NATIONAL LEAGUE MEETING STARTS AT N Y. TODAY
The much-talked-of and long
deferred trade by which Joe Tin
ker is to go to Cincinnati as man
ager may be pulled off daring the
meeting of the National League,
which starts in New York today.
Garry Herrmann is hotter after
the Cub shortstop than ever and
will use every lever at his com
mand to pry Joe Ipose from the
clutches of Charley Murphy
Herrmann is still sore over the
deal Murphy handed him at the
special meeting wnich tied the
hardware to Horace Fogel. At
that time he thought he had land
ed Tinker, but Murphy backed
out of the dicker at the fast mo
ment after practically agreeing to
terms. Herrmann may bring
league politics into pTay to force

over this claim as there was at
the last Republican convention.
Roger demands fulfillment of a
five-year contract which still has
four years to run at a salary of
$10,000 per annum. None of the
magnates has much liking for
Mrs. Helen Hathaway -Bntton,
owner of the Cards, and this will
give Roger an-evfcn chance to col
lect. The old league- always manages
to stir up a row. The magnates
are so uedito -fighting that they
would feel the meeting was illegal
unless a few wounds 'were opened.
In contrast will be the quiet
meeting of" the American League,
