Eastern Visit of Ban Johnson Said to
Presage Naming of back's lieu
tenant as Leader of Yankees—Far
rail to Stay in Baseball
Ne» York, Xov. 17.—1; is expected'
j that, as a result of a visit waich Pre&i
i dent Bau Johnson, of the American '
League, will make here aud iu Philade)
j phia during the next few days, Ira
Thomas, captain of the Athletics, Con i
jme 'Mack's first lieutenant, will t>t'
j named as manager of the Yankees for
: next season. At the recent meeting of
I the American League in Chicago, the
club owners decided that something
1 shouki be done at once to give the
\ankees a high class manager aud a
■Stronger team, if the American League)
hoped to rival the patronage of the NH
I tional league iu th>s city.
It is understood that several men
twve beeu considered for the place, aud
that Johnson s in favor of Thomas,
j on account of hh> knowledge of Alack's
methods and his wide experience with
world's championship teams. Thomas
j has been retained bv Mack for the last
I couple of seasons in the ■capacity of
Icoach and adviser, but as the lean lead
ed also has Harry Davis acting in tae | •
same capacity. :t is believed that John
! son will engineer the deal so that
j Thomas 'an come here as manager.
; Johnson, who left Chicago Sunday
■ aigat, has not yet made his presence
i known in this city, and it is believed
'that he will visit Philadelphia before
Yomirg here. At the offices or' the New-
York Americans yesterlav all knowl
j edge of Johnson 's coming or of his;
I plans was denied.
Another purpos 1 of Johnson's visit
is said to be the ttansi'er of the stock
in the Yanki'es owned by William S.
Dev-ery. Th ■ latter, it is stated, has
tired of baseball, aad lost considerable j
money on the Jersey City drib, of the j
t International' League, last season. He j
is said to I>e willing to sell out his New-
York stock at a reasonable figure, -but.
from aii amounts, it is launel to re
raiu -rank -T. I'arrell as president of
II »e club. At the American league meet
ing 'ast week Farreil was elected a
•ueui'ber of the board of directors of the
eagiie. which in licates that he expects
to stay in base'oall.
