AH the team iiwinagers are busy and report grmt success in picking up fast players. Tbo minor league players seem to have special designs on plajing in ! ^he great n-est, anil it is not a difll-cult matter to s^i. signatures'to contracts to perform in the W.C.B.L. Tbe sauMs applies to umpires. Tha league aecntary is receiving numerous applications every day from indicator bandlers who want to catch a place in the west-and they most-' ly all have gilt edge references. The president and league directors are putting forth extra efforts to make the league a success for 1907. This is the first year for out and out professional baseball, and if tb>g�una can ha popularized and be an expense pa>'er, ex-en this season, iba success of the sport is assured for yicars to come. "Have you done anytbing with- reference to the schedule since the league conference in January?" was the first query aimed at the president. 'Yes, some changes have'been rondo, in the dates as drafted at the first J meeting and the changes sc6m to be teams will travel approximatKJJy: Eidmonton................3,845 miles. Cialgarj-......... ........... ...3,70(3 miiles Lcth1:ridge ...................3,794 miiles Medicine lint ...... ..........4,5.50 miles "Jn cold type Medicine Hat and Ediuonton appear to g�t. tha worst o* it, but such is not tho case. At the end of the season the mileage travelled will be eauatized and each team's traveling expense account will be exactly the samej" "What is the feeling Bimongst tho clubs regarding the selection of umpires?" "It is * little easy to discuss tho matter," was the presido�ts reply; "but I may say that a couple of the garj- fun mixes the dope for the opening of tlX! ball season in this way Cal^^ary will take the lead at tihe first of the s^as-n. with Medicine Hat second. This is how ho docs it: Calgary's nwnager is picking up his players in the centre of tlie baseball count(y. There aro all kinds of players in Massat-hussetts and noifih-borini; states and this gives Thyme every .opportunity to pick up men who ai'e possibly fast cnougih in doss C company, but have to be content with a iottier ratinj;, ibecause the ,woods are full of players down there. This is what is going to put Calgary ahc�vd riijht at the jump. Ih n for Medicine Hat, Nerstheim-citi�s seem to favor the appointinent 'er, ttie jfas town manager, will select of two first class local men from | his players from through Ohio and Edmonton and Calgary. For myself'that neighborhood, where thare are I prefer outsiders* and tho further I also a surplus of players. His con-Ihey come from this province, and nontions in this way will be almost th� less they know about our people, as good as that o''t'eem. the better will it be for the game. �> Deacon White ia picking most of Ibere will be no ditliculty getting hi.s men from tha western states and good, oflicials as we are deluged with applications for positions." "Have th3 league clubs put up the guarantee money yet?" "Not yet," was the president's response; "they haven't teen called upon for the cash yet; but they will t� expected to make good this week Two hundred and fifty dollars is ro-c^uircd. which will be forfeited if any club fails to finish tha season or violates the salary law. In case any such mishap occurs the 9250 will bo divided among the other toanos." "\n allotting dates does the schedule give the teams home games during exhibition week?" "Oh, yea; that contingency w-as provided for,, but may not work out any too well financially for Calgary at least. According to present arrangements, Calgbry will ibe at home for 18 straigfat games prior t,o and including tho fair dates. This may possibly be rectified, though to daitio very satisfactory. Copies o mlattcr of good. roads, there also looms up the intimately ossociatcd civic feature of markets, which aro aflFect�d lor better or worse by road conditions.
