MATE MEETING TO BE
fIELD IN NEW YORK CITY
Graham Has Sent Out Notices Calling
Session for 3 P. M.—He Will Re
port on Progress Made in Suits to
Recover Bond Money
At a meeting of the Tri-dtate league
in New York City to-morrow President
George M. Graham will make a report
■on the progress of the suits to recover
the $2,000 bond posted by York and
Wilmington to stay in the league until
th*> close of the season. The money, ac
cording to report current in Harris
burg. will be used to pay back salaries
due the players from those teams.
These suits were the net result of
the informal meetings of the other mag
nates held in Philadelphia some time
ago. Financing the league for the 1915
campaign was also talked of but none
of the representatives would discuss the
meeting, preferring that the president
give out the "news." While President
Graham has sent out notices that the
meeting will be held it is not known
whether it will be the annual meeting
of the league or not. Formerly annual
meetings were held in February.
It will be a meeting without George
Heckert unless the former York-Har
risburg-Trenton manager attends the
session as a spectator and does a little
lobbying on the outside. The failure
of baseball in York still rankles in that
city, a wail from that city being re
printed from the York "Dispatch"' to
show how the meeting of the league is
looked upon in that city:
"The annual meeting of the Tri-
State League will be held in New York
City to-morrow at 3 o'clock in th*> aft
ernoon. Notices of the session have been
sent out to the representative of each
club by President George M. Graham
but no announcement is made in the
notification about th e object of the

meeting. York will not be represented
at tbp meeting and no effort will be
made by local men at this time to get
back into the league.
''lt is likely that a president will
be elected at this session and it is just
as probable that George Graham will
be the choice of those present. Graham
was pretty good to everybody but York
and Wilmington last year and it would
be rank ingratitude not to honor him
with the election. Of course, Graham
cares little for the $2,000 that accom
panies the office. A mere bagatelle!
"It is said that an effort will be
made at this meeting to get a big league
club to finance each member of the
organization. In this way it is hoped
to place the league on a paying basis
and lift the financial burden from the
shoulders of the present owners of the
teams. For the sake of those men now
owning franchises it is hoped success
attends the efforts of Graham and his
"But what about the men in York
and elsewhere who have year in an I
year o.it forked out good currency for
the maintenance of the league, with
nary a return? What about the staunch
supporters who for the past 10 years
have lost willingly every year to pro
vide sport for their home citiesf l\>
they get any consideration? Evidently
not. What's gone is gone, from the
looks of things. At least this is the

Welsh Has Too Much Respect for Mc-

Chicago, Dei-. B.—Packey McPar

to-day for the East, where they will

Packey McFsirland and Welsh have
met three times at a weight which al
ways favored the Briton. The first was
on February 21, 1908, at ten rounds
in Milwaukee, which Welsh lost bv a
decision. Later, July 4, 1908, they
met in a 25-round contest at Vernon,
*- aJ. The bout went the limit and was
a draw. McFarland, who was hot on
Welsh's trail, traveled to England,
and May ,10, 1910, they met over
the 20-round route before, the National'
S-porting 01 ub in London. The verdict i

the members over the decision that !
they have never been in the club since ;

DOOIN GIVEN NOTICE
Wants Unconditional Release From
New York, Deo. B.—"Charlie"
Dooin, erstwhile mauager of the Phil
lies and for fourteen years a catcher
for that club, has given his ten days'
notice to William F. Baker, president
of the club, it was announced here yes
terday. Dooin's premeditated jump was
forced on him, he says, by the refusal
of th© Philadelphia club to give him
his unconditional release after it drop
ped him as manager.
Dooin says that, he would catch for a
team in either New York or Brooklyn,
but nowhere else.
Dooin declared that Charles W. Mur
phy through securities held is merely
leasing out the Phillies and those os
tensibly in control had so little actual
power that he had wearied of the
"I am not eager to manage any
club, but am ready to catch and re
ports that 1 have decided upon what
club to go to are incorrect, because I

CLYMER MAY LEAD YANKS
Successful Minor League Manager Men
tioned as Probable N. Y. Pilot
New York, Dec. B.—William J. Cly
mer, manager of the Buffalo club of
the International League, and also a
member of the Brotherhood of Yankee
Managers, was in this citv Monday in
conference with officials of the Yaiikce
j club. Ho bus been often mentioned as
! 11 likely candidate to lead Frank 'Far*
| rell's club next season.
Clymer is one of the most successful
I 'ninor league loaders and us a former
: player knows lots of baseball. He re
, placed Ueorgo Stallings as manager in
| Buffalo and has turned out winners
1 there and in Columbus, Ohio, of the
I American Association. Clymer ig iui
aggressive leader and a coacher who is
more active than Hughey Jennings oa
llio lines and almost as funny as "Ger*
; many" Schaefer at best. Patrons of the
Yankees would thus be assured of en-
I tertainment, whether they saw the
home team win or not, if Clymer gets
I the position.
