All amateur baseballdom is headed for North Capitol and L streets today, Where Cornell & Co., leaders In the Capital City League, and Pepco, wln MTB of thovlndependence League title, are scheduled to play off the tie in the Section A series. Both teams have gone through the amateur league season in their respect ive circuits, landing at the top, and both ended up the post-season series on Tuesday with the samo standing. To day's game will play off the tie in more than one sense, for the teams have met twice before, each being able to record a win. In the past post-season series in the A section Cornell lost two games, one to the Pepco team and the other to tho Bankers, due to "Chief" Greene's great pitching on Monaay. fepco's iwo ae feats were at the hands of the Cornell Company team and Postofflce, Walter Ferguson having one 'of his good days and handing the Power Company a blast. Manager Gray, of the Pepco team, is confident of winning 'the game today and is relying on Buck Barton. Barton has proven himself one of the best of the season's products In the pitching line. So good Is the Pepco twirler.that Manager Griffith Is going to sign tho youngster, and after a trial will place htm with a good minor league for sea soning. BartonM battery mate, Munch, will also get a trial with the Nation als and Is due to' aflix his signature with those of the Climbers. Not the least daunted because Barton Is to work for the Pepco teuin. Manager Cornell, of the Cornell Company team, Is sending in Forest Thompson, whose work has stamped him as tho logical choice to whip the Pepco nine, Thomp son will be backed up by Noyes, who has done great work behind the bat for his manager this season. The city championship virtually hangs on today's contest, as the winner will be champion of section A, and unless the greatest of upsets occurs, will be the winner of the Intrasectlonal, or finals, for the city title and the right to meet the Richmond champions! for the Intercity title. Not a little interest Is centered In to day's Bection C contest between the Government Prlnllng Office and South ern.

Today's contest will eliminate one of the teams which must defeat Park for the title. The possibility of another tic being declared rests with Park in its next battle. A meeting: of the post-season series committee Ts scheduled for tonight at which time President Robert H. Young, of the Amateur Commission, will sub mit a provisional schedule of the Intra sectlonal series games which are to start on Saturday. It is expected that the Section A series will be Anlshed, the winner of the Cornell-Pepco game being declared the winner of the sec tion. Ninth is already winner of the Sec tion B games and will represent the section against the Section A and Sec tion .C winners. The Section C winner is yet to be determled. The winner ot the Southem-G.

Statisticians, experts, and the like, who are at tempting to prove that the Giants have tho best ot it through finishing at home, or the Cubs have the worst of It through being on the road, are becoming Badly en tangled. The records happen to show that both Cubs and Giants have fared better on the road than at home. The Cubs, per example, won fifteen out of eighteen on their last Eastern tour. AgalnBt the same clubs at home they won only eight out of thirteen, a thick falling off. The facts are that you can provo anything you care to prove or anything that suits you by tampering with the classic dope. If you want to cinch your entry into heaven, excavate into the dope. You can prove the upward Jaunt 4s a pipe until you wake up hammering for admittance upon the gates of gehenna. If the esteemed Athletics have one long, lone shot left In their systems, with the pennant as a target, these next three days will make or break tho story of Its use. Back in July the Red Sox amassed their jump by thumping the Mackmen in highly vulnerable spots at a critical point of the journey. They now look to be as safe as such things go in this game, but while there's life there's dope. Mack's sole hope now is to wrench off the entire series and thereby start a flutter in tho harassed bosoms of the leaders. If he failB in this head long assault, there'll be nothing left to the yarn but a series of words with no definite object attached. By sweeping the boards the same being considerable sweep the game is too tricky to forecast what might happen. The big edge will be the leaders' whatever takes place. But it will be no certain edge if the Mack men run rough shod across their prostrate bodies with, out a check. On the other hand, the act of running rough shod over Wood, Speaker, Wagner, etc., is said to be some thing else again. Says Climbers Will Finish a Close Third BOSTON. Mass., Aug. 29. Despite stories of the past few weeks thht Con nie Mack had given up hope for a 1912 pennant and bend all his efforts toward building a 1913 winner," Mr. McGlllicud dy, manager of the Athletics, came here today prepared to "start his climb for an American League flag this year." "We are not so far behind the Red Sox that we can't catch 'em," said Mack today, "and while I won't make any positive assertions, I will say that In the thirty odd games we have left to play we will cut down that ten and a half games lead of the Red Sox .until there will be no daylight showing be tween the Red Sox and the Athletics. I do not believe Washington will last. Unless I miss my guess Washington will finish a close third." The local club management expected the largest crowds of the season when tho Sox and the champions lined up at Fenway Park this afternoon. Dineen Advises Player Not to Trust Umpires Reddy Kuhn. the little White Sox catcher, tapped a ball in front of the plate in New York and stood still whllo Ed Sweeney recovered the ball and tagged him out. Reddy thought it was a foul and hopped onto BUI Dineen. "If I hadn't thought It was a foul I would hae run it out," said Kuhn. "Better run 'em all out," retorted Di neen.

If the Red Sox are due for any 1912 slump, the same will show by Saturday's dusk or not before 1913 at the earliest moment. dash for the flag, Browns. Against other teams they made amazing head way. They had done their work well enough against Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, and Detroit. And then the Browns step in and wreck the show. Before this they were rudely stopped by the Yanks, who beat them four times in one series. But for these two ghastly setbacks from the two trailing clubs the Senatorial cast today would be within three games of the top. It's worse than beating J. P. Morgan out of a million in some stock transaction, only to blow the roll next day In some $2 bucketshop. To Senators, Red Sox, and Athletics, who figure the Yanks as the same old cluster of jellyfish and shrimp, we suggest they take another squint at the situation and dig thoir toes a trifle deeper in the sod. The propo sition is quite different from the moldy achievements of April, May, June, and July. Wolverton's people are now out to leave a big dent in each stopping place, using a kick In either hoof for this purpose. It was a long time between hoarse huzzas and ribald guffaws for Mr. O'Day, but after dropping fifteen straight to the Giants, the sound "as of a strong man tearing wallpaper" proclaimed Hank in the act of giving vent to a smile. Two shutouts pumped Into Mathewson and Mnrquard proclaimed a thin section of balm left in the Gilead of the much lifted from Big League Hitters of a Day Players Team. AB. H. T.B. Pet.

The race In the American League seems about over, the Red Sox rushing along with a ten-game lead, and giving few Blgns of slumping. The Nationals have done more than well, though, to be in tho first division, being a plcked up team without time to get the kinks out of the machinery. Now our battle is for second place, and a pretty tough one, too. Ban Johnson is lucky. Yesterday's defeat of the Nationals by the Brownies has averted a storm of criticism from the noble brow of tho boss of the American League. There Is absolutely no Justice In Ban John son's reasoning that Hughes should be absolved from the responsibility of losing Monday's gajne. However, yes terday's exhibition settles the question. Ban Johnson Is lucky. Welcome, Jack. Welcome once more to our glorious city, Jack Lelivelt. You might not have been the peerless star of starB when you wore a National uniform, but you always gave tho best you had. It wasn't your fault that illness prevented you from being a whirlwind on the paths, but you ran as fast as you could.

It is up to the fans of the metropolis to finish the Job by refusing to pay money to see a boxer who has fooled them and may do so again. Shooters do well.

That Cornell-Pepco game this after noon should bring out the crowd of the season and it is a safe prediction to make that both teams will do their ut most to win the honor.
