He was with the Chicago Na Hj tionals for a short time in the spring K ot 1905, but didn't stick The year before Mitchell and Srhulte played side by side with Syracuse In the H New York State league, and al though they will probably be Beparal Hr ed by a center fielder this season, H they will be fairly well acquainted. I Mike came to the Cubs in the whole- I sale swap with Cincinnati, whereby I, the Reds acquired Tinker and gave five players In exchange Mitchell Is considered a regular .300 hitter, al though he has been just below It for the last three years, but batted 310 In 1509.

' KNIGHT SIGNS FAST MEN ON THE COAST A Salt Lake paper says As the Interinountain basehall sea son rapidly approaches, the fans, one and all are warming up in eagerness for what they confidently expect will be a "hummer" fight for the Union pennant V vast multitude of roporis are constantly circulating as to the activities of the six team managers and the personnel of the teams that will form the league but it is to be noted that theee men are quiet and energetic rather than profuse in boasts of what they are going to ac complieh Thai the Union league will put up as good and better ball this year than ever before is not doubted, and it is the consensus of opinion that the bat tle will be royal from start to finish If the determination of those who are engineering the league counts, the pennant will never be won until the season closes. The biggest asset to the success of the game will remain with the fans, and that they will be ready with an abundance of good old support is unquestionable. Under the present schedule the sen son will be opened here on April 21. With little more than a month':? inter val, Managers John McCloskey of Salt I-ake. "Kitty" Knight of 0"den. Ar thur Merkle of Butte. Cliff Blanken ship of Missoula Danny Shay of Hel ena and Harry Hester of Great Palls are speeding up their plans for get ting each other's scalp. New Array Presented. In this arrav of club heads is pre sented something new Here are three men of big league experience and rep utation, McCloskey, Shay and Blan kcnshlp. pitted against three young sters. Knight, Merkle and Heater, who j arc only awaiting a good chance to show the older heads what the "new I stuff" looks like. Not a few of the fans who have followed the game closest bold to the opinion that Shay may prove a "dark horse," and believe that be may slip up surprisingly on the prospective winner of the pennant Danny Is busy grouping things together, and, it is declared, will put forth a strong ag gregation to fight for Helena. A special dispatch from Manager Knight, who is on the coast, announc es that he has signed up Outfielder Johnny Shays and Catcher Pomeroy, who will be new men in the league this season The dispatch also say? that Knight ban secured Schimpff un ' der a 1913 contract and that the Og- I JOgden State Bank OGDEN, UTAH .

Cal., and will be in Oakland to day, where he expects to sign up Pitcher Martononi. the big right hander who has been with the Oaks the Inst two years From Butte comes word that Mer kle Is gathering such men around him as Big Keenan. the pitcher. Rube Levy, last year s inflelder: Bob Whal ing. Robinson, Seaton and other ma terial of tried worth It is predicted in Butte that Merkle will receive mor.j support from tandom there than shin the days of 1902. Heater at Great Falls and Blank ensbip at Missoula are without doubt "sawing wood" vigorously and a big nhusxah" Is expected from those lo calities at any time. Honest'' John McCloskey Is not less active than the others He be lievea that the pennant is not won in the newspapers, but on the ball field He, like the others, appears reticent to sing out. but is mighty bus;, just the same It only requires the mention of names such as Billy Davis, John Pendleton, Huelsman, Murphy. Speii'N r and Morgan to get a line on vhat "Mac" Is collecting. McCloskey's policy will be one of thorough experiment and test, It is understood until be has gathered to gether a team that will assure Suit Lake tbe pennant. It Is not always to the swllt in starting that victorv comes Tail-enders at a season's start commonly prove the winners at th end. In this regard Ogden s record last season is vividly recalled The Chicago White Sox. who have been Struggling with the eorst clubs, will be in Ogden April 1, when Knight will take advantage of a good prac tice game On April o and 6 the local boys will .again have a good chance to loosen up against t:ie Honolulu-Chinese univer sity club. Tom Hackett's Quincy, 111 . club will be here April 12 and 13. en route home from spring practice on the coast, and MeCloskcy's men will cross bats with the "Three I" leag uers. Every indication points to a splen did baseball season here, and present sentiment reveals that the fans aro Itching to get up on tbe job ROSS WILL BE THEREFEREE Otto Ross of Salt Lake uho was in Ochring's corner when the latter wrestled with Harbertson in this city a few weeks ago, has been finally agreed upon by all parties concerned to referee tbe Harbertson-Irdlini-r match Wednesday uight. He Is s;:i'l to be well versed In the game, a man of keen judgment in sporting evenl and will see to it that the match is Just what it Is announced to be a finish match in every sense. There will be time limit to the affair and no decision on polnu Anything short of a fall will have no bearins on the outcome, so the fans can ex pect to get their money's worth Irslingcr's workouts on the mat at the Orpheum have demonstrated that he Is possessed of great strength and combines this with all the science known to the game as well as an elu siveness that is better described as slippery, his ability to get out of what look to be unbreakable holds being wonderful I The boil on Harbertson's body that , turned out to be a splinter should heal nicely in a day or so and with th'iB annoying factor disposed of all ap pears clear sailing from now on From watching both men in their mat work in the last week one finds it dlffii till to see where either has any striking advantage Endurance and staying power will probably rut a large figure I in determining who Is the better man Manager Gobs has everything in readiness for the big crowd who will undoubtedly attend. Tbe sale of seats already Indicates that interest In the match is great and a capacity house is looked for B. Y. U. VICTORIOUS OVER LOGAN COLLEGE Logan, March 23. In tbe first inter collegiate debate of the season the Brigham Young university met the Utah Agricultural college here Satur day night on the Question. "Resolved, that a minimum wage scale, operative in workshops, factories, department stores and the sweated industries thremghout the United States, should be provided by law. constitutionally granted." The debate was one of the Keenest that has ever taken place here The B Y. U. maintained the affirmative side of the question. Its debaters be ing Charles Schwencke and Arthur L Beeley. Tho A, C U.'s represent atives were B. A. Fowler and Miss ! Myrtle Johnson. The decision of the Judges, Judge Howell of Ogden and Dr. Mlddleton of Salt Lake, wai unan- 1 lmous In favor of the B. Y. U, BUTTE TEAM IS COMING TO OGDEN Butte. March 24. The idea advanc ed by the Post to dispose of 31)00 buttons to the fans of this city has met with the approval from the rank and file of fandom and a big crowd will be on hand for the opening game, each and everdy one of whom will b" decorated with a button on which is printed "30.000, ' and judging from present indications there will be very near that many at the opening game, i as the principal business houses of the city have promised to give their employes a half holiday on the aft ernoon ot Mav 18, when Merkle s bunch will openu In this city with Blank s fast Missoula outfit The buttons will be sold for $1 each and will include a ticket to i tw- g.itin They will be on sale in a short time and the fans who get a button and a ticket for an "Iron Man" can sport j their button for some time before the ! first game, and with their ticket al I ready purchased are more certain to be In attendance than if they walt ; ed until the last minute to make up their minds and were without the pasteboard The mone received from this source w'ill go a long waj toward paying the training expenses and is badl needed at this time ot the year, when all is going out and noth l ing coming in The conditioning will be done in Utah near Ogden. and man exhibition games will be play ed. The team will report about April 3, although Manager Merkle and some of the young pitchers may be on the ground several days earlier to get a start in the training griud lor the coming season The Helena Independent contained the following interesting information: The activity of the six managers in the Union association would indicate that the league is to be about 30 per cent stronger this year than last Kit ty Knight is scouting out on the coast. Art Merkle Is burning up the wires for players, McCloskey has about an eight hundred dollar outfield. "Blank" c laims he will be 25 per cent Stronger Hester is standing pat on a likely looking lot of youngsters, and Danny Shay Is not idle by any means. Now that the Butte sport writers have a manager who Is willing to talk and knows something about their team, they are boosting the game no bly. If Art Merkle, who Is mighty popular personally, ran get away from the post in good shape the old town ought to come back with a vengeance this year. Johnny Hopkins, a Callfornian, has accepted terms with Manager Shay and will report here next month Hop 'clns is a left hander w ho played inde pendent ball In Souora, Cal.. last s t son. Shay has seen him play and 6ays that he should be a valuable mun He is an experienced pitcher and ha3 plaved in the Coast league and the California State league Man ager Shay ateo Is negotiating with a former We-st'Tii Canada leagu.-- pifHi er who won 2!i games and lost 7 In 1911. That he Is an exceptional hit ter for a pitcher is indicated b his mark of .294 for the season and he was also leading home run hitter of iho league with ten round-trip drles. PITCHING STAFF SHOULD BE GOOD "A good pitching staff means a troublesome ball club." remarked Con nie Mack one day last summer at Shibe. park "If the rest of the team Is only mediocre, and the pitching staff is really high class, that club is going to be a hard one to beat I would much prefer taking a chance on such a club to win than a cork ing good clnb with a poor staff of pitchers." Connie was not talking for pub lication, writes Billy Evans in the . Sporting ews We were just doing a little fanning on' the bench prior to the. start of the game Inside of a few months the wisdom of Mack's speech was forcibly Impressed on me. Seeral years ago the Detroit team got away with a tremendous lead. After about six weeks of play the team had won something like 26 and lost only three or four games Fans the country over began to concede the pennant to Detroit American league managers at once realized It was a big handicap to overcome. Most of them had hopes, however, Mack In particular, that the Detroit pitching staff would be unable to stand the hard strain. In the early spring the young pitch ers on tho Detroit club carried the burden in a masterly manner That surely made thlnga look good for j Jennings. It would enable him to nurse along the etorans until tho i hot weather arrived aud tQen U6ei them when the youngsters started to! wilt. Veterann Failed. ( Unfortunately, for various reason, I the veterans failed to show the form, expected. The recruits exploded, and! the vets failed to even up the bur den Game after game was lost by! the Tigers because of the liberty the opposition took with the Tiger pitch ing. Day after day defeat v. as reg istered, even though the Detroit crew madp five or six runs or more The opposition always seemed able to make at least one more run than tho Tigers The hitters were unable to carry the entire burden and the Ti gers lost out. WILLARD EAGER FOR BOUT WITH M'CARTY Denver. Colo.. March 22 Jess Wil lard. a youth of 26, who at this writ ing Is the only man In the world ! holding a decision over Luther M--Carty, heavyweight champion of the I world, rolled into town yesterday Willard is just rambling, praying night and morning that his manager, Charlie Cutler will, before the set ting of another sun; induce McCartjl to attach his name to a set of ficht articles. If Luther would only forget for a minute what I did to him in that lit tle ten-round engagement In New York, when the big league sporting editors were a unit in saying that I made him look like a selling plater, and just fight me once more only once more." sighed the young man last night, as he sat In the Mozar cafe, the target for al! eyes "Will I fight McCarty"? repeated the giant I will fight any man In the world, white, black or yellow or any other color that the public wants me lo fight, bar none. " Willard Is going to Salt Lake City to visit friends. From there he will probably go to the coast, Where h hopes to be signed up for McCart He is accompanied by Ray O. Archi r. bis secretary. BOMBARDIER IS BROKEN HEARTED (By Ed Curley.) New York, March 24. Bombardier Wells, the English heavyweight cham pion, who was stopped quickly by Gunboat Smith in Madison Square garden last Friday night, sailed for home on the Kaiser Wllhelm II, de termined neer to return here as a fighter. Wells was accompanied by his wife. Sidney Wells, bis brother and Jem Moloney, his manager. I am greutly disheartened." said Wells at the pier in Hoboken to a party of friends. "I have almos' made up my mind to quit the ring forever. I did not mind the defeal by Palzer so much, but when I was stopped by Smith the other night it was the last straw. I trained hard for Smith and was in splendid condition. After the first round I thought I had him. He was slow and awkward and a mark for my left hand 'Imagine my surprise, therefore, when he suddenly changed his tactics in the. second round and landed a wild punch on my Jaw before I realized that the round had begun The blow completely rattled me. and after thai I did not box at all. My feet refused to work and I could not raise my Arms to block him off. He won fair ly and I wish him success, but it is hard to feel that 1 disappointed Am ericans who believed in me and treat ed me so royally. ' I mii open a boxing school in Lon don shortly and if it pays I will stick to that branch of the profession Per haps I may forget my defeats some day and try to come back, but just now the ring has very little attrac tion for me So I am saying fare well." Wells received $6000 for the Smith bout, out of which he was forced to pay training expenses and other bills j during his stay It Is said that he has some money tested on the other sldo and is fairly well fixed (Continued n Page Seven.; on Occasionally a woman who has a fine collection of porcelain shows it P What An 0 costs less than I g Nothing!
