While tlie circuits of th? two organiza tions have not been completely made up and are now in the course of construction, yet New York is regarded as such a gold mine for basehall that on?; league already has decided to place two clubs In this city. The United State? League will put teams In Brooklyn and New York. These nines, with th? ("?lants. Yankees and Su perbas, will bring the total In the greater City up to five. The rest of the United Stat.s League, circuit will Include Cindre* nati.

Th?- or? ganisation will undoubtedly rind that it will have : .. small light "H Its hands The Columbian League Is largely a West? ern affair, but there Is a possibility of New York being included in the circuit, and if so the clubs of the greater city will be brought up t" six. The American Leaf : and the American Association will be the organisations to suffer the most if the Columbian league gets a good start. A third club for St. lxiuls and Chicago la' planned, and only hen? will the National League be affected. Th.- other four eitles already chosen for the circuit are Detroit, Of th?' American League, and Kansas <'ity, Milwaukee and Louisville, of the American Association. The cltU-s under consideration include Cleveland, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Peor?a, Minne? apolis and St. Paul.
