Mich., Oct 27.—Hal Stewart made a spectacular bid for fistic fame last night In bis lb-round bout with Joe Mandot, and only supe rior ring generalship and n grand tenth round finish saved the New Or leans lad from a beating at the hands of the Ft Wayne unknown. Stewsrt started tbe scrap with a rush, and for five rounds fought Man dot blow for blow, greatly pusxling Timmy Walsh’s protege by his unique style of attack. Up to that time it looked aa if Stewart had a winning margin, but Mandot then opened up and with a succession of right and left jolts battered his way back to even terms in n memorable tenth round winning a margin over the then tiring Stewart.

Three touchdowns have been •cored against Harvard, three against Princeton, two against Yale, one against the Army, and two against Penn State.

Dave Fultz Brings , $50,000 Suit For Libel NEW YORK, Oct. 27.—David L. Fultz, president and attorney of the Baseball Players’ Fraternity, and hlmgflf a former ball player, has filed suit in the supreme court against the Sporting Life Publish ing company for $50,000 for libel. Fultx based his action on an arti cle that charged Fultx with respon sibility for the attitude of Ray Caldwell, the Yankee pitcher, who deierted his clnb. This attitude of Caldwell, said the article, was due to the Influence of Fultz, who openly "hobnobbed’* with Jsmes A. Gilmore, president of the Federal league. be eligible in the city series, accord ing to the decree of the National com miasion. That's why h© didn’t get a postseason check. But Bobby de clares that when he signed with the Cubs, President Thomas told him pos itively that he would be eligible, and that If he wasn't, he would get his share of the receipts anyway. So. he says, he signed for n smaller sum than he otherwise would. There were no strings to the offer, Fisher declares, and It is asserted that the union is planning to Investigate the affair and avenge Bobby.- if the circumstances warfant. Tint UETKUIi iiNhS, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1914. OUTLAW BAIT TO TEMPT MINORS AT OMAHA MEET Apparently unsuccessful in whatever peace negotiations may have been un der way. the Federal toague is plan niag a coup to be attempted at the meeting of the minor leagues. Nov. 10, In Omaha. From hints dropped here and there, from statements made by Federal leaders, and from letters received by Class AA managers. It seems a certainty that this move will be made aa the last aggressive play of the Invaders. Their proposition, as it la to be outlined to the minor league, will be about like this: M You minor leaguers have had the toughest season In baseball history. Your only chance to play even, the money received from the sale of play era, la pretty much to the bad. because the majors don't dare purchase men whom we have already seen and coax ed away from organized ball. You’ll have an even worse struggle next sea son. Why shouldn’t you combine with us and announce anew era in base ball?" President Gilmore and several of his league's magnates will go to Oma ha and request an audience from the assembled minor leaguers. Between now and the date of tbe Omaha meet ing, the Federala will try to have a talk with David Fults. During recent months the Players' fraternity has been enlarged and extended till It takes In the more prominent minor leagues, and is la now poaslble to deal, through Fults. with the majority of representative ballplayers ’round aev eral circuits, as wall as with those on the major cluba. / • But it looks a/ if Fultz had decided, for the preseML at least, to keep away from league temptations. He has issifed a statement nt New York in which he says that the fraternity has no grievances of any weight; that he is now satisfied that there are enough major leagues, and that the fraternity has not let down the bars to the Federals. Hoppe Not King, Asserts De Oro NEW YORK, Oct 27.—Alfredo De Oro, the three-cushion billiard cham pion of the world, is out with a chal lenge to Willie Hoppe. De Oro re sents the declaration by Willie’s rela tives and friends that the balkline king is the greatest of all blUlardlats. He la anxious to prove that Willie Is not. for any sum up to SIO,OOO. “Hoppe and his admirers,’* said the Cuban, “seem to forget that there are many games of billiards besides balk line. To deserve the title of the great est of all bllllardists a man muat cer tainly to supreme In more than one branch of the game. “1 will play WilUe Hoppe a aeries of matches at any 10 games of billiards he cares to name, and will bet him SIO,OOO that 1 can beat him a major ity of the matches. I will furthermore suggest five games at different styles of play, at which I will meet him, and bet him $2,600 per match. These are balkline, three-cushion, English, pool and Spanish billiards. *Tf Hoppe wants to play me, he will have to do bo within the next few months, or I will refuse to meet him. I am getting old, and very soon will no longer bent my beat. You see, I was pool champion before Willie was born, and can’t last forever." De Oro Is one of the most interest ing characters the world of profes sional sport has known. He first won the pool championship, way back la 1887, and since first winning It haa loat but three championship mntcues in nil. At one time be held both the pool and t* ree-cuahJon titles nt the same time. De Oro always beta his own money on his matches, and invariably plays winner take all. • ■ 1 Record Crowd to See Wolgast and Welsh NEW YOI- K, Oct. 27.—One of the biggest crowds that ever attended n bout la New York is expected nt Mad ison Square garden, Nov. 2, when Lightweight Champion Freddie Welsh and tbe former titleholder.

It is understood here from authentic sources that Jimmy Callahan will again manage tbe White Box next year. It Is known that Jimmy and Commie have already had several conferences with plans for 1915 as the topic for discussion. The Sox did not make the showing expected of them this year under Cal lahan’s leadership, but the chief seems to have an acceptable alibi. Hal Chase jumped to th*» Feds, Lord quit baseball, and the Infield on which he bad counted much was ruined for the yeer. To rebuild that Inflel.l will be • Jlmmy’a’’ big task next spring. Os course. If be could develop a hitter or two. that would be considered, an achievement worth while. There has been nothing to date to indloate that Comlskey will retire this winter, making Callahan president anJ Kid Gleason manager.

He practiced place kicking a lot and ran tbe team through a short sig nal practice. The bad arm was band aged and appeared quite stiff, but Tommy declared that he would uot only play Saturday, but that h« would stick the game out. This is consider ably more than has been expected, and Yost is preparing to lose both Hughltt and Splawn during the con test. Asa protective measure, he is drilling Benton in the art of place ktcklng. and the big end ts doing befr ter than was even hoped for. The coaching staff was augmented yesterday by Willie Heston, Harry Hammond. Hugh White and Jimmy Watkln. all former Wolverine stars.

Bravery In Battle Honored by Britain According to a dispatch from Lon don, A. F.

Howard Buck, of Wlacon sin, was crowded off the all-western in 1913 by “Brute” Pontius, of Michigan, but he seems sure of the honor in 1914.

Baseball writers had difficulty finding “Rajah" who was reported to be having a final conference with of ficials of the Chicago Cubs. the hole through which the majority of the Syracuse galas sifted. The return of Hardwick. Pennock. Mahan et al. to the Harvard lineup has caused the Wolverines, who will go to Cambridge In two special trains, to ask odds of 3 to 1. Yost is giving particular attention to this line, which he hopes to bolster up to the pcint of checking Crimson rushes until Hughitt and company can stake the Malse and Blue to a few points via the strategy route. Upon such a program rests the sole hope of the Wolverines, and it will have to be carried out in a few minutes, as it Is not probable that Hughitt can long survive the hard tackling and block ing of the opposition. The team will leave for Cambridge tomorrow. TESREAU’S WEALTH 18 STILL MYSTERY NEW YORK.

Heinernann is after a camp site at Pass Christian. Miss., nine miles west of Gulfport, and connected with the Tiger hangout by railroad, trolley and water. The Paas was President Wilson's winter home dur ing the holiday vacation last year. If Heinernann gets the site, it is un derstood that the Yanks will invade Mississippi this spring for the first time since the days of ’64. In that event, there will be three major league teams training near this city, as the Reds will be at Alexan dria. La., and Heinernann hopes to hook them up in a memorable exhibi tion series. The Chlfeds will be at Shreveport, but whether Heinernann expects to hook up the Feds with the organised boys, he has not explained.

Harvard BOSTON BRAVES PUT A CRIMP IN FEDERAL PLANS Saved National League When Dope Had Organization Ready For Undertaker THIRD CIRCUIT NEVER PLANNED BY OUTLAWS Taking Over of Tener Territory When Crash Came Waa Hope of Newcomers BY HAROLD V. WILCOX. “Ultimatum Jim” Gilmore, of tht Federal circuit, can give expresaloe to whoops of defiance and pronuncloi to the effect that the outlaws have the organisation licked and on th« run until he is short of wind and blue in the face, but he cannot hon estly deny that the Boston Braves have. unYvng numerous other notable achievements, put an awful crimp in the hopes and plans of Messrs. 015 more, Wheeghinan, Ward, and their asaoclates. There is no question but that the daring adventurers who organised the Federal league, largely based their hopes upon the belief that the Na tional league was slipping, and slip ping hard and fast. The long relgu of “Jawn" McQraw, the evfcn longer mis rule of the late Charles Webb Murphy, petty squabbles galore, loss of Interest In cities which had tired of supporting consistent cellar cham pions. equally consistent world series disasters, all these things snd more had made It rough sledlng for the veteran circuit, and it looked as if the time wae ripe for a third organ ization to come in and uaurp the place of the league that had been slowly nearing the happy hunting ground ever since Harry Pulliam’s tragic 1 death. Asa matter of fact, the original idea which gave birth to the Fed eral league was not that of a third league, but of anew organisation to supplant oue already in existence. It was even charged that certain American league magnates, (or rea sons best known to themselves, were in sympathy with the idea. Probably this theory was given color by the fact that the raids of the newcomers was directed largely on the National league clubs. Early this summer it looked as i! everything was working out lovely. But along In July the Braves came to life, tore through the league with a mighty splash and wound up the sot son by that remarkable world series. And the Beaneaters carried the league along with them. Box offices all around the circuit suddenly dis covered that they existed for a pleas ant duty. At least four dubs, two of them new to the experience, found themselves pennant contenders at a critical time, and as the result of the whole affair, the National league was put on its feet and In a position to expect a big season next year. No wonder Gilmore says the out laws will fight They’ll have to fight, if they cannot make peace. And even If they do succeed in mixing up In a treaty pow wow, they must eg* pect to a& the eastern third or the country split up into three fields of endeavor instead of two, with them selves as the weak brother of the outfit. It was a right smart wallop that the Braves landed on the an atomy of the foiled Feds. When Gilmore reached Chicago from New York last night, he an nounced that each of the clubs In his circuit had anteed to the extent of $12,500, making a war chest of SIOO,- 000 available for use during the win ter and the coming season. All of which they will probably need for military purposes. The same com munique contained the announcement that BUI Fischer. Dodger catcher, had signed with the Chlfeds. “About $12,000 was involved (n these contracts, and they are abso lutely binding, bresnahan well un derstood the significance and ;he portunes of that side agreement when he signed it. and it Is Inconceivable that he would undertake to violate It. “I have every reason to believe Bresnahan Is satisfied with hia pret ent place. He dropped In to see me the other day to say good-bye for the year, and he was In here for about flge minutes. The report went out that he was delivering ‘ultimatums’ and arguing for an hour. That is not true. “At any rate. 1 am In a position to tie Roger up in the courts If be fries to desert us. and you can take that from me as being absolutely final.” It is claimed that the refusal rankled in the twirler’s bosom all year and that he Is now in a frame of mind to hurdle to the outlaws. In fact, he is credited with the statemant that he would play with any league that offered him SI,OOO more than Orlflth. This the Wards have announced that they will do. Orlfllth. however, says ha Is not worrying, and that he expacta Johnaan to drop around any day and frig IslS contract.
