JTT fMainmjn nKf9 sy -.& , i z : -II ACTUS LEAGUE L ENGLISH sparrows never did have as much trouble trying to alight on the wireless telegraph "wires" as the clubs of the Cactus league are having to set together on a. schedule , ,. ii schedule, which was arranged at the opening of the season, expired July 4 and a now one was to have been arranged- A tentative schedule was an nounced. Manager "Vic" Walling of Cananea did not like the lineup of his schedule and insisted upon El Paso being left out of the running, accord ing to the reports that are being print ed in the Arizona papers. As El Paso Is the only fat town in the belt regard ing gate receipts, Douglas Just could not see it that way. Instead, the Can anea game was cancelled and El Paso dates taken on instead. This leaves BIsbee and Cananea to play among themselves. Invitations have ben sent to Clifton and Morencl, also Bisbee, to rAw romp here with El Paso at the usual expenses and 20 per cent rakeoff terms. Walling says he does not ,iikb the new schedule because it does not in clude return games with Clifton and MorencL Just what the result of the strangle will be is hard to forecast. If walllng-stands pat on his intention of cutting EI Paso off his baseball map, Douglas and El Pasc will oontinue to schedule dates In each of these cities with an occasional game with the other teams 'of the league at their home grounds and return games here. As El Paso is the best money making town on the circuit, there will be no trouble about filling the schedule here and It Is thought that Walling will not insist upon his demands that the other teams cut El Paso. The Mavericks left Thursday evening for Douglas to play off the return se ries with the Demons. E. R. Thornton accompanied the club to look .after the financial end of the trip and also to whoop things up for the boys from home during the games. Gray was taken on the trip, but it is hardly prob able that he will be able to play, as his eye is still smoked and the sunfield is no" place for a player with a bum eye. Harley Kelfer, the utility man of the Mavericks, was also taken on the trip and will play the sun garden if Gray is not equal to the task. The re mainder of the lineup will remain the same as it was in the last series. Booles will be sent in against Kane, and Rumsey will take a try at Hum phries, with, either Booles or Rumsey playing the engagement In the Sunday game. e Douglas is getting a -fine collection of castoffs on Its team, yet its members continue to play ball like a bunch of leaguers. Ward was acquired from Bisbee; Pitts was also a Moroon acqui sition. Now comes Kelley, who was re leased by Bisbee, and he Is played In right field, 'Carlson being shifted to second to fill Denny Ford's shoes. An derson, the Swede lad who attempted to umpire one series here and who was originally signed to pitch for Cananea, lias been taken aboard the good ship Demon and will be worked In one of the El Paso games. With as heady a Held captain as Le Brand, the released players are being developed into a win- ning team and Douglas Is due to give El Paso the race of her life for tne $1000 plunks at The fair tournament. Before the old' man makes other ar rangements, "Pop" Derricks should be signed to umpire the fair tournament games.

If this is true, and it is hoped all over the league that it is not, there will be a hole In the lineup where the Hon. Denny used to was. Ford is a character. His Irish name and more Irish face has made a friend of every fan' who ever claimed any Irish blood. The customary "Oh you Dinny Ford" was the lad's greeting ev ery time he went to bat and he always grinned good naturedly when this bit of repartee was hurled at him". Denny Is in a slump and it Is reported that the powers that be over Douglas way are planning to give Denny his re lease and play Carlson at-second regu larly. r i . . r THIS MAN REPORTED FIGHT FOR HERALD W. W. Naughton, dean of ' American sporting writers, re- ported the Jeffries-Johnson fight for The Herald. At the time, The' Herald stated that he was the best reporter of ring battles in the -world. Here is what is said of him by Otto Flo- to, sporting editor of the Xen-x ver and St. Louis Posts and own- er of the Sells-Floto circus: " 'Heavyweight Champions' is the title of a new book of which W. W. Naughton, the dean of American sporting writers, is ' the author. It contains a grapli- Ic description of every heavy- weight championship contest 1 fought under Queensberry rules from the time of Corbett and Sullivan to the present date. Mr. Naughton is the one sport- lng writer who has attended each and every one of the bat- ties he writes ahout,Tand as a consequence his descriptions of the affairs are not secondhand. "Heavyweight Champions" contains, in addition to a de- tailed account of- each of the - big fights,' a complete record of every contestant, as well as a story of the making of the match between Jeffries and JohriSon. The book is not only interesting reading, but it is a valuable work of reference, and, ' as It is of necessity authentic, it can be relied upon to settle all disputes which may arise in con- nection with the history of the Queensberry style of milling since this system of boxing be- came the medium of deciding championships. v AI, KAUFFMAN FILES SUIT. At San Francisco, suit has been ViT-nnrht bv Al Kauffman, the pugilist, j against Eddy Graney to recover $1000 posted as a forfeit in the match with Sam Langford, which was moeuniwii postponed on account of governor Gil? lett's adverse action. The money was placed in Graney's hands as stakehold er and Kauffman alleges that he has been unable to recover it. 1 Is what you get at this ilicUliAli UJLi OjJCVJ-aa om-j-v Hotr nr of mv nth pr T.l m P- y .

Smith, all of the Brooklyn team, were benched for dis puting'hls decision by umpire Klem in yesterday's Brooklyn at St. Louis game. A spectator criticized manager Mowrey and his team after the game, whereupon the manager and player Bresnahan chased the fan with bats. The police stopped it. Five hits for as many runs were bunched by Detroit" in the second with Washington yesterday, and it ended 7-1. Cobb made a complete circuit with two on bags. There were straight heats and fast finishes at Terre Haute yesterday. Geers drove Direct Hal, jr., to win the 2:13 pace, but was forced by Peter Pan. At tendance of trot-pace men is large. Mathewson went into the air in the ninth at Pittsburg, the home team scor ing 4 runs. Ames was substantiated, but he balled it up as well. Anyhow, New York lost. Cincinnati was held to 4 hits yester day by Frock, and Boston, visiting, took a 7 run phut out. Beebe was hit hard In the second and retired for Burns. To corporal Perry B. Scofield, Com pany C, Fifth Massachusetts, should go great honors. At the New England rifle shoot Wednesday he nearly doubled the world's record for 500 yards, making 116 consecutive bullseyes, as against a rec ord of 60, held by Capt. Stephen E. Wise, Sixth Massachusetts. Young.'s third attempt to register his 500th victory in the major leagues, oc curred at New York yesterday, with Ford taking the pitching candy. Cleve land made one run to New York's 4. Spohn took yesterday's feature at Buena Vista against a likely field. A victory for Gossiper cashed 40 to 1 and meant a large killing. The first double header of the season occurred at Chicago yesterday, and the home team broke even with Philly. Chance, again demonstrated his bugs by nearly fighting with a fan. King Pin won at Empire City yeer day in one of the prettiest finishes of the season. One, two three nags were bunched. !

The chief continues to wnllop the ball, and thus far this season his stick work has netted him an average of .302.

TEXAS LEAGUE NOTES By Horace Jay Kanzler, the former Fort Worth r.,wr. -rr-V,rn cm.T-irAn Oo art limnirft player, whose services as an umpire have been dispensed with by President Allen, has hiked back to Sandusky, O. He says he has enough of Texas. t Dallas is carrying six pitchers Schontz, Torrey, Johnson, Yates, Dale and Evans. All are going at "a merry clip and Dallas is keeping up its win ning lick. McClintock, the pitcher who recently joined Oklaho-ina City. Ts interested in oil wells at Tulsa, Okla. It is said that he is the wealthiest player in the Texas league. ' Kane, Houston's utility player, is now working in right field. Salm is on first base. He is finally playing good ball and it does not look as if Houston made a bad trade after all when New nam was let go. Rankin Johnson, pitcher secured by Dallas from the Southern' league, has hit his stride. He is winning regularly now. The Texas league has the best staff of pitchers that ever twirled in this company. . Braun, catcher for Galveston, is put ting up a steady game. He seems good for faster company next year. There is a considerable shakeup in the Oklahoma City lineup. Casey has gone to second to reolace Perrine, recalled by Omaha. Bill Begley. formerly of St. Louis, but recently with El Reno, is on first. Summer, formerly of St. Louis, but lately with the St. Joseph team, has also joined Oklahoma City ,and will be used as a utility player. Big Jak Eubanks, now pitching for Houston, was a former star twirler for the Detroit Tigers. He Is showing up fast in this league. Larry Lajoie is now batting over the .400 mark in the American league. Ty Cobb, who Is his nearest rival, is hit ting only .76. So far this season Lajoie has broken all former records for bat ting in the American league and prom Ipes by the end of the season to beat all records. It looks as if he would ride the "buzz" wagon offered ,for the best, slugger. Manager Doc Andrews of the Okla homa Indians has resurrected Red" Morton for. slab work" with that team. "Red" started his professional career years ngo with the famous Nevada a Ball Player H. Shelton. . champions of the old Missouri-Western ! OOCnniO tlrtTl "TOfl" Tn 5 WOrld'S WOn association. "Red" was a world s won der in those days and still pitches good enough io iin games. Hunter Hill is again out of the line up of tl?e Houston Buffaloes. He "massed" - the umpire again and- got $5 and three days. Yantz, catcher for San Antonio went the same route and will have a vacation for the same period. r Dallas is now on the road. The at home series broke all records in the Texas league, the team winning 19 out of the 21 rrames at home. If they make anything Tike as good a record on the road they will return to Dallas with a good cinch on first place. On. this date last season San Antonio was at the top of the heap with a per centage of .577, Houston was second with .571, and Dallas was third with .565. The other teams were out of the pennant race- Karger, the Texas pitcher, is batting in the .300 class ana has -won nearly as many games as any pitcher in the American league. Newnam has an aver age of ,282, which is a fine showing for the first year in the big leagues. Hohnhurst, first baseman for San An tonio, may be out of the game for a week yet on account of hi? Illness. He leaves a mighty weak spot in the Bron chos lineup. Weyhing is jiow in bad with the Waco fans. The president ought to keep a pink slip handy. San Antonio recently purchased a player named Lemon from Indianapolis and he turned out to be what his name implies, for he refused to report, say ing that he did not like the Texas cli mate. He was a catcher and lnflelder. San Antonio needs such a player and Indianapolis may yet induce Lemon to try a trip to Texas. McClintock, the twirler for Dallas, like Jeffries, seems to have failed to come back. He essayed to pitch recent ly and did not last one inning. KIpp has been retired as shortstop for Galveston and Faire has taken up the work. Kipp is doing no better for Galveston than he did for San Antonio. Just at present the fight for first place In the Texas league Is between Dallas and Houston. San Antonio and ws X 1 "ft Dis. League d Thursday NATIONAL iJEAGTIE. At Chicago First game R. H. E.

"Texas" Bill Bailey, with the St. Louis Browns, has been in 17 games, at bat 36 times and has made but seven hits and two runs. This giv; him an average of only .94. But this is a better record than "Dode" Criss, for a time fa mous as a pinch hitter, has.
