Steelton Manager Will Get a
• Warm Welcome at Wil
"Like the Pittsburgh club, with
Hans Wagner coming in Tri-State
•lays, is the Steelton club, with George
Cockill. "Eddie" Plank, George Pierce
and other famous men. and tne fans
throughout this section are getting
ready to just go crazy. A fan in the
street to-day. said: "So far as I am
concerned for to-morrow afternoon,
our factory might as well declare a
holiday, for I would work nights to
make it up rather than miss seeing
this game.'"
Yea. 80, when the lads from Cottage
Hill hit Williamsport to-day. as the
lo<jal paper says, folks are going to
go batty. We have a picture of Man-
Cockill alighting from the rat
tler. with a mob of old friends and
hero-worshipers waiting to carry
him off. shoulder-high.
You se-e. George made much of his
fame at Williamsport, and he has j
never been back since Tri-State days !
until this trip, when he takes his
celebrated Steel League champions,
whose names are now familiar wher
ever baseball is read. First column, j
front page, is hardly good enough for
the local papers to advertise this big i
event, and Harrtsburg and Steelton l
fans would shiver with pride to sec
how highly regarded is the Cottage 1
Hill ball club over there.
The team representing: Wiliamspo::
is from the Lycoming Foundry, an.:
it is afraid of no one. That the gam
will he worth the price of admission
i< certain, for there was a lot of kid
ding in arranging it. like this:
" 'Jack' Walton and 'Tom' Grav
were baseball fanning at one of 11-.
games, a few weeks ago. 'Tom'
thought it would be nice to get Cook
ill's team up to play. Walton said he
wouldn't mind haying Steelton come,
even with the big guarantee demand
ed. if they would bring their regular
players, but he didn't want any subs.
"CocklU got a letter to that effect
and came right back, giving his line
up with the comment: This is a real
ball club, and if your team expects to
make a showing you had better get
the best. I will personally make you
a present of $lO if you win and $1 for
every run you get ' "
Says the local sport chronicler, in
telling of the Steelton manager:
"Cockill himself has a national repu
tation. Like 'Christy' Xlathewson, he
started his athletic career at Buck
nell University. After making quite
a name for himself in college base
bail circles Cockill joined the Provi
dence club, playing there in 1906-07.
He was drafted by Detroit, sold to
XVilliamsport and helped win the Tri-
State pennant in 1908.
"Cockill's playing attracted baseball
scouts, who secured his release and
farmed him to Montreal for the sea
sons of 1909-10. With 'Tom' Gray
and 'Bill' Coughlin. Cockill purchased
his release, managed the Reading
club and won the cup there in 1911.
Governor Tener then secured him to
/impire in the National League and he
'*>tayed three seasons.
"Plan were laid to have him come
here and manage the Lycoming
Foundry club this year, but as the
Steel League, of which he might be
called the father, was then in process
of incubation, he was offered the man
agement of Steelton and the position
of one of the advisory directors of the
newly-formed league. His influence
secured for the Steelton clubb such
renowned players as 'Eddie' Plank.
•Jack' Kr.ight. A 1 Kaufman. 'Steve'
Yerkes and others."
Many property owners In the Tenth
and Fourteenth wards have filed the
deeds to their properties during the
last two days. After August 15 prop
erty, owners who acquired title to
their properties previous to April 1,
1918, will be subject to a fine of $5
for failure to register their prop
erties. *
Cicero Grant and Elmer Brown
have hacl Joe Pennington arrested
on the charge of stealing $S and two
watches. They also charge that he
was aided by two companions. The
alleged theft took place early this
morning in Sunshine Park.

Speaking of the Chicago Cubs and I
their chances for the pennfmt, X. E.!
Sanborn, a veteran baseball critic, j
gives the bulk of the credit to Wil- j
iiam Killifer. the catcher secured j
rom the Phillies last winter in the ;
uistoric Killifer-Alexander deal. He ;
joints out that backstops are. as a,
.ule, the victim of injustice and that
about the only way Killifer can
break into print, is to win a game by
a great catch or a mighty wallop, or
,to make a huge blunder and lose the;
I battle." Yet. he insists. Killifer* has j
1 "made" the Cubs. Tyler, Hollocher
and Paskert have helped a lot. but
. none of them as much as the
l American backstop.
It may sound foolish to the fans to ;
say Killifer has strengthened the Cub ;
: pitching staff more than Alexander ]
could have done if he had toot been j
drafted, but baseball men will under
stand. j
Alexander could have pitched only i
■once in four days, or occasionally in
i three days. Killifer is in there every:
game, making better pitchers thau :
thev were before out of all of Mitch- j
! ell's slab staff. That's one of the j
1 biggest reasons why the Cubs have i
been the surprise of this season.
' One of the first things I noticed j
when switching from the White Sox ;
to the Cubs recently was the change ;
in the pitching of Vaughn. Hendrix \
and Douglas. I had not seen them I
: work since last year and the difTer- j
euce was marked. They were getting!
a lot more help behind the bat than
they had at any time last year in the .
matter of "working" the batsmen. . i
] None of the Cub pitchers has any!
more "stuff" than he had before. In I
fact. Douglass cannot be expected to !
! regain all his former strength and j
i speed until later, as it takes time to I
j recover from an operation for appen- j
I dicitis Yet Douglas, returning to the i
igame earli than expected, has been [
I pitching winning baseball,
i The reason is that two heads are i
better than one in pitching as well I
as in some other things, and now the !
I Cubs have both a pitcher and a j
! catcher thinking how to fool each !
' batsman. And nobody knows the
| batsmen of the National League any j
better than Sir William of the Mask.
Killifer is unquertionably the best
1 catcher in the National League. When !
the deal with Philadelphia brought
Alexander and Killifer'' to the Cubs
i the former was the headliner, but. in I

The stone-picking party to have
been held at the Seneca street swim
ming pool was postponed from last
night until to-night.
my opinion, the North Side club own
ers were more than to be congratulat
ed on obtaining Killifer than on get
ting his more famous battery mate,
and that is not knocking Alexander
the Great. He was the best in the
National League. But if Killifer. in
stead of Alexander, had been drafted
into the Army the Cubs would not
have won as many games as they have
this season, because Aleck could not
have pitched all of them, while Killi
fer has caught most of them. And
the best pitcher in the world can't win
without support.
The support given a pitcher by his
catcher is greatly underrated by the
general run of baseball followers. In
proof thereof look back and see If
any team ever won a world's series
without a good catcher. Not all the
world's champion backstops have
been great catchers, both mentally
and mechanically. Not all of thein
have been "Billy" Sullivans. "Johnny"
Klings. Ray Schalks or 'Bill" Killifers.
but they have been good, brainy
catchers just the same.
The real reason why McGraw has
not won a world's pennant since 1905
is that he has not had the right com
bination behind the bat since then. On
the other hand, while the Phillies did
not win the world's championship
with Killifer catching, he was more
responsible for winning the National
League pennant tha,t year than was
Alexander the Great. although the
pitcher was giver, most of the credit
by the uninitiated.
Powers. Lapp and" Thomas, who
were behind the bat for the Athletics
when thev were supreme in the base
ball world for so many seasons, ware
not as famous as* some other catchers,
because they lacked brilliant mechani
cal ability, but they were there with
the goods to help their pitchers do
the thinking in the critical moments,
and that is what turns the tide in
many a game of baseball.
The tendency is to give the pitcher
and the men back of him too great
prominence. Their work is out in the
open, where everybody can see it. The
catcher's best work is done out of
sight, where nobody but the pitcher
can see it. carefully concealed from
the enemy.
More than one game has been won
or lost because a catcher showed two
fingers instead of one against the
background of his big mitt, while
squatting silently behind the bats

His Paper Sight Was
Costly to Trapshooter
Peter P. Carner, dynamo of trap
shooting narrative, tells an old inci
dent of the Maplewood shoot. "Usu
ally," says he "when a trapshooter
has a new-fangled idea or a sight
that he wants to try out, he gives the
home club boys the benefit of the
test; but it remained for George
Brown, of Seneca Falls, N. Y., a sea
soned shooter, to try a paper tele
scope sight in the Maplewood cham
pionship—the classic event of the
Maplewood Trapshooting Tourna
ment. In this event with Brown
were ten of the best shots in the
East—every one a winner in a Ma
plewood "100." The winning of the
championship meant SIOO in gold
and a diamond gold medal. It
wasn't an event in which to experi
ment—and besides it was raining,
i Brown, however, rolled up a score
| sheet to resemble a long tube and
j strapped it to the barrel of his gun.
j He missed four of the first seven
! teen targets thrown—more than he
I had missed in any one day's shooting
I all week—and then tore off the wet
j tube. Brown finished the event with
[ a run of 83 straight Anyone who
I can break 83 straight doesn't need
j paper tube sights.
In the Ohio state shoot. Homer
j Clark, professional shot, broke 412
] targets in succession, 375 the first
day of the tournament and 6 2 the
second day before missing. Three
hundred and seventy-five is the best
one-day record.
In point of numbers and in tar
gets thrown the Maplewood shoot
was all that could be desired. There
were 126 shooters in competition
during the week and 99,275 targets
were thrown. Four of the six days
were ideal: Jn fact, they couldn't
have been better if made to order for
the occasion. Maplewood is an ideal
place for a trapshooting tournament

Ways and Means Committee
Plans Also to Tax Women's
Hats and Shoes
Washington, Aug. 14.—An occupa
tional tax of $lO a year on every
business, occupation and profession !
earning $2,000 or more a year j
was adopted by the ways and
means committee to-day as h new
section of the revenue bill. On whole
sale concerns doing a business of
$200,000 or more a year the tax will
be $25.
The only exemptions from payment
of the occupational tax are employes,
farmers, clergymen and school teach
ers. The tax will include lawyers,
dentists, authors, engineers and ar
No. estimate has been received by
the committee from the treasury de
partment as to the amount of money
the tax will produce.
The committee adopted an amend
ment to the section imposing a tax
on leased wire and talking circuits
so as to exempt from the tax the
leased wires used by preis associa
tions and newspapers and periodicals.
The tax will still apply to brokers'
private wires and circuits.
The committee also adopted an
amendment to the income section to
provide that citizens of this country
residing in Canada or other foreign
countries shall pay to the county In
which they reside the income tax on
that part of the income derived
there. The effect of this will be that
Americans residing in Canada shall
pay to Canada whatever may be due
under the Canadian income tax regu
lations. The purpose of the amend
j ment is to collect the tax from a
large number of Americans who have
soqght to evade payment by crossing
the Canadian line.
Secretary McAdoo conferred briefly
with Chairman Kitchin to-day and it
I was arranged to have him go before

tary McAdoo will lay before the com
mittee a great deal of the secret in
formation In the possession of the
treasury department showing how
some of the rich profiteers have es- 1
caped. The hearing will be execu
After Secretary McAdoo has com
pleted his statement the committee
hopes to be able to reach an agree
ment upon the war profits and ex
cess profit section, so that the bill
will be ready for introduction in the
house next Monday. All of the other
sections of the bill have been virtu
ally completed, and the estimates
from the various sources of taxation
Umposed are within $500,000,000 of"
the desired total of $8,000,000,000.
The luxury tax section has been
revised and definitely agreed upon by
the committee. It is one of the most
interesting sections of the bill, affect
ing, as it does, a larger proportion
of the population than any other
