DAY ONCE HIGHEST MAGNATE
Founder of New York Giants Now
Only Drawing a Salary.
I REMAINED LOYAL TO LEAGUE
In Fight with New York Brother

(hlus o Ntiind by Hla
NEW YORK, July 25. Once the richest
and most powerful magnate in the Na
tional league, John 11. Day, founder of
the New York Baso Ball club, which has
controlled the Giants since US3, now draws
a small salary for supervising the turn
stile at the Polo grounds. Mr. Duy'a
fortune, made In 18S8 and 1889, when tha
Giants won two world's championships
from the St Louis Browns and the
Brooklyn, respectively, was swept away !
In vainly fighting the Brotherhood revolt
of 18S0. He sacrificed all to remain loyal
to the National league which, without his
allegiance, would have been crushed In
mldscason. In fact, Mr. Day refused a
halt Interest in the Now York Brother
hood club, together with a 223,000 salary
to servo as president
The story of Mr. Day's ruin Is an old
one, but his wonderful faith tn the ball
players who throw him down never has
been told. At tho suggestion of James
Mutrlo Mr. Day organized tho old Metro
politans, who won tho American associa
tion championship In 1SS4, He leased the
Polo grounds, then located at Fifth
avenue and One Hundred and Seven
teenth street. Aa tho National
league was the parent body, Day and
Mutrle soon applied for a franchise
to operate a New York club. The
team was nicknamed the Giants In 18S7
because tho players Included big men
Buck Ewlng, Roger Connor, Tim Keefe,
Jim O'Rourke, Mike Blattory and others.
Bis KarnlnaT for Year.
During that season the New York club
made $100,000, while In 1SS8 Mr. Day's
profits were said to have been double that
amount John M. Ward, George Gore.y
aim Aicrnan, iicKoy weian, .u crane,
Danny Richardson, BUI Brown, Arthur
Whitney, Oil Hoffleld, Pat Murphy and
Tltcomb were added to the club's roster
from time to time, so that when the pen
nant was raptured tn 1SS9 Mr. Day was
literally rolling tn wealth. He paid more
than ICO.000 to the players In salaries,
From the Brooklyns ho allowed them to
pocket the Now York club's entire share
of tho receipts.
It was during the following winter that
the Giants, wtth the exception of Tier
nan, Welch and Murphy agreed to desert
Mr. Day, They had Joined the Brother
hood, whloh had formed a secret agree
ment with various financial backers to
organize a rival circuit called the Play
ers' league. When Mutrle Informed Mr,
Day, thorefore, that all but three of the'
Giants had decided to Jump, tho New
York magneto replied:
"I do not belelve a word of It!. I have
treated my boys liberally and fairly. You
cannot make me believe that they are not
real men, that they are simply a lot of
Ingrates. 'Why, they haven't said; a word
to me about this Brotherhood because
they have no grievances that I cannot ad
Just In a few mlnutea,"
A week later Mr. Day learned that he
had been terribly deceived. Buck Uwlng
and Tim Keefe, who had been his per.
sonal friends, led the revolt Several

t Hnuet to Mr Day Just after the World s

Helped Htm In tv Way.
Other National leaguo club owners
came to Mr. Day's assistance with J100,
000 to enable his team to play out the
schedule, but they also took away his
stock. At the end of this disastrous year
Iho Brotherhood backers, who had dis
covered that tho public did not cure for
war, threw up their hands and were glad
to consider a Plan for consolidating the
rival clubs in the various cities. But
John B, Day, frozen out of the club he
organized watt left without a dollar.
"The present Federal league movement
reminds me of the old days," said Mr.
Day. "The players who have deserted
.Organized Base Ball have no griovauces.
Neither are they grateful for the fair
treatment they have received. It is a
case of money, not sentiment, and the
backers of tho Federal league will soon
follow the example of the men who
blindly financed the Players' league
nearly twenty-five yearn ngo. They will
quit In disgust, reudy to suo for peace
with the National and American leagues.
I'uhllo Did Not Take Stock.
"The Players' league failed, because the
public did not take stock In the players'
alloged grievances. Then, again, the
conflicting dates, the wrangling In the
newspapers and the contract Jumping by
by stars killed Interest In the gome. New
York fans knew that the Giants had been
,well paid by me and that they had been
"When I learned that all but three of
my players had deserted mo I was
shocked. I couldn't believe that men
whom I had befriended In many ways
were willing to turn their backs on me
without first talking It over. But I stuck
to the National league as a matter of
principle, and when they asked mo to
Join their movement It was an Insult
pure and simple.
"It's an old etory, but t shall never
forget It It cut me to the quick to
seo my old friends. Buck Ewing, John
Ward, Tim Keefe, Roger Connor and
others, playing for a rival club. But 1
fought the Brotherhood as far as I was
able to go and I do not regret It
llmu In Those Days.
"The Giants were great players In
those days. They were real champions,
but I do not believe that they could
have beaten some of the teams that
John McGraw has managed In recent
years. I think that base ball has become
much faster. There Is more Inside stuff
thanJn my days aa I never saw Matty's
equal as a pitcher, and I've not forgot

hHS equalled Ewlng In skill."
"Why do you think the Federal leaguo
backers will quit?" Sir. Day was asked.
"There aro two reasons," replied Mr.
Day. 'One Is their Inexperience and the
other Is the tremendous loss of money In
which they are Involved. If they try
to go on next year Interest In baso ball
will be further decreased, which means
that somebody will go Into bankruptcy,
rriie players In all the leagues are over
paid now and the game cannot live un
lera expenses are reduced. You canl
very well blame the players for getting
nil the money possible, for that Is human
nature. But thoio who have broken their
contracts have acted foolishly."
"Do you think that organized base
boll is a trust?"
"Not a bit of It. If the National agree
ment, which means tho reservation of
players from year to year, should be
abolished, base ball wouldn't amount to
shucks. Cut out the reserve or option
clausu and you would soon see tho New
ork, Boston and Chicago clubs In con
trol of tho best players. Why? Because
they could pay bigger salaries than the
clubs In the other cities, which an a
matter, of course, would lose money and
would be driven , to tho wall."
"Is It your opinion that there Is no
room for tho Federal league?"
"That's Just It. exactly. Tho base toll
public was well satisfied with last year's
conditions two major league pennant
races and a world's championship. The
players In both circuits received higher
mlaries than ever before tn the history
of base ball, yet I am sure that not
mora than six of tho sixteen clubs act
ually made money. The Federal league,
therefore, was not tho remult of public
clamor. The promoters of It never hud
the welfare of the players at heart, but
were prompted by a desire to get a slice
of the melon. Purely selfish motives.
'Look at this magnificent stadium, built
by my dear old friend, Mr. Brush! If
the fans hadn't believed In organized
base ball do you bolleve that Mr. Brush
would have built such a monument to
the national game? Persons who try to
show that the sport Is conducted in Vlo
lstlon of the 'Sherman anti-trust law are
enemies of base ball and they aro prob
ably regarded us such by the fans who
have helped to build up the game."
