TO BOOST THE CITY
Ardent Supporters Willing to Help
Make the Game Pop
Whatever may be the result of the
conference of Tri-State owners at
Lancaster late tills afternoon, or the
action of the Tri-State representa
tives at the meeting, Tuesday, Har
risburg supporters waul league baae
ball, and it is probable that a mass
meeting will be ualled in the near
future fer the purpose ef boosting
the came and ascertaining how much
additional cash can be rained to help
lhe local bankers.
One ardent baseball supporter, Ifld
ward G. Kauch, suggested a plan by
which local backers might be en
couraged to make n further Invest*
itient on the guarantee that in the
event of a poor season they would
loße nothing. Explaining his plan,
Rlr, Itauch said!
"There is not much encourage
ment for any person to put money in
a project with no guarantee that they
will get It back, Home men are loth
to invest their cash in a baseball en
terprise, others do not have the
money, but aro willing to contribute
to the support of the game. I. for
one, will subscribe to a fund to be
plaoed in uny bank In Harrisburg
and to be used to make up any losses
incurred In- the efforts to give Har
risburg good baseball.
Itiglit Buslines Volley
O. Ross Boas, another enthusiastic
supporter of the national tfani*.
thought the plan sußuested by Mr.
Ratio h a good one, and said he also
is willing to do his share in keeping
baseball in Hurrisburß, He is also
of the opinion expressed by Manager
Connie Mack during his noonday talk
several months ago that if the right
businoss poliey was followed sufficient
stock might he sold to put a strong
corporation hack of baseball. Said
"Basel*! II is one of the best adver
tisements a city can have and I would
certainly be disappointed If 'there'
were no Tri-State game. Harrisburg |
cannot afford to be without league |
baseball and 1 hope that the proposed I
reorganization of the Trl-State is
made a certainty and that Harrisburg
as well as other towns will get into !
the game in business style."
William Bates, wholesale produce
and fruit dealer, a staunch supporter
of the game, expressed a hope that
more activity should be shown in the
efforts to keep baseball moving on |
a higher standard. Others who want
to see the game continued are Wil
liam H. Bennethum. Sr., manager for
Dives, Pomeroy &- Stewart; George B.
Tripp, vice-president of the Harris
burg Light & Power Co.; Jess Wind
sor. of Kuss and Windsor; Frank
Seiss, John Wohlforth, John Morgan
thaler, Fred B. Aldinger, Robert Ma
gee. J. Rowe Fletcher. J. William
Rodenhaver, Bruce Mengle and many
others. On the result of the confer
ence in Lancaster to-day will depend j
a public meeting in the Interest of j
league baseball on a higher standard.

Graham Is Popular,
Has Strong Ability;
Trenton in Favor
The eloction of George M. Graham,
sporting editor of the Philadelphia
North American, to the presidency of
the Tri-State is looked upon as the
one solution to the success of the
Tri-State. The Trenton Gazette says:
"That President Charles F. Carpen
ter will meet with serious opposition
in his efforts to be re-elected presi
dent of the Tri-State League is shown
by the fact that George M. Graham,
one of the most noted sporting writers
in the country, may be asked to accept
the presidential chair. In many cities
on the circuit Graham is being
groomed for the job and there is
hardly a doubt but that if Graham
wants the position lie can have it.
"Graham would make an able and
intelligent president. He has splendid
executive ability and has the interest
of the league at heart."
