WHAT DOES ANSON WANT ?
"Pop's" Appearance in New York Wor
rying Big League Magnates.
New York , Nov. 12. Adrian C. An-
son , the former great hitter and lend'
er of the Chicago Champions in the
olden days , is in town on a mysterious
mission. He has had several confer
ences with men of wealth , and It is understood -
derstood that he is feeling the public
pulse on the question of a new league
to be a rival of the National and the
"Cap" Anson always has been a
stalwart National leaguer and ho stood
by that organization in the troublesome
some days of the brotherhood. It h
a little strange , therefore , to learr
that the old wnrhorse is Interested ii :
the new league. If they are paying
the captain a salary to find out hov ,
the land lies more power to him. He
s deserving of anything that may be
thrown his way and you can bet youi
last dollar that "Pop" will not do any
thing under cover.
John T. Brush , owner of the Giants
and Frank Favrell , owner of the High
landers , are not worried over the pos
slblllty of a third league'getting Intc
New York. Both major leagues an
well fortified against any newcome
that tries to cut into their territory
Ever since the war between the Na
tionnl and American leagues they havi
been accumulating a reserve fund li
case of future trouble. The Nationn
League hns nearly a million dollar
with which to fight off Invaders. Ii
the old days the clubs had little mot !
ey and some oi them were on the loj
hur side of the ledger. Now nil o
the clubs have money and they hav
prepared for war in times of peace
The American League Is also fortlfle
and they will Join the National if I
comes to a war with a third league.
Mr. Brush and Mr. Farrell have n
fear of a third team coining In No' '
York , because they do not believe thn
Fletcher or his associates can rals
enough money to get started. It woul
require at least ono million dollars t
establish a new baseball plant in No1
York. Frank Fnrroll knows this be
tor than anybody. Ho has Just mad
arrangements for a new plant at Tw
Hundred and Twenty-fifth street an
Broadway , and the work on that wl
cost him nearly one-half million do
It Is generally believed that a thlt
league would bo a financial Impose
blllty without a team in Now Yorl
It Is in New York and Chicago tin
most of the teams get their monc
while on the load. The new leagi
would have no trouble In getting Into
Plttsburg and Cincinnati , but whore
there are two trams already they will
have trouble In getting groundn.
