BETTER HITTING NEEDED IF THE INDIANS ARE TO DO ANY CLIMBING IN THE A. A. STANDING
TRIBESMEN HIT
ROLLERS AGAIN
BEFORE SAINTS
Leaders’ Punch Evidently Too
Much for Present Indian
Lineup.
TWO BINGLES, ONE RUN
The Indians evidently have collapsed
before the aggressive attack of the Saints.
Kelley's leaders grabbed the first game
of the series Wednesday by a piece of
luck, bin yesterday it was so different
that the Tribesmen did not have a chance
anywhere along the linp.
The Tribe got miserable pitching,
which counted them out early, but they
also failed to bit, getting only two safe
ties.
FANS STILL
LIVE IX HOPES.
Better pitching was expected on the
mound for the HoAsiers today and loyal j
Uns still hoped that their favorites ,
would show an improved morale, though
it looks as if the Saints have too much |
punch for' them. i
At an.v rate, there are two games left
in the series and an even break would
cause fans to forget the two contests lost,
but the odds are against the Tribe with
its present lineup.
Charlie Whitehouse took the mound
yesterday and he was so wild and the
Saints grabbed such a commanding early
lead that it was useles to use up aftother
pitcher under the circumstances, espe
cially with Southpaw Ooiimbe going so
strong that there was every indication
that he had the locals beaten.
When the contest ended the Saints had
an easy victory. 10 to 1, marked up
through hits, bases on balls and error*.
Truly, it was a bad day all around for
the Indians.
The Saints scored two runs tn the
opening inning, one in the second, three
iu the fourth, three in the seventh and
one in the ninth.
RUSSELL GETS
OCR ONLY KIN.
The Indians didn't break through un
til the eighth, when Russell tripled and
scored on an out.
Whitehouse gave nine bases on balls,
and in the face of that kind of pitching
the Hoosiers were handicapped.
Asa sample of what b3d pitching does,
there's the case of Dressen, the Saint
lead-off man. In six time* at the plate
he got four walks, singled once and
reached first oa an error.
In only two Innings were visitors kept \
off the paths It's a wonder the Saints
didn't’ make their total more than ten.
Paul Jones was slated to hurl against
the leaders this afternoon, weather per
mitting. and if he showed tue stuff he
l*ad last Sunday h was nearly an even
chance that the Tribe would chalk up a
victory.
HERE'S SEATON AGAIN.
LITTLE ROCK. Ark., June 4.—Pitcher
Tom Seaton, formerly of the San Fran
cisco club of the Pacific Coast league,
who, with Pitcher Casey Smith, formerly
of the same club, has been barred from
taking part in Southern association
fames bv President John D. Martin, to
ay joined the local club of the Southern
association.
A court petition is being prepared by
the of the local club to com
pel President Martin to approve con
tracts of Seaton and Smith.
MORAN DROPS EVANS DEAL.
PITTSBCRG. June 4.— Manager Moran
of the Cincy Reds stated today that he
had about made up his mind to nave no
more dealings with Pitcher Bill Evans,
who jumped the Kansas City club to go
to the Oil City team.
Evans was down here during the stay
of the Cardinals and offered to join
Riekey's team if paid a large bonus for
doing so. He had already received a big
increase for going to the outlaws and
now ig willing to jump back again at
a price.
Around the A. A.
L —WITH EDDIE ASH —
Louie Wolf was slated to play third to
dav in the event that St. Paul used a
southpaw. Rebg was to be shifted to cen
ter field, displacing Zwilling. who is not
nitnug.
Several of the Indian* are far be
low Class AA standard with the bat
' and unless they pick up it will be use
less to pay out good money for new
pitchers.
Roxey Roach, outlaw agent, wag In the
stands yesterday, but stated he was not
looking for Indianapolis or St. Paul
players. Roxey said he got crossed up
on the association schedule and landed
in Indianapolis when he should have gone
to Louisville. All of which means that the
Colonel and Brewer managers had better
watch their athletes.
There w-ere a number of ‘‘outlaw" fans
In the stands yesterday also and they
kicked up a fuss over the team’s sad
showing The whole machinery of the
Tribe has been active in an effort to
holster, but Class AA talent is not avail
able. If any of the fans can locate a few
stars Owner Smith will appreciate the
information.
HOW ABOUT IT. JACK?
Behold tiie baseball manager!
Whenever winning streaks oornr.
The pop-eyed baseball fans aver
He is a wondrous wizard.
But when he hits a losing spell
They rise apd give him merryhei
In words no cultured tongue can teH
And roast him to the gizzard.
—Chicago Herald-Examiner.
In five of the nine Innings yesterday
the Tribe failed to get a man on base.
Umpire Hart of the National league,
who formerly officiated in the A. A., was
a visitor at the park. He was en route
to St. Louis.
Tex Covington Is deeply discouraged
over the bad luck he Is having at the
bat. He usually connects solidly, but
they won’t fall In safe territory.
The Brewers opened up in the sixth
yesterday and scored four runs, beat
ing the Colonels, S tn 4. St. Louis
Cardinal scouts witnessed the game.
The Hens scored a shutout over the
Millers and Toledo again sees visions of
a pennant. Middleton was In form.
Pongo Joe Cantlllon is still searching
for players and hopes to sign Outfielder
Nixon, who is wandering aronnd some
where In the cactus belt.
Mulrennan went big on the mound for
the Senators until the sixth inning, then
blew up and the Blues walked off with
the game.

Smith Tells Tribe
Troubles to Majors
as He Seeks Talent
Says Desertions Are, Wrecking
Team Other Magnates
Begin to Fear Menace.
NEW YORK, June 4.—William C.
Smith, owner of the Indianapolis Ameri
can association team, is here looking
for players.
His club has almost been wrecked by
desertions.
"One of my best players deserted a
few days ago. Others have jumped and
I'm up against it,' 1 he told Col. Til Hus
ton, part owner of the Yanks.
It seems contract jumping this season
has grown to be a serious menace to
baseball. The magnates are beginning
to fear conditions that have not existed
since the days of the late Federal
league.
'I he jumping became so frequent in
the minor leagues that John H Farrell,
secretary of the association, gave the
deserters thirty days to rerurn to their
clubs, or be permanently barred from
organized ball.
When several major league stars de
serted their clubs for Independent teams.
