Sacramento, Nov. 15-James E. Shinn, third baseman for Sacramento and who next season will be with the Boston Americans, is a benedick. Shinn came up from his home at Healdsburg, said "hello" to the Sacramento friends, and then quietly stole over to Stockton, where he married Miss Ethel Buchenau, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Father John Power. That was November 1. and the secret was kept from the public until today.
