LEAGUE Talk of Tenet- Quitting-He is Having Troubles of His Own New York, July 11.--John K. Toner's troubles as president of the .National league-and he has had his share-will be n big stumbling block in the path of the club owners who have" hopes that he will change his decision- to retire In December. The McGiaw Incident, without doubt, had much to do with bringing about tho decision of the former governor of Pennsylvania to refuse to bo a candidate for re-election, and this case, coupled with many little squabbles in the course of his regime, brought an early statement regarding his plans. Because of the fact that repudiation of quotations has become a new-fad in baseball, there is still a chance that Tener will think better of his plan to retire before December rolls around. But tit the present time he "is positively not a candidate and will not bo one." * Others Had Trouble Mr. Tener Is not tho ouly man who has found the cares of office as president of the mother league a weighty burden. Ho is the eighth president of the league and at least two of Ills' predecessors figured as the centro of internal strife and turmoil that, kept them In hot water much of the time. Harry Pullum, who was head of the league from 1903 to 1909, is said to have had his hands lull,, whilo Tom Lynch, who served from 1910 to 1913 put in four stormy year* iii which a number of incidents are still frosh in the memories ot baseball men. With Governor Tener's announcement that he will retire, the baseball prognosttcators are busying themselves by casting about tor a man to take his place, and the consensus ot opinion favors Edward G. Barrow, present head of the International league. v Barrow was re-elected by the club owners of his league last white* tor a term ot five years. His work as head of' the league: has been all that could have been asked. Had it not been for his efforts ,ln keeping the league together during the base* ball war it would have fce&ri disband* ,ed, or at least would have hit the) shoals so bard that the owners woujft have had to suspend operations .time, �= ' ^ ^-J^g If If ;
