EAVERS BUY THREE
ST. LOUIS PLAYERS
Second Baseman Vaughn and
Pitchers "Hoff and South
ern Added to Roster.
TEAM IS ABOUT COMPLETE
Legal Fuss May Arise in Vaughn
Case,- but McCredies Expect
3So Real Difficulty Records
of Xew Men Are Good.
BT KOSgOE FAWCETT.
With the purchase of three players
from the St. Louis Brown Sox yester
day. Portlands Pacific Coast League
club for 191 la practically complete.
The three acquisitions are:
Second Baseman Vaughn, St. Louis
Pitcher Hoff. St. Louis Americans.
Pitcher Southern, St. Louis Ameri
cans. . .
Some time ago Fielder Jones. St.
Louis manager, submitted or
players for the McCredies to collaborate
upon. Final decision was not made
until yesterday afternoon, when w. w.
McCredie telegraphed acceptance for
the foregoing trio.
Some sort of a legal fuss impends In
the Vaughn case. Vaughn jumped the
Buffalo club when he Joined the 6t
Louis Feds and President Barrows of
the International League, now Insists
that he be returned to Buffalo. Bar
rows telegraphed this demand to Judge
HcCredie. last Saturday.
"I don't think Barrows has a leg to
stand on." said Judge McCredie yester
day. -When baseball peace was de
clared all the Federal League players
of the St. Louis team were ordered
amalgamated with the St. Louis Ameri
cans. Fielder Jones has the right to
dispose of these players as best he
sees fit. .
"Portland lost three players in the
Federal League warfare, but I don't
notice any of them coming back. Nor
do we demand them."
Pitcher Hoff twirled for the
Rochester club in the International
League in 1913, 1914 and 1915. and was
bought by St. Louis last Fall after
winning 13 and losins 10 for Rochester,
Branch Rickey started him in four
eames at St. Louis and the recruit won
two and lost two.
Southern Is a Western leaguer, going
up from Wichita last Fall with the
not too absorbing record of 16 wins
and 17 defeats and a 3.15 run average
a game. He was flung into the breach
once by the Browns late in the Fall
and lost his only start
Walter McCredie inquired thoroughly
Into both youngsters, however, and he
thinks he haslanded a couple of valu
able slab virtuosos.
Infielder Vaughn Is a seasoned cam
paigner, and, best of all. can play any
of the three infield positions second
short or third. At Buffalo, in 1914,
" Vaughn held down the torrid sack,
batted .269 in 147 games, stole 35 bases
and sacrificed 34 times.
Last year Fielder Jones used Vaughn
at second base on his near pennant
winning St. Louis Federals.
Vaughn batted even stronger In the
third major organisation, finishing
with a .274 bat average. 14 stolen
bases and 43 sacrifices. He is an ex
cellent fielder, and according to Tom
Seaton. will surely hit .300 in the Pa
ctflo Coast League. Vaughn swings

BAUM GALLS COAST
Special Session to Be Held
February 1 at Instance of
Berry, Powers and Maier.
SALARY LIMIT MAY GO UP
Division of Sentiment May Result
In Decision by Baum, Although
Salt Lake Is Wavering and
May Vote for $5000.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 25. (Special.)
At the request of Directors Henry
Berry, Johnny Powers and Ed Maier,
representing the San Francisco. Los
Angeles and ' Vernon clubs. President
Allan T. Baum today called a special
meeting of the Pacific Coast League
for next Tuesday, February 1.
According to the league executive,
the club owners, in their telegram ask
ing for a special meeting, did not spe
cify Just what is the business that will
come up for consideration, but as three
directors are empowered under the con
stitution to call for a special meeting,
the wheels were set in motion for the
Salary Limit Chief Topic. .
Despite the reluctance of club owners
to disenss questions of league govern
ment, it is quite evident and for that
matter generally conceded that the
problem of salary limit will be the
chief topic of conversation.
Certain of the clubs particularly the
Tigers, of Vernon, and possibly the
Los Angeles team, as well are de
sirous of more freedom when it comes
to hiring talent for the coming season,
and they will undoubtedly seek to have
the limit if not increased over 1915,
at least restored to that figure, $5000.
There has been considerable gossip
from the Southland as to the advisa
bility of insisting that all around the
circuit the home teams play seven
games a week, which" would mean
seven games each in Portland and
Salt Lake. Other managers have in
sisted that Salt Lake and Portland
have bad the better of the going, with
fewer games to be played, and in cer
tain circles there will be a tendency
to force these outside clubs to piay
a double-header once a week, if not
two games on Sundays.
Fed Deals May Be Aired.
Possibly as well the club owners
will get together on the proposition of
furnishing league protection for play
ers who Jumped to the Federals from
this league and are now to be sold
elsewhere. Especially in the cases of
Jimmy Johnston and Joe Gedeon, who
signed Fed contracts but never donned
the livery of the independent organi
zation, it would seem that the Coast is
getting a little the worst of the deal
and that these men ought to . be re
turned to their respective clubs.
Gedeon, of course, would not come to
Salt Lake, but would revert to Wash
ington. The league would be the
gainer so far as Johnston is concerned.
Getting back to the main topic, it is
unquestionably true that the boosting
of the salary limit will be the one big
tight when the magnates come together
next Tuesday afternoon.
Despite the fact that it was Henry
Berry who proposed the resolution cut
ting the limit to $4500 per month at
the annual meeting of the Coasters last
Fall, it would appear from his Joining
hands with Powers and Maier in asking
for a special meeting that the San
Francisco owner may possible have
been won over to their arguments.
Bees May Be ea Fence.
McCredie, of Portland, Leavitt and
Cook, of Oakland, and Henry Berry, of
San Francisco, have been figured as
standing for the new salary limit
Ed Maier was unquestionably strong
for a change and the Salt Lakers have
seemingly been on the fence with a
tendency to sand for a boost
Johnny Powers has never seemed to
care much one way of the other, but
it is within the possibilities that Frank
Chance, desirous of making a good
showing on his debut in this league,
has advised Powers to ask for more
money per month per club.
McCredie and the Oaklanders will
doubtless cling to the old limit
Whether Berry will stand by his own
resolution or seek a revision remains
to be seen. It rather seems that Henry
is preparing to do a flop.
PLATERS' RIGHTS CONSIDERED
Ban Johnson Suggests Radical
Change in Organized Baseball.
. CHICAGO,' Jan. 25. President John
son, of the American League, who re
cently said he would advocate next Fall
a radical change in the governing of
organized baseball, was quoted today
as saying he would suggest that rep
resentation be given ballplayers on a
new body, which he hopes will take
the place of the National Commission.
The minor leagues may also elect a
member to the proposed board. Presi

Rivers and Mitchell light Draw.
CINCINNATI, O.. Jan. 25. Joe Rivers,
of Los Angeles, and Ritchie Mitchell, of
Milwaukee, fought 10 furlousrounds to
a newspaper draw here last night In
the early rounds Rivers forced mat

the infighting. Mitchell's hard straight
lefts evened up matter in the eighth
and ninth and gave him an edge. - In
the ninth Rivers slipped in a clinch
and injured his-left ankle, but rallied
desperately in the tenth, sending Mitch
