P. T. Powers' Association of Minor
Leagues is making good G. T. Stallings'
threat that the National Association of
Elinor Leagues intends to spinel real
money in an attempt to wreck the Amer

clubs, and St. Paul has been picked by

lent received word from a reliable
Eastern n.ar. that almost every player
signed to a contract by Manager Kelly
is now being tampered with by the agents
vt the Powers organization.
Per some time past President Hit-key,
who is now hi the- city, and the other
1< aders of the American, have known that
the agents from the Association of Minor
Leagues have been attempting to entice
players away from the new organization,
but despite all this the information re
ceived here yesterday was a great sur
prise, for it proved that the Powers
agents have money back of them, and,
than this, that they are attempting
to land a telling blow by completely
wrecking one team.
Already the St. Paul management
knows that five of its players have been
tampered with, and Manager Kelly re
luctantly admits that he is convinced
that at least three, and perhaps four,
men have forgotten about the signed con
now in the baseball office safe, and
ere now spending money advanced to

Manager Kelly has positive proof that

five of his men have been approached,
and he feels certain that almost every
other man on the team is receiving tempt
ing offers. The manager of the Saints
has been doing a little detective work,
and he is sorry with his results, for now
he feels unable to even guess at his line
up at the opening of the season.
Charlie Chech, one- of the stars on the
Saints' twirling staff last season, is one
of the men sought by the Powers agents,
and when Chech plays here this season
the fanatics should never forget that the
young fellow thought of his honor first
and then turned down an offer that would
start many of the big league twirlers to.
ward the cor.tract-jumper list.
Chech, at the close of last season, in
formed President Lennon that he was
more than satisfied with his treatment in
St. Paul and announced his willingness
to sign for another season. He named
his terms, and after Lennon filled in the
blank space sugned a contract.
Yesterday Manager Kelly received two
letters. Chech wrote from Madison, Wis.,
and Ihe other missive came from the
stamping grounds of the Powers crowd.
Chech's letter confirmed the information
sent in the other, for in this letter Chech
sent the following telegram received from
G. T. Stallings, the recognized agent or
the minor leagues:
"Buffalo. N. V., March i'4.—C. "W
Cheek, Ballplayer, Madison, Wis..: Will
give you $4CO per month. Answer.
—"G T. Stanings."
Chech, though the temptation was
without doubt a great one, refused this
offer, and at once sent word to the St.
Paul management. His letter and the
telegram simply convinced Kelley that
his failure to hear from four of his play
ers is due to the work of the Powers
Manager Kelley will leave for Chicago
tonight, and will at once begin to inves
tigate the actions of the players under
suspicion. Kelley refused to feel at all
worried about the outcome, but he is
anxious "to present to the St. Paul fans,
the team he announced upon his arrival
in the city.
"The fact that the Powers people are
after several of our players does not
worry me," said the manager last night,
'for I have enough men in line to start
off the season and I have several other
fast ones where I can get them in a
hurry. I dislike seeing any of the men
jumping from me at this time, for I do
not want the fans to think that I did not

Stallings announced several weeks ago
that his organization intended to raise
a $10,000 purse for the express purpose of
wrecking the American association. This
money was to be expended in buying up
the stars of the league. The fact that
several of the St. Paul players are re

TUDNER DENIES SIGNING.
Player Claim* He Never Receive:!
Advance Money From Brooklyn.
TOLEDO, Ohio, March 27.—Tuck Tur
ner is somewhat indignant at a story
that purports to be an interview with
Ed Hanlon, of the Brooklyn team, in
which he says that Turner, Joss,
Wright and Gochanaur all received $400
advance money from him at different
times this winter.
Tuck makes a flat denial of the story,
and says he never received a cent of ad
vance money from Ebbitts, with whom
he transacted all his business, and w.ho
represented Hanlon in the ball deal. Tuck
says he is satisfied Joss received no ad
vance money. Several times Ebbitts
wrote to Tuck and offered him money,
but he declined to take it, as he was
never in favor of going to Brooklyn, and
didn't consider the contract signed last
fall as binding, and had no intention of
going to* Brooklyn a month after he had
signed. Hanlon emits a howl about los
ing the players that is ill-timed, indeed.
Manager Strobel says Brooklyn never had
any just claim to the players mentioned,
as he signed Turner and Joss, of the
Toledo team, and Wright, Gochanaur and
Wheeler, of Dayton, on Aug. 12, during
the playing season, when the protection
paid for at the rate of $100 by each club
did not expire until Sept. 30, and he vio
lated the vital principle of baseball law
by coming here and signing players.

NASTURTIUM MAY NOT RACE.
Whitney Says Colt Has Small Chance
of Winning English Derby.
NEW YORK, March 27.— you were
to ask me my opinion of Nasturtium's
chance of winning the English .Derby, l
would say he has one in ten thousand."
This was VV. C. Whitney's reply to a
query about his'?so,ooo colt's physical con
dition, says the World.
"I have not decided on any action at
present," he said, when asked if he had
decided to withdraw the entry. The race
is too far off to say just what I will do.
My last letter from Mr. Huggins statad
that Nasturtium was slowly improving
in health. That was some time ago. Mr.
Huggins is not much of a letter writer.
He 13 a much better trainer.
"The colt, 1 believe, has been exercis
ing lately, but nothing fast or long has
been asked of him. From all I have
heard! he was quite ill and wasted away
considerably. The interval of time is so
short before the race—about two. months—
that I hardly believe he will be able to
start. It will take all that time it'seems
to me, to get his health back again."
Asked if he is in favor of the "no recall'
system, Mr. "Whitney said:
"Yes, I am. The old style of starting
horses was injurious. ' Rushing a home
away from the post at top speed and
then pulling him up suddenly was more
harmful to him than the race. All this
is obviated under the new system. The
horse runs as fast as"he is capable of
and the best horse invariably wins."
