Rain, tons of it, prevented tbe reds from
getting at Columbus again yesterday afternoon.
The millers gatheied at the clubhouse and dis
cussed the best ways to break up the- pitching
of spit bulls by opposing twirlers. They finally
vlbited a drug stoie near by and bought a
supply of prussic, nitric and oxalic acid and
tincture of iion. These various discouragers
weie applied to all of the reserve baseballs in
the place and the nest pitcher who attempts^
any foolishness with the floaters will get his
mouth full of instant death This rumor re
mains unverified, but it is vouched for by Denny
Sullivan, and he ought to know.
Columbus remained at the National hotel,
wheie the players invaded the chapel and lis
tened to the playing of the "Holy City" on the
pipe organ by the professor. "Lefty" Davis

hotel, and during the afternoon bought five safety
razors to use in cutting meat for the ham
sandwiches. Friends took Congalton down to
see where the river bank caved in and Ollie
Pickering spent the afternoon watching the
windgauge of the weather bureau on top ol[
the Guaranty building. Hulswltt wrote "Umps"
Sullivan on a punching bag in a penny museum
on Washington avenue, and Ryan and Barbeau
spent all their spare change in dropping coins
in the slot and then seeing how hard they could
Bill Clvmer wandered up into newspaper row
and watched the presses run. He told the
crowd that tbe big machines would print moie
papers in a minute than the hand press at
home could print in a year. Sam Brown spent
most of the time riding up and down Hennepin
avenue on the street cars, and seemed pleased
with the experience. Berger and Dorner went
to the theater, and on their return told all the
fanny gags to their team mates. They all
laughed. On the whole an Idle day in a large
city was a good thing for the boys from the
country. They saw lots of strange things and
liked it immensely.
This afternoon a double header Is on and the
fur is flying These fellows play a pretty fair
article of country baseball and tbe only danger

Tenth Battery Performed in Won
derful Time at Fort Spell
An artillery team from the Tenth battery at
Fort Snelling knocked seven seconds off the
army record yesterday in the manipulation of
a gun. The record was made la the athletic
competition. The manipulation, which was ac
complished in 1:47 3-5, was carried out under
the following regulations:
Artillery Gun Detachment ContestEach de
tachment to consist of, caisson corporal, gunner
and seven cannoneers, wearing equipment and
posted as prescribed by drill legulations at
piece limbered, without horses, caisson, corporal
in any position near piece. At signal, unlimber,
fire one blank cartridge, dismount piece and
carriage, laying wheels and carriage on ground
mount piece, flr another blank cartridge, limber
up and resume positions occupied before be
ginning of contest. Cartridge may be carried
by No. 2.
The teams which participated in the contest
were as follows:
Corporal Freika, Corporal Roberts, Privates
Weinberger, McCourt, Boyle, Cooley, McCollin,
Knudson, Musician Kneissei and Private Hinch,
supernumerary, Thirtieth battery.
Corporal Smith, Corporal Blomberg, Privates
Scherer, Prunkard, Booth, Maxwell, Flick, Coe,
Maze, Paul, Tenth battery.
Rain prevented the carrying out of the last
two events scheduled, a tug of war and relay
race. The ball game, in which the infantry
was to be pitted against the artillery and
cavalry, also was postponed.
The features which proved by far the most
popular were the two strictly army events, the
infantry wall-scaling contest an* the artillery
gun detachment contest. In the former event
each company in the regiment had a team of
three men entered. The teams started twenty
feet from the twelve-foot wall. They climbed
over the wall with arms and equipment and
fell in at order arms on a mark twenty feet
behind the wall.
The Companv E team, composed of Privates
Higglns, Diotte and Royce, was the winner In

say-so of onp troubled spirit.
"Coming right down to the facts, It may be
written down that if Wisconsin is to embrace
the only opportunity it has to make a showing
against the east it will have to have ample
funds, first for the engagement of the best
coach and trainer that money can hire and sec
ond for incidental accessories. It is for Wis
consin and the west to say what the future
shall be. Either necessary funds must be pro
vided or else Wisconsin must continue to be a
feeble factor in the event. With the magnifi
cent possibilities it possesses and considering
what is involved, it would be a crime against
spoit to let Wisconsin drop merely because of
the lack of substantial support."
So it would, but why do not Wisconsin men
bend their eneigies to building up rowing
among the natural rivals, Minnesota and Chi
cago and Michigan? That would be worth while.
Why.. o so far from home for jFoWlng when
surrounded by wnter and universities where
rowing might be made important? Stay at
home, Wisconsin, and do something worth while
you have been chasing rowing shadows too long.

IN BIG LEAGUE
Ebbetts Announces that Trolley
Dodgers Will Be Strength-
New York, Aug. 80.There Is not a particle
of truth in the rumor that the Brooklyn club
will be flronped from the National league next
spring and join the Eastern league. President
Charles JH. Ebbetts of tbe Brooklyn club is
authority, for the statement when he says the
troljey dodgers will still be playing the major
league next season, he is calling the right turn.
I speaking of the matter President Ebbetts
"There will be a National league club In
Brooklyn next season, and I shall be at the
head of it. It is true that we have lost some
money, but that is to be expected by a club
In last place. We have done no worse than
New York with its tall-end club, and Pittsburg
and Cleveland when they were at the bottom
and were forced to transfer their games to
other cities. That we will never do. Brook
ljn is essential to the National league, if only
for the rivalry that "It excites with New York,
and when the team Is strengthened there will
be no one to suggest any circuit change."
BIG BIRDS BABE
AT THE TRAINS
i in i
Fine Stories of Game Along the
Nebraska and Dakota Bail
Special to The Journal.
Sioux City, Iowa, Ang, 30.With the opening
of the prairie chicken season Friday, the sound
of the riflle will be lieard In northern Nebraska
and South Dakota, where It is reported the
chicken crop this season Is the largest In the
history of the states. The game laws have
had something to do with it, but the season has
been very good, except along the lowlands where
the nests were drowned out. In the central
part of South Dakota, along the Milwaukee &
&t Paul railroad, chickens are so thick that
they are flushed along the right-of-way by
trains. Passengers could enjoy several hours
of shooting west from Mitchell if they were
allowed to fire from the windows.
In South Dakota a license fee of $10 Is re
quired. Game wardens have been active and
fanners have assisted In keeping hunters off
their land, even in the open season. This is
why the chicken crop is large, Nevertheless
there are always a few "sooners," who under
pretext of training their dogs, bag a few birds
before the season opens, and this year Is no
exception. Twenty five birds is the limit one
man Is allowed to kill. In spite of tbe law,
many hunters kill as many as a hundred a day,
but the South Dakota faimers and wardens say
they will do all they can to stop this slaughter.
GAMBLERS PLAN TO
N THRU POLITICS
New York Sun Special Service.
New York, Aug. 30.A movement has been
started among the leading New England horse
men to organize for poolselling on tracks and to
carry on the flght at the polls this fall. They
propose to extend the movement to other states
where there is a ban on race-track poolselling.
No political party Is to dominate the organ
ization, the me'tnbers being free to vote for
whom they choose so long as the ones picked
favor the objects of the organization. The fight
will be made particularly strong in this state,
where the tracks have had the most trouble on
the subject of poolselling and betting.

New York, Aug. 30After a stay of more
than two years in France "Kid" Lavigne, once
the world's champion lightweight fighter, has
returned, to Ameiica. The erstwhile great
fighter says that he has had all he wants of
the other side. Lavigne conducted a school of
\oxin "Willie in Parts ana taugnt. m&Tiy ot tbe
French nobility and aristocracy much about the
American style of boxing. According to him,
the national sport of la savate has taken a back
seat and the American and English* game has
come to the fore.
In a short time Lavigne says he -will bring
to ttis conntry two of the PeBt la savate. fignter*
in that country and he will endeavor to show
Americans the style of fighting that is so popu
lar in France.
While Lavigne was in France he married a
French woman and today he started for bis old
home in Michigan with her.
CASPER WHITNEY MAD
AT THE RULES' MAKERS
(Caspar Whitney in the September Outing.)
By its recent inaction the football rules com
mittee has again demonstrated its unfitness for
either the responsibility of legislating for the
players, or of the trust of the college world In
committing to their care the future of a splen
did game It is waste of good time to argue.
The committee has repeatedly shown, itself to
be not above local and partizan prejudices its
members have legislated like a parcel of boys
with an eye to the next season's game only.
Of some of the members of the committee this
was to be expected of others it comes as a
disagreeable^ and unwelcome surprise The com
mittee consists of Walter Camp of Yale, W. T.
Eeid, Jr., of Harvard, Professor L. M. Dennis
of Cornell, Professor Fine of Princeton, A* A.
Stagg of Chicago, Paul Dashlell of Annapolis and
Bell of Pennsylvania. Of these, only two,
so far as I have been able to hear, namely,
Camp and Staggs, endeavored in meeting to put
such legislation on record as would open the
gameand their efforts were futile.
Regardless of public opinion, heedless of the
intelligent criticism of the press and of all foot
ball men really mindful of the game, defiant of
college presidents and faculty members alike,
this committee has conclusively proved Its en
tire unworthiness and should resign forthwith.
Friends of wholesome college sport want this
committee revisedand as speedily as may ~be.
HOW REDBEN WADDELL
DID A HUNTING GO
Philadelphia, Aug. 80.When the Athletics
were in training camp "Rube" did not come
back one day untU dusk Mack was worried.
and began to show It plainly, when his fears
were calmed by ttie appearance of the pitcher.
Waddell was right there with an explanation
that was a dream. He carried a shotgun and
game bag "as he entered. tbe hotel, and went
straight to his room. Soon he re-entered the
lobby and strode straight up to Mack a happy
smile spread all over his face as he held
out three fat quail
"Here, Connie, old boy," he said cheerfully,
"these are for you. Just look at me, covered
with mod and burrs. Had an awful time get
ting tbe tolrds, tramped twenty miles tor halt
a dozen. I was thinking of you all the time.
In fact, old man, that's why I went after 'em.
I knew you liked quail. Yon haven't been look
ing very well lately, and they'll do yon good."
Connie looked at the big ^fellow a minute.
He,knew the Rube was laying on to escape
a calling down for skipping the day's practice,
but what could he say under the circumstances?
He started to reply, but Waddell cut him off.
"Oh, that's all right, Connie don't mention
'it, I'll do It again for yon any time."
And Mack was only able to bow his thanks
and conceal a smile behind his hand.
