, Johnny Evers May Quit.
Keports are 'now in circulation that
Johnny Evers, the Chicago National's
star second b?s?inan, has played his
last game with the Cubs.
In a letter received by a Chicago
friend recently Evers declared posi
tively that, he would not play with the
world's champions next season and
JOHNNY EVERS,. STAR SECOND SACKER OF.
that he would hot care if he never saw
another baseball. To prove he ls go
ing to quit, Evers says it is his inten
tion to ask- Charles W. Murphy for
such a mighty stipend that the presi
dent of the world's champions will not
ask him to return. Evers' reason for
giving up the game is that he has busi
ness prospects which will require his
attention and pay him better than
staying in baseball.
. Cy Young Says He Will Stick
Downcast over' the trade whereby
Lou Criger, his old catcher, goes to the
St Eouis^ Americans and Spencer to
? Boston, but stating that he has no in
tention of retiring' because of the
change, Cy Young, Boston's "grand old
man," comes out in an interview re
cently regarding the deal.
Cy said that he' could hardly realize
that Criger' was to leave and that
Spencer would be his receiver next
' "I have pitched to Lou so long that
he seems a part of me," said he, "and
I am positire nel one will suffer more.

Kalamazoo Plans Big Meets.
Kalamazoo, Mich., is planning to give
a great combination trotting and pacing
meeting in 1909, similar to the one of
1908, and will endeavor to retain its
dates in both the. grand -and; great
western circuits. It ls probable that
the first week of August will be asked
for " in the ?two associations, and if
Kalamazoo is so far recognized there is
little doubt 'that this harness racing
meeting will, be one of the greatest
given in America.
' Michigan horsemen generally recog
nize that th? coming meeting, .of. the~
great western will be one of the most
important held by that organization in
years, and it is believed that a special
effort will be made to offer such in
ducements to-racers of harness horses
that many will remain in the weat
with their stables' and n?f race' down
the grand circuit.
Georgetown May Drop Crev/.
While nc definite decision bas been
reached as to whether Georgetown will
have a crew at Poughkeepsie, N. Y.\
next year, there Is every reason for
believing that the Washington institu
tion will abandon this expensive fea
ture of its athletics. The Georgetown
athletic fund is in a weakened condi
tion. The football season lulled to
show the usual profits, and it was on
this that Manaor La Platte depended
for the money : necessary to have a
crew next season.
Britt and Summers to Fight A?ain.
Jimmy Britt of America is to have
another tryout; in London to prove
whether or not ^is recent victory over
Johnny Summers was a fluke. ,^'The
men have ' beep/ rematched-'to' battle
before the National Athletic club Feb.
22, and ? purse of ?800, or $4,000 in
American money, has been hiing up.
Britt will prolong his stay in England
to meet the engagement.

colt trotter G?n?ral ' Watts, 2:06%,
bolder of the world's record for trot
ters of that age, will not race his
