FEAR CUT IN TARIFF
SPENCER GOES BACK
TO ROCHESTER CLUB
IMcBride's Injured Leg Is Slow
to Round Into
' By "SENATOR."
Johnny Kllng, once known as the
I greatest catcher alive, when Identified
with the champion Chicago Cubs, and
now the, peppery manager of the Bos
' ton Nationals, who broke even with
Clark'Qrlfflth youngsters here last
week, will make an attempt to catch a
ball thrown from the window In the
, Washington Mounment as soon as he
. has received the necessary sanction
I from Col. Spencer S. Cosby, of the pub
lic buildings and grounds department of
the District. He has already received
a letter, fjrom the. District Commtsslon
, ers and hopes to make his attempt at
this difficult feat as soon as he gets
( It was Ktlng's Intention to make his
attempt -yesterday morning, but delay
in the negotiations resulted in the post
, ponement and he accompanted'hls team
I to Baltimore, where they played Jack
; Dunn's Orioles yesterday, incidentally
.shutting them out B to 0.
If KJIng succeeds In catching a ball
tossed from the Monument, he -will bo
I the third to do so. "Gabby" 8treet,
the veteran backstop of the Nationals,
now a.- member of the New York High
landers, was the first player to electrify
the country by catching a ball dropped
from the window In the Btono tower.
He accomplished this In the Bummer of
1908. Ho then became known as the
"Monument Baby" all over the Amerl
I can League circuit.
Caught Three Balls.
In August Billy Sullivan, the White
Sox stellar backstop, caught three balls
thrown from tho window close to the
top of the Monument. Since then no
player has tried to do this stunt, though
Norman Elberfcld, tho little inflelder
with the Nationals last year, intended
trying it with a .small fielder's glove,
thus establishing a new record.
Tho .window from which tho ball Is
thrown Is M2 feet from the ground,
and the ball when caught In the catch
er's mitt is traveling at the rate of 161
feet a second. If the would-be catcher
were to be hit by the ball, his injury
might be fatal, and none but an expert
can receive sanction to try tne experi
, ment. However. Kling is one of the
most experienced catchers in baseball,
and should have little trouble in getting
the necessary permission.
Chester Spencer, the first baseman
from Rochester, has lost out In his
struggle with Jack Flynn for n per
manent position at first base with the
Nationals and has been sent back to
John Ganzel's club for anntber sea
son's polishing. This action Is a favon
1 to Ganzel. who, losing Dolly Gray be
lieved himself pretty much of a loser
on the deal which brought Dan Moeller
and Eddie Foster to the Capital.
Shy With Willow.
Spencer Is a beautiful fielding first
baseman, but Is still a bit shy with the
willow, Jack Flynn's strong point. If
6pencer had been as hard a hitter as
Flynn, he might have won the place,
hut the necessity of Saving a powerful
swatter In the line-up swayed Manager
Griffith toward Flynn.
Allan Schecr. the little second base
1 man, has departed for YoungBtown,
, Ohio, where ho will have little trouble
' In holding his Job this season. Scheer
Is a powerful hitter, but has plenty of
time ahead of Mm to learn the fine
points of the game. On his showing
with the Nationals It would not be sur
prising to find him bobbing up for an
other trial with some major league team
George McBrlde has a drain applied to
his wounded leg. and Is In hopes of
ielng able to face the Brooklyn Su
pefbas tomorrow. The veieran short
stop Is seldom out of tne game through
accident, and Is anxious to don his unl
, form and get tho needed practice beforo
the opening of the season.
Close This Week.
Tho spring exhibition series of the
Nationals comes to a close this week
wjth 'contests with Brooklyn tomorrow
and Tuesday. Wednesday will be a day
of rest for the athletes, and they will
leave at 7 o'clock In the evening for

AWAKENS THE FANS
Sleepers Rub Their Eyes When "Mild Bill" Drives Out
Homer to Left Nationals Win, 14 to 2,
From Cornell Varsity Team.
"Mild BUI" Cunningham greatly
amused a couple of hundred baseball
bugs yesterday at the Florida avenuo
park by smiting the pellet on the pro
boscis, sending it rolling over and over
and over again until it settled In the
corner pocket In deep left. The mighty
drive was good for the entire circuit and
Bill made a grandstand finish by somer
saulting over Abbott, the Cornell back
stop, who had deftly blocked his path
toward the pan. And then the fans
went to sleep again, for the Nationals
won by a Bcore of 14 to 2, and there was
little need to keep awake.
The calm, deliberate, deadly, persistent
pitching of Paul Musser, the "Canton
controller," took all semblance of llfo
from tho exhibition, particularly becauso
the collegians wore miserably frail with
the wand. Only Keller, the huge third
baseman, could hit tho ball and It la to
be supposed that he did It to cover up
his many weaknesses In the field and
on the bases. Musser was out to make
a vivid impression on Acting Manager
George McBrlde, nursing an Infected leg
on the bench, and little cared he about
th6 absence of Interest in the pastime.
The game was as lively as moving pic
tures showing a Hindoo thinking of tho
Jerry Akers, the "Dubuque demon,"
eased through the final four sessions in
masterly style, though there was little
for him to do, except to watch his
youthful support hurl the ball around
and spoil the hope of a whitewash.
Cornell tallied twice and left the arena
Just a Parade.
The game? Oh, there wasn't any
game, Just a parade. Hlghtower, on tho
hill for Cornell, was wild and weak and
poorly supported, everybody behind him
thinking it a mark of honor to drop the
ball or throw it off tho earth. In the
opening Inning Bill Cunningham's loco-
motive shoot to left field scored Milan
and Schaefer went all the way around
when Butler let the leather filter
through him. The Dutchman scored on
Cunningham's sacrifice fly to O'Connell
In the third.
' In the' fifth Hlghtower blew up and
four passes, mixed with some bad mis
plays and1 a couple of blows, resulted In
three runs. and the fans yawned vis
ibly, the whole score of them, not
counting the press gentlemen. Flynn
was on when Cunningham's homer sent
him in. Morgan lived on an error and
was forced when Akers drew a pass.
Painful episode, that inning.
The sixth was Its counterpart, three
more runs coming over on an error,
Jack Flynn's Bingle to right, Cunning
ham's double to left followed by his
sprinting home from second when Mor
gan perished at first. That mad dash
of Cunningham's woke up four fans la
the right field pavilion, who rubbed their
eyea and went back to Bleep again.
Then a Nightmare.
The eighth was a nightmare, flyo
more runs coming over. Moeller hit o
Keller and went to second on the lat
ter's heave to the fence. A passed ba,ll
gave him another and he scored
when Keller booted Flynn's slap. Cun
ningham skied, but Morgan singled to
center, driving in Flynn and scoring
himself when O'Connell let the ball rqu
almost to the bleachers. Foster singled
to center and Gordon dropped Henry's
fly. each runrier taking two sacks. Akers
surprised Acting Manager McBrlde by
singling 10 center, ucoririB rosier anu
MUplays gave Cornell two runs. With
one down In the eighth Keller walked.
Morgan seized Abbott's grounder and
Sot Keller at second, but threw to the
ugout for the batter, who got two
corr.tr. Akers then hurled Jsett's
splash wildly In the general direction of
Flynn and Abbott was over.
Gordon scratched a single to Foster In
the ninth, advancing on Bills' out.
Akers hit Clute, who was forced by
O'Connell. a balk, the third to be seen
on the local diamond In aB many days,
sent Gordon in unrestrained.
Score In Detail.

By HARRY WARD.
Aroused by the Underwood bill,
which threatens to reduce tho tariff on
automobiles from 45 per cent to SO or
83 per cent, thirteen of the largest
motor car manufacturers In the cou:
try have banded together and filed
protest against the measure with tha
Senate Finance Committer. They point
out that a reduction In tariff might
mean at least an S per cent reduction
In the wages of the thousands and
thousands of wage-earners at present
employed In the American plants.
They say this would be the logical
loophole, because tho cost of produc
tion in many cases cannot be reduced
in any other way.
The brief bristles with facts of in
terest, chief of which is tho evldenco
offered as to the need of a protectlvo
tariff to provent n reduction of wages
In order to meet foreign competition,
tho claim being made that "were it
not for the protectlvo tariff policy of
this country at the time the motor car
Industry came on the horizon, almost
countless mllllonr. of dollars wpuld havi
gone abroad for motor vehicles by
reason of the earlier start of the In
dustry in Europe, nnd American arti-
i-ans wouiu nave gone without many
millions of wages which the tariff has
enabled them to earn."
The brief points out that the wages
paid abroad ro from one-third to one
half the rates prevalent In American
factories, which difference in compen
sation Is maintained by the tariff, and
tells of the nfrorts made by European
makers to get Into the American mar
kets. European makers. It is also
pointed out, in addition to fmvlnir tha
j benefit of cheap labor, also have the
advantage oi ueing nblo to use Amer
ican machinery, which in itself means
The thirteen manufacturers filing the
protest have a total tnpital of Jw.007,
651, employ 33,095 wage-earners, whose
pay for twelve months aggregates
:6.973,797. The amount of material pur
chased by them In twelve months is
said to be $T,0CS.7I7.
