The action of the league In raising a war fund of 100,000 to Induce players to break their contracts with the American League has created a sensation, and there will be some lively doings within the next few days.

There was a scattering of the club owners today and It is believed that the most desperate efforts will be made to win back the old stars. With the championship season opening In less than two weeks, the magnates and their agents have no time to lose and for weeks to come the American Leaguers will get little sleep. The policy of reprisal is believed to have been decided upon before the split occurred In the National League last December. Some things heretofore unex-plalnable are now made clear by the National's action. Time and again he has assured his friends that the Phillies would be a much better team than was expected, but as the weeks rolled by there was nothing to justify Shettsline's faith In the Immediate future except the vague rumors that wouldn't down that certain members of last year's Philadelphia National League team who were reported to have jumped would not be found with the American this spring.

In addition, a well-known baseball man has several times told the writer recently: "There'll be lots doing before the season opens." Certain it Is that agents of the National are now in the American's camps, and the failure of Treasurer Billings of Boston. and Treasurer Stanley Robinson, of St. jouis, to attend the meeting here has given risf to the belief that these men have been at work this week with the American's stars. It is reported that one of the arguments to be used to get the players to jump is that the new contracts will be almost barren of conditions. There will be no equivacol clauses, such as 10 days notice of release, an option on a man's service for two or three years, etc.

Instead, It Is understood the player wili be asked to merely sign a paper in which he pledges himself to give the National League his best services for 1902 for a sum of mony larger than these men ever dreamed of receiving. The National League broke up the Brotherhood with a war fund and they are confident that that success will now be repeated by similar methods. It is a positive fact that the star players of Connie Mack's Athletic Club have been approached by National League agents during the past few days and all have been made flattering offers. Among these were Third Baseman Lave Cross, who listeneded to the flattering. tales of the agents.

Clever Manager Loses AH But Three of Original Team. Brooklyn. April "Whatever the) Ideas of Manager Hanlon may be regarding the chances of the Brooklyn team this sea- son. he will have considerable, opportunity to contemplate on the vicissitudes of base ball and its players when he compares his present force with the famous team of 1899, which walked away with the pennant with little effort. Of the 21 players who will represent Brooklyn this year only three will recall to Manager Hanlon the great galaxy of stars that added to his fame as the greatest manager of them all.

That was when Hanlon first came to Brooklyn from Baltimore, bringing with him the pick of. the Orioles, to amalgamate with the best that Brooklyn could produce at that time. In that famous aggregation were Kel-ley, Jennings. Keeler, Jones, Dahlen, Far-rell, McGuire, Daly. Anderson, Dunn, Casey, Kennedy, Hughes, McJames and Teaser.

There were a few "lesser lights, but they had little to do with winning the championship. The three players still with Brooklyn are Keeler, Dahlen and Farrell. The others are well distributed throughout the American -League and National' League, principally the American, and all have lost not a whit of their reputation as players. Only four of them were released In the usual course of vents Jennings, now captain of the Phillies: Kennedy, with New York; Dunn, with Baltimore; Casey, with Detroit, Hnghes is still available and McJames Is dead. The others were all deserters, so to speak, violating their contracts with the National League.

Fielder Jones was the first to jump. He cast his lot with the Chicago White Stockings. Joe Yeager and John Anderson were supposed to return to Brooklyn, after being farmed out to Detroit and Milwaukee, respectively, as per agreement, but they refused. Kelley has jumped to Baltimore. -Daly to Chicago and McGuire to Detroit, and Sheckard to Baltimore.

Hanlon is still ambitious to shine as the boss manager and anticipates developing out of this season's material an aggregation that will equal if not eclipse the famous three winners of Baltimore. He has a strong nucleus from what remains over from last year and the newcomers are promising. For "several weeks Lecver was manager -captain, first batsman star pitcher for the Pensacola team.

American Lensne Champs Like national Pennant Winners. Excelsior Springs, April 5. Soma amateur bookmaking was the result of a report circulated about the hotel to tho effect that a Brooklyn bookmaker was offering 2 to 1 against the White Sox and even money against Pittsburg in their respective races. Some of the more enthusiastic players have written to the East for confirmation of the report, with the intention of placing a little bet on both teams of champs. The discussion in the making of their own book brought out all kinds of expressions from the White Box.

He Is also interested In the trolley roads here snd has large other business Interests. The park is visited by many persons ta r5at, delight in watching uiBuurscn training. This coming week will be a busy one for the Pirates.

They will put on the finishing touches to their training, and the practice will be devoted mainly to what each player needs most in his respective position on the diamond. Ths first exhibition game showed whene soms Improvement could be made, and the games this week with the Little Rock Club, which arrived here today, Is expected to perfect what the Pirates are after the best possible practice and training to play champion ball from the time the first ball is pitched In two weeks until the close of the season next fall. The Little Rock Club will practice on the same ground as the champion Pirates, and the games that have been arranged will likely be intensely exciting and Interesting. Conroy naturally is the chief attraction just now, not only for the champions themselves, but for the spectators who dally watch the club training. Thus fat-he has not disappointed anvbody.

Clark seems pleased with his initial work, and he Is truly putting up good ball. "Wid" is graceful, quick as a flash and apparently has a good hitting eye, although hs has not been fairly tried out In the matter of batting as yet. He has the confidence of the other Pirates and that counts for a great deal.

If the Detroit Club, which relies for Its title on an agreement made last summer, is Justified In retaining McGraw, who repudiated it and signed a regular contract with the Brooklyn Club, what right has 1 the Boston American League Club to Winters, Parent and Dougherty, who entered into an agreement to play with the Cincinnati Club? It is a poor rule that will not work both ways. Sporting News.

Says Hugh Fullerton: "Jf Griffith can handle Davis, Mertes and Garvin, he will win laurels as a manager. I. predict that the first time Davis borrows a bunch of dollars of Mertes Cone of his tricks), and forgets to pay It back, there will be a ruction in the club that, will keep even Comlskey guessing." The Boston' newspaper correspondents who have been at Thomasville speak very highly of the Boston Nationals and predict that the club has pennant possibilities. Patsy Donovan may try to make an outfielder of Pitcher O'Neill. The Spalding campaign proved an ex-pensve little luxury.

The award of the contract for the league ball was made on a strictly business basis. The Spalding bid was the best, and he gives the National League 4O0 dozen balls at 51,000 year, and he got a five-year contract on those terms the best the National ever had on that important Item. Still the compliments come. The New Tork Telegram says: "The refusal of -W. C.

Temple to take up the duties of league president- was felt keenly by the club owners, who regretted that he could not find it -possible to accept the office. Mr. Temple is a natural leader and would have filled the position in a manner that would have reflected a great deal of credit upon the organization. He knows the ins and outs of baseball thoroughly, and it needs a man of that nature to administer ths affairs of the organization Ths National League may succeed at soms future time in inducing W. C.
