It 1h expected that the UHHociittion

tho intention being to play ball four
montliR. There 1h to bo a meeting in
Dcb MoincH Febrnary 'JO, when tho
nchodulo will bo arranged and all other
preliminaries attended to.
Matters in Lincoln have been delayed
somewhat owing to tho absence of Mr.
F. W. Little, who has been in New
York. Applications have been received
front considerably over 100 base ball
players for positions on tho team, and it
is plainly evident that eleven very good
men can bo secured for tho 9800 limit.
Thoro is a slight dltTorcnco of opinion as
to tho meaning of tho limit clauso
adopted by tho association. Davo
Kowo, tho president of tho association,
maintains that under tho rules of tho
association, no club can pay ntoro than
800 for tho players and manager. Some
of tho influential fans of this city bo
liovo that tho club ought to bo allowed
to pay a manager extra, holding that
tho 9800 limit is only tor tho players. It
is tho intontion, as is doubtless well
known, to got a player-manager eomo
'good ball player who isablo to play with
tho club and manage it at the same
time. This kind of men conic some
what high and it is argued that it is
no more titan right for tho club to have
tho privilogo of paying tho ntunagcr a
sulury for managing tho club, outside-of
tho $800 limit. Lincoln has maintained
all along that 9800 is too small. Tom
Ilickoy went to Chicago in favor of a
91000 limit, but ho found himself in a
This difllculty will bo bridged, how
ever, und it is probable that a manager
will bo selected bofnro another week

of hiring individual players until a man
ager is found, it being thought prefer

Tho fact thut Davti Kowo was elected
president of tho western association does
not cuuso ii liy special enthusiasm in this
city, whoro Davo RoVo mid his noquliur
tactics uro' well und unfavorably known.
Thoro wero somo queer things in con-
ection with, tho Lincoln club two years

mystory, although throto aro persons
diiythiuk Kowo assisted futo in tho

iso ball jockey. Ho is looked upon its
d doitl of a trickstor, and it would
been ti good, thing if somo othor
had been selected as president of
the association. Hut Kowo with his
great and irreproachable record as tt
first class hoodoo can hardly juggle tho
western association into a tint failure.
Tho organization seotus to bo bound to
bo it success. Kowo will probably not
have very much to do with it.
Tho directors of tho Hock Island -Molinc
base ball association have held a
meeting and started to raise 9i!.o00 by
subscription. It is oxiweted that this
amount will be easily secured by Febru
ary 20. Much Interest has been mani
fested in the now western association
and it is stilted Mutt tho Rock Island

Harry Sugo may bo selected as manager.
