CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., November I -w.?The Virginia team left here yester day at 12 o'clock for Richmond, where , it will meet North Carolina In the last l Kame of the season. Thanksgiving day. Carolina's -team has had four men of | Princeton's 11)12 varsity working all sea i son with this one game in view, and will put forth every efTort to win, as it has 1 not recorded a victory over the Orange I and Blue in more than six years and | Virginia has been considering arranging a stiflfer game for the iinal contest as soon as the present contract wKh the Tarheels expires. Reports from Chapel ill are to the effect that Carolina has taken on quite a good deal of confidence since Virginia was defeated by George town, and its followers are now will ing to bet even money on the outcome of the contest. Tol Pendleton, who was on hand at the game between Georgetown and Virginia, said that unless the latter team played much better foot ball than it did then ho was looking for Carolina to win by at least ? two touchdowns. Virginia will present practically the same l?ne-up that started against George town. except that Flannagan may replace : White at left end, and either Word or ' Mayer will likely start at left half in I place of Randolph. Word was hurt badly | in the early part of the s.easori. just when ? he was beginning to show varsity caliber, ; but has entirely recovered now,- and se-'tns i to be p aying in old-time form. He lives ! in Richmond, and wili have a sreat many j fri? n-ls in -the stands Watching his work ; if he play s. i A<")Ut students will accompany tin* t. am. and they, with t?n? squad, will be entertained by the Richmond uiuiwui Thursday night. Virginia has lost ouly one game so far! this season, that one being to George- I town, and the success of the present sea- I I .s"ti depends on the result ol the Katne j ith Carolina. JACK JOHNSON WRESTLING. His German Opponent Used Unfair Tactics and Narrowly Escaped Mob. P.YR1S, November 28.?Jack Johnson's j Paris debut as a wrestler occasioned a riot last night. When the colored pugi list appeared at the Xouveau Cirque against the German wrestler I "rbacli, Johnson secured the llrst two fuJls. and (j jritig these bouts I rbucli was mad*- the object of a hosti e dentonstration on ac count of his unfair tactics. In the third bout Urbat'h suddenly struck Johnson a violent blow in the face. The blow did not seern to affect Johnson in the least. He only laughed. The crowd, however, became enraged. I and hundreds of men rushed upon the stage. The Genr?aii sought safety in fll?ht. The riot prevailed for half an hour, dur ing which time the police made ? number of arrests. _ A GEORGETOWN U. PLAYSLAST GAME Blue and Gray Eleven Meets Holy Cross in Final 1913 Contest Tomorrow. NORTHERNERS LIKELY TO SHOW GOOD TEAM Worcester School Is Generally Rep resented by Very Capable Aggre gation?Aggies Play P. M. C. BY H. C. BYRD. Georgetown will close its foot ball season tomorrow. The Blue and Gray eleven is to meet Holy Cross in a pame which, if won, will give it a clear title to the championship of the Cath olic colleges in the east. While this title is somewhat vague to an outsider, it is nevertheless one for which Holy Cross, Fordham and Georgetown will fight as desperately as for the cham pionship of any section. Whether or not Georgetown will be able to defeat the Worcester eleven is very questionable. There is no doubt that it will be against a more capable eleven than any it has yet faced, with the exception of those which represent ed the Naval Academy and the Indians. Holy Cross is nearly always repre sented by a foot ball team the equal of any secondary college eleven, and it plays the majority of its games against colleges much larger than itself. Some thing of the kind of schodule played by Holy Cross may be known when it is stated that the team has met i Yale, Harvard and Princeton this sea son. besides playing its other games. Any team which can go through a schedule of that kind is certain to be very formidable. Just .what kind of condition Georgetown will be in when it faces the New Eng landers tomorrow is hard to tell. Of course, the Blue and Gray did not sus tain any serious injuries in the Virginia game, but it is always a very difficult matter to get the men into shapfc again after the relaxation which natural ly follows the big game of the year. It will be remembered three years ago that V. M. I. came within the barest margin of beating the Blue and Gray after it had lost to Virginia 36 to O. and Virginia had been beaten by Georgetown the previous week by 15 to 0. If Georgetown is back in the condition it was when it met Virginia, it will give Holy Cross a hard struggle, but if the men have not yet gotten back into shape the odds will favor the visitors. The game will begin at 2:30, and the gates will be opened at 1 o'clock. Wey mouth of Yale will referee. The Nationals and Vigilants, two inde pendent foot ball teams which have been claiming the championship of the Dis trict, will meet tomorrow in a contest to decide the supremacy. The Vigilants have the heavier and more experienced play ers. but the Nationals are figuring that they have a chance to win. The game should be sharply contested. The Maryland Agricultural College eleven will leave tomorrow morning for Chester, Pa., where it will meet the Pennsylvania Military College. The Farmers realize that they are pitted against the best secondary team they have faced this season, the Keystone state boys not having lost a game and having defeated the strongest secondary elevens in that section. The Chester ag gregation won from St. John's by 27 to O. while the Aggies could win by a margin of only 13 to 0 from the same school. CINCINNATI DROPS TINKER. Jtanager and Board of Directors Fail to Agree on Terms. CINCINNATI, November 26.?It was I officially announced by the board of di rectors of the Cincinnati base ball club late yesterday that Joe Tinker, man ager of the team last season, would not manage it during the season of 1914. Inability to come to terms with Tinker is given as the reason for reaching this conclusion. The official statement follows: "The officers and directors of the Cin cinnati Exhibition Company desire to announce that they could not come to a satisfactory agreement with Mr. Tin-, ker to act as playing manager for the Cincinnati team next year. The ques tion involved did not pertain to salary. Mr. Tinker seemed to believe that he was entitled, if lie again assumed the position as manager of the Reds, to usurp all the authority vested by the stockholders in the executive officers and the board of directors of the com pany. Under these conditions these di rectors decided not to re-engage Mr. Tinker as manager of the team for next year. "Who the manager of the team will be is a question for the future, and will be taken up and considered at the proper time." Lincoln A. C. Ready. The Lincoln A. C. foot ball team is in condition after a few days of hard prac tice to meet the Roseda'e eleven in their annual struggle tomorrow morning at the latter's grounds, 17th and Rosedalc streets northeast, at 10:.*50 o'clock. Both teams will go on the field with about the same average weight. Capt. Murphy of the LJncolns would like the following men to report on the field not later than 10 o'clock. D. I#awrence, I>.

DEPOSED AS CINCINNATI MANAGER. JOE TINKER. OFFICIAL AMERICAN LEAGUE PITCHING RECORDS, 1913. Compiled by Irwin M. Howe, American League Statistician. FIVE FULL GAMES OR MORE. Walter Johnson leads the American League pitchers so easily in the official averages, based on the percentage of earned runs per game, that he virtually stands out by himself. The remarkable feature of these figures is that Cicotte, the veteran Chi cago pitcher, is next to Johnson, close ly followed by Russell and Scott, two other Chicago pitchers. Joe Boehling is sixth in the list, and next to Boehling comes Joe Engel, who leads some thirty odd pitchers. Engel pitched effectively, so far as allowing earned runs, to score is concerned, but his wildness caused him to lose many games. In compiling the pitching averages the pitchers are ranked according to the earned runs made off them. Earned runs were charged, according to announce ment from the American League offices, whenever a run was made by any com bination on base hits, sacrifice hits, bases on balls, hit batsmen, stolen bases, wild pitches or balks^ When a fielding error or passed ball figured in the mak ing of a run. it was not charged against the pitcher, and the records omit runs made after an error on a play which would have retired the batting side if correctly executed.

PHILADELPHIA. November 26.? "Fifty thousand dollars? That's a lot of money. But it's not enough. I can't think of a sum large enough to Induce me to leave Connie Mack, the man who made me." That was the answer Kddie Collins, king of second basemen, made to an offer of $50,000 for three years' labor ill the Federal League. Abe L. Einstein, a Philadelphia n. who represents the outlaw base ball organization, made the proposition to the Athletics' star. The contract which was presented to Collins called for a yearly salary of $15,000, or If45.000 for the trio of sea sons. To guarantee the payment of this princely stipend, the $45,000 was to be placed in any bank selected by Collins, where it would draw interest. At the same time an arrangement was to be made by which he could write semi monthly checks for $1,250 during the playing season. When the three years had ended, it was pointed out to Eddie that the interest would increase the amount to more than $50,090. Not Seriously Considered. "I really didn't give the proposition serious thought," said Collins last night when seen at his home in Lansdowne. "Mr. Kinstein assured me that it was! absolutely legitimate. That's all I know about it. lie offered to take me to the bank I would name and show me that he meant business. "Fifty thousand dollars In three years listens big-. And we all like the money. There are two reasons why I did not consider the offer. The first is Connie Mack. What I am in base ball today he made me. I cannot bring myself to believe that an offer could be made sufficiently large to induce me to leave the Athletics as long as Con nie wants me. Then, again, I would not want to desert organized base ball to go with an outlaw league without giv ing it long and serious thought." Collins would be a big card for the Federal League. He was recently de scribed as "the most valuable base ball player in the world" by no less an authority on the game than John J. McGraw. manager of the Giants. Kddie plays base ball with his brains as well as his arms and legs, and his place in Mack's one-hundred-thousand dollar infield would be hard to fill. Other Players Approached. The king of second sackers is not the first player to be approached by the Federals. Even now. other play ers are considering tempting offers to jump organized base ball. Collins' immediate refusal of the fifty-thou sand-dollar bait speaks volumes for the lumest dealing of Connie Mack and the high regard in which he is held by his players. "I know of nothing about any offer being made to Kddie Collins." said Manager Mack last night. "If true, though, 1'ni mighty glad to know that he refused it so quickly. I have every confidence in my boys." Mack refused to discuss the at tempts of the Federal Leaguers to at tract major leaguers. His attitude seemed to be one of those "I should worry" bra.nds. Krichell Sold to Buffalo. KANSAS CITY, November 26.?Catcher Paul Krichell of the local American Association club, was sold last night to the Buffalo team of the International l.cague. Kansas City obtained Krichell from the St. Louis Americans last winter. . Manager Fred Clarke of the Pirates is quoted as saying that Willie Keeler was the greatest hitter of them all* when it came to fooling the opposition. There are greater straiglit-away hitters than Keeler. admits Clarke, but Willie was the. best on the little short cboys^ just over the intield. J < HAS NO DEAL ON FOR RUSSELL FORD I Griffith Denies He Offered Moeller and Boehling for Spitbalfer. DOES NOT INTEND TO LET ANY PLAYERS OUT j Fans Believe Howard Shanks Will Have Better Breaks With the Bat Next Season. BY J. ED GRILLO. A story which is printed in a New York paper this morning to the effect | that Manager Griffith of the Nationals i is trying to make a deal for Russell ( Ford, the Yankee's spitball artist, is i emphatically denied by the Nationals' j boss. According to this yarn. Griffith is willing to give Joe Boehling and Dan ; Moeller for Ford, while Carrigan of i Boston and Birmingham of Cleveland are also competing for Ford with offers I which on the face of them look absurd. "I have never given Ford a thought," said Griffith, "and I haven't any inten tion of making a deal for him. If ever I offered Boehling and Moeller for Ford I would consider myself ready to have my head examined. I propose to stand pat with the players I have on my list. I may add some players, but I do not propose to let any of those who have shown ability go. I can't understand how such stories are start ed. Ford has never entered my mind.j and so far as letting either Boehling or' Moeller go, why that is out of the question." Artie Hofman. once one of the Cubs. ' who was recently let out by Nashville, ' is slated to play first base for the San Francisco club next season. Hofman tried to get a job with one of the major league clubs, but was turned down, and decided to go to the coast. Local enthusiasts are hoping that Man ager Griffith will give Howard Shanks another trial next spring. The fans be lieve that the time has come when the Monaca outfielder will hit his batting stride, and they blame ill luck for his showing to date. Shanks, no doubt, has suffered much by reason of his inability to get many hard-hit balls into safe territory. Time and time again line drives from his bat have been hit right at one of the opposing fielders, and it is figured if Just half of th?5e had gone safe that he would have finished with a very creditable batting average. It is believed that luck will take a turn | for him next season, and that he will j hit well enough to assure him of a regu- ! lar position in left. Griffith, too, has hope that Shanks will show Improvement in his batting, and, re gardless of what may happen in the way of getting another outfielder, Griffith is sure to hold on to Shanks and give him another chance. POTOMAC, FAMOUS RACER. DIES Won Futurity, Flatbush and Law rence Realization Stakes. AMSTERDAM, N. Y? 'November 26.? Potomac, one of the most noted thoroughbreds of his day, is no more. The renowned horse has passed away at the Sanford Hurricana stock farm. He was twenty-three years old. A son of St. Blaise and Susquehanna, he was one of the best of his day while rac ing, and he played an important part in turf history. Potomac was brought to the races by August Belmont, and he was winner of the Futurity of 1890. The same year tie was winner of the Flatbush. As a three-year-old Potomac raced under the silks of the late M. F. Dwver, and he met with a full measure of success, taking the Lawrence Reali zation as his best performance. He also was winner of the Spindrift, a sweepstakes at Brighton Beach, and the Barnegat stakes at Monmouth Park. During his four-year-old season he won four races under the silks of Mr. Dwyer. and at the close of that year he was purchased by the late Gen. Stephen Sanford.

Pa., November 28.?A letter vote, closed at noon yesterday by representatives of the Federal League se lected Pittsburgh for their regular meet ing place, to plan for the raid on big leagues for material. The session will start next Saturday morning. A finan cial plan will be outlined. Secretary W. T. McColloch of the local club received the official notice last night, and is making plans for the enter tainment of the visiting Federal League officials. While the plans for next season and the talk of forfeits will play a big part in the meeting here, the real purpose is to take up the question of making induce ments to the major league players. The plan will be worked on the mutual benefit scale. Two men will be in charge of the securing of the players, while the men, when secured, will be drawn for by lot. with all clubs participating. The rule adopted at the western meet ing. at Indianapolis, provides that if a player is transferred he will not receive less money than he signed for. nor at any time during his playing in the Fed eral I^eague will he receive less than his original contract. Every club in the league will be repre sented Saturday. Backer Traded to Giants? NEW YORK, November 26.?Reports of a deal between the New York and Brooklyn National I>eafrue clubs, by which Nap Rucker, the star left-hander of the Superbas, is to be traded to the Giants for Charley Herzog and Rube Marquard, were persistent in base ha'l circles here last night, although officiars of neither club could be found to con firm them. It is known that McGraw has long been anxious to get Rucker. Always the Same? Tharp's Berkeley Rye 812 F St. N. W. Phone Main 277. Special Private Delivery. THE BARTRAM ELECTRIC GARAGK. Tel. W. 4.V.

Jim Thorpe is being groomed by Mc Graw for outfield duty, but it will b? another year before the iJttle Napoleon attempts to play him regularly. Thorpe is in need of experience and a better bat ting style, in which McGraw is drilling him. The Indian athletic marvel is o\er anxious to "murder" the ball when he steps to the plate, and the Giants' man ager is doing his best to have Jim over come this failing. Also, Thorpe's bass running must be improved.

Happenings ^poridom BT J. ED OBULO. The announcement that Joe Tinker will not manage the Cincinnati team next season, coming: as it does after it was supposed that he had again been in stalled in the position, is one of the sur prises of the present winter. Notwithstanding the fact that Tinker's regime in the last campaign wag a pro nounced failure, it was announced several weeks ago that he had been retained for the coming season. The matter appar ently was all settled, and Tinker was be lieved to have taken charge of the team's affairs again. While it is understood that there was no misunderstanding regarding the salary Tinker was to draw, it is plain that the board of directors of the club in sisted on placing certain restrictions on his authority, and when he refused to submit to these he was immediately de posed. If these are the facts. Tinker is not to be blamed for the stand he has taken. No man can be a successful manager of a team unless he is in absolute control. Just as soon as it is neeesary for him to con sult any one regarding his plans of run ning the team he is doomed. No intimation is given as to who will be appointed in Tinker's place, and it is questionable whether Tinker will remain with the team as a player, having an nounced that he would never consent to play with a team which he had man aged. Danny Moeller took the air for the ball more times than any other player in the American League last season. On 106 oc casions the Washington outfielder heard the umpire call him out and took the shortest route to the bench. To him be longs the left-handed honor of the sea son's greatest fanner. But as a compensation he is well up among those who walked. His seventy two free trips do not come close to the year's mark of 102 set by Shotten of the Browns, but they do not put him far be hind Eddie Collins, second in this event, with eighty-live, and Donie Bush, who ties Jackson for third honors with eighty. Gus Williams, one of the hit-it-a-mile boys, took second whiff honors with eighty-nine. Ty Cobb struck out thirty two times, Jackson twenty-six and Speak er twenty-four. than an advertising effort, and it is to the credit of Collins that he is not even giv ing it serious consideration. The Federal League has threatened to make a fight 011 the two major leagues by raiding them of their stars. This campaign will most like ly consist of making ridiculous proposi tions to various players without any in tention of fulfilling thein, but which will serve to give the newcomer a lot of no toriety. 1 A star ball player when tempted to ac cept such a proposition would want the SoO.OOO deposited to his credit in some bank, and it is a safe guess that there is not a club in the Federal League which could carry out this part of the con tract. 1 It i9 understood that all the major league clubs have agreed to wait until the last week in January before sending con tracts to their players. No club will at tempt to sign a player before that time. The fact that SO per cent of the members of the fraternity will not talk business with their employers until they are re leased from pledges does not appear to worry the magnates one bit. Under the surface, however, there is a rumor that many players already have accepted terms verbally and that m> matter what may be the outcome of the fraternity's demands for reforms, they will sign con tracts as soon as they receive them. There haH been some flirting with the Federal League people, but the latter have been unable to show enough real money to cause dissatisfaction among the players belonging to organized base ball. Arthur Shafer of the Giants has spiked the rumor that he did not intend to report to McGraw next spring. Shafer, who is wintering in California, says that his eon tract with the New York club has another year to run and that he will be one of the first players to put in an appearance at Marlin, Tex., next spring. The alleged offer of $50,000 to Eddie Col lins by the Federal League to leave the Athletics must not be taken seriously. Tlie chances are that if Collins wanted to accept such a proposition he would be turned down. The offer is nothing more Belmonts Arc Victors. The Belmonts (colored) foot ball team defeated the Teddy Bears eleven by the score of 1- to 6, Sunday. The feature was the line-charging of Ambrose Jack son, J. Green. D. Rogers aud J. Brown. Manager Joe Birmingham announces himself as a candidate for first base next season. Joe better have a care. Jake Stalil. Hal Chase, Frank Chance, Harry Davis and George Stovall were unable to play first base and mauage at the same time.
