There is little chance of a trade for any Brownie with Street as the payment.

Scries With Cham pions Will Prove Real Test. BY J. ED GRILLO. After the most successful trip that any ball team ever made in the history of the Kame. having won sixteen consecutive games and made a clean sweep of their invasion of the western cities, the Na tionals arrived in the city this morninc. Griffith's team did not lose a game in the west, a performance which has never been equaled. It won seventeen games and lost but seven since it left here nearly a month ago. Its start was anything but encouraging, for the first nine garner played brought but two victories, but be ginning with the afternoon game on Dec oration day at Boston not a single defeat was encountered. The result of this bril liant showing is that the team is now sole occupant of the second berth in the race and will for the remainder of the week battle with the world's champion Athletics. Beginning tomorrow afternoon, when a game will be played here, seven games are to be played during the re ; mainder of the week, six of them being | scheduled for Philadelphia. To win a i majority of these games is the ambition of the Griffithites. and if they play the same kind of ball that they did on the re cent trip there is no question but that this will be accomplished, notwithstanding the fact that they will be pitted against the team which is believed to be the strongest in the league. No team ever received a more auspi cious welcome than did the Nationals upon their arrival this morning. There was a crowd of several thousand at the I'nion station, and when the players alighted from their sleepers a mighty cheer went up. Automobiles had been provided for the party, which was driven to their respective homes and hotels amid | the cheers of the throngs which lined the I streets. Walter Johnson will not pitch tomor row. In fact, it is doubtful if the great pitcher will he able to work in any of the games against Philadelphia. He has been suffering from a severe cold for several days and spent all of Sunday in bed. He appears to be threatened with tonsolitis and has placed himself under the care of Dr. Edward Larkin, the club's physician, who has hopes of having him in shape again within a few days. The illness of Johnson is the first setback the team has had in a long while. With him out of the game the team's pitching staff is badly crippled, notwithstanding the fact that the other twirlers have all done good work. Barney Pelty joined the Nationals in Cleveland yesterday afternoon. There could be a no more tickled individual than Barney. To get away from the Browns ar.d get a berth with a winning team is more than h? had hoped for. and there is no doubt tliat he will make a special effort to deliver the goods for Griffith. Barney says that his arm is as strong as ever, and that he will prove it just as soon as he gets an opportunity, which will undoubtedly be against the Athlejics, a team against which he has been par ticularly successful in the past. Aside from Johnson, every man in the squad is in perfect condition. The work the players have been doing lately has been of the highest order, and in cities where it followed the Athletics critics and spectators did not hesitate to say that the Nationals made a better impres sion than did the world's champions. But it is plain to see that the Athletics are coming at a terrific gait. Connie Mack's team is now playing its best ball, and the Nationals realize that they will have their hands full. But there is a whole lot of confidence in the ranks. The play ers do not fear the champions and will go at them with a lot of determination. With Johnson out of consideration for the game tomorrow it is more than likely that Tom Hushes wiil be called upon to do the twirling against the Athletics. Long Tom is in great shape and the only game in which he did not show to ad vantage was last Friday, when a stiff wind which blew across the Cleveland field interfered with his curve ball and he was hit rather hard. But under nor mal conditions Hughes can be relied upon * ? Boston Beats Chicago. CHICAGO, June 17.?Boston defeated Chicago, O to 4, yesterday in the third game of the series and forced the locals into third place. Lange and Wood fought a pitching duel, but the visitors found the former in the fifth and eighth innings, scoring enough i runs to clinch the victory. Lord hit a home run in the first Inning, counting Rath before him. Score: _ Athletics Trim the Tigers. DETROIT. June 17.?Philadelphia got a flying start of five runs yesterday, and taking advantage of nearly all of De troit's seven en~ors downed the Tigers, 8 to 6, in the final game of the series. Score: [ Sunday American Chicago Boston.. R.H.E. 3 0000010 <>?4 5 3 10003002 0-6 8 1 Philadelphia Detroit R.H.E. 5 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 2?8 11 0 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 2 1-0 14 7 to give a Rood account of himself. Plank will most likely pitch for the visitors, and. as he is always a hard nut to crack, the game should prove a hard-fought pitch ers' battle. The improved condition of the Nation als since their last appearance here will become apparent to local patrons of the game when they see the team in action tomorrow. Griffith has a fast, hustling team of youngsters which is never beaten until the last man is out. It has changed materially in that it plays its best ball when it has a lead to overcome. i>o marked is their play once they have an uphill flght on their hands that it has been remarked in other cities that the onl> wav to beat them is not to score against them and hold them safe until the ninth, when a run would win. To get a lead early in the game only serves to make them angry and they have been either tving the score or taking the lead them selves in the very next inning. There were several games on the recent trip when it "seemed that the winning streak would be broken, but that *rit and de termination which Griffith has instl le into his men always came to the front in time to save the day. What will undoubtedly prove the largest crowd that ever attended a ball game in this city will be on hand tomorrow when the Nationals make their first ap pearance at home since their wonderful performance in the west. Every reserve seat has already been sold and long be fore the game is called the park is sure to be packed. The seating capacity of the local park is close on to 15.0<V> and it will undoubtedly be necessary to stretch ropes in the outfield to accom modate the crowd. The report that Griffith refused to stay over in Cleveland for the game today is erroneous. Had the Cleveland club wanted to play the game scheduled for Sunday on Monday Griffith would have had to hold his team there. But Cleve land had enough of the Nationals and when the Sunday game was called ofr because of rain they notified Griffith that he could go home. It was up to the Cleveland club entirely and Griffith had no voice in the matter, as the league rules provide that when a game is post poned and an off day follows the home club can compel the visiting club to remain over to play such a game, pro viding it is possible for the latter to get to its next destination in time to carry out its part of the schedule. Griffith was anxious to play, for he believed that it would have resulted in a certain victory for the Nationals, since the Cleveland team is not only all shot to pieces, but is playing listless ball, and is not to be compared with the Nationals. Much will depend on how the young pitchers show up in the seven games which are to be played with the Ath letics. There is no way to* avoid using the youngsters, for the veterans will hardlv be able to repeat in the series now that Walter Johnson will be pre vented from working in the opening game This series will be a great test for Griffith s young pitchers, for they will be pitted against one of the I strongest teams in the country in a battle which may decide which one of i the teams is going to lead the race by Monday. To date the youngsters have done splendid work, and have been perfectly manipulated by urillitti. but i the real strain will come this week, ! and no one can predict what may hap j pen. Having rested yesterday, Griffith had his players out at the park at 11 o'clock this morning, and put them through an hour and a half of hard work to have them ready for the game tomorrow. Griffith is a stickler for work. He does not believe that idle davs help his team and he never overlooks an opportunity to have it hustling. Only the first five rows in the upper and lower stand and the box seats were reserved for the game tomorrow, and of course, these were sold in a very little while. The remaining seats will go on sale at 1 o'clock tomorrow at the ball park. i Jack Coombs Wears a Harness to Protect Body While He Pitches Jack Coomb*, wfcoiie injuries sustained while pitching have ho nearly put him out of bigr lengue hue ball, wear* a harness while he pitches that protects his body from further injury. There are atraps and chains that are bound about the sterling pitcher while he works. Strikes Out Twenty-Four Batters. NEW YORK. June 17.?Twenty-four strike-outs in a nine-inning game was the remarkable pitching record of Dick Redding of a local semi-professional team, his opponents being for the most part players from the TTnited States League. Redding allowed three hits and issued two passes, but had two strikes on each of these five batters. "SIX TEAMS IN PENNANT RACE." MACK STANDS BY PREDICTION Wily One Looks for Athletics to Take Lead While Several Other Clubs Are Killing One Another Off. DETROIT, Mich., June 17.?Any one of six teams?Boston, Chicago. Washington. Philadelphia, Detroit or Cleveland?is a serious pennant contender, according to the figure* of one Connie Mack. Mack has stood by his early-season statements that the 1912 American League race would be the most exciting since the league's organization. Chicago's great spurt at the beginning of the season did not discourage Mack. He figured that the White Sox would fall?then the other teams would pull up. Mack never has been considered in the light of a gosslper. In fact, he is strong in his reputation as being one of the most taciturn of men. And on this trip of the Athletics he is even less responsive. Pugilistic history tells that Jim Jef fries' greatest speech was a grunt. Mack hardly grunts. "What team do you think will win the pennant?" he was asked. "Any one of six." "The six?" "They're leading now." "How are the Athletics?*' "All right." "Going to winl** "Had a little hard luck?" "Nope?that's in the game." "Got a poor start then?" "Yep." Then Mr. Mack went to his room. Connie Mack would make an ideal di rector for the Standard Oil Company. But a politician?never! The Mackmen are getting Into their stride. Plank, Bender, Coombs and Mor gan are beginning to pitch in the form they are capable of, and the hitters are working more consistently. Mclnnls. Collins. Baker, Strunk. Old ring and the other ^clouters on Mack's staff are showing more now than at any time during the season, and they are giving Mack less cause for worry. Mack's scheme, probably, is to work in the lead while the other five teams are killing one another off. Jennings' future would be less com plex were Mullln, Summers and Donovan to show form. Mullin is overweight and the big pitcher spends several hours daily in Phasing flies and doing other weight-reducing stunts. Summers complains of a 'sore arm, while Donovan's game in St. Louis two or three weeks ago showed that Bill was not yet himself. While the three veterans are rounding to Jennings will be forced to depend upon Ihibuc, Willett, Covington, Works And Lake to do the pitching. ALL AMATEUR GAMES MAY BE POSTPONED TOMORROW AD Seem to Have Lost Sight of Everything Except the Game at American League Park. BY H. C. BYRD. All games in the amateur leagues may be called off tomorrow afternoon. There is a probability that the contests will be postponed because of the home-coming pf the Nationals. There seems to be a gen eral desire to have nothing interfere with | the ball game at American League Park. Whether or not the suggestion, which has [ been made in the majority of the circuits, will be acted upon is a question. There I is one drawback to it. though. The fact that the postponement of games now will undoubtedly cause a piling of contest at the flag end of the schedule is the only reason that has been advanced so far against the proposition. The amateur commission will meet to night and the question will be broached and decided. There will be a great deal of favorable comment in regard to honor-; ing the advent of Washington's first win ning ball club, and the main argument that will be advanced is the fact that the manager of the professional organi zation has given it out as his Intention to set one day aside that amateur clubs may be honored, the day to be known as Amateur day. Independence day will be celebrated with a track and field meet at Petworth. The meet will be closed and will be heid at Grant circle, near the Eagle Gate en trance to the Soldier's Home grounds. The following events are carded to be held: Sack race for boys twelve and under. Three-legged race for men over twenty five. Seventy-flve-yard dash for boys sixteen and under.

June 17?Three Brown University base ball stars are ex pected to sign contracts with major league clubs before the end of the week. Big league scouts have watched the work of Capt.

Consolman is pledged to Pittsburgh of the National League. Mike Lynch, the old Brown star, '.ater twirler for Pittsburgh, putting the lines on the Brown man. Warner has not yet decided whether It will be Phila delphia or Detroit, both of the American League. Both clubs are after him. Neither player will sign until after col lege closes Wednesday. Tug of war. Cross-oountrv run. The following officials will have charge of the meet: Referee: Percy Le Due. Starter: Leroy Bowd. Judges: C. L. Gable, Roger Garrett, R. S. Jones. Timers: Walter Collins, Matthew Wa maling, George Lynch. Clerk of course: Carleton Stanton. Assistant: William Waldorf Spencerian. Announcer: Charles Stevenson. Custodian: Josh Carr. The schedule in the Independence League has had to he rearranged and it stands as follows for the coming week: Monday. National vs. Southland; Tues day, Pepco vs Aloysius; Wednesday, Man hattan vs. Loeffler; Thursday, I<oefflcr vs, Aloysius; Friday, Pepco vs Southland; Saturday, Aloysius vs Southland. A special meeting of the Independence League will be held Wednesday evening at President Roakes' home. Arrange ments will be made for an excellent showing of the league on amateur day at National Park. If the amateur contests are not called off tomorrow there is apt to be several forfeitures, as it is certain that the major ity of players will go to American League Park. After the big game there is not much likelihood that they will feel much like playing in an amateur contest. Eppa Rixey. who has signed a con tract to join the Philadelphia National League club, spent Saturday and part of yesterday here. The big fellow said that he was confident he would make good. While Rixey is hardly In very good shape right now. as he has done little or nothing since Virginia ended Its schedule, it will not take him long to get in shape to do good work. If Rixey comes up to expectations he will probably be taking his regular turn on the mound before long. The Andrews club is booked to take a ten-day trip through Virginia, and will meet the majority of the inde pendent semi-professional clubs in that state. It is probable that Pete Lynch, who has quit the Potomac Electric Power Company nine, will play with the Loeffler club in the same league. It is reported that the provision company is after the former Technical High youngster. GARRY HERRMANN DAY. White Sox to Hold Reception for Na tional Commission President. CHICAGO, June 17.?Garry Herrmann day, a quadrennial event celebrated at White Sox Park, will be held today. The president of the national base ball com mission and of the Cincinnati Nationals will be escorted on the field by the Blaine Club of Cincinnati, three hundred strong. The club members will be conveyed to the park by special trolley cars and will march into the field headed by a brass band. A program, as yet unannounced, is scheduled to precede the game between the White Sox and the Boston players. FRENCH DERBY TO FRIANT II. Outsider Wins Chantilly Fixture. Sightly Runs Fourth. PARIS, June 17.?The Prix du Jockey Club, the French Derby, at Chantilly, was won yesterday by a rank outsider ?Prince Murat's Friant II, which was at 32 to 1. August Belmont's Amoureux III. a bay colt by Octagon, quoted at 0 to 1, finished second, and Comte de Berteux's Ukase II, at 17 to 1, was third. W. K. Vanderbilt's Sightly, which ran third in the French Oaks last Sunday, fin ished fourth, but Didius, also a Vander bilt entry, ran unplaced. The French Derby is a three-year-old event at one mile and a h3lf. This year it was worth $.'i7,2U0. Seventeen horses faced the starter and Amoureux III too? the lead. Friant came up rapidly and forced the pace, in spite of the heavy go ipg. Friant shot ahead on entering the straight, winning easily by two lengths. The attendance this year was smaller than usual, owing to the heavy rain. Jockey Coburn Dying. SAN FRANCISCO, June 17?William ? Monk) Coburn, who ten years aso was a leading Jockey, is dying of tuberculosis in a hospital here. Coburn is twenty-nine years old. In the heyday of his career, when he was in Chicago, he is credited with having won $40,000 in one day. BASE BALL BRIEFS. ? Joe Wood and Walter Johnson are hav ing a close race to see which can win the most games in the American League. Howard Shanks, left fielder of the Na tionals, is going to make a lot of players in that position sit up and take notice this summer if he keeps up the grand work he has been doing.?Chicago Post. It is the opinion of many that Chick Gandil provided the balance necessary to make the Nationals a pennant contending club.?Detroit News. The spirit of '70 is all right, but the Boston Nationals are said to be a hun dred years off schedule, playing 1>76 base ball. Catcher Archer's arm, it is said, is very thin above the elbow, the result of hav ing been bitten by a dog. But the con dition does not interfere in the least with his superb throwing. Barring a lapse when he faced the Browns, Jack Coombs has been going at top form since his convalescence. He has won his last three games, in which op ponents' runs total three. Detroit fans complain that constant shifts in the line-up have demoralized the team, and Jennings is not finding it as pleasant to handle an in-and-out club as a winner. The Browns are reinforcing themselves with two new pitchers, Weilman of the Blue Grass League and Napier of Texas. Stovall is also dickering for Daley, an outfielder of Los Angeles. Jennings has experienced much the same trouble as Harry Wolverton. In juries and the poor showing of some of the regulars have forced both leaders to shake up their teams repeatedly in the hope of getting a winning combination. I Jake Stahl is making a big hit in the west with his manner of playing the ini tial sack for the Red Sox. He dig3 them out of the ground and goes into the air for them with equal ease and accuracy, and Jake can go some distan e in the air. Herman "Germany" Schaefer is the fun niest man in base ball without a doubt.
