INCOME TAX HITS POWERS
New York, 2.—The high-sal
aried players of the major leagues
will be hard hit by the income tax.
Every regular member of the Giants
will probably be liable for the tax.
Unmarried men are taxable if their
net income is more than $3,000, and
married men are taxable if their net
income is over $4,000. Counting reg
ular salary, world's series receipts,

j HERE IT IS BRIEFLY: \
\ Two years ago the new manager of the Men's Clothing department !
! took hold. He wanted to reduce stock and start afresh (all new man- '
| agers do).. So he marked down the prices on all Suits and Overcoats 1
1 and held a sale. And it was a sale—a big sale. Men who knew the stock I
were among the first here for the bargain plums. Other men heard of L
I the sale—heard of the man who "Blue-Penciled the Stock" and came fi
! too. The result was extraordinary, the stock was reduced, the new P
manager started his department with new goods. He repeats'the "Blue- [
| Penciling" each year at about this time. And the best thing about the S
! I sale is the new goods—fresh high grade clothing—suits and overcoats I
that were bought for regular stock. [
! Here are the Blue Pencil Sale prices: P
1 $7.90 to $9,90 Suits and Overcoats, $5.50 f
$9.90 to $11.50 Suits and Overcoats, $7.50 [

Governor to Attend
the Allentown Rally
Allentown, Pa., Feb. 2.—Upon re
quest of no less a lover of the dia
mond than Governor Tetier, the new
head of the National I-eague, the in
itial meeting of the directors and fans
to arrange for the financing of the Al
lentown Tri-State club has been post
poned from February 4 to February
Things in Allentown look rosy,
especially since there has been a
definite engagement of John Fran
cis Castle as manager. Few men
have ever created such enthusiasm
In so short a time. Castle has the
distinction of having been launched
In baseball by Connie Mack, and he
has also played with the Phillies.
The big new board of directors
heading the Allentown team this
season has asked him not only to as
semble the old team under the rules,
but to engage some promising new
material he has his eyes on
From present indications the
pitching staff will be the best Allen
town ever had, and the infield and
outfield will be as good as a minor
club can secure.

Lengthy Conference Is Held at
Pittsburgh by National
Special to The Telegraph
Pittsburgh, Feb. 2.—A bitter fight
to the finish will be waged by the
major leagues and the Federal invad
This was the decision reached here
after a conference that lasted far into
Sunday morning between the Xational
Commission and managers and own
ers from both major leagues. After
the conference the following state
ment was given out:
"The decision of the Xational Com
mission means that the club owners
of the Xational and American Leagues
and every other league belonging to
organized baseb£?ll are going to fight
; the Federal League through every
court in the land, and if necessary,
spend immense sums of money to pre-1
vent 'jumpers' from playing with any j
but organized baseball teams. The
reserve clause is a protection for the i
club owners, and no player who is
under contract in organized baseball ■
will be permitted to play with the |
outlaws unless the courts decide they
can. If necessary, appeals from court
decisions will be taken clear through .
to the United States Supreme Court.
The Xational Commission is not only
fighting the Federal League, tooth and ,
claw, but will also fight every player,
who has deserted or may desert the
team with which he legally is under j
contract. It may mean a long, expen- |
slve and tiresome legal war, but the j
commission is prepared ,to go the
"The players who have jumped will j
be given an opportunity to renew al- i
legiance to the clubs which claim I
them, if the courts decide that they
cannot play with the Federals. Those i
players who voluntarily return to their
teams before the legal war is begun
will be protected in the courts by or- :
"The organization of baseball clubs i
has used every peaceful means to
bring about a more harmonious con
dition in baseball. It has repeatedly
warned the Federal League and its
clubs that it would tolerate no inter- •
ference, either with players under con- '
tract directly or those held by the j
reserve clause. That warning appar
ently has been disregarded and th*
outlaws must suffer the consequences,
unless the courts decide in their fa

Manager Cocki.l Here Today
Conferred With Local Officials
Favors Albany Contract, But Has Doubts as to His Suc
cess Without Cash to Get Players
Unless the Harrisburg backers are
able to produce stronger persuasive
arguments than the men back of the
Albany team of the New York State
League, George Cockill will this sea
son cast his lot with Albany.
This was the situation prior to the
conference between Manager Cockill
and the Harrisburg officials late this
afternoon. Manager Cockill was in
Harrisburg Saturday and returned to
Lewisburg in the evening without hav
ing reached any agreement. He thinks
favorably of the Albany offer, but
there is one point in taking a position
as manager that Mr. Cockill always
considers and that is his chances to
land a pennant-winning team.
Present indications are that "Red"
Calhoun will again lead the Bingham
ton team to another championship.
TRIM THE GARNETS
Harrisburg tossers walked away
from the Garnets, of Philadelphia, in
a lively game at the Armory Saturday
night, winning by a score of 58 to 30.
McCord was the star with nine field
goals and fourteen foul shots to his
credit. Dienes and Haire played well
for the Garnets. The line-up and

There will be other teams in the race
long enough to make it interesting,
but the general opinion prevails that
Binghamton has a good backer and is
a sure winner.
This, along with the fact that Al
buny may not have the cash for
strengthening a team when necessary
may bring a decision ffom Manager
Cockill to remain in Harrisburg.
A guarantee from the Albany back
ers to give Manager Cockill full charge
and plenty of cash will likely mean
that Harrisburg must look around for
another manager, now that it is be
lieved Cockill will go to Albany. There
are alreday many applications for his
job. Among other applicants are Lou
Ritter, John Brackenridge. "Steamer"
Flanagan, Johnny Sundlieim, Bert

Special to The Telegraph
Philadelphia, Feb. 2. — Samuel B.
("Buck") Weaver, famous as a base
ball pitcher thirty years ago, died sud
denly here to-day. He was 59 years
Weaver began his baseball career in
1872 and terrific speed was his great
asset. He played with the organization
now the Philadelphia National league
teani one year and was with Mil
waukee for two vears. In 18R1 and
1882 he WHS with the Philadelphia

stated during 1 884 and played with
the famous Athletics until 1887, when
he retired. Weaver then became a
Philadelphia policeman and was
placed on the pension list after serv
ing twenty-one years.
OPTION CLAUSE OPINION
John G. Johnson, one of Philadel
phia's leading attorneys, has looked
over the o'ption clause in the Ameri
can League which Benjamin F. Shibe
, of the Athletics recently submitted to
hint. Mr. Johnson in his opinion says
that the fact that the player agrees
tor a consideration to sell an option
on his services to the club owner for
a following season makes the con
tract binding In law and that the Fed
eral as well as the State courts will
so decree. Fortified with the opinio"
of Atorney General John C. Bell, of
Pennsylvania, and former President
William H. Taft that, the option clause
wil stand the acid test, organized base
ball men soon will announce that :i
vigorous fight in the courts will In
made to restrain players from appear
lng in Federal League uniforms.
