/mold Rothstein, whose name has
hetn mentioned in the case, made a
statement yesterday for the first time
Sfnee hia name was mentioned. lie
?aid; "I regret very much that I have
been unlucky enough to have been men?
tioned or approached in connection
with this outrageous 'fixing' affair by
some gamblers, but that's the penalty
of those in this business.
"I have now severed all connection

Stick to my real estate business and
my horses ard stables. H seems
strange that those who have been loud?
est in accusing me have rushed to their
lawyers. I have retained no lawyers,
because I am perfectly innocent' and
fear no prosecution. This whole affair
is disgusting and disgraceful, to say
the least. Far from having any con?
nection with the scandal, the fae'ts will
show I actually had much to do with
shewing the whoTe crooked business up.
As to this Manager Met? raw can tes?
Attcir* I-arryer Makes Statement
William J. Fall?n, counsel for Abe
Attell, who was said to have been as?
sociated with the gambling ring that
had agreed to pass $100,000 in bribes
to several White Sox players, said:
"When this case first came up Abe
Attell was looked upon as a real big
gambler. Now, it seems, he has sim?
mered down to nothing at all. If ha is
indicted by any chance he is perfectly
willing to go to Chicago, demand an
immediate trial, and be vindicated. 1
am sure he eventually will be vindi?
cated. When he goes to Chicago he will
be confronted by eight different stories
of that number of men. which I c'o not
believe will stand up before a jury.
"He will not stop to seek vindication
now by means of statements in reply to
attacks growing out of personal dif?
ferences. If they abandon criminal pros?
ecution proceedings because of their
inability to find a law to cover the situ?
ation, Attell will make a full statement
fr order to vindicate himself before
The feeling is general among the
gambling fraternity that Rothstein is
not involved in the controversy.
Numerous friends of Attell say that
he is angered at Rothstein because
of the latter's tendency to break away
from the gambling circles in which
Attell is known to move. A storv went
the rounds yesterday that ten New
York gamblers associated with Abe
Attell made $'250,000 out of last year's
Keinie Zimmerman, formerly of the
Giants, vehemently denied McGraw's
accusation that he was dropped from
the team because of alleged overtures
to Renny Kauff to throw games. The
reason he was not playing this season,
lie said, was because McGraw wanted
him to sign a contract for a smaller
salary. He said that he had documents
to prove his assertion.
"If McGraw is correctly quoted." he
said at his home, at 490 East 167th
Street, "he i -? a liar, and he knows it.
Kauff was the first who* brought the
stain of fixed baseball to New York.
Through my whole career in organized
baseball I have never made a deliberate
misplay or a deliberate error, and no?
body knows that better than McGraw.
If anybody is n liability to organized
baseball it is McGisrw himself."
Oil Men Said to Have
Lost 8100MOO in Plot
Cincinnati Prosecutor Takes
Tp Baseball inquiry: Hears
of Fraud Efforts Tkis Year
Special Dispatch to The Tribune
CINCINNATI. Sept. 30. - County
Prosecutor Capelle is investigating re?
ports that the plot to tix the 1919 world
scries games may have been laid pri?
marily to fleece a group of Texas mill?
ionaires in this city. The Texas oil
?tuen are reported to have lost $100.000
fjboiting on the games. According to
Mthe reports the plot may have been
jflaid after news reached here that, the
Texans were on then' way to this city
to bet their money.
M r. Cape lie announced to-day that.
be would go to Chicago to get infor?
mation there that might, link up with
the Cincinnati investigation. He ?aid
that he had also heard of alleged at?
tempts to tamper with Cincinnati play?
ers during the present season and if
the evidence justifies it would call a
special grand jury to make an inquiry.
Osw'.ii King, a sport writer who ac?
companied the oil men to Cincinnati,
is quoted as saying the Texans left
more than $82,000 in Cincinnati.
"After the first two cames I saw
four of the oil men make up a pot
of $30,000 in the lobby of the Sinton
Hotel and place it with a well known
Cincinnati gambler acting as betting
agent," he said. "A Cincinnati busi?
ness man mingled with the oil men
in Cincinnati, and one of the Texans
taid he went into a poo! with them.
"Dick Kerr, a personal friend of
mine, was very angry after winning his
first game, which was the third one of
the serie-, ; : aid to me 'they never
played as rotten behind me before, and
? don't understand it.'
"The Texans had much trouble in
keeping gamblers out of their craps
games. A tight occurred one night be
' cause two professional gamblers who
started an argument when they were
refused admittance to the game."

Earlier in the day Robinson said: "I

in the papers of the reported attempts
to tamper with our players. Of one
thing, however, I am sure, and that is
that. I have not been approached by any
gamblers, and it is certain that none
of my players has been approached.
Neither I nor any of the. players are
afraid of questioning.
"I have not been able to get in touch
with all my players to-day, because
there was no game, but 1 will have

Mr. Lewis, after questioning the
three players, said: "1 want it plainly

have been able to find out there is not
a breath of suspicion against any mem?
ber of the Brooklyn team. What we
want to find out is whether any of them
has been approached by any gamblers.
It is the gamblers we are after."
It could not be learned whether any
gamblers are scheduled to appear be?
fore the District Attorney for question?
ing, although it was said that the same
clique who were involved in last year's
world scries also had attempted to cor?

hnve no doubt that 90 er cent of tha
minor leagues would favor such a su?
pervising power. They distrust the
National Commission as it exists and
1 do not blame them. They have rea?
son to believe thai the rulings of the
piesent board are not disinterested.
Suspicious of Commission
"The helplessness of the National
Commission in the present crisis
proves my contentions. When rumors
of Die crookedness of the last world's
serie; came to us we could not do
much without being suspected of hav?
ing ulterior motives of some sort. They
might claim that we were persecuting
"As a matter of fact, that was
charged. As the commission stood at
Die time it was composed of Ban John?
son, president of the American League;
Garry Herrmann, owner of a National
League club and myself, president of
the National League.
"K 'his investigation had been con?
flu? hy a body of that sort there
wouid be all sorts of charges made
against us, no matter wftit we could
prove. and we never were able to
prove anything against this series. It
is the greatest good fortune that thin
investigation is in the hands of those
men out in Chicago.
"They will see ?t through. \ am
quite confident that before they finish
they will have the. evidence to convict
the gamblers that, caused all this,
those slimy creatures who dragged
those players into the dust with their
talk of the easy money to be made.
"We must do something quickly and
if. must be no little thing to aid in
the rehabilitation of baseball, but we
can do nothing with the present Na?
tional Commission. We must strengthen
the public's confidence in our sin?
cerity. I have enough work to do in
handling the affairs of my own league.
I do not want to interfere with the
work of others.
"The new ruling body is the only
preventive measure I can think of. Our
secretive policies have hurt us. I want
everything connected with baseball to
come out in the open hereafter. The
new ruling body of baseball must he
entirely frank and open."
No Row With Johnson
The president of the National
League hanged his fist down on his
desk as he recommended that he and
his colleagues he shorn of their abso?
lute power over big league baseball.
He did not say whether or not he had
consulted with Ban Johnson in regard
to the revolution he advocated. But it
was the frankest interview that ever
was given out by a baseball magnate.
"1 want to correct the impression
that Ban Johnson and I had any quar?
rel over this investigation," he said.
"At first we both believed that the
-cries was on the level. Comiskey
himself sent for me after the second
game and said to me: 'John, I think
there is something the matter with my
team. These trames look bad to me.'
"I studied the games carefully and yet.
I could see nothing suspicious about
them. I spoke to Ban Johnson about
Ci niskey's fears, and he, like myself,
thought that the crames were being
played cm their merits. There was a
delicate situation there, baseball poli?
ties, Comiskey and Johnson not being
on speaking terms.
"It was not until midsummer that
Johnson and I became convinced that
there was corruption in the world's
series of 101th We became convinced
after my investigation of the case of
Lee Mag'ce. But we could get. nothing
tangible, no real evidence- Then came
the reported fixing of the Cubs-Phillies
game and D is grand jury came to tho
rescue of baseball.
"It is bitter to learn tho truth, but
it is the salvation of baseball. I sat
with tins gland jury, and if \ am any

Blames Gambling Ring
"There was a big gambling ring be?
hind this corruption of the world's

gambling ring operating on independ?
ent, games here and there does not
exist. I have investigated the stories
o? big betting on the Cubs-Phillies
? game of August 31 and I find very little
corroborative evidence. There were
1 no vast sums bet on that game, either
in Detroit or Cincinnati.
"The charge? that attempts have been
made to reach players in the coming
world's scries are false. The man or?
men who started these rumors ought'
to be shot. But I suppose that the air
will lie eharjred with rumors of crook?

I you can rest assured that they will be

"One Sunday, just before this thing ;

CHICAGO, Sept. 30.?All doubt that
the grand jury inquiry into baseball
crookedness is to be carried through
tc its logical conclusion was dis?
pelled to-day by a statement from Chief
Justice Charles A. McDonald, of the
"The investigation is to be continued
without interruption," said Judge Mc?
Donald. "The true bills voted so far
will be returned in the form of indict?
ments in due time. The law covers the
crime committed adequately. Pall
players and all the others Involved in
crooked work will be indicted, prose?
cuted and punished. The present grand
jury will be constituted into a special
body Saturday and will continue its
inquiry. These are the facts. State?
ments to th." contrary may be accepted
Asked about the reported statement
of State Attorney Maclay Hoyne that
the evide.ice so far did not warrant
indictments. Judge McDonald said he
believed the prosecutor had been mis?
"1 have had complete and constant
cooperation from tho State Atorney's
office since the inception of the investi?
gation," said the judge. "In my opinion
Mr. Hoyne was simply misquoted on

question in his mind than in mine that

Investigation To Re Pushed
"The investigation, far from being
ended, still ha3 much to accomolish.
To this end the present grand jury
will be incorporated as a special body
Saturday and will go ahead until it has
sifted down the evidence to the last
incriminating fact. Every suspicious
game which has been played within the
last eighteen monihB in either league
will be within the purview of investi?
gation. Because of the statute of limi?
tations that is as far back as the jury
can go. Otherwise it would go even
"There need ho no doubt about the
prosecution of guilty players and their
co-conspirators. None of those who
have. confessed has been granted im?
munity; in fact, each has specifically
waived it. Of course, it, will be nat?
ural for the prosecution to take into
consideration services which the in?
dicted men have performed for the
state, but that, does not mean they will
"The legal proposition is sound.
These men hatched a conspiracy in the
Warner Hotel t? throw the world
series, and did throw it. In so doing
they not only obtained monev under
false pretenses from Charles A. Com
iskey, owner of the team, but they
victimized their team mates out of
about $1,000 each the extra amount
which they would have shared if the
White Sox had won the series."
August Herrmann, president of the
Cincinnati Reds, laut year's pennant
winners, and former chairman of the
National Baseball Commission, and
Clyde Elliott, a motion picture man, who
aided Charles Comiskey, president of the
Chicago White Sox, in his investigation
of the series, have been summoned to
testify before the grand jury. It was
also reported that efforts would be made
to obtain statements from two addi?

Fixing, To Be Stopped
Judge McDonald's statement followed
a conference with members of the
State Attorney's staff. Those pres?
ent at the conference were Eirst As?
sistant State Attorney Raber and
Assistant. State Attorney Lightfcot
and Hartley Replogle. At the conclu?
sion Mr. Replogle. issued the following
"Congress should pass an act making
it a felony by any one to offer a hrib?
or a gratuity to any baseball playei
playing interstate ball to play our na
tional game other than on its merits
and also making it a felony for an;
such player to accept such u bribe o
gratuity. Pet Congress act."
It is practically certain that this rec
ommendation will be incorporated ii
the final report of the grand jury.
As far as the grand jury is con
cerned, it was made plain by Eorcma^
Henry H. Brigham that it wants to so
! the investigation through to the finisr
There are at least two oifforen
? counts on which each of the Whit
I Sox ball players named in true bill
I voted by the grand jury may be pros?
j cuted, according to Alfred S. Austria!
; attorney for Charles A. Comiske;
owner of the White Sox.
Counts for True Bills
The first count mentioned by M
Austrian is the one in the true bills, i
which they are charged with conspirin
to do an illegal act. Without questic
the public paid admission prices to Sf
honest baseball played, and the coi
spira'-y to throw the ?ames thereby
cheated the public. The second count J
that the men conspired to injure he
property of Comiskey. which COTUniWO
of contracts worth more than fZW.WW.
the drawing power of th" team to at?
tract, crowds to games and other lossei
of good will, which Mr. Austrian esti?
mates at $300,000. ?
"In entering into this conspiracy. ,
said Mr. Austrian, "the players have I
destroyed $000,000 worth of Coinis
key's property. Rill Veeck, president
of the Cuhs, said to me in th'* office;
that he would have given Comiskey
$75,000 for Buck Weaver's release prior ?
to the exposure, but that now he would
not have him on the team.
"Comiskey hold th*? contracta of
these men, whose trading values were |
more than $200,000. All that, is lost
to him, and more, for his drawing pow
er, or, rather, the drawing power of
the White Sox team, is now temporari- :
ly lost. It is no different than if :
$500,000 worth of property belonging
to a department store should have been
destroyed through a conspiracy."
