THE WORLD OF SPORT
STAGG TEAM RUINED
BY ELUNK NOTICES
Action of Chicago U. Faculty
Leaves the Coach but
CHICAGO, Jan. s.—Hopes of a success
ful track team at the University of Chi
cago were blasted ■when the batch of
"flunk" notices for the autumn Quarter
were received from the office of the uni
versity recorder. Five of the best track
men in the school fell under In studies,
four of whom have already won points
for the institution in intercollegiate or
Amateur Athletic union contests.
The athletes who failed to maintain a
clean record in their studies in the past
three months are Tommy Taylor, winner
of the quarter-mile run at the last con
ference meet; James Lightbody. junior
Champion miler of the National Amateur
Athletic union; R. B. Kelly, who scored in
both the hurdle races in the conference
meet; A. M. Sullivan, the only high
jumper of class in the track squad, and
The barring of Taylor leaves the uni
versity with no adequate quarter-miler to
represent the institution in the indoor
meets this winter. He is easily head and
shoulders above the other men who are
considered capable of negotiating the dis
tance in fast company and was expected
to win points steadily this winter. He
will be able to clear his record before the
outdoor season opens In the spring, but
In order to do so he will hare little time
left for training.
lightbody is another youngster whose
work was expected to be of the star or
der. Ho is a freshman in the university,
but he competed for the maroon in the
Amateur Athletic union championships In
Milwaukee last September, winning the
junior championship in the mile run and
finishing second to Grant in the senior
championships next day. It is stated that
his deficiency is of such a nature that
he will be unable to compete for six
months, which will make him ineligible
for both indoor and outdoor work.
Kelly is one of the best all-around
athletes in the institution. In addition to
his track work last spring he played
shortstop on the ball team the latter part
of the season and proved himself one of
the best batters in the University league.
Sullivan's work has never been of a
startling nature, though he was counted
upon to score many points in the indoor
work, where ho jumps with greater com
parative skill than in the open field.
The action of the faculty leaves nine
men as a nucleus of the track team.
Capt Clyde Blair and Rice are eligible for
the sprints, and ought to win many
points between them. Catlin in the
hurdles. C'ahil! in the half-mile and
Jlathews. Hall and Henry in the long
distance runs are the other track men
who escaped the peril of the examinations
with whole skins.
In the field events Hugo Friend, the
broad jumper, anil Speik and >-Fat" Max
well in the weight events are men of
lii^li class, with many points already to
tli'ii credit. Several other men have not
yet heard from the deans, and it is pos-
Bible tliat this small starting force may
be increased before the week is out.

OUTLAWS ARE BOLD
Coast League Demands Place
In Major League Class.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Jan. s.—At a
meeting of the financial officials of the
Pacific Coast Baseball league Messrs.
Marley, Harris and Bert were appointed
a committee to meet President Ban John-
Bon, of the American league; James Hart,
of the Chicago Nationals, and Ned Han
lon, of the Brooklyn club, who will soon
come from the East for the purpose of
endeavoring to bring the coast league
into the national agreement. It is un
derstood that the only terms upon which
the coast people will consent will be the
recognition of the Pacific league as a
major organization on equal footing with
the big leagues of the East.
So far as the size of the cities is con
cerned, the coast league is a joke, for its
various towns have a combined popula
tion much smaller than the American as
sociation burgs, or the Eastern league's
circuit, and runs about even with the
If salaries paid are considered, how
ever, the coast outfit is almost on an
even basis with the National and Ameri-
can. It is not at all uncommon for the
California magnates to hand out $2,500
and $3,000 salaries, and many players who
drew big money in the fastest company
now stay on the coast, tempted by larger
hunks of coin.
The quality of the Coast league, owing
to the presence of these players, is but a
shade inferior to the National and Amer
ican game, and is faster than the kind
of ball played in the Amerf^qn Associa
tion or Eastern league. Moreover, the
Coast league stands alone, far removed
from any other circuits, and is in a per
fectly independent and unshakable posi
Deep Motives Suspected.
It is thought that the Coast league's de
mand for recognition as an equal to the
National and American leagues has some
clever underlying motives. Such recog
nition gained, it would, of course, be
absolutely exempt from draft laws and
be in position to draft men on Its own
hook from the minors. It would be in
position to demand an equal voice on all
playing rules, etc.. and would undoubted
ly refuse to give up any of the men it
is now holding—men who are under res
ervation by the Eastern teams. In short,
the Coast league is aiming to maintain
as much independence as at the present
time, and also to gain greater glory and
a more important name.
Although the magnates of the National
and American outfits are anxious to make
peace with the coast people, and thus stop
them from raiding their older brothers, ft
is hardly likely that such recognition as
the Californians demand will be granted.
It would be too much of a surrender to
the ''outlaws," and hence is not a prob

Cecil Gooding, Guard on Michigan Foot-

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. s.—Cecil

Tonight, Trainer Keene Fitzpatrick, of
the University of Michigan, said:
"Any rumor that the bruise sustained in
the Minnesota game had anything to do
with Gooding's death is certainly un
founded. No man could with an In

JOCKEY CLUB GIVES
HOT SPRINGS DATES
New Course Is Allowed Twenty
Racing Days by the
CHICAGO, Jan. s.—Hot Springs will
have a twenty-day race meeting on the
new course now in course of construc
tion there and the new jockey club at
Kanfcas City, the property of Ed Corri
gan and others, will give a spring meet
ing instead of a summer term. This
much was decided yesterday at the regu
lar monthly meeting of the board of
stewards of the Western Jockey club in
the Ashland block.
The delegate from Hot Springs pre
sented the case fully and had in his pos
session a bond of $30,000 with which to
guarantee the payment promptly of all
purses and stakes that they wish to give
as well. The delegates were to have been
Humphrey Devereaux, Joseph A. Murphy
and George B. Sidenor. but the latter was
the only one that appeared in behalf of
the new organization and the stewards
gave him a patient hearing. There was
little else to be done but grant the dates,
because Sidenor showed that all the ie
quirements laid down by the Jockey club
at its December meeting had been met.
The promoters of the new plant asked
for but twenty racing days, beginning
Feb 25, and these were granted, Joseph
A. Murphy, of St. Louis, to be furnished
with the $30,000 bond before Jan. 15.

GEORGE GARDNER AND
MARVIN HART DRAW
Lowell Fighter Has Trouble at the Start,
but Finishes Strong.
BOSTON. Mass., Jan. s.—Marvin Hart,
of Louisville and George Gardner, of
Lowell, boxed fifteen rounds to a draw at
the Criterion Athletic club tonight. Over
5.000 people witnessed the bout, which was
a thoroughly scientific exhibition. During
the first part of the contest it looked as
though Hart would win. In the second
round Gardner, was knocked down twice
and only excellent blocking and holding
save him from a knockout. Gardner came
up strong in the third, but could not land
effectively. In rounds four and five hon
ors were even, but in the sixth Gardner
put in some terrible swings which left
the Kentuckian groggy, the bell saving
him from a knockout. Hart showed his
superiority in the seventh.
The eighth round was the fastest of the
match. At the opening Gardner's holding
prevented his being knocked out, while
at the end of the round the bell alone
From the eighth until the thirteenth
round the fight lagged, but then Gardner
put in some hard pouches. The four
teenth was full of fast blocking, but both
men were tired and their blows lacked
steam. In this round Gardner had a
slight advantage, the bell apparently sav
ing Hart. Both boxers put up a game
exhibition in the final round and Refeiee
Buckley decided the match a draw.

brief to ibe ■ used ■„ by Tthe.lqpf orients of
this nomination when the;. reports of
the committee are presented for "action
of the senate; in executive session.
; First submitted ;in : the brief is ; the
argument that it is not denied .that the
• orders to the. • courts, : ; which were in
troduced by Maj. E. G. Rathbone, were
actually issued •by Gen. .Wood as mili
tary governor. ■' These orders ■ were for
the* admission of ex-parte ": testimony
and in that' connection attention has
been called by the minority to an order
issued by the secretary of war of which
Gen. Wood's orders' are v- declared to
have been a perversion of instructions.
: The minority says that to get around
this order Gen. -. Wood used his authori
ty as military governor to change* the
entire judicial system of the island.
The second 1 count in the brief of the
minority relates to the pardon 'of W.

the postal cases" ; " "of, the character to
help the government's cause." ' '
It is charged further that Gen. Wood
failed to inform the court that he had
promised to ;. pardon Reeves, 1 and that,
in consequence . of , such . failure, the
court regarded Reeves as a defendant
and permitted him to testify without
the solmenlty of an oath.

"Judge Advocate General Dudley

tution was never completed by the sig
nature of the;' Spanish governor gen
eral. The president of the company
states i that the documents of April 27,

to Gen. Wood, it being necessary to do
so considering , the .privilege thereby
conferred, : these documents being ap
proved by Gen. Wood in all.their parts, j
They included the grant of a monop- j
oly for ten years. The claim that the
gambling was an adjunct, ; rather,: than
a part of the game, is disproved by the
president of the Jai; Alai. . The rules
governing the gambling feature are set
forth: in the printed , testimony. - Gen.
Wood did not furnish | full information
for the - action "of the war department.
The publication of the gambling regu
lations was made in the official gazette,
May T9, 1902. Wallis Clearman, with
Tiffany & Co.,' of New ' York, testifies
that about the; 10th or the 12th of that
month an order was cabled to Tiffany
by Mr. Zarasqueta for a silver service,
valued at ; about $5,000, and that he took
such ; service •to Havana, where it was

STEAMER RESEMBLES ICEBERG.
The Rhenania Reaches St. John's in a
Badly Battered Condition.
ST. JOHN'S N. F., Jan. s.—The Ger
man steamer Rhenania, seventeen days
out from Liverpool for Halifax, arrived
here today with six feet of water in her
hold. The vessel met with a terrible
experience, having been buffeted by
the gales during her entire passage.
Huge waves swept the decks, the holcfe
were flooded, the bulwarks smashed,
the deck houses stove in and the steam
pipes damaged. All the upper works
of the steamer suffered serious injury.
During the voyage the Rhenania was
thickly coated with ice, rendering her
almost unmangeable. The shifting of
the cargo caused a list of twenty-flve
degrees and the vessel was for two
days in danger of sinking. On her ar
rival here she resembled an iceberg.
