SUCKER DEAL NOW
BEFORE BULL JURY
Gambling Frameup to Bilk
Owners Is Latest.
PHILLIES, CUBS ON GRID
Guilt of Cliase and Magee Held
Proven by Affidavits of Wig
CHICAGO, Oct. 1. The Cook county
grand jury Investigating the baseball
scandal today received further in-
formation concerning the throwing of
games in last year's world series,
but devoted most of the day's session
to an investigation of alleged crooked
work in the National league.
William Veeck, president of the
Chicago National league club, told the
Jury that his private investigation of
charges that the Philadelphia-Chicago
National league game of August
31 had been fixed for Philadelphia to
win led him to believe that the club
itself had been made the "sucker" in
the case. Other witnesses gave ad
ditional details of the activities which
led to the discharge from baseball of
Lee Magee and Hal Chase.
Veeck said evidence he had found
in Detroit convinced him there was no
crooked work in tho August 31 game.
He said he believed the gamblers
themselves had sent him the tele
graVns received just before the game,
sayir.g it was "fixed" and that they
had done this to make the club switch
from Hendryx. a comparatively
weak pitcher scheduled to hurl, to
Alexander, one of the best in the
league. This gave Chicago its strong
est possible lineup, which was what
the gamblers wanted, he said. Many
of them hot on Chicago to win and
not on Philadelphia as had been re
ported, he declared.
Guilt of Chase Held PrOTtn,
Garry Herrmann, president of the
Cincinnati club and formerly chair
man of the national commission, pre
sented affidavits from Christy Math
ewson, former New York pitcher and
Cincinnati manager, "Greasy" Neale,
Cincinnati outfielder: Jimmy Ring,
Cincinnati pitcher, and Manager Mc
CSraw of the New York Giants. These
affidavits, he told newspapermen, ab
solutely proved the guilt of Chase
The affidavit from Ring is said to
have told how Chase approached the
pitcher when he was just breaking
into the big leagues and asked him if
he "wanted to make a lot of money by
throwing games." Ring was quoted
as telling Chase to "go to the devil,"
and then reporting the affair to Herr
mann. On another occasion Herrmann is
said to have told the jury Ring ac
cepted $50 from Chase, but immedi
ately reported it to the club man
agement. Herrmann verified accounts given
Wednesday by President John Heyd
ler of the National league of how Lee
Magee actually helped win a game he
was trying to "throw."
Interest in the American league
Side of the scandal was kept up by the
return of Maclay Hoyne, state's at
torney, from New York with evidence
which he said would help in prose
cution of those indicted. Mr. Hoyne
denied reports that he had ordered
the investigation stopped, went before
, the jury to tell it that he heartily ap
proved of its work and then told how
Charles Comiskey had sought his aid
last fall in investigating the world
Players Promise Fight.
"We investigated for some time and
Trhile we found enough to convince
us the series was not on the square
w found nothing on which to base
legal action," said Mr. Hoyne.
Clyde BHiott, another witness, veri
fied the previous testimony concern
ing a trip by William "Kid" Gleason,
White Sox manager, to St. Louis in
an attempt to get evidence that the
World series was not straight.
"Buck" Weaver, Fred McMullin and
'Swede" Risberg, three of the eight
White Sox players indicted, tonight
declared they were innocent and
would fight the case in court.
"We are arranging for legal coun
sel and we'll prove our innocence."
Weaver said. "We'll be back in the
big leagues next year."
It was reported that the jury had
received evidence that considerable
betting wa done in Kansas City this
year on a Cleveland-Chicago game,
but no testimony proving crooked
ness in this connection was received,
according to an official in the state's
The jury will not again consider
the baseball scandal until next Tues
day, when Hughey Jennings. Detroit
manager; Jean Dubuc. former Detroit
pitcher now with Toledo: John Mc
Graw, Fred Toney and Benny Kauff,
the latter two players on the New
York National league team, are ex
pected to testify. The jury will be
sworn in as a special session tomor
Tow. Its regular term expiring today.
Reports said to emanate from mem
bers of the White Sox team credit
"Happy" Felsch with having- placed
$5000, accepted as a bribe from the
Bamoiers, as a bet on Cincinnati
the second game of the series.
It is claimed he telegraphed his
wife in Milwaukee to come to Chicago
for the first game and that when
she met him his greeting was to toss
xia.uuo in winnings on the table.
The players said the couple had a
disagreement over the affair, but
later were reconciled.
The money was said to have been
withdrawn from a savings bank last
Monday. Mrs. Felsch is expected to
be questioned by the grand jury.
KOBIX QUIZ NEAR KXD
Giant Players Will Go to Chicago
Hearing: Xext Tuesday.
NEW YORK. Oct. 1. Examination
of members of the Brooklyn base
ball club by District Attorney Lewis
of Kings county in an effort to learn
whether any of them had been ap
proached in an attempt to "fix" the
coming world s series was continued
today. Eight members of the team
appeared before the prosecutor, but
no statement regarding the question
ing was given out by Mr. Lewis.
After he had questioned Captain Zack
Wheat and two other players yes
terday Mr. Lewis said he found
"absolutely" nothing to substantiate
the vague rumors which prompted
him to make the investigation.
The remaining members of the team
will appear before Mr. Lewis tomor

The New York club of the National
league will- be represented at the
tfrand jury hearing in Chicago Tues
day by Manager McGraw, Pitchers
Fred Toney and "Rube" Benton,
Benny Kauff and Larry Doyle. Doyle
was added to the list today, and it
was said He will be asked to make
a statement regarding some bets he
made with Hal Chase on the world's
series last year. Doyle explained to
day that these bets were made on
his part in a friendly way while the
Giants were barnstorming and were
indulged in only to add a little in
terest to the big game. He said the
bets were usually $10 or $20 and
that he placed his money on the
White Sox to win.
Doyle today made light of a state
ment said to have ben made by
Charlie Dooin, former manager of the
rhillies, in which it was alleged that
attempts were made to "fix" a seriee
in 1908 between the Giants and Phil
lies to enable the Giants to win the
pennant. Doyle declared it was all
news to him. He said his record In
baseball was clean, and that he would
stand upon it regardless of what

Judge W. W. McCredre. president
of the Portland baseball club, re
ceived a telegram from Walter Mc
Credie in Seattle yesterday saying
that George Maisel, centerf ielder and
captain of the Beaver squad, left last
night for his home in Baltimore,
owing to the death of his mother
yesterday. Mrs. Maisel has been
ailing for several months and George
has been hoping for the end of the
season so that he could go back to
his home. Maisel will remain in the
east as the season would be over
before he could return and he would
probably not be able to play any
baseball for several weeks even if he
could get back.
All too late the Portland club has
taken what seems to be a new lease
on life and got off to a flying start
in the present series in Seattle, taking
two out of the three games played.
Rain yesterday swamped the field.
Maybe the Beavers' lease will run out
when they next tangle with the
Rainiers, but according to all reports
from the north tho youngsters and
old heads are stepping around like a
lot of colts.
The fact that Vernon and Los An
geles both lost yesterday leaves them
practically the same distance apart
in the race for the flag and the
gonfalon is still anybody's rag.
A bit of news which might cause
genial Judge McCredie to bat a wicked
eyelash is that the Beaumont club
of the Texas league disposed of short
stop Don Rader to New Orleans for
the mere sum of $4000. Don was on
the Portland payroll -for a season and
then some, but Boss Walter let him
go last year when too many young
sters began to grace , the club and
Wes Kingdon broke in sensationally
at the shortpatch Rader took
Sewell's place on the New Orleans
ciub. the latter having been sold to
Cleveland to fill Ray Chapman's
Tris Speaker purchased Walter
Mails on the recommendation of
Frank Chance. The manager of the
Cleveland club asked the peerless
leader about Mails nearly two months
ago. With Mails having a winning
streak cf six games. Speaker evident

the fact that Walter was knocked out
of the box yesterday.

AUTO DRIVER . IS HELD
COROXEK'S JURY PASSES OX
DEATH OF MIKE ERCEG.
Testimony Is Declared to Show
That Auto Was Being Driven
Too Fast by II. A. Prosser.
The coroner's jury which last night
investigated circumstances of the
death yesterday of Mike Erceg as re-
suit or injuries received Tuesday
when struck by an automobile driven
by H. A. Prosser recommended that
Mr. Prosser be held for further in
vestigation. The jurors also expressed
the conviction that Mr. Prosser had
been driving too rapidly.
'"We find," the jury's report stated,
"that Mr. Prosser was driving too fast
under the conditions. We recommend
that he be held under investigation to
the grand jury."
Mr. Erceg was driving a small
bunch of cattle on the Linnton road,
near the S. Ban mill, when injured.
The testimony showed that as Mr.
Prosser came up from behind the
cattle suddenly began to spread over
the road and that on an impulse to
go after them Mr. Erceg stepped in
front of Prosser's machine.
Henry r. Ketchum, an eye witness
to the accident, testified that Prosser
drove by him and was traveling about
25 miles an hour at the time. Testi
mony of Eric Norman, who was help
ing Erceg with the cattle, corrob
orated that of Ketchum.
On the witness stand Mr. Prosser
was questioned at some length re
garding an unknown woman who was
riding with him at the time of the
accident. He said he was coming in
from Johnson's landing and picked up
the woman there. After he had put
the victim of the accident In his car
and driven on about a mile, he testi
fied, the woman became hysterical
and Insisted on getting out of the car.

Sam Langford took on five of Port

his workout at the armory, the box
ers weighing from 116 to 176 pounds.
Not one of these youngsters did Sam
try to hurt and stepped around and
played with them as if he was a light
weight. Langford may be a veteran
in years of experience in the ring but
anyone who saw him step yesterday

ten-round bout against "Tiny" Her

many a good battle in the Boston tar
Allie Taylor, the young Bend ban
tamweight, who will meet Johnny
Coy of Sacramento in one of the six-
round special events next week, took
the frrst whirl with Langford for two
rounds. Taylor dug right in with
both hands and Sam playfully took
everything Allie. had to offer. As a
result both got good exercise.
Bert Taylor, the Portland light-
heavyweight, was next and boxed
Langford two rounds. Langford
opened up on Bert with some lusty
body blows but did not try to caress
the latter's chin.
Willie St. Clair Takes Whirl.
Willie St. Clair followed Taylor,
stepping three fast rounds with the
negro heavyweight and gave the fans
a big laugh by his antics. Weldon
Wing, who will box Young Sam Lang
ford in the semi-windup, took on
Toung Sam's godfather next, boxing
Frankie Crites. the Newberg light
weight, brought up in the van of spar
ing partners and gave Langford the
best workout of the bunch.
Crites did not hold Sam in fear and
tore right in. He put everything he
had in his punches, but they bounced
off of the Boston heavy's dome like
gravel off an army helmet.
. Langford will take on all the boys
again this afternoon, starting at 3
o'clock at the Armory.
