Itut thce vvrltliii.i prove bc.voinl iiie tlon of. doubt that Qrovcr the Clem should cnnltnc nil of his ifftuti to baie ball. This Is not a slam at his llteiarj work. N'o one cm xpeal Inn ulily of Alex the writer, because, so far as we Know, lie tiivcr has wiltten uuj thing but his name on a baseball contract mid u few lettes to person il fi lends The actions of Ale the pitcher do not Jibe with thou tjf Ah the -author. On Tuesday he giooved a beautiful thought In the opening pir.i graph of his special story which wo quote In full: "The si mutton of tho week was the profound discovery bj the magnates that the fien7lcd llnamc xhibitcd In bus In B plnscis was bad for the game and swelled the heads 01 the ptajcis that they demanded some of the nionej for themselves" Yesterday a story came out ot Chicago stating that the big plti bei was a. holdout Htid would not sign 11 contract with the Chicago Cubs until be received n bonus of $10,000. Again we result to quotes: "It might lis well be definitely understood," said Alesandei. "that I will not pla with the Chicago team next summer unless I receive 11 J10.000 bonus and 11 ..ilai.v of (12,000 n jear, I have not heen President Wceghman since ur eoiifelinn In Omaha nnd I do not Intend to go to sec him. lie knows 1111 turns" AIN'T IT A GRAND AND GLORIOUS FEELIN'? ves himself none the best of It In the two quoted itiptt. he savii that tho latge sums of nione whlth ihnngtd TT A MIX glv c .First he hands In baseball deals have swelled the heads of the plavcis mi that they demanded some of the monev for themselves. Then he goes out and makes an exoibitant dun md for a bonus from his new boss. Wonder If Alex meant to call himself a "swilled litad'".' Alex Says He Does Not Write the Special Stories IS said that Alex now claims tint he nevel has written any of the stories which arc appearing under his name This sounds loglial, foi we remember last fall when he was supposed to have given some Inside dope on the winning of the world series, although he was a couple ot thousand miles away when the games were plavcd. Ills ee-vltni"t aiouuts were quite thrilling, nnd It Is safe to say that even Alesnnilei himself was Inleiesteil when he looked them over. Jimmy Isamlnger has been tonespondlng with the expensive huiler 11 winter nnd recently tccelved .1 letter which espljlnul his nltl'.iln. Mi Isamlnger published the following In last Kunda.v'H Noith Ameileau: "Alex ander also expressed astonishment that newspapers eari.v 11 baseball iirth le nearly every day with his slgnatuie ovci It 'These at titles niiwnut wiltten by me,' he wrote; 'neither have I given any Infotinatlim to the man who puts the stuff In print It Is all done without tn authoiltv ami against my xpress wish "'I want over, body In Philadelphia to know that the ut titles do not represent my views and that I haven't the slightest tiling to do with It.'" That lets Alex out to a certain extent and It also shows the folly ot publishing signed stories from heroes ot the diamond. It is seldom that the heroes ever write a line of the copy ami we Know whet of we speak, for mite upon a time we wrote some of the Alexandei stoiles in a world tilts which was attended by Orover the Cheat. B , t f to I t. 0N NB more point In favor of at least the Intellectual prowess and cunning of the modem ball plajer Is the fact that In tho olden days the plaers were so low-biowed and vulgar they hadn't even heard of a bonus, A If so. they were Ignorant of the meaning of the well known Latin derivative.

There are a few men like l.ddle Collins, lowevei, who have tho ability to write their own stuff, but tliej ate few and v far between. It might be a good stunt foi the National League to adopt the same lultng. , Mamaux Has Dreyfuss Between Two Fires ONIJ of the sweetest little nilups lu b ieball In nianv nniuiis sinus iet tafn as a tesult of the attempt to trade the tautankeious Jit Mamaux. to tho Drooklvii club by Magnate Ilarnev Dievfuss, I'll ate plillantlnoplt and fcpendthrlft. Viewing the situation generall., the Smukctown mogul appears to have forced himself Into the attitude of losing no matter which way the cat 'jumps, thus guaranteeing the pitcher at least one good Inning at last, for If the facts are as reported, Mamaux either Is ret tain to succeed In his contention that he has a good contiatt for J.'iOOO which must be pro tected this ear or else he will become a flee agent, can sign wheio he pleases and the whole Rrooklyn deal will explode with a loud noise Dreyfuss takes the stand that his suspension of Muniaux last season when tho player was "batting" onlv and not pitching: nullified his contiatt, which ran another eat At the same time he assumes that he can tiatle the player. Should his attitude as to the abmgatlou ot the contract bo sus tained Dreyfuss would lose anvhnvv. foi leitalnlv Mamaux then would be u free agent, and if Mamaux's appeal Is sustained he Is leitaln to get JTiOUO this year no matter where he plajs. . WITH Mamaux a free agent It Is altogetliei HKel that ngardless of the fact that the temperamental fitnger led organized baseball backward last season ho could get a congenial berth. Ho might bo able, in fact, to secure a contract calling for no fines. An oversight relating to this point Is said to have cost him J3200 last season. . Ball Players More Intelligent Nowadays THE debate as to the relative baseball plavlug ability of tin oMtluieis and the present generation still Is open and will so continue, no doubt, ' Just like a religious argument which never has coin luted anvbudv. In one respect, however, the ancient stars of the pastime ate compelled to admit t a hopeless Inferiority, and that Is In Intellect, Viewed from tills angle the modern diamond athlete Is entitled to a better general rating, for at least he Is able to force the conviction that he Is worth a lot moio money. , Two of the best salary arns of tho season come from St. Louis, where It seems that two fotmer l'edernl League pla,ei have been attempting to hold up the lowly Browns with their defunct organization's scraps of piper aa a leverage. And when the ptesent plaing values of the two plajers Is considered the Joke Improves In merit. Lee Magee and Leslie Nunamakcr are the parties of the first pait and the former Is said ahendy to have caved In and signed for more than $."i000 less than originally demanded. Nunamaker's highly liberal cpntract has another season to run and the Idea Is that he must have a renewal of same befoie signing up. Harking back a few- jears with a conciete example In mind suggests some interesting reflections upon sulaiy conditions. In 1904 Chkk Stahl received $4000 from the Red Sox, while Speaker got Jlfi.OOO In 1914. Jimmle Collins as manager of a world's championship team that jear took down $8000 against $15,000 for Canigun. Cy Young received for his 1904 salary $4500, while Joe Wood took down $7500 In 1314, The entire pajroll of the Red Sox during 1904 was $53,000, as opposed to $92,700 ten jears later,. utile Hall, si vi la Hie Itagiie lit gan Mgnlng funnel i:.islnn Lingue plajers m tathn otTi ling them IH'sltltius in thtli linns, whit h vine nu allv at rented Two-Team Li-dRiii As a lesiilt nf this uiuvi tin i bibs, width relalntil theli oiiglnal Urn -lips began to lose with legulailt.v and the linlistni ami Hutteiw mth quintets took the bad with a wide niaiglu "I he siliedtile was dlvitbd Into two puts the thst ending In a tie l.etwein ISiiltti woith and inbun 'I Inn twinlubs so far until issed the ntheis tliat unlv when i,... .in,, siheihiltil to ila would a tiovvd siilllilnil to pav the i mining ix it lists of Hit liague pass thlnllgll tin liitnstilts .SevHiiil wttks ago It was u eh ilt it b manv ns tnilv a question of time befon the If.igin would tiavel the same path as tli.it nf the I 'astern la ague, whlth hit tin I oiks a ftu mouths ago It Is I legiettttl that the Woikingniens I.tague has been forted to cancel lis ihedule, but the tiuitests were ton one-lilnl to jtaue moie than casual Inttrest Saints' IMalilisli Itccurd j Wist Philadelphia Halter Issues .Slntentent I Inven't heard finin Ahxatnler since Ins arrival, unit I tlim'i thin.

At the end of every trip all seats and cushions are unlim-) bered, and every cranny is vacuum cjeaned. Mattresses, blankets and pillows are hung in, the open air and sunlight. Water coolers are sterilized with steam; the washrooms are cleansed with disinfectant. At frequent intervals carpets are removed and renovated and the monolithic floor thor- Safeguarding the Publics Health oughly scrubbed; the walls and ceilings are washed with soap and water. The polished steel interior of a Pullman is easily kept clean, and cannot shelter germs. Thorough fumigation is given every car regularly. The laundering of bed linen and blankets is done according to the most exacting standards; the smallest permanent stain or scorching causes them to be discarded. Mattresses, pillows and all upholstery are frequent ly .emptied and renovated. " There is probably no public place where health and clean liness are more vigilantly guard ed than in the Pullman car. j .i.. .-it-. i bu ik .n,l ili.t ,.,t, I a Player ana as a man, ue na,DCn nuer man iuo uum iiiiiu man irom I ,t , -. .
