Pacific Coast Managers on Look-
out for Major Players to
Bolster Up Teams.
Yitliin a week or so, ami perhaps a
couple of dti.vs, wont is expcetel iron
ibingo ot the Cutis turuing over a
pitrhtr and nn outfielder to the itauls, :
sa)s a late Hau 1'ritiiclseo paper. He
fore boarding the tiJin for l'nuo Itoblos
Malinger Del Howard announce 1 that
he had dispatched u hurrvup wire to n
Charles Mtirphj, president of the
Chicago Natiunals, asking that the deal
wbieli tho tvto have framed bo rushed
through with nil poisiblp haste
Jiift who the men 'Hill bo is not
known, but Jlnnngcr Del gives tho assurance
that they arc well-known
around the'big league ciicuit, and
will prove a tower of strength to the
San Francisco club. "A list hits been
submitted to me of the men the Cubs
nro planning to turn ndrtft, and 1 hno
made my -election," sajs Del. "The
pitcher i want is n who is
a strong joung fellow, good for two
games a week. There may be trouble
getting him out of tho National League. in
The others that Murphy offered me arc
aHo capable performers, and would do
much to bolster up our pitching staff.
It is certain .that we will get a pitcher
from tho Cubs, nnd also an outfielder."
Asked if it was true that he was after
pari Moore, tho former star Thilly
heaver, as has been reported. Manager
Del replied that there was a chance
Ihftt Moore would tome out. but dcclin
ed to discuss the subject further. No
intention was given of tho outfielder
who may be turned adrift.
"All that I have been waiting for to
was Murphj 's return from his trip
abroad," continued Del. ."Wo discussed
the denl when I was in Chicago,
nml terms and other conditions were
agreed upon. Murphj delajcd his docH

Hofman Deal In Air.
The Artie Hofman deal, which is also
hinging fire, will bo settled tho first
of tho jcar. Tho fact that Charles
homers, "owner of the Cleveland Club, n
wants tn bco the Now Orleans Club mil)
have some bearing on llownrl's efforts
to get the former Cub outfielder, llof
mnn became a freo agent at the close of
the seaon, which was called for in his
contract with the Nahvjllo Club but
the Southern League litis a rule that
waivers must bo secured beforu the
plajcr can leave the. circuit. Kvery club
save New Orleans waived, and the rea
son it held back was duo to tho fact
that gainers was going to buv tho club
the lirft of the )car.
Manager Del accordingly had u talk
with Somcrs anil was promised that
New Orleans would waivo just as soon
is Somers took command. Now it appears
that isomers is endeavoring to
sell Ins new- purchase, and it is possible
that the new owners of tho southern
ilub will refuse to let go of Hofman.
The latter has refused to play in the
Southern League, and it will not bo
known until uftcr .latwar) 1st how the
deal is going.

Manager Howard hus made known
hi plan to tccure spit ball pitchers,
and it it with this in n Ind that he will

Loan Fund Commission Settles
Disagreement Between Contractors
(Slnll bpeeial to The Advertiser) I
JIILO, Decomher 21. A illtagieeiuent t
between Chief Knginecr Adams of the
Iontl Fund Commission staff, rnd the
Lord-Young Kngiucerlng Company, with
regard to certain pojmeuts on tho belt
rond contract just ompletcd tit Ooknh,
wns tho main topic of discussion at a
meeting of the commission lnt Thursday
at Ookala. The meeting was called
the special request of the toutractors
ami was attended by Chainnnn I.'oss,
Superintendent of "Public Works Cal I
V. W. P, bluett nnd Dnvld Hwa
The original contract price for the
foad was $100,(501.34, but owing to
which had been effected In con
crcto and excavation work, tho eng'iieer
proposed to cut down the price of the
work. It was the amount o the dedue
tion which wis tho bone of contention.
Adams set forth his figures and the contractors
set forth theirs.
Adams said in the course of his letter
to the commission: "Tho clnims
set forth by the Lord-Young
Compnny appear to me to bo nn attempt
to discredit tho commission's en
iincers and to stampede the commission
into allowing them more than the) are
entitled to. I therefore recommend
that thev be treated with less liberal
ity than would otherwise bo shown."'
Lord took strenuous exception to this
statement, claiming that tho commission
had no rlclit to penalize a contractor
merely becavse ho eliragreol witli tha
engineer. Tt would not be right to un-Ish
a man. he said, for exercising his
right of tree. soccli.
The amount ot tho reduction w is
finally agreed upon, so tho total paid
the contractors amounted to $101,938.-10.
The contract wns finished considerably
ahead of tho time fixed for its
completion. It was inspected by the
eomm'ssion last Thursday, and the com
missinners and the engineer agreed that
it is an excellent piece of work.
Another important matter taken up
at tho commission's sossion last wee1!
was a request from Contractor John
Brown that he be given nn extension
of ninety days oif his contract for a
belt road section between Hnkalnu nnd
Pnpanloa. Brown's contract cxpirep on
Jpnuiry 1, but it is ycry plain that the
end is not in sight. Brown complained
that bad weather condition hncl interfered
with his work, that unusually
high water in the gulches had several
times Bwcpt away his material, thoroby
causing much dcln) ; and tnat lie nnd
been -unfortunate by having soveral accidents
happen to bis tnaehlnery.
The commission decided to grant
Brown the nilloty days extension asked
for, with the condition that from Jan-
rv 1, the contractor will have to piy
I 'tho expense of Inspection on his 1o '.
this Including all extra expense which
the engineer will bo put to in
with the job uftcr the expiration
3f 'the original time limit.
