GOULD NOT AGREE Game Slated Between Haskell and K. U. Declared Off. Athletic Relations Are Severed Between the Schools. OLIVER NOT ELIGIBLE. Claim by Kansas That the Red skin Is a Coach. 1 Clause in the Agreement Pro hibits His Playing. Lawrence, Kan., Xov. 18. Athletic relations between Kansas university and Haskell institute are at an end. The game scheduled between these In stitutions for today has been called off. At a meeting of the athletic board of the University of Kansas held Fri day afternoon It was decided to give Superintendent H. B. Peairs of Haskell until 5 o'clock to -accede to the de mands of the board. Mr. Peairs re fused to agree to keep Oliver out of the eame as Kansas demanded and Prof. J. N. "Van der Vries, secretary of the board, who was empowered to act for the board, declared as the Fowler hops blew the hour of 5, "The game Assistant Coach Oliver, Whose Eligi bility Caused the Cancellation of the K. U.-HaskeU Game. is off. Athletic relations between Kan sas and Haskell are not worth much now." No Compromise. The athletic board sent a communi cation to Superintendent Peairs, stat ing that as they believed Oliver to be a coach and St. Germame to be Ineligi ble, In that he had registered at Has kell after October 1, the board -would not permit these men to play in the game against Kansas. The letter further stated that unless Superintend ent Peairs agreed to keep Oliver and St. Germaine out of the game, Kansas would refuse to play. He was given until 5 o'clock in the afternoon to agree to the demands of the Kansas board. On receipt of the communication from Kansas Mr. Peairs immediately submitted a counter proposition. He proposed that Haskell appoint a rep resentative, Kansas do the same, and these two choose a third, thus forming a committee which should decide the question. Kansas refused to consider the arbitration proposition as there was not time to properly argue the question. Mr. Peairs then made a proposition that Kansas permit Oliver to play and St. Germaine would be kept out of the game. Kansas refused to consider any proposition from Mr. Peairs. As Secretary "Van der Vrie3 said, "If Mr. Peairs does not agree un conditionally not to play Oliver and St. Germaine the game will not be played." Cause of Trouble. The trouble has arisen over the In terpretation of the contract between Kansas and Haskell for the annual game this season. A section of the con tract reads: "No member of the fac ulty, coach or assistant coach shall be allowed to participate in the game." A separate section is: "No one shall be permitted to participate in the game who receives a gift, remunera tion or pay for his services on the team." In these sections lie the trouble over Oliver. Mr. Peairs understands that these two sections refer to each other. He argues that to be a coach, or as sistant coach, a man must receive pay. He acknowledges that Oliver has been doing most of the coaching this year, but he argues that Oliver is simply a student who knows more about the game than the others and he is simply helping them out. Kansas argues that Oliver is a coach and therefore plain ly ineligible under the contract, wheth er he receives pay for his services or not. The St. Germaine trouble Is through a fault In the making of the contract. A clause reads: "No one not regularly enrolled in school prior to September 1. 1905, shall be allowed to play." Now. it happens that St. Germaine INTERESTING LOCAL NEWS EVENTS OF THE PAST WEEK AS DEPICTED BY THE SUNDAY. A fine day in Topeka for outdoor exer cise of all kinds. was enrolled at Haskell four years ago, but has not been In attendance there for three years. Mr. Peairs goes on the theory of "once a student, always a student." Kansas has evidence that St. Germaine has been in attendance at Wisconsin university and at Highland Park college. He played on the High land Park baseball and football teams in 1903. Kansas, therefore, contends that St. Germaine lost his studenthood in Haskell when he enrolled at High land Park. He did not enroll at Has kell this year until after October 1. "Kansas is unreasonable," said Sup erintendent Peairs. "The arbitration proposition that I made them is cer tainly fair. I was willing to keep St. Germaine, out of the game because there is a misunderstanding, but Oliver is perfectly eligible to play. He Is sim ply a student who is helping in the coaching." "I believe that we had a right to pro test Oliver and St. Germaine," said Manager Lansdon last night. "There is no doubt but that they are ineligi ble under this contract. I think the right thing has been done by the board. Haskell has been having her own way in football too long. We might as well stop it right row. As to any more re lations with Haskell. I will not sche dule any athletic contest with them. It lies with the board to formally break off relations. It is too bad, for we ought to be friends, but if Haskell acts unreasonable there is nothing else to do." "I guess It was all ror the best." said Coach Kennedy, "but we all want to play the Indians. Had they met us fairly we would have beaten them. As things stand row Haskell has the best of us In records. I would have liked to have straightened things up." "We fellows surely wanted to play Haskell, but we would not monkev with them if they insisted on playing coaches," said Captain Pooler. There is a general disappointment among the students and townspeople. The Haskell-Kansas game promised to be a wonder. Haskell and Kansas both needed the money that would come from the game. The shares would have been about $1,000 for each school. The freshmen will play the sqphomores on McCook field this afternoon. This game will practically be a battle between the freshmen and varsity, as all the so phomores are from the first team squad. KANSAS TEACHERS BEST. Emporia Normal Defeated Warrens burg by a Score of 34 to 6. Emporia, Kan., Nov. 18. The Missouri Normals scored against Kansas teachers here Friday afternoon, but were defeated in a one-sided game by the score of 34 to 6. The Kansas teachers outweighed the Missouri team by sev eral pounds and played a much faster game. The first touchdown was made after a few mirreTes of play and from then to the end of the game the Normals did not have any trouble in making gains whenever the ball was in their possession. Missouri started the game by trying to gain through the Normal line and for a few downs made their gains without trouble. It began to look as though they would make the game hard for the Kansas teachers, but once the Kansas team got the ball they car ried it for gains at nearly every down. Toward the close of the game they made gains of from five to thirty yards on end runs. The Kansas team also played a good defensive game. Missouri made its only score on a fumble. Hunter picked up the ball and ran fifty yards for a touchdown and Stark kicked the goal. This was the Inst amp on the home prnnna frr tho TKansas Normals, but they will play two more games before the close of the sea son. Saturday's FootbaU Games. Yale vs. Princeton at New Haven.

BE 20 OR MORE ROUKDS Lanky Bob Will Train at Croll's Gardens at Alameda. Jack Will Work at Sheenhan's, Down on the Beach. San Francisco, Nov. 18. Articles of agreement for the Fitzsimmons O'Brien fight have been drawn up and signed by the three parties to the con tract, Eddie Graney, acting for Pro moter Coffroth, who is still in the east looking after his moving pictures. The set of articles signed yesterday is not the same set to which Fitz attached his signature in New York. Under the present agreement Fitz and O'Brien will fight twenty or more rounds at Mechanics' pavilion between December 20 and 31, 1905, a definite date to be decided by Promoter Cof froth before December 1. The fight ers will get 60 per cent of the gross receipts of which the winner will re ceive 75 per cent and loser 25 per cent. Forfeits of $2,500 each are to be deposited. Eddie Graney is named as referee In the articles of agreement. This will do away with a lot of unnecessary argument occasioned by the fighters when they postpone the choice of the referee until within a few days of the date of the contest. Bob Fitzsimmons has made arrange ments to train at Croll's gardens at Alameda for his fight with O'Brien. This was the place where he fitted himself for his fight with George Gardner. He could have trained at other resorts near the city, but he picked Croll's because of the spacious gymnasium. "I want a large place to work in so the public can come over and see me box," said Bob. "I don't care to be cooped up in a cigar box where I can't have an audience. Reports have been circulated that I can't train any more and I am anxious to satisfy the public that such is not the case." Billy Delaney sent Fitz word that he could have the services of Al Kauf man for sparring partner. Bob will probably employ the big fellow. He will also engage a clever middle weight to spar with him, and this man will be Harry Foley if he is disen gaged. Jack O'Brien will train at Sheenhan's, on the beech, where he has been since he arrived here. KELLEY MAKES PROTEST. St. Paul Baseball Manager Carries His Case to Court. Cincinnati, Nov. 18. A legal con test against a decision of the national baseball commission was begun in the .United States district court in this city when Michael J. Kelley, the rftaager of the St. Paul American association team, filed a petition for an injunc tion against the commission to re strain it from putting into effect its decision that he should play with the St. Louis American League team. Kelley declared that he was not un der contract to the St. Paul club and could not therefore be the subject of a sale by Owner George Lennon of that organization. He stated that if he should, after the decision of the commission, undertake to play with any other team than the St. Louis club he would in effect be blacklisted and prevented forever from engaging in baseball as a means of livelihood. He declared that of the members of the commission August Hermann and Ban Johnson, as well as John E. Bruce, the secretary of the commis sion, had a pecuniary interest in the discussion, for which reason these members of the commission were prejudiced against him. His request to the commission that the sale of himself to the St. Louis club be set aside had been denied by the commis sion, which would announce to the baseball clubs that fact and thereby prevent him from playing with any other club. He therefore asked for an injunction restrayiing the members of the com mission from any action whereby any professional baseball club in the Unit ed States is prevented from engaging him as a player for the next season. A temporary restraining order was is sued, good until Monday morning when the case will be taken up for hearing. One on Kip Selbach. Cincinnati, Nov. 18. The En quirer says: Hugh Fullerton tells one on Kip Selbach, of Columbus, who was with the Boston Americans this season. He says: "Al Selbach is one of the best fel lows and one of the best ball players in the business but he has a weak ness. He can't get the drives hit over his head and he knows it. Perhaps you have noticed what a deep field he plays. Well, he can come in faster than any one since Tip O'Neill's day but he doesn't like to go back. "One day in New York one of these 'Jones flew, Smith fanned, Brown same,' newspapers printed a big half page picture of Selbach, and under it a story palpably written by some one who didn't know anything about it, called 'How to Play Left Field TUESDAY. Bill Sapp comes to town with a grip full of politics. by Al Selbach,' the player, of course, not knowing what it said. "I was coming up the field in the Polo grounds looking at the pair when 'Kip' caught a glimpse of his picture and came trailing along, look ing over my shoulder, and trying to read it. He saw the title. " 'What does that guy say in there?" he asked. "Then I proceeded to read making it up as I went along: " 'How to play left field by Allen Selbach. The beginner in left field should observe, first of all, this most important rule: Place your back against the left field bleachers so that they can't hit the ball over your head ' " 'Does that guy say that ?' demand ed Kip. And from his tone of voice it is well that the writer was not near just then." HARD IA'CR FOR ST. MARYS. Outplayed Doane College Yet Lost by Score of 23 to 17. St. Marys, Kan., Nov. 18. In the most gruelling game ever played on the St. Marys college campus the local team was defeated by the heavy team from Doane college. The St. Marys team showed its regular form and out classed the Congregationalists in every department of the game with the ex ception of luck, as two touchdowns and a safety were simply donated to them. Coach Quigley did not present his strongest lineup as was his intention, as Isenman, the big right guard, was on the sick list and Monroe, the 'var sity center, was shifted to right tackle, and this arrangement being a new one necessarily weakened the team work particularly on defense, as Doane made most of her gains through the sub-guard, Falkenburg. Captain Walsh won the toss and chose the west goal and received the kick with a series of shift plays which the Northerners could not solve, scored a touchdown in three minutes and duplicated the trick in eight min utes of play, failing to kick the last goal. When within five yards of an other touchdown a fumble gave the ball to Doane on their own five yard line and their weight began to tell on the local team, the Doane team weigh ing 178 and the Catholics but 159. The half ended with the score 13 to 11 in favor of Doane, they having scored a touchdown on an attempted punt which the St. Marys center, Burke, passed about five feet above King's head, the ball rolling behind the goal line. In the second half the Catholics rushed the ball over for another touch down and Walsh kicked goal and it was here that the tide of fortune be gan to go against them. Their fast playing was blocked by the Doane team taking out time and running in substitutes while the St- Marys lineup remained unchanged. Three times during this half did the locals lose the ball on fumbles and let the visitors gain till within their own five yard line and each time did they hold and take the ball on down. Once did the line give away and block a punt and a Doane man fell on the ball behind the goal line, giving them five points, and again did the Doane team fumble and the ball rolled over the goal line only to be downed by a Doane man. During the game Doane carried the ball a total of 193 yards and scored 23 points, while St. Marys carried the ball a total of 496 yards and scored a total of 17 points. The game while one of the hardest played on the local grid iron was in a way orte of the most spectacular, and the game itself clean ly played, as but three penalties were given. Both teams showed remarkable' form especially on offense and while Qulg ley's team was racing, down the field Coach Fuhrer, of Doane repeatedly re marked: "Where did that team ever un earth such a remarkable offence why, no team could stop them." The St. Mary's team seems to be in good spirits after losing the game the way they did and Coach Quigley is bent on having his charges in' fine condition for the heavy Normals who play on the 25th.

TO THE PACIFIC COAST. In a Few Days Young Corbett Will Move Westward. New York, Nov. 18. In a few days "Young Corbett" will leave for San Francisco for the purpose of getting into condition for another battle, which will be fought before the Colma Athletic club of California the second week in December. His opponent in this contest will be Fred Landers, the light weight of California, who gave Willie Fitz gerald such a hard battle, but never theless was knocked out In the twenty fifth round. The bout between Corbett and Lan ders was arranged by Jimmy Coffroth, who secured Corbett's signature to ar ticles of agreement after he had re ceived a telegram from the coast stat ing that Landers was willing to fight Corbett and had signed the articles. Corbett and Landers will engage in a twenty-five round bout at 133 pounds, weigh in at the ringside, and will battle, for 60 per cent of the gross receipts. TWO IMPORTANT MATCHES. Britt and Corbett and Britt and Nelson May Battle Again. New York, Nov. 18. Two important matches are planned by Jimmy Cof froth, the San Francisco fistic promoter and manager of the Colma Athletic chlBi Coffroth, who is in town, said that Jimmy Britt and Young Corbett will figure in the first contest, and, if possi ble, he will try to bring Britt and Bat tling Nelson together again. "If everything goes along the way I expect," said Coffroth, "Britt and Cor bett will have it out at Colma next Jan uary, or during February at the latest." Iilndsborg 22, SaUna 0. Lindsborg, Kas., Nov. 18. The Lindsborg Swedes defeated the Wes leyan football team of Salina in two twenty-minute halves Friday after noon by a score of 22 to 0. This is the first game of the season here and a number of new men were tried out in the last half. The Wesleyan team was completely outplayed. Runs by Berquist, Thorstenberg and Peterson and the line plunges of Swanstrom were the features of the game. Har vey, the plucky little quarterback of the Wesleyan team, did excellent work. A return game will be played at Salina next week. Racing at Frisco. San Francisco, Nov. 18. The Wat ercress handicap at three-quarters of a mile proved a very interesting affair between the two choices. Tocolaw won the affair through Radtke clearly utriding Clark on Deutschland.

Buyers Hare Trouble in Getting Goods Quickly Enough. SCARCITY OF LABOR Is Affecting Manufacturing In dustries to a Slight Extent. fiailway Earnings Show Healthy Increase Over Last Year. New York, Nov. 18. R. G. Dunn & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: A temporary flurry in the money mar ket had little dfeleterious effect in com mercial channels. Most reports indicate a further increase in the volume of bus iness. Orders come forward freely for distant delivery and buyers experience much difficulty in making purchases for quick shipment. Wholesale trade in holiday goods is now well under way and retail distribution of seasonable merchandise responds to the generally lower temperatures. There is still some delay in mercantile collections, espec ially in the south, where cotton is not being marketed freely and to a less de gree in grain regions, because traffic facilities are not adequate, but the ma jority of reports indicate that payments are more prompt in spite of the higher money rates. Manufacturing plants have scarcely a drawback except scarci ty of labor in a few instances and small strikes that interrupt structural work to some extent. None of these influences affect any considerable proportion of the capacity and there are many new high records of production. This is the case at pig iron furnaces and coke ovens, while textile mills and shoe factories make almost as satisfactory exhibits. Traffic conditions have improved and railway earnings for the first week of November were 4.9 per cent larger than in the corresponding time last year, while the official statement of foreign com merce for the month of October showed a very large increase in the aggregate and at this port for the last week ex ports gained $3,933,028 in comparison with 1904, while imports decreased $1, 160,047. Increased imports of iron and steel, especially structural shapes, tes tified to the current rate of consumption, as domestic production is undoubtedly at the maximum. Hides continue firm, but trading is restricted by the light offerings of pack ers, who are sold far ahead, rather than any lack of demand. Further advances occurred in foreign dry hides. Trade in leather is also somewhat less active. Bradstrcet's. Bradstreet's says: Activity is still the keynote of the in dustrial and commercial situation. Colder weather and the coming Christ mas holidays have caused a heavy dis tribution in practically every section of the country save in the Northwest, where the rather high temperatures and railway congestion prevent the full est development. Railway earnings are enormous, but the wide-spread block ades are assuming a serious phase and tend to curtail production in some in dustrial lines. Manufacturing lines are remarkably active. Outdoor construc tion work is being conducted on an enormous scale, and a shortage of labor is reported from many sections. Real estate the country over is very brisk. The outlook for spring trade is very promising, and in short all advices in STATE JOURNAL FRIDAY Gas company shows people of Topeka how to sign contracts. dicate the existence of flourishing con ditions.

When China ceded Port Arthur to Russia for a term of years it made an agreement with England ceding Wei Hal Wei for the same length of time that Port Ar thur should remain in Russian hands. Since the Russo-Japanese war Port Ar thur is no longer a Russian proposition and the question comes up whether the agreement made with England still holds good. CARTOONIST. SATURDAY.
