ST. M5CI8, Mo., March . (Special.)
The seventh annual tournament of the
American Howling congress, which will al
ways be remembered for the unprecedented
warm weather which .existed all through,
. la now a matter of history, having come to
. an end In this city last Wednesday when
the final games were rolled In the minor
events. Three cities are represented In the
list of new champions. Marshall Levey of
Indianapolis and R- F. Marak of St. Paul
tied for the Individual championship with
tii pins, the Furniture Cltys of Grand
Rapids won the team championship with a
tctal of 1775, while TX O. Rdchter and E.
' H Blgley of Louisville are the new tltle-
holders In the doubles with 1.1M. Official
figures In all events were not obtainable.
, but It Is supposed Harry Kills of Grand
Rsplds Is the winner of first prise for high
averages for the nine games.
A feature of the tournament that stood
cut prominently above every other was the
low scores. Never before In the history of
the American Bowling congress have the
general scores been so small, the winning
counts In both the minor events being the
lowest on record while the Furniture Cltys'
count of 1,775 has been beaten In every
tournament with the exception of the first
vent in Chicago In 1901 and the fourth In
. Cleveland In 1904 when It was so cold the
bowlers had to carry oil stoves In on the
alleys to warm their hands on while rolling
In the five-men event.
Secretary D. J. Sweeney has been the
redeeming feature of the tournament. This
untlrabla Irishman, who seemingly was able
to go along without any sleep, lived up to
his promise of getting tne bowlers off In
two days' time although the schedule was
always somewhat late. This was caused
by the schedule not allowing enough time
for the minor events, the facilities for get
ting the bowlers off and on the alleys
being entirely Inadequate. It la certain that
In future tournaments mora time will be
allowed each squad in these events even
If It Is necessary to start earlier In the
Pla the Cause of Uw Scores.
Many opinion have been expressed con
cerning the reasons for the low scores, but
most of the competent critics think the pins
had more to do with it than the sectional
alleys or the temperature Itself. In all
former tournaments air-dried pins have
been used, while those In use at this tourn
ament were kiln-dried and put on the mar
ket a few months after being made. The
warm weather also affected them, and they
were certainly hard to knock down. Time
and again a pin or two would stick on per
foct hits, while lucky strikes or getaways
were fow and far between. The secttonal
alley also came In for their share of criti
cism, and It seems likely that future tourn
aments will use continuous alleys and thor
oughly alr-drled pins.
Left-handed bowlers seemed to have a
hade the' beat of it so far as the alleys
were concerned. The drives ran over so
fast that right-handers had a hard time
keeping on the right side of the headpln
with any degree of accuracy, while balls
delivered from th opposite side of the al
ley seemed to fall Into the crotch naturally.
The fact that tha alleys were fast was
.- never more thoroughly demonstrated than
when "Pop" Brill, one of the steadiest
bowler In the country, made only one
atiike on the right aide of the pin In his
five-men series with the Mlneralltes. A
feature wa the large number of compara
tively mediocre bowlers who landed high
up In the piire lists. Especially was this
fact In the five-men event, where most
of the creek teams failed to do anything of
Poor Accommodations Provided.
Facilities for taking care of the bowlers
In the tournament building were extremely
limited on account of the lack of space, and
what few comforts were obtainable had to
be paid for, such as towels, admission to
the grandstand, drinking water, etc. Even
with this add'ttonal revenue the tourna
ment association will lose a lot of money,
the expenses being unusually heavy. It Is
expected thers will be a deficit of about
. f!0,000. The attendance wa poor, largely
through the Indifference of the St. Louis
papers and the' Incompetent way In which
th scores were handled. Hotel acarmmo
datlons. although eomlrvgTather high, were
'good, the bad feature being the distance
of the principal hostelrles from the alleys,
a ride of a quarter of an hour befog- neces
sary to reach them. -
The selection of Cincinnati as the site
for the next tournament has met with gen
eral satisfaction among the bowlers In at
tendance at the tournament. When Garry
Herrmann undertook to lead the Queon
City delegation In its fight for the affair,
he went at the matter In a business-like
way and when he left Cincinnati for St.
Louis had enough signed pledges In his
pockets from representative business In
terests to cover the expense of running
the tournament. In addition he stated
openly that he expected to spend soma
money for the Accommodation of the vlsll
' Ing bowlers, and no one who witnessed
bis strenuous campaign here for almost a
week has any doubt of his Intention to
make good. .
Bumper Event Next Year.
Many predictions have been mad that
next year's tournament will eclipse any
previous event, estimates on the number
f five-men teams running as high as X.
These are based on the supposition of the
Suspension of the National Bowling asso
ciation event because of the failure of Its
'a m s- pts -
present tournament In the point of site.
It being argued that th east will be more
strongly represented at Cincinnati than In
any previous national event. Then the
date of the tournament, the middle of Feb
ruary, makes It ponMble for the ball play
ers who have been kept out of the Isst two
attnlrs. to be present, and Herrman's name
Is expected to swell the entry lists greatly
In this respect. ,
Special matches on the alleys after the
regular tournament was over and on out
lying drives during the progress of the sf-
falr, were not as numerous as In psst years.
This is accounted for by the absence of
the eastern delegation, few of the men
from other cities being willing to take a
chance against the crack Chicago ' men.
Quiet little Glen Fisher of the CLearys
proved the most steady winner In these
events, although Dave Woodbury rolled
probably the best ten pins. Jimmy Blouln,
Fred Mahoney and a few other of the
Chicago boys also went well, while the
veteran Max Drossman of Detroit proved
as effective as ever. His three matches
with Woodbury In the early hours of the
morning after the tournament wa over
were among the grandest ever rolled under
the circumstances, and Woodbury wa re
turned the winner only after showing the
best ten pins he had In stock and that Is
probably the best In the country. Some of
the Cleveland men also rolled well, al
though their star, Louis Fran, did not
take any part In any. Lee Graff of Indian
apolis was also the same steady winner as
Bl'R.SS AND PARR O CHICAGO MAT
Farmer Wrestles Gotch aad English
man French Champion. v
"Well, Burns has It on me; that' all I
have to say."
With this remark Jimmy Parr, England's
champion wrestler, dismissed the subject
of his Second defeat by Farmer Burns. He
and Farmer quit the mat Friday good
friends, even If the Farmer's Jaw was feel
ing the effects of Parr kick when Burns
had th to hold on him. -
Tarr Is a mighty good wrestler, one of
thn best,'' said Burns.
In the Burns-Gotch match at Chicago
Monday night Parr will wrestle the French
champion. Paul Pons, Ini the preliminaries.
If Purr wins he gets 1X0; If he loses he
gets nothing but his transportation.
Win or lose Burns gets a guarantee of
$MX). It Is more than likely he will lose,
lie cannot be" rated above Gotch, wonder
ful as ha is. He says himself, "Gotch 1
the best man in the world."
Speaking of close calls: In that first
fall between Burns and Parr Friday night
Pete Loch had to run his hand under
Burt. several times to determine whether
both shoulders were touching the mat. The
old man held out for several minutes Just
that close before Parr was able to bear
him down. Loch proved throughout this
season to be a fair and square and able
referee. And one remarkable feature of
his work was that he was the promoter of
these contests as well as the referee.
Had Parr won the Friday nlrht match
he and Beel would have been pitted against
each other at the Auditorium soon, but as
it went the siasdn probably will end with
the Burns-Parr contest. Burns wresties
Gotch In Chicago Monday night. Parr
goes away from Omaha admitting he was
beaten in a fair and square test cf wrest
ling ability. He said before the match this
time that he was In perfect shape and
would stand or fall or his merit. He fell
and yet he proved himself to be a mighty
man on the mat, whose defeat can only be
accomplished by a lew of the very best,
such as Gotch, Burns and and who?
That's the question, "who?" Perhaps the
Itusslan Lion and some people think Beel
might do It, but that's the question. Parr
is a top-liner. Burns has enjoyed so long
the reputation of being the best man in the
world for his weight that It is too late in
the day for anybody, no matter what the
circumstances are, to wrest from him that
distinction now. In his 47th year It Is to be
expected he might be conquered, but yet it
appears the only man able to conquer him
Is the world's champion, Frank Gotch,
thirty pound heavier than Burn and sev
enteen year younger. .
"That talk of fakes makes me sick," said
a follower of th wrestling game after the
match at the Auditorium Friday night.
As the crowd was leaving the building one
man was heard to remark that the bout
looked a little shady because the Farmer
had been able to throw Parr with such
apparent ease on the two last falls.
"The Idea of any fake is preposterous,"
as It was Burns won. Do you think for
a moment Parr would have let him win if
he could have helped himself? One has
only to consider the gain to see that too
much .was at stake for Parr to hav him
lose to Bums If he could help himself.
Had Parr won Friday night he would htive
been matched for a go with Beel, which
would have netted him 1700 or $800. A It
Is. he simply gets his share of the receipts
of the match wrestled, with no other
matches in prospect until next fall. And
besides, he has no claim on Gotch until he
can throw Burns or Beel."
Dt. Paul Hannibal Ellis, at the residence
of Judge Dtiffle, won the winter tourna
ment of the rlnratoga Whist club with the
remarkable score of fifteen points ahead of
his nearest competitor. His success In this
regard is almost phenomenal, having won
the recent trl-state championship series at
Sioux City, and two years ago beating all
competitors in the free-for-all at Put-In-Bay.
O., open to all comers and partici
pated In by the World's greatest players.
The doctor bear his honors modestly and
his success is due to careful study and
remavkable Judgment. His Judgments are
quick and untrrlng; he is a rapid player
and makes his decision on the Instant as
to what his play shall be and he rarely
makes a mistake. The Saratoga Whist
club, of which he Is president, owes the
Inspiration for its success almost wholly
to his enthusiasm.

pleasurable side of automoblllng. It has
been announced by the committee of the
New Jersey Automobile club the fuel test
conditions will not be embodied In the
three-day endurance run to be held May
t SI and June 1. It was found impossible
to draw up equable rules for touring cars
and runabouts of different horse power, so
the competition -wtn be based upon a strict
adherense to local speed regulations and a
prompt arrival at the controls. A penalty
of two points will be Inflicted for every
minute that the car Is too early, and one
point will be the penalty for each minute
too late. The three days' trip will cover
about 401) miles.
The Quaker City Motor club of Philadel
phia has perfected plans for Its Memorial
day hill climb. A stretch of hill shout a
mile long In Falrmount park has been se

eight classes. One event will be for Amer
ican cars of all types, one a free-for-all,
and another for the local club champion

made a formal and official request upon
Russia to Include In the program of th
next Hague conference th question of the
limitation of the expenditure on armament,
and ha notified the power invited to at
tend the conference of thi action. This
wa done some day ago and up to tho
present tha Foreign office ha not been ad

proposal. Neither haa Great Britain
learned the natur of the negotiation In
St Petersburg between the ambassador
of Germany and? Austria and Emperor Nich

hav had to do with th form In whloh the
subject of disarmament should b Intro

that Great Britain and th United State
would withdraw from the conference if
their wishes to discus the termination of
armament were not compiled with, and
that Germany and Austria would follow a
similar course If Russia ' Included this
question in the program, are stigmatised by
officials of the Foreign offlc as pur In

the conference, which doubtless will render
much good to the cause of humanity, be

today. "Great Britain, supported by Amer

WASHINGTON, March SO.-Based on con

the progress of the negotiations relative tp
the subject to be covered at the approach
ing second Hague conference, Stat depart
ment officials have reached tha conclueton
that there Is no reason to apprehend a
failure of th great International gather

with the assent of every power of Import

value to mankind. Most of the subject
ana legacies from the first conference, mat
ter which from lack of time or because)
the delegate at that conference were not
empowered to treat, were by resolution left
to be dealt with by a second conference.

war that hav occurred since the first con
ference. These subjects, proposed by Rus

program for consideration by all of the na
If nothing more were accomplished at
the second conference than action upon
these proposition the gathering surely
would result In great benefit, and It Is
entirely within the power of the confer
ence to limit It scope to such a pro
gram. But to allow for the development
of new condition, a paragraph In the
call for the second conference provided
that new topics, might be considered if
a majority of the delegate present at the
second conference by vote express a will

Topic May Be Eliminated.
Great Britain wishes to avail of this
condition to discuss a limitation of na
tional armament, and the United States
to urge the adoption as a rule of Inter
national law of the Drago doctrine pro
hibiting the use) of force by any nation
to collect International debt. Both are
controversial subject, and to reduce
possible friction the Russian government
has been sounding other governments to
develop their attitude, with result that
ar not wholly encouraging a to the re
ception that will be accorded these prop
ositions. Great Britain's present naval
predominance and the fact that European
nation are generally creditor hav
proved to be grave obstacles. But th
opinion among official her I that, re
gardless of th fate of the conditional
subjects, the conference will assemble
and discuss with beneficent result th
subject already accepted as it program.
