AMUSEMENT CO.
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-

was a first expected. This change in
tho plans was decided upon no that
the patrons would be assured of new
attractions, Parker Pros., having vis
ited Calumet on several occasions
'While the Parker Rros. Fhowa are
the largest in the country, there is
every reason to believe that better

these of any single Parker Rros.' show
if this year's effort Is a success. It Is
likely that tho mid-summer carnival
'Will become an annual feature in
Laurium. Those who have taken th
initiative are enthusiastic over the
outlook and believe that a big attrac
tion of this kind will serve to stim
ulate trade and arouse public Interest
In the community, resulting In a bet
ter feeling between the business men
and others.

POIIIICS WARMING UP IN
LAURIUM BEFORE CAUCUS
With the nominating caucus only
two days away, considerable Interest
Is. manifested in political matters In
the village of Laurium, and it is evi
dent that some warm fights may be
expected. The contents this year seem
to be confined entirely to the vacan
cies on the council, Joseph Wills, who
Is a candidate to succeed W. J. Rey
nolds as president, having no opposi
tion and no candidates having ap
peared for the offices of clerk, treas
urer or assessor.
J. II. Manier this morning- announced
his candidacy for one of the positions
on the council, making the sixth can
didate to enter the race. Hcrnard
Holmstrom and John II. 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. It
Is possible that a fifth vacancy may
appear as Samuel JefTery, one of the
trustees of the village left yesterday
for Lansing where he will enter the
state Insurance department.
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. There were rumors yes
terday that Mr. Wills would have op
position for the position ef president
but when Interviewed today, the man
most prominently mentioned In this
connection stated that he had decided
not to run.
ASSUMES DUTIES TOMORROW.
John T. McDonald to Becoma Deputy
Game Warden.
John T. McDonald of Laurium, tho
rercently appointed deputy etato game
and fish warden will tomorrow assume
his new duties. Mr. McDonald has
spent the last few days with Deputy
St. Clair Wilson of the Portage Lake
district familiarizing l.I:v.ic:r with his
duties and Is now propared to take
charge of his work. The members of
tho various rod and gun clubs of the
copper country will doubtless co-op
crate with Mr. McDnnahl in the en
forcement of the law.
Members of tho Austrian rod and
gun club of Calumet, on Sunday took
about ten pair of Jack Rabbits Into
Keweenaw county where they were set
free for the purpose of propogatlon
This Is no experiment with the mem
bers of the Austrian rod and gun club
as a large number of rabbits have been
taken to Keweenaw county during the
last few months, and it Is belleveel the
time Is nol far distant when excellent
hunting will be provided.

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.

COLE AN EXCEPTION.
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.

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.

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?"
NEGROES GET FAIR PLAY.
But They Are the Only Foreigners
Whom Paris Accords it.
Paris, Feb. 28. The sorest man In
