Coombs, p. Umpire Connolly and McGreevy. Johnny McQraw, manager of the New 'York Giants, champions of the National League, after gazing at the smooth working Walter Smokeball Johnson for fire Innings the other day. has gone into raptures over his ability. "Walter Johnson is one of the best pitchers I have ever seen," says Mc Graw. "I have not had a look at Ed Walsh since he donned big league spangles. Johnson was a' little short of 'wonderful for the spring. He stacked up against the Giants, a club which had thundered through the South, smearing the pitching we had encountered on our trip all over the parks, a club highly rated for its batting strength, and he held the Giants to two hits in five in nings. It is like looking at a wonder ful picture or admiring some other work of art to watch him work, that Is, if he Is not working against you." Coming from McGraw. admittedly a good judge of ball players and one who has gone down the line for years with the marvelous Christy Mathewson on his club, this praise Is all the more startling. American leaguers have for several years touted the "Kansas Whirlwind." but It is probable that Johnny McGraw's estimation of the great twirler will go even farther. Field In Good Shape. Whenever the deluge quits, the Climbers park Is due for a rapid re covery. Manager Griffith and a corps of hustlers visited the prairie yester 6ay and soaked up all the lakes and rivers In the gardens. The infield has reposed quietly beneath its blanket of canvas ever since the first game last Thursday, and needs naught but a weak bit of wind and sun to be dry as a bone. "Thanks to the drainage we have Installed at the park." says the man ager today, "we have one of tho quickest-drying ball parks In the country. I would like to have the public of Washington understand this, becauss there may come many days this sea son when showers will fall on the city ln the morning and then the skies clear In the afternoon. They must not think that the afternoon game will be post poned because of that shower. "I shall never call off a game as long as I am here until I see lor my self that it Is useless to start one. I don't take other people's opinions about this, either. I go to the park myself. "Until the last minute I shall always refrain from announcing a postpone ment. I shall never postpone a game at 11 o'clock in the morning. This 13 done in some cities, but I shall not do it here. I believe in giving the fans a run for their money." What Phair Says. At the rami; time, while on tho sub ject of rain and its attendant difficulties. It might be well here to Insert a little rhapsody on" rain by George E. Phair, the Chicago artist, in words. He goes like this: "Rain was invented by a guy who had a grudge against baseball mag nates. It made Noah famous; likewise it made him swear. "Rain makes the grass grow and the flowers bloom, but it puts a Jody on the gate receipts and hits the baseball magnate a swift and severe kick. "The only redeeming feature about rain Is that it contributes to the propagation of double-headers. A double-header means two exhibitions of our national pastime for the price of one admission, all of which makes a magnate as happy as if he were sitting on a cactus. "There is an unconfirmed rumor that rain is the chief reason for the Na tional Commission's .undying hatred for water. HaMng held a conference on the weather conditions, our magnates will now arise and sing their national anthem, which patters sb follows: "The raindrops fall on hill and dell: Oh. whatthehel! Oh, whatthelhel!" Takes Out Insurance. Ah. yes, still one more paragraph sug gested by the rainfall of the laBt week or so. The committee In charge of the "Frank Chance Day" In Chlcazo doesn't intend to drop any money on their proj ect, provided the skies open up and weep. It has taken out an insurance policy for $5,(00 for protection against rain. The policy, unique in baseV" history, is made out to the treasurer of the celebration, covering his possible loss for automobiles, fireworks, flowers, music, buttons, and other specialties. Who knows, perhaps the big leagues will yet insure themselves against rain for a whole season. The world certainly do move! Ty Cobb is yet unsigned. Ty is rest ing quietly at his home in Georgia, and the Western clubs in this league are hoping he will stav there until they have had a chance to wallop the Tigers in his absence. But Ty will verv likely sign up pretty soon. First of all, he Is a great ball player. He is well fixed In a financial way, but he will not be able to stand for lone the dallv reading of the big league battles and not see his name in bold head lines At the same time. Frank Navln is not Tomorrow's Sports. Northwestern League opens its season with Portland at Spokane. Victoria at Seattle, and Vancouver at Tacoma.

"Big Ed" Walsh came out for a large increase in his envelope. The White Sox had copped the pennant In 1906. and had been in the thick of the fight the following two seasons. Walsh had done yeoman work all these years and so became a holdout in 1909. Appeals to Fans. Comlskey felt that, despite the three fat years before, he was unable to grant Walsh's demands. He explained this to the twirler, but the latter re mained at home. The White Sox lost steadily for wan ot Walsh In the box. Then Charlie Comlskey made a ten strike. He appealed to the fans. Per haps he took a chance in doing this, but he was surprised to find that the fans were with him. They wanted the White Sox to win ball games, but they were not with a well-paid player whose absence was causing defeats. There are two sides to all this salary matter, anyway, you know. Undoubt edly the fans like to see a player get all he can. But. on the other hand when the magnate boosts prices for admission to the great coliseums of tha modern day, they feel the bite and howl with pain. Yet, the players could never get their present salaries at th old rates of admission. This Is being shown in Philadelphia. This year the prices have been jumped there. The fans don't like It. despite their two world's championship In the last three years. Tommy Rice, the gifted critic of the Brooklyn Eagle, hits a new angle when he says: "Blame higher prices on the fans themselves. They always take the part of the holdout. -lub owners often grant a raise fearing that the fans might rise in arms. Anyway, the fan doesn't care whether the club owners cut up 1100,000 at the end of a season or 1? cents. "Their pet is the player, the boy that j they see wallop the ball with the basest ruu or blank a team of hard hitters. Is Selfish Proposition. "They want to see him get all the money he can, and they think he Is worth every cent he wants, because they don't have to pay the salary. In I their hero worship they forget about expenses, interest charges, etc Why, only the other day several thousand Chicago fans petitioned C. W. Murphy to meet Jimmy Archer's salary de mands. "Now that the owners have been clubbed by the fans into jumping sal aries "every -season, the fans are asked to go down in their pockets and pay the increase in the salaries of the players they have been plugging." It costs money to run a modern big league ball team. The magnate fre quently has to mortgage his plant to start a season, particularly if his team has not been successful for a few years in a row. And it is positively funny sometimes 10 near a cienc earning xis a week rising in his wrath and demand ing that "Kid Blffer be given his J9.000 ior six months' worK." Ball players are entitled to all they can get, true. But most of them are getting a little cake with their large amount of bread. Quirk In Rules. A peculiar mix-up Is caused by the new rulea governing baseball, and Is shown by the Detroit club. Because of the agreement between the two tig leagues, the Tigers must keep an ordl-' nary player and let a better one go back to the bushes. Jennings has two young catchers, Gibson and McKee. McKee was drafted and Gibson was purchased. Jennings considers Gibson the better catcher. As a general thing. Gibson would be re tained and McKee sent back. How ever, if President Navln asks for waiv ers on McKee, all title to the pliyer may be lost, for any club can claim him. and the Tigers will not be allowed to withdraw its waivers. Four clubs have put in drafts for him already. There isn't much of a chance of his going. On the other hand, McKee needs more seasoning. If the Tigers want to get rid of him. they may lose him forever, and kick themselves when some other club develops him into a star. Base ball laws are strange things some times Tournament Begins. LOS ANGELES. Cal., April It A golf tournament to decide the women's championship of the Pacific coast was opened today at the Los Angeles Coun. try Club.

This is also the. refrain a number of eagle-eyed batsmen use after facing Mr. Johnson, of Washington, for a few rounds. And the number is more than two or three. As a suggestion to club owners, we can't understand why the season Isn't started on January 15 in place of April 10. Several have suggested Christmas eve, but we figure this date a trifle too early while the mid January date is more conservative. Of course the weather in January isn't much better than it Is in early April, but there is a slight advantage which might as well be seized. The weather this stirinx has been so bad that Mr. Ebbetta has onlv j been able (o work in three "official true patron of historical celebrations who believes the tradlyons and achievements of our ancestors should be remembered in a fitting way and observed with proper ceremony. Those who are doping out the A. L. situation shouldn't overlook this angle. The American League is stronger this season, as a whole, than it has ever been before. Only the Detroit Tigers have gone back, while every other club is strengthened. Even the Browns look to be a regular ball club, and will surprise more than one before the year is out Cleveland and Chicago are both stronger, and the Yanks will be 30 per cent better off with Frank Chance alone considered. We believe that Ban Johnson is right in backing up his umpires fully, provided he will lay severe penalties upon any umpires proven guilty of persecution, which is sometimes the case. If it can be shown that the of ficial should be suspended unjustly through an umpire's testimony, the umpire should be suspended Indefinitely without pay. But it must be re membered that the umpire, through the greater part of the time, is right, and the only wonder is that he doesn't go even further in protecting his position.

He never has; always confining his labors to making his boys play tne kind of ball he wishes. But Danny Murphy, captain of the Mackmen, was willing to chirp a bit. aa follows: "I like Griffs team.' He has collected a good bunch of kids, who are playing up-to-date ball all the time. If he had a couple of real sluggers In his line-up well. I'm glad he hasn't, for now we have a better cnance 10 win uie pen nant. "We have got off to a good start, much better than last year's.

""Those two games In Boston didn't look good on. the score boards, but the dreadful weather,was to.bisme ior tnau Both days we plnyed the field was heavy with mud. and the wind was positively killing to a pitcher kfresh from the South.

"We are pulling for warm weather now. The players fear getting stiff from cold weather and we're losing much valuable batting practice.

There Is Intense Interest among the fans of Washington In the, series due to open here today between the Grlffmen ar.d the Mackmen.

This season, though, he knows right now that -he must beat out both Boston and Wash ington If he would land the coveted banner. There are Just three clubs in the race, even at this early date. Two ot them will be here for three days, beginning today. The other one sporta the title of World's. Champions. Leave on Wednesday. On Wednesday at midnight the Clim bers wilt trek to New York. On tho following day they will play tho Yankees In the opening game of th3 American League season on the. Polo Grounds.
