Aloysius Club Causes an lpset by Getting Tie Score in Post-Season Series
Tied With Aloysius in'Last
Inning of Second Post
Season Game.
Manhattan Defeats Andrews by
Six to Five in Sec
tion AA.
Fans who so freely predicted a walk
away for the Cornell team In section A
of the post-seaEon series arir today
leady to stop predicting- result3. for the
Tigers came within un ace of being de
feated by Aloysius yesterday In the sec
ond game of the series, the score being
tied in the last Inning.
More excellent fielding and clever bnse
runnlng featured the day. and two close
rontests were on the boards, Aloysius
and Cornell playing a tie game, 6 to 6.

and Umpire Uetts called the game.
The double umpire system was used in
Section A Nesterday, and will be In
vogue hereafter when Venable or Betts
are carded to work. This worked in
excellent shape except 'in the third
inning, when a quick throw by Smith
to Mullen at third caught Greer off the
base. Betts, who was behind the plate,
ruled the runner out, while Venable,
umpiring bases, called him safe. Betts
peld full sway, however, and the man
was called out.
Manhattan Beats Andrews.
At first and W streets, Manhattan
cime up from behind and noed out
Andrew & in a seven-inning game, 6-5.
Oakle'i started In the box for Manhat
tan, but got his bumps, and was lifted
In the second. Andrews scored four
runs In the first two innings, and seemed
to hae the contest well in hand, but
the Independence leaders kept pegging
away, and In the fifth drove Chism off
the slab, and counted enpugh runs to
Today Sherwood will play Cornell.
A ith Porter on the slab. Manager Love
thinks his Sunday School champs can
ge Cornell .a game fight. The TJgers
are going nene too well, and while they
are looked upon by the majority as
winners, it is freely predicted that there
will be moie upsets before the season
is over. Manager Cornell never picks
Ms battery until just before the game,
but the probabilin Is that either Wood
en "r Gallagher will start, with Rlch
in ml as resen e.
Manhattan will again be seen In ac
tion, ti.l1- time with Petworth, at Thir
tttnth and D streets northeast. Birch
probabl will again be In the box for
I'etworth, while Burley will twirl for
the Manhattan boys.
Alosius played an excellent game In
the field, going through the contest
without a mlscue. Some of the stops
made by the clubmen were fine bits
of fielding, noticeably the play of Wld
mayer on Mcran, when he got the Cor
nell batsman's fast grounder back or
second and threw the runner out with
out recoiering his balance. JIarsden
also made two good catches In right
field,' both coming with men on and'
two out.
Cornell's fielding was not up to the
standard, both ilullen and King fall
ing down twice. Mullen's two errors
were on poor throws to McDonald, at
first, while King threw poorly once and
let one go through him.
Charlie Moran's two two-sackors
really saved the contest for Cornell.
His first one, over the left field fence,
came In the sixth with King and Han
diboe on bases, on which Charlie hit
tlio first ball pitched, while his second
cno scored Mullen with the tying run
to the seventh.
Marceron got a peculiar triple In the
fifth He hit to deep left, tho ball
struck between a post and the fence,
and lodsed on the top of the fence
He made an extra babe while O'Reilly
was hunting for the pill.
"AI" Handiboe showed aptitude with
the willow, getting all kinds of hits.
The first time up he lined to left, sec
ond time up he placed a perfect bunt
down third base line, and had the base
before Sullivan reached the ball. The
third time up he grounded between
third and short, and the fourth time up
xhe lined over second. All safeties.
Wldmayer got a fortunate double In
the second. He hit a high fly back of
first base right on the foul line, hlch
neither McDonald nor Moran could
reach. The ball took "English." bounc
ing Into the crowd along the line.
Consistent hitting accounts for all of
Cornell's runs, with the exception of
two, which were started by batsmen be
ing passed. Three of Aloysius' runs
were scored by runners being given a
life by errors.

Hackenschmidt Followers
Think He'll Down Cham
pion Labor Day.
Many Wrestling Fans Think Reno
Episode Will Be Repeated.
Odds Are on Gotch.
HT'MBOLDT, Iowa., Aug. 15. Will
Frank Gotch defeat Hackenschmidt on
I,abor Day, or will It be another Reno
Thero is no question but that the
Humboldt grappler will go on the mat
us big a favorite as was Jeffries over
Johnson, but should the comparison
end there' Many would like to know,
and. Judging from the mall received by
Gotch and his training partners, there
is considerable doubt In the minds of
wrestling fans the country over, and
now and then a question or two perco
lates from across the water which gives
an Indication of the world-wide inter
est in the eent.
Tho coming match Is an anomaly In
American sporting events. Wrestling
never has had a countr-wide Interest
before. The biggest matches ever
pulled off usually lae been confined In
interest to the localities where the
match itself, was held or the neighbor
hood In which one or the other princi
ples lled. Apparently this Is going to
set a precedent, although In the past It
li.ut been hard to get the average fol
lower of sports enthusiastic In any par
ticular mat contest.
Looks for Record Crowd.
Although Gotch himself doesn't
care whether there nre one thousand
or fifty thousand people at the match,
as ho has his guarantee, the Indica
tions are that It Is going to be a
world beater In attendance, even
though It might not be entirely de
served on account of the past per
formance of one of the principals.
Hai-kenschmidt's barnstorming tour
of the countrv last veai left a bad
taste in the mouth of wrestling fans,
as It was charged that he consistent
ly dodged one or two of the best men
In the country, noticeably Yussif
This is one of the reasons whv Gotch
Is going to trv to make such a tour
impossible for Hack in the future. He
siy.s he Is going to trv to defeat him
in the quickest possible time and
make It so decisive that there will be
no excuse for the Russian to linger in
this countrv
Now, will Gotch be ablo to carry out
his program' It is no use trving to
start an argument on that score in
Gotch's home town No, not If you
xpect to get three square meals a
day here Backing Gotch is like put
ting monev In the bank to the average
cltl7en here However, manv a sock
and bankbook will have to stand a
frisk before the dav of the battle
Gotch expects to win. in fact he s
confident of throwing Hack In two
straight falls, according to confiden
tial information I have received while
here For public consumption the
champion is more conservative
"Best Have Been 'Beaten."
"You see. It Is this way," said Gotch
today, "I have set mv heart on winning
that match. No man was ever more
serious than I I feel thnt I must wfo,
but no man can make a positive promise.
The only thing I can promise Is that I
will go Into the ring in oetter shape
than I eer was-Jn, and that I will try
to make a thorough Job of It.
"Now, the best of them have been de
feated at one time or another, and pos
sibly it my turn th:s time. But if I
should be the loser, let no one say to my
face that I laid down. I never have in

I will admit that in some matches I

Gotch Dovm to Weight.
Gotch expects to meet Hack weighing
about 20S or 209 pounds. That is what
he weighs now and he plops to neither
reduce nor take on flesh during the next
three weeks. That is also more than
he weighed when he met Hack at Dex
ter Park pavilion.
Hack has announced that he will go
'nslde the ropes weighing 230 pounds.
That does not frighten the champion.
He Ih used to heavyweights, and that
was one of the reasons why he engaged
Joe Rogers early In the game.
It is also on record at the training
camp that practically every day he has
picked up that mountain of flesh and
bone which sags the scales at 290 pounds
and lifted him from the mat clear up
to his shoulders. He does not do that
Just for fun or for the delectation of
the spectators, but simply to see if he
is going into a decline with the passing
it is not a weight-lifting contest, this
hurling the 290-pounder over his shoul
ders. It Is part of the wrestling game
and Is done on the instant and before
the spectators have had a chance to
catch their breaths. And Joe is not
passive about It either. It hurts 1ns
pride and he wriggles, kicks and
squirms to get out from under, for it is
usually a case of three points on tho
mat an Instant after Joe hits the can
vas, and that ends the match which Joo
Is paid to prolong as much as posslBlc.
Who Is the Stronger?
There Is no one here whom you can
make believe that Hackenschmidt is a
stronger man physlcallv than Is Golch,
and there is ample room for doubt. If
Hak is stronger, it Is because he uses
more science In his moves, but even
here there is plenty of latitude for ar
gument When It comes to the science of wrert
llng it is admitted that Gotch Is in a
class by himself. Right now he could
give pointers on the game to such old
wheel horses as "Farmer" Burns, Evan
Lewis, and Fred Beel. He has not en
tirely relied on the teachings of others
He has thought out some of the most
dangerous holds himself and is always
on the Job figuring out more
Champion Enjoys Life.
He enjovs life to the fullest, which
acounts for the absence of the grouch
of which nractl'-al'v evciv athlete In
tralnlnir is nossesscd.
Gotch has another peculiarity, and
thnt Is that he never willfully tries to
"Fhow up" anv of his training partners
before the public. Ther Is not a man
at the camp, which he cojld not make
look foolish in his exhibition bouts, but
when he pins his partner to the mat
It Is bona fide and with as little of the
spectacular as possible.
For that reason there is absolute nar

joy the work. Thev are not there to
cheer him up. as was the case with
