A. W."Fkiese, Treasurer.
The above is a joke. The Milwaukee
club officials are having their laugh
now. The Western association will
laugh Monday. To-morrow the West
ern Base Ball association will meet in
Minneapolis. The Milwaukee Base Ball
club will be expelled, unceremoniously.
"Of that there is no manner of doubt;
no probable, possible shadow of doubt:
no possible doubt whatever." The
management of the Milwaukee club has <
been altogether too coquettish. It has j
worn its heart upon its sleeve so long ;
that the daws have pecked several I
large, jagged-edged holes in it. !
The other Western association clubs are !
wearied of associating with a pander.
The situation is figured out this way by j
Minneapolis base ball experts, on the !
basis of press dispatches from Milwau- j
kee and other cities.
President Gillette thought he had ■
taken Cincinnati's place in the Ameri
can association. Acting on that suppo
sition lie telegraphed his manager to
take the train for St. Louis. Then Yon

Milwaukee Is Not In, antl May Be
Milwaukee, Aug. 15. — President
Gillette returned from Louisville yes
terday afternoon, and about 4 o'clock
received a telegram announcing that
the offer for the Cincinnnti franchise
had been accepted, and the local team
was to have left for St. Louis last night
to play the schedule game in place of
! Cincinnati to-day. After Manager Cosh
man had taken his team to the depot
I and was purchasing tickets to St. Louis.
! a telegram was received ordering them
' not to come. Columbus, or, more prop-
I erly, President Kramer, had registered
lan objection to the admission of
' Milwaukee, notwithstanding that
the consent of five clubs in
I the association had been obtained
I for the transfer of the Cincinnati
j franchise. The team was held, but
• President Gillette boarded the train for
i ; St. Louis forthwith. Minneapolis had
' been notified of Milwaukee's with
drawal from the Western association
and cannot reach the city for games to
i day and to-morrow, even If there was a
• desire to do so. The aim of the Amer

and the locals are in a perplexity to
know whether or not they have played

'' Milwaukee people have been playing
j novices with veterans in the wildcat
St. Louis, Aug. 15. -President 11. E.
Gillette, of the Milwaukee club, arrived
in St. Louis this morning. President
Yon Der Ahe and Mr. Gillette had a
consultation about the franchise which
the latter is trying to secure in the
American association. Mr. Yon Der
Ahe assured the Milwaukee magnate
that his city would be represented in
the association, taking Louisville's
place, as that club is for sale. Mr.
Gillette will know positively about the
Louisville matter this evening or to
Louisville, Ky.. Aug. 15.— The pool
formed by stockholders of the Louis
ville Base Ball club to secure, the
retention in this city, to-day added
enough stock to control the club.
The stock is placed in the hands
of Attorney Phelps as trustee. Parsons
still claims valid the agreement made
by several who are in the pool to sell at
a fixed price. With those shares he
claims controlling interest. The dis
pute may go to the court for settlement.
St. Louis, Aug. 15.— King Kelly and
the Cincinnati aggregation reached this
city this morning, and will play the first
game of the last series with the Browns
this afternoon. President Yon der Ahe
was seen by an Associated Press reporter
at noon, and when questioned as to the
report that the Cincinnati club would
be transferred to Milwaukee, said:
"Not a bit of it: no sir, the Cincinnati
club will just stay where it is. This is
official." As President Yon der Ahe
holds a controlling interest in the Pork
opolis club, it is very likely that his
word will go.

BEATEN BY A BAD BOAT.
Why the Minnesota Four Was Con-
queretl at Winnipeg.
If there were an excuse for the lack ,
of man's prowess, then cowardice would
be made justifiable always. The rea
sons of defeat are as many and varied
as the causes of successful effect. The
former are seldom considered in the
heat of events by those who presume to
digest them, while the latter are picked
and pryed by those who would fathom
the methods of good fortune, ln
sports of a physical nature, more
than in any other exercise, the
excuse for defeat finds little sympathy
with the observing multitude. Unbiased
competence alone can fairly discern and
judge of one man's conduct, resulting
successfully to himself, and another's
who miscarries ignominiously. Tiie ar
dent "good-bye" wiiich the GLOBE ex
tended to the scullers of the Minnesota
Boat club, when, a few weeks ago, they
left for Northern fields of conquest, was
given with the hope that Minnesota's
oarsmen would acquit themselves nobly.
Judging the men from a high standard
of physical excellence, there seemed no
possible flaw in the personnel and
equipment of the crew which left for
Winnipeg waters. It was known' that
tliev were the lightest crew in the Win
nipeg and Minnesota regatta. At home
it was J also known by near associates
and fellow oarsmen that the Minnesota's
four-oared shell weighed 138 pounds,
and that this weight was fifty-five
pounds over the weight of cedar racing
boats. It was this disparity which was
cogitated in the club room for weeks,
by those who said little but thought a
deal. - The record the crew made on the
club course was the fastest time ever
made on the Mississippi, and eighteen
seconds faster than that of the crack
senior crew of the club which ou trowed
all opponents in 1883. It was this grand,
but false, success on the river which led
the executives to venture off, handi
capped by fifty-five pounds of rafting.
In Winnipeg the Minnesota boys
were picked as winners anywhere in the
world. No idea was entertained that
they came anchored in a tub. Several
St. Paul gentlemen accompanied the
crew to Winnipeg. When the specula
tion began the Canadian fellows offered
$1,000 against $800 that they, the Win
nipegs, would beat the Minnesotas. To
the Lurlines they turned a disregard! ul
look and dubbed them "not in it.'' The
! St. Paul contingent quieklv covered
! the Canadian money and with nearly
' $5,000 upon their skill and courage the
j cherry and white men touched the line,
I ready for the fray. Be assured the
i Canuucks were on hand also. . And
just make a note of it that Lurline
color waved defiantly with the least or
best of them. The lied river course is
an abominable water. The start is but
a quarter mile cross country from the
finish, the course lying about a point of
land and forming a horseshoe. Long
experience and lopsidedness alone could
teach a man to row such a circular
course to advantage. The inside posi
tion is eleven lengths shorter than the
next position. The Lnrlines had the in
side, Minnesota next and W'innipegs
out-water. The Winnipegs and Minne
sotas. upon whom all the gold had been'
plunked, were lying in wait to kill each
other in the first mile. A wonderful
speed was begun, Minnesota leading,
followed close by Winnipeg— Lurlines
out at sea. At the mile buoy the Win
nipeg collapsed- rowed to sickness.
Minnesota, then leading by three
lengths, also reeled, and so the two dead
and sorry crews paddled on in a ultiful
chaos. Those who witnessed it say it
was heartrending to see the palsied
struggle of the limp oarsmen. The
spine and speed thus out of the Win- •
nipegs and Minnesotas, the Lurlines
kept a steady swing home and got there
just in time to show their stern to Min
nesota—Winnipegs struggling behind.
When the race was over and the ex
citement subsided, the Winnipegs
cheered the Minnesotas and in many
manly ways acknowledged their speed
and pluck. * They discovered, and for
the first time appreciated, that the Min
nesotas were sadly handicapped in their
boat. All reasonable views will give
this condition its place. There is no

crew in the heaviest boat the faster.
Nettleton. who had returned, joined
Brown at the last moment, and together
they won every race they entered.
When the Minnesotas returned to St.
Paul they met with the heartiest sup
port for their effort, for the time they
made, notwithstanding defeat, was 8:13.
Then their heads were turned toward
Detroit where the Northwestern re
gatta was to be rowed. Preparations
were going on for another start, when a
mishap to their shell necessitated re
pairs which made it still heavier and
knocked Cue last beam of hope from
under their ambition. The inevitble
was accepted and a ready decision kept
them at home— and here they are, with
hard muscles, but harder hearts.
The report that the Lurlines had no
organized junior crew, and that at Win
nipeg they created one for the occasion
suddenly and without training, is a fab
rication of the veriest sort. Ttie Lur
lines have a junior crew which is much
faster than its senior crew. Both crews
are well organized, and are a fine lot of
oarsmen, able and worthy to cope with
the best of them.
It is now proposed to hold a regatta
on Lake Minnetonka. the same to be
held under the auspices of the Minne
sota and Lurline clubs and the manage
ment of the Lake Park hotel. While
the date has not as yet been fixed, the
indications are that the event will occur
eariv in September, lt is on this occa
sion" that the Lurline and Minnesota
juniors may meet each other again and
do battle as become them.
The annual picnic of the Minnesotas
will be held on Labor day, and the ab
original proclivities of the participants
may then enjoy full vent at the expense
of oarsmen who have this season upset

Joe King Makes a Hundred Yards
in 94 5 Seconds.
Joe King, of St. Paul, is the king of
the amateur sprinters in the Northwest.
The championship was settled yester
day at Kittsoudaie. There had been
some question about the record he made
at the high school sports, last spring,
and A. 0. Newell, of Faribault, chal
lenged him to run for the Northwestern
amateur championship medal. This
led to yesterday's meeting of these two
candidates. There was a gathering 01
something like 200 admirers of gentle
manly sports. Four timekeepers were
] selected, so that there should be no dis
j pute afterward of the time in which the
I 100 yards were run. They were J.
Woodmansee, James Carr, A. Andrews
and William Prester. The judges were
Dan W. Chamberlain, G. W. Penney
and T. Sanders, while R. L. Weston of
ficiated aa starter. The latter is the
superintendent of the Y. M. C. A. gym
nasium. ...,.;.,.-..« ;^-.A,
The start was made at the pistol shot.
At the flash Newell sprung to the front,
and with a mighty effort lie. kept it
for upwards of seventy-five yards.
It was a rattling pace, but
King was coming meanwhile with just
a little better speed, and he gained the
coign of vantage and won at the scratch
by a foot and a half. It was the great
est performance ever witnessed among
amateurs in the Northwest. The world's
amateur record was equalled. 0 4-5 sec

leaves no ground for doubt concerning

There jvill be a game of ball this aft
ernoon at Spring park. Lake Minne

Minneapolis, and the Wilmots, of St.
Paul, for a purse of $50. The Wilmots
have played many games this season
without losing a single one. As the
season is drawing to a close, they have
decided to cancel all their outside
games for the future in order to show
the Picketts why they claim the cham

To Occur in a Hall.
The Moth-Lindeman catch-as-catch
can wrestling match will have to come
off in some hall. It was impossible to
get the Olympic, theater ready for the
event. This house is undergoing its
annual summer renovation and re
pairs, and is all torn up. An
extra force of workmen and art
ists are working night and day
to get it ready for the opening of the
season, which will occur there with an
excellent vaudeville company one week
from to-morrow night. Hence, it is
possible the wrestling match will be
transferred to Minneapolis. Pugilism
can scarcely be expected, since the
state militia will be called out with a
sheriff's posse to prevent it. and the
more vigorous sports must be confined
to wrestling. Both Moth and Linde
man are of the robust gladiator sort and
a great evening's sport is certain next
Saturday night, either In St. Paul or
