to Decide Relative Merits
of the Two Teams
Imperial Ur-Bulletin Onm-HP""'''""'!
The first of what should prove an
Interesting series cf ball games will
be played tomorrow at Schofleld be
tween the Coast Defense and the 25th
Infantry. The series is to be the best
three out of five games, and all the
details fcr the other games will be
arranged tomorrow between Lt G. L.
Van Deusen and Lt R. P. Harbold,
the respective managers.
The baseball enthusiasts cf the army
both at Schofleld Barracks and in
town have been urging such a series
since the close of the Army league

ly nosed out the heavy artillerymen for
the army championship cf the terri
tory. In this series these two teams
were pitted against each other only

21th Infantry won all the other games
they played, while the Coast Defense
fuccumbed in tho first game they j
played at. Schofleld to the 1st InfantT.;

lias been: - ;
"I'm getting the breaks."-
Everything has been breaking for
me this year. The club has support

the team knew how I worked each Haven about Oct 1 for a period of six

other words, the fielders knew where
a certain man was liable to hit a curve
ball close or a fast one. My control
helped in this. Then there was a grad
ual changing the team and new blood
was shifted in. The new-comers were
not used to my methods, and for two
years nothing would break for me.
Once more they are bending for me
this season.
As a side remark, I want to say that
golf has helped me in my pitching.
On the off days that I do not work I
find that the amount of exercise which
a round or two of golf will give me
keeps roe on edge. The mistake I
made last season was to play on morn
ings that I was to start a ball game
in the afternoon. It is too hard work
to play 18 holes of golf and then pitch
a game in one day. Another thing
golf does is to keep my mind from
dwelling on baseball constantly. It
is a relaxation from the game at which
I make my living.

one of the best men behind the bat
not barring "Johnny" KHng in his
prime. Bresnahan could play his own
position and keep track of the rest of
the game to a nicety. The other play
ers on the club were always on their
toes and he was hollering and sug
gesting to them and riding them all
the time. In other words, he kept the
team un to the limit of its efficiency,
which it is largely up to a catcher to
do. The slovenliness of many catchers
is responsible fr the slow work of a

NEW YORK. Once the richest and
most powerful magnate in th? Nation
al League, John B. Day, founder of
the New York baseball club, which
has controlled the Giants since
now draws a small salary for super
vising the turnstiles at the Polo
grounds. Day's fortune, made in 1SS
and 188$. when the Giants won two
world's championships from the St
Louis Browns and the Brooklyns. re
spectively, was swept away in vainly
fighting the Brotherhood revolt of
1S90. He sacrificed all to remain loy
al to the National League, which,
without his allegiance, would have
been crushed in mldseason. In fart. !
ivay refused a half interest in the
New York Brotherhood club, together
with a $25A0 salary to serve as pre
sident. Players Broke Faith.
The story of Diy's ruin is an old
one. but his w.onderful faith in th?
ball players who threw him down
never has been told. At the sugges
tion, of James Mutrie, Day organized
the old Metropolitans, who wen the
American Association championship
in 18S1. He leased the Polo grounds,
then located at Fifih avenue and One
Hundred and Tenth street. As the
National League was the parent body.
Day snd Mutrie pocn applied for a
franchise to operate a New York club.
Tflio toam woe n lrlrn a nof1 Iha fllantai
in 18S7 because the players included
big men Buck Kw'ng. Roger Connor.
Tim Keefe, Jim O'Uourke, Mike Slat
tery and others.
During that season the New York
club made $100,000, while in 18S8
Day's profits were said to have been
double that amount. John M. Ward,
George Gore. Mike Tiernan. Mickey
Welsh. Ed Crane, Danny Richardson
Bill Brown. Arthur Whitney. Gil Hef
field, Pat Murphy and Titcorab were
added to the chub's roster from time
to time, so that when the pennant was
captured in 1889 Day was literally
rolling in wealth. He paid more than
$60,000 to the players in salaries from
the Brooklyns. He allowed them to
pocket the New York club's entire
shard of the receipts.
It was during the fo!iowins winter
that the Giants, with Cue exception of
Tiernan, Welch and Murphy, agreed
to desert Day. They had joined the
Brotherhood, which had formed a se
cret agreement with various financial
backers to organize a rival circuit
called the Players League. When
Mutrie informed Day, therefore, that
all but three of , the- Giants had de
cided to jump, the New York magnata
Didn't Believe It.
"I do not believe a word of it! I
have treated my boys . liberally and
fairly. You cannot make roe believe
that they are; not real men. that they
are simply a lot of Ingrates. Why,
they haven't said a "word to me about
this - brotherhood -because- they havd ho
grievances I cannot adjust in a few
minutes." . : - :
A week later Day learned that he
had been terribly deceived. Buck Sw
ing and Tim Keefe, who had been his
personal friends, led the revolt Sev
eral Wall street brokers who had ten
dered a banquet to Day just after the
world's series were among the back
ers of the New York Brotherhood Club.
They invited Day to join them, but
he promptly refused.
In the summer of 1890 Day, who had
secured a new team and also had paid
, ' I
$t0.0oo to the late Jchn T. Brush for
Glasscock. Tenny. Rusie. Buckley. Bas
srtt. IoyIe and Scanlon, of the In
dianapolis team, began to fly signals
of distress. His games at the Polo
grounds, which he had built on th
plot at One Hundred and Fifty-fifth
street and Eighth avenue, had attract
ed an average of 200 paid admissions,
so that his losses footed up closo to
$1000 each day.
Other National league club owners
came to Day's assistance with $100,
000 to enable his team to play out the
schedule, but thv also took away his
stock. At the end of this disastrous
year the brotherhood backers, who
had discovered that the public did not
care ror war, tnrew up tneir nanus ana
were glad to consider a plan for con
solidating the rival clubs in the var
ious cities. But John S. Day. froxen
out of the club he organized, was left
without a dollar.
Feds Due For Blowup.
"The present Federal League move
ment reminds me of the old days,"
6aid Day. "The nlayers who have de
serted organized baseball have no
grievances. Neither are they grateful
for the fair treatment they have re
ceived. It is a case of money, not
sentiment, and the backers of the Fed
eral League will soon follow the ex
ample of the men who blindly flnanc
ago. They will quit In disgust ready
ago. They will quit in dusgust ready
to sue for peace with the National and
American leagues.
"The Players' League failed because
the public did not take stock in tin
players' alleged grievances. Then,
again, the conflicting dates, the wrang
ling in the newspapers and the con
tract jumping by stars killed interest
in the game- New York fans know
that the Giants had been well paid
by me and that they had been un
"When I learned that all but three
of my players had deserted me I
was shocked. I couldn't believe that
men whom I had befriended in many
ways were willing to turn their backs
on me without first talking lt over.
But I stuck to the National League as
a matter of principle, and when they
naked me to join their movement It
was an insult pure and simple.
Glad He Made Fight
"It's an old story, but I shall never
forget It- It cut me to the quick to
see my old friends. Buck Ewing. John
Ward. Tim Keefe, Roger Connor and
others playing for a rival club. But
I fought the Brotherhood as far as I
was able to go and I do net regret
