Mason, the opinion of wiitei- throuRh
ntlt the HaHlern league ell cult point
townid the eminent success of "Sand"
Orimn's men. The DltclllllE depalt-

which the club may prose weak.
Tht re me twenty phi era on the club

On the strength of the proposed make
up und that the pltchtiiB cotps will
chow an ethciency which will neatly
u erase that of ether clubs, Scranton
Is tipped In every Eastern leapue t lty
to llnish not lower than ilfth, while so
cial w liters claim the club us their
(hoice for foutth and n few size up
the team as hahi(r a good chance for
third place. All this K to bay the
least, pretty good for a ilub halt-corn-posul
of plau.s who finished an un
.nistakable tall-end hunt seabon.
Thetc Is reason for the.se hopes. Al
though the elub ia not stamped with too
much of that dash and speed which aro
essential to a nuro winner, Its hittlns
sttength should be second to none In
tie lectio. Mossty and Bonnet with
pel cental's of .317, Heard' .855 and
Manuiie'K .101 show an meiage lnlleld
hitting sttength of .331. The outlleld
looms up een better than that. "Wal-
teis conies here from the New Eng
land league with an aerage of .374,
Daly has n in irk of .31!) and Eagan
pounded out .329 last season nnd he hit
In hatd luck at that. These figures

Of the others, Meaney has an aerage

A sample of how Scranton Is viewed
away from homo Is shown In the fol
lowing extract from a genet al levlew
stoty In the Buffalo Express, nnd the
opinion It contn Ins is a fair ex imple of
what other sporting writers say:
As far as team strength Is concerned,
looking at tho past wotk and tecords
of Individual flaeis, It Is fair to Judite
that the llrst dlWslon should Include Bul
la lo, Providence, Sracube and Scranton
The second dltUIon may be headed bv
Itoehester, with Wllkes-Barre and Spring
Held following and Toronto nailing.
Many fans like tho tntcs New York
clubs and l'roUdence. Others look on
bcranton as dangerous. It Is safe to say
that both Sciunton und Wllkes-Barre ate
much stronger than last ear. llkes
!irre may not be a second division team
after all. Some hot southern blood has
just been Imported and the Coal Batons
may astonish tho natives.
Scranton is good and strong. Three of
Rochester's bebt men, Hojd, Heard nnd
Dul, aro with the Coal Heavers, in bat
ting, tho team is the sttongest of them
ull Ilonner, of Wllkes-Barre, will bo a
hot ono on second. tMeanej will be on
tho pitching staff, but It Is hardly likcl.
that ho will stay thero long. The only
weik point In the team is the pitching
It Is true that 'Wllkes-narre's chances
are not to he despised. In all past bea
sons that club has been an unknown
quantity up to a few weeks, and often
times a few dn before the practice
season. On that account this vear
there has be-en glen no opportunit to
wax enthusiastic over AVllkos-Hatre's
outlook until ,ery recently. Now It
transpires that while Wilkes-Harre has
lost Bonner and Lezotto It has secured

most promising now professionals In

another addition nnd will tilav In the

It Is possible that Powell will bring

Every team In the league begins tho
season with good prospects of financial
success, Toronto excepted. Arthur Ir
win, In accepting the Toronto fian
ohlse, seems to have stacked v:
against a pietty hard game, and If the
Canadians finish the season It will be
sut prising. That team ut home will
have to compete for favor with the Ca
nadian league, which, In Tot onto, Is
lepresented by a club managed by
Matldocks, the rather primitive and
eas -going gentleman who managed
tlio Totonto Eastern league team In
1895. Just now the Totonto sporting
w titers are not falling over themselves
In tin effort to help It win nut. The

It may be, however, that someone
more lnlluentlal than AUhur lrvvln is
back of Totonto. That was Indicated
In tho Washington Star, the mouth
piece of Eatl Wagner, which contained
these headlines: "Grjpcl Kor This City,
Mr Wagner Deal With the Totonto

WASHINGTON." The stoiy contained
There Is no longer doubt that J. Hail

the Pittsbuig club After the cotimimmi
tlon of the dial, Sir. Iiwln at once went

and that he has succeeded In doing so
Is admitted by all persons who keep In
tourh with base ball matteis
This deal was a wise stloke of business
pollci on Mr. Wagner's part, and unswers
the often asked question: "What ai
rangi ment has Mr. Wngner made to
strengthen his team In eahe of nccldriit
or other misfortune? It Is call seen
thit the Washington club was nevir --0
well fortified, having first cull on anv
