The 4 4 reason for the declaration was the announcement in Helena that 4 4 Flannery had secured Thomas E. It.lly, who pitched for the Spokane 4 4 team last year. 4 4, "I've got Kelly," declared the Butte manager. "I've had him for 4t 4 some time.

I arq in among the fastest and hardest 4 4 bunch of hitters I have been connected with in years. With Zearf 'o,, 4 4 Ward, Kane, Kelly, Marshall. Treadway and Houtl, Butte has car 4, tainly got the greatest bunch of hitters I have ever seen together in 4 4 a minor league. They will certainly ee known at Butte's big batters 4 4 this year. They are all cracks with the stick and I don't envy the 4 4 pitchers of the league when the lineap starts In." 4, 4, "I didn't sign the other two pitchers," said McCloskey, "because 4, 4 they wanted too much money for us to stand with the salary limit 4 4 working. I will announce my selections within B day or two. I shall 4 4 probably take on a few youngsters and try them out and possibly de- 0 4 velop a couple of good ones." 4 4, Transportation is being sent Out now to the players signed and 4 4 some of them will arrive in Butte this week.
