Contract With Whlto Sox Will Net
$10,000 in Cash.
Second Saeker In Last Four Years
Has Drawn More Money Than Any
Other Player With Exception

Charles Cotnlskey, owner of tlio
White Sox, tins been charged by base
bull fans with underpaying his ball
players. It him been goslp tluit tho
Chicago National league team bus al
ways given Its men higher salaries.
The contract IMdle Collins, second
baseman, has with tho Whlto Sox chief
does not make It appear as If tho
players on lliu South side were poorly
paid. Collins Is one of the highest
salaried Inen In tho game, and In the
last four years probably has drawn
more money than any other man In the
major leagues, with the exception of
Ty Cobb and Tils Speaker.
The second suekor's contract with
the White Sox expires with tho close

will collect more revenue.
DEMPSEY PICKED FOR TITLE
Tommy Burns, Former Heavyweight
Champion of World, Thlnko Young
Man Will Win.
Tommy Hums, one-time heavyweight
champion of the world, thinks Jack
rhuipsoy will defeat Jess Wlllurtl If
tho two ever meet.
"Wlllard Is champion because na
ture was good to him," Hums said.
"Ills enormous size handicaps Ids op
ponents. I do not think he has any
of tho boxing science that character
ized former champions. On tho other
IimhI, Deinpsey Is In good condition, Is
fairly heavy, has n terrible punch, and.
unlike Wlllard, lias some of the, at
tributes of a boxer."
Hums recently was discharged from

Coombs is welcome to Morau's old Job
as far as Moran Can see It.
Jack Hendricks, now returned to In
dianapolis after a disastrous season
with tho Cardinals, did not have n fair
trial as a major league manager. The
claim Is made that Hendricks lacks
tho ability to handle men ; that he does
not savvy the method of getting the
best nut of big league prima donnas.
While his reconl in the minors would
tend to prove th.it he knows how to

the deal for the slugging (In n pugi
