lor Questioned by Kings Co.
District Attorney.
j Ebbets Declares Faith in His
Men?Stoneham Shocked
Over Scandal.
Tlireo members of the Brooklyn
; Baseball Club were questioned yester- i
j day by District Attorney Harry E.
I.tAVis of Kings county, who is investigating
reports that the gamblers
i who fixed the 1919 world's series j
planned also to bribe the Brooklyn
players to throw the coming contest.
The men who talked with Mr. Lewis
were Zachary Wheat, cartain of the
team; "Al" Mamaux, pitcher, and
James W. Taylor, a recruit. Although
Mr. Lewis said he would make no
statement concerning the progress of
his Investigation, it is understood ho
received no information from the three
players tending to confirm the reports
that efforts might be made to get
Dodgers to sell out for a few thousand
dollars. So far it seems there is
absolutely no evidence against the
Brooklyn team or against gamblers.
' None of the boys knows anything
about this thing," Al Mamaux said after
a* ten minute session with Mr. Lewis.
"It's absurd. No gamblers or other persons
have attempted anything with us
and It would be a mighty unhealthy
thing for anybody to try. ,
Mamaux's Interview with Mr. Lewis
came a few minutes after "Zaeh" Wheat
and young Taylor had been questioned.
As is his custom. Mr. Lewis had a stenographer
present. No significance is
attached to this, however, and it is believed
all three made direct denials that
they knew nothing about an attempt to
reach Brooklyn players.
The main body of Brooklyn players
will appear this morning before the District
Attorney. Charles H. Ebbets,
president of the Brooklyn club, told the
players to be present to-day in accordance
with his promise of cooperation
with the District Attorney.
"I will bank my reputation on the
honesty of the men of our team." Mr.
Ebbets said. "A man who becomes
president of a ball club and holds that
position for a number of years becomes
a good Judge of human nature. The
boys of the Brooklyn team are as clean
cut and as honest as can be found anywhere
in the world of athletics."
Wilbert Robinson, manager of the
Brooklyn club, and Ernest Krueger, a
catcher, called at the District Attorney's
office yesteiday morning, but Mr. Lewis
was in court. They did not wait, but left
word they would return to-day.
There is seme discussion in baseball
| circles whether the questioning of the
Robins by the District Attorney would
| make them nervous and adversely affect
their play in the big series. The general
opinion seemed to ne, however, that the
' questioning, anrougn it migni irritate
the players, would cause them to work
even harder In the series to< win and
thus prove beyond all question that they
have not beer, tampered with.
Charles A. Stoneham, president of the
New York National baseball club, who
r reached New York from Havana on the
Ward liner Mcrro Castle, expressed his
astonishment concerning the White Sox
' scandal.
"1'ersonally I believe these reports of
the Brooklyn club ridiculous, as I know
Robinson Is absolutely on the level." he
taid. "I do not think he would condone
I any crooked playing for a minute, and
furthermrre. from what I know of his
i men, I don't believe any of them are
. crooked. The person who spread this
report should be made to prove It at once
or apologize. A report of this kind, with
the world's series so close at hand, will
do irrreparable damage if not chali
I Concerning the Chicago stluatlon Mr.
Stoneham said: "It certainly is a shock,

Mr. Comlskey Is to be commended on the

Former Ginnt Third Baseman
Answers Accusation He ^
Played Crooked Game.
"If John McGraw said that I was east a
off the Giants because I threw games c
and tried to bribe Fred Toney and Benny tl
Kauff to help me. he's a liar." With a
this emphatic statement, from which jvlrulent
ndjectlves preceding the word
"liar" have been deleted. Heinle ZImmer- ^
man. once proud third baseman of the
Giants, hut now Just a humble citizen 0
of The Bronx, yesterday launched into
an attack on his former manager. Zim?merman
was sought out at his home at ?
490 East 167th street to give his side a
of the baseball scandal in so far as it
concerns the retirement of both himself
and Hal Chase at the close of last, sea- P
| son. f
"I am mighty glad that this bombshell ft
j has burst at last," said Zimmerman, as
lie stopped from his work of pottering
about his little brick house. "A lot of n
things have been said nbcut me, and the r
New York club, through Its silence, has t
given the fans the Impression that aeeusat
ions made against me are true. First
McGraw gave It out that "ho had dropped t
nio for breaking training and insub- ,
ordination. Now he says that he has ^
evidence that I threw games and tried to ^
get others to help me That's a lie. (
"Benny KaufC is the player who ^
merits these accusations, for It was he j
who brought the fixed game to the
Giants. 1 never tempted him and never f
did anything but give my best to the (
Giants. It is true that I was close to
Hal Chase and that we spent a lot of '
time together, tut Mrs. Chase and Mrs.
Zimmerman were very chummy and
nnturally Chase and I got to being together
a lot.
"The trouble Is that men higher up ,
In the game are trying to cover them- ?
selves up by casting suspicion un i>?a>ers.
Now that the Grand Jury in Chicago
is on the Job we will see tlie real
culnrlts broi glit to light. McGraw
should bo the last man in the game to
accuse anybody. I never made a deliberate
misplay in my life, nor did I ever
do anything but my best when at bat.
"I was not with the Giants this season
because I refused to sign for the
salary which McGraw offered me. We *
got into a quarrel last season because I J
refuse"d to stand for the vile language |
which McGraw used In addressing me?
and other players, for that matter.
When McGraw saw that he could not
run me as he ran the others he decided
that 1 would get the Hersog treatment
and be let loose by the Giants.
"I predict that some interesting things
will come out soon and that they will
not Implicate Heinie Zimmerman."
