CHICAGO, Dec. 28. Joseph Tinker,
former manager of the Cincinnati Na
tional league- bone ball club and Mordccal
Brown, Cincinnati pitcher, has signed
three year contracts witn tho Federal
league. Tinker will manago the Chicago
club and Urown will bo manager of tho
St. Louis club.
George Stovall, formerly of Cleveland,
and last year manager of tho St. Loula

tho Kansas City club next year. Larry
Schlafley, with the Jersey City club of tho
International league, will manage tho Buf

Cincinnati player, but out of baso ball
for several years, will go to Indianapolis
as manager. The franchise recently voted

It was reported that Tinker was to re
ceive J3G.O0O for three years' service.
Tinker, who waa deposed by Cincinnati,
was sold to tho -Brooklyn club for $25,100,
It being stipulated that ho was to re
celvo $10,000 of this amount in addition to
his salary. Tinker had announced that
ho would not go to the Federal leaguo
unless he was assured that his Income
would bo larger than that provided by
tho Brooklyn deal. Tinker's wllllnsrness
to leave organized base ball was increased
by his desire to live In Chicago, where
ho has business Interests. An effort by
Charles V. Murphy, owner of the Chi
cago National league club, to buy him re
ceived Tinker's support, but when it be
came known that tho Brooklyn deal
would block Tinker's chanco of playing
with the Cubs he entered his negotiations
with the Federals.
CJetM In IllKh Flwnres.
Brooklyn's offer of 25,000 for Tinker's
services, said to bo tho largest sum ever
paid for a ball player, was contingent
upon tho former Cincinnati manager's
accepting the agreement.
Cleveland's place In tho new Federal
league was forfeited owing to the failure
of that city to guarantee a suitable ball
park. Barney Hepburn, a member of the
Canadian parliament, it was announced,
Is the owner of tho Toronto club.
Tinker and Brown are among the old'
est and best known players In organized
base ball. Tinker Joined the Chicago club
twelve years ago and won his way to
high regard as a shortstop. A year ago
he was signed by Cincinnati as manager.
Brown also Bpent many years with the
Chicago club as a pitcher. He went with
Tinker to Cincinnati.
The cities represented In the Federal
league are: Toronto, Buffalo, Baltimore,
Pittsburgh, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas
City and Indianapolis.

CINCINNATI, Dec. 2S.-Pre!dent Au-
gust Herrmann of the Cincinnati National
league team was rust notified of the
jumping of Mordecat Brown to the Fed
eral league by the Associated Press. Mr.
Herrmann was surprised, but declined to
make any comment.
As president of the National base ball
commission he also declined to say
whother the action of Tinker and Brown
had placed the ball players outside the
pale of organized base ball.

clnnatt club when August Herrmann sold
him to Brooklyn. There Is no doubt
about that, because when Tinker signed
his 1913 contract with Cincinnati, he gave
Cincinnati an option for his services In
1914. Brooklyn now owns that option by
vlrtuo of the deal which President Charles
II, Hobbs put through with August Herr
mann early this month. Moreover, tho
National league has promulgated the deal,
formally recognizing Tinker as Brooklyn's
Surprise to Brooklyn Heads.
The news that Tinker had signed with
tho Federal league came as a surprise to
tho officers of tho Brooklyn club, Presi

Miortstop, who thus rejected a $10,000
bonus in addition to what VIco President
McKeovcr describes tonight as a better
contract offered Tinker than any ho had
ever signed before as a player. McICeover
intimated that Tinker had been offered
more than $3,000 a year for three years
in addition to the $10,000 bonus.
The Brooklyn club explained Its prof
fered terms In a letter to Tinker last
Tuesday, according to McKtever, and no
reply was received from the shortstop.
McKeever said Tinker gavo no Intima
tion to tho club that he planned to join
the Federal league.
"Wo havo treated Tinker in a regular
business way and In a gentlemanly way,"
said McKeever, "and ho has treated us
unfairly. Wo assume that he Is a mem
