I had secured an option of grounds both in Brooklyn an new York City but i could t get the necessary backing. The latter part of january. I Wen to Toronto in an Effort to straighten out affairs there. I did t like the Toronto situation but the time for Tolje opening of the season was Drair or near and it seemed to be to onto or nothing. Looked hopeless. Be i was in Toronto and just a a time when it seemed that the Toronto situation was hopeless and i was feeling mighty Blue about the matter i was introduced by a Mutual Friend o Robert b. Ward the new work banker. To got to discuss lne baseball and i told Ward How Tous i was to get into greater mow Sork with a team although it never dawned on at the time that a would come in with us. The next Day when i met want almost dazed by _ Gumore i la go into the Federal league with you. I la Back a team in. Greater new York Well you might know How de lighted i was. I raced Back to Chi Cago took care of a few details from hat end and then hustled to now Sork where i again met or. Ward. The option i had secured on the old Brooklyn Ball Park was almost up. But we hustled matters through and exercised that option just a few hours ahead of its expiring time. That s the history of How capital was interested. The 19h season will be our first season As a major league Organiza Lon. But Well show that we Hove he goods. And when the 1915 sea son comes around the fans will find hat we will have As Many Slars in our ranks As the american Anil Naonal leagues. Well get the play contract expire at the end of the 1914 because Well out bid the organized people. Past two months have been mighty strenuous for All those con in the fight the federals have made. But it has furnished us a lot of fun and pleasure and we re mighty glad we got into ii. Thi the first real big business fight of life and i find that i like fighting. And so i la keep it up we Are not anxious about going into organized baseball. We can stand out alone and win and make Money. So what a the advantage of becoming n t keen about this Federal Wue As i am. Since i took charge of the Federal affairs i have been compelled to make three trips to new York three to Toronto one to Pittsburg two to Kansas City one to St. Louis and two to Buffalo most of time while in Chicago has been spent in.

He s something Over Sis feet tall weighs around 19e and seems to be made up of Bone muscle and Energy. Yet looking Only at. His face h4 e presents a appearance. My appearance the lines of smooth face Are Al most Boyish eyes Are kindly Ani gentle and wears spectacles that further soften has looks and almost make one lose sight of powerful j Law. Frank g. Menks. W Bat Beirer it s a matter of record that undertakers supported. Johnson poorly. It is a matter of comment during the on and off seasons of baseball that certain team s Bat harder and held better certain pitchers than they do behind others and it would naturally be assumed that the major league hurler who emerges from a season with the greatest total of victories to credit would be the Man who had obtained the finest on the offence and defense according to Ernest Lantgen. Inspection of the records therefore should reveal the fact thai Walter Johnson of the Washl nylons the Man whom the Chalmers jury of newspaper experts voted the player most valuable to Hon team had a great number of runs procured for by associates no ought also to be reasonable supposed to have Given nearly air tight support so that he could live led the held the senators neither heavily nor fielded very accurately when their Star Artill Erist was Labouring at least they did t in the 29 com plete games he pitched 23 of which were victories and 6 of which were defeats.

Whom Many fans would like to see oppose John son in the world s series was furnished with an average of four runs per game by the glands or 1.21 More than Johnson received from the nationals. An Odd thing about big six a showing in the Complete games he pitched was that the opposition made eight More hits than did the giants but 44 fewer runs. An Artill Erist who had just cause for complaint about the weak Ting behind was Reb Russell of the White sox. He was furnished with an average of 3.15 tallies per conflict and frequently had to deny adversaries a run in order to pull through a Winner. The Phillies did not heavily behind their Star Grover Cleveland Alexander getting or in each combat Only a Tri fling More average of runs than the sox supplied to Kussell. When Nap Hucker twirled the superba were not in the Fence breaking class Hough once they did make 20 hits behind can Gregg got an average of 4.30 runs per game from the Ivaus Al Demarce an average of 5.08. From Rie giants Joe Wood an average of 5.50 from the red sox Eddie Plank an average of from the White elephants and Bert Humphries an of 6.46 from the cubs.
