TO FORM COMPANY FOR PURCHASE OF LOCAL BASEBALL FRANCHISE Dr. Geo. F. Bagby 'i aKing In.tiativc, Attempt Will Be Ma?e to Restore Confluence in learn. Eastern League ?Franchise Ultimate Hind. BY GVS MALBERT. Headed by Dr. George I". Bagby, the man who was responsible tor bringing the All-Stan and Athletics to Rich? mond tor an exhibition game of base? ball, a company Is be;n^ tormed for the purpose of buying the Richmond Virginia l/vague franchise from W. B. Bradley, lock, stock and barrol. The object of the new corporation will be to take over the franchise of i:. :hmond in the Class C organization, And, It possiule, secure a franchise In thl Eastern League. It is believed taut satisfactory arrangements can he made with the Virginia Uciigu? by which u release for this city can be secured. The corporation will have a cajmal stoclt of Jluu.OOo, and many prominent business men of Richmond will be interested. For the benelit of those who are close to the local management, but who fall to scratch beneath the veneer which covers many of the transactions, making them appear "just what they ain't." It m!?lit be well to state that I>r. Bagby lias been In conference with owner Bradley in regard to the pur? chase of the club. The local magnate not only named his prlco?I30,ujv? but stated that he would not require payment to be made entirely In cash, being willing to accept notes for a gOodly portion thoreof. ConAdence Shattered. Confidence In the present ownership of the club having been shattered through several seasons of baseball remarkable only for the poor perform? ances given, it will be a relief to the patrons to witness a change In the financial control of the club. Dr. Bag by, together with the men Interested, Is of the opinion that Something can be done to give Richmond better base? ball. Ho Is willing to give his time and attention to the team, and realizes wherein the present system is lacking. The people who will put up tholr coin and who are anxious to do their best I for Richmond as a baschall centre, are not going Into the proposition blind? folded, nor are thoy philanthropists in any sense of the word. They have had their ears to the ground, and they realise that the patrons of the game aro tired?heart? ily sick and tired?of the penurious system which has kept Richmond from getting the class of baseball which the town deserves, and which the at? tendance at the games warrants. It will bo the desire of these men to give that kind of baseball and at the same time earn a fair compensation. The doubting Thomases who have sat on the bock fence and declared that no ono would dare enter Into tne basoball Held here in Richmond, arc those who aro now close to the local owners. They are tho persons who have their Ideas of the game made for them, and are willing to swallow nny sort of arguments which may bo ad? vanced- They refuse (absolutely to' view the situation from the patrons' atsndpolnt. "If we can't bring Roa noke and Danville and Lynchburg and Petersburg up to our stundard, then we must be content to drop to their standard." Is their cry. But Richmond Is balking at that line of argument. Phi run. Not Fairly TTe-ated. Seating the case baldly, yet fairly, the patrons of the game In Richmond have not been treated Justly They have been mode to witness the kind Of baseball for which Danville and tne other smaller towns of the circuit can pay. No consideration has been given them. They have been compelled to witness tho games of the Virginin League, pay their money like good fellows, made to swallow the nauseat? ing draught, and have then been asked to say they like It. Let those who will say differently, the time for rebellion has arrived. Richmond, last season, with but two bad days during the entire sixty-two scheduled, lost but two games through poor weather conditions. Yet Rich? mond dropped something more than Ho per cent. In attendance. Despite this fact a tidy sum of money was made. The loss In attendance can be attributed to but one. fact?Richmond was getting second-class baseball and there was not that effort made to Im? prove the game which the public de? manded. Here Is tho proposition In a nut? shell, so far br next season is con? cerned: The present owner of tne club soyB that he will give the best pos? sible baseball for the money ullowed. In other words. Richmond, playing to 115,000 people In a season, and a poor season at that, must enjoy the same kind of baseball that Roanoke enjoys, where the total attendance was but 25.000; or Petersburg, which, with a banner year, played to but 40,000 ' people. Richmond'* Contribution. Richmond last season paid as Its j part of the ??Inking fund of the league J1.800. Petersburg was the next, pay? ing just IfcRS. From these two amounts It dwindled down to Danville, which paid 1378. These figures tell their own story. They say more clear ly than words that Richmond deserves better baseball than iho othur towns of the league, because Richmond pays more money lor Its buscbull. However, so far us the present owners are concerned, thoro wJ.ll be no chunge, because, regardless ot what kind or baseball, is dished out, the owners arc sure of making a. prollt of from *?,o?u to ?lu.ouu, without trou- ! 'ble, without risk, und without exor- j tlon. And the public puys for It ull. i The time bus come lo call a halt, | Richmond, tho keystone of the Vir- ] glnla Leugne, will absolutely quit Un? less belter baseball is set veu. Tue 1 Virginia League is uuout lo be dis? rupted, 'l'ho unheard or tactics at the moot? ing in Petersburg a few days ago, when C. H-. Williams was supposedly deposed from his office of president, has divided the league into two I warring factions. Roanoke und Pe- I tombin g and Norfolk are at odds with Richmond, Danville und Lyncnburg. The roseate talk Irom Richmond, or rather tiom certain sources in Rich? mond, that those teams not desiring to continue can drop out is rot. Why ore not Rounoke, Norfolk and Peters? burg just as much entitled to lull the other three to drop out us the three in question are entitled to issue the same ultimatum? Virginia League Uuslrd. To-day there is no Virginia League. Williams Is still at the holm of th? fragments, but these fragments ar? going to be mighty hard lo put to? gether. The whole trouble is with the baseball loving public, which re? fuses lo be mulcted out of its dollars by any performances such as have been witnessed in the past. "Peace, peace. when there la no peace." said the Prophet Jeremiah In the good buok. Thul's whu.1 they uro crying In Richmond about tho Vir- I glnla League. "Everything Is all , right," say those who earn tho right to say it. because their Individual prosperity depends upon maintaining thut position. The wish Is father to the hope. But there Is no peace. Thoro Is war. and war to the death. Tho public stands to ona side and will be in at the death. Rut there will be no repiuings. lnsteud, great will be the joy. W. B. Bradley soys he la willing to sell now at a fair price. Thirty thou- | sand dollars is the fair price he numcs. . But for what is the $30,000 asked? For a park on which u lease does not : exist, and which is equipped with an Obsolete grandstand, bleachers which, have been condemned by the Bullding | Inspector, and a diamond on which professionals should 'be ashamed to play. As a matter of fact, the thing for which the $30.?00 will be paid, if it is paid, Is for protection from the Na- ; tlonul Association of Professional Baseball Clubs for Richmond. That's all that W. B. Bradley has to sell, plus a few ball players. Aaaet Goes Sailing. With the demise of tho Virginia League his asset ceases lo exist. It it evident mat the talk ubuui bringing | In Portsmouth and Newport News and ! Suffolk is a Joke. It la n.-arly an af- I front to the people of Richmond. It w< were a Joke with Roanoke and Dan- ' Villa and Lynchburg In the league, we WpUl be even a greater Joke with th* I cities suggested. The people will not stand for it. You can't get away from the people. A bull park empty tells 1 the story. That's Just what will hap pen should a fiasco such as Is sug? gested by those admltte<j to the holy of holies be consummated. As at present constituted the Vir? ginia League Is strongest. But even ut Its strongest It Is weak for Hit reason thut the towns composing the league tire not able to pay lor the kind . of baseball which should be played In 1 Richmond. The owner of the Rich- i inond franchise doesn't care. Most cer? tainly not, for he must make money under any circumstances. Nor Is he willing to make an effort to get Into faster company. He is willing to draw down bis dividend at the ond of each playing season and trust to the gullibility of the people to furnish him the same divi? dend another year. The worm has turned. It has been trod on so many different times, from so many different angles; lias listened to so many apologies and to so many promises, that It has backed Into a corner arid refuses to move until it l! ' shown. Doomsday has arrived for the Virginia League. , Small Towns Need Richmond. Naturally the smaller towns of the I league laugh and poohpooh the Idea] of Richmond going Into faster com pany. They have been living on Rich- 1 mond for lo. these many years, and they hate to see the goose that Is laying goldt-n egg? depart. They need Richmond In order to satisfy their , baseball appetites, but not having ' grown to the proportions of Richmond, ; their appetites are .satiated by con- ' siderably different fo ?d than Rich? mond Is now demanding. The almost ridiculous stand of some people locally regarding the advanco ment of this town to faster company in the baseball world can hardly be explained along reasonable lines. ! These same people have been eter- ! nally and everlastingly crying for tho names of those who wanted to buy. Nov. they have the name of tho man who la engineering the deal. It has never been much of a secret- Nor Is It much of a secret to determine tho men he Is representing. They are not ashamed of anything they are doing. They are rather proud that they will lake charge of the game end endeav? or to give Richmond real baseball, so that the town can hold its head high among oilier cities of like population .? hen It comes to discussing the na 1 tlonal game. Whether the Virginia League sur- i Vive or fall, as It seems It must In? evitably do, Richmond will get base? ball, and baseball of the better class, hi calibre of the men who are. doing I il much for Richmond guarantees thai Ihi game will be played, and that It will he of a class with a city of the pronilnei.ee of Richmond. If there he some who, ostrlch-llke, burrow their hea la In the i tnd and fall to see. that's their fault. Richmond Is progressing, and now:.ere is this progress more noticeable than along baseball lines. AMUSEMENTS Academy?"Alias Jimmy Valentine."

LOCALMECHANICS GO OUT ON STRIKE Boilermakers at Locomotive Works Involved in Grievance Elsewhere. About 200 bollermakers employed at the Richmond Branch of the American Locomotive Company went out on strike yesterday In response to orders from J. A. Franklin, of Kansas City, president of the International Boiler? makers' and Helpers' L'nlon, who offi? cially declared a strike against all plants of the American Locomotive Company. It 1b staled that about 2,000 men In all, at Dunkirk, Schenectady, Richmond. Pittsburgh and Montreal, are affected. Other departments of the ahops are not affected, and were working yes? terday as usual. There Is aald to be no local grievance. The trouble be? tween the company and tho bo'ler makers' union originated at the Sche? nectady shops, over tome work in progress there for the New York Cen? tral Railroad. No New York Central work has been sent to the Richmond shops, the walkout here being puroly sympathetic No Local Matter. Both the bollermakers here and the local officers of the plant are averse to discussing the situation. It la not their fight, und they are merely await? ing the result of a contest elsewhere. It" nothing la done within a few days steps will be taken by Manager Sea? mans to fill the places, but If tho men return to work In the next day or two their positions will be opon to them. After thut they will have to take their chances. The whole trouble, It Is stated. Is between the bollermakers of the New York Central and that company, and the Locomotive Company was not In? volved until the New York Central at? tempted to have work done in the Schenectady shops. The bollermakers' union served formal notice on tho company that Its members would not be allowed to work on tho New York Central Job. Tho company held this a violation of an agreement entered Into which fixed hours and wages, but said nothing as to where the work should come from. The local men aro frank to say that they have no griev? ance and do not desire to strike. If It should become necessary to bring In outside labor. It Is announced that It will be on the open shop principle. gtmtftmentfe ACADEMY?To-Night & Sat. Matinee Saturday.
