FAIL TO SCORE
COOL AFTERNOON BROUGHT A
SNAPPY FOOTBALL WORKOUT.
First Team, Mindful of the First Day's
Disaster, Did Not Give the Scrubs
Much Show at the GoalThe Work
of the Men.
Minnesota's second team had a hard time of
it lest night when It came to the scrimmage
work on the gridiron at Northrop field. The
memory of the Bcorlng of the scrubs rankled In
the minds of the varsity squad and there was a
determination that the joungsters should not
succeed in again placing the ball in the grass
guarded by the "opes of Minnesota. This de
termination stood the first team in good stead
before the evening was over. Once or twice it
looked squally for the big fellows, but dogged
persistence flnnlly won out. The scrubs sprinted
to the shower without a score to their credit.
A chill, raw wind blew over the field and
numbed the players when they were not In ac
tion. The gates were locked and only a fev\
watched the practice. Those who did remain
to look shivered with the cold until the play
warmed up. Then, like the plajers, they became
warm to the work and lost all thought of climat
Scrubs Kicked Off.
The scrubs were given the klckofl. Weisel
booted the ball to Fred Hunter, who* came back
in vigorous style, but was stopped before he
bad gained thlrty-flve yards. The varsity had
not warmed to the work and in a short time,
tolling gains, the ball went to the second squad.
Varco was dangerous and was once headed in
time to prevent another one of those spectacu
lar but hopeless sprints down the field. He
bobbed around like a fox terrier in a kennel of
mastiffs and was the cause of more worry to the
big fellows than the other ten men on the sec
ond squad After Varco's effort the varsity set
tled down to business and soon had the ball.
Tschabold as the first man to rip up the second
squad and he did it, leaving a wake thru which
a moving van could have passed without scratch
ing leather Jieadgear. The scrubs battled valiant
lv and blocked the masses and end efforts of the
varsity in good style for light men. The ball
passed bnck and forth but when Dr. Williams
decided to coach the first team a bit on mass
work the varsity began to carry the second team
before them with the stately precision of warm
sorghum down a concrete floor of a grocery cel
Varco's First Stunt.
A fumble sent the ball whirling into the atr
and Daniel Smith went up into the air after
it and lit running. He was clear and away and
Varco after him. After a pretty run the candi
date for quarter cnught the big offender and
threw him with a jolt that rattled the cinders on
the running track Ricker was given a little work
thru the lino and came at the scrubs with telling
tactics and strength. They clung to him like
leeches but Ricker carried the ball thru for a
good gain Ills work Is improving. He is
flhoniiiir more earnestness and his Bpeed Is im
The ball was forced up to the shadow
of the sciubs' goal posts and a final bang thru
the line gave the varsity the first touchdown of
Hunter Showed Speed.
The varsity kicked off next and a bounder was
Balled bj Vnrco, who started a good return. He
threaded his way thru the advance but was soon
on the sod The second squad was soon com
pelled to kick, and Fred Hunter came back with
the ball, doing some cle\er dodging until he
finally slammed down the ball after a run of
sixty-five yards Soine clever interference on
the part of the big fellows made the second
The sciubs took the next kickoff and the
varsity got the ball back to the center before
they were stopped. Then scoring effort seemed
to stop and those In charge of the team ap
peared to give up the idea of ground gaining ana
began to try formations and drilling the first
team on quick charging and general tactics.
There was a complexity of play in which the
new men on the team were given vigorous les
When the scrubs got the ball they found the
varsity an unsurmountable barrier, altho at
times slowness of some of the players on the
first squad seemed to be of a fatal quality.
When this came to the attention of those in
charge, the offenders were sent thru, back and
around until they showed improvement Percy
Brush went into the work with more spirit than
he has shown before, and against the lighter
team was a ground gainer on several occasions.
Bandelln was having the time of his life
against Mose Strathern, and, while football is
yet a big book for the new man, he was after
the.veteran In a style that kept him attending
strictly to his knitting.
How They Played.
Luce was at it again, and Bobby Marshall gave
several valuable demonstrations of how to do
things. The trouble was that most of the new
men were busy with troubles of their own and
only caught hurried glimpses of the thin fellow
as he flitted about. Burgan was working hard.
Tschabold was a willing scholar and showed to
some better advantage. Case was at tackle on
the second teain and demonstrated ability at
piling up mass plays. All thru the varsity
team showed to better advantage when It came
to the offensive work.
Jimmy Irsfield made a dash or two that re
called memories of former spectacular bits of
play, and Kremer, who was out in place of the
absent Current, put considerable snap into his
Changes in the Teams,
The teams were shifted a bit in makeup from
those of the night before. Hunter was at
quarter in place of Cutting, on the first team,
and Irsfleld's present put Nuessle into the second
team. Dick Hunter replaced Vita on the second
team, Sanborn was in the second bunch and
Welsel made his appearance with the second
team. Taken all ta all, it was a valuabU)
trorkout for the candidates.
Arrangements are under way for Saturday's
ame with St. Paul and Minneapolis CentraJ
igh schools. Tickets are on sale on the Bast
Side at the students* bookstore and down-town
at Voegell's. It is expected that there will be a
good turnout, as it will be the first opportunity
Of the year to see the gophers at work. St.
Paul will send over a big school delegation, and
It is expected that Central high will have half
$f their student body out to help along.
Twenty at Training Table.
About twenty men are now at the training
table, and additions will be made from day to
day. Dr. Williams' work is well under way ana
he is going at the work in hammer-and-tongs
atyle. He has a big task before him to elimi
nate the lesser talent and pick the team. There
are mny men with little difference between
them in ability and weight. There are some
newcomers who have not yet been considered as
dangerous competitors who are to be settled
with. Careful choosing will be necessary, and,
in the language of the tailor shop, Dr. Williams
"has his work cut out for him."
HAMLINE SQUAD OUT
J"ootball Team on the Gridiron Under
Eye of Coach Hollister.
With a first-class coach to whip the men into
line and lots of good material to be whipped,
the Hamline university football team is starting
out the season in good shape. Jack Hollister,
Michigan's star halfback and Belolt's coach for
the last five years, has been secured to Instruct
the Hamline students in the art of football plny
lng. Five members of last year's team have been
lost thru graduation, Horrigan. Nelson, Kennedy,
Gould and Glllmore being the missing stars.
Beal, tackle Stoiberg, guard Franklyn, quar
ter, Caldwell, halfback Smith, end Manuel,
end, and Putz, end, are all old men who will be
back this fall. Hollisler looked the men over
and expressed himself a% well satisfied with the
material present, but wants more just like it,
as there were not enough men present to make

Hamline, Nov. 9 Nov. 16, Macalester at Ham
line. Games with the various twin city high
schools are also being arranged.
MOVES INTO THE CITY
Curtis Breaks Up His Preliminary
Madison, Wis., Sept. 14.Head Coach Curtis
has abandoned the preliminary football training
camp at Lakeside and is training his gridiron
candidates on the university campus of bare,
hard clay. The change was cansed by the fact
that the constant arrival of new men made the
training camp inconvenient, because the camp
quarters were too meager for the large squad
and facilities were not at hand for the care of
Blight injuries which must result daily with
the commencement of hard practice.
Graduate Manager Kilpatrick desires that
Walter Steffin, the crack hurdler and football
Quarterback from the north division (Chicago)
high school, who reported Monday night, be kept
out of football on account of his light weight and
in order to save him for the track team ne\t
spring, but Coach Curtis is determined to try the
youngster at quarterback, even tho he weighs
less than 140 pounds and notwithstanding the
fact that it had been early determined to tiy
the heavy quarterback game at Madison.
Coach Curtis wants a good kicker, for the
lack of which the badgers suffered last year,
and because of the possession of which, in Eck*
ersoll, Chicago won the Wisconsin game. Stef
fln is said to be the superior of Eckersoll in
accurate drop goal kicking, and as the Wiscon
sin squad contains the heaviest men In years,
the light weight of Steffin, should he make the
team, will not be a serious matter.
PRINCETON GAINS ATHLETES
Williams Returns from a Western For
Princeton, N. J., Sept. 14.R. E. Williams,
captain of the Princeton track team, will return
to college next week, accompanied by three
promising young track athletes from Chicago.
They are Wllkins of Lewis institute, a pole
vaulter, Comstock, who was captain of the
Hyde Park high school team, and French of
Lewis institute, who has shown good form as a
Wllkins vaulted at the Olympic games as a
member of the O A. A team and the other^ two
give promise of developing into good track ath
letes. Williams also tried to get Hogensen,
who is a very promising young springer, to enter
the New Jersey institution, but the youngster
decided to go to Chicago university.
'PUNK" WEBSTER A COACH

"Punk" Webster will, in all probability, ba
selected as coach of Central high's football squad
and the dope has It that "Slg" Harris will assist
in the woik, while Castor, who has charge of
the second team, will be on the field daily.
After preliminary work yesterday afternoon, this
fiist and second teams weie lined up and wem

There are but four of last year's men out,
and they are all showing up strongly. Captain
Frank Morse is again at fullback, and both
tackles, George La Vejea and Bollin Smith, are
back at their positions. The other man is
George Storer, who will again play left half.
There are two men out for quarter, Roy Saxton
and a brother of Fred Hunter, who Is trying for
a place on the varsity team. Jamison, who
plajed a halfback position on the Ohio Military
school team, is trying for a place in the back
field. Among the heavy men who are new to
the game are Schroder, Mellin and Austin.
The lighter men who are fast and apparently
have a chance for making the team are Green,
Cobb, Riddell. John Cogan, Wiesman, Mojer,
Simmons, Tobln and Parker.
Iowa Will Attempt to Scrimmage
and Score After Darkness
Iowa City, Iowa, Sept. 14.A football game
by electric light is the novelty under considera
tion by Manager Henry G. Walker of the Uni
versity Athletic union. Mr. Walker was in
Cedar Rapids recently and took the matter up
with an interurban company, and a plan may be
formulated whereby the railroad men, who also
own an electric light and power plant, will pro
vide sufficient Illumination for the athletic park
here to permit the playing of a game under the
A goodly number of globes, suspended from
aloft, it is believed, may be so used to dot the
Iowa field that the wide tract may be as well
illumined as tho It were day. It is thought
that a good Iowa gamsay with Grlrv
nellwould attraot such a throng as Iowa City
has never before seen on a football day, with
such a novelty to be featured.
The preliminary season opened in a "blaze
of glory" yesterday, when twentyj candidates
arrived, and they went into training. For econ
omy's sake, Manager Walker has dispensed with
a camp up the river this year, and the men
will work on Iowa field.
The old men back are: Griffith, quarter Jones,
captain and left half Allen, right half
Schwinn, left tackle Atkinson, right guard,
Magowan, right tackle, is expected soon. The
team has lost Donovan, left guard, who is with
Wisconsin Johnston, center Watters, end
Coulthard, end, who were graduated, and Fred
Buckley, who may work this year on his father's
A prominent candidate for Donovan's post ar
rived today in the person of Hllwlg, a veritable
"find." He is the son of Dr. Hllwig of Corning,
and both father and son are eager to see tb
name of Hilwlg worthy of note in the football
world. The young man is 6 feet 2 inches in
height and weighs 190 pounds. He has played
the game in minor' circles for several years,
and, if he "makes good" here will be a valuable
man truly. Ballard, if he tries for center, may
fill Johnston's shoes, as he did for a brief time
last season. A likely candidate for that posi
tion, however, is Moore, last year'a excellent
subcenter. Knapp is a strong man for end,
with Coyle, light but good, as another. Roy
Buckley, a sub last year, and Earl Bowersox, a
Shueyville player on the old Coe college team,
now deputy treasurer here, are fine at half.
These athletes, with a good record at Coe, will
show well at end and full, respectively.
Bowersox will give up his work as deputy county
treasurer to enter the university.

the shot. He breaks world's recoids and yet ll

James Jeffries, champion heavyweight pugilist

This news has not as yet been broken to the

not as yet had time to recover from the Munroa

and declares that he is the only man iu tho
world capable of knocking out Jeffries. In
a letter to a Chicago friend, he is credited with

"There is no reason to believe that I couh.

Rose is 18 years old, is 6 feet 7 inches in

OUT A DOPESHEET
Tells How, When, Where and
Why He Will Beat
New York Sun Special Service,
By Clark Griffith.
Now York, Sept 14 We play five games in
three dajs with the champion Bostons, and I
count on winning the majority. We have had
the best of the Bostons in eveiy series we have
plajed there this season, and I see no reason
why we cannot continue our successes.
My team is in the best condition it has been
in this year, and, as the Bostons are no stronger,
I cannot see where they have anything on us.
The series is one of the most important of the
year. If we can win the odd game, we can get
the lead if they aie that fortunate, they get it.
But I have noticed all thru the season that my
boys are always very good when they have ft
fight and hand.
We have been to Boston at several critical
times before this year, and we have never
failed to more than hold oui end up. I havft
no weak ones on my team, and every man can be
depended upon. While the series will not posi
tively decide the championship, still I consider
it a crucial test, and go to meet our closest
rivals with confidence and determination.
I will pitch Chesbro in at least two games out
of the five in the series coming. I cannot see
where the Bostons have us beaten at all on
pitchers. I look to see us leave Boston with
flying colors. We will take the lead away from
them and hold it until the end of the season.

New York Sun Special Service,

of the American league and one of the owners
of the Washington club, sprung the second sur
prise ypsterday afternoon.
"I am in a position to state the lineup of
next year's Washington team," he said, "and
it will be a strong aggregation. We will have
Case, Patton, Townsend, Wolf, Hughes and a
couple of joungsters to do the pitching, witb
Drill and Clark for the backstops. Jack Stahl,
who has proved the find of the year, will play
first base. Young Nell of Colorado Spring i
and Barry McCormick are the candidates fof
second place. Cassidy will be the shortstop
and Hill the third baseman. O'Neill, who in
my opinion is the fastest youngster in the
country, will remain in left field, and for center
we will have Charley Jones, who played this year
with St. Paul.
"Congalton probably will be the right fielder,
altho we have Huelsman in reserve. Pat Dbno
van will in all probability continue to manage
the team, but from the bench. The combination
of talent will give the opposing teams a strong

talk is contained in his intimation that Pat Don

CHANGE IN, VIEW
Havenor Is Willing to Part Com
pany with the Brewer Ag
Milwaukee, Wis., Sept. 14It is possible that
the Milwaukee ballclub will change ownership
before the spiing of 1905. At least, there is a
proposition being considered now whereby a num
ber of local business men may purchase the
club outright from C. S. Havenor, or they may
secure a controlling interest and reorganize the
club entirely. The Idea Is to have a stock com
paiy with about 100 members, the same as at
Columbus, where the club has been most suc
In speaking of the matter this morning, Owner
Havenor said: "Yes, it is true that I have
offeied to sell the club and franchise to a com
pany of local business men, if they make a good,
substantial offer. I do not ask for unreasonable
terms, but think the club is now in a position
where it would prove a money-maker. It is not
the same as two years ago, when the club was
losing money and the association was in poor
shape owing to the baseball war. Now there
is organized baseball, and there is only one club
here, with salaries down to their proper level.
The plant is in good shape, and I have some
thing to offer for the money.
"It is immaterial to me whether the company
buys the club outright or takes a controlling in
terest. I would prefer to have the club bought
outright but still I am willing to give the con
trolling interest and then join in and help keep
the club to the fiont. I cannot do more than
that, and I will give the club over to the proper
parties at reasonable terms. There were many
people who talked about taking the club when It
was a losing venture, so there should be no
hesitancy on their part now to invest in some
thing that has a future. It is up to the people
heie to buy or take an interest in the club.
They have said they wanted to get into the
business, and I now offer them the opportunity."
It is understood the price asked for the club
and franchise is around $15 000, which would in
clude a ten-j ear lease on the park- at a very rea

BACK IN THE
MILLERS "GET IT" IN A SAD SORT
OF WAY AT ST. PAUL.
The Brilliant Work of Past Two Weeks
Overstrains Watkins' Men-Game
Goes All One WayLast Game at
Home Played This Afternoon.
It was a case of back to the woods with the
millers yesterday afternoon, and when the Wat
kins spurters, who have been winning games
and laurels galore during the past two weeks,
had been safely planted in the timber deep the
whole tale of slaughter was told in the score
of 7 to 0.
And bloomin' old St. Paul didn't need the
game a bit.
But the chilling wind of yesterday waB accom
panied by a frost which descended upon Lexing
ton park and, carefully skipping the unjust ag
gregation being piloted by Messrs. Kelly and
Lennon, dropped in huge gobs on the Just from
the flour city. When the Minneapolis team
crawled from under the deluge they found them
selves in -the second division, with the colonels
one lap ahead of them.
It was partly Mr. Morgan and it was partly
almost everybody else but Mr. Morgan was re
sponsible for much of it. The saints took a
great liking to his style of delivery from the
inception of the game, and after the first in
ning sent samples of leage baseballs all over
the Lexington park lot. Ragged support and a
few slips of the tongue made by Umpire Hart
gave the saints their start. Another score was
scooped in during the third inning, and In the
sixth Mr. Morgan was treated to some of the
ra^idest rapid firing of the season. After that
it was but a question of how much.
Incidental to the game, and in no way de
tracting from its merits, was the passage-at
arms between our own "Buck" Freemanhe of
the light hair and the black spanieland Umpire
Hart over a little matter of decisions. It wa
just after the home team had been retired in
the ninth on a double play initiated by Jones.
Mr. Freeman belayed Mr. Hart with sundry
heavy arguments. Mr. Hart beat a tat-too on
Mr. Freeman's person, and a policeman played
the minor role in the tragedy.
This afternoon the millers will appear on their
own grounds for the last time this season. It
will be a case of playing off the tie game of
I Labor Day with the saints, and Nicollet park
will be crowded by the loyal fans, who think no
less of the splendid work done lately by the
millers because they did fall down yesterday.

WITH THE AMATEURS
The Northwestern Casket company team was
defeated by the Klears nine by a score of
16 to 8.
Martin Schroeder wishes to announce that the
Holtzermans were not defeated by the Minne
hahas as the game broke up in a row over a
decision made by the umpire. There was one
man* out and a man on third base, when there
was a misunderstanding between the .umpire and
the players, so the game broke up, the Minne
hahas refusing to play. The Minnehahas left
the field and the umpire forfeited the game to
the Holtzermanns by a score of 9 to 0. The
winners would like to arrange a game with any
fast amateur team in the city for next Sunday.
For games address Martin Schroeder, 2201

Battle Last Night.
New Yolk Sun Special Service.
Baltimore, Sept. 14.Hughey McGovern last
night received the decision oyer Kid Bebee of
Philadelphia after fifteen rounds of harft light
ing before the Eureka A. C. The battle was
a fast one from start to finish. McGovern did
nearly all the forcing but in the Philadelphian
he met a worthy foe.
Beebe put up a game fight but in Hughey he
met his superior. After the tenth rourd the
battle was fierce. Slcence was thrown to the
winds and the two boys fought like demons. Mc
Govern stood the pace better than his adversary
and in the flfteeuth round, in which the two
hammered each other all over the ring, McGov
ern had Beebe hanging on to avoid punishment.

New York Sun Speoial Service.
New York, Sept. 14There was one man
who was wildlj enthusiastic over the success
of Africander in the cup preliminary race yes
terday at the Brighton Beach track. It was
Charley Gates. He had placed $100 on last
year's suburban winner against $2,000 just for
bid times sa^e, aud never gave the result .1
second thought until the horse swung into the
When Africander moved up from the rear and
became a contender Gates became alive to the
occasion aad began TO yell for his choice. At the
finish, whon Africander oeat McChesney out a
head, young Gates gave vent to his feeling iu
whoops of joy.
The nmount he won, comparatively an in
significant sum to him was not responsible for
the exuberance of splrlts. The fact that he had
beaten a "long shit," a horse that nearly all
horsemen despised, was a source of oy to him.
