' 'Stuffy' Mclnnes, of the Athletics ii
easily the best first sacker in the Ameri
can League, barring possibly Hal Chase,
and last svason he played much better
'jail than the Peerless Hal."
The foregoing statement, published re
cently m an Eastern newspaper by a
ell-known expert, got a good healthy
rise" out of Clark Griffith yesterday.
mid, incident!, opens up a channel for
Monty of arguments pro and con.
There is no discounting the fact that
Mclnnes is a grand little ballplaier and
i great first baseman, but is he a better
il'-around man than GandllT
Itatting averages show that Jlclmics
hit better thjn our own Chick, but the
'.ist named put It all oer Stuffy in fleld
ng Mclnnes links Gandll's reach, and
is no where near Chick's -qual when It
-omes to digging the ball out of the dirt
-in low throwns.
Clark Griffith himself says, "t)h. es,
1 admit that Mclnnes is a great first
tuseman. but if it came) to a show-down
nd I liad my choice. I would grab Chick
Gandil s timely batting last season won
many games for the Nationals. In a
pinch, Gandil probably came through
more often than did Mclnnes.
There is really little to choose between
the pair, but if Gandil puts up the game
This season in evidence last summer,
capital fans will be perfectly satisfied.
George Tidden in Capital.
George Tidden, one of the oldest and
tnst known baseball writers in New
loifc a member of the New York World
staff, is in Washington for a brief visit.
In speaking of Frank Chance and the
HmhUiiders. Jlr. Tidden says:
I don't know what salary Farrell is
paiing Chance. In fact none of the
it wspaper men Know, but no matter
w hat the amount happens to be. Chance
is worth eery cent He will give New
ork a winner before he has been on
tb job many jears and I should not.be
surprised if the Highlanders finished
near the top of the second division this
Vicx)rdinc to Mr Tidden. the High
1 -ders will be a gtrat drawing card
nder Chance, especially in New York,
.in the Polo Grounds where the club will
pla Its games, is much easier of access
han was the old park way out In
Harmony and the Tigers.
If the report published yesterdav that
'inner Frank Nain, of the Detroit
""igers. had capitulated and agreed upon
the demands of T Cobb for a salary of
i;,eoo a year, there is little chance for
liarmonj In the ranks of the Detroit ball
ib this season and Manager Jennings
will have his work cut out for him to
eep peace In the family.
It Is said that Owner Nain is turning
Sown all requests for salary increases
made by other plaers on his pay roll
in order that the club can meet the de
mands of Cobb. Just imagine what this
cfTect will have on the team as a whole,
providing, of course, the report is true,
which we very much doubt, as Owner
N'avin has stated right along that he
would not submit to exorbitant salary
demands from his star, and Navin is too
shrewd a business man to turn down
reasonable requests for more money
made by players who deserve increases.
Joe Jackson to Leave lis.
Joe E. Jackson, sporting editor, of the
Post since 1910, and president of the
Baseball Writers Association, handed in
his resignation last Monday and leaves
in a few days to become sporting; editor
of The Detroit News-Tribune.
Mr. Jackson is one of the ablest base
ball writers in the country. During bis
stay in Washington he made a host of
friends, who will wish him the best of
Mr Jackson came here from Detroit,
where he still enjoys great popularity.
His friends in Washington aU hate to
see him leave. Good luck, Joe, old boy.

One Favorite Comes Home in Front

Juarez. Jlaxlco, Feb. 4. Galene Gale
was the only pronounced first choice to
score this afetrnoon, and the bookmakers
had much the best of It. The purse race

brought out a good field of sprinters and
resulted in a. victory for Gold of Ophlr,

the favorite, was second, and Lack Rosa
Blaze, winner of the first race, fur

Inc up of such a trophy
The penchant of the "Honey Boy" Is
the giving of cups to ballplayers. Five
years ago, in 190S. he hung up his first
trophy for the batting1 champion of the
world. The Initial year it became the
property of John "Honus" Wagner, the
stellar shortstop of the Pittsburgh "Pi
rates." Four times since this, number
of prizes have been captured by Ty Cobb,
or the Detroit American league team.
The generosity of the "Honey Boy"
In the giving of cups has not been con
nned this year to the major leagues.
Trophies of this nature are now the
property of Danny Kerwin and "Looey"
Blerbauer, champion batsmen, respec-
tUebr. of the Three I and Canadian
leagues. In the spring the happy "Honey
Ecy will give a cup to the leading Dats-
man of the Pacific Coast League. Next

boost. In fact, the biggest boost ever
given the game since the organization
of the amateur commission.
That this radical change, regarding the
abolishing of the commission and vesting
all the power In the board of governors
will be adopted by the members of the
commission at this meeting is practically
assured. Several of the leading lights
In sand lot baseball were questioned yes
terday as to their stand in the matter,
and all replied faorab!y.
This change wilt put amateur baseball
on a much higher plane than the one
which it holds at the present time. There
will be no more petty battles at a meet
ing of the commission; there will be no
more "lobbying:" this favoritism will be
set aside and the officials will be able to
keep their heads above water for a little
while, at least.
It is true that a new code of rules
were drafted last year, but they were
not kept. One rule, supposed to be the
strongest in the constitution, regards
the return of the men who have played
professional baseball after June L
This rule was broken repeatedly by
the commission last 3 car. Any old ball
player at all, who had been let out by
a minor league club, could come home,
apply for reinstatement, and it would be
granted him at once And yet there are
several members of the commission who
will not vote for tho proposed change In
the constitution and by-Isws.
The entire matter can be sumed up
as follows: Three men will now control
amateur baseball, where It was left to
ten or fifteen In the past three men
who will do the work of a dozen. No
more' battles at a commission meeting;
no favoritism shown any one. and last,
but not least, no ball players reinstated
who return to the District after June 1.
It is up to the members of the com
mission to adopt or reject this change,
and while two or three may not see
their way clear to give up the glory
for the time being, when ths meeting
is held, it will more than likely be tne
scene of the passing away of ts
amaeur commission, and the formation
of the Association of Amateur Baseball
Clubs of the District of Columbia.
.Snnday School Leasoe Meet.
A meeting of the Sunday School
League was held last night at the resi
dence of Its president. W. O. Cornelius,
1303 Sixth Street NorthwesL Four clubs
were granted franchises, namely. Sher
wood. Nativity. Lincoln Avenue, and
North Carolina. When seen last night
President Cornelius stated that a
new playin field has been se
cured for the league this year,
and that the 1913 season will be
tho best ever of a Sunday School League
In this city.
When questioned regarding tho propos
ed change in the constitution. President
Cornelius said: "I think that the three
man rule will be a good thing for
amateur baseball, but I think that none
of these men should be connected with
baseball in any way whatsoever, as a
member of a league or sporting associa
tion of any kind.
"Last year we had a lot of needless
arguments, and with this new rule in
vogue, a lot of that will be dispensed
with, but I would like to see three men.
not interested In any league or house
handle the affairs of the amateurs." con
tinued the Sunday School League official.
Tram Trophy Offered.
Prof. Joyce, .of the Carroll Institute
track team, stated last night that a
Iiandsome sll.'er loving cup will bo given
to the team cr college scoring the most
number of points In the Carroll Institute
ten-mile marathon here Februjry S.
As the event Is sanctioned by the A. A.
U.. it is understood that many of our

lagher, the Georgetown star, will more
than likely be one of the starters, while,
a team of ten mon from Carroll Institute

Cnp for Amateur.
George "Honey Boy" Evans, of min
strel fame, may give a silver lovllng cup
as an additional prize to the team win
ning the amateur championship of the
Dlstrict-thla season. A wire was received
stating that Evans has the matter under
consideration, and that as soon as lie

make known his decision.
Tho "Honey Boy" has given several
cups to the leading tatters in tho dif
ferent leagues, but this will be tho first

The local sandlotters can count on re
ceiving a handscme prlzo should Evans
decide to add a cup to the banner now
given as a trophy.
