With Middleton Out of Way
Indians See Bright
Hoping for a quick recovery ont of
their Mendaj gliimp the Indians today
fared the Toledo Hens In the second game
of the series.
•Tones or Petty was slated to hurl
against the gang from the Mattntee end
from the outcome of the contest Mon
day it was that it would take
high-class pitching to stop the invader*
this afternoon.
Manager Hendricks planned a change
in the lineup today in an effort to In
crease the Tribe's hitting strength. Rehg
was to return to third base and Shlnners
sent to centerfield.
This change eliminates Wolf, who has
been holding down third base, but who
ba* not been batting along with the other
Third base has been the one outstand
ing weak spot iq the Indian's lineup
since Ollie O'Mara pulled his priae boner,
when he hopped to the outlaws and un
less O'Mara is permitted to return to the
fold shortly it wiU be up to the Tribe
management to go out and get a third
baseman by either purchase, trade or any
other means.
The Indians bumped Into the Hens
Monday, when the visitors were right on
their stride and It was quite impossible
for the Tribe to get any place. The
score was 6 to 0.
Jimmy Middleton was on the mound
for the Hens and he was In such grand
form that the Indians collected only six
scattered hits.
In five of the nine innings the Indians
41d not get a man on fieet base. The
Hoosler* had their beet chances to score
in the first, eighth and ninth Innings,
but Middleton was too strong and they
were forced to suffer a shutout.
Therefore, with Middleton out of the
way. the Indians see a chance In
the series. *
Around the A. A. j
Rogge was not np to form and the
Hns collected eleven hits. Dx-er was the
chief slugger with two doubles and a
slngl®. He also drew two walk*.
Mike Kellv got In the game when
Wichland re'tlred In the third. “Ou
Mike" got two hits.
The visitors scored one marker in the
first round, one in the third and three tn
the sixth. In their big inning they got
three singles and a walk. With the aid
of Tribe errors their three runs came
without much difficulty.
Fox. sub Toledo shortstop, made him
self prominent by getting two hits.
Sehreiber and Rehg each got two safe
ties out of the few made off Middleton.
Roger Bresnahan rejoined his club last
night. Roger bad been detained on the
road but was expected to display his
enstomarv explosive tactics at the park
this afternoon. That victory yesterday
placed the Duke of Toledo in better
Joe Kelley, New York Yankee
scout, is here with the Hens. Joe
usually is found in the Hen vicinity
whenever Roger is absent.
"Our Mike” Kelly takes keen delight
in beating his home town team. Mike's
arm is still bad„ but he manages to
hold up his end of the game and he
usually hits hard against tho Indians.
The Hens have plenty of players, and
it is said there is some doubt about
the team living up to the A. A. player
Ben Dyer is ft whale of an A. A. ball
player, especially when he is at Wash
ington park.
Intruding today’s game there are
fonr games remaining in the present
series. A double-header will be
staged tomorrow.
The ra'n Sunday evidently threw the
Tribe off its stride. Lack of pep was
noticeable when the Indians took the
field yesterday. At-any rate the Indians
attracted wide attention by winning eight
Schreiber la giving signs of coming
•>ut of his batting slump, but Jimmy
Smith seems to have fallen Into one.
According to n statement given out in
Chicago last night President Hickey of
the American association agrees With
Kan Johnson in the Ollie O'Mara case,
and as a result the Indianapolis club
probably will have a fight on its bands
in its effort to get O'Mara reinstated.
O'Mara has been barred for five years,
along with Evans of Kansas City, Wag
ner of Columbus and a few other Jump
ers, according to Hickey's reported in
terpretation of the recent jumping rule,
arid instead of trying to favor the clubs
hit if Icoks as if Hickey intends to line
up with the other baseball rulers and
shout for the extreme baseball penalty.
Owner Smith of the Indians was at
work today attempting to plan a fight
that would bring O’Mara back, and It is
possible that he will go to the courts
for aid. O'Mara has written both the
national commission and the Indianapo
lis elub asking for reinstatement. Smith
did not suspend O'Mara. and for that
reason he believes that he linn a right
to use Ollie. He has much money tied
up in the player and doesn’t feel like
being robbed of both player and finances.
The baseball rulers did not offer to re
imburse the Indianapolis club, but sim
ply ruled O'Mara Ineligible. o%ner Smith
Is getting tired of holding the sack.
Outfielder Arnold Rtatz, whom the
Tribe was to obtain In the O'Mara deal
with the Red Sox before the National
commission knocked the deal In the head
by outlawing O’Mara, has been re
leased to the Los Angeles club, accord
ing to a Boston announcement.
The Paints added n few more points
to their standing yesterday by wallop
ing the trailing Blues.
The Millers blanked the Brewers and
the rain blanked both Colonels and Sen
Now the Saints are trying to slip
something over. According to a South
ern association report. Infielders Martin
and Smith, property of the Saints, have
been traded to Atlanta for In fielder
Brazill. It seems that the Saints over
looked the matter of asking waivers on
Martin and for that reason Manager
Hendricks of the Indians today sent a
wire to President Hickey demanding an
investigation. The Tribe Is in need of
an lnfielder and doesn’t mean to stand
dumb while Infielders are shipped out
of the league without Indianapolis being
given Its chance to act. Jap Martin Is
a capable ball player and Hendricks
mans to go after Jiim if the Sai"ts have
been found cheating.

favor, upon which the American, by
brilliant playing, took the next two
games and ti e set, 7-5.

NEW YORK, June 22.
Pop Cornwell of Brooklyn tells us a
pip that happened at the old Ardmore
Sporting club of Maryland years ago.
"Just before the main event on those
days," said Pop, "they used to have a
battle royal. Eight colored guys wore
put into the ring, and the man who was
on his feet at the finish got ail the Jack.
"There was a black gent in tho ring
the night I speak of, and his monicker
was Deacon Ellison. He was to black
that jou could see him in a dark room.
"Well, Deacon tore after the other
seven guys this night in tbo battle royal.
He kicked, elbowed, chucked and tripped
them He finally downed the whole seven
and left the ring on the opposite side
from hi* opponents.
"He collected the money and we forgot
about him That night after the show
was over i was talking to Kid Sullivan
on a corner. There in a doorway near
the street car terminal was tyie Deacon.
He wss waiting. He was watching the
people get on the car on® by one, and
still ho waited.
"‘Do you live around here, boy I'
asked Bulllrun of the Deacon.
“ ‘No. sub,' piped Ellison. 'Ah live in
Sous Wash'u.'
“ ‘Why don't you get a car? You’ll
mlse the last ous in a minute or so,' said
‘Ah'rn Just a bit careful,’ chirped the
Deacon. ‘There’s many n way to win a
Isttle royal, but I didn’t stop to think
they's only one wny home."'
Fred Fulton la back in town looking
for a tnuss. He was quite successful out
in Beattie, winning evory bout be had.
He tried to get permission to box in
Frisco, but Dan O’Brien, the pollen cap
tain who handles th* fights, refused to
allow him to show. A year or so ago the
police put on a benefit. All of the boxers
In town appeared except Fulton. He got
himself in bad then, and it looks as
though he Is through In tbs city by the
Golden Gate.
Kid Norfolk, the “dark horse" slugger,
almost turned Leo Flynn's hair white up
in Rochester recently. Ho fought John
Lester Johnson tip there, and after the
tight met Johnson on the street and
fought ten more rounds, boots, teeth and
elbows allowed. An hour later he met
Johnson again and rolled ernund the
block with him, and at 11 o’clock, at tho
railroad station, staged another rough
and tumble go.
"I don’t mind that guy liking to fight,"
piped Flynn, "but anv time he starts l
want box office. There's no nourish
ment in those street fights, giving every
one a free look."

by the Southern League
MEMPHIS, June 22.—Under an agree

of directors of the Southern associa

pitchers signed by Little Rock after
their release by the San Francisco club

Martin from a decision in federal court
here which made it mandatory that he

The meeting of the directors was
called to hsnnonize differences in the
association resulting from the signing of
the two players by Little Rock, after
they had been dropped by the San Fran

Sectional Meets on Saturday—
Notre Dame Strong.
United Press Sports Editor.
NEW YORK, June 22.—With Bab®
Ruths, Johnstons and Tildens, Gardners
and Hagens and Dempseys and Carpen
tiers fighting for the sport top, th®
American Olympic team has been lost
sight in the rush of sport.
The aspirants for Uncle Sam's team,
however, will come out of the dust this
week where they have been hidden and
take a place in the first file.
The sectional trials for the team sched
uled Saturday in Philadelphia, Chicago,
New Orleans and Pasadena will put
through the first sorting-out process
what perhaps will be the largest numbef
of candidates in history.
From the results of the Intercollegiate
track meets, it seems probable that M|f|
team ‘will be constituted largely of colP
lege stars.
Pennsylvania, winner of the intercolle
giate championship, probably will have
the largest representation with a good
chance for landing six stars on the team.
Notre Dame looks good for a delega
tion of four and California and Stanford
may land three on the team. The New
York Athletic club most likely will have
the largest club representation.
With an army transport at its disposal
the American committee will not be. re
stricted in the selection of team. With
facilities for taking a team of 230 to 300
to Antwerp, the ohances for “dark
horses” are unusually good.
Selection of u coach and trainer for
the team is a duty the committee is set*
ting aside until a later day.
