If some of the old timers whose sur- viving friends are wont to flount be- fore the public as having a little something -on any one who ever step- ped into shoe leather can surpass the feats of skill of Hans Wagner, a lot of young men' who weren't blessed by being torn earlier want. to know. Everything considered, Wagner is about the greatest human machine for playing baseball that ever ap- peared upon a diamond. There is no comparison between him and otter shortstops in fielding. He leads the league iii base running. He tops the list .of batters. He is the greatest slugger. And above all, he has a head that conceives :plays'. .rapidly, and that never fails to take' advan- tge of every opportunity'offered. From. the time Wagner started in baseball he was one of the most awk- ward men in the game. When the Iron and Oil League broke up in 1895 and Wagner was looked over by several tEastern League managers, along' Ritchey and others, the younger-Wagner, -was pass- ed up in favor of AL because Hans was so awkward. Yet, inside of two years he was at Louisville, and when that club was transferred to Pitts- burg went along and has been the vsensation of the National League ever since. Wagner started in professional base- ball in 1895 at Warren, Pa. Later that season he was with Steubenville, Ohio, and in 1896 was with Paterson, N. J. He joined Louisville in 1897, and has been with Fred Clarke ever since. His methods of fielding are pecul- iar. He shuffles about the ball field in. ungainly strides. He reaches for batted and thrown balls with either hand, gathering them iri with his oversized paw and throwing true as a rifle. He bats with a long, free swing, and runs bases with a crouch- ing, ungainly stride. But he covers the ground. He makes plays no other shortstop could make, because he combines the quickness a small man with the strength of a giant. When lie started in baseball Wag- ner was an. ignorant German youth. Today he lias acquired a polish through long association with men of manners. Likewise he has accumuiat ad considerable real estate, some brewery and other stock, an automo- bile: and other indications of wealth. He could retire from baseball today and be independently rich. Players of his ability come only once ,to a generation, and a second Hans Wagner is not yet in sight. Al- though 12 years in the major leagues, he looks good far 10 more, as he has played faster this .year than ever before. His retirement, if permanent, would be a serious loss to baseball.

MEETING OF THE LEAGUE A meeting: of the Western Canada Baseball League will ba held in Med- icine Hat on October 25. At this meeting the question of the circuit for next season will be decided upon de- finitely. GENERAL SPORTING DEACON WHITE TO MANAGE EDMONTON (Calgary Albertun) The apointment of "Deacon" White as manager for the Edmonton base- ball team for next though not yet definitely decided upon, is al- most an assured fact. "Deacon" would have put Edmonton in the run- ning this season, and will certainly make it a factor next seaspn. He is a good baseball leader, and knows the game down to the ground, and from thence upward. After the ex- perience of Edmonton it is hardly likely that any Alberta team will make- the mistake of having an east- erner for team manager. The Alberta teams have one field for strengthen- ing up. That is the Northwestern league. The eastern man, not being in touch with western conditions, is at sea when it comes to getting coast players. Toronto is talking of erecting rink for hockey and sporte. Waganui (Australian) sporting' men may offer sculling champion' Ernest Barry, of England and1 expenses if he will go to New Zealand and TOW Richard Arnst for the cham- pionship and a -side. Emilo Lunghi, the Italian snorlx distance runner, who has been mak- ing fast time in eastern meets, claims he will lower Tom Burke'e 600-yard record of 1 minute 11 seconds aiicD" Charles Kilpatrick's 1.53 2-5 for the-, halt mile before he returns to Italy. The Ottawa Rowing having beaten all the best crews1 of" this country and Canada in senior four-oared shell rowing races., will di- rect their attention almiost next year to rowing in -eights, and hope to win the championship- Jinu1 Ten Eyck will again coach, tnerm-" Several football coaches are ed to the head gear that has come into general use in the last few years.
