Club Owners Lose Money and a Rumor
Is Being Circulated That a Work
ing Agreement Will Be Formed by
Feds and Organized Baseball
Now York, Jan. 9. —Although the
new year opens with no signs of peace
on the baseball horizon there is a re
port circulating in the ranks of organ
ized baseball that some form of a work
ing agreement will be reached between
the Federal League and the major
leagues before the beginning of the
1915 pennant races. Both organized
and independent baseball is understood
to be awaiting the decision iu several
cases of players' contracts now before
the courts.
The leading officials of tho leagues
now opposed to eaioh other are chary
about being quoted regarding the pos
sibility of u peace pact but it is a well
established fact that the discussion of
plans to bring about the jeaired result
has not beeu dropped entirely. A ma
jority of the magnates are convinced
that another season of conflict such a.s
marked 1914 will prove disastrous from
» financial standpoint and must be
avoided if possible.
Just Which side will take the initi
ative depends upon the outcome ot' the
cases before the courts. Once final de
cision has been rendered and the vari
ous interests have learned their legal
rights and future line of action, a de
termined effort to reach an understand
ing may be expected. As pointed out
by a proniiuent club owner in a recent
private review of the situation, any
other attitude will .-pell financial di>
aster. Under the present conditions the
only person to benefit by the continu
ation of the baseball war is the base
ball player. While the magnates admit
that lie is a necessary aiijunet to the
business there is uo intention to turn
tho business profits over to him in tiheir
Tho extent to which the carrying of
a football handicaps the runner's speed
was the subject of an interesting dis
cussion at a recent meeting of gridiron
veterans. It was pointed out thait- al
most without exception iu a long sprint
down fielit after packing up a fumbled
ball, the runner is gained upon by pur
suing players although nut always o\er
taken, due to an advantage at the
ttart. It was the general opinion that
any given player could sprint the 100-
vards of the football fieM' from a sec
ond to a second and a half faster with
out the ball then when carrying the
leather. Several coaches who w ere pres
eat stated that they would experiment
under both conditions next autumn iu
order to test their theories.
That the proposed tour of South
America by major league baseball teams
during the winter of 1915-16 will be
a financial success and boom for the
sport south of the equator is the con
tident prediction made by several Amer
ican business men conversant with con
ditions throughout the southern con-,
tinent. Baseball is frequently played |
by Americans residing in the principal
cities of Chile, Peru, Argentina and
other South American countries. These
games never fail to attract the natives
who watch the play with interest. The
younger generations are taking to the
game and already play fair baseball,
leagues composed of native players arc
predicted within t>he next ten years
und speaking on this point a returned
American said recently:
"In the natural course of evolution,}
the intricacies of American baseball!
will be masteretd, and the national pas
time transplanted south of the Panama
Canal. Climatic condition* ar« as fa
\ orable to the success of baseba'l in
South America as in the United States,
while the interest shown there in oth
er sports shows the existence of embryo
baseball fans. I am certain that in
time amateur base<ball will be followe i
by the professional league and it is not
a dream to imagine that some day
South America will send a team north
for a real world's series.
Norman S. Faber, former Brown
University mile runner and now a
Rhodes scholar and member of the relay
team at Oxfoid University in writing
of uuiergraduaite life at the English
University states:

This is her system of athletics an I
which provides exercise anil competition

Oxford men, almost without exception,
take part in outdoor games of some

and the value of the university teams,

In a list of eighteen intercollegiate
I sports in which eastern colleges and
I universities competed during 1914
eight won championship honors. Cornell
r and Harvard are tied with five each
-with Columbia uext with tahree and
f j Princeton following with two.
The abandonment of the famous
I English Henley Regatta for 1915 will
leave the principal trophy, the Grand
Challenge Cup, in .America for another
year at least. The classic prize for
eight oared crews was won by the Har
vard university's second crew last sum
mer air i under ordinary conditions
would have been returned for competi
' tion again this spring in accordance
r with the deed of gift which made the
Grand Challenge Cup a perpetual prize.
1 This tro>phy, the oldest and most fa-
I mous of the six Henley awards, was do
, [ nated in ISS9. the initial year of tho
regatta. It anti-dates all other trophies
' ! aiiir has been raced for each year since
the first contest more than seventy
* ; live years ago. Although won by Bel
gium and Australian crews in past
"'years it is a strange coincidence that
! the first break iu the annual regatta
should come the season following the
( j triumph of an American eight.
' According to Harry Hiilman, ath
-4 letic trainer at Dartmouth Co'lege, it
' will be fully twenty years before any
'European nation can hope to compete
successfully against the American ath
lete. Hiilman, a famous runner and
'! member of Olympic teams in his com
petition days, stated that in his opinion
' the European war and the advanced
'! training system and methods in vogue |
" in America formed hanidHca;>s that
would prevent the foreign athlete from
reaching the general standard main
tained in this country lor a score of |
years at least.
An umpire in close, tou.'h with base- ■
' ball conditions throughout the country I
forecasts a great season of prosperity
in the National sport in 1915. He
says: "I umpire in different places,
1 where there is lots of different kinds of j
business, and have a chance to hear.;
Employe and employer give their dif-l
ferent view in regard to conditions in j
their business and as viewed through
out the country, and all admit that j
business has been on a steady decline
the past three years, and reached its i
lowest ebb in 1914. In speaking with!
those people and asking them to givej
their views in regard to business and
relation to the decline in attendance at
the baseball parks, the past season au»t j
almost to a man tliev will ntft mention [
the Federal League, but will tell you
that business has been so dull that they
cannot spare the money to go to ball '
games very often, as they need their |
, money for real necessities.
''That is the answer that the mag-j
nate must not overlook iu shaping his
plans for 1915; and in shaping his 1
plans he must remember that owing to i
the European War, the business men of j
this country are planning for one of
the greatest years of prosperity ever
known in the country. Business is al
ready oil the upward bound, and busi
ness will bp on the boom by next spring.
Now, when the baseball fan is working
steady he feels that he can afford to
i think and enjoy his favorite pastime,
and send some of his family once in a
while arnl let them have a little enjoy
ment. With this increase in patronage!
the big leagues can afford to go out in
1915 and buy and draft more players
tharf they have th e past season. Tho
minor league club owner, with the sale
of players and increased patronage, i
will have a chance to recuperate some!
, of the looses of the past season, as he
; is bound to have a very successful sea
| son in 1915."

Bout With Jess Willard at Juarez
March «—Whit# Man Gets
but 915,000
New York, Jan. 9.—Jack Johnson
and Jesse Willard will meet in a 45-
round bout for the heavyweight cham
pionship of tlie world at Juarez, Mexi
co, on Saturday, March 6, next. Final
arrangements to this effect were made
here yesterday after other bids were re
ceived from Havana, Cuba aud Tia
juana, Mexico.
Johnson lias been guaranteed J30,-
000. win, lose or draw, while Willard
has been assured a minimum of $15,-
000, aud may receive a much larger
sum bv sharing interests in tho affair
with Jack Curlev, the chief promoter,
and his associates.
Other offers to stage the bout came
from Billy Gibson, of this city, repre
senting a syndicate that was desirous
of taking the bout to Havana, Cuba,
and Jim Coffroth, the California pro
moter, who wished'to have it held near
Tiajuana, Mexico. Curley and the oth
er men interested believed, however,
that the assurances of financial back
ing and concessions made by the Mex
ican officials and several business men
of El Paso, Tex., for the Juarez propo
sition promised better results.
The bout will take place in the Juar
ez race track, and the management of
the race track promised suspension of
racing for a few days, if necessary,
to facilitati tho erection of stands
there for the accommodation of specta
When Johnson signed the articles a
few weeks ago in Europe, Curley hand
ed him SI,OOO for expenses, and yes
terday 31,00 more was cabled to him
at Buenos Aires, from which port he
will sail to-day on his way to Juarez.
Jess Willard, who has been in this
city for a few days past, will leave to
day with his manager. Torn Jones, for
a brief stay at Excelsior Springs, Mo.,
an dthen proceed to El Paso, where he
will finish his training for the contest,
and then proceed to El Paso, where he
about January 25, in all probability,
and expects to weigh about 230 pounds
when he enters the ring.
Johnson and his handlers will estab
lish training quarters at Juarez as soon
as he arrives there.
The $2,000 which has been given to
Johnson for traveling and training ex
penses will not be deducted from his
guarantee of $30,000.
