The famous Johnson had a bit of
tough luck Tuesday when he fell to
defeat at the hands of Russell and his
Yankee teammates. Johnson only
allowed two hits, while Washington
gathered four. Pipp's triple and Ba

Allen Sothoron, a recruit from the
Portland club of the Pacific Coast
league, nearly broke into the hall of
10-hit game fame yesterday. A sin
gle by Chapman put the kibosh on a
perfect' pitching record. Only two
"len got as far as second base.
Fabrique, Brooklyn's snappy little
3hortstop, pulled his first errors of
the season Tuesday and handed an
3 to 3 game to New York.
When the Columbus American
ass'n team broke into the home game
stuff yesterday one of the big stands
broke with it. The big jam In the
park had just completed a demon
stration of patriotism when, with
wild yells, a section of the bleachers
caved in, carrying 42 men to injury.
Many were taken to hospitals.
THE CUBS WANT A REAL FIRST
SACKER MERKLE MAY COME
Wanted A heap of perfectly good
pep and ginger. AUo a first base
man. Address Chas. Weeghman or
Manager Mitchell, Cubs Park.
With Tuesday a day off on account
of bad weather, the leader of Weegh
man's Cubs had a chance to sit back
and consider his team, from the
standpoint of the first six games
played. 'Three contests have been
copped and as many dropped. A
much more serious slap to the team
than the three lost games was the
injury to Vic Saier. It is probable
Vic will be out of the pastime for
three months. Manager Mitchell is
more' or less up in the air (mostly
more) over just who he will have
hold down the unitial canvas.
Mitch has been dickering for Fred
Merkle of the Brooklyn outfit, and
for Fred Mollwltz, who was rejeased
to Kansas City three weeks ago. As
yet ther Is no word from either
team. For the present Mitchell plans
to play Ruether at first until he has
had a thorough tryout. Then if the
pitching-flrst sacker does not exactly
line up 9. K., Larry Doyle will be
given a crack at it. This will send
Zeider to second -and pull Deal off
the bench for third.
After Doyle, unless he plays first
like he plays second, comes Zeider.
Rollie has shown that he cam play
any old position in the infield. He's
a crack utility man but the Cub man
agement didn't figure on having to
insert him into the regular lineup
quite this early in the season.
While all these plans are being
tried out the Cub bosses will keep an
eagle eye ppen for new material
Coin Is not the question, they say.
If American dollars can make Ebbets
part with Merkle, North Side fans
will see him in daily action.
