Harry Vaughan Is In town!
The manager of the baseball team
reached the city yesterday morning, and
his bulky figure wended its way up Twen
tieth street without a thought except to
locate a place to clean up and get break
fast. But the fans were alert. Some one
saw him first, and forthwith claimed the
honor. Others were not far behind.
By the time Harry reached Second ave
nue there was somthlng that looked like
a circus parade following him. Finally,
he Jumped on a car, and rode several
squares with the Intention of dodging
his enthusiastic clientele. But the con
ductor unconsciously spoiled the Intended
"Hello, Mr. Vaughan," he said. “I am
glad to see you are back with us again."
Instantly every eye In the car was
glued upon Harry. The big and bashful
manager flushed and stammered under
the scrutiny. Then he Jumped off that
car and boarded another that was pass
ing. He did not hall the motorman, but
nimbly swung upon the rear platform,
and resolutely turned his face Into the
off corner, handing his fare to the con
ductor In a backward sort of fashion.
Several blocks were thus traversed, and
then, with a sigh of relief, the boarding
house appeared in view, and grip in one
hand, batbag in another, Harry swung oft
the oar, and with a running start en
tered the hall and closed the door behind
Advance Season Opens.
With the arrival of Manager Vaughan,
the advance season in Birmingham is de
clared open. Any fan can now make all
the guesses he pleases about anything
that appertains to the great national
game. Nobody will keep any record of
the guesses made, so there will be no
Vaughan appears to be In fine form
and In excellent health. He is the same
ruddy-faced stalwart man that covered
first base or lined the necessary drive
over second during the past few seasons
here, and on that account was easily
recognized by any and every body yester
Vaughan is here to remain until after I
the close of the season of 1906. Except i
for the trips with the team to carry out
the schedule's requirements, he will be
in Birmingham until late in November.
There is much work to be done before
the season officially opens, and Vaughan's
presence on the scene of activities means i
that the players will soon turn up and
start active preparation.
A Winning Team.
"I have a winning team this season,"
was the greeting of the manager to the
Age-Herald reporter yesterday. "I do
not make any claim to championship
form, as I leave the fans themselves to
judge. But I say now and 1 am willing
to allow time Itself to prove the strength
of my argument that the Coal Barons
are going to set the hottest kind of a pace
in the Southern league this season, and
the club that beats them out is going to
be mighty near the top of the column.
"I have signed the fastest outfield In
the south, and one which ranks almost
as high as any in the country, both in
fielding and in fitting. Dale Gear will
cover the left garden. ‘Doc’ Molesworth
will be in center and Smith will take
care of the crops In right pasture. Think
that is a fast bunch? Those three men
will each hit 3(X) or more, and the best
of it is they will hit just when the little
bingle will bring a tally across the rub
"I received Dale Gear's contract this
morning and it made me feel good. It
was a good omen, getting such pleasant i
news on the first day of my arrival here,
and I am hoping it will continue to break
nice like that for the local club all season.
Miles Case Not Settled.
"I have heard nothing so far relative
to Niles. I have signed Bruce Hayes to
cover second base and have strings out
on one or two other men for the same
position, so that 1 will have several men
to try out If Niles should not come to us.
Hayes comes pretty well recommended
and has played some nice ball. I am go
ing to give him a good try-out, as I have
an idea he may be there with the goods.
He is In New Orleans, his home, at this
time, but learned his primary lessons at
j the game with the old City league in *^o
| bile, which turned out some good players
in the past.
"The only shortstop I have so far is
young Oyler, who was drafted from
Savannah. I believe he will make good
with us, but shall not overlook anything
that looks good for the shortfleld.
"I am corresponding with two or three
mighty fine men to play the Initial sack
for us when I stay on the bench. The re
sult of the correspondence is in doubt so
far but I expect to be able to make on
announcement on this matter in a short
"Matthews and Garvin have already
sent in their contracts, and will do the
catching. Three or four other men for
the same position are in view, and I
may get one of them If I think best. Gar
vin was with JLittle Rock for a while
last summer, as the fans will remember.
"I 'have sold Hennessey and Clarke
to Scranton, Pa. 1 am trying to sell some
other contract jumpers that belong to us,
and hope to get rid of them all in that
"Montgomery will cover third base. He
is practically In condition already. He is
living in Birmingham now, has been here
all winter and expects to make this his
home in the future.
Tamsett Not Wanted.
“You oan say definitely and positively
right now that Tamsett will not be with
the team this season. There is only one
chance for him to play with the Coal
Barons, and that is for all the other avail
able men to be out of our reach because
of accidents or other untoward circum
stances. I do not want Tamsett on the
•’As for thespltching staff, It is hard
ly necessary to do move than mention
names: ‘Ginger’ Clark, ’Rip’ R'agan, Des
sau, Sallee, Dylan t, Ballard, Johnson and
Utter. Eight pitchers, five of whom have
already signed, and men that have shown
excellent ability. Ballard is a man I ob
tained from Worcester, Mass. Johnson is
from 8an Franclsoo, and Utter is a col
lege boy of Ohio, who has done very good
work. These two men I expect will send
In their signed contracts within a short
“There lg not much more to be said
about the players, is there? They will be
gin to show up in two or three weeks,
and will start practice. The fans will have
aji opportunity to see them at work,
and the favorites can be selected and
played as heavily as the talent desires.”
The Score Cards.
An announcement of general interest
made by Manager Vaughan was to the
effect that he would personally take
charge of the score cards this season.
“In the past,” he said, ‘‘the score cards
have not given general satisfaction, but
in the future everybody will get what is
wanted in that line. I shall make it my
business to Bee that the score cards
contain the proper information for the
fans, that the line-ups are correct, and
that everything is so arranged as to be
of some service to the fans. The score
cards will no longer be distributed free
of charge, but will be sold at a small
price, as is done in every other league
town In this country.”
Manager Vaughan said he had not vis
ited the grounds, but would do so In a
day or two. He will take charge of the
necessary work out there and will have
everything put into first-class shape at
the earliest possible moment.
The Business Manager.
Questioned relative to the announce
ment that he had signed Clarence Hug
gins to act as business manager of the
club, Manager Vaughan stated that the
report was somewhat premature.
“I did not desire to take it upon myself
to employ Huggins,” he said, “but ar
ranged with him to leave t/he matter to
the directors of the club. Huggins is a
brother to Miller Huggins of Cincinnati,
the second baseman, and was for four
or five years business manager of the St.
Paul club in the American association.
He is Just the sort of man that is needed
in Birmingham; practical and experienced
in the work. I am unable to look after
the business Interests and the field at
the same time and shall try to have
Huggins named as business manager of
the club. Every other club in the league
has a business manager, and Birmingham
has no excuse to offer for having none.”
Charles G. Stone Challenges Any
White Man Who Is a Professional
On Any Reasonable Conditions.
Charles G. Stone, professional wrestler,
last nljrht repeated his challenge to wrestle
with any man in the world, for any purse,
at any weight and under any reasonabla
Stone said that he had heard rumors
of an acceptance to his challenge by
"Kid” Murphy of Cleveland, but up to a
late hour he had received no notice of
any acceptance. He said he has been in
Birmingham two weeks or more and so 1
far had been unable to arrange a match
with any one.
"I bar nobody who la white. I would
rather wrestle at catch as catch can, and
to weigh between 209 and 211 on the mat.
1 will not meet any man who Is not a
professional, as It would be anything near
an equal proposition. 1 would prefer to
wrestle at the Birmingham Athletic club.
"In the recent past 1 have met such
men as Carl Metzan of Minneapolis, Leo

Cleveland, Wilt Maynard, Tom Hallett
and others of that class. I can be ad

Want Him to Stay at Home.
In connection with the discharge of
Captain Langdon Bowie of Rome as su
perintendent of the Confederate Soldiers'
home, the home trustees passed a resolu
tion to the effect that while they did not
desire to restrict the liberty of the old
veterans any more than necessary, they
are opposed to any large number of the
Inmates leaving the home at night or of
the officers being absent at that time for
fear of fire and disaster to the more in
firm inmates.
It is said to have been Captain Bowie's
action in permitting a large number of
the veterans to come into the city to at
tend a political meeting that caused the
action of the board. Captain Bowie's
friends deny that he was responsible for
this occurrence.
Capt. W. M. Thompson, who was chosen
superintendent to succeed him, is a former
| Atlanta police officer and a well known
Confederate veteran. It Is thought he will
make an able and an acceptable officer.
The report of the treasurer showed that
It cost exactly $117.04 per inmate per year
to maintain those in the home.
The trustees decided to employ the ser
vices of an expert gardener to beautify
the grounds around the home.
