What Has Happened o n co What Will Happen LIU-UUNJ LTUJJUQ U EDITED 1BTY WAGNER IbUJJIfQUV, HOME RUNS DEFEAT DAN O'NEILS CLUB foot Ruell and Skipper Eley Make Circuit at Steeple chase (By Wagner.) A young college tut up Vho dis iiiAri himsolf bv taking the name Stone, was Bent In to stop the Me chanics at Steeplechase yesterday, but he fell down the chutes. McCann's clouters Jarred him severely in the latr innines and pounded out a vic tory by 6 to 2. Dan O'Neil, the rsew Rr-itnin rnfl.e'nfl.ta. declared that the pitcher assumed a fancy name be cause he intended to' go back to col lege and get by as an amateur if he didn't make good. It looks like-back to the dear old campus for Stone. The word has been passed around that, southpaws . bother Bridgeport Stone did bother Lou Litschi ana Benny Kauft, neither of whom got a hit, but Skipper Eley and Foot Ruell found the southpaw as sofll as falling into a tub of butter. Eley had a home run, a single and two passes In four times up. ) Ruell connected for a home run. a single and a pass. Freddy Gibbs got away with the game for the Mechanics. He said after the. contest that he didn't have his usual line of stuff butJ he made em hit and good support did the rest. He gave the Cubebs only six safeties. It looked in the ninth as If they would get to Mm but a fast double play by Lou Litschi and Chief Snvder Dut the skids under the visit ors who got only one run out of two I hits, a pass and a wild tnrow Dy Litschi in the last session. Turn the spot light now on Benny Kauff, the most prominent citfeen of Pomeroy,' Ohio. When Benny can't hit 'em himself, he spoils the other fellows' efTorts. In the seventh Jack Hoey cracked one that was "bound for ,the dancing blue waves on the other side of the right -field fence. Kauft backed up against the rampart and sticking up his gloved paw spear ed the ball as it was sailing over the garden wall. The fans cheered so loudly that the right fielder had to doff his lid .when he returned to the bench. , ' Here's how Bridgeport got two In the fifth. Harvey Russell singled to center and Gibbs sacrificed. Skipper Eley got two strikes and three balls and then slashed a liner to right. The ball rolled behind a barrel and before Jack Hoey could find it. Eley had ' rounded third. He easily made a homer out of it, scoring Russell ahead of him. In the seventh the Mechanics put four on the scoreboard. Freddy Gibbs walked and Eley swatted for a base.- Litschi sacrificed. Chief Snyder came through with a single past "Cabrera that tallied . Gibbs and Eley. Ladd popped to Cabrera but- Foot Ruell lambasted one to right that bounded over the fence and Snyder - trotted Home in front of Ruell. Full down the curtain.

New York, June 19 Announcements made today show three good boxing events on the week's local program. Fighting Dick Hyland. of California, and Bert Keyes, of New York, will box 10 rounds at the Olympic A. C. tonight. Jimmy Clabby, Milwaukee's middleweight, meets Jeff Smith, Bay onne, 'at the National Sporting- Club, Thursday night. On' Friday night, Eddie Murphy, the New England lightweight, and Sammy Smith, Phila delphia, will fight at the 20th Century A. C. i New York, June 19 Piatt Adams, of the New York A C, is today the frolder of the world's record for the Ine standing broad jumps, which ;evnt he won at the Mayo Men's As sociation games at Celtic Park, yes terday, by covering 103 feet 7 inches. The former record was 100 feet 4 in ches, made in 18S5, by Malcolm W. Ford. New York, June 19 Although James Zuncan, of the .Mohawk A. C, tossed me-aiscuss a recora distance or i feet, which surpasses the world's mark made by Martin Sheridan, he win not be allowed the title, since the throw was made not in competition but In' an exhibition event at the games of the Fair Grounds Catholic Association. i EVERYBODY THINKS THAT SATISFACTION COAL IS THE BEST IN THE CITY IT IS Will Stop Flynn And JWorris Bout Governor of Oklahoma Declares Big Fight on July 4 Won't Take Place Tulsa, Okla., June 19 The Carl JMor ris-Jim Flyna fight, scheduled for July 4, will not be held In Oklahoma If Governor Cruce makes good his "threats made yesterday in a letter to Sheriff Berry, of Sapulpa, in which he said he "would call out the militia if neces sary to sto$ a brutal fight and end forever in this State a brutal sport that nearly every civilized community has abolished." New York may get the fight as a result, although it is probable that it would be postponed a month if transferred to the East. B. F. TJfer, Morris manager, refused to discuss the situation last night. He will not say whether'he will accept the Governor's ultimatum t or stage ' the fight anyway, trusting to the oil field fight fans to help him carry his bluff through. "Wise ones say the promot ers have been trying to get him to take Morris easl; and that his silence last night is due to his desire to hear from them before giving Oklahomans an idea" as to where their idol will fight. Morris Is in Sapulpa,' at the bedside of his wife, who was operated on yes terday afternoon,, and does not know that there is a change of his going east within a week. He said yesterday that he woudn't need ten rounds to beat Flvnn. - HAVEXFELTZ TWIRLS FIXE BALL FOR WEST'EXDS. Pitcher Havenfeltz of the West Ends came near breaking .Into the hero class yesterday when he allow ed the Shore Lines of New Haven but one hit, shutting them , out 10-0. On the other hand the West Ends hit Hurler Ryder hard gathering as many hits a? runs, four of them coming the way of Outfielder. Davis.

Dan CXeil says he wanted to keep Mike Smalllng as a utility man. . He thought pretty well of the local boy hut Mike was anxious to go to the Tri-State League, v "Anybody can get by there," says the New Britain mag nate. "Players who hit .300 down there wouldn't get a foul . in. this league," On every corner, Saturday night, the fans were talking about that 13 in ning game.? They couldn't say -enough in praise of the Mechanics for their fine work. Dixie Walker had the goods against the Senators. The tighter the situa tion the better he liked it. Guess that was ' a bad deal for Bridgeport. Walker has won three, games for Mc Cann's men and Ruell is going great. Benny Kauff was the hero. He made two lightning throws that nab bed Senators who tried to stretch sin gles into doubles. He also made, a double and clouted the triple that pro duced the winning run. Bob Stowe came back with a rush against Hartford. Some of Bob's stops set the fans cheering. His one hanti stab of Shincel's grounder in the 13th was a wonder. It makes a difference with Harvey Russell in there catching. .The boy from old Virginia- held Walker up in snappy fashion and how he did peg to bases. Two Senators were caught trying to purloin second, and in the ninth it was Russell's accurate, -heave to Ruell that nabbed High at third and spoiled Hartford's chance for vic tory. Pete Wilson looked pretty good in his first' game for Hartford. His southpaw slants bothered the left handed stickers and the right hand ers, too. Pete was with Troy In the New York State League this season. Manager McCann sent Red Lynch back to the New York Americans to day and handed Tex Rumsey his re lease. The local boss had to get his roster down to 14 men as required by the league. He didn't really give Lynch a fair opportunity to show but Eley has been going so well that there wasn't a chance for the young ster. Eley increased his batting aver age 42 points in the past three weeks. Rumsey had plentyof stuff , but had poor control and was constantly get ting into the hole. Benny Kauff, Bob Stow and Hugh Reddy-went to New York to see tho Boston Red Sox and the New York Americans play this afternoon. Ben ny had a great time shaking . hands with the New York players he wa3 with on the southern training trip. There were 3.500 oaid admissions at Newfield, Saturday. It looked like rain before the contest or there would have been 4,000 on hand. The return of. Pete Wilson is" rel ished by some of the sluggers. "I'll bat .400 now that Wilson's back," de clares Bill Luby, the Northampton manager. "He was always pie for me." The Mechanics had an off day to day. The game yesterday was sched uled for today and was advanced. Manager McCann slept until 10:30 instead of leaving the hay at 10 o'clock and making the sporting writers arouse him by pounding o;i his door. Waterbury won, its fifth straight yesterday by beating Hartford 2 to 0. Lower twirled for the Pacers and Ray for the Senators. GOP. LEAGUE MAY DROP NORTHAMPTON AND HOLYOKE Two Massachusetts Clubs Owe $3,500 and League Will Pay Players' ' Salaries (By Wagner.) ' , "The ( Holyoke and Northampton clubs are about $3,500 in the hole", said. Manager Dan O'Neil of New Bri tain club in an interview at Steeple chase yesterday. "That's why I held out Northampton's share of the re ceipts of .the double header on my grounds Saturday. They made a big kick but President Tracy instructed me to hold the money. The North ampton salaries haven't been paid and the ; league will see that the players get their money. That was the reason the receipts were held out. This money will be produced at the league meeting and .put into the fund to set tle up the Northampton club's debts." O'Neil said Northampton and Hol yoke want to continue until July 4, hoping that the big receipts on that day will put them on easy street. "But if it rains that day," remarked the New Britain manager, "the league will be J,0O0 in. the hole instead of $3,500." It is said that the Northampton players have not fceen paid since May 15 and that the Holyoke players are two weeks behind in their , pay. Af ter Saturday's double header in' Hol yoke, the home players divided the club's share of the receipts.: Each man got $15.50. Most of the managers think Holyoke and Northampton will drop out of the league and' that the organization wll continue with six clubs. The managers favor this because it will give them six good cities and they won't lose money by taking long Jumps to Mas sachusetts. There was some fear ex pressed that the change might make it necessary to classify the league as Class C instead of Class B. Even with six clu,bs the circuit would have an aggregate population of 554,370, which would entitle the organization to re main as Class 'B. ' There is also some talk of trans ferring5 the New Britain franchise to Holyoke and dropping New Britain. ' Slim Foster is having a bad sea son. The Springfield Ponies pound ed him hard at Lighthouse Point and Beat New Haven by S to 2. Temple and Christopher worked for Spring field. . . How about that catch Benny KaufI made at Steeplechase yesterday? It looked as if Jack Hoey's drive would clear the right field fence but Benny backed up against the palings and stabbed , the ball with one hand. Four in a row for Cleveland! What could the team do if it only gingered up? Jennings hurled eighteen men against' the White Sox before the Tigers finally won. When a team can begin the eighth inning seven runs to the rear and then overhaul Its oprbn ents, it is some fighter. Bresnahan made a desperate effort to win the series from New York. His men hammered Wlltse for four hits but a Giant rally in the 9th turned the tide McGrawward. The Cubs took three out of four from the Phillies without oneVof the former great in fielders in the game. Cobb is the first batsman to turn his 100th hit. The five safeties that he pounced ont. yesterday, brought his count to 101. - Frank Bowerman, the old time catcher has signed to pfay first base for Kansas City. .. . xne Tiger-wnite sox game was a regular department store of baseball. Rucker of Brooklyn has at last struck his old time form and is turn ing In wins wfh regularity. They're smoking Nuggets at Poll's this weelc. a ENTHUSIASTIC SUNDAY SPORTSMEN WILL SPEAK BEFORE THE PASTORS . George H. Wood and Thomas .Walsh, representing the committee which is working to secure a change in the Sunday observance statute, in order to legalize orderly amateur sports on Sunday, interviewed Rev. Gerald H, Beard on that subject, yesterday. Pastor Beard will call a meeting of the Pastors' Association at which Messrs. Wood and Walsh will be al lowed to present their views. In the meantime the petition. for a change is rapidly swelling in-the num ber of signatures, the total now hav ing passed 14,000. Rev. F. A. Dillingham yesterday preached a sermon on the Sabbath question. ' He said that he believed recreation and sports are necessary to mankind and that it is not improper to use a portion of the Sabbath for them if necessary. He wishes, how ever, to warn the people of the dan gers attendant upon the commercial ism of the Sabbath. INDUSTRIAL LEAGUE. Standing. Won.

The rivalry with Hartford makes it soft for the Cubebs because even on a week day a crowd of 2,500 will turn out in New Britain to see a game with Hartford. At present two plans are Informally under consideration. One is . to let the -season end as the clubs stand now and declare Hartford the cham pion. In that event a new season would be started without delay, with the probability that the winner of the championship if any team other than Hartford, would play Hartford a series for the tithe at the end of the sea son. '.' This plan has been used and is still used in some sections with good sue cess. The other plan is to let the race continue with the clubs retaining their present standings. There is no doubt that the players will get their money and the method by which they will be paid will be determined tonight. The probability is that some of the clubs will want sev eral of the players and that wherever awards are made, whether by lot or otherwise, the club getting a man will obligate Itself for the salary due him. If any players are left without jobs the league will take some action to see that they are paid what is due them. Sales of players may also make up some of the money. Manager McCann when seen this morning said: "I am not 'in favor of dropping Holyoke and Northampton. It looks to me as if somebody else would come forward and take those franchises if the present owners don't want them. It would make the league look cheap to .drop two Alubs before July 4. I am going to ,4nake a strong effort at the meeting to night to have the eight . club circuit kept intact." . So it looks as if there will be a lively time in Hartford this evening when the magnates gather.

Oak Stre.-.t Still Talking Of That Great Game Here On Saturday , The fans are still talking about' that 13 inning game at Newfield Saturday when Bridgeport downed the Hartford league-leaders by 2 to 1. No Bridge port team in the memory of the old est rooter has played such a brilliant fielding game. Bob stowe, Lou Litschi, Benny Kauff and Chief oSnyder won aj plause for wonderful fielding stunts Dixie Walker was in great form and held the Senators in the pinches. He allowed only eight hits, and gave but two passes. With the score 1 to 1 in the ninth, High, the Hartford left fielder, tripled to left. Rehg hit a sharp grounder to Litschi. who made a fine stop. The throw to first was wide but Snyder, wbc was playintj for Crook made a one, hand stop and touched Rehg as he passed. High was still on third. Then came 'the b'sr flash of the day. Noyes poked a sizzling grounder to Stowe who made a clean pickup and threw home. High saw he would be caught so he tried to return to third but Harvey Russell whipped the ball to Ruell and High ws nailed. Maybe there wasn't sonr yelling then. In the 13th Bridgeport won out. Hi Ladd grabbed an infield hit and Foot Ruell bur.ted. The ball hit him-on the leg and he was out. Benny Kauff cracked a triple to the crowd in right field and Ladd ambled home with the winning run. Pete Wilson, the south paw, recently purchased from Troy, pitched well far Hartford. ; AMERICAN 1W Team Standing. p.c. .679 .647 .560 .528 .521 .414 .877 .291 ' YESTERDAY'S RESULTS.
