BY BOB PIGUE. The Little Rack Travelers have won the 1820 perinant In the South ern association of baseball clubs, marking the first time In the history of the league that a gonfalon ha gone west of the Mississippi. The Travelers, by playing consist, ent ball for the past couple of months, outdistanced and outen dured the New Orleans Pelicans, Atlanta Crackers and Birmingham , Barons, and came home with room to spare. The Pelicans -were the strongest foes for the flag that the Travelers had, ' but after Shortstop Joe Sewell went to the Cleveland Indians, the Pels seemed to lose their qtIp- BEST BALl'cLUB WON. There's no denying the fact that the best ball club In the league came out victorious in this season's hunt for the flag. Taking the Travelers, man for man, coupled with the shrewd managerial ability of Kid Elberfekl, and you dis cover that it was without question the best club In the Dixie major this year. All the season the Travelers naa ex cellent pitching, with Rube Robinson, the star southpaw, doing his share of the hard work in turning back opposing clubs. The Rube had one of his best seasons this year, and was a big factor in the auccess of the Little Rock team. In addition to Robinson there was Dutch Hengeveld and Moses Yellowhorse, who were always to be depended upon. El berfeld also hacr Bome lesser-light pitch ers, who showed quite a bit of class before the season closed. The Travelers were a fighting aggre gation from the word go. They neve let up. On several occasions they ap peared to be all in snd through, but they would come back stronger than ever, and kick In with a string of vic tories. Kid Elberfeld, the manager of the Little Rockers, is a fighter himself, and he has kept his men inbued with a fighting spirit all year, and it is due to this factor that thev have been able to come through with a flag after many lean and disappointing years. MANY GOOD HITTERS. The Travelers on the offensive con stitute the strongest team In the league, having.' out hit all other clpbs this season. The Memphis Chicks until re cently had this honor, but the. Tribe of .lack Lewis relinauished this to the Little Rockers as the drive for the flag that the Travelers had launched became more pronounced. ... Bins: Miller and Harrv Harper, two of Little Kock's leading hitters, are of tne slugger type, ana arove out many hits that helped the Travelers In cop ping the flag. Harper led the Southern league In hitting practically all the last couple of months of the season, while Miller, who was in the .800 class, was tha learflnr home-run hitter of the cir cuit, with a total of 19 four-base clouts . a: lo Ills urvuii. In addition to these two sluggers the team had some timely hitters on the club, among whom worthy of mention are George Distei and Scrappy Moore, second baBeman ana tnira oaseman, re spectively. 'It was a blow from Moore's bat that drove In the winning run that cinched the flag for Little Rock Wed nesday in Little Rock, while playing Nashville. HAD GOOD CATCHER. Tony Brottem, without question one of the leading catchers In the minor leagues today. Tony was In the major ity OI gailieH, HI1U 1MB glen uciciioi.c work back of the plate,, coupled with his timely hitting, was one of the most jMnr.,nn, fornr. In tha Travelers' successful hunt for the pennant. IIIQ UCHl UU UUU wuii uno flag. And there's not a club in the i.airiin that hvriidbrps the Pebble Cltv of their success. ATLANTA-N. 0. TIED. Neck and neck are the New Orleans Pelicans and Atlanta Crackers when it con.es to winning pennants In the South ern league. Both the Crackers and Pelicans have finished ahead of the field live times since 1901, thereby belngvtied for flag winning. The Pels were leading all clubs with a quintet of ribbons until the Crackers made a strong battle this year and grabbed off another gonfalon, and now the two cities are tied at five all The Crackers copped their flags In the years 1S07. 1909, 1917 and 1919. The Pelicans were successful In their quest for the pennant in the seasons of 1905, 1910, 1911, 1915 and 1918. The Nashville Volunteers are the runners-up when It comes to finishing ahead of the field. The Vols have cop ped the crown on four occasions. The first two pennants the Southern ever had were won by Nashville, the Vols copping In 1901 and 1902. There was a long lay-off In between flags and not until 1108 did the Capitol City outfit win again. Again in 1U16, arter another long nerlod of idleness, the Vols went over with a flag, winning with Roy Ellam at the helm. The Bismingham Barons are third for flaK-winnlng nonors, having bagged a trio of penants. The Birminghainmers were successful in 190B, 1912 and 191. Memphis brings un the rear In nen- nant-grabbing, the Bluff City having only managea to get a couple oi rags since it had a berth In the Sunland ilrcu)t. The Chicks were in front In 1903 and 1904, but since that time they have done nothing to speak of, having imisnea in tne secono aivision tne great er portion of the time. To cities nbw In the Southern have yet to cop a flag. The Chattanooga Lookouts and Mobile Bears have always been on the outside looking in. The Chattanoogans ' have had the hardest luck, having finished In the first divi sion nine times. The Mobile Bears finished second In 1912. 1913 and 1914. but all the rest of the time they were hovering around the last four. SelmU, Shreveport and Montgomery, which had berths in the Southern at different imes during the 19-year pe riod, never seriously threatened to win a flag. Montgomery finished second on two occasion, but was beaten out. FORT WORTH. Tex., Sept. 16.

HOW BABE RUTH HITS IN MOYIES NEXT WEE Of COIlrsa- everv iiAjiehAll fan In Mom phis knows Babe Ruth and what he iioo aueompnsnea mis season. Jo lew are plan meg a trip East to witness at least one game in the series if the Yankees' enter the world's series. Rtill others are more than anxiously watch- uK.ana waiting tne summers end in Jrder to see if tha Bambino makes good in the annual classic, providing, to be sure, that the New York club heads the American league procession at me winaup. Babe has slammed out 49 homers so, far. Itws a foregoao conclusion that he will Vop the half century irmrk and sei a recora mat will stand for year. Ruth's hitting prowess has been attri buted to many things. Concensus of opinion among the wiser baseball writers, however. Is that hln mlirhiv drives come as a result of most won derful development in the back and shoulders and a thorough technique of batting form. Beginning Sunday local bugs will be given opportunity to get a closeup of Ruth and to study the precision with which he goes about the business of busting back fences on short drives and clearing the walls In many In stances.) A slow motion picture show ing closeups of Babe Is booked at Loew's Lyceum the first half of the week. It was taken during a Yankee game and at a high rate of speed. When released at the regular rata tha film clearly shows at slow motion every M.wvc viia suir muaes. BAMBINO CRASHES , TWO EXHIB1TI0NJ0MERS TOLEDO, Ohio, Sept. 16.

MANY KILLED AND HURT BY BLAST IN FINANCIAL CENTER (Continued From First Pape.) of typewriter specialties, four persons, one a woman, were killed while working in the bond department of J. P. Morgan & Co. Matthews said he was passing the office of Mr. Lamont when trie explosion occurred. Mr. Lamont, he said, was dictat ing a letter at the time and apparently was unhurt. All hospitals near the financial district were crowded with injured, and physicians were summoned from all over the city The call for soldiers from Governor's island was sent by Martin Vogel, assistant secretary of the treasury, who has charge of the subtreasury. With all the windows blasted out, Col. William Wiegel Chief of staff at the military post, announced that 200 infantrymen would patrol the financial district with fixed bayonets day and night with orders to allow no one to ap proach government property. Mayor Hylan arrived at the scene at 1 p.m. to direct the efforts of municipal authorities., The cause of the explosion was dynamite in the street, Police Commissioner Enright said that he had been informed by mem bers of the Morgan firm. To check up on the story that a powder wagon was struck by an automobile agents of the department of justice asked Er I. du Pont de Nemours & Co. for a detailed report on the location of all their wagons at the time of the explosion. Officials of the company, questioned by newspaper men, asserted they were not carrying explosives to points in the vicin ity where, excavations are being made. x Junius Spencer Morgan, son of J. P. Morgan, and a mem ber of the firm, said he was' showored with broken glass, but was not hurt. When the explosion occurred, he said, he was sitting in his office on the irst floor of the building, while other members of the firm were at a meeting on an upper floor. Remains of the wrecked truck and its horses found at the scene of the explosion were examined by the police, who ques tioned construction men as to whether the wagon resembled the type used in hauling explosives. Several construction men ex pressed firm belief that the wreck was that of a powder wagon. At 1:30 several repreesentatives from the district attorney s office arrived on the scene to start an investigation. Hiram Davis, a chauffeur for Winslow S. Pierce, a lawyer at 40 Wall street, told police the first flash of the explosion came from an automobile standing in the middle of the street midway between the subtreasury and the J. P. Morgan .building. A wrecked automobile found at the scene does not show, however, that the explosion came from inside of the car. The Broad street hospifal announced at 2 o clock that it had treated nearly 200 persons, mostly men, for injuries due to the explosion.

The Standard oil company, who are backing the F'olarlnes, have spared no expense In assembling the fastest base ball machine that has ever been as sembled In Memphis and from the looks and recent perforuianci-x of the club, there is little doubt s lo the superiori ty of the club over any amateur ag gregation In the South.
