believe that the canal Improvement
measure will be favorably acted upon
by the legiaiatlve commiltees. The
Impression left upon the members of
the two committees was better than
had been hoped for. To a large ex
tent, the canal commissioners feel
this waa due to the presence of your
self and your friends at the state capi
tal. They wish me to express their
appreciation for the generous loan of
your time, energies and influence to
the cause and to convey their regret
that the limitations of time made it
Impossible for you to address the com-
mu;?es in person. ery truly yours,!

Joe Berger made his second bow to
the White Sox fans yesterday p. in.
He scored one run, stole home, wait
ed three times for free transportation
to first and accepted three chances fa
vorably. Net bad. Some ono handed
Heinle the information that when it
came to waiting Morris Kath was a
kcorker. Now, Joe vftints Rath's job.
He figured that if he could beat Morris
at his own game, that of displaying
patience and excellent oypsircht at the
plate, and then top him in hitting, he
should win out. Berg?r walked threo
times in tho conflict. Not he delies
anyone to say that ho isn't the equal
