Washington, Aug. 23.-After another day's debate, embittered by charges that those desiring to make the war unpopular and embarrass tho administration were behind the movement greatly to increase tax rates In the war tax bill, the senate late today rejected, 58 to 21, Senator Lafollette's amendment to raise $687,784,000 from individuals' incomes Instead of $490,-164,000 as proposed in the bill. SEEKS WILLARD'S MA8TER Jones Says Any Big, Strong, Young Man Has a Chance. BATTLE BETWEEN SOX TEAM8 Any big strong young man with a heart and a head has a chance to beat Willard, if Jess can be induced to fight again. These are the sentiments of Tom Jones, until recently one of Willard's managers. And Tom has started on a gum shoe trip to try to dig up the man to win the world's heavyweight championship, according to advices from the west. In a recent intervlow Jones is quoted as having said: "I'm not discounting Willard In the least. He is tho most wonderful fighter In the world. I'm inclined to think he is the greatest heavyweight in mechanical skill and endurance that ever existed. He doesn't realize how good he is himself. But they can all be beaten sooner or later, and my ambi- Will Be Because Ban Johnson Wasn't on Job "As I size up the situation, the,-------- ... -----,--- battle for the pennant in the Amerl- tion now is to find the man can league is between the Chicago! "Fighters can \*s developed," White Sox and the Boston Red Sox," said Hughey Jennings, manager of the Detroit Tigers, when pressed for his views on the race. "These two teams stand out as the strongest in the league at this time,, and I see no reason why either of them should crack. They are well balanced baseball machines, and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if the race between them were undecided until the last few days of the campaign. The recent series between the teams gave me an idea of Just how evenly matched the two clubs are. If Eddie CoHfns and Joe Jackson And their real batting stride in the Immediate future it may be the deciding factor in favor of the White Sox. Neither of theso two normally .300 hitters is batting better than .275 at this time. This makes a big difference to any team." GOOD 8HOOTING BY FRANK H. MORRIS Frank H. Morris, Dominion Cartridge company professional, who makes his headquarters at Edmonton, is making his presence felt at the eastern tournaments which be is now attending, and his shooting waB the feature of the Dominion Qame Protective and Trapshooterg' - association tournament, held at Sandwich, Ontario, August 13 to 16 inclusive. ' There were 65 amateurs and 10 professionals competing and Mr. Morris was high run, not only from the 16 yard mark, but at every distance up to 22 yards. He made long runs of 50, 54 and 98, the last effort being the longest run compiled during the tournament. Mr. Morris will compete at\ the Toronto exhibition shoot before returning to Edmonton. The following are his scores at Sandwich: Distance Targets 16 yards ......... 400 18 yards ____..... 150' 20 yards ......... 125 22 yards ......... 25 Totals Y00 Broke 385 142 113 23 *63 said Tom. ."Willard isn't a natural fighter. Ho bates to fight. He hasn't enough confidence or initiative himself, but he Is the wonder of the ring. If he could be developed another big fellow can be. The puzzle is to find somebody as big and strong as Jess. It will bo strength against strength. If I could come close to a tie on this proposition all I'd ask would be a fighting disposition. Jess hasn't that. A fighting disposition is the one thing likely to beat him. "Anybody who thinks his fighting days ore over or that he can't train is wrong. He can if he wants to, but he doesn't want to. The fighting public has made him a fortune. He is worth half a million. He hasn't given them the privilege of seeing him fight a real fight since the Johnson battle. He has turned down fabulous offers. He doesn't need to fight If he doein't want to, but he rausf get into the ring sooner or later or lose his value an attraction." WHEN AGED SCULLERS MEET James E. Ten Eyck, veteran coach of the Syracuse university rowing crews, has accepted a challenge from James Riley, former world's champion sculler, for a three mile rowing race on Lake Lonely, Saratoga, in September. There will be a side bet of $1,000 on the race. Riley is 71, while Ien Eyck Is 75. Seven years ago Ten Eyck defeated Riley over the same course by 16 lengths in a three mile race. It was predicted that neither could stand the strain, but both veterans finished strong. Ton Byck's time was 23:13; Riley's 23:03. Cleveland, Aug. 23.-If the White Sox win the pennant it will be because Ban Johnson will not rule out the delivery of Eddfo Cicotte and Dave Danforth. That is the settled conviction of Manager Lee Fohl and Tris Speaker of the Indians, expressed in a recent fanning bee in the Cleveland club's office. No team in the league has protested against Danforth and Cicotte more than the Indians have this year, and Speaker in a burst of fervid oratory insisted that the continuance of Bhlne balls and sail balls would break up the game. He drew a pathetic picture of the poor, hard-working major leaguers being sent back to the forge and tho woodpile because their earnings were menaced by this delivery. "The game will go to the dogs," quoth Tris, "unless a stop is put to ! tho doctoring of the ball by Cicotte j j and Danforth. Don't tell mo that CI-I cotte^ close to the forties, can handle 1 j a regular ball in a regular way and I ring up the victories he has this year. And there is Danforth. I faced him in Chicago and didn't get a respect-, able foul off of him." | "Yes, and you met him hero and j got four hits in a row," someone sug-j gested. "Well, that was something else agaliH but the delivery Is irregular and ; must be stopped,or the game will be ruined, continued Spoke. "A lot of ball players will be looking for their bread and butter In some other line it the delivery Isn't ruled out. If the Sox win that is what will give them tho pennant." In the meantime Lee Fohl was digging into the secretary's idesk for exhibit A In the form of a ball, which hopscotched into the Indian's dugout while Danforth was twirling. Look at this," pointed Lee with triumph, as he exhibited a pill the �earns on one side, of which were encrusted with some waxy substance which the manager claimed had raised the threads about one-thirty-second of an Inch higher than the normal surface. Some with their own eyes, others With the aid of specs, took a squint at the .pill, and one observer allowed that perhaps the raise of the seam might be an optical illusion. "Sure," said Fohl, "but the ball lias dried out by this time and that Is the reason Ban Johnson never has discovered the ridge. When it is wet first the threads rise instantly and the ball goes on its uncanny way to the plate. The discoloration naturally aids it. Didn't Nallin throw out new balls to Dauforth yesterday- Did the pitcher have them an Instant before they were spotted? He did not. They looked like Joseph's cat when they reappeared." Taken with other protests along the circuit. It is a cinch that tho Sox will have to beat seven teams all laying for their scalps. For some reason every club Is putting forth frantic efforts to beat Rowland's crew. It they can harass the team by protesting every pitched ball it will be done, It look* like * grao.d tlulsh.
