Instead of Eight Ohio, Oct.. have nothing was the way a request for an .regar-diiig' the- manner: iii ;which_ 'he made eight at SC Louis...... Hetore he "was" however, the unofficial leader of the American league batters claimed that he not only secured eight hits in an abso- lutely genuine manner >but that he really -deserved nine hits. When ask- ed, to explain this last statement, he answered: "Tnat's all I have to say on the sub- Ject" information was conveyed to Lajoie Curing-the- interview that Frank Na- vin, president of the Detroit club, had said that his feat at St. Louis looked- suspicious. "So it looked suspicious to Navin, Gid said Lajoie. "Well he knows what he can do. He can take it be- fore tne league-if he wants to, an-d at tnat time I certainty will have my say. Until that time I can only ear I not only got eight hits in a regular manner, but that I should be credited with nine. That's all I have to say." JACK JOHNSON MAY FIGHT SAM LANGFORD IN EUROPE NAUGHTON THINKS MclNTOSH WILL TRY TO PUT BATTLE ON IN TALK OF AGAIN MEETING CHAM- PION IS PURE BUNK By W. W. Naughton San Francisco, Oct. with in currency clutched in his ;ood right hand, and daring Sam Langford to post a forfeit for a 000 bet, is Jack Jphnson has come to talking fight since the late unpleasantness at Reno. It seems to suggest that Johnson's thoughts are turning to the ring again and it indicates that he is coming to recognize that Langford is. the man the public wishes him to meet. There will-be all manner of hitches, no doubt, before Johnson and Lang- ford finally attach their names to a binding contract. They are the only two heavies at present in commission who are regarded as natural rivals; and they have upbraided each other to such an extent that a backdown by Jack or -Sam would come with, very bad grace. Hugh Mclntosh, of Australia, is after the match, and it looks as if-he will be the one to land it." The situation in this country at present is not of the kind to warrant-any American pro inoter to angle for championship at- tractions. Strong opposition to the game of the ring developed in many quarters during the preparation's for the Jeffries-Johnson fight, and the re- sult of that counter caused a feeling of disgust to prejudice the publilc mind. It might have been different if the white man had but as. it was there was nothing abo.ut the sage- brush affair-to leave a pleasant taste in the mouth of the average Ian. As a consequence, no spor-ting man whose interest in pugilism is confined to 'the. spectacular phase of the business, cared a rap what became of fisticuffs; There will be a reaction, of course, Absence "makes the "heart grow fonder, and the absence of-the Quseasberry sport will, after >a lapse cause a general "longing may.' result' in a. pressure the. good "Thei '.fact re- conditions will, de- ter any. match handler on. this neck of the woods from bidding for the; John- son-Langford contest. When .Johnson and Langford were in the throes of! their recent discussion Johnsqn rather sagely remarked that, contests between colored men do not draw in the same proportion as all- white, or even magpie bouts. Thai ,was one of his reasons for demanding a side bet of Johnson knows what, he is talking about, and he knows further that, all things considered, Alc- Intosh's offer of is a1 liberal one. The purse that Mclntosh is willilng to give is a much larger sum than tho affair would be worth to anyone who might entertain the idea of staging the contest in this country. In Eng- land, Mclntosh would probably get back" his for there is no partic- ular aversion to the colored, brethren of the bruising world in King George's realm. In- Australia it might be different, and then, again, it might not., Austral- ians to a man pulled hard for Jeffries to beat Johnson. The Australian is a thorough sport, however, and with Langford and John- son striving for supremacy, and a con- sequent absence of sentiment in re- gard to the outcome, the Australian might come to regard the affair from a purely sporting standpoint, and roll up in large numbers to see the two greatest heavy weights of the times in action. Wherever the catch goes, how- ever, it looks as if Mclntosh has the best chance of securing it. Stanley Ketchell lias announced his marvellously quick recovery from the nervous breakdown from which he suf- fered. If fee is quoted correctly he is anxious to take another whack at Johnson. Such talk as that is to be; deprecat- ed, and the wonder is that Ket'chell has the hardihood to express himself along such lines.. That other Ketchell- Johnson affair still stinks to heaven. Judging from the way Ketchell whim pered like .a hysterical school-girl while waiting for the gong which start- ed the men -on their thoroughly ro- the prospect of meet ing Johnson, even in 'a pre-arranged bout, particulalr, charm No than KetcheJJ that 'Johnson dominates him. as a hus- ky schoollmaster dominates" the small- sized pupils. There is plenty of work for Ketc'hell's hands "to 'do if his thoughts are attuned to milling, but as far as Johnson's name is concerned; it would be well for the "Michigan Assas- sin" to let the dead past bury its dead. TROUBLE BREWING HITS V' Chicago, "Oct. Trouble is in view, over the. settlement of the title of heavy- hiuer of the 'season and the owner of the au- tomobile accompanying the hon- or. President Ban Johnson has started an investigation into thcj matter of Sunday's game at St. when Lajoie was credited with eight hits and which it has been generally presumed had cinched for him the title and motor. NEWLY PROPOSED LACROSSE RULES NOT FINDING FAVOR SPALDING PflAISES CHANCE AND THE CUBS Chicago, Oct. G. Spalding, candidate for United States senaton from California and manager of the first team that ever won -a national V league baseball pennant for Chicago, called at Cub headquarters to person- ally congratulate Frank Chance, man- ager of the National League pennant winners. The gray haired veteran was introduced to the peerless leader and warmly praised him on. cess in bringing his great, team back to the front. "You can be elected governor of California when, you go was the way the senatorial aspirant greet- ed Chance. "You are a native son, and I am only an adopted one. Every- where I have been I find the state proud of your success. It is a great honor to win four national league pen- nants. "They are 'trying to make a politi- cian out of men out there. They ex- pect me to r.un for the senatorship. and I declined. The declination was not accepted, and finally I was draftecl into the game. Once in it I of course, as anxious to win as I ever was to win a baseball game. The spir- it is the same. I won my first game in the primaries, 70. to 60, which sounds like an old-time baseball score., doesn't Mr. Spalding was greatly surprised and delighted by a gift from President Murphy. It was a baseball which Mr. Spalding himself had" pitched in. a ;ame 40 years ago. FEARED LAJOIE'S TERRIFIC DRIVES "The Right'. Clothes for Real Men are shown in the new -Semi-ready Fall Styles.

Herr-( tne official averages of .both nnitk-r with all the solemnity of circus perhaps a. word or two might not go amiss. the first place baseball rules for. any part of thrin can never, be fated to lacrosse, because conditions'-- are entirely different.

The average salary paid is about S2u a week for four months in the year. And a nian has brains enough tp play lacrosse won't become a slave Tor that amount of money. Players Not Held Down "Anyway, the N. L.
