Tuesday morning the Western league
magnates will hold a meeting in Kansas
City. At the close of that meeting the
excuse for not making public any plan
will be gone and Whitfield must then
tell the baseball world just, why he ex

Whitfield and his followers may have
several cards up their sleeves, but the
fanatics interested in this little clash of
rival organizations are at present claim
ing residence in Missouri—Mr. Whitfield
will have to show the fanatics.'
The Western has, during the past few
weeks, made considerable noise, but the
uproar furnished a hollow sound, and
that is ab-Hit all it furnished. The West
ern leaders have made many claims, but
the page held out for the list of claims
'made good has yet to receive a mark
The plain, cold truth is that Whitfield
end his followers are on the run—have
been on the run for a considerable time
past. The collection of club owners,
headed by the Kansas City man, have

together until their meeting is held, for
at this meeting they arc to meet Mr,
Powers, Mr. Sexton, Mr. O'Rourke, Mr.
Murnane and Mr. Farrell, all of this list
being the supreme high bosses' of the
National association of Minor Leagues.
Promises From Powers.
From this delegation the Western lead
ers expect to receive strong promises
that Mr. Powers' followers are to go
right out and tell Hickey and his fighters
to go away from the Western league
territory. Mr. Farrell will, without
doubt, issue another bulletin threatening
the blacklist, for all players doing busi

another motion to expel Hickey will be
Powers and his friends may be able to
help out the Western, and the Western,
knowing of this help, may be waiting pa
tiently for the arrival of the dictators
from the East, but hardly this. The
American association is now thoroughly
organized, has adopted its circuit, has
awarded its franchises and "-decided upon
the opening date and the number of
games to be played. To spoil all this
Powers and the ethers will have to hurry
and exert themselves considerable.
It is easy enough for the Western mag
nates to sit down and solemnly assure
each other that the American association
is an outlaw league, and Farrell, secre
tary of the National Association of Minor
Leagues, can issue daily bulletins de
scribing the fate awaiting all players
who come to the American, but the
fanatic keeping track of baseball history
knows full well just what independent
leagues can do, and the ball players

Yesterday's Events Were All Close
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 11.—A large
crowd witnessed good racing at Oakland
today, the features being the Follans

In the former event San Nicholas got out
of the maiden ranks. He took command
at the start and was never headed, win
ning from the Giver. Sweet Tooth; the
favorite, finished fourth. Water Cure
was a pronounced favorite for the Athe
nian, but his impost of 126 pounds was
evidently too much for him, as he failed
to get any of the money. Position won
by a length from Rollick. Vesuvian was
third. Bullman carried off the riding
honors by landing three winners in
succession. Thaddeus was the only fa
vorite to win. The victory of Einstein,
a ten to one shot in the third race, was
the surprise of the afternoon.

CHICAGO, Jan. 11.—A stadium which
will seat 75,000 people, and which in point
of size, elegance and excellence of ar
rangement will probably excel any
other building ever erected for a similar
purpose, is outlined in a set of prelim
inary plans just placed in the hands of
Harry J. Furber, Jr., president of the
Olympian games association.. The struc
ture will house the Olympian games, to
be held in Chicago in 1904.
The building will cover approximately
eleven: acres, the arena alone being 800
feet long and 130 feet wide. The stadium
at Athens, where the Olympian games
were held in 1896, was but 670 feet long
and 109 feet wide. It seated between
45,000 and 50,000 persons. The plans .for
the Chicago stadium provides for more
than 75,000 seats in case they " may be
necessary on the day when there will
be special attractions at the games.
The area over the seats will be
roofed in the usual way, but the arena
will be protected by a roof or left with-;

Greatest Games Ever Held.
The Olympian games of 1904, it is pre

held before at any period in history.
Athletics have 1 advanced with the arts
and sciences, and where the ancient
Greeks had but few tests of strength and
endurance, there are now scores. The
ancient sports will be reproduced in
Chicago, but the modern games of all
nations will doubtless attract greater at

footraces and wrestling, and the Egyp

The athletic end of the games will be
under the direction of William Hale
Thompson and A. G. Spalding. The for

sport on the glebe, and Mr. Spalding is
to select the contests which are to make
up the programme for the month. Mr.
Thompson already has men at work in
Europe and Asia as well as in America,
looking for the best athletic material
It has been decided to keep the stadium
open for a month, instead of fifteen
days, as was at first planned.
CUTTS NOT AN AMATEUR.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. Oliver
F. Cutis, right tackle of the Harvard
football team of 1001, whose athletic
standing was the subject of an exhaust
ive inquiry before the game with Yale
last November, is declared a professional
in a statement made public today by
Prof. Ira N. Hollis, of the Harvard ath
letic committee. Evidence was produced
that while teaching at Haverford, Cutts
gave private boxing lessons for pay.
Cutts admitted the facts, and the
committee decided that they must
change their decision made the evening
before the Yale game, that Cutts" was a
pure amateur. It was also decided to
explain the case to the college, and to
send copies of the explanation to all
the colleges and universities which Har-
yard played, as the best means of repa
ration. It is thought that, coming just
at this time, the matter will serve to
further the idea, already popular at
Harvard, of having an intercollegiate

all such cases in future. *

LONDON, Jan. 11.—The Earl of Dysart!
has-offered £10,000 towards the erection
of a national opera house In London, pro
vided* the balance of the £500,000 which
he believes is needed, Is raised in six
months. The earl has long been interest
ed in . this scheme and has associated
himself with Prof. Stanford and Sir Alex
ander Mackenzie in an endeavor to get
the county council, to assist and subsidize
a British home: for opera. It is doubtful'
if the earl's present effort will stimulate
does today. There are now over 100
chapters of the order In this state, with
a membership of nearly 10,000.
St. Paul Chapter No. 24 was instituted
in ISS9, under the auspices of Braden
Lodge No. 168, A. F. and A. M. For a
number of years the chapter held its
meetings in the hall of Braden lodge, on
East Seventh street, bat later moved to
the Masonic Temple, on West Fifth
street, with the lodge.
The present officers of the chapter are:
Worthy matron, Miss 'Caroline E. Bell;
worthy patron, Lawrence Hope; associate
Matron, Mrs. Belle Miller; conductress,

The earl has led a romantic life. He
was obliged to wait until he was forty
years old before he was allowed, under
the will of his father, who died in a
miser's garret, to handle the vast family
estates. The old earl died when the pres
ent earl was only nineteen years of age
After many vicissitudes and comparative
•poverty, the present earl came into pos
session of the estates in 1899, but then he
was almost blind. Fabulous sums were
spent in medical advice, but he has been
unable to obtain relief.
Mixture of Odd Fancies.
All his life the earl has been an ->u
thusiastic musician, with Wagnerian ten
dencies. Music takes the first place in
his affections, though homeopathy runs a
close second. Atßuckmlnster, his splen
did Lincolnshire seat, the earl has a re
markable laboratory, containing almost
every homeopathic E drug . in existence.
There Is scarcely a house in his large es
tates which has not a piano. At Buck
-.minster and his other residence, ..Ham
House, Richmond, "■ there' are extraordin
ary collections of musical instruments-, in
.•-.'' '■.-.■;■ ■■' ' . ■
eluding many pianos, several organs,
harpsichords, violins, harps and the lat
est mechanical adaptations for the piano.
For -years the earl wrote to the Times
demanding that the people should go to
Covent Garden dressed as they pleased.
He failed to convince society, but as an
exposition of his own theory, when he
attend, the opera, the Earl of Dysart
sits among the "gods" dressed in the
plainest of clothes. This democratic idea
is not carried out at. the earl's country
seat. There dinner is a great ceremony.
The Russian custom of a preliminary
meal, where the guests assemble in the
hall and partake of numerous hors
d'oeuvres and liqueurs, is still kept up,
the earl invariably appearing in a pink
coat and black silk tights. He has trav
eled in all parts of the world, and his
gardens contain some of the finest statu
ary in England.
