The promoters of the propound mid summer carnival for Laurium will clow contracts thin week with the Houghton County Electric Light com pany for power for the cam leal at traction to be brought here next July. As tho driving park ha no lighting faiilitlcs, it will be necessary to run wires to the park for this occasion. It 1m also ispl!jle that the absence of water at the driving park may prove an obstacle, but those who arc pro moting this event have practically ar-range-d, to store n sufficient supply of water In tanks on the grounds. Tho khuwa. which-.have, leen. cu- Kfi?ed for Luurlum are presented the Patterson Amusement company, not the Parker Rros.' iShow eom;ny as was a first expected.

Kastello of the old council arc candidates for re-election and It Is believed that Malcolm McLeod will be a candidate to suc ceed himself although he has made no formal announcement. In addition George Hall and George Iabby arc In the race for ixisltlons as trustees. It was rumored yesterday that Dan C. Harrington -wrjuhl be in the:race:but when seen today, Mr. Harrington stated that he had decided to keep out of the fight. There are four vacancies to be filled at the coming election as it; will be necessary to rill the unex pired term of Vincent Valro, to which Mr. Rastello was appointed last spring after the resignation of Mr. Valro.

In addition to candidates who have made formal announcement of their In tentions, the name-s of various others have been mentioned In this connoc tion, and 1t is thought that the fight will bo warm.

The Deluge is Coming "Watch tho Papers .... n-jM .... ... ...... i X ft THE CALUMET NEWS I NOT DIFFICULT HOW ATHLETICS COPPED OFF OPPONENT'S SIGNALS LAST SEASON FALKENBERG FINDS OUT. That they got the opposition teams' battery signals last season was admit ted and even boasted by the Athletics, but how Mack's men did it was a mystery until after they had won the American league pennant. This is no signal tipping scandal The Athletics' way of getting the catcher's Blsnal was on the level. Their secret was kept so they could -get the Cubs' sig nals in the world's scries, which they did. Fred Falkenberg was the first pl-iyer to get onto the Athletics system. The tall Nap pitcher kriew. as did either players, that the Athletic batters near ly always knew what kind of ball was coming. Fa Iky spent several sleeplesB nights figuring it out. How It Worksr. Here is how they did it; The playc whose turn It was to bat next stood waiting almost behind the catcher ln stead of in a path straight from th tench to the home plate, . which wa where the next batter cf every othe team waited. The player waiting t bat got the catcher's signals from be hind. "Get on. Harry." meant a e-urv Is coming, and "Touch all the bases Keldie," meant this Is a straight fas ball, and so on. The catchers gave their signal away to the player behind them In hid ing them from the enachers on firs and third base. Signals are given the pitcher by the catcher extending twi three or four fingers, or by holding the closed right hand against the catching mitt. Unless the mitt wa held facing the pitcher it was the easiest thing In the world for a player behind the catcher to get the signs Falkenberg had Ted Easterly give his signals so they couldn't be seen from behind him. Falky laughed a the Athletics as they stretched their nexks to see what Ted was giving. Athletics' New Scheme. Then the Athletics figured out an other way. They counted on the Nap" spreading the News . and se t out to get another line on what the pitcher would throw, nnd they got a new way. t'hlef Render devised it. Chief said he could tell from the way tho pitcher held the ball and from his first motions In pitching- w hat kind of ball he would throw. Render was stationed on one coaching line and Coombs on the other when neither was working and when Render or Coombs pitched Topsy H.irt- sel held down one of the coaching Jobs. They told the batter by a word in line, of coaching talk whether siraignt last tall, a curve or a waste ball was coming. This method was not so effe-ctlve as reading the catch er's signals, but it was almost as good. In World's Series, Too. The Athletics used the old system of getting the catcher's signals In the world's series. It will be remembered that Johnny Kllng wasted three balls n the second game with Collins on first base, and Eddie made no move to steal second. On the first ball over the plate Collln3 stole. Johnny Kllng. the greatest throwing catcher, was stoixl on his he-ad. Kllng threw as hard and accurately as he ever did n the National league race last season ut he was a dub In the hlo- aorlra The answer Is easy. Lou Crlger almost started a slgnal tlpplng scandal last season. Iou call ed Umpire RII1 Dlneen's attention to the fact that Athletic base runners made no attempt to steal when he called for a ball.

Former Bay City Twirler Makes An Unuaual Record. There is an exception to every rule and King Cede, of the Chicago Cubs, h the exception to the rule that none but twlrlers of experience can attain a winning percentage of over .800 In the major leagues. Cole came Into the National league unheralded but soon became a star, It was his grand pitching that won the pennant for Frank Chance. When the count of noses had been complete It was found that this youngster had won more than four-fifths of his games. Twenty victories had been credited to, while only four defeats were chalked against him. When one stops to think over the list of .800 pitchers in the days gone by, the names of Spauldlng, Radbourne, HofTer, Hughes, Chesbro, Doheny, Donovan, McCJinnity, Wiltse, Reulbach, Rrown, Leever, Phlllipl, Camnltz, Ren der, Mathewson and others come to mind. Not one of this host of select twlrlers turned the trick during his first year in fast company. BIG SWIMMING MEET. A. A. U. Sets Dates For National Championahip Events. New York, Feb. 2S.

PACE SEVEN MORAN WORRIES ABOUT M'CARTDY LITTLE ENGLISHMAN SAYS REF EREE SHOULD HAVE STOP PED FATAL BOUT IN SIX TEENTH ROUND. Though Owen Moran steadily has been pursuing Ad. Wolgast for a bat tle for the title, that Is not the only thing on Owen's mind. It will be re membered that one afternoon last year, Moran hit Tommy McCarthy on the Jaw hard enough to send him to tho mat and the little Callfornlan was car ried away to the hospital, where he died. The Englishman worries as much about that affair maw as he did when the trag-dy occurred, and try as he may, he cannot help thinking of It. Moran expresses genuine sorrow every time McCarthy's death is mentioned snd he always Is ready with an ex planation. Though he struck the blowr which caused the death of McCarthy, Moran maintains, as he always has done, that the thing could have been t; verted if the proper course had been pursued. Moran declares that the bout should have been stopped long before the sixteenth round because McCarthy had been In bad shape for several rounds previous to that one and beaten be yond hope. He denies the rumors that the bout was fixed for the gamblera and declares he could have won when he pleased. "I'll tell how It was," said Moran. "My manager. Charley Harvey, came to me and asked me if I would fight McCarthy.- My answer was 'No'. The kid was a nice boy and Inexperienced and I didn't want to fight him for that reason. Rut so much had been said about McCarthy that I finally consent ed to meet him. "Never a thought of defeat entered my head. I knew I could beat Tommy from the time we matched. And I jlked the boy and I didn't Intend to hurt him If I could help It. Rut when I saw that he was growing weak and almost help. less. I decided thatl -would, end It there and save the boy any needles punishment. That was in the six teenth round. "Rut let mo tell you right here. It wasn't my punching that killed that boy. Prom the first round of the bat tle, when I hit McCarthy on his bad ear, the wound bled until he went to the floor unconscious. "Later they examined McCarthy at the hospital and discovered a fracture of the skull behind the left ear, the very place I had hit him ln the first round and from which be had been bleeding almost continuously for near ly an hour." "Now don't you think It reasonable to believe that McCarthv died from oss of blood as much aa from the blow delivered," said Moran. "It's logical o assume that he did isn't It?"
