Today the Na tionals have a comparatively B&fe hold on third place, and that St. Louis is not in the first division Is due to the setback meted out in that thirteen In ning game of yesterday. While tlie game u-nt most stub bornly fought from the outset It was marred in the extreme by consistent, persistent, and tiresome wrangling, bickering and complaining, both ildes somewhat at fault. Of course, whin there are extra innings it 1 to be expected that the time will stretch. But when a contest i scheduled to start at S..40 and tne clock shovB 6:45 at the linish. there is more than real baseball to blame far the exten sion. The first real row came when Grif fith decided to take Engei out. Henry had complained that his right hand t-aa injured, and while he and A in smith were exchanging places Walter Johnson was sent out to warm up. This seemed to peeve Connolly, but when the move was finally made to put Johnson in, the umpire was all over the field trying to drive the Grlffmen into action. They were defiant to the point where Schaefer was chased off the diamond, and in a later Inning he was Joined in his exile bv Altrock who. Connolly decreed, was altogether too noisy, although from the stand it could not be seen that the coaching was ex ceeding the usual bounds. Connolly was constantly trying to quiet com plaints from Griffith, and finally threat ened to eliminate the Washington man ager. The Nationals have always been con sidered one of the most popular teams on the road in baseball. Yesterday they ert Jeered. But the fault was not entirely with the Grin's. Before half of the game had been played, Mitchell became so exasperated at Connolly that he used unconventional language to the point where he was waived from the park. Later the Browns attempted to ring In a new ball on the Nationals. This precipitated another row. In which members of both teams Joined, and was not ended until the umpire had thrown the ball out of play. Such dilatory tactics as both teams engaged In yesterday are of the sort that are calculated to Dnns smiles to the faces of those who are working for the interest of the Federal League and other evidences of the apparent de termination of some organized baseball people to have the public become even more disgusted with the present con duct of affairs The crowd hooted and hissed yesterday, and there was no legitimate reason why Sportsmen's Park should not have been cleared of the throng long before 6 45. A peculiar feature of the thirteen innlng engagement was that th,e Na tionals used three pitchers who had worked the previous day. Joe Engei started, was wild, and tfte usual result followed. He donated two bases on balls to the St. Louis cause, and when he was forced to put It over they clout ed It for four hits, the sum total for the time he lerformed being three runs. Thl number vnw" thine lin fnr th Nationals had gotten away so well that' they haa thrice scored In their half of the opener. After the Browns had caught up, Johnson went In to relieve Engei. Dur 'ng the preliminary practice Johnson had been chasing flies all over the out field, as he did not expect to be callod upon to twirl. He did not have suffi cient time to prepare himself when he was rushed out. and was drenched In perspiration when lie took his place In the center of the diamond. He got by Ith what remained or the lirat Inning and went through the second In good order, but in the third he commenced to palpably weaken, and a brace or bases on balls, together with three hits, gave St. Louis two tallies In the fourth. He fairly slagged through the fifth and sixth, and finally became so wobbly Ayers was placed In the box. Ayers practically duplicated his feat of Sunday, and had he received the proper support, extra sessions would not have been required. The Qrlffmen finished their half of the ninth with a one-run lead, but when the Browns' chance came, Connolly, against the strenuous protests of the Waehlngton lans. sent a batter down, claiming that he had been nit by a pitched bait. The runner stole, and In the attempt to stop him at second Alnimlth threw into center, and the man on the bag continued to third. Then came a bounder to McBrlde which took a wild hop Just as It was about to be handled, and the even count was recorded. As Ainsmlth was the villain in the ninth, he was the joint hero with Mc Brlde in the thirteenth. The captain winJed out a trials with two gone, and THE BOX SCORE. WASHINGTON. ST. LOUIS.

The Nationals were forced to use seven pitchers in two days, here. With two Brownies on the paths, and Clarence Walker up, it looked as though they might get another run or possibly two in the fourth. Johnson resorted to strategy, and Instead of workln? his hardest simply eased up a floater, and Walker was so anxious that he made a vicious swipe at the ball, the result belne- merelv a swinging bunt, which was easily handled. It was the last out. One alibi offered for the defeat of the Nationals on Sunday was that they could not hit because of a number of coatless men In the bleachers in the line of the batters' vision. What the St. Louis people are asking Is If this same crowd moved away from In front Former Catholic University Star About to Bind Himself to the Detroit Tigers. P.OCHESTKR. N. T., July 10. When Fralik Navln, part owner and president of the Detroit American League Club, was In town last week he hod a lorg talk with Walter Plpp. the Hustler first sacker. when Plpp practically agreed to sign up with the Detroit owner.

After he had pitched the first few balls, Joe Engei was cautioned by Connolly against his style of delivery. He corrected the motion, and there waa pez.ee afterward. Here's a story printed here on Speed Elliott, well known in Washington as a. former University of Virginia athlete, who was lately coach at Charlottes ville: . ,. In the sixth Inning of the game, be tween the Browns and Nationals, dur ing an excltine rally bv the St. Louis team. Speed Elliott, of Boonevllle, who was sitting in a box, with his coat thrown over the rail In front of him. jumped to his feet and cheered wildly. When he sat down as the Innlne came to a close, and the Washington nlayers trooped by In front of his box. he no ticed some of his visiting cards drop ping from his coat pocket and fluttering on to the ball field. He seized his coat to stop the flight, and missed his blllfolder containing from J10O to $130. "Only the Washington players and two bat boys crossed In front of that box after my wallet.'' Elliot told a policeman. "You don't suspect any of them, do you?"' the policeman Inquired. "Shucks, no." replied Elliott, "they couldn't even steal a base. ' Roy Mitchell has usually been a most difficult man for the Nationals to beat, but yesterday they hopped on him In grand fashion, at the start, and had cused for the afternoon by the umpires In the fourth inning. Hamilton. hlB successor, was far more effective, and carried the Grlffmen alone In good fashion, considering- the limited time he had to toss to a catch er In the outfield, when Mitchell was summarily dismissed. Leverenr made his debut In the tenth, and flnUhed. 9 It was recalled that at Washington, Clarence Walker, a Na:ional discard, heaved away a game for the Browns through a crazy heave to the plate. Testcrday he -was a contributory cause to the downfall of St, Louis by the mis erable manner In which he tried for McBrlde's triple. Had he played the ball safe, and there were two out at the time, he might have stopped the Washington captain short of third base. The Nationals move on to Detroit tonight. - Chick Gandll Is feeling considerably better today, but at one stigp of yes terday's extra Innings, he had to r.sk for time out while he experienced a cough that could be hard In many parts of the park. - Once more Mike Mitchell JusMJled the confidence Griffith placed In him, whm the player was obtxlned fron- Pitts burgh.

It Is said that Gregg Is to be traded for two Bed Sox players, probably Yerkes and Henrlksen. Joe Lannln and Charlie Somers, the Boston and Cleveland mag nates, respectively, conferred at the Cleveland A. C. last night, and are be lieved to have reached an agreement. George Baumgardner, the Brownies' crack right-hander. Is expected to be ob tained by the Naps In exchange for BUI Carlsch and Doc Johnston. The Browns need a seasoned backstop, and might make an outfielder out of Doc Johnston, If he cannot beat out Leary for the first corner berth. President Somers Is very much In earnest about getting rid of those play ers who have failed to make good with the Naps this year. Since last ueason's great race, the Naps have be;n torn apart with cliques. Somers Intends to end this state of affairs. If be has to sell or trade every man on the team. "Tea, I'll listen to any kind of a prop osition that looks good to me." said Somer.i today, "but I'm no an;!. I'm not elvlnsr away good nlayers. The men on my team are good players, but they simply don't work well together. On other teams they would shine. The Yankees wanted Gregg, but Chance couldn't offer equal values for him.
