The local fleet was incrDased yes terday with another arrival of a for eign vessej, this being the Russian schooner Uranus, thirty days out from Seville, Spain, which is in port, for the purposa of loading a cargo of lumber. Upon reaching port the small ocean traveler was released and upon coming over to the city was boarded by Inspector Bailey, who was .on duty yesterday at the barge office. Other Vessels Released. Three other vessels were released from the quarantine station yester day and the inspector who elected to remain on duty over Sunday had all he could do. 'The other vessels re leased were the Norwegian steamship Taunton, the Russian bark Tjermai and the American schooner Anna D. Heidritter. Another .vessel remained at quarantine yesterday. This was the Italian bark San Antonio, which was towed up to the station at a late hour Saturday afternoon by the tug Sea King, which was returning to her home port from Mobile, to which point she towed the old barkentine Success. The Italian vessel will be released today. Four Go to Sea. Four vessels went to sea yesterday, The Uruguayan bark Port Sonachan went over the bar, bound for Valen cia; the British ship Centurion was towed down the bay, bound for Lon don, but it was reported had an chored for the night off the navy yard because of a change in the wind; the American schooner Clara Davis start ed out for Leghorn, Italy, and tho American schooner Charles W. Miller went over the bar, towed by the tug Nellie, for Mobile. Bunker Steamer Due. The British steamship Quito, with cargo, was looked for last evening, coming for bunker coal. It was re ported she had left Saturday for Tensacola, her loading port being Gulfport, Miss. The steamer had net showed up at dark, and consignees and inspector left the dock. She will be off the bar at an early hour this morning, it is expected, and win pro ceed immediately up to the coai chutes for a supply. There are quite a number of steam ers due this week for bunker, several coming from foreign ports. There was much activity in the port this morning and yesterday afternoon on account four schoonera loaded for three or four days waiting for the northerly winds which came last eve ning. The tugs Dewey, of ,the Ger man American Lumber Co.; and Nel- ie of the Aiken Tow Boat and Barge Co., Pensacola, were busy moving out the vessels. It is thought that al though the schooners Elhi M. Willey and Hugh de Pa yens towed out sev eral days ago they havo not made much headway beating. ' The schooner Seguin' finished tak ing cargo this morning, which only leaves the one schooner Prydwen now loading in this port. , Several other schooners are expected within the next few days, when there will be an other rush for everal days. The schooner Crescent, out of this port the latter part of September for Canary Islands, has put in port after ninety days put. She arrived at her destination without very little damage, except the loss of deck load. Much apprehension was felt for her safety, inasmuch as two or three other larger vessels had lost in the same territory with the Crescent. VESSELS" IN PORT. Steamers. Temple E.

Pensacola may have league base-' ball next "season by taking over one of the Cotton States league fran chises. It is understood that one of the clubs which did not make a good showing the past season, nor ,. the previous year, while not announcing its desire to unload the franchise, would, welcome the help of some good, live baseball town and would relin quish the berth to said town. Pen sacola fans, therefore, have their ears .to the ground, and if certain plans which have been drawn up, and which are now being discussed, are given encouragement, it will mean torganized ball here during the 1917 season. There is no definite announcement to make as yet. It is understood that shortly there wfll be an offer made to local baseball enthusiasts, and if the latter are given the proper en couragement, it will mean the prpb able re-establishment of Maxent park as a ball centre. . Pensacola's experience in . the Cot ton States in 1913 is not one of glorious exploits. It was a bad sea son for baseball in the south, and that year, in the latter part, the Cotton States "blew up," as Manager Ham ilton, of the Pensacola club that ill fated season, would say. Now that the local interest seems to be strong er, and tnere appears to be more readiness in co-operation, there is ev ery reason to believe that a deter- mined effort to arouse interest m baseball here would be - encouraged. A few days ago, a report from New Orleans stated that Pensacola's prob able connection with the Cotton States in the new season was being discussed in the Crescent City. This1 item was given publicity, and it served to arouse the local baseball in terest. Some of those who were in terested "in Pensacola in the old "league days"" are ready to aid in any movement looking to the re habilitation of Maxent or any other playing park, and it is expected that the idea will be taken up and passed along for what it is worth. Jim Hamilton, Pensacola's man ager, is to hold the reins in the North Carolina circuit this coming season, and may have the Asheville club. At least that is the information which the sporting editor of the Charleston American has, and this is the way he discusses it in a late issue: Hamilton's Latest Venture. ' According to a letter received by President W. H. Walsh, of the Charleston Baseball club, yesterday, James A. Hamilton, who piloted the Sea Gulls last year, has signed with the Asheville, North Carolina, league club. ' The letter giving this item was received from Mike Finn, the maker of baseball schedules and scout for the Detroit American league club. Just where Mikejrot his dope is not known, but as no formal announce ment of the selection of Hamilton by the North Carolina club has been made yet, the dope is accepted as un official. The Asheville club recently lost its manager, Jack Corbett, who hooked on with the Columbia team. Whether James has been grabbed as Corbett's successor is unknown officially and the report of Hamilton's connection The Journal's "Want Ad way will get you results. with the mountain city club" comes only from Finn. ' Jim is a great pilot and no doubt can hold his own in the North Caro lina circuit, if handed the reins. He first came to Charleston back in 1913, when he took the club over for the last month of the season and mad such headway that President Walsh retained him for the 1914 sea son. Jim came here from Pensacola, when the old Cotton States league blew up, bringing with him LeRue Kirby and Jim Gudger. In the 1914 campaign, which was a split season, the Sea Gulls finished second in both halves, but as a mat ter of fact won more games and lost fewer than any other team in a whole season. Dividing the season robbed Hamilton and Charleston of a pen nant. The next year 1915 President Walsh and Hamilton could not agree on terms and Jim hit the trail for the West, landing with the Cedar Rapids club of the. Central association, a class D circuit. The traveling there was tough for the CHicago man and he resigned about midseason. During the off season he and Mr. Walsh man aged to reach an agreement and Hamilton came back here last spring. Charleston fans know the results of the past race. Jim gave Charleston a good ball club, just as ne did in 1914, but again could not win. His contract was for one season only and this year no effort was made to get Hamilton here again. In fact President Walsh decided some time ago that he would do without Jim in 1917. ' Hamilton is anxious to play in the Sally this year, , and. for several sea sons Jacksonville made him an offer annually. A letter received some time ago from Jim was to the effect that he has offers to pilot a club in the New York State league and also from a club in the Texas league. He had not decided then which he would ac cept, if any. He is at present at work in a large department store in Chicago. DESTROYER TO D ORLEANS After remaining in Pensacola for a week or more, the destroyer Ster rett cast off lines yesterday and went down the bay, on her way to New Or leans, in which port she will join the destroyers of a specially assigned squadron, to make a trip up the Mis sissippi river, chiefly for the purpose of encouraging navy recruiting. It is expected that this fleet will proceed as far north as navigation permits, remaining some weeks on the great river, and making long stops at a number of points." At New . Orleans the destroyer Smith has been reported arriving. The Sterrett was under orders to join the destroyer Monaghan and Lai son off Mobile, and the three go into the Crescent City. .
