ople thought Mike Donlln was bluffing;,
ii he wasn't; and aa Matty la a fellow
vho aeldom leaps before he takes a look
it looks like curtains for him this fall and
the passing- of a great athlete Into the
marts of trade.
Matty accidentally dropped thta Informa
tion and when pressed for particulars ad
mitted that his career In base ball Is draw
ing; to a close. For two years ha and a
former college mate, now In tha employ of
a big railroad concern, have been working
on a manufacturing project, and both' are
about ready to atrlke out for themselves,
Matty will Invest quite a sum, as ha has
laid by and Increased tha aavlngs of years
of big salaries. Ha says this Is the right
l me to take a chance, and If the enter
prise does not pan out as he anticipates
he can return to basa ball.
The business which will claim Matty's
time and money la tha production of creo
sote railroad ties, and ha and hla ntt.,f

where tha tlea will be Subjected to the

on the ground floor on a number pf big
railroad contracts In Canada. These ties
are big savings In railroads and can be
manufactured .cheaply enough to Insure a
big profit If the business can be located
near big lumber tracts and contracts can
-e executed. Matty's partner has the ex
perlence and tha capital la assured. Both
Matty and his partner are practical fores
ters, and both expect to give their entire
attention to the business.
May Kama Owl Salary.
The New York Base Ball club will go
a long way to avoid tha lose of so valu
able an aaset as tha great pitcher, who
has drawn tlrousands of dollars to the gate
In New York and other cities. Matty In
sists that this Is not a matter of aalary,
and he will not allow sentiment to atand
In the way. He has never kicked up a
fuss over salary and ha haa never made
a habit of disclosing his hand until he
was ready to play It. So, now he la ready
to go ahead In hla new venture.
"Big Six," la not only a good pitcher, but
he haa a long head. Outside of base ball
ha la a shrewd fellow with an aptitude for
figures, excellent Judgment, and a readi
ness to take a chance. In tha years that
,ne has been with the Glanta he has Judic
iously Inveated hla money and can write
' hla check for $50,000, If not mora. Fur
thermore, he Is one who la confident of hla
ability to run thla aum up many times
Basa ball has laid tha foundation for
many fortunes, fur example, those of A.
O. Spalding and Al Reach, and Matty
thinks he's capable of carving out a good
living from this world without playing
"I have pitched for the Clients nearly
ten years," saU the big fellow, "anil that
Is a long time to stay In base ball and
still he a winner. I realise that past per
formances do not get a ball player any
thing, and that when the Inevitable break
comes he Is soon cast aside and forgotten.
I do not Intend to let those evil days over
take me. I might go along next year, and
several more years, perhsps, but the eni
Is Inevitable. If I stuck to the ftnlsh I
might not be able to close with such a
good opportunity as this one. I have to
look out for myself and I am willing to
take a chance. It would be a matter of
only a few seasons anyhow, and I may aa
well take time by the forelock.
"I wouldn't If I didn't think It would
pay me better than base ball. Tha money
may not be there right away, of course,
and It la possible that further delay may
be advisable and that I will stick for an
other year, but tha thing la bound to pay
better than base ball If wa can swing It,
and If our present plans develop aa we
anticipate, I will not ba with the Giants
Body Blew i Gtaata.
Matty doea not care to go Into any
further partlculara of tha venture, but
he la not a fellow given to Idle talk, and
so what he says must ba seriously, re
garded. If ha qulta It surely will be a
body blow to the Giants. McOraw can
pick up any quantity of pitchers, but he
probably will never get another Mathew-
son. It takes years to develop them and
they are plucked at tha rata of one In
about every ten years.
It will be difficult to Imagine a deal at
tha polo grounds without "Big Six." He
seems aa much of a fixture aa the
atands and field, and tha fane have come
to regard him as a permanent Institution.
For years the pitching staff has been
built around him, and sometimes ne was
nearly the whole staff. He has been the
hlssest factor In keeping tha Giants in
tha six National league pennant races.
Take out his victories and tha Giants
would scarcely have finished In the first
itviatnn this rear. He won a world s
championship almost unaided. McOraw
haa a lot of good youngsters, but It
would reaulre more than one season to
get over the loss of Matty.
Matty has drawn a big salary for sev
eral years, and he deserved every penny
of It. It Is understood that ha never
signs mora than a one-year contract He
enters. Into a new agreement each spring
and ha never haa been compelled to use
holdup tactics, as the club has appre
ciated his services In a substantial way.
Ha will have to Ignore the reaerve clause,
of course, but he will not ba compelled
to repudiate any actual contract.
In the yeara that he has been with tha
club Matty has given faithful service. He
haa never asked to leave the team at any
time except when necessity compelled it.
Hla contract of recent yeara provided that
he was not to pitch Sunday games. This
he Insisted on, because most exhibition
games are played on Sunday, and the club,
therefore, cannot call on him for ex
hibition gamea except In tha spring. He
was 29 years old last August and Is still
a young man, as business men go, but old
In base ball. Some of his money has been
Invested in paying stocks, but he haa
scattered his holdings so that financial
calamity could not overtake him, and has
a lot of cash on deposit In various New
York banks and trust companies.
our balL It wss a contest at which the
white man was no adept and. to be brief,
was purely Indian. It required both prow
ess and phvilciue
The prevailing Idea In this, as well aa In
other countries Is that the Indian Is a
perfect athlete. Stamina, speed and prow
ess are supposed to be the msln com
ponents of his makeup. And, generally
speaking, this Is true. But there Is one
athletic contest at which the aborigine has
not proved himself the equal of the white
man. Base ball does not claim as many
Indian ball tossers aa might be expected.
The descendants of the original Inhabitants
of the North American continent play the
game, but for some unknown reason few
of them develop Into big league material.
The Giants, however, appear to be intent
on cornering what few native sons there
are In the game. With the acquisition of
Big Chief Jack Meyers last fall Manager
McGraw got a sample of tha Indian aa a
ball player and he found the result pleas
ing. So when Scout Billy Lush Informed
the leader of the Polo ground forcea that
another Indian waa cutting thlnga up In
tha Ohio State league thla season, and
that he looked good. McGraw Immediately
drafted John Bull Williams from the Mar
Thla mesne that the Glanta will start the
season next year with two of tha four
full-blooded Indiana now making a busi
ness of the national pastime. Williams Is
full blood Oneida and lives In a small
aettlement Id northwest Wisconsin. Futher-
more, he comes to this city with a reputa
tion for being an advocate of strict train
ing, the simple and outdoor life, which, It
will be agreed, Is most Joyous news.
John Bull played in 130 games and was
the third best batter In tha Ohio State
league, hitting for an average of .297. Of
the 142 hits ha made alx were home runs,
eight three baggera and twenty-two
doubles. Nor Is batting his only asset, ac

NEW YORK, Oct. . The cut in the
Vanderbilt cup circuit as provided for in
the petition of the Motor Cups company
to the Nassau county supervisors for the
use of highways Involved Is most welcome
to followers of the automobile racing game.
The fact that the revival of the great road
classlo which will be staged on October 30,
will be run over a circuit almost half the
distance of last year's course gives promise
of the big machines streaking by much
oftener than was possible on the longer
After a motor car race contest has been
under way for an hour or so cars are bound
to drop out Something Is almost certain
to happen that will greatly reduce the field.
Engines break down under the terrific me
cnanlcal strain; a tire "blowout' may
cause a disastrous skid, parts of the ma
chlnery may give out there are a hundred
things conspiring to take machinery out
of tha race. On tha long circuits, when the
finish hour draws near, It is often ten
minutes before a car will appear. Conae
quently interest In the race is bound to
But auch promises not to be the case In
the Vanderbilt Tha new courae la 12.64
miles In circumference. This means that
the cars will pass tha atanda almost as
frequently as was tha case at the Lowell
meet during last Labor day week. Of
this 12.64 miles of roadway less than half
Is Motor Park highway. Tha Long Island
roada that will be used measure 7.49 miles,
The new oourse will run down the Old
Country road to the cut-off leading across
to tha Motor Parkway at Meadow Brook
lodge. Thence it leads up the Motor Park
way past last year's grand atand to the
Massapequa lodge. Thence a turn win be
made, the course completing the quadri

The Vanderbilt Cup race, has been set
for twenty-two lapa of the circuit. This
will rhake tha distance 278 OS miles. The
other two events which will be held on
October 30 In conjunction with the Vander
bilt will very probably be designated as
t1?e Wheatley Hills and the Massapequa.
The former race will call for fifteen cir
cuits of tha raceway. The Massapequa
will be contested ten times around the
course, or a distance of 126.40 miles.
Motorists who have pone over the re
vised course state It will be satisfactory In
every respect Tha roads chosen outside
of the Motor Parkway are said to be very
fast Of course, tha Parkway stretches
will give no trouble. Last year, although
many drivers claimed that they mode
faster time on the country roads than
over the specially constructed motor boule
vard, the Parkway was satisfactory, and
the same should be the case this month.

tion is expected dally, and upon Us re
