The result was that Tait offered to meet Haskell over the ten round route here on February 28th, with a stipulation that, he would meet Phil Bloom, the New York lightweight about March 10th. Tait is very anxious to box here, and with the Haskell and Bloom matches assured the fans arc certain of something classy in the way of fisticuffs in the fag end of the boxing season.

Barrow as manager of the Red Sox. The news of the selection of Barrow as the Boston club's new manager was not unexpected. Earlier in the evening Barrow announced that his resignation as president of the International league which he tendered to that organization last December, had been accepted. | He also stated that at a meeting of i the class AA league here today a compromise had been offered him in regard tb an increase of salary, which had been reduced from $7500 to $2500 a year at the December meeting. Bar-] row said that he was negotiating for ! another position, which he expected to accept some time tonight, and he had refused to reconsider his resignation.

WHITE SOX OWNER SAID NO Refused Spring Barnstorming Tour With N. Y. Giants John McGraw and his Giants had a scheme worked out to steal the world's championship away from the White Sox next spring in the sunny south, but Boss Comiskey of the Sox saw through the plot and evaded it. McGraw was anxious to hook up with the Sox for a barnstorming tour on the return from the training camps, a trip such as he made with the Detroit Tigers last year. No doubt such a circus with two champion teams would have drawn the folks of the smaller cities through the gates in hordes and made the training trip a financial success, but Comiskey refused to allow a world's championship to be dimmed and turned the scheme down. If the Sox happened to lose a majority of - such games they wouldn't look like such wonders when the regular season opened. The Old Roman always lias been opposed to playing exhibition games with any other major league team before the season opens. { MORE REDUCTION IN Winnipeg, Feb. 11.-Taking effect Sunday.
