TKc" Bhlvely" taHc about forming an
outlaw league sound like the lonesome
err of a loser. It comes with very poor
grace from tha doctor, too, for he la a
amber of the National Board, that august
body whow decisions are Irrevocable law
aa regards tha purely Internal mattera of
th minor leagues. If he cannot abide by
the decisions -of the tribunal of which he
la member, what will he expect of other?
Tut, tut. doctor; thla exhfbttlon la childish.
It's hard on the Western aoaoolatlon to
have to rive up Topcka. but It would be
Jit aa hard on Topcka hsve to atay
fnrever In a Class D league when there la
an opening in a Class A for the town.
Such chances do not come every day In
basa hall, and the Shlvely people ought
tn be glad to let Topeka better Ita con
dition. The milk In the cocoanut la that
tha doctor had In his mind the object of
planting a team at Kanena City, Kan., In
exchange for Topeka. Thla. of course,
could not be allowed, hut It does not ap
peaaa Dr. Shlvely. Aa a matter for aober
consideration, hi talk rf establishing an
outlaw league with teams In both Kansas
Cities and at Topeka doesn't amount to
anything more than the natural chagrin
of a man who has Joat. If Prealdent (VKHI
h paid the money to Secretary Farrell,
aa he aays he haa. the deal la complete,
ad Topeka will be a member of the West
ern league circuit, no mutter what Shlvely

Who Will Own St. Joseph.
From Chicago cornea th announcement
that Mike Donlln haa got the Bt. Joseph
franchise In the Western loague and will
put In and manage the team there. Thla
would be" welcome news If It could be de
pended on, but .on the surface it beara
the earmarks pf being the output of the
some brand of bonrV that sent out the
story lately about Michael being separated
from several thousand dollars' worth of
hot rocks and other Jupk while walking
down one of Chicago' crowded thorouah
far4. Donlln Is under reserve to the New
York Nationals nnd couldn't play In St.
Joe, unless Brnsh convent, which la net
likely to happen na Mike la needed by the
Otanta. He might manage the team, but
vn that would be In face of a fight with
tha New York magnate. Still, John Oaniell
suoceoded In breaking awny from the New
York Americans In much the same wny.
anft If Mike la really In earnest, be will
be welcomed out here.- ll'-m presence on
the bench alone would add a certnln de
rrea of Itrten tt to -proceed1?, even If It
didn't add dignity. Some deflnrie announce
ment will have to be made very soon about
Bt. Joe, for the daya are gliding swiftly .by
and the putting together of a team for
that town cannot be left entirely to ohahca

"Cooley and Crow are to handle the To

Cooley was to handle Louisville If, we had
fot taken Topeka Into the Weatern. The

glv out at St. Joseph, so the newspaper
people of that town will have eomethlng to
writ about. I am writing around to se

ufralo by the board of arbitration of the
National association, through Its repre
sentative, Secretary Fa,rrelt, . that he was
to ' relinquish the territory, of Topeka to
tha Westorn league on payment of tt.000,
and I Immediately mailed same to him.
Bhlvely now cornea out In an Interview
from Kansa City, In which he states that
h will play outlaw ball. Thla comes in
poor taata from a man who la a member
of the National Board. Ha know that
tha National Commission and National
Board have don their best to give the
Weatern association a chance to gracefully
surrender the Topeka territory to the West
ern league, and ha now see fit to defy
all th organised Interest In base ball. I

Four of theae men are in the .too class,

the games are certain to be "real contests

house movers have moved and set the large

built up to the stand' to do away with the
muddy places occasioned by heavy rain
and this Is one of the troubles with which
the association will not have to ' contend
this year. Work on the club house Is ' In

RirgllAN L.IOM AFRAID. OK OOTCH
Hackensckntldt Admit He Doe Not
.Want the Match.
The announcement that Frank Ootch and
Hackensehmldt had been signed for a
championship wrestling majch. to take
place In Kansas City, for a BurHe of tlO.OCO
la one of the most Important that has been
In connection with wrestling for many
It Will be remembered that when th big
Russian was In thla country two yearsiago
he met Tom Jenkins twice. At tha time
of the first match Jenkins was holding the
championship title, it having been his turn
to defeat Ootch. Frank wanted a try at
the Russian, and next time he and Jen
kin met h took away the honor, but (till
the tjlg foreigner refused to meet him, and
took on Jenkins in New York for a second
match. He won both of the contests.
(k)toh got busy hurling challenges, and
offered to meet Hack In the ring or on the
mat for any sum that the foreigner wanted
to name, but atlll there was no match.
Th cry was started that Hackensehmldt
was afraid of the clevrr American, und
from what Hackensehmldt ha told friends
in lOngland this ha proven to ba trua.
On of Ootch' strongest holds when on
th mat Is tha l-g hold, and once the Iowa
boy gets the hold he Is after it Is pretty
near all off with his opponent.
Look over th list of big matches which
Ootch has won in the last couple of years
and you will And that 75 ger cent of hla
lulls have been secured wifti some sort of
a leg hold.
Farmer Burns can Justly be called the
most sclentitio wrestler that haa ever ap
peared on a mat In this country, says a
Chicago paper He knows no less than tto
holda. any one of which la good for a fall
with the average wrestler,, and he, also,
ktiowa a bar to' every one of thexe holda.
And yet Ootch probably knows more about
leir holds than Huras, hla teacher.
Outch has made a careful study of these
holds, and they are exeremely painful to
Hackensehmldt la stronger in th shoul
ders than In the legs, and he haa paid
more attention to tha upper holds than the
lower onea. and. moreover, there Is-a great
question aa to whether or not ha Is ss fast
aa the American.
It was because of Qotch's well knomn
ability In the way of leg holda that the
Russian waa afraid to tackle him. It Is
only when public opinion la becoming so
strong In Its demands that the two men
should meet that tb Russian has consented
to the match.
To a friend In London last year Hack
ensehmldt admitted that ha wsa afraid of
Golrh- and stated that he waa not well
enough posted In the leg hold to meet him
at that time, but that he waa training
steadily to be' able to esnet Ootch on an
equal footing. The Russian was also dub
ious aa .to hla speed as agalnet Ootch.
Time win alone tell ' ust whst founda
tion Hackensehmldt had for these fear.
When the two men meet If the match does
not fall through the ability of the two
massive wrestlers will be tested to- the
limit .and It will be a case of best man win.

TOPEKA. Kan., March l-(Sporlal.-The
base ball situation In Topeka la eomewhat
a matter of doubt, owing to the conflicting
condition surrounding the Topeka fran
chise. However, It la the general opinion
of ths local management that th fran
chise of the Topeka team belongs to the
Western learue and Manager Cooley will
pick his team with that end In view.
Dick Cooley, who Is the president snd
manager of the local team, returned this
morning from a two weeks' sojourn at Hot
Springs, where h has been getting himself
In shape for the coming season. Cooley,
while In Kansaa City yeaterday, on hla
way back home, called upon aeveral prom
inent base ball men. smong whom where
Oeorg Tebeau and President D. M. Shlvely
of tha Western association. Cooley says that
Shlvely's logic failed to convince him that
ths Topeka team still belonged to th
Western association, and that ha la going
right ahead to get a Weatern league team.
For a starter for hla Weatern league
team, Cooley ha moat of th best men of
his pennant winners of last season. Of this
bunch he haa a catcher, two pitchers, two
Inflelderg and four outfielder, who are
nearly all of Weatern league caliber.
Cooley himself playa first base, which pos
ition he played for many year In the
National and American leagues.
Jack Henry haa done the bulk of the
catching for the last two seasons, and la
considered by Cooley to be fast enough tor
the Western league. Last season at the
opening of the schedule Henry had to sub
mit to an operation. After he recovered
he went right Into the game with th re
sult that hla playing was not up to his
usual standard. He I now In fine shape
and expects to do good work this com
Good Start for Pitchers.
In the pitching deportment Topeka has
Mclnnes and Halla. Halts was the second
pitcher In the league last season. He has
the best control of any pitcher who ever
worked in th Western association. Mc
lnnes was the mainstay of the team laat
season, and If winning the pennant could
be attributed to any one player "Mac"
should have the credit.
In the Infield, beside Cooley, thor 1
Walter Bole, who Joined the White "ox
near the cloae of the season. He Is a
pitcher, but 1 a very fast Inftelder as well.
He will, In all probability, be used at third
or short, probably short. In the outfield
there are Pennell, who has Just signed his
contract; Hurlburt, Davla and Abbott. All
of them are good men and It would be a
hard task to select the three beat onea.
All four men are above .f70 hitters.
There are a number of new men who have
been signed to try out, but not very much
Weatern league ball la expected of them.
8ome of the men are! ' Lanfles, catcher;
Landreth, outfielder; McBrlde. inflelder;
Neal, Babb, Richards and Thompson, pitch
ers. None- of these men have aa yet played
In any higher than Class C leagues.
Cole. Olson and Ragan of last year's team
will likely be traded for faater players..
Msnager Cooley ha aeveral good men on
the atrlng. Negotiations have been pending;
for several days for two- pitcher and a
catcher of known ablilt' besides an In
flelder, whom Cooley sayl will play rlnga
around any other player tp. tha league.

The prospect of th Holly for a strong
team are aald to be brighter than ever.
With but one exception they will start out
with last season' Une-up and with a con
fidence Inspired by last season's work. Last
season at the beginning the Hollys were an
experiment. Manager Bell, with but three
old player aa a nucleus, built around these
a team of kids that lived up to hla expec
tations. As to the agea of the players the
Hollys were by far th youngeat of
Omaha' representative teama. For thla
reason they were considered a Joke by sev
eral of the old-time teams until they got
together on th diamond, when the kids
showed an aggressive and never give up a
game. Th terrific hitting of the entire
Holly team, together with the base
running of Neno, McAndrews, Bunnell and
Mechan was alwsys good for a nice bunch
of scores, while th defence wss well taken

of Bunnell. The record of th team was

Kid Jenstn and Tommy Campbell are
matched for a go next Friday night before
th Osthoff Athletic club. So greet Is the
Interest In this contest that th promoter
are considering the advisability of securing
a larger hall. Jensen broke his arm be.
fore Christmas, but that member Is said to
be fully recovered. This I a contest of
more than ordinary Interest, because Jen
sen waa a prime favorite before he broke
his srm, hut since that time Campbell has
been whipping all comers at his weight,
th match Is most logical one.
Clarence English challenged th winner of
the Osthoff hall bout Friday night and at
the same time sent word that he would not
accept the challenge of Ed Courtney un
less the agreement was accompanied by a
oide bet. English Is now In Chicago
and seems quite anxious to arrange a
match In Omaha.
Since tho election of officers a week or
two ago new life has taken hold of the
Omaha Rod and Oun club, with the result
that the membership Is atendlly forging

626 members at present. Already plans are
being formulated for the formal opening ef

probably during the latter part of May, It
being the Intention to make this the largest

DENVER, March . At a meeting of the
executive committee of the Western Bowl
ing congress, now holding Its second annual
tournament here, a resolution was Intro
duced to appoint a committee to confer
with like committees from the American
and National congresa with a view to divid
ing up the territory. The Western lays
claim to all the territory west of the Mis
souri river, although the Amertcsn officials,
It Is claimed, have been busy In Omaha,
Kansas City, Chicago and St. Ixiuls In at
tempting to hold Its clubs In line.
The sentiment prevails among the adhsr
enta of the Western Bowling congress that
In order to strengthen Itself In its chosen
territory the Western should hold Its next
tournament either in Omaha or Kansas
City, for by so doing it would draw teama
from all th Missouri rlvar towns.
The game of the two-men teams today
wss wnrt by Anderson and Talamantee of
Bait Iake, score 1,2. Six teams contested.
In the Individuals the highest score wn
made by Jewell of Denver, 6t6. Wtlaon of

In the five-men team event all Colorado

The five-men team event tonight wss won
by the Kenmore' of Denver, 2,f83. The
Ogden team, the only out of atate con
testant In this event scored 2,229.
Omaha haa representatives at ths Denver
meeting and they are pulling for thla city.
I,ocal bowlers will be gratified to land the
next meet for Omaha. Bowling In this olty
Is at Ita xenlth, no city In the west having
a greater Interest In the game. If the big
meeting comes here bowlers promise the
best of entertainment. Omaha Is a more
popular place than Kansas City for the

reason was he waa carrvlng the full limit

Kruse has been at Calhoun for three day

EARLY PRACTICE FOR FOOT BAM.
Harry Vp Yost Will Have Ills Men
Ont In April.
DETROIT, Mich.. March .-One of the
biggest surprises In oMIege athletic circle
thla year has be-n sprung on the under
graduates of Michigan by Coach Tost In
the announcemrnt tnnt spring practice for
the foot ball team will be taken up about
the middle of April. This step was really
forced upon "Hurry l'p," as many of his
last year's men will be Ineligible this fall
and he wished to have as much time as
possible to get his new material Into shape,
whether or not Michigan stays In the
conference there will be a hard season be
fore the Wolverines, for the game with
Pennsylvania will be no easy task, and If
Michigan stick to the Big Nine there Is
a strong chance for a game with Chicago.
Yost proposes to keep the men at punting,
handling the ball and formation work this
spring, for the defeat of his team by the
Quakers last fall aroused him. and he In
tends to let no chance for victory slip by
this year. He will have of the veteran
squad Captain Magoffin, Bishop and Kum
ney of the back field: I-oell, Davidson,
Clement, Newton, Hammond and Patrick
of the line, and what vacancies may be left
next fall. If any of these men leave col
lege, may be filled with aeveral excellent
players who were Ineligible last year, hut
who will have free entrance to the foot
ball quartera now.
