TIGERS ARE TAMED.
Detroit, Sept. 8. With their ancient
Jonah, "Doc" White, on the slab, the
Tigers were a somewhat subdued out
fit today and were handily beaten by
the White Sox, 5 to 2 being the figures.
The game was a rather listless affair,
the Sox, who by grabbing this one
could get back within striking: dis-
tance of the leaders, having about all
the pepper that was shown, and then
not being as kittenish as they usually
are when on the local lot. Too much
holiday making namely, hurry-up
jumps and double heading appeared to
have had its effect on both outfits
Apart from some very persistent
clouting by Freddie Farent, who got
three safeties and narrowly escaped
another, it was an absolutely feature-
less afternoon. Neither side had had
any opportunity for anything spectacu
I lar, and going through the game look-
ed like doing a day's work,

KELLY TO MEET PAPKE AGAIN
Sylvie Ferret! Accepts Jeffries'
for a Bout Oct. 14.
Offer
Hugo Kelly and Billy Papke will
meet again as the result of a bid made
by Jim Jeffries yesterday to Sylvie
Ferreti. Immediately following the
Papke-Ketchel bout at Los Angeles
Jeffries wired nere, orrering 45 per
cent of the gross receipts for a twen
ty-flve-round contest at 158 pounds, the
men to weigh in at 6 o'clock Oct. 14
This evidently means that the fight
will be held at night time. The ln
tense heat ln the arena Labor Day,
when the sun beat down on the rootles
inclosure, may have caused the change
ln time. Ferreti has accepted the offer.
TWO MORE FOR LOWELL.
Lowell, Ind.. Sept. 9. (Special) The
Saturday and Sunday baseball games at
Oakland park, between Thompson'
Colts, a traveling colored team, and th
Oaklands of Lowell resulted in two
large Bized victories for the Oaklands.
During the two games the Colts got
four while the Oaklands covered the
home plate with fifteen scores. The
locals found easy picking and did not
have to use any Jay Eye See bits to
break the colts ln at all. They could
not run away with anything, not even
off the home plate, because Walters,
Lowell's third baseman who up to Sat

the box and the one, two, three order he
sent the colored gentry hack to the
bench was a surprise to all. His curves

San Francisco, Sept. 8. Joe Gans

championship of the world.
In spite of the fact that pretty close
to $15,000 was expended by spectators
who witnessed the Attell-Moran go of
yesterday, it Is likely that a tremenous
house will see the coming battle. In
terest runs far higher than in the
featherweight contest of yesterday.
There is just one point where a mat
ter of doubt exists this is the condi
tion of Gans and the peculiar state of
betting affairs. The men who used to
get down heavily in the days of the
old "fight trust" regime are backing
Gans whenever they can get their
money covered. But to the time of
writing comparatively small sums have
been wagered.
and drops Ed Yates, the veteran, behind
the home plate says were Just the kind
that fools them all. And with the fine
support given the battery made victory
easy. Had the visitors given their
battery the same support the game
might have been a little different.
The Sunday game was also a one
sided affair with Walters back to his
third base position and Jarvls of Mo-
mence, in the box. Jarvls done effective
work at the home plate and had fine
support behind him. A large number
witnessed both games. Following is
the score by innings:
Saturday:
Colts 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 2 3

LOWELL GETS READY
Lake County Team to Meet
LaPorte in Second Game
of the Series.
Lowell, Ind., Sept. 9. (Special)-
What will undoubtedly prove to be the
most interesting ball game ever pulled
off in northern Indiana is scheduled
for next Sunday at Oakland park, Low
ell, when the fast Laporte team Jour
neys there to meet the T907 champions
In the second game of the northern
Indiana championship series. Baseball
matters have simmered down to that
point where the championship lies be
tween these two teams and the Lowell
contingent are determined that their
next year's stationery shall read
"Champions of Northern Indiana, 1907
8." While manager Wood of the Lowell
team is very guarded in taking of his
line up for this game enough has been
learned that it is safe to say Lowell
will go into battle with the best bunch
of ball players seen together ln this
part of the country for several years.
Irwin, the "Invincible," who struck out
12 of the Laporte players in the first
game will do slab honors as usual. The
infield as well as outfield will see sev
eral new faces and to a man up a tree it
looks like Lowell will keep up the rec
ord they feel so justly proud of and
which few teams can boast, viz.: Hav
ing won every game played on home
grounds this year. There is a great
deal of interest taken in this game from
all neighboring towns and if the weath
er man is on his good behavior It wll!
prove a record breaking ball crowd for
Lake county. Valparaiso, Leroy, He
bron, Crown Point. Hammond, Indiana
Harbor, Whiting, Rensselaer, Momence.
Grant park and Brook will each send
over a good sized delegation to root
for Lowell and Laporte Is trying to
make arrangements for two special
cars to be over the Lake Shore and
Monon railroads direct to Lowell. The
management -has hit upon a novel plan
of advertising, in sending out an end
less chain of post card Invitations to
the Lowell boys in Chicago and else
where and It Is safe to say that If
there is any person you want to Bee
come to the ball game that person
will be there.
