FIELDER JONES IS
ST. LOUIS FEDERAL
Gilmore Announces Ex-Boss of
Chicago White Sox Is to
PAY SAID TO BE $30,000
KoMgnation Handed in as President
of North-western League, Is As
sertion, and Formal Change
TV11I Be Next Friday.
CHICAGO. Aug. 16. (Special.)
Fielder Jones, the man who made pos
sible the coinage of the phrase, "hitless
wonders, has returned to major league
haseball as manager of the St. Louis
tt'fcflprfll I.eairue Club.
Tho announcement was made today
by .lame." A. Gilmore. president or me
third league, who said that the former
wizard-pilot of the White Sox. at a
meeting in St. Louts last uuesuay,
signed a contract to assume the bur
dens now carried by Mordecai Brown.
The move was withheld at Jones' re
miKt to sriv him time to return to
Portland to resign the presidency of the
Northwestern League. The resignation
was handed in this afternoon. Gilmore
MM. . ,
Jones will supplant Brown next Fri
day, when the St. Louts club is at
home. He will continue In that role
during the seasons of 1915 and 1916,
according to the document signed by
hlxn and the backers 'of the St. Louis
Pay Said to Be S30.0O0.
Just what figures were written to
entice Jones back Into the game has
not been told, but it Is understood that
S30.000 or thereabouts will go to the
ex-National and American League star
lor his term of service.
Because Jones i-as refused several
offers from major league clubs and quit
active playing because Charles Comls
key would not sell him stock in the
White Sox. it Is thought that at least
some of the shares in the St. Louis
Federals also are to be transferred to
the new manager.
rnnoB loft St. Louis for the Coast
tVortTiosflAV and on his arrival immedi
ately presented his resignation. When
word of this action reacueu
the Federal leader made his announce
ment. Gilmore Is Tickled.
"I think the deal is one of the big
gest in baseball circles in years," said
Oilmore. "By a coincidence I was en
abled to announce it on the day picked
as our finish by one of the leading op
ponents. I certainly am mighty tickled
to have landed Jones, for he will
strengthen us in every department."
Gilmore announced further that
Brown, the 'three-lingered pitching
marvel," whose duels with Christy
Mathewson used to enliven the Cub
Giants series, would remain wtth the
6L Louis Federals as a player. Brown
organized and took charge of the team
at the opening of the campaign, but
after a spurt in which his men led the
new league and roused enthusiasm for
It In St. Louis, there came a slump
which the manager could not over
come. The resultant loss of patronage led
the owners of the club to seek new
JOXKS WILL BE HOME TODAY
Federals Receive Biggest Boost Since
Tinker Jumped, 3IcCredie Say 9.
While Fielder Jones still holds the
presidency of the Northwestern League
he Is expected to tender his resigna
tion to the directors today upon his
return home from a hurried Eastern
Mrs. Jones received a telegram from
him yesterday saying he would be in
on a morning train.
He did not say how long he would
remain here, but from the tenor of
Chicago dispatches he is billed to cut
short his jaunt to Portland and re
turn Immediately to assume the bur
dens of the St. Louis management.
"The greatest boost the Federals
have received, barring not even Joe
Tinker's Jump." declared Walter Mc
Credle yesterday, when informed of
the consummation of the deal. "To my
way of thinking. Jones and Connie
Mack are the kingpins of baseball."
President Gilmore. of the Federal
Leaguers, gave no announcement of
tfie terms of Jones' contract. It may
b straight salary at around 115,000
.per season which was the amount
(Jpmiskey offered Jones when he quit
tlje Chicago Sox or it may be salary
and a bunch of stock.
jThe odds are that Mr. Jones is now
a stockholder In the outlaw circuit.
Several times within the past three
or four years he has rejected straight
salary proffers and it Is hardly thought
he would ally himself with the Feds
without some pretty fat-looking prize
Fielder's baseball career dates back
to the old outlaw days of the American
League. Jones jumped Brooklyn away
back in 1899 or 1900 for the Chicago
Americans, so this wll not be his first
splurge Into guerrilla warfare.
From 1900 to 1908 Fielder was with
out a peer as outfielder, captain and
manager of the White Sox. He was
manager when the Sox won the world's
championship from the Chicago Cubs
in i : nn.1 It wax his fine work as
leader and player that did as much as
anything else to win the title.
As centerflelder he led the American
League in 1902, 1903 and 1906.
--Mr. Jones retired In 1909 to enter
the lumber business In Portland with
his brother. The lure of the game Is
so great that few men, very few. in
fact, have retired as Jones did, in the
heydey of his career.
Charles Comiskey tried several times
afterwards to Induce Fielder to re
turn, but his old manager could not
see him for the haze.
Curiously enough, the man whom
Fielder Jones supplanted as manager
of the Sox In 1904 is again at the helm.
His name Is Jimmy Callahan.
Portus Baxter, well-known Seattle
sporting editor, is being strongly rec
nniTAnriAi' a Mr. Jones' successor to
h .ortD western ixasue ui eivicuw. .

BASEBALL MANAGER WHO TAKES OVER ST. LOUIS FEDERALS
Boston Threatens to Crowd
Giants Out of Lead.
OTHERS ALSO CLOSING IN
American League Race Largely Is
Affair of Philadelphia Athletics
and Chicago Federals Man
age to Stay Ahead.
NEW YORK. Aug. 16. Major league
baseball interest centered this week
in the sensational spurt of the Boston
National League team.
George Stalllngs' men. whose steady
upward trend has been watched with
more or less apprehension by clubs
ahead for more than a month, outdid
the expectations of their warmest ad
mirers In the closing days of the week
by running the Champion New Yorks
off their feet, routing them In every
game of a three-game series.
The Braves are now only three and
a half games behind McGraw's men
and playing at a clip which bids fair
to land them at the top In short order,
as the Giants appear to be wobbling
badly in all departments.
Boston, however, must keep up Its
pace, not only to gain on the Giants,
but to keep its second place standing
intact. St. Louis and Chicago are tied,
only two games behind.
The American League race is much
an affair of the Philadelphia Athletics
with the rest comparatively nowhere.
There seems little prospect of any
club catching the Mackmen with their
