GIANTS' PITCHING STAFF LOOKS GOOD Three Pitchers on the String Who Are Ready-Some Infield Changes Efforts are being made to get together a lineup for tomorrow night's game with Warner that will give the fans a run for their money. After Saturday's big game there is sure to be a bumper crowd, and the locals are out to win. Just who will pitch the game is not certain as yet. It looks as if ft would bo either Snow, Halverson or Rut-ledge. Tho latter is a husky gentleman from' Barons who came in to practice tho other night and wants to perform hero. Both he and Halverson showed up well in the workout, and will be given a chance to pitch at an early date. With Cosgriff out �f the city, the infield will have to be switched. An effort will be made to get Eddie Lem-ieux to play the shortfleld. He is one of the best in the business and if he can be induced to play, the infield will be composed of Livingston, Isom, Lemieux and Walsh. The outfield will be Green, Dunsworth and Evans un-SchliPP Looks Best Of Bunch lless something turns up. However, But All Are Twirling Good Ball ASSOCIATION Columbus 4; Kansas City 0.

SPORT NOTES ^ "Mack" Wheat, brother of "Zack" Wheat, has been recalled by the Brooklyn Dodgers from the Bingham-ton clulr- of the New York State league. Bill Rarlden, of 'the Giants, who punched the Cincinnati groundkeeper durlng%the McGraw-Byron fracas, has written a letter of apology, saying that he made a mistake. "Ham" Hyatt, former' member of the Pittsburg Pirates, now with the Chattanooga club, continues to lead the hitters of the Southern Association with a mark of .349. Quite a load has been Knitted from the minds of American leaguers The Rod Sox have failed to make a runaway race for the pennant. Evidently Harry Wolter couldn't tand the pace as a Cub regular, He has been released to the pinch-hitting tquad. Young Mr. Eller, of the Reds, looks to be about the brightest snot in Matty's pitching staff right now. With hardly a chance to become a regular pitcher. Scoit Porry has cut tho Boston Braves and joined a Chicago Koml-pro. team. Jimmy McAloor, the former American league manager, has beon appointed a membor of tho conscription board of Mahoning county, Ohio. The New York Giants In their drive for the pennant are fortified with the strongest pitching staff in the league. No combination of twirlers in the American has anything on the Now York boxmen either. Of the 12 leading pitchers in their own league the Giants have four-Schupp, Tesreau, Benton and Perrltt. This group, with, Sallee, Anderson and Middleton in reserve, have put up such a formidable defense that opposing batters have been safely checked. Schupp Is the kingpin of the Giants' pitchers. He is gradually tilling the vacancy left by Matty In the esteem of the fans. Schupp, a very heady, calculating young man, has an exceptional assortment of both curves and speed. He's been In the league long enough now to thoroughly know all the traits of rival batters, knowledge which is essential to all successful twirlers. This season Schupp has played In 15 games. He won 10, lost two, and went to the rescue in three others. 8chupp has yielded 78 hits. Right behind Schupp come Tesreau and Benton, Big Jeff, who soldom reaches his best form until the burning hot weather, has surprised everyone this year by his unusual work. Tesreau competed in 14 games, won seven and lost two. Benton, too, has-been a rather as-expected prop of strength in the box. The Rube exercised In 12 battles and has six victories to his credit. In the days following Matty's de cline the Giants' pitching force began to go to seed. For two seasons there was a constant reorganization of the staff. Pitchers were exchanged, bought outright or received in trades with other -players.. Youngsters like Schupp were receiving their bench education, and during the process of development the' Qlants naturally didn't capture any pennants. Now there's no longer need for any more experimenting, The club has at least five dependable slabmen. Tns Giants are eecurely perched nt the leading position in the league light, which gives tho best possible answer, to the efficiency of the club's pitching department. there are other players to fill in Hie different positions very acceptably. Murphy and Schweitzer are ready to do duty in the outfield. A new in-fielder showed up at practice last night. So the outlook is good. Warner is coming up with the strongest team along tho lino under tho direction of "Hap" Berg, and that is enough to onsure a good game from their end. The game will start at 6.15. BOB STEELE IS JINX FOR REDS Former Cardinal Pitcher Appears to Have Cincinnati's Number From all appearance Bob Steele, recently acquired by the Pittsburg Pirates from the St. Louis Cardinals, like Alexander and Watson, seemB to have the number of the Cincinnati Reds. In other words, he is somewhat of a hoodoo or a jinx to the (By Ringside) Chicago, July 25.-Fur will fly Wednesday night when Johnny Kil-bane, the featherweight king, stakes his ring career at Philadelphia against the lightweight title held by Benny Leonard. Probably not In the history of the American ring have two lightweights ever been matched against each other who possessed the class of Johnny Kilbane and Benny Leonard. As there will be scarcely four pounds difference in their woight on the night of the contest, they will virtually start equal, as Kiibane enjoys an advantage of one inch in height, I with a corresponding advantage in i reach. This, coupled with his ring! experience and hitting powers, may ! be considered almost sufficient to bal- j ance the difference in weight. ] Leonard was born April 7, 1S9G, and in consequence is 21 years old, while Kilbane is also an April progeny, arriving on tHe 18th day of that month in 1889, so he must confess to 28 years. The former is 5 feet 5 inches in height and tho latter one inch taller. Have Legion of Admirers The moment the match was consummated and all the details arranged the sportsmen of A,rnerlca began to take sides. Each boxer has a legion of admirers. Each has won his distinction in a fair and square manner, outclassing each opponent in his respective class. Each can hit a knockout blow. Each has many decisive victories to his credit. So it is no wonder that when this match 'was made the tongues of ring followers began to wag. When the writer suggests that not within his knowledge have two men with the peculiar assets of Kilbane and Leonard ever faced each other in the lightweight class, he fears no contradiction. You can go back to Mc-Auliffe and ramsack the pages of ring history and you will not find two men who possessed the same attributes as tho duo who are to clash at Shibo park. Leonard Aggressive Boxer Leonard is an aggressive boxer. In fact, he is a combination of the boxer and lighter, relentless when he gets an opponent going, and he never has been known to "back up" under fire. Ho is what is termed a good two-handed boxer, can hit a knockout blow j with either hand is a splendid blocker, timing his parries and counters to a nicety. Just what he can do on tho defense when facing a skilled opponent will be discovered tomorrow. In Kilbane, America has a featherweight whosa equal has not lived *i. _ ----- CIGARS "Made for those who want the best." NOW SOLD IN THREE SIZES > Superiores- 2 Invlncibles- for Coronas- 25c. 8. DAVIS j lightweights. Gibbons, out of classy mlddlewoights, is forced to jti3t sit around, for there really are few light heavies who look attractivo when compared to Mike. Mike's inaction, however, Is far from .pleasing to tho fistic public. Although recognizing the fact that Gib-bonB stands out over the many would-be rivals, the fans would liko to see the St. Paul ghost take ono more fling at the top-notchers. Jimmy Clabby i3 ctill far from being classed among the has-beens and Jeff Smith insists he can and always could whip Mike. However, the most insistent cries for attention from Gibbons are coming just now from Soldier Bartfteld, Ted Lewis and Mike O'Dowd. Lewis, a welterweight, has given Gibbons one tough argument, and Bartfleld holds a newspaper decision over the man generally recognized as tho king ol the middleweights. O'Dowd is a graduate of the Gibbons school and is recognized as one of tho best men the welterweight division has seen in many days. For just a few minutes during the second game of a recent double header between the Giants and Reds did Hal Chase, premier first sacker of them all, cut loose. Suddenly dropping the nonchalant manner that marks his usual activities on the ball field, Hal showed a flash of his real speed, and that flash served to bewilder the Giants and to illustrate to the fans that tho one-timo hilltop idol is still a wonderful player. j Hal chose the eighth inning in 1 which to add a touch of the dramtic 1 to the pastime. Two men were out and Heinle Groh was on second when Hal went to bat. Poll Perritt had a count of two and two on him when he delivered a ball that was quite high and on the inside. Hal suddenly swung nt It and sent the pellet whistling into centre field for a clean hit that scored Groh., That, hewever, was only the beginning. Figuring that Chase would make no attempt to get' any further than first base on the blow and realizing that he had no chance to nail Groh at the plate, Benny Kauff fielded the ball without undue haste and tossed it leisurely in Charley" Herzog's direction. But Hal had figured on getting more than one base on the hit and, rounding the initial sack, he raced for second and slid headfirst under Her-zog and into tho bag a fraction of a second ahead of Kauff's throw. Jumping to his feet, Hal stood on the bag dusting himself off, but as Perritt delivered the ball to Griffith, who was nt the bat, he tore for third. Rarlden made a quick peg to Zimmerman, but Chase, with another headlong dive, slid to safety as Zlm sought to put tho ball on him. By that time the entire Giant infield was up In the air, while the fans shrieked with delight at Hal's splendid work. Chase dashed half way to the plate as Perritt shot the next ball up to Griffith and probably would have stolen home had Tommy not scratched a hit between Zimmerman and Fletcher. Previous to his remarkable exhibition in the eighth Chase had made a single and a double and had played n fine fielding game, but it was not until the eighth that he really let himself out and showed what he could do if he tried. Hal failed to get a bit in the first encounter, but his fielding in that game was also perfect. BIG LOAN8 FROM U. S.
