The Providence Journal, authority in that city for base-ball, says the salary lists of the Providence team for the coming season will be nearly $1,000 less than last year, and will include twelve players, two in excess of last year, when the salaries reached upward of $15,000. The official list of salaries is as follows: Ward, $1,700; Gross, $1,500; Start, $1,600; Farrell, $1,400; McClellan, $1,100; Denny, $900; Houck, $700; Hines, $1,400; Gilligan, $875; Matthews, $1,100; Baker, $900. Total, $13,175. The twelfth man has not been secured, but his salary will probably not exceed $900, or thereabouts.
