Johnson was here to attend another
variety of trials -with -which he is en
tertaining the public these days. This
time it -was neither an auto ' speeding
arrest nor an attachment of baggage.
The manager of the'Alhambra theater
claimed to have a verbal contract -with
the black boy for him to appear dur
ing the present -week. As Johnson had
other theatrical" and social engage
ments he failed to appear at the Alham
bra. The manager appealed to Judge
"Windes for a temporary injunction re
straining the negro from appearing in
any other theater. Judge Petit refused
to see it in the same light -when the
permanent injunction came before him.
He said that the complainants had
failed to show sufficient reason why
Johnson could not appear in any other
theater but the Alhambra and the
fighter was released.

Engraver, a long shot, won -the sixth
race Tuesday at the Mexican track.
Engraver opened at 10 to 1, was boost
ed to 25 to 1 and closed there. Little
play was made on this horse for Gun
stan was a hot tip and heavily played
by the crowd. Gunstan opened at a
high price but was backed down to a
5 to 2 offering at post time and was
played strong at this figure. So
strong was the hunch on this horse
that there was little scattered play on
the other horses and Engraver, a good
thing at 25 to 1, was practically ne
glected in the betting, few having any
money on the long shot. This is the
second time such a coup has been pulled
off at the meeting to the great advan
tage of the bookies.
A small crowd attended the races In
spite of the fact that it was free day
for women again. Cold and uncomfort
able in the grandstand, watching the
ponies run was not a particularly
pleasant sport Tuesday. It was also a
cold day for the top price jockeys. None

able to pull over anything yesterday
with the exception of Benscoten, who
rode Sevenfull to a winning in the fifth
race. Orbicular, the horse, that won
the El Paso Fair handicap, was the
winner in the over night handicap for
threeyearolds and up. He was ridden
by Molesworth and finished first ahead

Is at the Top of the League
Among Texas Y. M. C.
Thursday night El Paso will again be
called upon to defend Its title to the
topmost position In the Texas telegraph
ic bowling tournament. The team which
represents the El Paso Y. M. C. A. is
now the only team having a perfect
score. The local five men team stands
at the top of the list with a 1000 per
cent chalked up against it. Six other
teams in the 10 team tournament have a
standing of 750 percent, while the re
maining three have three ciphers to show
how they stand In the list.
The El Paso team has played three
games and won each of them. Ennls,
Waco and Houston have each been de
feated by telegraph when playing with
the El Paso five. Houston is the strong
est opposition the local team has for
the title of the best bowling team in
the Texas Y. 31. C. A. and the deciding
games will probably be played between
these two teams. Thursday evening El

Cincinnati, O.. Jan. o. An umpire
trust. Can you beat it?
From the winter quarters of the loud
mouthed" boys who handle tlio indicators
in the National league comes the rumor
that there is to be an umpire's trust
and a subsequent strike. Klem, RIger
and Hank O'Day are said to be the
boosters of the trust. These men claim
that they are not being paid enough
real money to take their lives in their
hands each day of the baseball season
and go forth and defy the enemy to
said enemy's face.
Tl.ore is a bare possibility that the
elect 'on of Tom Lynch as president of
the National league and his inaugural
address in defence of the umpires had
something to do with the demand of
these same referees that they be paid
more money. It is thought that presi
dent Tom will be able to adjust matters
without any real blood being shed.
