St, LOUIB Federals Hear That Athletic °S
Contract Holds—Slugger
Tried to Jump
fit. Louis, Mo., Dec. 11.—Federal
League officials were advised 'by their
Attorneys here yesterday that the con
tract of Frank Baker with the Athletic
Club is binding.
The St. Louis Club immediately noti
fied Baker that the deal wherclby he
was to come to the Terriers is off. Baker
applied for a job with the St. Louis
Feds some time ago. He said at the
time he would jump whatever his con
tract, as he believed if Miawk asked
waivers on him or traded him his con
tract became void. He had been toKL
this by attorneys and the St. Louis
officials also were so advised. They
told Baker they would take 110 chance
of a law suit awl had the contract in
vestigated by their own lawyers, with
yesterday's result.
Jimmy Austin, of Mie Brown", or
Hans «Loibert, of the Quakers, is now
being sought to fill the hole at third
for St. Louis.
Manager Fielder Jones wired the of
ficials yesterday that he ha<l notified the
Baltimore Ciu'b he would not exercise
iiis option of Chief Bender, under pro
viso that Baltimore does not oppose
his taking a certain pitcher ho wants
when the player is signed. This was
agreed to.

Turns Over Chair to Charles Ebbets for
a Time, but No More Busi
ness Is Done
New York, Dee. 11. —Charles H. Eb
bets, the squire of Flat'bush, had the
honor of usurping the chair of the Na
tional League while the magnates of
that institution dosed the parting para
graphs of the (business at their annual
meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria yester
day. Governor Tener, hurriedly called
home, tendered the chair to C. Holiday.
There was very little business left
when President Tener resigned the
throne, and that little was disposed of
as laboriously as possible. The ques
tion before the house dealt with the
proposition of waivers. It has been
suggested that claims for release of
players might not t>e recalled when
once asked. No action was taken.
It was agreed by the National mag
nates that the ,-oster limit recently
adopted would not include uniformed
men not actively engaged in the game.
In other words, bench managers or lead
ers who do not appear regularly in the
real contests will not count. Nor will
coaches who take no active part in the
scheduled games.
The league went on record as op
posed to any change in the prevailing
conditions of the world's series. Nine
fames too unwieldy,
t was decided that the clubs be allowed
to carry their present rosters up to May
1, next, when every one will have to
come within the limit of twenty-one
Hail With Joy Announcement That
Freeman Has Baching
York, Pa., Dec. 11.—The anounce-
Tiieni, that Buck Freeman has the hack
ing for a Tri-Stato cluib in York is
bailed with much joy among the fans
of this city.,
It is believed that there will be no
trouWle to put a club in the field here
during tho coming season. When the
Tri-Stnte club left York and went to
Lancaster last year there WM talk
among the business men of getting an
early start for the coming season and
putting a team in the field upon a solid
basis, so there would be no more anxie
ty about finding money to finance the
club. It is believed that those same
men will lead in the movement toward
the organization of a new club.

Intends to Startle Baseball World With
Further Deals
Ohicago, Dec. IX.—'President Com
iskey, of the White Sox, has fuses at
tached to another 'bomb or two whose
explosion) will stai'tle the 'baseball world
almost as much as his purchase O'f Eddie
Collins did.
An outfielder and third 'baseman of
stellar magnitude will be a&ded to the
Whilto Sox roster before spring, ac
cording to Comiskey. The clubs to which
the men belong will fix a price on their
services. Tlio question of management
will talce care of itself, he asserts, if he
can land the players 'lue is after. Com
iskev would not sita'to oJii.ially the
terms of the Collins deal, but declared
that the estimate of ?1 10,000 for the
purchase price and salary for five years
was much too low. When asked if

? 150,000 would cover both cash price
anil salary he said that was too high.
Comiakey will not say what addi
tional players he is after. One of them,
however, is 'believed to be Clyde Alilan,
the fleet centrefielder of t'he Washing
ton- chub. Another is Fritz Maisel, t'he
clever little third sacker of tihe New-

I Former Giant Gets Real Chance to
Make Good in Cincinnati
New York, Dec. 11.—Charley fHer
zog signed yesterday afternoon as
manager of the Cincinnati Beds for a
Period of two seasons. August Herr
mann's announcement came as no sur
prise to the fraternity. President and
manager had practically agreed upon
terms at the close of last season.
Herrmann, who has boon afflicted
with an excess of managers, decided to
give (Maryland's canteloupe king a real
chance to muke good. Herzog for sev
eral weeks Inst year was the mana
gerial sensation of the parent major
league. His club folded before mid
season. This perhaps was due to the
fact that the Kedlegs Buffered most
heavily from Federal League interfer
ence. The club was ro'tobed of no less
than eight of its stars.
The signing of Herzog completes the
complement of National League mana
gers for 1915. Miller Huggius, of the
Cardinals, and Fred Clarke, of the
Pirates, while still unsigned, have ac
cepted terms with their employers.
Unable to Bee Possibilities of Boy Who
Now Is a Star
Cincinnati, Dec. 11.—There are any
number of good I>all (players who once
were turned down by a major league
manager. Bill Doak, without "whom the
Cardinals would not have been in the
running last season, was a member of
the Cincinnati Beds for a few days, but
was released toy Hank O'Day. Now
that Hank is temporarily out of the
managerial game he doesn't mind tell
ing a few things, and he says thalt he
dropped Doak because he didn't seem to
have either strength or any high-class
pitching ability.
Other clubs have kept twirlers on
the chance of their developing. Had
Dcak been kept through 1912 and then
turned over to John Kling for instruc
tions in 1913 he probably would have
proved a prize. It pays to bo patient
with young ball players who show abil
ity 'but lack of finish. They will come
if tJiey get a chance. Doak is now one
of the Ijest pitchers in the old league.
It was Miller Huggins who displayed
patience with the youngster and waited
for him to develop.
