Tbe French players have' not' hesitated
to cross the channel and meet with the
English players In the tournaments of
Oreat Britain. One of thw French play

When he played In England, it was hla
first appearance on grass courts,' and
naturally that was something of a handi

Oobert Although thy did not win, their
game Was highly commended by the Eng

In the single Oobert beat Gore, a ster

beaten .by, Dixon. In tha doubles Lu

One of tha peculiarities of Laurentz'a
play is that in eerving the hall he turns
squarely away from the net with a pe
culiar swing of his body. ,s Yet the wervlce
was quite successful and by no means
easy to return. . - -
It ia said that OObaft -ind LaurenU

Fans Still Have
Faith in Rourkes
Not all of , the i fans in ' Omaha have
given up hopes of the" Rourkes winning
the 1913 pennant, ' and. some are' evert so
cocksure of the rag being landed by the
local boys that they have begun to talk
of' bringing th team back to Omaha
after the season la cloned in 'St. 'Joeaph
and treating them to a big banquet.
This proportion was brought , up by a
targe number of fans who were watching
the scores of th Rourkes and Des Moines
In front of bas ball headquarter.
Brother Dav was standing in the back
ground listening to tho chatter with his
face swathed .in grins. . Beta are being

NEW YORK. Aug, .-John J. McGraw,
Frank Chance and Fred Clarke are the
three sturdy musketeers of the National
Fred Clarke is the veteran of the trio
and holds the record of pennant achieve
ment Since 1901 his club has never fin
ished below the first division, and in that
time the Buccaneers have annexed four
flags and one world's pennant Pittsburg
won three gonfalons In a row, beginning
ID 1901. - . ,
Then New York broke in for two suc
cesses in 1904 and iy06.. McOraw, a new
comer in the National league, had begun
to make his presence felt. But hla old
team crumpled up after their second
straight victory in 1905. Then came Mr.
Frank Chance, the peerless leader and
present thorn in the aide of Manager
John J. McGraw of Gotham.
, Chance butted into the limelight in 1908
with a record of U victories for the sea
son. The peerless loader fell down on the
Job In 1909, losing to Pittsburg, which in
turn cheated the Detroit Tigers out of
their third straight hid for a world'a
championship, th Cubs having turned
the trlok In 1907 and 190i ,
McGraw, who has always been there
or thereabouts, was quite peeved by thla
time. He had been knocking about for a
team of young bloods. It made a gallant
bid in 1910, but waa not quite seasoned
enough, and when the Pirates fell by the

Niche in Base Ball
Filled by Iron Men
v Has Few Occupants
NEW YORK, Aug, 21,-That peculiar
niche in base ball affairs which is filled
by what are known-aa Iran men la one
that has had few - eeaupante. Tho iron
men of note, real, iron men, have been
few and far between. The term is ap
plied only to Pitchers, and means those
pitchers whose constitutions are suffi
ciently strong to permit them to do more
work in tha box than most twirlers could
stand. 'Unusual capacity for work and
exceptional pitching ability are attributes
of the Iron men of the mound.
The first pitcher to whom the term
was applied was Joe McGlnnity, and he
came Into it not so much because of the
frequency with which he pitched as his
capacity for double-headers. To this day
ho goes Into the box often, and few
pitchers have worn . as well. . ' .
There are two other leading exponents
of the iron man business. One is Ed
Walsh of the White Sox, the most noted
of the three, and the other is Jack
Coombs. Coombs isn't pitching as fre
quently as" he did last year, but his
capacity for work gqupled with his skill
as a boxman tided Connie Mack and tho
Athletics . over many a - rough apot and
pulled out many a' game In which some
other pitoher wabbled.
- Coombs, like Walsh, could stand being
hurled into the breach many a time be
yond the ordinary, and then his expert
ness on the ' peak did the rest. ' Walsh
probably has pitched In more games a
year for the length of time he has been
In the game than any other pitcher base
ball has known. It was predicted half
a dosen years ago -that the inordinate
y ear and tear would get him, but he is
still, at. it, . and, as ..effective, If not as
strong, as -.ever.. He is a spitbaH pitcher
toof 'another thing" supposed to be very.
trying, but he contends . that , with him
that form of delivery j is no more exact
ing on the arm than any other way of
pitching. . . . . .

NEW YORK. Aug. 81. Several tenta
tive Itineraries have been drawn up for
the proposed around-the-world tour of
tho Glanta this coming winter, but in
any event there will bo little or no play
ing after leaving Australia. The main
features of the trip are likely to be aa
follows, ' although there may be varia
tions due to the exigencies of travel and
steamship.- connections: If tha party
leaves San Francisco on November 2 or
as soon after the world's series as possi
ble (the trip Is not contingent on the
Giants being in the world's series) it
would strike Honolulu a week later and
probably also play a game at Hllo, In the
Hawaiian islands. ...
The probable date of reaching Japan
would be November 26. with exhibitions
there in Yokohama, Tokio, Kobe and
the two cltiee are within an hour's ride
of each other. Kobe and Nagasaki are
at the other end of the island, and should
the players take the trip from Yokohama
to. Kobe by rail they would miss one of
the delights of the Nippon kingdom,' the
inland sea, though either way a glimpse
of Fujiyama is possible, i " i,.
There is talk of 'taking In Shanghai
and Hongkong,' striking Shanghai on De
cember 3. From Hongkong to Manila la
tho plan, with four or five daya In the
Philippines, thence to Australia, reach
ing Brisbane about January 1. Brisbane,.
Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide are the
Australian cities being considered .by the
tour-makers, t. .
From Australia the idea is to come
home by way . of the Indian ocean and
Colombo, reaching Colombo on January
3L Aden, Port Said, ' Marseilles . and
Gibraltar are porta outlined to be touched
on the homeward voyage, with possible
tempting and brief digressions to Cairo,
Rome, Parts and London. . There Is now
no plan to return-from Australia other
than by the Red sea," Sues and "' the
Mediterranean. South America. Is no
longer being considered. '

Gossip of Players
in Western League
"Parson'1. Frantx, one of the numerous
former Kansas City players who was ae-.
cured by Dale Gear early in the season
and who later was released to Wichita,
has now been given .the royal bounce by
George Hughes. The Jobber manager said
Frantx was not going good enough to
warrant carrying him at the salary he
Tommie Miller, who is cavorting around
the left garden for the Antelopes while
big Bill McCormlck is laid up with a
split digit seems to be covering a large
amount of territory and holding up In
fine shape, and at the bat Tommie is no
slouch, either. ,
Of course the Omaha fans will not kick
on the Rourkes losing a game every once
in a while, but when the boys get a two
run lead and then lose it by errors-six,
to be correct hen it Is time to lose one's
money with a long face. ,
Manager Ducky Holmes of the : Sioux
City Indians has purchased Pitcher Pat
Conway from the- Nebraska City club of
the Mink league, to report at the close of
the season. Conway started out with
Sioux City this spring, but did not de
liver the goods, but for the last month
and a, half he has been pitching like a
house afire for Clink Claire's aggrega
tion and has done much to put Nebraska
City in the lead of that league.
Tbe Denver management is hoping that
the Wichita directors will . consent . to a
transfer of the series of September 20-24
to the Colorado metropolis, but it Is in
credible that the Kansans will agree to
the switch.'1 Leave 1t to a vote of the
Wichita fans and there-will be nothing
doing. - , .
Wichita has Just closed a deal whereby
it will get two new players, a pitcher and,
an infielder, from tne Pekin team in the
Illinois-Missouri league. Tho pitcher la
named Pettlt a big six-foot right hander,
and the infielder is supposedly a German
named McGaff igan. It these recruits put
up an article of ball as misleading aa
their names, Georse Hughes will make
use of the recall. .
Ducky Holmes seems to have picked a
live one in Lynch, who has been playing
in the right garden for tha Indians during

Sullivan Refutes Charges Against
Athletes at Olympic Games.

United Statea Commissioner Resents-Chara-es
to Great Britain Wlthont
Signature or Proof.
NEW YORK, Aug. 31. James E. Sulli
van, the United States commissioner atj
the Olympic games, issued a long state-,
ment tonight refuting charges against thei
American Olympic athletes.
Mr, Sullivan's report was prompted par-,
tioularly by a letter written by an Eng-,
Jlsh spectator of the games, publlshedj
In the London Times, charging that thei
American runners were guilty of "pock-i
etlng," elbowing" and "beating th pistol")
From this and similar letters that have
appeared in the London press, Mr.'
Sullivan declared that a reader was forced
to th conclusion that English sports-l
manship "Is of a very low order if It
Is represented by the writers of such
Mr. Sullivan took up specifically all ofl
the charges made and branded each aa a
falsehood and insult to every man on!
the American team and said it was ai
great satisfaction to Americans to know!
there' was a mass of authentic data to)
refute the charges, which are being cir-i
culated in England without being digni
fied by either a signature or a proof.
"Instead of realizing the true sltua-i
tlon," Mr. Sullivan wrote, "the English-!
men run to the abusive stage and In
order to ' explain why Sweden and Fin-
land defeated them they abuse the Ameri-1
can athletes. Tbe records show that the!
Englishmen finished fourth in the track'
and field events." . -' ... P;
Mr. Sullivan concluded, with strictures:
on the way the Olmplo meet was car-!
rled on In London In .1903 as compared)
with the "wholesome affair at Stock-;
Following the return of Ira Belding to i
Wichita by Des Moines, he waa given hla
unconditional release. This marks the
passing of the oldest player In point ot
continuous service in tbe Western league. .
Ira's term of service began with the Min-j
neapolls club in 1901, since which he had'
played with St. Joseph, Denver, Pueblo,,
Wichita and Des Moines. His service
even antedates that of Catcher Jowney
Gonding, who broke into this league with'
Omaha in 1902. Ira could catch 'em In
the outfield as well as ever; his arm was
A No. 1 and he could pickle the pill, but
he was slipping in the department of!
speed and bad to make room for thei
youngsters. It is unlikely, however, that 1
Ira will drop out of the pastime. He is i
still capable of delivering the goods in a'
Class B or Class C league, where his ex-'
perience should enable him to go along
and render capable service.
