ST. JOSEPH CLUB
WILL BE MOVED TO
OWNER HANL0N SAYS MISSOURI
CITY WON'T SUPPORT A BALL
TEAM: RUMORED THAT LIN
COLN GETS FRANCHISE..
St. Joseph. March 25. St. Joseph
will not have a Western league base
ball club this year unless some
other team than Edward J. Hanlon's
is located here.
Hanlon was in town today in
conference with his attorney, G. L,
Zwick, and said that arrangements
had been virtually completed, for the
transfer of his team. He declined
to .ay where the team is going, but
the inference was that Lincoln had
The Hanoln players have been
ordered to assemble in St. Joseph
April S for spring training at League
Park and will remain here uniil the
opening of the season. Hanlon said
that the park in the city to which
be will remove, will not be ready
until early in May.
Cozy Dolan. manager of the team
is now in Excelsior Springs, and
will remain there until next week
when he will come to St. Joseph
Charley Hunter, business manager
of thq club, will come here soon to
look after the training details.
It is possible that several exhibi
tion games will be played bere be
lore the team leaves, although dates
are not certain. One major league
team canceled two games with the
Hanlon aggregation, because they
considered the situation in St. Jos
eph beyond recovery.
Hanlon has alreauy signed up
most of his players, he said today
Those whose nanus are attached to
Bluejacket. Muller,' Brubaker
Watson. Kirkham. Bachant, Mc
Laughlin. Luschen. Braunigan, Kir
by. Rose and several new men
whose names Hanlon refused to di
vulge at present.
While Lincoln men will have
money interested in the team, Han
lon will retain t he greater part of
the stock and will continue to be
the main guy. He said this morn
ing regarding the St. Joseph con
dition: "There has been no attempt made
here to display any willingness to
support a team this season, and I
am unwilling to finance an adver
tising and civic proposition for St.
Joseph only. I will not keep the
club here, and couldn't if I wanted
to now. I believe base ball will
come back in St. Joseph, but it will
be a long time coming ' now. St.
Joseph has established a reputation
for non-support and unwillingness
o help either Holland or myself
when help was needed, and a big
guarantee will be demanded before
anybody else will take any chance
