Pros at the Motordrome Will
Clash in Star farm
All of the tandems, triplets, quads
and sextets at the track will be
used in the two-mile multicycle race,
billed as the feature event for to
night's meet at the Motordrome. The
fastest professionals now riding at
tile new track will be selected for
the race, but the assignments to tho
respective machines will not be made
untitl just before the start of the
race. Charley Turville, the new
track manager, is responsible for this
Root, Hill and Halstead seem to
have a big lead over any other trio
at the track when mounted on a
triplet. This trio had no difficulty
In taking the Australians, Spears,
Corry and McNamara, into camp in
the match last Saturday night, but
it is possible that the combination
may be split up in tonight's affair,
Root and Hill being assigned to a
tandem, and Halstead pairing off
with Drobach on another tandem.
The improved form shown by Reg
gie McNamara has caused him to be
brought back on scratch, along with
Spears, Root and Hill. McNamara
has rounded Into form rapidly, due
principally to the fact that he is a
conscientious trainer. He generally
works out twice a day and while his
finishing sprint is still lacking, ho
gives promise of developing into the
star at the track before the season
is over.
All four of the riders just men
tioned will start from the honor
mark in the half-mile "pro" handi
cap tonight. The handicap limits
have also been extended, and It will
be necessary for the hack-mark men
to ride every foot of the way if they
expect to get in the prize money.
The forty-lup open, which is about
ten miles, carries witli it special lap
prizes. This means that tho entire
field will be kept on the move for
the full route. The distance just suits
■McNamara and Root. Corry, too. Is
a strong rider, and has proven his
worth In the long-distance races.
Spears, while unquestionably the
fastest sprinter at the track, does
not show up so well in the long, hard
races The miss-and-out for tho
"pros” should also he productive of
a lively scramble.
Six of the best amateurs at the
track will be seen in the unlimited
Australian pursuit race. The con
testants will be Wohlrab, Tommy
Smith, VY’illlo Hanley, Ernest Ohrt,
C. B. Georgi and Harry Kaiser.
Smith, Hanley and Wolilrab will
start from scratch In the fifteen-lap
handicap. In addition there will be
a one-mile open for the amateurs.
Manager Turville has set aside an
entire section of the grandstand for
women, wlio will he admitted in to
night’s meet without charge. If It
should prove a successful move,
ladles’ night will lie made a regular
feature each month during the re

Little Jackie Clark will measure
speed with Thorwald Ellegaard at the
Velodrome tomorrow night. Jackie
will meet the great Dane in a French
style match over the same distance
as the Grenda-Ellegaard match of
Sunday. In Clark Ellegaard will find
a far more dangerous opponent than
big Grenda, and he will have to be in
letter form than he displayed Sun
day to stop "The Rocket." Jackie is
in fine form right now. and it was
only an accident that kept him out
of the final of the one-mile open at

he was far from his best form when

Two championship races are billed
for tomorrow night at the Velodrome,
which makes the card very attractive.
The title races are a flvc-mlle event
for the professionals and a one-mile
title race for the amateurs. The
"pro" title race will be paced by a
tandem, and the field that will start
will be large and classy. The other
races on the bill are a two-thirds
mllo handicap and a mlss-and-out in
vitation for tho professionals and a
three-mile handicap for the amateurs.

In the amateur handicap Aubrey
Taylor, the amateur champion of
Australia, who took both of the events
for slmon-pures at the Velodrome
Sunday, will probably ride from

■■ — A ______. *
Ty Cobb is not satisfied with De
troit and Detroit will, sooner or
later, have to make arrangements for
the great player's transfer to another
team. His kick over the salary ques
tion brought out some bad feeling
and Cobb hasn't been the greatest
help In the world to the team all
season. In an Individual way, he is
holding up his end, but he Isn't work
ing In unison with the other machin
ery of the team, it is claimed. He
wants to get away and It looks as if
Detroit is not going to stop him,
How to trade Cobb and to whom
to trade Cobb is a puzzle that isn't
worked out In a hurry. Ty would
come high and Detroit would have
to be shown some excellent material
as part of the bargain. The rumor
that Tris Speaker would be traded
for Cobb even up seems to listen
well, although there are some fans
in Boston who wouldn’t like to see
Speaker go nohow—Cobb or no Cobb.
The fact that Tyrus Raymond
wants to get away from Detroit is
so evident thrit every club in the
American League is trying to figure
out how to get the "Georgia Peach."
As far as some of the clubs are con
cerned. Detroit would want the whole
team and then some cash to boot
and the price wouldn't be looked upon
as too high. The most even trade,
though, would appear to be Speaker
for Cobb. Ty would do well in the
Hub, where he is a big favorite and
neither club could be accused of get
ting much the worst of it. Detroit,
in Speaker, would be getting a first
class player, but would be losing a
greater player, perhaps, yet withal
a dissatisfied player. With everything
rosy all around, Detroit would be
better off with Speaker and Boston
would benefit greatly by the acquisi
tion of Cobb.
Boston is not the only city in which
Cobh would like -to play. He would
Join New York in a minute and he
would go with Charley Comiskey, of
Chicago, without any urging. New
York would really be the best place
for Cobb. Such a deal would help the
league all around. It would give the
Yankees a star, player and a great
player and maybe Manager Chance
would be able to build, up a ball team
around the Detroit star. As far aa
players go, New York has nothing to
offer. Detroit in return, and as an
out-and-out financial deal some
money would have to change hands.
Cobb is a great attraction and he Is
worth considerable just on his own
drawing powers to a club. Nothing
less than $20,000 would touch him,
and on top of this the club magnate
would have to give Ty something
like $15,000 per year to make him
happy and work for the best inter
ests of the team. When you think of
the $35,000 for, one lone ball player
and know that you will have to hire
twenty or more men to help him
out, you are likely to give the mat
ter considerable scrutiny. It may
pay, of oourse, in the long run, and
the acquisition of Cobb might mean
a pennant and a world's champion
ship, which would more than bring
back the money paid out. It is all
a gamble, though, and baseball Is the
biggest gamble in the world. You
can put the greatest ball players in
the universe together and they will
not win you a pennant, yet you can
Put just one man in the proper place
on a team of mediocres and they
Will scamper off with the flag Just
like breaking sticks.
Tyriis the Great" may have real
merit in his method to tear himself
away from Detroit. If a man close
to throne knows what he Is talking
about. Hugh Jennings is playing his
final engagement as a manager In the
old Michigan town. Next year, so the
story goes, the redoubtable Hugh will
be much closer to civilization and
will bo leading the Brooklyn Superbas
in an attack on the National League
pennant. Jennings belongs in the Na
tional League, where most of his
friends are. He took a berth in the
American League because it was the
best thing in sight. He made good In
every way. He liked Cobb, the two
got along well together, and Ty did
yoeman work tn order to win the pen
nants. Stories have cropped up now
and then alleging that Jennings and
Cobl) didn't hitch. Hugh told me in
the most positive manned that he
and Ty never had a cross word and
that Cobb was the easiest ball player
he had ever handled.
“Cobb doesn’t need much coaching,
you know,” Jennings Haid, "but he
does wliat l tdl him every time he
goes to the bat. Ho Is not only a
great star, but ho is a wonderful team
man. How do you expect we would
be able ot win three pennants if Cobb
wasn’t working In unison with the
other players? No, it’s all a mistake
to accuse Cobb of being an individual
player! He is a team man and he
has never Crossed me yet."
Jennings told the truth and It is a
noted fact that Hugh and Ty are fast
friends. Of course, Cobb can’t go
over to the National League with
Hugh, but it Is more than possible
that Jennings told Ty he was going
to Brooklyn and Ty felt as if Detroit,
without Jennings, was no place for
him. Besides, Cobb has longing eyes
on one of the larger cities, and he
would play great ball and be worth
the while as a member of either the
New York, Boston or Chicago team.
From present Indications, Boston will
probably get him, but It Is no cinch
that he will be allowed to leave De
troit at all.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are at the
Polo Grounds today and the most in
teresting baseball series of the year
is promised. The Pirates are com
Ing up the line like a cavalry charge,
and the Giants are not so sure that
they will be able to keep in the Ifead
and out of reach of the Smoky City
crew. Pittsburgh, with much to
commend her and showing signs of
her real claBs for the first time this
Beason in her last dozen or so games,
breaks In on New York when the
Giants seem to be at their best, and
therefore the battle should he all the
more interesting and the outcome all
the more uncertain.
New York has the shade on her
home grounds and she will have
Matty besides. Pittsburgh will be
slightly handicapped with Hans
Wagner out of the regular line-up.
But the Pirates are going so well
that Wagner, startling to say, does
not appear to be missed. The club
has been most successful without
him, yet there was a time when
Pittsburgh without Wagner would be
like a dog without a tail. Hans Is
with the team, but he Is simply
warming the bench. His le^- Is sup
posed to be out of kilter and he is
said to be otherwise ailing, but the
secret is around that Manager
Clarke is easing Hans out gradually
and that the team ih going surpris
ingly well without him. Dots Miller
Is still displaying sufficient skill to
be a valuable acquisition to the. Pi
rates, and, In fact, all the members
of the team have a feeling that they
are going to win the pennant.
The pennant hopes of the Pirates,
notwithstanding they are fourteen
full games behind the Giants, are
not entirely out of the question. That
they will have to go at a terrific gait
right up to the very last ditch is a
moral certainty, but that the Giants
will also have to maintain a Gatling
gun speed is also a matter of admis
sion, As the teams are going, it would
be silly to predict any consecutive
number of vietprtes for one club over
the other. If anything, you would have
to tie to the Giants on their home
grounds and all. The Pirates, though,
are rather noted for the way they
play against New York, and the
games between the Giants and Pitts
burgh, even without Wagner, are still
a rare old treat.
Although Wagner Is looked upon in
the light of a bench warmer at pres
ent, the ‘‘Flying Dutchman” is des
tined to become famous in another
way. Selected by the Carnegie Mu
seum of Pittsburgh as the ideal base
ball player of modern times, Wagner,
when he is all through with the great
national game, will be asked to give
his worn uniform and his palmless
glove to the institution for future
preservation. It Is a grand tribute
and it goes out to a man worthy of
the honor. Wagner, for years, ha*
been the world’s greatest exponent
of our national game and he has
never shamed it for a minute. Others
there are who might have been
chosen for the honor, but none, it can
be said in positive truth, are more de
serving. For Matty, when the time
comes, something ought to be done,
and I look to New York to do itself
proud when the “Greatest Pltchfr of
Them All" passes out of the baseball
Bail Johnson has wisely refrained
from interfering in the now much
discussed New York-Chlcago deal.
That Manager Chance got hooked, in
a way, there isn't any doubt, but that
he should make a "belch” is also a
little out of order. Baseball man
agers are not angels, by any means,
and trades are made on the judgment
of those concerned. Johnson has
“kept off,” ns It were, and his Judg
ment in this respect seems to be good,
as usual. For a moment it looked as
If Ban was going out to Chicago and
tear Manager Callahan to ribbons,
but when he learned more about the
deal and recalled that Charley
Comtskey might have something to
say about the affair he dropped the
matter entirely.
Hal Chase has been in trouble or
making trouble for others for years.
He made life miserable for more than
one person over in New York and
now, even in Chicago, he is respon
sible, as the New York end of the
trade, for much of Chance's worries.
Chase is going well for the White
Sox, but, spoiled child that he is, he
will get in the dumps there as he did
in New York, only he will not last
bo long under Comlskey ns he did tin
der Frank Farrell.
Boston is in for more hard lines.
Joe Wood, the Rod Sox's greatest
pitcher, Is out of the game with a
sore thumb. He will be out of the
fray, too, It is said, £or some time,
but what's the difference? Boston
hasn't a ghost of a show to again
win the pennant.
Jake Stahl is receiving much sym
pathy over the treatment he has re
ceived by the Boston Club. Even
John McGraw takes a shot at those
concerned. McGraw, in a signed ar
ticle, says: "Boston gave Stahl an
automobile when he won the pennant
last year, and now this year he is
given the gate.” That Is terse and
true. Big men In baseball fall hard
and suddenly sometimes. Stahl's case
might be cited as a calamity.
That Thorwald Ellegaard made an
excellent impression on the vast
crowd of fans at the Velodrome, Sun
day, is not to be denied, and the
spectators were not slow in showing
their appreciation of his efforts. No
foreign cyclist has ever appoared here
and been more royally received. Emil
Eriol was well liked and attracted
much attention, but he didn't get the
handclaps that Ellegaard was show
ered with Sunday. And the Dane
was so tickled at his reception that
he spoke mota about the way he was
treated than the fact that he had
won after the races were over. As
a victor over Alfred Grenda, Elle
gaard, of course, can't claim any
wonderful feat, yet Grenda, in several
ways, is one of the very best men at
the track He was outraced by Elle
gaard and he was outgeneralled a
mile. He was so busy watching the
Dane, who produced a new style, that
he forgot all about himself. Elle
gaard felt certain of victory and he
naturally took every chance. After
the first heat, in which he rode 104
gear, he changed to 100 gear, and was
better able to Jump when the time
came. In the first heat he had some
trouble getting by, but in the second
heat he went to the front early and
kept in front without much trouble.
He didn’t win by much of a margin
In either heat, but he won rather
handily at that.
What Jackie Clark will do against
Ellegaard Wednesday night is a prob
lem to solve. Jackie is a better gen
eral now than ever and he rides well
in his matches. He should give the
Dane a hard tight, though it is doubt
ful if he can beat him. In fact, Elle
gaard has shown so much brains in
his one start that It may take Kra
mer to encompass nis defeat. Aftei;
the Clark match, according to Man
ager Chapman, Cavanagh will be the
Dane's opponent. Goullet is due to
follow, but It may be that Kramer
will get him before ‘‘Goullie.” He is
here for six races only, and Kramer
is supposed to meet him three times.
If beaten by Goullet, Kramer would
be disappointed—and so would Elle
gaard, who was brought over here
purposely as an opponent for the
American champion.
Jim Flynn is giving out interviews
intended to convey the impression
that he figures Gunboat Smith a
cinch in their coming bout at the Gar
den in New York. He tells how he is
going to “go at hlm'% and after he
has w°n what b« plana to do. Flynn
expects, after defeating Smith, to get
a fight with Al. Palzer, and, still
further, to go to Europe and there
meet Georges Carpentler and possibly
Jack Johnson, who is now there.
Flynn, whether he wins or not over
Smith, Is sure to get a good beating.
He can't get away from it. He fights
in close and ho takes everything that
comes his way and then, when his
opponent is tired and sick at heart,
Flynn comes out of his hole, as it
were, and makes things most Inter
esting for his adversary. But, win or
lose, Jim never fails to get his good
and plenty. Ho just can't get a
start, and It is not until after he has
taken a real hard licking that he be
gins to show his tenacious fighting
skill. On all we have seen of both
men, Smith would seem to be the bet
ter fighter, but, as Flynn says, Gun
boat will have to be a better man on
August 8 than he was the night he
fought George Rodel, if he hopes to
win from him. That’s also excellent
The arrival of Sam Langford, the
only and original "Tar Baby," is
sure to stir up affairs In pugilistic
doings. Langford comes back after
a two years' stay in Australia, where
he fought some terrific battles with
Jim McVey, another Senegambian.
At present Langford is out on the
coast, where he is matched to fight
four rounds with Charley Miller, the
trial horse. Langford, who has gen
erally found it difficult to secure
formidable opponents, will find Joe
Jeannette, his worthy old foeman,
ready for him. No sooner had Sam
uel set foot on American shores
than Dan McKetrlck, Jeannette’s
nyinager, was on his trail. Langford,
who would just as leave pass up
Jeannette, will very likely have to
give him attention, for MCKetrick
is sure to force him Into a corner
and compel him to fight or else ad
mit he is afraid.
Manager McKetrick is booming
Jeannetto as the next champion and
he is booming New Jersey as his
home State.
"Well, Joe, it looks as if New Jer
sey will at last sport the world’s
heavyweight title flag," says Dan in
a letter to me. "The papers have
the gladsome news that Langford
has returned from Australia and also
the fact that as soon as the steamer’s
smoke was sighted coming up ‘Frisco
bay all the ‘white hopes’ on the
coast immediately snatched up tele
phones to assure the various sport
ing editors that they had drawn the
color line. This means that the ‘Tar
Baby’ has to contend with what I
have, been up against for a couple
of years around here. The New York
boxing commissioners made it
smoother for the ‘holes' here when
they drew the line for them. But
Langford must now make good on
the contract he signed with Uncle
Tom McCarey a couple of years ago.
You will recall that Sam signed to
fight Joe In Los Angeles, but he
changed his mind and hiked for Aus
tralia via Vancouver, and this is his
first appearance since then.
"I have wired McCarey and told
him I was ready to tnke the first
train to Los Angeles and would be
ready to do battle on Labor Day. I
also told McCarey that he could as
sure Langford that I would not con
sider any ten-round, no-decision con
tests here in case that Samuel had
any Huch idea in mind. I will give
McCarey a week to make Langford
live up to his contract to fight Jean
nette and if not will complete the
arrangements for my trip abroad,
where 1 have practically arranged
with Manager Vienne, of Paris, for
two contests for Jeannette, the first
to he fought on October 1. Vienne
offers me two fights, no opponents
named. This is immaterial, for
Vienne will have more (rouble in
getting a ’white hope’ or ‘hopes'
to fight Joe than getting my signa
ture to a contract. I figure that
Vienne wants Joe and Carpentler
and will make the latter agree to a
"I prefer the fight with Langford,
of course, for the winner of that
contest will be the real heavyweight
champion of the world and Mista
Jack Johnson will have to meet him
or forfeit his title, which he has prac
tically done now when he turned
down the offer last year from Paris
to meet Joe.”
Sam Langford has been barred from
boxing Charles Miller in Frisco, and
no one. now that such announcement
has been made, is surprised. Lang
ford is in bad repute in more than
one city. On the coast, though, every
thing goes, unless you offend the
•gang,” when you are "in bad.”
That's what Langford, no doubt, has
done. For one thing, he practically
made a match with Joe Jeannette be
fore he left for Australia, two years
ago, and he will have that to answer
for. He may get by eventually after
much fixing up, and if so, he will
probably be compelled to meet Jean
nette. Anyway, Dan McKetrick,
Jeannette's manager, is after Sam,
and he is likely to bring about the
issue. A long fight between Langford
and Jeannette would draw well on the
coast and the winner might possibly
receive some attention somewhere
else. In New York there is nothing
doing for the Senegambians, as the
Boxing Commission has hoisted the
bars. In Europe, though, there is
much attention and much money for
the black men, and Langford or Jean
nette might become heroeB over in
London or Paris.
Jack Johnson, out of the question
in any line in this country, is over
in Paris trying to make good. He
is having his troubles there, too,
for in his first appearance last night
ihe was hissed. The hissing came,
It Is said, from a small group of
Americans and Johnson went
through his sparring act unmindful
of the derision. Several years ago
James Corbett, as champion of the
world, appeared at the same theatre
and was royally received. Johnson
was believed to be popuiar in Paris,
but his latest escapades have no
doubt been heard of over there. He
may escape punishment in this coun
try, but lifts will not be very jolly
anywhere for him now.
