GIVES NORTHERN CITIES CHANCE
"Moved. That this league renew its
three-year agreement with the under
standing that the Recreation Park
Association at San Francisco close
four weeks In Summer, thus giving
the Northern teams more series at
The foregoing motion was carried
at the meeting of the Pacific Coast
Baseball League last night.
Eugene Bert, unless some unforseen
accident should prevent his recovery, will
be president of the Pacific Coast league
for the next three years. This fact was
announced last night at the meeting of
the Pacific Coast League and was one
of the many important bits of business
transacted during the gathering. In addi
tion to being elected to serve three years.
resolutions, thanking President Bert, for
his past services were adopted, ana
Judge "W. W. McCrecdie, vice-president
of the league, was Instructed to write him
an official notification of the action taken
by the magnates and also expressing a
hope of his speedy and complete recovery.
The election of President Bert was out
of the regular order, and it was done to
show the league's appreciation of Presl
dent Bert's services to the league. A
report, showing that his financial man
agement of the affairs of the league was
In perfect order, was read. President
" Bert, frantic from a protracted Illness,
attempted to commit suicide. At that
time it was hinted that the finances of
the league were in a tangle, but inspec
tion of the books proves the report to be
false. Few men on the Coast have de
voted more time to promoting the game
than has Mr. Bert, and his re-election ' to
the office which he filled with credit to
himself and the league, was no more than
Los Angeles Is Out.
It was when It came to passing out the
franchises that the big thing happened
for James Morley, of Los Angeles. Mor
ley was notified of the meeting, but he
ignored the notice, and although Captain
Dillon gave It out that he would be on
hand, he was not, and now Los Angeles
is without a franchise. Franchises were
granted to Portland, Seattle. Tacoma.
Oakland and San Francisco, and the Los
Angeles franchise was left open. As soon
as it became noised about that Morley
had not applied for Los Angeles, there
was a rush of several Portland business
men, who put in applications for the
town. This Is not the first time that Mor
ley has ignored the league meetings, and
if the magnates remain In the humor they
were in last night. Money's baseball
ownership will be a thing of the past.
It Is not known whether the franchise
will be granted to Northern people, or
whether the league magnates will wait
and see If some Los Angeles people won't
make a bid Xor It
Among the many things which the meet
ing passed upon was the number of
players that the major leagues are al
lowed to draft. "Word was received from
Secretary Powers, stating that the two
major organizations could draft but one
man from each league, and that they
must pay in cash $1500. The agreement
under which the league has been running
was renewed for another three years, so
all the talk that has been indulged in
about the breaking up of the league is
stilled for another three years.
Spokane Wants to Get In.
Spokane was represented by Messrs.
"Williams and Green. They renewed their
application to have Spokane taken into
the league, but nothing was done at this
meeting, but in all probability it will
again be taken up at the annual meeting,
which will be held in San Francisco after
the season closes.
Patrons of the grandstand will be pleas
ed to hear that the price beginning with
next Saturday will be reduced to 50 cents
from 60 cents. The price of general ad
mission will remain the same. The um
pire question was taken up and thorough
ly discussed, and from now on only sick
ness and delayed trains will go as an
excuse for umpires failing to report and
; umpire games. Any failure on their part
to report for other than sickness and
delayed trains will cost them $52. They
( will al60 be instructed to inforce the rule
of compelling players to run on and off
'the field. Manager and captain will be
'instructed to enforce this rule, and a
failure to do so will bring down "the wrath
of the president of the league, who will
have the power to impose a fine In-case
this rule is not lived up to. v-
Tacoma and Oakland.
Most of the time of the meeting was
-taken up In the discussion of the absence
of attendance at Tacoma and Oakland.
This was too knotty a problem to settle
Yesterday, so it was allowed to go over
until the big meeting. The moguls are
agreed that something must be done, and
just as a sample of how they feel about
the matter is shown by the resolution
whioh was passed granting to Cal Bwlng.
owner of the Oakland franchise, the
right to sell or transfer his franchise to
any city in California that he might see
lit. Five cities have been flirting with
Ewing, for the Oakland franchise. They
are Sacramento, Bakersfleld, San Jose,
Stockton and Fresno. Bakersfleld has
made Ewing a very flattering offer. It
has posted a guaranty of $300 and will
agree that if the franchise is brought to
that city that it will allow the league to
select any city in the league that it con
siders has the best attendance, and that
if at the end of the season the visiting
teams have not made as much money
while playing at Bakersfleld, that Bakers
fleld will meet the deficiency. This means
that Oakland, like Sacramento, has seen
the last of a home baseball team, for
Ewing is determined to sell out.
The meeting was presided over by Judge
"W. "W. McCredle, vice-president of the
league. There were present at the meet
ing Henry Harris, Cal Ewing, J. P. Ag
new, Dave Evans, Mique Fisher, Secre
tary J. H. Anderson and B. C. Ely.

League magnates, who had adjourned tho
afternoon session, just to see a ball game.
Los Angeles did not have to play ball to
win. It was like playing an off-day. Cor
bett started in as if he was In his old
time form, but he weakened towards the
end, and the visitors took all sorts of lib
erties with the Giants, who suddenly have
become Infants. It is no use to go into
details of the game. You faithfuls, who
put up dally, just throw out the game, tor
