A BIG DEAL ON FOOT
Two Leagues to Be Formed From
the Present Western.
BUT ONE PRESIDENCY FOR HICKEY
Minneapolis in the Hits One With
3lilwa.uk.ee, lntlitiuuiiolia and
Other Old Irieuds.
Baseball history is being made rapidly
down on the Missouri river and events
are following each other as rapidly as in
cidents in a busy Central American revo
lution. Last Sunday a band of insurgents
met in Council Bluffs, where there are no
reporters, to rebell against Thomas J.
Hickey, president of the Western league
and to derail his scheme for major league
und minor league both of which should se
lect him as president. Yesterday there
•was something doing at St. Joseph and,
acocrding to the press dispatches, two
leagues were formed. The story sent out
is about as clear as Missouri river water,
but one fact gleaned is that Mr. Hickey
"Will resign from the presidency of the
■western league at a meeting to be held
•within a week.
The St. Joe meeting was attended by
Mr. Hickey, W. T. Van Brunt of the St.
Joe club, and leader of the rebels and
George Tebeau, who appears to have re-
Tired to Denver. No others were present
eppraently, but stil the reports have it
that a new baseball league was formed.
It is to take in Minneapolis, St. Paul,
Kansas City and Omaha, all members of
the western league, in the west, Milwau
kee, Indianapolis, Columbus and Toledo
In the east. This is simply magnificent
work on the part of the two for not a
representative of any of these cities ap
pears to have been within several hundred
miles of St. Joe yesterday. The western
league is to be re-organized and Is to
return to its old six-club circuit consist
ing of Denver, Colorado Springs, St. Jos
eph, Sioux City. Dcs Moines with Lin
coln in place of Omaha.
Van Brunt has given up hope of get
ting St. Joe into the larger league and
Bays that he will retire from baseball.
James Manning has practically crowded
George Tebeau out of Kansas City and
the latter is reported to have consented
to pledge himself not to sign any of the
Kansas City players. This would be no
hardship, for the Denver team ought to
have an easy time in the new western
A meeting of some kind will be held next
Friday at Chicago and President Hickey
■will be there, but just what will be on tap
has not been disclosed. A meeting of the
western league will be held soitewhere
In this broad land some day next week,
but further particulars are not obtainable
President Hickey is ambitious and
■wants to head a more pretentious organi
zation than the present "Western league.
While a league composed of the twin
cities, Kansas City, Omaha, Milwaukee,
Indianapolis, Toledo and Columbus would
make a fine circuit there may >be some
difficulty in organizing it. William
Rourke's open hostility* and his evident
intention to remain in Omaha seems to
dispose of that town as a possibility in
the new league, and yet it may be true
that when Van Brunt and Tebeau and
Hickey settled their affairs they also
smoothed out all other creases.
The evident intention of the Western
association to hang fast to the Toledo
end Columbus franchises looks like an
other tbig bar to the consummation. Pre
eumably the new league will become a
member of the National Association of
Baseball leagues and if so some under
standing with the Western association
must 'be reached. There is a fine* chance
to get into Chicago, however, and a team
in charge d? Captain Anson ought to 'be a
winner not only in the windy city, 'but all
over the circuit. Louisville should also
J>rove a desirable town. The proud col
onels would not go to the Western asso
ciation games to see the Wheeling, Day
ton, Marion and other clubs perform, but
ought to appreciate the fact that Milwau
kee, Kansas City and Minneapolis are in
It has been intimated that Louisville
cannot come down to minor league ball
and the magnates are afraid of the town
after Walter "Wilmot's disastrous experi
ment of last year. No explanation has as
yet been made for throwing A. C. Anson
and the Chicago plan overboard, and pos-
Biibly they have not (been thrown.
It is plain that the new league is far
from being a fact, still the circuit indi
cated above may eventually be formed.
OLD HEXLEY GONE!
SSnsllsh Oarsmen Must Defend Grand
Challenge Against Foreigners,
London, Nov. 27.—Truth, discussing the
effects of the decision of the stewards
of the Henley regatta to permit foreign
ers to compete in the Henley contests,
which was reached last Saturday, de
clares that the old Henley is gone and a
new Henley reigns in its stead. It must
be recognized once ; for all, says Truth,
that it is the business of English . oars

The article argues that the marvelous
results obtained by the American college
crews is due to the fact that while the |
English crews train in ill-fitted and
heavy boats, with prehistoric oars and
worn out bottoms, the Americans use the
best of everything from the start. Hence
forth this must be changed; the jealousies
between the English clubs must be ended
and these clubs must give up their best
men, adopt the best appliances and train
for one event instead of rowing in sev
eral. The club crew and the club entry
must also be subordinated to the interna
tional crew and the international entry-
READY FOR THE FRAY
McGovern and ''Young Corbett" Both
in Fine Condition.
When Terry McGovern reached his
quarters at Jerome Park, N. V., yester
day after a ten-mile run, he tipped the
scales at 122 pounds, and was pro
nounced by his physician to be in perfect
trim for his coming contest with "Young
Corbett" of Denver, Col. McGovern was
told that in "Young Corbett" he would
meet the hardest proposition he has yet
gone up against. His opponent, he was
informed, is a two-handed, swift, rush
"I hope he is," replied McGovern, "for
then neither he nor I will have any ex
cuse to make when the end comes.* '
McGovern expected to weigh in at 124
pounds when he reached the ringside at
Hartford, Conn., this afternoon.
There is very little betting among
! sportingmen here or elsewhere. Mo-
Govern men are offering bets of 2 to 1
and are finding few takers.
"Young Corbett's" physician pro
nounced him to be in fine condition last
night. He boxed several hard rounds
with Charley Sieger and went through
his usual practice, which was preceded
by an eight-mile run on the road.

Central Will Claim Championship if
Winona Loses To-morrow.
NORTH SIDE DEFAULTED A GAME
Forfeit Will Be Taken Advantage
Of by Winona and
If all accounts are true Central will
have her hands full when she meets Wi
nona to-morrow morning on Northrop
field. "Winona claims the western cham
pionship and will fight to the last ditch
to prove her claim to that distinction.
The improved form shown by Central in
the game Saturday with North Division of
Chicago is an encouragement to loyal
rooters and it is up to the Minneapolis
aggregation to show what they are made
of to-morrow. If they play football and
play it hard, they stand a chance of send
ing the would-be champions from the
southern part of the state back with a
nice big goose egg for their part of the
On the other hand, if the home players
allow their last victory to swell them up
to their condition previous to the North
Side contest, they might as well give the
AVinona boys the game without the pre
liminary struggle. Central has a good
team made up of the 'best high school
material in the state and there is no rea
son why they should not down their op
ponents in to-morrow's contest by a good
Winona has beef and a swift back field
that will gain at every opportunity, and if
they get the start of Central will easily
outdo them. Gage, one of the visitor's
best men, has a habit of hurdling the line
when lie cannot get through, and Bidlake
will have to keep an eye on that jumping
■back. Newman also is a good ground
gainer and will require special attention
on the part of the home players.
There is a feeling among Minneapolis
people that the game is of state impar
tance, in that North Side disbanded be
fore games could be arranged to fight with
them for the supremacy. The team from
northtown played a short schedule and
claim the state honors. Winona made
every effort to get a game with North
Side, as did St. Paul, neither succeeding.
There is some excuse, however, for North
Side's action, as their treasury was in
poor condition and the additional outlay
to carry the team through was more than
the managers thought they could stand.
Winona will claim that North Side has
forfeited all claims to first place by re
fusal to play and if they win from Central
to-morrow will hold that they are entitled
to top place. If the Winona aggregation
can take this ground then the Central
boys believe they are entitled to consider
themselves still the state's champions if
they succeed in holding- the southern Min
nesota champions down.
At all events, the game will be one of
great Interest and many parties have been
made up to witness tie contest on North
ro-i* field at 10:30 Turkey day.
Central's line-up to-morrow will in all
probability find Buffington at left end,
Brown at left tackle, Blackwell at left
guard and IH. McCarthy at center. On
the other side of the line either Morse or
Butler will hold down right guard, while
Hunter and Keyes will be at tackle and
end respectively. Back of the line Court
ney will give the signals and Bidlake will

50.0 of whom are expected to go down to
see Wisconsin's old rivals defeated.
Nothing but a victory for Wisconsin
is v looked for. but some of the wise ones
think the game will be harder than is an
tictipated. Coach King is not looking
• for an easy thing, and has told the men
that no lagging will be allowed. No bet

amount of money on a guess.

SOUTH DAKOTA TOPICS
Persistent rumors come from the state that
Coe I. Crawford is about tc withdraw from
the senatorial canvass. In a recent issue the
Aberdeen News declared that these rumors
seemed to be well founded. The Sioux Falls
Press also makes reference to them. When
the first public mention of them was made in
this column several weeks ago, Mr. Craw
ford lost no time in denying them and as
serted he could not withdraw and do the
fair thing by his friends. The editor of the
Sioux Falls Press promptly jumped into the
arena at that time to misrepresent the words
of this column and to scoff at the idea that
there was any likelihood or possibility that
Mr. Crawford would quit. The Press was in
great spirits, until a week or so later one
of its reporters turned in a story that hardly
jibed with its editorial utterances and went a
good ways to substantiate what had been said
in this column. Since then apparently the
Press has been lying low, waiting for de
velopments and hoping that a good-sized re
publican family row would result.
There are many indications that the de
velopments will not be long delayed. The re
ports as to Mr. Crawford are so persistent
that it is fast becoming generally believed he
will shortly withdraw from the race. Mr.
Crawford is not at war with any member of
his party. He is too large a man to be egged
on by the opponents of his party. He is
the friend of Senator iKttredge and he recog
nizes the hold the senator has upon his con
stituency. He did not entor the contest to op
pose the senator. He entered it as an op
position candidate to Senator Kyle and it is
only fair to him and no injustice to the
lamented dead to say tbat had the lines of the
original canvass remained unchanged he
would have had a splendid prospect of sitting
in the senate. But the senator's death and
the governor's appointment radically changed
the situation. Mr. Kittredge has gained
ground and Mr. Crawford has lost. This is
apparent to everybody. As the situation has
finally shaped itself, Mr. Crawford can hope
to wage no more than an honorable losing
battle against a man whom he had no thought
of opposing at the outset and one whom he
admires and would ordinarily delight in sup
It may or may not be significant that the
Huronite, which has done so much for Mr.
Crawford and has backed him up with tiger
like tenacity, has removed his name from the
head of Us editorial columns. At this dis
tance, and in view of the repeated reports,
it appears highly significant. The Huronite
swung out its ticket early and no issue was
put to press that did not show where it stood
—for Coe I. Crawford for senator —"the peo
ple's choice." But these mystic words have
not appeared for several days and their ab
sence has served to increase the talk and
speculation. Surely the situation is ripe for
developments. It is again up to Mr. Craw
ford to state his position and if the Huronite
has omitted his name by accident it should
restore the came at once. It is at least
a coincidence that Mr. Crawford's name should
be dropped by his home paper just as there

But should Mr. Crawford withdraw, there Is
likely to come a time when he will become
a factor. There will be other senators to
elect and he is still a young man and a
growing one. A little territory In the south
east corner of the state cannot expect to keep
the two senators always and his geographical
situation would be good for the senate or the
house. Why, for instance, cannot he make
headway in the canvass of 1306? Besides,
there will be a new governor to nominate and
elect in 1904. Mr. Crawford would grace any
of these positions. If he should pull out at
this time, It by no means follows that his
political career has ended. Good men are
not so numerous in the state that he can be
kept forever sidetracked. There are to be
other opportunities and he will not be for
gotten. His abilities entitle him to considera
tion and his friends are so loyal and tenacious
they will see he has it.
The withdrawal of Mr. Crawford would
leave the party's opposition without a leg to
stand on. With Kittredge as the accepted
candidate and but one candidate for senator,
the same as for governor and all the different
offices, the sweep ought to be about as clean
as it was last year. This is what the demo
crats —there are very few populists left—fear
above all other things, and this is about what
the fight will eventially resolve itself into.
Mr. Kittredge has shown wonderful tact hi
organizing for his campaign. Some of his
ancient enemies are now for him. Perhaps
Mr. Crawford is for him. Who knows?
The fact that "Uncle Nye" Phillips is going
to Washington as private secretary to Senator
Kittredge is taken as a settlement of the
Sioux Falls postofflce flght once and for all.

it will redound to the great advantage of the

The primary election Is the surest means

United States Marshal Kennedy, United
States District Attorney Elliott, David Wil
liams of Webster and perhaps several other
South Dakotans, will be in Washington Mon
day to see- Mr. Kittredge, the new senator,
sworn in. Somewhat later in December Gov-
Herreid expects to be called to New York,
and will also visit Washington before return
ing. State leaders look for Mr. Kittredge to
take eventually a commanding position in the
senate, and several of them years ago prom
ised themselves that when he went to con
gress they would be there to hear him taks
the oath. They have never doubted, appar
ently, that he would some day be a senator.
