BOXING ALL THE LATEST DOPE BASEBALL"
Tinker Has Made Good As Boss of
Russell Strikes Usual Luck Cut
Even With Braves.
The report from Cincinnati that
Joe Tinker is dissatisfied and has
tendered Garry Hermann his resig
nation as manager of the Reds may
or may not be true, but it is a cinch
that J. Fayersham will not be fired.
He has more than made good, and
with a bunch of inferior material.
Tinker is said to object to the way
Hermann has ordered men disposed
of. Hermann is reported to have de
clared he entirely appro. ed of the
showing1 Tinker has made and would
not let him go under any conditions.
The entire yarn sounds like a wild
When Tinker went to Cincinnati it
was believed he had a team that
would' finish in the race. But his
pitching staff proved to be such in
name only," the outfield fell down in
batting, and the infielders were not
reliable. Joe made some trades and
purchases, uncovered a couple of ef
fective pitchers and has at last, se
cured a regular ball team. He has in
stilled fight into the Reds, something
they lacked in the past. Even with
a team that was getting licked regu
larly, Tinker has proved a drawing
card throughout the season. Fans
realized-when the Reds came to town
that they might be licked, but not
until after a game struggfe. With the
i men he has now, and what he will se
' cure by purchase and draft at the
p season's close, Tinker should be well
fortified next year and has a swell
chance to finish in the first division.
A. little bet at evens that he will
be directing Herrmann's hired hands
Now that a Chinaman has licked
an Irishman in a prizefight, we expect
to hear that John McGraw has signed
a few yellow men for his more or
less ball team.

If Reb Russell ever expects to have
anything handed to him but a swift
kick in the pants he had better join
the staff of the city spoke inspector.
According to the clvU service com
mission, whiqh secured waivers on
eight of these gents a coupje of days
ago, they were given little things like
hams, shoes,' cigars' and railroad,
passes by different corporations.
If Reb was . ever given anything
useful he would probably collapse
There have been few better pitch
ed games in the American League
this year than the Texas southpaw
turned loose against t)je Yanks to
celebrate the return of the White Sopt
to the South Side. Reb's portion was
defeat, administered because his
mates were powerless witli' the bat
before Russell Ford. Six iits were
allotted to the Yanks, and six of them
bit on the Rebel's hook and fast one.
A couple of the bingles came bundl
ed in one inning, however, along with
