Some misgivings have been express
ed as to the, effect of the understand
ing reached between President M. H.
Sexton of the Three-Eye league and
President R. F, Kinsella of the Spring
field team at the capital last . week.
Manager Donnelly of Peoria, in partite
ular, ' is ' quoted ' as saying ; he feared
that Kinsella would be allowed to re
tain his high priced players till June
l; and would therefore have an advan
tage in the getaway.- However, Presi
dent Bartson of Peoria is prepared to
set Donnelly right, if he is correctly
quoted in the following in the Peoria
"No concessions whatever were made
id Dick Kinsella of the Springfield club
at the conference at Springfield and
Decatur last week," declared Charles
Bartson, president of the Peoria base-
jball association, upon his return home
Saturday. "But I do want to say right
here," he continued "that the directors
of the league have decided that, after
having given the $1,G00 salary limit a
fair and impartial trial, they find they
are not affording the fans the class of
ball that has been had in past seasons,
certain changes may be made in the
salary clause of the constitution. These
changes, however, will not be made at
the dictation of Dick Kinsella or any
one man. They will only be brought
about after a majority of the league di
rectors have jcxpresscd themselves as
Tbink It Good Enough. '
Every, director in the Three-Eye
league, with the possible exception of
Kinsella. is convinced that the Three
Eye league can furnish baseball up to
the usual standard under the salary
limit that has been adopted. Kinsella
has agreed to give the plan a fair
trial, and not until' wc are convinced
that we are wrong in our calculations
will we make a change. We expect to
furnish just as good baseball as in sea
sons past, if not better, but wc pro
pose, in addition, to conduct the league
along more business like principles
and to pull some of the weaker clubs
out of the rut into which they have
fallen through the paying of exorbi
taut salaries to players."
Kcpiircliaxex Dick Smith.
Dick Smitn, it is no stated, will
more than likely be a member of the
Springfield team again next season
He has been purchased from Minne
apolis, by which team he was drafted
lact fall. Minneapolis has secured
Warren Gill to cover first and so has
no use for Dick. Manager McCarthy
expects Smith to sign for $150 rather
than become an outlaw, and will make
him field captain if he does.
