Most unkind, especially as the Detroits happened to win a game, which means the sox dropped back another notch behind the leaders. Mr. Comis key's athletes couldn't get any runs for Ed Walsh, so he was beaten by Llebhardt, 3 to 0. It 'was tough on Manager Jones to get his trump card trimmed. He nat urally figured Walsh was in a pretty soft spot and morally certain to take Liebhardt's measure, but Llebhardt sur prised everybody by pitching just three times as well as Walsh and winning in a walk. Two doubles over third and an infield scratch were all the sox could mamifacture, while th Clevland filnger was looking. The three wallops were unattached, so of course they didn't get the home hopes anything. CUBS CAN'T STAND PAY DAY. Boston, Sept. 15. Pay day and the opening of the eastern Invasion brought woe unto the cubs today. They lost the opening game with the doves, 3 to 2, Steinfeldt letting two runs leak past him at third base and the cubs, by ill-judged base running, throwing away their opportunities to win after that. The defeat dropped the champs to third pla.ee: three games behind New York. Worn out and weary from their long jump from St. Louis, minus their bats, arriving hours late and hungry, the cubs ran out to pluck a few feathers from the doves and got badly scratch ed, suffering the severest blow to their pennant hopes they yet have endured. Brown pitched and although he pitch ed superbly, Lindaman beat him. YOST SETS FOOTBALL MACHINE IN MOTION. Michigan Coach Hns Eleven Candidates Out fr First Practice of the Season. .

In fact, O'Malley's court is expected to be one of the most Important and Interesting places among the lovers of all kinds of sport during the coming winter. MAY CREATE SENSATION. Another intercollegiate Imbroglio, in volving the amateur standing of George Capron, the newly elected captain of the University of Minnesota football team, threatens to disturb the peace of the "big eight" schools on the eve of the gridiron saso'n. Whether or not the gopher leader is the same Capron who played professional baseball in the South this summer Is the question the University of Chicago rooters desire to have answered.' - .The maroons expressed surprise yes terday when they hard that Capron had been chosen to captain the Minnesota eleven, because of the reports of his diamond performance that had reached Marshall field this summer. The brill iant Capron, whose drop-kicking was the sensation of the West last year and a tower of strength to Dr. Williams' team, was believed by the Midway play ers and rooters to be out of football for good. : MOTORCYCLISTS IN LONG TOUR. ilsh Jocrcey Kofcoaia Through City ax a Retcri.

Providence, Baltimore, Buffalo and Newark are fur nishlng a brilliant display of fire works in the Eastern league. ; And while scanning the east don't overlook the New England league ' with Wor cester and Lawrence in the leading roles, and the Connecticut league with Springfield and Hartford in a clutch to the finish.. Turning to the middle west, the American association Is found with In dianapolis, Louisville, Toledo and Co lumbus , so close together that the A A. fans are scarcely able to distinguish one. from another. And in the land of Cotton. When it comes to the Southern league you're up against a guessing stunt for fair. It's a mighty wise fan who can pick the flag winner from among Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans and Montgom ery. Retrace your steps-and take a peep at the Central league and Evansville, Dayton and South Bend; the Thnee-I league, with Springfield, Decatur, Pe oria and Dubuque; the Illinois and Missouri league, with Macomb and Hannibal fighting it out for first place; the western league, with Omaha, Sioux City and Lincoln all in the run ning. What's that? You're getting dizzy? Why, you have just started. The heaTt disease finish is on from one end of the country to the other. Big and little fellows are all in It. Take the Southerij Michigan league, the Virginia league, the Wisconsin and Illinois league, the Western association, the Texas league, the Pacific Coast league, the Northwest league Gee, we're at the end of the baseball map. Well, one thing sure, 1908 will be remembered as classy baseball year with the flossy finish. NOTES OF THE MISOR LEAGUES.
