The moA important questions that

six-club circuit, compelling long lumps.

Angeles and San Fraaclaco would not
lose any money, on account of the open

natural patronage. With th northern

the big railroad Jump and the acut
weather all tend to militate agalnat
their treasuries. Something must be
done at this metlng to help out Port
land. Seattle and Tacoma. It true
that these teams complete the circuit,
making It possible for th California
teams to enjoy prosperity. yt In return
for this valuable help, what do th
northern club get out of th deal but
the friendship of the California mag

bills Last year Portlsnd lost 1,00

team and thla year l.000 war dropped
in the same effort. Luckily for the
Mod of the sport, men were found who
came to the front and put up money
so that Portlsnd would have baseball.
In this respect Judge McCreedle recently
purchased the Hortland club. Should
the same condition exist next season,
there to nothing mow certain than an
other deficit will faoe th owner In the
fall of 10. j
What can be done? Will the fane
be willing to pay S centa to see the

salary limit to a figure at which stars

scheme were carried out th salary

continuous baseball. This, however, can

On of th most Important questions,
too, that th league must settle, will
be the length of the playing season.
Bight months of baseball are entirely
too long. The fans get tired of ball
asmes after six months, and why not
pleas the fan by limiting th season
to six snd a half months. The division
of receipts, too. will come up for dis
cussion. The receipt of holiday games
and closing gamea of the season should
be SDllt. while more fairness would be
displayed If the tesms divided 60 and 40.
and not 70 and SO aa now prevailing.
Of course the salary limit will have to
be arranged In accordance with th
price of admission sdopted, and th
scheme of formation of clubs, either
six or sight.
Portland representatives at the an

snd Tacoma In demanding a fair hearing
-upon all points in dispute. They should
argue for a fair salary limit a six and
one half months' season, an honest
schedule snd a lust distribution of the
receipts. The other points can be regu
