Will History Repeat Itself?
That Is the question. Will Newark
prove another "Baltimore" to the In
ternational League? President Gtlmore,
of the Federal League, announces posi
tively that he will transfer the Kansas
City franchise to Newark. That means

Internationals. In Baltimore last sea
son the Feds whipped Jack Punn's Ori
oles to a finish. In fact, they ran them
out of the city, Jack had to transfer
his club, after selling the cream of the
t.eam. to Richmond, Va, All of which
revives the. question t "Will the Feds
ever enter West Philadelphia as they
plan to do some day?"
