Joe Ward Alleges Money Due Him.
Altoona. Pa., Jan. 6. Shortstop Joe
Ward, who was tuken bak into the
baseball fold by the national commis
rion Monday, and hoye purchase from
Altoona by the New York Americans
for $2,000 lias -been a pproverli ami con
cluded, is here demanding; one-third of
the purchase money, alleging tiiat the
Attiona management promised that
part of any sum received by his sale.
The Altoona management denies that
such a contract exists. Ward says lie
wilt notify National Secretary Farrell
FINANCIAL AND
DROP IN N. Y. C.
Nerves of Speculators Receive New
Shock Rally in Trading.
New York, Jan. 6. The s'tock mar
ket had apparently disposed of the dis
turbing effect of the coliapse in Con
solidated Gas before the day's session
at the stock exchange had proceeded
far. This factor had not more than
rlost Its influence when a drop in New
York Central gave a fresh start to the
nerves, of speculative holders of stocks.
The reaction in New York Central was
based, like that in Consolidated Gas,
on previous excessive speculation, al
though not carried to such length as
had been that in the gas stock, nor
was the news which caused the specu
lators to feel misgivings so definite or
so abrupt as that offered by the su
preme court decision in the gas case.
The unfavorable intluence of New Y'ork
Central's priea emanated from the
board room of the directors of the com
pany, where the action in electing W.
C. Brown president of the railroad was
interpreted as belying; the supposition
that E. H. Harriman was to assume an
active place on tile directory and place
a man xif his own choice in the man
agement of the system.
The inference drawn from the result
of the New York Central decision of a
presi'lcn; that the latest r,nd most con
spicuous of the many conjectures re
garding Mr. lTarrimnn was mistaken
was not relished by the speculative
contingent. Heavy liquidation was re
newed when the break in New York
Central occurred. Ir is not certain that
influential liquidation was entirely sus
pended nt any tim- during the day, but
it was disguised during the early part
of the session, owing to the large de
mand from the short interest which
met it. The bears had sold freely nn
account of the collapse in Consolidat
ed Gas. and when that stock showed
signs today of having touched bottom
a large short interest remained td be
covered. This was especially notable
in American -Smelting, and the buoyant
rise in that stock gave assurance of
relief from one of the most serious of
recently disturbing factors. The Col
orado anjl Southern stocks were the
center of another demonstration on the
strength of rumors concerning the
terms to be offered to holders of the
preferred stocksby the alleged inten
tion of the Chicago. Burlington and
Quincv authorities. The whole market
was quite Impressively strong at one
period, but prices quickly melted away
with the renew al of the liquidation late
in the day. There were some quarters
of the list where the rise in prices has
been most marked, where the effort to
take profits (ieveloprd a practical with
drawal oi support fo.- prices recently in
evidence. The effect of speculative
sentiment was diquieting and gave
additional impulse to the selling. Trad
ing ended with a. rally in progress
which owned much, palpably, to hasty
covering- of shorts. The day's net
changes In many prominent stocks are
small in consequence. New Y'ork Cen
tral, which losed last night at 125. sold
up to 129 3-8 in the morning, broke to
It':!, urn! close, at 12.U-H, Bonds were

ference that existed when the confer

leagues held a meeting today and af

Clarke Griffith, the new manager of
the Cincinnati National league club,
thinks Lajoie is a hard luck man
ager. "He has had more tban his
Share of hard luck," says (Griffith.
"Cleveland would have won the pen
nant the last two years if it had had
anything like an even break in luck.
Just think of having a team the last
four or five jQars that was always
picked to win the pennant by the
winter dopesters. That is usually the
case, but you did not notice Larry
making any predictions. I always
feared Cleveland, it was mighty dan
gerous at the start of the season.
When the outlook was rosy, one or
two star players would be injured, and
after that the team would be broken
up repeatedly with accident!, to his
good men. i-Jut Liirry clung steadily
to the grind and never gave up.
"Look at my chances last spring,
but my team bleiv up. Larry started
the season without the services of
Flick, and then accidents happened to
Turner and other men. Yet the Naps
were only beaten out by half a game
for the pennant. That was due to
pluck anil lighting all time time. They
always say that Lajoie is no manager
and cannot handle his men. Well, by
this time 1 believe critics will give
him credit for some things he has
done. One of the greatest stunts was
the development otopening and Bir
mingham, and I tlTiiik that they are
two stars right now. Do yon want
me to tell you the greatest trouble
with the Cleveland club?- It is the
lack of fight shown by some of the
players, although I must admit Un
certainly made a gritty finish. 'Now,
say. had they shown that same spirit
all season, why. they would have just
jogged under the wire.
'It took I-ajoie some time to in
stil that fighting spirit, but when once
in the players they could not be stop
ped. That is why I look for Cleveland
to be in the race for the pennant in
1909. for the players will know how
to fight and also keep their tempers.
Let them go into every game with that
never die spirit and you will se a
club called Cleveland run away with
the rag." v
t, A. A. U. Lifts Suspensions.
New York. Jan. 6. What proved to
be a tempest in a teapot in amateur
athletic circles was stilled tonight
when the registration board of the A.
A. V. lifted the ban of suspension for
alleged -'professionalism which ten day.;
ago it placed upon six prominent ath
letes, four of whoin won international
and Olympic honors. The men who
thus again are eligible to compete as
amateurs are J. J. Lee of Boston, un
attached: F. G. Bellars, New York A.
C, and M. Vt. Sheopard. Charles J.
Bacon. George V. BonhnS; and H. F.
Porter, I. A. A. C.
The charges of professionalism laid
against the men were covered by an

Napoleon Lajoie says: "Nothing- in
the story that Cleveland will let Flick
go to Washington. Wo 'have no deal
on with Cantillon and do not expect to
have any transaction with him. Flick
will be with us. and, I hope, will show
his old time form. He could not stand
the Washington climate in summer
time, and we would rot ask him to go
there. Cleveland suits him and he
suits us."
