Hit-key, it must be admitted, did not
mingle with the strenuous circle. The
leader of the American may have ac
complished much in the gum shoe
line, but insisted upon conducting his
league along high moral lines.
Two reasons, and only two, can be
advanced in explanation of the desire
of the club owners to break with
Hickey. Either the magnates are dis
satisfied with the president's order
to have nothing to do with contract
jumper, or they are preparing to sue
with the association of minor leagues
The officials of the minor league or
ganizations blame Hickey for the
American association, and, believing
that he was responsible for the break,
they refuse to treat with the American

It is known that several of the

players of other leagues, and, as Hick

With this understood agreement it
is said that George Tebeau, the Louis

This report, according to the dispatches
from Indianapolis, should have made
mention of profits amounting to almost
$20,000. The Indianapolis dispatch is
believed to have been inspired by Wat

that Tebeau made this money and, if

FREEDMAN QUITS BASEBALL.
He Sells the New York Club to John T.
NEW YORK, Sept. 29. —Andrew
Freedman, president of the New York
baseball club, tonight announced his
retirement from baseball. He said that
he had sold the New York club to
John T. Brush, former owner of the
Cincinnati club. Mr. Freedman has
been In baseball since the winter of
1894, when he purchased a controlling
interest in the New York club from
Edward Talcott and others.
While Mr. Freedman may retain a cer
tain amount of stock in the club for some
time to come, he has entirely withdrawn
from active participation in National
The announcement of the sale of the
club and Mr. Freedman's withdrawal
from baseball came as a surprise when it
was taken into consideration that by dint
of the hardest sort of fighting he became
master of the National league within the
past year. After a short verbal state
ment Mr. Freedman gave a typewritten
one, in which he gave the reason for his
retirement in these words:
"On account of my many business in
terests, I have found that I have been
unable to devote the necessary amount of
time to the club."
In the document Mr. Freedman congrat
ulates Mr. Brush and the New York base
ball club upon passing into his hands,
and ends with the statement that a suc
cessful season has just ended and that the
financial condition of the club is good.
John T. Brush said tonight:
"I have bought the New York club from
Mr. Freedman. The stock I acquired is
a controlling interest, independent of my
previous holdings. I have made the Bos
ton people an offer for their holdings in
the club, but as yet I have had no reply
from Mr. Soden. It is now my intention
to put a winner in New York, and my ev
ery effort will be in that direction. The
American league situation does not bother
me in the least."
Mr. Brush said he would retain McGraw
as manager. He also announced that/he
would make his home in New York after
the coming winter. The amount of money
involVed in the transaction between Mr.
Freedman and Brush has not been given
out. Estimates are that it was close to

home run was the feature. The teams
will play in Brooklyn tomorrow, winding

WINS FROM JOE CHOYNSKI.
Jack O'Brien Altogether Too Fast for the
CHICAGO, Sept. 29.—"Jack" O'Brien,
of Philadelphia, won on points from Joe
Choynskl in a six-round contest here to
night. O'Brien throughout the fight was
too fast for the Chicago man. As soon
as the fight began O'Brien resorted to
jabbing with his left, following this with
his right to the jaw. O'Brien kept this
up for five rounds and during all this
time Choynskl was unable to land a single

cut a deep gash in O'Brien'a forehead
and made the latter furious. Choynskl
tried hard to follow up his advantage
and he soon showed weariness from the
fast pace, and toward the end of the
round he got half a dozen blows on the
jaw that rendered him almost helpless.
OBrien made every effort to finish Cho

SAINTS WEAK IN THE FIELD.
Several Hundred Errors Helped St. Paul

Club fielding and an uncertain pitching

thing on the base lines. Louisville was
down next to St. Paul in club fielding,
but the Colonels had the winning pitchers

REFUSE TO HEED DRIZZLE.
'Varsity Football Team Works Through
a Damp Practice.
Despite a heavy drizzle, Dr. Williams'
'varsity kickers went out for their daily
practice on Northrop field as usual yes
terday afternoon, and no time was wasted
on account of the rain. Togged out in a
crimson colored sweater and bicycle trou
sers. Dr. Williams was active as ever
with his men and worked as hard with
his pxotegres as he would on an ideal day.
Owing to the rain the rooters were kept
indoors, and there was no necessity of
throwing the gates open after the usual
secret practice. Thus the entire time, 4
to 6 o'clock, was really devoted to secret
work. No scrimmaging was indulged in
on account of the muddy field and a
greater part of the time was given over
to signal practice.
It is said that Dr. Williams has some
new plays up his sleeve, and that he is
now giving particular attention to these
new wrinkles. Heretofore, in the open
practice at least, no attempt has been
made to master new plays and straight
old tactics have been the rule. Those
who are familiar with Dr. Williams' past
history as a football instructor will not
be surprised if something out of the or
dinary in the matter of formations is
For the first time in four years the
Hamline team will meet the university
team on Northrop field this afternoon.
In years past great rivalry existed be
tween the elevens represnting these two
institutions, and to some extent this spirit
still lives. The Hamline kickers will come
up ready to give the big fellows the best
they are capable of putting up, and the
contest will no doubt be worth seeing.
Play will commence at 4 o'clock..
NORTH SIDE DEFEATS ALUMNI.
Minneapolis High School Kickers Win
From the Graduates.
Following the precedent established by
the elevens of opposing schools, the North
Side High footballists yesterday admin
istered a sound drubbing to the alumni
team of the same school, Coach Bern*
hagen's boys winning out by a score of
10 to 0.
The game was played on McNeir's field,
and owing to the fact that the grounds
were not properly marked off the North
Side boys were really deprived of two
touchdowns. Twice they got the ball
apparently safe over the opposition's goal
line, but the officials being uncertain as
whether it was over, ruled against the
regulars. Taking this into consideration,
the score does not give a fair estimate of
the strength of the North Side team. The
grass was wet and slippery, and the
players were greatly handicapped in their
movements. Both sides put up credita
ble games, however.
With Bergen, Nye, Burman and other
stars opposing them the regulars found
a hard proposition to go against. They
were competing against one of the strong
est alumni teams in the city. Yet with
Dexter, Shephard, Morrill and Marks and
others at their best, the graduates found
stronger opposition than they had bar
For the Alumni Bergen, Nye, Burman
and Calhoun were the stars, while Dex
ter, Merrill, Barrett and Ertle took the
honors for the regulars.
Coach Bernhagen has a husky lot of
men, and no doubt North Side will give
a good account of itself this season.
Rain Delays Tennis Play.
The unfavorable weather of yesterday
prevented any matches in the university
tennis tournament being played, but some
fast sets were played Saturday, which
resulted in a few more of the players
being weeded out.
One of the greatest surprises in the
tournament thus far was the ease with
which Newhall disposed of Firkins in the
SHUT-OUT GAMES OF AMERICAN ASSOCIATION.
During the season just concluded the teams of the American association
played sixty-two shout-out games. St. Paul scored ten shut-outs against
the opposing teams and the Saints were blanked seven times. Ferguson
pitched four shut-out games, Stimmel blanked the other side twice and Crib
bins, Chech, Cogan and Slette waved the whitewash spreader once each.
Columbus leads as a shut-out team, distributing an even dozen blanks dur
ing the season.

FAMILY OF SEVEN
AT POINT OF DEATH
Arsenic Used, the Apparent Object
Being to Murder the
VINCENNES, Ind., Sept. 29.—Hud
son Autier, his wife Emily and five
children are lying at the point of death
from arsenical poisoning at their home
in this city. The case is couched in
mystery. The Autlers are remarkably
robust and were in the best of health
until they dined today, when all be
came violently ill and were seized
with vomiting spells, excepting a
younger son, Ralph, who declined to
partake of a dish of beans.
That there seems to have been a
plot to murder or seek revenge on the
Autlers is disclosed by the fact that
examination of the beans disclosed the
presence of the deadly drug. The au
thorities are investigating.
THE STRATTON WILL
Alleged Conspiracy to Incite Litigation
for the Profit of Outside
COLORADO SPRINGS, Col., Sept.
29. —Counsel for the executors of the
will of the late W. S. Stratton today
took a sensational step. Formal
charges of conspiracy to involve the
Stratton estate in litigation for the
profit of persons interested in no way
in the estate are brought against H.
M. Blacker and C. C. Hamlin, two of
the administrators to collect, appoint
ed by Judge Orr, Blackmer being de
clared to have already provided money
of his own in an effort to carry out
the terms of a deliberate and fraudu
lent conspiracy entered into with a
view to speculating upon the will of
A charge is made that the court
itself, the judge of which is a brother
in-law of O. P. Grimes, the third ad
ministrator to collect, has shown itself
biased and prejudiced and grossly im
posed upon, and the demand is made
that the litigation be taken out of this
court and transferred to the district
court of El Paso county.

and made practically no loans for spec
ulative purposes. Moreover, the so
called substantial interests offered no
support to the market, which with few
exceptions, including Atchison and St.
Paul, closed at the lowest level.
The officers of J. P. Morgan & Co.
and other leading banking houses were
active during the day. Mr. Morgan
and his associates conferred with some
of the more prominent financiers, in
cluding President Stillman, of the
National City bank; President Baker,
of the First National, and President
Hendricks, of the National Bank of
Clarifying the Atmosphere.
None of these gentlemen would dis
cuss the situation, except to say that
further liquidation of stocks would
clarify the financial atmosphere.
The market opened weak and lower
all around, London's attitude having a
marked effect in that direction. Call
money opened at 15 per cent, went off
a point or two, but soon rose to 20.
In the second hour of the afternoon
session 25 per cent was the quoted
price and the top figure of the year—
35 per cent—was reached In the last
It was in the late trading that prices
melted most, and the decline waa
checked at the close.
Mr. Morgan, when asked his- opinion
regarding the outlook, said:
"Things are very much better. In
fact, I think the situation was much
better today. We paid out something
like $12,000,000 in coupons. I believe
the worst is over, but it may take some
time for things to settle.
"Do you think the stock market will
be stronger tomorrow?"
"I am talking about the financial
situation, not the stock market."
To one of his callers Mr. Morgan is
known to have declared that control
of Louisville & Nashville would un
doubtedly go to interests identified
with the Atlantic Coast line. This dis
position of the property will be made,
£O Mr. Morgan is reported to have
said, without consultation with the
Gates-Hawley Interests in Louisville
& Nashville, though it was not to be
Inferred that the deal would be op
posed by Mr. Gates or Mr. Hawley.
The price fixed for control is 150. Mr.
Morgan said that the Louisville &
Nashville minority interest would be
TRYING TO BORROW ABROAD.
United States After Some of the Gold
Reserves in Vienna.
VIENNA, Sept. 29. — The United
States has applied to some of the larg
est financial institutions in Vienna to
borrow a portion of their gold reserve,
which, owing to operations connected
with the change of the monachy's
monetary system to the gold standard,
is very large. The cellars of the Aus
tro-Hungarian bank are reported to
contain American gold eagles amount -
•ing to from $12,500,000 to $15,000,000.
The American bankers offer to repay
the loans they ask for in interest
bearing bills of exchange.
The opinions of financiers are divid
ed. With regard to the advisability of
acceding to these requests from the
United States, it is asserted in some
quarters that the profits of the trans
mission would be adequate to the risk
involved should the amount borrowed
prove insufficient to ease the New
York money market, and that unfor
seen complications would ensue. The
case of the Barings is cited as a warn
ing, but in the meantime negotiations
to effect the loans are proceeding.
TO SETTLE G. A. R. RATE MATTER.
Western Passenger Association Meets
Today in Chicago.
The Western Passenger association
will meet in Chicago today to consider
matters pertaining to the rates for the
Grand Army encampment at Washing
ton. It is supposed that the purpose
of the meeting is to dispense with the
unsettled questions in regard to the
round trip to Washington via Buffalo.
The rates over this route are not as
yet entirely settled.
The number of passengers that will
go through Chicago to make connec
tions with Eastern roads will be very
large and arrangements for handling
the traffic will have to be perfected. It
will be necessary to dispose of the
crowds with expedition, and in order
to do so harmoniously previous ar
rangements will have to be made.- Pre
cautions will probably be made to pre
vent individual slashing of rates at
the last moment.
Special to The Globe.
CHICAGO, Sept. 29.—The Grand Army
situation in the Northwest has resulted
in rate demoralization and a meeting of
the Chicago-St. Paul lines has been called
for tomorrow with a view to seeing if the
tide cannot be stemmed. The prevailing
rate from St. Paul to the reunion at
Washington is now $19.85, which is based
upon the rate of $4 from St. Paul to Chi
cago and return. This is a cut of $4.05
in the agreed rate and is charged to the

there is a general feeling that some
thing must be done. In the meantime
