There is reason to believe that the
fabillous prices paid the star profes
slei1al Ice hockey players In Canada
list winter which made many old
tirets4gaap will be surpassed before
the pHnf season is passed Into the
well filled annals of the sport across
the border Had It not been for the
hockey war between the Canadian
Hockey aociatlon and the National
Hockey association the flguros estab
lished last year might have stood unus
sailed but tinder present conditions
and Jodginfc from the reports about
the large suns of money already there
+ k te every reason to believe that the
professional hockey players of the Do
rotation will reap a harvest
The hockey players life that is his
period of usefulness in the fast and
strenuous professional sa meIs com
paratively short and he must grab all
k
the money he can while he Is a star
Like baseball many of these men en
ter the sport to gather enough funds
to start them in business and many
of them have made good
d a The prices paid these players appear
on the surface to be enormous and as
a matter of fact they are but when
i the great risk of personal and serious
injury taken by the puck chasers Is
considered they are worth all they can

This is in no way advocating the
Jumping of contracts so much in
vogue at the present time Although
there is no governing body a player
certainly should honor any contract
which he is under unless it be unfair
Until the war has been settled and
one or other of the organizations has
taken the final count there does not
appear to be a chance of any commis
sion with the same powers as the na
tional commission of baseball being
l formed But just as soon as this strife
is over the agitation among hockey
promoters Is so strong that a commis
a sion will be appointed add rules and
regulations drafted which will make
the professional hockey players honor
their contracts and will restrict club
owners from stealing player There
will be a drafting season and one for
the purchasing of players Under
these Improved conditions hockey Is
bound to become the leading winter
pastlflfb not only of Canada but of
this country as well
Marty Walsh who Is conceded to be
one of the best forwards In the Domin
ion has received an offer of 2500 for
ten weeks play a bonus of 200 if he
plays the complete season and the
guarantee of a position ut 1200 per
annum good the year round from the
Renfrew Hockey club Renfrew Is
backed by millionaires who are doing
their best to get together a team which
will wrest the Stanley cup from the
Ottawas and they are going the limit
at offering big money to the hockey
players to get them to sign up with
that team
Fred Taylor the great cover point of
the Ottawa seven has received an of
fer very similar but has turned It
down lIe was to get 2000 for ten
weeks play and a position at a salary
of 1200 a year
The average salary paid the profes
sional hockey player in the Dominion
for about nine weeks play Is probably
1COO but there are several lumina
ries at puck chasing who are com
pensated for their services in much
larger checks Some draw as high as
2000 for the season
It Is generally conceded that the a
cm baseball player receives a sti
pend of about 3000 a season for near
ly seven months daily work Hockey
Is too strenuous a game to request a
man to play It every night and when
all this time Is taken into considera
tion it will be found that the salaries
paid hockey players touch a higher
mark than the given the ball tossers

THE UMP WILL BE BOSS

Lynch New Baseball Head Will Sup
port Umpires
The umpire Is going to be the big
thing in baseball next season Tom
Lynch the newly elected president of
the National league was an umpire
himself and naturally his sympathies
are with the man who holds the in
dicator the man on whom for years
both players and the fans have heaped
their wrath and ridicule
Although Mr Lynch isnt ready to
discuss the subject of umpires in de
tail he doesnt hesitate to say that
conditions today on the ball field are
much different from those of the old
days The umpires job Is easier now
and the players arent so hard to han
dle 4No umpire says Mr Lynch
makes a wrong decision purposely
He decides plays honestly as he sees
them and that is as much as any
body can expect
Lynch Is a believer In the old single
umpire system for the reason that It
THOMAS J LYNCH NEW PRESIDENT OF
NATIONAL LEAGUE
doesnt divide authority on the ball
field but he says rheas no chance of
going back to it
The double system must stay now
he says The public wouldnt stand
for a change back to the old days
Lynch is built Close to the ground
sh < rt stocky and strong Sharp eyed 1
hair of iron gray a face that shows a
ruddy tau of a man that has been
years out iu the open under rays of
many a summers s sun and a voice that
suggests strength and finality of pur
pose he impresses one as a man who
is boss of the works no matter what
the nature of the works
A great deal lias been written of the
dignity of Lynch when he was an um
pire and of the respect he demanded
from the players This was no false
show on Lynehs part As old timers
will tell you he was a wan and de
manded to be treated as a man An ex
ample of Lynehs manhood is shown
by the speech lie made to the grand
stand the day he dropped Jack Dole
cold with a punch on the Jaw when the
old New York first baseman rushed at
him fiercely In protesting a decision
Just before the next days game start
ed Lynch turning fb the grand stand
took on his hat and addressed the
fans in this strain
Ladies and Gentlemen sincerely ask
your pardon for my breach of propriety
yesterday While I am only human 1
realize that as an umpire It Is my dviy
to uphold my dignity and that of the
game I trust you jvill let my future con
duct atone for my regrettable action

Another incident of his career as an
umpire In Chicago back in 1SSG Is re
called
A G Spalding the famous maker of
sporting goods sat in a box at the
game and naturally was rooting for
Chicago Mrs Lynch sat In the same
box as MfSpaldings guest The game
was close and exciting and at one
stage Lynch made a decision which
beat Chicago Mr Spalding was very
much disappointed at the defeat of the
team and when Lynch met him in
that box later Mr Spaldlng remarked
that the decision was very unfortunate
and let it go at that
