t la new h4. revised amplitude of coun
tenance William J. Bryan beamed upon the
pouglas Covnty Democracy latt evening ot
the club'a nesdnusrtere on Fifteenth street,
when nichard It. Metcalfe unveiled largs
photograph of the sage of Lincoln, which he
presented to the" club with appropriate
rhofnrlral Illnmlnaainns. A camDalKO litho
graph of Mr. Bryan already hung on the
wall between similar presentment! of
George Washington and Adlat Stevenson,
while on the opposite wall Jefferson, Jack
son and Lincoln -were made the artistic, en
vironment of highly colored beer adver-
llaement. which occupied the eolgn of van
tage In the center. A hatchet bearing un
mistakable evidence of use reposed on
Ids, with one slightly disabled foot relng
on the patent beer bottle stopper, was
stuffed tiger, whose ferocity of appearance
doubtless was sufficiently explained by
badly dislocated tall. Artistic veracity on
the part of the taxidermist explained a deep
gash to the tiger' breast and broken leg.'
It had sot been expeoted that Mr. Met
calfe would make the presentation speech,
nd his appearance and address were both
- evidently an agreeable addition to the pro
gram, judging from his receptloa. It may
have been due to the lively applause which
followed the actual unveiling ot Mr. Bryan's
' handsome photograph, or to the eloquence of
Mr. Metcalfe's periods, or to the play ot
the shadows, but It was averred by some
of he members that the lines about Mr.
Bryan's month. a his lithographed present
ment deepened Into conoentrlo playfulness
and the eyes sparkled with twinkling
warmth. Mr. Metcalfe said aothlng about
the Declaration, of Iqdependence.
J. Q, 8wlf( sang "The Bell Buoy," the
first word' of the song, '"Forever deserted,

should be selected as clerks In Mr. Miller's

than the formulation' of arbitrary orders
by would-be dictators and' complacent obe

' ihg 'a severe tensity of expression. A big,
fat- spectator with veracious earnestness
whispered that he saw the stuffed tiger's

taken, for the tall Is disjointed and the
piece of telegraph wire which supports It Is
too stiff to respond to aroused emotions.

Denver Meeting Reveals League Magnatea
Working Well Together. .
WHITFIELD ANNOUNCES PLAYERS SIGNED

DENVER, March IS. (Special Telegram.)
The harmonious meeting ot the magnates
ot the Western league was brought to a
close today and the visiting base ball men
returned to their homes, where considera
ble work pievlous to the opening of the
season awalta them.
The league does not desire to fall Into
the error of being obliged to revise Its
schedule after publication. There will nec
essarily be a conflict of dates at Kansas
City and Milwaukee, but ths Western
league magnatea feel that Nichols and Duffy
will be able to hold their own In both
cities. Duffy and Hart are now scouring
the east for players and from the tele
grams received from them they ars meeting
with considerable success.
Mr. Packard would not say whether the
season would open up here or In the east.
However, It seems that good Judgment
would dictate having the season open up
west on account of the evenness ot ths
weather. President Whitfield announced
the following players as signed, none ot the
Peoria, Milwaukee or Dee Moines players
appearing In the list:
Omaha Catchers, Thomas, Hayes, Gond-
tng and Reed; pitchers, Owens, Brown, Rls
ley, Alloway, Gordon and Graham; Infield
ers, Calhoun, Stewart, Hlckey, Dolan and
Burg; outfielders, Carter, Genlns, Fleming
St. Joseph Catcher, Garvin; pitchers,
Maupln, Parvtn, McFadden and Llns; In
fielders, Brashear and Hall; outfielders,
Belden, Hartman, GUI and Walters.
Kansas City No catchers signed; pitch
ers, Welmer, Gibson and Kid Nichols; in-
fielders, Hlckey, Bbanon and Allen; outfield
Colorado Springs Catchers, Arthur, Baer-
wald and Wlnson; pitchers, McNeely, Jones,
Ream, Newmeyer and Gaaton; lnftelders,
Kverltt, Frank, Oranvtlle, Devereaux and
Holllngsworth: outfielders, Dennen, Barret
Denver Catchers, Wilson and McConnell;
pitchers, Byler, Schmidt, Hartsell, Water
bury. Frisk and probably Webster; Infield
ers. Davis, Delebanty, Radclllfe and Dun
don; outfielders, Jones, Preston, Honey
man and Pace. '
Hugh Duffy ot Milwaukee, Joe Quinn of
Des Moines and Billy Hart of Peoria are
on the warpath for players and from re
cent advices they will soon have a full
complement of men.
Manager McKibben of St. Joseph Is after
another good catcher and more Inflelders.
No representatives of the National league
or of the National Association of Minor
Base Ball Leaguea having been present, the
meeting ot the Western league has proved
to be less Important than was prophesied.
President James Whitfield speaks with con-
fldence concerning the outlook for the
season snd predicts that Milwaukee and
Peoria, ths new members, will strengthen
ths league. Mr. Whitfield said today that
Johnny Kllng would probably be connected
with one of the western teams, either as
manager or holder of an lntereet.
No objection has been raised to the action
ot President' Whitfield In endorsing the
playing rules accepted by the Buffalo con
ference. He informed the owners and
repreeentatlves ot the teams that ths foul
strike rule would be modified satisfactorily,
as it would be devoid of Its confusing fea
tures when.lt was finally approved by the
The committee on schedule,, of which

has prepared a draft ot schedule, but It Is
still undergoing revision snd will not be
made public until late In March or early
In April. It has been agreed to open the
playing season on Wednesday, April 23,
and closo September 22.
It was also agreed to Ignore the playing
dates of the American association In
preparation of the achedule.
