Take Joe Tinker, tho original jump er. A month ago he had to leave the gamo owing to injuries und won't he aMu to play aguln this season. Tinker, who batted .317 in the National league in 1913, must have leen hack, for when 'he was obliged to quit tho Chifeds hln batting percentage was only .242. Addison Hrcnnan has been a prize package of misfortune all ear. Al though Tinker counted tin l'.rennan being one of his mainstays, the jump lrg i'hil contracted rheumatism last spring and has been virtually useless ull season. lirenn-tn has pitched only nix games this year and he lost four of them. Under the circnmstanci President llaker la not worrying because l!ren nan'a jumping saved him from having an invalid on his hands. Klrkpatrkk, the inlithler who left the Dodgem for Baltimore, broke his leg Just before the season started. Only a short time ago was he able to got in the game, and then hla leg couldn't stand Infield work. He has been playing In left field. Tom Seaton did great work for Prooklyn, but has paid the penalty for overtaxing his arm. He has ptraln ed hln shoulder so severely that he won't bo able to throw a ball for the rest of the reason. Doubt Is even ex pressed that he will ever be able t' pitch again.

Provided the Giants qualify as world's series en trants. Martin James O'Toole, procur ed by the McGrawttes from the Pir utes. will be able to participate in the games for the championship of the universe, it was announced by Secre tary John lleydler of the National league today. And behind this an- nouruemcnt there Is a story. The world's series rules, as laid down by the national commission, pro vide that "to be eligible for the world's championship series a player must be a bonaflde member of a qualifying team under a regular contract, approv ed and promulgated by the president of the major league of which some club is a member, on or before the 31st day of August of each year." Martin James Just sneaks in under this rule, or will sneak In if the (3iant.i win the National league pen nant. His purchase by the New York club was announced in the afternoon papers of Gotham and the Smoky City on Tuesday. Sept. 1. which led to tho supposition that McGraw had not swung the deal until the Giants were on their way to this city. Tim Nailonul league records show that McGraw must have bought O'Toole some time before dinner on Aug. 31, for that is tbe date mentioned m the contract as when Pittsburgh assigned l.lm to New York. DAR CHAMPS FROM AUTO. Hugh Jennings Would Give Men On Bottom Chance. Hughev Jennings is not n believer in the Hlbllenl saying: "To him that hath shall be given." Hu' hey believes the conditions at tending tl" tiward of the Chalmers au to to the most valuable players In the two big leagues should be amended so that the members of the pennant-win ning teams be barred from considera tion. Rich of the members of the pennant winners." says Jennings, "gets any- whero fiom $3,000 to $4,000 as his share of the world's series receipts and I don't think It right that one of them should also be given an automobile. A championship player has the advant age of having other champions work- in- along with him. The fact that he is surrounded by players of great skill and ability causes him to acquire L-reater confidence and pile up a great er batting average than he would were lie with a team down In the second division where the team splilt would be lack !nt," THE MAKING OF JAMES. Manager Came Cloae To Spoiling Able Youngster. ,,:m rr..a ihn Moston National pitcher, who was with Seattle In 1912. wouhl have been released ir.-in Seattle club by Jack Marry had It not been for Tealey Raymond. The boy utu utmnir. nervous and apt to be wild, and Jack kept Jerking him or every time he walked a man or two until Mill was rapidly losing i In himself. Tealey finally appealed to Jack, and i ..r him tt. w in there one game, even If .they make a hundred runs off him Just to show you nave n-n"--lark did so. and the boy ,u1,1,m1 out a victory. t it was not until Raymond succeeoeu - tit Times showed his real claai. for he liked Tealey and worked LOOKS CHIEF RENDER OLD RELIABLE Will Be Connie Mack's Mainstay In the Coming Series While warming up for the world's series, Charles Albert Mender is com piling u recoid for effectives that seems to have been lost sight of in tha hurrahing attending the wild rush of the Mraves in the National league. Mender leads the pitchers in the Am erican league with a record of 13 vic tories in 18 games and since May 2fi he was not defeated until Sept. 12. Fearing that too much publicity might tend to draw Mender's attention from the work at hand, "Connie" Mack had not said a word about the Chippe wa's attack on the record of 19 straight triumphs established by "Rubo" Mar quard two years ago. The chief had a string of 13 straight and in his fourteenth seemed destined to be returned a leader when Washing ton pounded out six runs off his t rl Ing in the sixth Inning of the second game of a double-header on Labor diy, but his old ally. "Kdilie" Plank, went to the rescue and held light while the Athletics were grinding out victory by 8 to 7 by a belated batting spree. Mender and Mack seem to ngreo con cerning record making. Mender is much more concerned about being aide to appear at best in the October clas sic than he is in rushing through any string of vi,,"ies that will displace the Giants' len-hander in the record books. In 24 games the "Chief" has taken part in this season the hits by opponents have run Into double fig ures on only our occasions nnd twice Mender was on the winning side de spite the free hitting of opponents. John McGraw and George Stalling have both heard that Mender will be ready In October. The Chief's pitching record showing that opponents were blanked half a dozen times while the IS straight rec ord was being built, follows: Date. Opponent. April 29 New York.

Connie Mack Points to Weaknesses Shown. "Autos and soft living have spoiled the Plants," says Connie Mack, adding anou.cr line to the literature of hard work. Thf greatest books, they say, have been written In . arrets, the greatest Inventions have been made by penniless Inventors. The greatest fighting has been done by hungry and desperate armies. And It's a gener ally recognized fact that the average millionaire doesn't work as hard as a longshoreman or - $20 a month farm hand. During the short 'time left Johnny McGraw would do well to have the Giants put their autos In storage, stop having their breakfasts In bed. cut out the beauty sleeps and deny themselves the pleasure of exercising their ten thousand dollar trotters on the speed way, playing golf at million dollar clubs, attending $200 ft plate dinners, sailing their steam yachts, and gener ally comport themselves like hard working athletes Instead of aoft hand ed favorites of fortune. Otherwise these amusements may keep their minds off the game until it la too late to cop the pennant and thf world aerlei money. r 1 BASEBALL J STANDINGS OF THE TEAMS. American League. Tf. Ii. Pet.

Fullcrton. The course of the major leagues has been for years dominated by self ishness, and by the abuse of the power of the majors over the minors. The nlckle grabbing policy of the rich has worked a revulsion ,f feeling among the minois, and the latest move is nearly the climax. There Is no complaint on the part of anyone if the major National Commis sion desires to keep the draft a secret. They announce that it was done to frustrate the schemes of the Federal league. This is rather a latr-h. Tho Foils have had their scouts in all the major leagues all season, and further than that they have had confidential rejiorts on players from some manag ers and owners who are on the other tdde. The reason for conducting the draft In secret is this; the major leagues insist that the mi r league owners shall sign the players to major league contracts before the majors will pay over the draft price. The draft there fore Is beltv; kept secret to prevent the Feds from llnding out w ho the dis satisfied ball players are and not to prevent them from llndin-i out which were drafted. The major leagues are angry and not only angry, but desperate. About half of the clubs In the minor leagues are nearly "broke." The international league and the American association, the "Dig" minors, are all shot to piec es. The Coast league escaped more easll. but they have lost at least $40, Ono worth of players. The smaller miners ere hurt desperately. The Southern association not only Is ready f..r revolt, but Is in rpen sym pathy with the Federals. It Is not so nui'li l!rt they love the Feds as that they ill not think they gt either pro tection or a sMiiare deal from the Na tional t ommissioii. Three of the Pacifl Coast league owners have been ready for rebellion for six eais. The Nor! Invest league crowd are nunitist the commission. There Is n growing feeling that base ball, as a business, has been operated for the benefit of the rich and against tho small clubs. Philadelphia's yearly loss on account of rnts is estimated nt $ I.

"Mr, Mrush was in an adjoining room. Suddenly the tape said the game had been stopped because of a fight between a Giant and a I'll illy plaver. "I was new at the business side of the game then, and thought the affair a calamity for baseball. So' I d s hed Into Mr. Mrush's roi.m and exelaii ied: 'Isn't this terrPde." ""Why, One (,f our men Just had a fight with a Philadelphia player and the game has been stopped,' 1 answer cd. 'Horrible, isn't if." "Mr. Mrush smiled, 'oh. I don't think It's as bad as all that," be said. I believe they'll have one of their largest crowds In history at the Phila delphia park tomorrow.' "And so It proved. They just had to jiack and Jam the crowds in. The scrap had whetted their enthusiasm." A. F. Cooper, dead in New York, aged 97, was a grandson of Novelist James Fennlmore Cooper.
