V i t Jeff Merely Wanted to Be Wised Up on a Point of Law, That's I ssssass-s ' wfc 1 ii y ..I, , i ,i mi i .. ii . -s ' " " Ltrr fn rQ Jr t , U ieoattnfsvjrrn. 1 - r, XW Urov ua.c. , Pl,,D HCA.oTM6vc.eNce I n Rono.tu , " s O NOW that the Innlde facts of the class A A deal at San Antonio have been thoroughly digested and we have had tlmo for careful consideration, it strikes us that th only advantage In this higher class ification to the three organizations com prising It la nominal that It elves them the right to say they are above the regu lar class A leagues. We think the East ern and Paolflo Coast leagues and the American association fully appreciate that and went into this proposition only be cause they had made promises of ad vancement to their patrons, which they folt had to be redeemed, if only in name. But we can't see how they are going to break even on that. The deal Is not com plete aa yet and will not be until it passes muster with the National commission. If that high court of base ball ratifies the "action at San Antonio, the three leagues comprising this class AA organisation will, so far as we can Bee, have the lone advantage of being considered a faster league and of being In a higher clnslf (ca tion nominally. To offset this It will havu the disadvantage of higher salary rolls, higher draft prices to pay and higher de .manda of the public to satisfy. Will its bigger name draw enough more spectators through the turnstiles to-pmpensate for this? We doubt it. Oh, you say the clasB AA teams get the privilege of drafting ' the same as the majors enjoy. But you are wrong, they don't. What they get Is the right to draft from these class A leagues after the majors get through drafting. How much desirable maeerlal do you Suppose there will be to draft then? And another thing right along thlj line suppose Western league of class A team had a choice player It wanted to keep and whom none of the majors cared I for, the class A team could, protect Itself by getting a major to make a phoney draft, covering up the player away from the class AA team. That, you say, would not be on the square. Oh, well, aa long as something Ilka that always has been done Jt would at least be no Innovation. .Can you find a class A team today that Is not n good enough terms with some one major league team to put through this ort of a deal? We are here expressing view that Is commonly shared by Western league and be believe all other class A magnates. Otherwise, why did they not try to defeat this proposition at San An tonio? We are assured that they had the necessary votes pledged. If they cared to uee them, but that after looking into the matter, they deemed It harmless and pre ferred saving these votes for another proposition. If the cpmmlaslon endorses this deal, It will mean that hereafter Western and other class A league teams muest receive $1,600 Instead of 11,000 for a drafted man and the rates will be ad vanced all along the line, so that that. In addition to the higher salaries which the three Class AA leagues will be obliged to pay. will militate as disadvantages to them and the draft price will be a very considerable advantage to the minors. It looks like a sop to vanity and that is about all. which shrewd Messrs. Tebeau et al.. have produced for themselves and a gold brick for their fans. One of the surest benefits to ensue from the rule of restricting the number of re cruits major league team may hold will be better training for the young Player In. the minors. Many a young player has been harmed or ruined by pre mature promotion. He is only one of many medlocrea In a major league team and will get little or no special atten tion, whereas he may be the star on the minor clubs, or whether he is or not. he will receive all he special training his manager and elders can give him. and It will make him a much better player than had he gone up too soon. Take the case of Jim Kane. When he came from Pittsburgh, where he had played about a third of a season, he knew not-one-fourth the base ball he knows now. or knew even at the end of his first seaaon with Omaha. Rourke and Buck Frank and other older heads laid themselves out to help Jim. who was only a big kid. and Kans is there with any cf them today. It has been the same with players un numbered. The result or im. n,i. i .. is observed as It should be, will help both minors and majors. President Rourke says ho will depend more than ever next seaaon on the bunt ing game. He and Manager Arbogast are agreed on the efficacy of this siyle cf play. Rourke believes in It because It has brought results for hira. Well, this can bo said: He has In Arbogast. hlra iclf; Jim Kane, Nlehoff. Thomason. a nucleus of the best little bunting team on the circuit. Kane, without a doubt, has the bunt more nearly perfected than any man in the league and better than all. he uts it, like Hannibal of old, at t!io most unexpected times. Many an admirer of Hugh Jennings breathed relief at the news that his acci dent was not necessarily fatal. His re covery will be the object of soHcltude. After all. Hodges probably Is right In ayliig he will not sell the Browns, still, there is nothing to prevent hltn giving them away. The report that Colonel Hedges will sell the Browns la denied. Then he ought to snake a ball team of them. All that Pa Ilourka is saying just now in that he Is satisfied the way things are fins. (fcKKlbye, fvot bail, take keer ' your sUf, it you caa.

All season the Monmouth Parks have eluded the Shamrocks and the Irishmen have been 'hot on their trail. The South Omaha lads will play them any time, any place and for money if they so desire. Next year the Diets will blossom out strong and again endeavor to stow away the championship. Christmas is the day when those "all star" gangs will collide. v One team will be under the direction of Frank Qulgley and the other under the skillful guldanoe of Harry Callahan.

GOOD MEN BEW0 DEVELOPED Nina Games of Foot Ball Are Played and of Tola Number Creighton Wins Three, Loses Fonr and Ties Two. It seems certain that Coach Miller will coach the Creighton team next season. The team has just gone through a season fraught with reverses. It has at times shown flashes of great foot ball, but has gone throught the entire season In rather irregular fashion. Of nine games played, Creighton won three, lost four and tied two. The difference In points amounts to 12 for the opponents against 123 points for Creighton. The season had a disastrous opening when Creighton went down to defeat be fore Western Union college by the score of 27 to 0. The next game occurred against Yankton, at Yankton, 8. D., and resulted In a tie. in the following game Creighton overwhelmed the University of Omaha by the score of 06 to 0. Omaha university was outweighed and outplayed and little Importance is attached to this victory. The beat game of the season took place on the local campus against Morning side In which Creighton proved victor by the close score of 8 to 6. These two teams seemed equal In all departments, but Jap Tamasee's superior boot gave Creighton the advantage. In- South Dakotif university Creighton met Its superior and the one-sided score of Si to 3 Is a Just estimate of the teams' relative strength. The team then Jour neyed to Manhattan, Kan., and met de feat at the hands of the Kansas Aggies by the score of U to 0. There was little to choose In the superior merits of these two team and Creighton was by no means outplayed. Hut an exceptionally ktrong wind that blew throughout the game gavo play to the fates, who figured largely In this victory of iho Agxles. The strong MarquHte cleen was the next opponent tu administer defeat by the score of 44 to 17. The game took place at Milwaukee and was played on a field rovered with ice and the heavier Mar quette buuch proved superior under these conditions. The fast unbeaten eft. Thomas team followed thlb with a 0 to 0 tie. KlaUh with letury. The wlmlup of iho season was a 32 to 0 victory fur 'iclliton over the Des Moines aggrr gallon. in this game t-relgnton worked all their foot ball and gave an In.slght Into their real capabilities. Whatever tlie failure of the team, U cannot be attributed to inferior coaching. Coach Miller has worked hard and has made the beat of the material at hand. He has Introduced a number of plays that have never been equalled on the local campus and has completely mystified very opponent He has developed a few players that give promise of a brilliant future.

John son Is taken at his word and Is being left out of the discussion, Joe Jeannett and Sam Langford have all along been looked upon as the next In line for the title and Jeannette has not been slow to admit his ability to fill the position. At the present time he Is out with a chal lenge to any man In the world to flKht for the title. Sam Langford Is preferred, but as he is now on his way to Australia In search of some 'easy money, Jeannette wll have to look elsewhere for action.

Apperson "Jack Baker Electric BRUSH RUNABOUT "Bud" Fisher games up, drawn games not to connfi whereas In former championship matches played by Leaker the number of games was eight up, while with Bchlechter he played ten games In all, drawn games counting half a point to each In that contest. While In former matches 6f that nature $."40 was asked for forfeit, the champion stipulates that Capablanca would have to put up 12.000 for forfeit, but the most re markahle rule of all Is that to govern the time limit. Lacker says that the time limit would nave to be twelve moves an hour, a time limit never be fore arranged In any previous matoh. There are also soma regulations, espe cially those anent th notice to begin the match, which are rather objectionable; In fact. It may become a physical Impos sibility to reach the place of combat within the short notice to be given. The conditions fall to state how many games should be played weekly, neither do they state how often a player might excuse himself from playing In case he should be 111 or indisposed. Of course twelve moves an hour would be too slow a time limit for Capablanca, and ' Mnnager llosebatilt thinks that fif teen moves an hour should be substituted; for twelve, "We shall also want ; to know," said Manager Rosenault, "how many games will be scheduled a week and how often a player might absent himself from play for good cause. These things ought to be clearly stated in the conditions of the matoh. However. Capablanca Is due her In a few days and we shall then send out; (.answer to the champion."
