JOSEPH IS HAPPY
The news Is sent out from Chicago that little Abe Coonry Isn't
quite fast enough fur the Chicago Cubs, or, in other words, has no
chance against either Tinker or Kvers, and will be returned to the
Hpokane Indians. Joe and AJbe are both Jews, aud Abe 1» a swell
little hall player and Joe la Jnst as swell v manager and baseball
financier—so everybody is happy. Cooney's return, though, plug* a
nice hole for Colin, on the team this year, and any of those wise dop

another look. Particularly, if Comiskry lets Conn have Jesg Baker
back, which is considered probable.

Before the season opened Manager Jim McGutre of the Cleve
land Naps announced that he would have two outfields, one to be
used when opposed to a right-handed fllnger, and the other when
a southpaw was in the box for the opposing team. Jim also an
nounced that he would work the same scheme with his infield. He
has abandoned the plan in part, but when a southpaw works he
will pull Jack Gnaney out of left field and put Orlggs in his place.
He will likewise exchange Easterly for Birmingham in right. Mc-
Guire is the first to try this scheme, and it will be watched with
interest. Easterly and Graney are both top-notch fielders, and
awful sluggers, but both are there with the south-paw stuff. East
erly is an old Coast league catcher and Graney was a southpaw
pitcher for the Portland Coast league team a season or two ago. He
always was a sweet hitter, but only a fair pitchir. One of the Port
land fly-chasers was laid up by injury, and Jack finished the season
In the field. McGuire, then a scout, got his optics on Jack, and he
has been chasing flys for Cleveland since.

Pitrher Hohwrnk, who has been losing a good deal of sleep for

the other day, and made Mr. Cohn forget all about how the fans
had forgotten to buy cut-rate season passes. The new heaver is
said to be a utility man and a nifty hitter, as well. He batted sec
ond in the American association last year at a .333 clip.
