W. D. Huntington, the new vice
president, started in the fertilizer
business in Cincinnati. He was with

New York, Aug. 8 Connie Mack and
his Athletics liive just one more!
chance today to escape the ignominy of,
tieiug the American league record for:
consecutive defeats. They have lout 19 j
straight nnd have won but five games ,
out of the lost 07. !
The record for successive is 20 estnb-j

fighting teams. . St; Louis nnd Washing

of the league here tomorrow and the
question will bo thoroughly discussed.
Just how poor may be the eyesight of

manager of the Giunts, had New York
funclom guessing today when he was
quoted ns refusing to deny a rumor that
he might retire from bnsebull at the

"Twenty-six years is n long time to

fans up on their toes, and it looks as if
the balance of the Inter-City season, so

Salem will play the Kirkpntricks hers
next Sunday, and .Camas a week from
Sunday. If the I.ojus win both of these
games, and the Baby Beavers, who are
