CAMDEN POST-TELBORAM. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 3, 1 9 1 !l GEORGE MULLIN CAMDEN A. C. Former Detroit and Federal J- League Star Completely Baf-'fles Speedy Camden City Aggregation.

Base on balls Off Mul lin, 3; off Rapp, 2. Wild pitch Rapp. Umpires Monroe and Dolan. RUBE RAPP IS SOFT FOR UPTOWN BUNCH Ably assisted by eight other versatile ball players, George Mullin, usi-while Detroit ' star and. Federal ku-gucr, enabled Camden A. C. to -administer the telling punch in the big vity series by slamming the once egotistical Camden City aggregation on Saturday at the downtown grounds in a rattling line contest which terminated in favor of the North Camden gallants by the round numbers of 7 vo 6. The hero of the contest was George Mullin. His . twirling was superb, while at the bat he cleaned up lor three i straight hits off Mr. Kapp. At all times, excepting . in the disastrous and rather lucky first inning when Camden City scored lour runs, Mullin was master of the. whole situation. After the opening frame the Camdeu - City bunch got but one run, a Kp-fly home run over the short left hud fenr.a. jl ball thai. . won M hnvA hi'tm caught easily on a regular ball field. The "home run" hit was the only bin-. gle the "Cities", got in the five following innings. In the seventh Bakey and uienaanmng annexed nits, but tuere was no further damage caused. O'Brien'a lucky triple in the first in- sings gave Camden City two runs lhat should not have been. In trying to field the easy fly to right, Moyer dipped over a wire used' to brace .he fence and fell, the ball rolling out of his hand, while Murphy and Bourum scored. . Timely hitting by Sagel and Murrhy when Mullin was still cold, gave Gardner's crew . the first two runs. Rube Rapp's young mountain of a pitching mound visibly bothered Mullin at the tart. Camden A. C. got away to a good tart by scoring in their inning. Fen- Glendenning laid down a pretty sacrifice. Sheehan smeared a single through second base and Fenton by a hard sprint reached the home station. - Camden City endeavored and almost succeeded in putting the game on ice by tallying a- quartette of counters in their Initial inning. Bakey walked and Glendenning went out on striken. , Sagel singled, scoring Glendenning, and Barcklow drove a high ny to C. Glendenning. Murphy also singled and Sagel tallied another run Bour-juin was transferred to first, ai.d when Moyer fell in fielding O'Brien's easy pop-fly both runners scored, and while the A. C. players ran to Moycr's asistance, thinking he was badly injured. O'Brien took third. Hyde then unceremoniously fanned. - With two out in the third, Bourauln got hold of a waste ball and knocked it over the right field fence. To niotte the game present a more interesting appearance, Barney Maguire's conorts annexed a pair of counters in thair section of the third. Fenton singled to centre. When Charley Glendenning hit the Xop of the right field fence Fenton scampered to third. Sheohaa caused several groans when he breezed and the best Wid Conroy could do was to fly to Bourquin. With Clouser at tha bat the crowd was pulling for Sis to come through and he did. He bent onufc of Rapp's offerings to left iicIJ, the ball hitting the fence, both Fenton , an Glendenning scoring. The A. C's. counted in the fourth and fifth, too. By reason of Bourjum muffing Conroy's fly, Wid was permitted to remain on first. Clouser tr.c-riflped and Conroy scored on Moyer's out. Murphy to - Barcklow.' In the fifth O'Donnell singled and went to third when Mullin hit to deep centre. Fenton flied out to Bourquin and C. Glendenning singled for the seco;ii time, scoring O'Donnell. The two winning runs were scored in the eighth, and ninth frames. O'Donnell doubled to left and Mullin registered his third straight single, O'Donnell Hcoring. Two runs were thrown away .- by Camden A. ('. Jthxaug.h dajreidevll base .running. Bakey's grand fielding 'and throwing cutting both Fenton and C. Glendenning off at Jhe i))ai;e.Iii.,the..,nlntli jtsarcKiow s runs, iisf.t or u tsriqn s throw on Conroy's bounder gave Wid a life, and he-scored after Glenden ning had retired the side on groun-a ders. The only time that Camden .nty ;"" threatened-was in the seventh inning, when Bakey singled and' Georgia ' Glendening douhled to centre. Sagel .was fanned by Mullin and Rapp having previous, flied out visions of a couple of runs loomed up when Barcklow shot a hot one toward Sis zl . louBcr x ne.uau. jstrucn -is- on -uie leg and rolled out into right field. By quickly covering the bag and taking Clouser' s throw Mullin saved the .lay, as Barcklow was caught by nn inch margin. It was a thrilling play. Besides Mullin's grand pitching O'Donnell's catching was. a noteworthy feature. The diminutive chap handled the veteran like a Klllefer. Charley Glendenping's timely hitting and Conroy's and Mulligan's excellent fielding all aided in the victory. Borquin hit the ball for Camdim City, while Bakey's grand fleldl'ig saved Rapp and Camden City from further humiliation. Glendening at short, too, played superbly. The next game will be played ut Third and Erie on Saturday next. The score: , CAMDEN CITY. r. h. Bakey, cf l i G.

The McFar-land-Gibbons fight was still the chief topic of conversation In sporting circles to-day and if anything was even a more popular theme than it was Saturday. The concensus of opinion was whole heart,edly that the Chicago man deserved the decision, although there was not much inclination to give Packey great gobs of credit because of his light- punching.- Few, however, questioned the -fact that Patikey landed two blows to Mike's one, light as they were. v Just as the concensus of opinion was that fackey won sport writers and critics were practically at one In the belief that Gibbons can attribute his defeat to making 147 pounds. Gibbons looked drawn in the ring: there wasn't an ounce of fat on him while McFar-land was sleek -and smooth. The fight Itself, taking it by and large, was unsatisfactory to the ma jority of the record-breaking crowd. Lack of a-real solid blow throughout the entire ten rounds and the frequent clinching found little favor with New York fans who have been educated o to the slashing style of mixing. Opinions of fighters themselves who witnessed the match were in favor of McFarJand. Abe Attell, former featherweight champion, thought McFar-land won, as did Jim Coffey, the Dublin Giant, and others. Willie Ritchie, American lightweight champion, thought it "was about a draw wfth the shade. If any, to McFarland." Gibbons left for his St. Paul home yesterday over 316.000 richer for his thirty minutes work. His share of the purse was 315,000 and added to that was $1,200 for moving picture rights. McFarland's take down was 317.500 for his work and about M.200 for the pictures. Tho JoIIvvvpIIs CLOVER TAKES FIRST IN WEST END SERIES e. 0 0 0 1 1 (V , I-Clover- Field Club and - West T5nt on 0!

To casual glance it looks Just about the same, as any other well-behaving automatic trap for throwing clay pigeons. It has the same graceful lines the same fine balance and innocent appearance. In response there is nothing to distinguish it from the average trap save for two little electric wires that lead from the trap-house back to the small batter' box at which the operator sits. For ihe Joker trap is sprung electrically. The mere press of a button sends it into actlnon. The "puller" and the lever which Is familiar to almost all trap-shooters Is eliminated. It is in action, however, that this unobstructive little equipment gets In its fine work. Once the button is pressed then it is time to beware, for never did more elusive or more difficult targets ever cleave the air. In flight they are much- swifter than the swiftest bird. Sharp angles are their middle names In fact, the variable courses they take through the air their sudden flips and turns are most disconcerting.

A man has to be a pretty good shot to stand anywhere near the lead in this greatest of all trapshootinK classics.' But there were very few few crack shots who were able to produce any startling results at tho Joker. A few of them," it is true, ran up some ,pretty fair scores, but as. a usual rule., the hits and misses wero more in favor of the latter. It' maV seem like exaggeration to say that six out of the ten targets was a pretty high score, but such was the cass. And only in orre or two rare exceptions . was this record exceeded. No! Gentle reader, we do not know where this Joker trap is made or wh sells It. It is practically a new one on ua But this one fact is certain we'd like to get one. It would be a fine thing to spring 'on some of our friends who ' sometimes "draw the - CAMDEN LOSES TO CRESCENT CRACKS In a sensational battle at Third and Erie streets the Crescent Athletic Club defeated Garrett Cowls' Camden base ball club, of North Camden, by the de cisive score of 5 to T.
