rounds of his fiht here last night
with "knockout" Brown. The arm

Inconclusive. While Brown received
the popular decision because he forc

howed excellent spirit in the latter
rounds and gave evidence that in a
longer fight he might have a decided
advantage. There was little of scien

New York, March 4. Knockout
Brown, the tow-headed little New
York lightweight, pained a popular de
rision our Ad Wolast, the world's
lightweight champion, in a slashing
10-routid bout last night at the Nat:on
al Sporting club of America. Three
weeks ago Brown fought Wolsrast at
Philadelphia and the crowd of 3.000
which saw him fight la3t night voted
him a victory, although the law re
quires that no decision be rendered-
Brown forced the fighting from the
start and on the whole gave more
punishment than he received. In the
flinches Wolgast showed superior
ringmansliip with his infight. His tac
tics were so roub, however, that they
brought hisses from the snK,tators.

Neither man was in distress at any
time during the bout and no blood
was drawn. In the last round Brown
was backing toward the ropes as Wol
gast rushed him. They clinched and
rolled through the ropes together and
Brown would have fallen from the
ring had not a cluster of hands shov

baseball on the town lota until he won
fame as a crackajack amateur in the
pitching line. In 1896 he broke into
the professional game as a twirler
with Minneapolis which was then in
the Western league. He made good
and remained there two years. In his
first year of league ball he was 11th
among a field of 61 pitchers in the
league and he hit an even .300. In
1&98 be was sold to Dubuque and
with that club he ranked as third
pitcher in the league. In 1899 and
1900 he played with Youngstown,
Ohio, in the Interstate league. In 1901
be was sick and did not play ball but
the following year he played with Far
go in the Northwestern league and did
so well that in the fall he was sold to
Spokane for a goodly sum. The next
two years, he played the outfield most
of the time although he still pitched a
little. lu his second year with Spo
kane he batted .U6t and lead the
league in number of sacrifice hits and
stolen bases. In the fall he was sold
to the Chicago Cubs and he joined
that club In the spring but failed to
strike his gait at once and after sev
eral weeks was traded to Minneapolis.
He had a disagreement about salary
with the latter club and the result was
he Jumped the team and went to Salt
Lake City to play in the outlaw
league. This brought him a suspen
sion of three years. He played at
Salt Lake City two years during which
time he continued the great batting
record. In 1907 he was reinstated un
der the national agreement and went
to Spokane where he played a year
and half of the next season, taking
r.ick In the middle of the 1908 sche
dule. In 1909 he was still recovering
from his illness and rather than run
chances of playing, he confined him
self to umpiring, securing a job in
the Northwestern league. The follow
ing year he managed Calgary in the
western Canada league and made
good at the jump. Although he did
not play throughout the entire season
he got into toe game often enough to
demonstrate that he had not lost his
batting eye and for the first few
weeks of the schedule during which
time he played steadily, be lead the
ieague in hitting.
Manager Carney has been In the
city nearly a week now and he has
been busy signing players and getting
strings on others. He likes the city
and the club officials very mnch al
ready and states that he is Immense
ly pleased with Island City park. He
clasrif.es it as the best minor league
park he has ever seen and It might
be added that he has seen most of
them. He has the well wishes of ev
ery fan here and those who have met
him are assured that he will deliver
Thanks to the efforis of Manager'
Carney, the Islanders already have a
goodly list of players lined up for the
coming season and it begins to look
as though the iong delay in securing
a head for the club is not going to
handicap the team much after all.
The list as made public by Manager
Carney last night Includes the fol
lowing players, some of them well
known here and others unknown :
Ralph Jordon, J. H. Minger, Fred
Fisher. James Wilson, Joe Custer, all
catchers; Roy Snyder, Harry Lovell,
and Outfielder Harley Wagner, James
McCafferty, a pitcher, Fred Ochs, Wil
liam Jacobsen, L. D. Bush, an outfield
er; William Hunter, Marshall Ccmin
gor, Harry Kelly, Joe Slattery, Walter
Queisser, Otto Vogel, Frank Lakaff,
Ike Okker, and Olozier, pitchers, and
Stropes an outfielder. These will not
be all on the list, however, as the
manager is after several others among
whom are two fast lnflelders and an
! outfielder, whose names he does not
care to make public. Tho latter has
a record that looks good as he batted
! .291 last year, made 17 assists from tho
i outfield and stole 54 bases.
j 19 OUTSPOKE MAX.
j Carney has made a hit with local
j baseball officials, he having given
j them the impression that he Is not on
ly a good manager of ball players but
one who will look out for the finances
;cf the club as well. A letter he wrote
I to one of the men mentioned in the
j above list shows to what extent he
'speaks his mind. The player had wrlt
i ten and asked for an increase in the
'amount which the club officials had
: put in his contract. Manager Carney
! looked the player up and wrote back
'"If you will save the nerve you di3
Iplay in making this request and use it
on the ball field to win games with,
'I will make a champion pitcher out
'of you." He didn't mean it unkindly
and it was probably taken in the spir
1 it in which it was given but at any
irate it expressed his sentiments.
j JAIOHSKN SIliNS CONTRACT.
i Manager Carney- received tbe con
tract of Big Liil Jacobsen this morn
1 ing all signed up in approved manner.
jThe big fellow is not going to be
I used behind the bat this year as Car
ney has an idea he can make a pitch
er out of him. It will be remembered
that Jacobsen was signed as a pitcher
but turned into a backstop and out
fielder because of the long string of
i experienced pitchers which Manager
Tlghe tad when Kill reported. It Is
well known that the Geneseo boy has
a wonderful arm and under training
such as Carney can givo him, ha
ought to become some twirler.
Roy Snyder has refused to sign the
contract which was sent to him. He
wrote to Manager Carney this morn
ing and announced that he would
have to be. given more salary or he
will refuse to play.

The sojihomore basket ball team of
Augustana college defeated the busi
ness department team last night by a
score of i: to 20 in a snappy game.
Although the commercials played
good ball the college class team was
too much for them. This was the
first of a series of intorscholastic
games to be played at the college to
decide which class has tho best live.
In the first half both teams played
a closer guarding game than in the
second hair, the half ending with the
sophs in the lead by a score of l. to
8. The college class quintet had no
trouble in keeping their lead in the
second half. The lineup:
Sophomores .lohison, renter; Paul
sen and Andreen, forwards: Han.sen,
LinJvall and Nelson, guards.
Business Qnist. center: Swar.son
and Borden, forwards; Ostrom and
The freshmen and sophomores will
clash on the basketball floor March 14.
Ttis is the most Interesting Interclass
game of the season, as the rivalry be
tween the two classes is very intense.
The quintets cf both classes have
been practicing diligently all season
ia preparation for this game. Both
teams are confident of victory.
The basketball season is never
complete at Augustana without a
friendly game between the two rival
literary societies, the Phrenokosmian
and tlie Adeiphic. For years this
game has always been the grand fi
nale of the season. Last night the
Adelphic society issued a challenge to
the Phrenokosmians for a game to be
played sometime after the big Illinois
Wesleyan game on the 17th. The chal
lenge was accepted. Paul Andreen
was elected captain of the Adelphic
team and Bob Bengtson, manager.
The older society has not selected Its
i captain and manager yet.
The members of the varsity team
are about equally divided between the
two lits. The Phrenos, the older soel
iety, have on th?ir membership roll,
; Captain Iirson and Sten. forwards;
'and Andersen, guard; while P. An

and Robb and Bengtson. guards, be
