A Washington writer sounds a timely note of warning concerning the treatment of the Tigers in the series Jennings' men will play in Philadel phia this week. This' writer expresses the hope that the fans of the Quaker City will prove themselves good sportsmen by refraining from making an obnoxious demonstration against lvtrr.lt when the Tigers open their farewell engagement on the ground of the comng champions. "If Cobb and Jennings were guilty of nccuslng the Athletics of being quitters the results of the present race make emphatic repudiation of such charges, something that a dem onstration against the two Tigers mentioned would not do. "If winning a pennant proves game, aess then the Athletics ore certainly nil of that. Put the fact of the mat. ter Is that there are few Instances of j quitters among ball players In the major leagues. When a player has It In him to dog It he never rises very high In the profession. "The Athletics have won their laur els fairly, for It can be assumed that the present flag Is theirs. Detroit, too has accomplished some achieve ments In the way of winning pen nants, and yet when It comes down to n question of gameness It seems absurd to have one team charging the other with lacking It." MOHAWK TRIMS GAY. The flay baseball team received a had drubbing Sunday at the hands of the Mohawk nine, going down In de feat on their own grounds by the score of 14 to 4. The score by Innings was as follow: R. ILK. Mohawk .... ..1 0 4 6 1 000 2 14 11 3 Gay .... 4 0000000 0--4, 8 5 Patterles-Hogan . and Sullivan; Dimmer, Houdoln and TUnldo. Dimmer was taken out of the box In the fourth, Inning and Houdoln put In his place. Hogan pitched a very good game after the first Inning. A. A. U. BRANCH IN HAWAII Chicago, Aug. 30. Everett C. Urown, president of the National A. A. II., yesterday received a communi cation from . Lorrln Andrews, an at torney In Honolulu, Hawaii, stating that he Is promoting the organization of 10 athletic clubs which will apply for admission In the national body of the A. A.

(I WILLIE" Catches Ball From Monument A : I 'h?. 1,1 v Washington, Aug. SO.THUy iSulllvan. star catcher of the Chicago American League club, caught three baseballs WOULD PROVIDE BOARD Of CONTROL FOR. All BOXING Advocates of tho proposed Interna tional board of control to regulate boxing throughout the world lost n fine chance to get the sentiment of many of the prominent men Identified with the sport with the view of form ing an organization when they fail ed to bo present nt the Johnson Jeffries fight on' July 4. No battle In the history of the ring ever drew such an attendance as was seen in the ar ena at Reno, ami It was of such a character as would have to advance the Interests of the new scheme, says an old time critic. William Will of London, the originator of the proposed change of boxing affairs, and a num ber of English sportsmen intended to come over to see the fight, and Inci dentally to obtain the views of men prominent in the game, and to assist in organizing a board of control. When the battle ground, however, was trans ferred from San Francisco to Reno and the subsequent doubts arose as to whether the big fellows would ever meet, the Londoners cancelled all their engagements In this country. If box ing were placed under the manage ment of a hoard of control, it I be lieved that it would do away with much of the bickering between the promoter and tho boxer, and In decid ing arbitrarily the weights at which boxers must defend their titles, and not to allow a man to set a weight limit to suit himself. It is suggested that the board shall consist of two representatives each from England. America and France, and one' from Australia. Since tho Inception of the scheme, which has the warmest sup port of such English sportsmen ns the Earl of Lonsdale, (Sir Claude Cham pion de Crespigny, Admiral Victor Montague, J. H.

TIGER RECRUIT MODEST Johnny Wuffli, Does Not Expect to Replace Regulars at Once. Johnny Wuffli, the third baseman bought by Detroit and who will Join the Tigers nt the close of the South Michigan league season. Is about as modest a youngster as ever broke Into the big show. He Is only 19 years Uld.nnd In size and action he Is .very like Ownle Hush. He plays down close to the ground and goes fast In either direc tion and has a wonderful whip for a little fellow. Discussing his baseball future he says: "I don't expect to bent George Mor- larlty out of his Job, because I don't know enough baseball to do It. Hut I'm n,wful glad, that I've been bought by the Tigers. I hope to get a chance to work In tho American league once or twice In this season and then get tho experience to be picked up on the training trip. Then my only hope Is that Detroit will send me to a class A league, where I can learn a lot. I'm Sure I II make good when I've got ten more experience." Quite modest, 'what? And consider ably different from the usual young ster breaking In, who Is likely to hand out a line of talk about chasing all the big ones to the woods In a few days. .

During the last second it tra velled about 175 feet and struck Sulll vans hands with a for.-e of -2e pounds, i.lIrixlmatrly. When these figures were told to Sul livan, ho remarked: "That's what I cay; the ball got to me in lesf than no "ine. For if U took it longer to travel the first half of the distance than the last half I must have cought It 'before it left the thrower's hand." SPORTING EDITOR'S NOTES. "liube" Adams, hero of the last world's series and a punk pitcher since, has come back. Jackson business men have pur chased that club in the South Michi gan league. Conflict among old di rectors ruined the chances of the team. The Canadian athletic champion ships are scheduled for Toronto, Sept. 24. Which means that our old pal, Timothy Tomothy Flanagan will run th eshow ami Itrother Jawn will do things with the weights. , LOOKS GOOD ON PAPER Players Are Named for the Postsea son Series The barkers of the proposed barn storming trip of teams from the Am erican ami National leagues after the end of the regular championship sea son are said to be Jeffries Livingston and 13.

EARLY PRACTICE AT HARVARD Coaches Will Give Football Men Ad vantage of Much Work Roston, Aug. 30. Percy D. Haugh ton, coach of the Harvard eleven this fall, will break away from Harvard football traditions nnd will have sev eral weeks' preliminary practice for his candidates. On Sept. 1 Haughton will take thirty players and coaches to Ocean vllle. Me. Here the football men will be the guests of Dr. S. H. Rlodgett of Lincoln, Mass., himself a Harvard alumnus of the early '80s and the father of Warren and Edwin Rlodgett, two memlers of the Har vard football squad. Haughton believes that the numer ous changes In the rules make It nec essary for the players to receive much Instruction, and that they, ns well as the coaches, can benefit greatly by two or three weeks' experimenting. The players will be at Frazler's Is land camps, which ore situated twenty-five miles beyond Rockland, Me. 66 WILLIE 99 THREE GREAT RIVALS TOR FEATHER WEIGHT HONORS Those three great rivals for feather weight honors Abe Atlell, Own Moran and Jem Drlscoll, the last two of England are having a hard time petting together in a cTiamplorishlp match, says Tom Andrews In tho Evening Wisconsin. At present Drls roll h In England, having returned home, owing to Illness alter his hout with Pal Moore in Philadelphia last spring. It developed that Jem had mal aria and ho was obliged to lay off for several months. Owen Moran is In California with his manager, Charlie Harvey, uud lU'ht Frankio Ruins Boon In nn effort to try and lift the lid on the coast for short-round con tests. Abe Attell Is in Riitish Colum bia, where he fights Eddie Merino at Calgary soon, and has two more mat ches In that territory soon after, so Abo will not come east for some time. When he docs there are matches uwaiting him with Jimmy Walsh, Frankle Conley, Ad Wolgast and oth ers. Tho West Side ciub of New Or leans Is endeavoring to match Abe with Conley or Walsh. Charlie Har vey, manager of Moran, writing from Frisco about the sltuatioin, says: "Owen intends to meet thin Rums, whom he should beat, anil will leav. right afterwards for the cast, where we will see the Lang-Kaufman bout at Philadelphia. The game is not very good and it seems hard to get it go ing right. Jimmy Coffroth Is work ing along tho right lines, if they leave him alone, and I think he will suc ceed, but It will take a little time. Moran Is in good shape and many try to get a bout at Milwaukee on his way home, or at New Orleans, as tho club there wants him. I would like to match him again '.with Abe Attell for you know 1 have always felt confident that Owen -could beat Abe In anything at twenty rounds or over, but you must hand h to that clever little Jew for anything under twenty. I understand that' Drl.scoll is nil right again and will come over. It should be h great race between t la three for top honors und no mistake. ' " 1: PITCHER SUSPENDED BY MANAGER DOOIN.

The idlcfc of Penn's village have barred Lang ford from the ring In Philadelphia for ever. Sporting- editors in the east are jumping on the redoubtable Aim- these days good and hard. He Is claimed to be one of the ibcst and luckiest side stepping fakers that make a living at the game today. His reputation is attributed to the skillful penmanship of Joe WfVtdman, Sam's manager. Lis ten to this tirade by W. P. Mo Ltugh- lin: "Tho.-e faking boxers and their man agers are the wisest bunch of guys In ill the world when they talk of them selves through mirrors. Rut from my observation of most of them they are a cheap crowd of boneheads who can't see further than the particular pumo on which they have focused their eyes at the moment.

New York, Aug. 30.--Lacrosse, one of tin- finest games, ttrictly Amcrkun In orli-.in and spirit, and calculated tu bring out the best there Is In man or boy, Is making only fair progress in tills country. There are few naiiit:i more worth watching or plavirig, and yet that It malntali-1 an cxl-ttn-e In the Culled States is due to th efforts of fewer club; than can he counted on the lingers of both hand-', nnd a few of the smaller universities and eollcRes. Re It said to the credit of John Hop kins, Slevm-i Instiiute, Hobart college;, Iiilj;h and Swurthtnore that their athtetle uu'liorlties consider it a. ma jor, not a minor sport, and fohter It In I'Vcl y po-ible W .'!'. At the larger universities the game's foothold 1.4 precarious. It is almost al ways in fliKim lal difficulties, and It Is ciillicultv to j.;et men to come out for the team. The crowds that attend the t,amcs ure omill, althejugh the element of modified per-one ) phi -al combat si:joel always to attract the under Ktaduatc Is marked. It Is In no M-nse a gentU- game, but it boasts of no muss play.-, anil Intent I.. n.tl foul play Is easy to de tec t. .It Is what the English would call a "going" game, In that there is action all the time, of combination play there I" no end, und fur Intricacy of tactics and fui'hlimated team work always ut hlgle speed It has no bU perlor. Another advantage Is the absence of the weight qualification, flie imple ments of the game are comparltlvely inexpensive, nnd a uniformed team can be put In the field that vvemld hardly deplete the finances of a school ath lclic asuK-tallon. R would cost far less than a hnsclull or football team, ami although a high degree of nklll may be attalneel, there is a chance for the average boy to make the team a better chance than In baseball or football.
