FACING CLUB MEN
New York. Feb. 26 Club owners
of the International Baseball league
are said to be facing a serious sit
uation because of the enforcement
of a new salary limit of $t000 a
month for each club as compured with
$80uo last year. With the exception
of the Newark club, which has signed
all its men, the entire circuit is re
ported In difficulties because of "hold
cuts " players generally demanding
more rather than less salary. Only
eight of the Jersey City club men
In Rochester the situation is such
that C. T. Chapin, the club owner,
has issued hy telegraph an ultimat
um to the players that unless they
come into the fold by next Saturday
they will be suspended for the rest
of the year.
The $60"0 salary limit, is one fixed
by the national association of minor
leagues and approved recently b the
national baseball commission against
protests of President Barrow of the
league Fnder the circumstances the
club owners declare they are power
less as they have offered their recal
citrant plavers as much us possi-b.e.

of the New York Garden Athletic club
that he had signed articles, also that
he would be here to begin training
for the lu-round bout with Bombar

expected that he will put up a smash

Smith Is a former able seaman in
Uncle Sam's navy and isn't afraid of a

lost a fight on a decision by a refer

a kick in his right hand that is liable
to stop anybody If It lands, and he

Opposition to the plan to allot ref
ereea to boxing clubs without con
sulting promoters has become so in
tense all over the slate that the box
ing commission probably will take no
further action It is said that upstate
promoters have enlisted the support
oi politicians In their objection to the I
present rule, with the result that
i In eats have been made to repeal the
boxing law unless the matter Is drop
ped. When the commission first decided
to favor this plan the stirring up of I
a hornet's nest was not expected. It
Is said There isn't a doubt but that
the enforcement of this rule would
have caused endless complications to
the detriment of the boxing game
