DIGGERS OPEN SERIES
WITH THE MAVERICKS
El Paso and Santa Rita met Satur
day afternoon in the first game of a
two canto series to determine the lead
er of the Copper league column. Fri
day afternoon the Diggers arrived in
three big cars, containing 11 players, j
and a small number or xew Mexico
fans. Van Surdam and Eckstone, who
officiated in the Hurley-Maverick series
Sunday, were selected as arbiters by
the management Eckstone behind the
bat and Van Surdam along the first
and second base path. ' -
Porter as usual inaugurated the
series for the Mavericks, while Rube
Weeks, the proud holder of a victory
record of eight straights, occupied the
rubber for the Diggers.
Sunday afternoon the deciding game
will be played, and either Gutierrez or
Nellis will toil for El Paso, with Nolan
for the visitors.

Ban Johnson, Baseball Napoleon,
Unpopular In Many Quarters Now
The Great Director and Organizer of Baseball Has Hade Some Breaks That
Have Put Him Into the "In Bad" Club for Good.
BY W. J. MacBETH.
N"
EW YORK. July 12. Ban John
son used to be a real Moses to
his American League children.
He led them out of the "wilderness of
the war- days into an era of financial
milk and honey. But like the cele
brated Duke of York with his toried
ten thousand men. having marched
his forces up the hill, the big czar
gives evidences of intention to march
them down again. The green pas
tures of the promised hare failed to
satisfy. Ban hungers once more for
the wilderness. Mighty in "war. the
American league executive chafes
under the monotony of peace. His
restless soul, thwarted in its belli
gerency toward certain foemen of the
National league, has been forced of
occasion to seek a vent in interference
with the henchmen of his own domain.
The latest outburst of the Ameri
can league autocrat was directed
against Joe Birmingham, manager of
the Cleveland club. Mr. Johnson in
timated that in his opinion Birming
ham was no fit person to be in charge
of an American league club. What
ever prompted the attack it appeared
very ill-timed. In the few short
months he had been in charge of the
Naps Birmingham had fashioned a
pennant contender from an habitual
second division aggregation. His
club was very much in evidence as a
potent factor of the struggle. His -was
showing such results as no former
Cleveland manager had shown in IS
years. And as the public after all
pays its good money in the expecta
tion of patronizing and propitiating
results, Mr. Johnson aroused no loud
huzzahs of endorsement to his attack
on Birmingham. Mr. Johnson simply
raised against the popularity in his
own bailiwick the resentment of one
more city.
Cleveland fandom is not likely to
brook the official interference of even
the mighty Johnson with a man who
la making good in its opinion.
Trouble" at II ante.
Birmingham unfortunately had
troubles of his own at the time: in
ternal dissensions that could best be
straightened out in the club house.
The great Napoleon Lajoie objected
to club discipline when his manager
thought it to the best interests of all
to give the mighty Frenchman a rest
Lajoie went over Birmingham's head
with a direct appeal to president
Charles Somers. Perhaps it was with
the idea of throwing out a hint to the
boss as to his personal views of the
matter1 that Johnson expressed him
self in such emphatic disapproval of
Birmingham. However that may be It
is quite certain now that Ban John
son and not Joe Birmingham will be
held responsible for the short-comings
ot Cleveland if the inside bickerings
develop into open club warfare in the
Forest City.
For some reason. Mr. Johnson ap
pears to have a penchant for pick
ing onto "live -wires" and endorsing
'dead ones." His meddlesome dispo-
i pit ion has "Dutched" him in half of
j the American league cities. He is
aoout as popular in c jouis as scar
let fever in a nursery. For years and
vears he was openly accused, in the
Mound City, of trying to drive Bob
j Hedges out of the league. Once
Hedges actually negotiated a sale.
make good the first payment and the
Browns reverted to the original own
ership. Ban at the time took no pains
to conceal his disappointment There
are those in New York bold enough
I to accuse Johnson of entertaining
kindred designs upon Frank Farrell's
property. Charlie Comiskey, mouth
piece of Johnson or the other way if
one is pinned down to sheer truth
declared a few months ago that with
in five years every American league
club would be owned by old time base-

ball players. Straws indeed indicate
a wnd from a dangerous quarter for
those millionaries of the Yawkey,
Somers. Farrell type whose financial
influence forced recognition of equal
ity from the National league in
Johnson's scheme of expansion.
Sew York and Big Jinn.
New York has as HtUe reason as
Boston. St Louis. Cleveland or Detroit
to worship at the shrine of Big Ban.
Enough sterling players have been
lost to the Highlanders through the
alleged advice of the league executive
to form two or three world's cham
pionship aggregations. By forcing
Jake Stahl onto Clark Griffith In
1908, Johnson not only made the "Old
Fox" a laughing stock of both big
leagues but further effected his re
tirement in disgrace at midseason.
Jake as an outfielder was very much
to the bush even though his three
years' contract called for $6000 a sea
son. The explosion of the Born Man
ager carried down in. its ruin a club
that In the first few weeks threat
ened to have the pennant clinched by
July 4.
After the darkest days of the Grif
fith and'Elberfield regime. Ban John
son allowed his personal animosity to
land a second knockout to New York's
hope of salvation. He chased George
Stalling, who had built a tailender
into a pennant possibility In two short
years Stallings however, came back
like a boomerang as manager of the
Boston Nationals this year. He has
robbed the American league of its
time-honored Boston patronage by
showing results with what everyone
considered the joke of the two big
leagues at the opening of the sea
son. It is true that the world's cham
pion Red Sox are somewhat to blame
because of their disappointing staxt
But public prejudice was instilled dur
ing the world's series last fall when
on the last day no provision of ac
commodation was made for some thou
sands of loyal Red Sox rooters who
had accompanied the team to and
from between the Hub and New York
for each game. Robert McRoy for
many years Johnson's private secre
tary and who is now alleged to rep
resent Johnson interests in Boston,
was responsible for the "bone." Of
course Ban Johnson has to share the
blame.
Detroit Sours on Johnson.
Detroit soured on Johnson because
of Ban's animosity toward Hughie
Jennings Johnson rebuked Jennings
for his friendliness toward McGraw
during the world's series between the
Giants and Athletics in 1911. Ban
was quoted at the time as intimating
that Jennings would be driven out of
the American league because of al
leged treason in tipping off McGraw
to Philadelphia weaknesses. Frank
Navln beat Johnson to it by renewing
Hughle's contract
Ban. however, should worry a whole
lot. He is sure of his job for 18 more
years on a term election for 20 sea
sons. He is supposed to get $25,000 a.
year but many think that part of it Is
a press agent story. It is quite true,
however, that he will never have to
carry a hod so long as organized base-
' ball endures.
Ills Ghus Silenced.
The sentiment of the American
league club president however, seems
to have undergone somewhat of a
change "within the past few years. On
a number of occasions they have ac
tually silenced Ban when he has pre
pared to rip organized baseball, as
typified by his foemen of the National
league, right up the back. Twice he
claimed he had C. W. Murphy at the
brink of the chute for the "Down and
Out" club but his own supporters si
lenced his guns because apprehensive
that scandal might affect the whole
organization. He was also going to
make John T. Brush jump through a

knothole for the New York club's al
leged manipulation of sales of the
world's scries tickets in 1911. Mr.
Brush made Mr. Johnson endorse a
public exoneration from the charges.
His long promised airing of the um
pire bribery charges at the Polo
grounds in 1908 fell flat after he had
talked himself into a position that
made him appear absolutely ridicu
lous. There is no doubt that Mr. Johnson
has been a great factor toward put
ting organized baseball on a sound and
unimpeachable footing. For that he
deserves due credit He has also suc
ceeded at last in impressing upon
Charlie Murphy the objection to loose
talk. Ban could do no better than to
adopt the same sort of policy that
was crammed down Murphy's throat
A Xew LraKat.
Over in the west, -where the Amer
ican league is very weak and where
Ban is correspondingly unpopular, a
law, has sprung Into existence. It docs
-well in its struggling way. certainly
It has held from the start the support
of the press, which is no mean attribute
to final success And in the meantime
will be threshed out in a Missouri law
court the question of whether organ
ized baseball as now constituted is in
deed a "trust" The test case arises
from a suit for 350,000 damages
brought by Jack O'Connor, former
manager of the St Louis Browns in
-which Johnson and all eight American
league club presidents are named as de
fendants. O'Connor who is now a man
ager in the Federal league, was ar
bitrarily dismissed by Johnson for al
leged connection with manipulation of
a game in St Louis between the
Browns and Naps so that Lajoie might
be given enough hits on the day to
beat out Ty Cobb for the batting
championship and an automobile that
went with it
Mr. Johnson, who has religiously
side stepped everything that smacked
of scandal in his own league hushed
up the unfortunate incident by fir
ing O'Connor and several other players
supposed to be directly implicated.
Later O'Connor got through the civil
courts a judgment against the St
Louis Americans for the amount of
salary due on the unexpired contract

Collins Leads In Double Play Work
Second Sacker of the Athletics Has Started 16 of His Team's Two-Play Mas
sacres Chapman, of the Naps, Is a Close Second.
FANS are not in the habit of ruin
ing their eyesight in studying the
fielding records of the major
league players, and there are rew mem
bers of the Baseball Writers Associa
tion of America who build up feature
stories regarding the defensive work
of the pastimers. Eddie Collins, guar
dian for the White Elephants or the
middle cushion, is acknowledged ty all
experts to be the keystone king of the
American league, but when any author
ity sets out to prove that the Columbia
graduate is the peer of his contempo
raries he never rushes to the guide
books for statistical information on the
subject.
A good way to find out bow swift a
fielder is, some persons think, is to
take the number of double plays a.' man
starts. Up to July 1 the American
leaguers had rid their systems or 380
dual killings, the man who started most
of them teing Collins. Re took the
initiative in 16 of his team's twoply
massacres.
Chapman In Speedy.
The Johnsonites' swiftest shortstop,
according to the performances in the
double play league, is Ray Chapman of
the Nans. He Inaugurated a dozen
plays that resulted in the retirement
I of a pair of runners. In figuring Chap
man s speed as an tnaugurator ox
double plays, it should he remembered
that he has been often absent from
the Naps' lineup because of Injuries
and it is possible that had he played
all season long, as has Collins, he would
now have started just as many twoply
killings.
The third basemen who have started
the greatest number of double plays
are Frank Baker of the White Ele
phants and Ivan Olson of the Naps.
Each man has inaugurated six. George
Stovall of the Browns shows the way
to the first sackers. having been the
pioneer in seven dual massacres.
Battery Men Are Tied.
In the battery department there is
a tie for the honors catchers Schalk
of the White Sox and Agnew of the
Brown hose each having started four.
So have pitchers Eddie Clcotte. of Chi
cago, and Walter Johnson, of Wash
ington. A Little Sport;
JIMMMY OALLAHANV manager or
the Chicago White Sox. has re
ceived a letter from secretary of
state Bryan, who has promised to ask
the United States consuls abroad to
help make things pleasant for players
on the Giants-White Sox trip, in Octo
ber. The itinerary of the globe trot
ting tour of the teams will probably
be announced In a few weeks.
Christy Mathewson, the star Giant
twirler, is writing a play to be staged
at a New York theater this fall It will
be called "Fair Play." and baseball is
the theme.' Mathewson Is reported as
working on the plot with Mrs. Rita
Johnson, author of "Brown of Har
vard." The Cubs opened the series against
the Giants minus the services of two
inflelders. Helnie Zimmerman was out
of the game with a sprained ankle.
Art Bridewell will not play short until
a gash on his knee is healed.
Hughey Jennings, of the Detroit
Tigers, is now confronted with the task
of rebuilding his team. His Infield has
been practically shot to pieces. Jen
nings is going to the colleges for
talent He has a flock of rah rahs on
his squad trying for jobs.
