Canadian Racing Revived
J~\EVOTEES of the American turf will be pleased to learn that the
Canadian racing circuit plans to operate in 1919. This will he wel?
eome news to thc enthusiasts of tlie East for the East has more than
enough horses to supply the metropolitan demands and the more tracks
that operate?provided always there are enough thoroughbreds of class
to maintain Mgh class competition?the better it is for thc sport.
Western horses and horsemen always have been a thorn in the side
?. f racing at the Eastern tracks. And this was especialiy true last season
when the death of racing elsewhere sent the Western stables to this part
of the country. Much of the apparent manipulation concerned Western
interests. Empire City. for instance, always has been a hotbed i'or morc
or less sharp practice for the boys from Missouri.
WOODBINE MEETING ASSURED
Racing in Canada, which was discontinued for "the duration of the
war," especialiy at the Woodbine track of Toronto and around Montrea]
has ever been of an edifying type that cannot fail to benefit the turf.
That Woodbine is preparing to open as usual next May we have. on the
word of Joseph E. Seagram president of the Ontario Jockey Club. A few
details remain to be adjusted before the announcement of dates. The
half-milers must be squelched for one thing. Mr. Seagram made this
official announcement at the Guelph (Ont.) ;'- rse Show recently. Mr.
Hendrie's announcement as to plans for Woodbine were further verified
by the admissions of W. P. Fraser, secretary of the Ontario Jockey Club.
Still Hope for England
\,'T IKE McNALLY, infielder of the world champion Boston Red Sox,
iVJL w}-l0 haci tne pieasure 0f mitting King George last July 4 after par
ticipating in a game played between teams representing the United
States Army and Navy, is home from serviee with Uncle Sam's fleet. .
McNally says that hc believes baseball is going to become popular
in England. Last summer he said he learned that quite a few schools
had organized baseball clubs and were playing games several times a
week. In other classes, he also said, the people were showing an interest
in the game, and while he doubts the American sport can replace cricket
as the Englishman's favorite outdoor amusement, he. does look for base?
ball to become one of the country's leading sports.
McNally also took occasion to rcfer to the remarkable pitching dis?
played by Herb Pennock in the games played in England by the Navy
team. Iie said the left-hander's old weakness of poor control was over?
come and that he showed more stuff than ever before. He predicts big
things for Pennock when he returns to thc major leagues.

By Charles A. Taylor
Benny Kauff and his whole wardrobe
signed up with the Giants yesterday
afternoon for one year. What stipend
Benny is to receive for his services was
not made pubiic, but it is fair to as
sume that his monthly wage will far
exceed that he obtained from Uncle
Sam during his few months' experience
as a soldier boy.
It will be remembered that Benny
waa called to Camp Sherman just when
rhe Chicago Cubs were cutting big
slices off the tremendoua lead the
Giants had pilcd up in the pennant race
of last ycar. In fact, many of the
eri ies and dopesters figured that had
ined with the McGrawmen
the Cu ivou , never have swung
through to the heights.
But, as fond as Benny was of swing
ing his old home run bat to tho acclaim
of thc baseball popuiace, he took up
his military joh with all seriousness
and lof. the serviee as a sergeant. He
was anxious to get overseas, but fate
therwise, so" Benny remained
in camp in his home state until Mr.
Armistice cut short his military career.
Record Well Known
As far as his baseball prowess is
concerned, there is no need to delve
deeply into the records of the diamond
to bring it once again to the surface.
Benny has not been away from the bat
bag long enough to require a recapitu
lation of his history and deeds.
lt might be recalled, however, that,
Benny had a brief and unsatisfactory
trial with the Yankees back in 1912.
But it was with the departed Feds that
he lirst began to wield the old war club
with such fift'ect as to attract the espe
cial attention of fandom. John J. Mc?
Graw, manager of the Giants, watched
his career with the "insurgents" close
ly and when the "break" came thc Xew
York club put up a large-sized bundle
of cash co land Benjamin.
The judgment of McGraw proved cor
rect, for Benny proved a mighty hi Ip
i bal and as guardian of centre
!!" had his slumps and got his
pannings, but one asset Benny always
Lo endear him to the man?
ager and the fan, and that was the
spirit h" put in his work. Benny wns
doing hi.-. darndest all the time, and no
one felt more peevish over his some
what frequent strilce-outs with three
on than little Benny himself.
New York is mightily tickled to reach
its arms out wide and far to weleome
Benny's return to the fold.
Lieutenant Colonel Huston, part
owner of the Yankees, is beginning to
believe that shaking hands if carried
to excess is a strain comparablc with
building railroads and bridges under
shejl fire. Yesterday, the second day
of the "Cap's" furlough here, was a
repetition of his Thursday experience.
Wherever "Cap" went about town it
was greeting after greeting.
ln fact, hc has been so busy saving
"howdy" that he has not had a chance
to get posted regarding the politics
of baseball. When asked if he favored
ii one-maa commission "Cap" replied
that it would naturally depend on the
man. He was very much interested
in learning of the offer made to ex
President Taft by Harry Hempstead,
of the New York National League club,
and Harry Frazee, head oi" the Boston
American leaguers. Aside from pay
ing tribute to the qualitications of Mr.
Taft for such a post, "Cap" again said
he was not. just ready to express any
opinions, so R;n Johnson will have to
After looking over ihe theatrical at?
tract ions. the "Cap" ordered seats for
"The Girl Behind the Gun" and nobody
was surprised at his selection.
A report comes from Boston that
the Braves have been purchased by
former JMayor Curley and Charles
7.7;.. the lattcr a banker, for $100,000,
the new owners securing 78 per cent of
the itock of the club. Along with thc
