Dubuque Telegraph-Herald: The
players were a jolly, good natural
bunch as they sat around their hot.!
in farewell session Sunday night. The
fact seemed to console them that they
iiad made a record in one direction at
least, having won fewer games almos
than any club in the recent history or
baseball. It was recalled by the men
that the Louisville club won fewer
aines about ten years ago than tho
Dubuque team did this year, but that
was the only instance that could b
cited. There is another respect ;n
which the Dubuque team made a recor l
this season, and that is in the number
of men who were tried out on the ag

been almost enough men on the Di

WASHINGTON CLAIMS TO HAVE LANDED

wilds of Idaho. Despite the fact that
the wonder is with the tail-end team
in the American league, he has man-

has pitched during the short time he
has been in big league company.
Never before in the history of base
ball has a young pitcher without even
the slightest minor league experience
made so great a record as has John
This, of course, may be considered
an extravagant assertion, for Johnson
has been in fast company but six I
weeks or thereabout. It may be ar
gued that he has not had a thorough
trial, and that he must go through
several campaigns before he can be
given the title of champion, and yet
what other pitcher of similar exper
ience has accomplished as much as

was the only one of the lot who came
from an independent team to fast com

minor leagiy? experience, but It was
year or two before Young showed class
enough to be placed with the stars.
"Walsh was a minor leaguer, and fo
two seasons was only a fair man for
the White Sox. Bill. Donovan was car
ried by both Brooklyn and Washington
for several years before he was a rcnl
pitcher, and Mathewson had several
years of minor league experience be
