Oliver, Peakfe and Schad, in a telegram from President Redus, from Meridian, stilting that the league season would open -in Pensaco!a with either Jack sen or Meridian. The local directors were kept busy all. day yesterday considering the ap pointment of a manager and signing up a team for the season. There axe only a' few days left, as the season opens on April 10th. The schedule has not yet been , completed, but' will! d within the next lew flays. .

The prospects at this time assure Pensa cola of having one of the best teams In the league. ' Manaflrer "Topey" Hartael has -assured the local management that he would- piece several crackerjack play ers within reach of th- local team. and while nothing definite could be given out last night It Is known that several first-class men have been of fered positions on the team. "I offered the local management several good players," said Mnaser Kartvel, of the Toledos, last night, "for the reason, as I have .before stated, that I have more men than I need just new. I couHd place them elsewhere Just as well, but I am Interested in Pensacola, and so are the men Whom I would be glad to turn over to this city. They are being, sought else where, but .they prefer to stay here, and I want to see Pensacola with a pennant winning team." There are about twenty -five tickets yet to bo disposed of and the directors k not anticipate having: any trouble In placing them. Pensacola has made It known that she Is in the baseball world and those lna position to know say that the Deep Water City will be in the game from the opening to the dose of the season of 1913.

Morey, representing Charles NBwell, who was convicted 'by a jury Wednes day night in the criminal court of an unprintable crime served notice yes terday that they would appeal the case. In view of the' fact that an appeal will be taken in the case, Judge Beggs did not pass sentence upon the de fendant yesterday, although he did not sonify what action he would, take in the matter. Newell was remand?d to jail where he will remain until the final dispo sition of - his case. "In my judgment,, said SoSrcltor Scott Loftuv "the verdict was abso lutely a-ut one, and one which I would have been willing to have ac cepted before the case went to trial. No date haa yet been agreed upon for the arguments by counsel for a new trial in the case, but It is prob able that tho matter will be taken up bf ore Judge Beggs immediately.' Chicago baseball enthusiasts are planning a "Prank Chance Day"- for the first appearance of the New York Yankees in Chicago May 15- The fans have bought up 2,000 seats on the first base side of the grounds, hoping that the former leader of the Chicago Cubs will be able to play the initial sack on that day. An automobile parade, headed by a brass band and police es cort will precede the game. The game between the Cleveland Americans and Mobile Southern league teams which was to (have been played In Mobile Wednesday, was called off on account of rain- The Mobile Reg ister says that of the three big league teams which have played there this season, Detroit, Cincinnati and Cleve land,' the latter are in the far best shape. Regarding the cluba the Regis ter says: "Rain broke up the scheduled game between the Cleveland Naps and the Gulls yesterday afternoon, a down pour in the eecond inning causing Umpire Pat Wright to call time, the igame finally being called off after a heavy downpour 'had soaked the grounds. "If rain, which has seriously ham pered the spring training work of baM clubs all over the country, fails to put in its daily appearance this afternoon, Mike Finn's Southern leaguers will battle with Joe Birmingham's Cleve land Naps at the ball park this after noon. "The Naps, judging from their prac tice work and the two Innings of play yesterday, are in far better condition than any ball club seen here this spring, and will put up a irreat game. The Naps are picked to finish well up in the American league." If you miss your paper, phone (1500) before ten o'clock, and one will be de livered you bv special carrier. PICKINGS FROM POLICE STATION Eighteen cases were tried in the re corder's court yesterday morning, the fines amounting: to $19.00. H. Harrison, C. Lyman, and Malachi Johnson were charged with having re moved sand from the streets without the permit of the city authorities. The three men explained to the satisfaction of the court that as soon as they learned that they were violating the law they promptly abandoned that work. They were, as a result, dis charged, with the admonition from the court not to repeat the offense. The other cases were of minor im portance, constituting- drunk, disorder ly, fighting and vagrancy case. Walter Johnson, probably the speedi est pitcher in baseball and the main spring of the Washington American hurling staff, say he expects the com ing season to be the best he has ever had. His reason is that he is in better health than In any preceding spring. He believes that he will be better fitted vmi,H Viart untnn than vr ivr (in viipii. w -- . - - - . before and that. In addition, .he wllll have a better team behind mm than the Nationals In the past have present ed. These two things he thinks, should make him surpass all his previous brilliant records. If Walter's predic tions cortie out as he thinks, he will make 'em all take a back seat. Only Wood and Plank stood ahead of him in the percentage tables last year. He won 32 games and lost 1Z. forced Jack Redmond to throw up the sponge in seven rounds. That has en couraged him to start on a tour east, with the hope of forcing matches with the best lightweights, fceach Coss and Knockout Brown Preferred - Latr. Pal hopes to use Joe Mandot as a stepping stone to a match with Willie Ritchie. It Is to be noticed that the sporting pages already are printing prognostica tions of the minor-league restlnsr plnces of numerous hopeful recruits; also, that there is a great debate on as to which of sixteen teams look best quallfid to win the pennant In th American and National leagues. Evidently, the gTeat national port is with us again. YOUTHFUL BACKSTOP MAKING A VAUANT ATTEMPT TO LAND JOB WITH WHITE SOX1 i 1 fiiKiSiiMi1 i dry-,.

They ueclare that thev wlll train until Julj if Oxford and Cambridge will agree to no earlier date for their intemntlonal track meet with 11 -SfEW. Not content with winnings-eleven- and lcsing live games last year, Leon Amies, pitcher for the New York Giants, Is striving to add to his effectiveness this year by learning the spitball- This most difficult of deliveries Is said to be assuming exceedingly ef- -iSv'ttfS : c: !S ' iff 4 wJiT .HID feetive proportions under the persist ent endeavor of Ames. The curve is breaking in a style calculated to be sadly baffling to the batter. Ames now is working to gain control, and is said to be making rapid progress in this esfential- Wlth the spitball added to his rep ertoire, Ames should make all the hurlers in the National league Ihustle for the honors, and, instead of rank ing fifth with only nine complete jfames to his credit, should sro through twice as many contests, at least, with Phlilip Gossett. San Francisco, March 19. Youthful Phillip Gossett, junior candidate for backstop on the Chicago White Sox In training in these parts, has a tough row to hoe. To land a regular job he will have to beat out one of the reliable quartet of experienced and brainy regulars. Strong points in favor of Phil are his ambition and evident ability to Improve with practice- ,He has been only two years In profession baseball, spending both of them with the St. Joseph club of the Western league. He played in 118 games his first season, when only nineteen years old, and last season figured In 135. In the same period, he raised his batting average from .210 to .240- Gossett comes from central Ohio, where he played for severail years on Independent teams. TOLEDO WILL 'LAY YANIGA IS SERIES SCHEDULED, WHICH WILL AFTERNOON. OF THREE GAMES IS THE FIRST OF EE PLAYED THIS The Toledo team and the Cleveland Yanigans this afternoon will play the first of a series of games at Maxent park, and Manager Hartsel of the M"d Hens, whose boys lost to the Cleve land regulars, expects to get revenge on the Yanigans in these contests. The Toledo boys were not in as good shape as the regnlars when the games were played last week, for the Napa had been at practice for a month, while the Mud Hens had only been in the City for a week. The games between the Yanigans and Toledo boys will therefore be much closer and more ex citing. Read The Journal's Want Ads and Profit thereby. THE JOURNAL'S COMMERCIAL WEATHER MAP Kowlingr la said to represent a far greater Investment than any other indoor sport. Affording to reports from bowling officials and owners of alleys there are In this country 21.250 buildings, rooms, and stores a vera gin? four alleys to each place. This would represent an Investment of $42 000.000. If each alley brought in but three dollars, the dally receipts would be $340,000 and the money for the yesr. not including Sundays, would total $798,159, 000. Who said bowling was a cheap sport? One touch of sport certainly would seem to take the whole world kin. The Olym pic games have illustrated this tendency throughout. Now. it is announced. Amer ica and France, for the first time in the history of golf, are to meet on the links. In an International team match. Six pro fessionals' are to be sent by the United States Golf Association late in June to France to meet the best of France's pro's. Four regulars will compose each team, with two substitutes.

Former champ ion -maker Ed Reul bach, pitcher for the Chicago Cubs, isn't having- any too easy a. time of it this spring:. J-ust the other day, when he was pitching for the regulars, the yanigans in two innings got to him for seven hits, five passes, and a hit batter- It was not so in the good old days. Those Boston Braves sure do have touch luck. Manager Stallings now is trying to convert Art Bues, ths slugging third-baseman. Into an out fielder because of the dearth of capa ble fly-chasers. The only other play ers available are Seymour. Kirke, Jackson and Titus. Kirke is below standard In fielding, while Seymour's pins are not what they used to be. The retirement of Vincent Campbell, the stellar outergardener, is a serious loss to the team. An interpreter is c.arrled by th Washington club fcr the benefit of the two young Cuban players, Acosto aivl Calvo, who Ijave not yet mastered Eng lish. They play ball cleverly, though. Calvo is a bunter of the Willie Keeler type, while Acosta is a remarkably heavy hitter. The Interpreter, it may be explained. Is none other than Je Oallia, pitcher held on trial from the Kansas City club of the American As sociation, lie speaks Spanish fluent ly, and has practically adopted the two Cubans. Talking about natural hitters our old friend J. Franklin Baker, of the Philadelphia Athletics would appear to be one. The man who broke the hearts I of Mathewson and Marquard celebrat ed his first appearance In uniform the other day by battling out three singles, a double, and a triple in an exhibition game with the San Antonio club. This Indian, Jim Thorpe, refuses to be downed by the white man's game of big league baseball. He has prettv nearly won himself a place as a regu lar outfielder of the Now Ycrk Giants, In spite of ragged fielding. He boost ed his stock considerably tho other day when, in a practice game between the yanigans and the regulars, he knocked a home run off the delivery of one Christy Mathewson. About the last time anybody had done that was in the world's series of 1911. when one J. Frank Baker, of Trappe. Md.. simi larly abused one of Matty's most se lect slants. Matty still Is wondering how the aborigine did it. In spite of the attitude of Indiffer ence taken by Muggsy McGraw, tlr Giant manager would appear to b worrying a bit about the continued hold-out of Southpaw Rube Marquard. Muggsy sent Scott Dick Kinsela out to San Francisco recently to see what the Rube thought about things In general. Dick found that the hurler-actor hadn't been doing a single bit of thinking since he last declared that he intend ed to remain on the stage rather than play under the terms of the three-year contract by which he still is held. mm President Jimmy MAIeer, of th Boston Red Sox is confident that his team will repeat and this year again, win the American league pennant. H says that the team is 25 per cent stronger in every department than it was a year ago. for his players are all young men bound to Improve in ability. He declares that the Athletic?, which Connie Mack has prophesied will land on top, can hardly be ex pected to find their veteran pitching staff, upon which Mack relie. as pood as last year. Still, Jimmy admits that Connie has the best infield in the league. It's a cinch that the Athletics; and some other teams, too. will mak the Red Sox hustle. Some of them ap pear to be even more than 25 per cent better than last year New York. Cleveland and St. Louis being ex amples. TJnrrersitv of Pennsylvania rooters lik their football team.
