PLOTS AND SCHEMES
6PALDIXCS RESIGNATION SIMPLY
FIRST MOVE IX HIS
PLAN
American is interested
Freed man and Brush May Join
Johnson league, and Ban
Thinks Well of the
Idea.
CHICAGO, Feb. 21.—This unexpected
resignation of Spalding is simply the first
move in his plan to sever all relations
with the Freedman faction and play out
this season's schedule on a four-club
basis. Spalding's letter of resignation was
evidently written under the direction of
his attorney, and will undoubtedly figure
In the trial of the Spalding-Freedman
law suit in New York.
Mr. Spalding, in his letter of resigna
tion, says that it was because of a re
quest from four clubs that he took the
stand which has brought the affairs of
the National league into the courts, and
that as the playing season is approach
ing and a number of financial problems
are to be solved, he will not further em
barrass the owners of the Brooklyn, Phil
adelphia, Pittsburg and Chicago clubs
unless they are willing to abide by his
policy and continue if necessary with a
four-club circuit. He concludes by say
ing that it is up to Hart, Dreyfuss, Rog
ers and Ebbitts to either meet Saturday
in Pittsburg and to assume the respon
sibility by either continuing the fight
against Freedman or to surrender to the
opposition and accept whatever terms
may be handed out to them.
Reading between the lines of Spald
ing 1 s letter, it is plain to see that he lias
decided on a four-club circuit, and that
he wants to go before the public with
a vote of indorsement from Chicago,
Pittsburg, Philadelphia and Brooklyn be
fore beginning active preparations for the
coming playing season.
It is safe to predict that Spalding
knows that he can count on the votes of
Hart, Rogers, Dreyfuss and Ebbitts for
the simple reason that these magnates
know that Freedman hates them cordial
ly, and will not listen to any plan of
compromise by which they could secure
a fair hearing. In brief, the affairs of
the National league are so badly involved
and the members of the Spalding faction
have gone so far in their efforts to drive
out Freedman that they cannot afford to
turn back now, and must as a matter of
self-protection continue to herd together.
When Johnson meets the club owners
in the American league at their annual
spring meeting in Detroit next month,
he will be prepared to submit at least
three new plans for expanding and im
proving the present playing circuit of the
league. Johnson will also go into the
meeting armed with three schedules, and
as a result there will be no friction over
choice dates nor delay in giving out the
schedule adopted, no matter what action
is taken in disposing of the circuit prob
lem.
It is a fact that Johnson looks with
favor on the proposition to form a ten
eiub circuit by adding tue New York and
Cincinnati National league clubs to the
present list. Both Freedman and Brush
are ready and eager to break away from
the National league, proving they can
make satisfactory* arrangements with the
American league.
Comiskey, Kiliilea, and one or two
others of the leading men in the Amer
ican league are said to favor the ten
dub plan, and it will be strongly pushed
at the Detroit meeting.
Johnson's first idea was to transfer the
Baltimore team to New Yoru. and con
solidate the Cleveland and Cincinnati
teams In the last named city. But the
events and incidents of the last forty
eight hours convinced Johnson that it
would be bad policy to surrender the
Baltimore and Cleveland territory at this
time, especially as there is more than an
even chance that Sunday games can be
played in Cleveland this year.
There is no doubt but wat a deal of
this sort, if consummated, will meet with
popular favor in ooth Cincinnati and New
York. Brush has quietly sounded the
Cincinnati public on the subject through
the medium of the newspapers, and the
result shows the American league senti
ment in that city is growing stronger
every day.
Ashley Lloyd, the secretary and treas
urer, and John McPhee, the manager of
the present Cincinnati club, both indorse
and favor the scheme, while Business
Manager Bancroft is jubilant over the
prospects. McPhee said yesterday:
"If we go into the American league I
will have to hustle around for new play
ers, as I want a bit stronger team. The
teams in Ban Johnsons league are all so
confounded strong that the Reds, as they
appear now, would not look to have much
of a chance. Perhaps it will be possible
to get some good ball players if the deal
goes through. You see. the Reds look
good enough in the National league as
it is now made up, but we cannot deny
that the American league is much strong-

An Excellent Combination.
i
The pleasant method and beneficial
effects of the well kncwn remedy,*
SyRUP of Figs, manufactured by the
California Fig Syrup Co., illustrate
the value of obtaining-the liquid laxa
tive principles of plants known to be
medicinally laxative and presenting"
them in the form most refreshing 1 to the
taste and acceptable to the system. It
is the one perfect strengthening laxa
tive, cleansing the system effectually,
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
gently yet promptly and enabling one
to overcome habitual constipation per
jsanently. Its perfect freedom from
every objectionable quality and sub
stance, and its acting on the kidneys,
liver and bowels, without weakening
or irritating them, make it the ideal
laxative.
In the process of manufacturing figs
are used, as they are pleasant to the
taste, but the medicinal qualities of the
remedy are obtained from senna and
other aromatic plants, by a method
known to the California Fig Syrup
Co. only. In order to get its beneficial
effects and to avoid imitations, please
remember the full name of the Company
printed on the front of every package.

(farsale by all Druggists.— Pricesoc. per bottla,
er, and, consequently, our chances would
diminish considerably."
Bancroft, who is Brush's confidential
man of business, said: "Why, this is the
bes- scheme I ever heard of. It would re T
vive the game in Cincinnati, and boom
it as it has not been boomed in years."
Meanwhile Johnson, Brush, and FreedI-
man decline to discuss the details of the
proposed deal.
Johnson's second plan is an eight-club
circuit, with Cleveland and Baltimore re
placed by Cincinnati and New York. This
will meet wifti considerable opposition,
and may be dropped.
His third and final scheme will be to
continue the old circuit for at least
another year, with the aim. of invading
New York and Cincinnati in 1903.
Meanwhile Secretary Robert Mcßay is
framing up a series of schedules in order
that Johnson will be in a position to meet
any emergency which may develop at
the meeting in Detroit.
FIGHT MANAGERS ROW
HARRIS-YANGER FIZ3M/E STARTS
ALL SORTS OF TROUBLE.
CHICAGO, Feb. 21.—Forfeits, side bets,
new challenges or unfairness and almost
everything except personal encounters
entered into the debate yesterday over
the breaking of the Harry Harris-Ben
ny Yanger match. There was a lot of
money flashed, each manager told the
other that there would be nothing to the
tight if the men met, but nothing was ac
complished in the way of healing the
breach.
Harris arrived late in the afternoon
from New York, supposing that he had
two fights on his hands, one with Aus
tin Rice at the Pyramid club for Feb. 27
and another with Yanger at the Ameri
can club, March 3. The Harris party made
several propositions to John Hertz, Yang
er's manager, but got no satisfaction:
In answer to a proposition made by Hertz
to bet $1,000 to $500 that Yanger could
beat Harris under the terms of the brok.
en match Abe Pollock deposited $500 with
Tom Hanton as his part of the bet and
asked Hertz to cover the amount with
$1,000. Hertz says he will not now ac
cept the bet because the match is off.
The substance of the contention is that
Hertz claims unfair treatment through
the matching of Harris with Rice for a
fight four days before he was to meet
Yanger. The Harris party claims there
was nothing in the articles to prevent it,
and that Hertz failed to put up a forfeit
to bring off the Yanger-Harris match.
As a matter of fact the present row is
the second between the rival manage:*
since the articles for the match were
signed. In the articles Malachy Hogan
was named as the referee, and was ac
ceptable to both parties. George Siler,
the official referee of the American club,
felt that he had been slighted and em
phasized his grievance by resigning from
his position. This act on the part of
Siler precipitated an argument between
Hertz and Pollock, and the match was
declared off, although news of the matter
was withheld because a new agreement,
in which the club promised Siler to never
overlook him again, was reached. Hogan,
however, was to referoe the Harris-
Yanger affair.
The outcome of the argument is un
certain. Both managers want vengeance,
and say they will get it. One is said to
have declared he would close boxing in
Chicago and the other has some other
scheme to get even. It's a plain everyday
row among the managers of boxers.
VAN BETJNT PAYS THE RENT.
Western League Still Holds the Mil-
wankee Ball Park.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Feb. 21.—This city
is now threatened with two ball clubs.
Fred Gross, secretary of the old Brewers
and principal owner of the leasehold of
the ball park, says he has received the
second $1,000 from Magnate Van Brunt,
on the Western league lease of the park
He- says that league now has Peoria,
Colorado Springs, St. Joe, Dcs Moines
and Cedar Rapids, and that this city
completes its circuit. Hie also says
with great confidence that his organiza
tion can get together a winning team at
a week's notice. All of which means
that Mr. Gross intends now to be in the
baseball business here himself. If the
Western league does put a team here
Mr. Gross undoubtedly will be found to
be interested in it.
TOO BUSY TO SERVE.
Xell Snow Resigns the Captaincy of
Michigan Ball Team.
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 21.—Neil
Snow is out for the best shot-put this
year owing to his fine showing in this
event last Friday night. In consequence
today he resigned the captaincy of the
baseball team and Pitcher Jerry Utley
was elected in his place.
"A captain ought to be on the field
during all practice hours, and if I filled
the position I would not feel at liberty
to leave the diamond to go over and take
coaching for a field event," said Snow.
"Besides. I have college work that
keeps me busy until 5 o'clock three times
a week. I will do all I can for the Base
ball team, however, and there is noth
ing but good feeling between al the can
didates."
CHILDS IN CONDITION
For Match With "Denver E«l" Mar
tin Monday XfK'lit.
CHICAGO, Feb. 21. - Iranic Childs
is in great condition for the
meeting Monday night at the Amer
ican club with "Denver Ed" Martin. This
contest, which has been made a half
dozen times and will be for the heavy
weight championship among black box
ers, is creating a lot of interest locally
When weighed yesterday after his work
Childs scaled at 178 pounds. This is
about the best figure that, the local man
can do and will bring him into the ring
in the best possible condition.

Bettors Think Dif

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 21.—A1l ar
rangements for the fi§ht between Terry
McGovern and Dave fcSullivan tomorrow
night before the Southern Athletic club
in this city have been completed and re
porls^from the fighters indicate that they
are in prime condition for the contest.
Both men have finished their training
and will weigh in at the auditorium here
tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock when,
according to the agreement if either tips
the scales; at over 126 pounds he will
forfeit $500.
The fighters will enter the ring at 9
o'clock and will box twenty-five rounds
straight Marquis of Queensbury rules for
60 per cent of the gate receipts, 75 per
cent to the winner and 25 to the loser.
McGovern, with his manager, Sam
Harris, and his trainers, Charlie May
hood, Joe Humphreys and Hugh McGov
ern, will arrive in the city tomorrow
morning from Cincinnati, where McGov
ern has been in training. Sullivan is in
Louisville, where he has been prepared
for the contest <by Tom Sharkey, Bob
Armstrong, the negro heavyweight, and
Joe Seiger, who was Young Corbett's
sparring partner when he trained for his
successful fight with McGovern on
Thanksgiving day.
Bob Fitzsimmons, who will referee the
contest, arrived in the city tonight.
The prospects are that the largest
crowd that ever witnessed a fight in Ken
tucky will be on hand when time is called
and nearly every seat in the house has
been already sold. The number of out of
town spectators will be large. Parties
will arrive in the city tomorrow from
New York, Chicago, Cincinnati, Colum
bus and the Indiana gas belt.
Sullivan Feeling: Fine.
LOUISVILLE, Feb. 21.—Jim Kennedy,
matchmaker of the Yosemite Athletic
club, and Tim Hurst reached Louisville
tonight to attend tae McGovern-Sullivan
fight. A number of other prominent New
Yorkers will be here Saturday. Bob Fitz
simmons, who is to referee tne argument
between Sullivan and McGovern, reached
town today. Saturday morning cut of
town people will be coming in bunches.
Sullivan is feeling fine and says he is
beyond question in the best condition of
his career. He says he will v/in over
McGovern because he will outpoint, out
box and outgeneral the "terrible one."
Sullivan was displeased over the accusa
tion made by McGovern's manager, Sam
Harris, that Sullivan intended to win 13y
means fair or foul. Dave says he is go
ing to box strictly on the level, pnd he
hopes McGovern, when he gets stung
good and lively will keep his cemper.
Sharkey, who is looking after Sullivan's
interests, says: "If any fouling is dene
McGovern will be the offending party.
Harris -has let out a roar before he is
hurt. I am really surprised at Samuel
He must be feeling a bit shaKy, and is
evidently trying to establish some sort of
an a'ibi. Sullivan is going to win be
yond question. Watch us come home.
McGovern is in superb shape. He can
not say he is not properly trained. He
has worked harder and longer for Sulli
van than he ever did f>r anybody else.
No stage life has figured in this contest
he is going to have with Sullivan, so let
us have a clear track and a fair ; hake.
May the glory go to the winner 3s all 1
ask."
Just Before the Battle.
CINCINNATI, Feb. 21.—Every sporting
man in Cincinnati believes the McGovern-
Sullivan bout will last liardly long enough
for a spectator to get comfortably settled
in his seat. All think Terry will win
within a few rounds, and this conviction
regarding the battle will to some extent
affect the attendance.
The fight followers of this city, partic
ularly those who have seen McGovern
at work, take little stock in the reports
irom Louisville that Sullivan money is
going begging. There are no Sullivan
backers here, and McGovern. at 2 to 1 is
carrying about all that has been wagered
in this city.
The impression has grown that Sulli
van is overrated, and that h>2 is far from
being Mc-Govern's equal in the ring. This
was the twenty-first day of training for
McGovern, and he has eased up in nig
work. Tomorrow he will take light ex
ercise and with his party will go to
Louisville Saturday morninpr.
Terry went about four miles around
the Oakley race track and fought tour
rounds with "Kid" Ashe. He also put in
a few minutes punching the bag and
throwing the medicine ball. The entire
camp is happy over the nearness of the
battle and all are confident as to the
outcome.
Terry said: "Without a doubt I am in
better condition than I ever was before
in my life. I have trained very hard for
this fight, taking no chance on going
down to defeat again from lack of condi
tion."
Referee Charley White and Paddy Sul
livan, of New York, ariived at Cincinnati
this morning and immediately repaired
to Camp McGovern to get a line on
Terry. They were exceedingly well
pleased when they saw the fine condition
of the little whirlwind. White, however,
would not make a prediction as to the
outcome of the fight.

Feb. 25.
Joe Martin, who says he is champion

B. C. The "go" will be decided the first
week in March. It will be for twenty

is to go to the loser.
Dave Barry writes that he has decided
to be his own manager in the future, and
will mave no other mentor. He would
like a chance at any 135 to 13S-pound
man in the business.
Billy Devlne, of Philadelphia, seems to
be a hard customer. After beating Spike
Sullivan at 135 pounds, he took on Eddie
Kern edy at catchweights, Ed weighing
about 149 pounds, and jabbed the head
off the Pittsburger.
It is now hinted that the Erne-Gans

a club, had the Erne-Gans go as his

th« local Philadelphia managers.
Henry Senter certainly delivers the
goods. The black St. Louis boy is the
best fighting negro seen round Chicago
in years. He can get backing to meet
any 138-pound man in town.
Al Neil, of California, and Mike Dono

fought a 20-round draw at Los

This will be thefr fourth meeting. The

The promoters of pugilism at San Fran

is understood that this procedure will
be adopted by every reputable club in

Harry Klink says Kid Sayers is do

welterweight champions of Canada, and
"Juey" Cook, for 10-stone championship

Jack McKenna, who handles the affairs
of Abe Attell. the California feather

that a match between Attell and Terry
McGovern has already been made, and
that the battle will be held after Mc-

Feb. 22. It is understood that this scrap
wiS take place at St. Louis.
Al Herford, manager of Joe Gans, calls
Frank Erne, lightweight champion of the
world, a coward, because he failed to go
on with Gans in Philadelphia the other
night. The charge is absurd on the
face of it. Erne cannot be a coward or
he would not be a champion. He earned
that title by hard fighting. Ha must have
had very good reasons for refusing to
meet Gans, and until his charges that
there was a deal on to beat him are dis
proven another dent will have" been
placed in the record of Herford.
CV YOUNG'S SLOW BALL
iCOVERY CMF THE TEASER BY
PITCHER WAS AN ACCIDENT.
"Cy" Young's most effective ball last
season was a slow one with a big drop
on it, and, after he commenced using
this, he had all of the American league
stickers breking their spinal cords try
ing to land for safeties. They could not
connect at all, and he wound, up tj^a year
with a brilliant record of victories be
hind him. His discovery of this tantaliz
ing ball was almost an accident. Early
in the season the Baltimore club was
playing in Boston, and big "Cy" had
been selected to do the twirling. As
usual, he began sending them up so fast
that they looked like b!rds"hot. But the
McGraw aggregation had good eyes that
day, and every time a bat swung it hit
something. Singles anct doubles were be
ing made with a regularity that com
menced to take all the sap out of Cyrus.
He showed evidences of being weary of
the game. Finally he threw up a slow
one, delivered partially underhanded. It
just lobbed up lazily, and then all of
a sudden ii- dropped from the barter's
shoulders almost down to his knees. He
fanned at it. This surprised the pitch
er as much as it did the sticker. Again
the trick was tried, and again it was*
successful. The rest of that game
Young worked the slow, wide out drop
in connection with an occasional fast
straight ball, and he pulled a victory out
of what looked like sure defeat. He did
not forget the slow ball, and a great por
tion of his practice work after that was
devoted to perfecting it. He made a
study, of the delivery and before the
season was old he had it down pat.

Career of
ffanci/Jtanks
The stories of brow Cresceus and Peter
Stirling, two of the season's champions,
came so dangerously near being lost to
the trotting turf has brought out many
tales by the trainers of how some of the
bright harness stars happened to be. of
which this by Ben Kenny, concerning the
career of Nancy Hanks, 2:04, now on
the farm of J. Malcolm Forbes, near Boa
ton, is most interesting:
"I took a fancy to her from the start.
You boys all know how-it is—there Is
something about a really good horse, even
in its colthood. that appeals to a man
who has had to do with horses in a pro
fessional way. The little filly was my fa
vorite. I broke her, and soon had her
jogging to a break cart. Say, she had all
the gaits but a trot. She could pace, am
ble, singlefoot and run, but showed no
disposition to trot.
"Then I began experimenting with
shoes and toe weights, and it was not
long until I had the little thing trotting,
although a good deal of the credit of
making her strike that gait and stick to
it was due to a piece of plowed ground
that has not been harrowed, and was
consequently pretty rough.
"I would work the filly to the cart over
that, r*d the inequalities of the ground
kept IM' trotting, when, on a smooth
track, she would have paced in spite of
all I could do. Ever after It was settled
between me and the filly that she was to
be a trotter, sihe wcujd often glide Into
the smoothest pace you ever saw, and
almost invariably when first taken from
the barn she would strike that gait an<f
stick to it until admonished by a word
and the shifting of the bit that I wanted
her to trot.
"I remember that the fall sfte wag a
two-year-old, and when it was plain the
filly would make a fast trotter, she struck
a pace one day just as she was coming
to the slowest quarter on the farm track.
She went at it with so mucH vim that
I decided to let Irer have her own way,
and the style in wtech she stepped that
slow quarter in 'rf»i to an old-fashioned
cart, pacing away as if she had never
known any other gait, convinced me that
she would make a champion side-wheeler
if trained at that way of going.
"I never lost a race with Nancy—ln
fact, I lost but one heat. She had no
tions, as do most good horses, but s*ha
was ready to do her best any time you
asked her. and I am not surprised that
her son has been a trotter from the
time he was weaned."
And Charged for Prescription.
The busy doctor was hurrying down the
street when he was stopped by a man
noted for his ability to get "sidewalk"
advice.
"I am thoroughly worn out and sick
and tired. What ought I take?" asked
the man.
"Take a cab." replied the unfeeling
doctor.— N. Y. Times.
