I BIRMINGHAM, ALA. 1 __ ^ ONE ESTIMATE Of HOW TEAMS LOON Birmingham, Atlanta, Memphis, New Orleans First Division NASHVILLE TOMORROW The Regular Southern League Season Will Open Here Wednesday, With Wilhelm pitching for the Barons—Diamond Glints. BY WILSON MATTHEWS. In response to requests for an opinion as to how the relative chances of the different Southern League club members to finish one-two-eight at the end of the present season, the writer who has been grinding out baseball Junk here for the past three weeks gives out the follow ing: On present form Atlanta looks a shade the best, with Memphis and Birmingham | having a splendid odds-on favorite chance. Individually, the Atlanta club shows strong. If Smith can manage in a league of this calibre, he will give results. New Orleans 'has the most astute manager In this circuit in the portly Teuton, C. Frank: though it is hardly probable that he will again be able to control such a powerful baseball machine this season, as represented New Orleans last year. Of course this opinion Is only that of one man. and is. therefore, solely from a local viewpoint. Birmingham has a grand array of twirl ers, a fine fielding and heavy hitting out field. with two good catchers. The Infield is not brilliant, but It is very reliable and steady. With Vaughan!s superior ability as a team leader. I modestly claim a sure third for the Barons with a grand fighting chance for the coveted flag. Finn of Nashville is, and has been, lost as a baseball factor in the south since he lost Ed Eynch as a team leader. While Shreveport is very game it has, for many seasons, had nothing but promises. Dur rett in Montgomery would have had a splendid Inside chance for the rag had he retained the team he finished with last season. With Brothers, Oldering and Molesworth gone, his hitting and fielding strength Is badly Impaired. Either Bir mingham, Memphis or Atlanta first; with all of the above named, with New Or leans ip the first division, is our 'humble estimate of the teams as formed at present. Diamond Glints. Birmingham will have their last work out this aftprnoon and tomorrow the big game will commence with the following line-up: Matthews, catcher; Wilhelm, pitcher; Elscy, first base; Walters, second base; Montgomery, third base; Oyler, short stop; Gear, left field; Molesworth, center field, and C. Smith, right field. Carlos Smith has a slight injury to his knee, which was troubling him a bit yes terday. but he states that 'he will partici pate in the opening game, and it is a consummation devoutly to be wished, for Birmingham needs every regular, and needs that game. A good start is a great deal. The greatest joke so far of the baseball season Is the hapless nonenit.v who writes baseball for the Atlanta News. He gloat ingly refers to Atlanta's lone victory over the New York's and then states It is well not to be like Birmingham who, lie says, was beaten by Mobile. As no minor league team has thus far broken gravel on the local lot this spring and the Barons have not moved an inch out of Birmingham, it behooves the foxy qulllman with a cunning devilish leer to either smoke or wake up. The opening tomorrow will. In all prob ability, be the scene of the greatest first day gathering of the faithful ever con gregated into the slagpilo ball yard. Tt would be a pretty good idea to secure tickets down town to avoid the crush at the gates. Knolls, one of the new twlrlers of the Chicago Nationals. Is said to be a young giant. In the recent game with Colum bus 'lie developed great speed and fine control. Several members of the Pittsburg team rebelled at Hot Springs against the prac ticing on Sunday. They declare that the Sundays are theirs’ so long as nrt sala ries nre being paid. Henry Matthewson. brother of Crlsty. will not he carried by the Giants. He needs plenty of seasoning yet. Christy is about In condition from his recent Ill ness, and will be in shape by the time the season opens. All doubts about Frank Corridon being sold to Toledo were set at rest yesterday when the twirler stated positively that he hail signed and would play with the Williamsport team of the Tri-State league. Sandow. Merte’s dog, has been the Giants’ mascot for two years. When the bats begin to be packed he is ready to scurry to the dressing room with tlie rest of them. Two of the St. Trouts Americans' crop of youngsters will be regulars. Pete O’Brien will cover second and young Hartzell has distanced all other candi dates for the third base assignment. This means that Niles, the forrher Birmingham favorite, will be worked altogether in the outfield hereafter by the Browns* man ager, McAleer. Clarence Beaumont yesterday voluntar ily asked for Ills release from Pittsburg. His knee troubles him '•gain and it is believed that he will not last longer than June. Drevfuss said: “If you give out, Beau, wc will carry you as an hon orary member for the season.” Are good batsmen ever nervous at the plate? The instances arc rare, if any at all can be mentioned. Seymour, tlie Na tional league leader of :ast season; l,a Joie, the leader in the American; Keel er, Wagner and other great “swatters’* nearly all stand motionless at the plate and permit the pitcher to do the nervous act. It’s not because they are motionless that they are great batters, but because they show by this that they are cool and ready to let the pitcher do the wor rying. Just watch now and sec If the nervous one ever is a real star. Manyr fans are Unaware that the ex pression "Texas leaguer" originated in Houston, and that Ollie Pickering, now’ the erack center fielder of the Columbus champions of the American association, wras responsible for the term. It was during the regime of John J. McCloskey , | now manager of the Cardinals, but at I that time a Texas league leader, that Pick dropped Into Houston one day on :t freight train, unkempt nnn looking as little like a ball player nn possible. He had full confidence in bis own ability, however, and lost no time In applying to Manager McCloskey for a Job on hi* team. Mac was shy an outfielder. He whs keen enough to see through Picker ing's unpromising appearance and to note the proportions and movements of an athlete. So he bought nim a shave and a haircut, fixed him tip writh a uniform and told him to report at the ball yard in time for the game that afternoon. Pick did so, and achieved a remarkable record. He went to the bat seven times and got seven hits, every one of which was a short, looping fly over first or third base, that fell safe just too far out for the basemen to reach and just too far in for the gardeners. That sort of a hit had tantalized fielders before, but it had never been labeled. The report of Pick ering's remarkable afternoon on the in side spread abroad, and as the perform ance had been made In the Texas league the hits he got that day w'ere christened "Texas leaguers," a name they bear to the present time. MARION DOWNED BY GREENSBORO LADS The Game Was the Best Exhibition of Baseball Seen for Many Moons. Greensboro. April 0.—(Special.)—'The Marion Military institute was defeated by the Southern University today in a great game of ball. Marion had just taken two out of three games from Meridian and were confident of victory. Fifty rooters came over this morning from the “town of’'colleges,” to cheer their team and thep helped considerably but could not make It win. The games was fast and exciting till the very clbse. being one of the best ex hibitions seen on the local diamond in a long time. Marion has a good team, but inability to hit, coupled with a. few costly errors, lost the game. Feiser, their star left-handed twlrler, showed up in fine form. At one time the bases were full and none down, but he succeeded in retiring the side without a score. His control was good Hnd his speed and curves w^ere used effectively. The Southern University team showed its mettle all t*ho way through. It was somewhat handicapped by the second baseman being out of the game, but Mc Qehee held the base well and got the hit that made victory almost certain. Little page pitched ball like a professional. He had the Marlon Military institute hoys just where he wanted them, letting them down with only one scratch hit and not a single score. His great benders and greater speed put fifteen men on the bench without touching the ball and the others could not get it out of the infield. The game was u pitchers' bat tle In w’hich Llttlepage copped the honors. Klllough started the hitting for the Southern University with a clean two bagger and scored on "Tiny" McGehee’s drive to right field labeled two sacks. Powers' two hits came at times when hits meant runs. Score by innings: R.H.E. M. M. T .000 000 000—0 1 3 Southern. Unl’sty .000 010 02*—3 6 4 Struck Out—By Llttlepage, 15; by Feiser, 13.

FANCY DRESS CARNIVAL April 25, 26, 27 $200 IN VALUABLE PRIZES GIVEN AWAY ARE TO BE HEARD Bl COMMISSION Matters are Placed on Docket by Chairman Comer SUPREME COURT CASES Two of Importance Are Up From Chil ton County—Inspection Made of Conditions at Flat Top. I Montgomery. April 9.—(Special.)—Three cases put on the docket by B. B. Comer, president, will be heard at the regular monthly session of the state railroad commission tomorrow. One is a charge of bad sanitary conditions in the depot of the Louisville and Nashville, at An niston, which will be answered by a rep resentative of Ac system: another a com plaint that tl^ track of the Central of Georgia on the Columbus and Western division, between Opelika and Sylacauga, needs attention, and another that the passenger service Is inadequate and th3 track In need of repairs on the Eastern Alabama division of the Central of Geor gia. The other matters so far slated are the case of the Birmingham Railway, Light and Power company, question of whether It shall be classed as a common carrier, practically settled in the nega tive, and the long standing request for a depot at Saco. Since the removal of the track of the Lafayette Railway, between Opelika and Lafayette, there has been more or less complaint of the service between Opelika and Roanoke, on the Central, and It is expected that there will be quite a con troversy before the question Is settled. The commission will begin an inspection of the lines of the Southern railway In Alabama on April 17, starting from Bir mingham, Important Cases. Two cases of more than usual interest will be submitted to the supreme court this week, coming from Chilton county. They involve the validity of the law allowing the county to make a special levy as a bridge tax. The Southern and the Mobile and Ohio railroads 'have paid ( the tax under protest and mandamused i the commissioners' court to finally pass upon the right of the county to col lect it. This the court had refused for some months to do, and on petition for mandamus Probate Judge Reynolds or dered that such accounting be made and the roads and others protesting be noti fied of what they might expect. It seems a very strange proceeding, but the records | Indicate that the commissioners have ap pealed from the order for an accounting and ask the supreme court to pass upon It. The court has up this week the Fifth division, composed of the counties of Chambers, Chilton, Coosa, Elfnore. Lee, Macon, Russell and Tallapoosa. In the usual run this Is a very light docket and very likely the court will be able to dispose of it in one sitting. If that proves to be a fact, there will be a day gained for the consiueration of .mat ters in the hands of the judges as they will save tMe time taken usually in sitting for arguments. The several coun ties mentioned do not, as a rule, have much litigation. Loses His Chance. Genie Lewis, some time called Peterson, has followed in the footsteps of Frank Duncan, who was sent to his last rest ing place by the hangman's route and the dexterity of Hangman Bill Love of Jefferson county some months ago. Like Duncan, Lewis, who was convicted 1n Butler county, had his case appealed to the supreme court on a life sentence for the killing by shooting with a pistol, of one Tom Harrell. He was held in the custody of Sheriff J. H. Hartley to await action by the high court, and while so waiting made his escape from jail. The fact of his leave-taking has been re ported to the attorney general and his appeal was dismissed. Tile same thing occurred with Frank Duncan. He had been sentenced to bang and while wait ing his appeal to the supreme court, es caped the Birmingham jail. His appeal was dismissed and when captured there was nothing left to do but hang him. When Lewis gets back to the Butler county jail he will have to go nlong to the mines for the rest of his life be cause by escaping be has deprived him self of the right to have his case review ed. In tlie case of John Hamby vs. J. A. Folsom, from the circuit court of Talla poosa county, the supreme court lias over ruled Judge S. L. Brewer's decision not to establish bill of exceptions and order ed that such be done. Convict Investigation. Robert Taft, clerk in the office of the state hoard of convict inspectors, has re turned from Flat Top. where he made an inspection of the treatment of and provision for prisoners of the state and counties, held by the Sloss-Shef field Coal and Iron company. He is preparing a report- which President Shirley Bragg will give to the public tomorrow, or as quickly as It can be made up. Prest lent Bragg said today that at bis request Mr. Tait had made a thorough examina tion and would be able to fully inform him and the people of the state of the situation at this camp of convicts, where both state and county men are worked. The inspection was brought about by a report made to the revenue board of Mobile county by County Physician Ward, who went to the mines to see Just bow the prisoners were treated. He made a rather sensational report, among things I saying that they were whipped without reason and fed from a tub like so many hogs. President Mahon of the Sloss-Shef field company, says that he did not know that the convicts were not given every thing they should have, and was not aware that the county men were less humanely cared for than those of the state. Be the condition what It may President Bragg has fully made up his mind that he will secure for the county as well as the state men the best treat ment possible or let everybody know' the reason why. However, there Is no disposi tion to criticise just now. the officers believing that no one wishes to be in human. Montgomery State Fair. The State Fair to be held this fall in the city of Montgomery 'has been au thorized by the state, by the acceptance of the incorporation papers of the Sec retary of State, w'hicli are now' in his office It Is shown that the Alabama ! Agricultural association, w'hich company will have the business of the fair in * hand, has1 a capital of $100,000, and that its incorporators are W. F. Vandiver. William D. Jelks. governor; W. M. Teague. Mayor of Montgomery; R. r. Poole, Alabama commissioner of agricul ture and Industries; R. O. Blakey, and J. C. Adams. Mr. Vandiver is presi dent of the association, and Mr. Adams secretary. Tiie Incorporation papers give the right to conduct a state fair in the county of Montgomery or any other county of the state, and are elastic as to powers and privileges.
