ChaVJey p.obm'S Fate Yet Unsettled Yankee Sale Expected
tci Be Consummated Today Barnstormers Meeting
With Continued Success in thc West.
With the ccptlon ot the Walter Johnson case this week may see the end of the
many baser-all upheaval which havo shaken the Armament ot the national past me
for the laat two months. Tho matters yet to be decided are largely of local im
portance, having td do with the disposition of Charley Dooln, tho decision of Hans
tobert and the selection of players by Mnnager Moran from .the Boston Braves.
AH of these, questions will probably be Bettled once for all by the end of the week.
President Baker, of tho Phillies, Is In the city today and la making: Anal arrange
ments for his conference In New Tork tomorrow or "Wednesday with his manager,
Mornn, and president James Oaffney, of the Uoston club. At that conference the
players Whom the Phillies Wilt get In exchange for Bherwood Magce wilt be named.
Although Manager Btalllngs, of tho World's Champions, will not be present, he has
been in close touch with the owner of the Braves, una ne nas nrauy !' -consent
for the trading of certain players from whom Manager Moran will make ma
final selection. It Is known that Moran would be pleased to add to the Phlliy roster
Whttted, the Boston Ihflelder, and Tyler, the left-hnndod hurler, who was one of tho
- mainstays of tho Braves last season. While It Is not known definitely whether
'Manager Btalllngs Is willing to part with Tyler or not, It Is almost certain that, having
ot Magee's signature to a contract, he will go tho limit to satisfy the comparatively
meagre demands of the 1'hlllles.

It Is reported that the deal for tho Yankee ealo will bo consummated today. The
conference held on Saturday between Prank Fnrrell., HuBton and nupert Indicates
that matters are drawing to a head and if. the statements given out can bo relied
upon, either the Rupert-Huston deal will bo put through today or it will bo entirely off.
' While nil of the demands made by the prospective buyers have not beon made
'public It has leaked out In various ways that tho actual-details of tho purchase aro
agreeable to Rupert and Huston, except for tho specific value. If a figure can be
found which suits both the purchasers and tho present owners, tho transfer of tho
.. Yankees to now-hnndsmay bo expected bofpre'tomorrow morning.
'Where Charley Dooln will play this yenr Is a matter which Is extremely Inter
i estlng to. every one allied with basoball. Dooln has stated that he will under no
clrcumstancea remain with the Phillies. Tho local managemont wishes to trado or
sell the ex-manager, but thus' for thore haB boon no satisfactory agreement reached.
There s rio doubt that If tho Phillies would give Dooln, his unconditional release
he could easily get the contract he wants from a number of clubs in the
National League. But when tho purchase prlco is added to Dooln's contract figures
some of the owners havo balked. ., .
Nevertheless. It Is fairly certain that within a short spaco of time some disposi
tion will be made of Dooln, and the chances are that ho will go with some club
In Xhe" National League. Tho Federal Leaguo last year offered Dooln far more than
he hj,d,peon getting, with tho Phillies, but ho refused to leave organized baseball.
.Now organized baseball should, even If It does not, take care of Dooln. He Is still
ono of the ' best receivers. In the National League. With the managerial weight
lifted from his shoulders ho will lie even better than he has been during the last two
or three years with tho Phillies. Therefore It Is not only tho. duty of some club
to take Dooln, but It would bo to some club's best Interest as well.
- if "The real, reason' for the bewildering 'smashup of "championship teams." Bays Bert
""'Cunningham, star pltcher'of the long ago, "Is generally because tho veteran pitchers
Jaye, lost' their cunning or strength and do 'not realize 1L"
with his experience. hlB crafty skill, and, above all, his knowledge of tho
' "various batters, ho can go along and win a majority pf his games. Ho Is getting
hit a little harder than' before, and they are getting moro runs off his delivery, but
he uses the wise old head more effectively' than ever, and cornea to tho end of tho
season apparently unshaken. Then he goes against a club of strangers, fellows' who
, neither fear nor respect him, nnd ho gets the lining beaten out' of 'hl.m by men whom
he could have easily 'defeated a couple of years before
' "I well remember, when I wn Just going out, how I could get by with the older
batsmen, whose weaknesses I knew, but when a rrowd of newcomers attacked me I
was through. Buch has been the dope In most of tho big' series, and It Is only natural
that it Bhould be just that way,"

Despite, the rumors current around National- Commission headquarters- that
,,. barnslorm.lng will be tabooed In the future by the highest baseball tribunal, the
success, of the AH American-All-National tour may dampen the ardor of the enemies
of this feature. Letters received here from the players who are now winding up the
tour Slate, that In every way th trip has been successful which means that It has
been a financial success. The trouble which arose soon after the teams bogan playing
on the coast served to be somewhat disagreeable, but It resulted In- better baseball,
-'' hence the fans of tho Far West flocked to tho games, knowing that a real game
hofslmplyan exhibition was to be seen.
-. ' C Ellis Williams, of Iowa City High Bchool, Iowa City, la.. Is to be congratulated
for having opened up a new avenue of- sport for women. His name will go down in
aUiirtlo history as the first toform a. girls' rifle team. He has. planned to give the
. "t girls b. thorpugh training In rifle; practice, and before many years he hopes to have
.!. leagus formed such, as tho schoolboys of the country now enjoy. Itlfle shooting Is
i.v'n-spprt In" which women should .excel. There are many famous women shots who
have" tf roved that they possess as much nqrve and skill as the men. Williams, who
''is a, cntck shot himself, In certain to develop a good team, and we hope that now he
has started the ball rolling a great wave of interest wU develop. It Is not unladylike
to handle a gun, and certainly there Is not a more entertaining pastime.
.v Jn recent cs.se in New York It was again clearly demonstrated that the State
- Boxing Commission Is a great Institution. In this Instance the boxer proflted. E.
Lelchtman, of the battleship Utah, who was not paid f?7 due him by the Irving
Athletic 'Club, received the consideration of the commission, which ordered the club
to turn Wfr thp agreed amount. At other times the commission' has brought the
boxer to task, so that the score stands "love all," The commission serves the Joint
i purpose' o'( protecting the promoter and the boxer as well. r

remember Saturday. The day marked Its first
Victory of the season. Kensington waa Ha

fact that the uptown team Journeyed to Nor
ristown with but nine playera.

Allied League teams over the United League
teams Is still to be proven.. Of the nve games
played between clubs of tha two leaguee tha
bast the Allied representatives could do was to
draw three of them.
At tha end of the first half of Saturday's
game with Centenary. Bosemont Celtlo looked
like a 10 to 1 shot for victory, for they had
made rings around Centenary, and were lead
