THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
'tas the nlftht before Chrlstmnn and nil through tho natlun
Poor, tired-out random Was thrilled with elation.
liot4 there Wasn't ft. whisper from- bush or blR Icaruo
Or laumilts or Fed rnldsi or trloUi ami Intrigues.
Of Jolly old Santa, who shuts up tho talkers.
The self.advcrtlslnR calamity squawkors, '
And thus give to fahdom. If but for an hour,
A weo chunk of peace, the boat gift In his power.
ROAST BOMBARDIER WELLS FOR NOT GOING TO WAR
Some of the English papers are mentioning Hombnrdler Wells In a rnthor
alighting manner becnuse the Hombnrdler hasn't rc-enllstcd In the army and gone
to the war. The writers on the other sldo seem to think thnt n trained fighting
man should not bo traveling around making money when he might be fighting
for his country. "Freddy" Welsh has also been criticised for leaving England
Just when the demand for voluntcern was becoming Insistent: but Welsh never
was tn the army, never bud n military training and, It he went to the war, would
bo Just an ordinary soldier tike a few hundred thousand others, whereas as
lightweight champion he Is n person of some Importance and Is rapidly acquiring a
fine young fortune. He hnd n hard choice.
Nearly all of tho well-known English boxers to their great and everlasting
credit havo enlisted for the defense of their country. Among theso Is Tiger Smith,
who was a sensation n few yearn ngo until lip met- Tommy Hums. Tiger Smith
Was In the British Indlnn army nnd won so many boxing bouts In India, and In
bo sensational a manner, that ho bought his rcleaso from the service to go after
the heavyweight title.
In addition to the fighters, thousands of the best athletes In other branches
of sport ore now shouldering a gun, either at tho front or eagerly awaiting to
be Ordered there. Wells Is certain tb lose much of his popularity. Maybe lie
thinks It Is better to be alive. Oh, well, what's tho use?
COOMBS MAY TAKE RANK AS LUCKIEST BALL PLAYER
It Is announced thnt John Coombs, who was recently given his unconditional
release by Connie Mack, will play with tho I3rnves next senson. If thnt is true,
and there seems to bo no renson for doubting It, John will soon be In Ira ThomaB'
class. Ira Is known throughout the baseball world as the luckiest man In baseball.
Ho was on two pennant-winning teams with tho Detroit Tigers. Then the wind
changed, but the air currents had nothing "on" Irn. Ho switched to the Athletics
as soon as, the pennant wns switched ,to 2 1st street nnd Lehigh avenue. Now John
Ojombs, after having enjoyed during the last two yearn two slices of world's series
money. Is destined to get another in 1915 as a member of Stalllngs' club. While
this may seem lucky, John Coombs descrvci all he gets out of baHcbnll. He has
been, and It Is to ba hoped he wilt continue to be, one of the world's greatest
pitching exponents. Phlladalphlans wish Kenncbunk a prolongod success on tho
mound, whether ho plays with the Braves or whether ho jumps along with his
former teammates. Bender and Plank, to tho Federal League.
"JIMMY" GILMORE'S LETTER TO SANTA
By FRANK A JIENKE.
Dear Santa: I mn a- man of peace,
I bear all men good will.
It always makes me weep to read
The talo of Jack and JUI.
So when you make my gift bo sure
,k It works no harm at all.
Just bring a storm to wreck the plants
Of organized baseball.
(Signed) JIMMY CJILMORE.
QIVE MANAGERS LONGER TERM
If the new owners of the New York American League club Intend to build
pennant-winning team it Is to ba hoped they will not make the mistake of
Signing a manager for one year and then relieving him of his duties at the end
of that time. "The Idea of each Amerlcnn League club burning over a player ti
the Yankees to strengthen that club Is highly absurd. Tho owners In tho American
League last season had too hard a time battling against a poor season to be'
willing- to give even a friendly enemy a pennant-winning club. As far as the
Athletics are concerned, they havo done their part already. Mack has turned
Daley and Carroll Brownover to the Yankees. Ho did not do this with the par
ticular Idea of helping New York, nnd ho did not claim to do that What he did
was to give the New Yorkers two good men, and that Is all that could reasonably
be asked of him.
"WHITEY" MALLON A REFEREE OF GRIT
Basketball fans of Philadelphia, Reading. Trenton and Camden should rejoice
that a refereo has been found whof Is (strict. This referee Is "Will toy" Mallon. He
Is nof a novice at the game, by 8ny means. On tho contrary, ho Is an experienced,
well-trained basketball man, who knows his business and ,1s not afraid to do what
he thinks Is right, no matter if ho breaks up a team's play for one night as ho
did In Reading In the Trenton game.

BASEBALL SCODT
OUTRIVALS DANTE
TO SIGN PLAYER
'Mike" Kahoe Says He
Went.Down 82 Miles Into
Bowels of Earth to Get
Wilson, "That's All."
NEW YORK, Dec. 2t. ".Mike" Kahoe,
scout for the Washington and Minne
apolis clubs, went down Into a coal mlno
recently to pet the signature of a catcher
who will cet a trial with the Minneapolis
club. In the American Association, next
season.
"His name Is 'Tom' Wilson," said Ka
hoe. "I was told to so to Hartford,
Ncbraskn, where he lived. When I got
to Hartford I found It a town of about
200. In the outskirts was a coal mine.
Inquiry developed the fact that Wilson
was at work In the mine. I decided to
wait until ho came out In the evening- to
sign him up, but I suddenly changed my
mind following a conservation with one
of the armed guards near the mine.
"There's going' to be trouble around
hero pretty soon. Mister," said the guard.
"The regular miners are liable to come In
on any train, and the troops are on the
way. Klffd-n think there'i going to be
some ahootln' hereabouts."
"That was enough for me," continued
Kahoe. "I just made for the mouth of
that mine shaft nnd demanded to bo
taken down. Tho guards around there
looked me over. I thought sure they
were going to 'frisk' me, hut they didn't,
because I presented cards and lotters that
were convincing proof that I wasn't a
spy.
"Well, after going down and down for
about 82 miles the bucket that I was
rldlnir In reached the bottom. I was led
for three or four miles farther and pretty
soon I came upon a gang of men. My
guide pointed out one and said:
" 'That's Wilson.1
"I told Wilson that I had come to sign
htm up for the Minneapolis club, offered
him terms and he said they were satis
factory. Then he signed the contract and
I started for the top of the earth once
more. I got there and I got out of town
Just before the soldiers arrived."
"What did Wilson look HkeT" Kahoe
was asked.
"Say, I wouldn't know him again If I
saw him on the street or In a mine,"
answered the scout. "All those fellows
looked alike down there. They all were
about as black and sooty as could be.
Maybe the guide gave me the wrong
steer and maybe I signed up the wrong
man. but I took a chance on that rather
than ban,' around that town any longer
than I had to,"

MYSTERY SHROUDS
YANKEE BALL CLUB
PURCHASE TODAY
To All Practical Purposes,
New York Americans
Have Been Sold to Rup
pert and Huston Combine.
NKW YOHK, Dec 24. To all practical
Intents and purposes (savo those ot pub
lication) the New York American League
Club has been sold to Colonel Jacob Hup
pert, Jr., anil Captain T. L. Huston.
These new owners, no doubt profiting
by a good lesson In American League
etiquette at Chicago, maintained a most
discreet silence yesterday morning on
their arrival here with John J, McOraw
and Joseph J. Lannln. 'But a very close
friend who had advised them In their
negotiations and who accompanied them
cast stated positively that the official
transfer of stock was only a matter of
tlmo.
"The club has been sold," said he. "Of
course the stock has not as yet been
transferred and will not be till tho pur
chase price Is ready to be tendered, It
takes a great deal of time to complete
the rrmuy angles of a deal of such mag
nitude Tho club no doubt lids assets
and nubilities outstanding. Messrs, Rup
pert and Huston, naturally, will Insist
upon taking the property without Incum
brances. They have agreed to meet Mr,
Farrell's terms and will assume active
charge as soon as the present ownership
Is ready for a business accounting."
Joseph J. Lannln, who came east with
Messrs, Ituppert and Huston, was as non
committal as the now owners, but, pinned
right down to the solemn truth, he ven
tured an opinion that "the deal was as
good as closed." McOraw made like ad
missions. Frank J. Farrell, however, would not
admit any such thing. He issued a rather
heated Interview, fn which he said thqt
the club was on the market to the first'
man that would pay 1500,000. He In.
lituatrd that Colonel Ruppert was not
Inclined to go so high and that conse
quently the possibility of sale In (hat
quarter was as good as dead.
CEDAB BOOIAIi TO HOLD BUN
The Cedar Social Club will hold Its
first five-mile Christmas street marathon
run tomorrow afternoon. Tho race will
start at Ann and Almond streets. Port
Richmond, at 3 p. m. Young McGovern,
