FIELD DAY FOB
Voted Back Salary and Offered
a $4,000 Job by the
Minneapolis interest in the annual
meeting of the American association
at Chicago, yesterday, centered solely
in the final disposition of the Kelley
case. Prom this morning's news it
would appear that Joe and Mike Cantil
lon have told the anti-Kelleyites of the
organization to keep hands off that
they -were going to settle the Kelley
case themselves. They started to do
this, when Joe Cantillon wired Mike
Kelley today an offer of $4,000 per
annum to look after the Cantillon in
terests at Des Moines in the Western
Kelley has the offer under considera
tion, and expects to talk over the mat
ter with Josephus and Michael when
they arrive here later in the week. The
Cantillons declare that Kelley is not
blacklisted by the recent action of the
association, and that they will hire him
and show that he is not on the
list. This looks like a big dig in the
eye of Ban Johnson by the Cantillons,
the Banlet having declared that Kelley
was virtually out of organized base
ball. If the Cantillons intended it as
such a slap in the eye, it will add
"reatly to their popularity among the
'inneapolis baseball following.
Salary to Be Paid.
The association also ordered the pay
ing of the $1,000 back salary due
Michael for his services in the Gus
Koch coop beneath the grand stand at
the close of last year. Taken alto
gether it was something of a field day
Love and harmony was smeared all
around. According" to the veracious
cbroniclings of the reporters two bot
tles of $8 wine set the meeting in such
a good humor that it voted life fran
chises, gave Milwaukee Joe O'Brien a
boost in salary and a three-year lease,
named Papa Bryce a director, called
Mike Cantillon vice president of the
circuit, and put him with Tebeau and
Bryce on the schedule committee. Had
another bottle been opened, it is proba
ble that they would have voted the

Stephen Kane the queen of May I
must have been a gorgeous affair with
the lamb-like Watkins thrusting his
head into the mouths of the lions, Len
non and Havenor. About the only one
who chdn 't get anything, to judge from
the reports, was Bill Armourperhaps
he cut in on the $8 wealthy water.
It was decided to stick to the 154are
am schedule and to start the monkey
proceedings on April 17, and close
on Sept. 16, if all of the money is in
the box office by that time. The play
ing of exhibition games during the
championship season is to be prohibited
by one of the 999,999 bylaws of the or
ganization. That was about all that
Joe and Mike Cantillon will arrive
in Minneapolis the latter part of the
week and will probably be ready to an
nounce their plans for tho season. Their
action in behalf of Kelley, if they
have gone thru with it, and it looks
as tho they had. has been one of the
most opportune movements of their
baseball careers. I will disarm all of
the hostility which Kelley's friends
have treasured up against the local
club and will put the Cantillons "in
right" with local fans. I will not,
however, lessen, in any degree, the feel
ing against the men who have hounded
Kelley for just exactly one vear. The
Cantillons appear to have been trottine
squarely all of the tirae, while prof ess
lug friendship for Keffev. The rest of
the bunch on the circuit cut little ice.
In addition to re-electing O'Brien for
three years, his duties have been in
creased to cover the positions of secre
tary and treasurer.
It was decided to have O'Brien ad
vertise for bids for the official balls
iiud instruct him to contract for next
year's supply, according to his ownheld
judgment, after the bids were received.
I was generally understood among the
delegates that this was the last chap
ter in the famous fight between the
advocates of the Reach and "Victor ball.
ATHOS FAILED AT
Harry Harris, known as Athos, the
Frenqh champion wrestler, failed to
throw three men in a handicap horse
back wrestling match at the Dewey
theater, Saturday, and as a result for-,
feited $50. Athos introduced the
horseback game into this city and of
fered to throw any three men in thirty
minutes. A. H. Felkey, Carl Mattsson
and' Tommy Russell accepted, and altho
new to the game put up spirited fights.
Russell was thrown in three minutes,
but Felkey, who was second man, gave
the champion a hard rub and nearly
beat him at his own game. After
nineteen minutes both men went off the
horses, which were rearing in fright,
and according to the rules should
wrestle again. Athos refused, how
ever, and Carl Mattsson went on.
Mattsson also put up a good fight and
repeated Felkey's act, taking Athos
with him when he fell.
There still remained two minutes for
the champion to finish his match, but
he refused' to go on again.

Biley told the editor his paper could

He is. a neighbor of Robert Emslie,

Graney is 20 years old. He attracted
much attention in the past two seasons
in Canada and around Buffalo, N. Y.,
by his masterly box work with minor
league teams. He is said to have ter
rific speed for a left-hander and con
trol that ia well-nigh perfect. His

Graney. Not until today, however, did
the Chicago club have the contract of
Graney to tuck safely away: for 1907.
Graney has defeated some of the
strongest teams in the eastern league
