HANDS OFF THE HATPINS.
New York Aldermen Decide Against
Attempts to Regulation.
New York , Feb. G. The board of
aldermen decided yesterday by a vote
of 37 to 20 not to interfere , nay , not
to try to Interfere with the length of
women's hatpins. Tammany voted
solidly against any "meddling. "
Alderman Dowling , Tammany lead
er , said that he would favor the ordi
nance if ho believed that It would stop
tlio hatpin nuisance , but that ho be
lieved that "the entire police force ,
the national guard and all the battle
ships of the country" could not do
that. The way to cut off the hatpin
point , said Alderman Dowling , was to
get the legislature to pass a bill pro
hibiting the sale of long hatpins. The
ordinance would make the city appear
"The next thing you'll be doing , " he
said , " will be to pass an ordinance
making a man wear carmuffs to keep
him from hearing an invitation to
drink. I'm no suffragette , but I don't
believe in passing a law prohibiting
a woman from keeping her hat on.
If It tot by the mayor , which I don't
believe It would , the courts would
overrule It. "

MORRIS A COSTLY "HOPE. "
A Syndicate Buys Contract on Sapulpa
Giant for $25,000.
Kansas City Star : A contract on
a real "hope" 'Is worth something.
"Billy" McCarncy received a letter
from Sapulpa , Okla. , which informed
him that a trio of Oklahoma oil men
had bought the contract on Carl Mor
ris from J. B. Stone , his first and only
manager , for $25,000. Stone , It is said ,
had a fire years' contract on the
"hope. " The letter to McCarney didn't
say Just how much Morris was to re
ceive under his now management , but
he will have enough managers to keep
"I know that the deal was pending
when 1 was in Sapulpa the other day , "
said McCarney. "They have paid $25 ,
000 all right for tlio contract on Carl.
They bought it simply for speculation.
Morris is to receive a monthly salary
and a percentage of all purses he
fights for. It means , however , that he
won't engage in any more lights for
six months. The men who paid the
big price for hs | contract are going
to hire the best Instructors in the busi
ness and give Carl six months to learn
the fine points of the game. If ho de
velops satisfactorily ho will be match
ed to fight Al Kaufman or some other
good man. If ho wins his first out
under his now management he will
be sent against Jack Johnson. How
ever , they don't intend to match him
against the negro for more than a
year. Outside of the $25,000 paid for
the contract , the oil men expect to
spend as much more on the 'hope'
developing him. "
McCarney said that if Morris devel
oped to the satisfaction of his man
agers ho could get backing for $100-
000 against Johnson.
