pay a 'fare to any d company that
would try to rob the city of East Chi

the conductors nose. He was taken
from the car by Constable D. J. Funk

ANOTHER STINGER BILL.
N. Lajoie's Clevelands handed the sox
another wallop behind the ear yester
day and took second place away from
them. 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.

be a close one and each team Is anxious
to capture the prize. 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. :

calculated to make your. eyes nearly
pop out of your noodle. .The great
struggles in the National and American
leagues need no comment. 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.
