;J-g-,;r". . THE WASHINGTON TIAOS, SATURDAY. VUi . 30, 1914. 12 LIVE SPORTS ijfSSL I Griff's Players Downcast at Losing Their High Position. "-'? :"- GRIFFIN DOWNUST ATSLIPTOSECOND But They All Agree That Mack-j men Will Not Go Home at the Head of Procession. McBRIDE ORATES A LITTLE Players Busy Doping Out Pos sibilities of Defeat and Vic tory at Fenway Park. By THOMAS KIRBY. BOSTON. Ma5s.t May SO. The Gnff taen are slightly downcast at seeing the world's champions once more bacK In first place today, but they all insist that the Capltalian forces again will lead the procession before they return home "We should have won that second game, anyway," says Captain McBrlde, and that defeat only serves to make the boys fight tho harder. Connie Mock may be leading today, but he won't stay up there long." The players working, under Clark Griffith were busy today doping out! heir standing following possible vie-! torles and defeats In thf holiday bill with the Red Sox. Bill Carrlgan has an earnest band of players here, who believe they have a chance, to win the pennant, and not one rf the games billed for Fenway Park will be easily won. t Rankin Johnson was beaten by his famous namesake, but. In sitting in 'lie reflected glory of the greatest piit-fcer that baseball knows, he was in deed fortunate. For four innings the Bostonese knew not what the meaning was of a base hit. In the fifth. Gainer tmached out a single to center, but be fore h- caught his balance he was cut down by a single throw from Williams to McBride. tn the eighth, with one out. Gairer doubled to .right, but he never survived to reach third corner, because the bounder from the batter was taken oare of by the pitcher to third base. The second game jesterday was one of the most intensely Interesting games that has been staged in Fenway Park. There was every combination that ihoi.ld make a contest on the diamond alluring to the men who consider base ball the greatest magnet of all out door sports. The Washington defense, that has v steadily set back pitchers who thought that they had a chance to turn back the Washington offensive movement, crumbled in the first game. It -all but mifsed that point In the second game. in which the Grifflthlans hung on to the last moment and were robbed cf possible vlctorj' and a probable even score In the lowering shadows of the afternoon when the umpire called Lewis safe on a play to first base that ap parently Tiad the runner out by a stride or a hair stride on a Dounder to aic Bridc Ordinarily the Washington ball j club is willing to endure almoBt anv-1 thing that is handed out to it by anj umpire, but yesterday there seemed to be an unanimous opinion that 'he arbiter had errer in his judgment. No matter how you may stand, or 'rom nhat angle you may view the aspirations of this good looking young fielder of the Washington baseball team, you have to give It to him for the mar velous and wonderful way in which he has entered into the cquaslon of driving, orctag and storming the Washington baseball team Into the position into which it has not only been figured upon bu' decided. Shanks has done It repeat nil through his fielding, and has re asserted 'hrough h!s batting Tm Murnane. president of the New England League, declared -today, after ha. ing seen the Nationals in action that Moellfr -and Foster paired up w'ith the best bit and run combination that has ver been wen since the expansion of h- American League. There is a pretty well authenticated s'or among th- ball players here that Howard Ehmke. Los Angles pitcher, will join the Nationals as soon as his season on the Coast is finished. When the Nationals attempted to play ud here In the spring they found that the weather was such that no 'dividual who had conditioned himself r the near South -auld figure how he ould come back here in hhdpe. But mw the Nationals are rowdlng and 'i-rclng battlin; and storming the best earns In the universe for the uppr Tni lubs oxer which they tan com rrand control When th" schedule of the American League was arranged, it was not thought that tire National? would be -ompelled to compete against such op position ac has been o?fered Of course, ne coming of the Washington ball club was looked upon as ope of the biggest vents in these parts, and the attrac 'on was shown yesterday by the fact that the two clubs were paid for S.372 SECOND GAME.

President Gilmore. of the Federal League, in a brief statement today, said; yWithln sixty days there'll be a revolution In baseball." . ' That was all he .bad to say but the startling statement followed a general talk on cc.dltlons. especially those re lating to the possible' Jumping of stars from the major leagues -to the new or ganization. Gilmore Indicated that th result of the Chief" Johnson case could make no difference in the coming revolution. He led on to believe that" there would be a lot of wholesale raiding of National and American League, clubs within the next two months, but gave no' indication how soon the battle would start. Judge Foell said yesterday that he ex pected to give a decision on Pitcher "Indian" Johnson injunction suit on Tuesday, so the result of that case may be known then, provided another post ponement doesn't take place AMERICAN LEAGUE.

Fifty canoeists In as "many craft are today competing for The Tlmea Trophy In the twelfth annual regatta -of the Inter-Club Canoe Association, on the Broadwater ot, the Potomac river. At as early aa 8 o'clock theflrst of the canoes from the down-river clubs, pass ed through the locks 'of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, and throughout the morning and up until the very hour for the start of the first event, a constant line of gayly decorated craft made Its way up the five miles of canal tho J Sycamore island, off of which the races are being held. The entry list today Includes repre sentatives from every boat and canoe club In this section, and from aa far away as Baltimore, a host of pilots have come here to cbmpete for the practical trophy which has been hung up by The Times, and for the gold, sllyer and bronze medals of the Inter-Club Canoe Association. The Times Trophy, con sisting of a complete camp eating and cooking outfit twenty-eight pieces of armor steel ware Is to be presented to the canoeist scoring the greatest num ber of points In the entire regatta- This announcement has caused many of the owners of .the little little craft to enter as many as three and four of the events, giving each an opportunity to in the useful camp equipment which has been offered by The Times. Here Is the prize list, not including medals: Winner In all events Times Trophy: novice singles, Baldwin camp lamp; novice doubles, pair of floating canoe cushions; championship "singles, Damascus canoe ax; championship doubles, canoe paddles: mixed doubles; pair of moccasins; club fours, electric flash light; tall-end race, steel fishing rod; upset race, electric lantern; cruisers' race with carry, thermos bottle: expert singles, hunting knife, and for the tilting contest, vacuum lars. Conditions for promoting today's re gatta on the upper Potomac could not be better, according to the commodores of the various canoe and boat clubs which are entered, and who Inspected the site of competition this "morning. A slight breeze was blowing across Broadwater, but not sufficient to Im pede the progress of the canoes. All of the muddy appearance, caused by the rain of Wednesday had dlssapeared and the clear blue color, -which Broad water shows in fair weather, had re turned. At Aquia creek, forty miles down the Potomac river, the Capital Yacht Club, of Washington Is todav holding Its Decoration Day regatta for sailing yachts and motor power boats. More than a dozen sailing and yachting craft are at the mouth of Aquia Creek where an event for each type of boat is being held.

At last the bass season has opened and the sportsmen who have curbed their impatience whila their moM easily satisfied brethren were frolicking with the perch and rock, are off In hordcs to their favorite haunts. Thty started last nignt, armed cap-a-plc In khaki, flannel, moleskin and wor sted. Almost every train that pulled out of the Union Station bore its quota of anglers with imposing uccompany ment of brimming bait buckets, cases of rols, tackle boxes. lunch, thermos'" bot tles and other impedimenta. The stream of flsnermen continued this mornlns- The electric cars were loaded with them, going to the nearby basin, to the nver; to the little streams- they individually swear by. Up the river, down the river, some of them into the river. Beats are scarco. and the approved classes or bait, too, yet they have all sallied 'forth with the undying hope which characterises all llshermen. true to their cloth, that the lacks will be overcome, and tbe day will bring Its own reward ot a heavily laden string of the plump screen beau ties. Apropos of basa fishing. It Is not gen erally known that the little niver across from Georgetown, which embraces Analostan Island, Is one of t'ns most promising bass grounds within sntnn distance of the city. A comparatively short distance up the old stream, the shallows near shore, where old logs He half submerged and a few tempting piles of brush promise lurking shadows, the bass are to be found, probably capricious as to ap petite, tot tbat is one of .the inalien able prerogatives of the bass. and. If one is-lucky, the whirl of a. spinner, the! gleam or a live minnow, or tbe gentle flip of an alluring fly on the surface will be rewarded by the thrill of a master strike, which will -whip slender rods and make the easy running reels scream and burn. Mr. Bass is a tricky fellow, and his delight, when hooked; Is to wrap your line about a hidden log or obstruction, give a mighty heave, and vanish with a flirt of his independent tall. The landing net must be close at hand, and the first opportunity seized to boat tbe catch. One Is never certain of this kingly fish until he is secure In the bottom of the boat and then he Has been known to Jump out! Boats may be obtained from Tram mel! Great Falls; Fletcher. Lock Cove; two boathouses. Three Sisters: "Reyn olds or Barker, foot' of Thirty-fourth street; Cumberland, foot of Twentv slxth street; Bftlley. under Anacostla bridge, and Miller, District end of Ben nlng bridge. Bait always to be purchased at fol lowing boathouses: Reynolds' Bailey's, and Milter's Also at certain fishing tackle stores.
