SKEL ROACH TALKS
SEATTLE TWIRLER TELLS OF
ALTERED METHODS ■
VETERAN IS REMINISCENT
Stick Wlelder and Blant Artist's Ef.
fectiveness Contrasted— How
New Delivery Developed
and Change Wrought
"The stylo of biittlnK in both tho
major nnd minor leagues," snlrl Skel
Hoarh. Seattle's veteran twlrler, yes
terday, "has rhniiKeil completely In the
lost twelve ypiit-s. The style of pitch
ing has nnturnlly changed to accom
modate the altered batting methods,
and the not result has been that the
pitchers huve outpaced the batsmen
and are now masters of the situation."
Skel Roach, the giant twirler, whose
artistic productions of a mystifying
nature will be served over to aspiring
Seraphic stlrkers this week. Is only a
minor leaguer, although a second rater
of such class that several of the big
moguls desire his services.
Skel is tho grand old man of the Sl
wasli horde this season, but age has
not dimmed nor custom staled the
awful effectiveness of ye ancient wor
thy's salary wing.
Roach is one of the most intelligent
pitchers now In the profession and one
of the closest, keenest observers of
"I have watched batsmen and pitch
ers," continued Skel, "for maybe ten
years, and I have talked with veterans
from all the leagues. Hence 1 think I
am stating a fact when I say that both
batting and pitching have been com
pletely revolutionized in recent sea
sons. Up to a few years back— say,
until Willie Keeler first began to get
busy with his toothpick bat—the great
hitters used to grasp the stick way
down at the handle and swing on a
ball like demons. Take a bat, hold It
that way, let some one throw you a
ball, and you will find that you almost
always thwack heaviest on balls waist
high, while you can go up after balls
by the shoulders in effective fashion.
Low balls, though, are bothersome.
"All the great sluggers of that day.
Anson, Brouthers, Orr, Connor and
Browning, for example, used to swing
mightily on the high balls and on waist
"About a dozen years ago came the
bunters and the chopping hitters. Al
most at a bound these men changed the
style ot batting. Of course, there were
still many of the veteran batters who
slugged or missed the leather to the
last, but the Baltimore batsmen of the
Keeler type proceeded to take posses
sion of tho field. And what they did to
the low ball pitchers was a caution.
Low Balls Easy
"Choke a bat way down the wood, as
Keeler does and as al Ihis admirers do,
and you will suddenly become pos
sessed of a great desire to tap low
balls, push them down on the ground
for bunts or clip them for short, spin
ning singles. With this change In the
art of .bating came the increased pitch
ing range, and the combination was a
death blow to a lot of clever box men.
"The fellows who had been pitching
drops and low shoots, hard on the arm
at best, now found their curves hitting
the ground, while the extra exertion to
make a drop break further in was aw
ful on their arms. Add to this the
change in batting methods and you will
understand why so many of the great
old pitchers suddenly went to the wall
and why the batting averages began
"There isn't a club in the country
now which will keep a pitcher who per
sists in sending them in low. 'Pitch
'em round their necks' is the call of
uvery manager. Any time It is seen
that a pitcher is sending the ball across
at or below the knee, lie can count on
drawing a release envelope in the ne.u
and sudden future.
"The drop bull Is gone. It has died
the death of all things which are su
perfluous. While all pitchers learned
in their juvenile days how to throw ths
drop, they don't use it. It is not only
useless, but it hurts the arm. Once last
summer I shied in a drop Just for fun.
Dugdalc, who was catching me, came
walking out. 'What was that bull?' he
asked. 'A drop, Dug,' said I, 'Well,
give me some more of them— they can't
hit 'em,' said he. 'Nope, 1 I answered,
'no more. I want to stay In the gume a
few years more.'
"Tall pltcherH, swinging the arm
above the head, can drive a ball on a
downward slant with terrible speed,
and that slam, passing at the shoulder
and descending, Is the modern substi
tute for the oltl drop ball. A' fellow
like Vie Willis can throw that in won
Pitchers Have Advantage
"Control of course is us great a
jioint as ever. I have been tnld by hat
ters and catchers tliHt Clark Griffith!
when hfi Is feeling right, has control
such as no other inun, except Cy
Young, ever dared to have. Griffith's
c-atchern have tolrl me that they huve
held the !>|g glove at tho spot where
they wanted the ball, and that Griffith
would Invariably hit the big glove at
"Will the batters ever best the pitch
ers? Never, excepting for n little
while, now and thin. Possibly a return
to the old, free-slugging method might
hammer the pitchers for some small
time— and then the slubmen would be
gin working low balls again."

May 26. 1906.
LOS ANGELES HERALD* WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL 12, 1905.
Manager Morley has made n wise
move In endeavoring to complete a
dicker with Uncle Henry Harris and
secure the services of "Wally" Waldron
i/1 the Seraphic left pasture during the
remainder of the season. Arthur Ross
Is one of the cleverest and most effec
tive fielders in the Pacific Coast league
when he is right, but if Artero thinks
he can play better ball with the Seals
he evidently has good reason for reach
ing such a conclusion. His sticking
so far this season has not been such
as to arouse unbounded enthusiasm and
ball basters are exactly what the Ser
ar-hlc squad needs In their 1905 pursuit
of the red rag.
In addition to being a stellar per
former In the country Ross' probable
successor Is quite a handy man when
it comes to finding the sphere for a life
on the cushions. "Wally" has a timber
average of .276 for his efforts at the
plate last year and his figure of forty
right stolen bases shows that he can
pull off annexation ceremonies with the
sacks when necessary.
Waldon Is far from a certainty,
however, anil it Is 7iot Improbable that
the artist will strengthen the forces of
M. Harris rather than pass the time
scraping the cover off the ball for the
Morleyites. But here's hopin*.
"Slats" Davis is reported to be um
piring great ball around S 'Frisco and
thereabouts. The opaque gentleman
has cultivated a great diligence and as
siduity. Said diligence and assiduity
consists, mainly, In deducting V and X
marks from struggling ball players'
monthly dividend. The Indicator hold
er has passed out twenty-two fines in
the first series and jiow has the lad
dies eating out of his hand. Problem:
How much will the league Bursar de
duct from one Charles Graham', some
time of Tacoma, monthly -wage when
the Tiger backstop holds a few 6f his
affecting little Interviews with Indica
tor Davis? The first correct answer
received will be entitled to a hatful
of free passes to the first cricket match
played in Los Angeles.
Russell Hall will show em' how its
done this afternoon. Russ has been
stinging the ball at a two minute clip
and seems to be about the only Siwaßh
who can be depended' to counter on the
sphere in a pinch.
Russ says he will see to it that his
charges don't finish In the ruck and
that when the field rounds Into the
stretch he will be there with a few
Los Angeles seems well able to stand
the increased admission price. There
were some murmurings of disapproval
when the ukase went forth that two
more nickels would have to be dis
gorged before one could enter tho por
tals of Chutes park, but fandom has
submitted to the Inevitable and sorrow
fully shows the necessary pieces.
"Heinle would have got it" has be
come a nightmare to visiting artists
of the big mlt. It matters not whether
the sphere Is fouled off Into the. next
township— the backstop is surely to be
admonished of the Teutons lnfallabillty.
Charlie Graham evidently thinks that
there is something quite uncanny about
Yon Spies' ability to get under the
feathery ones. Konio one whispered
to Charles that "Heinle would have got
It" one day last week whereupon the
former Santa Clara captain turned and
making; sundry and divers warlike ges
tures the while in the direction of the
seer, quotha "Heinle is er porch climb
er." Some boys have such tempers.
Seattle and Log Angeles will play
their first game of the series on the
Chutes park diamond this afternoon.
The Slwashes and Seraphs were Bched
uled to pursue the sphere yesterday,
but the rain necessitated postpone
ment, llaum will pass over the bend
era for the Morleyltes. The game will
be culled at 3:30.
Homo men try to expand their uM
debts by contracting new ones.

WITH BIG REVOLVER
Oxnard Barber Comes to Los Angeles
In Search of His Wife and
Gets Into Trouble
After terrorizing residents In the
neighborhood of Seventh nnd San Pe
dro streets yesterday afternoon for
more than an hour by brandishing a
big revolver, Aaron Campbell, a barber
from Oxnard, was taken in charge by
Officer McKenzle and Detective Rltch
and locked up at the police station
pending charges against him.
Campbell arrived In Los Angeles
from Oxnard and started out to
search for his wife, from whom he had
recently been separated. Armed with
his enormous revolver and strengthen
ing his resolution by glasses of whisky
at various saloons along the route, it
is said, Campbell arrived at 758 South
San Pedro street where his wife was
Mrs. Alice Guptill. the landlady, ap
peared at the door and Campbell brand
ished his weapon in her face and de
manded to see his wife, according to
the police. Mr. Guptill, hearing the
noise, went to the door and the revolv

The Guptllls, fearing for Mrs. Camp
bell's life should she be seen by her
husband, talked with the pnraged man
to gain time while the wife hid her
self in one of the upstairs rooms.
When the neighbors, attracted by the
loud talking, started to appear on the
scene they were frightened away.
Campbell finally gained admission to
the house. When Officer McKenzle ar
rived and took Campbell in charge
the revolver was nowhere in sight. It
was later found In one of the rooms.
FAMOUS PRAYER BOOK
RECLAIMED BY OWNER
Gruesome Relic of Griffith Assault Is
Taken From "Chamber of
The now famous prayer book which
figured as one of the exhibits In the
trial of Col. Griffith J. Griffith for the
murderous attack on his wife at the
Arcadia hotel, Santa Monica, over a
year ago, has left its temporary home
in the "Chamber of Horrors" at the
court house, and tho little book with
all its historical reminiscences, Is now
the property ot Mrs. M. A. C. Griffith.
The prosecution's case hinged in part
upon this book, for It will be remem
bered that at the trial the fact develop
ed that Griffith at the point of a re
volver ordered his wife with tho
prayer book in her hand to swear
fidelity to him.
The case was prosecuted upon the.
theory that Griffith intended to murder
his wife, and ordered her to hold tho
prayer book that the deed might appear
to bo a case of suicide. ,■•'

tiusbnnd conducted himself in a most
It nppeurs from the testimony that
Willard 11. Kddy publicly nnnouncp.d

It appears thnt when Mrs. Kddy In

Inclination to assume the role of a
dictator In thfl councils of tho homo,

husband was so fond of physlcnl cul

In landing heavy blows on her ribs.
For nil this, however, Mrs. Kddy was
patient, but her stock In trade of this
quantity whs exhausted when hor hua
