BY J. ED GBULO. That the climate here Is a great handi cap to the success of the Washington hall team is the opinion of Manager Griffith He blames the oppressive heat of Wash ington for the failure of his team to play as good ball at home, as It does on the road. He contends that with few excep tions none of his players has been In condition during the last month. "I was always under the impression that this talk about the climate in Washing ton being a detriment to ball players was a joke, but I am now thoroughly con vinced that there is something to this," remarked Manager Griffith. "A man in training, as are ball players, are much more susceptible to climatic conditions than the average man who is not in trairi ing. The humidity here plays havoc with ball players. There is no doubt of that. My team has been affected by It during its stay here during August. It lost its speed and aggressiveness, and I am sure that it will do much better just as soon as It gets away from here." . Griffith believes that conditions could be Improved for the players here if they could all he housed together several miles from the city at some high point. He proposes to suggest to the club that it build a home for its players several miles from the city where It is cooler, and then have an arrangement to take the players to and from the park in an automobile bus. He figures that such an investment would be well made, as it would keep the players fresh and prevent them from going stale. At least five of the members of the Na tionals will undergo the operation of hav ing their tonsils removed this fall. Dr. I.arkin. the club physician, after exam ining the members of the team, finds that at least five of the players are handi capped by afflicted tonsils, which affects their condition. These players are John son, Ainsmith. Moeller, Shanks and Gan dil. All have agreed to submit to an op eration as soon as the season is over, which, it la figured, will prevent the colds and kindred troubles with which all of them have suffered of late. Dr. Larkln is of the opinion that climatic conditions here bring on this tonsil trouble. Every one of the players mentioned has been ill HARRY DAVIS TALKS Naps' Manager Admits His Showing Deserves Criticism. HOPES FOR THE FUTURE Thinks Changes in Team Will Hake Material Difference Next Season. CLEVELAND, Ohio, September 2.?"The Cleveland fans have a kick coming. I believe we have deserved adverse criti cism. In fact, I think the fans and newspapers have treated the team and myself, possibly, better than we have been entitled to expect." Such was the confession made by Man ager Harry Davis of the Naps today. Continuing, he said: "I don't know as I can answer your question, 'What's the matter with the Naps?' Perhaps I can do so partially. "In the first place we have made some mistakes. All clubs make some. Pos sibly we have made more than our share. Lack of speed has hurt us. par ticularly on the last eastern trip. We have not had a fast team this year, but I think there is improvement in that department of the game in sight. Over anxlousness has left its mark on our record. We got away to a bad start through the failure of some of the men counted upon to come through and de liver. Then, we tried too hard to over come that handicap and over-anxiousness caused us to make blunders that we might not have made had we been going well. . , "If there is any friction in the ranks, I do not know of It. If there is any feeling against me I want to know It. If any player is not giving the club his best be cause of dislike for me there is not room for both of us on the team. Either he or 1 will have to nuit. But I am confident that there is perfect harmony among the plavers and between the players and my self. I don't think there is a man on the team but what would work his head off for me. I have suspected nothing to the contrarv. 1 don't think 1 am a driver as has been reported. I have always be lieved in treating the players as gentle men and, win or lose, do not intend to change that style. Harmony With Birmingham* "I have also heard that it is reported that Jo? Birmingham and I are on the outs. That's news to me. There Is no player whose advice I would rather have than Joe's, and I am accustomed to ask him his opinion in the pinches. Some times I have liked his scheme better than mine, and have adopted it. Other times 1 have gone ahead as I had planned my ?alf. "I don't want to excuse any of our shortcomings by blaming our record to the umpires, but Cleveland fans, the ones who are knocking me now, will bear me out when I say the Naps have not re ceived an even break in the decisions at home. I will let them guess what breaks we get when we are on the road. But I suppose we are to blame for that our selves. If we had won more games we I would be in the first division and getting those breaks. A little faster team, a team that was not weak In spots, would have won enough of the games we have lost by one run to have landed us In second or third place. Perhaps the team we are building novw will be enough im proved to secure better results and win the games that would have been lost by us as we were constructed during our trip east. "As we will line up in a few days we will be faster than at auy time this season. Chapman, who will go to short tomorrow, is a very fast man. Doc Johnson Is as fast a first baseman as there is in the league. He is fielding beautifully and beating out a lot of bunts and slow grounders. Turner back on third will give us more speed, while Tim Hendryx should be here within a few days to go to left field. Tim is rather fast." So the future of the players and man ager Is left to the work done by the club during the next five weeks. Thirty two games are to be played, and Davis expects that In these games Cleveland will appear to greater advantage than hitherto. Both he and the players rea lise the situation and it Is believed that a marked reversal of form is due. Beady to Arrange Big Deal. That Cleveland will be in the market with willingness to pull off a big deal this fall or' winter is believed. It is re ported that waivers have been asked for as a ^result, and naturally their work has be#>n affected. This is particularly true of Moeller, who has not been .a well man in weeks. He is sure to be given a rest vhen Moran, the Chattanooga outfielder, . eports. The present series with the Athletics will come pretty near to deciding which of the two teams, the Nationals or Ath letics. shall finish second in the race. A clean sweep of the 'three games by either team is sure to virtually settle the ques tion. Griffith expects to win a majority of these frames, though he looks for a stubborn fight from the champions, who are sure to make a final desperate stand to finish as high up as possible now that all hope for the pennant has vanished. By iiBing Walter Johnson against the Athletics this afternoon Griffith will be able to work him but once in the series which opens in Boston Wednesday. Johnson will be ready to work there Thursday, perhaps, though he will be ready to get into some of the other games if the occasion arises that his services are needed. When the present campaign in the American League began it was generally conceded that so far "as the pennant was concerned it was only a question of how long a lead the Athletics tfould have at the end of the season. The brilliant per formance of the Mackmen In the last world's series, when they made the New York Giants look like a very ordinary aggregation, seemed to assure another victory for the Athletics in this campaign. But calculations have been upset. The team which wo nthe world's title last fall slowed up and* went batfk. Its pitch ers collapsed, compared-to-what they had done the year before, and instead of win ning the pennant the\AthJetics seem des tined to finish third, with a chance to fin ish second. The Athletics have been a real disap pointment. Overconfldenee has proven the greatest trouble. Mack's players consid ered it easy to win another pennant, and when they realized that they had a fight on their hands it was too late to make up lost ground. The game with the Athletics tomorrow, which is called for 2:30, virtually ends the local base ball season, for but three games remain to be played here thereaft er, when Boston comes at the end of the month. on a dozen members of the team. Some of these players will not be allowed to get out of the league. The officials of the Cleveland club did not think that they would. The request was merely for the purpose of feeling out the other clubs and to give Cleveland a chance to eome back with a counter proposition. For the sake of strengthening one or two po sitions President Somers is willing to trade three or four or even five or six players. In other words, he is willing to follow the example set by Charley Murphy of the Cubs, who has let go of four or five fairly good players at one time in order to get the one man he be lieved was needed in his Cub machine. PLANNING AHEAD. Yachtsmen Making Beady for Next Season. NEW YORK, September 2.?Yachtsmen are now busy planning for the next sea son, and while there are many rumors of a challenge coming tot. a race for the America's cup, which would stimulate things very much, the plans now being made for new yachts and new classes assure a brilliant season even If only one half of the yachts planned are built. The slxty-flve-footers now have nearly finish ed their fifth season, and they have fur nished some of the best racing ever wit nessed. PREVENTING PROFESSIONALISM From Spreading Among Athletes Who Won in Olympics. NEW YORK, September 2.?An aftermath of the Olympic games of which little is known by the general athletic enthusiast is the fight bein^ made by the committees of the various competing countries to pre vent the spread of professionalism among the victorious athletes. The effort made by professional promoters to secure the names of Hannes Kohlemainen, the Fin nish distance runner, and K. K. McAr thur, winner of the marathon race, caused much dissatisfaction and discus sion among the members of the interna tional Olympic committee. HAY PROVE SERIOUS. Camp, Jr., May Be Kept Off Eleven Became of Illness. NEW YORK, September 2.?It is sincere ly to be hoped that the Illness of Walter Camp, jr., will not prove so serious as to keep him off the Yale eleven in tiis fall. If in condition he should prove, as he did toward the close of last season, one of the most valuable men on the team, both as runner and kicker. The younger Camp's path to foot ball fame has not been an easy one, yet his development was steady until shortly before the Princeton game last year, when he cams along by leaps and bounds. Camp play ed three great games against Brown, Princeton and Harvard. INTERESTS OLD "ITTZ." Fitzsimmons Remembers Rough Deal When He Fought Sharkey in Frisco. NEW YORK, September 2.?Mr. Thomas Sharkey's periodical declaration of war has interested Mr. Robert Fitzsimmons. Of course, these old gentlemen will never meet again In the roped arena, but Mr. Fitzsimmons never will forget the deal he received when he fought Mr. Sharkey in Frisco sixteen years ago. Fits landed a solar plexus blow, and the tattooed sailor tumbled to the floor. One Wyatt Earp. expert with a six-shooter, was the referee, and with startling promptness he declared Sharkey the winner on a foul. Fitz de clared that he was the victim of highway robbery. Four years later he proved it when he flattened the muscular tar in two rounds at Coney Island, the Cornishman displaying the bitterest feeling when hs refused to shake hands before or after the quick mill. ? IS REAL PROMOTER. Barrow, Head of International League, Was Good Boxer Also. NEW YORK, September 2-Edward G. Barrow, president of the International League, is a follower of the boxing game. Barrow was a shifty handler of the mitts, himself, many years ago, and proved it on numerous occasions. He also pro moted boxing in Detroit and Pittsburgh, in addition to'other sports, hut base ball was his long suit. Barrow managed the Toronto team once, also the Detroits, but he yearned for something better, and when he was asked to |>ecome president of the Eastern league to succsed P. T.

NEW YORK, September 2.?Several ten tative itineraries have been drawn up for the proposed a round-the-world tour of the Giants this coming winter, but in any event there will be little or no playing after leaving Australia. If the party' leaves San Francisco November 2, or as soon after the world's series as possible (the trip is not contingent on the Giants being in the world's series), it would strike Honolulu a week later, and prob ably also play a game at Hllo, in the Hawaiian Islands. NEW SWDOfING EECOED. L. B. Goodwin Does a Mile in 25.25 Flat. CHICAGO, September 2.?I* W. Goodwin of the New York Athletic Club established a new United States record of 25.25 flat in te National A. A. IT. one-mlfe outdoor swim, held Saturday in the Lincoln Park lagoon, under the auspices of the Illinois Athletic Club. He finished nearly a minute ahead of A. C. Raithel of the L A. C? who wag second, in 28.2>. The former record of 23.40 2-5 was made by J. H. Rellly of the New York Athletic Club in the 1911 championships at Rye, N. Y. Goodwin finished second to Reihy in this race, in 25.41 3-5. He shat tered the old mark In sensational fashion, clearly outclassing the fleld of eix other performers. Louia Ferguson of the C. A. A. came in third, a few yards behind Raithel. and "William Vosburgh of the University of Illinois, winner of the recent Chicago river marathon, was next, in 28.28. Mi chael McDermott, swimming unattached, was fifth, and A. J. Rteuer of tha C. A. A. and Frank Woods of the University af Wisconsin trailed far behind. NINTH MEETS SOUTHERN TODAY IN POST-SEASON Fight Between Two Qubs for Second Honors Should Be Qose?A. A. U. Cham pionship Events Given Out. BY H. C. BYRD. The struggle.for second honors in the poat-season series begins today. Ninth and Southern are the two clubs which will battle for the runner-up position in the series, and they will meet today at the Independence League Park. Southern hopes to beat out Ninth for second place, and it shows little reluc tance in saying that it expects to ac complish just that. By the showing made by Ninth during its regular sea son it was thought that it had better than an even chance to finish second in the aeries, but under present conditions it does not appear to be much stronger than Southern, if any. The two clubs should put up a fairly even style of play. Ninth will probably send Bryant in to do its pitching, while Southern will de pend on Strobel, who has done some bril liant work for it this season. Bryant finished the game against Pepco Satur day, and did pretty well?well enough for him to be sent back again today against the club which is running it for second honor. Strobel has been the de pendency of the Southern team during the entire year. It has been his fine and consistent work, more than anything else, which has placed Southern at the top of the Railroad League. Barring accident to one of the pitchers the game should be a well contested af fair and close. It is rumored that Southern will.be minus two of its best men when it faces Ninth, but it is not absolutely decided as yet. Two of the players left on their vaeaions, and an attempt has been made to bring them back, but whether or not it has been successful is a question. The Washington Athletic Association will be represented for the first time in open competition this afternoon when a relay four sent by it competes in the meet to be held by the Baltimore Cross Country Club. The team will run against fours from the Baltimore Cross Country and the Central Y. M. C. A. of Balti more. The local four should show, well even if it does not win. There Is no question, though, that if the men who make up the Washington team are in condition they will come near finishing in front in the race. It would be hard to pick a better bunch of quarter-milers around here than the ones who will run as members of the new club in its first entry. The list of events for the Amateur Ath letic Union championships to be held in Baltimore September 21 has been given out, and is as follows: 100-yard dash, 22&-yard dash, 440-yard dash, 880-yard dash, one-mile run. two-mile run, 22!> vard low hurdles, pole vault, high jump, broad jump, discus throw, 10-pound ham mer. 16-pound shot. There are thirteen of these events in all, and for each the 9 9 | AMERICAN LEAGUE GAMES. | White Sox Seat Tigers. CHICAGO, September 2.?Two wild pitches by Jean Dubuc gave Chicago a ten-inning victory over Detroit yester day afternoon, 7 to 6. Dubuc came on in the ninth inning with the visitors leading, 6 to 5, one out, and runners on first and second. He walked Bar rows. then issued a wild pitch, letting in Lord with the tying run. Benz replaced Walsh, who slipped in the ninth, and held Detroit safe through the tenth. A pass to Rath, who stole after two were out in the tenth, linked with Mattick's single and another wild pitch sent Rath home with the winning run. Score: R H G.

September 2.-On a crease that was purely a batter's wicket, the game of cricket that was played on the field at Sutton yosterday afternoon resulted in si draw, the score standing at the declaration of the draw ing of the stumps. 12 for nine wickets against 80 for six wickets of the Orioles. The visitors showed well at the bat, and had it not been for the time limit being explicitly specified the Washing toniana probably would have won the game. Dr. Tom 'Williams, the English nerve specialist, proved himself a good crick eter, amassing 26 runs. Tom Irving got 23, and Branch a lucky 22. McWade was retired for 20. The locals used Springham, Thompson, Cole and Guthrie in the bowling crease and they were very effective during the first port of the game, getting three wtekets for 12 runs. Branch and Irving made a great stand for 27 runs. regular championship medals will be given. The events will probably be held at Patterson Park in Baltimore. It was hoped that they might be held at Home wood Field. Johns Hopkins athletic grounds, but the thin? which stands against that is the fact that the A. A. I . will not allow college men to compete in the championships. No college can be ex pected to donate its field for the use of an association which will not allow the athletes of that college to go into compe tition in what it terms a championship meet. The intersection series this week jses to be well contested in a sense. Ninth and Southern will have their hands full lighting each other1 for second honors. Of course, there is not much possir>ilit> that either of those two clubs will beat out Pepco for first honor, but the con test for the second position between the two mentioned clubs is apt to be close and bitterly fought. It is probable that the pitchers who got little chance to work for Pepco during the series just ended in section A ^ 1 l do all the hurling this week in the series against Ninth and Southern. Almost anv man on the Electric staff should oe able to defate either of the two mentioned clubs in the majority of contests, and they will be given the opportunity in order that Barton may get a complete rest before he goes in Saturday to start the series against the other city or cities in the championships. Besides Barton, the Pepco nine has three other capable men on its roster who ran deliver a pretty fair article of pitching. They are Beall. Sullivan and Kidwell, oath of whom is better than the average to be found among the amateurs. All three of these men pitched a game each in the series in section A. The work of each was fairly effective, al though not as much so as was that of Barton. , Sullivan beat Post Office by a score of 10 to 3, Beall won from the American Security and Trusa Company by 4 to 3, while Kidwell lost to Post Office, 2 to 4. It is reported that the Bankers will arrange a series of independent games to be played against the Maryland Ath letic Club of Baltimore and the Battle Axe Club, champions of Richmond. There is no question that if the Bank ers go against the two mentioned clubs they will have an excellent chance to beat both. The two nines from the other cities are not as strong as the Trust Company aggregation. Here is? how they stand in the inter section series and the sehedple for toda> .

September 2.?Chicago lost another half game In the pennant race yesterday, when defeated by St. Louis, 5 to 3, in the final game of the series here. New York and Chicago are now sepa rated by a margin of five full games. Not only did the locals lose the game, but they suffered the additional loss of Jimmy Archer, the best backstop on the team. In the ninth inning Archer was sent in to bat for Reulbach. He swung so hard that he grounded to Mowrey and before he could steady himself turned on his knee and fell. Time was called, while several doctors were sum moned from the stand. Archer was then carried across the field to the clubhouse, and it was said that his knee was badly wrenched, and he probably would be unable to play again this season.

Gotch, World's Wrestling Champion The obese man is always looking for the easiest way out of his fat prison, and that explains why he generally keeps right on adding to his weight. He goes into a cafe, orders a meal large enough for a family of four, con sumes it, and then with his stomach filled he feels comfortable and resolves on starting right in the next day to overcome his ponderous bulk. It is all right so long as his stomach is rammed to the breaking point, but the moment he gets hungry again he has to perform the same indiscretion of stuffing, after which he is strong on the same resolves. Losing fat is like dealing in any other thing ih which energy is concerned. I have known almost countless fat men who believed that Turkish baths would do the work, and if they persisted In those hot baths regularly they would begin to gain! I have known many others who under went the tortures of diet for weeks? only to start right in'regaining what they had taken off. The only real fat reducer I have ever met with is physical exercise?Indulged in regularly, and daily, for that matter? followed with a good bath and rub down. Unless the exercise produces ample perspiration, it has done no good. Unless it makes the obese fellow tired, it has done no good, and if he keeps on loading his stomach so that exercise Is always hard to do he hasn't got very far. To take off fat and keep it off, calls for energy?and energy belongs to nature, and it is never able to buy quite its full face in value. I have known fat men who kept right on exercising and who actually remained fat despite their daily work outs. This was because they ate more, instead of less?and never figured on their long hours of inactivity over their desks, that always will tend to add to one's weight, irrespective of the exercise. The fat man -can excuse himself from more angles than anybody else on earth. He pictures this gymnasium labor as the severest kind of toil. In truth, he is lazy, and away down deep he knows it?and his first duty to himself is to cure the idea of indolence in> his mind. After he has mastered that, and keeps his will power supreme over his dreams of carpet slippers, the family grate and the evening paper, as well as enormous dishes of fat-building viandg, he has won the largest part ?f the battle.

TROUBLE WITH PRESIDENT Owner Accused Men of Playing In different Ball?Other Gossip of the League. RICjHMOND, September2.?"Count" Cas tro of the Portsmouth tram has asked for a full Investigation of the charges made last week -by Charles T. Bland, president of the team. In which the majority of the players on the club are charged with playing indifferent ball. Castro denies that the team has been guilty as charged, entering a plea of not guilty to the whole thing, and in this he is sustained by the Richmond press, where the Truckers were playing for three days at the time the charge was made by President Bland. The trouble in the Portsmouth camp is something akin to what Charley Moss experienced when he was managing the Truckers several years before Ports mouth fell down on the league and the franchise had to be transferred to Peters burg. Moss claimed that he could not get a winning aggregation because of the interference of the management, but President Bland entered a stout denial to the claim of his manager and Moss walked the plank. In this present trouble all of the players have signed a statement in which they take a decided stand with Manager Cas tro, and in which they deny there has been any indifferent playing by any of the men. The appeal of Manager Castro for him self and his men to the Virginia League directors for a full investigation to obtain vindication would, it would seem, put it squarely up to the league at its fall meet ing to go into the charges and put the blame where it belongs. This row, along with a number of others of an unnecessary nature, has hurt base ball In the Virginia League, and by reason of the internal ?trite in the league the attendance has not been what it would have been had the magnates been at peace among themselves. The in tegrity of the game In the state is at stake and something should be done to prevent such troubles In the future. Although the Norfolk team is drawing meager crowds. President McCrary ot the Tars is already In quest of material for next year?a condition made possi ble, without digging down in the jeans, by the sale of Flnneran and Dodge to the Phillies for the modest little sum of $3,500 betyg quite sufficient, it is thought, to reimburse the association for losses during the season with a little sum on the right side of the ledger. Pitcher Henry Miller of the Newport News team is still out of the game and on the sick list. It is doubtful if Miller can get back in the game again this sea son. All of the Newport News players, with the exception of Deacon Morrlsey. have been fined $5 by President Boatwrlght for their participation in the strike against former Manager J. J. Grim. Richmond haa given a trial to Billy Hay, a local amateur, and he gave a line account of himself. It is expected that next year he will wear a* Colt uniform. Tliis would give the Colts, if Strain re mains another year, a capable home bat tery, for Strain has given a fine account of himself during the 1912 season. It is understood the Portsmouth team made an effort recently to land Jim Kelly, who managed the Lynchburg team In June, and who is still playing with the Winston-Salem team of the Carolina As sociation. W. B. Bradley, the power behind the throne at Richmond, has made an em phatic denial of a report that Ix?u Cas tro has been signed as manager for the Richmond team next season. The report started In Norfolk, being due, evidently, to the present internal troubles of the Portsmouth team, where Castro is man aging. Coupled with this denial comes < the statement that Steve Grlffln will1 again be in charge of the Richmond Colts next season. The ? proposition of President Smith of the Anderson (Carolina Association) club for a post-season series with the win ner of the Virginia League pennant is one that ought to be a money-maker. Either Petersburg or Richmond will win the Virginia championship, and either of, them would draw large crowds for such a series of games. A good many dollars would be garnered In Petersburg, but the ducats would be more numerous if the pennant should go to Richmond. Should Roanoke win, it would be well to call the series ofT, because the patronage 1 in the Magic city would hardly be suffi cient to pay railway fares. Newport News is to have a Dollar day next Tuesday, when at least u00 fans are expected to cough up a dollar to help keep the team going the last week of the race. Andy Bruckmiller, pitching for New port News, had a finger broken Tuesday in the eleventh Inning, up to which time Richmond had not scored on him. Brovn. without warming up, went to the slab, and Richmond scored twice In the twelfth, winning by the score of 2 to 0. i George Cowan, who was the target of a number of severe roasts when he started umpiring, seems to have rounded into an umpire far above the average. His work lately has been good. Cowan In his day was a hard player on the indicator man, and for that reason he should have lots of patience with umpire baiters. Carl Braun, the big Texan who was with Lynchburg in the spring, is being worked every day behind the bat for the Norfolk Tars and, despite this handicap, during the month of August he has hit at .801.

That seems to be about the average at Norfolk, but this does not prevent the backers of the team from laying the foundation for a stronner team for next season. When the magnates of the Virginia League adopted its present schedule, which was made n cessary hv the re duction of the circuit from eight to six. clubs, little did they think that in cap ping a week off the playing season that they would be compelled to pay the players for that week, games or no games. It develops now that the player# were signed to play until September 14. but now the season closes September ?. and the players are going to get tnat extra week from all of the teams. The discovery of this situation wai probably the cause for an effort to ex tend the Beason to September 14, ana when all of the magnates realize what they are up against the season will prob ably go on to the original closing da>. It is said that this is the real bun under the chip in the trouble at Portsmouth, for Manager Castro has been quoted in the Virginia press as saying that the Portsmouth team has been lining players recently to an amount sufficient to make up for the week's salaries to be paM w ithout value received. < 'astro sa>s, -Portsmouth has tried every way py* siblc to get out of raving these salatles and is now lining the men for any an-1 everything to recover the salaries in fines."
