"They've traded doga for men,
And eo we've dragged them Into court

And daro the magnates of the sport
To try this stunt again."
Of, course, this Is enough to mako
Any one Indignant, but iho principal
argument seems to bo they didn't ask
the permission of the ball players.
According to the IPederal flood of ofll
dfcvlta they didn't even tell a man he
was going to ba traded until the deed
-mus consummated. Nothing la said
about whether the dogs wer told.

And ho for the passing hills and glades

And ho for the river's call.

But this they all aro free to say,
He's some ball-tossing boy.

Baseball as a Trust
Wo aro In somewhat of a plcklo re
garding ono or two phases of tho trust
Idea In baseball. As follows:
Tho main trust Idea In baseball Is
tho Kesorvo Clause This clauso Is
nolthor legally nor morally binding.
But aro the Fods freo from lt7 Will
Mr. Ollmoro answer this: When Ford's
contract explros with Buffalo, or Sea
ton's contract oxplrcs In Brooklyn, will
tho Chlfeds have tho right to Jump out
and offer Ford and Soaton moro money
to leave Buffalo and Brooklyn? Have
tho olght Fed clubs been given permis
sion to bid for players In their own
league, as well as In tho American or
As wo understand It, each player in
tho Federal Leaguo can bo reserved
with a cortaln lncreaso In salary. But
supposo this lncreaso doesn't meet
what another Fed club might dcslro to
glvo? Can that player leave his club
for a rival member of tho same circuit?
If ho can we have been misinformed as
to the Fed status. And If wo'ro wrong
we'd llko to be put right. And if we're
right Just what Is tho yawning differ
ence between the two systems operated
by tho two contending elements in the
Ono Chanco for Breaking Trust
There Is but ono chanco to have the
trust tinting romoved from baseball
and this Is for all leagues to abolish the
reserve clause and to have each player
entitled to step out and accept tho best
bid, regardless of the club or league.
Will tho Feds subscrlbo to this doc
trine? Will Mr. Weeghman bo willing
to let Mr. Ward stop out and mako a
bid for Claude Hendrlx?
Baseball has boon compared to the
theatrical game. It Is entirely differ
ent. Each show stands upon Its own
merit. A good Bhow will draw tho peo
ple. But in baseball there is tho Idea
of even competition, or as oven as it
can be made. The greatest club in the
world wouldn't draw if It was forced
to meet a second-rate outfit.
On the other hand, It seems unfair
that a ball player can only get J4000
in Cincinnati or Cleveland when New
Tcrl; or Chicago would be glad to pay
him WOO). But as long as a city of
400,000 Is forced to enmpoto with a city
of 3,000,000 or 6,000,000 and keen com
petition Is the basis of the sport, wh it
Is to be done about It? Mr. London
has nothing on us. Wo are palpitat
