The announc.-ment last night that per misslon had been granted .loe Tinker to negotlats with the Clndnnatl manage ment regardlng the leadershlp of that team ellmlnated the shortstop from the llst of those whom rumor had named aa Chance's successor. It alao served to strengthen the belief tnat Evers would get the place. and practlcal conflrmation that such was the correct guess came to day. It was authoritatlvely announced that Evers would sign his contract as manager to-morrow. The ceremony had been planned for to-day, but members of the team are on a "barnstormlng" trlp, and Murphy consented to the postponement to allow Evers to keep hls engagement aa a player. What terms the contract wlll carry could not be learned. Evers's home ia ln Troy. N. Y. He came to the local Natlonal Eeague team ln 19W. and after a brlef career aa a util? ity player was made reguiar aecond base? man.
