Seek Place in Washington
NIjW YOJtK. Feb. 20.-Prcsldent Harrow, of
tho International League, at present Is flgurlng
upon Washington. D. C. as a stronghold fof
Ids league. Should major opposition bar him
from tho Broil It Is likely that tho capltM
ci y may get j opportunity to root for a fait
minor club. The old grounds of tho Senators
are available. So objection nould bo mad
to a transfer of the Skreters there, as the tnovo
would block any poailble designs tho Federals
might have upon the capital.
WHEN Denton Tecumseh Young,
familiarly Known In intimate base
ball circles as Cy, won Ills G08th mujor
league victory and shortly afterward"
retired from tho game, tho opinion was
freely offered that ho had set a pitch
Ins marlc for all time.
"Over,G00 bis league victories In the
box It will never be touched," was the
comment of the time. And perhaps the
comment was properly conceived.
Young a Marvel
Old Cy was undoubtedly a pitching
marvel. To begin with, ho lasted 22
years as a bis league pitcher. Ho won
291 games In the National League and
217 In tho American.
After pitching 16 years lie had bad
seasons In 1905 and 1906, and every
one set him down as belns through
a grand old veteran and such, but a
member of tho Has Beens at last. Then
In 1907, Ills 19th season, lie Jumped
out to another good year, and tn 1908,
his 20th campaign, hoNdld even better,
with 21 victories and 11 defeats for an
average of .656. And lie was 42 years
old when lie established this marlc.
His Sole nival
There Is still tmo man In baseball
with a chance to equal or tie Young's
marlc. The name Is Mathewson, the
premier of the Giants.
Matty has served 15 campaigns In
the bis league, counting 1900, when he
worked three games and lost them all.
This Is his 16th year, and ho Is now
35 years old. If he can last seven more
seasons he will equal Young's 22-year
Btand and still retire from the same
two years younger than Cyrus was
when he ceased flrlns at the old plate.
So It Isn't Impossible. For Matty Is
also a bis mail physically, with a world
of vitality and a canny brain that un
derstands how to protect an arm and
conserve natural pitching resources.
So far Mathewson has won 352 ball
games with tho Giants, his only home
under tho Big Tent. This record should
count as 14 years work, as Mathew
son only worked three games In 1900
without achieving a victory. To show
how closely the two have traveled,
Young at the end of H years bad wpa
354 games, Just two beyond the Giant
star's present total.
To equal Young's record Mathewson
now has 156 victories to accumulate.
This means that be must stick in ac
tlYo harness at Hast six mpre seasons
and be abfe to average 25 conquests a
year through this length of time. It
means that he must pitch at the same
average for six mora seasons tho
earn average he has maintained Hinca
lu Joined the Giants.

Ho is now In fine condition and ap

taken wonderful caro of himself In

Hjs Last Year
Matty Is supposed to have drawn a
bad year last season, but It was only a
had finish after his mates had faded
out and hit the chutes. At one stage
of the battlins he had won 16 games
and lost only 4. Ho finished with 24
victories asalnst 13 defents,"a percent
age of .650 his lowest mark since 1906.
But when hl3 mates wero out hustling
and playing a bit of baseball he looked
as good as at any past stago of his
career. For moro thun two months he
boomed along at an .800 Jaunt. Then
the Giants buckled up like a cheese
ship struck by a torpedo and Matty
dropped nlnepf his last 17 starts.
So here is a pitcher at 35 who looks
as youns as he 'did at 25 and who Is
traveling still at the same clip. A
pitcher with a fine physique, a flno
temperament, a fine brain and a clean
mode of living. Certainly If any man
In tho game Is to beat Young's great
record, Mathewson Is the man.

Sportsmen's Show began today at the Grand
national sport by the decision of the
Britons to cancel their big golf tourney,
and not to challenge for the Davla Cup,
Unfortunately, the U. S. A. can't chal
lenge Brooks and Wilding, present holders-
of the cup. They're too busy dodg
ing lead to play tennis.
There, If You Must Have It!
Yes, wo had thought of It, but hoped
to be ablo to keep It quiet. Billy should
Kopf Frank Baker's job.
To Johnson, Tener, Gllmore, et al
Have you made any plans for next
year's Winter League?
Was a Good Cause
Eddie Lenny's benefit at the Fair
mount Athletlo Club last night was
quite as successful as the promoters
had hoped, and the one-time boxer re
ceived a snug sum to help tide him over
difficulties. There was a good crowd of
real sportsmen present. The work of
tho boxers was very comri.endable.
"What's the Matter?
We wonder If Sam Harris has over
looked the fuct that several 24 hours
lias passed since he made the remark
that ho would decide whether his cham
pion nshter, Kid Williams, would battle
Johnnie Kllbane or not. Harris begged
a day tp think over the proposition of
splitting an offer of $11,000. '
Wise Men Wary of Bit, Fight
Joe Villa, In the J v Yor.. Evening
Sun, has the following comment to make
on the Johnson-Wlllard fight;
"If the promoters of the JohnsonWll

6 at Juarez, Mexico, aro successful In
getting the big negro Into the ring local

the outcome. Prom the time this match
was arranged up to date ring followers
have been skeptical, it is argued that
there will be no money In a Johnson vic
tory except the J30.000 which, It Is al
leged, the negro will receive. By ac
complishing the defeat of Wlllard the
negro would gain nothing In prestige
and also would find it Impossible -to
Secure another match.
"A victory or the white man, how.
ever, would mean a fortune for tho pro
moters who are supposed to be deeply
interested In Willard's success. The' per
sons who are financing the fight are
anxUjus to see the negro defeated for
the (reason that Wlllard. as a drawing
card, can tpur the world in a successful
campaign tor easy money. Moving pic
tures of a Willard vlctpry, also, woulfl
Mi profitable jn Great Britain. Australia,
and Canada. Jt Is Just possible th.t
Johnson would have a share tn the fllra.
"It will not be surprising, therefore. If
