How he shut up the Wa-  verly hotel and held tbe whole settlement of Shoal Bay in terror for  three whole-days can be briefly told.  Last '.Sunday evening seven-ol  eight men were sitting in .lhe barroom of thc Waverly hotel when hi  stalked Demar, armed with a Winchester- rifle "and  a revolver.  "Come     up   and   drink;' everybody  ���������come,"  he  said,  flourish ing  a revolver   /n  the face of thc ama/cd group,  sitting there.  The men halted  for a moment, but  as there was mischief in Demar's eye  they decided to accept and  all walked up to the bar and drank.  During  a moment's      diversion   Ed.   Berber,  one of  the men,   made a move     lo-  towards the door, but -Demar followed him and clubbed  him over     thc  head  with  the  bntt of his  revolver  and  then  brought him back-at    thc  point of     bis gun.    Meanwhile, Dunbar,   the   bai tender,   was  going      on  with  his   work.    Demar engaged  him  in     conversation   for   a second,   and  then as  he turned   to   arrange some  glasses  on  the shelf,   brutally    shot  him through thc  backv.   The bartender fell  down  behind   the bar       mid  those  present, rushed   for  tbe  door,  while Demar discharged his  revolvoi  in .every  direction, smashing  mirrors  windows   and   furn'tlure.    One  bullet  passed  : through  the wall and stnicl.  the head  of Hie bed- in' which .  Mr.  and Mrs.  .JohnWard .were, lying,   her  rified by  the terrific noise.  Demar then started for  the   second  storey where   Mrs.   McDonald,      the  ,Wife of the proprietor; ami her two  children occupied a bed room. Mrs-  McDonald 'said-she heard the'man  stumble-and fall at the bottom of  the stairs, and, taking her two children by the hand, sho pluckily slipped past him and but into the n*>,ht  She,so'ight', the shelter of a neighbor-'  ing  house   and  informed   the ��������� people  xious and " sleepless time',"and th-e-  guardians of families were on the  watch for Denial' with" their rides.in  thei r  hands. ,      ,  On Tuesday-evening' De-mar return-,  od  to Shoal  Bay  and  offered  to give  himself   up   to- Postmaster   Forrest,.  but as he was still armed  with the  i i fie, this offer was thought''to'be'" a  piece  of  sarcasm  and  no one     .* attempted   to   arrest him. , lie walked  aroi iii I   all day, ,*aiid. on ---Wednesday,  when   the" Cassia'r' c-am'e  iii ��������� he -was  standing  on   the dock., Mr.- W.   ,',F.

Mr. Brycc was-armed     with  nothing but  an electric  torch  sticjv,  which   he   thought   might  pass  off as  a gun,  or, if  recognized,  would       be  useful to tap his man on lhe head in  case  he p'i'o\ed   rebellious.

In  organized   baseball there  are  seldom  more than .three clubs   in any of the  1111 .nor leagues that make r  money or  break even on the season. It is praei  lically  an   impossibility   for     more  than six clubs in any league to get  hack flic money Invested.  "It     may sound strange to some  persons,  but I know that the Chica-  | go .'Natiional league'club has put back  every cent  that it ever made.  '���������It costs approximately $700 a day  to open the grounds.    It costs-     us  that much a day every flay for over  live mont/'S.   Counting spring training trips, money, Ior the purchase of  playcis and     such things,  we must  make    at     tbe "gate  approximately i  % 120,10    before there is a penny,even'  for     improvement's of  tbe  grounds,  and that means that we must play  lo     nearly  500,000  penile at home  and abroad beiore our - money * comes  back.   That means an average      of  nearly   1,000 a day for  150 games.

Tho  situation   is  so precarious  and the  margin so  slight that  each  league   makes   a salary   limit       and  agrees  solemnly  that  no  club  shall  pay more than a stated amoiint    to  any     player.   Then   tbe     owners go  home and violate that agreement in  half a do*/en  cases  in hopes of beating the other  teams  and making up  the additional cost,.
