SPIRIT OF SPORTSMANSHIP
EXPANDING AND GROWING.
Though Professionalism Does Not Foster the
Spirit, It Has Thriven and Flourished in
Modern Days A Contrast With the
Spirit of the Paladins.
Ill' TUB ICONOCUAST.
Ilecent lamentable "faUes" In fistima, tho
equally regrettable Indifference and Inapti
tude of the professional baseball players,
backed by the alleged decadence of the
turf, have very frequently led to the re
mark that Fuort U not wbat it onco wits;
that the spirit of sportsmanship In rapidiy

It Is truo that there in an apparent lack

, to talk about that phase of It whui j-ju
' can. ,
Thus I am a believer In the purity and
honebty of the rich sportsman. He Is in
sport tor sport's ctke, for what It might
yield hint la entirely of no cori.-quanco 1
1 To be stire. there are honest men who are '
) pour men men who are Just as straight and
1 clean as any rich man couid lie. IJut eu:h
men aie liable to temptation of a i-cry
. great nature. If they can resist tempta
tion it U much more to their ciedit to be '
1 honest and poor than it Is to the man who, ,
being beyond temntation. cannot b: temnt-
ed. But the beat of them might succumb
to temptation while the rich man will cut,
lor It is not worta his while.
Some years nno. when your. rMwnn!
Ten Eyck. the ouryman. won the scullLig ;
championship ot Kngiand, a great lo-lo
was maue uojut ms cmateur siandinK-l-.nglishmen
freely charted that he was 11
professional; that he had violated their
etiquette by rowing over the coulee before
the tae, which was a professional trick;
that hit father was a Crofessioiial. that ho
uecepted an invitation lor piotessiouals to
a professional banquet, and did all torts of
most unoeooiaing and professional thmtn.
Americans fairly shrieked when all this
became public. They bellowed about t
utiaiiiericanlsm. Its suoboisnnets, etc. Thzn
it developed that the rules governing en
tries at Henley tarred men who hail fol
lowed a mechanical occupation for a live
lihood. l.avlngs wero worsa when all thia was
known. Here was the clashes ngointt tho
mi.3.es, for iair and for true. '1 tie undem
ocratic sentiment emlx-died In this :ule al
most made war with England.
1'et. 11 we but pausi-d to think, the rule
Is the basts of all amateurism. It was
aimed to limit competition for tho Diamoad
Sculls to rich young men, men who ootid
not be professional becufe the money th '
might make from t-uch profe;slo.-.ali:m
wtuld not be worth their while picku.g t p.
The rule may be a little broad ai.o. .iivofp
lng. but it Is straight and true. It limited
competition to iim.lti ur.s.
Hence we must admit that the simon-puro
amateur must, as a rule, be a ric- man, or
comparatively neb, enough to make the
gains which ho could acquire b profs
Elonulism in his line of excellence -o m
Fignlliuint s to be of no cDiiEt.iu-iue to
him. We must admit that mu.-t twn hav
their price In little things. But tome ar-
so high priced that you cannot buy the n.
I am not niakin- the rich man any but. r
or any honester than the poor m in. The
rich n.an is simply tupposed to be tnvlnh t
from the taint of iir..tenlonali.sra -ecaie
they cannot pay him his price. And the
jK.or man Is violate because they cm ami
will lay htm his price.
Hence, bting out for the dollor It Is not
rlgnl that we should expect to see a deal
of sportsmanship evinced by the profi-i-Morial.
It li a care of money with him. As
a well-known local nmateur taid to me 1
tho other day: "When money H tp.
courUsy cea5i3 to f slit." j
After all, "we have not rctrogadnl In. J
sportmasiiho Bplitt and behavior. We aro I
pretty much on the level, professionals .
and all. even the pugilists. When we ce-

would not th.ink h.m much of a cDorU-
man. Even Sharkey, with big Wyatt tarp
win over Fuzsimmons, woaid bo a c.ean
man compared with h.m. That's tl.o dtftc
ei ce between Kln Arthur aad iiob lltz
iimmons. Then when King Arthur died he was too
m"a:i to leave his loaded dice, his big per
centage, to his fnenu.. Whan ho found him
self dying he had nil trusty friend. Sir Bevi
dere, with him. He bade him take tho sword
Eealibvir and throw it far Into a neigh
boring lake. Sir iVvidere, being in Uie ring
himself, appreciated the great alue of Mich
a weapoi.. and tri' d to hold it out on the
ICirg:. He hid it under some weeds. Re
turning, he lied like a sood fellow about It.
The King knew what would come olf if he
had thrown it Into the lake, and Uopcd
him up In the lalehood. Again he went
r.ivay to throw It into tha lak, nnd again
he hid and bed about it. Again he was
ho was caught, and this ume he went back
and threw it In.
This case shows King Arthur ud as selfish
ar.d ungrateful, and x;lchs Sir Eevidere as
a 11 lr and a Receiver of dying men, such a
u.an as wculd cop t h copp rs oft a dead
cop's eyes.. Many a time aiu :Mr Bevidere
;o in the ICing's corner and second hint in
lain style, may be, stepping In and break
ing the ring to lose on a fou! when his man
was in danger of being w'lipped. The least
the King might have done waa to leave him
hi sword and percentage. Thm when Ar
thur was so mean and ungenerous as :o
want the sword destroyed S:r Bedlvere
nvght have dona as he was bidden by a
djir.g man. Neither of these celebrated
kn-hts were true sportsmen in any sen-e
of the word. They fall far hort of the
Nineteenth Century" idea of ordinary de
cency and gooa-f ell jw ship.
So, ati-T ail, tho sportsmanship and fair

National League President and the Magnates
Have Been in the Game Too Long and
Their Ideas Are Ancient Rowdyism

In the game till? season as ever before.
However, it died out early In the year that

The public did not like the methodi used
by the magnates. There was entirely too
much politics in the game. ltules were
made, but wero not lived tip to. It Plater

plteitrpted to Impose a tine, as the rules call

the magnates have laid the blame on the
umpires for not fuiaillug taeir duties. How
ever. If aa umpire acta according to the
lawd of the League and flne3 or suspend.., a
player for violating them, he Is in danger
of losing his tositlon on the start. The
magnate to whom the guilty player b un

that the umpire is giving his club the worst

agement has since discovered that it made
a mistake in barring one of the best um

games and has raised the ban.
Put this Is only one of many Instances
where the umpire Is not supported. Urn

Jak Iiovle of the New York eluh O.-iele s

This in the face of the fact that every
one of the Cl iclnnati iapers appeared the
day after the j ncounter with glaring head
lines denouncing Doyle for his cowardly aa

ennati for evidence. Hr might have asked
the Cincinnati players about th oceurr ne,
but, of course, they would not rubber on
their fellow -play or. so tho case waa dis
missed. Tho WoIvcrton-lIcGraw nnd Wolverton-

It plea-es the club owners.
In the American league the umpire it! the
bos?. After time is called he reigns supremo
until the contest la finished. Players, whil"
of course they ktel: on a questionable de
cision, do not go to the extreme. A player
is not given more than one chance to as
sault an umpire. His first offense forces
him to pay a largo line, and If It is a glar
ing one he Is liable to expulsion. Three or
four player probably will u blacklisted
by the Am, liean league resident this
year; that Is. tbev will not lie allowed to
plav In the Amerli an In the future. If the
National. Eastern or any oiher league
wishes their services It may have them,
but the American washes its hands".
That the course taken by tho American
Ieague Is a popular one with the public i'-
proven by the large crowds that attended
its games. One Sunday in Chicago !.(
people witnessed a grime at the American
i:igiio Club't, grounds In the South Side,
while half that number saw the National
League team play on the West Side. Pres
ident Hart's t'.am wai well up in the race
at the time, m the excuse of the club play
ing poor ball will not go. The majority Ee
lected the Inferior article to the supe
rior, knowing that things would be properly
conducted where the American Leasue
The iochetbook.s of the National Lcaguo
magnates have lieen touched thf year, so
it Is more than probable that they will pat
tern aftir the tJtample set down by the
Aniftican Association. Thev will no doubt
endeavor to ftr to it that tho laws are en
forced snd do all in their power to abolish
The player.s also realise the fact that
their fat salaries will be rt thinjr of the
pa'-t unless they reform and pliy Kiseball
and not put i:t their time separating the
umpire from his uniform and slugging each
other. The-.- no doubt have awakened to
tho fact that unless the reformation Is
made Immediately they will read In history
of the princely salaries that were paid to
ball plav crs until they ruined tho game
with their rowdy tactics.
Th" St Irfitils club hn? finished another
disastrous Eastern trip. The club made a
very poor showing. It waa also a failure
from a financial standpoint. Outside of Chi
cago and Pittsburg the club's share of the
gate teceipts was hardly enough to pny
1 pensen It was a lucky break for tho
club to land in littsburg on the day of
the Pirates' return from tho vlctcrioui
The farm hands, SchreckcngoT, Harper,
Kruger and Hemphill, will no doubt bo
giivn a chance lu the games that will be
n.itl ;1.I week. If they do not come tip
to the mark they will hardly be kept un
til next s-ason. The ltobisons tire, no
doubt, tired of expeiirive clubs, so they will
not carry' any more deadwood In the fu
ture. It has been a bad year financially.
The club cannot afford to carry players
that don't make guod. It has not co-t
Brooklyn any more in salaries to win the
pennant than It has St. Louis to wind
up in a tr.il-end position. However. It will
bo exceedingly hatd to get new material
this year, so the farm hands will be given
a thorough trial before they are turned
down. Harper has a good chance to stick.
It is raid tor hi.-n that he did first-rato
work l:i the Interstate. He Is a strong
young fellow, with plenty of curved, bpetd
und a good change of pace. He possessed
I good control In the minors, so with a lltt.'o
' experience in fast company he should bo
able to Mick them over at his pleasure. It
would be hard to find n better utility out
fielder than Hemphill. If his record in tho
American cr.n te taken as a itifrion. Ho
was badly t.eeded by the club when Dentin
and IlvlurVk were on the sick list.
The claim that the record of twenty
four hits made by New York against
Chicago on last Tuesday stands as the base
hit achievement of the season is not sup
ported by fact. On July St Pittsburg made
twenty-six hits In the game with Brooklyn.
while only u few days before Philadelphia
roiled up tncnty-nvs hits against the Pi
rates. ! Istrrt-tt was caught on a funny trick nt
I Philadelphia. He wa oil first when llar-
: ley struck oat. Jlcf'nrland dropped the
lial: und Barrett started for second and
was i.iily thrown out As Harley was
out with the tlrst base occupitd, an cay
double play resulted.
If Manager Allen lias chargo of the Clr.
cinnatis again next season It 11 certain that
overtl members of the preterit team will

that if l"e had had a good line on several of

Th- story rent out Horn Philadelphia or
tap discovery of the underground battery

to Manager Allen of the Cincinnati club,

aud bad no trouble.
"The crew, as was known, had no substitute-,
but fortunately all the men were In
condition. There was a story publishcl
after our departuro that a substitute hal
sailed for Paris, but that was not so. The
men trained on the ship going over, and
were well when wo landed. There were
hundreds of Americana nt the race and we
received an ovation.
"The day after the regatta we went up
to Paris and spent the time looking at the
sights. We saw the Exposition, and. as I
said tiefore. had a good time. We wre en
tertained by Ambassador Porter and wera
treated well In Paris."
Cockswain Abell said. In speaking of the
Paris race, that tho course was a good one,
with a slight bend in It. and was something
like the Harlem ltiver course, only there
was no tide. On a trial before tho race the
Vesper crew rowed over It In -4-33, which
was faster than the course record. Cock
swain Abell said that the Trench oars-men
had no system In racing. Boys acted as
cockswains and they steered the crews all
over the river.

senior sculling races this season will prob
ably lead to two Interesting matches', with

the race will take place on September 23.
Unless Rumohr rows In much better style
than he did at the Middle States' Regatta
