Jack Meyers, a full-blooded Indian,
is one of the Indian battery of the St
Paul team. Like 15 Roy, he is a col
lege man. He played with the Butte
team of the Northwestern league last
year, and was purchased by the St.
Paul team. Meyers has a wonderful
arm, is a fine hitter, and watches the
bases closely. He weighs over 200
pounds when in condition, and is sure
to go into faster company. The St.
Paul team has already received sev
eral offers for him.

ager, Harry Gilmore, Jr., were among
the visitors at the Ketchel camp yes
terday, and though McFarland would
not talk, he-,seemed to have a high
opinion of the big i westerner. The
great fault found with Ketchel is his
slender legs, out of proportion for a
man of his shoulders, and some critics
fear he will be weakened easily on this
account. - ; ..

FIGHT ON IN IOWA
Primaries Today to Settle Con

FOR SEAT IN THE SENATE
Also Test of New Law for Selection of

Des Moines, Iowa, June '2. United
States Senator Allison, after one of the
longest and most effective careers as
an American statesman, today is en
gaged in a fight for his political life.
in which Governor Cummins seeks to
win his seat. The fight is being car
ried on at the polls, under Iowa's re
markable new primary law.
Senator Allison has always been a
"standpat" legislator on the tariff; but
at the primaries his campaign mana
gers, having assured the voters of his
reciprocity and revision sentiments,
principally have to defend against an
attack made on account of his age.
CmiiiiilnM lia Many AricumrntM.
Cummins thinks he has won the
right to a seat In the senate; that Al
lison has had enough, and should re
tire in favor of a more active man;
and that Allison's conversion to the
progressive spirit of reciprocity, tariff
revision, rate legislation, and other
new ideas has been a matter of politi
cal exigency rather than of heart con

though leaders say the vote shall be
regarded as final, the prediction has
been made that, , whatever the result,
the law will have to be tested by the
courts before either faction will accept

The new primary law provides for
nomination by vote of candidates' for
United States senator, elector of pres
ident and vice president and all state
offices which are filled by direct vote
The law commands that the primar-
ies of the two parties shall be held at
the same time and as each voter seeks
to pass the rail he shall call for a bal
lot or tne party to which he wishes o
belong and his declaration of party af
filiation shall be recorded on the books
