One of IU Greatest Pitchers.
Several years ago the Yankees paid

An even bigger cush consideration was

Fe.leial league. The Giants paid J33.- l mucn money a inr one leiiuenu niui
000 for Kauft and something like $10,000
more for the battery.
In Alexander the Cubs get one of the
mot remarkable pitchers who ever put
four years ago. when he carried tho
prestige of Governor of Pennsylvania.
The league also was unwilling to renew
the clause In Tener's contract, which
nounced estenlay. Tub Sun predicted
as much In yesterday's paper. The ques
tion of the length of the schedule, player
limit, salary reductions, war taxes, Ac,
have all been left over for the Joint
meeting with the American League.
Pennant Awarded to tllants.
The league meeting was preceded by
a meeting of the bosrd of directors,
who also held a routine meeting. The
pennant for 117 was awarded to the
New Tork club, and the directors alto
voted to continue the pension annually
paid to Mrs. Mary Hulllam Johnson,
the Invalid sister of former President
Harry l'ulllam. The pending suit of
the Baltimore Federal League direc
tors also again was hashed up and the
plans to combat It discussed.
The National League voted to resume
Its meeting at 0 o'clock this morning.

Clubs I'UTvllHnB to Contlnae
The Providence, Richmond and RqcIi--ester
clubs announce that they are un
willing to continue, and It Is doubtful If
any of these clubs wtfuld stick even If a
majority vote favored a 191$ campaign.
Both Newark and Montreal announced
that they were on the fence and were
willing to go with the majority, but
Mntreal Is very cool on the proposition,
and Llchtenhetm does not deny that he
would be pretty well satisfied If the
league voted to disband for the war.
A further Indication of the weakness
of the leaguo was revealed In the whole
sale salary cut administered upon Presl-dont-Keeretary-Trcasury
salary was reduced from $7,500 to
$7,600 a year. It might he added that
this vote was not unanimous.
Only a week ago Barrow was In Buf
falo trying to hold the tattered bits of
the Buffalo club together, but said at
this time It Is next to Impossible to In
trest a business man tn baseball.
Barrow has taken his cut In salary to
heart, especially after the struggle he
has made for four years to keep the
league afloat and to steer It through the
agitated seas the International has been
forced to navigate.

Baker's move appears to have been a misguided one from the stand
point of playing strength, sentiment and business. However, there Is a
chance that eventually he will find himself justified In the last named of
the trio of considerations. Nobody knows what the coming season may
have In storo for professional baseball. The Philadelphia club may find
that $50,000 Is a far more potent and satisfying possession than Alexander
Baker himself last night attempted to lustlfy the sale from a business
rtandpolnt. "It Is a business matter ure and simple with me," said the
Phillies' owner. "Alexander Is more than 30 now. He hus been In the
iimjora seven beasons nnd undoubtedly Is slipping. It Is true that lie won
thirty games last summer, hut llvo of the victories came after New York
already had won the pennant There's another question to take Into con
sideration. Aloxandcr has a contract which calls for an annual salary or
$12,000. That sum is more than tho club can afford, especially In a wrar
AJeraader Sabjeet to Army Draft.
"Then again, you must remember that Alexander Is subject to the
army draft. I believe that Klllefer ts tn a similar situation. I sold Klllefer
because at the 'end of last season he told me that he no longer cared to
play for us. I did not want to keep him under those circumstances. Of
course. I know I will be criticised In Philadelphia for my action, but the
fact la that with our slurs, nnd the club fighting hard for the pennant, wc
got tiothliiK likp the support we merited last season. I understand that
I'rende rgast uud Dilhoefer, whom wo acquired In the deal, aro capable players
and should nmlie ood under Moran."
Baker intimated that Alexander had not kept In the best of condition
last season. He looks for a littlo resentment next summer, but Is sure
that before long the club will rehabilitate Itself. He figures that lost sum
mer the fans began to return to Connie Mack and that they will come
back to the Phillies. But has the Philadelphia club of the National League
a master rcorpanlzer of the Mack tvpe?

A war year, and $50,000 Is paid for two baseball players! Rather a
far cry from the day when the old Baltimore club sold John McGraw, Wllbert
Robinson and Billy Kelster a great trio ln those days to the St. Louis
club for $15,000. At that time the deal was regarded as the last word ln
baseball extravagance. That same year 1000, with the reduction of the
National League from a twelve to an eight club circuit Pittsburg gave
J-.', 000 and five players, one of whom was Jack Chcsbro, for fourteen men
of the Louisville club.
In more recent years wo have had the famous purchase of Marty O'Toolo
by Pittsburg for $22,500, the Collins and Speaker deals, each Involving
$50,000, and the Giants' purchase of Kauff, Rarlden and Anderson for
approximately $46,000. W. F. Baker seems to be right baseball la much

Hendricks Still Hopes to Lead Cardinals.
Jack Hendricks got here yesterday, still very much Imbued with .
desire to become the manager of the St. Louis Nationals. Hendricks
declared that while It was true that he had an option on the Indianapolis
o!uh the sale of the team to the parties represented by him would not mean
liih continued connection with the Hooslers.
"On the contrary." said Hendricks, "if the. men for whom I huve
obtained the option get the club I will be free to go with Branch Rickey.
The option lias twenty iljys to run. If the club is not sold I suppose I
still will have that $l,"i,n00 club over my head. One thing Is sure. The
nt xt minor league contract I will have to fclgn will be so worded that I
will nut be kept from advancing myself should a chance be offered me."

Know for a certainty. The outlook for its opening the season Is us dark
as tho inside of your vest pocket. Ed Barrow announced at the end of
yesterdny's session that severul clubs, Richmond Included, were not wllllnc;
in resume opfrntlons. Immediately nfterward wo met B, W. Wilson, presi
dent of the Richmond club. "I hear that Barrow said that Richmond did
not want to continue," said Wilson. "As far as I know Richmond Is ready
to open the season. Why, this morning Borrow camo to me and asked
m to sell the Richmond franchise for what we paid for It, and I refused
point blank to eell out. I understand they want to put the franchise In
a nearby city. But wo will stick by the guns."
When Jack Dunn was told that Barrow had announced that If the
league opened next season It would return to the old one umpire system
tho Baltimore manager declared, "We never decided that. We never even
spoke about umpires." Kvidently all waa not sweet at that session. What
ever transpired nt tho meeting eterday, the reduction of Barrow's salary
Included, was arranged at a meeting of five owners at the Belmont tho
nlcht before. In view of the fact that If It hud not been for Barrow tho
league would have tone up In smoke long ago some of the owners leave
themselves open to being labelled as Ingrates.

Waller J. Salmon, the noted horse
show exhibitor, who made his debut on
tho turf last Hcason, has engaged Oscar
O.'ihlll to train Ills thoroughbreds next
year. Oahlll is well known in the tint
tlnx horsu world. He was associated for
many years with Dick Benson, who had
charge of tho Jamc lliitler Mring of
horses befoie Jack McCormack took over
that stable two years ngo.
Mr, Salmon lias fourteen thorough
lueds, ten of which aro imported year

They are now stationed at Slieepshead

Championship tournaments next sea-,
son, If there are any, under the aui-
plces of the Metropolitan Oolf Associa
tion will be conducted by tho same clubs
which were awarded the events a year
ago. That much was made clear at the,
association's annual meeting held In the"
office of J. B. c. Tappan, the retiring,
president, 49 Wall street, last night. It.
was noticed, however, that the officials,
and delegates carefully avoided any dls-
cusslon as to the advisability of a re-,
sumption of championship play. .
The courses selected last year were'.
Brooklawn Country Club, at Bridgeport,.
Conn., for the amateur ; the North Shore,
Country Club, on Long Island, for tha'
open, and the Slwanoy Country Club for.
the junior. C. G. Waldo, the Brooklawn,
delegate, stated that his club remained,
willing to handle the amateur whenever
It was the Judgment ot the association,
that such an evont should take place,,
while J. Clarence Davles, representing
the North Shore Club, spoke In a similar,
vein regarding the open,
Slwanoy was not represented, and J.,
B. Kltlman, on behalf ot the Richmond.
County Country Club, offered his course,
for the Junior In the event that for any
reason Slwanoy should not caro to con
duct the championship.
May Return to Tourney Play. ,
Rather from Informal talks before and
after the meeting It was gathered that
the most that may be expected from the
association tn a competitive way will be
a partial return to the Invitation tour
nament game. It may be a litis later
that the executive committee will en
courage the member clubs to conduct
short events on the two day order, i
Because E. Mortimer Barnes, the re
tiring secretary, was not on hand tov
read his report,, having gone to Wash
'Ington as a member of the ordnance de
partment, the ceremony was omitted.
The report was ln printed form, however,
and all the delegates had a copy.
Briefly it stated that the association con
sisted of eighty-four clubs In January.
1917, and that during the year two new
ones were elected to membership, the
Marino and Field and the Wheatley
HIIIh Golf Club. One club, Dyker
Meadow, passed out of existence.
There were 625 names on the handi
cap list, as against 82S the previous
The trensurer's report made by George
H. Barnes showed a balance on hand of
$1,983.53, as ngainst $1,587.88 a year
Before retiring from office Tappan ex
plained at length how the association
raised nearly $60,000 on Memorial Day
for the purpose of equipping ambulances
In France. The a-Koclatlon not only has
100 per cent, of tht sum raised but 3
per cent. Interest, which has amounted
to something like $700.
Tappan in his reference to the subject
said that ln addition to the total fund
of io, 520.16 raised by clubs on Memo
rial Day a belated contribution of $97
had been received from the Bellport
Golf Club. Thus a trifle more than $S,
000 will be turned over to the American
Red Cross. Yesterday Barnes received
the following telegram from Kllot Wsds
worth, acting chairman of the Rd
Red Cross tn Accept Fonda.
"American Ri ss will be glad to
receive funds co i and will If possi
ble use same foi i purchase of ambu
lances and will make effort to have
names of clube contributing attached to
ambulancee. V efer to have the Red
Cross purchase ambulances for which
ever forclRii country most need it. As
sume this Is satisfactory to you."
In accordance with custom the elec
tion was only a matter of form, the
.ecretary being instructed to cart one
ballot. Tappan stated that Mortimer
Barnes had asked him to suggest some
other name for tho vice-presidency, as
ho would be away, but the chair said ho
didn't agree with the absent member
and In this ho was backed up by the
delegates, who elected the following
