NEWS OF SPORTDOM j
MICH. TO PLAY GHICAGO
LONG-STANDING BREACH HEALED
Manager* Agree to a Game Every
Year Alternating- Between Chi
cago and Ann Arbor.
The long-standing breach in athletics
between the Universities of Chicago and
Michigan, seems to have been closed at
last, and it seems that A. A. Stagg of
Chicago has gained his point. According
to an arrangement made Saturday between
Mr. Stagg and Manager Baird of the Uni
versity of Michigan, Chicago will meet
Mlohigan for Thanksgiving Day football
every other year on Marshall fieldu The
alternate years the teams will meet at
Ann Arbor earlier in the season. On
those Thanksgiving Days when tha two
universities do not meet, Michigan is to
play no game in Chicago. If a satisfac
tory schedule can be arranged, Michigan
will not play in Chicago next Thanksgiv
ing. Concerning the further arrange
ments the Chicago Tribune says:
Tie only difficulty encountered was in plan
ning a Michigan schedule for 1903, when the
first Thanksgiving meeting Chicago and Mich
igan will occur, so that Michigan would not
have all its moat important games away from
home. Both Baird and Stagg- mada out provi
sional schedules for that year, but none of
them was satisfactory to both, and the deci
sion was left until Jan. 8, when the Michigan
team will return from the coast. It was stat
ed by both Stagg and Baird after th« confer
ence that the Thanksgiving plan was satisfac
tory, and that every effort would be made to
secure an early adjustment of the remainder
of the schedules for the next two years.
The Chicago-Wisconsin game for next
Thanksgiving furnishes the main stumbling
i block. Chicago is not eager to play In Ann
i Arbor two years in succession, and Michigan's
schedule for next year is such as to throw
most of its games in the year following on
outside grounds. Efforts will be made be
tween now and Jan. 8 to alter conditions so
that the difficulties of the Michigan schedule
will be eliminated.
Coach Yost says his team is in excellent
trim to meet Leland Stanford on New Year's
Day at Pasadena The Wolverines are now
on their way to Pasadena.
In the discussion Saturday Coach Gost
proposed a schedule for Michigan includ
ing Harvard, Pennsylvania, Chicago, Wis
consin and, perhaps, lowa or Minnesota.
BEALL BETTER BE CAREFUL
What President Whitfleld of W««t-
era League Say*.
Jfmv York Sun Special S»rvio»
Kansas City, Mo., Deo. 23.—There is
trouble brewing in the Western league
which may result in the calling of a spe
cial meeting. Magnate O'Rourk, the
owner of the Omaha team, was in Kan
sas City .to-day in conference with Presi
dent James Whitfield and James Man
ning of the local club, and it was plain
something was in the air.
Both the magnates and President Whit
field refused to discuss affairs. But Pres
ident Whitfield let drop .the remark that
Beall, the owner of the Minneapolis team,
would better be careful. The belief
seemed to be that George Tebeau and
Beall were working together and that
Beall, in purchasing the Denver fran
chise, was only acting as an agent for
the Kansas City magnate. It was under
stood Beall, aa chairman of the circuit
committee, had authority to act.
The numerous reported sales of the
Denver club have aroused the suspicion
that all is not as it should be, and the
magnates here did not deny they didn't
like the looks of affairß in the west.
There is plainly a fear that Beall may,
after acting as a figurehead in Denver,
jump to the American association. Re
garding the reports sent out from Minne
apolis to the effect that Walter Wilmot
would own the Minneapolis team and oc
cupy Beall's Western league park, Whit
field was asked how it came that Wilmot
got Beall park.
"That matter Is up to Beall," replied
Whitfleld, which showed the faithfulness
of the Sioux City man wan doubted.
"The Denver franchise,*' said Whit
field, "is vested in the Western league
and cannot be sold to everybody anff any
body. All sales must be ratified by the
league, and It remains to be seen what
will be done in regard to the Denver mat
ter. We meet at the Baltimore hotel, this
city, on Jan. 14."

Opening Ice Yacht Regatta at Tonka
The Minnetonka Ice Yacht club, which
was to have held its opening regatta Sat

by the fickle wind. It was blowing fresh
from the south when the fleet worked out
of Wayzata bay and beat down the lake
for the start from the clubhouse, but be
fore the home buoy was reached the breeze
had almost died out. The crews of the
big flyers waited patiently for the wind
to take a second breath, but their hopes
were vain. Many enthusiasts who had

train were compelled to leave their snow

With appetites sharpened by the bracing i

U. S. POLO TEAM
Experts Who Will Participate in
New York, Dec. 23.—1t has finally been
decided that the United States will be rep
resented by a polo team in England in June
at the series of sports in connection with
the coronation ceremonies.
The American team will probably be
made up principally of members of the
Lakewood team, which won the champion
ship last season and which includes the
strongest and highest handicapped play
ers in the state. Foxhall Keene, who will
captain the American forces, it is said,
will be accompanied by Messrs. Lawrence
and V. M. Waterbury, Jr., John E. Cow
din and R. L. Agassiz. The first four
named members are members of the Lake
wood team, and Mr. Agassiz belongs to the
Myopias of Hamilton, Mass.
Aside from entries being made for the
tourney by the foremost county and cav
alry teams in England, there are expected
to be competitors from India, South
America and France.
NEW STEEL TRUST
One of International Character May
Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Dec. 23. —Charles M. Schwab,
president of the United States Steel cor
poration, has left Chicago with the in
tention of sailing from New York for
Europe within a week or ten days. Just
what Mr. Schwab will do in the way of
organizing an international steel fbor
poration with a gigantic capitalization is
not known to his Chicago friends. That
he has had the project in mind for some
time is not denied. The avowed object of
the steel magnate's visit is to look over
the field of steel manufacturers and open
ings for exports to Europe. Steel manu
facturers do not look upon international
combination as impossible. They are all
agreed that the sentiment expressed by
Mr. Schwab Saturday night at the bank
ers' club banquet is correct. The presi
dent of the United States Steel cor
poration 6aid at that banquet that "com
bination could not be stopped any more
than the Mississippi river could be
dammed or the tides could be turned
Taking such an assertion as a basis, it
19 easy to see, the steel manufacturers
say, how a corabina. nof all the owners
of mines, ships and smelters, rolling mills
and other agencies in the world used *n
the manufacture of steel products might
be combined into one gigantic unity.
