Method of Keeping String on Players, Frowned
Upon a Few Years Ago, May Prove Bene
ficial for Short Period
MANY crftlca declare tlio purchnso of a largo block of stock In tho Peoria Club
of tho 1. 1. I. LenRue by tho Chicago Cubs will start tho old "fnrmlnB" system
Which was so sovorcly criticised and. surely will brlnjr forth a howl of protest
from tho Players' Fraternity as soon na Tinker tries to switch a player back
to tho "bushes," and hold a string on him.
Tho funning out of players has many disadvantages, but with tho major
leagues overloaded -with "Ironclad" contracts, It is a great question as to
whether tho'gamo will not bo better oft If "farming" Is permitted for a year or
two, Tho National Commission should not permit a class H or C league team
to bo used as a. "farm," however, as It Is suro to causo complications.
Thero are many players who will refuse to go to a team In a class B or C
league, and qutto a fow will Insist on being sent to class AA organizations. Tlicr.-
Xoro It would seem wlso of tho magnates (If they Intend to return to the "farming
Bystem) to havo working agreements with clubs of tho International, Pacific Coast
or .American Association leagues.
Cubs Will Pay Difference in Snlarics
Manager Joo Tinker Insists that tho Cubs have made no agreement with
Teorla, but that ho purchased tho stock as an Investment. It Is possible, accord
ing to Tinker, that a great Heal of tho" excess Cub baggage will bo sent to Peoria,
but In no caso will tho player bo tho loser. If a player has a contract calling for
moro than tho Peoria Club can afford to pay, the Chicago Club will mako up
tho difference
As tho salary limit In tho I. I. I. League is $1500, It Is asking too much to
expect tho fans to bcllcvo that tho Chicago Club will pay the difference In salary
for flvo or six players unless Peoria Is being used as a farm. Tinker has fow
youngsters on his roster, and It Is doubtful If thoro uro moro than two players
on tho Cub payroll drawing less than $2400.
Although tho farming system Is said to havo been extinct for years, It Is
well known that several clubs had "working agreements" with minor leaguo
clubs. A notablo instance of this was tho continual shifting of players between
tho Clovctand Americans nnd tho Portland Club, of tho Paclllc Coast League.
Cleveland also used Its American Association team for this purpose, but that
was to be" expected, ns there was no attempt to conceal the fact that Charley
Somcrs owned both franchises.
Whllo It Is hoped that some of tho evils due to tho farming policy nro not
repeated, baseball would suffer in no way if it was adopted for two years, ns both
major and minor leaguo clubs would havo their financial burden lessened with
two clubs dividing tho expenso of an "Ironclad" contract.
Von Kolnitz Case for National Commission
Another Interesting point for the National Commission Is tho Von Kolnitz
case. Two weeks ago "Von Kolnitz sent IiIb resignation to President Herrmann,
of tho Itcds, believing at the tlmo that ho could not make satisfactory arrange
ments to leave his law practice In Charleston, S. C, during the summer months.
A fow days ago Von Kolnitz learned that It would be posslblo for him to leport
to the Ileds and notified Herrmann to this effect.
It 13 said that Herrmann Insists that Von Kolnitz will havo to sign n now
contract calling for less money than tho "wnr-time" contract, claiming that tho
resignation mado the document void. There Is no telling Just how tho National
Commission will decido this case; but it Is hoped that it will deal fairly with
Von Kolnitz, ns tho baseball contract should bo kept out of court.
Critics Believe Braves Look Best in National League
Bill Phclon, tho veteran baseball writer of the Cincinnati Times-Star, can
peo nothing but the Eraves In the coming National Leaguo raco. This sentiment
appears to be strong in National League cities of the "West. The Cubs were
favorites a few weeks ago, butChIcago critics now concede that tho Braves nro
the strongest combination In tho leaguo on paper. In commenting on tho outlook
In tho National League, Phelon says:
"Despite all tho shifts and changes made In the ranks of the National
League clubs during tho winter, nnd tho Influx of Federal leaguers, thero seems
it reason to question the real superiority
compared to nil other teams In the Tenor
realty fTitr strongest In tho league last season, will take tho field in better shapo
than over, and it is hard to tlguro where any of the other seven crews havo
added enough strength to beat Stallings to tho wire. Hence Boston seems tho
logical choice, accidents1 barred, for tho 1910 banner.
"Tho Braves woro In all kinds of tuggh luck last season, nnd didn't help
themselves any by their behavior and conduct In the game. They were so crippled
that they wero shy n considerable percentago of their fighting power, and yet
finished only 46 percentage points south of Philadelphia. Closo attention to
business, less scrapping with umpires, less chestlness on und off tho field, might
easily havo overcome that margin, oven though tho Braves wero short-handed.
With a full team In tho struggle, how could they have possibly been stopped last
summer? And how can any one beat them out this year?"
Giving F. Jones the "Once Over"
Any ono doubting Fielder Jones' ability as a manager should glance over his
record. Some critics aro inclined to believe that Fielder has been overrated, but
he has dono moro with less material than almost any leader in tho game. In
flvo years as -nanagcr of tho White Sox he novcr was out of tho first division
and won a world's championship. In one year In tho Federal League ho took
a tall-end aggregation and developed a team "which lost tho pennant by a fraction
of a point.
That Jones has qullo a task before him Is evident, ns the Browns havo
finished In tho first division but twice In 14- years. Jones declares that he has
better material at hand this year than he ever has had, so ho evidently feels
certain ho will be up with the leaders.
Jias Admits He Is Out for the Money
In one of tho articles appearing beneath his signature, Jess Willard, heavy
weight champion of tho world, says: "Thero Is one particular thing about this
bout and that is the $47,000 that I am to receive. That, you will admit. Is a
lot or money. Still, when you consider that this Is the frenzied age, I suppose
It Is not out of tho ordinary. .
"You know Charley Chaplin Is going
look like a piker. Boxing Is now icgulated on a business basis like everything
else. Ouo Is compelled to make tho most of opportunity and earn every dollar
possible. And especially In my caso, when I havo four children growing up who
will ned every advantage to fight their way through tho world."
Wlhard Is to bo commended for trying to look out for tho future of his
children; but for tho good of the game It is to be hoped that the champion
gets trimmed when ho meets Moron, If he entertains any Idea of raising his
price In caso he wins. Then the fans will bo forced to read of Willard's stage
doings Instead of his boxing. Evidently, Tom Jones censored tho article, the
Whole tone of which would Indicate that Willard warns still more money or ho

Pitt Tightens Eligibility Rules
Realizing that It will be Impossible to ask or receive recognition at tho hands
of Vale, Harvard and Princeton (which Is its ultimate aim), the University
cf Pittsburgh athletic association Is tightening its eligibility lines. As a result
several Btar athletes have been barred from further competition until their
scholastic marks aro Improved. It Is rumored In Pitt that several gridiroi stars
will be dropped from college If they do not work off conditions before the close
cf the present term.
In connection with this, Karl Davis, graduate manager of athletics at Pitt,
eays: "Wa are Damns men wno would

Poughkeepsie Race Blocked
When Trains Are Refused
for June 29th or 30th
A railroad company, rather than the
Board of Stewards, will havo tho deter
mining voice In saying where this year's
intercollegiate rcgntta will bo held. Al
though tho railroad company which con
trols the observation train1! olotig the
west slda of tlio Hudson river has twice
refused to furnish trains for either ,1un
2D or 30. tho compromise dates migBCBlcd
by tlio stowaids. the stewards have asked
the company the third nnd last time to
grant this concession.
If the refiucst Is denied, as the Btcwards
seem to feel It will be, the race will be
rowed on Lake Cayuga, nt Ithaca, N. Y ,
Juno 24. This li the final decision of the
Board of Stewards, according to the state
ment of Pennsylvania's rowing authori
ties today.
it wni also learned today thnt vtlien no
agreement could be reached between Cor
nell. I'cnnsyh-ania nnd Columbia and tho
inltroad authorities for a hultnblo date
when the tlrto was running out. It vwis
proposed that Hie raco be rowed upstream
as Hanard and Ynlo firqucntly do nt
New London under similar conditions.
Thin ninnns.il. however, has been definitely
abandoned because It would necessitate
marking out nn entirely new course nnd
Rttirtlnir far ilnwn helow the present fin
ishing point. The raco has never been
rowed upstream.
The onlv objection to rowing the raco
on Lake Cayuga Is its distance from New
York and Philadelphia, which furnish
the big majority of the spectators Tho
length nnd expenslvcness of tho trip to
Ithaca would keep down tho oltendaneo
Although none of the stewards havo
said nnvtlilng for publication It Is known
that there Is considerable resentment to
ward the railroad authorities for their ar
bitrary refusal to run observation trains
on cither June 2D or 30. It Is pointed out
by the stewards that tho railroads are the
only ones that make anything out of tho
regatta. They h.iul from 3O.0U0 to 10,000
persons, many irom long ninnim-i-. mm
they glvo tho competing crews virtually
nothing in return. The railroads will get
many of the spectators for longer hauls
if the regatta goes to Lake Cayuga, but
tho stewards feel that they should mako
some concessions under tlio circumstances.
The excuse, given by the lallrnnds for
their unwillingness to have tho regatta on
Juno 29 or 30 is that these dates como
too near July I and would Interforo with
their plans for taking care of their holi
day trallle.
Manager Jack Thayer, of the Penn
sylvania crews, explained today that tho
decision to have tho Quaker oarsmen llvo
along Boathouse Bow, at least until after
tho Yale race, did not mean that tho low
ing authorities would convert tho present
boathouso Into habitable bleeping quar
ters. The Quakers' boathouso Is tho poor
est along tho river and no one could Iho
In it. What tho Rowing Committee Is
trying to do is to get tlio consent of other
boat clubs along tho rixer to permit tho
Quaker oarsinon to llvo In their houses.
"This Is being dono simply because, on
account of hours, the entire squad cannot
row together." said Manager Thayer. "It
It not intended to havo the same men row
twice a day necessarily, in order to
mal.o lecture periods on time it will bo
necessary for the early morning spin to
bo taken at about 7 o'clock. Tho second
will bo held late In the afternoon.
"The men will eat at a house near
Strawberry Mansion. This is more or
less of an experiment, but we think
will work out well."

About Pitchers

pitchers cairy but little Interest. The

The futuro of James also depends upon
bin nbillty to eradicate a kink In his right
shoulder. James won 213 games In 1D1-I
and lost seven; in 1915 ho won six games

a vital spot, and Bill hit tho chutes. Some

they don't. The tccord of 191G alono can
