MINOR MANAGER You Can Take iVlike Donlin's Word For It-He Ought To Know Now York, July 20.-A managerial berth In the minor leagues Is no sinecure. Take Mike Donlin's word, for it. Mike contends that in order to he a first-class minor tongue pilot one must have the patience of Job, the hypndtic powers of Herb Flint, and the mental nnd physical ability to play every role from president of the club to third assistant groundkeoper. . As Donlln has tried his hand at managing a minor league club, iio ought to1 know something about It. He was appointed manager of the Memphis club of the Southern association Inst winter, and he announced nt the time that he had high hopes of making good." But last winter Mike didn't know 'anything about the managerial gamo in the bushes. Ho served as manager of Memphis until about May 15, when he was handed his release. lie says that his troubles began when tho club lost something like 15 games by tone run. Then the umpires commenced to mako life miserable for Mike, who is a hard losor, and flnally"he was blamed t6K everything that went wrong. Cartoons ridiculing the Memphis club were) published In a number of rival cities. Mike got the blame for tHm, lie says, and he is satisfied hot.' that a minor league managerial berth is nothing more nor less than a.delusion and a rmaro. 'Hut Mlke.'a case is only ono Incident. Dozens of minor league man- agers have experienced the same troubles that befell Donlln, and dozens of future managers In the minors will experience them. The minor league manager has a hundred and one burdens on his shoulders. He generally has to deal with a group of stockholders, and he has to please them individually and collectively. He must turn out a winner or stand for a continual panning from stockholders and fans. He must go out and scout for hi* own players, tor the minors do not hire ivory hunters to assist the manager, He' must do at least 60 per cont. of tho thinking" for his ball club on the field, and if the club loses a hard game through bonohead work the manager gets the blame whether he Is at fault or not. Just as soon as a -minor league manager gets a good club together along comes some big league club and. he sees his winning combination broken up through sales or the draft. He must go out and dig up players to fill the riijonx in those who are taken away, and If he falls to find talent as good as ho has lost they say he is slipping. The manager who makes good must turn out a winner and sell 'several stars to the hig league. -Of he does this he is _ doing no more than the stockholders expect of him, and he seldom gets his just share of credit. Many a manager in,the minors wins a pennant one year only to have his head taken off If be falls to repeat the next season. His Job is as'far removed front that of the big league manager as the Atlantic is from the Pacific, (or the major leaguer has scouts to help htm build up a winner, and he can always hold onto his stars until they, outlive their usefulness. / As Donlon says-if you want to take the joy out of a guy's life make him manager at a bush league ball club. And It you want to dish out credit to any one In baseball, slip It to the minor league pilot who makeB good. ' Tomorrow evening's baseball game will give the fans of tho city an opportunity to sec tho Turin team in action for the first time this season. ' The Saturday evening fixture has become a popular form of amusement for the big crowds that visit tho city from all parts of the south on that day. With a hall game and the best show of the season at the Majestic, there is sure to be a bumper crowd in the city tomorrow evening. Turin is not an unknown quantity oven though they have not played here before this season Noble will likely be in the box for them. Noble is some pitcher when he is going right. Three or four years ago he had tho pleasure of shutting Lethbridge out without a hit in a big game at Macleod when he pitched for that town. Charley Oreen and Bowers have already played with Lethbridge this year. The rest of their line-up is plenty good. Snow will very likely do the hurling for Lethbridge. He has recovered from the jolt he got the other night at tho New Dayton game. The reason for his aviation in the last two innings was the collision in which ho came out Becond best at first base when he was thrown heavily over the first baseman's leg in a close decision nt the first station. He lit. on his right elbow and had nothing on the ball for tho rest of the game. / The game will start at 0.15 sharp. bout, Talt caught Johnny fair on the jaw with a vicious right jab which dropped him for the count ol' tliiee. Johnny arose, however, only to be met with a fusillade of rights and lefts to the face, which sent him over the ring against, the ropes. Mere again Talt showered rights and lefts to the face until Johnny was sprawled on the ropes and helpless. Referee Maxwell then stopped the bout to save O'Leary from further punishment. It was a technical knockout and Tait's fight every minute of the five rounds. O'Leary Was Angry Toward the middle of the fifth round Tait began to force the fight even harder, and a vicious right jab, that travelled fully 12 inches to O'Leary'a jaw, brought, the ex-champion's hands to his knees. CKLeary endeavored |: defend himself from a fusllade of blows, and was forced across the ring. Tait again rained short, hard jabs to the face and head, and brought O'-Leary's guard down a second time. Referee Young Maxwell stopped the bout, holding up the champion's hand in sjg-nal of victory. O'Leary, realizing then what had happened, sent up a shout of anger, and squared away to fight, but he finally understood what It all meant and walked away dejectedly to his corner. The champion weighed in at 133, while O'Leary tipped the beam at 13fi. In addition to the main bout there were two preliminaries, Young Gunboat Smith and Billy Fouracres, microbe weight boxers, which was declared a draw; and the second bout, between Jack Morrison, local Greek boxer, and J. Johnson, "tho fighting fireman," of the local department, was won by a shade by Morrison. a pint bottle, and yet you can put 50 cents' worth of cigar into 3 PROMOTOR BLUNTS sold at a quarter." S. DAVIS & SONS, LIMITED, MONTREAL. BAKER IS EXONERATED Chicago, July 20-J. Franklin Ba-kejv third baseman with the Now York Americans, was exonerated of alleged tampering charges by President Johnson of the American league. Baker in a letter to the league executive denied that he had attempted to induce Pitcher Allen Sothoron of tho St. Louis club to desert organized baseball. J Defeated Champion in the Final Game of Series 7 to a- Won in the Ninth Champion, July 17.-In the filial game of the Champion baseball tournament the Champion team lost to Stavely by a store of 7-5. Billy Smith was In the box with Slier on third base. Both teams made a score in the first inning. Both teams hnd rooters there with Champion a bit the stronger. An interesting game was looked forward to. Good plays were made at times by both teams,'but poor ball seemed to be the order of the day. The final inning started with the score a tie, 5-5, and Stavely to bat. The first man up fanned. Three very bad throws from third base to first gave Stavely both runs and encouragement. The way some of the Champion players went after the ball it was fortunate Stavely oniy made two runs. Tho two runs, however, proved too much for Champion, only one man getting to first base in their half of the inning. A very uninteresting game ended in Stavely's favor. They have come out on top in both tournaments held at Champion, on May 24, and in the present one. LEIFER SOLD TO YANKEES Butte, Mont., July 20-Elmer Leif-er. outfielder and pitcher of the Butte Northwestern league club, has been sold to the New York American league team. The price was not announced. Letter will finish the season, with Butte and report to the Yankees in the spring. AVIATOR INJURED. Toronto, July 19.-Flight Lieut. B. A.
