WIXTER TALK OF EXPERT FAXS.
Shows That Every Team in the
World AVill "I.c>h<l the League"
When the Western league magnates
returned from the Chicago meeting
they were quite elated over their ap
parent success in turning down the
schemes of that eminent intriguer,
John T. Brush. Now, however, a .sus
picion has arisen in some quarters that
they were taken in on a gold brick
deal. Deacon Ellis, after piteously
pleading for a four years' franchise,
turned around twice in the sunlight
and sold out to Bob Leadley and Hub
Glenalvin, both old managers whose
capital was supposed to be largely
Bnow balls. The vertigo that has seized
the other magnates in the league is
due to the fact that they suspect that
Brush may be furnishing the capital
which is behind Bobby Glenalvin and
Since Toledo has been barred from
the Western league an effort is being
made to form a new organization. The
scheme now is to reorganize the Inter
state league with a circuit made up
of teams in the following places: To
ledo, Saginaw, Bay City, Wheeling,
Youngstown, Dayton, Fort Wayne and
Jack O'Connor, catcher of the Cleve
land base ball team; "Tommy Courtney,
who has some reputation as a ball
tosser, and John Sweney, Jim Cronin's
bartender, are sadder but wiser men,
says a St. Louis dispatch. According
to the story told the police by the trio,
they were having "a nice social time"
in Cronin's saloon early yesterday
morning. While they were in the midst
of a friendly chat a stranger entered.
He had long hair, delicate features and
an effeminate voice.
"Get on to the dude." said one of
the ball players, sotto voice. While
Sweeny was mixing the newcomer's
drink the ball players enjoyed them
selves. "Hasn't he a pretty form?"
"Look at its curves," said the other.
"Gentlemen, are you referring to
me?" mildly asked the dude.
"There's no one else like you around,"
"Well, I think you a pack of scoun
drels," said the stranger.
That precipitated trouble. Sweeny
dropped like a log when the dude hit
him, and O'Connor and Courtney took
a hand, but every time they reached
for the slim stranger the latter landed.
"This is too one-sided," he remarked,
as he coolly walked out of the salo n,
leaving three men lying on the floor.

A WOMEN'S WHTST LEAGUE.
Philadelphia has recently been the
scene of a notable whist meeting and
tournament. Eleven teams of four,
composed of women whist players, en
graged in a tournament for trophies
offered by Mrs. T. H. Andrews, of Phil
j adelphia. It is now almost certain
that the result of this meeting will be
the organization of a Women's Whist
league. The following resolution was
unanimously adopted at the meeting:
Resolved, That the contestants in the
! Women's tournament held at No. 1110 Spruce
I 'street, Philadelphia, Nov. 11, 12 and 13, 1896,
i heartily approve of the formation of a
Women's Whist league, and for the accom
plishment of that object call upon the women
! whist players of America to organize whist
1 clubs and send representatives from such
dubs to a meeting to be held for the pur
• pose of league organization. That Mrs. T. H.
i Andrews be requested to act as chairman of
a committee of five, she to appoint the other
four: the duties of said committee to be to
select the time and place for such a meeting
and issue a call for the same.
All whist papers are respectfully re
quested to give due prominence to this
action in order that it may be called
to the attention of women all over the
country. In due course Mrs. Andrews
j will issue the call. We understand
; that the sentiment of the women at the
recent meeting very much favored Put
in-Bay at the time of the A. W. L.
congress. The final decision will not
be reached, however, until all sections
have expressed their views.
All women interested should commu
nicate with Mrs. T. H. Andrews, No.

EAST SHOULD TRUMP.
The following question is asked by
one of the prominent whist players of
West Superior, Wis. : East holds the
following hand: Spades, 4; hearts, J.,
10, 8, 4, 3, 2; clubs, A., 3; diamonds,
Q., J., 10, 4, s^x of clubs turned, East
to lead. The play was as follows:
N. E. S. W.
1. Bh 4h , *5c Kh
2. Kd 4d Ad *4c
3. 2s 4s 9s *As
4. 7s Js
The question Is: What should East play
here, and why?
It is clear that South has not more than
two trumps left; that he has seven diamonds
and the king of spades. If he has exactly
two trumps left, he has a king of spades
alone; this is the most probable distribution
of the cards, and East should therefore trump
at trick four. A consideration of the prob
able contents of the West and North hands
confirms this conclusion and is interesting as
a lesson in whist perception. West can have
but one more heart, the ace, and we should
not credit him with this, for had he held it
it is probable that he would have led trumps
at trick three, to exhaust South; instead of
this course, he opened his spade suit, and
this fairly compels the conclusion that he is
ready to overtrump South should the heart
suit be led again. We will, therefore, give
North an original holding of six hearts with
cornea to riding a bicycle. She can wheel her
way over the roughest roads and seldom
gets weary. Miss Yates is a resident of Oak
land, Cal., where she can be seen riding al
most any day. She has given a number of ex
hibitions in the state, and stands ready to
ride any man of her age, as well as any
the ace, queer. As to the spade suit we
think that West must have held at least seven
for, with but five or six, at least six trumps
must be placed with him. and a trump lead
after taking the force would have been his
play. We think it more reasonable to allow
him seven spades rather than eight, and so
count his hand as one heart, seven spades
and five trumps. North held six hearts, one
diamond, three spades and three trumps. (Of
course North may have one less spade and
one more trump, but the drop seems to favor
our placing of the spade euit.)
West should, in our opinion, play the three
of trumps at trick four. If the king of spades
falls, he should lead the ace of trumps at
trick five. He should then lead a heart for
his partner to trump; if West holds the best
trump, his spade suit is made by leading
it; perhaps he can draw all the trumps, but
if not. he can force the adverse trump with a
spade and re-enter with his last trump, if
West does not hold the best trump he can
use his Judgment us to whether to lead a
trump or play to force; the worst that can
happen is the making of two heart tricks
by North. Any other line of play by East
after trumping at trick four would seem less
promising; the lead of diamonds insures at
least two tricks for North and South by
ruffing, and the lead of a heart before lead
ing ace of trumps might ruin West's hand
by subjecting it to another force afterwards.
We do not overlook the possibility of a gain
by trumping with ace and leading the trey.
This coup would work well if West's trumpe
proved to be of the right size, but there are
few situations where the play would gain
over trumping with the trey, and there
is danger of a loss.
HAMILTON DEFEATS BOSTON DUPLI

Both teams played much the same sys- I
tern. The lead of the ten meant queen, jack; j
they both opened "top of nothing," and both :
at times, when the situation demanded it, !
opened a short suit.
The following summary shows the way the
deals were opened:

the same card (in each case the conventional
play) was led at both tables. The total score
on these deals was 11-8 in favor of Hamilton.

Trick 2— The old ten lead. The information
m C< ? nveys of Borne use here to East
thitX 3 7 E t! t "\ akes a short lead = he sees
that , th . e . hear t suit is solid, and he is quite
comfortable about the spades; the ace of
diamonds is a good re-entry. The trump
lead is, we think, sound. West should of
course, not play the queen, as his partner
is either leading his highest trump, in which
eaae a finesse is almost obligatory or else
tast has A. K. J., and the eight' will win.
West s correct play to show four trumps is
an interesting question. The play of ' the
eight and, if it wins, the return of the que°u
ought to show the ten, nine.
Trick 4— Another ten lead. Cavendish now
advise* the lead of the nine from X, J, 10 3
but we prefer the ten so as to allow the
nine lead to indicate ace, queen, ten or ace
JjJ^K. 01 " 111 place * aII th 9 hi 8 h trumps
with East, and plays ace. At one tnble
Nortn passed and Souths jack won. In
that case South should lead his diamond
and, if the trump is led again, North makes
two diamond tricks.
Trick 7— East's lead of a third round of
trumps is risky, but he is playing for a
big game, and sees a probability that the
trumps are evenly divided.
Trick B— South " could save two tricks b>
leading a heart instead of ace of spades.
We think the heart should have been led!
South can see that the ace of spades is
probably the only trick he can take, and
he is not at all certain of taking that: he
should hold the ace of spades to block the
suit; it can hardly do any harm, and may
shut out the spade suit that is fairiy marked
with East if it is held back until East's re
entry in hearts is gone. South should play
to get the* ace of hearts out of East's hand
before spades are lead.

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 21.— Manager Julian

offers that are pouring in on them in con
nection with the Corbett fight. They say
they cannot understand why clubs and indi
viduals should keep on offering purses for
limited round fights, when thew have both
openly stated that they will only countenance
a finish fight. Julian said last night: "On
account of the receipt of numerous offers
during the past two or three days from New

V?L l^ &t n th v ere l 8 some thing in the wind.
I think Corbett has induced these people
to make these offers to bid for a limited round
go, knowing all the time that I will refuse
these offers, and thereby appear as refusing
all offers he has proposed. It is plain to be
seen that Corbett is b«hind the various club
people, and that every time I say no to the
offers it tickles him to death. %« to save

The horse palace that old Comodore
Kittson built at Kittsondale housed a
good many samples of what is known
to the talent as a "g-ood thing" while
the commodore was alive, but even
in its palmy days the big stable did
not have quite as many of the best
of them at any one time as it did dur
ing the past summer. The statement
is made on the proposition that horses
are to be regarded as good things in
proportion to their capacity as money
getters. Frank Luhrs says that at one
period within a couple of weeks there
were horses there in training which
had earned for their owners not less
than $150,000, and that is a tidy piece
of money in these days, when they
hang up dollars for prize fighters and
doughnuts for horses. And the fact
that horses of this class are sent to
Minnesota to be handled and trained
Is speaking pretty well for the climate,
ccnsldering the fact that horse racing
is practically barred under the present
Only a few wise men knew it, but
there has been an opportunity afforded
to any one who looked it up, to see the
best bunch of yearlings in the country
in training on the Kittsondale track
any fine morning for the past three
months or more. The New York sport
ing papers have been talking a good
deal of late about the fact that
the fastest of the Kentucky yearlings
of the season brought $3,500 on account
o£ the time he showed at his age. And
yet there were eight yearlings in the
bunch at Kittsondale that showed bet
ter time than the Kentucky crack on
trial. But they are not for sale and
twenty-five of them were shipped home
to winter quarters on Friday last.
Among the lot there are a number that
may be depended upon to take off some
good things aril Luhrs thinks there
may be some world beaters among
the lot — and Luhrs ought to know
The stables out of which these promis
ing ones came included those of Schorr,
the rich Memphis brewer and breeder-
Jack McDonald, of Louisville: J. C
Cushing and Orth, of Minneapolis.
Among the kings of the running turf
in handling were Boundless, who
picket! up $50,000 for his owner by win
ning the American derby in the
World's fair year; Dr. Rice, who
brought off nearly as good a thing for
AVKLE BAXGLES WORN BY BICYCLISTS.
Foster and his friends in -the Brooklyn
handicap; Counter Tenor, the winner
of the Metropolitan handicap, and Lola
Easton, who has the fastest mark for
a three-quarter horse in the West. The
last three are still in handling and may
be seen out nearly any day. Luhrs
has a sort of perpetual horse show
going on for lovers of fast horses and
the pictures of the dead and gone
fast ones that look down from the
walls of the cooling ring on the later
generation need not be ashamed of the
equines that fill the stalls they once
occupied — if dead horses have any re
gard for any old thing.
Outside of the running class there
are a couple of fast pacers, notably
Dr. Easton's Badge. Graves' Colbert,
and the phenomenal Sphinxetta, Oli
ver Twist and Mitchell Boy make very
decent representatives of the trotting
"Bill Wilson, you know him, used to
be with the Stanford stud at Palo Alto
for years, has had a pretty busy sea
son with the runners," said Frank
Luhrs, speaking about the horses just
shipped home, and their trainer.
"Wilson knows all about horses and he
tells me that some of them are won
ders, and I can readily believe him
for I never saw a better lot. And the
showing made here by so many of them
convinced me of what I have held for
years and which is coming to be thor
oughly understood by owners: That the
climate of Minnesota is the right thin^
for horses in training. Some of the
best horses ever put under a pigskin
were broken and handled in this state,
and that owners know this is demon
strated in the length of the string and
the blue blood at Kittsondale this sea
son. The horses can't be used here, for
the laws shut off the runners — but they
can't shut off the sending of them here
for training, and, if there was any
sort of chance for the horsemen, this
state would be pretty well at the front
of the list for horse breeding. But
there seems to be no sort of local
interest in and, with the exception of
Mr. Gushing and Mr. Orth, of Minne
apolis, I don't know any men who
take any stock In the runners. And
to my mind the only way to have a
horse race is to start the runners. If
it were not for expense of shipping,
every runner in Kentucky would be
sent here in yearling form for hand
ling and next year it is quite certain
that there will be a lot of them sent
up. And I don't care if they send them

Dr. Ilnrtmuu's Cure for Chronic Ca
tarrh—A Generons Offer.
In view of the great multitude of
people suffering from some form of
chronic catarrh, and yet unable to find
any cure. Dr. Hartman, the well
known eastern physician and surgeon,
has announced his willingness to direct
the treatment of as many cases of
catarrh as make application to him
during the next two months without
charge. The treatment will be con
ducted by correspondence. The doctor
will prescribe all medicines, applica
tions, hygienic and dietary regulations
necessary to complete a cure. The
medicines prescribed can be obtained at
all drug stores. Any person can be
come a regular patient by sending age,
condition of life, history and symptoms
of disease and treatment previously
received. All correspondence will be
held strictly confidential. No testi
monials of cures will be given to the
public except by the express wish of.
As is well-known, Dr. Hartman is
the president of the Surgical Hotel, an
institution which has a department
devoted exclusively to the treatment
of catarrhal diseases. The principal
remedy he relies upon in such cases Is
Pe-ru-na. which every person should
have who has any catarrhal affection.

that a number of passenger car;; in wWca all

of axles, wheels, bearings and springs, brake

an ordinary train in France consists ot 1
