HK Baso Ball Players fraternity,
T recently organized, did not come
Into being prematurely. Events
of the last tew weeks tend to
emphasise the demand for a
players protective and defensive organ
ization. Whether this one Is laid out
on brood, aggressive grounds, we do not
bs yet know, but If not the chances are
tt will arise to the needs. David Fultz,
former star player, is president, olid
Christy Mathewaon, Ed Sweeney, Mike
Doolan, Ty Cobb, vice presidents; Jako
paubert, secretary. One of the chief
promoters of this fraternity Is Charles
Webb Murphy, albeit It Is furtherest from
his Intention to be. But Just such as
slnlty as Murphy has displayed In his
dealings with Chance, Tinker, Brown
and .others. Is the Impetus such an or
ganization needs to make It go. Why
was tt ever formed? Because the players
felt they were getting and would con
tinue to get a square deal from all the
magnates. A good deal has been sold of
the need for. stringent rules protecting
rights of owners and a good deal has
been done to provide & system of such
rules, but now the time has coma for a
Uttlo stringency the other way. And It
certain concessions are not voluntarily
mode they will be forced, for ball play
ers are not getting a square deal under
the rules when a person like Murphy
can exercise absolute authority against
Btvery wish, will and welfare of the game
at large), such as he Is exercising over
Chance and others who have made htm
In base ball. Whenever base ball law
permits owners to put and hold players
In bondage, then it Is time for base ball
law to begin to tremble for Its integrity.
The players showed onco what could bo
done by concerted action and they are
v In much better situation today to, demon
strate their power than they were then.
Let somo asslntno upstart drive thorn
hard enough and1 see what "will happen.
We cannot believe, however, that tho
other men at the head of tho game, such
as Ban Johnson, Comlskey, Herrmann,
Dreyfuss and others will sit by ancTsee
ne or two unscrupulous men get past
with this kind of conduct.
No,M says McQraw, 'Til not trade off
Bnodgrass because he muffed that J30.000
fly. He'll be right there next Tyeor; he's
a good player," Certainly. It might
have been lldrray or anybody else who
muffed tho same fly. Besides, do you
happen to recall the evolution of one
Mr. MerkleT Star ball players are not
fired for muffing flies, even at $30,000
There Is something In the argument of
Messrs. Rourke and Holland that It does'
no good to fix a salary limit and then
ignoro It. Salary limits have their strong
points, also their weak ones. Tho way
to determine the balance of power 1b not
to make a dead letter of the rule.
Compare Comlskey's giving lEd Walsh
an extra $1,500 for pitching his team to
victory In that last game with' Murphy's
treatment of Chance, Brown, Tinker,
Hoftnan, Pfelstcr, et at
Exeunt Chance, Tinker, Brown, Sheck
rd and possibly Schulto. Can't you see
those.' Chi fans storm the battlements tor

Judging from tho score, the Cornhusk

They figure that end runs and forward

they aro going to work them fast and

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Nov.- 2.-lntoad
of the usual one-day affair, Indianapolis
Is to have a two-day speedway meet noxt
year. In addition to tho annual 600-mlle
race, C W, Sedwlck, the manager, hopes
to Btage an International contest.
Mr. Sedwlck's Idea Is to permit only
ono car from a country to compote and,
to pick that car by means of elimination
trials. A foreign car owned in this coun
try and driven by nn American will not
bo eligible to compete In this race. The
ontrant must bo a maker In a foreign
country and tho driver must be from tho
other sldo to get In as a foreign entry.
It is thought that tho G00-ml!e nice
Itself will' attract bona fide entries from
makers In France, acrmany, Italy and
England, and that America uIbo will bo
well represented. This would give Sod
wlck plenty of talent. Tho Pougcots,
Itenaults, Panhards and Darracqs from
France would have to fight It out In tho
I trials to see which would represent
France In tho match; tho Henz and Opel
might battle to come In from Germany;
the Flat and Isotta could put up a warm
argument as Italy's representatives. As
for tho American champion, the qualify
ing round for this honor would be ajraoo
After the qualifying rounds It Is" sug
gested that the four or flvo canj bo
brought togothsr In a final match, which
would ts either at 100 or 2CC miles, and
with a purse that would approach In size
tho first prize In Uie 600-mlle race. With
such a field there Is no reason why tho
match raco should not be fully as good.
If not better than the five-century grind,
which has become a' regular affair.
Tho speedway management has an
nounced that It will not receive any
entries for the C00-mlle race until Janu
ary 1, While a number of tentative en
tries havo been mode, nothing has been
booked officially. Tho raco Itself will bo
open to cars of 450 cubic Inches piston
displacement and Under, whereas up till
now tho limit has been COO. This will
encourage American makers and elim
inate such big cars as tho Flat and
Mercedes which ran last year.

Tlala Side Have of Ills
NEJW YORK, Nov. 2. Bombardier' Wells,
England's heavyweight champion, has an
nounced that ho Is to sail In a week or
two for this country. Ho hopes to be
ablo to strengthen the Impression follow
ers of boxing on this side of tho water
have of his prowess, and, of course,
gather In some money. Waen he makes
his appearance hero ho will find plenty
of work to do, provided he does not de
mand more than his services arn worth:
On the eve of his departure for. this
country Wells was given a royal send
off, which Included a banquet at which
he was lauded In glowing terms for his
skill and sportsmanship. Quito possibly
his opinion of his worth was considerably
enhanced by all this praise, and ho may
be disposed to make capital of It when
negotiating for, matches over here.
But while England's champion Is a fine
boxer he Is not likely to work much havoo
among the men he will be called upon to
meet Unless he has gained In stamina
to a surprising degree during his stay In
England he will not be a good bet with
any one of several of our burly white
hopes who can take a punch as well as
give one, even If they can't box much.
Many Ulir Battle.
This winter will see many battles be
tween big fellows known as "whits
hopes." The various heavies wlHTIiave at
tained prominence are laying plnns to
come to this city fon the coming season.
Perhaps by next spring one will havo
outdistanced all his fellows and be wor
thy of a championship match.
AI Palzer, who heads Uio band at pres
ent, Is back In training. Apparently the
big fellow viewed with alarm the rapid
strides- taken by his rival, Luther Mc
Carthy, lately, and made haste to smooth
things over with his manotfer bo that he
could resume action. Now that Palzer
Is back in the ring again an opportunity
may soon bo hod to finally classify him.
His manager plans to advance his stand
ard with a rush as soon as he has had
a chance to get hts hand In again with
a few easy matches. All restrictions ore
to be taken off tho hitherto proscribed
list of opponents, and he, will be open to
meet even the champion himself. Such Is
the announced policy that Is to bo fol
lowed, and If It Is adhered to some In
teresting bouts are sure to result.
