A few more Hamilton episodes and
the Federal League will not be so
hasty in signing up disgruntled play
ers in the organized leagues. NThe
Fed magnates will refuse to be the
goats and the means of increasing
the salaries of the athletes with
no advantage to themselves. The
player who jumps to the Feds from
now on must give some definite as
surance that he will stick.
Hamilton yesterday jumped back
to the St. Louis Browns, declaring
that he had been handed a nice slice
of coin as the price of breaking his
second contract within a-week.
Officials of the Kay See Feds said
they had a civil contract with Hamil
ton that would stand in any court,
and that steps would be taken to en

This Cicotte is a pitcher deserving

All around the American circuit he
is looked on. as one of the best pitch-'

That is a remarkable tribute to a
