American Association will Ask
for Consent of Big Leagues

Chicago, Dec. 20. American Associ-
1 S 4Vial
at ion magnates yesteruay -"
meeting at the Auditorium annex
unanimously voted to enter Chicago if
it could be done by pacific means, it.
however, the organization fails in this,
it figures that it will be time enougn
later to decide on the method of ac
tion. President Joe O'Brien was ap
pointed a committee of one to ask per
mission from the national commission
Jan. C at Cincinnati to enter a team
in Chicago. Should the executive Dooy
turn down his request, as is likely, the
association will in all probability de
cide to come in anyway. President
Johnson of the American league and a
viiq nnrf n I
member of the national commission,
whpn advised of the action, said that
the executive organization had no jur
isdiction in tho matter.
In case their request is turned down, I
it is argued by some of the magnates J
that the time for fitting up a park J
here would be too short for putting
in a team next season, so it would
have to be postponed until 1909. Oth
ers took the stand that Coniiskey had
a still shorter period for fitting up his
grounds, yet managed to do so suc
cessfully when the White Sox broke
into tho city.
Other HiiMlneM Short.
Aside from the discussion of the
Chicago proposition the association's
business was. transacted speedily. M.
E. Cantillon was reelected vice presi
dent and ' the directors reelected
George Tebeau as their chairman
President' O'Brien appointed Messrs
Tebeau. Bryco and Cantillon as
schedule committee, which was in
structed to draft a 154 game schedule,
opening April 15. . Whether or not the
committee was instructed to schedule
dates in Chicago was not, disclosed.

Fight Followers at Sea on Prob

Papke Battle . '
Result Will Help Clear Middleweight
Muddle- -Tommy Ryan Ready to
- Emerge from Retirement.
Milwaukee, Wis., Dec. 20. The eyes
the pugilistic world ara centered on
Milwaukee. Fight fans all over the
country are awaiting the result of the
battle between Hugo Kelly and Billy
Papke. the Illinois thunderbolt, at
bchlitz park tonighL Milwaukee has
had fights and fights some good, some
bad, some indifferent but never anv
that attracted half the attention drawn
by tonight's affair.
The battle will not settle the world's
middleweight championship, but it will
do more toward solving that problem
tnan any fight that has taken place in
the last two years. Whoever wins will
oe closer to the top of the middle
weight heap than any fighter in the
country. Tommy Ryan is said to have
outgrown ms usefulness in the ring.
Dut denies it, and Jack ("Twin") Sulll
van nas grown too heavy, leaving Kel

Either Papke -or Kelly probably will
De eliminated tonight, leaving the
championship question to be decided
by Ketchell and the winner. That is
why the fight is attracting so much
attention and why crowds from Illinois
and Wisconsin towns are flockin
Take Your Choice.
Critics are divided in their opinion
as to tne outcome of the fight. A
great piany close students of the game
pick Kelly on account of his greater
cleverness and experience. They fig
ure Papke is too young and too crude
i eei in any enecuve mows oh so
classy a veteran as the Italian. -Yet
there are others just as well qualified
to judge who think the Illinois cyclone
Is Irresistible that youth and strength
will win for him.
Both men announce themselves in
perfect condition. They are .both down
to weight and are resting quietly
fapke experienced no trouble in get
ting down to weight. He can scale
close to 150 pounds without much ef
fort, so that 154 at 3 o'clock will Iphvp
him strong. Kelly had to work a bit!
harder to reach the required notch, but
did it easily enough.
Ityaa Catrhen Fever Ania.
Chicago, Dec. 30. Tommy Ryan has
the fight fever and says that if any
club will offer a. .suitable purse he will
show he still .is . the middleweight
champion by meeting the winner of
the Keliy-Papke fight, or, if the winner
of that bout meets Ketchell. he will
fight him. Ryan paid yesterday:
I am glad so much interest has
been worked up over the Kelly-Papke
battle. I hope the fight will turn out
a tough one. But I cannot allow it
to go through without saying tfiey are
not fighting, for the middleweight
championship. I am still the middle
weight champion and I am ready to
defend my title as soon as a likely
opponent turns up in whom some pro
moter has enough confidence to offer
a good purse. " .
"I am not in a hurry and do not
want to throw cold water on any mid
dleweight aspirants. If Stanley Ketch
ell gets a match -with tomorrow
night'9 winner I will wait and fight the
winner of that fight, but if the public
demands that I fight the winner and a
fit offer is made I am ready to sign
articles. I iTon't care which one wins."
