Thp lo of Jake IJeckley to '.llr'Amcrlcan leauc next ear would not only be de-lnred over the National League circuit, lmt would leave a bis R3p In the already l"plettd ranks of the Red". It li roBarded r alwo't certain that the American League will place teams In PittburR and St. IavVs, find the tatement i made on gcod authority that ISeckley will captain the team In the Smoky City. It l known that Beckley can Ket a Rood lerth in the American Ivajrue, but "whether he will deert the National, with which he his been o long Identified, is Feriouslv questioned. It Is claimed that Eeckley has Ji-actlcall decided to go to one of the American I.caeuo teams, but Jake himself la noncommital on the subject. Beckley is a larf,e part of the Cincinnati team. He vies with Sam Crawford for the batting honor, and n a first baseman ranks hiRh He la a favorite all over the National Leacue circuit because of his ea"y-go!ng w a vi Ueckley delights In chaff and rarely ever loses his head, but he has a most exas-peratirg way of "Joshing" an opposing team, especially when the Reds have the upper hand. Although King "Hid" McPhes ostensibly manages the Cincinnati team from the bench. Ileckley is the life of the Iteds in the field. He Is a "hoodoo" to the Ilttburg Pirates. On more than one occasion he has materially Interfered with a Pittsburg victory, and so often has he done thin tluit it Ls a subject of general comment wherever the Iteds meet the Pirates.

BROOKLYN SS MAKING A STRONG BID FOR PENNANT. I Ilanlonites. After I'.issing Caidinals, Still Further Increase Their Lead and Are Kjqiectcd to 'rod the I'imtes I!efm Long Eastern Trip of Western Clubs .May TpM't Some Cal- t illations Doiioian Is Looking for a Xew Twiilcr. The lat week in the baseball world was markrd bv the drop of the Cirdlnals t fot-rth plaie In the after the pennant mid the rapid strides which It.-ocklvn has been making toward the top. Two or three vve-ks ago the Hanlonitcs were llgured to end no higher than fouith. or polbly third plac. but the Hanlonitcs fatteneil their percentage at the expen-e of Phil idelphia and New York, and will give the I'ltlsuurs club a run for the money. The Pirates maintaired their high stand ing at the co-t of three game to the Dono- v. mites, and the latter are till on the backward patch. A few games In the, J-ow-ever, are expected to wrrk n ch inge all round. Pittsburg will go up against its nearest rivals for first-rlice honors. The Pirates will have to light hard to put a quletiib on Ilrooklvn. St. I.OU1S furnt-hes a good road team. The sterling work done in the long trip Kast in the earlier ptrt of the season was riS"n-r-ible for tre high stardlns or the Cardinals, and there Is no good rea-on why the trick cannot be turned again. l!rook! n and Philadelphia, however, are much stronger organizations than they were a month ago, and the going will net be easy for the locals. If the team succeed In taking Its share of the games on the present trip the chances should be good for a return to third place before the Kastern tour Is brought to an end. Followins Is the schedule for the week: St. Louis at Pittsburg Augun 23. 27 and 3. Cincinnati at St. Louis August 30 and 31. Cincinnati crawled Into sixth place last week, not bv anv extra effort on the part of the club, but becau'e of the Giants accelerating slump. The New Torkers seem to be In a bad way. Sam Strarg was relegated to the bench for a brief season and Hickman was alco taken out of the feld and tried out once In the box with poor success,. Murphy, who was seen hire with Boston, has betn turned over to the Gothamltes and given regular work at tecond base. "I have been watching the work of the men who Jumped the Ueds this J tar," savs Magnate Ilrush of Cincinnati, "and I note that none of thf m are doing as well as they did with us Iat jear. Jlnrny Harrett's bat ting for Detrolts has not been up to the pace he set last seaon. nnJ I understand that he Is not plavlng as brilliantly in the field as he did for us. Kd Scott, whom we offerej as much money as Cleveland paid him, now Is drifting about from place to place, his arm Is In bad shape from the lake breezes and no reward from the American League for deserting u. Phil Oiler has been turned adrift twice this season, and he Is drawing a smaller salary than we were paying him last jear. Italph Sevbold Is not setting the world on fire In Philadelphia. In fact, of the entire lot that Jumped the Iteds before the season opened. Hoke Ferris, with the Boston Americans, seems to be the only man who Is playing up to expectations. No doubt the destriers have regretted ere this the ill-advised step they took In Jumping Cincinnati." Manager Donovan H reported to bo on a still hunt for a left-handed pitcher. Certain It Is that the Cardinals are In need of another twlrler. Now that Wicker has gone. It would seem that thero Is room for nnother pitcher, not on the bench, but In the game. SudholT. Harper. Powell and Murphy have been doing all the work right along, so Wicker will not be much mled. Hut another pitcher who can take his turn regularly would give these slabmen a chance to rest up once In a while. No team can be expected to play winning bail behind a set of pitchers who are handicapped by sore arms and extra work. Careful figuring can hardlv place the Cardinal to clou the season ahad of second place. A week ago the chance for first-place honors, though slim, was possible, but the big gap torn In the local team's standing by Chicago and Pittsburg places the Cardinal out In th cold. Nothing less than a greased-plank stunt by Pittsburg and Ilrooklvn will give the locals a right of the bunting. Some time In the near future a meeting ef the Ilaseball Players- Protective Association Is scheduled to take place. The meeting will likely be held when the Western teams go East In September. A number of important questions are up for consideration, among them the suhjeet of contract Jumpers. Some sort of discipline will likely be dealt out by the organization to the "Jumpers'' If certain Influential members of the pilfers' union have their way. Another question, and one which Is a vital one to the plajers, Is the maintenance of good salaries. Pome measures may be taken to keep up the present high wages of the plajers. The outlook for good money Is proml-lng, ns ,i sinrp Hunt for pl.ivers will be waged between the two rival big lt-ague, and the plajers v.iil 1.6. i,y the competition. With the fighting for plavis that took place between the two org inlzitions at the beginning of the present STon, salaries were Increased, with the result that some of the clubs found tlum-elves hard prcs.,i t0 i10id their pl.ivers. It Is likely that an effort win lie win,. !. iii..ii.sil of ficials to cut down tro prertnt figures, nr.d some ort of action will be taken by the plavirs to prevent such ,i movement. The Philadelphia North American savs that Connie Alack Is nfttr some of the Mel-lar lights on the Phil idelphia Nationals. I'ltchtr Townsend Is riorted to hive received an offer of doable the silary Rogers Is now- pa lug him. To be sure. Town-end h a j oungster In the net of breaking out of his i-hell. but he gives promie cf vnlue and the Americans are willing to take a chance on the future and put up cash on the risk. IJuggleby has been dallied with along with the rest. The members of the Cincinnati tenm are a unit In declaring tint there Is ns man It the National League to-dav as fast on his feet as Hilly Fox. the Reds' second "In a straightawaj run," said Dick Harley. "Fox easily can distance any man drawing ulary In baseball to-day. Just at present this speed Is not utilized to the best advantage by him. for the reason that he has not learned to get a quick start, such as Is required In baseball. When he learns to start a steal on the motion of a pitcher nnd gets away at the crack of the bat In fielding a ball, he will be a revelation In baterunnlng rnd tleldirg. 'There is no doubt that h w III acquire ex-pertness. In both these lines, nven In the short time he has lieen with us he has Improved wonderfully In both lines of work, and he Is getting better every day. Fox was a chnrapion sprinter among the Eastern colleges before he became a professional baseball plater, and he has established quite a number of college records In his time. Despite his slight build, he has great endurance, and there. 1 MO reason why he should not develop Into a star In his position If he continues to nbsorb knowledge ns he has in the past few weeks." Cincinnati Tlmes-Star. Father Henry Chad wick. In his weekly letter to the Sporting News, tells the follow -lng story on "Willie" Kceler: "Willi- Keeler sa he has lots of letters nt him asking how to bat well. One writer said: '.Mr. William' Keeler: Dear Sir Have vou any treatise on the art of batting written bv jourelf? If so. pleaso Inform me where I can obtain such nnd the price thereof. I Inclose stamp for reply.' "On reading out to a scribe, Keeler said: I've already written that treatise, and it reads like thls-kecp otir eve clear and hit em where they ain't. That's all.- " 'To show how strcng the bids for plajers were at the leginnlng of last season when li nnr tietneen thf tWO big leagues was on. and ns Indicative of what mnv be expected If the National and American League clubs bid up the price of plavers this winter. W. L. Mcllwaln of the Pittsburg Dispatch refers to the case of Has Wagner. At the beglnnirg of the season Wagner was offered Jll.tTO for a thrce-vear contract with the American LengHe. At first lie wasjo be given part of this sum In American League stock, but, when he refused, the American Ix-ague iopl agreed to deposit the full amount In a Pittsburg bank. W ag-ner continued to refuse and stuck to tre Pirates. As jet he has no reason lo be scrrj" for his decision. George Mullln of the Fort V nyne team of the Western League Is sail to have made a dicker with the Hoston American league team for next yenr. Mullln had offers from three oth-r American league teams, but the bait thrown out bv Hoston was the most tempting. Mullln first attained prominence In the bnseball world when a pitcher on the Wabah team of the "Three-Lje league In 110. BIllnllT IIITLOOK KOll FOOrBM.L.

Thus far this season Orth has won sixteen games and lost eight, a percentage of .6C0. The St. Louis. New York. Hoston and Cincinnati teams have suffered hut-out at Orth's hands. The Ueaneaters have been blanked thrice by this twlrler, and Cincinnati failed to score In two games when Orth was on the slab for Philadelphia.

Coursing men on the Western plains nre grcatlj- Interested In the running of the American Waterloo, which will be held In this city In October. They regard this stake as the greatest srejheund event of the year, and undoubtedly the meeting this fall will be one of the greatest coursing events ever held In America. Judge John Grace Is coming from San Francisco to oITlcIate in the saddle, and this alone should Insure the success of the meet. The stake will be run at Pastime Park, on a greatly Improved course, and the sport should prove very attractive. A leading Han Francisco paper, speaking of the event, says: "The American Waterloo will be held In St. Louis on October 5 and 6, and the American Derby a week later, but Judge Grace will stop for the Waterloo only, as he w 111 hav e to get back here to Judge the John Grace Cup. The Derby Is a produce stake for whelps of 1300. Still later will be held the Mississippi Futurity, which compares with the local Futurity." "Jim Sweeney will go East to hand'e the hounds belonglrg to Sam Hardy of Minneapolis. J. H. itosseter will send four hounds to make the affair of national Importance, and For Freedom Is likely to be among the number. E. M.

However, nothing but prellmlnarj work tan be deno before the first of October on account of the torrid weather. Judging from pre-season prospects delusive guides at best the coming season should produce the best pigskin sport ever before wltnes-ed in &t. Louis. The colleges and preparatory schools in the neighborhood are making big advances in athletic llres. and. an even the great unen-thulastlc St. Louis public H waking up to the pleasures of outdoor s(orf. the next venr should withers a great revival In all branches of amatiur athletics. Hut right here. In connection with football, it must lie vi Id that two things are necessary for the full succeys. of th game. First, frcm the sp.'ctator's point of view, as well as from that of tha plaje-rs. all fondil'm and "bruiser" tactics must be absolutely barred.
