Baseball Magnates Consider
Case of Charles V. Murphy,
Who Says He Will Stick
Around a While Longer.
JJy Trank ii. Monke.
NEW YOKK. Doc. 10. A large
amount of "unfinished bu. infos' con
fronted the National league rnaKiiutes
today whin they procfodf-d about the
transacting of the triird May's work
tf their annual meeting.
The magnates wcic exjtected to
kick the waddintf out of the. pian of
Han Johnson and his American league
crowd for an 11 Carrie world scries.
Pres't John K. Toiler is said to he
opposed to the tlan because it smacks
too much of Kreed n the part of the
matrnatej for prolit out of the world
series and the majority of the mag
nates of the old league are supporting
Tener m his attitude.
The magnates may. and they may
j.ot decide to kioe i.re future of
Charles Webb Murphy, that is, the
future they would like to make for
Onirics. The magnates are heartily
in favor of klckin.r Charles out of their
executive set. but they wonder just
how it can he accornpiisned under the
present circumstance s.
Charles owns the controlling inter
est in the Cubs. He recently de
clared that Charles 1. Taft. who was
supposed to nave purchased lus in
terest, has failed to "come through"
with the purchase price, "'and there
fore," as Murphy put it. then, "lm
Mill in baseball and I guess I'll con
tinue to stick around a while longer."
The magnates may have taken some

ences" that Carry Herrmann held

and will manage the 1 L 1 r Yankees.
Mack, it is said, will be given a big
block of the stock free if he takes the
job. provided that Jacob Uuppert, jr.,
Iho New York brewer, buys the Yan
kees. Mack, it may be remembered, made
emphatic denials and made them re
peatedly of the lirst reports that ho
was to let Kddie Collins go. and the
magnates, recalling this, believe that
Mack is putting up the same sort of
"stall" relative to his going to the'
Of course, if Kuppcrt does not buy
the Yankees Mack will not change
jobs. Hut if he does, which is more
than likely within the next -4 hours,
Mack will get into communication
with Kuppert. One Philadelphia re
port had it that Mack was on the point
of leaving the city and was going to
pee Kuppert. who is at West liaden.
"IVdoral League" Heard.
The dread name "Federal league"
was spoken riuht out loud in the
meeting on Wednesday afternoon and
this is the first time the magnates
have admitted that they recognize!
the opposition in any way. Kven on
"Wednesday there was an effort to give
the matter an "unofficial" aspect.
Carry Herrmann was called on to
tell the meeting as a private individ
ual just what had transpired between
l:'m an 1 Charles Weeghman, president
of the Chicago Federals, in their fa
mous peace discu.-ion a few week;
"Mr. Herrmann addressed the meet
ing unofficially." said SYc-'y John 1.
Heydler. "He said that his confer
ence with Weeghman had been under
taken by him merely as an individual
and in no way as a representative of
the league. His account of what
transpired was not news, as the result
of his conference with Weeghman was
accurately reported by the press at
the time it took place."
Little Was Done.
"Wednesday's session of the club
owners was remarkable chiefly for
what it did not do. It took no action
lifter Mr. Herrmann had told of his
conference with Weeghman; It took
r.o action to investigate the ugly ru
mors that have, sprung up in connec
tion with Charles W. Murphy's alleged
"wash sale" of his stock in the Cni
eago Cubs; it took no action on the
propf sil to lengthen the world's se
ries to eleven games (although that Is
iaid to have been because of the feel
ing that the proposition never should
have been put forth and never could
be adopted with profit) and It took
no action looking to any use of the
U', 000, 000 war fund which is said to
be In the bank ready for use In a de
termined fight hgainst the Federal
About the only posiMvo thing done
was the appointment of a new com
mittee on constitution composed of
Carry Herrmann of Cincinnati; W. V.
Iiaker of Philadelphia, and Schuyler
P. Hritton of t. Louis. It now seems
likely that the meeting will adjourn
without any exciting announcements
so far as the Federals are concerned.

plies required for the large number
of men out for track this year will ar
rive today and all of the men will

opening on the big schedule.
The squud was augmented yester
day by the presence of several play
ers who have been resting up after a
strenuous season as members of the
football squad. With these new re
cruits out, the squad has probably
reached its limit and comprises some
fine material. The coach 'will have
his . hands full in choosing the best
live for the lirst game.

days will remain for the boys to get
in trim for the Arkansas Atrgies game

LOS ANGFLFS, Calif.. Dec. 10.
Frank Chance, former manager of the
New York Yankees, said today that as
early as last spring it was an open
secret that Fddie Collins intended go
ing to the Federals, at the close of the
playing season, and apparently the
only way to keep him in organized
baseball was to give him the man
agership of the White Sox.
"It was the same way with Bender
and Plank." said Chance, "but there
was nothing for the organized base
ball people to do but stand by and see
these two stars take the jump.
"The Federals gave the major
leaguers a hard tight last year," con
tinued Chance, "and they will put up
even a better scrap this year. Ward
has plenty of money and is not afraid
to spend it. and the Federals will just
about wreck things before they get
"The Federals nre out to establish
themselves no matter what the price
may be. The major leaguers are
simply demoralized: they do not
know which way to duck. They'll do
a lot of queer things before the 1915
schedule is ripped into."
NEW YORK. Dec. 10. The Federal
league is ready to give Rube Mar
quard back to the New York Giants.
Pres't It. H. Ward of the Brookfeds
who signed Marquard for nls team,
wrote a letter to that effect Wednes
day to Pres't H. N. Hempstead of the
Giants. All the organized baseball
forces must do to get Marquard back
is to convince Mr. Marquard that the
$11,000 beauty really was under a
binding contract with the Giants
when he signed with the Federals in
which case the Wards do not want
In this letter to Pres't Hempstead,
Mr. Ward takes occasion to demon
strate that the Federals are making
much greater efforts to play the game
fairly than is the Giants' management.
He instances the ca.se of William Hit
ter and says that player was actually
under contract to the Brookfeds when
the Giants signed him away from the
Ward team by using influence with
Mr. Ward also discloses that Mar
quard sought the Federals instead of
having been kidnaped by them. He
says that Rube literally came to the
Brookfed camp with his hat in
hand begging to be signed up
end assured the Wards that he
under absolutely no obligations to
The receipt of this letter literally
knocked the magnates off their feet.
They had never expected such action
in the Marquard case and at all ses
sions of the league during the present
meeting, "what we are going to do to
the Wards in this Marquard caxe"
had been a topic of discussion that
everybody seemed to relish.
It is not known what arrangement
the Wards have made with Marquard
about the $1,500 which was advanced
him when he signed the Federal
league contract. The general feeling
has been that the Rube was in a
worse fix than either the Brookfeds
or the Giants for the reason that his
action in swearing that he had no con
tract with the Giants and then accept
ing money from the Federals on his
affidavit to that effect, laid him open
to a criminal charge. Mr. Ward's
letter, however, where it says "we will
consider with Mr. Marquard a cancel
lation of his contract" leads to the be
lief that the Rube will prove amenda
ble to any suggestion that will serve to
extricate him from an awkward position.
