, Taking advantage of yester
day's idle period in the baseball
war, Frank Chance, in linewith
his policy ' of improving each
snining hour, and, incidentally,
his ball team, went 'out7 and laid
'"violent hands on one James F.
Maroney, afree agent, pitcher
and attached him ,to the Cub pay
roll. Much joy on the part of Mr.
Maroney. - ,
Said Maroney is an off-fin fling
er who went on the spring jaunt
with Hughey Jennings' Tigers.
His work was pretty, good; but
when the'Detroit helmsinan ac
quired Bill Burns he had one
southpaw too many, and ar
oney wai given his release and a
railroad .ticket, wh'".ch doesn't get
you anything at the pie counter.
If Maroney makes good on, the
West Side he needn't worrvaboufr4

Brawns waUoJred Detroit, and
St Louis again toot the count
from Cincinnati.
If Hank O'Day' keeps his men
traveling at the pace they have
already set, he is going t6 be more
disliked as a manager by the oth
er seven teams in the National
than he was" as an umpire, which
is some dislike. The Reds are
off in front to a 'good lead, and aje
I increasing it every day. "New
York, the nearest rival, makes, a
long road trip while the. Rhine-,
men are at home; and with anjj
kind of pjaying at all the western-
Lers should forge, farther ahead.
O Day has a team of , sluggers,
and Larry McLean is on the wa
ter wagon. -Heretofore, the great
trouble in Cincinnati; has been
failure to stand up, under fire-by
the-pitchmg 'staff. If. Hank can
and will;.go to any lengths to get
one He already has 'Jack Jrfeis
fer, but Jack is a sort-pf grab bag,
- and no.onejcan tell jus what's in

Chanceds plaving a-bunch in
"signing, una man that Jennings pthough.tr they were going to have
has turned loose." Jt wilf be re-
membered that Hughey decided
., that Jimmy Archer didn't have
the class to stick, 'and sent him
badk for the mmo?s. And Archer
is" now the star of thetWest Side
