H "We've shut up shop. We're out
H of the baseball market. We have
H all the players we want for 1913.
H We're satisfied with what we have,
H no more purchases or trades.'
H This Is the last word of James
H R. McAleer, president of tho world's
H champion Red Sox, today. It means
B that Jimmy McAleer is satisfied
H with his team, that he will start next
H season as he finished the past sea-
B son. And, confidently, It means that
H he expects to do as well next year as
H he has dpne this year or better
H He is confident that he will win
1 the 191?, pennant more decisively
H than he.' won th'o year's, e en if the
Hl opposition ib stronger.
Hl McAleer is the first major league
H magnate to announce that he is out
H of the baseball market, and he is
H satisfied with what he has. He
H breaks all records of early announce-
H ments. The others will be buying
H and selling and trading until well
H into next season But McAleer has
H all he wants. He has "nothing to
H , Isews from Constantinople Is to the
1 ' effect that the allied forceB arc ad-
H I vancing on the Turkish capital and
1 j aie likely to capture the city soon.
1 f Grave fears are felt for the Chxlatlaus
H ' in Constantinople when the Turks,
do till tomorrow." He need not
r worry all winter
The Red Sox president retains all
of his present regulars and substi
tutes He has purchased ono new
outfielder Walsh of Fall River
and two new shortstops, Scott of
Youngstown, and Carlstrom of Law
rence, in tho New England league.
He has exercised his option on Har
old Janvrln, the ex-Boston Higl)
school infielder, now with Jersey
He stands pat on his catchers.
Seven New Pitchers.
The only new men not yet men
tioned whom ho has purchased are
pitchers Van Djke, of Worchestcr,
Brant and Martina, of Beaumont,
Texas. Watkins and Alnsworth, of
Youngstown, Ohio, and Foster, or
Houston, Texa6. He has also re
called Leonard from Denver.
McAleer is looking farther into the
future than 1913 That is why he has
taken on another outfielder, two
more shortstops and so many pitch
ers. He has to count on the event
ful retirement of one or more of his
peerless outfielders; also on the
time, some day, when "Heinle" War
ner will quit, notwithstanding tlfat
Wagner, for instance is going bet
tor than ever this year But "Heinle"
has been oleven years in baseball
and the outfielders need more than
the one substitute they now have. It
Is not too early to begin the selection
and training of future stars.
McAleer may well be contented
with his present tenm. They won
this year's pennant and next year
they are bound to improve, for near
ly all of them are young.
Size up tho great outfield trio, for
instance. Tris Speaker is only twenty-three,
and has been In the game
but five years. Harry Hooper is
twenty-four and hns played league
baseball only six years before this.
Duffy Lewis Is Hooper's age. with j
five years in league' baseball before
this year. Hennckson is twenty
three, and has )2en but three years
in the professional game
The infield Is a bit different The
men, as a rule, are older Here arc
beaten back from the defenses In front
of the capital, stavt to wreak their
vengeance In the city. Many Chris
tians are already in flight. Twenty
four thousand Kurds weio reported a3

ner 25. 5: Bradley 25. 7; Englo 28,

Bill Carrigan is 28 with six years
league experience before 1912;!
Oady's figures are 2-1, 4; and Nona
maker 22, y2. Which provides a
catching staff for a long time to
The pitchers are even younger.
Here are their ages and years re
spectively, in professional baseball:
Wood 22, C; Pape 24, 3, O'Brien 28,
4; Collins 25, 4, Bedicnt 22, 2; Hall
All of the new men arc youngsters.
Tins roster gives McAleer thirty
three men, from whom to choose his
pennant chasers of 1913, with all of
his regulars and substitutes now In
good condition with years of base
ball ahead of them.
The purchaso of two new short
stops not only provides recruits who
may fill Wagner's shoes some day,
but youngsters who will fight Krug
for the privilege of substituting for
the Sox captain. Walsh hns been
touted ns an exceptionally clover
outfielder, and will be given a trial.
Tho new crop of pitchers will be
carefully tried between now and tho
openlnf of next season. From them
a left bander will likely be picked
for the regular team. Collins being
the only port-sider who has been on
McAIeer's playing staff this year
McAleer evidently believes that
with the confidence born of this
year's success, his 1912 team will
play even classier baseball next year.
As young as they are, most of them
are seasoued players, now. But the
confidence Inspired of victory ought
to make thepi better still.

Rube Marquard is a wonderful south

The free-handed manner in which
the baseball leaders are fired nowa
days, especially by clubs which seepi
to need managors about as much as
anything else Is causing con-
pldorablo astonishment In baseball
circlet While Rogor Bresna-
han's dismissal was not wholly
unexpected In view of tho numerous
reports of the past vear, it has
aroufied almost ns much comment as
the discharge of Frank Chance by
Charles W. urphy. Eeither of these

Bresnahan's record with the Card
inals compares very favorably with
the achievements of numerous other
managers who are considered fairly
successful. While he 1,ad a noor
season In 1012, he was gradually get
ting together a pretty good ball club
and he was always a Etrong road at
traction, More than likely Miller iluggins, the
Cards second baseman, will be Bres
nahan's successor, and I Juggins'
friends believe he will make good.
However, anv SL Louis manager has
a tough row to hoe especially under
tho new regime there, and Cincin
nati is considered a sinecure to a
berth In the Mound City.
Cincinnati; by the 'way, is still talk
ing about pobsiblft .successors to Hen
nery O'Day, although Hank's record
should warrant another year's trial.
All in all. the old umpire did talrly

he may bo able to belter balance his

Promoters of amateur sports in
France arc planning to mute a team1
of American cross-countr runners
across the big pond in the spring of
1913 to take part in the annual inter
national hill and dale championship
that is annually a big athletic fea
ture In Europe now. This race, which
was first run as a dual affair betwe9n
tho French and English athlete about
six years ato, has bioadened out and
is now opened annually to athletes
from nearly all of the continental na
tions. England has won tho team prize
every year so far. but the individual
prize lias more than once gone to
Frenchmen. Jean Bouln, the sluid
athlete who hails from Marseilles, in
the south of Fiance, led the lnter
aational cross-country pack home in
both 1911 and 1912.

anxious to have, a Yankcs team in tlu
