THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEEi MARCH 3, 1907.' J) S5C i! f:' i.' 1 SPORTING GOSSIP Of "WEEK To hely'i Talk AWt Cut!- Leeu . Doesn't Bear Folks, LOUD ASSERTIONS FROM A HARD LOStR r Topeka flare Ba Wnttn To a ft (VNcli H-.s Dew What Ha Kara la Maklaa; thc DmI. -Listens rood. , 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 say or dvs. 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 What President O'Xell tarn.. Ia answer to a Query from The Bee Prealdent CNell telegraph from Chicago aa follows: "Cooley and Crow are to handle the To peka, club.. They are the present owner. Cooley was to handle Louisville If, we had fot taken Topeka Into the Weatern. The . owner of Bt. Joseph franchise I want to glv out at St. Joseph, so the newspaper people of that town will have eomethlng to writ about. I am writing around to se ra , exhibition date for that club and so player. Dr. Shlvely waa notified In 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 amy doing my bast to put the, Weatern leajrua in a position eoond to none In base ball, and, regardless of win or lose. I know that I am making every, effort toward that end. . " N.

He 1 better satisfied With his chances than he has been for a number of years. The team he expect to putt, on th field look mighty good to him and to tha thoroughbred fan a well. Oua Thompson's contract came through all right, and that means the big pitcher will ba on the dot. Hla work ta aure to be a feature of the season. With Sanders. Dodg? and. McNeeley, and, maybe Hall, the pitch ing staff la good at th vary beginning. Met will be given an opportunity, al though he is the least promising of tha sextet under contract. Qondlng.

Welch In, aalddle and Balden In right is the way the field will Una up. and It mean the hardest hitting crowd Omaha haa ever had. Four of theae men are in the .too class, and ths others are .160 or better, so that It will be a case of hustl from the first for tha other fellows. It is a good fielding team, too. and all that la needed la for the early development of the Inside work, and the games are certain to be "real contests Tha other team have strengthened greatly luring the winter, and the Western circuit will aee better ball during thi coming sum mer than It haa since th good old days of 1W8. when It was aura enough a Class a league. JSe Couatry Clab. Tha crowded condition of ths outdoor clubs of Omaha will be relieved this sum mer If present plans for a new country club carry.

The directors may well be proud of the results of their efforts In trying to glv Orrtaha the finest gymna sium possible, for the entire country would have tn be searched to find a gymnasium the equal of that In Omaha. Director Pentland will have hla hands full with the numerous classes of members which are being formed for spring work.

Base hall 1 not the only sport which will soon open out wth the early birds of spring, for Coach Yost of Michigan has called on the foot ball squad to assem bly April 1 for spring; training. Ho is practically forced to make thla move" be cause of the Ineligibility of so many of his old men, which makes It necessary to round some of the youngsters Into shape for th gruellinK work of th grid this fall. Whether or not Michigan stay In th conference, there will be a hard season before the Wolverines, for the game with Pennsylvania will be no easy, task, and If Michigan sticks to the Big Nine there Is a strong chance for a game with Chi cago. Yost proposes to keep the men -at punting, handling the ball and formation work this spring, for the defeat of tile team by the Quakers last fall aroused hl:n, and he Intends to let no chance for victory Blip by this year. He will have of the veteran' squad Cap tn I n Magoffin, Bishop and Rumney of the backneld; Iell, Davidson, Clement, New ton, Hnmmond and Patrick of the line, and what vacancies may be left next fall. If nny nf these men leave college, may be filled with eeveral excellent players, who were Ineligible last yeai, but who will have free entrance to the foot ball quarters now. Diets Athletle Plans. Work of remodeling the Dletx Athletic association ground at Thirtieth and Spauld Ing la progressing at a rapid rate. The house movers have moved and set the large grand stand, thus assuring a more comfor table position to watch the games. The bleacher have been moved over to the east j aide of the grounds. Twenty losds of cln- ders have been spread around the n trance, to , the ground ' and clnof walks 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 progress and will be pushed as fast aa pos sible and It Is expected the locker rooms i and showers will be In readiness for the early practice of the ball teams. 1 At a base ball meeting held at he club rooms Aionaay mgni 10 arrange a system of running the teams for the coming sea son, Fred J. Evans was elected to fill' th position of head coach. With a squad of I twenty-five -ball players the association I I assured of two faster team than last year. Th first team will have white suit ' trimmed In blue and the second team blue suits trimmed In- white. The ttnnls court will be remodeled aa soon a possible, the fence on the end having been moved out to make the courts regulation. Th association has Increased Its mem bershlp from 72 to $9 and haa nearly enough applications on file to complete the full quota of membership. 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 months. 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 the opponent. 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.

ALREADY HAS NUCLEUS OF A GOCD TEAM Maes Oat for Addltloaal Player aod Expeete ta Cosae ta with m Toaan Wklek Caa Hold Its Owo. 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 ing season. 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. ' A few of the members 'of the team who have been hibernating in topeka thla whi ter are practicing dally, the preliminary schedule opens March ta, with the Wash ington Americans. The Denver team will hold Ita spring practice in Topeka,. but np game will be played between the two .team If Topeka plays in tha Western league. r Cooley this afternoon :wlred to Secretary Farrell for a definite statement aa to To peka' standing, but has not received a reply, however. He seems, to hv some lnlde Information that Topeka- ta In tha Western league and aaye.that they will have a good team. To him tne outlook for the coming season look very bright. - TOPEKA. Kan., March .-D. O. Cooley, manager and part owner of the Topeka base ball, club, returned to- thla dlty from Hot Springs, .Ark..' today. Cooley stated that he waa engaged In. securing playera for a Western league team and that hla club was not In that organisation, regard less of the action of th Western associa tion club owners at the Kansas City meet ing. AMATEUR TEAMS LINING UP lias Hall oa Mlaor Dtamoads la Omaha Shows Row Mte This Year. . Th amateur diamonds ar being pat In ahape, aa well aa the professional. Omaha baa a number of faat, unusually fast, ama teur and semi-professional teams, tnd the Indications are the coming season will even surpass the ' laat cn in Interest among these clubs. They are engaged In aligning their forces' for tb season's work. More amateur parks are being opened year by year. Stors this Mason promises to be a popular place. .' R. O. Ogden, manager of th Walter O. Clark' ball team, left Omaha Saturday on a trip through th state and will visit a number of good old baae ball town where he haa played ball. He expects to schedule a number of good gamea for his team this season. 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 ear of by a good Infield and the pitching of Bunnell. The record of th team was on tl. five gamea lost and seventeen vic tories, which gives a per cent of .T. Ths Ramblers are Jubilant over th pros pect for th coming season and say they think they have an aggregation of th beat amateur player In Omaha. Manager Marsh la busily engaged in booking games with all ths local team and is also anx ious ta hoar from out-of-town managers. The Ramblers' record for laat year is wsll known and th boy say they will excel! that record this year. Th laat dance of th season to be given by th Ramhtors will bo held April t at tho Ancient Order of United Workmen temple, South Omaha. Challenges should ba sddrassed to L. C. Marsh, 10K, North Twenty-third street. South Omaha, or telephone 1W0. Members of th team are: W. Collins, right field; R. Swift, center field; T. Collins, left field; R. Corrlgan. shortstop; E. Llsmond. third base; E. O'Nell, second base; L. Marsh, first base; H. Williams, catcher; J. Cava naugh, pitcher; J. rowers, pitcher; W. Ronan, pitcher; T. Regan. 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 ahead, there being In th neighborhood ot 626 members at present. Already plans are being formulated for the formal opening ef the summer season, which will be he?d probably during the latter part of May, It being the Intention to make this the largest and grandest fiesta that hss ever been held on any lake In this part of the country. The varloua Improvements around the club grounds are progressing steadily and It Is hoped that everything will b finished In plenty of season.

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.

As BUI Kruse of 1824 St. Mary's avenue walked up Fa mam street he waa the most generally observed man on the street. The reason was he waa carrvlng the full limit the law allows of mallard ducks. These fifty beauties made a splendid showing ahd were also all that a man would want to carry for any distance. Kruse has been shooting but a few. years and shoots simply for sport and recreation, nnd as the law does not permit of the sale of birds be was busy giving them away. Kruse has been at Calhoun for three day and during that time shot seventy-three birds, mostly mallards. He shot these on the Missouri river east of Calhoun and under circumstances which would stop many a. hardy hunter. A gorge had broken in the Missouri above that point and larevi 'cakes of tc were coming down, but these did not deter the hardy hunter from rowing his boat In and out between the huge cakes, which threatened at any time to crush his boat. He said the flight waa greatest Friday, when millions wer Jour neying north. WITH THE BOWLERS. Standing of team In the Omaha Bowling le&Kue t the end . of the twenty-second week; Games. '!tyon. Loet.
