Rumsey Pitches a Double Header for El Paso and Proves a Hero. Douglas, 'Ariz., July IS. John Rum eey was the hero of the double header played here Sunday with El Paso. The rain spoiled the chances of playing: the Saturday game and it was scheduled for Sunday morning: at 10 o'clock. Rum eey started off against Kane and pitch ed a good game with poor support- He allowed but four hits, one less than the heady Harry Kane, but his support was ragged at times and Douglas managed to score a run for each hit. Win Afternoon Game. In the afternoon Rumsey went back In against Pitts and pitched a superb game. He was always there in a pinch and although he allowed the locals 10 hits to Pitts's 9, he pinched them off when runs were needed and never al lowed a Douglas player to get nearer the plate than third base. He also -went in and won his own game in the sixth when he scored Gowan from second and Reinhardt from first -with a two base hit to left field. Bill Harper connect ed for a three base hit in the afternoon game, but was unable to score, as Rum sey tightened down and retired the side. The morning game was Kane's, al though El Paso's three errors helped matters for Douglas. The umpiring of Mackey, the same old Mackey, was ob jected to by the El Paso players m the morning game and they claimed that the Irish umpire gave them the worst of It. But It was the very ragged er rors which cost El Paso this game, rather than the umpiring. The Box scores of the two Sunday games are: Morning- Game. El Paso AB. R. H. PO. A. E.

In the lat mail mafch w.th the Gero nimo team of Silver City, the El Paso team lost b a margin of 50 points. "CY" YOUNG HAS 499 VICTORIES IN STOCK Boston Proves Hoodoo to the Veteran in the Last Game. (By H. H. Shelton.) Denton T. Young, better known as "Cy" Toung, the grand old man of base ball, has pitched 499 victories since he joined the big leagues in 1S90. a record unequalled in the sport. It will be only a few days now until he rounds out his 500. He was knocked out by Boston when he went after his 500th victory, but you can't keep him down. He is sure to attach it and that without much delay. With the exception of two seasons, 1905 and 1906, Toung has always won more than he lost. This season he is not having good luck, but it Is early yet and he still may get his stride and equal his old record- He - has seen longer continual service as a big league pitcher than any other man who ever lived. He has been playing 'ball for over 25 years. -6- f TEXAS LEAGUE GOSSIP. (By Horace H. Shelton.) $ The Detroit Tiger. are. xery anxious to secure pitcher Howell, of the Shreve port Pirates. It is said that Manager Dale Gear has been offered $4000 for the twirler. It is probable that the of fer is too tempting and that Texas will lose the 'services of the pitcher. e Joe McDonald, of the Shreveport team, Is said to be the classiest young-' ster in the Texas league. . Salazar ,the young Mexican who start ed the season with the JTort Worth Pan thers as a third basemen, has been re leased by the Longview Cannibals and is with the Marshall team. "Red" Downey, league leader in bat ting when the last figures were Issued, has had an awful slump. He Is now, however, working hard to regain his laurels and is doing better with tho willow. McLean, the new catcher for Waco, is now being given a trial and is work ing like a veteran. a Kipp, shortstop for Galveston, has re covered from his injuries and is back in the game. Tommy J. Cannon, acting for a Kan sas City firm, has purchased the fran chise of the Oklahoma City baseball team in the Texas league. It is an nounced that the team will be imme diately strengthened. a t While the record of Dallas in winning; 19 out of 21 games on the home grounds Is marvelous. It should also be men tioned that Fort Worth won 16 at home out of the same scries. Burk, the fast twirler for Fort Worth, has pitched 23 games, won 16 and lost seven. The scouts of the big leagues are paying a silent tribute to the Texas deague pitchers and in the meantime havoc is being played with the batting averages of the individual players. Hendrickson, of Galveston, has been purchased by the Cincinnati Reds, and Shontz by th.e New York Giants Fletcher, a former Dallas player. Is handling third base for New York, -while Sj H Tjo -JSt m "iS 5j&v "VS in 4j Mordecai Brown, one of the star twirlers of the Chicago Cub, the miner who lias but three fingers on Iiis pitching hand has -won ten games and lost six thu. far this sca.son. In the 1( jennies he has .truclc out 51 men. He Is well up on the average list vrlth n record of .G25. Who Is Greatest Player, Larry Or LaJoie Or Wagner? Of late there has been much argu ment as to who is the greatest base- I ball player, Larry Lajoie, of the Cleve- land Naps, or Hans Wagner, of the t Pittsburg Nationals. The question is a hard one to answer. Both have been playing ball for many years and few men have ever equalled their records. Lajoie has been In the big leagues Arthur Devin is out of the game, and is doing good work. s Eugene Woodburn, signed by Dallas, will prpbabbj.be sent to Waco,. He has been playing yritlx Ennis, Tex.", and has made a splendid record. ! J ' '" i "- r Shontz, twirler for Dallas, continues to do fine work. In the-Jast game he pitched, he held Oklahoma City to three hits. He is now easily leading the league in pitching with the exception of Rogers, of San Antonio, who has pitched only four games. He has won them all. Casey, first baseman of the Oklahoma Indians, has established a new batting J record for the Texas league. In Wednesday's, game he came to the bat four times, made four two-baggers and scored three runs. v Oklahoma City announces the "pur chase of Cy Young, a pitcher, from the Topeka club of the Western league, and Thielman, also a pitcher, from the American association. "Possum Bill" Taff, an Austin boy with the Brownsville team of the Southwest Texas league, has' pitched two no hit games this season. He is only 17 years old. With praer train ing it looks as if he might grow into a wonderful phenomenon. ' a " Waco has broken the reccvd for the season. The team won two games dur ing the past v.-eek. It is vfery doubtful if any player in the Texas league will be batting over 300 if the pitchers keep up te fast gait they are now jjoing. The.y JUjV By Horace H. Shelton one more year than Wagner.

Last season Pen nell played with Wichita in the West ern league, hitting .292 and fielding .97S He was in 122 games. Out of his hits 34 were two-baggers, nine three baggers and 12 home runs. He al3o stole 26 bases. The Macon club, of the South Atlan tic league, lias recalled pitcher Fol bre from Dred Cavender's Columbia or ganization. Before Folbre made the i change Macon made Dupree an offer but the former Fort Worth, player de- I clined to go. Dupree has been with Enid, Okla., for some time.

The Shreveport Pirates have not won a game since July 4. The team is backing down the ladder at a fast clip. m Chelette is a stumbling block in the way of the Dallas Giants.

Disastrous errors in the rirst inning, coupled with two timely hits, gav Mo renci three scores and cost Clifton Sat urday's game, the final count being 5 to 4. Scanlon was on the mound for the locals and after the first settled down and. pitched a good game, tlthough the visitors bunched hits for two more scores in the sixth. Cummings served the benders for the visitors and after starting strong, weakened towards the end. In the sev enth he hit two and walked two, forcing in the local's first run. Kelley's Catch Saved Game. Kelley then pulled the game out of the fire with a sensational catch in center of Blythe's long drive, that would have broken up the game, as the cor ners were full. Clifton uncorked a rally in the ninth. After Riley singled and NewelL walkedJBousquet and Scan Ion turned loose drives that netted three runs. With a man on third, one down and one to tie. Morenci pulled together and held Clifi.n from' further scoring. Breen. a new man from Jersey City, played right for the locals and got away with two pretty catches. The score: Morenci AB. R. H.
