Manager HuKh Jennings of the Detroit TIkitm has faith in the ability of McGruw to win a fourth consecutive pennant. '"I stick to my old friends," uaid Hughlc, "and that Is why I am pulling ho hard for the Giants. I am not overlooking the fact that Boaton la very dangerous. So one appreciates more than I the capabilities of George ytalllngs. ThoHe who tigure thut the liravea ore going to split wide open are seriously mistaken. "Hut this is why I figure New York has a better chance than Huston. Mc tJraw's team until a few days ago was playing anywhero from twenty-live to forty points below its normal form. Doston for six weeks has been driving at one of the most sensational paces ever attained by a big league club. A great many of Its victories have been shutouts, established by three wonder- ful pi toilers. -It is-not to be presumed that this trio will be able to go on Indefinitely holding all opposition to handfuls of hits dally. "I do not believe lioston Is going to break badly, but all that is neces sary for It to do is to falter. The Uraves cannot hope to better their speed. New York cannot very well fail to show Improvement. "Wth New York It has been largely a case of poor pitching. The return to form of Ma thewson and tMarfuard seems to have given renewed hope to the flagging spirits of the champions. "I think the fight will be between New York and lloston to the tnd of the race. Both St. Louis and Chica go will have to play the majority of their remaining games away from home, whilo their eastern rivals are at home. "The big fight will come no doubt next week with the Giants in TloHton. Then a serious setback for either Is likely to prove fatal. ' A.

With a $50 fine staring them in the face, Cruslnberry, In answer to the Justice's question as to his name ami address, flashed his llano Hall Writers' card.

Georgian Psach May Soon Have Rival From Own State. St. Louis, Sept. 4. Manager Rickey, of the Drowns, has acquired TImon Dowden, the University of Georgia athlete, who has been playing with the Macon South Atlantic league club all season and putting up a star game in the sport's every department. Dow den's release Is reported to have cost $3,000, and he is labelled for delivery Sept. 1. Dowden is known all over the south as a college athlete. At Georgia he was a football star of the first mag nitude for the four years ended with 1913, when he was graduated. He aso played baseball, working at first base and behind the bat, and batting well. Dowdrn's best college work was done in football. The coaches and experts agree that he never was val ued properly by the bulk of the fans, and fay he was one of the most use ful brickfield men ever seen in the south.' It was his heady work as a sid partner of Dob Mc.Whorter that made possible much of the brilliant plav of that great halfback. Since getting into professional ball Dowden lias been playing the out field. He was not a star catcher or first baseman, even In college ball, but ho could hit well and run bases cleverlv. His hitting became sonsa tlonal in the extreme after he Joined Joined the Macon club, averaging close to the .410 mark, and his base running has been excellent. Dowden Is a native Georgia boy.

The Phillies' scouts have been busy this season casting their critical eyes over the so called stars In the minor leagues but only one player has been signed. It was announced by the Quaker manag ment that' Harry Welsor, an outfield er of the Charlotte club of the North Carolina league, had placed his signa ture to a rhlllle contract.

His batting average so far' this season is .333. t. hum not been decided definitely yet whether Welser will Join the Tnil liea this fall or next spring.

This has been a great year for the old-timers as well as for the young sters In the major leagues. Have you noticed in the scores how some of those fellows for whom we were mourning and who wo thought were all done and ready to go back to the blacksmith shop are holding their own? Just look them over, and see what the supposed "dead ones" are doing. The latest Is Dob Spade, enys a writ er In the Detroit Times. ISpade was a grand good pitcher with a bum club. He was so good that the Chicago club offered $20,000 In real money for him, and It was refused by Cincinnati. Then, his arm went wrong and he dropped out. It seemed he was done. Dut a week or so ago Joe Tinker who was in danger of losing the Fed lea gue pennant because his pitching staff was crippled, grabbed Spade. He says his arm is restored, nnd if it Is he is going to clip figures on those battln averages like Rockefeller clips cou pons. George Stallings looked oil over th world for nn outfielder and when he had tried most of them he seized upo Josh I Wore who was cast adrift by the Oiants as done for. Chanco saw his mistake and rescued Dirdie Cree from Daltimore nnd Cree came back seemingly as good as ever. Mrtlraw Is carrying around a regular baseball O. A. R. Mike Donlin, Fy Seymour, and a bunch of other vets. He clung to Dob Descher when they said h was done, and Dob doesn't seem to have much trouble holding the pace with the younger ones. Deals Decker, chased from club to club, is always there when needed Clark Griffith had to have an out fielder, and he sent scouts scurrying nl over the country, then located Mike Mitchell and he Jumped in and is go lng magnificently. Mike is an odd player In that way a change of clubs seems to make him a top-notcher a little while and he has Joined Jack Delivelt, Juck Knight and Decker fn the Wanderlust club. Stallings felt his team was wabbling at third, and ho corralled Smith, who was canned by Drooklyn and Smith Jumped right In and made good. Leon Ames, thought to be all through In New York is going great guns for the Reds and Daniels, who was counted out, has come 'back In lino style. When Cincinnati declared Dick Hobllttel all through Doston's Red Sox took him and ho came near making a championship team. Char lie Mullin pronounced unlit for the White Sox is making the finest flrsi baseman Chance has had in New York. , i i J iMJWfl Vean Oregg, given ' up in disgust by Cleveland, is pitching mngnlncent 1 for Doston. Nunamaker, thought a failure by Doston, is catching good ball for Chance. Klrke. pronounced unfit by the Dos ton RrsTes looks good In Cleveland's outfield. Cleveland, after trying out a suuad of youngsters, had to fall back on LaJole and Tuck Turner, ine oral league Is filled with players who were pronounced ready for the dls card, or who had been discarded as worthless.

The two greatest pitchers McOraw aver had were MoOinnlty and Mathew- son and they did most of his work. Matty is still his greatest pitcher, and he rarely works under forty-five games a year. The greatest season Jack Chesbro ever knew whs In 1904, when he work ed in fifty-six games or oftener than once every three days all the year. The rreatest season that Rd Walsh ever knew was In 1908, when he work ed sixty-five games almost every oth er day. There's no reason why the average able-bodied pitcher shouldn't work at least flftv games a year. Two years ago, when the Giants were slipping nd neither Matty or 'Marquard were able to help a lot, McOraw was forced to work Tesreau six times In twelve davs. He not only won all six, but his last two start were shutouts. Ton- tant work had brouRht him control and steadied him down. One reason for the scarcity of clas sy young ballplayers, men good enough to shine In the major leagues, Is th growth of thw greut cities, says the Detroit Journul. Considering the fact that baseball enthuslusm grow with the expansion of the big bugs, und that the attendance has Increased with the rise In population, this statement may look fantastic or Impossible. Nevertheless, It Is true, and unless the colleges or the farms begin to re plenish the supply, there will bv a serious shortage in high-grade ball players within tho next few years. You cannot have ballplayers unless you have ball games to develop them. You cannot have ball games unless you have a place to play them on. And with the great cities expanding und incessantly bulging out their lines of settlement, where do the ball yards go? Tuko Chicago as an example. A few years ago there wore ball llelds of ample blze within walking distance for everybody. Huge vacant lots were abundant in every direction. On Sat urdays and Sundays theso lots were black with spectators, crowded so close that every foul tip copped some one In the countenance. The City leuguo hud several fine ball parks, und did u prosperous business, even after the National league started Sunday games. Then the rush of building began to swallow up tho lots. One by ono the parks were seized; the lots passed out of existence by the dozen. A few mole years and the amateurs had to go distances to play their games. A few ears added and the amateurs could find room only by taking car rides of such length that they lost ho whole day going and returning. The big leagues, even if their parks are some distance out, draw the people who have leisure to go a few miles and spend an afternoon. The young am items cannot take the time many of ihem cannot spend the carfare. In every city the story Is the same the march of population, the spread of building operations, has killed off the amateur game by removing the avail able spots whereon the amateurs could caper. And what does this mean for the future supply of players? 2DYSZK0 JOINS ARMY. Giant Polish Wrettler Now An Aus trian Lieutenant.
