The story of Trunk Chance's rpslKim
tlon from the Now York Amorlonn League
club Is one ns undent ns the lmtlonal
eamo Itself. It hus oor been the policy
of the majority of club owners to adopt
a shifting method of developing a team,
rather than one of watchful waiting,
which has been so highly successful In
the case of the Athletics of this cltv
and the Giants of New York
Frank Chance did not reMgtt because
he had not developed a club with could
compete with the better organizations ot
Ban Johnson's circuit, but because lip
was not allowed to develop It This
friction between the owneis and the man
agers Is the thorn In the side of base
ball, and at times ha actually been a
menace to Its very elstence
To build up a winning ball club, Connie
Mack says, requires at least live ears
Chance has been In New York a little
less than two seasons. It Is true that
ho does not seem to have made nnv more
progress this jonr than lie had at the
close of the season of 1511. Yet tTifi
would probably be the ui-i even If he had
the nucleus of a winning club around
which to build. In thH cne the team
might go along mote or less IndlfferentH
for a couple of vear? ;:ien suddenH
Jump Into the running without warning,
Just as the St Louis Browns did at the
beginning of this season The trans
Mlsslsslpplans were enabled to make a
fight because that team, for the most
part, had been playing together long be
fore Branch Rleke wns even considered
as a managerial possibility
Now that Chance has decided that he
cannot move along In harmonv with the
owners of the Yankees, the fans of New
York win have the dissatisfaction of i Are Threatening Boston Braves

orala discarded merely because the moguls
havo ndt learned the lesson that a man
ager must bo supreme In his department,
nnd that to be successful he must hold
the reins In his own hands and not be
driven with a halter around his own
neck.
From several quarters theft; seems to
be a rumor afloat that, after all. Chance
will remain In New York, at least, for the
rest of the season. That, however, has
little hearing on the question Chance
has been hampered and he will continue
to bo hampered as long ns the moCuls
of the Highlanders bellee that they know
more about running the details of a ball
club than one who has captured three
pennants.

NEW YORK. Sept 14. Passed up as

Following their double Wctory over the

Coming strong behind the Cardinals

GREAT GOLF WEEK
USHERED IN WITH
WHITEMARSH TEST
Sea-Now,
Climax of the Fall
son to Be Witnessed
and Stick Wielders Are in
Their Glory.
Golfing events hate been coming thick
nnd fast recently, but this Wcok will wit
ness the cllm.ix of tho fall' season. To
morrow there will be an event of special
Intel est at the Whltemarsh Valley
Country Club which will be In the nattiic
of a curtain rnlscr to the annual open
tournnmont of the dolt Association of
Philadelphia.
With Its usual generosity the White
marsh A'allcy Country Club has put up
$100 for an amateur-professional tourna
ment. It will bo a best ball match with
nn amateur nnd a professional! on each
side. All nmatcura and professional of
clubs belonging to the United States Golf
Arsoclntlon nro eligible to compete. This
ctent Is qulto a novol ono and It should
piovo decidedly Interesting and, what Is
more, It will servo ns excellent practice
for thoso competing In tho championship
tho next day.
In former years the open championship
of Philadelphia was only at thirty-six
holes, but this j car tho Golf Association
viy tvlsclv decided to extend It to sev
cnty-twn. Thlrty-sK holes, therefore, will
bo played on Wednesday nnd the remain
ing thlity-slx on Thursday. Very llbeial
prizes have been put up by the assocla
tlon. Tho winner will receive $160, second,
$100: third, $70: fourth, $10; Ilfth, $20, and
sixth, $10 $100 In prize money In nil. Ono
thing Is certain, nnd that Is that tho
tournament will be moro liberally patron
ized than In past years. Many of tho pro
fessionals who compotcd nt Spring Lake
will ba here. Including Wnltei Hngeti, tho
open champion; James If. Barnes, the
Western champion; Isaac Macklo, the
winner of the Shntvnce tournament; Joo
Mitchell, runner-up nt Shawnee; Elmer
Lot lug, of Spring I.nko, Fred McLcod,
of Washington; Tom McNnmnrn, of Bos
ton: Hcibeit Strong, of Inwood; Ixmls
telllet, of Cnnoe Brook, and, o course, all
tho local professionals. The Whltemarsh
couiso Is In lino condition at the present
time, nnd nlthough It Is by no means easy
somo lino scores should be made.
One ot tho most popular tournaments
of the local season will be played on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the
Philadelphia Cricket Club, St. Martin's.
The Invitation tournament of the Phila
delphia Cricket Club for the St. Martin's
cup Invariably draws b, record entry and
there Is no reason to suppose that this
year's event will be an exception to the
In' addition to the St Martin's cup, th
President's. Governors' and Players' cups
will be competed for nnd In each event
there will be a prize for tho runner-up.
An event of great Itnportancs will be
staged at the Merlon Cricket Club,
Haverford, tomorrow, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, when
the nnnual competitions for tho Inter
collegiate tennis championship will b
played. Iioet jear Princeton sprang a
big surprise by winning the Isaac H,
Clothier cup outright, but this year Har
vard should experience no difficulty In
winning the now trophy for the first
time. Represented by II, Morris Wll.
Hams, 2d, the national singles champion,
It Is difficult to Imagine either Yale,
Princeton, the University of Pennsyl.
vnnla or any other university or college
standing a ghost of a chance against
Harvard. Williams Is a Philadelphia
and this fact alone Is sure to attract
a big attendance nt the Merlon Cricket
Club each day. Play will take plact
In both morning and afternoon.
