January at 2.00 o'clock p.m.. to consider the desires of the'several clubs as to the season, of 1911. "It is very .important that we'should have a full representation and as there nre several very important matters to be it wil! be to have delegates fully Instructed by tJic-ir clubs so that all may act "When the Irngue for 1D11 is agreed the delegates to the meeting snould a schedule, and saou'd remain in Calgary un- til of the schedule details are agreul This win-save a lot of trouble experienced in. 1910. Tbe salary limit should also be threshed out and all ciubs should understand that they cannot ray ,in of the amount agreed upon. Tt has been suggested that should n-a'-re a special deposit as a guarantee that the salary limit will be observed. This salary limit has zihvays lsen a large question to handle, but this league must arrive at some definite plan; otherwise it will mean that the league's finish is in sight, for the organizr.tion cannot exist very long with clubs having so much difference in strength. Each club should consider itself as being a business partner with the balance of the league in promoting ihe great game, and ii they are prompted by ihe pro- per spirit, and the selfish disposition too often shown can be elim- inated, there is no reason why baseball cannot be made a great success from the financial standpoint as well as a season's pleasure to all lovers of good sport. "I would like to have you notify me without delay by letter or wire that you will have a- report at the meeting. All clubs must be prepared to pay balances against them so that the season of 1511 see all starting in with a clean theet. The only clubs so tar paying balances due -the are: Brandon, J1C-9.10; and bridge, The Calgary club has a credit clue them from the league of ?50.07, which will be paid when the clubs pay up the balances due.
