MANHATTANITES HAVE WON TWENTY OUT OF LAST TWEN1Y-F0UR GAMES Old Father Knickerbocker Is chuck ling with glee today at results of the Giant-Pirate ami the Cub-Phllly games yesterday. The Giants have won their seventh straight and the Cubs were held to one hit and a de feat by Bill Burns, of the Quakers. Father Knlek Is now fixing his dates so that he will be able to root for his Giants In all of the "world champion ship series." The Giants have not reached the stage Just yet where they cannot be beaten, but If they travel at a .500 clip from now on to October 12, which means that they must only win half of tlielr twenty-four remaining contests, the Cubs will be out of it, unless they can take a phenomenal brace and win 80 per cent, of their remaining combats, which Is an aver age of four out of every five games. Just say ' Pittsburg1' In Cubland and it is like daunting a ruddy-liued gar ment in the face of a bull, for the Chicago rooters claim that It was the Pirates who put the Kittle Beara out of It and then fell disgracefully before the attack of the Giants. The dope shows that the Giants have won twenty of their last twenty-four combats. That is an average of five out of every six games played, and, therefore, the Giants have been travel ing at a clip that would give them an average close to the -8S0 mark. The Cubs, on the other hand, have been weakening gradually, but surely, and have won only eleven of their last twenty games, showing their speed to have diminished to a point slightly above the .GOO mark. That Is why the Gotham fans are so enthusiastic today, and for the same reason the Cubs fans are gloomy. The Giants, It can readily be seen, have the pennant already In their grasp, even though it is not legally and tech nically their own Just yet. The Giants now, even though they | National League | Race ih Nutshell t * I t + $ To Play.Won. Lost. P.C.

In the past It has gen erally been the case that either the National or the American League champions had to make a gruelling fight right up to the finish, and elthrr one of them was not In the best shape because of the strain. The Athletics already have the pennant won, but their sailing will be little caster than the Giants, even though they do finish their season ahead of the New Yorkers. It la now the aim of both managers to save their men from Injuries In order to have their full strength for the Important test, which promises to be bitter. Connie Mack Is out for re venge for the one-sided series of 1905, and It Is certain to he a battle for blood. Eastern League Jots Jake Gettman was a them tn the path of his old teammates yesterday.

Attell will concede the Eng lish champion fifteen pounds, end those who saw Wells hammer "Knock out" Brown here thTee weeks ago, ERNIE PYE GOING FAST BEHIND THE MOTORS THESE DAYS _ MacFarland Hasn’t Paid His Fine and Won’t Race Tonight. The wise ones who haunt the train ing quarters at the Velodrome are of the opinion that Elmer Collins will meet a Tartar when he stacks up eaglnst Ernie Pye in the ten-mile paced race at the Mlhlon-Chapman saucer tonight. They base their opinion on the showing these riderB have made In training the pant two days. Pye has shown more speed than the American champion and over the ten-mile route he can travel all the way at top speed. Collins has seen the Australian mid dle-distance man train and he admits that Pye will take a lot of beating. However, the "champ" haB not got cold feet and will carry the bat'tle to (he star of the Antipodes from tho very start. Collins, like Pye, Is partial to tho ten-mile route and will ride better In the race than ho has in training. Floyd MacFarland will be conspicu ous tonight by his absence. The great agitator of tho bike game has not paid his fine, and as Is the custom In base ball, he will bo compelled to remain away from the firing line until lie comes through with $50 and has his suspension raised. "Mac”' will watch the “doings" from the grand stand tonight. Jackie Clarke, “Mac's" mate, will have to lean over the rail and receive his riding in structions. "The llocket” Is the ono best bet In the ten-mile open, and if he uses his head he should come through with flying colors. Champion Kramer will try to dis prove the contention that he Is not good In a long, hard race by winning the open. The stars will all start In the one mlle handicap. AMERICAN ASSOCIATION.

Many of Wells'* friends nay he made a mistake In signing to fight the featherweight champion because ha will lose much prestige If he is de feated, while Attell's position will not be seriously Injured if he loses to a man out of his class.

CORINTHIANS HANG UP RECORD SCORE The Corinthians, the crack amateur soccer team of England, defeated the picked team of the Associated Cricket Clubs of Philadelphia at Philadelphia yesterday by an overwhelming score of nineteen goals to nothing About 1,200 spectators witnessed the slaughter of the locals in Ideal weather, and al though the game was so one-sided it provided a rare treat for those who were fortunate enough to be present.

The Grays are here again today and wind up tomorrow, the Tiger victory , yesterday clnrhing seventh plaeo for them, and the Grays cannot now possi ble climb out of the cellar even though they win all of‘their remaining games j and the Tigers lose every oootest on their schedule. Six full games separate the Tigers and the Grays, and the Bengale are almost as far behind the Skeeters, so that It Is a certainty they can finish neither higher nor lower than the sev enth rung. To see the two teams per forming yesterday, one would not real ize that but one position separated them in the pennant ladder It Is a cinch there would have been a wider margin If the Tigers had the same team all season. The Tigers are out to make It a whirlwind finish, and Lee has asked to pitch tomorrow and again on Sunday In order to boost Ills average, of which he Is Justly proud. Lee won his eighteenth game yoBtorday, and has nineteen defeats charged against him. If he can win two more he will have passed the .BOO mark, and this Is now his goal. He Is entitled to the honor of being the team’s loading pitcher, ns It now stands, though Char ley Smith, who won 9 and lost 8, Is the nominal leader. Friday Is an open date, but a game may he arranged with the Skeeters. Today Is Ihe last chance the ladies have to see a game free this season. Ideal weather and there should be a big crowd. H. Clay Smith will be one of a party of friends to go with McGlnnity to see the all-stars series against Rochester. The Tigers showed some good inside work yesterday on the aggressive. Dar ing base running was twice blocked by brilliant Providence fielding. George Smith acted as bench man | ager, and Eddie Zimmerman as field | lieutenant in yesterday's game. If made I a pretty good combination with Mc Glnnity and H. Clay Smith applauding I from the grandstand. Jakey Atz Is a hard worker and real ly deserves better lurk than to he man ager of a tallend team. Sheehan looks like a pretty nifty hitter. Witness his double and single yesterday. Lee had Perry's goat and the big fel low gave vent to his pen*-up wrath in sulphuric language on two or three oc casions. Notably when Kelly robbed him of a sure hit by a clever catch. This Elston boy is a pretty nifty hit-' ter, and his catch of Kelly’s foul in right was not so bad. Louden improves dally as a lead-off man, and Connie Mack expressed tils opinion that his rival. Jennings, picked off a gold nugget In "Buster Bill.” A check for $1.000 from the Detroit Club covering Louden s draft was received by the Newark Club office yesterday. [ASTERN LEAGUE an h Baltimore Must Win Six of Re* maining Games to Three Out of Five by Rochester to Cap* ture First Place in Barrow Circuit. While the National League race ha* been the cynosure of all eyes of late, the Eastern League campaign Is quite a race, too. A Baltimore dopester says that the Hustlers have five remaining games and the Orlolea six on their schedule. Today the Hustlers have an advantage of three full games. If Rochester wins three and loses two, and the Orioles win all bIx games, tha Hustlers will have It cinched by one full game. The games won and lest would then be: Wen. Lose. Rochester . 9S M Rfiltlmorr . W SIS If Rochester loses three and wins two. and Baltimore wins all six, which Is Improbable, the two teams would ha tied, each having won 97 and lost f>5. Therefore Rochester must win three more games and Baltimore all six to be In the running. To lose the flag the champs must drop four out of five games, which Is not Impossible, but very Improbable. ORIOLES ARE BUT TWENTY-FOUR PEGS BEHIND CHAMPIONS As a result of their victory over tha Rkeeters yesterday the Orlolea are now^ but twenty-four poinds behind tha Hustlers and first place In the Eastern League race. The Bengal* again beat the Grays, while Toronto nosed out tha Royals. Buffalo and Rochester were una ble to play owing to wet weather. NELSON COMES BACK.
