The latter are not sure yet just what
Is the matter with the left eye. which
haB been bothering Patsy, but believe
that some cuticle Is loose in the eye
that will have to be absorbed before
Kline will be able to use the eye as

If everything goes right with the
little fighter—and all concerned have
confidence It will—he will be ready for
Abe Attell, Jeo Coster, whom he will
meet at the Whirlwind A. C., and
Tommy O’Toole, at Jack O'Brien’s

The Kohler automobile people are
considering the advisability of giving

Jacob Dorland, a Market street busi

the Newark ball club asking Joe Mc

of the opening day parade up Market
street to the Court House.
It was planned to have the parade
go 'c ver Washington street and down
Market. The club will probably grant
the request.
Princeton's new 40,000 stadium shows

his natural position by the Yankee
manager—third base. He’ll be a good
man there. Lots of major leaguers
make serious mistakes changing men

the Yankee's third-sacker this season.
The humor of his present situation
probably does not strike Jack Johnson
ns It does the outside world when they
read of him being placed on the
‘whitewashing squad” In the county
Jail In ’Frisco. That automobile rld“,
bringing with It that 25-day sentence,
was anything but pleasing to the big

a theatrical sketch out of It, namely,
"The New White Hope."

Fogler has signed his contract to

Calls Men to His Room and
Warns Them Against Rule*
NASHVILLE. Tenn., March 30.
Manager frank chance ha*
called to account every member
of the Cuba who Is staying out
late at night. Chance spent a great
1 part of Tuesday night In the hotel
i lobby waiting for two athletes to re
turn. Yesterday he called a meeting
of every member of the team In his
room and gave a lecture such as he
never has delivered before on the train
ing rules of the club.
The affair cost one of the athletes
$1,200, and it may cost the other a job.
The first had not signed a contract
I and had asked for a raise of $600 In
pay. It looked as If he would get it
for he was working In first class form,
but the manager demanded the con
tract, which was the same as last year
and tore It Into bits, announcing that
a new contract with a cut of $600 from
last year would be offered.
"I'm not going to sit up any more
nights to see who's not getting In be
fore midnight," said Chance. "A man
ager of a ball club has enough to worry
about In running the team on the field
I'm going along and run this team. If
I get fired that's all right, but I’ll not
let any ballplayers drive me out of
the game. Nearly all the fellows are
hustling every day for the good of
the club and for their own good, and
It's not right to have three or tout
of them making it hard for all."

“Iron Man” Sends That Order to
Lakewood Todav*-Prac=
tise Gingery.
[From & Staff Correspondent, j
LAKEWOOD, March 30.
I' NSTRUCTIONS to pay Frank Cady
and Lew McCarty at first in prac
tise games were received by Cap
tain McAllister, of the Bengals, from
l Manager Joe McGinnlty today. Cady
and McCarty are catchers, and the
| "Iron Man" believes that one of them
| will be ab e to fill the bill until Joe
Agler, who sprained his ankle yester
I day afternoon while Jumping for a high
i heave, recovers from his injury.
Agler had a rather bad night. He
i did not sleep wel. and had a slight
j fever this morning. He will be able to
! make the trip to Newark on Sunday,
as he Is anxious to see his old friend,
; Larry Schlafly, who wll. watch the
• game between the Bengals and the
i Athletics. The Beach City kid will be
I able to resume his position at first in
about ten days.
The day dawned cloudy and warm,
1 but there was a prospect for a stren
uous workout In both the morning and
I evening sessions.
i Bill Louden is expected to arrive at
j Lakewood before Sunday.
Practise Full of Ginger.
After watching the Bengals perform
and giving his men Instructions for an
hour and a half, Joe McGinnlty re
turned to Newark before noon with his
party yesterday.
In the morning practise the hit-and
run game was worked to perfection,
and the newcomers became acquainted
with the Tigers’ signals. Bob Gan ey
Is an adept at th<* Inside came, and so
is Oeorge Brown, both having bene
fited by their big league experience.
A fifteen-minute workout at fielding
followed the batting practise. Hall at
third, Mryer at short, Nee at second
and Agler at first made a ehain-llght
nlng combination This Penny Meyer
boy is a handy sort of a fellow to ha ve
around. He can do nnvth ng. from
pinch hitting to utility fie’dlng, coming
and goinc. and is out to retain the
title as champion coach< r of the 'eague,
meeting a'l comers. B’ nry is i s full of
the old “ren" and enthusiasm ns ever.
He savs that the Tieers have it all over
the, St. Louts Cardina's, and would
make Roger Bresnahan's hands work
hard to figure at all in a game with
the Bengal bitters.
Some of the bovs wanted to nlay a
practise game yesterday aftern -on, but I
the Feld was not in th~ best condition,
and the game was ra's^d up. The reg
ular practise of fielding and batting
was gone through and the boys arrived
at the hotel Just as a heavy shower
came up.
It did not take Frnnk Swavne long
to get acquainted after be struck camp.
Swayne roomed with Johnny Flater
while both were members of the Utica
tram In 1907. He also remem’-ered Cy
Parkin, who twirled for Binghamton
before being picked un and turned over
to Newark by the New York Amer
icans Later Cy was farmed out to
Utica, but burned the old league up,
and Joe McGinnlty recalled him.
Pitcher Beil, of the Brooklyn team,
and Outfielder Moran, of the Rochester
outfit, hall from Austin, Pa., Swayne's
town. The Tiger cub knows both well.
Besides Swayne, two other players,
who were members of the Trenton Tri
State League, have advanced this year.
First Baseman Tarleton, who goes tq
Providence, is one of them. A pitcher
named Fay will try to make good with
Indianapolis. The new Newarker says
that Tarleton is a good first-sacker and
w ill make his mark in the Eastern.
Lew McCarty was with Lancaster
a while last year, and Swayne says that
he showed up well behind the plate and
hit pretty consistently. He did not get
many opportunities to play for some
reason or other and was dropped. Mc
Carty gives promise of developing into
a valuable receiver.
One of the first to greet Swayne yes
terday was Pitcher Jack Cull. The pair
were teammates last year for a while
oh the Trenton team. Swayne says that
Cull has everything, but a cold in his
arm last year caused him to be "tin
canned." He was young and eager to
make good, and went In and pitched his
head off against the Philadelphia Na
tionals a day after he had started train
ing. He did not allow a run the five
innings that he worked. Captain Mc
Allister had to bridle Cull several times
yesterday when he showed a propen
sity to cut loose and steam them over
the pan.
Unity Living Up to RipnOllou.
Catcher Cady has certainly been
living up to his reputation. He takes
a good healthy swing, meets the ball
squarely and away the pesky pellet
sails on a joy ride that entitles the
maker to a couple of extra cushions
every trip. Wyatt Lee says that Cady
resembles Charley Hemphill, the slug
ging Yankee outfielder, a great deal In
looks and actions. He is a clean-cut
youngster hailing from Galva, 111.,
which Is closely to Geneseo, where Joe
McGinnity was born.
Johnny Flater says that a seven
mile walk to and from work every day
and sawing down trees kept him In
pretty good condition during the win
Newark fans would be surprised to
bte how spry Hughey Hearne Is on his
pins. At roller skating, dancing and
the like he is as agile and frisky as
a chipmunk
“Talk about your Hlawathas,” sal!
Cy Parkin, speaking about Frank
Swayne, while the Tri-State recruit
was not present, "he never had any
thing on Swayne. You’ve read how the
old Indian boy used to shoot an ar
row and then sprint to the spot where
it was aimed and wait for it to ar
rive. This here boy hit the ball on a
line one day In Binghamton and he
went down so fast that the ball hit
him on the back of the head when
he slowed up to round first."
Bob Hall Is hitting and fielding ia
his old-time stride. Illness caused the
Baltimorean to fall off In hts work
last year, but he has been lining them
out to the suburban territory regu
The usual basketball practise was
held yesterday afternoon, followed by
a plunge Into the pool. The Indoor
game Is great for the wind.
It is probable that Sunday’s game
will have to be played on a skin dia
mond. The work of sodding the dia
mond was to have started Monday,
but the rain softened the ground.
Swayne Has a Lot to Say
About New Eastern
Larry Schlafly left Beach City for
Troy last Friday, according to Joe Ag
ler, and will see his old pals work
against the Philadelphia team next
Sunday. Larry and Joe have been toss
ing the pill about a bit. All of the
Tigers are pulling hard for Troy to
win the pennant. Hughey Hearne
makes his home there, and naturally
Is pulling hard for Larry to make
good. “If Albany and Troy are up In
the race there will be great rivalry,"
said Hughey, "and Larry will coin
money.” Bob Ganley and George
Browne, both former New York State
leaguers, share Hearne’s opinion.
Johnny Nee is already popular in the
Tiger camp, and the bunch are pulling
for him to make good. He will have no
easy time of it, as Bob Hall is in great
shape and is covering the keystone
ottoman like a major leaguer, but
Just the same Johnny, who is only 21
years old, seenm to be the kind of
fellow who is handy to have around.
He is a versatile chap and plays
basketball, football and baseball with
equal skill. For the past three years
he hag coached the Missouri University
baseball team In Columbus, Mo., acted
as second coach for the football team
and head coach for the basketball
quintets. He himself is a star basket
ball palyer. He was going good last
year until a brother of his was killed
In a railroad accident in Texas. The
shock threw him off his stride and he
did not do himself justice.
King, the Irvington boy. has a
brother who pitches for the Fort
■Wright team, and he U said to be a
George Boice has received an offer
from the All National semi-pro team
but has not accepted as yet.
It is possible that a game will be
played with the local team before the
week is over. McGlnnity will decide
when the game will be played after
seeing his men in action for the first
time this season today.

Charles Weeghman Expects to
Confer With Robisons
CHICAGO. March 30.
several restaurants In this city,
will go to Cleveland tonight,
where he has an appointment with
Mrs. Helen Hathaway Robison Britton
and Mrs. Sarah Carver Hathaway
Robison, her mother, in regard to the
transfer of the stock in the St. Louis
National League Club left them by the
will of the late M. Stanley Roblsoa.
It is understood that there has been
a price of 3350,000 set for the entire
control of the St. Louis team. Including
grounds and stands.
If Mr. Weeghman can Becure control
of the club and its chattels without
purchasing the grounds and stands he
will endeavor to do so. If there Is any
hitch in a proposition of this kind, he
says, he stands ready to purchase out
right the franchise, the club, the stands
and grounds.
"Yes, I am after the St. Louis Na
tional League team," declared Mr.
Weeghman last night. "I am willing
to go ahead and purchase the club and
everything appertaining thereto or am
willing merely to purchase the fran
chise and the members of the team and
lease the grounds.
“That is a matter that will come up
for consideration tomorrow, when I ex
pect to meet the heirs of the late St.
Louis magnate in Cleveland and enter
into negotiations to relieve them of
their holdings.”
ST. LOUIS. Mo.. March 30.—George
Stone, one time champion batter of the
American League, who since 1905 has
been considered a star on the local
American team, will soon pass down
Into tHe minors, having been sup
planted by Gus Williams. Waivers
have been secured on Stone from every
club in the American League, and the
former fleet outfielder will leave St.
Louis as soon as a place in the minors
is obtained for him.
\be Weighs in at 118 I *2 Pounds
and Says He Is as Strong and
Lively as Ever-Fans Ask Can
Champion Be Fit to Battle
W'ith Burns?
CAN Attell make 118 pounds ring
side and be strong enough to
stand off a youthful comer? On
the eve of the champion feather
weight's ten-round contest with
Frankie Burns at the National Sport
ing Club tomorrow night this question
is causing speculation wherever the
boxing fans gather. For the first time
In five years Attell is making weight.
He has invaded the lightweight class,
and sometimes the welterweight class,
and with success, but now he is taking
off at least four pounds in order to
comply with the conditions of his
match with Burns.
Attell weighed in yesterday at John
son's roadhouse at 118*4 pounds. He
boxed ten rounds with his sparring
partners and seemed as fast and as
strong as ever. He said he never felt
better. He has fully recovered from
the Injury he sustained in his bout
with Tommy Kilbane. He is confident
that he will be able to defeat Burns.
The members of the National Club
evidently anticipate the boxing treat
of the season when Attell and Burn#
meet. Manager O'Rourke says the de
mand for reservations Is unprecedented
and a record house Is expected.
One of the best cards that the match
maker has offered will be put on to
night, when Billy Sherman, the recog
nized naval lightweight champion,
meets Mike Stetson, pride of the lower
west side. New York, at the Long
Acre A. C.
The men are scheduled to
go ten rounds. In the other
ten-round event Andy Williams,
the chauffeurs' champion, who has met
and defeated some of the best boys
of his weight around New York, will
meet Phil O'Brien. There will also be
four four-round events. In which such
good local boys as Young Guarini, Sam
Lee, Young Willis, Young Joe Grim
and others will meet. There will also
be a wrestling match between Profes
sor Mundy and the Greek champion.
On Wednesday, April 5, Sailor Burke
will meet Jim Mitchen, the recognized
middleweight amateur champion, at the
Long Acre.
Tommy Kilbane, of Cleveland, and
Joe Goetz, of Pittsburg, fought ten
rounds to a draw at Cleveland, O., last
night in one of the roughest bouts
ever seen there.
Knockout Brown, aspirant for light
weight championship honors, is wear
ing a bandage around his head today
to cover up his left ear, which was se
riously bruised in a bout with his
brother Adam this week. An opera
tion on the injured member was found
necessary, and the ear will be perma
nently scarred as a result.
Brown has also been under treat
ment for the grip, and has been e*
vised to rest for five or six weeks.

In the twenty-round bout at Day
j ton, O., last night between Patsy
: Branntgaru of Pittsburg, and Charles
! Ooldman. of New York, the draw de
' cislon of Referee Roelm was not pop
ular with the audience, as the ma
jority thought Brannigan had won.
Earl Denning of Chicago, was
awarded the decision in the eleventh
round of what was to have been a 12
round bout with Danny Dunn, ot
In San Francisco tomorrow night Ad
Wolgast. the lightweight champion,
will be called upon to defend his title
