Racing; Draws Oat at Least
NEW YORK, Jan. t-That il.OnO.OOO
spectators witnessed amateur and profes
sional sports in this country during the
last twelve months la sufficient founda
tion for the oft-repeated statement that
1S14 was a record year tn American ath
letic competitions. These astonishing at
tendance figures, equal to approximately
one-quarter of the total population of
the United States, are not the result of
haphaserd guessing. The attendance at
all forms ofsports contests was recently
the subject of discussion among a group
of writers and experts in this city and
after much comparison and conference
the foregoing figures were fixed upon
as being comparatively accurate and con
Only the Paid Attendance.
Tn the main these 25.000,000 represent
paid admissions, but not entirely since
in certain sports the paid attendance
forms but a small percentage of the total
assemblage of spectators. In some cases 1
the figures are official or semi-official. !
while In others they are the result of
careful tabulations gathered from club
secretaries, newspaper reports and esti
mates made by those qualified to gauge
the size and number of large crowds.
Base ball leads, as Is natural, and while
official counts are not available a total
of 9,000,000 was the general estimate as
the attendance at all games played un
der Organised Base ball control rep
scntlng as it does forty-three leagues
and almost 30 clubs. Foot bail comes
next with G, 293, 000. Parke Davis, member
of the rules committee and expert foot
ball statistician, is authority for this
estimate, together with the additional in
formation that 152.000 olayers participated
In 34,000 games during the season of ten
Horse Racing; Popalar.
It was the consensus of opinion that
approximately 1,000,000 persons witnessed
racing, trotting and pacing throughout
the country last year. Tennis and golf
proved hard problems since few accu
rate records are kept. The official fig
ures showed that close to 150.000 specta
tors paid admissions for the twelve days
of Davis cup tennis play and tho eight
days of championship play at Newport.
Another 150.000 was fixed upon as the
probable attendance at all other sec
tional, state and city tennis title tour
naments. Golf galleries, being without
admission feature, were not separately
Automobile, motorcycle and bicycle
races were allotted 500,000 and track and
flfld sports a similar attendance. These
figures refer principally to paid admis
sions, and. If they err, they minimise
rather than exaggerate. The two Inter
national polo matches between tbe United
Ptates and English teams drew 73,000
spectators to Meadowbrook last spring.
Probably 50,000 more followed the play in
other tournaments about the country.
giving a total of 136.000. The two big
college regattas at Pouglikceprle and
New London attracted 100.000 persons of
whom 30.000 paid for observation train or
boat seats. Other dual and triangular
varsity races, together with the national
and sectional regattas of the National
Association of American Oarsmen, raised
the toUl to 41,000.
Paylaa- for Paarlllam.
Boxing also found a prominent place in
the tabulations. Using the reports of the
New York and Wisconsin State Athletic
commissions It was estimated that fully
1.540,000 spectators attended professional
and amateur exhibitions and chsmpion
ship bouts during It'll. In New York
state alone the gate receipts as reported
to the commission, was In round figures
DW.OOO. gnd the attendance 400.0no.
No attempt was made to estimate the
attendance at golf and trap shooting
tournaments, where admission fees are
either nominal or entirely dispensed with.
Cricket, hockey. Lacrosse and yachting
were placed in the same category. No

WARD TELLS OF PEACE DEAL
Three Propositions Made to Buy
New Tork American League Club.
NOTHING BUT WAR AHEAD NOW
Independent Organlsatlea m Perma

pensive, Declares Dia
NEW YORK. Jan. 1-Presldent Robert
B. Ward of tha Brooklyn Federals, who
Is vice president of the Federal league,
la a statement tonight made public some
of the detstls of the fruitless peace nego
tiations with Organised Base Ball early
In the winter. First peace overtures, he
said, came when "Mike'' Cantlllon, owner
of the Minneapolis American association
club, whose proposition was for the Fed
eral teams In the west to enter the Ameri
can association and those In the east to
morge with the International league.
This suggestion was Instantly turned
down by the Federals, Ward said, and
Cantlllon then brought Into conference,
first In New York In October and later
several times In Chicago, Charles Wecgh
man of the Chicago Federals and Chair
man August Herrmann of the National
Three Propositions Made.
Ward said three distinct propositions
were mado to him to buy the New York
Americans at the same time that Weegh
man was given an option to buy the Chi
cago Nationals. Ward sold he was will
ing to purchase the Yankees and Wengh
man the Cubs on condition that the Fed
erals be sdmttted as a major league.
There was little thance for peace at any
time, Ward said, but talk along that line
was widely circulated by Organised Base
Ball In order to keep the minor leagues
quiet at the annual meeting of the Na
tional Association of Minor Leagues In
. Several Meetings Held.
Regarding the attempt to arrange a
sale of the Chicago club to Weeghman,
"There were several meetings between
Messrs. Weeghman nnl Herrmann In
Chicago and to aid in pacifying the minor
leagues eager to enlist with tbe Federals
there was spread broadcast a story of
iWeeghman's contemplated desertion of
the Federal league to become principal
stockholder tn the Cubs. Tills bluff of
'breaking the Federal league' quieted
the minora, but Charles W. Murphy
hopped forth and asserted himself In a
manner that left no doubt In the minds
of the fans regarding the system, which
hss prevailed tn Organized Base ball.
'The Federal league la a permanent
Institution In base ball. It may be con
sidered expensive, but we will continue
to build on a foundation of straight
forward dealing with the public and
harmony among the club owners. Be
cause It 's so unlike the organised base
ball system, some men cannot under-
stand why we can hope to succeed. The
public seems eager for the change. If I
may judge from the comments In recent
Johnson Denies It.
Ban Johnson, president of the Amer
ican league, tonight denied Ward's state
ment that he had three propositions to
buy the Ysnkees.
"A suggestion was made to me to per
mit Ward to buy the Yankees, but I
quickly said 'nothing doing,' " Johnson
said. "Everybody knows my stand on
the Federal league situation. From first
to last I took tbe stand that no Federal
leaguer could come into the American
league. I said then that if the National
league intended to permit the Federal to
buy several of tbelr clubs, It was their

DK9 MOINES. Jan. l.-peclal.)-The
last of the deals whereby the state of
Iowa comes Into possession of the prop
erty about the state house desired for an
extension of the raplto! grounds has been
completed. The area purchased, of actual
lots in about thirty-five acres. A tract of
five seres Is to be sold. Several other
acres which the legislature authorised to
be purchased, were not taken over and It
will be left for tho legislature to decide
whether this additional tract la really
needed. When completed. Including the
streets which are already public property,
and the areas already owned by the
state, there will he a tract of nearly
seventy-five acres extent, on which will
be not only the state hmtse but the his
torical building, the state library, the law
courts and library, the office building, the
heating plant, the soldiers and sailors
monument, the Allison memorial and
other things. The whole will make a
comprehensive and beautiful setting for
the group of state buildings, equal In
quality to the setting for the group of
city end federal buildings now provided
for In the city. The work being done
now la In the nature of clearing up the
old shacks and getting rid of buldlngs
that havs been unsightly for years. The
better class of buildings, and those that
are rented for good sum,, will le U ft for
the last, as the Income from these will
go far toward effecting the clearing of
the entire traot. A number of the build
Inga are being removed en bloc. Borne
of the brick flats that were en the tract
are being used for state offices while the
! 4ill Is temporising. The work of effect
ing the purchase was made In about a
year and a hairs time and at a
moderate expense. One real estate agent
was employed to handle the bustnrss and
the rest was dona by stsle officials.
Will Make Officials Obey Ike Laws.
Early this month a date will be set
for the commencement of the trial In
Hardin county of Charles Marks, mem
ber of the board of supervisors, accused
of malfeasance In office and rallure of
duty snd to be removed under the gen
eral statutes of the state. The county
attorney and someone from the office
of the attorney general wilt have charge
of the ease. The evidence on which the
action Is taken was compiled and pre
pared by the oounty examining depart
ment of the state auditor's office in con-
Junction with local accountants, who were
also at work on the ia.se. The main fea
ture of the esse is that In regard to the
county engineer and his office, things
were run contrary to law and In such a
loose manner that there was 1 vast
waste of funds. The county examining
department has made a great start In
tho direction of clearing up as to the
vsrious counties of the state. In many
Instances county officials have paid back
large sums to the counties after the
Investigations. A compete Hon made In
dicates that In the last year and a half
this department of the state uncovered
leakages aggregating over 14"0.0, not all
In any one year, but back a number of
years as covered by the Investigation.
The purpose of the department was to
require uniformity In county account
ing and county methods and strict com
pliance with the law In everything.
Hardly a county of the state was fuund
but that the examiners reported some
thing or other that needed attention
from tbe outside. The coining year the
examinations will be more rigid and It
Is believed that In the end the county
officials will have their offices on a
Ijaul of absoluts observtuire ot tho laws
of the state.
Carrying an Billy landay Work.
In a numher of the leading churches
of I es .Moines, whose membership aided
In the Hilly Sunday evangelist In cam
algii of ',it year, spevta) services Were
commenced today with a view to carry
ing on the work he so well commenced.
In some Instances the pastors will be
assisted by some outsiders, and moetlngs
will be hold each evening and continu
ing for several weeks. In some Instances
pastors of the city will exchange pulpits
and a number of teams of organised
workers will start nut to do personal
work on behalf of the churches. The
song books used at the bunday meet
ings will be made use of and every
thing will be done to make this work
one of continuing that which was com
menced in the big taliernade. The
hurches report many hundreds of acces
sions to tlitlr rsnks all ice tho (lore of
the mCRtlngs and It !s expected they will
gain many more by this work.

It Is regarded as certnln that the re

conspicuous position during the period

affairs of the state. .Mr. Trewin was a
storm center for a long time. His re

board or the Institutions, but It will
avoid sm controversy In the next legis

There Is some talk of maintaining an

while this Idea has not been taken up
owing to the expense, It has been dis
