baseball this year. But the work of
Jones is great enough to overshadow
the failings of a whole army of mere
ballplayers. '
Jones had to come through the
back door via the Federals. He
couldn't break into the organized
majors in any other manner. Now
he is the sensation of two leagues
and drawing big crowds where empty
stands were formerly the usual order.
Detroit ballplayers are evidently
of the opinion that they still have a
chance for the pennant, despite
.opinions hereabouts that the fight
lies'between the two tones of Sox.
Their conduct on the field betokens
confidence, they are playing for
every break in the game and show
ing twice the determination and
ginger they did when here the last
If Jennings had one more consis
tent pitcher he would be a hotter
contender. As his team stands now,
it looks like a third-place crew,
dangerous at all times.

anotner tomorrow winds up the
home stay of the Hose. Then they
head east, opening their final trip
in Boston. Prospects are not sur
charged with glorious hope.

glad to see depart. But this is not
true of the east's feelings toward the
Cubs. The North Siders were so soft
for the seaboard boys that there.was

for Pittsburgh last night from
Brooklyn after dropping two games.
The easterners are looking forward
to a pleasant visit here the latter part
of this month.
The eastern swing resulted in four
victories, one tie and a dozen defeats.
Two games were won in Philadel
phia, one in New York and one in
Boston. And all year we have been
touting Joey's joys as great road
In all games but one the team has
had great pitching. Fine efforts of
hurlers has been nullified by failure
of our people to bat and some errors
of omission and commission that
were pitiful to behold. The club is
only two games out of seventh place,
and that berth will ultimately receive
it if there is not improvement Pitts
burgh and St Louis are both playing
better ball than our workmen.

first. Severeid got four hits.
Miller and Tyler were winning
pitchers in split between Braves and
Pirates. Mamaux and Barnes lost.

Giants winning pair. ' Fletcher got
four hits in first game.
Reds won at last, Moseley pitching
better -than Rixey. Roush and Neale
got three hits each.
Murray Deming and Gunner Nel
son are playing in the 36-holei final
today at Jackson park for the city
golf championship. Both men are
members of the Marquete Park Golf
club. Deming yesterday eliminated
Rautehbush in an easy match, and
I Nelson put out Patterson in a hard
struggle. Deming equaled the course
record of 69 for 18 holes.
Chicago won its second champion
ship in the Union Printers' National
Baseball league at Indianapolis by
defeating Cleveland in the final
game, 7 to 5. In order to be in on
the final it was necessary for Chi
cago to defeat New York, which it
did in the morning game by a score
of 5 to 4.
The superior pitching of W. De Ca
luwee was responsible for the victory
hi the New York game.
Koeller pitched a good game
