tipton Will Send Shamrock
to America For Final
I Races
London. August 20.—Since his re
iurn to London from America. Sir
'hoiras Lipton has set about the
ask of completing this arrangements
or next's year's contest for the
Lmerican cup in earnest says the
Tachting World. The most import
nt decision so far arrived at, Sir
'homas told a writer in that peri- j
nlc.al, is to send the 23-meter Sham- j
ock to America early next year to
ct as a trial In the tuning-up

IV Asked who would have charge
lof the British boat, Sir Thomas re
plied W. P. Burton had consented to |
lail the challenger in the race for
■he American Cup. and also take
lharge of the 25-mcter Shamrock.
I May Make Changes
| "Naturally, he will have his own
Professional skipper," Sir Thomas
Idded. "Mr. Burton will also be re-
Winnsible for engaging the crews of
Bkth boats, and, in fact, he will be
charge of the whole of the
Wals and the actual races on the |
other side. Charles E. Nicholson, her
designer, is going over at an early
dato for the purpose of thoroughly
examining Shamrock IV."
i. "Do you think any alterations ara
likely to he made in her?" Sir Thorn-i
ts was asked.
"That is a matter which I am leav
ng entirely to Mr. Nicholson's judg
ment. Manv experienced yachtsmen
be of the opinion that Shamroc', IV
I far and away the best boat I have
ver had, to represent me in this
great contest."
"If you lost this time, will you
challenge again?" .
"I have the greatest hopes that I
will he successful in this my fourth
attempt to bring back the Cup, but
If I am not successful I can only say
that I shall give Mr. Nicholson an
order to build another boat."

fifth Game—To be decided lat
Contestants —Reading Railways,
winners of Allison Hill Pennant,
either West End team or the Mo
tive Power team, winner not yet
Labor Day afternoon at 3 o'clock
at Island Park, will see the winners
of the Allison Hill and the West End
Leagues meet in the first of a series
of five contests for the championship
of the city. The nxt evening the
scene will be switched to the Allison
Hill diamond, while Thursday evening
of the same week the two teams will
battle up at the West End grounds.
The fourth game will go to the Island
Saturday afttrnoon, September 6. If
a is necessary, the date and
place of meeting will be determined
later. So decided the officers of the
two leagues at a meeting last night.
While the setting of the dates and
the places for the battles- w?s the
major item in the evening's discus
sion, practially every little detail was
worked out for the series. Reading
Railways will represent Allison Hill,
while either West End's team, or the
Motive Power aggregation will be
the nine to fight for the honors of the
younger circuit. The uptown leagues
pennant will be decided within a
short time, one or the other
of the twd mentioned teams.
Game on Each Field
The arrangement of places for the
games will doubtless meet with the
approval of the city fans. Neither
the West End grounds nor the Alli
son Hill diamond will suffice to ac
commodate tlw crowds, that will
gather. But one game sat least, will
be played on each field, and this
should meet with the approval of the
patrons in both enas of the town.
After this argument has been set
tled in the city, the Dauphin-Perry
circuit and want a crack at the city
winners. Ail season there has been
a standing argument in the D.-P.
as to whether Harrisburg "ball" is
as fast as that played by the smaller
towns. Once the city championship
is decided, the winner of the Dau
phin-Perry will come forward ready
to contend for the honors of Central
While other independent teams will
also lay claim to first honors, it has
always been held the way to sift
down the question as to the premier
team is the organization of leagues.
Next season should see an expansion
of all three of the organizations, as
other clubs in this vicinity are clam
oring for berths.
Expect Great Battle in
West End Baseball Game
Rain stopped local twilight games
last evening. The heavy rains dur
ing the day made it impossible to
play on either the West End of Hill
League fields. The big game at
Fourth and Seneca streets will be
played this evening. Motive Power
will play the Engineers and Firemen.
Both teams are on edge for this bat
rlc. The Motive Power is anxious to
get near enough to the leaders to
make the final result doubtful. To
do this it will be necessary to win
three games and West End lase
The Engineers and Firemen have
been factors in the race and recently
have shown a pace that makes the re
sult of every game doubtful. The
tailenders can make it very unpleas
ant for the leaders and runners up,
and will go after every game Just
the same as if they were next to the
top. This means a battle extraordi
nary this evening. Both the rail
loaders and Motive Power promise
some surprises. The batteries will be
a secret until Jthis evening.

Meet Klein Team at Island
Park Friday Afternoon,
August 29
Ilarrisburs fans picked the Cin- [
cinnati Reds to win the National j
League pennant. Not because these i
pacemakers arc leading. Long ago
when the chase was close local en
thusiasts told their opinions about
the Cincinnati team. It is a team
of baseball players and all over the
United States fans are in a happy
mood because the pennant is going
to a new city.
Those stars who are making the
Reds famous will bo in Harrisburg,
Friday. August 29. If it does not
rain Cincinnati will meet the Klein
team on H. A. C. Held at Island
Park. This promises a treat for lo
cal fans. It will give them an op
portunity to see the boys who arc
bringing a change of conditions in
the National League.
An Old Organization
The Cincinnati Reds have the old
est trade mark of any club in the
country as they were organized in
1868 and have been known through
out fandom as the Reds ever since.
The present owners purchased the
club from John T. Rush in 1902.
While the team has not landed the
National League champioshinp it
has twice won the State champion
ship from Cleveland of the Ameri
can League and finished third in the
National League race of 1918.
This spring the company was re
organized under the name of the
"Cincinnati Baseball Club Co." and
the following officers elected: Aug.
Herrmann, president: Charles J.
Christie, vice-president: C. J. Mc-
Diarmid, secretary; Louis C. Widrig,
treasurer: W. J. Friedlander, direc
tor; Patrick J. Moran, manager;
Frank C. Bandroft, business man- j
agcr; Heinic Groh,. captain.
Strong Financially
The club's stock was reduced !
from $500,000 to $350,000 and it I
started the season of 1919 in better
financial condition than ever be- ]
fore. One of the Reds' assets is a
grandstand costing $400,000, which, ]
with the pavilion and bleacheis, |
seating 23,000 people. Although
Cincinnati has the smallest popula
tion of -any city in either major
league, it is one of the best base
ball cities in the country, and un
der the skillfn 1 management of
Moran is regarded as sure to be a.
big factor in the race of 1919. Back
in 1882 wher. Cincinnati was in the
American Association, the team won
its first and only pennant.

Militiamen Have Trouble in
Getting Start; Scores
Are Good
Mt. Gretna. Pa., Aug. 20.—Rain, |
hail and fog interfered with'yester- j
day's program of the Pennsylvania
Reserve Militia rifle matches. Har
risburgers who are in charge here
were kept busy keeping shelter over
the heads of the shooters! A foggy
atmosphere in morning held up the
program for two hours. In the
afternoon when a heavy storm pass
ed over, shooting was stopped and
the program carried over until to--,
The first part of the match, con
sisting of slow-flrc shooting at 800
yards, was completed in the morn
ing, but the second part, shot from
a distance of 1,000 yards, had bare
ly been begun when a furious
shower of two-inch hailstones, the
largest ever seen in this vicinity,
swept the ranges and drove the
marksmen scurrying for shelter.
The match will be completed to
morrow morning before the start
of the long-range contest, which is
scheduled for that day.
General Crcsswell Present
Brigadier General Charles T.
Crcsswell, commander of the re
serve militia, who arrived In camp
Monday evening, was an interested
spectator of the shooting. Himself
a marksman of no mean ability, and
formerly a member of one of the
State teams, he takes a keen inter
est in the scores which the men of
his organization are running up.
"They are doing remarkably good
shooting," he said, "and I am told
that their records are improving
from day to day since they have
been here."
"This year's scores are far ahead
of last year's," he continued, "but
it is hardly fair to. make a compari
son, as then the men were laboring
under the disadvantage of using the
old Remington rifles, while now
they are equipped with the new
| 1919 model Springflelds. The old
i Remingtons were qualified only for
shooting from a range of one to
three hundred yards, while this year
the men are making good records
from a distance of 1,000 and 2,000
"Of course the whole object of
these annual competitions is to keep
up the interest of the men in good
shooting and encourage them to
practice on their home ranges. Ex
| pect marksmanship is a necessity in
j any military organization, and our
i men need not be ashamed of the
records they have made.'

Patterson, the Australian team. |
They tcAk the title from its de- I

of Yonkers, N. Y., in five spectacular \
sets, 8-6, 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-2, on the
courts of the Longwood Cricket !
Although the Americans got only
two games in the final set, it was j
perhaps the hardest fought of the
five. The cloek-like steadiness of
Brookes and the terrific smashes of
Patterson were the deciding fac
Every available scat w.is taken
and throngs stood to watch the play.
At times the applause and cheering
sounded like that at a football game.
While the majority of the gallery
naturally hoped for an American
victory, the applause that greeted,
the beautiful playing of the Anti
podeans was almost as enthusiastic
as that given the defenders.
