0P0RTIHG HEWS. Comiskey Sells His Interest in Chicago Club. Griffith "and Callahan Part Own ers of White Stockings. TWO STAR TWIIILERS fchoivs Policy of the New Amer . . ican League . . Hare Managers 'Who Are financially Interested.. . Chicago, April 10. When Charley Co miskey returned from St. Louis he hai two partners associated with him in the ownership of the white stockings. These men are Clark O. Griffith and James J. Callahan, the two star twirlei"s Who let Jim Hart's National League aggregation to accept ' berths with the 'Amtricaa Ltaguf. This is the magnet which drew Griffith to the new organization and prompted Callahan to turn djwn alt overtures from Hart even when asked to name his own terms. It expluina the air of tranquillity v ith whichCallahan viewed the Bkuation after breaking with the National League and while still unsign ed with Comiskey. During the past month Callahan has been fledged to the American League but no written contract existed. He had not signed with Comiskey, and the hitch which the public did not know wa3 w hat share of the club Griffith and Cal lahan should buy and what they should ray for it. SHARE REMAINS A SECRET. It has been known to a limited few tnat Griffith and Callahan were negoti ating a small loan to put with their own ravings to make this investment, but unless the parties to the agreement see tit to make public the share and the fi mount it bids fair" to remain a secret. That Comi?kf y should make a trip to St. Louis for just one game and that an exhibition might seem reasonable to sme. but it covered a pretext. Comis key reached St. Louis Saturday after noon, while the team did not arrive un til Sunday morning. Callahan was al ready at the mound city when "Coramy" arrived, and the inference Is obvious, al though telegraphic reports assert Calla han did not si,"ii until last night. Tha; was the mere formality by which Grif lith and Callahan became partners. The move is an important one and binds the players strongly to Ban John son's organization. It shows strongly the policy of the American League, to hive managers who are Interested fin ancially. Duffy at Milwaukee, McGraw at Bal.imore. McAleer at Cleveland, btailinas at Detroit and Connie Mack at Philadelphia are examples. CONCESSION BY COMISKEY. These who know Comiskey will real ize what a concession he has made, even if the interest be a small one, for he is a Chicago man and proud to the limit of his club. On the other hand, he is a man independently wealthy, and feels Inclined to rest from the constant ha rassing oversight of his men. Comiskey would prefer not to travel with the team, and perhaps thinks the compensation would equal the conces sion he has made in admitting to part-r.ership- Callahan and Griffith, two of the brainest players in the country. The success Griffith has experienced with the team at Kxcelsior Springs pre sages success as a manager. Callahan. Tt, ulthnugh a young man. will help him materially, for the two are the best of friend, wnrt anv stories of jealousy wnieti Iliav tsve been circuiy ted fire unfounded. Griffith saw the opening, believed a eiub to oi.pose the National league in Chicago would pny and wanted Callahan to share his prosperity. Comiskey was willing to eU an interest, even where he thought he bud a money-maker, lo secure the two players. At the same time the situation relieves Jim Hart of any blame for not securing Callahan, who saw a better tperS"T. Grinith has loner been an admirer of Comiskey. He played with him on the St. laouis team in ltd. For several years he was the mainstay of the Orphans in the pitching department until Callahan joined the team in iv'T. and at once took a front rank among National league twirlers. Griffith and Callahan received S.1,t for their services last season. Their actual piary This year is probably about the same. Their profits in the club are prob lematical, but they are willing to take the chances. CALLAHAN PRATSKS HART. Callahan has no personal differences with Hurt, but Griffith and the National l"f xue magnate have had wordy inter views through the newspapers in which unpleasant things ire said, and the lit tle dark-haired pitcher wuuld probably take u sweet revenge in managing a suc cessful club as & rival to the remnants. The details o the deal will ba awaited with interest. St. I-ouls. April 10. JImmv Callahan, who has been closeted with Cotniskev most of the time while here, signed a con tract after another Interview In which C'lffith was Included. Callahan, although pledged to play with the American league for some time, has ben fioldiifg back for better terms. It is almost certain he and Grifr.th received some emolument in addi tion to their regular salary. Callahan said today after signing h:3 contracts: "Yes. I have signed with Comiskey. and I regard it for my own best good. At the same time I have no feeling against Mr. liart. 'What would be tlie sense in mv roasting him Just because I am plaving In a rival league. He has alwavs treated me fairly, and I wish to say that muen lit his favor. I never named terms to 1dm. because I knew I would go to the American league." AUSTRALIA KAY SEND CHEW. President of Rowing Association Now In New York to Arrange Matches. New York. April 10. W. B.

New York. April 10 So much fault tJta been found, with the changes in thi? baseball rules made by the National &gue that it -will not be at ail surpris ing if the magnates are compelled to cut out the obnoxious points before the championship season begins. The American League, the Eastern League and nearly all of the leading col lege teams have refused to accept the changes, and will play under the rules that prevailed last year. The two clauses that have caused no end of unfavorable criticism ara those relating- to foul balls and batsmen hit by pitched balls. Rule 14 has been amended as follows: "A strike is a foul hit ball not caught on the fly, unless two strikes have al ready been called." GIANTS WILL, NOT PLAY YALE. Usual Spring Practice Game With College Men Abandoned. New York, April 10. One of the -usual spring practice games that has been a feature with baseball in New York will probably be abandoned this year. Th-a nine from Yale college was to have been played on "Wednesday, but a3 Yale play ed the other day with the Baltimore American League team, which is not un der the national agreement, the New York nine will not be able to meet the college men. , SEX.EE will play game. Boston Manager Makes Restitution to Yale For His Refusal. Fortress Monroe, Va., April 10. Man ager Selee. of the Boston league club was here today and had a talk with Manager Eliason of the Yale university team. The Yale men fully appreciate Selee's posi tion in the misunderstanding relative to the game arranged for Hampton, but canceled, and were highly delighted when Selee said he would play the Tales In New Haven Wednesday. April 17. the only open date on the Boston schedule prior to the opening of the sea-son, subject to the rati fication of President Soden of the Boston club. Selee said he thought Mr. Soden would interpose no objection, as the Yale men played the game in Baltimore in good faith. The Yale men also have a girna with New York this week, and are a bit apprehensive that President Freeoman may scale the game, but it is thought he will not go that far uion knowledge of the true inwardness of the case. Iee Demontreville,- the young infielder who has been practicing with the Bos tons, has been signed' for the Syracuse club. Catcher Clarke, now of the Wash ington?, wired Manager Selee the other day asking if he were a member of the Boston club. Selee referred the matter to Boston, who instructed the manager to Inform Clarke he had been released. MURPHY WILL TRY PAST MILE Thinks He Can Ride the Distance in , Fifty Seconds. New York, April 10. Charles M. Mur phy, the cyclist who rode a mile in 0:57 4-5 behind 'a car pulled by a locomotive, says he will outdo that feat this season. Murphy proposes to ritle behind a special ly constructed automobile. - .and he ex pects to cover the mile in 0:50. An automobile maker is now construct ing a machine which- will travel the mile in 0:50 on a level stretch of road. The machine will be 35 horsepower and the general plan will be like that of the fa mous Vanderbilt "white ghost." The auto is built very low and will have wind shields at the rear extending to the ground. A course suitable for the speed test against time has been selected on I,ong Island. Just as soon a.s the ma chine is built It will be brought there and Murphy will begin training back of it. Murphy says he would like to ride across the narrow footpath which is be ing constructed on the Kast river bridge, but it is hardly probable that the police would permit such a foolhardy feat. STUART TO BID. Will Try to Secure Jeffries-Ruhlin Eight For Carson City. New York, April 10. There is much speculation among sporting men just now as to the location of the battleground where the championship battle between "Gus" Puhlin and James J. Jeffries will be fought. "Han" Stuart, the f.trht promoter, who managed the Corbett-Fitzstmmons cham pionship affair at Carson City success fully, will arrive in town tomorrow. He has sent word forward that he will be a bidder for the big mill. The Twentieth Century and National Athletic clubs of San Francisco are also anxious to secure the bout, but as Jef fries and Ruhlin have now agreed to fight before the club offering the best in ducements, the highest bidder will be the successful one. no matter where the offor comes from. One thing is certain, though, and that is 'Frisco and, possibly, (.'arson City, are the only two places where a fight of such importance could be pulled of successfully. That is shown conclu sively by the failure of the attempt in WOMEN TO STRIVE FOR GOLF HONORS.

Dr. Haney Parker, the local physician, billiard expert and baseball player, signed a contract Satur day to pitch for the Boston team of the American league. Parker, who did good work for Minneapolis last summer, looks and feels well, but, although sure that the American will prosper, does not hes itate to give frank opinions on some of his associates' doings. "I do not blame Roger Denzer for jumping his contract with Comiskey," said the doctor. "Do you know w:hat Roger got from Commy? One hundred and sixty dollars a month far the last two yeais, five months in the year, or rather less than $10 a week fo- the twelve months he had to live each year. "Why, New York will pay Rodge more money than he ever saw and he won't have to work as hard." Promising Colt Dies. Lexington, Ky., April 10.

Manager Manning of the Wash ington club, said this morning that Mer cer has already reported for duty and is at present in "Washington.

The first game of the season by the Missouri uni versity baseball team was played here Tuesday afternoon with Grinnell college, of Iowa. Missouri made a rather poor showing, the score at the close standing 13 to 4 in favor of Iowa. The battery work of the visitors was far superior and this was largely the cause of their vic tory. The star players for Missouri were Coe at second base and Broadhead at third, both putting out ten men within six innings. Marsh, catcher, and Clark, pitcher, of the Iowa team made a fine record. A big crowd was there and the gate receipts were so large as to make the financial outlook for the season very encouraging. Pirates in Demand. Pittsburg, April 10. If the Pittsburg club had won the championship last year it could not be more in demand a3 an exhibition attraction than it ia now.

Callahan would not say why he decided to cast his fortunes with Comiskey's organization, but intimated that it was a matter of who paid him the best for hi3 services. Bobby Dobbs Defeated. Memphis, Tenn., April 10. In the twenty round tight between Bob Long, of Chicago, and Bobby Dobbs, of Memphis, tonight, the Chicago man gained the decision after sixteen rounds of very ordinary fighting, Dobbs' seconds throwing up the sponge, claiming their man had broken an arm. Dobbs out pointed his opponent in almost every round and did most of the leading but Long had a big advantage in weight and would probably have been given the de cision had the fight gone the limit. McFarland Goes Home. Philadelphia, April 10. Catcher Eddie McFarland has reserted the Philadel phia National League club. He packed his trunk yesterday afternoon and left last evening for his home in Cleveland. Manager Shettline is apparently much at sea, having received his first intima tion that anything was wrong on Friday after the game with Princeton. i Score a Tie. Washington, April 10.

Last Heard From on Zingu Riyer Three Years Ago. Fort Scott, April 10. After waiting for nearly two years trying to obtain more satisfactory proof of the death of Al fred Greenfield, a young man of Ma- pleton, Kan,, who was reported to have been massacred In the wild Interior of BraziLwith a party of explorers organ ized three years ago in Kansas City, the Ancient Order of United Workmen of Kansas has Just ordered the payment cf a $2,000 life insurance policy which young Greenfield carried in that order. The beneficiaries were his sisters. Mis. E. Lowe of Mapleton and Mrs. Camp bell of Del Norte, Col. A Kansas City merchant backed the expedition into Brazil to locate a rubber grant, which it was proposed to obtain from the Brazilian government. Nearly a year after it had left the last point of civilization, way up the Zingu river, Frank Greenfield, a brother of the ex plorer, who had accompanied the party far into Brazil, came home to organize a relief expedition to go In search of the four Americans composing the expedi tion. He secured aid from this and the Brazilian governments and went into the interior of Brazil, finally reporting having learned from the savage natives of the country that the four men had been massacred. This was insufficient proof of death to warrant the payment of the policyy, but the lodge has been convinced of the young man's death and has ordered the J2.000 paid. DRUGGISTS' OCCUPATION" TAX. Wellington Adopts Novel Scheme to Enrich Its Treasury. Wellington, April 10. The city council ftas struck a way of raising revenue, which, if It works, will produce plenty of money. An ordinance was passed which strikes those who sell liquor un der the law. It levies an occupation tax of J1.200 a year upon druggists who hold permits under the state laws to sell in toxicating liquors. This license must be paid semi-annually, $600 in advance. Each day the druggist engages in busi ness in violation of this ordinance, is a separate offense for which the fine is made $100. The druggists, it is under stood, will fight the ordinance.

David Nickel & Son, of Reading, today brought suit against the Santa Fe for alleged failure to transport eighty-eight head of cattle to the Kansas City market, October 2, 1900, in time to catch the morning mar ket, thereby causing the plaintiff to lose $1125 in falling prices and poor condition of cattle by reason of lack of feed and water. Plaintiff claims that defendant held stock in cars six hours after time for shipment, and further delayed the train by reason of defective cars and over worked train crew until they did not arrive on the market until 2 p. m. the next, day, when they should have arrived in time for the early morning market, thereby causing a loss to the plaintiff as above stated. ' HARVEST HANDS NEEDED. Farmers Want Railroads to Make Special Rates For 10,000. "Wichita. April 10. D. "W. Blaine of Pratt, a director of the Southwestern Kansas and Oklahoma Implement Deal ers' association, came here to consult Secretary Dillon with reference to going before the Western Passenger associa tion to ask for a special rate for at least 10.000 harvest hands to take care of the small grain in the wheat belt in June. They will ask a rate of 1 cent per mile from the Mississippi river. The esti mate of 10,000 hands is made from a can vass of farmers by school districts. The crop in the wheat belt will be 25 per cent heavier than that of last year. NEW MOVE IN CARTER CASE. Newspapers to Bo Sued For Libel in Order to Bring Out Testimony. Leavenworth, April 10. John H. At wood, attorney for Oberlin M. Carter, said this afternoon that he had caused suit for libel to be brought against the Chicago Journal, and that, in the near future, suit would be brought against the New York Tribune. The Journal and the Tribune printed a story to the effect that Carter's alleged stealings have been located. He said that tha purpose was to force these papers to produce testi mony In their own defense, Which Carter would find valuable in his efforts to se cure a rehearing and civil trial. He said that when the suits come to trial the pa pers will have the opportunity to intro duce civilian witnesses, who were not brought into the Savannah trial, and by their testimony it is hoped to prove Carter's innocence. "We have been waiting for an oppor tunity of this kind for a long time." said Atwood, "and it was for this pur pose that we tried to bring about the trial in Savannah." The only embarrassment will be that Carter will not be abie to attend the trials in Chicago or New York. PASTORS APPOINTED. The Work of Northwest Conference at Ellsworth. . Ellsworth, Kan., April 10.

The Cancer patient naturally grows despondent as one after another the usubL remedies fail, and the sore shows no sign of healrng. The impurities that have, been accumulating in the system, perhaps for generations, cannot be eliminated nor the poisoned blood made pure by salves, washes and plasters.
