John Evers' contract to man
age the Ctibs runs for five years.
His salary is not announced.
Evers says the only man who
will suit him at the shortfield po

will be another evidence of the
close connection between the
Phillies and Cubs, and a peg upon
which opponents of "syndicate

salary list "will be ordered at the
meeting of the American Asso

and Kansas City are said to be
the only teams which have made
money in v the . last two years.

Brown,' and Princeton, meeting
Dartmouth, has its first hard

Tigers look "like coming cham
pions. Clarke Griffith has had his sal

$10,000 by the Washington own

tionals made last season.
Ump Bill Brennan is going in
to vaudeville. Horace Fogel,
armed with a bouquet of carrots,
has1 engaged a front seat for
Brennan's opening.
Packey McFarland and Ad
Wolgast fight tonight. No, not
each other. Wolgast fights Fred
Daniels in Quincy, 111., and Mc
Farland meets Jim Duffy in Buf

gether as the two scrappers will
ever come while they have glqves
