SPORTINGNEWS. The Harrlman Syndicate Inter ested In New More. Said to Be Backing the Ameri can League Yenture. t . BEHIND G0TIL4M TEAM. Made the St. Joe Club a Success in Western League. Conducted It in Connection With Street Car Interest!. New York, Aug. 29. It was stated to iflay on good authority that the Harrl man syndicate will be the backers of the American league baseball club which is to be put in New York next year. W. T. Van Brunt, who. has been one of the backers of the St. Joe West ern league club and representative of the Harrlman interests in that city, will be the new president of the New York American league baseball club. This is said to be a shrewd political move on the part of the Harrlman syndicate against Tammany hall through Andrew lYeedman. According to the Informant. Ban Johnson, W. T. Van Brunt and another representative of the Harrlman syndi cate have been In conference in this city several times lately. Van Brunt has met Ban Johnson in Chicago In the latter's office numerous times within the last few weeks, and the two are said to have held long talks over the forma tion of the new club. These confer ences are said to have resulted in the present plans whereby the American league Is enabled to command suffi cient capital to finance Its new club in this city and at the same time furnish a lever to the Harriman people to be used against Andrew Freedman and the Tammany hall ring. Van Brunt, who has been running the St. Joe club, was the president of the St Joe street railway company until recently. A couple of weeks ago the control of these interests was sold by the Harriman syndicate, which had owned t em for some time, to other capital. From a poorly, paying prop erty they were made to pay large divi dends. One of the features of the amusement park run by the railroad was the 8t. Joe Western league base ball club, most of the capital for which was put up by the railroad, represented by Van Brunt. The latter has become a fan. If the stories told are true, and succeeded in Interesting the Harriman people in a baseball team In New York. It was said that one of the conditions under which the big railroad syndicate went Into the deal was that the club should be made a winner capable of staying in the first division. Not only would this then be a big paying busi ness, but it would also give the Harrl man syndicate the lever in New York for which they have been seeking." W. T..Van Brunt is said to have had charge of E. M. Harriman's yacht for some time, and it was while in thla capacity that he first attracted the at tention of Mr. Harriman. When the latter bought the S. Joe street railway Interests Van Brunt was put at the head of them, and his success in that capacity is said to have resulted In the present move on the part of the Harri man interests. ; Van Brunt is said to have been fa vored during his connection with the Western league by President Hart or the Nationals, yet the present move is taken against the National league. It is said that Van Brunt's desire to break into baseball In the major leagues led him to take the first chance offered, which was that of the American league. It is said here today that Ban John son will return for another conference with his new backers before he returns riome. The removal of the American league headquarters from Chicago to this city is said te be a matter of the Immediate future, a move which will be made at the end of the present base ball season. JAS. B.

"I will not sign a Cincinnati contract at this time, even if I do go east with the team," said Sam Crawford. In making this decla ration Crawford practically admits that Jie is not in a position where he can negotiate with the Cincinnati club for next season, in that he has bound him self elsewhere for the year of 1903. If 'President Herrmann sticks to his reso lution to have a straight declaration from Crawford and Crawford is honest in making it. "Wahoo Sam" will not go east with the team.. Crawford refuses to say that he lias signed . with the American league for next season, nor does he deny that he has done so. FLYING AT PROVIDENCE. , Anaconda Beat Prince Alert Out in Very Fast Time.
