Manager Talks of His Club as It
Now Looks.
Ralph McLaurin, crack outfielder
of the Atlanta club of the Southern
league, whom Manager Fred Moore
purchased for the Topeka team re
cently, writes that he has quit base
ball for good. Otherwise he wishes
the Topeka club all the success In the
Moore was banking pretty heavily
on McLaurin, whom he bought
through the Brooklyn club at the rec
ommendation of Larry Sutton, the fa
mous scout. In his letter to Moore
McLaurin gives no reason for quitting
the game. He writes that he would
be delighted to play here If he played
anywhere and wishes Moore a merry
season. He cost $400 and the check
has been sent Atlanta. No bad faith
la, charged on the part of the Atlanta
management- and the money will be
used at the other end of another line
iwhen Moore recovers it.
Perhaps McLaurin does not want to
come north having read of the 10 be
low weather and the gas shortage but
he does not refer to that as any rea
son he simply will not play ball any

Speaking of the reorganized club
as. it will look on assembling In To
peka, Moore said, "The club looks
good to me right now. I am working
en; a few more players but we could
play some fine ball right now.
"We've got Strangle, Kern3 and Gib
Bon for catchers. I believe Strangle
will be able to set the pace for any of
them. You all know what Kerns can
do and Gibson is mighty well recom
mended as a youngster and a comer.
Proud of Pitching Staff. j
"And I'm proud of my pitching
etaff. Frankly I think it is going to
prove the best in the league. Mc
Grath, Alderman and Fugate are well
known here. Beecher, Ovitz, Leak,
Buchanan, Upton and King are new
ones. I know what Beecher can do
and Ovitz Is a comer. Buchanan is
a 'wise' pitcher and knoVs how to
work on a batter. j
''On the outfield, Whitney is a real
first baseman, and they are hard to
find. If I can't earn my place at sec

Quinlin is a fast and. heady short and

I am going to get. Hopke ought to
have no trouble in showing the league
how to play third base,

someone to take the place I had for

The Eastern Kansas League had a
good season last year. The league In
cludes such town as Hiawatha, Blue
Rapids, Marysville and Holton. If
Leavenworth and Atchison would Join
the organization the class of the
league would be greatly improved.
The Leavenworth fans should get
together and send some good baseball
man to the meeting and arrange to
get a franchise in the league as it
could be made to pay. The expense
of a league team in this city would
not be great as the salary limit is low
and there are several suitable parks
that could be used. Baseball will be
patronized the coming season If Leav
enworth gets in this league as there
has been no league baseball In the
city for a number of years.
A number of local baseball men
have said that they thought baseball
could be made to pay In Leavenworth

had to content themselves with ama

W. A. Phelon Believes Third League
Will Find Betas.
Cincinnati, Jan. 7. When that
third league not the Fletcher ghost
dance, but the real and actual article
finally starts to transact business. It
won't, be either a full fledged major
organization, as its advocates assert,
nor a struggling minor outfit attempt
ing to swell up beyond Us caliber. It
will hardly be an outlaw gang, for
that matter. It won't be at war with
organized baseball, and It won't be
tied down to any of the smaller bod
ies that now revolve in the armament
of the National association.
: Critics and fans alike seem to over
look the fact that circumstances and
conditions are changing in baseball.
Certain cities have grown so large
that they have passed beyond the
minor league class, and yet they have
not grown to such a bulk that they
can compete with the greater centers
of the major leagues. The time is ripe
for a new classification of at least two
leagues, but It is not ripe for those
same leagues to proclaim themselves
the full equals of the National and
The American association and the
Eastern league can combine to pro
mote a most powerful circuit, or, re
maining separate, they can Justly ask
a new classification that shall put-
them where the present majors stood
twenty years ago. Major-minors, or
minor-majors you can call tnem
either name, and it fits. There Is no
valid reason why these people should
not have a new combination, grading
far above the rank and file ox the
minors and there is no vana reason
why they should attempt, at one
bound, to claim equality with the big
gest fish In the aquarium'. -
: A third league or' two of them
with some of the clubs located in the
present major league cities, could not
compete with .the present majors
not for years" to- come and for per
fectly comprehensible reasons.
If the new - leagues were formed
peacefully and without any outlaw
business, they could not get tne stars
of the majors; and If" the' r.ew leagues
butted In by force of arms, their
bank rolls would - naraiy stann me
strain of battling in open market with
the older outfits. - In the course of a
few years, the . new minor-majors
would develop stars of their own, but
even then their salary "rolls would re
main lighter than those Of the present
majors. A third team in Chicago, for
example, could hardly afford, even ten
years from now, to pay what Murphy
and Comlskey would be handing to
their men.
There is room for a new state league
pair of leagues standing on a
new level and wholly different from
any present classification. All such
questions as rights of draft and pur
chase could be amicably settled, and
the new. circuit could come into , their
own without delay or trouble. As
things now stand there is too wide a
space between the majors and the
minors a new class of leagues should
fill the vacuum.
St. Joe Player of Topeka Says Ma
terial Is Fine.
Walter Boles, catcher and . utility
player of the St. Joseph club in the
Western league and formerly with the
Topeka team, is in the city expecting
to land a legislative Job. His wife
who has been in ill health for some
time has recovered somewhat but will
remain at home in Fort Worth, Texas,
at least until the baseball season
Boles says the line-up secured for
Topeka by Manager Moore looks good
to him. Hopke, he says, should lead
the league at third and Larry Quinlin
prove a live one on short. In fact,
it looks to Walter as If Topeka would
be a flag contender next season. He
himself expects to remain in Topeka
until the season opens when he will

Washburn Not Admitted to Mis
souri Talley Conference.
But Will Observe Rules as for
Past Seasons. '
No Thanksgiving Games for Con
ference Schools.
Professional Coach Rule Is Ap
proved No Summer Ball.
While Washburn college was nof
granted entrance into the Missouri val
ley athletic conference at Des Moines
Friday, the school will play under Mis
souri valley rules the coming season.
The Kansas Agricultural "college at
Manhattan, which was confident of ad
mission, probably will do the same.
That was the popular student and
team prediction last fall. .
Because she had met the Missouri
valley requirements for the past two
seasons, Washburn thought she should
be permitted to compete for the con
ference championship. It is the strict
enforcement and high standard of the
conference rules which make them
sought as a regulation. There is wide
spread confidence that a team playing
under them tolerates no professional
ism, remuneration or flunking in
studies. They are hard to meet in
entrance and scholarship requirements
but the local college has been doing so
for years past.
: Prof. I. D. Cardiff, faculty repre
sentative on the Washburn athletic
board and eligibility censor, attended
the Des Moines meeting summoned by
the valley conference. It was thought
one school would be admitted and
Washburn seemed to be the most like
ly one.
Before going to the meeting Pro
fessor Cardiff said: "Whether Wash
burn is taken into the conference or
not, we will play under those rules.
We have always met them in our game
with Kansas university and have built
our teams on ' that basis. That gave
many smaller teams, who do and can
not meet the requirements, an advant
age over us on the gridiron. But we
have contended that in the end it is
a good sacrifice of strength for a time.
Eventually we will be included in the
conference,. I think, and that is the
class the college is trying to main
tain." "I believe Washburn ought to play
under the Missouri valley rules," said
W. L. Driver, physical director at the
college, and a former famous Tiger
end. "We meet the requirements and
might as well be included in the con
ference so that we could contest for
the valley championship and play with
conference officials and censored eligi
bility lists."
The most drastic action character
ized the conference meeting. A sweep
ing rule resulted on every question
brought before the tribunal. Many
had been thrashed out during the sea
son and since.
The present rules are given an O. K.
There will be no more Thanksgiving
Games will all be played on college
No short term professional coaches.
No summer baseball where admis
sion is charged.
Not a college was granted admis
sion. The Thanksgiving game rule finally
settles the question whether Missouri
and Kansas will play in Kansas City.
There are some exceptions to the
rules as mentioned in the Des Moines
It is not expected either Washburn
or Manhattan would observe other
than the eligibility and entrance rules,
but will play on Thanksgiving and on
any grounds selected.
The Stand Pat Meeting.
Des Moines, la., Jan. 7. "Standing
pat" on the football reform rulel
adopted by them one year ago, with
one exception, and also upon the
question of summer .baseball, with one
exception, the members of the Mis
souri "Valley Athletic conference con
cluded their annual meeting here last
evening. I. Ross Hill, president of
Missouri university, was chosen chair
man of the meeting which will be held
at Lincoln next year. E. W. Stan
ton of the Iowa Agricultural college
was chosen secretary.
As the result of the practical pass
ing out of control to faculty repre
sentatives today, football will be ta
bood on Thanksgiving day in the Mis
souri valley, with the exception of the
game between Drake university of Des
Moines and the Iowa State college at
Ames, which schools are under con
tract to play one more Thanksgiving
day game. All college games in the
future must be played upon college
grounds, preventing the meeting of
Kansas and Missouri universities at
Kansas City.
The University of Iowa was given a
year's reprieve In the question of short
term professional coaches, members of
the board of education appearing be
fore the conference and stating that
a coach already had been employed
for the coming fall.
Faculty representatives also stood pat
on the question of summer baseball,
with the exception that it was agreed
that a college man may play baseball
in games to which no admission Is
The members of the conference also
voted to incorporate the Missouri Val
ley . conference and to make changes
in the eligibility blanks used in certi
fying eligibility. The petitions of
Kansas Agricultural college at Man
hattan and Washburn college at To
peka, for admission to the conference
were discussed, but it was decided
best to admit no other schools at the
present time.

Other Items of General Inter
est in Traffic World.
Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 7. Los An
geles and the Pacific will have a new
short rail route to Galveston and the
Gulf of Mexico by August 1 by the
construction of a new cutoff between
Texlco on the Belen line of the Santa
Fe and Coleman on the Gulf line of
the same road. The line between Tex
ico and Coleman is nearly 300 miles
long and the distance saved by its
construction over the present Santa
Fe route from Los Angeles to the
Gulf is 609 miles.
It was announced that this cv.toff
would be built two years ago and the
line was surveyed and part of it built.
Then construction lagged. Now orders
have been Issued to rush the comple
tion of the line and have It ready for
the operating department by August 1.
The first step in tne sania t es pro
gram for a line from the Pacific to the
Gulf was the construction o' the Belen
cutoff, a low grade line from Belen to
Clovis. N. M.. 279 miles. This was
the crowning achievement in the ca
reer of the late James JS. uriey, gen
eral manager of the Santa Fe. Then
a line from Texico, 35 miles east from
Clovis,. was planned. It was proposed
to build this line to a connection with
the Gulf line at Temple.
Substantial progress was made dur
ing the fiscal year ending June 80,
last, 45 miles immediately southeast
of Lubbock being completed and 155
miles of the remaining distance be
tween Lubbock an'd Coleman . being
graded and made ready for track
work. The line from Coleman to
Temple already is built and in opera
tion. Branch lines have been built,
from Plainview to Lubbock, 46 miles,
and from Plainview to Floydava, 25
miles. These lines are In operation.
Other branches have been projected
and now are in process of construction.
Thn nresent route for traffic from
T-ns Ansreles to Galveston over the
Santa Fe is via the Coast Lines from
T.OS Anareles to Albuquerque, thence
over the Belen cutoff to Newton, Kan.,
and then south to Galveston. The
miiatrn of the nresent route is 2,359
mllpsi while the new route will be
nniv tuts miles long.
wprstofnrs the only through line
frnm Tia Ansreles to the Gulf has been
Mm Southern Pacific 1,697 miles. The
Santa Fe naturallv will furnish a com
rmtltor for the Southern Pacific. The
Santa Fe la 14 8 miles longer than the
Southern Pacific, but this difference is
partly overcome by reason of the
Santa Fe'e lower grade.
The Santa Fe also soon will prove
a strong competitor to the southern
Pacific into New Orleans. From a
noint on the Gulf line between Temple
and Galveston, Somerville, the Santa
Fe is building east to New Orleans
and expected to be in the Gulf metro-
polls within two years.

Traffic Agreements Reached Between
. Two Roads.
-' Denver, Jan. 7.- The Western Pa
cific, the Pacific coast extension of the
Denver & Rio Grande railroad, has ef
fected an entrance into the general
tourist business of the west through
agreements entered into with the
Santa Fe system for the interchange of
business. Heretofore it has been bot
tled up at San Francisco on the rout
ing of round trip tickets from eastern
points and could sell theae tickets good
only over Its two lines both ways.
"We will in future be able to route
business over the Western Pacific, one
way and over the danta Fe in the op
posite direction," said F. A. Wadleigh,
general passenger agent ot the Den
ver & Rio Grande.
"We will also reach Seattle, Port
land and the northwest through ar
rangements with the Pacific Steamship
company. The arrangements with the
Santa Fe and the steamship lines en
ables us to give the tourists a variety
of routes and a choice of destinations
which were not possible under the old
Mr. Wadleigh would not commit
himself on the effect of this agreement
on the relations between the Western
Pacific and the Harriman lines. It Is
expected, however, that the Southern
Pacific and Union Pacific, which have
held aloof from any arrangements for
thj routing of round trip tourist busi
ness over the Gould lines since the
Western Pacific was placed in opera
tion, will be forced to open the way
for the new line to share in the bene
fits of the Interchange principle.

Baltimore & Ohio Effects Saving
Conductors Didn't Like It.
Baltimpre, Md., Jan. 7. Following
swiftly upon' the retirement from the
Baltimore & Ohio railroad of George
L. Potter, as third vice president and
general manager, has come the an
nouncement that one of Mr. Potter's
pet systems is being abolished, and
that the company will be able to dis
pense with the large force of men
needed for it.
It is the system of train auditing,
which is to be ended so abrupty, and
from fifty to sixty men known as train
auditors will lose their positions. The
order abolishing some of these posi
tions was issued immediately upon Mr.
Potter's retirement. This action, it is
said, .will result in a saving of more
than $60,000 a year In salaries.
Train auditors were unknown on the
Baltimore & Ohio until they were in
stalled by Mr. Potter about five or six
years ago. The duties of the officials,
it was then announced, would be to
collect tickets and attend to the cleri
cal work which formerly fell upon the
conductors. The latter officials, it was
explained, would be relieved of much
of the detail of their positions and
would have more time to give to the
safety of the train and the passengers
in their charge.
Mr. Potter had been familiar with
the work of these new officials In the
west, where they were known as train
inspectors. They were only assigned
to the heavy through trains. They
were well established in the west, but
from the first they proved, it is stated,
a constant source of irritation on the
Baltimore & Ohio.
The conductors resented the pres
ence of the new men, whom they re
ferred to as "spotters " and it was
claimed that the system did not work
smoothly and did not have the effect
of relieving the conductor of any im
portant duties. But Mr. Potter be
lieved in the system, and as long as he
remained with the road the system
was continued.
