Big doings the other day on the

elsewhere, eight umpires eafh "tossed
out a new white ball," eight umpires
each in his finest voice cried "play
ball," and in eight cities the sporting
writers chronicled that "the game was
on." At least these quotations have
done service from time immemorial
and there Is no reason why they
should be discarded at this late date.
It was the-day when all the teams
were equal and that marked the Initial

hopes of several million fans. What
will the end be? Call around In Octo

In the American League the rapid
development last year of Philadelphia
and Boston and the hard tussle that
Detroit had to repeat for the second
time her pennant performance, makes
the picking of a championship team
this year the merest guess work.
About the only thing that does seem
assured is that the first division teams
in each league will not differ material
ly from those of Inst year. Pittsburg,
Chicago, New York and Cincinnati
again look to be certainties In the Na
tional for the upper tier, while in the
American, Detroit, Philadelphia and
Boston appear reasonably safe, with
either New York or Cleveland having
a good chance to wrest from Chicago
her berth In the upper division.
And added Interest in the National's
race this year is the adoption of a
strong policy regarding the umpiring
and the protection of the umpires.
President Lynch bids fair to follow the
example of Ban Johnson, of the Ameri

but did not disconcert him. He wait

finished what he had to say.
The President was describing the
two conditions he would Impose in
granting suffrage to any class. "One
Is," he said, "that the class should be
intelligent enough to know lta own
Interests. The theory that Hotten
tots or any uneducated, altogether un
intelligent class is prepared for self-
government at once; or should Imme
diately take part In self-government, Is
a theory I wholly dissent from but
that Is not appllcablo to the present

that the class should care enough for
their own Interests to take part In
the exercise of political power if it Is
conferred upon them. If they do not,
then it seems to me that the danger
is that the power conferred may be ex
ercised by that part of the class least
