Season to Be Qood,
Tom Fairweather, president of the !
Molnea base ball club, wko la here with
rhta team. Is highly pleased with, the con
dition of base ball affairs In Dea Molnea
and thinks his team will be among the
top ones before many daya have passed.
"After last year's conditions at Das
Moines, which were the worst In the his
tory of base ball there, the fans areturn
Ing out to the games wonderfully well,"
aald Mr. Fairweather. "It la the Inten
tion of Frank lsbell and myself to give
Des Molnra the beat wa can In base ball.'
for I know our endeavora will be appre
ciated. Dea Molnea la ode ef the best
base ball towns In the Western league
and la supporting the present' team In
good sbape. Of course, the boys have not
struck their stride yet, but it Is still early
In the season and when they get, going
the other teams In the league will Opel
their eyes and atare.
"There la no douht but that this ice
eon will be a prosperous one for tht
Western league. The race will be a hot
one and there will be no runaway by tar'
one team, aa there waa last season. Den
ver has not near the lean It had laet
year. The loss bf "Casey" Ifagernutn
and "Buck" O'Brien Is felt very keenly
by the OrtMllra. SI. Joseph, Wichita and
Topeka all have good teams and Bill
Rourke has a star aggregation and will
show up well when they get to working
well. With all thee teams In the race
there cannot help-hut be a bright fatura
before the Western league. The fans all
like to see a close race and not a run
away. And they are going to get It."
