Rosenthal had been informed thai .Bruce Stuart and Lake were in Montreal for the purpose of assisting in -the formation of a Players' Asso- ciation. At StuarL's home it was said that Bruce had not gone to Montreal. Lake was also here, but it is under- stood that both paid a flying visit to Montreal Tuesday night to interview Art Ross, Riley Hern and others. Mar- thy Walsh, Albert Kerr and others of the Ottawa team say that they have heard nothing about the Pro- tective Association, but they will cer- tainly not play under the ?50G salary .limit rule.

BIG MINOR LEAGUES DEMANDS OUTLIVED Eastern and American Organizations Want Higher Classification Chicago, Nov. of re- quests made by .the American Associa- tion at previous meetings of the Na- tional Association -of- Professional Baseball Clubs, 'explains the failure of the growing minor to have an official representative at the recent gathering of the big baseball commission in Chi cago. President Thomas Clivington, of the American Association, yesterday offer ed a little right on the disinterested attitude of the Association toward the national body. The feature of the annual meeting last week was the failure of the Am erican Association to even put in j> request for the re-classification which would raise the American Association and Eastern League into class by themselves, to be rated as AA. This had been given out as ons of the points which would surely brine up a heated fight during the course of the gather- ing. The threateneo move dirt not ma terialize, howoever, for the simple rea- son that the American Assbciatior magnates regarded the hopeless and preferred to wait No definite line of been mapped out yet, but indications point toward but one combination or the Eastern League and Americar Association in a demand for a raise in'the classification lists.

HQ leg is all right again. Many close-watching and unbiased critics, after sizing up the Na- tional league aggregations, are frankly of the opinion that John J. McGraw's Giants look like the most reliable goods for 1911. View from almost any angle, the Giants look good. The faults of the team are not so serious that they are liable to trip it up in its progress toward the. flag, and the good .qualities of the club stick out like a red-headed 'man's dome at an Italian festival. Billy Gilmaur, that wonderful wing player who has made goal keepers look foolish and whose" manipulation of the rubber plug has brought a rink- ful of people to its feet, is at present located in Ottawa and they do say Billy may again be seen in the Ottawa uniform. Billy played with Ottawa two seasons ago when they won the Stanley Cup from. Wanderers, and it was his shot snapped in from in front of the net that gave Ottawa a victory on the Montreal Arena when then was but five odd seconds to play. He laid off last winter and still being a yo.ung man. would strengthen up the team considerably. .ball players canvbe induced to go.into the ring' under any consideration, .their, bare -fists, on tie slightest provocation... ;Abe.
