The baseball world will center
when the Xational League holds its annual meeiin,;. The National Commis
sion is also expected to meet and make some announcement of the stand
organized buseball is to assume in the face of the demands from the Base
ball Players' Fraternity. In the ltaht of the evident progress of the Fed
eral League all over the country this year's meeting is momentous in the
history of the national game.
Manager Clark Griffith leaves tomorrow afternoon on the Congres
sional for New York, yoing to the meeting in the hopes of obtaining a
hitter or two to strengthen his pennant chasers. This is sufficient to keep
the eyes of Washington fans on the sport pages every day.
Joe Tinker, deposed manager of the
Cincinnati club. Is to be traded to some
club making the best offer to Garry
Herrmann. The latter will then an
nounce his latest manager.
Almost every club In the National
League will be in the Held with players
to trade. This does not leave out the
Giants, either, winner of the 1313 pen

vania, is to be elected president of the

thereby shattering all records for the
older organization. His term will ex

or ooo a year.
During the week the National Com
mission, consisting of Garry Herrmann
and the two big league presidents, will
pit in session and will probably an
nounce their decision to the Baseball
Players' Fraternity as to the demands
made by the athletes for amelioration
of certain conditions. This will be most
important and should have far-reaching
Washington, of course, will be greatly
interested In the movements of Clark
Griffith. The Old Fox is going to New
York to obtain a hitting outfielder or
two. He knows that he can't get what
he wants In his own league and vlll try
to use his friendship with National
Laguo magnates to obtain the right
men from that league. It is believed
that he will make another stab at
Johnny Bates, the utility man of the
Cincinnati Reds. He has his eyes also
upon Artie Butlr and Owen Wilson,
both with Pittsburgh. If .he can ob
tain none of these players, he may take
a chance with Hike Mitchell, who is
done In Pittsburgh.
"I don'-t know whether I'll 'have any
hjcccss or not at the meeting, but I'm
goinp oc . anyway." says Manager
Griffith. -This Is going to be a most
important meeting for baseball. From
m own viewpoint, of course, all I
want is a hitter. I'm going to try for
one. If I'm lucky. I may bring back
the man to land the pennant in Wash
ington. That's worth striving for,
A merry scrap is on hand now for the
rcrvices of Joe Tinker, deposed from
the managerial berth in Cincinnati. A
consistent .300 hitter, the most brilliant
shortstop in the National League, and
one of the brainiest players In the
game. Tinker will be an acquisition j
to any club in
ountry. And about every club in the
old Itague is out for him.
Charlie Dooln, manager of the Phil
lies, has offered Mike Doolan and Otto
Knaoe for Tinker and Heinle Groh, a

If. by any chance whatever. Tinker
is allowed to escape from the National
League, John Farrell offers to pay the
ighest sum ever paid for a playr to
land Tinker at short for the Yankees.
Garry Herrmann wants a manager.
He -nlll give Tinker to the club offer

usual schedule of wrestling matches,
now that the local theaters have drop

announcement made by the Atlantic

stead of an added attraction, is taken
as a good omen, and many predict that
the success of the Atlantic Sporting;
Club is assured. Added to this straight
forward manner of holding Its matches,
the quality of the sport is expected to
be augmented by the fact that the club
Is -composed of sporting writers o

Is accepted as sufficient assurance that
wrestling entertainments of the purest
variety will be shown, and that the ex
