Before Match for Cup i Nottingham, England, July 9.—The American and German tennis represen tatives played their last practice games today for the second round, which begins tomorrow, of the Dwight F. Davis inter national lawn tennis cup matches, the draw* for which was made this afternoon. Although the weather has not been at all favorable for tennis, Harold H. Hack ett, captain of the United States teams,! says the American players are in good form. The Germans are complaining of the climate. This afternoon's draw is looked upon as being favorable to the American players. Froitzhelm is Germany's strongest sin gles player, so it is considered just an well for the American team that he should meet Maurice E. McLoughlin, America's champion, In the first day’s play. The showing made by Kreutzer of Germany in the all-England championship hardly justifies the belief that he can beat R. Norris Williams of Philadelphia. Although the Americans arc the favor ites for the doubles match they must be * in the best form to beat Germany's rep resentatives, Rahe and Kleinscroth.

Scout States He Offered $4000 For the Billiken Pitcher—Tells Ebbets to Grab Hun Nashville, July 9.—(Special.)—Larry Sut ton, scout for the Brooklyn National league club, who has been in Nashville for the past 10 days looking over South ern league players, announced tonight that he had made an offer to the Mont gomery club of $4000 for Pitcher Elmer Brown for delivery at the end of this season. Sutton was after Catcher Gribbens. but was so impressed with the masterly game pitched by Brown against the Vols last week that he immediately opened negotia tion for the brilliant Billiken slabman. His first offer was $3500, but he willingly met the above price of $4000, which was set by Manager Dobbs. “Elmer Brown Is not only by long odds [ the best pitcher 1 have seen in the South ern league this year," said the Brooklyn scout, "but lie is one of the most promis ing boys I have seen in many seasons," t'p to the time of Sutton's departure for Cincinnati tonight the deal for Brown had not been closed, but it was slated by Sutton, that he had urged President Eb l>cts’ Dodgers to lose no time in landing the mainstay of the Montgomery pitching staff. Manager Johnny Dobbs stated last night that neither Scout Sutton nor the Brook lyn club had made an offer for Pitcher Elmer Brown. However, the Billiken boss declared that several bad stated they deslred to bid for Brown's purchase be fore any sale was made. He added that he bad not declined the. reported offer of REPORT THAT FRANK MAY MANAGE MEMPHIS WRONG PRESIDENT COLEMAN SAYS THE QUESTION WAS NEVER DIS CUSSED-STATES FRANK WILL NEVER LEAD TURTLES The rumor that Cholly Frank would ex change his role as manager "with Bill Bernhard has been nailed with an abso lute denial by President Coleman of tire Turtles. For some time the report liafe been wafted about the circuit that the Dutchman would ugaln lead the Memphis team and that Bill Bernhard would man age the Pelicans next season. Despite the faults showing of the Tur tles. Boss Coleman declares that he has not even taken the thought of a new manager to mind. “So far I have not given the advUdbility of changing man agers a thought." said President Cole man. “I cannot say just whether or not Bernhard will be with us again next sea son. He may and he may not. But one thing is certain. Charley Frank will not be Bill’s successor, if one is named. There ; is absolutely no chance, and those in terested in the matter may rest assured that my word is final. Where and from whom the yarn originated is a mystery to me. The report that I have been ne gotiating with Frank for weeks in re gard to a change is a fabrication of the veriest sort. “Neither Frank or myself has ever dis cussed the matter. Indeed. 1 doubt if Frank himself ever dreamed of return ing here. The Dutchman will never man age a Memphis ball club as long as 1 am in charge.” — -- HORSE SHOW AT GREENSBORO OPENS Greensboro.

RIVA Thousands View Body in State—The Excitement Runs High Havana, July 0.—Not since the death ot Maximo Gomez have there been such widespread manifestations of grief as at tended the announcement this morning that General Armando Riva, chief of the Cuban national police, had died during the night. The body was escorted at noon to the council room of the municipal palace, where it lay in state. Thousands passed through the chamber during the day. President Menoc&l. in officially an nouncing the death, directed that all hon ors due a major general dying in action be accorded at the funeral ceremonies tomorrow afternoon. The supreme court is still discussing the mode of prosecution of the assailants of General Riva, the impression being that the court will decide to exclude the contention of congressional immunity in the case of Representative Arias and Sen ator Vidal Morales and direct their trial before the ordinary courts. General As bert likely will be arraigned before the supreme court. Manifesto Issued The vice president of the republic, Enrique Jose Varona, has Issued a mani festo to the conservative party, of which he was formerly the leader, urging prompt prosecution and declaring that the con stitution never intended that legislators should be immune from prosecution fur ther than to protect them in the dis charge of their public duties. Public excitement is still running high in consequence of rumors that friends of General Riva intend to wreak sum mary vengeance on Asbert and that the adherents of the governor, who are nu merous in the rural districts of Havana province, are plotting to effect a rescue and precipitate a revolution. The precautions which the government has taken appear amply efficient to pre clude such action. Guards patroling the prado and Central park were doubled this afternoon. The route of the funeral cortege tomorrow' will be lined w ith regu lads. Rumors of reprisals by followerers of Governor Asbert continue rife, mainly directed against Secretary of the Interior Aurelio He via, and the mayor of Havana, General Freyre Andf'ade, both of whom are W'ell guarded. The autopsy today disclosed two bullets of different calibre. Indicative that at least two of General Riva s assailants fired. The* mortal wound in the abdomen was fired by Governor Asbert, accord ing to General Rlva’s ante-mortem state ment. The president of the provlncal council, Senor Bustnio, is acting as gov ernor of the province in place of General Asbert.

President Lee in his statement com pared freight conductors and trainmen'3 wages in various sections of the coun try. Based on a 10 hour day and a 100 mile run, he said, western conductors receive $4.18 a day and trainmen $2.78, and in the south the respective wages ate $4.10 and $2.75 as against $3.68 for conduc tors and $2.48 for trainmen in the east. Chairman Elisha Lee of the managers' committee in reply stated that "the asked for increases would amount to $17,000,000 annually, following a previous apprecia tion in 1910 of $30,000,000," and that the principal argument for higher pay based on the wages of similar employment west and south is fallacious, because “these higher rates were secured througli ccc-rclon.” r—~—-- 7 i DO.XOHl'E SERIOl SLY ILL * » -4 • Philadelphia, July 9.—Frank $ f Donohue, star pitcher of the f • major leagues years ago, is crit- ♦ • ically ill at his home here.

In the eighth inning Mayer was struck on the thumb of his throw-ing hand while attempting to dodge a fast ball. Al though the receiver gamely remained at his post in the ninth, he retired in Clif ton’s favor in the tenth. Braving the peril with a badly damaged throwing arm, Ell Marcan was rapped on his left wrist in the first inning. He was re lieved at first by Carroll, who scored one of the two runs, but re-entered the game. Mayer's injured digit was badly swollen last night, while the Injured middle lin ger has never recovered from the foul tip in Memphis. Walter will probably be withheld from the game this after noon and tomorrow, but may return Sat urday. Despite his recent injury Mayer has been pegging nicely to second. Constant trouble with his right arm has about rendered Idl Marcan hors de combat, for since the opening of the year he lias suffered from minor maladies. While the crack yesterday is not serious, It may develop into a very sore spot. Foxen is scheduled to pitch for the Barons this afternoon, while Memphis' choice lias not be announced. MRS.
