In order to leave nothing lacking in the

day of the big meeting President Charles
W. Murphy of the Chicago National league
club apologised In open meeting to PreaV
dent Ban Johnaoa of thn American league,
who waa pi escnt at the session on Invita
tion for the purpose of telling what he
knew of the attempted orlblng of Umpires
Klem and Johnstone during the - closing
aerlea In Chicago between tha home
team and the Ictrolt Americana. The
entire bribery problem proved to be ao
difficult of handling that tt was decided
that the statements of the umplrea and ail
evidence in tha hands of the special com
mittees be turned over to tha national com
mission fur auch action aa It may de
termine. Chairman Hermann of tha commission
may call a meeting of the commanding
powers of base ball tomorrow to get to

plan tha umpires must be notified by the
home cluba in order that they may be on

ball would not meet the fate which has
overtaken horse r&clns throughout the
country and announced that name at the
magnates "were inclined to kill tha goose

It was when this atatement waa made
publlo and President Pulllam failed to ap
pear that a conference waa held and the
president asked that he be granted a leave
of absence. It la probable that he will go
to California Monday next.

ICH1PKE TO RBPLACK ttUILLIIt
Taat la tha Dove at the San ok Hemea
ava4 Other H oases.
There Is a growing belief at the Smoke
houae and In other sporting quarters of
Omaha that Bill Schlpke will play third
base for Minneapolis thia season.
Mike Cantlllon, manager of the Millers,
lias let Lee Qulllln go to Dea Moines; Joe
Cantlllon, manager of Washington, has
Hooght Wld Omroy from the Highlanders;
Hohipke played a great third for tha Sen
ators last year, but lacked in batting,
hanca tha conclusion that Skipper BUI will
be replaced In Washington by Conroy and
Qulllln In Minneapolis by Schipke.
Incidentally Qulllln will play in tha out
field at Dos Molnea, according to present
plana Qulllln is one of the disappointments
of base ball. No young player promises mora
than he, but whan ha went to the White
Sox ha eeemed unable to keep his head and
conaequeot'y soon became worthless to
Comiitkey, who promptly slid him on to
Minneapolis and now Minneapolis is
through vlth him.
Oonroy's sale to Washington Is taken by
aome good authorltiee to mean that Kid
Hlberfteld will, after all, be retained by
Kt&lllnga aa regular third baseman for
New York Americana and Ward will play
short. If thia dope provea correct and un
less tha rantankeroua Kid takes a wonder
ful brace In himself, things look better
than ever for Jimmy Austin. If he can't
put a tuck or too In El ber field at this third
corner It will be a surprise to many fan a
Kvldently Stalllnga meana to hang onto
Austin. He wouldn't dare talk of letting
him go- Not a team would waive on him.
Ha would be grabbed up tha moment Naw
York raised Ita finger.
BOSTOM REVOLTS AT CTS SALB

Tamaa Thia Seasea.
Devoteea of Cy Young In Boston threaten
to boycott tha Boston American league
team because President Taylor has sold
old Cy Young, their Idol, to Cleveland.
Young could draw a larger crowd than all
the rest of the team put together, and
ha won lila share of gamea, too, and would
have won many more had he. a team of
hla caliber back at him. Soma of the
alrongest baae ball nten in Boston are up
In arms and decsara that they will show
Taylor before this season ia over that ha
made the error of hla Ufa la letting out
the Grand Old Man.
When Lou Crlger, Young's old-time pal
and catcher, waa ald to tit. Louis It be
came evident that Taylor might let Young
go, too. But Young and Crlger both hoped
they might be aold to tha aame team, ao
that they could continue their association
of a score ot yeara.
Kicks and protests sre pouring in like an
avalanche upon President Taylor, who per
hapa is unable now to undo whet be has
Jimmy McAleer, manager of tha Browns,
and bia chief. President Hedges, still are
wondering how they oama to lose out on
Cy Young. When Lou Crlger was traded
to St. Louis, Young expreased his dissatis

to have Loula catch him and said ha would
not know how to act with any one else be
hind the bet.
Knowing this. MnAleer and Hedjree ma1n
overturea to rresldnt Taylor for Young's

Taylor thin asked MoAleer for an offor.
Jimmy made him one and John I. aald he
would ronalder it and let him know in the
morning. Jimmy would not eay what

veteran, but volunteered the Information
