Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 1918 4 t THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY . HERALD PAGE THREE'M �__11 4 "BRINGING UP FATHER" 1 * G. McM anus �-t 6' F H * 1 rl 4 "1 � t - l / r. . -V* �J. * 'A 1 - - f ' t r - in t Fielder Jones Alone of Y Federal League Bpsses Phil Harrison May Not Arrive Till Week-end; Training There j - in Big Leagues Tinker and the Other Pilots of the Gilmore Organization in Minor Leagues-However, Several of the Magnates Are Still in Fast Company Though it had been confidently expected that Phil Harrison would arrive in Lethbridge on Thursday he failed to put in an appearance and the fans are getting anxious. It would appear now that Harrison may not arrive till the weekend, evidently having taken the tip that Ross was an opponent worthy of his best, and he is staying in Chicago where he can work out to the very best advantage. Although the seats will not be put on sale until after Harrison's arrival, hundreds of fans are asking for reservations, many coming from as far as Bow Island. "When Harrison does appear there will be a general scramble. Meanwhile Ross is working out every afternoon over the Plaza, and is getting in the pink of condition. He will make the 165 pound weight without the least trouble and will be strong at that weight. Along about a year since the well known Federal league was about to curt up and crawl beneath the table, those who pursue the national pastime for a livelihood and tor 1 the entertainment they therein derive were all net up' over the dissolution of the Third Major League, being well chosen with a high sense of typographical fitness. The Feds faded au/1 the public became undeluded, if there is such a word in1 the computation of the late Noah Webster. And what happened to the managers who piloted the eight clubs in the Gilmore. circuit? The answer 1b easy. Here is the list of Federal bosses as of two yeara since;' Chicago-Joseph Tinker. Kansas City-George Stovall. St. Louis-Fielder Jones. Pittsburg-Rebel Oaken. Brooklyn-Lee Magee. Newark-Bill McKechnle, Buffalo-Larry Schafly. Baltimore-Otto Knabe. ' Whore Are They Today? There, you have them. These were the men selected by the club owners to perform the,miracle of a modern Moses to lead the Feds out of the wilderness of outlaw striving into the promised land' of regular third leagueism. uAnd where are they today;? " Oj\e 'phe-p-Flelder Jones-remains as bq'sfl^of'a^balli'.club in or out of the, major leagues. He piloted the Browns after Phil Ball and associates were permitted to acquire the American league club as a bop for allowing the Federal to die a graceful death. Joe Tinker is a manager in the minors because he Interested Packer Wilson in the Columbus club and got himself elected .president thereof.  Shifted to Reds Bill McKechnie was at Cincinnati where he did a bit of infielding till a bad-hopping grounder broke his, right thumb. Ijee Magee was traded.to the Browns by the Yanks because he hit a whole lot less, than .250. He no longer is esteemed even as a ordinarily good outfielder. Rebel Oakes hooked on with Jim McGill ,.as xiianager of the Denver team in the Western league. He piloted that outfit iu 191G and was reengaged in 1917, but was yanked to Indianapolis as a private to assist in grasping the American association flag. Otto Knabe went to the Cubs as chief shouter and passed into the International league as an utility player.

His passing elicit-ed this comment from the San Francisco ..Call, "While Stovall failed to accomplish anything during the 1917 scramble, fcho fault was far from being all hla. Stovall was handicapped by the worst aggregation of ball players ever put under a manager and ' no effort was made to help him build up a winning team." The other managers just simply passed out, excepting Tinker, whose work,With the Cuba was su�h that the newspapermen, at least, felt the natural prejudice which followed a so-called "outlaw" worked to his detriment. Few J-ive to Success To be sure, Hal Chase, Bennie Kauff, Eddie Roush and a few other Federal league performers starred in baseball last year, but they were few and far between. It has been the history, of every deceased outlaw league" that the competent workers were received back from whence they came with open arms because of their ability to perform a valuable ser-! vice. But it's passing strange that two years after the demise of the Feds you can count on one hand the 1 worthies thereof identified actively with the pastime. Of course, Charles Weeghman, Phil'ball and a few others endure, but they have money and the dollar shouts loudly almost anywhere.
