Neither eleven has been scored on
this year. In fact the Independents
have never been defeated or scored
upon, flnce t'.ie team was' organized,
two years ago.
The rivalry between the two camps
Is Intense. Although there is no bad
Mood, the fact remains that any one
member of either eleven would rather
lose an arm than go down to defeat.
No rough work Is expected, but It is
certain that there will be no pink tea

gations are prepared . to go in and
fight to the last ditch, and there will
oe no let-up in the attack or defense

The 1913 season in the American

a financial standpoint, in the history
of the organisation, according to
President Johnson. The impression

season, but the league chief rises to

FEDERALS MAY OPEN
WAR; MEET TODAY
Indianapolis, Ind , Nov. 1. A declar
ation of war upon organized baseball
is expected to be the result of the
meeting of the magnates of the Fed
eral league, who will convene here
today for a two day's session. This
seemed to be the undivided opinion
of the organization's sympathizers and
promoters who arrived last night.
The recent signing of Shortstop Al
cock of the Indianapolis Federal
league club by the Chicago American
league team has brought the matter
to a point where war must be declared
or the Federal league suffer from the
invasion of major league clubs, rep
resentatives of the new organiaation
said. Just what plan of action the
magnates will adopt none of them
would say last night.
In the contest for the presidency
of the league it appeared that Edward

to the meal provided by the board of

that a stop of one hour would bt made.
In the meantime the local Elks w ay

nearly 3 o'clock in the mornnig.

Sunshine and crowds met the tour

premium, but the players were taken

up performance yesterday afternoon.
Four hundred bu-ebal! hungry bank
clerks had circulated a petition not' to
begin the game until 3:30, consequent
ly it was necessary to dress on the

to make arrengements to continue the
trip around the world. Tris is stuck 1
on being with rea! ball players after
the disastrous season of the 1912 cham
pions, and he is just as crazy to go
around the world. It was the same
when the Sox left Walter Johnson at
Muskogee. Johnson told one of his
friends m the team that if it had not
been for Griffith' positive orders he
woull Jump on the train and follow
the troupe around the world.
CAI, GETS APPLICATIONS.
Johnson and Speaker are not the
only ones who want to make the trip
now. Callahan has beeq flooded with
applications and as he has still room
for possibly two more at the windup,
he will make the selection between
here and the coast.. Third base is
about the only position in question,
although he might bet one other extra
player. Tex Russell will rejoin the
Sox at Houston Sunday, and now ex
pects to make the trip to the coast.
This should give Callahan the edge on
pitchers for the remainder of Cie jour
ney. It looked like easy sailing for Chris
ty at the start, although he gave one
base on balls in the second. A bobble
behind him in the third paved the way
for one run. The same thing happened
in the fourth, Libert letting the ball
go through his legs Then began such
a pounding of his benders as has not
happened to Matty in several years
Four doubles and three singles came
in rapid succession, but Matty stuck
to the job and finally got three outs,
but not before 11 men had faced him.
He came up smiling in the next,
only to hit Leverenz after two were
out. Weaver scored a triple to center
and a single by Rath made it two
more, but for tha-rest cf the matinee
there was nothing doing with his
Leverena only had one bad inning,
in the sixth, when three runs rolled
over the pan. A triple, single and
two jases on balls were the principal
factors In the fray. He was slightly
wild, but escaped for the rest of the
game. The score:

Stagg's Eleven Has Chance to

Football, from the standpoint of

the big nine collegiate conference,
should go into the semi-finals today.
With two inter-conference games bill-
ed and the four teams entered stUl
wun c,ean slales s lar as lne western
collegiate body is concerned, the two
real contenders should be determined
by the simple process of elimination.
When Chicago n.eet Illinois at Mar
shall field and Minnesota Invades
Camp Randall for its annual argument
with Wisconsin, the quartet of "Big
Nine" elevens still In the running will
get into action. Should Chicago de
cisively defeat Illinois, as all advance
predictions of coaches and critics have
prognosticated, then the Maroons will
stand out preeminent in the western
conference, almost in a position where
they can dispute any claim to "Big
Nine" titles. Should either Wisconsin'
or Minnesota be trimmed the defeated
tcim will be out of the running for
this ye .r at least.
MAROONS IX FHOXT RANK.
Chicago seems to be the only con-
ference team with an outside chance!
of grasping the central western grld-
iron laurels as well as the conference
crown. The defeat of Minnesota by'
Nebraska and Wisconsin's subsequent
loss to the Michigan Aggies has elim
inated those two teams and has placed
the Lansing farmers away out in front.
Chicago to keep pace with the Aggie
eleven will have to defeat both Wis
consin and Minnesota. Nebraska also
is deserving of some recognition as
they are yet undefeated, but the corn-'
buskers have no strong teams to meet
There are a host of interesting baN
ties cn the cards for today. Besldes-
i the two important conference clashes,'
Notre Dame will try to uphold the'
Btanding of the west against Wcst:
Point and Michigan will lock (horn'
with Syracuse in its annual start after
the eastern schools. All ot the big'
eastern universities will get Into. ac
tion with Harvard and Cornell fea
turing the day's program. ,
Follower of Notre Dame are enthus
iastic over the chances of their team
against the Army. Many optimistic:
statements have been made about the
exceptional ability of Dorals, Eicken
laub, I'll ska and Captain Rockne.
Coach Harper says that no team in
the country can stop hfs combination,
and he Is open In his assertions that
Notre Dame will defeat the Army by
a decisive score. The game will ba
watched with unusual interest 1-jcallyJ
as both Dorals and Eichenlaub have!
stamped themselves as two of the best
back field men in the game.
VOST HAC K IX STH1UE. j
Michigan Is back in the game again
with eleven fighters of the Yost type,
and from now on the wolverines will
be a hard team to keep down. Jimmy
Craig, the speed marvel of the back,
field, will improve the scoring chances
of the Ann Arbor aggregation 50 per
cent and also will bring confidence
to the other players that will help. ' '
Wiiconsin and Minnesota are due'
for a battle royal, with honor.; even
as to ability and the only advantage'
lying with the badgers playing on their?
home lot. Both teams have been
shaken by early season slumps and re-
versals of form, but each should be
ready for a desperate encounter now.'
Chicago has rounded into a real foot
ball team, a machine well oiled and
carefully constructed by a great build
er of such ed flees. The loss of Vru-.
wink will be felt, as most of Stagg's,
trick plays evolved around thla Bter-
ling-player, but Huntington will prove'
almost as good on the defense. Tim,
veteran back field witii Captain Nor-,

worthy of any kind of opposition.
