TAX OX BASEBALL PROPOSED
State Senator Would Put Profession
al Game Tnder Commission.
' " ALBANT. N. T Jan. II. A bill that
will cause much excitement In the
ranks of baseball men Is to be intro
duced In the New York State Legisla
ture by Senator James Frawley. one of
the Democratic Isadora and author of
the new law for tbe regulation of
boxing. It Is Senator Frawley's plan
to tax the gross receipts of baseball
clubs exceeding a certain limit, tbe
money thus collected to be turned over
to the playgrounds In the leading
cities and towns.
Tfc. a Kill n.ok. kl. will MmA IS ItJt ft t
as the tax and will affect directly the j
New York National League Club, the
New Tork American League Club and
the Brooklyn National League Club.
Fenator Frawley's Idea is to put pro
fessional baseball under the control of
the State Athletic Commission, which
Is managing the boxing game.
Tbe officials of the major league
cluba have never made public the
amount of their gross receipts, ex
penditures and profits. There Is no
doubt, bowever that the returns are
enormous. It has been said unofficially
that the profits of the New Tork Na
tional League Club exceed 300,000 in

PRACTICE MUCH NEEDED
COLUMBIA HAMPERED BY ITS
LACK EV BASKETBALL.
Despite University Team's Obvious
Lack of Preparedness Contest
Is Fast and Interesting.
Lack of practice told heavily on the
Columbia University basketball team
In the game with Jefferson yesterday
afternoon at tbe T. M. C A. Jefferson
won. 26 to 17. The game was. never
theless, fast and Interesting. Jefferson
excelled in ability to shoot baskets
from the field.
The winners had the upper hand
from the start, and at the end of the
first half the score stood 11 to J. The
course of the game was marked by a
great deal of fouling, most of It by
Jefferson, especially toward the last of
the game when the excitement got a
little the better of the players' caution.
The passing of tbe two teams was
about evenly matched and was up to
a good standard. Toward the latter
part or tbe fray Columbia started a
rally mostly due to the great number
of fouls made by the Jefferson team.
Eight of the 17 points of the losers
were made in the last Ave minutes of
play, due to Jefferson's fouls for the
Fitzgerald la te Fere.
Little Individual starring was brought
out by the game. Fitzgerald showed up
rather strong. He is one of the heav
iest men to appear on the local inter-
scholastlc floors this Winter. He shot
most of the free throws for the Colum
bia quintet, scoring almost all that he
had a chance to throw. 8c hulls, for
merly with the Mount Angel team, is
rather small, but ha proved a hard man
to handle. His forte Is speed. lie
played his forwsrd to good advantage.
Ktrkland also played a heady game for
A good deal of Jefferson s success
was due to the playing of Ernest Vos
per, who turned out again to take the
place of Eugene West, out with a frac
tured wrist. He played a last game
at forward, landing a number of bas
kets and free throws.
Murphy got most of the ringers, as
usual, making five. Although he plays
guard he managed to slip In a number
of tallies and still keep his own man
from landing too many. Anderson also
deserves special mention.
Celaasbla l aser Handicap.
Columbia always works under one
great handicap, that of a suitable floor
to practice on. Tbe stadium at tne
campus has only a sod floor, and when
the five gets on a slippery oaae it nnas
considerable difficulty In navigating.

Disappointed Ewlnf and
Portland Leader Still Differ.
San Diego, Cal., home of the Point
Loma wireles station, the first ostrich
farm on the Coast, the tent city, Al O.
Spalding and Katherlne Tlngley, may
be the scene of Spring training for the
Portland Coast League champion ball
club. Walter McCredie, manager of
the Beavers, returned home from the
league aession at Los Angeles with this
Manager Walt hasn't decided defi
nitely to move headquarters from San
ta Maria to the Coronado vicinity, but
he has already eliminated Elsinore
from the race, on account of the tor
ridtty, and It looks like a standoff be
tween San Diego and Santa Maria.
Jack Barry, who is wintering at Ocean
Park, a beach resort near the Angel
City, will go to San Diego within a
day or two to look over .the field care
fully and not till. then will Manager
McCredie make his decision.
McCredie Not Talkative.
Apparently no mystic Phoenix has
arisen from the ashes of the recent
league meeting, when the Spalding ball
was discarded for tbe Goldsmith, when
the magnates enjoyed a beefsteak
breakfast at the expense of Ed Meier,
and when the 1912 schedule was for
mally branded with the hot iron of ap
proval. At least Manager McCredie
brought none of the smoke back with
him, for. In the news line, be remind
ed one of a 12th carbon copy of a
Roosevelt or a Cal Ewlng.
"Had a fine time; didn't see Tommy
Sheehan; enjoyed a visit with Mr. and
Mrs. Barry and Jack is some busy man
signing tap players for Dugdale; am
satisfied with the schedule; not com
plaining about the umpires; believe we
did the right thing in adopting the
Goldsmith rubber-cored sphere and am
enthusiastic over the new numbering
of the players scheme."
This In brief about sums up tne
fruits of a week's Jaunt to California.
Mac added that the big obstacle in the
way of a choice of San Diego for
Spring training was ihe exorbitant de
mand made by the manager of the
Winter League club, who controls the
only available grounds.
Reports in Los Angeles are that

quite a crowd assembled to watch the

when the crowd adjourned.

Mac said tbst his talk with Cal
Kwlng at the league meeting and In
San Francisco had not altered his
views concerning the new Class AA
innovation. The two important
clauses in the agreement. It develops,
are the one whloh prohibit major
league clubs from owning more than
S3 players at one time and the clause
which provides that all Class AA
leagues must waive on a major league
player before he can be sent back to a
club in a lower league.
"The covering up of ballplayers snd
farming-out practice on the part of the
majors will now ne a tning oi tne
past," said Ewlng in a San Francisco
Interview, in which he argues against
the McCredies" viewpoint, "for with the
35 limit the majors will not have the
leeway to deal in hot-air trades and
they cannot send a promising young
ster back to their Class A. B, C or D
farms without our consent."

The license committee undoubtedly
will recommend tbe passsga of the
measure, which was presented by the
Realty Board by unanimous vote of that
organisation. It was sent to the City
Attorney yesterday, that it may be put
Into complete legal form. It provides
for a license fee of $5 a year for pro
prietors and $1 a quarter for each
salesman employed In the realty busi
ness, and the act designates any one
who sells a piece of property not his
own to be a dealer. A fine of not to
exceed $200 is provided for violation.
V. Vincent Jones also spoke for the
Realty Board in favor of the measure.
He said that the business needs atten

"If the city will pass this measure,
said Mr. Jones, "the Board's committee
on licenses will be on the Job to place
before the Council committee at vari

propose not to run out or to starve out
the 'little fellow,' but to protect the
general public against frauds. It this
measure Is passed. It will go a long
way toward accomplishing this.

proposed ordinance to amend the elec-
tric-slgn ordinance. It also postponed
indefinitely measures designed to in
crease the license for fish peddlers and
another cutting In half the licenses of
