Funeral of Base Ball Maemate Held
HEYDLER IS HIS SUCCESSOR
erretarr of National League la Pro
mated to Be Its President
Many Oamee are Post
poaed for Faneral.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. t-The body of
Carry Clay Pulliam. late president of the
National league, was brought back this
afternoon to Louisville, the city he callel
"home" and from which he departed twelve
years ago to begin the rapid climb which
landed him at the top In the base ball
world. The body arrived In Louisville
shortly after 11 o'clock In charge of Mr.
Pulliam's brother-in-law. C. W. Cain of
Nashville; John Heydler, Mr. Pulliam's
dose friend and acting president of the
National league and a guard of honor com
poeed of club owners and men Influential
In the affairs of the American and Na
tional leeLguea, the American association
and other base ball organization. The
coffin was taken to the chapel of an under
taking establishment, there to be viewed
by a great number of friends.
Among the honorary pallbearers were
B. B. Johnson, president of the American
league; John A. Heydler, secretary of the
National league; John E. Bruce, secretary
of the National base ball commission;
President Dreyfuss of the Pittsburg club,
President Stanley Roblson of the St. Louis
club. President John Dovey of the Boston
club. President Ebbetts of the Brooklyn
club, President William Shettsllne of the
Philadelphia club and a number of men
prominent In Louisville affairs.
It was a day of half-masted flags and
deserted grounds In memory of Mr. Pul
liam In the more important cities where
the national game Is known. The Southern
league carried Its flags half furled and
President Kavanaugh requested that
no games be played.
Instead magnates, players and friends of
Mr. Pulliam gathered at his grave.
Heydler Succeeds Pulliam.
LOUISVILLE. Ky.. Aug. 2. Not more
than an hour after Harry C. Pulliam, lata
president of the National league, had been
burled in Cave Hill cemetery, this city,
John Heydler of Cincinnati, secretary of
the league, had been chosen president In
his place, at a special meeting of the di
rectors. There was some feeling, of which Presi
dent Charles W. Murphy of the Chicago
team was spokesman, that It was Indeli
cate to name Mr. Pulliam's successor at
this time, but the league's Immediate
need of a qualified head was such that
the directors decided upon an Immediate
Besides electing Mr. Heydler, who Is to
fill Mr. Pulliam's unexpired term, the di
rectors concerned themselves only with
paying tribute to Mr. Pulliam. They desig
nated the remainder of his salary as presi
dent during 1909 to his estate, and they
appointed Garry Herrmann of Cincinnati,
Barney Dreyfus of Pittsburg and C. W.
Murphy as a committee to select and have
erected In Cave Hill a monument to Pul
In addition to this they provided that
the players In the National league shall
wear crepe for thirty days. The meeting
was attended by four of the five league
directors Murphy, Dreyfus. Ebbets of
Brooklyn and John Dovey of Boston. Garry
Herrmann, the absentee, will reach Cin
cinnati tomorrow from the west.
President Hcydler's Career.
NEW YORK, Aug. 2. John Arnold
Heydler, the new 'president of the National
league, has been Its secretary since 1902.
He was bom In La Fargeville, N. T., on
July 10, 1869. He learned the printing trade
In Rochester and later went to Washing
ton, where ne was employed by the govern
ment. For three years Mr. Heydler waa one of
the substitute umpires of the National
league. While sporting editor of a Wash
ington paper he helped the American
league gain a foothold In that city. He
Is universally popular with club owners,
managers and players.
Respect for Pollara.
Bat and ball were laid aside by thirty
professional base ball clubs today out of
respect to the memory of Harry C. Pul
liam, president of the National league, who
was buried at Louisville, Ky., this after
nonn. This Is the first time in base ball
history, it is said, that all clubs of the
National and American leagues simultan
eously refrained from their sport.
The New York State league was the only
minor organization to call all of Its games,
but two games of the Eastern league,
those at Rochester and Buffalo, were post

Keene's Affliction, played from 16 to 1 to
8 to 1. won the Saratoga handicap, one
mils and a quarter, the opening of the
Saratoga meeting today. The victory was
anticipated by the betting on the Keene

The meeting opened under favorable con
ditions. The crowd numbered 8.000 per
son, much above expectations for a Mon
day. The Saratoga handicap, the feature, drew
out a poor lot of horses. There were two
withdrawals and King's Daughter was
added. She opened at 8 to L but was
quickly played down to 18 to B, while the
insiders from the Keene atsble managed
to get blK odds against Affliction. Ala
bama went back to 4 to 1. The start was
good, with Maltble the first to show. Go
ing around the first turn Affliction raced
into the lead, followed by King's Daugh
ter. The latter dashed In the lead In the
ruu down the back stretch. She set a fast
pace and took a two lengths lead. At the
far turn she still led by two lengths but
Martin pulled her over to the rail and, sav
ing many lengths, managed to get an even
turn with the leaders In the stretch.
King's Daughter began to tire and Afflic
tion, running strong, outgamed her and
won by three-quarters of a length, King's
Daughter second and Olsmbala third.

a berth as first mate of a seaworthy old
craft at Des Moines.
"One night we was beating along on a
light breese with a fair spread of can

that even the lookout was sleepy, when
suddenly there came a call of passengers at
the gangway. I kicked up the cabin boy,

bulge. "I don't believe It,' says he, but he
takes the pen and writes his name and
what do you think It was, J. L. Buchanan,
"And if this Is not true." says BUI, "I
hope Davy Jones gets me this night." No
body said a word and the silence got on
"Here, you hearties." roars Bill, "If you
don't believe It, one of those four men is
living In Omaha today and remembers It."
But the silence was unbroken, save by an
occasional bark from the dog watch.
