Last evening marked fourteen meet
ings in the tournament. The play has
been sharp and close throughout, and
every team, save possibly the Press

The record is wonderfully close. The
Kegels seem to be playing somewhat
the strongest, as they have made the
highest scores thus far, and have lost
but one game, and that by but one pin.
The series started Thursday, Feb.. 11,
between the Kegels and the Capitol

THIS WEEK'S SCHEDULE.
The Teams So Close That the Re
sult Is Out of Sight.
Eleven games are on the card for this
*eek, and they bring giants against
iants. Next Saturday night it will be
much easier to make a prediction of the
ending, but now it is beyond the power
of any one less than a necromancer.
Wednesday evening will afford oho of
the most thrilling battles of the en
tire series. It will signal a col
lision between the mighty Kegels
and the swift Enterprise lads
at Amort's alleys. The latter has not
lost a game, and the other but one, and
the final victory may hinge upon this
one contact. The University boys and
the Humors are also in the race for the
prize. Neither has met with more than
a single defeat, and this week their per
centage promises to boom towards the
top notch. Ihe sturdy North Lights
and hardy Bismarcks have been in
rather hard luck tho past week. They
have suffered discouraging breaks and
6plits that would have appalled less
sturdy players. But their hearts are in
the right place and they will ren
der a good account of themselves
this week. They have already met
some of the stroneest aggregations in
the tourney, with varying success. And
the brilliant Nushkas— these are still an
unknown quantity. Their best bowlers
have of late been more assiduously de
voted to curling than to bowling, but
now that the ice is becoming unfit for
their favorite sport, the sachems will
develop tremendous speed on the bowl
ing alley,and well may their adversaries
look serious when they meet them.
The Capitol boys are truly stalwarts,
but they had the misfortune to meet
defeat at the hands of the great Kegels
and the busy Enterprise boys. The
latter was a surprise, and it was all
done on the last frame of the game.
The Capitols led at the roll of their last
ball by twenty-seven pins, and the last
Enterprise player had to make the bowl
of a life to win. But he won. He
knocked out thirty in the inning, and
was siiven a tumultuous ovation for the
feat. And now comes the Press
club. They are novijes in com
parison with the • others, but they
are made of the . right stuff,
and have plenty of courage to carry the
play to the end, even though they fail to
win a single game. When they have
had the experience of which the other
clubs can boast, the hustling Faber
manipulates will be ready to meet all
adversaries, and this tourney is just the
sort of experience they need to develop

NOT IN IT WITH NUSHKAS.
the Press Club Howlers Upset
With Ridiculous Ease.
The powerful sachems of the Nushka
tribe were rather cruel last evening.
They pounced upon the Press boys who,
in their youthful exuberance, were
merely lookinc for the amenities of the
game and not for the ascerbities— the
Nushkas pounced down upon these with
a relentless rush and administered an
unmerciful drubbing. The pencil push
ers are philosophers, though, and know
how to suffer crushing defeat without a
The dashing Nushkas started in rath
er timidly, it must be admitted, and
permitted the newspaper boys to score
five more pins in the first inning, but
this sort of thing would not be per
mitted to continue. The sachems
pulled themselves together, so to speak,
and the wooden spheres began to make
music that would delight the Glympian
rods, and in the second frame, while
[he Press club knocked out only 46, the
Nushkas. with a cheer, scored 70. And
10 the battle raged, the lead widening
with each succeeding inning until the
Sifference stood 106 pins, and thus the
history of the battle must go on record
md pass down to posterity.
Despite it was a bad beating, and one
would think that the Nushka braves
might have been more kind, the news
paper boys are unanimous in pronounc

KEGELS ARE VICTORS.
They Overturn the Bismarcks by
a Large Score.
It is quite a distance to Shade's park,
on West Seventh street, but this fact
did not prevent a large number of inter
ested spectators gathering last evening
to witness the game between the Kegel
and Bismarck clubs that was played on
the smooth surface of the bowling alley
there. The Bismarck men, however,
did not appear to be in condition, and
failed to keep up a uniformly good
score. They made a desperate effort, but
could not prevent the Kegels from
carrying off the victory with ninety
four" pins in their favor. The latter
club was as enthusiastic as ever. Weg
inan, of the Kegels, came within one of
tieing the score of 20G made by Kloster
man Friday night, and which is the
best individual record so far iv the con
test. Bach made the best score for the
Bismarks. It was 167, and plainly sig
nifies that thelprince's namesakes were
somewhat listless last night. The score
of the game last niirlu is as follows:

The Weekly Contest of the Press
The weekly game of the press bowl
ers, for the club's medals, occurred
right after the tournament contest.
The scores were much below toe aver
age. Chantlerdid not play his inning
out, as, suffering from a cold, he was
in no condition for bowling. Geiniiiel
was handicapped by a bruised leer, and
so he relinquished the medal to the
keeping of Col. Bobleter, who ran up
162 points. Wood made a very pretty
fight for the trophy, and secured 155
points. The booby prize was jointly
claimed by J. McGuire and D. W.
Meeker, who were accredited with 70
points each. The scores in full are:
Col. Bobleter 1(5'2 J. E. Gemmel 04
A. B. Wood 155 J.M. Hawks 92
H.M.Kimball 11l J. C. Chaee 79
M. Melady 104 D. W. Meeker 70
A. E. Chautler 95 J. McGuire 76
Dudley Finch, J. Sloan and seveial
other prominent citizens joined the
members iv their game, and afterwards
there were two very interesting "bat
tle" contests. The first "battle" was
generalled by Col. Bobleter and J. E.
Gemmel. The latter's side won. In
the second "battle" the competing
sides were in charge of A. B. Wood and
J. M. Hawks, and the latter's men were
never "in it."
THE WINDSOR TOURNEY.
Clausen and Wilder Yet Unbeaten
— Last Night's Games.
Interest in the Windsor amateur bill
iard tournament is now at white heat.
There have been twenty-five games
played, and there yet remain thirty
more games in the series. Konald won
a game last night from Stauffer by a
score of 100 to 87, and Bean defeated
Stauffer in a game of 100 to 88. The first
one was finished in 54 and the latter in
5G innings. Bean's highest run was 10,
Stauffer's 9, and Ronald's 8. J. Jansen
acted as marker of both games. The
games for Monday night are Ronald (85)
against Dr. Coon (55), and Ilardacre (85)
against Wilder (85). The present stand

THE I CRACKS DOWNED.
Company D Lays Out the Minnc
Company I, of Minneapolis, and Com
pany D, of St. Paul, crossed bats in a
game of indoor baseball at the armory
last night before a large gathering of
spectators. The match again resulted
in a victory for Company D with a score
6f 14 to 8. The team work
of Company I was especially
good and won much applause
and the home runs made by Tobin was
the feature of the game.
The teams were made up as follows:

and the quicker he awards the Minne-.
apolis franchise to either Morton or
llach the better for base ball in the
Western league. Mr. Bennett is not
pushing matters in St. Paul until he
knows which of the contestants is to
win in Minneapolis. It is stated that he
is very friendly to Morton, and that as
soon as th*e unfortunate row up the
river is settled they will work together
to some extent to make the national
game popular in the two cities.
The schedule of the Western league
is practically completed, but will not be
announced until some time in March.
The committee had the dates of most of i
the big race meetings before it, and
scheduled games so as not to conflict.
There will be no games in St. Paul and
Minneapolis from July 20 to Aug. 7,
but the two teams will probably, play j
together July 4. The opening games
will be played at Toledo. Columbus,
Indianapolis and Milwaukee about
April 20. Unless considerably changed,
the schedule will make provision for
no games in the Twin Cities until
about May 8. Instead of going away
for trips to New Orleans or Hot Springs,
the St. Paul and Minneapolis teams
will get in trim in the home gymna
siums and play a local championship
series, if the weather proves propitious,
between April 5 and 15.
Applications are not pouring in to
President Williams so rapidly as at first.
Several of the best players of the coun
try, outside of the big league, are still
holding out. hoping . that some sort of
high-priced lightning will strike them.
Probably, however, it will not be many
days before they make a break to get in
out of the rain. An example of the sal
utary influence the Western league
limit has had on salaries is shown by the
offer of "Kid" Baldwin to play for $1,000
this year with any club to which he
may be assigned. Had there been no
settlement of the baseball wars Baldwin
would be holding out for at least $2,000.
A good many of the players offering
themselves to Mr. Williams have been
asking too big salaries, however, and
he has been obliged to tell them that he
cannot make up his teams for $12,000
each unless they cut the amounts
squarely in two. Many, of course, will
do this rather than take, chances with
the minor leagues and many others will
wish they had later on. It is stated the
twelve-club league has about seventy
players on its hands it is willing to turn
over to the Western. -V
A grood point has been brought out
recently in the discussion of the new
plan of drawing for teams. It is believed
that a paiustakiner committee of selec
tion can name eight teams which will
be somewhere near equal in strength;
but how will material for captains be
distributed? Not every ball player
who can play his position well can cap
tain a team. If great care is not taken
two or three teams will have three or
four men each capable of acting as cap
tain, and four or five others will have
splendid teams, but nobody to direct
A curious difficulty has broken out re
garding players. At the Indianapolis
meeting the big league decided that,, all
previous agreements with minor leagues
had been wiped out, and that the play
ers of the old Western leatrue were free
to sign where they pleased. So Chicago
grabbed up Dungan H who was under
contract to Kansas City; Pittsburg
seized Elmer Smith, and several other
players were picked up. The Western
league was disposed at first to grow
warm and kick over traces, but thought
better of the matter and did the next
. best thing in sight It declared that, if
all agreements were at an end, the
leagues under it in the grades of protec
tion had no right to their players either.-
Acting on this Milwaukee seized George
Nicol, from Rockford, and other clubs
picked up the players they wanted.
Some of these men, Nicol for example,
had signed contracts and accepted ad
vance money from the clubs of the llli
nois-lowa league. This was explained
to the Western, hut it turned a deaf ear
to the protest. In the meantime the
Illinois-lowa league - doesn't know
whether it has any players that it can
Crooks and Wilmot are still in St.
Paul, and neither of them is exactly
sure where he will play. Crooks is
scheduled to go to St. Louis, but he and
Yon der Abe have not yet agreed on
the matter of salary. Wilmot is booked
for Chicago, but he is very anxious to
get out from under the wing of Grandpa
Anson, and recent advices indicate that
the latter is willing that the "St. Paulite
shall go elsewhere if he can get a good
trade out of him.
L. C. Krauthoff, of Kansas City, who
will represent the Western league at the
meeting of the committee to formulate a
new national agreement which meets in
New York, has drafted a new agree
ment, which will doubtless be adopted,
as it is known to meet the ideas of a
majority of the committee. By Mr.
Krauthoffs plan the system o"f the
stronger leagues drawing on the weak
er parties for players during the season
will be abolished, and the price paid for
protection by the minor organizations
will be nominal.
IT WILL BE NO GO.
Hart Will Not Accept the Louis
ville Club's Latest Offer.
Louisville, Ky., Feb. 20.— di
rectors of the Louisville club met to
night and decided that under no cir
cumstances would they consent . to the
release of Tom Blown. They further
decided to submit a proposition to Chi
cago for the exchange of Fred Pfeffer.
This they would not make public, but it
is known to be Browning and Canavan.
Chicago, Feb. 20.— President James
A. Hart, ot the Chicago club, was seen
last night regarding the action of the
Louisville directors. He said: ".We
have given the Louis our ultima
tum and will not consider any proposi
tion that does not include Wilmot in the
deal. His relations with the Chicago
club are similar to Pfeffer's and he
should receive the same consideration.
Ourplayers have been ordered to report
at Hot Springs •' for ■ practice in two
weeks, and we expect Pfeffer and Wil
mot on hand. If our proposition to the'
Louisvilles remains in its present shape
, until then I will declare all negotiations
i off. 1 think our offer is very liberal and
in the interest of harmony. The report
that the Chicagos would trade Pfeffer
for Brown is untrue. Such a deal would
filace us in a bad way. We would have
our outfielders besides Murphy, our
new catcher, who is also a fielder, ami
be without a second baseman.''
SHAW'S BIG SCHEME.
His Chicago Commission Business
About to Blossom.
Ciiicaoo, Feb. 20.— Frank N. Shaw's
big pool-soiling scheme, or, as it will be
called, "commission busiuess," is about
to blossom. Mr. Shaw, who is secretary
of the Twin City Jockey club and is
known as a high roller in every betting
ring in the country, particularly in the
West, has been hatching it ever since
the close of the racing season in Chica
go. Knowing that the authorities
here would not tolerate out-and
out book making except at a race
track, no matter how it was
disguised, he set about devising a plan
whereby he might take advantage of the
big play that for want of a niore con
genial channel had been drifting to tin;
crap joints, except the little bit of It
that the few handbooks.being operated
on the quiet, could handle.
The nature of Mr. Shaw's business in
Chicago was on his recent visit an open
secret, but pending the completion of
his plans, which are quite elaborate, he
has seen fit to say nothing for publica
tion. Even now Ire is reticent on that
score, and it is not from him that the
facts have been obtained.
It is claimed for Mr. Shaw's scheme
that although it will be an evasion of
the spirit of the statute it will not, ac
cording to supposedly sound legal ad
vice and commercial usage, be a viola
tion of the law. It will entail, befote it
can go into operation, the expenditure
of an amount of money well up in the
hundreds of thousands, but that in no
object in the face of the glowing possi
bilities, provided the authorities can be
compelled to keep their hands off.
Private wires, leased from the Postal
or Western Union, or both, will connect
Mr. Shaw's "brokerage" office with the
tracks where the horses happen to be
running, and business will be trans
acted through agents on the ground.
The deals will partake as much as prac
ticable of the feature of stock specula
tion. Mr. Shaw may, for instance, pay
for the privilege of making a book at
Morris Park and conduct his operations
from this end, just as the Chicago stock
broker is a member of the New York
stock exchange. This would be hardly
necessary, however, as any bookmaker
operating in the ring at the track would
willingly take all the business sent in
by the Cnicago office.
The actual passage of mouey before
the race between the customer and the
quasi broker would not be necessary. If
the customer was not known to the
broker he might put up sufficient secur
ity before he commenced to play to
margin up his deal iv case the market
went the other way or the horse on
which he happened to take a flier came
in behind a couple of others. Of course
it would be necessary to post the odds
upon the blackboard, as is the custom in
old-fashioned pool rooms, but the rest
of the business could be conducted just
the same as a stock brokerage— and for
that matter the figures on the wall are
an indispeusible concomitant of a stock
Among others associated with Frank
Shaw iv the scheme is a member of the ,
St. Louis house of delegates named
James H. Townsencl. Mr. Townsend is
a man of means, but he owes his con
nection with Mr. Shaw in this deal to
his practical knowledge of telegraphy.
He is, or at least was a few days ago,
president of the Mound City Coupe and
Livery company, and was formerly
manager of the Baltimore & Ohio Tele
graph company's St. Louis office, hold
ing that position until the Baltimore &
Ohio consolidated with the Western!
Union. Mr. Townsend passed the early :
half of the present week in this city in 1
close consultation with Mr. Shaw, and
after he returned home it was given out
quietly that the scheme was a "go," >:
and that it would be in full swing as •
soon as the legitimate racing season
set in. ■•• - :]2BE3t£|?y ;:; -' :^* i ' .v ; ' i 7
BILLIARD CHAMPIONS. >/
Prospects for a Three-Night
New York, Feb. George Slosson
made a statement last night which was
designed to settle definitely the much
talked-of . proposition for a three-night
match between Champion Schaefer and
himself. It was suggested by. an inter
view telegraphed from Chicago. Slos
son again declared that lie had never
made any proposition for a three-night
match to the champion. "The only
way 1 will play Schaefer three nights,"
Slosson said, "is that each night's play
shall count as a distinct and separate
game, the winner of two to take the
money. These games are to be 800
points each, and the man who gets 800
first each night is to be declared winner
of that particular game."
To make this as definite as possible
concerning the championship game,
Slosson said that he would play the
winner of the Schaefer-I yes came either
in this city or Chicago. He would allow
the winner $250 expenses to play here,
accept the same money to go to Chicago
and play. Slosson laughed at the sug
gestion . of $75 for expenses, offered by
Schaefer to play him in Chicago.
"That's the most niggardly ■ offer 1
ever heard, of," he exclaimed. . "If
Schaeffer should lose," Slosson added,
'•I am willing to play him a side match
in New York for $500 a side, but only on
condition that I get a match with Ives
fur the championship in the meantime.
This is the sum and substance of what
t I am willing to do. and I want it under
stood that these offers do not remain
open until the Schaefer-I yes match is
decided. They must be acted upon at
once or 1 will withdraw them."
"What Is the matter with Schaefer,
anyhow?" t>aid Slosson in conclusion.
"Why don't he come out like a man
about the championship? He acts like
a coward who is afraid to try conclu
sions where his laurels are endangered.
He got $2,500 when he won the Lenox •
Lyceum match. He could make as
much again by playing with me. Why
doesn't he offer to play a man if he is so
confident he has got a cinch when he
A billiard enthusiast said last night,
apropos to this, that Schaefer was
actually afraid to play Slosson again.
"There is a general belief," said he,
"that Slosson is the steadier player any
how and that it was only by luck that
Schaefer won the Lyceum match." It
is this kind of talk that intur iates the i

Scraps of Sport.
The playing off of the ties for the Merriam
and Hinkel medals by the curling clubs pro
vided excellent sport on Raspberry Island
Thursday evening. The attendance of ladies
and gentlemen were very gratifying, and the
play witnessed was very good. It may be
said that the bent rinks of the club were en
gaged, and, in the contest for the Merriam
medal, the play was especially exciting. At
the end of nineteen ends the score stood 16
each for the Lorrimer-McCulloch rinks. The
twentieth end gave McCulloeh 3 points, and.
amid wild enthusiasm, they were presented
with the medals.
It is hardly fair that the newspapers gen
erally should share in the glory of the work
accomplished by the Press club in the bowl-
Ing tournament. Credit should be given to
those to whom it belongs, and it has Decn
suggested that the team should be known as .
representing the Dispatch. Four out of the
five members are Dispatch men. ;
The Gladstone club of Providence, .lt. 1.,
offers Austin Gibbons a purse of $000 if he
can defeat Jack Falvey, the New England
light weight, in fifteen rounds. It also offers

Godfrey and Joe Choynskl .
• Joe Acton, of San Francisco, and D. S. Mc-
Leod, of British Columbia, will wrestle

the gate receipts at San Francisco between
March 5 and 10.
The Press billiard tournament is dragging
along. There were only seven games played
the past week, and unless the committee in
charge push the tournament more vigorously
it will certainly end in a fiasco.
