"KNOCKOUT" MARS, OF CINCINNATI,
COURT DECISION MAY SEND
. JOHNSON TO FEDERALS
Washington Twirlcr Now Has Signed Two Contracts and
Promised to Play in Two Places at Once Out
$ laws Will Probably Seek Injunction

The reeding ot
Walter Johnson, the speed emperor of
Iho American League, In In a most un
enviable position. If the Klllefer ease
can bo taken da a criterion, Clark Clrlf
tllli will hnvo his leading pitcher back
on his baseball club In MS; but the Fed
eral Lngue la sure to make n fight ft'
the man who Jumped back to organ
ized baseball. No mntter which way the
matter Is dacldcd. Walter Johnson's repu
tation will not recelvo any (treat boost
by his double-crossing the "outlaws," At
the present time Johnson has his signa
ture attached to two contracts which
provide that ho do the same thins In dlf
1 Afferent cities at the eamo time. When a
baseball player, or any one else, gets Into
it deal ot that character he Is sure to
suffer. Johnson lost a lot of preatlgo
at Washlngt6n last summer when ho ni
, . . ,,.. v-nu.- d.i iiin nuhilp
beaUHMV few times. Now that the public
reallzcs trtlriwsreally cares nothing for
tho Washington Club and that ho rc-
hurdled the fence of organized baseball
because ho thought ho was legally bound
to the Nationals, that same public Is not
scheduled to go Into ecstacles over IW
Bill Klllefer. the Phllly catcher. Jumped
to tho Federal League about a year ago,
along with Tom Seaton, Addle Drcnnan
and Otto Knabo. BUI had hardly hit
"outlaw" soil before ho bounded back
Into tho real organized baseball. Klllefer,
like Waltor Johnson, was not under con
tract with a club of organized baseball,
but he was held In subjection by tho 10
day clause. When tho case waa argued
lathe courts of Grand Rapids, Mich., tho
Phillies won. However, tho Judge who
hartded down the opinion In tho case
remarked, parenthetically, that organ
ized baseball had not come Into court
"With clean hands." While these two
cases are very Blmllar, they differ at the
present moment. In that tho Klllefer case
was taken Into court In the form of n
motion to dissolve tho Federal League
Injunction, which forbado Klllcfer'a play
ing; In organized baseball, on the ground
that he had signed a Federal League
contract This same thing may happen
to Johnson. Tho Federals will probably
enjoin Johnson from playing witn Wash
ington. In that event, a motion to dis
solve the Injunction may be refused, be
cause the technical points In the cases of
Klllefer and Johnson arc somewhat dif
ferent. Furthermore, another Judge
might refuse to dissolve an Injunction
based on these grounds, even though the
cases were Identical.
Dr. Charles A. Richmond, president of
Union College, recently denounced foot
boll In scathing terms before a Chicago
audience. He can hardly be blnmed for
his Judgment on tho merits of the Ameri
can college pastime If he had to see
Union play every Saturday.
Jim Coffee, the "Dublin Giant." Is said
to be one of the few boxers who Is well
posted on current events. That Is far
from strange in Jim's case, as he was a
motorman three years ago.
Progress Is Impossible unless precedent
la occasionally Ignored. For 35 years the
Ranking Committee of tho United States
Lawn Tennis Association placed the win
ner of the national championships at the
head of the list. In most of the cases
it was agreed by the majority that the
choice was correct, regardless of the title.
This year McLoughlln waa beaten by the
local crack, It. Norrls Williams, at New
port, The Ranking Committee very
properly placed McLoughlln at the top of
the ranking list, regardless of precedent,
whlph would have given Williams the
place. Any one who has followed tha
careers of the California!! and the Phlla
delphlan realize that the latter Is far
frorn being- the finished performer that
the former U. While Philadelphia would
b glad to have as one of Its citizens the
bes$ tennis player In the country, It does
not want tha honor If It is not deserved.
In his latest newspaper article Jlathew

fectly good machine a feat which Matty
found excessively difficult.
The Catholic High bosketbatl team has
agreed to meet St. Joseph's College. For
some time it appeared that these teams
WQUld not meet owing to the disagree
ment on the question of eligibility. Pro
fessor Qreer, of Catholic High, contends
the.t If his team Is to play St. Joseph's,
the. latter should limit the time for play
ers participating In all branches of ath
letics to four years. The students of
Catholic High can play only four seasons,
-while It Is possible for an athlete at St
Joseph's to play eight years. This dis
agreement caused the severing of ath
letic relations between the two institu
tions In 191X rrofessor Greer Is, no
doubt, correct In his argument for a, cut
in HC Joseph's time limit, but he has
taken a broad-minded view ot the situ
ation, and has decided that his boys may

Cruelty to birds Is not always caused
by indifference to their sufferings. A case
In point Is the slaughter of migratory
birds around lighthouses, which has long
been believed to result from tho birds
being dazzled by the great light mid con
sequently filing round and round until
they dashed themselves against the plate
glass or fell exhausted Into the sen. Hut
a Dutch naturalist lefuscd to credit this
explanation. He believed that the birds
remained within the glaring light because
they could not see beyond It. In an Inter
esting experiment he proved he was right.
Ho had perches of a circular nature
strung about a light, and the result was
remarkable. Hundreds of birds which
would otherwise 'have perished flapped
about In the light until they gained n
' Pcrc" where they remained until day-

Boxing Is a dead Issue In California now
Last week the death knell was sounded,
and there was a general exodus of fight
promoters and hchters. It mlcht be In
teresting nt this time to know that tho
bantamweight championship was the Inst
title to change hands In California,
"Johnny" Coulon losing to "Kid" Wil
liams. There haVo been other fights slnco
then, but not of a championship sort.
Among the many bouts between big
men decided In San Frnnclsco In tho
last twelve 5 cars tho following may
be mentioned: Jim Jeffries knocked
out Boh Fltzslmmons In eight rounds.
This was In 1902, Just four jears after
Fltzslmmons had lost the champion
ship to tho big bollermaker nt Coney
Island In eleven rounds. Jack Mun
roo lasted only two rounds with Jef
fries in the following year, and in
1905 Jeffries retired, but only temporar
ily. Jack 'O'Brien vnnqulshcd Fltz
slmmons nt Snn Francisco In twelve
rounds that same jcur, and In 1900
Tommy Burns, who was tho recog
nized successor of Jeffries, defeated
Mnrvln Hart In twenty rounds, Tweho
months after that Burns defeated Jacl
O'Brien In a twenty-round bout at
Los Angeles, and knocked out BUI
Squires in n single round at Col ma
In 1907, whero two years later Stanley
Ketchel was knocked out In twelve
rounds by Jack Johnson. Tho last of
tho big bouts was that between Gun

Hans Had Appointment
With President Baker To
day, But Does Not Put in
Hans Lobcrt wus to report to Presi
dent W V. Baker, of the Philadelphia
Nationals, this afternoon to talk over
his contract tot 1915. But Hans was In
Chlcngo, presumably tnlkliiR over the
Federal Lcaguo offer with Weeshmann,
of tho Chlfeds, nnd Gllmore. At the
Phillies' office today thero was no news
of Lobert ecopt that he did not show
up at the appointed hour.
Just what President Daltcr and the
other oftlclals of tho Philadelphia club
think of Lobcrt's attltuda toward the
'outlaws-' Is a difficult matter to answer.
They nre not talking on tho subject ex
tensively. However, there seems to po a
feeling of confidence at local headquar
ters that Lobert will eventually turn
down tho Federal League offer and re
main. Hans Is held by the Phillies only
ns a reserve player; that Is, his playlng;
contract has run out
According to the latest reports, Lobert
will be In Philadelphia tomorrow after
noon. "Cap" Nell, the Phllly scout, will leave
the next two davs for his home In Louis
ville, Ky. After spending the holidays
there he will go to St. Petersburg, Fla..
to prepare the camp for the Phillies. All
the plans for the. Phillies Southern trip
have been arranged. Business Manager
Shetsllne has stayed away from the pre
cincts of tho Glcnolden Fire Department
long enough to make up n dally schedule
for the Phllly players on the boat be
tween New York and Jacksonville. It Is
understood that "Shets" will refuse all
visitors nn audience on the boat when
she lilts the rough spots of Cape Hat

Secretary of State Game
Commission Says There Is
Need of an Effort to
Save the Feathered Ones.
By JOSEPH KAIiBFUS
Becretary Stale name Commission.
"Pity tho needy and the helpless these
cold dnys," Is nn expression often heard,
nnd somo of thoio voicing this sentiment
mean Just what they say, and stand ready
to do what they can for those who may ho
BUfterliiB. To ninny men these words aro
meanlnslcsr, and so lone ns they them
selves aro melt fed and clothed they care)
not what may happen to others. Thei
poor, half-clad child on tho street corner,
blue mid Bhlvcring and starting, Is In- )
deed a pltlablo sight, hut tho mumbling:
of words of pity brings no, relief to such
n ono nt any time. You remember the
story of tho merchant wTlo while Jour
neying from Jerusalem to Jericho fell
among thictcs nnd was left wounded by
tho roadside. Tho priest, from whom be
cause of hla position most waa expected,
passed by on tho other side. Tho Levlto.
another of tho leaders of public thought,
failed to extend tho needed help. No
ono con had n kind word until a Samari
tan, from whom apparently nothing wan
expected, camo that way. You remember
what ho did nnd tho Master said, "Who
was neighbor to that man 7"
To bo wet and cold atid starving Is Indeed
a terrible thing for any creature, and perbapa
thcru la some excuae for men who almoin;
rebel against Ood when auch conditions are
forced upon them. Hate you ever seen men
on the vergo ot BtnrintlonT Havo you ever
seen tour-footed anltiala and birds starvlng7
If not, you may well bless Uod for sparing you
till ordeal. 1 lime seen both thcae conditions
and have been wet nnd cold and starving, and
know whereof I spealt, for I was In tho moun
tftlna of Colorado the winter of tho Chicago
fire when the snow fell unexpectedly to a
K-'at depth. Juat as It ell a law weeks ago.
Lamps with limited supplies were caught,
Kama could not be found, for weeks, and how
some of us lled the Almighty alone knows.
Tho snow that winter after falling to au
unusual depth Instead of disappearing under
the lnllufr.ro of the west wind, as was usually
the case, leaving tho south side of the moun
tains and tbe plains I urn so that grating
animals could feed, settled tn about 18 or 20
Inches, and then froze, forming a covering ot
heavy Ice, agaln3t which tbe winds were
"llefore enrlnglimn Kim. T mnvr fn nl
tho'.sards of cattle, and horses, and antelope,
anl elk dylne from starvation. For weeks
and months, iliy nnd night, I heard the Jow.
I Iteoua cull of horses and cattle begging for
that which could not ho Riven, calling, calling,
until not ono was loft 1 traveled amonic
herdn of antelope, with liere and thero an elk.
so emurlatcd that they hardly moved out ot
one s way, but no call for Help from men
came fiom these wild cieatures, no complaint,
no fenund at all, save perhaps a plaintive bleat
aa tbe rushing pack of wolves bop them
down. Have you ivcr noticed thi wild bird,
wounded almost t nto death, sitting on Ita
perch without n sound of coonnlnlnt, nothing
to Lreak tho ntlllnesn of Ita ivlreot, save the
tap, tap, tap of Its life-blood striking- on the
lenvis below 7 Have you ever seen tbe birds
starve? Well, 1 have, and 1 never see tho
slows como without Rofng back In memory to
those d,uva of long oko. and 1 como to you
now in this lttr In behnlf of the. birds and
he? of you to do romethlnc; ror them. Tbey
are wet, nnd cold, nnd hclpleps. Tho snows?
havo fallen. The bird! btve no stored aup-
flles. Tbey havo no fellows who. bettcrofC
han they, mltht give them even crumbs from
their- tabls They bavo no organized charities
to whom they csn turn for auccor. They must
bavo help or they will surely perish.
"You perhaps aro wasting; every day mors
than enough to keep tho btrjls In your commu
nity in food for many days, tuid I bee of you
to see to It that this Is done: Grain scattered
for Hob White or other earns birds, a, lump
of suet or fresh pork hung up In some place
where the downey woodpecker or tho kinglet or
the nuthatch may And it: crumba and email
seeds for the little ground feeding; birds, will
surely be appreciated by them In this, their
time ot need, and will brlns you a return
through the ltfework of these birds that can
not bo expressed In worda or figures. You may
not be able to do much In yourself, but you
can do soma little thine.
"1 have a friend in western Pennsylvania
who haa bis heart In the right place, and wh-it
the snow fell out there last week he used, his
telephone in starting bis neighbor ln tha work
of feeding Iblrds. Ono neighbor called to on
other unity tha whole community waa inter
ested. The Uoy Scouts took ui tbe call, and
the fields are now dally rilled with men and
boa, each one bent on showing tbrough works
that he truly pities tha needy and helpless
these cold days. Who will be neighbor to the
birds In, your community T A praynr or kindly
spoken word means something, for they may
reach sotha listening ear, but neither prayer
nor kindly feeling amounts to much without accompanying-
works, Ono. bushel of eraln placed
where Bob White and hja family can get-it
means more to them than alt tha kind, worda
that could be spoken in the country where they
are about to die of starvation."
