Yea, Joe was tha Mg smoke y saw as-day, and the nana! liulet gaatlaering of I ally fans nee ar overlooked an opportunity U ahms their approval. • • s What do you know about the Tigers pulling off two double steals In one game Tbey nevei did thst before. Of course tbe Colts should have broken up both of them but that doesn't covet tbs fsct that the Bengals stole McOinntty on first and West oa third negotiated the firat robbery Murray threw to catch Joe go ing to second. Coltrin returned the threw to Murray to catch West hat the throw was wide. Brottem and Butler repeated the same performance la the sixth frame, Butler scoring when Coltrin threw high to Murray. p a a The Tigers displayed a slight tendency yesterday to take aa occasional chance on the bases. At that it looked aa If they ahould hare stretched four hits for an ether base. So far the Bengali have been loafing on the paths Perhaps their success yesterday will .arm their feet a trifle. . . .

Venire 1. the tacJoma times where tlie critics declared t"hey belong, and growing etmnger Branch Rickey, college man theorist, and sportsman has the Browns above most of his high, priced fompetitors. and so cloae behind the Athletics that a week of luck might bring about the mlrai le and place the Brawns st the top. Miller Muggins, with a team which at the start of the season seemed doomed to last place, is keeping away from the bottom and 'laying the best bail af an> of ths Western teams barring tha rejuvenated Reds. While it is hardly probable that the Browns caa stay In the first division, or that tha Car dinals can hope to remain a their present station, their sue cess thus far is a distinct tri umph for the managers. Ia the spring Rickey, himself an untried manager, had about the worst looking bunch of ma terial of aay leader in either Jt the old leagues possibly except lag Chance and Hersog. His pitchers had shown strength. H* had four that in fact ware of championship caliber if with strong teams. He was wlthon 1 aa Infield, had tae remnants . ."* a broken outfield, and a exieri neotat catching stsff. Rickey took l.eary. a proaiis-. Ing recruit, snd made a Oral baseman of merit. He wortseal Wares, who waa laat fair oa tha Coast and gave little promise ot major league strength, lata a good man. Ha made a ball play er of Del Howard, manager of Baa rraaeiseo. But his moat surprising success haa been with Clarence Walker. This boy wa* with Washington when oaly aa Immature youth. He had apeeil and little else—and now he is up there with Cobb In batting, and is fielding better than ever. There you are outside of pitch ers and catchers ths Brown i have scarcely a man any other team in the league would want aa a regular—and they are near tbe top and still fighting. The answer Is that brains aud hust ling count. INS AND OUTS Boeckel waa la the grand stand yesterday. Ha Is out temporarily with a alight attack of blood poisoning. Some race we're having. Van couver jumped to the lop yester day with Spokane and Seattle only a game or so behind. I.enaett who played three games on first base for the Tiger* the last time Vancouver was hen is working for an uncle in Spo kane. Stokke has played good ball i In left field, at first base and on tbe keystone corner, in the shot* time that he has been with the Tigers. Which Is the best third base man. Ouigni or McMullln? "Over the garden wall"—a three-act tragedy staged by Ben der and Ouigni. These two play era have knocked four fouls over the left field fence this week that have just missed being fair by inches. Evidently there Is another pitcher on the Tiger staff. Man agerial worries you know. Tacoma and Portland will play a double-header at Athletic park Sunday afternoon. The first game will start at 2 p. m. SEATTLE EVEN WITH INDIANS SEATTI,E. July 1 «.—Seattle evened the series with Spokane >esterday. winning ths game 2 te 1.

The organization grew out of the Conversation league that has been defunct for several months At a meeting of the old C'onver sationallsta last night It was de cided to turn the old organiza tion into an athletic club. Clinton Munley waa elected secretary of the new club which as-ill begin ac;rvitles right away.

This disposes of the aervlces of Eddie Marino, who has been man aging Vernon. Ku I lowers of tha boxing game say that thla is one ot the best moves that Vernon has made. Hungary Hires U. S.

He beat MrGoortv twice—hut haa a better man t<> beat this time. The Hammond boy evidently fought rings around the clever Oshkosh battler who grew des perate and lost It by fowling— j probably saving himself a knock out. It la pretty tough on Mc- Uooity to get better and better j and keep 011 tackling a fellow ! who Improves even more rapidly. Again it Is possible Clabby "has something on" McGoorty. Al though the Australian critics be lieve ha Is a real champion. Ray Bronson Is Now a Manager Word comes from Auatrallu that Ray Bronson, Indianapolis welterweight champion now man aging Milburn Baylor, haa de rided to remain in the antipodes until fall.
