• profitable Season President Lennon,
Alone Can Order a Change—Local
Management Wilt Be Compelled to
Present Winning Ball.
If the management of the St Paul
baseball ciub is granted permission to
erect a down-town ball park, St. Paul
will be. erne one of the permanent cit
ies of the American association.
The loaders of the American associa
tion are ambitious men, and as has
been hinted in these columns before,
are anxious to move on to larger .cit
ies. It is more than probable that 1904
•will see new cities in the Hickey
league, but if the down-town park is
secured, St. Paul will not be one of
the cities dropped. Milwaukee fanatics
may be compelled to exert themselves
at the close of the 1903 season.
A number of citizens who are anxious
to hold the team in St. Paul have held
back from the present agitation be
cause they believe the American as
sociation intends to move on to larg
er fields in the early future, and that
securing the down-town park will only
hold St. Paul in the baseball world
for another season.
President's Hickey's announcement to
the Chicago papers that "St. Paul
* promises to continue in the associa
tion for- at least another year" has in
creased the fear of these men, but there
will be no more cause for fear if the
down-town park is secured.
Here for Nino Years.
"If I am permitted to erect the
down-town park," said President Lien
non yesterday when shown President
Hickey's statement, "I will promise the
citizens that St. Paul will be continued
in the American association for the
next nine years at least. Our ten-year
agreement will not expire for nine
years, and while that agreement stands
and my club can show a profit, my club
will remain in St. Paul.
"I feel confident that if the down
town park is secured, all the trouble
about St. Paul will be ended. With a
down-town park we will be able to
show that St. Paul is not a losing team
to the association, and so long as I am
able to send in satisfactory attend
ance reports, so long will the other club
owners be helpless. I have the agree
ment, and they cannot move me out of
here while this town pays as a ball
"And with the down-town park St.
Paul vrill become a profitable town to
the association. It will be up to me
then. I will have my money invested
in that park. You know that without
an association team the park will be

will be up to me to make it return the

PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL NEXT.
Barney Dreyfuss at the Head of the Pro
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.. Dec. 4.—There
will be professional football next season
on a greater scale than ever before. Bar
ney Dreyfuss, of Pittsburg, the baseball
magnate, is to head the movement. It is
claimed that other magnates in other cit
ies will take up the game and put pro
fessfcnal teams in the field. The foot
tiall season does not open until after the
closs of the baseball season and there is
a period between the close and Thanks
giving: when the gate receipts at the parks
are not enough to pay board bills.
It is said that Chicago will be included
in the circuit as will New York, Brooklyn,
Detroit, Baltimore and Washington. There
has always bean an aversion to profes
sional football on the grounds of brutality
and ther^ has been a special effort to
keep the sport a distinctive college sport.
Any movement in the line of professional-
Ism has always been criticised and this
new movement will doubtless meet with
the same burst of disapproval.
College men who read of this proposed
circuit composed of professional teams
will doubtless be a unit in fighting the or
ganization. Professionalism robbed the
colleges of their greatest sport, baseball,
and now when the shrewd athletic man
agers see the amount of coin to be made
out of football, the game will doubtless
go the psaae road. It will weaken the
' college teams, too, for men who are play
ing star rram.es at universities will be of
fered flattering inducements to forget
college loyalty sjnd go into the game for
the coin there 19 in it.
It is to be hoped that the insidious plan
■will fail but when such men as Barney
Dreyfuss ;<.nd other baseball magnates get
their weather eye- on the game the case
is almost hopeless.
UNGLAU3 FORGETS HfS CONTRACT
After Signing With Milwaukee Callfornlan
MILWAUKEE, Wis.. Dec. 4.—First
Baseman Unglaub, of the Sacramento club,
who was signed to play first base for the
Brewers next season, has succumbed to
jthe blandishments of the officers of the
California league and jumped his con
tract, which he gave to Manager Can
tillon in San Francisco three weeks ago.
Unglaub is one of the stars in the Cali
fornia league, and as a base runner, bats
man and fielder caught the eye of Can
tillon when he landed on the Pacific coast
last fall. The new manager of the Brew
ers lost r.o time in raising the offer which
the Sacramento club had made to Ung
laub and succeeded in getting his signa
ture to a contract, but within the past
week the California leaguers have been
camping on the trail of the player, and
last night Treasurer Havenor received a
telegram from Canttllon saying Unglaub
has played the rubberleg.

M'GRAW STILL AFTER LAJOIE.
New York Management Hints That Big
Fellow WiH Sign.
NEW YORK, Dec. 4.—ln addition to
the three big players signed yesterday,
the New York National league club is
after Napoleon Lajoie. That the heavy
hitting Clevelander's signature will be af
fixed to a New York contract before many
days is almost a certainty, it is said here.
Lajoie has been well paid in Cleveland,
and liis cigar store is profitable, but it is
known, it is claimed, he would prefer
playing in New York. He said recently,
so the story goes, that if the New York
club could procure his release he would
gladly come here, and now there is noth
ing to do but give him the salary he asks
and he will be a Giant.
Leaving Lajoie out of the bunch, the
make-up of the New York team next year
would be: Pitchers, Mathcwson, Taylor,
Cronin, McGJnniiy, Orth, Townsend;
catchers, Bresnahan, Warner, Bowerman;
first base, McGann; second base, Elber
feld; third base, George Davis; shortstop,
McGraw; left fic-ld, Delehanty; right field,
Fuitz; conte r field, Mertes.
Col. Rogers is now willing to sell his
Philadelphia franchise, and it is reported
again that John T. Brush has or will soon
procure a controlling interest.

"Perhaps a good, stiff fight in one or two

done at the National league meeting ha
New York, Barney said: "I am in favor
of the election of a president." In refer

said: "We need a secretary, and I think
he should be a newspaper man. I think
it is high time that we had a man to call

CLINGMAN RESERVED HIMSELF.
Manager of 1902 Brewers Sent His Own
Name to Hickey.
MILWAUKEE, Wis. r Dec. 4.—The an
nouncement made some time ago by for
mer Manager Clingman, of the Brewers,
that he was not on the reserve list of the
Milwaukee club, and therefore had a right
to sign with the Columbus team for next
season, has elicited from the letter files
of President Hickey, of the' American, as
sociation, a piece of evidence that he is
not only on the Milwaukee club's reserve
list, but ho placed his name on the list
with his own hands. When Treasurer
Havenor heard that his shortstop and for
mer manager had elected to joi nthe Co
lumbus team next season he wrote to
President Hickej' to ascertain whether his
name was on the Milwaukee reserve list,
and last night he received from i.he pres
ident of the association the following let
ter, which was written Sept. 13:
"As "per section 30 of the constitution
of the American association, the fol

ON POSTAL REFORM
Postmaster General Has Not the Power to

WASHINTON, D. C, Dec. 4.—Prac
tically the -whole policy the postofflce
department in its recent classification re
forms is involved in three decisions ren
dered today by tl»e district court of ap
peals. In two of the castes the decisions
are against the postoflftce department
and in the other the government is sus
tained. All throe cases,will be appealed
to the United States supreme court, pend
ing whose final action tha classification
reform policy, under which many publica
tions have been excluded from the sec
ond-class privileges pi-obably will remain
in suspension. i _
The eases decided adversely to the
government are those of. the National
Railway Publication 'company and the
Lailway List company." The department
is unheld in the case of the Chicago
Business college. The lower court is sus
tained In each of the three eases.
The court's opinion in the Railway
Publication company's cases holds that
congress has not committed to the post
master genera!, or anyone else, the deter
mination of what should be carried in the

ter, that power being reserved exclusively
to congress, which makes the classifica
tion. The court says that it may be that
the classification is not as definite as it
might be and that the privilege is grossly
abused, but congress itself made the clas
sification and it is not competent for the
postmaster general to add anything to the
statute rr to take anything from it.
Similar cases are pending in the lower
court and probably now will be pressed

ST.THOMAS SPEAKS OUT
HOLES ARE POKED IN MANY
Statement of^ Fargo Agricultural Col
lege Is Styled Lop-Sided and Un
sportsmanlike — Shattuck Denied
Right to Figure in State Intercolle
giate League Finish.
Having waited until the claims to
the different championship honors had
been filed by the high school and col
lege teams of this section of the West,
St. Thomas college now rises to con
tribute a few observations relative to
the real worth of these aforesaid
claims. Manager William H. Grace, of
the St. Thomas team, is spokesman for
his college. He says:
"Some recent reports regarding the
outcome of this season's football among
the high schools and colleges of the
Northwest do not err on the score of
modest assertion. These entertain no
scruple in showing how some two or
three institutions completely carried off
within their own sphere all the honors
of the entire season. It may be that
these teams accomplished what they
state, but the schedule of the season
', does not substantiate these pretentious
Dakota Aggies Bold.
"Now that the season is over, the
Fargo Agricultural college comes bold
ly forward and claims that among the
teams of the Northwest it ranks to the
Minnesota university. Its unbroken
record of six games seems to have gen
erated the idea that it thereby becomes
the undisputed holder of the intercol
legiate championship, not alone of its
own state, but also of others. This
conclusion it reaches by a process of
'comparative scores' —a process which
looks well on paper, but in reality
•stands for naught. It defeated Ham
line and Carleton, not, however, when
these teams were in their best form;
but apart from this fact it had no en
counter with the other three colleges
which complete the Minnesota league.
What right the Agricultural college
has to claim the Minnesota honors in
the face of 1 this evidence is hard to un
derstand. It is hoped that the other
colleges! of the state will join St. Thom

CHINA FOR SALE
Historic Tableware Soon to Be on
Market for Highest Bidder.
The probabilities are, says the
Washington Post, that on the arrival
of the new "Roosevelt set" (the Wedg
wood pottery described in the New
York Times), there will be a sale of
White house property, at which a large
number of pieces of the Lincoln, Grant
and Hayes sets will be sold. Col
lectors, bargain hunters and society
people are on the gui vive of expec
tancy, looking forward to an official
announcement of the auction, which
probably will take place the latter part
of next February or early in March.
The sale will include the old White
house china, furniture, carpets and all
manner of interior furnishings.
The "Roosevelt set" is the first serv
ice of official queensware that has >een
ordered since 1876. It will be used,
not as the every-day service of the
president and his family, but only for
state dinners, banquets and occasions
of ceremony. The last official china
service purchased was the famous
Hayes set, which was made by the
Havilands, of Limoges, France. Since
then the steward of the White house
at state dinners has been obliged to
draw upon the remnants of the Lin
coln, Grant and Hayes sets to complete
the requirements of the table.
Col. Theodore A. Bingham, custodian
of the White house, in his report of the
care and maintenance of the presiden
tial mansion for 1901, says that at the
end of that year there were 143 pieces
of the Lincoln, 125 pieces of the Grant,
371 of the Hayes, 30 of the Arthur,
1,745 of the Cleveland, 459 of the Har
rison and 321 of the MeKlnley sets, re
maining in the White house. Although
the first lady of th£ land is powerless
to give away a single piece of official
china, she nevertheless has the power
to order a thing sold if it fails to suit
her taste. Curtains and rugs that have
cost hundreds or thousands of dollars
have more than once been put up at
auction because the color failed to sat
isfy the taste of the mistress of the
White house. Mrs. McKinley was quite
fastidious in this respect
The last sale of White house china
and furniture took place on Dec. 20,
1890, Joseph W. Hatcliffe being the
auctioneer. A large number of society
people, collectors, curio dealers and
members of the Sons and Daughters
of the American Revolution were on
hand and the bidding was stiff and;
Local curio dealers never receive less
than $20 and $30 for pieces of the Lin
coln set, and a plate has to be pretty
badly damaged to sell as low as $16
or $17. Pieces of the Hayes set sell for
$10 and $12, the Grant set $20, and for
plates, cups and saucers of Mrs. Har
rison's "golden rod set," $5. Pieces of
the Jackson and Buchanan sets are
well nigh worthless on account of
their clumsy character, poor ware and
lack of design, selling for almost any
thing the buyer is willing to pay.
Plates of the Pierce set bring about $6,
while, as a matter of course, high
prices prevail in the case of the Wash
ington and Jefferson sets, pieces of
which are exceedingly rare.
TYPHOID FEVER DUE
TO EATING SHELL FISH
London Physician Thinks He Has Found
Cause of the Disease.
In a special report on the outbreak of
typhoid fever In Southend during June
and July, 1902, Dr. J. T. C. Nash, the
medical officer of health, expresses his
conviction that typhoid fever is often
caused by shell fish. He maintains that
the time is more than ripe for special
legislation to prohibit in the interests of
the public health the laying down of ed
ible shell fish in sewage-polluted creeks
or other dangerous localities. Many in
stances of typhoid fever have been traced
to cockles and in one case an investiga
tion revealed the fact that the cockles
came from Leigh. Some of these cockles
were submitted to the Jenner institute for
bacteriological investigation, with the re
sult that bacilli of the colon series were
discovered as well as tne typhoid bacil
lus itself. It is clear from this that the
usual method of "cooking;" cockles is
quite insufficient to sterilize the interior
fluids of the shell fish.
A significant fact is that typhoid fever
is about three times as prevalent in the
districts bordering on the Thames as it
is in the rest of the county of Essex, and
in this area of excessive prevalence, as
pointed out by Dr. J. C. Thresh, the great
est excess is constantly in the districts
at the mouth of the river. Dr. Nash sug
gests that the reason lies in the fact that
shell fish are more largely consumed in
this "area of excessive prevalence," and
he believes that if the eating of shell fish
conld be abandoned the incidence of ty
phoid fever would lessen by fully one
half. It is satisfactory to learn that steps
are being take,n by shell fish dealers to
lay their cockles in irreproachable sur

MORE THAN A DREAM.
Live up to the highest that's In you.
Be true to.the voice in your souL
Let love and your bettor self win you,
And follow them on to the goal.
Afar in the path of Endeavor
The temples of Happiness gleam.
They stand as a promise forever
That heaven is more than a dream.
We fall in the moments of weakness,
Borne down by the passion of sin;
Acknowledge the error with meekness
And strengthen the guard from within.
The lusts of the brute we inherit
Must cower and shrink from the light
That flows from the throne of the spirit
And shows us the path to the right.
I know not the kingdom Immortal;
Yet feel in my Innermost soul
That, Death's not a wall but a portal.
Through which lies an infinite goal.
I know not the glory supernal,
Nor paths that the angels have trod;
Yet something within is eternal
And grows in the sunlight of God.
I know with the wisdom of Sorrow,
The lessons I've learned by the way:
The fruits that we gather tomorrow
Are grown from the seeds of today.
Life's page we have blotted and checker
No power on earth can restore,
We write an indelible record,
To blight or to bless evermore.
With voices seraphic and tender
Our loved ones are -calling afar;
With light that Is golden fin splendor
TVuth shfnes like a mystical star.
The veil of the Silence la riven,
The banner of Hope fa unfurled;
And love, through the portals of heaven,
Illumines the night of the world.

THAT ARE STARTLING
An Interdenominational Committee
Engaged in the Work of Rescue Ex- '
poses the Iniquity in Its Most Glaring
Form—How the Habit Is Acquired.
Special to The Globe.
NEW YORK, Dec. 4.—With the
steady increase of the alcohol habit
to contend with on one hand it now ap
pears that we have a national men
ace of even greater importance in the
shape of the morphine habit, which f3
spreading with fearful rapidity.
It is stated on the best of authority
that over a million persons, or one in
every hundred of the inhabitants of
the United States, are addicted to this
seductive form of inebriation.
This statement is made by an inter
denominational committee of clergy
men organized to bring about the sup
pression of the drug habit.
It is a pathetic story which these
good Samaritans tell of the wrecks
which this newest curse of the human
race is making, a story now for the
first time told from an authoritative
source and giving terrific significance
to the facts of this widespread deprav
The cause of making the matter pub
lic is an appeal by the board for funds
to provide refuges and homes for the
helpless wrecks of the sinister habit,
where they may be nursed back to
health and, if possible, cured of their
appetite for the poison.
The basis of cure which is being
used by the committee is a. German
remedy which has been used with good
effect by missionaries in China to effect
cures of the opium habit and has also
proved itself effective in the cure of
cases in New York. An eminent phy
sician who had become a morphine
wreck has been completely restored
to his health by means of the remedy
and has joined the committee with the
intention of devoting his career to the
salvation of others who have fallen into
the same habit.
It amost invariaby happens that per
sons addicted to the use of the hypo
dermic syringe acquired it from having
prescriptions from physicians who by
this means sought either to allay suf
fering or induce sleep.
The committee affords to these un
fortunates the benefit of the remedy,
friendship, food, clothing and shelter.
It has already on record hundreds of
cases of cures, many of the sufferers
rescued and cared for by it having
been restored to positions of impor
tance which they had lost through in
dulgence in the habiL
A peculiar feature of these cures is
that one out of every .three persona
cured has been a physician. Physi
cians, it is declared, suffering or worn
out by overwork, have become the
most frequent victims.
It has long been known that the
habit was very prevalent among physi
cians and it has doubtless become so
because of the long hours and ex
haustive nature of the duties they are
called upon to perform. One physi
cian particularly well known in New
York had become such a slave to the
habit that his friends were seriously
considering placing; him in a sanitar
ium when the committee placed their
facilities at his service. He has re-'
sumed his place in the profession and
appears to be winning his way back
to the former place of esteem in which
he was held both by his colleagues and
The patients who seek the aid of
the committee are only in rare in
stances from the lower walks of life.
Next to the physicians in numbers
come the actors, and after them per
sons of various professions, those be
longing to the literary field being the
fewest in numbers.
Some of the cases brought to the no
tice of the committee are so advanc
ed as to be apparently hopeless, but
under the influence of the treatment a
gradual restoration of the faculties
commences and continues until the
cure is complete.
The work of the committee ia at the
present naturally confined and it re
quests funds in order to carry it on on
a more general scale. The demand for
the work of rescue is enormous. Worn.-,
en are particularly prone to become
victims of the habit and the number of
unfortunates belonging to this sex in
the city of New York Is said to be
away up in the thousands.
There is absolutely no place for this
class of women to go to for treatment
at the present time and one of the
things most needed is a refuge, espe
cially designed for the accommodation
One of the members of the commit
tee informed the writer that the me
nace to society caused by the spread of
the morphine habit could only be re
motely suggested until the extent of
the evil could be fully exposed. He
said that its effects on the future gen
eration could only be hinted at, but
that it is well known the physiological
action of the drug is of such a char
acter as to suggest grave deficiencies
in the children of persons addicted to
the habit. —George Morris.
