get together. So. draft -the .plans., for, h
approachuig' bain ball Season. All the
magnates will appear on the scene of
action, which promises to bo a consid
erable scene before ill! tho debris la re

circuit. Thus tho "peaceful argument."
Sam for Knch Gnine.
Tho first Item which will arouse tho
wrath of several of the monarchs Is the
$123 flat guarantee suggested by the
board of directors for .each game. Al
though It would be a benefit to some ot
tho club owners It will bo tho rovers for
others. Denver may vote In favor, but
It Is certain that 'Breese, Jones, Hanlon"
and Catlln will cut loose with long, and
vociferous howls ot protest. Tho afore
mentioned gents are proprietors of. fran
chises in tho smaller cities and they will
fight a long time before they will agree
to cough up. the" cherished coffers about
five days, out .of se.vetj. As it will take
affirmative votes by six of the mags, to
shoot the suggestion over the plate it
Jan bo seen Just , how much' chance there
Is of such a thing happening.. But It Is
certain that a. scrap will ta..e place be
fore It Is Irrevocably squelched.
Next comes the $3,000 guarantee to fin
ish the season. A. majority vote" only is
necessary to pass that bylaw and It
will probably pass. All clubs except the
Kansas clubs will, probably accede that
the season guarantee Is a good thing,
so It should pass. But the Kansas vil
lages aro going to protest and therein
lies: another argument or perhaps a con
tinuation of the first. Kansas- will, be
defeated though and If .Wichita Is forced
to abandon he circuit, before, the season

Tha board. of directors also suggested;
a schedule of ICS days. Another mooted
question. Rourke, Holland, and Isbell
figured that the additional expense wbuld
only bo sahirley for eleven days and
traveling expenses for seven days. With,
the salary expense at the limit and hotel
bills the highest, the- additional expenso
would not exceed 'nlm or t.i.700, whllo In
those eleven days would be two Satur
days and two Sundays, which would
