The United States Golf ass'n has
agreed to give Francis Ouimet and
two other members of the Woodland
(Mass.) Golf club; branded as pro
fessionals, a hearing and a chance
to defend themselves. Ouimet was
declared a professional because he is
selling golf supplies.
Several golfers throughout the
country who are engaged in sporting
goods houses will be eagerly watch
ing for a final decision from the na
tional body. The amateur line must
be drawn somewhere, of course, hut
it does not seem that it should be ap
plied to sporting- goods salesmen.
The Western Golf ass'n is somewhat
up in the air and local golfers, are of
the opinion that-the governing body
of -this section of the country has' not
so far followed the lead of the U. S.
G. A. It is time the situation -was
clarified, so golfers of all sections of
the country will know where they
stand.
If the rule applies to salesmen it
seems reasonable to apply it to well
known golfers who are writing for
the papers and magazines. When a
golfer through a newspaper or mag
azine gives some instruction as to
how the game should be played he is.
under a strict interpretation of the
rules, somewhat of a pro. That is,
if he is paid for his dope.
Now thaj the U. S. G. A. has start
ed, it must continue to the limit or
let Ouimet play as an amateur.

be appointed a special ass't state's -att'y,
in order that he may prosecute
the cases against cabaret owners
started by his organization.. That
is, if a tip given out at the City Hall '
is true. . .
The cases against the Schiller,
Elite, Delmar, Perfecto and Reising
'cafes were called,before Judge Dolan
yesterday and continued until May
19.
It isald that the City Hall crowd
are very anxious that Hoyne take up
the work of presecutiag the cases,
so as to . save the city administra-

Chief Healey said, after a talk"
with Capt Healy and Capt. O'Brien,
that he believed the district around
31st and Cottage Grove av. would be"
improved.
Corporation Counsel Etteteon took
a wallop at the liquor business yes
terday when lie gave out an opinion
that the city could not issue saloon
or wholesale liquor licenses to places
within the four-mile Bmit of -tb.'
Northwestern university. The limit
runs south to Devoft av.
Twenty-nine saloons and sixteen v
wholesale houses are hit by this;
opinion, it is probable that ail these
may lose their licenses.
