That boxing has its goad virtues Is
forcibly brought out In an editorial
printed in the New York World of a
recent date The editorial, under the
head "Spirit of Manly Art," follows
"Boxing, of ilsolf, Is n pastime in
which it maj be talcen that every boy
of Anglo-Saxon heritage at some time
has engaged if a boy of red blood and
physical activity Primarily, every
human by instinct seeks to acquire

lurking fear of attack some day from

New York, Oct. 4. Expert opinions
on the outcome of tho world's cham
pionship baseball series:
Manager John McGraw of tho New
York- Giants. I make no predictions,
but the boys feel confident of victory.
They have had the experience of one
world's series, and it will not look
like Biich a big event to them this
time. I look for a New York victory.
Manager Jake Stahl, Boston Red
Sox The same kind of ball which
won the American leagoe pennant will
take the world's championship, for
thore are as good clubs in the Amer
ican league as tho Giants. I believe
that I have the best team In the coun
try today and that the result of the
world's series will confirm this state
ment Manager John Kling, Boston Braves
Tho onlv two men of the Red Sox to
be afraid of are Speaker and Wood,
and I don't think any two men are
going to beat a club as strong as the
Manager Connie Mack. Athletics,
last wear's world's champions Un
less tho unforeseen happens, the Red
Sox will rightfully claim the 1912
world's championship, but baseball
Is full of unforeseen happenings.
Manager Joe Birmingham, Clove
land Naps It will bo tho closest se
ries in years. New York is stronger
than most American league support
ers believe, but I expect Boston to
Manager Fred Clarke, Pittsburgh
Pirates I never made a prediction In
ray life either as to the National
loaguo ponnant or as to a world's
championship, and I can't think of
breaking my rule at this late day. Th0
Giants are deserving of great credit
for winning the banner in th Na
tional league, and naturally I would
like to see thorn win.
Hughev Jennings, manager Detroit
Tlgcri. Boston should win. McGraw
Is a greater manager than Stahl, but
tho Red Sox haxe a little better pitch
ers, much better catcher in Carrigan
than the Giants have in Meyers. Tho
infields are about even, but Boston's
outfield is superior.
Joe Tinker, acting manager of the
Chicafo -Cubs Big Jeff Tcsreau looms
up aa the hope of the Glanta. If Tos-
reau flls to come through T can Bee
no hope for McGraw's men. If TeR
reau does come through, then the
Giants will stand an excollent chanco
of winning the world's championship.
James J. Oallahnn, manager Chi
cago Whito Sox In a short series
pitching is the important point, and
the team that gets the best work
from tho pitchers should win. Nat
urally, I favor tho Red, Sox. Stahl has
a great man In Wood and a wonderful
team too, and tho Giants will have
to go somo to beat our champions.
Charley Dooin, manager of the
Phillies I think the Giants will beat
tho Red Sox on account of their
pitching staff Mathewson will bo
there in the pinches, and Tesreau and
jMaiqunrd can hold their o-nn
George Stovall, manager of the St.
Louis Browns Boston has a clever
pitching staff and the greatest out
field I ever saw. The infield is above
tho ordinary. Anything is possible
In a short serieB, but it seems to me
that the American league winners will
take the big series.
New York Oct !. "Murphy and
Fogel ought to be made to prove their
wild assertions about the umpires,
and, failing lo do so, they should be
driven out of organized baseball,' de
clared John McGraw, the Giants' ng
gres8lvo leader "It's strange that
Murphy and Fogel arc the only club
owners who have cast reflection upon
tho honesty of baseball.
"If there was anything wrong,
wouldn't some other club owner make
a kick, too? Fogel s laughed at in
Philadelphia, and e.ierybod knows
that Murphy Is discredited in Chica
go Why. Murphy's attack on the
Chicago players, which has been re
sented by Frank Chance, shows the
kind of a person that ccntiols Na
tional league ball ju that city "
"Fogel is all wrong," said President
Ebotts of the Brooiclvn club "I
don't agree with him -alien he says
that tho Giants won twenty-one
games because of unfair decisions by
tho umpires I think the Giants hae
won tho pennant honeslh and fairlv
and I don't belle; e in Taking awaT
any credit. It is true, however, that
there has been much trouble over
the umpiring in tho Natnnnl league
this season, due to tho apDointment
of incompetent officials Even Mr
Herrmann has Just reached the con
clusion that one of the umpires Isn't
fit for the job. I nm not crying 'rob
bery,' however, and I've nothing more
to say except that Fogel has gone too
far without any real basis for his
charges "
Tho wires were kept hot by the big
baseball men after Foeel's charges
had beon read. It is understood that
President Brush of tho New York
club, who is too ill to take part In a
controversv of this kind, notified Sec
retary O'Brien to adopt a vigorous
O'Brien, It was leportcd, at onco
communicated with Thomas J. Lynch,
president of the National league, ask
ing that tho investigation or Fogel's
chage3 be Instituted without further
delay. It was also said that a wire
was sent to August Terrmann chair
man of the national baseball com
mission, asking for advice. It is not
a secret that tho commission Messrs.
Herrmann, Lynch and Ban Johnson
havo all along been opposed to the
methods and vaporizing of Fogel and
Murphy, and If there Is any way tnat
these scandalous charges can be tatf
en up by the commission, there Is
bound to be excitement.
Players and fans throughout tho
baseball world regarded Frank Chance,
or "Husk," as he was called, as one
of the most courageous ball playe'rs
and managers that ever stepped on a
field Tho remark, "He bac more
neryo than anyone who over wore a
uniform," has been frequently ap
plied to 'lira.
John McGraw of the New York
Giants and Fred Clarko credited him
tfith being a man of unlimited nerve.
Fighting, and fighting lo a finish,
ivas one of tho chief characteristics
at the "Peerless Leader," as he was
termed by baseball men. While in a
ball gamo he neer was known to
Quit Even if the game was hope
lessly lost ho never retired from his
position, but always stuck to the
finish, battling with the same deter
mination aa if the contoat was won.
Ab a baseball player, Chance rank
ed as one of the best. He developed
from a catcher into one of the great
est first basemen in the game. Ho
was a heavy, sure, pinch hitter of the
.300 class. He never feared a run
Der sliding into him to tho base. And
as a base runner ho was a star and
was up with the foremost for years.
He was a hard, desperate slider, and
never allowed an lnflelder blocking
tho base to prevent him from hitting
the dirt. Ho held tho National league
base stealing record ono year.
Chance never know what it was to
quit The fact thatthe vb hit in tho
Doston, Oct. 5. No membor of the
team which will atiivo next week to
capture tho world's championship for
Boston calls this city his home. Only
three of tho players, In fnct, live in
Massachusetts Tho homes of the
others are scattered through a dozen
Btates, three coming from distant Cal
ifornia, Garland (Jake) Stahl, the playing
manager, 1b the oldest membor of the
team, but he Is onl 31. Heine Wag-
ner, captain und shortstop, has been
the longest in baseball, rounding out
11 years this season.

In his career as manager of the
Chicago ball club critics declared he
showed more baseball than any other
leader In the game. He never per
mitted his men to get Into a rut of
plajing the same style ot game. He
changed plans of attack as often as
four or five times in a singlo
game What brought so many vic
tories to his ball team was his ability
to judge the opponent's style of at

Detroit. Oct 3 "Walter Johnson is
far and away a hotter pitcher than
Joe ood," said iirry I.ajoie, than
whom there could scarcely bo a better
Judge of pitching.
"Wood haa been pitching 'way be
yond his ability this season, simply
becauso he has had a great team
working with him Thoro never was
and I doubt if there ever will be as
great a pitcher as Johnson He sim
ply has so much stuff and speed that
it ho turned loose his hardest throw
with his stuff on It, no catcher could
got down in time to receive tho ball.
"Every ball he throws has stuff
on it. Somo of the hops his fast ones
take are bigger curves than the big
gest averago pitcher has, I've seen
him throw balls up to the plate that
didn't look larger than a pinhead
Wood ia a good pitcher, all right, but
he is simply not in Johnson's class
nor Is anybody clso.
"Wood broko into the league from
Kansas City against us In 1908, in
Boston. There was a llttlo house oatj
in eerier field and we had about
seven men who were hitting around
"Wow1 What a grand reception he
got! First we'd knock a brick out
of tho chimney, then a few shingles
off the roof, then we'd shatter a win
dow pane. We had that little house'
ready for the wrecking crew to cart
away when we got through
"Nobody ever did anything like that
to Johnson, and never will. When a
follow is coaching off first when he's
pllchlnr, it's next to Impossible to aoe
hlB fast one. If he didn't hae good
control he would kill so many batters
he would be barred from the league
He'd wreck every club he pitched
against There's next to no chance to
duck or back away from hib balls.
"He hit this kid Martin of tho
Highlanders on the head last sprin?
with one of his cJrvos or slow balls,
and Martin was out for weeks.
"Almost any time you get a hit off
1 Johnson don t figure that you're
smart Just figure it that you're
lucky; lucky that jou happen to make
that blind 'swine in the spot whero
the ball came,
"If all the pitchers in tho league
were llko Johnson the pitcher's box
would have to be placed at second
base so ono club could get a run with
out the gamo going Into extra innings."
There are two record holders on the 1
paths which lead to tho bench and the I
clubhouse in the National and Amer
ican leagues Johnnie Evers, Cub ex
traordinary, and Clark Griffith, come
back manager of the chosty WaBhlng
toniana. For tho present season tho
former finlflhea In a class by himself,
but Johnnie is still several passages
behind tho grand total. For several
years the irrepressible "Griff" was
alone and running easy. He hnd no
I real competition in tho line of "kid
ding" the umpire and being reported
to the head of the league. Eaoh of
Griffith's orations on the diamond
used to coat him about $10 a minute
and his monthly pay checks were
tampered with accordingly. For a
time "Griff" kept the National lenguo
in spending money, then, switching
his allegiance to the Americans, ho W
appreciably relieved the financial M
stringency in Johnson's circuit with J
tho money collected by the faithful w
"umps." Griffith took a flyer into f
tho National and the league began to f j
resume dividends. Now ho Is baok l
fn the American, but the returns this il
senson have beon oa a mcaser scale y
In comparison with former years. '
Evera becamo a confidant of tho um
pires from the day ho broko Into the 1
major league He poured into their 3
eais all the words that Samuel John-
son forgot to put into his Justly cele- -i
brated lexloon and each accent was 1
assessed at so much per, with tho re-
suit that Johnnie has to stick to one
automobile a year instead of two
Thus Is has como to pass that envious
rivals with bucolic wit have nominated !
Johnnie and "Griff the two greatest "
"crabB" of oi-r national pastime. Two j'
columns are devoted to the genus I
"crab" In the, dlctfonary. The average i
umpire who has "met" Evers thinks 1
the lexicographer didn't study hla j
subject much while President Lynch I
has worn out the wireB with. "Three l
days," "five days," "Indefinitely,"
"twenty-five dollars," "fifty dollars." ij
But according to all of Griffith's and
Evers' friends, and they are legion,
both have been tabbed wrong, and
tho fact that fines have been levied
and vacations urged are credited to
the hory finish enveloping the gray
matter of tyrannical umpires and con- ', '
tiding league heads. :
