baseball men here yesterday following
the announcement that President M.

from a well known baseball man of

It is not that the little party caus
ed any damage to the school prop
erty through the affair but because
of the demoralizing effect that it has
on the student body. It is to pre-
serve the clean atmosphere of the
schcel that Principal Burton intends
to inflict punishment on the mem
bers of the party. The school has
had a l.ocst ;n this line within re
cent years and tho community has
commended the school authorities for
it. To maintain this reputation, the
school authorities will deal out pun-
1 ishment to those in the school who

were accused of making a public dec

negroes, whereupon a policeman was
called to arrest the baseball men. Mc

because the policeman was a negro.
Two white policemen were then called

Jeffersonville, Ind , Dec. 5. Hopes
of regaining the lightweight champion
ship again shortly went glimmering
for Battling Nelson last night, when
the best he could get was a draw with,
Andy Bezenah of Cincinnati in a fist
10-round bout. The ex-champion did
not show good form and Bezenah kept
boring in all the way. In the 10th
round Nelson tried for a knockout, but
could not land. Both stood together
and slugged frequently, with honors
even. Nelson failed to show his old-
time punch at any period of the fight.

nervousness was to blame for his Jiot

no trouble in making the weight.

AT THE GRAND.
"The Girl in the Train," the
reigning musical comedy success of
Europe, comes to the Grand, Daven
port, next Thursday evening, direct
from the Globe theatre, New York.
"The Girl In the Train," under the
original Viennese title of "Die Ge-
schledene Frau," is being played all
over Europe at the present time. It
was written by Leo Fall, composer
of "The Dollar Princess." and Vic
tor Leon, Jbthor of "The Merry
Widow," while Harry B. Smith has
adapted it for the American stage.
The story concerns an adventure in
a sleeping car. A young husband,
leaving his wife unexpectedly behind
him on a railway journey, gallantly
offers bis stateroom on a sleeping car
to a beautiful actress. The wife
thinks the circumstances enough to
Justify her in suing for divorce. Olga
Steck and Violet Seaton will appear
as the wife and the actress. There
is a chorus of beautiful girls and
an augmented orchestra. The pro-
ducticn is made on the usual lavish
scale for which all the Broadway
productions are noted. The music
is said to be the best Mr. Fall has
ever written; it has that charming
Viennese swing in the waltz num
bers and the score throughout
shows a technical finesse almost un
known to musical comedy.

Argentine rivers, and who represents
the big boating Interests in that

these men are engaged in the packet
business on the Yukon river, Alaska,
during the summer and are old heads
at the game, having had years of ex
perience on the Mississippi before en

to Brown, it is a difficult proposition
to obtain men of the proper calibre
and experience in Argentina, and for
this reason he is making his present

the proposition, as he had an excel
