Chicago, July 26.-Some of these baseball writers, in trying to alibi tho clubs they follow for failures to do- j liver the goods, aro having a hard time keeping themselves straight. When tho White Sox were making a drive to the top certain scribes who should have more respect for the gamo on which they feed published suggestions that tho American league umpires were making it easy for Rowland's team. Those screeds hardly were cold when Babe Ruth had his iiiii-i;; with Umpire Owens, for which Presldont Johnson gavo him a ten-day suspension. Immediately some of the writers switched and began to criticize tho American league head for being too easy with Ruth and thus favoring the Boston club. Last week wo heard them singing a new song. This time it is the Yankees who are blessed with President Johnson/s "favor," because the head of tho league lifted a suspension put on Manager Bill Donovan and permit-tod him to take charge of Ills team in the series with tho Whlto Sox. Next, since Mr. Johnson has boon in St. Louis to straighten out a tangle there, wo may expect to hear that he is "making it easy" for the Browns to get out of the cellar. Isn't it peculiar that one person should bo accusing tho American league head of favoring the White Sox and that another should infer that ho is attempting to boost Boston, while still another would have us be "Ride 'cm straight up." It Isn't ofton that lady riders will make that boast, but two young women arrived in the city yesterday, and hearing that a stampede was coming off next month, they said they were here to stay until the big event was over, and declared that there was never anything raised on the Southern Alberta range that they couldn't ride to a finish. The young ladies in question are with a party of riders and there is nothing to it but "Lcth-bridgo or Bust" for thorn on August 15, 16 and 17 Tho Stampede committee is getting busy. They aro letting no grass grow under their feet. Yesterday afternoon they held a hurried meeting in the Alexandra hotel when the main business was the appointment on salary from now until the stampede Is over of Fred Karren and O. F. Urscn-bach, who will give their whole time to the affairs of tho big doings. They will open up an office in the downtown section where they will be available at all times of the day to all who have any business with tho stampede committee. A contract will shortly be awarded to a contractor for tho changes in tho grounds and the erection of corrals and chutes for tho stampede. Chutes will likely he erected immediately in front of each end of the grand stand so that all bucking horses will do their prettiest right in front of tho crowd and so close that the spectators will got a thrill. There will bo no need of field glasses to see the fancy bucking, bulldogging or any other of-tho wild west feats. Arrangements were made to make the first day of the stampede moving picture day when Roy B. Wheeler of Calgary will tako complete motion pictures of the stampede, the city, the prominent men of Magrath, Raymond and Lethbrldge, thus getting a good exhibit of pictures which will do much to advertise the district, the' stampede, the riders and put Lethbridgo on the map for the big joint fair and As the Old Boy Says : "What is more enjoyable 1 than a Promoter Blunt cigar Answer: "Three.

ALL NEW-FANGLED Rubs Sphere Until It Is White and Smooth and It Hops Effectively lievo tho same league head is trying I stampede which is billed for 1918. 8 0 and INTERNATIONAL First gamo-Newark 9, Tor6nto 7.

The best deduction to bo made is that Mr. Johnson is "helping" them all-that is, ho is strictly on the job of maintaining* his league as the best conducted organization in baseball. Doesn't Look Like "Favoritism" Several decisions recently at Com-iskey park certainly don't indicate that the umplrc3 aro tumbling over themselves to boost Comlskey to a (lag. Early In tho season Umpire Nal-lin set a procedent by permitting a player to score from third with the winning run against the White Sox on a balk when Ray Schalk held up his hand to stop the game, contend-1 Ing lio had a mote In his eye. Dan-! forth had started his pitch and stop-. ped at the top of his pitch. Nullin | said he had balked. This last week Umpire Billy Evans set another precedent when he allow-, Roger Peckinpnugh to score the winning run for the Yankees, although ho had been tagged.out by Schalk ho- i fore touching the homo plate. Peek-1 inpaugh hasn't touched homo yet. In i this lnstanco the runner came in a tilde ahead of the ball, but Schalk wbb on the lino for tho throw and ahead of the runner trying: to slide1 for tho bag. The ball fell from Schalk's hands and ho fell back over Peck. As the catcher sat. on the runner ho picked up tho ball In a flash and tagged his man, Urnplro Kvnns declared it wnB interference and permitted the run to score. It set a precedent, whatevor the merits of tho decision. Ray Knight is working hard to make the stampede events the best ever staged in the south and is there with a number of side bets that will bring out the best cowboy talent in the whole western country, on both sides of the line. Those-at yesterday's meeting were Ray Knight, Levi Harker, J. W. Kvans, Fred Karren, D. F. Fawns, W. Pussey, T. J. O'Brien, L. D. King and O. F. TJrsenbach. Since Russ Ford's famous emery ball that broke both ways has been taboo occasional report lias arisen of other freak deliveries that caused batsmen to worry. Cy Falkenberg is credited with being able to make a ball take queer movements by means of. the use of licorice, bnt it Is Cicotte's "shino ball" that is the big noise just now. I Cicotte's now stunt, which is technically O.K., having already been ruled on by Ban Johnson, is merely an adaptation of tho spitter. The "shine" effect is secured by means of rubbing the ball on a wet spot on the shirt front. With a smooth spaco and a rough space adjoining, he Is enabled to get a stronger grip on the ono side of the hall than the other, a (juoer jump being thus given the ball when it is thrown, while the sphere is also given a disconcerting and streaky appearance in passage. Whatevor may ho said of Cicotte's now delivery it is indeed effective, for, with its assistance, the veteran, who is. next to Eddie Plank, the oldest pitcher in the league, is enjoying his best season ever. Ho has pitched j in nine victories, four of which have been shut-outs and one a non-hit affair Those who have watched his work declare that he has more speed than ever and bettor control. Certainly he has shown remarkable consistency along with brilliancy, and If indications aro prophetic ho should be one of the best performers in the entire big ring this year. Umpire Bill EvanB is a keen critic of the line points of the game, and he has made a study of Cicotte's now delivery. He says that it is worked on exactly the opposito principle from i__ tho emery ball, and describes Its operation and effect as follows; "Clcotte is working on a theory exactly opposite to the emery ball," explains Evans. "He wets a spot on his uniform, and on this he rubs a ball until one side is very white and smooth. The other is rough and soiled. With the ball properly smoothed and polished he gets more of a grip on one side than on the other, and the ball acts exactly as the emery ball acted. "Then, again, the effectiveness of this delivery Is Increased by the white and dark spots on the ball. There is something of an optical illusion when the bright spot Is turning all the time as It goes to the batsman. But there Is nothing illegal about the delivery." E I Says He Was Surprised When Manager Threw Towel Into the Ring Philadelphia, July 27.-Johnny Kll banc denies his defeat by Benny Leon ard will cause him to retire from the lighting game. He acknowledged Leonard's superiority, but declared Manager Jimmy Dunn had acted has- tily in throwing the towel in the third round. "I was one of the most surprised persons in the world," he Mid, when I learned I was the victim ot a knockout. My brain was clear and I was strong. Jimmy Dunn evidently thought I was through when he saw me slip to my knee, and later tossed the towel into the ring. I wondered why he did It." Kllbane would say nothing about a return fight. NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED.
