SEATTLE. "iVash.. Sept. 30. (Spe
cial.) The Rainiers slipped back Into
the rut acaiii today, losing a poorly
played contest to the Heavers, 3 to 0.
The home boys were in their hltless
mood asain, while Rod Murphy made
two errors at first base which were
converted into runs by McCredie's
hustling sans. Kailio pitched good
ball and deserved his shutout.
The opposition did not frlean an
earned run off the three local chuck

Schorr shut the visitors out for three
'inninKs and then kicked himself out
of the game. Schorr became pro
voked when Pan Mctlrew missed two
or three strikes on him and Hunky
expressed himself so strongly that
Iiancerous Dan1" chased him to the
splashing waters. Hunky refused to
go of his own accord, however, and
it took the combined efforts of Bonne
and Zamlock to escort the southpaw
to the clubhouse.

Loyal Sox Likely to Get Reward
Tills Vear Out 'of Their
World Scries Cut.
CHICAGO. Sept. 30. A declaration
that the investigation of the 1919
world's series baseball scandal would
be continued by the Cook county
grand jury, which will be constituted
a special grand jury, was made in a
statement issued today by Charles A.
MacDonald. chief justice, who or
dered the inquiry. Every suspicious
game, he declared, that has been
played within the last 18 months In
either the National or the American
league will come within the purview
of the investigation.
The investigation, the judge de
clared, still has much to accomplish,
"To this end," he added, "the present
grand jury will be incorporated as a
special body Saturday and will go
ahead until it has sifted down the
evidence to the last incriminating
fact. Every suspicious game which
has been played within the last 18
monthe in either league will be with
in the purview of the investigation.
Because of the statute of limitations
that is as far back as the jury can
;uilty to Be Prosecuted.
"There need be no doubt about the
prosecution of guilty players and
their co-conspirators. None of those
who have confessed have been
granted immunity; in fact, each has
specifically waived it. Of course It
will be natural for the prosecutors
to take into consideration services
which the indicted men have per
formed for the state, but that does
not mean they will escape indict
ment." August Herrmann, president of the
Cincinnati Reds, last year's pennant
winners, and former chairman of the
national baseball commission, who
was asked by the grand jury to pre
sent whatever documents he may have
bearing on the 1919 series, and Clyde
Elliott, motion picture- man, who
aided Charles Comiskey, president of
the Chicago White Sox, in his inves
tigation of the series, are to be the
next witnesses before the grand jury.
It was Jaid tonight. It was also as
serted that efforts would be made to
obtain statements from two . addi
tional suspended White Sox players
as to their part in "throwing" games.
More Indictments Likely.
John J. McGraw, manager of the
New York Giants, left for New York,
but was expected to return Tuesday
with Benny Kauff and Fred Toney.
members of his club. Kauff was al
leged to have been involved in
"throwing" a game last summer on
deal with Heinie Zimmerman.
Indictments, it is said, may be
voted against three more ball players
and six or seven gamblers. Two of
the latter may be a man known as
Brown of New York and "Sport" Sul
livan of Boston, who were named In

Players who remained loyal to
Charles A. Comiskey, president of the
Chicago White Sox, in the last world's
series against Cincinnati, may receive
this reward this year, according to
statistics figured out tonight. In fig
uring this problem attention was
calied to the small number of eligible
players remaining on the White Sox
club who would share in the money.
The problem, which is a mathemat
ical one, has many possibilities.
Loyal Sox Reward Due.
If the White Sox win the pennant
and engage Brooklyn in the world's
series, even though they should be
defeated, the losers' share, when
divided among the individual White
WHEN A FELLER NEEDS A FRIEND.
Sox players, would be almost as great
as that of their opponents, because of
the larger number players on the
National league club. Owing to the
rul- which gives the second and third
place clubs in the leagues a share in
the world's series pool. It is possible
for each player on the Chicago team,
if it finishes in second place and
divides its money, to receive almost
as much as the individuals on the
losing club in the baseball classic
Another possible division would
arise in the event the White Sox
should tie the New York Tankees for
second place by losing all three games
to St. Louis. In this case the total
second and third place money would
b divided equally between the clubs.
The amount divided among the White
Sox in that case would give each Chi
cago player a larger sum than the in
dividual amounts received by each
New York player and also would be
pearly as much as the individual share
of each player on the losing club.
NEW VORK OFFERS TO HELP
Chicago Prosecutor May Accept Aid
From Eastern City.
NEW YORK, Sept. 30. On the eve
of the investigation to be conducted
by District Attorney Lewis of Kings
county concerning rumors that the
coming world series had been "fixed,"
District Attorney Swann tonight sent
a letter to State's Attorney Hoyne of
Chicago, offering his assistance to
prosecute those indicted for the
alleged scandal connected with the
1919 series. Mr. Swann's offer was
made contingent upon Mr. Hoyne
finding that some part of the alleged
felony was committed in New York
"The Chicago authorities seem to
have well in hand the cases of the
crooks who were willing to debase
the great national sport of baseball
for their sordid ends," .said Mr.
Swann's letter. "The crooked gam
blers who aided and abetted, procured
and advised the throwing of the
games, seemed to have planned the
scheme in part in New York and con
summated it in your city.
"Concocting the scheme to defraud,
of course, is a misdemeanor and is
all that our courts could take juris
diction of, as I read the testimony,
while your courts have jurisdiction
of the felony committed by consum
mation of the scheme to defraud."
While President Ebbetts and Man
ager Wilbert Robinson of the Brook
lyn team have no dou'bt as to the hon
esty and integrity of their players,
both have expressed willingness to
aid District Attorney Lewis In his
Investigation. The district attorney
declared that he had heard vague
rumors that a clique of gamblers,
similar to that which bribed the
White Sox players last year, was
making an attempt to buy the coming
world's series. It was his intention,
he said, to question the Brooklyn
players thoroughly as soon as pos
sible. Three members of the team. Cap
tain Zach Wheat, Al Mamaux and
James W. Taylor, appeared before
District Attorney Lewis late today
and made statements of which a
stenographic report was made.
Later when Mr. Lewis was asked if
anything of a suspicious nature had
been unearthed, he replied: "Abso
The district attorney said he was
satisfied that the players were
"strictly on the level," and that his
purpose in examining them was
simply to find out if any attempt
had been made to approach them.
President Ebbetts said that by Sat
urday all members of the team will
have appeared before the prosecutor.

MOT UPHELD .
I RUMLER CASE
Coast League Directors Are
Behind Their President.
VOTE PROVES UNANIMOUS
Committee Appointed to Investi
gate Further Possibilities or
Gambling ou Coast.
SAX FRANCISCO, Sept. 39- (Spe
cial.) Business men with large inter
ests were brought here at heavy ex
pense from the four points of the
compass to attend a meeting of the
coast league and to discuss the case
of Bill Rumler, a ball player who has
been barred for five years because he
admitted taking money from Babe
Borlon, a confessed briber of ball
players, and not even a motion was
made that Rumler be reinstated. On
the contrary, the motion was made to
sustain the action of President Mc
Carthy, and every one of the eight
directors in the league voted favor
ably. Later, Billy Lane, president of
the Salt Lake club, realized his mis
take and asked permission to change
his vote. That was granted him, so
the records now show that the direct
or? of the San Francisco, Oakland,
Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Vernon
and Los Angeles clubs voted to sus
tain the action of McCarthy, and Salt
Lake alone voted "No."
A committee, consisting of Presi
dent McCarthy, Cal Ewing of the Oak
land club and Charles H. Graham of
the San Francisco club, was appointed
and voted permission to use the sink
ing fund of the league to investigate
and ferret out all rumors of crooked
deals and crooked ball players in the
Coast league. The Salt Lake repre
sentatives left the meeting with the
impression that this would give them
another chance to bring up the Rum
Rnmlrr's Chance Scemit Slim.
In this tttey are likely mistaken, as
there seems about as much chance of
Bill Rumler being reinstated as Eddie
Cicotte has of pitching the "first game
in the next world series. His Salt Lake
friends may still believe that Bill
was "simply a big boob." as they ex
press it, in making his deal with Babe
Borton. But until Rumler can bring
evidence to show that he was not
telling the truth when he signed the
affidavit which was filed with Presi
dent McCarthy, explaining his deal
ings with Borton, the Rumler case
will not get inuch consideration in
Judge McCredie and William H.
Klepper of the Portland and Seattle
clubs did not attend the meeting.
Lewis Moreing of Sacramento had the
Portland proxy and Cal Ewing voted
The meeting was so tame that Pres
ident McCarthy and some of the direc
tors wondered why it was called at
all. First. Salt Lake wanted to turn
the whole matter over to a committee
which would make a report to the an
nual meeting of the league. Johnny
Powers of Los Angeles and Charley
Graham of S:m Francisco said they
had been called away from their busi
ness to discuss the Rumler case and
they insisted upon discussing it.
ncv. Goflheo Defends Knmler.
And, after all, the discussion
amounted to nothing. Jack Cook
made a long speech, showing that the
.Salt Lake folks were anxious to pre
serve the integrity of baseball. Frank
Murphy, a former president of the
Salt Lake club, deplored the fact that
the Salt Lake folks were being put in
a bad' light and he wanted that cor
rected. Then Rev. Dr. Goshen, who
said he "knew men," said that if the
directors knew Bill Rumler as well
as he did they would be convinced
that he did nothing crooked when he
took money from Babe Borton.
But all the talk amounted to just
nothing at all. Then Billy McCarthy
put on a spellbinding stunt of his
own and he got the only applause
given any of the orators.
The directors did a smart thing
when they decided to have an open
meeting, and a stenographer to take
down the proceedings. The more open
their proceedings are the more con
fidence the public will have in them.
Salt Lake made no threats to w-itn-draw
from the league and Frank
Murphy said they had no intention
of, doing anything of that kind, so
the. Fresno folks must wait a while
for their franchise.
Vernon Mar Cct Jury.
But the committee appointed may
have some work to do after all. Eddie
Maier of the Vernon club reported
that District Attorney Woolwine of
Los Angeles was not keen to handle
the cases of the Vernon players
against Babe Borton, nor Borton's
case against Bill Essii-k, manager of
the Vernon team, and the committee
may get busy and try to have a grand
Jury in Los Angeles take up the mat
ter. It was the grand jury in Chi
cago that opened up the festering
sore i'n the American league, and a
grand jury in this league might do
Now is evidently the time to kick

Cal Ewing said the grand jury at
Oakland Is going to look into every
betting game there and it may catch

thieves in the dragnet. Cal hopes
they will and he ia going to give them
every assistance in his power.
Hard .Winter" Letter en fcHle.
Eddie Maier is mighty suspicious
right now of a pitcher on the Vernon
club, but says he can't get proof
enough to Justify him in firing him.
Maier favors having a grand jury
investigate the charges made by
Borton and the members ,of the Ver
non club, and Rays he will gladly
kick out of baseball any member of
the Vernon club against whom
evidence can be produced.
Feeling as they do. the Salt Lake
men will bring up the Rumler case
again at the annual meeting of the
league. October 25. but they will not
get very far. The Rumler case is
closed so far as the coast league is
concerned. If Rumler wants redress
he must seek elsewhere for it.
As a matter of fact Bill Rumler was
in the hotel lobby of the St. Francis
while the meeting was In progress.
He did not ask to be heard, nor was
he called. His affidavit was on file
and also a letter he wrote Babe Bor
ton reminding him that it was "to be
a long, hard winter" and the direc
tors, by a vote of seven to one, de
cided to bar him from the coast
league for a period of five years.
Giant'Vank Series Eliminated.
NEW YORK. Sept. 30. Possibility
of a post-season series of games be
tween the New York Giants and the
New York Yanks was eliminated to
day upon the arrival of Charles A.
Stoneharn. president of he Giants,
from Cuba. Mr. Stoneham based his
objections on the grounds that peo
ple would say the games were played
for mercenary reasons; that they
x , 1
might affect the attendance at the
world series in Brooklyn, and that the
games would necessitate keeping the
players of both teams together too
long: after the close of the season.
Sport News and Comment
Pasadena, Cal., ha a movement on foot
to Inaugurate another football classic in
addition to its New Year's east versus
wet game. The present plan contemplates
an annual football game to be held on
Armistice da . November 11. The Ameri
can Legion has the consent of the arm j
and navy authorities to stage the game,

of many more. The champion team of
the Pacific fleet and the champion eleven
of the western department of te army
are to be contenders nth year.
With the decisive defeat of the Olympic
club of San Francieco by the University
of Catitornia on Saturday, the air casties
that the clubmen had been building as the
team to represent the wet agalnnt the
east in the annual Pasadena game went a
glimmermg. As a matter of fact, they
were the only ones who entertained this
extravagant dream, so that there was no
rude awakening in any place nave within
the walls of the 'Winged O" organization.
Never before has there been so much
early season interest taken in the games
which will be p!ayed between the California
universities and those of Washington and
Oregon. According to the graduate man
agers at both the University of California
and Stanford university, the advanre de
mand tor seats is such that it already ip
a certainty there will not be sufficient
accommodation to seat all tho?e who will
want to attend the contests. As for the
"big game" between California and Stan
ford, the call for tickets has been f great
that a movement already is on foot at the
University of California to start a cam
paign for a concrete playing stadium sim

SOME men who think nothing of spending a dol

These extra -dollars put into Florsheim Shoes will

cannot obtain when you accept ordinary shoes that
cost you a dollar or two less. Florsheim Shoes prove
their worth long before they arc ready for the discard.
