From Loss by Itcason of Any

About Men for Xcw Tram.
Since the adoption of the "walrer
rule" clause la the agreement between
the cluba of the Pacific Coast League,
considerable dlscuselon has been In
dulged In by the fans over the meaning-
of waiving on playera. The big
majority of fans do not understand
Juat what tha rule accomplishes, and
frequently the fannlnga beea are amus
ing on thla account.
Soma fans have been heard to argue
lhat waiving means the claiming of
ha player by the other clubs, and the
announcement that Perla Casey had
been waived on by the other Pacific
league clubs, caused the Impression to
prevail In some quarters that the aec
cvnd baseman would play with either
Vernon or Sacramento aa the result of
the placing In effect of the league's
new rule. .
Thla Idea Is erroneous. Caeey was
waived on by the I"aelftc Coast League
rlubs. and as a result of thla action on
their part Walter McCredla la now at
liberty to dfpose ot this player In any
manner he may deem advisable, or may
retain Mm on the Pacific Coast League
tlub. The asking of walvars on a
alayer don not mean that the club
o requesting Is bound to dispose of
the players waived on. Neither doea
the refusal to waive on a player com
pel the club asking walvere to dlepose
of the player to the club refusing to
comply with the request.
Waiver Rule Safeguard.
The waiver rule adopted by the Pa-
clflo Coast League waa enacted to safe
guard the other clubownera from pos
sible loss of the services of a valuable
player aligned with another club In the
same circuit, and who might otherwise
be disposed of to some organisation
outside of the Pacific Coast League.
The same rule Is In effect in the major
leagues, and by reason of a mutual
asreement no big leacue player can be
disposed of by the club holding his con
tract without all of the other clubs
pausing up claim to said player.
Take the case of Casey, for Instance.
M.Credle asked for walvera on this
player and each of the other five clubs
comprising the Pacific Coast League
acceded to McCredle's request. Their
action now leaves MeOredie free to de
pose of Casey In any manner he sees
fit. lie can delegate Casey to the
Northwestern League, or he. can retain
him on the Pacific Coast League club,
but in the event that he pursues the
latter course he cannot dispose of
Casey after the start of the coming
baseball season without again request
ing walvera.
Xorthuotern May Get Owj.
Present Indications point to the rale
gallon of Casey to the Northwestern
League, though McCredla has made no
definite announcement to that effect.
The. manager la probably feeling out
the sentiment of the Una on thla score,
or he may have other plans for the dls.
position of thla clever player. In
waiving on Casey the other Pacific
Coast Leaerue magnates probably felt
that they had better allow McCredie
Ms requeat aa they might possibly de
slre to put through some deals of their
own before Spring, and the Portland
manager, having two clubs to recruit,
would be on the lookout for all re
quests of the kind.
Manaicer McCredie announces that he
win not take aa many playera into tha
Spring training quarters as last year,
and says that be enpecte to select his
1M1 tram from among IS and possibly
Zo players, tie thinks he will round out
quite aa efficient a team from thla
mailer number of players.
Last Spring Manager McCredie had
:? players on hand at Santa Maria at
one time, and when he got to San Fran
cisco to open the season with the Seals
he had II players under salary. When
the season ended McCredie atlil bad n
players on the payroll, but some of
thrm were youngsters he picked up
late in the season for the purpose of
holding them for neat season.

Weavers In the Spring are Sheehan.

'eertalnilrs in the outer path, while
Kn.lgers and Irving Gourh will have to
fight It out f-r the other position. It
Is likely, however, that both will be
retained, for Rodgers Is said to be a

competent to play Infield posltlona In

In New Kngland and made such a fine

ateber during the coming season- War

yet asked waiver on thla piayer.
The loss of Vean Gregg and Kugene
Krapp will likely hnrt the Beavers
most, for these two twlrlers will be
hard to replace. McCredie haa been
assured that he haa picked a live one
in Frank Archer, a southpaw, but he
wtll have to go aome if he equal or
even approaches the work of Gregg.

THE GASOLHTE-PEOPEIiLXD COUPE, despite its old handi
cap of disproportionate price, has won for itself a definite
place in city motoring.
BUT THE PRICE BARRIER had to le overcome before the
conpe could bo considered an essential of every complete
private garage.
complete in every detail no extras is as capable a vehicle
as the most fastidious motorist could desire, at a price un
heard of in the former annals of enclosed-vehicle manufac
ture. BUILT BY THE E-M-F COMPANY in its eight immense plants
and in characteristic quantities -which make the unprece
dented price possible, no detail of coupe completeness has
been overlooked. s

plated hardware, electric head, side, tail and interior lamps,
controlled by switch on dash, tufted English broadcloth
upholstery and graceful exterior lines, the Flanders "20"
coupe is a vehicle of which any owner may well be proud.
Flanders coupe will pay big dividends to the busy
physician on the rounds of his practice, the society woman

who makes use of his car on short journeys about the town

Eloquence of Elders.
PARIS. Dec.' 10. Special.) Two
hundred new members In the Chamber of
Pepntles are up in arms against the sea
of eloquence among their elder. Their
chief reason seems to be that they have
not yet got in a word edgeways since
the dav they were returned and not one
of them has yet succeeded In firing o3
his maiden speech.
One of thrm. therefore, proposed a
time limit for speeches, such as exist
in some Parliaments of the old world. He
Is generous enough, however, six time
more so. Indeed, than the framers ol
rules at some labor congresses. He pro
poses to allow, not 10, but a maximum
of 60 minutes to every speaker each
This seems a fairly wide margin. Still,
It might prove an Irksome restraint up
on some members, like M- Jaures, for in
stance. Some one has calculated that he
holds the record for pacific eloquence
in the new Parliament. The speeches
made by htm from June last to the day
before yesterday reach a total of 534
columns of the official reports, or more
than 60.000 words.
