
Gardner, from the Vancouver club, but
I like Bonner best. Pitcher Annis of the
Tacoma club. Is another good one. Rock

game for Tacoma and Blankenship is
showing up better than ever for Seattle."

Question Is Raised Whether the Umpires
Are Better in Johnson's League Than
in National or Under Better Control.
Is the umpire staff of the American
League so much superior to that of the
National, or are the American League
players Just naturally more amenable
to decisions? One thing is plain^ to
everybody who attends gamea in both
leagues. and that ia there is consider,
ably less kicking in the American.
There have been cases too numerous to
mention of players being fired off the
Held and suspended in the National
League this year, while such cases in
the American can be counted on the
fingers of one hand.
Whether or not it la the umpiring,
the American League players accept de
cisions with better grace than their
National confreres. And yet human
nature must be the same in both
leagues. The umpires in the American
League are quite as human as in the
National, and make mistakes, yet what
kicking there is is quietly done and
Christy Mathewson Explains
Secret of His Success.
Twirier Must Think.
Special Disnatrb to Tke Star.
NEW YORK, August 16.?Fans who
have wondered at the remarkable pitch
ing feats performed by Christy Mathew
son and have tried to solve what they
are pleased to term the great secret of
his success, are apt to have their Ideas
shattered when they learn that the great
pitcher himself bluntly explains it thus:
"The secret of pitching is nothing more
than plain, everyday common sense, as
sisted by a good arm."
Mathewson seldom ta!^3 that much at
one time, but his explanation was
brought out by a discussion of his feat
on Thursday in retinrjg the Reds with
out a run In the la.st inning of a game
when there were time on bases and
none out.
"There was but one thing to do when
they got two men on bases and none
out," said Matty, "and that was to walk
the next man and fill up the bags. One
run would have tied the score, and we
had to play to keep down that run, even
at the risk of losing the game. With
the bases full, we had more chances of
retiring the side, because the play would
be made at the plate and the runner,
being forced, would not have to be
"But you changed your style of pitch
ing immediately," was suggested.
"Certainly," replied the big pitcher.
"Our only salvation was to make the
next batters hit the ball into the dirt, In
stead of lifting it in the air. Knowing
that this had to be done, 1 fed the suc
ceeding batters on curve balls?a big
drop. It ia very difficult to hit a drop
curve up in the air. As it is curving
downward the batter will usually hit it
on top and bounce it to one of the In
fields. That is exactly what happened,
and we got two men at the plate. The
j next batter struck out."
Hounds very simple, doesn't It?
"You know." said Mathewson. "there
is a lot of difference in the style of
pitching when there are runners on base
and when the bases are empty. The
surest way of winning a ball game is to
keep them from reaching first base.
There is much more danger of a ground
ball going through for a hit or a batter
reaching first on an error than when the
ball ia hit Into the air. But if there is
a runner on third, the ball must not be
hit into the air, as a long fly would
score him.
"Therefore, when there are no run
ners on the bases. It Is common sense
to keep the ball high so that the batter
will hit under it and lift it to a fielder.
Unless the game Is very close, I use
very few curve balls under those cir
cumstances. The curve ball should be
used when there are men on the baps.
"To make that a little plainer I would
say, 'Always keep the ball in the air
when the bases are unoccupied, and al
ways keep it on the ground when the
plate is threatened.'
"A pitcher should always bear In mind
that base ball is a gamble, to a large
extent, but he must figure which way
he has the most chances and work It out
on that line. For Instance, a ground
ball is dangerous at all times, and es
pecially so when the Infield is playing in
close. But at the same time a fly ball
with a runner on third is fatal. The
pitcher must take the risk of a grounder
and take all on getting the man at the
plate. If the ball Is hit hard the game
is lost. It wil' shoot between the in
flelders and ko for a hit, but that la tbe
gamble of the game, and to take the
lesser of two dangers is nothing more
than common sense."

seldom progresses so fas us to provoke
the scenes so frequent in the National.
It almost seems as if there is a bond
of consideration and mutual respect in
the American between player and um
pire which reduces fault finding to ?
The system fn the American League
is to switch umpires daily from plate
to bases: in the National one man is
behind the bat all the -time and one
on the bases all the time. That plan
does not teach versatility, but has its
merits in that it offers more opportu
nity for an umpire to become letter
perfect. Still, switching might bring
about Improvement by reason of doing
away with sameness.
It may be that the American League
umpires make fewer wrong decisions,
and again it may be that poor decisions
do not attract as much attention in the
American for the reason that less kick
ing gives them less prominence. Be
the fault whose It may. sportsmanship
as between players and umpiras is

Wright and McLoughlin Win
Their Matches on Rain
Soaked Courts.
NEWPORT. R. I., August 16.-The two
notable contestants In the big field for
the championship honors of the thirtieth
all-comers national lawn tennis singles
tournament, Beats C. Wright, ex-cham*
plon and internationalist, and Maurice E.
McLoughlin, the young Californlan, who
came into International prominence last
year, played their first matches on the
rain-soaked Casino courts yesterday.
In the opening rounds of the tourna
ment both won their matches. The Cali
fornlan had a shade the best of it, how
ever, for he was always fast and re
sourceful. He defeated B. M. Grant, the
southern champion, of Atlanta. In straight
sets, 6?2, 6?1, 6? lose. Wright had
greater difficulty with Dr. William Rosen
baum before he scored at 0?3, 6?1, 6?2.
In other matches Richard H. Palmer,
the New Jersey state winner, and Fred
erick C. Inman, the recent winner of the
New York state title on the field of the
Crescent Athletic Club at Bay Ridge,
came near to following the old adage of
the game that wet courts are prolific of
reversals of form.
On the roster of 1?1 competitors, a rec
ord list for the tournament. Palmer and
Inman only figured as secondary in the
outcome. Still to what hardships the
players were put is shown by the fact
that Palmer lost a set to Thomas Slide'l
before he won at 6?2, .1?6, 6?2, 6?2; while
Inman was as near to defeat as he will
care to be at the hands of Walter L.
Pate, the Brooklyn champion, over whom
he scored at 6?I, lO??, 6?I, during which
he made a wonderful rally from behind,
being a recipient of some good fortune.
That there were no upsets of matches
played shows the class of the tournament
this year. The summary:

Fatal Result of an Operation He
Had Performed Assigned
as Season.
HARRISBl'RG, Pa.. August 16?The
mystery which at first surrounded the
deaths of Dr. Russell Campbell and Mrs.
Ira Morrison, whose bodies were found
yesterday at the Morrison home in New
Germantown, Perry county, seems to be
cleared. A neighbor discovered the body
of the woman lying across the front
doorstep, and further search revealed the
doctor's body in his room.
Hasty examination showed that Mrs.
Morrison had died from internal hemor
rhages resulting from an operation. The
theory Is that Dr. Campbell performed
the operation some time during the night,
and on discovering the fatal result killed
himself. His death was due to cyanide
of potassium.
Dr. Campbell was twenty-four years old
and a graduate of the Medlco-Chirurgical
College in Philadelphia. He was a son
of Dr. Hans Campbell, a well known
physician of Path valley, Franklin coun
ty. A few months ago the young man
went to New Germantown and set him
self up in practice, taking a room at the
home of Ira Morrison, a local dealer in
Husband Absent From Home.
Morrison went to Dry run. fourteen
miles away, Saturday to attend a picnic
and to buy cattle, and remained over Sun
day. He hastened home this morning
when notified of the tragedy.
About 11 o'clock last night David
Kramer, a neighbor, thought he heard
moaning in the Morrison house an ne
passed, but as no light was visible he
concluded he was mistaken. At 6 o'clock
this morning Luther Ray passed the Mor
rison home and saw two bare feet pro
truding from the half-open front door.
Running up . the steps, he was horrified
to find the body of Mrs. Morrison in her
night clothes and bathed in blood. She
was dead. Hurrying on Into the house
Ray found the body of the young doctor
in his room, diad on the floor. Beside
him was a partly empty vial of cyanide
of potassium.
A coroner's jury was hastily summoned,
and word was sent to District Attorney
Rice, who hastened to the scene from
New Bloomfleld. The Jury found a ver
dict to the effect that Mrs. Morrison had
died from the efTects of an operation,
and that Dr. Campbell had died from poi
son taken with suicidal Intent as a re
sult of the disastrous outcome of the op

Fiock of Pigeons Beaten by Le Blenc
in Farman Flying
AMIENS. France, August 16.?The first
aerial race between the biifa of nature
and of man's production, took place In
the course of the gr^t serial cross-coun
try competition and was easily won by
man. A flock of forjv-seven carrier
pigeons was released at Douai yesterday
at the same Instant that Le Blanc in
his Farman biplane started from the
mark on his flfty-mlle flight to Amiena.
Birds Quickly Distanced.
Rushing without a tremor through the
calm air, the biplane soon outdistanced
the birds, and when Le Blanc reached
Amiens the flock was not yet in sight,
the first pigeon arriving six minutes and
twenty seconds after Ij* Blanc.
Before the last of the flock had come
in Legagneaux. who had stsrted at the
same time as Le Blanc, but consumed
nine minutes more on the trip, arrived,
beating the last pigeon by twelve minutes.
