It now appear that th Western league
may not gt Topeka after all. Thla hna no
rfarne to the desirability Of the deal, nor
baa It any regard for tho merit of the
aa. tt la almply that the magnate of
claea d, to which the Western aaaoolatlon
bolonga, have control over the clang A mag
nate, and have determined that Tnpka
may not advance. The Shlvetey league haa
' voted to refuse to allow the sale of To
k peka; Dr. Shlveley any a he did not Influ
I ence the Vote, which was 7 to 1, and dla
Vrlalma any reaponalblllty for the refusal.
He aaya Topeka will be In tho Western
aasolatlon or nowhere during the coming i
ean, and that appear to end It. Thl
on wo i ine Kink of baae ball law that
appear 'n little atrange to the lay mind, but
It la thW and all the Western league
rnagnatoS can do I to abide by It. Here la
the sltil.Ulon In a nutshell: Topeka wanta

U opeij; the men who run the little circuit
have It In their power to say yes or no to

all likely that the people of Topeka will
patronize the class C ball when they have
rnl -"i-ii '.iiibb ji dbii mai was open to
tnem. This will make Topeka a "dead one"
or the summer, and will probably end the
Ife pf tha Western association, which has
legended on Topeka a Ha main support.
-"fext year, then, Topeka will be available
i or the Western league without the aid or
k consent of the Western association, for

Western Leaerae'a Position.
flome of the writera who have discussed
thla question have put the Western league
In the attttude of a bin; boy trying to take
omethtng away from a smnller. This la
not, oorrect. But If the amaller has some
thing that Is of no use to him. and the
bigger offers him value In full for It, the
transaction would seem to be fair and the
stnall boy wrong If ho did not sll. That
la what the Western lnas-ue did. It went to
the Wetsern association and offered to pur
chase Topeka. The Western association
refused to sell. Dick Cooley. who owns
the Topeka franchise, tried to buy hi re
lease, and was turned down. The ease
was taken to the meeting of the National
Association of Minor Leagues, and there
the leagues below cls A voted to keep
Topeka from advancing. Then appeal was
taken to the National commlaslon, and It
wa sent back to the National board, aa
being a matter that concerned the minor
alone, but with a recommendation that the
minor board change the rule a to drafting
so that Topeka could be drawn by the
Wetsern league. The minor board met.
with Shlveley, who Is a member, present,
and after a conference, at which Shlveley
put hi own prtoe on Topeka, recommended
that the , Western association sell Topeka
to the Wetsern league. The money wa
ent by O'Nell to Shlvoley, but the little
fellow . refused to sell. In all thla con
'troVeray .the Western league has acted for
the beat Interests of organised ball, and
the -.Western association has acted against
not only Its own Interests, but the Inter
est of all other club. Refusal to sail a
town to a higher class ts just the same
refusal to sell a player. A team owner
who. would prevent a player from advanc
ing would be considered small, and a law
exist whereby he can be compelled to part
with the service of a town, hut the prin
ciple 1 the ame. The Western league haa
acted fairly and the Western association
unfairly throughout the entire controversy.

The Western league ha prospered for two
season with a alx-club circuit, and can
tand It for another. The town now In the
league are all live ones, and certain of
support (or their team. Each ha a strong
band of player to put Into the field at the
opening of play, and while Topeka and
Ht. Joseph will be missed, tho assurance
of good ball for the patrons of the Western
league 1 made tertaln by experience. ' It
is not Impossible that Shlveley and hi
follower will yet permit Topeka to be
taken over, but It they don't the Western
league will Joe; along with It lz-club cir

Manager Eager of the University of No-

for thla fall with both Wisconsin ana lowa
because of the refusal of the other' uni

elimination of the big nine conference ruler,
which prohibit fourth year men and post
graduates from playing.
With the news of the cancellation of
these games came also the announcement
of the arrangement of a game with the
University of St. Louis at St. Louis for
next Thanksgiving day. This. Thanksgiving
day game would not have been possible
had not the game with Wisconsin been
cancelled, as It would have made three
gamea away from home In succession.

John O'Malley, . the progressive young
philosopher, who is managing base ball
affairs at Crelghton university this year,
is gracefully bearing the laurels of suc
cess In his new departure. He has deviated
from, the course of former managers, and
Instead of playing the (mailer, colleges,
which his team hav been accustomed to
meet, he has secured the most excellent
schedule that the Institution has ever pro
cured. The' schedule Is not yet complete,
but will be published In a few days. '
The first big game which the new sched
ule records Is the University of .South Da
kota, Thla la. the fastest team In the atate
and Its score against the Sioux City West
ern league team last, year waa enough to
place It above amateurs. Denny Sullivan
of the American association, who attended
school there last year, played, the earlier
part of the season with that team of school
boys. The University of Missouri has been
contracted for April 26. Thl pa Vie will
be played In Omaha. Satisfactory terms
have been received from the University of
MInneaota, whom Crelghton will meet in
MInneapoIla May, J7. Nothing oan be said
definitely as yet concerning a gam with
St. Louis university.
The university boys are determined to
make a record in these games and place
Crelghton athletics upon a higher shelf.
If this season Is successful there is no
doubt but that next season will see th
best college team In the "Pig Nine" at
Omaha, All the college boy need I sup

Economical driving, a much-sought end,
can only be secured by using judgment,
and where a motor possesses great flex

corporations, which find they furnish the
most convenient and effective methods of
transportation- for linemen and other me

The vibrator spring and hammer should
be adjusted so as to stand about one-Blx-teenth
of an inch from the end of the coll

the engine will run without missing. When
this point Is reached the set screw should
be tightened. -
