There is no surer way of stopping boxing matches than permitting boys physl cully unable to step over the ropes to do battle It generally happens ln the cases of preliminary lads who fig ure that they are able to undergo lire physical strain without training. Generally they do go through without any mishap, but occasionally one of the boys oaves In and then the un pleasing call "Is there a doctor In the house" Is heard.

The managers of the two principals met and after a short talk they agreed up on William H Rocap as the third man In the ring. Rocap has had con siderable experience in handling all kinds of bouts and was the former featherweight amateur champion . of the United States. He thoroughly un derstands the rules and can be de pended upon to enforce them to the letter. Before the men go into the ring he will have a talk with them and go over the rules so that they will have n^ difficulty in their work while boxing,.

REED BIRD SEASON OPENS Slaughter of the Succulent Dainties Expected to be Large on First Day Reed bird season opened with a bang at dawn this morning in Penn syI vanin Delaware and some coun ties in Maryland. Enthusiastic gun ners by the hundreds were out to make a record-breaking bag for the first day of the sport. Gunners in this section of the coun try have been waiting with ill-con cealed Impatience for the 1st of Sep tember, and guns, gunning clothes, skiffs and other necessaries have been receiving their annual prepara tion for the occasion. The beauty of gunning for reed birds is that the sport is comparatively inexpensive, dogs not being indispensable, as In field shooting. Anyone possessing a I gun. a little time and the couple of dollars for carfare and shells can enjoy a god day's gunning, and this year promises to furnish better sport 31 than for five years past. ' that readies and rail birds are quite plentiful and that the wild oafs and reeds are In fine condition, thereby guaranteeing that the birds will be fat and prime. While there are many desirable marshes which belong to private in divlduala or are rented by clubs, there are enough marshes left to provide gunning for the general public. The nearest are along the Christiana Creek, although the troublft there is that there are so many shoters that It is hard to get much choice of shoot ing. It is stated In New Jersey there are good grounds, while down in Maryland there is an abundance of ground. It Is necessary, however, to have li censes to shoot these birds In New Jersey and Maryland, and prospec tive gunners should make sure of having the licenses in their pockets when they start, shooting, otherwise the game wardens may make trouble and perhaps spoil a day's shooting.

Dal.* NOW DRAFTING BALL PLAYERS Securing of Class A Stars is Quite a Complicated Mat ter-Others Easy FORTUNES COMING TO MINOR LEAGUES The drafting season for the major leagues starts to-day and will con tinue for two weeks, time quite a number of the stars of Class A clubs will be gathering into The meet During this the fold of the majors. ing of the National Commission will j be held at Cincinnati and is one of j the most important of the year. To secure Class A players the majors have to go through consider able red tape so that every club is satisfied different drafts are as follows: The rules govering the Minor league players are promoted I On or before August in two ways. 2« each year, the minor league clubs need not part with their best players unless they desire to do so and then only on terms satisfactory to them selves. The theory of baseball law Is that the minor league club is en tlttled to remuneration for the train ing of green players into candidates for the stronger oragnizations The second way of advancement, is through the draft. The right to draft players Is not only a valuable privilege for the majors, but It also protects the play ers themselves. Only one player may be drafted from each Class A minor league club, but an unlimited number may be drawn from all minor league clubs of lower classification. As a result of this provision there is prac tically no danger that players with ability to stick in the major league will be forced to remain In the minors. At times uniform writers rant about the "slavery of players," but students of baseball law Know that the sport would not be where It Is to-day—at the head of professional pastimes— If ft were not for the wise regula tions drawn for the purpose of pro tecting the public, the players and the owners. In baseball as In busi ness and politics, the trouble is not with the law but with the occasional violations. The lengthy list issued'by the com mission after Auguat 2« showed how thoroughly the sixteen major league clubs raked the country for playera of promise, hut on September 1 each club will add several more names to Its payroll. The draft Is the great est of lotteries, because It always turns out that many clubs try for the much-touted players. The drafting of Class A players Is quRe complicated. Suppose, for In stance, that the National Commission receives checks from four major league clubs for "Jones." of Colum bus, two for "Smith." of the same team, and two for "Brown." The first thing to decide is the drawn. which of the four clubs desiring him is entitled to his services The com peting clubs may be Pittsburg and Cincinnati Nationals. Cleveland and St, Louis Americans The names of these four clubs are written on slips of paper and placed In a hat. The club drawn out gets the man. Many high-grade players have been promoted through the draft Pitts burg's best luck was in drawing the right to negotiate with "Chief" Wil son for his services. Brooklyn was luck last September in getting Daubert. Philadelphia picked up Walsh, who although only a utility man this year, will stick In the league. St Louis picked up Houser. Other clubs of the two leagues picked up good players. There Is. however, so much uncertainty about the draft that major league clubs cannot afford to wait until September 1 to recruit their clubs. That is why the minor leagues are handed a fortune every Auguat. name Then the next question ts LABOR DAT. MONDAY, SEPT. 6. County League. Brookwood vs. duPont, Front and Union streets.

S. Game. Sporting Editor THE EVENING JOURNAL: I would like to have a few words to say in relation to the game at Bran dywine Springs last Thursday. I saw the game and read both letters and was sorry to see the different things that game brought out. I am no special rooter for either team, but will say the trick that was worked on the Parkslde rooters was not fit for any team to make. I hap pened to be standing on third base line when the hat was passed through the Parkslde faithfuls, when I over heard one man say. who is this for? The man with the hat said, "It's all right, it will be divided." Even the manager of Parkslde dropped money in the hat. 1 myself put money in. but 1 did not give It to one team alone, as I thought both teams were to di ! vide it. As for fair play, 1 can not see where Parkslde is to blame any more than Old Swedes. 1 think both teams play ed a gentlemanly game outside of a few boys who were annoying Old Swedes' catcher. But this happens at almost every game. R. R C. asks why Lewis was put In to pitch. Well, to make it short. Old Swedes would have a bad game to handle if they played j it all the way they did the last three j innings. Out of eight men who faced Lewis, he struck out seven and if he j had been settled down, he would have made It eight without a doubt. Now, i hope this finishes this game and let the managers take up the next collec tlon. because the money that went 1 into the hat is not all there is in the world. j l,et the two teams get together not for cups, collection, suppers or argu ; ments. hut for a good clean game and i to show the best team of the two.
