the charges made by President Charles

and dissipation among the Cuba. The

In denouncing the statements made by
the Chicago dub's executive.
Chance Is still confined in the pri

a result of the operation for the re-
moral of a blood clot. He heard of
the charges yesterday. Propped up in
bed and heavily bandaged. Chance's
Indignation gave him strength to dic
tate the appended reply:
"If Mr. Dreyfuss or Mr. Murphy or
anybody else says that my team lost
the pennant In 15kiS on account of
drinking, he Is a liar. If anybody says
that the Cubs ever lost for that rea

Hermann, president of the Cincinnati
Reds and chairman of the national
baseball commission, has joined the
father of Bill Sweeney, second base
man of the Boston Nationals, in the
Sweeney Medicine company, which
was Incorporated yesterday. Herr
mann is one of the incorporators of
Philadelphia, Sept. 27. President
Horace Fogei has a new idea. Horace
vants to employ pitchers on the per
centage basis, paying them so much
per game no game, no pay. The
Fhillies' president conceived the idea
after he had figured that it had cost
him on an average of J88 per game
for the few games pitched by George
Chalmers during the present season.
Under the new system the youngsters
would be the highest priced players
in the league, as Fogel works his re
cruits until they are dead tired.

Knighthood For Women.
It la not at all well known that
knighthood has constantly been con
ferred upon women. Many English
ladles received the accolade, and many
more were members of such knightly
orders as the Garter and St. John.
When Mary Cholmondeley, "the bold
lady of Cheshire." was knighted by
Elizabeth for "her valiant address"
on the queen taking command at the
threatened invasion by Spain, did sha
know that a whole city of Spanish wo
men, the gallant women of Tortosa,
had been knighted for saving that city
from the Moors? Mary and Elizabeth
had both been knighted nt their coro
nation, but bj the time Anne, tho
second Mary and Victoria ascended
the throne it had been quite forgotten
that, according to English luw nnd
use. a woman who filled a man's office
