DOOLAN TO CHICAGO
Will Keep Him for Phillies,
PHILADELPHIAj Pa.. Nov. 2,-Prol-dent
Horace Pogcl, of tlio Phillies, aayii
lie Is ono of tlio eight employers of the
National League to whom President
Lynch should bo thankful for the posi
tion he holds. It seems ridiculous, says
Horace, that tin employe, should en
deavor to II ro ono of his bosses,
"Is such u thine lKisslble?" says
Kogel. "Not In my ivcollectlon have I
Known wheru n worker could dictate
lo ii boss. I M to mako It clear to
all that I am ono of President Lynch'3
employers, and mean to remain In that
capacity. Ab to his assertions that all

"President Lynch is unpopular. In the

1 will convincingly show when I am
ailed at the special meeting which Is to
bo held In New York soon.
"I am suro tho other magiuttca will
bupport mo through thick and thin, and,
no far as ostracising 'me, 1 cannot put
it too strong that such a statement on
the part of President Lynch Is folly.
He Will Keep Doolan.
"In rcganl to Doolan leaving the
Phillies, this statement Is untrue. There
Is no pliij'er on the Chicago team for
whom I would exchange him. Doolan
is a valuablo player, and proved himself
to be one of the best shortstops In cither
league, uud has been ono of tho (drone
uupports of tho Phillies for sovernl
ears. To permit Doolan to leave this
ilty would mean a loss to the Phillies
and a gap that could not bo tilled.
"I know Doolan Is a wonder, nnd I
intend to keep him, because It Is my
Intention to hae my team as strong
.is possible. I realize, tliut Manager
Kvcra needs a wiluable n'ajer, but we
need Doolan out selves. I cannot under
stand why Evers had the audacity to
mako the assertion that hu desired
DooUn when ho knew the player Is
under contract to tho Phillies.
"Such declarations are bound to make
dissatisfaction between employe and
