Big Five" Holds Key to the National
League Reorganization.
Philadelphia, Nov. 30. One week from
next Monday the National league base
ball club owners will hold a meeting in
New York, which will be of vast im
portance to the game. Interest is just
now centered in what will be done at
this meeting. Many believe that the
circuit will remain Just as it is. Much
however will depend on the action of
Freedman, Brush, Soden, Dreyfuss and
Robison, the "big five' of the league.
These five men by their combined votes
can control league affairs, and they will
be the dictators in the coming reor
ganization. The "big five" will probably
have a meeting some time this week to
decide what is to be done. Freedman
lias often proclaimed that Brooklyn is
not a major league city, and John T.
Brush is known to have a knife up his
sleeve for the Philadelphia club own
ers. .
Just what will happen cannot be fore
told, but it is evident that some scheme
Is being concocted to get even with
old-time enemies. When such a com
bination has on "grum shoe" It will
bear watching.
Barney Drevfuss is the only one that
has been heard from, and he has merely
suggested a change in the rules so that
each club can carry 17 plavers instead
of only 16 aa now stipulated In the
Harry Dolan, who recently signed a
Brooklyn contract for 1902. at an ad
vanced salary, is authority for the
statement that Joe Kelley may jump
Brooklyn and sign with the Baltimore
Manager Hanlon evidently feels cer
tain that some of his old men are go
ing to jump the Brooklyn club. He is
trying his utmost to sign John Ander
son, who formerly played with Brook
lyn, but has for the last two years
played first base for the Milwaukee
club of the American league. The Bos
ton club is also after Anderson, and
Manager Buekenberger has tried to get
Brooklyn to waive its reserve of the
player. Hanlon refuses to do so, and is
trying to induce Anderson to once more
come into the Brooklyn fold.
J. H. Haggin Contemplates a New
Home For His Thoroughbreds.
New York, Nov. 30. J. B. Haggin, the
multimillionaire breeder and owner of
many thoroughbreds, stabled at Eaton
town, N. J., is contemplating building
a new home for his borses and extend
ing his racing affairs. Mr. Haggin ias
purchased fur acres of land in Neck
Head for toe erectioa oX the new sta
ble and when it is completed it will
be one of the finest in the country.
The work of building the stable will
be begun soon and it is expected that
it will be finished before the racing
season opens next year. The colors of
Mr. Haggin were not seen on the local
tracks for some years until this year,
when be raced Watercolor and a few
others. The plans of Mr. Haggin, how
ever, are that next year his horses will
not be idle and that his colors will be
prominent in all the stakes.
McGovern's Manager Posts $2,500
For Another Bout With Corbett.
New York. Nov. 30. In sporting circles
here nothing is talked of more than the
defeat of Terrv McOovern by "Young
Corbett" in Hartford. That McGovern
was beaten by a two handed rushing
fighter like himself was conceded by ev
erybody, but McGrOvern's friends are evi
dently of the opinion that should the boys
meet again McGovern will regain his lost
Friday afternoon Sam Harris, McGov
ern's manager posted J2.&J0 to bind an
other match, the time and place to be at
the will of "Young Corbett." In an in
terview Harris said:
"In order to get a return match with
Young Corbett' Terry will agree to knock
him out before the limit of 2U or 25 rounds
is reached or forfeit the entire purse. Now,
if 'Young Corbett' thinks he is McGov
ern's master, he will cover the forfeit
which I have placed in rrputable hands,
and if he refuses the public can easily
see who is the better man.
"I don't wish to take away any of the
credit that is due 'Young Corbett' over his
great victory, but 1 still insist that the
result ol the fight was due 10 a fluke.
When McGovern was put down- in the
first round his head came in contact with
the boarded floor of the ring, and this so
stunned him that he was in a dazed con
dition thereafter. My man. McGovern,
had all the better of the mill up to that
time, and hnd the ring been padded there
would have been another story to tell. In
delivering the last blow 'Young Corbett'
did not realize himself that he had hit
Terry with effect, as his head was down
and he was swinging his hands wildly.
It was lucky enough to be a winning
blow and what I consider a chance one.
"I am positive that McGovern did not
show his true form in this contest, and I
am willing to accept the proposition of
James C. Kennedy, manager and match
maker of the Twentieth Century Athletic
club of San Francisco, who has offered a
purse of $10,000 for the men to meet again
at his club."

elected for the ensuing year: B. P.
Stoil, Lucas Broadhead, L. Y. Harkness,

are Mr. Cirover, of Georgetown, and
Brook Curry, of Lexington. Mr. S. T.
Harbison and H. K. McAdams retire
from the board, both of them declining
to serve again on account of the pres
sure of private business. The annual
report of Secretary H. W. Wilson
showed a pront of J10.000 for the uc
tober meeting. This will wipe out the
last remaining indebtedness, and for
the first time since reorganization, in
1892, the association will not owe a
single dollar..

Big Wrestler Issues a Challenge to
Jim Jeffries.
Cleveland, Nov. 30. Tom Jenkins, the
champion wrestler, intends to turn pu
gilist, and last night issued a challenge
to meet James J. Jeffries in a glove
contest for the world's championship
and a reasonable side bet. Jenkins has
long been known by the public onlv as
a wrestler,- but he is equally skillful
with the glovs, and he believes that
the greater financial emoluments accru
ing from too ring would warrant his
turning to pugilism. He does not in
tend, however, to give up wrestling en
tirely, but will meet all bona fide chal
lengers In both wrestling and boxing.
Manager Touhy will leave Cleveland
for San Francisco, Monday morning, to
see Jeffries in the matter of a match
with Jenkins.
Fitz and Jeffries Made a Fine Offer to
New York, Nov) 30. The interest at
tending to a bout between Robert Fitz
simmons and James Jeffries is not con
fined to America. While Jim Kennedy
is matching the pair for a bout on the
Pacific coast, the National Sporting
club today received the following cable
gram from A. F. Bethuspn, manager of
the English fighting organization:
"Can you arrange to get Fitzsimmons
and Jeffries to fight at this club within
three months, limited to ten rounds, for
good-sized purse?"
Fitz is absent from his training quar
ters on private business, but as soon as
he returns he will be asked where lie
desires to again try for the champion
shin. LOST $3,000 ON YALE.
Young Vanderbilt Drops This Amount
on Blue-Crimson Contest.
Boston, Nov. 30. The heaviest indi
vidual loser on the Yale-Harvard gam 3
was Reginald Claypool Vanderbilt. He
drooped $3,000. He wagered that amount
with a half dozen Harvard students,
putting the money up Saturday morn
ing just before the game. He gave odds
of 5 to 4.
Mr. Vanderbilt attended the game

Track Records Broken.
Washington, Nov. 30 Three track
records were broken at Bennings. Pros
per La Gai, in the first race, reduced
the time for one mile and fifty yards
from 1:47 4-5 to 1:46. Federalist, in the
fifth event, clipped one-fifth of a second
from the record of 1:47 for one mile
and forty yards, and Potente, the only
winning favorite of the day, made her
own pace for a mile and a furlong and
lowered the track record of 1:57 2-5 by
two-fifths of a second. Slidell, backed
from 40 to 1 to 5 to 1. won the second
race, and Federalist, a 25 to 1 chance,
captured the fifth event. H. Cochran's
five mounts all took some of the money.
The track was fast.
Western League Wants Sexton.
Rock Island, 111., Nov. 30. M. H. Sex
ton, of this city, president of the "Three
I" league, has letters from the man
agers of several of the clubs in the
Western league urging him to consider
a proposition to become the Hirecting
head of that organization in the event
of the deposing of T. J. Hickey, with
whose services they express dissatis
faction. Mr. Sexton has not answered
any of the letters as yet, but states,
although flattered by the offer, it would
hardly be possible for him to accept
on account of his private business, the
same reason that caused him to decline
re-election as president of the "Three
St Louis Americans to Get Douglas.
St. Louis, Nov. 30. Douglas, the crack
catcher of the Philadelphia National
league club, reached St. Louis from his
home at Wellsville today, and from the
way he talked it appears highly likely
that he will desert the parent body and
go with the American league. Jimmy
McAleer, who takes charge of the new
St. Louis club, has .made him a liberal
offer, and, according to what his
friends say, "Bill" has as good as
signed. McAleer's catching staff thus
far consists of "Jiggs" Donahue and
young Maloney.
Beck Signs With the Reds.
Toledo, Nov. 30. It was learned to
day that Erve Beck had signed a con
tract with Cincinnati for next season,
and that he is to receive $3,000 for his
work. He will hold down the second
sack. Last year at Cleveland his work
attracted the attention of Manager Mc
Phee of the Reds and immediately after
the close of this season he opened nego
tiations with Beck.
McKeever-O'Brien Matched.
New York, Nov. 30. The Charley
McKeever-JacK O'Brien match is cre
ating much interest in London. Ar
rangements for a limited round bout
have been completed, and they will
meet in the early part of January.
O'Brien has not been defeated since his
arrival in the old country, and as he
has beaten all the Englishmen that
could be got to face him it was neces
sary to import Americans. McKeever
is confident of defeating O'Brien, but
the latter does not seem as confident of
beating his fellow Philadelphian as he
was of putting away his other antag
onists. Should O'Brien defeat McKeever
he will probably meet Kid McCoy.
Ruhlin at Denver..
Denver, Nov. 30. "Gus" Ruhlin and
his manager, Billy Madden, arrived in
the city last night and registered at
the Oxfocd hotel. Madden had a long
statement prepared in which he reiter
ates his declaration that Ruhlin quit
because of a dislocated knuckle on the
left hand. The adverse criticism of the
big fighter is attributed by Madden to
the work of "knockers."

New York, Nov. 30. Floyd MacFar

Abilene, Nov. 30. The fine autumn

clear sunshiny days has been excellent
for stock but the wheat fields need rain
now. The pasturing of the wheat has
taken off the tops very closely and dur

bixty Wichita Children Have Been
Exposed to Scarlet Fever.
Wichita, Nov. 30. Sixty members of
the Masonic home are quarantined be
cause Roy Bevins, ag'ed 14, one of their
number, is critically ill with scarlet fe
ver. Twenty-five of the members of
the home are children attending the
McCormick and the Franklin schools,
and as long as the home is under quar
antine they will be without public
school privileges.
The case was reported to the health
board by Dr. M. W. Cave, and the quar
antine was at once established. The
patient has been ill for two days, but
few of the symptoms of scarlet fever
manifested themselves until. Friday,
when he began to break out. He has
been removed to an isolated quarter of
the home, and it is thought that if pro
per precautions are taken no one else
in the home will take the disease. A

There are more cases of Bcarlet fever
The Principal Cause is Cor able but
Generally Overlooked.
Many things may cause deafness and
very often it is difficult to trace a cause.
Some people inherit deafness. Acute dis
eases like scarlet fever sometimes cause
Si '
deafness. But by far the most common
cause of loss of hearing is catarrh of the
head and throat.
A prominent specialist on ear troubles
gives as his opinion that nine out of ten
cases of deafness is traced to throat trou
ble; that is probably overstated, but it is
certainly true that more than half of all
cases of poor hearing were caused by ca
tarrh. The catarrhal secretion in the nose and
throat finds its way into the Eustachian
tube and by clogging it up very soon af
fects the hearing, and the hardening of
the secretion makes the loss of hearing
.permanent unless the catarrh which
caused the trouble is cured.
Those who are hard of hearing may
think this a little far fetched, but anyone
at all observant must have noticed how
a hard cold in the head will affect the
hearing and that catarrh If long neglect
ed will certainly impair the sense of hear
ing and ultimately cause deafness.
If the nose and throat are kept clear
and free from the unhealthy secretions of
catarrh, the hearing will at once greatly
improve and anyone suffering from deaf
ness and catarrh can satisfy themselves
on this point by using a 50c box of Stu
art's Catarrh Tablets, a new catarrh cure,
which in the past year has won the ap
proval of thousands of catarrh sufferers
as well as physicians, because it is in con
venient form to use, contains no cocaine
or opiate and is as safe and pleasant for
children as for their elders.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is a wholesome
combination of Blood root. Guaiacol, Eu
calyptol and similar antiseptics and they
cure catarrh and catarrhal deafness by
action upon the blood and mucous mem
brane of the nose and throat.
As one physician aptly expresses It:
"You do not have to draw upon the imag
ination to discover whether vou are get
ting benefit from Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets: improvement and relief are apparent
from the first tablet taken."
All druggists sell and recommend them.
They cost but 50c for full sized package
and any catarrh sufferer who has wasted
time and money on sprays, salves and

Wonderful Young Violinist
May Tisit Topeka.
New York, Nov. 30. On the steamship
Majestic, which arrived Thanksgiving,
was Juan Kubelik, the wonderful young
violinist who in his art has been called
Paderewski's peer. Herr Kubelik pre
sents a most striking appearance. He
is clean shaven, nearly six feet tall and
his Jet black hair is very long. His
hands are of abnormal size.
Herr Kubelik gave the following in
terview: "My talent is inherited. My father,
Josef, was a market gardener by occu
pation, but a musician by the grace of
God. He could play any instrument.
"When I was 5 years old I showed my
talent, and my father gave me a violin
of his own make and taught me to play.
This was in Michle, near Prague. My
father taught me for two years and
then I could play better than he could.
I had different teachers after that. I
gave my first public recital at Prague.
It was a great success and my public
career began."
Herr Kubelik may visit Topeka on his
tour through the country.
A London paper says of Kubelik:
In London last spring a Kubelik party
was the very smartest entertainment
even a duchess could offer her friends.
Indeed, since Paderewski's advent there
has been no such lion as this same pale
faced, long-haired, spiritual-looking
Hungarian gypsy virtuoso of the violin.
Kubelik is only 21 years of age and
his is not the ' musical genius that
Btarves in a garret. By a sudden bound
he has leaped into the forefront of his
profession. It is said that he is about
to undertake a tournee, as it is called,
for which he will receive $100,000. This
fortune is sometimes the reward of a
lifetime of struggle and hard work; but
Kubelik has scarcely emerged from his
teens, and he is going to make this sum
in the course of a few months in the
United States while waiting for the
next London season to commence. He
plays, too, 'with an abandon which
shows the artist. As one watches him
one feels that he has forgotten his
audience; that his mind is far away,

instance where the matter has been
presented to the lodge. Mr. Pfost and
Mr. Landis have appeared before the
