Princeton goes into the footbal
game at the Palmer Stadium againsi
Harvard today the favorite, bul
whether she will come out victorlom
would be a most difficult matter tc
tell. Those who look into tha future
in such things freely predict succesi
for the Tigers, but all admit that the
margin will be very small. In some
ways Princeton sticks out, but lr
other respects Harvard shows to ad
vintage. The game is the biggest ol
the year, and the winner Is sure tc
have tho best chance of tho cham
pionship. Both the Tigers and the
t'rlmson are to meet Yale, and both
should triumph. The contest will bf
witnessed, it Is expected, by aboul
40,000 persons, and Princeton will be
proud Indeed to carry off the honors
of the day. She has a great team,
but she will have to play great foot
ball to beat her Crimson rival.
Princeton never had a more populai
captain than Frank Glick, the fellow
who is leading the Tigers In their big
battle against Harvard today. The
most complimentary tribute paid to
Glick by Princeton men Is that he Is
the heart of the team. Glick is a
crackerjack quarterback, but, best of
all, ho has that gift of Inspiring
others. He is gifted with the skill of
producing that vital spark necessary
to a football eleven's success—the
thing they call team spirit. It is his
tory now how Glick took hold of the
Tiger machine in the final period of
the Yale game last year, and the
manner In which he handled the
Tigers and produced results was a
revelation. Today he adds to his
reputation or falls fighting valiantly
—it all depends on the fate of the
Tigers—but all the signs indicate that
Click’s diligence and ability as a
leader will be rewarded with the suc
cess he has labored so hard to pro
duce for old Nassau.
James A. Gilmore, president of the
Federal league, assured me over the
telephone yesterday afternoon that his
organization was just as strong as
It ever was and Just as far away from
peace as it was the first day the
league was started. He said in un
perturbed tones that he personally
had always been for peace with or
ganized baseball; but peace, he em
phasized, on a fifty-fifty basis. When
pressed for something absolute and
definite on the situation, Mr. Gilmore,
in most reassuring tones, said:
"Don't worry; you have a nice ball
grounds over in Newark and you have
a good ball club, and the Feds will be
playing ball there next year the same
as last year. Not a thing has been
done toward a settlement of peace.
When anything is about to happen
you will know as soon as the next
one. Just be patient. The Feds will
be the Feds whether or no.”
Surely, in the light of all the talk
about Messrs. Sinclair and Weegh
man and Walker and Gwinner and
Ball buying into the National League,
Mr. Gilmore's assurance that the
Feds are not to be gobbled up or
ihuntod aside must be accepted as
the most reliable information obtain
able at the present time. To bring
about peace will require more than a
few short conferences between two or
three baseball men. Millions of dol
lars are involved. The Federal
Leggucrs have ball parks on their
hands, and they are not going to shut
them up and pay out more money
Into another proposition that hasn't
been much of a winner. Talk Is
cheap, and talk of peace doesn't cost
a cent. As Mr. Sinclair says, some
people don’t care Ifow they spend
other people's money.
Peace or no peace, Ban Johnson,
president of the American League,
will never be given much attention
by the Federal Leaguers. Although
a noted "outlaw” himself and the
founder of the American League,
Johnson has presumed to pass un
favorable judgment on the Federal
League and to even declare that
James A. Gilmore, its head, would
never be considered even if peace ar
rangements were possible. Johnson
takes himself as a sort of dictator
in baseball. He has had much about
his own way because of the weakness
of the National League, but he will
find more fighting blood in the Fed
eral League than he bargained for.
Sinclair will give him a battle and
If R. B. Ward had only lived John
son’s defeat would be assured. The
czar of baseball is not much when
he is up against the real goods. Hia
victories over the National League
are nothing to blow about.
With anything like an even break
President Gilmore would beat Pres!
dent Johnson at anything. He hai
beaten him so far, and he has gottei
Ban's "goat” on more than one occa
sion. Gilmore’s declaration, "What’i
the mater with baseball?—Too mucl
Johnson,” has made Ban the boob o
the national game. Johnson has at
tacked Gilmore at every opportunity
but he has never yet scored a run
Ollmore says a whole bookful abou
Johnson in the following fow well
chosen remarks:
"In order to be in a position to ale
in perpetuating the national game 01
the high plane it deserves it will b<
necessary for organized haseball to di
some housecleaning. The public n.
longer accepts Ban Johnson as i
power. True, he still holds forth a
dictator for organized baseball, bu
he has plunged the magnates Inti
debt and the game into a condltioi
from which it cannot be aroused b;
bluffing and bullying. In less than i
year the baseball war has change!
from one of organized basebal
against the independents to a colossa
bluff on the part of Johnson and :
very few magnates in an attempt t
keep the Federal League from reach
Ing the position that is Inevitable
Johnson’s pride has been hurt, and 1
cannot be restored. He has failed ii
•very war undertaking, and the fac
that many of his former backers are
no longer able or willing to contribute
cash to the Johnson vanity fund is
evidence ot the real conditions in
baseball. Killing the Federal League
Is beyond JohAson even If he had tha
solid support of organized baseball.”
That will be all for Mr. Johnson
for a while. Let him not bury ills
dead beforehand. He will find a live
and worthy foeman in the president
of the Federal League.
Mr. Sinclair is sick and tired of
denying stories about the Feds giv
ing up the ship. His latest assurance
is that the Feds will have a team in
New York next year. That is good
enough for me. He is also getting
ready for a lively season in New York
when ball time comes around. P. T.
Powers, Mr. Sinclair's partner, laughs
at the idea of the Feds giving up the
"How foolish that would be,” Mr.
Powers says', "when we have the
battle won.”
There is no use talking, the loss of
R. B. Ward must have made a dif
ference. George S. Ward, who is now
in control of the affairs in Brooklyn,
hasn't had much to say. When he
speaks we will know where he stands.
If he decides to fight and stick with
q i . ,..t .. ...
Slncrtiir, the Feds may be counted on
as winners. In any event they are
stilj full of fight.
Billy Kelly, the •'lighting Chauf

more consideration in the lightweight
division, along with Jack Coyne,
Joe Cassidy, Young Gradwell, Bert
Papp, Kid Boynton and Terry Adams.
Kelly was a visitor this morning, and

anybody In his set. He said he w'as

should be addressed.
After blowing his horn as to what
he could do to Jack Coyne If he ever
got him in a ring, Kid Boonton, with
a match with Coyne assurred, hasn’t
made good as yet with his forfeit.
Coyne's money is up and has been up.
Boonton’s $50 was posted, but he took
i$ down. One duy Boonton is going
to whip the woHd and all the people
In it. The next day he is sick of the
fighting game and is going to retire.
His match with Coyne depends on

Boston’s Red Sox had no less than
seven tidy winning streaks last sea
I son, the Carrlgati machine once put
ting together eight victories in a row
and on six other occasions running oft
seven triumphs in sequence. That
Jack Barry’s acquisition was a mas
ter stroke on the part of Magnate
Lannin and Manager Carrigan Is evi
denced by the fact that six of Boston's
winning streaks came after he joined
the new champs, and that the team
played .712 ball when he wAs a mem
ber of it, as against a .600 brand when
he wasn’t.
Detroit halted two of Boston’s win
ning streaks, St. Jjouis two, New
York one, Chicago one and Washing
ton one. The first drive of the Red
Sox started on June 21 and ended on
June 28. The Carrigans, in that time,
won eight, a tie coming in between
the seventh and eighth triumph.
Washington, with Boehling pitching
against Shore, Collins, Pennock and
Mays, stopped this string of trlumiphs
on June 28, 6 to 5. The Red Sox
pitchers were not working very well
at this time, for they yielded thirty
five runs in the 'nine games, the tie
included. However, in the next win
ning streak of the Carrigans, July 3
to 7. Bill's boxinen gave only six runs
in the seven contests, four of their
victories being shutouts. The Tigers
halted this rush of the Larininites on
July 9, when Coveleskie and Cavet
downed, Ruth, Mays and Gregg, IB
to 4.
Between July 18 and 24 the Red Sox
won seven more In a row, the Browns
frustrating them on the last-named
date when they tried to run their
string of victories up to eight. Carl
Wellman, Tigers’ nemesis, was St.
Louis’s pitcher, and he conquered
Shore and Wood, 3 to 2.
On August 20 the Carrigans started
another drive that brought them
seven successes in sequence, Detroit
having the honor of stopping this
drive on August 26. Pause and Cove
leski pitched for the Tigers, who had
to go twelve innings before the Red
■Sox took the count on the basis of
7 to 6. Foster and Leonard were Bos
ton's gunners.
Between August 28 and September

and September 17 and 23 the Red Sox

cricket, while the Englishman dis
misses baseball as merely "glorified
rounders.” There was a time, how
ever, when cricket was as popular on
this side of the Atlantic as in Great
Britain, and when a cricket contest
would attract a much bigger crowd
than a baseball game. ThiH is, in a
way. the birthday of cricket as an
American pastime, as it was on Oc
tober 22, 1838, that the first cricket
match for money was played In
America. The cricket teams of New
York and Brooklyn opposed each
other on the field of the latter club,
and played for J400 a side.
At that period the game of round-1
ers was popular, and already the
sport was beginning to develop Into
, the "glorified rounders” now known
as baseball. In Philadelphia "town
ball” was played by the Olympic
' Club, the first team of its kind in
America. In New York and New
England distinctive games somewhat
resembling baseball were in process
of birth, and In 1846 baseball came
ilnto being. Even before that Major
General Abner Doubleday had origin
ated a game at Cooperstown, N. Y.,
which was afterward called “Base
I Ball.”
Up to half a century ago, how
ever, baseball had but a small fol
lowing among adults, and it was us
ually played by youngsters, by whom
It was often called "Two Old Cat,”
"Three Old Cat,'1 and "Town Ball.”
In the meantime cricket flourished,
and had a large following of “fang”
all over the United States and Cana
da. An encyclopedia published in 1859
does not mention baseball, while It
describes cricket as "the favorite
outdoor game of Americans, both of
town and country.”
i Professionalism flourished in crick
I et long before it was thought of In
, baseball. Most of the early stars of
1 the diamond were also cricketers. In
I 1874, when the Boston and Athletic
l clubs toured England and Ireland,
they played cricket as well as base
ball. They defeated the famous
■ Marylebone Club, the .Sheffields, the
. Manchesters, and the All-Irelands in
. Dublin, winning all their contests
except one, which was drawn. Mc
1 Bride, the Athletic pitcher, was a
l fine bowler, and so were the three
Wright brother*. It was not until
1878, when the National League was
launched, that baseball finally tri
umphed over cricket In the affec
tions of the American sporting pub

Jersey lightweight. If Bootiton allowt
this Coyne bout to fall through h<
might just as well retire, j
Jim Savage is a foolish boy. He
called ofT his bout with Tom Mc
Mahon, the ■'Bearcat," scheduled fot
last night at the American Sporting
Club, and McMahon was easily beaten
by Dan Porky Flynn, who took Jim's
place. Savage declared the bout with
McMahon off because of trouble with
Martin Julian, hla manager. Jim has
split with Julian and taken up with
Tex O'Rourke. Why the change is no
one’s business, perhaps, but Julian
certainly made good for Savage. Be
sides, Jim will have to fight once
moie for Julian, and he might have
met McMahon, whom he could have
beaten, and have It over with. Now,
it is probable that Jack Dillon will be
Savage's opponent. Of course, if that
match comes about there is nothing to
prevent Jim from getting sick at the
opportune time.
Charley Welnert is still on a lark,
and when he comes back to earth ho
Is going to tho country to prepare
himself for another battle. He has
been promised a fight with Jim Coffey,
the "Dublin Olant." This bout will
prove one of two things. It will show
whether Welnert Is through at the
ago of twenty as a possibility, or
whether Coffey has a chance at all
to become the first pugilist of the
land. At the present time both Woi
nert and Coffey are In the scrap heap,
as It were. In a bout between them
the winner would come in for quite
a little consideration. As Welnert
has the better chance to make good,
he is naturally seeking tho match.
Coffey doesn’t want to fight, but
Billy Qlbson, his manager, Is trying
to show him where It is best for his
good to come out and take a chance
against Welnert, and he may do so.
Welnert's defeat at the hands of
Jack Dillon and the knockout of Cof
fey by Frank Moran have put the two
foremost llmellghters in the back
ground. Moran Is taking his victory
as the crowning glory of his career
and he is working his reputation for
everything there Is In It. He Is not
talking fight and he is doing pretty
well on the stage. When he gets ready
to battle again he will probably pick
out some "half-baked plant.” As to
Dillon, he is a fighter who wants to
fight. He will meet anybody. It is
not his disposition to save up a repu
tation. He wants to sell It—sell It to
anyone who can beat him In the ring.
Dillon would fight Welnert again to
morrow. He doesn't care. Ho says
he rather likes Charley because It was
in the bout with Welnert that ne
drew down more money than he had
over seen before. Jack is thinking tc
come over here to live in the hope
that Welnert might decide to fight
him again. Dillon isn’t pnrtlculni
when the match Is made. Ha needs
the money.
Talking about Weinert and his
escapades, an admirer writes:
J. P. N.:
Your recent remarks about Charlie
Welnert show that you are his friend,
and T am glad that you are. But 1
am not pleased at the nature of your
sympathy for him. While 1 appre
ciate the fact that our friends are
those who know all about us, but like
us anyway, still I dislike to see any
of Charlie's friends helping him main
tain a false pride In himself—and
especially when that so-called pride
is the very thing that, I believe, is
ruining him.
Monday night I saw the fight at
the Garden and I gloried In the first
four rounds. They seemed to belle
the reports that Charlie had been
making a fool of himself. But when
I saw the fifth round and the rounds
that followed, I experienced some
thing akin t6 despair. To myself I
rebuked Charlie over and over again.
I wondered if, In his distress, he was
getting any comfort from the realiza
tion that tho pretty girls and the
good fellows who pretended to be his
friends had sapped away his strengh.
Yes, I wondered, and I am writing
this with the hope that he will see
It and feel how empty "good times”
really are.
You say Charlie is proud. Nature
has given him a good body and a
clever head. Should he be proud of
that, or should he be grateful for It?
Can he take any credit for it him
self? He is a young man and nature
Is attempting to develop and strength
en her good work—apd he la not giv
ing nature a chance, much less help
ing her. Why doesn’t ho forget hla
pride and get down to work?
I know that you realize all this and
woulif do everything In your power to
see Charlie succeed. And I am not
criticising your friendship. My point
Is merely this: When somebody seta
up a yell that Charlie Is not doing
right, Charlie resents It, or tries to
excuse or Justify himself, and I do
i not like to see you taking sides with
lilm and calling his critics Jealous.
, When he Is "hitting the high places”
i he is Injuring only himself, and the
i sooner he realizes It the better. The
. people who take the trouble to crltl
1 else him are trying to make him da
right; It really won’t make any ma
terial difference to them whether ha
does or not. With best wishes, 1 am
very truly yours.
Tho young man himself will tell you

Dillon is in a bad boat, as far a:
the championship is concerned
Though ho might be able to whip thi
world. It Isn’t likely that he will eve
get the chance. He is so small tha
a match with Jess Willard would b
looked upon as a joke. Besides, Dll
Ion doesn’t really figure. He Is bull
on lines that give him an advantage
over bigger and cleverer men, and hi
style of fighting Is Impressive, HI
performance appears to be more des
perate than it really is. He has i
capacity for punishment and he Is a
aggressive as a bull, but, after all, h
is only human. He was one tlra
fellow in the fourth round of his bon
with Weinert, and in the tenth roum
he was not much stronger than hi
opponent. Ill perfect condition Wcl
nert would have beaten Dillon in
every round.
Tom Jone*, manager of Jess Wil
llrd, has practically selected Fred
Fulton as the champion's next op
ponent. Fulton, who Is a giant, beat
Terry Kellar In the fourth round of
their light last' night, and today in 1
| the West he Is hailed as the coming '
! man. Previous to the bout with Ke!- '
lar Fulton had first call on Willard, (
but now he Is assured of the mutch. (
Willard has arranged to engage In |
three bouts In New Orleans, and he t
will very likely defend his champion- J
ship when he gets through with them. j[
* After he beats Fulton he will take t
on some other dub, but he^wlll finally ®
have to meet Frank Moran, who is *
a gamester and a general, but who is ;
hardly a match for the giant Wil- I

Anxious to Have It Replace
Bull Fights, Which Make
Nations Brutal.
Mexico, for five years a country of
battle, blood and gambling, Is to be
come the happy winter hunting
grounds for baseball players and
boxers, If a certain Senor Carranza
makes good on h1s talk. After Car
ranza obtained for his provisional
government, the official recognition of
the United States, he made a little
talk in which he told of his plans for
regenerated Mexico, His consuls along
the border have amplified his talk '
a bit and no* we have a few of the
In the first place the gambling, no
torious cabarets and other undesir
able plates of the border cities are
to go "into discard just as soon as
Carranza's men get absolute control.
The poolroom at Juarez Is (loomed. So
are the half dozen or more cabarets, ,
maintained for the edification of tour
ists. And the casinos and keno halls
are to be seen no more. Yes, Senor (
Carranza has even threatened to
abolish racetrack betting, but the
Jockey Club Juarez officials are of the ,
opinion that their franchise, granted ,
by the Diaz government, will still !
hold water and are going ahead with
their plans for the winter meeting,
which Is scheduled to open at Juarez |
across from BI1 Paso, Texas, Thanks
giving day.
The weekly bullfights are to be dis
continued. Carranza thinks that the
Civil War has furnished the Mexl- 1
cans with all the flowing blood they j
will want to see for many years to '
come. 1
Baseball is to be the national pas
time of Mexico In future. It Is even !
hinted that a well-known baseball 1
promoter, a former manager of big 1
league clubs, is to be Induced to make 1
hls headquarters south of the Rio ’
Grande and take charge of the Intro- 1
duction of the great American game. ■
John J. McCloskey, at one time man
ager of the St. Louis Cardinals, Is
the man the Mexicans want and
"Honest John” is giving a lot of at
tention to their talk.
Baseball as a government conces
sions the plan, with "Honest John”
at the helm. McCloskey went to El
Paso last winter and organized the
ltlo Orande Association, a class D cir
cuit. Managers Hester and Reed, of
Phoenix and Albuquerque, respec
tively, blew the lid off the salary
limit and the league gave up the
ghost in July, but only after It had
firmly established organized baseball
