New Turk, November 6.?When the

to be adjuated will be that of remun?

la recent year* thee* long training
trips hare been bonos of cootes-tlcn
between clubs and star players. Up to
tea years ago there were no midwinter
Invasions of the South. The big league
season started late La April and the
players did not assemble until after
April t
The training seaaon baa now become
a distinct feature in the practice of
big league teams. Manager McGraw.
of the Giants, has his new players re?
port each year at the Texas training
camp two weeks before the regul?re
arrive. McOraw therefore meets his
"rookies" about February JO. The reg?
ular players come straggling In the
first week of March!
Then there is a month of hard work,
with more or less traveling. Some?
times the weather Is cold or rainy, and
It Is diffloult for a team to obtain good
hotel accommodations In many cities
and towns in the South.
Even when a team remains in one
camp, as the Giants do, the squad ia
split up and sent to nearby cities for
exhibition* games Saturday ana Sun?
day. Then comee a week or ten days
of slow progress northward. A team
usually Jumps a few hundred miles
each night and plays a game every
day. Finally the players, who have
been playing a month or six weeks for
nothing, arrive at their home city and
indulge in a few more exhibition
Not until the flrat day of the cham?
pionship season does the player go on
th? pay roll. He Is paid twice a
month: therefore the first real pay day
I? April 30. By that time did* of the
men have been actively engaged for
more than two months. Few of them,
especially the beginners, have any
other source of Income. Therefore they
"touch" the club's bank roll for pocket
money. The strength of the "tap" de?
pends -m length of service with the
team and prospects for remaining with
it. The first pay day for big league
players usually consists In the return
of sundry *X o. U/s" to the athletes.

I Players who have been in tbe big
I leagues a few seasons and drawing
I good salaries do not throw away their
I earnings as most of the old-timers
! did. Nearly evei y one. has thousands
; Invested In solid propositions. Often
an athlete goes into business for him?
i A bail player in business depends
largely oa his popularity and person
; ality to help him along. Ho simply
i capitalises his fame. Many of the
I tessers operate billiard rooms, cigar
stores and other plages where fane
congregate. A few are proprietors of
saloons, some are in the mini furnish?
ing goods business, aad others travel
during the off season. Tbe stags has
also claimed many of them.
A player in these more or less afflu?
ent circumstances naturally disputes a
club owner's right, to call him off his
winter Job and pay him nothing for a
month or six weeks of training in ths
South. Some of them, who take good
care of themselves and can get into
shape quickly, are permitted to report I
, late; otberg simply refuse to Join the
team until they get ready. For such
insubordination they are subject to
fine, but in many instances they make
money even by paying the fine aad
staying on the winter Job.
This issue, therefore, is one that is
alive with major league stare Sortie
of them favor a demand for half salary
and expenses until the regular season
begins. Others believe this rule should
prevail only for players getting less
than IS.300 a season. They argue that
the high-priced star can afford to ac?
cept a nominal sum.
Still others believe in setting a uni?
form rate?say $203 a month and ex?
penses?and giving that to everybody
who has been with a clnb at least one
season. The club owners are disposed
to agree to a reasonable demand, but
will not stand for ths "half salary"
claim. Probably this matter will be
arbitrated and a scale of spring sal?
aries fixed.

known negro entered the Norfolk of

ance Company this afternoon, choked
and gagged tbe 20-year-old cashier.
Miss Pattle Townes. and escaped with
S536 in cash.
The offices are In the Board of Trade
Building, one of the b?rgest office
buildings in the city.
Not until another employe. Miss Jen?
nie Levenstein, returned from lunch,
was ths robbery discovered. Miss
Townes. a strikingly pretty young
blonde, became unconsoious when the
negro attacked her. Miss Levenstsla
found the inert form lying upon the
door more than fifteen minutes after
the assailant had entered the office.
Miss Townes at her desk la the
cashier's room, heard footsteps In the 1
private office of the superintendent, j
which joins her own. Upon investi?
gation she foand a negro standing in i
the middle of the private office. The j
door leading to the hall, always se?
curely locked, stood ajar. The negro j
asked If tbe superintendent was In.
Miss Townes answered in the negative j
and started across tee room to fas?
ten the door. When her beck was
tannd. the negro seised her about the :
throat, his arms closing in a vlse
llhe grip. She was gagged with a
flour sack before she was sble to
scream for assistance.
The assistant superintendent was in
an adjoining office. Until he heard ?
