The Indians apparently got enough rors ont of their system yesterday last the rest of the season nd they ere hopeful of taking the final game of te series from the Brewers. Tne rewers had no difficulty in copping ssterday's fracas, 8 to 3, following the •cent of the Tribe’s defense. In the first inning the Brewers took Indly to George Gaw’s offerings and outed out four solid smacks, produe ig only one run, however. Three stolen ases, two errors and three hits reduced three runs for the Brewers in le second and, when the first two men p in the third hit safely, It was enough r Gaw. Caret finished the game and lould have been scored upon only once istead of three times. In the seventh, two hits, a stolen base ad three errors produced two more uns. In only one inning did more thpn three sen face Trentman, the big Milwaukee airier. This was in the seventh when he Tribe obtained its only tallies. Shin ers and Wolf both singled. Covington ept up the good work by a terrific smash o right and scored later when Rehg rought Tex in with a sacrifice fly. In six Innings Trentman did not allow hit and onTy two men reached first ase, one on an error and the other by ree transportation. In the eighth Kores singled and it ooked like the Tribe was due for a rally. iut Cavet promptly hit Into a double ;illing. Only twenty-nine men faced Trentman n nine innings. John* Paul Jones was expected to be lanager Hendrick’s choice for mound uty today and John Paul was all set o turn back the Brewers. The Blues tomorrow for the season’s rind-up series. WASHINGTON PARK NOTES. George Gaw must have a Jinx on his rail. Nearly every time he starts a ame the Tribe defense goes sky high. *eorge is a good pitcher and should ave better lack. Only two bases on balls were allowed esterday—one by T'-entman and the ther sy Cavet. Three fast double plays by the Brewer fang kept Trentman out of some hot water. The Tribe pulled one. Gearin. outfielder, riteher and pinch hitter, made a great catch at the ex pense of Ralph Shinners. Gearin took the ball with his gloved band against the left field bleachers after chasing it riear across left field. The Brewers ran bases as if the Tribe defense men were all paralyzed. 81x stolen bases are chalked up to their tredit. Walter Kehg went hitless yesterday— a rare occurance for Walter. In the ninth Inning Bnes got on first by an error and so completed the cir cuit by the aid of three more Tribe mis plays when, Covington, Schreiber and Shinners tried to see which one could muss up the ball the worst. Rehg cut down two meu at the plate on singles to his territory. Milwaukee scored in five of their .nine innings. Easy for Brewers Indians. AB. R. H. O. A. E.

BASEBALL JURY HOPES TO MAKE SCANDAL SWEEP (Continned From rage One.) baseball. The arrangements for the world’s series had Just been completed when the indictments were announced. The penalty under the conspiracy act on which the indictments against the eight White Sox players were voted, provides a fine up to $5,000 and impris onment up to two years. One question which wns still unde cided today was whether the White Sox players were “on the square - ’ during the hot contest this season. When they lost a string of games daring the latter part of the season and practically threw away their chances for the pennant this year, ugly rumors started. GAMBLERS ALL “ON".CLEVELAND. Gamblers and book makers were knowu to have wagered heavy sums of money that the Cleveland Indians would win this year's pennant in the American League. Ban Johnson, president of the Amer ican League, admitted he had heard ru mors that the Sox did not dare to win the pennant this year. The gamblers who had bet on Cleveland, had the White Sox in their power through the ‘crooked dealings a year ago. according to these rumors, and blackmailed them Into losing. Tte gamblers are alleged to have threatened the White Sox players that if they did nob lose they would expose the crookedness of the 1919 series. Cleotte, the Sox star pitcher, failed miserably when called on to perforin in pinches this season when the race was tight. Manager Gleason even farced Cleotte to do several hours’ extra prac tice a day and then put him on the bench for a period. Rnmors of the scandal caused constant wrangling among the Sox during the year and the wonder was that they were able to keep In the pennant rare, even | if they were playing "on the square.” 1 Just before the recent Important series ; with the New York Yanks, one of the White Sox players who was "on the ; square,” was Interviewed by a United j Press staff correspondent. "Who are you going (o pitch tomor-! row?” the correspondent asked. “Cicotte,” was the answer, "and if ho doesn't win, we will mob him on the field." Cicotte pitched and he won the game. None of the player* indicted by the grand Jury are tinder arrest as yet. Eddie Cicotte left for hi* home in Detroit last night. Joe Jackaon remained in Chi cago after making his confession to the grand Jury, but was closely guarded by deputy sheriffs after he hud revealed it letter threatening him with death if be did not tell of his part in the plot. Cicotte is said to fear Federal prosecu tion because he failed to include the s’o,- 000 be got for "throwing” the games he J itched in his Income tax return. Both ackson and Cicotte signed immunity waivers, but it is understood that they will be given consideration because of the testimony they gave to the grand Jury and that both will testify as witnesses for the State when the cases come to trial. riTCHEIt IN' TEARS AS HE TESTIFIES. Cicotte told his story to the grand Jury with streaming eyes and halting tongue. He told how Kisberg, Gandll and Mc- Mutlin had broached the plan to him and how, because he "needed the money for his wife and kids,” he agreed to Join in the alleged conspiracy. He told how the eight men met in his room at the Warner Hotel here and discussed the plan and agreed that they could "get away with it.” "We lived up to our agreement,” Ci cotte said, "but we were double-crossed. Only three of u* got any money and none of us got as much as had been agreed upon. I don't know what became of the other $75,000. 1 think Chick Gandll got it, or else Abe Atteil. Chick was sup posed to slip us our share of the bribe. He told me later he never got it from the gamblers.” Then Cicotte told how games were thrown. He said: “I was asked to ‘groove’ balls over the plate so they could be hit and make wild throws if necessary; disobey Catcher Ray Schalk’s signals and boot batted balls if I had to in order to let Cin cinnati win. Some of the others were instructed to fail to hit, miss flea or grounders or make wild throws. There was no general plan, but we all knew what was expected of us. All performed quite trickily except Felsch. who clowned his misses of fly balls so ridiculously as to scare us all.” JOE TKLLS HOW HE PLAVEB TO LOSE. Joe Jackson, in his information, Is re ported to have said. “When a certain player would bat a ball out in my territory I’d tnufT it If I could—that Is, fall to catch It. But if It would look too much like crooked work to do It, I’d be slow and make a throw to the Infield that would bo too short. My work netted the Cincinnati team sev eral runs that the Reds never would have made if I bad been playing on the square.” Clcotte’s confession is said to have named Gandll as the ringleader in the plot, with Rlsberg and McMullln as his chief lieutenants. Gandll did not report to the White Sox this year and has not yet been located. It Is reported that he Is enroute from Los Angeles to New Or leans on an automobile tour. According to the best information to day the Sox players Involved In the scandal received (or were promised) the following amounts as bribe money from the gamblers: Eddie Clcotte, pitcher, SIO,OOO (con fessed). Joe Jackson, outfielder, $5,000 (con fessod), Claude Williams, pitcher, SIO,OOO. George Weaver, third baseman, $5,000. Oscar Felsch, outfielder, SI,OOO. Charles Rlsberg, shortstop, $2,000. “Chick” Gandll, flfst baseman, $20,000. B'red McMullln, utility, $15,000. LOCAL BASEBALL GAMBLERS WORRIED The investigation of alleged crooked ness In connection with baseball and the intimation that the investigation now being conducted in Chicago may reach to Indianapolis is canning considerable worry among persons back of the base ball lotteries which have been operating openly in Indianapolis. That such lotteries are being con ducted her© is a notorious fact.

He said te lost his nerve the first time he called on Judge McDonald. “I Just told him I was on the (square,” Jackson said. “He answered: ‘You are not,’ and hung up the receiver. “Then I went over to his room and started to tell him my story, as I fig ured they had the goods on me. “I told him I got $5,000 of the $20,000 promised me. It was banded me by Pitcher Lefty Williams in a dirty en velope. “Judge McDonald said he didn’t car* what I got,” Jackson said he "climbed” Risberg and McMullln about the $15,000 which he claimed was still coming to him. “They said, “poor simp, go ahead and First Player to Confess H&t *:• & •M; CHICAGO, Be|t. 2fc. —A man who, n year ago, was hulled as a hero, hurried down the dark hallway of tho Criminal Court building here Tuesday afternoon wttli an officer of the law on either side.

In 1877 l.ouifTille was a member of the six-club National League, of which Wil liam A. Hurlbut was president. The team was in first place and could lose more than half of Its game* and still win the pennant. It left on its final Eastern trip and the team began to lose consistently. Devlin, star pitcher, lost game after game, while errors by liall, Craver and Nichols figured In other defeats. Suspicions aroused, league authorities found the players to be dealing with mysterious persons by wire, employing a code. President Charles E. < haee of the Louisville Club, by playing one against the other, obtained the confessions of the quartet. They were promptly suspended bv the club and league and never were allowed to play another game in organ ised baseball.
