1IH National association has
raised to a distinct class A.
the Eastern and Pacific coast
leagues and the American asso
ciation with rights to draft as
majors upon the other minor
That makes five organizations
to prey upon these minors. It la wrong,
jit Is an Imposition and will hurt base
ball In the end. The other minor leagues
had enough to contend with In the draft
rule as It was, let alone making lis lot
harder. - But this Is the outcome of the
American association's failure to get into
major league class on the one hand and
the raciflo Coast's Inability to push
through its demand for an annullmcnt of
the draft rule. The Pacific Coast fellows
re thus placed in a very bad light. They
undone In themselves what they con
Vsntned in others. That is, when the
raft operated so heavily against them
fend they could not use it against any
tiiers. they declared it to be wrong from
fttrinclple, Jjut now that they can exerclHe
U upon other leagues it becomes right.
There is no principle in it for them. It
la absurd, to begin with, for the kind of
ball that has been played on the Pacific
i oaet to be dignified with higher classi
I flcatlon, anyway. The Western! eague and
: other minors might well have agreed to
I this separate classification, though, had
' they not been made to suffer additional
' Injustice and hardship by It. Most fatr
, Blinded men, no matter whether they live
n a major or minor league circuit, will
, admit that the draft rule works injury to
many a minor league team, if not to all,
Mid. should either, be abolished -and- let
the players be purchased outright or be
materially revised. Instead, however,
here is a move to expand It and thus to
Increase the onus it lays upon-the minors. '
What Concessions, could have been made
to those minor ..that were, duped .into
voting for th change?
The limitation to be placed on the sal
aries of minor teams will bo accepted,
doubtless, as a glvo-and-take proposition.
There is reason, of course, in the principle
of salary limitation, but a sense of fair
ness, both to the team owner and the
player, should govern whatever action Is
'taken. Neither the pla.sr or, the em
ployer, should be too severely restricted
or hampered. That woul.I impose injus
tice upon, not only them, but the patrons
of the game as well, and they have to be
reckoned with at all times. The financial
records in most minor league this last
year fully Justify that point. In the
Western and other leagues patrons got
the notion that they were in places being
brushed aside with most any old thing
and they resented the treatment by with-
i holding their patronage, which sent many
a team into the discard financially, and
i pinched many another. Let the solous of
base ball, like other solons, feel the power
: of public favor or disfavor and they may
become more responsive to the lights of
I the public. It will never quite do for
them to grow arrogant amid seasons, for
their arrogance will linger in the minds of
the fans until spring.
The National commission's decision and
order to have the world's championship
series begin next year on October 7 mean
that the National league mutt shorten
its season. There has been ample projf
of the wisdom of this move. Take the
Giants-Athletic sei-ies this year the
weather was so unfavorable that the
games had to be suspended for nearly a
week. Player take chances and the
game loses edge under such climatic con
ditions. It is a good thing the commls-
; alon has acted. But it Is a better thing
for the commission to have planted itself
1 against ticket scalping, as it seems to
have done. This Is far mora Important
than the other. The commission could
not afford longer to temporize about this.
Brother Dave, owing to a partial corn
t ruu shortage, has had difficulty In get
ting a full supply of cubs for the winter,
but he announces that he has enough on
hand to last until Christmas, and by that
time Gondlug expects a carload in from
Iowa, where he has. cultivated the
acquaintance of certain farmers. Pa Bill
had enough agriculturists on his pay roll
during the last year, Cal Valentine thinks,
to land Brother Dave all the cobs lie will
need tor the next six years.
The report that 11 aj Chase is to be
supplanted as manager of the Highland

Is a gilt-edged star on first base. Harry
Wolverton, the old veteran third base
man, now managing Oakland in the Pa
cific. Coast league, is said to be slated
for Hal's Job.
Both Cubs and Cardinals are said to be
angling for Nap Kucker, the Brooklyn
aouthpaw who did more than any other
five men to rob the Cubs of the pennant
last season. It is almost Inconceivable
that Ebbettt would think of letting his
tar pitcher go.

'There, will be two grand foot ball
duels at Fort Omaha thla afternoon when
the Shamrocks meet the Superiors and tho
Belmonts tangle with the Defenders.
The latter named will play the first
game. The Shamrock-Superior gridiron
battle should prove an exceedingly excit
ing fray taking Into consideration the
bitter rivalry of long standing that exists
between the two squads. Considerable
Importance Is snatched to this affair as
It will be for the championship of the
three cities. The Monmouth Parks and
Belmonts are the only contenders that
had a look in with the aforementioned
squads and the Superiors sidetracked the
Monmouth Parks, while the Shamrocks
defeated the Belmonts. The South
Omaha foot ball devotees say It is ail
Iced but the shouting, while the Superior
adherents are equally sanguine. Neither
team has been whipped by a Nebraska
aggregation ana as rar as the season J

have a trifle the best of the deal. First

will easily overcome this deficiency with
