If a great sport like turf, calculated to with- th stand, and by its history able to withstand great misfortunes, were dependent upon any one man or set of men for Us maintenance, its inspiration or its popularity, then, in deed, would the blow, that be fell it in the deaths of the late James K. Kceuc, of New Vork, and .Major Fo.shall A. Daingerfield, of Kentucky, have been severe to the point 01 lauuity. No two figures in the world of racing and breeding had been mure conspicuous. Related as they were, personalty as well as in their activities which gave to the world, year after year, the greatest bands of winners the Occident had ever seen, the loss of both by the hand of the. great Presiding Steward in less than a week came at a time when no man whose efforts were available to the revival of the sport :ould be missed.

BY Mcl-EAN KENNEDY. Edward Siever was hauled out of tho "bushes" by Manager Stalling of tho Detroit Americans In the season of 1900, Dragged out of the undergrowth was this young- hurler. This chap who propelled a baseball from the portsldu, and could llaeh it across the plate with amazing speed, and control so line that batters didn't triilu or linger at the plate In hopes oi st-'ttiiiK free transportation first, blazed his way to major league, fame by a. routo that fairly sparkled with sensational pitching leats. With the London. Ontario, club In 18U, lid Sievvr made his real start in proies.siutiat baseball. In Imb tlrst few Barnes that Icaguo the "breaks' didn't come his way. . A slight lunvh of stago fright was the cause of his- losing a few games in earlier attempts. However, when fc.dward got that left whip going right, 'twas the batters turn to have stage fright. With terrific speed and deadly control ho swept through the league, winning 1-1 games of 20, most all of Ids wins coming on the home stretch. This brilliant work of Slevor's helped London to cinch the pennant, and 'twas this pitching that attracted tho attention of the Detroit management. Han Grand Heoord, Ed KIcvlt' graduated frdm this little league with a grand record, a great pitching arm and a physique as strong as a young lion. In his tlrst ganiR in Detroit, in tho spring of 1200. the fans were impressed by this southpaw's speed and accuracy. In his attempt, which was against (he White Sox of Chicago, he showed control that was remarkable for a youngster just breaking in, and especially for a left-bunder. While he lost his tlrst game by a score of S to 2, yet he only had one pitching error, and that was passing a man to tlrst. In th.; l games he pitched in that season for Detroit ho just sent 11 men to first by the free route, not making a wild pitch, and hitting but throe nn-ii. Toward the close of the season, his work showed a vast improvement, winning live of tlx- istst six games, a grand finish for t he young southpaw. Siever s e.mtrpl of tho ball was really wonderful. Ho established a reputation of being the truest lefthander in tho business. His command or the sphere brings to mind the maMerly work of that king of all piteher.s-, Charles Rad bourne. Tin recorded that the "Old Moss" could plare a common popbottle on the home plate, and from the pitchers position knock it down four limn in live attempts. May He ExagBcrated. There may be a slight tlngo of laundry idiielng to this story, but It illustrates tho almost perfect cMitiniand that "Had" possessed. Siever could waste three balls on a hatter anil when that individual u'V'.f "n a a chance to walk, r-ddie would flash the next three neross. making the fellow hit or fan. In 1001 the husky portsldcr had a very good year, being especially effeetlvo against Cleveland, -winning five Of the six' Irnmiiu ka. i. nurled against, tho Naps. Selvcrs started In 1902 to eclipse all previous records. He began hv shuttling out the White Sox, 'hoidinjr them to a couple of scratch sln-files. and up to August he had registered four shutout games. The eleventh day of August was the turning point in Kd Siever eareor. On that date !. ....-j ,111 that never-to-be-forgotten pitch-:i:)g duel with the great.
