Bert Humphries, aided and abetted by one, Barber, and sejten other Smokers, took the Highlanders meas ure yesterday afternoon via the white wash route, ine score being five to nothing. Humphries had everything that it takes to pitch winning baso ball with, speed, a good breaking curve and that most-needed thing of all control and the way he had the Highlanders begging for mercy must have done the old boy good. Ery opposed Humphries on the mound and was touched freely, and most always when hits meant nun. "Bugs" was off his usual standard and contributed largely to his own de feat, making a pair of costly errors and uncorking a wild pitch at the wrong time. Fenton was the only . .Highlander who seemed able to solve Bert's deliv ery oftener than once, the fleet-footed center fielder getting a brace of hits, one a real honest to goodness blow and the other of the infleldvajiety when he caught Humpy and Fobs both taking a nap and dumped one in the general direction of third base. Neither side was dangerous until the Bixth when the Smokers shoved over a brace of counters Vaughn, first man up, singled to right field. Foss bunted and when "Bugs" elected to try for Vaughn at second all hands were safe when the throw was wild and got away from Palmer. Barber dumped one between the box and third and when no one fielded It the sacks were gloriously lit up. Brackjpicked out ojiejo his lik ing and whaled it at Dean who could not get his hands on it and Vaughn and Foss scored. Leach grounded out Dean to Manes, Barber being held on third. Nance hit to Palmer who threw out Barber at the plate. Humpy end ed the inning by forcing "Dear Doc tor'' at second. The Highlanders continued to be helpless before the article of ball that Bert was heaving and were retired in order. The Smoker counted again in the seventh when LaMotte opened the in ning by singling to left. On a try for him at first Ery's peg was wild anJ Bobble pulled up at third, from which station he scored on Felix's sacrifice ffy to Stewart. Vaugnn grounded out, Dean to Manes, and Foss flew out to Fenton. The Smokers, to make it an odd number In the run column scored again in the eighth. Barber singled to left and took Fecond while Ery was throwing out Brack, and moved up a station when Palmer threw out Leach at first. "Doctor Nance," wno aia me receiving for the locals in tne second half of last season, counted Barber with a double to left center. Hum phries ended the inning, and the scor ing for the day by grounding out, Ery to Manes.

Manager Manes last night and was taken along on this trip. Mahoney, who has been pitching semi-pro ball around x the sand lots in Chicago, comes highly recommended and . is expected to prove a consistent win ner for the remainder of the season. Palmer and LaMotte, given upby all critics to be the best two short stops in the League, staged a pretty duel yesterday in which honors were about even. Palmer accepted ten chances without a bobble and swat ted safely once. LaMotta botbled two of his five chances but outhit Chick, getting a triple and a single on the day's count. And the wise-acres have been say ing that old man Bert Humphries was through. Yesterday's game looked like It. The old boy can still hit dime and while his speed has deterloated a little, he still has enough left to win In this League Fenton, Highlander center fielder, caught the Tampa infield asleep the first time up yesterday and dumped one down the third, base line for the first Highlander hit. Fenton has been doing this same thing quite often of late and getting away with it. Stewart, who has been pasting the apple with a vengeance here of late,, has been moved up In the batting or der to clean-up man, and It is expect ed that some of the Highlanders who have been dying on the bricks will be shoved over. Al Bertman and Art Kowalska, out fielder and inflelder respectively, from the fast NIeRen semi-pro team of Chicago, reported last night. Both boys are In fine condition, and reput ed to be good men. They may possi bly break into the League this after noon while the Highlanders are play ing the Caps a double header. Schrelber, who has been out of the game the past ten days with a lame wing. Is. In shape again, and will pos sibly be used this afternoon In the first game. If Paul Is not able to work, Manes will plrch It and try and make It three out of as manr starts.
