NEW PLAN OF PICKING STARS

. XEW TOnfC, Nov. 11-The Chalmers
trophy commission, composed of base
ball wrltei- from every city In the two
big leagues, evolved a system for picking
the two players of most value: to their
teams In their respective leagues which
left very little chance for the preference
or prejudice of any individual, but really
was a cum pot l to opinion of all the se
lectors. Each man picked the player
whom he considered moct valuable on
each team In both organizations. That
is to say, they each selected eight men
from each major league. The player who
headed a list was given eight points, the
econd seven and so on down to the
eighth man,- who was scored one point.
The points from the various lists were
then added and the man with the hlghost
total was placed first. Thus a player
who bad. two seconds would outpoint a
man who got a first and fourth. A prom
inent memher 'of the commission has
figured out an all-star base ball team
by this point system from the selections
When It Is considered that this Is the
composite, opinion' of a large' number of
trained critics of the game. Its value can
not be doubted. .Of course, this selection
would necessitate shifting either Jackson
or Schulte to left field, as they both or
dinarily play the right garden. Managers
were barred, which eliminated such men
as Clarke, Bresnahan, Dooln, Chance and
Chase. . A
Cree, Sheckarri and Mltoholl were the
1'urmera-up, In the outfield: Lajolo was
second,' to Merkle.as a choice for the
Initial sack; Doyle ran Collins close for
second; Lobert followed Baker for third;
Biwh was second choice at short; Thomas
end'Archer were the backstops next In
lino and Walsh. Gregg and Marquard
were the next highest ranking pltohers.
All ballots were eust before the opening
or me world s series, so the outcome of
the Athletics-Giants' games cut no fig
ure In the selections. Opinions may dif
fer as to Individual selections, but taken
as a whole this all-star team would be
hard to beat:

LONDON, Nov. lS.-Blnce II. It. Hilton
won the golf championship In America
the English papers have accused Ameri
can orowds at golf matches of lack of
Sportsmanship, being rowdy and bolster
us, and trying to rattle foreign players,
Mr. Hilton writes to the Westminster
Gasette to correct these delusions. II
''The crowds were well conducted; per
haps made a little too much noise to ba
ciulto In keeping with a golf match, but
this was due to tholr enthusiasm and
patriotism, " for they never did anything
with the slightest Intention of Interfering
with my chances of success.
"When the championship was over no
crowd could have given a player a more
enthusiastic reception than the American
trowd gave . to me at Apawamls. The
American, If more ' demonstrative, and
perhaps a good deal more Ignorant of the
game, and Us traditions, than the average
Urltt-her, certainly 'know howto'take
defeat as a sportsman quit as well as
the trotters on this aide.'
- "The reports I have heard of noisy, dis
graceful behavior of American spectators
are grossly unjust and unfair. As true
American golfers . are quite aware, the
crowd at their own meetings does not be
Uava itself with quite the same dignity
and restraint that Is to be found In our
better class crowds on this sldo. But
they are doing their utmost to educate
the masses to the custcms and traditions
vf the game as played on this side." '
Mr. HUton strongly advocates the adop
tion of the American system of using
megaphones to keep the crowd ott the
touroe, ar.4 says the crowd at Apawamls
was managed Infinitely better than most
of them over here.

NEW YOIIK, Nov. JS.-It has been
bruited about that we are In the midst
of another foreign Invasion of our wrest
ung neia. uiavonne Haklrvlch that ie
the awe-lnsprlng handle that preceded
th arrival of his huge bulk urt Amer
lean shores. "Champion Graeco-Roman
wrestler of Europe" Is the title flaunted
In the face of our grapplers,
Wonder what Is going to be foisted
upon the long-suffering public at this
time. Mahmout, Hiissane, SCbysxko, Hack
enschmldt all of them have proven first-
class comedians. Kacli caused a furor
of excitement ' upon his arrival. Each
exploded when It came to a showdown.
' Our esteemed contemporsry, Harry To
lok, has the, big Italian under his wing.
We well remember brother Harry's galla
vantlngs In the boxing game. Bo we are
not at all surprised by the announcement
that "Ralolevlcli has been chasing
Zbystko and Hackensehmldt for the last
three years." Funny how nobody hap
pened ever to have liejjrd of Ralclevlch,
The advance announcement continues
"this fellow hns won all the big tourna'
merits held during the last throe years
Including thone in Rome, Purls, London,
City of Mexico and Turin." Once more
fnnnv how nohodv ever heard of him.
But let us hope that Holslevlch "will
not be a "cheese," that he will bo able
to put up a real exhibition of wrestling
In event that he ever hooks up with
Clotch. If Is undeniable thnt there are
lots and lots of good wrestling fans In
tho country who lament 'tho paucity of
senulna ton-notch contests. Like other
sorts of American fans, they do not enjoy
simply welching) "a wrestling match."
Tliev want to see "R good wrestling
match." Ho 'let tie bopo that. the bUj
frame and huge muscles of Ralclevlch,
frbm fMsa, mean the revival of the good
old days when wrestling held Its place
among our most popular sports.
Frank Ootch seems to be satisfied with
things at home, Judging from the way In
which talk of his proposed world's tour
has died out. The big fellow, one of the
squarest and most popular champions
America ever owned, Is making hay while
the sun. shines, grabbing the kale that
lies In wait for him In this country.
Maybe he will go ahead with the foreign
thing later. Ootch Is one citampion wnum
we can depend on to not do a "Billy
Papke" abroad. A Jaunt by Ootch
through Kurope at this time would add
not a little to the prestige of Undo Sum
In the universal sporting world, as It 1"
a dead sure thing .that . the Humboldt
farmer would toss over with ease the
vaunted wonders of the continent.
The winter base ball league has opened
Its season with fanfare an bombast.
Here are some of the early canards; Tom
Lynch Is to be ousted from the presi
dency of the National league; each
American lekgue olub contributes $1,000
to Ty Cobb'g salary, in addition to what
he (eta from Detroit; John Montgomery
Ward Is secretly forming a players' pro.
teetlvo association and he Intends to af
filiate It with the American Federation
of Labor; Rube Waddell Is to be taken
back Into the big leagues from the Amer
lean association; Ban Johnson owns stook
lit threo American league clubs and two
National league clubs.
Pretty ' good start for the Ink slingers.
However, there are a tew oona "la
things to provide food for the fans. Fred
Clarke will hereafter manage the Pirates
from the bench and will give Vincent
Campbell, the fleet young St. Loulsun,
his Job In the outfield; Jimmy mcAiecr
la now a Boston American miinaw,
Clark Griffith will manage the Senators;
Harry Davls.will lead Cleveland; Jimmy
Callahan will pilot the White Sox. Good
material for "bugging bees" In that crop
One of the most closely watchnd men
In base bail next year win oe u"j
Davis, erstwhile first baseman of the
AtMletics. who will . take hold of the
Cleveland team where Htovall left off.
Davla will have fair material to work
with, but ho Is confronted with a "hoo
doo" of long duration. Jimmy MeAieer
had the Naps In 1900 and M01. 1 he t.t
he could do with them was sixth. Bill
Armour, with a remarkable array of
players, could land them no higher than
third In the three succeeding years. In
1905 Lajole took the helm. In the years
under him they finished firth, trilra.
fourth, second and slxtn. L.uca was inn
only thing that kept Cleveland from a
pennant In 1908. After larry came
Deacon Jim MoGulre. Under his leader
ship the Naps headed the second division
In 1910. After a few weeks of the 1911
svason hs became disgusted and threw
up the Job. 8tove.ll succeeded him In a
temporary capacity. Stovall Is the bard
luck man of the season. After running
the Napa up to almost within striking
distance of a pennant he was gently In
formed, of the fact that Xavls had been
contracted for as manager next year.
Btovall had worked his way Into great
popularity among the Cleveland base ball
fraternity. Now he has to step down and
out merely because Davis had been Prom
ised the job before Stovall haa a chance
to show his mettle. It will be Interesting
to see how the Cleveland fans receive
Davis who Is superseding a popular Idol.
One cannot help admiring the senti
ments of Mrs. Helen Hathaway Robinson
Britton, the first woman base ball mag
nate In history, who say In ryiiard to
the clamor of ISt. Louis fans: "We In
tend to see the Cardinals win a )ennant
first; a new grandstand can come lutar.
That la the right spirit. Mrs. tuition
proves herself a true sportswoman. Such
policies In back of the club should prove
a great help, to Roger Brennahan In
rounding out a winning team.
Still a little early to think about the
AU-Amerlcan foot ball team, but It's
a good bet Walter Camp picks his eleven
from the following:

NEW YORK, Nov. 18,-Now that "new"
foot ball has been mastered, the casualty
list Is so small that one needs a
microscope to read it. Foot ball as It Is
being- played this fall Is a game that
requires 73 per oent brains and 25 per cent
speed and brawn. And where brains rule
over beef In any gome naturally there is
lens chance for Injury.
Tha "new" game last season wasn't a
success, but solely becaune the big
elevens could not grasp tha situation.
With one season's work under .their
belts ,the coaches and players this year
were greatly benefited and from the open
ing day of practice took up the "new"
style of play.
And as a result there haven't been
over three or four deaths rsoorded this
tall. Just glance at tho following figures
and than you will appreciate what "new"
foot ball has accomplished:

This year w wll all answer unani
Injuries and deaths have been .greatly
lessened and the game has become a
sport where the minor college has nearly
as good a chance as the bigger one. The
"new" game has come to stay and is
right now as pvpu'.ur as that played when
brawn and weight alone were the essen
tial points of a player.
It begins to look as though the Carlisle
Indians are going to be represented In
the backtleld of the All-American eleven
this year, for James Thorpe, the Sac, and
Fox redskin, la making a wonderful
showing on the gridiron. Already a dosen
coaches have declared him the greatest
back that ever wore the moleskins.
Coach Wharton of Pennsylvania says
he no'er saw the Indian's equal. "Why,
he outclasses any backtleld man that
ever played the game."
Thorpe weighs about li& pounds and
stands six feet. Besides being one of the
greatest wing sklrters. he Is a hard line
smasher, and It la almoat impossible to
bring him to the ground. While not as
good a defensive man, he Is, neverthe-
les, a bearcat at locating the ball when

Wheu It was announced that Harvard
and Irlnceton were to renew tout ball
relations many floured that If the Tlgcrj
defeated the Crimson, the Cambridge In
stltutb.n of leurutng would probably
again break away. But the dope was
wrong. Instead, the recent victory of
the Tigers served the purpose of cement
ing relations between the undergraduate
bodies of the two universities.
Harvard proved a good loser, No team
ever showed better sportsmanship tban
did the Crimson eleven on the gridiron
and after the game.
rrinceton is to be congratulated on
the work of the team," said Captain Bob
r'leuer. "Tbe gam was oue of the hard
of Europe and says he hss learned enough
of the catch-as-catch-can game to toss
any grapplers In this country at the pres
ent time. Ralclevlch Is a mountain of
muscle and brawn, and . apparently the
est fought and one of tho best that has
been played In a long time. Neither team
used mean or low tactics, and there Is no
reason why the friendliest relations
should not continue."
Coach Percy Haughton of Harvard said:
"The best team won."
That surely was a sportsman's remark,
for to the writer, while not tailing any
credit away from Princeton, their touch
down looked very fluty. But for that one
play the Crimson would have' won. They
really played a better game than Prince
ton. There Is no getting away from that
fact. The goddess of fate and the Tigers'
keenness to take advantage of Harvard's
mistakes won the game for the Jungle
But at all events the outlook for 'a con
tinuation of Harvard-Princeton foot ball
relations Is distinctly bright. The under
graduates of both universities liked the
last game and want another one each
season. Princeton frankly admits a de
sire to continue the relations, and the
only source of opposition Is a certain
coterie of Harvard alumni, who opposed
the match for years.

SAN FRANCrscO. Nov. 18. That Aus
tralian Hugh Mcintosh Improved on his
original offers to Sam Langford, Perky
Flynn, Cyclone Johnny Thompson and
one or two more was made evident by
the feverish rush of these fighters to
connect with the Australian steamer at
Vancouver a couple of weeks ago.
That Mcintosh needed the services of
the American "pugs" badly was sug
gested by the fact that, if necessary,
the big-steamer would have been held, or
slowed down, in order to allow the bruis
ers to ret aboard.
The fighting situation In Sydney la
about as follows:
They are aa far into the summer as we
are Into the winter the seasons being op
poslle 'Mcintosh, ' ttho deserted' ' London
recently, contemplating a busy campaign
at his Rushcutter's Bay stadium.
"Mac," who received a greut welcome
when he returned lb Sydney, told his
friends thai: he had' arranged with all
the notables of the fighting guild to ap
pear In orthodox ring, contests at 'hl3
big roofless arena. Before leaving Eng
land "'Mac," with the help of an 'Ameri
can sgent, made ' contracts with the
champions find near-champlotiB of every
division, and it all tho men who promised
to take the trip had ,k-ept their words we
would have 'had to unearth Ham Prultt.
Beer Unholls, Percy "Cove, - Tanglefoot
McOovern and a few more to keep the
fun going at "this end.' '
But, after .Mcintosh- sailed for home,
the 'Frawrey law was passed and other
things cropped up to Interfere with the
Australian attraction First. Al Kauf
raan",decided not to go, then Flynn. They
dropped' away one by one. In fact. Even
Jack Johnson, on whose "good faith" In
the connection Mcintosh secured $25,000
Insurance from Lloyds ,of London, gave
out that he preferred retirement to a trip
across the ocean.
This latter was tha unklndeat cut of all,
as Mack expected to use tha champion
as a bellwether. First of all, each of the
transpacific pilgrims was to be) assured
a number of matches and tho chance of
a crack at. Johnson and the champion
ship was to be his If he worked his way
up to It.,
When Mcintosh began to start the
works at his summer stadium the only
new. arrival at his disposal was Sam
McVea... Sam was sent against Jack
Lester and Bill Lang' In turn and whipped
them both. ' Then the attuatlon became
desperate. The cable was brought' Into
requisition and the hurried flight to Van
couver of Langford, Perky 'and others
was the result.
It is understood that Langford has
been guaranteed six matches and that
similar terms have been made in the
case of Flynn. It will be easy enough
tor the head of Mcintosh's match making
bureau to scare up opponents for O.
Flynn, as there are quite a number of
second and third rate heavies around
Sydney who are fairly popular with the
patrons Of the sport? But In the case of

At the present time Bill Lang is ac
knowledged to be the best of the native
born Australians. Bill was defeated by
Sam Langford in London and by Jack
Lester and Sam McVea since his return
to Australia. There is reason for be
lieving that Lang Is on the down grade
physically. They have no other man fit
to take his place as an Australian repre
sentative. A few months ago It was predicted
that Bill Turner, known as the champion
of Tasmania, would defeat both Lang
ond. Lester, but Turner faded away. Not
so many weeks ago he went under In
the third round of a contest with Jack
Howard, a Sydney boxer with no pre
tensions to class, and now Turner's name
,1s never mentioned.
Jack Lester, who defeated Lang, haa
been defeated by Sam McVea, who
fought a twenty-round draw with Sam,
Langford In Park). Under the circum
stances it cannot be seen that the Syd
ney sports, fight hungry though they
may be, can be got to regard a Lang
ford-Lester bout as an event of promise.
A newly arrived Australian spotting man
says he does not see where Sam Land
lord's six fights are to aome from unless
he fights McVea six times.
They have the repeating habit, though.
In Australia, and Mcintosh, who knows
his business thoroughly, ' will handlo
Langford so that a certain degree of In
terest will attach to each of Sam's ap
pearances. First of all If Lang can ba
patched up, he w ill, - In all probability
be tro'ted out as an opponent for Lang
ford. Mcintosh, who has always been a
strong believer In Bill's fighting prowess,
and who held that Lang wss turning
the tables On Langford In Londonwhen
the unfortunate foul caused the Austral
Ian to be disqualified, will contrive to
make the result of ' this match seem
doubtful. ' .
When Langford defeats Lang, as ho
surely will, Lester, tho man who defeated
Lang, will be signed with the "Tar Baby'
and after that is all over, there will
be little excuse for delaying the day ot
reckoning between the two Sams McVea
If Langford Insists on his six matches,
Cyclone Johnny Thompson may oblige.
Tho Cyclone went on the same steamer
with Langford,' and anyone who' knows
Johnny knows that the size or his op
ponent does not bother him at all. Ho
would Justf as soon tackle Langford aa
Packy r McFarland. '
It may be that 'Dave Smith, tho Aus
tralian middleweight champion, will bo
sent to tho front as a customer for Lang,
ford,-but no matter how the six match
program Is carried through, tho grand
finale will bo furnished by two negroes.
And If Johnson still adheres to his no
tions about retirement, Mcintosh will, of
course advertise the McVea-Langford
go as a fight for the world's championship.
