Phillies Win Protested Game from
Giants Row tb Follow.
' President Lynch of the National
League has reversed the decision of
Umpire Brennan, forfeiting to the
Giants the game with Philadelphia
August 30, and the contest will be
put in the won column of the Quak
ers. Brennan halted the game in the
ninth inning, with the score 8 to 6
In favor of Philadelphia.
Brennan gave the game to the
Giants because spectators would not
move from the centerfield bleachers.
ilcGraw claimed they interfered with
the vision of-his batsmen.
As a result 'of Lynch's decision an
other case similar to the Fogel mess
is impending. The New York club
imagines itself above the law and will
attempt to appeal to the National
'Commission. This plan will probably
be knocked in the head, as Lynch's
decision was made on an "extraor
dinary precedent."
Charges, however, will probably be
brought against Charles Dooin, man
ager of the Quakers, It is alleged
that after the game Dooin in the
Philadelphia offices told President
Hempstead of the Giants that New
York could buy the, umpiring in the
league. This is construed as an Im
putation on the honesty of the
league, and the Giant management
will try to "get" the red-haired pilot
of the Phillies.
Similar charges by Fogel last year
resulted in his removal from the
presidency of the Philadelphia club.
Dooin was probably angry to the
point where he didn't care what he
said, and with good reason. McGraw
did not protest against the presence
of the spectators until a man was out
in the ninth inning and he Baw vic
tory slipping away.
Some baseball schedule, which
doesn't give Chicago a game Labor
Day or for three days thereafter.

One hundred and twelve firemen
were overcome by smoke in a State
street fire yesterday, but this acci
dent was slight compared to the way
the Cleveland Naps and their pen
nant dreams were suffocated by the
White Sox. Pulmotors revived the
fire laddies, but Joe Birmingham can
use oxygen from now until the end
of the season and his men will fail
to respond to the treatment
Jim Scott Joe Benz, Buck Weaver,
Hal Chase and Harry Lord used the
smudge on the Naps with deadly ef
fect. Monday the Sox looked like
dubs when stacked against the Cleve
land athletes. Yesterday the position
was reversed.
Chase continued his game exhibi
