Worcester was handed a trimming by the tailend Albany team, but the Pittsfield Hillies downed Waterbury twice, tieing Worcester for second place. O O Phew! Should be a warm session tomorrow at New field Park with the revived Hillies here for two games. O O Arguments and alibis cease right here. The Derbies got onlv nine safe cracks in the two games to Hartford's 19. O O Up To Joe Boehling Today But "Dixie55 Joe Boehling may daze the Senators today. He will oppose Miles Thomas of "no-hit-no-run" fame, accord ing to the Hartford dopsters. O O Gene Martin carried the keenest batting optics yesterday. One-third of the hits registered by the Derbies helped along his battling average. O O Johnny Thole is continuing at a steady clip batting .077, drawing pay checks without a miss and warming up the pitch ers.

Hartford, Aug. 20 Eugene Mc Cann and his leading Brown Derbies -were nonplussed by their double de .feat at the hands of the Senators iyesterday. Failure to hit Penning (ton and Head lost the games for the -Bridgeport pennant chasers, while iChet Thomas' combination exper ienced no trouble dn solving the de livery of Leasure in the first game and Stauffer in the second fray. Scores in both games were 6 to 1. The Derbies scored their, tally In the first game in the fourth round on a single by Ray and another by Martin and two infield outs. Thereaf ter the Derbies were quite docile in front of Ralph Head's pitching. Double Steal by Derbies. Bridgeport was the first to score .In the second game. The incident occurred in the second inning with two down. Kingdon beat out a bunt to Bantoro and advanced to third when Lai was safe on a slow roller to Neher. The double stea.1 was pulled and Kingdon was safe when Damm muffed Scheer's return peg. Bridgeport was peaceful through out before Pennington. In the eighth with none down, McLaughlin doubled but he stayed at second while the next three men were easily retired. In the ninth, "Kewpie" temporarily lost control and walked the first two men to face him. Smith, who has busted up many a ball game for Bridgeport, was inserted into the bat tin order in Thole's place, but he un graciously fanned. Kingdon was out, Bantoro to Hesse, on a prety play and the game ended when Lai filed to Haines. , In the ninth inning of game Ao. 1, Kane doublecrossed everyone when Instead -of smashing one, he dumped the pill into the iwield. The play caught the Brown Derbies off their balance and "Brick" easily beat the throw to first. GAMES TOMORROW, Pittsfield at Bridgeport (2). Springfield at Albany. Worcester at New Haven.

To offset any possibility of a recurrence of the attack the prescrip tion propounders have arranged to have an ambulance and a complete supply of bandages, braces and crutches on hand. The lawyers are not saying much, but they are wearing smiles. They are confident that Tom La very, the baby of the bar, will ltransform them from would be base ball players to club siwngers.

"talker will meet any man in the game today between 145 and ! sa'd Bulger last night. That goes for Mike Gibbons, Downey, Wilson, Bogash, Krug and all that bunch. And GET THIS: "Within six weelts Walker will get another crack at Britten. Walker surely will be the first man to meet. Britton if Leonard does ot come through. Harry Blanfus has a fine chance of patting that Leoiiard-Brittou match on right in Newark. That is straight." Rex Cox. Albany pitcher, is a candidate for the "Miracle Man" medal. He has won 13 out of 2 2 games he has twirled for the Lawmakers. How did he do it, they're all asking, Veteran Eddie Zimmerman, switched from Waterbury to Spring field, is getting a big hand from fans in the latter city on his brilliant playing at tfeird base. Eddie, although , a veteran, is still a great player and should be a valualifce asset to any club. "Moose" Mller may a victim of a lot of razzing and much of it is of the good natured sort, but Miller is one of the best umps in the league, in our opinion. Miller stands very little nonsense from the players, and if some of his tormentors who are protected by the wire barricades of grandstands would have the courage of hurling some of their guff at Miller on the street there would be less of it mingling in the air at ball games. "Moose" Miller is a fair and honest umpireif he does hail from New Haven. Bring on the Bogash and Delaney fight! The fans are clamoring for a go between these local boys. Tris Speaker, pilot of the Indians, is beimj hailed as the "original emer gency manager." He is always there in a pinch. He is a manager who gets 100 per cent, out of every player on his team. He knows how to handle men. Perhaps the Indians may be beaten to the wire by the Yankees. They may lose out to a club that abounds with power. But they sure ly will go down fighting like heroes and the team that finished ahead of them will know it has been in a pennant race. ., Josephus Smith, manager of Louis Bogash, although in Boston is still loyal to Bridgeport. In postal greetings to Tad Jordan, Smith punched out the following: "I have heard a lot of boosts for Boston beans and brown bread, but the old spaghetti and rye for me."

Old Jim Mutrie. who managed the Met ropolitans back in 1883, '84 and '85, was a visitor in the press box at the Polo Grounds yester day afternoon and was busy making comparisons between the players of today nid those cf the era when Jim was in his hey day. Mutrie did not hold that all the great ones played in the by gone era. '-We had some great teams in our day. but there seems to be some great ones now too." declared Mutrie, who is 71 years old and still very much inter ested in the major league races. "There is one thing to which I object strongly," said Jim. "I do not think that men should be taken out for pinch hitters. In our day it was a battle royal a picked nine against a picked nine. Why. one day in Buffalo, one of my players could not continue and I sked permission to send in another man. That permission was not given. But, that was go ing the limit the other way."

TRIMS LEWIS Kid Lewis, Canadian feather weight champion, Is one of the fastest and cleverest performers ever seen in the state. In his 12 round battle with Kid Kaplan of Hartford, in Meriden. last night, the ex-Canadian made the Meriden bearcat miss aplenty throughout the fray. Lewis' superb cleverness enabled him to cop the first five rounds with the excep tion of the second which went to Kaplan by a wide margin. But Kap lan came back and copped all of the remaining rounds with the exception of the ninth which was even. The semi- final of eight rounds be tween Soldier Gibson of New Haven and Tracey Ferguson of Wallingford was a corker. This soldier boy cer tainly could take punishment, as Fer guson hit him with everything in the 'book," the cover, and then some more, but he could not bring him down. In the two six-round prelim inaries, Young Leonard was handed the decision over Georgie Hesbor. and Georgie Lynch was awarded the ver dict over Young Proto of New Haven. clinched the victory over India when the team of Kumagae and Shimizu vanquished Fyzee and L.

Philadelphia, Aug. 20 The S80 yard middle Atlantic championship was one of the feature events on to day's program of swimming races scheduled at the Philadelphia Swim ming Club. ' OOASH CHOPS UP TILLMAN IN FAST BOUT Louise Bogash ma.de a big lilt be fore Ueston fight fans last night by his decisive win over Johnny Tillmaii. the Minneapolis welterweight. .0 gash was trained to the minute anA had no trouble in disposing of th.oi boxer from the Northwest. Tillman made his best showing in the early stages of the fight, but the last five rounds were Bogash's all the way. Local figh fans who have been doubting that Bogash could not reach the welter limit were taken by surprise when the cws reached here yesterday that the Bridgeport boxer ti-pped the scales at 147 pounds, while Tillman's weight half a pound less. Bogash started oft at a hurricane clip, getting in some heavy body clouts on his opponent which had Tillman guessing. Bogash continued to sock in vicious rights to the body of his adversary, and at the close of the second round the latter dis played signs of weakening. Tillman Was Game. Tillman displayed a- game spirit in the third, fourth and fifth sessions when he attempted to carry the bat tle to Bogash. but the local hoy got out of the way of his rushes and sent home some damaging punches that took the steam out of Tillman. In the fifth 1.. Bogash landed a left hand punch over Tillman's left optic that brought the claret. During the remainder of the fight Bogash outfought his foe to a stand still, the latter taking a lot of pun ishment. Fans expected to see Bo gash land a kayo, but the local bat tler failed to exert himself to tho limit and the fans got a long run for their money. Patsy Bogash Also Wins. Joe Giggs, a big Boston favorite, took a hard pummelling from Patsy Bogash. The latter fought one of the best fights of his ring career and won the applause of the Hub fans for his fast work. Patsy was outweighed, but the ex cess avordupois of Gibbs. was offset by Patsy s cleverness, who hit the Woonsocket pug at will. In the ninth, and tenth rounds Gibbs made a des perate effort to pull himself together and dispatched Patsy through the, ropes, but Patsy had a big reserve, of strength and administered a se vere beating to Gibbs. Sailor Darden, the highly tooted colored boxer, received the verdict over Paddy Flynn in a rough and tumble bout. The Bogash party arrived home early this morning. Do You Know That Local semi-iro ball fans are clamoring for a three cornered contest between the Crashos, Trans and North Ends for the City amateur championship. Manager George Row of the North Ends is willing, but the Irans and Crashos are a bit shy on the proposition. One German that carries a K. O. is Hans Breitenstein, heavyweight boxing champion ship of Germany, who hayoed Harold Rolph, heavyweight champion of the Canadian Army, in the 10th round, in Berlin. Oy Morgan, who pitched for Springfield last season, was the box sensation of the Eastern League last season and great things were predicted for Ins fu ture when he got in under the big tent. He led the O'Neil cir cuit pitehers in wins last season and joined the Braves, but he is in seclusion, being used only as an emergency boxman. President John Heydler of the National League, says the out field play this year is the best he has seen in many a season. He thinks the lively ball has helped to make it more spectacular, the gardeners being driven to the limit, to make catches of hard hit drives. Now and then one does go over the fence, that is true, but for every one that goes over outfielders race to the corners and drag down a dozen. Jake Daubert says the trouble with baseball is that it has be come too mechanical too set,, He thinks the fans want something surprising and upsetting in the way of play now and then. May be Jake is right. About the only unexpected r.tuff we get nowa days is when some runner steals third with a man already on the base. NORTH ENDS SET.
