(By Wagner.) Sad Bill powers Is o nutty that if h goes for a walk in the woods the fcqutrrels chase him. His wants are rew and simple. An outing-' at the moving pictures makes him as happy f:s if somebody crowded a million dol ars on him. When he isn't pitching for Hartford he sits on the bleachers With a lurid covered copy of "Frank Merri well's Double Shoot or Only a Cabman's Daughter." He and Bugs SRe'sigl of New Haven could make a hit in vaudeville as the Squirrel Brothers, Daffy and Dippy. But if he is a trifle dizzy in the steepl. Powers can and does pitch He had th Mechanics pawing the air vesterday and as a result Hartford downed Bridgeport by 3 to 2 almost copping second place. When a nit was needed to break up the pastime, Powers made a few hocus pocus signs nd the batter popped up a towering foul. Dick Tucker hurled for Bridgeport, ffhe Union City -wonder did well ex cept -in the fifth when he took the levator to the top floor and allowed h Senators to grab three runs.

MAGNATES SORE AT CH AS MURPHY .KATIOXAL league moguls say CHICAGO PRESIDENT'S BAV LNGS AGAINST LYNCH HURT GAME. - Bitter feeling is - shown by several Rational" League- magnates over the ttack made by Murphy and Chance tf the Cubs on President Lynch and Roger Bre6nahan. Murphy's charge that Bresnahan's Cardinals might not .try. very hard to beat the Giants has been scored unmercifully by other flub ow-ners. President Ebbets of the Brooklyn club, when asked for his opinion of Murphy yesterday replied "Just ouote me as saying that Mur- Thy. to say 'the least, is decidedly indiscreet" v "Murphy's crack is groundless," 6aid Secretary Locke of the Pittsburg club B - Tuesday. "The Cardinals have Wtten the Giants consistently and fre quently this year. Everybody knows that Bresnahan wants , to win as many games as possible." "Chance's statement that Lynch ( is th- best player the Giants have' is absurd,." said another club owner. "Lynch hasn't helped the Giants a bit when you notice that- the Cubs 5iave made a show of McGraw's men in the list two series." Murphy is quoted as saying he will begin another . fight . against Lynch's re-election next winter. He says he has the support of at least three oth- 5 deadlock. , HEW I1AVEEI FANS DON'T WANT SPMKGFJELO FOR SUNDAY GAME - f - (New Haven Journal-Courier.) Claiming that John Semon, presi ient of the East Shore Amusement rompany, has no jurisdiction in the matter. President Bill Carey of : the Springfield club made it known yesterday- that Ihe Springfield club will ?!ay at Lighthouse Point next Sunday. Springfield has played here during the ,ast two Sundays and Semon was mak ing an effort whereby some other club could be brought here. We will play according to the .-schedule," said Carey, "and as Semon isn't running the league I don't see wfcat authority he (Semon) has to say sshat team will play at the Light. I take no stock in the stories going the Tf mds to the effect that Springfield Fits up a weak game here. What raore can-the-fans ask for than the tfat at the Light last Sunday? We Mil play here, that's all," said Carey :IJ conclusion. If . f VHITE SOX WILL PLAT I 1 NORTH EfXDS TOMORROW -The White Sox accept the challenge Jei the North Ends and will play them ilsmorrow afternoon at 3:30 at the flats, i reiser and Egan will be the battery I? r the Sox, and the Meerbach broth- ELEY MUST PAY FINE BEFORE HE CAN RETURN TO OUTFIELD JOB Gardella of Hartford: Assessed $15 for Bad - Language to Umpire (By Wagner) 1 . Before Skipper Eley returns to his job in the Bridgeport outfield this af ternoon he will have to fork over $5 to the Connecticut league treasury. Eley was; fined several weeks ago in Holvnk( hv TTmnire Held for crab bing from the bench. Before the fine was due Eley was suspended. Presi dent O'Rourke notified the umpire not to allow Eley to play today unless the ooin is forthcoming. President O'Rourke also announced today that Gus Gardella, the Hartford shortstop, is assessed $15 for his little outbreak' yesterday when he was chased off the lot by Umire Mullaney. The chances are that Gardella would have escaed with a $5 fine If he hadn't called the arbiter a vile name. . Uncle Jeems is, determined to stamp out the custom of using vulgar language to the umpire. The player who merely kicks will get off easier than the one who hands out the rough talk. Cooney Best, a pitcher who worked for the old Danbury team in the days when Jack Rose, of gangster fame, ran the club, was in the city today. Best was shaking hands wjfch his old friends. He is now In business in Cin cinnati. Terry -Rogers was with Dan bury when Best was a pitcher there. The old pals put on one of the "Those Were the Happy Days' , acts this morning. An "affidavit from Outfielder Jack rn nt Srvrinarfield in the Jimmy Cur ry case was 1 received by President O'Rourke today. Dell swears tnat m th Holvoke dressing room before the game in ..which' Genest was maimeA, he heard Curry declare he had his sDikes sharpened so he could "get" Genest that day. This affidavit, to gether with a statement ny Manager Jack Zeller of the Ponies win De ror wardefl to the national board in an ef forfcto; have Turry : tJarred from or? ganizedr ball. - It "is said that another big league scout is coming to look at Shortstop Cabrera, the Cuban wonder now with Waterbury. If Cabrera doeen't go to the big league it is a cinch that some class A. A. league will draft him. The trouble with Cabrera is: that he has gone stale. He plays in Cuba all win ter and then without a vacation starts In, for. the summer campaign. Howie Baker of this city got a hit in three" times up for Cleveland yes terday. He accepted thre out of four fielding chances. The Cleveland Plain Dealer has the following about Bak er's work in a recent game, 'against-the White Sox:. '"The, redoubtable Ed Walsh was in the box for Chicago. But although he was the first great pitcher Baker ,the youngster from the Nutnteg State 1 ever .had been up against, the recruit stood up to the plate with -all the confidence of his famous namesake the third baseman of the Athletics and hammered out a' slashing single to right' field which sent home Cleveland's second' and third runs." : - - - Announcement of the accession of three new players was ..made by the management of the Boston Americans today. Options were .exercised on Third Baseman Harold Janvrin of the Jersey' City International league club and on Pitcher "Dutch" Leonard, now with Denver of. the Western league Pitcher George Foster of the Houston Texas club,' has been bought. These players will report at the end of their respective seasons. - . The Cleveland club announced today that . it has secured Second Baseman Ward McDowell of the. Portland (Or.) Northwestern league team, to report next spring. McDowell is leading his league in. hitting, with a mark of .357. . , One week ago , today the Mechanics tasted the sweets of victory. CUB ROOTERS WILD AS GIANTS LOSE TO CHICAGO Chicago, Aug. 16 Rube Marquard of the Giants made a frantic attempt to stop the onrushing Cubs here yester day, but before the fracas passed the fifth inning stage the record holder was carted from the fray on a shuU ter. Rube pitched air-tight ball for four rounds and then collapsed. In the fifth inning the Cubs pelted his southpaw slants to ail sections of the outfield and for a brief spell it rained doubles and singles. The carnage was terrible, and when Manager McGraw finally decided to shelve the Reuben five Chicago runners had, panted over the scoring pan- Before Marquard blew up in the fifth the Champions had scored one run, which represented their output for the day. The final verdict was, Cubs 5, Giants 1. The defeat chopped another game from the Giants' rapidly . diminishing lead, and they are now in the van by only 52 points. The Cubs played like a lot of frenzied demons and frustrat ed the Manhattan contingent at every point. The Champions also fought desperately, but they could not offset the effect of Marquard's ascension. Giving credit where it is due, Lurid Lou Richie deserved the lion's share of the praise for the Chicago victory. The Ambler humorist has taken the place of Jack Pf iester as a Giant kill er, for there is something about Lou's curves that completely mystifies the New Yorkers. The comedian never was better in his life than he "was yesterday. There was no comedy stuff about Richie's work He was as. seri ous as an undertaker at a funeral. The merry Richie twinkle was missing from his lamps, and he was out, for serious business. Only six hits were made by : the Giants from their new Jinx, but sev eral times they had Lou gasping for breath, when his support tightened, and pulled him safely over dangerous gaps. Twp brilliant double plays helped Lou immensely. One was made after the Ambler youth purposely passed Meyers stocking -the bases, to As was predicted last night. Red Fisher was given his release last night. The big fellow has not been hitting lately and thinks a change will do him good. Owing to the fact that Hi Ladd did not care to return to" the game the management decided not to release Skipper Eley last night. Eley 'will be given another chance to re deem himself and will go back into the outfield. Perhaps the long rest may start him on a hitting treak. Dick Tuckey had only one bad inn-; ing. He retired the Senators in one, two, three order except in the fourth and fifth. ' Dick has, one bad fault which is due to his inexperience. He doesn't study the opposing batsmen. When a man like Benny Kauff plainly shows his weakness is a high one in side, Tuckey gives, him one on the outside just where-he wants it. But another season in the minors will give Dick the knowledge to study the base man and then hand him the kind he doesn't like. ' Billy. Vann, the Hartford backstop, looks like a coming star. He is awk ward in his movements but he makes a noise like a regular maskman. He is also a dangerous sticker as his rec ord of two hits -in three times up, shows.- The Mechanics go to New Haven to morrow. Manager McCann will use Sunny Sexton on the mound and ex pects to grab a victory. Manager -Tom Connery of the Sen ators had lots of pep. When he went to first base, in the ninth he yelled, "Strongest team we ever had, come on now boys. Clean 'em up." Hi Ladd says he is satisfied with the old .pool-room' business. He retired- from baseball with his reputa- tinn nn a slllfKr 6CUre. and he IS afraM if iA didn't deliver the basehits the 'fan$rwpurdeer .'fi,i Murray Parker had " something on the ball yesterday and downed Hol voke bv 3 to 0.

After Rube was removed, Otey Crandall went into the scrap. ThSj plowboy's slow shoots proved to be more puzzling to 'the Chance troupe than Rube's, fast felt hand delivery. Doc had little trouble inv squelching the Cub riot; hut he was summoned to the scene too late. The patient was dead before Crandall's buggy en tered the ball yard. Chicago is. baseball crazy about this series,, and one of -the largest crowds in the history of the Chicago National League club viewed the fray. Every possible inch of space in the stands and on the field of battle was occu pied, and , long before the Opening of hostilities the home club was obliged to close the gates.- The crowd was estimated at between twenty-fiye and thirty thousand. Had there been room for all, the attendance would have ex ceeded forty thousand. BOXING New Tork, Aug. 16 Arthur Pelkey, of Chicopee. Mass., has been substitut ed for Jess Willard to fight Luther McCarty 10 rounds at Madison Square Garden, Monday night. Pelkey recent ly met Willard and .was only out pointed because he is much lighter. Chicago, Aug. 16 Chicago fight fane, today, were jubilant over the news thai a match had been arranged be tween Lightweight Champion Ad Wol gast and Packey McFarland. They predict a victory for the Chicago stockyards fighter. New York, Aug. 16 Johnny Kilbane and Johnny Dundee, are expected to box 10 rounds as an added attraction at the big performance of Johnson and Jeannette before the St. Nicholas club, this fall. If the Romanian Boys have an open date for Sunday the 18th, the Berk shlres would .like to play them at the Bast" End : .Freight "-ards- or the Mud Flats. Answer through - Farmer. WOLGAST AflD M'FARLAND GO 3HATCHED TO fiOX AT MADISCO SQUARE GARDEN ON . SEPT 27. New York, Aug. IS. Articles were signed last evening at Cadillac, Mich., the' home 6f Ad Wolgast, for a ten round bout between Packey -McFarland and the world's (lightweight champion at Madison, Square Garden, in this city, on Friday evening, Sept. 27. , According to the terms of the match Wolgast is guaranteed the sum of $22,500. The amount which Mc Farland will receive , . was not an nounced, but it. is understood that the stock yards champion will work on a percentage basis with the Garden A. C, his share of the money to be decided by the amount remaining af ter Wolgast'B guarantee has been de ducted from the total receipts. Mov ing pictures will probably be taken of the fight. I The articles of agreement were signed Wolgast, Emil Thiry, who manages McFarland, and Billy Gibson for the Garden A.C. Gibson left here on-Tuesday for Chicago and after a conference with Thiry and McFar land, he accompanied Thiry to Cadil lac and met Wolgast.' - Wolgast and McFarland were matched about a year ago for a bout in Milwaukee, the Chicagoan agree ing to make 133 pounds at 3 o'clock in the af tern6on in order to get. the champion into the ring with him. In a telegram received from Manager Gibson last night no mention . was made of the weight agreed upon for the coming bout, but it will undoubt edly be the ame as before, since Wol gast would hardly allow McFarland to stale above that, figure.- Tom Jones, -manager of Wolgast, has been vigorously denying for the past few days that Wolgast would clash with McFarland, a he evident ly realizes that McFarland so far out classes Wolgast from a bbxing stand point that such a bout would damage the standing of the champion. Wol gast has looked with favor on the match and the signing of the' articles occasions no surprise. Wolgast has engaged in two bouts in this city, one with Knockout Brown, in - which he was outpointed, and one with One-Round Hogan, which he won in two rounds. Mc Farland 'has s fought ; seven or ' eight bouts In New York, his last being with Matt Wells, whom he outpointed most decisively, Over the long route Wolgast might defeat the less rugged Chicagoan, but in a ten-round en gagement it is difficult to see how the champion, can expect to make a good, showing against the wonderfully clever McFarland. The showing of Wolgast against Joe Rivers on July 4 indicated that his operation last November has left its mark, ah d" this makes his chances all the poorer. National Leagwo. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS. .

The Cube' - pitching staff was x aug mented yeeterday by the arrival " of Fred Toney, former Cub, and rover Laudermilk, brother of the erstwhile St. Louis pitcher, from the Louisville American Association club. The Giants have purchased a new pitcher. He is Goulait, , left-hander, from the Indianapolis team in the Am erican Association. The newcomer will not report until next fall. It is said that lot of the major league clubs were after him. . The pinch pitcher is Ifetting to be as important a feature in the national ft.m as ths rcinch hitter. The pinch pitcher is no other than the rescue man, the boxman who goes in to save a pitcher or pull a game out of the fire. The two greatest pitchers of the type to-day without doubt are Walter Johnson of the Nationals and Ed. Walsh of the White Sox. In his prime, Matty of -the Giants had quite a repu tation. All clubs have a pinch pitch er, but few of them class with Walsh and Johnson. ; Every club in baseball has a jinx it's part of the game. For a num ber of years the Superbas held a hoo doo . over the Cubs, but this year the Phillies ' have transferred places. The Pirate lso have been giving the Cubs a lot of trouble this year. - Here's a little encouraging news! A despatch from the Windy City states that Mordecai Brown will be of little use v to the Cubs during the rest of Ko 5iSn The three-finarered fling- i hurt hn knee in a came at Boston recently and the Injury is giving him a lot or trouble wnen ne goes vo mMinH Ma.narr OhanrA it is said. is not banking on Brown much , while the pitchr's nue troubles mm. ih& Clanti ar In Cubvillfi Chance may fling his new pitcher at tv Ynrfcom i n newcomer a name is Pierce, a left-hander, secured trn.m fh Rrranton.

In one game in tne tcw Tork State League he fannsd twenty-two .batters, which is some rec ord. Jim lAvender declare' that Pierce has all kinds of curves but lacks con trol. Chance evidently must inrax something of Pierce, otherwise . he would not nave recaiiea mm. Two willing workers on the Brook lyn team are Zack Wheat , and Jake Daubert. Wheat has had a bad year this season and the trouble has been due to a bad ankle. He has had a lot of trouble with it, and at times has hardly been able to get around. That is the real reason why he has slowed up this year. The wonder of the age is Hans Wag ner, probably the greatest man in the game tolday. Although he has seen years of service the bow-legged Dutchman continues to put them where they ain't and makes sensation al stops. The other day in Brooklyn Hans was asked when he intended to retire. The German's face beamed with a broad smile when he said: "Aw when I make enough money to buy a house. Remember the Boston Bloomer Girls that celebrated team Of femin ine ball 'players?

HIGH PRICES FOR JEANNETTE JOHNSOfl FIGHT Unless something happens to upset the plans 'the Stf Nicholas A. C. man agers', who have signed Jack Johnson to box ten rounds with Foe Jeannette on September 25, will charge $10, $20 and $30 for seats. The Sixty-sixth street rink has a seating capacity ac commodating about 4,000, no more. The MCMahons figure that the receipts will mount up in this manner: 2,400. seats at $10 each ....... i. $24,000 800 seats at $20 each 16,000 S00 seats at. $30 each 24,000 Total, 400 seats, netting $64,000 It was learned yesterday that John son will not receive a cash guarantee of $25,000, but will accept a percentage of the gross receipts, . together with 60 per cent, of the moving picture money. Jeannette. already has agreed to take 10 per cent, of the receipts. The Mc Mahons were able to sign Johnson be cause their baseball teams, composed of negroes, sent word to the champion to heed no other offers. But on the best of authority it was 'said yester day that the McMahons might be will ing to sell the whole match to the Garden A. C. for a few thousand dol lars in bonuses. Manager Gibson of the Garden A. C had not returned from the West yes terday, but he wired to the club offi cials that he had made no attempt to sign Johnson upon his arrival in Chi cago; had not made any offer and didn't want the match. Gibson offer fed Johnson $20,000 two weeks ago and the latter refused.' The other Garden A. C. people said yesterday that they wouldn't take the match- now as a gift. . The Garden people insist, however, that Johnny Kilbane had agreed over the long distance phone a week ago to box Eddie 'O'Keefe in the big arena and had also secured an engagement for his sparring partners on the same night Kilbane's sudden shift in signing to box Dundee at the St. Nich olas A. C, with a wire to the Garden to postpone the O'Keefe bout indefi nitely, therefore, has increased the ire of the Garden ciub, which still insists that its matches have been broken up by the St. Nicholas managers. Meanwhile 'the members of the State Athletic Commission, Frank S. O'Neil and John J. Dixon, refuse to discuss the appearance of Jack Johnson in New York city. They said yesterday they had not been officially notified that the big match had been actually arranged.

His name is "Al" Demaree, and he is ' pitching this season for the Mobile club. He will join the Giants before the present season is over and will be ieen at the Polo Grounds some time in September. DemAree is not a young ster in baseball. He has worked through the Southern League in other f, seasons and never has had a particu larly poor record. Quite the contrary, he has usually been on the winning side of the sea son and it is said that he would have been a much more efficient pitch er with the Chattanooga club if he had been given the best of support by his team mates. He has had fairly good control all Of the season. He can throw a good curve ball, and he has speed enough when he is compelled to use it. . One of the best recommendations ia his favor this season ia his ability to go well in extra inning games. II has been called upon to pitch more than any other man in the Southern League, and it is the universal ver dict that he has done better the long er he has pitched. That is a recom mendation which will go a long way with MeGraw who has a "yen" for pitchers of endurance. There isn't a douOt that he will get a place with the Giants next year if he shows skill and ability in the spring training season at Marlin Springs.
