It is all over but the shouting in
the West End League. Motive Pow
er last evening Jolted the Common
wealth Travelers by a score of 1 to
0 and cinched second place. The
West End leaders apd Enginemen
Firemen, tailendcrs will play to
night. This will in all probability
wind up the West End Twilight
series. West End will start the
series with the Reading Railway
team of the Allison Hill League lext
week, for city championship honors.
Fans Get Surprise
Another big surprise was handed
to the fans last evening when "Bibe"
Brown, the centerfielder was sent
into the box to twirl for the M. P.'s.
It looked like a huge joke to the spec
tators, who were of the opinion that
the runners up were backing down.
However, they soon learned that
their dope was wrong. Brown is a
pitcher, and he proved it last eve
ning. He held the Travelers to two
hits. Brown had speed and curves.
The two bingles came in the fifth
In the final round Johnnie Smith
connected with one of Brown's swift
shoots and drove it to deep left field, j
The ball looked as if it was labeled
extra liases, but just as it was about
to go over Garverich's head, this
fleet footed little fielder leaped high
into the air and caught it with one
hand. Had this hit got away from
Garverich, it would have, without
a doubt, been a home run vhich
would have tied up the score.
Only One Run
Washinger was on the mound for
Commonwealth. He pitched a good
game, but his support fell down at
critical times. However, most of the
niiscues were omission instead of
commission. The five hits by the
Motive Power were scattered.
The lonely run came in the first In
ning. Etter filed out to short, but
McCurdy got safe on Winkle's error
and stole second. Garverich Hied out
to the catcher, after Wh Brown
drove a fly to center whi 0 W. Smith
misjudged and permitted to land
safely. On this Lit, McCurdy crossed
the plate. Hippensteel ended the in
ning by flying out to Washinger.

The first game in the local series
will be staged on the Harrisburg
Athletic Club grounds on Labor Day

Winner Over Local Elects
Gcrmer held Boiling Springs last
evening to three clean hits but four
bunts that went for hits on a bad
diamond anW coupled with a few
errors caused the P. R. R, Electri

The Elects had a great chance in
the sixth. Germer opened with a
single and stale second, Cook doubl

Cook scoring, Snyder going to third;
Rannan hit a hot one at short which
he stopped and caught Snyder at

Cincinnati Red's Infield Champions
It { (Copyright, Underwood & Underwood)
Leaders in the National Lea
gue RacelVleet Klein Team
No matter how one figures Har
risburg fans will not pick any other
winner than Cincinnati, and the
Reds will be the choice of local en
thusiasts in the World's Series. Cin
cinnati has been a big favorite here
all season, and if the weatherman
is good enough to give the fans an
ideal day. Island Park will have a
record baseball crowd.
It does not often fall to the lot
of local fans to get a real cham
pionship team, but that is what is
due to play the Klein Chocolate
Company team here to-morrow.
Fans will be here from surround
ing towns. The upper end of the
county will send a large delegation
to give Jake Daubert their old
standby a great welcome. The Cin
cinnati team will arrive this evening
from York.
The game will be called at 3.45.
Manager Pat Moran is not certain
as to his battery. He assures the
local fans that his stars will all be
in the lineup and it looks as if he
would put In threo of his best pitch
ers. Manager Moran wants to keep
his men in shape, and will play
everyday from now until the world's
series, weather permitting.
Jake Daubert Coming
His lineup will include the famous
infield, Groh, Roth and Daubert.
The latter was born .at Llewelyn,
Pa., May 14, 1885. Ho bats and
throws left handed. His height is
five feet ten and one-half inches
and weights 160 pounds. In 1906
he was with the Lykens team and
played in the upper end of the
county. Scouts at once sized him up
as a comer., In 1907 he went to
Marion, Ind.,'played with Cleveland
and Nashville in 1908, Toledo and
Memphis, 1909, drafted by Brooklyp
1'909, wliere he has been since, fig
ured in a deal and joined Cincin
nati 1919.
Jake Is not only a great fielder
but one of the best hitters In the
business, leading the league two
seasons and never hitting below
.300. His last season record was:
Fielding. .991; hitting. .308. He is
another world's series player, hav
ing been with Brooklyn in the
world's series of 1916. He will
more than fill the place of Hal
Ilclnie Groh
Heinle Groh, Cincinnati's third
baseman, was born at Rochester, N.
Y., 14189, bats and throws right
handed, height five feet, eight inch
es. weights 158 pounds. He start
ed and played in Oshkosh, 1908-09-
10; Decatur, 1911; fanned out to
Buffalo same season, with New
York, 1912-13, traded to Cincinnati
1913, where he has been since, being
captain of the Reds this season.
Helnie is acknowledged by every
baseball critic to be the best third
sacker in either major league, be
sides being a crack fielder he Is a
great batsman, hitting around .300
every season he has been with Cin
cinnati. His 1918 record is: Bat
ting, .320; fielding, .969.
Groh probably has the most uni
que position at the bat of any player
in the business, T>ut stings the ball
just the same as his 1918 record
shows. Besides being a star ball
player he is a crack bowler and
very popular.
Manager John Brackenridge, of
the Klein team, will have his star
lineup. He will pitch Walter Harn
ed. There may be one or two
changes, but the boys who made a
good showing against St. Car
■ dlnals and the Athletics will all be

The above quartet has bpen instrumental in putting Cincinnati at the
top of the heap. They are real and include, left to right, Groh, Kopf,
Roth and Daubert. The latter is a Dauphin county product and began his
career on the lots about Lykcns. He is seen in action in the lower picture.

Promotor Leon Rains Has Big
Bill Ready For Wednes
Philadelphia, Aug:. 28.—Another nll-(
star program lias been arranged by'
Promoter Leon Rains for the Phillies' 1 ,
baseball ground on Wednesday even
ing, September 3. Every bout is a'
windup in itself and well worth the!
priees of admission. The following i
card has been arranged:
Joe Benjamin. Pacific coast light-;
weight champion, vs. Joe Koons, Phil
Little Patsy Wallace vs. Walloping I
Max Williamson, both of Philadelphia.
Johnny Murray, New York, vs. K. O.
Joe O'Donnell, Gloucester.
Willie Jackson, New York, vs. Eddie
Wallace Brooklyn.
Benny Leonard, lightweight cham
pion, vs. Soldier Bartfleld, New York, j
Joe. Benjamin. the lightweight'
champion of the PjKfifie coast. wilPbel
seen in action Hi the opening bout.
Benjamin, in his initial appearance in:
Philadelphia, about a month ago, I
made a hit by outpointing Al. Thomp- |
son, the fighting Marine. In Koons, 1
Benjamin is facing a man who knows
nothing but fight during the time that
he is ii: the ring.
The second bout will bring together
two of the best flyweights in the East.
They are the slugging Max AVilliam
son and Patsy Wallace. Williamson
recently easily defeated Battling Mur
ray, while Wallace has met and de
feated the best in his 'division. This
bout is billed for the flyweight cham
pionship of the East.
Return Match
The third match will be a return
match between the hard-hitting
Johnny Murray, of New York, and K.
O. Joe O'Donnell, of Gloucester. Their
last bout in this city last fall still is
the talk of the town. Both men have
been dissatisfied with the result and
they believe that they can even do
better than their last slugfest and
they requested Promoter Rains to
stage the bout.
V The semifinal will bring together
Willie Jackson, of New York, and Ed
die Wallace, of Brooklyn. Jackson is
the boy who knocked Johnny Dundee
cold in less than a round in this city
about two vears ago and twice drop
ped Lew Tendler in the first round of
their recent meeting in this city. In
Wallace Jackson Is facing a clever
and hard hitting opponent. Wallace
has met the best in his class and each
time has given a good account of him
scl f.
Benny Leonard, the world's light
weight champion, fresh from his two
victories over Johnny Dundee and
Irish Patsy Cline, will be the attrac
tion in the main bout. Soldier Bart
