Keene and Cole To Be On
Edge For Championship
At Fanning Bee
The report from Stayton that Cole,
tlio Stayton strilseout twirler, will en
deavor to futton. up both his average
and his reputation against the Senators
has put the locals on their mettle anil
they even suggested that Kcene would
secure more strikeouts than Cole. It
appears that Stayton heard about this
boast and came back with the state
ment that they were willing to bet a
few cigars that Cole would far out
shine the Salem twirler.
It is entirely possible, however, that
if the Stayton fans would wager their
hard earned coin on the prowess of
Colo against the elusive spitter of
Keene they are likely doomed to dis
appointment, but then some people must
be shown and at- any rate a pitchers'
battle of no mean proportions is cer
tain to start when Baker's melodious
voice announces "Ladees and Gen'lm'n,
the battcrees for today's game are:
Stayton has secured Bnrtholcmy, an
ex city leaguer who is reported to have
signed up with the coast league, to act
as the buffor for Cole's cnnnonball
delivery. It is said that no local Stay
ton catcher can hold him. Whether it
is-tho smoke or the steam the report
does not stato.
Sunday's game will be the last on
the Salem grounds this year as most
of the players and nearly all of the
fans will bo taken to the country to
help harvest the coming crop of hops
and the Senators are anxious to end
the season with a win as they started
it by dropping tho opening game.

HAVING GOOD IKS
Hard Times of Which Mag
nate Complains Have Not
By George E. Holmes.
New York, Aug. 2S. Tho hard times
that aro popularly supposed to be haunt'
ing baseball magnates this year np
parently have not reached tho player
crop. More pitchers came up out of the
tall grass at the close of last season
and showed stuff enough to stick than
in years. The Feds undoubtedly are
partly responsible, because 16 big
league managers were indefinitely more
patient with the rookies this year than
heretofore. It also is possible that the
requirements wer.en't so great this year,
but whatever may bo the reason
Out of a dozen classy looking young
workmen, the effervescent Mr. Mam
max of Pittsburg stands out like a
headlight on a dark night. Mnmmax
can be classed as a rookie at tho start
of the present season, as he didn't do
enough work for Fred Clarke last sea
son to get his name in the official list
of pitchers. But he certainly is .mak
ing up for it. By his efforts alone, al
most, the Pirates have earned serious
consideration as flag contenders. Take
the 19 games that he has won, out of
the Pirates won column, and it'll look
rather depleted. Tho Pirates would be
fussing with C. Herzog for the cellar.
Evan the great Messcrs, Alexander and
Johnson lose a littlo of their lustre be
Dale of the Reds, and Bell of the
Dodgers, are two more chuekcrs who
came up this season and have earned
their spurs.' Both havo been lingering
around between .025 and .6"0 all sea
son, which is a pretty hefty mark for
rookies to mako their first year out,
especially with clubs that haven't been
contenders alll tho time. Dale has been
the steadiest pitcher the Reds have had.
The Dodgers, with Wilbert Robinson
and his well known penchant for de
veloping young pitchers, have been
exceptionally fortunate in getting good
pitching this season. Two more of
Robinson's proteges Appleton and
Smith having been giving him a good
brand of slinging, and it is to this that
Brooklyn fans owe their pennant hopes.
Smith has made good with a vengeance.
Recent averages show he has been pitch
ing .700 ball.
Karl Adams, the long, lanky young
ster who came to the Cubs from Jack
Hendricks' Indianapolis team, also has
shown stuff enough to stick under the
Big Top, though his work hasn't been
of a sensational nature. Boland of the
Tigers is another whose curves have
nuzzled tho sluucers in Ban Johnson's
loop considerably. Eoob and Sisler of
the St. Liouis Browns are aiso wormy
Branch Rickey thinks he has a won
der in this Sisler, and the youngster's
work certainly has been of a nature
to justify his suspicions.
Not for years hasi a rookie come up
who had versatnlity enough to piny
three positions and play them all well,
as Sisler lias. The former Michigan
star has pitched some gilt-edged ball
for the Browns, played in the outfield,
and handled first base like a veteran.
And on top of all this, he's been pitch'
ing tho old pill at a rate close to .300
Trulv a remarkable man.
John McOraw has not failed to get
a few likclv looking minors, either.
Hrninnrd, who enme from Texas, has
stolen Fred Merkle's job nt first, and
Bnhhington tho young Brown Universi
ty player in spite of being "the only
Phi Beta Kappa in the big leagues," is
looking good in the outfieM.

Maurice McLauxhlin (photographed
Forest Hills, L. I., August 28.
(Speciul) America's new generation of
tennis players are picked to sweep the '
veterans off their feet in the national ;
championship tournament, which begins!
on the twenty-four clay courts of the j
West Side Tennis club at Forest Hills,
L. I., today. j
The old time stars are rapidly fad-'
ing. Ut the 1SH4 hat s iirst ten, ac
cording to the national ranking, sev-1
on are comparative yonnguters. The ;
only veterans left are Knii H. Bohr, I
V. J. IMotlner and i. is. Alexander.
Four of the other seven are Cnlifor-1
nia "phen'oms." The crnck jdnyers of!
yesteryear have been brushed aside
by the smashing play and dashing i
speed of the youngsters. i
In 1909 Maurice McLoughlin and 11. j
H. Long came out of the west and
forced V. S. N. h. T. A. officials to!
take notice. When the next ranking
list was published they were ulaced
at sixth and. seventh, respectively.

WRESTLING MATCH AT ST. PAUL.
The wrestling mrtch pulled off at
St. Paul last Thursday evening between
Jerry Pellund, of St. Pnul, and O. R.
Kolsman, of Montana, proved to be a
long drawn out affair with no falls.
After wrestling for ono hour and eight
minutes the St. Paul man, who was the
aggressor throughout, gave up, and the
referee calld th match a draw and de
clared all bets off. The Montana man
gave Pelland any ml everny hold tn:it
ho wanted i:nd broke eneh one so easily
that there was no chance for Pelland tit
even turn him over. .,,.,.,
At no time during the match did the
Montana man attempt to take the ag
gressive and seemed to be playing a
waiting game, knowing that the other
man could not throw him. Tho referee
stated that a return match would be
pulled off In 30 dnrs, hut 1 it seeing
doubtful whether the St. Pool man will
care to take annthrr chance on such a
hrd proposition. Woodlmrn Independent.
