Jack tried to enlist was not fabricating.
The Writer, Not Collins, Guilty
The efforts of some sporting writers to
construct "stories" from material gath
ered from the surrounding atmosphere In
dicate two things: First that tho writer
not only has a glaring disregard for the
truth but that ho Is even willing to In
jure the standing of a person In a com
munity for tho sako of putting over a
fake "story." The dispatch which came
from Detroit purporting to give a portion
of Eddie Collins' letter to Eddie Clcotto
was false from start to finish. Eddie Col
lins wrote to Eddlo Clcotto thanking the
White Sox pitcher for sending him (Col
lins) a message of congratulation when
he was sold to Comlskey. But he did not
say in that letter that ho was glad to
be away from Mack's team. He did not
Intimate that he wanted to leavo Phila
delphia because the tans were not appre
ciative. Clcotto no doubt, In an unguard
ed moment, dropped the Information In
the presence of a quack sporting writer
that he had received a letter from Col
lins. That writer took It upon himself
to write a quotation which contained not
one Iota of truth. It made the fans of
Philadelphia who have always boen loyal
to Collins angry and no matter what Is
stated later thero will always bo some
people here who believe that Collins
wrote that letter and who will bo his
enemies. And all because some one writing
a story In Detrplt has regard neither for
truth nor for the feelings of an individual.
Such a person. If his Identity were known,
should tie barred In the futuro from writ
ing anything whatever. Any man who
attempts to enter the field of sport writ
ing should at least stand on his merits
and not try to advance his personal cause
by unfair, underhand, despicable means.
The Same Old Story
On co again for the thousandth or mere
time New York has blazed the trail to
tbe goal of real Journalism, according to
Metropolitan Ideals. These Ideals consist
In giving tli? public a good yarn whether
it Is based on facts or fancy. It Is a
great system for space writers. It gives
them unlimited opportunities, and stimu
lates their Imagination beyond belief. The
latest, but unfortunately we fear not the
last, story of this character came out
yesterday, when It was stated. Eddie Col
lins would play with the New York Yan
kees, The reasons given were that Col
lins was needed as a drawing card; that
he Was bought by Comlskey In Chicago
for the Hole purpose of offsetting Walter
Johnson, who at that time was supposed
to be a member of the Chicago Federal
League Club. When Johnson Jumped
back to Washington, ea the story goes,
Comlskey wanted to get rid of Collins,
nnd after Rupert and Huston had bought
the Yankees they agreed to take him,
Connla Mack says the story Is absurd.
Eddie Collins says that he will play with
"Was Mr. Wright, All Bight!
This is a truo story of baseball and golf
that Interests tennis players because Its
hero Is George Wright, whom many lov
ers of tho game believe to bo the step
father, If not tho real fathor, of American
lawn tennis.
Wright was playing a round at golf with
tho veteran tennis player, J. Parmly
Parot, at the Columbia Country Club
links In Washington some years ngo. As
they came up to tho last hole they found
two strangers on a bench near the tee
watching tho play. Said one to his friend.
quite audibly, as he saw George step up
to drive:
"Why, that man's the perfect Image of
George Wright, tho old baseball player."
Just then Wright drove off a long truo
"And ho drives like Wright used to bat,
too," the Btrangcr added.
Amused., at the "mistake," George
winked, and Pnrct asked the speakor:
"Who was this George Wright you aro
speaking of?"
"Havo you never heard of George
Wright, tho greatest man who ever threw
n bnseball? Why, he was ono of the orig
inal Providence team, 'way back 20 years
ago. There's never been another ball
player In the country since as good as he
was. I can toll you. Why, he could pitch,
and bat and run bases better than any of
these players you see on the diamond to
day." "Did you know Wright?" asked the gen
uine George.
"Did I know him? Well, I guess I ought
to know him after playing three years on
tho same team with him," replied the
stranger. "Wright was our pitcher, Smith
was our catcher," and he went on to name
the whole team, ending, "and I played
right field."
"What's your name?" asked Wright.
"Ford," was tho reply.
Parot had driven oft by this time and
the two started on. Paret looked appeal,
ingly at the veteran ball player, but
George shook his head and modestly went
on without allowing tho. stronger to know
who he was.
"Why didn't you let mo tell him?" asked
Paret, after they were out of earshot.
"Because ho was lying," said George,
who was always a great lover of pure
truth. "I know every man well who over
played on the Providence team, and that
fellow was not one of them. Besides, that
wa3 all SO years ago, and ho didn't look a
day over 40. He must have been n little
boy when I was playing baseball.
"But the funniest part of It was that In
named every player right until he cam
to right field; but no man named Ford
ever played that position."
And to this day, unless he reads these
lines, that man does not know that he was
talking to the real George Wright all tho
