Thla became Known yestcrdaj from baseball nnd has inndn litis! new Manager b'rlel of tho Oilers u proposition, offering to pitch providing tho salary specified In hla con tract is tnlsed a certain amount b'rii'l and itlclimond had their con fereucs two daya ago. l'rlcl said last night he had offered to incut Itlclimond half way although he did not mention the amount In dispute. Ho declared. however, that ho had gono as far us he. would, and that it waa up to Jtichmond. Tho fact that Itlclimond has re lentcd from Ills decision not to pitch Is good newH for Tulsa baseball fnm and tho general Impression is that he and tho club will come to terms. Jtlchmoml, who took a bride shortly after the close ot the last season, has made Tulsa hla homo and hag purchased an Interest In the wliolurale jewelry business conduct ed by Handera Hones. His original reason lor giving ui) baseball waa that Hones and ho believed his time could not bo spared from tho Jewelry business. They now bcltovo, however, that It can bo arranged for him to bo away during tho summer by another man being engaged to take hla place. Tho Itlchmoud development was by far the most Important bit of news or gossip around tho Oiler camp Tuesday. Tho routino ot training went tlio even tenor of its way. broken only hy tho arrival of a couplo of younstcra Krauk Skclly, a semi-pro southpaw pitcher from Pennsylvania, and I ranK J'rnnxcn-hoff, an outfielder in the Southwestern leaguo last year. rrankonhoff was ono of tho most promising young gardeners In tlio .Southwestern last summer until he had the hard luck to break his leg. Thla may prove a more serious handicap than he thought even at tho time, nn he still teems to favor tlio Injured membor. Joo Having, brother of tho redoubtable John, la one outfield candidate who appeara to havo something In him. Joe'a actions at the bat are pleasing. He slams the ball out like a regular. Maybe It runs in the Hevirig family to clout the hurschlde on the note. As Slanager I:Ilvelt ramorked, however, you can't really tell much about a youngster's hitting until you see him facing pitching where they're) putting something on thu ball. Jack la not forming any set opinions about any of his youwi-slors. llo prefers to wait at leant until next week, when tho exhibition season will be on. George StcGlnnls, Oiler shortstop last year and as promising a young Infelder as the league boasts, U duu from the roast today. Everybody will bo glad to see "I.ittlo Mao" out there, It it is only In practice. Tatty Ilaumann, thlrdbaieman purchased from Tolodo, who also was exacted Wednesday, probably won't ha on hand until the next day. He has Inlormed tho club that he had Important business in Indianapolis on March 21, and if he spent yesterday In tho Hooslcr metropolis ho couldn't very well bo hero before Thursday.
