Toll of death for 1914
1 , , 1 I, i.
jrficif It Is Considered "Chat
Engaged in Various
'Appear Quite so Terrible.
(, TUa toll of life And limb exacted by sport Is declining. Careful recoras kept of
tthft threo major iporta for the season just closed show that Americans are attain
Intf a m6ra safe, and sano policy on their many playgrounds and In the forests. Of
the millions of red-blooded American men nnd boys Who have crone Into the woods
fwith the rifle, blaved the ureal national cimn of baseball nnd nut their muscles to
jihe" strenuous tests of football, only 161
ina tabulators Classed an serious total 40S0, nnd of this number mny nan navo
Jntlrely recovered.
When one stops to think of the many -who engage In these three nrcat pastimes,
fully 16,000,000 at the least testlmate, the toll of deaths nnd injuries does not seem
so terrible. In fact, It Is believed that the same number of men nnd boys, If engaged
during" the same number of hours In work or In travel, would meet with Injury and
death In proportion fully na great as they did In their favorite sports.
he hunting fatalities of the year fell off from 133 last year, although the Injurlos
Jumped from 125 to 162. The comparison shows a satisfactory gain for sane hunting.
A campaign of warning was waged In each of the IS States from which tho figures are
drawn. Wisconsin lost 33 hunters, Michigan 27, Minnesota 1J. Michigan had 42 In
jured huntsmen, Wisconsin 36 nnd Washington 20. From the statistics of the game
license bureaus, It Is estimated that 150,000 hunted deer during tho open soason.
Baseball, In which nearly every boy In America Indulged, and fully one-flfth of
American men took part, besides the numberless professional and semi-professional
players, makes a remarkably good showing with only 35 deaths attributable to In
juries received In tho game. Of this number, 20 were hit by pitched balls, five were
truck with bats, four over-exerted themselves, ono was hurt sliding to base, nnd
ene wub killed In n fight. Of tho 018 Injurlos recorded ns apparently serious, 314
1 vera of broken limbs, 18 had concussion of tho brain, 13 had their skulls fractured,
rour were paralyzed, 37 received serious strains, 26 were spiked, 17 received fractures,
even were put out of tho running by dislocations, and 10 were victims of torn liga
ments. In tho minor leagues, 116 wero Injured; In the American League, 69; National
League 61; Federal League, 66, and on college teams, 8.
Football, the most strenuous of American games, exacts a remarkably light toll
this year. Of course, tho death list of 15 does not convoy the full seriousness of the
game. Among tho Injured and they so many nnd constant that they could not
all be accurately tabulated many nro permanently Injured. Considering tho great
numbers of school teams, college teams and boys who took part In tho game this
year, and the opportunities for rough work which are always present In the game
the wonder Is that tho death list Is oo omnll. This Is attributed In part to tho thor
oughly trained condition of tho school and college teams, and the careful selection
cf the most hardy youths to mako up the teams. Only two of the fatalities were
among college men; one of these dlod from heart dlsenso nnd the other from Injuries
!n a class game. The others were members of high schools, preparatory schools or
free lance teams. None of the boya was over 20 years of age. Tackling was tho
principal cause of the Injuries that resulted In death. Of the 4000 nnd more cases
f Injury noted, fully half nro known to have entirely recovered, and It Is estimated
that tho recoveries will roach three-quarters of the number.
Whon It Is considered the number of people who enjoy sports, tho loss of life
nd the number of serious accidents Is comparatively nothing.
The world's champion Boston Braves nro making a bid for tlie services of
Third Baseman Hans Lobert, of tho Phillies, nnd Judging by President Gaffney's
statement he wants Lobert by all means. Hero's the message sent out from
Boston today:
I'm going to get Hans Lobert for the Braves, If I can possibly pull off
1 the deal, declared President James C, Gaffney, of the world's champions,
at his room In tho Copley Plaza, as ho took a moment from peering over
plans of his new ball park In Allston.
I am camping on the trail of President Baker, of tho Phillies, all tho
time. When I get back to New Tori: later In the week I hopo to be able
to come to somo sort of an agreement on this matter.
It'ej safe to say thqj the names of tho Boston Braves who will go to the
Phillies as part of the Sherwood Magee trado will not be known until I
have had several talks with Manager George T. Stalllngs, In Georgia, next
week or the week after. Possibly the names of the players to go will not
be made known even then.
A, soccer match betwoen Northeast High School and Glrard College to decide tho
Scholastic championship of tho city would attract as much Interest ns tho three-
""eornered football series between West Philadelphia, Northeast and Central high
schools. It would also bo tho only menns of decisively proving ono team's superiority
over the other.
Following Northeast's claim to the city's championship on the soccer field,
Glrard College challenged the Red and Black for the laurels. Northeast comes back
with a "George School beat you and we tied George School, so that proves we are
the champs" statement.
Northeast's tie game against Georgo School doesn't signify the Bed and Black
superiority over Glrard because the latter went down to defeat before the same
eleven. The championship cannot bo decided unless both teams clnsh. Get together,
Clarence Rowland, the new manager of "Jimmy" Callahan's Chicago American
League team, has evidently taken hold of the reins with n firm grip. One of the
first things ha has done Is to unconditionally release William ("Kid") Gleason,
formerly of the Phillies. The owners must have the necessary confidence In Row
land's ability or ho would not be granted the unusual privilege of casting adrift
one of tho most practical advisers in the game today. For three years Gleason
lias been the right-hand man of "Jimmy" Callahan, and it Is rather surprising
t9 see the tried and true worker released. Gleason stuck to tho Chicago White
Box last year when he had an admirable chance of earning more money with the
Federal League. It doesn't seem quite fair to cast him off now, though conditions
might warrant It. That we cannot say. What we ore sure of Is that the White
Box management will have to search long and diligently to find another man of
i Gleason'a ability.
i New lork U not the only city on tho map which has among Its sport writers
minds of an Inventive turn. Chicago is rapidly overhauling the metropolitan clan in
JU effort to build something out of nothing and then repeating the dose at frequent
Intervals. One Chicago writer Informed tho publlo recently that the reason "Bddlo"
Collins did not Jump to the Federal League last summer was because of a telephone
message which never reached Its destination. Having- allowed that story to die a
..natural death another reason Is sprung. It Is now claimed that "Eddlo" offered to
Jump then and there If ho were given J20.000 In cash nnd a contract calling for
$O,Q00 for three years. As a matter of fact there la truth In both of the stories,
Collins was made a handsome offer by tho Federals in Chicago last summer. He
told the Federal League agent at the time that he would think it over, which meant
that he would suggest to Connie Mack a new contract He did this. Mack accepted
Eddie's terms. Hence and for no other reason the Federals did not land the most
Valuable player In the world.

Something Definite to An

of the New York Yankees.
NEW YORK, Dec. SO -Tho only now
nhgle developed In the negotiations of
Colonel Ruppert and Captain Huston for
tho local American Leaguo franchise Is n
conference nt the Hotel Belmont yestbr
day was that represented by the angular
John Bruce, secretary of tho National
Commission. John E. arrived early In the
morning and was In close touch with Ban
before and after tho conference. A sig
nificant fact of his unexpected appearance
Is that John E. Bruce has for many jcars
served as Cnptaln T. L. Huston's Cincin
nati attorney.
Ban Johnson was so ashamed of him
self for making all thoso blaso statements
that tho negotiations would end ono way
or tho other before last sundown that ho
resorted to the subterranean passago of
tho Belmont to cscapo the hounds of thoj
press. Mr. Bruce acted ns the big fcl
low's Interpreter, for John E. Is an or
ganized pillar as well ns a National Com
mission ofrtclal.
"There was absolutely nothing to bo an
nounced last night," sold John E.. "Mr.
Johnson begs tho Indulgence of you gen
tlemen for a short time more. Wo hopo
to have something dcdnlta today. All
of which may carry a grain of com
fort If ono Is liberal to regard today
as a day which never nrrlves.
Bruco absolutely refused to bo pinned
down to any positive assertion. He did
admit, howover, that In his opinion Mes
srs. Ruppert nnd Huston wero a great
deal nearer to an actual payment of cash
for the club stock than at any tlmo slnco
they first opened negotiations.
Secretary Thomas G. Davis, of tho New

with tho negotiators jestcrday afternoon,
set down as tommyrot the rumors which

of his club's players.

that Manager Hersog. of tho Reds, had stop
ped off at Philadelphia on his way homo, but
if. ?".fero.Ln th0 cltv J'xterday he fallod to
visit the offices of the Philadelphia Nntlonnl
League Club. It la presumed that Hersog's
visit to this city relates to making some kind
of a deal for Dooln, as the Reds are sadly In
need of a first-class catcher and sought to
secure the ex-manager soon after the closo of
tlie championship season. It Is possible that
Dooln nnd Iferzog had a conference last night,

Among tho many rumors set afloat regard

club for tho purpose of using Is as a "farm"
for the many young players on tho pay roll
of the Giants. MeGraw was after tho Indians
at the tlmo the club was bought by Joe Mc
