[from Charles Foley's column] By ordering McQuade and Curry to umpire the Boston-New York series in Jersey City, Nick Young has declared himself in favor of the double umpire system in all important games. This is as it should be, for it is only a matter of time when the League and Association will adopt the system. There is only one reason why the League people are opposed to double umpiring, and that is the expense incurred. We need the double umpire system more than ever before, because there is more batting under the new rules; because there are more men than ever taking their bases on balls; and the more the bases are occupied, the more arduous becomes the umpire's task.
