ground keepers or players and thoae
who didn't laugh looked astonished
when you asked
How many managerial failures will
bo recorded in the major leagues this
year? The answer cannot be given
until all the club owuers w.iosc hopes
have been disappointed this season
make up their minds about the next.
Before the first of September wns
reached there were two switches in
the Ameican league. Long before that
date Rhody Wallace surrendered the
management of the St. Louis Browne
to George Stovall, whose previous
succeHK lu piloting the Cleveland team
after Jim McGuirc resigned on May 3,
1911, made him the logical candidate
for the job.
Just as the Naps braced up under
Stovall's lcadeiship last year and
pushed Into third place, from a pool
position near the tail, so the Browns
havo improved under now leadership
and have actually a good chance to
escape the tail end after being hope
less to all appearances for the bctte
part of two Bcasona Those two ac
complishments make it practically
certain Stovall will be retained by
Colonel Hedges, the master of the
Harry Davis, vho was signed to
succeed McGuirc when the veteran
catcher resigned, but who could not
get free from Philadelphia until the
end of the season, found the situation
confronting him in the Ohio town too
tough or solution. There Ib no doubt
the Cleveland olub would have retain
ed Stovall after his good showing if
It had not contracted with Davis.
There was only one way for Davis to
still the complaints and that wan to
win a pennant. Ho could not do that
nor make as good a showing with the
team as Stovall did. There was only
ono finish and Davis beat the club to
it. What Cleveland will do for n man
ager next year Is uncortaln, but Bir
mingham has been given full control,
and it Ib a cinch if tho team braces
up under him, President Somers will
not repeat tho Stovall-Davls mistake.
One Other Candidate.
There Ib only one other candidato
for the ex-manager list In tho Am
erican league. He Is Harrj, Wolver
ton of the New York Yank'ees Wol
verton came from the Pacific coast
with a great reputation, but found the
conditions confronting him in the Go
tham town a little different There
was an ex-manager among the play
ers in fie person of Hal Chase nnd a
star holding out in the person of Ed
die Sweeney, his only reliable catcher.
Before these two problems were solv
ed the Yankees wero down and out
and in tho last half of the season
there was bo little improvement that
tho gosslpB are busy slating a new
name for Wolverton's place.
There are three possible candidates
for the discard In the National league.
Henry O'Day, formerly Hank, Bill
Dahlen and John G. Kllng. To' thoss
who know the condition under which
all three have labored there is no dis
position to regard them as failures,
but a change may bo favored by the
club ownerH.
O'Day probably would be in much
greater favor in Cincinnati If the RedB
had not gone out In front and lalsed
high hopes hopes that were bound to
be dashed because the material was
not there for a championship team,
O'Day has dono as well as any man
unfamiliar with what he was up
.against could be expected to do, and
If Herrmann is wiso O'Day will got
another chance. '
Kllng Handicapped.
Johnny Kllng was handicapped at
the early part of the se-ison by tho
attempts of President John M. Ward
to run tlie club on tho s'cale that per
tained when Ward himself was in
baseball back in the laBt century. Nol
their his players nor the public would
stand for it, and James Gaffney, own
er of tho club, finally gave Ward a
stated time in which to buy or sell.
Ward Bold, but It was too late to pro
duco much Improvement in a tail-end
team Gaffney thinks pretty well of
Kllng. but the catcher contomplatos
quitting the game altogether lu favor
of another big billiard emporium to
excel the one that was burned
Dahlen in the two j'ears he hna
managed Brooklyn has done as well
as his numerous immediate prodoccs
aors and not better It is doubtlc33
if any ono can do much better unloss
the Brooklyn club chances its sjstom
when It deserts the old grounds for
the now. Thore is eyery likelihood
that the Infants will be under new
leadership in 1913, because EbbetU
believes In frequent changes of man
agers as well as raiment.
Not all the other managoments are
fixed for 1913 There is a possibility
that two of the best leaders In base
ball will be missed nfext year, but as
yet it is regarded as oaly a possibility.

While the basebill fans of tho coun
try will readily admit that tho recent
pitching feat of Jube Marquard of the
New York Giants was a wonderful
performance, I jm Inclined to believe
that tho roal nrarlt of his feat Is not
so thoroughly understood. In my
opinion, Marqucrd has performed not
only in record freaking style, but has
sot a new reco;d that will stand for
many, many jears to come. It is
doubtful If his record will be dupli

enforced and whore the task of win
ning a game is made just as difficult
as Bclence and class can accomplish.
There is a possibility that the feat
may bo equaled in some minor league,
which I seriously doubt, but for nn.
man to win 19 straight games in a
major league championship season,
where the pitcher is opposed by the
cream of the baseball world and whera
class meets class and the abloBt gon
orals of the diamond are plotting for
your downfall, is an achievement that
must go down lu history as a record
to be shot at by tho future greats of
the big brush heaving department. In
stances may be cited where In tho
early days of baseball some pitcher
has won more consocuthe games than
Marquard, but the fact muBt not be
overlooked that baseball then and
baseball now are so widely different
in stylo of play, rule3 of play and
pitching, and tn the science of the
gamo, that comparisons of records
made then and now would be ridicu
lous Naturally, some will say that Mar
quard was lucky to hang up such a
great record. Granted. Baseball luck
Is a part of the game and It Ib one
of the biggest factors in the success
of tho championship team. But luck
must be strongly backed up with class
before It can become an effective fea
ture in any performance upon tho dia

New York, Oct 11. Thoy'ro sound
ing taps over Mike Donlin's baseball
caroer In Pltssburg Manager Clarke
says of the mussy one: "Mike is a
fine hitter, but Is alow and can't help
it. All season I have been hampered
by having the team choked on the
bases for want of speed. I will bench
tho alow boys."
So it's exile for Mike. For the gen
tleman of histrionic talent Is not the
sort to be content with the office of
bench warmer. Besides, thero's no ad
vertisement In It and tho "ad" was
over In Mike's mind when ho returned
to the game.
Mike is the wonder of baseball, in i
a waj. Men who knew him when he I
first dawned on St, Louis aa a rocrult
from California, and who hark back
to the uncouth rowdy Mike was at that
period, look with wondor on the pol
ished, affable, clover and likeable fel
iow Donlin is today. It's transforma
tion that hns tho Cinderella pumpkin
coach backed into the toy class.
Mike wtis a boozer, a bruiser and
all around champion bad actor in his
day. He was lu cutting scrapes,
white light battles and oven in prison.
There was riot In his blood; but It was
unbounded spirit and energy rather
than viciousneas subsequent events
have proved.
For when Mike's ardor cooled and
ho foil into good hands to-wit, his
wlfo'B wonders began to work. In
five or six yeara the change in Donlin
was bo marked aa to bo almost unbe
lievable. That it Ib permanent now
there is no doubt
Donlin probably doe not have toj
