Theo. St. Peter attended a meeting
of the Salina good roads enthusiasts
Tuesday night and tried to land the
job of working the roads the com.
merclal club proposes to Improve.
The Union says:
T. St. Peter, road builder, was pres
ent from Dickinson county. He is the
builder of the Enterprise road, a
famous stretch of road between Abi
lene and Enterprise. It Is three miles
I can make a good road as easily
as I can a bad one," said St. Peter.
Early in the spring is the time to put
the roads into shape. First, clean out
the ditches and burn the trash and
then level the roads. People won't
believe it, but I can make good roads
faster and better with a sled than I
can with a grader. All the grader is
good for Is to shape the road. Then I
don't touch the grader any more that
year. I can easily take care of twenty-
five miles of road with four teams
and keep it up in season.
The Enterprise road I built for
$160. I made $2.50 profit on the
whole Job. I built that road simply
to show the peop,e what could be
done in the way of road making.
Inat was three years ago and since
that time the road has not been
toucled., let it is still in excellent
H. . ee, who brought Mr. St.
Peter from Dickinson county, stated
that he had lately driven over the
Enterprise road and that It was as
fine as any Kansas City boulevard.
Mr. Ktrtland said he has also taken
a spin over the road In an auto last
fall and found It in exellent shape.
At that point Fred. Quincy called
attention to a new law. He said the
law provided for the appointment of
a county engineer to oversee all road
matters in the county. The town
ships, however, could limit the work
as they saw fit. The county survey
or may be appointed to this position.
Mr. Quincy said It would be neces
sary to get the consent of the town
ships as well as the engineer before
private contractors could take care
of the road.
In Saline county the road engineer
has not yet been appointed.
Some wanted to hire St. Peter that
night to build roads. Mr. Watson
and others favored, the offering of
Finally on motion of Mr. Kimball,
a committee consisting of H. D. Lee,
W. W. Watson and F. H. Quincy was
appointed to devise plans for road
Improvement. These plans are to be
submitted to those who subscribed to
the road fund and. If the plans are
satisfactory, the committee will be
employed to go on with the work,

settled the matter of season tickets
at a meeting held last evening. Sea
son tickets will be sold to men good
for admission to both ground and
grand stand for $10. This ticket Is
good for all the 35 game of the
bamplonsblp series and single ad
missions to all of these games would
amount to $12.25. In addition to
this there will be a Decoration day
game and probably five first class
exhibition games during the practice
season before the championship ser
ies opens. These extra game would
cost at single admissions $2.10 more.
The holder of a season ticket will al
so be admitted to these games. The
season ticket admits the holder to
all games given by the association
to the end of the championship
son, so It may be seen that the man
who buys a season ticket gets $14,35
worth of baseball for $10.00.

The association wants the support
and encouragement of the fairer sex
and Is making a strong bid to secure
It. Ladies' season tickets carrying all
the privilege of the men' season
tickets will be sold for $7.60. All
season tickets will be transferable
but they will have a space for the
signature of the owner so that ticket
may be taken up at the gate In the
event that it should be lost. There
may be some men who do not car IV
for a season ticket Including admis
sion to the grand stand and It Is
probable that a season ticket good
for grounds wi.i be sold for $7.60;
but this matter has not been positive
ly decided.
Jl Jl
It may as well be understood first
as last that with just one exception
there will be no free list. The men
who made baseball possible In Abl'
lene guaranteed $25 to see the sea'
son carried through and they have
put up all of the mxney that has thus
fur been called far. A certificate of
stock and a season ti':ct was Usued
to them. This opportunity was of
fered to everyone and it is still open.
Every stockholder and every officer
who gets any additional tickets vill
pay for them. Two tickets will be
Issued to every newspaper in the
county and the association will re
ceive more for them thany any other
tickets it disposes of. Just one free
ticket will be Issued and that one
will go to R. W. Hoffman, of Enter
prise, president of the league.
The association will conduct a cotf-'l
test and will give two prizes, $10 In
gold and one season ticket, to the
two ladles turning in the largest
amount of money from the sale of
season tickets. A commission wlii
also be paid on each ticket sold. Full
details of the. contest will be an.
nounced later.

The association has now the sig
natures of about fifteen players on
contracts and there are two or three
contracts out that have not yet been
returned " The board of directors Is
much pleased with present conditions.

The Junction City management Is
Interested in knowing how the re

that Doherty, the Fort Riley pitcher,

during the season. ,

Salina Union: One thing can be
said In favor of Abilene; it will have
a lot of enthusiastic and pretty girls
who will fight to a finish for that
team. A Union reporter met a bunch
of Abilene girls Sunday and they
were absolutely baseball crazy. Tbey
were willing to bet anything that
Abilene would win the pennant.

It will probably be pretty dull In
Mid-Kaw baseball circles now until
the players begin to report for prac
tice. Most of tne team have sign

Salina Union: The press and
preachers only will be given passes
In the Central Kansas league. Fav
orites will have to pay the same as
other people. The courtesy of a
pass Is generally extended to minis
ters while, because of the fact that
the press Is compelled to properly
report the games, It Is only fair that
tbey shduld receive passes. And they
give. In free writeups, a whole lot
more than their ticket would cost.

Junction City Is to hare a tip top
official scorer. Tom Dorn ha been
named for the place by President
Hoffman, at the recommendation of
officials of the local association. Dorn
1 a thorough fan and has been a
clow student of the game for many
year. He will be an nnusuany com
petent official scorer. Mr. Hoffman
seem to have the faculty of getting
exactly the right men for the official I
positions and he I exactly the
right man for the place he hold.

The player are perhaps more in
terested In the selection of official
scorers than are the fans. The scor
ers make up the records from which
the Individual fielding and batting
averages are figured for the season.
These averages are looked to by man
ager the country over as Indicating
the class of the players. However,
there are a few exception to this
proposition as a general rule. Oc
caslonally a man compiles a batting
average of 350 In one of the minor
leagues. He goes higher and It de
velops that 225 really expresses his
altual batting speed. The reason is
easy. He has been a favorite with
one of two scorers In the lower lea
gue class and tbey bare been credit
ing with safe hits, when instead
some fielder on the opposing team
should have been charged with an
error. When the scoring rule are
fairly applied to the batting of the
favorite player his average shrinks
and he soon goes back to the brush
league In which his average was pad
ded. It I to be hoped that there will
be a minimum of that sort of work
on this curcult. junction uuy un
