Judging fiom the way the batters m both the American and National leagues are hitting the ball this yeai, new records are surely to be made. Iuring the present season an unprecedented number of extra base drives have been made. There is evety reason to believe that new records will be established^for two-baggers and three- base drives as well as for home runs. Since there is something magical in the word "home run," naturally the fans throughout the country are Interested In the player who manages to get the greatest number of foBr-base drives during the season. At the present time enthuslastls all over the country are watching the ba» work of young Fred Luderus, the Phillies' flrst baseman, who, by his batting this year, has become as famous as the noted Cobb or Hans Wagner L/uderus Is after the home-run record made in 1899 by Buck :FYeeman of the Washington Nationals Freeman that year established the modern, home-run record by making 25 homers The National League clubs have finished a little more than half their schedule, and during that time the Philadelphia player has scored more than half the number needed to break the old figures. Up to Monday Luderus was credited with fourteen home runs, all made on the field in Philadelphia. Sfeybold a Hitter. Socks Seybold holds the American League record for home runs. He established It in 1902. The former Athletic, who is now playing ball in the American Association, in that yeiar made sixteen. Luderus Is confident that he will be able to surpass this record. Tim Jordan, a former Brookljn player, now with Toronto, made a close approach to Seybold's record In 1906. He also repeated in 1908. Jordan in both years made twelve homers. Last season Fred Beck, of the Boston Nationals, and Schulte, of the Cubs, were tied for the home-run honors In the National League. They each got ten. Schulte is coming fast In this line this year. It Is a fact that one man has made seven homers in a single game Wright a Slugger. On June 13, 1867, Harry Wright, playing for the Cincinnati club against the Holt club, of Newpoi t, Ky , made that number. A year later Lip Pike made six In one contest. As late as 1874 Al Reach, Klelnfelder, and Potter earned the distinction of making five In a single contest. They were playing,with the Athletics then On May 9, 1866, this team made nineteen runs In a single game against a club at New Castle, Del The Philadelphians scored 131, runs In that "contest" In 1882 Muldoon, of Cleveland, piled up four, and Crooks, of Omaha, seven years later, made a similar number for a single game Ping Bodie, another young player who Is making good this year In big league company, eclipsed Freeman's record of 25 four-base drives Last year, when the White SOXT outfielder played with San Francisco, Bodie made SO home runs during the Pacific coast race Freeman's record is the modern major league record, however, and the goal for whloh Luderus is striving:.

CHARLIE DOOIW, MANAGER PHILADELPHIA NATIONALS. Noted of the Nationals BLANKED BY FISHER. CONTINUED PROM FIRST PAGE. New York again on Monday. Warhop will be Chase's pitching selec- lon. Either Groom or Becker will go for the lome hopes This series now stands a tie, each hav- ng won seven games. tVashlngton's home record Is 14 won, lost, and a percentage of .700. Dixie "Walker may go to the mound In ne of the remaining two games with the Highlanders. Nsw Tork and Washington leave at the ame time on Tuesday night, going, re- pectively, to Cleveland and St Louis. Wolter was on flrst base every time up, twice on hl,ts and twice on passes. But le had a luckless life, being thrown out at second twice and at the plate once. Theie was a good crowd out, Its size indicating that the teams would have layed to capacity but for threatening weather. It looked like rain In any spot Cashion kept himself in the .300 list by landing on Fisher for an infleld single In the eighth. He hit a long fly to Wolter In the third, and popped to Knight In the sixth. MoAleer defied fate and gave his bat- jng order a shake-up, as a result of Cunningham's advent Walker batted third, and McBrlde and Conroy moved up a otch each. All of Fisher's strike-out work was done in the waist of the same He got Walker and Gesslei in the fourth, Conroy in the fifth, and Walker in the sixth. Those were all of his victims. Two of the bases on balls given by Cashion started innings. That of the flrst became a run. One given to Hartzell in the sixth didn't count, Sweeney hitting into a double play. Lelivelt replaced Walker In the eighth, because of the way he has made good In pinches recently Walker had been very weak against Fisher, striking out twice and lifting a fly to Gardner the other, time. Doc Gessler hit In extremely hard luck In the seventh he drove a line fly to right, that went straight at Wolter. In the ninth he almost knocked Fisher down with a smash that the pltchel couldn't sidestep It fell at Fisher's feet, and an out resulted Cashion had onlv one strike-out after the flist Inning in which he got Chase and Cree Bach went after a bad ball for Ms third strike Hemphill started with the pitch to Chase, and it was so wide that Street juggled it and could not recover for a throw. Chase turned one of the fielding plays that have made him famous In the sixth Inning. Milan hit a roller toward right. The flrst baseman hooked the ball off the ground with one hand, on the run, keep- Ing at full speed from the time he started for the ball until he made flrst base In the entire game, including safe hits and flies caught Washington hit only six balls to the outfield Four of the si^ hits went there, and three files wprc caught The extra fielding chancre credited TVAS a foul fly, caught by Cree after a long run. Cunningham's lest seems to lia\e improved his fleldlng work. He li fast again, and Is covering a lot of ground to his left, which he could not do In the spring In the second Inning he cut oft hits by Hartzell and Sweeney on running stops such as he showed In the Friday gam a. He will play the bag until further notice, to give Elberfeld, who is very lame, a needed rest. Street made a good play that got him nothing in the third He was on first, with one out, when Milan hit to Gardner. The latter waited for the runner, planning to tag him, and then to double Milan. Street stopped up, forcing the play at flrst base, but Chase relayed it to Knight In time to double Street as he came In It got nothing here, but was a lesson to some of the younger plavers, TV ith more speed \vho repeatedly have run into double plavs of this sort when tliev might have stalled off one out Hartzell, and had to put the ball over or let him walk. Hartzell slammed it up against the side of the main storage building. This Is outside the fence, and of course, a hit against It constitutes home run. Of the three home runs over the wall made on the new park, this is the flrst hit in that section. In the ninth, again with two down, Hartzel drove to center-field fence for hia second cii cult clout The one other threat New Toik made was In the eighth. Wolter tiipled with one out, but McBride go him at the plate on Hemphill's grounder Very Quiet Until the Eighth. For seven innings Washington's ·inabil- ity to make a start on Fisher caused the park to resemble a morgue in Its st 11- ness Four hits, were made In that leng*J of time, but three came with two oat Schaefer stole after making his second hit,, in the sixth, and was the flrst National to get to second base. The same batter got the one hit referred to as not being made after two were gone, opening the fourth with it But Fisher struck out Walker and Gessler, and McBrlde filed. Street got a pass as a starter In the third, and Milan hi' into a double play after Cashion flied. Street was out when Cashion started a little noise in the eighth. He bounced a single off Fisher's glove Milan drove a line safety over second. Sehaefer waited patiently with Fisher until it was thiee and two. Then he swung, and lifted a foul foi Sweeney. Lellvelt was substituted for Walker, to whom Fisher had' proved a profound mystery The pinch hitter shot one toward right, but Chase got it back of flrst base, and made the Iay They died in order in the ninth. Che score: MANAGERS!! Often Turn Down Players Who Later Make Good. MILLER NOW HELD FOR $10,000 Chance, Clarke, and Griffith Could~Not See Player Whom Montreal Wants Fancy Price For--Comiskey Tells One on Joe Cantillon Regarding Refcent Purchase of O'Toole From St Paul. Spends Nearly All His Time Preparing for "Hack." STARTS EAELY EACH MOENIN Champion Wrestler's First Stunt Is to Run 1O or 15 Miles Before Breakfast. Punches Bag for Hour or More in Afternoon, and Then Takes oil His Assemblage of Grapplers. Pittsburgh, Aug. 12.--Some of these men who buy and sell ball players certainly do have some bad half hours. What would you think If you had purchased a ball player; for $800, had sold him for $1,500 and then wanted hlip back and was asked $7,000 and several players? Wouldn't you feel like swear- Ing? A couple of years ago a fellow named Ward Miller became the property of the Cub team--was drafted from a small minor league and cost $300. Chance looked him over and figured he wasnTt quite right. Asked for a waiver, and the Pirates refused to allow him to go. That was. In the days when'you had to sell a man for whom you asked waivers. No pulling back. Well, Miller went to the Pirates. Clarkje looked him over. Alter a while he decided Miller wouldn't do, and the latter went to Cincinnati on a trade that made Blame Durbin, the former Cub pitcher, a Pirate. Griffith Passes Judgment. Clark Griffith looked over Miller and backed the Judgment of Chance and Clarke. He figured Miller would not do In the majors, and he went to the Eastern League. Well, this year he struck his stride. He is'bitting over .300-for the Montreal club and running bases like a wild man. George Huff, the Cub scouf, went to look him over. Huff wired President Murphy that Miller could be secured for $7,000 and two players, "Stick around until tomorrow; maybe they will come down." w»n Murphy's answer by wire to his scout. The next day the Cub president re- delved an answer. It read like this: "Price has gone up--now they want ?10,000," and the telegram was signed Huff. "Catch the first train or they'll boost the price to $20,000," were the Instructions of President Murphy. ' Don't you suppose the Cub magnate feels like bottling himself when he thinks of the time when he had this fellow at a cost of $300. One on Cantillon. And these same baseball men will give you a warm time if you attempt to convince them* that O'Toole, the St. Paul pitcher, cost fiarney Dreyfuss $22,500 in real money. Here's one that President Cominsky, of the Sox, tells on Joe Cantillon. Joe, It will be remembered, was formerly the manager of the Washington team In tine American League and then went to Minneapolis to boss that team. , "Joe had heard that somebody had offered Lennon $12,000 for O'Toole," said President Conjisky. "So the next time that Joe saw Lennon he opened on him" 'I understand that you have been offered $12,000 for O'Toole,' said Joe. " 'Yes,' was Lennons' reply. " 'Well, I guess I'm thfe biggest, fool of all,' said Joe. 'In the first place I didn't know there was anybody In baseball so crazy as to offer that much money for any ball player And, In the next place,' said Joe, 'I would have sworn there was nobody In baseball crazy enough to have turned down such an offer, once he had i f " Which shows you that the fans wtere not the only ones to gasp at the price. Even practical baseball men had a difficult time believing that any magnate would separate himself from that amount of money for a ball player. In fact, there are a lot of them who Btlll do not believe it. Humboldt, Iowa, Aug 12.--No champion training for a title wrestling or boxing bout ever woiked harder than Fiank Qotch, the wrestler, who is now preparing here for his match with Hackenschmidt, the Russian lion, on Labor day Gotch is doing^the most strenuous work of his career in an endeavor to "come back." Gathered around him is a group of men busily whipping him into shape. His camp is as imposing as those of Jeffries and Johnson Were last year. The largest assemblage of athletes this place has ever seen is gathered here. Gotch's trainers include Farmer Burns, Bmil Klank, Jesse Reiner, Harry Ordeman, Jim Ajsbell, Youssouf Hussane, and Gus Rogers. Starting at 7 o'clock, Gotch goes on the road each mprnlng for a 10 or IB mile jaunt After a few hours on the road he returns to camp for a rubdown. After his handlers are through*, with him he rests a while, and then partakes of a hearty breakfast. The work is |hen broken up by a long rest. Gotch is at work again by 2:30 in the afternoon. - .'Spends Strenuous Afternoon. Before he does any wrestling he generally punches the bag for an hour. This, he saye, hardens and strengthens his muscles. When tMs end of the training work is over he is ready to wrestle any of the men in camp for en hour and a half. Each man gets a chance to try to down the big fellow. As a rule, Gotch is through his work by 6 o'clock and ready for the evening meal. Bince he went into training Gotch hag gone to bed early. Late hours, he knows very well, offsets the good work done hi a day. Gotch's preliminary work Is done In the open. In River Side park a large platform has been erected, and here the clt Izens and friends of Gotch gather to watch the champion. Persons from al around drive into Humboldt every day to get a glimpse of the big wrestler and watch him toy with the men who are helping to put him in trim for Hacken Schmidt.

It is said by those connected with the club that no formal decision has been reached on the matter of next sprlrig's plans. It has been reported -that the team would \raln at home, Instead of going away to get the men In shape. It seems hardly probable that, once haying started forward, the club will recede, and will imperil Its newly founded hopes by a return to methods such as It Ijas indicated it is its intention to cast aside forever.

Sidney West, 14th and Sole Washington Agents for Dunlap Hats On the Golf Courses Tom Sharkey's Protege No Danger Sign for the Other Heavies. New York, Aug. 12 --If Jim Barry, the Chicago heavyweight, cannot fight any better than he did in his ten-round bout with Porky Flynn, of Boston, at the Twentieth- Century stag, then he might as well give up all hope of ever getting any nearer the top In the heavyweight class than he is at present. When Tom Sharkey, who is Barry's new manager, took hold of him, he openly declared that inside of a year he would have Barry the heavyweight champion of the world. After his showing against Flynn It certainly looks as If it will be a great many years before Jim will be sporting the title now held by Jack Johnson. Barry was beaten all the way, and the most surprising thing In connection with the bout was the fact that Barry was not put away. If FIj'nn was a stiff puncher there is no doubt that he would have had a knockout away before the final round started. Flynn threw enough blows Into Barry to stop many a fighter. Barry was completely up In the air all through the ten rounds as he could not seem to land any of his blows . ^ New Players for Red Sox.

TTp went the sash, anfl there hurtled through the air a drawing board and ginger jar. From the regions below came a howl ot pain, a subdued chur, and a faint odor of gasolene ascended to the top of the Fine Arts building 1 , at 215 West Fifty-seventh street, in the top of which the midsummer genius of the league is confined. Day and night there is war waged In the strip of street before the fane of the muses against the invading automobiles.

Paint tubes, old stretchers, bags of water, and picturesque curses, all hurled at random, have only a temporary effect in clearing the way Five or six times a day police headquarters get calls to clear the way In front of the building, and no sooner does the "traffic cavalry dash up than the automobiles have sped on their way Small boys, who act as their scouts, si\e the warning.
