4 cf V i® r* h* Chmn* Work* Heraldv Are all of the Iclubs of the Northern league living up I to the agreement to stay within ttie 1 salary limit and to stay within tie limit set at the last meeting of tie Heague? That question may be logi« 'ally asked when one takes a glance over the circuit and looks at some the men signed recently by a number (of the managers. It is very certaft that a club cannot stay within a limit of $1,400 if it is carrying vety 'many men on it who are receiving i*175 per month. V 1 easily 300*00 wmtmmtttt- Schuler Is Signed Up Game of Year Be Played Sunday Bid Met of Moorhead Will Play Fargo-Moorhead Team a Free Exhibition Game Next Sunday—Collec tion Will Be Taken at the Gate. Sshuler has signed up with the Graingrowers and will be seen at hit usual second base position again this year. 8chuler is not a world-beater but he fields the position in good shape, is one of the best because of his gentlemanly behavior on and off the field and because he never loafs on the job. Toward the close of last season Schuler was thought good en,* oufln to hold down the second base position with the Minneapolis# teari in the American association, during the illness of the regula|p miler second baseman and he got away with it in good snape. Thi» big league experience, though not lengthy, will be of big value to the "j*ck-rabbit" and he may develop into the leading second-sacker the league before the season is over. Besides having the experience of a full year in league ball, Sfehule will be supported by Hooper, and experienced short-stop on the side and Unglaub on the other.. It will be one of the smooth •t working infield combinations in the league before the season is rery old. Mark the prediction. The coming of Schuler also settles one more outfield position. I Dummy Fremer, the weilder of the big stick and one of the be$! /^fielding outfielders in the league last year, will now be stationed iB outer garden. With Fremer in the outfield, the Graingrowers will have a firstclass utility infielder always available in case of ad»r cident to any of the regulars, or if the third base Job begins to givtt trouble like it did last year, Fremer can be moved in to short ans 'j Hooper moved over to third, Dreis ought to have a good year at third however, working in combination with Schuler, Hooper and Unglaub, or it may be that Unglaub will discover a "find" in th# young material he has signed up, for a tryout at Mm infield peti tions. FIRST GAME NEXT 8UNDAY. The first game of the season will be staged next Sunday at the Moorhead park where all the games are to be played this year. It will be between the Moorhead Red Men, possibly strengthened for the occasion by some of the Graingrowers, and the Fargo-Hoorheari regulars. No admission will be charged, Unglaub desiring to let the farft see the locals work out free of charge, but a collection will be tak* en up to give those who wish to contribute toward the support the team, an opportunity to do so. The management has been to heavy expense to get the team started and they can make good uie of all the skekels that will come in. The training season begins Thursday when the first aetuld workout on the field by the 1915 squad will occur. The High School Athletic jmeet at /•the Agassis gymnasium Saturday I evening proved to be a success in each and every particular and more than pleased the lavge crowd of school pat irons and other interested persons that. gathered to witness it.

There are clubs that are trying jo iceep within the bounds. They hafe to or fall by the way, and it is Kt fair to these or the league when ne cities that are able to take advanfrge of their money and go beyond the 'strict salary limit set in an efTott to iaecure better players and get tttter iteams.

Team Points. Sophomores first with 40 points. Juniors second with 10 points. Seniors thtrd with 7 points. Freshmen fourth with 6 points. Without naming any particular elob it is known here that within the past week several players have been signed who have written to the management here asking for a berth, and when their lowest price was found it was in all cases $175 or above. There is one dub in the league that is carrying at least two men who are drawing $20# or better. Fox Will Stick. Manager Fox is forced to stay with in the limit because he has not the money to spend and because he de clares he will live up to the agree ment, and says that he will take his chance on young players. Despite the fact he believes that he will have as good a team as there is in the league. Bill Snow and Muggy McGraw, 'two of last year's players, will report on Tuesday according to word receiv ed yesterday, but Manager Kavanaugh stated that they will play for less than they received last season or they will not play at ail. The Fori—a great utility because it serves all the #ople. The popular choice, because it give better service at a lower cost. Popul£ again, because it is simple and understood by everybody. And with pit th refinements, it is still the same de pend*^ Ford, and sells for $60 less than last fear—besides the plan of sharing profs with the buyers. jBu^rs will share in profits if we sell at retail new Ford can between August 1914 and Auust 1915. 1^0 Coupelet all equipment. $490 Runabout $440 Town Car $750 Sedan $975, f. o. b.

Two more ball players were added to the list of the Fort William club yesterday in the persons of Dancy. a first base man, and Noble, a right handed pitch er, who are being sent here by the Kansas City club of the American association. These players played in the Michigan State league last sea son and have good records. Noble participated in twenty-eight games and Pitched his team to victory in fourteen games. They come to Fort William on optional agreements, the deal being closed yesterday at this re quest of Manager Sullivan who, be lieves that he has gathered t*'o more flnds. Bowery is Released. The local magnates handed out their first release of the 1915 season yester day and it fell to "Bowery" Collins, the comedian second baseman. That old familiar cry "Shake 'em up" will not be heqrd from the mouth of "Bow ery" this season unless he makes the grade with one of the other teams, which is not unlikely as he 1B a rat tling good player if he would stay in condition. The local club magnates in giving Collins his walking ticket offer no explanations. Players Gather at Duluth. Manager Sullivan arrived at Duluth this morning and is busy rounding up the players who were ordered to re port there. The party will leave Duluth tomorrow night, arriving here on the Canadian Northern Monday morning. It is expected that Manager Sullivan will have his squad on for a light workout Monday afternoon. The regu lar training season will start in earnest Tuesday morning and by that time all but three of the signed players will be on hand. The fans of the twin cities are anx iously awaiting the time to see the players in action and judging from the enthusiasm about the cities the crowd at the McKellar park will tax the capacity of the stand and bleach ers morning, afternoon and evening each day. The local mognates have reduced the price of tickets for the training games to 10 cents for adults and 5 cents for youngsters. Park in Good Shape. With the continuation of tit* pre sent warm weather the park will be in splendid condition for playing next, week. The diamond is In better shape -A 5reat now than over before. The park hu* been in the hands of the caretaker arM his assistants for some time and lock in a spic and span shape. Alterations have been made to the ticket offloe, the ticket windows being changed from the front to the sides of the building, thereby doing away with the rush that was experienced last year. The fans and fanettes will be enabled to lineup on each side without fear of having their feet tramped on. Port Arthur Day. The magnates are preparing for special days this season. It is assured that there will be a Port Arthur day each week and that the fans from the hill city will always have the pleasure of witnessing their home brew pitcher, Harvey Penfold, perform. There will be a "kids'' day every Thursday, the youngsters being admitted free and having a portion of the bleachers all to themselves. It is proposed to have the usual opening day celebration, which will be on a much larger scale this year. ALL IN READINESS FOR BIG HUDSON GO Hudson, Whr.. Aprtt 19.—All is in readiness for Hudson's first champion ship bout, which will be staged tomor row night, when FYeddie Welsh, king of the lightweights, defends his title in & ten-round encounter with Red Cor bett Matson, the California battler. Both boys have trained hard for the battle andnorthwest fight fans expect a whirlwind bout. Watson has worked with Mike and Tommy Gibbons. Joe Bond, a heavyweight, and Fighting Bill Murray, a middleweight. The Cali fornia battler is down to 136 pounds and will climb into the ring at 135. He realizes his only hope for a vic tory is over the knockout route and will try to land his famous left hay maker. He has a large following in the twin cities, and will have many friends at the ringside. Welsh is working hard and will not take any chances. He has introduced a new departure here, doing much of his sparring at night. Saturday night he stepped many rounds with his spar ring partner. Almost as much Interest is being taken in the semi-windup as in the main go. In the second car Homer Smith, a Benton Harbor. Mich., boy, who is showing much promise, will meet Fred Fulton, the Rochester po liceman. Fast preliminaries have been arrang ed. Harry Stout of Milwaukee, rec ognized as the best referee in the northwest, and who will jude the Hud son battles tomorrow, arrived here to day. Indications point to a hea^ attend ance.

Stein of Houghton, Mich., well known to manv of the baseball fans of this city and a former Virginian, is res ponsible for the signing by the Vir ginians of Arthur Emblom, a Hough ton amateur pitcher. Stein says all he asks for Emblom, is a fair trial. He says he Is confident he will develop into one of the finds of the season. Emblom will report to Manager Sun T.heim next week.

Whether the fans would take to the sport with the enthusiasm of past years was an open question when the team took the field for the opening games. Many distractions threatened to in terfere with the success of the season. Not the least of these was the Euro pean conflict. Another was the con tinuation of the baseball war, calculat ed to shift attention from the playing Held to the business side of the game. But the start of the season was de cidedly auspicious. The attendance has been excellent—far beyond ex pectations for the most part. There has been plenty of enthusiasm and ap parently keen interest in the chances of the various teams. For one thing, the clubs have been almost uniformly favored with clear, if somewhat cool weather. In the two leagues to date there has only been one postponement because of bad atmospheric conditions. For another, the victories and defeats of the teams have been almost evenly divided. Out of the sixteen clubs in the two circuits, no less than eleven had split even on games won and lost when the new playing week opened Sunday. All told, the result of the first few days of play have been encouraging to mag nates and players and to well-wishers of the sport. As to the capabilities of the various clubs, threp or four days play are hardly sufficient on which to base opinions. One can hardly say the Athletics of 1915, even without Collins, Baker, Bender and Plank are outclass ed simply because they happen to be at the foot of the American league at the present moment. Neither can the Philadelphia nationals be heralded as likely winners Just for the reason that they remain the only undefeated club in either league, and top the national circuit. Some things, however, are pretty plainly indicated by the way the games of the past week have gone. One is that the Chicago White Sox are likely to be more dangerous con tenders in the American league race, than they have been for some years past. The acquisition of Eddie Collins obviously has strengthened the team materially, and there seems to he an opinion prevalent among Chicago fans that Clarence Rowland, the new man ager. will get good work out of his collection of baseball talent. The Sox are batting excellently, as is evidenced by their thirty-nine hits in four games. In this department of play, they were outdone only by the New York Na tionals, with forty hits to their credit. Braves Poor 8tsrt. The Boston Braves, the world's champions, got off to a poor start, and their chances of coming up fast were not improved, to say the least, by the injury of Johnnie Evers, the king-pin of their field. But Stallings' bad bat ting of last season and his team's brilliant finish will not be forgotten in this connection. In Philadelphia Pat Moran obtained encouragement from the winning stride struck by the team with which he is serving his novitiate as manager, and there has been no ground for discouragement for Roger Bresnahan. the new manag er of the Chicago Cubs. Only the Brooklyn, indeed, have lagged in the National league, and the team, hamp ered by bad weather and other set ,hacks in its training season, is admit ijl *.'• •HJtas.'i- the BASEBALL ENTHUSIASM AS KEEN AS EVER-GL00M1. OUTLOOK FADES AWAY WITH largest OPENING OF THE SEASON tedly not in the best of condition yet. The Boston Redsoz, picked by maqf to win the American league pennant^ are leading their league Just at prcS» ent, so far deferring predictions as to what strength they could manifest. At' for Washington, the mainstay of their pitching staff, Walter Johnson, hsa proved he is in prime form, even w he did lose a ninth inning decision a relief twlrler on his second appear^ ance of the season, and this meaag much to Clark Griffith's ambitions, hustling clan. Bill Donncvan, the new head of the New York Americans, is getting good work out of his men, who seem even faster on the bases than last year and likely to finish better if they display the improved batting power of which the training season gave indications. The first week of the play produced some feats of baseball unusual, so early in the season. First of these was the no-hit game of Rube Mar* quard of the Giants against the Brooklyn* at the Polo grounds. close second was the one-hit nine inn* inifs pitched by Pennock of the Ath» letics against the Rcdsox with the one hit after two were out in the ninth. In Philadelphia Saturday Fritz Ma'xel* of the Yankees accomplished the raj*# feat of stealing second, third and Hems in succession. American Association. Louisville Jumped to the front IB the American association and won the first four games. Federsl Lesgue. 1 The Federal league season, whlfib. opened four days earlier than thos* o( the big league of organized baseball.* was well under way as the week end" ed. The Brooklyns, reinforced by Lee Magee, who Jumped from the St. Louis Nationals to manage the former team and Bennie KaulT, star outfielder of last years Indianapolis champion**, have made almost a runaway race of it so far. The one circuit change of the sea son, which brought the former Indian apolis champions to Newark, was highly satisfactory to the magnates of the league, as the patronage of the Xew Jersey city so far has been grati fying. The openings, indeed, were auspicious in all the league cities and a far more prosperous season than that of 1914 is predicted toy President Gillmore and his aides. Many stars who. last year played OB. the big league demands of organised baseball, this year are wearing Fed eral league uniforms. Some of them are doing brilliant work others so far not faring so well. Among the latter are Plank, formerly of the Phila delphia Americans, who dropped his first game for St. Louis, and Chief Bender, also from the Athletic, who lost the first two conteai# b# twirled for Baltimore.
