THE ROCK ISKAND ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1913.
POT UP $22,400
Comiskey and McGraw Post
Coin to Cover Transportation
on Long Trip.
One-half of the money to cover the
transportation of the globe-girdling
White Sox and Giants from Vancou
ver to Port Said has been delivered
into the keeping of the steamship com
pany which has contracted to carry
75 tourists' to the Tar east Several
weeks ago . the first installment
$11.200 was paid by President
Charles A. Comiskey of the Sox and
Manager John J. McGraw of the
Giants. At a second meeting of these
baseball men yesterday another check
was written. for $11,200. On Oct. 10
the third and last payment of $22,400
will be made, the total amount, $44,800,
to be ' applied toward the expenses
of the party to Port Said.
That this colossal undertaking is
one in which a fortune must be ex
pended to carry out the plans laid
down by the promoting forces is evi
dent from the fact that both Comis
key and -McGraw will be prepared to
write additional checks for $100,000
more to defray expenses from Port
Said through the last laps of the world
tour. Advance Agent Bunnell, who
was in Europe, has attended to this
detail and will have the necessary
transportation In hand before the pil
grims alight In Egypt
According to information advanced
Monday by President Comiskey, there
will be 50 persons in his party when
the steamboat sails from Vancouver,
Nov. 19. The New York delegation
will number 25. Each tourist's fara
on the long expedition will amount
to at least $1,500, as the officials have
estimated, but there will be count
less minor expenses. Each ' player
making the trip will be assessed $300,
this amount to guarantee his appear
ance on the ship, but the money will
be refunded when the steamer lifts
anchor in the harbor of Vancouver
and rolls out to sea.
No small part of the money needed
to cover the expenses of the trip will
be picked up at the various cities of
the United States to be visited by
the teams before they reach Vancou
ver. Both the Sox and Giants will
carry added attractions in the persons
of stars of other major league teams
and fans of the cities where thu tour
ists will play are. expected to turn
out strong. Nineteen of these games
had been looked prior to yest-rday,
and now comes Blue Rapids, Kan., a
hustling town near Tooeka, esklng
that the teams put on a contest there.
President Comiskey has agreed to
give the Blue Rapids rooting society
the game desired.
