Jake Daubert still heads the list with .345. Max Carey, of Pittsburgh, has
resumed the lead In stolen bases with 18, but in most other departments the
Cubs are ahead, Williams in home runs with 7 and in total bases with 93;

WELLY'S £ CORNER
Old Sol came out in all his glory j
;this morning and it looks like a real'
baseball day all over the city. The;
irain this week put the fields in bad!
shape, but the boys got busy early j
land scraped off the mud. Amateurs 1
1 are anxious to get into trim as there
are indications of a close race this 1
| season for local honors.
Harrisburg fans were jubilant to
day over the transfer of the Troy team
to Harrisburg. Getting a tallender j
may not plea.se some supporters, but'
according to Manager George Cockill j
there will be some changes and bet- j
ter results are looked for. Last week
on the announcement that Troy was
to come to Harrisburg the Trojans
: won two games in succession.
The rowing season with college,
crews will end to-day at Poughkeep- i
sie. The annual regatta includes all
of last year's entries, and some new
aspirants. Syracuse has been a strong \
j favorite all, week, but owing to the
j recent change in coaches at univer
jsity of Pennsylvania, the results this
' evening may show the Quakers up
| near the front.
I On Monday night the members of:
I Empire Athletic Association will meet |
to hear the report of Robert Gillett.J
the matchmaker, on his program for
| July 4. It is to be an all-star offer- i
j ing. and every bout, according to con- \
(tracts will be between title contenders, i
! Krankle Erne, by his own rccjucst. will
| lie given another chance with A 1 Mur-j
phy, the Scranton boy. This pair fur-,
! nished a great battle several weeks
! Much interest is manifested by the |
'young shooters of Harrisburg in the 1
'beginners' events held by the various
sportsmen's associations. Another;
! month of these events and there will i
; be few who arc eligible to the begin
i ners' class. Local boys have been
i showing gooii scores in the v(eekl.v
; events and some have already entered
; the winning class at target shoots,
j Owing to the rainy weather which
has prevailed throughout the week.
|the eolf committee of the Colonial
Country Club, has decided to extend
) the time for qualifying for the Men's
| and Women's Match Play Golf Tour
; naments to and including June 25, and
] to advance the periods for playing off
.each of the matches in those tourna
ments one week. A number of en
tries have been made by both men
and women. Members, who have not
j yet qualified, are earnestly urged to do
iso oft or before June 25 and enter the
! tournaments, and thereby promote a
j better club spirit.
